LekDog’s Lockout Day Adjustments

Published by Lekdog on

Last Minute Changes

Today we’re going to talk through last minute changes to our squads and why (probably) they are a bad idea.

Specifically the last minute changes that we haven’t really researched, the changes that are more of a gut feel than an educated decision, the changes that will probably land us in a world of hurt.

Prior to First Lockout

Before we get into last minute changes I’m going to highlight some considered and educated changes I made to my side between my team reveal and lockout.

Aside from the usual rookie changes, I turned Jake Lloyd, Teia Miles and Shaun ‘Bloody’ Higgins into Caleb Marchbank, Jarrod Witts and Adam Treloar.

The theory behind this is that group a) Lloyd/Miles/Higgins would feasibly score 880/600/900=2380 across the first ten rounds whereas group b) Marchbank/Witts/Treloar would score 800/750/1100=2650 across the first ten rounds.

Essentially I just moved into a more Guns and Rookies approach to ensure maximum point scoring and cash production as apposed to risking a breakout contender in Lloyd and an injury risk in Higgins. Pretty simple stuff, but this is what I would call an educated decision that ultimately strengthened my midfield and mitigated some midpriced risks.



Grabbing Butler’s Score

Like many I had Butler on the bench with the E on him, as he was named on a forward flank I didn’t expect him to produce many points. Jarrod Pickett who I had selected on field was named on the wing and seemed the better option…how wrong I was. Butler scored 96 Supercoach points whilst Pickett scored a miserable 28.

As I wanted to grab Butler’s score but also didn’t want to trade in a 0, I traded Otten out of my defence (and through swingsets) brought in Preuss and slotted Strnadica in my forward line. Effectively by losing my short-term RUC/FWD swingset I’ve backed in Witts/Preuss to outscore Houston/Eddy…a fairly safe bet in my opinion.

If you are considering trading in a 0 to grab Butler’s score I would highly recommend that you don’t. The 30-40 points you gain this week is not worth sacrificing cash generation, it just isn’t. You can talk yourself into Darcy Cameron but I see no realistic outcome where he plays in the near future.

My Major Change

Now, aside from moving my rookies around with swingsets there is only one change I have made to my side. I have traded Scott Pendlebury down to Gary Ablett.

That’s right, I’ve brought in God himself.

The rumors surrounding Pendlebury’s Achilles started me down this path, and whilst I have a very reliable source that says he’s fit and firing once I went down the rabbit hole there was no turning back.

Basically I was looking to downgrade Pendles to another $600K player. My options were Tom Mitchell, Marcus Bontempelli, Patrick Cripps, Gary Ablett…wait how is this even a discussion?

Yes Ablett still has queries over his body and yes Ablett has the early bye…but he’s Gary Ablett!

According to Old Ocker’s spreadsheet he has averaged 126.6 points per game between rounds 1 and 8 across the last six years. Now admittedly the last two years have been significantly less than that due to injury but even in 2016 Ablett went 6 rounds before dipping below a score of 100.

This selection started as a gut feeling but evolved into a fleshed out and well-informed decision. Ablett is only in 7.5% of teams and it’s Gary Ablett. I’m backing him and hoping the Supercoach Gods don’t smite me down.


CoachKings Tonight

What Not To Do

The last thing you want to be doing today is changing your structures, you have them in place for a reason.

If like me you made your decisions during the last week and researched them well, great! But if you are starting to get nervous because it’s the last few hours before Friday Night Footy and you want to make changes for changes sake, don’t.

If a player isn’t in your team right now it’s for a reason, you don’t rate him as much as the players you have selected. That’s fine, close your browser, delete the Supercoach App and walk away.

You’ve done the hard work and you’re team is already at it’s best. Any more alterations will just risk undoing your whole preseason.

Breathe community; we are going to have a massive year.

See you in the comments and on Twitter @Lekblog…love Lekdog.


Ken · 24/03/2017 at 14:02

Kayne turner or jy simpkin??

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 14:15

    Simpkin. First round pick & they will want to develop him ASAP. Don't rate Turners JS

    Luskin Star · 24/03/2017 at 15:32

    Paul Roos was very bullish about Simpkin the other night.

Max · 24/03/2017 at 14:08

Pendlebury or Treloar???

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 14:19

    Supercoach scoring rewards players with elite disposal. Nobody uses it better than Pendles. Rarely misses a target. And hence why he has scored like a monolithic beast for the best part of a decade. The concern is the Achilles. If he plays tonight he's in my team. But there are strong rumours he will be withdrawn pregame

      Schooner · 24/03/2017 at 15:08

      Supercoach also rewards goals, which is exactly what Treloar will bring this year

        INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 15:30

        Sure to kick a few. Schooner I've got a date with you after work

          hedski · 24/03/2017 at 15:40

          Beat ya to it Pie, knocked off at lunchtime and downed half a dozen already.
          I'll be legless by the first bounce tonight.

            INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 16:01

            Solid afternoon's work right there Hedski. Make sure your team is sorted before your completely obliterated. I like the 12 Schooner strategy personally. If I have 6 that makes me overconfident & I suffer trade regret. However after 12 I'm incapable doing anything stupid based in seriously impaired vision

    Mich · 24/03/2017 at 14:22

    Pendles is king but I think Treloar will overtake him this year barring injury

    rosy · 24/03/2017 at 16:41

    I think we'll look back at 2017 and say that was the year that Treloar became an absolute lock. I have him as a top three Brownlow finisher and a player who will average 30+ disposals and kick 20+ goals. And I hate Collingwood.

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:44

    Both 🙂

Rufhead&SheSwallows · 24/03/2017 at 14:11

What are the community's thoughts on the Bont?
I'm not sold on him but I'm stuck for choice now as money is tight and has to upgrade rookies elsewhere, such as Guthrie and Miles.
If it helps I already have Titch.

    tommy · 24/03/2017 at 14:33

    absolute jet mate, lock him in, and throw away the key

    Kev · 24/03/2017 at 14:57

    Cripps last night a good example of what can happen to a player with an interrupted preseason.

    Valens_FC · 24/03/2017 at 15:00

    I think he has a great chance of finishing top 8 this season… he's got that untaggable thing about him, similar to GAJ and Danger. But he also has a round 11 bye, which makes him a great upgrade target imo.

    rosy · 24/03/2017 at 16:46

    The Bont isn't just a pill gathering beast. He can impacts games in a major way. High efficiency by hand and foot, tall enough to take the contested marks, floats FWD to kick/setup goals. I'd rather have 20 Bont disposals than 30 Priddis disposals, let's put it that way. Lock.

Sdd · 24/03/2017 at 14:13

Grundy or martin??

    Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 18:59

    Martin. There's no way Cox play as a FT forward, he's useless there after a third of the game. He'll play a third in the ruck fo sho.

      Col · 25/03/2017 at 08:44

      Ahhh it's true. What do I do with Grundy now? Will wait one more week to see if it continues

OldOcker · 24/03/2017 at 14:13

Good stuff Lek,
BUTT I can't read this article because I closed my browser before reading it.

Steeeve · 24/03/2017 at 14:13

So should I go Cameron out, Preuss in?

    MEMES · 24/03/2017 at 14:20

    Cameron is only out this week because he has an infected finger. Should be in next week. Preuss will also have competition from Daw if he doesn't go well.

      Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 19:02

      This week was Cameron's big chance. He'll be behind Naismath now so if N plays well it's the neafl for cameron for a good stretch.
      Totally depends if you need the DPP imo.

    Higgs · 24/03/2017 at 14:30

    I would. One is playing, one isn't. With Tippett and Sinclair I can't see Cameron getting much games (not that Preuss is much more secure)

      hedski · 24/03/2017 at 14:38

      Tippet and Sinclair are both injury prone (maybe, no research went into this comment)

    Kev · 24/03/2017 at 15:07

    Swans should have no trouble against Port. Hard to see Horse changing a winning team if he doesn't need to

TheGreatBozza · 24/03/2017 at 14:14

I've been tossing up between Shaw/Adams/Mills all pre season!! Which two should I go? Going mills will allow me an extra FWD or safer rookie picks

    Higgs · 24/03/2017 at 14:22

    Adams 100%. He'll be a top 3 defender. Worry about his injury if he gets one.

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 14:31

    I'm going Howe > Adams

    rosy · 24/03/2017 at 16:54

    Heater is a lot like GAJ in that everyone is waiting for him to drop off and justify why they didn't pay for him in the beginning. Fact is, he hasn't dropped off yet and until he does, he's still a lock. Scored over 120 eight times last year including a massive 203. Just go to footywire.com and look at his SC record. It's amazing.

Tommy · 24/03/2017 at 14:15

Thoughts on JJK?

    Mystic Mac · 24/03/2017 at 14:22

    Lock him in and throw the key away.

    Higgs · 24/03/2017 at 14:23

    Should be a top 6 FWD. Supercoach loves contested marks and goals which he lives off

Dan · 24/03/2017 at 14:18

Any thoughts on Bowes?

    Higgs · 24/03/2017 at 14:21

    Locked for me

      INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 14:31

      Based on what I've seen he's a chance to outperform his price. Pass

    Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 19:05

    Should see plenty of games. Hasn't scored at all well so far. For an extra 30 you could go Taranto.

Higgs · 24/03/2017 at 14:19

Any chance Preuss is a better cow that Eddy, or Parfitt?

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 14:28

    Every chance if he keeps playing. But that's a big if

Wood · 24/03/2017 at 14:19

If you had to start one of these who's the go ??

B Eddy
J Simpkin
D Houston

    Col · 24/03/2017 at 14:29

    I am backing Simpkin

    Valens_FC · 24/03/2017 at 15:02

    I think Houston likely to play further up the ground and get more opportunity than the other two. Eddy playing up forward away to the Swans is a tough ask in your first senior AFL game.

Hugh · 24/03/2017 at 14:26

Do i start with Barrett or SPP ?

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 14:59

    That's a good question. SPP won't be throwing the Swans big bodied mids around like rag dolls. I'd perhaps role the dice on Barett this week

      D4N · 24/03/2017 at 17:57

      a mature age SPP will thrive under the contested game the swans will play.
      Wouldn't trust many lions to step up this week against a suns outfit on a mission, especially not a player like barrett

Rivo · 24/03/2017 at 14:29

EVW not playing? If so, do I trade him out, move Hibberd from mid bench to D6, trade in Mountford to mid bench or leave and run with a Stewart as D6?

    Dnoyes · 24/03/2017 at 14:44

    I'd move Hibberd to defence for EVW. I'm not sure if Mountford is the best replacement though.

      Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:09

      Agree can't see Mountford playing many games with Cunninngton to come back. As much as I'd like another cheapie near his price

    Beezneez · 24/03/2017 at 14:59

    Have the same dilemma with Otten as well as EVW. Will have to wait till teams drop but I was toying with the idea of trading Roughead to Taranto (have 3 premos and Steele) and Otten/EVW to Z. Jones which would also involve trading JOM to Swallow to make up the cash shortfall. I can also move Hibberd to defence but would prefer his DPP in the mids. Berry could be back soon which would alleviate this. Was also thinking to hold off to evaluate next week and, after reading Lekdog's notes, will wait. Hopefully, one or both are named although with Ottens I don't like having 3 Crows in my def. I also had Butler as an emergency and Pickett on the field – will have to leave anyway as Pickett is my F6.

      Rivo · 24/03/2017 at 15:07

      Thanks Beez. I will certainly hold until teams finalized. I also have Ottens on the bench so like many have a nervous wait.

    Valens_FC · 24/03/2017 at 15:04

    Someone will make way for Cunnington next week and it may be Mountford. The thing I like about him though is that he laid 7 tackles in his first JLT game. With the long-term injury to Jacobs, maybe they like him as the run with / defensive mid and it won't be him who is dropped for Cunnington.

    Beezneez · 24/03/2017 at 15:07

    PS. J Smith from Melbourne may be an option if he's named in the starting lineup.

      Rivo · 24/03/2017 at 15:17

      Yes thanks – just noticed that too.

Luxy · 24/03/2017 at 14:29

Anyone have any thoughts on Tom Phillips..or should bat down to WHE?

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 15:02

    Tom Phillips is the classic preseason trap. If Pendles Treloar Adams & Sidebum run out there tonight pick WHE

nankilands · 24/03/2017 at 14:34

houston or smipkin. eddy might kick 6 and get 100 though

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 15:44


    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:11

    He'll do that at some stage this year but not in the wet against the Swannies

      Dukes · 24/03/2017 at 17:29

      Gonna be a wet one. Eddy wont be kicking 6 this week

Tom · 24/03/2017 at 14:37

Roughead or Steele

    Mick · 25/03/2017 at 00:08


Thommo88 · 24/03/2017 at 14:42

The Big Question alot of people are thinking with spencer not playing do we find space for Gawn?

Over the likes of grundy or similar priced player?

Patch · 24/03/2017 at 14:43

Beautiful, Lek. Soothing. Calming. Just what we needed.

Although you've left me floundering on the Higgins train and I'm not sure if I would be able to forgive you…. if I hadn't also ditched #Nankilands and brough Gawn back in. So I guess we're even

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 15:03

    Nankilands is half way to a ripping start

      hedski · 24/03/2017 at 15:46

      I'm hoping Gawndiballsnanked is even better.

Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:02

Any spare spots in competitive leagues?

Browny · 24/03/2017 at 15:08

JJK or Lynch?

    Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:18

    JJK. WCE will be kicking alot of goals….

Patrick · 24/03/2017 at 15:12

Adams and Tom Lynch or Howe and Riewoldt??

    Footy · 24/03/2017 at 15:14

    Flip a coin really but I'd maybe lean to 1st as Howe could swing forward?

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 15:46


      Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 15:56

      I would go 2 aswell

Freaking out · 24/03/2017 at 15:12

Is there any other "safer" rookie defender bar Hibberd, Stewart, Smith and Hampton? Worried about Otten.

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:20

    Otten will play don't you worry

    bUCKET__ · 24/03/2017 at 15:49

    Otten's JS just got a little better with another injury to Cheney. Only Lever to take his spot now and looks like he's being eased back into it.

    Captain Risky · 24/03/2017 at 15:51

    Apparently Cheney has had a setback with his hammy, so you'd think that helps Ottens case a bit.

    rosy · 24/03/2017 at 16:56

    I wouldn't waste energy worrying about Otten. Will play.

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:14

    Otten will play. Smith from Melbourne is another option

sddd · 24/03/2017 at 15:13

Who has better job security Mountford or Simpkin??
Feel like it is whoever plays better

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:20

    Simpkin. He's the #1 draft pick, they'll want to blood him

Butler(C) · 24/03/2017 at 15:13

which 2 from Barrett, Parfitt and Mountford?

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:19

    Barrett, Parfitt 🙂

Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:18

Almost set on my team…. any feedback would be awesome guys (not too sure on the rookie selections) — Premo keepers in bold

Def: ADAMS, LAIRD, JOHANNISEN, Marchbank, Hampton, Hibbert (Otten, Joyce)
Mids: DANGER, TRELOAR, BONT, FYFE, TITCH, SPPowell, Barrett, Mountford (Pickett, Parfitt, Atley)
Fwd: NRIEWOLDT, JJK, DAHL, FRANKLIN, Steele, Hannan (Butler, Eddy)

    Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:20

    Also, would love a competitive league if anyone has a spare spot

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:21

    Not too sure on your Johannisen pick, haven't heard about him all preseason but maybe he'll have another big year! Just remmeber that Bob Murphy is back and may affect his scores.

    Like the rest 🙂

      Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:40

      He's not a popular pick, but I like him and he's a gun. Happy for JJ to slip under the radar……
      Any spare league spots?

        Winner64 · 24/03/2017 at 16:15

        136388 – 3 spots left

    SC King · 24/03/2017 at 16:35

    Awesome team Ben, I just copied it (hope you don't mind)
    Who is your captain and vice this week?
    Also would it be okay if you popped in here every Thursday, just to let me know your trades, captain and emergencies. Thanks mate.

      Bruiser again · 26/03/2017 at 02:31


    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:17

    How do you pick Hannan with no JLT form? I thought he didn't play am I wrong?

      hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:18

      I picked SPS cos Wombats said so.

min0008 · 24/03/2017 at 15:33

which one of Franklin, JJK or Lynch?

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:38


      Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 15:56


        ghengis · 24/03/2017 at 17:14

        Lynch is going to finish as no 2 fwd this year behind roo

JEL · 24/03/2017 at 15:36

Looking to swap EVW to J Smith.

Anyone think this is a bad move?

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 15:38

    Nope that's a good move!

    INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 15:38

    EVW won't survive the cut. Mark that in the book. Smith all the way

      Pauly Walnuts · 24/03/2017 at 16:06

      I have Hibberd, Stewart, Otten ,not sure if Smith JS is as good as them? does anyone think the same ? Also like most teams I have Hampton who's been named on an extended bench ?

        JEL · 24/03/2017 at 19:23

        I've already got Hampton, Otten, Hibberd & Stewart, so going with the thought that if Hibberd is in, EVW will cool this heels for a few weeks at least.
        Good to get confirmation that Smith is a good swap. Thanks Guys.

    Claxy · 24/03/2017 at 18:52

    J smith will make way for Hibberd in a week or two

mac · 24/03/2017 at 15:43

any competitive leagues with spare spots? finished in top 3% last year

    Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:48

    Im keen for 1 mac…. want to create a new one for anyone in here?

Neverweaken · 24/03/2017 at 15:50

Houston or Eddy as a cash cow on the bench

Ben · 24/03/2017 at 15:50

Heres a new league code…. anyone feel free to join up!!

Steeeve · 24/03/2017 at 15:53

So I have Cameron at R3.

VC is on Pendles, C on Danger.

Thinking I will see how Pendles goes and if he gets a captain-worthy score I'll use Cameron to loophole it.

If Pendles doesn't hit the mark, I'll swap Cameron to Preuss (who's actually playing) and leave the C on Danger, since I don't need to loophole anymore.

Anyone else considering something similar?

    Smote · 25/03/2017 at 01:14

    In Pendles we trust…..good call Steeeve….wish i'd done the same.

Finnius123 · 24/03/2017 at 15:55

Steele + Roughhead or JJK + Florent? Already have Fyfe, Sandy & Beams so want to minimise my risk profile – but these guys are so tempting as a pair on pure scoring ability. If either of them prove to be spuds then I am screwed. What do you reckon?

Marauderr · 24/03/2017 at 15:55

Is Jack Gunston worth having in my team? I really like him as a POD

fionaamudala · 24/03/2017 at 16:01

Taranto or Will Hoskin-Elliott? I can't make up mymind 🙁

    Wal · 24/03/2017 at 16:13


      fionaamudala · 24/03/2017 at 16:16

      and ur reason/s? I'm definitely leaning that way and have a few hours to make my final change

    Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 19:11

    WHE hasn't scored well in his career as yet, Why is that going to change now? (Haven't even considered – genuine Q)

James · 24/03/2017 at 16:05

Guys I just saw max Gawn is gonna ruck on his own and I took him out of my team before and out grundy in. Do I stick with grundy or try get Gawn back in. It could mean I have to downgrade Sandilands to witts tho.. or do I just stick with what I’ve got now. Pls help

Def…Simpson, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, Hibberd EMG Vickers Willis, Stewart

Mid… Danger, JPK, Selwood, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, JOM, Powel pepper EMG Barrett, Wigg, Parfitt

Fwd… Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, Pickett, Butler EMG Miles, Eddy

Ruck… Grundy, Sandilands EMG Strnadica

    Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 16:24

    Stay I reckon. You can't make 3 or 4 changes just to get one player

    Saundo · 24/03/2017 at 18:57

    For Gawn you can and I just did go with your gut I say

Kevdog · 24/03/2017 at 16:07

Jake Lloyd or Zach Tuohy ?

    Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 16:24

    Lloyd out of the two

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:23

    Been on the leprechaun all preseason but relented, think I'll regret it.

Harrold · 24/03/2017 at 16:13

HOWE or ADAMS? TARRANTO or FLORENT/BOWES? REIWOLDT or JJK? Just need to nail down these last fe spots.

    Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 16:25

    Howe, Taranto and Riewoldt, that's what I've gone with anyway

NorthMelb · 24/03/2017 at 16:14

I'm not to sure on smiths or ottens js. Just wondering if going berry would be a bad idea to get instead and loophole till he plays. Keeping in mind I have no other loophole options

    BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 16:19

    Yes I agree regarding Otten and Smith JS, very shaky.

    Beezneez · 24/03/2017 at 16:30

    AFL website says Berry only a week away – not sure if that's right but gives food for thought.

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:24

    I've got both of those boys on my bench. Otten's JS is fine as Bluey Cheney just re did his hammy

Rick Grimes · 24/03/2017 at 16:15

Lloyd, Reiwoldt, WHE


Adams, JJK, Simpkin

    Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 16:26


    Joel · 24/03/2017 at 16:52

    B. JJK has Mitchell feeding him this year. Only concess is Adams ability at getting injured

Ben · 24/03/2017 at 16:19

Guys whos the top "Must-have" rookies to have this year? Just got back from holidays and trying to finalise my team. Also apparently the SC site is giving misleading info on whos playing….. cheers

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:24

    Read some rate my teams and pick the popular ones if you havnt done any research. Also there has been a few rookie articles on here

Jimmyjimjim · 24/03/2017 at 16:19


    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:26

    JS for both isn't an issue. Howe will Ave 100 if he plays half back all year. Adams will Ave 105 as long as he plays. Howe could be moved fwd, Adams has injury history. Adams for me

Imgonnalose · 24/03/2017 at 16:21

Hey guys can I please get score Vs tog for WHE, Taranto, turner and schoenmakers

    Rick Grimes · 24/03/2017 at 16:25

    There's a very handy spreadsheet on here from about 2 weeks that will answer all your questions.

Imgonnalose · 24/03/2017 at 16:33

Can't open it on my terrible phone

Reggie · 24/03/2017 at 16:37

Thoughts on having Teia Miles from Hawthron to get butlers score. Seems like he should play soon and I rather have miles than Houston I think. Thoughts community.

    Finnius · 24/03/2017 at 16:40

    Don't do it. You can't be sure that he will play.

    derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:20

    i think he is a fair way off getting a game.

    the hawks have hardly any injuries this year (thanks to an extra couple of weeks break over last September)

    there were a couple of good players who also missed out, Stewart, Burton, Brand, Lovell…. i rate them all very high. Even Whitecross missed out this week.

    HODGE needs to come back in next week…… very tough

TheBlindSpider · 24/03/2017 at 16:40

G'day Community,
With Spencer is out of the side, I’m panicking about not having big Max. I’ve been running with the SandiWitts combo, but thinking about reverting back to my original pairing of Gawn &Sandi. Will leave me a bit thin in the fwds though. Any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers
Option 1: Gawn, Simpkin (1-2-3 forward structure)
Option 2: Reiwoldt, Witts (2-2-2 forward structure)

James · 24/03/2017 at 16:40

Who out of Selwood, Priddis, Bontempelli and Ward ?

    Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 19:13

    WC have a good home run in the early part of the year I think. Mitchell could feed him handballs so he might get more kicks this year. Was in my team until yesterday.

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:27

Nddjdndh · 24/03/2017 at 16:47

JPK in the wet against port. Might be a good vc option?

    derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:14

    he does like the wet.

Squiz · 24/03/2017 at 16:55

Mountford or Hibberd, Mounts PPM far better, seems to be JS queries tho?

the bont · 24/03/2017 at 17:03

at the moment I have housten forward, hibberd back and parrif middle. should I get rid of housten and put parif forward and hibberd to the middle bench and bring in otten in defense.

Bam bam · 24/03/2017 at 17:08

mcrae and tarranto or steele & roughy

    Sully321 · 24/03/2017 at 18:22


Dutch · 24/03/2017 at 17:12

Long time, first time

Final dilemma:
Gawn and O'Meara
Grundy and Beams?

    Bells E Bubb · 24/03/2017 at 19:16

    tough choice. Cox is going to steal points from Grundy I reckon. Cause he's too slow at FWD they'll need him to ruck a fair bit after he tires.

      Dutch · 24/03/2017 at 19:48

      Yeah I am sitting on option 1 at the moment, O'Meara makes me nervous though, even if he is the only midpricer in my midfield

INPieman · 24/03/2017 at 17:12

The most relevant SC article I've ever read came out late Feb from Champion Data. It was based on the top 5 scoring players against every team in the last 3 years. As I spread sheeted the results I was quite surprised. There were 7 clear stand out beasts. It was of no surprise to find Gary & Pendles at the top of the list. But the man who was 3rd caught me off guard. He was the only ruckman from the Magnificent 7. He's currently in less than 12% of teams & sitting at my R1. The only one of the magnificent 7 that isn't in my team is Rocky. Couldn't squeeze him in

    BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 17:35


    BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 17:50

    Are the seven: Gazza, Pendles, Goldy, Selwood, Danger, Fyfe, Rockliff?

      I N Pieman · 24/03/2017 at 18:14


        BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 18:22

        Can't go wrong Pieman! Only one I'm unsure of is Gazza.

        Derek · 24/03/2017 at 18:31

        JPK must have been close

          BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 18:40


          I N Pieman · 24/03/2017 at 19:02

            Don't Blush Baby · 24/03/2017 at 19:12

            Thnx, this franks my Ruck decision all along , Norfs draw before the byes is excellent

              hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:29

              Goldy Stefan?

                INPieman · 25/03/2017 at 10:10

                Honourable mentions to JPK & Beams as wel

derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:13

nice write LEK.
i changed my team a bit as well, VickersW >> Smith. i like it.

but i didn't trade Pendlebury to Ablett!!!! what the crazy is that??

i thought you might have gone say, pendlebury to treloar…. but straight to gaz, did't see that coming!!

good luck mate.

    Snsnsdjj · 24/03/2017 at 17:18

    Did you get butlers score Derek?

      derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:29

      yeah. had him onfield. he looks a good rookie.

        Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:38

        Derek thoughts on Simpkin vs Florent for F5. Only spot not locked away. Or suppose Shoey is the only other rookie avail. Have Butler, Houston, Eddy

Patch · 24/03/2017 at 17:19

SUNDAY TEAMS NAMED: Andy Otten is IN, Jackson Thurlow is NOT. Anyone with Dom Sheed will be disappointed to hear he's been left out. Myles Poholke and, as expected, Ed Vickers-Willis are not playing!

derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:22

i just read that Cheney has hurt his hammy again, minor i believe. Will set him back a few weeks, maybe Otten might hold his place for a few weeks.

    Beezneez · 24/03/2017 at 18:03

    I think it will be out of Otten and Kelly when Lever comes back but the other may have to go when Cheney is ready. Having said that Otten is playing well as he did in the SANFL at the end of last year. Good to see him back as a former Rising Star runnerup.

Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:30

Gawn otten easily

gator59 · 24/03/2017 at 17:30

LLoyd or Mills

    TheGreatBozza · 24/03/2017 at 17:38

    I like Mills for the extra 40k in the bank

joe · 24/03/2017 at 17:31

reiwalt or kennedy

    TheGreatBozza · 24/03/2017 at 17:37

    Go Roo. In for a blinder of a year

Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:33

Simpkin vs Florent for F5. Only spot not locked away

    derek · 24/03/2017 at 17:37

    both play in forward line, would be more likely to be in Sydney's forward line than Norfs

    has been very wet in sydney last few weeks, not good for small forwards. toss a coin and go Simpkin, slightly better JS

      Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:46

      Cheers Derek – good luck for the year

    Bells E Bubb · 25/03/2017 at 11:21

    Last year a country plumber via the rookie draft killed it playing the same spot. Florent is an elite draft pick AND will also be sharking it out of packs and taking handballs from JPK and Parker much more than Papley did. ROTY contender imo.

Harley · 24/03/2017 at 17:35

What's better.

Shaw, Adams and Omeara in middle


Howe, mills and Titch in middle?

The first appears better but has more injury risk

    joe · 24/03/2017 at 17:51

    option one

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 18:00

    Option 2.

TheGreatBozza · 24/03/2017 at 17:36

Adams and Grundy


Mills and Max

Also Hannan vs Simpkin vs Houston

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 17:50

    I have Adams and max so hard to choose but Gawn wins. Houston on par with Simpkin Hannan last

TheGreatBozza · 24/03/2017 at 17:37

Also Lynch & Selwood


Macrae/Buddy & Bont

gator59 · 24/03/2017 at 17:40

Which 2 to play on ground out of Hibberd, Stewart, Smith or Otten .. Cheers Guys

    Having the same battle. I like Hibberd and Stewart

wighty · 24/03/2017 at 17:42

Hate my start..dusty, murphy, butler, nank, all on ground

Already running swallow and beams in mid

Carl · 24/03/2017 at 18:01


Squads are being cut to 22 for the three Sunday games, with final teams dropping …


– Adelaide's final bench is Curtly Hampton, Andy Otten, Wayne Milera and Troy Menzel. Emergencies Riley Knight, Miles Poholke, Riley O'Brien

– GWS has named Devon Smith, Tim Taranto, Matt Buntine and Tendai Mzungu on in its final 22. Nathan Wilson, Dawson Simpson and Sam Reid are the emergencies


– North Melbourne's bench is Scott Thompson, Kayne Turner, Sam Gibson and Ben Brown. Emergencies Ryan Clarke, Ed Vickers-Willis, Sam Durdin

– West Coast has left out Dom Sheed. It's final bench is Chris Masten, Jack Redden, Drew Petrie and Mark Hutchings. Sheed is an emergency alongside Tom Barrass and Will Schofield


– Fremantle's final interchange is Connor Blakely, Nick Suban, Darcy Tucker and Lachie Weller. Emergencies: Tom Sheridan, Hayden Crozier, Matt Tabener

– Sam Menagola misses out for the Cats. Interchange: Andrew Mackie, Daniel Menzel, Jordan Murdoch, Tom Ruggles. Emergencies: Menagola, Darcy Lang, Cameron Thurlow

    BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 18:06

    Menegola out? Surely is better than Mackie, Ruggles and Murdoch? Any Geelong supporters thoughts?

      Carl · 24/03/2017 at 18:25

      Not a geelong fan but would have thought so. He is a slightly different player to some of those others

      Cr0magn0n · 25/03/2017 at 09:38

      As a Cats fan I can't believe that Menegola isn't playing, surely he is our 4th or 5th best midfielder, and also consider that Guthrie isn't playing, Hope Mitch Duncan decides to step up cos we need someone else to help carry the load

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:33

    Read on afl Lang could be in for Guthrie?

Mitch · 24/03/2017 at 18:02

Hey community. Big question that most people would be all asking themselves –

Taranto, Hoskin Elliot or Mcartney?


    crusher · 24/03/2017 at 18:20

    same problem here. In order I think Taranto Elliot Mcartney but job security would be opposite

Steve · 24/03/2017 at 18:05

Taranto and Roughead


Omeara and McCarthy/Toranto?

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 18:26

    Option 1 because Rough. He'll Ave more than O'Meara come seasons end

    Junior · 24/03/2017 at 19:07

    Taranto. Everyone questions his job security. But he will be fine. Coniglio 6-8 weeks and deledio….. well lets be honest will he ever be fit? If so give him 3 games and he will reinjure himself. Taranto will play 15+ games

    Bells E Bubb · 25/03/2017 at 07:21

    3 to 5 for fraud.

Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 18:09

Oliver Florent, worth it as an M7 & $166k?

Gibbs · 24/03/2017 at 18:15

Thoughts on Lachie Neal? I really like him as a pod and rubbish claims he can't score with Fyfe! Look at last jlt and first 5 rounds last year as well as other teams with 2-3 star midfielders! Only thing im worried about is if he has as high a ceilng as trelore!

Should I trade him to trelore, kennedy, hannerbry or hold?

    Imgonnalose · 24/03/2017 at 18:27

    Hold don't change your team now

defying · 24/03/2017 at 18:16

Roughy with cash in the bank or a key forward/higgins.
Also is having swallow and Omeara in the one team a bad idea

    defying · 24/03/2017 at 18:17

    also is starting without laird a misplay

Henry · 24/03/2017 at 18:16

otten, hibberd or stewart at D6???

Happy Fyfe · 24/03/2017 at 18:19

Bowes,JSmith vs Simpkin,Otten? Not enough cash to go Bowes, Otten.

And who on field out of Stewart, Hibberd, Smith/Otten?
Leaning towards Hibberd at the moment…

GNR · 24/03/2017 at 18:21

Ppls thoughts….
Neale @3% owned or
pendles @15% owned?

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 18:26

    Neale IMO

      I'm glad I didn't listen to a stranger

joe · 24/03/2017 at 18:22

not for m7

Sully321 · 24/03/2017 at 18:23

worth trading out one of eddy or houston to take butlers 96?

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 18:29

    If you're going for the 50k, yes
    If you're just in leagues, no

    Conundrums · 24/03/2017 at 18:47

    did you read Lek's article mate?

      Sully321 · 24/03/2017 at 19:00

      i did but i dont completely understand what he meant

        Youngy · 24/03/2017 at 19:16

        its a long session dont trade

        Randomcliche2 · 26/03/2017 at 22:32

        Lek was saying cash made on a rookie once invested into the team will deliver a greater return over the season. I'm not sure if he was assuming you already had one donut. I am of the opinion though that you need at least one donut for captain loophole. Thus welcome my team LDC (freo) as my mid/fwd donut. Cheers

Youngy · 24/03/2017 at 18:24

Decided to put pickett on field instead of Butler so I am rethinking who to put onfield.

Stewart, otton or Smith onfield for m6

Florent, Barret, Mountford or Powell Pepper for m8

Houston or eddy for f6

Also am I crazy for considering Gazza over JPK please someone help I'm panicking.

    Flubber · 24/03/2017 at 18:29

    Otten for your D6

    I'm probably going to end up going Barrett for M8, just because Sydney vs Port will be in rain

    Eddy for F6

    Don't go Gazza over JPK. Is there someone else that you could possibly upgrade to Gazza and keep JPK?

      Youngy · 24/03/2017 at 19:12

      Decided to downgrade pendles to god. bad move.

      But u gotta risk it for the biscuit

    Adsy · 24/03/2017 at 18:45

    I missed the Butler boat yesterday but I've either gone or would go:
    D6: Stewart (personal preference over Otton and Smith)
    M6: Powell Pepper with Barrett for E
    F6: Houston over Eddy given wet conditions
    Gaz v JPK: Lekdog makes a good argument for GAJ but depends on your overall risk strategy. If you are risk averse, JPK will play most games and have a good average. GAJ on the other hand may be injury prone but could be the POD that wins you the league or gives you a flyer in the rankings.

Mich · 24/03/2017 at 18:25

Lloyd or Laird?? If i go laird ive got a crisp $100 bill in the bank

      Mich · 24/03/2017 at 18:38

Thats Mountford to the midfield. Worried who will score more,..

How come Joyce (saints 102k) is showing up as green on the app

    gator59 · 24/03/2017 at 18:44

    Think it's a SC error

Saundo · 24/03/2017 at 18:45

It is a worry that spencer is named as first emergency playing against saints probably looking to play more running team but he could come in next week?

Jonathan Camac · 24/03/2017 at 18:49

anyone have any spots available in their leagues that I could fill? Thanks community.

housten or smith?

Tony · 24/03/2017 at 18:54

Hi Guys who do you think will score more Matt Crouch and McGrath or David Swallow and Callum Mills

    Derek · 24/03/2017 at 19:28

    Mills and McGrath

Imgonnalose · 24/03/2017 at 18:55


Both these leagues need filling boys and girls

BrownlowBoy · 24/03/2017 at 19:03

Barrett or SPP onfield. Wet conditions in Sydney mean clangers or more contested possessions?

    Philby · 24/03/2017 at 19:11

    Given that 3300 points are still allocated I would have thought wet weather is good for midfielders & ruckmen in general.

    Danners · 25/03/2017 at 09:58

    Loophole SPP in if he does well

Ben · 24/03/2017 at 19:04

omeara & kennedy or roo & swallow

    POTS · 25/03/2017 at 13:28

    More consistency with Roo over Kennedy i reckon

Junior · 24/03/2017 at 19:05

Lloyd or howe?! I have 40 mins to decide ?! Help…. please

    Saundo · 24/03/2017 at 19:09


Ben · 24/03/2017 at 19:06

Quick question before the game starts tonight..
swallow out for a rookie meaning SPP and Barrett on field in mids so I can upgrade Lloyd to one of shaw/Adams? If yes which one? Cheers

    Derek · 24/03/2017 at 19:31

    I have had adams most of the pre season. Right now I'm starting worry. Saw what Shaw can do. I think Shaw. Worried about Adams playing all games

      Derek · 24/03/2017 at 19:37

      Adams is charper and has DPP…… hmmmmm Adams!!

      Ben · 24/03/2017 at 19:39

      I was the opposite, have had shaw all preseason and downgraded him to Lloyd to get Gawn in.. not sold on Lloyd so was gonna shuffle swallow down to then keep Gawn and make Lloyd shaw again but that price tag….

        Derek · 24/03/2017 at 20:17

        I ended up staying with Adams. Love my DPP

          Ben · 24/03/2017 at 20:40

          Fair call and he's looking good so far! I stuck with what I got but don't trust Lloyd as a breakout so will trade him up to shaw and swallow to rookie, was so close to going Adams though haha

            Derek · 24/03/2017 at 21:08

            I've stuck as close to GnR as I could. Only 2 midpricers. Mills and Sandi. Very temped by Beams though

Sully321 · 24/03/2017 at 19:07

ive still got a 2-0-6 backline and i know the article says not to change structures but ive been away for a couple of days and haven't been able to change anything. with evw out should i look at changing my structure a little bit by downdgrading selwood to a rookie and upgrading in defence?

Also is it worth trading houston/eddy to cameron from the swans to get butler's 96?

    Imgonnalose · 24/03/2017 at 19:35

    No way mate stick to your structure it's imperative

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 19:38

    If you had Bank D3 stick fat

      Sully321 · 24/03/2017 at 20:02

      what about the cameron trade?

        Carl · 24/03/2017 at 21:10

        Not worth it at all

John · 24/03/2017 at 19:12

Would you rather:

JPK and another midfielder 240k or less( already have Barret, SPP, Mountford and Parfitt) to play M7.


JPK and play Barret as M8 with SPP at 7 and get a rookie on my bench


Tom mitchell and swallow?

Please help me out community.

Philby · 24/03/2017 at 19:15

Help me Patch, Lekdog, Wayno, Jock, Monty anyone!!!
Major changes to my team. Witts out for Gawn. Roughead out for Hannan. Adams out for Lloyd.
I've been convinced that Witts can't play. 50 Rohnd 1 last year as sole ruckmen. He is Tom Bellchambers in disguise. Am I crazy? Forget it, I already know I am

Lho · 24/03/2017 at 19:20

Hey guys having last minute decision

Lho · 24/03/2017 at 19:22

Hey guys having last minute decision changes! have ended up needing to decide between Buddy, Macrae or Taylor Adams…

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    Sau · 24/03/2017 at 19:23


    Shawnn · 24/03/2017 at 19:28

    I'd say Adams for me

min0008 · 24/03/2017 at 19:35

Beams, Taranto and Mountford
O Meara, Swallow and Ainsworth/Bowes

Daniel · 24/03/2017 at 19:41

Which option is the better choice?

Stef Martin and Taranto


Gawn and a 123k rookie

Defying · 24/03/2017 at 19:47

thoughts on hannan or housten?

    Carl · 24/03/2017 at 21:10


Dont · 24/03/2017 at 20:25

SC points on Fanfooty don't look right ?

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 20:27

    I think the nbn is rooted

    Steeeve · 24/03/2017 at 21:04

    Everyone who VCd Treloar certainly hopes they're not

      Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 21:23

      He is a beast though, loves to get his hands on the pill.

        Steeeve · 24/03/2017 at 21:53

        Game breaker, but butchering it a bit tonight. Reminds me of Danger, which is a very good thing

hedski · 24/03/2017 at 20:26

Howes doing well.

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 21:30


      Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 21:41

      Still time mate 🙂

Tommo09 · 24/03/2017 at 20:44

Get a touch Bont

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 20:54

    Marathon not a sprint Tommo, he just kicked a great goal but he does look a tad rusty, he'll be fine, one of the game's best young guns.

      Tommo09 · 24/03/2017 at 22:34

      Had a good game after all

Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 20:52

And Pendles is fine…Jumping the gun a bit there Lek?…..Pendles will go 100 + this game and Ablett may last awhile or may not quite probably but I'd rather stick with Pendles. How come you still traded him out when you knew he was playing?

    Steeeve · 24/03/2017 at 21:05

    Never matters if Peddles is "injured". He's sheer class.

      Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 21:14

      Agree Steeeve, all class, although I picked Treloar over him, I'm avoiding God this year unless he proves his durability.

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:24

    Double ouch! with Pendle's score tonight.

SC king · 24/03/2017 at 21:30

SC have to be wrong.

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 21:40

    I think it's a bit delayed until Supercoach live HQ starts.

Derek · 24/03/2017 at 21:51

Cox is really hurting Grundy

    Ben · 24/03/2017 at 21:55

    What should we do with grundy

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 21:56

    Grundy should change his Jocks 🙂

      Don't Blush Baby · 24/03/2017 at 22:05

      A lots of points being shared around tonight , no stand outs compared !

        Darcy · 24/03/2017 at 22:15

        Grundy to martin.. saw the ruckman his against in the first 11 rounds all second rate. Averaged 100+ before. No archie smith as well.

          Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:51

          Premature decision I reckon, give the guy a chance, it's the first game.

    Danners · 25/03/2017 at 10:05

    Grundy still looked alright though, still scored 82

    Bells E Bubb · 25/03/2017 at 11:28

    Told yers. Cox looked great in the ruck and terrible up forward. Grundy holders will be worried. If you went with him gotta stick with it though. Cox is a week to week proposition if White can do a bit of ruck work.

Chippa · 24/03/2017 at 21:57

Where is the Herald Sun Live HQ?
All other live SC score sites seem broken.

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:01

    Frustrating I know, I think it might not start until round 2, until after we've paid for it.

Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:17

Pretty good effort from Collingwood tonight considering how crap they were last season.

Don't Blush Baby · 24/03/2017 at 22:21

I have been playing NRL Supercoach a lot longer than AFL and I'm not sure everyone knows that on 'Game Day' the SC Scores are progressively LIVE , Why is't AFL ??

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 22:51

    It is they've just changed where its at.
    They don't have the "Game day" any more (hs site)
    Hit the banner on the game, say pies v dogs and you'll get options for stats, sc scores etc.
    When your in sc site game day(head to head) u can go to players and it ranks them in order showing scores, wasnt working first half this game.

      hedski · 24/03/2017 at 22:55

      PS. Phone only not sure about desktop.

        neil Demons Delight · 24/03/2017 at 23:25

        quarterly sc scores on either footy fa n or footy wire

Krups · 24/03/2017 at 22:28

Pick Laird over Adams?????? Ok

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:45

    Pick both I reckon.

Tophawk · 24/03/2017 at 22:31

Wow. I changed Howe to Adams in a moment of panic madness today. Both were superb tonight. Very happy I went Taylor Adams in the end. Just don't get bloody injured again! Great job Taylor Adams. Welcome

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:45

    Only 3 sc points difference in the end.

    hedski · 24/03/2017 at 22:53

    Glad I kept Howe Toppa.

Rick Grimes · 24/03/2017 at 22:34

How can they justify Treloar's score. He should be on 115 min. Better get scaled or that's a fecking joke.

    Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:43

    Had 5 clangers and went at 72% efficiency unfortunately, on the upside he had 33 disposals.

      Derek · 24/03/2017 at 22:52

      Thought it was better than 96

        Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:57

        It's only rust, he would've scored 125 usually, I think a clanger is -6 every time.

Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 22:49

Sounds like a dream start Holty! lol, At least you got 100 combined from Rance and Cripps hahah…smashing it.

    Derek · 24/03/2017 at 22:50

    Pendles was a class above.

      Holty · 24/03/2017 at 23:52

      Yep thats why i laugh when people say treloar will overtake pendles this year. Treloar will be a good pick but however he picks up those extra 8 points a game i just dont think will happen.

Borko · 24/03/2017 at 22:57

Read earlier that Atley traveled with PA to Sydney … could be a late in for Eddy in the wet? Would be a nice way to grab the Butler's score without compromising structures!

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:06

    They always travel with an emergency

Scottpendelbury · 24/03/2017 at 22:59

Buckleys got a team full of good players still cant win Could be 1st coach gone . The style Adams plays is fraught with trouble..can see him getting injure soon

Alex · 24/03/2017 at 23:23

Should I chase butlers score or roll the dice on Houston/Eddy or another foward rookie

    Danners · 25/03/2017 at 10:03

    Get Butler's score, can't see either of the Port fwd rookies scoring over 80

Russ in W.A · 24/03/2017 at 23:26

Thinking about taking Bont's score over Danger's potential, am I nuts?…thinking Danger might have a rusty game and go sub 100, I mean it's possible right?

Dogs · 25/03/2017 at 00:42

After reading so many opinions on treloar overtaking Pendles I nearly made the last minute swap. I know it's only the first game, but glad I stuck fat with Pendles and had the VC on him.

2gamesin · 25/03/2017 at 02:15

How we going?

I'm 822 for 8 players

Should have VC'd Pendlebury but went Treloar

How are you going?

    johnno2908 · 25/03/2017 at 07:20

    639 from 7… terrible start but it's only early. No Nank, then Doch and Caddy underperforming.

    Rivo · 25/03/2017 at 07:53

    561 from 6. Left Pickett at F6 & paid a heavy price. He will be on the pine next week. :-/

    Danners · 25/03/2017 at 10:01

    522 off 5, all my players so far played last night so fairly pleased especially with #DePendlebury

    Seb · 25/03/2017 at 10:08

    595 of 6 okay start

    Tim · 25/03/2017 at 12:36

    741 from 7 with the VC on Pendles (so 887). Pretty happy with that start considering the 7 includes Nank, Butler and Marchbank.

The BONT · 25/03/2017 at 07:06

Someone told me to go Titch over the BONT because of his preseason.


    Captain Risky · 25/03/2017 at 07:56

    I did a last minute downgrade of the Bont (based on Cripps performance who I didn;t have) and bought in Beams. Hopefully that goes ok and I still have the extra cash, but the Bont is looking good!

    Keenbutclueless · 25/03/2017 at 10:53

    You asked for and received a lot of advice from the community over the preseason. The Titch versus Bont decision was very factual and very logical. (No, it wasn't me who gave that advice, but I would have if someone didn't beat me to it). Look at Cripps and Rance for example. Iwas surprised you asked it. If you are going to call yourself THE BONT it seems like a fait accompli that you are going to pick him. I hope you did.
    I hope I am reading this wrong, but it sounds like you have asked and received a lot of advice, but are now criticising people if that advice doesn't work out. Please don't do that. None of us are experts. We are all trying our best to help other like minded people out.

      Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 18:16

      I'm kinda sick of all the "advice"he asks for, how much is too much?…try thinking for yourself BONT, that's the fun part of the game, making and living with your OWN decisions.

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:04

    Let's wait until TMitch has played

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/03/2017 at 13:56

    On 50% complete.
    Can't make a call until Titch is finished with the bombers

      The BONT · 25/03/2017 at 16:07

      He is versing the bomber tho so he will probely go big

Doc · 25/03/2017 at 08:03

Lads last minute dilemma.

1. Do I run with Houston on ground (and strandica as R3 donut).
– have gone sandiwitts in ruck , so swing set with nank but miss out on butlers 96.
– houston will probably out earn preuss depending on JS

2. Or cardilo-deluca as forward donut and pruess at R3.
– provides a swing set with Pickett/Taranto forward and mids
– lets me take Butler's 96 (was emergency)

    Phil · 25/03/2017 at 09:28

    Don't mind option 2 Doc but I'd go Balic instead of cardilo deluca is you've got the spare 20k. I think it's worth it. That way Balic is your early loophole but should play later, by which time someone else will be dropped (prob pruess)

    bUCKET__ · 25/03/2017 at 11:12

    I've gone Deluca. Whilst a R3 donut is probably best long-term, I'm feeling much safer being able to loophole between fwd / mid rookies.

    Saw Balic during the televised coverage of the WAFL and he is definitely a ball magnet so could get a game. Bit of a butcher however, not great skills or decision making.

    Doc · 25/03/2017 at 11:18

    Thanks guys. I'm settling with option 2.

    Will just have to burn a trade if witts stinks it up (nank to ruck and bring in an affordable forward). 1 trade not the end of the world given I love the flexibility of the mid/forward donut for loopholes.

Tommo09 · 25/03/2017 at 08:06

Thoughts on Josh Kennedy for VC in the wet?

    Holty · 25/03/2017 at 08:44

    Like it tommo. Although my decisions last few days haven't been the best

Ben · 25/03/2017 at 08:58

44K left. Want some advice for weekend games now teams have been announced:
Do i downgrade H-Smith (234k) to Barrett? Get extra money
Keep Swallow and Taranto or upgrade one to Steele?
Other thoughts, I think Turner (171k) can also come down to Houston or keep?

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Marchbank, Hampton, Smith (Stewart, Otten)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, Mitchell, Beams, Omeara, Swallow, P-Pepper (Horlin-Smith, Pickett, Hibberd)
RUCK: Gawn, Sandi (Strndeca)
FWD: Dahl, McCrae, Rough, Nankervis, Taranto, Eddy (Turner, Parfitt)

    INPieman · 25/03/2017 at 09:42

    Horlin smith is too sepemsive for the bench. Send him to barettt every day of the week

    Noirlust · 25/03/2017 at 15:42

    Get horlin smith on the park. If he is in your side keep him. He will make you good money and score well. Menangola of last year.
    Wish i had room for him. Might being him in yet. Just not sure how.

JXer · 25/03/2017 at 09:46

Forgive me Pendles for I have sinned. Fell for the Treloar hype. Gets a lot of it, but there's plenty of junk with his disposal or dinky 1 metre handballs.

    johnno2908 · 25/03/2017 at 10:19

    Great player. Same thing happened end of last year, all this talk about injuries goes bang with a 165. Can't believe I picked him up at pick 13 in draft

      INPieman · 25/03/2017 at 12:54

      13th in draft! Bargain. Pendles looked like Pendles last night. He's lost nothing. Hes such a great player to watch. Even better when he's in your SC team, as he should be. Treloar will not take his crown. If you don't have Pendles you've made a mistake & you need to fix it up before he kills you

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:03

    Pay the price!

neil Demons Delight · 25/03/2017 at 09:46

I chose Treloar over Pendles and longterm it will work out.It was out of pendles selwood jpk who went. If Selwood /JPK go ok then I am happy

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/03/2017 at 13:57

    Me too purely for cash
    Will likely finish pretty similar

andy_89 · 25/03/2017 at 09:55

Community, still tossing up my final mids. Have Danger, Selwood, Fyfe, Treloar, Priddis, Beams, Swallow and SPP on field

Have $150k so can have anyone in the Priddis position

Considering Garry, Hanners, Titch, Neale and Rocky


    Danners · 25/03/2017 at 10:02

    Back your gut instinct if you feel Priddis is going to do well

Valens_FC · 25/03/2017 at 09:59

1) Burgoyne, Steff Martin and Taranto OR
2) Tuohy, Gawn and Florent OR
3) Shaw, Steff Martin and Florent

    Valens_FC · 25/03/2017 at 10:08

    Or 4) Mills, Gawn, Taranto!

      Keenbutclueless · 25/03/2017 at 10:44

      Mills Stef for me. The extra cash might give you JOM or even Oliver.

Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 10:04

Whats the go with this Darragh Joyce (DEF) kid who has been named to play for St Kilda this week. He got no JLT games so I presume he has simply been named as a temporary replacement for Leigh Montagna? Montagna should be back next week so Joyce will likely be a "one game wonder"? Or is there more to this kid? Any thoughts appreciated. Cheers

    johnno2908 · 25/03/2017 at 10:14

    Not on the team sheet, just seems to be an error on the SC site. Speaking of errors, the live scores are being shithouse this year

      Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 10:33

      What a joke that is!! Come on Supercoach, get your sh-t together and fix the glitch! How many SC players are going to get sucked in and get him in as he is only $102K, and then find out he was not even picked by the saints…….We can call that the "unintended loophole" manoevre. HEHEHE

        Phil · 25/03/2017 at 10:35

        He currently has 4.2% ownership so quite a few. The kid is a red head Irish lad who is a curling champion. True story

    demons delight · 25/03/2017 at 11:22

    is that a typo TH DARRAGH or Darrell cant find him anywhere could be another Jim Stynes

    kwahpot · 25/03/2017 at 11:42

    He's not playing. ''Welcome'' (as you would say)

    Green dots aside …
    It not just a matter of he won't play, more importantly he CAN'T play.

    He is an unelevated rookie.

johnno2908 · 25/03/2017 at 10:12

Torn with this decision… currently running option 1 at R1 and M6.
Option 1: Gawn and Crouch.
Option 2: Stef Martin and Beams.

Option 1 means I don't get Nank in and have Darcy Cameron as ruck cover, but have Gawn who is a good captain option. Option 2 gives me enough cash to get Nank next week, with the plan of going Sandi to Gawn mid season upgrade.

The BONT · 25/03/2017 at 10:21

Smith or Otten on ground

Hibberd or Barret or Pafeit on ground

    Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 10:47

    I put Butler on the ground so i guess I am on a bit of a roll picking the playing rookies to date. (Touch wood)

    With the midfield rookies, all three will stay on my bench. I am putting Peppa Pig (SPP) on the field. I reckon he should enjoy the wet conditions today against the swans. (Pigs like mud)

    Smith or Otten is a toss of the coin job. I will probably whack Otten on the field. He had plenty of action in the JLT and did very well. Its an Adelaide home game and Otten (Hampton and Laird) are still likely to see a fair bit of the footy in the back line as they are playing a powerful GWS side.


Westy · 25/03/2017 at 10:30

Butler came in for me because Black wasn't named. Another reason I love the GFC!

    Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 11:04

    The GFC? Is that the GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS? I hated it.

    OOOOH, sorry!!

    Did you mean the GEELONG FOOTBALL CLUB?

Jambo · 25/03/2017 at 10:35

Score update guys and gals?

I'm sitting upon 729 with 15 left to play. My C hasn't played yet.

    Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 11:00

    It's early, very very early. However, you are ahead of me at the moment with a "played player" average of 104. I am sitting on 582 with 16 left to play. My captain has not played yet also. My "played player" current average sits at 97. Still plenty of firepower in the shed.

    Dogs · 25/03/2017 at 11:11

    630 from 6. I'm going to loophole Pendles tho , so it'll be 776 from 6 with C played. 5 rookies left on ground from my remaining 16. Still have danger, Selwood, jpk, Fyfe, titch and beams to run in my midfield.

    bUCKET__ · 25/03/2017 at 11:17

    741 from 7 no C, but doesn't mean sheet until my riskier selections get onto the field today. Only regret is not having Pendles VC.

    Ryder Beams Steele Roughy O'Meara Mitchell

    Safe to say I'm poopin my pants here even with some points in the bank.

    wombatsfc · 25/03/2017 at 11:24

    727 from seven played with 8 Premos + Roughy,Jom,Sandi,ZJones,Taranto,Hampton,Otten still to play. Had V on Spud Treloar

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/03/2017 at 14:01

    About where I hoped to be just under 500 for 5 players including 2 rooks.

    Some over performed some under
    how it goes.

Nick · 25/03/2017 at 10:44

Looking at my expensive rookies.
Do i go Horlin-Smith to Barrett/Florent
Turner to Florent/Housten/Simpkin

Or keep Horlin-Smith in the mids for Geel

Top Hawk · 25/03/2017 at 11:13

Out of these three, who does the community prefer? (Rank from 1 to 3, 1 being the best) Jack Bowes, Oliver Florent,
or Jy Simpkin?


    Keenbutclueless · 25/03/2017 at 11:49

    throw a blanket over them, Top Hawk. But I would go Florent and Bowes ahead of Simpkin because of DPP. Then maybe Florent ahead of Bowes because Sydney a stronger team. But splitting hairs.

Luke · 25/03/2017 at 11:19

Should I keep Joel Smith on the bench or trade in Vickers-WIllis to use as a loophole option? rather than having all bench players playing?

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:01

    Get warm bodies on bench to make CASH

Saundo · 25/03/2017 at 11:25


Goldy, sandi, Wingard, Rioli, omeara, beams or

Gawn, witts, roughy, McCarthy, Ward, j Selwood

    Jess_Coach · 25/03/2017 at 12:09

    2nd by a mile

The Bont · 25/03/2017 at 11:38

Eddy or parrfit on ground?

    Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 18:38


Neverweaken · 25/03/2017 at 11:47

Must tattoo it on my hand.
instead of Treloar who even if he went well was a 110 to 120 score I must start to take risks with the VC. Should have put it on Reiwoldt or Kennedy. Cos if they go big it's gonna be huge.
So do I risk it or put it on Fyfe or Jelwood. Or follow everybody and swap Jelwood for Danger.
Gut says Geelong will struggle.
But then gut said Treloar is better choice the Pendles.
And gut said Murphy will do well.
So maybe I'm due for a good decision and will put C on Reiwoldt.

    Noirlust · 25/03/2017 at 15:54

    Captain sir nick

Countdown · 25/03/2017 at 11:50

I have Roughie, Titch and O'Meara. Looking at Titch to JPK, any thoughts?

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:00

    JPK is justifiably $60k more.

Dutch · 25/03/2017 at 11:58

Today's dilemma:

Beams and Steele?


O'Meara and Higgins?

    Pom · 25/03/2017 at 12:08

    Beams and Steele. 100%

      Dutch · 25/03/2017 at 13:05

      Thanks Pom, leaning that way at the moment – figure Beams and O'Meara may both miss a couple of games through the season, but Beams has a chance of becoming a keeper and O'Meara does not. Higgins could also become top 10 fwd, but that is a big if. Still worried Steele may be a JLT trap, hope I'm wrong.

The BONT · 25/03/2017 at 12:02

Hibberd or Barret or Pafeit on ground

    Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 18:38


Dave · 25/03/2017 at 12:16

Is Jarrod Berry, from Brisbane someone who will play?

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 12:58

    He is playing in a NEALF practice game today. Look out for reports how he goes. Can't be far away

      Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:54

      He is on my bench.

Pom · 25/03/2017 at 12:25

Sat with $80k on the bench and happy with every position.

Do I hold the cash or upgrade Titch to Selwood or potentially Ablett.


    Dave · 25/03/2017 at 12:36

    It's a hard question to answer as it depends on who you think will score the most of the lot. My pick of the three would be selwood as I think he would be the most likely to be a top 10 mid of the three.

POTS · 25/03/2017 at 12:45

You suggest not to trade in a 0 for Butler's score. After playing around a little I can complete the following:
1. EVW out
2. move Hibberd from MID to DEF,
3. Florent in to MID and
4. T. Miles (HAW) in FWD for Houston- Butler as E

Haven't seen him but JLT scores seem similar to Houston (60 ave v 53 ave). He does have MID/FWD DPP which is handy.
So effectively it is EVW,/Houston v Florent/Miles

Is it worth it for Pendle's VC score and Butlers 96?

    johnno2908 · 25/03/2017 at 12:56

    Have to take that VC score and 96 from Butler definitely worth it. Houston might not play after this week anyway.

    Derek · 25/03/2017 at 12:57

    miles won't play much this year

      POTS · 25/03/2017 at 13:31

      Will he play more than Houston?

        Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:53

        Houston playing this week. That's a plus.

        Miles has a lot ahead of him at hawthorn. Whitcross, Lovell, Stewart, burton.

    Keenbutclueless · 25/03/2017 at 13:00

    It's a good plan. Really it's whether you use Miles or someone else. Others on this site have suggested Baltic. Hasn't played JLT, but apparently is pushing for selection. Miles killed it in JLT but can't get a run.

Derek · 25/03/2017 at 13:12

I know the season is very early, but already after just Two games I can see a trend.

The three players who stood out for me the most, 2 of them were clearly best on grounds and the SC score showed this, Dusty, Pendles and The Bont.

The GUNs!

The cream!

Pay the price!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/03/2017 at 15:06

    With salary cap can't afford them.all but got as many as I could.:)

    Noirlust · 25/03/2017 at 15:55

    Dusty will spud it up sooner or later. Though he does need to max his price for his next contract.

Kim · 25/03/2017 at 13:53

leauge i need to be filled anyone welcome code 610865

Juzzy · 25/03/2017 at 14:23

G'Day community.

I know this has been mentioned but I feel compelled to post this warning as it still seems almost 1 in 20 supercoaches have decided Darragh Joyce is a valid option.

Ignore the green dot ! He won't play , not this week, not this season.
He is a rookie listed Irish project player who, by his own admission, is still coming to terms with the shape of the ball.

I have resolved, however, to trade him in as a loophole player prior to finals just because of his absolutely awesome name.

    Tophawk · 25/03/2017 at 15:38

    Well, there you go. 5% of all supercoaches will have their season wrecked because of SC administration has made an error within the game portal. One has to assume it is an honest mistake, but nonetheless, if a supercoach goes on with Joyce in their side and finishes top 100, that coach would be in a position to make a claim for some prize money. Sort it out NOW Supercoach. Totally unacceptable.

      Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 18:13

      They did the same thing in the AFL Fantasy game, there are no viable Rucks to choose from from Essendon, in the Draft and Matchday games, and even though McKernan is the only ruck they have, he's not listed as a ruck, just a fwd.

Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 18:10

Decided not to trade some non scoring spud in in order to get Butler's score and ended up leaving Eddy on the field….lol, woe is me, it's only one game I guess but sheesh!…touch the thing will ya Eddy?

Luke · 25/03/2017 at 21:22

Should I take Gawn's 128 as VC. Ive got Danger as Captain. 128 is a very good score but then again Danger can do anything

    Russ in W.A · 25/03/2017 at 21:33

    I'd say bet on Danger topping that…cause he's a gun….your call.
