Round 2 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on

SuperCoach Panic Room

Community, welcome back to The Panic Room.

Not to toot our own horns, but we had over 1100 comments last week, which was HUGE.

We had a big old panic, and now we get to do it all again a week later.

Today’s panic room comes post-Thursday Night Footy, which is absolutely awful to deal with from a Supercoach perspective, but is a bloody ripper for CoachKings. On the bright side, we’ve seen both Carlton and Collingwood lose Thursday night footy, so that’s at least brought some solace to the idea.

But I digress – we’re here to panic.

THE NEWS

We’ll get the good news out the way: David Swallow is back after being a late withdrawal last week, and Jake Lever will have another week before coming into the Adelaide lineup.

Pretty much everything else is bad news.

THE LATE, EDITED NEWS: is around Sunday Rookies: North Melbourne have decided new blood isn’t for them, and as such have dropped Mitch HibberdBrayden Pruess and Declan Mountford. The Cats have held faith with Brandon Parfitt, and Melbourne have similarly hung onto Mitch HannanJake Spencer is an emergency.

Nick Riewoldt is gone for a minimum of two weeks, up to a potential six with his knee. He’s gotta go – my pick would be Buddy, as we’ve already largely missed the JJK boat in my opinion.

Luke Hodge returns for the Hawthorn Footy Club, with them axing a troop of second and third year players for younger players, including the uncapped Teia Miles.

Speaking of debutants, Sydney are blooding three of them, with JLT prodigy Nic Newman (123k def), Robbie Fox (102k mid) and Will Hayward (121k fwd) all donning their guernseys for the first time tonight. Don’t trade any of these blokes in until we have a gander at them.

Sadly, Pearce Hanley will spend the next little while in Ireland after his little brother Tommy passed away this week.

GWS have given wunderkid Tim Taranto another week to prove himself, but Matt Kennedy will play his 429th game in the NEAFL after again being dropped by the Giants. Jacob Hopper comes in.

However, once again we face the potential for Sunday carnage, with North Melbourne naming Pruess, Hibberd and Mountford on the extended bench for Sunday’s game. For the love of god, keep them off the field in case the worst happens. I’d like to think Pruess and Hibberd get another shot, but AFL Coaches rarely exist in the same world I do.

To add to that, Brandon Parfitt has also been named on the extended bench with some handy ins, and SO HAS MITCH HANNAN. I can’t see Hannan dropped, and if there is there will be stern words had with Simon Goodwin. Parfitt however… hmmmm. I’d hope not.

Bernie Vince has been suspended for a week, so will have to sit on the bench. And, as pointed out by Panic Room champion SC Addict in the comments, big Max Gawn has had a rough week, and there is the possibility for Jake Spencer to come into the side to give him a chop out. I’m not too worried, but as Addict pointed out, we’re here to panic, so panic we shall!

Port Adelaide are claiming “two possible debutants” for their Sunday match against Freo, with Joe Atley (117k mid) and William Drey (117k mid/fwd) named on the extended bench, but “possible” in my books is they won’t play. However, Jarman Impey has come into the side at the expense of popular rookie Brett Eddy.

For telling which rookies are the best to play, we’d normally fly into the Rookie Rumble – but, that won’t be appearing in The Panic Room this year as Barron von Crow, the rookie maestro, has it all covered (including BEAUTIFUL power rankings) in his Scouting Report!

CoachKings Round 2?

TRADING PLACES

The Stock Exchange, like the one from the classic* 1983 comedy, is not yet open – we are waiting for the report that shows rookies and cash generation – much like the Duke’s desired orange juice – will be low during the winter season. Next week we open for business and everyone throws money at everyone else and panics like no-one else’s business.

Until then, this week Trading Places is only here so I remember to include it next week, and so I get a practice run at writing Dan Akyroyd Akyroid (google pls help) Ayyykr-ohffs Aykroyd’s name. However, keep your eyes on Dan Hannebury, Robbie Gray, Patrick “Corn Boy” Cripps, Tom Hickey, Rory Sloane, Shaun Burgoyne and Matt Priddis, who will all have big price drops unless they come out with 120+ scores this week.

RUCKING HELL

The Panic Room’s newest member made her debut last week, and she’ll be back for at least the first part of the season, tracking which ruckmen are dealing well with season 2017 and which… are not. Now, this time last week, I was expecting most of these bars to be red, with Jake Spencer, Billy Longer, Archie Smith and any of Keegan Brooksby, Dan Currie and Tom Nicholls wreaking havoc on our ruck stocks.   Supercoach Rucks It looks to have been much ado about nothing, with everyone bar Hickey providing an… acceptable… start, and those who ran #NANKILANDS would be absolutely stocked, closely followed by those like yours truly who ran Gawn, Sandi and Nank.

And – as of last night – a Cox-less Grundy smashed it.

Considering how many of us have gone in with a mid-priced ruck, hopefully Rucking Hell lets us keep track of who we want to trade in and who we don’t.

VICE CAPTAIN McVICE-CAPTAINFACE

Paddy Dangerfield scored 229 last time he played North Melbourne. If you haven’t locked him in, I’m breaking into your house, logging on and locking him in for you. It’s for your own good.

Barron von Crow has again done the hard yards on who to put the VC on, but Geelong playing the first game on Sunday cuts down our options, and unless you really rate your trigger finger to make the call before the Port v Freo game at 4.40, we’re stuck with the previous games.

Thursday had a huge great big smorgasbord of VC options on offer, with Adam Treloar, Scott Pendlebury, Taylor Adams, Dusty Martin, The Nank and dead set jet Jesse White all on offer.

However, none of them really offered captain-worthy scores. I assume Adam Treloar has accidentally run over the dog of someone at Champion Data. Actually, based on last night, maybe replace the word “accidentally” with “repeatedly” and “dog” with “son”.

Lionel Hutts SuperCoach attorney

History suggests the Doggies and the Swans don’t have a huge amount of fantasy relevancy when they play, despite ripping contests each and every time. However, without Dale Morris or Joel Hamling, a sneaky Buddy Franklin VC might not go astray…

Saturday is where the meat of the round is: Adelaide’s Rory Laird started the season like a house on fire with 147, and is every chance of backing it up against a despondent Hawthorn lineup. Tom Mitchell played far better than his 117 on Saturday suggests, and I can see him going top 10 this year – if only I’d seen it two weeks ago and not now.

However, the big game for mine – although I’m a tad biased – is Essendon taking on Brisbane. Tom Rockliff loves tearing us apart, and Dyson Heppell looks very, very, VERY good. Dayne Zorko is also a sneaky option in the wet up there.

Also – JJK doesn’t need an introduction. He’s on the table against a one-dimensional Saints defence. Have a gander.

Let’s saunter on into round 2 with our heads held high, community. Back your selections, hold your trades, go play some CoachKings – and importantly, have a ripper weekend.

See you in the comments!

i love the panic room

Patch

the panic room loves you!

Chevy

With EDDY being dropped for a club suspension, do we hold or trade to HANNAN??

The Coach

Probably hold unless you have too many non-playing rookies

Patch

Depends on how many trades you expect you'll have to make next week – you'd think Eddy should come back into the side (he wasn't suspended, Impey is coming back from suspension, which nearly got me as well) at some stage, but when that stage will be is another question. Reckon it's not a bad move, Chevy

Emma

I would be holding Eddy he could easily come back into team next week

SCaddict

Just to be clear Chevy, Eddy wasn't actually suspended himself, instead he is making way for a player in Impey who had been serving a club imposed suspension last week.

In other words it appears Eddy's JS is very dodgy indeed if he can't even hold his spot in a winning side off the back of one quiet game on the road in slippery conditions that didn't suit key forwards. Looks like Hinkley will be ruthless/impatient on poor performers this season with his job on the line more so than it ever has. About bloody time I guess Kochie would say.

The Coach

WHE lock to bring back in. Question is, if O'Meara has a dud game should I trade him out and who would I bring in? Nank Engine? Steele? Decisions…

Patch

I would hold on Jaeger, Coach. Will warm into it and will be pumping 90s and 100s out before too long – only reason I'd chop him would be if you were desperate for cash, not to go sideways to another midpricer.

However, if you're not on the Nank train, you must get on ASAP, if not sooner

BrownlowBoy

This is one of the best articles of each week, always look forward to the Panic Room!

JPK into Danger for me.

Patch

Cheers Brownlow! Nice! Had that intiailly but decided to go with Treloar last night, so Danger it is!

Angry treloar

Treloar can't catch a break

Robbie T.

Why is Treloar getting such relatively low SC scores when he is getting so many disposals?

Patch

As much as I wish it was just Champion Data hating Treloar, Fantasy Freako tweeted this morning that Treloar's efficiency by foot is 55%, while Pendlebury is up around 80%. Treloar's not going to be able to break through 120 unless he hits some targets by foot

Shake n bake

Well last week 34 disposals at 72% and only 91!! What happened there??

Patch

I only wish I knew, Shake!

Tommo

I agree with you Shake. Something is definitely up with Treloar's scoring this season and plenty seem to be either throwing up a smoke screen arguments or just seeing the emperor's new clothes and hoping the integrity of the scoring system is correct. Treloar's DE wasn't great last year as well but he was putting up 130s and 140s on a fairly regular basis. Reckon he's still getting shortchanged 15-25ppg. Of course someone like Freako is going to cover his arse and try to explain it away but anyone with half a brain knows something is not right there.

Emma

I think its when he has the turnovers, in the last q against tigers he had two holding the balls so could have lost 20 pts alone from that. I would not panic his scoring can only improve imo. I have treloar as well.

Clokey

had 12 disp at 91% in 1st qrtr last night but only 15 SC. It's probably a Champion Data hate Rangas thing where every error that can't be clearly assigned is attributed to the ranga even when they're on the bench.
It's obviously bad for supercoaches who have him but, if it helps rid our society of those pasty skinned freckly freaks it's probably a good thing

The Weasel

Treloar is the master of dinky 1 metre handballs which run at 100% efficiency but are not point scorers. When he's made to kick it, he struggles to hit easy targets. There's a lot of junk in his disposal and opposition coaches let him run around by himself all night because of that.

Eskimo

I monitored Treloar last night. In one instance he did a sneaky little sideways kick on the run, that rolled along the ground away from surrounding Richmond players, into the hands of a fast running Collingwood player. As I watched the sc scores for him he got penalized for this. I thought I used to understand. Maybe they have outsourced the scoring to a overseas telemarketing company.

Josh

Understand the effect of disposial efficiency and clangers but when you compare his game to bonts 120… 10% less efficiency but 30% more disposals (and contested), more clearances, more marks and marks inside 50, more inside 50 entries and rebound 50s all for 30 less points. Just a tad heartbreaking when scores drop on your game day results

Otis

I'm a Treloar owner and watched the game and I think 108 is about right. Fact is, he had 2 tackles, which is deplorable for a midfielder in the modern game. I find it amusing how CD rated Collingwoods midfield the best when there is no way they work as hard defensively as a Bulldogs, Swans or Giants outfit. The difference last night was the pressure from Richmond was better. Unfortunately, football is a two way game even though people (including CD obviously) rate offensive much more important.

Tayles

Seriaye, were you watching the game last night, Treoar at half time best on ground by a mile. Yes he may of butchered a few, however when you have that many? Sidebottom last week, way more disposals, better efficiency, same amount of goals than the Bont and more SC points, come on!

Youngy

Great write up Patch. Sunday Bench has got me Panicing

Patch

Cheers Youngy! Well, you're in the right place!

Bells E Bubb

How can I make a call on Roo if 2-6 is the best guess! 3 and under is a hold.
Besides already got Buddy and JJK.

Youngy

Get rid of him, I'd say bring in Macrea or Dahlhouse.

Patch

Give him the flick, Bells. 2-6 is vague enough that I'm not going near it

If you're tempted by Steele, Rough, Nank or even (dare I say it) Higgins, you could jump on and make some cash? Otherwise Dahl should do you well

Kim

If going for overall rank no choice but to trade as I have, I went Steele as I hope he averages 90+ for rest of season and possible keeper and use cash elsewhere. Buddy would have been my other choice, but wanted the extra cash, hopefully get buddy after bye.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Love the patch up
want those Sunday benches to come good else at least 50% of my rookies will be missing.
Bit hard to generate rookie cash if they are not playing. On field should be ok but $ on bench a worry
If that is the case may have no choice but to go early with a trade
I reckon it should be ok – he says with fingers crossed behind his back.

INPieman

If Hibbo Jnr's 23 is anything to go by he'll be lucky to make his Break even!!!

Patch

Tossing and turning as well, Trig. We're all in a very similar boat!

Cliffy

Nice work again Patch!

How would you rate JPK as a potential VC tonight mate? Looks the path I'm going this week followed by Danger C if he doesn't fire tonight JPK.

Patch

Love the man – don't think he'll reach last week's effort but should hit a solid 125. I was going for him until I pulled the trigger on Treloar, much to my regret! Lock it in, Cliffy!

Kim

Fyfe averages 145+ at Adelaide oval so I am going danger into Fyfe

Jimmy

So I have Powell-Pepper and Houston on my bench, with Taranto and Cam McCarthy on field. Definitely want to take a chance on one, as I fancy after an average first game Taranto could back up his JLT performances against GC, and despite the poor game last week if CamMcCarthy kicks straight he could post a score bordering on 100. I'm leaning towards starting Taranto, and benching McCarthy for Houston as they will be playing each other, and I expect Port to get up. Thoughts?

Fozdaddy

Tobias Greene against Gold Coast Flogs is a very sneaky VC option, feeling a 29 disposal, 6 goal game from him at his worst

Patch

That is indeed sneaky, Foz – I hadn't even conisdered him! I have very solid cognitive bias against Greene but no doubting he can go huge – I like it!

INPieman

Awesome as always Patch. The 331 poor souls who traded out Brodie Grundy have learnt a very valuable lesson. And anyone else thinking of rage trading a premo out there's a lesson on why you don't do that

SCaddict

No mention of Big Maxy in the Panic Room hey Patch?? Does this mean you are fully confident he will play and ruck more or less solo despite somewhat being in the wars this week with first a sore back and now potentially a sore wrist during a training mishap.

For I currently see Spencer looking menacingly back on the extended bench. And with Nank's Rd2 score already in the books most coaches have lost the ability to cover him (unless they have Ryder or Preuss perhaps) should he be rested.

I thought the Panic Room was constructed exactly for just this sort of paranoia ha ha?!

INPieman

That was a very cunning move sneaking WHE into your team before last nights game SCA. BANG! I wouldn't be surprised if spencer plays & gives Max a chop out. Max has had a rough week

SCaddict

Indeed INP 5pm AEDT could a nervous time for some when those extended benches are culled. Even then the decision may be left to game day and how Big Maxy feels on the day and whether he wakes up stiff or not.

Will be interesting to see how many of our rookies also survive this arvo deadline's as Eddy is already the first somewhat surprise casualty with likely more carnage to come, especially on that Norf extended bench.

INPieman

Seeing a lot of orange lines under players names. That's not good. And I'm certain not all those orange lines are going to turn green. We will need a lot of trades for rookies this year. And the people that are sideways trading non injured premos are going to seriously regret it

Patch

Big Maxy's been cleared a few times by Goodwin during the week – Spencer will flit back to emergency, I have no doubt. Had hardly crossed my mind to be honest with you

But there is mild concern now you've mentioned it…

Neverweaken

When I traded Roo almost swung Nank into the Fwd line and brought in Gawn. Instead corrective traded Adams in and was rewarded. Just can't pay that money for Gawn at the moment

Clokey

Max wont play he's scared that the Kruez will give him another touch up like he did in JLT

Seeker

Just read that Alan Richardson has said that Roo is already running again

FFS, FMD I already traded him

Youngy

Still probably a good trade, just cause he is running doesn't mean can play. Probably still ATLEAST 2 weeks away probably 3,4 or 5 at It is best to cut uncertainty out of ur team.

SCDamien

Riewoldt said himself that 2 weeks was optimistic and unlikely.

Neverweaken

Running to confidently scoring 100+ is more than 2 weeks I think.

johnno2908

Danger VC into Fyfe C for me. C is on Strnadica, don't think that is likely to change

SCaddict

Doing likewise Johnno. Hopefully that shizen hausen live scoring system is properly working at that point as it will be cutting it close to use Fyfe as a backup time-wise.

But if it's still up the wazoo well hopefully we can tell how much he is dominating using the good ole fashioned eye test and then pray he doesn't get shafted on the final score Treloar style! 🙂

Traders

Whos the better option marchbank or McGrath for Joel lSmith?

Can't decide?

Cheers

The Nank

I would wait until they both play again this week before deciding

Traders

Can't…..need to get two rookies next week who are cash cows if my other rookies aren't name or spud up……those two look like cash cows at the moment and seem to have good is? Gotta bring 1 of them in cash generation looks very low this year???

Traders

Js* not is

Patch

If you're unable to hold I'd go with Marchbank, but it's hard to tell this early

Traders

Thanks Patch

Neil Demons Delight

Awesome stuff Patch but no Witts If he gets his taps to advantage up could be value .Thinking of Strd to WITTS mainly cause I cant pronounce his name and I get McGrath as the spoons How is he in the wet patch

rdtic

Higgins or Steele??
Thoughts people

Traders

I say Steele because of dpp

Traders

You will save some coin too

Patch

Steele, because of price and DPP

Neverweaken

Steele for me. And I have him over higgins

SCDamien

The Crows are teasing Troy Menzel as a late in, and I feel that puts Andy Otten's job security at risk, and there is also a high chance that Hibberd is dropped for the returning Aaron Mullett. I think I would need to jump on Nic Newman at least if Hibberd is dropped just to cover my bases.

BrownlowBoy

Many coaches will be copping a 0 if that happens.

BlakeyP

Menzel and Otten not like for like pal completely diff player I doubt the sbobe would happen

SCDamien

They're not like for like, but Adelaide have been known to sure up fire power. I'm guessing Menzel is more in case Eddie doesn't get up (because he was ill)

Steeeve

Said it in the last thread and I'll say it again… Eddy will be back for Port. Charlie Dixon is a walking corpse, and when he is again laid to rest that spot is all Eddy's.

Patch

Agree, Steeeeeeve! Port's reincarnation technology can only last so long before international espionage agencies take note and shut it down

Emma

I might look to bring in WHE for Preuss via Stranida in my forwards if Tarintino scores well and keeps his spot.

Patch

Nice, Emma!

Rick Grimes

Will hold Eddy but reckon if Hibberd gets dropped I'll exit him. This isn't a normal year and we need to be bold.

SCaddict

So far the fantasy gods have rewarded a lot of bold moves with so many popular midpricers getting off to great starts. But it's only one round in and they may not be so forgiving in the future.

I plan to see how McGrath and the Crows rookie defenders go and if it appears that McGrath is going to be a required player at Addicts Anonymous FC I may pull the trigger early on Eddy to Hannan. Also by Saturday night we should have a better idea of whether it's worth keeping Taranto around so then can make a call on whether a Sunday trade is worth it or hold til next week.

Cash generation is going to be ultra critical this season so you have to be on the all best few rookies by the end of next week or you could find it quite an uphill climb in the first half of the season with so many poor and unreliable cows out there like the Eddys, Picketts and perhaps Hibbos etc.

INPieman

Starting with a bank would have been a good idea

Northerner

My $300k is feeling very valuable with options aplenty!

Patch

We do have Newman coming in so not all is lost!

Jay

A long shot, plus it might put me a couple of weeks behind the cash-gen 8 ball, but I'm considering holding Eddy until Harry McKay is on the bubble as some are expecting. 4 goals in the VFL last week.

JamiesNinjas13

Too early to say this isn't a normal year. Make a judgement mid year.

Geoff

Wines, Ward or Heppell?

Kev

For…? VC? I like Heppell as a sneaky pod

Patch

to trade in? From what we saw of Heppell, I can't look past him

Neverweaken

Give Heppel on more look but then considering

INPieman

Brett Eddy has been dropped for Jarman Impey

Youngy

DAMMIT, can't even use him as a loophole with my team.

INPieman

Port plays the last match of the round. Oh should be able to loop

Youngy

Can only loop a premo, don't want to risk it incase he is a late in. chances of Pickett scoring higher than Dahlhouse or Macrea, slim to none.

3 fwds already played Butler, Nank, WHE with 2 premos and Houston. bench =pickett, eddy

Youngy

Wait can't believe I didn't see that can bring Florent down fwd and use him as a loop.

Matt

Need some desperate advice;
Playing a Draft League at the moment so cost isn't an issue.

Which two am I best off running in my defense?
Josh Gibson, Bachar Houli, Zac Jones, Caleb Marchbank or Nick Haynes?

Also should I be looking to swap out either Viney or Ziebell for Stephen Hill or Mitch Duncan??

Completely undecided and would love some input!

Kev

Jones, Marchbank
No

Patch

As Kev said, Jones, Marchbank. Would go Ziebell for Duncan personally

Ando_7

I used the VC loophole on Treloar, should I stick or twist to Dangerfield?

INPieman

I'd go with danger. Scored 220 against North last year

jez_m

Danger 100%

Youngy

Agree Danger

dwhits

It is with great sadness that I will be letting go of big Rooey this week, a maximum outage of potentially 6 weeks is too much for a premo fwd, so it is back to the drawing board…

Option 1: like for like trade to Franklin / Kennedy / Macrae
Option 2: bank over 100k and trade to Higgins / Miller / Cameron

Higgins playing pure midfield on the wing with only 4% ownership… Miller's 3rd year in the system and rotating through the mid 3.9% ownership… or play it safe with Franklin etc. Charlie Cameron is an interesting one, not sure if flash in the pan or if he's gonna explode this year.

What's everyone's gut feel community?

Kev

First instinct is to go safe, dwhits. You're only making things hard for yourself by bringing in a midpricer

Patch

Depends on how badly you need the cash, DW! Cameron a flash in the pan for mine, but I've got Higgins and eyed off Touk preseason, so think they're decent options… if you need the warchest, I'd go a sneaky midpricer, otherwise stay safe

dwhits

Thanks lads, much appreciated.

Going to Franklin, his next 6-7 weeks look delicious. I'll be keeping my eye on Higgins though, another 100+ score and he may be finding his way in. Miller looks to have less midfield time and competing for points against Ablett, Hall and now Swallow.

Good luck and may the SC gods be with you.

Patch

And also with you, mate! Higgins could have a mammoth year in the guts, but see what Cunnington's return does for him first

Neverweaken

Would say franklin. Works for byes

Keenbutclueless

AFL website saying he will be back next week or Round 4!

DEE

Roo down to Miller or Higgins or someone else less than $430k?
Got Nank at F4.

Freeing up cash so next week I can go:
Otten – McGrath/Marchbank
Parfitt/Pickett – WHE

Bang, bang makes two lines much strong with JOM at M8, Hampton at D6 and Bowes at F6

Patch

Like it, DEE. Like it a lot

DEE

who do you think to replace Roo with?

Carl

Higgins of those two. Or Steele

Patch

Would go Steele. See him, Touk and Higgins as very similar, but the cash will go a long way this year

Derek

nice. Do you have Beams?

DEE

No I don't have beams but midfield pretty full.

Pendlebury, JPK, bontempelli, zorko, fyfe, crouch, Kelly, JOM

Krups

Loop Eddy for Butlers score or go with Houston on ground if named?

Patch

Go with Houston, methinks

Carl

Houston just

jez_m

Don't mind Heath Shaw as a bit of a left field VC option this weekend. His three highest scores last year (203, 143 twice) were at Spotless and one of those 143's was against the Suns. Or should I just play it safe and go Danger into Fyfe?

INPieman

Shaw could be a nice sneaky one. Those numbers are nice

Patch

With the way CD have been doing the scores I wouldn't be confident doing a Sunday VC/C. Love Heater as an option

Tommo09

JPK into Danger
Roo to JJK this week

Thinking I will need WHE next week

INPieman

WHE will be one of the most traded in players in history next week. And rightly so. That really is the epitome of a correction trade

Tommo09

I just have to find the cash for him

Top hawk

I have just gone Roo to JJK. Pulled the trigger. Can't reverse so she's locked. With Brett Eddy now dropped I can't afford to have both FWD bench spots filled by 2 lame ducks. Parfitt can now go to my FWD bench instead of being on field. Next week I will grab WHE and a rookie replacement for Joel Smith down back.

Joshua

It wouldn't be panic unless someone had to mention DAN HANNEBERY. The bloke played only 70% during jlt and 70% first game back.. Not hitting tackles, nothing. Looked like he pretty much was out all last quarter. In afl fantasy he's going to drop 80k if he doesn't score more than 60..

Would you consider trading Reiwoldt > Miller & Hannebery to either Tom rockliff + 80 thousand, or Heppell +215 thousand in the bank?

Im in the right place. Panic station. Last week didn't seem to be just a *one off bad game* for Hanners. His stats carried over exactly the same as the jlt.

Patch

With Hanners' history of being an absolute beast, I'd personally give him one more game, then pull the trigger. Also gives us more time to judge replacements.

Joshua

Problem is I didn't bring in whe this week knowing I was going to trade Hanners.. Bit annoying lol

Phil

In Fantasy I would definitely trade Hannebery to Heppell, but in SC I'd wait a week and reassess

Youngy

He's a BEAST

HOLD

rdtic

Who would you play out of Otten and Stewart???

INPieman

If Hibbo Jnr gets dropped later you can loop them. If not I'd go otten

Youngy

Stewart

Patch

Stewart for mine

rdtic

Cheers fellas

Woody

Who should I trade in for Smith – Mcgrath or Z. Jones? Also panicking about hanners – fingers crossed he is back to his best – come on CD bit of love for him tonight you owe me after the treloar debacle!

Patch

I'd hold this week if you can, Woody, so we can have a gander at Nic Newman – otherwise McGrath's the man of the moment.

Conundrums

Is it worth downgrading Roughy to WHE if he underperforms this week? i need the cash to trade Eddy to Hannan, have absolutely nothing in my cap :/

Youngy

Trading potential premos down to rookies is not ideal. Reasses after this round as u can not trade WHE in now. WHE will slow down chances of him averaging one hundred are slim, he will most likely plateau at around 400k. So I don't think he is a must have.

INPieman

Only if Roughy really spuds it

Patch

As a last resort, I guess so, but Roughie should only improve with gametime.

Phil

If you guys sold the rights to the Panic Room, Patch & Jock would be instant millionaires! Love it!
Ok Patchy boy, Roo out for Higgins, Smith out for Marchbank. Thoughts?

Patch

Cheers Phil! I love it mate. Think Higgins takes a big responsibility this year through the guts, Marchbank looks solid as anything

Carl

Good trade but wait until next week to do it

Carl

Roo > Higgins or Nank?
Will allow me to bring in WHE, Hannan or McGrath next week with plenty of cash

Youngy

Nank would be my choice

Patch

You need The Nank, Carlos!

Carl

Cheers boys. All the best with you're next couple of hours and the Panic!

mark

miles or pickett?

Youngy

If I had to choose probably Pickett just cause he has already played a game, If u can loop do because I reckon that will produce pretty crap scores

Patch

I really rate Miles, and especially as I think the Dees will waltz over the top of Carlton, I'd go with him, but he may also dish up a 40

Jake.B

Miles.

Nearly teams time – will give us all some answers!

It looks like an Ave of 82-83 (based on last ave's for guys who havnt played yet) will have you peak in price around $450k. Surely that bodes well for WHE? 200k profit is more than enough for me.

Is my maths wrong?

frogger

Think that's too high.
In-season multiplier closer to 5.0/5.1k than 5.4k for price movements.
Would see him closer to 400k by rd 10, 410 by rd 12, e.g. but if he belts out the odd 100+ like last night, that will really help.
See what others say.
Certainly seems to have JS and role advantages over the cheaper options

SCaddict

Scotty has swung the axe. Hibberd, Preuss and Mountford all given the arse!

BrownlowBoy

I have 2 of the 3.

Youngy

Was hoping Mountford would make the cut

Patch

That hurts

Steven

Trade hibberd to Otten or Newman?

SCaddict

Maybe only if you were facing a donut but even then I'd try to find the cash to bring in a Marchbank/McGrath type with decent JS and scoring potential.

Otten has Lever breathing down his neck so could get dumped at any minute and Newman has Aliir Alii waiting in the wings for his opportunity to return to senior footy. So if you don't expect to wear an onfield donut in defence this weekend I'd just sit tight on Hibbo for now.

Steven

Thanks for that i also got smith aswell on bench, havent got cash to get mcgrath and already got marchbank so probs will sit

SCaddict

Swans have swung a late change with Aliir Aliir coming in for Foote so that may be good news for Nic Newman's hopes of staying in the side a little longer.

But I still wouldn't trade in Newman until he is on the bubble if it were me i.e. just before Rd4. Might only take him one crap game to be looking on the outside in again and you've burnt a trade for nothing.

Beezneez

Agree to not trade Newman till he is on the bubble – as far as Otten is concerned it will be out of him and J Kelly who gets dropped when Lever comes back (probably next week after his SANFL trial) – Cheney should be in when he is ready but that may be some time with his hamstring setback.

Steven

Just hurts when both of them do well especially Otten

Randomcliche2

I got the full set. I should have know Brad Scott was lying through his teeth. I recall when wells went off at half time wk1 they said he was fine on Twitter named him wk2 and then late outed him….he didn't return for another 10+ rounds. Lying sods norf.

DEE

north cuts Pruess, Hibberd and Mountford – all Emergencies.

Youngy

DAMMMMMMMMMMIT I had Mountford

Carl

Final Sunday teams

Cats: Lang in for Cockatoo. Parfitt stays in

NM: Cunnington, Daw, Mullett, Garner for Waite, Hibberd, Preuss and Mountford

Already knew Eddy out for Port

Other changes not SC relevant other than Smith out

Steve

Did Houston and Atley make the cut for port

Patch

You beauty, Carl

Wellsey

Well.. hear this for a heartbreaker. I traded Roo down to T.Menzel just to have a look at how my team looked with him in it and the cash. Apparently lockout from game 1 is the end of the 'reverse trades' button and now I'm stuck with a dropped rookie forward staining my underpant.

Luckily I picked Hannan, Butler, WHE and Nank from the start so it's not panic stations regarding needing corrective trades but FFS… my war chest is incredibly full on the bright side.. Newb move on my behalf but anyway.. Panic Room is awesome. .

Derek

ahhhh… there is always the first person every year that does that.

Patch

Heart is bleeding for you Wellsey! Gotta learn the hard way sometimes… still very rough!

Kim

Sucks mate, should've gone Steele has better job security or a premonition like buddy or macrae if u didn't have them. Can only learn from mistakes. I feel for you though buddy! Best to wait next time before trading especially if saints haven't played yet. I learnt that from last year also! Trading out eddy for Hannan this week in case any nasty surprise occur after this round.

Kim

Haha meant premo

Vinstar

Community, if hanners has another below par game tonight he's looking at a massive drop in price for a good couple of weeks. Would it be worth in burning a trade and downgrade to a player who is going to generate max cash into the squad and then pick hanners back up when his price steadys?

Patch

Possibly – we'll reasses next week to see what the options are

Derek

great idea. but we all forget how precious trades are at the end of the season. how much cash is a trade (in this case 2 trades) worth to you?

Ricko

Ward to Heppell anyone?

Patch

Not after one round, Ricko. We'll assess underperforming premiums next week

Jmiester

No! 1 week is nothing. Stay the course

Jake.B

See how heppell goes this week but quite possibly.

Youngy

Agree Defintely No

Cliffy

Damn this could be a record for Emg loopholes I have this week! Hibberd out now for Roos means I can have 3 loopholes going for Defence, Midfield and Forward lines respectively.

Patch

That's looking at it optimistically, Cliffy!

Cliffy

Hahaha I guess so!

I have J.Smith to use for Defensive one via Otten/Stewart, M.Hibberd to use for Midfield one via Barrett/Parfitt, and B.Eddy for Taranto/Houston.

Chris

How do you use hibberd with barrett playing before hand and parfitt playing against north ??

hedski

Emergency on Barrett plays Saturday

Crowmagnon

Was just thinking the same.

hedski

I'm the same, Looping Otten/Stewart with Hibbo, Barrett/SPS with my mid/fwd donut and prob take Butlers 65 with Eddy (Not sure could go Parfitt or Pickett).
Might trade in next 20 mins also.

Joe T

Eddy out means I can do a sneaky loophole. Who best to start on field between Houston, Taranto and Parfitt? I'll loophole the other two with Eddy.

Cliffy

Hey I'm rolling with Taranto into Houston if that helps mate!

Steeeve

Well I have:
Eddy, Mountford, Hibberd, Preuss, Joel Smith.
Shiiiiiiiiiiiii

INPieman

Ouch

Lazza

🙁

Youngy

Ye I have 3 of them, I though that was bad

Keenbutclueless

I have 4. No Pruess. Loopholes everywhere!

Randomcliche2

I got set ad well bro! And already used trades on pies! How many will Brad 'lying son of a b' Scott name next week?

Jake.B

If treleors scoring doesn't improve then I'm swapping him for zmerret

Saundo

Yeah me too

Kim

Waste of a trade sideways premo trades are useless if they are still averaging 100 mate which treloar is and he certainly isn't injured. Trust me this is a season you are going to need all the trades you have, only corrective trades in first 2 rounds and for rookies only really. This is my fifth season so I have made those silly errors in my first few seasons.

Daniel

Yeah, no chance that will be one of your two biggest priorities next week.
