Dusty

Who to put VC on..rocky or Ablett?

Zaza

Ablett

Jeffreyhead

Gaj all the way ser

BigBoyBananana

I understand clangers take away points etc etc, but how in the fkn fck can you tell me that Treloar can get 96 off a game like that? Howe and Adams also robbed and then Bont with 8 kicks 120? Gonna be a long year

BigBoyBananana

Was feeling the exact same Jock πŸ™

Joestar

Compare Butler's 96 with Treloars,what a friggen joke

adam

Jock think we need an inquiry into our champion data friends this w/end…. not sure if they are trying new software but something has been completely off this weekend…. players are scoring well, then losing 20-30 points to only get it back again at games end… perfect example was Laird today, was 30+ near the end of the first, dropped back to 18 halfway through the second when he had 17 touches, only to finish hte game on 112 with 40+ and then get adjusted to 147.. he isnt the only one… something suggests they have been on the Collingwood party bus….

Rick Grimes

At one stage he had something like 13 disposals for 27 points. I watched the first half and saw maybe one clanger. Otherwise pretty clean. There were blokes with 5 possessions and 60 points. Can't fathom how they scored that game. Really have doubts over the scoring accuracy.

Noirlust

Same thing just happened with the saints game

Kenny

How the propeller heads come up with some of these scores has baffled me for years .. it seems that if you are a popular player with the media it is easy to score big, if not you can have 30, kick 3 and lay 5 tackles and yet only get a lowly 70-80 points. On the other hand, players like Cyril get points for going to the interchange bench and some more when he comes back on!!

BigBoyBananana

Haha yes Kenny, watch Cyril score 90 points tonight against Dons for kicking 2 cheap goals and having 0 impact on the win. Whereas players like Treloar trying their guts out all night trying to get the Pies back in it score 90 odd off 33 touches

Derek

Sounds good

Kev

I somewhat agree, BBB. Seems much more goes into it than effective/ineffective possessions. Would love some transparency. I didn't think Treloar was stand out amazing last year, tough to argue 33p (20 kicks) @72% isn't worthy of at least a ton though

BigBoyBananana

Exactly Kev, hoping for at least some consistency this year or else I may have to resort back to selecting players who Champion Data froth over (Rance, Bont etc)

@t_woof

Agree BigBoy. Standard Champ Data rort.

Dee

That's what you get for picking Treloar over Pendles…. Karma is a biatch! 146 VC…. yyeeoooow!!!

trent

Dee is the guy who has one player go good for round 1, then flames out mid year when he's made all his trades to correct the rest of his trash.

πŸ™‚

Moustachio

Could be scoring chains? Also there are bonus points for big plays when game is close… Bont always finds himself in position to get these.

Rooey

I'll start by saying treloar and Adams were mugged by champion data last night :(((

Kano

Adams butchered it all night. Trelosr stiff though

INPieman

Well you can tell who the champion data lads do & don't have in their teams

Gus

Feeling the rookie pressure today. Bowes, Simpkin or Florent ? Houston, Eddy or Hannan ? Hibberd, Stewart or Otten ?

Seeker

taking into account job security and price, with the first 3 I'd go Sympkin over Bowes. With the second 3 Hannan is too unknown for me. Eddy will play almost every week and is rock bottom, Houston might get three weeks tops early on. Of the last 3 take them all if you can however Stewart has best JS followed by Hibberd Otten could be in and out all year

Josh

Florent, Hibberd, eddy

Gibbsy

In the same boat Gus. I'm leaning towards Simpkin over Florent, as I think he has the better JS even though he might score a little less. I haven't picked Houston (poor JS) or Hannan (no JLT), so I think Eddy would be the safer pick. Hibberd and Stewart both seem reliable options. I'm worried about Otten's spot as a key back, knowing that Lever and Cheney are soon to be back in the next few weeks.

Kenny

I'm not as worried about Otten's js .. Cheney has had a setback with his recovery so will be a while before he returns and it will be through the SANFL first which should give time for Otten to ripen. Plus he is taller and Cheney often had to stand much bigger opponents last year. Good luck

Pom

Have $80k in the bank and pretty happy with my team but…

Do I hold this cash for potential correctives or upgrade Titch to Selwood/Ablett?

Thoughts?

Pom

Thanks Jock! Titch has been in since day 1 and he'll remain.

Pendles going large has had the old school premiums in my mind! I just want this round to over so we are fully locked out!

Crabb

Had a dream M. Crouch scored a 60, Jock. Very relieved this morning. Don't want this happening again. Very nervous.

bAps

Selwood 100%.

Big Daz

Titch stays !!!!

Lach

Why would you trade a player that scores the same and is cheaper?

Jake

Josh Kennedy or Hannebery

sambochristie

I have both. Leaning towards JPK if I had to choose one though big fella.

Tim

I think Hanners. Off the grog and had a big pre-season apparently. Ultra consistent. JPK has a bigger ceiling, but can often be picked off midway through the year for a fair bit cheaper than his starting price.

Abel

Parker for me

Seeker

Have neither but I was very close to going JPK (held firm on Pendles in the end) . The only difference I see between JPK and Hanners is JPK kicks more goals

the nank

JPK for mine, his averages are insane when tmitch isn't play

killer

Jock are you thinking Rancey may not be the SC premo he was ,Dusty not pushing back so much in 2017 may hinder Rance in not receiving that occasional chop-out at ground level,it looked like Houli's role has changed in lew of this gamestyle ,Caddy might be the answer & not forgetting Lids run from Wing/Half back,it looks like Rance has been effected mostly ,, am I wrong mate

Kev

I think he's just underdone. He was injured preseason don't forget

Epidemick

Rance does better when it is clear who is his opponent and he is set a real challenge. That won't be his best game for the year

undypuncher

pretty happy i went howe over rance πŸ™‚ going n reiwolt as vc today hoping he goes large. so far its been the stalwarts of supercoach looking the goods no suprises yet

INPieman

I have Howe. If he stays in that role all year he will be one of the best defenders

Cameron

Jock how do you feel the rookies performing and do you see yourself going more of a guns / rookie strategy?

Scyb

I just gone with Gazza. Going to back him. Just thinking whether to put the C on him. (got jibbed by VC trelor last night)

Jake

Am honestly considering trading grundy to nank, thought i was following my guns by not picking him but champion data seem to love the kid, and dear god someone please talk me out of it

Cameron

Seems like a sideways trade. Buy low sell high

Bravis Toak

don't do it.

It's a knee jerk reaction to the first round. You swith them now and next week Nank will score 70 and Grundy 130.

Just hold, Grundy will bring your points and the trade is not worth it.

Seeker

Waste of a trade

INPieman

The idea of the game Jake is to increase the number of premiums you have in your team. Not trade them because they scored an 80. And to a mid pricer! Jake slap yourself in the face please. If Nank goes welll next week find another way of getting him in

Brad

WBDs historically are hard to score against as a ruckman. 80 odd is a decent score against them

KEN BRUCE

Do it, unless your chicken, bok bok bok

Adam

Current team:
Def: K Simpson, H Shaw, R Laird, S Burgoyne, C Hampton, A Otten, (M Hibberd, T Stewart)
Mids: P Dangerfield, S Pendlebury, J Kennedy, J Selwood, N Fyfe, J O'Meara, D Swallow, S Powell-Pepper, (O Florent, J Barrett, J Pickett)
Rucks: T Goldstein, A Sandilands (L Strandica)
Fwds: N Riewoldt, J Roughead, W Hoskin-Elliot, C McCarthy, T Taranto, K Turner, (D Butler, B Eddy)

Should I keep Shaw and O'Meara or trade them out for M Priddis and Z Jones.

The Coach

Keep them.

Cameron

Yeah I'd keep them

Tim

Keep them.

Tim

Sorry, posted that as a comment instead of a reply by mistake. Maybe trade Burgoyne down to a rookie (J Smith maybe) and McCarthy up to JJK or Franklin. Your forward line is very thin.

Tim

But maybe Burgoyne down to rookie (J Smith maybe) and McCarthy up to JJK or Franklin. Your forward line is very thin.

Chookie

I'm thinking of going Big Steph as something a little different as Archie wasn't named. Is this a sane move??

Kev

Archie won't play reserves all year. Stef struggles with him in the team. Long term it's not a great move

Jeremy Lyne

Feeling pretty bloody pleased with my VC loophole in Pendles and the 120 from Bont. Season's off to a good start so far. Still yet to see how some of my midprice risks pay off so fingers crossed for Roughy, Steele and JOM to smash out a good score.

correy

will sloane play or get him out b4 todays games

Steve

Danger or Fyfe as captain

Cameron

Tough to pick Danger imo

Thommo88

Its like splitting hairs could defiantly go either way.

Youngy

Danger for me definitely, with the vc on Gawn

Randomcliche2

So now do we take Gawn's 128ish?

redgumwon

Was thinking the same and I think I'll take Gawns 128

Youngy

Yes i have taken his 128

Cameron

Current team:
Def: H Shaw, A Rance, H Hartlett, C Marchbank, C Hampton, A Otten, (M Hibberd, T Stewart)
Mids: P Dangerfield, G Ablett, J Kennedy, N Fyfe, D Beams J O'mera, D Swallow, S Powell-Pepper (O Florent, T Taranto, J Pickett)
Rucks: M Kreuzer, T Nankervis (B Preuss)
Fwds: N Riewoldt, L Franklin, S Higgins, J Roughead, J Steele, B Eddy (D Butler, J Simpkin)

Dylan

Interesting team, I've gone with Higgins too so I hope that can pay off. I like your Ablett and Kreuzer picks, they are great left field picks. A bit uncertain about Hartlett consistency wise and Steele being a JLT trap

Cameron

I think Hartlett uses the ball well when he is on but it is a risky pick. Backed my gut with Kreuzer. I think Ablett is too good at his best but whether he is at his best I guess we'll see

Soupi

I've pulled in Zac jones as D4 using cash in the bank, I feel he's a sneaky but got some little creeping doubts! some one tell me…good shout mate, so i feel good about it

Dylan

Is going KK and Higgins over Shaw and Roughy insane or ballsy? Only way to get Shaw and Roughy would involve changing Gawn to a Stefan Martin or below

Moustachio

Would have taken Shaw, Roughy and Stef over KK, Higgins and Gawn any day of the week

CJay

What are people doing with Ed Vickers-Willis ?
Keeping on the bench and hope he gets a game soon or trading out to a R1 player.
I have traded out and moved Hibberd from Mid to Def and traded in Mountford to Mid.
Move doesn't sit well with me though,

Dylan

If you don’t have Barrett or Parfitt try to move them in or get a Joel Smith kind of player in defence and move Hibberd back into the midfield

Thommo88

I would personally get rid of EVW.

I personally like all rookies to be playing(other then floatong donut if you play that way).

Allowing for correction trades on missed rookies prior to price changes if required.

Jippa

Is Andy Otten a must have or na?

Thommo88

I wouldn't say a must have as he has his risks

Job security is the major concern here can he hold on long enough to beef up in price before we send him to the slaughter house.

I currently have him.

Tttt

Need help guys:
Already have guthrie at d8 so that's a donut there
Currently have Cameron at f8 and strndica at r3
Do I trade Cameron to pruess?
Only thing I'm worried about is losing that loop with my rucks as I have nankervis forward

BrownlowBoy

Anyone know anything on the young bloke from the Dees?

Dookie

Have we poked the Pendle-bear-y by thinking that Treloar will surpass him? I'm still crying that I doubted King Scott and went Prince Adam in his place.
Pendles was majestic last night

Sublime

Tobias Greene or Buddy?????

INPieman

Buddy

Dutch

Buddy

Danny

Do I trade Hanners to Ablett?

ryan

no. ablett may do well, but very injury prone.
i would take him on all year

Thommo88

History shows he can score go with your gut on who you think will give you the best output.

I will be monitoring little Gaz and considering Post bye

Ryan

FWD ROOKIES
Houston or Hannan?

DEF ROOKIES
Smith or Stewart?

Who do i pick?

Dylan

Houston and Smith

ryan

okay.
but why?

Youngy

Better JS

David C

Hannan's js is looking pretty good now

Marvin

Patch or Lek posted some info on why Hannan over Houston. Looks like got some decent js

Thommo88

Have 90k left as I changed from Grundy/Crouch to Gawn/JOM team is settled.

Although is it worth considering changing Lynch to JJK or Roo with the extra coin from last nights change?

Tim

Yes. Lynch is a gun and a good POD, but he has the early bye. Prime upgrade target after that.

Youngy

Good change Crouch bad pick in my opinion. I would keep the cash for a rainy day

Shake n bake

Sidebottom 35 touches Bont 22,SB 17 kicks Bont 8, 2 goals each SB 4 marks Bont 3, SB 3 tackles Bont 4, SB 80% efficiency Bont 72%, SB 117 sc pts Bont 120!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tim

Channel 7 commentary team doing the points last night.

Noirlust

How many of those goals went through bonts hands last night. The most SC friendly player this year

Seb

Hannan or Houston doing my head in

Defying

Laird or Shaw

Youngy

Shaw

Jason

Are all leagues autofilled yet! Say i wanted to join a league today would i be able to! And will the fixtures work out

Youngy

leagues are auto filled after this round i believe

Jason

So i can still join leagues and Thanks for your quick response Youngy gl with your SC year

Youngy

Yes u can, Cheers

Defying

Swallow or Omeara

Youngy

Swallow

Youngy

maybe not now haha

Thommo88

Depends on your structure both will perform in my opinion if playing.

JOM will be right amongst it for Hawthorn who don't have a huge amount of depth on the other hand GC may have more roations through the middle.

Reileys 22

Should I go with Toby Greene or roo

ryan

roo.
consistent, not injury prone, gun

Youngy

Roo concerned about lids addition to team in coming weeks

Nicholas

Here is my team wondering if I should make some swaps to utilize my 270k in the bank

Wondering if upgrading taranto/mccarthy to a cheap premo or a midpricer like steele/ roughy is worth it.
Also got to choose between swallow and omeara and laird/shaw.

defence
adams, rance, laird, marchbank, hampton, otten (hibberd, stewart)

mid
danger, jpk, treloar, fyfe, tmitch, beams, swallow, spp (barett, picket, parfitt)

rucks
sandilands, witts (strnadica)

forwards
dahl, macrae, higgins, nank, taranto, mcarth (housten, eddy)

Youngy

Shaw over Laird for me and keep the cash for a rainy day

Nicholas

Yeh that's what I was thinking. Thanks

mycotchinrules

Thoughts on JJK??

Thommo88

Solid pick best overall forward scorer last year will have his quiet games

Stompers

who do you recon will score more?

Joel Smith or T Stewart

ryan

stewart has better job security. melbourne have about 8 players to return in the next month, roos have 1 in the defence

Hutta

Stewart plays for geelong

Helpme

Otten, Stewart or hibberd on the field in the backline?

Affa's Mob

Otten

Affa's Mob

Selwood v T Mitchell???

Youngy

Selwood

Dutch

Selwood also

The BONT

Hibberd or Barret or Pafeit on ground

Matt

J Johansson vs Taylor Adams???

Kev

JJ

Lincoln

Lynch vs Buddy

Dutch

I have Buddy but will end up with both – personal preference

Lincoln

Yeah ill have both…maybe bud as he'll def go 95+..lynch unknown

Joshua farrugia

im hoping Taranto scores similar to Dan Butler so i don't fell the brunt of not playing the kid on field too much

Dr Trade

Taranto or Hannan ? please advise!

Dutch

Taranto every day

John James

Just going on price, Hannan

Rivo

Often, Smith or Stewart as D6?

Gawn VC into Danger C?

what the ruck

Gday Jock and community. My season is hanging by a thread! I traded out Marchbank & Adams pre game. I feel i need to take a risk now. Welcome to F6 Mitch Hannan…..aka the saviour

Rudigah

Wow that went well your back

Marcus

Take Bonts 120 as captain?

daniel

Who else do you have to come?
If Danger / Fyfe, I would probably roll the dice but otherwise, probably take it.

Chris

Hickey or Big Stef?

hedski

Stef

David

Is horlin smith worth a shot over swallow or o'meara with gurthrie, menengola and thurlow out?

Kev

This week: Yes. Rest of the year: No

Noirlust

Horlin smith with hold his spot this year. Others will make way

Randomcliche2

Good pod. Swallow late out. Teams everywhere in disarray!
