Let’s chew some round 7 SuperCoachΒ FAT folks.

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

    Dusty Spurs · 06/05/2017 at 09:00

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

    Andrew Yacos · 06/05/2017 at 10:14

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

    David · 06/05/2017 at 11:24

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

Sully321 · 06/05/2017 at 09:36

do i trade out houston or butler for parsons?

    Mich · 06/05/2017 at 10:36

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

      Wattsieesq · 06/05/2017 at 12:45


TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 09:45

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.


Kev · 06/05/2017 at 09:48

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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:06

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 11:14

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

      Kev · 06/05/2017 at 11:36

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 11:37

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

        hedski · 06/05/2017 at 11:45

        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 · 06/05/2017 at 11:48

        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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:39

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:45

        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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:10

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

    One Touch Wonder · 06/05/2017 at 11:34

    Get Sauce. SHARK MOVE

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 11:38

    Play it safe

      Touk tuk · 06/05/2017 at 12:27

      whos suits better for ur bye structure?

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2017 at 12:46

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

    Tiger Man · 06/05/2017 at 12:57

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:11

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

    dwhits · 06/05/2017 at 10:22

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:37

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:32

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:36

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:20

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 · 06/05/2017 at 10:28

    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

      Aydo · 06/05/2017 at 10:50

      I'm thinking the same about EVW. Not sure he's worth trading in, if you can swing at trade somewhere else then upgrade a Hampton or Otten it you've got the $$ it would be better I think.

    Rabbits16 · 06/05/2017 at 11:30

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

JDP · 06/05/2017 at 10:46

Cripps or Oliver??

Advice greatly appreciated

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 10:49


    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 10:52

    Cripps for me. Gun.

    pod · 06/05/2017 at 11:27

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

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2017 at 12:48


INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 10:53

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

    CJay · 06/05/2017 at 11:07

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

      INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 11:09

      Wasn't that a beauty!

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 11:40

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

    Derek · 06/05/2017 at 11:48

    Hawks by 50pts this week.

      Touk tuk · 06/05/2017 at 12:26

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

        derek · 06/05/2017 at 13:01

        Cyril to kick 5

          INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 13:27

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

Seeker · 06/05/2017 at 10:55

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

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

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 11:03

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

      Northernsoul74 · 06/05/2017 at 12:57

      Beams to Pendles next week for me.

        INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 13:01

        Like the sound of that Northern

        hedski · 06/05/2017 at 13:11

        About to pull that trade now.

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 13:11

        Me too. Beams will turn into his old jumper, but with another number on it. Number 10.

          INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 13:29

          And slap the VC on him

Don't Blush Baby · 06/05/2017 at 11:08

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

    Temet Nosce · 06/05/2017 at 11:57

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

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 12:20

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

      Leeds17 · 06/05/2017 at 12:34

      Has traveled to GC as an emergency too.

Andy · 06/05/2017 at 11:17

Gablett or Bont Captain?

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2017 at 12:49


Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 11:19

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:
C options:
Mitchell (of the Tom variety)
Franklin (Bound for a massive game against the lions)

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

    Rabbits16 · 06/05/2017 at 11:33

    im VC pendles captain danger

      Wattsieesq · 06/05/2017 at 13:19


    Kim · 06/05/2017 at 11:56

    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.

    CazzaRazza · 06/05/2017 at 12:33

    Pendles VC and Fyfe C. 130 will do this week Pendles. Wet conditions will suit Caaaarlton and SC scores will be down. Danger hasn't recovered from Roughead's bump so, it is Fyfe as C on a lovely sunny arvo in Perth tomorrow with Sandilands dominant against a hopeless Bomber ruck.

      Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 13:09

      Leuenburger avg 38.7 hitouts. He's in not Bellchambers this week

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 12:46

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

Timchief · 06/05/2017 at 11:28

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

    BigM · 06/05/2017 at 11:40

    Has to come good doesn't he

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 13:43

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:43

    Looking to bring him in round 9 for witts.

      Timchief · 07/05/2017 at 07:52

      Agreed. No pruess taking centre bounces will help also.

    Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 23:14

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 11:30

I can't decide between EVW or Melican

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 11:41

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

    Temet Nosce · 06/05/2017 at 11:53

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

Alex · 06/05/2017 at 11:40

Goldstein or Stef

    Paul · 06/05/2017 at 12:24

    I would go stef.

Paul · 06/05/2017 at 12:22

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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:22

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

      redgumwon · 06/05/2017 at 13:42

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:45

      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 · 07/05/2017 at 13:16

        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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:31

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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:33

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

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 12:34

    Milera out Knight in for Crows

    Wedge · 06/05/2017 at 16:45

    Hibberd showing as injured in gold supercoach

battlewolf87 · 06/05/2017 at 12:36

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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:47

    No, 2.09 if you wanna shave it that close.

Holty · 06/05/2017 at 12:39

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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:42

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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:08

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

      Wedge · 07/05/2017 at 00:32

      Today was that day. Wonder if anyone took this advice

      Beezneez · 07/05/2017 at 12:37

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:48

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

    derek · 06/05/2017 at 13:06

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:22

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 19:28

        I'd look at jack steven for that price.

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:53

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 12:51

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

    Crow · 06/05/2017 at 12:57

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:45

    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 · 07/05/2017 at 11:44

      Not on the bubble, already had one price rise.

derek · 06/05/2017 at 13:02

this week is going to be ugly.

    Derek · 06/05/2017 at 13:04

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:16

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:21

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 17:00

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

Ben · 06/05/2017 at 13:04

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

    FCAbel · 06/05/2017 at 13:20

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:04

Wells out, Broomhead in for the Pies

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 13:17

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

    Juzzy · 06/05/2017 at 13:47

    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)

Tom · 06/05/2017 at 13:15

Hannam or Barrett on field?

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 13:38

    I'd go Barrett. Beams out might give him some time in the guts

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 13:27

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

    DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 13:29

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

Dogs · 06/05/2017 at 13:33

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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:52

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 13:36

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

Rivo · 06/05/2017 at 13:43

Bullet bitten. Double downgrade:

Parfitt to Parsons;
Newman to EVW.

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

    wightyswarriors · 08/05/2017 at 14:09

    That Parsons trade really worked !!

DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 13:54

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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:48

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

Spanner · 06/05/2017 at 14:02

Taranto's 66 or Butler and Parsons

    LJB · 06/05/2017 at 14:32

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 14:09

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

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 14:13

    And North 44 to 0 Crows!…lol WTF

      Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 14:15


    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 14:15

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

    Beezneez · 06/05/2017 at 17:36

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

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 14:19

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?

    redherringfc · 06/05/2017 at 16:11

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:16

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

The BONT · 06/05/2017 at 14:20

Waite is on 88 at 1st Quarter


    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 14:23

    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_ · 06/05/2017 at 14:32

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

        Beezneez · 06/05/2017 at 17:37

        Hopefully he gets rubbed out for his sling tackle.

Keenbutclueless · 06/05/2017 at 14:25

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 · 06/05/2017 at 14:47

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 · 06/05/2017 at 14:50

    I have no idea what you are on about once again

      wombatsfc · 06/05/2017 at 18:24

      Don't worry Terry your brain will start working when your testes drop

Eskimo · 06/05/2017 at 14:53

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 · 06/05/2017 at 15:19

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

jabba · 06/05/2017 at 15:01

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

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 15:19

    Must be all contested and he going at 100%

Boltons Blues · 06/05/2017 at 15:02

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

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 15:24

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

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 15:27

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 15:23

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_ · 06/05/2017 at 15:32

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

      JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 16:32

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

        Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:54

        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 · 06/05/2017 at 17:06

          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_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:29

            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 · 06/05/2017 at 20:04

              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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:43

    107 from Marchbank is beautiful.

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

DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 15:59

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

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:35

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

    SCdonkey · 06/05/2017 at 16:48

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

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 16:00

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

    Ben · 06/05/2017 at 16:09

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

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 16:10

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

hedski · 06/05/2017 at 16:11

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

Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:12

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

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 16:15

    Yeah never picked him up

      Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:23

      Me too and glad of it…Parsons and Poxy Pendles for

        hedski · 06/05/2017 at 16:48


    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 16:43

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

      Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 17:02

      I have them both. Lol.

Wombatsfc · 06/05/2017 at 16:17

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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:20

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

David · 06/05/2017 at 16:23

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

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 16:59

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

      Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:36

      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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:32

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_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:43

    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 · 06/05/2017 at 16:57

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

        Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 17:06

        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_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:23

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

DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 16:36

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

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 16:49

    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.

One Touch Wonder · 06/05/2017 at 16:39

Jacobs. What a SHARK MOVE. Now watch Pridiss go massive.

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:33

    looking promising for ya

Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 16:43

traded out marchbank… ughh

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 16:50

    That would suck. Know how you feel I traded WHE last week & he scored 125

    Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 15:22

    ouch and same i did WHE last week too but WHE scored shite this week

    CoachDamo · 07/05/2017 at 16:14

    Ouch! I dodged that one – changed my mind and got rid of Otten instead at the last minute. He might score 60 next week and you won't feel so bad.

Boltons Blues · 06/05/2017 at 16:44


    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 16:49

    Well coached today Bolts. Your got Buckley covered. He's hopeless. Timely Marchbank ton. Won't need to worry about him for a few weeks

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 16:50

    Nice win Boltons…things are looking up for the blues this year, good to see the improvement, SPS was awesome..and Marchy

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 16:50

    Didn't get to see Eds head almost explode, would've been hilarious.

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:40

    Well said Smiley. Today your boys showed the pies supporters just how pea hearted 80% of their players are

Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 16:45

Tex and Howe my two POD premiums for a combine total of 85…..


    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 16:52

    Lynden Dunne is killing Howe! Praying Dunne is dropped this week. If he stays in the team Howe will need to be moved on pronto

pod · 06/05/2017 at 16:49

Yo-yo at it again

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 17:26

    He's doing better than Robbie Gray. He's on a grand total of 0 half way through the second Quarter

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 16:50

Marchbank spectacular, Docherty excellent, Pendles VC didn't work out so who do I captain Danger or Bont? Saints next week for the blues hopefully we can give it right to them

marcusproudson · 06/05/2017 at 16:51

Take laird 200 as VC or chance it elsewhere

    Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 16:55

    Chance it

      marcusproudson · 06/05/2017 at 17:17

      Tmitch danger Fyfe. Mmmm

Stupid Coach · 06/05/2017 at 16:53

Put the VC on Pendles and it was massive mistake just like tipping the Pies to win (which I won't be doing again for a long time).

Tossing up between Danger and Fyfe for Captain.


    Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 16:56

    reluctant to say either.. in the same situation myself

    Goat · 06/05/2017 at 17:02

    Danger is overdue but must be injured. I'd go Fyfe against the Bombers…. just my view.

    Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 17:10

    Sneaky feeling Buddy may go berserk but it's a big IF. Not convinced Danger is over his injury and got burnt last week with Fyfe as captain. Tough decisions…

    pod · 06/05/2017 at 17:14

    Danger time. Sunday games are bad luck.

Goat · 06/05/2017 at 17:00

Holding the Petrevski-Seton to Pendles trade didn't hurt as I thought it might ….

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:19

    It has earned you 200 odd Supercoach points and an extra $50K. $35K price increase for Seton and a $15K price decrease for Pendles. Good stuff.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:21

      Sorry, take off about 85 as you dont have Pendles yet.

        Goat · 06/05/2017 at 17:53

        I thought it sounded too good to be true but still good enough. Sometimes the best trades are not as good as they seem. Another week or 2 before Pendles and I tie the knot at this stage.

Frank the Tank · 06/05/2017 at 17:02

Is Trealoar the biggest flop so far of the ultra premiums? 3 sub 75 point games out of 7 so far…..

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:12

    I am not impressed Frank. Put the friggin VC on him and again he has let me down. I am going Fyfe for C tomorrow

    Rick Grimes · 06/05/2017 at 17:13

    Yep, looked disinterested 2nd half. I'd love to dump the pr1ck but there are worse stains to take care of, for now. But I'm sharpening a knife for him.

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 17:18

    Treloar has been terrible. But so are his team mates

      DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:23

      Trelaor in the never again pile
      My pile listed as

      JOM, Sheil now Treloar

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:46

    He's a dead set spud Frank. Sadly I believed the preseason hype and wasted my money. Now I have to waste a trade to get his stench off my team. I might sort through the list of players pieman ruled out during preseason, most of them are starring πŸ™‚

TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:16

Glad I held out on grabbing Pendles this week. The time is next week at around $565K. Now only need to find around $89K to make the upgrade. Now that is what I call a good deal.

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:26

    Yeah madness this week
    I avoided useless vickers weakest trade and opted to whack in Buddy cashing in 30k odd down from Beams
    Then Bowes to Parsons 326k in bank and loving the look of Merrett, Wines and Bont as my final 3 mid prems
    Not touching Pendles tbh

      Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 15:21

      good move with buddy hes on fire son

    Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:49

    Or you could wait until his bye, get him for 400k and score an extra 80 points until then by not having him. he's obviously not up to the standard atmo

      redherringfc · 07/05/2017 at 15:55

      he does have carlton at home in the final round, so if he's looking long term it could pay off. (provided he isn't rested in the final round.)

Goat · 06/05/2017 at 17:18

In defence of Otten and Hampton – their time is just about up. You would hope not with Treloar.

cashcows · 06/05/2017 at 17:33

Bont or Danger for C? Can't seem to split them. Leaning Bont but Danger surely cant do back to back poor scores

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:41

    I would say the Bont cause he's in great form at the moment, and is comfortable at Etihad stadium, whereas Danger is up at Metricon stadium with a hostile crowd, and rumours of him being injured soon as you say "surely", you'll jinx yourself lol

DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:34

20 mins into 2nd quarter and Robbie on 1 pt wtf

    Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 17:40

    having a massive game

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:42

    Yeah right?!..was gonna ask did he get injured?…do you have him David?

      DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:48

      Nah don't have him
      I'm lucky to have Rance, Treloar and Sheils lol

      INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 17:54

      He's not injured. He's just doing what premos seem to do these days

        DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:57


    Paul · 06/05/2017 at 18:08

    Managed to double his score in the last 10 minutes of the quarter. What a gun!

    pod · 06/05/2017 at 18:13

    Hang on he's just hit 5 points, go you good thing

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 17:37

Bont or Danger?

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:39

    I like VC Bont

      Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 17:49

      I would've too but I put it on Pendles πŸ™

        DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:52

        Hmm That's rough then mate
        I reckon Danger then

    Danners · 06/05/2017 at 18:27

    Go outside the box, C on Bont has scored 140 against Richmond the last two times

    Dogs · 06/05/2017 at 18:39

    I just traded Bont into my team, with my luck he's going sub 80 tonight

Mark · 06/05/2017 at 17:38

Thoughts on putting the C on hanners or go Fyfe

TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:43

Robbie Gray 2 SC at half time…………. A cow turd is being deposited at the Adelaide oval.

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 17:48

    He's on 1. You must have the captain on him

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 17:56

      Fanfooty is saying two. I am getting short changed!

    Goat · 06/05/2017 at 17:54

    Thought he must have been injured. Interesting week…

    Derek · 06/05/2017 at 18:57

    no one has him

Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:44

Did anyone get any tips right yet?, I got Saints right, only cause I barrack for them. Did anyone tip North to beat the Crows?

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:50

    I thought that the North could beat them but that first quarter was the softest I have seen Crows in a long long time
    Thoughtless defending kicking out of 50 arc on top of not carrying the ball up which you should do against the wind.

    Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 17:57

    I barrack for them that's why I didn't tip them. Lol

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 18:41

    Looks like I'll be none from four if port lose…

      Dogs · 06/05/2017 at 18:43

      Same here

Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 17:54

I hope Houston- we have a problem and Powell Pooper can lift their output in the second half, pretty shiteful so far.

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 17:56

    Yeah only up side is almost all of us had to field these pricks

James · 06/05/2017 at 17:56

Still have Parfitt to trade out.
Who would be the best option?
Buddy, Bont, Ablett, Heeney, Merrett
Any advice?

    James · 06/05/2017 at 18:08

    Throw Selwood in the mix as well

    Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 18:14

    Wait a week-2 weeks and trade in rocky

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 18:24

    Could probably pick up Robbie Gray for about $17.00

Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 17:57

Captains???? Danger, Fyfe, Neale, Buddy or Martin? Keep changing my mind.

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 18:03

    Danger surely… your call m8
    I'm VC him though incase

      Top Gun · 06/05/2017 at 18:16

      Thanks. Not convinced his ribs are 100% with him wearing a vest.

    Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 15:20

    too late to say buddy. 7 goals at 3 quarter time

hedski · 06/05/2017 at 18:06

I might give up SC and stick to Sunday coach kings, at least I'm constantly ranked about 600th there.

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 18:23

    Lol, that's about the best I've managed to do in that game haha, Supercoach is one big arse-pain this year…it has to get easier soon doesn't it?

    Danners · 06/05/2017 at 18:26

    Might have to join you there hedski, has been a shit of season so far

Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 18:13

C on danger, pray 4 me

Winter · 06/05/2017 at 18:18

Danger or Fyfe captain?

    Danners · 06/05/2017 at 18:25

    Danger since he's playing GCS

H Lee · 06/05/2017 at 18:18

Powell-pepper only 58% TOG, concerning??


    Danners · 06/05/2017 at 18:25

    Did notice that, maybe Port don't want him to get Supercoach points

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 18:45

    He's got no tank yet, will be a beast, only 40 points 3 qtr time, might leave him on bench and play Barrett and Balic unless he does a bit last qtr.

      Touk tuk · 06/05/2017 at 20:28

      Will be a beast no good for this season mate…. im trading him sunday night…

        hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:53

        What rooks are tho?

Dogs · 06/05/2017 at 18:38

Afl app has listed final teams for tonight, so far no late changes for the doggies. Fingers crossed it stays that way and Dahl plays.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 19:22

    Why wouldn't he?

      Dogs · 07/05/2017 at 12:15

      Was rumoured to be a late out with the arm injury late in the last qtr previous game.

Tommy · 06/05/2017 at 18:40

What should take from SPP in order to keep his score? Other player is barrett

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 18:43

    A lot better than 40..he'd need to get a couple of goals from here to post anything decent.

      Tommy · 06/05/2017 at 19:07

      Would you take anything above 60?

        Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 19:12

        No choice for me mate…I'm taking it regardless.

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 18:48

    55-60+ I reckon

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 19:18

    Ended on 60 odd.

Frankily · 06/05/2017 at 18:57

I don't FKN understand how people are saying yeh I'll leave SPP on the bench, how do you have cover??? Are you copping a nank doughy or what???? This was meant to be a round of carnage am I the only one??

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 19:04

    No cover here mate..i'm completely coverless.

    DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 19:19

    I only have 4 outs

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 19:20

    Only place I have cover is mid bench, must play 2 of SPP, Balic and Barrett. 60ish from SPP is awkward…

    Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 19:22

    No cover at all πŸ™

    redherringfc · 06/05/2017 at 19:23

    i have a full mid bench, but no cover anywhere else.

    The benchmark · 07/05/2017 at 07:16

    I have a vickers Willis cover in defence and Barrett cover midfield. 22 trades left

    Dogs · 07/05/2017 at 12:12

    I've got cover in the mids, no where else tho.

Wal · 06/05/2017 at 18:58

Captain Bont or Danger?

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 19:03

    In the same situation, I'm probably going Bont but could go either way

    Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 19:21


    redherringfc · 06/05/2017 at 19:27

    i'm going bont.

    That means he will have a shocker and danger will crack 200.

    If i go danger it will be the other way.

    I've got good form, went Rocky for captain last week for his 53 and bought Sloane (vc) this week for his cracking 80.

KSinny · 06/05/2017 at 19:03

Dusty or Bont as C opponent has Bont as c

    Wal · 06/05/2017 at 19:05


    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 21:05

    Dustin Martin captain looking like a stroke of genius for anyone that risked it

Tim · 06/05/2017 at 19:10

Take SPPs 60 or go Barrett?

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 19:14

    Take it

    SCdonkey · 06/05/2017 at 19:22

    I always take 60+ from a Rookie.

      Wedge · 06/05/2017 at 20:46

      I would say 50+ this year

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:07

    Don't risk it or Barrett could do a Parsons on you!

Jack · 06/05/2017 at 19:12

Elliot Yeo will 100% be a top 6 forward.

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 19:17

    Elliot Yeo is now a major target. With the byes coming, Elliot Yeo would be a perfect inclusion. The guy proved himself today. Brilliant performance. He is the real deal.

      INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 19:20

      Agreed. I've seen enough now. He can do it all

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 19:21

    Might have to bite the bullet and bring him in.

      gator59 · 06/05/2017 at 19:25

      Got him into the side this week… His scores are to hard to ignore

    SCdonkey · 06/05/2017 at 19:26

    Looking to be what Higgo said in the podcast "Yo-Yo does go down, but it doesn't stay down, it gets back up again"

    Cogla13 · 07/05/2017 at 12:00

    Traded Beams to him and put the VC on him. Finally got something right.

    Leeds17 · 07/05/2017 at 12:03

    That second half especially last quarter was amazing from him, real match winning stuff,

    The role of Halfback with a few Centre Boucne attendances suits him to a T.

    That being said it won't be smooth sailing there'll be some down weeks but very happy I brought him in R4 especially as it was him or Miller pulled the right rein for a change.

hedski · 06/05/2017 at 19:22


    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 19:26

    Haha, I've got 2 right so far, Sainters and Eagles..blind luck.

      Touk tuk · 06/05/2017 at 20:25

      0 so far. Haha…… i love footy…haha

        hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:44

        Took the doggies too…..

          hedski · 06/05/2017 at 22:22

          Woo hoo, 1 from 6.

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 19:23

He will come in for Houston and Hampton will be downgraded I'm thinking

INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 19:25

Live by the sword, die by the sword. C on Gary & I'm shitting my pants

    Derek · 06/05/2017 at 20:03

    not a bad call mate. I think he will do ok

      Derek · 06/05/2017 at 20:22

      Put the VC on Selwood myself

        INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 20:34

        Selwood having a cracker Derek

          Derek · 06/05/2017 at 22:12

          He 6 touches in second half

    Cogla13 · 07/05/2017 at 12:01

    Died by the sword.

      INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 14:55

      He sure did

Kev · 06/05/2017 at 19:29

Ouch. Instead of Beams for Yeo I went beams for dingleberry which gave me 4 spudpies. Treloar has to go he's an overrated seagull who can't kick or handball. WHE has a heart the size of the average pies supporters brain and, not very dependleberry will struggle to be a top 10 mid based on his efforts so far this year. Adams is the only SC winner at the club. Maybe Taylor is the new cornboy?

    Tiger · 07/05/2017 at 09:34

    Agree Kev but a least whe didn't cost as much as Treloar and I really hate saying this dependleberry ?????????

    Brian · 07/05/2017 at 11:04

    I reckon Pendles will loose interest in this season when his baby is born. They won't be competing for finals.
    And yes trelor is a giant turd in my jocks also.

JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 19:46

In hindsight I completely stuffed up my trades this week.I was going to move Nank to the fwds and bring in Ryder,but I decided in my wisdom to take the donut because I would only be missing out on 80pts or so,not the 139 he scored and wanted to bring in the cash generation rookies while they were there.Next time I just need to go with my gut feeling and not think about it too much.

    wightyswarriors · 07/05/2017 at 12:51

    Feel for you…..I actually did it !!! And the good bit is it meant I couldn't get Parsons as I went Beams to Pendles instead.

      JohndJames · 07/05/2017 at 13:24

      Good on you wightyswarriors,you did what I should have,I even advised some people to do just that,but then,after reading how Ryder wasn't a keeper,and so on I changed my mind and went with cash generation and traded in Parsons instead of Ryder,so now I have another dud rookie to deal with,would have to be the biggest mistake I've ever made in SC.

    Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 14:25

    ouch. my mate traded out darcy cameron in the forward line for Parsons by mistake and in doing so trapped nankervis in his rucks (with witts and sandilands)

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 19:56

Butler is my saviour

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:06

    Hopefully he can keep it up, started like a house on fire last week then spudded it.
    Watching cats game so dont how he's going besides qtr time sc check.

      Tommo09 · 06/05/2017 at 21:04

      He's on 41 in the 3rd
      Completely stopped

Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 19:56

come on tigessss

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 20:10

Traded out Butler over Houston πŸ™

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 20:34

    I kept both.
    And both should at some stage hit 350k

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 20:16

Most of us chose Parsons over Black right?

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 20:28

    Typical..the way this week's going, FUBAR!

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 20:29

    Yep. I did.

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:45

    YES. Bloody crap week/year.

    redherringfc · 06/05/2017 at 20:47


    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 20:48

    Barely better than a donut. And another shit stain left in our teams!

    Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 14:22

    went melican instead for Newman and put in Stranadica for Butler to swing nank into the forward line next week… looks like Witts can stay after this weeks effort…. i had always intended to trade him out. these midpriced rucks and ruck forwards are the go this year

Tommo09 · 06/05/2017 at 20:25

Danger feel free to get a good score
Need a big second half from you to save my week
Go and score a 200 like last year

    Tommo09 · 06/05/2017 at 21:27

    Finish it off Danger

DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 20:33

no one screaming "VC loop at the moment"

    Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 21:32

    that's because I vc'ed Tex and he scored a grand total of 24 points

TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 20:36

Looks like Parsons will be playing next week. In the VFL

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:46

    Looked great for the first 5 minutes.

    INPieman · 06/05/2017 at 20:50

    If he's lucky. South Barwon more likely

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:40

    Parsons Nose…what a FKN spuuuuuud, dammit rookies bloody suck this year.

      hedski · 06/05/2017 at 22:13

      Might trade him to Black next week.

    Leeds17 · 07/05/2017 at 08:37

    Scott likes him and he doesn't drop his favs.

Ja191 · 06/05/2017 at 20:48

JOM late out with a knee, sounds about right

hedski · 06/05/2017 at 20:50

Loving the way Zac the leprechaun is quietly going about his business, not me, I'm screaming at the cats with my headphones in, scaring the kids.

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 21:14

Traded out Butler for Parsons, captained Bont over Danger, goodnight everybody

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 21:17

    Don't worry Bont is lifting very well, still Parsons is staining the pants right now

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:21

    Have faith in the Bont Josh, he's a good finisher…usually, hope he has a massive last quarter.

Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:19

Gazza 27 disposals only 4 contested and 8 Clangers, has killed his score, only 49 points.

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 21:31

    Keeps his price cheap for two weeks time.

      Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:33

      Yeah true…copped a heavy knock to his shoulder though so we'll have to keep an eye on that.

#freekickbulldogs · 06/05/2017 at 21:19


SCdonkey · 06/05/2017 at 21:37

Don't mind Pendle only scored 91 this week, im just glad i stuck to getting him in than getting any rookies on the bubble this week. I just had a gut feeling they weren't worth bringing in. Apart from Black which majority of coaches ignored him.

At least now i only 1 more premo to bring in the midfield, but i have a massive stain in the midfield damn bloody trealor.

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:04

    Pendles' 91 not a disaster, and you really dodged a bullet avoiding the Parson's Nose, a Chicken's Arse could've played better than that tonight.

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 21:48

Any Geelong fans, who might come in for Parsons if he gets omitted next week?

    Matze · 06/05/2017 at 21:55

    McCarthy if fit? Menegola should keep his spot so maybe just Henderson comes back in and reshuffle the structure. Not many others come to mind that quickly…

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 22:19

    My Nana would go better than half the cats.

    Keenbutclueless · 06/05/2017 at 23:18

    Scooter Selwood

      Temet Nosce · 07/05/2017 at 11:44

      Agree clue, scooter is due and if he stays fit will play out the year. Should help dangerwoods output as well because he plays a great sacrificial game screening for guns.

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:28

    my 16 year old tabby but he s got crook legs not reliable and not much tank

    BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2017 at 10:09

    I think they will persist with Parsons, Scott loves him. Brought him straight back in over Menegola (only played due to late inclusion) and Stewart.

      hedski · 07/05/2017 at 10:10

      Jordan "ChickenHawk" Murdoch should be dropped, bloody terrible, turnover king.

    Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 14:43

    Bill Brownless.
    Hopefully one off and he's back to 60s for a few weeks

Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 21:55

Onya Bonty Boy!…what a finisher, awesome πŸ™‚

    JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 22:08

    I was very worried at half time,then I thought he usually has a big second half,so he could at least get Adams score,but he did even better,boy did I need that after having Parsons on the field.

      DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 22:11

      Same here Parsons score padded by me others
      Dahl, Macrae, JJ, Rance and Danger

        Derek · 06/05/2017 at 22:13

        Macrae was 22 half time. Had a 99pt second half

          DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 22:19

          Gun player

          FCAbel · 07/05/2017 at 01:09

          Waiting to pick.him up cheap is proving to be a poor approach on my behalf

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:25

    I think Bont was only 79 or something very average at 3/4 time wasn't he? He's a great last quarter player.

    Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 14:44

    Drives me insane. Keep going Yay this is the week to bring him in and he pumps out a massive second half. And I'm a Richmond supporter

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 22:06

Bont captain, Dahl and Macrae great work. Dusty another low 90's score. What do we think about him right now? I thought he played an 100 ish worthy game.

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 22:10

    Martin is fine

    Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 09:32

    It's more about his efficiency. Was great to watch him and Bont play on each other for some stages of the game.

TOPHAWK1 · 06/05/2017 at 22:11

Parsons just did a Jarrod Berry.

    Derek · 06/05/2017 at 22:15

    I thought I was so clever getting Parsons instead of EVW

      Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:27

      How do you call it though?…he was averaging 64 from his first 2 games, and then deals up that rubbish, makes you wanna tear your hair out.

    DavidSA · 06/05/2017 at 22:15

    Parsons is Latin for pass on
    Think we all could not decipher the warning

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 22:17

    Thinking I might just sideways trade chasing points now til I run out of Bang Bangs.
    Won't get 1900 this week.

    Rocksta · 06/05/2017 at 22:39

    I'm done with these Rookies.
    I had to trade Eddy out for Parsons to avoid a Donut. Problem is, I just brough in another problem 'Spud' I need to deal wirh.
    Almost impossible to get to full Premo this year wirh these Spud Rookies and under achieving Keepers.
    Hardest year I've played to date ( 6 Years in)

Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 22:18

skipper bont saved my weekend. If Tex and Howe didn't have absolute shockers I would be on track for a very good score this week.

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:23

    Big gamble on Tex Finnius, maybe you could cash him in for Yeo Yeo man, never thought I'd say that !

      Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 22:53

      to be honest mate I am still pretty happy with having tex. He is just like any key forward – will have huge and small weeks. He is a good POD who will kick me up in the rankings when he has a good game. Am bringing in Yeo for butler and Hampton this week.

Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 22:20

Traded in Parsons over Black because of JS worries on Black. Guessing that's no longer an issue for Black and it's shifted over to Parsons

    Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 22:39

    The community talked me out of black
    The community talked me into pendles
    The community tried to talk me out of Franklin but now I know that the community is cursing me this week after a good first few weeks

The BONT · 06/05/2017 at 22:30

VC was on Bont but no one on bench that hasn't played WTF

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:31


    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:37

    Who have you got left to play Bont…anyone decent?

    JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 23:18

    You don't have Beams ?

Tyruddanaut · 06/05/2017 at 22:41

What's everyone en route for
I am just going above 2000

    Russty_ · 06/05/2017 at 22:46

    2100 assuming my last 6 guys tonne up, which is highly unlikely lol

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 22:52

    On track for 2100, need Fyfe, Sandi, Hanners and JPK to ton up though

    Iamme · 06/05/2017 at 22:57

    15/1430 (c) on Rocky hoping for 2100 – 2200…. I also have Fyfe, Sandi, Tmich, Hardwick, Barrett, Newman (if he is a late in)otherwise I got Hampton 47 on the bench….By the looks of the scoring in my league's it seems like a good score this week?

    Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 23:09

    about 2050

    JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 23:30

    This will be my first score under 2000,looking at around 1850 if I'm lucky.

    hedski · 06/05/2017 at 23:47

    1236 with 7 to go, Stef, Barrett, Fyfe, Sandi, Balic, Buddy and Parker. Could take SPP's 60 for one of Balic/Barrett but what's the point??
    I thought last week was bad.

    KSinny · 07/05/2017 at 08:32

    1317/13 C with 9

    BlueNath · 07/05/2017 at 08:53

    I doubled down this week (and the previous) and expected to be lowish. But heading for a score of around 1900 πŸ™ but I have a war chest of cash for the next few weeks. Will be bringing in 4 premos. So I'm hoping I'll charge back into the top 1000

DefyingMadness · 06/05/2017 at 22:43

We should take Dangers score right?

    Joshua · 06/05/2017 at 22:52


    Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 23:10

    115+ is my general rule of thumb – but with the unpredictability of the players this year I would take it. You may lose 30 points but you safely rule out losing 50 to fyfe spudding it again

Finnius123 · 06/05/2017 at 23:18

anyone thinking of holding Witts after his bye as a decent scorer during the bye rounds?

    davo · 06/05/2017 at 23:41

    might have to I think, not much else to rely on, I will be able to downgrade to Grundy shortly

    Leeds17 · 07/05/2017 at 08:31

    Tempted… Won't play Geelong's rabble rucks stocks everyweek though

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:27

    been good all year The nankilands/witts option has worked well

      Tiger · 07/05/2017 at 09:46

      100% right there, very happy with this setup myself. Best decision I've made this year. And the way things are going might leave it that way ?

    Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 09:37

    Depends on cash build up which is tough this year. Might be a keeper which i doubted early on.

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 09:58

    i don't have him, but if I did I would look at holding him and playing the Nank as a swinging R2/F6.

    Suns have all Saturday games except for round 23. Richmond have a lot of Sunday games.

    Set up with Witts at R3 with E. if he plays well swing Nank forward, if poor keep Nank at R2.

    Will need a reasonable M9/F7 swinger as well.

    Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 14:46

    Was thinking of trading to McEvoy this week. Luckily didn't. Stef Martin will come down a lot in price as an upgrade. Also looking at Ryder and lots of loopholing between Nank Ryder Witts and Strd. Ryder has a good next few weeks

davo · 06/05/2017 at 23:47

Great result from double downgrade, Parsons 19 and VW 35 for a helpful total of 54 thinking I'm out of the running for 50k

    JohndJames · 06/05/2017 at 23:59

    We might as well of saved our trades.

    Juzzy · 07/05/2017 at 00:38

    Same here Mate.

    Both on field. Been a bugger of a week.

    The Stare · 07/05/2017 at 01:31

    So Long Suckers

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 07:30

    It makes Menapoo look good

      Tiger · 07/05/2017 at 09:48

      Haha your so right . You made me chuckle whilst having my breakfast this morning.

    BlueNath · 07/05/2017 at 09:08

    It's only 1 week. Let's hope they come good and average 40 lol. But seriously, upgrading from that cash you generated will be so sweet next week. Unless the SC gods have real fun and take down said premo early with a long term injury. Sorry for being negative, it's how SC is making me feel at the moment.

Sam · 07/05/2017 at 00:17

Take SPP's 60 or go with Barrett?

    The Stare · 07/05/2017 at 01:24

    Barrett dude

    Leeds17 · 07/05/2017 at 08:19

    I've gone Barrett in same situation.

    BlueNath · 07/05/2017 at 08:57

    Barret. What could go wrong? I'm in the same position and backing Barret in. But then again, I'm having a shocker this weekend.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 15:55

    Take Barrett's 60 instead lol

bUCKET__ · 07/05/2017 at 00:53

My only hope for this round is that Jaeger can start to find some form

So I guess I'm drinking, who's with me?

    The Stare · 07/05/2017 at 01:25

    Jeager Bombs dude

    Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 07:44

    rumors he's a late out with a knee, sounds about right

    Charlie · 07/05/2017 at 07:57

    He got rested i reckon

Tech Head · 07/05/2017 at 01:30

Technical Query. i have two emergencies on my midfield line. if one has a doughnut. Will i get the score from the other emergency? or will i get the doughnut? Need my loophole.

    Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 01:47

    yes you will get the non-zero score

      BlueNath · 07/05/2017 at 09:13

      Unless the 0 was the players score after playing! But assuming the 0 was because they didn't play, then Finnius is correct

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:19

    wow not one but two congrats most had none anywhere

Don't Blush Baby · 07/05/2017 at 06:22

Who do I put the C on ,Fyfe, Mitchell or Martin ? – currently have it on Fyfe ?

    Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 07:43

    your pretty safe with fyfe/titch – martin's playing Sydney so should get smashed but then again it's Sydney.

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 07:52

    I'm sticking with Fyfe. Playing st home gives him the nod.

    Had VC on Selwood, he was 70 at half time, what happened to him in second half, was he injured, tagged? Didn't watch game.

      Don't Blush Baby · 07/05/2017 at 08:01

      We'll ride Fyfe together then Derek , no whip rules either

      Derek · 07/05/2017 at 08:04

      Read that Selwood rolled his ankle.

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:17

    JPK gotta come good but Fyfe s the safe one

    hedski · 07/05/2017 at 09:36

    Stick it on Hannan DBB, give me a chance, (maggi time league)

      Don't Blush Baby · 07/05/2017 at 11:03

      Sorry Dion, I have 4 Cash Leagues that I prioritise,good luck for the rest of season mate

        hedski · 07/05/2017 at 11:10

        Ha ha, I have 3, same priorities bud, good luck.

Derek · 07/05/2017 at 07:49

Oh dear. Most of my leagues are going to be close. It's going to come down to Berry!

With Newman, Stewart and McGrath all missing, Berry has been thrown in to the field. Is a big POD as none of my opponents have him. Go you good thing!

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 09:01

    Hehehehe. Who would have thought it two weeks ago. Berry was on the canvas and down for the count. But here he is today on the cusp of winning all your leagues. Another 60 odd and he will be worth his weight in gold!

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:15

    I think he is better than ok and with DPP could be better than myers

Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 08:06

Good new swallow scored well. Bad new he's sitting on the bench with no E on him

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 08:19

    I'm impressed you have players on your bench

neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:13

everyone bagged me about Parsons now look Geelong gets these types often Stewart the pod to name ok but ===Yeo now becomes an immediate target

Saundo · 07/05/2017 at 09:26

JPK, Fyfe or Zerrett as C ?

    Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 09:45

    prob fyfe, I feel like sydney are going to get smashed

      Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 10:20

      I partly hope they do considering the Lions are at $8.00

Derek · 07/05/2017 at 09:33

does anyone know how far Rampe is from playing?

Was listed as 5 weeks when he got hurt, 5 weeks ago.

    Tiger · 07/05/2017 at 09:53

    Yeah was wondering the same thing as was thinking trading Newman for Melican.

      Derek · 07/05/2017 at 10:01

      Rampe will change the whole team structure, especially with McVeigh back as well.

        One Touch Wonder · 07/05/2017 at 10:01

        Swans have him listed as 3 weeks

          Wedge · 07/05/2017 at 11:01

          I remember mark lecras playing in that arm guard only a few weeks after breaking his arm. He needs to give rampe a phone call

neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 09:39

Had to take Mittens to the vet last night good news though they didn't put Mittens down. hes 16 cant run and sleeps a lot was just thinking might change his name

    Goat · 07/05/2017 at 10:54

    more satisfying than a rage trade

    Goat · 07/05/2017 at 11:20

    Parsons springs to mind. Or Eddy if you really think he's just occupying time and space and giving nothing back.

    Tibor · 08/05/2017 at 10:14


Jacob · 07/05/2017 at 10:04

I miss McDonald-Tippawuti!!! Will there ever again be a 102k FWD/BACK who plays every week and scores consistent 70's. Throw in 2 more F/B rookies (Brown & Adams) for flexibility. Above all he was a delight to watch and cheer for. Those were the days….

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 10:07

    great comment I had all three and enjoyed the year unlike this crap Parsons eddy evw goes on

    Wedge · 07/05/2017 at 10:46

    Darcy byrne jones went alright too

Declan · 07/05/2017 at 10:16

Do I take Dangerfield 110 or put C on Buddy?

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 10:19

    If you want to be safe choose Danger. But considering how screwed I am this round I'm going to take the risk with buddy

Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 10:22

The lions are $8.00 odds against a team that hasn't won a game even against Carlton and Collingwood. These betting companies should have someone fired

    Wedge · 07/05/2017 at 10:38

    Swans $1.09 no one could be that crazy

Benschke · 07/05/2017 at 11:00

Glad I spent over $1.2m yesterday & traded in Sloan & Pendlebury

    davo · 07/05/2017 at 12:05

    It's tough, you would expect instant rewards for that sought of spend, though am sure they will come. Next week I am doing cheap upgrades to Cripps & Shaw with no guarantees

Jess · 07/05/2017 at 11:15

Rockliff or Tmitch as Captain?

    Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 12:23

    I'm going Rocky as has the ability to go really large even if his team suffer huge losses.

    SCdonkey · 07/05/2017 at 12:48

    I'd gamble on Rocky has a high ceiling like what lamme said can go large at time, but he can also have an off day. Titch will give you that 110 to 140 might be the safest way to go.

Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 11:36

Kennedy, Hibberd, Titch + 98
Frankin, Zorko, Titch (C)
Projection has me losing by 10 points (I'm up top)
Pray for me lads

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:41

    I hope you put it on Buddy mate!

The benchmark · 07/05/2017 at 11:52

3 weeks ago I wouldn't even consider taking a 110 vc
Wow times have changed.
Outcome has to be stick with my guns and leave the 110 in the kitty
Looking at Kennedy franklin or Fyfe
20 degrees in Sydney today and Sydney win will see good points get allocated to the swans
Cmon franklin big day out. Been dropping a few sodas lately so from what I've seen he is in form

    The benchmark · 07/05/2017 at 14:27

    90 at half time
    I'm glad I have big balls

      Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:42

      What I've seen around is those who didn't choose Buddy as captain are crying and those who did are laughing.

Don't Blush Baby · 07/05/2017 at 11:54

Allir Allir out,Marsh in for todays game – I wish horse would have put Newman in

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 12:21

    horse just doesn't like him that's why I got rid of him

      FUJL · 07/05/2017 at 12:40

      Another Titch Leave Now Newman

Jono · 07/05/2017 at 12:23

Is Newman to Berry worth the trade? Do people think Newman will play again? Berry dpp will be handy. Thanks

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 13:01

    Dropped twice in 3 weeks. That's not good. I'd say his next trade will be from the swans to another team

Hawks · 07/05/2017 at 12:31

I think I'm going to do this community a service, and publish my trades each week.

The trick will be, don't trade out the guys I do.

Traded Hoskins-Elliott – TON, traded Marchbank -TON

Thinking of trading Otten next week, so stick with him.

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 13:09

    Could you trade Hampton Pickett Eddy Preuss Mountford parsons Newman & Stewart. Appreciated

Tiger · 07/05/2017 at 12:33

Newman to Melican or Berry? Melican probably only safe until Rampe comes back in 3 weeks ( makes money) and Berry appears to be favoured to be picked each week ( warm bench cover)

    Bells E Bubb · 07/05/2017 at 17:38

    Swans are pretty happy with Melican. Though a good chance to drop back to rookie list status, equally as likely to take Grundy's spot if Syd lose next week and finals are gone. Dilemma of the month.
    If its any help I brought him in, so he's certain to lose his spot. Just played third game tho, so you missed a big price rise.

wightyswarriors · 07/05/2017 at 12:46

Fascinating to read these comments looking back. Nank did me a huge favour…….brought in Ryder as dpp and benched Nank up forward. Now got two rucks for each bye round with Sandi. Also, Nank saved me from getting Parsons. Had cover for Newman.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:40

    I'm glad you had the guts to get Ryder. Let's hope he gets that every week now

SEL · 07/05/2017 at 12:52

VC on Danger, had C on Fyfe all round, but have put it on Hanners,OP and all,Sunday madness but oh well
Got Ryder in this round so that worked good

tom · 07/05/2017 at 13:05

Should I take Danger's score as skipper or roll the dice on Fyfe

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 13:14

    In the current landscape I'd take it

      Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:39

      I completely agree! 2 Rounds of absolute carnage before round 7, and premiums not scoring as well as most of them should this week means that we should probably lower our expectations to 110 on the big C.

POD · 07/05/2017 at 13:05

Thoughts on Koby Stevens on 467k and playing the Mid Forward role at Stk (Supercoach friendly) last 2 games: 117SC for 28 disposals and 2 goals meaning about 97 without the goals and 97SC with 28 disposals meaning goals are a bonus, gonna be my POD what do you think community, unlike matera who needs to kick 6 goals to get to the ton. (History last 7 seasons: 25,33,68,66,86,86,102 (Current) His in his prime 25 years old. I need to win some league games and his my man.

    POD · 07/05/2017 at 13:06

    107 sorry

    Hawks · 07/05/2017 at 13:10

    Could do a lot worse.

    Koby seems to have settled-in well in the St.Kilda team, like his role.

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 13:12

    Heard Richo being interviewed on SEN yesterday. He loves koby Stevens

    tom · 07/05/2017 at 13:19

    Might miss a week with the sling tackle.

      Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 14:40

      Honestly if he misses a week or more cause of that tackle, the game is a joke, the MRP is a joke, what a tackle that was, locked up his arms, slammed him into the ground, exactly how youre taught at junior level.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:37

    I have found prime is around 26… so he'll be even better when his birthday comes around in June

tom · 07/05/2017 at 13:18

I think he does. Scott loves him. Half of the Geelong team didn't show up last night. Wasn't the only one.

    Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 13:25

    we can only hope

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 13:33

I am bringing in Heeney next week. Was in my team all preseason, I have seen enough now

    Don't Blush Baby · 07/05/2017 at 13:45


    Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 14:05

    he is killing it

    Swans2012 · 07/05/2017 at 14:25

    Yep is looking like the missing link in this swan team, will be scary good next year

BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2017 at 13:53

JOM out if anyone held him.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 14:33

    Glad I got rid of him a few weeks ago, that experiment just didn't work out, he goes on the 'never again' list.

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 14:41

    He is the Brad Crouch of last year

Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 14:07

great call skippering buddy DavidSA!!

DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 14:12

Franklin I love you!
Predicted you would get 15+ plus touches and 6+ goals my captain
8 touches 4 goals mid 2nd quarter giong huge!!!

    Swans2012 · 07/05/2017 at 14:22

    90 half time, well played, after last week I didn't have the testicular fortification to walk away from dangers 110…..

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 14:32

    Gutsy call David, hope he goes huge for ya

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:35

    Haha. The community tried to shy me away from him but I stayed true. Lets hope he kicks another 5

    Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 17:23

    Fking said Buddy would have a big one to the community and then I second guess myself and the ultimate sin happens as I took the C off him at 11,00am this morning… Lol. Hoping Neale can get the job done.

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 14:16

Berry you gun, happy I brought you in

Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 14:18

buddy is going off

    FUJL · 07/05/2017 at 14:25

    90 sc half time 5.2 Go Buddy Just remember you need to beat 13.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 14:34

    Put the big C on him this week. Someone must've seen how bad my SC was and gave him a little something before the game

Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 14:36

I think too many of us were thinking about cash generation, but that seems to be a farce this year, with most of the rooks being fool's gold, better off just going for guys you can afford who can score points.
I'm sick of wasting trades on all these duds!

    JohndJames · 07/05/2017 at 14:49

    Well said Russty,I think Jock should copy and paste your comment to the top of the rookie scout report as a warning.Barron Von Crow does a top job mind you.

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 15:00

    Agreed Rusty. I'm sick of these spud rookies!!! And wasting trades

Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 14:51

Don't have him but do have Zac Jones so can't complain

hixon666 · 07/05/2017 at 14:59

Newman out

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 15:37

    I agree…. noooooooo

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 15:12

Heeney vs Franklin will be a touch choice this week

Rabbits16 · 07/05/2017 at 15:22

is selwood injured?

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 15:28

Lift JPK, Hanners keep on going

Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 15:35

Lift Franklin

    Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 15:38

    I know right, 3 points. WTF buddy kick some goals

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 15:46

    Greedyguts! lol

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 15:47

    There ya go!…one on the siren haha…huge!

Winter · 07/05/2017 at 15:42

Could we say that Rocky is a solid pick and safe option for the rest of the season or are we not forgiving him for his previous injuries and history of burning us

    Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 15:52

    yeah was gonna bring him in next week.. why'd he have to score 150 >.>

    Kyle · 07/05/2017 at 16:58

    I saw him as a great option and was almost no risk of injury at the start of the year. When he does get injured its usually for going in hard at the ball. No different to sloane imo. Has been a huge pick this year.

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 15:58

JPK aint making me happy with his scores as of late.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 16:02

    Yeah same here…but I think I have to hold, just too many other issues to deal with.

    Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 17:25

    Ditto. He is usually so consistent and a beast.

Andrew · 07/05/2017 at 15:59

Couldn't get rid of JOM this week and have been burnt, will cost me a league win – operation get Rocky commences for next week, was always my plan but a shame he didn't score 50 points less to become even cheaper…

    DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 16:10

    Pay the price for pts
    How u getting full premo paying 600k 650k for ins?

FiL · 07/05/2017 at 16:00

Wow. Glad I went Parfitt down to Parsons instead of up to Buddy.
All because of Buddy's bye round. Ugh

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 16:06

    Parsons will come good and start knocking our regular good scores, and won't be dropped, and Buddy is over rated….nah just kidding πŸ˜‰

CoachDamo · 07/05/2017 at 16:05

So far every match this round has been won by the team that was LOWER on the ladder.

If Hawthorn and Fremantle win that will be all of them. I can't imagine that happens very often (if ever)!

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 16:36

Its a happy Sunday for a change! Thought I would never see the day. (So far…..and touch wood)

Buddy 160, Hannebery 118, S Martin 93, and the two rookies Barrett and Berry 60 a piece.

Barrett and Berry are becoming very important rookies IMO. Berry has turned from a steaming turd to my team's golden boy in the space of two weeks. I knew you were a good boy.

Now lets hope Fyfe (C) can hold up his end of the bargain and I should end up with a respectable 2100 this week. Welcome

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 16:48

    Yeah any cover is good cover this season, hope Fyfe goes large for you..he'd need to touch it first though lol, good luck to you for a decent score this week.

    BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2017 at 17:00

    Fyfe doing nothing

Gav · 07/05/2017 at 16:49

Cant get the captain or vc right this year. Havent gad a captains score over 95 for the past 4 weeks. Lucks not running my way.

Kyle · 07/05/2017 at 17:01

I had the C on rocky. Before the sydney v lions game i wasnt even projected to make 2k. Now im looking at about 2150. Definately made my week

Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 17:11

Was travelling well till Fyfe for captain.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 17:15

    Early days mate, I reckon he'll ton up.

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 17:19

Who wins. (Me) 240 points +Sandilands or Oliver and (C) Neale?

    Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 17:26

    You easily

      jwill2bong · 07/05/2017 at 18:11

      wouldnt say easily, you wouldnt want Neale to go sub 120

        jabba · 07/05/2017 at 18:11


        Top Gun · 07/05/2017 at 18:17

        Didnt see the C; will be close now.

Bells E Bubb · 07/05/2017 at 17:48

I'm shite at this SC thing. Can't pick a Cap, or a midprice gamble.
I'll be lucky to clear 2050 this week.
It could be worse, might be a Lions supporter.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:24

    I was looking at sun 1900 until the Sydney/Lions game and now I'm going for 2100

Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 17:53

Good one Roughead, now you bloody do something!

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:22

    "Hold your premiums/Roughy" is my new motto

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 18:32

      Good motto!..I looked back and realized I traded him out for Fisher…doh

        JohndJames · 07/05/2017 at 19:27

        Same,sums up my trading lately.

INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 17:56

Balic on 10 at HT. Looking to emulate Parsons! Crap

    DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 17:58

    Bloody sick of this season
    Just gonna bring mid pricers and call it full premo
    So sick of it!!!

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 18:05

      Yep, Cash cows are crap…many premos are crap, midpriced madness is the order of the day I reckon. Rookies are just a waste of trades and money..even the so-called 'good' ones.

      Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:20

      Ty Vickery, Daisy Thomas and James Frawley welcome to my team

DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 17:57

Balic over Barrett not paying off :/

DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 18:00

Cookie cutter teams getting smashed in rank this year

    redherringfc · 07/05/2017 at 18:46

    What's your team name david? I'd like to see what i'm doing wrong.

      DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 19:29

      Oh mate my team not flying well at all
      Name is Crimson Lobstar

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 18:01

Was so close to putting Zerret as captain but played it safe with Dangers score, oh well what can you do

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:19

    You can risk it for the biscuit

Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 18:04

Who still has Roughead? Who is thinking of trading him back in πŸ™‚

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:18

    Still got the legend

    finnigin · 07/05/2017 at 20:02

    never weaken mate , even though i want him to blow the house down, i traded him out , had too

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 18:06

Fyfe is crapping all over my SC score right now. Fyfe is playing like he has already signed that contract with the saints. Little pr-ick better show something in the second half. Otherwise 2000 will be a pipedream.

    Frank the Tank · 07/05/2017 at 18:16

    Cookie cutter? I was ranked 62 overall 2 weeks ago

      Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 18:21

      *Most cookie cutter teams

      DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 19:33

      Yeah not pointing you out Frank
      Just meant what I said in regards to popular premo's this season have been quit poor

hedski · 07/05/2017 at 18:06

Shark move in coach kings, Fyfe out for Hill, McCarthy out for Kerstan, revving up BJ.
Not sure if its a shark move, I suck at fantasy footy in all formats.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 18:10

    Hahaha, I traded fyfe out too, and then he kicks a goal immediately after…I suck at Coachkings more than anyone in the world lol

      hedski · 07/05/2017 at 18:47

      Seen that, was hoping if I dumped Fyfe in CK it would improve his SC output for me.
      Moved from 135th at half time to 96th 3qtr time. Should have revved up Hill, hardly seen BJ the sooky prick.

Derek · 07/05/2017 at 18:30

I'm up against Higgo this week.

He is 61 ahead and has Fyfe + McCarthy. I have Fyfe as C.

Come on Fyfe!

    Derek · 07/05/2017 at 18:31

    Fyfe needs to beat McCarthy by 62

      Derek · 07/05/2017 at 18:43

      fyfe 42 ahead at 3/4 time.

        Derek · 07/05/2017 at 19:07

        Nooooo. Two goals to Cam

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 18:43

    Fyfe is coming!! Bloody lifted after blasting him at half time. 45 SC points in the third quarter. Up to 76 now. Still some work to do but at least a major C disaster avoided. Hopefully can clear 100 from here.

      Derek · 07/05/2017 at 19:16

      I needed 165 between Fyfe and Balic. Lost that one as well

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 18:46

149 up with Sandi on 72 and opponents captain Neale on 95. Not looking too good I think

Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 18:54

Very happy with loopholing parsons as a rookie with Strnadca (nank in ruck). Managed to get Hannan on field for a total of 34 points! Very glad I backed SPP over Balic as well.

Honestly these rookies suck.

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 19:01

Need Merret and Balic to get 170 in total for my league win. Gonna be close

TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/05/2017 at 19:06

Took an absolute pasting this weekend.
Was expecting a low one but not that low.
Two donuts and parsons, EVW and Hannan on ground
Time to erase that one from the memory bank.
As cash gen so hard brought in parsons and EVW this week liked they had the Rd 12 bye.
Upside $800k bank. So hoping short term pain for long term gain.
So next 3 weeks will be bringing in:
Doc, McCrae, Pendles, YEO and Rocky or Sloane.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 19:13

    Oh damn… I'm so sorry. At least you have 800k though

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 19:34

    Hi Trigger, despite your lousy round, you have the cash in the bank and can look forward to a nice little shopping spree this week. I have a measly $50K. One down and one up for me this week.

    I ended up with around 2050 this week. I dodged a massive bullet with Fyfe as captain today. At half time I thought I was cooked. He eeked out 200 which I will happily take.

    With the byes coming up I will YEOWIE and Pendle hunting. Yeo is the real deal and is a must get and Pendles price will not rise for the next couple of weeks.

    Hopefully some blue skies ahead. Cheers mate

      Benschke · 07/05/2017 at 19:40

      I went on a shopping spree this week & brought in Pendles & Sloane. They go well with Kennedy, Treloar & Fyfe & all the remaining under-performing spuds in my team.

      Plus i dumped Ryder a couple of weeks ago

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/05/2017 at 20:02

      Got to the point I just had to laugh at the end hawk.
      Every time I checked a score at the end of a game esp a rookie it was woeful.
      Did any recent rookie score over 60?
      Perfect timing for Marchbank to crack the ton take him up to at least his bye.
      SPS wow. Kids got some tricks
      absolute monty for rising star
      Bloody late out and Newman still didn't get a gig.
      Hampton -. Doc as soon as this week opens
      not sure who to bring him in fwd line
      McCrae is just so consistent but YEO is on some kinda run.and has a bigger ceiling. Nice problem to have I guess
      Should wash off some of the stench of Rd 7.
      must be something about Rd 7. Think I had a $3M bench last year more holes than swiss cheese.
      Do you think next year they can skip Rd 7 in the fixture? πŸ™‚

        neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 20:24

        congrats trig still a long way out yet.The Bont looks a must have … too many newman types got to cull now and Pendles /yeo top of list cheers

        Blaknight · 07/05/2017 at 21:34

        Hardwick went 74. Had a 77 lastweek. 70avg with a BE of -12 and so far given me $100k+. Nice little rookie pod. Only 4% ownership.

LetsGo · 07/05/2017 at 19:19

What's par looking like this week? Been an absolutely shitful one for me

    DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 19:44

    Par would be high 1900's

Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 19:20

Finished on 2030. Looking around I reckon that is just about par. How did everyone else fair? I reckon it would have been huge for a few and terrible for others.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 19:23

    2110, really happy about that..lucky enough not to take any doughnuts this week, not many guys in some of my leagues even cracked 2000, so rough week for alot, cheers mate.

    Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 19:24

    2198 thanks to Rocky!

    Tommo09 · 07/05/2017 at 19:25

    Worst week for me in a while
    Below 1800

    I want to delete my team

    JohndJames · 07/05/2017 at 19:38

    1911 for me,first time under 2000,had eight players score over 100,but had a donut and Parsons/Balic on the field.

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 19:23

Scored 2056 and lost by 54 not happy at all.

DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 19:25

2079 before scaling on Freo n Bombers game

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 19:31

1999 probs just under par

hedski · 07/05/2017 at 19:32

2 weeks in a row @1855, fckn sucks.
Worst scores ever excluding byes and I had a full team both weeks. Another 10k drop in rankings coming up.
Only tipped 3 as well.
#hedski can't tip/coach

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 20:26

    must have my team hedski

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 20:42

    Can't recall coaches scores getting worse the further the season goes on. But that's what's happening. It's a shambles. The rookies are rotten & causing serious pain & suffering. We need to boycott them. Meyers went sub 50 today. He's no knight in shining armour

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 20:49

      Totally agree Piepan, boycott all fkn rookies and just go for midprice or cheap scorers/ fallen premos…even left field options like Cam Pederson.
      Glad I didn't end up going Balic this week, went Parson's nose but at least saved myself some cash. Both sucked it.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 20:52

    Hang tough mate, it can only get better from here right?…forget about overall and just think about working your way up the ladders of your leagues with maybe some shark move choices?..:)

    hedski · 07/05/2017 at 20:59

    Cheers lads I'm sure I'm not the only one, team looks good on paper just can't get them to score together, will be aggressive at the trade table (already have been).
    I think your right Russ need a few left field choices but that can come back to snap ya in the clacker too.
    Will stick to the plan and no sideways yet no matter how tempting.

    Kev · 07/05/2017 at 21:36

    It's only round 7 Hedski previous overall winners have been ranked lower than 10,000 at this stage. Hang tough mate and, if you don't see the bloke play with your own eyes don't trade him in.
    I need to dump some round 11 bye players and might go StNick to Waite if he doesn't get rubbed out. A wise head here once wrote that Waite has 6 brilliant games a year from a SC perspective and they're usually within an 8 game window. Nick usually has a crap middle of the season anyway so I shouldn't lose anything.

      hedski · 07/05/2017 at 21:57

      All good Kev, just bloody frustrating, as I said just above I'll stick fat to the plan.
      Wombats got me thinking of the St Nick to Waite move but I'm already bang banging pretty hard.
      Adelaide boys getting the chop this week both have BE's in the 90s, cheers mate.

BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2017 at 19:32

Another poor week. Scores below 1800 around in a few competitive leagues. Some with donuts and others forced to play Parsons/EVW/Hannan/Hampton onfield.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 07/05/2017 at 19:47

    Yep all 6 for me.
    Did score above 1800 thanks to a bont VC.
    This week
    Hampton – Doc
    An performing fwd to Yeo or McCrae. Probably McCrae.
    Next week SPP has his bye so up to Pendles or Rocky.

SCdonkey · 07/05/2017 at 19:43

Balic, Hannan and Hampton were my only headaches out of all my rookies that were playing. The Hibberd experiment didn't work well, had 27 touches gave a few frees, few clangers and more handball to kick ratio. I still see him a valid selection down back, not regretting picking him up.

Trealor on the other hand, is the biggest stain in my side. Hopefully he doesn't stinks it up than it has been until his bye round.

Did ok this round, i think its around par 2040

Dnoyes · 07/05/2017 at 19:48

Ended up with 2050. Probably just above par. Was hoping that Fyfe was going to deliver me a bit more with the captaincy. I had the VC on Buddy last week but made the poor decision to not back him in this week.

Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 19:48

1932 this week πŸ™
So many stains I might put trousers in the bin.
Nanks back next week, so it removes Parsons or Balic from the forward line
Hampton, Otten, Butler and SPP all face the firing squad this week

Babo · 07/05/2017 at 19:50


Top 20% ?

    Neverweaken · 07/05/2017 at 19:54

    Thinking top 20% at least. I got 2046 with Fyfe as C

      Babo · 07/05/2017 at 20:16

      Yeah.. like last week, a 2100 is a great score. Hopefully i can hold my spot ☺

        KSinny · 07/05/2017 at 20:28

        I got 2140 and was top 6% so yeh top 20

    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 20:35

    Top 20% easy

Ja191 · 07/05/2017 at 19:51

iv'e been mugged off by 1 point in my league

finnigin · 07/05/2017 at 19:58

rookies very disappointing , macgrath 90-100 like a premium was mist and the parsons balic project was a little underwhelming, which can be expected in a first yearer, never the less 2115 was like a century in cricket terms , waiting for the gaj after round 9 if he is fit, to save the crud of captain issues

Jack · 07/05/2017 at 19:59

2005 this week.
JPK and Treloar stinking it up in my midfield big time as well as Parsons. Thankfully Nank's back this week.

Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 19:59

Got down scaled to 2191, but still was top score overall in all my 9 league's… I hope rocket back up the rankings this week, after plummeting 2600 places after the last round.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 20:39

    Pretty great score this week lamme, well done.

      Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 20:46

      thanks Russty, I upgraded this week fom JOM and beams to Yoyo and Doc, so their scores helped me tremendously and the gamble with Rocky as Capt.

Matze · 07/05/2017 at 20:06

Got beaten even though opponent had a doughnut. Pardon and Hannan killed me :'( the stench is wafting big time

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 20:10

Hi community,

Ended up with 2025. About par I suppose. Will take it. Should keep me at around the 3500 ranking mark this week.

The start of this season has been the most difficult that I can remember. It has been a bloody nightmare. Dud rooks all over the place, premos spudding, VC Calamities (0-7), suspensions, (Nankervis, Greene) late outs/ ommissions/non selections, etc etc (Newman, Barrett). It just goes on and on.

But that is Supercoach. Just like the AFL competition, it is absolutely ruthless.

Time to lick the wounds, stay strong, and focus on next week.

It could be the "break out" round for those coaches who stick fat.


    INPieman · 07/05/2017 at 20:33

    I'd say your a bit above par. Another horrid round. So many spuds

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 20:39

    Cheers Tophawk, yes it has been a brutat test of character this year, I don't remember it being this tough since I started playing in 2007, we all need to think very carefully about who our trades will be this week, don't think it'll be any rookies for me lol

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 20:50

    I had one year off supercoach last year. Should've waited one more and stopped the carnage

    Danners · 07/05/2017 at 21:48

    Definitely agree Tophawk, not starting Butler and starting Parker has killed me at the moment. I think the main thing I've learnt is no midpriced mids so far. Swallow, O'Meara, Beams just can't stay out on the park

Lazza · 07/05/2017 at 20:16

Traded in Pendles and Martin … considered Neale and Goldy … lost 3 won 3 comps … would have won all 6 … at least I didn't end up with spuds Parson and EVW… looking to trade in one of Yeo, Neale and Robertson this week… thoughts?

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 20:50

    Isn't Neale still at 600k? There is better value around. I'd go with Yeo right now

Lazza · 07/05/2017 at 20:17

Roberton …

BlueNath · 07/05/2017 at 20:37

ok everyone, let's get our minds off round 7 before someone gets hurt.

I want to know everyone's strategies going into to bye rounds. I think the byes are stretched out nicely this year. So as long as you don't have too many players from the round 11 bye round (St Kilda, Western Bulldogs, Sydney Swans, Brisbane Lions, Carlton, Melbourne), then I feel like I'll be ok. So for me, I've kinda not places much emphasis on them as much this year. Am I alone?

I think having a rather full stack of (turd producing) rookies that are getting a game (looking at you Horse!) is key in the next week or so

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 20:47

    I'm going to try and get as many round 12 teams in from now on. Only got 2 all up

    Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:19

    Bye strategy? Im struggling to pick the good premos, good rookies let alone worrying about the byes.
    I think just like most years, wait for the currently struggling premos to have their byes then get them in, guys like Pendles, Martin and the like.
    Couple that with hoping that rookies like Newman, Stewart, Barret, Berry, Balic, Buttler, Pickett, Eddy, Fox, Fisher, Parson and Pickket (off the top of my head) can string some games together leading into the byes/get back into the teams and hope they fatten up as much as possible to make it easier to find those funds. Full premo you could do with still 0-10 trades left, now, you may struggle if you are trigger happy like myself

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:30

      I don't even think about bye strategies I must admit, whatever will be will be, I just factor in one bad round out of 3 in the byes, or maybe do one extra trade to lessen the damage. More damage has been done already than will probably be done in the bye rounds haha

Captain Risky · 07/05/2017 at 20:52

2195 somehow.. Zero donuts first major achievement… No thanks to Hannan but he exceeded his break even at least.. Nank welcome back this week, I missed you.

Didn't go Parsons or EVW last week, double upgrade to Pendles and Z Williams ( Otten & Beams Out) .
Honorable but neither great.

Treleor shitting me too often. Nice to have Zerrett, Marchbank and Buddy this week though!

Everyone else generally nice and consistent. Bont(C) Dahl, Macrae, Doch, Laird, Lloyd, Danger, Fyfe, Oliver all did well enough.

Newman, Hampton, Hannan & Treloar on this weeks naughty list. Wish I had a shotgun!

    Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 21:01

    Yeah Captain Risky, I think that was the key this week the Double Upgrade

    Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 21:13

    I was up against you this week captain – you ripped me to shreds!

      Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 08:19

      Sorry about that!, You scored well enough, pretty similar teams really. Tex and JPK let you down, probably the only differences.

        Finnius123 · 08/05/2017 at 08:56

        Yeah – my POD premium played so badly he might as well have been a doughnut

Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 20:56

Wow ranked 1,217 my highest rank for the season, went back up 2900 spots….Stoked!

Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2017 at 21:01

My dad had a ripper of a round. 2200 odd and 537th overall. I thought his team was bad at the start of the season but with players like Ryan Burton, Marchbank, Ryder, Franklin (C) B. Hill, Witts, WHE god it's good scoring

The BONT · 07/05/2017 at 21:13

Dan Hustons and Dan Butlers BE anyone

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:17

    Houston 62 and Butler 56 BONT

    Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:21

    62 and 52 respectively

    hedski · 07/05/2017 at 22:02

    Will hold them another week, Otten and Hampton need to go this week, both BE's in the 90s.

Johnny · 07/05/2017 at 21:18

Neale or Pendles?

    Pod · 07/05/2017 at 21:23

    Neale POD

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:23

    Interesting question Johnny, many peeps thought Neale wouldn't be relevant anymore when Fyfe came back, but so far this year he's surpassed him and seems to have lowered Fyfe's output, unless Fyfe's injured of course.
    Freo, also look to be improving, having a few good wins…Collingwood are on the way down to the bottom, Pendles has been up and down, but usually always reliable, not this
    So it's a tough one….trust your gut, or your gnads…it's a 50-50 for me.

      Johnny · 07/05/2017 at 21:31

      Thanks Russty_, think I might give Neale a go as he's a pod!

        Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:32

        He's pretty good mate, I don't think you can go wrong with him.

          KSinny · 07/05/2017 at 21:46

          But Neale is 50k more so could save a bit of coin

    Danners · 07/05/2017 at 21:45

    Missed the boat on Neale, so Pendles. But if you need a POD, Zerrett is $70k cheaper

Tommo09 · 07/05/2017 at 21:23

Slumped to 55k after the weekend

Def: Laird, Simpson, Tuohy, Hibberd, Otten, Hampton (Newman, Stewart)
Mid: Bont, Selwood, Danger, Fyfe, Kennedy, TMitch, SPP, Balic (Barrett, Fisher, Hibberd)
Ruc: Nank, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Lynch, JJK, Steele, Houston, Butler, Parsons (Hannan, Eddy)

20 trades and 564k
Wanting Pendles and maybe another upgrade this week, maybe up to Heeney
Looking at these players for upgrades
Montagna Docherty
Pendles Rocky
Stef Martin
NRoo Dahl

My team is just not scoring high enough
Need to upgrade and upgrade fast

Thoughts community???

    derek · 07/05/2017 at 21:30

    I can't believe you don't have either Dalhaus or Mcrae.

    if you watched the swans play, you will also want to get Buddy.

    Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 21:30

    comment below

    redherringfc · 07/05/2017 at 21:35

    Otten and Hampton out, they have reached their max. Do you have dpp mids? take adams, he's on fire, and probably shaw.

    redherringfc · 07/05/2017 at 21:37

    next week look to get a premium mid, probably Pendles.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 22:17

    With that much cash. Double upgrade time me thinks. Heath Shaw looked good on the weekend (a few turnovers hurt his score), but he is cheap. Pick him up now. If Newman not selected next week, kick his arse.

    Avoid NRoo #broken
    Avoid Martin/Dahl/Rocky #breakevenunbloodylikely
    Avoid Montagna #toothlength
    Doc #rnd12 buy

    Pendles is cheap. Kick Butler/Houston/Hampton's arse out via DPP. Just check your rnd 13 byes though, there are a few in the mids, but should be fine given other lines.

    All the best. You probably need to paint the fence for as many weeks as you can to full premo #burnthosetrades!


Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:29

91 and 90 breakevens for Otten and Hampton this week, they need to be culled before bleeding our cash money, you would need some serious bank to trade them out to keepers though.
I've got 300k but not enough to upgrade them both to keepers, thinking just Hampton up to Laird/Shaw.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:35

    Yeah just target one at a time mate, Laird, Shaw, Jones, Roberton, Hurley even.

    Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:39

    Can do Otten > Shaw and Butler > Franklin
    It seems like a weekly occurrence where big decisions need to be made

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:42

    Should've double downgraded last week. Would've got in some premiums when none are on the bubble

Finnius123 · 07/05/2017 at 21:29

With the lack of rookies this week – do we think that Jarrod berry is still a viable downgrade option? BE -23, good JS and DPP

    derek · 07/05/2017 at 21:39

    who else is there? will be looking at the rookie reports very closely.

    Danners · 07/05/2017 at 21:43

    This is why I suggested to double down last week. If you looking at rookies, you might as well take the punt on a one gamer like Myers to save $40k

      DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 21:53

      Yeah I went double down last week also now I just need to pick 2 premos I like

      Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 21:57

      Was well with you on the double down! How glad I was to sub on Parsons for Houston(E) #Fail. Glad to have EVW on the bench too…. but alas I do think it was the right call. Most of the premo's I would have bought failed to fire SC wise so only a few points lost and hopefully they (parsons/evw) both turn up to work again next weekend…boots laced.

      Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:43

      Should've listened to you. Now I'm screwed over! Just have to see where they play Myers this week to check on JS

    Ben · 07/05/2017 at 22:14

    I reckon Berry is definitely a decent option to consider this week. In his new rover roll he will score higher and more consistantly, if newman and stewart both don't play again this week… it could be worth the trade

    Brian · 07/05/2017 at 22:31

    Average of 39 suggest there won't be much cash in him. I'd rather go early on Myer or take a punt on mcnice at 102k and averaging 54 whenever he gets back in he will generate some cash

      DefyingMadness · 08/05/2017 at 02:01

      Berry is great I got him last week and very happy

    Leeds17 · 08/05/2017 at 06:12

    I guess he has to be, that 14 drops out next week and if he hits another 60 he'll be moving in the right direction.

Iamme · 07/05/2017 at 21:30

Hampton for Doc and SSP for Rocky, that should pump up the weekly scoring.

Brian · 07/05/2017 at 21:31

To Yeo or not to Yeo. That is the big question this week.
Alright guys so Yeo is priced at 525k this week with a be of 32, if we want to get him then this is the week. I think I will be jumping on. He hasn't scored less the 100 outside of the mcg this year, and they don't play there again. His scoring power has obviously gone up compared to other year where it was up and down like a "Yeo Yeo". He is averaging 114 and it's hard to see how he won't be a top 6 forward.
Welcome to my team Mr Yeo Yeo.

    derek · 07/05/2017 at 21:40

    to expensive now. good fortune to all those who do have him

      Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 11:15

      He's a top 6 forward who will only increase in price. Not too expensive but you could have got him a lot cheaper.

      kim · 08/05/2017 at 13:06

      Yes he has gone up quite a lot derek but averaging 114 at the moment so he is still underpriced. Can't see him maintaining that average mind you but some idiots asre paying 580k to bring in docherty and over 535 to bring in adams in def. I think he will easily average more than buddy or heeney so thats who i am bringing in this week, very big ceiling and has shown in last 2 games what he can do.

      West coast very hard to beat at home as well has scored very well in every home game so far. I think they also have at least 9 more games at home this year.

    KSinny · 07/05/2017 at 21:43

    Luckily I got him when he was 480k so saved myself 45k

      Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 21:47

      well played….

    Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 21:51

    The other attractive thing about Mr Yo-Yo is the Rnd 12 bye. Bloody ripper that. He does have a Yo-Yo serries of Tough/not-so-tough matches coming up, although they do occur at DS…The burn marks are still there…but alas….will he make an appearance for randomcliche? I'm not sure.

      Brian · 07/05/2017 at 22:34

      Playing more as a half back this year though which is obviously helping. I'm not expecting to escape completely burn free but I think he is worth the risk

    TigerNut · 07/05/2017 at 23:49

    i bought him in at $411 as I can remember. Risky selection with upside

The BONT · 07/05/2017 at 21:31

Is Kurt Mutimer the only one on the bubble

    Brian · 07/05/2017 at 21:32

    terrible bubble options this week. Might need to go early on Myer

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:39

      Or just, not trade or only do one trade.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 21:45

    No, McNiece should be back. Just like Preuss should have been weeks ago….

    derek · 07/05/2017 at 21:50

    Anderson $238k and Francis $259k are expensive rookies.

    Francis does have FWD/DEF DPP, but i would have liked to see better scores from him in his first two games. Highly rated though.

    Long might get another crack

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 21:33

Think I will hold off on bringing in Simpson and Doch for now even though they have low breakevens. The rookies down back are pretty solid and I think this week I will bring in Yeo and Heeney

Joshua · 07/05/2017 at 21:38

Everyone forgetting Mcniece got rested this week. Thinking Hampton down to him and either Otten to Adams or Houston to yeo. Thoughts?

    Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:45

    Hopefully Newman gets a gig this week. Will take Mcniece to the pine and Otten and Hampton out my team

Mike · 07/05/2017 at 21:43

Yeo or Buddy? Who is more likely to be top 6

    DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 21:44

    I still have my doubts about Buddy

    Boltons Blues · 07/05/2017 at 21:45

    Both could be given the nickname Yo-Yo, you'll get that from both of them, 160 one week, 60 the next

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 21:48

    Both if you can get em…probably Yeo first.

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 07:11


    Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 11:12

    Yeo has the round 12 friendly bye

Wedge · 07/05/2017 at 21:49

I sense I'll get a lot of stick for suggesting this but if Pedersen keeps that ruck job at Melbourne could be a good sneaky mid price. 367,000 with a BE of 14. Gawn and spencer out long term

    Dnoyes · 07/05/2017 at 22:40

    If he was in the low 300's I'd strongly consider bringing him in. However at 367,000 I don't think he has enough cash generation in him to justify the trade.

      Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 00:39

      Cash generation is a moot point now that everything has gone to the complete shithouse this year. We need to look for players affordable who aren't going to send us backwards.

        Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:13

        Truth. Rookies just aren't around. List of rookies on the bubble:

        *grasshopper noises*
        *tumbleweed goes past
        And that's about it

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 23:08

    Trust your gut Wedge…do it, if it feels right.

    Swans2012 · 07/05/2017 at 23:20

    Am considering, just worried I won't have the trades to move him on when spencer/gawn are back

      Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 23:26

      By that time, he could be worth 500k_+ or be a keeper and Spencer won't get a gig…take the punt mate, I'm gonna. Not to mention he could be scoring you valuable points along the way. πŸ™‚

      whatyasmokin · 07/05/2017 at 23:46

      Don't even think about it. Season defining trash trade right there. Don't be fooled by a two game performance, happens time and time again.

    whatyasmokin · 07/05/2017 at 23:45

    Save the 85K and trade in Tom Boyd with a BE of 2.

    Pedersen isn't maintaining that average, simple as that.

      Finnius123 · 08/05/2017 at 08:54

      Tom Boyd will score 20 next week – mark my words

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 00:03

    I wouldn't pay attention to scaremongering Wedge… look at what he's already done since he came in, and sharing the ruck duties with Watts and Hogan, and that Spencer won't be back for at least 4 weeks, and Gawn for 8 or more… if you believe he's worth it, go for it, I think he is, and don't give a fk about what any naysaying, negative people say. πŸ™‚

      whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 00:50

      Spencer back in 4 weeks, says it all.

      Mate, you think I'm saying this stuff just to be negative, look at his history.

      Bloke has 63 games over 7 seasons.

      14 of those games in 2011 and averaged 84, that is his best.

      Has been pretty much a spud ever since, and has averaged 70 the last two years.

      Absolute waste of two trades. Sure Boyd is a spud too, but what is the difference and cheaper.

      Pedersen's scores are gone, chasing them is pointless. Ala Matera.

        Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:04

        I tend to disagree smokin cause of the circumstances, unique circumstances which throw Pederson into a Ruck/swinging fwd role, which has him scoring good points , and for at least the next 4 weeks. Not saying he's a keeper but could make some money and some points in the interim…in these turbulent times of let downs, lost money and underperforming spud farkers…until we're ready to move him on to the next better thing.

          whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 01:17

          There's been too many trade corrections to go for this kind of move now, we need to stay strong and stick to our plans of guns and rookies. His JS is just too shaky and his price too high.

          His supercoach career on footy wire show it all.

            Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:29

            Hey Mate, you're entitled to your opinion, and I respect that, I just respectfully disagree…I think Pederson could be a shark move that could move one ahead of the pack…at least for a month or so. Good luck to ya.

            Daniel Z · 08/05/2017 at 11:12

            I think it depends a lot more on (1) how many trades you have and (2) where you are in the pack.
            Trades – if you're around 22 remaining, it is a feasible option.
            Ranking – If you need to differentiate to reel in the leaders, it could work.

            I was looking at him as well after his first game and am still strongly considering.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 00:05

    P.S Tom Boyd id a spud, he's never averaged anything worth shitting on in 4 years.

      whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 00:52

      Both are a waste of two trades.

    Danners · 08/05/2017 at 11:22

    As BT would say, "Why why why?" He got absolutely dominated by Big Boy McEvoy so I can't see him doing to well

DefyingMadness · 07/05/2017 at 21:53

Do we trade out Beams this week assuming we have no other problems?

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 23:18

    Already traded him out for Pendles…who's we? do what you have to do…for your team mate.

    whatyasmokin · 07/05/2017 at 23:48

    We traded him out last week.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:11

    Yes… actually if you kept him I think he is being retested this week so if he's only out for one more round keep him

Stanks21 · 07/05/2017 at 21:55

Hi Community,

Had a horrible week with Nank/Greene out and Newman not playing. First game under 2000 for the year.

Team as It stands is:

Laird. Tuohy, Roberton
Shaw, Adams, Newman
(VW and Stewart)

Fyfe, Oliver, Kennedy, Dalhaus,
Zorko, Pendlebery, Powell Pepper, Taranto
(Fisher, Barrett, Hibberd)

Marting, Nankervis

Yeo, Franklin, Greene
Steele, Balic, Parsons
(Hayward, Eddy)

281,200 in bank
19 trades left

What to do :/ any suggestions are welcome.


    Ben · 07/05/2017 at 22:19

    Honestly with only 19 trades left i wouldnt trade at all mate. Hold onto them until theres a rookie on the bubble worth picking up, then use extra cash to strengthen mids or forwards. Defense already looks great though i must admit

      Stanks21 · 07/05/2017 at 22:22

      Yeah i made a couple of shit moves and had gawn which didnt help. I was thinking maybe downgrade newman dont see him playing tbh and upgrading powell pepper or taranto to a forward… but not sure yet. Might hold like you said. Im the kind of person that goes all out in supercoach to try and get my team up to scratch ASAP

        whatyasmokin · 07/05/2017 at 23:31

        PP has a BE of 10, Danger BE of 168.

        Poor trade.

    Randomcliche2 · 07/05/2017 at 22:26

    Danger looks cheap, perhaps next week. Maybe Hannerbury? #keeptradinggrasshopper

      Stanks21 · 07/05/2017 at 23:29

      Danger is dirt cheap, thinking I might go PP to him this week and downgrade newman as I don't think he will be in sydneys team consistently… especially when alir alir and McVeigh are returning

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:09

    Loaded defense. Kudos on that
    This week get Danger in. I wish I didn't start with him now that he is sub-600k

DavidSA · 07/05/2017 at 22:54

Strongly concidering these 2 trades
Hampton > Junker def/mid looping donut next 3 games North Sunday's
Houston > Dusty
Leaves me with 300k

    neilDemons Delight · 07/05/2017 at 23:19


    Swans2012 · 07/05/2017 at 23:21

    Not a great season to be bringing in junkers before the byes imo, I've got enough unintentional ones

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2017 at 23:09

The Collingwood Football club is in serious trouble. The club has gone stale without any real direction

Carlton put that beyond any question yesterday.

Something has to give here. Its either Eddy or Bucks.

Eddy has more bucks than Bucks, so Bucks, your days are numbered.

As such, there is only room for one Collingwood midfield premo in my side at this time.

Pendles? Not sold.

And I am not happy with Treloar too by the way.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2017 at 23:17

    Fck Treloar off for Rocky …if you can afford it. Collingwood is fkd.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:06

    I was talked into pendles. Haha looked like he would rather be at home on the weekend

      randomcliche · 08/05/2017 at 10:49

      Sad because he is one of the greats, he looked like that 2 weeks ago as well, running 75% chasing tail.

TBone · 07/05/2017 at 23:26

After another shafting of a week, changes must be made to squad. JPK, Treloar and WInes letting me down a few weeks in a row now. But of course, they are premos, and will come good eventually! Thinking of trading Hampton to Lloyd or JJ (great value for money defenders who should both be top 6) and Petracca for Heeney. That would leave me enough cash next week to go bang! SPP straight to Zorko, wholl be on the cheap cheap. Thoughts or advice for a struggling coach looking to find a way back up the rankings?

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:47

    Hampton to Lloyd, JJ, Hurley etc sounds good man, Petracca to Heeney or Buddy, Yeo or even Pederson sounds good to me.
    It's amazing to me how little differences there are in teams doing really well to those who are struggling this year. It's usually only a few players. Keep fighting it out mate.

      TBone · 08/05/2017 at 09:26

      Thanks mate, was originally going to go straight up to Doc but would rather hold off spending the extra cash until I can trade marchbank fully fattened up to him. Lloyds dpp looks tempting and he's very consistent. JJ is a bit up and down but presents excellent value and can go really big when the dogs play well. Yeah it's frustrating that same few players continuously put up mediocre scores, but that is the game we play!

    RobDog · 08/05/2017 at 03:27

    Every one of the players you want to bring in have the round 11 bye. Keep that in mind.

    Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 11:08

    Could be top 6 not should.

BockChoy · 07/05/2017 at 23:35

Pleased with how my trades last week turned out. Otten and the busted arse lawn mower (JOM) out with Roberton and Balic in. Roberton didn't light it up but still did a lot better than Otten (who has now just met his BE over the past 2 weeks and who's big scoring days are behind him) and who I expect will be a top 6 defender. I know Balic was 1 week past the bubble but JOM was going to cost money and at any rate, was a late withdrawal. I was happy to take the higher purchase price with an estimated $40k increase on the cards and also bring back in the DPP flexibility.

I was going to stick the C on Fyfe but checked out Rocky's last 3 scores against Sydney (132 , 126 and 117) and made the change just before the first bounce.

A score of 2062 is not shooting the lights out but now lets me start clearing out some of the starting rookies, probably starting with Hampton (BE 91), Butler (56) and Houston (62). Just need to watch for suitable replacements.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:43

    Nice last minute intuition call, sticking the C on Rocky over Fyfe, gave you a serviceable score for the week πŸ™‚

Moosehead · 08/05/2017 at 00:23

Am similar to you Bock in some ways. I have $165K and Hampton has to go so I am thinking Michael Johnson, Freo at $434K.He had one bad game, injured? but the others have been ok and has averaged 119 the last three games. He won't be a top 6 defender but I my other defenders are goodo. Wouldn't mind Heath Shaw but would have to do two trades to get him.

    whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 01:03

    Was good a few years ago but has been injury prone and is long in the tooth. Not worth the heartache.

    I'd look at Hooker (ave 77 in 2013, 79 in 2014, 90 in 2015)
    Only 380K with DEF/FWD swing. Coming off an 80, 90 and 91.

    Or possibly someone like Vince/Hartlett if you think they can improve.

    Personally I'd lean away from all three of these options altogether if possible.

    BockChoy · 08/05/2017 at 07:24

    I would be putting the cash away for someone who is going to be a top 6 defender – little point going to someone who will wallow in mediocrity.

    Moosehead · 08/05/2017 at 09:37

    Going Harbrow, because I want to use one trade and I just make it. I am not going for rank, just my league.

Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 00:53

Anyone who thinks they know what's going on this year and how it's all gonna pan out…are generally mistaken. May as well just admit it, none of us know how it's all gonna turn out, because this season is one big FUBAR πŸ™‚ It'll be interesting to see who wins it all, and then try to analyse what they did…what their "winning formula" was…I think we'll find it'll be a mixture of sensible choices, and some very out of the box thinking, and all executed in a timely manner. ..with a lot of luck.
People who act like they know what's going to happen really shit me, no one knows what's going to happen, you learn that with age,to an extent, but never really fully.
Hopefully, you learn to have some humility…and not act arrogantly, in other people's faces. That's just damn annoying. Such is the state of Social media type forums these days I guess. Harumph lol

    JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 01:14

    Had my worst weekend Russty,traded the wrong players in,didn't cover a donut when I could have,went under 2000 for the first time,only scored 1911,dropped 4113 places to 9583 and lost seven of my eight leagues.Thought I was working to a plan,but now I'm not that sure what to do,I know the players I want and need to get rid of,but we only have so many trades.Then to top it all off my footy team lost another close one we could have won and I am now very depressed.

      Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:37

      Try not to let it get you down too much John, it is after all, supposed to be a bit of fun and entertainment. I find myself getting a bit too obsessed by it all sometimes, and it's not healthy. As hard as it is to do, I think it's best to laugh at your mistakes, and celebrate your victories. I't's a long season, and you can surprise yourself with how easy it is to make it into the top 8 in your league. From there, you only need to have enough trades to be able to get into the top 4 for the double chance. Forget about overall rankings, it's too much pressure on yourself.
      I'm ranked 2300ish but not even thinking about winning the whole thing, I just play for leagues cause it's fun. If I ever did win the whole thing, it'd be a huge shock lol, cause I would trade guys like Pederson in for 4 weeks hahah

        JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 12:52

        Thanks for that Russty,I just let it get to me,I was annoyed at my self for changing my mind on my trades,which turned into a disaster,on a good note I took your advice about not worrying about overall rankings,had a look at my leagues,out of the eight leagues I'm 1st in one,top 4 in two, top 8 in three and 9th and 11th in the other two,so that is a positive

      Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 09:03

      I somehow cobbled together 2230 and jumped a bunch of places. But if you look at my trading history, I've clearly not been working to a plan. I think it comes down to rookies. Past years if you missed a cash cow there was another coming along you could jump on. This year there's no such luxury and making cash has been like getting blood out of a stone. So you can't really make plans because you need cash to do that. I reckon it's a year to go for a few mid priced speculators as I can't see many getting to a full proper premium team anyway.

        neilDemons Delight · 08/05/2017 at 09:21

        Couldn't agree more R G I will fall short but last year I did also BUT had Menapoo HEWITT and that port player cbr all spuds on field and crashed out in straight sets.The difference is what you say find that speculative mid pricer such as Steele over Buddy or Kelly over Pendles at least you have a reasonable team and no poos

        JohndJames · 08/05/2017 at 15:00

        That was a huge score for this round Rick,starting to think that I won't worry to much about my plan,since its not going that well anyway and I'll just take it a week at a time,if the rookies are there,trade them in,if a premo that you want is good value get them in and if a mid priced player looks the goods I wont be afraid to trade him in as well.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/05/2017 at 07:03

    I agree all those arrogant people annoy me! But at least I know what to do haha

    Top Gun · 08/05/2017 at 07:13

    Going on gut instinct is still the best plan

    Top deal · 08/05/2017 at 09:34

    Great note Rusty. Well done. I abhor the braggers and the those who tell people what they should do, however, it may suit the lazy, new, niave SCers. Nowadays, SC has so much information which enables one to investigate for informed choices. Of course luck plays a big part as usual, maybe more so this year.

whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 01:13

Spencer with low job security is an absolute spud pick. This is a warning not to pick him.

At 367K………..

You only need

46K to get Witts.

53K to Kreuzer.

91K for Ryder.

Roughly 120K for Goldy, Sauce, Nank or Grundy.

Anyone considering a guy with risky JS at this price is just looking at the short term and being too reactive to low amounts of data.

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 01:21

    Spencer is $236400, and is out injured for the next 4 weeks…at least. Yeah spud pick for sure, maybe Pederson could be a good smoky, who has delivered great points so far, has a dual position role although only credited as a fwd, and is averaging 100 after 2 weeks. Could be a good fill in, till someone better comes along. Could even end up being a keeper.

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 08:23

      I think he meant Pederson not Spencer

        whatyasmokin · 08/05/2017 at 16:42

        Haha yeah Pedersen. Do not touch people!

Touk tuk · 08/05/2017 at 06:05

I dont think pendles a must have this year or anymore… had 3 score under 90. I think the only pie SC relevant this year is adams.

Thoughts community?

    Touk tuk · 08/05/2017 at 06:06

    3 under 100

      Leeds17 · 08/05/2017 at 06:10

      3 under 100 but still averaging 113.

    Kyle · 08/05/2017 at 07:02

    Id still say pendles is very sc relevant mate. Still averaging great and at his current price looks like a bit of a bargain.

    Of the whole collingwood side id say that pendles and adams are the only that are really relevant. Treloar has been shit this year.

    Ozone · 08/05/2017 at 09:28

    You are sillly

    randomcliche · 08/05/2017 at 11:03

    I'm going to add a defender from my team Howe… because well, he's relevant to me πŸ˜›

    Oh and Bucks, get rid of Dunn now so he can score, thanks mate. Yeah, sorry about the job, don't worry, go to talk to Clarko, he keeps losing coaches so should have job for you.

Kyle · 08/05/2017 at 07:04

Need to get rid of otten and hampton this week.

I went hampton > zerret and have 30k left in the bank.

Is muttimer a valid option this week? His scoring improved from last week. Only other real option is mcniece if he is named. I would hate to be left with a rookie bleeding cash.

    Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 07:15

    Yea not many options appearing down back. I dearly wish Newman was still in play, he hasn't really been given much of a chance. I need to shift Hampton but if i do I have zero bench cover. Mutimer looked ok on the weekend but not sure about JS. If McNeice could get an extended run it would ben McNice.

Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 07:17

Crouching was bang on with his Hibberd comment. If you graph his scores he's heading to sh1t.

The BONT · 08/05/2017 at 07:19

Who is more of a problem
Hampton on bench
Treloar on feild

    neilDemons Delight · 08/05/2017 at 09:07

    Same problem Bont At present I traded Treloar and Hampton for Adams and YEO..I know this is sideways trading which is a no no but it may be necessary Too many good performing players Bontepelli pendles adams doc . .I am going to fall one short and by keeping Treloar over Mcgrath I could almost solve it Is Sandi witts the real deal

    Kinghell · 08/05/2017 at 09:26

    Get rid of Hampton. You have short memories of Treloar. Sure he is a little consistent. I dare you to trade him out!

Derek · 08/05/2017 at 08:30

I read somewhere that this week was the first time ever that every winner beat a team that was higher on the ladder than they were.

    Sloppy Joe · 08/05/2017 at 09:18

    Derek. You are amazing with your footy knowledge. You must spend hours on SC.

BARAK · 08/05/2017 at 08:39

Had cam mccarthy, murphy, Issac smith and roughy.
Traded in matera, parsons, pendles and fisher for no returns.

May just clisemy eyes and pick chumps that can kick a ball

red5jc · 08/05/2017 at 08:39

I reckon I'll just hold this week
Theres a few rookies with high BE's but no other rookies on decent bubbles.
Better to have a warm body on the field.

Steeeve · 08/05/2017 at 08:49

Beware everyone hoping to pick up Pendlebury this week — possibly missing this week as his missus is about to pop.

    Derek · 08/05/2017 at 10:06

    That explains a lot. Is this his first?

      INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 10:37

      Yep it's his first. She's 38 weeks & he said if she goes into labour on the weekend he won't play. And if she goes into labour during a game he will leave immediately. Not good

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 18:13

    Oh shit…someone stick a cork in it lol

NickMacMan · 08/05/2017 at 08:49

What defender do i bring in for Otten? looking for premo


    Kyle · 08/05/2017 at 09:50

    Adams doc laird simpson shaw. In that order.

    I would keep clear of howe and rance. Howe is being affected by dunn and the rance hasnt been playing well. The two havnt really shown much to say they will be top 6

      Derek · 08/05/2017 at 10:04

      Agree 100%

    Tom · 08/05/2017 at 10:27

    Zac Jones if looking for value.

      Wedge · 08/05/2017 at 11:27

      Zac williams or zac tuohy playing during the rnd 11 bye

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 08/05/2017 at 08:52

2139 this week with Parsons on field. Pretty good result. Back up to 938 overall.

Pendles in for Otten and Heeney in for Butler this week. Leaves me with 90k, 21 trades, and Dangerfield in next week after he drops a bit in price again this week.

Thoughts on Heeney? Can see him averaging 100 going forward. Good FWD option, imo

red5jc · 08/05/2017 at 08:52

How many trades do you have left??
I have 24.

    NickMacMan · 08/05/2017 at 08:53

    21 already traded this week

    Finnius123 · 08/05/2017 at 09:08

    17 including this weeks trade

      Eskimo · 08/05/2017 at 09:43

      Yeah 17 was worried but glad I did trade like crazy. Most were rookie money making trades now no more rookies. Only need 5 more or 6 more premos (witty is he one?) only trouble is my damn premos include treloar, jpk, etc..

        Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 10:00

        Witts is a bit of a dilemma .. I will probably be keeping him for the foreseeable future and through his bye.

        Scoring better than Grundy & Goldy & cost a bucket load less.

        No one else is really jumping out and saying pick me, pick me. Martin & Mummy both going ok but set to drop in price, rucks are all over the place thus far.

        Pretty Happy to have gone Sandiwiits and Nank this year.

          Wedge · 08/05/2017 at 10:10

          Big boy mcevoy needs considering. His latest run is hard to ignore

            Captain Risky · 08/05/2017 at 10:28

            In a purple patch for sure.

            But hasn't averaged over 90 while he's been at Hawks- 89(14), 83(15) & 66(16) last 3 years.
            Not since 2011, 2012 at saints has he averaged over 100.

            History says no IMO.

    Notorious mac · 08/05/2017 at 10:03

    I have 19. Doesn't really matter how many you have you have left as long as you are getting to full premium. Once that is done then you trade the underperforming guns

neilDemons Delight · 08/05/2017 at 08:58

Three short of full squad McGrath SPP and I"ll get you Butler.. all three are capable .but I will still fall short.. I need Doc Bont and Buddy probably too dear 1.8 m. These three I have will be 1.3 in the byes .That's it I will be one short post byes with little chance of getting one of these possibly keep Mcgrath to last and hope Parsons tons up 3 times wishfull thinking Congrats to TRIG WELL DONE Franklin proved a gem Cheers

Big Ben · 08/05/2017 at 09:22

Don't you just love all the aholes who come on here and brag about how clever they were trading in some guy who goes huge on the weekend as if they were some sort of supercoach genius. Of course you never hear from them when that same player spuds it the following week. It's like all those pricks who gloated about putting the C on GAJ last week but you don't hear a murmur from them when they put the C on GAJ this week. πŸ™‚

    Liam · 08/05/2017 at 09:27

    What's worse are all the tools who trade in a player a week after they have a huge score. Wondering how many jump on Waite this week for instance. Or the flog who puts the C on Gazza on the weekend. Sorry but you're a week too late pal. Point chasers make me want to barf!

      The Bont · 08/05/2017 at 09:31

      It's all about taking risks if you want to go up in rankings… Sounds like Big Ben always makes good captain choices

        Big Ben · 08/05/2017 at 12:05

        Nup wish I did but I definitely don't brag about it when I do. Already too many posers on here saying how they have heaps of trades left or how they knew Buddy would go big and thus it was obvious to put the C on him this week. News flash – NO ONE CARES!!!

          ahole · 08/05/2017 at 12:18

          That's not true Big B, only YOU don't care. Enough of your dribble, start contributing to the SC (Jock Reynolds) community.

          Adam · 08/05/2017 at 12:26

          Couldn't agree more mate. Way too many douches on this site bloviating about this or that. Jock really need to do something about the waste of space trolls here who are too gutless to post using their real name. We need authenticated accounts and not these anonymous posters.

    ahole · 08/05/2017 at 09:38

    I know what you mean. Oh, did I mention I had Buddy as C, and I had GAZ as C last week : )

      Eskimo · 08/05/2017 at 09:48


    One Touch Wonder · 08/05/2017 at 10:01

    I think it is only fair that I tell everyone what my SHARK MOVES are.

      Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 18:17

      I think it's only fair that you tell us your SHARK MOVES too, O.T.W :)…very entertaining.

    Tibor · 08/05/2017 at 10:16

    Most of them had Shaun Higgins

    Martin · 08/05/2017 at 12:30

    That's why I don't bother coming here during the weekends as that's when all the 'have no life' trolls come out.

      King of Trolls · 08/05/2017 at 12:44

      Did you know there's a pill for your condition?

    Filthy Phil · 08/05/2017 at 12:36

    You're just bitter bud because your side sucks ass like Patch's Potatoes.What's your rank if you have the guts to tell us.Will probably just lie anyway so don't bother responding.

    Jimmy D · 08/05/2017 at 12:39

    AMEN brother!

    Russty_ · 08/05/2017 at 18:22

    I think ya just have to take the good with the bad Big Ben…I told someone once to keep their opinion to themselves and then was reeled in by some of the regulars and I felt terrible afterwards. I think in this Social media age, we just have to allow people to say what they wanna say, in the spirit of Jock's online Community.

H Lee · 08/05/2017 at 09:30

recommended defensive upgrades for otten? only have 530,000 available, just short of adams

    Stanks21 · 08/05/2017 at 09:49

    Shaw or Tuohy are cheapish and have been scoring well consitantly over the last 3

Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 09:47

What's the deal with Harbrow? Tonned up 4/5, averaging 97. Is he in a different role?

    Dude · 08/05/2017 at 10:25

    Either way little point considering him until after his round 9 bye.

      The Joker · 08/05/2017 at 10:55

      I am going him if the round 9 bye rules apply. That is best 18 and not the usual 22.
      Only 2% have him.

        hedski · 08/05/2017 at 11:10

        Best 22 round 9 Joker.

          Joker · 08/05/2017 at 11:28


Lachy · 08/05/2017 at 09:56

Literally no good rookies to trade in. Hopefully Myers cracks a 70-80 without injury this week. then I'll consider.

    Liam · 08/05/2017 at 10:31

    Mutimer or maybe McNiece appear the only options.

    Golden Bear · 08/05/2017 at 10:32

    How about that Berry boy?

FEARTHEBEARD · 08/05/2017 at 10:12

Anyone know Adams B/E & Rockys. Please.

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 10:40

    Adams 84 & Rocky 145

      FEARTHEBEARD · 08/05/2017 at 11:54

      Thanks Pieman.

      Welcome Adams!

Granny apple · 08/05/2017 at 10:29

New to SC and it is hard and not doing well. The byes allow you to select your best 18 players/scores. I assume this applies to found 9 as well where only PA and GCS's are involved

    hedski · 08/05/2017 at 11:11

    Nope best 22 round 9

      Granny apple · 08/05/2017 at 11:27

      Yeh thanks. Just looked up the rules. Beggar.

    Daniel Z · 08/05/2017 at 11:58

    No, as someone mentioned above, that only applies rounds 11, 12, and 13.
    I think the thinking is, if only two teams are missing, it shouldn't cause excessive carnage for one week. We'll see though I guess…

Thomas · 08/05/2017 at 10:33

Got 361k in the bank and thinking double upgrade. Do I get rid
Hampton and Otten
Or one of Houston/Butler and one of Otten/Hampton

    Wedge · 08/05/2017 at 11:22

    I'm getting rid of both otten and hampton. BE for both at 90. If butler and houston score their average they won't drop in price this week.

BingoBangoJingoJango · 08/05/2017 at 11:07

Best Mid or Fwd to bring in under 570k? Thinking Hanners for value. Looks to be hitting form

    INPieman · 08/05/2017 at 11:25

    Yeo if you haven't got him I'm afraid to say

      Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 11:48

      I really want Yeo but can't find the rookie downgrade to make it happen. Plenty will steer clear based on past burns, but he's playing a different role and the decision should be made without cognitive bias. He's clearly the top forward after 7 rounds. That's no fluke.

        kim · 08/05/2017 at 12:52

        He's actually clearly the number 1 forward a the moment and 7th ranked overall after last 2 big weeks! He has gone 120+ quite a few times already this year, franklin has done it once this year i think. Easy decision for me this week, better bye round and mid/fwd handy with my other rookie mid/fwd swingers.

        Alot of people still doubted zach merrett at about the same time last year and went on to continue to smash out 110+ scores almost every week.

    Jack · 08/05/2017 at 11:42


The Master · 08/05/2017 at 11:35

I need to do something different- a shark move, everything else I have done this season has turned to Sh*t. Thinking of trading Beams via DPP to either Elliot Yeo or Jarrad Waite. I have tried sensible, now nothing left to lose.

    Rick Grimes · 08/05/2017 at 11:45

    Yeo looks to be a very good move. He's in a different role and has been ultra consistent. Definitely top 6 forward, maybe the top forward this year. Waite I would steer clear of. Injury, inconsistency, take your pick. Go JJK if you want a bloke who can smash the ceiling.

      Just Jeff · 08/05/2017 at 11:55

      He will suck plenty in and only then will get a sucky role change. I'm expecting another 60 score against the Dogs this Friday.

        kim · 08/05/2017 at 12:47

        Yeo hasn't gone under 100 at domain this year and is averaging 114 for the year, he will throw in the occasional crap game but all the forwards are doing it as well. When he's on he's on had over 60 points last week in last 1/4 alone.

        I wasn't sold on yeo afew weekss back but he has smashed out 2 120+ scores in a row and last week was playing away so he's min my team this week upgraded hannan so can't lose in that trade wasnt playing hannan on field, yeo also mid/fwd so handy in the bye rounds.

        No way i would trade in waite, he did the same thing last year, went on to score terrible after about round 5 or so and got re-injured as well.

          The Master · 08/05/2017 at 13:12

          Ok thanks, I will give the yo yo a go, I nearly put him in last week but went for Pendlebery instead.

Cogla13 · 08/05/2017 at 13:02

Yeo is not really a shark move, his ownership is at about 20%. I brought him in last week for Beams.

Sharewarepot · 24/06/2017 at 01:25

Really amazing posting here in this site i must visit again this site for more opportunities
