Round 8 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

PanicRoomRd8

It hurts, community. It really bloody hurts. We’re a proud bunch here in the JR Community and it sucks logging in on a Sunday night to see another sub-2000 effort.

There’s absolutely nothing worse than rocking up to work on a Monday and bloody Gary from accounting casually drops he scored 2200 on the weekend. “How did you pick your team?” You ask him. “The day before SuperCoach opened, he replies. With that article from Herald Sun that showed all the good picks. LOL” (Yes, he’s the type that says LOL in conversation). You slink away back to your cubicle, mentally reminding yourself to cross him off your Christmas card list. Lucky prick.  

I could use this article to drop some inspirational quotes that vaguely link to the situation we’re facing here. Nietzsche, Plato, Aristotle. I don’t give a stuff about those guys. When I’m in need a good inspirational kick up the pants there’s only one man I turn to. Revered by men, lusted after by women, looked up to by the children of our generation. His name is Jock Reynolds.

“You are about to be challenged, my friend. You will doubt yourself. You will wonder just how hard you are willing to push yourself, how willing you are to unleash the competitive beast that has stayed dormant for so many years.”  

 Jock Reynolds Magazine

I don’t want to hear any of this “I’m giving up” talk. There’s still a long way to go, community. As absolute carnage has wreaked havoc on our SuperCoach sides nation wide, hopefully you’ve quietly gone about upgrading the best you can. They don’t give out the premiership after seven weeks. Set your team up to come home strong and you can still claim a win on the big stage.

That’s it. That’s the most inspirational I can be. If that didn’t work for you this was my original idea to describe my current mental state regarding SuperCoach this year.

The News

We welcome back Toby Nankervis with open arms this week. Though, worryingly, Ivan Soldo has kept his place in the side. We’ve seen Grundy struggle when in tandem with Cox so fingers, toes, and any other extremities crossed for that not to repeat itself with Nank.

Lachie Whitfield is straight back from his 8 week layoff after “allegedly” dodging the drug testers. Adam Treloar has finally been dropped. The Pies are spinning some ridiculous yarn about his omission being because of an ankle injury but my sources tell me he’s lost too many footy’s at training trying to kick straight and Collingwood no longer have a budget to replace them. His usual match payment will go towards buying new ones.

We’ve also been given some fresh rookie blood this week in the form of Mark O’Connor (102k DEF), Daniel Lloyd (117k MID), Fraser McInnes (155k DEF/FWD), and James Stewart (169k FWD). Watch Lloyd in particular. He’s far too good for NEAFL and would have been a walk up start at any other team that wasn’t the Giants in round 1. Scored 115 from 77% game time in JLT1.

In tonights clash the Dogs have made two forced changes with Stringer and Dunkley out with injury. Bob Murphy has been given a rest.

Catastrophic change continues at Hawthorn. Their latest SOS going out to former Demon and current rookie, Jack Fitzpatrick. His promotion and recall to the seniors means another week in the VFL for Tyrone Vickery, which is just hilarious. Money well spent, Hawks!

Zac Fisher is straight back in after his hamstring injury kept him out last week. Koby Stevens somehow got himself rubbed out after a promising start to his career as a Saint.

Owners of Brodie Grundy have let out a sigh of relief after Cox was pulled out… of the side to face the Giants. Daniel Wells felt like playing footy this week.

The Crows teased us all by upgrading Hugh Greenwood Thursday afternoon. Alas, he hasn’t been named. They’ve made some changes that aren’t SuperCoach relevant.

There were some nervous coaches thinking Tom Stewart wouldn’t be named with Mark O’Connor debuting. He’s been called up, although we’ve lost Aaron Black. Jobe Watson and Andrew McGrath come back in after a rest.

Harley Balic has pulled out with “illness” three days before the actual game. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so i hope Mrs Balic enjoys her breakfast in bed made by Harley while I scramble to cover a forward line donut.

Dan Houston and David Swallow are amongst the outs for AFL’s genius plan to swindle the Chinese out of money on a sport they haven’t seen or understand. Reports coming in that Robbie Gray is under some doubt as well as he didn’t finish training.

Declan Mountford, Jy Simpkin, and Nic Newman are all on an extended bench for the last game of the round. Watch for Friday team announcements to see if they’ve made the cut.

Everything’s coming up, Milhouse / Dig up, Stupid!

The rookie cupboard is down the its bare bones this week, only Mutimer is on the bubble. EVW, Parsons, Berry, and Fisher are still affordable. Myers will line up for his second game, while

Brad Scheer is named on an extended bench.

Guys like Hampton (ave. 63, b.e 91), Houston (ave.67, b.e 63) and Otten (ave. 83, b.e 91) have just about maxed out and should be in your trade plans. In Otten’s case, he has scores of 61 and 69 since Jenkins returned. Cash in while he’s at his peak.  

Everything’s coming up, Milhouses 

-22 Jarrod Berry

-18 Lewis Melican

-14 SPS

-12 Jake Barrett

-8 Kurt Mutimer

-1 EVW

3 – James Parsons

7 – Zac Fisher

11 – SPP

14 – Nic Newman

 

I’ve limited myself to a dozen players with high breakevens this week. Have a gander at that list would you?! It reads like a who’s who of SuperCoach royalty. For coaches like myself who put a lot of weight behind premiums being proven over many years are seriously hurting.

Dig up, Stupid!

Joel Selwood – 180

Ollie Wines – 176

Robbie Gray – 170

Patrick Dangerfield – 169

Rory Sloane – 166

Shane Mumford – 166

Dayne Zorko – 164

Nat Fyfe – 156

Stef Martin – 150

Tom Rockliff – 146

Luke Dahlhaus – 146

JPK – 140

As always the members of this community are spinning straight up SuperCoach GOLD each and every week. These articles are a must read and they aren’t behind a stupid paywall. Lek’s cheat sheet, Jock’s cattle market, and Barron’s rookie scout report.

Captain McCaptainface

OUT – Captain’s call. IN – Captain McCaptainface

I thought about naming this section the kiss of death but that’s already been taken. That’s two weeks on the trot my captain choice has phoned it in. Maybe take this section as a guide of exactly what not to do.

For VC duties, consider Bont tonight or Rocky against the Hawks early in the early Saturday game. Bont scored 147 in his last outing against West Coast while Rocky had 45 touches and 14 marks in his last game in Tassie. Tom Mitchell could excel with Mitch Robinson sidelined.

The Crows will be looking to beat up Melbourne on their home deck. Sloane’s record at home is ridiculous and is coming off a poor game (by his standards) against the Roos. Hopefully Dangerwood can play themselves back into some form against Essendon. Rumours of Selwood’s dodgy ankle would have me steering clear though.

Can Buddy back up his 160 last week against North? I still have arousing thoughts at night of his 23 possession, 13 goal, 236 Supercoach point haul against them in 2012.

***LATE, BREAKING NEWS***

As of 3:02 this morning I became an uncle again to a little girl named Ruby. I’ll do my best to get among the comments but no promises.

Patch will be making his triumphant return next week, community! I’ve had a blast bringing the Panic Room to you for the past few weeks. As a final show of appreciation for you all, here is the theme song from the hit motion picture, The Bodyguard.

Captain Risky

Soldo is now out. Nank owners can relax a little..

Steve

Who is soldo

LoganJosh7

if newman isnt named – is he a better trade out option over otten? given newmans struggles to get in the side?

Kev

If Newman isn't named tonight and it means a donut for your side then absolutely. Rampe, Allir to return to that backline. If he's struggling now to get in he's about to find it much harder

LoganJosh7

cheeer ma'boi. Thanks for all your work! i want a job in supercoach…

LoganJosh7

Hey kev. Its me. LoganJosh. So. I traded out newman. Its a sunday night and iv just seen his score… just wondering if you know any good door i can slam my head into? Any help would be lovely…

Regards

My supercoach season.

The Coach

Treloar. Is. Gone.

He pushed me over the edge ONE TOO MANY TIMES. In comes Yeo, mostly so I can field 22 players, but also because I believe he's turned a corner. Also Hampton –> Simpson, only 7 premos to go.

This might go terribly, but let's be honest – it can't get much worse, right?

Kev

That last paragraph basically sums up my season!

INPieman

Looks like the old classic post season what the hell was I thinking trade. Time will tell

Pom

If the ankle wasn't too much of an injury, wouldn't treloar be emergency with the whole pendles baby situation? With Collingwood not naming a injury length and being secretive, could be that he is out for more than 3 weeks, does he then become a must trade? BE of 150 ish too.

Luskin Star

The only thing Treloar needs to come good is for enough people to trade him out. Thanks for helping with that Coach

Ben

he scored 147 a few weeks ago… remember why you brought him in.

INPieman

Kev your a far more tolerant man than I. I would have broken Gary from accountings Nose. If he was lucky. Tremendous work in Patch's absense

Elliot

Likelyhood Selwood plays? And also Adams!

INPieman

It's Jelwood. His leg was only broken & he's off crutches now. He's fine to suit up. Adams well it's not soft tissue related so he's fine as well

Cliffy

I'm in a bit of a pickle this week community. I have successfully managed to cover all potential donuts this week thanks to my Mid bench cover and swinging Adams into the Mids, this is my team as it currently stands:

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Marchbank, Otten, Stewart (Hibberd (NTH), Newman)
MID: Danger, TMitchell, Fyfe, JPK, Adams, SPP, Barrett, Fisher (Treloar, Beams, Balic)
RUCK: Martin, Sandi (Strandica)
FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Yeo, Nank, Butler, Parsons (Houston, Eddy)

Currently $158,300 left over and 22 trades left, I could potentially take a points hit this week and sit on my hands, but going Beams to Bont is tempting since my Mids is looking weak of late.

Thoughts on what else could be fixed guys?

Cliffy

If only I had more $$$ leftover Houston – Buddy or Heeney would've been great, but I would have to make the 1 downgrade to do that it seems.

Cliffy

Or even using Butler in that upgrade.

INPieman

If this was my team & Newman wasn't named I'd trade him, sub Adams back & bring in Meyers or Mutimer. And I would then trade Beams to Dusty. Beams & quad injury is bad news. As tempting as Bont is we need value. You'll also have money for next week

Cliffy

Cheers Pieman. Value definitely seems the go this season, we can't just go spending highly every week it seems.

INPieman

You shouldn't go spending high any week this season. Or you won't make full premium

Ja191

you won't get the bont any cheaper, averaged 123 since finals of last year. If i were you i'd get bont in now or wait a week and pick up a very cheap rocky/selwood or possibly dusty. Beams has to go in my opinion though, his injury doesn't look good

Derek

yeah you will, long season, there will be a trip up somewhere for Bont.

Rivo

Thanks Kev. When will the final teams drop? Nervous about Butler holding his spot this week…

Kev

Around 5ish, Rivo

Rivo

Thanks Kev. Plans will be thrown into the air if he is not named.

Patch

BOY do I wish Flanders was dead. Good grief heading overseas was a terrible idea from a supercoach perspective.

Kev – you're a dead set legend for stepping up to the plate. Now community – Goldstein, Stef or Big Boy – if you had to bring one in this week, which would it be?

INPieman

I'd get Goldy. With no confidence. But I don't pick anyone with confidence anymore

Darcy Kelly

Stef.
Brad really wants to play preuss and goldy so can't see goldy scoring consistantly.
Big boy your buying at his peak.
Martin your buying for a fair price.

Steeeve

What part of Preuss not getting a game after dominating in the reserves makes you think Brad really wants to play him.

INPieman

72 Hit outs to Preuss last week. That's ridiculous. Too good for VFL. His opponent can't have had any

Top Gun

Wouldnt be surprised if Preuss goes to another club to get a decent ruck gig.

Cogla13

Gee, doggies could really use someone like Preuss.

Kev

It's been a pleasure, Patch. Happy to answer the call again if you ever need it

Kyle

If goldy can get back to some form he seems like amazing value at under 500k. And scott seems to hate the other big bastard preuss.

Daniel Z

If he does, it won't be a problem for long.
There are a few clubs that could use a young, skilled ruckman.

Wizard of Ertz

i brought in Jacobs last week and was very pleased. Against Melbourne's not existent rucks he should go well again this week.

NorthMelb

Preuss will come back, I have no doubts at all. It's just a matter of when, so stef any day.

pod

Goldy. He's lifting, probably due to the Preuss factor nipping at his heals.

Derek

do you have Jacobs?

Luskin Star

Steph has the best chance of being top 3 from here to end of season

jimbo

Play T. Stewart or Hampton??
Both play at the same time so cant loophole ://

Ja191

I'd say steward but it's pretty even

Darcy Kelly

Hampton, more likely to score big while stewart is mote a lockdown defender.

jimmy

DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Howe, Marcbank, Hampton, EVW (Stewart, Newman)
MID: Rockliff, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Fyfe, Priddis, Mundy, Balic (Barret, Fisher, Fox)
RUCK: Nankervis, Sandilands (Strandica)
FWD: Macrae, JJK, Greene, Butler, Houstan, Hardwick (Parsons, Eddy)

have 24 trades and 610k in the bank what can i do to improve my team Help!!!!!!!

The Coach

Help yourself to Franklin or Heeney for Houston, and possible downgrade Fox to Myers if you want another warm body on the bench.

Kyle

Hampton to simpson
Houston to yeo

That would be what i would do this week mate. Leaves some cash for next week aswell

Tommo09

Houston and Newman OUT
Heeney and Pendles IN

Worried about Pendles though

Kev

Like Zerrett over Pendles right now

INPieman

I'd be checking the maternity ward for Mrs Pendles before pulling that trade

Wal

I'd hold off a week on Pendles

Free kick

As Seinfeld would say…Damn you NEWMAN !!!!

Tommo09

Sorry, my mistake
Since Stewart has been named it is Hampton out not Newman

I will hold Newman as he still has cash to make

Leon

Interesting juncture we are at, could split the pack with byes coming up. Convention wisdom suggests painting fence with our backline rookies but do any have half decent js? Yes as marchbank showed, it only takes one good score to push them through to their bye rounds.

Also feel that there could be a rude shock for owners of multiple non playing low price rookies like hibberd. Need to look at warm bodies for the byes.

Finally keep upgrades dry till rd 10 imo. Some tasty gc and port player will be worth their wait in gold by then. Wingard, ryder, pittard, gray, ablett etc.

Wizard of Ertz

Also got my eye on Ebert post their bye

Derek

he has overachieved already. also just had a baby, the sleeplessness will start to kick in soon

Daniel Z

I took a look at the Round 9 bye premiums last night. It was not inspiring reading.

Tyler

Zach Williams or Heath Shaw

Nick

shaw

Wal

Heater

pod

Williams for me. Heater is not the old Heater, may have a big game or two but the younger fella is the better option.

Derek

Shaw, daylight, Williams. in that order.

Luskin Star

Its taken up to the eve of tround 8 but finally some good news

HallyMate

Chuck the VC on Bont or Yeo tonight?

Nick

bont

Wal

Bont by a country mile

pod

Yeo might tag the Bont.

Pablo

Bont

krups

Bont

hedski

Dahl

Danny

Heath Shaw or Alex Rance?? Please help!!

Benjamin B

rance

Derek

i want both. Will get Shaw this week because i think he will go massive against the pies, most defenders seem to score well against Collingwood. Also without kennedy and haynes, Shaw will do all the kicking.

Rance has R12 bye, must have

Kyle

Might be a mistake this week but im taking a few risks. Avoiding the bont and bringing in zerrett for hampton. Then trading out otten for mcniece to free up a load of cash. Leaves me with 300k in the bank and next week look at going newman to JJ.

Will mean marchebank is at d6 for now which is exactly where i want him to be. Also sets me up for a few more upgrades over the byes if i bring in myers for SPP next week like im sure most others will be doing.

How is this looking community and am i crazy for going zerrett over the bont?

Wal

Crazy for going McNiece when he's not even named in their 25 imo

INPieman

Not sold on trading in a rookie that isn't playing. We have enough of them already

Derek

you might as well get O'Connor (GEEL) $102k, at least he is playing, and apparently pretty decent

hedski

I'm tossing between Berry (js but pricey), McNeice (on bubble but not named, will he play soon?) and O'Connor (first gamer…hmm).

Leeds17

Averaged 15 touches in the VFL, He's a talent but has been playing footy for about 3 months, asked a few GFC VFL watches and they are baffled he got a game.

hedski

Trap some suckers

FizzEm

Is bont with a BE of 80 odd a must right now?? Im upgrading JOM. Am i better off splashing the $$$ on a beast or find better value in a bottomed out premo… like a dusty or a zerret?

Free kick

I like Zerret, but traded Bont in 2 weeks ago and haven't looked back.. As you say he's a beast !!

JohndJames

Bont is a must in the mids,he's the new Danger.

min0008

Thoughts on Otten and Houston out for Simpson and Franklin

INPieman

Nice

Free kick

Solid trades

Wal

I can't fault those moves at all

Derek

yep, that was almost my trades last week, very happy.

Steeeve

Treloar will prove to be a great pick.

Next year. When he starts at $450,000.

Free kick

No doubt everyone will trade him only to see him tear it up in the run home.. Have to hold I rekon.

Winter

Going Hampton to Berry and Houston to Macrae which leaves me with only 63k in the bank. It's a problem because if I downgrade SPP to Myers next week I'll have 220k to upgrade Otten to a premium midfielder which will leave my like 20k off getting the Bont.

Is there any other options out there for me or just cut my losses and get someone like Rocky in?

hedski

Preuss has been elevated to 25 man squad for Sunday!!!!! Fingers crossed.
Awesome job again Kev, keeping the Simpsons fix up each week, thanks mate.

INPieman

Brad Scott has elevated him to the 25 to tease us owners! Prick

hedski

Yep still emergency I think.

NorthMelb

Need thoughts on Hannas or Steven, byes play no role In decision. I feel these are the best 2 value pick of the week. Apart from pendles.

Flubber

I've gone with Hanners at the moment. But Steven is looking very juicy.

pod

The Saints are looking good, I'd go with Steven.

callum

which rookie should i start onfield, dont have a loophole option

EVW, Stewart, Newman

Wal

Newman

Holty

I think you might find Newman not playing this week. Just wait for 6:00 tonight to confirm. Playing last game of round so he is ur loophole

Stupid Coach

Outstanding work over the past few weeks Kev. My dilemma this week is who should go out of Beams and Treloar and whether I should bring in Bont, Hanners (my preference) or Yeo. Would also like to bring Franklin in, however, with only $79k in the bank that may have to wait until next week. I am also concerned about my forward line with Eddy and Cameron stuck on the pine. My other option would be to downgrade Hannan or Butler (not sure if any fwd rookies are on the bubble and playing) or Hampton to Melican and then use the money to try and upgrade Hannan/Butler to Buddy next week.

Appreciate any thoughts/comments.

Flubber

Hold Treloar
Trade beams out for any of those 3. Bont will be top 8 for sure, Yeo is still flying high and Hanners is really cheap for what he can do. I've gone with Hanners because he's so cheap, and money is hard to come by this year.

Stupid Coach

Thanks Flubber. If I hold Treloar can't afford BONT so will have to decide between Yeo and Hanners. Yeo is cheaper and scoring better just wonder if can keep it going like I know Hanners can.

JohndJames

Any of the three would be good ins,I would go Bont and Hanners this week,Buddy or Yeo next week.

FEARTHEBEARD

Pieman you reckon I should take berry and hold onto otten for the week or go o'Connor ?

INPieman

If Berry works for your byes go for it. He's playing in the guts & his scoring has improved. Probably wait on O'connor

Fearthebeard

Issue is this though, otten and Hampton out Adams and O'Connor in or berry and Adams and only 1 out and beams gone?

INPieman

Otten & Hampton warm bodies. Beams dead body. Get rid of him

Joshua

Hampton to Berry
Houston to Yeo.
Thoughts?

Free kick

Hampton has to go and Berry a solid option given his getting a regular game and has -BE..
Yeo is the flavour of month and seems to be finding some consistency… Prefer a Doherty or Laird if you don't have them though.

Joshua

Got both

Gus

Any truth to rumour that Aaron Black will be late in this week?

Rob

Hearing the same thing – wouldn't have a clue if true – so bloody frustrating. My SC is relying on him this week!!!!

tom

Suggestions please! 370k in the bank.

Laird, Shaw, Simpson, Otten, Hampton, Stewart, EVW, Hibberd
Dangerfield, Selwood, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Beams, Steele, SPP, Taranto, Barrett, Balic
Grundy, Sandi, Preuss
Dahlhaus, Macrae, Gunston, Butler, Parsons, Hannan, Eddy, Strndica

Relton

hampton > adams/jones

Seeker

I friggin' hate Gary from accounts…

Cold_Case

Thinking hampton to berry and otten to rance. Rance mainly due to byes. Should i go shaw or simpson instead and forget byes? Any help appreciated.

pod

Rance is a good choice.

hedski

Thinking the same trades CC.

Derek

i'm not sure when the Swans team is fully announced, but i've got the guillotine nice and sharp…….. hello newman

INPieman

Who you trading him to Derek

Derek

Shaw

hedski

Got you in the JR Cashy this week Derek, I'd say good luck but you won't need it to beat my rabble.

pod

Is anyone keeping Hampton & Otten?? Sure they might bleed a little cash. The round 13 bye is a perfect time to upgrade.

Dice

i'm keeping Hampton for a maybe another 2 weeks. No matter how bad he goes he really may only drop $20K over next few weeks

Beezneez

I'm keeping them atm because they're playing unlike some others. I'm trading Parfitt for Berry to use as DPP when I trade out Hampton before his bye.. Otten for Docherty probably round 13. Otten has been playing okay but has spoiled his score by dropping a few marks which he should have swallowed.

Eskimo

I'm keeping both for this week. Adelaide will be smiting after last week. Home to Melbourne.

Tom

Word coming through that Black will be a late in for Cats everyone…

Rob

Is this legit – my SC is relying on him this week, in terms of whether I trade or not?

Dice

4 who Tom?

Fearthebeard

Yes for who!?

Nick

any news on taylor adams hand injury

Fearthebeard

Need to
Know this too!

Raging Bulls

He's all good. My mate works with his best friend and we made him call him and ask him today!! He laughed and said 'I would never miss a game for a hand – I'm 100% playing…"

Ur welcome!

INPieman

Hope he has the same attitude towards a baby

Ja191

Josh is more of a Yo Yo than Yeo Yeo this year so far, Josh can go huge or dismal, Yeo has been very consistent this season, barring a couple of games.
This is looking like Yeo's breakout year.

DEF | FWD $ 155,100

SCdonkey

This year has been the worst i have seen since i started playing Supercoach 5 years ago. Lack of cash generations, heaps of underperforming premos and Ruck conundrums.

I started the season with Guns and Rookies thinking yep, rookies will make me some cash. That didn't pan out good rookies are dropping like flies not making enough cash for premos i like to get, yet the premos i started with, are bleeding heavily.

The only thing that worked in favour so far is having Sandiwitts and Nank as cover up forward at the stsrt of the season. Looking like it's gonna stay that way for a long while or maybe even til the end of the season.

Cash generation from rookies is really hard to come by, the uncertainty we have with these rookies being presented to us each week. Just makes me cringe and sick to the stomach, the fact that they might get drop in a week or two.

I have been painting the fence and picking up bargain players, just so i don't waste my trades on rookies. I don't think I'll ever get to full premo i need to a have full team on each line, I really can't depend on rookies for cover this year. I have also been thinking of having dpp players in each line the likes of Llyod, Adams (Berry, lil Hibberd) for defense-mid cover and Dalh, Yeo and Macrea (Balic, Pickett) for foward-mid swing. I think it's a must this year, which means I'd probably end up having 6 or 7 midfield premos cause one or two dpp players will be in my midfield.

That's my plan from here on. Hopefully it works well.

Derek

I love my DPP's

SCdonkey

Yep!! DPP has helped a lot avoiding donuts in the past weeks. Need at least two DPPs in fwd and two at defense. I have the main KPP players the likes of JKK, Buddy, Simmo, Heater and Laird. It would be nice to have all the DPPs the likes of Dahl, Macrea, Yeo, Adams and Llyod.

I will be looking to have them all in my team.

JohndJames

I have four of them and plan to get the fifth next week.

Sully321

hi community,
i'm really struggling this week and don't really know what to do.
do i:
1) downgrade otten/hampton to berry/mcneice and upgrade houston to yeo
2) trade out treloar to yeo and otten to zak jones
3) treloar to yeo and then downgrade hampton leaving me with $ in the bank to upgrade Houston to a mid next week
4) downgrade houston to myers and then upgrade hampton to adams/rance/roberton/jones

thanks in advance

tom

Newman is not named.

Bitta

Worth getting in McInnes to avoid a donut? or should i just cop the 0?

Top Gun

Depends on how many trades you have and the JS of the rookie you are bringing in

tom

Best premo option this week apart from Laird, Shaw Simmo?

MickyB

Doc or adams

Derek

Rance is super cheap and has R12 bye

INPieman

I just shot Jarrod Pickett. Have to start getting rid of these non playing spuds! Byes are coming

hedski

Took ya a while Pie.

Beezneez

It's a good feeling – I am working my way through them for more cash generation – Parfitt to Berry this week for me. Got rid of Pickett a couple of weeks ago. SPS would have been a better pick.

Derek

Preuss and Newman, sorry guys, you made it to the emergency but not in the field. Gotta go.

Kev

Cheers, Pie! My whole team stinks so it was hard to tell exactly which dud rookie was reeking more than usual

Loop

I did the same.
Pickett out Fisher in
Newman out Berry in.
Just trying to get some numbers on the bench but everything else I've done this year has turned to crap so I dont feel too confident.
