Tyruddanaut · 13/05/2017 at 08:44

Another week of carnage?

Unfortunately only 2 popular premium picks, Yeo and Macrae, hit the ton

Cookie cutter teams aren't going to last this year. Maybe we should change our tactics

    Moustachio · 13/05/2017 at 09:30

    How is 99 carnage? Do you really expect 120+ every week?

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 10:15

      Agree. If 99 is a low score he's gold

    BlueNath · 13/05/2017 at 09:51

    It's just the SC testing us. We need to stick to proven strategies and tactics if we want to be at the pointy end comes season end

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/05/2017 at 11:22

    Had an unusual quiet last term
    First time 4 the year
    99 as a bad score.
    Yeah I'll take that

      KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 13/05/2017 at 13:01

      Got him in this week, if that's the worst we get I'll be very pleased…

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 12:59

    Everyone has Dalh

      Daniel · 14/05/2017 at 00:29

      Or they will once his price drops in 2 weeks.

    Gjlane123 · 13/05/2017 at 14:54

    Yeo tagged him and kept him low then got let loose for his 109 did his job well !

Swannie · 13/05/2017 at 08:52

That's the trouble when you have more players from the one side, I don't have any doggies (mids) in my team, I only have Boyd in the ruck….

    Hoota · 13/05/2017 at 11:10

    That's crap pal. The three of them play on a different line. You have really missed out on not having a single dog.
    I have Sloane, Laird, Jacobs and Otten and just traded out Hampton with Otten to go next week. Very comfortable with my team thanks very much.

Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 08:59

Our only bubble this week Mutimer is getting more of the ball every game, looked solid last night. Had he kicked straight it could have been a good sc result.

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 09:29

    I grabbed him this week. Was good against Port as well. Hopefully he can keep his place through the byes and make me some more cash.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 10:17

    He's been serviceable in the last 2 games. I'm hoping he keeps his spot. But the way things are going he's getting dropped for sure

    bUCKET__ · 13/05/2017 at 11:32

    Cripps takes his spot as soon as he's fit

    Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 11:47

    Was very hard at it in the WAFL watched a couple of his games and he has Adjusted to the tempo well.

Steeeve · 13/05/2017 at 09:12

First time all year I've VCd Bont.

    jockreynolds · 13/05/2017 at 09:14

    Same mate.

      Lincoln · 13/05/2017 at 09:19

      Same Jock.Got him in this week too.Still got 99 on a poor week…got Yeo in as well…Danger C i reckon

        Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 12:04

        Was Bont or McCrae this week. Got Bont. McCrae after the bye. Got yes instead of McCrae 3 or 4 weeks ago so can't complain

    Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 14:16

    2nd time for me. last time he got 88! That makes 8 weeks with no VC score to loophole, although I'm not alone on that poor result. Still shagging on regardless :/

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 09:39

Very pleased with the Yeo trade in. Started slowly, but came home like a runaway train.
Put the VC on him, but once again, it aint good enough to loophole. (109) So the VC rut rolls on to 8 straight games.

Hopefully Danger's ribs would have settled down after that knee from Roughie 3 weeks ago. I reckon he played with a hairline fracture in one of his ribs since and thus his slightly reduced output. That protective guard he was wearing would not have helped either. Rib injuries are extremely painful and can take weeks for the pain to subside. I think I will whack the C on him this week. I am hoping he will be back (or nearly) to his old self and build on that 110 he scored last week.


    BockChoy · 13/05/2017 at 10:39

    I'm in the same situation. What worries me is that I've passed on a number of similar VC scores only for my C to completely spud it. I think 120 would be a passable score for a C and now ask myself, do I risk a 109 for the sake of only 11 points?

    Then again, the last time Rocky played the Hawks, he got 146.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 10:57

    Pendles played the first 4 rounds last year with broken ribs. Soon as he recovered he went ape shit after many traded him. It's about 4 weeks now for Danger. Hoping he replicates Pendles

    Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 11:52

    Gee that's one area im firing in VC or C last weeks 128 from Bont is the lowest iv taken all year with a season high of 174

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 11:55

      I've have a shocker with captains this year. The only week I didn't have the Vc or C on Gary was the 210 week. Makes a huge differnwce when you get it right

        Derek · 13/05/2017 at 13:00

        Have you tried Eddy

        Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 13:28

        Well im going the Doc this week as my VC Pieman,had it on Bont in the lead up but switched just b4 game started last nite, Doc is Due for a 130 + game should see plenty of it against Stk.
        Danger should be over the ribs and the Bombers will be a tired lot coming off a hard run and it was 30 in Perth last weekend expect him to run riot in 2nd half
        . So if The Doc fails the C goes to Danger
        Sloane was an option but the Vince tag might go to him tonite.

          hedski · 13/05/2017 at 13:42

          Doing the same Stirlsy, carn Doch.

    BockChoy · 13/05/2017 at 17:35

    Pleased I put the C on Rocky!!! Less pleased with his shoulder popping out in the dying minutes. πŸ™

richard · 13/05/2017 at 09:41

Another disgraceful exhibition of goal kicking last night WB v WC.It's been going on for years and nobody at these clubs give a shit.
I feel sorry for the young bucks today watching this sub standard facet of the game that missed out on the greats Locket,Dunstall,Mckenna,
Wade etc.

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 09:59

    I agree. Sometimes I also wonder if enough time/resources are spent on goal kicking. I know there is a lot of pressure during match time to kick straight, but gee whiz the amount of straight forward misses are staggering. It is probably the only facet of the game which has not improved over time. (May have gone backwards)

    Forward line coaches should adjust the width of the goal posts during training. Perhaps halve the width from 6.4 metres to 3.2 metres. It would obviously make it harder to kick goals and force players to concentrate harder to kick truely. Then come match day, players will think the goals are as wide as the Flemington straight after training in and refining their skills in much more difficult conditions.

    Fatso · 13/05/2017 at 11:15

    It is the only aspect of our great game that hasn't improved. Surely it is mental thus a decent psychologist should do the trick because generally, the field kicking is fine.

    Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 11:26

    I read something a while ago that the sports scientists are to blame for poor goal kicking, every meter ran and every kick gets recorded at training, and they're only allowed a certain number of kicks per training session. Back in the days the greats would be on the ground for hours just having shots on goal, but now they get told they can only have 10-15 shots and not allowed to kick anymore.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 11:31

    Try being a Collingwood supporter. They are atrocious at goal kicking & have been for a very long time. Only team in recent times that's been go at it is the Hawks

    Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:39

    In fairness to today's boys they cover a lot more ground. I suspect the "greats" accuracy would drift if they had just run a couple of km before taking a set shot from 50m.

      richard · 13/05/2017 at 12:03

      50m shots i can accept but when their 30-40 m out directly in front set shot no excuse

        DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:27

        We mostly have athletes not footballers
        Think of the great footy minds of 15 years ago and beyond….

        These days it's about beep tests, 20 mtr timed acceleration speeds, reach, pinch tests, standing jump ect ect ect. Awesome for identifying ability but you cannot measure a football brain

    Notorious mac · 13/05/2017 at 12:26

    Richard maybe you could offer your elite goal kicking skills and knowledge to a few clubs

      DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:37

      yeah a player runs 80 mtrs @90% of his best sprint speed marks the ball gets limited time to take his shot and may have to deal with a breeze that you can't feel on ground level due to stadium heights and entry points.

      30-40 mtrs straight in front is NOT straight forward period!

        Notorious mac · 13/05/2017 at 12:44

        Very true. But all these armchair critics who probably struggled to get a kick at local footy would do so much better

          KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 13/05/2017 at 12:59


    Tony · 13/05/2017 at 23:23

    Bulldogs just won the flag. I suggest that's why they don't give a shit.

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 09:08

    Agree that the greats were fantastic kicks for goal but many of them were one out not three players on them like now and got their goals from about 20-30m out. Now it is more tactical with spare players behind the ball.

      richard · 14/05/2017 at 11:00

      Brilliant exhibition of goal kicking by the cats last night.Set shots that sprayed left and right of the main sticks even Motlo[ps shot in the last qtr looked like he never kicked a footy before.Even Chris Scott said it was woeful.And we pay good money each week and these so called footballers get 100's of 1000's each year do dish this crap up.

    Jones · 15/05/2017 at 06:22

    100 percent heard that one of the main reason for poor kicking is that the footy boots these days have a plastic finish on them that decreases the grip when the ball is kicked. In years gone bye the football boots were leather and combined with the laces produced better connection with the ball therfore much more accuracy.

      pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:45

      Your a genius!! You have to inform all teams of this asap.

Flubber · 13/05/2017 at 09:42

Who do you think will average more over the rest of the season?

    KSinny · 13/05/2017 at 10:42


    The BONT · 13/05/2017 at 11:29


    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 09:08

    Steven but he tends to butcher the ball

      Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 11:30

      He goes to the butcher for kicking practice and haircuts

    Steve · 14/05/2017 at 12:15

    Hard to say, depends what you want them for.
    Hanners for reliability and consistency but Stevens if you're looking for a good VC loophole option because his ceiling is crazy high.

Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 09:43

is it too risky to trade in T Adams now? Have to make a decision before the brisbane lions game…..

    Flubber · 13/05/2017 at 09:46

    who are you trading out for it?

      Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 11:52

      beams for adams..

    CoachDamo · 13/05/2017 at 09:54

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Beams out for Adams – let's hope he's not a late out!

      Flubber · 13/05/2017 at 10:13

      Perfectly fine trade!

        Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:40

        Agree, do it

    Eidemick · 13/05/2017 at 11:34

    As Adams injured his hand during training this week. Thar was enough for me to hold off another week in case it is serious

      Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 11:54

      yeh thats what i was thinking yet i cant find any details on what the injury is

    Steve · 14/05/2017 at 12:19

    That's a call you have to make, scoring was never going to be an issue but he's never played more than 18 games in a season…are you confident that this year will be his first?

3121 · 13/05/2017 at 09:44

Got Yeo in very hesitant but happy with the selection. No more games at the mcg for the eagles so that helps

Kev · 13/05/2017 at 09:45

Starting to think the only way for Yeo to start scoring 70's again is for me to trade him in. The premo's I trade in from week to week have a fantastic record of turning into complete spuds

tom · 13/05/2017 at 09:46

Rance who suits my bye structure or Lloyd whom I believe will be more consistent and has a higher ceiling.

    Carl · 13/05/2017 at 11:18

    The answer is in your question. The player who will be a consistently higher scorer

      Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:44

      Agree, focus on the end game

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 10:22

Thinking Docherty C over Danger.

    Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 11:54

    thats what im doing

BockChoy · 13/05/2017 at 10:36

The key question is the Pendlebury baby watch!

    Brett H · 13/05/2017 at 10:51

    Yep – has anyone got an update on Pendles becoming a dad?

    Want to trade him in today – now very cheap, and with a BE of 90.

    Only year that I haven't started with him, and have regretted it most weeks.

    Got sucked in by Treloar having a full preseason, and also having such a strong finish last year.

      Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 11:55

      nothing on his missus instagram account

      Liam · 13/05/2017 at 12:37

      Going off some of Alex's instagram posts she is about 38 weeks. First babies typically go late so i reckon we are good to around 40 weeks

    Vamose · 13/05/2017 at 11:17

    Her water just broke!!!!!!
    Nah, just kidding

    FCAbel · 13/05/2017 at 12:47

    Swanny will be all over it. He's very excited about having a little one.

The Guvna · 13/05/2017 at 11:02

Was thinking of bringing in Dusty but his grammar Trent Cotchin has entered the convo. Obviously a big POD, but seems to be scoring well with the added help in the midfield for the Tigers.

More consistent and could potentially average more than Dusty, who's the better choice?

    Jason · 13/05/2017 at 11:21

    Im looking at Dusty for next week . Has a BE of 124 , shouldnt go up much more than his current price of $519,300 if he beats the BE . I think Richmond have a pretty good run home according to CD .

      Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:47

      Interesting point Jason, has anyone done any research on which teams have the best draw for the end of the season? Or is it too early to tell?

    Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 12:07

    Keep looking at Cotchin. Doesn't seem to have bad games. On my watch list

The Coach · 13/05/2017 at 11:03

I traded Treloar for Yeo. At half-time I was digging my own coffin.

But in typical Yeo-Yo fashion, he bounced back (see what happens when the coach doesn't make him tag Bont?).

This might be the season-defining trade.

    Carl · 13/05/2017 at 11:20

    Hopefully Simpson learns from that and tries to leave Yeo floating across half back. Takes intercept marks for fun when he is πŸ™‚

Mark · 13/05/2017 at 11:17

Pendles or danger as captain?

    Kim · 13/05/2017 at 11:53

    No way I would make Pendles capt this week what if he actually does leave at half time? Danger for sure this week, Pendles far too risky this week.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 11:58

    Danger. He's not expecting a baby

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 12:00

      Actually just looked that up. Dangers mrs is due in July! Christ when will this madness end!!!!

        INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 12:04

        Right. Before you make any capatain selections check for babies

          Mark · 13/05/2017 at 12:47

          Hahah thanks guys I forgot about the baby

        FCAbel · 13/05/2017 at 12:48

        Swanny again

        Rabbits17 · 13/05/2017 at 13:01

        raaaahhhh no more babies

James · 13/05/2017 at 11:18

Just wondering what a 'cookie cutter' team refers to?

    Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:54

    Cookie cutter, Just google herald sun how to pick a super coach team in five minutes. Result = a team that looks and smells just like everyone else's.

    Kim · 13/05/2017 at 11:54

    It means a lot of people had very similar teams at the start of the season. Doesn't really matter too much as injuries and trades make people's teams different mid season in particular.

      DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:55

      Yup some people pay top dollar and other pay for dropped prices

    Babo · 13/05/2017 at 13:30

    Cookies (players you select) are cut from a dough (range of all players). Rather than choose your own shape, one can use a pre made stencil such as a circle or star shape (most commonly picked players from online sources) to make their tray of 30 delicious cookies.
    (Last part sounds a bit weird)

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 13:40

    A team which is devoid of POD players. POD players are those which low ownership rates.

      TEM · 13/05/2017 at 13:50

      POD stands for point of difference

Don't Blush Baby · 13/05/2017 at 11:19

Wanting to loop Newman into Marchbank and Stewart , but worried Newman might be a late in. Think I will just leave March on field with the E on Stewart

    Jac · 14/05/2017 at 21:25

    Should have played Newman on the field!!!

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:32

      Der Fred.

Bobby · 13/05/2017 at 11:38

Who's everyone putting the C on this week?

    Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:49

    Danger again, I know the moment I change the gods will bite

    neil demons delight · 13/05/2017 at 12:48


    RickeyRat · 13/05/2017 at 21:26

    I went Rocky as VC so take the 147,i had Zerret as C just in case not l going Danger or Pendles again this year will look at my backs Laird or Doc both so consistent.

Chris_Judd · 13/05/2017 at 11:50

Had the Bont as VC, weighing up who I should put the C on. I'm tossing up between Titch or Danger, thoughts?

    Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 11:56

    Tich vs Brisbane = big tag, take care

      Chris_Judd · 13/05/2017 at 12:01

      Who might it be tagging him?

        Moe Szylak · 13/05/2017 at 12:06

        Mitch Robinson not playing.

          Temet Nosce · 13/05/2017 at 13:18

          Titch it is then

Jeff · 13/05/2017 at 12:08

VCd YEO but goin Sloane. Should tear Melb apart at home. Thoughts?

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 12:20

    Can't argue with that

    Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 12:42

    Tossing up between Sloane and Danger if Doc fails.
    The worry on Sloane is the tag for mine and im leaning towards Danger because of that, but Sloane at home is hard to stop.

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:17


Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 12:08

Thinking Murphy for captain. Fyfe keeps spudding it. Or Selwood but is he fully fit

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:52

    Murphy over the other 2
    Agree but follow ur gut mate

gator59 · 13/05/2017 at 12:40

Which 2 to start on ground.. Barret, Berry or Fisher.. thoughts please

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:47

    Barrett and fisher

    Jason · 13/05/2017 at 12:53

    Barrett would be my first choice . Then maybe Berry and Fisher

    FCAbel · 13/05/2017 at 12:56

    I like berry. Playing in guts

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 13:19

    No robinson or Beams. Berry and barrett

neil demons delight · 13/05/2017 at 12:50

Ebert looks the goods after his bye was a burnman for me like wingard and yeo

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 12:54

    It hurts mate I know
    I had Ebert and Dixon last year and they burnt me now this year they are flying

cashcows · 13/05/2017 at 12:59

Take Mutimer's 53 or roll dice with Fisher? Also fielding Barrett.

    Marcus · 13/05/2017 at 13:13

    I'd take that 100%

    Alun · 13/05/2017 at 13:27

    I'm in a similar boat Mutimers 53 or go with Barrett?

    Luskin star · 13/05/2017 at 13:31

    Im in same situation. Have decided to roll the dice and start fisher. . If someone asked me pre-season would i be happy with 53 from my M8 i'd of said no so not going to settle for that

Dice · 13/05/2017 at 13:02

Enjoy the Yeo ride all year suckers! As soon as he gets a tiny bit of attention, back under 70

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 13:03

    I don't have him but even so your call is a big one

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 13:08

    I think it is Yeo handing out the attention….Didn't he tag the Bont for the best of 3 quarters last night? Still tonned up and the Bont didn't get there. Not bad for a tagger.

      Liam · 13/05/2017 at 13:31

      Not sure he tagged him but was on him when ever Bont went forward. If Yeo was a bit cleaner last night he was looking at 130 plus.

      Babo · 13/05/2017 at 13:36

      Bont dominted with the Yeo tag then Yeo changed his system in the 2nd half.

      Bont just was a bit lazy in the 4th. Didnt maximise opportunity. Waited for the ball more than usual.

      Yeo got his ton from being loose in def… intercept marks, clearance kicks to no man's land etc… CD love him.

      He will join my team after rd 12. Similarly priced i hope.

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 09:12

    Loved the way he took contested marks in defence which equates to big points. The advantage of playing multiple positions means he will be quiet some of the game then unleash the rest of the time.

redgumwon · 13/05/2017 at 13:10

Is Treloar only going to be 1 week or more? Looking to hold if it's only one week. If not I'll trade Treloar for Rocky

    redgumwon · 13/05/2017 at 13:28

    Just heard a whisper that Treloar may have groin problems like he had before at GWS. The official line out of Collingwood is it's an ankle. Time to move Treloar on I think

    Babo · 13/05/2017 at 13:37

    I'm holding for now… can't afford to sideways yet.

      redgumwon · 13/05/2017 at 17:33

      I just got burnt Treloar into Rocky. Sums up my whole year πŸ™

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 13:16

Berry, Hampton or Barret on field?

Nick · 13/05/2017 at 13:18

C on Danger or Sloane?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:21

    Neither lol

JMac · 13/05/2017 at 13:18

2 questions
1. Is heeney the real deal? or will his summer lovin sickness come back and bite him again.
2. Good downgrade target for Jaeger (yep- still have him!)

Fexz · 13/05/2017 at 13:18

Should I get Heeney or Wingard?

    redgumwon · 13/05/2017 at 13:20

    Heeney I think. Wingard may play more forward again after the bye

CoachDamo · 13/05/2017 at 13:33

Need a league win – have to trade out either Beams or Treloar. I'm thinking Beams – am I right?

    Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 13:45

    Hard one, both could be back next week but both could still be carrying the aftereffects. I'm thinking trade out Treloar as Beams scored much better than Adam before the quad.

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 13:51

    Trade out Beams I did. Treloar is an ultra premo and Beams has a history with injuries.

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 13:43

C has officially left Danger for Doc. Plz don't blow up in my face.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 14:17

Jarrod Berry! You star! 35 SC at quarter time. Keep going son!

    Don't Blush Baby · 13/05/2017 at 14:25

    Yes keep it up and I'll loop you with Treloar and Pepper ,just gotta keep an eye the Pies game which starts at 4.35

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 14:29

    Sweet he was my other trade in for Hampton, bloody Newman better not be a late call up now he's my loop.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 14:51

      Berry sitting on the bench with the E on him. Hopefully an 80 odd from Berry today. Looks like Mitch Hibberd my loophole slave will get some field time in the backline. Stewart can move off the field and onto the bench.

Don't Blush Baby · 13/05/2017 at 14:27

Have confidence mate in your trades

pod · 13/05/2017 at 14:43

Quarter time Saints vs Blues.. Well done to all coaches that traded in Steven, and also those who have the C on the Doch.

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 14:45

    Amazes me no one gives the Doch some rough treatment or a tag

    Kev · 13/05/2017 at 15:18

    Those who have Kruezer and Murphy need congratulating too. Bloody Kruezer has towelled up every ruck he's come across including max, I might have to get him after round 11

      pod · 13/05/2017 at 15:24

      Kruezer has gone to another level, just worried about his injury prone history. His price will skyrocket if he keeps this up, might have to do the same and grab him sooner rather than later.

        DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 15:35

        Credit needs to go to Wombats
        Put his plums out on chopping block long b4 R1

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 14:53

Bloody ridiculous. He belongs in the backline. A turd this size could have been avoided if it wasn't for some bizarre coaching. Not impressed.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 15:05

    Looks like they just moved him back. He was lost in the forward line

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 15:08

      Just noticed that. Good. His output should improve from here.

Wal · 13/05/2017 at 15:04

Everything is turning shite atm, thinking I need a captain differential, Adams not the craziest idea in the world?

hedski · 13/05/2017 at 15:07

Traded him a couple weeks ago.

Kev · 13/05/2017 at 15:16

StNick poohing his pants AGAIN! I doubt he'll finish as a top 10 fwd trade him this week if you still have him

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 15:54

    Let's see what his score is at the end shall we?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 16:34

    Yep, you were right, pretty poopy…he's even gone backwards in points.

Kev · 13/05/2017 at 15:21

Ridiculous comment to make early in the first qrtr. you're a joke mate

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 15:21

Blues doing really well, should be in front. C Doc leading the way.

    pod · 13/05/2017 at 16:44

    Well done Joshua, Doch was awesome!!

Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 15:32

Nothing on here in WA free to air, WAFL game about to start Dockers 2s so ill look at that and listen to stk v car.
Doc going ok a bit quite that qtr so cheer harder while you drink Hedski…

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 15:51

    Lubing up for the cats game tonight Stirlsy.

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 15:59

    Let us know how Luke Ryan goes Stirlsy

      Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 17:20

      Gotta have faith Hedski Doc did the job,
      Will do Pieman. Peel are well on top.

        hedski · 13/05/2017 at 17:58


      Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 18:51

      Ryan's stats at bottom of page now Pieman he played well.

Saundo · 13/05/2017 at 15:43

VC on Zerrett, Danger, Selwood or Eddie Betts?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 15:58

    Eddie Betts?…that'd take some big brass balls haha

Kev · 13/05/2017 at 15:55

Billings finally starting to look like he belongs in AFL might be a sneaky gap filler during the byes. Roberton seems to be struggling with a soft tag and I'm sure other AFL coaches will take note of that, I'll be delaying getting him until after the byes. StNick to TMitch or Rocky this week I reckon

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:35

    Billings need to show some more consistency first before I'd consider picking him.

    Randomcliche · 14/05/2017 at 22:39

    Rocky smashed his shoulder up

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 16:18

Who comes off Taranto or SPP to take Berrys score? Thoughts appreciated

    hurman · 13/05/2017 at 16:20


TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 16:23

Rocky has dislocated his shoulder. WOW

    SCdonkey · 13/05/2017 at 16:35

    As harsh as it may be. I was waiting on when it was gonna happen, the guy has burnt me 3 years in a row. Totally stayed away from him this year.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 16:38

      I dont have Rocky and this is why. BRILLIANT PLAYER, but always seems to break down at some point. Every year it happens. Some coaches will be shattered after this. Be interesting to see how many weeks he he will miss.

        Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 16:52

        I've been burnt by him many years, great player to have when he's firing, but he never plays a full season, either injury or suspension.

    Kev · 13/05/2017 at 16:39

    Dam. TMitch or Cripps maybe

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:09

    Up to 3 months out, ala Joel Smith..bummer for Rocky owners, especially if they brought him in this week!

      Derek · 13/05/2017 at 17:17

      It didn't look much, I guess he will be the talk this week. What % ownership?

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:27

        9.4 %…he beat his B/E too, by 2 points

        Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 17:29

        9.4% Another week and it would have been 15-20% I guess!

          Randomcliche · 14/05/2017 at 22:44

          great score this week captain

Luke · 13/05/2017 at 16:23

Take Barretts score or play parsons?

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 16:30

    The way rookies are going I'd take it. And can't forget the 19 last week

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 16:26

There is no way McEvoy is actually a legitimate pick. Surely not right?

DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 16:38

I said it before and I will say it again I will not start with nor bring in glass boys

Rocky, JOM, D.Swallow and Murphy are peanut brittle

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 16:42

Ballsy…with a little bit of crazy thrown in, hope he stays for the whole game for ya.

    SCdonkey · 13/05/2017 at 16:46

    So do I Russ. So do I…!!! Hope the missus holds up for the next 2 hours. I just have a feeling he'll go huge today.

Kev · 13/05/2017 at 16:43

Steele could be the best value pick of the year. I'd hate to be one of the poor coaches who traded him out or didn't start with him.

    DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 16:46

    well he was named as a villain last week can u believe it!

    Guy is a great F6 all year long

      Holty · 13/05/2017 at 16:51

      Agreed. I always new he was a gun. Started him last year as well but hard to break in to that GWS side. Although burnt me last year, i was never going to not pick him this year.

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 16:49

    Picked Roughy over him Kev, got rid of Roughy now he's coming good!!!

      Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 16:56

      I started roughy too, traded him fairly early for yeo and about $40k extra. Just hoping the burns don't repeat from last year.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:06

      Same here hedski..oh well, dem's the breaks.

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 16:57

    I am pretty happy I didn't start with Steele,so I don't know why you would think that. Had so many meh games

      Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 17:35

      Avg 93 for a 347K player. Up 100K in price, not the worst of choices!

      Cogla13 · 14/05/2017 at 07:36

      Your loss is my gain. Thanks.

Holty · 13/05/2017 at 16:46

Patty Cripps you absolute star. Ive only been waiting 8 rounds for this but it has been worth the wait

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 16:51

    Not sure what his be was but I'll be looking at him next week Holty.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 16:53

    He sure is a gun…wonder how much he'll go up by next week?

    pod · 13/05/2017 at 16:54

    Same Holty, it was only a matter of time.

    Northernsoul74 · 13/05/2017 at 17:19

    Same here. Annoying that in my league I must be playing one of the only other people to have him.

Bobby · 13/05/2017 at 16:47

How many weeks will Rocky miss?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:04

    He could be out for several months depending on how serious the dislocation is, and if he needs surgery or not.
    You'll need to trade him out regardless.

Chief · 13/05/2017 at 16:50

Take Barrett 60 points or roll the dice on Powell Pepper in China?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:12

    Seeing as how he could die from pollution inhalation half way through the game, I'd say take Barrett's score.

    Pitch 72 · 13/05/2017 at 17:13

    spp mate

Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 16:53

Thank you captain titch, showing the rest of my so called premium midfield how it's done.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 17:01

Woohooo! Well done mate. Yeo just did not make it for me this week. Over to you Danger. Dont screw it up.

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 17:07

    Was going Danger if Doch didn't work out TH, hopefully he goes huge tonight, go cats.

      Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 17:14

      Yep my streak continues 132 will do me.

John · 13/05/2017 at 17:08

who for Captain guys please, can't decide

Fyfe, Danger, Selwood or JPK

    Andy · 13/05/2017 at 17:11


Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 17:08

I'm taking Berry's score and leaving Stewart on the bench. Take Barrett's score or go SPP?

    Saundo · 13/05/2017 at 17:11


      Derek · 13/05/2017 at 17:13

      I'm doing same. Take Berry ahead of Stewart, but give SPP a run ahead of Barrett.

Andy · 13/05/2017 at 17:11

lol, who's a good replacement for Rockliff?

    Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 17:25

    Selwood/martin/zorko maybe

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 09:15

    Cripps. Cheap as chips

Alex · 13/05/2017 at 17:12

Had VC on J Steven (111) take it or chuck the C on Fyfe/Buddy/Danger /JPK/Hanners?

INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 17:14

Steele Sidebottom take a bow sir. What a goal!

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:30

    Looks like Steele might've finally pulled his head out of the side of his bum

Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 17:14

Takes smurphs 108 or c Zerrett/danger (thinking zerrett)

John · 13/05/2017 at 17:14

Should i take jack stevens 110?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:22

    I don't know, maybe if the rest of your team's travelling ok. Who's your captain choice?

SirSamuel016 · 13/05/2017 at 17:15

Had VC on TMitch (135). Do I take this or keep the C on Danger and hope he outscores that?

    Tommo · 13/05/2017 at 17:17

    Take the 135 big fella

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 17:20

    Take that anyday Sir

    Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 17:25

    Agree. Take it Mate.

    SCdonkey · 13/05/2017 at 17:43

    Take the punt on Danger!?!?!#@!

    Seriously though, every week i see people asking whether they should take their VC pick score or not. For goodness sake people, you should be setting youself a score that you'll be happy with.

    I always set myself for 130+ from my VC 125 may be the borderline. Anything below I'd take a punt on my C for the week.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:05

      There are many people out there unsure of their own decision making..not sure why, Supercoach requires constant decision making, for 6 months.

      I consider that part of the fun and challenge of it….as opposed to constantly asking other people what to do.

      SirSamuel016 · 13/05/2017 at 18:38

      I have 130+ set, but I had to ask because it's Danger.

        JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 18:47

        Take the 135,not sure about Danger at the moment and I'm worried since I do have the C on Danger,had the VC on Bont and he didn't come to the party in the second half of his game

Daniel · 13/05/2017 at 17:17

Thoughts community on Otten to Rance? already flicked Hampton to Berry as well

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 18:03

    Did the same trades Daniel, time will tell.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:07

    Sounds good…can't hurt your team, only strengthen it.

Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 17:23

Had Rocky from the start.

Knew I should't have checked his massive 3/4 time VC score and got all happy.

The SC Gods saw and decreed " Oy … None of that being happy with your team stuff this year …"

    Finnius123 · 13/05/2017 at 19:24

    I'd be pretty with 147…

      Trollolol · 13/05/2017 at 20:01

      How about with a multiple month injury ?

      Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 22:38

      Am very happy with 147.

      Not that happy that his arm almost fell off a few minutes from the final siren.

Finnius123 · 13/05/2017 at 17:28

C on Docherty!!!! Yeah the boys

DavidSA · 13/05/2017 at 17:29

Me VC going off!

    Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 17:40

    Who was it

Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 17:38

If anyone is struggling with the afl live app or needs a stream check out Stream all my games from them, their great.

Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 17:40


Your timing seems impeccable David.

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 17:41

Happy Taranto is showing his worth however my opponent has Kelly…

Neverweaken · 13/05/2017 at 17:42

Kelly going mental. WHE scoring. Taranto E for Treloar going well. Good times this weekend. Even murph as captain I'm happy with. Steele did well.
Of course SuperCoach Sunday shall strike again

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 18:09

    Taranto looking good for a 90

jimmy · 13/05/2017 at 17:53

who for captain

JPK Fyfe Danger or Selwood

    Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 18:06


    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:30

    I'll say JPK…well you did ask.

INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 17:55

Not happy with the 9mil offer. Wants more

hedski · 13/05/2017 at 18:08

Has Pendles just done a runner??
Listening on radio.
Nope he's back.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:14

    Just went for a slash…panicked alot of coaches though haha

Tom · 13/05/2017 at 18:08

Keep a Marchbanks score or go Stewart?

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 18:08

Will be taking Taranto's score over Parsons. 53 at HT

Powerage · 13/05/2017 at 18:21

Zerrett, Danger or Selwood as C

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:29

There'd be no point in him leaving early regardless, he still wouldn't get there in time.

Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 18:29

Attention Pieman Luke Ryans stats… D K HB M T HO I50 G B DT
RYAN, L 241951310201111
He looked good and had a great smother in the last when the other team were coming at them after kicking 3 str8 to open last he smothered off the boot taking it in same action and pumping it into his own 50.
One of Peels best will be in top 5 on ground.

    Stirlsy · 13/05/2017 at 18:32

    23 disposals 19 kicks 5 handballs 13 marks 1 tackle 0 hitouts 2 inside 50s 0 goals 1 behind 111 DT points

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:33

      Impressive!…hopefully he gets a run soon.

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 18:50

    Cheers Stirlsy, now come to the party Ross and give him a game f ya.

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 18:29

Are Heaters days behind him now?

    Saundo · 13/05/2017 at 18:34

    Yeah had him since the start, never again!

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:03

    Nah…I reckon any backman averaging over 90 is worth sticking with

      DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 19:17

      He isn't averaging over 90 me thinks he has to go

    INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 19:30

    Zac Williams has stolen his role. He's much more relevant

DacZawson · 13/05/2017 at 18:35

Getting your VC pick right is one of the most rewarding aspects of Supercoach.
Thankyou Patrick Cripps

    Mick · 13/05/2017 at 18:38

    As you're the expert VC on Merrett or Danger or Joel Selwood?

      DacZawson · 13/05/2017 at 19:26

      Selwood had a dodgy ankle so I reckon it's out of Merrett and Danger, I'd go Danger for the higher ceiling.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:39

    I just passed your message onto Patrick Cripps and he said "You're welcome DacZawson" πŸ™‚

Tim · 13/05/2017 at 18:43

Keep Marchbanks score or go Stewart?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:49

    I'd bank the 63 rather than risk a 40

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 18:47

Starting to look like Pendles should've just stayed at the Hospital today…other things on his mind by the looks.

    Tyruddanaut · 13/05/2017 at 19:49

    I want to trade him out next week honestly. He'll only get worse from here with the kidlet coming around

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:53

      True that mate, I blundered by bringing him in 2 weeks ago too, love to go Pendles to Cripps or maybe Kelly, Mitchell…anyone else!

johnno2908 · 13/05/2017 at 19:18

Sure am glad I bought pendles in 2 weeks ago…

    Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 19:21

    Same πŸ™

Liam · 13/05/2017 at 19:19


I'm furious

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 19:20

Shaw and Pendles don't even hit the 80 mark, started with both.

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 19:23

    Shaw didn't touch it in last quarter. He was running with someone to shut them down. Pity he was 83 at 3/4 time and was looking like 100+. I brought him in as well

      Andy · 13/05/2017 at 19:31

      Brought him in instead of Rance, not shaw if that was the best move.

hedski · 13/05/2017 at 19:22

Bloody communists at it again Russ? Lol, didn't see your comments, guess its about the pies tho.
Sry just rechecked deleted by user. Ha ha.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:30

    It was a moot point after Stevie J ruined the Party mate haha, about GWS being over rated and all that…

      hedski · 13/05/2017 at 20:05

      Yeah just got a pic from my pies mate, was a dick with sunnies and a leather jacket "f#ck Stevie j". Ha.

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:35

        Pies fans must be heartbroken after that cheapass seagull goal at the end.

INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 19:28

Pendles is no longer SC relevant. Eventually every player hits the wall. And bloody hell did it happen fast with Pendles. No pace. Can't escape from congestion anymore. He is DONE!

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:32

    Not to mention many many sleepless nights to more funtime with the missus lol

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 19:32

    Same as Shaw

      INPieman · 13/05/2017 at 19:46

      Exactly. Shaw & Pendles no longer relevant. Out with the old in with the new

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:51

        I actually can't believe I traded him in, knowing he was just about to become a dad, what was I thinking?…Brain Fade!

George · 13/05/2017 at 19:32

When's the earliest Rockliff will be back?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:36

    If it's a proper dislocated shoulder, months George….2 to 3

      George · 13/05/2017 at 19:38

      Oh well…

      Cold_Case · 13/05/2017 at 21:22

      Yikes. Went from must have to never again in 1 quarter

        Captain Risky · 14/05/2017 at 08:46

        I was sitting there planning on trades to get him in. Back to the original plan again.

    Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 23:10

    Buggered if I know. Seem to have misplaced my medical degree …

    Sorry Mate. Your guess is as good as mine. Let's wait for the doctors report with fingers crossed.

      George · 14/05/2017 at 07:23

      Thanks Juzzy

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 19:39

Pendles did not even make his break even! Not focused because of the bub situation. Next week coaches trading in Pendlebury will be stealing candies from a baby! That's how cheap he will be.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:59

    Very ordinary effort today, if he'd tried 5% harder, Pies would've won, wish I could trade him straight out but have too many other pressing issues.

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:40

Half the Cats side hasn't scored a point yet, Touhy and Danger are in negative points.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 19:42

    Parsons 0 outscoring Danger 2-,maybe I should have taken Bonts 99.

      Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 19:45

      Hahaha, lucky I put the C on Doc. How is Kelly doing? I'm out right now can't watch the game until like halfway through the second

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:47

        Kelly's on 31 points with 5 mins to go in the first Joshua.

        JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 19:48

        Kelly playing really well,31 at the moment.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:49

      I changed the C from Danger to Buddy at the last second John, hope that works out, still hope Danger goes well, but Buddy better lol

        JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 19:59

        At the moment you are way ahead,without Buddy even playing yet,I was so close to just taking Bonts 99 then I thought that would be silly,but I was still worried,looks like I was for a reason.

    Tyruddanaut · 13/05/2017 at 19:47

    When you play it safe with Danger and Bont as VC/C πŸ™

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 19:52

    Early days for Danger. Will work into the game.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 19:57

      Bloody hope so Hawk, My Team's looking like Joe Average so far this week.

JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 20:05

Not sure how Hannan stays in the Dees team,yet to touch the ball.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:10

    Not sure mate, maybe they don't have much else on offer?

hedski · 13/05/2017 at 20:07

Bombers are smashing us.

    Northernsoul74 · 13/05/2017 at 20:15

    Hurley looks good. Might be my next defender target.

Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 20:33

C on zerrett, keep going lad

    Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 20:36

    It's a cruel game. I had the C on Merrett , decided last minute to go Danger. That sucks!

    At least I have Zerrett, bloody gun!

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 20:50

    Same here I have the captain on him also

Tommo09 · 13/05/2017 at 20:34

This week looked promising

Yeah it's gonna be another long week

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:42

    I hear ya…prediction was initially 2176…now at about 2050…wahoo!

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:34

Can Parsons beat his 19 from last week?….what a gun!..on 10 points at half time.
Should make us huge money this year…huge!

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 20:45

    We are going to roll in the cash Rusty! More like rolling in soiled toilet paper. I have Parsons and he is really becoming a skid mark in my side.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:49

      Pickett…Mark 2…useless.

    Liam · 13/05/2017 at 20:52

    Put the C on him right before the bounce, so happy.

gator59 · 13/05/2017 at 20:35

Go the little Zerrett..

    Northernsoul74 · 13/05/2017 at 20:40

    Beams to Zerrett trade looking good so far. About the way boy thing that's gone right this season.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 20:38

Gee Whiz.

Hannan is going realy really well. NOT.

Right now, he would have to be the #1 "rookie" burnman of the season. I feel sorry for coaches who have this pri-ck on the field tonight.

    tom · 13/05/2017 at 20:39

    I've had him onfield since Eddy got dropped.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 20:41

      You need to fix your rookies in your forward line. And fast!

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 20:46

      You need to get a guy like that,( who has a balls full of blood score of 96 in his first game)…off your field asap as soon as you realize everything after that is heading to shitsville tom.
      He scored 96, and then 5 big piles of crap.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 20:43

    At least that was one rookie disaster that I missed,already had enough,so there wasn't any room.

    Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 20:47

    Going at 100% efficiency at least…. Yes, It could be worse!

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:02

      Way to look at the bright side mate haha

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 20:51

Kept both Otten and Hampton. They are going alright so far not sure how I should feel. At least Hampton won't lose much

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 21:15

    I also kept them,had other fish to fry,but with the intention of trading them both out next week.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 20:54

Andy Otten.

I hate to have to say this, but you are done. I need the cash.

Thank you for your superb rookie efforts this year and adding nice $ value to my side.

Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours at the Adelaide Football Club.


    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:07

    Give him another half HAWK, and if he doesn't get to 75 or 80, I'd understand your amicable parting of ways, otherwise, give the big old bastard another chance, then you could get rid of Pendles for someone who'll be able to sleep for the next 2 years πŸ™‚

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 21:19

      I don't have Pendles Rusty. I will sleep soundly tonight!

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:21

        Lucky Hawky bastard!

        SCdonkey · 13/05/2017 at 22:38

        Meh. I took the gamble putting C on Pendle a gamble i will never do again. Hannan has to go for McInnes and Myers this week and now i have to see if can get enough to get a premo, if not might have to get both McInnes and Myers if they are named next game.

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 21:01

Laird and Doc are doing better than most of my mids

Holty · 13/05/2017 at 21:14

Wow, Geelong right now are absolutely embarrassing. Have they forgotten how to defend. 58-17 is the tackle count. Half way through the 3rd quarter and they only have 1 player with more then 2 tackles.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:22

    I thought Geelong were contenders this year, but they've proved to be extremely unreliable so far, don't rate em at all now.

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 21:18

When is Joel smith back? Still have him hahaha.

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:19

    Yeah me too, I hear he caught a good size Murray cod this week not sure how many points he gets for that

      Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 15:05

      A solid 80 surely, Murray Cod are one tough type of fish

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:20

Melbourne taking it up to Adelaide!…go you good things….good to see !

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 21:26

    Do I dare to dream,I was expecting a six goal lose.

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:30

      Believe John, especially after that Oliver goalllllllllllllll

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:04

      Dare to dream indeed John, your team is gonna beat the premiership favourites !

    neil demons delight · 13/05/2017 at 23:23

    do we need maxy Pederson doing ok

      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:33

      I'm sure he'll slot straight back in, Neil, when he's ready to come back, Pederson was only ever a fill in for the interim. Might not have ever got another game if not for the dire Ruck circumstances at Melbourne.

        Daniel · 14/05/2017 at 01:08

        Gawn is still out for a couple… Hope Pederson can keep this up, at least through the bye rounds.

Cold_Case · 13/05/2017 at 21:20

Danger set for 3 figures now

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/05/2017 at 22:08

    Danger worked into the game. Coaches were freaking out and calling for his head in the first quarter. BANG 110 is OK.

    Captain Risky · 13/05/2017 at 22:10

    Not a bad night after all, Danger OK, Zerrett and Oliver did good.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:14

    Especially after he was -2 after one quarter.

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 21:43

Zerret stopped

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 21:49

    133 not enough for ya? πŸ™‚

      DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 21:55

      Yeah it's good but I have him captain so can't I be greedy?

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:02

        Good night for ya mate..well done with your C choice.

          DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 22:04

          Thanks mate. He could have gotten more also got like 20 DT points in the last 30 seconds and lost 1 SC. The kids a gun and will be a star in the coming years for sure

JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 22:02

Maybe I should have put the C on Oliver.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:07

    111's not terrible though John, go Dees!

      JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 22:16

      Yes I'll take that,still can't believe we are beating the Crows on their home deck,just about makes up for last week.

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:27

        Celebration time John!…your guys are good!, and Adelaide aren't as good as they thought they were…:)

    neil demons delight · 13/05/2017 at 23:19

    think he is the real deal and petracca

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:21

    390k this bloke started at, Wow wee oh boy

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:13

My shark boy did ok tonight, can anyone guess who my sharkboy is? πŸ™‚

    hedski · 13/05/2017 at 22:24


      Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:25

      Nope, he's in Melbourne πŸ™‚

        Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 22:28


          Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:29

          Got it ja…I'm gonna use him up…and spit him out πŸ™‚

Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 22:15

Zerrett over the bont this week looked good. Shame il be doing a straight swap of rocky to bont this week probably :'(

Atleast i had rocky from the start and he gave me some monster captain scores while i had him

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:17

    Just move captain glass-shoulders out mate, no emotional attachments…bigger and better things will come. πŸ™‚

Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 22:29

Picked up Hanners on the cheap instead of Mitchell, Oliver or Crippa a few weeks ago. Please go big tomorrow Hanners.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 23:51

    Hanners has been alright,he's on my watchlist for one of my last mid spots,last three rounds have been nice and consistent.

Holty · 13/05/2017 at 22:30

Hmmmm, could Jacobs possibly be the most over rated ruck in the comp. Or at least the worst tap ruckman for hitouts to advantage? How on earth do you get 76 hitouts and still lose the clearances?

Derek · 13/05/2017 at 22:33

Why do bad scores happen to good people?

    Holty · 13/05/2017 at 22:38

    Who has failed for you Derek?

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 14:53

    Not sure Derek but thanks for worrying about my team

Ja191 · 13/05/2017 at 22:40

Well sloane's gonna be tagged for the rest of the year, that should be interesting

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 22:45

    He will be really cheap in a few weeks

      Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 22:53

      Him and selwood both

    Don Drumpf · 14/05/2017 at 13:22

    Great timing, brought him in this wk as uber-premo

DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 22:43

What do we think par will be. I am on 1444 with 8 players to go, my first decent week in ages

    Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 22:55

    My maths is bad lol im projected at 2000 exact with strndica as captain…vc on rocky and sandi on bench. Il be happy with 2200 this week

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:30

    I think you'll get a very good score this week, defyingmadness.

JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 22:51

Laird and T.Mitchell in for Otten and Hampton next week.

    DefyingMadness · 13/05/2017 at 22:53

    How much cash do ya reckon they will bleed?

      JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 23:34

      We've made just under 400k between the two of them,so I'm very happy with that,but it's time to let them go,their BE was around 90 each this week,so it should be fairly high next week after they both scored in the 50s.tonight,time for a downgrade or upgrade depending on peoples needs.

        DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 01:05

        Oh yeah I am trading them out for sure, was just wondering how much they will bleed so I can look at who I want to trade in

    Joshua · 13/05/2017 at 22:53


    Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 22:55

    Bang bang! Like it mate

    Derek · 13/05/2017 at 23:12

    Better late than never

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:42

    If you can afford those two…for those two John, this week, you'll strengthen your side considerably.

      JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 00:07

      Money in the bank,just waiting to be used,I've downgraded five out of the last six trades,so time to have a bit of fun.

        Juzzy · 14/05/2017 at 01:07

        Delayed gratification.

        The best part of supercoach.

        Have a ball )

Jambak · 13/05/2017 at 22:53

Is Oliver the real deal? Can he be expected to churn out a 112+ average for the rest of the season?

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:04

    Just clicked on his name and….he's averaging 110 after 8 games so what do you think?…glad I got his red headed ass in 3 weeks ago…of course he's the real deal!

      Swans2012 · 13/05/2017 at 23:05

      Seems to be….but who knows this year

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:18

        He's proved himself 8 out of 8 rounds, I'll take that, what more does it take to convince you?…sheesh

          Daniel · 14/05/2017 at 01:12

          If he can back it up round 9, should be a good trade in target. πŸ˜‰

          Swans2012 · 14/05/2017 at 09:39

          Nah rusty he is a jet. I'm just bitter I don't have him and hoping he crashes and burns lol

    Juzzy · 13/05/2017 at 23:17

    Been very hesitant on him Jambak. Only a kid in his second season.

    Then again I kept thinking the same about Merret last year and it bit me in the ass.

    Russ is right. The stats don't lie.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 23:18

    Had Oliver from go,can't believe people still doubt him,he's better than a lot of so called premos.

      Tony · 13/05/2017 at 23:44

      Yeah, me too. After his JLT form, he was too good to leave out at the price.

      I did dump Mark Murphy for him pre-season though, so it's not all good.

        JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 00:00

        Can't get them all right Tony.

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:23

    Sometimes, you just have to believe your own eyes, and not listen to anyone else…the kid attacks the ball like a bull. He'll be a good player for many years.

      Derek · 13/05/2017 at 23:46

      He has some hard nuts around him that helps.

        Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:50

        True Derek, and good on them, cause they were dog's nuts about a year ago. couldn't even buy a win. Good on them for smoking Adelaide today.

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:30

    Started at 390 k, churned out six straight 100+ games then a ninety something in round seven followed by this weeks outstanding performance. From the start he was doubted, when Gawn fell over he was written off, when Spencer crumbled he was buried, Melbourne now runs no ruckmen at all and lost the hit outs by fifty yes fifty against Adelaide and he is still a star, he was a bargain buy at 390 and he will still be good value if you pick him up at 600. What will he be capable of once last years all Australian ruck returns.

      JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 14:23

      Well said Tibor,had Clarry from the start,when I put up my team,people said it looked alright,but why have you got Oliver in there for,I said he would get more game time this year and the times he did play last year he was a gun and at 382,500 he would make a good M8 well at the moment he's my M3.

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:17

        Great call starting with him John, I brought him in for 503 k, but very happy with him staying in, especially after last night's effort πŸ™‚

          JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 17:01

          Yes I stuck with him,everyone was telling me to get JOM,Swallow and Beams instead,I did get Beams,but not at the expense of Clarry.

Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 22:57

Hampton and Otten, do have to go this week, if there are not anymore pressing issues, both maxed out on generation, and spudding it on points, they're only gonna be like a dragging anchor in a sailing race from now on.

    JohndJames · 13/05/2017 at 23:24

    Trading them out this coming week was always my plan Russty but was hoping they might have done a bit better,so that at least I had to think about it.

    Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 23:56

    Got Hampton out this week, often turns into doch next week

Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 22:57

Is myers really a must have next week? I wanna go rocky to bont and houston to stef martin, swinging nank up forward. Means i miss myers tho…hmmm

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:01

    Certainly not mate…with scores of 44 and 58, hardly a must have. Try a fallen premo, or left field choice if possible.

      Kyle · 13/05/2017 at 23:30

      At this stage im gonna bring in bont for rocky, then last 2 spots are going to selwood and sloane. Selwood aceraging about 80 last 3 weeks. Sloanes last 2 games are sub 100. Both gonna be absolute bargains in a few weeks. Will mean my mids will be: danger zerrett bont sloane selwood hanners pendles and Fyfe.

        Stephen · 14/05/2017 at 00:15

        Pretty shit midfield tbh. Could think of better.

          Kyle · 14/05/2017 at 00:18

          Not sure if serious..?

        Cogla13 · 14/05/2017 at 08:03

        Sloan is going to be tagged for the rest of the year and average about 80, why would you bother getting him in now?

    Holty · 13/05/2017 at 23:05

    Only reason im getting him is bcos there really is not many more options. I feel his js is good though so he does bring a warm body to the bench.

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 00:05

      I'll probably get him as well. Only have $300 in the kitty.

    Juzzy · 14/05/2017 at 00:53

    As insane as this sounds I am contemplating Rocky down to Myers.

    My mids are stacked with some loopholey bench cover.

    Might be a good time to get a jump on the bye rounds with some decision making cash.

    Like your plan though and if you miss Myers I don't think it's gonna hurt you.

Finnius123 · 13/05/2017 at 22:59

Projections everyone? I'm heading for about 2150 at this stage

    Iamme · 13/05/2017 at 23:17

    likewise, 2154

    Russty_ · 13/05/2017 at 23:34

    Not looking too good for me, only about 2100.

    Dogs · 13/05/2017 at 23:54

    2140 at the moment, that's with Hannan on field, and Selwood, pendles, shaw getting mid 70's.

    JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 00:11

    After last week anything over 2000 will do me.

    Kyle · 14/05/2017 at 00:13

    Around 2200 at this stage. Sundays are never nice to us tho so could be anything by the end of tomorrow..

    Tommo09 · 14/05/2017 at 07:46

    2040 for me

    Captain Risky · 14/05/2017 at 08:43

    2230 still. Pretty happy with last nights haul- just 4 in play, Captain on the wrong bloke though- Danger (C) 112, Zerrett 137, Laird 124 & Oliver 142 got me back on track. Probably will go pear shaped again today..

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 00:12

1400 after 13 with VC loop Kelly

Juzzy · 14/05/2017 at 00:18

Stewart (Bombers) looked good tonight.

He might be manna from heaven especially for those looking to swing Nank to cover Witts in the ruck next week.

Not confident in my Parsons, Eddy, Balic situation there.

Jack · 14/05/2017 at 01:18

Oliver, Bont, Zerrett, Cripps will be locks for the next 5+ years

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 03:40

    Think u can add Laird Doch Cameron & Lynch too
    Those two big Feds when in prime will be scary

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 03:41


smart as s · 14/05/2017 at 07:22

The kid o'çonnor looks a natural out there. For a first gamer, composed and confident. Hope he gets more games!

    smart as s · 14/05/2017 at 08:13

    don't want to carry fisher through the byes, he looks like a lost fish out there!

Tommo09 · 14/05/2017 at 07:48

Take Danger's 112 or gamble on Fyfe/JPK

    Iamme · 14/05/2017 at 08:38

    The golden rule is anything over 125 is an acceptable captaincy score…..Fyfe and especially JPK is overdue for a big one, so I would gamble

      Lazza · 14/05/2017 at 09:34

      Who changed the Golden Rule ? It's been 130 since time began…

        Derek · 14/05/2017 at 10:41

        8/10 of my opponents have Danger as their C. I had him as my VC.

        I have Fyfe, Buddy and maybe Hanners as C options if I want.

        I have my nose in front in all my matches, but we are entering Sucky Sunday.

        Do I play safe or not?

        SCdonkey · 14/05/2017 at 10:42

        It's still is the golden rule, however this season our uber premo for captaincy hasn't produce much for us. 125 is the borderline, 130+ is bonus this year.

    BockChoy · 14/05/2017 at 10:33

    I've gambled 8 times this year and have only gotten it right twice (the last 2 weeks with 148 and 147 from Rocky). The first 6 times, my C scored less than my VC. Are you happy taking a riskless 112 over a chance this will be not be met?

Bobby · 14/05/2017 at 08:51

Do you guys believe Josh P Kennedy can come hopme strong?

    Bobby · 14/05/2017 at 08:55


    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 10:43

    He always does. As the grounds get heavier, more stoppages swans get serious, JPK does his best work. I'll be getting him round 12.

    Iamme · 14/05/2017 at 10:52

    Agree with Derek, he will come good…History tells us he's too good a player not to.

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 11:01

    Definately mate. JPK always gets better as the season progresses. He likes the cold wet conditions. A supercoach beast.

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:39

      Have to remember he is now the Swans Captain. Might take a while to get used to that, but when he does he will lead the Swans from the front. Round 11 bye means I get him round 12.

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 14:04

    He is the absolute premo. Will not let you down. As the season grinds on for many he will just emerge just like every year

TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 10:53

I don't have him, but what the hell is going on with Rory Sloane?

He has copped a hard tag in the last 2 weeks and has just completely capitulated. Last night Bernie Vince completely took him out of the game. (Especially first half) No doubt he is a ball magnet on his terms, but when confronted with real physical pressure it is becoming very apparent that he cannot cope. This may seem harsh, but as I see it, there is no way he can now be considered a legitimate premo midfield option. Sloane is completely exposed when confronted with a sustained hard tag. Other clubs now know it and will follow Melbourne and North Melbourne's lead.

Sloane is damn lucky that Mitch Robinson is injured, otherwise Sloane would have copped it again next week against Brisbane.

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 10:59

    Plenty of people payed 675 for Sloane last week. I'm sure they regret that. Sloane goes on runs then has some poorer games & crashes in price. Happens every year. Priddis usually does as well

      TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 11:11

      I agree Pieman. That is why you never pay top dollar for players after the season commences. Sloane has now demonstrated he has some chinks in his armour and the opportunity to grab him at $575K is not too far away. I will not be picking him after last night regardless of his price. I reckon players that I currently do not have such as Zach Merret, the Bont, Patrick Cripps, and Scott Pendlebury are well ahead of Sloane now. Its just a matter of timing when you grab them. Right now Pendles is a top priority at his ludicrous price. Hopefully the bub arrives this week, so he can put his mind back to playing some good footy.

        Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:33

        You have to consider everyone this year for the right price. Gunston a good example, never would have considered him

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:12

    Sloane wasn't in my best 8 at the start of the year, in the group just below. He would need to be $500k for me to consider him.

      TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 11:20

      I can see why now Derek. Sloane definately no longer in my top 8 calculations and will not entertain him at all now.

      I am looking at Pendles this week. I have been holding out and holding out on him, (rode my luck a bit there) but if the baby arrives this week, his mind will be at ease and ready to play serious footy again. I have Treloar on the bench. If Treloar does not come up this week, the straight switch is almost irresistable.

        Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:30

        I think Trelor has more than an ankle wrong. Rumours about a tear in his groin I'd be concerned about if true.

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:24

    I had a look at the top 50 players as at the start of this year and tracked their price movement for 2016.

    48/50 at some point during the year fell below their starting price. Docherty and Gawn were the only exceptions.

    At their lowest point (prior to round 15) the average drop in price for each position was significantly different.

    Defenders -9.4%
    Midfields -13.3%
    Rucks -5.4%
    Forwards -29.8%

    I have picked off the defenders first. I now have Adams, Rance, Laird, Shaw, Simpson. Waiting for Docherty.

    Will get JPK and Pendles through the byes before turning to the forwards and looking for the Buffaloes.

      TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 11:39

      That is very interesting. The price fluctuations are the highest (by a long shot) by the forward players. I was not aware of that. Luckily I have been focusing on my backline/midfield as well. I started with the Doc, Laird, Adams, and grabbed Shaw 2 weeks ago. I want Simpson and he might be at the right price very shortly. (Have to cull Otten this week and have enough spare cash to swap for Simmo). Not 100% sure on Rance. He is just a bit up and down for my liking. I grabbed Hannebery 3 weeks ago at rock bottom price wise, and hoping to get Pendles on the cheap this week or next.

        DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 12:33

        he gets no help from the rest of the mids
        Danger had the same problem with Adelaide club
        Too many outside players and not enough grunt to disturb Vince tag.
        Was at the game last night and Vince wore him like a handbag

    Boltons Blues · 14/05/2017 at 15:02

    I had the big C on him last night, he's was given all names under the sun last night, the C was one of them

Steeeve · 14/05/2017 at 11:05

Brought in Pendles and threw the C on him. I'm so good at this game.

Cliffy · 14/05/2017 at 11:12

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?

    Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 11:23

    I had jpk last week capt and he scored 77. This week selwood for a similar score. Why risk 111 in this environment? I would kill for my capt to score 100

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:28

      Tag is back.

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 11:27

    Danger's 112 is one of those mid range VC scores. Fyfe and JPK could easily surpass that this week. Why not have a ping on Fyfe? Even if he falls short and scores 100, you would not have lost much. Fyfe's ceiling is high and if he has a good day, a score of 150-160 is quite gettable for him. Good luck with your decision.

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:28

    If either were at home I'd say Fyfe or JPK, but…….. the tag is now a worry.

    I have VC on danger and might consider Buddy C

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 11:36

      Yep. Went Nank to Buddy last week!

      Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:54

      Who would Richmond use to tag Fyfe? I reckon they might just back their own mids which makes Fyfe a viable captain

        BockChoy · 14/05/2017 at 12:18

        Lambert has been given the job of tagging most weeks.

          Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 12:33

          Ta for that il back nat

Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 11:39

What will Oliver price be now. He started at 390 so he fit in the mid price madness category. Many doubted. When Gawn went down he was written off. When Spencer crumbled he was buried. Melbourne don't even play a ruckmen at all anymore. Oliver churns out six straight 100+ scores has a ninety something in round 7 then has a night out against the crows when Melbourne lose the ruck hit outs by 50. If his price hits 600 now he is good value, what is he capable of if Gawn comes back and he starts getting a look at first use…..

neil demons delight · 14/05/2017 at 12:07

glad I kept him proving to bea keeper now

Touk tuk · 14/05/2017 at 12:20

Pendles has scored 4 tons and 4 scores under 100. How relevent is he for SC this year??

    Ja191 · 14/05/2017 at 12:22

    He's still averaging around 110, not as bad as everyone is making him out to be. He'll come good.

      Touk tuk · 14/05/2017 at 12:41

      Hope so mate.

    Kim · 14/05/2017 at 12:57

    Clearly distracted by upcoming baby it seems unless playing with a niggle or role change, who knows. I would hold reckon he'll come good after baby is finally born.

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 13:51

      i don't think it's the baby lmfao!
      I think the hunger is gone. Simple

Willow · 14/05/2017 at 12:37

Oliver is ridiculously good for his age and experience, I just can't see him continue this for the whole year, looking back at history, only Rockliff become a premium player after so few games averaging 113 in his 3rd year after only playing 20games, even the Bont crashed down to a mere 103 in his second year, peddles av 88 beams the same McRae went at 100, the list bloody goes on, but the boy is just so darn good and as an owner the temptation is to keep the bastard, I guess time will tell but ATM a trade to an Ablett or even a MASSIVE POD in wines after RD 10 could be a possibility unless I have bigger fish to fry, fry Fish yes Z.Fisher the smallest fish on land will be gone before Oliver my son. Crap I think I just blacked out, Crouching Crouching is that you.

    Kim · 14/05/2017 at 12:56

    Everyone's kept claiming Zac Merrett wouldn't keep it up last year and he did. No point trading Oliver unless he gets injured or does put in 3-4 sub 100 games in a row. I think he will keep it going contested beast. Keep him at m8 in the end going far better than both treloar or Pendles at the moment anyway.

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 14:07

    What stops him willow. When there is no ruckman no problem, when the side struggles he still performs it's all upside as Melb get players rucks in particular back and the team is more competitive he just gets better

Hawks · 14/05/2017 at 13:46

Help, need to get the captain selection right this week.

Fyfe, Hanners, Kennedy or Buddy?

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 13:52

    Fyfe – but you are a bit late….

Will · 14/05/2017 at 13:53

Is Titchell a good downgrade option for Rocky? Or who else?

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 14:02

    Yes good trade
    Others Martin, Merrrett, Kelly, Viney all hitting there straps now

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 14:03

    Cripps or Zerrett

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 13:59

Michael Walters role change is amazing , 119 last week because Ross has put him 100% mid
Has the same role again today and is smashing it currently 14 disposals @ 92% DE
Seriously considering him in my fwd line

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 14:02

The Nank might not finish top 6 as we had hoped

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 14:09

    Indeed but I as well as many just cannot trade off players because of low scores from time to time.
    Need my trades to be 9 at the very least after byes

      DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 14:13

      Same my thoughts exactly

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 14:40

    4 disposals so far…bloody spudding it, lift big fella!

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 14:41

      Going backwards in sc now holy crap

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 14:55

        I've got him and Butler on field..ugh!, there goes the week.

          The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 15:38

          Not so much UGH he is on fire

            Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:39

            Yeah Bont, no Ugh for Nank Tank, just for butler haha

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:15

    I disagree. He is up against the biggest ruckman in the comp this week and Freo are running the tigers absolutely ragged. Nank is dead on his feet at the moment. He will bounce back next week. Also need to hold as that rd 12 bye is crucial

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 15:54

    he was on 53sc at 3/4 time. Came home strong. Will he do that every week. I traded him last out week.

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 14:15

What will Rance's price be if he scores 120 today?

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 14:21

    Will go up roughly 10k if that is the case making him 481k
    Only thing I know is he has the BE of 78 with a projection 94 and a predicted price change of 4k positive

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 14:47

    Looks like he might go higher, on 82 currently, my trades of Otten/Hampton to Berry/Rance looking like netting me @100 points and some nice left over cash, still probably score under 2000 for the third week in a row tho.

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 15:55

      Went backward in last 15 mins. Was 110 with 15 mins to go. Brought him in this week

Jimmy · 14/05/2017 at 14:39

Rance or Doch next week?

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 14:43

something needs to be said about Walters this podcast Jock he is looking beastly with role change

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 14:55

    Brad Hill looking good too + DPP.

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:25

    He scored a 28 two weeks ago – would definitely hold off for a few weeks

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:28

      Agree Finnuis, looking at Walter's and hill's past score averages doesn't inspire much confidence for me, different story if they can maintain the good scores though, Walters copped a nasty rib injury I think though.

        DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:07

        "Role change" the low scores are when he is studding in forward pocket you know?
        Maybe not I guess

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 14:46

Fellas tom Stewart or EVW

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:28


DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 14:53

My score of 2200 is now looking like 2100 thanks to the spud performances of Butler and Nankervis

    Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 15:18

    Mate Nank is getting robbed like crazy

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 15:26

My my Nank I am sorry I doubted you. What a gun

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:26


    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 15:30

    Could ton up, go Nank!!!

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:31

    Got us a respectable score, well done big guy, Butler is another story…

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 15:57

      Yeah got him on too Russ, sharpening the knives, next week or two.

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 15:28

Newman late in apparently

hedski · 14/05/2017 at 15:29

Friggin Hello Newman late in for Florent, he'd wanna outscore Berry's 71 prick (at least he'll make some cash)

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:36

    If he doesn't outscore berry I am going to be annoyed

    EatChickenNuggets · 14/05/2017 at 17:57

    Outscored him in the first 1/2 already mate, what a beast!!

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 18:03

      Just got home and checked, woo hoo..

        Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 19:42

        Gotta love days like that, what a great game

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:34

Elliiiiiiiiiissssssssss!, hahaha well done Tigers!!!

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:35

    Oh wow did I speak too soon?

      TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 15:49

      You did……Mundy kicks the winner!

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 15:58

      Again Russ…ha ha. Bloody Stevie J and Mundy.

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:27

        Bloody Mundy!…another bad haircut lol

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:30

    Was actually Neale's fault Tigers lost, with that great gather and delivery to bad haircut boy, I think his points jumped huge for that from what they were.

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:35


    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 15:35


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:36

    Bloody awesome!….heartbreaking for Tigers.

Ja191 · 14/05/2017 at 15:38


TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 15:40

What a ripper game between Freo and the Tigers! What a game. Mundy's goal after the siren broke tiger hearts!

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 15:57

    Did Neale get 30 pts for that last clearance?

    One of my opponents had him C, that might have just got him home. Wow

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 19:43

    They don't have hearts

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 15:48

I wonder if the Chinese at the game actually understand what's going on out there, if they were briefed on the rules of AFL?
It's fairly clear out there, I expected there to be a smoggy haze in the air, maybe they have huge fans blowing all the crap away?

    SCdonkey · 14/05/2017 at 15:59

    You'd be suprised how many asian understands the game mate. I'm a filipino born, grew up here since 1984, went back to my birthplace for the first time in 1998. Was suprised to find some AFL merchandise and some locals were actually talking to me about footy, apparently some games gets televised there,.

    As far as i know AFL has been trying to introduce it to asian countries for the past decade or so, we have a lot expat in Asian countries, by looking at the crowds on Port and Suns there are a lot of them at the game watching.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:23

      Yeah I noticed that, lots of caucasian faces in the crowd, shame gold coast can't seem to make a decent contest of it..and Gazza on 30 points, be good if our game could go international eventually, imaging if the yanks started playing it?

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 16:01

    Made in China fans…they'll break at half time.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:24

      Hahaha, I almost pished myself then πŸ™‚

Derek · 14/05/2017 at 15:59

Newman late in. Had the C on him. Was almost another Eddy disaster.

Only options are Buddy or Hanners for C.

Stick it in Buddy

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 16:12

    Will miss Berry's massive 71. Happy that I held Newman for the cash increase

      FCAbel · 14/05/2017 at 20:19

      Would habe been a ripper

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 16:13

    risky. Don't know if he can go big two weeks in a row. Hanners is the safer play – I reckon he is practically a given ton

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 16:22

      Has gone huge against the roos before but I reckon Thompson/Tarrant may tame him Fin. (Buddy)

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:24

      I'm going with Buddy….no risk, no reward

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 16:19

    Come on Derek, Simpkin mate, I need 4 points, holding up the bottom of the ladder πŸ˜‰

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 17:42

      Simpkin down. 5pts. Ouch

        hedski · 14/05/2017 at 18:06

        Injured?? Ive been out.
        Might be tight now, think you'll still pip me.

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:33

    Buddy in rare form

    Dogs · 14/05/2017 at 17:00

    I was loophole get berry and Stewart. So far new mans looking good tho, so not even mad

    BlueNath · 14/05/2017 at 20:42

    Ouch! Bet you wish you didn't see he was a late in now!'

BrownlowBoy · 14/05/2017 at 16:01

Spare a thought to anyone with the C on Newman with no captain options to play!

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:32

    Sure it will happen. And second time this season. Think Eddy was the last time it happened

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 18:00

      I remember well

    BrownlowBoy · 14/05/2017 at 19:15

    If this was you, I hope you left it on Newman!

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:32

Was just doing my Sunday Coachkings side before and there didn't seem to be an option to put Jake Lloyd in the backline….that kinda sucks a bit.

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:44

    Mid only I think

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 17:06

    I stuck him in the guts, are you "Russbeasts"?

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 17:31

      Nah Cheese and Clackers

        hedski · 14/05/2017 at 18:08

        Nice, I like to scroll thru look at team names, there are some funny ones.

          Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:24

          I brought McVeigh in at half time and the bald asshat hasn't scored a point yet!…asshat!

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:33

I guess the moral of that story is Col…only loophole someone who's definitely not playing, someone who's not even an emergency..just to be safe.

INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:34

Least you have someone. Many will be stuck with Newman

hedski · 14/05/2017 at 16:35

Cos we are mere plebs and they can Col.

    Col · 14/05/2017 at 16:45

    Yes, yes we are very much so plebs
    Very well said

    I would of, could of, should have chosen a different c option but was caught out in the Mother's Day luncheon
    Oh well, happy Mother's Day non the less

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:54

      It might actually work out for ya Col, he's on 26 now.

INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:36

I'm sure many will have had the VC on Rocky & C on Newman. And Rocky is a certain trade. A true double fisting no lube from the gods

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:08

    Might beat him Pie

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:15

    Maybe you don't know your porn as well as you think Pieman πŸ™‚

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:38

Charlie Dixon's really turned things around in the last few weeks, is anyone considering bringing his large injury prone ass in?

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 16:46

    You been smoking some funny stuff this arvo Russty?

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:48

      Nah mate haha just wondering, I brought Pederson in last week, not gonna risk Charlie as well πŸ™‚

Tommo09 · 14/05/2017 at 16:40

Looking like sub 2k again this week
Even after 2 upgrades this week

Don't Blush Baby · 14/05/2017 at 16:44

SC Rule Number 756 – Never put the C on an emergency

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 19:45

    I thought it was rule 304

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:50

Newman on 19 already!

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 16:54

    Whoever put the C on him might not be feeling bad at the moment…

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 16:57

      Yeah right?….on 30 now.

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 16:51

First I trade out WHE early now I trade out Newman early πŸ™

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:13


Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 17:04

Early call but JPK is back I reckon

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 18:04

    He never left. Slow started always. Comes home like a boss

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 17:09

At least I stuck to my guns and brought in Heeney over Franklin. Also what a spectacle is going on in coachkings currently top 18 have the same team. A lot riding on half time trades/captain pick it looks like.

Rick Grimes · 14/05/2017 at 17:10

I hate you Newman. You don't realise how much I hate you right now. Fugggggermugggerfugvvghopfefvhjkkbbfdaergggggggghh

    DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 17:11

    Same dhjrghurtdejiokehtd

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 17:42

      Lol dhnekhbilillknsoh8rh9prhrinjrv m,l;

    DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 17:14

    I talked myself out of trading Hampton out and moved on Newman last week, not like I even had donut problems also so I am bummed

      Rick Grimes · 14/05/2017 at 17:23

      I kept Hampton on the basis of a warm body over byes. Knowing sc karma, Hampton will be dropped next week and Newman will go on scoring rampage. Soul destroying stuff.

        DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 17:24

        Yeah I kept him for the same reason. Didn't want to rely on newmans dodgy job security

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 17:25

    I hate Franklin more….Captain, my captain…SPUD!!!

      Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:27

      I don't want to say I told you so…

      But I told you so

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 17:30

        Yeah I know, there is still time though :), fingers crossed tight!

          Derek · 14/05/2017 at 17:40

          I hope. When C on Buddy as well

            DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:41

            Franklin coming

            Kim · 14/05/2017 at 18:10

            Buddy was never going to go huge 2 weeks in a row. None of the kpp forwards do look at lynch today 28 sc points for gc. Jjk never goes large next week after big week previous game also. Better off going a midfielder.

    Rocksta · 14/05/2017 at 17:54

    Don't blame him mate.
    Blame the Fkr Horse.
    I'm stranded with Newman on the bench with the 'E' on him, having to field Steward with a 46.
    He's gunna score 130+.
    FK you Horse!

      JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 18:07

      Better than me,have Melican on the field with Newman on the bench,didn't find out soon enough to do the swap,I usually always check to see if there are any late changes

    SCdonkey · 14/05/2017 at 18:09

    Same!! My opponent had EVW then switch to Newman. I need Buddy to have a big 2nd half to win the league.

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 22:14

    Cost me a few hundred places sitting on my bench while oconnor spudded it up.

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:16

That moment your trying to loop Berry 71 and have Newman playing instead :/

Oh wait nvm

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:37

half way through the 2nd quarter and Sydney have 52 more disposals for the match so far 0.o

⚰️ R.I.P

Derek · 14/05/2017 at 17:39

Almost got through weekend without any disasters……, almost!

Have Simpkin on field. Finished for the day on 5sc.

That hurts

    Juzzy · 15/05/2017 at 00:02

    Bad luck Mate.

    I had him from the get go but traded him to Parsons last week to avoid a Nank doughnut.
    This week thought I had wasted a trade for Parsons 19ish points.

    Hope he comes back and scores a ton for you.

Derek · 14/05/2017 at 17:43

Oh why didn't I leave the C on Newman!!!

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 17:48

    It's impossible to forsee these things Derek…just plain bad luck.

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 17:54

      CRAZY last 3 rounds hey
      I smell a big last half for Franklin though. His 2nd quarter he was vintage just no finish with his shots so far.
      Hope he can get 110 for us all

        Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:58

        Looking very dangerous

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 17:47

If JPK doesn't reach his BE, he's mineeee

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:53

    His BE is 140 – is a serious chance of reaching that this afternoon

LetsGo · 14/05/2017 at 17:48

Sucky Sunday is turning into Superb Sunday! Heeney and Hannebery on 75+ approaching half time, happy days.

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:53

Newman on more than Berry at half time!

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 17:56

How much u reckon Newman is gonna increase?

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 17:57

    If he scores 120 then he will go up about 50-60k

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 18:45

    Hopefully $200k in a month

Ja191 · 14/05/2017 at 17:58

gotta love benching newman and playing florent on field for florent to get a 0 and newman 80 at halftime.. lol

Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 18:00

Fareout and I passed on Newman due to JS issues, cash generating beast

Phantom · 14/05/2017 at 18:01

Heeney or Franklin for captain in coachkings

Holty · 14/05/2017 at 18:04

Wow. Newman late in and dominating. Nice to still have him but disappointing not having him onfield.

Boltons Blues · 14/05/2017 at 18:07

Newman providing the much needed cash generation, so be it from the pine in my case.
3 big problems in my team this week to consider.
Butler, Treloar and Parsons
Myers the most logical inclusion, but having Witts and SPP make it even harder

John · 14/05/2017 at 18:10

Exactly the opposite happened! Well played

SCdonkey · 14/05/2017 at 18:10

Trigger on Coachking at 574 and I'm on 540

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:13

    i'm sitting on 139th…better than usual haha

Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 18:11

Covering Witts and SPP next week, downgrading Otten to Myers. Will hold second trade unless Marchbanks be is high then I will upgrade to Rance or Adams. Good plan?

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 18:14

    I would hold Witts but probably not SPP. He isn't worth covering and will be just about his max price unless he goes big in round 10. You will be able to paint the fence with Otten and SPP quite easily – getting taylor adams for otten and Myers for SPP is a good plan IMO

      Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 18:15

      SPP will still make u money for a couple more weeks, unless you're covering for bye rounds?

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 22:17

    Marchbank BE is 47

Pman · 14/05/2017 at 18:21

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.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:25

    Same here Pman regarding Kennedy, had him from the start and it's been painful, hope this week is the turnaround.

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 18:30

    Sshhh, u know you've just jinxed yourself, the sc gods are PRICKS.

      Ben · 14/05/2017 at 18:36

      Haha same here, I originally had Newman on bench and put him on field to loophole Berry. Didn't think he was playing but he's currently top scoring Sydney player!

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:27

I reckon North will end up fighting it out with Richmond for ninth spot.

    Ja191 · 14/05/2017 at 18:32

    we both know who will win that battle

    redherringfc · 14/05/2017 at 19:06

    ha ha ha. that's gold.

    Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 10:21

    i doubt either is that good

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 18:31

Horse is going to have a tough job justifying dropping Newman this week!

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 18:46

    To 3/4 time this is one of the all time great rookie performances

    FCAbel · 14/05/2017 at 20:23

    Strait twos. Hes one of titchels mates

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:34

Come on buddy …kick a GOAL for FKS sake!

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 18:40

Jeez…if you got stuck with the C on Newman, you wouldn't be that unhappy now would ya?….he could get to 150 hahaha

    Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 18:51

    Some people could've been cheering to see their opponent with the C on Newman. Only to then still lose

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:18

      Yeah…amazing turn of events.

Phantom · 14/05/2017 at 18:40

I actually feel sick every time Newman touches the ball. Looks like he won't get dropped next week but you never know. Grats to everyone who held him, if he keeps playing looks like he will make around 400k.

    Rocksta · 14/05/2017 at 19:15

    I've still got him, but he's sitting on my bench with an 'E' on him.
    Horse has cost me near on 110 points this week.
    Still, I could of traded him like many others.
    No chance he gets dropped next week!

    Pman · 14/05/2017 at 19:27

    Kept him and had him on ground for Emergency loophole with Berry so am as happy as a pig in shit at the moment as his 152 has given me a come from behind win in my 4 cash leagues, all by margins under 30 points.

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 18:48

Just wondering, who could potentially be a downgrade target from Hampton? Possibly Berry?

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:11


      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:13

      Hellooo Newman lol

        Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 19:34

        Probably will cost the same as hampton…

JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 18:50

Missed out on 100+ points because I didn't check to see if there were any late changes early enough,Melican on field,Newman on the bench.

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 19:10


      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:13

      151 wow

    Dianna · 14/05/2017 at 20:58

    Most of us who have a life/family etc and not just footy would have missed out. DT better because it is set and forget and you don't compete with nerds who watch/listen to footy all weekend.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:07

      Maybe you're the nerd Dianna :), maybe some people have forged their own lives,through many years of hard work, and can just watch Footy all weekend. Those people have very good lives opposed to your chaotic life πŸ™‚

        hedski · 14/05/2017 at 21:18

        Yep, work all week and enjoy the footy and a beer, the family are OK as well I suppose πŸ˜‰

          Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:24

          Fk yeah Hedski!…heres to doing sweet F.A all weekend except watching Footy in the winter time πŸ™‚ cheers bud.

        Dianna · 15/05/2017 at 11:17

        I feel sorry for you and hopefully you don't have a family.

          hedski · 15/05/2017 at 21:13

          I feel sorry for your family, whinge whinge whinge.

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 19:03

Imagine having the C on Newman – the kid is going to get 150

David · 14/05/2017 at 19:04

Hard luck story of the week. Or, Karma? I messed around with my team late last light knowing that I had the league win in the bag. Unfortunately I forgot to put the E back on P.Pepper and turned a 60 point win into a 10 point loss. I wouldn't have minded, just a game right…. but the same guy beat me last year and didn't let it go for a month…

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 19:10


Ben · 14/05/2017 at 19:04

When you try to loop hole berry's 70 with Newman and end up getting a massive score

hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:07

Newman!!! Yes I finally cracked 2k.

Larrat · 14/05/2017 at 19:09

Im cooked see you all next year best of luck

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:15

    O.k see you then πŸ™‚

    Derek · 14/05/2017 at 19:23

    Have a good night sleep. Regroup in the morning

    JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 19:37

    I know how you feel,after Newman being a late in,feel I can't do anything right.

    Jay · 14/05/2017 at 19:47

    Close the door on your way out

Moosehead · 14/05/2017 at 19:13

I wrote earlier that Newman might get another game if he gets 100+ but with 150+ Horse will have to relent.

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:14

Gary from accounts, is a real fkn bastard haha

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 19:15

Finished 6th in CoachKings, so close yet so far πŸ™

BrownlowBoy · 14/05/2017 at 19:16

In reply to my post above having sympathy to those who had to captain options left and were forced to leave it on Newman, I withdraw my sympathy and bow down to your greatness.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 19:16

    Just dumb luck Brownlow

      Derek · 14/05/2017 at 19:22

      Why didn't I take my wife out to dinner for Mother's Day and therefore not know about Newman playing….. had the C on him….. but no….. cooked dinner at home and put the C on Buddy.

      BrownlowBoy · 14/05/2017 at 19:41

      I know its luck, but 150 points of luck is incredible.

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 19:18

2240 atm waiting for scaling on Newman, Lloyd and Frankfurt

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 19:18

Newman and JPK made a decent week for me into a good one. Skipper on Doch was also a decent decision that pulled me through.

I finished up on 2230 – which I reckon is just above average.

How did everyone else fair?

    Dogs · 14/05/2017 at 19:23

    2191, not finalised yet.

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 19:25

    I think I will end up with around 2200. By no means a break out score, but solid. Hoping to move up a little up the rankings with that.

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:31

    2080, better than my 1850 last 2 weeks.
    Parker is back.
    Edit 2074

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 19:20

One guy in my league with 2309 atm bloody good score

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 19:22

2246 this week without Newman around par I would think. Thank god I traded in Heeney over Franklin

    Randomcliche2 · 15/05/2017 at 11:47

    'around par' lols

Dean · 14/05/2017 at 19:24

After SaturDAY I thought id score high, after Saturday night that big score I thought I would get only a few hours prior went out the window with Pendls, Sloane, Lynch, Franklin & Dahlhaus all scoring crap.

Thankfully Newman at least seen me score 2020 a very ordinary score. Bloody hell my ranking is going down Ship Creek in a hurry without a paddle

    JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 20:34

    2023 for me,with Newman on the bench,could have had another 120pts if I was on the ball,won't even be in the top 10,000 after that score.

Pman · 14/05/2017 at 19:24

Hellooo Newman!! 152 points….Giddy up!

Derek · 14/05/2017 at 19:25

I was yelling at Buddy every time he dropped a mark. How many easy marks did he drop in the last quarter

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:57

    Ya got me well played sir

Holty · 14/05/2017 at 19:30

Newman. WOW.

TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 19:30

Bloody Nic Newman hey! Never saw that one coming. I obviously regret trading him out two weeks ago now, but at the end of the day you win some and lose some. Will take it on the chin. To coaches who stuck fat with Newman, congrats!! What an effort by a rookie back man. Unbelievable.

    David · 14/05/2017 at 19:39

    I traded him out then back in when he was dropped the first time for a quick cash grab. Just had a feeling about… The same feeling I had about Yeo. Not on field though…

      Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 10:22

      You used two trades on an unproven rookie named as emergency with poor job security?

      I hate this game.

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 20:10

    Due to Hampton & Stewart playing the same time I put the E on Hampton & hoped Newman would get a late call up. As a result I won 2 cash league matches I shouldn't of. The other person had the VC on Danger & C on Newman & that made a difference & a loss. So much luck involved in this game

      Babo · 14/05/2017 at 20:12

      C on Newman.. how ironic. Nice one.

      SCdonkey · 15/05/2017 at 10:05

      Yep!! So much luck for others. Not much luck for some! VC and C for me this year has been syet! The upside only drop sub 2000 points once.

    Tyruddanaut · 14/05/2017 at 20:13

    Not great for all of us. Had him C for loophole purposes but then went for a gamble with Danger and moved him into the bench. If only…

Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 19:32

If only spud Williamson scored more than 50 pts I would have left Newman on field instead of bringing on Stewart. Cost me my important league win

CoachDamo · 14/05/2017 at 19:32

Thank you Nic Newman! Left him on field (had Hampton as Emergency) and he saved my butt in a couple of league matches!

    Pman · 14/05/2017 at 19:47

    Enjoyed the same slice of luck as loopholed with Berry…about time we had some good luck in light of recent bad scoring weeks.

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 21:24


Josh · 14/05/2017 at 19:34

3rd terrible score in a row can't seem to avoid disappointment this year, even had Newman sitting on my bench! All my premiums playing poorly so I understand why why but extra painful when I see Neale with 129? Barely noticed him in the game until the last 21 seconds where he helped seal the game but rest of his stats 23 disposals only half contested at 74% 4 clearances and inside 50s. Seems insane they score that higher then Rory laird who was a man possessed this weekend

Peggs · 14/05/2017 at 19:34

Wonder if anyone put the C on Newman for loophole, um….. he played , you get 304 by accident

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 20:00

    There will be, and they will brag about it for the rest of the year. What a "Shark move" that was!!

    Did that coach known as "One Touch Wonder" call that one this week by any chance?

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 20:05

    I lost a cash league match because of it. He was taking Danger's score & I lost by 12

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 21:25

      Don't stress Pie, I'm yet to pop my cherry in JR Cashy.

    DTWanderer · 15/05/2017 at 11:13

    A mate who lives in London didn't wake up in time to take the C off Newman…. C#nt

Matze · 14/05/2017 at 19:39

You'd have to think he would keep a spot wit 30+ touches. If he gets dropped then Horse is the new Lyon

Billioux · 14/05/2017 at 19:39

You whinging girls happy now? Late ins from a named emerg fuk wat a surprise! most of you lost your sh!t 3hrs ago and you now got lucky. Pure luck. .And that is part of the whole thing. I have Newman like most,just looped T will. and 48 was not going to cut it. If Tom gets 78 then i too get Newmans 150. Swings and round abouts.

    Cogla13 · 14/05/2017 at 20:30

    cry baby

      Billioux · 14/05/2017 at 20:33

      How u figure that?

Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 19:45

Fellas… Guesses for Newman's BE are welcome…

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 19:46


      Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 19:48

      Everyone is going to have him…

        DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 19:53

        Nope lots of people traded him out

          trader · 14/05/2017 at 20:00

          I played him on field……shocker

        Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 20:04

        29.3% ownership – not that high..

    Bells · 14/05/2017 at 20:02

    Horse will drop him for giving away that goal to Hrvatski.

      hedski · 14/05/2017 at 21:27

      I didn't Kick a goal

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 20:02

    Negative D6 lock if he keeps his spot

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 20:03

    29.3% ownership

    Tommo09 · 14/05/2017 at 20:03


      Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 20:05

      Would u guys suggest Hampton to Newman?

        Dean · 14/05/2017 at 20:17

        To trade out Hampton to bring in Newman at over $300k is absolutely absurd despite his break even being -60 odd

        Alex · 15/05/2017 at 12:05

        Yes great trade Jim!

    Tyruddanaut · 14/05/2017 at 20:15


    Big fact hunt · 14/05/2017 at 20:18

    Be will be give or take -20 for next week. Could tell you exact but don't have calculator with me at moment. If you have him you will make plenty with the 3price rises he gets from 150

      Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 22:39

      -20 for the win

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:39

    Don't need to guess, don't you have supercoach gold?

Derek · 14/05/2017 at 19:50

Simpkin 5 hurt

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 19:59

    -15 I would have had the sweet win

TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 19:54

2186 this week. I am happy with that total despite not getting a break out score.

Addicts anonymous (In Trig's happy place league) ran over the top and pipped me by 18 points. He had Newman on the field, and I had neither. Need I say more……..

There was another bloke who ended up with a MASSIVE 2369 in one of my other leagues. Glad I didn't play that pr-ick this week. I like to see if anyone can beat that.


    Pman · 14/05/2017 at 19:58

    I scpred 2151 which I'm happy about as I'll win 7/8 leagues however the one score that did beat me was a massive 2449!

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 20:02

    I saw some guy commented on a doctor supercoach post that got 2503!

    Dean · 14/05/2017 at 20:13

    I know someone who was 2399 prior to scaling and he had Newman benched, so top score will be 2400+

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 19:55

Will be trading out Butler and Otten this week. It means Hampton would still remain in my team, however Hampton and Butler will have similar breakevens however Hampton is on the bench whereas Butler is on field and trading him allows me to bring Taranto from the mids into the forward, thus giving me a decent on field rookie.

Thoughts community?

    Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 20:27

    Hampton will have a higher BE than butler – I would be keeping Otten and be getting rid Butler and Hampton

Jimmy · 14/05/2017 at 19:59

JPK or Tom Mitchell?

    Danners · 14/05/2017 at 21:31

    JPK, looks to have found his form again

      Lazza · 15/05/2017 at 12:52

      That's what a few said on here about Shaw when he cracked his ton a couple of weeks back …. I'd wait and see ….

Dogs · 14/05/2017 at 19:59

Wanted to trade out often next week, but thinking maybe trading butler who is on field will be more of a point gain. Even playing bad ottens 65-70 is better than what butler is producing now.

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 20:42

    Can't disagree with that mate

    Cogla13 · 15/05/2017 at 09:24

    Butler has the round 12 bye which is handy.

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:32

    As a tigers supporter i'd say butler will be lucky to hold his spot next week. We have Bolton, Lennon, Lloyd sitting in the VFL playing hard for a small forward game. I suspect theyll get it this week.

    Doggy · 15/05/2017 at 10:56

    Only problem I was going to go often and spp to Myers and Adams , now I want to keep spp. But don't have any swing options to get Myers, and no other bubble boys this week.

Tommo09 · 14/05/2017 at 20:02

Rookies options this week?
Just Myers
Are there any defensive rookies?
Want to trade Otten and Butler this week

TEM · 14/05/2017 at 20:03

FML i got 1964 but i had sandi on the bench and didnt put the E on him as i was trying to do the loophole with strnadica and i realised after the game FMLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL and i had newman on the bench, at least i won and newman will make heaps of cash.

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 20:41

    thats worse than a 1 min in injury. I just about hear a mistake like this every season, sry to hear mate

    frogger · 14/05/2017 at 22:19

    Bad luck, mate, it's a shocking feeling, did something similar myself. You can't change it now and at least you've got Newman's cash generation – others had already traded him out and you will have that advantage over them.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:22

    Should've started Sandi onfield, the loophole crap is basically cheating anyway…I hope they outlaw loopholing out of the game.

hedski · 14/05/2017 at 20:04

2307 by "Sassy Foods", best score I've seen in my leagues, killing it he is (Yoda speak).

    DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 20:06

    Found a 2394 in one of my leagues

      Billioux · 14/05/2017 at 20:10

      2356 from Frankie Nemesis in one of my leagues. He was ranked 14th prior to this round. Reckon he gonna be right there.

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 20:14

    2369 in one of my leagues. Team called the Bluebaggers.

Bells · 14/05/2017 at 20:08

Switched Newman onfield (151) at the last second replacing Melican's 31. Didn't take Tarantino score and went with Sam Reid (127).
Tich as VC – took it.
FINALLY a SC week where most things went right. Scored 2321. You Ripper!

Ryan · 14/05/2017 at 20:08

2308 very happy hoping to move up the rankings siting 99th overall last week. Trading out rocky this week makes me so sad!

    Dean · 14/05/2017 at 20:09

    Mate you will be top 30 for sure with that score

      Ryan · 14/05/2017 at 20:18

      You really think so! Ive never been in the top 1000 how did you go

    TOPHAWK1 · 14/05/2017 at 20:22

    Geez, you will be close to top 10 after that effort. Great stuff.

    INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 20:29

    Well done Ryan. But hoping to get through a season with Rocky is fools gold. But you should thank him for his services & the fact he didn't do that early game. You can now go to anyone

      Ryan · 14/05/2017 at 20:33

      The bont I think hoping treloar is back next week

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:43

        Forget about that punk, Treloar I mean, he's a sloppy D/E fkface.

    Top Gun · 15/05/2017 at 12:46

    Congrsts. It's a tough season. Slipped to 1300s πŸ™

Swannie · 14/05/2017 at 20:09

Rockcliffe VC captains loophole (winner) Lynch GC 29pts wtf – supposed to be one of the best forwards….

Babo · 14/05/2017 at 20:11

What did we all score?

2159 for me. Saved by Newman.

    Cocko · 14/05/2017 at 20:13

    Was hoping ave was about 1500

      INPieman · 14/05/2017 at 20:36

      Same Cocko. But like every Sunday night I'm hearing about all these 2975+ scores. From what I've seen 2100 is par, 2200 good score & 2300+ excellent score

    JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 20:37

    2023 with Newman on the bench.

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 20:38

      2241 with butless and perhaps JJ giving me a turd

    Goat · 14/05/2017 at 20:38

    Goat had a disaster rd. 1988. Newman on bench. Sloan as Cap. Parsons on field… Lynch…
    At least there is a new week and cash being made on bench….:)

      DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 20:39

      Thats it Goat bounce back mate

    Iamme · 14/05/2017 at 20:53

    2152 with Newman on the pine without an E against his name…like most of us who still have him.

      Ryan · 14/05/2017 at 20:57

      Got newmans score by luck having looped berry lucky!

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:14

    2123, with Fkface Buddy as Captain.

      poloko48 · 14/05/2017 at 22:59

      Feel your pain mate, had VC on Danger but went with Bud due to his record against Nth, unfortunately he couldn't hold his marks today. At least you cracked 2K, I've now had my third straight week of sub 2K….and have dropped to an embarrassing 50K overall.

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 23:46

        yeah Poloko, he didn't deliver the goods for us today, bummer but he's still worth keeping cause sydney look like theyr'e improving.

    Captain Risky · 14/05/2017 at 22:42

    2282 with Butler and Williamson on the field, Danger as C. Got Newmans score by trying to loophole Berry which was a unexpected bonus.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:52

      That's huge!, how many places did you advance in the rankings?

        Captain Risky · 14/05/2017 at 23:07

        Up 764 to 889.

        8 weeks without a VC to loophole and some ordinary Capt scores is killing me a bit but I can't complain really.

    Dan · 14/05/2017 at 23:42

    2412, 114 overall for the week.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 23:47

      Nice effort Dan…kickin some ass with that score.

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 20:33

big scores in my league this round
Topping off 1st Bantasy 2408
2nd SWANSHOP 2393
3rd Wigsy 2303

I think 2200-2250 is par now geez

Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 20:59

2234, decent score

Steeeve · 14/05/2017 at 21:01

Three straight weeks under 2000. Anyone else?

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:11

    Got 2123, won 7 out of 10 leagues, not good, but not bad either.

    Mark · 14/05/2017 at 21:11

    Scored 2001

    hedski · 14/05/2017 at 21:37

    1855, 1849, 2074.
    Thank fk got a bit of mojo back this week Steeeve, still pretty ordinary, thought Fisher would cover Treloar a bit better than that.

    frogger · 14/05/2017 at 22:06

    Yeah, me, too. Was king of the kids a few weeks back, finished 2nd/3rd on the round and was top 50 overall, now out to 9k-odd.
    Hope it turns for you, am assuming you got hit by some of Beams / Treloar / Greene / Nank along the way there.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:15

    No Steve, you must just be crap :)…just kidding. you'll bounce back.

      Steeeve · 15/05/2017 at 11:34

      Hoping so mate — some terrible captain choices (not so DePendlebury apparently) and having to play Hannan and Parsons on field for two weeks straight has really killed me.
      Upgrading a spud this week. Not sure if it will be Eddy, Hannan or Pickett. All such awful, awful spuds. Then I have Butler losing cash as well, but I need anyone who is actually playing up forward.

BlueNath · 14/05/2017 at 21:10

Wow!… Newman jumped $60,600 and will go up another $50,900 if he reaches his projected score 94 (break even is -20). Good coin for those who kept the faith.

What are the odds on Sportsbet for horse to drop him?

    Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 21:11

    Do u know WHE BE? Thinking of upgrading him but just wanna see his BE

      CoachDamo · 14/05/2017 at 21:12


        Jim_bob321 · 14/05/2017 at 21:15

        Ok thanks…. Need a shark move to upgrade WHE…. Heeney?…
        Everyone has JJK

          Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:18

          20% have Kennedy, one fifth of …everybody

            Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 22:44

            Heeney ownership to rise fast I imagine

Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 21:11

who is more of a keeper: Steele or Witts? I have to get rid of one.

    BlueNath · 14/05/2017 at 21:19

    HAVE TO? Both have relatively low be's and should see you through(/up to their) the bye rounds. Sure you MUST trade this week? If so, I would hold both and look elsewhere

      Finnius123 · 14/05/2017 at 21:33

      I have 7 forward eligible players. I do not want one of them to end up in my midfield, as I would like a forward line full of guns. Due to that being the case, either Steele or Witts needs to go – I can through Nank in the ruck and get rid of witts (this week), or hold onto Steele until his bye and then burn him.

        Stanks21 · 14/05/2017 at 21:55

        Your an idiot if your even considering getting rid of steele. He is getting better every week!

        Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 22:28

        If you have a mid that's fwd eligible and all fwds with mid eligibility that'll be gold come bye weeks and years end. So often people are struggling with trades in the last weeks and minimum bench cover. Could be the difference in a league final

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:35

    Keep Steele

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:37

    Maybe a late year trade from witts to Gawn or NicNat could be a sneaky win?

Whitey · 14/05/2017 at 21:11

I apologise to all Taylor Adams owners. I am bringing him in this week and therefore he is guaranteed to be injured or suspended. Sorry again.

    BlueNath · 14/05/2017 at 21:15

    No wait!! We can talk about this.

    redgumwon · 14/05/2017 at 21:16

    Was on the news tonight in a moon boot

      Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 21:21

      Serious injury? As in missing weeks?

        redgumwon · 14/05/2017 at 21:33

        Yeah channel 9 sports news. Said it was precautionary after the GWS game. Just keep an eye on him this week, It might be something or maybe not?

          Whitey · 14/05/2017 at 22:04

          Didn't see that… reveeeeeerse. Cheers.

BlueNath · 14/05/2017 at 21:12

2581 was the top score from the round

KillaJulz · 14/05/2017 at 21:13

Greene or Heeney?

    Deeboss · 14/05/2017 at 21:24


      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:26

      Lol, take the guy who doesn't get suspended 3 times a year.

    Danners · 14/05/2017 at 21:29

    Heeney looks to be the real deal if you don't have too many Sydney players

    redherringfc · 14/05/2017 at 21:54

    Podcast last week, half suggested Heeney. Glad I got on board.

    I think Greene fell away late last year, he's a no from me.

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:12

      Greene is good, but always has to prove he's a tough guy, shortass syndrome.

        KillaJulz · 14/05/2017 at 22:26

        Got a sh**load of Sydney players but looking like I might tank week 11 since I'm mainly playing for h2h– so Heeney it is

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:20

    Heeney all day

The G Train · 14/05/2017 at 21:23

Will next weeks bye for GC and PA mean only the 18 best scores afield will count as in a regular bye week or will it be 22 like normal?

    Iamme · 14/05/2017 at 21:30

    22 just like a normal week

    redherringfc · 14/05/2017 at 21:52

    The powers that be obviously realise Port and GC are completely irrelevant in SC this year.

redherringfc · 14/05/2017 at 21:26

SC Gold has Newman to Pendlebury only costing an extra 20k, give or take, from about rounds 15 to 19. If Pendles has a week off for Junior then the predictions are less than 10k apart. Obviously won't happen, but interesting.

    Tyruddanaut · 14/05/2017 at 21:32

    Pendles is going to score 30 less a round mark my words

Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:28

That Sportsbet, Ben Johnson ad is just plain wrong isn't it?…how desperate for money must he have been to do that rubbish?

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 22:20

    Wow who the bloody hell said, Hey I've got this great idea for an add……….

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:32

      A typical soulless scumbag advertising executive Tibor..the poor guy only probably made a grand out of it.

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:19

    Really? Take a Bex and have a nap mate.

    Bock Choy · 15/05/2017 at 13:31

    I understand this is an American ad which has been voiced over for Australia.

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:34

Im going to CULL T.Lynch

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:57

    Bad idea…why are you doing that?…is he injured?

    frogger · 14/05/2017 at 22:08

    Would depend on the trade, but honestly, I'd hold. Not injured and hopefully won't be that starved for supply again so soon.

DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 21:36

Hanners, The Bont, Oliver or Dusty

    redherringfc · 14/05/2017 at 21:45

    Think i might have you as a matchup next week. My suggestion is go for a smokey. Have you considered Matera?

      Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 22:33

      Fresh from a holiday breathing in the smokey China air.

    Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 21:46

    I've got all except Oliver. Go Clayton to make me jealous

    Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 22:18

    Finally this is the company Oliver does properly sit with. Surely the doubters are finally silenced. Some of us stole this kid at 382500

      Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:23

      Sometimes it takes 8 or 9 rounds for people to believe what's in front of their eyes.

        Wedge · 14/05/2017 at 22:36

        I still expect him to hit a wall at some stage. If he gets through the year at this average lock him in for a future brownlow

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:35

    The Bont

    Bock Choy · 15/05/2017 at 13:34

    The Bont has a RD11 bye. I want to bring him and Macrae in but will hold off as it will upset my team for that week.

Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 21:36

SPP to Myers locked in. Covering Witts by swinging Nank. Otten to Adams if he isn't injured, if he is might look to a cheaper and more bye round friendly Rance

Cpt Pugwash · 14/05/2017 at 21:39

Is it just me or is there a changing of the guard to our safe as houses promos. The younger brigade are coming fast.

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:39

Who to get rid of first

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:40

Who to get rid of first Marchbank or Powell pepper

    redgumwon · 14/05/2017 at 21:45

    Pepper Powell may still come in handy in the bye rounds? His BE is still ok to hold if you can?

    Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 21:46


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:56

    Maybe one of them, maybe both, maybe neither of them…maybe……

Dogs · 14/05/2017 at 21:41

I've targeted some value picks recently, calculating it will take 11 more trades to fill my last 4 spots with top premos, docherty in the back, not sure but need 1 in the mid, and 2 forwards needed. However this will only leave me with 6 trades after reaching full on field premium.

    Terry · 14/05/2017 at 21:45


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:50'll be well out of trades by the time finals comes around?…hope no one gets injured then.

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:45

T.Lynch and P.Pepper
S.Ross and Myers

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:54

    Start making up your own mind…and you might learn how to be a better, independent coach. The best part of Supercoach is making your OWN decisions.

      The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:58

      Thanks Russty

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:02

        Awww, you made me feel bad now, I think stick with Lynch BONT…he's a good player.

    Kyle · 14/05/2017 at 22:04

    Bad. Why would you trade out lynch? Forget whatever coin he will lose. Doesnt matter for a keeper if they lose 200k or gain 200k. There staying so price is irrelevant.

    He is gonna have low scores or 30 or 40. But he also can pump out 160s to compensate. Hes gonna be one of the top forwards by years end. A huge mistake imo to trade him out.

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 23:08

    Too much of a sideways trade…not enough to gain

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:49


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:55

    Not sure….let me get back to you…………….

    SF4 · 14/05/2017 at 22:27

    Ross is a great POD, take the punt I reckon.

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 23:07

    Cripps….going to kill it in now he's not injured anymore

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:21


Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 21:51

It's so, so, so wrong hahah, I feel sorry for the poor fat drug cheating old bastard.

Adrian · 14/05/2017 at 21:54

how many trades do people have left and cash….l have 22 trades and $500k… seasons has been average tbh..a few good rounds, few average…but no stand out rounds and no absolute shockers. Mistakes from previous years is to panic trade, but l think that l will just trade out Houston this week, due to the bye and upgrade, just the one trade. Then sit tight next week no trades, then trade heavily through the bye rounds (3 x 3) and bring in upgrades (hopefully). After bye rounds l will then have 12 trades left to come home with. I previously always run out of trades, wanting to be different this year, not easy to be disciplined. JJK, Selwood, Sloane, Dusty, will be cheaper soon enough, although having said that l think we all need to think differently this year, from the usual mainstream picks, eg olive, robinson, etc.

Thoughts community on what's the right amount of cash and trades. PS l have learnt also that burning cash to bring in well scoring high priced in form players like the Bont, Sloane burns my cash, and leaves me with no options. $500 -$540k is my buy in target price.

Good luck all, and hope your teams scored well.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:19

    Who are Olive and Robinson? just make sure you have trades left for the last 3 weeks and the first 3 weeks of finals, many dreams have been crushed from having no trades in finals when dudes go down with injury.

The BONT · 14/05/2017 at 21:56

is is good or bad to get rid of T.LYNCH

    Goat · 15/05/2017 at 08:06

    Don't trade premiums unless injured. I asked the same question about JPK last week.

      Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:12

      Bet youre glad you didnt.

andy · 14/05/2017 at 21:57

Is Shaw to Rance a bad trade?

    frogger · 14/05/2017 at 22:13

    What would be the purpose? Do you think there will be a significant enough scoring differential to make it worthwhile (e.g. 10pts/rd)? Bye structure?
    Personally wouldn't.

    SF4 · 14/05/2017 at 22:26


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:28

    Try to keep them both andy, rather than trade one for the other.

      andy · 14/05/2017 at 22:42

      ok thanks russty

Stanks21 · 14/05/2017 at 22:02

2136 this week with Greene on the bench suspended.
Have 18 Trades left and 124,900 in the bank

Laird, Adams, Tuohy
Hibberd, Shaw, Roberton
(Stewart, Vicker Willis)

Oliver, Pendlebury, Kennedy
Zorko, Yeo, Fyfe
Powell Pepper, Barrett
(Fisher, Hibberd, Balic)

Martin, Nankervis

Dalhaus, Franklin, Steele
Greene, Taranto, Parsons
(Hayward, Eddy)

Any ideas community?

Thinking of culling PP or Taranto, downgrading and then getting a fallen premo MID

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:09

    Get rid of Parsons

      Stanks21 · 14/05/2017 at 22:26

      Don't think that is worth a trade at this point.. I know he is playing real bad but how could I possibly gain anything from doing it atm…

        Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:29

        To avoid a doughnut, when he gets dropped, I guess, only if he gets dropped and you need a warm body in the fwd line.

    The G Train · 14/05/2017 at 22:34

    I too have parsons at FWD 6 (moved nank to the ruck to cover witts) and am prepared to cop a 0 if he is not named as I want to trade out butler and ottens. Not that he'd do much better than a 0 even if he is named

Tibor · 14/05/2017 at 22:13

Pp now having a bye after China game. Bye bye

DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 22:17

going Treloar > Martin
And. SPP > Merrett


DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 22:19

Just a tip for all SPP owners I would strongly recommend holding him if you have cover as he will be a warm body during the next batch of byes. His b/e is still low which is also great

    Billioux · 14/05/2017 at 23:02


    Juzzy · 15/05/2017 at 00:20

    Not sure I agree Defy.

    SPP vs a premo mid could mean an extra 50 points per week (100 next week).

    I am pushing my own barrow here 'cos I traded him out this week, and I agree that he would be more than handy during the byes, but I am not sure his scoring will get the job done vs a quality mid on cumulative scores regardless of the byes.

Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 22:27

Love it when you have two teams (the wife does play *wink*) and you play each other in the same league. Then my side that I put 100s of hours into gets beaten by her score of 2348 even after i messed up Cripps VC and put C on Danger. Lol. My teams still around 1100 rank hers climbs to 3000. Funny game this is.

    Juzzy · 15/05/2017 at 00:28

    Be careful advertising this Top Gun.
    Best of luck to your wifes team.

    Top Gun · 15/05/2017 at 12:48

    It 's ok. I never win. Lol

Chief · 14/05/2017 at 22:34

Houston to Heeney?

    DefyingMadness · 14/05/2017 at 22:42

    I did this last week but still a solid trade

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:32


Bells · 14/05/2017 at 22:39

Commentators all ways talk it up about players adding to their next contract with good games…does anyone think paying Fife over a million per season is still a good idea? Fyfe's SC scores have been bloody ordinary of late. Not a keeper? Lock in the loss, or hold?

    DavidSA · 14/05/2017 at 22:47

    your connecting sc scores as a measure of worth to a player!!??!!


      BigBoyBananana · 14/05/2017 at 22:54

      I'm sure that's how it works David from South Australia, didn't you know that Jarrad Waite is going to get $10M on his next contract due to his 147 Supercoach average!

    Top Gun · 14/05/2017 at 23:03

    Would welcome him with open arms to the Saints.

      gator59 · 14/05/2017 at 23:09

      We sure will Top Gun

Joshua · 14/05/2017 at 22:48

Who's on the bubble this week other than Myers?

    BigBoyBananana · 14/05/2017 at 22:52

    Brad scheer from Gold Coast but i would 'scheer' clear of him

      frogger · 14/05/2017 at 23:40

      Scheer with the bye, though, so remains on bubble rd 10, too.

    frogger · 14/05/2017 at 23:50

    Sam Durdin for North (had one game early, then played this week). Scheer already covered.
    McNiece if named for Bombers. Cedrix Cox (Bris), Ben Long (St K), again, only if named.

BULLS · 14/05/2017 at 22:57


    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 22:59

    Trade someone else out.

Pitch 72 · 14/05/2017 at 23:03

Seems there are 2 supercoach results this round,
those that played Newman,
And those that did not.

    Randomcliche2 · 14/05/2017 at 23:34

    2197 without, lost my cash league game by 20odd to Newman & Co. Damn straight, 2 results, those with him, win, those without lose.

      INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 09:21

      He was extremely influential in results that's for sure

poloko48 · 14/05/2017 at 23:05

Righto, time to rage trade!
OUT goes Hampton, in comes Hurley
OUT goes Butler, in comes Myers
Still leaves me with $358K in the bank & 18 trades.

My team now:

DEF: Adams, Hurley, Simmo, Rance, Heater, Newman (Marchbank, Stewart)
MID: Danger, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Barrett, Berry, Myers (Balic, Fisher, Fox)
RUC: SandiWitts (Preuss)
FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Nank, Roughy, Hannan (Parsons, Eddy)

If Preuss not named I'm thinking about Witts to Sauce and hold Butler for another week.


    JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 23:37

    I would be looking at trading Hannan for Heeney

      musicissport · 15/05/2017 at 18:44

      Would love to but already skinny in r11 for players.

    Juzzy · 14/05/2017 at 23:47

    If you had Nank as ruck cover from the get go then this is when you use him.

    Thinking a premo in the midfield might be good but as your rooks are all making money would't know who to ditch.

JohndJames · 14/05/2017 at 23:32

Changing my trades slightly from what I planned,going Hampton to Hanners and Parsons to T Mitchell.Then the week after will go Otten to Laird,then sit tight due to having no money left.

    Russty_ · 14/05/2017 at 23:55

    Sounds like some good choices John, should strengthen your team considerably, and then wait to see what pans out..injuries etc…chances are by then, you'll be ahead of whoever you're up against, so , you won't have to make any sudden trades.

      JohndJames · 15/05/2017 at 01:01

      Thank's Russty it will be a change upgrading instead of downgrading like I have for six out of my last seven trades,Parsons was probably more of a rage trade than anything,what a spud,but I needed cheering up after my stuff up with Newman.

Juzzy · 14/05/2017 at 23:38

Travelling pretty well right now.

The byes are scaring me half to death though. Could be nasty.

    JohndJames · 15/05/2017 at 01:18

    I have to second that as far as the byes go,that round 11 is just terrible,even if I bring in players that don't have a bye then,it really won't make a lot of difference,was hoping to have an even spread but might just have to throw round 11,which won't be hard.

Jim · 14/05/2017 at 23:50

Get Pendles or wait on Sloane?

    Russty_ · 15/05/2017 at 00:02

    Forget about the new baby-daddy, his missus will be trying her best to make him focus all his attention on that, rather than his footy.

    JohndJames · 15/05/2017 at 01:08

    Neither just for now.I'm bringing in Hanners and Mitch this week,they look the goods at the moment.

      pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:23

      Agree, wait and see for Pendles

    Northernsoul74 · 15/05/2017 at 07:44

    I'm not regretting bringing in Zerrett last week. Could look at him.

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:54

    Im worried about both. Had a plan to bring both in post byes but i think teams are starting to work sloan out with the hard tag and its bloody hurting him. And Pendlebury is less than interested in football at the moment.

George · 15/05/2017 at 06:34

Is Docherty overpriced? I really need someone solid down back.

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 06:41

    Who else do you have in Def.

Mike · 15/05/2017 at 06:58

Yeo yeo or heeny

    NickMacMan · 15/05/2017 at 09:15

    i also want an answer to this

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 09:19

    Heeney. He's cheaper, plays midfield and is on the way up. Only concern is the bye.

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:21

    Yeo is the real deal this year, problem is i think those of us without him have missed the boat and id rather not conceed 150k to those that had him.

    Heeney looooks like playing considerable amount of midfield time, if i didnt already have 3 rd 11 byes in my forward line i'd trade him in. It's easy to forget that basically all of us had him in our starting line up before rd 1, he's a freak and we already knew that, hopefully the glandula fever stays away.

Rivo · 15/05/2017 at 07:48

Total stuff up and so over this season.

Locked out a minute before trading Houston to Heeney. Lost every game, scored under 2000 for the 3rd week in a row and witnessed the horror of another Tigers loss.

Now tanking for picks. FMS. The nightmare season continues.

20 trades and $163k. Hopefully Treloar returns as it's time to dump the Port spuds.

Houston & SPP to Heeney & Myers. Leaves $145k for next weeks into the byes.

Jim_bob321 · 15/05/2017 at 08:14

What do u guys think of these…
WHE down to James Stewart
SPP up to Josh Kelly..
Only downside is Hampton is still in team
Cheers community

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:12

    I will ride hampton through this week also, he's break even is now 71 so hoping that he won't leak alot of cash in one week.

      Jim_bob321 · 15/05/2017 at 09:15

      But do u like those trades? Kelly has a low BE…. not many people have him

        Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:18

        I started with Kelly in my team. Personally i think he's an absolute gun, great by hand and foot, tackles hard and has a big tank. With some key stars out of the GWS side, he's currently their number 1 midfielder. If you watch closely players want to give him the ball whenever they can, similarly to dustin martin. If you're after a POD i think he'll average 108-109 for the year.

        Providing you can handle another rd 13 bye, I like the trades.

          Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:57


          Not so sure about going early on James Stewart – refer to Mitch Hannan.

            Jim_bob321 · 15/05/2017 at 10:20

            Just thinking, who could be a prime downgrade target from WHE apart from Stewart in order for me to get Josh Kelly?
            Daniel Lloyd?

            Thomas · 15/05/2017 at 12:30

            Correct me if im wrong, but he was referring to people who brought in Mitch Hannan after his 96 in round 1. hasnt scored above 55 since.

neil demons delight · 15/05/2017 at 08:34

looks like the midprice style was the way to go Olver Steele murphy Nank Witts Sandi wish I knew earlier

    Derek · 15/05/2017 at 09:19

    the problem is, for every mid-price winner, there are 10 mid-price losers

    i have had about a 1:10 winner:loser ratio over the years.

      Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:30

      I agree, keep in mind the losers.

      Hrovat, JOM, Swallow, BMurphy, Watson, Caddy, Miller, Roughy, Jmartin, Mills, Kolodjahnij, Carlisle, Weitering

      You get my point.

    Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 10:29

    Mid price options are always ok if you get the right ones. They stand out a bit more this year due to some pretty average rookie outputs

Derek · 15/05/2017 at 08:40

I would imagine Myers will be the most traded in this week.

Anyone thinking of trading in Newman army thinking clearly. Won't make that much money, has a r11 bye and basically poor JS with Rampe due back very soon

    INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 09:06

    2 more weeks from Newman would be perfect

      Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:07

      Good thing we'll get them.

      Derek · 15/05/2017 at 09:20

      yes, for those who already have him. But no-one will pay $322k for him now.

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:09

    Also, id question poor js, surely this was enough for some coaches eyes to be opened and realise how good he actually is. Based only on his average he's a top 10 defender at the moment.

      DefyingMadness · 15/05/2017 at 10:18

      I would not be surprised if he plays 1 more game and gets dropped

    Bells · 15/05/2017 at 11:52

    Newman will fill the hole left by McV who is out with hammy. Fair JS as long as he isn't defending close to goal.
    Rampe will come in for Melican or Marsh. Melican prob due a rest.

Banga · 15/05/2017 at 08:51

Got Butler, SPP, Parfitt and Hampton all on the chopping block this week. But only got 30k and 20 trades left. Whats should i do?

    Mash · 15/05/2017 at 09:01

    SPP has a bye probably get rid of him

      Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:11

      I'd disagree, depending on your teams bye structure at the moment. He can be a handy 70 points to play on field during the first one or two byes if you're struggling, also with a BE of 54 he still a litte cash left in him.

        Touk tuk · 15/05/2017 at 09:21

        Agree… holding SPP

    TOPHAWK1 · 15/05/2017 at 09:16

    Keep SSP. Unless your team 3+ Gold Coast /Port players. If this is not the case just put SPP on the bench. His BE is low at 54. Parfitt is the first bloke that has to go. Will not play again for at least 8 weeks. Trade him out of your midfield for a bubble boy. Myers? That trade would increase your coffers to around $140K for a fallen premo upgrade. Either Hampton or Butler, depending on your structures and byes scenario. Both have quite high BE's and are both bleeding cash now. (71 and 70 respectively). Trading out either would give you around $430K to snare a fallen premo. (although you might struggle to find one at that price). Otherwise you can go down to another bubbleboy this week and go 2 premo upgrades next week. Good luck mate.

      Banga · 15/05/2017 at 09:24

      Thanks for the response mate. I was originally thinking Butler down to myers (via balic DPP) and Hampton to maybe Mcinnes if named which leaves me with 300k to upgrade parfitt to a fallen premo next week. Thought that pariftt isnt bleeding cash and if treloar is named, i have cover so don't need to trade yet. Although all it takes is one big score and they rise in cash again.

VARC · 15/05/2017 at 09:17

JOM to Myers this week is my first trade but unsure who to upgrade with the cash (will be holding onto Rocky pending outcome of scans).

Can go Butler to a forward less than $499,600 or can go SPP to a mid under $535,800.

Ranked in top 4,300 but largely concerned with league wins – do I go JPK (completely cooking Rd 11), Dusty to help out through byes (not sold on his consistency), or are there some good forwards to look at (e.g. Heeney, N Roo)?

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:49

    How do you still have JOM?

    They're all good options, im going with JPK because im okay with the rd 11 bye at this stage, also he's dirt cheap for the 5th(?) best mid in the game.

      VARC · 15/05/2017 at 10:00

      Haven't been able to get rid of him due to other problems and/or injuries (e.g. would have punted him in the week Parfitt got injured) and given he isn't losing value whilst not playing have been able to hold him whilst waiting for a mid on the bubble.

      JPK certainly appearing the most attractive, worried that Butler will get the axe this week and I'll be left with a donut if Balic doesn't come back in – that might force my hand somewhat.

        Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 10:24

        Yeah i think butler will get the chop. We have sam lloyd kicking 3-4 a game in the vfl, obvious replacement, or even shia bolton has been solid.

        Have you considered heeney? looks the goods

          Cole · 15/05/2017 at 10:30

          I'm bringing in heeney and fully stacking my forward line myself

    Yep I lost my league game by all of 10 points and had Newman on the pine

Rick Grimes · 15/05/2017 at 09:49

Not holding Newman is going to put me way behind others. He now looks like a great cash cow and I'm stuck with the likes of Hannan, Parsons and Balic. Where else are people looking?

    Dildor · 15/05/2017 at 09:52

    Fraser McInnes played his first for West Coast this week and played alot in the ruck. Might be their answer to Lycett and NicNats injuries. He's at a higher 155k price but is a watch this week to see how he goes against Essendons underwhelming rucks.

      Northernsoul74 · 15/05/2017 at 10:06

      Yeah I'm desperate for someone to downgrade Hampton to.

      INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 10:20

      I noticed McInnes shared the Ruck with Vardy as well. Have to keep an eye on that. If he stays in the team he could be handy. Can't pick him before his bubble breaks

    INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 09:56

    Who knows what Ross will do with Balic. Another nervous wait for us owners. Parsons will be lucky to hold his place & his BE is now more than what he has scored in the last 2 weeks. Looks like yet another failed rookie! I've got Balic Parson's & Eddy in my forward line & it's a sad sight. The need to find value & creativity has never been greater Rick

    pod · 15/05/2017 at 10:04

    Newman is top 10 defender, ha who would of thought?

      DefyingMadness · 15/05/2017 at 10:17

      Wont be for long

Garry · 15/05/2017 at 09:59

Is Shaw to Docherty a bad trade?

    Rivo · 15/05/2017 at 10:12

    Bad trade. Hold promos for now, Shaw should still finish Top 10 Def.

    Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 10:26

    If you do that you are effectively writing heater off as a premo. If your sure about it do it but maybe you have more pressing needs. I'm frustrated with heater too but big call to burn A trade going sideways

Ja191 · 15/05/2017 at 10:02

May sound dumb but how about walters for a shark/pod move? Embracing his midfield move with 119/137 past two weeks. Set to rise 55k playing carlton next week. He will play forward aswell but could be a good risk?

Adrian · 15/05/2017 at 10:11

ok people how many trades and how much cash do you have left.

22 and $500k….but my team sucks lol

    Rick Grimes · 15/05/2017 at 10:51

    I'm down to 18. My team's going ok, but my cash generation is putrid. Im what you call asset rich, cash poor.

Benjamin B · 15/05/2017 at 10:20

Will use both trades: who to trade out:
Butler, Hannan, Parsons, WHE?

    Cole · 15/05/2017 at 10:28

    Probably butler and Hannan

    INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 11:13

    Butler & Hannan. Maybe WHE next week. Parsons hasn't made enough

      Curious George · 15/05/2017 at 11:32

      Neither has Hannan but he is a crap rookie.

Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 10:34

Decided to hold spp and finally got rid of Pickett. Wouldn't normally trade on a Monday but feel great about it already. Getting rid of Pickett is like being backed up all weekend and starting Monday morning with an enormous bowel action. Maybe that's why Carlton dropped him, it would explain that creepy little smile on boltons face….

    INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 11:06

    I got rid of Pickett last week for Mutimer. A great feeling of satisfaction. I just have to hope Mutimer holds his spot

      Northerner · 15/05/2017 at 17:10

      Nelson and Cripps will put pressure on him, but could also get another out with injury before then. He looks solid and composed with the footy.

    James · 15/05/2017 at 11:07

    Yep it's always a nice feeling when you purge your system of certain undesirable elements. Wish I could do a colon cleanse with Mountford, Hannan, Parsons and Eddy. πŸ™

      Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 11:23

      I've still got eddy and Joel smith too so I'm hitting the bran pretty hard

        Eric · 15/05/2017 at 11:29

        Sheesh you still have Smith?! What the??

    Ben · 15/05/2017 at 11:37

    Good trade. I'm going Pickett to Myers this round. Holding SPP for now too.. I figure it's more useful to have players that are actually playing to get through the byes.

FEARTHEBEARD · 15/05/2017 at 10:38

So ah question :


Got Dalhaus, Macrae, Nank, Steele to go with 1 of them for now?

    Stinga · 15/05/2017 at 10:45

    I've got the same question ! Yeo or Heeney? Already got 3 sydney players as well (Franklin, Lloyd, Newman)

      FEARTHEBEARD · 15/05/2017 at 11:14

      Hrmm I've only got Newman and JPK

    Ja191 · 15/05/2017 at 11:15

    Henney for me, kids a gun. Would say yeo but he's too expensive for me

Henry · 15/05/2017 at 10:45

Will Jayden Hunt play next round?

He got 56 considering he only played half a game…

Can do otten and treloar for kelly and hunt, thoughts?

    Tibor · 15/05/2017 at 10:52

    I really rate hunt but it was a big hit and he was out for a little while, Melbourne are one of the most careful clubs with concussion so I'd be surprised if he didn't miss one game. Melbourne bye is in the first multiple bye week so the week after might be the right time if you can wait that long

      Henry · 15/05/2017 at 10:55

      thanks mate!

James · 15/05/2017 at 11:01

Anyone interested in getting Harbrow in after he has his bye this week? Has tonned up in 5 of his 6 games which is damn good for a sub $500K defender. Could be a useful upgrade for say a Otten/Hampton/Marchbank type providing full coverage over those major bye rounds as well.

    INPieman · 15/05/2017 at 11:15

    I am considering it. But his number's from the 10 previous seasons make me extremely nervous. Could be a great pick if he can keep up the numbers. But history suggest it's a likely trap

    Bock Choy · 15/05/2017 at 11:32

    I've used Harbrow in previous seasons – generally a good scorer BUT kept getting tripped up with injuries and never really came back. He does look fit now and looks like he can keep this momentum up.

Curious George · 15/05/2017 at 11:34

Any news on Treloar?

Stav · 15/05/2017 at 11:41

Hey guys, I have had M Crouch since the start of the year. IS slightly above his starting price so not losing money on him. Should I upgrade to top line premo or hold? Just doesn't have the ceiling I thought he would. Winning lots of the pill, but DE and handballs killing me.

If you think I should trade; who to?

Other suggestions

Currently have Danger, Selwood, JPK, Fyfe, Pendles as my other premo mids. Plenty of coin in the bank


    Lazza · 15/05/2017 at 12:57

    I'd only take that move if all my other positions were full with Premo's…. fill the gaps then move out the poor performing premos … right now you are getting what you paid for … which is better than quite a few others …

    sfg · 15/05/2017 at 13:19

    I'd upgrade him later on in the season. Also Adelaide are playing a crippled brisbane this week

    Stav · 15/05/2017 at 20:40

    Thanks Lazza and sfg

Dice · 15/05/2017 at 11:43

Full premium fwd line if you count higgins, steele and nank.
But bloody hell michael walters, welcome to my team son
macrae pushes up to mid

    Rick Grimes · 15/05/2017 at 13:55


      Tyruddanaut · 15/05/2017 at 17:59

      Why would you say that. It's just a role change
