I can trade in both WHE and Houston but would only leave me 20K on bench? Do we need to have cash reserves or should we get the best rookies? I have tarintino but if he is named then I don't wish to trade him.

    Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 10:44

    I've always thought go hard on getting the right rookies prior to the price rise. Points are number one priority, but you need early cash to get the premos in quickly to get those points. Houston in for me, also holding Taranto if named. WHE, in two minds as he will empty my reserves and still expect a couple of cheaper rookies to generate the same amount of cash over the next six rounds. Tough call on WHE.

      Emma · 06/04/2017 at 11:02

      Yeah I am torn on WHE as I already used a trade last week for Roo to Buddy. I am thinking unless tarintino gets dropped I might only make the one trade of Houston. That will still give me 120K on the bench.

      I also have Pepper Pig, Otten, Marchbank, Preuss, Stewart, Butler and hampton so have some good rookies already.

Kev · 06/04/2017 at 09:55

Correctional trade. Oliver in for Crouch – Crouch is already facing a 111 b.e. As my breakout pick at 500k I would have liked him to have a fast start to push his price up while Adelaide's mids have injuries (B. Crouch, ScottyT).

Oliver looking at a rise of 50k this week and another ton against Geelong this week will see his price rising further.

    Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 10:47

    Did you pick Crouch as a keeper or stepping stone? If a keeper, then is Oliver a keeper? If as a stepping stone, the trade looks to be a better option.

      Kev · 06/04/2017 at 10:56

      I picked Crouch as the next SC beast as discussed in the mag. I didn't think of him as a top 10 mid keeper, more a handy M9-11 with a 105-110 average. Oliver has exceeded Crouch's stats and is almost 120k less.

      His contested possessions, clearances, and tackles are SC friendly. Handballs a lot, but unlike Treloar he's hitting his targets by foot

        Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 11:02

        Talked yourself into the trade, haven't you?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 11:22

    Classic Chacing points trade.

      Kev · 06/04/2017 at 14:19

      Is that a bad thing? Gaining 120k on a trade for a guy who is doing better SC/stats wise than what I currently have? Saltshaker mentioned Gawn hitting it down to him, who I rate much higher than Jacobs.

    Jiggs · 06/04/2017 at 11:36

    Yeah I was thinking of doing the same trade but your burning a trade because at the end they'll average about the same crouch maybe a little higher, because Lewis has been copping the tag and helping Oliver get the ball and Viney has been terrible and I'm thinking he'll take his points just back your selections mate crouch will come good

      Moustachio · 06/04/2017 at 18:18

      Ruck/mid combo is overrated for SC scoring tho. Look at Viney last year, meh.

      If you think Oliver will make enough cash to justify a trade (eg 100-150k+ depending what you think a trade is worth) then go for it.

    The Saltshaker · 06/04/2017 at 13:25

    kev not a bad trade, you make $120k and a +30sc (currently i dont expect this to stay this way its only 2 games) but still currently kinda ticks those 2 boxes for 1 trade, so to me the question THEN becomes are either going to be top 10 mids at years end? id say no, so thats 2 trades required so halve that trade benefit. Now its just a normal trade, youll get more from rookies in 4 weeks than you get oliver or you can upgrade to a top 8mid save a trade and get +10sc a week over oliver most weeks. He is avg you think that will go up or down by years end? im predicting by 20ppg at least.

    In your favour Gawn has said Oliver becoming his #1 go to guy. Will he start earning more attention as a result?

    Lets look at their runs Melb have 2 at mcg 2 at Docklands = not bad could be 3w 1loss

    However Crouch gets 4 at home Ade Oval, can you back him in a month and upgrade him in a month to Pendles and get on 2 best rookies this week

      RobDog · 06/04/2017 at 18:26

      Worth noting that Crouch plays his 50th this week. Am tipping him to have a big game.

    Leeds17 · 07/04/2017 at 05:46

    I think a Correctional trade would be to a genuine premo rather than a to a midpricer, I have Crouch to & he's a worry just with his lack of kicking but I can'y see him averaging less than Oliver by seasons end.

    Nick · 07/04/2017 at 09:36

    If you want to get rid of Crouch why not M Murphy? As he is more a keeper than Oliver?

Ozz · 06/04/2017 at 10:02

Hibberd or EVW out for marchbank and Ryder or roughead out for WHE.

Hibberd probably to go over EVW because i believe EVW is next in line for a a game
Leaning to get rid of ryder over rough because roughy's breakeven is lower and roughy will have a blinder against gold coast

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 11:23

    I'd wait for Newman, Ryan, Long and Berry

    bUCKET__ · 06/04/2017 at 12:28

    Don't be surprised if Ryder jumps all over Jacobs too and has a blinder, whilst WHE is suffocated at the SCG… this is how the SC gods roll sometimes 🙂

      Footloose · 06/04/2017 at 12:34

      Classic comment from a Ryder owner and a non WHE owner.

        BlakeyP · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

        Not really he is just stating what could happen. Ryder will prob have more HO than Jacobs due to his leap and Jacobs lack of (Crows supporter). And the SCG is not suited to WHE game style.
        Note: I dont own either player but may bring in WHE.

          Ridge · 06/04/2017 at 13:47

          So who should we trade out hibberd or EVW

            Danny · 06/04/2017 at 23:28

            Unless you need Hibberd for dpp, he's the one to go!

Carlos · 06/04/2017 at 10:03

D. Cameron out for Witts
D. Joyce out for Otten?

    Kev · 06/04/2017 at 10:59

    Joyce is on the rookie list, Carlos. Haven't heard anything about him getting upgraded and I'm not sure that Saints even have a spot available.

    Cameron a chance at getting named this week with Tippett injured

      hedski · 06/04/2017 at 11:05

      I reckon he had the green light first round and lots of people got him mistakenly!

        Dildor · 06/04/2017 at 13:57

        He was injured, probably would have had it

Jambak · 06/04/2017 at 10:06

Mountford -> Houston via dpp
J. Smith -> otten
Thoughts community ?

    Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 10:34

    Sounds good to me. Much greater cash generation.

    Dean · 06/04/2017 at 20:58

    Yep – Do it and lock it in FREDDY FORESKIN…

    Webspyda · 07/04/2017 at 14:49

    No Brainer!

Col · 06/04/2017 at 10:10

We can't trust Higgins can we?

    Mystic Mac · 06/04/2017 at 10:43

    I don't.

      redgumwon · 06/04/2017 at 11:34

      I do and I'm banking his points. Higgins will be a top 6 forward this year

        BlakeyP · 06/04/2017 at 13:45

        Till we all hear Twang

    Leeds17 · 07/04/2017 at 05:49

    As much as you could trust Wells last season.

Jojo · 06/04/2017 at 10:13

Butler or Houston

    Box · 06/04/2017 at 10:27


      BlakeyP · 06/04/2017 at 13:46

      Butler has little better JS right now while Houston is playin a more friendly SC roll. Points over JS?

    Mal · 06/04/2017 at 15:41

    Butler looks to have better JS. Maybe Wait and see if Houston gets picked in same side as pittard.

Joddan · 06/04/2017 at 10:13

Not sure whysome people are going o'meara to swallow they are going to make a similar amount of money… Oliver may make it a week or two quicker but ur wasting a trade to get him

    Jordan · 06/04/2017 at 10:14


    jwill2bong · 06/04/2017 at 11:32

    i know its so stupid but i have done it, i have all the cashcow rookies and just love the look the oliver was going to punt on him pre but missed it, but have somehow just talked myself into it, i want him and wont get close to the price

    Danny · 06/04/2017 at 23:36

    Oliver will average 10-15 more than O'Meara & 20 more than Swallow, so it's not the worst punt…

Matt · 06/04/2017 at 10:13

Taranto to WHE?

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 11:39

    No. They will both make coin WHE not guaranteed to keep his scoring up to present levels (though he is looking good). If you need WHE's scoring onfield better to downgrade Rough I reckon – then use the coin saved elsewhere.

    Dean · 06/04/2017 at 21:09

    Taranto to WHE is a great move. Taranto is a flog, won't make half the amount that WHE makes this season.

    The crap some people feed others on here is unreal, I would get rid of Taranto ASAP, Taranto has a breakeven of 0 and is projected to rise $26k – While WHE has a breakeven of -85 and is projected to rise $65k not to mention he will rise another 30k+ next week also – While Taranto will rise around 10k next week and will then start losing cash.

      Swans2012 · 06/04/2017 at 22:01

      So your saying the 60k extra he'll make over the next two weeks makes it worthwhile. Borderline for mine, I'm thinking it's a maybe but it's for the points not the cash that I'm thinking this. Remember how precious those trades are at the end of the year….

        Dean · 07/04/2017 at 19:28

        I'm saying first and foremost that WHE is a shit load better and will generate you (a) More points each week compared to Taranto and (b) WHE will make you a shit load more cash compared to Taranto.

        Getting extra cash this year is a HUGE bonus due to the lack of rookies, its pretty simple really.

          Swans2012 · 07/04/2017 at 21:53

          Check the team sheets out the rookies are coming, short term I agree with both your points but long term (as in end of season looking back) just saying we might look back and wish we'd saved that trade rather than made the extra 60-100k.
          Fwiw I would have done the trade but needed march bank more structure wise so did Taranto march instead…..

    The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 21:19

    If that's your only trade then yes just for the fast cash.

pete · 06/04/2017 at 10:17

thinking of trading out c ward and pickett
to another pod and WHE
If so ward to ?? or just better sit tight

    Jordan · 06/04/2017 at 10:27


      Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 10:36

      Not touching Port or Suns premos(if any) until after the round 9 farce.

    Kev · 06/04/2017 at 11:01

    Keep Ward. If you can trade Pickett to Houston/Butler/Hannan then do so

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:41

    What's wrong with Ward? The only time I'd trade him is if he was injured, HOLD

Kyle · 06/04/2017 at 10:29

Thoughts on this… lynch to Higgins and the upgrade
Witts to my bench. Seeing as though
There aren't many good rookies.

    Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 15:57

    Beware of Higgins promises every year only to disappoint

    Bruiser again · 06/04/2017 at 21:48

    Do it

PD09 · 06/04/2017 at 10:37

Do I back Hannebery in?
Thoughts? Can someone convince me why I should or shouldn't trade him?

I'm thinking of keep him..

I figure Hanners in about 10% of teams & I expect a large number to jump ship making him a POD.
I also expect him to turn it around. Sure he may lose $150k or more but that's when everyone will jump on him.
That means it could very well cost me two trades

    Mystic Mac · 06/04/2017 at 10:46

    Keep him. I'll be looking to pick him up through the bye rounds. It's DAN HANNEBERY we're talking about here.

      Daniel · 06/04/2017 at 11:23

      I've got him and I'm torn as well. I haven't seen him play this year but from the sounds of it, he's nowhere near his best.

      Last year, I had Sloane and Jelwood in my mids, both stunk it up first couple rounds so I wanted to switch 'em both out. I couldn't because of rookie corrections but did give Sloane the axe. He ended up 13th best mid for the year (playing 21 games) and Selwood ended up 7th best mid. Should have kept both as the trade would have come in handy for anything else.

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 11:26

    Hanners only in 10%! With all the howling you would think it was 90%

      Hanners U Tool · 06/04/2017 at 15:59

      It was probably 30% at the start of the week

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 12:00

    Good ol Dan.
    I am trading this is why,
    If our fearless leader JR says trade him then that is good enough for me.
    A couple of stats I cant get past:
    Rd 1 – zero tackles – yep zero, zilch, nadda, the last time hannas had zero tackles in a game was wayyy back in 2011!
    7 kicks rd 1 & rd 2. Last time he had 7 kicks was in the GF when he injured his leg. Coincidence?

    If he was just underperforming I would say keep him but I just think he is carrying something is looking for easy ball and is favouring handballing over kicking.,.. so for mine time to brutal and trade.

    But you have to make your own choices and what you feel is best for your team.

    Make a call and go with it.

      meph · 06/04/2017 at 12:38

      We do all these trades to maximise cash generation why cant we do a trade to limit cash depreciation. It seems very unlikely to me hanners finishes a top 8 mid from here. I got all my roomies right apart from WHE so i can afford the correctional trade. I have switched hanners for bont so premo to premo. No doubt hanners improves this year but i cant afford to wait for that to happen.

        Casper · 06/04/2017 at 15:02

        Because he is not there for $$ generation, he has been picked as a keeper, losing $$ doesn't mean a thing re:keepers!

        Brandon · 06/04/2017 at 20:53

        Hanners had 5 games last year under 100, two of which were 68 and 76. Still finished top 5. I'd be lying if I haven't played around with trading him, but he's a premo and will come good! (Touch wood)…

          Dean · 06/04/2017 at 21:21

          Handonbery is so screwed this season be prepared for him to be a late withdrawal in a few games.

          He is injured something chronic and is playing like a crab. Wake up people!!!

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:43

    I'll tell you an interesting fact. Hannebery averaged the 6th most points per game in 2015 and 2016 out of all the players. And you're thinking of trading him out…

      Moustachio · 06/04/2017 at 18:27

      Is that you Dan?

Egghead · 06/04/2017 at 10:39

Which two on field out of these four please.
Taranto, Butler, Hannah or Florent?

    Kev · 06/04/2017 at 11:02

    Taranto, Butler

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 11:52

    If it's CoachKings Florent makes a great first half selection to be traded out at halftime. Fades badly atm, still building a tank.

Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 10:42

The rumour is that Houston will be out this week. ( from SEN ) .

Not in my team yet.. but was planning it. Thank god for that reverse button if it does eventuate.

    hedski · 06/04/2017 at 10:47

    Was looking at him too, bugger.

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 11:31

    Houston we have a problem?!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 11:42

      We r not good for launch. Over.

hedski · 06/04/2017 at 10:46

Tim Smith not far from getting a game at Melbourne…. The rookies are coming.

Bhargs · 06/04/2017 at 10:49

J. Steele out of WHE?

    Emma · 06/04/2017 at 11:15

    I have Steel and will be holding he did score 113 in first round and spent most of round 2 on the bench. Also WHE is playing swans this week so he could come out with a 50 not worth the trade. Also saints have 9 out of next 11 games at ES where he is suited better I reckon.

    jwill2bong · 06/04/2017 at 11:46


    Valens_FC · 06/04/2017 at 12:43

    crazy talk

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 15:06


JGown · 06/04/2017 at 11:07

would love some feedback!
I can either trade Hannebery to a proven premo and miss out on getting Otten; or
I can Hold Hannebery and trade in Otten.

    Matt · 06/04/2017 at 11:17

    Rookies are priority, hold Hannebery

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 11:49

    I would not be desperate to trade in Otten myself. Good start but history of injuries and JS remains an issue. Was prob a good initial selection but can see a trade in going wrong pretty easily.
    Hanners to Oliver/Beams/Swallow/Omera, and bring in a premo defender?

Gaz · 06/04/2017 at 11:07

The only way i can get WHE in, is either by trading Roughead or Taranto?

Trading Roughead leaves me with 220k in the bank

Thoughts Community?????????

    Emma · 06/04/2017 at 11:19

    I would hold roughie I don't see any benefit in going roughie to WHE, if tarintino is dropped then trade to WHE.

    Roughead missed a year of footy he is not going that badly I reckon he can still average 90 for the year.

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 12:04

    Lift Gaz!

    Rivo · 06/04/2017 at 13:26

    Hold Gaz. They are not injured and will make more cash.

Matt · 06/04/2017 at 11:09

Option 1 – Roughead out for WHE and Joel smith out for Marchbank, frees up $40,000. Option 2 – Sandilands out for Witts and smith out for Marchbank.

    Leigh · 06/04/2017 at 11:23

    Option 1. Sandi will be a more likely to churn out a 100 every other week and will make more $

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:45

    Option 1. Sandilands is more likely to average more than Roughead for the time being

Whykick · 06/04/2017 at 11:22

I am thinking of Buddy as VC and Danger as C. I hope Buddy does very well because I am concerned about heavy tagging/ roughouse tactics by the Demons. Rember Viney and Gaza!
Maybe Fyfe against the Doggies in Perth?
Thought community.

    Nick · 06/04/2017 at 11:30

    Yesterday l posted that l wld put the VC in buddy but know not too sure… his avg against them isn't the best!!
    Also thinking VC danger into Beams?

    John James · 06/04/2017 at 16:44

    That's what I have done,although the mention of Viney and Gaza is not quite right,you are aloud to tackle,more to the point would be when Vince went up against Danger,when he was still at the Crows,and did a top tagging roll.

Peter · 06/04/2017 at 11:33

Thinking of trading out Callum mills for Jason johannisen and also Simpkin who has done stuff all to Butler. I know I don't have to trade but feel these corrections need to be done, thoughts please? Particularly on mills

    Valens_FC · 06/04/2017 at 12:48

    I think it's a reasonable call Peter on Mills. If you look at the write up on the winner last year, his first 3 trades could all be classed as corrective. I can't see things changing materially for Mills given his role, whether JJ is the right one to go to I don't know. Adams, Howe, J Lloyd all at similar or lower prices look valid selections.

    Simpkin to Butler I would hold fire. There are several other rookie options coming (e.g. Hayward from Sydney who is a FWD and looked awesome last week). May as well take whatever cash Simpkin has made then trade to a rookie on the bubble in a future week. I don't think Butler is a must have.

      Crippler · 06/04/2017 at 23:18

      I'd get butler in this week. Will rise in value big time. Also the 1 game rookies might stink it up in their second game

        Valens_FC · 07/04/2017 at 10:00

        With Simpkin now not playing I'd have to agree!

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:21

    Mills was the only young breakout midpricer who i went with this year. i rate him very high. He will be 100% midfield by year end , but in the meantime (Mcveigh out) he won't be getting much time there.

    I'm trading him out this week as my only trade.

      Valens_FC · 07/04/2017 at 10:01

      You're a brave man sticking by Cyril – it's bang bang for me!

Choices · 06/04/2017 at 11:35

Hannebery to Bont
Ablett to Nankervis

    adam · 06/04/2017 at 11:51

    hanneberry to Bont makes sense… I am thinking the same with Parker.. The Bont looks like he could have a Dangerfield year and Parker looks to be carrying an injury…

    I would hold on the last. See how Gary goes this week… he will be stung by the criticism and loves Hawthorn to boot….
    also if you trade out a keeper you want a keeper in return

      Choice · 06/04/2017 at 12:47

      Well I'm thinking nank will be a keeper in the fwds
      Means playing Taranto in the midfield

        Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:18

        what other ruckmen do Tigers have to come back? when

          adam · 06/04/2017 at 14:45

          yes Hampson is the risk whenever he is fit.. not sure when due back..
          Personally I dont see nankervis as a keeper
          the other consideration is that yes nank the hank is scoring well but they have won 2 games.. how will he score when they lose which is a formality as its Richmond… Beating Collingwood and Carlton doesnt necessary smack of top 8 material to me..

    Rick · 06/04/2017 at 13:06

    premo to premo, premo to mid-price. Makes not a lot of sense

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:46

    "Gee I wonder what's going on there, in the brain department". A Brian Taylor quote which sums up those trades

Gawners · 06/04/2017 at 11:40

Roughy to WHE and Joel Smith to Marchbank


Roughy to Oliver via dpp and Pickett to Houston

    Mog · 06/04/2017 at 13:42

    Definitely Option 1. I am making same trade.

    Houston not Guaranteed ToPlay play

Ethan · 06/04/2017 at 11:41

dunno which is better, bring in otten and have him sit on the bench at D7 or bring in butler/houston and play him at F6

CJay · 06/04/2017 at 11:42

One trade for me this week.
J.Smith OUT (L.T.I.), Swing Hibberd to DEF, Swing Picket to Mid and WHE IN.
Believe this is a better move than a sideways TT to WHE.
Resisting the temptation to trade Ryder out for the Nank.
Thoughts appreciated community.

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 13:04

    Like it, but I'd prob cave and trade Nank in. But then I run out of trades every year. BANG BANG!

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:17


    Beezneez · 06/04/2017 at 13:33

    Wish I had the $$ to do that trade.

      CJay · 06/04/2017 at 14:42

      Thanks for the feedback guys.
      Had the $'s but nearly all gone on the WHE trade.
      But, as suggested above, going to the Nank puts half the $ back in the warchest.
      Just trying to justify the move.
      J.LT. The Nank 89 129 89 and then 114 and 124 in the first two rounds against quality ruck men but average teams.
      Hmm JLT Ric V Port – Nank 129 and Ryder 66 (with a bit less game time) Significant?

Dee · 06/04/2017 at 11:42

Trade out Ablett, Taranto
Trade in Murphy, Oliver.
Get 2 premo scorers at cheap price, keepers. Sacrifice Ablett?

    Ethan · 06/04/2017 at 11:49

    well you've sacrificed an ultra premo for 2 mid pricers

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:16

    i don't mind SMurph, he is a fallen premium. in a year where we will be short on cash, he might just end up your M8 out of necessity.

    Breakout midpricers very rarely work. Oliver might be different but i doubt it

      Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:02

      Be careful of Murph he was left alone last week and defensive effort went to Simpson who couldn't cop it. When sides put the work back into Murph he will fade

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 15:11

    Fun risk to take. I like it.

Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 11:44

I'm going NRoo to WHE this week. It gives me a few more weeks to evaluate Taranto and Florent, the lesser of which I will trade for NRoo after he plays one game injury free.
Sound good?

    Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 13:00

    Word is Roo will play. What now?

groundhogday · 06/04/2017 at 11:45

how about we read previous comments before posting the same questions over and over again

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 12:07

    That's been going on all week

      whoolidooli · 06/04/2017 at 13:18

      and next week will be all about Newman! lol

DEE71 · 06/04/2017 at 11:49

Posted a couple of days ago but didn't get a reply.
Can you let me know what you would do?

Will depend on selection I guess but traded Roo down last week to get cash to bring in Marchbank and WHE this week.

Florent or Bowes to WHE?
Bench Hannan/Butler

Stewart/Otten/Gutherie to Marchbank?
If I trade Gutherie loose my captain loophole.

What would you do esp in defence?

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 12:11

    I'd go Bowes to WHE & Guthrrie to Marchbank. Otten & Stewart are on the bubble. I assume you mean the Cats Guthrie by the way. I wouldn't be too concerned about losing captain loophole. Guaranteed another rookie will be dropped shortly

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 12:20

    Personally I'd go Florent to WHE, bench Hannan and then trade Guthrie for Marchbank, at this point of the season a captains loophole is 100% needed as Danger is a solid captain option week in – week out

      Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 12:20

      Isn't 100% needed***

Paul · 06/04/2017 at 11:51

Should Lynch (Suns) be traded or held. Sideways trade for JJK and then pick up Lynch after early bye for cheaper.

    Seeker · 06/04/2017 at 14:44

    Wastes 2 trades if trade him out then get him back in later. Hold and perhaps pick up JJK around the byes. JJK will drop in price too. He was on like 19 SC points at half time only got to 82 because he kicked 4 second half goals

      Paul · 06/04/2017 at 16:09

      Done and done!

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:48

    Hold, you picked him for a reason

liam · 06/04/2017 at 11:59

Thoughts on roughie to whe??

    Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 12:27

    Read the other 16583599 comments exactly the same

      Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:05

      agree. getting a little tired

The Buttonsticher · 06/04/2017 at 12:08

I'm keeping Lynch for this week, dropping 2 underwelming rookies and putting in 2 that are not only performing but will add (according to Footywire) $140,000 to my team. If Lynch drops his strides again then bye bye and hello Budwiser.

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2017 at 12:13

Anyone else not jumping on WHE and Marchbank?

    Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 12:24

    I started with WHE and am certainly not jumping on marchbank

      Seeker · 06/04/2017 at 14:46

      didn't start with WHE but started with Marchbank. Will only bring in WHE if one of my rookies is dropped, I think

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 13:03

    i think anyone who started with both need to sit back and nod their head a little. tell their wives how clever they are and have a drink to celebrate.

    good luck if you started with them, hard to jump on now unless you have a Smith who is done and $100k cash. any other messing with structure is not good idea.

    there will be other WHE and Marchbanks to come along

      Beezneez · 06/04/2017 at 13:36


      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 14:16

      I started with both Derek. Tonight I'll be sitting on my recliner sipping a glass of cognac & stroking a white cat

        Kev · 06/04/2017 at 14:21

        Ditto, Pie. Guess we're pretty clever…

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 14:39

          So did I lucky enough
          I figure easier to go do down to a rook if they spud than trying to find the cash to go up
          Looks like we r locking horns this weekend in the Happy place Kev.
          Excellent. (Insert Mr Burns here)

      Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:28

      Spot on.. luckily I'm one nodding their head.

      Still got other headaches like Do I bring in Hannan for Mountford

    Mystic Mac · 06/04/2017 at 13:05

    I have neither BrownlowBoy. Wouldn't mind Marchbank but it's going to cost me 2 trades.
    Praying my rookies (Otten, Hampton, Stewart) get me to the bye rounds.

      Derek · 06/04/2017 at 14:39

      i think there are a few nice Defence rookies not far away from games.

      Berry, Ryan, Scharenberg, Long…plus Newman who has played 1

      marchbank has been ok, but both weeks he could easily have scored 50, i thought his score was good considering the games he had. imo

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 14:55

        ESP first game as he had some clangers!
        His intercept marking is the key to his scoring

        INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 18:17

        A new wave of rookies is coming. There's no need to do anything rash & stuff up your structure

    red5 · 06/04/2017 at 14:00


    poloko48 · 06/04/2017 at 23:16

    No to WHE, yes to Marchbank, had $$$ to trade in for Smith.

    4rm · 07/04/2017 at 00:07

    I didn't start with either, have saved roughly $160 000, my thoughts are this money saved, will turn 2 premiums into ultra premiums. The money made on my cheaper rookies, should also grow to the same amount, maybe a bit slower, and I may loose a few points early. But 'tis a long season, and I want the ultra premos. I'm backing this theory in, hopefully it pays off.

James · 06/04/2017 at 12:16

Have most of the rooks except Butler Houston WHE. Thinking of going:
Smith -》 WHE via dpp
Simpkin -》 Butler

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 12:59

    keep simpkin

      Seeker · 06/04/2017 at 14:47

      agreed, keep Simpkin unless he's dropped

Damo · 06/04/2017 at 12:17

I've got $114K in the bank. Thinking of upgrading Pickett to WHE and then downgrading Aaron Hall to Murphy which will give me that money back. After this round Hall and Murphy will be worth approx the same and I don't trust Aaron Hall as far as I can kick him. Thoughts?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 12:58

    i would go Hall to WHE (via Pickett)

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:01

    Pickett to WHE is perfect.
    However, not too sure about Hall to Murphy. You would have to have an almost perfect set of rookies to consider swapping Hall as it is a luxury trade and not a necessity.
    What mid-pricers and rookies do you have Damo?

      Damo · 06/04/2017 at 13:14

      Backline is- Otten, Hampton, Stewart, Smith.
      Mid- Steele, SPP, Barrett, Pickett, Hibberd
      Witts in the ruck
      Fwd- Taranto, Butler, Eddy, Parfitt

        Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:58

        Hmmm decent set of rookies, Houston only good rookie missing. Maybe its just me, but the Hall –> Murphy trade just doesn't sit right. However there is every chance I am proven wrong.

          Damo · 06/04/2017 at 14:04

          I hear you. I've been racking my brain about it all week. Just have a sick feeling he is going to burn me, and I lik the comfort of having a bit of cash in the bank making it easier to get premiums when it's time. Dilemmas…. thanks for your help and feedback.

            Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 16:03

            I can see why you'd want to trade Hall, his lack of desire to play any defence worried me on the weekend, I just think you need to go up from Hall (Bont, Selwood etc.) instead of down to Murphy.
            Obviously this would need cash, so maybe if Hall continues to play like last week, than find some funds in the next couple of weeks and upgrade.
            No problems mate

      Damo · 06/04/2017 at 13:23

      Sorry and Marchbank of course

    smithwick · 06/04/2017 at 13:22

    Sweet! im in the same boat…trades done thanks Damo

JRod · 06/04/2017 at 12:21

Hibberd – WHE (Via DPP) I knew that bank of cash would come in handy.
Need some help with the following:
1. P.Cripps – Trade to Oliver/Murphy or hold.
2. J.Smith – Hannan
3. Strandica – Witts (bench cash cow) and hold J.Smith for loophole.
All will probably change come team selection but need to have a plan.

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 12:56

    I like option 3 out of the ones you have suggested

Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 12:24

Like to know everyone's thoughts on this idea.
As WHE and Witts are not keepers they are therefore in to make money; if by round 9 I believe Witts will rise in value more than WHE, is he a better trade in option even if he is a bench player and WHE would be on field

    Trent · 06/04/2017 at 12:50

    Depends what you care about. Yes money is important but by having $200k+ on bench in R3 and playing someone like Butler/Pickett etc on field you'll be losing 30-50 points per week making it hard for overall/H2H wins.

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 12:57

    no because you will struggle to trade down to another rookie ruck when you sell him. Where WHE there will be plenty of rookie downgrade options

      Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

      To get Witts in I have moved Strndica to the Fwd Line, therefore when I trade Witts out I can trade him to a forward rookie or even mid rookie depending on dpp.
      Does this change anything Derek?

Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 12:26

Thoughts on downgrading Dahlhous to Roughead so I can upgrade Murphy to Dangerfield?

    Rick · 06/04/2017 at 12:52

    silly on both counts

    Trent · 06/04/2017 at 12:52

    Danger is essential but surely not for Murphy! Dahlhaus is as much a keeper as anyone in the game with his FWD eligibility. So you'll just have to suck it up for a few weeks and build towards Danger from a O'Meara / Swallow type.

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 12:54

    april fool joke for sure

      Keenbutclueless · 06/04/2017 at 13:05

      Yup. Nice piece of bait.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:28

    Haha Bad trades

    Danners · 06/04/2017 at 17:49

    If you do those trades, you're username says it all

Conundrums · 06/04/2017 at 12:41

In a predicament and need some advice,
I do not have WHE and to get him in I would need to go down one of the following paths.
1. Roughead to WHE
2. Taranto to WHE, but would have to swing Dahl to mid, meaning SPP would be on bench.
Im thinking option one as i dont want to have SPP sitting on pine and having to play an extra rookie in FWD line.
OR i could just hold and miss out on WHE?

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 10:53

    Ohhhhh that is bad….. maybe option 2 would be best in the long run BUT SPP on the bench will give you less points now. I say leave it because Jock says that Roughy shouldn't be traded out and WHE may be a dud for the rest of the season

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2017 at 12:42

Parsons upgraded to senior list for Geelong – not Guthrie as many expected.

    Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 13:21

    Stealing Parfitts spot maybe?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 13:33

    Who the hell is parsons?

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 10:53

      My thoughts exactly

      Chickenlegs · 07/04/2017 at 14:41

      He's on the nose.

        Leeds17 · 07/04/2017 at 17:43


Big F · 06/04/2017 at 12:44

Hey lads. Need some advice.

Should I trade eddy up to WHE??
eddy's js seems shite. This would firm up my starting fwds. Leaving butler and Hanan on the bench.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 10:54

    Butler is good enough to be a starter so I say leave it eddy will generate more cash than WHE

Andrew · 06/04/2017 at 12:46

Sideways trade of Roughead to Nankervis?

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 12:59

    Hell yeah! Ruck cover AND big money maker, with chance of staying in the team for good.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:29

    I'd being holding personally

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 10:55

    Hard one but I wouldn't waste a trade. You will either regret it because Nank will score big and you won't be able to afford him or Roughy will score big when you trade him or you will need that trade later on. I'd personally do it though

Houston · 06/04/2017 at 12:47

What do we do with Houston if he is dropped?
I already have Hannan, Butler, Eddy, pickett, parfitt and cant afford to go to WHE

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:31

    You could bring in Preuss if he plays… but I'd just hold him even if he isn't named

Dimwitt · 06/04/2017 at 12:48

T Boyd to Preuss…for cash

Then bowes to heppel..keeper

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 12:55

    If Boyd is on field than absolutely not, Preuss could be dropped any minute
    Also a keeper is usually someone that will finish at least Top 15 in their position if not higher and Heppell will not be in that position come R23

      Col · 07/04/2017 at 11:55

      He might be. I don't have Heppell, but I like him
      I do agree preuss is only a bad game away from being dropped again as he was after the first game only to get a last minute recall and pull out a great game – without Goldy (who is back in)

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 10:56

    Boyd to Witts

Valens_FC · 06/04/2017 at 12:58

I have J Steven and not unhappy to be effectively forced into trading him because probably would have pulled the trigger anyway… I am convinced Bont is going to be top 8 and maybe higher, but I don't like his round 11 bye – especially as I have 4 other premos with round 11 byes. Is this a valid reason not to pick him?

Dusty has a round 12 bye and is around the same price, but feel Bont might be a bit more consistent week to week because he's in a stronger team. Could go to Zerret or Pendles (both round 13 byes), but feel there's going to be better opportunities to buy them cheaper. Pendles is virtually guaranteed consistent scoring though.


    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:03

    Don't worry about Pendles becoming cheaper, he's a gun ultra-premo so price isn't a major issue. If he works with your bye structure, get him in.

      Valens_FC · 06/04/2017 at 13:27

      Cheers mate – might need to stop trying to be smart and pick the next big thing and just go with the proven Prince!

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 11:01

    Don't let the bye rounds fool you into not picking good players. Supercoach is like America, you can go to the store and buy guns whenever you feel, referring to Bont. If they get jammed you fix it (wait over the bye) and go back to hunting for that supercoach 50,000. It mightn't make a lot of sense BUT take advantage of it even though it might stuff your team for one round. And H2H would be better for the other two rounds

Jim · 06/04/2017 at 13:00

Should I do Hickey to Witts and bank the cash, Hickey to Stefan Martin or hold? Went a POD with Hickey and after a 44 against Gawn and 98 against no WCE ruckman I am stuck

    jez_m · 06/04/2017 at 14:35

    Depends who your other ruckman is. If you have a proven quality ruck already (Gawn, Goldy, Grundy) then I would go Hickey to Witts. If you have Sandi, then I would be inclined to trade into a proven ruckman rather than Witts.

    Seeker · 06/04/2017 at 14:53

    Either trade if good. With Witts you will be trading him out with Martin you'd have him as a keeper.

    HOWEVER, both might be somewhat effected soon with Archie Smith (for Bris) and Currie (for GCS) pushing up for selection.

    IF Smith is named this week I'd suggest going Witts and generate cash until the byes then trade to someone like Grundy Gawn etc, Or if you can get Grundy now do that instead

    Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 18:04

    I have the same issue with Hickey but if we put it into perspective he has had one bad week. Should we really trade him already? I think I will hold despite the fact there are other options that I have that could generate me big $$$. I wouldn't waste a trade just yet.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2017 at 11:02

    Hockey was always a trap. He didn't get as many hitouts because he wasn't good enough. That ruck rule didn't change anything. But now that you have him down to Witts is a good cash gen and scoring option

creeky23 · 06/04/2017 at 13:03

Mitchell Hibberd > Ben Ainsworth.
Darcy Cameron > Dan Houston (pending team announcements)

    SF4 · 06/04/2017 at 19:48

    I wouldn't bring in Ainsworth, get WHE, Butler, Houston or Hannan instead of Ainsworth.

      creeky23 · 06/04/2017 at 22:15

      Got me all except Hannan mate

Aaron · 06/04/2017 at 13:06

What are people's views on trading Roughy to WHE? Is it crazy talk? Is it worth it at this early stage to free up some cash?

    Jim · 06/04/2017 at 13:14

    C'mon man. There's a million questions/replies on this exact player combo. Just read up and you'll be suitably responded to..

      Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 20:00

      THe fact there are a million posts on the thread makes it hard to find though tbh.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:31

    I'd Hold

Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:07

If you don't have enough cash to get to Grundy, I'd personally go for Witts and bank the cash

Kevan · 06/04/2017 at 13:10

One correction trade this round. Rookies are ok. Keeping Roo. Sandilands to Witts. Always going to trade Sandi and Witts will get to my cash growth limit quicker and more likely to generate more points along the way.

The Saltshaker · 06/04/2017 at 13:11

*the 120 will be there this week and next = $$

sandni836 · 06/04/2017 at 13:15

Do I trade M. Hibberd and/or D. Mountfod? if so who do I trade in? Hibberd is in the backline and mountfod midfield

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:32

    Who are your other rookies?

Jack · 06/04/2017 at 13:16

Rough out Nank in??

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:32

    It's a debate, personally I'd hold but a lot of others would and are making that trade

    AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2017 at 17:31

    Im making that trade, but the deciding factor is that i will gain back-up for sandilands.

Col · 06/04/2017 at 13:18

Another rookie to debut this week
Durdin from North has been confirmed
Fwd 123.9k

Will probably be back out when Thompson is back but still another one for us to watch

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:48

    Was a very good SC scorer as a junior

The Coach · 06/04/2017 at 13:19

Is it worth trading out O'Meara for Nankervis..? Or would trading in WHE for non-playing rookie be a better move… Can only have one unless I trade out Tommy Lynch (GC) which I don't want to do. Opinions?

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:40

    WHE in for a non-playing rookie 100%

    jez_m · 06/04/2017 at 14:36

    WHE for non-playing rookie

The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 13:20

Anyone at HQ reading this….the website is still having problems loading the most current page.
On my phone the most recent post is Jocks Rd3 trade table, on my PC at work it's Barrons rookie round up and at home on my Mac it was LekDogs cheat sheet.
It's bloody boring when you're trying to keep up with the latest threads and it's been going on all preseason too..
Not whinging, just thought you'd like to know about it.
In order to find this page on my PC i had to enter trade table into the search

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:47

    You have to constantly refresh the page Ranger. That does the job for me

    No issues on my machines

    Bombers56 · 07/04/2017 at 06:58

    Yes, I consistently have this 🙁

Rick · 06/04/2017 at 13:21

Roughy's a mid-pricer averaging 77 – what did people expect? You should only be getting rid of him once one of your rookies has peaked in price, then upgrade Roughy to a premo.

uDonkey · 06/04/2017 at 13:21

All week i have been contemplating on getting Hanners out. I got him for a reason, to be one of my top 8 midfielder for the season (Keeper). So i decided he remains in my team unless he is injured.

I went with Guns'n'Rookies approach in all positions except Ruck as i have SandiWitts and left with good chunk of cash in the war chest for Rookies i may have missed especially the high priced rookies such as WHE and McGrath.

I have Smith in defense who is injured, Hibberd in mid who's done bugger all, and Strnadica in ruck as my loophole/cover via Nankervis.

This week i can't decide wether i should/must bring WHE for Smith via Hibberd or hold trade for new batch of Rookies on the bubble.

I have $251.600 in the bank.

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 14:12

    I'd bring in WHE this week. At least his JS is fairly robust and he will make a pile of coin even if he has a quieter night against the Swans with that 120 riding in his pricing for the next 2 weeks.

    Although there are a couple of promising Swans rookies who could be on the bubble next week their JS is probably inferior to WHE's imo. You have the bank and a rookie with a LTI so are the perfect candidate for a WHE acquisition as it will only cost you the one trade and dumping a player guaranteed not to be playing.

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 20:06


Rivo · 06/04/2017 at 13:23

With the uncertainty on rookies, I am going only 1 trade:

Smith to Butler via DPP.

Bench rooks include Stewart, Hibberd, Barrett, Parfitt, Picket, Houston & Eddy. Staying with Taranto as I think he will make similar cash to WHE. Don't want to burn trades at this stage.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:33

    Solid trade

Houston · 06/04/2017 at 13:26

What do we do with Houston if he is dropped?

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:45

    If he does get dropped I'd be confident he will come back. I'd hold him unless something screams out to be picked

    undypuncher · 06/04/2017 at 13:48

    Hold he shoukd still playbin the future and you can eother captain loophole or bench loophoke hij in the meantime

    Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 14:18

    Very stiff if he misses out, should be back soon enough I'd think. Hold for mine

Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 13:27

So I'm stuck between 2 options:
1: Rough out Nank in, keep 100k I have
2: McCarthy to Teia Miles (need dpp) and Taranto to Nank, 20k left over.
Team selection might make the choice easier, but assuming they're all named what should I do?
Can't stand the thought of trading out Roughie, could go MASSIVE this week. However want some leftover cash to strengthen my defensive rookies next week with a few promising options.

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:38

    Really need McCarthy outta there, is it possible to go McCarthy to Nank?

      Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 17:24

      Unfortunately not, only way to be able to generate enough cause for that would be to do the Taranto trade as well

        Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 17:25


    undypuncher · 06/04/2017 at 13:43

    Back roughy in you oicked him for a reason rookies arent proven. .. roighy is onky going to get better

Lach · 06/04/2017 at 13:27

Ryder or Picket out for WHE..

    undypuncher · 06/04/2017 at 13:41

    Back ryder in

SC17 · 06/04/2017 at 13:30

My Trades for this week:
Roughy to WHE and Brodie to Oliver
I am thinking of changing Oliver to someone more reliable.

Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 13:31

Hrovat to the Bont.
Hibberd to Butler (subject to change).

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 13:37

    bang bang

BZZZ · 06/04/2017 at 13:32

Should I trade out Jack Viney? If so should it be for murphy or maybe even ollie wines? Any other suggestions around that price?

    John James · 06/04/2017 at 15:19

    Wines or oliver,but really can't say without knowing who else you have in your mids,if you don't have Bont,I would upgrade to him.

    Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:08

    Murph is a definite no. Wines and Viney pretty even really so why make the trade, beware of the early bye on wines, if you can get the Bont then that is a step up so do that if you can imo

INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:33

I've had plenty of sleep problems over Gary this week. But now that he's finally facing the media I'm going to back him in. But swapping him for Bont has looked very tempting. I'll be looking at Hayward & Newman Friday night & then deciding what to do this week, if anything

    Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

    Back Gaz in. Surely he'll respond, surely. I just don't see him as a guy who would phone it in. Too much of a champion.

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:55

      Never write off a champion. 2,906 coaches have given him the boot so far this week. He's now a POD

        Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 14:16

        I'm 1 of 2906 then….But I reckon he will come out this week and maybe a few more and really smash it, -then slowly drop off again…..

        Of course now that I've traded him he will come good all year, but I'm set on the decision- I watched both games and he played 1 good half out of 4, didn't look too interested or 100% confident in his body for mine. Plus the suns are a rabble!

        I think I'll get more sleep out of Dusty or the Bont.

    John James · 06/04/2017 at 15:23

    I really don't know why people even picked him in the first place,not at his price,hasn't been the same since his injury,just get rid of him,he looked terrible last week,the Bont would be a lot better,SC seems to favor him.

      Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:14

      JJ please I could come up with a few reasons why people like Gazza. Even if you look back to win he was absolutely flying the odd 70 score would pop in.

      Champions do fall but I am hesitant to write gaz off too quickly

        John James · 06/04/2017 at 16:34

        Hi Tibor,I did sound a bit harsh didn't I,my point though was that since the beginning of last year,when I also didn't have him,Danger has been no1,Gary is a champ in decline due to his age and injury,so you bypass him for some one else,like Pendles, Bont, Fyfe, just to name a few.

          Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:38

          I did exactly that JJ I don't have him but despite a slow start he is very much in my future plans after he has the early bye coming home from china

    Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:10

    Maybe gaz has earned the benefits of the doubt, can't think of anyone who deserves a chance more

Micky_B · 06/04/2017 at 13:34

Downgrade riewoldt to WHE and J.smith to marchbank leaving 220k in the bank
roughy down to WHE and smith to marchbank?
Was thinking of going roughy to heeney when he comes back

Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 13:35

Gee there's a heck of a lot of trade in action for WHE. The SC Gods love nothing more than to strike down a rookie bandwagon. Hope the lad doesn't stink it up.

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 13:59

    I don't think this is a fixture that suits WHE. Can't see him dominating on a small ground. I've had him from the start. If he does stink it up I'm not concerned now as everyone will cop it

      Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 14:04

      Yea I got him in Rd 1 too. Reckon he'll score 60ish. Which is fine given first couple scores.

Paul · 06/04/2017 at 13:37

Thoughts please.

Can bring either Witts or WHE into my team solely for cash generation. Who should I choose and why?
Thanks community.

    Jim · 06/04/2017 at 13:51

    Witts is more injury prone. Less risk involved with WHE. I personally see WHE putting up 80+ scores consistently throughout the season.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 10:49

    I think a #1 ruck is more reliable point scorer than a colliwobble outside player. Pies easy games to date. Going to get tough now.

The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 13:38

I think I've convinced my self to bring in both Otten and Houston this week but I'm not sure who to trade out.
Got DPP's all over so can swing things about and get rid of any of the below…let me know who you'd trade out.and why.
Barrett, Parfitt, Pickett, Florent, Simpkin, Hibberd, Eddy

    Jonah · 06/04/2017 at 13:48

    Isn't Hibberd struggling for a game?

      The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 13:57

      He might get a look in this week with Thompson being out and he has the handy DPP.
      But yeah…he could be one to chop.

        Northernsoul74 · 06/04/2017 at 15:41

        Sam Durdin is coming in for Thompson

          The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 15:47


    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 14:29

    That's a real spud factory you've got going on there with your rookies Ranger. I'd definitely be bringing in Otten for sure. You may not have to move on Houston just yet if the rumours that he will be an OUT tonight prove true.

    Whoever doesn't play out of those 7 you mention would be the sacrificial lamb for Otten which at this stage would be Hibberd. If they all get games this week then I'd be moving on either Florent or Simpkin as their output to date hasn't justified their elevated prices so you may as well free up that cash.

      The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 14:36

      Haha..spud factory is spot on SC. Some years you pick 'em and some years you just don't eh?
      Hibberd is the obvious one but I have Berry on the bench too and having Hibberds DPP allows me to swing those two about which I might need to do next week to get Newman.
      So currently Parfiit is in the firing line as i think Pickett and Barret have better JS.
      Which leaves me looking at Florent, Simpkin or Eddy for Houston?

undypuncher · 06/04/2017 at 13:40

So I have hanners and at the start of the week he was out for merret but nownive decided to go with strongdicka to pruessss and hibberd to otten … worried that the koney I make from those tradesni nay lose in handonberrs anyway ….. help?

    Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 13:50

    If it helps, I'm keeping Handonberries. Gotta back in your premos (confidence level = moderate).

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 19:36

    NO, NO and NO. Otvten and Pruess good to have initially but risky trade in targets due to JS imho.

    btw info from a Swans board today – not sure on reliability so…

    "I saw Hanners at the family day on Saturday morning in Melbourne. While most players were up and about walking around the room doing activities etc there were two players on chairs just posing for photos, one of them was Hanners. I noticed while in line waiting for a photo he was constantly rubbing the outside of his knee in between photos. This alone may not seem to concerning but it was the cringe look on his face every time he did it that has me worried. He is still in alot of pain from that gf injury imo."

      Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 10:46

      Thanks you. I think you've nearly sold me not to target for an upgrade ….that does not sound good. I feel sorry for the bloke.

andrew · 06/04/2017 at 13:41

Quick one, have jack steven and no WHE or Marcgbank.

Option 1- steven into backline via dpp for Marchbank and with the money upgrade a non playing fwd rookie for WHE.

Option 2 – Florent into Houston and steven into Rocky

Option 3 – Steven into heppel and get either WHE or marchbank,

Currently have 3 premo defense, 3+nank in forward line, 6 premo fwd (including steven)


    Shenanigans · 06/04/2017 at 21:42


thisisscoman · 06/04/2017 at 13:43

Cam McCarthy out.

All week I've been sold on WHE as a straight sideways swap, but now looking at Miles to generate some cash. Then either bank the cash, or go Hibberd to Marchbank in defence.

Vicki · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

I only have $500 in the bank, so looking at a couple of changes to free up cash.

1/ Hanners to Heppell or Murphy thoughts please. Does anyone think either Heppell or Murphy could be keepers by seasons end?
And with the cash this generates;
2/ Pickett to WHE.

Thoughts please.

    Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 15:56

    Don't like the sound of trading Hanners, if you're dead set on trading him only trade to another absolute premium (Selwood, Bont, JPK etc.)
    You might just have to pass on Hoskin-Elliott.

      Vicki · 06/04/2017 at 16:21

      Thanks Dac. Advice taken on board.

TW3006 · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

Hi team, not hearing a lot about Roo. Now word is he will play this week. If he does he does if he doesn't he doesn't. I am tossing around a risky play of taking Roo to WHE then taking J Smith to Marchbank. Move will leave me over 300k to play with.
Long term strategy obviously but keen on everyone's thoughts.

    Hanners U Tool · 06/04/2017 at 16:02

    Do it if Roo misses! It's probably the last realistic time we 'should' be lopping premos for rookies we missed… After this round it's difficult to allow oneself the luxury of such boldness…

Thomas · 06/04/2017 at 13:44

Bowes – Houston

Smith – Marchbank

Leaves me with 38k. Means Marchbank would be at D4. Although doing this would leave me with 27 trades, as i traded NRoo to Buddy last week.
Thoughts community?

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 15:19

    Keep an eye on teams incase Houston dropped. Looks giid

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:35

    Agree, Houston may be dropped for the showdown

Jeff · 06/04/2017 at 13:46

Pickett to WHE? Only way I can get WHE in. He's looking like a great cash generator and a decent point scorer for the season. Thoughts appreciated

    Jeff · 06/04/2017 at 13:47

    Or I could potentially trade out Eddy for WHE too^

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 15:20

    Great trade. I'd move picket on.

Rick Grimes · 06/04/2017 at 13:47

I prefer trading premo for premo. I'd probably go option 3.

Drop Bears · 06/04/2017 at 13:53

With $220k sitting in my pocket, thinking of popping Swallow up to Oliver and keeping Pepper in my last on-field spot, which will leave me with $100k or so. Thinking he'll likely make money faster and more reliably before upgrading later on.

While I'm at it, have all the rookies (finally one year it all worked!) except Preuss in the ruck… worth flicking Strndica for him to make the money before downgrading him (likely back again) once he's done maturing?

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 14:02

    Pruess got dropped last week. Late call up for Goldy. Even if he plays this week he's only 1 bad week from being dropped again. He's not worth it for mine

      Drop Bears · 06/04/2017 at 14:55

      Pretty well confirmed my gut feel, anyway. Save the trade and keep the loophole. I stick with popping Oliver in for Swallow then.

DavidSA · 06/04/2017 at 14:14

Hibberd > Otten
Pickett > Butler

Can't get WHE
Have Hanners, Hickey and rookie-Bowes giving me headaches but Rookies need to be fixed first.

    Kev · 06/04/2017 at 14:23

    I'm waiting on Newman, who should have decent JS while Rampe is out with a broken arm. Otten's score last week came about because Jenkins was injured

      DavidSA · 06/04/2017 at 14:29

      This Newman a good lad?

Pherso · 06/04/2017 at 14:31

Strndica to witts, parfit to WHE via dpp, Taranto midfield bench?

    HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:46

    Witts to expensive as bench rookie – the other trade works

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:36

    You started with cash in the bank, smart move, I don't mind Witts being on the bench

Curtis · 06/04/2017 at 14:33

Bowes > Butler (on field F6)
Bowes > Witts (on bench R3)

    HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:45

    Butler will get better cash generation, and is better use of your money on the field.

Murray · 06/04/2017 at 14:34

Hi, thoughts on hickey to Witts, then upgrading hibberd or Pickett to WHE

    HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:44

    Yes do it. Hickey not going to get you the points you gambled on (it would seem), whilst Witts will make money and WHE is the must have expensive rookie.

      Murray · 06/04/2017 at 14:51

      That's correct about hickey, I might be proven wrong but I don't think hickey will be a premo ruck. Make the cash with witts, then get a Gawn or goldy

      Murray · 06/04/2017 at 15:00

      Or I could go straight to grundy as I have 85k cash

        Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 15:49

        if you can go to Grundy than thats a no-brainer.

Adam · 06/04/2017 at 14:36

Suggestions Appreciated
*546k in bank
Option 1: Mountford to Heppell
Option 2: J. Smith to Docherty or Adams
Option 3: Pickett/Eddy to any FWD premo (considering Higgins)

    HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:43

    J Smith to Adams for mine.

    Heppell not definitely top 8, doch and adams are, but better value on adams ATM. Forward premo's are yet to be clear, I would hold.

    TBone · 06/04/2017 at 21:04

    smith to adams 100%. he is a premo defender plus has a low breakeven.. win win in my book

Dildor · 06/04/2017 at 14:36

I currently have rookies in

Marchbank, Otten, Hampton (Stewart, Hibberd)
(SPP, Barrett, Parfitt)
WHE, Butler, Taranto (Hannan, Pickett)

Am i okay for no trades at the moment or is there trades that i need to make ie. Houston in for Pickett, Pruess in for Cameron?

This is my first year at SC and im finding it hard to know how im currently sitting especially when it comes to knowing how many rooks i need and when to use trades. Ranked 1664 overall.

    HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:42

    You are looking good at the moment Dildor. I have Houston and Pruess at the moment, but not sure they'll be named this week.

    If Preuss is named and Goldy is back, bring him in.

    If Houston holds his spot, whilst Hartlett and Pittard both come back in the side, then bring him in too (but not if both those other two players aren't named).

      Dildor · 06/04/2017 at 14:46

      Thanks mate, i got conned early in trading eddy to hannan so im hoping hannan gets names and goes big with Hogan suspended so im trying to save trades where i can to make up for an early mistake.

        HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:51

        Hannan could still be a good option, and Eddy is unlikely to remain in the team. Not sure it will be a mistake in retrospect.

HoleyFrijoles · 06/04/2017 at 14:40

Worth trading in Barrett if you don't have him?

Already traded in Marchbank and Hannan last week, and WHE this week. Barrett would go for Mountford is required.

    Sauce · 06/04/2017 at 14:44

    Yes barett is a lock on the bench

Sauce · 06/04/2017 at 14:43

Hold Pickett and fix something else such as getting WHE in or hockey for Nanks or sandi

Peter · 06/04/2017 at 14:49

I can only bring in 2 of WHE, Houston, Butler what 2 should i bring in?? Worried what pittard will do to Houston??

jwill2bong · 06/04/2017 at 14:53

team as it stands:

Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, otten (stewart, hibberd)
Mid: Danger, Treloar, tmitch, fyfe, Crouch, Beams Omera, SPP (Barret, Parfit, Pickett)
Ruck: Sandi, Witts (Pruess)
Fwd: Dahl, Mcrae, Higgins, Nank, Steele, WHE (Butler, Eddy)

Chest: $109,400. Trades left : 29 (havnt used any this week.

Current ranking: 352.

Thoughts please on possible trades this week or am I better waiting. have traded omera to oliver but reversed about 10 times.

Thanks Community!

    Keenbutclueless · 06/04/2017 at 15:33

    No trades required. You have all the rookies nailed. Newman for Hibberd next week.

    TheLoneRanger · 06/04/2017 at 17:55

    Crouch to Z Merrett.

Jim_bob321 · 06/04/2017 at 14:53

Hey Guys.
My trades for this week are as follows…..
Ryder > Nankervis
Bowes > WHE

Have 137k in the bank
What do u guys think?

    Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 15:08

    Back ryder

    dwhits · 06/04/2017 at 16:05

    Nank will generate more cash and likely to average more this season. Depends on your rucks/forwards setup currently

dwhits · 06/04/2017 at 15:03

I made the unfortunate decision to pick Ryder at the start of the year, I know it's early days, but he's not looking the stand out ruckman i thought he might be… My R1 and R2 will be sandinank.

Thinking of trading Ryder for Higgins, who is playing exclusively on the wing/midfield this year and looks fit and healthy. Another trade would be a correctional rookie trade as I don't have Dan Butler or Dan Houston.

Is this a decent trade or should I hold on Ryder until after the rd 9 bye? (100k in the kitty)

Cheers Community

    Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 15:09

    Hold ryder

      dwhits · 06/04/2017 at 15:19


        Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 15:35

        Don't waste trades, ryder will come good you chose him for a reason

          CJay · 06/04/2017 at 15:44

          I am wrestling with the same issue but may go to the Nank for a bit of cash generation.
          J.L.T. The Nank 89 129 89 and then 114 and 124 in the first two rounds against quality ruck men but average teams.
          JLT Ric V Port – Nank 129 and Ryder 66 (with a bit less game time) Significant?
          Ryder should keep improving so may end up a wasted trade but don't think you can go too wrong either way.
          Your choice mate.

            dwhits · 06/04/2017 at 15:54

            I was hoping Ryder to average around that 100-105 mark until I could upgrade. Currently averaging 81 so far.

            Trading to Higgins now means spending 8k on a potentially top 6 forward and letting go of Ryder who may take half the season to shine.

            Decisions, decisions..

              PooBandit · 06/04/2017 at 16:48

              You think Ryder is bad, I picked Hickey… FML…

    Nige · 07/04/2017 at 12:41

    Same issue, Ryder played great last week for a pretty ordinary score… I have him as forward/ ruck back up. Looking like maybe bringing in Nank.

tim · 06/04/2017 at 15:04

some advice for my team would be great community

def: laird, shaw, marchbank, otten, hampton, stewart (hibberd, smith)

mid: danger, selwood, fyfe, hanners, beams, treloar, omeara, swallow (spp, barrett, parfitt)

ruck: gawn, sandi (strnadica)

fwd: dahlhaus, greene, macrae, taranto, steele, butler (eddy, pickett)

$2k in bank

cheers boys

    TheLoneRanger · 06/04/2017 at 17:56

    Hannerbery to Z Merret and Taranto to WHE

    cyrilsmajik · 06/04/2017 at 22:04

    pickett out , parfitt to fwd , hibbard to mid as loophole , newman into def

      cyrilsmajik · 06/04/2017 at 22:06

      hanners out , Taranto to mid , spp on field , buddy into fwd line as VC

Finnius · 06/04/2017 at 15:08

Roughhead to witts and nank daddy in the forward line

    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:36

    Good call … Nanks will outperform Roughy big time and Witts is the path to a premium ruck at R9

Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 15:08

Tim Smith named

    Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:32

    Might not have enough Js to earn you any $$$$$. Hogan out for two weeks

Tommo09 · 06/04/2017 at 15:20

Mountford for Hanaan

Maybe Strnadica to Preuss

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:37

    Thinking the same, Will probably end up doing the first trade and holding the 2nd

Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 15:36

Thoughts on Ryan Burton next week if he goes large again this week?

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:37

    Too much coin

      Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 16:42

      but he is only 20k more than marchbank? plus he is a def/fwd dpp

        Derek · 06/04/2017 at 17:45

        two guys who are on my watch list with stars next to their names. Francis and Burton. Both FWD/DEF DPP. Exceptional talents and a good price.

        my feeling is they will be overlooked for newman, Ryan, Berry long Schenburg when they all get a game soon

        cyrilsmajik · 06/04/2017 at 22:00

        both 2 expensive

    Skindog · 06/04/2017 at 22:01

    Burton will not score like that much more, too awkward a price, going to be a gun, after his injury hs slowly building up and getting more confidence in his abilitys and his body, id stay away,,,

SSD · 06/04/2017 at 15:43

I've got $222,00 in the bank but need to trade out Joel Smith. I have some decent rookies (Taranto, Butler, Turner, Eddy, Hampton, Stewart) and some mediocre rookies (Bowes, Barrett, Pickett, Hibberd). I'm holding plenty of cash as insurance for Sandi & Witts in the ruck with Nankervis as a forwards – plan to trade Witts for Gawn at round 9.
Community should I do a single trade (via DPP) for either WHE or Houston or look to trade both in and chew up 2 trades early?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 17:46

    smith to WHE a no-brainer.

    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:39

    Berry is in for Brissy .. has DPP.. DEF/MID .. worth waiting … hold for now.

Josh · 06/04/2017 at 15:43

With WHE 120 in his scores for two weeks plus job security makes him a great pick, only way I can get him however is to trade Hampton out of defense, move hibbered up and parfit up. The other benefit to this is it allows me to bring in Newman for hibbered next week when on the bubble.

Thoughts on if this is a waste? I will also be getting rid of mountfort for butler by bringing up picket.

Have all the other essential rookies already excluding Hannan who I don't think is essential at all as his Big score will be gone after next week and think it was perhaps an exception to his game rather then a rule

    dwhits · 07/04/2017 at 08:22

    It's probably not good practice to chance structures just to bring in certain players. WHE is handy to bring in but he's not the be all and end all. Hampton will get better and will make good coin as well as have good JS.

    I might be bringing in WHE only if Pickett gets dropped. Otherwise I'm trying to conserve trades.

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2017 at 16:06

Derek old mate Zac got the chop!

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 17:47

    I…..I…….I….. don't know what to say…..

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 18:12

      The Zac at rookie price dream appears over Derek

        Derek · 06/04/2017 at 18:19

        last year was the first year in his whole career that he finished the season at a higher SC price than he started the season with.

        that trend looked like it had reversed this year and he was heading to Rookie Price level.

        i couldn't wait for his name to appear on Barron's Rookie Scout Report!

    sharmanism · 07/04/2017 at 08:36

    Ross is losing his marbles!

Dac Zawson · 06/04/2017 at 16:07

Seems as though Sam Petrevski Seton has little ownership, no questions about him been asked yet.
Does anyone have anything against going SPS to Hoskin-Elliott?

    Vicki · 06/04/2017 at 16:28

    Hi Dac. I'm an owner of SPS. One of 12% of owners. An average of 55 not good enough. Definitely on the chopping blocks. I think WHE can make u more money. Am considering it myself now.

    The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 16:44

    You could see it as a rookie correction trade so if you don't have any bigger problems then it makes sense.
    I'm holding SPS as i think he'll come good.
    He didn't play any JLT so is still finding his feet and he's very highly rated by many.

    Boltons Blues · 06/04/2017 at 17:46

    Played 0 JLT games and was selected for round 1, shows what carlton think of the kid, id hold, will still make you money.

    will take a few more weeks to find his feet

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:18

    I have SPS it's foolish to trade, unless you don't have WHE I suppose, I'd get rid of Pickett first, but I guess you don't have any money.

    He's been starting on field since day one, wait to see other rookies dumped before making anything.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:21

    I have him. Holding for now. Like his job security

Flubber · 06/04/2017 at 16:25

My trades this week:
Sandi –> Witts
Florent –> WHE


    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 16:41

    Id hold FLorent if he plays

      Flubber · 06/04/2017 at 16:55

      44 & 44. At 166k he's not going to make as much as WHE would?

      So you'd suggest missing the WHE train?

        SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 18:10

        I think Florent -> WHE is an ok trade although I understand the coaches who have both doubts on WHE and also want to persist longer with Florent.

        However I wouldn't do it if it also required you to go Sandi -> Witts to find the necessary cash. That really would be an over reactionary trade imo.

          Flubber · 06/04/2017 at 18:38

          I have enough cash in the bank, going Sandi –> Witts is not necessary then? You would keep Sandi in your opinion?

            SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 19:03

            Whilst there may be a little more cash in Witts I don't think it's enough to justify a trade of Sandi imo.

            I won't be trading at all this week even though I could go either Pickett/Parfitt to either Houston/Butler but I just don't think it's worth a trade.

    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:41

    Sandi to Witts = wasted trade. Difference this week about $15k… after that they will be neck and neck.

David · 06/04/2017 at 16:25

Keep Hannebery and hope?
Or Hannebery and smith out for Oliver and Nank in?
Or Hannebery and smith out for Prem Mid and cash cow rookie ie. Pendles / Houston?

    Flubber · 06/04/2017 at 16:34

    Hannebery –> Oliver is a downgrade. Don't do it
    I would go second option. However your main objective this week is to get as many of the rookies that will generate cash! So deal with that first and THEN worry about Hanners

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:23

    I'd bring in nank and a Cash cow if you can. Hanners can go if required.

Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 16:25

Zac Dawson omitted, Spare me , has Ross bumped his head. Five other docker shockers dumped but no names yet, Balic among the ins……

If he doesn't put you back in next week Zac I'd drag out those incriminating photos you must have of ross

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 17:49

    the 1868 owners will be devastated.

    somehow i don't think his % ownership will drop much

      Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 00:57

      I can't believe that he is in so many teams. Does he come from a big family? Maybe a lot of people left someone with a sense of humour in charge of their team and went on holidays. How does auto fill work reverse alphabetical using first names?

Jimbo · 06/04/2017 at 16:44

Omeara to WHE via DPP
Smith to Marchbank

This will mean I'll play SPP at M8 instead of Omeara so still pretty comfortable with that

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:19

    Typical trade that is going on with poverty stricken clubs. I don't like it but hey……

russ · 06/04/2017 at 16:55

Hey guys i have all the rookies except marchbank and WHE
I could just trade taranto to WHE and save my other trade or i could trade roughy to WHE then upgrade smith to marchbank.

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:19

    Trade 2.

INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 16:59

Sounds lik quite a few lads to debut this week. A few should be on the bubble next week. If your not sure about your rookie trades this week HOLD

    hedski · 06/04/2017 at 18:21

    Waiting for teams Pie. Not sure I'll jump on the WHE bandwagon. Agree HOLD.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 20:59

    Solid wisdom from you Pieman

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:24

    Good point. Some rippers named.

    Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 00:53


VARC · 06/04/2017 at 17:00

Have two trades in mind this week but not sure whether to pull trigger on one, none or both:

1. Roughead to Nankervis
2. Taranto to WHE

Never really like sideways trades but feel Nankervis is too good to pass up as a potential F6 and ruck cover, grappling with the Taranto one as I have doubts on WHE scoring well longer term, but will he score better than Taranto over next 4-6 weeks?

Haven't used a trade yet this year, so keen to get your thoughts!

    Tibor · 06/04/2017 at 17:22

    I'd just hold if I were you. The WHE talk this week has been very over the top. Neither of the trades you mention is essential. New rookies starting to filter through and Taranto and rough will be ok. Trades just get more golden as the season goes by and by saving them now you will be very rare as a holder of thirty trades. Those who are trading wildly still have the bye weeks to negotiate, it's a long season

      VARC · 06/04/2017 at 19:09

      Can live without WHE,just worried I'm missing a trick not having banker is,particularly if he ends the year averaging 100,or close to – will Roughy get to that level by year end?

        VARC · 06/04/2017 at 19:09


    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:46

    Roughy to Nankervis is worthwhile … more dosh, more points… but I would only do that corrective trade this week… otherwise stick with Roughy. Nank looks like a Top 8 FWD this season.

BigBuggars SC · 06/04/2017 at 17:03

Hi all, took a punt on Mills (keeper) and Barlow (s.stone), which isn't great at this point. Thinking of Mills > Marchbank or Otten, and Barlow > Murphy. Will Murph be a keeper?

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 17:35

    Will Murphy be a top 10 Mid by the end of the season, I seriously doubt it. 1% chance. Mills to Marchbank for cash sounds good or even Otten. I'd send Barlow to a Danger Pendles Bont type & lock away a top 8 Mid

      BigBuggars SC · 06/04/2017 at 18:35

      Yea INPieman, gotta agree on Murphy – had $$$ in the eyes! Will stick with Barlow for the moment.

    Adam · 07/04/2017 at 07:33


Billy · 06/04/2017 at 17:09

Thinking of trading smith and Taranto to McGrath and Houston for better cash generation just not keen on using the two trades. Any thoughts guys?

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:22

    Terrible. Taranto on bubble and named. McGrath not doing anything spectacular.

Jordan · 06/04/2017 at 17:11

Is it important to make 2 trades this week I can only see myself making one that I will benefit from

    Billy · 06/04/2017 at 17:14

    Save your trades if you don't need too mate

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 18:21

      At this stage of the season you only trade if you have to. If you can't find multiple reasons that will benefit you from a trade don't bother

Bock Choy · 06/04/2017 at 17:38

I need to replace Joel Smith but may wait a week to see how well Newman goes in his second start.

I am balancing the cost of $100k and a precious trade against keeping someone like Parfitt. I will wait to see what the team selections are to better inform this.

Iconic · 06/04/2017 at 17:41

Option 1: J. Smith >> A. Otten + M. Hibberd >> W. Hoskin-Elliot

Option 2: J. Smith >> W. Hoskin-Elliot + L. Strnadica >> B. Preuss

Option 3: J. Roughead >> C. Oliver + J. Smith >> W. Hoskin-Elliot

Also interested to know order of priorities of; A. Otten, B. Preuss, D. Houston, W. Hoskin-Elliot

Cheers Community

    Trader · 06/04/2017 at 17:54


      Iconic · 06/04/2017 at 17:55

      Is it better to just go J. Smith >> W. Hoskin-Elliot and conserve other trades??

    hedski · 06/04/2017 at 18:22

    1 by far

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:23

    Simple. 1

    Non playing players to playing players.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:25

    Def 1. Exact reverse or order named Imo

Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 17:42

HI Community,

I have two trade options for this week and just trying to see what everyone thinks:

Option 1: Trade Hickey for WHE by bringing Nank into my ruck from my fwd line. Use second trade to get rid of Hampton to Oliver by moving Hibberd from Mid bench to Def bench. Would mean id have to play Stewart who is doing the same as Hampton anyway.

Option 2: Just trade Smith from Melbourne to Dan Houston from Port. I can do this by bringing hibberd into the backline from midfield and then moving pickett from my fwd line into the midfield.

Option 1 concerns: Hickey may still have an awesome year and WHE and Oliver could fade
Option 2 concerns: Houston doesnt have great job security

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:27

    Many wouldn't, but I'd go for option 1

Trader · 06/04/2017 at 17:51

I can't believe it Zac Dawson has been given the axe???? Treo doomed for sure now…..what is lyin thinking?

    Trader · 06/04/2017 at 17:53


Paul · 06/04/2017 at 17:54

Joel smith to WHE
Jack steven to Otten


Jack Steven to a premo
Need to get rid of Steven but don't know whether getting the extra cash generation is worthwhile or not

    Jimmy · 06/04/2017 at 17:56

    Not sure about Otten's job security; what about Steven to Wines or if you are looking to make some cash also Murphy, Beams, Heppel, Oliver are all great value.

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:26

    Wines and Murphy are probably short term cash. Don't get fooled.

    Lock in a real keeper (which Steven should've been, sadly a reshuffled midfield with steele may have ruined that)

    Only cheap mids I would risk on are Beams and Oliver, but really you should be lookign at Sloane/Bont/Pendle/Treloar/Fyfe types.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:28

    Agree with smoken

Murray · 06/04/2017 at 18:03

Hi community
Just wondering what do you think is the best option for trade this week

1 trade out hickey and bring in grundy. Or
2 Trade out hickey for witts, and Mountford for WHE via swing. Or
3 Trade hickey and mountford, swing nank into ruck via swing, trade in Higgins and WHE. Or
4Don't trade and hope hickey becomes a premo ruck

Which option would you pick

Thoughts please

    Trader · 06/04/2017 at 18:14


      murray · 07/04/2017 at 08:56

      I agree, this looks the best option

    Finnius123 · 06/04/2017 at 18:17


      Murray · 06/04/2017 at 19:48

      Thanks guys

      Murray · 06/04/2017 at 20:53

      think that might be the way to go

Derek · 06/04/2017 at 18:25

NRoo is back

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 18:26

    Berry and Long… more defence rookies!

    Jib_Jib · 06/04/2017 at 18:27

    Kidding me

      Derek · 06/04/2017 at 18:32

      Simpkin out

        Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 00:58

        Hold Simpkin if you have cover.

        Quad apparently. Reckon he will be back next week.
        Then again I thought NRoo would be out for 6 weeks …

        Not a doctor.

SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 18:33

Houston holds his spot although Pittard doesn't come in. Just Hartlett in for Hombsch for Port.

I'd feel better bringing in Houston this week if Pittard also played so might just hold that trade.

    Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 10:20

    Big cas injection coming from Houston anyway. His Js would depend on his showdown performance, surely they won't throw him to the wolves and make him stand eddy all night Even if they do he might score very well if port get the job done as eddy not known for defensive effort

Don't Blush Baby · 06/04/2017 at 18:34

Holy Rookie explosion !!!

INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 18:39


    Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 18:51

    Will be a few good options from these guys.

    A few that might be in some teams on the extended benches for Sunday though- Barrett, Picket, Macreadie, Miles, Ainsworth, McGrath.

    North name Preuss, Daw & Goldy….

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 19:56

      In the JLT game all 3 played Daw didn't ruck at all

        Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 00:59

        Did you enjoy your hour off pieman

Jib_Jib · 06/04/2017 at 18:42

After toing and froing all week

Hanners to Merrett
Schoenmakers to Houston

May god have mercy on my soul

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:34

    Great trades mate. Hunk zerrett will serve you well.

      Jib_Jib · 06/04/2017 at 23:08

      I've been scratching around all week for a way to bring in Nank. Can't do it unless I downgrade Hanners to someone like Oliver (not happening), or I trade out Roughie instead of Schoenmakers (also not happening).

      Also strongly considered bringing in Pendles instead of Zerrett, but I'll gong to wait for his price to drop a bit before I do.

        Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:01

        Zerret is a good op – but Pendles price won't drop much at all (20-30k at the most). It's fine picking Zerrett now because he will kill it – but just saying pick the one you want the most out of him and pendles and don't count on either of their prices dropping that much or more than the other.

    Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 10:25

    Good decision you are making money and your points will soar. Wow Schoenmakers eh that's a German word for clanger I think, I assume you were drawn in by his bargain basement price. Fair enough but he is a bargain basement player, Lucky you didn't have Zac as well

FEARTHEBEARD · 06/04/2017 at 18:45

Any good midfield rookies to grab instead of taking the risk on Fox?

    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:50

    Berry, but you may want to wait to see how he goes this week… I'm banking on him and Newman to trade out Hibberd or Pickett next week.

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:02

    I would just relax. No-one new is on the bubble just yet so it is useless burning a trade. Hold up and see how everyone plays this week before making a decision

FEARTHEBEARD · 06/04/2017 at 18:45

Is Tarranto still in?

    Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 18:46

    Yes, No changes at Giants.

      FEARTHEBEARD · 06/04/2017 at 18:58

      Thank you.

Rob · 06/04/2017 at 18:49

Hannan or Houston both on the bubble, who to get? Feeling hannan has the better JS with pittard close to returning at port?

    James · 06/04/2017 at 19:20


    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:29

    I like Houston and feel Byrne-Jones will get dumped for Pittard. Just my theory though.

    Simpkin>Houston this week.

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 21:00

    Houston the better option

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:37

    I like Hannan too. They must like him to name him with no pre season. That said Houston is the best cash cow to bring in this week.

redherringfc · 06/04/2017 at 18:51

hi community, i'm in need of some help. i'm going away for a week and won't be able to make any changes until easter sunday. I have Hibberd in defence and need to get rid of him.

i already have otten hampton marchbank and stewart. Any suggestions on a rookie to get who is playing this week, has good JS, so i can throw the E on him, for both weeks.


    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 19:51

    Newman or Berry (DPP)

      Derek · 06/04/2017 at 20:03

      Newman plays Friday

        hedski · 06/04/2017 at 20:32

        Wait a week on Newman

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 22:18

    Return home safely Bond. And don't cause any international disputes.

      redherringfc · 07/04/2017 at 14:00

      Damn, my cover is blown!

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:38

    Berry in this situation.

Tom · 06/04/2017 at 18:54

Hibberd or Smith to Otten
Bowes to Hoskin-Elliott or Houston

Which trade? Hoskin-Elliott is expensive but best j/s, Houston and Otten are 100k cheaper but could get dropped in 1-2 weeks with Pittard and Jenkins coming back respectively

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:41

    All look good. Bowes to WHE this week. Smith to Newman next week. Hibberd to berry the following week. If all goes well for these lads.

    Bock Choy · 07/04/2017 at 13:49

    IMV, WHE's value will pick up by > $100k more than the other rookies making this an easy economic decision.

FEARTHEBEARD · 06/04/2017 at 18:58

Fox still in for swans?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 19:08

    Yep made the cut

Leo · 06/04/2017 at 19:04

Who do i get for McCarthy

    Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 20:03

    ANYONE, but WHE might be a good place to start the search.

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:03

    WHE or Witts if you can use DPP

INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 19:04

The Debutants

Sydney: Jordan Dawson 123.9K Mid/Fwd I've never heard of him. But Horse likes to play the kids! Close eyes on him tomorrow night
Kangas: Sam Durdin: 123.9K Fwd Was a first round draft pick a couple of years ago. Very highly rated junior & good SC scorer as a junior
Cats: James Parsons: 117.3K Fwd Another bloke I've never heard of. But they have named him on the HFF which is encouraging
Dees: Tim Smith 102K Fwd 26 years old & plucked from the VFL. This bloke can play. VFL team of the year last year at CHF
Freo: Harley Balic 123.9 Mid/Fwd Pick 38 from 2015 draft. I thought Freo got a bargain. And your about to see why. Out with a wrist injury last year (can relate)
Freo: Griffen Logue 180.3 Def Pick 8 from last years draft. Awkward price. But he's a great athlete & has a massive tank
Saints: Ben Long NOMCOC 117.3 Def/Fwd Read my article from the preaseason. I rate this kid. Just completed his suspension from the VFL & straight into the Saints team (extended bench)
Lions: Jarrod Berry: 139.8 Mid/Def Unbelievable athlete & massive tank. Named in the GUTS in his first game. Say no more! Nice work Derek on the saved trade
Lions: Hugh McLuggage: 202.8 Mid Fwd. Awkward price. But this kid is a GUN. For mine he should have been pick 1
Blues: Harry Mckay: 123.9K Fwd. Pick 10 from last years draft. Expect Pickett numbers
Bombers: James Stewart: 169.3K Fwd Couldn't get a game in the Giants Fwd line. But this guy is good

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 19:20

    Tremendous summary INP!

    Whilst it's great to have this rookie bonanza right now I just hope we are going to have sufficient rookies for downgrades later in the season as our cash cows fully fatten.

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 19:27

      It's a massive round for rookies in SCA. Throws a real spanner in the works

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 19:20

    Cracking analysis INP!

    Had a bit of a read on parsons plays Def/wing loves to kick the ball very good D/E.

    Whooshka the rooks have arrived!

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 19:26

      Let's just hope not all these guys are on the bubble in round 5! Huge problem

    BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2017 at 19:35

    The rookies have come! Looks good, hoping these guys can get regular games, will make me feel better about myself after not getting Marchbank or WHE.

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 19:59

      There are some tantalising options. I may go early on one this round. Against all the rules. But I don't want to miss out later

        The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 20:06

        Long and Smith will be the ones I'm watching closely.
        Balic too but he plays for Freo so…
        Got Berry on the bench already so looking forward to watching him play.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 20:17

          A couple of juicy DPP's in that lot..

          whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:42

          Yeah looking at Berry mainly. Not sure about others JS and not paying more than 150K.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:42

    Great write up. Cheers.

    Dan · 06/04/2017 at 23:48

    Unsure if Otten can replicate that 108 much more. The crows will have a good season but won't pummel teams every week. Thinking the 45 he got in RD 1 is more about right. Currently BE of -83 I believe so $$ is guaranteed regardless what his output looks like for a few weeks. What are your thoughts on holding a few weeks for the bubble boys verses pulling the trigger on Hibberd now? He won't get games but he won't lose money either (save for an opportunity cost of the likes of Otten).

    Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 01:02

    Will tim smith carry enough Js to be worthwhile Hogan back after two weeks

Whooska!! · 06/04/2017 at 19:07

Hi Jock/Community,

Team is looking strong, sitting inside top 5% but I’m looking to jump onto 2 of the big Cash Cows that I don’t have: Marc Murphy and Dan Houston (combined price rise projected around $130K)…thinking of trading out J.O’Meara and T.Phillips….

Agonising over whether its worth 2 trades, and whether Murph can keep this up.


    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:07

    Don't jump on Murph. In the long run JOM will make more dosh as you aren't forking out an extra 100k at the start in order to get him. I think that they will both end the season averaging around the same anyways. JOM is easing into it and can only get better. I would try and get rid of phillips though – bit of a nothing pick. I would look to get WHE in for him, or if you have him maybe do a DPP switcharoo and get Witts in the ruck. Good luck!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 19:07

Dammit I said trickle not a flood

The rookies have arrived!

Great to see them


With the likes of Berry, Smith, Balic, long, McBags, etc they r all going to be on the bubble in 2 weeks with only 2 trades that is gonna make it tough. Might have to bring one in next week after 1 game if you want more than 2. Hmmmm.

Will see how they go and make a call.

    Captain Risky · 06/04/2017 at 19:16

    Some MIDFIELDERS!! Thank God….

    Jib_Jib · 06/04/2017 at 19:21

    Some will get dropped before making it to the bubble. Some will just be shit. You'll be able to narrow your selection. Good problem to have I say!

    JustAmug · 06/04/2017 at 19:22

    Worth going early on Berry? Named in the guts on debut and looks solid. I've still got J Smith so might make the jump.

      whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:05

      Possibly with his price and swing being large factors. That and brisbane need game time into these guys.

      It's always risky though could score poorly or hurt that knee he's just had surgery on.

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 19:49

    Could be bubbleboy overload in another fortnight which I'm not convinced is such an awesome thing. There are only so many decent rookies to go around in a given season so I just hope we don't blow our collective load too early.

    I plan to hold my trades this week as I can see myself burning 3-4 over the next fortnight with all this rookie goodness on offer.

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 20:11

      Some real gold from that crop. Would be a shame not to be able to get who you want. There is only one way around that. Get ya plumbs out & go early. Massive plumbs. But no more than 1

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 20:13

        If Newman or Hayward go bang again tomorrow night boy oh boy wowee then will have to be very selective.

          whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:41

          There's too many sydney rookies it's confusing me and making me stay away from all of them.

        Derek · 06/04/2017 at 20:15

        Target the DPP's first

        Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 22:47

        Thanks for your call on the cash calves, much appreciated!

    Doc · 06/04/2017 at 20:18

    I got lucky. Had Balic as my donut/captain loophole hoping he'd get a game after the byes.

    Still some cows that haven't debuted, Ryan, Myers etc so no need to panic yet.

    Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 01:13

    Lol Trigg.

    When I posted a couple of days ago about the potential rookie breakouts this round you replied with the exact same thing … A trickle, not a flood.

    Man the dam walls ….

BlueBoy · 06/04/2017 at 19:10

WHE or Houston? I know WHE has better job security but will he maintain his level of scoring at a level high enough to make more cash faster than Houston?

    BlueBoy · 06/04/2017 at 19:16

    Apologies if this has been asked before.

    iLoveNMFC · 06/04/2017 at 20:00

    WHE by a country mile. Houston could be dropped at anytime for Pittard.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:47

    Agree. Gotta be whe

Defying · 06/04/2017 at 19:10

Gday commiunity,

My rookies are looking like this
Defenders: Marchbank, Otten, Hampton, Stewart, Hibberd
Midfield: SPP, Barret, Partfitt, Pickett
Ruck: Witts, Strnadica
Forwards: Houston, Taranto, McCarthy, Eddy.

I am pretty certain i am going McCarthy to WHE. That leaves me with the second trade which I would like to use to get Butler. Which rookie should I chop to bring him in, or I could just trade hibberd to mcGrath.

Thoughts please

    redherringfc · 06/04/2017 at 19:43

    Same problem, i'd like to get butler, but I'm going Hibberd to Newman, but i'll have a look at McGrath and might do that instead.
    I'm sitting on EVW, he keeps getting named as an emergency, hopefully next week.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:48


Matt · 06/04/2017 at 19:11

should i trade lynch or keep him? Help!!

    Defying · 06/04/2017 at 19:17

    Keep him can't be trading premos this early or you will run out of trades

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:40

    He performed better against GWS at spotless this year, than last year.

Jim · 06/04/2017 at 19:13

Trade in WHE or Houston???

    Tophawk · 06/04/2017 at 19:46

    If you have all the other key rookies, neither. Wait and watch the 11 rookies named today. Plenty of opportunities ahead. Hold those trades if you can.

      Jim · 06/04/2017 at 19:55

      Who are the 'other key rookies' you refer to?

        Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 22:51

        Read pieman's post above.

Matt · 06/04/2017 at 19:17

should i trade tom lynch (gold coast) for buddy aswell as strndica for preuss

or trade florent for husking elliot and trade strandica for preuss?

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:39

    Like number two.

    Surprised people who have sterndica are trading though, thought they would've benched cameron/preuss/witts in first place.

Tophawk · 06/04/2017 at 19:22

Wow! Rookies galore!! 11 new faces to debut this week. Perhaps it is time to take the foot off the rookie trade in accelerator right now. Do we now really need WHE at his price of $213K when in a few weeks there could be much better cash generators on offer? One trade only this week. Hall to Nankervis. (DPP) I could have gotten WHE this week by playing a double DPP manoeuvre, but now with little rockets like Balic, Long, Guthrie, etc hitting the park, its time to sit back, watch, and save trades for rookie trade mania in a few weeks. Welcome

    BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2017 at 19:37

    Agree, I'm not jumping on WHE or Marchbank. Main reason is because I cannot get them in without compromising structure but secondly some of these cheaper blokes may make just as much money, if not more.

    uDonkey · 06/04/2017 at 19:43

    For those who can't afford WHE yes I'd hold, but for those who has the cash and Smith with Hibberd in mid I would use that trade to get WHE in.

    WHE has 120 score that will carry for the next two weeks, I'm hoping either Hampton and Florent to score well this week with 155K in the bank in two weeks i can upgrade WHE to a premo and Hampton or Florent to a Rookie on the bubble considering we are blessed with all these rookies popping up.

      Tophawk · 06/04/2017 at 21:05

      I like your thinking mate. I like it a lot. (I do have J Smith and M. Hibberd BTW)

      Might still pull the trigger and grab WHE. Huge season defining decision coming up…

Dan · 06/04/2017 at 19:29

McCarthy to WHE.
Simpkin to Witts or Butler?

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:38

    Don't know your structure to say if witts is worth it, trades look decent though.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 22:54

    Witts is a no brainer if nank in ruck

      whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 23:57

      More like Goldy or Sandi………much more likely to break down than Nank.

Emmo · 06/04/2017 at 19:30

What should i do with parker and treloar?

    Don't Blush Baby · 06/04/2017 at 19:47

    Emmo, I also have both, Keep mate , both could go big tomorrow night

Jordan · 06/04/2017 at 19:31

Shaw down to lloyd
O'meara up to touhy(via McGrath)

Waste of trades???

    Jordan · 06/04/2017 at 19:31

    Because I have a 2-0-6 defence and it needs to be fixed this week

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 19:45

    Totally mate. Just hold your trades. Trading out Shaw will not help your defence out any.

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:37


    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 21:59

    If you have downgrade a premium do it in the line you have overdone I think.

Bells E Bubb · 06/04/2017 at 19:32

Who (if anyone) should I trade for WHE? Roughy, Taranto, Florent, Picket or Parefitt?
Had planned NRoo downgrade but he is named. (Prob wont play to really screw me over).

    Lazza · 06/04/2017 at 20:05

    I reckon Roo won't play this week. Pickett is a dud and Parfitt a slow burner … I'd only trade Roughy if he was part of a double trade to also enabe you to get rid of a donut rookie.

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:36

    Pickett>WHE is a no brainer if you have the bank

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:49

    Agree with spoken. Picket.

Scyb · 06/04/2017 at 19:55

should i hold or trade gazza?

    INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 20:01


    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:36

    Depends on your team, if it's totally crap you need some of the guys going well.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:49


harry · 06/04/2017 at 19:55

whats everyones thoughts on pickett? am i the only one who thinks he needs to go??

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 20:03

    I'm holding him for now. There will be some decent bubble boys arriving over the next fortnight so if he can't produce a decent score by then I'll look to move him on at that point. Even if I can eek out say $30-50K from him that would at least be something.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/04/2017 at 20:07

    He's a slow burn but will Play each week.

    With all the rookies coming in this week just plonk him on the bench for a couple of weeks and then look at using him to a bubble boy. Should make u some Cash.

      whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:35

      He's on extended bench and will be dropped imo. Won't play every week.

      SPS on the other hand………..

Fox · 06/04/2017 at 19:58

Thoughts on Jake Lloyd? Potential keeper?

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:34


    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:00

    Looks like a keeper

INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 20:03

Anyone that Held NRoo. Well done. You've been rewarded for your patients. And you have an advantage over the people that traded him out

    Don't Blush Baby · 06/04/2017 at 20:18

    Agree, but being a Sunday game , I'd be wary of a late out though

      INPieman · 06/04/2017 at 20:38

      This week or next he will be back shortly

    Tophawk · 06/04/2017 at 20:51

    I agree! The patient, being NRoo, has been rewarded for his swift recovery.

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 20:54

    I tried to warn people lol

    Youngy · 06/04/2017 at 21:04

    Can't believe he is back so soon

    To those who took my advice and traded him my apologies

      Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:25

      Nothing to apologize for mate, all the so called 'experts' were saying up to 6 weeks out, that's enough to scare anyone into trading.

    Neverweaken · 07/04/2017 at 10:29

    I used him for a corrective trade for Adams. I'm happy with that. Even if he plays. I will treat with suspicion for a few weeks.

John · 06/04/2017 at 20:11

Is it worth going Pickett to butler

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 20:13

    You could do that but I won't be.

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:34

    If it was to WHE or marchbank and one trade using cash, heck yeah.

    uDonkey · 06/04/2017 at 20:52

    Pickett is named BE of 8 small cash generation protected to up by 10k. I'd hold wait for the next batch of Rookies to bubble in a week or two.

      uDonkey · 06/04/2017 at 20:52

      Projected to go up by 10k*

    Travo · 07/04/2017 at 12:10

    That's the only trade I have made. Might reverse if Pickett is going to play.

Dane · 06/04/2017 at 20:15

Is it worth getting WHE in or waiting on some of these new rookies that have been named this week?

    Jim · 06/04/2017 at 20:52


HB prince · 06/04/2017 at 20:16

Whats the community's thoughts?

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:50

    WHE and Butler

hedski · 06/04/2017 at 20:26

Soooooo…..not jumping on WHE but keen to get Houston, its outta Pickett or Parfitt, Pickett playing Sunday is swaying me. (No trades done yet).
Hold??? Not sure I can.

    The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 20:56

    I ditched Parfitt Hedski, not much between them but I think Carlton are more likely to keep playing the kids.
    Flip a coin mate.

      hedski · 06/04/2017 at 21:17

      Yeah it's landing on its side, might do nothing, lots coming thru.

        Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:23

        Doing nothing could be a masterstroke this week Hedski, as you said, lots of cows coming few trades. WHE can still end up being the spud he always was.

TurtlesTerriers · 06/04/2017 at 20:26

Some great reading above. My problem. Can either go Pickett and Guthrie to Houston and marchbank. Or. Just Pickett to WHE. I'm thinking WHE has better job security but so does Marchbank. Thoughts

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:32

    Like trade 1, I reckon Pickett is gone this week anyway.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:51

    Agree. Option 1

Mitch · 06/04/2017 at 20:30

Smith –> WHE (Through hibberd and parfitt swing)
Treloar –> Nankervis (through Pickett swing)
I know, I know there is no need to trade Treloar he is going to rise again, if he has dropped at all, HOLD what are you thinking.
But, I have been doing my research. A trade is worth around 150k.
I believe Nankervis (Nank the Tank) is going to be a top 6 FWD and that RUCK DPP looks juicy as well.

There are 4 things that are of consideration in a trade-
1. Cost of a Trade
2. Gain or Loss of Points
3. Cash Generation
4. Structural change

Therefore I am trading a Premo for a Premo whilst pocketing the 150k.
Gaining 150k (cost of a trade) whilst not losing any points.
Treloar has the greatest Breakeven in my team and I believe there may be better Mid Premos in the future.
The structural change doesn't affect me either because Macrae can just go in the Mid and feel the gap.
Please let me know if this is totally crazy or if there is actually some good to this.

    hedski · 06/04/2017 at 20:37

    Just hold Treloarsome.

      Don't Blush Baby · 06/04/2017 at 20:42

      Agree, hold Treloar as I am, hopefully a keeper to the end ,good luck

        Richo · 07/04/2017 at 04:09

        I concur

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:02

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 23:04

    Find someone else…AT was in so many community teams because they think he will overtake pendles. (Not me though). Trade a midpricer and improve your structure! Ie more premos. I think you are costing yourself points with this trade. Perhaps 10 to 15 p/g.

      Mitch · 07/04/2017 at 10:21

      Thanks community love your feedback and will take it into account.

Jack · 06/04/2017 at 20:31

119k left. Don't have Butler, Housten, WHE, Stewart
Really need some advice. Hibberd and JSmith are not playing and H-Smith I think misses one week. Barrett and Pickett still to be named.
DEF: Shaw, Tuohy, Adams, March, Otten, Hampton (Hibberd, J Smith)
MID: Pendles, JPK, Danger, Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara, Swallow, P-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, H-Smith)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi (Strndeca)
FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Rough, Nank, Eddy, Taranto (Parfitt, Hannan)

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:52

    Picket to whe

Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 20:32

Hey guys, thoughts on trading Joel Smith > Jarrod Berry and chucking him straight on the field for Otten? Also have Stewart, Hampton
I know it's risky I'm currently rank 1900 would love feedback!!

    whatyasmokin · 06/04/2017 at 20:43

    I don't mind that honestly. Bold move.

      Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 21:04

      No emergency loophole either

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:11

    Not sure why you'd put a first gamer on for Otten who scored 108 last week, after filling in as back up Ruck after Jenkins went down, and is still he'll be second rucking again this week with Jacobs. Understand Smith to Berry, but not having him on over Otten, and also, maybe see how Newman goes this week before you bring in Berry?

      Imgonnalose · 06/04/2017 at 21:17

      Thanks for the reply Russ – I still have Guthrie so can still bring in Newman if need be

        Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:20

        No worries mate, I'll be keeping an eye on Berry too, cause Smith still needs to go for me. Maybe Balic in for Hibberd too if he looks good 🙂

Oliver · 06/04/2017 at 20:37

– Taranto + WHE

Need help with my second trade since I want to trade out a rookie not playing but also looking to bank some cash with -Sandi + Witts (feeling risky)

– (Hibberd/Mountford) or – Sandi + Witts

Current team:

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 23:10

    Mountford to butler

      Oliver · 06/04/2017 at 23:50

      Mountford isn't a DPP. I'm assuming butler = Dan Butler from Richmond. Am I missing something?

        mich · 06/04/2017 at 23:56

        Move Picket to the midfield and dan butler to Fwd

          Oliver · 07/04/2017 at 00:00

          Thanks mate! I was trying to figure out how to actually do that trade in the trade screen.

Whitey · 06/04/2017 at 20:55

Is Marchbank a must have? He would be my D4 and would have to play Stewart and would have no bench cover this week if I don't grab him. Thinking about saving the money and grabbing Newman next week,

Thanks in advance guys.

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:33

    He's not a total must have, but he's been very nice to have so far, and considering how much the ball is in Carlton's backline and will be all year, and that he's averaging 89 after 2 games, a lot of keeper backmen only average around that.
    He's my D4 and he's staying there until his points start going south.
    He seems to have a pretty friendly breakeven going forward too, so he'll make some serious cash.

      Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 22:10

      has great JS as well. He will play 22 games this year unless he gets injured

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:05

    Trade him in. He's great.

Affa · 06/04/2017 at 21:02

WHE and Marchbank in and Hampton and Barrett out. Can't afford to offload cheaper rookies

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:04

    Why would you not have started with them if you had that cash……..

    200K each roughly and good JS not to mention being in AFL system for years.

Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:03

I ended up reversing my trades this week, I had gone Roughy to Witts and then swung Nank into the fwd line, and Pickett to WHE.
Is it a crime to miss out on Witts before he jumps in price? Will WHE's scoring come back to Earth?
I could afford to go Pickett to Witts, just.
What do you guys think?

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:45

    Don't do anything idiot…save your trades! 🙂

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 23:13

    Pickett to witts is best. Save those trades. Rough should outscore whe.

      Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:07

      Cheers Random….I ended up just doing that one, Pickett to Witts. Still have 29 to go .

The Ranger · 06/04/2017 at 21:06

I'm thinking I'll put Hannebery on the pine with an E on him and Berry onfield.

    hedski · 06/04/2017 at 21:20

    Ha ha. VC buddy for sure this week.

Jamie · 06/04/2017 at 21:12

What rookies are actually worth burning a trade to get in this round? I currently have marchbank, otten, hampton, Stewart, hibberd, Powell pepper, Barrett, parfitt, mountford, strndica, hoskin Elliot, Taranto, housten and eddy.

At this stage I'm only going to swing Taranto to mid and trade in butler for mountford. The only other trade I'm considering is strndica who I originally had in as my standard loophole option but in a year where rookie cash generation looks tough I'm thinking of going to pruess. Is this a waste of a trade? Are there any other rookies that you would consider must haves?

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:18

    I think Strndica to Preuss is a good move Jamie, he'll make money and will continue to play, you can still use Hibberd as loop.

relton · 06/04/2017 at 21:20

is WHE a must like everyone is making out? it just doesnt sit well with me.

    Mitch · 06/04/2017 at 21:27

    At this rate you could presume he would score at leaat 80 which would make him go up 150k in 5-6 weeks which is decent. Plus his point scoring and job security make him a nice comfortable player who you don't have to worry about (unlikely to pull out a 20-30 like 1st year rookies).

      Mitch · 06/04/2017 at 21:28

      150k around round 5-6

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:09

    Follow your instinct. Be a massive pod not to have him.

Macklemore · 06/04/2017 at 21:23

Is it worth trading out Strnadica for Pruess? Will make quick cash and can swap back after hopefully he makes 100-150k, or is a waste of 2 trades?

Dasha · 06/04/2017 at 21:23

is it worth trading out florent and pickett/parfitt for whe and houston/butler???

    Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 22:03

    I'd say yes

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:10

    I would. Could argue the pros and cons for holding and trading though.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:06

    Florent and Pickett out imo.

bob the builder · 06/04/2017 at 21:26

Trading Smith to Otten leaves me with 8k?
Is this enough or should i trade rough to WHE for more cash generation?

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:10

    Think the first trade is the go.

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:47


Richo · 06/04/2017 at 21:32

If you had to put a dollar value on one trade what do you think the cost would be….50k 100k 150k
I reckon its 100k
Traded out Strnadica to Preuss…. Preuss to make the cash back. ? ? ?
My team has all the right rookies.
Wasted trade or not?

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 21:48

    It's hard to quantify but for me I've always thought of it as closer to $150K at least in terms of trades concerning cash generation.

    Whilst Preuss had an impressive game it was without Goldy in the side so he could go back to being a 40-50 scorer. Also we can't forget that Preuss was omitted last week and only got a last second reprieve when Goldy rolled that ankle at training. So it's totally possible he could be playing for Werribee next week if he has a quiet game and the Giants belt the Kangas.

    So I would only look at it if you already have all the other "good" rookies like you have and don't have Nank/Ryder in your forward line and therefore wrecking your swing set with Straindick by bringing Preuss in.

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 22:19

    need to increase team value by $3.5mil using 20 trades by round 14.

    Roughly that's $175k

      Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 23:21

      Yes but the value of a trade was clearly not much last week….

        Derek · 07/04/2017 at 08:34

        They are all the same

    poloko48 · 06/04/2017 at 23:37

    Preuss vs Mummy this week – watch out!

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:07

    Trade is worth 150K minimum.

    Preuss gonna cost you two trades anyway if you wanna pocket the profit.

    Good luck.

    Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 01:24

    What dollar value do you have as Strnadica as your loophole/ swing ruck going forward ?

    Richo · 07/04/2017 at 04:03

    Great feed back gang.
    After reading the responses i feel you are all correct. It will end up costing me two trades/ loopholes ect ect.
    Might have gone trigger happy on trades after seeing the sides announced….
    Reverse trade has been activated.
    Good luck this week

TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2017 at 21:32

Only non playing rookies are Hibberd, Smith and Cameron but unfortunately have only $3,000 in the bank which means no wriggle room.

Is it worth going Hibberd to Butler or Preuss via multiple DPPs? I want to help cash generation but not sold on breaking my structure.

I did consider Roughy > WHE but I'm playing the long game and saving that trade, despite the oppulent amount of cash it brings in

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:12

    I'd go Hibberd to Butler.

Jim · 06/04/2017 at 21:35


    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:43

    Allllllllrighty then.

harry · 06/04/2017 at 21:36

to squueze in houston i will have to cut either eddy, pickett or parfitt. please help!

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:48


    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:13

    Agree with Russia. Picket out.

      FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:13


        Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:44

        Dos Vedaniya! 🙂

Declan · 06/04/2017 at 21:40

Which 2 trades would you do this week? Is it worth getting rid of Darcy cameron for preys who will make $$ quickly or downgrading hanners to Murphy who I believe will average over 105 and that trade leaves me with 370k in bank allowing me to trade those rooks straight to premo.The picket/parfitt gibbered would result in no rookie dpp in fwd line and hibberd is currently named in the mid. If hibberd was traded out mid bench would be parfait picket and hibberd. Which 2 trades should I do for this round before price rise community? Thanks

Hannebery- Murphy leaves 370k in bank
Picket/parfitt/hibberd – butler
Darcy Cameron – Preuss

    Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 22:02

    if you really want to get rid of hanners i'd do the first and second trading out pickett

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:15

    Hanners to Murphy and picket to Butler.

TigerMan · 06/04/2017 at 21:50

Jarrod Berry named in the centre this week for his Debut. I think he's a better player than Marchbank already. Berry led the way for the Lions in their 26 point win over the Sydney Swans reserves with 29 disposals and 12 marks. Could be a sneaky Risk vs Reward trade in this week

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 22:21

    Everyone will have him in two weeks.

      Rocksta · 06/04/2017 at 22:36

      If he's any good. If he isn't, Tiger Man wasted a trade!

      Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 01:27

      Yep. But you didn't waste a trade.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:09

    Don't get me wrong I reckon berry will great and I will lock him in on bubble probably.

    But better than Marchbank? Weird call.

Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 21:53

Hey community,
I've got a few options this week:
1) Taranto>WHE
2) Taranto>WHE and Roughead>Grundy
3) Taranto>WHE and Roughead>JJ/Lloyd/adams
4) Roughead>WHE leaving me with $382k

for my 2nd trade in options 1 and 4 is it worth trading strnadica to preuss or Witts?

thanks in advance

    Shinboner · 06/04/2017 at 22:02

    WHE isn't going to 100+ every week Sully. Beware chasing last weeks points

      Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 22:24

      i'm not expecting him to. he will earn me more money that taranto will and possibly score more or very similar to roughead

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:17

    Option 3 to adams looks great.

      Sully321 · 06/04/2017 at 22:31

      I do like 2 and 3 as I think they improve my team short and long term. I really like Grundy as well as adams. (this is coming from a Carlton supporter)

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:12

    3 If anything at all.

    Do you really need to ditch Taranto?

    Think the Roughy trade to defensive keeper is superior.

TigerMan · 06/04/2017 at 21:54

I Feel sorry for everyone that had Roo and traded him out He's Named this week

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:17

    Cheers man.

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:19

    They'll be ok, there was sufficient scaremongering for most people who had him to trade him out, he still has another 2 games before his price goes up or down though.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/04/2017 at 23:21

    Thanks really appreciate it.

    Carl · 07/04/2017 at 00:18

    Thanks tiger man appreciate it. He'll probably kick 10 vs Brisbane this week too just to rub it in. Why did I doubt the great man?!

Kane · 06/04/2017 at 21:56

I have s.mkernan, scoring well but i think leuimburgz back in. What to do

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 21:58

    No need to do anything, maybe hire a spelling tutor?

      Kane · 06/04/2017 at 22:00

      Does that cost trades?

      whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:13


    Shinboner · 06/04/2017 at 21:59

    Hold McKernan i reckon. Get the dollars generating and trade him in a few weeks for a Lock Ruckman. Dont waste them trades mate

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:09

    Mckernan's a Fwd and Leuenberger's a Ruck, Mckernan could still score well not being number one ruck, he'll still be backup would score from goals and marks with the added bonus of hitouts to advantage etc…ruck stuff.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 22:18

    I'd bench him and trade him out when breakeven becomes positive.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:14

    Trade him right now when he is projected to go up 50K. That's a smart move don't ya reckon?

      Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:20


NewtoSC · 06/04/2017 at 21:58

Sorry guys, new to SC. How do I reverse trades?

    SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 22:03

    Look for the "reverse changes" link – on the left hand panel in a PC/Mac browser.

      NewtoSC · 06/04/2017 at 22:56

      Thanks for your reply SC, any idea how to do on an IPad?

        SCaddict · 06/04/2017 at 23:02

        Yes just click on the arrow in the very bottom right corner of your team page. The reverse changes option will then pop up.

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 23:01

    Or on your mobile there is a little icon bottom right corner when in the team page. It's arrow like in appearance. When touched this brings up a list of advanced options. Select reverse trades there. Took me half a bloody season to figure that out.

cyrilsmajik · 06/04/2017 at 21:58

ruff 2 budwah VC

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:16

    Right on Gangsta.

    But nah I'd get Nank, and I'd vice captain him like I am.

    (But I only have Cameron sydney to loop)

Glen · 06/04/2017 at 22:09

Is it worth trading (H-Smith, Barrett or Picket) via DPP put Hibberd in Mids and get in Stewart in DEF
Then Hibberd out bring Parfitt to mid and bring in WHE?

    FCAbel · 06/04/2017 at 23:02

    Why not. Good trades.

    Pinger · 06/04/2017 at 23:44

    Without knowing what your whole team looks like you could just trade GHS to WHE (move Parfitt to mid)

    Wait & see if Barrett & Pickett are named for the Sunday games & also how Newman goes against the Pies before deciding on the Hibberd to Stewart trade.

    Newman may be good option for Hibberd next week or possibly Berry for Hibberd the week after.

      Glen · 07/04/2017 at 07:29

      My defence is Shaw, Adams, Tuohy, March, Hampton, Otten (Smith, Hibberd)
      I don't have cover there on the bench. Do I need to make sure i offload Smith or Hibberd as a second trade?

        Pinger · 07/04/2017 at 09:34

        I would trade Smith before Hibberd

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:18

    H smith injured. Good time to offload him to WHE

      Glen · 07/04/2017 at 07:31

      See above with my defence, just working out 1 or 2 trades with my bench.
      Maybe GHS to WHE
      Smith to Stewart this week

      Wait for Hibberd next week?

Shinboner · 06/04/2017 at 22:15

G'day community, i hope you all are having a ripping start to the season.
Trades: Corrective trades like covering injured Melbourne rookie J.Smith i can understand but the rage trading that is evident at Round 2 always amazes me.
There are so many variables that will come into play throughout the entire season that we must be careful jumping on blokes that have had 2 good games and will likely provide a price rise. Same goes for jumping off players because there BE is a bit large this week eg: Heath Shaw.
If you cock up trading out Trelour, Hannebery, Kennedy and are considering there season total to be less than Nank, Steele, WHE you need to look at things from a differant perspective. Its a long season fellas. Many of the premos that are being discussed as throw aways now will be right up there in the top 10's by the end of the year.
My experiance is chasing points and wasting trades in my earlier cracks at Supercoach derailed me and destroyed my team a couple of times.
Take my advice or don't. Those that have learned the hard way can relate, and those that have not learned enough soon will. cheers lads

BeaglieBoyy · 06/04/2017 at 22:18

My team is perfect right about now….very happy, all 30 are named to play. All my rookies are about to start fattening up….no trades for me for the next 2-3 rounds, barring injuries of course. Can't see any trades that need doing (Brought in WHE for Florent this week as my only trade.

Laird Simpson Shaw Marchbank Otten Hampton (Stewart, Newman)

Dangerfield Merrett TMitchell Fyfe Treloar Beams O'Meara SPP (Taranto, McGrath Barrett)

Witts Sandilands (Preuss)

Dahlhaus Macrae Higgins Nankervis Hoskin-Elliott Butler (Hannan Eddy)

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:17

    Nice team! Would have sucked having Laird/simpson/shaw as your premo backmen this week though….

      BeaglieBoy · 07/04/2017 at 17:00

      yeah….but my mids feds and rucks did well…so not too bad a week

    really? · 07/04/2017 at 18:46

    so you just bragging?

Stinga · 06/04/2017 at 22:19

Trade in Mitch Hannah for Jarrod Pickett? Not sure whether i should be doing these rookie side way trades. Scored well in round 2 also but thinking off the extra cash that Hannan will make over Pickett.

    BeaglieBoy · 06/04/2017 at 22:30

    Yeah…..My team is 2-3 posts down…..was thinking of going Taranto to Ainsworth…..but the rewards seem very negligible compared to giving up a precious trade….I would hold off on that one myself

    Rocksta · 06/04/2017 at 22:33

    Rd 3 is all about Rookie corrective trades to insure you make the most cash in the least amount of time.As such, it isn't a sideways trade.
    So the philosophy is okay, but I don't know about going to Hannan

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:16

    Not a fan of this. Hannan isn't the most secure rookie to be going for. I would be holding pickett as he is on the bubble and playing this week. Wait for his price to go up and then jump on the newest rookies IF he gets dropped. We don't have enough trades to be doing ones like this

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:18

    Nah not worth it.

Stevie · 06/04/2017 at 22:21

Josh bloody caddy… don't know why I picked him last minute, anyone else have the caddy problem?

Only way out I can see now is trading down to either Higgins, Elliot yoyo or maybe wingard

Trade or hold firm? I can't decide…

    Rocksta · 06/04/2017 at 22:28

    Josh Caddy is at his 3rd Club and isn't even 25 yet.
    Does that tell you something………….He isn't very good!

    If you have Taranto, I say downgrade to Houston and Updrage Caddy to a true Premo

      Rocksta · 06/04/2017 at 22:29

      'Upgrade' even

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:19

    Higgins, Yo Yo or Wingard. Not sure you're going to learn 🙂

    Dahlhaus, McCrae, Steele?

    Maaaaybe Higgins I guess.

AwesomeX · 06/04/2017 at 22:24

Thoughts Community…

Joel Smith > Tom Stewart

and just use the 1 trade


Roughead to WHE
Joel Smith > Ryan Burton

and use up an extra trade?

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:32

    My thought is, don't do any of those things, at least until after Burton plays this week, and you see how all the other rookies debuting this week go. Prices go up after a player has played 3 rounds, which means if you want to get em in, do it after the second week if you're happy with them.

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:15

    Option one isn't the worst / however I would just wait for Newman to hit the bubble and then jump on him – looks much more supercoach relevant than TOm Stewart

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:21



Lenny · 06/04/2017 at 22:34

Need a forward around 450 – 400 (already have Higgins)
Thinking Yeo but not 100 percent convinced, suggestions?

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:13

    Jack Steele / Roughy

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:21

    Nank, Steele. Or forget it?

    Buy rookies.

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:32

    Touk Miller?

Trentb76 · 06/04/2017 at 22:35

Somebody please tell me I'm doing the wrong thing. I started first year ever without Pendles and chose treloar instead. With treloar expected to drop, and pendles to gain, am I crazy using a trade to get who I should really have in my side,and worse still, sideways trade a promo?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 22:51

    Great idea. Trade Simmo to Docherty as your second trade. Simmo had a shocker and has to go.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:23

    lol Treloar set to lose a whopping 18K. Keep chasing those points young padawan.

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:29

    1: Yes you would be crazy to do that.
    2: I don't know what a promo is.
    3: Be patient and you'll be able to pick up Pendles at some point, it's a long season, with many injuries etc.

    Juzzy · 07/04/2017 at 01:42

    Chill Mate.

    Eddie McGuire will teach Adam how to kick soon and he will be supercoach gold.
    P.S. I wouldn't make that trade after 2 rounds. I don't have him but I think the kid will come good and embarrass a few that traded him out.

    Trentb76 · 07/04/2017 at 07:09

    Excellent. Just the sort of shit hanging and abuse I would hope for thinking such a thing. I have this niggling worry treloar will have a reoccurring shoulder problem and start costing me weeks. I will sit on my hands for now. Thanks community

Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:38

The Masters has started!…bugger the Footy lol

BeaglieBoyy · 06/04/2017 at 22:39

Houston or Butler

McGrath or Otten

which 2 to put on the field community?

    Russ in W.A · 06/04/2017 at 22:49

    I'd say Houston and Otten, cause adrenaline will be running high in the Clash of the Adelaides, and Otten will be back up rucking again.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:25

    Agree with Russ.

Jack · 06/04/2017 at 22:50


Def: adams, laird, shaw, rance, stewart, hampton (hibberd, vickers-willis)
Mid: dangerfield, martin, heppell, fyfe, JPK, beams, o'meara, spp (barrett, parfitt, brodie)
Ruck: nankervis, sandilands (preuss)
Fwd: franklin, dahlhaus, roughead, taranto, houston, butler (eddy, bowes)

$68,300 left, 2 trades this round

Need to trade in WHE. Thoughts on trades?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 23:22

    Brodie to WHE

MikeyC · 06/04/2017 at 22:55

Hi community, need some serious advice, this is doing my head in!

Have the following non-performing tools: Smith (ink), Hibberd (not playing), Horlin Smith (not playing), Parfitt (low scores), Pickett (low scores), Florent (low scores) and Taranto (low scores)

Want to get a few in: Otten ($), WHE ($), Newman (JS), Houston ($) and Oliver (stepping stone).

Which 2 do i prioritise to cull? And which 2 to get in? I have spare $… thanks!!

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 23:21

    Smith OUT

    Hibberd will get another chance and his DPP is handy to swing players around

    H-Smith. Expensive I'd look to trade him to a cheaper rookie

    The rest I would hold. All are playing, all are on bubble and will make cash, but only need one big score to make a heap of coin.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:27

    Mate, Horlin Smith is only out for a week with a minor fractured finger. He'll be back and has a solid midfield role.

    He also scored 78 in his last game I'd hardly call him a non-performing tool.

    You need to get rid of your real problems……poor picks by an non-performing coach.

Big week · 06/04/2017 at 23:02

Bowes to Buttler
Starnadica to Witts ( still get cash generation similar to having WHE, more of a pod to everyone going WHE)
Bowes to WHE ( go with the masses, WHE must have and better than having 200k rookie on bench)

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:13


      Big week · 07/04/2017 at 07:40

      Thanks Finnius.
      Yeah thinking the same. Only one trade opposed to the two.

George · 06/04/2017 at 23:08

Hi all- I'm really confused. What do you think of……
Mills to Marchbank and
Picket to WHE?

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:12

    Not the worst idea. Mills probably a wrong pick and you are getting the two 'must have' rookies atm

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:28

    I like it, could be a season changer and it will not be the same next week if you miss.

Iconic · 06/04/2017 at 23:24

W. Hoskin-Elliot or D. Houston

Is WHE really necessary? If Houston plays he will earn more cash and leave me with an extra $100k in the kitty

Thoughts much appreciated as always

    Iconic · 06/04/2017 at 23:48

    Should clarify that is $150k left if D. Houston compared to $45k if WHE

      Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:12

      WHE has a lot more JS. Up to you to decide whether that is worth forking out the extra dosh

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:29

    Houston could be dumped next week.

    Might not get dumped at all. Risk.

Mitchell · 06/04/2017 at 23:36

who do I trade? Parfitt or Pickett?

    Derek · 06/04/2017 at 23:43

    Hold them both. On the bubble and will make cash.

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:11


    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:34

    None, unless you have a very good reason, but you've given us no details.

    So from me you will get a generic response of DO NOT WASTE TRADES!

      Mitchell · 07/04/2017 at 09:00

      Should have mentioned it's to get WHE. Can do it with 1 trade and haven't used one thus far

Joseph · 06/04/2017 at 23:39

My Gold subscription seems to have expired. I can't find the renew subscription link on the site. I'm using a tablet.
Anyone else renewed recently?

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:11

    Yeah I did. Should be at the bottom of your home page. They are gonna try and get you to renew it so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Kane · 06/04/2017 at 23:39

WHE or Witts?

    Finnius123 · 07/04/2017 at 00:10

    Both if you can. Toss of a coin – just depends what is gonna help your structure best.

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:12

    I went Pickett to Witts, I reckon WHE could still turn into a giant spud, Can't see Nicholls or Currie taking Witts spot, Nicholls is injury prone and Currie is 28 and hasn't played that many games, so I'm backing Witts in to be number 1 at Gold Coast.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:31

    You benching Witts or using him?

    Who you trading?

    No details feels like you're doing something bad.

Jordan · 07/04/2017 at 00:04

assuming they have they had the same job security who would score higher.. butler, houston or hannan

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:17

    It's impossible to tell at the moment Jordan, all three have shown promise and have scored well in at least one game.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:33

    Roll a dice with 1-2 butler, 3-4 houston and 5-6 Hannan.

Defying · 07/04/2017 at 00:18

Is Taranto/Eddy to Butler worth it or a waste of a trade.

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 00:26

    I think so, Taranto and Eddy could easily outscore Butler this week. Better to trade a non playing or crap scoring rookie to a potential good one. Common sense really.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 00:32

    It's terrible.

Stupid Coach · 07/04/2017 at 06:07

Greetings Community. Have made no trades so far and have $68k in the bank. Options:
1. Roo to Buddy and Smith to Otten. This was my initial choice but not sure since Roo has been named (still sceptical that he will play).
2. Trealor or Ward to BONT and Smith to Otten.
3. Roo to Buddy and Trealor or Ward to BONT.
4. Smith to Otten and Mountford to another rookie e.g. Barrett (already have SPP, Pockett, Butler and Eddy).

Any comments much appreciated.

    Qwert · 07/04/2017 at 06:54

    4…Roo and Treloar will serve you well in long run. Smith to Otten and save the 2nd trade until next lot of rookies come through and use Mountford as captain loophole.

Plumdusty · 07/04/2017 at 06:23

Should I drop Lych(GC) for WHE?

    Jono · 07/04/2017 at 07:40

    Thinking same trade

Jono · 07/04/2017 at 06:43

Thinking T Lynch down to WHE bank the coin and look to upgrade another premo in the later weeks???

    Qwert · 07/04/2017 at 06:51

    Good option.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:26

    Why? he scored less last year vs GWS at spotless.

Qwert · 07/04/2017 at 06:51

Trade Jack Steven or hold?

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:27

    Tough call. Only to Sloane/Pendles/Treloar/Fyfe/Rocky type player.

    ie Guaranteed premo/uber premo.

jez_m · 07/04/2017 at 08:00

Question: Is it worth trading J. Smith out for Houston, even if it means I lose my FWD/MID swing with my rookies? Will have Parfitt, Pickett on my mid bench and Eddy and Houston on my fwd bench

    dwhits · 07/04/2017 at 08:27

    There wil Jordan Dawson MID/FWD & Harley Balic MID/FWD on the bubble in a couple of weeks time if you can wait

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 08:39

    There will be others

    I fear for houstons JS

      jez_m · 07/04/2017 at 08:58

      Even with Hombsch now out for a month? Not the same type of player I know, but that must help a little?

      neil Demons Delight · 07/04/2017 at 11:37

      any of the newbies got better J S than Houston Don't have him myself waiting for BERRY ON THE BUBBLE

dwhits · 07/04/2017 at 08:18

Ryder >>> Witts

And what's everyone doing with Pickett? If he's in the 22, we hold?
If he gets dropped, I'm tempted to go Pickett >>> WHE or Butler…

I only slept for 3.5 hours thinking about it last night.. plz halp

Thanks in advance you bunch of legends.

    Declan · 07/04/2017 at 08:38

    I would say go Picket to butler

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 08:43

    Unless Ryder is injured. Hold Ryder, he is doing really well considering he has missed a lot of footy.

    Witts is a waste of 2 trades.

      neil demons delight · 07/04/2017 at 11:45

      Disagree Derek Witts in a lousy team no one of note to threaten him and getting his hand to it plenty only needs to improve TTA. Much better cash cow than several including Taranto.Maybe a waste of 2 trades with Ryder but not with an underperforming error or injury

    SCaddict · 07/04/2017 at 10:00

    I don't mind the trade myself but I did start with a Sandiwitts structure so have a natural prejudice at play. I have serious doubts that Ryder will finish a top player in his position so he will probably end up some degree of a failed midpricer.

    However just like Roughie he will hold his value so you don't have to act this weekend. You can give it another few weeks and see if he can build up that average as there will always be something juicy to jump on whenever you've decided you've had enough riding the Ryder. But yes I reckon WItts could be one of the best cows of the season hence why I started him.

      dwhits · 07/04/2017 at 10:18

      I'm envious of you starting with that combo. Ryder was always going to end up in no man's land.

      My choices are; 1: Hold Ryder 'till his rd 9 bye (patience + saving trades)
      2: Ryder > Witts (cash gen. + av. more)
      3: Ryder > Grundy/Martin (upgrade to keeper)

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:29

    Bold moves, if your gut says do it…………….

    I started with Sandi/Witts and Nank in the forward line and wouldn't have it any other way.

milesdeutscher · 07/04/2017 at 08:28

Should I go Sandi to Witts and Pickett to WHE, or Sandi to Witts and Mountford to WHE via dpp, but Taranto is benched in the midfield…. Is Sandi to Witts a smart move? Is the cash generation worth blowing a trade?

    Rocksta · 07/04/2017 at 08:52

    I was going to go Sani to Witts and Pickett to WHE, but withh all the new Rookies debuting this week, I've decided to save the trades and ket the WHE boat sail. Instead ( and still risky I know), I'm only trading Pickett to Houston. Houston will i stantly appreciate considerably in value and fingets crissed he csn retsin his dpit fir a couple more weeks I should be able to cash him in to one of the new Rooks on the bubble in Rd5 fir aroynd $120K Profit…………..And it's only 1 Rookie corrective trade used so far this season.

    Rocksta · 07/04/2017 at 08:55

    Try Again:

sharmanism · 07/04/2017 at 08:35

I'm torn between Nank vs WHE.

I have Gawndilands ruck combo but no cover. Forwards are Dahl, Higgins, Steele, Tarranto, Butler, Florent with Simpkin and Eddy on the bench.

I need to dump Simpkin from my forward line so he's gone.

Option 1
To get enough cash for Nank I'd have to trade Jones from my backline and bring in Ottens. So that's two trades with 98K in the bank.

Option 2
Trade Simpkin for WHE and Hibberd from the backline bench for Ottens.

My feeling is that Nank will be a keeper but WHE will be a stepping stone and cash generator.

Is it worth waiting until next week to trade Tarranto or Florent up to WHE?

Thoughts community?

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 08:50

    Next week too late for WHE.

    Nank is tempting, but I still look at who he is up against over next 7 weeks and wonder if he can keep his scoring up.

    Goldy missing last week (don't have him but) shows the problem if there is no ruck cover.

    I'm going Mills to Nank. Sideways correction.

    Makes me weaker in defence, but I'll use Smith this week to loophole Hampton or Berry at D6

    Smith may become Newman next week. Don't like Ottens JS

      neil · 07/04/2017 at 11:58

      Are you perserveering with Cyril Derek could be another Rich .I have Roughy and seriously thinking to go to Oliver or downgrade later to maybe Berry when he bubbles a lot of time for Berry and dpp but Roughys be worrying me even with the Suns coming up

Holty · 07/04/2017 at 08:41

On another subject. Is supercoach gold worth the $20?

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:05

    I got it, the question is do you pay $20 for the convenience of teams and stats breakevens etc.

    I spend so much time on supercoach that it was probably worth it for me

    Lazza · 07/04/2017 at 10:02

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:32

    About $1 a round? Can't afford that then…………

CUBUFFS · 07/04/2017 at 08:43

First time in a long time I'm torn and very confused! Reading comments and many are saying bring in WHE others are saying leave him there will be other rookies to get… I have Taranto sitting there with a BE of 0 so I pull the trigger?? Put my mind at ease fellas

    Rocksta · 07/04/2017 at 09:02

    It's a hard one. As per my post above/below, I have decided to let the WHE boat sail. I too have Taranto and have decided to hold and save the trade. I must say, I'm a Collingwood Supporter and WHE has looked good. However, unless I carry out the same trade you are considering, I need to trade Sandy down to Witts to generate the cash and then potentially trade pickett to WHE. I'm not comfortable with pulling the trigger on the Sandy to Witts trade.

      whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:35

      Trading sandi would be very stupid, Taranto I'm not sure.

      Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:34

      There may be some cognitive bias with WHE looking good.

      I watched last week and saw him get on the end of a few, a couple of easy touches and plenty of luck.

Rocksta · 07/04/2017 at 08:56

Mitchell · 07/04/2017 at 09:01

Haven't used a trade yet and want to get WHE in. Do I trade Pickett or parfitt?

    Rocksta · 07/04/2017 at 09:08

    I think Pickett has better JS than Partiff but with his 2 low scores, he won't make and significant money for weeks even if he does hold his spot.
    That said, Partiff isn't exactly setting the world on fire.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:35

    Pickett. Parfitt named on field and Pickett likely to be dumped this week.,

Frasier · 07/04/2017 at 09:04

Thinking of trading out Tom Lynch (GC) and possibly bringing in Hoskin-Elliot or Sam Reid for a rookie and finding a good forward to replace Lynch with the spare $420 000 but Im not sure who. What does everyone think?

    jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 09:32


    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:37

    Nank and WHE.

    No other forward between 130-420K is worth bothering with.

    You realise Lynch only scored 42 vs GWS last year at spotless? Hold.

    Pablo · 07/04/2017 at 12:22

    Hold Lynch. One bad game does not a season make. As a key forward he will throw the odd stinker, but he will average around 100-105. I still have him in my team. Keep the trade for upgrades. P.S. Under no circumstances go Reid. He is a classic SC trap.

    Frasier · 07/04/2017 at 12:31

    Thanks, looked at his stats from last year and agree with what you are saying. Will probably hold him for a week or so and see how he goes

Ozz · 07/04/2017 at 09:06

Hey Lads, in tonight's game i have 6 or 7(Including WHE on the field) players in the game tonight, should that affect wether i put WHE on the field or Bench?

    Dildor · 07/04/2017 at 09:36

    Probably not, based on his last two weeks scores if you have him, play him.

BrownlowBoy · 07/04/2017 at 09:15

Anyone going a week early on Newman? If you have 2 donuts on defence bench might be worth it?

    TBone · 07/04/2017 at 09:39

    I have hibberd and vickers Willis on defense bench,with Hampton, Stewart and marchbank on field. Is it worth me trading in one of the bench defense donuts to Newman or otten?

      SCaddict · 07/04/2017 at 09:43

      I'd trade in Otten this week and leave the Newman decision until next week.

        TBone · 07/04/2017 at 13:02

        Otten for hibberd or vickers willis? I saw vickers is listed as an emergency and hibberd nowhere to be seen

      Nick · 07/04/2017 at 09:43

      Defiantly get Otten he is a must and will make you plenty of money.

    uDonkey · 07/04/2017 at 10:22

    Agree with SirAddict get Otten in since you have 2 non playing Rookies. Otten will raise in price around 70k this week with his score of 100 in the last round will carry on to Round 4 still a lot of cash to be made with him.

      Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:28

      If he plays next week when Jenkins is back

        uDonkey · 07/04/2017 at 19:56

        True! But I think its still worth it getting that 70k price rise this week for non playing Rookies thats making you cash at all. And like you "IF" 50/50 he does or doesn't.

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:38

    Maybe Berry. High risk but probably best JS out of the lot.

    redherringfc · 07/04/2017 at 20:28

    I did it, same problems. had the same and otten. if i was in a better situation i may have waited,

jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 09:29

team as it stands: Was thinking crouch to Bontempelli, as i think Bont will be top 5 mid by the end of the year and crocuh more likely 10-15. Does this make sense as I have pretty much all the rookies? or am i jumping the gun on crouch?

Def: Shaw, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Hampton, otten (stewart, hibberd)
Mid: Danger, Treloar, tmitch, fyfe, Crouch, Beams Omera, SPP (Barret, Parfit, Pickett)
Ruck: Sandi, Witts (Pruess)
Fwd: Dahl, Mcrae, Higgins, Nank, Steele, WHE (Butler, Eddy)

Chest: $109,400. Trades left : 29 (havnt used any this week.)

Current ranking: 352.

Thanks !

    Lazza · 07/04/2017 at 09:59

    I would hold till the bye rounds… Not much to gain and you are travelling very well. You will need your cash to max your rookies.. A few slow burners in there

    uDonkey · 07/04/2017 at 10:27

    Agree hold its only been 2 Rounds you picked Crouch for a reason whatever that may be, I'd hold firm. Give him few more weeks see he how goes. And yes you are in a good position no point of burning a trade now unless you really need to.

      jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 10:38

      thanks dudes

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:40

    You're going to fall behind I reckon with Crouch, think about potential points difference between him and Bont.

    Crouch 10-15? Not a chance. More like 20+

      jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 11:43

      yeh thats what i was thinking, even last week watched him and he just looked slow and looked like he was carrying somthing, probably not but, CD is in love with Bont anyway so cant really loose on him

        Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:25

        Sure you might miss a few points, but Bont (if you think he is top 8, I don't) can be one of your early upgrades so you won't miss many.

        Bulldogs lack of good ruck will eventually catch up to him

    neil demonsdelight · 07/04/2017 at 12:34

    If anything I would look at your 3 mid bench

      jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 13:36

      yeh but going to have to wait for a little bit until some good rookies come along for the mid bench stuff all atm

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:26

    Great work on your Rank

      jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 15:09

Ben · 07/04/2017 at 09:39

Is it worth trading non playing ruck loop hole for preuss

    SCaddict · 07/04/2017 at 09:47

    I wouldn't recommend it myself. Too many unknowns with Preuss and whilst you will definitely make some coin this weekend I think there are more optimal ways to generate cash without mucking up your structure.

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:51

    I am in the same situation do I trade Stnchin —> Preuss.

    Have decided not too.

    Agree with Addict

james · 07/04/2017 at 09:40

is roughead to higgins a good correctional trade?

    Nick · 07/04/2017 at 09:42

    I'm considering it. But comes with a risk. He gets injured a lot.

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:49

    Id hold Roughead

Nick · 07/04/2017 at 09:40

Still can make decision on the two trades.
1. Roughy to WHE and Omeara to M Murphy
2. Pickett to WHE and Roughy to Higgins
3. Pickett to WHE and Pariff to Houston
4. Pickett to WHE and Omeara to Oliver
Hmm what to do.

    jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 09:42

    I would take 3

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:55

    If I had to choose one of them 3. But do u really need to use 2 trades this week?

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:41

    Pickett to WHE that is all.

blake · 07/04/2017 at 09:44

should i keep or trade Ablett? he looks shot and i feel i should offload the champion to someone like Selwood, Treloar or Merret

current Midfield: Danger, Pendles, Rocky, Fyfe, Priddis, ABLETT, O'meare, Powell-Pepper

thoughts would be appreciated

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:49

    HOLD for sure, he won't go down in much value and he will bounce back this week I think.

    Lazza · 07/04/2017 at 09:51

    Get Bonts and bank the cash…

    SCaddict · 07/04/2017 at 10:10

    Like Hanners and WHE they are the decision points of the round for many coaches. Not sure there is a right answer so every coach has to make their own gut call on that one.

    If you feel he is done and you have no other trade priorities this week then by all means jump off but just take ownership of your decision especially if it ends up backfiring and he goes on to average 120 plus from here.

Chubby McChubby · 07/04/2017 at 09:47

    Wipe your Bum just after poop O'Clock

Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 09:57

Was going to do Mountford —–> Hannan

Bit now with all these new rookies this week, asking myself if it is worth it. My non players are currently Smith, Strandica and Mountford

Thoughts Community?

    TBone · 07/04/2017 at 12:25

    Sounds like a solid move. You only planning on doing one trade this week?

      Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 17:45

      Yes or 0, don't know

Westy · 07/04/2017 at 10:04

Florent to Butler
and Billings to Oliver or Yeo, leaning towards Oliver

    Youngy · 07/04/2017 at 18:17

    Florent is playing… Id Hold

TDEV · 07/04/2017 at 10:05

Quite new to supercoach and wondering if I should trade anyone? Missing some good cash generators in Witts, Oliver and WHE. Also not sure on Hibberd and Pickett. Was thinking Newman and Balic, but should probably wait one more week.

Def: Laird, Docherty, Shaw, Otten, Hampton, Marchbank (Stewart, Hibberd)

Mids: Danger, Titch, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, Swallow, SPP (Pickett, Barrett, Parfitt)

Rucks: Grundy, Sandy (Strndica)

Fwd: Dalhaus, Macrae, Roughie, Nankervis, Houston, Taranto (Butler, Eddy)

Only $400 left so need to downgrade one to upgrade another, unless identical in price.

I was also wondering the use in saving trades? Never actually finished a full season so I don't know.

    Pablo · 07/04/2017 at 12:32

    Wait on the newbies. They will be ripe for the picking in a couple of weeks and you can pick them up then. If you don't have Oliver by now- pass as you will need to sacrifice a trade (or two) for someone not a top 10 mid. Your rucks and cover are good-so pass on Witts- I do not see the extra cash Sandi vs Witts as worth a trade. You don't have the $$ to go Taranto to WHE so not worth burning two trades. Taranto will increase in any case. In short you team looks OK. I would wait until the next few rounds to cash in some cows and bring in the new crop. Good luck.

      TDEV · 07/04/2017 at 12:38

      Cheers for the help, I was thinking holding was my best option. Also wish you luck for the season ahead.

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:18

    Do nothing. Resist the temptation

Reiwoldting · 07/04/2017 at 10:11

Traded Hannas straight to Murphy. Effectively a 300k money maker with price difference plus increase and decrease for each just after week 3. And murph will probably make more points for a few weeks yet. Then look to swap when murph is 550 and Hannas 450. Yes 2 trades but for say 20 points extra per week and 400k. You would do that for rookies so that's why I've done it

    marcus · 07/04/2017 at 10:22

    That is a terrible idea dont do it

    uDonkey · 07/04/2017 at 10:51

    Good luck to you, for your sake i hope it doesn't backfire. The difference you trade in a Rookie on the bubble is cash generation purposes to get premos in later on. As for premos only trade if they are in LTI (3 weeks or more) if really need to trade out a premo then trade them to another premo that will remain in your team. No point of trading a premo to someone who you're going to trade out again.

    Complete waste of trade.

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:14

    You had me thinking it was a good idea until I checked your maths. It's not actually $400k

    Murphy $117k and Hanners $167k differences = $284k

Whitchy · 07/04/2017 at 10:15

Mountford for Witts via pickett swing then Nank swing


Mountford for WHE via pickett swing

Cash isn't an issue

Thanks in advance

    Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 12:37


Neverweaken · 07/04/2017 at 10:21

Through a lot of DPP manoeuvring. Hibberd out for Houston and Caddy out for WHE. Just don't see Caddy as more than an 80 to 90 player and no high ceiling. Now also running with Sandiwitts and Nank in the forward line. Witts should do well against hawthorn

    jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 10:23

    yeh nice, very happy I decided to not run with Caddy, just not looking like the player i thought he would be at Richmond.

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:09

    That means you have one LESS keeper. I thought idea was to get more?

Nick · 07/04/2017 at 10:24

what is everyone's VC and C options this week??
Thinking buddy VC although l would like a win in my league so thinking Vc danger into Beams…Thoughts community?

    jwill2bong · 07/04/2017 at 10:34

    Going to roll the dice of Treloar again. Hope CD dosen fck me.

      whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:22

      So many people don't know how supercoach scoring works.

    Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 10:49

    I like buddy as vc and danger as c. Buddy just has that look about him, could produce a monster. As for danger I'm not super sure, Melb midfield is handy and has a hard edge plus Gawn should dominate. Still it is Dangerfield and he costs 700 k plus for a good reason .

    Doc · 07/04/2017 at 10:55

    I'm stuck with Hanners at VC (praying to the sc gods).
    Hibberd's my only donut so need to put the c on him (or not) before Saturday.
    (My only other options playing tonight are WHE or Adams).

    My designated donut (Balic) got picked – was hoping he'd get a game post byes but didn't expect it so soon!

    whatyasmokin · 07/04/2017 at 11:47

    VC Nank
    C Danger

    Josh · 07/04/2017 at 11:59

    Only loophole hibbered so Vc trelor, only needs to clean his efficiency up and he'll go big. And putting the c on titch with hopefully a few more kicks this week and a sneaky goal or two

    Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 12:36

    I'm going pendles into danger. But I did consider danger into rocky.

Tibor · 07/04/2017 at 10:39

So many trades from people chasing WHE in particular, fair enough if you got it done for one trade of non player or a real spud error like McCarthy. But multiple trades or dumping rough, JOM even Taranto seems a bit hysterical. Went a different way and held roo after round one even though I did expect to have to pull the trigger this week. If I did trade straight away could easily have tumbled in to t lynch. What a bonus to get roo back……. sometimes the best action is no action those trades really are gold.

If WHE crashes this week there will be absolute carnage. Go swannies

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:07

    Well done with NRoo. Hope he does well.

    I thought about Smith to WHE but was $2300 short. Oh well

Nick · 07/04/2017 at 10:39

i have the ability to use my loophole in my fwd line, who will score more Butler, Eddy or Taranto?

    Dildor · 07/04/2017 at 10:45

    How longs a piece of string?

      Nick · 07/04/2017 at 10:54


    Travo · 07/04/2017 at 12:19

    I would back Taranto, I rate the kid and think his scores will be getting better.

Monty · 07/04/2017 at 10:52

Re my forward loophole, who will score most – Taranto, Florent or Hannan? I am not including Butler because I think he will do OK.

Steeeve · 07/04/2017 at 11:07

I was set on bringing in WHE and Otten this week but wondering if I save a trade with all these rookies coming…

Nige · 07/04/2017 at 11:13

Thought Ryder played great last week but scoring still not great. Scoring potential suspect. Should I swap for Nank bigger scoring potential and makes me coin. I've spent far too long contemplating this…

    Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 12:29

    Accumulates cash, on field value and more likely at keeper. Seems logical corrective trade.

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 14:00

    I can see them scoring very similar. Nank has some very tough opponents over next 7 weeks

JuddWarneLoveChild · 07/04/2017 at 11:24

Simple question that I'm surprised no-one seems to have asked (that I've seen) – WHE or Houston? Have the spare coin for WHE and already have Hannan, Butler and Eddy. Swinging Taranto to mid for Hibberd freeing up 1 spot forward. I don't believe WHE is a keeper and both will generate quick cashola so if you were only going for 1 of them…. who is it?

    Steeeve · 07/04/2017 at 12:10

    Heaps of people have asked that. WHE better job security

      JuddWarneLoveChild · 07/04/2017 at 12:55

      hmmm my bad, read through a heap of comments must be blind tho

        Derek · 07/04/2017 at 13:58

        Who is this WHE you speak of….,?

    TBone · 07/04/2017 at 12:20

    Mate everyone asking that exact same question… hahaha

    Pablo · 07/04/2017 at 12:38

    I don't trust Houstons JS. That is why I am going WHE.

    neil demons delight · 07/04/2017 at 12:56

    WHE hands down Houston in trouble when Pittard returns and even if WHE SPUDS his j s still good.In a bottom 4 team and a rubbish coach but whe is better than average which keeps him secure only problem is there enough quality to supply him got my doubts

BZZZ · 07/04/2017 at 11:51

Does everyone think Murphy will be producing around this level for the rest of the season?

    Go murph · 07/04/2017 at 12:44

    Has had his first full preseason in many years so I believe so, injury is the only question mark there. Personally I'm going with him but trust your gut.

Jack · 07/04/2017 at 11:59

Does everyone believe in the Ollie Wines hype? Is this the breakout year? Do we trust his consistency? Cheers community

    TBone · 07/04/2017 at 12:19

    Well I started with him, took the risk on him, and I'll see where he takes me. But if you don't already have him, I wouldn't bring him in

      Derek · 07/04/2017 at 13:55

      Have another look at him after round 8

Tommo · 07/04/2017 at 12:02

Hey lads just wondering which two rookies i should field in my fwd line out of Butler, Parfitt, Eddy and Picket.

Neverweaken · 07/04/2017 at 12:06

Caddy to WHE or Caddy to Buddy?

    Randomcliche2 · 07/04/2017 at 12:25

    Nank. Oh, WHE or Bud… Higgins. Got both higgins and nank? Prolly bud unless you were also needing the cash for marchy as well. If not put that cash to work scoring points with bud.

      Derek · 07/04/2017 at 13:52

      Buddy is a keeper. Good correction trade

Gary · 07/04/2017 at 12:08

If you still had Smith and Hibberd on DEF bench would you trade this week? Who to?

    Jay · 07/04/2017 at 12:29

    Only trade now if you're going to cop a doughnut. Otherwise hold till next week to see how Newman et al goes.

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 13:51

    I have both. Holding this week

    uDonkey · 07/04/2017 at 15:15

    If you have Otten, Stewart and Mbank in defense then hold, if ya don't. I would bring bring Otten in, if ya have cash in the bank I'd bring Mbank in for Smith.

      Gary · 07/04/2017 at 15:23

      I have Shaw, Tuohy, Adams, Hampton, Otten, Marchbank as my onfield. Smith and Hibberd are on the bench. Do i need to bring in Steart?

TBone · 07/04/2017 at 12:30

Who do we think the premo forwards are gonna end up being this year? Subjective, i know. Just planning forward to when I can upgrade a mid pricer. Cheers guys

Fraz · 07/04/2017 at 12:36

Will Hoskin-Elliot or McCluggage?

    sammyp14 · 07/04/2017 at 13:29

    WHE,wait for McGluggage to play then make a choice on him.

Billioux · 07/04/2017 at 13:03

2 trades for me 1. No Brainer Rookie correction Mcspud out WHE in. Number 2 breaks all good advice and I am Gaz biggest fan but he is cooked IMO. SO Gaz out Yeo in. Makes cash and i believe Yeo can be F2 F3 this year.

    Adam · 07/04/2017 at 14:15


    AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2017 at 15:18

    be prepared for frustration with Yeo.

      harry · 07/04/2017 at 17:44

      go higgins over yeo. if stays fit he is more consistent

Qwert · 07/04/2017 at 13:18

Thoughs on robbie fox as a VC option? My brother is good mates with john longmuire up in sydney and horse reckons he's been training the house down. Likely to start on ball/ ruck because of darcy cameron's ongoing earlobe injury.

Thoughts guys? thanks

    Derek · 07/04/2017 at 15:27

    Sounds good mate, go with your gut. I used to love watching foxy back in the day when he was a youngster

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 16:00

    Earlobe injury?…lol, did his ear ring hole get infected?
    Ummm an unknown as your VC?…wouldn't normally advise it to anyone but go with your gut if you believe in him.

sammyp14 · 07/04/2017 at 13:23

Do I trade Sandi to Witts, or just hold and keep Nank in the forward line as cover?

    Bock Choy · 07/04/2017 at 13:54

    Hold and keep! Be sparing with your trades.

Mitch · 07/04/2017 at 14:47

Do i need to find a way to bring in WHE?
It would probably involve upgrading him from (or via) Pickett or Taranto

DEF: Laird,Shaw,Docherty,Lloyd,Otten,Hampton, (EVW, Stewart)
MID: Danger, T-Mitchell, Treloar, JPK, Fyfe, Beams, SPP, Jaeger (Taranto, Barrett, Prafitt)
FWD: JJK,Dahl,Macrae, Higgins, Butler, Houston (Pickett, Eddy)

    Mitch · 07/04/2017 at 14:48

    Only have $600 in the bank

Travo · 07/04/2017 at 14:47

I'm seeing people around saying they're trading out Hibberd for Butler. Am I missing something? I thought they were different positions?

    relton · 07/04/2017 at 17:17

    must be a bit of DPP switcheroo going on

Stephen · 07/04/2017 at 15:14

I need to trade Jack Steven and I want to trade Ablett.

I am trying to choose between

The Bont and Ollie Wines or
The Bont and Zach Merrett


    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 18:34

    Steven might only be out 1 week.

    Tibor · 08/04/2017 at 06:54

    Both ok but remember the early bye for wines

Gary · 07/04/2017 at 15:58

What do people think of Strnadica to Preuss or risk.

Joe T · 07/04/2017 at 16:55

Good luck with the league matchups this week community!

I'm trading Hibberd to Butler via DPP which is a no brainer. I'm unsure on WHE but it seems like that cash generation is too good to pass up. Is it worth trading Pickett to WHE even though Pickett has pretty good JS but doesn't seem like he'll generate much cash? Leaves me with $35k

Alex · 07/04/2017 at 17:18

29 Trades – 140k. Should I trade J Smith, Hibberd or Strndeca this week Only options are Stewart, Mcgrath or Preuss, advice?
DEF: Shaw, Tuohy, Adams, March, Otten, Hampton (Hibberd, J Smith)
MID: Pendles, JPK, Danger, Fyfe, Beams, O'Meara, Swallow, P-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)
RUC: Gawn, Sandi (Strndeca)
FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Rough, Nank, Hoskin-Elliott, Taranto (Eddy, Hannan)

Adam · 07/04/2017 at 17:22

So the question is whether or not to trade Roughead for Hoskin-Elliott?
Hoskin-Elliott will bring in potentially an extra $175k on top of the $155k for trading down but will cost a trade, whereas Roughead will probably rise another $50k but may fill in a F5 or F6 come later in the year?

Thoughts anyone?

CoachDamo · 07/04/2017 at 17:31

Getting rid of Horlin-Smith and can't decide which way to go.

Can trade him to WHE which leaves me with $261K in the bank.

OR trade him to Marc Murphy. Very tempting!

WitTsY · 07/04/2017 at 17:54

is strnadica to witts a good move ?? he'd only be on my bench but generating cash! got stef R1 sandi R2 and nank up FWD

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 18:48

    Yeah why not, as long as you have someone else to loophole.

Mitch · 07/04/2017 at 18:14

Hi community
I know I picked them for a reason but thoughts on downgrading bob Murphy and roughhead to marchbank and will hoskin Elliot to score similarly but earn 300,000 in the kitty ?

Cheers team

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 18:47

    Yeah Mitch you could, but it's not really necessary, kind of a double sideways trade but makes you cash. I tend to like to wait for injuries before trading out my keeper picks unless they're really spudding it up. Like you said, you picked them for a reason, and long term out players like Bob and Roughy will need a bit of time to get back to their best.

andy_89 · 07/04/2017 at 18:20

Who's by biggest priority to get rid of community?

Have CMcCarthy and Hibberd, J Smith, Simpkin and Strandica all not playing but all on bench

Don't have WHE, Otten or Butler. Worth burning the two trades this week? Haven't used one yet. Have 130k in the bank

    Russ in W.A · 07/04/2017 at 18:41

    Giday Andy, i reckon get rid of McCarthy the spud for WHE, only, and then have a look at the new rookies starting this week to see how they go. up to you whether you want to burn two…will you get a 0 if you don't?

      harryO · 07/04/2017 at 18:53

      agree with you Russ. McCarthy has to be traded for WHE and watch this weeks rookies closely. i like the loook of hayward and newman

        andy_89 · 07/04/2017 at 19:26

        Cheers boys! No donut so will go the spud to WHE and sit tight. Sounds like a good rookie crop around the corner. Was too impatient too often last year

harryO · 07/04/2017 at 18:45

parfitt or pickett to houston??

    neil demons delight · 07/04/2017 at 19:11

    Houston has serious J S worries when Pittard comes back got a feeling Pickett will fire shortly looks good

Dusty Spurs · 07/04/2017 at 18:45

Should I start Hampton or Stewart?

    harryO · 07/04/2017 at 18:51


    neil demons delight · 07/04/2017 at 19:12

    Hampton just

Defying · 07/04/2017 at 18:49

If the only way to get Butler in is to trade Partfitt or Pickett would you pull the trigger or hold.

    harryO · 07/04/2017 at 18:51

    same dilemma! but for me its getting in houston.. i am thinking pickett

    neil demons delight · 07/04/2017 at 19:15

    Parfitt has worse J S could be a waste of a trade though

jesse · 07/04/2017 at 19:03

Thoughts on trading Taranto to WHE

    milesdeutscher · 07/04/2017 at 19:22

    I am doing the same.

Travo · 07/04/2017 at 19:26

Thanks heaps! I didn't know I could do that. Trade complete.

Bravis Toak · 07/04/2017 at 20:53

Pendles on 33 – kicks it out on the full – drops to 32 – gets two handball disposals – goes to 42???

CD logic?

gotta love having Pendles in the team and the CD bias towards him.

    Jordan · 08/04/2017 at 23:09

    players score points from being the first player to get their hands on the ball in a contest, contested possesion, score involvements, 1%ers, how close a game is and how significant that disposal is can effect the score aswell

Northerner · 08/04/2017 at 06:17

Well. I'm in shock a little. I don't think I can justify a trade this week. Never been in that spot before for the big bubble week. I was planning to trade in Otten for Hibberd this week, but decided to wait till after the Friday game to see how Newman went and how my mid pricer in Zac Jones performed. Jones has kept his spot secure – now performed 2 out of 3 weeks and did look good. Think I'll pick up Newman for next week instead of getting Otten. I'd have to trade out Stewart next week to get both of them in which does not make sense.

Feels very strange

Help needed · 08/04/2017 at 10:25

Please help out a struggling coach:
Do I trade Simpkin to Hannan or Houston or do I not trade????

    TigerMan · 08/04/2017 at 11:07

    Simpkin to Houston for sure mate

TigerMan · 08/04/2017 at 11:07

I only have 3 Vice Captain options this week. Either Josh Kelly (GWS) ave 112, Dustin Martin (RIC) ave 138, Josh J Kennedy (WCE) ave 128………..who should I pick? Thinking Kelly will have a big game. I Want to go Martin but risky with a fractured cheek/helmet this week. Thoughts People?

Jordan · 08/04/2017 at 23:10

how much will gawn drop in price and how much will nank rise? im thinking of going gawn to nank and taranto to a midpricer

    Russ in W.A · 08/04/2017 at 23:41

    Not sure how much Gawn will drop but I'd calculate about 30 grand, and Nank to go up about 60 grand..

ben andrews · 11/04/2017 at 12:35
