I landed on Sunday, very happy to be back in the wide, brown land of ours.

Back to footy. Back to my dog. Normal sounding accents. Good coffee. Back to a land with Barbie Mates – seriously, New Zealand, pull ya heads in ya drongos – GET BARBIE MATES.

Then three things happened. I checked my supercoach side, I went to work and Margaret Court opened her mouth. Two of these things reminded me of how nice it was to not be in the country, and checking my supercoach side reminded me the consequences of leaving the country during footy season.

But – all is not lost. Draftstars has popped up this weekend, and I for one am loving the appeal of a game where all your bad decisions from previous weeks don’t carry over, because my side is littered with bad decisions and half-baked schemes. I can go to a pub and play CoachKings. Things are not all terrible. Just mostly terrible.

Speaking of terrible, let’s get into the news!


It was a surprisingly dull week on the news front, which means all my pre-prepared jokes about International Donut Day will go to waste.

The two big-ticket items are the return of Aaron Sandilands and Gary Ablett. Sandiballs has been named in the ruck, but keep an eye on him in the lead up to Sunday’s match, but Ablett should be ready to go.

Eagles spearhead, Josh J. Kennedy will miss for the Eagles – but we already knew that. Rookie Malcolm Karpany also makes way. Eric McKenzie comes in, which means Jeremy McGovern may play up forward.

Dan Butler returns for the Tiges, and bubble boy Shai Bolton has kept his spot alongside him. However, the Tigers are running with 5 smalls up forward, so I’m not sure where that leaves their structure (and Bolton’s job security) going forward.

The pre-season’s love child Luke Ryan has FINALLY been named by Ross… in the last spot on Freo’s extended bench. I had Nat Fyfe take this photo of me while I eavesdropping on Fremantle’s selection meeting this week.


Tom Scully is back at the expense of Tim Mohr, rookie Jordan Curnico has been dropped and… well that’s about it. Thursday Night footy’s team news was boring as anything as both Port and Hawthorn went in unchanged, as did Adelaide and North Melbourne.




If there was ever a time when sides needed patching up, it was the bye rounds. Which is why I wanted to chuck up some reviews of blokes playing every game through the byes – guys from Port and Gold Coast who could be nice little PODs.

But half of them are now locked out, due to the AFL’s persistent attempts to make my life as hard as possible ever since I kinda ran over Gil’s dog with my car*. Sorry Donald, but THIS is the single greatest witch hunt in history. I’m going to power through anyway, but remember – I wrote this last night at about 6, intending for it to be ready by 7. Including the Charlie Dixon writeup.

*well, replace the word ‘kinda’ with ‘repeatedly’, and the word ‘dog’ with ‘son’

Like a Cheat Sheet Lite, I’m going to list someone from every line who can help you get through the byes.

DEF – Jarrod Harbrow ($474,400) – currently sitting in my (very POD heavy) backline due to Lek’s masterful sighting of him a few weeks ago, Harbrow has quietly averaged 95 this season, with 5 tons from his 7 games. Playing a rebounding role with stints on the wing, he’s been incredibly consistent and is still very cheap. Possibly not a lock for a top 6 defender spot, but playing every game through the byes gives him a one up on others in the same bracket.

MID – Gary Ablett ($611,800) – the GOAT of the modern era (from a fantasy perspective anyway) is staggeringly cheap. For someone who can average 130 when fit and firing, I’d almost consider Gary a must-have at this price. He’s been amassing the pill like no-one’s business, and with another week off, he’s primed to rip back into the contest and grab clearances, tackles, contested possessions and whatever else it is Champion Data use to create Supercoach scores now. Only at 9% ownership, too.

RUC – Paddy Ryder ($508,00) – after a slow start to the year, Paddy is averaging 107 in his last three and is singlehandedly driving Port Adelaide’s revival. With the added bonus of DPP and finding match fitness, Port also play 8 of their next 13 at home. Which is awkward considering he’s now locked out from being traded in. Damn you, Gil!

FWD – Tom Lynch ($462,00) – while Tom still has a price drop to come, I’d look to bring him in this week if you need to cover donuts. While he hasn’t torn the competition apart like he threatened to this year, that’s partly due to playing for Gold Coast, who have been woeful. So why is he being considered? Because all the forwards this year beyond Dahlhaus, Macrae and Yeo have been dreadful. Shaun Higgins is like the 10th averaging forward of those who’ve played more than 3 games. Lynch is cheap, will play every game and is an absolute jet – if Gold Coast finally get their sh*t together, he could be anything.  

SMOKIE – Charlie Dixon ($508,500) – In a shocking year for forwards, sometimes we have to turn to those beyond our mortal coil. That is where Charlie Dixon, who sadly passed away a few years ago, only to be reanimated by the Port Adelaide Football Club, may come into the play. Dixon is averaging 95 points a game this year and 103 over the past 5 rounds, putting him the 14th best forward in the league by total points. It’d be a brave fantasy footballer to pick him, but with high scores of 131 and 155 and a revitalised Port Adelaide, I’m keeping a very close eye on him.

Pity he and his 160 are locked out for this week though. Have I mentioned how much I hate Thursday Night Football?


Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d have noticed we’ve got a big community only DraftStars contest on this Sunday, and the Father of Fantasy wants to give us some pointers – make sure you also check out Higgo’s surpurb post last night as well!

Draftstars Academy


Jump onboard the contest, support the community and try to get your hands on some of the cash folks! Back to Panic business..


Everything’s coming up Milhouse

If you aren’t trading in Hugh Greenwood this week: go get your noggin cleaned out, you absolute bell-end. With a breakeven of -107, he is the must-have cash generation machine of the week. I’m with Higgo in that I think Scott Selwood will disappoint many through either form or injury, but judging from how my gut’s treated me this year I’d trust it as far as I could throw it.

Blokes with *asterisks* have the bye this week, and those with exclamation marks! have only played the one game, so give ‘em another week.

-104 – Hugh Greenwood
-74 – James Cousins!
-48 – Scott Selwood
-41 – Shai Bolton
-34 – Matt Scharenberg!
-27 – Mitch Hannan*
-25 – Jordan Cunico (who’s been dropped)
-9 – Daniel Lloyd
11 – Jake Barrett*
11 – Matt Perryman

Dig up, stupid!

Couple of big names floating around this list, with Zach Merrett and Elliot Yeo looking to dip in price, so we can snaffle them up after their byes. Stefan Martin may also plummet in price if Archie Smith keeps getting games, and I’m keeping an eye on him for when Archie heads back to the NEAFL.

178 – Lachie Neale
163 – Jake Lloyd
156 – Marcus Bontempelli
155 – Tom J Lynch
145 – Zach Merrett
145 – Matt Priddis
137 – Stefan Martin
137 – Elliot Yeo


And so we come, as we always do, to everyone’s favourite superhero – Captain McCaptainface. Faster than a speeding bullet, as strong as a locomotive and he can leap entire donuts in a single bound!

Which is a good thing this week, as today is international donut day, just as the first week of the byes are upon us.

If this isn’t proof of a cabal of world leaders scheming to run the world, I don’t know what is. IT’S A CONSPIRACY, IT IS. Anyway, speaking of conspiracies, getting Geelong to play 27 of their last 13 games (or something like that) of their games at Simmonds Stadium is a recipe for Joel Selwood to go huge.

He’s my VC choice this week, despite Paddy Dangerfield coming off the back of two 150+ scores. For those bringing in Rory Sloane this week, he only averages 102 against the Cats, and an even worse 82 at Simmonds. Good trade-in option, but I’d pass on the VC.

Otherwise, the sensible choice would be to go with Scott Pendlebury or Dustin Martin as captain this week, as both are rather good footballers. Pendles in particular averages 112 out west, while Dusty averages 110 against the Roos.

If you’re mad as a cut snake, Josh Kelly could tear the Bombers a new one for the 9.4% of you that have him. Averaging 118 over his past three, and playing at home against a bombers midfield that genuinely have no clue how to play defensively, he could rack up a record number of clearances – especially if Mummy gets up and going. Speaking of, Shane Mumford wouldn’t be a terrible POD captaincy option either.   

AND THAT’S IT FROM ME – community, I’ll see you in the draft stars contest on Sunday, but until then, rejoice in what makes this country great – barbie mates and footy and accents and beer – responsibly, of course (that goes for you too, Crouching.)

LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 11:29

Thanks Patch! Dustin does seem best to put the C on… think Ablett is due to go big but might stay safe this round.

pod · 02/06/2017 at 11:34

Selwood as VC tonight with those numbers, and Ablett for C maybe.. what's everyone doing this week?

    Tommo · 02/06/2017 at 11:41

    Had Titch as VC but changed my mind last minute (pooed myself a little bit when my I got a message saying I had no data left). Going Danger VC and Pendles/Treloar C

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 11:41

    I've got the C on Pendles, pod

      pod · 02/06/2017 at 11:56

      Safe bet Patch, who's VC?

        pod · 02/06/2017 at 11:57

        .. just noticed above sorry mate.

          Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:12

          no worries! Selwood for others reading who've forgotten!

    Rivo · 02/06/2017 at 11:46

    Going with Danger into Pendles, worked last week.

      pod · 02/06/2017 at 11:55

      Seems crazy to jump off Danger i know, but I think a tag will slow him a bit. Also think Sloane will struggle with Scooter all over him. Last time I VC'd Joel was when he went big 150+ so hopefully my feeling is right again. Good luck.

        Rivo · 02/06/2017 at 12:01

        Got a feeling J.Selwood may get a hard tag tonight. Still a good VC call as is Danger.

        Sloane may get off the leash too as I reckon the Adelaide mids will go after Scott Selwood tonight.

        Will be a massive game. Good luck with your VC choice. I'm staying with Danger.

    JohndJames · 02/06/2017 at 13:00

    Going with the old firm,Danger into Pendles.

TL4 · 02/06/2017 at 11:41

Out Lloyd in s selwood via dpp
Bring Lloyd back in 3 weeks after he has dropped 70k. With limited cash generating rookies left cash in on opportunities like this during bye rounds!

    LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 11:47

    er. you must have like 0 issues with your team and a massive amount of trades to do trades like this!

    jez_m · 02/06/2017 at 11:56

    Why would you burn a trade on Lloyd, only to trade him back in? Just hold him if you have 18 players playing this week.

    Eskimo · 02/06/2017 at 12:04

    Im trting not to. But i have similar idea. Going ablett to s.selwood then s.selwood to bont next week. 2 trades get me 100k turnaround and cheap bont.

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:14

    This is very sneaky, TL4! It's worked for winners in the past, but you do need to ask how much you value a trade. If you can save 200k on a $700,000 injured Gary Ablett, you'd do it, but I'm not sure if 70k is worth two trades, even in a year like this.

    I'd personally look to other moves, but you do you!

      tl4 · 02/06/2017 at 13:01

      There is more too it. I want s selwood, I have wanted him from the start of the year. There aren't a ton of downgrade options coming up for the rest of the year either
      my other options to trade out was
      SPP (keen to keep his scoring through bye rounds)
      Hannan (have enough players to carry him this week and enjoy his price increases next 2 weeks)
      Stewart (playing this week and will increase in price again)
      Newman (Not convinced he cant be in my final 6 backs)

      so I either trade out a player going to go up and keep Lloyd or trade Lloyd, let the players increase and get him back much cheaper (or another back if circumstances arise).

        LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 13:20

        still doesn't justify losing two trades for 70k. sorry 🙂 trades are golden remember!!

    SC_Kev7 · 02/06/2017 at 12:59

    I've had perfect trade plans for the past 3 weeks ruined by those bastards at the selection table. 70k is not worth the hassle

    whatyousmokin · 02/06/2017 at 22:00

    Haha what a joke

Danny · 02/06/2017 at 11:43

Can you really see Archie being sent back to the NEAFL?
He had a reasonable game and you'd think the Lions will want to get more games into him.

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:15

    I think Archie will have a least a month in him before they give him a spell, but if keeps playing well he could be there all year, which is worrying for Stef owners

      Danny · 02/06/2017 at 12:31

      I agree, I think it's time to move on Stef before he bleeds $ and I slip ranks!

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 12:50

    At the game last week I forgot Stef was playing. But certainty notice Archie. If he keeps playing Stef owners need to start working out an exit strategy. When they both play Archie outscores Stef every game

    Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 06:53

    Give Stef at least a few more weeks. You need to see how the coach is using Arch and Stef together

North · 02/06/2017 at 11:48

Is anyone else thinking of holding Kennedy

    FetusDave · 02/06/2017 at 12:04

    Maybe. I've heard that it might be only one week, maybe 3, which would mean he could play round 13. Would save a sideways trade.

    Wattsieesq · 02/06/2017 at 12:06

    I will be

    Tommo · 02/06/2017 at 12:15

    Everyone is holding him you stooge. Its all in the physics.

    LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 12:35

    holding. easy decision.

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 12:51

    If I had him I'd keep him. Almost certain top 6 & it's during the byes. Will likely only miss 1 or 2 games

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 13:13

    Holding for now and we'll if he plays in Rd 13 or not.

      zilla · 02/06/2017 at 14:13

      of course… are u mental?

        SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 14:33

        I am Mentally Ill, but that's not the issue here. Comments like yours doesn't really help the community or reason for a person to whether trade or not trade.

        My reason of holding for now and see if he'll play in Rd 13. There could be a possibility he might be out longer.

        If ya don't have anyhing better to say, than asking or calling people names. It's best to just stay quiet and move on.

          FCAbel · 02/06/2017 at 14:49


        SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 14:47

        You asked for the SC commandments and Jock posted it for you.
        Read it since you asked for it.

        I don't trade premo unless i have to or have planned for it.

        Heck i have a few i stuck by since at the start of the season
        Trealor (held him as long as I could and planned to move him on during byes, unfortunately his bye came early) – Pendle
        St Nick moved him when he stated he was gonna be 4 weeks out – in Buddy

    Tommo09 · 02/06/2017 at 17:34

    Traded him out on Monday and forgot I couldn't reverse trades today when I realised he may only be out for 1-2
    BIG mistake

NickMacMan · 02/06/2017 at 11:51

Fisher to Scooter or Bolton??

    Wattsieesq · 02/06/2017 at 12:07

    Bolton for cash generation.

      Brett H · 02/06/2017 at 14:57

      Reckon Scooter will make as much coin as Bolton (if not more).

      The query with Bolton is whether he can keep getting a game in round 13 onwards?

      When thinking about Bolton, I still keep hearing Hardwick say in his press conference that Bolton wasn't really ready for AFL. Tis was after he had played his first game.

        Tommo09 · 02/06/2017 at 17:03

        If I decide to get Bolton, I will just need him to play during byes as after I hope to be at full premo

James · 02/06/2017 at 11:56

Get Sloane now or wait a couple on Neale? (disregarding bye structure)

    Wattsieesq · 02/06/2017 at 12:07

    I like Neale. Underrated.

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:16

    As much as I love Neale, Sloane is top dog this season and if you can get him, I'd do it.

    Swans2012 · 02/06/2017 at 12:31

    I'm waiting

    Rivo · 02/06/2017 at 12:40

    I've traded in Sloane this week. Price is good, and feel he could go large again tonight., even with Selwoods hanging off him. Go for it!

FetusDave · 02/06/2017 at 12:03

What are the chances JJK comes back after the bye? Will he play round 13?

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:16

    He should be back in round 13 according to the Weagles. I'd hold him if I had him

Simon · 02/06/2017 at 12:11

Do sub loop holes work over the bye rounds?

    Tommo · 02/06/2017 at 12:16


    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 12:16


Chris · 02/06/2017 at 12:18

I'm torn, need to choose two of Neale, Pendles and Sloane to finish my Mid

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 13:16

    I wouldn't be torn. I'd be celebrating that problem with some frothies

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 13:17

    How can you be torn with Dependlebury and Sloane dog? If you have the cash bring them both in while they are cheap.

LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 12:34

Everyone's trading out premiums!!! Time for the Supercoach Commandments to come back Jock!

    DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 13:02

    I stuck to my guns for this round

    Newman > Perryman
    Barrett > Bolton
    Fisher > J.Selwood (the protein)

    Next week it will be

    McGrath > Hibberd or Montagna
    Stewart > Cousins
    Parsons > Greene, Koby or Higgins

    Then I'm full Premo and will ride out the storms to come

    4 players I'm sure I wil have to fix 2 of them
    Bad form – Fyfe Shiel
    Risk holding – Steff Sandi

      LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 13:22

      nice David. wont be trading out barett myself as he has money to make still.
      Perryman doesn't have a huge bubble but has good JS atm it seems.

      liking the rest absolutely tho!! (go greene btw)

        DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 13:29

        Ty mate

        Going to keep Berry over Barrett for swing with Perryman
        Bolton and Greenwood the other swing

          LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 13:34

          I have fyfe, sandi and steff too so just gonna see how they go the next two weeks through the carnage byes then reassess 🙂

    jockreynolds · 02/06/2017 at 13:47

    Good call Logan. Refreshment time:

      Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:49

      Seeing this article back hurts my soul. I far too many of these

        INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 16:44

        I seem to have broken a lot of these commandments. But it was fun!

      FetusDave · 02/06/2017 at 14:54

      Set and forget ruckmen, Sandi and Witts. Who could've picked that?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 16:46

        U would have to be a f Witt with your head in the sand to pick those two keepers.

          whatyasmokin · 02/06/2017 at 17:31

          Or possibly you'd have to be the called the same if you didn't give a 200K ruck a chance.

        whatyasmokin · 02/06/2017 at 17:30

        Sandi has missed a game with injury, and probably more to come. Doubt he'll be a keeper.

Swans2012 · 02/06/2017 at 12:39

I keep looking for reasons not to c danger tonight.
I think I'm outsmarting myself. Sometimes the obvious solution is the right one.

I'm keeping it simple, danger, captain, that is all.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 16:44

    Sometimes the smartest thing is to act dumb.

    finnigin · 02/06/2017 at 17:35

    why not put the vc on him in case of injury, off game , and if so then loop someone else, logic not smarts

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 18:29

      VC on titch last night

        Swans2012 · 02/06/2017 at 18:57

        Exactly trig….didn't expect them to be quite so deplorable

Nick · 02/06/2017 at 12:47

Schaz or Ryan (if named). Do both have good js?

    LoganJosh7 · 02/06/2017 at 13:00

    you sure you cant wait a week or two?

    SC_Kev7 · 02/06/2017 at 13:02

    Shaz. They love him at the Pies. Ross Lyon and rookies? Nah… Wait until he is on the bubble and 193% confirmed to play his third game

      Harry H · 02/06/2017 at 14:06

      Yep Ross and rookies is a worry. Probably when he drops Ryan, something like 'It's not ideal as we'd love to get some game time into the kid but this a ruthless business. He's just not quite fitting our structure at the moment but he'll go back and work really hard, get some continuity into his footy, and I'm sure he'll be considered for selection.'

      Or same bland dialogue like that.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 16:42

    Ryan isn't playing yet is he?
    Only on extended bench.
    Wait until at least named in team and then wait some more being Ross until he is on the bubble and 10 mins b4 kick off in his third game.

      DacZawson · 02/06/2017 at 17:52

      Got named in place of Ibbotson

TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 12:53

Byes make it easy don't they?
I would assume most of us have a dear bench this week and don't have to worry about looping.
Bont, doc, JPK, Dahl etc warming the pine
20 scorers on field, 2 non players with Rd 11 bye. – C on Danger
That is all.
rest is up to the players.

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 13:22

    Sure do Trig, been looking at my team and bench players are way too expensive to be sitting there.

INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 12:55

Don't mind those trades Rivo. But personally I'm holding Barrett for a little while longer. He's going up & Bont is going down. I'll wait for that transaction to be as cheap as possible

    Rivo · 02/06/2017 at 17:08

    Sounds good to me. Bont was very tempting too but opted for Sloane.

Paul · 02/06/2017 at 13:06

1. Balic to Greenwood
2. Pickett to Bolton
3. Marchbank to Z. Williams

Thoughts everyone?

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:50

    Z. Williams a sneaky pod and I like it.

INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 13:08

Love it Patch. You say Gary is cheap at 611K. After his 210 he was on 60 half way through the second quarter until Danger crushed him. At that point he stopped going for contested footy & scoring dropped off again. He's carrying a 197 BE this week & likely to be much cheaper in weeks to come. I traded him for Yeo to stop bye donuts. But if he starts looking good again I've held SPP & Berrett to get him back

    DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 13:09

    My Shiel or Fyfe for Ablett if the price is right after the bye rounds

      INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 13:34

      Sheil I could understand. His ceiling is low for a premo mid

        DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 13:35

        Yeah it is! What I never knew was his tank it weak as fk only gets 70-75% TOG it hurts his scoring

          INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 14:11

          We discussed his TOG during the preseason. Spends more than 1/4 of re game with his butt on the pine. Must have his own ass print by now

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:51

    Oh my word he is too – still like him as an option this week though. He's had the extra break to manage the shoulder, too.

bob the builder · 02/06/2017 at 13:09

Balic to Bolton this week or cousins next week??

    Richie Porte · 02/06/2017 at 13:27

    same as my question. Someone give this man some advice.

    Richie Porte · 02/06/2017 at 13:28

    Or is Balic coming back soon

      Goat · 02/06/2017 at 13:47

      I can't assist on Balic's return but I reckon he will be given time in the 2s by Ross even when he is available. Traded him out weeks ago with that in mind.

    Goat · 02/06/2017 at 13:31

    Cousins is better, cheaper and you get to wait a week to see how many other things go wrong before you burn the trade.

    Imgonnalose · 02/06/2017 at 13:54

    Bolton depending on byes

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 14:12

    Balic has to go. Bolton for his handy dpp

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:51

    Reckon Cousins has the better job security and scoring output – if you're only going one of the two, Cousins.

    whatyasmokin · 02/06/2017 at 17:28


    Tommo09 · 02/06/2017 at 17:45

    Getting both
    Bolton this week and cousins next

JohndJames · 02/06/2017 at 13:14

Three trades this week,two downgrades,one upgrade,Balic to Greenwood,Melican to Scharenberg and Fisher to Pendles,which gives me full premo in the mids,but only 13 trades left,and only 17 on the field but will be alright for R12 & R13.The only problem is I play Jock in one of my leagues this round and he has more than 18 playing,so I'm stuffed.

Steeeve · 02/06/2017 at 13:15

No need for me to panic. I brought in Robbie Gray this week. Time to sit back, relax and bask in my own stupidity.

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 13:29

    Did you bring him in for SPP who doubled his score?

      Steeeve · 02/06/2017 at 14:52

      Why yes, yes I did

        INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 15:54

        Double fisted!

          Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 09:03

          50 shades of Steeeve? 😛

        Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 16:00

        Hahaha, love your honesty Steeeve, chin up, it'll get better, hopefully he will too.

        Rick Grimes · 02/06/2017 at 17:13

        There's no worse feeling than a recently traded premo filling your knickers with filthy stains while the rookie you ousted goes on a bender. I had the Newman reaming a few weeks back. It hurts.

          BlakeyP · 02/06/2017 at 19:27

          Yeah I got it with Z Jones last week such a good feelin

jamie · 02/06/2017 at 13:32

IN: dusty, greene, greenwood
OUT: barret, balic and nick riewoldt thoughts?


full premo after. thoughts?

    Imgonnalose · 02/06/2017 at 13:52

    Sounds good mate I like it

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 14:37

    Trading out Roo is stupid

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:52

    If you've held Roo for this long I'd continue holding

    David C · 02/06/2017 at 18:33

    Roo has to go.

Imgonnalose · 02/06/2017 at 13:47

Hey guys, I started off the year firing and was within the top 400 after round 5 or 6
However, I have dropped significantly to around the top 7000
I have good coverage during the byes, what is the highest ranking I could hope to achieve this year?

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 14:14

    You could still make the top 100. Still a long way to go & no doubt carnage at some point

    Rick Grimes · 02/06/2017 at 17:05

    A big week can easily pump you back up top 2000. Or drop you another 2000. There's not much in it and I suspect some fairly random teams floating about.

Stupid Coach · 02/06/2017 at 13:54

Welcome back Patch. Just in time for the fun and games known as the bye rounds. Like most people, my issues are this round and Round 13. Currently sitting on 19 trades and 16 players on the field. Can't decide whether to make two or three trades this round or make two and leave the three trades to Round 13. I thinking of the following trades this week:
1. Hampton to Perryman and Marchbank to Adams (DPP handy), Harbrow or Zac Williams.
2. Fisher to Perryman/Bolton and Marchbank to Adams (DPP handy), Harbrow or Zac Williams
3. Option 1 plus Fisher to Bolton to give the me cash to upgrade next week or the following week.

Any thoughts/comments appreciated.

    Imgonnalose · 02/06/2017 at 13:55

    Option 3, you have heaps of trades, are you nearly full premo?

      Stupid Coach · 02/06/2017 at 14:52

      Thanks Imgonnalose. I am still a fair way from full premo as I still have a lot of rookies in my team that I have yet to upgrade particularly in the forward line and midfield and was hoping o make those over the next couple of weeks when they start coming off their byes. Two trades is a bare minimum to make up 18 on the field. I just want to make sure I have enough trades after the byes.

      Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:52

      Agree, good call

        Stupid Coach · 02/06/2017 at 16:59

        Thanks Patch. Which out of Adams, Harbrow or Z Williams would you go to replace Marchbank. I noticed you mentioned Harbrow earlier – I agree he would be good from a bye perspective, however, Adams is better from a scoring perspective and has the added advantage of DPP.

          Stupid Coach · 02/06/2017 at 17:35

          Thinking of Scharenberg instead of Perryman. Only query is his job security and prone to injury. Not much difference in price, however, he seems to have better potential to increase in value provided he keeps his spot and is injury free. Thoughts????

Craig · 02/06/2017 at 14:36

Geez the D6 position is a tough one to work out between Rance and Z. Williams. Rance has had a couple of poor weeks this year but if you look at his back-end of last year and his ceiling he makes a compelling case, or do you go for the relative consistency of Zac Williams based on this year's form (they have a pretty good run coming up)?

Feel like either is a good pick but at the same time don't really want to get the toss of the coin wrong!

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:54

    I like Williams but as you say they're hard to split. Williams seems less likely to play quiet games and has pinched Heath Shaw's role, while Rance will have to play shut down roles at times.

    The Ranger · 02/06/2017 at 15:05

    Williams played in the middle for a fair bit of their last game which makes him an even more attractive option.

MickyB · 02/06/2017 at 14:41

Trade mcinnes or hibberd (north) for ryan?

Is ryan worth getting in?
Good scoring potential / job security

    bob the builder · 02/06/2017 at 14:46

    not yet

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 14:55

    Wait to see on Ryan – I'm not trusting Ross unless he's named Ryan onfield for his 3rd game

Tommo09 · 02/06/2017 at 14:44

JJK to Mumford
Balic to Selwood

Is it worth also going Eddy/Barrett to Bolton?
Or should I wait a week or two for Cousins, Scharenberg, Ryan etc?

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 15:03

    Lovoe the Mumford trade, but would consider holding JJK unless you're really struggling for warm bodies

      Tommo09 · 02/06/2017 at 17:01

      Dammit already traded earlier in this week and now can't reverse trades
      Maybe Fisher to Bolton???
      It gives me 18 on field

        Patch · 02/06/2017 at 17:16

        Fisher to Bolton a decent trade mate!

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 17:13

    I was considering the same trade JJK to Mummy, decided to wait until RD 13 if JJK is all good to play.

    Still mamage to get Mummy in my team though and double downgrade cash in some dosh in the bank for 2 more upgrade in 2 or 3 weeks.

    Only need to upgrade
    1 maybe 2 (Shaw) in defense
    1 in Mid
    Maybe in Ruck so long Witts keeps getting the job done
    Fwd is filled

MickyB · 02/06/2017 at 14:47

Danger, sloane, treloar or yeo for captain? Titch was vc

    Patch · 02/06/2017 at 17:15

    Danger for mine Micky

Cliffy · 02/06/2017 at 14:53

Really tossing and turning on my last trade of 3 I want to make this week.

Have planned for the first two to go (keeping in mind this is all for cash generation to make quick upgrades next week):

Balic – Bolton
Berry – Scharenberg (yes a little early, but I like Scharenberg more than Perryman, and I'll still have MID/DEF DPP thanks to other players that have it)

And the third one that's doing my head in is to jump on S.Selwood for one of Fisher or Barrett, however Barrett still has a favorable BE, will play next week and with Fisher I'll lose money making this trade if I was to move him on for S.Selwood.

Cliffy · 02/06/2017 at 14:54

Should add that I have 18 trades left, $183,200 left in bank and only 15 playing this week so far

Ken · 02/06/2017 at 14:55

Sloane or jelwood last premo mid spot

Holty · 02/06/2017 at 14:57

Although i would not agree with the tactics but rumour has it in Adelaide that Sloane might go to Danger for a negating role if he struggles early to break the Selwood tag. I guess one way to break a tag is to go and tag someone yourself.

    DacZawson · 02/06/2017 at 17:57

    I'd imagine Danger would be a little too powerful for Sloane to contain him. Maybe more likely to go to Selwood if he was to tag

    wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 18:39

    If the cats tag sloane it will be guthrie not scooter.

      Holty · 02/06/2017 at 19:07

      That is a good call Wombat. Allows Scooter to do his thing.

        wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 20:23

        I couldn't have been any wronger.
        Liking the look of ZSmith as a pod

Eve · 02/06/2017 at 15:44

19 trades 27k.
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)
3 Trades to go. Options welcome. Thinking I want to get in Selwood, Greenwood, Lynch
How could I get in Jelwood?

JJF · 02/06/2017 at 16:26

Bolton or Scooter?

    Holty · 02/06/2017 at 16:40

    Im going bolton as it allows me to grab Pendles as well.
    People would be split here but if it was just for a option to generate quick cash, id go Selwood as even if he averages 80 for the next few weeks, he will still make you a fair bit. Plus he has great job security.

Joshua · 02/06/2017 at 16:33

Barrett-Scott Selwood
Fairly set on these trades but should I go Bolton or Selwood?

BockChoy · 02/06/2017 at 16:40

I had fully intended to use this round as a triple downgrade and pocket the cash… but I was allured in by all the talk around those glistening thighs and I realised I could maintain my bye structure and also upgrade at the same time. As such, it is SPP traded out near his top and Wines brought at his low.

Only other trades are the obvious Balic->Greenwood and Berry to Perryman.

I was strongly tossing up between Berry and Barret but then realised that cash in the Supercoach bank doesn't earn interest and it didn't make any difference which one was traded.

AuroraBorealis?! · 02/06/2017 at 16:49

Just going to put this out there to prove that i said it, Scooter is a trap, select at your own risk.

    whatyasmokin · 02/06/2017 at 16:51

    Have had second thoughts about him myself. I don't have enough trades to take the risk so locked in Pendles, Sloane and greenwood this week.

    Rick Grimes · 02/06/2017 at 17:02

    I agree. Expecting a 75 this weekend.

      Derek · 02/06/2017 at 17:46

      I can see him tagging Sloane and not scoring very well. Has his bye next week.

      I can see people looking at their teams in a few weeks and thinking 'Why do I have SSelwood in my team?'

    wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 18:43

    Are all the other rookies on the bubble traps? Is there a un-publicised game rule that says you can't trade him out after he makes the cash you want?
    Please explain why he's a trap

      AuroraBorealis?! · 02/06/2017 at 18:48

      To me trading him in and out is just a waste of a trade, and i feel like a lot of people are being blinded by his high-tackle inflated scores, that being said, people are free to do what they please, i'm just personally going to steer clear.

        Wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 19:32

        Fair enough different opinions are the foundation of different strategies. But it's a better waste of a trade than getting a rookie don't you think?

    Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 09:07

    101 score isn't bad for a trap 😛

Will · 02/06/2017 at 16:51

Sloane or Danger C?

Rick Grimes · 02/06/2017 at 17:10

This is the weekend Shaw goes huge. Just feel it in my waters (whatever that means).

    Derek · 02/06/2017 at 17:43

    Hope so

      SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 17:50

      Will save me a trade.

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 18:01

    Even if he goes big this week unless he goes big again the week after he is out of my team before his bye to avoid a donut

    David C · 02/06/2017 at 18:02

    I'm trading him next week if he doesn't. Get's me Doc.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 02/06/2017 at 18:38

    My team really does hope so Rick

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 19:04

    Game on in the happy place this week Rick. 🙂

    wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 19:28

    You should be on the telly

    Stanks21 · 03/06/2017 at 16:31

    Traded him already. I gave him a few weeks and he failed. Traded in Danger

Rhys · 02/06/2017 at 17:17

Just wondering if we can still reverse our trades? It seems like I can't do it, but none of my trades involve anyone from either of thursdays teams. Anyone got any info on this?

    Albentley · 02/06/2017 at 17:19

    Can't reverse once first game is played even if they haven't played yet

hedski · 02/06/2017 at 17:30

Ryan is in! On ya Ross now don't drop him after three games.

    Beady Eye · 02/06/2017 at 17:34

    Ibbotson out is a good sign… frees up that intercepting half back role which should suit Ryan perfectly.

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 17:44

    That's a good sign, and yeah! Let's hope Ross doesn't drop him would be nice to have a decent Rookie on the 2nd half of the season.

Holty · 02/06/2017 at 17:49

Although im not trading for him this week but SCOOTER?
Seen many comments on here critisizing people for bringing him in or simply saying he is a trap. People are not bringing him in as a keeper (i hope not anyway). He is purely to make us quick cash to then upgrade. Apart from Greenwood, who right now is on the bubble who has good job security and can potentially score well? People say expect 80 average from him from now. What is wrong with that?
He would still make you more money then Perryman or Bolton if they averaged 50 from now plus give you 30 extra points a week. Unless you can bring in a premo (reason im bringing in Bolton) i honestly think Scooter is the best potential money grab (minus Greenwood).

    wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 18:33

    Spot on Holty most people trading in scooter are doing it because he's like a high scoring high priced rookie. I don't see the sense in getting a fringe rookie with a 65 ceiling instead of a best 22 midfielder with a 155 ceiling.
    After 5-6 games it's a lot easier to upgrade a 380-420k player than a 220-260k player

    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 18:48

    If i traded out JJK i would've got Mummy, Selwood and Rookie on the bubble. So i went 2 down 1 up (Mummy) was short by 30k to get Selwood, will just have to miss out on him and try to save some cash for another upgrade in 2 weeks.

      Holty · 02/06/2017 at 19:04

      Same donkey. Want pendles so 40k short on Scooter.

    hedski · 02/06/2017 at 19:19

    Just traded him in, go Scoots.

Crowmagnon · 02/06/2017 at 17:55

Should I trade out fisher or barrett?
One has to go tonight!

    hedski · 02/06/2017 at 19:20

    Fisher, Barrett has money to make and a higher ceiling.

TheGreatBozza · 02/06/2017 at 17:57

Here are my trade out options:

Barrett, Fisher, Balic, Berry

Here are my trade in options:

Selwood, Bolton, Perryman, Schaz

I've got 2 more trades I can make this round, with 22 left in total. I'm thinking Balic > Schaz via DPP, Barrett > Selwood as I think Barrett may struggle with Rocky back

    TheGreatBozza · 02/06/2017 at 17:57

    Btw that's S Selwood

Yoyoyoyo · 02/06/2017 at 18:08

Hampton to Ryan this week?

Can still field 18 but a nineteenth and cutting some dead weight would be nice

Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 18:11

Danger or Jelwood for VC?

    Brad · 02/06/2017 at 18:20

    Very risky not to go danger. Would be interested in others thoughts though as Joel is a POD.

      pod · 02/06/2017 at 18:27

      I'm VC'n Joel and I have Danger, big risk, big reward..

    pod · 03/06/2017 at 08:30

    Jelwood pips Danger, Cat fan bonanza.

smote · 02/06/2017 at 18:11

Agree 100% with Patch re: thurs night football…hope its given the arse next year.
Don't pay the Perryman…until he gets you to the other side.
Good luck for Rd 11 SCers.

TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 18:49

I have decided to wait to get Pendles until after his bye. I am not happy about it though as I will be paying $35K more for him, but sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture. To snare Pendles now I would have had to either let JJK or Jack Steele go this week. I am still sceptical about JJK's prospects to come back for round 13, but I am prepared to sit it out for a few weeks to see what happens.

I think cutting Jack Steele lose now would be short sighted and foolish. (His DPP handy during the byes) He is not a player I consider PREMO just quite yet, and will probably go towards the back end of the season.

As such, I will try to save a trade this week. Just pulled the trade lever-

Harley Balic OUT and Hugh Greenwood IN.

Kurt Mutimer OUT and Scott Selwood IN.

That leaves me with 18 fit players on the field. With a bit of luck there will be no late outs from here so I can save that precious trade.

Danger captain down there at the cattery tonight!


    SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 19:02

    I am thinking the same about JJK, TH.
    I was really considering of moving him on as i wanted to bring Selwood in, but I also wanted to bring in Mummy. Could only bring both in if i traded JJK out, just like you i am prepared to wait and see the JJK situation.

      TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 19:14

      It just makes common sense to sit and wait a bit on JJK. I was hell set on getting Pendles earlier in the week, but it is going to just have to wait a little longer. My goal this round is to save that one trade. It will leave me with 16 trades which is more then I have had at this time in any of my previous seasons. And last year, I just ran out of steam right at the end of the season as I used my last trade with 2 rounds to play. This year I want to have one trade for the grand final.

      I went Scott Selwood. I have watched him play for West Coast for years and I reckon he is worth the punt. Class player. (Yes, I am a redneck from the West)

      Cheers mate.

Derek · 02/06/2017 at 18:52

I'll have 21 on field this week, but 11 of them are rookies (SPP already played).

love the bye rounds, it's like having 3 E Loopholes without the drama.

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 18:57

    Very very handy! Same cant be said for me. Just the 18 on field this week. Beggars cant be choosers as they say. You going Danger as captain tonight? Not taking Titch's VC score.

      Derek · 02/06/2017 at 19:13

      Danger C for me tonight.

      SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 19:53

      You won't believe it, who I got my VC on.

      With 35 possies, 6 tackles and 13 contested position last week. He's building his game nicely going under the radar. Everyone is more concentrating on Laird, Sloane, Betts, Selwoods and Danger.

        Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:00


        SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 22:28

        Selwood/Blicavs hate ya both. Crouch was tracking to hit 140, i was screaming my head off NOOOO!!! when they move on to Crouch halfway 3rd Qtr and continued to tag him on the 4th Qtr.

    Holty · 02/06/2017 at 18:58

    Hell Derek, that is impressive. I need to go bang bang bang to have 18.

      Derek · 02/06/2017 at 19:04

      getting rid of Preuss this week means Pickett is my only non playing rookie, but I've deliberately kept him as a swinger DPP.

      23 next week but only 20 for round 13.

        TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 19:06

        That is your best bet to make up ground. Play loads of rookies, make lot's of cash and then get the ultra premos. Come home like a runaway train at the end of the season.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 19:03

    11 rooks.

    Tipping at least half of them r round 13.

    but yeah love the byes do your thing best 18

      Derek · 02/06/2017 at 19:11

      Yep 11. McGrath, Stewart, Scharenberg, SPP, Myers, Greenwood, TT, Stewart, Butler, Parsons, Bolton.

      Need 8 good scores.

davo · 02/06/2017 at 19:02

Glad I held that one, just hope holding Kennedy works out as well, hate sideways trading.

Stupid Coach · 02/06/2017 at 19:07

Perryman or Scharenberg? Less than 60 mins to decide so I can trade out Hampton. Leaning towards Scharenberg as he is scoring better and likely​ to generate more cash quicker. Only worry is that he is injury prone.

    Pman · 02/06/2017 at 19:40

    Scharenberg, will score more and has better JS but that depends on him staying fit.

Derek · 02/06/2017 at 19:23

Why would Lsird be named on interchange in final teams? I heard rumours he was going to tag Selwood tonight. Are they messing with his role?

    Derek · 02/06/2017 at 19:23


    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 19:24

    I hope not

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 19:27

    Laird better bloody not turn into a tagger tonight. If he does and he tags Danger I will be absolutely filthy.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:36

    They'd be mad to do that cause the Cats will be hitting the goals hard tonight, trying to do it for Tommy's 200th.

      Billioux · 02/06/2017 at 19:39

      Just said same thing to the mrs re Laird Very odd he starting on the pine… Hope i am wrong but got odd feeling about Danger tonight with my C on him.

Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 19:23

Taranto and Balic to Bolton and Pendles or Selwood good trades for this week?

    Joshua · 02/06/2017 at 19:30


    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:35

    Pendles in is a ripper, don't know how long Bolton will play but at least he's a dpp so yep…any cash left over?

      Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 19:41

      No cash left over but 2 off full premo. I have no choice but to take Bolton since my round 13 is screwed and I will have to pass on Cousins. Every upcoming rookie is Round 13 except Bolton which isn't good news.

        Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:45

        2 off full premo is great mate…you could get lucky with Bolton, if he plays a few good games and keeps his spot/makes some cash. Needs a decent score against North this week.

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 20:58

    I didn't bring in Jelwood in the end. Don't let me down Pendles

johnno2908 · 02/06/2017 at 19:25

Worth trading Pickett down to Bolton? Makes $50k, and means I have 19 playing this week.

    Pman · 02/06/2017 at 19:43

    Pickett has to go and I'm doing the same trade this week.

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 19:45

    Pickett to Greenwood would be a great trade. Bolton comes with the same sort of JS issues Pickett had

BlueNath · 02/06/2017 at 19:25

I'm projected to get 1836 this week. Obviously, a lot can change. But curious what others are projected to get?

    Joshua · 02/06/2017 at 19:29


    redherringfc · 02/06/2017 at 19:38


    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:41

    Not so good for me this week…1640, much better for the next 2 weeks.

    INPieman · 02/06/2017 at 19:43

    F*ck all. I brought in a rookie that has never played

      SCdonkey · 02/06/2017 at 19:46

      Ryan I'm guessing or C Brown?

      Nvm about Brown he's on Emergency

      BlueNath · 02/06/2017 at 19:50

      Well I'm very nervous about my round 14 score already!

      Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:54

      I did the same with Scharenberg last week Pieman..turned out ok 🙂

L G · 02/06/2017 at 19:32

Can anyone convince me trade in Bolton? what are his chances of playing again ?

smart as s · 02/06/2017 at 19:38

swallow and roughy were my biggest mistakes, scooter will b even worst i imagine

    smart as s · 02/06/2017 at 19:41

    seeing how hawks played yesterday, cant hope for one last decent score for roughy.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 19:58

    If Swallow was your worst mistake, that's not too bad, Roughy's doing ok, was probably never a keeper but a stepping stone, at least he's a warm body. Scott Selwood's had one tackle…that's promising! lol

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:05

Tex has nearly beat his last week's score, happy days for Tex owners 🙂

    Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 20:14

    Thank god. His head was on the chopping block for next week so hopefully he better put in a better display.

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:07

Yeah 1 kick 1 handball 1 free for, 1 goal assist and 1 tackle so far.

Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 20:10

Laird better not be out….

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 20:11

    Not like this…

    Pman · 02/06/2017 at 20:13

    I hope not too as I lost Jake Lloyd with 4 points to his name and can't go through that again!

Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 20:18


    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:20

    Joel will probably be ok, he'll fake his way through the concussion test, what happened to Laird?…I missed that.

      Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 20:26

      He got tackled and had his head pushed into the ground. Both are back on the field though thank goodness. I was having a panic attack.

      JohndJames · 02/06/2017 at 20:28

      Was hurt in a tackle from Cockatoo.

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 20:26

    They are both back on

      Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 20:36

      Thank god

    wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 21:10

    From the Bendigo footballer factory.

Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 20:21

Cheers Parsons make sure you don't stop and end on 30 for the game

Ja191 · 02/06/2017 at 20:21

parsons having a career best first quater

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:22

Just a lazy 43 from VC Dangermouse…go fella!

TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 20:22

Statue Parsons awakens. Scooter never in doubt! Plenty of headgear required for Jelwood. Its all happening!

Doggy · 02/06/2017 at 20:27

Is fan footy down for anyone else? Any other sites for live SC scores?

    hedski · 02/06/2017 at 20:31

    Herald sun.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:50

    For the bargain price of only $20

    Jace · 02/06/2017 at 21:18

    Footing lite app gives live scores a lot better than fanfooty

      Jace · 02/06/2017 at 21:19

      Footylite app

hedski · 02/06/2017 at 20:30

Jeez I wish Bews was playing, he'd take Betts. Would let Tuohy run free.

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:33

Otten and Greenwood 14 points between them, oh dear.

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 20:37

    Greenwood will be dropped next week I called this one. 50% game time again

      Jim_bob321 · 02/06/2017 at 20:59

      What was that mate?
      7 tackles already!!!!

        Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 21:05

        He will still be dropped lmao. Also I don't want him to get dropped, I own him. Just saying what needs to be said.

          Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:19

          I reckon the Coach would be mad to stifle him now…who do you think would come in for him DM?

            Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 21:23

            Who knows but the coach clearly does not like him

              whatyousmokin · 02/06/2017 at 22:02

              Bench time has nothing to do with personally liking someone lol.

          Stanks21 · 02/06/2017 at 23:06

          He wont be dropped you idiot!

            Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 23:08

            Real intelligent mate. Showing the difference between us

              Stanks21 · 03/06/2017 at 00:33

              I follow adelaide! He will not be dropped. To many other players who played shit. So id say i am the more intelligent one.. obviously know more about footy than you do

                Defying_Madness · 03/06/2017 at 00:43

                I doubt that buddy. Had barely over 50% game time 2 weeks straight something isn't right

                  Derek · 03/06/2017 at 00:57

                  He plays in guts or he is off.

                    Daniel Z · 03/06/2017 at 06:36

                    Didn't watch the game but sounds like they're not rotating him through other positions. Coach probably said go in there, tear it up for 5 minutes and get off. More likely a match fitness issue as opposed to a 'coach doesn't like him' thing.

      whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:15

      Greenwood did plenty of good things and had more hunger than half the adelaide mob. Will hold his spot. I called this one.

    pod · 02/06/2017 at 21:04

    Greenwood 43 half time, chill pill required.

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:38

Hahah for sure, and Danger is officially Godzilla!

Billioux · 02/06/2017 at 20:54

I wish Ottens had rd 11 Bye.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 20:57

    What the hell ay?…may as well be Lloyd from last week

      Daniel Z · 03/06/2017 at 06:38

      Still hit his break-even…

      As long as he puts up around 60 in round 12, he won't lose cash.

pod · 02/06/2017 at 21:06

Tough and proud Cat leader, one of the best you'll ever see.

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:26

Did you tip em Hedski?…looking good so far.

    hedski · 02/06/2017 at 21:39

    I always tip my cats Rusty.

      Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:52

      I had Adelaide…and then came to my senses and realized it's the Cats at home and Tom's 200th. Cats looking good this year for finals.

DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 21:38

Crows have no club spirit let alone a leader on field to fire the team up.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:46

    Agree David, the Captain should always be a midfielder…Walker just doesn't get near it enough..and isn't even a great forward.

Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:43

Bloody Otten, gets 121 last week and has so far has 5 lousy disposals with 2 frees against for 17 points…needs to get booted next week.

    redgumwon · 02/06/2017 at 21:53

    Delivery into the Adelaide forward line hasn't been the best or a lot to help Otten or the other Crows forwards?

      Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:59

      BOOTED I tells ya

    Stanks21 · 03/06/2017 at 00:31

    I told everyone to get rid of him. No one listened…..

      Russty_ · 03/06/2017 at 03:02

      I was gonna, until he scored 121..earned a reprieve only to shaft us the next week.

      Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 09:17

      I traded him out in round 7 for pendles

TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 21:47

Parstute same as greenwood
There is a bit of life in the old boy yet

TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 21:53

Cats on fire!! Danger captain, Scott Selwood traded in today, Steward is rewarding my patience, and Parsons is turning from a statue to a player! Time to get happy! (aka pie eyed)

Captain Risky · 02/06/2017 at 21:54

Laird crapolla -but at least 79,000 others have him as well. Obviously his head ain't as hard as Selwoods.

    pod · 03/06/2017 at 08:26

    How brutal is Cockatoo when he tackles!?

      hedski · 03/06/2017 at 09:18

      Love it, he will be a player.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 02/06/2017 at 21:56

Said it once I'll say it again ….

Top Gun and his wingman!!!!!

There is not a better 1-2 combo around.
U magnificent basterds

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 21:58

    Glorious glorious Basterds lol

    Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 09:18

    Except my wingman. Lol

hedski · 02/06/2017 at 21:57

I reckon Stewart has been more influential than he's scoring, glad I picked Scooter over Wines +$190k.

    whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:12

    You'd be mad to pick wines regardless.

Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:01

I wonder if people still think Scooter is a trap? Maybe i should of gone Scooter instead of Pendles?
Either way, congrats to those who backed him in and selected him. If he stays fit, you will be loving the next month watching his value rocket through the roof.

    Russty_ · 02/06/2017 at 22:11

    Doesn't seem to be a trap, I reckon he'll average at least 80 easy, Getting Pendles in couldn't be a mistake Holty…if it was Pendles over Scooter, you got yourself a keeper…probably better to get both in hindsight but cest la vie.

    Pman · 02/06/2017 at 22:17

    He's a "trap" that I'm pretty happy I've traded in and may finish season as my M9 keeper.

      Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:36

      Good for you mate

        Eskimo · 02/06/2017 at 22:39

        Shit now what do I do scooter is my m9 got him for cash gen. But may have to kick fyfe or ablett

      Eskimo · 02/06/2017 at 22:42

      same 🙂 top stuff!

    Derek · 02/06/2017 at 22:41

    He was just too expensive for me. If I got him this week I wouldnt be able to get JPK and Docherty next week.

      Holty · 02/06/2017 at 23:02

      Same for me Derek. I wanted him b4 bolton and perryman but just wanted pendles more. 40k short so ended up going Bolton

        Derek · 02/06/2017 at 23:20

        $165k extra is a lot. Especially when the cats have a bye next week

          Derek · 03/06/2017 at 00:55

          cats play very well at home. Next game not until round 20

Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:10

Looks like Higgo got in Jocks head after the podcast. Just looked at jocks team and seems he didnt end up going Scooter. I guess even the great man himself misses the odd treasure that comes our way.

    DavidSA · 02/06/2017 at 22:26

    I think if you have trades up your sleeve he is a great option but honestly he can't and won't keep scoring 100+

      wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 22:34

      Newsflash David. No mid will score 100 every week. Danger has already had 2 below 100, Sloane and Pendle have had a few even gaz has farmed a potatoe or two this year

    Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 22:30

    Even if I could go back I still wouldn't bring him in

      Huckleberry · 02/06/2017 at 22:59

      What a silly comment unless you have a trigger finger and have less than 14 trades. I got him for cash and will trade him when he hits almost $500K. No one got him as a keeper.

        Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 23:06

        I will be full premo by the time he makes cash and I wanted Pendles. I would make the same trades again

        hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:00

        I have a bang bang finger, m9 will be Sweet for Scooter Huck.

        whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:11

        It's early days to be calling him a near 500K player.

          Dutch · 03/06/2017 at 08:53

          Agree, I got him too but will be trading him out when (if?) he hits $450k, don't think he'll get to $500k – my current plan is to keep Steele at F6 until then, then when trading Scooter out swing Steele to M9 and turn scooter into a fallen premo F6.

Ja191 · 02/06/2017 at 22:18

scooters been robbed

    Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:36

    Agreed. He not only shut Sloanes influence down but also gave him a absolute slaying.

Joshua · 02/06/2017 at 22:22

Stuff it, Scooter 100 + average and keeper, ok maybe I've had too many cold ones.

    Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:40

    Not sure about keeper. Was always going to be bought in to make you money which he will do. Becoming a keeper would just be a big bonus

    Oranga · 02/06/2017 at 22:55

    I have him too like many others. Will make a heap of dough over the next 5-6 weeks then trade out but DEFINATELY not a keeper.

    hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:09

    Can't have to many cold ones Josh

    manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:55

    If he is averaging 105+ in 5-6 weeks you would definitely consider keeping him! Cash would be first priority or a hop to a super premo but you can't fault the guy's scores so far. Better than Fyfe and Fyfe is keeper material still. Although Fyfe has higher scoring potential

BrownlowBoy · 02/06/2017 at 22:27

Love having Dangerwood in my team 🙂

wombatsfc · 02/06/2017 at 22:28

13 kicks 13 handballs 7 marks and 10 tackles 3-game ave of 105.3 and only 281k. Damn I fell into the ss elwood trap. Luckily I traded in his brother as well just in case this disaster happened

    Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:41

    Lol. Superb

    smart as s · 02/06/2017 at 23:44

    i remember swallow's first two games, brought him in, and now still struggling to release him, have to hold him through the byes now. One score under 70 in the next few weeks and scooter will be the biggest villain here.

      whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:09

      One score under 70 won't destroy him as a purchase.

      hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:11

      Not if you didn't start Swallow.

    hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:04

    Started Jelwood, Scelwood is a bonus this time of year.

TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 22:28

Scootaaa! I knew he would deliver! He is not that far behind his brother.

Iamme · 02/06/2017 at 22:33

just squeezed scooter in before dead line…but not enough time to press the (E) so lost 102 points

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/06/2017 at 22:36

    Ouch! At least you have him. He will make you plenty of cash. And more SC points not next week, but the week after!

      Iamme · 02/06/2017 at 22:49

      Yeah TOPHAWK1 that's the positive , and Dangers 3rd score of 150 plus in a row…total SC beast! Very disappointed with Ottens and Laird but Greenwood has served me well on field for 3 games now…So got to take the good with the bad.

        hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:05

        Didn't mind Laird spudding it up tonight.

          whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:08

          True, will lock him in when his price goes down.

            Daniel Z · 03/06/2017 at 06:42

            I had contemplated trading him in this round – disaster avoided!
            Kind of makes up for all the other disasters that I haven't avoided this year…

            hedski · 03/06/2017 at 09:24

            I have him already.

Holty · 02/06/2017 at 22:34

Happy with tonights game. Danger (vc) Jelwood Greenwood and even Parsons im happy with.

    manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:52

    Same! I have Stewart too who did well. Parsons I wish was making more though. Needs to knock out a couple 70+ scores to make some real cash

BingoBangoJingoJango · 02/06/2017 at 22:42

Best 2 to field out of Witts, Sandi and Grundy?

    Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 22:45

    Rough. If you held witts at R3 probably should have cut him before his bye. Field Sandi and Grundy, but look to turn witts into Strndca ASAP for a big cash injection.

      BingoBangoJingoJango · 02/06/2017 at 23:06

      Cheers mate! Thats the plan next week. Witts down to Strndca and then double upgrade

    whatyasmokin · 03/06/2017 at 00:07

    Mate, think it through. Both Wittts and grundy are averaging the same for the season.

    Will grundy score more vs sandilands than Witts vs Vardy/Petrie?

    My answer is no. Field Sandi and Witts. Maybe even trade Grundy out for Strndica………….

    hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:24

    Sandi vs Grundy?
    Sandi Witts

Jez · 02/06/2017 at 22:55

I only have a 17 man team but have 1 lucky last trade to field an 18.
Would you suggest I trade out JJK – Lynch or trade out Newmann for DEF.
Trade options for last spot welcome.

    Finnius123 · 02/06/2017 at 23:02

    Rest of your team?

    I would be holding both.

      Jez · 02/06/2017 at 23:26

      DEF: Adams, Shaw, Tuohy, Otten, Marchbank, Newmann (Berry, Hibberd)
      MED: Danger, Pendles, Fyfe, Merrett, Myers, Taranto, P-Pepper, S Selwood (JPK, Macrae, Beams)
      RUC: Sandi, Martin (Strnadica)
      FWD: JJK, Dahlhaus, Roughy, Parsons, Greenwood, Nank (Eddy, Buddy)

        hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:13

        Marchbank to Shaz or Ryan, pocket the change Jez.

          Jez · 03/06/2017 at 00:23

          Thanks for that. Would you hold JJK through the byes or go down to a T Lynch (an extra body right through the byes)
          FYI – I went Greenwood (R13 bye) and S Selwood (Rd 12 bye)

            hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:29

            If I had JJK I'd hold. Upgrade a rook to Lynch nek week if he scores good tomorrow.

              Jez · 03/06/2017 at 00:33

              Dilemmas. I like to wait for players to have their 3rd game.

Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 23:05

Yeah I am very happy I didn't get him

    Stanks21 · 02/06/2017 at 23:10

    Well good luck to you then. He will be making lots of money and if his body holds up will be an easy keeper…

      Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 23:12

      By the time he makes cash I will be full premo and bringing him in for cover over taking in Pendles. No thanks

        Stanks21 · 02/06/2017 at 23:17

        Already have pendles and a near full premo team. Only rookie is greenwood

          Derek · 02/06/2017 at 23:23

          Only rookie is Greenwood! How are you going to make cash?

            Defying_Madness · 02/06/2017 at 23:24

            I don't think he thought this one through Derek

            Stanks21 · 02/06/2017 at 23:26

            Only rookie on field you idiots! Plenty on the bench making money

              Billioux · 02/06/2017 at 23:33

              No scooter for me and like D Mad would make same trades again. No good comes from 280k injury prone players, he will struggle anywhere north or west of Norlane. I happy i went with B Ebert and good luck to the S.Sellwood holders

                smart as s · 02/06/2017 at 23:54

                totally agree, learnt from swallows first 2 rounds aver of 102'. Would have greenwood and the cash over scooter everyday.

                hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:16

                Bargain of the year.

            hedski · 03/06/2017 at 00:21

            Why make cash if your Premo Derek? (I'm not)

              Stanks21 · 03/06/2017 at 00:23

              Totally agree!

                Billioux · 03/06/2017 at 00:34

                Game of opinions lads.. Bargain of the year? I think not.

                  Derek · 03/06/2017 at 00:48

                  Cats don't play at Cattery until round 20

                    Dutch · 03/06/2017 at 08:47

                    They have another home game against Fremantle in R14, then not until R20 …. but also again R21 and R23, so from a Supercoach finals perspective very attractive!
                    (I'm referring to the Geelong team in general, not just Scooter)

              Derek · 03/06/2017 at 00:47

              He is only 'near' premium

            manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:50

            I think he means only rookie is Greenwood of on field players. If 29 are premo with exception of Greenwood you can start managing my team and I will pay you $50 a week! 😛

          Emmanuel · 03/06/2017 at 01:25

          If you don't mind me asking, how many trades do you have left? Have you had to correct anyone? I have had a decent year with cash gen and players staying fit etc and I am nowhere near full premo. Maybe I am not trading aggressive enough.

Murray · 02/06/2017 at 23:09

Have two trades to make and think I need them as have 17 on field, opp has 18 and don't want Ottens score of 36. I was thinking of two options
1 newman and Barrett for dusty martin and scharenberg OR,
2 newman and hibberd/ mountford for Steele Sidebottom and scharenberg
Comes down to the best premo for 570k for Martin or 470k for Sidebottom
What does community think and why. Comments appreciated

    Murray · 02/06/2017 at 23:16

    Martin is better for me from a bye perspective, but is he worth the 100k more than Sidey

    Murray · 02/06/2017 at 23:38

    Actually for option 2 my IN is Ryan, not scharenberg

    manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:49

    Can you take out anyone else? Newman and Barrett you could potentially keep.

    If not I think Martin will score more.

    Ryan I would wait a week and see how he goes. Js at the Dockers is not the greatest especially with Ross Lyon's history

Dom · 02/06/2017 at 23:37

Hey guys, im new to supercoach but i have 20 players on the field, so during these bye rounds, if i score say 1900 from 20 players, ill lose 2 scores right? Meaning that if i have 2 players who score 50, my final score will be 1800? Thanks.

    Billioux · 02/06/2017 at 23:42

    Correct. In your case, lucky you, your 2 lowest scores are out.

    manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:46

    Only top 18 scores count

    Russty_ · 03/06/2017 at 02:50

    The worst thing is, you can score 100 or more than your opponent…and still lose to them lol

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/06/2017 at 10:29

    1800 reckon most teams would take that with a number of rookies playing on ground

manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:44

Hey all, just wondering what your thoughts are.

Who are the best players to bring in after this round from the teams with byes this week?

I don't see much value next week to be honest.

    Whitey · 03/06/2017 at 07:47

    Im looking at JPK and Roo. Roo has had two weeks off and now hope his knee is going to be better.

manolaki · 03/06/2017 at 01:46

I was seriously debating it but in the end i brought in both SSelwood and Greenwood. Good trading for once!

    Stanks21 · 03/06/2017 at 16:29

    Good Trades mate. Both will make good money

INPieman · 03/06/2017 at 06:36

Andy Otten! You have a date with the RAGE trade button

Stupid Coach · 03/06/2017 at 07:13

Harbrow or Adams for Marchbank. Harbrow works better for the byes, is scoring ok (except for last week) and is cheap while Adams is scoring more, a DPP but not as good for the byes. Also, is it worth trading Fisher to Bolton (bye next week) or wait to see who is available next week.
Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.

    INPieman · 03/06/2017 at 07:16

    Adams by the length of the Flemington straight

      Dutch · 03/06/2017 at 08:39

      Agree, Adams easily

      Dutch · 03/06/2017 at 08:41

      Fisher to Bolton is not so straight forward. I'm considering the same myself, bot solely for cash generation and the added bonus of Bolton's dp – the trade off being that Bolton's js looks a lot shakier than Fisher's

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/06/2017 at 09:01

    Adams. No brainer

    neil Demons Delight · 03/06/2017 at 10:02

    crazy Adams is so far in front Waste of a trade for Fisher both are not worth it if Butler fires goodbye Bolton he is a trap

pod · 03/06/2017 at 08:38

Looking better after 3 shiite losses, wish they had more home games. Go Cats.

Pitch 72 · 03/06/2017 at 08:43

Got his brother instead. Yeah baby…

Top Gun · 03/06/2017 at 09:25

You're. Lol

neil Demons Delight · 03/06/2017 at 09:59

Lucky I kept Scooter need a bit of luck in this game. Scharenberg really looks the goods if he is over his injuries

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/06/2017 at 10:26

    Will give him another game and grab him next week if he doesn't break down and on the bubble.
    Will mean will only get one game b4 his bye but gotta grab the good rooks when they appear.
    Rd 13 looking all kinds of ugly.

    Derek · 03/06/2017 at 11:41

    We only have 6 different players this week. SSelwood was an excellent choice.

      neil Demons Delight · 03/06/2017 at 12:05

      goes back to the start Derek we only had about the same then but you being a hawk and me a demon came down to oliver and Cyril sorry to rub it in .Mighty eels had a good win like the dees could make finals what a coach Brad Arthur is reminds me of Swooper players did anything for Northey maybe Clarkson is getting stale Something wrong with Gunstone and a few have gone backwards cheers

yellownblack · 03/06/2017 at 10:33

hey guys,

After everything that has gone wrong to my super coach team this year i need to check if i can put the C on a bye player to get dangers VC score?

thanks in advance

    Derek · 03/06/2017 at 11:38


    Simo · 03/06/2017 at 12:28

    Yes. Captain a bye player and get dangers score as vc.

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 03/06/2017 at 11:25

VC Danger, glad I got the scooter too. Having the Dangerwood's is mad

neil Demons Delight · 03/06/2017 at 13:30

thinking of Wallis next week for either Parsons doesn't do much really or Pickett worse but has that DPP AND with greenwood and Pickett could be valuable Wish I had the coin for Pendles but Wallis is it maybe Scooter can become Bont

Glorious · 03/06/2017 at 13:42

Scooter to come a Bont? That's hilarious but I am glad I have him to fatten up for the one and only Bont.

    neil Demons Delight · 03/06/2017 at 14:33

    that's what I mean g scooter plus cash = downgraded Bont in few weeks maybe even better value than pendles Not a big wrap up for Scoot sandi witts or nank but they proved me wrong this year cheers

      Glorious · 03/06/2017 at 15:00

      Neil, you also mentioned Wallis. Macrae is only about $50K more than him and I have the week to think about the trade at a time when money like always? is paramount. Love Wallis's first two games back but also mindful of Libatore's absence. Worried that Libba's return will impact on Wallis's output. Also Parsons keeps getting a game in a very good Cat team. Can't believe it. Who might take his place if I don't trade Parsons next week?
      What are your thoughts.

Mitch · 03/06/2017 at 13:47

Any rookie forwards coming up ??

Want to get rid of eddy but Bolton seems like a trap. Already have greenwood
Possible dual position status too

JohndJames · 03/06/2017 at 15:03

Wow all this rage over one player.
