Round 8 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on


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.


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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:29

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

    Nank Owner · 12/05/2017 at 14:38

    Was never worried actually.

    Steve · 12/05/2017 at 19:52

    Who is soldo

LoganJosh7 · 12/05/2017 at 14:30

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

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 14:35

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:38

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

      LoganJosh7 · 14/05/2017 at 19:28

      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…


      My supercoach season.

jockreynolds · 12/05/2017 at 14:30

OUTSTANDING Kev! Thanks very much mate – and congratulations on your fresh unclehood mate!!!

The Coach · 12/05/2017 at 14:32

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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:36

    That last paragraph basically sums up my season!

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 14:44

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

      Pom · 12/05/2017 at 16:36

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:56

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

      Ben · 12/05/2017 at 20:07

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

INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 14:33

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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:36

Likelyhood Selwood plays? And also Adams!

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 14:46

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:40

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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:48

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 14:48

      Or even using Butler in that upgrade.

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 15:02

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:06

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

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 15:13

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

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 15:05

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:50

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

Rivo · 12/05/2017 at 14:49

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

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 15:16

    Around 5ish, Rivo

      Rivo · 12/05/2017 at 15:40

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

Patch · 12/05/2017 at 15:02

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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:06

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

    Darcy Kelly · 12/05/2017 at 15:17

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:54

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

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 16:42

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

          Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 17:04

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

            Cogla13 · 12/05/2017 at 17:44

            Gee, doggies could really use someone like Preuss.

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 15:19

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

    Kyle · 12/05/2017 at 15:26

    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 · 13/05/2017 at 00:51

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:37

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

    NorthMelb · 12/05/2017 at 16:04

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

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 16:14

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

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:51

    do you have Jacobs?

    Luskin Star · 12/05/2017 at 17:50

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

jimbo · 12/05/2017 at 15:05

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

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 15:11

    I'd say steward but it's pretty even

    Darcy Kelly · 12/05/2017 at 15:18

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

jimmy · 12/05/2017 at 15:11

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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:15

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

    Kyle · 12/05/2017 at 15:28

    Hampton to simpson
    Houston to yeo

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

Tommo09 · 12/05/2017 at 15:17

Houston and Newman OUT
Heeney and Pendles IN

Worried about Pendles though

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 15:41

    Like Zerrett over Pendles right now

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 15:55

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

    Wal · 12/05/2017 at 16:01

    I'd hold off a week on Pendles

    Free kick · 12/05/2017 at 16:02

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

    Tommo09 · 12/05/2017 at 17:43

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:20

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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:40

    Also got my eye on Ebert post their bye

      Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:52

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

        Daniel Z · 13/05/2017 at 00:53

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

Tyler · 12/05/2017 at 15:23

Zach Williams or Heath Shaw

    Nick · 12/05/2017 at 15:34


    Wal · 12/05/2017 at 16:00


    pod · 12/05/2017 at 16:18

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:53

    Shaw, daylight, Williams. in that order.

Luskin Star · 12/05/2017 at 15:25

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

HallyMate · 12/05/2017 at 15:33

Chuck the VC on Bont or Yeo tonight?

    Nick · 12/05/2017 at 15:34


    Wal · 12/05/2017 at 15:57

    Bont by a country mile

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 16:12

    Yeo might tag the Bont.

    Pablo · 12/05/2017 at 16:15


    krups · 12/05/2017 at 19:26


    hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:49


Danny · 12/05/2017 at 15:36

Heath Shaw or Alex Rance?? Please help!!

    Benjamin B · 12/05/2017 at 16:42


    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:54

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:43

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 · 12/05/2017 at 15:58

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

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 15:59

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

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:58

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

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 17:20

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 18:00

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 18:43

        Trap some suckers

FizzEm · 12/05/2017 at 15:45

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:01

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

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 01:09

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

min0008 · 12/05/2017 at 15:47

Thoughts on Otten and Houston out for Simpson and Franklin

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 15:57


    Free kick · 12/05/2017 at 15:58

    Solid trades

    Wal · 12/05/2017 at 15:59

    I can't fault those moves at all

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 16:59

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

Steeeve · 12/05/2017 at 15:52

Treloar will prove to be a great pick.

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

    Free kick · 12/05/2017 at 15:59

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

Winter · 12/05/2017 at 15:56

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:00

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:44

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

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 17:12

      Yep still emergency I think.

NorthMelb · 12/05/2017 at 16:00

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:17

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

    pod · 12/05/2017 at 16:20

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

callum · 12/05/2017 at 16:04

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

EVW, Stewart, Newman

    Wal · 12/05/2017 at 16:12


    Holty · 12/05/2017 at 16:33

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:05

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:19

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 18:46

      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 · 13/05/2017 at 01:13

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

FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 16:16

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

    INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 16:45

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:53

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 17:30

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

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 16:20

Hampton to Berry
Houston to Yeo.

    Free kick · 12/05/2017 at 16:29

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:41

      Got both

Gus · 12/05/2017 at 16:26

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

    Rob · 12/05/2017 at 16:42

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

Suggestions please! 370k in the bank.

Laird, Shaw, Simpson, Otten, Hampton, Stewart, EVW, Hibberd

Cold_Case · 12/05/2017 at 16:32

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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:44

    Rance is a good choice.

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 16:41

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

    Dice · 12/05/2017 at 16:55

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 17:17

      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 · 12/05/2017 at 17:23

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

Tom · 12/05/2017 at 16:43

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

    Rob · 12/05/2017 at 16:45

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

    Dice · 12/05/2017 at 16:50

            I'm calling bullsh1t right there. Methinks it's just some trolling like Dahl would be a late out last week which proved rubbish in the end.

      Or flip a coin

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:33

    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.

SCdonkey · 12/05/2017 at 17:27

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.

    Don't Blush Baby · 12/05/2017 at 18:10

    I don't think anyone replied because we are all in the same predicament Smart trading will be crucial from now and over the byes especially , good luck SCd

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 18:23

    I love my DPP's

      Jacko · 12/05/2017 at 18:44

      Indeed I love my alone time at the computer playing with all my DPPs. It can be extremely trouser stretching so I hear ya!

      SCdonkey · 12/05/2017 at 19:43

      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 · 13/05/2017 at 01:17

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

Sully321 · 12/05/2017 at 17:31

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

    Mad Mike · 12/05/2017 at 17:35

    I'd go option 1. Hold Treloar this weekend and reassess next Friday if necessary. Better off using this week to offloading some fattened cows.

      Sully321 · 12/05/2017 at 17:46

      would you go otten to berry or hampton to mcneice?
      hampton to berry doesn't give enough cash to bring in yeo

        Mad Mike · 12/05/2017 at 18:41

        Think you have to go Otten -> Berry then. Who knows when McNiece will next play. Could be next week or two months from now. Both winter and the byes are coming and Berry is as close to a best 22 lock as you can get for a sub $200K rookie right now.

        Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 19:19

        Forget McNiece … he will go back to rookie land when Laberde is right … probs R14

Paige · 12/05/2017 at 17:39

Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Hampton, Marchbank (Newmann, Hibberd)
Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Macrae, Pepper, Barrett, Balik (Beams, O'Meara, Swallow)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Nank, Buddy, Roughy, Dahl, Taranto, Butler (Eddy, Parsons)
183K in bank – 23 trades
Trade in options please, O'Meara – Berry, Via Adams? good move?
Then another trade?? Seriously need some advice.

    hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:50

    Via Hibberd better, even better straight trade keep Berry in guts to swing with Hibberd, upgrade Swallow.

      Wayne · 12/05/2017 at 19:18

      Upgrade Swallow or get rid of Hampton? Best Option for Swallow?
      Merrett, Yeo, Martin?

        hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:29

        Hmm, are you Paige?
        Merrett, Paige/Wayne.
        Or Hampton to Rance, Paige/Wayne.

tom · 12/05/2017 at 17:43

Newman is not named.

Bitta · 12/05/2017 at 17:45

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

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 17:52

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

tom · 12/05/2017 at 17:47

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

    MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 18:09

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 18:25

    Rance is super cheap and has R12 bye

    Beezneez · 12/05/2017 at 18:05

    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 · 12/05/2017 at 18:26

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

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 18:32

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

    James · 12/05/2017 at 18:38

    Whoya bringing in Pie? Mutimer, Berry or Myers?

      INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 18:57

      Mutimer. I liked the look of him last week. But guaranteed to be dropped next week now I've done that!

        James · 12/05/2017 at 19:14

        I reckon it's worth the punt mate fwiw. Handy bye too if he can play out the next 5+ weeks.

          INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 19:57

          The bye is the motive. Trying to balance it all out. Hope he keeps playing till then

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 18:44

    Everyone questioned when i traded him out to Fisher
    I'd seen enough of both
    Fisher back great news. Moo away Caleb 2.0

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:53

      Fishers covering Treloar this week, probably only lose 20 points…

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 18:58

        If Fisher can score 74 that would be better than Treloar in current form Hedski

        INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 19:00

        Was funny Hedski. My young fella Ben when he saw Treloar was out put Fisher on the ground for him & said to me "they score about the same anyway"

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 19:03

          Gold that
          How is the young fellas team travelling?
          Putting the old man to the sword? 🙂

            INPieman · 12/05/2017 at 20:05

            He had 2 nasty weeks where the gods got him & took him from 40th to over 3K. His trades backfired badly. He went JOM to swallow thinking it was a brilliant move. It wasn't. But he's recovered. He watched me frothing at Gary's 210 & brought him in for Beams last week. Didn't get what he was hoping for. He had some money this week & decided to trade Hampton to Laird. I agree with that call with a big thumbs up. First of his trades I agreed with. He's back just inside the top 1K & he's still got me covered ATM. I'll be taking his advice next preseason much more seriously. He nailed some serious gold

              hedski · 12/05/2017 at 20:46

              Lairds a great call

              Randomcliche2 · 13/05/2017 at 01:47

              Go son of Pieman!

          hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:31

          Smart lad.

    Loop · 13/05/2017 at 05:46

    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.

Cam · 12/05/2017 at 17:51

How community, would love some advice trading Houston out but who to get Yeo or Heeney?

Yeo scares me had him last year and got burnt bad is almost on the never again list but gee he is tempting me. Thoughts?

    Beezneez · 12/05/2017 at 18:03

    Had the same dilemma – dodged a bullett with Yeo in the past but his ceiling is higher and from all reports he has been playing good footy in a slightly different role. Fingers crossed I'm bringing him in. Heeney is still a good trade in option and offers better value if you are looking at options later on..

    MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 18:08

    Yeo cos of bye round

      Kev · 12/05/2017 at 18:30

      I just can't do it. Three times I've had the opportunity to get Yeo in and I just know when I do the real Yeo-Yo will emerge

        RobDog · 12/05/2017 at 19:05

        Is ok, I've bought Yeo in cos' of the bye round structure, so we'll know after this week if he's going to turn spud again. It's my gift.

MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 17:57

Should I get myers or sheer in a downgrade or any defence rookies? Basically who is best rookie this week to get. Not worried about points more job security.

Also any truth to the rumour adams injured at training today?

    MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 18:01

    Also how many weeks are treloar and beams expected to be out for?

      Derek · 12/05/2017 at 18:27

      Both expected back next week, unless there is news not being shared

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:06

      You can look forward to another 73 and him losing another 35 grand when he gets back.

hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:02

Berry (JS – but pricey), McNiece (not named but on bubble, will he play eventually?) or O'Connor (1st gamer, big raps but first gamer?)
Which one?

    MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 18:08

    Id go berry

    Matt · 12/05/2017 at 18:14

    Berry imo. DPP and good JS.

    hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:23

    Cheers lads, the extra $70k in the kicker would be nice tho……

      Kev · 12/05/2017 at 18:25

      If McNeice/O'Connor will be your D8 and your D7 is playing going the cheaper option is a calculated risk

        hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:57

        D6/7 Stewart and Newman (post trades)

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 18:29

    Berry isn't that good.

    O'Conner needs to play 3 to make cash, but he is only $102k. Seriously cheap and playing.

    I would look at Fisher

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 18:56

      Have Fisher Derek, covering Treloar this week.

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:09

      Seems your playing with a bit of subterfuge regarding Berry Derek, loved him coming good but not recommending him now people wanna jump on….hmm.

        derek · 12/05/2017 at 19:14

        the difference is that because i have owned him, i have watched him closely, he is slowly coming good, but oh dear, he got caught holding the ball alot in his first few games. he does tackle ok. But for $170k, seriously, there has to be better options.

          hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:35

          I wish there was better options gotta trade trade trade this week tho, still deciding.
          (Been watching to)

            FEARTHEBEARD · 12/05/2017 at 19:49

            hedski what you end up doing? still tossing it up myself haha

              hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:57

              Nothing tonight Feathers, pretty sure I'll go Hampton/Otten to Berry/Rance. Bye friendly and leaves me a few more $.
              Was close to going Hampton to McNiece/O'Connor and Houston to JJK but no slash left over, I'm sure I'll regret that when Joshie kicks 8 tonight.

          SCdonkey · 12/05/2017 at 19:52

          Wish there was other options Derek. But Berry's DPPs and JS is just too appealing to pass by and still have lots of cash to make considering he's played 5 games already and still at a low price of $170.

            hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:59

            Agreed Donk.

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2017 at 18:47

    Same boat as me tossing up berry and hope
    He makes 300k+ or take the gamble on O'Connor and hope he gets a few more games and 70k+ in bank

    Mervin · 12/05/2017 at 18:52

    Think you have to go Berry out of that bunch. JS is absolutely golden right now and even though he is no sure thing to get a game each week I would definitely take his chances over McNiece and O'Connor right now.

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 18:59

    I've risked O'Connor as it enables me to go Houston > Yeo. Then I can work on my defence next week.

Upgrading Otten to a premo, I'm a saints supporter and so a little biased towards Roberton but should I be upgrading for someone like Simpson, Rance or Shaw whom are cheaper at the moment?

    MickyB · 12/05/2017 at 18:13

    No, id go roberton

    Morphin · 12/05/2017 at 18:27

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 18:47

    Go the pod
    He has the form
    carslie back has freed him up to be a running defender. Role change.

      Ben · 12/05/2017 at 19:13

      Ok, thanks for the advice.

Richard · 12/05/2017 at 18:16

Trade out Treloar?

    Kev · 12/05/2017 at 18:28

    Nah. Not yet anyway. If he's still crapping his dacks when your mids are full premo maybe then look at getting rid of him

    Goat · 12/05/2017 at 18:53


    SF4 · 12/05/2017 at 19:31

    No, the break should be good for him.

1. Otten > Adams Hampton >Lloyd
2. Otten/Hampton > Lloyd. Houston>Yeo
3. Otten/Hampton>Lloyd. Parfitt>Myers

Also, get rid of hampton or llyod? I am literally lost this wel

SirSamuel016 · 12/05/2017 at 18:33

Copping a duck egg this week because Balic is out with illness and I've decide to trade Otten and Hampton out for Adams and Lloyd. This is the right choice in the long run, right?

    SCDamien · 12/05/2017 at 18:39

    For the scores that Lloyd is producing, and still be under 500k is very good. Averaging 98 and be under 500k is a bargain.

luke · 12/05/2017 at 18:33

Who is the best mid upgrade under $580k

    Jasen · 12/05/2017 at 18:38

    Cripps, Titch

      One Touch Wonder · 12/05/2017 at 19:09

      Priddis. Will score massive tonight. Put the VC on him, you won't regret it.

    SF4 · 12/05/2017 at 19:31

    Cripps, dusty, zerrett, Pendles and titch.

Juzzy · 12/05/2017 at 18:47

Priddis flying under the radar as he generally does at this time of year.

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 18:50

    Definately mate, Eagles doing better than people expected so far too…helps. Priddis a good 3.2 % of Teams.

    One Touch Wonder · 12/05/2017 at 19:08

    He is my SHARK MOVE for this week. I have made him VC tonight. Feeling very confident that he will average 125+ over the next 5 weeks. WCE have three tough home games against Dogs GWS & Cats. Priddis will rack up a massive amount of tackles. OUT Treloar: IN Priddis = SHARK MOVES

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:11

      I made a Megaladon Shark move this week, or it could end up being a Remora move haha

      hedski · 12/05/2017 at 19:11

      Thought you got him and Sauce last week OTW?

        Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:25

        Yeah Hedski, I seem to remember that too, maybe he changed his mind last minute.

          One Touch Wonder · 12/05/2017 at 20:23

          Had to change me mind at last minute. Holes everywhere last week. Had to bring Simpson into the team and didn't have enough cash to get Priddis. Went Hannebery instead because as another SHARK MOVE i started the year with NO SWANS players. Its scary how good my team is starting to look.

            Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 20:27

            I think we all need to watch out for you…Mr Big Shark!

              INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 06:07

              OTW is on good terms with himself

    Free Kick · 12/05/2017 at 21:24

    Priddis flys under the radar every year… He's just about a guaranteed 100 every week..

Going Rance over Shaw…

TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 18:51

Well done Kev and congrats
First time for a while feeling OK going into this round despite treloar out.
feels good to have some green to splash.
Team selections make such a difference.

Jimmy · 12/05/2017 at 18:51

With Treloar out I have no midfield cover if Pendles doesn't play, but just occurred to me I can move Dahl/macrae/yeo into middle via DPP and field parsons instead. Would suggest others do the same if needed and able to reduce the chance of copping a donut!

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:30

    DPP's are very valuable Jimmy, good job!

    hedski · 12/05/2017 at 20:02

    Better do it quick mate they are all playing now!!!

iLoveNMFC · 12/05/2017 at 18:56

Yeo and Martin/J Kelly?
Heeney and Rockliff?

First is much better for bye structure but second probably with more scoring potential.

    Spanner · 12/05/2017 at 19:58

    1 with Dusty

Winter · 12/05/2017 at 18:56

Field Berry or Stewart?

Jezabel · 12/05/2017 at 18:59

Who to trade for Berry? Hampton who has been selected but has a high BE or Newman who must be close but with a low BE. And who play on field, Stewart, Hampton if I trade or Berry if I do trade.
I hate SC sometimes

    Flubber · 12/05/2017 at 19:01

    Trade Hampton
    Field Stewart

      Jezabel · 12/05/2017 at 19:27

      Thanks Flubber. Will probably do that.

DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 19:01

Sub 550k Mids

Had all these guys in my practice 2nd trade. Will list in order by my opinion of POD + value for pts

Kelly can't believe he is only 504k has been in break out territory with super consistent scores and think bigger scores have yet to be made from him.
Merrett My pic of the round but also most expensive. Has bottomed out and he has been very conistant in getting 30+ touches this year.
Stevens I have never had the bloke in my side over the years and never realy felt I missed much. Good POD this year though. R11 bye hmm
Cripps real cheap but high ceiling?
JPK BE of 140 is keeping me away for one more week but also that R11 bye is not nice.

Gone with Kelly so far just been too consistent and at a price tag of 504k I can't ignore the bloke anymore. Not saying he is going to crank 110+ from this point on but he will help me go full premo by picking up cheap gems like him along the way. Franklin last week was a huge win

    Finnius123 · 12/05/2017 at 23:03

    Kelly is an interesting one. He is very consistent – but I want him to punch out a 140 before I pick him

Billy · 12/05/2017 at 19:04

Merret or Hannebery?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 19:06

    SF4 · 12/05/2017 at 19:28

    Hanners seems to have gotten back on track and despite all the criticism I think he has been the swans best midfielder this year.

DefyingMadness · 12/05/2017 at 19:05

On the Brisbane injury recovery report they said that beams is recovering extremely well and will be up for selection next week. Should I still trade him out as I have no other major problems

    DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 19:08

    Guy could break down again this year only R9 when he returns
    Up to you mate but you helped him so imo just give him another go when he comes back

      DavidSA · 12/05/2017 at 19:08

      Held him*

      DefyingMadness · 12/05/2017 at 19:26

    Docherty and Bont.

      NickMacMan · 12/05/2017 at 19:16

        Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:24

        He said he'd leave the game…midgame if his wife goes into labour so..a bit risky this week.

          NickMacMan · 12/05/2017 at 19:31

          Both have rd 11 bye though, should that be considered?

            Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:55

            Depends I guess on whether you're playing for total rank or just to win Leagues, Yeo is also a good option, as TOPHAWK said.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 19:39

    The Doc and Yeo for me.

RobDog · 12/05/2017 at 19:11

Anyone else having a few gremlins in their SuperCoach this year?

I've had it a few times now, where I change the team around and log out, then when I come back and open it up again later, the moves are reversed????

For instance, tonight I have changed the 'E' from Newman to Stewart, move pages to look at Players, come back to Team and hey presto, Newman is Emergency again???

Has happened about 6 times tonight, and had also happened a few times in past weeks. Will catch me out one day.

Anyone else having this issue??

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:17

    No haven't seen that Robdog, but it's certainly not unusual for supercoach to have glitches sometimes, just make sure you refresh and check it before you log out.

    SF4 · 12/05/2017 at 19:27

    The servers tend to be pretty bad when there is a game about to start or during a game.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 19:37

    Stick fat mate. I am going Yeo. Might even put the VC on him to celebrate!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:41

      Was hard to make the call TOPHAWK…never thought I would …but did this week, I was one of the ones, writing him off earlier in the season.

James · 12/05/2017 at 19:27

Otten > Bont (via Hubbard DPP)
D Swallow > Yeo

Yeo will be swung into my forwardline next week when I cut Butler. But I'm worried about his consistency long term so am contemplating just going for a pure midfielder…..Could Steven finish top 10? Otherwise who is value? Martin? Cotchin? Or could just get Dahlhaus instead

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:39

    I think you answered your own question James, Steven is a gun and gets heaps of the ball, so a very good option if you're a Yeo no go, Dusty, Cotchin, also good picks, Dahlhaus has been rock solid so far.
    Other fallen(cheap)premiums you might be considering, check their records, and don't choose anyone averaging less than 100.

      James · 12/05/2017 at 19:43

      Thanks for the input.

      Is there anyone you'd lean towards, out of the mentioned named?

        Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:46

        I really really wanted to get Steven in this week, his price for output is a steal, but I couldn't ignore Yeo and how he's going this year, so I reluctantly chose Yeo over Steven…and I'm a long time Saints supporter. 🙂

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 19:35

Whack the VC on YEO on his debut tonight? (In my team) I am wary of the Friday night VC curse mind you. It always seems to bite you on the ar-se. I rarely do it, as most coaches fall into the trap of instant VC gratification. Thinking about it. What have I got to lose? Picked 7 VC duds this year anyway.

    Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 19:44

    For me im trying to decide out of yeo and Bont

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 19:44

    Hasn't bitten me on the arse so far, and I usually VC as early as possible, do you have Bont TOPHAWK?

    If you've already picked 7 duds, go for it, take the risk.

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 19:58

      I dont have the Bont YET. I am hoping to grab him after the byes at a lower price. He is very pricey and might rise a bit more, but I am confident I can snare him for the business end of the season. Gotta watch the cash when the rooks arent makin any cash.

        TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 19:59

        Yeo VC. Damn! Let's do this.

Also, should I trade out Houston as he's not been selected this week?

As a community service I will tell the community that I traded out Andy Otten.

    Bells · 12/05/2017 at 22:45

    He did NUTHIN. Will probably score 130 though.

Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 20:53

Is yeo even on the field?

Why oh why did I bring him in

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 20:55

    Ditto. Bloody YO YO!

      Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 20:58

      Averaging 114 wtf is he doing tonight?

        Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:01

        He must think he playing at the mcg. Fir all he's done he might as well be at the g

          Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:03

          Woohoo he just got a kick!!! At least I have vc on the bont

            YEOYEO · 12/05/2017 at 22:57

            Yep Got more points then the bont whyd u vc the bont lol

              YEOYEO · 12/05/2017 at 22:57


            YEO! · 13/05/2017 at 00:14

            How'd that work out for ya lol

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:04

    Jeez he's almost been invisible for the first half, hope he can turn it around and I won't regret not bringing Steven in instead.

    Cold_Case · 12/05/2017 at 21:07

    Yeo has never scored over 80 against bulldogs

      YEO YEO · 12/05/2017 at 23:32

      Might want to revise this comment it looks a little outdated

        Cold_Case · 13/05/2017 at 06:38

        Is now! Ol Yeo may have turned the corner well and truly.

    Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:15

    To think I brought him in so I would have to play Hannan on field start to wish I still had hannan

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 23:14

      How about now?…haha

        Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 23:38

        Great trade in. Lol.

hedski · 12/05/2017 at 20:56

Gotta get me some Macrae round 12.

    Neverweaken · 12/05/2017 at 23:16

    Went Bont over McCrae this week. Grrr

    Swans2012 · 12/05/2017 at 23:30

    Agreed hedski

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 23:41

    Next week for me.

    Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 08:01

    Went Yeo over McCrae a few weeks ago. Can't complain there

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/05/2017 at 11:03

      Yeo this week
      macrae next
      Building my fwd line first.
      I see them as the worst rookies to have on the ground
      So will play a rook mid on ground and pick off the discount mids when they appear.

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 21:04


Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 21:08

Why do I always curse my premium trade ins? First Martin now Yeo. At least Bont is making me happy

    Holty · 12/05/2017 at 21:16

    Same Josh. Stef Martin for me and Yeo. Was considering bringing the Bont in but didnt want to upset the community as he will probably underperform as soon as i do

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:42

      No one has mentioned, Dahlhaus's spudly effort of 28 so far…uuugh

Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:09

This whole season's Fubar is all your fault Holty haha

    Holty · 12/05/2017 at 21:13

    Lol. The only saving grace for me is most premos have been under performing this year.

Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:09

Can you let me know who you are planning on bringing in next week so I can avoid them?

    Holty · 12/05/2017 at 21:11

    I am also considering Adams this week and maybe Laird next week. If you dont have either id strongly advise not getting them

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:15


      Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:18

      I have both already please don't screw up their strong starts to the year. Get docherty I don't have him and would love a nice ce price drop before getting him

        Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 21:20

        Can't believe I got yeo because I didn't want to play hannan on field. Hannans 35 points are looking good to me at the moment

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:41

      Has the Coach changed his role tonight?

        Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 22:17

        He's had a resurgence on 75 early last quarter

          Holty · 12/05/2017 at 22:38

          I love you Elliot

            Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 23:15

            All good now Holty, the Holty curse is broken.

TheGreatBozza · 12/05/2017 at 21:17

Order of importance to offload:
Houston, Beams, Otten, Hampton

I've got enough to field 22 but that 22 includes Fisher, Parsons & Hannan

    Free kick · 12/05/2017 at 21:19

    Cash in on Beams.. His quad is stuffed… Then Hampton, will bleed some cash now..

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 21:18

Should have traded JJK in, he's looking lively

Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 21:23

Fraser McInnes 45 .. out scoring most rookies this season .. probably won't get a kick from here on..
WTF is Dahl doing??? JJ still short of SC Premo status.. Priddis going very well…
just need JJK to kick straight .. could rip it up

    Top Gun · 13/05/2017 at 07:32

    JJK without a shadow of doubt is the best contested mark in the league. Wouldn't quite say that about his kicking.

Joshuw · 12/05/2017 at 21:29

Alright I'm gonna try and be positive, hundred point half lets go Yo

Don't Blush Baby · 12/05/2017 at 21:30

I had Yeo for the early rounds as I thought he was value and then traded up to the Bont, I wish it was as easy as that all the time as I've made more poor decisions than good ones , Ha

    Don't Blush Baby · 12/05/2017 at 22:41

    Not the smartest thing I've posted , but you get that on the big jobs

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 23:00

      Haha, yeah in hindsight, they're both pretty good really.

Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 21:32

On another note rumours Treloar has had surgery or that his groins are far worse than first thought…hmmm

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 21:35

Guys last week Yeo was on 33 at HF and finished on 124. I'm expecting 110+ YEO LETS GOO

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 21:44

    That's it Josh…stay positive mate! Go Yeo yeo..

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:07

    If he could get to 120 from here, i'd be very happy!

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 22:14

    Good call Josh. I'm more the emotional supercoach player. Lol.

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 22:26

    Did i tell you how much of a fan i am of Yeo. Hahaha!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:28

      90 so far…not a disaster I guess.

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:30

      Be nice if the Bont could do some good things in the next 5 mins.

hedski · 12/05/2017 at 21:40

Mutimer outscoring Dahl…

HB prince · 12/05/2017 at 21:53


Thinking of trading Hampton and Treloar for J Lloyd and J Stevens/Rocky thoughts?

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:39

    Read the other 1179 posts asking exactly the same thing.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 00:33

    Go for it.

Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 22:05

I think Dahl is on leave…

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 22:12

Yeo is actually lifting very nicely

    DefyingMadness · 12/05/2017 at 22:14

    Yep, he had me scared for a second hopefully he can scrap 95+

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 22:18

3.6 for JJK geeeeeezzz

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:22

    That ain't worth whining about, what about Dahlhaus and Yeo…..aaaah!

      Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 22:33

      Yeah I don't own JJK just sayin, would be a monster score if he converted. Yeah got Dahlhaus and Yeo. Elliot is going pretty well, Dahl not so much

        Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:36

        Dahlhaus has major spudded it…mucho disappointo.

Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:20

It's the stupid haircut…he's doing better now at least.

Noremac · 12/05/2017 at 22:34

Yeo has cracked the ton. Unbelievable I am convince he is a changed man in the past he wouldn't have touched the ball in the second half after that start

DefyingMadness · 12/05/2017 at 22:36


    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 22:42

    Redeemed himself pretty well, 110! yowza! shame about his midget buddy Dahlhaus…64, very underwhelming.

The BONT · 12/05/2017 at 22:39

Take Bonts score of 101 or go with Danger

    KSinny · 12/05/2017 at 22:41


Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 22:39

Hey community,
Should i take Yeo's Score as C or take a punt with Murphy or Danger?

    KSinny · 12/05/2017 at 22:41

    Danger 100% 110 not enough for captain

      Jim_bob321 · 12/05/2017 at 22:41

      So u believe Danger will outscore Murph

        adifferentKev · 12/05/2017 at 22:48

        I'd take the punt on Murph. He's over the knee injury and danger is still sore. Saints might send weller to him early but cripps, gibbs and sps will get off the chain if they do

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 22:40

Should I take Yeo's VC score?

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 22:48

    Got Mutimer too.

      Eskimo · 12/05/2017 at 22:58

      i'd nearly take the vc on Yeo, the way it's been going. Tough decision. See if it's raining.

    Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 23:39


    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 00:51

    No Toppa,you haven't picked one yet. 😉

Top Gun · 12/05/2017 at 22:40

McInnes might be a good rookie to bring in next week

    Kev+1 · 12/05/2017 at 22:52

    Smashed it in Jlt and great dpp. on my watchlist as an upgrade for Treloar or Dadlebury

Eskimo · 12/05/2017 at 22:41

One quarter from Yeo have the super coach gods relented? I cant believe how the little fella Dale didn't score much more than Mortimer. Poor fella he tried soooo hard. what a game. Da-house oh well everyone has him so no matter.

    Eskimo · 12/05/2017 at 22:43


Lazza · 12/05/2017 at 22:42

I had JJK .. and bloody Dahlhaus …
Yeo as low inflation then a burst .. he's the goods

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 22:54

    JJK tonned up can't complain but i feel you on dalhaus..

      Hubba · 12/05/2017 at 23:07

      Most people have dahl. Wouldn't worry about his low score too much dude

    Derek · 12/05/2017 at 23:07

    everyone has Dalhaus!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 23:09

      True…bloody midget spud lol

andy · 12/05/2017 at 22:51

Take Bonts 100 or roll dice on Rocky/ Danger?

    Eskimo · 12/05/2017 at 22:54

    play dangerously!

    Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 22:56

    C on rocky

Ja191 · 12/05/2017 at 22:55

C on zerrett or dangerfield, reluctantly wanna say zerrett

Derek · 12/05/2017 at 23:01

Dogs hacked it forward a lot in last quarter, Yeo was the loose man in defence which let him have 7 interceptions in the last Quarter. He was in the right place at the right time. Went from about 58sc at 3/4 time.

Macrea was also massive in last quarter

    Leeds17 · 13/05/2017 at 00:07

    It wasn't luck though Yeo reads the ball very well in those instances… His role is pretty great for SC it's like Heath Shaw with a few CB attendances each quarter thrown in.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 23:04

Geez what a second half from the yo man

Finished ahead of bont, smitch, JJK, Macrae and pridda.

21 at half time. Fair second half.

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 23:05

The YEOWIE man has delivered.

Poetry in motion.

All class.

    Tyruddanaut · 13/05/2017 at 08:58

    Massive last quarter. Should've gone with him instead of the Bont

Derek · 12/05/2017 at 23:06

I want to get rid of Preuss and Newman, but they both did make the emergency list, so they are close. Both have cash to make. It would be to paint the fence, but who is the rookie option?

I might just hold them and go Hampton to Shaw.

What to you reckon fellas, Thanks Fellas

    Russty_ · 12/05/2017 at 23:11

    Dunno if close is good enough for me, think I'll get rid of Preuss next week for a dpp ruck and bank some cash, and maybe even Newman out for someone, seems like they're both out of favour.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 23:17

    Hampton to Shaw. Easy.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 12/05/2017 at 23:22

    There isn't much in the way of rooks unless you want to go early on one.

    If u have Witts may need pruess next week for cover surely gets a game soon maybe even this weekend.

    Newman has stolen Titchs book on how to p1ss off horse.
    Frustrating as he is emergency each week

    As nothing much around this weekend for what it's worth im holding Newman ill probably go down to O'Conner b4 his bye. Have a look at the irish lad next couple of weeks.

      Derek · 12/05/2017 at 23:52

      There will be Myers next week.

      Hampton to Shaw with $100 left over!

    Swans2012 · 12/05/2017 at 23:29

    Hampton to shaw Derek
    The others are next weeks problems

      Derek · 12/05/2017 at 23:53

      I'm thinking that is best idea. Make it next weeks problem

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 00:54

    You should trade Berry Derek.

Joe · 12/05/2017 at 23:17

Fyfe or Danger captain?

    Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 23:41


DefyingMadness · 12/05/2017 at 23:17

Not sure if I take Yeo's score or chuck it on Danger/ Zerret

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2017 at 23:30

    Who cares. You own Yeo

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 08:36

      The landscape has changed. Take it

Joshua · 12/05/2017 at 23:34

Is docherty a sneaky C option? Or just play it safe with danger?

    Goat · 12/05/2017 at 23:42

    Danger not very safe IMHO. Waiting for a form reversal

    Pman · 13/05/2017 at 00:16

    Given how Danger is playing of late it could prove to be a great shark move….roll the dice I say!

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 00:55

    I will have the VC on Doch cos Derek doesn't have him 😉

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 08:36

      Haha Hedski. League shark move

Shizzer · 13/05/2017 at 00:11

Houston n Hampton/Newman out
Heeney n berry/o Connor in??

Pman · 13/05/2017 at 00:15

Will be punting Hampton for J Berry for cash generation which means I have to play one of Berry or Stewart on field. Who does the community think I should have on ground and why he's likely to score more? Any thoughts appreciated…

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 08:07

    Both Berry & Stewart are about 60 players on face value. But Berry is named in the guts & scores are improving. Simple choice

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 09:40

    I'll be looping them with Newman

      JoannaH · 13/05/2017 at 09:52

      Can I loop Berry and Stewart with Higgins, NM? Haven't done the loop before and I am a bit nervous in case I stuff up.

        hedski · 13/05/2017 at 10:04

        Put Berry emergency on bench, Hibberd on field, if Berry scores say 60+ leave Hibberd and you get Berry's score, if he scores low put Stewart on instead of Hibberd.

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 11:44

    I think Berry might be worth a crack. He is a big strong boy and with no Robinson in the guts they might give him a bit more midfield time. Also Beams out, could get a good run in guts.

    Same goes for Barrett.

JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 00:29

I have never worried about the byes usually just try and get my best team together,this year I thought I should do something different and actually try and plan for them.but I'm not sure how to go about it.Is is better to throw a round and be solid in the other ones or try to be even across them all.I am interested in how the experienced players go about it.Any help would be much appreciated.

    Randomcliche2 · 13/05/2017 at 02:08

    Leagues, throw one. But if there is one cash league of importance check who you are playing and see how you match up atm. i.e. premos out per round. If overall you have to much more balanced to try and jam the best rookie scores in each week to your 18. I'm aiming to run circa 14+ keepers each week + good rookies like GHS, Marchy, Witts, plus which ever rookies are left in my team by then.

      JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 13:45

      Thanks for the feedback Randomcliche2,I had a look at my R11 players and it was like I had already thrown it.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 07:59

    If your playing for rank an even spread is the way to go. I've bye planned for the last 3 years & ploughed through the ranks & into the top 1K each time. Last year I went from 1800 to 210th through the byes, I scored between 1900-1950 each week. Typically you will go past about 80% in front of you if you bye plan & luck goes your way. But the consequences of an even spread is running into teams that are stacked in a particular round & you can lose league matches with a respectable score. If your playing for a cash league only then stack up in 2 rounds & throw the other one

      JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 13:55

      Thanks for the reply INPieman,after looking at my bye rounds if I decide to go with the even spread I might have to start looking at players that don't have their bye at R11,since going on the amount of players that I have on the field for R11,it looks like I have already thrown it.

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 11:05

    i worry about the first week of the byes a lot

    Get that week ok and having 3 trades a week over the byes usually sorts the rest out

      JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 14:00

      I'm with you Derek,I am very worried about R11,if I can fix that up and have trades on hand afterwards I should be able to manage it.

dSaSPatSfcB · 13/05/2017 at 03:12

He copied it from O'dell Beckham Jnr in the NFL. That's not to say his looks any better. Go Pats.

Rick Grimes · 13/05/2017 at 03:59

Cocked up my vc loophole and now I'm stuck with Bonts 99 as c. FML. Let this be a warning not to drink and SC.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 07:52

    I've been campaigning for years that you should be breathalysed before a trade is completed. If you drink & SC your a bloody idiot

      Tyruddanaut · 13/05/2017 at 09:06

      Authorized by the Australian Government, Canverra

      hedski · 13/05/2017 at 09:43

      I wouldn't be allowed to trade ever.

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 08:40

    I saw that Rick!! I could not believe my eyes mate. Time for a roasting from Tophawk! (just kidding) Fortunately you made the error on the Bont and not Dahlhaus. The damage is not too bad. Good luck for the rest of the round mate.

    Randomcliche · 13/05/2017 at 13:01

    I nearly had danger into rocky till I saw the colours were highlighted wrong in the league match up of my opponent, no wait mine were wrong! #lucky

TheGreatBozza · 13/05/2017 at 08:05

Anyone know Dusty's BE?
I'm thinking of holding Beams a week and going Hampton > Berry, Houston > Heeney.

Then next week go Beams to Dusty as it suits my bye structure while getting another price decrease Fromm dusty


    gator59 · 13/05/2017 at 08:15

    Dusty's BE is 124 atm

      TheGreatBozza · 13/05/2017 at 08:31

      Thanks Gator

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 08:34

    Like the Houston to Heeney trade. Ripper. Round 11 bye prevents him ATM for me

Stupid Coach · 13/05/2017 at 08:58

Currently have VC on Pendles from last week and C on Danger. However, thinking of changing the VC to Roo or making Danger VC and putting the C on Fyfe.

Have already made one trade (Beams to Yeo) leaving me with 22. Don't have much cash to play with. Is it worth using a trade this week to downgrade Hampton to EVW or Berry to set myself for next week or wait til next week when I can paint the fence and McInnes will be on the bubble.

Appreciate any advice.

    Randomcliche · 13/05/2017 at 12:56

    Yes do the extra trade,

Jim_bob321 · 13/05/2017 at 09:12

Stuff this going Docherty C… let's see how this turns out

    Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 09:16

    Like it man, hope he goes massive

      Jim_bob321 · 13/05/2017 at 09:20

      I mean Danger seems relatively injured and Murph is probably gonna get tagged so
      Also Dochers is apparently playing on the wing as well

        Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 09:32

        Hope smurph handles it well, got the vc on him

    I am doing the same. If anything he is almost guaranteed a 90+. Also has a huge ceiling. HIstorically scores well against the saints – also really enjoys playing at Etihad. Shark move, but the lack of dependency in our premium mids mean we might as well take a punt. I was seriously hoping that Bont would go big last night so I didn't have this issue.

    Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 10:11

    I'm going with titch. Can't trust any of danger, Selwood, Fyfe, pendles, JPK at the moment

Westy · 13/05/2017 at 10:12

Do we chuck Berry into our team?

Sorry – had to do a Chuck Berry pun.

    Willow · 13/05/2017 at 11:14

    Lol nice the Big V all the way, speaking of the big V I whacked it on the Yeo man last night but looking to go bigger, I have one trade looking at a round 12 Round 13 bye player for around the $500-$600 mark, my options are Tich, Selwood which worries me huge BE of 180 and under an injury cloud, Cotchin or Dusty, like the look of Neale but to pricey. Hopefully the SuperCoach gods are not as ruthless this week, but just remember supercoaches his rath is bestowed unto all, good luck chuck (Berry)

      Westy · 13/05/2017 at 23:14

      Cotchin would be the POD of that list?

HB prince · 13/05/2017 at 12:16

Hanners or J Steven??

Randomcliche · 13/05/2017 at 12:41

So should I
1. Run spp as emergencies cover for pendlebaby, or
2. Loophole hardwick and parsons

    Randomcliche · 13/05/2017 at 12:50

    I have u til the saints game to decide….

Jim_bob321 · 13/05/2017 at 14:48

Bloody Hell last minute change to from Docherty to Murphy…

Josh · 13/05/2017 at 17:03

Should I:
1. Otten to Merrett with 54k in the bank
2. Otten and Hampton to Melican and Neale with 105k left
3. Otten and Hampton to Melican and Merrett with 184K left

    Pman · 13/05/2017 at 17:12

    Option 3 I reckon as Leale is too expensive now and Merrett won't be cheaper than what he currently is and having $184K in the bank gives you better options next week,

Pman · 13/05/2017 at 17:14

I had the E on Berry and he scored 71 which is decent enough so with that in mind do I bench Stewart and take the 71 or roll the dice that he'll beat it?

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 18:12

    Take the 71.

      Pman · 13/05/2017 at 18:40

      Yeah think I will, better to be safe than sorry. Cheers…

Finnius123 · 13/05/2017 at 17:16

Captain Docherty for the win!!!

First good skipper decision I've made all year

    Randomcliche2 · 14/05/2017 at 00:26

    Well played.

George · 13/05/2017 at 18:10

Your kidding me- Pendelbury looks like he's leaving at the start of the 3rd to fly to Melb??

    George · 13/05/2017 at 18:10


    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:26

    False alarm, hopefully he's coming good now too.

Montana · 13/05/2017 at 22:34

Pendlebury may as well stayed home because he was hopeless today. A professional footballer and he contemplated going home at half time if need be. Don't worry about your mates and all this stuff about being a team game? Absolute rubbish. I don't have him in my SC team because I selected Treloar instead!!!!!
There will be readers who will be up in arms about this comment but it is my opinion.

    Jon · 13/05/2017 at 22:41

    Yeah, you're a dick Montana. You called it. There is nothing more important than your kids. All these heroes calling out pendles for his decision – shout out for choosing what's important in life.

      Goat · 13/05/2017 at 22:57

      Forget it's football for a moment. What employer sends an employee interstate when the employee is a required member of the team for the whole task in the face of the employee saying "I will leave and can at a moment's notice"? Leave him at home. Not criticising the choice but the management of it. Collingwood farce.

        Jon · 13/05/2017 at 23:13

        The thing is, Goat, that you can't forget that it is football because this is a discussion which happens EVERY time that his happens in football. You can blame Collingwood, but the supporter blames the player for wanting to be a part of a once in a lifetime experience – you only get once chance at this! Maybe the club should not include him in the team at his time, but the supporters are not supportive of that decision and blame the player.

          Jon · 13/05/2017 at 23:19

          *this time, not his time

      Montana · 14/05/2017 at 11:32

      No I'm not. I have four wonderful kids and they are VIP, but you miss the point I'm making and many agree and a few precious people like you don't. Not doubt he will have more children and if he is still playing professional football, don't play the game if the birth coincides with it, however DON'T say that you MAY leave your team at half time. Get it now princess?

Willow · 13/05/2017 at 23:56

How are we all tracking this week?

    Randomcliche2 · 14/05/2017 at 00:42

    Google maps, such a good ap. Forecast 2160 just a bit better than avg, but for my cash league its the same projected score as my opponent. I think with the AT/Beams MIA, rookie rubbish scores how many 30's can there be???, Bont/Danger not going beast mode, anything over 2200 will be a very, very, good score this round. That said there are a number of popular picks that have gone well and I expect some seriously large scores to show up…..

      The benchmark · 14/05/2017 at 12:05

      Projected 2111 after vc Mitchell gets his allocated scores. Not sure what a good score is at this stage. Spewing mcniece didn't get named as I had Kelly in my team but had to reverse all that when he didn't get named.
      Taking a risk and heeney better pull his finger out

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 09:45

Fellas, Take T Stewarts score of 46 or take a punt with EVW?
Cheers community

Cliffy · 14/05/2017 at 11:08

Keep Danger's 111 for VC or roll the dice with Fyfe or JPK for the C, and if you guys think the latter option, which of those two?

    Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 11:47

    go fyfe

      Moonman · 14/05/2017 at 16:34

      Silly advice. Why can't people go with their gut feeling because most of the time the Jim's of the world know nothing. Jim is probably a 14 year old kid d who plays tennis?
      Some know what they are talking about for example Derek, Pieman etc

Pman · 14/05/2017 at 18:03

Had Newman on the ground to loophole with Berry as Emergency as Newman wasn't picked and I just log onto see not only is he now playing but he's also on 78 points at half time if you don't mind! Hopefully this is a sign that Super Coach God's have had enough on shitting on me from above this season! Looks like Kennedy is finally going large too with 87 at half time, hopefully another good sign.

moosehead · 14/05/2017 at 18:17

If Newman scores 100+, I wonder if that will be enough to satisfy Grumpy horse? Almost traded him out but fortunately I traded Hampton and Hannan for Heeney and Berry.
GOt it right for a change. Phew!

Randomcliche · 14/05/2017 at 19:24

Beaten by Newman loophole in last match of the round in my cash league! #unlucky

    Randomcliche · 14/05/2017 at 19:31

    Just to clarify Newman was set up as part of a dummy loophole…..haha

Adrian · 14/05/2017 at 23:02

how many trades and cash do people have 22 trades here and $550k cash.
