I’M GOING DOWN WITH THE SHIP.

There’s only one way Nathaniel Fyfe will turn his form around in 2018, and that’s if some poor bastard takes one for the team trades him out.

I look out at you all, bright eyed and bushy tailed, still with spring in your step and hope glinting in your eyes. I can see the corner of your lips creeping up, relishing the calculations, who to bring in and when to cull the few remaining cows.

All of that is gone for me. Worn down by wave after wave of injury, suspension, poor rookie selections and even worse premium ones (I’ll never live down trading Tex Walker in at 480k and then Jarrod Hardbrow for bye support).

My season will die so yours can live – for at 7.40pm on Thursday night, when teams are finally locked out – SuperCoach HQ will send that fateful text to Nathaniel Fyfe: “Patch has traded you out – start tearing the competition to shreds.”

And you know who I traded him for? Scott. Bloody. Selwood.

THE NEWS

Literally every player in Supercoach has the bye this week. Some of us down to 13 players, and with guys like JJK, Harbrow and Ed Vickers-Willis missing. When it rain, it pours, and it’s well and truly raining for some this week.

PanicRd13Image1

Jack Steele has been dropped by the Saints, in the big news of the round. I have to say I’m puzzled, and feel there must be more to this story than what’s floating around. Nick Riewoldt is back, however, which is provided much-needed relief to my flailing side. Still no Nathan Freeman, either. For any poor sod still holding onto Declan Mountford, he’s rewarded you – he is back for the injured Ed Vickers-Willis, who is out for 6-8 weeks and will need to be traded. For the love of god, however, do not bring Mountford in if you need a downgrade option. Former rookies Dan Houston and Sam Petrovski-Seton are back this week, but I mean if you’ve got them, you’ve probably forgotten to check your team for a few weeks.

There are also rumours swirling from the Herald Sun that Dustin Martin is in some doubt for the weekend’s game against Sydney, but I’m not sold on that news. Jake Carlisle is in more serious doubt for the Saints, with some suggesting father-son rookie Bailey Rice may debut. He’s a 123k defender who had glandular fever and a broken finger interrupting his 2017.

JOCK REVEALS SOME SECRETS TO POST-BYE SUCCESS HERE

THE PATCH UP

The question of the week is surrounding the trading of Nathaniel Fyfe. I’m going to get it a million times in the comments, so I’m going to answer it here: Should we trade Fyfe? No. No we should absolutely not. “But Patch, you traded him! Why can’t we?” I hear you ask. First off, following my lead this season is a bad idea. I have hardly made a good trade this year. Because of this, my rank is appalling, so I traded Fyfe out intending to set up several shark moves in the coming weeks. Safe to say due to Scooter Selwood’s injury, this plan has gone very tits-up, but nonetheless, I was making a low percentage play as a last roll of the dice. Trading Fyfe is not a safe move. The fact Freo have revealed he’s battling rib problems indicated Fyfe is likely over the issue – announcing it will only lead to players elbowing him in the ribs more. So between that and his bye, Fyfe will return to form. Maybe not the form of 2015, but something resembling form. I took a gamble that he won’t, despite me suspecting he will. So my advice is to hold, but I’m not going to tut-tut if you move him on.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Last week’s plan was to pick a side – in this case, Collingwood – and hope they ran over the top of their opponents. Instead, we saw a 4-point margin tearing my plan to shreds. However, the winning side Popette had a 6-3 split of Collingwood to Melbourne players, so maybe I had the right idea, just the wrong players.

PanicRd13Image2

Higgo was talking about the contrarian strategy in his marvellous article yesterday, and I’ve tried to apply some of that to my selections for this week. I think it’ll be a close contest, and while I reckon Melbourne will get up, I’m not going to stack my side one way or the other.

PanicRd13Image3

I’m hoping enough of these gentlemen provide a nice point of difference to roost me up the rankings, while I’m taking a punt Jake Stringer will have a big game at value price – he’ll be a popular pick, but if he goes big and I miss out, I’m no hope. Ditto Nath Jones, who’s been a standout performer over the past month and is this match’s Dangerfield – you can’t not have him.

EVERYTHING’S DIGGING UP MILHOUSE

Pretty much all the relevant rookies this week are having their bye, which hurts us.

Everything’s coming up Milhouse

-55 – Luke Ryan
-45 – Jono Beech
-13 – Declan Mountford
-9 Scott Selwood
-8 – David Cunningham
-2 – Jake Spencer
1 – Hugh Greenwood
3 – Matt Scharenberg
3 – James Stewart
4 – Shai Bolton
5 – Ben Ainsworth
9 – Brennan Cox
11 – Tom Stewart

In the same vein, there aren’t a huge amount of high breakevens this week to keep an eye on, but the obvious one to watch here is Jake Lloyd. If we see a score under 80, we’ll see Lloyd under 400k, which is very, very tasty.

DIG UP, STUPID

162 – Jake Lloyd
147 – Paddy Cripps
145 – Tom McDonald
142 – Marc Murphy
138 – Dan Hannebury
136 – Jason Johannisen
133 – Alex Rance

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

Hopefully everyone had the VC on Paddy Dangerfield last night and have taken his 140 points right to the bank. If you didn’t, I’m not sure how you’ve buggered that one up. Especially as we’ve got so few options for the rest of the round. The Bont has been in shocking form, but is still predicted to hit 112, which he did last time he played the Dees. However, his record against them isn’t great.

I feel like we haven’t seen enough form from Josh P. Kennedy to back him in as captain this week, even though his stats against Richmond are very good historically. I’d look to the Bald Genius Gary Ablett if you have him, and Matty Kreuzer or Sam Docherty if you need a sneaky POD.

I pray you all have a better weekend than I know I’ll have, but that bar is so low it might as well be hoping you have your worst Supercoach weekend of the year – so have a great weekend and let’s send these f^@&ing byes off with a bang!

See you in the comments, community!

As much as I have hated dealing with and planning for the bye rounds, thanks to the information from this glorious community I'm now sitting just outside the top 1000 and looking good for the run home.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:19

    You beauty Pro! Go get em, son!

INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 09:33

I think my Scooter crashed

    hedski · 16/06/2017 at 10:06

    Hoping like hell he will be my 19th man Pie.

      INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 10:09

      Yeah. Thank god I've got Parsons

        hedski · 16/06/2017 at 11:18

        Ha ha, wouldn't say that to often!
        Chopped the Parsnip for Lynch last week.

          INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 11:38

          My young bloke also chopped parsnip for lynch last week. He was happy with the ton

    Liam · 16/06/2017 at 14:01

    I'm playing you in Trig's league Pie, was happy to see Scooter go down from a SC perspective. Maybe I'm half a chance against you if things go my way.

      INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 14:15

      The timing was far from ideal Liam. It's hurt me in most leagues! I thought everyone had scooter. Not the case

    Sana · 16/06/2017 at 15:55

    The gods dangled carrot…many had a nibble

Pete · 16/06/2017 at 09:34

if it makes you feel any better patch , I forgot to put danger n Stewart on the field this week n what's worse , I forgot to set an emergency , DOH …

    Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 10:36

    Oh lordy lordy. That would hurt like a hard kick to the balls.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:20

    Oh dear. This is bad. This is quite very not good.

    But it does make me feel better, yes 😛

    JRod · 16/06/2017 at 12:39

    Your not the only one Pete. I did the same thing.
    My only saving grace is its a league comp and I am 6 scoring players up before trades.

CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 09:43

Disappointing to see Scott Selwood go down with an injury…I'm looking forward to the various versions of "I told you so!" that will appear today!

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 09:58

    The keyboard warriors will be out in force today

      Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 10:38

      To be fair, there was a bit of smugness from Scooter owners after his third ton. But I'm not one to kick a man when he's down. Besides, we all have a few trade skeletons I'm out closet by now.

        CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 10:40

        One can never be smug in Supercoach. Too many unknowns. No one can predict what a player will do. Fyfe could average 85 for the rest of the season, or a good rest could see him averaging 115 for the rest of the year, who knows!

        Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:21

        I can no longer shut that particular closet

    Keebored Wazza · 16/06/2017 at 11:29

    For a $280k rook I cant complain . I've picked worse who made no cash, didn't score or hardly played. May get a $100k cash grab from him + 3 x 100 pts. Thats is he doesn't get up and about in a couple of weeks. If he comes back even better.

      smart as s · 16/06/2017 at 13:08

      u didnt get 3 x 100 with scooter, come on

      smart as s · 16/06/2017 at 13:21

      i hope he comes back next week and save you all a trade 🙂

      Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:50

      There is no way you bought in Scooter before he played a round. You probably got 145 points over two weeks, and wasted a trade, possibly two if you have to move him on. Why try to convince yourself it was a good move? Shit happens.

    redherringfc · 16/06/2017 at 19:37

    "minor hamstring" any guesses (or news)? He's staying in my team at M9 unless he isn't playing first sc finals round.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:44

      We might not know how bad it is until Monday unfortunately Herring

    Brian · 16/06/2017 at 19:52

    haha told you so, you wasted 2 trades dont forget.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:10

      Ok, thanks for that Brian, I'll try not to forget, almost did..but then you posted.

      Daniel Z · 17/06/2017 at 12:29

      Hey Brian, please post your trades for the year so we can see if you've wasted any. Muppet.

BrownlowBoy · 16/06/2017 at 09:45

Thoughts on Joel Selwood incident? Weeks or not?

    ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 09:49

    I think it deserves one, but considering it's not something we usually see who knows what the MRP will come up with.

    CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 09:56

    Interesting one – it will come down to intent. From one angle it looks accidental but from another more deliberate. My guess is that he'll get off – they'll argue it was high in the back and minor, low impact contact to the head and he'll get a fine.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 09:56

    Can't find any decent vision of it. And I'm not sure if it was Jelwood or Mitchell that got reported. Varying stories floating around

      SC_Kev7 · 16/06/2017 at 10:09

      The only vision I've seen looks as if Jelwood tripped over his feet and landed with an elbow in the back of Mitchell's head. Is that it?

        INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 10:17

        That's what I saw to Kev. Also read reports Mitchell was the one that was reported for striking Selwood. It's confusing

          hedski · 16/06/2017 at 11:27

          Just seen new footage from behind the goals, probably makes it more confusing, looks like he tripped, not much in it.

    Dice · 16/06/2017 at 10:04

    Surely he'll get off Charles, he's in my side and i'm low on trades. He was hunting Mitchell for a big tackle but Mitchell went to ground, Selwood had nowhere to go.
    Although…..I'm sure he got a cheeky one away – he's a clever prick

    Derek · 16/06/2017 at 11:34

    Just had a look at the vision. My guess is Joel is ok, it is SMitch who might have a problem with a swinging arm

      Young_Guns · 16/06/2017 at 18:48

      Smitch will get a fine wasn't the antagonist….jelwood 1-2 and has history.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:22

    From the limited vision they had of it last night, it looked like he tripped, but good grief did he trip in the most inopportune (or oppotune) place to smack him right in the back of the noggin. Reckon it may be one, but I hope it isn't. Hard to tell without more footage

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 15:08

    I didn't like what I saw,he needs to get at least a week for that,even if he did trip as some are saying,it was very crude to use an elbow to the head for his landing.

      BrownlowBoy · 16/06/2017 at 16:00

      To be fair, Joel would have braced himself. Split second decision to stick his forearm up to protect himself.

        No one · 16/06/2017 at 19:39

        When I fall to the ground I put my hands out to break the fall rather than an elbow.

          Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 23:54

          I always use someone's head when I trip over, with my elbow, normal behaviour lol

    TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 20:11

    Regardless of whether he tripped, fact that the impact was made with his elbow is not a good look. If he tripped, normally you would use your hands to break the fall. That fact the elbow was used to break the fall will likely mean he will miss 1-2 weeks.

    David · 16/06/2017 at 23:41

    It's very hard to argu that some as skillful as Selwood accidentally drove Mitchells head through to China with his elbow. SMitch came up spitting teeth.

    Cr0magn0n · 17/06/2017 at 00:11

    Clearly he tripped, so the issue of intent won't be a problem for Selwood. I don't think they can suspend him for that.

      Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 00:19

      We're not talking about the trip but the intent to send sMitchell to sleep, enjoy the week off. Perhaps only Priddis and perhaps Yeo owners should mildly care if sMitchell is out.

        Cr0magn0n · 17/06/2017 at 00:28

        So, you are of the opinion that in the nanosecond after Selwood tripped and before he landed Selwood formed the intent to injure Mitchell? I'd say (and am certain he will also say) that he simply broke his fall at speed.

        Experiment, go and run down the street as fast as you can and trip yourself over and try to defeat your instinct to break your fall. I bet you can't do it!

          Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 19:41

          Yep, just tested it 10 times. Not once did I try to break my fall with my elbow leading into the ground, stuck my hands out instead. Here is the video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jXQhVzemLck
          Cheers

            Cr0magn0n · 19/06/2017 at 18:08

            I rest may case! My client is a free man! And you sir, are accident prone if that is your home video!! Don't leave the house without a stack-hat!! ; )

Bock Choy · 16/06/2017 at 09:53

So much said on the form of Fyfe but for me, Heath Shaw has been a much greater fail this year. Of my premo's, he's the first one in the cross-hairs.

    CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 09:56

    Me too Bock Choy. Just before Round 1 lockout it was Shaw or Adams, Shaw or Adams…I went Shaw. Never again.

    HarryO · 16/06/2017 at 09:58

    I agree bock. Im holding both but fyfe can come good after a rest and sandi back in the side. Unfortunately for shaw williams isnt going anywhere and still defenders to come back to make it worse. If u havent got lloyd he's a nice option i feel.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:24

    Very good point, Bock. One of the few dumpster fires I've managed to avoid this year. Would absoluely be looking to upgrade him once you've hit full premo

HarryO · 16/06/2017 at 09:55

what to do with Steele & butler community?? Could double them up to heeney and macrae But is steele just a 1 week wake up call or will it be longer… if i hold he could be an M6 and save a trade is all. Need the communitys advice

    HarryO · 16/06/2017 at 10:06

    F6 * apologies

    SC_Kev7 · 16/06/2017 at 10:12

    Agree with Patch, there's more to this story than meets the eye I reckon. It's been well reported his TOG% is pretty low. Carrying an injury maybe?

      HarryO · 16/06/2017 at 10:33

      I thought the same kev. But then he was named emergency… surely they wouldnt if he was injured? If Carlisle doesnt get up in time i feel they may bring steele in.

      Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:26

      Don't feel it's an injury keeping him out, form or attitude or refusal to go with game plans or something like that. Reckon it's a wake-up call, but Richo is from the Bevo school of hard knock wake up calls and we could see Steele gone for two. I'd trade him, for what it's worth. Can't see him being a good enough F6 to warrant holding

    CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 10:36

    My plan was to get rid of Steele today (for Buddy or Lunch). However, with Scooter now injured and potentially needing to trade him, I'm thinking Steele might be a hold for this week at least.

    Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 10:41

    Wait til final teams named. He's still an emergency. Newman, any one!! I'm still not sure I'll sell him at all. Might be back next week fired up as all f..

      INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 10:53

      Hold Steele until final teams / late changes. Carlisle is only 50/50 to play. If he doesn't that may not be good news for Roberton owners & Steele may a reprieve

        Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 12:38

        I'm going irrespective , the time and price is right for all 4;
        Steele – Heeney
        Hannan – Macrae

        Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 17:16

        I think Bailey Rice will come in if Carlisle is out.

    Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:45

    Awesome trade ins.

Big G · 16/06/2017 at 09:56

I hold on to that Declan fellow from North for 12 rounds and then finally trade him out and guess what..?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 10:05

    Would you like to join the I hate Brad Scott fan club too?

      ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 10:08

      Wonder if it has as many members as the I hate Ross Lyon fan club…

        Randomcliche2 · 16/06/2017 at 11:10

        I'm only a paid supporter of the I hate Brad Scott club.

    No one · 16/06/2017 at 19:44

    Thanks for trading him Big G, I've still got him. Brad sent me an apology email this morning apologizing for not playing him earlier but advised that his hands were tied until you made that trade.

FizzEm · 16/06/2017 at 10:12

Anybody else hoping boomer plays tonight v saints? Sneaks out in a fake moustache, fake tan, #92 and nobody would be wiser. Could have 40+ and 3 goals. Wouldn't be the craziest thing brad scotts done.

FLubber · 16/06/2017 at 11:00

Sandilands –> Goldy or hold on for the trade and use it elsewhere?

    kanetrain10 · 16/06/2017 at 11:23

    Hold on and wait for Gawn's price to drop if you can

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:27

    Hold if you can, Flubber

Bakesy · 16/06/2017 at 11:08

Nick Riewoldt worth a look now hes back?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 11:36

    The last 3 he has played were sub 80. And he's not durable

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:28

    Had him all season and it's a no from me. Has aged me by about 5 years

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 15:20

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no,not worth it,better players out there.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 18:33

      Shall I take that as a no John? 🙂

        JohndJames · 17/06/2017 at 01:01

        Yes

    Choice · 17/06/2017 at 02:18

    Remember that 200 final game….

kanetrain10 · 16/06/2017 at 11:22

What are people's thoughts on the maximum amount of players from one team in your supercoach side? I have L. Parker and Hannebery and i'm thinking of adding J. Lloyd or Hibberd for Otten for D6. Is 3 players from the one team too much? I like Lloyd as an SC option moreso than Hibberd but just weary of having too many Swans

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 16/06/2017 at 11:29

    I have Zak Jones, Nic Newman, Jake Lloyd, JPK, Heeney and Buddy. also had Melican until this week.

    Jones and Newman on the way out soon, but will hold onto the other 4. if they all score well often, no harm in it whatsoever. plus with a team like the swans, who want to come home strong, expect some good performances from those players

    Derek · 16/06/2017 at 11:43

    Everything has to go right for the swans. A loss and they might pack up for the year.

    I'm backing them to have a fair crack at finals this year. Have JPK, Hanners, Buddy and Lloyd next week. Seriously considering Heeney as well

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:29

    If they're all scoring I don't mind it Kane. Certainly having 4 is no issue, when you start getting towards 6 or 7 is when issues can arise in big losses.

    Now byes are over, I'd just look at each pick individually and not worry too much about what team they're playing for

    Top Gun · 16/06/2017 at 14:07

    Comes down to the success of the team and also whether they like to pass the ball around a lot eg doggies.

    Bock Choy · 16/06/2017 at 16:38

    I've always worked on 4 as the most from any team but their is no real science to this, just wish to avoid concentration risk. It's obviously a problem through the bye rounds; it can also be a problem if the whole team has a stinker.

      Daniel Z · 17/06/2017 at 12:36

      I think the only significant issue is for byes. Once those are sorted, a good player will get a good score regardless of who else is on his team. I would have to crunch a lot of numbers but my sense is that the second tier of players (the guys that typically average 70-90) suffer more from having a few guns in their team.

    Randomcliche · 17/06/2017 at 19:55

    If ya have 4 mids or two rucks or 2 forwards or 2 defenders (where they actually play, not sc pos) then you've probably gone to heavy. But a combo of a ruck a forward a defender and 3 mids is feasible, byes excepted.

Richie Porte · 16/06/2017 at 11:27

I need 2 more premo forwards. Which 2 out of Lynch, Yeo and Dahlhaus. Will bring in either Lynch or Dahl this week for the big Rough. Is Yeo worth spending the extra coin or stick with the other 2.

    Big G · 16/06/2017 at 11:33

    Yeo looked really good last night.

      Derek · 16/06/2017 at 11:39

      My cognitive bias prevented me from getting Yeo this year, pity. He is good and was very good last night.

        Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:31

        I've had the same issue, Derek. Nearly brough him in and stupidly went Scooter instead to make cash #regrets

        Think Yeo is the real deal, Richie, and of those two I'd take Dahl – just.

          The Ranger · 16/06/2017 at 12:48

          He burnt the bejesus out of me last year but I finally bought in Yeo this week after first carefully smothering myself in a 25g tube of Mundicare Burnaid Gel (only $6.99 from Chemist Warehouse).
          Stand back and watch as he starts furiously spudding up from here on in…

          Richie Porte · 16/06/2017 at 16:56

          Thanks mate

        Swans2012 · 16/06/2017 at 13:45

        I've got the same problem Derek…..

        Bock Choy · 16/06/2017 at 16:43

        I brought Yeo and Rockliff in for Roughead and Caddy in round 5 – best trade I've done this year. (then swapped Rocky out for Danger ($560k) in round 9).

          Richie Porte · 16/06/2017 at 16:56

          I had Yeo last year. I find it hard to bring him in. You watch next year O'Meara will come good just to spite us

            Skinny McThin · 16/06/2017 at 17:29

            I once ate a quince. I agree that this is a dumb comment Ritchie, so was yours.

              Richie Porte · 17/06/2017 at 09:21

              Cool story Skin Dog

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 15:27

    Brought in Yeo in round 8 for Houston,very happy owner,also had Dahlhaus from the start.

Big G · 16/06/2017 at 11:33

How useless is Parsons?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 11:44

    Makes you appreciate just how shit Pickett is

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:31

    On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say he's about a 12

    Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 12:53

    The Cats could literally have done no worse had they played a cardboard cut out of him instead. Consigning him to the dunny last week was one of my most enjoyable experiences this season.

      Off The Bench · 16/06/2017 at 13:21

      That sprayed set shot at goal was horrendous….

    BrownlowBoy · 16/06/2017 at 16:32

    He is as useless as a knitted condom.

    Randomcliche · 17/06/2017 at 19:58

    Don't think his elbow has ever been the same since hodge headbutted it.

Paul · 16/06/2017 at 11:42

Question for the community – how important is $30k this year? Have done the sums and is it worth delaying a trade (SPP to Lloyd) if it means saving 30k (going SPP to Lloyd and Stewart to Ryan), trading SPP this week, doing the Stewart trade and then making a mid upgrade as well?

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger regardless this week so that I can fast-track getting full premium.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:35

    Depends on how many trades you've got left – I'd lean towards saving the trade and waiting another week, but if you've done the sums and looked at your side lock in in

      Paul · 16/06/2017 at 12:46

      Have got 15 trades before trading this week so I'm pretty well placed.

        Patch · 16/06/2017 at 13:32

        You're fine to pull the trigger on two trades with 15 left!

    smart as s · 16/06/2017 at 13:29

    was onto lloyd all week, decided to wait a week now, the cash might help later in the season.

      Paul · 16/06/2017 at 14:08

      Think I'll pull the trigger, if Lloyd hits his average he will only drop 20k so I'm prepared to wear that, especially given I can trade in any mid in the game next week, so can potentially make a saving there if values drop across this round.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/06/2017 at 11:46

Geez you make me laugh patch.

Can you add a new segment to the patch up called:

Patch's Poison?
Players to avoid as I have traded them into the potatoes. 🙂

Harbrow and now fyfe to scooter! Double Barrell .
You are obviously not Irish as stuff all luck.

you know that iceberg I've been talking about well you have rammed head long into it, the old boat has been scuttled and you are taking in water (cue titanic music) not even Leonardo can save you.
May as well cling to that bit of debris though knowing your luck instead of a shark move likely to be eaten by a shark.

Can u do me a favour?
Don't bring in maccrae as he is joining my team this week.

Too funny.

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:37

    Players I've ruined the form lines of:
    Bont
    Tex Walker
    Harbrow
    NRoo
    Scooter
    McEvoy

    Love seeing you in the comments, Trigger – always good for a laugh, mate! (And at this point it's laughing or crying, and I know which one I'd rather be doing!)

      The Ranger · 16/06/2017 at 12:42

      Patch if you could see your way to bringing in Josh Kelly and Sam Docherty that would be much appreciated as i don't own either of them.
      Thanks mate!

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/06/2017 at 12:51

        God no not the doc!
        Go your hardest on Kelly

          No one · 16/06/2017 at 19:54

          I think you need Duckwood too,

Eve · 16/06/2017 at 11:48

DEF: Doc, Hibberd – Melb, Tuohy, Newmann, Berry, Hibberd – Nth (Shaw, Adams)
MID: Danger, S Selwood, Merrett, Beams, JPK, Macrae, P-Pepper, Myers (Fyfe, Pendles, Cousins)
RUC: Sandi, Martin (Strnadica)
FWD: Lynch, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Roughy, Nank, Parsons (Eddy, Greenwood)
13 trades – 97K (17 on field) Trade who to who or hold?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 11:58

    Roughead to Heeney

      FizzEm · 16/06/2017 at 12:02

      sandi out heeney in possibly?

      Eve · 16/06/2017 at 17:33

      Very tempting.
      What about Roughy to Bont and swing Macrae FWD?

    kanetrain10 · 16/06/2017 at 12:08

    Sandi out, swing Nank into the ruck, swing Macrae forward then grab a premo mid like bont

      Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:38

      I'm liking this call – flick Roughy next week to keep the warm body for this bye round

Mark · 16/06/2017 at 12:00

Hey guys, i put this in the cheat sheet forum but thought i'd put it here to get a few more opinions. I wasn't as specific last time which impacts the decision. Before you read, i only have 11 trades and 3 upgrades left before this week.
Do I bring in Heeney this week for my last fwd spot, and Ryder remains R2 for the remainder of the year, or hold and bring in a. Ruckman in the next few weeks, which puts Ryder into that last spot. Would probably target Gawn in a few weeks if i didn't bring in Heeney.
My current ruck structure is Grundy and Ryder
My fwd premos currently are: Macrae, Yeo, Buddy, Dahl and Lynch
Which option community?

    Derek · 16/06/2017 at 12:36

    I have the same issue. I have Ryder at R2 and have 5 premium forwards, including Nank.

    I have cash to go Myers >> Lynch, but not anyone else without another culling. I'll probably do that trade.

    I still want to get Gawn in 2 or 3 weeks time. I have Stewart (ess), Butler and Greenwood in forwards to make some cash.

    Get Gawn at R2, swing Ryder to F7 and use picket as a E looping swinger in case Buddy, Lynch, Gawn, Martin have a poor game

      Mark · 16/06/2017 at 16:31

      Cheers Derek!

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:41

    In a straight Gawn vs Heeney decision, I'd take Gawn every day of the week to outscore Heeney.

    However, in the long run, you'll wait for Gawn to play (round 14 or 15), then another week or two for his price to drop, and by then Heeney has a near-400 point headstart on total points over Gawn for the rest of the year. Lock Heeney away this week for mine, and if you can upgrade Paddy to Max in a few weeks maybe that's something to look into

    So Heeney this week for mine, Mark

      Mark · 16/06/2017 at 16:30

      Thanks Patch!

Nick · 16/06/2017 at 12:06

Hey community!
What to do between these two options:

OPT1 : Trade out Steele for Dusty
OPT2: Trade out Steele for JPK / Bont / Beams and save cash for a trade the following week
OPT 3: Bring Nank to ruck and trade out Sandi for Dusty / or any boys above (using DPP)
OPT 4: Trade out WHE for Bont / Beams / JPK (using DPP)

Cheers in advance!

    Nick · 16/06/2017 at 12:07

    Sorry, meant four options!! 😐

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 12:48

    Hey Nick!

    That is a toughie – I assume you can only pull the one trade? As much as I advocate trading Steele, in that case option 4 (probably to Bont) would be the move I'd pull – chance Steele is back next week and you can move then. I do like the sound of Steele to Dusty, mind you, but probably better to cull WHE and reasses Steele next week

      Nick · 16/06/2017 at 12:55

      Cheers Patch!
      I can pull two trades but don't have anyone in mind to downgrade to?
      Already have the likes of Cousins, Ryan, Greenwood.

        Patch · 16/06/2017 at 13:00

        If you've got cover, non-playing DPP rookies can almost start coming into the equation, but probably just leave it at one for now

TBone · 16/06/2017 at 12:28

Hey guys, I'm in a do or die game this weekend so every point counts. Should I trade Sandi to Stef Martin? Trade Sandi to Heeney via Nank? Or hold Sandi, take the donut and likely not take the win? Cheers guys

    Derek · 16/06/2017 at 15:17

    in a straight Martin or Heeney decision, i would go Steph

    Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 16:21

    The Archie factor is always a concern. Heeney is a gun and has a high ceiling. I reckon in a do or die id roll the dice on him. He's probably joining my team for Steele.

TheGreatBozza · 16/06/2017 at 12:34

Taranto > Lynch or any other sub $500K FWD? I alreay have Macrae, Heeney, Dahl & Nank. t'll bring me to 17 on field.
I've got no other options to get to 18 unless I offload Sandi, Fyfe, Shaw or D.Cameron

    Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:41

    Taranto is done, and not playing. Trade away.

    redherringfc · 16/06/2017 at 18:48

    Buddy?

Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 12:57

If you were going to take a punt on a midfield rookie getting an extended run later in the season, who you go? Wigg, Freeman? I need to downgrade and the cupboard is bare. I can field 18 regardless (I think).

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 13:03

    If not for cover, we can almost think about downgrading to non-playing DPP rookies,but if you need them for cover I'm pretty stumped. Probably a question for Barron von Crow, but Jono Beech is looking like he played well enough to get a decent run at it… wouldn't touch Freeman with a barge pole given his injury history

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 13:46

    Whilst far from guaranteed Rick I can see Cal Brown getting some more games. I don't think we will be seeing Wells & Elliot anytime soon

      Derek · 16/06/2017 at 14:04

      Miles should get another game soon

      I already have my non playing DPP. Had him from round 1

        Patch · 16/06/2017 at 14:33

        You've only got one? I've carried 5 all season!

          Derek · 16/06/2017 at 15:15

          thats why i'm running low on trades. decided not to carry dead wood this year except for Pickett

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 15:09

    Another to consider at 102k Mid / Fwd is Josh deluca Cardillo for Freo. Has been smashing the WAFL

      Captain Risky · 16/06/2017 at 15:25

      He's been my loophole player all year, but he's going OK, might even end up with a game soon 🙂

      Not sure why I bothered with a loophole player though…. I seem to have loads of options every week 🙁

        Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 17:32

        Yep never really understood people picking players that weren't going to get games. Always plenty of loop hole options.

      Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 16:14

      Yea I looked at him. Great stats each week. Once Freo realise they are stuffed he might get a run. DPP and cheap as chips. SOLD.

      hedski · 16/06/2017 at 16:44

      Had him from day dot, won't mind if he gets a run now cos I got Sterndicka for Preuss a few weeks back.

smart as s · 16/06/2017 at 13:12

Scooter was a disaster in the waiting. learned it from swallow after his first two tons, always guns and rookies from that point. wouldnt have got him for 200k, but thats just my way.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 13:49

    He's made just enough for me to be able to move him to a gun next week. Thank you for your services

    Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 17:30

    Might be worth waiting and seeing how long he is out for, don't you think?

      INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 18:00

      No. For me it was the M8 express. I can downgrade Stewart next week & move him to anyone

        Pman · 16/06/2017 at 19:54

        Depending on how long he's out for I'll aim to keep him as traded him in with the view to be permanent M9 once full premo. If 3 weeks + then down to young Rowdy Jnr if he goes well in his 2nd game.

Slatsy · 16/06/2017 at 13:45

Had planned to hold Sandi through his injury/bye but given I'm only fielding 16 this week I'm contemplating

Myers to L.Ryan via DPP
Sandi to Bont
Nank into R2

14 trades left.

Prior to this trade i need 2 def + 1 mid for full premo (if you count sandi as premo ruck)

After i will still need 2 def + 1 fwd or ruck but I'll bank enough to straight swap t.stewart to j.lloyd next week

Do it or no?

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 14:33

    I'd pull the trigger on that one, Slatsy.

Jordan · 16/06/2017 at 14:15

How many trades do u need after being full premium I will have about 6 or 7 is that enough?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 14:27

    As many as possible but at least 6 if you can. Many will be much less

      Patch · 16/06/2017 at 14:32

      4 is the absolute minimum, but six is ideal

James · 16/06/2017 at 14:27

Zorko or JPK?

    Patch · 16/06/2017 at 14:32

    Love a bit of a POD, so Zork for mine

      INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 14:38

      Agree with Patch & go for the Magnificent

Tom · 16/06/2017 at 14:47

How far off is Balic from getting a game?

    Nick · 16/06/2017 at 15:28

    Who cares…if you are relying on Balic to play your team is in trouble!!

      Tom · 16/06/2017 at 15:42

      I asking because I'm contemplating trading him out for Bolton to make some cash

        NutSack · 16/06/2017 at 19:30

        Ball-Lick is done… he wont play coz he has homesickness….. he's got the tissues out and is done in AFL

ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 14:55

Dustin Martin may be a late out with back soreness.

    Ja191 · 16/06/2017 at 15:00

    he better not be

      Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 15:05

      Source ? – I was told trained well today with heaps of supporters there to watch

        ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 15:09

        Herald Sun, he left training early with a back issue.

          Richie Porte · 16/06/2017 at 16:59

          Is that from holding up your SuperCoach side all year

            ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 19:50

            Half the year Richie

      ProTravo · 16/06/2017 at 15:10

      I second that.
      I'll be receiving my first donut of the year if he's out.

        Pete · 16/06/2017 at 16:57

        1st lol ' iv got 9 this week

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 15:04

    I'd be happy with that

    Ja191 · 16/06/2017 at 16:01

    "left training but club says he'll play"

      Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 16:10

      They'll always say that. Why give the opposition a heads up and time to change their plans.

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 21:02

    7 News said the club says he is a definite starter

Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 15:07

Do Newman owners see him as their D6 if he keeps averaging 85's ?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/06/2017 at 15:51

    Bloody oath blush
    Avg of 90 that will do me for a d6
    Has a very friendly SC game and role.
    Loves to kick the pill and find a target streaming off half back.

      Bradk · 16/06/2017 at 16:18

      Yup keeper for me. Wait till he pumpsnout another 150..

      A downgrade to llyod seems a good option too though

        Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 17:35

        Problem is he could be dropped at any time ala Mitchell

          Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:37

          Then you move him on when that happens.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 16:29

    I'm not convinced at all that it's worth trading him to Lloyd. In fact Newman has the higher ceiling. Might loop him with Ryan. I'd prefer to allocate the trades to get Gawn

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/06/2017 at 18:03

      Keeping Newman
      Trading Stewart or Barrett to Lloyd next week

    Finnius123 · 16/06/2017 at 17:16

    I am keeping him

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 18:48

    I thought he was a keeper from 3 or 4 rounds back, but I needed to get Doch in so…someone had to go, he served me well though.

Rick Grimes · 16/06/2017 at 16:12

Same SCD. But Witts is a keeper at the moment. moment​. Actually getting better each week. And lots talking bout Newman being a keeper with an 85 average. Shaw at worst will eclipse that.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 16:38

    Witts giving no reason to get rid of him. His Av keeps climbing. And the suns have a good run

Jack · 16/06/2017 at 16:17

Would I be mad for trading Fyfe if I'm going for league?

    Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:36

    Yep, it's too early to trade him.

Joshua · 16/06/2017 at 16:21

Hold off on Steele to Franklin if he is a late in?

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 16:31

    For sure. Might be a wake up call for him

James · 16/06/2017 at 16:49

Any suggestions for my team would be appreciated, I have $250k on the side, 14 trades and this is my team:

DEF: docherty, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Simpson, Newman EMG Stewart, Berry

MID: Danger, Selwood, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, SPP EMG Barrett, Lloyd, Cousins

RUCK: Grundy, Nank EMG English

FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Greenwood, Parsons, Bolton EMG Stewart, Strnadica

Cheers guys

    Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 17:38

    Need to start working on that forward line, maybe get Heeney and later swing Nank forward and get Gawn.

      James · 16/06/2017 at 17:49

      for who though? Who would I trade out? I was considering just holding this week because most my rookies should rise in cash

    Slatsy · 16/06/2017 at 19:24

    Could go SPP to Lynch(GC) and swing Bolton onto mid bench

Nick · 16/06/2017 at 16:50

Not sure out of
A. WHE for Bont or JPK
B. Sandi for Dusty or Beams (or boys in A and extra cash)
C. Steele for Dusty or Beams (or boys in A and extra cash)

    Burns. · 16/06/2017 at 17:39

    Trade in Bont and JPK

wightyswarriors · 16/06/2017 at 16:57

fyfe to swood …betting im not alone. that comes after parfitt to durdin which I had to do on a friday night only for durdin late withdrawal ,,oh well,,,at least I get doch this week…sorry in advance to those who have him

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 17:44

    Many went Fyfe to Selwood. Unless your flush with trades I'm not sure how you dig your way out of that one. If he was M9 then hold him. If he was going to be M8 that's a problem. Probably only makes 20k this week & he wont make money again for a long time. Doch is in fine form & a great inclusion Wighty

Skinny McThin · 16/06/2017 at 17:20

What are the chances of a late out for the saints? Have they pulled one this year?

    Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 17:26

    I'm only replying cos I love your name , Skinny McThin – LOL lots , seriously though J.Carlisle could be a late out, bah,ha ha ha, soz mate

      Thanks Mr Gale.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 17:39

    I have heard Carlisle Weller & Roo are chance's to miss. I'm sure they all won't be later with drawls. But don't trade Jack Steele until final teams come out

    Richie Porte · 17/06/2017 at 09:28

    Depends if anyone ate some bad quince

Joshua · 16/06/2017 at 17:28

Heard on triple m that Roo could be a late out.

Ben · 16/06/2017 at 17:37

Surely Joel gets a fine no weeks

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 17:58

    Elbow to the back of the head to a guy lying defenseless on the ground,that's worse than guys punching each other.should get two weeks,but probably only one since it's Selwood.

      Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 19:13

      He tripped, good defence. Might get a fine but that's all. See you next week Joel.

    No one · 16/06/2017 at 21:01

I have just enough to go to Bont or Heeney.

    He's not going to be a top forward. Now is the time. Get rid of him. I'd get Bont over Heeney

Myers to Ryan to free up some cash for upgrades next week. Is it worth going a week early on Luke Ryan?

    Mark · 16/06/2017 at 18:28

    I'd hold a week

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 18:33

    Ross did praise him after the last game. But that doesn't mean anything. I think you should wait if you can

    Wedge · 16/06/2017 at 18:41

    If you want to do two upgrades next week then I would be doing that trade this week. If not then wait.

Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 18:33

No changes for Saints,Macmillan out for Anderson for the Roos

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 18:47

    Hit the road Jack

Daniel · 16/06/2017 at 18:43

I have 7 Forwards playing this week, do I take Parsons 51 or roll the dice with Bolton?

    jay · 16/06/2017 at 19:35

    Bolton hasn't gone over 60 all year.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:50

      All year = 3 games and he did get a 67 in his first game, other two games in the 40's though.

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 19:55

    You had Parsons starting on your bench!? What were you thinking???

      Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 00:36

      Clearly no mid fwd dpp. He's loopholing and chosen not to buy a dummy dpp.

    Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 00:36

    Take parsons score. It starts with a 5. This is a horrible bunch of rookies.

redherringfc · 16/06/2017 at 18:44

To make 18 on field, do i go Mountford this week or take the donut and risk that Ross won't screw my plans and bring in Ryan a week early. I need to make a trade for the cash for Macrae. I think I have all leagues won carrying just 16 players anyway.

DuckDaDoh · 16/06/2017 at 18:46

Which forward to trade Steele to? Currently have Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Greene, Lynch and Nank in ruck.

    Whatyasmokin · 16/06/2017 at 18:52

    Buddy, Heeney?

    Don't Blush Baby · 16/06/2017 at 18:52

    Heeney isn the obvious or Buddy ,but I wouldn't have Bud N Lynch IMO

FCAbel · 16/06/2017 at 18:58

Mountford or Ryan as a downgrade? Mountford will give me 19

Mark · 16/06/2017 at 19:03

Who should I trade into my FWD line
Money not a issue . I'm leaning towards Billlings

Thoughts??!

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:30

    Who's in you fwd line now Mark? Do you have Buddy or Heeney?

      Mark · 16/06/2017 at 19:32

      Nope don't have either of them

      Is Billings a option

        Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:37

        Yeah but he's still quite up and down score-wise…a bit of a risky pick and probably not a top 6 fwd, which is what you want.

          Mark · 16/06/2017 at 19:39

          I'll take heeney

        Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:39

        MacRae and Dahlhaus are good options too.

INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 19:10

That's still a good trade IMO. Steele could be back next week. If so THANK BEER

    redherringfc · 16/06/2017 at 19:31

    Yeah it might pay off, but Steele or Ryder will end up on the bench and that's a lot of cash sitting on the bench. At least i have eddy to loophole.

CoachDamo · 16/06/2017 at 19:26

I'm thinking Steele to Lynch…

I was hoping Steele could be an F7 keeper, but really need a league win.

    INPieman · 16/06/2017 at 19:48

    I just pulled that trade. I don't like it but I need the warm body

NutSack · 16/06/2017 at 19:28

Very strange how Higgo said if you trade Fyfe you lock in a $91K loss…. more like if you keep Fyfe you lock in a weekly score of 91 points…… I sold the Freo Flog Prince way behind in yonder days and havent looked backed 😉

    Derek · 16/06/2017 at 19:39

    what if he averaged 99sc for the rest of the year, would you keep him?

    Cr0magn0n · 17/06/2017 at 00:13

    The same Higgo who was advocating trading Fyfe out in the previous weeks podcast. And Laird I might add!

      Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 01:06

      The shifting sands of supercoach lol.

waynesworld · 16/06/2017 at 19:31

Started the year with 4 ruckmen sandi witts nank and ryder with strna on the bench.
traded sandi a few weeks ago. Im worried about ryder scoring . Seems he gets a raw deal with his hitouts to adv in his stats
Been a lot of games this year were his 80s and 90s seem very low for the stats he puts out. Want to look at getting gawn in a few weeks
Plus maybe a martin goldie or mummy soon too. any advise on which one is the better? And are witts and ryder the right ones to trade out? Im all premo in def mids and fwds, think my rucks a bit weak.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:34

    Yeah I'd trade out Ryder before Witts, and maybe wait a week or two for Gawn to come back.

JDP · 16/06/2017 at 19:41

Heeney or Buddy????

Thanks for thoughts

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 21:04

    I like consistency, which is why I would lean towards Heeney. But Bud can go big and may just average slightly more than Heeney by years end.

Joshua · 16/06/2017 at 19:49

Pulled the trigger on Steele to Franklin after a coin flip between him or Heeney lol, hope it works out

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 19:53

    Good call Josh…I've had him from day 1, set and forget fwd.

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 20:04

    As did I about 3 minutes before kick off. Could be an exciting ride with Buddy and hoping he has a day out against the Tigers at the G tomorrow in perfect conditions. The stage is set…

Walter · 16/06/2017 at 19:53

Glad i didnt get burnman scooter selwood or ryder, yeehaa

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 20:03

    Yeah Walter. Same here!! All our trades have been flawless. And we now are ranked equal first over all the losers on here. We are awesome!!

    Who am I kidding… I can admit I've made several flog mistakes. That's why I'm here! I need this community. How about you Walter?

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:06

      Haha

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:07

    Karma will get ya Walter…you have angered the SC Gods

    Cogla13 · 16/06/2017 at 20:29

    Flog

Joshua · 16/06/2017 at 19:58

Paint the fence and upgrade Scooter ASAP or cover with Greenwood until he is back?

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 20:02

    Wait and see how long he's definitely out for first. I'm hoping to hold as want him as my M9 once full premo and Greenwood is decent cover.

      BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 20:06

      Could not agree more Pman!! Plus trades are now at a premium. He is my M9 and actually gives me a handy loophole decoy while out too

TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 20:29

Just had another look at that Jelwood and Smitchell incident last night. I reckon Jelwood is GONSKI.

The argument that he tripped and landed on Mitchell is fine.

However, why did he use his elbow to "break the fall" which also "coincidentally" landed on Mitchell's face?

Instinctively, when a person is tripped, they use their hands to break the impact of the fall.

Sorry Joel, IMO you deserve a week for that.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:33

    It looked to me HAWK…that Selwood was looking forward towards the ball when he 'accidentally' elbowed Mitchell in the back of the head, that could be his only defence I reckon.

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 20:40

    I'm with you TOPHAWK1,been saying it since it happened,Selwood saw an opportunity to hurt an old foe and took it

      TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 20:58

      Joel has been a naughty naughty boy. If he get's off with a fine, I am trading out Dangerfield next week in protest!

      Aaarghh just kidding.

      Glad I stuck with Dusty in the end.

      Joel can get a ride on a scooter next week.

    hedski · 16/06/2017 at 20:43

    I think Joel went "WHACK", and will be safe.
    FU SMitch ya wanka.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:46

      I reckon one should cancel out the other after Mitchell's attempted UFC choke out.

        hedski · 16/06/2017 at 20:48

        Yeah PLAY ON.

        JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 20:49

        I thought Mitch was very restrained after what Selwood did.

          hedski · 16/06/2017 at 20:51

          Meh. He tripped.

            JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 21:02

            He might have tripped as you say,but he still took the opportunity to elbow Mitch in the back of the head,it was not an accident,but being Selwood he will probably get off

              hedski · 16/06/2017 at 21:24

              I would have too.

    Top Gun · 16/06/2017 at 21:03

    It will be low level impact and he will get a fine.

      TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 21:25

      When claret dropped off the face of Mitchell after the incident, I am not sure if the MRP would perceive it as "low impact".

      Smitchell does not bleed after a "low level impact" hit. Never seen the bloke bleed in my life.

      1-2 weeks in the dog (cat) house for Joel Selwood.

        hedski · 16/06/2017 at 21:54

        Anything happen after that young Hawk had his lip split last week?
        NB. Possibly friendly fire, blood means shit.

          Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 00:29

          Your problem with viewing the incident is your Cats scarf is blurring your vision. Take it off and you will be fine. Jelwood will be on holiday 2 plus weeks.

    Adriqn · 17/06/2017 at 23:19

    the mrp will look closely at it and when they reaslise its that grub smitchell…..they will all get up leave the table and head to the lunch room and grab coffees….and consider giving Jelwood 2 weeks for not hitting the soft prick hard enough.

JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 20:34

Worked out that I won't be able to get to full premo unless I use nearly all my trades,so have decided to keep two of my rookies in my defence,out of Newman,Marchbank and Stewart and most probably will have to keep Greenwood in my forwards,already full premo in the mids.Just think it is safer to have trades up your sleeve,than to be full premo with only two or three trades left.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:37

    Keeping Newman, Marchbank or Stewart and Greenwood isn't such a bad thing John, otherwise like you said, with only 2 or 3 trades left, your season could be over with one bad week of injuries and or suspensions.

      JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 21:11

      I tried so hard this year not to wast trades,but had to keep the rookies rolling for the cash generation and it caught up with me.

        Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:17

        How many do you have left mate?

          JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 21:20

          9

            Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:26

            That's not bad mate, I thought you were down to dangerous numbers like 4 or something..if you stick with your good rooks for 3 or 4 more weeks, you might still be able to upgrade them come finals.

            BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 21:27

            If you can get to full premo with 4/5 trades left it may be enough to ride your team home! Remember that when you are full premo you no longer need to paint the fence (use two trades). You simply swap like for like (sideways trading) if/when a premo goes down.

TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 20:42

If Billings was 3 centimetres taller, he would have 3 goals now instead of 1……..

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:43

    Haha..yeah bugger these North defenders, with their long fingers!

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 20:53

    Actually, 4 straight (instead he is 2.2). He looks nimble enough to get mid time. If he did, he would be a SC fwd lock

    Top Gun · 16/06/2017 at 21:02

    Or two years ago

BockChoy · 16/06/2017 at 20:51

Roo is moving like a crippled crab.

    TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 21:05

    Yep. I know it. When you catch a crab in a drop net and look at it and it has a claw missing. You know that the crab is hungry and lame. Call it the Riewoldt effect. The nick version.

hedski · 16/06/2017 at 20:52

Rooey is so slow and proppy now, not sure it was worth holding him.

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 21:12

    Why do you still have him?apart from being low on trades like me.

      hedski · 16/06/2017 at 21:26

      Answered your own question there JJ.

        JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 21:36

        Yep good guess,never really liked him though,prefer Buddy as far as the true fwds go.

          hedski · 16/06/2017 at 21:56

          Got Bud, been pretty consistent.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:15

    He'll be right Hedski, gotta give him a chance to get back in the groove again…If he still looks the same after another couple of weeks I'd think about moving him on.
    Hope he has a big second half for ya.

Defying_Madness · 16/06/2017 at 20:54

Who does the community think will average the highest from the rucks from this point onward?

    BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 20:57

    I know many will disagree, but I believe Kruez will continue to finish the year strong and cement himself in the same SC echelon as Goldy and Gawn. A ballsy pick, but one that could reward you!!

      BockChoy · 16/06/2017 at 20:59

      I agree with this.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 20:59

    Definitely not Billy Longer..really hard to say, Grundy seems to be back in some form again. Hopefully Gawn in a few weeks!

      BlueNath · 16/06/2017 at 21:21

      I'm holding out for Gawn, personally. Will fall to a low $500k mark after two decent games. But if he comes back slowly then could even fall below $500k. That would be over $150k less than his starting price. Anyone who can wait should

    TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 21:13

    Goldy and Stefan Martin for mine. Gawn does not count as right now is not fit/playing.

    For me, I have to upgrade Ryder for either Goldy or Gawn in the next 3-4 weeks to join Stefan Martin in my side.

      TheBenchmark25 · 16/06/2017 at 21:51

      I agree with this. I had Martin and upgraded Sandilands to goldy this week

        Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:54

        Good call!…Goldy top scoring for the game…wahoo

        TOPHAWK1 · 16/06/2017 at 21:56

        Great job. Goldy is a leviathan. Pruess is on the outer at North.

          Daniel Z · 17/06/2017 at 13:03

          I don't understand why though. Had a few great games, was hitting his stride, then dropped.
          He'll be good trade bait if North think Goldy is the long-term solution.

      hedski · 16/06/2017 at 21:58

      Stef and Mummy. As long as Mummy doesn't get sidetracked at Bunnings.

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 01:03

    Kreuzer and Goldy.

Top Gun · 16/06/2017 at 21:03

North v Saints…..both Browns are poo….appropriate name.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:32

    The brown pair of pooper scoopers.

waynesworld · 16/06/2017 at 21:14

Billings 90 points at half time seems a bit high for 2.2 and 10 disposals.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:31

    Yeah, it all falls into that 'mysterious' zone where it depends on how important it was at that time…or some crap.

      waynesworld · 16/06/2017 at 21:45

      This year has seen some weird scores that just don't add up!

        Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 22:09

        And now he's on 99…that probably adds up lol, 9 points in almost a half.

Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:30

Not that I have him, or ever would but how the hell can Longer be on 3 points after having 4 handballs, 1 mark, 14 tapouts and 1 free against? Was every single thing he did ineffective?…lol

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 21:40

    In a similar vein Ben Brown is currently on 0 points with 5 mins to go in the 3rd QTR. Has anyone ever played 4 QTRS and and scored a Duck?

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:44

      Oh I didn't notice that Pman…lol, he's on 3 now, yeah I'm pretty sure some guys have played a whole game and ended up in the negative…how'd ya be?…hahah

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:53

      Ben Brown's back to minus 2 now lol

        Pman · 16/06/2017 at 22:04

        Now Minus 3 with 12mins to go…What A Spud!

          Pman · 16/06/2017 at 22:46

          Came home with a late flurry for a Big 12 points for the night. Reckon Preuss owners will be happy next week…

      redherringfc · 17/06/2017 at 08:18

      Stevie Milne played a full game and ended up on -3 a few years ago. That was quite an effort.

        Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 10:01

        Is that worst SC score ever? haha

        Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 10:01

        For a full game played*

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 01:01

    Coming off a 107 and 98 I bet a few locked in Longer. A paltry 21 SC tonight lol.

    BigBoyBananana · 17/06/2017 at 09:04

    he gave away a 50m penalty mate, =-8. Hitouts only worth points if it goes 'directly' to someone on their team

Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:42

I've got a sick feeling that StKilda can still lose this one, the way they've played this quarter is super average, and a loss would be consistent with their slide into shiteseville in the last 3 weeks.

    Top Gun · 16/06/2017 at 21:47

    Saints will win but why won't they take the game on like they did in the first quarter for the entire game? Now back to being methodically boring and slow in their movement

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 21:51

      I know right it's bloody frustrating, they should be stomping the boots into their throats now and instead they're playing it safe…again.

    JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 22:00

    It's in the bag,sit back and enjoy it Russty.

      Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 22:06

      Cheers John, I think I'm suffering from 3 losses in a row syndrome 🙂

        JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 22:34

        That ending wouldn't have helped,still won but boy you went to sleep.I had Ross in the perfect 9,missed by that much.

          Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 23:48

          I forgot to pick my perfect 9 team this week, was sitting in third too lol, oh well.

Mavs17 · 16/06/2017 at 21:46

Roberton 92 points from just 16 touches! So nice

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 22:09

    Reckon he'll be my last Defensive upgrade, he is having a great season so far.

JohndJames · 16/06/2017 at 22:23

What do people think of Ainsworth mid/fwd as a F7/8 do you think he could stay in the team ,can still make 80k in the next few weeks. Hadn't even thought about him but someone asked about him earlier and it got me thinking.

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 23:07

    Too expensive for my liking after his price increase last week that said I was gutted to miss him last week as comitted to a Thurs night trade and got caught short when he was named on the Friday. If you can afford him then go for it but I'd rather be spending any extra coin on Premiums first.

      JohndJames · 17/06/2017 at 00:21

      I agree about the too expensive part Pman,I usually like to downgrade to a $117,300 type,but was thinking if Ainsworth stays in the team,he could score just as well as WHE,yes I still have him,plus I get 130k+ in cash.I probably won't do it,but something for me to think about.

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 10:28

    Callum Brown.

      JohndJames · 17/06/2017 at 14:01

      Hi Whatyasmokin,I will be looking at Brown when he is on the bubble for the Parsons downgrade,if you can call it that.

Finnius123 · 16/06/2017 at 22:38

Goldy has been a very good pick up. A big score in a loss shows that he could end up a top ruckman come season's end. 3 and 5 round average of 108 and with this 130 odd – Goldy looks the goods. He will probably break down during the week though and screw my season over lol

    Pman · 16/06/2017 at 23:03

    Picked him up 3 weeks ago went Sandi got injured and haven't looked back. My only concern is considering how bad Ben Brown was tonight (12 SC pts) is that Preuss will come back in and have an "Archie Smith like" impact on his scores. Hopefully I'm wrong.

hedski · 16/06/2017 at 22:58

Rooey = 92.
FCK me that's OK.

    Randomcliche2 · 17/06/2017 at 00:25

    Considering he's broken, it's very bloody good.

    Dice · 17/06/2017 at 09:45

    Good to see others held him. Ill take that hedski, 92 and played terrible

      hedski · 17/06/2017 at 10:21

      Hopefully works his way back to some form Dice.

One Touch Wonder · 16/06/2017 at 23:42

Whatever you have to do to get Ablett into your team this week you must do. Anyone who wants to get rid of Fyfe or Sandilands or Roughie or Steele or Docherty. This is the SHARK MOVE that must be made NOW. Last chance under $600,000. Suns have the EASIEST run home of any team, all Ablett friendly teams. Stick a pony on him for the Brownlow.

    Russty_ · 16/06/2017 at 23:43

    Get rid of Docherty?…have you gone mad Mr Wonder?…hahah

      Deeboss · 17/06/2017 at 00:22

      hahaha I think he has… best defender 2 years running.

      JohndJames · 17/06/2017 at 00:26

      Must have been a misprint.

      Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 01:09

      Just a bit of humour thrown in, as are some of the shark moves themselves I reckon 😉

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 07:13

    OTW is back. Get rid of Doch? No thanks. I found another way to get the majestic bald man named Gary

      One Touch Wonder · 17/06/2017 at 09:50

      I wasn't serious about trading Docherty for Ablett. But there are many people swimming with the shoal and getting Docherty, very safe and very expensive for a defender.

        INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 09:57

        He will kill you if you don't have him. Poor Derek hasn't slept for weeks because of the Doch

        Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 10:22

        Sometimes swimming with the shoal is necessary.

        Doch should've been first player picked in people's backlines anyway. No point messing about to save 50K-100K and miss all their scoring for the season. People often forget this (Not saying you are just generally speaking)

        Just like Danger this year dropped heaps but then again he got 140 odd for the first 3 games.

Cr0magn0n · 17/06/2017 at 00:12

I like it

Stupid Coach · 17/06/2017 at 02:08

Another quality write up Patch. Have 18 on the field but this includes 44 from Scooter. Looking to trade Myers to Ainsworth and Fyfe to MacRae or Zorko to get over the line in my league matches or is it better to wait until next week for better downgrade optios and bring MacRae for Scooter next week. Currently have 13 trades.

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:37

    Those trades are too sideways. Fyfe can easily come good over the next few rounds…..long way to go yet.

    Next week bring in mountford (if named) for Myers. Ainsworth is 243K!

    Macrae for Scooter next week sounds good. Make sure you get Ryan in the backline as well.

      Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:55

      Agree with smoking, those trades are too sideways – if you're going for League than that's a heavy price for a single week's win, unless you are already well outside the top 8.

        Stupid Coach · 17/06/2017 at 11:45

        Thanks WAS and Dutch. Currently 12th and 13th in my respective leagues but only percentage and a game (other league) outside the top 8. Already had Mountford in my team from the start and never go around to trading him out. Upon reflection the trades do seem sideways, just worried about my score and staying in touch with the top 8. Thanks for your advice.

Kade · 17/06/2017 at 03:28

Beams or Zorko?

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 07:10

    Zorko

    Whitey · 17/06/2017 at 07:30

    Zorko for ease of sleep. Beams if you want to ride the roller coaster like me.

    Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:25

    Zorko

TheBenchmark25 · 17/06/2017 at 06:57

Overall finish has made me trade to get 18 players on the pitch 🙁

Traded out:
Sandilands
Fyfe
Hampton ( I've had bigger problems that's why he was still in my team )

Traded in
Goldstein
Rockliff
Luke Ryan

Hoping rocky can shake off his shoulder like Ablett did and start tackling. I still don't reckon he is right but had to take a risk hoping he comes good earlier than I think he will

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 07:29

    Nice debut for goldy in your team. I hope rocky does the same

      TheBenchmark25 · 17/06/2017 at 07:57

      Yep trying to stay a move ahead of the peleton.
      Did you bring in rocky this week or already have him pieman?
      Hope the he returns to a tackling machine

        INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 08:57

        I got him last week. It was between him & Gary & I grabbed Rocky based on his low BE. I picked up Gary this morning. I also hope Rocky starts to tackle again!!! My whole midfield will be full of players with the biggest ceilings Danger Rocky Gary Pendles Hanners Fyfe Jelwood & M8 to be selected next week

    The Ranger · 17/06/2017 at 09:15

    Nice trades Benchmark, If I can raise the funds Rocky will be my M8.

Whitey · 17/06/2017 at 07:27

Using a reasonably accurate crystal I have two options that I would like opinions on:

Option 1: In two weeks time I could be down to 4 trades but be full premo and have Lloyd to swing between the mids and def as a M7/D7 (or could bench Rance/Priddis).

Option 2: In two weeks be full premo with 6 trades up my belt and about 200K in the bank.

Side note, will be full premo after this week.

Thanks for your opinions in advance.

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 07:57

    Tough call. Probably keep the trades & cash & target Gawn when the time is right

      Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:32

      For sure.

    Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:26

    Certainly not option 1, that's too few trades with a long way to go

    The Ranger · 17/06/2017 at 09:35

    Option 1 would be the balls out version, 2 is much safer so it depends how ballsy you think you need to be.
    Option 2 for mine.

Andy · 17/06/2017 at 07:57

Morning team! I'd really appreciate some help please….

I have $305k to upgrade to a premium mid.

I'm thinking of going:

1- SPP to Ablett

2- SPP to Bont. This enables me to do a straight swap of Stewart to Llyod next week.

I've only got 9 trades left. I took a risk and went early on Ryan (for Otten).

So you think I should cough up the next $$ and get Ablett? Or go a slightly cheaper premium so I can do a straight swap for Llyod. I'm big on saving trades for finals but this year has just been one of those years…..

Thanks!

    Bradk · 17/06/2017 at 08:13

    These upgrades need to be done for you to reach full premium. Do it. Just make sure you leave at least 4-5 trades for injuries

      Bradk · 17/06/2017 at 08:14

      Depending on how many upgrades uou ha left I'd get ablett

    redherringfc · 17/06/2017 at 08:14

    9 trades says go Bont. You save a trade when getting Lloyd and you'll probably save a trade not having to worry when Ablett gets injured again.

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 08:18

    If Stewart is your D6 then go Bont & Lloyd for sure

    Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:24

    Option 2

    The Ranger · 17/06/2017 at 09:32

    Get Bont and then if you're lucky you might be able to luxury trade from a premo to an ultra premo later.

    One Touch Wonder · 17/06/2017 at 09:43

    Ablett will win the Brownlow this year

      Andy · 17/06/2017 at 12:25

      Thanks for the help guys! I appreciate it.

      I'm 1 defender, 2 mids and 1 forward off premium.

      I'm going Llyod, Bont, another premo mid then probably Heeney to finalise my team.

Bradk · 17/06/2017 at 08:10

When you start off like a dream with Danger (VC), Yeo, Goldstein and Roberton, but only have 15 playing this week. Dam supercoach

    TheBenchmark25 · 17/06/2017 at 08:50

    It makes sleeping a little easier knowing about your score
    I'm off to the exact same start brad but luckily have 18 players. 646/4

      Bradk · 17/06/2017 at 09:58

      Nice work mate. I just couldnt get any more players on the park. Steele didn't help. Im about to fall from top the 1000 i worked so hard to be in..

        TheBenchmark25 · 17/06/2017 at 10:04

        Oh that's a kick in the guts I could imagine how that would feel. I'm just inside the top 1000 aswell

IntheNickofTime · 17/06/2017 at 08:12

Being that Round 13 is such a pain for so many realistically what's a slightly above average score for this round do you think? Will 1900 be above average?

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 08:15

    1900 would be a dream score this week

      IntheNickofTime · 17/06/2017 at 08:21

      Well, the stars will have to align as my player projections are probably overs at the moment but if SC is kind to me (for once) this round I'll be looking at 1850. Fingers crossed (though Scooter hasn't helped)!

    Off The Bench · 17/06/2017 at 08:19

    Will definitely be above average, should be around the cut-off mark for the top 10% of weekly scores

      IntheNickofTime · 17/06/2017 at 08:32

      Well I'd love some positives this season and a top 10% score this week – could be my highlight! I made the top 11% last round which was nice as a below average SCer! Aiming for somewhere in the top 10% overall SCers for the season or to beat my best ranking so far which was around top 11K. Small goals, wish me luck!

      jamo · 17/06/2017 at 08:54

      I was in the top 4% with 1919 last week, 1900 would surely put you in top 2% this week

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:47

    I reckon 1800 will be above average honestly.

Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 08:22

Question on trading players who have the bye – can they still be traded whilst the last match tomorrow is being played (WB vs Melb)? For example can Otten still be traded for Ryan?

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 08:53

    I think all players are locked at the start of the last game

neil Demons Delight · 17/06/2017 at 08:58

why would you want to

    TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 09:31

    Dutch might want to get Ryan in this week slightly early, to bank cash, and the fact that trades revert back to two as of next the next round. Potentially could put him in a position to snare two upgrades next week.

      Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:42

      Why not just do it now though?

        TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 09:50

        Dutch might want to hold the trade for as long as possible just in case there are some late outs which impact his team. He can then decide if he needs to use that trade for a corrective manoevre which he might think is suddenly more important than getting in Ryan. If he trades Ryan in now, he can not reverse the trade if he has an unpleasant "late out" surprise. If he gets to the last match and all his players have played or are playing, he can get Ryan in with peace of mind.

          Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:58

          Correct weight

          Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:59

          True that.

        Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:53

        TopHawk's on the money, looking to potentially build my bank to >$500k so I can do a double upgrade next week. Apart from Otten, all my other cashcow culling options are playing this week and are needed to maintain 19/20 on the field (especially now with Scooter's score …). The added bonus is that those same cashcows will fatten up some more this week (Barret, Berry, SPP, Stewart etc) and need to decide whether Scooter needs to go next week as well. I'm playing mostly for League so don't mind getting to full premo a week or two later than others.

        Getting Doch this week which leaves me with 3 more premo's to get (I'm not counting Scooter or Steele as premo's, they are onfield at the moment for me). Targets are Lloyd, Gawn / Goldy, and Bont / Merret / Abblet. Scooter was always a stepping stone for me, still hoping Steele becomes F7/M9.

          TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 10:25

          I like your strategy. Its very strategic and has real purpose. I am slightly further advanced, but that comes with added risk which I am prepared to take. I love the buzz of going for rank. I have already culled Barrett last week and SPP/Otten/Steele have departed this week. I have upgraded those rooks for Dustin Martin and Tom J Lynch this week. (Ryan downgrade trade in) That leaves me with 2 premo upgrades to chase next week. Jake Lloyd barring injury is coming in for Tom Stewart or Berry. I would still have Greenwood, Cousins, (Probably Berry) and Ryan to finish the business. One more premo to get the week after and then Paddy Ryder to Max Gawn once he plays and bottoms out in price. That is subject to the supercoach gods being nice to me. Cheers

Dutch · 17/06/2017 at 09:37

Didn't see last night's game, how bad was Dunstan's calf injury, did he play out the match? If he doesn't get up for next week, may open up the door for Steele to come straight back in. Or maybe that's wishful thinking?

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:41

    Steele will probably come back in, Dunstan only played 65% of the game.

    TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 09:55

    Steele probably enjoyed a few beers at a pub after last Friday night after his poor effort, and was given a week off for his indiscretion. He will come back in next week IMO.

Ja191 · 17/06/2017 at 09:38

any news on if dusty is playing?

    TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 09:44

    Are there rumours swirling Dusty is a late out? This is the first I have heard of it.

      INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 09:53

      Left the track early. He will play. It was just click bait

        TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 09:59

        Thanks Pieman! I feel reassured! Just read that he has back troubles though? Or just more click bait?

          Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 10:02

          Check out the late mail recap on AFL website. There's an odd video that really shows nothing. I wouldn't captain him or anything though just to be safe?

          TheBenchmark25 · 17/06/2017 at 10:02

          Can't remember whe said it but a Richmond official said something like yep he'll be out there and ready to go

Saundo · 17/06/2017 at 09:44

Missed Danger, put C on Martin, Lynch, Dixon or Docherty? Or Bont?

    Whatyasmokin · 17/06/2017 at 09:52

    Talk of back troubles for Martin. Docherty would be fairly safe I reckon.

      TOPHAWK1 · 17/06/2017 at 10:07

      I VC'd Danger going into Dusty. Had Danger spudded, I would have been a bit spooked also with Dusty having a little niggle. Despite him playing, (He bloody better, I tell ya) I might have changed it to the Doc. In the Doc you can trust.

    INPieman · 17/06/2017 at 10:10

    Doch

    Col · 17/06/2017 at 10:15

    Martin or Doc. Dixon might go great or garbage.

    Ja191 · 17/06/2017 at 10:34

    lock the doch

    BlueNath · 17/06/2017 at 13:19

    Go Martin. He is fine! Doch does not have the ceiling of Martin

The Buttonsticher · 17/06/2017 at 11:50

Traded S. Selwood in this week and put a $100 on J. Selwood for brownlow. Pricks!

Ben · 17/06/2017 at 14:17

Hello Bolton! 48 first quarter

    The_Bird · 17/06/2017 at 16:28

    Was good – didnt see him after that though…64 about where you would expect

BrownlowBoy · 17/06/2017 at 14:46

Bud may be in a little trouble with the MRP as well.

Ben · 17/06/2017 at 14:55

Bolton

Ben · 17/06/2017 at 14:56

Rance, Kennedy, hanners, and nank what a mare

BlueNath · 17/06/2017 at 15:00

If Sydney lose, they are effectively out of the hunt and their general team motivation could drop away. Might make me re-think my Lloyd recruiting strategy

    Sause · 17/06/2017 at 16:55

    Rubbish. You will be the only one who won't have him. You will weaken.

The BONT · 17/06/2017 at 15:31

What to do with RANCE

    johnno2908 · 17/06/2017 at 15:43

    Just scored 43 points in 7 minutes to be 57 at 3/4 time! Was thinking this week was a write off… still probably is as I have JPK as well

    The BONT · 17/06/2017 at 15:43

    Hold that thought Rance went from 11 at Q2 to 58 at 3Q time

    johnno2908 · 17/06/2017 at 16:02

    Just notched a ton with 9 minutes left. Unbelievable

    Russty_ · 17/06/2017 at 16:22

    Keep him Bont…he's good 🙂

BuddyHell · 17/06/2017 at 15:48

haven't understood why people have been saying buddy is a fantastic option and a top 6 fwd and to get him in over likes of greene heeney or even lynch… he pumps out a 100+ every 4 weeks and inbetween them are 70s and today a 24 at 3QT…. i hope people wake up after this week.

    Relton · 17/06/2017 at 16:10

    agreed BH, people get caught up in the hype of the big man and forget is below par scores in between them rare tons! He can turn a game on its head like no other but you need consistency in your players. he isnt that!

    Hairy. Head · 17/06/2017 at 16:53

    Ever had a bad day pal. You are obviously too clever to get him.

      BuddyHell · 17/06/2017 at 16:59

      buddy has 3 bad days before he has a gone one hairy mclairy…

The_Bird · 17/06/2017 at 16:04

Come on – need more of that JPK! – You cant be one of my scores thrown away

    BrownlowBoy · 17/06/2017 at 16:18

    Cracked the ton. Last quarter was massive.

      The_Bird · 17/06/2017 at 16:26

      Yep…I am a fantastic motivator. At the start of the Last it was not looking good for The Birds. But then…….Newman…Ton…Heeney…Ton…..Parker…Ton…JPK….Ton….Even Nank added some points..

      At this stage looking good for 1900+ – Currently 1005 pts (c) with 12 players left – One of which will join Scooter on the discard pile

BrownlowBoy · 17/06/2017 at 16:18

Such a Richmond thing to do.

The BONT · 17/06/2017 at 16:20

Alex Rance
Q1: 4
Q2: 10
Q3: 57
Q4: 110
Second half got him 100 points

    johnno2908 · 17/06/2017 at 16:25

    He was on 14 with less than 10 mins to go in the 3rd.

Moosehead · 17/06/2017 at 16:51

Deserved every point

    Tony · 18/06/2017 at 16:35

    How manypoints did he get for staging?????
