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

Published by Jock on


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?

jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 13:29

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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:37

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

      whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 14:58

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:41

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:41


    ProTravo · 29/05/2017 at 13:44

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 13:48

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

    redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 13:51

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

    Dutch · 29/05/2017 at 14:02

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:06

    Im going Barret to Selwood for quick cash hopefully!

    Swans2012 · 29/05/2017 at 14:34

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 18:49

    Yes sir I am

    redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 20:30

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:37

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:43

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:50

          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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:54

            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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:59

            Well looks like you've got a plan then

    wombatsfc · 29/05/2017 at 20:58

    Yep. He's gonna tackle Rory 17 times this week

    Leeds17 · 30/05/2017 at 05:56

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:32

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 13:45

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

      Nick · 29/05/2017 at 14:13

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

        INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 14:16

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

Jim · 29/05/2017 at 13:33

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 13:46

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

      Dutch · 29/05/2017 at 14:04

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:52

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

matt · 29/05/2017 at 13:36

Sloane, Pendles or Selwood?

DavidSA · 29/05/2017 at 13:37

5 of my players in the villain section ouch!

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 13:39

    Only 5!!!

      DavidSA · 29/05/2017 at 13:42

      Haha how you go round gone mate

    Bock Choy · 29/05/2017 at 14:37

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

Ben · 29/05/2017 at 13:38

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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:41

    You should get McCrae. Will be top 6

      Derek · 29/05/2017 at 13:42

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

        Ben · 29/05/2017 at 13:46

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:12

          macrae and buddy have bye this week

        Leeds17 · 30/05/2017 at 05:58

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

    daniel · 29/05/2017 at 19:36

    Houston even playing?

      Ben · 30/05/2017 at 15:10

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

LoganJosh7 · 29/05/2017 at 13:45

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

    Ben · 29/05/2017 at 13:53

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:15

    Get rid of McCarthy

Mike · 29/05/2017 at 13:48

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

    Benjamin B · 29/05/2017 at 13:59

    Simmo next week,
    Loyd round 13

      LoganJosh7 · 29/05/2017 at 14:33

      hibberd is a gun atm – simmo not as consistant.

      Lloyd later on will be a gorgeous price

        Mike · 29/05/2017 at 15:02

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

Hoot · 29/05/2017 at 13:49

Im off to the trading mill.

I will buy green wood and then sell wood.

Hopefully turn a profit.

    Dildor · 29/05/2017 at 15:32

    Crouching will love this one

bob the builder · 29/05/2017 at 13:53

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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:58

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 13:54

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:15

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

      INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 18:34

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

        redherringfc · 29/05/2017 at 20:56

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

    noirlust · 29/05/2017 at 17:42

    Love your hard on for this bloke pieman.

      INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 18:36

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

mzd · 29/05/2017 at 13:56

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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:09

    Wouldn't want either

      INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 14:20

      Agree with WYS. Gray is playing as a forward

    wombatsfc · 29/05/2017 at 21:05

    Why not SSelwood? He's doing better than wines & Gray and his brother gives him the ball as a 1st option at boundary throw ins, if Danger doesn't eat it first

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

    TheScacman · 29/05/2017 at 17:20

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:11

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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:19

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:24

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:57

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 19:19

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:34

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:31

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:44

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 19:50

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:18

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:16

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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:44

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:51

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:52

      (The first two trades I like though)

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 15:05


    SF4 · 29/05/2017 at 15:50

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 18:09

      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 · 29/05/2017 at 19:31

        Trade newman

          Wedge · 29/05/2017 at 20:12

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

Doggy · 29/05/2017 at 14:19

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.

    wombatsfc · 29/05/2017 at 21:14

    Mate don't do it, it's very difficult to catch up 400 points

kanetrain10 · 29/05/2017 at 14:27

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.


    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:22

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

      Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 20:23

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

        whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:27

        Otten with BE of 26?

        Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:38

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

wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 14:38

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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:45

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

      wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 15:13

      LOve it !

Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 14:44

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

Slop · 29/05/2017 at 14:45

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 14:57

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

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 15:01

    Too risky.

    SF4 · 29/05/2017 at 15:47

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

    jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 17:11

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

Luke · 29/05/2017 at 14:54

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 · 29/05/2017 at 14:59

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:05

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

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 14:59

    Trades look good, how many on field this week?

      Luke · 29/05/2017 at 15:04

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

        whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 15:19

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:24

    Need to cull PP and Otten ASAP.

      whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:50

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

        Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:52

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 21:17

          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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:07

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:10

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

      Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 21:26

      Do u have anyone that I could bring in?

        Mick · 29/05/2017 at 23:03

        Eddy > Greenwood, Fisher > S Selwood

        jez_m · 30/05/2017 at 10:29

        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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:12

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 15:27

    Probably when you don't need him

    BoiToi · 29/05/2017 at 15:45

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

    jace · 29/05/2017 at 15:46

    Monfries will come in before Eddy.

    SCB · 29/05/2017 at 16:10

    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 · 30/05/2017 at 09:12

    Needs Dixon to break a leg.

    joe · 30/05/2017 at 09:37

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:12

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 · 30/05/2017 at 10:29

    Wait until he's named on Thursday.

kanetrain10 · 29/05/2017 at 15:12

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:44

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

Swans2012 · 29/05/2017 at 15:12

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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:20

    That's a large intake of wood.

      Swans2012 · 29/05/2017 at 16:40

      Maximum relevant wood

INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 15:14

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.


    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 16:41

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:10

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

        LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 11:01

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

      Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:06

      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.

    Mick · 29/05/2017 at 21:55

    Going early on rookies is a sure fire way to sabotage your SuperCoach season. McInnes, O'Connor, Black, how much more evidence do you need??

      Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:07

      Depends on whether it ends up being right or wrong lol, can't tell until you do it.

    Top Gun · 29/05/2017 at 22:05

    Magic eight ball says yes

kanetrain10 · 29/05/2017 at 15:22

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

    hedski · 29/05/2017 at 19:31

    Thought it was starting with his 120 other week.

    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 12:33

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

Tommo09 · 29/05/2017 at 15:22

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)
Mid: Danger, T.Mitch, Bont, Fyfe, JPK, Selwood, Pendles, Selwood (Barrett, Myers, Fisher)
Ruc: Mummy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Heeney, Lynch, Nank, Steele, Hannan, Greenwood (Parsons, Eddy)

15 trades left, one more left for this week
158k left

Thanks community

    SF4 · 29/05/2017 at 15:43

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:08

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

        Tommo09 · 29/05/2017 at 20:44

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

James · 29/05/2017 at 15:33

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

    kanetrain10 · 29/05/2017 at 15:38

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:05

      Giv plowman a crack

      Top Gun · 29/05/2017 at 22:51


    jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 17:07

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:42

Considering the following this week.

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

    waynesworld · 29/05/2017 at 18:53

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

Harrison · 29/05/2017 at 15:45

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

    ToughBretts · 29/05/2017 at 15:59

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:18

    James Aish, Boy oh Boy Wowee.

Jack · 29/05/2017 at 15:48

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 18:38

    He's holidaying with Harley Balic

    Josh · 30/05/2017 at 09:59

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

TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 15:48

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 · 29/05/2017 at 15:53

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:07

      Like it

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 16:10

      Fair set of trades that lot!
      Welcome 100 plus points each week

        Derek · 29/05/2017 at 16:31

        I meant Barrett instead of Parsons. Parsons plays this week.

        Will get Docherty next week after his Bye.

          Derek · 29/05/2017 at 16:43

          you watch Preuss get named next week

BigBuggars · 29/05/2017 at 15:53

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

Richard · 29/05/2017 at 15:56

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'

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 16:00

    Highway to hell at the moment

    ToughBretts · 29/05/2017 at 16:01


    Top Gun · 29/05/2017 at 22:53

    Cues "Oh when the Saints……."

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 23:00

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

Holty · 29/05/2017 at 16:07

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 · 29/05/2017 at 16:23

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?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 16:37

    Do u care about byes?

      Top hawk · 29/05/2017 at 16:52

      Of course Trigger. Got the byes under control. Will field 18 this week albeit it being a bit tight. A number of round 13 bye players will be harvested in coming weeks. Eg Otten and Balic, as well as players after this weeks bye. Berry, Barrett and SPP. So I reckon I can pull off the Pendlebury coup this week. Worst case scenario, if I do end up with 1 or 2 donuts in round 13 then so be it. Round 12 will be no issue will field 19-20.

      Cheers mate.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 17:07

        Yeah same for me
        The reason I ask is all your ins r Rd 13.
        But as the only decent rooks have Rd 13 then I figure stuff it may as well bring forth sloane/pendles this week get the points over the next couple and chew a donut Rd 13.
        too far back to go for overall so cop it on the chin and move on
        also gives Barrett and Stewart/EVW a bit more moo time.

Tony · 29/05/2017 at 16:28

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

    nankthetank · 29/05/2017 at 17:25

    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

johnno · 29/05/2017 at 16:35

OUT: newman, barrett, balic
IN: docherty, s. selwood, greenwood

probably thinking what are you thinking with some of these moves, but doc is a must and i only have 2 spots left for a defender (doc, adams, laird, hibberd, tuohy …) last spot is going to be lloyd after his bye. I was thinking of bringing in williams this week, but that would leave me an extra defender because i feel doc/lloyd are a must.

barret had to go purely based on needing players on the field this week in particular.

this leaves me with outs each round of
R11: 10
R12: 8 – Rookies to move out Stewart
R 13: 11 – Rookies to move out: Taranto, potentially Myers and Pickett if need players available.

I prefer playing for overall rather than league, purely get more enjoyment out of it even though i won't win overall. Ranked 2500 overall

Thoughts on my moves?

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 16:42

    Docherty has a bye this week

    jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 17:06

    Why trade in Docherty this week when he has a bye?

      johnno · 29/05/2017 at 17:11

      i would be doing the same move next week regardless, so if anything am preparing for if i need to make any other trades..
      ie riewoldt injury

        Real talk · 29/05/2017 at 17:39


    Ben · 29/05/2017 at 17:45

    Newman and barrett still have money to make. Balic maybe he'll be back? Docherty has the bye. Since you still have pickett I would dump him for greenwood. If balic isn't named then balic to selwood.

Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 16:36

Time to pull the pin on Fyfe?

    jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 17:04

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

    wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 19:06

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

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 19:10

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

TigerNut · 29/05/2017 at 16:40

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

    Top hawk · 29/05/2017 at 16:55

    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.

      Tiger · 29/05/2017 at 17:05

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

      Tiger · 29/05/2017 at 17:07


    jez_m · 29/05/2017 at 17:05

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

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 17:20

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

      Etsy · 29/05/2017 at 22:13

    nankthetank · 29/05/2017 at 17:04
    Has the lot

Mark · 29/05/2017 at 16:57

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:02

    Yep he'll get the Scott Selwood tag this weekend

    INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 17:14

    Hard luck Mark. Could you bring in Docherty instead

      Mark · 29/05/2017 at 17:34

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

        INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 20:28

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

          Maestro · 29/05/2017 at 22:24

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

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:30

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

    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 12:32

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:00

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:03

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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:11

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

      nankthetank · 29/05/2017 at 17:22

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

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 17:24

      Who did he get elevated for?
      Any chance going back to rookie list?

        INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 17:39

        Ben Cousins who's on the long term jail list

          Austin · 29/05/2017 at 22:35

          Well if he's anything like Ben he'll be a real rip snorter!

        Juzzy · 29/05/2017 at 18:12

        That's a bloody good question Trigger.

        I think it must have been Ceglar who is out for the year with an ACL.
        Considering their injuries he could be given a fair run.

Jambak · 29/05/2017 at 17:38

Is it Newman's time to go?

    Real Talk · 29/05/2017 at 18:12

    Are you high?

      Jeremy · 29/05/2017 at 18:30

      BE is 80. Yes.

      Mich · 29/05/2017 at 19:41

      Also yes

    Keenbutclueless · 29/05/2017 at 18:41

    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

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 19:34

      I'm with u keen.

      Trade down to Lloyd rd 14.

      Ohhhh yeahhh

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 18:42

    I think so

TBone · 29/05/2017 at 17:46

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 · 29/05/2017 at 18:04

    Silly trades…all of them

      TBone · 29/05/2017 at 18:42

      how so Pops? what should I do differently?

    Keenbutclueless · 29/05/2017 at 19:15

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 17:59

Fyfe to Pendles to complete my mid?

    wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 19:12

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

Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 18:05

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

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


    wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 19:12

    POST is too long

      Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:23

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

        LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 10:54

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

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 19:37

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

    Swans2012 · 29/05/2017 at 20:25

    Works for me

    JohndJames · 29/05/2017 at 22:44

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 22:58

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

      LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 10:55

      who cares

Eve · 29/05/2017 at 18:07

Only 27k. 19 trades left. Need some calculated help. JJK out now, so trying to figure out how to structure an 18.
DEF: Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Marchbank, Newmann (Berry, Hibberd)
MED: Danger, Pendles, JJK, Fyfe, Merrett, Beams, Taranto, P-Pepper (Balic, Myers, Barrett)
RUC: Nank, Martin (Sandi)
FWD: JJK, Buddy, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Roughy, Parsons (Eddy, Strnadica)

    Cogla13 · 30/05/2017 at 12:59

    JJK is the first out. You need all three trades to hopefully avoid a donut. March and Newman are fat cows that can be culled. Balic and Eddy need to be moved on. Pick 2 of those 4 along with JJK.

Pops · 29/05/2017 at 18:09

Too soon for the fisher cull

    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 18:12

    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 · 29/05/2017 at 20:48

    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.

Boltons Blues · 29/05/2017 at 18:22

JJK, Fisher, Fox > Selwood, Greenwood, Higgins

Im going for cash league wins, 6W – 2L, need some PODs and i reckon Higgins is the man for me
Other 2 are pure cash gen

    Dean Billman · 29/05/2017 at 18:51

    Like it.

Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 18:59

Think I am going to cull Shaw…

Shaw out, Burton to swing into the backline, Greenwood Forward and then trade in S Selwood
Vicker Willis Out , swing Hibberd back, then trade in Cousins
Barrett Out, bring in a premo mid which will mean my team would look like this.

Laird, Adams, Hibberd
Roberton, Tuohy, Burton
(Stewart, Hibberd)

Pendlebury, Zorko, Oliver
Kennedy, Fyfe, Martin,
TBC, S.Selwood
(Fiser, Lloyd, Cousins)

Martin, Nankervis

Yeo, Dalhaus, Franklin
Greene, Steele, Greenwood
(Parsons, Eddy)

Would leave me with 11 trades left
100,000 + in the bank

Good idea? If so what MID should I bring in?

    Boltons Blues · 29/05/2017 at 19:26

    With only 14 trades left, id be holding Barret through his bye and the rest of the byes.
    297k with a BE of 11, still 50k-100k to make if he keeps getting 80s

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 19:38

      Its either him or fisher. If i get rid of barrett i will be nearly full premo mid with selwood. Who could make an easy 200k in coming weeks. Barrett is near his end especially since Rocky will be back soon… which will take away his time in the middle. Plus this year is go hard or go home, cant be taking time with trades…

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 19:51

    Giday Stanks, get Dangerfield in!…or you'll be behind the 8 Ball , chances are everyone you come up against, will have Danger scoring 150+

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:00

      Yeah fits my byes and you are right. I had 2222 on the weekend without him so with him could be huge. Barrett is done wont get much better and selwood has bigger ceiling if he can get his touches up and have more than 10 tackles

        Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:08

        If you're gonna contend for the whole thing or if you're just going for League wins, you need the Alpha Dog in your team mate….he's still cheap compared to his starting price.

          Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:13

          Not worried about contending haha ive only been playing for a 3 years. This year has been a bit more serious. and I have improved dramatically from averaging 1950 last year to 2150 this year. Just want to win the leagues and see how I go in rankings. But I agree, Danger is a must have no matter what you are playing for. So glad I didn't pay full price at the start of the year though.

            Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:19

            Good onya Stanks…I had him from the get go…cause you need the Alpha dog from the start……don't care about his price, you just work around it…and fit everyone else in around him, this bloke below me is a bit of a knob though…WTF is he on about?

              Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:33

              Yeah haha bit of a dick. Would like to see his team…

    Bad_News_Brown · 29/05/2017 at 20:11

    This team your posting is a bunch of beer bellied sharecroppers.

    You're team reminds me of Koko B. Ware – all show – no substance – negative result

      Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:22

      You're a bit of a Critic ain't ya?…why don't you post your Expert Team if you're so Fkn good?

        Bad_News_Brown · 29/05/2017 at 20:38

        Just stating the obvious. He has none of below
        Bont or ever Hanners

        and he's talking about getting Scott Selwood in?

        Seriously – shoot the parrot on your shoulder you don't need me to post my team to understand this is rubble

          Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:42

          Haha mate i am trading Danger in! And selwood will me by MID 7.

    Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 20:15

    Try hold off on Shaw until Round 13

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:34

      Na getting rid of him now. Makes my team better and helps me have 18 for all 3 bye rounds trust me i was telling people to hold a few weeks back. But now time to get rid of him…

        Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 21:06

        Shaw to lloyd before round 13 sounds juicy to me, so I will wait.

          Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 21:12

          Go for it mate. No wrong or right answer. I get Danger and you get Lloyd. I need danger haha since nearly 65 percent of people have him

            Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 21:17

            Yeah good point I didn't read it all get Danger in buddy, sounds good to me

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:35

    Vickers Willis playing this week and BE of only 26, don't like the trade.

    Barret BE of 11 and scoring well not a fan of that one either really.

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:43

      Keep VW and cull Stewart then?? Im getting rid of one either way.

        whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 21:18

        Seems you're in a tough situation to field 18 and are forced to do early trades.

          Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 21:22

          Trust me was in a worse place before. Im not worried about going early on trades if i get danger in.

Rivo · 29/05/2017 at 19:03

With 16 trades and $10k, it's not an ideal week to trade. If Sandi plays, I'm likely to field 16 this week.

However with Sandi 50/50, carrying Pickett as DPP swing in the midfield, Fisher not making much and Marchbank peaking, it's a tough call. I have both Greenwood and Bolton, so what other options are there???

    Rivo · 29/05/2017 at 21:41

    Marchbank & Fisher to Scharenberg & S.Selwood?

Cold_Case · 29/05/2017 at 19:04

Scott Selwood is a must have for me. He ticks all the right boxes.
1. Injury Prone
2. Midprice
3. Played bugger all games recently
I have already bought in and traded out O'Meara and Swallow, just need Selwood to complete the set.

    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 19:12

    Trust me Selwood will do a lot better than Omeara and Swallow. He hasnt even hit his high yet…

    wightyswarriors · 29/05/2017 at 19:14

    COUld only be a short term cash cow in the absence of anyone other than greenwood

Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 19:05

High Greenwood -107 BE
I want that juicy juicy cahs

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 19:18

    You high are ya? I want Mr high as well and his cahs. Hehe. Just kidding.

    Coaches who do not grab Greenwood this week are calahs!! (Galahs)

      Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 21:40

      I want the cahs too…just not the dyslexia 🙂

        Pitch 72 · 29/05/2017 at 21:50

        The cahs,,,

Matt · 29/05/2017 at 19:10

Going for cash league wins rather than overall, 15 trades, 44k cash

Laird, Simmo, JJ, Shaw, Marchbank, Newman (Williamson, Hibberd)
Danger, Titch, Dusty, Treloar, Bont, Hanners, Fyfe, SPP (Barrett, Myers, Lloyd)
Grundy, Sandilands (Strnadica)
Dahlhaus, Macrae, Lynch (GC), Higgins, Nank, Hardwick (Parsons, Eddy)

Greenwood is a must for me and potentially Scott Selwood but who do I boot? Cheers

    Ben · 29/05/2017 at 19:33

    SPP and Eddy I guess. Pity you can't do those trades with Marchbank

Benny · 29/05/2017 at 19:16

Pendles and Greenwood or Scooter Selwood and Macrae? (covered for byes)

    Ja191 · 29/05/2017 at 19:54

    option 1 Macrae will be cheaper in the next few, pendles is back to his usual greatness and won't be cheaper imo

Murray · 29/05/2017 at 19:32

Going for 3 trades this week
Fyfe to wines
Pickett to greenwood
Fisher to s Selwood.

What does the community think?

    Pops · 29/05/2017 at 19:37


    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 19:47

    Do not ditch Fyfe for Wines……

      Murray · 29/05/2017 at 19:54

      Why is this,
      Fyfe is not going well, is going to drop a bit of cash, either playing injured or has trade concerns whilst wines has had bye, is the only player currently averaging 103 around his price of 469k and is a contested beast, with 100 games under his belt. He is about to hit his straps.

        Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 19:57

        Because Fyfe started the year well! And is proven. And in the last 3 weeks he hasnt played that bad… he was and should have been over 100 in 2 of the 3 games and on the weekend had a lot of turnovers and frees against because of the weather and fremantle were shit! If it wasnt for that he would have been around 100 again.

          Murray · 29/05/2017 at 20:01

          Granted, 3 games of 98,99,98 and a bad one on w/e. Maybe you are correct, can allow 1 bad one

            Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:19

            Exactly. and before that he had 5 out of 6 games over 100. Get other stuff in your team done first and if in a few weeks he hasn't picked up again then he will have to go. If you have Shaw I suggest ditching him as he has had his chances and hasn't improved at all.

              Murray · 29/05/2017 at 20:22

              Stanks, No, don't have him thank goodness, but if there was someone else who I would trade instead of Fyfe, it would be newman and get a premo def

                Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:31

                Do that then. Newman will still have good games but if upgrading him gets you a consistant def premo and gets your team closer to full premo then go for it

          Murray · 29/05/2017 at 20:18

          Stands, if not wines, which mid fielder or fwd around 500k would you go fo

            Wedge · 29/05/2017 at 20:30

            Heppell, beams, priddis all about 500,000

              Murray · 29/05/2017 at 20:38

              Wedge would consider Heppell, already traded beams and priddis be 145 and will drop more coin, can wait an extra week or after bye

            whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:38

            If you have to settle for a 500K player at this point of the season you're not doing it right.

              Murray · 29/05/2017 at 20:40

              True, would better going to premo def

Harry · 29/05/2017 at 19:51

Is Mitch Wallis a good trade in option next week?

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:13

    Who would you trade out, what is your Forward line? How much money do you have?

      Harry · 29/05/2017 at 20:27

      Would be trading Butler, was thinking Wallis or Macrae?

        Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:33

        Go for MaCrae before Wallis mate. He's a bit more expensive, but much more reliable.

          Harry · 29/05/2017 at 20:38

          OK Cheers Rusty

    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:20

    If he fits your team and byes then yes. But depends on your team

    Ted · 29/05/2017 at 20:59

    Has never averaged over 100 in his career so I doubt this will be the year he does coming back from a badly broken leg. If anything he could be managed so don't be surprised if he misses games along the way.

IntheNickofTime · 29/05/2017 at 19:59

I wonder if it's best to get rid of dead weight and aiding cash generation by jumping on Cousins and 'Berg early?

OUT – Berry, Fisher and Eddy. IN – Cousins, Bolton and 'Berg. Too risky? Is it worth it? I'll field 18 with those trades as opposed to 15. (Getting rid of Newman next round). I keep holding out thinking that he may come back and that his BE is way too low to miss out on. Same thinking with Sandi. Another option is to get rid of Newman, Balic and Eddy, in for Cousins,'Berg and Bolton which leaves me with 419,600 to play with in the coming weeks.

I'll post the team below if anyone has any suggestions of great priorities.

Doch, Laird, Roberton
Simpson, Lloyd, Newman Berry, Stewart

Danger Titch
Kennedy, Fyfe, Priddis
Treloar, SPP, Barrett (Fisher, Myers and Balic)

Nank, Sandi, Grundy

Yeo, Dahl, Buddy
Taranto, Heeney, Greenwood (Eddy, Srtndica)

Thanks in advance!

    Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 20:12

    Be very careful with round 13. Both berg and Cousins have that bye

    redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 20:33

    What if Scott Selwood is to tag Sloane this week? Would you still bring him in? Just a thought Geelong play Adelaide and Geelong's best tagger is Selwood.

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:47

      Well that may mean he will actually get the ball more and his tackles will stay at the high number they are. He was getting 30 plus touches in the VFL so he should get better tbh

        redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 20:50

        Well sounds like you've made up your mind 🙂

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:42

    PP looked shit every week.

Ja191 · 29/05/2017 at 20:08

Thinking Florent, Balic (if not named), Berry OUT Greenwood, Bolton (if named), Jelwood IN

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:12

    Yeah that'll work, Florent and Bolton are maybes though this week. Any player with some kind of emotional problems…(Balic) I reckon, get rid of em.

Tommo · 29/05/2017 at 20:10

Depending on how many weeks JJK misses would it be too early to get in Tom Lynch from GCS?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:40

    High BE but he will play all three bye rounds and is a keeper, He's already cheap and when he scores well again will go up past what you are paying for him anyway I reckon.

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 20:42

    JJK will miss plenty. I reckon he is out for the season. And I have him by the way………

    Tom Lynch is really interesting.

    Had his bye, great kick, great mark, and the Eagles next week at home. BUT he plays in a sheizenhauzen team.

    Might not see enough of the pill to produce his best work.

      whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:46

      Only 3 weeks with a calf strain for JJK.

        Tommo · 30/05/2017 at 09:24

        Could be more, after all he did hear a pop…

TigerNut · 29/05/2017 at 20:16

Kennedy for Dahlhaus? Thoughts? Already have Yeo, Macrae, Nank, Steele. Other options are Greene, Heeney, Wallis, Cameron or Franklin

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:23

    Yeah Dahlhaus…safe bet…should've had him from the start, but this is your opportunity. 🙂

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 20:33

    Not this week. Neither are playing.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 21:26

    After the bye, haha

INPieman · 29/05/2017 at 20:32

Why does everyone want to get rid of Fyfe. It's a contract year for him. He could absolutely burn the crap out of you for doing that

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 20:37

    You're right Pieman, he needs to be held just because we all know what he's capable of…regardless of how shite he's going lately.

    There are too many other issues to be dealt with.

      INPieman · 30/05/2017 at 10:08

      There are far too many other issues to be considering parting ways with rolled gold

    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 20:45

    Totally agree. Im getting rid of Shaw instead to get Danger

      Cogla13 · 30/05/2017 at 12:28

      Shaw is going to get me Doc.

    The Ranger · 29/05/2017 at 20:51

    It's a luxury trade so those that are trading him must be feeling pretty luxurious

    Robbo · 29/05/2017 at 20:52

    If he can't produce the goods in the next fortnight he'll be an easy trade out for mine when he has his bye. The clock is ticking…

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 20:54

    Agreed 100% INPieman.

    Fyfe will have to start producing SOON if he wants his wish…………..A big contract with St Kilda or other keen AFL club bidders.

    He is a must HOLD for the rest of the season. (Unless serious injury)

    Will Fyfe come back to life? Of course he will.

    Its just a game of Hawks and Saints!


    Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:20

    Well this year we have learned our lesson on returning premiums from injury. Roughy, Fyfe, Watson jeez

      Justin · 29/05/2017 at 21:58

      Beams, JOM, Swallow, R.Murphy, Ablett, Rocky

        Daniel Z · 29/05/2017 at 23:29

        Beams is averaging 104 and was 430k to start (gone up around 70k).
        Don't think he belongs on your list.

    wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 00:41

    Maybe he's coming back from a serious injury and he has a few subconscious memories that prevent him performing at previous levels. Perhaps almost 50% of the season is enough time to evaluate his recovery and immediate potential.
    I still have him but if he doesn't go 120+against the pies he's gone. Ranked 31st amongst those who've played every game and 26th for his position with an average 12 points less than 10th rank. He's M9 at best for the rest of this year

      Swans2012 · 30/05/2017 at 10:18

      Exactly wombat, he's a cheap high ceilinged m9, why get rid of him? I'm planning to have him at m8/9 loophole with beams by the end of the byes (or just after cash pending)

Rocksta · 29/05/2017 at 20:40

Will Tim Mohr keep getting games?

I'm getting desperate and need a defensive downgrade to be able to bring Jelwood in.
Either that or pray to the gods for Luke Ryan to get a guernsey this week.

    Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:18

    You may have to do a downgrade to someone who won't generate much cash but doesn't cost much. Otherwise Mojr, Sharenberg will soon be on the bubble and Perryman is on the bubble this week

Simmo · 29/05/2017 at 20:42

Should we still be doing downgrades to playing rookies or should we hold and downgrade our rookies to nonplaying rookies after byes?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:59

    We should be doing what is right in our own situation.

      Just Sayin · 29/05/2017 at 21:25

Dusty or J Selwood?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:58

    Flip a coin.

    Defying_Madness · 29/05/2017 at 21:04

    Selwood much more consistent

    iLoveNMFC · 30/05/2017 at 11:48

    Flip 26 coins and average it out.

Team Flog · 29/05/2017 at 20:51

I have a good discussion topic. Those holding Barrett on the bench. Has his bye (RD11) this week. Whereas James Cousins $102k Mid (67 in his first game) has his bye RD13. Will be on the bubble on the same week that Barrett would be back from his bye. Calls the question….should we cull Barrett now as most will consider doing the same trade next week when Cousins is on the bubble. I am leaning towards culling Barrett this week. Thoughts community?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:58

    Depends if you are desperate to get 18 on the field this week.

    Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:15

    Risky. Barrett won't lose anything this week and we don't know that Cousins will play this week let alone next

      Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 21:28

      Clarko loves Cousins so he will play

Thomas · 29/05/2017 at 20:52

Hey guys, in a bit of trouble this week.
I've already gone Hampton – Scharenberg, but unsure on other trades. I need to use 3 this week to get 18 on field. Should I:
Option 1: Fisher and Parfitt down to Bolton and another rookie, (already have Greenwood) leaves me with 623k before i bring in rookie)
Option 2: Fisher and parfitt to Bolton and Selwood (leaves me with 341k)
Option 3: Fisher and Parfitt to Bolton and Priddis (leaves me with 117k)
Option 4: Parfitt and Fisher to Bolton and Selwood (leaves me with 75k)
Which option is best community?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 20:55

    Option 2 for sure as it's identical to option 4 yet it nets you an extra 270ish grand.

      Thomas · 29/05/2017 at 20:59

      Ahahaha sorry should have elaborated, option 2 is Scott Selwood and option 4 is Joel

      TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 21:09

      In option 2 he implies Scott Selwood.

      In option 4 he implies Joel Selwood.

      U been smoking whatyasmokin?

        Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:13

        What ya smoking, whatyasmoking?

        whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 21:20


          TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 21:34

          Both the same identity community.

            LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 10:50

            lol who cares dude.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 21:01

    Wait on teams
    Bolton could be dropped

      Thomas · 29/05/2017 at 21:06

      Yeah true mate, but if Bolton is named, which would you pick?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 21:14

        1. What rookie? What would u do with extra cash?
        2. Scooter will make good money but do u see him as a keeper? If not will need to use another trade to bring in a keeper.
        3. Pridda not getting as many points now smitch plays 4 eagles
        4. Jelwood best finisher in game. Wills his team over the line. So 4 out of those choices.

          Thomas · 29/05/2017 at 21:24

          Cheers for the response mate. Yeah as for rookies, not looking great, Theres Cousins but only played the 1 game. As for the cash, would probably bring in a def premo for Newman, and bring in a forward premo for Parsons.
          Definitely don't see Scooter as a premo, only have 16 trades left before this round, but still have 4-5 more upgrades left. Would that be enough to warrant bringing Scooter in?
          4 is probably my most preferred pick, but only having 75k isn't ideal.
          Sorry for the barrage of writing mate.

      TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 21:15

      That is what I am doing Trigger.

      Just chilling out and waiting for team announcements. No point phantom trading until we have official team announcement clarity.

      Pendles is bigly on my radar!

      Cheers Trig

    LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 10:50

    don't go near priddis. wouldn't say hes even in the top 20 mids

Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 21:02

Okay so team after trades.

Laird, Adams, Roberton
Hibberd, Tuohy, Burton
(Stewart, Hibberd)

Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Martin
Zorko, Kennedy, Oliver
Fyfe, S.Selwood
(Fisher, Cousins, Lloyd)

Martin, Nankervis

Yeo, Greene, Dalhaus
Franklin, Steele, Greenwood
(Parsons, Eddy)

18 atleast for each bye round 🙂

Goodluck in the byes everyone!

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 21:20

    Strong side Stanks, I wouldn't like to be going against you.

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 21:23

    Do you have a FWD/RUC swing?

      Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 21:48

      I don't have a swing Derek, but I'm not worried about it, I have Goldy, and Witts with Nank in the forwards…still going ok.

        Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 22:24

        Yeah i dont have one either

          Derek · 29/05/2017 at 23:25

          Fair enough.

          Having Ryder or Nank as a swing, not only gives you injury cover it also gives you loophole cover for your rucks.

          Nank has 5 of his last 7 games on a Sunday.

          You could have a Witts at R2 on bench with E, if he goes poor you have Nank to cover, if Witts does ok Nank can stay in forward line and let's you loop someone on forward line.

          Gotta look at those options in the run home

            Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 23:44

            Good point Derek, cheers for that, makes sense, might have to trade out Solvol for Sthrryjtvyj or Cameron at some point.

Jono · 29/05/2017 at 21:03

Out: Balic, Eddy, Pickett
In: Greenwood, Bolton, Sharenberg
Leaves 18 players this week and $254k for upgrades next week. Missing any other downgrades? Don't rate any port gc premos to bring in.

    Tyruddanaut · 29/05/2017 at 21:14

    You may want to wait until teams are named. None of these are guaranteed another game

Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 21:19

Trading out JJK and Eddy or Fisher this week and getting in Greenwood
which leaves me with about 567k so which premo to bring in? I'm a bit stuck so any suggestions would be appreciated

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 21:20

    Ryder has had his bye. What do you think of him?

      Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 21:44

      Had him from day 1 but I reckon he's a good option for people that don't have him

        Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 21:58

        You after a Forward or a Mid Sellars?

          Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 22:36

          Mm well thinking of sticking Greenwood in the FWD and maybe getting another Premo Mid like Adams but if I do it other way around and put him MID I could maybe pick up Heeny or Macrae ECT.

            Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:42

            Adams and MaCrae sounds good, with a view to getting Adams down back and Macrae Fwd, so you can further upgrade to A-1 mids in the future..taking advantage of Adams and MacRae's dpp scores.

              Sellars1226 · 29/05/2017 at 22:50

              Wait so just making sure we are on the same page, I cant get both Adams and Macrae I was just saying if I put Greenwood in the FWD I could get Adams but it i put Greenwood in the MID I could get Macrae- that's what I meant

                Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 23:03

                Ah ok sorry, in that case I'd make Adams a priority over Macrae…Adams has been rock solid.

BlueNath · 29/05/2017 at 21:24

I still have Hampton. Has anyone heard if he is a chance to return this week? If not, Perryman is getting a call up

    redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 21:27

    Trade him This is from the AFL site

      BlueNath · 29/05/2017 at 21:32

      Thanks! Then he has to go. I still actually have 18 players before trading this week. I'm just not sure about Perrymsn do I may park Hampton and upgrade him next week to a premo

        redgumwon · 29/05/2017 at 21:34

        If you've got 18 and if you don't need to trade holding a week won't hurt you and got to a premo next week

    Arnie · 29/05/2017 at 22:00

    He's cooked bro!

Team Flog · 29/05/2017 at 21:30

Considering Cousins and Adams….talk about Adams Family haha. cousin It and the Adams family

Emmanuel · 29/05/2017 at 21:47

Hey guys,

Have a lot of rookies with some cash still to be made. However there are too many options for cash generation. Is it worth holding onto players who will make 5k-10k or moving them to someone who will earn 30k-40k?

I have players like:

I only have 15 on the field this week so if I want the 18 I need to move someone.


    TRIGGER HAPPY · 29/05/2017 at 21:53

    WHE. Maxed out
    Trade in greenwood same bye may score around the same.
    Makeover $200k.

      Emmanuel · 29/05/2017 at 22:01

      Want Greenwood but trading him for WHE doesn't give me an extra player on the park this week 🙁

      Was thinking Fisher, Newman and Barrett out.

      Would like to hold Barrett and Newman though…

    Jake the Snake · 29/05/2017 at 22:01

    Eddy and Parsons would be the first two I'd move on.

      Emmanuel · 29/05/2017 at 22:11

      Do you think its worth taking them out now with such little cash generation?

      Doesn't leave much for upgrading.

      Such a horrible rookie cash generation year!

        Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:20

        I'm doing the same this week Emmanuel, culling all the scummy remoras off my bench for cash makers, who help me get players onfield this week.

        Greenwood will make 90k on his 3rd week.

        Northerner · 30/05/2017 at 05:35

        I'm not sure cash generation has been that bad. I'm on $12.9m team value with 18 trades left, all rookies playing and can field 18 each week over byes. I looked back over history and it's similar team value at Rd 10 to prior years. I think it's been harder this year to make cash but it's still been there. I missed Otten in that as well which was my one that got away. I made an incorrect call he was a utility that did not have JS when Lever and others came back and got that way wrong.

        I think the key has been to lop the non playing rookies early and have patience with the warm bodies. I have kept Taranto as an example when others moved him on early.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:08

    Agree with Jake…Eddy first, the dude is dead in the water.

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 23:15

    Sharpen the knives. If they play this week they stay, otherwise off with their 'eads

    Cogla13 · 30/05/2017 at 11:55

    I'd trade Newman, Fisher and Eddy. Eddy doesn't get you any dollars but he's is holding back your cash generation and you should try to avoid dead bodies through the byes.

TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 22:01

"Tyruddanaut and Whatyasmokin" are on the same team.

Tyru posts supposed 'official" stuff, and "Smoke" in the meantime undermines other coaches. (Eg posting and copying names of well known coaches to 'pretend" to be those coaches)

Poor form.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:34

    So it wasn't you that called me a flog and said that you're "Top dog in this forum"?, I didn't think it was you.

    Maestro · 29/05/2017 at 22:43

    Just read your article on the Footywire site Hawk. "Top Hawk Backs Rule". Nice

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 22:51

    I don't copy the names of anybody on here bud.

    Get your facts right before you make foolish accusations. Don't know what I have to do with Tyruddant either.

      Hoot · 29/05/2017 at 23:03

      Anyone swing a handbag yet?

    Tyruddanaut · 30/05/2017 at 06:46

    "Official" stuff? I don't have anything to do with this website and only stay for a bit of fun.

    Tyruddanaut · 30/05/2017 at 07:50

    What makes you think we are on the same team anyway?

    LoganJosh7 · 30/05/2017 at 10:45

    Pretty sure iv been shredded by all 3 of you

    illuminati confirmed?

TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 22:07

Just to make sure, "Tyruddanaut and Whatyasmokin" need no longer "engage" in any of my posts moving forward within this forum.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:11

    Why's that Hawk?….what's the goss?

      whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 22:55

      He's concocted some theory that me and Tryuddanaut are on the same team and are trying to bring down the forums or something. Flogometer has basically blown up it's gone past max.

      From this day forth I dub thee Floghawk.

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 22:51


Liam · 29/05/2017 at 22:08

Will Scott Selwood keep up his current scoring output or will he drop off.

Just wondering if I should get Selwood or Dusty this week. (Selwood would be M8 until he reaches 400-450k and i off load him to another premo)

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:10

    The answer is…maybe, and hopefully, he's probably thinking pretty heavily about being able to feed his family from here on in, now he's finally healthy again…so he'll be doing his best, and gets to play footy with his bro…happy days!

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/05/2017 at 22:16

    Scott Selwood is a very valid option at $280K. A proven performer at West Coast, but some risk with his body.

    His bye timing not ideal either. Still, with that extra rest in two weeks, he may prove to be very very handy.

    Stanks21 · 29/05/2017 at 22:21

    Get him in. Will score decent most weeks and make cash

Blaknight · 29/05/2017 at 22:15

Considering the following this week.

OUT – Newman – IN – McInnes (if selected)
OUT – Taranto – IN – Sloane
OUT – Hardwick – IN – SSelwood (Balic swinging to FWD)

Leaves me 19 playing (w/Sandi playing), 8 Premo mids and 9k extra in the bank. All 3 outs yes are still generating cash and ok scores but im feeling the cash made from McInnes and SSelwood out weighs the score loss, but i think it will even out anyways with Sloane and SSelwwod.

Sets me up really well for Rnd 12 and 13 byes. Will almost be full premo round 14. Id have 12 trades remaining.

My MIDS would be – Danger, Pendles, Bonts, Jelwood, Rocky, Fyfe, Treloar, Sloane


    Northerner · 30/05/2017 at 06:52

    I would not pick McInnes. He will probably play next 2 or 3 matches, but Kennedy is only out for 2 or 3 and Lycett due back then as well.

    If you need cash from Newman go Junker from North. $102k rookie def/mid DPP and will give you a loophole for rest of season.

      Northerner · 30/05/2017 at 06:54

      Or take Sharenberg early is your other option.

        Blaknight · 30/05/2017 at 09:17

        Thanks for that. I was thinking Sharenberg if McInnes wasn't selected. Go no issues with going early on players. It's paid off a few times this year for me.

        You think Junker will get a game? Cash gen is good..

          DacZawson · 30/05/2017 at 09:22

          Junker will most certainly not get a game. He's only there for loophole and swing options.

    joe · 30/05/2017 at 09:36

    Couldn't you just turn Balic into McInnes in your forward line and hold Newman?

      Blaknight · 30/05/2017 at 09:58

      Not enough cash to do that unfortunately

Nate · 29/05/2017 at 22:19

Firstly anyone know the injury news on Sandi? Need him back in this weekend of fielding 18 is gonna get really tough. Also can to any two fwd players (one this week, one upgrade next week). Already have Dahl, Marae, Petracca, Nank. Any suggestions taking byes into consideration?

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 22:28

    Sandi is listed as a 'Test' on the herald Sun Barometer, and they're "hoping he's ok"…Maybe just wait till teams are announced on Wednesday before you make your decisions.

      Nate · 29/05/2017 at 22:37

      cheers Russty. will definitely be doing so, praying for Sandi though!!

        Jose · 29/05/2017 at 23:21

        After the flogging Freo got on the weekend you'd think Lyons would want him back ASAP

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 23:10

    Have a think about Ryder. Had his bye

    wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 00:44

    Franklin, Steele Greene

Rocksta · 29/05/2017 at 22:34

Is Tim Mohr in GWS' best 22?
If not, whom did he replace last weekend?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 23:01

    Nah he's not, only got a couple of games too. Check the AFL website for ins and outs last week to see who he replaced. Might hold a spot for a while with all their injuries but too risky.

      Rocksta · 29/05/2017 at 23:08


Jambak · 29/05/2017 at 22:41

Who is most likely to finish top 6 defender? Rance, hibberd, Roberton?

    whatyasmokin · 29/05/2017 at 23:00

    Hibberd is looking really good.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 23:04

    Hold on…just rubbing my Crystal Balls….Rance!

    Derek · 29/05/2017 at 23:09


    wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 00:50

    I'd steer clear of Rance. Shut down him and Dusty and the tiges would struggle to beat Nth Blackburn by 100+, coaches would have noticed this and will be planning to achieve it. He's a bit like Josh Gibson from a few years back more yoyo than yeo

      Mich · 30/05/2017 at 08:25

      I doubt anyone will tag rance

      DacZawson · 30/05/2017 at 09:15

      I'd be tagging Cotch and Dusty before anyone else, plus I'm not sure of a forward that could tag Rance, you'd need someone like a Mitch McGovern body type I reckon

wombatsfc · 29/05/2017 at 23:06

No advice here just a bit of bragging.
This week after 3 trades I'll have 18 on field being 13 premos +Otten,Stewart,Scooter,WHE,Greenwood +200k in bank, tipped for 1923. I hope everybody that's planning to tank this round is ranked above me.
Round 12 I'll have 16 premo +WHE,Marchbank,Greenwood,Barrett,Berry, –
Round 13 18-Premo +scooter,Marchbank,Berry,Cousins and 6 premos on Pine with bye. I'm Counting Roberton, Harbrow, Hibberd, Steele, Nank, Witts as premo in their positions.
From round 14 onwards I'll have 4 trades left and a premo on the bench in mids and fwd + both a def/mid and fwd/mid swing open to me to take full advantage of loopholes for buddy harbrow and Hibberd.
I'm only about 600 off the pace atmo so if I'm lucky I should be at the pointy end in september

    Russty_ · 29/05/2017 at 23:19

    4 trades left after round 14?…so 5 rounds and then 3 to 4 rounds of Finals…don't like your chances mate, there are always injuries and other types of carnage near the end of the SC season. Good luck though 🙂

      wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 00:26

      4 trades PLUS – 2 Premos on the pine plus Marchbank,Berry,Greenwood and a couple of yet to emerge rooks Rusty. I'd have to suffer more than 3 premo season ending injuries to be stuffed but, I appreciate your pessimism

    The Ranger · 29/05/2017 at 23:32

    Nice work Wombats, good luck mate.

      wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 00:28

      Thanks Ranger, it's pure luck mate nobody can predict form and injuries

        Rick Grimes · 30/05/2017 at 04:41

        Who you rating a premo. List team.

          wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 11:53

          I detect an element of doubt in your demands but I'm a courteous bloke so I'll show.
          Current Premos
          TAdams,Laird,Harbrow (trade in Doch and Hibberd next week
          Nank, Witts

          As mentioned previously I consider Nank,Witts,Steele,and harbrow to be premiums in the named positions

    Moustachio · 30/05/2017 at 10:11

    Jesus mate what happened to all your trades… You're cooked.

      wombatsfc · 30/05/2017 at 12:01

      Not Cooked I've only just started to defrost mate.
      Atmo I still have 12 but will only have 4 after the byes. 4 will be more than enough when I'll have two premos and 3 best 22 players on the bench. Apart from fyffe I don't have any injury magnets like Goldstien,Mummy, JJK,Rocky et al
      After byes I'd need 6 of my prems to suffer season ending injuries before my team wasn't full premo anymore and I ran out of trades

        Pie Watcher · 30/05/2017 at 14:59

        Keep going hard wombat. Love the all out attack. Don't go quietly. Great stuff

    BJ Collins · 30/05/2017 at 10:19

    Sorry pal I don't mean to burst your bubble but the projections mean jack sh1t!

JEL · 29/05/2017 at 23:39

WTF is happening with the Forwards this year??
Only 2 are averaging more than 100 so far.
Is it worth investing in the likes of Yeo, is the price worth it?

Am I better of looking at Steele or Daniher, even though I've missed their price rise??

So many questions, so few answers!!!

NickMacMan · 29/05/2017 at 23:48

Parsons or Fisher to Greenwood??


    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 12:29

    Parsons, JS is a lot lower

NutSack · 30/05/2017 at 01:30

A barge was seen going down the river and the 'goods' on board was believed to be Sandi's leg. It was then off loaded onto a 40ft tray and believed to be headed to a 'clinic' so hopefully he will come up goods and play.

Alby · 30/05/2017 at 05:04

Would love to cull Eddy and Parsons but with so little cash generation their is not much on the horizon to replace them, any ideas.

Northerner · 30/05/2017 at 05:49

If Sandi plays I have 19 this weekend. I need to get Greenwood, but all my rookies are not quite ripe or have good bye rounds.

Stewart (Ess)

SPP is most ripe
Barrett has this week's bye so could go and give me 20 on field.
Parsons not much more to give but Rd 12 bye is good.
Stewart and Myers both Rd 13 byes – same as Greenwood.

    Derek · 30/05/2017 at 07:46

    Looks like Barrett gets the chop. You need to start cashing them in

Tommo09 · 30/05/2017 at 07:43

If Eddy is not named is it worth trading him to Bolton to field 18 players this week?
It will leave me with 14 trades

    INPieman · 30/05/2017 at 07:52

    Eddy is a pain. But with Butler in the background I'm concerned about Bolton's JS. I'm not sure it's worth it for no real cash benefit

    Stevo · 30/05/2017 at 10:21

    Not sure Bolton is worth it myself but if Eddy doesn't get named this week he becomes Greenwood for me.

Ja191 · 30/05/2017 at 07:48

Best forward to get?

    DacZawson · 30/05/2017 at 09:18

    Majority of the best forwards have the Round 11 bye so if you can hold off a week and then grab Dahlhaus, Macrae etc. but if you gotta trade this week I'd personally go for Toby Greene

Tyruddanaut · 30/05/2017 at 07:48

Watch out people, FLOGHAWK1 is promoting communist propaganda and nazism

ITCANTBT · 30/05/2017 at 08:22

SPP-Scott selwood
Good trades?

    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 09:04

    Good trades other than SPP to Selwood, go to a rookie instead unless you see him as a M9

      ITCANTBT · 30/05/2017 at 11:54


Will · 30/05/2017 at 08:31

Do we get 3 trades next week?

    Harper · 30/05/2017 at 10:22

    Yes mate. 3 trades per week over the next 3 weeks.

      Will · 30/05/2017 at 10:33

      Thanks Harper

Creek465 · 30/05/2017 at 08:52

Is ebert going ti keep his scoring up all year? Thinking of bringing him in

    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 09:02

    Usually a fast starter, would rather go Wines/Gray if you were after a Port mid

Sellars1226 · 30/05/2017 at 09:01

I'm a bit stuck this week, so I want to trade out SPP, Fisher, JJK. IN – Greenwood, S Selwood, ( Macrae, Sloane, Merret or any other suggestions for a premo ) I was thinking Sloane but I'm just gonna wait for who you guys think I should put in.

Will · 30/05/2017 at 09:24

Toby Greene a good pick?

    Tommo · 30/05/2017 at 09:29

    Good pick as long as you dont have a no flogs policy 😉

      Will · 30/05/2017 at 09:32

      Yeah i know, thats the reason i'm not sure whether to buy him! ahaha

        Tommo · 30/05/2017 at 09:41

        Aha true. I'd get him myself if i didnt hate him so much, he's fairly consistant but I'd be worried about him being prone to some temper tantrums

          Will · 30/05/2017 at 09:52

          Him or Macrae (after bye)

            Tommo · 30/05/2017 at 10:50

            Macrae hands down

    ProTravo · 30/05/2017 at 10:02

    I think he is a great pick, flogs are more than welcome if they can put up some great scores.

    Danners · 30/05/2017 at 12:30

    A handy pick, proven premo

Hoot · 30/05/2017 at 09:29

JJK's injury seems to be Soleus not the major tendon (Ach). This is better than Gastroc ppl! 🙂

Ill be holding.

    Jase · 30/05/2017 at 10:26

    3+ weeks out so if you are playing for rank then he really needs to go as you can't carry a premo for that long over all the byes and remain competitive. Otherwise you just become another statistic being "that guy" whose ranking tumbles over the byes whilst a bunch of other coaches soar up the rankings.

Tommo · 30/05/2017 at 09:31

Thoughts on going Fisher -> Sloane and JJK -> Hugh Greenwood now that JJK is out for 3+ weeks?

Jack · 30/05/2017 at 09:57

Relton Roberts good bench cover??

    ProTravo · 30/05/2017 at 09:59

    Perfect bench cover.

PDAP · 30/05/2017 at 09:57

I have an abundance of round 12 players but need a premonition mid for this week and can't decide between Joel Selwood and Dusty Martin. Both have similar price tags, averages ans BE's. Thinking the former. Thoughts anyone.

    SCdonkey · 30/05/2017 at 10:27

    I already have Dusty. If i was picking this week out of Jelwood and Dusty, would have to be Dusty he has a statement to make to The Blue and White that he's worth as much cash North can offer.

Jack · 30/05/2017 at 09:59

Relton Roberts good bench cover??

Rick Grimes · 30/05/2017 at 10:04

Greene or Yeo this week?

Resisting Selwood. If was earlier in the season I'd get him. But at this stage I'm only interested in premiums. Besides could probably make as much cash out of Cousins assuming he holds his position for another 4-5 games.

    SCdonkey · 30/05/2017 at 10:07

    Yeo for mine. But if you're after a POD, I would get Greene.

      Swans2012 · 30/05/2017 at 10:22

      Greene for the pod factor, I was keen on both sellwoods this week but think I'll just take Joel, I've already got one midpriced injury riddled trap in my team (swallow), so figure I might as well keep him for a few more weeks than trade him to Scott for a miserable 50k. Plus swallow doesn't rely on an unsustainable 17 tackles to hit a ton.

        Stanks21 · 30/05/2017 at 12:28

        Selwood hasnt even hit his stride yet. He was getting 30 plus touches a game and an easy 10 tackles in the VFL.

          Swans2012 · 30/05/2017 at 14:34

          Big difference between running free in the Vfl and tagging duties in the AFL. Not saying he's a bad pick but gotta remember he hasn't been able to hit his stride for a few years now.

          This said I'd be on him if I didn't already (still) have swallow, he would just be a pointless downgrade from swallow for me at the moment.

SCdonkey · 30/05/2017 at 10:05

As predicted Selwood is likely to line up against Sloane this weekend. Many have said he relies on tackles, i see him getting at least 9 tackles on Sloane alone. He may have a fair bit of the ball along the way.

I remember Mitch Wallis did the tag on Ablett laid alot of tackles and a fair bit of possies. I see Selwood doing the same.

So I'll be taking that chance this week bringing him in my team, he'll give me a good cash generation as well.

    INPieman · 30/05/2017 at 10:14

    Agree Donkey. It's worth holding off on Sloane for that very reason. When he gets tagged his numbers crash. Conversely Scooter provides value based on tackling numbers alone

      Catcace · 30/05/2017 at 14:43

      Do you honestly think that Scootter will be his only tag over the next few weeks?

    Stanks21 · 30/05/2017 at 12:29

    Totally agree. He was getting 30 plus touches a game to go with 10 tackles in the VFL. Hasnt hit his stride yet.

Moosehead · 30/05/2017 at 10:07

Recently I have noticed a logo type thingy before the person's name and when you click it, it shows that person's previous remarks. Perhaps this 'mark' should be Mandatory to eliminate the insulting, disgusting rants sometimes written by frustrated, evil people. I am sure these gutless wonders would then tone their comments down if they had to publically wear it. What about it Jock and Company or can't it become compulsory?

    INPieman · 30/05/2017 at 10:12

    Agree Moose. The kids need to start playing nicely

      Moosehead · 30/05/2017 at 11:51

      Is it the kids? I wonder if my suggestion will be taken heed of. If enough people support the suggestion, common sense may prevail especially with impersonations going on. Someone wrote something nasty and signed in as Derek who is a terrific contributor.
      So Pieman, what about the logo thing before your name?
      You wrote well about Scharanberg and am tossing up who to select out of him or McInnes with the latter suiting my bye structure better but Scharanberg probably has better job security but now that Kennedy is out! What do you think?
      Two questions to you. Hope you have the time to answer them, particularly the former. Cheers.

        hedski · 30/05/2017 at 12:09

        You just have to get an intense debate or WordPress account or you can log in thru twitter I believe Moose, can do it at the bottom of the page under where you comment, agreed makes it easier to sort the impersonators out (mostly).

          moosehead · 30/05/2017 at 12:16

          thank you

    BoltonsBlues · 30/05/2017 at 16:03

    didnt even know you could log in like that, just made an account now

      Russty_ · 30/05/2017 at 16:32

      Good one, saves you from some asshat logging in under your name and saying stupid things..has been happening often lately.

FEARTHEBEARD · 30/05/2017 at 10:14

Yeo, Franklin, Greene?

Cash no issue.

Bolton or Cousins for mid too?

    Josh · 30/05/2017 at 10:24

    Ben Cousins doesn't play anymore and Brendan Bolton is the coach of Carlton. Can't trade either of them in sorry to say.

    SCdonkey · 30/05/2017 at 10:35

    Yeo has been consistent so far this year.
    Franklin can go large at times, will also go low at times.
    Greene has been playing well, will be a good POD

Josh · 30/05/2017 at 10:17

Thinking of trading in Liam Jones. Thoughts?

    Jack · 30/05/2017 at 10:28

    id rather see you get in clinton jones, much more points to be scored

Jack · 30/05/2017 at 10:21

when is josh schache going to play i am sick of getting donuts

    Josh · 30/05/2017 at 10:42

    Trade in Steve Smith, seems to get 100 every time he plays.

Sellars1226 · 30/05/2017 at 10:35

Is Sloane a trade in this week? His lowest score has only been 72 while being tagged and I'm not sure if he's gonna get any cheaper so I'm conseridng trading him in this week ( I know he's gonna get tagged by Scotty )

    Tiger · 30/05/2017 at 14:58

    No I don't think so. Had him last year and when he cops a tag he goes missing. I'm sure you will be able to pick him up later in the season at the same price or less. In the meantime you'll have some time to see weather he can cope better with the tag as I'm sure he will cop plenty of attention from hear on in.

    JEL · 30/05/2017 at 19:04

    It's a choice between Sloane & Pendles for me this week, I'm going with Pendles.

    Sloane is great, but I can see him getting tagged at every opportunity from here on in.

Ben · 30/05/2017 at 12:18

Who do you guys reckon will end up being the top 6 forwards?

    Stanks21 · 30/05/2017 at 12:33

    Yeo, McRae, Greene, Dalhaus, Nankervis, Franklin
    Possibly 2 or 3 others fighting for it also

      DefyingMadness · 30/05/2017 at 12:36

      I would put Heeney above Franklin

      DacZawson · 30/05/2017 at 16:24

      JJK surely gets a spot based on average but not a trade in option at the moment

    Josh · 30/05/2017 at 13:51

    Ty Vickery, Lewis Taylor, Jesse White, Josh Walker, Lindsay Thomas and Blaine Boekherst.

      Russty_ · 30/05/2017 at 13:59

      Don't forget Eric Hipwood and Travis Cloke! 🙂

KERCHOW · 30/05/2017 at 14:16

Are Michael Hibberd and Joel Selwood top 5 in their positions?

Tiger · 30/05/2017 at 14:23

Good news Kennedy out for 1 week plus his bye, back round 13

jenny · 31/05/2017 at 12:37

keep tex till his bye or give him the flick????
