SuperCoach RD10: The Heroes, The Villains, The Damned.

Published by Jock on

Heroes-Villians-Damned2

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Not so long ago, players like Heath Shaw, Nathanial Fyfe and Luke Parker were hot property in SuperCoach. Their scoring was prolific. They were must-haves.

Fast forward to the present and we have seen a colossal fall from grace. What has happened to these former monoliths?

The par score for this week was around 2200, with many who surpassed this mark taking the opportunity to climb up the overall rankings.

The Heroes

After a few weeks of getting tagged, Rory Sloane (177 SC) was back in a big way on the weekend. Had 30 disposals – 17 of them contested – as well as 13 tackles, 8 clearances and two goals in his side’s demolishment of Freo. The performance saw him regain his mantle as the top-scoring player in SuperCoach so far in 2017.  

Dynamic Cats duo Patrick Dangerfield (163 SC) and Joel Selwood (134 SC) were at it again against Port on Thursday night. Danger bludgeoned his second consecutive 150+ score with 24 touches, 8 tackles and 3 goals, including the match-winner. Partner in crime Selwood had it 33 times – including 19 contested possessions – but 7 clangers cost him a score in the same realm as Danger’s.

Rolls Royces Scott Pendlebury (130 SC), Dustin Martin (125 SC) and Sam Docherty (124 SC) continued their outstanding form this season, cementing their statuses as must-haves. The two Daynes – Zorko (130 SC) and Beams (127 SC) – were prolific for Brissie, amassing 56 disposals, 16 clearances, 12 tackles, 29 contested possessions and 5 goals between them.

Tiger Brandon Ellis (147 SC) went at an impressive 90% efficiency from his 30 disposals, while teammate Bacher Houli (127 SC) had 27 touches at 92%. Blues duo Matthew Kruezer (146 SC) and Bryce Gibbs (140 SC) were enormous for Carlton, with Kruz having 9 tackles to go with 46 hitouts and Gibbs racking up 38 possessions at 86%.

Shaun Burgoyne (144 SC) was the star for Hawthorn in their nail-biting win over Sydney, while Saint Jack Newnes (138 SC), Demon Nathan Jones (130 SC) and Port’s Jared Polec (128 SC) were the best players for their respective sides. Crows key position pair Josh Jenkins (122 SC) and Jake Lever (121 SC) were two of Adelaide’s many good players against Freo.

The Villains

Nat Fyfe (78 SC) and Heath Shaw (76 SC) have experienced severe drop offs in form this season. Fyfe was one of many Dockers to perform poorly in Freo’s embarrassing performance and speculation on his future may be weighing him down. He had 25 possessions but only went at 52% efficiency. Heater gathered only 3 contested possessions and the emergence of Zac Williams and Nathan Wilson is hindering his scoring capacity.

Jake Lloyd (4 SC) suffered concussion early in Sydney’s match in a major blow to his owners, but he should return next week after his bye. Swans teammate Luke Parker (72 SC) endured another quiet match, a trend which is becoming the theme of his season. He’s averaging 90 so far and has only hit triple figures twice.  Popular ruck options Toby Nankervis (75 SC), Paddy Ryder (69 SC) and Stef Martin (62 SC) were down on their usual outputs, as was Bulldog Luke Dahlhaus (78 SC).  

Demons pair Tom McDonald (44 SC) and Christian Petracca (66 SC) both struggled to work their way into the match during their team’s win in Alice Springs and opponent Jarrod Harbrow (77 SC) was a little quieter after a strong start to the season.

Docker Lachie Neale (55 SC) had his first major underpant staining for 2017, while usually-reliable teammate David Mundy (38 SC) was barely sighted.

The Redeemers

Adam Treloar (141 SC) has smashed out two convincing tons since his return from an ankle injury and he looks to have turned the corner. He has cleaned up his disposal efficiency, which has been north of 70% in the past two matches. Teammate Brodie Grundy (120 SC) finally had the sort of match his owners were expecting, dominating Stef Martin on his way to 38 hit outs, 19 disposals and 6 tackles.

The form of Scott Selwood (112 SC) has provided us with an interesting conundrum this week. He has been highly impressive in his first two matches since returning from injury. At $280K, could be a nice stepping stone if he can maintain this sort of output. Only had 15 possessions but a staggering 17 tackles and a goal helped to boost his score.

Shaun Higgins (120 SC) enjoys splitting his time in between the Villains and Redeemers sections, as does Adelaide’s Matt Crouch (123 SC). Kudos to those who held Callan Ward (107 SC), who helped inspire his side to a break through victory over the Eagles.

The Prodigies

With the byes hitting us from this week onwards, trading in rookies will be crucial as we look to make the final upgrades to complete our teams to full premium.  

Of the players on the bubble this week, Crows hard nut Hugh Greenwood (72 SC) looks the standout. Averaging 88 after two matches, he’s almost a must-have. Shai Bolton (43 SC) and Harry Perryman (32 SC) are the other two candidates, but their job security could be an issue.

James Cousins (67 SC), Jordan Cunico (41 SC), Tim English (37 SC), Will Brodie (31 SC) and Dallas Willsmore (26 SC) all made their debuts on the weekend and had varying impacts, with the Cousins looking the pick of the bunch. It’s also worth keeping an eye on Collingwood’s Matt Scharenberg (65 SC) as a defence rookie option, as he played his first match in several years.

Defenders Andy Otten (121 SC), Andrew McGrath (101 SC), Tom Stewart (91 SC), Nic Newman (71 SC) and Caleb Marchbank (70 SC) rewarded those who started them on field with handsome scores, while forward Mitch Hannan (88 SC) made it two excellent games in a row after a run of sub par outings. Jake Barrett (77 SC) continues to be a reliable on field option in the midfield.

Tim Taranto (72 SC), Blake Hardwick (65 SC) and Will Hoskin-Elliott (64 SC) produced acceptable returns, while Harrison MacCredie (38 SC), Zac Fisher (35 SC), Todd Elton (31 SC), Will Hayward (28 SC) and Sam Petrevski-Seton (26 SC) were well below par.

Hugh McLuggage (56 SC), Sam Powell-Pepper (55 SC), Lewis Melican (55 SC), Daniel Lloyd (53 SC), James Stewart (50 SC), Ed Vickers-Williss (50 SC), Jarrod Berry (48 SC), Oliver Florent (47 SC), David Meyers (45 SC), Brad Scheer (44 SC), James Parsons (42 SC) and Tom Williamson (40 SC) were all in that classic rookie 40-60 scoring range.

The Damned

A leg injury, believed to be a calf, spells bad news for Josh Kennedy (56 SC) owners. The gun West Coast forward faces a decent spell on the sidelines and may need to be traded out depending on how long he is out for.

Touk Miller (58 SC) is turning out to be one of the biggest let downs of the season. His owners picked him hoping he could elevate his game to top 6 forward status, but sadly he hasn’t got anywhere near reaching those heights. He’s averaging a mediocre 79 and has only hit triple figures twice so far this season.  Speaking of let downs, Josh Caddy (55 SC) continues to thoroughly disappoint those loyal owners who still have him. If you are one of those unfortunate people, you need to offload him now.

Jobe Watson (78 SC) looked to be a bargain buy at the start of the season, but you could almost argue it would have been the right call for him to hang up the boots instead of playing on in 2017. Hasn’t looked the Jobe of old and it’s possible the game may have passed him by.  

Some unlucky coaches have Taylor Walker (26 SC) sitting in their sides. He played a full game on Saturday night and you would have thought in a 100-point mauling he would have had a field day. Nope. No chance of being a top 6 forward and needs to be moved .

 

How did you go this week?

Is anyone considering Scott Selwood this week? $280K midfielders averaging 100 don't grow on trees. I don't think he'll maintain that scoring output but he could be a quick cash generator.

Derek

Relys too much on tackles. Won't keep it up

whatyasmokin

Last week somebody said he won't get 17 tackles every week. Considering he defied that with another game of exactly 17 tackles I'm taking it as a sign.

DavidSA

I'm avoiding the temptation and hope he gets taking roles when cats have stronger teams to overcome. That and he is injury prone

DavidSA

Tagging*

ProTravo

I think almost everyone will be considering him. He's a bye friendly cash generator that should score reasonably well.

INPieman

For sure. 90+ & a quick ride up to a fallen premo sounds good to me

redgumwon

I'm thinking Barrett / Berry or SSP to Scott Selwood this week.

Dutch

Will have to be considered, could generate $100k+ over his next 3 games which you won't find readily at this time of year.

I am considering moving on spp for him, thought I would need him over the byes but I have coverage for all 3 weeks even without him.

Mike

Im going Barret to Selwood for quick cash hopefully!

Swans2012

Remember swallow scored something like 90 and 120 in his first two games….then has been reasonably poo. This said I'm seriously considering…..

Cr0magn0n

Yes sir I am

redgumwon

Just had a thought RE: Scott Selwood coming into our sides this week,Geelong play Adelaide. The Sloane Ranger really doesn't handle the taggers really that well. Geelong's best tagger would have to be Scott Selwood? So it mightn't be the best idea to trade Scott Selwood in at $280k this week? I've changed my view and won't be trading in Selwood now as he is almost certain to tag Sloane

Stanks21

He will go up close to 50,000 regardless and some taggers like selwood actually get the ball more when they tag and i guarantee he will get huge tackles again.

redgumwon

More like $70k but then Geelong run into West Coast, Fremantle, GWS, Brisbane, Hawthorn & Adelaide again, I can see plenty of tagging assignments to come for Selwood in that lot? I can't see him having the high scoring output of his first two games. Is burning a trade to make the same amount of cash as a $117k rookie worth it?

Stanks21

Yup because if he keeps scoring well then he could stay in or be an easy upgrade to a premo.. he wont do worse than half the rookies around atm.

redgumwon

That's fair enough then I'd say you've made up your mind and now all you have to do is hit the trade button 🙂

redgumwon

Well looks like you've got a plan then

Leeds17

I know Geelong held him back, he could have played a lot earlier they even held him back from VFL games, so i think it's been a concerted effort to give him every possible chance to get back to his 2012-2013 form, he looks fitter than last season & definitely needed in Geelong's make up, obviously his tackle numbers will drop but I can see him getting a few more touches a game,
I suppose you ask yourself the question if he averages 85 are you happy with that? and is that he enough to achieve what you want from him? Expecting more than that from him seems dangerous to me.

SCDamien

Villians: Chris Fagan, Archie Smith, Brisbane's match committee, Liam Shiels knee

INPieman

Can I add the prick that tagged Jeremy Howe. I wanted to reach over the fence & punch him in the face

Nick

i loved every moment of that INP…unlucky over the weekend

INPieman

Haha Nick. If only I had Otten onfield instead of Marchbank. Bugger

Jim

Didn't know Otten could muster those kind of scores with Jenkins in. Boy oh boy wowee

INPieman

Shame he can't play Freo at home every week. I think that was a one off. Don't get attached

Dutch

Tend to agree with pieman, but glad I held him, will appreciate a bit more now. A pity I had him sitting on the pine

redgumwon

And it was wet. He's done very well for a big fella in wet conditions

matt

Sloane, Pendles or Selwood?

whatyousmokin

Pendles

Wal

Pendles

Jack

Ben Nason

DavidSA

5 of my players in the villain section ouch!

Derek

Only 5!!!

DavidSA

Haha how you go round gone mate

Bock Choy

I had 7!!! I expect I'm not Robinson Crusoe here either!

Ben

Forward line is a mess with it currently being: Yeo, Nank, dahl, kennedy, saint nick, parsons, durdin and houston. Thinking of needing to get Greenwood in there somewhere. Possibly hold houston for coverage during byes. All thoughts would be gladly appreciated. Got $154,000 in the bank and want to trade in players that will play this week due to only having 17 players playing in round 11 including durdin and kennedy in that count(didn't set up for byes at all, lol). However, dislike cameron and greene a lot but they might be only options for kennedy.

Derek

You should get McCrae. Will be top 6

Derek

Buddy and Ryder won't be far from top 6 either

Ben

Yeah, was thinking of Ryder. Problem with McCrae and buddy is they have there bye this week, but I'm not competing for rank so could just suck it up.
So go Parsons/Durdin (if not named) to Greenwood and kennedy to Mccrae/buddy/ryder?

Gary

macrae and buddy have bye this week

Leeds17

I don't know about Ryder, thought he played really well Thursday night and it only translated to 69 SC points.

daniel

Houston even playing?

Ben

Well hopefully he'll get back into the team but yeah, if not he's probably out for Greenwood.

LoganJosh7

best downgrade option out of cam McCarthy and WHE? (im all sorted for byes so need to go like for like for greenwood)

Ben

I would trade McCarthy out, they both have similar breakeven around 85, so basically who do you think will do better on Sunday. I would think WHE has the capacity to hit 85 while it's unlikely for Cam so yeah, getting rid of mccarthy would be my pick.

SF4

Get rid of McCarthy

Mike

If you had to choose two out of Hibberd, Simpson & Lloyd who would you go?

Benjamin B

Simmo next week,
Loyd round 13

LoganJosh7

hibberd is a gun atm – simmo not as consistant.

Lloyd later on will be a gorgeous price

Mike

was thinking Marchbank to Hibberd, Stewart to Lloyd and maybe WHE to Macrae all next week!

Hoot

Im off to the trading mill.

I will buy green wood and then sell wood.

Hopefully turn a profit.

Dildor

Crouching will love this one

bob the builder

Im trading JJK out if he's out for 3+ (including bye)
Should i trade to a fwd (either yeo or heeney)
Or trade to a mid via DPP? (selwood, dusty or sloane)?

INPieman

JJK said he heard a pop. That's not good. Be prepared for a lengthy spell. Any of those options you've mentioned look good. Pick the best fit for your byes

INPieman

Watched Scharenberg in the flesh yesterday. Struggled early with the pace of AFL footy. But he worked his was into the game & his second half was impressive. His bye is the pain point for me. Pendles aside he's probably the next best user of the pill on the Pies list. The man can hit targets

TheScacman

Bucks must have read our thread from last week Pieman. Next stop, lose Blair

INPieman

Blair for Callum Brown sounds good to me Scacman. Then Buckley for Roos

redherringfc

You are a source of great knowledge, but Buckley for Roos is being a bit optimistic.

noirlust

Love your hard on for this bloke pieman.

INPieman

If he can live up to his junior pedigree he will be a defensive lock for a long time to come

mzd

Hey guys just a quick 1. Initially was hoping to have just enough to upgrade butler to Wines, but wines hasnt dropped enough so can only afford the likes of R.Gray. It's doesnt seem to much of a gap does it ? Gray had outstanding scoring form last season. Thanks.

whatyousmokin

Wouldn't want either

INPieman

Agree with WYS. Gray is playing as a forward

kanetrain10

Black > H Greenwood
Upgrade Newman to Adams/Hibberd, depending how much you want to spend

TheScacman

Lose Aaron Black for Greenwood, the money leftover should allow you to upgrade Taranto for a premium mid by swinging Dahlhause into the forward line. Could go uber premium and get sloane/danger, or grab Dusty/Treloar for 520-550

Dutch

Are others in the same predicament as me? Many of my fattened up rookies are scoring well and have more money to make – Otten, Barrett, Berry, Stewart – holding on to them for another 2-3-4 rounds delays getting to full premo, but getting rid of them now may mean not being able to afford the best premos. Decisions decisions.

INPieman

Agree Dutch. I have Newman Otten Marchbank Barett SPP Stewart. In a year it's hard to get cash you don't want to go too early. Also downgrades are a problem & their bye suitability

Derek

Pre season, i was going to be alot more aggressive with trading out rookies, that was my mistake last year took too long to get to full premium, but with cash generation a problem this year i have held back.

I got rid of most of the dead bench (Smiths, parfitt, Eddy's etc) so i have all playing rookies except Preuss and Pickett. Right now i have enough cash and fat rookies to upgrade over the byes to have full premium team by round 14 as long as i don't spend over $565k per premium.

Moustachio

I would argue the opposite… To make enough cash we need to use more trades this year. Cull early, cull often and pray.

The Ranger

Who have you been praying to Moustachio?
'Cos the bloke I've been praying to is rubbish and just isn't getting it done.

daz

Yes pretty similar situation, I will go early on a few just because i think their scoring potential isn't great and will only make you extra 15-20k if that play to their avg. will go a week early on Barrett, stewart and maybe taranto- but full premo is better and if I don't trade aggressively I will have otten, WHE and taranto and perhaps the likes of the mentioned above if I let them fully fatten, it just doesnt work.

Stirlsy

Yes in same boat, but 1 or 2 will have to go on their bye, really have no option i gotta take a couple of the rookies on the bubble as they come along.

Stinga

Similar position, got Taranto, SPP, Barrett, Berry, Stewart, Taranto. Gonna hold off trading these guys out till someone juicy appears after their bye. Went fisher to Scott Selwood though so hopefully he fattens up also

Mash

Know the dilemma Dutch. Have been thinking like Moustachio and went early on Otten to Lloyd. Rewarded with a splendid 97 seconds of service and 4 SC points (= nearly 3 points per minute) from the Jakester. Only cost me 2 trades, 117 SC points, $155k to upgrade and $55.7k in price changes so far. Seemed like an excellent idea at the time …

Defying_Madness

I am keeping both Berry and Barret this week as I can field 18 and struggling on the cash for Doch. Round 13 is the big problem for me as i have a lot of premos from that round and not many rookies

iLoveNMFC

OUT Marchbank IN Scharenberg
OUT Fisher IN Dusty
OUT Hannan IN Bolton

Only way I can field 18 and upgrade a rookie to a premium, thoughts?

BlakeyP

You have held Hannan through all thr shit he has been putting out, hold him that little bit longer to get all the money you can from him. Has a negative BE. Also I think Boltons JS is slim at best

ToughBretts

You'd be mad to trade out Hannan now that he has a negative break even finally
There are enough basement priced rookies right now that you can sideways a non-playing rookie to somebody on the bubble

ToughBretts

(The first two trades I like though)

whatyasmokin

Terrible.

SF4

The first 2 trades are good but trading out Hannan as soon as he has hit some good form would be stupid.
Btw have you already got Greenwood?

iLoveNMFC

There's no one else apart from Hannan…
Newman will provide good cover
Myers will still make some money
Barrett is scoring well and making money
Stewart will provide good cover and has a low BE
SPP is vital for the bye rounds
Parsons won't give me enough money for Dusty

B-rian

Trade newman

Wedge

Yep. Newman b/e at 80 and having the bye.

Doggy

Looks like I'm tanking round 11, not by choice. Rookies I needed get dropped last round and jjk going down means I'm down to 14 on field. That's if sandi is back.

kanetrain10

Hey guys, just after some trade advice for this week; This is my team:

Docherty, Laird, Adams, Otten, Marchbank, Newman (Stewart, Berry)

Danger, Fyfe, Hanners, M Murphy, L Parker, Pendles, Beams SPP (Barrett, Myers, Fisher)

Martin, Sandi (Nank)

Dahl, Macrae, Greene, J Kennedy, J Stewart, Greenwood (Parsons, Eddy)

ignore nank as an emergency in the ruck, thats a non issue with the bye rounds, i wont have all 3 playing in the same week, when its time to downgrade a FWD i will swing him forward and add strndica in the ruck.

I have 16 trades left and 197k in the bank, only 15 playing this week (at best) after Kennedy's injury. Any advice what i should do? Thinking of trading Marchbank, Kennedy (assuming his injury is as bad as it looks) and thinking of cutting my losses with Parker, especially with the bye this week. I dont like trading premiums but he is having a shocker this season. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Cheers

Stanks21

PP, Marchbank, Otten and Barrett need to go ASAP. You need to start downgrading and upgrading them.

Defying_Madness

Barret needs to go ASAP?????????

whatyasmokin

Otten with BE of 26?

Stanks21

Yep. Rocky will be back soon which will see Barrets minutes in the Mid go down…

wightyswarriors

MY apologies to silk and his family. After last week I chastised him for leaving a long brown smelly 40 point stain in my pants. His 144 this week won me my round and again confirms sc 101 re not sideways trading prems.

INPieman

I'm seeing Silk & his family at 7 O'clock when our boys play basketball comp. I'll pass on your apology!

wightyswarriors

LOve it !

Sellars1226

Bloody hell just when I trade out McGrath and Stewart they decide to score well. Can I get any good luck?!

Slop

What are people's thoughts on Robbie gray more midfield time or to risky a pick?

INPieman

It's the groin injury he's been carrying that is the biggest deterrent

whatyasmokin

Too risky.

SF4

He's too valuable in the forward line for Port, I cant see them taking him out of there.

jez_m

He'll be first picked in everyone's forward lines next year, but I'd steer clear for now.

Luke

Hey guys, just after some trade advice for this week;

This is my team:
Docherty, Laird, Adams, Otten, Berry, Newman (Stewart, Newman)

Danger, Fyfe, Kennedy, Oliver, Treloar, Bont, Beams SPP (Barrett, Myers, Fisher)

Witts, Sandi (Strnadica)

Dahl, Buddy, Greene, Heeney, Nank, Lynch (Parsons, Eddy)

Trades Left: 15
Cash Left: $335,700k

Thinking of 2 trades for this week
Fisher to Bolton
Eddy to Greenwood

kanetrain10

Eddy to Greenwood, Fisher still has $ to make and bolton doesnt have great job security so dont pull the trigger on that one.

Maybe look to upgrade N Newman as his BE of 80, look at Harbrow, Z Williams or Hibberd

Luke

Will be holding Newman and trading him to a perm after his bye. Most likely Roberton or Hibberd

whatyasmokin

Trades look good, how many on field this week?

Luke

17 or 18, will be dependent on trades and who gets named.

whatyasmokin

You could do Newman/Berry to Sharenberg this week to provide 18 players on field. Then trade the remaining player to Hibberd/Roberton.

See how team announcements go and only do the Fisher trade if it means securing 18 players for the round.

The Eddy>Greenwood is obviously a lock in regardless.

Stanks21

Need to cull PP and Otten ASAP.

whatyasmokin

What are you on about. Otten is playing this week and just scored a 121 and has a 26 BE.

Stanks21

Mate he will slow down. They played Freemantle…and Adelaide have Jenkins back and other players to come in. Trust me on this, i follow Adelaide

whatyasmokin

None of what you said matters. he plays the next two weeks trading him out after round 12 is perfect and he can go up another 40K. I'm also a crows fan lol.

Sellars1226

Sorry just decided to delete my other comment-
Option 1. JJK and Eddy > Greenwood and Heeney
Option 2. JJK and Fisher > Greenwood and MaCrae ( he has a bye this week so still not sure )

Any other suggestions welcome!

jez_m

Don't trade in Heeney or Macrae, they both have byes this week.

Sellars1226

Do u have anyone that I could bring in?

Mick

Eddy > Greenwood, Fisher > S Selwood

jez_m

I'd consider Yeo or even Tom Lynch from GC. I'm holding Kennedy as he probably won't miss too long with that injury, so if you can afford to hold him I would.

Wazza

Is eddy ever gonna get another game or is that wishful thinking?

INPieman

Probably when you don't need him

BoiToi

In his last 4 games at SANFL he has kicked 5,5,1 and 4. This is week would be his best chance.

jace

Monfries will come in before Eddy.

SCB

Watched him play on Saturday, he's been good and think he should be given a shot. However SANFL is much slower and Monfries looked quite slick and fast with his skills. I think Monfries would be the first to be called up. Can't see Port dropping 2 to bring Eddy in.

Cogla13

Needs Dixon to break a leg.

joe

If McInnes gets picked, there is your obvious swap. He'll probably play the next 2 or 3 weeks while JJK is out. On the bubble, too.

Andrew

Have 17 players playing this week (will be 18 if eddy plays but that won't be happening)
Is it worth trading him to Bolton or Zac Fisher to Cousins?
Already have Greenwood

jez_m

Wait until he's named on Thursday.

kanetrain10

16 trades left.
197k in bank.

JJK to Higgins
Marchbank to Z Williams
Newman to Harbrow

Leaves me with 13 trades and 44k in the bank. Will need 3 changes if im a chance to field 18 this week.

Just a thought at this stage, any other ideas please let me know!

nankthetank

I've had Zaccy Williams from the start and have never looked back, very solid choice

Swans2012

I'm considering a triple wood injection into my team this week
Spp-Scotty selwood
Swallow – Joel selwood
Ball lick- greenwood

Round 12 bye no problem, the sellwoods are as cheap as they will get, greenwood looks like a quick job secure 150k plus.

I think this is my solution…..

Leaves me 11 trades and 90k and one off full premo (not including sandi and witts) which will most likely be scooter to the bont in a few weeks. Byes will also be somewhere between good and ok….

whatyasmokin

That's a large intake of wood.

Swans2012

Maximum relevant wood

INPieman

Dear Supercoach Gods,

If Luke Ryan gets named this week I'm bringing him in. Now you be nice to me you bunch of ass clowns.

Sincerely,
INP

Derek

i went with my gut, and brought Scharanberger in last week (OUT Marchbank).

It did cross my mind to get Ryan last week because i had Stewart 91pts on the bench with E and no loophole.

INPieman

Last time Dockers had a bad one Ross kicked 6 to the curb. Hoping he does something similar

LoganJosh7

only problem is hes brought most of them back and they henceforth got spanked again. never ending circle ross old pal

Russty_

I went with my gut last week too Derek and brought Scharenberg in and played him, putting Otten on the bench, therefore allowing me to swing Hibberd into the backs and get Otten's score, Hope the Berg stays in the side.

Top Gun

Magic eight ball says yes

kanetrain10

who else is in the 5% waiting for luke parker to pull his finger out??

hedski

Thought it was starting with his 120 other week.

Danners

One of them would be me, no idea what has happened this season

Tommo09

Thinking Balic and JJK (pending injury) to S.Selwood and Mumford

Thoughts on my team (after trades) only have 17 playing this week unless Eddy or Hibberd get a game

Def: Adams, Laird, Simpson,Tuohy, Hibberd, Newman (Stewart, Hibberd)

SF4

You can probably go Eddy/Fisher to Bolton. Bolton should keep his spot in the Tigers side which means he will make some good cash.

jez_m

Agree, Eddy for Bolton this week to keep the cash coming in.

Tommo09

Am I too far away from full premo at the moment??
I may just hold and downgrade to non playing rookies after byes

James

Is it time to pull the trigger on parker or should we hold?

kanetrain10

I'm on the fence, I have other trades to make so may have to hold. Depends on if you have other trades to make, how much cash and what your bye structure is like. If all else is well, I would probably trade

Adam

Giv plowman a crack

Top Gun

Hold.

jez_m

I'm with Kanetrain, it really depends on where the rest of your team is at. The bye might do him good and he could average 105+ from here on in. I'd hold and make him your last upgrade

Blaknight

Considering the following this week.

Hardwick, Balic, Fyfe OUT Bolton, SSelwood, Sloane IN

waynesworld

I would be a bit worried of a hard selwood tag on sloane.

Harrison

Should I trade Sloane for Aish now or wait for the byes to end. Thoughts would be appreciated?

ToughBretts

Sloane is not going to get cheaper than he is right now, pull the trigger

Side-note, why in the hell would you have James Aish to start with

B.T

James Aish, Boy oh Boy Wowee.

Jack

Is Liam Jurrah on indefinite leave cause wanting to bring him in for some X factor. Thoughts??

INPieman

He's holidaying with Harley Balic

Josh

Perhaps Josh Bootsma may be a suitable replacement for Jurrah? Traded him in a few weeks back.

TRIGGER HAPPY

I guess we need to shift our Guage this week.
Week 1 of the byes you generally downgrade to create cash to bring in Rd 11 premos in Rd 12.
Besides greenwood who is smokin (already got him) there ain't much else.
Bolton and Perryman – meh do have DPP but is that worth bringing in 40 points p/w?
May break conformity and go SPP – Sloane or pendles as about as cheap as u will see them.

Derek

i'm thinking the same. why have a stash of cash for round 12, when i can spend it now.

I'm thinking of going

OUT: Newman, Preuss and Parsons

IN: Sloane, Pendlebury and Greenwood.

Adam

Like it

BigBuggars

I just wanted to apologize to everybody for f*&king up the Bont:
ROUND 8
OUT
Hampton ($305,500)
IN
Bontempelli ($605,600)

Richard

Fyfe is not life but in strife and get rid of that stupid hair bun thats holding you back.The old song "Will i stay or will i go" is playing on his mind,but like Ross the Toss and Freo Nat "You gotta get out of that place'

ToughBretts

wat

Top Gun

Cues "Oh when the Saints……."

Russty_

Agree Richard, maybe when he ditches the girly hairstyle he might start playing like a man.

Holty

Was seriously considering bringing in Pendles S Selwood and the Berg this week but it would be at the expense of Newman and 2 of the biggest price risers for the next few weeks in Barrett and Hannan.
With a lack of rookies generating cash i just cant justify bringing in pendles. It could be my undoing but if i stick to my guns, should still get to full premo just after the byes

Top hawk

JJK looks like he will be out for a considerable amount of time. As I have him, it is time to move him on. Thinking of doing the following trades this week.

OUT- Eddy (unless named). IN- H Greenwood
OUT- Mutimer (unless named). IN- S Bolton or Scharenberg
OUT- JJK IN- Pendlebury (Via DPP- Balic)

Thoughts guys?

Tony

Would like to bring in S Selwood this week but could have 9 playing midfielders already and none are DPP

nankthetank

Relies far too heavily on tackles, 7 tackles a game (his average) is nearly 60 points out of 100, if they go he's not gonna get close to a tonne. I'd look elsewhere

Sellars1226

Time to pull the pin on Fyfe?

jez_m

No, hold until the rest of your team is complete.

wightyswarriors

SC 101…NEVER trade a premo sideways……treloar, hanners, and burgoyne come to mind

Stanks21

Unless its Shaw haha ! Has had to much time and hasnt gotten better…

TigerNut

Josh J Kennedy owners….do we hold or trade?

Top hawk

I am saying hasta la vista to JJK. I reckon he is gone indefinitely. Going to turn him into Pendlebury this week.I can't wait till after his bye as he will probably be another $30-40K dearer.
Cheers

Tiger

I'm saying goodbye to him as we won't see him till round 14 at least

Tiger

Dearer?

jez_m

I should be able to cover him through the byes, so I'm holding at this stage (pending an update from West Coast).

INPieman

Looked bad & he heard a pop. Smells like 8 weeks to me & see ya later

LoganJosh7

hold

Mattyboy

Guys what is the best site for BEs in an xls for Round 10 please?

nankthetank

Footywire.com
Has the lot

Mark

Sorry guys I got Bont in 3 weeks ago, Kennedy in last week and Lloyd 2 weeks ago. I'm getting Sloane this week so prepare for a 60

Tiger

Yep he'll get the Scott Selwood tag this weekend

INPieman

Hard luck Mark. Could you bring in Docherty instead

Mark

Maybe after his bye. I started with Simpson over him at the start of the season as well

INPieman

I also went for Simmo. Then Bolton started mucking with his role!

Maestro

could you bring in Trelor and Neale this week please. My opponent has them.

Russty_

You'll never win Supercoach with such a self defeating attitude Mark….lol

Danners

Basically done the same thing Mark, I brought the Bont in then, and like you will probably bring in Sloane. We will go down together…

garfield_da_cat

Hi all, my plan is to bank cash to trade out marchbank and bring lloyd (syd) in around rd 13 or 14 . I have 66k in the bank at the moment and am thinking of either trading Eddy to Greenwood which leaves me with 75k or Houston to Greenwood which leaves me with 238k. Any thoughts?

nankthetank

Thoughts on rookie downgrades for next week and week after to get fallen premos after round 13? Looking to get in Neale, Lloyd and potentially Macrae.
Thanks community xx

INPieman

Cousins for the Hawks did well. Keep an eye on him

nankthetank

Got him in this week, looks to be a very good ball magnet

Jambak

Is it Newman's time to go?

Real Talk

Are you high?

Jeremy

BE is 80. Yes.

Mich

Also yes

Keenbutclueless

It's close. If we weren't all dreaming of him being a half decent D6, we would definitely be pulling the trigger. The ideal way would be R12 and go to a premium from RD 11 that you don't have – Doc, Simpson or maybe Hibberd. Alternatively you can hold him for 2 weeks and trade him down to Lloyd in RD 14. I don't think he will bleed too much cash in the meantime. He might also be great cash generation this week if you want to bring in Ryan or Scharenberg

Personally, I am looking at the Lloyd trade in Rd. 14

Derek

I think so

TBone

Hey guys. Deciding to go hard on the trades the next couple of weeks, as I have 19 left. This week thinking about
Newman to S. Selwood
Bowes to Greene
Marchbank to Doch (Yes i know he has his bye this week)

then next week will be able to go
Barrett to Scharenburg
Petracca for Franklin
Fisher for Cousins.

These trades would be bye friendly and leave me enough money to go SPP to Bont while he will be at his absolute lowest before rd13.
Thoughts community?

Pops

Silly trades…all of them

TBone

how so Pops? what should I do differently?

Keenbutclueless

If you are going to bring in Scharenberg and Doc in successive weeks, it makes more since to bring in Scharenberg this week to get his points this week and Doc in round 12.

I think we all like to buy low and sell high. In that case you are buying high on Doc and selling low on Barrett

Tom

Fyfe to Pendles to complete my mid?

wightyswarriors

I SAy it again…..never sideways trade a prem..its sc 101……remember hanners and treloar ??

Tyruddanaut

Already almost set my trades this week. (YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH AND EXPLANATIONS. SHORT SUMARY AT THE END.) Had 300k odd in the chest so decided a double upgrade would be necessary. The only problem is that I'm not set on any defenders. I've already got the top of the range Laird, Doch and Adams but I can't figure out the rest. Ended up doing my first trade after a bit of thinking.

Williamson to Hibberd.
Considering both their byes are this weekend, I might prolong this trade til next week but Hibberd looks like the best option. His previous 3 games were nicely done and has an avg above 100

Next is a more controversial trade but hear me out.
SPP to Wines.
They both don't have any byes so there's the coverage taken care of. SPP has appreciated nicely and it's time to take the lamb to the slaughter otherwise it will start bleeding cash all over the field. Wines on the other hand is at an all time low. 460k odd and he's only going to go up. Averaging above 100 and having a nice few games, it's the perfect example of buy low sell high

Eddy to Greenwood
Simple, coverage for this week and next week. In addition I can bring Dahl into FWD and have a full premo Mid/Ruck/Fwd. 3 in the back of I don't do my first trade but 2 if I do.
Almost at full premo but may trade roughy out later

Summary:
(Possibly) Williamson to Hibberd
SPap to Wines
Eddy to Greenwood

Thoughts?

wightyswarriors

POST is too long

Tyruddanaut

You don't have to read it, you realize?

LoganJosh7

when you spend time commenting on a long post which is wasting just as much time as reading it haha

Russty_

I like em Tyruddanaut…I'd go ahead and pull the trigger, your team will be much better off for it.

Swans2012

Works for me

JohndJames

All three work,as far as your defence goes,Lloyd will also be a good pickup,a week or so after he comes back,should be around $60,000 cheaper than what I paid at the start.

whatyasmokin

There's someone on here talking shit about you btw their name is floghawk.

LoganJosh7

who cares

Pops

Too soon for the fisher cull

Stanks21

Who isn't it to soon to cull on?? Wanting to get Selwood in as I see him scoring better and will go up in price a lot.

whatyasmokin

No it's not. He will barely go up with his crappy scoring and isn't playing this week. Worth culling over other rookies if trying to field 18 and low for this round.
