Get Lloyd and pocket 125k for the next rainy day or bring in Roberton and have 20k in the tank?

Deeboss

Lloyd

INPieman

The 125k might net you Gawn without making a downgrade & save a trade. Also DPP

SF4

Lloyd

Bargain

Of course lloyd, 100k+ cheaper and 99+ average if you take out the game he was concussed

BlueNath

If you want to be like everyone else, Lloyd. But you suggested Roberton for a reason. Sometimes when you back your instincts in the caper you reap the big rewards. But sometimes you end up with shit figs too.

Rocksta

Hogwash!
They are both guns and for $100K plus less you have to go Lloyd.
He's only that cheap because of his first qtr concussion and 4 SC points.

Whatyasmokin

Yep 9 scores between 92 and 114. Has an 84 and an 89, plus the concussion round. Probably the most consistent player I've ever seen.

Danners

Prepare for the next rainy day

Russty_

Take Lloyd and the cash Finnius, Remember, Roberton can spud it at anytime, due to being in a spudly team…my Team hahah

Deeboss

You beauty!

Sauce

Hello Neale!! Bye Stewart πŸ™

BigBuggars

Decisions, decisions …. Have 10 trades. Need 1 premo M,F & D to finalise team, but can prob only get 2 of those with trades left. Want Lloyd. Have enough cash to straight swap Stewart or Barrett leaving 20 – 40K in bank. Was also planning on keeping Scooter as M8 for as long as possible, but with injury cloud could also go Scooter to Ryan, via Berry or Hib Jr., to maximise cash for next upgrade. Also have, and would prefer to ditch, Myers, for Ryan. But doesn't leave quite the same war chest. Can anybody offer some clarity to the swirling confusion in front of me?

SC_Kev7

Lloyd is just too good to pass up at that price. Consistent as buggery.

Big call to make on Scooter. Forget his price gen now, you want reliable scorers on the bench as finals approach. Myers is not that

BigBuggars

Too true. Thanks for the input SC_Kev7.

matthewspangher

selwood>neale or next week selwood>sloane? who do we think will come home stronger?

BigBuggars

Neale for me, esp with Sandi coming back. Selwood now listed as a test for this week.

Tommo09

Stewart to a 102k rookie???
Also, is it worth trading Nank, Fyfe or Sandi as well?
9 trades and no cash before trades

Thoughts???

H Lee

i assume you already have luke ryan?

Tommo09

Yes already have Ryan

SC_Kev7

What's your reasoning behind trading Stewart to a non player?

Hold off for now. Gawn in a few weeks would be a good get for Nank or Sandi.

Tommo09

Was just doing it gain maximum cash for upgrades as I will need to upgrade Sandi Hannan and S.Selwood at least

Whatyasmokin

You've waited this long for Sandi, if not named this week he's got big problems. Nank second, don't trade Fyfe.

The Ranger

If you're not trading for a player then hold him unless you think he's gonna bleed cash

LoganJosh7

DEF: roberton, laird, Adam's, hardbrow, hibberd, doch – sberg, berry
MID: ablett, fyfe, trelor, neale, danger, martin, bont, PP – fisher, Myers, cousins.
FWD: jjk, roo, dahl, roughy, WHE, Greene, – gwood, parsons
RUCK: martin, sandi – preuss

Wew first time posting my average team. So my question is, who to trade out for ryan? Fisher myers or berry?

Berry is best money wise but also the best backup in case of injuries as has the best JS and is pretty consistant.

Would love some input.

INPieman

How many trades left? You have bench players playing. And lots of them. Cash out the highest value. Berry to Ryan & WHE to Yeo without seeing your cash & trades

LoganJosh7

Ah sorry pie.
10 trades left as i already did barrett to neale.
L

INPieman

I'd consider Parsons to Josh Deluca-Cardillo (Freo) 102k Mid/Fwd so you can loop Greenwood & WHE & generate some money for next week. But Berry to Ryan also looks good & gives more cash. Really tough call. At least you have some trades & cash on the pine

BlueNath

Awesome call Pieman on JDC. If you have less than 10 trades then cash gen starts to become less relevant making non-playing DPP rookies a vital way of covering outs (injuries/suspensions) and creates valuable loophole options for our playing bench players who may go large

INPieman

JDC may also sneak his way into the team & be handy later. I look at Alex Witherden in the same vein. Lions & Freo generally play late so the loop option is handy regardless

LoganJosh7

yeah my strategy is sorta revolving around having a rookie with great JS in fwd/mid/def as a good late season injury backup.
So will wait on selection as per usual πŸ™‚

Cant Decide

Neale Over Merrett?

LoganJosh7

Neale just for me. Has a higher ceiling

Whatyasmokin

Can't lose either way really.

Jake.B

Merrett for consistency and also a solid 130-140 every now and then. Neale if you like rollercoasters

The Ranger

Do you need Ryan? No point bringing in rookies unless its for cash generation now.
Berry to Junker maybe?

Pman

"Pyanamese Shit Figs" Gold!

B-SC

I have 10 trades left and 148K in the bank.

Thinking of holding trades for a couple of weeks to generate money.

DEF: Doch Laird Simpson Rance Shaw Hibberd (Berry Ryan)
MID: Danger Z.Merrett Pendles Oliver Bont Adams Fyfe SPP (Pickett Cousins Freeman)
RUCK: Martin Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Yeo Macrae Dahl Buddy Lynch(GCS) Greenwood(ADELAIDE) (Bolton Eddy)

Thoughts would be greatly appreciated .

poloko48

An idea here but take it or leave it as it's a bit of a luxury trade:
SPP & Berry out, Lloyd & Mountford in, leaves you $254K cash + fwd/def swing. Getting Lloyd now is a must IMHO, even if you're full def premo.

Boner of Contention

Agree on moving SPP and Berry B-SC. Scharenberg plus JPK perhaps?

Danny

Josh Kelly or Lachie Neale?

Wayo

Kelly is injured mate

Danny

Ahh, ok thanks Wayo

Jake.B

Kelly had sore ribs and may not play. Had him from the start what a gem

ChasingFinals17

Team is just about full KEEPER with 11 trades left and 57k in the bank
Not sure exactly what to do. Wish i didnt keep Sandi and traded him to Kreuzer
DEF: Doch, Laird, Simo, Howe, Newman Stewart (Scharenberg, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Jelwood, Pendles, Murph, Bont, Yeo, Adams, Rockcliff (Fisher, Myers, Cousins)
RUC: Sandi, Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Franklin, Greene, Kennedy, Greenwood (Butler, Stewart)

Will trade out a FWD rookie like Greenwood and a defender rookie like Stewart and then sub both Adams to defence and Yeo to the FWD line to get two more premo mids (this will happen over time)

poloko48

I'd hold for the moment, not much you can do until your rookies fatten up more. Unless you want to trade Newman, swing Adams, but then who do you bring in @ $485K? Maybe Lloyd?

Whatyasmokin

Yep you had enough trades to move on Sandi as soon as alarm bells rung. Oh well. Maybe Gawn later?

Isn't Butler totally cooked? Trade him for the collingwood kid callum brown?

Ja191

Scooter listed for a test. Should only be out 1-2 hopefully

poloko48

Let's hope so otherwise it's chop chop chop….

Jake.B

Trained well today could potentionally play this week… doubt it though

Joshua

If i have any trades left in the grand final (if I make it) would it be a good idea to go Lynch to Gray? Port vs Suns and Gray could go crazy while Lynch goes missing.

poloko48

Yep but who knows with this crazy season, Lynch could kick 10!

Whatyasmokin

Or gary could get tagged and Lynch takes contested marks out side the 50 all day like Reiwoldt and bags 4-5.

Millsy999

Stewart to Ryan, Scooter to Neale.

Team will then be;
Def – Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Shaw, Newman, Harbrow (Ryan, McInnes)
Mid – Danger, Neale, JPK, Murphy, Wines, Oliver, TMitch, Fyfe (Cousins, D.Lloyd, C.Brown)
Ruck – Witts, Nank
Fwd – Dahl, Macrae, Heeney, Greene, Buddy, Yeo (Greenwood, Parsons)

Leaves 8 trades and 180k in the bank.

Nank to Gawn in a week or two, and an upgrade of 1 defender if possible, leaving 5/6 trades heading into finals.

Thoughts community?

poloko48

I'd hold Scooter but I have cover with Jake Lloyd. He'll only miss 1-2 and still a chance to be M8 for the remainder of the season. I'd look at upgrading Witts or Nank to Kreuzer first.

Will

Neale or jelwood?

poloko48

Jelwood every day of the week for mine

JJF

Mountford or Callum Brown?

Jim_bob321

I went Callum Brown

poloko48

Neither if you can avoid it, JS not great with either I wouldn't have thought…

B T

Cal Brown, should get a few games for the next month.

Mike

Heres my team, 10 trades left, $251k in the bank

DEF: Doch, Laird, Adams, Shaw, Hibberd, STewart (Berry & Scharenberg)
MID: Danger, Titch, Pendles, Bont, J.Kennedy, Fyfe, Treloar, S.Selwood (Myers, Cousins, Fischer)
RUCK: Martin, Nank (Cameron)
FWD: Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Heeney, Greenwood (Bolton, Eddy)

Was thinking this week of upgrading Stewart to Lloyd & downgrading Berry to Ryan.
That'd leave me with 8 trades and $341k for any emergency trades needed… thoughts??

poloko48

Prob best you can do atm, still 2 premos short if you discount Scooter as a premo.
Mind you that's a lot of cash in the bank this time of year…

Mike

Depending how far away Scooter is, next week he can turn into Neale or any other premo. was saving trades for a few weeks before spending the $$$

Cold_Case

What if you hang on to Stewart at D8. Trade Berry to Lloyd. Trade a mid rookie to Ryan via swing. This will allow you to play lloyd in M8 till scooter plays. Otherwise u will have to play a crap rookie at M8. At least Stewart is scoring well, shouldn't cost you to many points.

Dutch

That's exactly what I'm considering for the same reason ColdCase outlined – in my case it's Barret who will make way for Ryan ….

poloko48

Managed 5363 over the byes so just short of 1800 average. My ranking though jumped from a p1$$ poor 33209 to a more respectable (but still poor) 21282.

Going for something a bit different this week – really want Lloyd but have full def premo. So will get him in as M8 to cover Scooter while he's out.

Trades this week:
OUT Barrett IN Ryan
OUT Myers IN Lloyd

Leaves 8 trades $131K and the following team:

DEF: Doch, Adams, Simmo, Howe, Rance, Heater (Stewart, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Jelwood, Pendles, JPK, Fyfe, Treloar, Parker, Lloyd (Berry, Fisher, Scooter)
RUC: Witts, Nank (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Heeney, Hannan, Bolton (Parsons, Greenwood)

From here I hold and wait for Gawn and then go Hannan OUT, Nank fwd, Gawn IN. May be short of $$$ though, so if that's the case Scooter may have to go at that point. Will leave me 1 keeper short in fwd line which I'll have to live with to save trades.

Thoughts?

#Pieinghigh

Your forwards are very very weak… I wouldn't even bother with Lloyd…

I'd be looking to upgrade Hannan > Yeo
Stewart > Ryan

in 1/2 weeks time you go Nank > Gawn

You can afford to play Berry in the middle this week, unless you plan to keep Lloyd at M8 permanently which I think is a bit of a waste as he really should be in Defence.

If you want to finalise your mids you will have to trade Scooter > Mid imo…

Bomber

Neale or Merret ?

poloko48

Zerrett for mine

Purple

Close depends on sandi

hedski

Looking fairly vanilla this week, the 2 Brrrissy boys, Barry and Berry, to the coupla first name/last name Ryan and Lloyd lads. BORING.

INPieman

A few frothies & I'm sure you'll get more adventurous Hedski

hedski

Frothies every day Pie, adventures are for the nek fortnight.

The Ranger

It's boring o'clock Hedski. Running low on trades, cash and excitement.

Defying_Madness

Hi community, have 9 trades and 136k in the bank, so looking to finish off my team.

Laird, Adams, Rance, Hibberd, Lloyd, Stewart (Ryan, Scharenberg)

Danger, Titch, Merret, Pendles, JPK, Hanners, Treloar, Barret (Berry, Bolton, Greenwood)

Kreuzer, Witts (Strn)

Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Spuddy, Nank, Heeney (Parsons, Eddy)

Any suggestions are welcome

INPieman

Put the E on Greenwood Thursday night & then reassess

Defying_Madness

That would mean moving Greenwood to the forwards since I have no loophole in the midfield right?

INPieman

Nope. Trade Barrett or Berry to a floating mid/def donut for loophole like oscar junker. Then upgrade perhaps Stewart to maybe Doch if that gives you enough cash. Assuming greenwood posts a decent score

Defying_Madness

Yeah this was my original plan, however I have pondered on whether it might be better to get Robertson as it allows me to trade off Parsons instead of Greenwood( for my last mid upgrade) so I can keep him as cover. Getting Doch in is probably the safer move though so I will likely just go with it

Cpt Pugwash

Wayne-O

Where are you mate?

Moustachio

Plz no

Skeletor

Hi guys,

First time positing. I figured I'd like some input from the experts on now my team is travelling at this stage in the competition.

Def: Docherty, Laird, Rance, Shaw, McDonald, Lloyd (Ryan, Scharenberg)

Mid: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Sloane, Treleor, Rockliff, Crouch, Bont, Fyfe (Fisher, Cousins, Perryman)

Ruck: Grundy, Kreuzer (Cameron)

For: Macrae, Franklin, Dalhous, Nankervis, Lynch, Greenwood (Bolton, Parsons)

I traded in Ryan and Lloyd this week. Next week I'll upgrade in the forward line and I think I'm set? I have 8 trades left and $102 in the warchest. Any feedback would be great!

Hoot

Adams from collingwood

Skeletor

Where would I put him? Or I can reverse trades and bring in Adams instead of Lloyd?

BlueNath

Yes, you can reverse trades up until lockout, but wait on Adams. His price will fall over the next 2 weeks. Lloyd is a common sense get this week

Hoot

McDonald and Shaw reliable enough to call premium? In 2017?

Whatyasmokin

Shaw yeah if williams keeps playing up the ground, McDonald heck no.

Cpt Pugwash

Choice between Cloke and Lin Jong

Russty_

Lin Jong, definitely this week, cause I'm playing you in one of my Leagues this week…lol, but, I know you're joking…so why even post it?

Whatyasmokin

Too many great options my head is spinning.

Russty_

So , is He-man really as gay as he appears to be?…in the cartoons…not that there's anything wrong with that πŸ™‚

Skeletir

He-Man a homosexual? No way. We're talking about the most powerful man in the universe!

Wow a post from the man himself! Thanks Jock!!

Russty_

You were so flustered you even mispelled your own name lol

Pat Rick

Hey all heres the team I'm going into the second half of the season with.

Doc, Adams, Laird, Lloyd, Tuohy, Newman (Scharenberg, Ryan)

Danger, Pendles, Bont, Treloar, Jelwood, Hanners, Dusty, Scooter (Brown, Cousins, Hibberd)

Grundy, Nank (Strnadica)

Macrae. Dahl , Heeney, Buddy, Tom Lynch (GC) Greenwood (Bolton, Beech)

Have 10 trades left & 87k after going
T.Stewart>Lloyd
Parsons>Beech

How should I look at things going down the track?

Thanks.

TheScacman

Watch out on Beech for job security, could possibly swing Brown into the forward line and bring in mountford

Rivo

Scooter at M9, mids and defence at "full" premo. Need to get 2 fwds to make finish team. Yeo, Macrae and Goldy/Gawn are my targets; but not enough cash to get there now. Lloyd tempting but are there any logical trades this week?

D: Doc, Laird, Simpson, Hibberd, Rance, Shaw (Scharenberg, Ryan);
M: Danger, Sloane, Pendles, Treloar, Hanners, JPK, M.Crouch, Fyfe (S.Selwood, Cousins, Pickett);
R: Martin, Nank (Strnadica);
F: Heeney, Buddy, Dahl, T.Lynch, Greenwood, Bolton (Parsons, Eddy).

9 trades & $10k. Any suggestions?

Mavs17

You could get rid of Selwood for the money and then try swing nank fwd to get another ruck.

Rivo

Yes Mavs, that did cross my mind. Would need 2 trades to make it happen. Gawn some weeks away and a definite prospect, but to trade now only delivers he likes of Vardy as a single trade.

Derek

Selwood to Mountford

Parsons to Ryder

Rivo

Thanks Derek. Yes that was on my radar, though Mountfords JS is a concern. Is Brown a better option or wait another week on him?

Jambak

Titch, Adams, Lloyd or another midfielder or defender ?

jez_m

Adams is a must have defender this year. But given his BE is 143, he could probably wait a week. I'd grab Lloyd – value for money.

jez_m

Great podcast as always lads. Jake Lloyd and Luke Ryan in this week for Otten and Vickers-Willis. Leaves me with two rookies on field (Stewart and Greenwood) with 178K in the bank. A Powell-Pepper downgrade to Callum Brown (once on the bubble) should provide the required additional funds to grab Docherty in the coming weeks.

BlueNath

I want to throw a challenge out to the community just to make sure you consider all strategic options going forward. So your challenge is to answer this question:

(If you have less than 10 trades left) trade in L. Ryan or A. Witherden? Why?

INPieman

That depends. If you want a player to loop this week Ryan. If you need someone to loop that may come in handy later witherden. And if your looking for a pure scoring option then Ryan has the game

Derek

I've heard of Ryan!

BlueNath

There is no real right or wrong answer. And everything is dependent on your team structures, cash, trades etc.

But I really wish this community would get more involved in discussing deeper strategies rather than just posting teams and saying they are getting Lloyd in this week.

For example, Ryan is a great bench option. But if you already have a Newman or Stewart and are getting Lloyd then Witherden is a really strategic trade that could net you lots of bonus points. He is DPP, so he can allow you to loophole say a Stewart at D7 who may have a blinder. Or as captain loophole. And DPP means he can also allow you to throw your structure around to help cover injuries.

Further, Witherden plays for Brissy who have lots of late round matches, allowing you to maximise loophole options.

Also, if you have say 9 trades left and only 1 or two from full premium, you no longer really need cash generation. And if you do, Ryan won't "fatten" until round 20-22! By then do you really think you'll be trading him out to paint the fence? Unlikely you'll have the trades.

Anyway, just wanting people to consider these choices we now have in the run home. Don't fall into the trap for thinking a rookie on the bubble is your best/only option

DacZawson

Just adding an extra opinion to what you've presented Nath, depending on how much cash you need, getting 100-150k from Ryan may be all that you require meaning that it may only take 3-4 weeks to get that cash grab. That cash may allow you to nail those last few trades around before finals meaning it could be a very viable option.

DacZawson

Also you have my complete support regarding your opinion on the generic questions asked on this page every week.

Dutch

Your thinking is sound Nath. I've kept Hibberd (NM) all year for that same reason (albeit less late games means not quite as useful some weeks).
Also why I'm currently holding Steele with my initial intent of him becoming my F7/M9 still the target.
My current problem is that Hibberd (NM) and Strnadica (Fre) are my only non-playing bench players, so my loophole options are limited – I guess it's better than the opposite, having no playing bench players, and at least means there's steady fattening up of the slaughter options.

Derek

gotta have the DPP's

The Ranger

Surely you'd got for a Saints player if you're playing that strategy?
They have three Sunday games over finals.

Derek

i'm kicking myself for starting with cameron at r3. Swans have 9 of there last 6 games on a Friday/Thursday

The Ranger

I did the same Derek. I was confident he'd get a game, make me some cash and that I'd then trade him down to Sterndick.
Another fail unfortunately. Prob have to just keep him now.

Moustachio

Definitely weird when you had Preuss named R1…

Derek

that was when Gawn got injured. Started with Gawn and Sandi

when gawn was injured i traded Preuss in for gawn. He played 1 game. Cameron sat on the forward bench while Nank covered in the rucks and Preuss at R3.

Rucks were a nightmare this year

Notorious mac

Will the return of harred mcviegh impact on jake lloyds scoring output

jez_m

Unlikely. Lloyd scored 106 and 101 in the two games McVeigh has played this year. Newman on the other hand I wouldn't be as confident in.

DacZawson

McVeigh is getting old and with the emergence of Newman and Lloyd I wouldn't be surprised if they played McVeigh off a forward flank for a bit to give those two the best chance to continue improving. Would be shocked if McVeigh played on after this year.

Jakem

I havent got Docherty in my team and I feel like I've missed the bought for now.
Is it worth two trades to bring him in compared to 1 trade to bring in Jakey Lloyd?

Dutch

Only if you have >12 trades, or if high up in the rankings …. Lloyd too much value this week to miss

Andy

Do you guys recon the Joel Selwood tag will be a reoccurring thing from now on?

jez_m

Most teams have opted not to tag him, but stopping one of Danger/Selwood has proved effective against the Cats. I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

Russty_

Don't think so Andy as Geelong have Danger, Selwood, Duncan…even Guthrie lately posting good numbers, I think if teams were gonna tag Geelong regularly, the tag would shift to different players.

Whatyasmokin

I reckon he is the best one to tag cos he's quick and can tear you apart if you let him. Duncan big strong harder to nullify and Guthrie can run around and have a bit of an impact anywhere.

He's the most threatening and probably the one other teams can influence the most. Expect the tag.

The Ranger

It's been a thing for years Andy and he still averages 110 most years.
He just throws in the odd spud score too.

JDP

Do I trade Zac Jones to Lloyd or save the trade. Have Stewart as cover?

Dutch

I would do it if you have sufficient trades left – most people would have seen Jones as a mid-price stepping stone rather than a keeper, so it matches the original purpose of him ….

joe

Correction to podcast's Peter: Geelong v Freo is at Geelong.

Dutch

Just spotted the article below on HS website – Cats club physio saying Scooter is running at training already, not yet ruled out for this weekend and is essentially listed as a "test". Sitting out the last quarter on the weekend was mostly precautionary.
http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/more-news/a

I expect the Cats will stay play it safe and not play him this week, but it does sound like he's a realistic chance to only miss one. For the majority of supercoachers, unless at the pointy end of rank standings, may be worth holding for a week and re-assessing?

Russty_

Yeah I'll be holding for sure…I think they only took him out of the game cause he felt slightly twingy, so might only be a bit of tightness and some Physio electro magnetic stimulation could work wonders, I'm holding regardless…he still has 100k to make.

Russty_

Hey guys, I brought K.Stevens in awhile back cause I thought he might be a good pod…(wrong!)…only got 10 trades left and 47K in the bank, my query is, would you hold on Spudly Stevens for one more week hoping he improves or maybe go to Adelaide's Lynch instead before Stevens bleeds much more cash which he will.

DacZawson

You're just going from one problem to another.
If you have to trade I'd go to GC Tom Lynch, Jeremy Cameron or even Paddy Ryder before Adelaide Tom Lynch.
Of course this all assumes that you have Dahlhaus already.

Russty_

Yeah I have Dahlhaus, but I consider those four about the same as far as scoring potential goes, and they're all inconsistent…so it's a bit of a dilemma, I should probably hold I guess and see if he can do better.

Dutch

Depends on whether you're only 1-2 off full premo Russty – if you are I would do it for sure if going for rank (and keep your fingers crossed that Lynch's sub-50 scores are behind him for the year).
The one reservation I've had from the start with any GC player is they're scheduled to play Port at AO in R23 which may not bode well for GC player scoring potential, which for League GF players could be a decisive factor – it's why I've shied away from GC players all year!

Dutch

Ah, sorry Russty, I was thinking you were talking about GC's Lynch, not Adelaide's – may need new reading glasses ….

Russty_

Hahah no worries Dutch…what do you think of Adelaide's Lynch? averaging 99 last 3 rounds

DacZawson

I was having a look through Lynch's stats and his scores have no real correlation with how the crows play and what ground they play at, which makes it really hard to judge how he could perform the second half of the year.
However, despite my suggestions above about the other options, I'm a sucker for a good POD so if your gut is telling you Lynch then jump on for a ride and hope for the best

Dutch

As DZ said in his two replies, good POD, but I would be looking at some of the alternatives that DZ mentioned above first ….

Russty_

Cheers guys, not so much concerned about getting a pod as getting someone who can deliver good scores…just worried if I dump Steven's lately low scoring ass…and then he starts dropping tonnes again aaah lol Maybe I should just go Ryder?….wish he was more consistent though.

Whatyasmokin

He's not the worst player you could take a chance on, having a really good year. he is 35K less than his starting price so flew under the radar a bit last season too.

Russty_

Yeah kind of agree Smokin…I'm thinking Stevens was just some old fool's gold now, freakin spud..but sometimes a fwd who can make ya between 85 and 95 can make the difference…cheers.

Whatyasmokin

Stevens was a good pick, then they went and gave him the tagging duties didn't they?

Russty_

Yeah for one of the past 2 weeks, don't think he was a tagger last week, just a potato, cheers though…I reckon I'll go with Lynch, I believe he'll deliver more than Stevens. πŸ™‚

Whatyasmokin

I like Lynch because he's not that key position forward, he works hard finds space and has good ball use.

Russty_

Cheers man, yeah I agree, he's reasonably solid-ish, and is affordable for what I can afford.

The Ranger

Get all your other trades sorted first Russty, than if you've got enough left you can decide if it's worth moving him on.

Tommo09

Have 9 trades and $4.9k left

Def: Doch, Adams, Laird, Simpson, Hibberd, Tuohy (Stewart, Ryan)
Mid: Danger, Mitchell, Pendles, Selwood, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, S.Selwood (Bolton, Cousins, Hibberd)
Ruc: Mummy, Sandi (Strnadica)
Fwd: Heeney, Macrae, Dahl, Nank, Lynch, Hannan (Greenwood, Eddy)

Thoughts on what to do this week???

Russty_

I'd hold this week Tommo, just swap Greenwood with Bolton so he can cover S.Selwood, who might miss this week.
Can't trade every week, sometimes you've just gotta let the dice roll.

James

13 trades left $85k in the bank. Was going to downgrade berry to Ryan leaving me with $262k. The problem now is I don't know who to upgrade! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

DEF: Doch, Adams, Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Newman EMG Stewart, Berry
MID: Danger, J.Selwood, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Bont, Fyfe, Barrett EMG Bolton, Lloyd, Cousins
RUCK: Grundy, Nank EMG English
FWD: Macrae, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Stewart, Greenwood EMG Parsons, Strnadica

Burns.

Trade out either Berry or Stewart, then upgrade Barrett to maybe a Tom Mitchell.

Relton

Only want to do one of the options below as my first trade is scooter too neale.. after JS more so than huge cash
1.Berry>ryan
Or
2.Barrett> mountford
Or

JS tough to judge with rookies given that one bad game could be the end of them. If you don't care about Berry's dpp swing I'd go for Ryan

Stirlsy

1 and 2 have better JS then 3 2 is being used as a tagger so trade 1 for mine.

Whatyasmokin

Agreed. Plus it means keeping Barrett over Berry. ALTHOUGH that DP status could come in handy.

neil Demons Delight

scooter a chance to play

Jamie

so who to trade out for Ryan? Hibberd (north) or go on a Barrett, or Stewart early? Or move s selwood?

DacZawson

Not much point trading Hibberd this late in the season, personally I'd trade Barrett given his breakeven is at 55

Jamie

Yeah that was my thinking, like hibberds dpp, largely why he has hung around

Stirlsy

I went Barrett, tossed Hibberd into the guts, he will get games once North are out of contention, that's when Scotty will play his fringe players/kids and its a bonus if you have Adams. You never know the dpp might come in handy.

harry feinauer

im thinkin sunday is gonna be make or break for most teams

Russty_

Why's that Harry?

Whatyasmokin

I have my best players playing sunday, bar Lynch who could go either way.

ProTravo

Yeah, most will have the 'C' on Danger unless a chosen 'VC' gets over 140.
Everyone will be counting on Danger to have another ripper game.

Stirlsy

Zerrett completes the Mids, Backs are set Gawn on the radar, but might need a FWD to replace the fatigued Nank…
Great show as always Gents!!!

Russty_

The Byes are bloody gone indeed Jock!…and that's the most important thing for this week, they're bloody gone yo! πŸ™‚ Whatever happens from here on in…is just gravy, compared to the last 3 weeks of hell!…HelI I tells yas!!!

Beetlejuice

Should i hold jack steven or hold and wait for him to hit some form??

Taco Corp

Last forward spot..
I have Macrae, Doll, Lynch, Kennedy, Franklin..
Yeo or Heeney? (Just can't bring myself to accepting that yeo is the real deal after so much rubbish over the years)
Or wait until Gawn drops and move Nank forward.

Derek

i would have a think about Ryder

Taco Corp

Was close to bringing in Ryder in round 10. Pretty glad I didn't as he went 69, 81 & 81 the next 3 rounds. Only been over 100 3x this year.

Derek

i brought him in a while ago so i've been watching him closely. he was playing alot better than his SC scores suggested. Not sure why that was the case, but i was confident that he would eventually be rewarded and the SC scores will come. last week he scored well and i think we will see more good scores from here on.

look at ports draw, especially the last 5 games of the season.

Saints – HOME
Adelaide – HOME
Collingwood – HOME
Dogs – AWAY
Suns – HOME

4 of their last 5 at home and only one of those teams currently in the top 8. Adelaide is the showdown and form doesn't matter!

I'm seriously considering Wingard as my last forward.

Taco Corp

looking at this, Wingard definitely has me interested!

Ben

yeo

ProTravo

Will be upgrading either Newman or Shaw to a Premo Mid next week via DPP.
Who should I have my eye on this round to bring in next week? At the moment i'm thinking Titch.
My best 22 are as below:

DEF: Doc Laird Lloyd Shaw Newman Hibberd (Melb)
MID: Danger Dusty Rocky Neale Treloar Kelly Bont Adams
RUCK: Mumford Goldstein
FWD: Heeney Yeo Dahl Mcrae Nank Greene

SC_Kev7

At this point it's the best you can afford, PT.

ProTravo

I can afford to bring in any mid, just thinking which players will finish in the top 8 other than mids I already have.
Titch,, Pendles, Zerret and Zorko are options i'm thinking of at the moment but don't have a lot of confidence in which one to go with.

Jordan

Simpson, hibberd, or roberton
Leaning towArds Simpson as I feel teams will start to tag docherty which will free Simpson up
Thoughts?

SC_Kev7

Doch has a 5 round average of 130 and has scored the second most points in the comp behind Danger. You'd think clubs would throw some pressure his way by now.

Go Roberton. I like Hibberd but he's in some doubt this week

Derek

You'd think that!

Holty

Simpson for me. I think Simpson is the reason Doch doesn't get tagged. They play similar roles. What i have noticed in their games of late is neither will play that lose man behind the play for longer then 10min. They both rotate so difficult for a tagger to know what to do. So putting a tagger on doch will just mean he will play 1on1 against his opponent which allows Simpson free which seems to defeat the purpose of a tagger. Imo

Choice

I have Hanners, JPK, Franklin, Heeney & Newman. Is getting Lloyd just too much?

jez_m

My general rule is no more than two players from the same club on each line. In saying that, I've never had six players from the same club in my team. Chances are they won't all score over 100 in the same week.

INPieman

You wouldn't want the Swans bus to crash

Horse

No. I have six woods and barrack for Bombers

Soothsayer

I am seriously considering going VERY early on Sharenberg to enable a swap for Selwood to Lloyd and Ryan. Looking then to move Lloyd back to defense when defense later for Stewart or Ryan. I am effectively jumping from Sharenberg to Ryan to enable me to get Lloys at the bargain price. Is this too wasteful in trades?

Danno

waste

Soothsayer

Thanks Danno, I think so too. I may just have to miss out on Ryan and look at Mountford or similar.

Choice

might not be a bad idea now… wait for sunday teams

Richard

Congratulations Malcolm Blight for being inducted in the hall of fame.Legend Status.What a true champion of the game.His list of achievements is unparalleled.

Russty_

That 75 metre Torpedo he kicked from the centre to win that game should be reason alone πŸ™‚
