Take SPP's score or field Parfitt??

    Sam · 22/04/2017 at 09:53

    SPP's score is locked in if you fielded him

    jockreynolds · 22/04/2017 at 09:53

    I'd go Parfitt I reckon old mate

      Sam · 22/04/2017 at 09:57

      I'm confused… maybe too many rum can last night, but isn't it locked in if he was fielded?

        jockreynolds · 22/04/2017 at 09:58

        You can deploy a bit of loophole action old son, is you had SPP as your emergency, you can swing on a non-player so that you get his score.

          Sam · 22/04/2017 at 10:04

          Of course, the rum haze is clearing…

          Jordy · 22/04/2017 at 10:11

          Hmmmm besides his 99 Parfitts high score is 52. What a conundrum. Worth the punt you rekon Jock?

        macca · 22/04/2017 at 09:58

        if you had the emergency on him on the bench then you can field a donut and get his score

      Sam · 22/04/2017 at 09:59

      Are you expecting much from EVW today jock? Trying to decide between him and Stewart

        jockreynolds · 22/04/2017 at 10:04

        He's a player mate – absolutely roll the dice on him over Tommy

          Steven · 22/04/2017 at 13:17

          which player for vc Stef Martin or Dahlhaus don't have the Bont

        Swansational · 22/04/2017 at 10:21

        Looks more like a dour defending type. Pretty low scoring SC wise.

    Jay · 22/04/2017 at 10:33

    Anything north of 50 from this motley bunch of rookies this year I'd be happy to lock in. It's a gamble that any of them will go big.

undypuncher · 22/04/2017 at 09:58

Ive all ready got parfit on feild so do i take ppeper or bowes from gc ?

INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 10:01

What a crap game last night. Thank god for SC

    Sam · 22/04/2017 at 10:08

    Not sure why the blues were given a prime time game to be honest

      INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 10:42

      Should have been Giants vs Swans

    LoganJosh7 · 24/04/2017 at 16:34

    did i miss the trick big time by not picking up GHS?

Zak · 22/04/2017 at 10:05

Still haven't finalised my trade.
Taranto to Yeo or Tex (as a pod)?

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 10:22

    Tex. Murphy showed last night that the fast starters eventually come back to earth. Tex should have a day out against GC this week

      Dukes · 22/04/2017 at 10:58

      Tex is also a fast starter tho

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:22

    The Suns have absolutely zero key defenders available this week. Tex will have the time of his life. He literally won't have an opponent

Davo · 22/04/2017 at 10:19

Worth trading Toranto to Balic even though he is not playing this week? Need the cash to upgrade Rough to Macrae. Cheers community.

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 10:25

    Macrae's price won't move heaps. Worth holding off and see if Balic returns next week before pulling the trigger

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:25

    You'd want some details on that hip injury. If he is even injured. Who know with Ross

ChasingFinals17 · 22/04/2017 at 10:19

Not sure who to make captain, Rockliff, Danger, Bont, Fyfe, Dahlhaus?

Marco_Polo94 · 22/04/2017 at 10:20

Was a little nervous about trading spp so early but pretty happy with the zerrett trade after last night!

Anthony · 22/04/2017 at 10:21

Thoughts on Rory laird for vc?

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:30

    He's been told to bring a blanket. Ball won't be down there. Have a look at the Suns backline

Swansational · 22/04/2017 at 10:24

Yeo could be this years Zerrett. Could.

    Captain Risky · 22/04/2017 at 12:30

    And Murphy and Higgins or maybe not…..

Cliffy · 22/04/2017 at 10:28

Have Strandica as my captain's loophole option for this Round so my VC has to come from one of the games today… Dahl or Stef Martin for VC guys? Can't go JPK since they play pretty much at a similar time as the Dockers do tonight.

    Raging Bulls · 22/04/2017 at 10:34

    Beams.

      Cliffy · 22/04/2017 at 10:41

      Yeah I have him but it might be tough for the Lions today and hence he may be kept honest today Beams.

    Moustachio · 22/04/2017 at 10:55

    Dahl maybe tagged? Stef worth a try maybe. Rucks typically didn't score well vs dogs in 2016. So far this year just Sandi cracking a low ton.

      Northernsoul74 · 22/04/2017 at 12:46

      That was when Roughead was playing. Plus they used 3rd man up a lot.

Josh · 22/04/2017 at 10:33

Take Houston's score of 73 or punt on Butler? Also, very pleased with young WilliamSON on field

    Darcy Kelly · 22/04/2017 at 10:51

    Take houstons m evrryday of the week.

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 10:52

    Take the 73

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 10:52

    Take it

Cliffy · 22/04/2017 at 10:35

Also, is it worth going Roughy to Yeo? Can't afford NRoo as my first choice in terms of upgrading Roughy. Already have Dahl and Macrae as my other premo forwards.

    jabba · 22/04/2017 at 10:58

    i'd hold and have a look at heeney

INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:13

Just had a look at Connor Spudadue's numbers from last season recalling he was rubbish. Well his number's slaughter Pickett. I therefore anoint Jarrod Pickett as the worst Rookie EVER! You can see why the Giants didn't put up a fight to keep him. Rubbish

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:13

    Think i'll shoot him

      gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 11:24

      Pickett 's about as handy as a hip pocket in a pair of undies !!!!

        Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 18:40

        That’s where the frangers go ! No need to scramble round trying to find your jeans on the floor.

      The Ranger · 22/04/2017 at 11:35

      Pick 5 wasn't he?
      Off to the shops this morning to get some Royal Purple. http://royalpurple.com.au/dev/other-special-produ

        gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 11:41

        That's Gold Ranger

        hedski · 22/04/2017 at 11:56

        Ha ha ha ha ha

        INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:59

        Pick 4 he was. Not sure what the Giants recruiting team was smoking when they picked him. And Ranger can you grab me a can of the Royal Purple for the firing range. Brilliant

          gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 12:17

          You may need a case of it before the seasons over INP..

            INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 12:43

            Believe me Gator I was stroking the shot gun watching Pickett last night

              gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 15:15

              Next week he's gone Pieman like a shot out of a cannon..Knowing my luck the fuse will be a dud..

      Steve1 · 22/04/2017 at 18:45

      Oh yeah, now we are talking. blind fold drawer at the ready 🙂

    Col · 22/04/2017 at 15:53

    Even ranked above Relton?

SirSamuel016 · 22/04/2017 at 11:30

Still contemplating a trade of Tom Mitchell to Tom Rockliff. Is it worth it? With Mitchell's BE of 138, and Rocky's of 87 or something, is it worth it?

    gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 11:37

    HOLD

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:41

    Ask yourself that question when you run out of trades. No

      SirSamuel016 · 22/04/2017 at 11:51

      Aight, holding.

    Nathan · 22/04/2017 at 14:07

    I pulled the trigger, I'm not missing rocky in beast mode

      Randomcliche2 · 23/04/2017 at 00:46

      He was in such a mode with 111 SC points early in the 4th I put the bloomin C on my dummy loophole, somehow went backwards (wasn't watching) didn't get it off in time…..guess we both missed 4th quarter beast mode….. (good trade though, provided you've only used 4 or so).

Saundo · 22/04/2017 at 11:31

Has anyone heard latest on Dusty?

Waz · 22/04/2017 at 11:34

Thinking of painting the fence this round..Down-trading Taranto to Berry to free up some cash..then upgrade Watson to Rocky? Berry is a risk, but at least he is playing.. worth the risk?

    Finnius · 22/04/2017 at 11:50

    Not Berry. Probably missed the boat on the rookies this round would hold off unless absolutely desperate.

Jackson · 22/04/2017 at 11:46

If it wasn't for Robbie Grays slight inconsistenties (which I believe is more is body letting him down) he would be the best player in the competition….No midfielder is as devastating forward and no forward is as good in the middle.
BTW how gorgeous is Lekdogs girlfriend? I've gotta grow me a mo it seems

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 12:24

    Look forward to him being a mid/fwd next year

Andrew · 22/04/2017 at 11:48

Is Hannan going to be named for Melbourne?

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 12:23

    Few whispers that JKH will come back in. Nothing concrete yet

INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 11:49

Ah Jock. In reference to the above picture of Lek & the ample chested super babe, well I can see why Lek calls his team Lekdog's puppies. And can you get me her phone number please? I'd love to add her to my collection

    gator59 · 22/04/2017 at 12:22

    I now know why Crouching calls it COCK KINGS!!

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 12:25

    And apologies Lek I've removed you from that picture & made her my screen saver

      Derek · 22/04/2017 at 14:50

      Is she real or a cardboard cut out?

        Westy · 22/04/2017 at 16:49

        Wife her, Lek.
        If that doesn't happen to be your lady, your lady must be awesome!

    Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 20:51

    With those flyers that is a harrassment claim waiting to happen.

Borko · 22/04/2017 at 11:58

Thoughts on GHS for TT? Will he avg 70-75 and stay in best 22? R12 bye is handy … would move him on then

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 12:05

    TT isn't playing Borko, Managed aka Dropped. Stevie J took his spot

    James · 22/04/2017 at 12:31

    I was having the same thought for O'Meara or TT for GHS? I guess O'Meara we really want to upgrade rather than downgrade.
    Taranto could come back in next week, no guarantee. Is Taranto $250k BE: 26 to H-Smith $234k BE: – 3 worth it?

      Borko · 22/04/2017 at 12:41

      It's a tricky one but i think it will be a good trade if GHS can hold down M7 at 70pts per week and get to $350k by R12 … few ifs there but don't think TT can do it … also, I have 28 trades left so kind of a final corrective for me

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 12:49

      NO. Go to a basement rookie like Fisher next week instead.

        INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 13:36

        Agree with Finnius

Daniel · 22/04/2017 at 12:00

Is JOM to Hanners worth it? Need to give Jaeger the flick and feel as though this is going to be the cheapest we are going to be able to get Hanners for.

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 12:04

    Tick from me

    Dnoyes · 22/04/2017 at 12:21

    Exactly what I've done

Hammer · 22/04/2017 at 12:06

Disappointed I didn't have the aggots to downgrade Hampton to Williamson. Pulled out at the death knock. Will he still be worth it next week despite missing out on his first $65k price rise? He looked impressive.

    Kev · 22/04/2017 at 12:20

    Reckon you've missed the boat unfortunately. He will be similar priced to Stewart so nothing to be gained from that. Hampton single digit b.e this week is still making money.

    He'll be up and down like all rookies, scored 45 last weekend. The ball spent a hell of a lot of time in Carlton's back half last night

    Tim · 22/04/2017 at 19:22

    Bet you're no longer too disappointed.

    Sana · 22/04/2017 at 21:15

    Hope you fielded him Hammer

Spanky · 22/04/2017 at 12:24

Corrective trade on Gunston. Suns Lynch or Macrae?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 12:48

    Macrae for shizzle if it works with your bye structure

      Spanky · 22/04/2017 at 13:22

      Yeah I looked at that after I posted – Macrae seems to work better.

      Cheers!

        Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:26

        Yeah it is all about the bye. I brought Tex in this week instead of Macrae because I already have 6 premos out in rd 11 – which is my limit for any round.

Luke · 22/04/2017 at 12:39

Do I trade Taranto to Bont or Rocky?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 12:45

    Bont I reckon

      Luke · 22/04/2017 at 12:56

      I'm thinking the same durability wise, but as we saw last week Rocky is also a viable VC option and can go massive in a losing side

        Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:01

        Bont for consistency – Rocky for ceiling. I would take Bont just because he is going to deliver.

    HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 11:09

    Rocky is looking the goods again this year

Satre · 22/04/2017 at 12:41

Is it 5pm that Melbourne/Richmond teams will be announced?

I'd like to loophole Hannan if he is not named.

Cheers

    Andrew · 22/04/2017 at 12:44

    Thinking the same thing mate, need to know rhis!

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 13:04

      Bloody frustrating

        Chopsticks · 22/04/2017 at 13:25

        5.30pm today according to Melbourne FC twitter

          INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 13:37

          You playing chopsticks?

            Chopsticks · 23/04/2017 at 01:27

            I'm playing – wouldn't miss the ANZAC Day Eve match! Dimma assisted with a myofascial groin release so I am good to go!

Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 12:47

So many people are bringing in the most expensive premiums such as Rocky and Sloane and Bont. Surely it would be a better idea to trade in fallen premos and other bargains to save cash. Dosh is so hard to come by we need to spend our kitties more efficiently.

    Luke · 22/04/2017 at 13:02

    what about if you already have the fallen premiums like Treloar, Hanners etc? why not bring in a set and forget player instead of another risk for 50k?

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:10

      Probably more like 100k and that is a lot. Not saying that it isn't right 100% of the time but there is no way you own JPK, Hanners, Treloar, Shaw, Simpson ect. and they are way better value for Dosh than 650k Sloane which will definitely drop in price.

        Luke · 22/04/2017 at 13:17

        Sloane is flying and Adelaide aren't going anywhere I don't think he drops below 600k, id rather finish will a full midfield of guns instead of discounted blokes in shit form who score 20 points less a week

          Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:20

          I disagree. I reckon Treloar and Sloane go at the same average for the rest of the year and finish up on the same price – with Treloar at 80k less. Look for bargains mate don't just splurge on the most expensive guy in the game atm.

            INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 13:38

            It's a real tough year for cash gen. Value must be sort after

            Luke · 22/04/2017 at 13:41

            I have Treloar, Hanners and Shaw already mate

              Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:52

              JPK? JJK? Zerrett? We need to be careful with our dosh. The 70k between Sloane and Merrett is more than the cash gen you will get from Jarrod Pickett. Be careful thats all I'm saying.

                Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 15:40

                *Twice the cash generation from Pickett

Sean's Mob · 22/04/2017 at 12:49

Who will Robinson tag the Bont or Dahl? Will help with choice of VC – Thanks

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 12:51

    Probably Bont – but no one knows. I would VC Dahl.

Tom · 22/04/2017 at 12:55

Do I take Ollie wines 122 or try out danger or Fyfe as captain

    Luke · 22/04/2017 at 13:08

    130+ rule for captains I reckon Tommy

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:23

      It is right in the middle range. But Danger's 90 shows that we should take the VC op more often than not. I would cop a 120 from any skipper every day of the week.

      Beezneez · 23/04/2017 at 12:41

      +1

        Beezneez · 23/04/2017 at 12:43

        Meant to be a reply to Luke i.e use 130 rule.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 13:10

    122

    Saundo · 22/04/2017 at 13:21

    Take it don't get greedy

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 13:07

5th week of vice captain shittery from me.
Treloar, Treloar, Buddy, Parker, Doch.
Might as well put it on Spud Pickett next week.

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 13:34

    Don't think I've taken a Vc score yet either Hedski. Giving Gary a turn today. He's due for a decent score

    Steeeve · 22/04/2017 at 13:44

    Shark move!

Josh · 22/04/2017 at 14:11

Have 300k in the bank, is it worth trading O'Meara straight up to Shuey/Zerrett/Adams or should I hold?

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 14:23

    Zerrett don't think, do.

    FCAbel · 22/04/2017 at 14:27

    Trade

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 15:38

    Pull the trigger

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 14:22

Hate to be a Lachie Hunter owner -8 at qtr time!

    DacZawson · 23/04/2017 at 12:02

    Lachie Hunter owners hardly exist

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 14:45

LIONS!! wow

Anth · 22/04/2017 at 14:57

Forgot to take barrett off field so my attempted Powell Pepper -> Parfitt loophole can't happen anymore!

If Parfitt tonnes up you can all thank me.

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 15:28

FanFooty site not loading live scores

TEM · 22/04/2017 at 15:33

i have williamson as emergency, should i replace hampton or otten with newman

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 15:38

    Hampton

      DacZawson · 23/04/2017 at 12:03

      hindsight is a powerful thing

        Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 12:07

        Yup… both tonned up though so wouldn't be disappointed – an 80 odd from a rookie is a gun score

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 15:53

It's such a rare case so I need to share this.

5 players in my team for Dogs vs Lions 3 qtr time

Dahl 93 JJ 92 Macrae 85
Beams 84 Martin 79

Alwx · 22/04/2017 at 15:54

I thinks Beams as my VC is gonna give me a very awkward score?!

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 15:57

    Yup 110 probably

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 16:36

    105 odd – would take a punt on your skip

cashcows · 22/04/2017 at 16:23

I'm probably taking Dahl's VC score. 120~ atm with a few mins to play. Hope he stays or gets scaled up a little.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 16:35

    Yeah I would take it

jpb · 22/04/2017 at 16:33

Take Zorko's 124 as VC or risk Dangerfield ?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 16:35

    Take it

      DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 16:40

      120 is bench Mark this round I am feeling

        jpb · 22/04/2017 at 19:17

        I have gone to Fyfe !

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 16:37

#when your cash league opponent has the captain on Bont…..and the VC on Danger.

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 16:40

    Ummmm fe horget to twap shem round

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 16:51

      Na just clueless I think.

        INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 16:54

        Damn. Wish I was playing him

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 17:13

      Ha ha, didn't even see what you'd done there Dave, I'm possibly Dyslexic.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 17:48

    Mark Robinson has the same thing

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 22:19

      Dyslexia?

Derek · 22/04/2017 at 16:41

Wow…… Berry was poor. Not sure he even made his BE. Looks like another donut rookie next week.

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 16:42

    He will get dropped

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 16:55

    His BE was 21 & he scored 14. Wow!

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 17:14

    Take it you won't loop his points Derek?

      Derek · 22/04/2017 at 18:40

      Pickett and Berry can stay on the bench this week and let….. gulp……. Stewart and Parfitt do the scoring. Oh my.

        hedski · 22/04/2017 at 18:55

        I'm gonna play Parfitt over Nemos 51.
        Will take Hampton over Stewart.

Touk tuk · 22/04/2017 at 16:46

Hope hampton goes big today… 2 goals already….

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 16:55

    Hope Newman is not a late call up.

Westy · 22/04/2017 at 16:50

Hampton has started well.

Mikey Moose · 22/04/2017 at 16:54

Have a bit of a swag to spend. Could do:
1. JOM to JJK (moves Hannan off the field). Helps with bye round (12)
2. JOM to Hanners/Zerrett
Advice?

    Mikey Moose · 22/04/2017 at 17:12

    Now Hannan is out, might do 1. to avoid the doughnut.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 17:41

    probs one if it works with your bye AND avoids a doughnut

DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 16:56

Swallow is gone next week. Clearly something is wrong with him

Ben · 22/04/2017 at 17:00

Is swallow playing midfield?

Sully321 · 22/04/2017 at 17:03

take dahlhaus' 120 or go with Danger as C

    DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 17:03

    I am taking it

    Conan_the_Westy · 22/04/2017 at 17:13

    120 in the hand…

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:16

      Leks Puppies in the bush…..

    Dutch · 22/04/2017 at 18:01

    I'll be taking it I think

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 17:08

Matt Crouch is back!

INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 17:11

Matt Crouch 42 at 1/4 time. Must have finally been to kicking lessons at the bungalow! Jock will be pleased

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 17:39

    lol everyone who was bagging Jock's call during the week and who traded him out

      INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 17:42

      79 at HT. Punishing the haters! Jock will be sporting a sizeable erection right now

        Timmy · 22/04/2017 at 17:43

        It would be ever so pointy

Sully321 · 22/04/2017 at 17:22

EVW or stewart on the field?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 17:38

    EVW

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 18:57

    Stewart could have a few in the bank, haven't seen V-Dub yet.

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2017 at 17:30

Hope no one bought into the Matera hype – once a spud, always a spud

    INPieman · 22/04/2017 at 17:44

    21 at HT. Pretty much what I was expecting. Matera Murphy & Yeo heavily bought into. Just need Yeo to shit the bed for the trifecta

    Derek · 22/04/2017 at 18:38

    I'm sure no-one did.

      Matze · 22/04/2017 at 21:42

      A bloke I'm playing bought him in…poor sod

Frankstonphil · 22/04/2017 at 17:34

Fyfe, JPK or Danger for C?

Boltons Blues · 22/04/2017 at 18:07

Thankfully welcomed Sloane to my team this week, welcomed him with open arms, what a superstar!

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 18:09

Fiorini looks like a good trade in….

    Beezneez · 23/04/2017 at 12:47

    Not.

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 13:27

      Was dripping sarcasm Beez.

Mikey Moose · 22/04/2017 at 18:12

Final Swans named – no Newman. Time to loophole Hampton-Stewart.

    Dogs · 22/04/2017 at 18:27

    Newman had 31 touches in the magoos today, good effort to get back in next week

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:36

      Hopefully. Was counting on him to get to 400k!

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2017 at 18:14

Higgins out

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:37

    lol #burnman

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 18:14

Guy on fanfooty saying Higgins is late out

Jeff · 22/04/2017 at 18:16

Burnman Higgins out tonight.
Ouch.
Horvat in.

Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:17

Do you get SC points for Free kicks for?

    Van djik · 22/04/2017 at 23:43

    Yep. +4 points

    Moustachio · 22/04/2017 at 23:44

    Yes, +5 I think

anthonyc12 · 22/04/2017 at 18:23

Mitch Hannan and Shaun Higgins out… hello a 0 in the forward line.

I have Parfitt in the mid but can't get him forward… is it worth trading Hannan out to Balic so I can move Parfitt forward and avoid a 0?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:36

    Maybe – really your call and depends on how many trades you have left. If you have >27 I would because Hannan's BE is relatively high anyway. If you have less than that I would probably cop the zero – as we have no idea about Balic's status injury wise at the moment. Doughnut's do suck though so I wouldn't blame you if you did trade him. My mind says to do the above thing but I personally would pull the trigger!

      BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2017 at 19:22

      Hannan has a BE of 14.

        Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:26

        I reckon 14 is relatively high

SHAUN HIGGINS · 22/04/2017 at 18:31

I got ya's again!

    Tibor · 22/04/2017 at 22:41

    You took it easy on 'em Shaun.

    Based on your previous years efforts I thought you would have had two more spud scores before being injured.

    The late late withdrawal was a nice touch though….. well done…

    Randomcliche2 · 23/04/2017 at 00:57

    Now I get SPP's score you pr!ck. Well played.

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 18:34

Sloane and M.Crouch on track for 135+
Laird another ton and is shaping up as a top 2 defender

Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 18:34

Gambled on Fiorini as a cash generator after reading o his gun background, piggy status in neafl and score of 89 last week.

Gee working well. 2 kicks 4 handballs to 3/4 time.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:49

    He is on 16 SC…

      Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 20:46

      Surely tagging someone?

Luke · 22/04/2017 at 18:35

Is Higgins to JPK or Selwood worth it? He has made some cash, while JPK has gone down a bit

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:48

    Yeah probably tbh

    redherringfc · 22/04/2017 at 18:55

    higgins to ANYONE is worth it.

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:00

    Throw him back on the fire where he belongs.

uDonkey · 22/04/2017 at 18:37

Laird, Crouch, Witts, Hampton and Otten would be awesome if they all ton up.

    uDonkey · 22/04/2017 at 19:11

    Well

    Laird 122
    M Crouch 124
    Hampton 107
    Otten 99
    Witts 91

    Before scaling
    Awesome start this week.

Cliffy · 22/04/2017 at 18:37

Hey quick two questions:

1. Take SPP's 50 odd score or roll with Parfitt at M8?

2. Take Dahl'a 120 for the C score this week or risk it on Danger?

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 18:42

    parfitt and take the 120 VC loop

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:45

      Agree.

Cliffy · 22/04/2017 at 18:39

*Dahl's

DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 18:39

Should I be holding Higgins or moving him onto someone like Roo. Anyone know why he was a late out?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:47

    Well to be honest I would bring in Roo. Will definitely finish a top 6 forward and Higgins is the definition of burnman. If you started with him I would definitely trade but if you brought him in the last couple of weeks you probably have to stick with him as you made a conscious decision to pick him as a top 8 forward.

      DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 18:53

      I started with Higgins. If I want i can even use dpp to get a midfielder which costs less than 633k. Am a bit worried with trades though as i have used 4 already.

        Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:57

        Probably OK (I have used 7….). I would Get Roo because he won't ever be much cheaper and is the best forward in the comp (supercoachwise along with Dahl) by an absolute landslide. You could also get Zach Merrett if you wanted to.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:48

    He is out because he likes seeing the pain of supercoachers

    redherringfc · 22/04/2017 at 19:02

    he's a late out because so many people got excited about his supercoach form. He'll be back next week, score 50 in a quarter, to get you excited again, and then he'll bust a poopoo valve ( what ever that is). How many times must this man burn you (me) before you (me) learn.

      redherringfc · 22/04/2017 at 19:02

      about 8 times, i believe

        DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 19:07

        Do you have him, and if so are you trading him?

    CJ84 · 23/04/2017 at 13:39

    Mate i started with higgins. Has got hamstring tightness so they left him out. He has looked great so far, had 2 tough opponents where he wasnt getting on the end of the pill. Has GC next week. Keep the faith mate, hold

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 18:45

Who'd of thunk Higgins would burn anyone???

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:52

    Shocker of the century!….so glad I didn't pick that definition of a burnman.

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 09:21

    Hits head with palm…repeat after me …I am an idiot, I am an idiot

Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 18:50

Grundy owners must be sweating. Cox is in and hes a crap forward. Reckon Cox will be playing 50% as a ruck at least with Grundy up forward.

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 18:53

    Agree that Cox could take some pts away by sharing 20-25% ruck time
    Grundy in the fwd line makes no sense, Howe should have been playing there since round 1.
    Instead looks pretty playing +1 in defence

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 18:56

      I bloody hope Howe doesn't go forward.

        hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:02

        Yep, been great pickup down back, ave over 100 so far.

          Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:04

          He's my POD and very happy about it. Always a risk that Pies get desperate and swing him forward – but he is dominating as a loose man and I think that is the way Bucks wants to play out of defence so he should be safe

            hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:11

            Picked him over Adams, he'll need to come in soon tho.

Brandon · 22/04/2017 at 19:00

Taranto to jpk? Means I avoid Bowes putrid 40 odd he's put up haha leaves me with 24 trades though

    Brandon · 22/04/2017 at 19:03

    Or even trade hannan, have a healthy 450k in bank

      hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:09

      Slaughter Hannan ASAP with that cash B.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:05

    If you have that much cash in the bank I would definitely be spending it now rather than later. Good trade in my opinion – one step closer to getting full premo. Maybe look at Zach Merrett as a POD at a similar price – I reckon they will average the same for the rest of the year and zerrett is only at 4% ownership.

      Brandon · 22/04/2017 at 19:18

      Thanks fellas, never really looked at zerret in mid but I like it! Gonna pull the trigger

Mitch · 22/04/2017 at 19:05

Is parsons likely to retain his spot in the cats side after suspension?

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:08

    I think so Mitch, got some mongrel.

      Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:28

      Don't trade him in yet though..

hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:07

Nice to see you've joined me on 5 VC shitters Pie.

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 07:42

    Not having any luck with it this year Hedski. Woukd have gone Fyfe but didn't have a Hannan type for the loop

Don · 22/04/2017 at 19:08

Who should I bring in for Higgins? Roo (be 75) or Adams via dpp (be 92)

    Top hawk · 22/04/2017 at 19:18

    Adams. Roo can wait. Welcome!

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 19:22

    Rooey

Daniel · 22/04/2017 at 19:09

Do I take Lairds score as my vc this week or roll the dice with fyfe, danger or treloar?

    Finnius · 22/04/2017 at 19:21

    Take it.

Nuggety · 22/04/2017 at 19:12

Witts score = Abletts score. Glad I didnt pick Gaz but kinda wish I picked Witts… wow.

Ken · 22/04/2017 at 19:14

Should I trade out JOM or Taranto?

    Finnius · 22/04/2017 at 19:21

    Well I did both…

Top hawk · 22/04/2017 at 19:17

Coaches who traded in Brandon Matera this week are mentally retarded. Probably a bit harsh, but gee wiz, if I ever saw a SC trap, then this was it. What a turd effort that was.

    Stav · 22/04/2017 at 21:06

    And to bring him in against the Crows who were always going to spank them and have Luke Brown who is a great small lock down defender.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:54

    Points chasers, without any experience or general intelligence might've chosen him. Glad I didn't, happy to still have 28 trades.

      Willow · 23/04/2017 at 11:08

      Well I brought him in and I'm ranked 300th. So my thought process was his price rise and the lack of cash generation through our rookies, I actually think trading Pickett to another spud rookie is a worse move….. Matera was always going to spud it up this week against the crows, but that doesn't matter, conversely with point chasers comes people who get scared off by one dud score, lol I find it laughable that people come on here and bring moves like matera down in a year full of frought and danger.. Let me ask you was bringing in a guy like Newman the right call, with the likes of Heeney McVeigh Rohan and Rampe still to come back only time will tell. Matera will bounce back and you my flog will eat your words…. I say anyone who is quick to judge is even more retared then the guys that brought him in, Heath Shaw will attest to that.

        Willow · 23/04/2017 at 11:31

        And further more, even with Murphy and Matera throwing turds left right and centre my projected score is 2274 with GHS predicted to get 60 and Trelor predicted to get 100 the man is due to get a Huge score and with Essendon on the horizon Anzac day could very well be the day you my mentally retarded friend (TopHawk) is the day you mourn the fall of yet another Rank or should I say Wank in your case!!!

          Plakka · 23/04/2017 at 22:46

          Seconded. Did the same trade expecting a low score this week but cash gen. Started the season with some under valued low mid price players in mids and fwds due to lack of decent options. It's working ok at the moment for cash gen and better than just going spud rooks. Some lucky punts but you got to do something to be different. Murphy was probably due but I'll also point out he's been scoring well in a losing side, and a decent pre season and no injuries mean he may do ok over the duration, and if not he's still pulled over 120k increase, more than some rooks. I have to admit though i was lured into starting higgins, yep, but twas him who made way for matera this week so I'm pretty good with that actually. And i can say I'll never pick him again. This year.

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 12:33

    You've offended Tom Papley TH…

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2017 at 19:23

Otten, Hampton and Laird – Thank you very much! Who else has all 3?

    Joshua · 22/04/2017 at 19:28

    Yep, and witts

      Captain Risky · 22/04/2017 at 19:48

      Same, pretty happy with that game.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:28

    I had them and witts and Tex – Pretty happy

    tophawk · 22/04/2017 at 19:38

    All three and all on field. Happy days!!

    Tommo09 · 22/04/2017 at 19:41

    All on field as well as Lynch (GC)

    Neverweaken · 22/04/2017 at 19:49

    Oh yes. Looped Hampton with Newman so very happy.

    Stupid Coach · 22/04/2017 at 22:39

    Yes, I had all three on the field. Small consolation for deciding to bring in Fiorini (18 points WTF!!!!!) In place of JOM.

      Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:58

      Wow dude, Fiorini is like the Leprechaun with the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow…a fairy tale, hope you can learn from your decision.
      Take it easy from here, and no more crazy picks, stick with guys who will improve your team, from a proven track record….good luck 🙂

    Tibor · 22/04/2017 at 22:44

    Yeah and the boy Sloane too he goes ok

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 09:23

    Yes. I wonder how many traded Hampton this week. Lol.

DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 19:33

Rooey, Selwood or Zerret? Thinking Zerret as Selwood has burnt me every time I have picked him.

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 19:35

    Zerrett POD

    hedski · 22/04/2017 at 20:57

    Jelwood.

    Rambos_Radish · 24/04/2017 at 12:22

    When has Selwood ever burnt anyone?

The Buttonsticher · 22/04/2017 at 19:36

+sloane and Witts and M.Crouch(won't hear a bad word about him, cough cough)

Captain Risky · 22/04/2017 at 19:45

I bought in Williamson (81) & Macrae(121) this week. Some weeks you just get lucky! Also pleased with the selections I didn't make- a few I considered really spudded it up.

And apologies to everyone who has the Bont, I VC'd him this week, that made it 5 dud ones for me.

    Browncow · 22/04/2017 at 23:42

    Great trade Captain Risky. Captain Sensible this week.

      Captain Risky · 23/04/2017 at 13:42

      Yes, Fiorini or Matera would have left nasty stains this week! Will not miss Omeara and Taranto.

Neverweaken · 22/04/2017 at 19:49

Hello Hannebury next week.

    Bells E Bubb · 23/04/2017 at 12:39

DefyingMadness · 22/04/2017 at 19:50

Feels good to have gotten rid of Higgins. Last time I ever pick him again. Watch him come out and get 150 next week

    Tibor · 22/04/2017 at 22:49

    How many times have you said never again with this muppet.

    This bloke is as hard as a blamange

    He is the king of sucking coaches in

    They need to take his name off the computer and have a rule that you can only have him if you are a blood relative. They won't pick him because they know better

Adrian · 22/04/2017 at 20:13

ok so please form an orderly line and slap me…..just before the crows game l though laird, otten and Hampton to many Adelaide players on the field for my team,…yep that's how deep my logic runs…so l benched Hampton (cough) for Stewart……so Stewart you better bloody kick arse tomorrow. Shoiuldn't complain at least its cash generation.

Ok, l'm ready start slapping me.

    DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 20:19

    no one thought Hampton would come close to a ton but vs Stewart Hampton was the no brainer

      Adrian · 22/04/2017 at 20:31

      I know your so right, damn stupid logic on my behalf.

tophawk · 22/04/2017 at 20:37

Hanners might not have bottomed out just yet. I reckon he will struggle from here to get to his BE of 109. Unsighted in the second quarter.

    Finnius · 22/04/2017 at 20:41

    Along with the rest of the swans team

    Bells E Bubb · 22/04/2017 at 20:42

    Showin no reasons to bring him in though so its academic really.

    Traded him in this week. Pretty happy, will only get better from here.

      Swans2012 · 23/04/2017 at 11:46

      Me too, jom to hanners = win

    Moustachio · 22/04/2017 at 23:39

    Would grab him next rd if opportunity presents

    Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 11:57

    I might wait one more week to see how he plays against Carlton.

DavidSA · 22/04/2017 at 20:55

Sandilands is a clanger king regarding F/A

12 F/A currently this season

Neverweaken · 22/04/2017 at 20:56

Sandi has to stop giving away frees. May get upgraded before Witts.

    Captain Risky · 22/04/2017 at 22:23

    Would have been huge if he didn't give away so many frees..Came back strongly, looked likely for a while to be out for Spencer in my team next week but might have redeemed himself.

    Hubba · 22/04/2017 at 23:04

    Looking back… he tonned up so cant complain. He seagulled some chips while gold was off getting taped up

Murray · 22/04/2017 at 21:31

Take Dhalhaus's 120 as VC or will danger outscore him?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:01

    I think you have to set a rule for yourself, 120-130, whatever it is, stick to it, Danger could score 175 or 85, 120 guarantees you 240, so, go with your gut feeling, Richo is a savvy coach, if Danger's having too much influence, he could assign a tagger to shut him down, just speculation but you wouldn't have to worry about all the what ifs if you take the 120.

      Murray · 22/04/2017 at 22:19

      I think l will bank the 240, thanks russty

        Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:29

        Hope it works out for you Murray 🙂

    Northerner · 22/04/2017 at 22:36

    I've locked in Dahl as well. Danger carries injury through the week. 120 is solid. Don't get greedy!

      Murray · 22/04/2017 at 22:48

      Thanks northerner

      Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:48

      I VC'd the Bont unfortunately so will have to depend on Danger going big, hope he can post something decent.

    Tom Bell was dropped · 23/04/2017 at 14:12

    Reckon it all depends on your league matchup (if league is your focus). Whether you need to open up pods (take dahl) or shut them down (go with danger).

Michael · 22/04/2017 at 21:32

Shaw gonna be really cheap to pick off soon

Tommo09 · 22/04/2017 at 21:46

I hate being a Swans fan

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:07

    Yeah , they're sucking it bigtime this year, after a great start too….kind of like the Hawks, fallen from grace into the spud zone.

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 09:24

    Welcome to many years as a Saints fan

    Swans2012 · 23/04/2017 at 11:16

    I haven't given up hope yet but close……..it's strange though isn't it, nothing wildly significant has changed yet we are going shithouse…..I think we win our next 3-4 though anyway so fingers crossed things change

      Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 11:43

      We could be 5-5 going into the bye
      Carlton, Brisbane, North, Saints, Hawks coming up

    VayJiney26 · 25/04/2017 at 23:28

    I watch Swans games specifically for Zak Jones, wish he was playing alongside his brother at the Dees.

JDP · 22/04/2017 at 22:00

Serious question – WTF is going on with Goldstein???

    Randomcliche2 · 23/04/2017 at 01:13

    Broken. Just look at all that return to sender tape around his knee. Had an extra lower leg strain in 4th quarter. The preseason review on him is coming to fruition. It's a Mummy/Martin year by the looks.

Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:05

Some kind of injury where he had to be helped off the field….TRADE!

    Moustachio · 22/04/2017 at 23:37

    He came back in for last couple mins

tophawk · 22/04/2017 at 22:05

Goldy injured. WOW

    Captain Risky · 22/04/2017 at 22:19

    Beauty, Puess back next week, swans lost, Newman back….

      INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 07:45

      Yes please bring back Preuss & Newman!

        neil.Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 09:36

        yep both

Shake n bake · 22/04/2017 at 22:08

Out for dinner and just hearing Higgins is out. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me this year. Swallow was a late out couple of weeks ago when l was out that nite aswell. No one to blame but cant do much when there named then dont play. Thats 2 donuts l could have avoided. I give up. Just The

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:11

    That'll teach you for going out and having a life, most of us just sit at home and stare at the screen all weekend lol

      Shake n bake · 22/04/2017 at 22:31

      Like l said nobody else to blame but myself but there is not to many sat nights im home!

        hedski · 22/04/2017 at 22:41

        Can't comment here for some reason

          hedski · 22/04/2017 at 22:42

          Oh OK. all good now administrator?

            Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:50

            So what were you gonna say before the communist censorship Hedski?

              hedski · 23/04/2017 at 00:05

              Wow again

              hedski · 23/04/2017 at 00:09

              Try again " duck into the TOILET and check ya phone" Yeah yeah

    Tibor · 22/04/2017 at 22:53

    Come on shakin,, You were warned about Higgins I reckon. You got off lightly usually a ew extra spud scores to drive the price into the crapper but the late withdrawal was a nice touch

    Daniel · 22/04/2017 at 23:41

    I'm in Canada so I have that happen every year (if not every week).
    I preferred it when lockouts didn't last all weekend.

    Scotty_Steele · 23/04/2017 at 01:50

    Swallow may as well have been out too

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 09:25

    Tell us when you are going out for dinner. Might be a good barometer for the SC Curse.

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 09:40

    Definetly a burnman Shake one golden opportunity for the Demons Delight to beat you mate that's rare

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 11:19

    Just make sure your mobile is fully charged before you leave home. When you are at the bar or cafe etc, just excuse yourself, gotta go to the loo, then just check the AFL website for any late changes. If you have a problem, quickly go to the Supercoach site, make the adjustments and back to the party. Takes less than 3 minutes. In any case, it is bad luck, because I was distracted on a family outing as well yesterday and the same could have happened to me with D swallow. I feared he also could have been a late out with that dicey ankle. When I finally checked, I was relieved he had started. Dont give up though Shake, its a long long season. Cheers mate.

    PS This will probably cheer you up mate. I listened to Derek and traded in Jarrod Berry for Taranto yesterday. WHAT AN IDIOT!!!! I guess the only positive is that I now have 300 K in the kitty, can trade out Hibberd next week (For Balic, Fisher, etc) and then look for a super premo upgrade for Swallow. Berry will then become my loophole slave in place of Hibberd between my backline and midfield as Berry will get the ar-se after his 14 yesterday. LOL

      Shake n bake · 23/04/2017 at 12:36

      Funny enough just heard Scotts interview and he said he knew 2 days b4 the game and made the call Higgins wasn't going to play…awesome! P.s phone stays firmly in the misses bag when were out but might have to get my hand in there and try the loo trick!!

        Swans2012 · 23/04/2017 at 13:54

        Is that a "leave Supercoach at home" type in the bag shake? Why can't they just understand the importance of knowing the final teams!!!

    Bazza · 23/04/2017 at 12:37

    That is why Dreamteam is a better game than SC because DT is set and forget and one can have a life unlike so many out there who watch/listen to all /most games.

    Beezneez · 23/04/2017 at 12:54

    Take your phone with you and hope you're among understanding friends (or go to the toilet to check late outs).

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/04/2017 at 13:43

    Download the app footy alerts.
    Sends you a notification as soon.as a late out is announced or when final teams announced.
    It is gold.
    On more than one occasion come in very handy and me and u don't have to go to a website to check the do the work for u and let you know teams and late outs.

      Beezneez · 23/04/2017 at 16:45

      Good thinking.

Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 22:13

Freoooooooooooooooo !!! woooohoooo, North Melbourne really suck hahahha

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 07:46

    North just keep finding a way to lose close games

Neverweaken · 22/04/2017 at 22:22

Sandi came good. Took the risk on Fyfe for captain. And Zac Jones top scored for Sydney. Starts to make up for Murphy last night

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2017 at 22:22

57 point last qtr for Sandi pre scaling. Fyfe as VC thanks very much.

    uDonkey · 22/04/2017 at 22:34

    Yes! Thank you very much switched Fyfe to C on the last minute before the bounch.

Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 22:33

Selwood or Danger skip?

    Joshua · 22/04/2017 at 23:06

    Dangerwood

    Hubba · 22/04/2017 at 23:34

    Danger

Boltons Blues · 22/04/2017 at 22:38

What a day for SuperCoach today was, there will be some massive scores posted this week
Hampton, Otten, Dahl, Macrae, Fyfe, Sandi and Sloane all playing out of their skin today!

    Ben · 22/04/2017 at 22:58

    Only poor performance was swallow

      Boltons Blues · 22/04/2017 at 23:10

      Mine was JPK, 93 is far from the worst score

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 23:27

    What are you on track for?

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 00:00

    There is always tomorrow

    Northerner · 23/04/2017 at 05:41

    Thanks. You've now put the mozz on Sunday for all of us!

    Dean · 23/04/2017 at 19:58

    I had all those on field such as Hampton, Otten, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Fyfe, Sandiballs Sloan and my captain was Danger and after 16 played im scoring 1786 – Unfortunately the BONT & Swallow let me down.

    ian · 24/04/2017 at 14:07

    Had five of them but after murphy's turds,as v, put c on Bont 🙁

Thomas · 22/04/2017 at 22:46

Who wins?
My side: Danger VC, Parfitt, WHE, Pendles C (pending Danger score)

Opposition: Danger C, Parfitt, Nank + 95 pts

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 22:50

    Can't split it.

      Ben · 22/04/2017 at 22:56

      Close but just him could go either way though

Stupid Coach · 22/04/2017 at 22:55

Currently in the corner in the foetal position trying to wipe away the stench of failure (I keep scrubbing and it won't go away) after one of worst trade decisions ever made – bringing in Fiorini for JOM. Murphy may have stained his underpants but Fiorini managed to cover every square inch of his. May need to buy some royal purple and use it on Fiorini before using it on myself.

Don't even know whether to take Dahl as C or stick with Danger and hope last week was an aberration.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 23:05

    The way your week is panning out, I would advise taking Dahlhaus's score, and take the risk of it getting any worse out of the equation.

      Moustachio · 22/04/2017 at 23:33

      Danger 200…

      Stupid Coach · 23/04/2017 at 08:00

      Thanks Rustty. Found out an hour later that Hannan was dropped and now have to cop a zero in the fwd line as my emergencies are Eddy and Cameron who both didn't play. My opponent has the C on Pendles which is why I was thinking of leaving Danger as C as both have the potential to go big. Could take Dahl and use Hannan as my loophole.

    Derek · 22/04/2017 at 23:07

    So you don't have Berry I guess

    Hubba · 22/04/2017 at 23:08

    Who told you to pick fiorini? Dude i feel bad for you. Stick with dahl.

      Stupid Coach · 23/04/2017 at 08:05

      Thanks Hubba. Didn't have enough cash to upgrade JOM to anyone decent except Yeo (had him last year and he was inconsistent) and stumbled across him when looking for a downgrade option. Was averaging 86 and had a BE of -6. At least he will generate some cash but not sure about his JS after that performance.

    Bells E Bubb · 23/04/2017 at 12:21

    Yeah I got him in too. Was a risky yet rational choice. We could not see that happening. Was he bothered by injury, tagging? The guy knows how to find the footy so must be a reason for that.
    BE must gone from – whatever to 80 in one game! Grrrr

      jpb · 23/04/2017 at 17:16

      I picked Fiorini as well , dropped TT for him . He will bounce back ……… we hope

uDonkey · 22/04/2017 at 22:57

Pretty rspt with the score so far 14/1517 Fyfe (C) with
Danger, Treloar, JJK, Priddis(should go big with mitchell out this week), The Tank, WHE, Parfitt and Butler. Hoping to get high 2200

    Dean · 23/04/2017 at 20:07

    So that puts you on 1861/18 played with Treloar, Tank, WHE & Butler to go right?

    I'm on 1786/16 played with Danger Captain and got Pendles, Heppel, Nank, WHE, Butler & McGrath to play so im hoping to score close to 2300

      SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 19:23

      Looking good there Dean and yes I'm on 1861/18 with those players you mentioned.

Adrian · 22/04/2017 at 23:06

fingers crossed yeo goes big this week, then next week paint the fence, Yeo down to Fisher, leaves me with 26 trades then swallow upto a cold mars bar, or belly buitton fluff….l don't care l'll trade him for a paper clip.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2017 at 23:08

    If Yeo goes big again this week, why would you trade him out? he could be a keeper if that's the case…unless you have multiple problems to fix I guess?

    Dean · 23/04/2017 at 20:09

    Ya don't have to worry about Yeo going big coz Yeo = Yo-Yo

Hubba · 22/04/2017 at 23:18

Who wins. Rough+jjk+oliver+butler+12 vs roo+yeo+phillips+heppell…….. roo has 135 predicted….. has anyone ever done a statistical analysis on how accurate the sc forecasts are. Maybe amathematician has done some kind of probability distribution or something? Do sc advertise an accuracy on SC gold?

    Finnius123 · 22/04/2017 at 23:26

    I actually think their predictions are pretty accurate – purely from experience more than anything else. Apart from a guy spudding it or killing it – they make the best possible prediction out of the info they have

Kyle · 22/04/2017 at 23:48

Anyone else really considering callan ward? I could straight swap SPP to ward this coming week and he looks like he is starting to reach some good form.

    Kyle · 22/04/2017 at 23:53

    Or i could wait another week or 2 till he is completely bottomed out. Definately strongly considering the guy

      BigBoyBananana · 22/04/2017 at 23:58

      You get the good and the bad with Ward, expect scores of 130+ every now and then but also be ready to take those mid 80 to 90's scores. The thing that bothers me with Cal Ward is the fact that he is in a midfield with no Coniglio etc yet only just scraping 2 100 scores. Personally, it's a no from me, not always the safe option to jump on a fallen 'premium'

        davo · 23/04/2017 at 08:00

        Not good enough for one of the 8 midfield spots really

          Tibor · 23/04/2017 at 09:51

          When considering anything GWS always factor in their preferred status in the AFL. They will always do just a little better with the umps, with travel demand, with the drawer with MRP.

          The down side is their talent pool. This more effects rookie chances and job security and even on ball opportunities. Ward is top of the tree so if he stays fit and healthy he should be a great pick up.

BigBoyBananana · 22/04/2017 at 23:50

Very interesting to see Mitch Hannan not end up playing in the 2s but the other 2 emergencies did. Would be very careful if you are loopholing with him, however, if you're like me with Pickett as emergency and Hannan on field, keep praying and hope that someone from Melbourne twists an ankle when getting off the team bus

    Steeeve · 23/04/2017 at 13:23

    If he's a late i will have to quickly take the C off him and choose to put it on either Adams or (gulp) Treloar

      BigBoyBananana · 23/04/2017 at 22:26

      Well, Melbourne has moved him from 3rd emergency to 1st now, not sure if that's a mandatory thing or not but still very interesting. I personally would love for him to get named because there's no way I want to take that measly 28 from Pickett

Iamme · 23/04/2017 at 00:07

1367 /14 with Danger, Steele, Tmitch, Roughy, Nank, T.Adams, WHE and Treloar (capt)….. I'm backing Treloar to have a blinder and win the Anzac medal on Tuesday.He's due to put a big game together, high risk for high reward, as they say.

    Dogs · 23/04/2017 at 00:18

    1337/13 got danger, selwood, pendles, tmitch, yeo, nank, butler, parfitt and Stewart to come. Not expecting much for the Geelong rookies, projected for around 2260

      Dean · 23/04/2017 at 20:19

      not a bad score thus for your on 1918 with 19 played with a bit of luck you'll score around 2200 however if danger was your C then you'll score between 2300 to 2350

        Dogs · 23/04/2017 at 22:54

        Yep, had the c on danger. Sitting on 2033 now with nank, butler and pendles to play.

    Tibor · 23/04/2017 at 09:57

    Collingwood supporter I presume. What is it with Collingwood supporters and Treloar. Supercoach logic and assessment seems to be replaced by cheer squad style judgement with this bloke.

    He is clearly a very good player but maybe it's time to take a breath, he's not in the same league as danger Fyfe Bont JPK and Zak Merrett has him covered too?

      Tim · 23/04/2017 at 11:36

      No one is in Danger's league and few are in Fyfe's league at his best. Cracking point Tibor. Keep hatin'.

      Iamme · 23/04/2017 at 13:41

      You got to take a risk in this game from time to time,I put the VC on Rocky last week and he came good, the week prior went Tmich over Danger but missed out there…..my point being if you don't take chances, then how will you ever separate from the pack? currently sitting at 2598.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/04/2017 at 20:32

        Why wouldn't u go Adams?
        He had the runs on n the board

        WhyLIE · 23/04/2017 at 20:57

        What you say is very true lamme, just follow your gut mate and you just never know however no idea how your projection of 2598 came about, you are talking some serious shit there buddy.

        You are now on 1761 with 18 played – So going by projected scores with your remaining FOUR players, with their projected scores Nank 106, WHE 95, Adams 121 & Treloar 100 this would mean your projected score would TOTAL 2283 which sounds a lot more like it.

        When you wrote "Currently sitting at 2598" – That was just STUPID because your other 4 players who had yet to play – Were predicted to score: Danger 116, Steele 81, Tmitch 89 & Roughy 93 so in total those 4 players predicted score = 379
        Yet those 4 players today scored more then their projected score of 379 in fact the combined 4 scored 394
        If you are going to list your current score which you did along with the players you had remaining to play in round 5 then at least if you want to LIE about what your "currently sitting on" then at least make your lie sound half believable FFS.

        Your comment of "Currently sitting at 2598" was just beyond ABSURD!!!

          hedski · 23/04/2017 at 21:09

          Maybe it was 1598? Fat fingers will do that.

            Dean · 23/04/2017 at 22:18

            I thought that at first until I re-read his initial comment which stated:
            "1367 /14 with Danger, Steele, Tmitch, Roughy, Nank, T.Adams, WHE and Treloar (capt)….. I'm backing Treloar to have a blinder and win the Anzac medal on Tuesday.He's due to put a big game together, high risk for high reward, as they say." END QUOTE.

            So his current score has to be the 1367/14

          LOL · 23/04/2017 at 22:27

          2598 rank, obviously. Lol overreact much?

            Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:48

            Yeah I kind of thought that initially too, "sitting at", generally means, where you are for the season, not the week lol.

            It was a very passionate rant though, just a bit misguided I think.

Wombatsfc · 23/04/2017 at 00:16

Almost 12,000 jumped on the Smurph this week no wonder a bit of pooh squeezed out,
Even after his 69 he'll still make money and be a straight swap for most, unlike the many spuds who were touted here but aren't subjected to such public ridicule here. Tawdry Jock. Your jealousy of the 16 flags compared to the saints 1 shouldn't influence the forum but many readers missed some of this years best cash generators because of it. Get over it mate the blues have had 18 successive rubbish years compounded by a period where they let Mick Malthouse run the club. I reckon that constitutes fair time served.

    Scotty_Steele · 23/04/2017 at 01:53

    Cogla13 · 23/04/2017 at 14:21

    I took Dahlhous 120 so i reccomend taking 126 from fyfe

Scotty_Steele · 23/04/2017 at 02:37

Hi community,

Need some help. Tried to set out the stuff to help.
Assuming the Anzac day matches always happen in Rnd 5, Ocker's brilliant spreadsheet (Thx Ocker) tells us:
Pendles Danger
R4/R5 R4/R5
2011 132/130 60/104
2012 134/140 91/141
2013 105/136 120/89
2014 129/128 87/192
2015 119/158 101/119
2016 104/131 99/137

5th rnd Ave 137 130.33 ORif we just take his Geelong Avg (can 1 be an avg?) its also 137

2017 so far

Rnd 1 146 138
Rnd 2 120 140
Rnd 3 125 138
Rnd 4 94 90

Avg 121.25 126.5

Further, both guys have something to prove after quiet games last weekend. But last time Danger did something like a 90 in Rnd 4 (2012), he cranked out a 192 with ADL

Would love some thoughts…I've got no idea..

Thanks

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 08:01

    Can't see either going sub 100. Big call. I've got the same dilemma

      Scotty_Steele · 23/04/2017 at 12:45

      FYI Pieman Mostacio's comments led to further, correcting and useful research as Anzac day not always on Rnd 5.

      Danger's recent performance against Sainters = good and recent Avg better…
      Danger for me

    Moustachio · 23/04/2017 at 09:56

    Last thing I would look at is what they score in round X. Much more relevant which team they're playing. Saints are Dangers worst team historically.

      Don't Blush Baby · 23/04/2017 at 10:04

      Correct ,his highest has been score is 116 , but I hope he goes large to day, I had VC on Bont which in hindsight should have went Fyfe

      Scotty_Steele · 23/04/2017 at 12:42

      Thanks Moustachio

      Danger for me

Tony · 23/04/2017 at 07:21

Huge mistake bringing in Dswallow last week. Couldn't put him for another week so traded him to Sloane this week and made him captain. A trade wasted but I'm much happier now

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 07:55

    Wow! Nicely done

      davo · 23/04/2017 at 08:03

      All's well that ends well

Alby · 23/04/2017 at 09:19

I want to take Fyfes 126 via the Captains loophole but I had the emergency on Barret who didn't play but the Lions have. I would like to bench Parfitt and put JOM on the ground as Captain. Iam aware that you get the lowest score if you have 2 emergencies in the 1 position but does that still apply when a donut is involved. This is my only loophole option left unfortunately.

    redherringfc · 23/04/2017 at 09:27

    Barrett didn't play so you will not get his 0. Put O'meara on and put the C on him. Put the E on Parfitt. All should be good.

neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 09:52

Spencer playing against Nank will test him .Reckon nank will kill him and go big

    Tibor · 23/04/2017 at 10:15

    g day Neil you sound like a long term Spencer critic as heaps of dees supporters, including me are. Spencer has me baffled at the moment. He actually looked good in the JLT and I was worried he'd get a game.

    He has been starved of opportunity across Gawn run of great form and now finds himself with about three months to play for his career. I thought Sandi would smash him last week and he beat him for hit outs but Spencer was serviceable or even better than serviceable. I've got no idea what to expect from him but hopeful he will be great deal better than the spud he was a few years back

      VayJiney26 · 25/04/2017 at 23:38

      I fear for the club and Watts now who do we play in the Ruck. If Hogan keeps his sooking up I'd throw him in there if keeps Jack in the forward line.

Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 09:52

I have Selwood, Parfitt, Tuohy, Stewart and Kennedy as uniques
Vs
WHE, Adams +450

Thinking I will lose by about 200

Opponent has already used C
I can put it on Kennedy
Play it safe with Danger or go for a risk on Kennedy

Thoughts?

    Moustachio · 23/04/2017 at 09:54

    Accept defeat with grace

      Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 10:00

      I think Saints are the only team danger hasn't scored Brownlow votes against so I might keep it on Kennedy

        Moustachio · 23/04/2017 at 13:03

        I took Fyfe C for the same reason. Still reckon you're cooked tho =)

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 10:49

    It may not be strategically viable put the C on Dangerfield if you want to win your league. Your opponent has him as well. If he goes big and scores 150, you will obviously score 300 and gain 150 points on your opponent. But if he goes 100, your net gain is only 100. I reckon you need to pick a unique player like Selwood or Kennedy. If Selwood pumps out a 150 as your captain, you gain 300 points on your opponent as he obviously does not have him. Your gain is doubled in comparison if Danger does the same thing. Josh Kennedy could bag 7 today and score 180+, BUT think very carefully about the possibility that he has one of those 50ish type games. If I was in your position, I would whack the C on Jellwood. A consistent tonner upperer and is likely to give you the greatest points gain on your rival. It may still leave you short, but it will keep your opponent nervous for longer. Good luck!!

      Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 11:45

      Thanks tophawk
      Didn't even think of putting it on Selwood
      Am almost definitely going to lose anyway so i may just whack it on Kennedy and hope he gets a 170+

      Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 17:09

      You were right
      Should have put it on Selwood

KSinny · 23/04/2017 at 12:03

Nervous as to whether Dusty will play what do u guys think?

    Moustachio · 23/04/2017 at 13:02

    I think you traded him in at max price last round, the SC gods fired a warning shot over the port bow, and now this round you will feel their full wrath.

      Karma Police · 23/04/2017 at 20:04

      A bit like those who traded in the YoYo you reckon? 🙂

    Ja191 · 23/04/2017 at 13:15

    He'll play, might spend a bit more time up forward though

from outside 50 · 23/04/2017 at 12:11

Trade Swallow this round?

    RickeyRat · 23/04/2017 at 13:33

    Yes definitely trade Swallow I'm going up to Robbie Gray or Hanners reckon Gray Port have soft draw and he will fill my M8 spot nicely,look how Gray plays at home and perfect fit during rounds 11-13 byes.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 23:10

    Trade him any round. Lol.

Swans2012 · 23/04/2017 at 12:15

Franklin and swallow again putting the handbrake on my scoring, franklin will come good but swallow should be looking over his shoulder this week….

Bells E Bubb · 23/04/2017 at 12:29

Hand on Berry holders must've been happy with his meaningless 4th quarter run round the back pocket, 2 kicks 3 handballs , a mark (?) From one sequence of play, wasn't it? A SC gift.

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 12:54

    I was happier about his first touch. Received a handball from Parker, gave it to JPK who kicked a goal. Hanners got 15sc for the "contested" handball receive and handball goal assist. Lol, you had to slow it down to even see it was him.

Derek · 23/04/2017 at 12:33

I had 7 rookies not playing (traded Hibberd to SMartin) and all of them have already played so I'm stuck for a VC loophole.

Have Fyfe with VC, but now I can't take it.

Toss up between Selwood and Danger

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 12:39

    Both good choices Derek, I have the C on Rooey atm cos my opponents don't have him.
    Feels a bit dirty tho…

    Ja191 · 23/04/2017 at 13:13

    I'd go danger but it's a toss up, don't see either going under 100

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 13:24

    don't put it on Berry by mistake Derek

Derek · 23/04/2017 at 12:40

How did Goldy ankle look? He must be in doubt for next week. Any news. Happy I kept Preuss at R3.

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 12:55

    Was it same ankle he had problem with preseason?

      Liam · 23/04/2017 at 15:54

      Yes it was. Lookd bad and got helped off then came back on a few minutes later so not sure if he will miss or not.

      I also have Preuss at R3 so wouldn't mind goldy missing.

Juzzy · 23/04/2017 at 12:51

The only time I dislike supercoach …

A few of my opponents have looped Dahl and Sloane.

Now, when I am at the game today, while barracking for the Saints I will be quietly conflicted every time Danger busts through a pack and kicks a goal.

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 13:48

    I'm the same Juzzy, Captain Rooey, go cattas.

Adcock & Swallow · 23/04/2017 at 13:08

TAKE FYFE 126
OR
PUT C ON DANGER

    Ja191 · 23/04/2017 at 13:11

    Take fyfe

    Sassy foods · 23/04/2017 at 13:18

    LOUD NOISES!!!

    BrownlowBoy · 23/04/2017 at 13:20

    Danger

    Cogla13 · 23/04/2017 at 13:49

    St K Dangers bogey team.

James · 23/04/2017 at 13:17

I am in the same boat. Take Fyfe VC or C Danger. My opponent has Danger too. Do i stay with him or try to go the point of difference?

    Baggy pants · 23/04/2017 at 13:36

    Take fyfe if your in front of your opponent . If Danger scores 140 its only 14 point difference overall. And you minimize risk.

Ando · 23/04/2017 at 13:38

Take Dahlhaus' 120 or put the C on Danger or Pendles?

    Howie · 23/04/2017 at 13:48

    Was trying to decide on this myself took up most of my brain power last night.
    Theory i came up with is approx 7 times last year Danger scored below 120 or equal, apparently is not 100% this week and the final decision maker is the Saints are his worst team.
    As far as Pendles goes no idea as i did not put any thought into him.
    Usually i set 130 as my Captain but last week i think i had 1 player score over 120 and also figure if Danger hits 130 well i miss out on 10 points if he hits 180 plus well i will be the grown man in the corner crying.

      Frankstonphil · 23/04/2017 at 14:49

      Dahl I wish I had VCed him I had Rocky so I only have his 105 and I reckon he was ripped off.

    Ja191 · 23/04/2017 at 13:51

    Dahlhaus is the safe option but upto you – going danger myself, feel a big score as with pendles

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 14:41

    Wells playing for first time. How will that affect the pies midfield?

      Touk tuk · 23/04/2017 at 14:45

      Good point Derek. He will take points from pendles, trelor and adams i rekon

        Derek · 23/04/2017 at 14:55

        I didn't start Pendles, already had Trelor and Adams. Waiting for Wells to play to find out what Pendles role might be.

    Touk tuk · 23/04/2017 at 14:43

    Dhal

    Thomas · 23/04/2017 at 20:44

    Pendles lowest score on ANZAC day since 2008 is 119

Josh · 23/04/2017 at 14:27

O'meara to Selwood or Z.Merrett?

    TBone · 23/04/2017 at 14:52

    Selwood

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 15:01

    Both good options. Zerrett is absolutely elite disposal. I'd maybe lean to him

    Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 15:02

    Doesn't really matter – both POD's and guns. I would maybe go Zerrett as slightly cheaper.

Frankstonphil · 23/04/2017 at 14:37

N Roo or Danger for C my opponent Has Danger

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 14:52

    Same dilemma, going with Roo, go cats.

      Frankstonphil · 23/04/2017 at 14:55

      Thanks mate doing the same he can go large but go Cats.

        hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:23

        Sry Phil.

Noirlust · 23/04/2017 at 16:25

Looks like the refs took a heap of acid before the st kilda and geelong game.

INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 17:14

Danger has shat the bed! Why is Sunday always so painful. Parfit depositing a Pickett score

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 17:17

    happy with C on Selwood

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 17:23

      Was about to post I hope you backed him in again!

        tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 18:06

        Did you whack it on Jellwood mate? I don't have him, but had a feeling he was going huge today. Still, I'll take Danger's 120 odd.

          hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:23

          Na went Rooey.

        neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 18:22

        might have you heds cheers

          hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:24

          Yeah I'm a dogs breakfast Neil.

      INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:30

      You deserved some captaincy fortune from the gods Derek. Well done

        hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:43

        Bloody sc gods.

    RickeyRat · 23/04/2017 at 17:22

    Danger and Roughead out in Sloane and Yeo

      BrownlowBoy · 23/04/2017 at 18:04

      Go ahead and trade Dangerfield. Scored 117 pre scaling and only turned up in the last quarter.

      Boltons Blues · 23/04/2017 at 18:07

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
      You're taking the p*ss right? You're going to trade out the best player in the league (top 5 of the modern era) for Sloane? and the Yo Yo?
      Atleast i wont have to worry about you winning this year

        Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:26

        Sounds like a Shake n Bake Fake move

    Tommo09 · 23/04/2017 at 18:01

    Finished on 117 pre-scaling

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 18:05

    You spoke to soon Pieman! With a quarter left to go, Danger put on the afterburners in the last quarter and doubled his score. Will end up around 120. Danger he good boy. Derek will be very pleased putting the big fat C on Selwood. Around 160 for him.

      INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:29

      I know. 55 at 3/4 & looking like a dog day & came to life & a majestic last quarter. Still wish I'd gone Selwood. Fantastic game from him

        Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:40

        Never doubt the Dangermouse! 🙂

DefyingMadness · 23/04/2017 at 17:35

Man Hawthorn are getting really unlucky

    Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:38

    Yeah, especially ending up with Tyrone Vickery.

BrownlowBoy · 23/04/2017 at 18:04

Joel Selwood is the best POD around.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/04/2017 at 18:06

    Honestly at the start of the season i was confused why so few people had him

    Boltons Blues · 23/04/2017 at 18:07

    Surprised he is only in 7% of teams, thats sure to change this week

      BrownlowBoy · 23/04/2017 at 18:10

      Hopefully they all jump on Sloane.

        Boltons Blues · 23/04/2017 at 18:11

        Did the upgrade from Taranto to Sloane this week, fairly happy with that effort last night 😀

      Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:42

      He has s round 12 bye, beautiful.

        Big G · 24/04/2017 at 09:34

        So happy to start with him. Unlucky he didn't get 200.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 24/04/2017 at 12:24

    Dat Dangerwood combo. Had them last year too. I'm gonna danger all over my wood!

Joshua · 23/04/2017 at 18:06

Take Dangerfield's 117 or go with Pendles?

    Ja191 · 23/04/2017 at 18:25

    Take danger's 120

      INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:35

      Agree. Lots of rain predicted Tuesday. Not sure that suits Pendles

        Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:24

        Wells playing first time, not sure how that will effect Pendles

hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:09

Well the Rooey as Captain experiment was tracking well til 3/4 time…..
Won't get a taste of the delicious iced vo-vo if ya don't roll the dice.
Lucky I have Jelwood to boost me up a bit.
GO CATS.

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:34

    Ankle injury slowed him down

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:45

      Yeah I near sh!t my pants when I seen that, was hoping he'd kick a couple of cheap goals near the end when my cats had a buffer…

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:20

    couldn't help a little smile Hedski

Weasel · 23/04/2017 at 18:17

Jack Billings…FFS I need to wire brush this stain from the reg grundys.

    St Jack · 23/04/2017 at 19:49

    What you still have him? A priority correction is required this week I would suggest before he sh*ts further cash. No way he will be even close to a top 10 forward so he must be moved on the sooner the better I'd say.

Holty · 23/04/2017 at 18:20

Damn Derek. You put the C on Selwood. Well played

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:34

    He was due some good fortune after some captaincy disasters

    Northernsoul74 · 23/04/2017 at 18:39

    Plus he started Berry.

      INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:54

      Berry is cheaper next week

      Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:21

      Berry was safely on the bench this week

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:23

    My regular Captains Eddy & Gawn weren't playing this week.

    Went Selwood last week as well, he done good

      Holty · 23/04/2017 at 19:28

      Yeah but im playing you this week. You could of stuffed up 1 more week for me.

        Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:41

        8 of my opponents had Danger as C, so it was a make or break move. Puts me just ahead in my matches

          Derek · 23/04/2017 at 20:24

          Every one of my opponents have WHE and none have McGrath. Most of my leagues will be decided by those 2. Going to be some close finishes.

          Looking at around 2350

            Holty · 23/04/2017 at 21:13

            Im taking Fyfes score and have the C on Hannan. Just hope he isnt a late in. We should have a close one.

              neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:19

              2350 will be hard to chase down Hotly .. I would take Fyfes

Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 18:32

Take Parfitt's 55 or back butler? Probably gonna roll the dice.

    DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 18:41

    He finished with 51 pts bit gutted tbh

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:48

      Had Fisher on the bench and played Parfitt, same same. 51.

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:48

    Butler Fin, should beat that…should.

      Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 18:51

      He hasn't gone below 60 all year so fingers crossed. Should kick a few against the dees

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:11

    spots on Finnius like putting C on ROO I want him though asap

DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 18:40

The Round of lessons
Murphy, Matera and Yeo

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 18:46

    Here here. Or hear hear? Not sure about that.
    Point chasers beware.

      Tim · 23/04/2017 at 20:01

      Hear hear Hedski.

        hedski · 23/04/2017 at 20:08

        Thanks Tim.

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 18:47

    Nailed it. All three shat their pants. I did stayed away from all three. I have bigger fish to fry next round.

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 18:53

    I called it earlier they woukd all shit the bed. And so it was! Don't chase flash in the pans

      DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 18:57

      You did I reemember Pieman
      I am very disappointed with SPP though. Should have bullied his way to a solid 80 but he seems to be puffed out now

        INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 19:58

        SPP is a bench rookie. He's shown us now he can't be trusted onfield

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 20:09

      50¢ trifecta would have paid $133 Pieman.

    Dnoyes · 23/04/2017 at 19:19

    Great call. Don't forget the supercoach legend Higgins too

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:20

    No one would have bought them into there teams, surely not.

    Neverweaken · 23/04/2017 at 20:01

    One poor week for each of them. And their teams were playing away and absolute shite. Murph will bounce back. Yeo was speculative. Lack of mid forwards this year.

      Derek · 23/04/2017 at 20:22

      Teams play away 50% of the time. Can't have a good score every second week

        Rooster XXX · 24/04/2017 at 09:18

        Tams play away 50% of the time??? Its not the Bellarine league mate.
        Given all the Melbourne teams share either MCG or Etihad as their home ground even though they may be listed as the "away" team they are effectively still playing at home!!
        No one plays at Vic Park, Windy Hill, Arden St, Princess Park or Lakeside oval any more mate so unless travelling interstate there is no such thing as an "away" game as such!!
        I don't have Murphy but he just like any other premium mid is going to have the occasional poor performance – Danger struggled v the Hawks for example. I think in Murphy's case there is a big enough sample for owners to be confident that he will maintain an average in the vicinity of 110 -115 for the remainder of the year. At his starting price if you started with him or got him before his price rises that is good going. Important to not only factor in his scoring but also need to consider the money saved getting Murphy at is starting price in theory should have allowed Murphy owners to strengthen another line and possibly squeeze in an extra premo or effective mid pricer up fwd or down back instead of a slow burning rookie. A lot of I told you so going on this week off the back of Murphy and Yeo struggling. In Yeo case both his poor games have been in heavy conditions at the "G" given a big part of his points generation comes from intercept marking it is no surprise he has struggled to generate points in these games. Most of the premo fwds are likely to be up and down a bit this season. Macrae, Roo & Dahl have been the most consistent but after that the likes of Greene, Franklin, Yeo etc are all likely to be up and down. Still think all three of them will be end up top 10 fwds so are all valid picks. There are not too many rolled gold fwd premos this year – Dahl & Macrae obvious choices and Roo providing he stays on the park will score well roaming the wings taking a dozen marks each game. Franklin will hit his straps know that Sydney are starting to get a few back and their draw opens up. After that there are a few speculative picks required and Yeo is right in the mix and a valid selection. Don't own Yeo yet but his role across HB this year is very SC friendly and he is high on my watch list at his price. All the sheep just saying I told you so after one low score is tedious. Worth noting Yeo also spent a fair bit of time fwd in this game as the Weagles were listless. Yeo will continue to score well in the West and also think he will be effective under the rough in Melb. Eagles don't play at the G again this season so he remains a valid selection in my view. But hey opinions are like a/holes we all have them!!

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:32

    Jokes on you, Matera will still gain 50k in price which is what lots of people got him for

      Holty · 23/04/2017 at 23:55

      Not exactly sure 50k is worth 2 trades though.

        Derek · 24/04/2017 at 00:38

        He will make another $40k next week and it is only one trade, almost worth it. Will see what a trade is worth in another 10 weeks 😉

          Cogla13 · 24/04/2017 at 06:58

          2 trades, he is not a keeper.

Baggy pants · 23/04/2017 at 18:58

Did Roo get injured, he hardly had a possie in the second half?

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 19:19

    Roo and Steele were both about 70 at half time.

    BigBoyBananana · 23/04/2017 at 19:25

    Had a little ankle injury midway through the 4th, nearly needed the fkn stretcher again for him but next thing you know the Roo is back out there 5 minutes later, amazing stuff

tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 19:10

Tom Mitchell. You did very well today. You cleaned up your D/E and you have been rewarded with a ripper score. Good boy.

Adam Treloar, I hope you watched his game today……….

    Holty · 23/04/2017 at 19:31

    Cant really blame smitch last week though. Everytime he got the ball noone from the hawks helped him or even tried to make any effort to give him a option.

      Holty · 23/04/2017 at 19:37

      Titch. Woops

        tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 19:48

        Hehehehe. Smitch was bloody useless for the Hawks last week, and bloody useless for the Eagles this week. Spot on mate! Hahahaha

Rocksta · 23/04/2017 at 19:12

What are all the Titch haters saying now?
Can't believe some people were contemplating trading him. He's only gone sub 100 once this year, and his average will be around 110 after today.

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 19:22

    The bloke is safe as houses. Coaches just flip out with a slight dip in scoring of premo players, then pull the trade trigger, and blow their whole season with clowns like Yeo or Matera. Tom Mitchell is a season keeper*. Period.

    *Barring serious injury.

      Holty · 23/04/2017 at 19:32

      Agreed

    Donnie · 23/04/2017 at 19:45

    Exactly, certain high profile posters here were calling him not Supercoach relevant. Well bite on that ass clowns!

      tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 19:49

      Hehehehe. Thats right! And it feels so good!

        DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 20:06

        I'm saying wish I started with him over D.Shit

    Iamme · 23/04/2017 at 20:21

    Mitchell is a ball magnet, why would you trade him?, Hanners I traded because he really started badly and lets be honest he hasn't exactly made a big score to make up for it….so becoming a top ten mid is looking more and more of a struggle with each passing week.

      Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 08:47

      Bad decision

    Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:17

    Mitchell's been a keeper for a few years now, always got heaps of the pill and has the ability to go big, how could anyone hate that? lol

Jonathan · 23/04/2017 at 19:21

Even though murph and yeo shit the bed will their prices still rise?

    KSinny · 23/04/2017 at 19:29

    Yep both got over there break evens

      Don't get sucked in · 23/04/2017 at 19:43

      Oh congratulations!

      Still burnmen at the end of the day that coaches WILL have to burn trades on at some point if they want to compete with coaches who know what they are doing.

Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 19:32

Not one person tonned up for the Eagles – that's when you know a team is having a bad day

    Alfredo · 23/04/2017 at 19:54

    The Eagles are the MCG's biatch alright. Please don't think the Hawks are suddenly fixed people. If you still have Hawks premos you still will need to jettison them at some point especially Roughead, Gibson and Rioli owners.

      hedski · 23/04/2017 at 20:15

      Roughy went to Stef this week, makes me feel a bit better about captaining Rooey.

      Kyle · 23/04/2017 at 20:17

      I never saw any of those as premos. Roughy is coming back from a year away cause cancer and is a mid pricer, gibo is well past his best and was never gonna do much this year and rioli has never been a big SC scorer so idk why many expected much this year. He does his damage with a few amazing things, not breaking games apart with masses of disposals or kicking big bags. Hasnt really been sc relevant for years imo.

      Titch is a hawks premo that needs to be kept tho and is a season keeper.

      Derek · 23/04/2017 at 20:19

      I started with Cyril, I just gotta keep him. 12 touches for 81 pts. He would have got more but went off with 15 mins to go, air-sickness!

        neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:05

        great attempt reminded me of shawn smith

          hedski · 23/04/2017 at 21:12

          Your looking at a massive score this week Neil, great work.

        Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 23:21

        Cyril has too many unrewarded no-disposals to be sc relevant. He gets 3-4 great taps in tight games which don't score points, but can generate scoring chances.

        His a gun player, but never been sc relevant week-in, week-out.

    INPieman · 23/04/2017 at 19:59

    Yep. And they lost to Hawthorn

      DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 20:09

      Not going near JOM, D.Swallow and D.Shiel ever again have to keep Shiel at M8 for whole year though and just pray he averages 105 for rest of season

Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 19:56

Made an error yday 'fiddling' with my team and traded out T.Stewart putting in EVW then realised I couldn't change it back. A rookie mistake, literally! How is everyone doing this round? Hope I can made more ground on the leaders 1789 with 5 players to go. Good luck to all.

    Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:34

    Sounds like you're in a good position gun, yeah no reversals after the round starts I think, I'm travelling fairly average this week, might get 2200-ish.

DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 19:58

Who wins:

136 pts Oliver, WHE vs Rance, Butler, Treloar, McGrath

    DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 20:04

    If Butler and McGrath can eat up close to if not all that 136 lead think I'm in a good position for the win

    hedski · 23/04/2017 at 20:17

    Rance Butler etc

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:02

    2nd one easy

Lenny · 23/04/2017 at 20:14

Trade is Zerret or Titchell next week?

    Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 21:18

    Either or – both good picks. Titchell cheaper but Zerrett a bit more likely to be top ten mid IMO.

    Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 23:15

    I'd go Mitchell, he is basically the only Hawk that is extracting the ball from each contest. Even with JOM back in the side, his unlikely to take on a heavy workload on the inside this season.

    Whereas I think Watson & Heppel will start to take points and contested disposals from Zerrett after the bye rounds, when they have truly found their match conditioning.

    Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 08:43

    Titch better value. Think Zerrett will average +5 more.

tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 20:20

Hi Community,

Slugging it out with the one and only Jock, the father of fantasy football this week. (JR Brumby FC in Trig's Happy Place league)

As it stands, JR Brumby FC is sitting on 1663 with 6 to play, and Tophawks on 1817 with 4 to play.

Both captains played and E loopholes exhausted.

Jock has Treloar, Nankervis, Rance, Howe, Grundy, and WHE to play.
Tophawk has Treloar, Nankervis, Adams, and Butler to play.

Who wins? I think it is going be close.

    DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 20:30

    Both got a rookie left which is vital so leaves 3 premo vs 1 in the POD category. If Grundy goes large your toast

      tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 20:35

      You are right there. Just as well Mason Cox comes in. I hope he might steal a bit of Grundy's thunder point scoring wise.

    redherringfc · 23/04/2017 at 20:32

    I hope Jock wins, because I need Adams and Butler to stink it up, if i'm a chance in 2 of my leagues.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/04/2017 at 20:43

    I think they r all gonna be close hawk..
    If Cox takes some of Grundy's ruck work you may have a shot.
    Hoping pendes has an unusual quieter game on Tuesday. Currently leading Liam but he has pendles to come.

      tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 21:15

      Cheers Trigger

    neil Demons Delight · 23/04/2017 at 21:00

    going to be close Jock likes these close ones just did me by bringing in Newman early Wouldn't surprise if he got there by under 10 sorry Tophawk only my opinion

      tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 21:19

      All good mate. You might be on the button, but there is hope! Cheers

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 21:20

    You might be in trouble TH

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:45

    So it's
    Jock with: Howe, Grundy, Rance and WHE as uniques
    And you: Adams and Butler +154

    If we go off averages you have 345 points off uniques
    Jock has 383 points

    But that's only off averages
    Off projected
    You have 351 and he has
    378

    So I'm afraid it's not looking good for you

    Dean · 23/04/2017 at 22:11

    Jock should win that as he only has 154 to make up on you and Rance, Howe & Grundy should outscore Adams & Butler by around 60 points.

    That being said I hope I'm wrong as I have Butler on the field. May the best team win.

    Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 08:41

    I'm with the others, you're cooked tophawk

DavidSA · 23/04/2017 at 20:36

TopHawk you basically gotta hope Butler outscores WHE, which I think is highly likely with rain forecasted.
Also need Grundy scoring -95 which may happen but not likely

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 20:43

    I am hoping Adams will revel in the rain. Heavy rain may mean Cox will be a late out, which would help Grundy.

Thomas · 23/04/2017 at 20:51

Got a tough decision community. In my main league, opponent is 210 pts ahead of me. He has Nank left and i have Pendles and WHE. He put the C on Danger, whilst i had the VC on him. Should i play it safe and double Danger's score (means Pendles and WHE need to outscore Nank by 95, or do i risk it on Pendles and hope WHE and Pendles score doubled can outscore Nank by 215. Whilst i would love to win this, as it is top of the table clash, i am also going for rank. Which would you pick?

    Youngy · 23/04/2017 at 21:02

    Id take Danger as C

    Randomcliche · 23/04/2017 at 21:09

    Rank 120 is good. For the win it's pendles.

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 21:11

    You have it in the bag. Double Danger's score, and with the wet weather forecast, Pendles and WHE should get you the 95 points in wet footy conditions. Don't get greedy mate.

      Thomas · 23/04/2017 at 21:14

      Nah mate, have to include Nanks score, which he should ton up. Meaning Pendles and WHE would have to score 195

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:47

    Either and you win but try for the extra points with perndles

      Thomas · 23/04/2017 at 22:12

      You reckon i win regardless?

    Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 22:45

    Captain Pendles, his Anzac day record is amazing.

    Grundy will beat Nank in the ruck and around the ground.

    Your result will hinge on WHE

      Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 22:48

      Sorry Nank against Spencer, makes it tougher for your team to win.

      I'd still captain Pendles.

        Thomas · 24/04/2017 at 07:55

        I agree mate. If Nank goes under 100, then i reckon i'll win unless pendles has another sub par score. If Nank does ton up, which is expected, i'm heavily relying on WHE to score large

    Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 08:38

    C Pendles all the way. Median Anzac Day score is 130, he loves the big moments.

Dean · 23/04/2017 at 21:15

I'm currently on 1786 after 16 played with Danger as my Captain.
I was lucky as I had Hampton, Otten, Houston, Sloan, Dahalhaus, Macrae, Sandilands & Titch all on field.
Unfortunately the BONT & Swallow let me down. Predicted to score 2366 but would be happy with 2300
I think the top score this week will be around 2600+ However going by what others are scoring im finding it difficult to get a gauge on what the Average will be this week.

Any guesses what the average will be this round community? Cheers and good luck to all.

    Rocksta · 23/04/2017 at 21:32

    2250 odd I reckon.

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:55

    Getting 2270 will likely be it i think

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 22:24

    2200 + I'd say. With many rookies out of the team some people might be a little lower. Danger's comeback last quarter has made the average higher though.

Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 21:20

What's everyone on track for? I reckon I will be up around 2300 this week.

    Rocksta · 23/04/2017 at 21:31

    Same.
    I think a lot of people will be around that mark.

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:48

    I reckon around 2230

    Kyle · 23/04/2017 at 23:16

    Projected 2294 this week. would be very happy with a score like that

    Stinga · 23/04/2017 at 23:34

    atm 1978 – projected 2275. Pendles, nank, butler to play. Been a good week. Dangerwood duo helps a lot

    guruGG · 24/04/2017 at 10:52

    atm 1714 projected 2265 happy with jelwood and C on Dahlhaus worked ok too

DefyingMadness · 23/04/2017 at 21:21

Is 1617 from 15 around par so far?

    Finnius123 · 23/04/2017 at 21:27

    Maybe a bit low – just depends who you have left

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:48

    Have you used captain? If not it's good

    Top Gun · 23/04/2017 at 22:25

    Good score

    DEE · 23/04/2017 at 23:03

    1906 with 5 to come
    Sloane as captain.
    Murphy finally let me down but happy with rest of team

Iamme · 23/04/2017 at 21:35

If you think WHE will get a 60 plus and Pendles can crack 130 plus…back them in!…maybe the Nank will have a quite game, as he's up against one of the better rucks in Grundy

    Rocksta · 23/04/2017 at 21:39

    Wrong match buddy.
    Nank up against Spencer

    KiwiSaint · 23/04/2017 at 21:40

    Nank vs Grundy?

    tophawk · 23/04/2017 at 22:33

    Check the fixtures mate. Come on!! Melbourne v Richmond (Nank) and Essendon v Collingwood (Grundy)

Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:53

Darn I'm a goner this week.
Got Oliver, Grundy to make up an extra 36 points
Wish me lick

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2017 at 21:54

    You can also wish me luck if you don't want to wish me lick

      Russty_ · 23/04/2017 at 23:26

      Good lick lol, who's your opponent got?

meph · 23/04/2017 at 22:30

Does anyone give me any hope this week. Currently 6 points down with treloar and WHE left. Opponent has Oliver and jobe.

    Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 22:40

    Your a chance if Treloar doesn't butcher the ball again.

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 23:10

    Will depend on what role Wells plays.

    You are big chance

    SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 00:02

    Will be super close.

    HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 11:27

    I should win all but 1 of my League games in which i need Treloar to score 135 to win. Time to not spud it up Treloar but i have as much faith Zac Dawson coming back and scoring 100 than i do in Treloars kicking ability.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:40

    Think you might just go down.

TBone · 23/04/2017 at 22:32

Hey lads, who do we think will be top 10 mids this year? Looking at possibly picking up hanners or Parker if they get below about 520k.

    Rocksta · 23/04/2017 at 22:49

    They only need to be in the top 10 averages from the time you bring them in to the end of the season.
    Hanners won't get to $520K as he made his BE this week. Parker will though.
    I picked up Hanners this week. I think he will average around 110 for the rest of the season. That won't be top 10 but for his acquisition price, I'll take it.
    Not so sure on Parker though. I think I'll leave him for now.

    Itchyballs · 23/04/2017 at 23:02

    I think Hanners can be. Not sure about Parker being top 10. Maybe top 20 though. It's very hard going with a top 10. Their are 18 teams and each top scoring mid for each team could be a top 10. Then there are injury concerns, which would stop me suggesting the likes of rocky. But to throw my hat in the ring…. pendles, zmerrit, fyfe, sloane, cripps, bont, danger, selwood, kennedy, wines

    Hawks · 23/04/2017 at 23:07

    Danger, Selwood, Dusty, Pendles, Sloan, Rockliff, Kennedy, Hanners, Bont & Fyfe…in no particular order.

    Derek · 23/04/2017 at 23:08

    My top 8 mids hasn't changed yet from Preseason.

    Danger, Fyfe, Selwood, Pendlebury, JPK, Hannebery, Trelor, TMitch.

    Rocky and Sloane round out top 10.

      Kyle · 23/04/2017 at 23:13

      I was very similar derek, except i had rocky and the bont in the top 8 instead of tmitch and trelor

        Derek · 24/04/2017 at 00:34

        Yep. The Bont has been the one standout for me. Thought he would struggle if Dogs struggle, but he seems to be very SC friendly.

    Juzzy · 23/04/2017 at 23:36

    All the ones who have the round 11 bye.

Swans2012 · 23/04/2017 at 23:12

Still a few stains and not a great week but very happy with Barrett to horlin smith (as a job secure 65+ m8 now that spp Cant be trusted) and jom to hanners. Money and trades well spent I think….. shame swallow, franklin and co are letting the team down….

    Derek · 24/04/2017 at 00:32

    Myers should play next week, maybe go early to him?

Russty_ · 23/04/2017 at 23:24

Black was pretty good today, anyone reckon he'll keep his job?

    Van djik · 24/04/2017 at 00:00

    If he plays like that again next week then probably.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 00:05

    not guaranteed they like parsons at the cattery looks a trap to me

    Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 01:46

    Definitely wait a week

      Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:02

      Yeah for sure, cheers mate.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:41

    Pretty good chance. Parfitt will be dumped soon. I was at the match and he looked lost and not up to it yet.

Choice · 23/04/2017 at 23:38

Pick up Gray,Heppel, Cripps or wait a week for Kennedy to drop further? Will have $530k

    Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:37

    My choice would be Gray out of those three.

      Derek · 24/04/2017 at 09:16

      Gray after his round 9 bye

    Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 08:34

    Cripps, Murphy looking LTI

      Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 11:42

      ??

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 00:17

It is with regret I say goodbye to a loyal servant of Demons DELIGHT C .Oliver done nothing wrong just Hanners is better for the team going forward also SPP and welcome Mr Fisher. Hanners comes in to join 14 fellow keepers The opposition from this forum are just too clever and we need to make learned decisions just to compete

    Derek · 24/04/2017 at 00:27

    Oliver is missing Gawn. Next year he will be close to picking himself.

    John James · 24/04/2017 at 15:12

    I'm keeping Oliver,yet to go under 100pts,had him in from the start,quite happy to have him as my M8 at the end.

Derek · 24/04/2017 at 00:31

Myers should get a game next week, heard he was very good in VFL yesterday

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 09:14

    Because he was on the LTI list I'm not sure the 8 weeks has expired yet. Someone should know

      Derek · 24/04/2017 at 09:16

      i did hear there was a stuff up with some paperwork as well….

        JamiesNinjas13 · 24/04/2017 at 12:33

        Yep there was a stuff up with paperwork and he was even eligible to play tomorrow but Woosh has eased him in via VFL. All signs point to him playing against the Demons next week.

Russty_ · 24/04/2017 at 02:04

Is Horlin Smith worth bringing in, even though he goes up a bit this week…for O'Meara, or better to wait for the next Rookie?, only 45 k in the bank.

    Browncow · 24/04/2017 at 03:16

    Wait for the rookie Russty. GHS can play but with Menegola, S Selwood and Parsons on the horizon he is one bad game from the twos. Might even get another look at JOM in the process.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:48

    Better options available at a cheaper price

David · 24/04/2017 at 07:39

Yeo had 4 frees against. Expect him to bounce back next week

    KSinny · 24/04/2017 at 07:45

    They also moved him up forward after the first quarter but he's been playing very well off half back. It was just a bad day for West Coast in general

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:48

    Burnman.

    Leeds17 · 24/04/2017 at 18:53

    Yeah haven't lost faith, he didn't disappear like past seasons just had a shocker, 6 clangers, WC don't play at the MCG for the rest of the season.

    Though like i said last week if you brought him in this week it was a silly move, missed the boat.

Pablo · 24/04/2017 at 08:28

Might be a bit early but i'm thinking 2300 will be par for this week. Thoughts?

    Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 09:28

    2250 I reckon.
    A lot of the scores I've seen in leagues are projected from 2230 to 2310.

    Swans2012 · 24/04/2017 at 09:39

    Yeah looks that way, will be some high scores for those that everything's come together for

    Randomcliche2 · 24/04/2017 at 12:30

    Agreed, 2300 looks like par (top 10% weekly). Looks like I'm about to bogie on up….

    DEE · 24/04/2017 at 12:46

    1906 with 5 to come
    Sloane as Captain.

      Pablo · 24/04/2017 at 13:41

      Nice. Good luck with your last 5.

Tommo09 · 24/04/2017 at 08:53

1990 with Nank and Butler left will get me to about 2150 hopefully

Below par?

Filthy with myself for not listening to tophawk and putting C on Kennedy not Selwood
Cost me about 80 points and put me out of my league game

    Pablo · 24/04/2017 at 09:07

    2150 is probably below par methinks. Might be general SC par if lucky, but unders for community par.

      Tommo09 · 24/04/2017 at 09:21

      Yeah thats what I thought
      Would have got 80 extra points if I listened to tophawk

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 09:26

    I tried Tommo!! I was thinking about you when Jellwood started to go huge and Kennedy was stagnating against the rampaging Hawks. I thought, I wonder if he shifted the C to Sellwood. Not to be mate. Its not a season defining moment though, load up and roll on round 6. Cheers mate

      tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 09:34

      There are some pretty solid scores out there this week. I reckon par should be in the vicinity of 2250-2300. I can see some players touching 2400 this week. Barring any dramas to my last 4 players in the next two games, I am hoping for around 2270. I'd be happy with that.

        Northerner · 24/04/2017 at 14:13

        I've seen a predicted 2450 from one team in a league I'm in. Performing rookies is the key.

Saundo · 24/04/2017 at 08:56

Heppell, Merrett or Dusty as C ?

    Pablo · 24/04/2017 at 09:08

    Merrit.

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 09:36

    Zachary Merret for me mate. Just concerned about Dusty's overall fitness. That dodgy groin might just hamper his output a little. Heppell is just a bit too up and down for me at the moment. Merrett is super consistent and deserves the C. Cheers

Derek · 24/04/2017 at 09:15

the Villians and the heros report will be great this week…..

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 09:58

    You could have had danger in all 3 categories at different points of the game yesterday

      The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 10:52

      Probably need a separate category for Berry.
      The Gary Rohans?

        INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 11:37

        Who will ever forget Gary Rohan's -2. Gave away a free & did his hammy. Jock had him onfield & lost it. Think Pickett deserves a spot in the Gary Rohan section

          Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 11:44

          Pickett makes Rowan look like Leigh Matthews

          The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 11:44

          I missed the -2 but did get a 9 from him at some point.
          is -2 the lowest SC score ever? I can't remember it being beaten.

            Randomcliche2 · 24/04/2017 at 12:41

            Michael Gardiner rnd 17 http://www.fanfooty.com.au/players/year.php?first… 😛

            PS I also thought in 2015 when Rocky got ko'd early he'd given a free away, but alas not according to fanfooty…it has him as a zero….but still not even close to Mr Gardiner's 2008 rnd 17 effort!

              INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 12:59

              WOW! -19 that's amazing. Eric Hipwood played a full game last week I think it was for a solitary 1 pointer

      Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:50

      Still struggling how he got to 120 after 55 at 3/4 time.

Starkingdom · 24/04/2017 at 09:38

Is Dusty playing??

    Howie Phucter · 24/04/2017 at 11:06

    Yes he is apparently

    Youngy · 24/04/2017 at 13:34

    They said he will play. Passed fitness test

Big G · 24/04/2017 at 09:59

Is Otten one of the greatest cheap options ever? How did Selwood only get 154 – if he was in a bad team he would have got 250?

    Pablo · 24/04/2017 at 10:27

    Don't know about best ever, but certainly the pick of the crop this year. I can'take remember what price Ricky started in his first season, but I am pretty sure he ripped it up early.

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 11:29

    Otten probably sitting in the top 10 best performing ever so far. In fact he's doing better than all but a handful of premos. I've scratched my head over Selwood's 154. That game deserved a 200. He did it all. But chopped it up a bit & got punished

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 11:30

    I reckon Barlow still holds the title of best rookie ever

      Big G · 24/04/2017 at 11:56

      who can ever forget Barlow, but who would have thought otten was capable of pulling out such scores.

        Derek · 24/04/2017 at 12:53

        I admit, I said don't get him, poor JS.

        INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 13:03

        The year before Barlow got drafted his VFL coach rang every AFL coach & said you have to get this guy he's an absolute freak. The only one that went & had a look at him was Mark Harvey the Freo coach who liked what he saw. Rest is history

    Northerner · 24/04/2017 at 13:28

    Yes. Agreed. And I missed him – also Houston. Other than that I can't complain. All premos doing well with Treloar the only one that could lift a bit for me. V happy all my mid- pricers have performed. Sandi, Oliver, Z Jones, Steele.

      Northerner · 24/04/2017 at 13:30

      And I missed the Gawn and Goldy carnage with Sandi, Witts, Pruess going well.

guruGG · 24/04/2017 at 10:17

Is there a SC group for the community this year?

    HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 11:14

    776203

      BradK · 24/04/2017 at 11:41

      Im in Jr 1%ers, which are ranked 101.
      Well done boys.
      One of the guys in our team is coming around 70th, and after a slow start im on about 2000th.

      Eveey chance that we could win this fellas

      guruGG · 24/04/2017 at 12:06

      Thanks Howie, how do I join ? Can only see "create group" under groups?

TBone · 24/04/2017 at 10:33

Any rookies you guys are thinking of trading out this week? Seriously thinking about upgrading a rookie to Simpson or johannisen as I think they won't be going down more than where they are at now

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 11:34

    As a Simmo owner from the start I wouldn't be in a hurry. He's in a new role & he isn't scoring like he used to. Marchbank & Plowman have pushed him up the ground

      Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 11:45

      True although he seems to be settling in to that role, had a very good game Friday.

      neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 12:02

      and Shaw thoughts

        Randomcliche2 · 24/04/2017 at 12:45

        Just wondering when I will be able to downgrade Otten to to Shaw 😛

      Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:54

      Saw him in an interview recently and he isn't sure if he will be a required player in the future. I wouldn't mind betting he will be at a new club next year. Be interesting to see how it plays out.

HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 11:31

Roughead 15 disposals 3 goals and 67 Supercoach points how the hell did he score less that Kennedy
Josh Kennedy 12 disposals 1 goal 3 points and 76 Supercoach points

Worst part is i have both in my team….. spuds.
And 38% of people have Roughead but not 1 bloody person that i play out of all my leagues, Always the bloody way

demon_spud · 24/04/2017 at 11:33

Jock you pulchritudinous man, you informed me and I listened, the Yo always on the string. Looks like when those other bastards in his team aren't pulling their weight, Simpson expects him to carry the load like Atlas carrying the world upon his shoulders while shit goes wrong. Love ya….in a manly way.

INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 11:33

Did anyone else notice Tom Stewart was on 61 when he gave away a free, then a 50, & the saints player kick the goal. He got wound back to 45. Punished by 16 points for a free against, 50 & goal. We don't need players doing that. Still he bounced back for a respectable 67

    Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 11:46

    Would have been a great score otherwise. Hold for sure.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 12:00

    Is he better than curtly ambrose though

      Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 15:27

      Ambrose? Or hampton?

    LoganJosh7 · 24/04/2017 at 17:15

    i was watching at that point as well and i cant remember if it was before or after the free but he also kicked a clanger straight to a st kilda player. so i assume it might have something to do with that?

Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 11:47

For those of us who don't have Pay TV could someone kindly advise if Hannan is a late in tonight? I'd prefer he wasn't my captain!!

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 12:01

    He was the only of the 3 emergencies that didn't play VFL. So he's clearly on stand by for someone. I'd have a back up plan for your captain if he comes in

    Holty · 24/04/2017 at 12:13

    Same here steve

    kim · 24/04/2017 at 12:30

    check AFL website about 30 mins before the kick off and they will have final teams and if any late outs.

    Soothsayer · 24/04/2017 at 12:37

    I'm trying to rely on him for the Dangerfield captain score and scared stiff having Hannon sitting with the C on the field. Wondering if it could be worth just sticking with Pandles C score and not risking some disaster with a very late IN from Hannon.

      Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 14:51

      I would take Pendles C score regardless of Hannan worries

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/04/2017 at 12:42

    Steeve download the footy alerts app.
    Notifies you of any late outs/ins and team section about an hour before the bounce for every game.
    Really handy if you are out and about.

      Steeeve · 24/04/2017 at 14:02

      Sounds great buggered if I can find it though?

    Randomcliche2 · 24/04/2017 at 12:48

    +1 on Trigg. Best free app on my phone behind google maps and email!

Tommo09 · 24/04/2017 at 11:53

Is it too early to be looking at who we want to upgrade to?

I'm looking at Shaw, Docherty, Lloyd/Adams, Rocky, Hannebery/Kelly, S.Martin, Dahl, NRoo, Greene and maybe Buddy

This I'm sure will change as performances and injuries occur

This week I will probably paint the fence with Roughy and O'Meara/SPP

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 11:58

    agree with all but so does everyone .Shaw and Hanners first never this cheap

      Tommo09 · 24/04/2017 at 12:08

      Forgot Pendles in that
      I would have to pick him over Hanners or Rocky but I think I need those two
      If there is an injury to one of my premo mids I will get pendles I think

    You

    Randomcliche2 · 24/04/2017 at 12:50

    You. AT>Oliver, WHE>65. Sleep easy.

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 13:05

    Unless Oliver goes 150+ I'd say you'll get that one

Derek · 24/04/2017 at 12:56

Too close to call

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 13:28

    I would go the other way oliver and adams

INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 13:09

I've got a cracking match going on with Moustachio. I have a 40 point lead & Butler & he has Adams. He should win but I'm hoping Butler can deliver a decent score to make it interesting tomorrow. Looks like your in a similar boat. Would be a nice time for Butler to kick 4 & ton up

    uDonkey · 24/04/2017 at 13:18

    Tough one INP. yeah wouldn't it be nice if Butler can deliver tonight if tons up. Will be really close match for me and my opponent.

    Lets pray the Supercoach Gods are on our side this week.

      INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 13:55

      It's rare the Gods are nice to us! Let's hope this is one of those rare days

    Moustachio · 24/04/2017 at 14:50

    40 + 65 = 105
    Adams = 110

    Sorry pie give up now

      INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 15:14

      Not so fast Moustachio. I'm still amazed Adams has played 4 games without limping off. An 80 from Butler would really make a game of it

      SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 16:05

      Good luck to ya both. Can go either way, hate to be in your spot Moustachio if Butler pumps 80+ tonight (which i really hope he does). Then the pressure is on you, is Adams any good in the wet? I hope not 🙂 cause my opponent has him too.

    Derek · 24/04/2017 at 15:11

    I have a game I am ahead by 21. I have McGrath and they have WHE.

      Derek · 24/04/2017 at 15:14

      In the A graders im 12 ahead with Trelor and McGrath vs WATSON and WHE

      SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 16:07

      Deym! Derek couple of close games there. Lucky for me, i only have one the rest of other leagues I'm in got it in bags already.

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 13:27

one side of me the fantasy bit says butler go big the Demon side says spud it had this problem for a while maybe ton it and dees victory would be good

Mystic Mac · 24/04/2017 at 13:35

Good bye Salt and Pepper, Hello hand on berry's.

Jordy · 24/04/2017 at 13:37

Does Jack Steele know footy games go for 4 quaters? Another week of looking like a ton at 3QT before not getting near it in the last

    DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 13:50

    Still he is last to move on if we even can btw. Full premo team this yr will require master trades

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 13:51

    I've been watching him. He's slow, has no tank & as a result goes missing. He's not a keeper. I'll be moving him on when the right time presents

      Juzzy · 24/04/2017 at 14:37

      I have been watching him too INP.

      You are spot on. He aint that quick. He rotated with Dunstan on Danger yesterday. Did a great job for 3 quarters but come the last Danger had them both spent and did what he does …

      On the upside he is great in tight, smart, tackles hard and has excellent disposal. At 21 with a few preseasons under his belt you would hope his tank improves as the season progresses.

      Not saying he's a keeper, just trying to stay positive.

        INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 15:08

        Agree Juzzy. When Dunstan & Steele hit the wall Danger got off the chain & went nuts. He's got the hallmarks of a very good SC scorer. But he needs a few preseason's under the belt. After all it took Dusty a long time to get a tank. I don't see him as a priority trade out. I think he will continue to give reasonable output. And given I now have Nank Dahl & Macrae I don't see who the next best 3 Fwds are yet. The key forwards have already shown us the best & worst they have. Not sure I want any of them (Buddy an exception perhaps). NRoo is perhaps an option but I'll wait till he's cheaper

          Juzzy · 24/04/2017 at 16:12

          Not SC relevant but I was at the game yesterday.
          Despite all the hype around Selwood and Danger I reckon Blicavs won the game for the Cats.

          Spent the first half negating Roo up and down the wings. Then monstered Longer in the ruck. Then , bugger me, he tagged Jack Steven during the last.

            Starkingdom · 24/04/2017 at 19:11

            Selwood 2nd half one of the best I have seen. Agree Blitz was exceptional but can't agree he was better.

            Looking forward to seeing Cats vs top eight or in form teams.

          Big G · 24/04/2017 at 16:28

          Steele was never a keeper anyway. I am rotating him into my midfield and upgrading.

      Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 18:59

      More an outside player. You hardly notice him on the field.

DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 13:49

    In the money!

Nick · 24/04/2017 at 14:08

Thoughts community:
Currently 91 points up with Pendels VS Adams and Merrett…who should win?
Or do l put C on pendels and hope for the best? Thinking l should keep Fyfe's VC score

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 14:15

    If that 91 points not including Fyfe's VC score. Then i think you should win.
    91 + Fyfe 126 + Pendles = that's roughly 300 odd points. It will be hard for Adams and Merrett to produce that much. But will come close.

      Nick · 24/04/2017 at 14:18

      that includes Fyfe's 126 🙁

        SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 14:28

        Oh!

        If ya put C on pendle the you are 35 points down. Let say pendle scored (thats IF) 150 x2 = 300 – 35 = 265
        Adams and Merrett need to get 135 ave between them to win against you.

        But if you keep Fyfe's score
        91 + Pendle (IF) 150 = 241

          Nick · 24/04/2017 at 15:44

          Not liking my chances….Lets say Adams and Merrett hit 120 each, i would need pendels to hit 140+

            LoganJosh7 · 24/04/2017 at 16:38

            keep fyfes score – i doubt zerrett and adams will score 210 plus between them

              Van Djik · 24/04/2017 at 18:26

              Adams average is 115. Zerretts average is 114. Huge chance that the two of them will get to 210.

Top hawk · 24/04/2017 at 14:12

Still in the game mate! Butler delivers a 90 and your opponent needs 190+ to win. Its very wet in Melbourne tomorrow so there will be players who could unexpectly spud including Adams. Oliver could have an off night too. You just never know.

The Guns and Rookies are up for the fight in 2017. Hopefully all coaches stick to their plans and structures, stay disciplined, and DONT throw in the towel. Hopefully we can push to very high rankings as the season progresses. Cheers. TH

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 14:43

    There is hope there, anyone can have an off night/day. And condition can affect a lot players so there's a chance.

    This donkey won't be throwing the towel, will see it through the season. Been disciplined so far on tradings, haven't been following the herds to the slaughter house of turds.

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 15:18

    True TopHawk. The weather in Melbourne tomorrow was what stopped me from putting the C on Pendles this week. Wet weather footy does not suit his precision accuracy. Catching a wet ball ain't easy like the Blues Bombers game. All sorts of weird scores could get thrown up tomorrow. I'm nervous about having Jeremy Howe this week

      BradK · 24/04/2017 at 16:38

      Moustacio is a dam good coach. I added him as a rival last year and we were both in the top twenty for weeks. Utmost rspect to someone who must do alot of research too

        INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 18:36

        I've noticed he's pretty good too BradK. He's going large again & id expect him to crack the top 100 again this week

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 15:42

Shaw Simmo Greene and Hanners which order to get in

    Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 15:46

    Hanners, Greene, Shaw, Simmo

    Kyle · 24/04/2017 at 15:47

    Greene may be spending some time on the sidelines because of a head butt…

    Hanners, shaw, then watch greene

      Kyle · 24/04/2017 at 15:52

      Scratch that, greene is cleared

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 16:03

    that's the way I thought hanners shaw greene then simmo

Kyle · 24/04/2017 at 15:45

Marc murphy set to miss 2 months with torm miniscs. A lot worse than the first thought

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 16:09

    where from kyle

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 16:11

    Might give Pickett a reprieve

      Kyle · 24/04/2017 at 16:22

      Im a bit confused now…herald sun says murphy TBC but on my news feed says hes gone for 2 month…hmm

    HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 16:45

    He's in my draft team as well along with Gawn Lewis Cognilio McVeigh yes the last 2 I knew where injured but still it's carnage. Luckily have none of them in normal coach

    Danners · 24/04/2017 at 18:02

    Hearing he should play next week

    Northernsoul74 · 24/04/2017 at 18:41

    I don't have him but I'd wait for confirmation from the club.

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 15:56

Haven,t seen Keen – Sarah from S.A or One Touch Wonder for a while enjoy their educational banter gives us good ideas all three are good reads

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 15:59

Haven,t seen Keen but clueless Sarah from S A or One Touch Wonder for ages enjoy their educational banter

SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 16:27

Rewards has been paid slowly with the likes of Laird, Heater, Simmo, Hanners and Crouch. Just need Trealor and Priddis to lift up their game.

While those guys are improving i have JJK and Buddy who i need to bounce back. Been really patient with my premos/keepers apart from St Nick who i traded out for Buddy thinking he was gonna be out for at least 4 weeks. Been disciplined of not chasing players who's been scoring big the likes of Smurf, Swallow, Yeo, Matera and etc.

I need to start planning on getting a few premo after Round 6 and hope there's a few good downgrade Rookies up ahead.

    Kyle · 24/04/2017 at 16:57

    Is laird really a slow reward? Has been one of the best down back this year so far.

    As for franklin and JJK, both are KPP and have up an down games. We chose these players knowing this and imo, JJK has done me very well so far. Franklin will score better when sydney start winning some games.

      SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 17:10

      Laird had a big score in Rd 1 of 147 then Rd 2 76 and Rd 3 of 86. Last week and this week 100 odd points that's slowly rewarding of staying firm with him. You're right about buddy and JJK being KPP there's an up and down with them. I expected that, I'm just hoping they'll get going up again. Those two will remain in my team til the end of the season unless they are injured.

        Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 19:09

        Laird averaging 105. I will take that any day of the week.

          SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 19:17

          So do I Top Gun. Just got worried when he got two sub 90s in two weeks. TBH i take any 80+ ave in the back line.

Jess_Coach · 24/04/2017 at 16:30

Yeah. Think we all can agree sarah had a few predictions last year that were spot on.

    BradK · 24/04/2017 at 16:30

    I even miss one touch wonder lol

      INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 17:38

      He might not have found a shark move yet!

Andy · 24/04/2017 at 17:29

Heppell or Dusty as C

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 17:36

    Tough one!!

    Happell not that consistent. Dusty was in doubt for tonight's game carrying a groin injury.

    Toss of a coin for me and hope for the best.

      HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 17:41

      Dusty

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 19:09

    Heppell. Not sure how Dusty's body is travelling.

Plodder · 24/04/2017 at 17:35

Dusty out! Tigers not prepared to risk him tonight, official announcement due 6.25pm all media.

    Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 17:39

    How do you know

    Dutch · 24/04/2017 at 18:08

    afl website just names final teams with no late changes …..
    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-04-24/final-teams

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 18:10

    Good one Plodder…..why dont you just Plodder off with those fake rumours.

    Pman · 24/04/2017 at 18:38

    Ridiculous and attention seeking comment. It;s 6:35 and he's been named and not a single news site is reporting otherwise……Goose.

Holty · 24/04/2017 at 18:28

Who has Oliver? I thought the idea of this league was selecting only guns and rookies. Wasnt Oliver a midpricer?

Adsy · 24/04/2017 at 18:28

Treloar… should I hold or look at upgrading prior to Anzac Day? Looking at Zac Merrett. I know it's sideways but even if Treloar scores 100 he will go down approx 22k. 27 trades left. Thoughts?

    Derek · 24/04/2017 at 18:32

    No

    INPieman · 24/04/2017 at 18:34

    No

    Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 18:34

    Nope

    Northernsoul74 · 24/04/2017 at 18:38

    It doesn't matter if he goes down in price if you don't trade him.

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 18:55

    Definitely NO! You should be looking in bringing in a premo by upgrading one your cash cow rookie, not trading a premo for a premo unless in LTI.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 19:11

    Please trade. I need a big score from him.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 20:07

    A big no will average 105 plus

    Joe. · 25/04/2017 at 10:56

    Ask yourself – is the reason you picked him five weeks ago still relevant? (hint: the answer is yes). You have to hold. No guarantee the trade will have any meaningful effect on points.

HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 18:32

My Kitchen Rules is on the main channel instead of the footy? The worlds gone mad. Who the hell is running channel 7 without knowing i am going to say that whoever it is has been neutered.

Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 18:33

Dusty is NOT a late out

Pman · 24/04/2017 at 18:36

Ridiculous and attention seeking comment. It;s 6:35 and he's been named and not a single news site is reporting otherwise……Goose.

    Pman · 24/04/2017 at 18:39

    Ignore the above as I didn't post it against the correct comment,

Bossiso · 24/04/2017 at 18:48

Who do you reckon gets over the line from here.
I have Treloar, Grundy and Pendles vs 140 points and WHE.
I'm thinking I should get up from here.

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 19:03

    Hmmm!!

    By going at current form with your 3 players, I'd say you will get over the line by miles. However the condition for tomorrows game might play a factor and Cox may steal some points of Grundy.

    I do think you will win though.

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 19:08

    You know you will win mate! You will smash it. Treloar, Grundy and Pendles will conservatively score 300 between them whilst your rival will be lucky to get another 90 out of WHE. You will probably win by 100+. Cheers

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 19:12

    You easily.

    Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 19:18

    You're a moral

Derek · 24/04/2017 at 19:51

Who is Melb #3 Ruckman? Looks like he might get a game soon.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 20:02

    filipovic

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 20:07

    The Tank should go big tonight.

    And hands up to those who brought Spencer in this week.

      hedski · 24/04/2017 at 22:30

      The Nank is just a madman tackler, wants to kill anyone he gets his hands on.

        SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 23:33

        I'm seeing a pattern with Dees, stay clear from ruckman with beards and any name with Smith.

          neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:48

          good call

        Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 10:29

        Taps ball to opposition, gets made and activates berserker rage, wins ball back.

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 20:39

    Jack Watts?

    The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 21:00

    Haha….. I only jumped on the website to see if anyone had noticed Spencer getting a bit injured, should have known you'd spot it Derek!
    I nearly brought him in for Taranto this week, glad I didn't, he looks sore.

tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 19:59

I like the look of this guy Neal-Bullen. Another great start in this game. His D/E is a bit dodgy, but he gets sh-tloads of the pill.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 20:11

    south aussie got shitloads in tac too tutored by Steven Stretch and played all junior footy with his boy also at Melbourne like a new dynasty have you got any playing TH

      tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 20:33

      Something special about that kid. I have the Butler and the Tank onfield tonight.

    The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 21:29

    He would have been a nice sneaky midpricer to start with…anyone start with him?

SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 20:31

Liking the look of Hibberd, will be on my watch list. Looks like he's playing the same role when he was at the Dons

Was gonna start with him this season if he was available for round 1.

    SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 22:34

    Hampton > Hibberd will only cost about 60k or so.
    Will be a great pickup.

    SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 22:53

    Hampton > Hibberd will be a popular move the week after next. Will only cost 80k odd.

      Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 23:01

      Hibberd looked awesome tonight. Please however remember that it was his first AFL game for a year and a half, and he's also had an interrupted preseason. Because of that, I definitely would wait until he's on the bubble. That said, at $400K he is a massive risk and cashing in a fattened cow to him means you consider him a Keeper.
      It's a tough one.

        SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 23:12

        Totally agree to both SF4 and Rocksta. I'd wait another week still cash to be made on Hampton and if anyone is considering of bringing in Hibberd he'll have to be a keeper.

        IMO he's a keeper for mine, was a proven premo in the past and playing the role where he left off In saying that, still need to see one more game.

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 23:05

    Don't forget when he was at the Dons Hibberd used to spud it up too. Is a low price though.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2017 at 22:13

    Gotta remember though, he's had a long history of Hamstring, Calf and Archilles issues.

DefyingMadness · 24/04/2017 at 20:35

Rance is worrying me hasn't done much this year

    SirSamuel016 · 24/04/2017 at 20:39

    Same here. I'm hoping he can turn it around, but for me there may soon be a time where I'll have to pull the trigger and trade him out. I want to conserve my trades but at the same time I don't a guy I paid the bigger money out for to continually underperform.

      DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 20:47

      Rance has games where he is known to have 40-50 pt quarters his specialty is hard ball gets in contested situations, spoils and good de %

      Just needs to bloody find the ball 12 more times in the 2nd half and will score 80+ after a crap start.

        The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 21:22

        Never had him. Always had him in that "Josh Gibson" category.
        Capable of 140 and 60.

          Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 10:28

          Who cares? Only total points for the season matter. The reason not to pick Rance was that he was overpriced, not that he couldn't be a top defender.

DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 20:37

Rance 4 hb 75% de with 2 F/A for 29 sc is a joke right?
I have the bastard and he is simply playing shite, should be on 15 sc max

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 20:51

    I agree. Bloody ridiculous.

    Bernie Vince going at 55% with 10 pozzies , 1 tackle, 1 mark, no frees against, and 19 Supercoach points for his efforts.

    Alex Rance going at 75% with 4 pozzies, (all handballs), 0 kicks, 0 tackles, 0 marks, 2 frees against and has 29 Supercoach points for his efforts.

    Hmmmmm

      CDS · 24/04/2017 at 20:54

      All vince's possessions going backwards…scores less

Iamme · 24/04/2017 at 20:39

I will be looking at Hibbert for maybe next week…He's is a fallen Premo and is so far looking the goods tonight….If he keeps this form up one to seriously consider.

Joshua · 24/04/2017 at 20:41

If this continues looks like I'll be getting dusty for a good price in two or three weeks 🙂

redgumwon · 24/04/2017 at 20:43

Anyone else finding that the Supercoach Classic and Draft games are taking forever to access? I'm finding it won't load of takes forever to load

    redgumwon · 24/04/2017 at 22:11

    Herald Sun Supercoach game is bullshit I can't even access it now being trying for 10 to 15 minutes now after the game to get in

    SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 22:35

    It tends to happen when there is a game on.

    SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 23:23

    That's why i deleted the damn app happens too often. I use the website now, had no problem so far.

      redgumwon · 25/04/2017 at 08:17

      I don't have the app just online with the good old computer. Never happened last year but every round this year it's happened. It's making the experience this year really suck. I think they may even be locking out games faster than last year

Iamme · 24/04/2017 at 21:08

My trades for next week Hibbert for Marchbank and Black for Roughy….. Will still leave me with 25 trades.

    The Ranger · 24/04/2017 at 21:19

    Nah mate, wait a week on that Hibberd trade.

      Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 21:24

      Yeah I agree. You wanna give him at least another week to make sure it wasn't a fluke.

    HowiePhucter · 24/04/2017 at 21:26

    Agree hold for another week

      Hubba · 24/04/2017 at 22:19

      Yep agreed… just ask those who drafted Spencer

    Brian · 24/04/2017 at 21:42

    The Essendon players all went big in their 1st game back but have fallen away very quickly. Caution advised

    Bossiso · 24/04/2017 at 22:36

    Hold a week on both those trades.
    Hibberd could get injured.
    Black may not be in the Cats top 22 yet.

      jonny · 24/04/2017 at 23:52

      Anyone could get injured Bossiso. That is not a reason not to trade him in. You shouldn't trade him in now because he hasn't played 2 games.

    Tiger · 25/04/2017 at 09:04

    Agree with Brians comments. Personally I think there poor trades, wait until something better comes along because I don't rate hibberd and black as has no job security.

    Joe · 25/04/2017 at 10:44

    Black had a good game, but remember Geelong clearly preferred Parsons over him. If you're doing it for the cash, fine.

    As Geelong fan, I liked some of what I saw from him. I want to see it again next week before I'm convinced.

hedski · 24/04/2017 at 21:30

Not sure I'd be in a hurry to trade out rednut oliver neil , little beast.

    Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 22:39

    Agreed.
    He's an in and under and doesn't look like slowing down any time soon.
    I don't have him but if I did, I'd start considering him as my M8 Keeper, or very last trade at the very least.

      Captain Risky · 24/04/2017 at 22:53

      Thinking he might just stay in my side, avg 115 after 5, future star… as a tigers supporter he went just a bit to good tonight.

      5-0 Go Tigers.. Might as well party while the going is good!!

        neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:14

        congrats my friend good side now but so are dees c u in the finals

      Northerner · 25/04/2017 at 05:37

      He's my second highest average mid. If he did not get that throw called against him in the last quarter it would have been a net extra 10pts for the contested ball get and clearance so would have had 125 for the night.

        Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 10:26

        Yes, when he stops throwing the ball things will improve…

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:12

    HAVING 2ND THOUGHTS just want hanners but may have to settle for greene cheers and good luck

SCdonkey · 24/04/2017 at 21:30

On that 3rd I saw Butler got two -3. What was it for? He has not given any Frees for the game. I'm puzzled!!!

    DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 22:10

    yeah saw that he scored 0 for that whole 3rd qtr
    Finished on 60 pre scaling he deserves 66

Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 21:52

Butler needs to kick a match winner here

    Nick · 24/04/2017 at 22:00

    bloody caddy nicked it off him

    Weasel · 24/04/2017 at 23:41

    Rioli 7 kicks, 1.2 and 92. Butler did the heavy lifting earlier and scored 30 less….

Youngy · 24/04/2017 at 22:08

TIGERS!!!!! 5 WINS!!!!

    tophawk · 24/04/2017 at 22:09

    Tiger Tuff! Great win mate

    Ja191 · 24/04/2017 at 22:10

    UP THE TIGES

    DavidSA · 24/04/2017 at 22:11

    Won't beat Crows with low scoring Tiges need to kick 100+ pts

      Youngy · 25/04/2017 at 09:14

      Wouldn't be so sure about that.

        Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 10:25

        … lol.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:17

    too many tiger supporters here I am going to bed to watch the 64 grand final again

    BockChoy · 24/04/2017 at 23:23

    SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 22:38

    You should get over the line

    Top Gun · 24/04/2017 at 23:08

    You

hedski · 24/04/2017 at 22:26

Great game.

    neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:19

    we lost grrrrr don't talk to me im grumpy

      Captain Risky · 24/04/2017 at 23:21

      Oliver went alright though, Gun!

bigdaddy · 24/04/2017 at 22:36

180 infront vs treloar and whe.. who wins?

    Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 22:43

    Logic would suggest that you lose, but the way Trealor has been disposing of the pill coupled with the fact that the rain will not suit WHE's game puts you right in it.
    I can't wish you good luck as I have both of those players in my team and am projected for 2300 plus.

    Finnius123 · 24/04/2017 at 22:43

    Probably reload and WHE

marcusproudson · 24/04/2017 at 22:43

So community.. need to make up 295 points with Taylor Adams, grundy and McGrath. The inclusion of cox really makes me nervous for grundys score. What do you think

    Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 22:47

    It's going to be a close one. Thats why we play the game anyhow so enjoy.

frogger · 24/04/2017 at 23:05

Just here to apologize to INPieman, who I'm pretty sure I'm up against in JR Cashie 2, for the extremely lucky ride I've had so far this week. It doesn't always come down to skill, else the result would be the other way around, you'd think.

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 07:16

    Oh boy you are having a good week frogger. I'm going ok this week but your projected to absolutely blow the roof off the joint & leave me at the bottom of the ladder at 0-3. I ran into the wrong bloke this week. Well done on your week. Your unique players have really rewarded you. A good day from your Pies players & you might have a shot at the weekly. Best of luck

    Valens_FC · 25/04/2017 at 07:31

    I'm in the same league and much more lucky – winning head to heads with a crap team. Your team is actually really well structured so not lucky in my view. Pieman does seem to run into the high scorers every week though!

      INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:21

      I sure am Valens. Just the luck of the draw at the end of the day. Hopefully fortunes will change. A couple of years go I was 0-5 in a league choc full of guns & I won the flag with awesome trades that worked out. So there is hope

    Sassy foods · 25/04/2017 at 08:41

    What are we talking frogger?

      INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:49

      Well done on your rank Sassy. You are kicking ass. Frogger aka (M Gayfer Allstars) is projected for a mammoth 2465. He's having an awesome week

        INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:52

        He's 2k with Treloar Adams Howe WHE & Broomhead come

        Sassy foods · 25/04/2017 at 12:26

        2465 is epic. All the best for the last game. Hopefully the weather fines up, the rest of my blokes are real dry trackers.

      frogger · 25/04/2017 at 21:39

      Ended up on 2,461 and 3rd for the round. Absolutely gobsmacked…

        whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 22:38

        WoW

Rocksta · 24/04/2017 at 23:06

I reckon you are home.

Tommy · 24/04/2017 at 23:21

How are my chances that pendles with the C on him and WHE can make up 342 pts?

    BockChoy · 24/04/2017 at 23:26

    You would need WHE to get 100+… depends on how tight the Bombers play – if the games opens up then WHE may get some space and tear it up.

    Hubba · 24/04/2017 at 23:41

    The odds are not in your favour sad to say it…

    Ben · 25/04/2017 at 00:03

    All depends on pendles

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:23

    I'd say your going to need a 140+ game from Pendles. Which isn't out of the question. But I'd say your up against it clawing back that deficit

    Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 09:55

    Pendles median score on Anzac Day: 130 x 2 = 260

    Just need 82 from WHE. Easily achievable.

    Boltons Blues · 25/04/2017 at 10:25

    Proven Anzac Day performer ol mate pendles, can fire in a big way today
    It's going to be wet, so watch the class shine (carton supporter)

SF4 · 24/04/2017 at 23:23

Hampton > Hibberd looking like a good move in 2 weeks time.

    Just Saying · 24/04/2017 at 23:35

    Double up with SPP to Myers in 2 weeks
    Hampton to Hibberd

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:28

    Hibbo looks like a nice cheap option. But historical number suggest he's a 85 – 90 point type player. That was just a good game for him IMO. You could do worse. But I'd suggest having another look first. Take into consideration he has a low ceiling whereas a player like Shaw can go massive

      Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 09:53

      Well, hit 96 as a 23 yo. Then had some injury and scandal affected seasons. If fit and a clean slate I can see him at 95+ again. The downside is he was injured in pre-season, usually a red flag for me. But at 400k it would be very hard to lose cash on him, worst comes he is a luxury upgrade after full premo.

neil Demons Delight · 24/04/2017 at 23:24

with oliver doing so well cant cull him so goodbye hanners and Shaw.. Task now is Greene or Simmo would have been so easy if Oliver spuds it no Gawn or Spencer this kids good welcome M8

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/04/2017 at 23:37

    He looked bloody awesome
    Just wills himself to get the pill, so clean too considering he has played 18 games!
    Treloar take note.

    Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 06:04

    That's a joke yea?
    If not, you'll be culling Hanners and Shaw whilst the rest of Australia is trading them in over the next weeks.
    I'm still going with you are joking.

      John James · 25/04/2017 at 09:10

      In a earlier post, I think Neil was going to trade Oliver out for Hanners or Shaw or something along those lines.

    Joe · 25/04/2017 at 10:50

    Wait … what? Trading out Hanners and Shaw is madness.

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 11:39

      The brownlow boy is correct but not out hanners and Shaw out for .Still think Hanners is a better choice than Oliver going forward but happy to be proven wrong similar price now and no GAWN OR SPENCER tough job… Shaw Hanners and Greene next upgrades

marcusproudson · 24/04/2017 at 23:33

Sharing ruck duties is a bad sign. The only game grundy hasn't tonned up was round 1 when cox played

Jonathan · 25/04/2017 at 00:04

Should we still buy Oliver even though Melbourne are without a key ruckman?

    Randomcliche2 · 25/04/2017 at 00:33

    Tough call, will be in the 500's next week competing with the likes of JPK, Hanners, Treloar, Priddis for your hard earns. Depends on how long specer is out for. Even then, most of the coin has been made….unless you think he is dead set going +600k….I think there are/will be others that offer a better risk reward trade off. But then again, I started Armitage over Oliver #2020whoops

      John James · 25/04/2017 at 09:04

      Oliver will be a keeper as a M8,yet to score under a hundred points,although I have had him from the start,with the intention of keeping him just for that.

    Tibor · 25/04/2017 at 02:02

    Probably too late now, missed the boat. Great pick for those that snapped him up under 400k, well done a mid price risk that paid off

    Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 09:49

    Ship. Sailed.

    Brian · 25/04/2017 at 12:50

    No. He is a super coach beast but is a 2nd year player who played 13 games last year. I'm tipping his tank will be on empty half way through the year.
    If you own him obviously keep him until signs of dropping off but definitely do not trade him in for 500k. The same price as hanners.

Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 00:42

Are there any good mid/fwd upgrade targets WITHOUT the rd 11 bye? At the moment I can't afford to get any more in at all with that bye – but every single bloody fallen premo has that bye! Any ideas?

NutSack · 25/04/2017 at 02:49

Norf Melbourne really need to start walking a dog to get some practise holding a lead. LOL! Pack o flogs

Ap3x · 25/04/2017 at 03:36

You're all gayyyyyy

AuroraBorealis?! · 25/04/2017 at 05:44

Looks like im going to be in my first draw ever in the guns and rookies league, ever since the hawks v eagles game we've been on the same score with only mutuals left to play

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:32

    Well you won't need to worry about percentage for the rest of the home & away season

Mike · 25/04/2017 at 07:33

Need Grundy to score 50 or less to win cash league. Grrrrrrrrr

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 08:32

    I don't like your chances Mike. I've run into the wrong opponents in several leagues this week. Projected score is 2380 & looking like I will be rolled in 4 leagues

      BlueNath · 25/04/2017 at 08:57

      That is unlucky! I thought I was doing ok with a projected 2354. Maybe my score will only be par this week?

INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 07:49

The 4 most heavily bought into players this week were: (non rookies)
15K said yes to Yeo the Yo Yo (And he did his Yo Yo man thing & burnt new owners)
15K got onto Matera & he went back to his usual self & dropped a turd
7K got on Marc Murphy after multiple price rises & paid the price (also might miss weeks if the rumours are true)
And 5,331 saw a ton from Jake Spencer & said that's good enough & now they are stuffed

Savage lessons delivered from the Gods this week

Mitch King 123K Ruck Fwd for the Dees might be on the horizon in weeks to come. But he's only played 1 game in the VFL having come back from a knee reco. Big decisions for the Dees on who Rucks for them in the coming weeks

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 08:56

    Great call Pies another you could add is Hibberd great game but his Essendon SC form was irrelevant even for an all Australian.. Mitch King is a tad underdone to debut more likely Pederson or Sam Frost but the kid can play and second efforts are good.. Filipovic anyone/? gawn likes him The lessons learnt Pies are invaluable remember Waite expect a backlash over Hibberd but people do jump on too quick Hannan Cheers

      INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 09:34

      I won't be jumping on Hibbo this week. Sure many punters will. The lesson is do your research before you bring in someone suspect

      Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 09:47

      I will be looking seriously at Hibberd when on the bubble. Upgrades are tough this year, a 400k D6 averaging 90 could be really handy.

        INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 10:30

        True Moustachio. But not till he's on the bubble. Going early on Spencer has burnt many badly

        neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 11:24

        agree 90s D8 would be good Looked preseason at Kelly for that reason Slight chance another bomber McGrath or Otten could fill that role would be handy

      SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 10:13

      I'm very keen at jumping on Hibberd. Like what Moustachio said he had an interrupted season with the Dons where he ave 85, for two season before that he ave 90+.

      Backline are tough with Rookies this year, any chance or opportunity presents itself for a cheap upgrade like Hibberd who can ave 90+ is handy to have.

      I am aiming at getting my Backline filled first with Premo and Keepers before any line. My backline so far are Heater, Laird, Simmo, Lloyd, Otten, Hampton, Newman and Stewart.

        INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 10:35

        Nice backline donkey. Did you start with Marchbank?

          SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 10:41

          Yes I did INP culled him early for Lloyd. Needed a player who can score me 80+.

          Couldn't stand any longer having 3 rookies onfield at the backline anymore, my premos were underperforming.

            INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 11:15

            I share your pain Donkey with Simmo. Picked him as someone rock solid who will go 95+. Didn't see the role change coming. He won't be pod anymore either

              SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 11:52

              Agree INP. Didn't see that myself MBank and Plowman seem to be taking that Job away from him.

              I'd still be happy if Simmo ave 90+ by end of season. Hibberd is/has been on my radar before the season started so will most likely will be in my team. For the last spot in backline keeping an eye on Doc, Adams, JJ and Montagna.

                INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 13:02

                Plowman was te one I really didn't see coming!!! Prick

    BlueNath · 25/04/2017 at 09:04

    Plenty of warnings on here not to jump on these players and chase points. Worse would be if those same people jump off guys like Hanners to jump on Murphy… ouch

      Kev · 25/04/2017 at 09:31

      Yeah it's probably too late for jumping off Hanner for Murphy.
      I did the smart thing and made that trade after round 1, since then Murphy has averaged 120 including this weeks 69 and increased by 140k, Hanner has averaged 97.5 including this weeks 112 and lost 80k.
      4 weeks after the trade I'm 300k better off, I've scored 90 extra points and I'm not stuck with a fallen 600k+ mid who is genuinely struggling in a losing team.

        Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 09:40

        I reckon Hanners will outscore Murphy from here on in.
        Swans are getting their players back and will start winning again once they are match fit.
        Murphy has served you well, but for those people whom don't have either, I'd be trading in Hanners next week not Murphy.

          neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 09:53

          Probably correct Rocky but for me only one mid left and that's for Pendles I will be looking at shoring up defense with Adams doc and shaw problem is DEF Rookies are travelling well Otten McGrath Hampton maybe all good so are the el cheapo rucks Witts Sandi Pruess and Nank ONLY one line left ROO standbye son good call though Hanners and Shaw ripe

        INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 11:13

        I looked at Hanners upcoming draw & brought him in this week Kev. See ya JOM

    Joe · 25/04/2017 at 10:33

    Could not agree more re impulse-trading. I've done it in the past and am determined not to do so this year. Also, trying to remember that I only need 18 good scores each week, not 22. That can change the urgency of some decisions …

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 11:36

    Agree 100%. Luckily avoided all those traps. I guess thats the benefit of not trading too much early. I will be upgrading my first ultra premo this week.

    I think the time has come to trade in Dan Hannebery. At $540K, that is an absolute gift. Its now or never. The bloke is only 26 years old which means he fits my general youth game philosophy. (I always field youngish teams with up and coming players) He is now at his absolute prime. He started slowly and struggled for form, but he is now ready to start producing ultra premo output.

    David Swallow OUT and Daniel Hannebery IN. Welcome to the Tophawks team Dan. And David, thank you for your efforts, but your services are no longer required.

    Still have $90K in the kitty after the upgrade.

    Lastly, Micheal Hibberd could be a tantalising upgrade target for Caleb Marchbank in the next few weeks. Cheers

      INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 11:50

      No doubt many are eyeing off Marchbank to Hibbo. Will be popular. I saw a form turn & grabbed Hanners this week Tophawk at hopefully his season low price. We desparetly need value this season

    BockChoy · 25/04/2017 at 12:58

    I traded Roughy and Caddy and some cash for Rocky and Yo Yo this week. Got my fingers singed on that this week but am still taking the longer term view. The other option I was looking at was Caddy + cash to get Danger but the cost didn't add up to sufficient point generation – that is, the points Danger gets still doesn't justify his price.

    Danger should fall again this week, so the time may be right to make a play!

    Derek · 25/04/2017 at 14:09

    Shaw or Simpson first?

neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 08:58

Good luck to both TOPHAWK and the BOSS .. jOCKS got his nose in front 32 but anyones game

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 10:46

    It is going down to the friggin wire again just like a few weeks ago against Shake and Bake. Looks like the weather is not going to be too bad for the big clash today. Perhaps a few showers. This should help Howe's ability to intercept mark and thus his scoring. (Good for Jock), BUT he has Grundy, who might drop some points today after the inclusion of Mason Cox (Bad for Jock). Then there is WHE who will benefit with less rain around. (Good for Jock). That said, I have Taylor Adams and Jock does not. He is the key. Whether it is wet or dry, it will not matter to him. Its simply a matter of whether he can go huge! Hoping he can produce a 130+ score. (Good for Tophawk). We both have Treloar and if he uses the pill properly today will post a decent score.

    I reckon its going to come down to the last minutes in the last quarter. Jock deservedly slight favourite ATM, but hopefully I can fight hard and well who knows? Cheers

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 11:21

      just one of many great contests by coaches who know their game and do their research last bit comes down to luck.tough one to call this one

      BrownlowBoy · 25/04/2017 at 11:22

      If the rain continues to fall, Cox will be a late out.

        Liam · 25/04/2017 at 11:54

        Think Pies will go in with more than just Darcy Moore as their tall up forward.

The benchmark · 25/04/2017 at 11:16

What's everyone projected score for the rest of the round. There will be a few good ones out there

    Lost gorilla · 25/04/2017 at 11:51

    2290 bit below par I recon

    Pablo · 25/04/2017 at 12:05

    Predicting 2331, but have 2 still to play so still could be change. Looks like i will still lose 2 of my games, but win the other 2.

    Babo · 25/04/2017 at 12:10

    Close to 2400 which should help me overtake a few.

    Thanks to $oane.

    Frankstonphil · 25/04/2017 at 12:25

    Predicted 2331 with 3 left to play. I would love Treloar to go large it would help me alot but still going to lose one of my matches.

    Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 12:59

    Finished on 2181
    Another bad week

      Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:38

      No Collingwood in your team?

    BockChoy · 25/04/2017 at 13:00

    Predicted 2250 with Pendles (C), Treloar, Adams and WHE to play.

    Iamme · 25/04/2017 at 13:49

    Projected 2276 with WHE, Adams and Treloar (capt) remaining

      Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:38

      Brave but good choice Treloar as captain

    GoPies · 25/04/2017 at 14:11

    2455

      Finnius · 25/04/2017 at 14:47

      That's huge

    Finnius · 25/04/2017 at 14:47

    2300 exactly – I reckon that will be top 10% average

    Dogs · 25/04/2017 at 15:07

    Sitting on 2224 with pendles to play, hope he goes huge

    Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:37

    Close to 2300
    1969 with Treloar Adams and WHE today

Saundo · 25/04/2017 at 13:32

Should I do something silly and trade Heppell to Merrett?

David · 25/04/2017 at 13:38

If you brought Yeo in you would me may to trade him out this week. Im predicting a big comeback against Freo. Might go head to head with Fyfe Hold if you can.

Andy · 25/04/2017 at 13:39

Is it time to trade buddy franklin or should I hold?

    Swans2012 · 25/04/2017 at 14:08

    He's a hold, no point having him for his crap scores if your not around for his good ones

    pod · 25/04/2017 at 14:15

    Swans will lift so will the Bud – hold

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 14:17

    I'm patiently waiting to get him in. Swans draw gets easier now

    Finnius · 25/04/2017 at 14:46

    Hold – should kick a bag against carlton next week

TEM · 25/04/2017 at 13:46

got 1806 with treloar, adams, grundy and WHE to play, i will be lucky to get 2200.

i cant seem to get a good run any week. always have duds. this week i have franklin, parfitt, roughead spp and butler. this year has been a new experience for me. i made two teams, team 1, was the team that i put a lot of effort into making, tons of research and is the team i expected to be good. (i usually finish in top 1000). however this year this team has been abysmal. however with my second team, it is a team filled with pods and all kinds of risk however im ranked in the top 3000. i started with players like howe, lloyd, shuey, rockliff (not huge risk), nank, jjk, higgins etc.

i guess it shows that this year is a very different year to most.

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 13:57

    You've set yourself up for a howling down there TEM, wait for it….

    pod · 25/04/2017 at 14:05

    That excludes you from any cash wins!

    Derek · 25/04/2017 at 14:12

    Second team sounds like teams that started with Hall, JJ, Parker etc last year, started well but faded fast

    Hubba · 25/04/2017 at 14:54

    Big no no my man …

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 15:06

    Shades of RAJ big no no we only have one team my friend

Thebandit7 · 25/04/2017 at 14:06

Left Newman on the field and had williamson as my emergency, when will his score get added to my team? In a tight match and just hoping I haven't stuffed it up!!

    marcusproudson · 25/04/2017 at 14:11

    I think is gets added once the player with the zero has finished their game.? So should be already added to your total

    marcusproudson · 25/04/2017 at 14:11

    I did the loophole with JOM and my emergency has been added to my score

    Cold_Case · 25/04/2017 at 14:12

    Should already be added because Sydney has played

Juzzy · 25/04/2017 at 14:15

I could be wrong but did anyone else see Lekdog playing for Richmond last night ?

Pretty sure he was wearing number 31.

    Don't Blush Baby · 25/04/2017 at 15:19

    Lekdog Markov has a bit of a ring to it ,ha

    Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:35

    Porn star moustache definitely back in fashion

Powerage · 25/04/2017 at 14:41

Heppell to Merrett? Thoughts?

    Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 14:55

    I changed Heppell to JPK for more consistency and cos JPK was cheaper than normal. I still think it is prolly a good move cos I was always going to do that. But how I wish I didn't on a day like today. Although your going Merret so still get to enjoy watching as an Essendon supporter i'm guessing.
    Prolly wisest to hold they would say in here. If Heppell has a bad game today though you will be punished and will have to keep. So Only if you have lots of trades I guess.

      Powerage · 25/04/2017 at 14:59

      I have used 6 trades already

        Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 15:12

        Yeah too many trades Probably. I've used 7 lol. Way too many. But going aggressive I am because of a shit start . unlike others i wont trade during bye rounds if I'm no where near leaders by then. Will just go for league so I'm not too worried.

    Hubba · 25/04/2017 at 16:47

    What did you do in the end?

      Powerage · 26/04/2017 at 08:58

      Yeah I went Merrett but not too dissapointed as think he will have a better year, didn't cost me any games, but Grundy and WHE did !

David · 25/04/2017 at 15:47

Grundy in your undy 5 SC points close to quarter time. #^%%$%!

    The BONT · 25/04/2017 at 15:55

    13 SC at quarter time

      David · 25/04/2017 at 16:33

      Much better The BONT

The BONT · 25/04/2017 at 15:56

Daneil Wells got -1 SC at quarter time

    Don't Blush Baby · 25/04/2017 at 15:59

    Sidebum 5,WHE – 8 GRRR

Ja191 · 25/04/2017 at 15:56

is hoskin elliot even playing?

sick of him · 25/04/2017 at 15:57

Pack ya bags Bucks you're GONE!!

hedski · 25/04/2017 at 15:59

Good to see Treloar has picked up his efficiency.
(I don't think he has kicked it yet)

    DavidSA · 25/04/2017 at 16:35

    Lots of tackles too

Don't Blush Baby · 25/04/2017 at 16:00

How are all the peeps now that they traded Heppel ?

DefyingMadness · 25/04/2017 at 16:22

Zerret getting robbed

    The BONT · 25/04/2017 at 16:25

    40% efficency

      DavidSA · 25/04/2017 at 16:35

      Yeah check de %

gator59 · 25/04/2017 at 16:26

what the fu ck is wrong with pendles!!!

    David · 25/04/2017 at 16:38

    Must be that achilles/calf issue he had in the preseason. Just not moving like he normally does.Hopefully I'm wrong and he gets going in the 2nd half.

    Derek · 25/04/2017 at 16:47

    Wells taking a lot of the centre bounces.

    This is why I didn't start with him, waiting to see what the Wells effect would be. Adams more forward as well

Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 16:32

About to lose my league game

Adams and WHE need to score 13 points or less in second half

    Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 16:46

    Good luck with that

      Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 17:20

      And it's gone
      If I had have listened to tophawk, I would have won

Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:34

Treloar repaying the faith. 82 at half time

    Captain Risky · 25/04/2017 at 16:38

    about bloody time….

    Iamme · 25/04/2017 at 16:40

    stoked so far!… as I chanced him for capt this week

      Derek · 25/04/2017 at 16:45

      Nice

      Top hawk · 25/04/2017 at 16:45

      Nice work Iamme. He still has to nail the second half though. Good to see his DE is up to scratch so far. He better keep it up and tonne up big. Cheers

Pie Luver · 25/04/2017 at 16:43

TRELOARSOME!!!

That's what you get for trading out an uber premo f*cknuts!

    Northernsoul74 · 25/04/2017 at 16:50

    Only 1 half but he's a gun and was always going to come good.

Derek · 25/04/2017 at 16:45

21 ahead at start. I have McGrath, they have WHE. Somehow they are both on 34 at half time.

Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 16:47

Anyone have accurate news on Murphy injury?

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:17

    Seems like Carlton are putting out a bit of Trumps "Fake News"

Northernsoul74 · 25/04/2017 at 16:52

He's been carrying an injury for a few weeks now. Not sure why you'd stick the captaincy on him.

    Joshua · 25/04/2017 at 16:55

    Cause I'm stupid

David · 25/04/2017 at 17:07

Cox is going to score more than Grundy F! Back to the bad old days ball watching

Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 17:13

They are at it again. Treloar has done nothing wrong has actually been kicking arse and he has been getting minus scores. He's not doing anything wrong FFS.

    Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 17:27

    On 107 at 3QT – I would be pretty happy with that

      Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 18:24

      Yeah was going off my face a little too much.

        Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 18:53

        I would cop a 140 from him hey ahahah

        Noirlust · 25/04/2017 at 21:47

        I notice there seems to be a decay of points. Im not sure to what extent or how it works.
        Watched it on Oliver, losing 1 piint at a time and he sat the last few minutes on the bench if the game.

          whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 22:37

          May have been scaling, or correction of point awards.

from outside 50 · 25/04/2017 at 17:26

Which of these players is more important to trade out

Jaeger, Swallow or Rough

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 17:29

    All of them

      DavidSA · 25/04/2017 at 18:01

      Why u still have all 3
      Throwing ur season in the bin mate

    Northerner · 25/04/2017 at 19:51

    I believe worth holding Swallow till his bye. There's a reason he failed last 2 weeks. Played injured and then was not 100% this week either but with all their outs he had to play. He could pull out a couple of tons on the trot and then he'll make a little more cash for you. And his poor score of 55 is an OK score for the rookie you'll replace him with.

DefyingMadness · 25/04/2017 at 17:26

This is what I get for going Higgins to Zerret. Everything has gone badly today except for Treloar.

    Thomas · 25/04/2017 at 17:58

    That's what ya get for trading in a druggo

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:18

    Good trade DM

    whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:37

    He'll come good.

hedski · 25/04/2017 at 17:30

For those that went Pendles Captain…. Ha I went Rooey.

    Liam · 25/04/2017 at 18:17

    Was going to win all my league games, now ill be lucky to win any. Gonna score 2200 🙁

      Derek · 25/04/2017 at 18:23

      Who was your VC

Steeeve · 25/04/2017 at 17:51

WHE was never gonna be good in the wet. Avoids contact at all costs. Finally come alive this last quarter and still struggling. The Tippa chase down was a squirt of piddle on the turd sandwich he's serving up.

gator59 · 25/04/2017 at 17:54

go and get fu cked pendlebury

    Northernsoul74 · 25/04/2017 at 17:58

    Classy.

    Steeeve · 25/04/2017 at 18:03

    See you in a couple of weeks Pendles. I'd like to pay about $540,000 if I may.

      Denis · 25/04/2017 at 18:10

      Yep once he gets on top of his injury he'll be ripe for the picking. Will drop $40K this week alone and will have another monster BE!

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:21

        Been waiting for a drop off, wasn't sure it would happen.

          Steeeve · 25/04/2017 at 18:48

          Always does, even to the great ones. I picked him up for about $540K last year

          neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 18:57

          is it worth trading Oliver to pendles then both at 540 touch and go that one

            hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:58

            Na mate keep rednut get Pendles another way.

      Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 18:56

      Agreed.
      I'm sure he's carrying an injury.
      Needs a week off IMO. That said, I don't have him so easy to say. I reckon he'll be in my team in 2 weeks ( 3 Max). He won't stay cheap for long.

DavidSA · 25/04/2017 at 17:59

NOT SINCE Rd3 OF SEASON 2012!!!

Leave a comment if you know what this means

    DefyingMadness · 25/04/2017 at 18:14

    Since Pendles went under 80?

      DavidSA · 25/04/2017 at 18:28

      Indeed Madness

    who cares · 25/04/2017 at 18:15

    You got laid?

    Top Gun · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

    You have been to Kittens?

Joshua · 25/04/2017 at 18:04

Wells stuffed up cpt Pendles.

    Derek · 25/04/2017 at 18:16

    Wells effected adams also. Adams spent a lot of time in forward line and Wells in guts. Think we will see a lot more of that. Adams and Pendles rotating between centre and forward.

Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 18:04

How are all the Treloar Haters going?
How many of you traded him out? Even when he wasn't scoring that well, he was still getting 30+ possies.
Guns don't just stop being guns! 140 plus of the best!

    Hooksjpg · 25/04/2017 at 18:26

    No where to be seen.

      Who Cares · 25/04/2017 at 18:32

      Probably out getting laid
      Can't say the same about DavisSA

richard · 25/04/2017 at 18:09

Collingwood : A team of individuals just to scared to take the game on.Surely Buckley won't last past the next 4 weeks of losses.Reckon there will be some beltings to come.No game plan,no idea by by Buckley by by by by.

    SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 18:12

    Like what I said to my work mate who's a mad fan of the Pies. Buckley did not win a Premiership as a player and never will as a coach.

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:27

    Have to disagree about no players keen to take it on, they have some exciting young fellas.
    Agree Bucks in trouble tho, when the CATTAS belt them by a hunj next week he's in a world of pain.

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 18:52

      The great Treloar for one one minute the cats dinner next minute gold

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 19:01

        I reckon Treloar will tonne up again against the cats, to no avail on the scoreboard.

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 18:38

    Agree Richard. Buckley is useless

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 18:53

      who would you like Pies..

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 19:02

        I think….Paul Roosey out of retirement, pies can afford $2mil a year.

          neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 19:47

          great call

      KiwiSaint · 25/04/2017 at 20:01

      Sir Robert has to be given a chance a true champion and great guy. Go Saints

    Kev · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

    Eddies fault as much as it is Buckley's, I mean it was Eddie that forced Nathan to do an apprenticeship under the worst coach of the post war period

Boltons Blues · 25/04/2017 at 18:13

John Barker the new coach of Collingwood, you've heard it here First Ladies and gentleman.
In other news 2305 for me this week, would've been bigger if Adams and WHE didn't stain the ol underwear

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 19:13

    Anyone is better than Buckley. Hopefully this is the realisation that should have happened years ago

      jpb · 26/04/2017 at 00:33

      He will be traded during the bye weeks

Swans2012 · 25/04/2017 at 18:20

All of a sudden after one game my 2301 goes from being average to pretty solid im thinking, not fantastic but above par I reckon.
And condolences moustachio, in trigs league you were projected before today's game to win by 100, yet somehow with peddles and whe spudding and treloar going large I nut you by 30! Ridiculous but I'll take it!!

    whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:39

    It's in the top 1%

      Swans2012 · 25/04/2017 at 22:19

      Didn't feel like it'd be anywhere near that yesterday!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/04/2017 at 18:36

Treloar and Titch go u good things!
Class is class can't loose it back Em in.
Didn't Wells make a difference to the pies scoring. Pendles and to a lesser extent Adams got the Wells treatment.

Fire sale anyone?
In no particular order:
Dusty, Murphy, bont, pendles, Zerrett, danger, shaw, Grundy, Simmo, priddus will all be alot cheaper in the next couple of weeks.

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 18:45

    I will take all bar smurph

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/04/2017 at 18:49

      Gr8 score mate.

        neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 23:09

        thx

    Liam · 25/04/2017 at 19:30

    Good win mate, thought I had you until Pendles decided to put out his worst performance in a few years.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/04/2017 at 19:42

      Yeah I think last night there was 6 points projected between us! Bloody close as with most.
      Pendles had a very rare off day definitely tipped the balance my way.

who Cares · 25/04/2017 at 18:36

Probably out getting laid

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 18:54

    looks injured

LetsGo · 25/04/2017 at 18:39

Par for this round? I got 2335, I'm thinking that's average?

    Swans2012 · 25/04/2017 at 18:45

    Above average after today, I'm thinking 2275ish par looking at my leagues

      Blaknight · 25/04/2017 at 18:51

      So 2363 is good?

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:46

    Great score this round.

    Kyle · 25/04/2017 at 20:01

    Gonna be a ot of variety this week. Before today was looking at 2300s but pendles adams WHE and grundy all had shockers. And my score plummeted. Pendles was a pretty popular captains choice and ik quite a few had adams also.

    Joe. · 25/04/2017 at 23:17

    I got 9". Is that average or should I expect responses which make me feel good about how I score?

      LetsGo · 26/04/2017 at 10:04

      On Sunday night, 2300 to 2350 was par according to majority of people on the sight, I was trying to see if it still was, clearly it's not.

David · 25/04/2017 at 18:39

I don't have Danger or Pendles Yet! Both will have big B/Es this week and maybe next. Didn't start with Gone either. My plan is starting to work (for now…)

    Northernsoul74 · 25/04/2017 at 18:44

    How far behind are you from not having them?

      David · 25/04/2017 at 19:46

      I can buy any time. Might go for Hanners first. I think Syderny are going come with a rush. The Babushka in come D+P. Had to be careful with the acronyms then. 🙂

    Neverweaken · 25/04/2017 at 20:09

    Yay! Thought I was the only one. Went Jelwood Treloar.

      David · 25/04/2017 at 20:35

      Yep me too. I was starting to panic two weeks ago though

trader · 25/04/2017 at 18:42

Is 2362 a good score for this round?

    Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 18:50

    Yup I reckon anything over 2300 is pretty good

      trader · 25/04/2017 at 18:57

      Ok thanks mate

INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 18:43

BS was made up between Fuc*ley & Penles about his second half disappearance last week. I saw him grab his right hammy when he came back on last week & couldn't run. Today he couldn't run at all. When he didn't start in the centre at the start of the game I knew I was right. All credit to Pendles for trying to play through a hammy. But what an opportunity for the non owners. Another unlucky one for me. But it happens

    Kev · 25/04/2017 at 19:18

    Lol, yes you're a very clever boy,. How're are Barrett and Long working out for ya

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 19:25

    You reckon Pendles will miss matches mate? I am a non owner and licking my chops. Getting Hanners in this week, and then will circle the likes of Pendles like a salivating shark. Will drop massive $$$ after falling 85 points below his breakeven this week of 152!! I cant wait to see his breakeven next week. 200+ I reckon.

      Moustachio · 25/04/2017 at 20:29

      His BE will be about 186, and he'll be under 600k. If he hits 125 the next 2 games he will still dip below 570k.

hedski · 25/04/2017 at 18:45

Quick scout around leagues par looking between 2160-2260, Derek and Neil well done great scores.
2252 for me, lucky to get there, Jezza Howe shout out again friggin gun.

    Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 19:03

    I love Jezza. He is a quality footballer. Takes hangers but does all the 1% ers as well.

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 19:14

    Agree. Jeremy Howe makes the Pies losses look honourable when they are not. He's a gun

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 19:39

      is he better than Labumba

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 20:05

        Ha ha.

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 19:18

    Solid score mate. My scores for the first 5 rounds have been solid without being spectacular. My 2227 was above my season average of around 2200. My consistent yet "unfashionable" scores will hopefully push me towards the 4000 mark in the overall rankings this week. Next week I want a bloody break out score!! A good way to start is by picking a winner VC. Bloody all spud efforts to date. Just as well for Dangermouse. Cheers

      hedski · 25/04/2017 at 20:09

      Yeah just can't get them all to gel Toppa, hoping Buddy and Parks can FUGGING LIFT next few weeks, Rooey cap killed me this week, first time I've forgone Danger 🙁

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 19:38

    heard a rumour howe.s coming home ah well wishfull thinking good round for Derek creams rising watch out

tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 18:49

The great JR Brumby FC pipped me at the post today to hand me my first defeat in Trig's Happy Place league this week. Jock ended up with 2242 whilst the hawks finished on 2227. Bloody Taylor Adams couldn't pull me through today. All I needed was 94 instead of a turd like 78 from him. Not to much to ask….surely!!

But Jock had spud efforts from WHE and Grundy as well. So, the better team won this week. Great game mate. Cheers

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/04/2017 at 19:28

    Managed to salute again only due to Pendles having a very rare off day. Was enough to tilt the scales in my favor. Bont was quiet too so potato/potado

    Does everyone still want a wrap up tomorrow?
    Got the feeling after the last one, bit of negative stuff may not want a wrap anymore of Trigs Happy Place?

      tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 19:42

      All good Trigger! Let your wrap up rip tomorrow. Tell it how it is, because more often than not you are spot on. Dont worry about the negative nellies out there. You always get those. Cheers mate.

      Shake n bake · 25/04/2017 at 19:43

      I ended up losing by 30! Higgins donut lost it for me! 2193 im sure Higgins would have been good for at least 80. Couldn't even make any changes with all available to me. If only l knew he wasn't going to play!!

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 20:10

        Keep that phone charged and handy Shaker.

        hedski · 25/04/2017 at 20:11

        Higgins would have probably thrown you a 29 anyways

      neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 23:14

      of course look forward to it don't be rediculas

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 19:35

    great effort hope I play you both in the finals great comp He did it to me 2 weeks ago by the same amount cheers

Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 18:49

Thinking paint the fence with Roughy and O'Meara/SPP
Thinking either Dahl/Hanners/Shaw in
Or I could do a double downgrade and get a big war chest and then go bang bang and get Pendles and other premos in future weeks

2181 this week even with some good scores but Kennedy as C cost me big time
Feel like I need to get premos in fast

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 18:56

    I am grabbing Hanners this week. At $540K you will not get him any cheaper and is a bloody steal. Straight upgrade from David Swallow. BANG!! I am doing it tonight as soon as the lock out is lifted tonight.

    Hopefully you nail the captain next week, or even better nail the VC! I am still to pick a winning VC this year. Bloody elusive. Cheers mate.

      hedski · 25/04/2017 at 19:16

      VCs!!!?..couldn't pick my nose atm.

      Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 19:18

      Lots of people will pick up Hanners so I'm going to wait for Pendles to drop in price and get him in for cheap

    Rocksta · 25/04/2017 at 19:06

    I reckon option 2.
    Big fire sale of quality premo's coming up in 2 weeks ( refer Trigger Happy post above).
    That said, which Rookies are you bringing in?

      Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 19:14

      Williamson for sure but who else is the question

        Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 19:59

        Williamson? Already hit he bubble

          Tommo09 · 25/04/2017 at 20:06

          Oh oops forgot that haha
          Who else is on the bubble this week

    Joe. · 25/04/2017 at 23:15

    Kennedy is scoring well, but watching him play leaves me very worried. The guy is struggling IMO. I will be looking to offload him in the second half of the season.

Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 18:54

What did everyone end up on? I finished with 2305 which I am pretty happy with.

    Touk tuk · 25/04/2017 at 19:00

    2317…. happy

    Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 19:04

    Same as mine 2305

      Eskimo · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

      we will get the "mode" average 🙂

    Top Gun · 25/04/2017 at 19:10

    2314. Hope to rise in the rankings a little.

    Blaknight · 25/04/2017 at 19:13

    2363

    Derek · 25/04/2017 at 19:25

    2364. A 401 pt improvement on last week.

    whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:41

    2,297

    Joe. · 25/04/2017 at 23:06

    2,391. I think I am finally learning from previous years.

    I had reasons for picking M Crouch at M8 and Lynch, and reasons for not picking Dusty and Murphy to begin with. For once I stuck to my guns and didn't burn trades. Pretty chuffed that SPP is on my bench earning money rather than on the field.

    neil Demons Delight · 25/04/2017 at 23:17

    2395 pretty happy

Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 18:55

Who would you trade out this week out of WHE and Butler?

    tophawk · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

    I would say the WHE will probably have a much higher BE than Butler and may be close to fall in price with another poor effort like today. But Butler will still make you more cash. Trade WHE if you have to. You dont have duds like JOM or D Swallow? I reckon both of these two need to be moved on before WHE. Good score too this week mate. Got 75 points more than me. Reckon you will shoot nicely up the rankings this week. Cheers

      SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 19:11

      Agree if you don't have the names of what Tophawk mentioned. I'd say WHE over Butler, I think WHE has nearly peak for culling won't generate cash as much as Butler from here.

      Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 19:29

      Cheers Tophawk. I have Swallow. Looking to go him and either WHE/butler to Macrae. I want to trade agressively this year. I am happy forfeiting an extra 3ok in cash gen if it means I can get to full premium quicker. Was having a look at last years winner's side and he was full premo by the end of the byes!

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

    WHE easy (need to see BE's)

    SF4 · 25/04/2017 at 19:07

    WHE

    whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:42

    WHE, higher BE of 69.

    Joe. · 25/04/2017 at 23:03

    WHE: has a BE of 69

    Leeds17 · 26/04/2017 at 06:03

    Parfitt is a worry too, Turner as well if you have him.

Touk tuk · 25/04/2017 at 19:02

Jamie elliot had a breakeven of 115 before todays game. Could be a good pick up after his 3rd or 4th game. Guaranteed to play is stays fit.

Thoughts community?

    Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 19:05

    Watch him be a bit more consistent before you pull the trigger. Definitely don't pick him as a bubble boy as he could easily come out with a 55 next week – scored 28 last week…. In saying that he looked very impressive today.

    Adam · 25/04/2017 at 19:06

    Exciting player but the reality is that he obviously won't be a top 10 forward and not enough fat on the bone to be a legit cash cow. So I wouldn't go that way Touk Tuk. You will just end up with another Reid or Matera.

    hedski · 25/04/2017 at 19:18

    Top 10 fwd from here onwards?

    INPieman · 25/04/2017 at 19:19

    Better than Matera. But still a heavy NO

      whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:42

      Agree!

SCdonkey · 25/04/2017 at 19:02

Well done to my opponent in The Guns and Rookies beating me by 23 points. Don't know if it was a good move trading out Hannan for McCarthy to cover Higgins donut. But good win against me.

SF4 · 25/04/2017 at 19:09

Swallow>Hanners for me this week.

Hampton>Hibberd next week.
Will keep an eye on Aaron Black, should be a decent downgrade from Eddy/Taranto.

JustAmug · 25/04/2017 at 19:11

2450…. first 2 rounds made me want to quit sitting at rank 125,000.
Premos and mids finally firing and structure working … apart from rucks 🙂 still confusing/killing me
Sure the byes will destroy me again (

    Finnius123 · 25/04/2017 at 19:26

    Thats amazing mate – pity you are ranked so low. Did you miss a round?

      JustAmug · 25/04/2017 at 20:34

      Haha Fin, it felt like it….. Just bad premo and rook choices I guess
      Traded hard early to fix it… some good, some not
      Ahhh well, overall gone now so just chase some league wins
      Good luck to you!

    KiwiSaint · 25/04/2017 at 19:46

    Great scored mate I scrapped my way to 2274 bit of a shocker

      JustAmug · 25/04/2017 at 20:36

      Still good KIWI
      Good luck for the rest of the season

      whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 20:43

      If my 2297 is in the top 1% then I'm not sure how that is a shocker.

        JustAmug · 25/04/2017 at 20:45

        ??? who said it was mate????

          whatyasmokin · 25/04/2017 at 21:13

          Kiwi on 2274!!!

    The Ranger · 25/04/2017 at 20:54

    Good onya Mug, anything above 2400 just feels crazy good eh?
    Hope it keeps going that way for ya mate.
