Emma

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

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

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

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

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

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

Talked yourself into the trade, haven't you?

Derek

Classic Chacing points trade.

Kev

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

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

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

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 126..do 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

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

Leeds17

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

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

Ozz

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

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

bUCKET__

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 🙂

Carlos

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

Kev

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

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

Dildor

He was injured, probably would have had it

Jambak

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

Kevan

Sounds good to me. Much greater cash generation.

Dean

Yep – Do it and lock it in FREDDY FORESKIN…

Webspyda

No Brainer!

Col

We can't trust Higgins can we?

Mystic Mac

I don't.

redgumwon

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

BlakeyP

Till we all hear Twang

Leeds17

As much as you could trust Wells last season.

Jojo

Butler or Houston

Box

Both!

BlakeyP

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

Mal

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

Joddan

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

jwill2bong

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

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

Matt

Taranto to WHE?

Dean

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

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

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

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

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

pete

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

Kev

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

Danners

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

Kyle

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

Bruiser again

Do it

PD09

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

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

Daniel

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

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

Hanners U Tool

It was probably 30% at the start of the week

Danners

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

Is that you Dan?

Captain Risky

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

Was looking at him too, bugger.

SCaddict

Houston we have a problem?!

hedski

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

Bhargs

J. Steele out of WHE?

Emma

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

awful

Valens_FC

crazy talk

FCAbel

No

JGown

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.
Thoughts?

Matt

Rookies are priority, hold Hannebery

Gaz

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

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

Lift Gaz!

Rivo

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

Matt

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

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

Danners

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

Peter

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

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

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

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

Derek

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

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

Choices

Hannebery to Bont
Ablett to Nankervis
Thoughts?

adam

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

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

Derek

what other ruckmen do Tigers have to come back? when

adam

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

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

Danners

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

Gawners

Roughy to WHE and Joel Smith to Marchbank

OR

Roughy to Oliver via dpp and Pickett to Houston

Mog

Definitely Option 1. I am making same trade.

Houston not Guaranteed ToPlay play
Yet

Ethan

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

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.

Derek

yep

Beezneez

Wish I had the $$ to do that trade.

CJay

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

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

Ethan

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

Derek

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

FCAbel

Fun risk to take. I like it.

Bells E Bubb

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

Word is Roo will play. What now?

groundhogday

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

INPieman

That's been going on all week

whoolidooli

and next week will be all about Newman! lol

DEE71

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

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

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

Isn't 100% needed***

Paul

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

Seeker

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

Done and done!

Danners

Hold, you picked him for a reason

liam

Thoughts on roughie to whe??

Imgonnalose

Read the other 16583599 comments exactly the same

Derek

agree. getting a little tired

The Buttonsticher

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

Anyone else not jumping on WHE and Marchbank?

Imgonnalose

I started with WHE and am certainly not jumping on marchbank

Seeker

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

Derek

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

+1

INPieman

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

Kev

Ditto, Pie. Guess we're pretty clever…

Youngy

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

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

Mystic Mac

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

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

INPieman

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

red5

Nope

poloko48

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

4rm

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

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

Derek

keep simpkin

Seeker

agreed, keep Simpkin unless he's dropped

Damo

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

i would go Hall to WHE (via Pickett)

Dac Zawson

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

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

Dac Zawson

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

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

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

Sorry and Marchbank of course

smithwick

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

JRod

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

I like option 3 out of the ones you have suggested

Dac Zawson

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

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

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

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

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

Rick

silly on both counts

Trent

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

april fool joke for sure

Keenbutclueless

Yup. Nice piece of bait.

Youngy

Haha Bad trades

Danners

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

Conundrums

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?
Thoughts?

Tyruddanaut

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

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

Captain Risky

Stealing Parfitts spot maybe?

Big F

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

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

Andrew

Sideways trade of Roughead to Nankervis?

Youngy

I'd being holding personally

Tyruddanaut

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

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

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

Dimwitt

T Boyd to Preuss…for cash

Then bowes to heppel..keeper

Dac Zawson

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

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

Boyd to Witts

Valens_FC

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.

Views?

Dac Zawson

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

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

Tyruddanaut

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SF4

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

creeky23

Got me all except Hannan mate

Aaron

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

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

Youngy

I'd Hold

Dac Zawson

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

Kevan

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

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

sandni836

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

Who are your other rookies?

Jack

Rough out Nank in??

Youngy

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

AuroraBorealis?!

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

Col

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

Was a very good SC scorer as a junior

The Coach

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

WHE in for a non-playing rookie 100%

jez_m

WHE for non-playing rookie

The Ranger

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

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

Doc

No issues on my machines

Bombers56

Yes, I consistently have this 🙁

Rick

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

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

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.

Rivo

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

Solid trade

Houston

What do we do with Houston if he is dropped?

INPieman

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

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

Captain Risky

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

Jimmy

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

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

Jimmy

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

Jimmy

Cash*

undypuncher

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

Lach

Ryder or Picket out for WHE..

undypuncher

Back ryder in

SC17

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

Rick Grimes

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

Dac Zawson

bang bang

BZZZ

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

INPieman

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

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

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

Captain Risky

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.

Micky_B

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

Rick Grimes

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

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

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

Paul

Thoughts please.

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

Jim

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

Randomcliche2

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

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

Isn't Hibberd struggling for a game?

The Ranger

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.

SCaddict

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

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

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

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

andrew

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)

Thoughts?

Shenanigans

thisisscoman

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.
