Is Dane Beams a hold or do I upgrade to premo I have pendles, treloar, Fyfe, danger, JPK, Rockliff and SPP


1 word yyyaaaabbbbllleeeeeetttttt!!!!




It's a bit of a sideways trade, nothing wrong with Beams at the moment. Look to make trades elsewhere and trade Beams later in the season.


I'm flirting with giving him the flick. He was always intended to be a stepping stone for me. I didn't plan on it being this early as he's only made 40k, but with that 67 in his system his price will stagnate for the next few weeks. Pendles is 100k more


Hold. Come back to him later when your at full premo & can asses your trade situation


Good call Pieman he will be one if not the last out if need be and its looking like a need be.


Brisbane have rnd 11 bye. Worth holding at least until then


Getting rid of Beams is a luxury trade. Which doesn't exist. If you must get rid of him it would make more sense to dispose of him at his bye for a Port or GC player who has had theirs. That has some validity if your flush with trades


The Bont, if you decide to dump Beams


Love you Jock


Always a great podcast boys

Mystic Mac

Jock for PM

mitch arthur

what do i do with greene and nank


I've got both as well πŸ™


i have both aswell , and im ranked in the top 100 , which will be a was ranked in the top 100 , because im taking my doughnut this week and keeping both , 100 points might sound like a lot to cop in a week , but over the next 16 weeks its only 6 points a week ..
so ill be upgrading Beams to Pendlebury who will give me more than the 6 points a week over the next 16 weeks that ill be looking for
good luck with your decision


cop a doughnut? do you have non-playing rookies on your bench? I've advise trading them to Parsons/Black if you do mate, 100 points is massive when you're going for rank.


Hi Morrow …i have eddy & parfitt …im trading parfitt for parsons ….but i dont want to trade eddy because if he plays in the bye rds he will be usefull , and i hate wasting sideways trades on rookies , im better wasting that trade and doing a sideways trade on a premo , which i dont want to do aswell , because Greene has the rd 13 bye and he is the only fwd with that bye rd in my team …so im thinjkng if i had a rookie that scored 50 points on field + Beams say 100 ….i swap beams for pendless for 120 …so i only loose 30 points anyway …unless i did a premo sideways switch with Greene to yeo then i dont loose …which goes back to my rd 13 bye problem again πŸ™


if only i brought in Balic instead of Fisher , i wouldnt of had this problem …then again if only the 2 players i had were smarter and didnt get reported it would have been even better


just had a brainstorm
what is the definition of a top 6 fwd .
is it a player that has the highest average or is it the players that scores the most points
because with 16 games to go if T.Greene has an average of 100 but misses 2 games he scores 1400 points
which is equivelent to a player that plays 16 games and has an average of 87.5 points .
Greene are fired !!!!!!


Nice thinking!


although its not quite so bad if you have a decent sub.


I like to work on avg/game and I fire non-playing rookies, which is why Barrett and Eddy have already left my team. But U'r well ahead of me…..I should just read not comment here!


Keep Nank for sure. Toby Greene I'm not so sure. He's already been reported god knows how many times. And now anything he does wrong will see him rubbed out again. And he's an angry little bugger. I'd think carefully about keeping him


Hold if possible, otherwise if you're copping doughnuts with both, trade Nank


To suggest to someone – Out of the TWO players (NANK & Greene) IF copping doughnuts with both trade NANK over that dick head Green is the silliest thing i have heard on here in Years.
(a) NANK out for 1 week not 2 weeks like Greene
(b) NANK is averaging better then Green
(c) NANK has DPP unlike dip-shit Green who will more then likely get suspended AGAIN due to his issues.

If you are going to give people advice give them the right advice and not STUPID bias advice based on the club you follow.

Hold both players if you can, but if you have to trade one for what ever the reason then GREENE is the guy that needs to go. From an un-biased person.

bob the builder

Trade 1: JOM>Pendles
Trade 2:
Option 1: Otten>Premo
Option 2: Hampton or Marchbank> DEF Rookie
Option 3: Parfitt> Parsons if named
What does the community suggest?


Option 1 for me I would get a shaw, rance or do hearty for otten rookie options this week are bad


I have also duplicated Trade 1 and have taken option 3 as I liked the look of Parsons when he last played.


I did trade one also the other option you could do is Otten to hibberd in the backline. Costs you 40k.


Crouching's story is one of the most beautiful stories I've heard in a fair while.

I'm torn between trying to get Pendles in this week or hold off until next week. On one hand I need to lob Parfitt off and maybe sure up some more cash generation. On the other hand, it's Pendles and he mightn't be too much cheaper. Here's my team, what should I do?


Get Pendles .You need to get the rookies out and premos in or you'll fall behind!


Will try. Only problem is that I have 90k in the bank so I need to get more cash from a second trade which parfitt doesn't provide.


Could wait a week on Pendles, still has a breakeven of 124


Pendles break even is 124 i think so even if he scores 130+ he wont go up much anyway due to his 67 2 weeks ago. I am getting him in next week for spp or taranto.

Benjamin B

Thoughts on Sam Jacobs: Ive got Nank and Grundy in the ruck and looking to swing Nank into forward line.

Sam Jacobs i feel is bet value option atm the Martin so on dropping in value next few weeks and i need someone in this week.

Or do i look elsewhere?

Touk tuk

Keep an eye on the bye rounds too. Only ruckman i can get is martin.


Wait a week for Stef. Sauce still looks a bit slow and not confident around the ball


Who is the best ruck option? (Already have sandy)


Martin, Grundy and Mumford.. I have mumford personally for a solid pod. But I would probably lean to towards Martin.

Josh Kelly

Here is the plan for the next few weeks would love if everyone told me what they think.
This week trade out Toby Greene and Marchbank for Docherty and Aaron Black.
Round 8 Trade out Dan Butler and Curtly Hampton for Dahlhaus and a rookie defender (Don't know what my options will be yet)
Round 9 Trade out Dan Houston and Sam Powell-Pepper for Toby Greene (Bringing back in) and David Myers (Hopefully if he's playing by then)

Benjamin B

Docherty and Dahlhaus are must trade ins.
I wouldn't be trading out greene then getting him back in, waste of trade. Keep greene, its only two weeks and he will finish a top 6 forward


Finding a decent rookie defender in round 8 may be challenging.


Unless Ryan gets a gig


Double downgrade this week, like Juzzy said, there may be no rookies on the bubble in Round 8. Hold Greene as well


Only rookie next week and wont even be on the bubble i think may be myers for essendon if he gets a game this week which most suspect he will. Nothing else at this stage you need to get a defensve rookie this week or even double downgrade this week. May have to cop the 0 from greene if no cover. Depends on if paying for league or overall.


dont trade greene


Butler- Stef Martin via nank going fwd
Parfitt- black or parsons

Good trades communIty?


Sounds solid to me, Levi. Keep an eye on teams to see which Geelong rookie gets named.


If both named go with Parsons


Is it worth splashing on Sloane if you've got a big kitty? He's going to finish top player of the year, can't see him dropping more than 40 from where he's currently at. Thoughts? Could get him on for beama who will need to be flicked eventually and is going down


I wouldn't suggest getting him for that price, if you don't have Pendlebury defiantly get him or Dangerfield but danger still has another couple weeks of price drops


He'll get injured or rested


A smart coach would use a warchest on 2 upgrades opposed to buying into a player at a ridiculous price that can't be sustained


I'm with INP on this one. With cash hard to build up having a large amount in the bank is probably a few downgrades worth. Blowing it all on one player isn't the best move.

Pendles was 633k two weeks ago


He's playing in a team undefeated, and played more than half his games at Adelaide Oval. Coincidence? Save $70k and go Bont or $130k for Dusty


Thats a big call slone finishing as the top player of the year. Yes he is killing it at the moment, however, he dosnt handle a tag very well and hasn't been tagged yet. As soon as he does play collingwood or freo etc they will tag him and he will not punch out 130+ scores. No he is also not worth paying 670k for when you can get pendles 100K cheaper and will score similar to slone from here on out. If you keep paying top dollar for your mids/def or forwards you will run of of money fast especially this season when cash gen is the hardest its ever been.

Many teams will fins this out shortly when the rookies dry up or get dropped. Next week may be an example of this when everyone wants to paint the fence and there is no one to actually go down to. He will not ontinue to average 130 he has only ever had 1 year where he averaged over 110 and do't forget adelaide hasn't lost yet, they will lose games and slone will not score as well as a result.


I'm double downgrading, sound advice everyone


Anyone else down to 20 trades?



Top Gun

Yep am a tradeaholic but it keeps me up closer to the top until i run out. Lol


Im starting to think im being conservative this year with 25 trades left

Daniel Z

I'm on 25 as well but I'm going to be burning through them for the next fortnight.

Josh Kelly

Down to 24 after this weeks trades


I am only casue i traded riewoldt (assumed he nwould be out for 2-3 minimum!!) and gawn otherwise happy as i have traded smart to good scoring rookies (balic over fisher for example, bit lucky but i'll take it, and traded out parfit last week) to cheap premos hanners and pendles next week. You need to be aggressive if going for overall though otherwise you will be left behind very quickly.

If you look at top 20 teams almost all of them have a full premo mids (beams being one of them) but no rookies playing in mids, no swallos or omearas and the likes either. No point being conservative at this stage need to cull rookies like butler, parfitt, houstan etc that are ripe and wont go up much more to premos who will obviously score more points. E.g i went swallow to hanners last week and next week its spp or taranto to pendles then my mids are also full premo. Then i will concentrate on def and fwd lines which are cheaper to upgrade and dont make you as much points as the mids do as well.


Having only 20 trades is suicide for your team come to the pointy end of the season.

I would rather be ranked top 1000 to 2000 this time of year and have 25 trades then to be ranked #1 with only 20 trades left.

Phil McKrackin

Yep me too…and that's in AF DT as well, …….RDT is really bad.

Cpt Pugwash

27 (considering 2 trades down this week)

Rank 635


This Week's Team Meeting at Pieman's Firing Range

Well fellas……What the F was that!

Gary & Scott: In a time of crisis it’s bloody good to call up the 2 greatest fantasy footballers of all time & watch ya’s put on a masterclass. I bloody love ya’s! Keep it comin

Dan Hanners: I got ya back on the p*ss 2 weeks ago & you’ve delivered. Now head straight to the bar & grab a cold one!

Beams & Fyfe: What’s going on with you 2 peanuts! Only one way to solve your woes. Follow Dan, grab a can & Harden the F Up!!!

Joel Selwood: Yes I know mate. That bloody pesky Greenwood tagged the absolute crap out of ya. Believe me if Levi was here I’d shoot him twice

Patrick Bloody Dangefield! What the bloody hell is up with you. At least Joel got tagged. What’s your bloody excuse!!! LIFT

Jeremy Howe: Yes I saw it. That bloody Lynden Dunne took your ball. Let’s hope that spud is back where he belongs in the VFL this week

Nick Newman: I’ll be surprised to see your name on the team sheet this week. Your decision making was rubbish! Pickettesque. Remind me to never watch you play again

SPP: Shit I wish you could play Brisbane every week

Jarrod Witts: Whilst you’ve been good it’s almost time to say F#ck Witts!

Nank the Tank: If you’re going to elbow someone do it properly!

Otten & Marchbank: I’ve got a decision to make. And one of you won’t survive! Say your prayers

Parfitt: Come over here son. You did your hammy & looked like you’d been shot! Excellent preparation!!! And if the wisdom inspired words of Tony Montana have taught us anything. “SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND”

Now p*ss off the lot of ya


Taking Ar%e and kicking names Pieman, So tell me, can we no longer afford to let Sloane go, i cant see him dropping in coin, only climbing, hes on another level, if you dont get him now hes going to be way out of reach and miss all these great scores, which we all obviously all need because of our spuds in Danger and Fyfe, thought on this ballsy move, you are my idol after all, taught me all i know,,,,,,


Skindog. Your brother Slaonedog, wipe him off your shopping list. He can't sustain that output & price. He's on another level at Adelaide oval no doubt. But history suggests away from home he's not as good. You should be looking at your team & looking at deficiencies ie: low scoring positions like a rookie scoring 50-60 & looking to replace them with a player capable of toning up. And you need to do that as quickly & efficiently as possible by using fallen premiums who have had a bad game or 2. Arbitrage. Buy low sell high. Don't buy into something overpriced & set yourself back from an opponent who will follow those principals & get to full premo much faster


I knew youd steer me clear, and talk sense into me, i had him at the start and then couldnt fit him in my structure, but god i wish i'd kept him in, ahhhhh the trials and tribulations of this great game we love, Supercoach and AFL, not that i have anything to love this season which im sure your releshing in, lol, when will you be my friend again?????


Im reaching out????


I had him as well until he busted his face again. Then replaced him with Hanners & then on the eve of the season I replaced Hanners with Gary. And now I have both of them but no Sloane! The swings & round abouts of the game. Makes it so much fun


Gary was a brave move, but i think will be worth it, as proved last weekend,,,,


Have watched Gary & Pendles closely for years & see why they rank so high. So damaging when they are at full flight. If they are alive I just can't leave them out. But the torch is being passed to Bont. And I need to get him in


Agreed, Bont is a weapon, and then a lot of space to the next, Sloane and Bont will be starters next year !00%




Beautiful work


Thoughts on Jeremy Mcgovern as a POD Jock?


Ballsy call i personally wouldn't trust him for 95+ average especailly given wc play shit anywhere outside of perth, this week will tell us more about mcgovern and yo yo yeo i reckon port away.

Does have round 12 bye though which hardly any good defenders do. Would be an excellent pod if he keep it up mate.


What u recon fellas
– Butler to Franklin?
– Hampton to Hibberd?


Butler to Heeney?


Butler to Buddy, Hampton can wait a week or two


Wingard and Heeney or McRae and Parsons /Black ?


I suppose it depends on what Jock harped on about in the podcast. Do you think Wingard and Heeney can be top 6 forwards?


Macrae easily over Wingard and Heeney.


drrr Beams for Ablett or Pendles drrr
Sick of the question
Just do it plz


Neither, Jack Steven who will average 110 here on in !




I see out the window premiums tumbling from trees.


Theoretically double downgrade this week, then double upgrade next week is better than 1 and 1 each week, as rookies on the bubble are going to be better this week?


yes double downgrade this week as can't see much if any to downgrade to next week.


Will Sloane be 700 next week ?


depends what he scores.


definitely not worth getting in until he drops to low 600's or high 500's which it will look at all the other premos all have dropped at some stage, slone will be no different, as soon as he gets tagged or adelaide somehow play crap and lose he will not score as well. Don't forget at his current price he needs to keep averaging 125+ to maintain it so as soon as he dropped a 70-90 his price will tumble especially if he has 2 crap weeks in a row like hanners etc. Wait for him to drop is my advice not worth the cash as his points have already gone, don't go chasing!!


Sometimes you just gotta pay full price for nice things.


Time to go bang bang bang bang. Bringing in parsons and grundy this week. And Adams and pendles next week.


O'Meara and Parfitt to Parsons and Hibberd this week
Next week, Pendles in for sure, maybe S.Martin
Week after Rocky in

Bang Bang


Butler,Houstan,Hayward which one for black


Hayward, probably going to get dropped this week.


Yep, same




Is it too risky to hold off till next week on this trade. Have 370 in the bank and wanna go j Kelly to pendles and Dayne beams to Rory Sloane.
Please help! Is this too much of a risk?


I reckon go for it mate


So your saying I will have enough to upgrade to these two next week?


You could cull a cash cow this week to be sure the money is there next week


If you can do it this week why wait? Slone will go up after this week and beams will go down not sure why you would bother waiting a week it will cost you more to do those trades next week.

Do you not need to upgrade elsewhere though? Betting your forward line and def needs upgrading more than your mids, beams and kelly are luxury trades why did you pick kelly in the first place if you didnt think he was a keeper?

You will run out of trades very quickly if you keep upgrading players like kelly and beams. They are averaging both around the 100 mark whereas otten and hampton etc need to be upgraded sooner rather than later.


and beams injured for at least 2 weeks


I have 500k in the bank

Should I either

1. Swap Parfitt and Pickett for Pendles and Black/Parsons and cop a doughnut on Nank

2. Swap Parfitt and Pickett for a Premium Ruck (swing Nank on to the Forward bench) and Black/Parsons


option 2 unless only playing for league


Yeah I'm only playing for league




Are there any solid forward premos apart from Macrae, Dalh and Nank or should I just upgrade other lines


For class and fun to watch, Rooey. I have same and the fwd line always looks stronger with saint nick in there

Ya boy

Nick Riewoldt


I like lynch and JJK a lot


I hope to fall asleep(die peacefully) like a grasshopper in a pool of sex juice….(female jizz, not man jizz, unless its Danger jizz, and he's sh!tting me atm).
Bang bang.
Too much jizz?! I love Tuesday podcasts.


I burst out laughing driving home only to realize such poetic words brought a tear to my eye.
Hail the Crouching One


Another cracking children's story from Crouching! I've definitely lived the grasshopper lifestyle


Great podcast as always gentlemen.

Jock, I respectfully disagree with your position on Gary Ablett.

No doubt he is getting a little "long in the tooth" and I generally loathe "long in the tooth" players. But we are talking about GARY ABLETT here.

Gazza pumped out 210 SC points in a LOSING side last week! Let me say that again, 210 friggin Supercoach points! That is scary good.

The next best score (from memory) this season was that 184 scored by JJK in round 1 against North Melbourne.

I reckon you can only pull a score like that if you are a proven superstar and FIT at the same time. Gazza might be healthy again and we all know he is a superstar.

I am seriously considering doing the ultimate sideways trade this week to secure his services. And his bye in round 9 makes him a nice loophole play by the way. He is at home against his old flame the Geelong Football Club this week. And we know his missus is homesick. Think about that…………

OUT- Dayne Beams
IN- Gary Ablett

I am pondering, and pondering hard on this season defining decision.

Cheers community

I can pull the mother of all side trades this week.


Tempting Toppa, but no sideways until team is set for me.


Disclipline, disclipline. No sideways crap. My mantra every day of the week Hedski.

But there is something really good going on with Gaz.

My gut keeps telling me. Get him in! You have to get him in! Guess I will sleep on it.


i dont think Beams to Gaz is sideways, i see it as a upgrade, dont see Beams as a keeper, i see him slowing down as he's been out of the game for a bit and will tire, was always a stepping stone to me,,,


Ballsy. Considering he has a bye in 2 weeks & as much durability as Beams

Top Gun

Gutsy, but no guts no glory. His taped shoulder still worries me and his slight frame, meaning a ceremonious tackle dump means bye bye shoulder and season. Still he is God for a reason.

Don't Blush Baby

Cats this week – In – Menzel,Parsons – Out – Parfitt,Black


You already have Black DBB???
Sry misread, yeah agree re selections


Stanley will get a game.



Have 25 trades and 285k. Any problems with my team?


JOM and Cammo unless he gets picked (unlikely). No Nank backup.


Not a bad side.

Some challenges you have in the short term (Round 7) are as follows-
1- Donut on your ruck line. (No Nank replacement unless you trade)
2- Donut on your forward line. (Black out according to latest team update by Dont blush baby-reliable source, Parfitt out, Eddy unlikely inclusion )
3- Donut risk in your midfield. JOM may get axed, and out of your 3 emergencies, 2 are currently dropped and one could be dropped after his 35 last week.

Good luck mate.


what trades should i make then. i was thinking omeara and parfitt out but not sure who to get and what to do about the nank stiuation

Top Gun

Also not enough cash generation with Pickett, Barrett and Eddy not playing atm


Any problems with your team? Are you serious mate?

If most of your players play your team looks GREAT – However in reality you're screwed at least this week even if you make 2 trades you'll struggle to have 22 play.

Are you aware Beams, NANK, Parfitt, Fisher wont be playing. Also Black, Pickett & Barrett most likely wont be playing. It wouldn't surprise me if Omeara gets dropped.

The worst I am fearing is if Danger gets rested this week.


Great Podcast again Jock. I want to be the Grasshopper too. Nank out and Parfitt down, 23 trades, $44k so help convince me if Option 1 still the go Community???

1. Otten & Parfitt to Macrae & McNiece;
2. Marchbank & Parfitt to Yeo & McNiece;
3. Hampton & Parfitt to Hibberd & Parsons;
4. Butler & Parfitt to Steele & Parsons.


Nothing wrong with option 3 mate. Fattened rooks to a little F lamb and a bargain potential D5/6 keeper.


Thanks TopHawk. Not convinced on Hibberd and worried he will run out of steam after a long layoff.


Don't mind 1 & 4 if you swap Steele for Heeney


Thanks Leeds. With the Swans playing so poorly it does worry me with Heeney. Recovering from GF also. Will see how selections go.


What do we do with Franklin??


Hold. Back him to come good.


Hold mate I'm bringing him in round 8 along with Merrett
Fanklin I hope not reach BE of 110
Merrett set to lose another 15-20k and happy to pick him up for 540k


Could Merrett just not have the scoring potential though Dave, as he did before Heppell, Watson etc came back in?
At the moment, he has an average average, for a super premo.


Only notible Thing i separate is his last two games were poor de%
He is getting leather poisoning like last year, he is a gun and has a massive upside when he gets better use via less pressure


Chumbawumbaring pod cast fellas

Fittingly it was all over the shop much like the scores last week but as always i listen young grasshopper.


Who do i bring in this week: Martin, Mumford, Jacobs or Grundy?


Martin, one poor week, in a team that didn't score SC points


hi community who do you believe the best POD in the midfield is who are worth trading in

cheers and great podcast fellas


Seb Ross, Jack Steven, Mitch Duncan, Robbie Gray, GARY ABLETT lol


Merrett stiff to not get the nod here


True David, didn't even consider him cause I thought way more than 5.2% of people would have him. that's nuts!


Lachie Neale is a massive POD. Averaging 113 and only in 2.9% of teams.


that is the most disturbing fractured fairy tail I think I've ever heard… made me totally forget about the carnage of last round… fantastic effort, crouching!!!


Sick of my cookie cutter team and I think defence is the perfect place to start diversifying.
Im interested in Williams and McGovern who are both around 3% ownership.
Who to chop of Marchbank and Otten and for which of the above community?


Either or for the chopping block, Marchbank doesn't seem capable of scoring anything more than in the 70's, and many people have said Otten's scoring will decrease now Jenkins is back in the side, which is probably true, but I'm gonna have one more look at Ottens this week to confirm that.
Out of Williams and McGovern, I'd definitely go Williams, Hurley could be a good pod too, two tonnes in his last two starts…and then there's Hibberd..Mr glass legs lol


Hi Guys,

My Question is "What to do with Roughead". I know he looks ordinary, but he still scored more than the other rookies last week

1. Double down grade Parifitt and Otten to Parsons and EVW ($750k war chest
2. Paint the fence Parifitt and Roughead to Pendles and rookey ($330k war chest)
3, Bang Bang Otten and Roughead to Pendles and Macrae/Yeo (no war chest)

Feel like panic trading as I lost league win on the weekend


If you want to improve your points and have some trading power next week, option 2, if you want to smash the points in this week, option 3.
If you are thinking more in the big picture, maybe option 1 is better, so you have a shitload of cash to get whoever you want in the next 2 weeks.

If you're thinking about option 3, money tends to present itself, by way of either new rookies coming through, or injuries occurring, forcing you to move on solid premos…meanwhile, you're still scoring well with Macrae and Pendles.


Thanks for the advice. Carnage predicted this week, might have to keep Roughie for another week


Option 3! Love it. Pendles and Macrea over Yeo. But Yeo probably a better bye fit.Then next week you can resume cash generation with a couple of rookie culls for two new rooks (Maybe Myers if picked etc) or if rooks are scarce have a rest in trading and resume cash generation the week after. Just my take.


Thanks for the advice.


Jock mate… I just want to say that I bloody love your podcast, been listening every week for the last 4 or 5 years now. Something I look forward to every week, keep them coming mate. Cheers….


Likewise Dee.


As tempting as a few of the fallen premos look I am going to double down grade this week.

Otten, Hampton, Marchbank, Butler have a bit more cash left in 'em but it may bugger things up if we don't have viable trade in options over the coming weeks.


I feel, that's not a bad option at all Juzzy, not even half the season has passed and I think we need to think more about the big picture, if you have assloads of cash next week, you can get whoever the hell you want for the next two weeks, drastically improving your overall side…rather than chasing guys like Yeo, Hibberd , McGovern etc, who will probably turn into spuds..or injure themselves ( Hibberd)
You can get guys like Pendles, Gazza , etc next week..bang bang, and then bang bang again the week after if you're so inclined.


Looks like we got lucky with Nank and Fyfe! Theage reporting (rather convincingly) is should have been 2 weeks for both. Stoopid rules I'm glad the MRP did what they did, both for supercoach and life. Hanger on illegally cops and elbow, that will fix the hanging on issue..


Not sure how it's a good thing for Nank to be out for a week, especially for those who don't have cover, but yeah, FK the hangers on lol…but it's only one week, which is a hell of a lot better than two.




Is it worth going Hampton to simpson at his price


Otten to Simpson


Whick do you get rid of first Hampton, Burton, Marchbank, Otten


I've been thinking it might be Otten. Jenkins is back now and that seems to effect Otten's scoring. North V Adelaide is down in Hobart. It will be wet and windy which doesn't suit big guys but will suit Hampton? Marchbank has JS. So I'd say cash in on Otten and upgrade to a premo if you can and a rookie


Otter No Doubt

Andrew Yacos

marchbank, simply on appreciation potential of others.


SC specials this week

You have a few short term dramas, but that is still a damn good side mate! Bloody Nank donut. You just have to cop that. Nank is on my forward line. Thank fark for that. No dramas at all with your trades this week. I like them a lot. Because you have a 4 premo backline, the Otten cull is ideal for Mc Niece. Use that cash to invest in your midfield. JOM has to go.
A lot can happen in a week and your trades for next week sound good in theory, but obviously many ifs and whats. (Myers might not play and WHE could tonne up again this week) Cheers

I would hold Otten one more week, and also advise to seek other than Myers.


Why don't you trade parfitt down to a fwd bubble rookie and cover the donut? Otten won't lose too much money and I reckon he'll make more money covering his BE.

Essendon and Geelong watchers/supporters, please help!.

I have not watched these teams much this year, so have no idea what sort of players Parsons or McNiece are and need/want to bring one of them in …. but who?

Can anyone shed light on job security/role/point generation to help me?


My fwd line has the two Bulldogs, Nank, rookies and Greene

My question is do I trade Greene to Yeo or am I wasting a trade



I have the same plus Buddy. I'm holding Greene.
