INPieman

Hibbo Jnr to Newman will be the most popular trade in history next week. The Malcheski clone

neil demons delight

Berry better for my structure but hard to pass how many cows do we need cant do this each week

INPieman

Berry is a tantalising prospect. Those like Derek who started him knowing he'd come in, well played. I get the feeling Newman & Berry are must haves. If Balic played for anyone other than Ross he'd be in my team right now. The kid is a jet

Moustachio

Berry spudded… Phew, can't fit em all in

Nick

Smith to Newman you mean. A lot of people kept him for this reason .

marcusproudson

So I've traded Newman in for hibberd like everyone in history. But I'm also thinking of either trading tuohy for otten for extra cash. Or up to Taylor Adams. Or maybe omera to Oliver. Or should I hold and wait a week. Thoughts.?

INPieman

7K traded Hanners out. Might be a few tears in Corn Flakes this morning. I'm going to pass the collection tray around today & see I can raise enough for Gary to give me a decent score! I'm going to back you in Gary! DO SOMETHING

King

I kept Hanners, BUT I'm not happy at all, the mans knees are about to fall off. Copped another hit in knee and hardly played in the last and was grimacing when he came back on…..abit envious of people who took him out now, thought he was going to pay us back but now price is going to drop and not sure about his health.

Holmes_Heroes

took me all week of staring at my team but turned Hanners into Zerrett at about 5pm. 112 not enough to make me regret the decision (130 next week might 🙂 ). I think Zerrett will do better than that against Carlton. I'll cop the wasted (if it is wasted) trade for my disloyalty in not backing my man Zach and the extra sleep I will get not obsessing over Hanners knees

JibJib

+1

Tony

Same here, but I went to Wines and the change got me WHE for Joel Smith via DPP.

Hanners got a lot of the ball for 112, just like he got a reasonable amount of it the week before. I'm worried that he's not scoring well as he's not able to be as effective as before due to whatever he's carrying. And seeing him limp through the last quarter convinced me there's something wrong.

I also think Wines will be a beast for the rest of the year, which is why I got on.

Dan

GAJ needs to be careful when he pulls that finger out…might hurt his shoulder.

Kim

Can GAJ play yes he can great players do not loose their ability.what coaches are not condidering is opportumity simply GAJ will not be there next season so Rocket Eade has to plan for the future and commit that midfield time to try and find the best replacement.

PD09

Good work Pieman…back in the premo you studied & decided to run with at season start

I tossed & turned all week over Hanners & went back to why I started with him in the 1st place…proven premo over last 2-3 yrs

I stayed & was rewarded at least last night…he got back to his basics that made him the player he is, hard running, tackling & clean hands. He now becomes a POD too.

Back Gaz…

INPieman

Nice work PDO. He sure is a POD now & you've saved a trade. Good luck

Tommo09

Like Gaz this week
He may have just needed a boot up the backside to get going

INPieman

He certainly had a spray from me this weeke tommo. Hope it fires him up

Tommo09

Will be hoping to pick him up around bye time if he shows something before then

Swannie

I traded Mills to Newman, extra cash put in Oliver – looks to be a win win for me….

INPieman

BANG! Nice one Swannie. Give us the quaddie for Randwick today please

Tophawk

Nice job! (So far……) Sometimes it can be a clever little strategy to go one week early on these potential gun rookies. It worked a treat for you this week. Love it. I will get Nic Newman next week for the injured Joel Smith. Yes, bit more conservative, bet still very effective nonetheless! I hope part two of your move bears fruit and Oliver puts in a big one! Cheers

BloodyFranklin

"Delicious" – Bruce

Rhys

Should I trade Pickett to Houston? Will mean I have to swing Taranto on to my mid bench.

Dildor

With the ammount of juicy rookies about to swing through id say sit tight and wait

Swannie

Houston to go up in price by $70k – I would try and play Taranto if you can….

INPieman

It would suck bringing Houston in only to be dropped next week for Pittard. The gods have a habit of doing these things

Kenny

Port lost another defender (Hombsch) with a knee this week so Houston's JS has maybe stabilised for a couple weeks

JibJib

"Maybe" 😉

harry

i did this exact move rhys! traded pickett to houston and swang taranto to my mids bench. may downgrade him to berry in coming weeks anyway

Sam_01

Take pendles loophole or back in the dangerman? Leaning towards the conservative option and taking dependleberrys score. I'm a fool for even considering not putting him in my team haha

Rhys

Take pendles. Danger record against the Dees not great

INPieman

The 125 is right inside the corridor of uncertainty. But Danger is in menacing form & I'm going to back him to beat that

Tophawk

Just leave it on Danger. I will be doing it for the third week in a row after Buddy's spudly effort last night. (Treloar VC rd 1, Treloar VC rd2, and Buddy VC rd 3) Dangermouse is playing imposing footy at the moment. I am confident he will deliver the SC goodies against the Dees today. Cheers

hedski

I've vcd the same each week.

Tophawk

Hehehehe. We have been utter VC dunces to date. But who really cares when Danger puts on a clinic each week. Good luck in the leagues mate!

Dutch

Nearly the same as well – Treloar / Buddy / Buddy – same result each round so far, hoping Danger saves me for the 3rd week running ….

Danners

I have the same problem, but after having a think, even if Danger scores 150, you're only losing 25 points

Krups

Be 50 points wouldn't. 125 x 2 is 250 vs 150 x 2 is 300?

Kyle

you would lose the extra 125 from pendles vc and gain 150 from danger as c. Only 25 mate

The Ranger

It's a common piece of maths to get wrong Krups.
In the example above…
Danger as C on 150, Pendles with 125 works out as 150 + 150 + 125 = 425
Pendles as C on 125, Danger with 150 works out as 125 + 125 + 150 = 400

Tophawk

Not quite. This is how it works.
Take VC Pendles score= 125 x 2 + 150 (Danger score)= 450 points total

Do not take Pendles VC score= 150 x 2 + 125(Pendles score)=425 points total.

As such, taking Pendles VC score will only cost you a net total of 25 points.

Welcome!

hedski

Ha ha. 125 + 125 + 150 = 400.
125 + 150 + 150 = 425.
25 points.

Top hawk

Maths has never been my strong point. LOL. Got the 25 point bit right though. Hehe

Kenny

How the hell did Pendlebury score 125 in the first place is the real question!!

Derek

Agree

Tophawk

Once again, we see coaches fall for the 3 card trick. Trade out a super premo (Hannebery) and get absolutely punished for it. He pumped out 112 SC points and is now close to being back to performing at the elite level. I also felt that WHE was going to taper off a bit against the swannies and that is exactly what happened. I am glad I stuck fat and not select the bloke this week. I am not saying it WHE was a bad pick, but there are many more (even better) cash generating rooks set to come through over the next month. Next week I can dispose of the injured Joel Smith. Goodbye Smith and hello Nic Newman!! I still have Hibberd and he might play next week….If not, he will be a nice little loophole option until such a time a power rookie on the bubble takes his spot.

I do not have the Nank and I want the Nank badly. (My only trade consideration this week). I am considering trading out my unreliable "POD" premo Aaron Hall. I do not consider him a must keep super premo like Hanners, but more that spekky midfielder which could turn into a super premo. After his 44 last round, I am not sure it is going to happen. He has inconsistency written all over his forehead!! I should have know bloody better! Therefore, I think it is strategically logical to trade him out for Nankervis and bank a little bit of coin for rookie trading and to prepare for the next super premo upgrade.
Any thoughts are always appreciated. Getting ready to hit that trade button this morning. Cheers

INPieman

Under normal circumstances trading a premo to a mid pricer is madness. But I think this is a rare case where that is acceptable. Nank looks like a top 6 forward at the moment

Tophawk

That is exactly how I see it. Normally, I would NEVER entertain such a trade, but my gut tells me that Nankervis is an absolute must have. I could leave Hall alone however, and do a straight Steele to Nankervis trade. I can afford that. But I reckon Steele is strategically more important than bloody Hall!! That's what it comes down to. One of these two is going this morning. Nankervis is coming in. And I just think Hall is the better replacement for him than Steele. Thanks mate!

INPieman

With Steven & Armitage missing I won't be moving Steele on any time soon. And playing at Etihad suits his game

Derek

I didn't start with the Nank and was one of the non believers.

My first trade this week was Mills to Nank. Straight sideways correction trade.

Premos MUST be trade to another premium and only if injured

INPieman

Rules are made to be broken Derek. Hall has no chance of being a top 15 midfielder. Nank could be a top 6 forward. And it gives him some cash. I like that trade & id do it myself in that situation

Top hawk

Thanks pie! Nankervis is the man! I knew he would deliver today. Very very happy. He will end up with around 110 against the Eagles today.

Schick

Traded hanners to Murphy and marchbank. Burnt a trade but comfortable with the choice. Not sure that hanners and a trade is worth more this year

neil demons delight

Looked closely at Hall preseason but didn't I think its the Suns that swayed me

Swannie

Randwick Quaddie – 9 7 1 2…. Randwick R1 N8 EW, there you go INPieman…

Top Gun

Ocean Embers in the last Swannie

INPieman

Might have a piece of that Swannie. Cheers. Winx is a free leg of the quaddie

Swannie

I have Hall in my mid, kept him this week for the reasons above. I learnt last year as soon as you trade them out, Boom they score – but if doesnt perfom this week going to look at Heppell…

Mike

Stuck with hanners after a week of crazy substitute trades. Finally he produced. Happy and hopefully more 110+ scores from him

GC suck

Eddy pickett or parfitt???

GC suck

Cant loophole

Tophawk

I would put Eddy on the field.

Col

Currently running 2 rookies on field in fwd line

Who should I have on field
Butler, Hannan, Eddy or Parfitt?

Tophawk

I would run with Butler and Eddy.

TBone

Butler and Eddy

Danners

Butler and Hannan

Dan

Snagged him this week in my 1 trade hibberd to newman….newman on field hampton on bench faaaaarrrrrkkkkkking bang bang

Luxy

Just wondering whether to keep Adams 122 as C via loophole?

Seeker

Assuming Danger is an option but who else do you have?

I'm considering TMitch against the Suns

Luxy

Yes have Danger but thinking 'points in the bank' and not speculating I suppose. Danger could go off as he has been doing but… Titch has a great record v Suns

Port

Should I trade in Houston? Could darcy byrne Jones make way for pitted?

Derek

Let it be someone else's problem if or when he isn't picked. Same with Otten, he might play next week.

CRIPPStoniteSC

Who out for mccarthy lads? Houston or hannan?

Danners

Houston, should make quick cash

Saundo

Should I trade Hibberd to Otten or pick up Newman next week?

Krups

Put him in last week Jock

Skindog

Trelor is doing my head in, not quite a premo in my eyes, I do t want to but could see a sideways in the not to distant future if he can't get his de up,,,,

Saundo

Yeah if it wasn't for his 14 tackles he probably would have scored 90 ! I was very close to trading him to Merrett this week.

Derek

That's like saying if it wasn't for Grundy getting 30 HO he would have only got 90. It's what he does!

Trelor has SO much UPSIDE it's not funny

CRIPPStoniteSC

Scores are getting better each week…trade away

Skindog

Hes on notice,,,,,,

Rusty

When the pace of the games slow as the season progresses, Treloar will be rolling along pumping out 125 a game. It's a longgggg season

Skindog

can only hope so, but its his DE thats the problem,,,

TBone

Any way I can check the updated team sheets for teams playing after friday night? want to know whether pickett and barrett will be playing or not. Cheers!

hedski

Both named Tbone.
AFL live app shows final teams about 90 mins before each game.

Kev

Sunday teams are finalised around 5ish on Friday night, tbone. Afl site has an 'all the teams' banner all weekend

TBone

thanks mate, ill hop right on it!

TBone

cheers! appreciate the info mate

Tom

Should I put the C on Danger or Bont? Danger has the Dees who his record isn't great against and Bont is playing Fremantle's youth squad. Already used the VC on Buddy

Cliffy

Hey community,

Which on-field rookies are people rolling with this Round?

This is currently my outlook:

Def: Hampton, Otten
Mid: SPP, Barrett
Fwd: WHE (locked), Houston

Cliffy

Whoops was meant to throw in Marchbank too for Defence that I'll play also.

Cliffy

Additionally to that question, would it be safer to have just SPP fielding as my only on-field Mid rookie rather than having 2 on-field?

This could be done via moving Dahl or Macrae into Mids, however it means I have to play 3 on-field Fwd rookies instead of 2. This would look like:

Mid: Danger, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, TMitch, Dahlhaus, Beams, SPP (Barrett, Hibberd, Parfitt)

Fwd: Macrae, Roughead, Nankervis, WHE, Butler, Houston (Pickett, Eddy)

hedski

Hey Cliffy, I'm running-
Def – M'Bank, Otten, Hampton.
Mid – SPP and Taranto.
Fwd – Houston + looping Butler and Eddy.
If you think Butler will outscore Barrett make the shuffle.

Tommy

Which rookies on field out of
Def: Otten or Stewart
Fwd (pick 2): Butler, Houston or Hannan

Eskimo

Otter

Kev

Def: Otten
Fwd: Houston, Butler

TBone

I went stewart. butler and houston up forward

Adam

I went plowman it was the smart play

Eskimo

Hamburger Hampton or beef Stewart for on field def rookie

Kenny

Hampton named to start on the ball but team selections aren't reliable .. Stewart looks to be good for 50-60 each week so if you think Hampton is likely to score more then that is your answer.

Jack

Taranto to Houston??

adam

no. job security is similar. i feel that cash generation will be similar too. save your trade

Derek

You are at the top of your game Kev. Well done

Jimmy

Guys help pls dunno who to put as Captain.

Who out of Danger, Selwood and Fyfe?
Not sure about danger tho cos his history against Melbourne isn't that good.

Cheers guys

Daniel

I've seen a few people write that about Danger.
Last 3 against Melbourne: 155, 75 (74?), and 120.

One bad score, one typical score, one amazing score…

Please Help

Please help out a struggling coach:

Simpkin to Hannan or Houston or keep Simpkin???

Dutch

Facing the same dilemma – leaning towards holding given some of the good rooks coming through the next few weeks

Danners

Wield the axe, go Houston

James

Sideways Parfitt for Butler or will Parfitt come good?

Nick

get butler

FCAbel

Good trade

Josh

Hope you didn't 101 lol

Steve

Got the VC on Danger. If he has a stinker which of Titch, Laird or Fyfe for the C?

Seeker

Tmitch

FCAbel

Same. I'm going titch

Tom

Who is more likely to get a game for North out of Mountford and Hibberd?

Brendan

Mounford. Despite north losing their fringe backs esp mullet and Hansen played well.

Top Gun

I am in the 8000's overall and I really think Higgins (despite his Barry Crocker years of buggering us around) will be a top 6 forward. So it was time to take a risk and against my better judgement i have gone Sandi > Witts and Roughie > Higgins
In the words of Bruce Almighty for the Supercoach Gods

"Smite me oh mighty smiter"

Keenbutclueless

I feel a smite coming on……

Top Gun

HIggins 32 at half time…doooohhhhhh!

hedski

Roughie will kick 6….

Top Gun

10….Supercoach Gods are cruel

Randomcliche2

You could have bought gawn……and been in a world more hurt….I guess

Top Gun

Or forgotten to put a non playing rookie on the field and put C on Fyfe after VC on Danger costing myself 50 points. Stupid mistake.

Scott

Not the only one to forget ☹️

Russ in W.A

Dunno about Higgins man, I'll never pick him, looked lacklustre today…..very crab-like.

Top Gun

Not so sure myself now but a week in Supercoach is a long time.

Moustachio

Thank you for trolling the SC gods like this, boosting Roughy's score and murdering Higgins. Do not anger the SC Gods!!!

hedski

Majak a late out for norf, hopefully helps Preuss score more.

Keenbutclueless

I had an awful feeling it was going to be Hibberd coming in. Not only would that play havoc with my loophole this well (unless he did a Preuss and tons up!) but the worlds most popular trade next week Hibberd to Newman was in disarray.

Tommo09

Gawn C at the moment

Could change to Danger, Selwood or Fyfe
I saw somewhere that Danger has a bad record against Melbourne? Is this correct?

Who should I pick and why?
Thanks

Steven

who is your vc?

hedski

I'm toying with Gawn as well, can see Bernie hanging off Danger all day.
Cats let Preuss do his own thing last week.

Tommo09

Not looking good for me

hedski

I broke my own rules tommo and didn't look at sc before cats game and left Danger cap (its my young fellas 8th bday). The sc gods can be good sometimes too, they are usually pricks.

Daniel

I was hearing it too – a quick look shows 155 in 2016, 74 in 2015, and 120 in 2014.

hedski

Yeah thanks Daniel just read your post above.
Dangers in good form too.

Tommo09

Swans fan anger today
Hopefully SuperCoach can make up for the terrible loss last night

The Drake

I'm considering trading Hampton into Marchbank. Worth burning a trade (and $76k) or should I hold?

hedski

I'd hold, your call.

Steven

VC nank the tank?

hedski

Not the worst move Steven.

Trent

If Houston is a late out, which is the rumour, do I want Eddy or Miles on my field instead?

Darbo

I would go eddy and hope r1 was an anomaly. Have you heard any more about Houston? All I've seen is one tweet.

hedski

Hope he's not out made the mistake of trading him in last night when I went Cameron to Preuss. At least that was a win.

THE SALTSHAKER

**** Just as a side story….wondering if anyone he can work out something for me.

The Tripple M wallies have come out and named their best forwards of all time.

CHRIS JUDD
1. Carey
2. Lockett
3. Franklin
4. Dunstall
5. Ablett

NATHAN BROWN

Was talking about this in a discussion in our SC group on FB and I was thinking in SuperCoach terms.

A young rookie Paul Salmon 206cm so think Mason Cox rookie that can actually play, was a natural forward. Played 9 games in his first year, tlhen came out and Kicked 63 goals in 13 games the leading goal kicker at the time in the AFL.

Was wondering if anyone can work out from his stats roughly (bit hard with efficiency so maybe work at league avg or something) what his 2nd year buy/starting price would be, and what it would be by the end of round 13 when he was injured in the midfield in a collision that caused a knee injury was out for a year.
http://afltables.com/afl/stats/players/P/Paul_Sal

Just out of curiosity haha i cant work it out.

Another good one would be Abletts finals appearance in 1989 lol….anyway interesting article for a bit of fun maybe?

DavidSA

Dunstall in my opinion was the best. Best lead up forward and one on one play on scenario genius work within 40 mtrs of goal, all angles. Beast kicking action and proof is in his total goals as medium sized forward

Neverweaken

Lockett in my opinion. Played in an average saints side for years. Remember him kicking 10 or 12 in a losing side against essendon

hedski

YABBLETTTT….for highlights.
Can't go past Lockett tho, machine.

Russ in W.A

Butler..Jacky Chan GOAL! haha

redgumwon

Anyone else having problems with the supercoach site? It's taking a long time to get in or I can't get in

Russ in W.A

Yeah , that and AFL website seem to running slow today, gotta keep refreshing or reloading..no "Live" scores there!

redgumwon

I think they need to lift their game. This has been happening far to often this year

Russ in W.A

Any Goldy owners out there thinking about offloading him if Preuss stays in the side?

Neverweaken

What happened to caddy? Is he injured. On 12 SC. thank god I ditched him this week

Russ in W.A

He's out there…just mega-spudding it today.

Good call on the ditching haha

Top hawk

Bet you are stoked. Shat his pants again today. Bloody useless.

hedski

He left the cats

Top hawk

Sooooo glad you pis sed him off this week. The bloke is a permanent skidmark in your jocks. Straight switch for Nank? Ud be stoked if you did. Cheers

Russ in W.A

Think I need to get Dusty into the side…what a gun!

Ian

I traded Hanners to Dusty and was regretting it until Dusty's 155! 43 points and heaps of dollars better off !

Jack

Going to pick up Goldy as a cheap 3rd ruck lol

Neverweaken

Need to get dusty in. And Cotchin seems better this year. And rance now he's slightly cheaper. Have butler and Nank. Good thing they have the r12 bye

INPieman

The Tigers won't win every game

Benschke

Dusty will never ever play in my team again

hedski

Wow

Derek

Went VC Gawn instead of danger

DefyingMadness

Unlucky

Derek

even worse. When I checked, I'd put the C on Gawn

Not having much luck with my C choices

Was having a really good week until then. Oh well

Russ in W.A

Bummer Derek, is Gawn gonna get back on?…what kind of injury does he have?

INPieman

Say it ain't so Derek! WOW

Derek

Yeah. Stuffed up my VC & C.

Had VC on Danger and C on Gawn

Russ in W.A

At least Gawn straight into Grundy is a pretty safe call.

hedski

I was gonna captain Gawn but broke my rules not checking before games (sons bday), left it on Danger.
Screw you sc gods I know you'll get me back ya pricks.

Top hawk

Hall out and the Bank in. Any regrets? No bloody way! I knew getting the Nank was vital and I am not dissapointed. Stoked!! Even if Hall tonnes up tomorrow, I could not care less. My side looks a lot more balanced now. Nankervis ended up with 106. Catchiiiinggg! $$$$

INPieman

I'm glad you wen't with it mate. I knew it was a good trade

Top hawk

Cheers pie. Despite his knowledge, perhaps Derek over researches things a bit too much I think. Research is important, but gut and instinct (and a bit of luck) are also crucial to do well in this caper. I just felt this trade, despite going against general trading rules just had to be done. Now lets hope Danger comes up with the captain goodies! Cheers mate.

Shake n bake

Gawn could be gawn!!

Derek

Yep. Put the C on him

Shake n bake

Tough luck there. I have danger into fyfe.

Derek

I should have stuck with Eddy like last week

Shake n bake

Not having much luck there with your capt choice! There saying its a hamstring with Gawn.

Top hawk

Holy crap!! This why you need the Nank.! I have Stef Martin, but that is a massive development. How bad is his hammy?

Derek

Got Nank this week
