Round 9 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on

PanicRoomRd9

After a week or so without wifi, I cast my gaze over my Supercoach side..

I was at first greeted by sunny green pastures, with fluffy sheep dotted about the page, not unlike what I’ve been seeing in New Zealand. Up in the top left, 1879. not bad for a draft side.

Next tab for my classic side led me to a scene not unlike Mt Doom from the Lord of the Rings films. But not like the real mountain, which I saw a few weeks ago and was lovely and pretty and cool. Like the one that’s on fire and covered in orcs and shit. That’s what my Supercoach side looks like. It’s been a month since I cracked 2000, with an 1829 – being outscored by my draft side – the absolute nadir.

PanicRd9Image1.png

This is why we don’t go away during the football season. The price is just too damn high. The supercoach landscape has fallen apart this year, and without reliable access to the podcast, to news updates, to scores – I’ve fallen to pieces. I apologise to everyone I’m in a league with, and to anyone who considered me an expert in this caper – I told you I was rubbish. I’m just here to report the memes and have a few bits of news thrown in.

But I’m being self indulgent – so let’s get into it right after thanking Kev for his absolutely outstanding efforts filling in for me while I was in the wilderness. Okay community, now let’s PANIC!

THE NEWS

I’ve released a new book at the behest of my therapist, Lekdog. I’ve called it Eat Up! How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love Donuts, because eating donuts is what we’ll be doing.

PanicRd9Image2.png

When it rains it pours

We’ve been hit hard in the gonads this week, with Port Adelaide and Gold Coast having a bye after their game in Shanghai on the weekend.

Midfield clearance tycoon Tom Rockliff has managed to injure himself yet again, and will miss two, plus his bye. Trade him.

On top of that, Dan Butler will miss with a groin – which could well just be an excuse to drop him. Harley Balic has been ruled out indefinitely for personal reasons, and as much as it hurts us, he’ll be hurting more from whatever is causing him to step away from footy and we at the Panic Room wish him all the best.

Speaking of stepping away from footy, Jesse Hogan has been diagnosed with testicular cancer, which is awful news for the kid, especially after he lost his father recently.

There’s also concern from the Essendon and West Coast game on Sunday, with David Myers and Kurt Murtimer named on extended benches. Myers should be safe, but make sure you check the final teams tonight. Jy Simpkin is also out through injury.

On the flipside, midfield tormentors Adam Treloar and Dayne Beams are back to taunt our midfields with clangers and woeful team performance.

Harry Perryman and Shai Bolton make their debuts this week, but I’m not sold by either of them – yet. Perryman does have huge wraps on him, though. For the Crows, Jordan Gallucci and Hugh Greenwood have been named to debut.

Dane Rampe and Bob Murphy return, as does Kurt Tippett and a whole bunch of irrelevant players such as Tyrone ‘Sideshow Bob’ Vickery.

One notable concern is Richmond naming Ivan Soldo to partner Toby Nankervis.

EVERYTHING’S DIGGING UP MILHOUSE!

Kev’s rebranding of Trading Places was just too perfect to change back. I love it, so it’s staying. Anyone who objects can spend 3 hours trying to teach me to spell Aykro… Aky… Akyroyd so I don’t have to google it every week.

Everything’s Coming Up Milhouse!

-30 – Michael Walters

-25 – David Myers

-22 – Kurt Murtimer

-20 – Nic Newman

-17 – Sam Durdin

-6 – Jarrod Berry

-1 – Ed Vickers-Willis

Dig Up, Stupid!

212 – Rory Sloane

166 – Adam ‘I’m gonna kick it with my shin” Treloar

161 – Jax Pendlebury

163 – Nick Reiwoldt

150 – Joel Selwood

148 – Nick Roberton

148 – Luke Dahlhaus

 

RUCKING HELL

I have no idea what’s going on. Stef Martin seems to be doing well. So is Big Boy McEvoy. Pick them.

I totally nailed that segment #analysis

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

Okay so the VC should be plonked on someone tonight. As to who that someone is… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Scott Selwood has been named, and I’d wager he’ll stride up to Marcus Bontempelli and wear him like a glove all night. My gut says Selwood but my gut also told me to pick up Tex Walker so go Paddy Dangerfield.

For the captaincy, most sides have figured out the way to stop Adelaide is to stop Rory Sloane, so I’d wager he’ll pick up much more attention from here on out, so I’d steer clear.

I’d probably lean towards Scott Pendlebury to clean up against the hapless Hawks, or JPK from the Swans who has played his way into form. 

Otherwise, the aforementioned Taylor Walker could go massive against a Brisbane defense with an average age of 12 if you want to “#yolo it up”, which is what the cool kids say these days.

ALRIGHT I’M DONE! I’m still in New Zealand and don’t particularly like spending time in hostels when I can be in places like this, which I hiked up yesterday.

So in that sense, I’m unlikely to be around too frequently, but I’ll pop in sometime in the arvo!

Tell me how your last month of Supercoach has treated you? Who deserves a kick up the rear and who’s saved you? And more importantly can someone pls find me another forward rookie kk thnx byeeeee!

Go Blues!

Beezneez

Go where?

Raging Bulls

This is no time for jokes mate…

BarryBee

Go to a quiet corner and harden the F up ……cupcakes ….

iLoveNMFC

Stefan or Dustin Martin?

pod

Dusty is cheap

Hoot

yep and can go huge

Hoot

….. besides Martin isn't a sure thing at R1,2 at his price.

Patch

Would lean towards Stefan myself, but depends on byes and team structure

ProTravo

I tip Martin and the Tiges to get slapped around a bit by the Giants.
I'll pick up Martin next week, he'll go BIG against the Dons.

Westy

Stefan's too old and should stick to his hairdressing empire.

Alex

26k left over and 22 trades ranked around 13000 and I'm new so I'm wanting some suggestions as what to do ! Please help me out 🙂

Laird- Adams- Howe (Stewart)
Shaw- Marchbank- Newman (Hampton)

Dangerfield- Treleor- Cripps- Fyfe
Martin- Merrett- SPP- Taranto
(Fisher, Pickett, Barrett)

Grundy- Sandilands
(Strandica)

Greene- McRae- Dalhaus(parsons)
Nankervis- Roughead- Hoskin(eddy)

Hoot

You must have started too slow. Team looks OK now. Issue is your rank at 13000.

Time to take a risk. : )

I'd get a JJK type player IN and try take advantage of his big 150+ scores (VC even if possible)

Playing safe now wont help if your trying to go top 1000.

Alex

What could I do tho?

Hoot

Id look to drop 2 players, grab one cheap bubble rookie and get one Risk.

Sell 2:
Eddy
Pickett
Hampton
SPP
Taranto?
March?

JJK, Eddy Betts. etc. Depends waht $ you have to spare. these guys can go huge and make a good F7 loop swing in the later rounds.

GL

redherringfc

I'd look to trade Hampton as a priority. Docherty stands out as a back to bring in but very expensive and may be cheaper in the near future, then you probably put marchbank on the pine.
To make the extra cash bring Myers in (make sure he is named at 5:30 or 6 tonight) and trade out WHE, who is probably at his max price. You'll need to put Taranto up front, on field.
If you still don't have enough cash for doc, then Simpson might be your man and if he is too expensive Rance is a bargain at the moment.
Over the next few weeks try to bring in gun midfielders such as Bont and maybe Pendles, when he drops to sub 500k.
Finally, hold SPP until after the byes. He will be great cover.

Randomcliche2

You've got to plan your bye period. How many keepers each round, how many rookies. Going for overall, try and get an even spread, budget 3 trades each week, its the only way to climb. I'd be looking at GCS/PA players who you think can go large, as they come with one less bye than the others as of next week. So that means this week, if you upgrade is the last week you want to buy someone who's had a bye, its equally valid to go double down this week (lack of rookies) and double up next week (if possible). Your backline and to some extent your rucks look a little rnd 13 heavy. I'm buying JPK this week just because he's bloody good value. Oh, and trade, trade, trade.

jez_m

What are we thinking with Andy Otten? With Jenkins not in the side, does he go back to being the second key forward/back up ruck? Does that improve his scoring output? Tossing up whether to go Butler & Otten to Myers and J. Lloyd (or another premo defender). Going Lloyd would leave me with $173K to get Selwood or Pendles next week.

pod

Glad I kept Otten, Jenkins is a dud.

Patch

Otten in that fwd/ruc role is a goldmine – I'd keep a hold of him until his bye and upgrade other players

jez_m

Might just make one trade – Butler to Myers and leave $310K in the bank.

CDS

How is this possible? Butler is fwd, Myers a mid…

LoganJosh7

is butler only 1 week out? hed be pretty handy in the bye rounds? or just flip him over, hes done?

Rivo

Not sure on that one Logan. If Bolton fires this weekend he may not get back until after the byes. I'm hovering over the trade button on him or Houston. Tempted to hold Houston as he may play next week and is good bye cover…

LoganJosh7

yeah i can also afford JJK if i trade him so i might just do it. Only problem is im churning through trades faster than BVC through his twitter feed :/

Patch

Should only have 8-10 left post byes anyway, so churn away. I'd flick him

LoganJosh7

you da man. love the #analysis. most of my trades have been prepping for bye rounds anyways so should be all good!

Rivo

Ballic to Durdin, Stewart, Greenwood, Bolton or Galluci?

LoganJosh7

wait a week or two and youll have your answer 🙂 better to put up with a donut for a little bit and gain the best cash cow!

pod

Sloane was on SEN this morning.. talked up Greenwood. Keep an eye on him if you don't bring him in this week. I'm considering him this week as a cheap downgrade.

LoganJosh7

8 tackles a game is wow!

Patch

I'd take Greenwood. I've gone Durdin as well, but I'm not sold on any of them other than Greenwood

lazza

Not much to go on – but 19 yr old Gallucci stats in the U18 Championships played a mid-forward … had the highest kick-to-h/ball ratio of any mid or fwd player, gaining 422 metres. Won 55% of his contested possessions …. mostly an outside player ..averaged 4 tackles a game.
Whereas Greenwood who is a 25yr old rookie …. is a tackling machine, a goal kicker and with excellent ground ball-gets. Doesn't get a lot of kicks though.
Flip of the coin … but if I had to choose I'd go Gallucci …. should get more action..

Rivo

Thanks lazza. The forecast looks a little wet for Brisbane. Does this tip it Greenwoods way?

Lazza

Interesting to note that Greenwood's SANFL possessions are pretty good …(see table at top of the page) might just sway me back to him ..

Patch

Ripping insights lazza, beautiful stuff mate

pod

Still undecided on VC option. Danger has had 30+ possesions whenever he plays the Dogs. Also Jelwood who loves a big game down the Cattery. Of course there's The Bont, but I think the Cats will win so leaning towards Dangerwood as leading possesions etc.

Patch

It's tough this week. Going Danger, but have hardly seen a game in a month so no idea who has niggles or tags

jez_m

Scott Selwood every chance to go to Bont this week, so I'd probably lean towards Danger/Selwood

Maestro

And it'll be nice and wet at the Cattery tonight, just to add another level of uncertainty! Danger for me.

DacZawson

My team looks decent until you look at the forward line and get a glimpse of Butler, Eddy, Lynch and Balic sitting there ready to munch on a donut

Undertaker

Im there with you mate. Copping a donut from Butler, with Bowes and Eddy sitting on the pine this week

Holty

Im fortunate i dont have any this week but i do have Hannan and Parsons on field which i guess is similar to a donut

BarryBee

Seriously Im sick to death of the Parsnip ….he's been consistently crap since his second game, suckering many of us into bringing him in and then beautifully emulating an actual Parsnip…..the sh*t vege in the Sunday roast that essentially an anemic carrot ……If the rest of my team wasn't full of such potatoes I would happily trade the parsnip for a non playing rookie ……hate the Parsnip

Declan

Is it too late to trade in Berry only about 210k and could possibly go up by another 130k with the increase midfield time. Also now Rockliff is out for next 2 will he be given more of a midfield role? Need to downgrade a defender so that I am able to upgrade butler to hanners/merrett as they both have low BE and its probably the lowest they will be possibly for the rest of the year.

Not many options, not wanting to go to McInness or go early on someone like Perryman and not sure about McNiece is ever going to get named again and can't wait or hope that Scharenberg will be named so is berry the best option and worth the trade?

TBone

Definitely too late on Berry. any rookie not named Myers or Durdin I'd steer clear of for now

pod

Have you looked at Scott Selwood?

Patch

Think you may have missed the boat on Berry – might be worth going early on Perryman

Lok

Rarely do this but I'm in a dilemma so here's my team:

DEF: Docherty, Laird, Adams, Lloyd, Marchbank, Newman (Stewart, Berry)

MID: Bontempelli, Dangerfield, Titchell, Merrett, Pendlebury, Dusty, Fyfe, SPP (Barrett, Fisher, Pickett)

RUCK: Mumford, Sandilands (Strandica)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Franklin, Nankervis, WHE, Butler, Houston (Parsons, Eddy)

Trades: 20

Butler not named so I really need to cover the donut.
So I really want to bring Myers in this week. Trades I were thinking of:
1. SPP -> Myers and Butler -> Heeney (get donut)
2. Butler -> Myers (pickett swing) and Houston to Durdin or Stewart.

Really want to bring in Myers this week and hopefully Heeney. But not sure what to do thoughts?

Slop

I'd hold SPP be handy through the bye weeks and still has cash to make

Raging Bulls

Heeney all the way Brah

Wedge

Durdin was just dropped

Finnius123

Would you prefer: Zerrett and Durdin or Priddis and Myers. Can't afford Zerrett and Myers. Double downgrade next week so cash isn't an issue.

Patch

Prid has been irritating me to no end and I my Zerrett man-crush is rather large. Zerrett.

Finnius123

Cheers patch – am going to pull the trigger

LJB

JPK and Myers can you afford that?

Finnius123

Already have JPK

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS

Pending finals teams: Houston to Myers and Witts to Greene, not keen on copping a donut plus trying to get full premium side as quick as possible, thoughts community??

pod

F*#k Greene

Patch

Not a fan of Tobias Greene myself – would pick nearly any other premo forward above him

Ben

is Tex Walker a good option Patch?

Patch

Looking at his draw, he should be. In reality (as someone who has him) he's been underwhelming since that 170

Finnius123

I reckon he will go huge this week

BarryBee

For his scoring or his bastardly attitude ?

TBone

Looking like I'll take a donut this week in the forward line, with Butler being injured. With $180k in the kitty, is it worth the trade of Butler up to maybe Roughy? who may just be starting to hit form and has the handy r13 bye. Cheers guys

Patch

Would downgrade instead of going to a midpricer and upgrade next week

Ben

cant do myers. is it worth the downgrade to Durdin? dont really trust he'll stay in the team

INPieman

Turdin has poor JS. Like every rookie this year except SPP & now Witts

Patch

Would trust Greenwood over Durdin but it's poking a stick at shit this week and seeing what sticks.

jez_m

Nah I'd just cop the doughnut personally.

Finnius123

VC Tex and Skipper Zach Merrett

Patch

Love it. Ballsy.

Finnius123

Thanks. I might miss out on a decent Danger/Bont/Selwood score on friday night – but the reward of Tex going huge against the lions is too big to pass up.

jez_m

Different, but I don't mind it!

INPieman

Been in a 12 hour crisis meeting trying to work out how to stop 2 donuts! $100 off pulling the pair of trades I'd like. It's time to panic. F*ck

Nick

unlucky Pieman….
Love Kara

INPieman

Geez am I playing you this week Nicky! If so I'll have to line up another surprise!

Nick

Didn't even know l am playing you

Nick

I am not playing u, playing the unsullied

INPieman

Good luck buddy

undypuncher

Are any od the adelaide boys worth taking without getting a look at over the roo boy on the bubble ?

INPieman

Hugh Greenwood for sure. Great numbers in the SANFL & has DPP

Mystic Mac

Hannan and Parsons on field. What a time to be alive people 🙂

Holty

Same

Pitch 72

Parsons must have photos I reckon.

SCdonkey

What to do?!?
Where to start!?!
Why is this happening?!?

Don't panic!!
Yes panic!!

Demmit!! Anxiety is high to the roof!
Effit don't give a hoot anymore!
I'm done with this crap!! (Depression kicking in)

FML!!!

Oh wait YOLO!

To hell with it,
Rage trade bang! bang!

Hope those bangs hit the SCGods in nuts.

INPieman

Harley "I'm leaving you with a donut for personal reasons" Balic! Just says it all really doesn't it!

SCdonkey

I think Balic read way too much of what's been commented in here about Ross. He decided to leave for personal reason (he hates Ross) and wants to go back home and play for another club next season. Bloody wuss!!

Derek

Why do bad things happen to good people

Whitey

What do we think about Hibberd guys? His one low score he still got 24 possessions but just chopped it up a bit that game. Is he a top 6 defender?

Thanks in advance.

INPieman

Top 10 perhaps. Top 6 I'd be surprised. But in a season where value is paramount I think he's a good option at his price. It is evident when Hibbered makes mistakes champion data punish him. Pray he doesn't make to many

Patch

Agree with IN here. Could do far worse than him

Whitey

Cheers guys, thanks.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Patch welcome back.

Boy your team was baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddddddddddddddd when you were over the dutch.

Tell you what Kev did a stellar job in your absence.,

Seems like the hiding I took a couple of weeks again when I did a double downgrade might have been worth it.
Gave me a lazy $700k to spend on upgrades.
Doc and Yeo last week
Another premo fwd this week
Next week JPK/Cripps or Zerrett
Also means I can hold SPP this week – will be handy during the byes.

So far full 22 with Nank covering Witts in ruck, parsons at F6 and two bench options in the middle to cover SPP.

So all good – blow the siren lets play ball….

Patch

I'm still over the ditch, so expect two more weeks of terrible scores until I get back.

You've been doing well for yourself at least! And Kev had a ripper 3 weeks

Luke

Current Team:
Def:
Docherty, Laird, Adams, Marchbank, Otten & Newman (Stewart & Berry)
Mid:
Bontempelli, Dangerfield, Oliver, Treloar, Kennedy, Fyfe, Beams & Fisher (Powell-Pepper, Barrett & Fox)
Ruck:
Sandi & Witts (Strnadica)
Fwd:
Dalhaus, Heeney, Franklin, Nank, Parsons & Balic (Lynch & Eddy)

$379.5k & 18 trades left

Plans for the week:
So was going to trade Otten but will hold now. Need some help though in terms of trades:

Option 1: Balic to Durdin & Fox to Myers (2 downgrades)
Option 2: Fox to Myers & Balic to a Prem Fwd – Today Greene for POD is my choice..

Any other advice would be welcome to.

Patch

Double down and double up next week. I'm not sold on Greene but if you've done your research on him, lock him him

Wal

So I was all set to do SPP to Myers and Otten to Rance, now with Jenkins out am thinking of holding Otten, thoughts?

Patch

Can see the value in holding him, yes. Would upgrade another rook for mine

Wal

Cheers Patch, options are limited unfortunately, all still have a bit of mooing to do, I'm also reconsidering the Meyers trade, could just get Pickett out for him and keep SPP through the byes. Worried about not upgrading this week but hopefully will set me up to bridge that gap and more in future rounds

Buck

Help… I don't know whether to turn DBeams into Cripps or Josh Kennedy (Could also go Zerrett, but my gut thinks the Cripps or Kennedy are better options.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Patch

You've held Beams through his injury, I'd keep holding. That said, Zerrett <3

jake

thought on butler to heeney?

Wal

Good move

Patch

Noice

jordan

is it worth getting marc murphy

Patch

I don't even know any more. I'd go a cheaper Zerrett or JPK ahead of him, but we can't deny Murphy any longer

Raging Bulls

In a fist fight – yes? Looks like he could not take 3 five year olds at once… In SC – NO. That ship has sailed… U will be locking in a loss of loot to a lot of people who had him cheaper earlier. Same for Clayton Oliver. No-go zones… All aboard Titch, Merrett, Bont, Pendles, Danger, Selwood from here…

Josh

What are people's thoughts on Robbie Gray

His averaged 110 3 years in a row and surely he won't have another 30 point game

Cheers

ProTravo

Only two 100+ point games this year, that should be enough to scare you off.

Dice

POD big fella. this weeks rest will help him significantly

ProTravo

You don't think he will continue to play forward?

Patch

Playing heavily forward. Might be All Australian in a pocket, and will give him mid/fwd for 2018, but it's a firm no from me this year

Derek

He will be rested. Has issues with his groins.

Plays forward only so unless Port win, he will be poor

Pitch 72

To inconstant, he could lose you a finals game with his up and down scoring..

Hoot

I might get him as a M9 if im rich come late season.

abs

is there any Freo supporters in da house
M.Walters
is he going to play midfield for at least another 3 weeks
i would love to make at least $80k from him , get his points and he covers me nicely for the bye rds

Temet Nosce

S Hill returns this week, Walters back to the forward line. B hill could be worth a look though.

Dice

i think he'll stay mainly on ball with their new game plan.
would be silly to put him back up fwd after 38 touches

Derek

This is what Ross does

Raging Bulls

I just nabbed hom off the waiver wire in DRAFT coz Devon Smith did his knee… I'm invested in his new star midfield role.

Beady Eye

Hill is back and adding class to the midfield in his absence was Ross' rationale for Walters' role change.

I'd expect he continues to split time until Hill's back up to speed, but he is a natural small forward and that's where he'll end up.

DacZawson

Who should average the most from here on: Heeney, JJK, Greene or Buddy?

Temet Nosce

JJK

Patch

I'll second that

LoganJosh7

hmmmm with balic possibly back in 2-3 weeks im fairly tempted to just hold on him and butler…

Holty

Is that through a source or a guess? He could be another McCarthy and not play again because he misses mum and dad. Although i dont know the whole story so could be bigger then just missing his family.

LoganJosh7

channel 7 apparently

Holty

Cheers mate. I may needs to hold him then

Dice

If I loophole macreadie on field tonight, and have the emergencies on geelongs stewart and o'connor.
Who's score do I get??

Ethan

hoskin Elliot to Myers via Taranto going forward
Then Powell pepper to shuey as a pod, Thoughts

Dean Billman

Go for it mate.

Nick

Silly trading in Heeney this week considering rd 11 bye?
Also who to field out of Barrett, Berry or Myers?

Benjamin B

Berry, Named on the ball

Temet Nosce

agree, Berry

@t_woof

EM Loophole one of the Lions if you have a Powell Pepper, Pickett, Mitch Hibberd on the bench. If scores no good, then roll with Myers on field (if he's named in the 22 later this afternoon).

Troy

VC the Bont or Danger

Pablo

I am considering Dahl? He will be looking to bounce after last week.

SCdonkey

Like to put VC on Danger, like what Macka said he's been playing with sore ribs and playing up fwd. I don't have Bont considering on Dahl as well like Pablo.

Blaknight

Ive got, Bont, Danger, Jelwood, Dahl and Maccrea to VC tonight. Wanna keep faith in Danger but i dont think he'll have a massive night. I think both Bonts and Jelwood will be tagged.

The Ranger

Nice to read your panicked tones again Patch, I think I'm having a similar season to you.
Started badly and then got steadily worse.
I'm going stupidly early on H.Greenwood this week, even it doesn't come off he can be a handy DPP non player at M11 if need be.
Jeez its a tough year!

The Ranger

Is Myers a must have?
Don't see much else coming up to generate cash.

whatyousmokin

Not if put on the emergencies…….even if playing js shaky

Finnius123

agreed. Am actually going to Durdin to save a bit of cash and because he is named onfield. North also extended his contract during the week so they obviously rate him. Also has that round 12 bye.

Choppers

Durdin has been moved to the bench…..check teams tonight at 5pm…

AFL advises NMelb has revised its rd9 interchange bench v Melb.

I/change is Anderson, Swallow, Hansen, Atley, Durdin, Garner, Mountford.
7:47 AM – 19 May 2017

Patch

He's absolutely not a must have rookie. As Jock said today, may be managed, won't score massive too often… I'm passing

Real Talk

Not a must have imo

Jacob

Is it worth going early on Perryman even though not sure about his JS and point scoring capabilities or would you go Berry as good JS and scoring well in midfield?

Derek

Smith out for GWS will help him

Wal

It's never worth going early imo

JDP

Anyone got thoughts on Dom Sheed?

Would love to get some feedback

INPieman

Too many poor scores. Wouldn't even pick him if he was a defender

Liam

What forward rookie should I trade in. Leaning towards McCluggage but not sure.

Or Could hold and play Hannan and parsons.

Derek

Yep. I'm going McCluggage

Liam

He should get some midfield minutes. Go you good thing !!!

pod

With a name like McC-luggage? hmmm..

JustaMug

Think I need to take an early punt (because that's NEVER failed me before… haha) to bring in Goldy and avoid a ruck donut.
Are Greenwood or Bolton worth the risk based on reserves form???

Patch

Greenwood is, Bolton is probably not

JustaMug

Cheers Patch, DPP for Bolton was tempting though

JustaMug

sorry, both got it 🙂

Derek

Goldy will go massive this week

JustaMug

thinking the same Derek, that's why I'm keen to punt on one of them

Stickman

I have Eddy, Houston and Miller all in the forward line with the bye this week.
Should I make a trade or cop a donut. Already traded out butler this round.
Cheers.

Patch

Would downgrade Houston myself

Stickman

Thanks Patch.
Had real problems fielding the 22 each week, this year.

RobDog

Seen a few comments about VC or C on Tex. Word is it will be heavy rain through the match so would be careful depending on a key forward for that game.

Bad_News_Brown

O yeah this week is 'BIG TIME DOMINATION TIME' – I'm moving on those Beer Bellied Sharecroppers in Preuss and Balic and with all that cash sitting in my kitty it's time for DustyDanger time via my Yeo/Ryder swing – kapow and I also dodge the Ryder doughnut that would of sat in my forward line – I pity my opponents this week they won't know whats hit them

Pablo

May fortune favour the brave. I am trading in Bolts and Greenwood (I am not sold on any of the other bubble boys) at avoid 2 donuts. It will either make or break me, but Such is Life.

Just saying

Fortune doesn't favor those who upvote themselves

INPieman

Greenwood I can understand. Bolton will be another poor scoring small forward who will probably be kicked to the curb quickly. I'd rethink that one

Pablo

Thanks for the advice. Reconsidering Bolton.

Seeker

What do you reckon is the minimum amount of cash in bank after any trades this week?

I could probably paint the fence with a premo and a rookie in for two non-playing do-nothing layabouts but I'll be under $100k afterwards.

I almost feel like doing it and if it (*self) sabotages my team, well I couldn't be doing much worse anyway…

Finnius123

Mate I have 2k in the bank after this week. Doesn't matter that much though as I am double downgrading next week. It all depends on circumstance.

Jimmy

team is as below $278,800 remaining in the bank

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

I dont Rockliff, Ablett, Balic and Butler what can i do with my side community

Bradk

Rockliff to bont.

Or rockliff to Jpk and bank the $80,000.

That will give you 350,000 odd to upgrade butler

Bradk

But get bont and upgrade butler. U have enough

Bradk

Nice pods by the way

Bradk

Get yeo

Holty

Bugger it. Been waiting 2 years for Dochs price to drop and just hasnt happened. Was keeping Ottens with Jenkins out but have heard the weather is terrible is Brisbane so i doubt it will suit his game.
Ottens out and Doch in. Thoughts?

Real Talk

With jenkins out otten could return to form as that ruck/fwd. I'd upgrade elsewhere personally, has the friendly rd 13 bye too.

Derek

i'm jelous. i've never owned Docherty

Dice

Same Derek, coz of never wanted to pay overs for him.
here's hoping for a concussion 5min into the 1st!

Holty

I need 2 more premos in defense and dont have Laird or Doch. Fair enough not paying overs and tend to agree going cheaper options is the way to go. but i dont want to be getting to the business end of the season and not having these 2 who are both averaging 15+ more a game then most other premo defenders. Will be hard to win finals when your opponent have these 2 and you dont.

Joshua

Oi don't you dare wish that on our saviour!

ProTravo

Lock it in Holty. Doch is a must have.

SCdonkey

If only Balic kept playing until his bye, now why didn't he just wait until then to take personal leave. smh

I would've picked up Doc this week. I just have to wait until his bye.

Beezneez

I'm waiting to do the trade in round 12 or 13. If you trade Doc in this week you only have him for 2 weeks and you miss out on a warm body in Otten in round 11. I was all set to do that trade this week but need to bolster my mids to a 7th premo. After trading in Yeo to cover Greene I like the look of him (Yeo) in the forward line rather than the mids. First trade is to downgrade and go for any mid this week (probably Mitchell over Cripps for the same reason I'm not getting Doc this week). Even though Otten will drop in price, he still should be at a reasonable amount come round 12 or 13.Patience is the key.

Paul

Thoughts please help
Option 1 WHE to JJK
Option 2 WHE to Heeney
Option 3 WHE to Goldy via DPP
Option 4 WHE to Steph Martin via DPP
Thank you.

Derek

Goldy isn't going to have to worry about Preuss. Will score massive this week and has a round 12 bye. tick, tick tick.

MickyB

Heeney

He Man

Anyone else want to chip in? I've got a tie here lol

Moiteeee

Currently have 116k in the kitty 21 trades and thinking of going balic to myers and tossing up between hampton to rance or hibberd . If i go Rance would leave me with just over 3k left. Thoughts community?

Finnius123

Like Rance's bye. If you do a double downgrade next week then cash isn't an issue. Rance is probably more likely to end up as a top 8 defender, I also really like his ceiling.

Richard

Rance. Better bye structure.

Derek

Have to trade out Simpkin and Balic this week, so Preuss survives again!

INPieman

Does that mean a donut?

Derek

of course not…. i have Parsons!

Daniel Fisher

Watch this, whoever I trade out for Myers will be named next week ….. Pickett or Eddy???

Joshua

Eddy please!

Cogla13

Can you trade Eddy for me?
