First comment go cats

Fred

Flog

Fred

Go hawks

hedski

Flog go cattas

Dee

Up the Catttters!!!

Fred

FLOGS!
GO HAWKS

hedski

Ha ha. Love it. Go cattas.

Goofy Buffoon

MERGE TO BECOME THE MIGHTY CATHAWKS.

hedski

NEVER!!

Courtesans

Holding him. He is being rested, Hawks don't want his confidence destroyed by the Cats mids who would put him on toast. No Mitchell or Lewis gives him no support. Lets see what he is made of in the coming weeks.

FCAbel

Fair call.

Rocksta

Bad call.
He was playing shit before the rest.
Move him on!
He is SC irrelevant this year

hedski

Weak as pi$$

PJH

imagine if the Hawks missed the 8 , draft picks , an easier run next year & a second year into oll the hawk noobies , might be another flag coming

Nick

They gave up there next draft pick

whatyasmokin

That's a fast rebuild. You a fan?

BrownlowBoy

Their first round draft pick belongs to the Saints

hedski

And Jaeger belongs to the rehab ward

Big Daz

Do your homework before making such silly comments.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Fyfe into Dangerfield for captain using Barret as the loophole, the one time a rookie being dropped has a actually helped me (at least for this weekend, not for cash generation)

PJH

who's better ? an injury prone Swallow surrounded by an injury prone midfield or a cheaper George Horlin Smith surrounded by Danger & selwood

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Probably still Swallow with his scoring potential imo

whatyasmokin

If you own GHS then you don't trade him for swallow.

Wal

Swallow

Jay

I thought Schuey would go huge last night against the Swans so had the VC on him. Very happy with his 127, but not enough to go the loophole. Hopefully Danger gets his predicted 145.

whatyasmokin

Danger is kinda due for a lower one though.

Neverweaken

120-125 is decision time for me. Guaranteed 254 or maybe 280? Take the 254

whatyasmokin

Yeah if he only gets 100, 50 points is a fair bit to miss out on.

Scored >127, 10 times last year.

Wedge

If danger only gets 100 as capt you only miss out on 27 pts not 50.

whatyasmokin

If he takes 127 = 254 captain score.

Takes 100 from Danger = 200 captain score.

Loses 54 points………

Bf23

127 x 2 + 100 = 354

100 x 2 + 127 = 327

Therefore you don't lose 54 points you lose out on 27

whatyasmokin

yeah as I hit enter I realised………..fail

whatyasmokin

lol what am I smokin you are right.

hedski

Smashed the hawks last year… 160 Monday.

Wedge

If Danger gets 145 and you don't have him capt you miss out on 18 pts. But it he goes off with concussion for eg in first qtr and he's only on peanuts you'll spew

Jeffery

Jock and community I traded in witts for gawn on thursday and am now regretting it, will i lose a trade if i now trade witts to martin due to the round already starting?

Kenny

yes

whatyasmokin

Regretting it before he's even played. Ouch.

FCAbel

Witts will go well mate

Neverweaken

Be happy with Witts. I'm running Sandiwitts since last week. Backed him against Hawks and will back him against Kruezer

Ben

Who should I loophole Bont,fyfe or Selwood.
Concerned Bont will be tagged tonight
Thoughts???????

FCAbel

Bont. Tag not a bother

hedski

Pretty hard to loop Jelwood?

Hello

Should we take Newmans 80 or back in Hampton?

whatyasmokin

Scores of 50, 64 and 84.

If he gets his top score again you gain 4 points, his lowest score you lose 30.

Conners

Take the 80 I reckon.

Jib_Jib

As a general rule I take any rookie score over 70.

Danners

You've gotta take 80 from a rookie

Conners

Should I take Shueys 127 or bank on Danger or Martin?

whatyasmokin

Take it.

Jib_Jib

I'd bank Danger. Yeah he might be due for a lower score but he's in rare form.

raffaruci

What's going on with Heater?? Anyone else worried?

Courtesans

Yep. Bought him as a keeper, an expensive one at that.

Dave

Trade him. He's spent

raffaruci

Starting to think that myself, the games getting past him poor old heater, fwd line pressure acts are a hit this season

Mich

Come off it

Josh

Agreed traded him and will get him back later at cheaper price if needed. Other defenders Lloyd, Adams, Laird producing consistent numbers.

Derek

GWS success. Ball in defence less.

neil Demons Delight

Heater will come good hopefully when I get him cheap

Jib_Jib

Not thrilled but no role change + no injury = hold. So far I've had bigger problems to worry about.

Top Gun

Please trade Heater so he can go nuts with a 160+

Danners

Teams have used coolers, should come back to form though

hedski

Anyone worried come round 11 and ya got no trades?

Lachy

Literally nothing wrong with heater… he is playing in the best team obviously the ball isn't down his end..

Neverweaken

Elliot yo yo is teasing me again. One of my never again players but looking good this year. And will still be under 500k.
Please talk me out of it. Or into it

Russ in W.A

He's never been a Mid/Fwd before has he?…so I think he's just relishing his new freedom and making the most of it…I'm very tempted myself.

Lazza

A Leopard and his spots !!!

Russ in W.A

He has so far, Mid/Fwd is a big difference from Defence only.

Josh

Yeo has burnt me in the past also. I traded Shaw for Newman and added Murphy to mid. For JOM Gives me enough cash to trade in Adams next week. Should have started with Adams.

Borko

Very early days but I may trade out higgins next week for a genuine keeper.

I think Macrae looks good … four scores between 90 and 110. Will be 515-520k

Will wait on Yeo … will be $50k well spent if he proves he is a genuine keeper by mid season … still a bit too risky at this stage.

Tried and Trusted

Anyone know if swallow is okay to play tommorow? heard he may have been carrying a minor injury

Lazza

All good… He only had a corky..

Lazza

Those who dumped Goldy might be feeling a bit off colour at the moment …

Derek

cant beat quality

Tophawk

The ruckman nightmares continue for many coaches. Especially those that moved Goldy on this week. Goldy seems to be playing some decent footy today. 53 SC at the half. Still not sure if he will tonne up as Pruess is pinching plenty of his points.

Russ in W.A

Goldy mustv'e had a huge whinge to the Coach about what everyone was saying about him not being the number one Ruckman anymore.

neil Demons Delight

gawn and goldy still 1and 2 but witts sandy pruess still value

whatyasmokin

Was obviously playing second fiddle due to injury. Now he's back.

Russ in W.A

The Roos look ordinary but the Dogs look terrible.

Russ in W.A

Much better second half than that first half rubbish.

Ronnyjohn

Dogs by 40 roos couldn't hold a lead if their lives depended on it

Conan_the_Westy

That proved prophetic…the outcome, not the margin.

Tophawk

Higgins= Burnman. I cant believe I was looking at him a few weeks ago. Glad I came to my senses. Bloody terrible up to three quarter time.

Top Gun

Yes i got sucked in again and the supercoach Gods slapped me silly

Danners

Podcasts are still coming out, therefore Higgins has no relevance

hedski

I'd give that comment 20 likes Danners

Touk tuk

DHAL!!!! Ohhh boy

Tophawk

He good boy. Thats why you gotta have him. GUN

Conan_the_Westy

The blessing of SuperCoach is that while I lick my wounds as a Kangaroos supporter, I can at least get the benefit of 145 points from Dahl.

Joshua

Field Taranto or Parfitt?

BrownlowBoy

Loophole with Barrett

Joshua

hows that work?

Randomcliche

Put first playing player on the bench with e. Second put the dummy on field. If the first player stuffs it up, switch in the second player. Cheers

Joshua

Thanks mate.

hedski

Seen a few teams swap Maxy for Preuss on field….
Ouch.

Jib_Jib

I know! Gotta trade Maxy out. That's far too much money sitting on the bench for 12 weeks!

whatyasmokin

Lone wolf ruck like Witts easily worth the extra 93K, I reckon even Spencer at 236K would've been worth it.

hedski

Sry guys not sure if you read that right. They have traded Max and put Preuss R1!!!!
MADNESS..

hedski

Oh no Derek not you too??!?!

Derek

lobbe wasn't playing!

Jib_Jib

Not the worst move if they've used the $$$ to bring in a premo elsewhere, not what I'd do though.

Youngy

Ye that was me. Gawn –> Preuss. Leaving me with SandiPreuss. Noticed cash gen was going to be hard so I did it. Regreting it now…

hedski

Was gonna do Gawn to Witts for cash gen too, but decided to swing Nank up (nankilands and Preuss) and got Rooey in, might even whack the C on him this arvo. Hope his knees hold up….

jpb69

Bit concerned about Buddy and Lynch combo in my forward line, both under performing. Hopefully Lynch has a blinder this week

Russ in W.A

Buddy did cop a painful corky early in the game though, limited his mobiliy.

jpb

Saw that , is there more to it ? Last week he looked hesitant in havin a shot at goals – quick to hand ball, always seemed out of positon.

Carloss

I can cover Jagers week off easily, but i also have the $$ available to turn him into oliver. Not sold he is a keeper though. He definitely seems to be on the fantasy improve though. Thoughts?

Lazza

127 no where near enough… 140 is the new 130..

Lazza

Fools Gold ..(ignore previous comment… Meant for other post)

Top Gun

Wait a week and see how Oliver performs without a Gawn.

Wellsey

I came first in AUS in CoachKings for the Richmond/WC game last weekend and collected $150. Unrelated to the chew but I'm obnoxiously telling everyone.

Jimbo

Shaun Bloody Higgins only scored 75!!!

Lazza

Supercon

Juzzy

As a saints fan who traded Nick Roo to Higgins may I just say ….

AAARGHRHG …

whatyasmokin

I feel for you that's rough.

Jimbo

Trade ??

whatyasmokin

Maybe give him till the byes?

Frank the Tank

I'm spewing that I changed my VC from Dahlhaus to Fyfe when I found out that Barrett got dropped

hedski

We all thought that.

Tophawk

VC on Fyfe and C on Danger. Barrett the C and/or E swinger if required. Nail both at the same time and BANG!

Jack

did the same….but think Danger will go 150+ so hopefully won't matter

Tyruddanaut

290 in the bank for me

Derek

Goldy still has a lot of improvement to do. Attended 67 stoppages to Preuss 27, big change from last week. However Goldy only won 29 hit outs compared to 17 for Preuss.

Juzzy

Agree Derek.

He did look up for the fight tonight though. Tackled hard, presented as a target on half back and wings all game.
I am glad I don't have him but if I did I reckon holding him for one more week might be wise.

hedski

Maybe his ankle is OK?
Was rooted last week.

INPieman

Goldy looked better. But Preuss impacts his scoring a lot. I'm sure goldy will dip to 500 or even under that soon

The BONT

What do people think of this Trade

Shaw and Taranto
OUT FOR
Murphy and Burton (was going to go Newman but ran out of time)

neil Demons Delight

must be the odd one out shaw will come good only time

Hubba

Shaw will come good. Surely you have more pressing problems to concentrate on. Murphy wont have the legs and wont be a top 10 mid

whatyasmokin

Scary

Cr0magn0n

Shaw is a gun, he'll finish as a top 6 defender and you'll wish you hadn't traded him out.

NumbNuts

Shawly you jest

Tyruddanaut

Stop holding on! Shaw has had his time but now it's over

The BONT

What do i do with Taranto then
no money left

Dean Billman

Hold him, still some cash to be made.

The BONT

Can you reverse trades when your players havent played that you traded in and out

Krups

No. One the round starts and you trade they become permanent

Youngy

Sadly not

Matt

Take bont's 113 or back in the danger man against hawthorn?

Juzzy

Same boat.

Danger.

hedski

Jelwood

SF4

113 isn't enough.

Daniel

Who should I play on field and who should i use the emergency loophole with out of SPP and Taranto?

uDonkey

I think I'm travelling well this round. In all the leagues im in, im the only who have 7 players score of 710. Left the VC Franklin thought he'll go big after last weeks loss, which he took it really hard. Now will have depend on Danger as my Cap or take a gamble on Fyfe.

What do ya guys think?
Danger vs Fyfe as Cap for this week.

uDonkey

Only one who have used 7 players*

Hate it when your brain thinks too fast than your fingers. Tend to miss a words here there.

johnno2908

Trading in Dusty this week. But who do I trade him for?
Option 1: Trade Gawn, move Nank to ruck and give sht cnt Caddy 1 more chance with a 136BE.
Option 2: Sht cnt Caddy to Dusty, means I have to field Hannan. Leave Gawn on the bench for a week, then trade.

marcusproudson

Get rid of caddy for sure I reckon he might even be dropped soon. Has been terrible. Who are your three rucks at the moment

johnno2908

Gawn, Sandi, Nank and Strndik. My team is shit this year

marcusproudson

Nank has been averaging over 100 so if you have sandi and him as your rucks I would still expect a 200 combine score. Then trading caddy to Martin is a good option. Martin could go massive again and even if he doesn't he will still get over 100. Sit on Gawn til next week then bring in maybe grundy move nank back forward. That's what I would do

marcusproudson

I think grundy will be the no.1 ruck by seasons end

whatyasmokin

He'll be up there but not if he has performances like last week, really low DE and bugger all hitouts to advantage.

Gaz

Gawn to either Steff or Grundy and get rid of Caddy.

marcusproudson

Gawn and caddy both need to be traded. In D.Martin and Grundy. But if you only have one left I'd go D.Martin in first and run nank and sandi as your rucks

johnno2908

Only 1 trade left as I brought in Newman. Either option sees Nank and Sandi as on field rucks this week. Option 1 might lose me a bit of cash on Caddy, but means I have Caddy on field instead of Hannan. Not sure that will see many points gained though!

Tophawk

Get rid of Caddy now! Should have traded him out last week. He has been so scheit that he deserves a new name. SCATTY. Whack Nank in the ruck, and replace Scatty for Dusty. Then deal with Gawn next week. See who backs up bigger this round between Steff and Grundy this week and trade in the winner next week. Then Nank back forward and Sandi and S. Martin/Grundy as your R2 and R1 ready to go for round 5. Job done! Just my take. Good luck.

johnno2908

That's what I did prior to lockout, but Hannan on ground concerns me. Although Melbourne with a few outs, might score ok

Loop

Cadudy?

Tony

Eddy out for M Murphy or Taranto out for Sloane or Dusty guys

whatyasmokin

Sloane

whatyasmokin

*Sloane. Gun. Low ownership POD.

Dusty spurs

Take dalhaus 145 as captain or back in danger?

Rocksta

Bank the 145.
Even of Danger gets 160, you are only losing 15 points. It's not worth the risk.

INPieman

Take the 145 every day! Great score

neil Demons Delight

DAHLS score is great tossed up with him and JPK went wrong way

whatyasmokin

You should take 130+ any day of the week I reckon.

Derek

Show off! πŸ˜‰

smote

Who is your Captains loophole? I got Dahl as VC and Eddy as my C loophole on field….praying for no late outs for Port as happened 2 weeks ago.

whatyasmokin

Should be fine I assume they can only late in off the emergency list?

Rivo

Taranto or Parfit on field at M8? Have Parfitt on bench as loophole but how do I work that?

Rivo

*Barrett on bench.

Rocksta

Put Taranto on the bench with the 'E' on him, and Barrett on field. If Taranto scores well, leave it as it is and you'll get Taranto's score after Brisbane play.
If he doesn't score well, sub Parfitt on the field for Barrett before the start of the Brisbane game. This will enable you to get Parfitt's score.

Rocksta

Whom else do you have on the midfield bench?

Rivo

Barrett, Taranto & O'Mera. Parfitt at M8, Pickett on forward bench at F7.

Rocksta

Put Taranto on the bench with the 'E' on him, and Barrett on field. If Taranto scores well, leave it as it is and you'll get Taranto's score after Brisbane play.
If he doesn't score well, sub Parfitt on the field for Barrett before the start of the Brisbane ga8ne. This will enable you to get Parfitt's score.

Rivo

Thanks Rocksta! Makes sense now.

marcusproudson

Whats everyone's thoughts on JOM.. I've held him this week but his scores and knee problem is now a real concern. But I don't really see an obvious trade for him either, especially since swallow will rise in price after this week

whatyasmokin

Failed midpricer like Mills down to Newman, and JOM up to gun would be ideal.

Also many things using swingsets could be achieved.

Or even a downgrade to Robbie Fox.

But alas most of these ships have sailed.

marcusproudson

I've got Newman so I'd have to wait til next week. If he plays I'll probably hold him but if he misses another week he will go. Who to bring in is the question. Ideally I'd like to go up to beams as I see him being a keeper til seasons end. And he's not too pricey as yet

Derek

There are so many similarities with Brad Crouch of last year. Almost identical starting price. Brad played first two rounds, them missed, one week became two, then 3. Came back r7 & 8, missed a few more………

whatyasmokin

Yep as soon as I heard out for a week that was it bang.

marcusproudson

Yeah its bad signs. I don't see an obvious replacement for $360k though which is what I'll have unless I burn two trades downgrading someone else for extra cash

sCripps

It seems like a lot of discussion going on about heavy trading. So I thought I'd just give everyone a friendly reminder to put down the mouse and pick up some chocolate this Easter. We already have a few examples of promos having poor starts and starting to turn things around. Hold firm!

I'm strategically looking ahead and want 20 trades left come round 9 where I plan to do some premo upgrades through the bye rounds. I have used 2 trades so far, so I'm tracking well?

How many trades have people used and how many trades do you hope to have come the bye rounds – round 9

Ben

Have used 3 plan to have 20

Winter

Only used 2
Taranto to Hoskin-Elliot
Hibberd to Newman
Really got no problems other then Hanners and Shaw but gotta hold

Tyruddanaut

4 :(. But I I'll cam down from now on and get 19-20 trades

John James

Used 4 so far Crouch to Bont Shaw to Adams JOM to Martin Smithy to Newman Happy with all four trades,since they have improved my team,only plan to use another six trades before the byes.

John James

I take part of that back JOM to Dusty this week was not very good timing.

BockChoy

4 trades of which 3 were injury cover (Gawn, Rampe and Smith).

Tophawk

Fyfe into Dangerfield this week. Eddy to be used as both the captain and forward emergency loophole option. If Fyfe goes 140+ then BANG the C goes on Eddy after the Freo/demons game. Only a very short window to do this as the GWS and Port match starts 10 minutes after the conclusion of the Freo match. My opponent does not have Taranto in Trig's league. Getting his points strategic so the E will go on him on my forward line. Eddy to deliver his points also. Eddy very very useful this week. BANG BANG! And this time, he better not be a late in! Welcome

whatyasmokin

Yeah I'm using him too. Late in will kill me.

Tophawk

Barrett might still be handy for a little midfield E loophole manoevre planned for tomorrow.

whatyasmokin

Not confident on SPP vs GWS this week I already put the E on Fox.

Have SPS and GHS on field have a feeling they will both outscore him easily.

Derek

my captains last two weeks have been Eddy and Gawn. Think I might go fyfe into danger this week for something different

Tophawk

I will be watching out for the late ins and outs for the Port-GWS match. Any hint of Eddy playing would mean a last minute reshuffle. I am out this afternoon on a family outing so l cannot watch the Freo game. (Just monitor the stats on fanfooty) My mobile phone will be 100% charged before I leave the house today. My gut tells me that the super coach gods could be dropping in for a visit today. Cheers

whatyasmokin

Can't they only bring in emergencies at this point? Eddy is not on the list.

Steeeve

I saw that, ouch. What's your rank after those two disasters?

Winter

Houston or Parfitt on field, can't loophole with anyone

whatyasmokin

Parfitt? Flip a coin maybe.

Col

Still not sure which way to go
1. Gawn to Roo, swing Nank in ruck (leaves no ruck cover)
Or
2. Gawn to witts, bank the $$$ & upgrade a rookie next week

Winter

Gawn to Roo, premium for premium

whatyasmokin

Like Witts. last chance to get a decent lone wolf ruck this cheap.

Jimmy

Shaw and Omeara out for Burton and Sloan or

Roughy and Omeara out for Murphy and Dan Butler/ Broomhead

whatyasmokin

Don't like either one sorry. Should hold Shaw and Roughy just got 100, hold him too.

bob the builder

Choose 2 on field out of,
Marchbank, Otten, Hampton?

whatyasmokin

Marchbank and Otten, although Hampton seems to be building.

Chenz

Community would you take pruess's 60 or roll the dice with the under performing hannan?

whatyasmokin

Almost take it, Hannan has been useless with only 10 touches a game.

neil Demons Delight

Hannan could go well today

Randomcliche

60 is a pass, just.

Marcus

Someone please help. Do I field Taranto or Houston? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks so much

Botswana

50/50 Marcus. Choose who you enjoy watching.

Derek

GWS will kick a big score. TT might get on the end of a few

neil Demons Delight

Taranto can go big will probably play forward mostly and will clunk a few

Stupid Coach

One trade left this week. Gawn to S Martin or JOM to Swallow. Leaning towards first option as I have no issues in the midfield.

Also, should I put the VC on Fyfe or Roo. I currently have it on Roo, however, my opponent has gone with Fyfe as C.

Thoughts????

whatyasmokin

I think covering yourself on the Fyfe as VC is a good way to go, if he gets 150+ you're safe. If he goes low you can change to someone else and have a high chance of gains.

Gawn to Witts for cheapie, or Grundy/Martin are good trades.

SideshowBob

Trade Shaun Higgins ??

JB

Keep … What's the alternative?

SideshowBob

Thinking Elliot Yeo or Toby Green

NumbNuts

SPP or Taranto on field?
I'm leaning towards Taranto at home and with SPP seemingly dropping off a little..
Thoughts?

NumbNuts

Scratch that. Just saw they are playing at Canberra. Parfitt? Welcome
