Is treloar a hold?

EatChickenNuggets

Getting his hands on the pill so yeah, I'd hold. Just got to up his efficiency. Would be a waste of a trade imo

Youngy

Ye he is a hold, he will only go down about 20k. If he is your biggest problem then you are travelling well.

@t_woof

H.O.L.D

BIGBOY

Never trade a premium if his not injured…. I got him as well n I'm ranked 2nd overall

pete

oi do i know you how was your easter bbq lol

Rick

Only upgrade premos when you've finished upgrading everyone else

DavidSA

Haha avg 96 after 4 rounds hardly a problem
Next 4 rounds could avg 120 and 105-110 for rest of season decent m8 ty

Danners

You're trading a top 10 midfielder from last year, HOLD

Scott

Old ockers spreadsheet shows the end of last season for him was great also.

EatChickenNuggets

Thoughts on getting in Hanners this week? Didn't see him play but stats suggest he had a great 2nd half on the weekend and has played most of the tougher opponents already for the immediate future (barring this week)? Surely he's ready to go bang, and I don't want to miss out

Youngy

Id stay clear for a bit, unsure if he will make it back to ultra premo output and top 8 mids. He has a nice rd 11 bye so keep that in mind. So he could be a good trade in option rd 12

Steeeve

I'm jumping on. He, Cripps and Pendles were in my top 8 mids at the start of the season so they're the ones I'm bringing in (barring injury). Cream rises.

Randomcliche

Danger fyfe + 3 more???

Steeeve

Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Hanners, Bont, Cripps, Treloar. I picked Beams and T Mitch for value/potential top 8.
Thayne's my preseason top 8. Hammers and Crisps won't finish top 10 now but could easily be top 10 from this point onward. Same for Treloar who I already have.

No Rocky or Gaj who are big injury risks.

hedski

Jelwood

Youngy

Cheers for the Podcast Lads

Steeeve

I hope not many of you lot play the stock market. So many people want to bring in blokes who are off to belting starts and pay top dollar. Not to mention drop premos and lock in a loss.
You start with some premos and identify others you want to pick up throughout the season. If those guys we hoped could be upgrade targets get off to slow starts we should be thanking the supercoach gods we can pick them up cheap.
Instead coaches worry about these blokes' form even though every year premos prove themselves despite any rough patches.
Hannebery, Cripps, Treloar, Simpson, Buddy, Shaw, etc are all welcome to join my team asap.

whatyousmokin

I was going to lock in sloane but the more I think about it the more I cant go past JPK at 580k

Top Gun

Sloane is a must have I think.

whatyasmokin

Yep but I feel I won't get JPK any cheaper, Sloane I possibly will, and I want both. Makes sense to save the cash.

DavidSA

Dusty perfect example
Blokes (lady's) too brought him in before this round and payed top price for a sub 60 score.
Now for the ones who did not pay top con can grab him for less than the starting price.

I have a rul though pay no more than 620k for a uber premium and 550k for a premium midfielder

DavidSA

Top coin*

whatyousmokin

JPK is locked in, Sloane after byes. Mid complete Rocky, Fyfe, Danger, JPK, Sloane, Treloar and Oliver and Beams can become Pendles and Merett/Dusty/Bont

Steeeve

I should mention JPK almost always dips lower than $580k at some stage.

In a year when it's more difficult than usual to make cash, I'm looking to pick off cheap premos (as long as I really want them anyway) and sacrifice a few of the Sloane/JPK types who just don't happen to be available at a discount.

You can only have 8 of these blokes after all and there are about 20 great options.

whatyasmokin

Yep feel like I'll probably miss out on Selwood, Dusty, Bont,Cripps, Hanners and Parker.

Want Zerrett for the POD factor. If Oliver becomes a keeper I can't even get Zerrett, after Pendlebury comes in for Beams.

CJudd3Votes

Cripps isn't right, I'm a blues supporter and have a huge man crush on the lad but was at the game Saturday night and he looks real sore, struggling to get out of first. Honestly believe it's time to jump off

Blues

Spot on. Doesn't even look close to fit. It's a real shame because SC aside, he is a great footballer to watch

Steeeve

He's not fit at the moment but he will be later on. And at that point I'm jumping on him for cheap.
I'll then be at 'full premo' in the mids. However, will look to bring in Pendles as a luxury trade when Beams inevitably breaks down and/or I am hit with some other injury.

OldOcker

Old Dog learn new trick maybe, Ballic, Every time I have tried that I have fallen off the bloody couch.
Maybe get rid of Mitchell Hibberd and Try once more this week.

Dildor

I wish 4 weeks ago i had fallen off the Crouch.

Camo

Jock, Elliot Yeo….do you think he can keep it up?

Lach

no.

TheScacman

Roughead to go next week after what looks like his final price rise, with a forward structure of Dahlhaus, Nank, Macrae, Buddy and WHE onfield (Houston and Eddy on the bench) who comes in? got 140K in the bank having brought Balic in for Florent, not seeing a eye catching downgrade option and probably priced out of a move for Roo at this point

TheScacman

Other option is to upgrade one of my rookies down back, having Marchbank, Otten, Newman and Hampton all on the field is a minor concern in case they all spud up.

Give us some input community

Finnius123

Bring Roughy down to Balic and then upgrade Marchbank to any back premo (probs taylor adams if you don't have him)

Super_Freak

Yeo, but money maybe better spent trying to upgrade a mid.

Dean

You are crazy not to go Roughead to Roo this week, Roo has a B/E of 74 and is predicted to increase $25k yet Roughy has a B/E of 76 and is projected to increase $7 however I think Roughy has a greater chance to not make his breakeven which would mean you wont be able to afford Roo next week if he goes up $25k as predicted.

I'm jumping off Roughy this week.

Disillusioned

I spent damn good coin on this year's magazine and what did it get me – bloody Matty Crouch!

At least I can use it to wipe my @rse after I flush that turd down the dunny forever and bring in a proper premium who actually wants to kick the friggin footy!

Youngy

You can't pick all the winners, there is a portion of luck

PJ King

I upgrading Matt crOUCH to Taylor Adams while I can still afford it. It hurts, but it'll hurt more to keep the slacker!

Russty_

I'm sure Jock's magazine didn't tell you to pick Crouch definitively, it was your call in the end, and if you know anything about the Crouch Brothers, well, just avoid them both at all costs!….and I won't even charge you for that πŸ™‚

Kev

Bloody Jock! How dare he give out advice that is not 100% correct all the time.

The gall of that man!

hedski

Hmm, M.Crouch and Bernie Tomic both in a form slump….
They are the SAME PERSON.

Moustachio

Pretty sure the mag identified one Clayton Oliver as a looming breakout candidate??

Leeds17

Suggested had the game but wouldnt get the game time,

George

Is there any word on when David Myers will be back

Joshua

He is right but has to stay out till round 5 since he was placed on the long term injury list. Could come in this week or next week I'm not sure.

Joshua

Cheers mate

George

Sorry Joshua messed that up haha

Joshua

All good Georgy boy

Danny

Should I hold Shaun Higgins for 1 more week

Youngy

Yes most defintely.

Krups

SPP down to Balic? SPP has BE of 45

Youngy

hes a hold for mine. He is only 227k. I think he still has a big game in him. Id trade a non playing rookie if u have one.

Kev

Had Carlton and Brisbane next. Then West Coast and Gold Coast before his round 9 bye. If he can post a decent score against the Blues he can ride and hopefully be up around the 300k mark

Lach

SPP is the type of rookie that can hit a 70-80 average .

Ja191

hold for atleast a week, more important rookies to look at trading out.

DavidSA

I reckon he has a few big games coming starting with Carlton
I have said in past posts he has clearly struggled when his team has with a fast team ie Crows and GWS, coincidence? Well shall see

Lenny

Brodie Grundy or Stefan Martin

Youngy

For mine, Martin. But you can't go wrong with either

SF4

Probably the top 2 rucks come seasons end so whichever you chose will do you fine.

Super_Freak

Martin

Top

Will Higgins get tagged this week by Connor blakely?

Top Gun

No. You only tag good players. Lol

Russty_

Not if you trade him out this week lol

hedski

Taranto to Ballick and Roughy to Stef, Nank swings fwd.

Soothsayer

Similar for me. Roughy to Baltic and O'meara up to Sloane. Or do I just wait and see how the Hawks bounce back?

Swans2012

I think omeara gets another week if you've held him last week, I'm giving him one, looked good a couple back….

Russty_

My philosophy is, all Hawks should be purged down the dunny!

Russty_

I like that Hedski, should net you an extra 70 points or so this round, and in future rounds.

hedski

Cheers guys, started Beams, Sandi and Roughy as my fallen premo/injury risks, while Rough may turn it around I'm happy to cut and run to get Stef in before his price gets out of reach.

whatyasmokin

Great trades.

Brad

Community, what's are your thoughts on the below.

Trading out Crouch from Mids and bringing in Matera via DPP (moving parfitt from fwd field to mid bench, hibberd to def bench, Jake Lloyd from def to mid and Hampton from def bench to field.) gives me $275k to upgrade rookies in next few weeks and plenty of flexibility when Matera needs to be traded.

Lee

I wouldnt get Matera at all and I would advise against playing Hampton

whatyousmokin

Shooting themselves in the foot I reckon.

Tommo09

Def: Laird, Simpson, Tuohy, Otten, Hampton, Newman (Stewart, Hibberd)
Mid: Danger, Selwood, Bont, Fyfe, Kennedy, TMitch, O'Meara, SPP (Parfitt, Barrett, Pickett)
Ruc: Nank, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Lynch, Kennedy, Steele, Rough, Butler, Houston (Eddy, Hannan)

Thinking one trade this week
Eddy to Williamson

Holding Rough for one more week at the moment but might go Rough to Dahl while I still can

25 trades and $238.5k left after that one

Thoughts community

Youngy

Balic????

Tommo09

Doesn't appeal hugely to me as he scored 73 last week and as someone has said this week, kicked an important goal that boosted his score

May change my mind and go Eddy to Balic instead of Williamson

Youngy

Fair enough, I just see balic as a better option.

I admire your discipline to hold Roughy, and think it is the right move

Captain Risky

Balic has played against the Bulldogs( Perth) and then Melbourne ( MCG) in his 1st 2 games though, it's not like he's been up against Hawthorn, Carlton or Brisbane πŸ™‚

( God I love seeing Hawthorn on the bottom…..And they took Vickery off tigers for 500K,./… And they gave away their 1st round pick to the saints…Couldn't get better could it??, Ohh wait, they play Sam Mitchell and the Eagles this week, Please God, yes!

whatyasmokin

Teams actually pay money for Vickery? I always thought he was a volunteer/mascot

Russty_

Worst trade Hawks ever made, lol, and Tigers too, the guy should still be playing in the suburban leagues.

TheLoneRanger

That's Gold, RISKY, Gold !!!!

Liam

Pull the trigger on Roughy

whatyousmokin

Agree Roughy to Dahlhaus is a good trade.

Liam

Taranto and Marchbank out

Balic and Bont in. BANG BANG

Although Taranto and Marchbank might have some cash left in them I think it is better in the long run to trade them out and get a premo in.

Thoughts Community ?

Rocksta

See my post below.

Good trades!

whatyasmokin

Trades are ok. You don't really have much cash in the bank do you? I'd probably hold and milk them more.

TT – BE 38
March – BE 46

Liam

230k prior to trades. 30k left now.

In previous years I have held onto rookies too long and have fallen behind so this year I am trading hard and might have to miss out on a possible 50k odd but feel it's worth it because I gain a lot more points.

whatyasmokin

Yep fair enough.

Rocksta

Agreed.
I've finished in the top 1000 most years by trading hard, and am way off the pace this year by being considered.
Time to get back to my roots and start upping the ante!
An extra $20- $30k in cash genetation isn't worth the liss of points………..as long as you aren't tradind sideways.. . .that is a big no no and NEVER works!

Rocksta

Try again:
'Agreed.
I've finished in the top 1000 most years by trading hard, and am way off the pace this year by being considered.
Time to get back to my roots and start upping the ante!
An extra $20- $30k in cash generation isn't worth the loss of points………..as long as you aren't trading sideways.. . .that is a big no no and NEVER works!'

Russty_

From reading the testimonials of past winners, I was surprised to read some of the trades they did, and when they did them.
Often, they did them when you'd least expect it, not for maximum cash generation or because it was "the right time", but more on what is seems was a gut feeling, and seemed to jump onto the right person, who was just getting on a tear of smashing points, and was also a good price at the time.

An overwhelming constant in their attitudes towards trading was , from what I can ascertain, is ruthlessness, not holding too long.
Still makes me think, that a lot of success can come from risk, ruthlessness, and above all, gut feeling.

The BONT

Hibberd and Eddy OUT

Ballic and Williamson IN

Solid trade or not

Youngy

Solid trades.

whatyasmokin

Hopefully Eddy gets named he has more cash to make.

Joshua

Barrett and eddy chances to be named in future surely.

Youngy

I can see Barret being named. Like seriously what have Brisbane got to lose.

Eddy on the other hand is a worry.

Swans2012

Eddy to Balic looking a possibility, don't like losing a trade for 20k but he feels a bit forgotten @port.

Chief

Eddy good chance to play as he had a great game in reserves.

Rocksta

So when you strip it back, does wasting a trade for $20K seem like a good idea?
Of course not! This time of the season is about cash generation and similarly upgrading to Keepers.
Only make such a wasteful trade if you are looking at a doughnut. Remember we have rolling lockouts so such trades can be and are last minute.

whatyasmokin

Yep people trade before the rolling lockout, and it's done.

Swans2012

It's not purely for the 20k though obviously is it rok, it's for the cash balic makes when eddy isn't playing. So yes it still may be a good idea if eddy is going to miss the next 3-5 rounds. If eddy is back this week or next then no it'd be a waste. Just need to get my crystal ball working…..

Jack

Was going to release Heater last week but the community talked me out of it. What's the thoughts? Trade now?

Randomcliche

Hold for the season unless injured 3+ weeks or role change. Plenty will bring him in, but not will be able to at the most opportune time. You just need to nail the likes of Treloar and Hannas at the right price. Don't lock in those cash losses, hold!

whatyasmokin

May as well hold, not sure if I'm even going to lock him in when price falls honestly.

Will only have one spot left after I lock in Howe and Laird. I guess heater might make D6.

One or two 150-200's and a bunch of crap scores are useless to me honestly.

DavidSA

Was on track to score 95 hold!
Also GWS playing 4/5 decent midfields

Danners

You're thinking of trading a top 2 defender from the past couple of seasons, HOLD

Moustachio

Everyone else will be trading him in, just as you are getting rid of him. Then he will bust out a 200 like last season just to spite you. One of the most consistent SC players in terms of season average and top ranking for position. Hold, and do not anger the SC gods by even thinking of dropping him.

The BONT

Don't trade out Trealoar the Magpies are practicing KICKING at training

DavidSA

I saw that, they had cut out men wearing Collingwood and Essendon guernseys to kick at and moved the Essendon ones in the middle of the of the pack

Russty_

Doesn't stop him from banging it on the boot, willy nilly without thinking like he does most of the time.

Rocksta

I know I should hold my rookies for 1 more week based on their BE's, but Fk it!
Taranto for Rocky via DPP, and Marchbank for Fisher via DPP ( had Adams in the guts). Not confident re Balic's JS considering Ross is winning games again.
Leaves me with quite a bit still in the bank to turn Witts into Grundy next week( 1 trade).
I've been 'considered' so far this year, and it ain't working for me. Time to bring it on!

whatyasmokin

Witts only has a breakeven of 10………

Rocksta

Ok.
WHE to Roo then. Thoughts?

Liam

It depends on what that they score next week so wait til then so you know who is cooked cash gen wise.

whatyasmokin

I don't mind the Taranto and Marchbank for Rocky and Fisher.

Was just saying that Witts should last a bit longer than until next week. Hopefully he smashes out a ton+ this round, easily capable.

He beat Kreuzer last week (36 vs 23 hitouts) just not enough to advantage, four more to advantage and he would've got 99.

Week before he got 114 vs McEvoy. (40 vs 28 hitouts)

Massive potential to make more cash.

Moustachio

The fk kind of cash are you holding…

Lachy

No love for mummy? I honestly think he'll be the #1 ruckman this year. Playing for a strong team, pretty much 90%+ ruck time. And gathers the pill when needed. Head to head between him Grundy and Stef Martin in my opinion,

whatyasmokin

Shhhh he's my ruck POD to bring in after byes, has round 13 and nobody will have him.

Randomcliche

Agreed. Wish I'd pulled the trigger last week!

Danners

Yes he has had a pretty good start to the season as well which is what he has done in previous years before getting injured. A solid POD for now

Mitch

Jezz I wish that podcast went for hours! Marvellous stuff again fellas.
Hopefully you'll start doing longer podcast Becuase there is a lot of un answered questions

Mitch

Hello community thoughts on trades.
I have Trelor, Shaw and Higgins in my team with 140k in the bank. Any suggestions on trades. Balic looking like someone to bring in, 26 trades remaining. Thoughts left right and centre!!!!,

Mitch

Maybe eddy for balic? But still Higgins shaw and trelor warring me!

whatyasmokin

I'm skipping Balic, going with my gut here.

But I also have a big bank so am locking in JPK and MC Crayfish for SPP and WHE.

Finnius123

Keep WHE for a little while longer. They reckon he will be at 450k by round 8

whatyousmokin

Who reckons? Highly doubtful.

Finnius

Supercoach gold projections

whatyousmokin

49 BE, hitting 70's. Had one good score. Uncontested touches and relies on goals to score. Keeping Marchbank instead. Its also because I have a weak forward line and sick of 70 at F4, followed by butler and houston in F5, F6.

Another thing is I feel march will score bigger at AO vs port than WHE in the anzac day clash at MCG.

iLoveNMFC

Thoughts community? 220k in the bank.

O'Meara to Murphy
Pickett to Balic
OR
Roughy to Riewoldt

Murphy worth the extra trade? Cheers

Ja191

Murphy not worth it at this price especially with the tag coming, Pickett to Balic is a solid trade or could even go O'Meara to Balic for the extra $

whatyasmokin

Not convinced reiwoldt will last the season, but I say that every year and he proves me wrong.

I've just locked in McCrae myself, to go alongside Dahlhaus, Nank and Steele. It's like a bunch of toyota corollas should be pretty reliable.

Top Gun

Steele doing well but expect him to turn into a Mitsubishi soon

whatyousmokin

Yeah but for 350k should be serviceable(lol)all year, and can be last to upgrade as he gets midfield minutes. If he flops before byes I'll get rid of him.

Russty_

I think Steele will only continue to improve, he's already surpassed Bruce, Dunstan, Acres, Membrey etc etc, every other manbun in the side lol

Russty_

Blasphemy!…St Nick will last the whole season, and dominate, like the super champ he is, can you tell I'm a Saints fan?

whatyasmokin

Yes I can πŸ˜‰

Dryyak

Tuohy to Laird? i just see so many inconsistencies in tuohy, or am i being reckless?

krups

I am thinking that myself

whatyasmokin

I think you should deal with players like Tuohy later, just got you a score in the 90's, give him a break.

DavidSA

Yeah want a good sc rule listen in
If a midpricer is avg 80+ u broke even and thus should not be on ur to do list till the byes

DavidSA

That's why I am culling Hickey and not Steel

SF4

I've got Tuohy and I'm holding. He has the ability to score well as shown with 100 and a 96. Once he heats up he could be a decent Pod as a D5/D6

Jono

Thinking Florent to Balic and SPP to Grundy and swinging Nank back forward. Rough is also an option to move on…

SF4

Decent first trade but I wouldnt be trading SPP yet, another 70 and he is making cash again. Try and find someone else to trade for Grundy

Jono

I know what your saying but unfortunately don't really have any other good trade options…have Hampton Marchbank Otten Butler Houston and Parfit…could just make the one trade and hold but want to hold current rank

whatyasmokin

If trying to hold a top rank I'd go for that trade, Florent might get dropped this week anyway making it all the easier, wonder if SPP will be rested too?

whatyasmokin

*When i say top rank I mean good/high rank

Jono

Yeah holding the rank is what's pushing me to make the two trades…good luck

Jordan

Balic, Williamson, parsons, fisher,
Who would u say has better scoring potential assuming they all play next round even though parsons won't still include him

Ja191

i'd say parsons, looks a good player and geelong winning helps. See how fisher goes this week and balic/Williamson in for a failed rookie, should generate some good dough.

DefyingMadness

Should we consider lopping off Eddy/ Barret/ Taranto if they don't play this week, or is HOLDING the correct move considering I have used 4 trades already

whatyasmokin

I would lop Taranto if he doesn't play. BE 38.

Eddy should get another gig soon, but I suppose lop-able. BE -35.

Barret should be last on your list to ditch, he's in a rebuilding club, playing well and will get games. BE – 24

HB prince

Roughy to Lynch thoughts?

whatyasmokin

Nope, grab Lynch after his round 9 bye instead.

Finnius123

Yeah you will only be getting a couple of games before his bye – probably not worth it

Russty_

Adelaide Lynch yes, they won't be getting their asses handed to them every second week.

Howard Mitchell

What does the "absolute darth of the ability to achieve cash" mean, Jock????

Juzzy

Dearth.

A lack of resources.

D

Juzzy

Darth.

An evil guy with emphmysema .

Cr0magn0n

Dearth

Alex

Anyone remember when Cripps scored 170 as a rookie? He hasn't done that as a premo!!

Steeeve

Kicked arse last year. Will kick arse this year, he's just battered at the moment.

DavidSA

Perfect after bye pick up hope he stays around 500k and averages 110 rest of year

Steeeve

Exactly. Tempting to bring him in now but has a bye the first week. Same for Simmo.

Howard Mitchell

Harley bloody Balik not worth a c### full of cold water. The SuperCoach game dos not need 90% of us jumping on this dork.

whatyasmokin

Relax.

Finnius123

What's wrong with him?

Randomcliche2

Given how many 'jumped' on Newman I don't think your fears are well based. It should have been a lot more than 50k buying him. I don't think most will buy, given lack of a pressing need to downgrade any rookies for sufficient cash gen. The guy is not a must have, just the best have rookie this week. There will be another one like this next week and the week after, so chillax bro.

Steeeve

We get it he stole your lunch money 7 years ago.

Swans2012

Low tog figures though I believe, and decent js. I'll happily bring him in if someone else gets dropped

Juzzy

He will be a winner.

Rocksta

How do you know?

whatyasmokin

Nobody can really know anything in this game, all educated guesses. Or on many occasions uneducated guesses haha.

Juzzy

Obviously I don't know.

Huge stats in the 2nds .. (yes all our mothers kicked 7 goals in the Wafl).
Ross loves him. Decent js. Mid with our best chance of cash generation right now.

But yeah, it's a guess (and I traded out Nick Roo) so grain of salt.

WinnerzRGrinnerz

Marchbank to Balic via dpp?. (Hibberd to backline and bring Newman on ground as had previously ran with Marchbank, Otten and Hampton on ground). Also have Stewart on bench for cover down back.

Currently have $175k in bank and this trade would add another $180k to the kitty to go bang bang in coming weeks

Finnius

I would hold Marchbank a few more weeks at least. One of our rookies which still actually looks capable of making dosh. Try pickett maybe?

WinnerzRGrinnerz

Yeah doesn't provide same cash grab though, would be a bit of a sideways trade.

I could use cash to go up from Hampton to a Howe or Docherty over the next couple of weeks leaving only Otten and Newman as only rookies on ground in backline and to upgrade in future.

Jim_bob321

Hey community,
What do u guys think, Stewart to Newman?
Thanks

whatyasmokin

Should've got Newman last week. By holding you lost 60K. I wouldn't bother now.

Finnius123

Don't bother

Cr0magn0n

Yeah you've missed that boat.

Oliver

Great podcast as usual!

Thoughts on Roughy community? Might look to pull the trigger this week but unsure who to grab.

Cheers!

whatyousmokin

That you Clayton? Keep up the good work!

How much dosh you got?

DavidSA

Macrae if you don't have him
Also Hawkins a smokey imo

Oliver

Only got 60k atm – haven't really traded this year yet.

Oliver

My team as it stands: http://imgur.com/a/q9g0q

Treloar Titch and Franklin hurting me this year.

hedski

They'll come good mate.

Oliver

Yeah, I agree. Gotta wait it out till then!

whatyousmokin

McCrae πŸ˜‰

Joshua

Ok haha. Started the big bad MC Crayfish and he is looking tasty.

DavidSA

Hickey > Steffo!
Hibberd > Lloyd!

whatyousmokin

Arousing trades!

Beady Eye

Very good!

Ja191

Oten for Bobby Murphy or missed the boat on that? any suggestions who else or hold

BlakeyP

Missed the boat on Bobby Murphy? The boat neva sailed bud

Ja191

trading out murphy for otten in

whatyousmokin

Sailed weeks ago you must've fell asleep at the docks too many rum can.

Randomcliche2

So I've made a number of trades I now regret and I'm left with this going into the next round and $322k. .

Howe, Hodge, Touhy, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Danger, Rocky, Pendles, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, Beams, O'meara, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, JDC)
Sandiwitts, (Pruess)
Dahl, Nank, Higgins, Steele, Roughy, Butler, (Houston, Eddy)

I'm open to suggestions, and have been looking at lots of different things 1. Hold, 2, Ballic 3. Adams, 4 Roo, 5 Mummy/Martin 6. Hanners 7.JPK/Jelwood 8.Spencer (thanks podcast for another option….) or any combo of above. I realise not knowing if Barrett is named makes it tricky…but give it a shot, I'm all ears!

Juzzy

How many trades ?

Hanners and JPK will still probably drop in value this week but if Omeara doesn't get up this week I would consider upping him to a premo.

whatyasmokin

JPK has a BE of 122 I'm expecting him to go big at the SCG this week. Sydney to get their first win.

Hanners with a 108 BE they are both prime for the picking.

Next week they might be 10K cheaper if that.

Randomcliche2

25 left, done (Gawn, Armitage, Roo, Smith, Hibbard all sent packing to date).

whatyasmokin

All good trades, except roo of course but how were you to know.

Lazza

You are short a couple of Premos for this time of the season. Need to move soon, but plenty of time to correct overall.. you still need cash injection, so plan for Ballic this week and Fisher next week. Neither of Pickett, Steele, Stewart, Hampton or Marchbank have high cash growth prospects moving forward. So can sacrifice small gains for high gains. Or get rid of the bleeders.
None of Hodge, Tuohy, Steele or Roughy are keepers.. Neither is Witts. You MIDs can survive well till the byes. I'd be looking to get Adams as soon as possible and either of Martin or Roo/Macrae.

Thanks Lazza, essentially you say get that trigger finger going! Okay, I don't need much encouragement.

2224 and 4th in coach kings
Very useful weekend cheers for the help again

BZZ

Hey community! We all sticking with heath shaw or are we trading him out!?

Rivo

Hold, he will come good.

Beezneez

He was sitting on about 68 points from memory in the second quarter and then sustained that ankle injury which put him off the ground for a fair while in the 3rd quarter and was obviously affected by it when he came back on. He may well not shake the injury in time for selection this week. I thought he was on track to ton it up before the injury..

Travo

I'm holding. Soon as I trade him he would pump out a 160.

This

Russty_

Round 5 and I'm ranked 3078, pretty cool, only 400 odd points behind the leader, easy to make up with a few good weeks πŸ™‚
Hopefully I can keep myself in the mix.

Gjlane123

Declan Montford out for Harley Balic ? Jock hinted at similiar ? Any chance Declan will play soon ? Same for Matt Hibbard?

Danners

A good trade, I would say Hibberd would have a better a playing than Hibberd down the track

Geoff

Thanks for the input mate will pull the trigger on !

Rivo

Roughy & O'Mera out for me. I've had enough.

27 trades & $86k. Time to paint the fence and get the Midfield upgraded. Which option is best?

Option 1: Rocky & Balic,
Option 2: Sloane & Balic,
Option 3: Bont & Balic.

Youngy

So many good options….

For mine Option 1

Rivo

Thanks Youngy. Rocky has the biggest ceiling, but the others are top 10 locks also. My only concern is injury history with Rocky, but he looks sharp this season.

Rivo

????

hedski

All good options Rivo

whatyasmokin

Who are you going to be able to get cheaper later, and who is priced well now? That is the question.

Soothsayer

I'm thinking the exact trade as number 2. Just not sure I need to pul the trigger now or save trades.

Rivo

It is a tough one. Roughy may only get to an 85 average, and O'Mera is a long way off. Team selections will confirm for me. I am not buying into the Yeo/Matera trades – midprice traps.

Iamme

Option 1 as Rocky plays on the same team as Mitch Robinson

Moustachio

I would be taking Hanners for cheap, instead of paying top dollar for those specimens.

Westy

Current team
D Laird, Simpson Tuohy, Marchbank 301, Otten 286, Newman 206, Hampton 242, Stewart 170
M Murphy, Dangerfield, Merrett, Kennedy, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, SPP 227, SPS 274, O'Meara 327, Barratt 170
R Nankervis, Grundy, Cameron 117
F Dahlhaus, Kennedy, WHE 325, Butler 239, Houston 273, Parfitt 206, Florent 196, Eddy 141

I've put a price on each of the cash cows/rookies. Ideally need about $700k for 2 trades, One up, one down. Currently short about $50k for that if trading WHE and JOM for Adams and Balic, so am thinking Balic for WHE or JOM at this stage to get about $200k in the kitty, then start to paint the fence when some of the others are ready to cash in when they get between $300-$350.

whatyasmokin

Yep makes sense, you probably need the cash gen. I'd ditch WHE seeing as JOM is in the guts. If JOM not named this week make sure you ditch him I reckon, rolling lockout wait till staurday morning to make the trade just in case JOM a late out.

marcusproudson

I'm sweating on JOM also.. how many trades have you used so far

Westy

Hey Marcus, if doing this one, that'll be 5 trades so far.

Danny

Is Higgins to yeo a good trade? Also buying a ruck and If I made this trade I would have to buy Brodie grundy instead of stef Martin.
Thoughts?

Youngy

NO. HOLD HIGGINS

Rivo

Don't think so Danny. Both similar players.
Yeo has a history of peaking and crashing. I would hold Higgins unless he is injured.

Steeeve

Play with fire…

whatyasmokin

You already made a mistake with Higgins……….why take another risk.

Grab Dahlhaus or McCrae.

Danners

You're trading one potential burnman with another, HOLD

Danny

ok i will hold then get mcrae next round

Rick

Yeo's SC season averages in his career: 58, 62, 65, 82, 75. Don't be seduced by his current 116 average.
