Another week of carnage?
Bont-99
Johannisen-77
Dahlhaus-65

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

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

INPieman

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

BlueNath

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

Derek

Everyone has Dalh

Daniel

Or they will once his price drops in 2 weeks.

Gjlane123

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

Swannie

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….

Temet Nosce

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

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

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__

Cripps takes his spot as soon as he's fit

Stirlsy

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

Steeeve

First time all year I've VCd Bont.

Lincoln

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

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

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

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.

Cheers

BockChoy

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

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

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

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

Have you tried Eddy

Stirlsy

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

Doing the same Stirlsy, carn Doch.

BockChoy

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

richard

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

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.

Dogs

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

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

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

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

DavidSA

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

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

DavidSA

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

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

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Anyway……..

Tony

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

Top Gun

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

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

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

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

Flubber

Who do you think will average more over the rest of the season?
Hannebery
or
J.Steven?

KSinny

Hanners

Top Gun

Steven but he tends to butcher the ball

Wedge

He goes to the butcher for kicking practice and haircuts

Steve

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

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

Flubber

who are you trading out for it?

Rabbits17

beams for adams..

CoachDamo

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

Flubber

Perfectly fine trade!

Temet Nosce

Agree, do it

Eidemick

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

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

Steve

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

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

Kev

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

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

Carl

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

Temet Nosce

Agree, focus on the end game

Joshua

Thinking Docherty C over Danger.

Rabbits17

thats what im doing

BockChoy

The key question is the Pendlebury baby watch!

Brett H

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

nothing on his missus instagram account

Liam

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

FCAbel

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

The Guvna

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

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

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?

Jason

Here is the article i was referring too
http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/t

Neverweaken

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

The Coach

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

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

Mark

Pendles or danger as captain?

Kim

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

Danger. He's not expecting a baby

INPieman

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

INPieman

Right. Before you make any capatain selections check for babies

Mark

Hahah thanks guys I forgot about the baby

FCAbel

Swanny again

Rabbits17

raaaahhhh no more babies

James

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

Temet Nosce

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

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

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

Babo

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

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

TEM

POD stands for point of difference

Don't Blush Baby

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

Should have played Newman on the field!!!

Russty_

Der Fred.

Bobby

Who's everyone putting the C on this week?

Temet Nosce

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

neil demons delight

tich

RickeyRat

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

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

Tich vs Brisbane = big tag, take care

Chris_Judd

Who might it be tagging him?

Moe Szylak

Mitch Robinson not playing.

Temet Nosce

Titch it is then

Jeff

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

INPieman

Can't argue with that

Stirlsy

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.

Neverweaken

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

DavidSA

Murphy over the other 2
Agree but follow ur gut mate

gator59

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

DavidSA

Barrett and fisher

Jason

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

FCAbel

I like berry. Playing in guts

Derek

No robinson or Beams. Berry and barrett

neil demons delight

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

DavidSA

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

cashcows

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

Marcus

I'd take that 100%

Alun

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

Luskin star

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

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

DavidSA

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

redgumwon

I just got burnt Treloar into Rocky. Sums up my whole year 🙁

DefyingMadness

Berry, Hampton or Barret on field?

Nick

C on Danger or Sloane?

Russty_

Neither lol

JMac

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

Should I get Heeney or Wingard?

redgumwon

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

CoachDamo

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

Joshua

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

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

Joshua

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

TOPHAWK1

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

hedski

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

TOPHAWK1

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.

pod

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

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

Kev

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

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

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

TOPHAWK1

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

Wal

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

hedski

Traded him a couple weeks ago.

Kev

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_

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

Russty_

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

Kev

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

Joshua

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

pod

Well done Joshua, Doch was awesome!!

Stirlsy

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

Lubing up for the cats game tonight Stirlsy.

INPieman

Let us know how Luke Ryan goes Stirlsy

Stirlsy

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

hedski

Bang!!

Stirlsy

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

Saundo

VC on Zerrett, Danger, Selwood or Eddie Betts?

Russty_

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

Kev

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_

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

Randomcliche

Rocky smashed his shoulder up

DefyingMadness

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

hurman

SPP

TOPHAWK1

Rocky has dislocated his shoulder. WOW

SCdonkey

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

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

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

Dam. TMitch or Cripps maybe

Russty_

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

Derek

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

Russty_

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

Captain Risky

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

Randomcliche

great score this week captain

Luke

Take Barretts score or play parsons?

INPieman

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

DefyingMadness

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

DavidSA

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_

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

SCdonkey

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.
