Supercoach RD2: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on

Supercoach round 2 cheat sheet

G’DAY COMMUNITY!

The weekly SuperCoach Cheat Sheet is back!
We’ve deployed a new and very attractive looking document that should look pretty whiz-bang on your mobile devices.
We don’t have a whole lot of Supercoach news to discuss this week due to the fact that players will not be changing in price and their Round 1 scores will be falling out of their rolling average. My advice is to avoid that trade button at all costs. Have a walk outside, paint your house, visit your favourite..ahem…websites. Whatever you can do to keep those hands busy and off the trade button.
Also make sure you check out the SuperCoach ‘Who Should I Start’ tool over at our great supporters Fantasy Insider, this mob are the home of the most mind bendingly advanced selection tools in the nation so give them a crack!

Best of luck community, Lekdog.

UPDATE: Nick Riewoldt said on The Footy Show that he could be out for 6 weeks. TRADE!

Krups

Nice design bloke and looks awesome on the mobile

Alex

What do people see these following players average

I.smith
J. Steele
T. Miller

Alex

T.miller= 92-95 average
Steele= 90-92
Smith= 84-86

That's just my opinion, T.miller looks like to be a dominant player for GC and Steele looks like good quality also, I'm not to keen on smith there's better value for money else where

Randomcliche2

Smith could benefit from Hill's departure, team mates wanting that outside running will got smith first, hartung a distant second…I see a lot of upside, but not enough to make my team, like you say, better bang for buck out there.

Miller, not sure
Steele 93ish
Smith 90ish

Danners

I.Smith: 80-85
J.Steele: 80-90
T.Miller: 80-85
Bottom two could be anything this season

Luke

^^^^
Yeah I'd also like some thoughts on Jack Steele and Miller

Pom

Odds on people trading N. Riewoldt to JJK who then puts up a 50 this week?

SCaddict

It's always the risk with sideways trading albeit in this case as a result of injury. JJK did go huge against the Saints last season so perhaps he can back it up but it can be difficult to predict with roller coaster KPPs.

Liam

That's why I only trade these KPPs when they have had a fall in price, this is why i'm torn on what to do with Roo.

I can trade Roo to anyone, any suggestions SCA.

SCaddict

Look I'm a midpriced advocate this season so like the Higgins / Steele / Nank / Miller / Wingard options. That way you can use the savings to patch up another hole you might have elsewhere in your team.

But if you're not interested in going down that road then Macrae (assuming you already have Dahl) would be my pick of $500K plus guys as his week to week output should be fairly consistent at least compared to say a JJK or Lynch type. However some folks just love it when their big key forward kicks a bag every blue moon so it really comes down to each coach's individual preferences.

INPieman

The gods are well known for doing those things to coaches

Derek

you have to ask yourself, "Why didn't i have JJK in the first place?"

hedski

Because of the propensity to throw turds in. (Will probs get him cheap)

Webspyda

Not this year!! Maybe in 2018…….

INPieman

Nice one Lek. Looks good on Desktop & mobile. Oh boy did I like the look of Hannan. I was watching him thinking I might bring him in this week. But it's best to have another look as tempting as it is

Stirlsy

I see Fatso went great in a practice match Pieman.

INPieman

I wrote a piece on him for a good reason. He's a freak. If they can get him fit… look out

Captain Risky

I was hoping he might have fallen through to the tiges in the draft! will be an excitement machine!

INPieman

The Tigers expected no one to have the balls to pick him & could grab him as a category B rookie. Wasn't how it panned out. They might regret it if he gets fit. He's amazing to watch

Stirlsy

The ANZAC dream is still alive for him.

INPieman

Anazac day is about when I think Buckley will realise he's in big trouble & call him up

LetsGo

Buckley said in an interview with the press that Kirby was showing good signs but was still getting used to the fitness required for afl and that he was a long way off

Stirlsy

Great work Lek … Yes Hannan looked good, I'v got a bit to fix leaving Marchbank out, and his looking like a must have down back early so ill be waiting on teams thursday night b4 i move on anything but think ill be making 1 move this week to help me get Marchbank in next week.
A 2182 last week with plenty of crap from 6 on field rookies all 50 or under, taking a gamble putting the VC on JJK pulled me out of a hole.

Derek

Butler and Hannan are both rays of sunlight and proof that the rookies will emerge.

Like Oxley & McIntosh, Tippa & Dea, Kracker & Lambert, Terlich & Goodes, Magner & Ellis……. The Gods will provide as they always have.

We just need to be patient and look for the signs……

Webspyda

LOL Butler was good against Carlton…….ROFLMFAO
Yeah get him in now. Possible good score against the wobbles but will fail against good sides.

Derek

Exactly. Have you had a look at richmonds next 4 opponents. Only need 5 weeks of good scores to make a heap of cash. But I guess you won't be doing that because you won't have him. Oh well.

INPieman

Good news for Grundy owners. Cox has been axed

SCaddict

JR Brumby FC will be ecstatic with this development indeed!

INPieman

Jock will be licking his chops over that news

Jock

YES!

SCaddict

Bye bye American Pie!

Pete

Need to trade out Smith and want to get McGrath but don't have enough cash so thinking of going Hannebery to Heppell. I know I could wait another week but I might want to fix my forward rookies then with Hannan and WHE before their price goes up.

Randomcliche2

Review the cheat sheet

Pete

Shame we don't get upto 4 trades next week. Heppell averaged 105 in 2014 and 2015 is only 24, the new captain, and over $100k less. Could easily go to the next level of premium and out score Hannebery who doesn't look fit. Wish I knew all this stuff last week.
Other option is Taranto to Hannan this week rather then next but neither have prior history other than one game to judge on.
Or just sit and wait and suck it up if I was right.

Webspyda

That would make it tooooo easy.
Unless you have a very good side now it would be prudent to identify the probable value mid pricers/rookies and trade
otherwise your short of options next week and $$$$ behind the ball.
Trading could be a mistake…. NOT trading could cost you as much or more.

Danners

Great work Lek, starting to lean towards Hannan over Butler, seems like Melbourne a keen on him if they're playing him without him playing any JLT series games

hedski

Have trialled a few rookie corrections for after round 2 and looks good, depending on team selections I'm thinking it might be OK to jump the gun and do 1 this week in case there is some Roo/Smith/etc carnage next week (and there will be).
I'm pretty sure if I went early the traded in rook would be part of the chaos cos hey, sc gods?
Thanks Lekdog easier to read on the phone and great as always, cheers.

INPieman

I have had many similar thoughts Hedski. What is there is some carnage that doesn't allow the rookie correctives next week. There is no right or wrong answer right now. Go with your gut

hedski

Looks good how i've got it set, but yeah 6.30 tomorrow night will sort it out Pie.

Alex

Who do I trade Nick Roo too? I'm going for rank so surely I trade here?

Robbo

Sounds like you need Fantasy insider. follow the link above

Derek

Dahlhaus is a good option

Robbo

Gotta laugh at the fantasy insider plug. $200 a year and everybody who signs up gets exactly the same info e.g. their computer picks your team for you and tells you who to bench who to trade out/in and who to put the C on. Looks like a great deal for those coaches who know nothing about footy or how to research but I suppose all of them will be given the same team and same trade advice throughout the year so if one of them wins a round prize they'll be sharing it with every other duffa and end up with $10. Have to win 20 rounds to get your money back. No thanks Lekdog

hedski

Hey Robbo while I agree about not paying for a fantasy picker (prefer gut instinct and minimal research), can't fault the plug, these guys are sponsoring the site and the awesome CK play at home (don't have a venue nearby).
No one is made to sign up, hope ur team does well mate.

Robbo

Good one Hedski. So what if they are making buckets of cash from selling advertising and are receiving benefits/income from foxtel, HSun etc due to the high number of visitors to this site. They need that money so that they can pay Barron and all the other contributors who provide info and give us a reason to be here, one podcast a week wont make people come her everyday.
It's the same with channel 7 and the Supercoach site they bombard every spare cm of screen space with gambling ads and rake in the dollars but they have to pay reporters and developers etc.
I'm just a wary after the moneyball debacle that saw me a many others sign up and pay this site for stuff only to see the site shut down a couple of weeks later, not refund any money, and then open again when they had their own copy of moneyball

hedski

Fair enough Robbo, once bitten twice shy, understandable. Cheers.

josh

I have decided i need to trade snt nick as i feel like he will be out for at least the two weeks and then maybe some reduced game time, or at least reduced time on the wing, in the few weeks following.

I then went roo > kennedy and Taranto > butler, who i think looked very comfortable at the level and had a lecras like look to his game not to mention the 100k $ difference.

However this afternoon i hit the reverse button and am contemplating this trade; roo > t.Miller and Taranto > Z.Jones (by moving parfit fwd and gibbered to mid). Few factors that led to such madness. kennedy plays hawthorn and faces Rance in the next few rounds, both of which his stats against are not that great (also average stats in almost every WCE loss). If he doesn't smash out another 170 for the next few weeks his price rise would be significantly less then the total rise of Miller and Jones. If either of Jones or miller become a top 8 mid/def then i haven't hindered my progress to full premium and if they both get there then i have enhanced my position and saved money and trades.

Dead set on moving roo on just wondering communities thoughts on the two options above, cheers

josh

this would leave my FWD/DEF looking

LAIRD / SHAW / SIMPSON / JONES / MARCHBANK / HAMPTON

DAHL / HIGGINS / STEELE / MILLER / BUTLER / HOUSTON

Webspyda

Yes the trade to Butler is fraught with danger
Like your logic.
You do have to trade!
Reminds me of a song…..
" Trading,…. It's not a dirty word.."

INPieman

Roo & TT to Miller & Jones aye. Unless Jones & Miller are keepers there goes 4 trades. 26 left Josh. Reconsider. At least give TT another week

josh

Yeah exactly my concern, i guess was just been hopeful and that if one fails I'm only down 2 trades and possibly only 1 as one mid pricer and two fattened rookies may make 2 premos instead of the typical one up one down. just not comfortable with with any other FWDs atm. sense will likely prevail and i'll probably just sideways roo to kennedy who would've been in my team in the first pace had i have not gone with riewoldt.

INPieman

Personally with your forward line & if I was side swapping Roo I'd go MacRae. Plays in the midfield & has DPP & a solid history. And far more likely to be a premo keeper then Miller. I do rate Miller but I don't rate GC. Losing at home to the Lions to me screams don't pick an unproven mid pricer from GC

Sam_01

Posted a similar enquiry about mr touk, Hanley back to Ireland on personal business think touk will be slotted into their engine room and with witts being a bit more of a competitive ruck for them this year I have high hopes for him! That said he has that dodgy round 9 bye you have to cop! For me I think I'm sold on jjk will Finnish top 6 and west coast look good this year watch him kick another bag against the sainters this week, plus they have a fair few home games coming up leading up to byes! Ill probably be looking at lynch and miller post bye

Otis

Dan Hannebery goes & Riewoldt stays for me amid a new SC Rule called the Dan Hannebery rule. And he also joins the never again list. Don't let the door hit you on the way out!
Here's a thought, go buy yourself a slab of beer, a bottle of Jack and get drunk. Clearly it's not working….disgrace

Steeeve

Yeah great move helps the rest of us climb the rankings

Webspyda

Yes don't trade for value, like some of us…. go sideways…. keep your dud rookies
pleeeeeease………

TRIGGER HAPPY

For what its worth straight from the horses mouth.
Roo on footy show: I was lucky thought career might be over but not as bad as I thought at this stage estimate I will be out for at least 2 up to 6 weeks depends how I recover.
Make of that what u will but sounds like minimum 3-4.

INPieman

Too much money on the bench for anything over 2 & up to 6. That's a forced trade for mine. At least he scored a ton before he did it

BrownlowBoy

Who is everyone Vice Captaining and Captaining this week?

Lazza

Mind your own business πŸ™‚

Borko

Pendles -> Danger will be popular

Randomcliche2

Perhaps my potential Roo cull result….. Treloar.

Kyle

Vc rocky C danger

Truthsayer

This

Daniel

Was going to go Pendles to Danger.
Thinking a bit more left field, maybe Shaw to Danger.
He is playing against GC and is a bit of a flat-track bully.

Borko

Started with a pretty solid GnR structure:
Premo x 10
Value Premos x 3
Mids x 2
Elevated Rookie x 4
Rookies x 10
Donut x 1

I am hoping for 11 keepers from this squad … then it's 22 trades (11 up and downs) plus correctives to full premo.

Given our rookie concerns, I am worried about cash generation to get these trades done … have been considering sacrificing a 'value premo' (eg. Grundy -> Witts) to get the cash to upgrade two rookies next week … maybe to a mid pricer and elevated rookie?

Basically, realigning my team more toward a mid price structure … the price is loss of a possible keeper. Anyone else thinking along these lines? Or should we just hold on and make the best of it next week?

SCaddict

Most seasons I'd say you're crazy to scrap a keeper to free up some cash but this is looking to be quite an usual year so all avenues of cash generation need to be considered. Witts appears to be shaping up as one of the best cows at least in terms of the Week 1 rookies.

But I still think you could only justify such a move if the keeper you were sacrificing was grossly underperforming and I don't think Grundy qualifies there, especially now that Cox has been given the flick so Grundy will now be operating as a lone wolf ruckman. So sadly I think you will just have to skip Witts and move on.

Borko

Yeah … I think I will hold based on selections and also that there is some doubt on Goldsteins ability to be a top 2 ruck this year … opens the door for Grundy to take that spot behind gawn. Plus I should have some more options next week to grab at least one of WHE or McGrath if they back it up.

Jeez Round 2 messes with your mind!

hedski

Speaking of crazy SCA, BigGAbonza is an avacado of my Gawn/Danger cull theory, 3 weeks to bang!!!!
Hope he's baitin, good luck if not.

SCaddict

Is that right hedski ha ha?!

Webspyda

Yeah don't fix your side now…….
You'll be able to do it next week won't you………….

SCaddict

Well at least that now removes any uncertainty from the equation.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Thanks Lek. :()

Brandon

Jy Simpkin very underwhelming and now thinking will be starved of oppurtunties playing forward for north. Was hoping he'd play up the ground a little more but not much to like from the one game… although it is only one game does anyone think it's worth some dpp swings to trade him for McGrath? Only reason to pull the trigger this week is I don't have hannan/whe/Houston and if 2 of those perform this week it'll be hard to ignore them.. so anyone think it's a worthwhile trade or nah? Cheers

NoLanguage

Hold. Simpkin will play all year at North and if he stays fit could surprise – heaps of pace and flair

Derek

he is a future star. he will be given every chance this year. you are right though, hard work getting a kick in the Norf forward line this year.

Brandon

Thanks fellas will probably hold just wanted some opinions, hopefully he can snag a couple goals and get above 50! Haha

jpb69

Can someone explain the VC loophole ?

SCaddict

Check this video out as it's most easily explained visually:

Robbo

2349 Spyda but I use fantasy insider so there'll be about 1,000 of us with that projection

JEL

Thinking Nick for Buddy this week.

Adds a little cash to the kitty for next week's rookie fixup

Finnius123

I have swung nank forward and picked gawn in the ruck. Taranto down to hannan for the cash

Harvey

Same here.

INPieman

Effectively turning Roo into Gawn is a great idea

JEL

Running with Hickilands in the Ruck and have Nank already fwd.
Want to wait and see how they and my Def rookies pan out before upgrading them.

Definitely like the idea of Premo for Premo swap, & Buddy was on my short list for possible targets.
Other options Fwd are McCrae or T Lynch

BundyBear

Whats the thoughts on Zach Merrett ?

Derek

if you didn't start with him, you need to wait for him to fall in price

Finnius123

He is a gun though

Derek

agree. But to succeed this year we are going to have to be good at shopping, look for the bargains (i need my wife to help me here). Building our cash reserves will be hard this year because of the poor rookie crop, therefore we need to be careful with spending it. Fallen premiums will be on my shopping list.

INPieman

I agree. If week one was anything to go by most of them will slow burn perhaps 100k. This makes picking off value vital

Finnius123

is gawn injured???

INPieman

Coach says he has a bit of a sore back. Been on light duties all week but he will line up

Finnius123

Ok cool. Do you think he will still perform?

INPieman

Against Carlton I'd have the captain on him if I had him

Youngy

Back soreness, He should be good to go

Finnius123

Hectic. Brought him in for roo. With the amount of rookie trades I am going to have to make next week (probably more than 2), it makes sense to bring in Hannan for Taranto to free up the cash. I don't like any of the other forward options and was running nankilands w/o sandi cover, so it now makes sense to correct that by picking big maxy

SCaddict

He's now been cleared to play:

Tony

Yep won't be playing this week spencer has got the call up my mate is his mate from school

Finnius123

Just got called up to play…. Stop talking s"%$ mate

Truthsayer

Fell on wrist at training, late out for sure.

Finnius123

I have swung nank forward and picked gawn in the ruck. Taranto down to hannan for the cash. Thoughts?

Neil Demons Delight

With Rampe out Marsh is on the radar .How that affects Jones and Lloyd is most relevant.. Berry is getting closer and could be a better choice than McGrath .Interesting to see how he goes up north in the wet

Youngy

THE CHEAT SHEET IS BACK! Thanks Lek.

No trades for me this week, even if Swallow doesn't play I'll still hold him.

top hawk

Will David Swallow play, or will he not……..I am praying that he does. Got Riewoldt and Joel bloody Smith. If he does play, then I will probably leave the trade button alone. If he does not, then I will be forced to make that corrective/forced/strategic trade.(Call it what you like) The million dollar question if I do pull the trade trigger is who to trade in for Riewoldt. Do I play the conservative card and simply switch for another premo (JJK or Macrea) or do I get aggressive and take a calculated risk and start my rookie fix up NOW. Obviously, it is always best to wait to decide on rookie selections until the completion of round 2. However, when you have serious potential rookie liabilities (Little ars-hole Pickett, M Hibberd, etc) then being slightly ahead of the curve with rookie adjustments might bear some good dividends. Out of all the forward rookies which gives me the most confidence to go a week early is- WILL HOSKIN ELLIOT. I am very confident that he is a genuine cash cow and will continue to produce decent scores (70's +) in the coming months.

If Swallow does not play, I am seriously considering trading out Riewoldt for WHE. Then next week it will be BANG BANG! Two more rookie adjustments with plenty of cash in the bank to play with. Any rookie (even a few midpricers) are then within my grasp based on this weeks performances. (Eg Harrison Marsh, Zak Jones, Troy Menzel, Jarrod Witts etc). Hopefully this plan will stabilize and settle my rookie set up going into round 3. Let me know your thoughts on my little strategy. Cheers

INPieman

NRoo to WHE hmmmmmm I have a feeling you will look back & regret that. The idea of the game is to increase your number of premiums & get to full premium as quickly as possible. Anyway by the sounds of things Swallow will play

top hawk

Thanks mate. Very valid point. Hope your intel about Swallow playing is correct. Will make my life a lot easier trade wise this week. Do nothing unless dramas unfold during the round.

SCaddict

NRoo does need to go this week though, unless you are one of the fortunate few who have nailed all their rookies. Otherwise there is a good chance you will need to make at least two corrections next week and you don't want to have to blow one of those on a player that you already know needs to be traded.

With the apparent lack of decent cash generating rookies you certainly want to be on the few good ones by time Rd3 gets underway. I think there is a very good chance that WHE will prove to be one of those but if he spuds tonight we might have to dial that back. So the safest thing is to swap Roo with another premo right now or perhaps even a midpricer on the rise that you have some confidence in whether it be a Nank / Steele / Wingard / Miller / Higgins etc.

Then you could use those savings to maybe jump on a couple of the promising $200k rookies like WHE or Marchbank (if you don't already have him) next week. I realise you could hold NRoo and then directly downgrade to a rookie next week but taking that points hit in Rd2 is probably unnecessary in my view.

Jono

Nroo to Steele? Already have Dahl and Buddy

INPieman

If I was thinking of going NRoo to Steele I'd wait another week

top hawk

Wait another week. Just to make sure of it. A week is a long time in footy. Steele spuds up in the West, and then good news on the Riewoldt injury front. His knee problem is progressing better than first thought. Could be back in two weeks!……It happens all the time.

Derek

JackR said on 360 that if anyone could come back sooner rather than later after a knee injury it would be NRoo. Has played with knee pain for a long time, almost used to it. You never know, could be 2 weeks, but i would trade if i had him.

Liam

With everyone going mid price heavy and packining about the rookies, I've decided to stick to my guns and rookies structure.

This is my 'shark move' if you would even call it that.

I'm hoping popular mid price picks like Steele and Nank slow down an average 85ish and end up 450k not being a keeper or making significant cash.

Trades will be important this year more than ever, so I'm
not gonna waste them on mid pricers that I think will end up in "no mans land".

I wish everyone luck and I would love to her your thoughts.

Cheers Liam.

INPieman

The lack of quality rookies has forced everyone's hand into mid pricers. I think if you go a straight guns & rookies approach your going to be in trouble. The Cash generation doesn't look great at all

Neil Demons Delight

The problem there PIES is to get mids you have to cull a premium that means another premium to get and 2 trades unless your selected mids become keepers OLIVER MURPHY BEAMS to name 3

Liam

100% agree Neil not worth it.

Liam

They only need one big score out of them to get good cash generation.

Neil Demons Delight

Trades are going to be important but so is getting the right rookies.and there may be lots to get.. IF we are confident about certain rookies then I would go early so we get the four early at the cheap .price . Already we can identify Hannan and McGrath as being quality rooks with a fair bit of optimism. I AM SURE WEEK 3 another couple of must haves will appear .Its a matter of anticipated judgement and luck. A few top 100 players in this forum have voiced this opinion given the year we have been dished up so far

Liam

Hannan is the only one standing out to me atm that I don't have. Will trade him in next week.

Derek

i think the rookies might have been shell-shocked a bit first round. it was a fast running week, high scoring in good conditions. might have caught a few of them off guard as to the pace of the game. hopefully they will come out better this week.

Neil Demons Delight

does that mean the bunnies are unchanged.More than most you were dealt a bad hand.You said you were going to be aggressive in early trading to cull rookies early Round 2 too early or do you need a bigger picture Derek Cheers

Derek

i think it is my first rule, Get the right rookies.

I have Smith in Defense who will have to go. I don't need a loophole, as i started the season with Berry on my bench for that.

Don't have Otten, but i doubt his JS. Didn't see melb game so i don't know about Hannan (always like to see for myself with a rookie, thats why i really rate Simpkin).

I'll probably hold on trading out Smith for one more week to see if hannan named Round 3. Smith was on bench anyhow and i also have Stewart on bench if needed.

Shake n bake

Newman to be named this week.

Liam

I agree Derek. Some showed so signs of scoring. The rookies will apear.

The Ranger

I hope you're right Liam 'cos if not my season is buggered!
I've tried running midpricer teams before and never managed to get to the magic 13mil number early enough if at all.
Early days tho, hard to get a read on it at this stage.

Randomcliche2

I've run mid priced madness for many years. It's bloody difficult and highly variable. GnR beats it every time a rookie who you don't/can't pick scores the same at your mid pricer. Running Midpriced madness can lead you to the vegi patch to make a salad.

Liam

Guns and rookies will still be better this year imo. My team is purely guns and rookies so my season also depends on it.

Truthsayer

It's not really a shark move.

Liam

Yes I know, but a lot less common this year than the previous years.

Truthsayer

Agree you shouldn't trade them in, you should already have the good ones.

Liam

You must be an amazing SCer if you can pick all the right players.

Andy Bull

How do I go about finding the link to the Jock Reynolds Supercoach Group – assuming there is one?

Cheers, AB

Youngy
Andy Bull

Thanks

Kyle

Forward line CURRENT
Dahl, Roo, Roughy, Nank, Butler, Houston, Eddy, Pickett. $69k

IS trading Roo for Steele a good move??

Thoughts appreciated.

Derek

i would prefer trading one keeper for another keeper. getting to full premium asap is the name of the game.

ask yourself why you didn't have Steele in the first place and what has changed in 1 week?

Kyle

That's what i'm thinking. I'm not keen on any of the key-forwards as they're too inconsistent. Straight swap for Macrae?

Liam

100%

Astro

Anyone who trades now (unless there's an injury) is already out of the competition. No trades till bye…stick to your guns!

Finnius123

Big statement mate. I'm not sure abou that….. Early trading could really work this year, just depends on what trades you are doing

Neil Demons Delight

Just cant see the wisdom in keeping mistakes and to byes wow

INPieman

I disagree Astro. Trade when it's appropriate to do us

Truthsayer

Exactly

Rick Grimes

You might have trades left but you'll be raked out of contention. Past winners have made corrective trades early, it's part of the game. As long as there's a plan behind them, rather than chasing last week's points, it's a legit strategy. Getting the right rookies is worth 2-3 trades, easy.

The Ranger

Someone posted this trading strategy a couple of years back and I've used it as a rough basis ever since.
Two correctives (R3);
Five up and downs (R5-11);
Triple downgrade (R12-13);
Triple upgrade (R14);

Truthsayer

There's no system that is going to work every year, just adapt.

Truthsayer

Anyone who can't use their brain to use their trades appropriately for their individual team are out of the competition.

Shake n bake

Does anybody know what the weather is supposed to be like gor the gws suns game?

INPieman

Partly cloudy & 22 with 64% humidity. No rain forecast

Shake n bake

Tnx Pieman

Derek

It's dumping down now, but should clear by tommorrow. Will still be wet in ground.

Beezneez

weatherzone.com.au and enter the postcode.

Truthsayer

Use the freakin internet?

Howie

So to settle the NROO debate for me thoughts for who i should bring in: JJK, Buddy or Macrae?
My thoughts are JJK although i have never had him in one of my teams before and although Macrae is probably the safest bet i like West Coast this year and he also has the lowest ownership from the 3, again realise this should not be a basis for a decision all input would be much appreciated.

Derek

I started with McCrae. Didn't see anything that would change my mind. Guenuine midfilder with FWD status usually gold for SC.

He scored 115DT on weekend means he touched the ball plenty of times, just needs to do more with it to score good SC pts.

Howie

Reckon McCrae's price will go up much more i still want him in at some stage or will JJK's price dip and be a better target down the track.
More crucial than any season to get players at the right price with our rubbish rookies.

Borko

Here's an idea … sit back and watch the rookies thurs, fri, sat and sun early game … most of them play in that time. If all goes well, do nothing.

If they spud it up and we need cash for next week to grab best expensive rookies, then maybe trade fyfe down to oliver.

Will cost 2 trades (1 to do it and 1 to upgrade oliver to a premium … I think he can get to $500k for a straight swap for a fallen premium around the byes). Then can replace two dud rookies with two good options … prob about same point gen too.

Crazy ideas for crazy times?

Liam

Fyfe will average 120, Oliver 95.

That's a loss of 25pts per game and 2 trades.

Will the money you use improve your scoring enough to warrant doing this trade. Probably not.

Rookie is important but don't sacrifice points and premos for it.

Truthsayer

Waste of time, should've kept money if you wanted to do repairs.

Trade Treloar and keep Fyfe

Finnius

Seriously hope not

Northerner

Please. Somebody explain to me how Aish scores higher than Howe. Also Treloar was a star tonight and he gets the ball forward, often on the bounce to a team mate which he obviously scores nothing for. If this continues we might as well all just play Fanasy where possies count regardless of merit. Losing faith.

Northerner

I think they have to start posting the names of the stats crew monitoring each game. Clearly there are those that certain reviewers favour over others. At least we'd have a better chance of picking our captain with certainty of who is monitoring.

Mich

Aish – 64, Howe – 89. Treloar went 65% efficiency with mostly uncontested possessions
I really doubt there's a conspiracy going on honesty, north, just shitty kicking

Northerner

Thanks Mich. The scores recalibrated a few minutes after the game on the Herald Sun website and went green on the SC app as final with Howe on 61 and Treloar on 81. I have awoken and the universe has righted itself.

Northerner

I've got one for the SuperCoach powers that be. Let us have 3 trades after round 2!!
