PanicRoomRd6

G’day community. Kev here. Welcome. Grab a seat, grab a cookie, grab yourself, I don’t mind. Keep your hands, feet, and any other appendages inside the Panic Room at all times for your own safety.

Our Prince of Panic™, Patch, has jetted off to New Zealand for a few weeks and I know what you’re all thinking. A holiday in April?!! Come on. Wasn’t he kicking back on the Murray River the other week? He’s chucked me the keys to this baby because of my “encyclopaedic knowledge of Simpsons quotes” and there really should be more jobs out there that have the same criteria to be honest.

Now let’s get straight the hot issues. Is Patch really in New Zealand? I have my doubts. This just popped up in my inbox and if you squint really hard and cover your left eye it’s definitely him. Even the beard and everything. So is Patch actually the head of an evil organisation? Yes. Does he carry around sugar in his pockets? That’s classified.

THE NEWS 

PanicRoomRd6B

After the absolute rookie carnage last week we’ve been thrown a bone this week. Even Ross has stepped up to the plate. You’ve read that right community. Ross “Bloody” Lyon has brought back bubble boy Harley Balic for the injured Stephen Hill. So, I dunno, do we be nice to him now?

Zac Fisher is another on the bubble this week after scores of 74 and 51. As is Blake Hardwick after solid contributions of 63 and 65. A handful of rookies will line up for their second game, including Melican (68 last week), Vickers-Willis (51), Black (102), and Ben NcNiece (61). In other rookie news, Tim Smith will miss with a nasty rib injury and West Coast have handed a debut to Kurt Mutimer. A MID only in SuperCoach, he was taken at pick #57 in the 2015 draft.

There’s a lot of changes this week, strap yourselves in. The Dogs have given Matty Boyd a spell for Friday nights clash against the Giants. Tim Taranto is straight back in after his rest.

Hawthorn have resisted the urge to rush back in Tyrone Vickery, baffling that, instead investing in that good sticky tape from Bunnings and fixing up JOM’s knee. Though they’ve lost Cyril to a hip complaint for their clash against the Saints. Koby Stevens will play his first game as a Saint, Ben Long as earned his rest after averaging 25 points so far. Billy Longer has kept Hickey out for another week.

Carlton have dropped three rookies among four outs, Polson, Macreadie, and Pickett making way. Kreuzer returns for those that held. Sydney have made three changes. The most SuperCoach relevant being the return of Nic Newman (!!!) and giving Jordan Foote the night off.

Aidyn Johnson is out after a decent showing last week. Boak has done his hammy and will be out for a bit. Brisbane made some changes but they don’t include bringing back Jake Barrett.

There will be no Swallow’s lining up in the North v GC match. Andrew has been dropped and David is being “rested” (dropped). The Ultimate Burnman, Shaun Higgins, makes his triumphant return. Braydon Preuss has been named as an emergency despite Goldstein’s dodgy ankle.

Sam Mitchell is back and will line up for his first derby.

For the Sunday teams, Essendon have decided against rushing back David Myers, instead adding James Stewart to the extended bench. Their outs shouldn’t affect you. The Dees have Lewis back after his left hook cost him three weeks on the sidelines, Mitch Hannan is back to continue to disappoint you and Cam Pedersen will replace Jake Spencer in the ruck. Our thoughts are with Jesse Hogan after the passing of his father. He’ll miss this week and possibly next.

Collingwood have Matt Scharenberg on an extended bench and will unveil another prized recycled player in Lynden Dunn against Geelong. Sam Menegola returns and Menzel is being rested for the Cats.

In the battle of the teams that are 5-0, the Crows have included Josh Jenkins which could mean an end to Andy Otten’s hot early form. Riley Knight is the only confirmed out with a hamstring injury. Richmond will likely go in unchanged.

TRADING PLACES

I’m sure we’ve all got this nailed down by now but just in case you need a refresher –  the breakeven (b.e) is the score that the player needs to hit in order to increase in value.

I haven’t seen Trading Places so the whole Eddie Murphy/Dan Akroid Akroyd Ackroud [ed note – ask Patch] thing never made a whole lot of sense to me. So this week “Everything’s coming up Milhouse!” is for players on the way up, while “Dig up, stupid!” is for players that have fallen in a hole and are facing a high breakeven this week.

Jock identified some juicy fallen premiums during the week, and LekDog deployed his cheat sheet last night. Both are must reads in my book as we approach the bye rounds.

As always, our resident rookie expert, Barron von Crow has more rookie news than you can poke a stick at in his Scouting Report.

Everything’s Coming up Milhouse!

-64 – Nic Newman

-56 – Zac Fisher

-49 – Blake Hardwick

-38 – Harley Balic

-22 – Tom Williamson

-11 – Tom Stewart

8 – Jack Bowes

14 – Mitch Hannan

Dig Up, Stupid!

196 – Dustin Martin

187 – Scott Pendlebury

180 – Patrick Dangerfield

158 – Nick Riewoldt

154 – Marcus Bontempelli

151 – Alex Rance

133 – Sam Docherty

132 – Taylor Adams

130 – Zach Merrett

130 – JPK

RUCKING HELL

Five rounds in and the rucking landscape is starting to clear up a bit. Stef Martin continues on his merry way, averaging a huge 117 and is only 570k. Grundy struggled in the wet but is still a great pick up, while most coaches would have at least one of Nank, Witts, or Sandi.

Goldstein’s struggles continue. His ankle looked absolutely stuffed last week. He couldn’t put any weight on it and was led off the ground arm-in-arm by the trainers.

The ruck curse continues over at the Dees, with Spencer joining Gawn on the sidelines for the next 6-7 weeks. I’ve read some horror stories on Twitter of those who jumped on Spencer and are now facing another trade.

Mumford has hit absolute beast mode of late, but that’s come against a iffy Goldy, a Ryder-less Port Adelaide, and a “ruckman” by the name of Kurt Tippett. Proceed with caution.

CAPTAIN’S CALL

Captain McCaptainface gets a rest for this week to be replaced by Captain’s Call. A term made famous by our 7th greatest living Prime Minister, Tony Abbott.

If you’re still running with Strndica as your loophole, Freo play Saturday night so there are few options around. Despite being absolutely crap lately, Buddy comes up against the Blues this week. A team that gave up 7 goals and 161SC to Tom Lynch, and 5 goals/139SC to Robbie Gray. He is due.

JPK and Hannebery don’t have fantastic records against the Blues, but Sydney will be looking to kick start their season five weeks after everyone else. Expect them to show no mercy.

Elsewhere, Bont plays on the Friday and should be considered. Marc Murphy has a great record against the Swans and Nick Riewoldt can go absolutely massive on his day.

For the orange I’m looking at Fyfe. He averages 111 in the Derby, including tons in his past 6 against West Coast. On the Sunday, Scott Pendlebury has a 120 career average against the Cats. Including tons in his past 10, yes TEN, games against them. Is he carrying an injury though or a victim of Bucks’ “coaching”? As always, Dangerfield and Selwood are great options.

Alright, that’s me done, community. Good luck for the week and I’ll try to get amongst the comments if you want any last minute advice.

If Buddy stains the underpants you can hit me up on Twitter. Please keep the abuse to an acceptable, un-Heath Shaw like level.

WHE out, Balic in. Holding SPP this week and looking to upgrade a forward using SPP's cash next week.

Pickett is confirmed as this year's Connor Menadue, although Hannan should give him a run for his money.

P.S. Ken Hinkley can you please play Brett Eddy?

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 10:58

    Solid trade.

    SPP unlikely to explode in cash this week, only 5-10k or so. If you can grab a forward that you're happy with pull the trigger on a second trade

    dwhits · 28/04/2017 at 19:06

    Was tossing up between SPP and Parffit, SPP survives one more week..

      Hooksjpg · 28/04/2017 at 19:10

      Why are you trading Parfitt?

Nick · 28/04/2017 at 10:54

Balic or fisher in for swallow? WHE to Greene.
Which rookie would you suggest. I don't have a mid/for in the midfield either. JS is better for fisher I would say.

    LoganJosh7 · 28/04/2017 at 11:11

    fisher has the better JS of the two

    Seeker · 28/04/2017 at 12:36

    I'm not so sure about Fisher' JS. I think Carlton will rotate their young players in and out to get them as much match experience without overwhelming them. So Fisher might be rested/managed/dropped for a Polson, Pickett, Palmer and others return. This means Balic has similar JS and also has DPP status. Just my opinion

      Derek · 28/04/2017 at 12:51

      Love the DPP

Fuzzy · 28/04/2017 at 10:55

What is everybody's trading strategies leading into the byes? The explosion of rookies over the next two weeks makes me think I might go a little bit "downgrade" crazy while I can. Considering bringing in Fisher and Balic this week, then EVW + Black next week.

That will leave me with 21 trades even though I will be yet to make an upgrade. Sounds crazy but I think cash generation (or a lack of) is going to catch a lot of Supercoachers out this year and I want to avoid that.

Thoughts?

    Fuzzy · 28/04/2017 at 11:03

    Then again, I might skip Balic. forget the cash and upgrade go to Franklin. Decisions, decisions.

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 11:07

    There's going to be some big names dropping in price in the coming weeks. Just take a look at the "Everything's coming up Milhouse" column. A few 100k in the bank will come in very handy

    Frankstonphil · 28/04/2017 at 11:45

    I'm with you on the lack of ability to make cash. I missed out on Butler and Newman, but ended up with Pickett, Eddy and Florent so I'm trying to make money where I can then go bang bang before the byes. Only downgrades at this stage and hope for some point generation from these rookies.

    Travo · 28/04/2017 at 11:54

    I am in the same boat Fuzzy!
    I want to do the Franklin trade but not completely confident. Might be best to generate cash and pick up a Dusty and/or Pendles in the coming weeks.

      Fuzzy · 28/04/2017 at 14:43

      Great point so I don't know why I have gone the other way. I have chosen Fisher and Franklin. Sydney/Franklin play Carlton, Brisbane and NM in the next 3 weeks… surely he will go big. The Swans always bounce back … or so I keep telling myself.

    Krazee-Eyez Killa · 28/04/2017 at 16:32

    No strategy re: byes. just let it ride and see what happens. bound to get some good scores maybe one or two or the weeks, then crap the other.

    Regarding cash generation, that's my intent too. haven't upgraded anybody yet and still averaging 2200+. some cash to be made soon so I'm sticking with my team for now and will build a kitty and then try pounce on some fallen premos

    Bock Choy · 28/04/2017 at 16:57

    Taking the opportunity to clean out another non playing rookie (Mountford) and have also downgraded (slightly) from Eddy. I was originally going to trade Pickett (and pocket the extra $20k) but figure as part of Carlton's development, he'll be back before too long and will pick up some more snail-like price increases.

      Bock Choy · 28/04/2017 at 16:59

      Meant to say, Eddy was downgraded to Fisher, chosen due to the greater job security in comparison to Balic.

    Josh · 28/04/2017 at 19:25

    Yet to make an upgrade hey. My strategy is paint the fence weekly and race to premo all depends on whether you are a league or rank man

    Mal · 29/04/2017 at 07:45

    Thinking the same thing need to get the decent rookies in when available. Balic & fisher this week then EVW & parsons/black next week then go bang bang on upgrades until this next batch of cows fatten

Jack · 28/04/2017 at 11:00

Already got fisher.
Balic in Pickett out.
I've got Gaff and Shiel, either I can trade for hanners.
What should I do????

    Jkoel · 28/04/2017 at 17:51

    keep both! they are scoring well and there is no need to trade them out

LoganJosh7 · 28/04/2017 at 11:02

trading in fisher and balic most probably.

but do i go like for like by getting rid of eddy and pickett?

or gain some cash for next week by looking at getting rid of roughy/WHE/Swallow?

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 11:19

    If you can cover Eddy and Pickett with your bench this week I'd paint the fence this week with two of Rough/WHE/Swallow. Only 65k gained from trading Eddy and Pickett. Tough times

      LoganJosh7 · 28/04/2017 at 11:52

      yeah its painful buttttt cant actually seeing either of them getting a game for a few months from now on?

        The Blacksheep · 29/04/2017 at 08:31

        This is exactly what I am thinking of doing Logan. Especially when i look at my midfield bench and see Swallow, Pickett & Barrett all sitting there not making any money. Need to be generating cash early in the season.

Ando · 28/04/2017 at 11:15

SPO to Ballick, is DSwallow to Wines a good move??

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 11:58

    Like it, Ando!

babo · 28/04/2017 at 11:31

Why Is Z.Fisher so sought after among others?

Have we considered his JLT scores?

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 12:02

    I'd put more weight behind his efforts in the real stuff, babo. Averaging almost 15 possessions from 69% game time is good enough for me

      Babo · 28/04/2017 at 12:18

      Thanks for your logical thoughts kev

david · 28/04/2017 at 11:41

should i
a. trade out WHE and SPS for hannebery and balic, having Taranto as an E for tonights game, then if he scores well through DPP can take his score and take otten,newman,hampton off the field

or
b. trade out taranto and SPS for hannebery and balic, and have WHE onfield. even though he wont provide much more cash over th next few weeks, he could provide some more consistent and larger scores?

    LJB · 28/04/2017 at 12:42

    Not sure what tarantos breakeven is but I think it's around what he's been averaging same with WHE, so then think if in both trades you're getting hanners, then out of WHE and Taranto who will score more for you this week and there's your answer

      Derek · 28/04/2017 at 12:50

      It's 38

        david · 28/04/2017 at 13:06

        or do i tradeout butler?

          whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 13:13

          Butler 29 BE. Don't trade him out. Do you check breakevens?

            dave · 28/04/2017 at 15:10

            i understand that, however i feel that butler is going to struggle big time with adelade, say he scores in the 50s then he is only going to go up a tiny bit, and his cash generation will be similiar to what i expect from WHE

Wal · 28/04/2017 at 11:42

How ye all like these moves?

Swallow to Fisher and WHE to JPK?

    Jack · 28/04/2017 at 11:52

    Don't go JPK with his BE 130.
    Treloar hannes I reckon would be better for $$$

      Wal · 28/04/2017 at 12:51

      Already have Treloar, considered Hannas but think JPK is safer, also reckon JPK is a great shout to get at least 120 vs Carlton so reckon it might be a difference of $5k – $10k in the end if that

        whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 13:04

        Swallow and WHE have forced your hand and if you want JPK over Hanners I say do it.

          Jack · 28/04/2017 at 13:22

          Lachie Neale is also a very good option

Westy · 28/04/2017 at 11:46

SPS and Spencer out (yes I know) 🙁
Fisher and Balic in.

Jack · 28/04/2017 at 11:48

Treloar looks too cheap to pass up.
Trade SPP to Balic,
Move Nank to ruck and trade witts to get Treloar.
Thoughts please

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 13:03

    Witts still scoring well seems a waste to trade him but up to you.

Chevy · 28/04/2017 at 12:00

No sloane as a captain option?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 13:02

    You can captain whoever you want?

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 13:06

    Doesn't have a great record against the Tigers, Chevy. Lambert has quietly gone about locking down opposition midfielders if they get off the chain. Although his current form and record at Adelaide Ocal is a huge plus.

    Consider if no one else strikes your fancy this week

Rick Grimes · 28/04/2017 at 12:06

Who do we feel is the better long-term option, Fisher, Hardwick or Balic? All averaging bout the same, does either have better JS or higher ceiling?

    Big M · 28/04/2017 at 12:49

    I'm thinking (hoping) Fisher

    LoganJosh7 · 28/04/2017 at 12:54

    balic the least

    Babo · 28/04/2017 at 12:58

    I've gone against the grain and opted for Hardwick over Fisher. (surprised there haven't been more jokes relating these two)

    Not convinced that Fisher can avg more than 50sc and Hardwick's DE seems more refined aiding his continuing on-field presence.

    Balic also in.

      Kyle · 28/04/2017 at 14:04

      I have a feeling hardwick is gonna get pushed out if the team by duryea soon mate. Thats the reason im not looking too closely at him.

Patch · 28/04/2017 at 12:06

Beautiful stuff, Kev! The Panic Room is certainly in capable hands while I'm… otherwise occupied…. totally not taking over neighbouring nations. No… *shifty eyes*

    Steeeve · 28/04/2017 at 12:20

    Bring the community home a souvenir from the hammock complex!

Big G · 28/04/2017 at 12:12

Trade out Barrett or Pickett?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 12:59

    Pickett

    Seeker · 28/04/2017 at 13:04

    Barrett will surely be back and do well. Pickett is a ball watcher IMO (stands outside a pack hoping the ball comes his way). As it is, I'm holding both as I'm culling two ripe cash cows (WHE & Parfitt)

      whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 13:12

      Parfitt not quite ripe enough. One 60-70 and he's making cash again.

    LoganJosh7 · 28/04/2017 at 13:05

    pickett 100%

      Big G · 28/04/2017 at 13:14

      Agree. Thanks for the 40 grand price rise Mr Pickett and good luck with your career in the 2's.

    SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 23:11

    yep, pickett.

Gibbs · 28/04/2017 at 12:18

Do I go Balic or Blake hardwick?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 12:59

    Balic

    SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 23:12

    Balic

Steeeve · 28/04/2017 at 12:19

VC going to Heath Shaw this week. If you know why you might consider it too.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 13:20

    Loves playing the Dogs.

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:31

    You're depressed and want to end it all?
    Different Kev

Stewy_the_Swan · 28/04/2017 at 12:24

Swallow + WHE or Roughy -> Hanners + Fisher or Balic???
Which way to go community?? Have reversed trades about 6 times already this week. Thoughts are appreciated

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 12:59

    Hanners and Fisher.

    Out of WHE and Roughy to cull I don't know.

    Seeker · 28/04/2017 at 13:08

    Of the three, Swallow & Roughy, just. WHE might just make, or just miss his BE

fionaamudala · 28/04/2017 at 12:44

Jobe Watson and Roughy to Fisher and Hanners… Yay or Nay?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 12:56

    Yay

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 13:20

    Yay

    Seeker · 28/04/2017 at 13:21

    Yay!

    fionaamudala · 28/04/2017 at 14:55

Ranked1 · 28/04/2017 at 12:56

Grappling hard over the forward line decision to get a ballick or a harddick? Can't get my head around it, any help out there?

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 13:19

    I'd go Balic, reckon he has better job security. Birchall coming back soon for Hawthorn which could force Hardwick out.

Winter · 28/04/2017 at 13:03

Bring in Buddy or Macrae this week
Leaning towards Macrae only to make tonight's game more interesting

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 13:10

    I'd go Buddy, Winter. Swans have Blues, Lions, North, Saints, Hawks in the next 5 weeks. Macrae is overpriced currently I feel

dnoyes · 28/04/2017 at 13:09

Should I put the vc on Hannebery or Franklin? I've got danger as captain.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 13:19

    Who else have you got? I'd VC Fyfe personally, but can understand going a bit left field with Hanners or Buddy.

      dnoyes · 28/04/2017 at 13:40

      I do have Fyfe, but I'm not sure his scoring potential will be as good as the Sydney boys considering that Freo have the Derby, while Sydney have Carlton.

        jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:22

        He's got a pretty good record against the Eagles. Hasn't gone less than 107 against WC in his last five games against them. Add that to the fact West Coast don't really have a decent ruckman at the moment so Sandi will just be feeding it to him. Not saying going with one of the guys you mentioned is a bad idea though.

jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 13:13

Need some feedback from the community about which rookies to play on field this week.

Defence – Hampton or Newman

Midfield – Two of: Powell-Pepper, Parfitt, Fisher and Balic

    John James · 28/04/2017 at 15:56

    I'm wondering the same thing jez_m,I've gone with Newman on the field with Hampton as emergency,and have Powell-Pepper and Parfitt on the field in the mids with Fisher as my mid emergency and Bali on the field in the fwds with Taranto as emergency,Both my emergencies can end up being used if they get good scores due to non playing rookies,Barrett in the mids and Eddy in the fwds.

      SCathiest · 28/04/2017 at 16:42

      You'll need to be on the ball for the Barret/ Fisher loophole. Carlton game ends as Brisbane starts?
      Or I may have confused myself.

        jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 16:53

        Correct SCathiest, Carlton won't have finished their game before the Brisbane vs Port game. I considered that move myself, but it's a risky play if you forget to check the scores before 4pm.

        John James · 28/04/2017 at 17:36

        You are right on SCathiest the Carlton game will be ending as the Brisbane one starts,no problem,if Fisher is going well for a rookie 75+ I will move Barrett on to the field before the Bris v Port game,if Fisher is being a spud I will just leave it as it is.

SirSamuel016 · 28/04/2017 at 13:17

Traded Swallow for Hanners and Pickett for Balic. Probably going to go Danger as Captian, but not sure who to put the vc on out of Hanners, TMitch, or Fyfe.
Best of luck with the round lads!

Andrew · 28/04/2017 at 13:19

Thoughts on Swallow to Balic and Taranto to Hannebery? Otherwise can hold Taranto to see how he goes tonight and go SPP to any mid 530k and under (likely Parker or Ward but not sure if they'll be top 10 for rest of season).

And in addition, who to start as F6 this week, Parfitt or Balic – unable to loophole.

    John James · 28/04/2017 at 23:14

    I would have Balic as F6 take Parfitt's score against the Dees out and he's done bugger all.I did have Balic on the fwd line but also had Taranto as my fwd E so Eddy will be taking his place. I will then move Balic to the mids and Parfitt to the fwd bench.Have Fisher as mid E so if he gets 75+ will then loophole Balic for Barrett.Sorry got off track,I would also just trade Swallow to Balic,give Tarranto and SPP another week to see how they go.

Borko · 28/04/2017 at 13:22

Is Gunston a realistic trade in option? Underpriced and historically a very solid and durable scorer?

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 13:30

    If Hawks start winning he will be good

    Eric_the_Red · 28/04/2017 at 13:51

    I've had him since the start. Has been frustrating. But I agree with Derek, when the hawks come good so will he

      RickeyRat · 28/04/2017 at 14:01

      Prettyt sure Hawks don't play Eagles every werk at the G so unlikely they will come good and their era is well and truly over,Better options than Gunston.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:26

    Traded him in for Barlow after Round 2 last year and it was nearly my best trade of the year. When Hawthorn are up and about (and Clarko isn't stuffing him around on a wing) he scores well. He hasn't finished the season with a less than 90 average for the last three years, so I reckon he's definitely a POD.

Benjamin B · 28/04/2017 at 13:26

$273k in the bank.
Should I go roughy to macrae or roughy to a premo mid? If a premo mid then who is best bet.

Team:
Danger, treloar, bont, Fyfe, hanners, beams spp, fisher
Dahl, yeo, buddy, WHE, roughy, butler

    HarryO · 28/04/2017 at 14:05

    watch cripps closely he's nearly 100%. his cheap for what he is and a stud

      Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 00:37

      He was unduly wincing under some tackles for someone nearly 100% last week….but yeah, getting better slowly but surely

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:27

    Go for Macrae

Ben · 28/04/2017 at 13:27

Which combination should I do?
SPP or WHE to Balic? and
Murphy to Hanners or Yeo to Macrae?
Thanks

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 14:01

    Murphy is listed as playing. Yeo has one bad score and easily attainable BE of 79.

    Murphy out I suppose but you should probably just hold.

      Ben · 28/04/2017 at 14:04

      Murphy probably won't get his BE of 142 though while hannebery has an achievable Be of 109, so if I hold then I won't be saving as much cash. Think Murphy could end up being a keeper? cus if not then I might as well trade him for Hannebery who would be right?

        whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 14:33

        Yeah Murphy to Hanners sounds alright.

Shannon · 28/04/2017 at 13:32

Hey all. Can I get some opinions on this trade?

D.Swallow to Sloane (or Zorko?)
J.Roughead to Balic

Thoughts appreciated!

    HarryO · 28/04/2017 at 14:03

    chase a fallen premo around 550-600. sloane is far to expensive. spend wisely shannon

    RickeyRat · 28/04/2017 at 14:04

    Actually like those trades Sloane or Zorko and time for Roughie to go Balic will nearly score what Roughie is now so paint the fence.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:28

    I'm a massive wrap for Zorko. Hasn't posted a score of less than 109 yet and he hasn't really moved far from his starting price. Sloane is way overpriced at the moment.

FEARTHEBEARD · 28/04/2017 at 13:32

Lads Taranto or Parfitt or Powell-Pepper out?

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 13:44

    Parfitt

      FEARTHEBEARD · 28/04/2017 at 14:06

      Thanks any particular reason?

    FEARTHEBEARD · 28/04/2017 at 14:06

    Anyone else would love a few opinions. I currently went with Taranto, now not sure!

    Fuzzy · 28/04/2017 at 14:21

    SPP plays Brisbane this week and with Boak [and, although unlikely, possibly Ebert] out, might get a little bit more midfield time so I'm sticking with him. Plus, even if he coughs up a score of 60, it will do for one more week.

    So toss up between Parfitt and Taranto. Taranto has the lowest breakeven but his job security is low and with Coniglio + Whitfield coming back, I can't see him remaining in the team for long. Depending on your long-term strategy, I would say goodbye to Taranto because he is going to be "managed" in a fortnight or so anyway so you will need to get rid of him then (in my humble opinion).

      Fuzzy · 28/04/2017 at 14:22

      Turns out their breakeven's are one apart (Taranto 38, Parfitt 39). So I would be trading out Taranto.

        INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 15:05

        Coniglio & Whitfield due back in the next could of weeks. Someone will need to make way

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:29

    I've got all three and are holding all of them. Taranto being fresh off a break could bob up with a 70-80 and I think the other two can be held for at least this week.

Jim · 28/04/2017 at 13:33

SPP and Pickett to Fisher and Balic, bank $160, leaves cash to upgrade mid prices to Treloar/Danners and Sloane/ Selwood next week.
Thoughts?

Derek · 28/04/2017 at 13:40

Of the Fallen Premiums, there are none who are a No-Brainer.

The ones on my watch list are Simpson, Shaw, JJK, JPK, Pendles, Buddy. Add Hanners, Trelor and TMitch (already have)… there are none with BE under 100.

Simmo 102 and JJK 101 are closest.

Cash is verything this year and most people understand they need to squeeze every last cent out of the rookies, the same needs to be done for the fallen premiums, wait wait wait for the lowest point.

No problem if people feel this is the time, im just saying there isn't any that are screaming PICK ME this week.

    dnoyes · 28/04/2017 at 13:59

    I agree that there aren't any obvious premium picks this week. Personally I've gone for Buddy as I think there is a decent chance that he will get a big score against carlton this week, and because I want to save space in my midfield for when massive bargains like Pendles and Dusty come up. Also because the top 6 forwards look hard to pick aside from Dahlhaus, Macrae and the Nank.

    THE SALTSHAKERS · 28/04/2017 at 14:03

    no there isnt in premos but plenty of rookies

    Moustachio · 28/04/2017 at 15:06

    But if you wait for the big score that reverses it, you miss that score… Eg heaters 20 last year

      Wal · 28/04/2017 at 16:50

      That's it Moustachio, gotta be ahead of the game, why would I wait a week on JPK to maybe save another $10k when he has the potential to go massive against the Blues this weekend

    FCAbel · 28/04/2017 at 17:02

    I'm thinking buddy this week, pendles next week and hold for a while. Jpk also on radar. Thoughts?

Mitch · 28/04/2017 at 13:43

im tossing up between a couple options:
option 1:
OUT- Taranto & D.Swallow IN- Hardwick & Buddy with $32k leftover

option 2:
OUT- Taranto & D.Swallow IN- Hardwick & fisher with $470k leftover

kind of leaning towards option 2 due to my cash generation issues and having an eye on pendlebury/dusty in a couple weeks time and probably upgrading houston next week to buddy

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 13:44

    1

    LJB · 28/04/2017 at 13:54

    Hold Taranto will get his breakeven and if you've had enough of swallow ditch him for one of fisher/hardwick through DPP
    Franklins BE is 120 odd so even if he turns it on, will either hold or slightly increase but if he scores like he has or 100ish he will decrease
    Next week trade Taranto for frankin when theoretically they will be closer with Taranto at max and franklin at min

    HarryO · 28/04/2017 at 14:01

    2. im with you here mitch gonna try generate the cash and i like the idea of picking off pendles/dusty in coming weeks also

phil · 28/04/2017 at 13:48

i can bring any midfielder this week and am not sure who to get
already have danger, selwood, fyfe, hanners, beams, treloar

    THE SALTSHAKERS · 28/04/2017 at 14:03

DavidSA · 28/04/2017 at 13:58

Urgh what we think about poor Barrett?
Hold or fold
Don't want to miss out on his potential cash gen but at the same time need to make money during bye rounds

    HarryO · 28/04/2017 at 14:18

    hold, i am

    INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 15:00

    He was in the round 1 team so hold him a bit longer I'd suggest. If he's not back in a few weeks & someone like Meyers comes along give him the flick

    Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 19:15

    Hold. He has to get a chance soon. When he does he will repay those you have been patient.

HarryO · 28/04/2017 at 13:59

riteo.. im in a pickle i cant decide whether i
A) make lots of cash for next weeks premium pick off and down grade WHE > balic & swallow/JOM > fisher (430k in bank)
or
B) B.eddy (doesnt look likely to play soon) >balic & swallow/JOM > fisher (230k in bank)

want to chase fallen premos in coming weeks so A) is tempting but eddy is frustrating me!! help me community

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 14:14

    a

    John · 28/04/2017 at 14:48

    I'm going for cash generation,like the idea of cash in the bank ready for trading in the premos as you see fit,so option one for me.

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 00:42

    I did more of a b) scenario, wanting to get more cash gen rather over cash in bank, meaning I'm trading spud who don't play like Barrett/Eddy etc

FEARTHEBEARD · 28/04/2017 at 14:07

Nice one Kev.
Love Kevs Klangers. (That is what I am rolling with)
Seriously have everyone had a look at the names in the dig up? Half a team right there.
Start licking get your lips and planning on how to get some of these bargains into your team in the coming weeks. laughing like a fat spider.
With more potential rookies on the horizon it is a great time to be alive.

Can we call you hojue err sorry patchjue?

    Captain Risky · 28/04/2017 at 14:40

    Plenty of upgrade targets coming through, not a lot at the bottom end though.
    Next week on the bubble potentially –
    DEF- Melican, Vickers Willis & McNiece
    MID- 0
    FWD Black & Potentially Parsons

    The week after nothing but Mutimer (MID) I think.

    So this is the week to cash out midfielders I'm thinking.

relton · 28/04/2017 at 14:22

mmhm need 2 of the following.. fisher, hardwick and balic.

    INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 14:48

    Fisher & Balic

    Bevo · 28/04/2017 at 14:59

    That is an amazingly insightful and well structured question that frankly I feel unqualified to answer, but will attempt to do so anyway.

    Now, you started with the well known "mmhm" noise which generally denotes that you're probably sidetracked doing 'something else' as we politely call getting your fap on to some pr0n. So I'd say you should start by slapping yourself further north until you've actually focussed on SC this week.

    From there, at first I thought you might be asking which of the 3 you should target to draft this week, but then realised you'd deftly not asked that actual question, or any other actual questions, leaving me to ponder your intent. I decided that your subtly underlying theme here was actually looking at replacement options as coach for Collingwood when they unceremoniously allow Eddie and Bucks to fall on each others swords (given the obvious mutual 'support' they've shown) requiring a new coach and/or president.

    This suddenly made much more sense, and cleared up that you were identifying Damien Hardwick and Carrie Fisher as potential coaching targets, with Damo currently out of contract at the end of the year and Carrie certainly a left field option. I checked though, and although uncontracted, Carrie is not actually available in a kind of left this mortal coil way, although I'm with you on her potentially still being a better coach and obtaining better results than Bucks. I do believe, however, that recently retired Sam Fisher is available and honestly couldn't be a worse choice than Bucks either, and may be your intended Fisher anyway.

    Balic threw me a little, as I was only familiar with Harley Balic who's currently playing for Freo and doesn't seem an obvious or available choice for coach or president. A little research thought turned up Ivano Balic, an internationally renowned and highly successful Croatian, world and Olympic handballer. Your brilliance in again identifying a left field target who could bring some sound coaching skills to Collingwood, clearly providing arguably some of the best coaching on how to handball available in the world and probably the solar system, something Collingwood could certainly use.

    I assume the plan is to get two of these options in to the club, ostensibly with one in the presidents role and the other as coach, presumably with the player most qualified to coach landing the Presidents role and the loser ending up with the worst coaching job in AFL currently (we'll give Rocket and Horse the benefit for now).

    My hat is off to you man, and I hope you share some further thoughts with the community in future, I for one will be staying tuned to catch any more finely crafted pearls of almost obscure wisdom you have for us 'unworthies' to ponder and attempt to decipher.

      The Ranger · 28/04/2017 at 15:10

      Blimey! Who knew that the head coach of the Doggies was such an eloquent writer and a keen reader of this website?!
      Any more words of wisdom Bevo? Should I stick the VC on Dahl this week?
      Sorry, that's Luke Dahlhaus. He plays for you.
      And VC means vice-captain.
      Thanks in advance.
      Man.

        Bevo · 28/04/2017 at 15:44

        Sadly I'm a different Bevo, and won't get sidetracked on the lack of originality if you happen to have any surname starting with "bev". No that I'm uncomfortable with Bevo, sure beats nicknames like "Shitty", "Munter" and "Jizza" especially when you're in polite company.

        That aside, and thank you for clarifying t'was Dahl and not the term of endearment "Darl' or any sort of Indian fare usually lacking in meat.

        With my record for picking a winner for the VC or C this year, I'd probably be better off telling you who I have put them on and you should just avoid those options. I could probably stick a VC on a bowl of Dahl and score better.

        I've VC'd Smurf this week and Kennedy for the big C. Although Kennedy let me down badly last week and certainly was a Big C in the end. I considered VC on Dahl though, and t'was a toss up between him and Smurf, my even considering Dahl may well have put the kiss of death on his score though so be careful.

        As an aside, has anyone noticed how often Dahl seems to feel the need to dive/fall over and handball? Bloke spends more time literally horizontal on the ground than most players vertically. Scores alright though, well, at SC anyway. Probably scored better off the field when he was going the Jack Sparrow look.

neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 14:22

Pendles and Hanners probably only have a week left before rising Simson 460 is bargain priced as is Shaw These are the 4 immediate trades ins but Dereks correct 1 or 2 at most weeks left The decision will be whether to prematurely culling McGrath Otten and Hampton to get them……Mathematics at work

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 14:31

    You'd have to be an absolute dunce to cull Otten, McGrath or Hampton early BE's of 2-12. There's no maths to do there Neil.

      dave · 28/04/2017 at 15:13

      i am most likely moving otten on next week. with jenkins back in the side i expect that ottens average scores will be approx 70ish.. and with the likes of hampton, newman and marchbank still scoring well i think its not the worst option

        Moustachio · 28/04/2017 at 16:44

        Yes it is

        whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:17

        But you don't know that yet. The BE's are far too low to be moving these guys on yet. They could make 30-200K for all we know. It's just plain foolish.

      Daniel Z · 30/04/2017 at 12:50

      In his defense, if Otten does end up on 70's (even if it's for 1-2 weeks), his cash generation is done.
      Culling him pre-round 6 would be ridiculous but starting next week, it makes more sense (unless he smashes another good score obviously).

Tom · 28/04/2017 at 14:27

Balic or Parfitt on field?

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:32

    Can you loophole one of them? If not, I'd probably go with Parfitt.

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:47

    Balic for me. Kid is a prolific ball gatherer and has eased well into afl footy

jonesy · 28/04/2017 at 14:30

hardwick or balic gents??
is balic only in for stephen hill and likely to be dropped again??
i know nothing about this hardwick :/

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:27

    Balic for mine. Surely Ross has confidence in the bloke to bring him straight back in. But… it's Ross

Top hawk · 28/04/2017 at 14:31

Hanners in this week for D Swallow OR Shaw in this week for D Swallow via DPP. Bloody driving me nuts. Leaning to go Hanners and perhaps Marchbank to Shaw next week. Although Shaw plays well against the dogs and hanners history against the blues not great.

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:46

    Hanners

LJB · 28/04/2017 at 14:32

Does anyone know how long Robbie Fox will be out for?
TBC on injury list with a knee want to hold if only missing a week or so more with his BE but if serious would be keen to swap to fisher, any info would be ace!
Thanks

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:24

    The knee wasn't serious, LBJ. Problem is he was put back on the rookie list when Papley returned. I'm not sure how the Swans list shapes up, but I figure if there was room to keep him on the senior list they would have done so

    Moustachio · 28/04/2017 at 16:43

    Pretty sure he is demoted to rookie list, he cannot play unless there is another LTI to replace

INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 14:40

Sensational Kev. Oh boy am I offering my nuts to the gods with trades this week

    Soothsayer · 28/04/2017 at 14:47

      INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 15:07

      I'm hearing ya. But we never learn do we. Absolute suckers for value

        The Ranger · 28/04/2017 at 15:16

        I've found myself bringing in a Freo rookie this week.
        That's def weird.

          INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 16:07

          Part of my madness ranger. Ross will toss him next week for sure

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:22

    Thanks, Pie. I'm the same, usually I lock in my trades pretty early but I'm flipping back and forth this week. These bloody useless rookies are making it hard to get the influx of discounted premo's that are being offered up

      INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 17:16

      5 donuts on the pine isn't pretty

        Youngy · 28/04/2017 at 18:48

        Only 5? wish I had only 5

Soothsayer · 28/04/2017 at 14:43

OK Community I'd love to hear your thoughts:

Do Swallow & Roughy need to go this week?

If so, is it better to bring in Hanners, Treloar or Selwood?

The rookies discussions are all covered above.
Also, does anyone else struggle with a job and family that just keep trying to steal your day to day commitment away from Supercoach? Can we get some sort of ….scholarship system going to allow people the appropriate focus on SC? maybe a crowd fund for struggling players?

    AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2017 at 14:59

    Maybe not both this week, but i feel they should be removed from your team as quickly as possible. Selwood is an amazing POD but he's quite expensive, Hanners looks to be getting back to his best, and treloar is a gun but his disposal efficiency worries me (although he did improve against essendon). Personally I'd go hanners, proven SC beast.

    INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 15:14

    I'd spit swallow. Who knows how long it will take for him to make a decent price. Hanners a good option. But Selwood is in beast mode. Tough call. Perhaps value is the better oiption

    The solution is quit you job & work for yourself, then get divorced & join Tinder. Frees up time & ticks all the boxes. I'm happy with the results

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:45

    Like the trade. Treloar would personally be my target.

Ziiglar · 28/04/2017 at 14:50

Fox gets another gig this year? Thinking gotta get him out now can have 2 non playing mids on bench
Fox out over Barrett

    INPieman · 28/04/2017 at 15:15

    Back on the rookie list isn't good news for him

    Moustachio · 28/04/2017 at 15:32

    Needs another LTI to get called back up. I've got him, but need to ditch those who are actually going to lose cash first.

Holty · 28/04/2017 at 14:50

Roughy and WHE out, Balic and Fisher in. Parsons in next week if selected. Then its waiting time on 3 premos i have my eyes on. Hoping i will generate enough cash from other trades to get them in.

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:45

    I would be wary of doing that. Try and get your premos in as quickly as possible so you don't leak points early compared to the rest of the comp. Going bang bang bang in rd ten is nice, however you are already well behind

min0008 · 28/04/2017 at 14:52

Thoughts on these two trades:
WHE to Fisher (bringing Dahlhaus in fwds) and Pickett to Balic. this will leave me with around 320k in the bank with 25 trades left.
This will then allow me to upgrade SPP to Docherty next week barring he doesn't score 132 and SPP scores 60 and moving Hibberd in the midfield.

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:44

    Like it

    Daniel Z · 30/04/2017 at 12:57

    Based on their scores this round, looks like Docherty will be about $573k and SPP will be $251,373.

    Hopefully you can still afford it (or wait another week for SPP if you have someone else to cull).

LEKD0G · 28/04/2017 at 14:54

    The Ranger · 28/04/2017 at 15:02

    Surely it must be seven?!

      Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:19

      It's 7! There was about 5 in a 24 month period and I'm not 100% certain none of them were assassinated

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2017 at 14:54

Is anybody keeping an eye on Patty Cripps? Just about bottomed out in price and is becoming match fit, If he scores well this week i might paint the fence with Taranto -> Black and SPP -> Cripps next week.

    Holty · 28/04/2017 at 15:13

    Ive had him since the beginning and yes he is starting to look better. I think lekdog mentioned his concerns with Cripps is Carlton will get pumped more often then not which will affect his scores

      Daniel Z · 30/04/2017 at 12:58

      I don't really buy that rationale – they weren't winning a lot of games last year and he still scored well.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:35

    Yeah I'd hold off on Cripps for another week. B/E still 119.

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 16:07

    I love Paddy, AB. I was hoping he would start his upswing after his bye. If he backs up this week I'll jump on

KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 14:57

Hey guys I have swallow and WHE and have 70k in the bank wondering if I should double downgrade to Balic and Hardwick or downgrade one and upgrade either swallow or WHE to a premo. If I double downgrade leaves me with $473k cash for an upgrade next week and probably another in 2 weeks to danger or pendles. Thoughts?

Chuck the C on Dusty this week. According to footywire he has a 2% chance of reaching his breakeven of 196. If Dusty even gets near his b/e it'll be huge. To compare, they've given Danger no chance of reaching his 180 b/e, and no chance for Pendles 187 b/e.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 28/04/2017 at 15:38

    May the odds be forever in your favor dusty.

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:38

    Dunno if he'll go large this week to be honest. Only one ton in his last four games at the Adelaide Oval. In saying that, it was a big ton (151).

The_Black_Mamba · 28/04/2017 at 15:12

Who has better JS. Balic or Hardwick?

    jez_m · 28/04/2017 at 15:38

    Balic for mine.

Goals · 28/04/2017 at 15:14

Trade whe or Roughead this week?

    Holty · 28/04/2017 at 15:43

    Both. Thet are my trades this week

      Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:41

      agreed

        Spanner · 28/04/2017 at 16:59

        Who are you bringing in?

          Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 17:01

          Macrae and balic

TRIGGER HAPPY · 28/04/2017 at 15:15

Trigs Happy place contests this week.

LEK v TRIGGER HAPPY
Billy v INPieman
Gator v Liam
Neilisdemonsdelights v SC Addict
Shake n bake v dontblushbaby
Patch v BVC
Swans2012 v Kev
Tophawk v Rick Grimes
Jock v Mo

That last one is a big one. The Mighty Mo V the Juggernaut that is Jock
Will Neil who top scored last week with a mammoth 2,395 give Addict his first loss of the year and see Addict fall from the top of the ladder?

No easy games earn your keep, get down and dirty in the trenches. Might be time to pull the old winning move. As this is what it takes.

Our league climbed to 66 overall after last weeks matches.

There is a complete wrap back under Carls article earlier in the week as I wrote the Happy Wrap on Wednesday but it was quarantined subject to approval. It has since been approved but posted back where I first wrote the article.

I know what you are thinking why don't you just copy the wrap into here?
I tried that but it was quarantined again! go figure??

Good luck to all and Sundry except LEK. I would appreciate it if you could have an off week.

Thanks mate.

    neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 16:30

    some interesting contests jock v mo the big one and LEK will be tough for you too Trig

    Moustachio · 28/04/2017 at 16:42

    Will try to go easy on the old fella

      gator59 · 28/04/2017 at 18:56

      Great stuff Trigger

      neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 19:37

      Careful Mo he is full of tricks

Rivo · 28/04/2017 at 15:24

Trading out Roughy & Swallow for Treloar & Fisher.

Which is the better onfield this round…

Ballic or Parfitt at F6?
Newman or Hampton at D6?

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:39

    Like the trade. I personally am going with Balic and Newman

Newbie69 · 28/04/2017 at 15:26

Is it worth dropping Florent and picking up Fisher? Will generate cash for the week, but is this just wasting a trade?

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:39

    Florent has a possibility of being recalled as the swans like him – so I would wait one or two more weeks.

jake · 28/04/2017 at 15:39

worth trading out SPP for balic or do i hold (p.s. going for leagues)

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:38

    Not really

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:00

    If leagues, look for a spud like Eddy, Mountford etc without DPP and dump them. Get some extra cash down the road.

Tommo · 28/04/2017 at 15:43

Do I take a slight trade risk by going Petrevski-Seton -> Fisher AND Pickett -> Balic leaving me with 25 trades and a cool $311k in the bank?

OR

Just the one trade of Petrevski-Seton -> Fisher leaving me with $270k in the kitty.

Cheers for your help

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 15:55

    SPS definitely needs to go this week. Fisher v Balic has split the community down the guts this week, I prefer Balic myself.

    Trading Pickett is probably not worth it. Not much to made out of the trade and while he is fit he's a chance to come in next week.

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:38

    Like option 1 – just for me personally though

Jim · 28/04/2017 at 15:46

WHE and JOM to fisher and Nank (this week)

or

WHE and SPP to Fisher and Balic (this week) and Parfit/JOM up to dusty/bont (next week)

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 15:50

    I like the double downgrade this week to grab two superstars next week, Jim!

      Jim · 28/04/2017 at 16:15

      Thanks for the response Kev, but unfortunately, the second trade only gives me 357k, so while i'll be able to grab one superstar, won't be able to grab 2. Would you still double downgrade?

    Holty · 28/04/2017 at 16:27

    I like trade 1 but i agree with kev, Option 2 sounds fantastic

    Flubber · 28/04/2017 at 16:47

    Definitely the second option. Way too late to get Nank

      Daniel Z · 30/04/2017 at 13:07

      Not if he finishes top 6 forward or top 3 ruck.
      Priced at 483k and averaging 112 (priced around 90 average).

      He's no longer a bargain basement buy but if you think he'll keep it up for the season, he's cheaper than a fallen premo.

Henry · 28/04/2017 at 15:52

Thoughts on getting rid of WHE leaving 492k and getting jezza cameron??

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:37

    Jeremy Cameron is the Jarrod Waite of last year. He will slow down, and there are other forwards out there with much more consistency even as a KPP

      Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:02

      Good call as it turns out! I was sooo close to buying him…..but I let him slide, now his BE will soon be on the slide 🙂 Oh, lucky days.

Jim · 28/04/2017 at 15:52

SPP and Pickett to Fisher and Balic, bank $160, leaves cash to upgrade mid prices to Treloar/Danners and Sloane/ Selwood next week.
Please give me your thoughts

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:37

    Good op

Tommo09 · 28/04/2017 at 15:52

SPP, Pickett or Barrett out for Balic?
Already going Rough to Fisher

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:36

    Pickett is by far the worst and won't make you any cash even if he gets back in the side. Got to be him for mine.

    Flubber · 28/04/2017 at 16:46

    Trade out Non-playing rookies first.
    So trade out pickett for Balic

Nathaniel · 28/04/2017 at 15:57

Trade out Taranto OR SPP
Trade in fisher OR balic
Chose one
Thank you so much guys

    Flubber · 28/04/2017 at 16:46

    I'm going SPP –> Balic

John · 28/04/2017 at 16:04

Roughead to Balic, Swallow to Fisher, leaving me with $540k to work with in the coming weeks
OR
Roughead to Balic, Swallow up to any premium

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:35

    Option 2

matt · 28/04/2017 at 16:25

on field in the mids – Parfitt, SPP or Fisher? I'm thinking SPP at this stage…

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:35

    SPP

hedski · 28/04/2017 at 16:30

I'm contemplating going early on M'Bank for Tuohy, I also like Tony Abbott.
Is it possible I'm insane?

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 16:35

    yeah

    Liam · 28/04/2017 at 16:57

    Don't mind going early on Marchbank but not for Tuohy. Go one of Simmo and Shaw if you don't have them

      demon_spud · 28/04/2017 at 17:02

      this

    hedski · 28/04/2017 at 17:25

    OK OK, crap trade, I still like Abbott.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:46

    Insane

    neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 19:33

    take 2 panadol and wash it down with a bottle of whisky you will feel much better has Abbot got dpp could be handy cheers

    redherringfc · 28/04/2017 at 19:46

    tony abbott is a bit of a smokey, but i'm pretty sure he is going to be recalled pretty soon. My major concern is that he will kick a few massive home goals (wrong sport i know, but big T can do anything) and go back in price big time. If he gets recalled, i'll definitely trade zac dawson to the big T.

    hedski · 28/04/2017 at 20:39

    The more I think about it (the more beers I have), the more I'm liking this trade.
    Could be genius, big Tony may even knight me if it comes off…Sir Hedksi.

tom · 28/04/2017 at 16:34

Who to trade?
SPP, Taranto, Parfitt, Pickett, Barrett, Hannan or Eddy to Balic or Fisher or I can bring in two

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:29

    Any of the non playing/non moneymaking spuds Tom.

neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 16:34

Oliver to Pendles next week priced about the same Has Pendles still got it I think he has .

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:28

    Oliver averaging 115…I'd be tempted to hang onto that, I reckon he's a keeper, time will tell though.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:46

    I don't get it.

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:07

    You've got nothing else to fix in your team? Well done then! I get it. I like it. I just don't have Oliver, or such luxuries of upgrading staring mid pricers in the mids….looks at JOM.

Tim · 28/04/2017 at 16:37

It sure whether to trade out WHE, Swallow or Roughie? Any advice?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:31

    WHE and Swallows…first.

Cold_Case · 28/04/2017 at 16:37

Thinking of a double downgrade this week. Swallow WHE to Fisher Balic. Will then have 816k in the bank. Just wanna build a massive warchest. Paint the fence every week from now on. Fallen premos eveywhere. I reckon it will also give me an opportunity to get more rookies without losing too many points.

    demon_spud · 28/04/2017 at 17:02

    doing doube d also. though not as an impressive war chest.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:45

    Rookies worth snagging, do it.

Rhys · 28/04/2017 at 16:44

Swallow and WHE to Balic and JJK? Thoughts? Better options? JJK great bye round.

Shayne · 28/04/2017 at 16:45

Double down grade for me this week
Pick two out of Ball lick, Fisher and Hardwick

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:22

    Ball licker and Fishyballs lol

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:09

    I'm running Ball lick and Hard dick, giving fish'fing'er a miss

Flubber · 28/04/2017 at 16:45

WHE –> Balic
SPP –> Hannebury

ChasingFinals17 · 28/04/2017 at 16:50

what do you guys think about Mitch Duncans start to the season. Will he keep up the good start and be a good POD?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:21

    Good start to the year, but probably not a keeper, Target danger and Selwood if you don't already have em…gotta be bona fide keepers towards the end if you want to seriously contend.

    Cold_Case · 28/04/2017 at 18:12

    I had him last year. Frustrating. Menegola may take points off him also.

    Harry H · 28/04/2017 at 23:09

    Duncan is killing me. I had him last year waiting for the breakout and he was hopeless. Knowing my luck, he's probably going to kill it all year so you should probably jump on

SCathiest · 28/04/2017 at 16:50

Getting rid of Roughy this week, I'm extremely interested in the curious case of Tobias Greene?

Crow · 28/04/2017 at 16:52

Little bit stumped everyone which idea seems better
Fisher and Balic in for SPP and Pickett = 250k
Fisher and Balic in for SPP and Taranto = 340k
Fisher and a premium midfielder 600k max in for SPP and Steele

    demon_spud · 28/04/2017 at 17:01

    first if you have more than 24 trades left

      Crow · 28/04/2017 at 17:01

      27

SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 16:54

I have 6 non playing rookies this week, so is it best to make a second trade (leaves me with 25) and go
eddy/Pickett>Balic
Hibberd/Pickett>Fisher.
Would it be best to patch up a non playing rookie?
Thanks.

    Jkoel · 28/04/2017 at 17:59

    Praying Eddy is back into the side soon, so I'd trade out Pickett. Definitely a good idea to do so. Either Fisher or Balic are good options as will have a nice rise this week

Stinga · 28/04/2017 at 16:57

Trade out Swallow, instead of SPP, to fisher and Eddy to Balic, get the cash and upgrade SPP next week to a premium?

    Stinga · 28/04/2017 at 16:57

    Will still have 26 trades after those 2

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:18

    Yeah, Swallow before SPP…for sure, SPP could still come good, and is playing at least.

Deano · 28/04/2017 at 17:00

Should I start Balic or Parfitt?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:17

    Balic, Parfitt's average is….average.

Stav · 28/04/2017 at 17:01

Hey guys, just a quick one, Hampton, williamson or stewart on the field in D6?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:16

    Hampton or Williamson..flip a coin, before Stewart.

Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:03

Hey team, have 430k in the bank. Should I go

1. Swallow > Fisher and WHE > Buddy or
2. Swallow > Fisher and WHE > Balic

Don't want to miss out on two good rookies on the bubble, but it means I leave a shit load of cash in the bank that could be used on some serious point generation.

Thoughts?

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:10

    I'd say go buddy unless there's someone else you really want in the next week

      Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:15

      Cheers KSinny. Like their draw for the next month. Should play the swannies into form. Premo forwards seem a bit iffy other than Dahl/macrae, who I already have.

        KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:23

        Yeh that's true I have buddy and Dahl already and was wondering whether I should get in macrae Greene or ward tonight?

          Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:33

          Would have to say Macrae. More consistent. Greene just seems like he could drop off at any minute to me. Was very close to going Ward in preseason, but he just hasn't performed. Could be due though.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:15

    Buddy could very well be even cheaper next week…if you can wait, cash up and get the bubble rookies actually getting a game.

      Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:19

      Very tempted Russty. It's a lot of cash to have sitting there though. I'm not ranked super high, but have scored pretty well considering the cash I held. Potential to lose 80-100 points of scoring this week. It's a close call

    Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:57

    Decided on the double downgrade and hoping my on field rookies play well.

      Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:26

      Good luck Steve, and enjoy the big BANG BANG next week 🙂

John · 28/04/2017 at 17:04

VC Fyfe or JPK?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:14

    Fyfe with the Derby on, it's always a big game in the West.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:43

    Fyfe for sure.

Sully321 · 28/04/2017 at 17:05

trade marchbank/hampton to shaw
or parfiit to buddy?
i'm leaning to bringing in buddy as those two still a litlle bit of growth left in them yet

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:13

    Yeah out of those 2 Parfitt to Buddy, do you have any non playing rookies in the fwd line to dump instead of Parfitt?…Marchbank and Hampton ain't done making money yet.

Osei · 28/04/2017 at 17:06

Butler or Parfitt on the field this week?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:10

    Butler's more reliable.

    Steve · 28/04/2017 at 17:20

    Butler will struggle against Crows' small defenders

Izzy · 28/04/2017 at 17:06

JPK or Titch as vice captain this week???

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 17:11

    Titch, JPK's not in his best form right now.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:42

    All the sydney mids were down last week. JPK had 33 touches the week before vs West Coast.

    I'd go with JPK.

KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:15

Guys should I get Greene, macrae or Callan ward pls need help deciding

    Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 17:18

    out of the three, macrae. most consistent of the three.. price a little high for my liking however but he's worth it

    SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 17:26

    Macrae

Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 17:17

Hannas in for Smurph a good trade? seems like smurph will leak cash from here whilst hannas looks like he's going to turn his form around

    Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:27

    Read Lekdog's cheat sheet, trade if started with him

krups · 28/04/2017 at 17:21

Swallow to Hanners
WHE to Balic

    Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 17:35

    solid

Saundo · 28/04/2017 at 17:28

Help ! Balic, Fisher or Hardwick ? Can only get inr

    Saundo · 28/04/2017 at 17:28

    Only one sorry

      KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:31

      Balic as he will be playing more mid with Stephan hill out and has shown he can play in the WAFL

    Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:15

    Balic, Ross wants to play the kids

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:40

    Fisher then Balic. You can get two.

Stealth · 28/04/2017 at 17:28

Can only field 2 out off the 4 who should they be Marchbank. Otten, Stewart and Newman any ideas would be great.

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:31

    Otten and Newman

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:13

    I'm running Marchy and Otten of Stewart and Hampton.

Neverweaken · 28/04/2017 at 17:31

Is Fisher an absolute must have.

    Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 17:34

    no but good js and a good replacement for an under performing rookie/downgrade

KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:40

Thoughts on getting in either Heppel, Kelly (GWS), Sam Mitchell, brad crouch, cripps or Hanners

    Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 17:42

    Hannas for mine

    Saundo · 28/04/2017 at 17:45

    Hanners

    pod · 28/04/2017 at 17:52

    Cripps or Hanners

      Leeds17 · 28/04/2017 at 18:11

      what pod said

Joe T · 28/04/2017 at 17:41

How does everyone rate Stefan Martin's chance of finishing as a top 2 ruckman? Thinking of bringing him in for Roughy via Nankervis DPP

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 17:49

    High…. just like his price. Maybe hold off until he has a sub 90 game and he drops a touch in price

      Joe T · 28/04/2017 at 18:13

      It's either Martin or Macrae, one of them in this week. Their difference in price isn't too much so it's purely picking on who improves my team more.

RoyWetard · 28/04/2017 at 17:43

I can choose to make my VC one of Bont, Dahl, Titch, Beams, Doch or Steph but I want to make it Jack Steele, WTF??

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:45

    Bont

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:39

    Whatyasmokin?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:28

    I'm going Bont…go the Bont!

iLoveNMFC · 28/04/2017 at 17:46

I know this sounds crazy but I might possibly go Hampton to Balic and Roughy to Macrae, keeping WHE as a more reliable on field rookie than Balic or Hannan… I miss out on 40k from Hampton but gain a DPP player in the midfield and possibly more scoring potential up forward.

Someone talk me out of it… I never sacrifice rookies like this…

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 17:48

    Nup sorry mate Hampton will make you 40k more and WHE isn't even that much of a better option onfield than him. Strongly recommend you get rid of him and Roughy.

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 17:48

    Don't do it, it's bad for your health

    iLoveNMFC · 28/04/2017 at 17:51

    Fair enough, will probably downgrade Hampton soon anyway and that 40k might be vital

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:38

    Hampton might make more than 40K, who knows.

      iLoveNMFC · 30/04/2017 at 17:58

      I should've done the trade… WHE 130 and Hampton doing absolutely nothing. Ffs.

Powerage · 28/04/2017 at 17:50

Call me silly but thinking of holding roughy and WHE for another week ? Thoughts?

    Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:14

    I'm holding onto WHE, probably should look to get rid of Roughie though

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 18:16

    Just don't. Will lose cash and miss opportunities to get others later.

      Holty · 28/04/2017 at 21:27

      Agreed.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:47

    O.K, you're silly 🙂

    Harry H · 28/04/2017 at 23:12

    Call me silly, but I think everyone is writing Roughy off too quickly. 2 weeks ago he was great. After 2 poor weeks, he's suddenly SC irrelevant. I still see him as a keeper.

    WHE should go though sorry. Was only ever a bit player and with a high BE this week is too risky

Nifty · 28/04/2017 at 17:53

Hanners or Buddy?

Neverweaken · 28/04/2017 at 17:55

Swallow to Fisher
Swallow to Hannas
Swallow to McCrae
Swallow to Buddy

    Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 18:12

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:14

    2

    tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 18:44

    I am going Swallow to Hanners. The time has come for premo upgrades. Macrea not far behind though and would also be a solid choice. Hanners at his current price is an opportunity I cannot pass by. Dusty, Pendles, and Heath Shaw on my hitlist in coming weeks. Cheers

Steeeve · 28/04/2017 at 17:56

Having second thoughts about WHE to Balic. Only because my forward line will then be Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Parfitt, Butler, Balic (Hannan, Eddy). If one of Parfitt/Butler/Balic gets dropped I'm in donut town. I have $585K but am saving for Pendlebury.
Thinking I could go Hannan/Eddy for Buddy next week leaving me with about $285k. Then I can still go SPP to Pendles just, hopefully…

    Leeds17 · 28/04/2017 at 18:10

    seems like you need some forward upgrades.

      Steeeve · 28/04/2017 at 18:37

      Definitely. Buddy and Pendles can enter my team next week. Only 22 trades after this week though!

Alex · 28/04/2017 at 18:01

Hannaberry or Cripps?

    bigdaddy · 28/04/2017 at 18:09

    cripps

    Steeeve · 28/04/2017 at 21:19

    I want both but cripps will have to miss out

    SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 23:27

    hanners

bigdaddy · 28/04/2017 at 18:07

hanners or Titch??? have been stuck on this all day or use a bit more cash and pick up the likes of neale

    Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:20

    Hanners, top 5 mid for the past couple of years

Andy · 28/04/2017 at 18:11

Call me silly but thinking of holding roughy and WHE for another week ? Thoughts?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:33

    So getting no rookies this week? Silly.

    SCathiest · 28/04/2017 at 18:34

    Roughy B/E 105, WHE B/E 69
    One is achievable, one isn't. Maybe 50% silly?

      Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:20

      Yeah, u'r right, there is now way WHE is hitting 69 against the Cats!

Boltons Blues · 28/04/2017 at 18:13

It scares me having Butler, Parfit and Balic all in my FWD line this week.

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:33

    Would scare me too.

    Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 19:30

    All on the park? Not good.

Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:13

Nice work Kev! Hopefully a better week for me this week after Captain Pendles last week. Wielding the axe on Fox and Swallow for Balic and Fisher which leaves me $320k for maybe Dusty next week.

Tim · 28/04/2017 at 18:14

Parfitt -> Buddy or Marchbank -> Laird?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:33

    Neither

Kezj13 · 28/04/2017 at 18:16

What do people think Yay or Nay?

$342,000 ITB

Trade
SPP & WILL ELLIOT

For

Yay- Balic & Sloane
Or
Nay- Balic & Hardwick

    Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:20

    Balic and Hardwick, save yourself $130k by getting a Dusty/Pendles and co next week

      Kezj13 · 28/04/2017 at 18:29

      That will leave me at least 600+k in the bank for next week.

        Danners · 28/04/2017 at 18:32

        So you'll be able to do a double upgrade

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:34

    Prefer Fisher and Balic

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:22

    Nay! I'd love 600k next week!

Mike · 28/04/2017 at 18:18

Who should I trade out of SPP and Taranto??

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:34

    Taranto, but both can make their BE.

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 01:46

    Neither, wait another week.

Tom · 28/04/2017 at 18:23

Downgrade SPP or Parfitt this week?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:35

    Must have someone else to trade.

      Tom · 28/04/2017 at 18:42

      Trading WHE also

      Tom · 28/04/2017 at 18:50

      Building cash for a premo next week, bank is pretty low and I wanna start culling now because don't wanna get caught with rookies who are losing cash

undypuncher · 28/04/2017 at 18:23

Do i hold hannan or trade to balic ?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:36

    Hannan is playing and has a 13 BE. Must have somebody else to trade.

      undypuncher · 28/04/2017 at 19:15

      Not really either pepper or parfit or hoskin elliot

    whatyousmokin · 28/04/2017 at 19:29

    Trade WHE

    redherringfc · 28/04/2017 at 19:53

    hold. i don't think balic will be that good. (said the man who passed on Newman)

Sully321 · 28/04/2017 at 18:27

parker, mccrae or dahlhaus for vc?

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 18:30

    Dahl

      Sully321 · 28/04/2017 at 18:51

      forgot to mention buddy does he change your answer?

        pod · 28/04/2017 at 18:55

        Dahl & Macrae playing against good opposition and in freezing Canberra, could slow them down a bit. I'm warming to the Budstar kicking quite a few and running amock against the miserable Blues.

          KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 19:00

          Yeh I agree I was gonna go with buddy but I have the Bont so I gonna chuck the VC on him

Josh · 28/04/2017 at 18:30

Balic or Fisher and Cripps or Hannaberry and why?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:37

    Balic and Fisher. Because Hanners and Cripps are barely going to change in price.

Jason · 28/04/2017 at 18:32

Greene for roughy good trade ?

    trader · 28/04/2017 at 18:41

    No he's bound to get suspended and can't trust him

      Trader · 28/04/2017 at 18:42

      Get buddy or macrae

        Jason · 28/04/2017 at 18:48

        Got both of them

      Westy · 29/04/2017 at 13:36

      Psychic!

    KSinny · 28/04/2017 at 18:42

    Just spend a bit extra and get macrae or if u already have him walker has a good run

      Jason · 28/04/2017 at 18:48

      Got macrae already

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:53

    Don't mind it.

    Trader · 28/04/2017 at 18:55

    What about N Roo

      Jason · 28/04/2017 at 19:02

      Can't quite afford him

        Trader · 29/04/2017 at 08:14

        Told ya Greene would get suspended

          whatyasmokin · 29/04/2017 at 09:18

          I feel bad for suggesting him, there's more to picking a player than points that much is clear.

mich · 28/04/2017 at 18:34

Big vc on higgins this week, not sure if beers or genius. Had a weeks rest, no swallow or thomas and playing gold coast. And he owes me a big score from last week. Genius

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:53

    Could be.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:31

    Hope you have the C on Danger lol

    redherringfc · 28/04/2017 at 19:49

    Safe as houses, just put the C on him, sit back and relax.

    DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 19:49

    Should have gotten rid of him while you had the chance like I did

TheGreatBozza · 28/04/2017 at 18:42

Pick 2 to trade out for Balic & Fisher

Smith (via DPP), JOM, Eddy & Roughy

I'm thinking Smith and Eddy purely because they are both out, however Roughy and JOM have been trash

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:53

    Smith and Eddy will generate no cash, so no upgrades next or following week.

      TheGreatBozza · 28/04/2017 at 18:57

      That's true. I forgot to mention I have no cash in the bank. Is it worth offloading Roughy to prevent cash loss and building bank? My thoughts are to offload Smith too and hope eddy can get another game

John · 28/04/2017 at 18:47

Can trade in any premo besides Sloane but deciding between Zorko, Neale, Tom Mitchell, Wines. Waiting on the Bont because he's gonna drop in price. And btw I already have Beams and Fyfe trying not to double up on same teams

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:52

    Zorko good POD. The only reason not to double up from same teams is if it hurts bye structure.

Kezj13 · 28/04/2017 at 18:47

This is my team at the moment

Adams Docherty Otten Shaw Hampton Newman (Vickers, Guthrie)

Danger Fyfe Heppell Treloar Beams Hanners Fisher Balic (Parfit, Hibbard, Atley)

Sandy Goldy (Strnadica)

Dahlhaus Nankervis Macrae Steele Butler Hardwick
(Pickett, Eddy)

What are your thoughts? What should I be looking at doing down the track?

tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 18:49

VC on Tom Mitchell or Daniel Hannebery this week?

    redgumwon · 28/04/2017 at 19:04

    neither

      tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 19:13

      Who do you reckon then?

    Keenbutclueless · 28/04/2017 at 19:11

    I am biased because I have the VC on Titch also

    krups · 28/04/2017 at 19:13

    Fyfe

    pod · 28/04/2017 at 19:15

    Titch

    whatyousmokin · 28/04/2017 at 19:28

    Fyfe, Rocky, S Martin, dahl

      tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 19:37

      Also looking at Dahlhaus. If he goes big I have the perfect captain loophole foil for him. Brett Eddy. I can then use others for E loopholes on other lines. Bloke in ripping form and tonight's game is likely to be free flowing and very fast. Might just suit him down to a tee.

Trader · 28/04/2017 at 18:53

Not sure who I should play on field newman or Hampton? Little help please?

Cheers

    tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 18:54

    I would go Hampton. Adelaide home game this week, but it is always a lottery week in week out with these rooks.

    krups · 28/04/2017 at 18:55

    Can you loop hole newman into hampton?

      Trader · 28/04/2017 at 18:57

      No….only line I don't have a loop

        krups · 28/04/2017 at 19:01

        Hampton

        neil Demons Delight · 28/04/2017 at 19:18

        that's where hibberd comes into it and pickett for that matter

krups · 28/04/2017 at 18:54

Bont, JPK, Hanners or Buddy as VC

    Rick Grimes · 28/04/2017 at 19:23

    I've got it on Franklin. But the Bont is due another massive. I'm torn.

whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 18:56

Would trade Pickett instead of SPP

Rick Grimes · 28/04/2017 at 19:13

Who would you move on, Roughy or WHE? The Rough won't make his BE, but Hawthorn has some winnable games coming up. WHE might squeeze a little more cash but has a low ceiling I feel. Hmmm

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 01:40

    I had the same ? finally traded Roughy out,WHE will be going next week.

Jacob · 28/04/2017 at 19:21

What does everyone think of Tex as an upgrade option? Owned by only 2 % and seems to be getting plenty of the ball up the ground, not just relying on goals.
Thinking Roughy > Tex and SPP > Fisher.
Thoughts community?

    whatyousmokin · 28/04/2017 at 19:25

    Outside the box don't mind it.

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:44

    Rance will sort him out this week

      whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:53

      You're probably right.

        Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:04

        Tex, may be a bit too Jeremy Cameron…like.

          whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 23:12

          Yep wouldn't make it into my team, not a bad thought though. Him and Cameron will have big games no doubt.

Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 19:28

Which 2 to start on the park; Marchbank, Newman, Otten and Hampton? All defenders picked so no loopholes.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:34

    Tough one Pablo, this question's already been asked 100 times this week, for me, Otten and Newman, go with your gut feeling though and live with the results. Any of them could do better than the other 3.

      Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 19:44

      I have changed my mind at least 4 time, and that is just today. Just cant trust Hampton to go big 2 weeks in a row and is Jenkins going to stuff up Ottens run? Is the weather in Adelaide going to play a part?

        Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:50

        Otten will be fine with Jenkins in there, and Newman's averaging 80…hence, my picks.

Matt · 28/04/2017 at 19:35

Have as rookies:
Def – Marchbank, Otten, Hampton, Newman, Stewart
Mid – SPP, Parfitt, Barrett, Pickett, Bowes
Ruc – Strnadica
Fwd – WHE, Butler, Houston, Eddy

Have 28 trades and only 5k in the bank. I already am going WHE -> Balic for my first trade. For my second trade do I go either:
1. Pickett -> Fisher
2. Parfitt -> Fisher

1 gets rid of the spud Pickett, but 2 gives me more cash for next week to trade up with the likes of Butler/Marchbank/SPP. Thoughts?

Josh · 28/04/2017 at 19:39

Who should I trade out for Balic/Fisher out of Butler, Parfitt, Pickett, SPP?

Finnius123 · 28/04/2017 at 19:41

You are stupid

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:52

    Why are you impersonating someone else with an Intense Debate profile? It's pretty easy to tell the difference.

DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 19:45

Screw Shaw is my VC

    DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 19:45

    Screw it*

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 19:54

    I hope he defies his recent crappy scores and goes big for ya!

Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 19:46

Balic and Fisher will have sailed after this week. They are not worth getting in IF you do not do it this week. Getting them in after this week is STUPID.

tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 19:47

Start playing the game mate!!

If you are scared to take a risk, then this is not the game for you. If you do not do something and fast, you will miss the train. Balic, Fisher are on the bubble this week mate. You need to generate cash to win this thing. You have JOM who is stuffed, Pickett who will not be back for a very long time, and Eddy who is just sitting there like a stunned mullet in your forward line.

Hope it helps. Cheers

Jon · 28/04/2017 at 19:51

Beams or Rocky VC?
Beams has a good record against the power.
Thoughts?

    Kev · 28/04/2017 at 20:42

    Like Rocky over Beams, Jon

Regan · 28/04/2017 at 19:58

From here on out who will be the top 8 mids and who's a better option Baltic or Fisher

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 20:30

    I'll tell you in 17 rounds, and I reckon fisher.

    Boltons Blues · 28/04/2017 at 20:48

    Danger, Selwood, Pendles, Fyfe, Treloar, Titch, Sloane
    then there is a list for spot 8, i reckon those will be the top 7, even more so if Treloar and Titch clean up the efficiency

      Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:42

      Add JPK and Hanners

        Big Kev · 28/04/2017 at 22:47

        You may want to squeeze the Bont in there friend. Another hefty ton from the Bont tonight.

    TBone · 28/04/2017 at 21:33

    I got bought to be able to upgrade SPP to a fallen premo next week or one after.

    Also I reckon Danger, Pendles, Selwood, Fyfe, Bont, Martin, Treloar, JPK. but Wines, Rocky, Titch are great options too!

Neverweaken · 28/04/2017 at 20:28

Should have gone Swallow McCrae

Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 20:30

Where's the Round 6 Fatchew…feel like chewin some fat! 🙂

    hedski · 28/04/2017 at 20:44

    Cook some bacon Russ

      Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 20:50

      Had bacon and eggs for brekky mate, don't want overdo it, gotta watch the figure lol

        hedski · 28/04/2017 at 21:23

        Mmm Bacon and eggs

          Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:31

          Haha, fat free Bacon, but burnt almost to a bloody crisp! lol

Boltons Blues · 28/04/2017 at 20:51

Finally moved Witts off my bench and into my R2.
traded WHE to Balic and Parfitt to Strnadica via NANK swing, but still keeping my DPP open if injury/poor form happens with SandiWitts.
458k in the chest to upgrade SPP to Pendles either next week or the following, then a backline upgrade to Shaw, who is showing good form tonight, hopefully he doesnt make the B/E so he is even cheaper!

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:02

    Nice insurance trades Blues, Strengthens your rucks and your fwds, that can't be a bad thing..and big bucks in the bank to boot.
    I have Sandi R1, Witts R2 and Nank in fwds with Preuss on the pine, can't rotate them but Nank can stay fwd all year for me, and if Preuss doesn't play again, I can use him to make some cash when I want to downgrade or upgrade on another line.

    I reckon it was definitely worth taking the risk this year with cheap ruckmen, Sandi, Witts, Nank, Preuss.

Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 20:54

Bloody Jeremy Cameron's making a good case for himself to be traded in….is this the year he becomes a bona fide premo consistent scorer?

    Holty · 28/04/2017 at 21:15

    I feel sorry for all the people asking our advice about trading in Cameron and the community keep talking them out of it. But agree rusty, i keep waiting for him to have a shocker but he just keeps going. This could be his year

      Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:23

      Yeah and I've been one of those nay-sayers Holty..might have to change my tune about that fella soon, he might've finally come of age.
      I just remember all the years he failed to deliver though…but the worm might've turned.

        Holty · 28/04/2017 at 21:33

        Maybe but i dont have him either and have agreed with the communities thoughts. Has always been a big let down in the past

      whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:34

      Check out end game scores, nothing special tonight.

        Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:40

        Was 60 at half time. Finished with 56. That is why you don't have him. Now let's not talk about him again.

          Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 22:41

          Yeh you're right Derek, he sucks! haha

          whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 23:00

          Exactly.

    Top Gun · 28/04/2017 at 22:55

    Too inconsistent for me.

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:28

    Half time had me worried that I failed in not going Rough to Cameron. Full time not so much….happy days.

    Moustachio · 29/04/2017 at 08:08

    Guess not :S

Mike · 28/04/2017 at 21:06

Don't want to jinx, but loving Macrae being a POD at 21%

    tophawk · 28/04/2017 at 21:10

    Looking very sharp mate. Have Mac C in my second yet "inferior" Fantasy team.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:10

    Not really a pod being owned by 41000, I reckon he was a lock from go time… a no brainer, at that price.

    Don't Blush Baby · 28/04/2017 at 21:11

    Mike, by Round 12 everyone will have him

    Joker · 28/04/2017 at 21:13

    LMAO bud. Hardly a POD when over 80,000 coaches own him.

      Joker · 28/04/2017 at 21:15

      *Typo 40,000

      Mike · 28/04/2017 at 21:33

      Would have expected him to have Dahlhaus like ownership though

        Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:45

        Yeah Mike, me too, I think a lot of guys decided Dahlhaus was a lock at the start of the season, and then maybe thought having Macrae in the fwd line too was too many dogs, plus he averaged 94 last season from 18 games so he missed some games through injury.
        I'm happy to have locked him and Dahlhaus in…less headaches trying to get a decent fwd line sorted…plus they have the confidence of a flag under their belts helps.

    Holty · 28/04/2017 at 21:21

    I wouldnt say he is a POD Mike. He is one of the most owned forward premiums at 21%. But those that dont have him will now have to wait a long time unless they want to pay a premium

      Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:29

      He's actually only gone up by 20 grand Holty, unbelievable really for how consistent he's been, so he's still quite affordable at his price.

    Lachy · 28/04/2017 at 23:41

    Literally the exact opposite of a POD lmfao..

Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:16

Come on Bonty boy!, have a big second half please…140 would be much appreciated.

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:30

    Can you also pray for my SC team please!?

DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 21:43

TARANTO dominating

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:51

    Typical that he'd do well when alot traded him out haha

      DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 21:55

      I luckily have the emergency on him so I will be taking his score

        Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:56

        Good one, I lost patience with him a few weeks ago…hopefully, he gets you over the line.

      Joshua · 28/04/2017 at 21:55

      Was thinking about it, lucky I traded Parfitt instead

        Marko · 28/04/2017 at 22:40

        All mathematics. If you traded him out for someone who will make more cash and get similar points you have a win. Taranto has been up and down. Tonight has been an exception.

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:37

    90 before scaling. Ended up with 86. I'll take that.

Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 21:48

Good one Greene…dumbarse punched him in the face..reported!.glad I don't have that hothead.

    hedski · 28/04/2017 at 21:56

    Little Spitta just can't help himself.

      Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 22:01

      He ain't gonna win anyone a league final sitting in the sin-bin.

Liam · 28/04/2017 at 21:52

Bont looking like a must have with his inflated scores due to CD having him as perma captain.

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:36

    He is very SC friendly 😉

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 22:53

    Eddy Captain this week, nice work Bonty!

NickMacMan · 28/04/2017 at 21:55

Trading in Balic for a,b or c?
a. O'meara
b. Pickett
c. WHE

Cheers boys

    NickMacMan · 28/04/2017 at 22:18

    (Already traded Fisher in for Eddy)

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:59

    WHE to make some cash, considering he is throwing out 50's the last two weeks what's the difference between playing a rookie?

NorthMelb · 28/04/2017 at 22:03

Out of Balic, Skinton and Parfit who would be best to field

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 22:06

    Definitely Skinton.

Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 22:08

Bloody Dahlhaus, do something!…in the next 14 minutes you little bastard! lol

DavidSA · 28/04/2017 at 22:24

stuff you JJ
61 half time how the feck you only score 4 in last two qtrs

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:35

    Cameron was 60 at half time. Ended up with 56

Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 22:26

Johanisen has gained 6 sc points in 2 quaters -.-

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:09

    I think it's because of his stupid hair, it's stupid hairstyle karma.

Liam · 28/04/2017 at 22:33

To all those tools who traded out Shaw the past few weeks – congratulations! That's why you don't trade out your premos.

    Derek · 28/04/2017 at 22:34

    No one would have done that!

      DavidSA · 28/04/2017 at 22:37

      Agree with Derek
      Hardly anyone here in this inner sanctum would have traded him out.
      Misdirected a little me thinks

        Moustachio · 29/04/2017 at 08:06

        Pretty sure Derek was being sarcastic =p

        I brought Heater in as my first upgrade this rd. Welcome my gym mr Shaw.

Baz · 28/04/2017 at 22:33

Selwood, wines, Zorko or save a little dollars and go with Oliver

    DavidSA · 28/04/2017 at 22:44

    Ward next week

      whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:56

      His basic stats have been there but SC wise not really. Tough call on Ward.

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:33

    Jelwood

DefyingMadness · 28/04/2017 at 22:41

Shaw didn't get high enough for my liking so now who do I chuck the C on, Danger?

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:51

    Either Danger or Fyfe I reckon.

DavidSA · 28/04/2017 at 22:48

D.Shiel is the new yoyo man
75,132,86,111,75,103

Jack · 28/04/2017 at 22:50

Had an intense mental battle earlier today deciding whether to upgrade WHE to Buddy or Greene. Glad I went Buddy. Greene looks gone for a couple.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:08

    In the long run, Buddy's a classier player anyway Jack.

      Jack · 29/04/2017 at 20:35

      Agreed.

Chris_Judd · 28/04/2017 at 22:52

Had the VC on Heath Shaw tonight. Tossing up between who should be captain. Titch, Danger, Fyfe, JPK or Treloar?

    Ja191 · 28/04/2017 at 22:54

    Fyfe myself feeling a big one from him

    whatyasmokin · 28/04/2017 at 22:54

    Fyfe or Danger.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:07

    Fyfe with the derby, It's a big deal over here in hickland.

Sel · 28/04/2017 at 23:02

VC on Bont, take Tarantos score eddy goes on but do I take butler, Houston or WHE off for him, leaning towards Butler, reckon crows'll give em a touch up

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:14

    Yeah, agree, the ball might not be in the Tiger's fwd line enough for Butler to score anything decent.

    John James · 28/04/2017 at 23:24

    Well done with the VC on Bont, I had it on him from last week,then at the last minute changed to Fyfe. Also had the E on Taranto with Eddy on the pine,Parfitt will be going out for me,either Butler or WHE would be the go for you.

Holty · 28/04/2017 at 23:05

Wow im not sure i agree with how they work out the scaling at the end of the match. I know Bonts is a gun but how do players in the losing team get scaled up and Shaw and others in the winning team get scales down?

    Randomcliche2 · 29/04/2017 at 01:36

    It's called Bont's Balloon and gets applied after each match. Para 1 in the clear guide to SC scoring guide by CD.

Adrian · 28/04/2017 at 23:24

Hey Community

So these are my thoughts

WHE to Balic (like everyone else)
Swallow to Fisher like everbody else lol)

Then next week l am downgrading Yeo to Parsons or Black

After this l will have $900k and 24 trades left…

Then planning to bring in Hanners, Dependleberry, Shaw…think l will then let my midfield just settle, and look to maybe bring in Sloane, Selwood, Martin back half of the year….just simply can't afford them. Down to 21 trades then but my midfield will be sorted.

Does this sound like a good plan, l can then concentrate on upgrading Otten, Hampton, Stuart in the backline, to maybe a simpson.

What are your thoughts folks, am l on the right track, or is this foolish 🙂

    Adrian · 28/04/2017 at 23:31

    i know shaw is a defender screwed up there. doh

    John James · 28/04/2017 at 23:59

    Those trades look fine,but who do you have in your mids,if you are looking at all those players to bring in,or are you just working out which two to bring in,since most teams would already have six locked and loaded.

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 00:11

    Continuing on from where I left off Adrian ,my top six mids are Danger, Bont, Oliver, Fyfe, Treloar and Beams,I'm looking at keeping all six and the other two will probably end up being Wines and T.Mitchell,but I'm not in a hurry,happy to have the rookies in the last two spots for now.

      Asrian · 29/04/2017 at 22:50

      I've got danger dahlhause fyfe treloar Mitchell spp and fisher on field. I think peddles and Sellwood and Shaw as my upgrade targets.

SF4 · 28/04/2017 at 23:40

Still wondering whether to pull the trigger on Pickett>Balic.
Other trade is Swallow>Hanners. Ill be left with 25 if I make 2 this week.
How should I go about this?

    Pman · 28/04/2017 at 23:41

    Solid trade and 25 trades after this Rd isn't too bad either.

    Moustachio · 29/04/2017 at 07:59

    Push 'confirm'

Pman · 28/04/2017 at 23:40

Had Taranto as Emergency so can take his 87 if I put Eddy field but due to trades I'm making I'll now have to play either Balic or Parfitt on field. Who do the Community think will score better out of the two? Parfitt has been solid but reckon Balic will get plenty of time on ball now that Hill is out? Thoughts?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:46

    See below

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 00:26

    Hi Pman,I did the same with Taranto as E ,so I've put Eddy on the field and taken Parfitt off the field on to the pine instead of Balic because when you take Parfitt's score against the Dees out, he really hasn't done that much.So yes I would go with your thinking and have Balic on the field.

Pablo · 28/04/2017 at 23:41

Me too. I will take that thank you very much.

Spanner · 28/04/2017 at 23:43

Balic or Butler off to get Taranto's score?

    Russty_ · 28/04/2017 at 23:45

    Butler, might get destroyed by Adelaide. Balic could do well in the Western Derby.

      Pman · 29/04/2017 at 00:13

      Good point re Balic in the Derby so I will start with him which means Parfitt or Butler to bench? I agree Crows wills probably win and Geelong should beat Pies so tough pick out of these two to start with?

Ken · 29/04/2017 at 00:28

Toby Greene..good footballer, bad behaviour

Gets into a nightclub brawl
Last year spits on Anthony miles
Two jlt incidents
Last week head butting
This week punching

Surely if he only gets one week, it's a joke

    Kyle · 29/04/2017 at 01:35

    If i rememver correctly the spit incident was just one bad camera angle. He was no where near spitting on or at miles. It just looked bad on live tv and was later looked at again and completely innocent.

    He definately does needs to work on his attitude tho and i am very glad i didnt bring him in this week. Was either him ir franklin and im glad i made the right decision there.

      Kim · 29/04/2017 at 11:58

      He is an absolute tosser who I won't be bringing in EVER. Hate the little prick. Hope he gets at least 2 weeks.

    Pablo · 29/04/2017 at 07:32

    So how many will he get Ken. 3 down to 2 with the plea?

      Ken · 29/04/2017 at 10:23

      Yeh I reckon…surely can't be a 1 weeker

        KSinny · 29/04/2017 at 10:28

        At least he's not as bad as Big Bad Barry Hall

Keenbutclueless · 29/04/2017 at 02:16

At the start of the season I was looking at Gunston versus Greene at F3. While Greene might be a better footballer and may outscore Gunston, I couldn't bring myself to be hoping week after week that the flog of a bloke would do well. This episode absolutely locks it in. It would feel like I had been run over by the karma bus.

    Moustachio · 29/04/2017 at 07:57

    What happened?

      The Ranger · 29/04/2017 at 08:06

      Reported for striking. Will probably miss a couple.

    Don drumpf · 29/04/2017 at 07:59

    Spot on mate. Hes a flowering flog!

Toby the Toad · 29/04/2017 at 06:00

VC'd Bont should I take it or does Danger go higher??

    Alfie · 29/04/2017 at 06:20

    Take it.

    Pablo · 29/04/2017 at 06:54

    Take the points and run. 282 in the hand is a great result. Sure Danger might go bigger but then again, he might not.

    Don Drumpf · 29/04/2017 at 08:00

    Did u actually ask that question?!

Alfie · 29/04/2017 at 06:11

Parfitt or SPP on the ground I have to take 1 of them off to loop hole Tarantos score who do you think ?

Jess · 29/04/2017 at 06:28

Gonna take Taranto score and swing Adams back to defence.
Which defenders (pick 3 would you play)

Newman, often, Hampton, marchbank.

Play 3 get rid of 1.

I'm thinking often with Jenkins coming back,
Last time the 2 were in the same team he only scored 40 odd points

    jess · 29/04/2017 at 07:27

    otten*

    Ja191 · 29/04/2017 at 08:25

    otten, out of the other 3 it's pretty even but newman marchbank for me

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 11:59

    I have the same problem Jess,most of us probably do since those 4 are very popular,I put Hampton as E and the other 3 on the field,but not with a lot of confidence,I only went with Hampton as E since he has the lowest average.

Moustachio · 29/04/2017 at 08:00

Probably the best in the AFL at offering blowies to the CD staff

Iamme · 29/04/2017 at 08:12

I'm putting the emergency on Newman if he goes big, then I'll put a non playing player on field and move Hampton to the pine to get Newmans score.

Stupid Coach · 29/04/2017 at 08:21

Nice work Kev. Would like to paint the fence this week but don't have enough cash to do so. 26 trades and $188k. I can either go Pickett to Fisher and Eddy to Balic or conserve a trade and just go Eddy to Balic as I have coverage on the.bench in the middle and try to paint the fence next week.

Thoughts???

    tophawk · 29/04/2017 at 09:08

    If you only traded Eddy to Balic this week it would only generate you another $18K towards your warchest. I reckon $206k is still not enough coin to execute your paint the fence move next week. Pickett to Fisher would pocket you another $47K. Then your warchest might be large enough at $253K to swoop on a fallen premo next week. Eg Marchbank to Heath Shaw next week perhaps? Cheers

      whatyasmokin · 29/04/2017 at 09:21

      Agreed, and Pickett probably just as likely as Eddy to get a recall, Eddy also has a nice negative BE.

        Stupid Coach · 29/04/2017 at 12:26

        Thanks tophawk and whatyasmokin. Appreciate the advice​. Already have Heater and generally happy with my defence. Was hoping to upgrade in the middle or fwd line next week. Only considered Eddy because I have no coverage on bench. However, agree that Fisher is the better option over Balic.

greg · 29/04/2017 at 08:53

do people think otten will score well again this week with jenkins back? he scored 45 last time the 2 were in the same team..

    whatyasmokin · 29/04/2017 at 09:20

    Was round one though and he hadn't played in a while. Still see him getting 80-odd.

    Iamme · 29/04/2017 at 10:01

    Even if he starts to tank now …he done a great job.

Tommo09 · 29/04/2017 at 08:59

Same it's a good score
Good start to the week, hopefully it continues (touch wood)

tophawk · 29/04/2017 at 10:02

Hi community!

Another Saturday morning has rolled around and its D Day for many coaches on the trading front. I am sitting here staring at my team looking at D Swallow and Pickett. They are the two current liabilities in my team. Both pric-ks are going TODAY.

One trade is pretty straight forward. I don't have Balic. Pickett to Balic. Easy. No dramas there.

It is the second trade which kept me awake last night. David Swallow. I already have a juicy $330K in my warchest. All week I have been spouting Swallow OUT and Hannebery IN. But when I got up this morning, something in my gut was bugging me. That question was and still is-

Do I really really need Hannebery this week? Do I have to grab him right now? With my earlier emotions aside, the answer is probably NO. He still has a BE of 109. He is slightly better than even money to hit that. As such, his price range next week would sit somewhere in the range of $530 and $560K. Even if he goes 150+ today, he will only be $15 to $20K more expensive then he is today. BUT HE IS STILL CHEAP. Potentially paying the slight extra for him might be worth it as I now know that I have rock solid clarity that this SC beast is back in form. It will also give me another week to look at the likes of Patrick Cripps, Dustin Martin, Luke Parker, Scott Pendlebury, etc. A week is a long time in football as we all know. Perhaps some of these blokes will go big this round and could change the whole premo midfield upgrade scenario.

Based on the above, I am seriously considering trading David Swallow down to Zac Fisher today. Rookie cash generation remains a key priority especially after missing Tom Williamson last week. This move would generate another $216K and swell my coffers to $550K for next week's double premo upgrades. Likely Marchbank to Shaw and potentially Sam Powell Pepper for that fallen midfield ultra premo. Shaw will bottom out in price at around $483K and he is a must get next week. (Michael Hibberd has to do something BIG and I mean REALLY BIG this week to overtake Shaw for that upgrade)

Feel free to critique my analysis as I still have a few hours to think and ponder before pulling the trade levers.

Cheers

    TheGreatBozza · 29/04/2017 at 11:17

    Go for the double downgrade. Sure it's a lot of cash to be holding but it allows you to upgrade in the coming weeks, and reassess the likes of Pendles, Dusty etc.

    However I will mention do you have any intention to pick up one of Black or EVW? I know it's hard to predict if rookies will get a game, but you need to look ahead. If your happy with balic/Fisher over a EVW or Black then your fine to double down this week

    PDAP · 29/04/2017 at 11:24

    Do the Balic trade only. Wait a week and I am sure you will find there are other/better players than Hanners.
    In the main league you are playing in you must get a top ten mid and certainly at this stage their are better I'd players than Hanners even if he pumps out 100+ against an ordinary Carlton today.
    Also, perhaps look to strengthen your other lines.

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 11:48

    Well thought out tophawk,I would double down,with Balic and Fisher,that's what I did,that will give you cash in the bank and cash generation,plus more time to think about which premos to get in.

    Stupid Coach · 29/04/2017 at 12:34

    Comprehensive analysis tophawk. If you have the trades I would do the double downgrade and bring in Fisher and Balic and assess the premium options next week. I personally am only doing the one trade – Pickett to Fisher.

    Derek · 29/04/2017 at 12:44

    Hey TH, I posted yesterday that the Fallen Premiums in my watchlist, plus guys like Hanners, TMitch, Trloar (already have) none of their BE was under 100. Simmo and JJK was about 102. I was saying the same thing, wait wait wait for them to fall, every dollar is vital this year.

    I am going Eddy to Baltic and Pickett to Fisheer this week.

    I missed Otten and still hurting me

gator59 · 29/04/2017 at 10:15

Got the VC on The Bont.. The question is if i put Strdick with the BIG C on him on field then put Big Sandi to bench with the E on him will
this still work for the loop hole seeing they are from the same side.. Just trying to re assure myself that this will work

Will this work YES or NO community … cheers

    Adam · 29/04/2017 at 10:21

    YES that will work gator.

    Pman · 29/04/2017 at 11:06

    Good as gold Gator…

      gator59 · 29/04/2017 at 12:11

      cheers guys

Cliffy · 29/04/2017 at 10:16

Undecided about whether to go double downgrade (Fisher and Balic) or paint the fence this week (Balic/Fisher and Buddy).

Here's my squad so far:

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Newman (Hampton, Stewart)
MID: Dangerfield, JPK, Fyfe, TMitchell, Beams, Treloar, Parfitt, SPP (Pickett, Barrett, Hibberd)
RUCK: Martin, Sandilands (Strandica)
FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Nank, Yeo, WHE, Houston (Butler, Eddy)

Based on this team outlook, what appears the better option guys? All opinions welcome 🙂

Trev · 29/04/2017 at 11:09

Downgrade WHE to Balic or Fisher or upgrade WHE to a Franklin/Kennedy FWD, 1 up, 1 down

or

Do the double downgrade, get in Balic and Fisher for Picket and WHE. 2 down

TheGreatBozza · 29/04/2017 at 11:21

I've got Taranto as my FWD E this week, I was considering trading Eddy to balic but then I can't take his score since I have no other FWD loopholes.

This has lead me to Roughy > Balic & Smith > Fisher. It'll leave me with 27 trades but I'm considering them corrective trades. I gave Roughy time but he hasn't come good…now watch him slaughter the saints for 100+ since I'm trading him

*Side note is I still have JOM. Could drop him instead of Roughy but JOM has a smaller b/e I believe

    Ja191 · 29/04/2017 at 12:25

    I'm holding JOM. If he plays consistently (the big if), I can see him averaging 90+

Big G · 29/04/2017 at 11:22

The Bont scores another 140 after 22 possessions and 5-10 minutes of good play at best. IT CANT BE. IT CANT BE. IT CANT BE

    chef · 29/04/2017 at 11:36

    22 disposals at 82% efficiency, 16 of them contested and 16 of them in the forward half, 10 score involvements, 3.0, 2 marks & 7 tackles. The 141 was well deserved.

    KSinny · 29/04/2017 at 11:36

    It is

    Kim · 29/04/2017 at 12:13

    Did you actually watch the game big g? He took contested marks, kicked 3 goals had plenty of contested possessions and actually hit targets. Don't know why everyone keeps sooking about him scoring well, he impacts games and if you watched the games you would see that also. There is no conspiracy he just does things that score highly in SuperCoach scoring, period.

    Well said chef by the way.

      Big G · 29/04/2017 at 12:49

      Watched the game very closely (although television is always hard to judge). He had 15 minutes of good play and probably deserved 110 best. There was a small group of other players (Zac Williams, GWS) that had greater impact on the game and AFL dreamteam scoring or whatever they call it these days gave a good reflection of the game. There is no way someone like Selwood with 43 touches who wins the game off his own back gets 154 and someone in a losing side with 22 gets a similar score.

        Big G · 29/04/2017 at 12:51

        Even Bont owners agree with me btw.

Panarama · 29/04/2017 at 11:33

The weather maybe dampish at the MCG this afternoon but will it impact on Buddy's scoring against an ordinary Carlton, not that Swans are too flash either.
At this stage I have the VC on Fyfe – confident, and the C on Danger, not so confident.
Should I take the risk with the VC on Buddy to score 130+

Mongoose · 29/04/2017 at 11:40

Yes, I heard BT exclaim 'It can't be' etc and I agree with him, however he is an irritating commentator.
He nearly always asks the other panellists their opinion about an issue before giving his own, and, probably through his lack of nous, he often does not name a player during a passage of play and his reoccurring sin 'And Cameron strolls in to kick his fifth goal, oh, he pulled his kick to the left'.
What does this have to do with SC, nothing, but now I feel better. He, he.

SOC · 29/04/2017 at 11:48

Would any one trade in Sloane now at top dollar for Adams who now has a 135 BE? Expensive but have the cash.

    Ja191 · 29/04/2017 at 12:21

    Adams has gone 110+ all but one, why would you trade him out.. no no + Sloane is too expensive for my liking right now.

      Derek · 29/04/2017 at 12:49

      I didn't like how Adams spent slot of time forward last week and Wells was in the guts. Didn't like it at all. Was looking at Trading Adams from my draft team.

      Sloane too expensive and will be affected by Brad Criuch and Scott Thompson

Taranto was ok and I will take his 86 points with glee, however he is not as good a player at this stage as some forum members are gushing about. Probably they are over excited because they didn't follow the pack mentality and kept him. However don't hold your breath because their is some talent to come back into the GWS team. I hope but doubt he can last until the byes.

    The 86 will make good cash, that's all I care about

Which two onfield out of Parfitt, Balic, SPP and Fisher?

    hedski · 29/04/2017 at 13:10

    I'm going with Balic and SPP, looping Fisher, probably yank SPP if Fisher scores well.
    Back at ya, Parfitt or Butler on field fwd?

DavidSA · 29/04/2017 at 14:18

Hope no one held JOM he set to lose a truck load of cash

After trading out WHE and Pickett for Fisher and Balic:
Here's my squad now:
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Otten, Newman, Hampton (Stewart, Hibberd)
MID: Dangerfield, Pendlebury, JPK, Fyfe, T Mitchell, Beams, SPP, Balic (Parfitt, Barrett, Fisher)
RUC: Grundy, Sandilands (Cameron)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Macrae, T Lynch, Nankervis, Butler, Houston (Eddy, Alison)

Ready to upgrade SPP next week with 329k in the bank and got 25 trades left.

Looking to next week Lewis Melican Def 123,900 from syd might be a good downgrade for Marchbank.

DavidSA · 29/04/2017 at 15:39

Roberton n.o1 defender?

    Pman · 29/04/2017 at 17:42

    On current form he is.

Pman · 29/04/2017 at 17:41

Who starts on the ground out of Balic who could go large or be over awed in the Derby or Butler who may get carved up the rampaging Crows? Leaning towards rolling dice on Balic thinking he may get more on ball time with Hill out and Richmonds forward line might not see much of it. Also a bit stumped on Hampton or Otten on ground tomorrow now that Josh Jenkins is back in may hurt Otten's score? Any feedback appreciated..

    John James · 29/04/2017 at 18:45

    Tough one Pman,if it means anything I would have Balic over Butler and I have Otten on the ground with Hampton as E,but not with a lot of confidence.Wishing that I kept Hampton on the ground and Newman as E but I swapped them around after listening to what other people thought,so I guess in the end you just do what YOU think is best.

      Pman · 29/04/2017 at 18:59

      Cheers Double J…I think I'll go with Balic but may have to flip a coin with Hampton/Otten. It's what I did to decide SPP/Parfitt on ground and so far so good with SPP finally getting a decent score.

        John James · 29/04/2017 at 19:59

        Had SSP on the ground as well Pman,no confidence in Parfitt,lets hope Balic does well for us as too.

        JohndJames · 29/04/2017 at 22:49

        Looks like Balic did the job for us Pman.

Scyb · 29/04/2017 at 22:05

Damn it. I have vc on gazzza but cant loophole anyone to take the score

    The BONT · 29/04/2017 at 22:09

The BONT · 29/04/2017 at 22:09
