Opinions on trading beams?
Thinking about pulling the trigger early on butler to parsons.
Parfitt is stuck in my mids.

Dusty Spurs

Can you not swing someone from the forward line in to the middle to trade Parsons in for Parfitt?

Andrew Yacos

i pulled butler to parsons, banks the money, and will sleep well.

David

TYAO. Need mids before any other so lop his head off

Sully321

do i trade out houston or butler for parsons?

Mich

I went houston. I cant imagine butler being dropped and that's the key right now

Wattsieesq

Houston

TOPHAWK1

Hear hear Jock!

I acted last night in a fit of rage after being omitted. AGAIN. Cashed Newman in for Heath Shaw. I think that is now 3 games he has missed intermittently this season. I need fit players on the park.

Shaw nearly pulled a tonne so no 'trade remorse". (That feeling of despair when a player spuds immediately after trading him in.)

It means I will now grab Pendles next week when I cash in Dayne Beams. Got enough midfield bench cover to hold him over this week.

Welcome

Kev

Saint Nick should lose his halo after the massive skidmark he left on the community underpants last night. He has a long long record of being a total spud in the back half of the season so, it could be wise to dump the old fool now.

TOPHAWK1

I started with him and then traded him out after round one when he sustained that "6 week knee injury". I never traded him back in.

At the time I was furious with Saint Nick as he himself said on national television that he thought he would be out for 4 or more weeks, and then played the following week.

But now I feel redemption now. Nick, this is what happens when you LIE TO US!!! You were crap last night mate, and you will never ever line up in my SC team again.

That said, great win by the Saints last night. They will be a force to be reckoned in coming years. And you will be retired Nick and sitting in the stands.

hedski

Had the VC on Rooey last night Kev, that's 7 duds in a row now, can't pick em.

Kev

Hearts, hedski. I had the VC on him last night too. Went basically unsighted first half.

I've gotta figure out how to login in under an official account

Kev

That should be "hear ya". Stupid autocorrect. Hearts are also good, though

hedski

I'm on "intense debate", I think there is " word press" also.
Didn't stop some drunk bloke from getting on my account other night and making a few silly comments, he also drank all my beer, drained my TAB account and slept with the missus.

hedski

On an sc note went Parfitt to Parsons, gonna lock in Beams to Pendles when teams are finalised in an hour or so, think I'll give him the captains armband too. Cheers.

TOPHAWK1

Thats friggin unreal. That is seriously unlucky. I am going for my 7th dud in a row as well. Should I pick the dude which has burnt us both in round 1 and two? Surely he will lift against the blues today after his shocker last week. Or go for someone a bit out of left field. I feel your pain and disgust mate.

hedski

Treloarsome could come good Toppa.
I didn't get a ton in the guts last week, Parkers 98 and SPP's 97 were the closest, bloody Balic outscored most of my premos.

Tiger Man

Is Goldstein worth taking the punt for or should I play it safe and go stef Martin?

Kev

Play it safe

Touk tuk

whos suits better for ur bye structure?

Wattsieesq

Goldy is greatvalue. He'll come good soon, but I'd wait until that happens

Tiger Man

Thanks guys, have decided to go for stef as I feel he will be at least top 3 whereas goody I'm not so sure

Dan

G'day community, trying to decide who to trade in EVW for… Stewart, Newman or Hampton??

dwhits

Hampton maybe has 1 or so games left of cash gen in him, newman will make cash when he comes back in but if stewart's BE is high then it'd be him i'd pull the trigger

Dan

Stewart's BE is -5, and I reckon he was pretty stiff to get dropped. True, I'd say it is more between Newman and Stewart now.

davo

A lot of us are, I am thinking more Newman now, as Hampton at least playing and Stewart has negative break even still and am not confident in Newman after being dropped twice. Having said that still a tough decision.

Dan

Me too, especially bc I can't see Bews playing in that Geelong side for much longer. Newman's BE is still 15 but with McVeigh back in it is hard to see him getting a game. Also dg'ing Newman will bring more $.

Only issue here is if Newman comes back in next week and scores 80+….

dwhits

Anyone else pulling the trigger on Hampton? BE of 32, av. 65.7… Have Otten in the side as well but I feel Hampton has less milking left in him. The problem is I currently sit on 22 trades left. Not good.

EVW would come in for Hampton, which would leave me with about 260k in the kitty (with 21 trades).

Should I pull the trigger? Or wait till next week? What's the community's gut feel?

TOPHAWK1

EVW is not important enough a rookie to bring in IMO. I would pass on him, especially because you need to pull up the reigns on your trades. Plenty of new rooks on show this week in any case. New rookie opportunities will emerge. Sit tight and do no trades this week. You will feel so much better going into round 8 with 22 trades in your pocket. Cheers

Rabbits16

22 trades is plenty! i have 18 left but will pull the reins in after next weeks 2 trades :/

JDP

Cripps or Oliver??

Advice greatly appreciated

INPieman

Cripps

TOPHAWK1

Cripps for me. Gun.

pod

Cripps. Expecting a huge one today, conditions siut, I've got the VC on him.

Wattsieesq

Oliver

INPieman

How's the catastrophic change for the Hawks. Ditch 2 kids for 2 old blokes. BANG

CJay

I thought Clarko meant he was going to make them wear the Power Ranger jumper again.

INPieman

Wasn't that a beauty!

Kev

Or maybe that's the idea of catastrophic change at the Hawks. They've got no depth

Derek

Hawks by 50pts this week.

Touk tuk

I got the hawks to win in my this week's multi. Go hawks!!!

derek

Cyril to kick 5

INPieman

Hawks to win by 50 & Cyril to kick 5….Derek have you taken your meds today?

Seeker

Remember (about 3 weeks ago) when Newman was a 'must-have' rookie.

I've downgraded him to EVW along with Parfitt to Parsons.

INPieman

I'm thinking of doing the same. And get rid of beans next week

Don't Blush Baby

Is Stewart more likely to get a game again before Newman ?

Temet Nosce

No, look at ladder position. Who is more likely to run the rookies?

hedski

Stewart will play again, hasn't done much wrong.

Leeds17

Has traveled to GC as an emergency too.

Andy

Gablett or Bont Captain?

Wattsieesq

Bont

Tyruddanaut

The hardest decision EVER. Harder than which career path, which uni and which house to buy. No none of those. The hardest decision is who do I put the C and VC on
VC options:
Pendles
Danger
Docherty
C options:
Mitchell (of the Tom variety)
Franklin (Bound for a massive game against the lions)
Fyfe

All comments wanted. ATM I am going for Danger VC and Franklin C

Rabbits16

im VC pendles captain danger

Wattsieesq

+1

Kim

Agree franklin is due for a big one, however a lot were saying that against swans and he only got 80 odd. Key forwards are far too unpredictable to capt, I would only ever vc buddy or jjk never capt far too risky. I have vc Pendles, capt Selwood or hanners don't trust danger at the moment until he doesn't seem sore. Clearly playing sore last 3 weeks.

TOPHAWK1

I am going Treloar VC and Fyfe C. Watch Dangermouse run riot now that he on the outer.

Timchief

Thoughts on Goldstein? Will be under $450k in a few weeks with a round 12 bye. Can he come good?

BigM

Has to come good doesn't he

TOPHAWK1

Goldy is now officially a fallen premium. At a price between $450-and $500K, he is definately worth watching. You cannot take his class and ability away from him. Its a form issue. Once he gets his confidence back,(Hopefully no Pruess) we know what he is capable off. cheers

SCdonkey

Looking to bring him in round 9 for witts.

Timchief

Agreed. No pruess taking centre bounces will help also.

Finnius123

scored 111 this week. Two more good performances and no Preuss for a couple of more weeks and I am looking forward to him.

BigM

I can't decide between EVW or Melican
Thoughts?

Kev

Can't trust that prick with rookies. Not going near a Sydney rook again

Temet Nosce

I've gone for EVW only because he was on the radar preseason

Alex

Goldstein or Stef

Paul

I would go stef.

Paul

Thoughts please on a double down grade this week to free up cash for next week

Trade 1: Parfitt to Parsons
Trade 2: Beams to Balic.

Thank you

Wattsieesq

You've missed the boat with Balic. Look at Black

redgumwon

Never to late to get on Balic at this stage his price is going to go up again this week. He can score alright for a rookie and has DDP

SCdonkey

Its not too late to bring in Balic still priced under 200K plenty of cash to be made assuming Lyon the prick doesnt chop him

Wattsieesq

I'd have to disagree. He's averaging 63 and if he keeps that average, he'll make another $100k before his bye. A good rookie average of 70 makes $130k. I believe $150k is minimum before culling a rookie hence my opinion to jump on Black instead.

TOPHAWK1

Late rookie in for North Melbourne. OUT- Taylor Garner IN- Corey Wagner. Another rook to look at this week. Looks like Mitch Hibberd is on the outer at North now.

TOPHAWK1

Pretty pricey at $206 K. Thought he would have been a bit cheaper

hedski

Milera out Knight in for Crows

Wedge

Hibberd showing as injured in gold supercoach

battlewolf87

how late can you make changes before collingwood v carlton game at 2:10? given adelaide game starts at 1:45pm does it also lock out players from carlton/collingwood at 1:45pm?

hedski

No, 2.09 if you wanna shave it that close.

Holty

I think i might just cop the donut instead of bringing Martin into the rucks. With his bad score last week, he is due to drop in price by approx 40k in 2 weeks so might just wait.

Beezneez

I was hoping for a late out but also hoping like hell the in would have been Preuss. Can't trust ready to bawl face. Now contemplating Preuss to Solco to avoid the donut instead of my preferred trade of Parfitt to Parsons.

derek

have a think about Tom Boyd. $266k DPP. Great JS, could make a few bucks and one day might go big

Wedge

Today was that day. Wonder if anyone took this advice

Beezneez

Only just read your reply Derek. Did have a think about Boyd as well as Witts and Ryder. They all scored well but am okay with Soldo's 67 which was better than a zero for Nank. Glad I went that route instead of Parsons. Soldo scored his 62 from 62% game time but his position may be in doubt when Nank comes back although, personally, I would think Elton would be out before Soldo. Went Preusss to Soldo to gain cash to trade out Beams (for Pendlebury) as I had 7 non players (Beams, Nank, Greene, Newman, Parfitt, Fisher and Eddy.

Leeds17

Is Cripps in the discussion with Bont and Pendles? or 5-10 points a week behind them from here on?

derek

he is $513k, that caught my eye. in a year when we might have to compromise a little to get to full premium, that seems a very good price.

need to look for value this year. my budget is only $520k for every keeper i get, so if i spend over that i need to find others under to keep the average.

Leeds17

Thing that worries me with Cripps in a 105 average from here just won't cut it in my midfield that's lacking a couple of top guys already I really need him to go at worst 110 which i do think he's capable of.

Doc

I'd look at jack steven for that price.

Kev

Oliver is good option he seems to get better every game and it doesn't matter if he's got a dominant ruck or a spud ruck

Pherso

Need advice you awesome community: who to trade out for parsons? Eddy, Butler…others? Cheers crew

Crow

I traded Parsons in for Eddy purely because if he kicks 5 goals in the 2's and still cant get a call up, what chance does he have? Bring in someone who will make cash. If you have good bench cover, you could trade Butler if you want more cash. If you have Houston, I'd trade him over Butler seeing how Tigers look to really like Butler.

redherringfc

I keep holding Eddy, he should get a run soon and he is on the bubble when he does return. If you have enough playing then you could trade Butler, he's close to maximum price, predicted to go up slowly to 330 or so, but his scores have been decreasing so he might not go much over 300.

Cogla13

Not on the bubble, already had one price rise.

derek

this week is going to be ugly.

Derek

i have 8 non-players on bench. I'm up against Higgo, he also has 8 non-players on bench. it might be a case of who is Less Worse will win.

i hope Dalh plays

hedski

I have 7, can loop SPP against Barret or Balic, can also swing Balic fwd to cover Dahl if he's a late out. Will be copping a jam filled bastard tho if Danger and Dahl both out.

INPieman

I'd say most probably have 7+ non playing. Coming up to byes this is a nightmare. I had to double trade to avoid donuts

Top Gun

Another low scoring week ahead. Captain performing may be the difference.

Ben

New to SC can someone please tell me how to loophole?

FCAbel

Put player in question on bench. Make them the only emergency on that line. If they score well put a non playing player on the field on the same line. If not put alternate cracks laying player on field instead. Make sure your non playing player and alternate playing player gave games after the player playing on the bench with emergency.

Adsy

Wells out, Broomhead in for the Pies

INPieman

Wells said get stuffed I've played enough games this year to justify my contract

Juzzy

Is being "Managed". What a joke.

Why can't clubs tell the truth. Instead of omitted, hamstring, knee etc the official line should be …

OUT : D.Wells (fat, unfit, unmotivated)

DefyingMadness

It all comes down to Hampton, Newman or Stewart out for Berry. Thoughts?

DefyingMadness

Normally I would trade out Newman however my round 13 bye is stacked so trading out Hampton suits my structure better. Tough choices.

Dogs

With a few more new rookies being named this week , I didn't feel the need to jump on on any this week. Have to budget my upgrades to around 500k each, so I went beams to Bont at 600k and marchbank to hibberd at 400k. Hibberd was in my team all pre season, think he can average 90-95 this season , and I'll be chasing Others to fill my backline around the byes. ( only started with 2 keepers laird and shaw).

Perfect timing for Myers to come in, SPP downgrade at his bye.

SCdonkey

Hope Myers can keep his spot, it is nice timing. But so many are to come back in for the Dons. Lets hope for the best he does well would be a nice downgrade.

redherringfc

Sloane at a damp hobart. Is it worth putting the V on him?

Rivo

Bullet bitten. Double downgrade:

Parfitt to Parsons;
Newman to EVW.

Cash warchest for next week. Bang Bang. Good luck Community.

wightyswarriors

That Parsons trade really worked !!

DavidSA

Went Beams & Bowes > Franklin & Parsons
326k in bank no trades next week (cooling jets)
waiting for Merrett and Wines to bottom out.
Merrett R9 Wines R10

Wedge

Wines great pick up after the bye. Good timing on his price fall

Spanner

Taranto's 66 or Butler and Parsons

LJB

Probably take it will likely all score about that and avoid the risk of picking one of the thee and the have a stinker

steve1

Waite is on 80 points 23 minutes into 1st quarter!!

Russty_

And North 44 to 0 Crows!…lol WTF

Ja191

56-0

Russty_

Make that 56 to zip, Otten and Hampton, not one point between them, yay!

Beezneez

And he put Tom Lynch out for next week. Well done dickhead.

DefyingMadness

I screwed up and in need of some help. Was meant to go Newman to Berry and swap him with Adams who is in the centre. Didn't realise collingwood were playing already so I didn't end up doing the trade. Now if I do the trade I have to play Berry on field.
Here is my team what does the community think I should do? https://gyazo.com/b23c1583c140a25e0c6ec033303cf6e

redherringfc

Do the trade. Hampton has had a stinker, so Berry on field will not be too bad.

You also have a donut in the fwds unless you are trading out Parfitt before he plays.

DefyingMadness

Yeah trading him to Parsons. Think I will just bring in Berry. Also do I back SPP to beat TT?

The BONT

Waite is on 88 at 1st Quarter

ROOS 64
CROWS 0

TOPHAWK1

Anybody has Waite? On 86 at quarter time. LOL Crows vast asleep zzzzzzzz and the spudding is underway folks. Otten and Hampton have one pozzie between the two of them at quarter time.

Russty_

Ugh it's too painful to watch…the spudding, plenty will jump on Waite next week I bet.

Beezneez

Hopefully he gets rubbed out for his sling tackle.

Keenbutclueless

Four players on field Laird, Hampton, Otten and EVE. Combined total of 16 points at quarter time. Time to switch off and stop torturing myself. This is too painful

wombatsfc

Kruez will be a top 4 ruck by the end of this round and Smurph will still be a top 4 mid. Apologies from all the march and april heros who cajoled me will be accepted between 9:00am and midnight monday

terry

I have no idea what you are on about once again

Eskimo

Trelore is like cancer. Just a little bit of damage to your team each week so you don't think off going to the doctor and CUTTING THE FUNKER OUT!!! changing his name to Adam Tumor.

TOPHAWK1

hehehehe. Adam Tumoore…. Well, Treloar has lifted going into half time. On 42. Still a bit below par, but there is hope yet.

jabba

how the fk is slone on 45 at half time with 5 touchs and 4 tackles

DavidSA

Must be all contested and he going at 100%

Boltons Blues

Hampton and Otten you jock staining cats.
Already looking foward to hitting that T button on your names

hedski

Otten coming good should hit his be, Hampton…pus.

Russty_

Bloody frustrating, especially Hampton, what a spud!..3 disposals.
Think it's gonna be one of those weeks again…prediction 2200, actual score 1850 lol

TOPHAWK1

Marchbank is holding my backline together with band aides. On 61 at half time. Otten and Hampton crapping their pants with 30 and 14 respectively. I think they are both ripe for the plucking next week. Treloar and Pendles both below par at half time. 42 and 38 respectively. Treloar my VC.

Russty_

Ditto Hawk, except I have Pendles as VC, hope they all can lift a bit!..or a lot

JohndJames

I had Adams and I might take it if he gets to 120+,or should I just go with Bont as Capt.

Russty_

117 from Adams is a bit tempting John, especially how fubar this week is already, Bont should be a good option though, I'm counting on him.

JohndJames

Hi Russty,I went with Adams due to his consistency,which he has delivered again,120 is usually my cut off,so just under,Bont can get high scores though,just a bit worried that the only time I put the VC or C on him was when he scored his lowest score of 88 two weeks ago,so I have a decision to make.

Russty_

Hey John…well mate, the SAFE decision would be to take the 114?…it seems to be now, in case Bont gets tagged or something worse, heaven forbid.

JohndJames

My head said take the 114,but for some bloody reason I went with Bont,now I feel sick,just hope it works out.

Derek

107 from Marchbank is beautiful.

Didn't get VW, hoping Berry can do the job

DavidSA

1)Don't trust Pendles now
2)Sloane shows us why you don't pay top dollar
3)Treloar your a puss

Russty_

Treloar's a massive stain…think he has to go sooner than later…like Bucks will be from Pies.

SCdonkey

I have to hang on Trealor until his bloody bye. No point of trading him now

DefyingMadness

Can someone please help my post above. I think I am screwed

Ben

just do it or don't. its not the end of the world lol

hedski

Dunno mate, either suck up Hamptons crap score or trade Newman to Pelican and look to move Adams back later on.

hedski

Should have double downgraded and got Pendles next week instead of making him BLOODY CAPTAIN… Maggot.

Russty_

Vickers-Willis, another Rookie dud`going by today's score.

DavidSA

Yeah never picked him up

Russty_

Me too and glad of it…Parsons and Poxy Pendles for me..lol

hedski

Same

TOPHAWK1

Just like Zac Fisher last week, EVW today was very ordinary. Didn't touch either of them.

Top Gun

I have them both. Lol.

Wombatsfc

Kudos to the 568 who Waited for Jarred to backup his 104. A Monster move would be to dump StNick for his annual slump and ride Waite until his bye. If he's still fit keep him otherwise pocket the 200k

Joshua

No tips right so far but my blues look to be in a good position so I'm ecstatic.

David

Grundys a stain in my undies. Either he is injured or he is sh…

INPieman

Your being shafted by a big Cox. It's no coincidence he's tonned up every game Cox hasn't played & vice versa

Kev

Nup he's a dinosaur waiting to become extinct. Kruezer kicked his butt and would have kicked it further if cox wasn't playing. No room for dumb giants who are scared of packs in todays afl.
Lucky for me I've got Sandi & witts with a bit of Nank on the pine.

Top Gun

This is the weirdest season I have played in many years. So many dud rookies and the premiums who don't perform aka Treloar. Frustrating to the core.

Russty_

You're not wrong mate, this season is bizarro world!…you try and pick a solid dependable team and then everything goes fubar lol
I believe Treloar's a burnman spud now, I'm gonna punt him when I get the chance, after all my other bloody issues.

INPieman

I can't believe Treloar's scoring. He chops it up far too much for a highly paid player

Top Gun

Usually you can pick the ultra premos especially with the way he finished the season last year. Might be time to jump off Pies players.

Russty_

Yeah he was a Jet last season, maybe living in Melbourne has corrupted his soul lol

DavidSA

Marchbank you have earned my D7 spot mate
Your too valuable to lop

TOPHAWK1

He was GOOD, VERY GOOD today. Lots of contested marks and hard at the footy. After that effort, he can stick around for a while longer. Otten was OK, but Curtly Hampton is on his bike next week and might go Myers early if he puts up a decent effort against Freo. (DPP). And then Beams to Pendles at his bargain basement price of around $565K. Bloody beautiful.
