Dac Zawson · 07/03/2017 at 17:01

G'day community,
I don't usually post my team but would be interested to see people's thoughts

DEF: Laird, Mills, Marchbank, Hampton, VW, Stewart (Ryan, Guthrie)
MID: Hannebery, Selwood, Treloar, Bontempelli, Shuey, Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara (SPP, Barrett, Hibberd)
RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)
FOR: Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Lynch, Gunston, Black, Miles (Strnadica, Eddy)

    Booma · 07/03/2017 at 17:17

    Grundy injured his calf today, ? just a corky but might need to watch him.

    :))) · 07/03/2017 at 19:47

    No danger no Gawn = no points

      Billy · 07/03/2017 at 20:04

      Yeah not sure how you've managed to go no Gawn, no danger and still have 4 rooks on field in defence? A lot riding on Beams and O'Meara's knees here

      Dac Zawson · 07/03/2017 at 20:15

      If I replaced Marchbank with a rookie and Hannebery or Selwood with Danger would your view of my team change much??

      Cheers for the feedback

        Billy · 07/03/2017 at 21:03

        Yes I think so. Or you could go from Grundy who's pulled a calf today up to Gawn. Theyre top priced probably, but their ceilings are so good you need at least one for captaincy reasons, which is such an underrated skill in SuperCoach.
        Though Danger has a soft early draw so could explode early. But I'd have one

    Steeeve · 07/03/2017 at 23:14

    No Danger, No Gawn, a backline that makes my skin crawl… I love it! Good luck son

Normally GnR · 07/03/2017 at 17:07

And just like that I notice I have Tuohy, Mills, O'meara, Swallow, Sandi, Nankervis, Roughy in the side. Normally I don't like midpricers but this year I've ended up with all these bad boys. What went wrong? I should say Mills and Nank the only two that weren't really on my radar before JLT. Is this crazy? All good players, all potential to perform. Maybe this is the midprice madness year? Or have I gone barking mad?

    Normally GnR · 07/03/2017 at 17:15

    And Beams!!! My god!

    Whitey · 07/03/2017 at 17:47

    I like Tuohy, I have posted why below. O'Meara,Beams and Swallow may be one too many in the midfield. Sandi is ok in my opinion and am assuming Nak=nk is a fwd backup to him. Roughy is a fallen premium. Mills is the only one that hasn't really proved himself SC wise. So after all that maybe two too many, try to find a rookie and upgrade another to premo

    Billy · 07/03/2017 at 20:07

    As a general rule, if they werent on your radar before the JLT then you're overreacting to their preseason form and youll get burnt.
    I have 4 of the other 5, all of whom fall in the 'fallen premium' bracket. Tuohy doesn't, so I won't pick him.

      hedski · 07/03/2017 at 20:30

      Had my eye on Zac since he came in for Boris, before jlt.

        Billy · 07/03/2017 at 20:59

        That's fair enough. If the JLT confirms a pre-existing idea it can be a valid choice, just don't pluck them out of mid air.
        My reason for not picking him is that his best season is an 81 average nd he costs about $450k.. don't see the value there. Worst case scenario I can pick him up at the byes for about 50k more than his starting price. Low reward and high risk selection for mine.

Clock Management · 07/03/2017 at 17:07

I see the podcast has been released, must be time to get a beer and some pizza

    INPieman · 07/03/2017 at 17:10

    I just closed the Tinder app

    BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 17:23

    Lubrication and tissues wouldn't go astray.

      INPieman · 07/03/2017 at 17:29

      Completely agree BB. KY & Kleenex top of the shopping list

Rivo · 07/03/2017 at 17:12

And what to do with Heeney now out too? Straight swap for Touk Miller?

    Redgumwon · 07/03/2017 at 19:26

    Maybe look at Higgins $426,400 and looks to be getting more midfield time? I'm going to go with him

      Rivo · 07/03/2017 at 19:32

      "Burn man" but Higgos favourite. Not sure.

        Redgumwon · 07/03/2017 at 19:41

        He's left me with burns at times as well. Looked very good so far and North need proven players to step up in the midfield after they moved on the old boys. Well worth the risk and Higgo can play when fit

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:46

    Caddy or Wingard. See how Touk goes in the last week of JLT to consider him

Tony · 07/03/2017 at 17:14

Please help me be as harsh as you like
Rance Adams laird Hampton VW t. Strewert (hibberd smith)

Dangerfield pendles treloar Rockliff Fyfe omeara swollow Powell- pepper (j.Barrett wigg Hewlett)

Gawn Sandilands. (Strndica)

Dahlhouse macrae caddy Roughead Bolton black (eddy Cameron[ruc])

    The BONT · 07/03/2017 at 17:23

    Almost like looking into a mirror except iv got Doc not Adams, Selwood not Rockliff and no caddy

    You can downgrade upgrade with O'meara and swallow

    Steeeve · 07/03/2017 at 23:12

    I have a lot of similar players, lack of ruck cover might be your main issue.

      Tony · 08/03/2017 at 07:36

      I'm hoping darcy cameron plays if he doesn't I might have to re think my forward line

JOSH K · 07/03/2017 at 17:37

Can I please get everyone's opinion on my current team, any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated 🙂

DEF: Adams, Laird, Vince, McGrath, Hampton, Vickers-Willis. (Stewart, Watson)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, JPK, Fyfe, Josh Kelly, D.Swallow, SPP. (Hibberd, Wigg, Jarman)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi. (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Greene, Ryder, Jarryd Roughead, Butler, Long. (Smith, Eddy)


    Kev · 07/03/2017 at 18:31

    McGrath hasn't shown enough to be seriously considered at that price. Watson is rookie listed, is he a chance for round 1?

BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 17:39

Thoughts on Matt Crouch?

    Marco_Polo94 · 07/03/2017 at 17:41

    The more I analyse his stats, the missing midfielders for the early rounds, the more I'm warming to him. He's currently my M5.

      BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 18:19

      My question is whether he will be a top 10 mid come seasons finish?

        Marco_Polo94 · 07/03/2017 at 18:24

        I think he'll be top 8 mids for the first 13 rounds…. 😉

    hedski · 07/03/2017 at 17:59

    Looks like Bernard Tomic.
    Not a fan of Bernie, I agree with Marco but he's my M6.
    Cheers BB.

      BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 18:20

      Cheers Hedski, I'm contemplating his selection but whether he can take his game to another level and match the top premiums I'm not sure. Really want 8 of the top 10 mids in my team come seasons end, does he meet that criteria?

        hedski · 07/03/2017 at 18:40

        I'm going with Marco's thinking re early scoring, and there'll be lots of trading going on before the end. Like I said have him at M6 atm so a bit of a gamble, still very fluid.

      TOMAHAWK · 07/03/2017 at 22:59

      I've been saying that for years!! Thank u! Bernard Crouch.

    jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:45

    I'm my team at this stage fellas – #NextSCBeast

      SuperSarah6 · 08/03/2017 at 08:22

      In my team too Jock. Can't go passed my own teams next SC Beast!!!

    Liam · 07/03/2017 at 20:40

    Locked for me. Can see 110 plus.

    Leeds17 · 07/03/2017 at 22:14

    In my team current;ly really hard yeah for a breakout contender with so many fallen premos or fallen breakouts like O'Meara and Swallow.

    What I love about Crouch is he doesn't really need to improve as a footballer (though obviously that would be great and he's a chance too) he just needs to spend more time on the park, if his TOG gets up to around 88-90% he will be a genuine premium scorer

Whitey · 07/03/2017 at 17:42

Pure gold boys, love it each week. Ok here is my justification for Zac Tuohy…

Reason 1:
He was up against the two best SC defenders at his old club. Simpson and Docherty were beasts and were the rebounding backmen for Carlton. He never got a chance to accumulate the ball.

Reason 2:
Geelong have gone out to get him for a specific job to replace Enright. I only see Thurlow as competition for being a rebounding backmen. Ruggles burns the ball and Mackie is too long in the tooth. Taylor has gone forward, Lonergan and Henderson key position.

Reason three:
His DE is very good and he hardly misses a game.

Reason 4:
I pray to the SC gods every night that I am correct.

    hedski · 07/03/2017 at 18:01

    Amen Whitey.

      jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:44

      Cheers Whilo – I respect your thought processes here son!

    Captain Risky · 08/03/2017 at 09:28

    Plus, most who leave Carlton play better elsewhere!

Marco_Polo94 · 07/03/2017 at 17:48

Terrific stuff lads and as always have hit the nail on the head. The only thing I'll say in defence of the mid priced madness this pre-season is the point Higgo mentioned – the clear distinction between a fallen premium and a genuine mid pricer. In my current team I have only 1 genuine mid pricer, and a few fallen premiums.

My reasoning for this is how few mid priced rookies we have. I don't want SPP as my M8 scoring me 60 each week when I could have Swallow scoring me 85+ there instead. The injury concerns are higher yes, however the lure of extra points each round is currently outweighing that. I'm leaving myself some cash in the kitty to deal with any injury problems that pop up, it certainly could go tits up but I must admit the balance of my team looks a whole lot better when I approach the season with this strategy. Loving that Goldy ownership rating btw!

    jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:42

    Top stuff Marco. Could be something to that stratagem of leaving a bit in the kick to cover an inevitable midpriced failure/injury with a premium. Might be worth some unpacking

Nick Wealands · 07/03/2017 at 17:53

Great stuff fellas, it's funny how every season we throw out the window, what punched us in the arse the previous year.
Be mainly guns and rookies for me with maximum of 2 mid price selections

    jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:39

    G'day Nick! Yep, forgetting pain is part of what allows us to tick as human beings. I like the way you're heading here mate, which two do you reckon you'll include?

      Nick Wealands · 07/03/2017 at 21:49

      I'm considering Nankervis in the forward line for coverage of the big Sandiland man, I also think he'll be a beast and will allow me to start Matty Crouch. Also thinking of settling on Swallow for some easy cash generation.
      It's a long 23 round season so plenty of time to incorporate the POD's then, but for the start of the season safety is a crucial element

        Nick Wealands · 07/03/2017 at 21:53

        Technically that leaves me with 3 mid-pricers but Sandi is a genuine fallen premium and Swallow could be regarded the same

          Dee · 08/03/2017 at 14:51

          Nick what about Roughnut?

Seb · 07/03/2017 at 17:58

I wait for these weekly podcasts all week, so pumped to listen a bit later, I refresh the jock Reynolds website hundreds of times on a Tuesday waiting for it! Their legendary!

    jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:37

    Thanks very much Seb! Hope you enjoy today's show mate

BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 18:09

Cross McCluggage off the rookie list. Injured ankle out for 3-4 weeks.

    hedski · 07/03/2017 at 18:16

    Think it was from sidestepping a contest and a poo nugget hit him..

    Northernsoul74 · 07/03/2017 at 18:56

    Bombers Ridley also ruled out early on.

      jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:37

      Cheers Browny another bites the dust ey

hedski · 07/03/2017 at 18:23

Awesome work again fellas, trying to minimise the madness to minimal but its hard.
There'll be some crazy restructuring going on before round 1.
Current risks. Tuohy, Fyfe, Crouch, Beams, Sandi, Rough, Nank + all rookies.
P.S. I've said plenty of times that a few of these blokes won't be in my side but meh.

    Kev · 07/03/2017 at 18:41

    Fyfe (49%), Rough (39), Sandi (32) look to be popular community risks, hedski

    Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 18:52

    lol Hedski don't worry I think we're all guilty of a little hypocrisy at some point through the preseason. Personally I slagged of Nankervis about a week ago, he's now nestling in comfortably at F4 for JibJibFC.

      jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 19:36

      I'm guilty as sin on Sandilands lads!

      hedski · 07/03/2017 at 19:49

      Hey Jib I think you beat me in the bbl sc gf?
      Oily torso Crouch league?

        Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 20:40

        Wasn't me mate

          hedski · 07/03/2017 at 20:47

          My bad was Jed's Jets.

            Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 21:40

            Bloody hell that's a magnificent league name

              hedski · 07/03/2017 at 22:04

              Had Jock Higgo Patch in it, gave them a spankin!
              Is only pretend to the real stuff tho.

Jordan · 07/03/2017 at 19:27

Perhaps Allison gets a sneak now can't see mcluggage playing the first couple of weeks

    Beastiano · 07/03/2017 at 19:33

    maybe even lyons_

CD96 · 07/03/2017 at 19:45

Here's my team would like some feedback brain is hurting trying to find the right layout/structure.

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Vince, Hampton, T. Stewart, Vickers-Willis, (Newman, Otten)
MIDS: Danger, Pendles, Kennedy, Hannebery, Fyfe, Beams, Powell-Pepper, Barrett, (Wiggs, Pickett, Hibberd (Nth)
RUCKS: Gawn, Sandilands, (Strnadica)
FWDS: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Higgins, Roughead, Bowes, Black, (Houston, Cameron)

107k left over still.

    Dac Zawson · 07/03/2017 at 20:21

    With the remaining cash could upgrade Vince and/or Higgins to premos that are more likely to finish Top 8 in their respective positions such as Montagna and Gunston. I've specified those two as I assume Vince and Higgins are in your team as PODs so those replacements still keep your team with a point of difference.

    However, with the remaining cash you may want to make some risky decisions that may push you higher in your league/overall ranking.

      CD96 · 07/03/2017 at 21:18

      I had montagna originally but an interrupted pre season had me a little worried and not worth the risk whereas sandiland is for example.

      Higgins/Caddy are there because there is literally no one else I feel comfortable picking in the foward line at this stage. Anyone else that pops up that looks the good ill almost certainly upgrade the 2.

      The dilemma I have with the spare cash is that I feel that if I spend it right now then it feels like I'm spending for the sake of it. could be handy at the start of the year for corrective trades.

    Kev · 07/03/2017 at 20:24

    Looking good, CD. Obviously made the call to not go with cover for Sandi, hope he pulls through

      CD96 · 07/03/2017 at 21:20

      Thanks Kev, and yeah I bloody hope so. If nankervis plays well JLT 3 then I my try squeeze him in but I have never been one to have ruck cover in the fwd line. I see the reasoning behind it but I have confidence in Sandilands.

        Browncow · 08/03/2017 at 00:33

        Like the look of your team CD. Vince was on the radio this evening. Said he respected Edwards and MacLeod for going to half back late in their careers – and was happy to help out in the middle when required after spending 75% there last year.

    Billy · 07/03/2017 at 21:44

    It's a good structure mate. Most are running with heavy midfields this year.
    Not much to fault really, good bye coverage and a few PODs. There's a few risks there but a bit of risk is a good thing. Well done

      CD96 · 07/03/2017 at 23:16

      Cheers Billy appreciate it

      I feel like there is still a piece missing so hopefully JLT 3 can potentially shine some light on that issue for me

Simon · 07/03/2017 at 19:56

Thoughts on my team please
Back: shaw, Adams, laird, mills, Hampton, otten. Ryan, Stewart
Mid: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Zorko, Fyfe, omeara, swallow, pep-Powell. Barrett, wig, Pickett
Ruck: Gawn, Sandilands. Strnadica
Fwd: Dahlhaus, franklin, Roughead, Taranto, black, begley. Eddy, cameron

I have 34,700 left to spend

    Kev · 07/03/2017 at 20:21

    Like the Zorko pick, Simon. Wouldn't be surprised to see Taranto line up round 1, concerned that he can manage enough games in succession

Rolfey · 07/03/2017 at 19:57

Great Podcast!
I remember the pain!! lumumba.. daniel rich… however..

Supercoach is all about point value for money. I am huge guns n rookies advocate. Always have been. But this year more so then any other, we have a limitted supply of guns n rookies. Yes there will be burn man everywhere. While its important we do not forget the failed lumumba and riches out there, we must also not forget the success stories.

While picking the failed rich last year, I also selected the successful Aaron hall. The very successful Sam Docherty.
Players will breakout. Its not so much about not selecting a potential breakout player, rather just doing significant research and bloody picking the right one!!

Especially in a year where there are very little selections in the backline and forward line that I truly look at and say they are worth the coin. Even your Jack Macrae.. in a stacked doggies midfield (bont, hunter, libba, picken etc), perhaps his role has changed to play a more outside game which can translate into his supercoach average falling. Your Bernie Vince who I honestly cant see any upside in selecting. A sam docherty (dont get me wrong I am as bigger fan of this bloke as any) who has only had one year of averaging above 88 and will cost almost 600k, most likely experiencing a lot more attention which can quite certainly translate into a significant drop in price throughout the year. The truth of the matter is that we do not have the same year in year out proven premiums in our defence and forward line as we have once before.

My advise community. Do not pick a player based off of some out of the blue form. Im not saying go and fill your team with 30 midpricers because I can tell you I'd never start with more then one or two potential breakout players. Do your research. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. But if you have a feeling on a bloke, after doing your research…


    jockreynolds · 07/03/2017 at 20:11

    Hard to express how much I enjoyed that read Rolfey – FANTASTIC words of advice!!!

      Rolfey · 07/03/2017 at 22:11

      Cheers Jock love your work!!

    ruckmansYEAR · 08/03/2017 at 17:49

    good call. well written. gunna have a couple more midys than yourself but as you said, back in the research you've done and ride the wave.

Tommo09 · 07/03/2017 at 20:10

Replacement for Isaac Heeney?
Can afford anyone
Have Dahl, Lynch and Rough as "premos"

    BrownlowBoy · 07/03/2017 at 20:14

    Macrae or Roo

      Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 22:51

      Maybe Buddy if you're up for the ride?

    Lazza · 08/03/2017 at 12:49

    With Mitchell at WCE the mid-filed will be streaming forward – I'd be looking at JJK. If you can find the extra $100k.
    Alternatively, with Heeney out, Taranto is looking likely and will give you $225K cash back to upgrade another possie to a premium.

    Not a problem for me … like Mc Lugg & Grath ….. Heeney & Mills don't offer value .. none are in my team.

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 13:35

      Mills offers alot of value.

      Compare his price to Docherty & Simmo. save $170k. say that converts to 34pts (i divide the dollars by $5k per point). If Docherty or Simmo score 120pts (unrealistic i know), Mills only need to score 86 to match the dollar investment. i like that sort of value.

        Derek · 08/03/2017 at 13:38

        the $170k saved will get you a Grundy instead of the Nank!

          Tommo09 · 08/03/2017 at 15:32

          Heeney is in my fwd line

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:44

    Caddy or Wingard are viable options around the same price

    Shake n bake · 08/03/2017 at 15:50


Timchief · 07/03/2017 at 21:08

Thoughts on my team this far. As usual its change significantly daily.

Doc, laird, Adams, Hampton, evw, Stewart, ryan, hibbard

Danger, jpk, treloar, coniglio, Fyfe, mitchell, o'meara, spp, Brodie, Barrett, brown (Coll)

Gawn, sandi, stnadica

Roo, Macrae, nank, thomas, shoey, Pickett, miles, eddy.

O'meara and sandi should appreciate.
Nank for ruck cover. Rookies to change as season starts.

    Billy · 07/03/2017 at 21:40

    Don't mind it, similar to mine. I don't like having the ruck cover for Sandi personally. If he gets injured then just trade him don't stuff around by keeping him on the bench and wait for his giant 34 year old body to heal. Ask yourself if you'd pick Nank if he was FWD only. I wouldn't personally, but if you would then back him in.
    Not sure about Thomas either. I haven't followed his preseason much tbh but I havent heard much about him so I think he'd be a long shot to play early. Save yourself 70k with a cheaper rook.

Gawdk · 07/03/2017 at 21:21

What do we reckon with the floating zero for the start of the season? I like the idea of Myers to start on the bench save a trade to have to get him in later. Or just go a that freo $102,000 mid or no floating 0 at the start?

Love a discussing, cheers

    Billy · 07/03/2017 at 21:36

    Nah Myers won't play until about Round 4, which means his price won't go up till Round 6, by which time another cow could make you $100-150k then you can trade him in.
    Currently I have Strnadica at F8 for the 0 and Preuss in at R3.
    Floating donut is important imo, getting your captain right is vital

      Gawdk · 07/03/2017 at 21:52

      Thanks billy, with strndica at f8 are you imposing your captain/VC may be a forward?

        Billy · 07/03/2017 at 21:56

        It doesn't matter what position the VC is. As long as they play before Strnadica

    Derek · 07/03/2017 at 23:12

    Has to have DPP

    Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 18:45

    Decent idea, am considering myself. Minor problem is that Myers can't be used to loop Danger in R2 vs nth.

The BONT · 07/03/2017 at 21:24

What is all the fuss about Matt Crouch is there something i missed

    Nick · 07/03/2017 at 21:38

    He averaged 110 in the second half of the season, and the crows midfield is very slim with injuries at the moment

      Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 22:50

      Crows also have a really soft start to the year with lots of home games against weaker opposition.

      Normally GnR · 08/03/2017 at 09:15

      He averaged 104 second half of 2016.

    Clokey · 08/03/2017 at 10:30

    Gday Bont. If you had have asked the same question this time last year almost everyone here would have told you that he was the slow brother and would never be as good Brad, every team I posted with Matt was laughed at.
    All the love for matt this year is just making up for all the hate last year. He's still not a top 20 mid though

Lazy Susan · 07/03/2017 at 21:32

Any mail on whether both Saints rucks will start? If not I'm genuinely considering starting Sandi and Longer. And yes…I have lost the plot.

    Sainter · 07/03/2017 at 21:51

    As a saints fan I personally feel Hickey should be number 1 ruck and longer shouldn't play, hickey had great year last year and should improve even more, but for some reason it looks like longer has been taking ruck duties (or at least half half). Longer looks to be playing round 1.

      Lazy Susan · 07/03/2017 at 21:59

      Cheers Sainter. I agree re Hickey, but he seems to be out of favour for some reason. If Longer goes solo in rd 1 at $260k I may not be able to resist.

JDP · 07/03/2017 at 21:55

Wingard or Caddy
Can the community please help with my uncertainty…….

    Holty · 07/03/2017 at 22:59

    Wingard proved on the weekend he will go missing in games. Seems he loses interest from time to time which isnt good when playing for Port who will struggle this year. Caddy seems to be enjoying his new club. Not in my team but apart from injury, cant see him letting you down

    crowls · 07/03/2017 at 23:00

    Got to go Caddy. Wingard is all over the place. Caddy will be in the guts all year at Richmond easy to see him improving 5 points on last year which will make him a top 5-6 fwd.

    Go caddy · 09/03/2017 at 07:52

    Caddy 100%

Seb · 07/03/2017 at 22:02

Thoughts on Ainsworth?

    Jib_Jib · 07/03/2017 at 22:47

    Good job security. Limited scoring potential. Expensive.

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:43

    Better options around that price. Could nearly $100k and get a cheaper rookie

The Ranger · 07/03/2017 at 22:34

Great podcast lads, very timely warnings re the mid price/injury madness, it always happens around this time of year.
I'll be sticking with 13 keepers (3,5,2,3) plus Roughie and Swallow and maybe one guess at a breakout contender.
Injuries are always a killer, last years winner had to make seven injury trades and that was without having a load of injury risk to start with.

Zee888 · 07/03/2017 at 22:58

anyone else avoid putting FLOGS in their team? Hate barracking for 'em. Sorry Selwood but there's just no room for ya mate- flogometer off the charts.

    Cr0magn0n · 08/03/2017 at 02:21

    As in Joel Selwood?

    Loop · 08/03/2017 at 05:11

    I'm assuming you're talking about the speeding. Do you have a licence? I challenge you to not go over the speed limit when you overtake another car.

      Kev · 08/03/2017 at 10:12

      I have enough trouble not going over the speed at all, Loop :p

    BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2017 at 09:13

    Avoid him at your peril

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 11:18

    Flogometer off the charts reading your post.

    Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 18:47

    No, because I want to win SC, not go to their birthday party.

    Tibor · 11/03/2017 at 09:15

    Amen brother re the flogs but I wouldn't have considered Goddard or jack Riewoldt anyway….

James · 07/03/2017 at 23:03

Instead of starting swallow is at a pod selection to start with libberatore or just a waste of coin

    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 00:24

    If liba gets back to his best, could be a great pick. But the bulldogs game plan has changed which is more open. Liba loves the contested ball in tight. Unless their gameplan changes, cant see him get back to that 110+ input

crowls · 07/03/2017 at 23:05

Thoughts on Mills.
I have him at D3 atm. Not really comfortable with it. Whilst heeney is out he may get mid time and score ok. But realistically as second year player I see him as high 70 low 80 avg for the year. Got 40K to spend as well as trade him out. Options are Touhy, possible large increase if plays enrights role.
Others Jake lloyd, Hamish Hartlett and Jamie McMillan. I quite like LLoyd as a POD and McMillan could step up this year. Really dont think any of them will make top 10 defenders though. Maybe Touhy could

    John James · 08/03/2017 at 17:36

    I have Toughy at D3 and Mills D4 and am very comfortable with it.

    Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 18:49

    Lloyd > Mills

Derek · 07/03/2017 at 23:08

I have a riddle for everyone……

What is the difference between The Nank and TBC of 2015?

…………. nothing!

Oh the pain, the pain…..

    Browncow · 08/03/2017 at 00:21

    Thanks for the reminder Derek. I had blocked out the TBC experience!

    SuperSarah6 · 08/03/2017 at 09:04

    Didn't fall for TBC, not falling for The Nank!
    Has played no-one so far. A sore Jacobs and a Ryder coming back after 12 months off… hardly of Gawn or Goldstein quality.
    Be interested to see how he goes against Grundy this week… although he's got a corked calf so the jury may remain out.
    Another factor to consider is that they were games 1 and 2 of the preseason. He's at a new club trying to prove himself, playing against established players who are going at half pace… it all stinks of burn man to me!

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 11:18

    The difference is I'd consider Nank but never TBC?

    Pinger · 08/03/2017 at 13:24

    To compare Nank to TBC of 2015 is shortsighted & blinded by the pain that was inflicted on those that picked him.

    In 2015 injury "riddled" TBC played no preseason games & was caught up in the full throws of the Essendon supplements saga.

    As it is a riddle you may have to look further for the answer.

    Nank reminds me more of a beast known as "The Mummy". If you look to the year 2010 & then compare these two it may become clearer.

    I am not saying pick Nank but I wouldn't discard him completely. He actually may be the one that helps ease the pain that still cuts deep.

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 13:30

      very good points.

      I think that most people are picking the Nank purely on the DPP status. That is the only reason TBC was picked back in 2015.

      If you can see somthing else in the bloke that would suggest he is worth picking up on ability alone, then go for it. i can't see it.

      the big thing going for him is he doesn't have alot of competition for his place, but a few bad games and that could all change.

        If fact hunt · 08/03/2017 at 21:46

        Saw the Nani live on the weekend. He got killed at the centre bounces when Ryder was in there. Can only complete with lessor ruckman

          Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:15

          Really? Got killed? That sounds alarming for anyone that picked him.

    The Ranger · 08/03/2017 at 23:31

    Can anyone remember there ever being a breakout ruckman?

      Rick Grimes · 09/03/2017 at 09:52

      Gawn, Martin?

      Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:09

      He is only 22. Breakout is possible. DPP is also tempting. Can see the attraction.

    Gawdk · 09/03/2017 at 07:56

    Hi Derek can you please give me a riddle for Omera and swallow aswell as I do not want them.

    Thanks 🙂

      Derek · 09/03/2017 at 18:27

      Omera looks a lot like BCrouch to me.

Steeeve · 07/03/2017 at 23:09

Great stuff as always legends! Can't avoid the madness at the moment! Would love any feedback…
Back: Shaw, Rance, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Hibberd (Vickers-Willis, Guthrie)
Mid: Danger, Bont, Fyfe, T Mitch, Beams, OMeara, D Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Brodie, Barrett, Wigg)
Ruck: Goldy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughy, Nanscrevis, Pickett, Long (Eddy, Black)
$40,000 in the warchest…

    Bluebaggers · 08/03/2017 at 01:45

    I like this team, balanced in each line.

      Steeeve · 08/03/2017 at 23:45

      Thanks mate! Feels heavy in defence but hopefully I can set and forget there, upgrade only two spots for Doherty and whoever else is putting their hand up.

        The Ranger · 09/03/2017 at 00:10

        I can see ya reasoning but I'm not sure about going to D4 in the def line this year Steeeve.
        There's some decent rookies in the def line and you don't wanna be short on cash generation.

          Steeeve · 09/03/2017 at 09:32

          I have made a change. Think I like it…
          Shaw OUT. Will be had for a cheaper price and may be targeted by forward-line taggers.

          O'Meara and Swallow BOTH OUT. Cripps and Matt Crouch IN.

Jake · 07/03/2017 at 23:42

Is Nike Riewoldt a worthy pick?

    Jake · 07/03/2017 at 23:50


    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 00:20

    Id say so. Should be a keeper but u are probably buying him at his peak

    poloko48 · 08/03/2017 at 06:15

    Just do it

    Liam · 08/03/2017 at 08:23

    He's in my team.

Crouch and Swallow · 07/03/2017 at 23:46

Nanscrevis or Wanknervous??

Snowsky · 07/03/2017 at 23:49

Jeremy Howe?

Take a look at the back end of last year, plus good JLT form, plus he is durable…

Yet I have seen him in not a single team…

    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 00:18

    Few of us talked about him in last few posts. Ive had him since the start.

      JustAmug · 09/03/2017 at 15:59

      Same, expecting a solid year

    Lazza · 08/03/2017 at 12:59

    For me it is Howe vs Adams … Going with Adams. (I tend not to have multiple players from the same team across each line until after the bye rounds). Ig Adams goes down … then I will move Howe in.

    Shaken bake · 09/03/2017 at 17:56

    great selection

    Tibor · 11/03/2017 at 09:20

    When Jeremy is good he is great but goes missing big time both in a game and across a season…

Dave2008 · 07/03/2017 at 23:51

Current team with Sandi below. Big decision I think for a lot of people is whether to go with him (risk v reward) or the set and forget Gawn and Goldy.

D Doc Laird Adams Hampton Vickers-Willis Ryan Stewart Williamson
M Danger Pendles Hannaberry Fye T Mitchell Omeara D Swallow SPP Pickett HIbberd Drew
R Gawn Sandi Strnadica
F N Roo MacRae Dalihaus Roughy Black Dear Hulet Eddy

Some rookies are just place holders…Hulet Williamson Drew. No back up for Sandi as I dont like any GC or Port players until after the RD 9 bye (D Swallow the exception as where are the mid rookies?)

J Steven Treloar Drew Goldi Caddy

Pendles Hannaberry D Swallow Sandi N Roo

    Jake · 08/03/2017 at 00:06

    Option 2, no brainer

      BlakeyP · 08/03/2017 at 11:38

      Have to agree option 2 is a no brainer

Webspyda · 07/03/2017 at 23:53

T Adams, R Laird, C Mills, A McGrath, C Hampton, A Otten. E VW, T Stewart

R Dangerfield, A Treloar, N Fyfe, D Beams, D Parish, J O'Meara, D Swallow, T Taranto. S PP, J Barret, M Hibberd

M Gawn, A Sandilands. B Preuss

N Riewoldt, L Dahlhaus, J Macrae, J Roughhead, T Nankervis, C McCarthy. R Shoenmakers, D Cameron

    John James · 08/03/2017 at 17:48

    I wouldn't have McGrath as D4 and your Mids could use one better quality player,I like to have at least 4 locks there.

Cr0magn0n · 08/03/2017 at 03:41

Does anyone have the good oil on which Sydney rookie/s, if any, might get their chance in light of Heeney's illness?

    poloko48 · 08/03/2017 at 06:14

    Report on Swans website saying Melican a big chance to debut

      Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 18:51

      What. Who the f*** is that 😮

        poloko48 · 08/03/2017 at 21:28

        $123K DEF, check rookie spreadsheet, from memory has done OK.

          Dee · 09/03/2017 at 09:27

          haha Moustachio…. it's a bit like that isn't it mate.

poloko48 · 08/03/2017 at 06:35

Righto, have restructured just slightly to see how Nankilands looks. Have been able to bring in Matt Crouch (Mouch) instead of a rookie so MIDS look pretty decent:

DEF: Simpson, Heater, Silk, Hampton, Hibberd, Newman (Stewart, Guthrie)
MID: Danger, Pendles, JPK, TeenWolf, Prestia, Mouch, JOM, SPP (Barrett, Wigg, Allison)
RUC: Nank, Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahl, Buddy, Macrae, Roughy, Bowes, Pickett (Begley, Eddy)

I still have $106K left over to help if Nank doesn't work out or Sandy falls over his toe.


    John James · 08/03/2017 at 22:13

    You may laugh but who is TeenWolf.

      Jake · 09/03/2017 at 00:07

      nat fyfe

        John James · 09/03/2017 at 17:33

        OK thanks for that Jake,I think most teams would have him at M4,I do.

Steven · 08/03/2017 at 06:44

Kinda new to this fellas just wondering what yas reckon about my team
Shaw laird howe hampton mcgrath Stewart ( vwe & newman)
Danger hannebery treloar coniglio prestia jager brodie powell ( florent, myers, picklet )
Gawn sandi ( cameron )
Macrea t.greene nank taranto cluggage schoenmakers ( dear and maynard

    Steven · 08/03/2017 at 06:45

    Ps. Got 350000 in the bank

    BlakeyP · 08/03/2017 at 11:37

    Clug has gone down with injury. 350k is alot in the bank maybe use the money to upgrade Clug to a premium Fwd which pushes Nank to F4 which is a lot better spot for him. Like the DEF but dont think McGrath will warrant his price tag downgrade to cheaper rookie. Do you Believe Prestia will be top 10 mid? If not he is not worth the pick and an upgrade to a top 10 would be better.
    Thanks Blake

    Kev · 08/03/2017 at 12:25

    Love the Howe pick! Huge POD.

    Taranto shown plenty preseason but doubts are there over the likelihood of him getting enough successive games

    Thomas · 09/03/2017 at 10:39

    Dahlhaus in for Greene and upgrade Prestia to Fyfe. Taranto probably wont get a game and if so, may find it hard to keep his spot due to the endless talent pool. Mcgrath probably wont play either due to essendon easing him in,

Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 07:39

Help please.
Miller & Black or Naknkervis & Ainsworth?

    SuperSarah6 · 08/03/2017 at 09:33

    Definitely not Ainsworth. He won't score enough points as a small forward to make enough cash to warrant selection.
    Miller and Black for me.

      Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 10:20

      Thanks! Been struggling with this one since Heeney went down. Miller a risk still but has capacity to average 90. Love Nankervis but still not sure he will do the same – time will tell.

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:42

    Nankervis + rookie + $100k would be better

      Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 21:23

      Thanks Danners. Still not sold on Nankervis. Which rookie to go with him? Already have Taranto, Eddy, Miles (M10) and Cameron (F7).

Jack · 08/03/2017 at 08:56

Been changing my team around. Would like peoples thoughts or advice

def – adams – laird – vince – hampton – otten – willis – (stewart – smith)
mid – dangerfiels – ablet -pendilbury – kennedy – selwood – fyfe – omeara – spp (barret – wigg – miles)
ruck – sandi – nank (preus)
fwd – dahl – mcrae – caddy – petracca – black – houten ( eddy – cammeron)

    Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 09:14

    Like most picks here except rucks. You need Gawn or Goldy at R1. Petraca a risk at F4 though most are in that spot. Nank a much safer option at F4/5 but still a risky pick.

    BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2017 at 10:07

    First team I've seen with Gaz in it, ownership will jump massively if he tears it up this week in the JLT

      Woody · 08/03/2017 at 15:11

      I have had Gaz from day 1… im hoping he does stink it up…:)

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 12:34

    4 mid pricers

    only 1 (sandi) is a fallen premium.

    the odds of non fallen premium mid pricers doing well are very low. Having 3 out of 4, you are stacking the odds massively against yourself.

Thomas · 08/03/2017 at 08:57

Which one out of Priddis, Rocky, TMitch, Zorko?
Midfield premos currently are: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Treloar, Fyfe

I was thinking Priddis due to his strong finish to the year last season.

    Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 09:10

    Priddis for me. Consistent premo.

    BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2017 at 10:06


    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 11:15

    TMitch or Priddis

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 12:30

      i like Pridis bye round, but the uncertainly of the SMitch effect would make me not pick him (it may turn out better for him).

      TMitch has the benefit of SMitch leaving the hawks, so i'll be getting him.

    John James · 08/03/2017 at 18:02

    I have Zorko at M3 and did have T.Mitch at M5 but changed him to M.Crouch.So going on that I guess Zorko,but Mitch would be cheaper.

THE NANK · 08/03/2017 at 09:26

how to I find out how many teams a player is in

    Colby · 08/03/2017 at 09:43

    Click on players name

    BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2017 at 10:06

    Players then coaches choice

Winter · 08/03/2017 at 10:14

DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Newman (Ryan, Stewart)
MID: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Sloane, Fyfe, Beams, Swallow, SPP (Wigg, Pickett, Hibberd)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: JJK, Dahlhaus, Roughy, Nankervis, Black, Eddy (Pickett, Cameron)
20k left

Have a fair few mid prices but idk who I'd cut out?

    HoleyFrijoles · 08/03/2017 at 10:47

    Maybe one of the Picketts 😉

Steve · 08/03/2017 at 10:43

Im just about convinced on bringing in Matty Crouch community. Only problem is with my current structure I can only fit him in at M6 which is currently occupied by a Nathaniel Fyfe.

Bring in Crouch and pocket the cash or stay with a discounted Fyfe that is very likely to go down?

Im already picking JOM, Swallow in the mids so Crouch could be a good pick to also offset some risk.

All thoughts and feelings appreciated community!

    HoleyFrijoles · 08/03/2017 at 10:48

    Fyfe is the most selected player for a reason. He will be a top 3 average if he stays on the park. If you really want Crouch it shouldn't be at the expense of the Fyfenator

      Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 11:15


    Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 18:54

    If you are even entertaining Crouch over Fyfe, you have suffered some kind of cortical overload. Reset immediately.

Seb · 08/03/2017 at 10:47

Changed my team around a bit to make it a bit more unique,

DEF: Shaw, rance, mills, Hampton, VW, otten (Stewart, Guthrie)

MID: danger, hannberry, treloar, Fyfe,titch, crouch, swallow, SPP( Myers, Barrett, wiggs)

RUC: Gawn, sandy (preuss)

FWD: dahl, ,McRae, Gunston, roughy, black, Houston (strandica, eddy)

Bye round 13 is a problem for me.
20k in the bank
Would love to hear your thoughts, cheers

    Seb · 08/03/2017 at 11:36


    Kev · 08/03/2017 at 12:29

    Looks good, Seb. Assume Str is your F7 for loophole purposes.

    Have another look at Rance. You don't want your premo's having injury interrupted preseasons.

      Seb · 08/03/2017 at 12:48

      Okay, you reckon laird is a better pick, picked rance for a more of a POD pick but I wasn't aware of rances injury troubles, cheers Kev

Thomas · 08/03/2017 at 10:59

Is this premo bye structure any good?
Round 9: 0
Round 11: 5
Round 12: 2
Round 13: 5

The round 11 spread is pretty good, with 1 out from each line except forward line being 2. But in round 13, got 3 midfielders out which could be an issue.

    neil demons delight · 08/03/2017 at 13:47

    why is round 13 with 3 mids out a problem its the best18 regardless of where they line up and it wont matter too much whether you have 1 or4 from a given line as long as you have 18 on field

Sana · 08/03/2017 at 10:59

Can anyone give me their reasons not to pick Zorko?

One game below 86 all season in 2016 is solid. Will Beams stuff him up?

    Thomas · 08/03/2017 at 11:12

    consistent but only 4 games above 120, Lacking the real high ceiling of Danger, pendles, Hanners etc

      Sana · 08/03/2017 at 11:37

      This is a good point. Big scores or consist 110s. Will never be a captain selection.

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 11:14

    Will make a good upgrade target once he's lost up to 100K?

      Sana · 08/03/2017 at 11:37

      Possibly. Be good to get a decent look at the effect Beams has on him

        Sana · 08/03/2017 at 11:39

        Obviously if he dropped as much as 100K you'd proibably lose interest…

    Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 11:16

    I'll give you a number of reasons. Danger, Pendles, Jpk, Hanners, Ablett, rocky, Treloar, Fyfe, Sloane, Priddis, Bont etc. Yeah hey could all finish higher than Zorko. You need to decide whether you think Zorko will be top 8 mid compared to all these guys.

      Sana · 08/03/2017 at 11:39

      I'll take it that you think all those guys are a better pick? Fair enough, they well could be.

        Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 12:06

        Not one knows the answer to that. But they're all proven.

          Derek · 08/03/2017 at 12:19

          i'd take a proven premium every day of the week. Zorko is not in that category yet.

            Sana · 08/03/2017 at 16:24

            Yep, fair enough, thanks fellas

              John James · 08/03/2017 at 18:14

              One thing though just about all those named cost more than Zorko,so you get what you pay for,had him in my fwds last year,just moved him into the mids this year.

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:40

    Beams is back, was drafted as a mature aged. Last season was his first season of 105+ (only averaged 100+ twice). There are better options around

Toddgood1 · 08/03/2017 at 11:58

Need help have 160 k left
Backs: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Scharenberg, Hampton, Hibberd ( Newman, Stewart)
Mids: Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, Zorko, Beams , Omera, Swallow, A.McGrath ( SPP, Barret, Pickett)
Rucks: Gawn,Sandi (Preuss)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Caddy, Roughead, Nankervis, Bowes, Gallucci ( Black, Bolton)

    Seb · 08/03/2017 at 12:01

    McGrath is to pricy

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:31

      I don't mind McGrath.

      Has DPP, plays in defence for a weak team. Will play. They say he is quality.

      Has been forgotten about because of other decent cheap defence rookies. POD

    Kev · 08/03/2017 at 12:22

    Shaz hasn't really caught the eye. Plenty of backline rooks to chose from.

    M5-7 makes me nervous. All 3 had LTI problems.

    Gallucci unlikely I reckon. Few ahead of him at the Crows. Dimma has said Bolton is developing with other draftees and is unlikely for round 1

    hedski · 08/03/2017 at 13:07

    Turn Zorko into Danger

Joe · 08/03/2017 at 12:02


$113k remaining

DEF: Doch Laird Adams Hampton Hibberd Ryan (VW Stewart)
MID: Danger JPK Treloar Fyfe T.Mitchell Crouch Swallow SPP (Barrett Wigg Miles)
RUC: Gawn Sandi (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus Lynch Caddy Bowes Black Pickett (Long Eddy)

    Kev · 08/03/2017 at 12:17

    Looks solid, Joe. Maybe Cameron for Long (who will miss first 2 rounds anyway) for a little bit of insurance for Sandi. Especially if Cameron plays round 1

    rahog · 08/03/2017 at 14:11

    very nice looking team there mate. I cant really pick anywhere that I would change. good work!

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:27

    Yep. Now wait for rookies.

rahog · 08/03/2017 at 12:25

hey all, not long to go now, cant wait for the 2017 season.. 6 months is soo long to wait haha. Anyway, please help me with some friendly advice with my team, pick it apart, criticize it, anything that will help me be ready for Round 1. Also – I cant help myself with adding Jack Riewoldt in, biased and one eyed but hoping might be a random point of difference 😛

DEF: Docherty. Rance. Laird. RMurphy. Vickers-Willis. Newman. (Stewart. Guthrie)
MID: Dangerfield. Pendlebury. Bontempelli. Fyfe. T.Mitchell. D.Beams. D.Swallow. SPP. (Barrett. Jarman(for dpp). Fox)
RUCK: Nankervis. Sandilands. (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus. Macrae. JRiewoldt. Roughead. Hoskin-Elliot. Black. (DCameron. Eddy)

Thanks guys I appreciate it.

    rahog · 08/03/2017 at 15:02

    I am thinking of swapping Hoskin-Elliot for Taranto?

      Whitey · 08/03/2017 at 15:19

      good idea, also think Murphy might be slow to start the year after his knee.

        rahog · 08/03/2017 at 15:44

        Thanks Whitey… any other advice mate?

Derek · 08/03/2017 at 13:02

Great Podcast Jock.

Oh the pain…the pain. You made me go back and look at what has caused me the most pain over the last 3 years….i didn't sleep very well last night.

The Midpricers – TBC, Lobbe, BCrouch, Wingard, Cloke, Suckling, Newnes, Rich, BSmith, the Bitz, Motlop,Trengrove, Griffin. aaarrrgh.

The injured premiums – Rocky, Barlow, Delidio, Ablett, Sloane, Parker, Hodge, NicNat, Mcveigh

I really liked what Higgo said about the good choices is because of Skill, the poor choices were because of bad luck…. the above list represents alot of bad luck 😉

Looking at my team, i can already see some "Bad Luck" just waiting to happen.

Adams, Mills, Sandilands, Cyril, Swallow.

Although, i have seen plenty of teams with alot more "bad luck" than mine 😉

Thinking for changing Adams & Mills to Simmo and Shaw. Swallow to a rookie. Stick with Cyril & sandi.

what do you reckon fellas, thanks fellas..

    Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 14:30

    Hi Derek.

    1. Shaw and Simmo a safer bet, but hang onto Swallow if you can.
    2. Sandi worth the punt, provided you have a Gawn/Goldy as R1.
    3. Cyril a gem but injuries may limit his output. What about Caddy/Greene?

    If you have starting premo 3,5,1,3 then the above makes sense.

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:41

      Thanks Rivo. Would keep Mills ahead of Swallow if I could.

      I think Cyril will be ok. Club have done a lot with him over last 2 years and it has paid off. Only missed a couple of games last year because of his grandfather' death. Had a full preseason, first for 6 years and was nominated by club staff as the most improved during offseason. Elevated to leadership group this year. Prime of his life after career best in 2016. All Australian last year. Will get more midfield this year, has the big blokes back to crumb from and the changes to rushed behinds will have him licking his lips. I think I just talked myself into him 😉

        Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 14:46

        Agreed. I want to pick Cyril too just reading all that!

        BlakeyP · 08/03/2017 at 15:51

        After that spill I would be keeping him to. Big POD

    Liam · 08/03/2017 at 15:25

    I have had some bad luck with injuries as well Derek,but at the end of the day we have 30 trades.

    I think its worth having a few guys like JOM,Swallow, Beams, Gaj,Adams they will average well and they could quite easily play the whole year, who knows.

    I have Mills as well and think he is a fairly safe bet to average 95 off half back and mid.

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 15:32

      one thing that stood out from the winner last year was his early season premium correction trades.
      thanks liam.

    Sana · 08/03/2017 at 17:35

    We can't resist a potential steal mate, human nature. The only way to avoid it entirely is to pay top dollar. Even then bad luck could rear its ugly head.

    I know I'm asking for it yet again this year! arrrghh!

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 18:43

      most of the mid pricers were self inflicted pain.

      the injuries to premiums, some are just bad luck (Sloane's face), but alot of the other ones, Rocky, Delidio, Hodge, Rocky, Ablett, we saw it coming. Not making that mistake again……. as much as i have before.

H-Lee · 08/03/2017 at 13:08

hey all its H. thoughts between gunston and mccarthy or rough and nank

    Rivo · 08/03/2017 at 14:31

    Rough & Nank

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:36

    At the moment, Gunston and McCarthy. If Nank does well enough next week, maybe him and Rough

hedski · 08/03/2017 at 13:12

Was pondering Higgos thoughts on our def rookies looking like lining up in a lot of late games round one.
Can you imagine if Danger and Fyfe were both late withdrawals last game Sunday???? Carnage.

    Zee888 · 08/03/2017 at 13:15

    The only thing worth taking into account is that everyone would effected by this

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 13:25

      there are unlimited trades in the first week during the rolling lockout.

        INPieman · 08/03/2017 at 13:53

        What if Sandi is a late withdrawal. A playing R3 if available might be a good idea

          hedski · 08/03/2017 at 14:02


        hedski · 08/03/2017 at 14:02

        I know Derek but they are the last game of round one, was talking late late (roll the ankle in warm up), highly unlikely but purely hypothetical.

          Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:24

          SMitch did that to me a couple of years back. Late out Sunday but I had already used my E for the C loophole. Fat donut week 2. With Ellis youman on bench scoring 100. The pain…

Dusty's Neck Tatts · 08/03/2017 at 13:24

What are your thoughts on my team thus far fellas? Tried to do a couple of things a little differently.

Rance, Laird, Howe, Hampton, Ed VW, Stewart, (Newman, Guthrie)

Danger, JPK, Parker, Treloar, Shuey, Fyfe, Swallow, SPP (Barret, Wigg, Hibberd)

Gawn, Sandi, (Strndica)

Dahl, Caddy, Roughy, Nank, Bowes, Miles (Picket, Eddy)

Only 2000 left over, so I'm thinking of dropping Howe or Caddy down to grab some cash if my rookies don't get up for round one.

    rahog · 08/03/2017 at 13:42

    good team there mate. You could down grade Howe to J.Lloyd at Sydney? or Zac Williams from GWS? very strong midfield!!!

    Valens_FC · 08/03/2017 at 23:33

    Nice team Dusty. You've kept a solid structure yet included some nice PODs. Shuey with the round 12 bye and smitch for company is an interesting one. Could be a break out.

PortBoy · 08/03/2017 at 13:56

Just quietly, strong signs out of PORT that they will go into round ones with 4 debutants….Powell-Pepper, Eddy, Atley and Houston….u heard it here first folks

    Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 14:14

    How long will they stay in the team is my concern.

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:20

    Good info. First 2 we all know about. Will watch others

      rahog · 08/03/2017 at 14:35

      Atley was ok against Richmond, took the game on a few times through the middle.

        PortBoy · 08/03/2017 at 14:38

        and Houston is looking like Pittards replacement

    PortBoy · 08/03/2017 at 14:29

    I think they will all be given a red hot go….it won't be admitted, but Port are obviously in a rebuilding phase…..they traded for as many early draft picks as they could get their hands on…and they want to pump as many games into these kids while their is little prospect of on field success

BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2017 at 14:02

Surely its just about time for Jock and the lads to do a team reveal?

    rahog · 08/03/2017 at 14:35

    YESSSSS….. would love Jock to do a team reveal 😛

Wombatsfc · 08/03/2017 at 14:22

Is anybody re assessing their premo doggies after the Umpires coach has confirmed that they are following up on Clarko's complaints about doggies throwing the ball in stoppages instead of hand balling properly? Clarko reckons its not fair that the hawks laid 105 tackles but only got 3 HTB frees despite the majority of disposals by tackled dogs being illegal.

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 14:43

    So that's why the Hawks didn't win……… I knew it!

      Clokey · 08/03/2017 at 15:32

      Gotta love Clarko, it couldn't possibly be an issue with hawks tackling, the opponents must be cheating. Classic Aussie blame shifting he should get an Australia Day Honor

        Clock Management · 08/03/2017 at 16:17

        Is it the reason they won the premiorship? or hawks didn't win? no but Clarko has a point they do throw the ball a lot, it is smart however cause they never get caught, not a hawk fan by the way but it is an issue it happened a lot, paticulary remember the game mid-season against the Crows it happened paticulary a lot.

          wombatsfc · 08/03/2017 at 17:08

          It has been happening forever. Swanny was an expert at it Jelwood and smitch do it a lot as well. Clarko is only speaking up because smitch is now throwing for the eagles.
          Matty Boyd is a lifetime exponent and probably taught the pups

    Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 17:06

    Wow, Hawthorn complaining about free kicks is the height of hypocrisy.
    The dogs manically train for a handball based game. They're just better and quicker at it than other teams.

      INPieman · 08/03/2017 at 17:26

      That's a free kick to Hawthorn Northernsoul!

        Dee · 08/03/2017 at 17:37

        Clarko and his whole team can get stuffed….

          Dogs · 08/03/2017 at 22:08

          Funny how people have short memories (either that or they're too young to know the facts). Go back and look at the free kick count for the last 10 years, Hawthorn are equal last with Sydney for the worst free kick differential (-259) in the entire league. At the other end of the scale, West coast have a +710 differential. That's nearly 1,000 extra free kicks…I don't hear anyone b!tching about their advantage with the umpires. But yeah, let's look at the first positive differential Hawthorn have had in frees for nearly 10 years and hate on them because they are a great team and no one wants them to win!!!

            Browncow · 09/03/2017 at 00:04

            Hard to argue with that Dogs. After our entire midfield evaporated 10 years ago we had to start playing for frees to get a kick. Finally have a genuine midfield again and no Naitanui to tap it to them.

    @t_woof · 09/03/2017 at 15:14

    Clarko, what a champ.

Danners · 08/03/2017 at 14:36

An interesting podcast guys. Trying to tempt us into a lot of traps I see. With Nankervis, just remember he has played against Jacobs who almost every team dominated against last season, and Port who have one of the worst ruck divisions in the comp. Nevertheless he should be considered. I will look to get him in if he does well against Grundy.

Derek · 08/03/2017 at 15:14

Can anyone please explain to me why Maric played in JLT?

You know where i'm coming from? A couple of bad games from the Nank…… i'm just putting it out there!

    Clock Management · 08/03/2017 at 16:14

    Yeah Maric Won't play another game for the Tigers, they don't rate him at all, they were just stuck with him, remember they did attempt to trade him after the 2015 season to port for Lobbe and an exchanging of draft picks.

    Why he played? Only 35% game time to give Nank break, he only played cause hampson was unavailable to give backup support. Your reading way too much into that mate.

      Derek · 08/03/2017 at 16:24

      fair enough. didn't know that hampson was unavailable.

Dee · 08/03/2017 at 15:58

Rance or Laird and Mills or Touhy?

    Zee888 · 08/03/2017 at 16:16

    Rance touhy

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 16:23

    laird & mills are in my team

    hedski · 08/03/2017 at 17:06

    Laird and Tuohy

      Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 23:07

      +1 and it ain't even close

        Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:41

        Tis true.

    The BONT · 08/03/2017 at 17:55

    Rance Laird

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 21:38

    Bang Tuohy and Mills. Welcome.

Zee888 · 08/03/2017 at 16:00

I currently have Roughy in my team – great price and amazing to see him back. BUT anyone have insight into how taxing coming back will be on his body? Could we see him get rested intermittently throughout the season?

    Browncow · 09/03/2017 at 00:14

    He is very tempting at that price. They love him at Hawthorn and will take care of his welfare. If he gets so much as a sniffle they will rest him as they should.

    @t_woof · 09/03/2017 at 15:17

    I wouldn't stress too much Z.

    Training workload would be larger throughout the pre season, than the H&A season. Seems to be handling it well, and playing solidly in the JLT games to date #NoMozz

JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 16:02

Obviously we are ALL getting confused and desperate with only 2 weeks to go!
Still struggling to commit to a structure with so much Rookie uncertainty and my worries about the change in Ruck strategies this year (very few genuine one-out rucks this year).
Would LOVE some feedback from all the gurus in the community:

DEF: Laird, Howe, Mills, Hampton, Hibberd, Vickers-Willis (Stewart, Watson)
MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Hannebery, Bontompelli, Ward, Fyfe, Oliver, Taranto (Powell-Pepper, Barrett, Mountford)
RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Longer)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Black, Begley, Miles (Eddy, Lebois)

$17,800 bank. I'm pretty happy with the POD's I've selected and will still look to change final rookie selections but this seems to be the structure I'm happiest with.
All criticism appreciated… cheers.

    rahog · 08/03/2017 at 16:21

    very strong midfield, love it mate!!! And I agree… its tough this year with the rookies not really producing the goods during the JLT, not much to choose from. Your midfield is perfect, only thing is Howe.. i dont really rate him and with the same cash either Vince or even Zac Williams, but then again Howe is going to get lots of the ball down back too this year hahaha.

      JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 16:25

      Cheers Rahog. Funny, I've had both Williams and Vince in earlier versions but, as I hate the Pies so much, I'm backing it in the ball stays in the backline 90% of each game 🙂

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 18:51

    team looks really good until i get to F3.

    Roughie at F3…. is ok i guess. but F4, F5, F6 will keep you awake at night.

    i would not have Longer. I see you are looking for Sandi cover, but the cash could be used better with your onfield players first

      JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 20:00

      Fair call Derek.
      That's the battle…. having Sandi and getting cover. I think Longer will be Saints R1 by year end and looking for $ rather than spuds in my forwards.
      Might have to weaken mids to get better F3

    John James · 08/03/2017 at 22:32

    I'm so happy to see someone else with Oliver in their team although I have him at M6 ,I have been taking so much s..t because of it as well.

      JustAmug · 09/03/2017 at 06:00

      Been impressive so far and big wraps on his preseason. Great POD I reckon.

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:10

    Howe is a gun and always looked close to being great at melbourne. Now has a solid role and is going good at the pies. Can't see what's not to like about him, unless it's something personal?

      The Ranger · 08/03/2017 at 23:41

      I like Howe but he has to be regarded as a risky pick because he only has one season of decent SC output behind him.
      When I'm picking keepers I want more than that.

        Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:07

        Fair enough.

    The Ranger · 08/03/2017 at 23:48

    Good team Justa, getting a structure you like and sticking to it is a bloody good idea.
    Too much risk for mine but good luck mate.

      JustAmug · 09/03/2017 at 05:58

      Cheers Ranger, you too

    John James · 10/03/2017 at 00:45

    If the Dees keep up with playing Spencer as a second ruck I would consider changing Big Max to Grundy,Had Gawn from the start last year and I'm a big fan,but I traded him out as soon as I saw Spencer getting a gig as R2

Frankie · 08/03/2017 at 16:29

G'day community,
This is the first time i have released my squad i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on changes i should make to my squad, i am very open to criticism so if needed please tell me haha
K Simpson, H Shaw, T Adams, M Scharenberg, C Hampton, E Vickers-willis INT(L Ryan, T stewart)
P Dangerfield, S Pendlebury, D Hannebery, M Bontempelli, N Fyfe, D Swallow, S Powel-Pepper, T Miles INT(H Wigg, M Hibberd, R Fox)
M Gawn, B Grundy INT (L Strnadica)
L Dahlhaus, J Caddy, D Menzel, J Billings, A Black, K Lebois INT (J Henry, B Eddy)

    Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 18:14

    Luke Ryan isn't in the squad again so think we can all safely scrub him from our teams.

      Browncow · 09/03/2017 at 00:24

      Yep. He was at the Bieber concert the other night. Ross wouldn't have liked that.

    Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 18:49

    Also the Bont is struggling, wouldn't be surprised if he's slate out tomorrow. Would be pretty underdone even if fit for round 1.

Zee888 · 08/03/2017 at 16:30

Any interest in Heppell?

    JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 16:32

    I just can't see him being top 10 and makes an expensive stepping stone with no real evidence of high ceiling games

    Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:37


PortBoy · 08/03/2017 at 16:38

DEF: Simpson Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis Stewart (Ryan, Guthrie

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Merrett, Treloar, Fyfe, Lewis, O'Meara, Swallow (Powell-Pepper, Barrett, miles)

RUCK: Gawn Sandilands (Smaldica)

FWD Dahlhaus, Macrae Roughhead Nankervis Shoenmakers, Black ( Pickett, Eddy)

Lotsa Risks here….and Lewis is my POD selection. What do people think????

    Big G · 08/03/2017 at 16:45

    I always felt Lewis is more a fantasy option than sc

The BONT · 08/03/2017 at 18:00

Where abouts does everyone think I will finish overall and how can i change that

DEF: Docerty, Rance, Laird, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis (Stewart, Guthrie)

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Jelwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Brodie, Powell-Pepper (Wigg, Barrett, Hibberd)

RUCK: Gawn Sandilands (Cameroon)

FWD Dahlhaus, Macrae Roughhead, Black, Miles, Butler ( Pickett, Eddy)

I still got $191,000 left over but don't know where to spend it

    Seb · 08/03/2017 at 18:08

    I'd drop a mid and make swallow or JOM.
    or make one of your premo defenders to a mills or tuohy. And then make one of those fwd rookies into a premo.

      The BONT · 08/03/2017 at 18:23

      Who do you reccomend

        Seb · 08/03/2017 at 18:34

        i have swallow currently only because he is 30k cheaper than JOM but either or should be just as good

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 21:37

    I think you'll finish between 1 and 50k

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 21:37

    You can change that outcome by choosing different players haha

      Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:40


The BONT · 08/03/2017 at 18:27

Swallow or O'merea

    Derek · 08/03/2017 at 18:44

    swallow cause he is cheaper

      Dee · 08/03/2017 at 19:44

      Swallow, I have a bad feeling about O'meara, his knees are buggered I reckon…. and 46% of teams have him.

    JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 20:10

    Neither for me…no chance either top 10

      Seb · 08/03/2017 at 20:13

      That's not the point of them, they are suppoesed to be stepping stones so they can be gotten rid of for a premo for just one trade.

        Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:17

        Or a reasonable M8 if you run out of trades/value growth. For 280-318k a player that might average you 90+ is pretty valuable as M8. People talk about only having their whole midfield top ten players but that doesn't always work out ie last year so many injuries.

        My team made it to 14mill mark but can't say the same for everybody.

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 20:36

    The big question… Swallow since he didn't have two years out and like Derek said, he is cheaper

    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 21:34

    Im taking the punt on O'Meara. Swallow has a lot of mids to compete with at Gold Coast so i wouldnt be surprised if he spends a lot of time on a flank. JOM i think will be placed in the guts for most of the time. Both are injury concerns but with the limited rookies in the mids this year, i wouldnt be surprised if people start with both at m7 and m8

    Moustachio · 08/03/2017 at 23:11


      The Ranger · 08/03/2017 at 23:35

      Swallow. Slow burn stepping stone.

    @t_woof · 09/03/2017 at 15:22

    O'Meara, yes bias.

    Has completed 2 full seasons of 89 plus compared to Swallow's 1.

    Swallow has only completed one full season out of five. O'Meara 2/2 where he's played at least one game.

    Swallow looked a little sluggish to my eye in JLT II. Anyone else think the same?

    Wouldn't begrudge anyone selecting either. But that's my thoughts if made to make the choice.

Northernsoul74 · 08/03/2017 at 18:52

I've gone Omeara on the basis if he hits form he could possibly be a keeper. Very high ceiling. Big risk though.

    Leeds17 · 08/03/2017 at 19:43

    Not sure he's really proven much of a high ceiling couple scores over 120 & a couple seasons averaging in the 90's, big jump to 110.

    Danners · 08/03/2017 at 20:35

    Can tell you right now he will not score enough to be a keeper if he gets through the season

      Dee · 09/03/2017 at 09:31

      Round 2….. bang!! There goes his left knee…. out for the rest of the season! loll

        Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:07

        That's a bit harsh, I'd say round 5 🙂

Frankie · 08/03/2017 at 19:24

G'day community,
This is the first time i have released my squad i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on changes i should make to my squad, i am very open to criticism so if needed please tell me haha

    Hey Frankie thought I was seeing double (fair chance).
    I like your updated fwds, rookies are all up in the air.
    Big spend in def maybe put some of that into getting Miles off the ground in mids.
    Cheers mate.

    Mid. Price. Madness.
    I like it.

      JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 20:46

      Haha… seems the theme this year… cant wait till round 4 remorse

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 21:34

    Who you gonna captain?

    Top Hawk · 08/03/2017 at 21:34

    WOW. That is a side which is capable of anything……AND I MEAN ANYTHING. Its either a SC masterpiece or a SC trainwreck. Good luck Nicov!
    (You will need it)

    Matze · 09/03/2017 at 08:39

    So many Geelong players….

      Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:06

      Not really

Fisherdan · 08/03/2017 at 19:48

Team 1

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Vince, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart, (Otten, Guthrie)

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Rockliffe, Sloane, Fyfe, Titchell, Powell-Pepper (Miles, Hibberd, Atley)

RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Black, Houston, Cameron (Butler, Eddy)

Or team 2?

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Vince, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart, (Otten, Newman)

MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Fyfe, Titchell, O'Meara, Swallow, Powell-Pepper (Wigg, Barrett, Hibberd)

RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)

FWD: N.Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Black, Cameron (Butler, Houston)

Which do you think has more risk?

    Fisherdan · 08/03/2017 at 19:51

    The difference is Rocky, Sloane vs Riewoldt, O'Meara, Swallow?

    JustAmug · 08/03/2017 at 20:05

    Mid risk or forward risk… your call.
    Personally, not a fan of either line up… good luck though

Danners · 08/03/2017 at 20:34

Righto community. Got a few spots free for a league for people within the top 10k last season so expect tough competition, might have another league code later in the week for anyone.
Community Elite : 983402
Good luck…

    Top Hawk · 08/03/2017 at 21:28

    Hi Danners. Just entered your league. Ended up around 6000 last year. Cheers TH

THE NANK · 08/03/2017 at 20:55

Just picked up Rooey using pick 43 in a draft, can't believe me luck!

    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 21:36

    Wow. What were people doing letting him slip that low?

GAZZAS FAT WALLET · 08/03/2017 at 21:16

Why no upload today Jock,

Adams, Laird, Mills
Hampton, VW, Stewart
Long, Guthrie

Danger, Gablett, JPK
Treloar, Fyfe, Beams
O'Meara, SPP
Barrett, Miles, Hibberd

Gawn, Sandilands

Riewoldt, Dahlhous, Miller
Roughy, Taranto, Black
Pickett, Eddy

Thoughts would be great

    Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 13:08

    Don't mind it. I would probably prefer to have Mills at D4. I think Roo is overpriced. Overall though, i like it!

Luke444 · 08/03/2017 at 21:18

I've decided I'm going to dip my finger into Nanscrevis. The lure is too arousing

John · 08/03/2017 at 21:20

Which combo

Jack Steele in the middle, Taranto and schoenmakers
David swallow, jack Steele and miles(hawthorn)

    John · 08/03/2017 at 21:24

    Also if I do the jack Steele one I start with Brodie instead of SPP on the field

    Matze · 09/03/2017 at 08:41

    2nd option I reckon. Swallow better option than schoenmaker. I also prefer miles to Taranto but that's just personal.

jack · 08/03/2017 at 21:35

watson or vince?

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 21:41

    I wouldn't have Vince in the midfield. Watson is a risk.

Don't Blush Baby · 08/03/2017 at 21:46

With Heeney not an option and the Fwd line options very thin ,I'm going with JJK , cant see why he won't be in the top 8 Fwds by year end if not already, I but don't see him in many teams, I suppose its either him or Buddy or both ,Thoughts anyone ?

    Holty · 08/03/2017 at 22:34

    Ive considered him. He has been very durable as well. id expect the eagles to have a big year which will help jjk. Plus that rd12 bye is very appealing.
    Last year though was only his first year he has averaged over 95 and thats what you need at the very least for a keeper in the forward line. I wont select on the basis he is not a proven premo

    Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:06

    Why not Lynch?

      The Ranger · 08/03/2017 at 23:50

      Yeah if I end up with a KPF it'll be Lynch

    Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 10:02

    JJK could be your POD. He's only in 10.78% of teams. He's on my watch list for sure.

Clokey · 08/03/2017 at 21:57

Here it is folks 'The WhipperSnippers'. I obviously believe that the lions wouldn't make Beams capt if they don't expect 18 games I have budgeted to trade him at some stage. The rest are those that I expect to actually get a game round 1 of the real stuff. If any of em have broken down already I'd appreciate a headsup.

Laird, JJ, Mills, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW -Stewart, Newman

Danger, Pendle, Hanners, Fyfe, Steven, Beams, O'meara, Swallow – Taranto,Barrett,Wigg


StNick, Greene, Petracca, Roughy, Schoenmakers, McInnes – Houston,Eddy

    Curious · 08/03/2017 at 22:19

    Why do you have petracca

      Clokey · 08/03/2017 at 23:29

      Why shouldn't I have him?

        Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:38

        Mills/Marchbank/Beams/O'meara/Swallow/Tracca/Roughy seriously look at all those risks…………….

          Leeds17 · 09/03/2017 at 06:09

          Marchbank doesn't seem a risk to me, just need to plan for him to only make 150K and be ok with that, he should score fine and is best 22.

            Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 13:06

            He's played 7 games of AFL in his life… over 2 years.

        Burnmen · 08/03/2017 at 23:39

        Not to mention Nank and Sandi………….which I don't mind so much.

        Derek · 09/03/2017 at 13:34

        Petracca will do ok. Will score you a solid 85-88 average, increase in price $60k – $70k. Will do exactly what a good midpricer should.

          Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:14

          Not a keeper or predicted keeper though. Waste of space. Too many midfielders fighting for time in the center especially with lewis joining. Petracca is a poor chance for breakout imo but you never know.

    Leeds17 · 09/03/2017 at 06:06

    Like: Steven, Greene
    Dislike: your options if one or both your rucks isn't playing.

    BlakeyP · 09/03/2017 at 12:01

    For the amount of risk you have taken you still only have 9 def keepers and 12 if you include Stevens, Beams and Petracca which I dont believe will be in the top 8-10 in there lines. With the risks you have taken I would expect at list 12-13 Gold premiums then a Beams and Roughy on top of that.
    I dont like the Roo pick and warming to Green.

      BlakeyP · 09/03/2017 at 14:09

      ment to be I do like the Roo pick

Seb · 08/03/2017 at 23:52

Gunston or Lynch?

    Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 08:24


    Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:04

    Hard to say. I predict GCS to have a slightly better year than last so Lynch could be good.

Stav · 09/03/2017 at 00:30

G'day guys, new to the community and haven't played Supercoach in a few years. Bit worried about my mid pricers.

Simpson, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Vickers-Willis, Stewart

Dangerfield, J.Kennedy, Priddis, Fyfe, J.Kelly, D.Beams, D.Swallow, SPP

Gawn, Sandilands

Dahlhaus, T.Lynch, Roughead, Steele, Black, Butler

    nick · 09/03/2017 at 01:50

    Be careful of guys that do well in pre season though. i wouldn't have J kelly or steele in your team. Lynch as well. apart from that great effort.

      Stav · 10/03/2017 at 00:37

      Cheers Nick. Appreciate the input.

rahog · 09/03/2017 at 09:30

please help me with any advice with my team, pick it apart, criticize it, anything really that will help me be ready for Round 1.

Also – I cant help myself with adding Jack Riewoldt in, biased and one eyed but hoping might be a random point of difference 😛

DEF: Docherty. Rance. Laird. RMurphy. Vickers-Willis. Newman. (Stewart. Guthrie)

MID: Dangerfield. Pendlebury. Bontempelli. Fyfe. T.Mitchell. D.Beams. D.Swallow. SPP. (Barrett. Jarman(for dpp). Fox)

RUCK: Nankervis. Sandilands. (Strnadica)

FWD: Dahlhaus. Macrae. JRiewoldt. Roughead. Hoskin-Elliot. Black. (DCameron. Eddy)

Thanks guys I appreciate it.

    Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 10:32

    I actually really really like this team. Really tempted to take Bob as well in DEF. How much have you got in the bank? The only thing im not loving is rucks. Not having Gawn is a big risk.

      rahog · 09/03/2017 at 11:02

      hahaha thanks mate… i know i am worried about not having Gawn too… but am rolling the dice with Nanks, possibly upgrade to Gawn before the byes? I have $10k left haha big spender!

        Kev · 09/03/2017 at 12:09

        Huge call going in with #Nankilands but the risks elsewhere make it worse if all goes south. Reckon you've overspent down back and its had a knot on effect on the rest of your team.

        Take off the rose coloured glasses for JRoo, he's just not SC relevant.

          rahog · 09/03/2017 at 12:18

          Thanks heaps for your advice there Kev, appreciate it mate, so do you recommend swapping JRiewoldt for Caddy or TGreene? trading Bob Murphy for Marchbank/Hampton and get Gawn for Nanks?….

          Feel like giving me a quick squiz at your team? 😉

            Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 13:02

            I acutally dont mind that plan, although not loving the Caddy OR Greene selection. But this is coming from someone who currently has Roughy at F3. Bob to Hampton and Nanks to Gawn.

    Derek · 09/03/2017 at 13:01

    I get people who have the Nank in their forward line and Sandi in their ruck. People who like insurance. I can't justify Nank as a forward at his price, but with DPP I can almost see the attraction.

    But The Nank and Sandi on the ruck line, I can't see that as a good plan.

    Doesn't give any cover. As a cheap ruck there are at lest 2 I would pick ahead of him.

Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 09:50

Good morning Community

Had a little reshuffle with news of injuries and JLT performances.

Let me know what you think.

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Johannisen, Scharenberg, Vickers-Willis, T.Stewart (N.Newman, L.Ryan)
MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Selwood, Bontempelli, Fyfe, O'Meara, Swallow, Powell-Pepper (J.Barret, H.Wigg, T.Miles)
RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughhead, Nankervis, J.Bowes, A.Black (T.Smith, B.Eddy)

Pretty happy with the way my team is sitting ATM, just not 100% on J.Bowes. Still looking for a good POD. Maybe it's him. Who knows.

$163,000 remaining.

Think my byes will hurt me though.


    Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 11:35

    My bye structure.

    Rd. 9 – 3 Rook (1 MID, 2 FWD), 1 Mid (1 MID), 0 Premo = 4 Total
    Rd. 11 – 3 Rook (1 DEF, 1 MID, 1 FWD), 0 Mid, 5 Premo (1 DEF, 1 MID, 1 RUCK, 2 FWD) = 8 Total
    Rd. 12 – 3 Rook (2 DEF, 1 FWD), 1 Mid (1 FWD), 2 Premo (2 MID) = 6 Total
    Rd.13 – 5 Rook (2 DEF, 2 MID, 1 RUCK), 3 Mid (1 MID, 1 RUCK, 1 FWD), 4 Premo (2 DEF, 2 MID) = 12 Total

    Kev · 09/03/2017 at 12:03

    Nice looking team, Blaknight. Keep in mind that the round 9 bye is best 22 like normal, any early season upgrading should be focused on those rooks that will miss. Haven't seen Smith or Ryan at all this preseason, there are other forward rookies that are more likely to appear for round 1

    Bont is a risk with his ankle, especially when you have Jaegar and Swallow there as well. I'd cull him for now and bring him at a later date

      Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 12:30

      Appreciate the feedback.

      You've got me thinking now about Bont's… Thanks 😛

Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 09:58

I'm treating Johannisen as one of my POD's as hes only been selected in 13.21% of teams.. That % low enough to count as a POD?

    Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 12:02

    No. Because people will also get him during the season and that might jump to 20%.

Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 10:34

Will Matty Boyd be playing?

Phat Man · 09/03/2017 at 12:33

Gday community, just after some feedback on my team, changes have been made due to performances in the JLT, most of these bein rookies who as always are subject to change.

Def: Doc, Shaw, Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, E.VW (L.Ryan, T.Stewart)
Mid: Sloane, Gray, Bont, Fyfe, Steven, D.Swallow, SPP, Freeman (J.Barrett, H.Wigg, S.Bolton)
Ruck: Gawn, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Roo, Dahlhaus, Caddy, Roughy, Black, J.Pickett (B.Eddy, J.Diacos)

73K left in the kitty

Cheers for the feed back

    Derek · 09/03/2017 at 12:52

    4 big defenders just seems unbalanced.

THE NANK · 09/03/2017 at 12:58

time tor risk it for the biscuit version 113425.3

Def: Leigh, Rance, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Ed Vicker-Willis (Stewart, Guthrie)

Mid: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Selwood, Fyfe, Swallow, SPP, Barrett (Miles, Atley, Wiggs)

Ruck: Gawn, Sandi (Strndica)

Forward: Dalhaus, Macrae, Roughie, Nank, Shoemakers, Houston (Smith, Eddy)

Jock Reynolds Community Overall Rank Group.

I think we need to have a Jock Reynolds Community Group for those who are focused on overall Rank.

The head-to-heads are good fun, especially once the chance of a good rank has gone ;), but i think most will agree the true test of most Serious Supercoachers is their overall rank.

I've set up a Group called "JR Community Rank".

Code is 776203

hopefully all the Big Guns of the community will join and we can match ourselves against them and hopefully learn a thing or two.

    gator59 · 09/03/2017 at 14:26

    Hi Derek, I would love to be a part of this group,But where do you go to join.. Cheers

      Derek · 09/03/2017 at 14:30

      It's in "Groups" not "Leagues".

        gator59 · 09/03/2017 at 14:48

                    Even though I started with TBC in 2015, still managed to finish 76th. Last year it was the injuries…..

                    hedski · 09/03/2017 at 19:19

                    My mistake just last year Derek, never been that high, first in NSW if I'm correct? Still got ya last year ;-p

Holty · 09/03/2017 at 14:06

Well im hoping some more mid rookies put their hand up this weekend as right now i have O'Meara at M8. I can only see 2 rookie mids who i feel are guaranteed of a round 1 spot. The rest im uncertain of.
Community, which bargain basement (under 150k) mid rookies do you think are certainties to start round 1?
I have SPP and Barrett(who still is questionable).

    Derek · 09/03/2017 at 14:12

    someone mentioned Atley from Port

      Holty · 09/03/2017 at 14:27

      Cheers Derek. Living in Adelaide i have heard the same. I think his job security is questionable though. But the same can be said for most rookies i guess

      neil demons delight · 09/03/2017 at 15:13

      has an older brother at roos. but the boys bigger comes from Bendigo a bit like Libba feeds the ball out consider this kid highly

Is 6 premiums and Dayne beams too much in the mids?
Current midfield: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Rocky, Bont, Fyfe, Beams and SPP
Also, Caddy or Macrae?

    Derek · 09/03/2017 at 14:22

    start of the preseason i would have said yes. The mid rookies is where we make the most cash. This year, everything has been thrown in the air. I'm actually starting to think how we will possibly get to full premium this year with the limited cash cows. Maybe we look at starting less premiums, and picking them up cheaper.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 09/03/2017 at 14:25

Pod cast too funny.
Nans crevice another rippa from crouching cold and all
And higgo that's twice now crouching has dropped a little nugget and a big grin even a chuckle has sprung from within.

SC been having a bit of a play with my team put in a few scenarios based on rooks JLT form but always write down this new team then don't save going back to original team as not gonna waste all the work that has gone in over the pre season, staying true.

However I think the form of JOM and swallow might be too hard to ignore.

Just had a light bulb moment where I think I can fit them in both in at M7-M8 without a big impact on my structure.
Found a player who will serve purpose and allow me to slot these two in with fyfe still at M6.

So happy days will sleep sound tonight.

Btw beams and brodie are the same price as JOM and swallow.

Increased risk profile slightly as would had fyfe, swallow JOM and sandi

Pretty safe elsewhere so may roll with it.
See what happens this weekend.
Not nanking.

    neil demons delight · 09/03/2017 at 14:54

    Looking at similar TRIG but its the injurys that kill it would make sense to have JOM and swallow at M 7/8 but would need to cull a premo to do it Aint gonna happen with Demons Delight cheers Trig

    hedski · 09/03/2017 at 16:40

    Beams at M7 for me atm Trig, neither of JOM/Swallow but could all get thrown out the window in two weeks when squads come out.

AuroraBorealis?! · 09/03/2017 at 14:43

Laird or Rance? Rance fits into my bye structure better, but i prefer Laird as a player. Whats more important? Player preference or bye structure?

    Zee888 · 09/03/2017 at 14:56

    As someone who completely stuffed up my byes last year.. ruining my season, I would say go Rance. I prefer Rance as a player anyway and don't think there is much between him and Laird.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 09/03/2017 at 15:06

      Cheers Zee, i've decided to put structure first 🙂

    neil demons delight · 09/03/2017 at 15:06

    Had exactly the same problem Aurora with the same players.Was going to replace Laird with Rance but got howled down on the forum.My solution was to cull Mills and knight .and go with both.Never looked better with Laird/Rance/Kelly but still like Mills but will never be a keeper.To answer your question I wouldn't hesitate TEAM STRUCTURE at the start and at the byes more important than player preference otherwise I would have 2 blues defenders and 2 woods champs in my squad but I haven't not yet anyway Cheers and good luck NEIL

      AuroraBorealis?! · 09/03/2017 at 16:11

      Thanks for the reply mate!

      Derek · 09/03/2017 at 17:50

      as you know neil, i've been a big fan of Mills. I don't have either Simmo or Docherty (i prefer Simmo) and i am worried that will hurt me like it did last year. So i thought about having Simmo instead of Adams (worry about injury) but the bye structure kills having Mills and Simmo.

      my decision is then Simmo or Mills.

      you can do alot with $159k.

      Is Simmo 30 points per week better than Mills? will i need to waste a trade on Mills?

      Mills is my only Midpricer who isn't a Fallen premium. i have had a very poor run with these type of guys over the years and i remember the pain.

        NEIL Demons Delight · 09/03/2017 at 19:09

        If your culling Adams are you worried about your swing set You've always had good swingsets RICH/ SMITH and this year they are lining up Adams Vince Kelly Lloyd are all good.Simmo is only 15k short of doc but all Australian Rance is 55000less than doc and 40000 less than Simmo. Swingsets with poor rookies is so important CHEERS

Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 14:44

Bont, JPK or Hanners?

    JustAmug · 09/03/2017 at 16:02

    1. Hanners
    2. Bont
    3. JPK

    Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:10


    (I hear Bont is underdone this preseason)

      Blaknight · 09/03/2017 at 16:14

      Ive currently got Bont in my side but the hearing that he is in fact a little under done concerns me.

BrownlowBoy · 09/03/2017 at 15:43

Scully says Taranto is ready to debut round 1!

    Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:09

    You locking him in?

      BrownlowBoy · 09/03/2017 at 16:16

      Nope, probably won't make my team. But he is an option. Nailing rookies this year is very important due to the lack of them. I don't think he will have very good JS – but I could be wrong with Deledio being injured.

        Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:21

        Nah not going near 200K rookies myself. Honestly I'd rather lock in Mzungu for 245k.

        Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 16:27

        Annoyed McCluggage out too he was going to burn everyone which I needed to get ahead MWAHAHA. (Get better soon Hugh nothing personal)

          Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:47

          Marchbank is a good option for $236K, will play 22 games and could very well warm you $200K+ this year.

Keenbutclueless · 09/03/2017 at 15:59

Really looking forward to this final round of JLT. I really want to get a better feel of what rookies we can trust. I have two versions of my team. One is 13-2-7 and the other is 11-6-5. My confidence level in the rookies will determine which one I run with. I really hope is 13-2-7.

    gator59 · 09/03/2017 at 16:11

    Have the same structure Keen 13-2-7

    neil Demons Delight · 09/03/2017 at 18:11

    same here 13/2 roughy and sandy only midpricers. confident forward rookies will appear cheers

Derek · 09/03/2017 at 16:16

Jock Reynolds Community Overall Rank Group.

I think we need to have a Jock Reynolds Community Group for those who are focused on overall Rank.

The head-to-heads are good fun, especially once the chance of a good rank has gone ;), but i think most will agree the true test of most Serious Supercoachers is their overall rank.

I've set up a Group called "JR Community Rank".

follow link

hopefully all the Big Guns of the community will join and we can match ourselves against them and hopefully learn a thing or two.

    Holty · 09/03/2017 at 16:25

    Great work Derek

    neil Demons Delight · 09/03/2017 at 18:07

    Great stuff look forward to competing against all these champs .Another good reason to work on my team even more

    Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:31

    great idea…. so what's the process, do we have to register?

      hedski · 09/03/2017 at 18:34

      Hit the link bud.

    Shake n bake · 09/03/2017 at 18:34

    Think im in there Derek. Like you said head to head are great especially when you get one over who ever you might be playing. But who know me I always play for Rank. last year finished 109th. Finished around 500 in 2015. The 1st thing l look at after the round has played is the ranking ladder in my leagues.

      Swans2012 · 09/03/2017 at 20:50

      Agreed it's all about the rank

    Sana · 10/03/2017 at 16:53

    Awesome! Count me in!

    Sana · 10/03/2017 at 16:55

    Anyone looking for an extra league jump on 912390, should be competitive

Shake n bake · 09/03/2017 at 18:14

Wow not havin the internet for the last couple of days is tough!! Changed all my providers finally today.
Loved the podcast and all comments.

Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:27

DIVINE FC is challenging you for a a bit of Supercoach competition and bragging rights…. anyone feel free to join my league! 577413 is the league code, thanks!

Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 18:34

Is it just me or did GCS do extremely well in the trade period snagging Barlow, Hanley Pearce, Wittsand Jarryd Lyons. Might be much more competitive this year with the extra midfield strength and ruck depth.

I originally wanted Witts in my team, but gave up that idea. He's really throwing a spanner in the works carving up this game. Then again doggies only have Boyd and Cloke as their big men………..damn JLT.

    BrownlowBoy · 09/03/2017 at 19:26

    Suns will push the 8 – they have the talent just been cursed by injury

Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 18:37

Also with their midfield depth I don't think any rookies will get a game early on.

Corey · 09/03/2017 at 18:41

Can people please join league 322557!

Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:44

Ablett looking good so far…. Anyone going to pick him this year? Would love to know the % of Supercoachers that will go in Round 1 with the SC God….

    Holty · 09/03/2017 at 19:14

    He could be a upgrade option rd 10 after his rd9 bye

      Swans2012 · 09/03/2017 at 20:45

      Agree but the ablett as a pod temptation is significant

Touk tuk · 09/03/2017 at 18:48

Hampson on LTI list.

Dee · 09/03/2017 at 18:51

Tom Lynch looking like he is in for a massive 2017…. JJK Out! Lynch In!

    Burnmen · 09/03/2017 at 21:41

    Thought that from early this year, in a struggling GCS last year he still did very well.

Thomas · 09/03/2017 at 18:58

Liking the look of Gaz!!
Touch wood!

BrownlowBoy · 09/03/2017 at 19:01

Hampson on long term injury list. Maric is a spud – NANK a viable option now? If he holds his own verse Grundy he will be in a lot more teams.

The BONT · 09/03/2017 at 19:05

Why isn't Will Brodie playing needed him to play so i could lock him in my side

Who is a good replacement?

wighty · 09/03/2017 at 19:48

I dont need any feed back on my team…its so good…16 keepers imo…….anyone got more ?

    Beady Eye · 09/03/2017 at 19:51

    I've got 18 myself so I'm another that doesn't need any feedback. So good.

      BrownlowBoy · 09/03/2017 at 20:01

      How can you possibly have 18?

    Derek · 09/03/2017 at 21:49

    Zac Dawson is not a keeper! You can't count him

      Beady Eye · 09/03/2017 at 23:15

      Dammit, foiled.

Harley · 09/03/2017 at 19:52

KK starting to look good again. Could be tempting me!

    Swans2012 · 09/03/2017 at 20:42

    Agree but I don't have any space for defensive midpricers this year, my only line that is pure g n r.

Jordan · 09/03/2017 at 20:29

Caddy or franklin

Derek · 09/03/2017 at 22:19

What is the cap for interchange this year? Is it still 90?

Top Hawk · 09/03/2017 at 22:54

Clayton Oliver.

This guy is on my radar.

At 20, and at 382K, he excites me big time.

Any thoughts?

    Tibor · 11/03/2017 at 08:54

    He looked like a gun a number of times last year and they just kept putting him away and resting him. Played him in various roles too, it was frustrating at the time but the Dees have been all about development with him and they rate him highly. Has shown enough in JLT and others such as Lewis and Vince have been in roles outside the midfield. Could be ready to go….at this price he is a mid price risk but clearly a safer bet than most

JEL · 10/03/2017 at 01:53

Currently running with 6 midpricers including Murph.
Considering upgrading to Tmitch, or keep Murph and use the 140k elsewhere.

Jim · 10/03/2017 at 11:53

Jack Steele or Nathan Hrovat? who would have better output

    Big G · 11/03/2017 at 12:31

    steele more likely to be in the guts.

Anyone looking for a league? Get on THE BOOG


Big G · 15/03/2017 at 13:00

Thinking of going callan ward or sam Mitchell over gray as m6 (danger, fyfe, jpk, trealoar, selwood). Ward has always served me well. Thoughts?

FotherMucker · 17/03/2017 at 00:32

You need to breathe Mr Jock. Classic!
A bit rough on the comment on McClugage old mate. You need to breathe – your arousal level is peaking just above richter!
The risk to reward conundrum …………
I am going very heavy on the returning wounded – the value is bursting my trouser leg in the absence of legitimate Rookie choices. This is my 'stratagem'.
There will be a new batch of wounded through this season that you and Crouching and Mr Higgenator will warn us about NEXT year.
These players are thoroughbreds at pretty high prices for their club's cap. If they are considered fit to play at htis stage of the season by their club's medical advisors – you know – they are fit to play!
