Just one trade for me this week: Taranto out for Balic.

I could give Pickett or Eddy the flick, but I feel like I just wouldn't get enough cash out of getting rid of one of these two just yet. Chopping Taranto gives me about $130K for a future upgrade at some point.

    Kev · 20/04/2017 at 14:25

    Agree with jez here. Balic would be nice but is not a must have like Newman was. Not enough cash to be made from Eddy, Pickett, Hannan types. No trades for me this week. Hopefully my premo's bounce back from the shite they served up last week (not you Dahl ❤️)

    John · 20/04/2017 at 18:29

    balic out!

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:12

    Baltic is not playing

    jez_m · 20/04/2017 at 22:58

    Upon teams being named, that's trade will wait a week.

THE NANK · 20/04/2017 at 14:25

Thoughts on Jaegar out for Balic and this week then trade Rough for Franklin next week?

    Sauce · 20/04/2017 at 15:10

    Good stuff Nank I would pull the trigger

      harryO · 20/04/2017 at 18:30

      balic isnt named…

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:12

    Baltic is not plqyung

Steeeve · 20/04/2017 at 14:27

Taranto out for Balic.
Pickett out for Hanners.

No point waiting for their prices to rise a tiny bit more when there are bargains to be had!

    TBone · 20/04/2017 at 14:39

    Sounds smart to me mate. Looking to paint the fence myself with my two trades next week!

      Steeeve · 20/04/2017 at 15:39

      I want to get full premo ASAP and ride the sweet wave of tons to the end of the season.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:13

    Balic wasn't picked

The Buttonsticher · 20/04/2017 at 14:34

Ainsworth ain't worth it, bye bye. M.Crouch can punch it, I should have known better. In, 2 other _unts

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 14:52

    He Ainsworth nothin. Crouching's slipper saw that coming

      jockreynolds · 20/04/2017 at 15:24

      Love it haaa

        Bobby W · 20/04/2017 at 17:24

        Jock… Matty Crouch output end last year was huge. This year quiet. Sure he hasn't kicked enough but I reckon the big difference is one Brad Crouch. He was inside feeding his brother last year. And is back from injury and torn it apart last week in the ressies. Hold M Crouch. Brad's coming to save the day…

TBone · 20/04/2017 at 14:37

As much as I want to trade down to Balic, I don't know about his ability to score decently each week. Also all rookies will play in my squad other than hibberd. Anyone know how young Williamsons js is over at Carlton? Or should I just wait for another def rookie to come about? Cheers!

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 14:49

    You'll know more about Williamson's JS in about 3 hours. If you've only got one donut I'd suggest holding. I've got 3 & it's giving me the shits

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:13

    Baltic isn't playing

Tommo09 · 20/04/2017 at 14:39

One trade this week

Hannan or Eddy for Balic
Giving Rough one more chance
Roughy, you better deliver

    Sauce · 20/04/2017 at 15:12

    Good stuff

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:13

    Neither are playing

Seeker · 20/04/2017 at 14:43

Taranto to Balic is likely for me this week. My simple forecast is that Taranto on increases about $8,000 to $10000, Balic more likely to add 3-4 times that in cash. Then next week with a sizeable bank and Hampton, Marchbank,SPP or even WHE on the chopping block, I'll look to 'paint the fence' with Fisher and a fallen premo.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:14

    Baltic is t playing

      Sana · 20/04/2017 at 20:53

      Mate! I've read this about 10 times now! It's Balic!!! No T!

INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 14:47

If none of Mountford Eddy or Barrett are named then one will become Balic. Undecided on JOM, might grab my doctor bag & go visit his knee. Of course if he is not named he's gone

    thisisscoman · 20/04/2017 at 15:26

    The first half of this is where I'm sitting. No good having three guys doing nothing. Might as well get one generating a bit of cash. If none are named, it's probably Eddy out for cash. If Eddy is named, it's Mountford cos I don't know if we'll ever see him again. Barrett is the most likely to play again soon, so the last to be traded.

    That's my order anyway.

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 16:06

      I agree with that order as well. I'd rather not get rid of any. After all they were selected for round 1 so they must be rated

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:14

    Baltic isn't playing

Crows · 20/04/2017 at 14:47

Sam Reid $350,600 for Balic and Andrew McGrath for Sam Docherty or Rory Laird

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 14:56

    Andrew McGrath has a BE of 4. Wouldn't you be confident he can cover that? He could tear Anzac day apart. Unless he's not playing that's ridiculous. Shelve that plan quick smart

    Gaz · 20/04/2017 at 17:02

    I would definitely hold Mc Grath a bit longer.

Westy · 20/04/2017 at 14:49

Balic seems to be the panacea. In for JOM or WHE.

Need a bit more cash out of my rooks before I start fence painting.

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 15:00

    My rule of thumb is if your trading a player over 300k you send them up to a premo. A player under 300 you send them down. But I guess everyone is different. I'd therefore wait to send those boys up

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:15

    Neither he isn't playing

Choppers · 20/04/2017 at 14:54

I'd like to go Hoskin-Elliott to Macrae but need to also get rid of concussed Hibberd to have enough cash. So will bring Williamson in if named. Also have Barrett and Eddy on the bench. Or maybe I don't trade at all. Any thoughts?

    C-Train · 20/04/2017 at 16:40

    I am with you Choppers. All my rooks are playing and although not killing it, why waste a trade for a similar rook? Sit tight!

Peter Demetriou · 20/04/2017 at 15:10

300k in the bank
Looking at an upgrade in the mids to hanneberry, either from: J. Omera, S, powel-pepper, or Florent.

Then downgrade to balic from either: eddy, picket or tarranto.

What do you guys think?
Really want t.adams but not ready to move on any rookies just yet.

    Macca · 20/04/2017 at 15:26

    Personally I'd wait a week on the Hanneberry trade, BE of 108 so unless he goes off price isnt going to change too much, and allows a little extra cash gen from the others

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 16:10

      Goo advice Macca considering he's only passed the tonne once this season

    C-Train · 20/04/2017 at 16:54

    Hold SPP for this week Pete, he might get 100 against the Blues!

Krups · 20/04/2017 at 15:18

Swallow out for Balic?
Higgins up to Roo?

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:19

    Baltic isn't playinn

Dylan · 20/04/2017 at 15:19

Who's the better long term option out of Marc Murphy, Brendon Goddard and Ollie Wines?

    Kev · 20/04/2017 at 16:42


Macca · 20/04/2017 at 15:22

Can either be aggressive and go Rough down to Balic and bank the cash
Or play it safe and just go a Barrett/Eddy (depends who is named) for Balic

Tough choices

    Kev · 20/04/2017 at 16:45

    I'd hold Barrett no matter what you do. He's too good for NEAFL and has a b.e of -22. Eddy, despite his -33 b.e, can't seem to nail down his spot.

Johno · 20/04/2017 at 15:24

Anyone have any thoughts on Shaun Burgoyne. Got him in to start with as a POD, but he is leaking cash almost as fast as Heater. I usually stick fat with premo's, but not sure whether he will/can turn it around.

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:17

    Hawthorn is cooked
    I started with Burgoyne but something told me to change him to JJ before they both played with unlimited trades

Josh Kelly · 20/04/2017 at 15:25

Swallow to Hannebery and Marchbank to Berry also would leave me with 100k in the bank, what does everyone think?

    LtDraught · 20/04/2017 at 15:43

    Going to North Melbourne would leave you with 9 million Josh, id consider that move

    In all seriousness I like the swallow > Hanners move, its a classic upgrade to a fallen premo. However im not sold on Marchbank > Berry. Berry hasnt looked promising with his scores at all, and Marchbank's BE is only 47 so i still see cash to be made. Apart from his 56 in the heavy rain he's scored decently.

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 16:12

      After what Berry has dished up so far I'd wait another week till after his price drops

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:15

      Insane to move on Marchbank he will be ripe when he has his bye

Chevy · 20/04/2017 at 15:25

The B. VINCE conundrum….

    Mason · 20/04/2017 at 20:22

    Trade him out!

Rivo · 20/04/2017 at 15:25

I'm done with JOM & Roughy.
In comes Rocky & Balic.

    Youngy · 20/04/2017 at 15:32

    Solid trades.

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:14

      Yup nice trades bro

    Soothsayer · 20/04/2017 at 16:28

    I just keep staring them thinking that surely they will come good, but they have to come good straight away or they lose cash compared to the premium's increases.. I want to bring in Sloane though, he he is reliable, but if he goes up more than 10k this week and JOM and Roughy spud it up, I won't wont be able to afford Sloane. What to Do?

      Rivo · 20/04/2017 at 17:52

      Sloane was very close to being picked but I think Rocky can go large and has a higher curling. Very tough call though. Sloane is in great form too. I would get him in now.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:19

    Balic is t playin

    Cr0magn0n · 20/04/2017 at 23:48

    Good move

donn17984 · 20/04/2017 at 15:26

I want to cut H.Shaw for Tom williamson or A.otten?? to make some cash and then bring in Balic. for M.Hibberd. This will leave about 375K in the bank due to cutting H. shaw and I can get a premium next week. Does this look good any suggestions welcome or open to try something else?? was going to cut roughead for sam reid but thought need to get Balic in whilst hes cheap?

Hey Guys current team:





    Macca · 20/04/2017 at 15:28

    Wouldn't trade Shaw, is a proven premo and you'll probably wind up trying to trade him back in later

      donn17984 · 20/04/2017 at 15:36

      You think surely he's got to go? get a money maker in what would you do

        DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:14

        Jocks wise words:

        Trading out Shaw, Simpson and Treloar your banking a loss

        Northernsoul74 · 20/04/2017 at 16:39

        Assuming they're not named I'd be trading at least one of EVW or Hibberd to either Williamson and/or Balic.

          Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:26

          Evw is in

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:19

    Balic isn't playing

      hedski · 20/04/2017 at 19:27

      Everyone knows that now, don't waste your time typin it a hundred times mate.

      Peter Demetriou · 20/04/2017 at 23:09

      Balic not named throws a spanner in the works, absolute carnage.
      No N.Newman, No J.O'Mera, No, O.Florent, No J.Barret, No T.Taranto, No B.Preuss, No B.Eddy!!!!
      struggle city!

    Cr0magn0n · 20/04/2017 at 23:49

    Dont trade Shaw, it's a marathon not a sprint

Jeffreyhead · 20/04/2017 at 15:31

Oli Florent to balic, then mister handball crouch to Lynch up fwd. Crouch is a stain and i don't see lynch getting any cheaper. Still only have one on field rookie in the guts as i started with 6-1-4 there. Thoughts?

Patch · 20/04/2017 at 15:33

Torn between bringing Stef or Taylor Adams in – will have both eventually but will need to wait on one of them. Been on the Adams train most of the week but think I'll go for Stef, as it lets me play one less shonky forward rookie (Nank swings forward).

Although if SPP isn't named, as the whispers suggest, I might go to Adams and have him in the middle

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:13

    I did Steff too Patch, I started the season with Hickey…. I know I know

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 16:27

    I think SPP will be named Patch, Hinkley said on afl site he's backing him in. I got Stef in for Roughy swinging Nank fwd also, don't think we'll see Stef this cheap for a while.

donn17984 · 20/04/2017 at 15:35

I want to cut H.Shaw for Tom williamson or A.otten?? to make some cash and then bring in Balic. for M.Hibberd. This will leave about 375K in the bank due to cutting H. shaw and I can get a premium next week. Does this look good any suggestions welcome or open to try something else?? was going to cut roughead for sam reid but thought need to get Balic in whilst hes cheap?

    Andrew · 20/04/2017 at 16:00

    Leave Shaw. He will come good and it will just burn two trades when he finds form again and you look to bring him in.

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:11

    So many trades to cut off one premo for eventually a prem back that's insane

Trade Itch · 20/04/2017 at 15:39

Going Parfitt and SPP for Parsons and Matera.
Thinking Parsons will come back so will just get him now as I like the look of him, will pass on Balic. Punting on Matera into F6 as a limited risk. He may just make a few $ before the bye debacle kicks in.
Have stacked the Backline, Rucks and Fwds with mid pricers. Mids started complete with Fyfe at M8. A little bit different but you never know.
24 trades left and the premium upgrades of the mid pricers start next week. Roughy 1st to go then.

    Andrew · 20/04/2017 at 15:59

    Mate!!! Parfitt has a -30 BE. He will make money for the next few weeks and then you can go to Parsons when he gets back. Make yourself maybe an extra 60k odd. You may as well leave him on your bench to grow if you're stacked and then drop him for Parson's once he's actually playing again.

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 16:16

    Wow. Just wow

      Josh · 20/04/2017 at 23:47

      What are trades pieman? Still
      Holding Heath Shaw as he bleeds cash?

        Raging Bulls · 21/04/2017 at 10:18

        It doesn't matter if they 'bleed cash' if you plan on keeping them all season. Which you absolutely 100% SHOULD with Heath Shaw as he is a Top 6 Defender… U don't know what you're doing or how to play SC if you trade out Heath Shaw this week. It's as simple as that… Everyone who doesn't have HS should be looking at getting him for a paltry amount next week anyway. First year playing SC Josh?

          josh · 21/04/2017 at 13:15

          nah mate traded Shaw last week when he was up around 560k for cash and points generation as I play for rank, will get him back later when he is around 450 if needed. Have kept him for the whole season in previous years but trying first mover principle. Not my first rodeo champ. Pieman lambasted me last week on Shaw and you can too but cookie cutter trading to Swallow last week didn't really work out did it?

    Northernsoul74 · 20/04/2017 at 16:41

    Amateur hour.

    Jager Bombs · 20/04/2017 at 18:22

    I just laughed out loud on the train home. Mate step away from the computer and dont press the trade button.

Steeeve · 20/04/2017 at 15:42

Who to trade out?
Eddy, Hannan, Pickett.
All have more cash to make but that's only if they play. Pickett in particular has never come close to Balic's 73 scored last weekend.

    Choppers · 20/04/2017 at 15:54

    Correct Steeeve, Pickett hasn't come close yet. But are you aware that he's increased his score in every game he's played so far.
    Don't think anyone else has done that…..just sayin'.

      Choppers · 20/04/2017 at 15:55

      should have posted…..over 4 games…

Spencer · 20/04/2017 at 15:43

I'm considering Dr Pepper down to Ball Lick then M Crouch into Hand on Berries had a gutful of Crouch can't hold any further he's leaking too much $

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:10

    Know this sounds crazy but that's nearly a side ways trade and SPP will score plenty tomorrow I feel

      Spencer · 20/04/2017 at 17:28

      Potentially…..Crouch is shitting me beyond belief

Jojo · 20/04/2017 at 15:44

Is buddy worth buying this week

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:08

    He is worth holding all year

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 16:21

    No. Has a BE of 138 & playing the Giants. However next week is the beginning of an easy draw….Blues, Lions, North, Saints then Hawks. Should be about 480K & ripe for the picking

    Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 07:44

    Injured, wait a week or so

Adrian · 20/04/2017 at 16:01

Community, am thinking Mitchell Hibberd to Ballic, just because Hibberd hasn't played and is a test for concussion…so at a minimum he's some time away for generating cash.

Although l am wondering should l just wait a week to bring Ballic in for Fisher……and save the trade….not really desperate for Ballic…just doing it for the cash gen this week, but Fisher will be on the bubble next week…think l am talking myself into reversing that trade…..l remember in previous years doing these types of trades, and ended up running out of trades…

What would you do….

    Raging Bulls · 21/04/2017 at 10:24


DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:04

Rookies are:
Newman, Marchbank, Hampton, Stewart
McGrath, SPP, Parfitt, Fox, Barett
Butler, Houston, Bowes, Eddy

Trades have been done and locked for last 3 days they are Hickey > Martin & Hibberd > Lloyd
I'm worried about Howe moving back forward at times are even whole games so picked Lloyd.
Don't feel like I'm missing out on any rookies currently on the bubble

The Ranger · 20/04/2017 at 16:16

I'm seeing a lot of people trading out rookies that still have money to make.
In my experience you need your rookies to make a minimum of 100K (ideally more) before culling them if you want to get to full premo.
I know it's hard to do nothing but sometimes good things come to those that wait.

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:19

    Agree Marchbank and SPP got another 70k to make I feel

      The Ranger · 20/04/2017 at 16:37

      You can add Pickett, Taranto and Eddy to that list.
      They might be earning slowly but they're still earning and an extra 10-20K might be the difference between getting the fallen premo you really want or having to bring in a lesser player later in the season.
      Timing when to jump off a rookie is crucial.

Lenny · 20/04/2017 at 16:20

Zach Merrett and Stefan martin or Rocky and Jack Mcrae

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:21

    First option

DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 16:21

First option by a mile

    Lenny · 20/04/2017 at 16:43

    Because next round i will have spare cash to updrade higgins to Grundy/Martin, do u still recon i should go option 1 DavidSA?

      hedski · 20/04/2017 at 20:54

      Stef will be worth +$50k next week.

Stirlsy · 20/04/2017 at 16:31

2 trades for me this week 1 planned from the start, trade 1 Balic in for Florent.
Trade 2 Sandi to Sloane via dpp Nank jumps up from fwd to Rucks for a while.
Yes i know Sandi still has cash to make but he was always only going to stay in the team for 5 to 6 weeks and if Nank held up and Sandi wasn't avg 105 he was going to be part of first upgrade.

Liam · 20/04/2017 at 16:35

Who should I trade omeara out for to be on the field? Or should I trade Powell-pepper instead?

    Liam · 20/04/2017 at 16:49

    Is it stupid to trade omeara for Balic to play on the field

      Youngy · 21/04/2017 at 11:04

      Yes because Balic isn't playing.

Steven Jurica · 20/04/2017 at 16:38

I think the best indication of whether your team is appreciating enough in price and your rookies are fattening up is your total team value. Mine is $11,187,000 (including cash in bank).

How is everyone else fairing in team value?

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 16:55

    $11,099,000. + $82k bank.

      The Ranger · 20/04/2017 at 17:37

      $10.7 with 300K in the bank.
      My supposed bloody premos have depreciated by $160K between them!

    macca · 20/04/2017 at 17:14

    $11,386,000 +75k bank

    Moustachio · 20/04/2017 at 17:20

    11.48m, sfa in bank. Same as at R4 last year, but much higher ranked which is testament to how shithouse the SC relevant players have been so far!

    SCaddict · 20/04/2017 at 18:02

    $11.4M with negligible bank after upgrading Roughie to Macrae this week.

    Pman · 20/04/2017 at 20:54

    $11,290,740 and $54K in the bank.

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2017 at 21:24

    $10,998,000 and $295k in bank.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 16:51

Hoping Perryman gets a game.
So I can use Hibberd DPP only reason worth holding.
Was keen on Berry but not with those scores.
Depends who is named and dropped.
Probably will bring in balic as have trading strategy all planned out who I am looking at bringing in and when.
Only one flaw – the bloody rookies need to start making some [email protected]#!

    Stirlsy · 20/04/2017 at 16:58

    Yes Trigger, lots of us in the same boat with these crappy rookies.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 17:52

      I mean is it too much to ask for a cheap rookie who plays each week and scores 60's sometimes more? A fwd or a mid would be nice.

Kevdog · 20/04/2017 at 16:57

My current team
Def: Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Mid: Danger, Fyfe, Hannebery, Treloar, M.Crouch, Petrevski-Seton, Powell-Pepper (Barrett, Pickett, Hibberd)
Ruc: Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Nankervis, JJK, Buddy, Butler, Taranto (Parfitt, Eddy)
109k in the bank 28 trades left.
Thinking of going Pickett to Balic and Crouch to Dylan Shiel with 76k left
Thoughts ?

    josh · 21/04/2017 at 15:11

    need to strengthen that engine room I reckon. Shiel nice POD pick but only averaging 100. Could go 1 round early on Hampton, Powell Pepper or Taranto and get Williamson, Fisher as rookie and Sloane, Merrit, Rocky, Bont or Dependelberry as premo mid. Will Shiel finish top 8 mids is question you need to ask yourself.

RickeyRat · 20/04/2017 at 17:05

Thoughts appreciated on offloading Treloar for Rockliff then Titchell for Sloane with the view they go big and score 150+ ,the other two would need 50 possessions to score that as they butcher the ball.
Also ANB for Roughie as he's a dpp and forwards are horrible this year.

    Surferboi · 20/04/2017 at 20:35

    Terrible trades, I'll be looking to get Trelor in a few weeks

Sir Sam · 20/04/2017 at 17:07

Here's my current team:
With 26 trades left and 257k in the bank, I'm thinking Ainsworth to Balic and Powell-Pepper up to Hannebery

Big G · 20/04/2017 at 17:17

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

    Youngy · 20/04/2017 at 21:24

    He should get another game, The question is will he play this year again?

Dildor · 20/04/2017 at 17:18

Can someone tell me Z.Merret's breakeven as well as some projected stats?

    trader · 20/04/2017 at 17:33


    Huggy · 20/04/2017 at 17:48

    Break even of 127 this week Dildor.
    Projected to hover around his current price for the next few weeks. $595k come his round 13 bye

      Dildor · 20/04/2017 at 17:48

      Brilliant thanks

    BigBuggars · 20/04/2017 at 17:58

    be is 128

Tommy · 20/04/2017 at 17:31

Hey guys, this is my team
26 trades, 38k in the bank
DEF: Simmo, T.Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Hampton (newman, Stewart)
Mid: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Treloar, Fyfe, Beams, O'meara, SPP (Parfitt, Pickett, Barrett)
RUC: Grundy, Sandy (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahl, macrae, Buddy, Hoskin Elliot, Butler Houston (Hannan, Eddy)

Thoughts on what i shoudl do? Any help would be great as i'm reasonably new to supercoach

    BigBuggars · 20/04/2017 at 18:09

    What was your score last week? If you scored over 2050, sit tight and let your rookies appreciate. If you need to trade, you could downgrade O'meara for a rookie and pocket some cash for a couple big upgrades next week.

      Tommy · 20/04/2017 at 19:55

      scored 2017 last week, ranked top 7%

        Josh · 21/04/2017 at 15:16

        Good stuff Tommy. If you going for rank then could trade O'Meara and SPP or Hampton and get Williamson on D or Fisher mid then grab Sloane or Merritt or another premium. Sloane only in 5% of teams and Merrit only in 4 can help you increase rank.

          Tommy · 21/04/2017 at 15:40

          Thanks mate, appreciate it! What would you do with JOM this week? I'm completely stuck atm

Dryyak · 20/04/2017 at 17:36

Gone Stewart to Balic via Hibberd and had the cash so went Taranto to Nick Riewoldt, thoughts?

killer · 20/04/2017 at 17:38

Anyone else play both SC NRL /AFL,

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 18:11

    IMO the only good NRL games are the state of origin and the granny.
    (That's all I watch, Sry to the fans out there)

Joe T · 20/04/2017 at 17:38

Hey community! Tossing between using either 1 or 2 trades this week.

Option 1 (cash generation)
Roughy > Balic

Option 2
Roughy > Balic
Taranto > Macrae

2nd option uses an extra trade early in the season but adds a premo replacement for roughy, whereas the first option gives me solid cash generation to upgrade any other areas in the following week. Thoughts?

    Joe T · 20/04/2017 at 19:24

    never mind, absolute carnage this week with team selection. Looks like a week to hold trades!

Rick Grimes · 20/04/2017 at 17:44

Balic probably the only trade I'll look at. Not sure if he's essential tho. I see a lot of people on here taking about trading rookies with negative be. That's crazy talk.

Lenny · 20/04/2017 at 17:44

Is Tom Rockliff really worth it?

    RobDog · 20/04/2017 at 17:59

    Yes! Is fit and firing, and with Beams back he is in a much better midfield this year.

      BradK · 20/04/2017 at 18:26

      There goes my pod. I've had him vc every week so far. Dont know why he was doubted.

    Pman · 20/04/2017 at 20:56

    Rocky is gun but get's too injutred for my liking and have been burnt before (including twice in a one season a few years back!) so he is a No Go Zone for me.

ben andrews · 20/04/2017 at 17:53

does anyone know if harrison wigg is due for a game anytime soon, he is stuck on my bench

WinnerzRGrinnerz · 20/04/2017 at 17:53

Def: Adams, Shaw, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
Mid: Danger, Bont, Fyfe, Treloar, T Mitch, Beams, Swallow, SPP (Barrett, Miles, Hibberd)
Ruck: Ryder, Sandi
Fwd: Dahl, Buddy, Nank, Roughy, WHE, Butler (Pickett, Eddy)

175k in bank

Thinking of going Marchbank to Balic via DPP with Hibberd. Would give me about $350k in the bank ready to go bang bang over the next couple of weeks in the back and forward lines. Thoughts?

    WinnerzRGrinnerz · 20/04/2017 at 18:57

    Scrap that

Liam · 20/04/2017 at 18:22

JOM or SPP for balic or for someone else or hold?

    BradK · 20/04/2017 at 18:24

    Hold mate

Jager Bombs · 20/04/2017 at 18:25

Everyone is bringing in balic but i just think zac fisher next wk could be a much better downgrade option.

He man · 20/04/2017 at 18:25

lol no balic. I love it. That's so funny

TigerMAN · 20/04/2017 at 18:27


    TigerMAN · 20/04/2017 at 18:27

    Rookie midfielder Robbie Fox will miss with a knee injury, with defender Nic Newman and prized draftee Oliver Florent omitted from the team that lost to West Coast in round four.

marcusproudson · 20/04/2017 at 18:27

Balic not selected. Glad I waited hahaha

Juzzy · 20/04/2017 at 18:28

Barrett and Eddy both named as emergencies.

Bummer …

Stewy_the_Swan · 20/04/2017 at 18:30

Roughy to Balic
D Swallow to Sloane
Leaves me with 25 trades and $46k in bank

Team after trades

Def: Laird, Howe, Simpson, Otten, Hampton, Newman (Stewart, Z Guthrie)
Mid: Danger, Sloane, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Titch, Beams, SPP (Parfitt, Barrett, Pickett)
Ruc: Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Dahlhaus, Macrae, Buddy, WHE, Butler, Balic (Houston, Eddy)
Thoughts community?

    CJay · 20/04/2017 at 18:37

    No Balic mate (hip)

Rick Grimes · 20/04/2017 at 18:30

Rookie carnage.

Liam · 20/04/2017 at 18:31

Preuss is rested. Is this true or is he just dropped.

    CJay · 20/04/2017 at 18:43

    Goldy back in town by the look of it.

      trader · 20/04/2017 at 19:47

      Rested my arse only played 3 games and rested????

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 22:59

    Managed means after frightening the beejesus out of Goldy by making Pruess the front man we will unleash the Goldy "beast" after supercoach players have traded him, so that supercoach gods have another giggle at our expense.

      Spakka · 21/04/2017 at 00:36

      Mmm. Or watch goody snap this week…

Declan · 20/04/2017 at 18:34

Absolute carnage with team announcements don't know what to do!!

Northernsoul74 · 20/04/2017 at 18:35

Ha ha Ross Lyon hates supercoach.

Joshua · 20/04/2017 at 18:35

Some spanners in the mix with team announcements, no Balic, Newman, preuss, o'mera.. some people hitting the reverse button i recon.

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 21:35

    Ross is the biggest spanner.

TigerMAN · 20/04/2017 at 18:36

OUT THIS WEEK: N.Newman, Fox, Florent, Preuss, Balic, Taranto, Parsons (suspended), Barrett, Hibberd…..just about any decent rookie

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 18:48

    Many in same boat though only exceptions are Otten and WHE now being the most important rookies to hold till the byes. No other rookies is a safe in this season

INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 18:37

It's a bloodbath! Balic Preuss Newman Taranto Fox Florent GONE! SSSHHHHHIIIIITTTT

    Dogs · 20/04/2017 at 18:39

    There's going to be a few donuts this round I think. Some people would have planned for a lot of them to be on field .

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 18:40

    Reverse trades, reverse trades!!!!

    CJay · 20/04/2017 at 18:40

    Maybe a no trade week? Set and forget your best team and go to the pub.

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 18:45

      this season is going to shit

      Northernsoul74 · 20/04/2017 at 18:45

      Williamson for Hibberd for me. Only trade.

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 18:46

      That's a brilliant idea CJay. Let's do that

        The Ranger · 20/04/2017 at 19:04

        I'm already in the pub.
        Think I might stay here for a bit and go straight to the game on Tuesday.

Declan · 20/04/2017 at 18:41

Is eddy or barrett going to come back to afl?

    Bells E Bubb · 20/04/2017 at 19:42

    Barrett was bog in the ressies this week and laid ten tackles in the ones before being dropped. Mistified as to why he isn't playing. MUST be back soon.
    Besides not like anyone else coming through to swap.
    Confused also on Newman. He's the only Swan other than Buddy who can actually hit a target.

    Danners · 20/04/2017 at 20:11

    Barrett is more likely to play than Eddy. If Barrett has another good week in the NEAFL, he should come back in

INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 18:43

Come this way Jaeger & pop this Blindfold on please. There is business to be done

    Steve1 · 20/04/2017 at 18:46

    haha love the blind fold part, jaeger should of learnt from the last lot you shot 🙂

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 19:57

      He should have Steve. Time for some brutality!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 19:32

    Geez giving him an option of a blindfold.
    Just shoot him in the leg.

      INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 19:59

      Already been shot in the leg Trig. I'm going to blow his bloody head off. Double Barrel shot gun point blank

        Stirlsy · 21/04/2017 at 02:20


Dusty Spurs · 20/04/2017 at 18:44

None of Taranto, Fox or Newman named. All of whom I have.

I was considering trading Taranto earlier as I have some cash in the bank, now I'm strongly considering the trade. I think the other two can still make a considerable amount of cash when they come back in.

I am tossing up between the following: Macrae/T.Adams/Hanneberry/Dusty/Merrett/Neale/Perkins – too many options!!

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2017 at 21:40

    I'm pulling the trigger on jaeger to hanneberry, jaeger to macrae my only other consideration.

    T Adams would be my choice though if I didn't have him, looks a lock for top 2 defenders.

    Cogla13 · 21/04/2017 at 08:45

    Fox has been put back on the rookie list. He ain't going to make didley squat.

      Dusty Spurs · 21/04/2017 at 11:26

      That's going to hurt me.

      Where did you get that information?

Captain Risky · 20/04/2017 at 18:46

Hell.. …..REVERSE Trades !!

a few rookies Ins- Vickers Willis, Melican, Poulson, Black .

RobDog · 20/04/2017 at 18:48

The best laid plans of mice and men…..

SC Gods laughed and laughed.

And all on a week that has games stretched out until Tuesday.

Love this glorious, frustrating game.

Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 18:51

Bloody hell. The Supercoach Gods are crucifying us for having so many discounted players at the start of the season. How the fork do you make money when your rookies all keep getting the chop -Newman, Balic and Pruess- didn't see that coming. Can't keep trading to guess who will play.

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 18:58

    Yup it's an insane season, bar far the hardest in 4 years

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 20:00

    I blame Ross. He conspires against Supercoaches every year

Westy · 20/04/2017 at 18:52

The new phone number for Supercoach – 1800 REVERSE.

Only 3 out of my 8 on the bench are playing.

As much as the trade flies in the face of normal processes, I've brought in a second gamer for JOM via DPP.

No Christmas card for Ross Lyon.

DefyingMadness · 20/04/2017 at 18:52

I think the correct move this week will be to hold trades.

tophawk · 20/04/2017 at 18:53

What is going on with these insane team announcements. No Taranto, No Newman, No Balic, No Robbie Fox, No Jake Barrett, No Mitch Hibberd, No Brett Eddy. ITS A CASE OF LOOPHOLE OVERDOSE this week. (I own 5 of these rookies) Surely Newman and Taranto are just rested. Balic will obviously not come into my team now. At least that happened this week and not next week. My strategy going into next round is in dissaray. Back to the drawing board.

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 19:03

    taranto wont get back in now steve J is back and coniglio and deledio is still to squueze in

Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 18:53

Those people that started with a huge warchest will be smiling more than a cheshire cat atm.

    tophawk · 20/04/2017 at 19:03

    I have 180K sitting in my kitty. Taranto for another new rookie, and 310K and bang nice upgrade this week? 😉 Time to go and have some fun with my side. I should avoid globes this round. Bloody relieved I have some coin to play with after this rookie anihilation. cheers

    tophawk · 20/04/2017 at 19:03

    Crouching 1 will be spanking himself stupid now. hahahaha

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 20:04

    Built a 483k chest last week restructuring. But won't deliver exactly what I want. You'd need a Crouching 600K chest to be tickled pick. And he also has Danger on the slide

SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 18:53

Best FWD under 500k?, already have Buddy. TT has got to go.

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 18:56

    Heeney, or give him a week.

    If I swap TT to mid I can bring in Lloyd and then wait for a DEF/MID rookie, this means that I will have to field Pickett on the field though…

    Thanks everyone.

Steve1 · 20/04/2017 at 18:54

Oh hey there Powell-Pepper, no no no your not useless, they were just jokes of course your welcome in my team.

    Knighta · 21/04/2017 at 00:14


Brett · 20/04/2017 at 18:55

This would have to be the must f*cked up collection of rookies we've ever had. Going to be damn hard to get to full premo if this sh1t keeps happening. Armageddon has come peeps!

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 19:03

    Picking up fallen premiums is now the only option to get full "premo" and everyone is dreaming if they think they can achieve this after the byes like last 3-4 years

Lucas · 20/04/2017 at 18:56

Hoskin elliot out for tom lynch?

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 19:02

    he is one of the rookies you must hold till bye rounds same as the other rookies like SSP, Marchbank, McGrath and Otten.
    Rookies are not safe this year!

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 19:10

    hold WHE, will still rise in price.

    Dean · 20/04/2017 at 19:24

    To even consider trading out WHE is absurd especially to Lynch and I started with Lynch so I hope I am wrong.
    WHE will still make you a decent amount of cash, not to mention WHE scores have been as expected for mine with 88,120,71 & 70 and a breakeven of 87

    Lynch has a average of 99 and that is because of his 161 last week and I am certain that he won't be the type to consistently score you 100 each week, you'll get a few 50's and 60's with Lynch, I will be surprised if he will average above 100 come season end because like most KPP they struggle, however I hope I am wrong.

    MD's · 22/04/2017 at 06:10

    Do it… WHE is cooked, doubt he will average more than 65 and a BE of 49 means you could quite easily stick a fork in him to whoever you choose… I'm gonna shift him on for Goldy via Mankrevis… gotta do something to separate yourself from the pack;)

SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 19:01

Both of those trades sound like good ones.
Lloyd should be a top defender & Martin looking like a top 2 ruck.

Touk tuk · 20/04/2017 at 19:03


Tony · 20/04/2017 at 19:04

Ross Lyon strikes again!!!!!

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 22:32

    Should be the title to the next Star Wars movie 😛

trader · 20/04/2017 at 19:05

Little confused why newman was omitted?

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 19:08

    Same here bud same here

    Dean · 20/04/2017 at 19:28

    I agree TOTALLY However he is on the emergency list so don't be shocked if he is a late inclusion mate.

    Bells E Bubb · 20/04/2017 at 19:47

    Horse doesn't like players who can kick.
    Late in for Buddy maybe.

    Krups · 20/04/2017 at 20:00

    Hip injury

    Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:30

    Goodbyeeeeeee…. Newman..

    Kev · 21/04/2017 at 10:31

    According to Sydney coaching staff he isn't part of the Swans best 22 and he was filling a hole whilst injured players recovered. Pretty basic really.

DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 19:06

Balic is out because of a hip complaint. Must not have don a good job on Ross Lyons balls

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 20:13

    Obviously he didn't finish with a David & Andrew

hedski · 20/04/2017 at 19:09

Hickey out.

James · 20/04/2017 at 19:10

27 Trades, 212k
Shaw, Adams, Tuohy, Marchbank, Otten, Hampton (Hibberd, Newmann)
Pendles, Danger, JPK, Fyfe, Beams, Swallow, P-Pepper, Parfitt (Barrett, Pickett, O'Meara)
Sandi, Martin (Strnadica)
Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Rough, WHE, Hannan (Eddy, Taranto)
Trade advice i need help please.

    Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 20:00

    You have team to field. Hold your trades. Barrett, Eddy and O'Meara will reappear .

    Cpt Pugwash · 20/04/2017 at 20:06

    Taranto (out) or Roughy.

    Taranto may not make it back in. Pull the trigger just in case you get an injury and have to carry a donut or compromised structures.

    Cogla13 · 21/04/2017 at 09:20

    Shaw could be a late out. I'd get some cover onto your defence bench.

hedski · 20/04/2017 at 19:11

Well at least I can loop Hampton and Stewart using Newman now.
TT still going and bugger Roughy, Stefs in.
Now do I sign my season away on Fisher????

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 19:39

    Loop a 30 to a 40. 😛

    Captain Risky · 20/04/2017 at 19:58

    Given Pickett is still playing, you'd think Fisher would stay in far a while, but who knows!

Mitch · 20/04/2017 at 19:13

Marchbank to Williamson worth it??

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:31

    No. Hibberd, Newman or any other non playing rookie for williamson

    SCathiest · 20/04/2017 at 19:35

    Marchbank is rare commodity who is getting a game. That's like rolled gold.

    Cpt Pugwash · 20/04/2017 at 19:57

    No. Too many Carlton rookies.

TigerMAN · 20/04/2017 at 19:14

looks like Horse is Fuming…. Swinging the axe.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:31

    I'm crying

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 19:40

    We all knew the risks with Swans coming back in.

    Cpt Pugwash · 20/04/2017 at 19:56

    Bye Bye Newman !

    That sucks..

Mark · 20/04/2017 at 19:17

Thoughts on trading roughy to fisher and Hampton to Adams or docherty. I know hamptons be is 6 but it's the only way I can afford a premo and not have tom Stewart on field. Or should I just cop Stewart's score??

    KSinny · 20/04/2017 at 19:23

    I'd say cop Stewart's score for a week just like me

    FCAbel · 21/04/2017 at 01:54

    I'd upgrade

hedski · 20/04/2017 at 19:18

Preuss will hurt a LOT of coaches this week, ouch.

    NutSack · 21/04/2017 at 02:52

    Good. LOL!

SCathiest · 20/04/2017 at 19:21

Following the release of those teams, there is even less evidence of a Supercoach god.
1 player out of 8 emergencies getting a game, hopefully Butler isn't dropped too!

    hedski · 20/04/2017 at 19:31

    Ya had to say that!!!!

      eskimo · 20/04/2017 at 22:18

PLEASE [email protected]

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:30

    No. Too many non-playing rookies. Taranto can still generate casg

      Mike · 20/04/2017 at 19:34

      taremto- out . Will he get back in the side

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 20:04

    No job security guaranteed would be my only concern

    Westy · 20/04/2017 at 20:08

    Is he on an extended bench?

Den · 20/04/2017 at 19:27

$495,500 for a new Forward (trading out Isaac Smith), already have Nank, Macrae and Dahlhaus.
Who do you reckon?

    Smart a$$ · 20/04/2017 at 19:29

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:34

    possibly matera. bank 160k and huge cash generation

TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 19:28

Bugger me.
It's a white wash.
Well that just screwed the pooch.
And we don't even know about teams for next Monday/Tuesday.!
Good luck trying to get some cash gen going.
I say if they r playing just gotta roll with it!
22 players? Only time will tell.

Jase · 20/04/2017 at 19:29

All Outs: J. O'Meara, H. Balic, B.Preuss, J. Barrett EMG, B. Eddy EMG, N. Newman EMG, O. Florent, T. Taranto, Fox SUPERCOACH CARNAGE CASH GENERATION BLOODY HELL.. and still RICH, MELB, COLL, ESS still to real ease teams wow!

Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:33

Mate I have
Not playing this week

Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2017 at 19:34

Can I propose that we use mid-pricers for cash gen like Matera maybe. Downgrade someone like Treloar, Shaw who's under performing and upgrade a non-playing rookie

    Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 19:54

    Tactics, strategy and luck will play a huge part in winning Supercoach this year. The winner will need to be Einstein-like.

Tommo09 · 20/04/2017 at 19:35

So none of O'Meara, Newman, Hibberd, Barrett, Eddy, Strnadica are playing on my bench this week

Going to HOLD

    DefyingMadness · 20/04/2017 at 20:38

    Same here, going to HOLD this week

      Tommo09 · 20/04/2017 at 21:04

      Best option IMO at this point
      Even Roughy will be held this week

      Trades will be vital this year

ChasingFinals17 · 20/04/2017 at 19:41

farq sake was going to trade out barlow and Jobe for Rockliff and bBalic but now I dont know what to do. Anyone have any ideas now that Balic has been omitted.

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:32

    if balic is gonna sit on ya pine i'd still do it if that allows u to afford rocky. he has a some hip soreness. he will be back next week.

KSinny · 20/04/2017 at 19:43

Thinking of going Watson to either Wines, hanners, zerret or Saving a bit of cash for either macrae or Ebert. Who do u guys think and feel free to give me any other suggestions

Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 19:43

A big score this week will see a huge leap in the overall rankings

    Daniel Z · 21/04/2017 at 10:53

    Yes, that's how rankings work.


Blaknight · 20/04/2017 at 19:44


Harley Balic – Traded in 11286 (11.61%)

    tophawk · 20/04/2017 at 20:24

    Check again at 8 pm tomorrow night. Harley Balic- Traded out 10286.

    A thousand will be suckers, but the magic of reverse trades will save the rest. Don't get ahead of the humour.

      Blaknight · 20/04/2017 at 20:33

      Aww 🙁

      Pete · 20/04/2017 at 20:41

      Already reversed trade so that's one less

Danners · 20/04/2017 at 19:48

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Ross Lyon will drop a good player for you

    Tibor · 21/04/2017 at 14:08

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue

    You know Rossy Lyon before we started

    So it's all down to you

IntheNickofTime · 20/04/2017 at 19:48

Alright Carlton rookies – who has better JS, Williamson or Fisher?

    JuddWarneLoveChild · 21/04/2017 at 13:32

    Tough one, Williamson looked really good in his first game. He's a good size as well but was quite last week. Fisher looked great last week but husband light frame so think it's the toss of a coin here.

      JuddWarneLoveChild · 21/04/2017 at 13:42

      lol "husband light frame" like wtf… stupid mobile phone spell check… "has a light frame."

Campbell · 20/04/2017 at 19:48

have 55,200k in the bank and 28 trades
was going to trade roughead and taranto but now omeara is not named im not sure and i also have powell-pepper
i need some suggestions on who to get rid of and who to get for them, thanks

    marcusproudson · 20/04/2017 at 21:10

    Hold this week I think

Joshua · 20/04/2017 at 19:49

Taranto my only player affected by the outs. Considering trading him out to fisher early, otherwise i will hold

Thomas · 20/04/2017 at 19:51

Hold JOM one more week? No obvious downgrade options.

    NutSack · 21/04/2017 at 02:54

    No. The guy would get KO'd in a street fight with a lightbulb.

    redherringfc · 21/04/2017 at 07:12

    i'm holding. He should be my M8, this week covered by SPP. hopefully he can get a few good games into him and make a few $$. Looking at his past stats he has potential to average 100 and top $500k. It might not happen or it might take time, but it's a long season with not many trades.

      Daniel Z · 21/04/2017 at 11:01

      None of those things will happen.

      To get to 500k, he would have to average just over 100 for the rest of the year (it would happen in round 23). He might have the potential but he has never averaged 100 before for a season. Also keep in mind that he has not tonned up this year.

Cpt Pugwash · 20/04/2017 at 19:54

Trade for points or Hold for cash!


29 Trades Left
Rank 281
251 pts behind leader

    Danners · 20/04/2017 at 20:07

    It's a marathon, not a sprint. Hold if possible

    Lachlan · 20/04/2017 at 20:32

    I disagree with Danners completely, if you want to win, you need to get some more cash generation happening. I'd look to trade out two of tarranto, eddy and hibberd for some players on the bubble

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 20:40

    I'm with Danners. You have shaw and Dusty to come in for Newman and Taranto. There are no real decent rookies to bring in this week so holding would be a great idea.

SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 19:56

Trade in Heeney for TT
Trade in Lloyd for TT. (Lloyd will be in my midfield)

    Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:06

    Out of those two options, Lloyd

SuperJake · 20/04/2017 at 19:57

Taylor Walker worth going to from Higgins?

    Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:06

    Historically inconsistent like a true key position forward – don't see him as a top 10 fwd by ye so a no from me

    Moustachio · 21/04/2017 at 13:10

    It will maintain your structure, swapping one bad pick for another =p

Pete · 20/04/2017 at 20:05

Ok so I've reversed my Eddy to Balic trade. Thinking the best option is to just hold this week and maybe double trade next week.

    Danners · 20/04/2017 at 20:06

    A good plan, Williamson seems to be the only half decent rookie this week

Blaknight · 20/04/2017 at 20:07

Hey Community, I wasgoing with the following idea.

Out – Roughead + O'Meara
In – Rockliff + Balic

But now with Balic being dropped its thrown in a ball ache. I think Rockliff wont get any cheaper and if i dont move now i dont think i'll ever get him with the way rookies are going this year being dropped all the time, so I think he is must addition this week. I was going to hold O'Meara for one more week but seeing though he's not named again thats it for me on the JOM. That leaves me with Roughy, I sim,ply dont like the way he's playing. I think he's lost his way with the year out (Now that the club has put the captaincy on him I personally think that was a bad move by Hawthorn and this will affect his playing this season) so thats a chop for Roughy.

So with my lack of MID/DEF DPP (Traded Hibberd for Newman) I have to downgrade JOM to a rookie as I dont have the cash. Should I jump on Fisher a week early or take Berry, or is there any FWD rookies I should consider.

Leaves me with 25 trades after the 2 this week.


    Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:33

    Rocky will pull a string. He always does. As a result he will be cheaper later in the season. Just need patience….. patience….THEN POUNCE!!!

      Itchynuts · 20/04/2017 at 20:38

      Agree hubba! He is only tipped to go up and $11/$12k anyway, so going Rocky this week seems too risky. He does put in a quiet one occasionally… big one to wait and see around bye rounds.

    Campbell · 20/04/2017 at 20:38

    balic isnt playing

Lazza · 20/04/2017 at 20:14

I was looking to trade SPP and Pickett (both on my mid bench) … but with Dusty under some doubt the risk of having Pickett's score is high… if you have both in the middle, and with both playing first up, i.e they will be locked in, make sure you have a decent emergency cover for Dusty..

Mark · 20/04/2017 at 20:18

Any news on swallow? Is he playing injured?

    Declan · 21/04/2017 at 07:28

    pretty sure he is playing, he was named

Captain Risky · 20/04/2017 at 20:18

Hannan must be a chance to get dropped as well I think. When do we know the squads for Mon/Tues?

    Joshua · 20/04/2017 at 20:24


    Holmes_Heroes · 20/04/2017 at 20:45

    I know it doesn't always mean anything but Hannan has been named in Casey's VFL team

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 20:55

      With hogan back could be heading for the magoos

Andy · 20/04/2017 at 20:19

Zerrett or Rocky? Zerrett will free up cash for Stef Martin but really want Rocky.
Please help!

    Joshua · 20/04/2017 at 20:24

    Merrett for sure in my book!

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:40

      Don't pay full price on premo whole point is to pick then cheap which this year is golden

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 23:08

    Zerrett for sure. rocky will burn you. maybe an option at the byes

iLoveNMFC · 20/04/2017 at 20:19

Hey community, thoughts?

Pickett to Zac Fisher
O'Meara to Marc Murphy


SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 20:19

Have a few options for this week.

1: Hold TT and play Pickett.
2: Trade TT to Heeney.
3:Swing TT into MID via Pickett and bring in Lloyd. (Doing this means I have to field Pickett & play Lloyd in the midfield and then wait for a MID/DEF rookie to come and then swing Lloyd into the backline)

Thanks everyone.

    Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:04

    Number 3 from those options

Weasel · 20/04/2017 at 20:21

Never thought I'd say this but is Troy Menzel a consideration? Taranto to him nets me 67K and prevents a donut. JS doesn't look great.

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 20:32

    Nope, he could easily get dropped soon.

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:38

      Not with Jenkins out for another 2 weeks and McGovern out for month +

Matze · 20/04/2017 at 20:23

Thoughts on roughy and Taranto out and bring in Wines and martin? Makes mids danger, Fyfe, pendles, JPK, wines, titch and beams… swing nank to fwd and have Martin and grundy as rucks with the strnadica swing too.

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:37


    Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:03

    Not convinced Wines will be top 10 mid (or even top 15).
    Martin yes, but watch for a potential late out this week so leave that trade until the last minute

      Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:46

      Sorry, misread your Stef Martin for Dusty, ignore late out comment ……Stef Martin good option based on current evidence ….

      Matze · 20/04/2017 at 21:48

      So maybe Taranto to Sloane and leave Roughead for another week and just roll with nank and grundy as rucks then.

Jase · 20/04/2017 at 20:25

Any updates on Myers

    Lenny · 20/04/2017 at 21:00

    Sitting out the Anzaz day clash 🙁

Jimmy · 20/04/2017 at 20:27

my first trade is sorted which is Roughead to Balic and with that cash i am going to use the rest of the cash to upgrade JOM to a premium i just need peoples help with who to go with preferable to go with a POD only got 620k so just short of the Bont

1. Selwood = 608k, avg 116 and in 7% teams
2. Shuey = 594k, avg 116 and in 1% teams
3. Merret = 589k, avg 114 and in 4% teams
4. Zorko = 585k, avg 113 and in 3% teams

or is there a better option for me current Mids are Rockliff, Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, Ablett, Priddis, SPP (Partiff, Fox, Barret)

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:34

    Merrit all the way

      DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:35


    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 20:35

    Balic has been dropped mate. Cant trade him in now

    John James · 20/04/2017 at 20:35

    Balic has been dropped.

    Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:36

    Really dude…. look at the ins and out… try again. As for a premo always go the pod. Good call there. Any will do

      Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:36

      Whichever suits you byes

    Jase · 20/04/2017 at 20:40

    Zorko Always consistent rarely dips under 100 and a player like the bont who needs little disposals to score well, e.g. RD 20 last year 14 disposals no goals and 12 tackles 98SC points he will keep his AVG 109.0 last year

    Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:00

    Selwood – and obviously not Balic now

Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 20:38

I think im holding tight this week. Going the early crow on rookies this year appears to be more dangerous than ever.

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 20:49

    You can't even pick them in round 1

Borko · 20/04/2017 at 20:39

Considering TT to George H-S … hoping GHS can do what WHE has done and I hoped Tarranto would do, ie. go up $150k and provide reasonable on field scores.

Have 28 trades so feel I can afford one more corrective, esp if SPP, Pickett and Fisher go OK tomorrow night.

Any thoughts on GHS? I see his TOG is around 65-70%, which is a slight concern but has scored ok and had a good JLT. JS should be ok

Youngy · 20/04/2017 at 20:40

When you traded in Preuss for Gawn last week and he is your R2.


Why didn't I just trade in Stef.

O and for everyone who traded in Balic early, I have no sympathy, u deserve it.

    INPieman · 20/04/2017 at 20:48

    That's painful Youngy. Going early on anyone this season is not advisable at all. So I think you should trade Preuss for Spencer! Why the F not. Or just take the donut. It says Preuss is rested, & he by his own admission is not fit. Will be a hell of a footballer when he is

      Youngy · 20/04/2017 at 21:37

      Option 1: Trade Preuss to Stef

      Option 2: Swing Nank and take Picketts shit that he will produce

      Option 3: Swing Nank trade Preuss or Stnrdica to Premo fwd

      Thinking Opt 2 would like to hold onto Preuss until Byes.

      Thoughts Pieman? I have 400k in bank

        Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:41

        Agree option 2 is the best – fingers crossed Pickett continues his trend so far of increasing his score each week ….

        hedski · 20/04/2017 at 21:49


        Northerner · 21/04/2017 at 07:15

        Option 2. Pruess is still one of best cash cows with more value. Hold him.

        INPieman · 21/04/2017 at 07:43

        I'd wait to see if Preuss is back next week. I'd just suck up what Pickett delivers. It's going to be a tough week for most. I have 6 out so far & must trade JOM to avoid a donut

    JDP · 20/04/2017 at 22:02

    Get Martin in- Goldy still top dog at Kanga's

    Kev · 21/04/2017 at 09:36

    Jeez that's a terrible trade in hindsight. Premo ruck for a rookie. Least your bank balance will look nice and shiny!

      Youngy · 21/04/2017 at 11:06

      I noticed that cash generation was going to be hard to find this year, was hoping he would pump out an 80 average up until the byes. There was definitely merit to the trade. It just didn't pan out.

CJay · 20/04/2017 at 20:40

Hardest job for tomorrow….. Patch with the Panic Room.
Good luck mate.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/04/2017 at 20:53

    Will have to pull an all nighter!

    Will be buzzing off red bull tomorrow.

Rivo · 20/04/2017 at 20:41

Carnage. Could manage to field a team but that means Hampton at D6 & Stewart D7. $86k and 27 trades…

Option 1 – Hold
Option 2 – Roughy & JOM to Rocky & Fisher. Leaves $58k;
Option 3 – JOM & Taranto to Hanners & Fisher. Leaves $8k.

    Darren · 20/04/2017 at 21:04

    Looking at exact same trades, if rocky gets through a season unscathed 120+ avg, but with cash gen so tough hanners at a discount might be the way to go. Think I would be real dirty if hanners out scored rocky n traded in rocky.

      Rivo · 20/04/2017 at 21:29

      Very hard call. Hanners could come good and is cheap for a premo. Need to wait for final teams before decision.

        RobDog · 20/04/2017 at 23:29

        Option 1. Hampton has been good in his 'role for the team' and am backing him to translate this to points against a lower opposition. Save your trades and back him in at D6. He'll go 80SC this week. Especially if you use your trades. Murphy's Law is REAL!

Pman · 20/04/2017 at 20:44

Mayhem at the selection table as far as rookies are concerned which has really thrown my plans out of wack as far as cash generation is concerned. Had planned to go one up and one down with Taranto/SPP to Balic and then was going to trade either C Ward for Bont/Martin/Sloan or Shaw to Docherty with about $100K in the bank. Now will be holding all my rookies for another week but are seriously considering swapping Ward for Murphy and Ward for Laird but will be left with only $4K and cant afford any better options. Is this too much of a corrective sideways trade as both Shaw and Ward are really struggling and bleeding cash? I currently have 27 trades. Is this is a good move or should I sit tight and hope Ward and Shaw come good?

    DavidSA · 20/04/2017 at 20:48

    Gotta hold them surely?

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2017 at 21:34


      Pman · 20/04/2017 at 22:22

      Yeah I'm starting to think hold aswell, plenty of my opponents will face similar problems and rookie carnage so probably a good week to sit tight. Cheers..

    Moustachio · 21/04/2017 at 13:42

    I'd ditch Ward, but not Heater

Macca · 20/04/2017 at 20:52

What to do with bloody O'Meara?? Want to ditch him but there are no good downgrades for the weak-kneed bastard!

    Macca · 20/04/2017 at 20:57

    Maybe O'Meara to Horlin-Smith?? Bank the 100k?

    Pman · 20/04/2017 at 21:23

    If you've got bench coverage then hold off until next week if Balic is back in Freo. I dumped JOM last week for Swallow which may or may not be a good trade?!

Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 20:59

All my bench players in Mid are out, leaving Pickett on the field – not willing to cop that, so looking to trade TT to one of the following (with $300k in the bank at present):

1) Macrae (WB) $517k- most consistent, 20% ownership, can probably pick him up for similar price later – also dpp
2) Lynch (GC) $488k – least consistent, 8% ownership, low be but $18k drop from starting price so fits the mantra of buying at reduced price – no dpp
3) Lloyd (Syd) $489k – good consistency so far but can he maintain it?, 10% ownership, will likely rise and stay above $500k going forward – dpp (would be in midfield for a few weeks)

I know Macrae is the sensible option, but I'm tempted by the other two options, especially Lynch. What do the community think?

    Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 21:19

    Risk it for the biscuit. Go whichever of 2 or 3 fits your bye rounds better

    BigBoyBananana · 20/04/2017 at 22:33

    If you choose Lynch be prepared to take a 50 just about every 3rd week at best, enjoy the rollercoaster but I would much rather go with a forward who is guarenteed midfield time

Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:02

Safe yes in terms of getting games, but you'd need him to perform as a cashcow and I don't see him making you $150 profit ….. plus you're investing enough $s to buy nearly two "normal" rookies – not for me unless new rookies totally dry out

min0008 · 20/04/2017 at 21:03

Here is my team:
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Hampton, Otten, Newman (M Hibberd, Stewart)
MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Fyfe, Mitchell, Beams, Dahlhaus, Parfitt (Powell Pepper, Barrett, Pickett)
RUC: Gawn, Sandilands (Cameron)
FWD: Macrae, Lynch, Nankervis, WHE, Butler, Houston (Eddy, Allison)

Still got $80k in the bank and looking to do 0 or 1 trades this week.
Either no Williamson or one of Eddy/Barrett to Williamson via Hibberd

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 22:03

    Got to get rid of gawn mate. Straight swap for Grundy or Stef Martin.

    min0008 · 21/04/2017 at 01:31

    i meant Grundy instead of Gawn; i traded him out last week! 🙂

Lethal92 · 20/04/2017 at 21:07

Taranto for matera thoughts

    marcusproudson · 20/04/2017 at 21:37

    Very small sample size for matera. Mid price massive risk I think

      Dutch · 20/04/2017 at 21:48

      Agree, risky

        Lethal92 · 20/04/2017 at 22:10

        Thanks boys

          Tomtom · 21/04/2017 at 00:30

          Twould be a silly ludicrous trade, only a true numpty would do. So i already have. Break out year for matera!

The BONT · 20/04/2017 at 21:08


Roughead to Nankervis (when they were the same price)
Shaw to R. Burton ( Before Shaw lost $50K and went Burton over Newman before he got Ommited)
Taranto to M.Murph ( Taranto only make $20K while Murphy got me $50K )

    DefyingMadness · 20/04/2017 at 21:35

    76, Projected 80% chance of hitting it

      Oliver · 20/04/2017 at 21:50

      Hmm tough call..right on his average.

      Where did you get the 80% projection?

        Tommo09 · 20/04/2017 at 22:22

        I'm holding for one more week
        If he spuds it up again this weekend, straight to Dahl

BigBoyBananana · 20/04/2017 at 21:17

I have Taranto, I have O'Meara, I have Newman, I have Barrett, I have Eddy and I also have Mitch Hannan with Pickett and SPP on field

I also went into this round with 28 trades, and it's staying this way #holdholdhold

Some say I have massive balls, i say I have a massive bananananana

    tophawk · 20/04/2017 at 21:32

    You dont have Balic. Aka Ball lick. Ross does not Swallow…..Damn. He has been (balls) dropped.


      BigBoyBananana · 20/04/2017 at 21:41

      Cheers for that Hawk, when I looked at the teams i did say 'for fox sake!',

Jonathan · 20/04/2017 at 21:22

Rocky or Zerrett!?!? It's killing me

    Northerner · 21/04/2017 at 07:09

    It's high ceiling with high risk of missing games v greater consistency. If it's Rocky, it's this week. You can wait on Merrett

    Josh · 21/04/2017 at 17:54


TheScacman · 20/04/2017 at 21:39

Big one community, dropping roughead down to fisher (carlton) one week early via dpp – houston on field, meaning that Stewart down back gets upgraded to Lloyd to cover for the loss of newman this week. Bang.

    Northerner · 21/04/2017 at 07:06


jacob · 20/04/2017 at 21:48

i dont quite have enough cash in the bank for 2 upgrades
however have gone mills to JPK via DPP, had enough of mills..

looking at shaw, simpson, dusty, ablett to come! thoughts?

    JDP · 20/04/2017 at 21:55

    JPK has been Swans saviour m8 – gives his all

Banga · 20/04/2017 at 21:50

Option 1: Hold JOM and use to loophole Danger into Pendles

Option 2: Trade JOM down to fisher and loophole Fyfe into Danger/Pendles

Leaning towards option 1 as not sold on putting C on Danger this week due to his history against the Saints and the rib injury he suffered.

Andy · 20/04/2017 at 21:51

Glad Balic OUT, will make us more inventive and thoughtful in our Trades.

Yohann · 20/04/2017 at 22:00

With all these shocking outs, is there anyone logical to downgrade Roughead to? Don't have the cash to upgrade either. Or any other good downgrade options around the ground?

    BigBoyBananana · 20/04/2017 at 22:30

    may as well hold onto him for now mate until either a premo starts going terribly or a rookie puts their hand up. Trades are valuable never ever trade for the sake of trading, best of luck

      Yohann · 21/04/2017 at 09:12

      thanks bigboy!

Swans2012 · 20/04/2017 at 22:07

With the rookie carnage I can no longer resist hanneberry
Jom to hanneberry
Now Dan for all of our sakes get your hands off your berrys and find the god damned pill…. please

Borko · 20/04/2017 at 22:08

Does anyone still have Kayne Turner? Giving some thought to trading him out this week instead of TT, especially if Powell-Pepper does ok? Just think that Tarranto has a bit more upside if he can get back in the team.

    JDP · 20/04/2017 at 22:54

    Turner is in the Kangas best 22. Probably not S:C gun but he is going to be a ripper player

    4rm · 20/04/2017 at 23:37

    Turner will play each week, has great job security, and has been playing well without scoring a lot. I have him and are holding. He's a slow burner that offers security and I reckon will have the occasional game scoring well, which will keep his price ticking along nicely.

Don't Blush Baby · 20/04/2017 at 22:08

Has anyone heard from Derek ? His silence is deafening , maybe still in shock with all the carnage from teams named tonight !

    Derek · 20/04/2017 at 22:52

    Have been down the (NSW) south coast swimming with the seals off Montague Is.

    Just got home and had a look at the teams……… WOW……. feels like we will be swimming with the Sharks this week.

      4rm · 20/04/2017 at 23:41

      Great place, spend my summer holidays at Narooma, Lots of seals can lead to sharks. Did you find a shark move whilst swimming with the seals mate?

Spakka · 20/04/2017 at 22:09

Lol. It's almost like there is a sc God who architected the perfect set of ins and outs to stuff most peoples trade plans this week.Gots to love sc.

Crow · 20/04/2017 at 22:21

Hey community needing some advice
Team is
DEF : Laird, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Hampton, Stewart ( Newman, Smith)
MID : Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Rockliff, Fyfe, Ablett, Cripps, Beams, Powell Pepper, ( Barrett, Pickett, Parfitt)
RK : Martin, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD : Dahlhaus, Greene, Nankervis, Steele, Butler, Houston (Taranto, Eddy)
81.6k in the bank.
The only trades i can think of is Taranto to Fisher but Fishers only played a game or trade Hampton for Williamson but Curtly i think will make some money still.
So hold or trade!

    Joshua · 20/04/2017 at 22:28


    Keenbutclueless · 20/04/2017 at 22:42

    Consider Smith for Williamson. You will need to get rid of him at some point. If not Williamson wait and see HOE EVW goes for a couple of weeks. On balance I think EVW might be a better option long term. But we all have the short term need for cash generation and Williamson might be the bird in the hand.

      harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:48


    Notorious mac · 21/04/2017 at 05:44

    If it's worth anything im going early on fisher. Trading out turner. Then hopefully next be able to trade to another rookie to strengthen my backline as my only premos are Laird and Simpson

Jonathan · 20/04/2017 at 22:28

Yeo or heeney

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:47

    watch heeneys first 2 games.. if his match fit and continues his finals form and preseason jump on. yo's consistency worries me

    JDP · 20/04/2017 at 22:51

    Iif you need to trade this week I would go Heeney – he is the one everyone was looking at pre season

harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:29

anyone else buying into this matera hype? thinking of pulling the treigger on roughy too matera…

    Hubba · 20/04/2017 at 22:36

    No… youd be better off replying with your credit card to that email from the nigerian prince in your inbox..

    Billioux · 20/04/2017 at 22:37

    Ridiculously it is a maybe..100k will be made in 2 weeks.Crazy year needs crazy like thoughts.

    Pman · 20/04/2017 at 23:37

    No….he is fools gold.

J Bonce · 20/04/2017 at 22:36

G'day Community

Jaeger: surely he's gotta go…

Thinking of uograding to a fallen premo mid? Ward? Shiel? Any others?? (Sadly) I already have hanners

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 22:46

    jump on murph. his not gonna slow down anytime soon

Don't Blush Baby · 20/04/2017 at 22:52

VC Bont or might even go S.Martin ? – the VC is crucial this week as we don't how fit Danger is. Its always nice to have those double points locked away in the early games.

    harryO · 20/04/2017 at 23:00

    i have VCd stef! if that backfires i'll just C danger

Top Gun · 20/04/2017 at 23:06

So many rookies not playing…may as well go the full dummy spit and bring in Lyons lovechild Zac Dorkson, even if he's not playing

Jordan · 20/04/2017 at 23:16

will barret play again?

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 23:27

    He should

    RobDog · 20/04/2017 at 23:35

    Yes. He will keep pumping out big NEAFL scores and the Lions will keep losing. He will be back.

Big M · 20/04/2017 at 23:23

Crikey, not sure how to get Rockliff in the team now – no downgrade options for rookies
got 80k in bank, not sure whether to trade out A Treloar for Rockie

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 23:27

    Don't trade Treloar, just wait for another rookie to pop up.

    Pman · 20/04/2017 at 23:41

    Treloar will come good and as great as Rocky is he is far too injury prone and hasn't played anything that resembles a full season in years. He is a high scoring Burn Man due to the games he misses and for that reason I have stamped his papers "Never Again" .

relton · 20/04/2017 at 23:26

JOM's knee isues are worse than first thought apparently… whose a good trade option?? or hold and get balic or fisher next week…

    SF4 · 20/04/2017 at 23:33

    How much cash have you got in the bank?

      relton · 20/04/2017 at 23:36

      only 108k

b<>i · 20/04/2017 at 23:32

Who is the best option for Taranto, can only choose from players under 501k. MID and FWD only.

    relton · 20/04/2017 at 23:36

    clayton oliver… if he's under that price

TBone · 20/04/2017 at 23:33

VC this weekend on Wines, Dahl or Laird? Thanks lads

    relton · 20/04/2017 at 23:37

    toss of the coin between dahl or wines… maybe dahl for me

      TBone · 20/04/2017 at 23:50

      might be tagged though is the only thing… coming up against brisbane

    Antonio · 21/04/2017 at 07:44

    I'm going Dahl … worth the shot!

    The Ranger · 21/04/2017 at 07:47

    Have you seen that Carlton team?

NutSack · 21/04/2017 at 02:56

Time to put the ol' nutsack on the line and hopefully walk away with 2 aggits. Matera is coming into my team.

    Northerner · 21/04/2017 at 06:59

    For your sake, I hope they're not blue from unmet expectation in a few week's time! Bold. Your call has to be you are picking up an emerging premium keeper on the cheap. Given that, if he is that, paying an extra $50k to see at least one more data point is worth considering. He'd stil be cheap then.

    Also he's only had one good reliable scoring game. His first was a 98 from 6 goals. They were nearly all cheap and easy goals. I was there. In the best players, he was last named of a long list. I'd want a bigger score from a six goal bag as a reliable datapoint.

    Good luck with your call

Antonio · 21/04/2017 at 07:43

Ok people – help me out here

Lost my patience with Jager, ready to trade – but 2 options

Trade out O'meara and Hampton for Williamson and either Hanners, Murphy or Heppel (pod) in Mids,
or for Balic (mid) and T Adams in Def

Balic not playing says Hampton to Williamson and upgrade the mid premo is the wise move. but which opton??

    Shane · 21/04/2017 at 08:00

    Willamson and Murphy

Shane · 21/04/2017 at 07:59

Doch, Adams, Laird, Marchbank, Otten, Hampton (Stewart, Newmann)


    Kev · 21/04/2017 at 09:32

    Hold. He's hardly a must have.

Ado is annoying · 21/04/2017 at 08:05

Thoughts on this communtiy keep in mind I have a 4 premos defence

Alex rance down to march bank

Jaegar up to hanners

    trader · 21/04/2017 at 08:39

    You are kidding right? If your not you shouldn't be playing sc?

KSinny · 21/04/2017 at 08:11

Who should I get for Watson anyone $600k or less

    whatyousmokin · 21/04/2017 at 09:33

    JPK, Hanners.

Jennifer · 21/04/2017 at 08:15

I was going to be patient with Taranto but now that gws have axed him I need to do the same cash on hand gives me 453k to spend on either a fwd or a mid. I won't take Higgins and already have Jobe, roughy beams spp. Early thoughts are jack Martin, petracca or Hogan. I could take a rookie for cash generator but would prefer to win league match, the win is priority over my ranking. My early options aren't ideal due to consistency issues but I am leaning towards guffers Hogan. He owes his team big time and has always looked like at some point he will explode. Any thoughts on my thoughts or other suggestions greatly appreciated

    Kev · 21/04/2017 at 09:32

    I agree that they are not the best options. Setting your team up for the long run is just as important as getting a league win for just the week.

    If you want to move on Taranto then do so, but don't spend that coin on an average player that will make problems for you

Stav · 21/04/2017 at 08:28

Brought in Higgins when Roo was injured. Don't want to redo that swap. Is Tex valid option? Or do I hold Higgins from here till the byes?

    Itchyballs · 21/04/2017 at 08:35


    Tibor · 21/04/2017 at 09:08

    You were wrong to get Higgins in and you know that. It's ok you are hardly on your own and plenty of us have been conned into Higgins more than once. You mention Roo like you know he is the best choice and he is. So why take tex?

    You can't erase the previous error by avoiding Roo. Just get the bloke you can afford who you think is best.

red5 · 21/04/2017 at 08:28

Best Value for money premo?
Whats the best way to work it out, AVG divided by Price?

    Itchyballs · 21/04/2017 at 08:39

    Plenty of sites do the heavy lifting for you. Tooserious, footywire etc. but best value does not always equal Best Buy! Look at the results but go with ur gut

      red5 · 21/04/2017 at 08:51

      Tooserious is a good one

    TheScacman · 21/04/2017 at 09:12

    Go for players with historically low floors i.e Sloane, Pendles rather than the boom/bust scores of a Rockliff

R. Lyon · 21/04/2017 at 08:29

Just to add to the carnage for Dusty owners, he's in some doubt for Monday game with a dicky groin.

    Tibor · 21/04/2017 at 09:12

    He'll be fine, he has got till Monday night and word is he will have acupuncture over the weekend. Some new method with chopsticks apparently

Sam · 21/04/2017 at 08:48

Stewart and EVW on the bench….who to bring for Newman?

    redherringfc · 21/04/2017 at 08:58


Moosehead · 21/04/2017 at 09:06

One must study form and not always adhere to the 'expert' advice of Jock, his crew and the forum and of course, luck plays a big part of SC success.
Wouldn't one think that Barrett and Newman after their most recent games be safe for a while?
My team is settled and I don't need them so they will stay on my bench for the moment. I do have some hope for Barrett but Newman?
Did they not follow team rules? Attitude problem? Poor training? Selfish play?
Thoughts anyone?

    TheScacman · 21/04/2017 at 09:11

    Newman likely to be a victim of the big "ins" for Sydney this week, particularly Gary Rohan in the back half

      Swans2012 · 21/04/2017 at 09:47

      Mcveigh to come back in still as well, only hope is if they decide to chop one of the other rookies at some point, or if a late out occurs. If he hadn't looked so promising you'd chop him but he seems like given a decent crack he'd lock himself into the ones….. frustrating…

    Dildor · 21/04/2017 at 09:49

    I imagine he will come back in at some stage. It's unfortunate that Sydney have decided veterans over the future, but vsing GWS in a must win game who could blaim them. Perhaps a loss for them could see the rookies come back in? GO GWS!

Tommo09 · 21/04/2017 at 09:09

Bont into Danger/Selwood/JJK for captain this week

Also, should I try to loop SPP and Parfitt using Barrett
Am a bit worried that Barrett might be a late in

Steven Jurica · 21/04/2017 at 09:21

I can't go past Clayton Oliver at 482k this week as an upgrade for JOM. He is the real deal, averaging 115 he'll win you alot of games in your league. GET ON BOARD.

    Derek · 21/04/2017 at 09:43

    Too late mate. Too expensive now.

Banga · 21/04/2017 at 09:27

Option 1: Hold JOM and use to loophole Danger into Pendles

Option 2: Trade JOM down to fisher and loophole Fyfe into Danger/Pendles

Leaning towards option 1 as not sold on putting C on Danger this week due to his history against the Saints and the rib injury he suffered.
Which option community?

Cozza · 21/04/2017 at 09:28

Can trade Taranto to NRiewoldt this week (leaving 24 trades) or sit on my hands and wait. Really concerned about cash generation this year, so thinking it may be better to sit on my hands and milk as much as I can from Taranto before trading. I'm assuming he will be back in he next week or two as he is only managed. The trade will drain the bank balance, so hoping to get a bit more from Taranto before burning the trade. Any thoughts community?

    Derek · 21/04/2017 at 09:41

    NRoo is $20k more expensive than start, and most people agreed that was to expensive, then he stuffed his knee again.

    Look to get him much cheaper

Paulio · 21/04/2017 at 09:29

Does no one realise that Balic is just injured, not omitted, or am i taking it out of context?

Thoughts on Matt Crouch sideways to Oliver ??

    Dildor · 21/04/2017 at 09:53

    Id suggest going up to an ultra premo or holding. Sideways trades will burn you up. Don't see oliver in the top 10 mids this year.

THE NANK · 21/04/2017 at 09:43

What's everyone doing/done with Jaegar?

    Loop · 21/04/2017 at 10:03

    Florent to Williamson moved Hibberd into mid – O'M to Lloyd who'll go to my backline later.
    I dont think we'll see Florent again for a while. I decided to take a gamble with Williamson.
    Not a big move but I wanted Lloyd so I did it.

    Swans2012 · 21/04/2017 at 11:40

    I've gone to hanners, wanted to leave it a week but can't watch jaeger sit on the bench again

      Preuss to SMartin this week

    INPieman · 21/04/2017 at 10:32

    If he does he will play 90% forward at least

iLoveNMFC · 21/04/2017 at 09:54

Williamson this week or wait another week for Fisher?

IMpatient · 21/04/2017 at 10:07

Trade J Watson to B Matera for quick cash? 25 trades left after that move.

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 21/04/2017 at 10:15

First post in a couple years

Thinking of maybe going Taranto to T Williamson by moving around a few DPP's. Didn't pay much attention early on and missed the boat on some cash cows, so needing to try generate cash. Only have around 12k in the bank, with 28 trades left. Somehow still ranked 857 overall, kinda by accident haha

Team if I go with that trade:

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Otten, Jones, Marchbank, Hampton (Newman, Williamson)
MID: Rocky, Bont, Jelwood, Adams, Fyfe, JPK, T Mitchell, SPP (Pickett, Hibberd, Atley)
RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Buddy, Nank, Steele, Butler, Hayward (Eddy, Deluca)

Totally open to suggestions and ideas. Don't really want to slide after getting to a decent overall rank

    Derek · 21/04/2017 at 11:19

    Keep TT and trade out Atley

      Krazee-Eyez Killa · 21/04/2017 at 11:23

      my problem is I'm just not going to generate any money getting rid of Atley. I guess I can just hold off on the TT trade for now. knowing my luck he'll come back next week after a rest and tear it up

Dusty's Neck Tatt's · 21/04/2017 at 10:20

It’s a bit risky, but what about Tarantino to Horlin-Smith? Norlin-Smith is 16k less than Taranto, has a breakeven of -4 and has relatively decent scoring ability and job security. Also I would trust him on field a lot more than most other mid rooks

B_1 · 21/04/2017 at 10:26

Laird or Howe…

    Youngy · 21/04/2017 at 10:56


    Derek · 21/04/2017 at 11:17


      JuddWarneLoveChild · 21/04/2017 at 13:44

      Howe as Laird has never played a full season.

    Pablo · 21/04/2017 at 15:58


from outside 50 · 21/04/2017 at 10:27

Community I need some help what do I do, 28 trades left

DEF: Doc, Lair, Howe, Otten, Rance, Hampton (Newman, Stewart)

MID: Danger, Fyfe, JPK, Beams, Trealor, Swallow, Parfitt, SPP (JOM, Barrett, Pickett)

Ruck: NANKilands (Strndica)

FWD: Dal, JJK, Macrae, WHE, Rough, Butler (Eddy, Houston)

Joe · 21/04/2017 at 10:27

I'm new to the game and I'm finding it difficult to understand the trading strategy suggested by the writers/podcasters. Am I really supposed to trade out mid priced players that have done well like Steele, Yeo, Howe for 'Fallen Premiums' like Treloar, Ablett, Watson instead of early season bolters like Murphy, Adams etc?
It doesn't make sense to me

    Luke · 21/04/2017 at 10:48

    You want to eventually have a team full of premiums Joe. To do this you need to trade out rookie players once their breakeven is around their average for another rookie preferably after they are about to play their 3rd game before their price goes up. Mid pricers are hard some people will keep them for the year if they are performing well e.g. Yeo and Howe are in this category, but if they aren't going well and haven't lost money its a good chance to make some cash and trade them down to a rookie. Watson would probably be in the latter category if u have some money in the bank might be a good chance to trade him for a "premium" player. Your better off trading out rookies once they have peaked in price for underperforming premiums like Treloar, Hannebery etc so u get them at a discounted rate and hopefully a premium scoring average. Make sense?

    Moustachio · 21/04/2017 at 16:26

    I think you're misunderstanding the strategy. The fundamental move of SC is to "paint the fence" (one up, one down) by turning one fattened rookie into a premo (up) and a second fattened rookie into a fresh cheap rookie (down).

    Sometimes if there aren't enough rookies, you might have midpriced players to play the same role, ie generate cash and be upgraded later. Sometimes you will think the midpricer may be a keeper in their own right.

Choice · 21/04/2017 at 10:45

Taranto to Laird, McRae, Riewoldt, Hannebery, JPK pick one

      $70k is a lot to miss out on going JPK though

Shane · 21/04/2017 at 10:45

Thoughts on Matera from the Suns? Breakout or just an awesome fortnight?

    Choice · 21/04/2017 at 10:46

    His contract finishes this season so he may be after a big pay day. He played 2 easy games though so not sure how he'll do against the big boys

    Youngy · 21/04/2017 at 10:58

    I think he is a terrible pick. He will burn off. Probably score 60-70 this week TOPS

      B-Mac · 21/04/2017 at 12:49

      Jesus I wish I was blessed with your foresight.

Hawks · 21/04/2017 at 11:30

Looking to upgrade JOM, can spend upto $520,600.

Thinking of going Gaff, Heppell, Ebert or Yeo

Alternately I can trade SPP to Zac Fisher, and then go JOM to Hannebury.

Thoughts please.

jwill2bong · 21/04/2017 at 11:30

hey guys,

Is there anyway to check other coaches previous trading history?


    Hawks · 21/04/2017 at 11:41


    Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:13

    Only last years winner in this website, its a good guide of what to do and what not to do. Read plenty of crazy trade posts that I certainly won't be doing! Mostly first or second year players, or just no clue whatsoever though.

BlueBoy · 21/04/2017 at 11:38

Over 600k in the bank so Cripps and Eddy to Rocky and Sloane? Sideways yes but Cripps doesn't look right to me.

AlexH · 21/04/2017 at 11:49

trade Taranto to Matera? thoughts? will Matera average over 100 until bye rounds?

andrew · 21/04/2017 at 11:55

Hi team, I've held jacky steven the last 2 weeks, now he is back but thinking a swap to zach merrett. 26 trades left. what do you think

Banga · 21/04/2017 at 12:13

O'meara to Williamson this week or O'meara to Fisher next week? (I also have SPP who is close to culling)

    Banga · 21/04/2017 at 12:17

    Doing this brings Adams to the mids for the time being, meaning my def structure will be 2-0-6 for a couple of weeks

Cotchdaddy · 21/04/2017 at 12:28

What about Taranto to Horlin-Smith? He’s 20k cheaper, has decent JS and a breakeven of -4 and should average 70ish . I don’t think Taranto is going to get another game until much later this year now. If HS could make about 100k, then I would consider it a success.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/04/2017 at 12:34

    Only problem with horlin Smith is he and menegola fighting for one spot.

    The Way Menegola Went Last Week Could Be Straight Back In next week
    HS out?

HBP · 21/04/2017 at 13:00

need your help community, thinking of the following trades:

Hampton – T Adams
Roughie – Matera

Roughie to Macrae


    Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:17

    Toughie to macrae, maters is a terrible pick will not average above 80-85 for he season if that. Don't think roughy will either mind you, macrae is a top 6-8 forward this year.

    Wouldn't be trading Hampton yet, still money to be made from him and Adams is expensive atm, as soon as he has a crap game he will come back down to under $520k better getting him then

      Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:17


    SF4 · 21/04/2017 at 17:15

    Roughy to Macrae.
    We can still hold Hampton for another week or two.

adam · 21/04/2017 at 13:20

OK guys choose one Yeo, Shuey, Jpk, goddard, Mundy

andy_89 · 21/04/2017 at 13:24

Lloyd or Howe this week? Both look like top 6 defenders this year. Lloyd BE of 90 but a little cheaper, Howe BE of 78

Lopping TT down to Fisher and upgrading JOM via Hibbo DPP. Taking a punt on Fish but falling behind and have 28 trades (before these) so leaning towards making an upgrade this week

Juzzy · 21/04/2017 at 14:22

After yesterdays initial shock wore off (and I had had a few stiff drinks) I got to thinking about …. Byes.

My strategy has always been to pick the (reasonably balanced) starting team I wanted and worry about trading around byes when the picture becomes clearer. It's becoming clearer and from a distance it looks pretty scary.

The days of bitching to a Mate that you didn't plan properly and had to play all 3 mid rooks during a bye and they only scored 50 each seem like a pleasant memory.

Round 11 in particular. Rocky, Beams, Zorko, JPK, Hanners, Parker, Buddy, Lloyd, Doc, Murphy,Simpson Oliver, N Roo, Montagna, Steele, Dahl, Bont, Macrae. Plus the Carlton and Sydney cash cows. If you have a selection of these guys it may be worth having a think before you jump on any more.

Good Luck to all.

KSinny · 21/04/2017 at 14:57

Do I take the punt and go roughy to matera? Will give me $248,900k in the bank and his break even is -63! which will make me quite a bit of cash. Thoughts?

    Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:21

    No waste of a trade matera had a great game last game as he kicked a lot of goals. Won't do that every week nor will lynch, wasted sideways trade and you will,have to trade him out sooner rather than later, not even guanteed in their best 22 mate. Might be out of that gc side in 2-3 weeks if a few quiet games , which will happen, has played 2 rubbish sides. They play Adelaide this week and will probably get smashed.

Daniel · 21/04/2017 at 15:43

Ok here it is. I believe Tex can be top 8 fwd this season, and if that's the case now is the time to get him due to low BE.
T.Adams has to wait and with Heeney we will see. That being said I have decided to act be axing 2 doughnuts, and get some points and cash generation. My bank ends up at 1k though. Holding SPP for prob one more week, his BE is reachable.
Taranto and Mitch Hibberd out for Tex Walker and T.Williamson.
Thoughts please community

    Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:24

    Tex has bpnever averaged over 85 I think no way he is a top 8 forward this season mate, he does this every season has 2-3 massive games, sucks some in and burns the crap out of them soon enough. Wasted trade in, trade in a definite keeper like macrae, Dahl or Riewoldt. Adelaide will lose games as well and that's when he will score 50's and 60's.

      Daniel · 21/04/2017 at 16:40

      Fair point, It is a gut feeling.
      Tex ave. 100 playing 16 games a few years ago. But thats not this year is it.

Tom · 21/04/2017 at 15:49

Thoughts on roughy to fisher via ddp and upgrade Stewart to Lloyd or Howe (which one would you choose if you agree)
Any feedback would be appreciated

    Kim · 21/04/2017 at 16:26

    I would wait a week on fisher and see how he goes, trade in when named for third game, Baltic owners are now regretting getting him after only 1 week for sure! Don't make the same mistake they did, could get injured or dropped also.

    josh · 21/04/2017 at 17:47

    Lloyd or Howe good picks and if fisher can sit on your bench then pull the trigger

Lachie · 21/04/2017 at 16:20

Hey guys,
Any idea who I should trade in for Callum Mills and Shannon Hurn? Haven't done too badly but can get the same points for 100k cheaper. Thinking Zak Jones, Jayden Hunt or Aaron Mullett?

    Lachie · 21/04/2017 at 16:38

    Or even Burton?

Swannie · 21/04/2017 at 16:24

Don't be surprised if Newman is a late in for the Swans… Foote out!!!

    Moustachio · 21/04/2017 at 16:31

    Hmmmmmmm hope so, don't wanna run Currly on field.

Eskimo · 21/04/2017 at 16:45

Thinking of trading Heppell to jpk thinking Heppell prolly not going to be top 8 and jpk is cheap as he will be. I'm happy with rest of my mids. Just annoyed me watching Heppell running 20 meters behind the action the whole game last week and jpk gets in there.

josh · 21/04/2017 at 17:40

Changed my trades about 20 times this week. Mainly between which rookies to cull. Have gone with Florent to Tex and Barrett to Williamson by swinging Hibberd into the middle. 50k cash in the bank. Another option was Hoskin-Elliot to Tex and Hibberd to Williamson. I figure I can pick up Adams in a week or two for a similar price. Thoughts?

DeadBuried1 · 21/04/2017 at 19:14

Apart from being awkwardly priced does anyone have any thoughts about the merits of trading in Brayden Fiorini? JS?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 00:18

    Yeah I have some thoughts, he's the kind of risk you take if you're a gambler at heart, the same kind of gamble as Brandan Matera, Tex Walker or Elliott Yeo Yeo…they also qualify as speculative picks aka, O'Meara and Roughy, and unfortunately, they haven't turned out very well so far, even Marc Murphy has shown some spudiness this week…and could turn out to be a burnman.

    I guess what I'm saying is, reliable players are better than risky/speculative players.
    Reliable players, you can lock in, risky players, more often than not, need to be traded out again.

      D&B · 23/04/2017 at 05:57

      Thanks for your well founded advice Russty….in hindsight it has saved me from making what would have proven to be a very wasted trade

        Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 01:54

        You're welcome mate, glad you didn't go there 🙂

Holty · 21/04/2017 at 20:26

Great news, my wife and 2 day old boy are back from the hospital. Bad news is i only just got home and missed trading Williamson in for spp. I really need to get my priorities in order. Lol

Mitch · 21/04/2017 at 21:54

Which mid to trade in for JOM? Money not a issue
Have pendles Fyfe Ablett Kennedy beams danger

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 00:11

    Zac Merrett

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 00:12

    Or Sloane.

Henry · 21/04/2017 at 22:57

Take the 55 from SPP or gamble on Parfitt?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 00:11

    Gamble on Parfitt, could be the difference between a win and a loss.

Dickin cider · 22/04/2017 at 08:05

Sloane rocky bont Selwood zerrett for omeara this week? Leading rocky cause he looks fit and high ceiling if stays on park. Or swing McGrath to mids and get Adams
400k in bank

Borko · 22/04/2017 at 11:55

Thoughts on GHS as trade in for TT … will he avg 70-75 and stay in the best 22? His R12 bye is handy … would move him then. i

Rick · 22/04/2017 at 14:56

Should I bring in matera for roughy, bank $50k plus whatever he makes by the byes or stick with roughy who won't rise much more and save a trade? I have a supercoach headache and an hour to make my mind up

Matthew · 22/04/2017 at 15:09

Trade options for O'meara?? Or should I hold him for the moment.

    Pman · 22/04/2017 at 18:03

    Hold and trade to Balic if he's back in next week or another Bubble Boy unless you can afford to upgrade him to a Premo.

Adam · 26/04/2017 at 13:07

Taranto down to fisher and roughead up to Nick Reiwodlt
