Seb Ross. He is on the rise!

INPieman

I'd rather role the dice on a high ceiling player. Big POD but

TOPHAWK1

I agree. Ross is definately growing in stature and is getting more consistent, but his ceiling not that high yet. Not for me this year, next year could be a different story. Dom Sheed at the eagles is another one to watch for next year IMO.

INPieman

If Dom Sheed gets his DPP back he's going to be appealing

Northerner

That would be nice but unlikely given role he's playing

Jim

What's a dip?

Jim

DPP…

Russty_

Dual position player.

Unstoppable Joel

Thoughts on Fyfe to Ablett boys ?

FCAbel

I like it. Weighing up this trade or whe to Lynch.

INPieman

I don't like the fact it costs 115k

Beezneez

Fyfe to Beams will cost $70K. I'm doing WHE to Lynch which would have been Heeney who came in for Steele. If you've got Sloane a trade to Ablett will cost 1K. That could be a crazy trade but Sloane's output could be affected by tags and his price is set to plummett whereas Ablett is set to rise >$600K.

Johnny

I like ablett but to move on fyfe at his current price is too risky surely.. if trades arent an issue then go for it

#getonred

Bringing in Lachie Neale next week, the 55 falls out of the rolling average so 565k is very cheap. For my last midfield spot, who do i go for out of Pendels, Jelwood or Bont?

Whatyasmokin

Pendles.

BlueNath

Gibbs

ChasingFinals17

I wouldn't, not consistent, great player though and very influential

Jtd

Pendles

jez_m

Pretty happy with the trades I pulled. Yeo (117) in for Steele, Roberton (119) in for Shaw and Mountford (59) in for Myers all solid. I'd be surprised if we don't see more from Mountford? Looked pretty good last night.

INPieman

Your game picking a Brad Scott rookie Jez

jez_m

It was a risk Pieman but without him I would have only fielded 16. Thought he was pretty good personally so hopefully he keeps his spot. Totally agree on the Anderson trade, that was a smart one by Hawthorn.

Whatyasmokin

Was tagging Steven I think, I didn't notice him much although that's probably because I don't know what he looks like 😉

His stats look good and there's others on the chopping block before him ie Jed Anderson……..

INPieman

I thought it was amusing when North gave up a first round pick for Jed Anderson. He's a spud & a half. The Hawks used that pick for Ryan Burton. There is a clear winner in that deal

Stirlsy

Had Mountford to start he tagged that night too, i thought he went ok then we didn't see him again till last night.

JDP

16 trades left and need a bit of advice:

SPP to Ablett, Zorko or Bont?

Cheers

SC_Kev7

Really like Zorko. As much as I love Gaz just can't trust his shoulder

manolaki

hope you went zorko

ChasingFinals17

16!?

TBone

Hey guys, quick question. Sandi to Stef Martin or Sandi to Heeney/Lynch? Thanks!

manolaki

hope you went heeney

TBone

Oh yes I did!

INPieman

Dusty is playing. No late changes

Top hawk

Right on the money pie man. Cheers

TOPHAWK1

Not an imposter. Comes up like that when I message on my mobile phone. Back on the laptop now.

INPieman

You can be logged in off multiple devices

CoachDamo

WHE is going – still can't decide between Buddy and Heeney.

My gut says Heeney. Buddy has been up and down and doesn't seem to score well unless he kicks 4-5 goals +. Anyone else with a similar dilemma?

Ja191

I've had buddy from the start, he hasn't been bad but hasn't been good. would chose heeney any day

TOPHAWK1

I started with Buddy, but grabbed Tom J Lynch for Steele this week. At $446K he was the premo bargain of the week IMO. If I had the luxury of an extra $52K I would have grabbed Heeney no question. Heeney will be more consistent than Buddy without the mega high ceiling Franklin has. Heeney will likely give you scores of 114, 99, 125, 105, 127, 95 whilst Buddy probably will give you 85, 113, 76, 154, 122, 57. Heeney for me. Cheers

CoachDamo

I've been thinking the same thing. Looking at Buddy's stats, he's been consistent, kicking goals, 15-20 touches but that often only translates into 70-85 SC points.

TOPHAWK1

Yeah. Buddy is great to watch and provides a big presence during games, but more often than not, his scores are underwhelming. Its been frustrating me all season despite not being agro at him for his efforts. If you do decide to go Heeney I reckon he will deliver for you. Good luck.

CoachDamo

Glad I went Heeney over Bud!

TOPHAWK1

Bloody ripper decision!! Heeney is a gem. I traded in Dusty and he delivered a 110 odd today as well. But this round will be absolute carnage with Buddy's 48. (He is starting to annoy me now), Nank 70, Hanners 70. Rance came good with 110 and Bolton went to sleep with a 64. I will be lucky to get 1700 from here as I am only playing 17.

Beezneez

I was set to do WHE for Heeney until Steele was dropped so I did Steele to Heeney last night. WHE to Lynch this afternoon (looked at Buddy but his scores are like a yo-yo). Another option I looked at was Goldy to ruck (Nank DPP) but that bird has flown and the $ wouldn't allow my preferred trade next round. .

TRIGGER HAPPY

Sitting at the G
about to watch the fab 4 – Parker, JPK, hanners and Heeney take on the tiges.
The dusty show.

TOPHAWK1

I am jealous! I am sitting here in Perth Suburbia watching the game on my phone. LOL Not a bad quarter by the Bolton lightning?

Ja191

bolton will be a star

Jim_bob321

Should've gotten Bolton……………

TOPHAWK1

Shai Bolton!!! You little pocket rocket!! 2 goals and 49SC at quarter time. WOW

hedski

To think I was worried about him not outscoring Scooter!!

TOPHAWK1

He has left scooter in the rear vision mirror. He is 80 SC at half time. I swear he has got the number 4 on the back of his guernsey. Dusty could only manage 50SC. Bloody Hanners needs to pull his finger out in the second half. Dished up garbage. 20 SC

hedski

I have Parker, 52 at halftime, Rance going for Scooters spud award by the look of it.

Defying_Madness

Looks the goods, very happy I have him

DavidSA

thats great cause I have both Scooter and Bolton best 19 but now Rance want to fk me over

Defying_Madness

Rance, Nank, Buddy, Hanners and JPK all need to step up. Heeney and Lloyd are doing ok. Only saving grace in this game so far is Bolton, looking like I will have a very low score this week.

Russty_

Bloody Rance!…1 lousy point, good at giving away frees today.

Ryan

Was forced into trading Bolton in half way through the Eagles vs Geelong game when i found out Melican was omitted. Turns out the supercoach gods like me after all!!!

DavidSA

60% footy gods 35% football knowledge 5% skill sums up SuperCoach

Ryan

100% agree! Too bad JPK and Nank is spudding it

Defying_Madness

Buddy reported

hedski

Ah Budwah…can't help yourself, have a few weeks off son.

Defying_Madness

Brought him in last week also…

hedski

Maybe not as bad as first thought

INPieman

Defying you don't have Gary do you?

Defying_Madness

Which Gary?

INPieman

Bald Gary

Defying_Madness

Nah I don't have him

DavidSA

Omfg! What a round!
Scooter hammy
Rance punce
Buddy getting 2 weeks easy

My team burns now

INPieman

I'll add Jelwood may get a holiday as well. Train wreck of a round. Mountford looking like one of my better scorers

Ja191

think he'll be off with a fine or 1 week at most, not heaps in it

garfield_da_cat

Buddy will escape with a fine if that. I'm no swans supporter, but anyone can see there is a strong argument there that Buddy was trying to collide with Menudue's shoulder and not his head. Buddy should definitely go to the tribunal instead of just accepting an early plea where he may cop 2 weeks.
To all Buddy owners out there i'm da_cat and i say hold.

INPieman

Jesus! Hanners must be off the p*ss again

TOPHAWK1

Hanners has been BAD, and I mean BAD in that first half. Hopefully, they will slip him a mid strength tinny during the half time break.

That hit by Franklin on Rance looks be primarily around the shoulder not the head. Careless contact? Looks like Buddy might end up with a fine and at worst one week.

Defying_Madness

I started with Rance and Shaw

DavidSA

Damn

Skinny McSkinny

Last night I was very annoyed that Steele being dropped forced me to trade cousins for Bolton just to get 18. Not looking so bad atmo

INPieman

He looks like your name

Skinny McSkinny

hahaha now he's going backwards with every touch

DavidSA

Who would of though Bolton and Prestia would be only 2 players head and shoulders above everyone else in this game at half time?

Others fluffing around 40-55 pts

TOPHAWK1

Spud central. Alex Rance needs to seriously have a look in the mirror at half time. If he does not lift in the second half with a few of his mates like Nank, Hanners, JPK, and Buddy I reckon scores this round will enter the twilight zone.

Russty_

At least he's redeemed himself now, his score's not terrible anymore, great second half from him 🙂

Nuggety

Bringing in Bolton last night makes me feel better about bringing in Lloyd a week early with his high BE… Might just have a chance for the league win.. 🙂

BlueNath

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

Derek

But if they win…………,

BlueNath

My Lloyd trading strategy is back on!!

TRIGGER HAPPY

Buddy reported.
Looked head high

Derek

I was forced to trade in Bolton so I could afford Docherty this week.

I do have Rance, Butler, Nank, Hanners, JPK and Buddy putting on a Menapoo show.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Not sure what the bloods had at half time
Gone bang bang 3rd qtr

INPieman

Vodka

Ja191

nah its richmond, we always do it

Defying_Madness

Did Rance just get 50 points this quarter? Man he is really crushing Franklin

hedski

Looks like Bud the spud today.

Defying_Madness

Should have went with Greene last week instead. I never pick key forwards but for some reason I did this time.

Russty_

I've got him, and JPK onfield…potato pair today.

Defying_Madness

I have Hanners and Nank also… Terrible game for supercoach

Joshua

Traded Steele to Buddy over Heeney… Whyyyyyyyyyyy does this have to happen to meeeeeeeeee.

Joshua

On the other hand I was short on cash and that 10k odd difference might sure up Lloyd next week.

DavidSA

rance half time 12 sc is he really on 97 right now!!??!!??!

Defying_Madness

He just tonned up!

DavidSA

0.o

Russty_

Don't write him off too early Dave…Rancey boy is a good choice 🙂

Top Gun

109. Know know how the fook he did that but well done

JEL

Was looking at upgrading Newman to a premo, but he is giving me every reason to hang on to him.

Might be 1 less upgrade to worry about.

Hoping Buddy can at least crack the 50!!

ChasingFinals17

He would be the last player to upgrade I think. But he is averaging enough to be a keeper

TOPHAWK1

Alex Rance. I salute you. I have just watched the best half of football by a full back EVER. Extraordinary. You will stay in my side no matter what.

Defying_Madness

JPK tonnes up also. A game full of redemption

Russty_

Wow I didn't expect JPK to come good today, bonus!..and what a half from Rance!, awesome.

TOPHAWK1

It could have been so much worse. But how the hell do the tigers always manage to find new ways to lose. Rance must be gutted after that effort. Tigers supporters must be absolutely spewing at the moment.

No one

You are clearly too young to remember Southby and Dench.

Russty_

Bolton disappointing after the first half, done bugger all since then.

hedski

I think he dropped 4 points after half time Russty, Buddy has just kept Scooter off field unless he gets scaled down.

Derek

He was 80 at half time.

I got home and only watched the second half. Did not see him once

Derek

Butler 17 was awful

Dutch

Correct, went backwards in 2nd half, was hoping for a juicy price rise

B-rian

He is a good player but no tank yet

ProTravo

Bolton vanished in the second half!
Lloyd vs Newman in SC defenses gets more interesting..

manolaki

I was going to go Newman to Lloyd next week. I am starting to think I can save a trade here

hedski

Same Manny.

hedski

Poor old Tigers find another way to lose.

TOPHAWK1

Just when you think the tigers are about to break through, they blow a 36 point second quarter lead and crap their pants again. Gee wizz. Crouching one will be ready to string himself up on a lightpole I reckon.

Ja191

Any team besides Richmond with our season so far would be first, 4/5 losses have been chokes

Pman

The week I trade Buddy in (for Steele) he stinks it up with 48 crappy points and a report. D'oh!

Joshua

I feel your pain!

Joshua

What will Lloyd drop to after posting a ton on the dot?

Russty_

About 410k I think.

Dutch

I think Russty is closer, on Gold he was forecast to score 78 which would have seen his price drop to $402k …. whatever the exact price, it will be the lowest we' can get him for – 15% plus of teams will jump on him this week I reckon

Defying_Madness

Fun Fact every time I trade out a rookie they tonne up. Otten, Marchbank, WHE, Newman, Taranto have been the examples so far. Let's see if SPP can continue the trend.

INPieman

I traded spp this week as well. Certain to go large

Defying_Madness

Urgh should have traded Barret and kept SPP. Bad call on my part

Top Gun

54 prior to half time. Lol.

Derek

Same here

Pman

If that's the case then would you mind trading out either Parsons or Cousins next week as I could do with a decent score from these rookie spuds!

Defying_Madness

Don't have Cousins but Barret and Berry may be going next week. Barret has officially died, 1 point at qtr time

INPieman

Barrett has tripled his score in that quarter

Randomcliche2

He was dropped….multiple times…..hopefully he bought doc because that is the only possible saving grace.

Defying_Madness

Sadly I don't own Doc

Swans2012

Don't you just love to hate this game…..you bust your arse and claw your way up to 960 overall, then just when you think you've got it under control……BAM your teams a sack of potatoes and your on your way doowwwwwnnnn…..on a positive note the swannies found a way to win (or Richmond found a way to lose….or both). Can't wait to have a full team back next week……

Randomcliche2

Not going to crack 1800 after a projected 2k. Horrible. Perhaps that last line needs a rework. Buddy. Duckwood. Scooter. Sorry.

Swans2012

I'll struggle to hit 1700, ah well, not going to panic and trade… although it's tempting

INPieman

Same. Thanks buddy Hanners Nank also scooter Jelwood parsons. Disaster round

DavidSA

SPP 4 hb,1 k, 1 tackle 20% DE really worth 20 pts??

Rob

Rocky spending a lot of time forward. Not good

INPieman

Very low numbers for rocky & only 1 tackle. He's really struggling

Derek

I've not had a dislocated shoulder, but I guess they hurt

INPieman

Nothing a few jabs couldn't fix. Where's Danky

Rob

Don't think it's because of the injury. More that Fagan wants to run the younger guys through the middle

Don't Blush Baby

Stef – 1 contested possession, knock to the throat but didn't start in the Ruck anyway ,seriously

manolaki

Big question…is Newman a keeper???

Forget the fact that he is a rookie. If he is averaging 90+ and consistently doing so, why not keep?

Someone convince me to trade him please!

Derek

Terlich mk2

manolaki

Was going Newman to Lloyd next week but now not so sure

INPieman

Newman played a great game today. Was pivotol in the win. I won't be getting rid of him

B-rian

I certainly wish I hadn't traded him when he had his bye.

Keep him as long as possible

whatyasmokin

Reads the play well, knows his role. Keeper at this stage.

manolaki

My last rookies are Bolton, Berry, Cousins, Schareneberg, Ryan, SPP, Greenwood and Newman.
Mid pricers or borderline premiums Nank, Steele, H Shaw, Fyfe, Sandi, Scooter.

Who should be getting the chop next week?

Other than SPP and Newman (who I want to keep) the others have not peaked. Do you upgrade any of the mid pricers or almost premiums or hang on? Shaw and Steele are my worst two in my best 22. That is based on averages so Newman is in my best 22 also.

hedski

What the hell has happened to Barrett?
Was planning to nek SPP next week then Barrett the week after, change of plans it seems.
I'll be holding Newman as D6 for now and thinking hard about Lloyd.

Dutch

Yes Barret may have to go first – Bris up against GWS next week doesn't bode well for Barret, and SPP may have a bigger price rise left in him (although up against Coll next week doesn't guarantee him a decent score either)

Pete

Thinking of holding berry as a backup swing, but need to get a mid/def rookie in the miss to make it happen.
Only one I can see is hibberd from norf, or possibly witherden from brissie.
Who will be most likely to get games?
Are there any rookies I'm missing?

Dutch

Berry will be a dilemma for many – looking like an ordinary score today, and Brisbane have some difficult games coming up (GWS, Geel, Rich in the next 4 games, then West Coast in R19 and Doggies in R20)…. but their R21/22/23 are looking not too difficult and only one away game in the last four rounds.

hedski

Berry will be squeezed into some sweet Ryan juice next week then Barrett upgraded.

Defying_Madness

Exact same trades here. They are ready for the slaughter

Dutch

My current plan is Barret to Ryan via Berry to mids, re-opens my def-mid swingset …. does mean Berry hangs around for a while in my team though ….

B-rian

Don't get the guy from brissie. You won't be able to loophole

TigerNut

Good choice. Hold your plums hahah

The BONT

Alex Rance
Q1: 4
Q2: 10
Q3: 57
Q4: 109
Second half got him 99 points

Skinny McSkinny

If his name was bottompally that would've been 200+

Derek

Do you have a quarterly breakdown on Bolton?

Wattsieesq

Bolton:
Q1: 48
Q2: 79
Q3: 68
Q4: 63

Skinny McSkinny

Chad's Back

Scholesy_518

Did rocky stay in the rooms at half time pigging out on lollies, gone missin'

Dutch

Not watching the game, but thought my computer was frozen, Rocky's score didn't move for about half a quarter at one point …

Pauly Walnuts

Keep racking up those points SPP , cos your off to the abattoirs next week, thanks for your services, much appreciative

Jim_bob321

Why get rid of him?!?!?!?!

Derek

Traded SPP >>> Bolton. Needed the cash. Really like SPP

INPieman

Wonderful. Rocky is stuffed again. Didn't touch the ball & unsighted in the 3rd quarter. Clearly injured again. Add to the misery of this round

Derek

I think he has been on bench since half time. He is stuffed

Randomcliche2

The fox Telecast last week in change rooms showed the physio cutting the tape off Rocky. He looked in serious discomfort. That doesn't heal in a week. Hmmmm….currently sitting in my team….

Holty

What happened to stef martin early? Only started watching the 2nd half and is competing well against Ryder so struggling to see how Ryder has had so many hitouts.

Russty_

He didn't even Ruck in the first, Smith was doing most of it..Martin was at centre half back I think.

Holty

Thanks Russty. That explains a bit.

Russty_

No worries mate, I don't get their Coach, when he plays Martin lone wolfing, he's a gun, when he plays Martin and Smith he has two spud Ruckmen who both got beaten anyway.

Top Gun

Ryder killing Martin

Top Gun

Tough to score well with only 18 players and spud attacks by Franklin, SSelwood and Barrett.

Dutch

Chose Rocky over Zorko last week -burnt me two weeks running …..

Russty_

Straight swap to Zorko this week?

Will

That's what i'm doing, Rocky does not seem himself.

INPieman

Yes

Dan

I'm tempted, but do we give Rocky another chance? He seems to struggle against Port Adelaide. Last 3 scores: 41, 81, 53 – and now today 59.

Dutch

Very tempting indeed

patrick365

Not taking danger's score as vc and rolling the dice on T.Lynch….its the bye rounds, I don't give a f***

Joshua

Just wait till my blues give the suns a touch up!

Ja191

nononononononononononononono

Deeboss

haha a bit risky…. but I like it.

Russty_

Take danger's score Patrick..Lynch could score 50 or get injured in the 1st minute.

Russty_

If you did it…your captain's score is currently zero lol

patrick365

I backed out at the last minute, thank god you lads talked me out of it hahahahaha!!

Russty_

Good to hear mate…that would've been insane lol

Rabbits16

accidently didnt VC danger so plugged the captain on Dockerty. yoieww…

Skinny McSkinny

Par score 1600? I hope

Deeboss

I'd be lucky to get 1600…

Russty_

I'm hoping for about 1850-1900 too..fingers crossed.

BlueNath

A lot of premos have been down so far. But some always seem to avoid the carnage. Averaging 1800ea over the 3 byes is about par I would think.

Deeboss

traded out R. Gray for Ablett when he spudded with a 44…. SMH

Holty

They say never trade premos but honestly if i had Gray, i would of done the same.

Defying_Madness

I agree with you on that. Been way too inconsistent this year for a midfielder.

Russty_

..and injured, Gazzas going pretty good now though.

Richard

R.Gray via K Hinkley can't be trusted as he can spend a lot of time up forward likewise for Wingard

Deeboss

Now Gazza's on 28 @ HT…. SC Gods at their finest work.

Derek

That was the game I've been waiting from Ryder all season. Very happy with how he went.

Archie is killing Martin. Hopefully today was the end

Russty_

I don't get what their Coach is thinking…Stef doesn't need backup..it turns him into a spud.

Mavs17

Martin went off in the 1st quarter for pretty much all of it. So he didnt end up to bad after the start he had

Deeboss

Ryder is only $466K

Defying_Madness

Thanks for nothing Parsons, Spuddy, Hanners, Barret, Berry and Nank. Now watch Kreuzer go and get injured to make this week even worse.

manolaki

What happened to Beams and Rocky? Did they play the second half???

manolaki

Next week Rocky will get 190

Russty_

Yeah they played…they were both loitering around on the field somewhere there.

INPieman

If rocky was on the ground he was hiding behind the goal post

CoachDamo

I hardly saw Rocky at all after half time. Not sure how much time he spent on ground – I think he was hiding up forward.

B-rian

Very interested to see how Liam jones goes tonight. Tough assignment marking Lynch or wright. Another ton and he'll be in my team next week

Richard

Zorko the magnificent you beautiful beast of a man. Get on or forever never doubt this man.

Mavs17

Doch already on 43 in first QTR! OMG

Finnius123

57

Hawkas2017

57 now wow#LockDaDoc

Russty_

57 at the end of it…thank you very much!

Finnius123

If I was one of the 68.7% of the competition who didn't own Docherty I would be balling my eyes out right about now. The bloke is on track to average at least 115 for the season. Every time he tons up it would be a stab in the guts (by the end of the season you will have bled to death)

Defying_Madness

I am one of those sad people who don't own him. I should be able to afford him next week. It pains me every weekend

TOPHAWK1

The Doc is at work again folks.

Just a lazy 55 SC at quarter time.

If you don't have him, you better get on board fast and pay market price. The train is about to leave the station.

Leeds17

I think 1650ish for me but hopfully Bont can find some form and push that up a bit. rough week

The BONT

Shai Bolton
Q1: 48

Q4: 64
For Derek

Derek

Thanks.

Pretty amazing.

Skinn McThin

Amazing! In numerology those numbers spell spud

Ja191

their targeting ablett's shoulder, dog tactic

Jim_bob321

No they're not… they are targeting ABLETT, not his shoulder bud

No one

Woof.

Defying_Madness

I brought in Kreuzer over Doch since I planned on getting them both in anyway. I am going to have an early night sleep.

Defying_Madness

I spoke a bit soon I am very happy now. He had to crush my other ruckman Witts though

The Ranger

Didn't he get him in this week?
Wish I had.
Might have to sacrifice Newman to get him.

Derek

I don't want to talk about it……………

Derek

I got Ablett instead….. ok!

Had the cash all ready to go. Traded SPP to Bolton to have cash for Myers to Docherty…… why didn't I??!

My eye has this awful uncontrollable flick in it tonight.

Derek

Is that right….. Doc 90 at half time?
