    How did you steal my team??

    ian · 22/03/2017 at 10:49

    This is the problem…so many teams will be almost the same…..I have 26 of your 30 CD96 !! The key to this year will be rookie upgrades

Derek · 21/03/2017 at 17:15

Like this if you want crouching one to be revealed

    Pendleberry · 21/03/2017 at 17:25

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 21/03/2017 at 17:18

Thoughts on my team would be much appreciated!
Strong emphasis on keepers with the exception of the rucks.

S. Docherty, R. Laird, J. Howe, (T. Stewart)
T.Adams, C. Hampton, E. V-Willis (Z. Guthrie)

P. Dangerfield, D. Hannebery, L. Neale (H. Wigg)
A. Treloar, N. Fyfe, D. Beams (J. Pickett)
S. P-Pepper, J. Barret (B. Parfitt)

A. Sandilands, J. Witts (D. Cameron)

N. Riewoldt, L. Dalhaus, J. Macrae (L. Strnadica)
T. Greene, D. Butler, D. Houston (B. Eddy)

    Big Daz · 21/03/2017 at 22:16

    Get rid of J. Macrae , Parfitt to fwd line and add another mid premium.

    Randomcliche2 · 22/03/2017 at 15:32

    I'd disregard the advice above, any more than 2 rookies o/f fwd is suicide. I prefer Jelwood and Rocky to Neale but hey, strong defense bud…especially with what could be carnage at the table this week…. looks right at those running 2-0-6 defense. I am running D3 M7, which would require another breakout contender like Crouch unless you go Doc to Titch. Bring on the team sheets.

Baz · 21/03/2017 at 17:20

    i don't think you need 5 ruckmen

      Burnmen · 21/03/2017 at 19:36

      Why not?

      Jeff · 21/03/2017 at 19:55

      2 are on the bench mate, not a worry if they generate cash or are used for loophole.

        Scotland · 21/03/2017 at 20:48

        Especially if Cameron is playing, getting points and generating cash.

    Randomcliche2 · 22/03/2017 at 15:36

    Taranto down, Roughy to Ryder and call your team 'Rucked up' 😛

Toby one kanobi · 21/03/2017 at 17:23

Tobias or not Tobias

Thoughts on Toby Greene community?

    Mgross · 21/03/2017 at 20:17

    Toby Greene won't be good

      Davokunt · 22/03/2017 at 16:39

      Easily yes.

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:07

    i have him
    and i think he will be a top 6 fwd

    David · 22/03/2017 at 07:53

    I reckon he could be a good pick. Had him last year and popped out some massive scores between poop. If he improves at all, finds some consistency he will be a great pick?

    JerseyforHawks · 22/03/2017 at 11:19

    Hellz yes.

Toby one kanobi · 21/03/2017 at 17:23

Also Tuohy or nah?

    Lazza · 21/03/2017 at 18:15

    The guy Tuohy is replacing was an absolute gun …. who struggled to average 100 in better teams…. so how can anyone expect Tuohy to outperform Enright.???

      Leeds17 · 22/03/2017 at 06:14

      If you are picking him thinking he'll go 100+ then yeah huge trap! personally at his price & the role I think he'll play I'll be happy and expecting around 92-95.

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:08

    nah, i didnt go there… too many people locking him in and i have a feel that it may be a trap

TPA · 21/03/2017 at 17:33

What's everyones go with the Ruck combo lads?

    Mitch · 21/03/2017 at 19:51

    R1 – Gun R2 – Mid Pricer
    That's looking like the best way to go

    Mgross · 21/03/2017 at 20:18

    Hickey and Sandy

    Swans2012 · 21/03/2017 at 22:40

    I think I'm sticking with gawndilands, Easy to downgrade Gawn if not tearing it, impossible to find cash early on to get him in if you don't have him to start. Happy to risk a trade to see the true effect of spencer, at least I am now, plenty of time to change my mind (again) in the next 2 days.

    @t_woof · 22/03/2017 at 15:39

    Right now Stef Martin and Sandilands.

      vaughan · 22/03/2017 at 17:22

Thoughts? Thinking of going Pendlebury to Treloar and Pickett to WHE. So far i got 53,000 in the bank.

    All The Wiser · 21/03/2017 at 17:51

    Selwood out, strengthen forw or ruck

    Jeff · 21/03/2017 at 19:56

    Omeara to swallow

    All The Wiser · 21/03/2017 at 17:51

    Howe out, mid to strong to early and 2 key forwards pick one

    Lach · 21/03/2017 at 18:22

    thoughts on jakey lloyd, not sure.

    Jimmy · 21/03/2017 at 23:26

    Missing a Ruckman

      seb · 22/03/2017 at 12:40

      Are u being serious?

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 12:32

    Howe is a good pick I think. Remember last year his first 3 games were as as forward, take them out and he averaged over 100. Could be a unique POD

miarwi9206 · 21/03/2017 at 17:37

heppell?

    All The Wiser · 21/03/2017 at 17:52

    Great pick, priced to average 90-95 and should be 105+

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:08

    nah
    better options..
    go full premo or mid priced

mmmmm · 21/03/2017 at 17:44

steele or roughy? or both? at a loss

    Casey · 21/03/2017 at 21:15

    roughy

    Swans2012 · 21/03/2017 at 22:40

    Both

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:08

    neither. look for other options

Lachie · 21/03/2017 at 17:44

So Beams or J'omera

and Hanners, Sloane or JPK.

    Jeff · 21/03/2017 at 19:57

    Beams, JPK

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:08

    why not have all

SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 18:02

Ok community I have created a themed leagued for 2017. I believe it's a little bit of a changing of the guard with some "freshish" faces about to take our beloved Supercoach game by the scruff of the neck and dominate this season.

To enter this league all you need do is start your side with at least one of the young gun mids of the comp which I'm choosing to define as a MID eligible player who is priced $550K or more and turns 24 or younger this season. So that works out to be just 7 players being Neale, Treloar, Zerrett, Cripps, Bont, Titch and Coniglio (who is injured unfortunately).

So long as you are starting at least one of those guys, which heaps of teams seem to have anyway, then anyone can join in. The league code is 554967 so let's see just how high our young guns can soar in 2017!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/03/2017 at 18:48

    Gr8 idea addict
    No doubt already full

    I created one called titch to scratch on Sunday and it filled in no time.

    Be interesting to see how the young guns and titchians go

      SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 18:52

      Yeah saw that Trig. Unfortunately I couldn't quite squeeze Titch into my SC side in the end although he was in there for a while. Reckon he's in for a massive season so have him mega locked in my Real Dream Team side instead.

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 19:11

    EDIT: League now full. Thanks to all those coaches who entered.

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:09

    good idea but already full

    Randomcliche2 · 22/03/2017 at 17:20

    Okay Addict, I've got a league for ya'll, it's called mid priced madness. The criteria is for who think they can spot a bargain. If you have 13 or less players who worth less than $250k, come join. League code 517117. All mid price maniacs welcome.

      SCaddict · 22/03/2017 at 18:39

      Ha ha you seem to know me too well. I actually saw your league invite on the Rate My Team thread first and signed up before even seeing your reply here. Hopefully we get a few other midpriced madhatters to join up. 🙂

        Randomcliche2 · 22/03/2017 at 18:54

        Feel free to forward on to other madhatters here in the community 🙂
        Flick me an email at 005342 at gmail.com with your team and I'll hit you back with mine. There are a few teams out there with 16 potential keepers plus O'meara or 15 plus Swallow and O'meara. I'm running 17 potential keepers (no O'meara or Swallow) I'm interested to see what you are running this year!

    Reminiscent · 23/03/2017 at 00:36

    748491. All welcome

Danners · 21/03/2017 at 18:07

Some interesting teams lads. Something to think about with Crouch's gametime, might sound stupid but maybe he can't last a game of running. Surely he'd be getting more gametime by now if he could. Also with Goldy, with a less experienced midfield, he'll lose points for not hitting to advantage.

    Phil · 21/03/2017 at 18:56

    And how many clearances exactly did Harvey, Dal Santo, Wells, Furrito & Petrie win last year? None of them strike as great in this area, I'll back the 5 coming in to do better. Goldstein points will go up I think

    BarronVonCrow · 22/03/2017 at 03:09

    I think the bigger issue with Crouch's gametime was the presence of Scott Thompson in the side. Both are slow, inside players, so they tried to limit the amount they played in the middle together. Lyons could at least rotate forward if needed, but Crouch doesn't have that arrow in his bow. And since Campo would boof Thommo if he let him, it was Crouch who sat.

    One of Pyke's bigger desires it seems is to have a more dynamic and speedy midfield than what we've had previously (hence Lyons getting the boot, because he was the same, slow inside midfielder), so while everyone pops Thommo's name as a Best 22 when he's healthy, I've heard that's not going to be the case this year and he's been told he's an emergency player only (whether that lasts all year or not remains to be seen though).

    So with Thommo out of the side, that allows the Crowies to add a more multi dimensional midfield. Matt is the bull inside, Brad and Rory are the blokes who can do it both on the inside and outside, then you've got Atkins/Milera/Cameron/Smith/Mackay on the wings and guys like Hampton, Douglas and Laird who can rotate into in the middle when Matt, Brad or Rory go off for a break.

hedski · 21/03/2017 at 18:13

Settling into said comfy chair, last piece of calm before the storm, thanks for the preseason Lads, good luck all.

    Captain Risky · 21/03/2017 at 19:48

    well, I have a shitload of work to catch up on.. looking forward to getting back to normal, and of course watching the carnage unfold! A few coldies this weekend for sure 🙂
    Bring it on!

      mitch · 21/03/2017 at 19:53

      Well put hedski

Laffffff · 21/03/2017 at 18:21

why not both j,omeara and d.swallow?

    Lachie · 21/03/2017 at 18:22

    injury risks.. but im going with both most likely.

Ruc: Gawn, Sandi (Cameron)

Rookies will change after the announcement of teams

Thanks community

    The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:34

    Just watch for Gawn's scores with Spencer as second ruck, could downgrade him to Goldy or Grundy and upgrade Miles to Taranto. Watch for Steele too as he could be a JLT trap. Otherwise, I'd set and forget that team

Andy · 21/03/2017 at 18:36

After clearing my team about 100 times, I think I have found the structure I will be going in with in Round 1.
Thoughts will be great!

Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton (Otten, Stewart)

Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Miles)

Rucks: Nankervis, Sandilands (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Steele, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Butler, Parfitt)

    Gags · 21/03/2017 at 18:42

    Really like this side but could be too mid-priced heavy

      Andy · 21/03/2017 at 18:48

      Thanks Gags!
      I think most of our teams will be mid-priced heavy with a lack of rookies.. That being said, this team will probably be changed again Wednesday or Thursday night! hahahaha

    Lazza · 21/03/2017 at 20:55

    The guy Tuohy is replacing at Geelong was an absolute gun …. who struggled to average 100 in better teams…. so how can anyone expect Tuohy to outperform Enright.??? Enright averaged mid 90s. If you have the mula, go Howe else Lloyd.

Marvin · 21/03/2017 at 18:39

Why the lack of love for zerrett? I don't see him in many teams. Is it due to the returning players like jobe?

    Lach · 21/03/2017 at 18:43

    Heppell, Jobey and maybe even zaha posing point stealing this year round. I'd expect him to still average around 100 tho..

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 19:34

    Yes you've answered your own question. Will still score very well regardless but can he go 110 again remains to be seen.

    Certainly wouldn't be the worst starting selection you could make this season but many coaches suspect he's priced at overs and/or is unlikely to finish a top 10 mid.

    You want to be damn sure whenever you spend over $600K on a prick hence the hesitation with picking guys like Zerrett, Gazza and Gawn for a lot of coaches, that have some level of uncertainty surrounding them. But if you believe in Zerrett as a selection go for it.

    Marvin · 21/03/2017 at 23:50

    Thanks fellas. He could easily become Treloar before kickoff, plenty of shuffling to go no doubt. I have titch and jack Steven too, so one of the three might need to be upgraded.

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:10

    you answered your own question
    plus essendon SHIT

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 12:59

    I have him. Even with the players back hes showed he won't be getting less of the ball in the JLT series. Serious jet. Probably a good POD.

Lach · 21/03/2017 at 18:40

sloane or titch

    NickMacMan · 21/03/2017 at 18:49

    titch

    Sloane

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:11

    titch
    sloan will drop in price (always does) then get him cheap cheap

Sully321 · 21/03/2017 at 18:40

any thoughts on my team would be greatly appreciated

Roughead, Taranto, butler (Eddy)

few uncertainties in this side, not sure whether to go with roughead or steele, also i'm struggling to choose between Docherty, Simpson and shaw at d1. ATM it's shaw due to his high ceiling but i feel Docherty and Simpson will be more consistent throughout the season.
Thanks in advance

    Lach · 21/03/2017 at 18:44

    Defence strcuture is risky and I'm 70% sure it will change after team lineup reveals tmrw. Good chance some rookies wont be named rd1.

      Sully321 · 21/03/2017 at 18:52

      yeah that was the other thing my structure is very much still not set

    could be a possibility.. idk its up to preference.

    Georgy Jones · 21/03/2017 at 19:34

    Good looking team, couple of cheeky but possibly huge POD in that team. How much cash you got left over?

      Super_bj · 21/03/2017 at 19:42

      Cheers Georgy. I have $121.7k in the bank. Looking to gain some quick cash upgrading quickly.

        Georgy Jones · 21/03/2017 at 19:44

        Still a bit in the bank. If you can start with some good rookies you will be in great shape

    Go Large · 21/03/2017 at 19:47

    That is a huge forward line. Probably the best one I have seen to date

    Burnmen · 21/03/2017 at 23:53

    Barrett needs to be elevated.

    EVW is doubtful but if you have Stewart and maybe Otten/Smith to back up on bench.

    Could drop one gun forward to tarantula/Willbehopingalot and then you can get another decent mid ie JOM?

    Darcy Cameron on ruck bench and I reckon you're laughing in that aspect.

    Tim · 22/03/2017 at 09:35

    Nice team. Very similar to mine except for that extra premo forward. Would love to know how you managed to start with salary cap of $10.2 mil.

AMAC · 21/03/2017 at 19:04

Another beautiful podcast gents. A tear rolled down my cheek as Chariots of fire heightened the final displays of emotion. Thanks for your efforts this pre-season! What an epic build up to Supercoach 2017. Best of luck to you all community!

Goose · 21/03/2017 at 19:09

G'day lads, keen to hear some thoughts on my team, pretty happy with it but with $216k in the bank I've got a couple of potential changes in mind, here's the team as it stands:

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis (Stewart, Guthrie)
MID: Dangerfield, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe. T.Mitchell, Beams, O'Meara, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Parfitt, Lloyd)
RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Gunston, Higgins, Roughead, Nankervis, Pickett (Eddy, Houston)

My two thoughts are:
Dayne Beams into Zach Merrett
or
Marchbank & Treloar into Jake Lloyd & Priddis

What do we reckon? Make one of those changes or just leave it as is and keep some cash in the bank in case one of my mid-pricers like Sandi or O'Meara go down early?

Cheers

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:04

    I rekon if you can upgrade marchbank to Lloyd that would be perfect. Priddis could very well be a unique POD is a consistent gun

Young Gun · 21/03/2017 at 19:11

Higgins or Greene? Am I setting myself up for a fall?. Your thoughts. Heaps of antiquities to ponder, do I stay with 3 premo backs, running JOM & Swallow with SPP on bench

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:12

    Greene

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:05

    I've gone with higgins only because everyone has green(plus I'm not really keen going on a Rollercoaster ride with him), but if higgins can go back to his 2015 form he will be a gem.

Matt · 21/03/2017 at 19:12

Anyone think josh gibson in the backline is a good idea?

    Laffffff · 21/03/2017 at 19:39

    i've had him in previous years bit too inconsistent for my liking i'd probably even go mills before him

    hedski · 21/03/2017 at 19:59

    Only if your a masochist Matt.

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 20:08

    He will probably frustrate the hell out of you as his scores are role dependant that can change from week to week. Great when he goes large but when those turds invariably appear the stench is intolerable.

    Had 6 games scoring below 60 last season which is not what you really want from a premo defender and didn't ton up in his last 8 games including 2 finals – ouch!

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:12

    nope

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:06

    Previous years yes but last year he tailed off. Better options out there

James · 21/03/2017 at 19:13

Which team would you choose?
Team 1:
Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Tuohy, Marchbank, Hampton (Otten, Stewart)

Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Miles)

Rucks: Nankervis, Sandilands (Cameron)

Fwd: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Steele, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Butler, Parfitt)

Team 2:
Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten (Vickers-Wills, Stewart)

Mid: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, O'Meara, Taranto, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)

Rucks: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)

Fwd: N Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughead, Hoskin-Elliott, Eddy (Miles, Butler)

Thoughts will be appreciated.

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:07

    Team 2

Kenny · 21/03/2017 at 19:19

Boy oh boy wow-wee .. year of the cookie cutter!! Seems to be very little variation in sides being put up in the posts. Is this a season where we don't worry so much about making money early from the rooks but take a chance on mid pricers who can be traded down to pick up the cows as they are made available? Hopefully the addition point scoring will offset having to wait longer getting to premo extra early. And also trouble areas like the rucks should be established as to who is a keeper.

    @wheels_1987 · 22/03/2017 at 04:13

    every year is cookie cutter !

Jocks team very solid and chuffed to see it's similar to mine. $7k cash. Thoughts please Community?

D: Doc, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, EVW (Otten, Stewart);
M: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, M.Crouch, JOM, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Hibberd, Parfitt);

F: Dahl, Buddy, Rough, Nank, Toronto, Pickett (Cameron, Eddy).

    Rivo · 21/03/2017 at 21:39

    What's the better option based on the team above?

    JOM & Swallow or
    Beams & Florent?

    Bells E Bubb · 21/03/2017 at 22:13

    Cameron injured and out a week. If Sinclair plays well a long line of donuts awaits.

      That sucks, but infected finger I'm keeping him with a lack of rookies.

Shake n bake · 21/03/2017 at 19:43

Ok not sure who teams will go with there vc in rd 1 and nearly every team has Fyfe & Danger if your vc flops who will be your capt Fyfe or Danger???

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 20:00

    It's a real coin flip SnB. Both guys finished the JLT in beast mode so form coming into Rd1 is impeccable. First time they have gone head to head since Danger switched colours.

    Hopefully our VCs come off for 130 plus and we don't have to deal with that headache, as I've got no real answer right now. Perhaps a slight leaning to Danger but it could really go either way.

    Holty · 21/03/2017 at 20:03

    Danger for me. He averages more against freo then any other team. He has played them 11 times for a average of almost 130

Paulrigs · 21/03/2017 at 19:46

The Magpie Dentist · 21/03/2017 at 20:14

DEF: Simmo, Laird, K.Kolodjashnij, Z.Jones, Hampton, Otten (EVW, Stewart)
MID: Danger, Hannebery, Treloar, Bont, Fyfe, Titch, Horlin-Smith, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Wigg)
RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Lynch, Roughy, Nankervis, Taranto, Eddy (Butler, Houston)

Bank: $34,000

I can see Kolodjashnij having a very good Supercoach season if Gold Coast's engine room can stay fit. Jones will up his average and generate cash if he's not played as a tagger. Horlin-Smith I find a lot of value in and I think he could pay off if he can stay in the best 22

    Scotland · 21/03/2017 at 21:08

    I had KK last year and it killed me, I've read he's fit and firing, but I see as a big risk at D3. I like selections of Jones, Treloar, Tich and Lynch, who are good PODS and I think will score well for you. Not sure about Horlin-Smith, but I have not followed him closely in the JLT. Good Luck!

    Keenbutclueless · 21/03/2017 at 22:44

    Like the approach to the backline. A different and positive alternative to Marchbank. Horlin Smith is a trap. Go back and look at 2015. From memory it's like 19 games at a 60 average. Get it up to Sheed or Swallow if you can. Consider Grundy down to Martin. Go check out Martin's early run. Then check Grundy's numbers when Cox plays.

      The Magpie Dentist · 21/03/2017 at 23:58

      Sweet as, I'll definitely keep it all in mind. Cheers for the input lads

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:09

    Like KK if he can get back to his form. Had a horrid run with injuries last year hence why he's so cheap. Good POD pick as I rekon he can get back to his best. Only query I have is gold coasts medical staff- are absolutely shambles

the nank · 21/03/2017 at 20:19

Didn't know Jock worked for fox sports?? http://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/jock-reynolds-ful

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 20:32

    Yes the great man has penned a few articles for them over this preseason. He did another one for Fox Sports on budget ruck options the other week. Just follow his Twitter feed and you'll never miss out.

TheHoneyBadger3 · 21/03/2017 at 20:21

Defenders: H.Shaw, T.Adams, R.Laird, C.Marchbank, C.Hampton, T.Stewart (EVW, A.Otten)
Midfielders: Danger, Treloar, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, D.Beams, J.O'Meara, D.Swallow, T.Taranto (SPP, Barrett, Pickett)
Ruckman: Nankervis, Sandilands (T.English)
Forwards: Dalhaus, Franklin, T.Greene, Roughead, Steele, McCarthy (Butler, Eddy)

Leave thoughts, I know what you're thinking my balls are well and truly on walls.

    TheHoneyBadger3 · 21/03/2017 at 20:31

    $43,500 in the bank

      The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:15

      I think you have a very solid team, I like the Toby Greene selection. Only genuine concerns could be Adams with his injury history and Steele being a JLT trap. You could move Taranto forward and downgrade Steele to a Brandon Parfitt or Harrison Wigg depending on team selections. Then you could use that cash to get Adams to a Simpson/Docherty and have extra cash for if a mid-pricer breaks down. Go with your gut because you may trade out someone that you'll regret later on. Sometimes it takes balls to win it all

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 13:11

    Look at upgrading or downgrading MCarthy. He scored 80 pts from 5 goals. Looks like he's gonna struggle to score decent scores and he's not entirely cheap

Redd · 21/03/2017 at 20:22

Heres my team community the SC Blazers let me know what ya think

DEF: Rance Adams JJ Marchbank Hampton EVW Otten Srewart

MID: Danger Pendles Treloar Fyfe Titch Steven Viney SPP Barrett Hibberd Parfitt

Dont think ive ever looked forward to a season so much good luck 2 everyone and bring it on

    The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:20

    If this team fires, you'll have a massive advantage. Can't really go wrong with it apart from Adams or JJ's injury history. Interesting to see a team that isn't using Roughy either. A lot of different but well thought POD selections

      Redd · 22/03/2017 at 12:04

      Cheers mate really appreciate the feedback with all the cookie cutter sides im seeing out there i had tp try somthing different

Massive shout out to everyone in the community for all their wisdom and posts that have assisted all us new players .

    The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:24

    Keep an eye out for team selections to watch for defence rookies, Vickers and Hibberd are rumored to not be in the round 1 lineup. If so drop Oliver down to a Swallow or a rookie and try to ugrade one of the two North defenders

      Elmeano · 22/03/2017 at 18:19

Hey guys
Tuohy, mills or Lloyd…. i cant split em right now?????

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 20:43

    Tuohy for me although partly because he suits my bye structure. Think all 3 are some of the better breakout contenders you could roll the dice on this season.

    TheHoneyBadger3 · 21/03/2017 at 21:21

    Tuohy, has more upside than the other two IMO

    Redgumwon · 21/03/2017 at 21:22

    Lloyd I like how he improved at the end of last year and he's taken that form with him into this year. DDP as well

Phil · 21/03/2017 at 20:39

In regards to the boys comments on not being able to get rid of a mid prices with no cash….if u have enough of them most likely you will need to get rid of 2. 1 up, 1 down. Not ideal but you do get to see a inform rookie and premium.

Phil · 21/03/2017 at 20:41

Who do we like?
1.Shaw & Witts
2.Goldstein & Marchbank

    Redd · 21/03/2017 at 21:23

    Like the Howe pick expecting more from him at the pies this year hopefully forms a good combo with lynden dunn

The Bont · 21/03/2017 at 20:51

Little worried about rookie job security appreciate any advice. At the moment got Hampton and two rookies in defence. I got 3 options. At the moment

Shaw evw bont

Or

Tuohy marchbank Kennedy (swans)

Or

Shaw marchbank Watson (Essendon )

Just thinking maybe adding marchbank as he will have better Js

    Redd · 21/03/2017 at 21:21

    Option 2

POM XI` · 21/03/2017 at 21:00

Hi Guys,

Really torn with these final 2 selections….

Adams or Howe?

Franklin or Lynch?

Thoughts?

    Crusher · 21/03/2017 at 21:18

    Adams and franklin

    Redd · 21/03/2017 at 21:19

    Tough call ive gone with adams and bud hopefully adams will be more consistent and they both have a higher ceiling

    TheHoneyBadger3 · 21/03/2017 at 21:22

    Adams and Frankilin – more upside

    Dac Zawson · 21/03/2017 at 22:49

    Adams and Lynch as long as you don't have too many risks already

    the nank · 22/03/2017 at 08:44

    Howe and buddy for me

Milky · 21/03/2017 at 21:02

What are our thoughts on big Steffy Martin, can go big, and might be a good option for his price

    johnno2908 · 22/03/2017 at 07:28

    Just the threat of Archie Smith killing his SC relevance though is the big question. He is poo if Archie plays unfortunately. In saying that, he is currently my R1. Like the fact he has Beams back in, as well as a super fit looking Rocky.

      Kev · 22/03/2017 at 07:53

      You never know when Brissy will play Archie. That week to week uncertainty is enough to leave him alone to start with

Jess · 21/03/2017 at 21:14

Defenders.. Docherty, Shaw, Laird, Marchblank, Hampton, Stewart (bench Otten, Vickis-Willis)
Mid… Dangerfield, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Heppell, J Kelly, Steele, Powell-Pepper, Pickett (bench Barrett, wigg, T miles)
Ruck… Goldstein, Hickey (bench cameron)
Forward….Dahlhaus, Roughead, Nankervis, Hrovat, Taranto, Ainsworth (bench Butler, bowes)

$278,100 left.
Leave it or who to change?

    Redd · 21/03/2017 at 21:20

    Like the heppell pick could be a great POD

    Crowmagnon · 21/03/2017 at 21:23

    I think you have a couple of mid pricers too many. This could lead you to run out of trades.
    Bowes is too much cash to have on the bench. Trade him to eddy.
    Then upgrade a couple of heppell kelly steele hrovat to premium players like jpk, jjk, jelwood etc.
    Watch team selections carefully, a few of your rookies may not play.
    Lastly I think the fallen premiums like sandi and beams are more likely to pay off than breakout contenders.
    Good luck.

    Kev · 21/03/2017 at 21:24

    I'd bolster up your midfield, Jess. Gets a bit midpricy after Fyfe.

    Rest of your team looks good

    Dac Zawson · 21/03/2017 at 22:50

    Ainsworth is too expensive for what he will score, I'd downgrade and then upgrade Hrovat

    Jess · 22/03/2017 at 09:34

    Ok I've upgraded hrovat to JJK and J Kelly to J Kennedy 🙂

      PJ King · 22/03/2017 at 18:15

      I think you've got a cracking defense! For me, Otten will get the boot provided Z Guthrie gets a gig.

      Have you considered dropping Danger for Selwood? Perhaps drop Hickey or Goldy for Sandi and then beef up your forward line with all that extra cash?

    wombatsfc · 22/03/2017 at 18:40

    Hi Jess, maybe upgrade/swap some of your rookies for those selected to play. Petrevski-Seton has been selected and is a very good footballer with senior experience about 180k I think
    Has Barrett been upgraded from rookie list?
    Will Wigg and miles get a game?
    Cameron wont play round 1 due to an infected finger, if the swans have a big win he may find it hard to get back in.

Robert · 21/03/2017 at 21:18

Where's Jock's final rookie cheat sheet after JLT 3?

The BONT · 21/03/2017 at 21:20

B: Shaw, Simpson, Laird, Hampton, Otten, Stewart (Vickers-Willis, Stuart)

M: Dangerfield, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, Beams, SPP, Barret (Pickett, Hibberd, Parfitt)

R: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)

F: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Franklin, Roughead, Taranto, Eddy (Butler, Houston)

Backline: is very standard like everyone else's

Midfield: gorn with one extra on feild rookie jest becasue i can't find anyone else

Ruck: I was thinking about going Nanklaids but stuck by Grundy for now

Forwardline: Gorn with three premos and hoping franklin will have a breakout season winning the coleman

$200k in the bank and all rookies subject to change

    Rivo · 22/03/2017 at 07:31

    Kelly an interesting POD, don't mind it. Not sure on Hickey keeping his avg over 90, and Steele a trap IMO. Rookies look good pending selections. I think you are one premo short, depending on how many you consider as keepers. Maybe have a look at upgrading one of Steele, Higgins or JOM to a premo like TMitch? JPK or Buddy?

      redgumwon · 22/03/2017 at 07:49

      Thanks Rivo for the feedback. I have the cash in the bank to upgrade Hickey to Gawn if Spencer doesn't play. The other reason I went with Hickey was for a POD and I have a gut feeling if Hickey plays the lone wolf ruck for St Kilda he could have a break out year. If I go with Hickey then I can upgrade Steele or JOM to one of the players you mentioned. If Kelly fires then he could be a keeper and if he doesn't then he's a stepping stone to JPK or another premo

    Hawks · 21/03/2017 at 22:47

    Like the Parker selection.

    Well balanced team, despite a risky ruck set-up.

    Burnmen · 22/03/2017 at 00:10

    Like it

Steeeve · 21/03/2017 at 22:24

Hey so should we keep Cameron at R3 and hope he plays eventually, or just go with Strnadica?
OR hope Preuss gets a game?

    SCaddict · 21/03/2017 at 23:04

    I'd just use Strnadica for loop as he's dirt cheap and Feo are a good loop side. Even if and when Cameron and Preuss get games their JS and scoring output are likely to be fairly questionable in my view.

    Anyway that's what I intend to do even if Preuss is named, unless we have some dire shortage of rookies on another line where you could consider using a loop there instead.

      Steeeve · 21/03/2017 at 23:22

      A great point Addict. Ita just going to be so. Bloody. Hard. To make money this year!
      I know last year I went in with a donut at R3 and by golly I wished I had the big Cox earning me $150K.

    Burnmen · 22/03/2017 at 00:11

    It's just an infected finger. Locked.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 22/03/2017 at 09:51

    Probably going to go strn. Took hard to loop a M11 in my structure with SPP on the bench.

    Also if by chance Sandi does get injured I would expect strn to get the call up to replace him.

      Beady Eye · 22/03/2017 at 11:01

      Might be worth noting that not only did Strnadica not play at all in the JLT, he's the backup ruck behind Sean Darcy (fellow 2016 draftee who played all three JLT matches) in Freo's WAFL team.

      If Sandi goes down, I wouldn't bank on Strnadica being the one called up. Good for loophole purposes only.

    Beezneez · 22/03/2017 at 14:03

    Am I missing something but surely using Stmadica as a loophole is only valid if you have Gawn, Goldy or Grundy or a DPP in the fwd line. The same applies to other posts asking about loophole VC and C options with Fyfe and Danger unless there is a non playing mid bench.

      Steeeve · 22/03/2017 at 15:56

      Yes I think everyone using Strnadica already has Nank (or maybe even Ryder) as ruck cover up forward.

        Beady Eye · 23/03/2017 at 13:12

        Or Cameron.

Aaron · 21/03/2017 at 22:27

Can someone be kind enough to post the code of the community group that Derek posted a while back

NoLanguage · 21/03/2017 at 22:33

Goldy or Grundy guys? For and against???

    The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:29

    Goldy: (For) He is a proven ruckmen, without a 3rd man up he can potentially up the ante (Against) Injury interrupted pre season
    Grundy: (For) A lot of upside, very close to a break out season (Against) Cox/Moore/White in the ruck may affect his scoring

Don't Blush Baby · 21/03/2017 at 22:40

Does anyone think Shaun Burgoyne will be in the top 6 defenders ? Expected to get more midfield time

    Like this team.

    Some nice POD's, think Grundy is the riskiest of the selections

      Clock Management · 21/03/2017 at 23:44

      Like the team but if ya after overall I don't think you can start a premo sun or power player(Lynch) you will have an extra rookie on the field that week,

        Clock Management · 21/03/2017 at 23:44

        that week as in week 9

noah · 21/03/2017 at 23:49

Fwd: JJK Dahlhaus Franklin Roughead Nankervis Taranto (Butler, Eddy)
Bank:$230,300
decision on wether to upgrade tuohy or not and also wanna fit Tom Mitchell into the midfield was thinking pendles out but Idk

    The Magpie Dentist · 22/03/2017 at 00:32

    Tuohy makes a good point of difference where most people will pick a Doc/Simmo, Shaw, Laird backline. If you want a high scoring defender with difference, try a Jeremy Howe or Alex Rance. I think you can downgrade Pendles to Titch since you already have Treloar there. I like the Sandiwitts ruck strategy as it has a lot of cash making potential and Josh Kennedy is a strong POD selection

poloko48 · 21/03/2017 at 23:50

Have decided to go balls out with having Fyfe, Beams & JOM, upside too tempting to ignore.

DEF: Simmo, Heater, Adams, Hampton, Otten, Newman (Stewart, ZGuthrie)
MID: Danger, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Prestia, Beams, JOM, SPP (Barrett, Wigg, Allison)
RUC: Nankilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahl, Buddy, Macrae, Roughy, Taranto, Bowes (Pickett, Eddy)

How does my team look? Have $116K left.

    Dnoyes · 22/03/2017 at 00:01

    I would upgrade Prestia unless you are really confident that he will have a breakout year.

    I have a similar team to you but what I've done is move Nank up forward and swapped out Taranto/Bowes for Witts. This is because I feel Witts will earn more money, or is more certain to get gametime than the other two. Also it will give Sandilands protection from injury.

      poloko48 · 22/03/2017 at 07:21

      I like that idea Dnoyes, I guess the question is will Witts make more $$ than either Taranto or Bowes? The fact that Witts is also there for ruck backup provides more value too, so might be worth more overall.
      I have a feeling Prestia will dominate Richmond's fairly pedestrian midfield, just a hunch. At worst he'll be OK at M8.
      Thanks mate!

Jim · 22/03/2017 at 00:14

Anyone know what tends to work best as a starting structure. Packed midfield? Packed defence? Forwards? What have pervious winners started with?

    kim · 22/03/2017 at 13:10

    Depends on which rookies are named Jim. People are saying there alot of defensive rookies this year so thats why a few are going 3-0-5 or even 2-0-6. But if ed vickers and hibberd dont make norths team or even zack guthrie it will totally screw up basically all of those teams. Alot seem to be stacking midfield this year as not as many midfields rookies seem to be available. some teams have no rookies on field for example so JOM or swallow at M8. I don't like that structure personally as it will be far too hard to make enough cash to upgrade defence and forward lines or rucks which have to be weaker to compensate for stacked mids.

    We just have to wait for friday night for sure to see north, geelong, adelaides final team unfortuantely!!

    Melbourne's Hibberd is injured, North's is playing VFL. Either way you'll need a change. Doubt that Ryan is in Lyon's immediate plans too.

    Mids strong. Wigg and Miles slipped down the list of mid rooks

    Personally prefer Taranto or WHE over McCarthy. Your call though. They will offer more consistent scoring I feel

      Suttoo · 22/03/2017 at 08:07

Carl · 22/03/2017 at 08:31

Without doing copious amounts of research just wondering if anyone had a gut feel… how many of the top 8-10 players in each line change per year? Obviously injury dependent amongst other things. I'm guessing it's 2-3 that drop in or out each year?

Thoughts?

Reece · 22/03/2017 at 08:41

Treleor or Pendles haven't not started with Pendles and I feel if I don't start him he'll come out with a bang but also worry his getting older and not full pre season

    kim · 22/03/2017 at 13:17

    Also his wife is due to give to birth to their first child in April and he said he would miss the game if if comes on game day. I'm not going in with him this year, just too many niggling doubts for me.

    Derek · 22/03/2017 at 13:35

    OldOcker · 22/03/2017 at 09:25

    Most would not consider him to be a top 8 mid.
    If you think he will be by end of season, Go with gut feel.
    Can't see it myself, Pick for the right reasons not because of POD.

    Cheers.

    Loop · 22/03/2017 at 10:21

    Good luck, I got him after the byes last year and his scores were a disaster. He's so tempting because he can go BIG but I cant go there again.

    Simon · 22/03/2017 at 16:30

    I have him in the guts…..he can go big and average is same as Tom Mitchell……I will live and die by this one

Northernsoul74 · 22/03/2017 at 09:15

Darcy Cameron ruled out of round 1 due to a finger injury.

    Steeeve · 22/03/2017 at 10:11

    Any chance Cameron never gets a game this year? For a couple years straight I've chosen a ruckman I think will make some money, only for them to never hit the park. If they're not getting a run, Strnadica would be the obvious choice.

      Bells E Bubb · 22/03/2017 at 20:21

      Yes a good chance of none if Sinclair and whats his name are back and playing well. Still he’s done well so far and they do play rookies if they are up to it. For the extra tenner it’s well worth it imho. Could also end up playing 10 games. Strnd won’t get near it and no other options; are there?

SCaddict · 22/03/2017 at 10:30

Hard to fault that side much mate. A lot of coaches have cooled their jets on Goldy this season (for a few reasons) but he has been a proven SC performer for a number of years now so you can certainly back him in if you like.

Just make sure you have as many rookies generating cash from Rd1 as possible, with just the one floating donut for captain's loophole, which for your side with Nank in the forward line should really stay Strnadica as you currently have.

    Can't bat · 22/03/2017 at 10:47

    Cheers for your thoughts SCaddict.
    Was thinking Roughie to a rookie and then a rookie to Marchbank and Rance to Docherty?????

      SCaddict · 22/03/2017 at 12:08

      Yes you could do that. Whilst you would be losing a probable keeper in Roughie you would be getting a slightly better premo defender as well as a rookie with seemingly excellent JS and decent scoring potential.

      One issue could be which rookie you'd downgrade Roughie to so you may have to wait for Thursday teams first before making that call.

Peter · 22/03/2017 at 10:55

If there are no rookie rucks named round 1, is Witts a viable r3 or is someone like Strnadica a better option to use for loophole's and to save 100k???

    Steeeve · 22/03/2017 at 13:01

    Use Cameron, he won't play round one but should get games for Sydney. He's only out one week. Will make money faster than Witts too.

Sandiwitts (CAMERON)
Dahl, buddy, McRae,roughy,nank,Hoskin-Elliot (butler, eddy)

Have picked the rooks with the best ave from JLT that should play to start on ground then gone from there. – MB, Hampton, Guthrie, Taranto, P-P, H-E, wits.

Still toying with either
Taranto forward and buddy/McRae to a 550k mid or mouch.
Or Taranto forward and roughy (or nank if I have the testicular fortitude to run no ruck cover) to JOM.

McReeedie for Carlton looks likely to get a game for the Blues……an early game Defence rookie…..HOORAY

    FEARTHEBEARD · 22/03/2017 at 14:16

    who?

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 19:58

    Wouldn't bother!

kim · 22/03/2017 at 13:58

Starting team look good mate, the difference between a good supercoach player and a very good player is experience e.g. learning from past errors (starting team and trades). Trading players will set you apart from your mates as long as you dont panic trade out your premos for 1 or 2 bad games in a row (i stuffed that up last year with barlow should have kept him).

And getting rid of rookie cash cows at the right time (most hold onto them for too long). This year may be tough with lack of rookies though so we may actually have to hold them for a little longer.

All the best for the season!

rosy · 22/03/2017 at 13:59

Jobe?
I ask myself why has he come back after everything he's been through. He's aging. He's always injured. He's been labelled a cheat. They took his Charlie away from him.
He could have easily walked away from it all and nobody would begrudge him and yet he's back. I think he's got a major point to prove.
Probably wont make it past the bye rounds but do we honestly think he won't average 100+ and pack on $100k?
He averaged 90's in the JLT with his TOG being heavily managed.
Thoughts…

    Burnmen · 22/03/2017 at 19:08

    I think you have a good point here, but even if he packs on 100K is he really worth using the trade out and then another trade in to a top 8 premo?

Vinny · 22/03/2017 at 14:04

DEF: H. Shaw, A. Rance, Z.Tuohy, C.Hampton, A.Otten, EVW (T. Stewart, Z. Guthrie)

MID: Danger, Hanners, Treloar, Fyfe, D. Shiel, Beams, Swallow, SPP (Barret, Pickett, Parfitt)

RUCK: Gawn, Goldy (D. Cameron)

FWD: Franklin, Macrae, Roughy, Taranto, Miles, Butler (Houston, Eddy)

Have 129, 400 in the bank. Looking to use it on Marchbank if Def rookies dont play.
POD in Middle is Shiel, would love thoughts on him?
Rucks have gone with set and forget, Dont want in on all the Sandliands, Nankervis and Witts drama.
Only Concern is Fwd being too light on Premos.
Thoughts overall? Appreciate any type of feedback. Thanks.

    Sam_01 · 22/03/2017 at 14:56

    Shiel although a good POD, would probably take Ward over him.. wasnt happy with any of my GWS mids last year though
    Fwd is light but what do you expect when your running Gawn Goldstien, the chance you have to take

      Vinny · 22/03/2017 at 15:07

      Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. Will look at all options around shiel. Thanks

Kevdog · 22/03/2017 at 14:33

Def: Shaw, Laird, Lloyd, Marchbank, Hampton, Vickers-Willis (Otten, Stewart)
Mid: Danger, Hannebery, Treloar, Fyfe, M.Crouch, Beams, Powell-Pepper, Barrett (Pickett, Hibberd, Parfitt)
Ruck: Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Roo, Dalhaus, Buddy, Nankervis, Taranto, Butler (Eddy, Houston)

I reckon I'm set on this structure. 164k left, thoughts ?

    sandni836 · 22/03/2017 at 14:40

    Upgrade crouch? Loyd?

      Sam_01 · 22/03/2017 at 14:53

      Like the set up, and like the extra cash should something go pearshaped very good idea. Like sandi said would only really consider a few possible upgrades with the extra cash but the team looks solid

Sam_01 · 22/03/2017 at 14:51

Alright community seems like the frantic team swapping will soon come to an end, would love your thoughts on the team
BACK: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Hampton, Otten, V.willis (Stewart,guthrie)
MID: Dangerfield, Parker, Treloar, Cripps, Fyfe, O'meara, Swallow (Powell-pepper, Barret, Hibberd)
RUCK: Grundy, Sandi
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Eddy, Houston (Butler, Miles)
Tried to go a little bit different to most teams going one deeper and having pepperpig on the bench, Im a fan of the Parker and Cripps selections i think they will both have big years, should i be highly considering other premos in their place if not im thinking they should get the job done as well as any for a similar price. Also best two starting fwd rookies? 56k left over, would love to hear everyones thoughts!

    Vinny · 22/03/2017 at 15:23

    Like the difference in midfield, maybe a bit too midpriced but then again its a hard decision with less rookies to choose from. Solid team!

    hedski · 22/03/2017 at 17:10

    I think your short a mid there Sam?

BeaglieBoyy · 22/03/2017 at 14:54

Who are the highest possession winners in the mids???…..(looking at my Real Dreamteam lineup)….its possessions that count in that format, so it doesnt matter if you kick it 50metres backward to an opposition player standing alone in the goal square, who then goes on to kick the winning goal….you still get 3 points for the disposal….with this in mind I feel that Merrett, TMitchell Beams Danger and Treloar are must haves over players with good efficiency and who affect the game such as Pendles

    Northernsoul74 · 22/03/2017 at 15:44

JOSH KELLY, or ANDREW GAFF ? Very similar players in a few ways. Has Gaff reached his ceiling? Can Kelly improve enough? hmmmmm

    Mystic Mac · 22/03/2017 at 17:22

    I've gone with Gaff. I think he's in for a massive year.

    Jake.B · 22/03/2017 at 20:01

Thanks in advance

Botswana · 22/03/2017 at 16:33

Nankervis or Roughead??? Winner takes my last spot.

    donald · 22/03/2017 at 16:51

    if you have sandi in the ruck then nank! otherwise roughy purely be cause of his durability

nick · 22/03/2017 at 16:42

who are better options than caddy in the fwd line under 500k?

    Top Hawk · 22/03/2017 at 16:57

    Perhaps Toby Greene at $492 K could be one worth considering. Cheers

    dannyyboyy · 22/03/2017 at 17:18

    i have green, great choice. id even prefer petracca over caddy

    wombatsfc · 22/03/2017 at 18:52

    Hi Nick all forwards under 500k are better options than Caddy mate, print a list and throw a dart if you can't decide.

      nick · 22/03/2017 at 19:02

      haha, really didnt approve of his jlt and moved him on to jjk but after finding room to get beams at m7 I had to make a sacrifice, now im stuck!

        wombatsfc · 22/03/2017 at 19:42

        The Beamer at M7 sounds pretty ominous mate where'd you cut corners

dannyyboyy · 22/03/2017 at 17:05

5 spots left in my league it should be some pretty fierce competition. 868299

Carl Ton · 22/03/2017 at 17:06

Know its late on but any draft leagues available to join for a draft tonight?

Randomcliche2 · 22/03/2017 at 17:26

NEW LEAGUE: mid priced madness.

Criteria: 13 or less players worth less than $250k.

League code: 517117.

All mid price maniacs welcome.

PS, someone running GnR should set that up…probably 15 players worth less than $250k, or a strict version, 16 players. Cheers

    G · 22/03/2017 at 20:51

    Exactly 13 under 250k for me, just sneak in, should be an interesting league

G'day community,
Thoughts?
DEF: Simpson, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Otten, Vickers-Willis, Hibberd Stewart
MID: Danger, JPK, JSelwood, Treloar, Fyfe, TMitchell, Beams, SPP, Barrett, Parfitt, Atley
RUCK: Grundy, Sandilands
FWD: Riewoldt, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Taranto, Pickett, Eddy, Miles, Houston

191,300 in bank so lots of corrections available early, even able to jump on a mid-pricer when they are confirmed to be good.
Thanks guys, love ya work.

Thanks guys!

    wombatsfc · 22/03/2017 at 18:45

    Spend some of your cash to get more guaranteed starters for round 1. Bench players who don't get games don't make $
    I don't think Barrett has been upgraded yet and Hibberd,Parfitt, Atley and Houston aren't guaranteed to play.

Toddgood1 · 22/03/2017 at 17:50

Pendles or Treloar????

    Top Hawk · 22/03/2017 at 18:11

    I prefer Treloar personally. Pendles average might slip a little this year (A little past his prime now) whilst Treloar's is set to hit new heights because of his younger age. He is $40 K cheaper too. Just might two bobs worth.

SillySausage101 · 22/03/2017 at 18:17

Hey guys, would really love some feedback to my team, keeping in mind I still have 116,800k in the bank.

      The Ranger · 22/03/2017 at 20:06

      Looking forward to seeing him Wombats, hope he's as good as you say, we could do with another mid rookie.
      Is he going straight into your team or will you hold off until he's on the bubble?

Lesley · 22/03/2017 at 18:42

    Replace McArthy he score d80 by sinking 5 goals.. he isn't gona sink 5 goals each week, looks like gets gonna score 30-50 consistently. Better options as he isn't a rookie?

Rucks are confusing · 22/03/2017 at 19:07

**Do you think Sandi or Nank and Grundy or Hickey or Martin**

daBombers · 22/03/2017 at 19:54

How many promises that you made last year have you broken already with your team??

Mine was no more mid-priced defenders ever again. So now looking at a 4-0-4 defence.

Taking my risks in other lines!!

$212,000 remaining salary – which seems way too much left over, pls help!

Marvin · 22/03/2017 at 20:45

So it's going to be a battle to get all four of docherty shaw laird and Adams. Haven't seen any teams with all four but I'm really struggling to decide which three to go with and see the argument for all four. Adams is the last on my list but the idea of having a mid in d appeals. Of these four which one should I leave out and by? Cheers

    Top Hawk · 22/03/2017 at 21:14

    Hi Megern, or is it Megan? 😉

    Anyhow, just so you know, this is the best team I have seen to date. And I have seen plenty of teams. Trust me.

    I love the Aaron Hall pick. That is a POD with turbo charge potential. At 519K, he is "on special" at the moment.

    P.S I have him too by the way..

    All your lines are really balanced without getting the "cookie cutter" tag.

    Good luck!

    Top Hawk

Soothsayer · 22/03/2017 at 21:09

Why has BlCk disappeared from everyone's teams, will he play round one?

Soothsayer · 22/03/2017 at 21:09

Aaaah Black that is

    Russ in W.A · 22/03/2017 at 21:58

    I'm gathering not, but who knows?…he might, Sam Petrevski Seaton got named.

Soothsayer · 22/03/2017 at 21:20

Will Parffitt play? His DPP is attractive.

CoachDamo · 22/03/2017 at 21:25

Really worried about the forward line.

Besides Dahlhaus, really worried about consistent scoring. Macrae, Lynch, Kennedy, Buddy – so much fluctuation in their scoring. Is anyone having trouble selecting an F2?

    Russ in W.A · 22/03/2017 at 21:57

    You'll be ok, fwd line hasn't scored that well the last few years anyway, you'll probably be thankful for a 90 average for this season at the end of it.

    Michael · 22/03/2017 at 23:22

    Macrae should be consistent enough as he doesn't rely on goals and usually gets 25+ touches most weeks

Andy · 23/03/2017 at 08:23

Just confirming we can trade players (not Richmond or Carlton) after tonight's game and it won't cost is trades? So we can wait for the rest of the teams to be announced?

Cheers

    Shake n bake · 23/03/2017 at 09:47

    Yep unlimited trades for rd 1

Thomas · 23/03/2017 at 09:14

Hey guys, this is my team. Got 196k left over
DEF: Simmo, T.Adams, Laird, hampton, Vickers – willis, Otten (Stewart, Guthrie)
Mid: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Treloar, Priddis, Fyfe, O'meara, SPP (Hibberd, Pickett, Barrett)
RUC: Grundy, Sandy (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahl, Lynch, Roughead, Hoskin Elliot, Butler, Miles (Houston, Eddy)

I am thinking about having Beams at M7 and SPP at M8. Is that too deep? Doing this trade would leave me with 82k left over which is enough for rookie adjustments. If i don't do the JOM to Beams trade, i am not sure what i would spend my 196k on. Thoughts?

    Mitch · 23/03/2017 at 14:51

    North Melbourne have announced the EVW won't male his debut in round 1. Ive personally got both beams and JOM. A lot of injury risk but huge upside if they stay fit. It depends on what you're looking for. If you're after cash generation go O'meara. If you're looking for a potential season long keeper then beams is probably the go assuming they both stay fit.

Shake n bake · 23/03/2017 at 09:44

Macreadie to be a late in for the blues.

Rick · 23/03/2017 at 11:33

Suggestions ar great. Do i keep both O'meara and Swallow and try to get Steele in there? Do i downgrade someone?
Also would love suggestions on Rookies, I missed out on Butler who had a great game in FWD.
Just wanting to get the right structure, thanks
