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

Tommo · 26/04/2017 at 11:33

Petrevski-Seton -> Fisher leaving $270,900 in the bank for next week, good call or nah?

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:28


    LoganJosh7 · 26/04/2017 at 16:45


    Tommo · 26/04/2017 at 19:51

    Thanks for the feedback

INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 11:36

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 · 26/04/2017 at 11:54

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:51

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

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 08:39

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 11:45

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 · 26/04/2017 at 11:53

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

    Jayden · 26/04/2017 at 12:30

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

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 12:42

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

        redgumwon · 26/04/2017 at 13:50

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 13:53

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:46

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

      Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 15:14

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

        Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 16:54

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

    Nick · 26/04/2017 at 23:30

    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 · 27/04/2017 at 01:40

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

    pod · 27/04/2017 at 07:06

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 11:54

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 · 26/04/2017 at 11:57

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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:12

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 13:06

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 13:34

        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

          HallyMate · 26/04/2017 at 13:49

          Hardwick looked alright, but was playing a defensive role with Birchall, Henderson and Duryea all out of the team. Wouldn't rate his job security any better than Balic's

            whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:31

            I'd rate it as worse honestly.

        Rooster XXX · 26/04/2017 at 13:54

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

          Steeeve · 26/04/2017 at 14:26

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

            Rooster XXX · 26/04/2017 at 14:40

            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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:02

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

              Steeeve · 26/04/2017 at 23:44

              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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:31

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

            Nick · 26/04/2017 at 23:33

            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 · 27/04/2017 at 01:39

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

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 19:59

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 23:35

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:00

Best forward rookie to bring in

    andrew · 26/04/2017 at 12:40

    Andrew Black is a good option

      Russty_ · 26/04/2017 at 17:10

      Good call Aaron 🙂

    Dan · 26/04/2017 at 13:58

    Balic if named

    Seeker · 26/04/2017 at 14:13

    Balic has DPP status so can be put forward

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:02

    Aaron Black or Blake Hardwick

iLoveNMFC · 26/04/2017 at 12:05

Macrae or Roo?

    jason · 26/04/2017 at 13:42

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

      Dan · 26/04/2017 at 13:59

      Macrae, more consistent

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 15:38

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

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:29

    Yep, Macrae.

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:03

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

Bob Butter · 26/04/2017 at 12:10

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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:21

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

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:05

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 23:37

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:10

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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:14

    Looks like a top 3 Fwd ATM

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 15:39

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:44

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:06

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

LoganJosh7 · 26/04/2017 at 12:18

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

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 15:21

    Missed the boat, better rookie options around

      LoganJosh7 · 26/04/2017 at 15:26

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

        SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:30

        Could wait until Myers comes back

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:38

        I like fisher personally.

        Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:07

        Fisher will still gain more than GHS

          Nick · 26/04/2017 at 23:39

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

            whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:38

            George Horlin Smith.

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:01

    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 · 27/04/2017 at 07:02

    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 · 27/04/2017 at 16:58

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:21

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

    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 15:19

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:39

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

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:08

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

Travo · 26/04/2017 at 12:22

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 · 26/04/2017 at 12:43

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:16

    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$$ · 26/04/2017 at 12:32

Marchbank to Heath Shaw? Good trade??

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 12:44


    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:27

    Not scoring well enough and still a 112 BE.

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 15:02

    Marchbank only 34 BE*

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:06

    Yes, but in a week or two.

Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 12:41

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 · 26/04/2017 at 13:03

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

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:38

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

    INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 13:08

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

    kim · 26/04/2017 at 13:10

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:00

      There's other ways to find out I imagine.

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:21

      Yeah I have different details for everything.

        BeaglieBoy · 26/04/2017 at 18:37

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:30

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:16

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:33

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 19:47

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

          Dee · 27/04/2017 at 00:29

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

dnoyes · 26/04/2017 at 12:59

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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:05

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:18

      Mitchell cares too much about his stats

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 15:22

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

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:26

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:42

    Rocky, Neale then Titch for me.

FEARTHEBEARD · 26/04/2017 at 13:03

Community :

Macrae or Riewolt in this week?

    INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 13:06

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

      FEARTHEBEARD · 26/04/2017 at 13:41

      Thanks again Pieman! Love the pic 😉

        FEARTHEBEARD · 26/04/2017 at 13:42

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

          INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 13:51

          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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:10

            Harddick? What position is he in? How much?

              Rooster XXX · 26/04/2017 at 14:15

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

                whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:35

                hawks rookies = fail

TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/04/2017 at 13:14

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:

LEK Def INPieman
SC Addict Def Billy
Dontblushbaby Def Gator
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.

Biggest drop in Price
Mr Stuck together with gaffa tape – Kurt Tippett.

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.

MinimumChips · 26/04/2017 at 13:23

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

    INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 13:36

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

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:35

    Good trades.

    marcusproudson · 26/04/2017 at 19:25

    b_sh3p · 27/04/2017 at 12:53

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 13:35

Nice wrap up Carl.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 26/04/2017 at 13:42

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

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:20


SC Connoisseur · 26/04/2017 at 13:45

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


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

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:20

    Option 2

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:23

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

Rivo · 26/04/2017 at 14:01

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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:08

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:29

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:32

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:54

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

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:20

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

      Rivo · 26/04/2017 at 20:05

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

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:24


Stinga · 26/04/2017 at 14:03

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

Or trade down SPP and hold swallow?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:19

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 22:53

      Cheers, might hold onto swallow then

TheScacman · 26/04/2017 at 14:03

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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:08

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:40

    Stop, im getting a chubby.

    Lazza · 26/04/2017 at 20:03

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 21:15

      I agree feels like Heater will barely be top 10.

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:29

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:08

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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:16

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

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:39

    Bringing in Macrae or nank would be the best idea.

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:40

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:09

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

    Ben · 26/04/2017 at 14:15


    TheScacman · 26/04/2017 at 14:16

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:20

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

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:40

      Meant Premo cash*

        Babo · 27/04/2017 at 13:44

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:17


    b_sh3p · 27/04/2017 at 13:02

    I'm doing rough > macrae

Lachy · 26/04/2017 at 14:24

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

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:38

    Martin or MacCrae

      Sooothsayer · 26/04/2017 at 14:50

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:16

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

Dave · 26/04/2017 at 14:27

Is hibberd a go?

    Matty · 26/04/2017 at 14:28

    Michael from Melbourne

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:33

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

      Lachy · 26/04/2017 at 16:24

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

        Mich · 26/04/2017 at 16:34

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

          Lachy · 26/04/2017 at 17:07

          Just saying it was an irrelevant analogy.

        Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:33

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:39

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

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:43

      Maters was for cash fennel for most people anyway

        Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:43

        Cash Generation*

        whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:12

        Which looks like it has backfired

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 15:43

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

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:06

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

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:44

      The lights already changing to green

    pod · 27/04/2017 at 07:37

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:32

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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:37

    Has a 124 BE, may as well wait.

      Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 14:39

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

        whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 14:51

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:53

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

        Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:42

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

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 15:59

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:21

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

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:28

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

        Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:46

        The way I see it he'll double it

          whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:08

          A 248? Lol

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:37

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:38

      Highly possible

        Bhahahaa too true

Soothsayer · 26/04/2017 at 14:46

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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:35

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:15

    Bye structure is the determining factor for me.

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 08:53

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 14:48

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

    Sooothsayer · 26/04/2017 at 14:52

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:45

    Good moves. Hanners will get back into form.

    Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:17

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 21:18

      *hanners, friggen auto correct!

MattyB · 26/04/2017 at 14:49

What are people's thoughts on:

          An honest pointless savage

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:14

      Literally – his team will be pointless.

      I'll show myself out.

        Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:47

        I think he'll end up showing himself out

    DacZawson · 26/04/2017 at 15:44

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

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:48

      I don't trust you Zac Dawson

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 16:02

    Chasing points with Daniher.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:14

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

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:49

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

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:56

      I was thinking Danger to Pickett personally

        whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:36

        Shark move!

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 08:53


Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 14:57

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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:37

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

      whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:06

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 23:23

        Worked out well for Bernie Quinlan.

        Oh hang on ….

    Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:50

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

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:50

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 15:38

    Reiwoldt over priced

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 16:03

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

      Adam · 26/04/2017 at 16:12

      already have macrae tho

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:13

        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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:27

    Just remember tooth length.

      Adam · 26/04/2017 at 17:34

      tooth length?

        whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:36

        Never heard the saying long in the tooth? Haha

          Adam · 26/04/2017 at 17:41

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

            whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:52

            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 · 26/04/2017 at 21:21

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 21:23

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:14

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 · 26/04/2017 at 15:26

    Thanks Captain Obvious!!

    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 15:28

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 16:47

      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 · 26/04/2017 at 17:06

    no shit lol

bob the builder · 26/04/2017 at 15:18

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

    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 15:23


    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 16:04

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

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:49

    Rough and JOM.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:12

    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 · 26/04/2017 at 20:51

    JOM and WHE

Dylan · 26/04/2017 at 15:22

Frustrated with my team, any quick fixes?

Laird, Simmo, Marchbank, Otten, Newman, Hampton (Stewart, Williamson)
Danger, Fyfe, Treloar, Titch, Hanners, Dusty, Beams, SPP (Barrett, Parfitt, Hibberd)
Grundy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Dahlhaus, Lynch, Nank, Higgins, Houston, Butler (Pickett, Eddy)

24 trades, $164,000 in the bank

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:49

    Personally i think your team looks great. Probably one more short in defence than i'd like but no major holes. Maybe Hibberd to fisher this week and then sit?

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:52

      I'd even hold on that

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:10

    Higgins to Macrae and hibberd to Fisher. Unfortunately you just got the wrong premiums this year!

      Tyruddanaut · 26/04/2017 at 20:53

      Barrett too fisher more like the answer. Hibbers is a great loophole option

        mersey · 26/04/2017 at 21:35

        I agree with Hibberd being a great loophole option as he is reportedly injured. Your team has little ability to generate cash in the midfield and defense, so I would consider upgrading a couple of playing rookies such as Fisher for Barrett in the mids and Hardwick for Eddy in your forward line and use your cash next week to buy hibberd (mel)

          Dylan · 27/04/2017 at 01:13

          Thanks guys, I'll probably hold my fire or get Fisher in while he's on the bubble

jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 15:34

Feeling a double downgrade this week – Taranto and WHE out for Balic (if he comes in) and Fisher. Gives me nearly $350K for upgrades the week after.

Happy to give Steele one more chance but if he continues to throw up 70 or 80s I'll be tempted to move him on for Nankervis or another top 8 forward.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:09

    Like it. I am holding Steele until just before his bye where I will bring in Tom Lynch (GC) who will be fine to play throughout all three bye rds. Just my plan for him – I am sure that what you are suggesting fits your team. Steele can be a solid points scorer for the next couple of weeks and we really need to be culling people like WHE, Parfitt and SPP before him.

      jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 18:27

      Good plan Finnius. I already have Lynch so can't pull the same move unfortunately! Steele is still scoring better than rookies, which is important. Just feel like he relies on tackling too much rather than finding the ball to go 100+

      Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 18:40

      Thanks for that, great plan +1

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:11

        No worries Dildor – am pretty happy with that idea as Lynch won't have a bye and is a 100% keeper. Also looking at Ollie Wines as an upgrade target after rd 9 to get me through the byes.

Darren · 26/04/2017 at 15:37

Is this trade madness…
Mountford for Fisher
Pickett for balic/black with some extra cash

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:45

    A non playing rook for a playing rook, and a player with a BE close to matching his output, seem like textbook trades to me.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:07

    Like it. Am doing something similar next week. Sometimes unfortunately it takes three rookie downgrades to get a premo instead of two 🙁

    Crowmagnon · 26/04/2017 at 18:03

    If balic isnt named, it costs younnothing to wait a week on Black. Might not seem such a good trade in a week.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 19:08

    Not mad at all.

Dougal · 26/04/2017 at 15:44

Great write up Carlos! Love it every week.
Just s couple of quick questions for this great community:
1. Playing vs non-playing rookies – should we be looking at moving on the likes of SPP, WHE etc who are playing but BE nearing their average OR non-playing such as Barret, TT or Newman for those on the bubble? Given the risks of onfield donuts when those with average JS are traded in.
2. This one is more for my benefit, if TT and SPP are both named or neither named, who makes way for Fisher?

Cheers community.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/04/2017 at 15:48

    Great Q
    Might be something in the pod cast on this

    Travo · 26/04/2017 at 15:51

    1. Good Questions, would like to hear peoples thoughts myself..
    2. SPP to make way for Fisher, I still think Taranto has a lot of talent and is capable of producing a high score if he plays.

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:25

      Taranto has been dropped in a team that is unlikely to recall.

      SPP has job security in a midfield that just lost a big player in Boak.

      Ridiculous to keep taranto.

    jez_m · 26/04/2017 at 16:05

    Good question, but if you don't already have the three guys you mentioned as non-playing rookies then you've missed the boat on them and would be paying overs.

      John James · 26/04/2017 at 17:13

      He's asking which rookies to trade first,playing or non playing,not which ones to get in.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 17:02

    Good question , has that been mentioned ?

    I have a similar problem still holding Hib, Eddy, Barret and Mountford (who can't mount anything according to Jock).

    Think I will end up too far behind the pack if I swap these guys for guys the same-ish price.

    We all need cash generation.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:06

    I personally am getting rid of people who have hit their BE, but am only keeping players with the potential to be recalled and still have relatively low BE. For example am holding Newman because he could come back at any time, however have traded Taranto because his BE is 37 and he doesn't have that much cash gen left in him. If you are playing for overall rank then burning the people who have appreciated in price and bringing in Premo's is essential, and you are gonna get there quicker by trading out people at a higher price and who aren't going to make that much more dosh. Furthermore I reckon that there is still quite a bit of cash generation left in people like Newman and Barrett if they stay in the Frame for selection. More than three weeks out of the side however can be troubling, so if Barrett doesn't get the call up this week then I would move him on.

    I hope that helped.

    Also would go TT for Fisher. SPP has a higher ceiling, better JS, a better draw and is perfectly situated to be moved on after the RD 8 before his bye. TT is also gonna give you 20k more in hand, which doesn't sound like a lot but it all counts this year!

    Brian · 26/04/2017 at 17:12

    I have been wondering the same. If we want to get shaw or Simpson into our teams. Do we trade one of our rookies who is playing every week and still has money to make ( marchbank maybe) or if doesn't get named again, Trade Newman. Who clearly has lots more money to make. But with McVeigh to come back may struggle to get a run.

    Hopefully we won't have to worry about this as Newman will get named this week.

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:22

    TT needs to go, especially if not named.

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:52

    I've been trading out a combination of playing/non-playing rookies of those who have appreciated in value. Weeks 2 and 3 are for getting rid of rubbish, but yeah, I still got some and its just sitting there doing nothing and will continue to. I sacked Newman on the weekend. I am not happy with Eddy or Pickett but, I think its more important to get cash on the park in the form of premo's. SPP can still earn cash, but will become Balic for me this week. I don't hold TT, but would probably trade him first…just. sorry for the unstructured ramble.

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 18:06

    if they are on your bench and not needed for points the player with the high BE has to go first.

    (reminds me of the Papley vs Darcy-Jones debate last year)

    There are two types of players, Keepers and Cash-Cows.

    If your Cash Cow can't make you any more coin their usefulness has come to and end, in fact if you keep him too long he may start losing coin.

    Having WHE on your bench and just hits his BE over the next two weeks is exactly the same cash generation as having barrett non-playing on your bench. the difference is that when barrett does get a game he will make cash. The idea is trade WHE out and get someone who will make you cash.

    where it becomes difficult is when you need a WHE on field to earn points. If he is just going to earn his BE, you need to take a long term view and get rid of him, might miss a couple of points, but overall you will get them back.

      Derek · 26/04/2017 at 18:11

      you also need to have a look at what is making up their BE. For example T Boyd has a BE of 90 and is priced at $261k. usually you would dump him as fast as you can, however in his BE calculation is his injury affected round 4 score of only 3. so therefore after this week, that 3 will drop out and he might be back to a very low BE next week.

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:54

        Agree. SC gold has projected BE's which is very useful

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 09:03

    If you think you will lose cash by holding, you should ditch them. If they are still gaining small amounts, better to ditch the non players.

    bob is your uncle · 27/04/2017 at 19:06

    Both TT and SPP are on field.

Col · 26/04/2017 at 15:55

Just looking ahead community

Those looking to trade SPP should consider holding to the R9 bye. Boak is currently out, Gray's up fwd with dodgy groins & Leading up to the bye Port play Bris, WCE (in adel so wce can't play away) & then the suns.

So I for 1 will be holding as they'll be more coin to cash in on.

    Powerage · 26/04/2017 at 16:16

    Totally agree

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:54

    Good call.

    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 19:31

    He only managed 55 against Carlton Col and his breakeven is 41. I don't see him doing better against stronger opposition so trade him now before his price starts going in reverse

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:53

      Will do better than 41. IF you have no others to trade then burn him but Parfitt, SPS, Swallow, Roughie, JOM & WHE all must go before him

Powerage · 26/04/2017 at 16:07

I'm thinking WHE to Balic and Roughy to Macrae or wait another week?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:00

    Like it – maybe try and get Fisher/Hardwick – however if Balic is named this week then very sound trade

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:05

    Wield the axe if you have no other dilemmas

pod · 26/04/2017 at 16:14

Anyone considering or thoughts on the possible new Demons ruck? Cam Pedersen $367K, B/E 72.

I'm serioulsy re-evaluating team structure for the move, I think he will be good value and turn out decent – large scores.

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:42

    Its gonna be a hurry up and wait for me, i like the idea of it, although i liked spencer too and thought aboout going early before he fell to the SC gods. Will wait and see what melbs ruck structure looks like.

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 16:56

    People who trader in Spencer would be kicking Themselves, don't make the mistake they did.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:00

    NOPE. Go full premo – no point in messing about with mid pricers now unless they are definitely going to be keepers

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:20

    At 367K it's just crazy talk. Spencer was cheap.

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 17:56

    you might as well get Watts.

    pod · 26/04/2017 at 18:01

Andy · 26/04/2017 at 16:17

How are these trades, Murphy to Sloane and SPP to Andrew Black.
Not sure if i want to pay that much money on Sloane but he is in amazing form. So suggest if i should by Sloane or buy someone like Wines Zerrett or Titchell.
Please reply, Cheers

    Lachy · 26/04/2017 at 16:23

    At least hold murphy for another 2 weeks and see in my opinion. Too early to go on Aaron Black, you should ideally wait a week when he's on the bubble.

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:19

      Why bother waiting 2 weeks so he loses cash?

    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 16:24

    Do not buy into Black yet, give it another week. SPP to fisher or balic may be a better suggestion or hold off til next week. Personally I'd go Murphy to either JPK or Hannas – fallen premos with a good looking next month.

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:19

      Spot on.

    Ted · 26/04/2017 at 16:32

    Hold Murphy

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:18

      He's hurt himself and has a 141 BE. Cull the spud he's made the cash.

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:38

    Sloan is bloody expensive at the moment, i dont think we can afford to spend over 620 for him, at this stage im gonna wait.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:59

    Hold SMURPH and go SPP to Fisher – kid is in the Caleb Daniel mould

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:18

    Like the trades. Black is a risk though.

    Probably wise to just trade Smurph straight to Hanners/JPK etc.

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 17:55

    crazy to get Sloane at that price. Look for bargins otherwise you will run out of cash.

    S Thompson should be back this week, could change the whole dynamics of the Crows mid-field like Wells did to Collingwood.

      Smote · 26/04/2017 at 21:11

      Sloane looks ready to be a top 5 mid come end of year. How much do people think he will drop in price from here? I want to nab him but I'm not sure he'll go below 600k…..just seems to be relishing being the Crows premier mid.

        Derek · 26/04/2017 at 21:16

        Sloane WILL be affected by Brad Crouch and SThompson returning. Can not keep this scoring up when they are both back.

      Adam · 27/04/2017 at 08:58

      Thompson will b weeks away building fitness in the magoos and then he will play 6-8 games max

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:04

    Don't go chasing the bus, hold both

    Top Gun · 26/04/2017 at 20:36

    Two schools of thought here…if you buy Hanners you will keep far more $$$ which will be vital. However everyone seems to be bringing in Hanners so a POD might make up more points in the overall rankings.

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 09:06

    Wise man say, top premos are divine, but never pay full price for last weeks points.

Mitch · 26/04/2017 at 16:27

Hey community, which do you think would be the better option out of the two?
1. WHE (F5) to Macrae
2. Hold WHE and next week go Parfitt (M8) AND SPP (M7) out for Black/Parsons AND Rocky/Sloane/Pendles/Stef(via dpp)

    Ken · 26/04/2017 at 16:54

    2. WHE still has scoring potential

      whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:50

      70 BE and Geelong next. Lop his head off.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:57

    1 WHE has hit his max cash gen

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:58

    Go 2 next week – seems like you have got a plan

      Mitch · 26/04/2017 at 17:05

      Won't have enough cash to do 2 next week if I'm to do 1

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:51

        1 then

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:50

    Trade get macrae in.

Isaiah · 26/04/2017 at 16:29

Hey Guys, is it time for beams to go?

    Hjjj · 26/04/2017 at 16:30


    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 16:32

    No lol much more important things to worry about beams has been good

      Kev · 26/04/2017 at 19:34

      How can you say that? He was the same price as Murphy and is averaging 21 less

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:36

        Mate beams is averaging 102. How many rookies can you say the same about? He is the last on my upgrade list (if at all) because he is pumping out tons every week. I am happy to keep that on field for me until all of my other problems are solved.

          Kev · 26/04/2017 at 20:57

          he's currently the 34th ranked mid. for a 180k + Beams you could get sloane and improve your onfield ave by 30. There aren't any rookies that you can add 200k to and improve your onfield score by 30

            Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:30

            Slone will not keep up a 130+ average buddy, purple patch for sure but it'll burst soon enough as soon as someone bothers to tag him. Way over priced no way I would get alone in unless you want to run out of money. Plenty of other decent picks way cheaper, hanners, jpk, Pendleton in 2 weeks etc etc

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:57


    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:15

    Is there an injury nobody else is aware of?

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:09

    No bloody way.

    Top Gun · 26/04/2017 at 20:37

    Is this a joke question?

    Pitch 72 · 26/04/2017 at 21:14

    No, not yet.

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 09:09


Osei · 26/04/2017 at 16:31

Hey guys,
could use some help with my trades
think WHE and beams for Stef Martin (from nank swing) and Hibberd (melbourne)
i know what you are all gonna say about hibberd but i only have 485k left for the defender if i get Martin, and personally i believe hibberd can be at least a top 12 defender.

Thoughts lads?

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:39

    Big call on top 12 defender after 1 match. Especially when theres a few nice fallen premos down back. Shaw, Rance, Simpson,

    Sauce · 26/04/2017 at 16:52

    I'd go shaw instead of hibberd

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:57

    I also wouldn't trade beams. So many other options to cull before a guy who is averaging 105

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:48

    Trading out a player averaging 105 who isn't injured.

    To get a ruck that is most likely topped out in value, and a defender that you have settled on due to lack of funds (not to mention lack of data)

    These are the sorts of moves in supercoach that will make your team rubbish.

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:09

    Why would you get rid of beams?

    Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:34

    Has anyone considered why hibberd didn't play the first 4 games? Ahhh injury risk anyone? Not touching him at all, can't trust his body, already proved that, don't care about how cheap he is, look at his past averages, never averaged more than 93 ever. Last week he had a great game, can he back it up week in week out? Doubt it very much. Howe I think can though, he is who I am wanting over shaw, Simpson etc

      whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:29

      Agreed. Simpson and Shaw out of my calculations at this point.

      Back is Doch, Adams, Loyd.

      Will get Laird, Howe and possibly JJ.

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 09:10

    Keep Beams.

Stav · 26/04/2017 at 16:32

Sup Gents,

who are the best defensive options for 490k and under? i was thinking hibberd or shaw potentially roberton?

    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 16:40

    JJ or Tuohy could be good, do not trade hibberd in give him another week to see if he can replicate it

    Sauce · 26/04/2017 at 16:51


    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:56

    jake Lloyd, JJ and Shaw

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:07

    Lloyd or shaw.

Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 16:37

surely JOM will be back this week?

    Lachy · 26/04/2017 at 17:06

    I've got $50 he doesn't play

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 17:56

    "it could be 1, it could be 4" I'm not taking Lachy's $50

    Pitch 72 · 27/04/2017 at 07:51

    Get rid of him.

    Derek · 27/04/2017 at 08:37

    He is definitely the Brad Crouch for this year

    pod · 27/04/2017 at 08:57

    Oh you mean that injury prone GC Suns reject? Dump him.

BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 16:46

Not sure if I'm making the right decision here community.

Sitting in the top 5k with 28 trades with the likes of O'Meara, Taranto, Pickett, Hannan, Eddy, SPP, Parfitt, Barrett and Eddy all still in my side, however keeping all and making no trades at this stage.

The reasoning for this is I believe that there are no strong rookie options available? Don't see Fisher making much cash and too early to jump on the likes of Aaron Black.

What are everyone's thoughts?

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:53

    Providing that your rookies play this week then its a good strategy. However you've already sat on Omera for 2, taranto for 1, hannan for 1, eddy for 2 (1?), barrett for 1.

    I think fisher will be steady to be honest and carlton look likely to keep playing the rookies so his js should be okay, maybe look to move on one of taranto or omera this week and use the cash to upgrade next?

      Derek · 26/04/2017 at 17:49

      if they play they stay.

        BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 20:17

        Yep exactly right boys, going to keep taranto and o'meara those boys have $$ to make, don't like seeing people jump off rookies so early it just hurts my eyes! However in saying that the ultimate goal of supercoach is getting full premo ASAP, so perhaps the approach I am taking is not the best. Interesting to see how everyone's seasons will unfold though

    Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:38

    You need to start trading mate if going for overall otherwise you are going to get left behind. Need to cull a rookie for cash then upgrade someone else to a premo this week, that's what all the top 1,000 or so guys will be doing this week. I am ranked 1900 and that's what I did, swallow to hanners.

    Get rid of Taranto to fisher or Balic if named then omeara up to hanners or jpk.

      BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 22:42

      Fair play Kim, fair play

Adam · 26/04/2017 at 16:48

upgrade roughy to nankervis or n.reiwoldt?

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 16:50

    Nankervis looks to be a top 3 frward this year as many have already said. With Roo's age and +90k more id go with nankervis.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:55


    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:06

    Nank, rooey will drop in price and cheaper to pick up at a later stage.

      BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 20:18

      Keep Nank, get rid of Roughy he is not supercoach relevant. Nank looks to be a top 6 forward without a doubt in mind.

Sauce · 26/04/2017 at 16:51

Do I trade out WHE or Swallow PLEASE HELP!!

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 16:55

    Both – who else are you trading this week otherwise?

    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 18:05

    can afford WHE another week, get swallow outa there

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:05

    Swallow has got to go.

    Pitch 72 · 26/04/2017 at 21:12

    whoever has highest be.

    Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:40

    Swallow is playing injured which have clearly affected his past 2 weeks scores be of 94 and he has 2 shit scores in a row so be will also be big last week. WHE won't lose much cash in next few weeks, only need a 70-80 game to kee making a little cash also.

Nick · 26/04/2017 at 16:57

Why all the Hype re Balic? Is he that good of a prospect given a 55 av and dropped last week. Are there not better must haves on the bubble. This is certainly not a criticism of those considering him. I just haven't seen him play yet and I'm not sure why he's been spoken of in such high terms and would be keen to find out to help me make my own decision. I'm not so much concerned about the DPP status just after best cash generation.

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 17:16

    Reason people are talking is because he's an absolute monster in the WAFL with what seems like Tom Mitchell esk stats.
    Last 3 games stats > http://www.wafl.com.au/players/view/6312

    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 19:39

    I don't get it either Nick he looks like another Pickett to me. One ultraspud score and one plain spud score. Who cares what he can do against kids, hasbeens and never-will-be's from the WAFL he's rubbish at afl level. Save the trade or get a 102k Dpp loopholer

      Josh · 26/04/2017 at 21:50

      How many games in any of those leagues have you played Kev?

    Top Gun · 26/04/2017 at 20:42

    I think he will only improve with more games. Plenty of top players didn't play well in their first few games.

Bill · 26/04/2017 at 17:00

Hannebery or Parker

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:37

    Hanners has shown more this year and Parker will continue to fall in price at his current rate

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:04


    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 19:40

    Roasted or Mashed

    Pitch 72 · 26/04/2017 at 21:11


H Lee · 26/04/2017 at 17:06

what to do with Samo Pet-Set? gut telling me to hold but with BE of 77 is it time for him to go? can downgrade WHE to balic which leaves me only 525,000 when trading pet-set! just short of hanners and treloar, maybe parker at 520,000. currently ranked 346th
Thanks community, H

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 17:11

    Hold. I'd be weary of Balic. As some of the more experienced guys have said Ross is sure to ruin him.

      H Lee · 26/04/2017 at 17:12

      thanks dildor. also thinking of another option which would be going pet-set to fisher, then marchbank to shaw?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:31

    Your hands are tied however both have to go. It probably shows why you need to start with a little more cash in the bank. I would be going SPS to Fisher and then WHE to Nankervis if you don't have him, or maybe Buddy as a fallen premo in the forward line.

    Northernsoul74 · 26/04/2017 at 19:26

    Think I'll go SPS to Fisher.

Adam · 26/04/2017 at 17:07

This Week: Taranto > Fisher and Roughead > Nankervis – 90k in bank.
Next week: WHE > Aaron Black (will make 200k off it) and Stewart > Mcneice (Will make 100k off it) – Total of 390k
Week after: Upgrade swallow to sloane with atleast 70k in bank

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 17:07

    Solid plan, i like it, hopefully sloane will stink up a game for you. Not likely.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:48

    Like it

KSinny · 26/04/2017 at 17:09

Here's my team guys I need some tips

Shaw, laird, often, bob murph, Newman, marchbank (Stewart, Guthrie)

Bont, dusty, smurph, titch, Fyfe, beams, Watson, swallow (Barrett, fox, mountford)

Martin, sandi (Cameron)

Buddy, Dahl, walker, Yeo, WHE, butler (Pickett, eddy)

I have $70k in the bank not sure what I should do

    H Lee · 26/04/2017 at 17:15

    i would consider jock's 'retirement' strategy ahaha 🙂 lots of underperforming mid pricers try downgrade one of those to rookie then upgrade another to a premo

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:33

    Is your team called the point chasers?

      KSinny · 26/04/2017 at 18:55


    BeaglieBoy · 26/04/2017 at 19:00

    Have you considered a pointless, futile bout of prayer and self-flagellation?

    redherringfc · 26/04/2017 at 19:15

    You should look to get Danger in asap. This means that Swallow is no longer on field, so use him and someone else to get the money together. You may choose someone else, but you need an ultra premium, you might choose Selwood or Sloane, there are a few Sydney blokes underpriced, but they might not be ultra by end of season.

Sana · 26/04/2017 at 17:14

Forward line is doing my head in. WHE is due to be minced, but I might as well keep the bloke! Outside of Nank, Dahl and Macrae (based on output so far) which fwd options do people think are genuine premos moving forward? Greene? buddy? Lynch? Who's the most reliable?

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:32


    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:36


    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 17:37

    I think greene will see himself suspended for a few weeks at some point during the year. Is lucky it hasn't happened already, he seems so easy to jar up and does some brainless things. He is a good footballer though. i think all 3 will be top 10 forwards. Im firmly of the belief the buddy is on the brink of some big weeks so he's my pick but Lynch is looming and looks like he'll probably challenge buddy and JJK for best key forward next year.

      Sana · 27/04/2017 at 07:43

      Thanks Dildor

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:44

    Would've said Lynch but grab him after the round 9 bye.

    Harry H · 26/04/2017 at 21:40

    I personally don't understand the lack of love for Lynch. The bloke is the best key forward in the comp, hasn't set the world on fire and is averaging 100. He was in round 1 and is a keeper barring injury

      Derek · 26/04/2017 at 22:24

      Key position forward = Buffalo bounce

        Sana · 27/04/2017 at 07:26

        Herein lies the problem Derek. In the past we've been able to get by on Fwds who play in the middle for reliable scoring – the likes of Dusty, Gray, Lids even Danger. Not so straightforward this year… the top 6 Fwds are likely to feature at least a couple of key forwards.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 23:58

    Trav Cloke …pretty reliable …

    Dont think you can go wrong with those 3. N.Roo worth consideration.

      Sana · 27/04/2017 at 07:27

      Cloke! Of course! Where's the thumbs down button? 🙂

LetsGo · 26/04/2017 at 17:32

Is it better to trade out hibberd for Fisher and get some more long term cash generation or trade out Taranto for fisher and get cash now? I don't like having both Barrett and hibberd on my bench not making any money.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 17:36

    Tough choice. Would personally go double downgrade this week as in TT for Hardwick and Hibberd for fisher in order to solve that.

Lenny · 26/04/2017 at 17:54

Whats EVW's job security like?

    whatyasmokin · 26/04/2017 at 17:55

    About the same as Buckley's at the end of this season?

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:02

    He was decent on debut. I reckon he deserves a chance.

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:02

    Pretty low if Durdin gets a week then dumped

Derek · 26/04/2017 at 18:25

anyone interested in Ben Long. i watched the game on tuesday but didn't see him once.

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 18:40

    scores on 22 and 28, might be the first rook in history to lose you money

      redherringfc · 26/04/2017 at 19:04

      Berry went backwards this week. his be was 28 and he got 14. Its very unfortunate that i know this information.

        Derek · 26/04/2017 at 20:33

        Yes. I have him as well

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:01

    Nup, average of 25 he's a shocker.

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:02

    A lot of hype for him around the club so JS probably is ok, but it seems the scoring may not be there

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:08

    Commentators reckon he is "dangerous". With scores of 22 and 28 he is in danger of losing money this week…

    INPieman · 26/04/2017 at 19:18

    There's a reason you wouldn't have seen him on Tuesday. He plays for the saints lol

      Derek · 26/04/2017 at 20:34

      That would explain a lot. Lol

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 19:39

    I would prefer him to Pickett.

    Not going there myself Derek. The Saints have a plethora of mid/small forwards lining up for selection.

    Excited to see what he can do once he finds his feet at senior level but it may be a year away.

BeaglieBoyy · 26/04/2017 at 18:41

Who should my first upgrade target be?????…..I am culling SPP and I can afford anyone…


    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 19:00


    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 19:01

    Wait a week and save yourself $130k for Dusty/Pendles/Treloar and others

      Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:08

      Agree but wouldn't even wait a week. Bring in Dusty/Pendles/Hannebery/Merrett/Treloar. All great picks who will average 110+. Get whoever fits best with your bye structure.

        BeaglieBoy · 26/04/2017 at 19:15

        was thinking that my first upgrade should be to the potential NUMBER ONE mid for the year….who eve that is…..and chase value and fallen premiums after that….after all they are falling for a reason in that they aren't scoring as well as expected…..I don't want a team full of Hannaberys, Parkers etc who are pumping out shit scores no matter how cheap they are

          Derek · 26/04/2017 at 20:35

          Where will you get the money from.

          Kim · 26/04/2017 at 21:47

          Slone and rocky way overpriced like Derek said where is the money coming from? If you keep doing trades like that in a year with not a lot of cash generation available you won't be able to afford to get your team to pull premo anyway. Hanners will pump out 110+ scores from here on out as will jpk. But by all means waste another 130k on rocky and slone. My. Midfield will be at full premo in 2 weeks when I get Pendles cheap as anyway. Sell high and buy cheap, not buy high buddy, SuperCoach 101, like not trading premos out if they are not injured re treloar last week, they always come good.

            whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:53

            Rockliff isn't overpriced

              Derek · 26/04/2017 at 22:20

              Ohhhhhhh yes he is……..

                whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:25

                Not when he is fit and firing. Averaged 130 in 2014.

                Things can change quickly with Rocky though as we know.

              Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:47

              Im not paying 630k for a bloke who will average the same as treloar. For 100k more you get a higher propensity for injury.

              pod · 27/04/2017 at 07:10

              ha ha good one, have another toke

            BeaglieBoy · 26/04/2017 at 22:57

            I agree with u about the price….no question that they are expensive….In the past I have gone for the cheaper options and regretted it in a league Grand Final when my opponent has Rocky/Sloane etc and I have Parker/Sidebottom….it might take a week or two longer to get to full premo but …….

              Rocksta · 26/04/2017 at 23:41

              I agree with that assessment as far as playing for leagues goes. Same thing has happened to me in the past.

          DacZawson · 26/04/2017 at 23:28

          Get Danger then

          Sana · 27/04/2017 at 08:10

          So many assumptions here off such a small sample size. You don't want Hanneberry or Parker? But you want Sloane or Rocky? We're 5 rounds in mate. You could find your self wanting the opposite by seasons end. Be very wary of paying top dollar. There are some proven premos on the cheap right now. Nah the bargains!

            Derek · 27/04/2017 at 08:35

            last year by now everyone was jumping in Hall and Parker. Didn't take long for both to go cool.

          Sana · 27/04/2017 at 13:46

          I think I'll bring in 8 x the potential NUMBER ONE mid! That's my plan!

Darcy Kelly · 26/04/2017 at 18:48

Community, what do we think of;
Parfitt to Fisher
Roughy to JJK

    Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 18:56

    franklins a better pickup imo

      Darcy Kelly · 26/04/2017 at 18:57

      Already have him

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 18:59

    Macrae, Dahl, nank and Greene are better options than JJK.

Chris_Judd · 26/04/2017 at 19:11

Trading SPP to Fisher. Can upgrade WHE to Macrae or move parfitt up forward and bring in Hannebery. Thoughts?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:33

    Either or. Genuinely personal preference. Macrae guaranteed top forward but Hannebery you won't get this cheap again.

Dave · 26/04/2017 at 19:16

What does everyone think top 8 mid will be?

My prediction in no specific order:
Danger Fyfe Pendles Rocky Sloane JPK Selwood Dusty

    marcusproudson · 26/04/2017 at 19:26

    I think tmitch will be top 10

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 20:39

    Danger, Fyfe, Selwood, Pendles, JPK, Hanners, Trelor, TMitch.

    Rocky will get injured plus lions will start getting some belting soon.

    Sloane will be affected by SThompson returning and the return or BCrouch.

      Liam · 26/04/2017 at 21:53

      Mines the same except Bont for Titch.

        Derek · 26/04/2017 at 22:19

        Good call. Very SC friendly

      whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:24

      Same except Sloane and Bont for Titch and Hanners.

marcusproudson · 26/04/2017 at 19:25

So community. Most of the premos who I'll be targeting to bring in soon have the bye in round 11. However if I wait, I'm worried their prices might rise and rookies may have bottomed out well before then. So. Is my best option to keep downgrading rookies to others on the bubble, build a good bank buffet then go nuts after round 11.? Or just get them now… hmmmmmm

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:34

    Moderation. Look to have 7 or less before the bye and then after rd 11 bring them in to cover the rest of your byes! You can't wait until after rd 11 because that would be too late.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 19:57

    Similar conundrum.
    Think I will double downgrade this week and keep a keen eye on Shaw, Gray, Shuey (shhh) and the little master.
    Anyone without the round 11 bye.

      marcusproudson · 26/04/2017 at 20:14

      It's inevitable having one or two zeros for one bye round. Just don't want to get stuck with anymore

Big fact hunt · 26/04/2017 at 19:33

Out WHE Nank into forward and Martin into ruck thoughts

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 19:39

    Like it. However I would be placing guys like Macrae and Dahl in a higher priority to Martin who you will get at a cheaper price eventually. However if you have both of them pull the trigger.

      Big fact hunt · 26/04/2017 at 20:20

      Yeh have both already

    Tibor · 26/04/2017 at 21:01

    Beautiful that's how to play the game well done

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 21:27

    Great move.

HarryO · 26/04/2017 at 19:50

how do people see polsons JS for geelong? apparently chris scott is a fan of him.
on the bubble when he returns from suspension..
open to other rookie suggestions i have to down grade WHE and JOM

    HarryO · 26/04/2017 at 19:54

    parsons* apologies

    Valens_FC · 26/04/2017 at 20:09

    I think he's in a fight with Lang, McCarthy and Parfitt for 2 spots. The other issue is that he's only senior listed due to Gregson being on the LTI. Gregson said to be 5 weeks away – following which he will also be in this fight. Is this enough time? No other LTI players at geelong and there's no other spots on the senior list so there is risk there.

relton · 26/04/2017 at 19:54

is this the week to double down to a couple rookies balic, fisher, black, parson… and spend huge on one or two premos next week when pendles n others drop alot $$$.. thought please community

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 20:17

    Maybe – but would paint the fence both weeks instead in order to keep getting points as quickly as possible.

      BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 20:20

      hold off Black and Parsons for another week, Fisher looks alright and Balic is definitely a shoe-in if named with Stephen Hill out.

    Danners · 26/04/2017 at 21:17

    That's probably what I will be doing, more fallen premos will come like you've said

Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 20:08

Reckon if you don't go this week you might be kicking yourself next.

Sounds like a solid plan, Good luck.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 20:15

    Regarding Reltons comment above.

Shane · 26/04/2017 at 20:13

Trade options taranto out jom out for fisher and i could either go a wines/bont or save some cash and upgrade to a lloyd in def or JKenedy forward to save a little cash thoughts?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 20:18

    TT & JOM for Treloar/Hannebery/Merrett in that order (+fisher)

    BigBoyBananana · 26/04/2017 at 20:22

    You've kept O'meara and taranto for all this time why get rid of them now? Let the boys play I say

garfield_da_cat · 26/04/2017 at 20:43

Franklin to Tgreene or Tuohy to Shaw?
my backline currently consists of laird, adams, docherty, tuohy, marchbank, hampton
forwardline consists of doghouse, nank, franklin, steele, houston, parfitt.

    Dildor · 26/04/2017 at 20:50

    Niether. Waste of valuable trades.

      garfield_da_cat · 26/04/2017 at 20:54

      yeah but franklin is leaking cash and shaw is as cheap as he ever will be and may end up as a top 10 defender

        Ja191 · 26/04/2017 at 21:18

        franklins had no help whatsoever by the midfield – next month should be wins for sydney and franklin should score big. his price is down more the reason to hold onto him

          Holty · 26/04/2017 at 22:31

          Agreed. I have him and no way im trading him now

        Lachy · 27/04/2017 at 08:38

        why on earth would you trade buddy?? The forward line this year is the most lacking, he can easily still be a top 8. As soon as sydney get going, Buddy will be flying.

    whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 20:51

    Youre funnier in the comics.

      Rocksta · 26/04/2017 at 23:15

      I don't know about that. Two sideways trades in the one week………………..That's pretty funny!

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 21:26

    I wouldn't get rid of Tuohy, has just hit some form with scores of 96 and 116. Hold.
    And trading Franklin is a terrible idea.

    Pitch 72 · 27/04/2017 at 07:43

    Buddy against Carlton this week, a real vc option, crazy if you trade him out.

    Gaz · 27/04/2017 at 08:12

    Throwing trades away. Franklin and Tuohy will probably finish in top 6 in their positions. I'd be looking to upgrade Steele to Mcrae at some stage depending on your bye structure.Think Lynch is a must have forward after his bye.

    Moustachio · 27/04/2017 at 09:17

    Why da fek would you trade out Tuohy…

HarryO · 26/04/2017 at 20:56

has eddy got to go? aidyn johnson looks to have done enough to hold out eddy for another week or two atleast. maybe eddy >> balic. disappointing cash generated by eddy is all

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 21:26

    Dixon is dead. Long live Eddy

Adrian · 26/04/2017 at 21:02

ok some really dumb questions…in the most traded this week l can see D.Swallow to A.Black…ones a mid and ones a forward…how does that work…..and their not DPP?

Have l had to many scotches…and also what am l missing why bring in Black when his JS is not on the bubble and it's only one game…what are people seeing that l am not.

Trades l am considering this week. Currently 27 trades

Thinking either

D.Swallow to Fisher
SPP to hanners

This will leave 42k cash


M.Hibberd (nth as not playing and injured) to Fisher
WHE to Balic

Think l might go option 2, and going to leave Balic alone, yes l know on the bubble, but might just wait a week and see how Black goes, or whether Parsons is back in. Leaving WHE in and going against the tide. I'm a geelong fan, and the cats won't let him off the chain…but all l need is for him to hang in there one week, might check the weather if wet he'll go, if dry he'll stay.

This will leave $334k cash, but its a double downgrade and will have to play balic on the field. (fisher on the bench).

Option three is to

M.Hibberd (nth as not playing and injured) to Fisher..is sideways trading a non playing injured rookie a good thing?

hanners will probably smash it against carlton….and swallows going to cost me money to hold.

    Doc · 26/04/2017 at 21:18

    You can go swallow to black if you have another DPP in the forward line currently (eg Pickett)

    Swallow out
    Swing Picket (or other DPP) to mids
    Bring in Black.

    I would go option 1.

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 21:23

    You can trade players with DPP across different lines.

    Click on Swallow to trade him out, then you will see a big S next to other players in your team (those who are DPP) click on the big S and that allows you to bring in a forward

    whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:32

    You can trade Swallow to Black by using a DPP from the fwd line.

    The reason people trade stupidly is they see a high score or scores and just cannot help themselves they are impulsive.

    John James · 26/04/2017 at 21:32

    I think you just need to get rid of both M.Hibberd and Swallow.Fisher and Balic seem the ones to bring in,if you want to keep making cash.

Carl · 26/04/2017 at 21:13

Just about had enough of Jaeger O'Meara. Got $83 500 in the kitty but not 100% sure who to bring in. Also wondering what everyones thoughts on SPP. Hold or move out ASAP?


    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 21:18

    If JOM named have to keep him. Had 30 touches a few games ago. Hawks next 4 games look good.

    whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:29

    Youve had weeks to trade him out……….

Doc · 26/04/2017 at 21:15

Community, who do we think will be the better keeper at D7 for some looped scores later in the season – otten or Hampton?

The other to make way for Docherty.

    whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:27

    So you're trading out Otten or Hampton this week?

      Doc · 26/04/2017 at 22:46

      Was looking to trade one of them to Docherty in a fortnight when doch bottoms out.
      If it is to be Hampton then, may need to cull another cow this week to make sure there is enough cash in the kitty for other premier upgrades as well.

    Holty · 26/04/2017 at 22:29

    I agree with whatyousmokin. They both have a heap more money to make so dont trade either yet if that is your plan.

    Randomcliche2 · 26/04/2017 at 23:37


      whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:23

      Depends if Otten's role changes when Jenkins comes back.

      Honestly I don't think they should even play Jenkins if it means Otten isn't in the forward line.

        Randomcliche2 · 27/04/2017 at 11:39

        I think Otten playing defense is still worth more than Hampton, but yes, you're right that there are risks with him due to Jenkins and Cheney. They are different players, but I think he is just better at footy and better at supercoach.

Didak · 26/04/2017 at 21:21

Hey everyone, just wondering how the breakeven system works.
Once a player scores and we have their breakeven how do we know how much they will rise or decrease in price.
Bit of an odd question but would really love to know.
Thanks heaps.

    Kev · 26/04/2017 at 21:46

    There's a salary calculator over at tooserious, Didak. It's not bang on 100% correct I've found, but good enough

    whatyousmokin · 26/04/2017 at 21:50

    There is a projected score and projected price rise in supercoach click on player profile. Must have supercoach gold. Footy wire possibly has similar.

      SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 22:02

      Thanks guys.

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 22:04

    Have that same question, wondering how much I'll need to go Hampton > Hibberd.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 23:30

    google supercoach break evens . Footywire will probably come up first.

Matthew · 26/04/2017 at 21:26

I've got Roughy, Swallow & Petracca in my team who all have a BE of over 90. Who do i trade out first? Got 176K in the kitty

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 21:31

    Roughy and Swallow. Bring in Macrae and Fisher

      Matthew · 26/04/2017 at 21:34

      I've got Macrae & Dahl allready in my forward line

        Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:42

        Nank? If yes get Treloar/hanners

    Luke · 26/04/2017 at 21:37

    Trade out Roughy first , followed bye Swallow and Petrecca.
    Get in Balic and a premo (hannebery?)

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 21:43

    Roughy and swallow first. Bring in hanners through dropping roughy to hardwick/ Balic/fisher etc.

Luke · 26/04/2017 at 21:43

Here's my team guys I need some tips now that Spencer's out!

Adams, Shaw, Lloyd, often, Hampton, marchbank (Stewart, Newman)

Selwood, Fyfe, Pendles, T.Mitchell, Yeo, Beams, Parker SPP (Barrett, Parfitt, Hibberd)

Sandi,Spencer!! (Preuss)

Buddy, Dahl, Lynch, Steele, Butler, Houston (Begley, eddy)

I have $70k in the bank not sure what I should do

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 22:02

    Downgrade SPP>Fisher and field parfitt, then bring in Nank??

    Randomcliche2 · 27/04/2017 at 00:08

    I think SF4 is about $60k or so short. But would be nice if that could all work out…..

    Spencer to D.Cameron field Pruess (Assuming goldy out injured, but probably do it so long as he is named). This will give you circa $189 to play with.

    Marchy/Steele are the only ones you could drop for Nank. Perhaps Marchy. But I'd go double down Newman to Balic assuming not named and named respectively. Nank will be 20k higher next week, but the week after his 91 will roll out of the avg, and still be a logical buy from a less productive rookie, perhaps Butler/Hampton/SPP/Barrett etc.

    Alternatively you might need to fix that fwd bench (rather than Newman) with balic/harddick.

    PS Begley?

Harry H · 26/04/2017 at 21:45

Everyone seems to writing off Roughy as SC irrelevant. Is that fair? Hawks have a reasonable draw coming up and he was always going to start slowly. Maybe I'm silly but I intend on holding for now

    Derek · 26/04/2017 at 21:48


    Holty · 26/04/2017 at 22:11

    Ive held him since the start and kept saying wait until the hawks win, he will score well. But on the weekend, the Hawks finally won (belted the Eagles as well) Roughie kicked 3 goals and still didnt score 70. Im cutting my losses and trading him for a premo.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:40

    BE of over 100. He will lose you cash and doesn't have a high enough ceiling or consistency this year to justify selection. Upgrade him and cut your losses before you lose $

    Pitch 72 · 27/04/2017 at 07:40

    He's going to leak cash now, move him on.

John James · 26/04/2017 at 21:54

I know I will probably get shouted down,but what do people think of McGrath as a replacement for a non playing rookie,thought he was too expensive at the start,but still going up in price,has job security and scoring alright,so could have on the park with confidence and also a def/mid.

    SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 22:00

    Too late to bring him in. Find some extra cash and bring in a proven premo.

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:39

    Not enough cash gen in him and not a keeper. I don't think its worth the trade.

Liam · 26/04/2017 at 22:07

Is Black's JS good ?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:39

    Not really. look elsewhere this week.

SF4 · 26/04/2017 at 22:20

Out of Simpson, heater, Lloyd or Hibberd who would be the best option?
Say Hibberd puts up another 100, he will be great value at 400k and will save us plenty of cash.
Spend abit more and bring in proven premo in shaw, Simmo or even Lloyd?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:38

    I personally think Lloyd. Playing the best this year and for 100k more you have 7 or games of point scoring to draw of vs hibberd who could be doing a Yeo on us. Looking at all of the older bombers who took a years vacation they look slightly off the pace – so would hold a few more weeks and pay an extra 50k if you have to in order to avoid a spud.

      Andy · 27/04/2017 at 07:26


Chief · 26/04/2017 at 22:28

Out Roughead and Omeara
In T Mitchell and Balic (if named)

Thoughts? Any other mids around $550ish better options Treloar maybe?

    Finnius123 · 26/04/2017 at 22:37

    Like it. Treloar also a good option. Both have same bye and same ceiling. Treloar maybe more established however Titch is more relied upon. This is good for SuperCoach and he may grow into his role during the year increasing point scoring as the number one mid. Treloar has to compete with Pendles & Sidebottom ect. In saying that I reckon they will average very similar, however Treloar is more proven and slightly less injury prone. Really up to you but like the trade in essence.

      Nick · 26/04/2017 at 23:41

      Omeara if named wouldn't change. As he will make you some money.

        Finnius123 · 27/04/2017 at 08:08

        Omeara sucks. Let him be your first upgrade this week as we have no one else to really paint the fence with. If you have Roughie and WHE/Swallow then different. But in my eyes Jaegar is the fourth best upgrade/downgrade option this week.

Andy · 26/04/2017 at 23:17

Is Fishers JS good?

    Nick · 26/04/2017 at 23:40

    Yes it is Carlton are playing the kids and he and a few others are good to stay.

Rocksta · 26/04/2017 at 23:25

I've run various trades and just keep finding myself pushing the Reverse Trades Icon. Not confident about the JS of any of the batch of Rookies on the bubble this week ( Fisher, Hardwick, Balic). Balic has already been dropped once, and the other 2 are hardly setting the world on fire.
I just think its better to wait for the likes of Parson's, Myers and maybe even Black. That said, I realize the need to generate cash to pick up the likes of Pendles, Dusty, Merrett in the next couple of weeks. It's a friggen hard one. Just don't want to trade in anymore Rookies with limited growth.

    Steve · 26/04/2017 at 23:37

    Balic wasn't dropped. He had a minor hip complaint. Rossy really rates him so if fit expect him to line up for the Derby this week.

    Juzzy · 26/04/2017 at 23:39

    Yeah, it's a bi*ch Rock.

    Like most I am contemplating Fisher and Balic. EVW looked pretty good first up. Not a great score but looks like he belongs in that backline.

      Rocksta · 26/04/2017 at 23:55

      Cheers. My biggest problem is that whomever I bring in out of Fisher and Balic or both will be playing on field because of my spud non playing bench in the mid and forward line. I really need Barrett to get a guernsey this week.

      I agree that EVW looked pretty good and will definitely be a target come next week, unless he severely spuds it up this week.

        INPieman · 27/04/2017 at 06:03

        Barrett was a travelling emergency last week & didn't play in the NEAFL, so that's a good sign. I am hoping he is recalled shortly

    WhatsaFtumch · 27/04/2017 at 09:16

    +1 in hoping for a Barrett reprieve and I've also gone back and forth on trades to Balic & Fisher…still thinking of bringing one of them in for Pickett just for cash generation…I don't think Pickett is that bad, it must be a nightmare playing small forward in that Blues side but he just doesn't look like breaking out anytime soon, may just take the money and run and bring in Myers in a few weeks when he's played at least a game or two…he seems to be the pick of the possibles coming up

John · 27/04/2017 at 00:47

Hi all
Thinking sideways-ish double trade

HIggins (I know) and Watson to Neal-Bullen (consistent) and Heppell (I think he has bottomed out). I could go Watson to Oliver but I keep thinking he has to drop away as a second year player. Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 27/04/2017 at 01:20

    Neither are top mids or forwards so what's the point?

    Finnius123 · 27/04/2017 at 08:05

    Mate this trade sucks

50_Shades · 27/04/2017 at 08:22

ok, I've held about 500k cash through the first few rounds whilst cleaning up my rookie selections. Missed on Otten, but got rid of Pickett at the right time.

Now it's time to spend some cash and I'm thinking double upgrade this week. Wanting to paint the fence, but just don't have the faith in this weeks round of rooks in the bubble, so thinking:

Swallow to Hanners
WHE to Macrae

Leaves me $170k and a week to think about cutting O'Meara and a fat calf next week to a premo and next rook. No where near the respectable rankings, but maybe I'll start moving in the right direction.

    Finnius123 · 27/04/2017 at 09:45

    Like it.

    kim · 27/04/2017 at 10:22

    No point having that much cash and not using it so yes you should definitely get both of those 2 in this week, just double check your bye structure though as both macare and hanners have round 11 byes, but they are much better than whe and swallow in terms of point scoring potential.

Jono · 27/04/2017 at 08:35

Thoughts on brining in Tex Walker? Trading out picket/Eddy and deciding between Tex, Lynch or Buddy.

    Ben · 27/04/2017 at 09:37

    Crows mids will get him alot of goals…. I have JJK and Buddy… wish I chose Tex

    Finnius123 · 27/04/2017 at 09:45

    Good call. I brought him in last week. The crows are flying and he is kicking goals as well as getting plenty of entrances inside 50 with some of the best field kicking in the comp. Good pick and good POD IMO, especially as we need to be picking key forwards this year

Ben · 27/04/2017 at 09:36

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

    Welcome to my world gator.
    Don't think you are on your pat Malone here.
    Non playing rookies and cash gen big problem
    Luckily someone may have addressed this in the community pod cast 🙂
    Think Hannan will come in to replace Smith but rest will wait and see what happens at the selection table tonight then make the call.

      gator59 · 27/04/2017 at 10:03

      Yeah good call Trigger.. cheers mate

    Newman and Barrett I'd hold, good chance to be back soon, if not tonight and will make $.

    Hannan may come back this week, still a dud so far, maybe a week off will do him good?

    Pickett and Berry doing SFA, Eddy same, so i'd probably trade, but need to be confident that rookies are ok, maybe wait of Parsons, Myers..

    Option 2 for mine..

    Backline is good, Mids needs improvement , forward line Houston and Butler will be ok on field for a week or 2, swing Parfitt/ pickett fwd.

    JOM and Swallow out soon, Pickett is a dud, SPP, Parfitt just about maxed out as well.

Thoughts on downgrading that dud Pickett to Fisher & Then florent to Balic? Gives me some cash (200k) and I'm hoping Myers becomes available round 7 to play 2 games to hit round 9 where SPP has his bye. SPP down to Myers?

Obviously this requires me to hold onto SPP for a few more weeks, also gives me cash to potentionally upgrade WHE (or parfit) aswell in a few weeks?

My team is currently
Laird, Loyd, Shaw, Otten, Newman, Hampton/Stewart – Williamson
Danger, Zorko, fyfe, treloar, Kell, oliver, beams, SPP/Barrett – Pickett (down to fisher) – miles
Dahl, Nank, Higgins, Franklin, WHE, Parfitt/eddy- florent (down to balic)

I know it's downgrading two rookies but it gives me bench cover and also cash generation (as Pickett generates nothing what so ever) & florent probably won't be playing too much.

Leaves me with 23 trades & 208k.
