Pendlebury or Mitchell as captain?

undypuncher

Mitchelli vince going to pendles

SCdonkey

Titch for safer option. Pendlebury for higher ceiling, the guy can handle a tag. Vince will probably tag Trealor or Adams easy target to get in under their skin.

goodo73

Titch into Pendles

Choice

Docherty worth the 2 trades to get him in? or just go with Hibberd for 1 trade. Got 12 at the moment.

And go ABLETT!!!

INPieman

If your playing someone with Doch in the second half of the season & you don't have him you will shit your pants. Get him in

Derek

I still don't have him. I haven't been sleeping well

INPieman

Doch or Valium Derek. I'll have both

Holty

Agree with pieman

FCAbel

Just got doc in. Fels amazing

Tommo09

Lock the Doch
Have to have him
In next week for me

Tommo09

Thinking maybe Newman, Steele and Myers to Buddy/Macrae, Doch and a rookie
Any on the bubble rookies playing in R13?
If not then I may just trade him to a 102k rookie
Thoughts?

Wedge

If you have trades for this rnd go Myers to cousins. Do the other two next week

Tommo09

Already traded Barrett to Cousins

Wedge

Only ainsworth and ainsworth ain't worth it I reckon. Hold till next week and hope another rookie gets named or jump on brown from Collingwood early if he plays alright

Dylan

I've gone real risky Dixon vice captain and Jeremy Cameron captain

INPieman

What a cracking sets of balls you've got Dylan. Could be genius & could leave you in the foetal position

Rick Grimes

That's the definition of balls out supercoaching. Good man.

Derek

I'm impressed you have them at all

Cogla13

Guess you won't be taking Dixons score.

Jason

Guess you have to take Cameron's score.

Deeb

Sloane spudded, Rockliff C. Unless Docherty/Treloar are better options?

FCAbel

Rockliff

nankthetank

I've gone Rockliff and have soiled three pairs of undies so far

Rabbits16

sloanes being a knob jockey ay

Rabbits16

im captaining docherty

Slatsy

Hanners spudded as VC, tossing up between Doc, Beams or Treloar as C. Currently on Doc. Thoughts?

INPieman

I'd be a bit concerned about Vince tracking Treloar. Doch will be busy against the Giants

ProTravo

Agree with Pieman on Treloar. Think he will cop the tag over Pendles.

FCAbel

Not treloar. Id go.beams

Cr0magn0n

Hey community, Can anyone shed some light as to why Jack Steele only had 64% TOG last night? You'd think he'd be fresh coming off the bye? Not conducive to good SC scoring :' (

Tommo09

I agree
Needs a bigger tank
Although, that just might be his rotation in the midfield

INPieman

You can see why the Giants moved him on. You couldn't have Sheila & Steele sitting on the pine all day

Cr0magn0n

According to http://www.afl.com.au Steele's average TOG this year is 73.1% so it's a bit of a drop off on his normal game time.

Grant Lewis

If my captains score is lower than my top 18 scores prior to it being doubled (yes I took Sloane after Hanners teased with a 101 and clearly Sloane can't handle a tag!), do I get m vc score doubled or is there a disclaimer in relation to the captains score?

Derek

You get the VC as your captain score and Sloane won't count

Might have to bench a few of your rookies to make that happen

Defying_Madness

You dont get the VC score as your captain

ProTravo

I think you'll still get the selected captains score mate

SCdonkey

From my understanding with C it gets doubled. Sloane scored 66=132 points, which means every other players you have, has to score over 132 in order to get your VC score.

Wedge

Your captain took the field and scored points. Doesn't matter what you do that is locked in. It's not possible for the vc to become the C now.

SCdonkey

Its best 18 scoring players during bye rounds. If you're fielding 19 players. One player with lowest score cancels out as not playing. But in this case Sloane score 132, so it will count to your teams total score.

Wedge

Even if Sloane scored 3, with the C that's 6, and you had 22 available players we can easily assume Sloane wouldn't make the final 22. But the captaincy hat still wouldn't then pass over to your vc. Once your capt takes the field sc locks it in. It's irreversible then.

SCdonkey

Which part don't you understand. Lowest score cancels out as a non playing player. If Sloane only scored 6, he'll automatically considered as a non player(0 point) like you would use Strnadica for Capitan loophole.

Wedge

Set a Captain (and Vice Captain) as you normally would for double points. If your Captain's doubled score is NOT in your Best 18 scores, then their points will not count – you simply get your Best 18 scores only. Similarly, if your Captain's doubled-score is NOT in your Best 18 scores, you do NOT automatically receive double points from your Vice Captain – your Vice Captain only receives double points as per any other round, if your Captain does not play for any reason.

Wedge

This is from the herald sun FAQ on bye rnd. The vc will not become c.

whatyasmokin

Thanks Wedge.

Cogla13

Read the rules mate, Wedge is correct. The captain played so no VC. If the C doubled is not in the best 18 it drops out and you have no captain.

T-Bone

Yeah but when you loophole, your vc plays first. You don't get a free hit at the c and then fall back on the vc if your captain duds it up. You take your vc's score and then change your c to a non playing player.

AFL Bluffer

I'm an unhappy camper this week. Had the VC on Hanners and chose not to use it. Left the big C on Sloane and got burnt for the first time in living memory. Oh well. At least I have 21 players on the park.

Derek

I feel your pain. Had the C on Eddy earlier this year and he just didn't have a good game.

The week after I had C on Gawn when he did his knee.

Danger, Selwood or Pendles are my only C options.

ProTravo

I've gone Rocky (VC) into J.Kelly (C)
Can't go wrong.

Finnius123

Don't speak too soon

Guru

Is Rockliff worth trading in this week? Obviously a risk with his shoulder and injury history but the blokes a gun. Or should I play it safer and go Zorko?

dSaSPatSfcB

Your On a winner picking either. Your Nads stay at regular size with Zorko which is what I've done this week, but they grow a bit bigger if you pick Rocky.

Seeker

I went Rocky.

In 2016 after coming back from a 2nd injury stint he scored ten 100 games out of the remaining 12 and the first game back after that injury was a 204 vs Carlton.

2015 was slightly different he go injured the week before the bye and was out 3 extra weeks but played every game from Round 15 with 8 of the 9 games being 100+ games, too.

Guru

Thanks fellas!
I think it's time to show some testicular fortitude and get the great man in.

Tommo09

Will be getting him in when S.Selwood peaks in price

SCdonkey

Not much love for Fyfe as VC/C option. Past 11 games he's only drop twice sub 80, 3 times just below 100 and 6 times 100+. He's due for a massive score, playing against the Lion today and a bye next week. I really think he'll go huge today.

Ash

T Lynch or Docherty for VC option?

Guru

I'd go Lynch. Due for a big bag and a huge score. That's what the VC loopholes for. Have a crack!

Wedge

Lynch because I was going to pick him up this week but grabbed doc instead. I always get burnt so my burn can be your joy

Tommo09

Like Lynch
Would have gone him for C but didn't trust him if Mitchell failed

Andy

Hey guys, should i buy Pendles this week or next week get J Selwood?

Finnius123

pendles has a bye next week so I would hold off and pick up Joel

Daniel

Out of Ainsworth, Cousins and Sharenberg. Who would be the number 1 priority to get in this week?

skdo

Cousins named in midfield and is rookie priced

MassiveD

Cousins got a 40. Complete dud. Glad I didn't get him

Steeeve

I copped a lot of heat for admitting I traded Laird out for Doc. So let me explain.
I need Doc. Everyone does. It was going to require two trades to get him in for Marchbank. Then I'd be munching donuts next round.
Laird had a 160+ break-even. I can bring him back after his bye at a slight discount. And since he'll be $60-$70K cheaper than Doc I can go straight from Marchbank.
In both cases I use just two trades. But Laird out means I have 18 next week.
Bad move? Well it's easy to say that especially after Laird's big night. But I'm doing well in the rankings and don't want to fall behind next week. How many of the people calling me an idiot will field 18 next round?
Let's not forget a past winner traded out Ablett Jr at the peak of his powers when he wasn't injured. There are many ways to skin a cat.

INPieman

If you've traded wisely & have plenty of trades up your sleeve then that's a solid plan. If your low on trades then those sorts of moves could bite you

SCdonkey

The thing is you've traded out Laird who will likely be top 3 defender for another top 3 defender who cost more. Laird might drop 50K but a trade is worth 100K and trade is precious.

The past winner who traded out Ablett, he had the luxury of trades up his sleeves. He traded Ablett as he had his bye for a fallen premo and pocketed juicy cash in the bank to bring back Ablett with only 1 trade plus the cash he saved from Ablett. He did that trade and not have to worry of Ablett pumping 150+.

Steeeve

I see similarities. He still needed two trades, one out one in. I miss one game of Laird as he will return straight after the bye. Unfortunately it was a massive score I missed. It's still only two trades.
Other difference is I'm not making money. Doc is pricey. However it will help me during the round 13 bye. I might regret it but it's better to swing for the fences and fail than play it safe and finish 15,000th

whatyasmokin

Exactly, you're not making anything. And yes I'm fielding 19-20 next week. 21 this week.

Moustachio

A lot of people ranked decently burn trades like this to stay there. Then the winner will come majestically from slightly further back in the pack and laugh at you with their non panicked optimal trade use.

Steeeve

I have no doubt plenty of people will surpass me but for now I have a shot and would rather take it. It's two trades either way to bring Doc in. This way I have 18 next week.
Same amount of trades used.

randomcliche

I don't mind it…its kinda 'Pimp my ride' stuff, which I don't mind….18 on the park is important I reckon.

Wedge

Need to open up a swing option for nank in the ruck. Gonna standica. But is it worth paying extra for buzza. Can anyone see him getting a few games with the cats pushing for top 2?

Finnius123

buzza??

Wedge

Wylie Buzza. He's real

Russty_

A Cousin of Wylie Coyote

bUCKET__

14 trades left, should I go Balic > Cousins?

Not much of a cash grab but I'm hesitant to go early on any of the other mid rookies I've got.

Balic would probably need a spell in the 2s for a few weeks when he comes back to WA, so not sure why I'm so hesitant. Doubt we'll see him again this year. Few players I'd like to upgrade so trades will be important (Shaw, Newman, Fyfe, Scooter, Steele…), but so is cash I guess

Cheers all

doc

when do the bye players get locked?

Wedge

The moment the opening bounce happens in the last game. Monday

Johnno

C on Pendles or Rocky?

Finnius123

rocky

Stirlsy

Ah them SuperCoach Gods had to get me sooner or later, 120 was the worst id taken all year till last nights 6 f%@#$K!Ng 6 from Sloane …. I should of stuck with the Man Pendles….

hedski

Hodge and Touk Touk both late outs, Lynch looking even better now that the hawks have lost their defensive general.

Defying_Madness

Mitchell getting robbed the 1 week I put him captain

Russty_

Hope he has a big second half for ya..that goal helped a bit.

Defying_Madness

Yeah he has 20 less supercoach points compared to his dreamteam somehow. Lets hope he goes big thanks mate

whatyasmokin

Bugger all contested, all handballs. Average efficiency, No 1%'s. Barely any tackles.

Russty_

Gazza 57 after 1 quarter, might have to get him next week…little bald legend.

Russty_

aaand does bugger all in the second quarter, i'll shut up now before I jinx him any further.

Northerner

Still ended up with 19pts for the quarter thanks to about 6 posies in the last 3 min.

Russty_

Not a big loss there, Fyfe's been just ok but ok might not be good enough at finals time.

Northerner

Captaincy. Would have been better with Ablett's half time score over what Sloane produced. Should have known better. Saw the wet all week in a Sydney and expected JPK to dominate and used the VC. Should have taken it.

Northerner

Ditto. Hurts.

Holty

Last minute trade. Was holding barrett for one more week for cash generation but decided to go lynch 1min before bounce. Although happy so far, did also trade parsons to Ainsworth as i feel he is a gun. Hasnt done much so far but is just coming back from injury i guess

Defying_Madness

What the hell is this umpiring

Finnius123

Gaz is an absolute champion. On track for 150 at this stage.

The Ranger

Got the C on him….yippee!

Russty_

Nice job Ranger…I wonder how many will be thinking of going Sloane to Ablett next week?

whatyasmokin

Could leave major burns that trade. Season defining scars.

Russty_

Yeah I guess it doesn't matter if they tag him and waste 2 players doing it like the pathetic Saints did, and they win anyway.

If he starts copping a tag every week though, he'll be the burnman for coaches who own him.

Northerner

Very much enjoying Pav's commentary. First year in the caper and he's clear and insightful.

Russty_

Yeah I agree Northerner, seems very Footy savvy and has a good voice for it, not sure about Nick Dalsanto though lol

The BONT

Do we take T.Mitchells score he way he is going

Defying_Madness

Should push around 110-120

Russty_

He's had 33 disposals, must've been butchering it.

Defying_Madness

Has been very influential IMO should be a lot higher

Russty_

On 92 now, he needs to get a goal for ya DM, get that total up to 120-130.

The BONT

Go with cousins score or gamble on Barrett

JohndJames

Barrett

Russty_

Unless he scores another 30+ in the next 15 minutes BONT, I'd go with Barrett.

Grant Lewis

Thanks for the input appreciate it.

Russty_

Go Hawks!…it'd be good to have at least one close game this week!

Defying_Madness

This is what I wanted to see this year as a Hawks fan. Even if we lose we are taking the game on which is what I wanted to see

Russty_

Jeez Brand really screwed you then…gave away the 50 and he missed the goal initially.

Defying_Madness

Yeah looking like we lost but oh well

whatyasmokin

They were ultra risky picks considering Sloane's scores recently.

Rivo

Yep, Sloane into Pendles would have been a much better option, but then Pendles was ordianary too.

Holty

Amazing how influencial ablett is. He comes off for 10min and Hawks get back into the match. Comes back on and he steadies the entire side down.

Russty_

I wonder what will happen to the Gold Coast if he goes back to Geelong next year…..wooden spoon?

Holty

Good chance

Tyruddanaut

Bloody hell Roughy! C'mon I was hoping you would get a decent score this week against an easier side and out of the 12 goals your team has scored, even as FF, you can't kick one. Goodbye either next week or the week after because I can't do this anymore

Richard

hawthorn players irrelevant apart from T.M & B.Mc

whatyasmokin

fair enough.

The BONT

Do I take the score of 111 from Titch

nankthetank

Who would you put if you dont?

The BONT

Do I take the score of 111 from Titch or go with DOC

Richard

take a punt on doc 111 unders

whatyasmokin

Take Titch's score.

TOPHAWK1

Titch 111 as captain pre scaling. Hopefully squeeze a few extra points out of him. 117 would be nice. I will take his 230 as captain. Job done.

DavidSA

This round any vc score of 110+ should be concidered with so many top end players out this bye

Eric

Thank you gazza for the 147×2! What a champion

Tyruddanaut

I have 2 days to decide whether to pick Titch as captain (111) or take Oliver's score. Not long enough

garfield_da_cat

take olivers score trust me he will go big!

Noirlust

Im rolling the dice on oliver.
Hopefully he has a blinder

bdog

i
have 12 trades left can downgrade Pruess to Stradinca then go Myers to Doc this week or should i wait a week to do the same Trade im thinking Myers will score over his b/e and Doc wont reach 128 but want to score as many as possible for my rank

whatyasmokin

For rank then trade.

Wedge

I'm thinking doc will reach 128

Finnius123

Rather than responding to all of the Titch comments I am just going to give my opinion here – take the 111. Anything over 110 is good, and with no dangerfield perma-captain this round and the huge speculation about who to pick anyways I would definitely be taking it.

Holty

Well said and agree

Defying_Madness

Ended on 113. Very solid score, I think you have to take it with Danger out

whatyasmokin

Witts a keeper for sure. May even have to trade Goldy to Gawn if Maxy looks a must have later.

DavidSA

Wits amazing lone ruck

Will have to factor him in if I need to replace Steff in future

Defying_Madness

He is only getting better each week also. Pretty consistent

Russty_

Yeah I'm keeping him, not many more reliable options really.

bdog

Done just pulled it then 40k in the bank for next week looking for a forward rookie downgrade then to go stewart to lloyd the following week

The BONT

Do you get the VC score if you put the C on someone with the Bye (Nank)

whatyasmokin

Yep

Billioux

Titch gets 100 then no 120 then yes. What to do with 111? Zac,Doc or Ebert are options.

Russty_

113…I'd probably take that to be safe.

Billioux

Yep Russty. You and Finnius sold me, there is always another Sloane around the corner. 113 + 113 + say 140 = 366. 140+ 140 + 113 = 393.. Safe better.

Russty_

Hope it works out for you Billi

Defying_Madness

I really regret trading out Beams. Might even consider bringing him in very cheap and the bye has only helped him
