Is treloar a hold?

    EatChickenNuggets · 18/04/2017 at 16:35

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 16:47

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:34


    BIGBOY · 18/04/2017 at 19:28

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

      pete · 18/04/2017 at 23:31

      oi do i know you how was your easter bbq lol

    Rick · 18/04/2017 at 22:19

    Only upgrade premos when you've finished upgrading everyone else

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 22:40

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 09:34

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

    Scott · 20/04/2017 at 01:06

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

EatChickenNuggets · 18/04/2017 at 16:34

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 · 18/04/2017 at 16:50

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:15

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:43

      Danger fyfe + 3 more???

        Steeeve · 19/04/2017 at 08:09

        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 · 19/04/2017 at 08:35


Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 16:45

Cheers for the Podcast Lads

Steeeve · 18/04/2017 at 16:46

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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:03

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:03

      Sloane is a must have I think.

        whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:30

        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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:44

          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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:45

            Top coin*

            whatyousmokin · 19/04/2017 at 00:10

            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 · 19/04/2017 at 12:10

          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 · 19/04/2017 at 13:28

            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 · 18/04/2017 at 16:56

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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:28

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:04

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:02

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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:41

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

Camo · 18/04/2017 at 17:04

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

    Lach · 18/04/2017 at 18:37


NutSack · 18/04/2017 at 17:10

Happy Easter Higgo!!!! Did Cathy get to lift the Palm Leaf to reveal your Easter Eggs yet? Let me know please. I am waiting for you to nail the cross… I mean to nail where X marks the spot.

TheScacman · 18/04/2017 at 17:19

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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:20

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:14

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

    Super_Freak · 19/04/2017 at 22:48

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

    Dean · 20/04/2017 at 18:02

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:22

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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:26

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

    PJ King · 18/04/2017 at 18:23

    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_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:31

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      Kev · 19/04/2017 at 10:07

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

      The gall of that man!

    hedski · 19/04/2017 at 10:18

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

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:07

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

      Leeds17 · 19/04/2017 at 18:18

      Suggested had the game but wouldnt get the game time,

George · 18/04/2017 at 17:23

Is there any word on when David Myers will be back

    Joshua · 18/04/2017 at 18:55

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:00

      Cheers mate

        George · 18/04/2017 at 19:01

        Sorry Joshua messed that up haha

          Joshua · 18/04/2017 at 20:02

          All good Georgy boy

Danny · 18/04/2017 at 17:28

Should I hold Shaun Higgins for 1 more week

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 17:35

    Yes most defintely.

Krups · 18/04/2017 at 17:36

SPP down to Balic? SPP has BE of 45

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 17:43

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:56

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:37

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

    Ja191 · 18/04/2017 at 19:19

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

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 22:50

      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 · 18/04/2017 at 17:43

Brodie Grundy or Stefan Martin

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 17:46

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

    SF4 · 18/04/2017 at 23:29

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

    Bells E Bubb · 19/04/2017 at 07:48

    I reckon the pies plan this week to fix their crap forward line might involve cox playing a lot of ruck and grundy playing forward half the game.
    Just a theory.

    Super_Freak · 19/04/2017 at 22:51


Top · 18/04/2017 at 18:24

Will Higgins get tagged this week by Connor blakely?

    Top Gun · 18/04/2017 at 19:06

    No. You only tag good players. Lol

    Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:27

    Not if you trade him out this week lol

Tom · 18/04/2017 at 18:29

Thoughts on O'Meara to Matera via DPP?

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 18:33

    Trades like that will soon see you with no trades.

    If your going to trade him go up to a premo or down to a rookie (Balic is looking nice)

    Top Gun · 18/04/2017 at 19:06

    Matera is too inconsistent for mine.

    dwhits · 18/04/2017 at 19:10

    O'Meara to Balic maybe

    Rocksta · 18/04/2017 at 19:23

    Agree JOM needs to go, but definitely not for Matera.

    Double up on the trades and turn JOM into a Keeper.

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:18

    Why didn't people trade O'meara last week if they don't want him? What is the point of the 330K donut after a 44 if they are just going to trade him the following week.

    You will anger thy supercoach gods and you will feel their wrath.

      Loop · 19/04/2017 at 05:03

      Because Newman had to come in and we had to replace Gawn.

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:09

        That makes perfect sense, it's easy to forget such carnage when it didn't affect myself!

    Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:27

    Matera needs to prove himself before you'd even consider trading him in, if he averages 100 for the rest of this season, then consider trading him in next season.

    Bells E Bubb · 19/04/2017 at 07:51

    Now the shark move as the bandwagoneers won't be going there.
    Feeling lucky? Roll the dice.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:15

      lol no plenty have traded him in, all the people that just look at BE's and don't think about the future or wasted trades.

      The only risk that has come off so far is Smurph. last year was Waite and we all saw how that ended.

    Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:32

    Two wins, two big scores, coincidence? Has the early bye and few tough games before then, trade to a different player

hedski · 18/04/2017 at 18:37

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

    Soothsayer · 18/04/2017 at 22:55

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 23:14

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

        Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:22

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

    Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:25

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

    hedski · 19/04/2017 at 07:36

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 09:10

    Great trades.

Brad · 18/04/2017 at 18:40

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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:23

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

      whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:44

      Shooting themselves in the foot I reckon.

Tommo09 · 18/04/2017 at 18:43

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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:54


      Tommo09 · 18/04/2017 at 19:00

      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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:04

        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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:11

        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 ๐Ÿ™‚

        ( 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 · 18/04/2017 at 20:39

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

            Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:21

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

          TheLoneRanger · 18/04/2017 at 21:03

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

    Liam · 18/04/2017 at 19:02

    Pull the trigger on Roughy

      whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:20

      Agree Roughy to Dahlhaus is a good trade.

Liam · 18/04/2017 at 18:43

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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:20

    See my post below.

    Good trades!

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:05

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:41

      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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:08

        Yep fair enough.

        Rocksta · 19/04/2017 at 00:01

        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 · 19/04/2017 at 00:02

          Try again:
          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_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:18

            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 · 18/04/2017 at 18:51

Hibberd and Eddy OUT

Ballic and Williamson IN

Solid trade or not

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 18:53

    Solid trades.

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:03

    Hopefully Eddy gets named he has more cash to make.

Joshua · 18/04/2017 at 18:57

Barrett and eddy chances to be named in future surely.

    Youngy · 18/04/2017 at 19:07

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

    Eddy on the other hand is a worry.

      Swans2012 · 18/04/2017 at 22:38

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

        Chief · 18/04/2017 at 22:44

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

        Rocksta · 19/04/2017 at 00:36

        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 · 19/04/2017 at 00:42

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

          Swans2012 · 19/04/2017 at 11:58

          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…..

    Bells E Bubb · 19/04/2017 at 07:56

    Did you see the rookie article? Barrett had a game to make Ablet blush in the reserves. Will be back this week.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:20

      Not sure why they dropped him in the first place one of the only players to lay a lot tackles in their team that isn't Zorko or Rocky.

Jack · 18/04/2017 at 19:07

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

    Randomcliche · 18/04/2017 at 21:15

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:38

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:56

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

    Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:35

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

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:16

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:13

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

    DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 23:17

    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_ · 19/04/2017 at 03:07

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

Rocksta · 18/04/2017 at 19:13

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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:03

    Witts only has a breakeven of 10………

      Rocksta · 18/04/2017 at 23:55

      WHE to Roo then. Thoughts?

        Liam · 19/04/2017 at 00:45

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

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 00:49

        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 · 19/04/2017 at 17:17

    The fk kind of cash are you holding…

Lachy · 18/04/2017 at 19:24

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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:00

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

    Randomcliche · 18/04/2017 at 21:17

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

    Double Dragon · 18/04/2017 at 21:31

    Always a perennial injury risk so buyer beware.

      whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:33

      Played 21 games last season.

      Rocksta · 19/04/2017 at 00:09

      Mummy is always a gun……………..but always gets injured.
      It"s the old fashioned risk V reward. No right or wrong answer on this one!

    Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:37

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:25

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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:29

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 · 18/04/2017 at 19:30

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

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:28

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:38

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

        whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:23

        Who reckons? Highly doubtful.

          Finnius · 18/04/2017 at 22:25

          Supercoach gold projections

            whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:42

            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.

Crows · 18/04/2017 at 19:58

Lance Franklin for Taylor Walker

And Dyson Heppell For Rory Sloane

what's your thoughts community

    Joshua · 18/04/2017 at 20:04

    Second option, decent.
    First, not so much in my opinion.
    You'll be crying if Franklin hits the scoreboard big in the next few weeks after the GWS game wherein he faces fairly easy competition.

      Joshua · 18/04/2017 at 20:43

      Also I'd probably hold Heppell. He's been pretty good other than this week where most of the bomber boys suffered to be fair.

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 20:58

    Ridiculous trades.

    Finnius123 · 18/04/2017 at 21:36

    Not a fan

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 23:12

      Fark me mate if I had them players and I don't btw I would still be happy to hold them golden trades.

      Seems like your team has no issues with suspension, injuries and non playing rookies just a case of spoilt for luck and feel like your missing out on doing trades like others who actually need to fix their teams

        whatyousmokin · 19/04/2017 at 00:02

        I'll bet they just have their priorities wrong. Bench is probably covered in stains

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:19

    #2 yes (non premo to premo)
    #1 massive waste (premo to non premo)

iLoveNMFC · 18/04/2017 at 20:02

Thoughts community? 220k in the bank.

O'Meara to Murphy
Pickett to Balic
Roughy to Riewoldt

Murphy worth the extra trade? Cheers

    Ja191 · 18/04/2017 at 20:10

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:12

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 23:59

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

        whatyousmokin · 19/04/2017 at 00:01

        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_ · 19/04/2017 at 02:55

        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_ · 19/04/2017 at 02:56

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 09:13

        Yes I can ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dryyak · 18/04/2017 at 20:03

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

    krups · 18/04/2017 at 20:47

    I am thinking that myself

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:10

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

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 23:07

      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 · 18/04/2017 at 23:08

        That's why I am culling Hickey and not Steel

    SF4 · 18/04/2017 at 23:38

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 20:26

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

    SF4 · 18/04/2017 at 23:39

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 09:41

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 10:03

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 10:03

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

      Jono · 19/04/2017 at 12:57

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

Jordan · 18/04/2017 at 20:28

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 · 18/04/2017 at 20:52

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 20:59

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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:10

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:06

Roughy to Lynch thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 21:07

    Nope, grab Lynch after his round 9 bye instead.

    Finnius123 · 18/04/2017 at 21:34

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

    Russty_ · 19/04/2017 at 02:51

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

Howard Mitchell · 18/04/2017 at 21:13

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

    Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 00:30


    A lack of resources.


      Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 00:33

Alex · 18/04/2017 at 21:16

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

    Steeeve · 18/04/2017 at 21:52

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

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 23:05

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

        Steeeve · 19/04/2017 at 12:11

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

Howard Mitchell · 18/04/2017 at 21:19

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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:32


    Finnius123 · 18/04/2017 at 21:33

    What's wrong with him?

    Randomcliche2 · 18/04/2017 at 21:40

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:55

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

    Swans2012 · 18/04/2017 at 22:14

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

    Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 00:26

    He will be a winner.

      Rocksta · 19/04/2017 at 00:29

      How do you know?

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 00:41

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

        Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 00:59

        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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:39

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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:28

    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 · 18/04/2017 at 22:37

      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 · 18/04/2017 at 21:57

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

    whatyasmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:03

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

    Finnius123 · 18/04/2017 at 22:27

    Don't bother

    Cr0magn0n · 19/04/2017 at 02:14

    Yeah you've missed that boat.

Oliver · 18/04/2017 at 22:15

Great podcast as usual!

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


    whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 22:48

    That you Clayton? Keep up the good work!

    How much dosh you got?

      DavidSA · 18/04/2017 at 23:03

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

      Oliver · 19/04/2017 at 18:48

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

      trading out murphy for otten in

    whatyousmokin · 18/04/2017 at 23:57

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

Randomcliche2 · 18/04/2017 at 23:30

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 · 19/04/2017 at 00:21

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 00:39

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 12:06

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

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:23

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

Lazza · 18/04/2017 at 23:48

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.

    Randomcliche2 · 19/04/2017 at 12:10

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

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

    Rivo · 19/04/2017 at 07:04

    Hold, he will come good.

    Beezneez · 19/04/2017 at 12:02

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 12:09

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

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:22

    Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:39

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

      Geoff · 19/04/2017 at 11:50

      Thanks for the input mate will pull the trigger on !

Rivo · 19/04/2017 at 06:57

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 · 19/04/2017 at 08:16

    So many good options….

    For mine Option 1

      Rivo · 19/04/2017 at 08:26

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 08:19


    hedski · 19/04/2017 at 08:38

    All good options Rivo

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:07

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

    Soothsayer · 19/04/2017 at 10:11

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

      Rivo · 19/04/2017 at 11:57

      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 · 19/04/2017 at 10:24

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

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:27

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

Westy · 19/04/2017 at 07:13

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 · 19/04/2017 at 09:06

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 19:00

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

      Westy · 20/04/2017 at 15:02

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

Danny · 19/04/2017 at 07:25

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.

    Youngy · 19/04/2017 at 08:16


    Rivo · 19/04/2017 at 08:18

    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 · 19/04/2017 at 08:40

    Play with fire…

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:02

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

    Grab Dahlhaus or McCrae.

    Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:29

    You're trading one potential burnman with another, HOLD

      Danny · 19/04/2017 at 10:07

      ok i will hold then get mcrae next round

    Rick · 19/04/2017 at 15:25

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

Joshua · 19/04/2017 at 08:08

North defender Sam wright out for 8 weeks. Rookie defender in?

    hedski · 19/04/2017 at 08:39

    EVW maybe?

    Double Dragon · 19/04/2017 at 09:00

    That'll be right, in comes Hibbo after we all traded his bludging butt out last week.

      Loop · 19/04/2017 at 10:41

      Maybe not. It said in the rookie report that he came off the ground on a stretcher after a head clash.

      Steeeve · 19/04/2017 at 12:12

      Surely EVW gets a crack before Hibbo. Plus Hibbo got knocked out last week.

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2017 at 10:20


    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:30

    Has to be EVW. Perfect timing to downgrade Hampton or Stewart hopefully.

Sam · 19/04/2017 at 08:55

This week TT to Balic adding to the 100K I have in cash already.

Next week, Mills and Marchbank shipped out for fallen premos…any 2 of Simpson, Shaw and Boyd

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:00

    Big question is will those guys be top defenders this season.

      Sam · 19/04/2017 at 09:35

      That's where I need to back myself in picking 2 of them. I wouldn't expect a complete top 8 change this year, but who will fall away….anyone's guess

Bill · 19/04/2017 at 09:01

Forwards under $530,000

    Ja191 · 19/04/2017 at 09:17

    All are under $530,000 with the exception of nroo, i'd go macrae if you dont have him

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:17


    smith · 19/04/2017 at 09:31

    taylor walker because now that josh Jenkins and Mitch McGovern are out taylor walker will have to play better

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 10:01

      Good POD.

      Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:31

      Good POS

Alec · 19/04/2017 at 09:15

Thinking trading out roughie and bringing in motlop as a POD… cost $466k owned by only 1%. Low score of 83 and high score of 123 and average of 94.25

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:17

    He's ok, good thing is Geelong are in for a good season, that helps. You'll not be happy when he gets a 40 but hey.

whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:23

Fielding two defenders out of………

Marchbank (74) Newman (80) and McGrath (97)

Which two and why?

    Travo · 19/04/2017 at 12:10

    Tough one. I'd be more confident in Newman and March.

whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 09:24

Marchbank vs port at AO

Newman vs GWS at SCG

McGrath vs Collingwood at MCG

    tophawk · 19/04/2017 at 09:42

    Tough question mate!!

    I personally would go Marchbank and Newman. Here are a couple of reasons why.

    1- Marchbank and Newman have an overall round average which is higher than Mc Grath. (77.25 and 86.0 respectively) McGrath 74.5

    2- The footy is likely to spend more time in Carlton's and Sydney's backline due to the opponents they are playing. GWS very attacking side and Carlton on Port's home deck.

    Nonetheless, tough call that. Good luck.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 10:00

      Whenever I chase rookie points it seems to fail, (SPS and Parfitt after they tonned up)

      So even though McGrath scored and looked good last week, would be wise to go Marchbank and Newman, you are more than likely right tophawk.

      Dutch · 19/04/2017 at 10:01

      Agree, out of those three I would bench McGrath as has been the least consistent – but a tough call that could go any way

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:51


    Brian · 19/04/2017 at 10:00

    Leave out McGrath. I don't like rookies in a big game like Anzac day

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:51

      Yep true.

    Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 14:50

    Nice problem to have Mate.

    I would probably lean towards Marchbank onfield.
    Has been very consistent apart from the game they played in a deluge.

    You know how this works though … whoever you bench will have a blinder and have you muttering "at least they're making money " for a week.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:33

      I know right. I really liked the look of McGrath in the game against the crows. First time I'd seen him play and surprised he was pumping out crap scores before that.

Danners · 19/04/2017 at 09:28

Great work Jock and the boys! I was really surprised to hear talk of you guys trading out Titch. Did you guys have a few too many rum cans or something? He's averaging 105, scored 3 100s and hasn't dropped below 80 yet in a side that hasn't won a game yet.

Kev · 19/04/2017 at 10:04

Don't trade out Buddy

whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 10:06

Chasing points. Awful trades.

Brian · 19/04/2017 at 10:15

When you started with buddy you should have known he would have bad weeks. Hold

    Loop · 19/04/2017 at 10:49

    You started with Burton when he didnt play in round 1????

      Crows A Team · 19/04/2017 at 10:56

      yes i had him on the bench in round 1 but he was going to make money so i got him anyway

        Call Me Sceptical · 19/04/2017 at 11:43

        Busted dude. We can see that you created this side after Rd2 so little point bragging about your team value and 29 trades. So you didn't have Burton on your bench in Rd1 because the team didn't even exist at that point. Nice try but we didn't come down in the last shower!

          Crows A Team · 19/04/2017 at 18:28

          Get stuffed d1ckhead! Jealousy will get you nowhere.

      Call Me Sceptical · 19/04/2017 at 12:00

      Yeah I smelt BS straight away Loop ha ha. As if he really needs the community's help the rorter that he is. By posting his team value which he knows is way more than even the best teams out there he is just trying to impress. Just a time waster for mine and a bald faced lyer too claiming he started Burton Rd1.

    Call Me Sceptical · 19/04/2017 at 11:28

    What's your team name bud? Definitely smells like a side created after a round or 2 with the vast number of early season bolters in there. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Call Me Sceptical · 19/04/2017 at 11:35

      As I suspected this side was created after round two so has only taken to the field in Rd3 and 4.

      Don't need to be a genius to pick all those guys two rounds in. Unfortunately about 4000pts off the pace ranked 169K so is only a league relevant side as as good a side as it is but it's not making up 4000pts.

      No doubt created to try and claim the Rd3 prize money which the HS shouldn't allow in my opinion. Bit of a rort if you ask me.

        Brett · 19/04/2017 at 11:51

        Yeah no doubt this guy Blake (if that's even his real name) has alternate sides. It makes you wonder how many of the 200,000 teams are actual legit or just one of multiple teams controlled by the same coach in an effort to try and exploit the prize money loopholes. Like that guy at the top of the rankings last year who got found out for operating multiple steams.

          Brett · 19/04/2017 at 11:53


        Jason · 19/04/2017 at 13:01

        Indeed it annoys me that the Herald Sun allows this to happen. I reckon if you don't start a team before the opening round concludes that you should be ineligible to win any money. Sure you can still compete and have fun if you were late to the season for some reason but no prize money which would nip a lot of these bogus sides in the bud. I believe the team that won the round 3 money did the exact same thing and created the "ultimate" side right before the price changes which is just a sh1tc**t move in my mind. The thing that makes it even worse is that this is probably not the coach's primary side. Their "real" side probably has a selection of premo spuds like Shaw, Simpson, Treloar, Hanners, Crouch, Caddy that the rest of us have been suffering through.

          Call Me Sceptical · 19/04/2017 at 13:11

          Haha yep it's amazing how he dodged all those premo spuds as you call them. At least he was foolish enough to post his side here to try and gloat so someone will no doubt dob in his cheating ass should he win a round. I bet they can do IP checks to see if they match the logins for other teams if the same person is operating several teams from the same location. There will also be a bunch of whole new tools who show up for the round 11 prize money with miraculously no round 11 bye players in it like Dahl and Beams that we all have, in a cynical attempt to try and pocket some easy cash. Makes a mockery of the competition if you ask me.

            whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:34

            Funny thing is, they only have 10 keepers, vs my 12.

            And the team and value together is only 250K more than mine. Sure they have more trades but considering they cheated it's pathetic.

              Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 14:12

              Pretty UnAustralian way to go about it …

              Don't think he can win though as he has missed the boat on Pickett.

            Jason · 19/04/2017 at 16:36

            The problem is if everyone did it then we would have 500,000 teams with all these fake sides clogging up our public leagues. You know the ones I'm talking about, the ghost sides that have been abandoned by their owners long ago that you see down the bottom of the ladder late in the season with 8 week old VCs and Cs. They ditch all the sides that have no chance to focus their energies on their better teams. Not a problem you might think only that when the top positions on the ladder are often separated by a small percentage late in the season then huge wins against these ghost sides can really boost the lucky opponent's percentage that can sometimes decide who makes finals or top 4s etc.

        Crows A Team · 19/04/2017 at 18:30

        Well done Detective D1ckhead. Some people really have no life. All they want to do is bring others down. Your parents must be so proud.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:50

      Thanks pal. I glad someone appreciates my work. So many haters. It's just a game people. If you don't want to help just move on.

Iamme · 19/04/2017 at 10:18

Will the Bont get the Mitch Robinson tag this week?….after the job he did on Dusty last week I'd be concerned.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 10:26

    Probably yes.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 10:46

    That's a good point. But he may also go to Dahlhaus who is more his weight division. Bont is a big bugger

      Don't Blush Baby · 19/04/2017 at 11:44

      Note that whilst Robbo ran with Dusty ,Beams was picking him up at the stoppages, but agree Dahlhaus might be the target. I'll be wanting to VC Bont at this stage ?

      Steeeve · 19/04/2017 at 12:13

      Yeah not like that little weed Dusty

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:49

        Yep a whole 5cm taller than Dusty haha

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:36

    Bont is hard to tag, doesn't need many possies to impact game and can rotate fwd at will. Plus taller than most mids.

Ryan · 19/04/2017 at 10:18

Who to trade for Balic? SPP or Taranto? Or don't?

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 10:26

    Whoever gets dropped out of the two, or Taranto I think.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 10:44

    Taranto if necessary. But I think he still has a bit more to make. SPP has an easier run of games coming up. Hold him for the time being

Ben · 19/04/2017 at 10:19

Dont trade premos

Boltons Blues · 19/04/2017 at 10:24

Taranto and Roughy to Sloane and Balic, thoughts?
Other notable bench/trade options are Eddy/Pickett/Stewart/Hibbered/SPP/Hampton

    Kev · 19/04/2017 at 14:23

    Do it

Rooster XXX · 19/04/2017 at 10:33

Why would you even be considering trading Buddy Franklin?? Who's to say for the rest of the season he isn't going to score/average more than Roo or Dahl???

Timmy · 19/04/2017 at 10:34

Should we be bringing in Ballic this week? Possible trade out players include:
Pickett, Barratt, SPP, JOM, Hannan, Eddy
Got 26 trades left. Should i do this or hold?

    Jef · 19/04/2017 at 10:37

    In same position w trades and I have done it

    Brian · 19/04/2017 at 11:10

    the big concern with Ballic is that Ross has got a sniff of finals so he is one bad game away from being dropped. Also the cows haven't fully fattened so I think im gonna wait

Premiership Player · 19/04/2017 at 11:47

Should I hold Lance Franklin, Scott Pendlebury and Dyson Heppell or should i trade two of them?


    Imgonnalose · 19/04/2017 at 11:50

    Definitely trade out Pendles. Maybe bring in Cripps?

      Premiership Player · 19/04/2017 at 11:57


      Would it be worth trading Scott Pendlebury for Rory Sloane

    Steeeve · 19/04/2017 at 12:14

    Trade Pendles for sure mate one game in the 90s means he is an absolute spud.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:47

    Thanks for the laughs.

      DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 15:37

      bloody hell I think he is on to something we don't see

    @t_woof · 19/04/2017 at 15:58

    Stop wasting peoples time!!

Jimboss · 19/04/2017 at 12:09

Thinking of bringing in Fiorini, high start at 279k but can really get the pill and score, and should easily out preform most available rooks….

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:21

    Wouldn't touch him with a barge pole.

Swannie · 19/04/2017 at 12:11

Reluctantly traded Hall up to Rockcliffe, Downgraded Houston to Bali…Keeping Tarantoโ€‹ at this stage as played well against the Swans…. Thoughts

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:46

    Houston has a BE of 1, so I don't get it.

Bevo · 19/04/2017 at 12:18

Don't worry about the why, I'm moving on one of Higgins or Steele in the fwds. Torn between keeping the young guy who has improvement/upside but has struggled to show it and may not go further this year, compared to the older who has experience and no doubt will have a reasonable average over the duration but is well capable of providing some infuriating returns with some injury risk. Noting higgins avg is about 93 and Steele 89 so very little between them. Higgins would add another 70k to the bank. Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:45

    Like you'd be silly enough to move on Steele who has a 46 BE, and who scored 88 and 93 last two games. His 65 will be out of his value next week too……….

      Bevo · 19/04/2017 at 14:04

      Never underestimate stupidity or those who practice it. I probably could have added they are both the two worst performing fwds i have (f5 and f6) so although 90ish isn't bad, I'll move one on for someone scoring over 100. Yes steele has more appeal from the money side. I've avoided Higgins burn previously so this year was simply my year and was considering him as a keeper but last two scores and seeing him play along with how nm are faring i don't think he's going to be all that… but the original keeper thought had me looking at steele as the option to move on. He's had opportunity through the injuries at the saints and sure 80 or 90 isn't bad but he's potentially costing me a few points every week and although he'll make cash i was more hoping for a breakout 100 avg year from him than a cash man. I was leaning more towards ditching Higgins for the obvious reasons but always interesting to see if anyone makes a case i haven't thought of the other way!

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:45

    Higgins has a 130 BE and two average scores, Steele will probably be worth more than him within a few weeks.

      DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 13:25

      Or you could leave them both alone
      Not like you have Wingard and Roughead combo.

      Agree with smokin here Steele is basically averaging 90 and still has cash to make so atm having Steele is a win win situation he can either reach keeper F6 status or increase another 75k over the next month

Alex · 19/04/2017 at 12:20

Jack Steele priced at 387k, I'm jumping on, ride the wave to 450k and then jump on a fallen gem. Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 12:43

    A trade is worth way more than 63K, total waste. Unless of course you think he can be an F6 keeper, which is possible and I think he can reach more around 500K.

      Think you mean swirl

        whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:38

        Ride the whitewash……..

    Bevo · 19/04/2017 at 14:11

    Probably better to consider matera at this point. A chance he'll keep doing what he's doing, is cheaper and will generate more cash and seems to have a higher ceiling at this point. Plays his third game this weekend too.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:20

      Steele more likely to be a keeper though at this point. Both too awkwardly priced to trade in. Steele is good if you started with him, that's about it.

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:38

    Previous poster wants to get rid of Steele, you can't both be right.

Captain Risky · 19/04/2017 at 12:22

Left Field option. Anyone looking at Brayden Fiorini -GC ??

Only played 4 games, 2 last year -rounds 22/23 and scored 46 & 125. ( That was enough to stuff up his rookie price!) and rounds 3& 4 this year. 75 & 97. Break even -9, priced at awkward 279K, on the bubble this week, + 40K approx. Seems to be able to find the ball, was a great scorer at Junior/ NEAFL levels…
An expensive rookie but given the lack of options… Thoughts?

    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 13:18

    Too expensive and would be lucky to make you 100k

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:20

    Not for me but probably as good as the Matera option, problem is JS and consistency.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 14:14

    At 100k less I'd entertain it. But not at that price

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:19

      Yeah up to 250K I'd give it a thought, probably still wouldn't honestly.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 13:18

    Looking pretty good, I'd wait for team selections I reckon there will be someone to cull possibly SPP/Florent/Taranto.

    Could paint the fence with two of them out, Balic + Premo keeper.

Big G · 19/04/2017 at 13:11

I am making a corrective trade this week for one of my rookie bench options. Who do you guys think will be less likely to get a game for the rest of the year. Hibberd, Mountford or Eddy?

    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 13:53


DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 14:04

A lot saying that SPP is cooked or ready to cull this week. I will be holding him for atleast 2 more weeks, my thinking is this…. Adelaide fasted side in the comp GWS pretty much 2nd fasted side in comp. Port struggled against both these teams for contested ball and got murderd on the outside.

I am using Barret as loop for SPP in case he scores – 60 but I would not be surprised if he goes 75 + against the blues at home in which case will leave Barret on field (hope Barret is not named this week). I firmly believe over the next couple of weeks he can avg 70-75 and with the 41 leaving his calculation will bump up in price again.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 14:22

    Agree with you David. I have no intention of getting rid of SPP yet. They have faced the most in form team over the last 2. Get's easier from here. He won't lose money

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:37

    Valid points on SPP, not sure I have the patience and my overflowing bank account just needs to be spent.

    Hopefully team selections make these trades easier.

Matt · 19/04/2017 at 14:05

What promo should I take for Shaw?

    Matt · 19/04/2017 at 14:07


    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 14:07

    none mate
    But if you do all 3 of these guys have been very consistent and sub 500k
    Lloyd, Howe and JJ

      Matt · 19/04/2017 at 16:23

      Thanks for advice, I think I'll keep him in.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 14:14

    Heath Shaw

      DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 14:16

      Exactly Pieman

      Jason · 19/04/2017 at 18:00

      Does that cost two trades? Trade him with your first trade. And then later in the week trade him back with your second trade. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @t_woof · 19/04/2017 at 16:02

    Don't be silly.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:18

    This one time I'd suggest a sideways trade. Shaw for Shaw all the way.

    FCAbel · 19/04/2017 at 17:05

    Not many better, even out of form

Ranked1 · 19/04/2017 at 14:15

I have figured out the best way to play this game is with emotion, therefore trade out who upset me the most to a big scorer. This week danger to Rocky and pendles to Sloane. I can smell 50k.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 15:03

    Playing with emotion is how you run out of trades fast. And that's your aim then your on the right track with those moves

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:17


    Jake · 19/04/2017 at 16:29

    Hehe nice trolling buddy. Looks like you sucked in a few.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:30

      lol nah mate.

Juzzy · 19/04/2017 at 14:32

Surely you are fishing ??

Buddy down to Pickett to free up cash.
Heppell to Myers to keep your bye structure.

Jimmy · 19/04/2017 at 14:35

What does everyone think of Brandon Matera; i think too much to take a punt on but he is looking good?

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 15:00

    If you think he can make you 150-200k go for it. But one bad score like he has a 7 year history of & it's a fail

      Jimmy · 19/04/2017 at 17:31

      I completely agree but I've missed the boat with Murphy, Oliver and Newman so I'm feeling left behind. With that said though I'm still considering Newman for Roughy

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:17

    Looking good in 2 games……………

Dylan · 19/04/2017 at 14:57

With $400k in the bank, is it worth upgrading SPP to Bont to go Marchbank to an Adams/Docherty?

    Dylan · 19/04/2017 at 14:57


      DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 15:24

      Both Rookies you put up have cash to make still
      all depends on how many premo players you got currently if you only got 14 or less it won't hurt to upgrade one but I would implor you to let cows fatten little more and pick up a discount premo

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:29

    Who else do you have on your bench?

    If SPP is rested then pull the trigger on that trade.

    Not sure Marchbank is done myself. I'd cull WHE before him.

    FCAbel · 19/04/2017 at 17:10

    Def SPP to bont of those options. I'd look at another rookie upgrade if possible.

      Dylan · 20/04/2017 at 16:02

      Stewart and Smith on defence bench
      Barrett, Parfitt and Hibberd on midfield bench
      Pickett and Eddy on forward bench

      Got Marchbank, Otten, Hampton, SPP, Houston, Butler and WHE on field

INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 15:05

His DPP is handy. When he comes back someone needs to tell him he's playing in the finals where his Av is great

    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 15:13

    he will go to another level when he stops being scared to take a contested mark

      INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 15:46

      Coming off a shoulder reco. It clearly seems to be impacting him. Had pretty much no preseason. Only started training a week before the JLT

TRIGGER HAPPY · 19/04/2017 at 15:16

Nice pod fellas.
Anus Horribulus.
Yep that about sums up Rd 4.

Pod on …..

Jordan · 19/04/2017 at 15:54

Is this. Waste of trades?

Marchbank to Williamson
Turner to matera as I think matera will gain 150k+ and will also leave me with 110k

    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 16:01

    make team with stepping stone = 1 trade
    Trade in a stepping stone = 2 trades
    Trade Matera only if you think he can be a top 8 fwd (highly unlikely)

      Jordan · 19/04/2017 at 16:12

      Aren't rookies basically stepping stones? We trade them in for cash generation then trade them for a premium I'm doing the same with matera with the slight chance of him becoming a keeper

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:13

    The typical point chasers will all get on him. Look what happened to Swallow, not saying it will be exactly like that but things change fast.

    History shows trades like that almost never pay off.

TyS · 19/04/2017 at 15:55

Anyone eying off a sandi to spencer trade next week

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:11

    With a projected score of only 84 and a projected BE of 62, nope.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:26

    Sandi projection*

    Tiger · 19/04/2017 at 16:48

    On my radar or wits.

      DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 17:18

      in 2-3 weeks I'm looking at Sandi out swing Nank in trade Sandi to Franklin and trade Houston to T.Boyd who I hope falls close to 200k

      Tiger · 19/04/2017 at 17:30

      Ps. Not this week , maybe next

    Jason · 19/04/2017 at 18:01

    If he spanks out a massive ton and either Sandi or Witts spud it up then it will at least be a consideration. You'd be crazy not to at least look at it given our cash generation problems this season.

Justin · 19/04/2017 at 16:10

marchbank to Williamson !? I know it is a bit risky but I feel like marchbank will have a low score this week and will struggle with future cash generation I've been taking risks so far and it has be in 87th spot what does everyone reckon

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2017 at 16:24

    If you're 87th I'd be going with your gut and not asking us on here. I'm surprised more aren't interested in bringing in Williamson.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:25

    Depends who you can have on field instead. If you have a McGrath quality rookie to bring on field then I'd entertain it.

    If it's Hampton or Tom Stewart then forget about it you'll lose a lot of points and Williamson ain't no must have by the looks.

    Boltons Blues · 19/04/2017 at 17:40

    dont do it, my blues are playing Port this weekend, the ball will live in our D 50

    Moustachio · 19/04/2017 at 17:42

    I reckon a spot just opened up for me in the top 100, thanks for keeping it warm.

whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:16

Could be attractive to drop Sandi to Boyd after round 11. Most will jump on a premo though I'm thinking Martin will work out sweet with round 11 bye also.

Sideshowbob · 19/04/2017 at 16:18

Steele to Matera?

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:22

    Sideways move or a shiteways move?

    Brian · 19/04/2017 at 16:57

    Steele has played 3 of his 4 games at Etihad and his lowest score there is 88. St kilda play most of their games there.
    Unlike most I can entertain the idea of matera, but not for Steele

whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:21

I had higgins a couple of years ago for 240K, was serviceable but still missed some games. Would never pay 420K+ for him.

red5 · 19/04/2017 at 16:34

O'meara BE 58 to Andrew McGrath ($278,100 & BE 4)
Hibberd to Tom Williamson (BE-53)

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 16:35

    Hibberd>Williamson – check.

    O'meara trade? No way.

Snake · 19/04/2017 at 16:41

Hey Community

should I cut roughie and downgrade SPP to bring in a mid premo max 602k or hold?

It would mean having 3 fwd rookies on field.
Currently have 2 mid premos and jaeger on field tho and need to rise in rankings

    Harley · 19/04/2017 at 17:38

    You only have 2 mid premos and JOM? so your fielding 5 rookies?

      Snake · 20/04/2017 at 16:02

      sorry i meant 2 rookies

andrew · 19/04/2017 at 16:41

is hampton to newman a good trade

    Big G · 19/04/2017 at 17:04


    Youngy · 19/04/2017 at 17:14

    A non playing rookie to newman would be worth it.

    Saundo · 19/04/2017 at 17:57

    Missed the boat on Newman me think

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:47

    Missed an 80K+ price rise. Accept it and move on I reckon.

    Plus for all you know Hampton scores 80+ this week and starts making good cash and Newman gets a 40.

    Kev · 21/04/2017 at 10:18

    Only if you have a donut fetish

jez_m · 19/04/2017 at 16:58

What are everyone's thoughts on trading out Jack Steele this week? I'm trading Taranto for Balic which has opened up $137K to play with, which could allow me to move Steele on for a forward line premium. His scoring has been okay for a mid-pricer, but I figure players like Nankervis (who I haven't got), Greene and Buddy will most likely score better from here on in and end up as top 10 forwards. Should I save the trade for later on, or take the opportunity to bring another premo into my side? Already have Dahlhaus, Macrae and Lynch as my forward premiums with Steele at F4.

    FCAbel · 19/04/2017 at 17:13

    I think Steele goes well and few fwds are better currently, so no.

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 17:32

    Playing at Etihad with a BE of 46. He's Av almost double that at that venue. Absolutely no way. He's still got money to make

    jez_m · 19/04/2017 at 18:19

    Cheers guys, nothing like other people's feedback to get you back on the straight and narrow!

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:46

    Steele is the last mid price player to be trading out at this point.

wighty · 19/04/2017 at 17:21

Matera…best case is m6/7/8…..worst case is a quick 150k. Thoughts ??

    Kev · 19/04/2017 at 17:56

    Chasing points, wighty. He has no history of these types of scores and GC will get reamed by Adelaide this week. Hold

Roberto · 19/04/2017 at 17:32

Was wondering what the better option is.
1: Trade Bolton>Balic (Leaves me with 243k but better cash generation)
2:Trade Taranto>Balic.(Leaves me with 377k but less cash generation)

I'm leaning to option 2 so that next week I have a big bank to upgrade Hampton or even Swallow to an ultra premo.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:45

    Over the coming weeks Richmond have a lot of late round games, Bolton could be a great loophole.

    If Taranto is dropped could make your decision easier I guess.

ChasingFinals17 · 19/04/2017 at 17:35

What do I do with Jobe Watson and Michael Barlow do I hold or do I shove them overboard, loosing lots of cash

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:43

    Who knows might have to hold and wait for them to come good. Or paint the fence get Balic and a real premo.

    Holding them you are going to lose a lot of cash.

      ChasingFinals17 · 19/04/2017 at 19:30

      After posting the first comment I logged no on to SuperCoach and did two trades trading out Barlow and Jobe for Balic and Rockliff. Should I have traded in a different premo or is Rockliff the best option?

Grant · 19/04/2017 at 17:52

Heath shaw + Harley balic traded in for

WHE & Brett eddy.


    SF4 · 19/04/2017 at 17:55

    To early to trade out WHE. BE of 49.

    Jason · 19/04/2017 at 18:03

    HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDD on Heater. Eddy to Balic is fine assuming Eddy again misses.

    SCathiest · 19/04/2017 at 18:23

    You're locking in a $77,100 loss by trading Shaw.

      whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:41

      Shaw's BE is 124 it's attainable.

        David · 19/04/2017 at 19:01

        Not if he doesn't play. Would be the perfect time to move him on rather than subject yourself to a nasty Stewart bench score.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:41

    Sounds ok, could wait a week on the WHE to Shaw trade.

Andy · 19/04/2017 at 17:56

Merrett or Heppell for 70k cheaper?

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:40

    Merrett all the way.

    SF4 · 19/04/2017 at 18:52

    Merrett for sure

marcusproudson · 19/04/2017 at 18:01

Do we think balic is a must trade in this week.? Thinking of trading him in for Brett Eddy. Considered trading out JOM depending if he is selected this week for cash also

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:39

    If O'meara not named you could just trade Balic in and keep Eddy.

      marcusproudson · 19/04/2017 at 18:51

      Mmmm thinking that.. I hope he comes good but if he misses this week I think I'll have to move him on

MinimumChips · 19/04/2017 at 18:16

Do I trade roughy to Kennedy and JOM to slone ranger? thoughts??

    marcusproudson · 19/04/2017 at 18:53

    If you can move roughy on for an upgrade I would. Sloane for JOM is nice also. Obv got some cash left over .?

    TheScacman · 19/04/2017 at 18:57

    Kennedy is up and down, I'd jump on Dalhaus or Macrae if you dont have them already. Kennedy will score big in wins but has a very low floor. Nank or Franklin are other option, wont see Buddy below 500K again (does have a BE of 138 this week though). Sloane is a good trade into the middle though, back him to ton up most weeks

    hedski · 19/04/2017 at 19:09

    If you have the kang for that do it.

    MinimumChips · 19/04/2017 at 19:23

    I've got

    the doc thouy hampton march McGrath Newman (Stewart/Hibbard)

    Dusty, Murphy, fyfe, trelor, heppell, viney, swallow, spp (jom/tranto/Bowes)

    Sandi, Witt's, Cameron

    Dalhous, nank, petraca, roughy, fantasia, whe, (eddy,pickett)

      hedski · 19/04/2017 at 19:51

      Bit of mid price madness there, gonna have to trade hard for premo but OK cash gen?

Paul · 19/04/2017 at 18:25

Is Balic a must have? I'm not convinced. Think I'll cool my jets this week and snap up Fisher next week.

    whatyasmokin · 19/04/2017 at 18:39

    Thinking the same

    INPieman · 19/04/2017 at 18:48

    I don't think he's a must have. I'll also be having another look at Fisher. If Parsons was available this week I'd get him over Balic

    marcusproudson · 19/04/2017 at 18:52

    I'm asking myself the same thing. JOM scares me too I hope he's back this week

    Crows A Team · 19/04/2017 at 19:03

    I think the kid is a serious talent and has a pretty decent role. Was just nervous in his first game but I'm expecting a 70+ against the Roos so he comes in for me for Hibbo or Eddy this week.

      Brett · 19/04/2017 at 19:17

      I thought you didn't have Eddy or Hibberd in the team you posted above. Or is this your main side you are talking about this time? You really should give it a rest already.

    Pete · 19/04/2017 at 19:53

    The Doctor Supercoach guys who I respect a lot believe he is an excellent trade in this week.

      whoyasuckin · 19/04/2017 at 20:26

      Doctor Who?? LOL!

    Top Gun · 19/04/2017 at 20:08

    Why not get both?

      Hank · 19/04/2017 at 20:24

      Absolutely! Good rookies are few and far between this season so you need to snap up the better ones when they present or fall behind in the cash accumulation race.

TheScacman · 19/04/2017 at 19:05

If Swallow not named, is it too early to trade out him and roughead and bring in Balic and Bont/Rocky? Swallow has one good price rise after that spud effort this weekend, plus the round 9 bye. Looking at Bont and Rocky because im stuffed for the round 13 bye with 6 premiums out which rules out sloane. Roughead not to generate anymore cash, balic will make a few.


    Watta Whaynekerr · 19/04/2017 at 20:03

    give up on Rd 13. Get the points and keepers in Scatman. Any mid you want. forget the bye issue.

And i also went roughy to Macrae…. with only 30k left in bank
Thanks community

    DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 21:26

    Done what you needed to do now you can savour the 2nd trade this week

DavidSA · 19/04/2017 at 21:25

well Tom Boyd I'm watching your next game like a hawk. DPP player priced currently at 278k if he drops to 220k or less over the next couple of weeks I'm bringing him in. Houston > Boyd bank 120k I hope

    Top Gun · 19/04/2017 at 22:15

    Is that worth it seeing Boyd won't be a keeper? Should be letting cows go moo then trading up.

      Big Babba · 19/04/2017 at 23:21

      Yeah the reason he's dropping that low is basically coz he's a sh*t pick. Avoid him like the ebola virus!

Cpt Pugwash · 19/04/2017 at 22:49

Help Community! I find myself in strange territory.

Rank 281

My premo concern is Ablett BE 128 & Low Avg.

Should I bring in M.Murphy? Or Suggest Alternative.

Should I trade now for points or trade for cash?


    Moustachio · 20/04/2017 at 08:31

    Ablett looks like he's playing himself back I to form. But you have some trades to burn. I would concentrate on ditching any non playing bench rookies, and bringing I. The cash generation.

      Cpt Pugwash · 20/04/2017 at 09:20

      Thanks Moustachio! He is playing at home this week.if he was a fwd or a back I wouldn't be worrying.

    Recovering form a sneaky Broken Toe will get better.

Should I hold Lance Franklin,Scott Pendlebury and Dyson Heppell or should i trade two of them?

    Ja191 · 20/04/2017 at 11:24

    hold hold and hold, waste of trades – look at swapping out rookies

Ja191 · 20/04/2017 at 11:23

hmm who to play on field out of Balic and Parfitt, thoughts?

    Dice · 20/04/2017 at 13:01

    Balic, only coz they're at home and play north.
    I'm in a similar boat with the mids if i bring Balic in this week.
    Who would you choose on field betwen Balic, Parfitt and SPP?

      Ja191 · 20/04/2017 at 18:30

      I'd probably say SPP, most reliable of the three and also playing Carlton. his score last week was poor but was playing GWS

To keep Hibberd or to trade him to Williamson?
My other bench player is Stewart, and I'm running with two premiums down back in Shaw and Laird.

    Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 17:39

    What is the value of a trade? Williamson will bring in $100K+ over the next 2 weeks – if he plays. JS only concern.
    Hibbered is worth zero points and zero $$s. Only value is a loop hole.

    I'd only keep Hibbered if you dont have other loop hole options … BTW I traded him out 2 weeks ago – allowed me to bring in Newman … no brainer.

Will Declan Montford ever play a game of AFL footy ever again?

Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 17:33

Dilemma … Don't need to trade to field a reasonable team this week (projected score of 2231)… but I don't want to miss the $$ to be made on Balic & Williamson. And also Fisher next week with Parsons and Myers to follow. The question is – what $ gain should we place on a trade. Should I burn 2 trades to bring them both in, choose one or none.
To do this my trade out options would be out of SPP, Hampton, Stewart or lesser valued Pickett.

I'm not advocating the following – more as an example of chasing $$ – is it worth burning a trade to get Matera in for a 2 week period to build the bank by $120K ? With a small possibility that it will be higher if he keeps up his scoring for another couple of weeks?

Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 18:41

Newman, Preuss and Balic out !!!

    Piez · 20/04/2017 at 18:49

    and O'meara
    and no sign of Eddy or J Barrett

    Kim · 20/04/2017 at 19:21

    Going to be a bit of carnage this week I think, lets hope our premos perform this week, otherwise could be 2 crap weeks in a row! Really makes cash generation that much harder when half of our bench isn't even playing!

Vinny · 20/04/2017 at 19:06

How the heck does Nic Newman get omitted. He was in their best last week.

Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 19:30

So Williamson and Matera the only real bubble players of any worth.

    Hunts · 21/04/2017 at 08:39

    Horlin-Smith? Or not?
