SuperCoach RD8: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned

The future is now. We are seeing a changing of the guard, Community. The old firm has given us plenty of good memories, but the time of the young bucks has come.

A new wave of the brightest young SuperCoach prospects has emerged and boy did they put on a show on the weekend. The likes of Cripps, Kelly, Oliver, Merrett and Mitchell were absolutely prolific for their respective sides, smashing through the 130-point barrier in scintillating fashion.

And then there was Nic bloody Newman. A late inclusion into Sydney line up on Sunday, the youngster proceeded to smash out an incredible score of 151C.

The exuberance of youth has propelled these players into their prime ahead of time – they have well and truly arrived.

The Heroes

Patrick Cripps (157 SC) led all comers with a masterclass for the Blues. Had 30 touches – 20 of them contested – 11 marks and 2 goals all at 80% efficiency. Start the year off slowly after a back injury limited his pre season. Looks to be approaching full fitness now and should dominate for the remainder of the season.

Horse is really messing with us now. He didn’t pick Nic Newman (151 SC) initially, but then snuck him in as a late inclusion against the Roos. By then, most coaches had either traded him out or had him sitting on the pine. He had 35 disposals and 11 marks in a stunning display. The Swans are back in a big way, and their mids in particular had a day out against the Roos. JPK (137 SC), Dan Hannebery (134 SC), Isaac Heeney (130 SC) and Luke Parker (122 SC) all got in on the action.

Those who started with Josh Kelly (147 SC) would be pleased as the star Giant has been incredibly consistent this season and almost single-handedly helped his side get over the line on Saturday. Had it 36 times with 11 tackles and a goal. The Demons had a field day in their 51-point mauling of Adelaide, with Clayton Oliver (142 SC) leading the way with 30 disposals, 10 tackles and a brilliant goal from the boundary line. Team-mates Jack Viney (130 SC), Christian Petracca (121 SC) and Nathan Jones (120 SC) also joined in on the party.

Ball magnets Tom Rockliff (147 SC), Tom Mitchell (135 SC) and Zach Merrett (137 SC) were simply sensational for their respective sides. Rocky had it 30 times, 21 of them contested, and racked up a monster 13 tackles as well. But he dislocated his shoulder late in the match and faces a stint on the sidelines. Opponent Mitchell gathered 36 possessions and 9 tackles in another productive outing while Merrett was brilliant for the Bombers with 33 disposals and 12 tackles.

Sam Docherty (132 SC) is on track to be the number 1 defender in SC for the second consecutive year, accumulating 26 possessions, 11 marks and 6 tackles. However hot on his heals is Rory Laird (124 SC), who was one of the few Crows to perform in their disappointing loss to the Demons, racking up 37 disposals. Young Saint Jack Billings (136 SC) had a break out match with 30 touches and 5 goals while team-mate Seb Ross (129 SC) is proving to be one of the finds of the season, producing another good game which included 31 touches and 2 goals.

When Max Gawn went down, many coaches had the choice between two options  – Brodie Grundy and Stef Martin (125 SC). Those who went Stef should give themselves a big pat on the back. He was excellent again tallying a huge 63 hit outs and 10 tackles. Speaking of gun ruckmen, Sam Jacobs (141 SC) has again entered the conversation. After a couple of barren years, big Sauce has returned to vintage form in 2017, smashing out an enormous 74 hit outs.

Speedy Freo forward-turned-midfielder Michael Walters (137 SC) absolutely cut Richmond apart with his run and dash while gun mid Lachie Neale (129 SC) continued his scintillating form after a slow start to the match. Andrew Gaff (121 SC) was close to best on ground for the Eagles in their win over the Dogs, gathering 35 touches and 15 marks to go with 1.1. West Coast teammate Shannon Hurn (121 SC) had it 28 times, including 20 kicks, at a proficient 89% efficiency.

Other players to break the 120-mark for the round were Bomber Michel Hurley (127 SC) and Swan Sam Reid (127 SC).

The Villains

It was all meant to fall in to place for Brodie Grundy (83 SC). No Cox – check. 46 SC at quarter time – check. Due for a big score after a month of mediocrity – check. So what the bloody hell happened?

Bulldogs Luke Dahlhaus (65 SC) and Jason Johannisen (77 SC) did not register a single tackle between them, with Dahl only having 4 contested possessions out of 25 and Top Deck just 3 contested touches out of his 26. This was the main factor for their low scores.  

Jeez, Heath Shaw (77 SC) has featured in here a few times already this season. We are all waiting for him to hit his straps and it hasn’t bloody happened yet. Seems to be impacted by the emergence of Zac Williams in particular.

Veteran Saints Leigh Montagna (75 SC) and Nick Riewoldt (75 SC) have now appeared in this section two weeks in a row and could be starting to slow down in their old age. Scott Pendlebury (77 SC) appeared to be distracted by the impending birth of his first child, but, hey, at least he didn’t have to leave mid-match. Cats pair Joel Selwood (78 SC) and Zach Tuohy (66 SC) were ordinary in Geelong’s loss to the Bombers.

Rory Sloane (70 SC) had his second quiet match in a row and was hindered by a Bernie Vince tag. Expect teams to deploy this tactic on him for the rest of the season. Fellow Crow Matt Crouch (79 SC) again could not reach the heights expected of him. Superstars Gary Ablett (80 SC) and Robbie Gray (76 SC) did not standout during their historic Chinese match, while Swans pair Lance Franklin (82 SC) and Zak Jones (63 SC) were quiet despite Sydney’s strong victory.

The Redeemers

Elliott Yeo (109 SC) is defying his previous Yo-Yo reputation and is starting to produce a season of real substance and consistency. Now appears to be a must-have forward. Jarryd Roughaed (99 SC) continued his resurgence with 2 goals while Jack Steele (114 SC) played one of his best games for the Saints.

Marc Murphy (108 SC) has shrugged off several injury-plagued seasons and now looks the real deal in 2017. If he continues his current form, a top 10 finish in the midfield is not out of the question. The only concern is his injury history which – as is evidence with Dayne Beams – could re-emerge.

The Prodigies

Despite his modest first two scores, David Meyers (57 SC) looks the goods for the Bombers and his position in the Essendon side appears safe. He should be the number one trade-in target this week if you are looking for a downgrade.

Expensive trio Tim Taranto (82 SC), Will Hoskin-Elliott (75 SC) and Andrew McGrath (66 SC) justified their price tags with solid performances. Brisbane’s Jarrod Berry (71 SC) continues to improve with every game, while fellow Lion Jake Barrett (59 SC) did enough to hold his spot.

Ed Vickers-Willis (79 SC) had a much-improved outing for North, while counterpart Sam Durdin (48 SC) started to find his feet in his second match. Jy Simpkin (6 SC) copped an injury early. Swans rookies Will Hayward (38 SC) and Lewis Melican (31 SC) were unable to cash in on their side’s big win.

Port’s Sam Powell-Pepper (70 SC) had a decent outing in China, while Gold Coast opponents Jack Bowes (52 SC) and Brad Scheer (27 SC) must have been impacted by the pollution and hefty travel time. Freo’s Cam McCarthy (66 SC) looked lively up forward, while Tiger opponent Todd Elton (22 SC) was barely sighted.

Carlton’s rookies Caleb Marchbank (63 SC), Sam Petrevski-Seton (59 SC), Zac Fisher (39 SC) and Tom Williamson (38 SC) failed to impress as did Cats trio Tom Stewart (46 SC), James Parsons (38 SC) and first-gamer Mark O’Connor (28 SC).

Giant Daniel Lloyd (54 SC) looked OK on debut, while West Coast’s Kurt Mutimer (53 SC) and Hawthorn’s Blake Hardwick (32 SC) didn’t get enough of the ball to have an impact.

The Damned

Crows pair Andy Otten (56 SC) and Curtly Hampton (52 SC) did not make their break evens this week and lost cash. Now is the time to move them on before they bleed any more coin. Melbourne opponent Mitch Hannan (30 SC) was again deplorable and surely won’t be in the Demons side much longer, while time may be up for Richmond forward Daniel Butler (36 SC) as well.

Cyril Rioli (75 SC) looks to have done a serious knee injury and will be out for a number of weeks, while Tom Liberatore (34 SC) just hasn’t been the same since his return from a serious knee injury. He had only 8 disposals despite playing 85% game time.

 

How did you go this week, Community?

Thoughts on Steele Sidebottom, averaged 100+ last 4-5 seasons and has fallen away due to crap DE and clangers. Any chance he'll return to his peak

jez_m

At this stage it looks unlikely. Won't be a top 10 midfielder by seasons end.

Danners

Maybe wait a bit and take a punt on R.Gray, could be $440k in a couple of weeks

INPieman

Robbie Gray in carrying a groin injury & is playing as a small forward. Buyer beware

psyrick

Robbie Gray has been carrying a groin injury for years now, it doesn't really seem to affect him much. While he heavily targeted in the Port forward line, the risk of him getting shut out of games by a good defender is too high to consider him as a good mid option though. Also Wingard is now the preferred mid option to rotate in (might looking to pick him up in the forward line) but I think Hinkley likes switching up rotations so he will still see some mid time, just resticted.

Top Gun

Staying away from any Collingwood mid atm

Peter Demetriou

Personally think there are some better value picks like D.Martin, R.Gray & Z.Merret (Not that cheap)

pod

Yesget him if u can

John H

I'm putting myself in the damned section I can't take a trick I give up goodbye supercoach world

Bells

Is Myers worth bringing in? Pretty ordinary scoring. What is his JS like? Getting to the stage where we just want someone in on the bench who will play for rest of year plus a few rock bottom priced guys.

Henry

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?

whatyasmokin

Sorry Henry but those trades are garbage.

Whilst I like Josh Kelly he's not a top mid, not really a POD really either at 7.9% and there will be people chasing his 150 so that ownership may go up. Can see players Like JPK, Zerrett and Fyfe averaging more for the season from here on.

Jayden Hunt is unproven.

Babo

Yeo Yeo… What to do…..

1. Buy NOW.
2. Wait till after WCE Bye.
3. Too Late.. search elsewhere.
4. Wait for his sub 70 Sc which is inevitable.

Ben

3 or 4 I think. There are better value picks.

redherringfc

i'm hoping he crashes back to reality and realises he is not a supercoach premium (this year).

I'm going to see him out for this year and then give some serious consideration for him at the start of 2018.

Heeney is almost 70k cheaper and hopefully (because i bought him last week) going to be as good as yeo.

Raging Bulls

2 into 4

Xan

Any forward rookie options to bring in this week

INPieman

Parsons is cheap. And rubbish

Lazza

James Stewart / Essendon $170K .. won't be on the bubble till next week.. Scored 91 in his first game ..

INPieman

Desperate times when Stewart is the 2nd most traded in player this week. He won't be doing that every week

neil demons delight

great stuff Carl how bad is Cyrils injury..Myers is a must have now

Kev

If you're in the market for a mid downgrade, sure, but I wouldn't be going early on a SPP/Barrett. Myers hasn't been that impressive

Daizy

Gotta pick up the good cows when they present.
Myers is a non negotiable this week for mine

judd0

Thoughts would be appreciated:

Option1:
Otten to Myers via DPP
WHE to Heeney

Option 2:
Otten to Laird
SPP to Myers

I personally like option 1 as I think holding Powell Pepper will help me through the byes and he will make a little more coin, as well as Heeney still being cheap and WHE starting to lose cash.

Option 2 does slightly suit my bye structure better and probably has a better points generation. However I can get Laird in later down the track.

wightyswarriors

juddo, how do you get otten to myers via dpp ???

Lazza

Probably has Adams or Berry in the middle … can Sub them into DEF and fill the MID .

wightyswarriors

course

Matze

Hibberd or berry swing? Or Lloyd or Adams if he's got them in the mids

judd0

Traded Otten out, then swing Mcgrath (Ess) into DEF.

wightyswarriors

of course…i was only looking at my team….cant do it sadly

Lazza

Option 2 … though I suspect you have better options than SPP (BE 54 / AV 68)… he is still earning and if you can bench him for the bye he would be a good cover for the remaining byes … then trade him out R14..

HallyMate

If I go Marchbank to Dusty and Hannan to Myers this week my team will be:
Def- Laird, Adams, Howe, Lloyd, Rance, Newman (EVW, Stewart)
Mid- Danger, Titchell, Fyfe, Treloar, Dusty, Murphy, Bont, Barrett (Myers, Fisher, Pickett)
Ruck- SandiWitts (Strnadica)
Fwd- Dahlhaus, Macrae, Yeo, Franklin, Nank, Steele (Balic, Parsons)
16 trades and 160k in the bank
How does this compare to where a team should be at this stage of the season? Thanks

jez_m

Looks good to me – you've only really got two rookie upgrades to do on field plus a few mid-pricers after that.

Joe.

You are BURNING through the trades. Be careful.

Travo

Looks about right, I see you have used a lot of trades. What's your overall ranking?

Kev

Like the quick upgrade, HM. I'd hold off trading now until at least round 11. Target Sloane, his price will drop in a big way

whatyasmokin

Marchbank BE only 47, not a big fan.

redherringfc

Assuming Newman has bought himself a few weeks, you'd probably put Marchbank on the bench, so there isn't much point holding him any longer. Hannan is a shot duck. I can't fault your trades.

Contrary to what some say, if i was in your position i'd still continue to upgrade/downgrade when the rookies look to max out or just to fix that Parsons problem.

Top Gun

Thanks for making us all feel crap about our teams. Lol

Joe.

No, he is a score-whore.

Steeeve

Take a donut with Witts? Can't swing Nank. Only option would be R3 Preuss to Strnadica. Which would mean another round of Parsons/Hannan/Balic dropping turds in my forward line instead of bringing in a forward premo. Thoughts?

INPieman

I have the same issue. It's a tough one. I don't want to get rid of Witts. Going up to another ruckman doesn't seem to have enough worth. He's kicking ass for what we paid for him. I also don't want to get rid of Preuss. But it will mean a donut. Don't know Steeeve. I certainly know how you feel

Harry H

I'm copping the donut as don't want to get rid of Witts. I have it on good authority B Scott made the fair ultimatum to Preuss that if he can total 200 hitouts to advantage and kick 12 in the twos each week he'll be strongly considered

Derek

If Preuss not named this week that is it for him

Steeeve

If he could be named just for this week that would be absolutely bloody fantastic!

FCAbel

Better to trade pruess if between him and witts

Babo

As I expected to do so, Witts needs to be upgraded. Who is the best option is the real question…

whatyasmokin

Witts doesn't need to be upgraded, you'll be upgrading him just to score well in round 9, when your trade in ruck will be out in a later round anyway.

Top Gun

Liking Goldie at this stage.

Goat

Pruess is in my team long term. Saving him for a rainy day. Nothing compelling in the ruck to warrant attention for just 1 Rd.

iLoveNMFC

Thoughts community?

SPP to Myers

AND

Hannan to J Kelly or Martin

Jimmy

I recommend you don't go for kelly, great player but not a top ten mid IMO. Rather go for someone proven of similar price like JPK.
Just my thoughts

Ja191

I'd hold SPP, still a bit more $ to make and should be useful through the bye rounds. and you'd much prefer a JPK/Crips/Selwood eg then Kelly. Martin should be good too

iLoveNMFC

I've got JPK, Selwood is under an injury cloud and Cripps can be a little up and down sometimes.

LoganJosh7

RIP this community convincing me to trade newman when he wasnt named.

oh supercoach

Derek

I was told to keep him another week by our friends here, was told to get rid of Hampton instead. Pretty happy about that advice

LoganJosh7

hampton was my first trade

Daizy

Make a decision on ur own.
Too many rely on people to make crystal ball decisions for them then get upset when the advice doesn't come off.

whatyasmokin

Exactly.

LoganJosh7

oh relax ya babies – im more deploring supercoach in general. besides the people who complain that our scores arnt similar to DT scores are way worse 😉

whatyasmokin

lol who told you to trade out newman?

FCAbel

Should gave held him. He did really well

Top Gun

I don't remember pushing your trade button??

jimbo

Community,
First trade is Hampton to Myers via Berry but am not to sure with who to upgrade Butler to?
OPTION 1: Butler>Macrae leaving $130k
OPTION 2: Butler>Stef via Nank leaving 170k
OPTION 3: Butler to Goldy via Nank.
Stef and Goldy have bottomed out this round and will most likely smash their BE's as goldy plays melbourne.
On the other hand macrae is steady and it doesnt look like his price will be fluctuating too much.
Should i go bang to a ruck now or bring in macrae for some consistency, team is travelling decently at this stage.
CHeers

Jack

Buy low, sell high. McRae is a must have forward indeed, but keep a lookout for a poorer game from him and a price fall. The money you save by going to Stef Martin now may come in handy when bringing McRae in later whereas Martin's price will rise from here on out.

It's that reason that I'm opting for Heeney this week over McRae.

redherringfc

Sauce looks the real deal, at 510k, might not be this low again.

redherringfc

525, not 510. still good value.

Wellsey

While Hampton and Otten are getting a game, I'm holding. They'll even out at between $300 – $370k with their poxy average and can be downgraded when an appropriate option presents or upgraded to a called premium with $100-$150k. With my shot at the $50k all but knackered, I'm saving trades for a late run at my cash league. Just need to scrape into finals. Plan to have enough trades and bankroll to cover the ensuing resting drama that is certain to come my way.

whatyasmokin

They should both be gone, but whatever.

whatyasmokin

One should've been traded to EVW*

Other could've been upgraded to a cheap Shaw, Simmo etc.

lok

EVW not that good.

redherringfc

not newman like, but 79 isn't too bad.

INPieman

Can anyone recall a better rookie performance? I can't recall a rookie ever cracking 150. If horse doesn't pick him this week I'll be paying his a personal visit. That was a masterclass. It came from 77% TOG. Which means he sat on the pine for 1/4 of the game. Absolutely astonishing

iLoveNMFC

Cripps’ 172 a few years ago was decent.

INPieman

Ah yes in New Zealand. I'll pay that. But it was his 2nd season. He played 3 games in his first season & entered that season at an inflated rookie price. But boy was he worth it

LoganJosh7

barlow first year did some amazing things i recall? dont think he hit 150 tho…

neil demons delight

oliver last week not bad

Kim

It was but wasn't his first season so doesn't count in my book as a rookie

Derek

I think Oxley might have gone 150

Travo

Yeah I agree, he does everything right for SC. Kick to handball ratio is great as is Disposal Efficiency and marks from opposition kicks quiet often. I think he might end up being a keeper.

Steeeve

What about Connor Menadue's 130-odd from last year? That was like Ablett scoring 500,000

INPieman

Who could forget the one off Spuadue game!

redherringfc

equalled his season point from all other games, if i'm not mistaken.

lok

Barlow, Cripps and Zorko were the best rookie picks from memory.

Top Gun

What about Dawson's 150 score across 10 games 😛

neil demons delight

check out his goal of the year last sat left snap

pod

Agree Pieman, it was one of the best ever. Horse must play him every game.

Zach

My team as it is
Ranked 11,000 with 20k leftover
Simpson, Williams, laird (Stewart)
Adams, marchbank, Newman (Hampton)

Danger, Hanners, treloar, t.mitchell
Selwood, Fyfe, Powell-Pepper, taranto
(Fisher, Barrett, Pickett)

Grundy, Sandilands
(Strandica)

Franklin, McRae, Dalhaus
Nankervis, Roughead, Hoskin Elliot
(Parsons, Eddy)

What trades this week help me out

Matze

Depends how many trades youve got up your sleeve? Hampton needs the boot but just him out doesn't give you much coin to play with. youll probably have to double down with pretty much zero def rooks on the bubble. You could bring in mcniece and trade Pickett out for Myers? I'd be stuck too!

Alternatively you could trade out Hampton and WHE and that gives you 680k ish to spend on maybe heeney/yeo and a rookie or doch and a rook??

Or just one trade Hampton down to anyone playing in defence.

bUCKET__

Goldy vs Pederson is looking delicious after seeing how many hitouts Jacobs ate up this weekend. Welcome to my side, you underpriced horndog!

INPieman

74 hit outs to 22 was a slaying. Makes the Dees win all the more impressive. My concern with Goldy is opposition with good midfields shark him. He doesn't have a great midfield under his feet & so I can't see those massive scores we have seen in the past. Nonetheless you raise a good point

SCDamien

How seriously can we take Walters?

INPieman

Oh boy. Now that is a ballsy pick. Relying on Ross to look after you & keep him in that role all season is the ultimate balls out call. You are really temping the gods here. If he goes back forward you can look forward to the 28 scores like he did the week before the 2 tonnes. Good luck

whatyasmokin

Oh crap………

FCAbel

Should make decent cash at worst if he goes fwd when Hill returns.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Anyone else got the Witts dilemma this week?
If Pruess isn't named then I'm think of going straight up to an underpriced Goldy or maybe even Ryder, two tonnes in a row and creates a dpp link with Nank in the forward line?
Thoughts? Keeping in mind I'm not keen on copping a donut.

Lazza

Might want to reconsider your timing … Ryder has a bye this week.

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Haha good call…

Boltons Blues

What the flaming hell do with do with the spud treloar?
If he isn't selected I've considering trading him down to Myers, and using the cash to upgrade either, Butler, Balic, Parsons, pending selection

whatyasmokin

Ditched him last week his injury was the perfect excuse.

redherringfc

he'll be back and hopefully score like we know he can. I'm holding for a couple of weeks if necessary. I won't make full premo if i waste trades like that.

whatyasmokin

Using trades and wasting trades are two very different things.

Moustachio

You won't make full premo if you hold onto non-premos

Frank the Tank

JPK showed on the weekend why you hold onto your premiums. Hold.

DavidSA

I dont have Pendles but what are season long holders gonna do?
Guys gonna drop down to 525k most likely the next two games he plays which is insane.

Sideways trading to generate cash might be a good option players like

Viney
Gaff
Scully especially – very cheap has not hit the tonnes too much but is in the 90's heaps and will generate most cash by the sideways downgrade in price.

But of course the above is just one option, hold him or not is a defining moment for people with him

DavidSA

Scully 3 90's and 3 100's and will net you 83k in bank

INPieman

Can't trade Pendles unless he's injured. The signs are very worrying. He's lost pace & can't escape contests the way he has for a decade. It's like watching Superman not being able to fly. He's also carrying a bad case of baby brain. Happens with your first child. For owners I think we can only suck it up & hope things change. If Pendles was in half decent form the Pies would have won that game by 5 goals. But he isn't. In fact that was the worst game if ever seen him play. Much worse than Anzac day. But if you start sideways trading premos you run out of bullets quickly

whatyasmokin

HOOOOOOOOOOOLD

Top Gun

Trading Pendles is like trading Yabletttttttt. You just don't do it!

Dogs

Hold, his value means nothing. Had him from the start, will only trade if LTI

Bitta

I think its time for Matty Crouch to go, just wont be top 10, so would going up to Merrett be a good pick?

DavidSA

not a bad trade
A guy who is 50k cheaper in Martin might be the pick of the week if looking to upgrade in the guts

whatyasmokin

Merrett all the way.

Paco

would i be too late on berry?

DavidSA

I think so bud

Cpt Pugwash

Not at all. With all the great options about (insert sarcasm).

I'd say he'll be on the paddock til seasons end. Safe.

Better than burning a trade on a 3-4 game rookie then he's dropped for the rest of the season.

It's pay overs season for secure rookies people.

Paco

good call!

DavidSA

Just a practice 2 trades atm

Butler > Walters
Marchbank > Hibberd

Dice

can someone inform me of the story involving Mark Murphy and St Kilda??
i know they got stuck into him but im hearing somehow Wayne Carey is involved?
surely hasn't done something stupid again.

red

I read that Jake Carlisle did a a family related sledged to Murphy.
Murphy then gave him a ear full when him was on the ground.
Jarryn Geary then saw that without knowing the fall story and had a go at Murphy which caused the all in.
I've never heard such booing before by the Saints supporters against Murphy.
Goes to show you need to get a better idea of whats happened before you make a jugement on someone.

Holty

You would have to think what was said would be well below the belt for Smurph to even say anything. He is normally one of the fairest players in the game so for him to react, it is very surprising

Cpt Pugwash

I didn't say anything about Murphy's Mrs. I just thought it.

Bang Bang!

Winter

SPP to Merrett
OR
WHE to Stef Martin

Other trade is Otten to Myers

Finnius123

depends on bye structure. SPP will carry you through the byes though and probably still has more cash to make than WHE – stef is a guaranteed number one in his position.

INPieman

Treloar owners. One thing I noticed in the GWS game was the significant improvement & functionality of the Pies forward line with Ben Reid in it. For the first time in a long time it looked dangerous. If Reid stays there (but who knows the genius Buckley) Treloar's scoring will improve out of sight. Hold him

whatyasmokin

Possibly. But let's face it he's been crap. He got injured. Should've lopped his head off and moved on already……….

Jim_bob321

Ben Reid out for 4-5 weeks bud

Curious George

Any news on treloar and his "ankle" injury?

Babo

This is one of those seasons where anything can happen. . .

It would not surprise me to see 5 new names at the top of the overall score for the season this year.

DavidSA

The big 3 I like to call is is Oliver, Yeo and Steele if you started with all 3 your flying

INPieman

Even 2 of them

Travo

Throw in Marc Murphy too. All teams ahead of me seem to have Oliver and Murph.

Jay

What about Dusty? Should be back to some form soon

Kev

Tiges will get reamed by GWS this week. He loves the Dreamtime clash though, have a look at him then

Jim_bob321

Fellas…
How u like these trades
WHE – James Stewart
SPP – Josh Kelly

Kev

If you have an extra 16k in the bank get Cripps in. I may be wrong but I see Kelly as the main beneficiary of GWS' huge injury list at the moment

Travo

Disagree Kev. Kelly has been consistent all year and since Conigilio came back into the midfield Kelly has looked even more solid.

whatyasmokin

If he didn't just get a 150 you wouldn't be saying this surely.

Nobody was talking about him last week.

Jim_bob321

Lowest score of 92 mate, has been very consistent, just hasn't peaked dramatically like others
He was always in contention of getting picked just not PROVEN yet, until now bud

whatyasmokin

Great player, but top mid from here on? Highly doubtful.

whatyasmokin

After checking season rankings he is very high up, good pick but not really proven. Will probably be a lock come 2018……..

Jim_bob321

Coniglio gone for couple months! Could either play in the hands of Kelly or not… Maybe could increase his UP

whatyasmokin

Doesn't hurt him that's for sure. Great pick but there's so many fallen premo mids it's incredibly hard to pick. makes things interesting this season though.

Very interesting… these decisions will either make or break our seasons.
Thinking about it, in order for other clubs to increase their offers for Josh Kelly….. he'll need to play better

Benjamin B

Merrett, Kelly, Titch or Dusty (Bye Friendly)?

Ja191

Merrett, kids a gun. Brought him in last week put the C on him.. didn't disappoint — Titch also a good option but i like the price of merrett

Sam

Otten, Hampton, Butler, Parsons.. Which of these should I be upgrading (or possibly downgrading) first?

Kev

I'd cash in Otten. You'll make the most from him. Lost almost 16k this week. With a b..e of 88 and a 3 round average of 62 it's time for him to go.

whatyasmokin

Otten and Hampton should both be gone by this week. One should've gone last week, people are taking way to long to cull.

I'm not sure why people still have Treloar………….

Steeeve

Because he's a premo. He's had a poor start but he stormed home last year. The rest will do him some good and he'll storm home again.

At least I hope so.

Not enough money being made from rookies to take a huge loss on a premo who could turn out to be a keeper.

INPieman

Just been on the phone with a mate of mine who's a blood brother at the Swans. Rampe has been training for 2 weeks & expected to line up this weekend. Brace yourselves

Jack

God I hope Newman is dropped.

Babo

Wont they find room for the man who played so well? At someone else's expense..

INPieman

You'd think so. But don't forget Horse didn't like Tom Mitchell either. Just because we think he's good means nothing to Horse

Derek

I think Mcveigh will miss this week

Cogla13

Yep he'll miss a few weeks with old man injuries.

Curious George

No way they would drop him after that game
McVeigh got injured again rampe will replace him

INPieman

Hope that's the case curious

Derek

but then again, Jack might also want to come back in…..

musicissport

Jack is dead in the water and this will be his last year

Juzzy

Considering Newman does seem to have Tom Mitchell disease all Newman owners can hope for is that he has …

No conversations with Horse this week, no eye contact, no sudden movements etc …

If so he should be fine.

Rivo

Any thoughts please here Community?

Jim_bob321

I like it mate but SPP still has some cash in him… if i were u i'd wait till teams are announced like me. you dont know, anyone has a possibility of getting named

Rivo

Thanks Jim. Will do! What a shocker of a season for many of us.

Jono

Butler to sauce Jacobs or wait another week for Grundy? Or even godly? Stef doesn't suit my by structure and don't think big boy can keep it up…thoughts?

Derek

Big Boy has been great. Had a very nice run. I had to get him on the Free Agent list in my draft team when Max went down. he has been sensational. Classic case of him becoming a LONE Wolf. had that pesky Hale and Ceglar sharing with him past few years.

Captain Risky

Bye Planning… Struggling with round 11.

Looking at this week OUT Hannan & Pruess ,IN Myers & Rance
Next week OUT Marchbank & Williamson IN Dusty & McInnes (Hopefully)

That will leave me with at best 17 players for Round 11 byes. No issues with round 12/13 .

Do we get 3 trades next week??

Derek

we get 3 trades week 11 (first bye round)

is there anyone from Port or Suns you like the look of. I have Ryder very high on my watchlist

Kevdup

Also to get ryder next week

Kevdup

Keen

Tommo09

Tom Lynch villain?
29 points

The Stare

The Villians are Gold Coast Execs

Steeeve

Villain is the round 9 bye. I have to wait an extra week for his price to bottom out now. And then welcome my team.

Tommo09

Rookies this week???
Anyone other than Myers??

The Stare

Only Myers

Tommo09

McNiece if he plays??

Derek

tap…..tap….. is this on?

INPieman

Durdin

Crimewave

Traded out Otten to Myers via DPP and Houston to Oliver but any suggestions for other mids, what are we thinking about with Dusty and Kennedy against Oliver?

whatyasmokin

You really gonna get Oliver over JPK?

I have both but it would seem fairly wise to get JPK who is proven over many years for 20K less.

The Stare

Look at the fallen Premiums over what may become a flash in the pan

The Stare

SC LAW – What are the SC rules during the bye rounds? And do these rules apply next week considering Port and GCoast have the bye?

Derek

we just have to suck it up this week. no changes to the rules for this week.

FCAbel

Option 3 if you can find a cheaper cow. Maybe mcniece? Can you use dpp to get Hampton to Myers? Alternatively forget Heeney and find another premo to bring in with Myers which will fit trade.

Jim_bob321

That's why we gotta wait till teams are named. Who knows of McNiece will get named, sadly got rested and never got picked again

Rivo

Thanks FC.
Not keen on McNiece, poor JS. Think Option 1 is better as Myers looks a good get, Heeney on the up, and I don't have a DPP def to make that happen…

D: Doc, Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Marchbank, Hampton (EVW, Stewart) .

Joshua

SPP to Myers
Otten to Adams

The Stare

do it dude Adams is a must

Joshua

yeah he is absolutely flying, started Shaw and Doc then decided Laird over Adams. Heath is killing me!

Finnius123

proceed with caution – look at team lists r.e. injury before jumping on the bus

Joshua

He's in a moon boot for precaution yeah?,hope it's nothing more

Jugger

How many
weeks is Rockliff out for?

Sauce

Probs 2 weeks but then has a r11 bye so should be right r12 I'm holding

Derek

i heard them say two weeks. Seems not enough for a dislocated shoulder. then Lions have Round 11 bye, see him in round 12 would be amazing.

whatyasmokin

Being highest ranked SC scorer he is a hold.

Mark

Who would you choose out of Oliver, Priddis, dusty, or yeo (would put parsons on bench)

Mark

Or josh kelly

whatyasmokin

Maybe Yeo to get Parsons off the ground.

Mark

Yeah that's what I'm thinking but he is a bit pricy for a fwd

Finnius123

Yeo has a good bye and will get parsons off ground – is expensive though

Panthers1738

Oliver

Jim_bob321

Yeo

Jim_bob321

*Oliver

Jeff

Any good premo forwards that will be consistent over the year other than macrae, dahl, Nank, Kennedy, YEO?

Derek

Ryder

whatyasmokin

Didn't go that well vs good rucks in Sandi, Jacobs and Kreuzer. Could of just been lack of form though hard to say. He is tempting.

SF4

Heeney

Randomcliche2

Higgins. Consistently frustrating.

pod

Heeney ahead of Dahl

John

Any downgrade options for Butler that will play?

Ja191

McInnes for eagles 155k def-forward. only played the one game with 67.. apart from that Parsons – kids gonna finish averaging 150

Andy

Tom Mitchell or JPK?

Finnius123

Look at bye structures. Both will average the same from here on in.

Panthers1738

Mitchell
