SuperCoach RD5: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned

What an enthralling round of footy, Community.

The Crows and Giants continue to firm as flag favourites, while Freo got up in a thriller and Hawthorn snapped its losing streak. Tigers fans are talking premierships – somewhat prematurely in my opinion – after going 5-0, and at the other end of the spectrum Sydney slumped to its fifth loss in a row. Essendon embarrassed Collingwood in the big Anzac Day clash and Nathan Buckley’s days are now surely numbered.

It was a higher scoring round of SuperCoach as many put last week’s shocker behind them to post some very respectable scores.

The Heroes

Dangerwood was in full flight for Geelong as they continued their unbeaten start to the season on Sunday. But this time it was Joel Selwood (150 SC) who stole the limelight from Patrick Dangerfield (120 SC). Selwood amassed 43 touches, including 22 contested possessions, and a goal in stunning display, while Dangerfield was sitting on only 60-odd SC points at 3QT before producing a massive final term including 2 goals.

Adelaide’s Rory Sloane (139 SC) cemented himself as the best SC midfielder of 2017 so far with another prolific outing. Racked up a monster 13 tackles to go with 30 touches and 9 clearances and is now averaging 130 per game. Port Adelaide rival Robbie Gray (139 SC) also enjoyed a splendid match. Splitting his time between forward and midfield, he snagged a lazy 5 majors to help boost his score.

Jeremy Cameron (139 SC) and Shane Mumford (126 SC) were the stars in GWS’ comfortable win over Sydney while Tiger duo Toby Nankervis (127 SC) and Jack Riewoldt (120 SC and 6 goals) were Richmond’s two best players as they overcame Melbourne with a late burst on Anzac Eve.

Finally the butcher brothers Adam Treloar (141 SC) and Tom Mitchell (127 SC) make this column and it’s about bloody time. Treloar was outstanding on Anzac Day despite his side’s disappointing performance. Amassed 39 possessions and 12 tackles at an improved 71% efficiency. Mitchell was one of Hawthorn’s best in their demolition of the spineless Eagles, racking at 37 touches at 81% efficiency.

Nat Fyfe (126 SC) is starting to look ominous. There were shades of 2015 in his performance on Saturday night. He looks ready to explode.

Melbourne’s Michael Hibberd (124 SC) didn’t miss a beat in his first game in more than 12 months, accumulating 27 possessions and goal across half back in an excellent display. Keep an eye on him and if he puts in another good performance next week he could be a bargain buy up back.

Bulldogs trio Jack McCrae (121 SC), Luke Dahlhaus (120 SC) and Marcus Adams (120 SC) were the stars in Bob Murphy’s 300 th match. Many coaches who were rolling with the Dahlhaus-McRae double were rewarded handsomely.

Ollie Wines (122 SC), Dayne Zorko (121 SC) and Rory Laird (121 SC) are all on track for career-best seasons and should be strongly considered. St Kilda’s Seb Ross (123 SC) and Port’s Brad Ebert (122 SC) have been in good form so far in 2017 but there better options in the midfield at this stage.

The Villains

Marc Murphy (69 SC) crapped his pants for the first time this season. It was bound to happen sooner or later. He would have been a huge success if you started the year with him but those who traded him in the past few weeks were simply chasing points. Won’t be a top 10 midfielder and needs to out of our thinking. Those who started with him – now is the perfect time to swap him for a quality premo.

At this time last season, Luke Parker (83 SC) was one of the leading midfielders in the competition.

In 2017, he has been a shadow of his former self so far, averaging just 92 after 5 rounds. Parker had only 17 possessions on Saturday night. Team-mate and popular forward premo Lance Franklin (70 SC) slotted 3 goals but went at only 40% efficiency.

Every season Dylan Shiel (75 SC) threatens to break out and so far he continues to disappoint. Had a slow start and ended with 21 touches. After a promising first game, David Swallow (55 SC) has been highly disappointing in the following matches. Was poor last week and followed it up with just 11 possessions at 45% efficiency on Saturday.

Eagle Elliott Yeo (59 SC) and Sun Brendan Matera (46 SC) would have sucked a few naive coaches in with strong scores in the past couple of weeks. But at this stage they appear to be traps in the Shaun Higgins mould, who coincidently didn’t even bloody play on the weekend – a late withdrawal due to hamstring tightness.

The problem with Jack Steele (80 SC) is he is prone to long periods where he does absolutely stuff all in a match. Was sitting on 60-odd SC at half-time and barely touched the ball in the second half.

Does not rack up huge numbers in terms of possessions and relies heavily on tackling to boost his score.

Luke Hodge (66 SC) can’t be considered as a premium option in defence based on his output so far, while popular forward selections Nick Riewoldt (79 SC) and Josh J Kennedy (76 SC) didn’t have their best matches but should bounce back next week.

Brodie Grundy (71 SC) and Scott Pendlebury (67 SC) were uncharacteristically quiet for Collingwood, however the match was played in wet conditions so they should be back to their same old consistent selves soon.

The Redeemers

Jock would have been most pleased with Matt Crouch (124 SC) this week. His kick to handball ratio was much better and he had it 35 times. Patrick Cripps (107 SC) racked up 37 possessions – 18 of them contested – but his disposal efficiency of 63% cost him an even higher score.

Chad Wingard (101 SC) appeared in the Damned category recently but those who held on to him can hold him for another few weeks. The Chad seems to play well when Port are up and about and the Power are in good form at the moment so he might be due for a purple patch.

Zak Jones (115 SC) continued his yo-yo scoring with a nice outing for the Swans, while team-mate Callum Mills (94 SC) had his best match for 2017. Zach Tuoey (116 SC) was enormous for Geelong down back and provided great rebound, while Kade Simpson (91 SC) and Callan Ward (100 SC) are starting to work into some nice form after slow starts to the season.

The Prodigies

Adelaide pair Curtly Hampton (103 SC) and Andy Otten (101 SC) handsomely rewarded the coaches who chose to start them on field. Hampton enjoyed his best match for the season and elevated his score with 2 goals, while Otten – who also kicked 2 majors – has been a revelation in our backlines this season and is producing almost premium output so far.

Geelong’s Aaron Black (101 SC) enjoyed an excellent debut, snagging two goals to go with 21 possessions. Might not score this well every week, but looms as an excellent rookie downgrade up forward if he can keep his place in the side. Fellow Cat Tom Stewart (70 SC) enjoyed a solid match and might have some further cash generation in him yet, while Brandan Parfitt (51 SC) was quiet with 17 touches.

Dan Houston (73 SC) continued his consistent form for the Power and still has a few good weeks of cash generation in him, while debutant Aidyn Johnson (70 SC) was exciting in his first match and finished with 14 possessions and 2 goals. Carlton’s rookies produced mixed results. Tom Williamson (81 SC) rewarded the coaches who traded him in while Caleb Marchbank (76 SC) continues to be a viable option in the backline. The rest failed to impress with Zac Fisher (51 SC), Sam Petrevski-Seton (49 SC) and Cam Polson (34 SC) all producing sub par scores.

Lewis Melican (68 SC) and Ben McNiece (61 SC) looked promising on debut for Sydney and Essendon respectively and should get another chance next week.

Tiger Dan Butler (64 SC) was sitting on 48 at half-time and looked set for a decent score before going completely cold in the second half. Hawthorn’s Blake Hardwick (65 SC) had another admirable performance and could be a forward line option, as he is on the bubble this week.

Young Bomber Andrew McGrath (82 SC) was impressive in the wet, while Magpie Will Hoskin-Elliott (51 SC) again could not replicate the form he showed at the start of the season.

Jy Simpkin (73 SC) produced the best performance of short career, while fellow Roo Ed Vickers-Williss (51 SC) was promising on debut and looked better than his score suggests. Freo’s Griffin Logue (44 SC) kicked his first career goal but it wasn’t enough to help him produce a score of substance.

Commentators keep calling St Kilda’s Ben Long (22 SC) dangerous. Well he dangerously does not get near the ball very often. On the bubble this week. Will barely even rise in value. Swans pair Jordan Foote (33 SC) and Will Hayward (21 SC) are at risk of losing theirs spots after poor outings.

The Damned

The time has come to start lopping some of our rookies who have reached the peak of their cash generation capacity. Sam Powell-Pepper (55 SC), Jack Bowes (49 SC), Jarrod Pickett (28 SC) and Harrison Macreadie (27 SC) all have break evens close to or exceeding their averages. A good score from these players this week might see them earn a little more coin, but if they keep following their current trend they will start to go backwards in price.

Melbourne pair Jake Spencer (41 SC) and Tim Smith (22 SC) both injured themselves and are out for a number of weeks. Time to trade. Kade Kolodjashnij (43 SC) simply needs to go. For the third season in a row he has promised the world and delivered very little.

Jarryd Roughead (67 SC) was lucky to score as high as he did and needed 3 goals to help boost his total . Actually lost money this week. Those still holding him should upgrade immediately.

How did you go this Round?

Great work mate

INPieman

Shout out to a few lads

Firstly Frogger & his team M. Gayfer Allstars. WOW! I knew pretty quickly this week I’d run into the wrong bloke in cash league 2. But heading into Tuesday’s game & sitting on 2k with 5 players left he was a massive chance to grab the weekly. He was projected to get to 2465 & got to 2461 & fell just short. He was 3rd overall for the week & got some money from the HS. He’s also busted his way into the top 50. Well done mate

The quiet achiever in this joint is a bloke called Moustachio. You may have seen him in the comments. Anything he writes take notice. He spent most of last season ranked in the top 20. And he’s proving that was no fluke & he’s now inside the top 140 & smashing his way through the field. Well done Moustachio. Good luck & boy we are all glad you didn’t bash down the door for a cash league spot. If you want in next season your entry fee will have to be negotiated

And the leader of Cash League 1 is Sassy Foods. He’s having a stunning season & ranked 39th overall. Another one up to his eyeballs in it.

Good luck gents. Hoping I can challenge you lot at some point

INPieman

Update. The M.Gayfer Allstars has been upgraded to 2nd place this week after the HS found the winning team had multiple entries & was disqualified from winning money. Fell 6 points short of the weekly 1K

Randomcliche2

Bhahaha! Multiple entries….. Enough work keeping one team of misfits inline, let alone two! And, great work Frogger!

Moustachio

Haha thanks mate. Nice work in the league match! Was spewing. Serves me right for trusting bucks to stick to any kind of same gameplan.

INPieman

Nice work as always Carlos. Could you please find a place for Nathan Buckley in the Damned section. He's deserved a place in it for 5 years. Useless prick. If the Pies board doesn't do something about it I'll take him down to the firing range myself

Ja191

What's the best Sydney premo to bring in out of JPK, parker or hannas swapping out Murphy

Jayden

You get what you pay for in jpk but hannerbery is priced nicely at the moment

Finnius123

JPK still quite cheap at 30k more – but dosh is dosh and they will average the same so pick Hanners.

redgumwon

Spend the extra $30k and get JPK. That's right you only get what you pay for and JPK is far more consistent than Hanners

Rooster XXX

Why trade Murphy off the back of one bad score?? All premo mids will throw in a bad score from time to time?!?!
Why follow all the sheep that say Murphy is a flash in the pan and has to slow down…… Are you really sure that JPK, Parker or Hanners will actually outscore Murphy from this point of the season?? Even if they do is it really going to be enough to justify what is essentially a sideways trade.?..?? Despite copping a knock to the knee in the first qtr Murphy still had it 25 times so really don't see what the hurry or need is to sideways trade….. I am nut a Murphy owner but if I were would be in no hurry to trade him at this stage… What is the hurry for a sideways trade to another premo mid who may or may not outscore Murphy for the rest of 2017. Surely there are more urgent issues in your side?? If not then why not make a more beneficial upgrade of a rookie to a premo rather than trade out a well performed player….

whatyasmokin

Will bleed cash most likely, if he misses a game I would trade.

Ja191

heard he was injured and out for a while (odviously gonna hold if he's not)

Randomcliche2

JPK bud. Hanners and Parker both had interrupted preseaons which have showed up. Parker last, clearly not fit enough yet.

Nick

Keep Murphy. Don't believe what they write here. Why swap a player that will be in top 10 midfielders by the end of year. His better than previous years.

whatyasmokin

He won't be a top ten mid, just checked my crystal ball.

pod

I wouldn't trade the Smurf unless he gets injured. If you must trade, Hannas will come good so I'd have him ahead of JPK, forget Parker for now.

patrick365

At the start of the season I was tossing up between roughy and the nank in my forward line. I was that bloody close to picking roughy its not even funny.

Steeeve

Holding my trades this week unless I maybe consider WHE to Balic. Might prefer to wait a week and reassess Black. That 100+ score will be out of his pricing too quickly to mean much, but if he can hold his spot may be a better option.
Holding Swallow for the long haul at M9 for now and hoping SPP can make a little more coin before he becomes Pendles in fortnight.

INPieman

The question with Balic is was he really injured? Or was it Ross fluff again. Even if he does come back he doesn't have any JS whilst Ross is in charge. No rookie does. He even tossed Barlow into the WAFL. I'd be very nervous about picking Balic

Steeeve

Yeah he's just a jet though. Seems like some of those fringe players are on the chopping block (Sutcliffe hasn't played the past few) and maybe there will be a spot for him.
Might be safer to wait (Aaron Black maybe? Or early on Myers?) but I'll need a downgrade option soon so I can paint the fence and welcome Pendles.

INPieman

Myers is a dead set must have when he's on the bubble. Black I'm not so sure. He didn't feature in the round 1 side. I can see heaps are going early on Black. Surely the lesson from Spencer was a guide to not doing that. Whilst there may be a spot for Balic this week, next week is never assured. I don't mind the look of Blake Harddick. Might squeeze him in

Rooster XXX

Hardly a jet??? That is somewhat of an over statement……

Steeeve

Check his WAFL stats he has killed it. Deserves a good shot in the ones.

Rooster XXX

Pretty sure you don't score SC points for stats accumulated in the WAFL.

Jet some what of an exaggeration maybe unproven rookie might be a more apt description…..

Tyruddanaut

Barrett scored 160 in the state league. He'll be lucky getting 60 in supercoach though

Steeeve

Whoa let's not compare the wafl to the joke that is the neafl.
I'm not saying Balic will definitely be a good pick. Of course he is unproven at afl level. But all the signs point to him being a very good footballer.

whatyasmokin

Exactly he's the typical rookie this year who may or may not make much cash.

Nick

Fisher has to be the best rookie to get this week. He is a gun. Averaged over 30 pos a game last year. Must have if you need to downgrade

whatyasmokin

Yep locking him in, should have good JS which is the worry with Balic.

Tyruddanaut

WHE is a must out. His break even of 69 is incredibly high for a rookie who will be 50-50 making it. Otherwise he will lose the money.
Black should come in nicely. A proven performer at the kangas and I like the looks of him very much. What can make your pant rise quicker than a 137k scoring 101 anyway?

Nick

Not sure about a must out. Break even of 69 isn't that high. If he just misses it won't go down much and if he gets close to 100 will go up a few weeks. Wait another week. Wait a week then see how black goes.

4321

Best forward rookie to bring in

andrew

Andrew Black is a good option

Russty_

Good call Aaron 🙂

Dan

Balic if named

Seeker

Balic has DPP status so can be put forward

Tyruddanaut

Aaron Black or Blake Hardwick

iLoveNMFC

Macrae or Roo?

jason

Macrae. Only because of Roo's durability.Score was injury effected (ankle) on the weekend,and he aint getting any younger.

Dan

Macrae, more consistent

jez_m

Macrae based on consistency. Lowest score of 92 across his first 5 games.

SF4

Yep, Macrae.

Tyruddanaut

Roo is ancient mate. He'll break when you breathe on him. Steer clear

Bob Butter

Thinking of downgrading SPP to Fisher this week and then upgrading either Roughead or WHE into McCrae. Thoughts on which of these players needs to go first?

Danners

Roughie to Macrae, WHE has a better chance to make his breakeven

Tyruddanaut

Funny how you think that. Roughy has been up against difficult teams but his streak of luck will start next round against Sydney.
WHE was meant to be put in for cash anyway, not for high scores and he has gone under his current break even multiple times.
Get him outwhile he's full of cash and healthy

Nick

Roughy I would get rid of first. Has already started to go down. WHE won't go down much and has possibility of going up as well

DacZawson

Nankervis is still a good forward option to bring in isn't he? It would be a rookie upgrade.
Looks to be a Top 6 forward by the end of the year.

INPieman

Looks like a top 3 Fwd ATM

jez_m

Yep, people will be buying into him now as a genuine forward premo. Can't see him finishing outside the top six forwards if he keeps this up.

Dildor

As a richmond supporter with Hampson on the long term injury list i seriously can't see him coming back in even when he is fit. Nank is an absolute lock.

Tyruddanaut

Yes. This round is your last chance. He won't be sub 500k for long

LoganJosh7

Have i missed the boat with GHS? Or still a viable pickup?

Danners

Missed the boat, better rookie options around

LoganJosh7

who? fisher isnt that flash in the midfield and balic id prefer to puut up forward…

SF4

Could wait until Myers comes back

Finnius123

I like fisher personally.

Tyruddanaut

Fisher will still gain more than GHS

Nick

Who the hell is GHS? Never heard of him. Fisher is a gun though.

whatyasmokin

George Horlin Smith.

Randomcliche2

Kinda moved from Rookie to midpricer. Menegola back this week is a risk. I did buy him this week based on 2 reasonable games and preseason form. Expect 75 avg going forward. A good M8 until byes with a good bye round though….in all honesty, the cash is probably better put into a premo at this point.

pod

Horlin-Smith reminds me of your average punter at the races. He might have the occasional win (good game) but reality is he has no idea. Most of the time he looks confused, has the turning capacity of a truck, regularly gets in the way of team mates, has turtle like movements, and has an elitest surname. Nothing to like, stay clear.

b_sh3p

Nice when you start with these ones but not worth jumping on now, too risky I think. But I did start him so could be biased!

Alby

SPP, Eddy or Pickett who should be my priority to get rid of,

Ja191

I'd say eddy as he's not getting a game and doesn't look like he will but pickett is a complete dudd

jez_m

Out of those three you'd probably have to say Eddy given he's not playing.

Tyruddanaut

I'm using Eddy as a loophole at the moment and he hasn't gained enough for me to kick him oit

Travo

26 Trade Left, 270k in the bank.

Here's the team:

Laird, Adams, Doc, Shaw, Otten, Newman (Hamton,Stewart)
Danger, Fyfe, Treloar, Hanners, Josh Kelly, Beams, SPP, Parfitt (Taranto, Pickett, Barrett)
Sandi, Preuss (Strndica)
Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Greene, Houston, Black (Butler, Eddy)

I'm thinking this week trading out two of SPP, Parfitt and Taranto for Balic and Fisher. This would leave me with 500k+
Next week I want to upgrade the remainder of the three above to Dusty and upgrade Butler to Franklin.

Would this be a good move or am I going a bit early?

Finnius123

I would just bring in fisher and actually make an upgrade! There is no point having the cash in the bank if you aren't using it. The sooner the better in this regard.

Tyruddanaut

Don't bring in balic. He has terrible job security and won't gain a lot anyway, completely overrated in supercoach.

Dusty is also tioooooooooo expensive.
Get a Sydney mid maybe cripps, Oliver.
Preuss out if not named, nank to ruck and Tom Lynch (GCS) or Buddy in. I would even consider Adams to mid and get JJ, Simmo or hibberd.

Do you realize that Newman and Preuss didn't even play? Preuss was just rested so you could put nank in the ruck for him. Otherwise good team

Bo$$

Marchbank to Heath Shaw? Good trade??

Finnius123

yeah

whatyasmokin

Not scoring well enough and still a 112 BE.

whatyasmokin

Marchbank only 34 BE*

Randomcliche2

Yes, but in a week or two.

Dildor

agreed

Finnius123

Hi guys, I created a second account to test the trade theory that you can reverse a trade during the round by re-trading in the person you traded out. It doesn't work.

Now I have just realised that if I win a prize I will not be able to claim it due to the fact I have two accounts. Does anyone know how to delete an account? What do you suggest I do. I have already changed all of my personal data so they can't see that it is me – but I'm not sure this will do the trick. Any ideas?

Raging Bulls

Have you heard of the Darwin Awards? You just won the Fantasy Football version…

Finnius123

Yeah I know. Was just trying to do the community a favour!

INPieman

I'd contact the HS & ask them how you delete an account. You must be able to

kim

I'm not sure mate, dont think you can delete an account though. Maybe just stop using it from here on out, how can they tell if you have a second account anyway if you have different personal information anyway? Surely no one is stupid enough to put the same mobile number or anything else the same?

whatyasmokin

There's other ways to find out I imagine.

Finnius123

Yeah I have different details for everything.

BeaglieBoy

Well my wife and I both have a S/C account…..they are separate teams and we trade and do everything separately, but the details are all the same as we only have 1 mobile phone between us……anyway its all academic anyway as the chances of us winning some prize is negligible, let alone both of us……….and mane we might be living at separate addresses by the end of the season if I give her any more "great advice" like getting in WHE a week or two back

Kev

Depends what email address you used I would think. If you used the same one as your main account that probably wasn't too clever

Randomcliche2

I'd imagine they log IP addresses etc, so yes a first defense is to stop using the test team.

Then two options:
1. I'd suggest re-establishing it in viable alibi's name, and get viable alibi to inquire about deleting it; or (use a VPN, set different locations). Or let viable alibi continue using it for sh!ts and giggles.
2. Honesty. Write to them, explain, ask for forgiveness and continued eligibility.

Thanks for confirming the reverse trade function does not work. Much appreciated!

Finnius123

Yeah in the end just wrote about how my mate made a fake account in my name to stop me from winning.

Hope they buy it!

Lazza

You should have said your girlfriend's ex … a mate wouldn't do that ..

Dee

You won't win anything mate… don't worry about it.

dnoyes

Rockliff, Neale, or T. Mitchell? I feel like Rockliff has the potential to go huge and be a good captain option, while both Neale and Mitchell are underpriced. Could Mitchell be a top 15 midfielder from here on out?

TheScacman

Mitchell keeps racking up huge numbers and this week finally stopped butchering the ball. Even remembered to kick the pill 12 times. He's the man if you're looking to bring in now, Rockliff will have a dud game in the coming weeks and will come back down in price a bit

Tyruddanaut

Mitchell cares too much about his stats

Danners

I like Neale as a POD, ball magnet and less injury prone than Rocketman. More likely to average more than Titch as well

Randomcliche2

Love the diversity of opinion. My first reaction was Rocky by a mile, he is the guy you want. I hold Titch and continue to think he is good value. Then Danners comes in with logic. Love it. Danners and I have different values on injury risk. Rocky, provided you don't need that 40-90k elsewhere and aren't short because of it.

whatyasmokin

Rocky, Neale then Titch for me.

FEARTHEBEARD

Community :

Macrae or Riewolt in this week?

INPieman

Macrae I'd say. NRoo has a massive BE & keeps doing himself mischief

FEARTHEBEARD

Thanks again Pieman! Love the pic 😉

FEARTHEBEARD

Any thoughts on who is a rookie to grab this week? Fisher? Balic? Myers? Going to hold on Black.

INPieman

The only 2 I'm really looking at are Fisher & Harddick. Might give some thought to Balic if he's picked. But I don't trust Ross. I can't think of one season where he hasn't stuffed with my plumbs

FEARTHEBEARD

Harddick? What position is he in? How much?

Rooster XXX

Hardwick nor Harddick!!!
He is a fwd from the Hawks

whatyasmokin

hawks rookies = fail

Tyruddanaut

Big old macca

TRIGGER HAPPY

TRIG’s HAPPY PLACE LEAGUE RESULTS.
Happy Gilmore theme.

Wow what a difference a couple of days makes in football.
Despite the carnage on the rookie bench’s the majority of rookies that we were forced to field delivered the goods. Thanks guys.
Some huge scores from our premo’s. The Top gun and his wingman is there a better one/two combination fourth quarter specialist?
But for every big scoring premo there were those that didn’t fire. That’s just how it goes. Roll with it. The apple and berry turnovers come good and improved their DE and hence their SC scores. Nice one Adam and Titch.

When the dust had settled the winners were:

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!
LEK Def INPieman
TRIGGER HAPPY Def Liam
SC Addict Def Billy

Neilsdemonsdelights Def BVC
Rick Grimes Def Patch
Swans2012 Def Mo
Jock Def Tophawk

Some big scores this week with 3 teams punching out scores over 2,300 with Neil going huge with a total of 2,395. Mo suffered his first defeat of the year going to Swans by 30 points. Jock held on for a hard fought win against Tophawk which like the majority of matches came down the result of the Anzac day match. A big shout out to Daniel Wells who played pretty well but did play a lot in the midfield which pushed Pendles forward which affected his scoring. Without you Daniel the result could have been very different for me.
Those without Pendles will be watching over the next couple of weeks with interest.
Infact the file sale of premos over the next few weeks is going to be epidemic.

SC Addict sits on top of the ladder one of only two undefeated teams so far.

Moved up a bit in the League ranking which now sits at 66.

THE PRICE IS WRONG, BITCH.
Biggest drop in Price
Mr Stuck together with gaffa tape – Kurt Tippett.

YOU SUCK YA JACKASS.
And the award goes to: (lowest scoring premo – starting price > $480k) and not injured during game
Tom Hawkins – 41 SC points

Jock has also set up a JR community Group where any team can join and compete against one another under groups:

Overall JR Group Leaders:
Well done Brendan still leading the way – Team Sheeds leading all and sundry community group members with an overall rank of 9!
Bloody magnificent mate! – Go you good thing.

Hopefully one of this great community can be standing on the winner’s dais at the end of the year!
Good luck to all.
GONE TO MY HAPPY PLACE BE BACK IN FEW.

MinimumChips

Swallow to fisher and WHE to McRae? Yay or nay?

INPieman

Maximum chips on that. Tick. Macrae looks a top 3 Fwd

SF4

Good trades.

Tyruddanaut

Yay 50 times

b_sh3p

Nice one, I'm thinking swallow and rough out for fisher and macrae, leaving in will for now but likely trade out next week with spp for danger and black if he stays in. Should have me hitting 2400

TRIGGER HAPPY

Nice wrap up Carl.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Parfitt to Fisher.
Hoskin Elliot to Hannebery, Parker or Cripps.

Finnius123

Hannebery

SC Connoisseur

Out: Florent, Roughead
In: Balic/Black, Franklin

OR

Out: WHE, Roughead
In: Balic/Black, Hannebery

Finnius123

Option 2

Tyruddanaut

Be quick with getting WHE out! He's hit the ceiling

Rivo

Thoughts on the below please..

25 trades and $2k cash.

Hold or go Roughy & Swallow to

1. Martin & Fisher;
2. Treloar & Fihser;
3. Macrae & Fisher?

TheScacman

Wont get Treloar much cheaper than this, I'd say bring him in, Macrae is the next option, genuine top 3-5 forward option at this point. Martin looks like he's carrying something and will be a bit hot/cold till that sorts itself out

Rivo

Thanks Scacman.
Love Dusty but the injury is a concern. Seemed to be flying in the last quarter though. Treloar worries me with his poor DE. Macrae the safest option though will monitor Dustys track work this week.

TheScacman

Make sure you've got a dpp option to swing Macrae forward, otherwise you're missing out on a premium mid later in the season

Rivo

Thanks – I have Parfitt & Balic on the bench for that purpose.

Finnius123

All great options. Like 2 best as Macrae will hover at the price point whilst Treloar is at his bottom

Rivo

Issue in getting Treloar is also the byes…have Pendles already plus 2 x Swans in the mids.

Tyruddanaut

Hold

Stinga

Trade down SPP to fisher,
Upgrade swallow to oliver or ward?

Or trade down SPP and hold swallow?

Finnius123

Like the concept of painting the fence – but if you don't have the cash in bank then I would wait one more week to get a slightly better Premo as these two are no guarantees to average 115 for the rest of the year. Pendles/Zerrett/Dusty to bottom out at 560 in the next couple of weeks. They would be my target at this stage.

Stinga

Cheers, might hold onto swallow then

TheScacman

How's this for a bit of inspired trading community:

Eyeing up Heath Shaw this week for Swallow, doing this via dpp and bringing Taylor Adams into the middle as I'd rather have Hampton onfield than Parfitt. Can then switch Adams down back again when either Otten or Marchbank max out.

HWE looks to have fattened out for the short term, with either Johnson,Hardwick, Balic (if he comes in) or even Aaron Black looking valid downgrade options. Yes Black wont score like that every week, but a mid 70s score next week will see huge generation for the next 3-4 weeks and could be a good cash grab.

Feel free to offer your thoughts, also looking at Hibberd if he can replicate numbers like that next week but will not be caught chasing busses at this vital stage

Rivo

Smart trading by the looks of it. Shaw cheap for a premo at this stage and will turn his form around. Liked the look of Hibberd too, looks a lock if that weekend form continues.

Dildor

Stop, im getting a chubby.

Lazza

Shaw will be cheaper next week.. His BE is 112….. this will be good week against the Doggies to wait and see if he still has it in him …. I reckon he is cooked … has only scored 3 tons since last year's bye (13 games) … averaged 91 since then, and only 86 this season. Can't see him getting back to 100+ average and into the top 6.
(Posted this in pod cast thread)

whatyousmokin

I agree feels like Heater will barely be top 10.

Tyruddanaut

You're doing a similar thing to what I'm doing. I put Matera in Fwd and move down Dahl to mid because I would rather Meatera than Pickett.

I think that it's a good idea to get Shaw in but I would wait a week imo.

Your thoughts on Black are the same as mine with Matera. His rolling average puts 40k on his head and another next week even from a low score and high price. Black will get 60-70k mark my words.

So I would say trade out WHE for black and wait a week with baited breath. Shaw is only going to go down for one Moreno week but will go down nonetheless

Ben

Only used 4 trades thus far. Ranked 2500. $10,000 spare.
Time to downgrade/upgrade and bring in Heater, Sloane, Hanners, Nank, Greene??
FWD line is putrid so should perhaps focus on that…..

Adams, Laird, Johanniesson, Otten, Marchbank, Hampton (Newman, Smith)
Danger, Bont, Fyfe, Pendles, Treloar, Titchell, Oliver, SPP (Barrett, Pickett, Maynard)
Grundy, Sandi (Preuss)
Dahl, JJK, Franklin, Butler, Houston, Parfitt (Hannan, Eddy)

TheScacman

Macrae is looking the goods if you are keen to bring in a premium forward

SF4

Bringing in Macrae or nank would be the best idea.

Tyruddanaut

Bring in Nank. He's a lock top 3 FWD position in your team. But it would be hard to get him in.
I'd pass. It'd mess up your team if you tried. Please look at Heater, Hibberd and Simmo over the next week and pray butler scores another massive one to get the extra dough.

Downgoesbucks

Out: roughy. In: macrae or Cameron I think both are projected to be top 6 forwards

Ben

Macrae

TheScacman

Macrae. Gets time in the middle, Cameron will yo-yo as a Key Forward. Will go big some weeks and shoot you in the foot others.

whatyasmokin

History shows Cameron not going to be, so you are paying basically premo points for a breakout risk.

whatyasmokin

Meant Premo cash*

Babo

Agree… history needs to be considered…

Maybe delivery to GWS fwd line has developed with the emergung team but still seems like a risk.

Id say wait and pay full price for players like cameron when sure they are premum players after rd 9.

Finnius123

Macrae

b_sh3p

I'm doing rough > macrae

Lachy

Mummy, Stef Martin, Macrae, Shaw or Adams in?

whatyasmokin

Martin or MacCrae

Sooothsayer

Shaw a bargain, Adams scoring well but injury risk, as for both rucks, MaCrae the safest pick. Its really about your priority needs, you can swing Nank forward (if you have him) and cover with a good ruck, helps both ruck and forward lines.

Finnius123

Macrae first – most likely to finish in the top in his position

Dave

Is hibberd a go?

whatyasmokin

After one game? Surely people have learnt after matera etc.

Lachy

No one bought Matera after one round… what are you talking about mayte?

Mich

Yeh true why dont you pull the pin on hibberd then mayte

Lachy

Just saying it was an irrelevant analogy.

Randomcliche2

etc also included Spencer me thinks. Matera maybe not the best specific analogy, but if you know the analogy, then you probably know the answer to your question…all the best.

whatyasmokin

Still purchasing players with limited data, History shows he won't keep it up.

Tyruddanaut

Maters was for cash fennel for most people anyway

Tyruddanaut

Cash Generation*

whatyousmokin

Which looks like it has backfired

jez_m

Keep an eye on him this week. If he scores well again next week then think about making the move.

Danners

He's an orange light which could be green next week if he does well

Tyruddanaut

The lights already changing to green

pod

I liked what I saw. Hibberd was solid and looked comfortable in his new home. Could be a nice inclusion but you might as well wait another week if you can.

Dildor

What do we think about Buddy Franklin? Has been quiet to begin the season resulting in a really nice price drop, could be a great opportunity to bring in a top 10 forward?

He averages 103 against carlton and has a great string of games to follow which should result in 4 wins. The mids have been poor to begin the season meaning he hasn't had much supply up forward. Considering the lack of quality rooks we need to pick up premiums on the cheap when we can. Have a feeling he is ready for a big string of games.

Thoughts? Are there better options around the 470-520 range?

whatyasmokin

Has a 124 BE, may as well wait.

Dildor

Im thinking he'll beat that this week against carlton, especially if they dont have murphy. Am even considering throwing him the VC.

whatyasmokin

Could be a big one I suppose. A lot of people said that the other week though. Another 70-80 and he'll go down another 15K.

Does have Brisbane, North, Saints and Hawks after Carlton so should go well enough from here one would think.

Sooothsayer

I currently have the VC on Buddy. A good long shot i reckon.

Tyruddanaut

He'll destroy it. Let's see him score 10 straight

jez_m

I've dug into Old Ocker's spreadsheet and found some averages for Buddy vs his next three opponents and venue from 2014 to 2016.

Carlton – 4 games, 113 SC
Etihad – 6 games, 112.5 SC

Brisbane – 1 game, 90 SC
SCG – 25 games, 98.6 SC

North – 5 games, 86.2 SC
Etihad – 6 games, 112.5 SC (As above, but worth noting he scored 111 vs North at Etihad)

Read into these what you will, but he could have a big score this weekend which drives his price up again over the next month.

Dildor

Yeah i alluded to this in a post before. I like him, will be my upgrade from WHE

whatyasmokin

The way I see it, he won't hit his BE.

Tyruddanaut

The way I see it he'll double it

whatyousmokin

A 248? Lol

Randomcliche2

You'd say he'd be better than Cameron… but my man Higgins will be back to taunt you this week with another 100+ performance 😛

whatyasmokin

Highly possible

Dildor

Could grate cheese on that blokes chin.

Randomcliche2

Bhahahaa too true

Soothsayer

I know these guys are both valid bargains but How do I compare Hannabery and Treloar? WHo should I be considering as a first priority to bring in this week?

Kev

The player comparison tool over at footywire is usually good for these type of scenarios.

Treloar is dominating in most statistical areas, showed what kind of scores he's capable of when he cleans up his disposal

Finnius123

Bye structure is the determining factor for me.

Moustachio

The statistical metric I most like to rely on is termed the Trouser Stretching Ratio when I watch them play. No contest there for me.

Ben

Treloar looked good yesterday… was everywhere. I have Treloar, and will bring in Hanners in the next week or 2

Sooothsayer

Thanks Ben, I think Treloar will be more likely to hit his breakeven. and maybe as you say, get Hanners in a week or two.

SF4

Good moves. Hanners will get back into form.

Kim

I have brought banners in this week by upgrading swallow. That said he only averages 89 I think against Carlton so not expecting him to go large. His last 3 against bris however (plays them in round 7) he has averaged over 130. But if you can get him in this week I would as he should average much more than a swallow, omeara type for sure.

Kim

*hanners, friggen auto correct!

MattyB

What are people's thoughts on:

SPP down to Fisher
WHE up to Daniher?

whatyasmokin

Pointless

LoganJosh7

savage

whatyasmokin

Honest 😉

Tyruddanaut

An honest pointless savage

Finnius123

Literally – his team will be pointless.

I'll show myself out.

Tyruddanaut

I think he'll end up showing himself out

DacZawson

Hoskin-Elliott could outscore Daniher this year so hit reverse on that trade.

Tyruddanaut

I don't trust you Zac Dawson

jez_m

Chasing points with Daniher.

Finnius123

Don't chase points. Would go Macrae/Dahl/Nank – best forwards this year.

Tyruddanaut

Ok ok. But what about danger to Swallow and WHE to Jamie Elliot

Finnius123

I was thinking Danger to Pickett personally

whatyasmokin

Shark move!

Moustachio

No.

Juzzy

I have been worried about Pendles after his last 2 games.

My warped logic has led me to believe he is tanking until Bucks gets sacked, opening the door for him to become the first captain/coach for 36 years.

smote

its more likely Pendles will be playing for the ressies before Eddie sacks Bucks.

whatyousmokin

Which is why Collingwood are stuffed. Too much friendship and emotion playing a part. Champion players turned coaches shouldnt coach their old side anyway as we have seen elsewhere…….

Juzzy

Worked out well for Bernie Quinlan.

Oh hang on ….

Tyruddanaut

What have you been smoking, mum kind sir. Pendles just hasn't performed the same. That intensity you know

Tyruddanaut

My kind sir*

Juzzy

Sorry Try.
Have a had couple tonight.

Juzzy

love " mum kind sir" not really sure what it means but I am equally laughing and scared to death …

Adam

thoughts
taranto down to fisher and roughead up to nick reiwodlt?

bob the builder

nice

Kev

Like it

whatyasmokin

Reiwoldt over priced

jez_m

Reckon you'd be paying overs for Riewoldt at the moment. If you don't have Macrae, get him instead.

Adam

already have macrae tho

Finnius123

Dahl? Nank? If you don't have those two would probably pull the trigger as Roo is probably the most likely apart from them to be a top 6 forward

whatyasmokin

Just remember tooth length.

Adam

tooth length?

whatyasmokin

Never heard the saying long in the tooth? Haha

Adam

ohh haha i know what u mean. so dont get reiwoldt because he is old?

whatyasmokin

I don't think he will play all games this year, he is a warhorse though and surprises me every year.

Would be the last forward gun I lock in this year. Get the other 5 you want first I reckon, and save him a spot.

Kim

I would wait 1-2 weeks on Riewoldt if you can as he has a reasonably big break even and should be a lot cheaper next week or even week after depending on how he goes this week. Too expensive at his current price, his average will come down for sure, will average 100-105 at seasons end not the 120 he is currently averaging due to his big game against Brisbane which is now out of his rolling average.

Kim

Riewoldt (nick) has a break even this week of 158 so if he only get say 90-100 it will still be pretty big the week after due to his 79 from last week. Should drop 40+ grand in next 2 weeks maybe more depending on what he gets this week against the hawks

Kyle

David myers is a rookie to keep an eye on, been playing well in the VFL and should get a game pretty soon

Rooster XXX

Thanks Captain Obvious!!

Kev

Just the one game for him so far, maybe another week in the VFL to gain match fitness. Bombers have a short turnaround this week though so he might be a chance

Dildor

They just resigned him to a 2 year extension, if you've seen the size of the beast you'd know he will be a lock in 2 weeks time.

Lachy

no shit lol

bob the builder

I currently have JOM, Roughie, WHE and Taranto with 86k in bank.
Who should i look at moving on first?

Kev

Rough

jez_m

Given he's not playing at the moment, I'd say JOM.

SF4

Rough and JOM.

Finnius123

WHE and Roughie for mine. Both have the highest BE and will probably make the least amount of cash. You are in a bit of a sticky situation here. I got rid of all of these blokes earlier so I wouldn't be in this situation. You have to act fast and be very active on the trade button IMO early on in the season

Tyruddanaut

JOM and WHE
