Round 14 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on


This is a significant round of football. We get to celebrate one of the greatest players the game has ever seen.

He has been an incredible footballer, and from a fantasy perspective none even come close to what this man has achieved over such a long, long period of time. Some call him the GOAT.

I speak of course of the return of Shaun McKernan to Essendon’s lineup. Having been held back by Woosha under the lesser known ‘Mercy Rule’ of the AFL, which was quietly scrapped two weeks ago to facilitate the return of Liam Jones, McKernan is now free to continue his reign as the best footballer of all time.

God forbid he match up on Liam Jones in round 20 or the whole universe might explode.

Also some bald bloke who sort of looks like the community’s own Chicko is playing his 300th game 


God is dead. Well, for a week. Gary Ablett has been withdrawn from Gold Coast’s squad to take on St Kilda after failing a fitness test this morning. The official word is his calf, but I’ve been on the phone shouting at whoever will listen and there’s a conspiracy afoot. I don’t know what it is, but I’ll be shouting at clouds until I can figure out what it is.

As mentioned, the biggest news of the week is Shaun McKernan’s return from the wilderness of Tullamarine. He comes in for the injured Cale Hooker.

He’ll probably be straight back out, mind you. Otherwise it just wouldn’t be fair to everyone else. We have a new rookie this week, with Brisbane confirming 117k DEF/MID prospect Alex Witherden will line up against the Giants. What they haven’t confirmed is he’ll pique our interest, we’ll bring him in and they’ll drop him after 4 games – like every other bloody rookie this year.


Panic? DON’T MIND IF I DO! PanicRd14Image1.png I just have a lot of emotions, okay? Be professional, Patch. Be professional. Let’s just look at the rest of the team lists and remain ca-SWEET JESUS. This is bad.

Aaron Sandilands is still missing, although how anyone 27 foot tall can go missing is beyond me. Josh J. Kennedy is still missing. Jack Steele is still in the VFL. The Nank is a chance to miss with a calf injury, with Richmond naming Oleg Markov and Ivan Maric on an extended bench. Jarrod Witts is also under an injury cloud, as is GWS’ Josh Kelly

As you would have noticed, WE HAVE NO ROOKIES. James Cousins was dropped. David Myers was dropped. Matt Scharenberg was dropped. Harry Perryman was given a gold star and a pat on the head. I’m kidding, he was dropped. Dropped, dropped, DROPPED, like sacks of bloody potatoes.

Zak Jones: suspended. Out for a week. Michael Barlow snapped his leg in half and will miss. Aaron Hall didn’t snap his leg in half, but it’s a bit sore so he’s not playing. Nathan Jones is missing. Jack Watts is missing.

Carlton have threatened to bring back Jarrod Pickett by putting him on the extended bench, just when we need him to be a big, fat donut so that we can get Hugh Greenwood’s 127 onfield. In the Yellow Corner, Richmond have threatened to drop Shai Bolton by putting him in the exact same place – the Sunday bench. Majak Daw has returned, because we didn’t want Todd Goldstein to score well anyway.

But it’s all okay, because Scott Selwood has been named on an extended bench, Jarrod Harbow returns and BIG MAX GAWN is back. So everything is just motherflipping peachy. It’s all fine. Cancel the panic.  

1:30PM EDIT: wait no never mind Nat Fyfe is a late out start panicking again everyone kk thnx byeeeeeee


There is no patching up to do because everything is peachy. Isn’t that right, News Section? HUH? Stick your head in the sand and pretend it’s all fine? What are you, a politician? You disgust me. So if everything’s fine, let’s take some teams for a test drive, shall we? See how they handle. PanicRd14Image2.png

If your ship is about to crash into a forest, Lek’s cheat sheet will help you out. If you need downgrades, Barron is da real mvp – almost as real as the GOAT the intro fluffed on about. YOU’RE NOT EVEN A REAL SEGMENT, INTRO. I don’t even know why I’m a segment anyway. Because everything I do, Lek or Barron do better. That’s before we even mention the podcast. I’m just a shoehorned pun that Patch likes too much to let go. Besides, with Thursday footy everyone’s done their bloody trades anyway. Which leaves the inevitable poor soul who forgot there’s a Thursday game with bastards like Tom Mitchell and Rory Sloane still on their bench, waiting for trades that will never come.

This segment is a mess. Get outta here. Scram, kid. Go home. There’s nothing to be done to fix teams here. Try the comments. *door slamming*


Let’s get this trainwreck of a Panic Room back on track, shall we? Take a break from the craziness of Supercoach and slide into a nice, relaxing, one-off game of DraftStars. Here’s the side I’m going in with:



Tigers V Blues Draftstars Contest

I’ve had two correct strategies over the past two weeks, but the strategy has come in the wrong week, so I’ve been left stranded. This week, I’m trying not to put too much into a strategy and picking everything I can. You’ll notice I’m missing the three biggest averaging players in the game – Sam Docherty, Dusty Martin and Bryce Gibbs.

After the past three weeks, I’m wagering Docherty and Gibbs are going to receive a lot of attention from the Tiges, which might let my substitute Premo Lite selections of Kade Simpson and Marc Murphy off the chain. I couldn’t afford Dusty, simple as that, and prefer Kreuzer over Nank by the length of the Flemington Staight, especially with Nank underdone.

My prediction is the winning side will not have Toby Nankervis in it. I’m backing Dan Rioli, Shaun Edwards and Kane Lambert to have strong weeks in front of the sticks, on gut if nothing else. What’s your side looking like this week, community?



Not too much to see in the breakevens this week (aside from the GOAT with a -26 BE), but Max Gawn can finally finally be struck back down into the list, and we keep an eye on his price with an idea to move to him in a few weeks – I wouldn’t go Sandi to him this week, mind you.

Everything’s Coming Up Milhouse

-55 – Luke Ryan

-35 – Callum Brown

-29 – Declan Mountford

-26 – Shaun McKernan

0 – Shai Bolton

1 – Hugh Greenwood

7 – Jack Silvagni

8 – Lewis Melican

9 – Brennan Cox

18 – James Parsons


Dig Up, Stupid

212 – Max Gawn

194 – Rory Sloane

191 – Tom Rockliff

189 – Charlie Dixon

169 – Dan Hannebery

148 – Jason Johanissen

143 – Taylor Swift Adams


Hopefully you either put the VC on Hugh Greenwood (127) or Matt Crouch (131) last night or didn’t use it at all, as everyone was tripe. Especially Tex Walker, who I put the VC on for lolz. It’s been nearly 12 hours and I am yet to so much as smirk at my decision. Why do I do this to myself?

The obvious move this week is to give Paddy Dangerfield the captaincy, which hopefully everyone is doing (although I do love Joel Selwood down at the Cattery if you want to be different), but there is a beautiful bald bonce playing his 300th game throwing a spanner in the works.

As much as I love Gary Ablett, I’d still go Dangerfield for the captaincy despite the sentimentality. Ablett only averages 112 against the Saints, compared to mid-120s or 130s against most sides. As for the VC – JPK and Merrett are the two candidates to watch tonight in Sydney, with Merrett just edging JPK out on 2017 form.

If you’re looking for a Saturday game, Scott Pendlebury is your man. He averages 112 both at the G and against Port, and while you wouldn’t take that from Gary in a head-to-head against Danger, there’s not too much else on offer.

Sam Docherty and Dustin Martin both play Sunday alongside Danger, The Bont is out of form, as is Tommy Rockliff, and not a huge lot else interests me. Maybe Luke Shuey if you’re feeling dicey? I dunno, man. I just dunno.


Two final things before I go. First is as I’ll be at work most of today and won’t get to many comments: Sandilands is still missing and we’ve not heard when he’s due back, similarly JJK has been confirmed out until round 16. Both of those can go if you have the trades, as far as I’m concerned. I’d hold Nank unless you’re at full premo and have 8+ trades left.

Secondly is to sign up to DraftStars and to get down to your local for some CoachKings. Just do it. It’s better than agonising over stupid, stupid trades and the inability of anyone to play their bloody rookies.

I can feel my blood beginning to boil again – I better go. Best of luck this weekend community, in whatever format you frequent! Patch

    redherringfc · 23/06/2017 at 19:15

    Well done LoganJosh.

    It's so good to see such a profound message as the 1st message whenever we scroll down to the comments.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly.

      LoganJosh7 · 26/06/2017 at 11:35

      such were my feelings on the day

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 09:35

You forgot Luke Ryan, on the bubble at -55…. if Lyin plays him that is …

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 10:11

    Cheers Lazza, I'll chuck him in!

    jason · 23/06/2017 at 18:57

    Can we trust Rossco though?? Putting McCarthy aside he has played Balic (4 games), Logue (4) & Cox (1). His hate for Rookie players knows no bounds!!!

KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 23/06/2017 at 09:42

Taking Greenwoods score of 127, thoughts on who to take off? Have him in the middle so I'm leaning towards fyfe at this point….

    Benjamin B · 23/06/2017 at 09:50

    who are your mids?

      KICKITDOWNTHEGUTS · 23/06/2017 at 10:00

      Danger, Selwood, Bontempelli, Hannebery, M. Crouch, Fyfe, Pendlebury, Neale.

        Benjamin B · 23/06/2017 at 10:03

        fyfe 100%

          Patch · 23/06/2017 at 10:35


    leedy · 23/06/2017 at 14:15

    Puzzle solved.

    nick · 23/06/2017 at 17:12

    fyfe is out so happy days for you my friend

Choice · 23/06/2017 at 09:49

Enjoyable read Patch, thank you!
Is Lloyd a must get? I've got Newman and stewart on ground with Berry on bench. 8 trades left.
Or just hang on and see?

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 10:14

    If you can go Stewart to Lloyd I absolutely would

      Choice · 23/06/2017 at 10:24

      I would have to trade down 1 of Berry, Scharenberg,Fisher, Parsons or Hannan. So will take me two trades to get him.

        Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:09

        You at full premo everywhere else?

          Choice · 23/06/2017 at 11:38

          no, hannan/greenwood f6

        Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 11:19

        Fisher is a slow burn … Lloyd's value will increase more in one week than Fisher in 4.

          Choice · 23/06/2017 at 11:44

          Could go Fisher to Junker. Get that non-playing def/mid. Then Berry to Lloyd. Stewart being mature age might last the season.
          Means 6 trades left. Would perhaps go Scott selwood to yeo and Newman/Stewart to Laird

    SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 11:52

    Is Lloyd even a certainty to play? He's listed last on the emergencies, and it is Ross effin Lyon we're talking about.

Benjamin B · 23/06/2017 at 09:50

Im trading out two of these for either Jake Lloyd and Ryan/Mountfoud.
Barret, Berry, Stewart, SPP.
Which two do i flick?

    Tommo · 23/06/2017 at 10:12

    Barrett and SPP have the higher BE's

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 10:24

    Barret and Berry for mine

      Benjamin B · 23/06/2017 at 10:26

      Thanks patch, would you bring in mountford or Ryan? ill be full premo for both def and mid (If you count fyfe as premo)

        Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:09

        Would wait until 5pm when Sunday benches are announced. If Ryan is named, I'd go with him

INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 09:54

Love it Patch! And hate you Ross Lyon

    LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 09:58

    congrats on the bringing up the ton

Ben · 23/06/2017 at 10:06

whats nank chances of missing?

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 10:28

    I'm not sure, it's not easy to tell. Naming Maric is a bad sign, but chances are he still plays I think

      SC_Kev7 · 23/06/2017 at 10:45

      Maric for DS if he gets up. Be cheap as chips!

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/06/2017 at 11:52

        Kruz for me. In the purple patch of his life.
        Plough on tractor.

Seeker · 23/06/2017 at 10:10

Isaac Heeney has played Essendon twice and has scored 138 and 96. Small sample size I know, but with an average of 117 against the Dons and a current 3 game average of 108.7 it might be worth a risk to plonk the VC on him, because there's always Danger on Sunday…

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:10

    That's a really good point, Seeker. Buddy loves the Dons as well so could also be worth a punt

    ProTravo · 23/06/2017 at 12:02

    You have my attention. VC goes to Heeney this week

    Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 12:04

    I'm tossing up between the two, leaning to buddy

Paul · 23/06/2017 at 10:20

I currently have Greenwood as MID emergency on my bench, can I use Eddy in the FWD line to loophole Greenwoods score?

    Moustachio · 23/06/2017 at 10:28


    SC_Kev7 · 23/06/2017 at 10:46

    Yeah. Emergencies only cover the line they are on

Simo · 23/06/2017 at 10:23

Anyone else downgrading Preuss to Darcy to make some cash / cover for Sandi? Should I do it? 12 trades left.


    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:11

    Probably wouldn't, Simo. Can't see Darcy getting many games this year

      Simo · 23/06/2017 at 11:13

      Anymore than Pruess though?

      Slatsy · 23/06/2017 at 17:06

      Worst case if he gets dropped is that Freo have a lot of Sunday games so he would be good for loophole purposes

        hedski · 23/06/2017 at 17:57

        Better off with Strnadica, cheaper and can swing.

Bock Choy · 23/06/2017 at 10:30

I am pleased I stayed my hand and held off trading Hardwick. His 84 was very hand last night, will knock his B/E down and will lead to some more cash generation over the next few weeks. Even better, it is some decent cover if The Nank is a late out on Sunday.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 10:34

    Nice Hold Bock

Moustachio · 23/06/2017 at 10:35

Welcome to Moustachio's errr, errr Quantum Team Mechanics.

Maybe you can all swing a little loop magic this round if you have a similar setup to mine. Relevant layout is

Ruc: Stef, Goldy / Strnadica
Fwd: Nank, 5 other spud "premos" / Greenwood (e), Eddy

We want to get Greenwoods score so of course we will use team mascot Eddy. Although we have many spud options to ditch when we put Eddy on the field, the best option is Nank. This is because we can also stick big Stef on the ruck bench as (e) with Strnadica taking the field.

If Stef craps his dacks again we can roll the dice on Nanks score, moving him to the ruck field from the fwd bench.


    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 10:45

    Awesome suggestion. Let's hope Eddy isn't a late in again. He's a dangerous man to use your captain loop on

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:12

    Love it Moustachio!

Ja191 · 23/06/2017 at 10:39

who on field out of Stewart or JJ. JJ's form has been that bad I kind of want to bench him

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:13

    Can you use a loop? If not, Stewart onfield on current form

    Seeker · 23/06/2017 at 11:21

    Assuming we are talking Tom Stewart (GEE). JJ not providing halfback run due to close attention is seriously impacting the Dogs games. I see no reason for Nth to do anything different. Therefore, I'd be backing Stewart over the Freo forwards.

    redherringfc · 23/06/2017 at 15:21

    trade jj out. He's on 385k with a break even of 148. Cut your losses.

Rivo · 23/06/2017 at 10:40

Great work Patch.
Panic has set in. With the extended bench list at the Cats, Is Scooter a trade out must? Got him in last week at M9 to generate cash and use as a step up for forwards/ruck upgrade.

With Nank to swing forward, the plan was Scooter and Parsons to Mountford & Ryder.

Only 9 trades and $10k so yes a tad nervous.'

Do it or not?

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:15

    You certainly don't have to trade Scooter out – I'm holding. I don't mind those moves, but that probably locks you out of Gawn in a few weeks.

    If he's named tonight I'd hold

      Rivo · 23/06/2017 at 11:25

      Thanks Patch. When do they finalize the teams for Sunday's games?

SC_Kev7 · 23/06/2017 at 10:52

Patch, mate, slightly unhinged this week. Are you okay? Will a journo doorstop Jarrod Pickett but instead find him bound and gagged to a chair?

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 11:04

    How bad would it be if Pickett was your loop for Greenwood & he plays. Devastating

      Pitch 72 · 23/06/2017 at 11:06

      You'd trade him out to a non playing 102k dpp rookie.

      Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:15

      He is my loop for Greenwood

        Pitch 72 · 23/06/2017 at 11:22

        I've got Lloyd (GWS) as my loop, I will be no good to anyone between 1600 and 1635 tomorrow.

          hedski · 23/06/2017 at 16:28

          Sorry Pitch but Lloyd is in for Josh Kelly, you need a new loop.

            Pitch 72 · 23/06/2017 at 19:29

            That would be Kelly.

        INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:02

        You haven't had any hard luck this season Patch

          Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:19

          A lot of it is self inflicted, but also everything is terrible

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/06/2017 at 12:22

      Got a boy safe as houses as my loop for greenwood.
      Kicks 6 goals a week doesn't even make an E.

        The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 16:39

        Careful TH, the SC Gods are in a frickin awful mood and you wouldn't want to tempt them!

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 11:16

    No comment.

    Stirlsy · 23/06/2017 at 13:22

    Bought in Deluca Cardillo from Freo this week mainly as a 102k DPP deadman in fwds had Greenwood sitting F6
    I moved the newbe to F6 then 15 mins before game starts I see the newbe on Freo's extended bench
    Nup i didn't want to even entertain the thought, so whacked Greenwood back into F6

Seeker · 23/06/2017 at 11:16

HUUUUUGE Greenwood is my Emergency for JJK meaning I can hold and hope JJK's back next week. Big thanks, Huge Greenwood.
If Nank misses he becomes either Goldie or Grundy. Of course if both Nank and Witts are out I'm stuffed.

If Maric does play and Nank out, Kruezer holders might consider placed the C on him as a massive POD selection

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:18

    Beautiful stuff Seeker! Worked out very nicely for you!

    If Kreuz was on Saturday he'd be a locked VC for me, similarly a C if Danger was Saturday.

    Stirlsy · 23/06/2017 at 12:35

    JJK is 2 to 3 weeks away, has new injury.

Rob · 23/06/2017 at 11:28

Trading Stewart and Barrett out over the next two weeks. Which to trade first though?

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:17

    Barrett first with GWS this week

wombatsfc · 23/06/2017 at 11:34

You're funny

Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 11:40

Classic read patch, definitely the highlight of my Friday until the swans flog Essendon tonight with buddy kicking 12 as vc

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/06/2017 at 11:56

    I'd love to whack the C on Bud and let the good times roll. would be keen for a big one. could kick 8

      Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 12:06

      I reckon he's due, it's a low percentage play but I'm giving him the vc

        Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:15

        Can't be worse than my decision to VC Tex last night #yolo #lolz

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:17

    Hahahaha cheers mate! Although your planned highlight tonight hasn't got a chance! Daniher to kick 8, take mark of the year and Swans to be held scoreless in the first, so savour the good times while they're still here!

      Patch · 24/06/2017 at 00:10

      son of a-

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:32

    Buddy has a last 10 match Av of 129 against the bombers. Loves playing them

Steve · 23/06/2017 at 11:49

Backs: Doc, Laird, Adams, Hibberd, Simmo, Mills – emg: Perryman/Ryan
Mid: Danger, Kelly, Pendles, Treloar, Bont, Fyfe, Scooter, SPP – emg: Barrett/Cousins/Hibberd (NM)
Ruck: Goldy, Ryder
Fwd: Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Heeney, Yeo, Greenwood – Emg Parsons/Pickett

14 Trades Left, $51k in kitty – not traded this round yet
Planning on holding Scooter – Mills will hopefully end up at D7 (eventually)

Thinking – Out: Barrett and SPP – In: Martin/Neale/Zerrett, Mountford?
If Scooter doesnt get named, I can swing Ryan on ground and Adams to Mid to ensure full team this week

Or take advantage of J Lloyd price this week to complete Backline and get Mills off the ground! – then work on Mids from next week?

Thoughts appreciated!

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:14

    Lloyd this week for sure. You can keep Mills onfield and have Lloyd at M8 which I reckon would be a better move Stevo!

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 11:55

Apparently Gazza is out with a calf injury and Danger has had some hammy tightness.
Not good.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 11:59

    Gaz is out. Failed a fitness test this morning. Nank also a game day decision. I smell carnage

      LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 12:03

      youre kidding!!! when will my gablett/JJK/sandi/roo carnage end! 🙁

        Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:13

        [spoiler alert] it probably won't

        2017 is the worst

          LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 12:40

          think im done with the old firm. young guns nek year. tho its always 'next year' with SC 🙁

      Stirlsy · 23/06/2017 at 12:37

      The thought is in my mind to Pieman …. It's starting to stink already.

      LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 14:31

      its not even just a smell anymore. I think my bench is more full premo than my field.

    Wal · 23/06/2017 at 11:59

    That's pretty major hedski, source?

      LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 12:04

      yeah its confirmed

        Wal · 23/06/2017 at 12:05

        Yeah just picked it up now, cheers

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 13:41

    I think the Danger hammy was more precautionary, left the track early weds, hopefully still play.

DEE · 23/06/2017 at 11:57

Got a problem but is a good problem I guess.
Have the emergency on greenwood in the mids.
can sub Myers onto the ground but problem is who to sub out?
Danger, Neale, Pendles, Kelly, Zorko, Bont, JPK?


    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:12

    On recent form, Bont. However Kelly is underdone which complicates things… would still say Bont, just.

    Bells · 23/06/2017 at 12:20

    JPK hasn't been scoring well. Was terrible for 3 quarters last week. But surely Bont gets dropped here.

    DEE · 23/06/2017 at 17:18

    Kelly out, so that solves that.

SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 12:01

Ablett out with a calf

    Holty · 23/06/2017 at 12:07

    Damn, just when you think you are at full premo for the round. Damn you SC Gods.

      The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 12:35

      Just when thought it was gonna be a good round!
      Now I'm looping Ablett to get Huge Greenwoods score and sticking bloody Cuningham onfield.

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:11

    Brutal. They SC gods actually did it the absolute savage madmen

musicissport · 23/06/2017 at 12:06

When will we know if Shai Bolton is playing? If he's out I get Greenwood's score, if he's in I don't.

    Wal · 23/06/2017 at 12:07

    About 6.25pm

      Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:12

      I thought Sunday teams were announced at 5? Or am I mistaken?

        INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:26

        Think it's no later than 5:30

        Wal · 23/06/2017 at 12:26

        It's either you or I Patch and now that you mention it I'm not sure which!

    RoughNuts · 23/06/2017 at 12:27

    5pm today

Derek · 23/06/2017 at 12:10

last weeks decision to get Ablett instead of Docherty, just keeps haunting me.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:25

    Its a brutal business

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 13:10

      i'll cover Ablett with JStewart's E tonight or Parsons if he spuds OR Bolton if he plays (3 cracks at it). Oh dear….

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:31

    That hurts so, so much

    The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 13:03

    Oh jeez, I'd forgotten about that!
    The Doc is your nemesis Derek

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 13:12

      you know i'm doing this for the whole community. As soon as i get Docherty he will cop a tag or injury, as sure as i'm a one eyed hawk supporter!

    The Doch · 23/06/2017 at 13:29

    You r a clown.
    You had your chance take your medicine.

Bells · 23/06/2017 at 12:13

Thanks Suns! YOU EFFING CLOWNS! I coulda had Greenwood's 127 in the mids, BUT OH NO!! I had to find out later that Ablett would miss. So now I cop a donut unless Josh DC plays and gives me what? 40?
THANKS FOR RUINING MY SEASON YOU FLOG OF A Club! None of your players even like each Other! Ablett gets belted by rookie flags and you do NUTHIN! No fan having nothing club in middle of nowhere!

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:18

    I'm sensing your a little disappointed Bells

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 13:07

      can't you swing dahlhaus into the mids?

        Bells · 23/06/2017 at 14:20

        No Dahl for me. I've got the Swans best player of the last month instead. Playing off half back, through the mids, kicking goals. Wherever Horse needs a win, that's where he is sent.
        Maybe Scooter or Josh DC get a game.
        Fyfe's out might even things up now too…

          Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:16

          what about Macrae, do you have him in forwards to swing to mids?

    korza · 23/06/2017 at 15:51


RoughNuts · 23/06/2017 at 12:29

Stef Martin or Toby Greene – what are communities thoughts on which will perform better on the run home.

Need to trade Sandy but whether I go to Martin in the ruck, or swap Nank to Ruck and trade to T Greene is my prediciment.

I already have Yeo, Macrae, Dahl & Frankin.

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 12:31

    Of those two, I'd rather Greene. Still unsure what The Archie Smith effect will do to Stef

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:45

    If you have got the cash get Heeney

      RoughNuts · 23/06/2017 at 12:48

      I was leaning towards Greene because of the Archie Smith effect. The Nank injury cloud just threw a spanner in the works.

      As for Heeney – I already have Lloyd, Hanners, JPK & Franklin. That would make 5 swans I'm worried thats just to many.

        INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 12:57

        There was someone on here the other day woukd had a lot more Swans than that

          RoughNuts · 23/06/2017 at 13:08

          When Sydney lose it will hurt having 5 players – Especially over finals Swans run is Cats (Skilled), Fre (SCG), Adel (AO) & Carl (SCG).

          Heeney will likely finish top 6 Fwd – Avg wise & points from here on in so what you say makes sense.

          As I type this I'm starting to lean on potentially trading out a JPK or Hanners nearing finals to get the balance right and trade to a more reliable mid option.

            INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 13:21

            Don't trade Hanners. He's punished thousands that did already

    Derek · 23/06/2017 at 13:16

    you can't have Nank in Ruck. he is F6 at best, not R2

Jim · 23/06/2017 at 12:43

Steele is on the extended bench isn't he?

If Nank & Witts are both out then thats me done!

    RoughNuts · 23/06/2017 at 12:50

    Whats the issue with Witts?

      Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:25

      Was carrying a shoulder injury last week

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:26

    Has been confirmed by Alan Richardson to be in the magoos again to "work on his disposal efficiency" (despite being a better kick than Seb Ross and Jack Steven?)

    jez_m · 23/06/2017 at 16:30

    Richardson has already confirmed Steele won't play.

BigBoyBananana · 23/06/2017 at 12:48

Community help, please, im desperate..

1) Bench Higgins or T.Lynch for Hugh with the basketball background?

2) Which midfield premo option out of Zerrett, The $1M man J.Kelly, Neale or Zorkooo?

    LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 12:54

    these are both 50/50 choices. just have to go with your gut.

    tho for option 2 id narrow it down to zerrett or neale.

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:24



    Good luck Banana!

Rick Grimes · 23/06/2017 at 13:01

Shit a brick. If the Nank misses I'll be copping a zero. Surely he plays, important match for them.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 13:22

    I'll see that & raise ya Parsons & a donut

Andrew · 23/06/2017 at 13:07

Have had the VC on Shaw all week, 250th this weekend do we reckon he can pull out a big one?

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:23

    Big call. I'd wager not but on a VC call you can go nuts so #yolo

The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 13:09

Got Bolton and Pickett on the FWD bench and Nank onfield.
My head hurts with trying to work out exactly how that plays out…
Bolton could be a late out.
Nank could be a late out.
Pickett could be a late in.
All of them are frightening.
No idea where to place my E.

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:22

    5pm will give us the answers. Odds are we won't like the answers though

Jager Bombs · 23/06/2017 at 13:12

Is Lloyd (Swans) a must have

    Patch · 23/06/2017 at 13:22

    If you still have a defensive slot to fill, I reckon he is

TheGreatBozza · 23/06/2017 at 13:25

15 trades left and 62K

DEF: Doc, Adams, Laird, Howe, Shaw, Newman (Stewart, Scharenberg)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Treloar, Bont, Fyfe, JPK, Beams, Scooter – emg: (SPP, Fisher, Cousins)
R: Grundy, Nank (Sandi)
FWD: Heeney, Macrae, Dahl, Lynch, Greenwood, Hannan (Bolton, Cameron)

I'm rolling on the dice on Nank playing as I really want to get Gawn. I think Kreuzer's gone up too much in price and I do prefer Gawn over Goldy. My options for this week are:

1. SPP > Lloyd, Stewart > Ryan (original plan as Lloyd is extreme value)
2. SPP > Neale/Merrett, Stewart > Ryan (Scooter stays M9, irregardless of whether he plays)
3. Stewart > Ryan, Fisher > Buddy, opening up a DPP with Bolton (Scooter M8, SPP to back him up)
4. Stewart > Ryan, Hannan > Yeo (Scooter at M8 with SPP M9)

I'm still leaning to no. 1 as Lloyd is great value although my backline does need the least amount of work as compared to my FWD line.

    Winter · 23/06/2017 at 15:42

    Stewart > Ryan
    Scooter > Yeo in fwd by subbing Bolton into the mids

Anth · 23/06/2017 at 13:28


and breathe

INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 13:30

Add Fyfe to the scrap heap. He's out

    The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 13:34

    This is getting really dull now.
    Junker back to the DEF, Lloyd onfield in the MIDS, Ryan onfield and he might not even play.
    Struggling to make 22 players now…

      INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 13:42

      What did we do to anger the gods this time

        Nickf · 23/06/2017 at 14:18

        I think we tried to celebrate the son of god playing 300 and our teams reaching full premium, they are spiteful gods and can't let us have any joy

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 13:42

    Makes me feel better about that trade I made last week.
    Now I need Ross to not fug me around at 5pm.

      The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 13:48

      He's gonna do it isn't he Hedski….
      Ryan. Late out. "Managed" probably.

        hedski · 23/06/2017 at 14:51

        If he is my planned trade of Berry to Ryan will probably change to Berry to Witherden/Junker/Hibbo jnr, kicking myself I'm $800 short of a straight swap of Barret to Lloyd.
        Will be sweating then on Ryan playing then next week so I can downgrade Stewart, was hoping for him to be d7.
        Bloody Ross.

    Stirlsy · 23/06/2017 at 13:44

    Stink is starting to get to me now!!!

    Can we make it a bye round?

    Nickf · 23/06/2017 at 14:13

    I'm in panic overdrive, this week is worse than every bye round

    pod · 23/06/2017 at 14:31

    Phew, I dumped him last week.

    Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:24

    what is wrong with him?

      Sternum bruising been suffering for weeks with it.

Hope that Scooter plays or trade in junker and Lloyd for fisher and Berry?

Mitch · 23/06/2017 at 13:38

Wallis, Macrae or Buddy?

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:54

      Buddy will kick a big bag tonight

undypuncher · 23/06/2017 at 13:39

I love you patch. If you ever nneed to some woosa ! Im here for you !

Cliffy · 23/06/2017 at 13:47

Well with Fyfe out now that just threw a spanner into my trade plans now (haven't made my trades for the round yet):

Originally was going to go

Stewart – Ryan (will be D7)
Scooter/Barrett – Merrett/Neale

Who would I look to move on first out of Scooter, Barrett or Fyfe, and who out of Merrett or Neale would I get in? Midfield is important for me to address with upgrading since I still have two spots left to fix before trading this week.

    Cliffy · 23/06/2017 at 13:48

    Was going to get in Merrett all week but now with Fyfe out Neale may potentially have an even greater opportunity to go large this week.

    Winter · 23/06/2017 at 15:43

    Sandi still out doesn't benefit Neale.
    I'd go Merrett

HB Prince · 23/06/2017 at 13:49

Anyone thinking about Robbie Gray??

    pod · 23/06/2017 at 14:37

    Not now, to much shiitte on the fan.

Harry H · 23/06/2017 at 13:56

I think Ross Lyin got angry at people talking about Brad Scott being the SC nemesis and he's decided he's going to take back the mantle. Surely he'll drop Ryan too to add cream to the cake

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:04

    You can see it coming a mile away can't ya!

Soothsayer · 23/06/2017 at 14:06

Hey Community I just want to say, the news that comes through this chat forum is pure gold. The rapid news on outs and injuries and who plays in the VFL is stupendously beneficial for the community. Thank you all and Patch and Pieman in particular.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:12

    No worries

      Patch · 24/06/2017 at 00:12

      Pieman needs to be officially elevated to Panic Room legend status

Northerner · 23/06/2017 at 14:16

All I know is the trades I was set to do this weekend will look a whole lot different than planned with all these outs. I nearly did the trades yesterday before lockout commenced as was going double upgrade to Lloyd and Yeo. Lloyd probably still comes in but in my MIDs. Yeo will have to wait another week. Lesson reinforced, never trade before you have to.

My predicted score was over 2500 when I started this week, dropping rapidly.

LooperCoach · 23/06/2017 at 14:23

Thanks POwer! YOU EFFING CLOWNS! I coulda had Greenwood’s 127 in the forwards, BUT OH NO!! I had to find out later that Broadbent would miss. So now I cop a donut unless Josh DC plays and gives me what? 40?

THANKS FOR RUINING MY SEASON YOU FLOG OF A Club! None of your players even like each Other! Broadbent gets belted by that flog Brett Eddy and you do NUTHIN! No fan having nothing club in middle of nowhere

    you and Bells sound oddly similar.

      INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:50

      One is brad Scott the other is Chris

Jambak · 23/06/2017 at 14:25

Danger left training early, will he play?

    pod · 23/06/2017 at 14:35

    He's gone surfing or fishing.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:43

    Tight hammy. Not ideal

AuroraBorealis?! · 23/06/2017 at 14:28

Thought this might be a bit of a laugh:

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:32


Shake n bake · 23/06/2017 at 14:36

Docherty could be a late out.

INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:36

Don't think the gods have finished with us yet. Doch has a sore calf & will do a fitness test in the morning. Gary failed his. Danger has hammy tightness & no certainty. Nank will be given a test on gameday. Maric into squad is a worry. And goldy has a sore back

    Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 14:38

    Just as I was planning to bring the Doc in…

      Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 15:43

      Just confirmed on SEN that Doc is playing … the supposed injury was fake news..

        Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:53

        another lazy 130 coming up i'm sure

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/06/2017 at 14:38

    This round is turning into hell! Also do you think our pies can beat port in melbourne?

      INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:45

      Anything can happen this season. 50/50

    Holty · 23/06/2017 at 14:39

    Dont forget Witts is still questionable.

      Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 14:41

      If Witts and Nank are out I will have to trade Witts to Mummy to dodge a donut

    The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 14:41

    Cue Derek.

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:22

      this is like playing golf in a howling southerly. its the same for everyone but many people are beaten before their first drive

    SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 16:10

    As a SCathiest I've always preached that there is no such thing as "SuperCoach Gods". I may have recently become a born again believer.

I've got Gazza fyfe and Sandy what do I do ?

    Nickf · 23/06/2017 at 14:43

    Do you also got alcohol? That's what i'm resorting too

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 14:46

    Agreed. The answer is always at the bottom of the bottle

      Holty · 23/06/2017 at 15:14

      Not at the bottom of every bottle. But the more you drink the better your chances.

    LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 14:53

    I have Josh Kennedy on top of those. Thanks goodness Roo and Hardbrow are back.

Joe T · 23/06/2017 at 14:50

Tom Stewart to Jake Lloyd or Fyfe to Lloyd? If I hold Fyfe I'll be copping a 0 or getting Bolton's score.

Only looking at league wins now and travelling alright so not absolutely essential to win this week. But if Fyfe is out longer then it's an option that actually makes me money and gets more points this week

    Soothsayer · 23/06/2017 at 15:36

    I have gone Stewart to Lloyd but not without worry the Stewy will keep improving to the 80-90 average.

Juzzy · 23/06/2017 at 14:59

This landscape is shifting too quickly.

My mid bench is Greewood(emg), Cousins and Mountford.
An hour ago I decided that when I got a break I would post and take a swipe at Mountford.
You know … been stuck on my bench all year doing bugger all, been a useless loop option, now robbing me of 123 points.
Was even gonna have a go at his name …

Now with Fyfe out and Danger a possible no-show I would like to say that Declan Mountford is a strong, instantly memorable name. He is a great kid with a bright future and I am proud to have him in my team.

    Mudguts · 23/06/2017 at 21:01

    Nice one Juzzy.
    Could have a future in Diplomacy!

TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 15:16

WTF is going on?? I just sat down to have some friggin lunch and check out the latest SC developments and I see that-


Seriously, you cannot make this sh-t up!!! My side is in danger of turning into a lump of swiss cheese. FMD…….

I have one trade left and own Fyfe, Danger, Nank, Docherty, and Ryan……..It's going to be an interesting round folks. Feels like the byes are back………..

    pod · 23/06/2017 at 15:22

    Doch will play, apparently. I just heard Terry Wallace and what's his name on SEN talking about him.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 15:28

    Definitely feels like byes are back!

    What to do?!?!??!

    JohndJames · 23/06/2017 at 16:29

    I actually wish the byes were still going.

    Moustachio · 23/06/2017 at 16:54

    One trade left?? You did this to us mate. The SC gods are smiting you into 2018. I didn't even know it was possible to be on 1 trade yet.

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 17:35

      Hehehe. Nah, I have 9 trades left to be precise. Just have one trade to use this round. Good luck in Trig's Happy Place league. I feel like a fight this week.

Red Pill · 23/06/2017 at 15:34

manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 15:41

My team will be worse than a bye week. What on earth is going???

Potential and confirmed outs: Shaz Ryan Cousins Selwood Danger (yes he left training early and is in doubt apparently) Fyfe Sandi Nank Steele Bolton

I will be lucky to field a team!

Has anyone heard anything else about the above?

Thomas · 23/06/2017 at 15:42

Buddy or Pendles VC?

    Derek · 23/06/2017 at 15:51

    VC is the least of our problems.

    But i'm going VC Buddy

    jez_m · 23/06/2017 at 16:27

    Perfect week to VC Buddy. Loves playing Essendon.

Does the Panic Room come with padded walls ? Seriously ! Also what's the latest on scooter ? I'm off to the Pub,Cheers All

Tommo09 · 23/06/2017 at 15:51

With all these late outs, do play Bolton, Ryan or Stewart?
If it's a Stewart or Ryan I will shift Adams to the middle and Fyfe to the bench

    Nickf · 23/06/2017 at 15:55

    Rumor is Ryan may be left out too…

Benjamin B · 23/06/2017 at 15:55

Stewart and Berry to Loyd and Ryan
fyfe and barrett to macrae and lloyd using DPP and berry DPP: would then trade a cash cow foward for a premo mid with macrae swap???

Derek · 23/06/2017 at 16:00

Lachie Henderson is OUT……………. ok so it isn't that big news! just wanted to join in the chorus

Jim · 23/06/2017 at 16:04

Kelly out.. Didn't see that one coming

Derek · 23/06/2017 at 16:07

i think i'll trade out fyfe this week. Fremantle had their bye last week and if Fyfe can't be ready this week after a week off, he is more injured that we thought.

    Baggy Pants · 23/06/2017 at 16:14

    I'm looking at doing the same, not sure who to yet, will definitely wait to the team updates to see who's left standing.

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 16:30

      a warning to all docherty owners. Fyfe >> Docherty.

        The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 16:33

        You know if you do that the Doc will be a late out yeah?

        INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 16:46

        No derek!

Jess · 23/06/2017 at 16:08

Imagine if Buddy copped a week too. I am sure for many it would play like a bye round!

Shaq · 23/06/2017 at 16:10

Josh Kelly the latest to be added onto the list of casualties Patch! Replaced by Daniel Lloyd..

Lachie Henderson and Ben Lennon also out injured replaced by Thurlow and Miles.

Zac Fisher and Cunningham out also replaced by Sumner and White. Unbelievable carnage.

Baggy Pants · 23/06/2017 at 16:10

I'm looking at doing the same, not sure who to yet, will definitely wait to the team updates to see who's left standing.

LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:11


    Wal · 23/06/2017 at 16:13

    He was my Fyfe cover too, so much carnage

      LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:38

      Do you know if its short or long term?

        Wal · 23/06/2017 at 16:45

        No idea but achillies doesn't sound too good

Holty · 23/06/2017 at 16:13

Well ive now given up on rd 14. Came someone let me know when rd14 ends and rd 15 opens.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 16:25

    Let's all go to the pub

      Holty · 23/06/2017 at 16:32

      Done. Not much a lot of us can do. Dont need to worry about loopholes as probably wont have enough playing. This will be a round almost like dreamteam. Just simply set and forget.

Sully321 · 23/06/2017 at 16:20

powell-pepper or s. selwood down to mountford?

jez_m · 23/06/2017 at 16:26

Am I crazy for considering putting the C on Joel Selwood instead of Dangerfield? Selwood is averaging 137 at Skilled Stadium this year, the only worry is whether Freo send Blakey to him.

murray · 23/06/2017 at 16:26

is Yeo the real deal, seems to be having a breakout year and become a mid after started as a def with Lions if i remember

    jez_m · 23/06/2017 at 16:37

    He's definitely the real deal, Murray. He's scored nearly 100 points more than the second highest scoring forward (Macrae).

murray · 23/06/2017 at 16:27

I was hoping Sandi was back this week (have held him thru the byes) but is still out this week. He has to go so what option should I do?
I have 155k in the bank so can spend big:
1. sell Sandi for a genuine ruck ie mummy or goldy USE only 1trade
2. sell Sandi, bring Nank into ruck and buy a premo like Heeney or Yeo USE only 1trade OR
3. sell Sandi and Scooter, bring in Ryder and Yeo 2 trades OR
4. sell Sandi and Scooter, buy Stef Martin and Bontempelli

I have a no. of options but priority is to get rid of Sandi as I can no longer afford him on bench

What do you fellas think? and why

    Derek · 23/06/2017 at 16:38

    Sandi >>> GAWN

    separate yourself from the boys.

patrick365 · 23/06/2017 at 16:28

Fyfe mate you better come out next week and start averaging 150+ I swear to god

    joe · 23/06/2017 at 23:50

    No, he has to go now. The rumours about a chestguard are true and that means Freo/Lyin are still downplaying it now that they have rested him. Sternums are a bugger to heal. It won't be fixed this year.

    Miracles can happen, but I don't think he'll be a 100+ average player this year now. Time to move on.

    Top Gun · 24/06/2017 at 09:21

    Trading Fyfe out in round 13 is looking gold atm

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 09:46

    Fyfe is tanking, he can't wait to leave the place.

wightyswarriors · 23/06/2017 at 16:33

fyfe to greenwood last week and can get his points this round….,,,was going to doch as the upgrade, but went simpson for extra cash and pod…..the world is a happy place…especially if doch misses

Iconic · 23/06/2017 at 16:35

Do I trade Sandilands >> Macrae via Nankervis and Fyfe >> J. Lloyd and have him as a swing-man until I upgrade Berry to premium MID? Will mean Lloyd acts as D7/M9…
Thoughts appreciated community!

    joe · 24/06/2017 at 00:04

    Tentative yes, but it's not perfect.

    Does it have to be via Nankervis?

jordanandeddie · 23/06/2017 at 16:36

Someone please sacrifice one of their children to the SC deities, it is the only way to appease them and allow Nankervis, Witts, Docherty and Dangerfield to feel a strengthening of their sore bones.

LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:38

Wondering if anyone in the community can match my outs/still injured this week.

JJK, sandi, cousins, myers, fisher, ablett, fyfe, sandi, schrenberg.


    manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 16:50

    I can go close!

    They are not confirmed but the potentials are:

    Shaz Ryan Fyfe Selwood Cousins Sandi Steele Nank Danger Doc Goldy

      LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:57

      I have ryan and doc too so holding my breath.

    wightyswarriors · 23/06/2017 at 16:51

    Things could be worse….cant quite think how, but they could be. If you are married, maybe something like your mother in law moving in would be close.

      pod · 23/06/2017 at 16:54

      ha ha good one, too much gloom in the panic room.

        LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:58

        well im visting my future father in law in the gold coast so that's gonna be a tricky one. thanks for the reminder 😉

RodneyGrinter · 23/06/2017 at 16:53

I can match you LJ7 – replace Ablett with Kelly and I'm right there!

    LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:58

    I feel you.

Ben · 23/06/2017 at 16:54

Fisher is playing right?

    LoganJosh7 · 23/06/2017 at 16:58

    out – achilles

    SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 16:58


RodneyGrinter · 23/06/2017 at 16:56

Wrong….. #GoneFishering

One Touch Wonder · 23/06/2017 at 17:00

Ok who's idea was it to have Thursday Football? Missed lockout last night, have TMitch and Greenwood on my bench with NO E. Anyone who thinks they are having a bad week can think of me.

    wightyswarriors · 23/06/2017 at 17:07

    I read the papers and watched the news… prob !!

    gator59 · 23/06/2017 at 17:39

    Well F#ck me.. You mean to say that you have NO SHARK MOVES!!!

    Captain Risky · 23/06/2017 at 18:05

    Are you playing me in a league this week? One of my opponents has done the same, such a pity….

James · 23/06/2017 at 17:00

Do I keep my trades of Berry to Ryan and Barrett to Merrett or do I change my second trade to Fyfe to Merrett?

    SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 17:06

    Wait 90 minutes to make sure Ryan is playing then think about it. I'd hold Fyfe though

      SCathiest · 23/06/2017 at 17:09

      Whoops, he won't be confirmed today. Sorry

Jay · 23/06/2017 at 17:03

They get a 20% pay rise, now they're all chuckin' a sickie!!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/06/2017 at 17:24

    Pure gold that!
    Ripping call.

    DeeSupreme · 23/06/2017 at 21:33

    Jay that is Deelightful and Deezerves to be back at the top of recent comments

      Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:50


JRod · 23/06/2017 at 17:03

DEF – Laird – Docherty – Rance – Shaw – Newman – Hibberd (Marchbank Scharenberg)
Will be going Marchbank to Ryan this week.
Really want Jake LLoyd. Could go Barrett/Fyfe to Lloyd in midfield this week to help but don't know if this is a good move longterm as there is no obvious spot in my backline for a switch in the run home.
Do I just let LLoyd pass and spend the bank this week on premo mid?

JRod · 23/06/2017 at 17:05

If only making one downgrade this week which is the better option:
1. Marchbank to Ryan
2. Barrett to Mountford

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 19:36

    Ryan cheaper with higher points and lower BE. Same JS.
    Can also wait till Sunday before making the trade.

Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 17:09

RYAN LIVES. Side note Pickett is playing

    Bock Choy · 23/06/2017 at 17:16

    Pickett has a break even of 19 and is not guarantee to make it!

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 17:23

      rejoice. Pickett is playing. Nothing to worry about then

Shake n bake · 23/06/2017 at 17:12

Want help, my fwd line consists of Heeney Buddy Dahl Ryder Macrea & Lynch. I have Greenwood as my emg and Eddy as my 2nd bench player im going to put Eddy on but for who????? Im thinking Lynch with no Ablett and Hall and saints not bad down back with Brown and Carlisle??

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 18:04

    I won't answer that because of a conflict of interest Shaker….
    OK take off Macrae!!

    Dutch · 23/06/2017 at 19:11

    Do you have bank in the ruck? If yes swap with Ryder and bench nank

      Shake n bake · 23/06/2017 at 19:22

      Rucks are Goldy & Jakobs

Mavs17 · 23/06/2017 at 17:13

Yeah stuff Fyfe
I give up on him
In comes Bont and Maynard
Out Fisher and Fyfe

Please for the love of god Selwood and Nank play this week!!!

Nick · 23/06/2017 at 17:15

Hey guys! Wanting to bring in a DPP forward/mid rookie…
Who out of Bolton or Callum Brown?

SCdonkey · 23/06/2017 at 17:15

Urgh!! Good thing, I just taken my valium and antidepressant. Might as well take the sedative 100mg tablet too, will knock me out for at least 16hrs and hopefully when i wake up Rd14 is over.

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:21

    Share the load Donk. This is a living nightmare

    No one · 23/06/2017 at 22:39

    It's not that bad, the dirty, stinkin' bombres got beaten…..

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 22:59

    Valium and its clones are for control not cure. If you want an alternative to Valium and quetiapine that isn't part of a billion dollar marketing plan grow some pot. Unless you're bipolar.

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 23:03

    If you're bipolar, grow a LOT of pot the 'ups' can create as much grief as the 'downs'.

Nick · 23/06/2017 at 17:15

Hey guys! Wanting to bring in a DPP forward/mid rookie…
Who out of Bolton or Callum Brown?

Jim_bob321 · 23/06/2017 at 17:16

Great recovery from Scooter!

    No one · 23/06/2017 at 22:36

    Would've preferred that he played out the game last week.

Darcbruh · 23/06/2017 at 17:16

My last week's move
Fyfe>Jelwood has payed off after not looking so good Thursday night.

Jess · 23/06/2017 at 17:22

Now Sunday teams have been finalised. What trades should I make?
Myers – Ryan, Swing Berry in Middle? Insurance if Selwood is a late out?
DEF: Doch, Adams, Hibberd (Melb), Shaw, Tuohy, Newmann (Berry, Hibberd – Nth)
MID: Danger, Pendles, S.Selwood, Fyfe, JPK, Merrett, Beams, Bont, S-Pepper (Fyfe, Myers, Cousins)
RUC: Nank, Martin (Sandi)
FWD: Dahl, Macrae, Lynch, Buddy, Parsons, Greenwood (Strnadica, Eddy)
12 Trades – Only 3K

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 17:41

    Gee you are really up against it having Fyfe twice 🙂

      Jess · 23/06/2017 at 18:37

      Oops, yeah haha. Fyfe is on Bench.

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 17:47

    The only one really stinking up your team on field is Parsons..
    I'm assuming you are waiting on Gawn's price to drop before trading out Nankervis or Sandilands..

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 18:41

    Yeah I'd do that trade Jess, Myers to Ryan, insurance in the middle, good call.

      Jess · 23/06/2017 at 18:47

      Would you get Lloyd this week or do you think I can just do the 1 trade to free up a little cash

        Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 19:18

        Who were you thinking of trading out for Lloyd?..anyways, if you wan't him, this is the week to get him. good luck.

          Jess · 23/06/2017 at 19:20

          Would really be Pepper or Berry, but they are both playing. Not sure if I just hold that extra trade and reassess Lloyd next week.

            Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 19:23

            Yeah maybe the best thing to do, even if he scores a 100 he might only go up 15 or 20 grand. Still cheap next week.

SirSamuel016 · 23/06/2017 at 17:26

This injury to fyfe, although apparently only costing him this week, is making me think about trading him out. Don't want to waste a trade but at the same time he's been underperforming a fair bit this year imo.

    Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 17:34

    Never trust Lyon, trade him out while you have the chance just look at Sandi

      Derek · 23/06/2017 at 17:40

      he has had the bye to recover and he is still not ok. must be more injured than we thought

      SirSamuel016 · 23/06/2017 at 17:43

      I have 10 trades left so if I trade Fyfe it puts me down to 9. Trading him out gives me 571k to use, so should I go for someone cheap like Robbie Gray? Already brought in Bont this round so I'll have to have a look at who is a good pick up.

TheBenchmark25 · 23/06/2017 at 17:30

I'm swelling in the jocks hearing all this carnage
I love it…. nothing like a good drama series to keep us thinking ahead

Ablett my only out so far Which gives me greenswoods score anyway

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 18:39

    Least someone got lucky. Good luck benchmark

      TheBenchmark25 · 23/06/2017 at 19:29

      I'll still stuff it up somehow. I'm actually riding my luck on big bad buddy to kick a bag tonight. I've put the c on him having already used the vc on Mitchell
      All the best for this round pieman

        TheBenchmark25 · 24/06/2017 at 07:23

        That was a bad idea

        pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:30

        Almost paid off, if only he kicked 4.2 instead of 0.6.

Danny · 23/06/2017 at 17:42

Who averages more from here: J Cameron, P Ryder ,C Wingard OR N Roo?

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 19:43

    Ryder, NRoo, Wingard, Cameron

Pom · 23/06/2017 at 17:47

Can chop Berry for Mountford or Stewart for Ryan.
Who has better job security?
Make more coin from Stewart to Ryan is my current plan.
Good luck to everyone who has been bent over by the SC Gods.

    Juzzy · 23/06/2017 at 18:05

    Mountford did a bloody good job tagging Steven last week.

    Ryan played well too but knowing Ross and his penchant for bringing in the "old guard" if finals are in view …

    Maybe go with the coin … or flip one.
    Stewart to Ryan for mine. Good Luck.

Bells E Bubb · 23/06/2017 at 17:54

Even my spudtacular bench cover Zac Dud Fisher isn't bothering to play this week, instead deciding to join Ablett, Scooter, Cousins at a men's sauna instead. Hope they are all happy and have the decency to give each other a reach around while they are at it.
Save some room in the tub boys for Nanks and Witts who will no doubt join you to give me 3 donuts for the round.

    Pom · 23/06/2017 at 18:04

    Scooter Is named on field cobba.

    SF4 · 23/06/2017 at 18:20

    Scooters playing mate, named in the guts too.

      Bells · 23/06/2017 at 19:24

      Great! I might get out of this with no donuts as Josh DC named too! Nanks is now on my ruck bench covering Witts. Hope one or the other plays. Taking Greenwood's score in forward line.
      BTW No homophobia intended above. Everyone shag whoever you want and be happy!

Luke · 23/06/2017 at 18:00

Defense is already pretty much finished for me prior to this round, which complicates how I'll get Lloyd in:

I could trade him into the Mids, but would I really want him there for a few weeks?

I'm tossing up getting in Merrett or Lloyd as my second last upgrade needed for my Mids (2 spots to fix up).

My Defense: Doc, Adams, Hibberd, Shaw, Laird, Simpson

My Mids: Danger, JPK, TMitch, Treloar, Beams, S.Selwood, Barrett, Bolton (Fyfe, Fisher, Hibberd)

What do you guys reckon? Still get in Lloyd or Merrett?

    Cliffy · 23/06/2017 at 18:00

    Forgot to mention defensive bench is Stewart and Scharenberg.

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 19:47

    Concentrate on your MIDs .. pretty weak whereas your DEF is fairly strong …

Stupid Coach · 23/06/2017 at 18:07

Great work again Patch. You've made me laugh and cry at the same time – no mean feat. Looking​ forward to the return of the great McKernan. Emerging from the carnage, need advice from the Community. Options are as follows:
1. Stewart to Ryan and Myers to Heeney, BONT or MacRae.
2. Keep Stewart and trade Myers to Brown and Fyfe to any of the above or Martin or Zorko.

    Stupid Coach · 23/06/2017 at 18:19

    Also -if I keep Fyfe should I put the E on Mountford or Bolton or should I put one of them on the field.

jockreynolds · 23/06/2017 at 18:10

You're a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day for fantasy footballers Patch. Brilliant!!!

phil · 23/06/2017 at 18:11

vice captain heeney, kennedy or pendlebury
any chance buddy could go big? hes about due

SirSamuel016 · 23/06/2017 at 18:11

Any ideas on who to bring in for Fyfe? Got 571k to use in the trade and my mid is current Danger, TMitch, Treloar, Pendles, Hanners, The Bont (who I traded in this round), Priddis, Fyfe (of course), Bench is barrett, cousins and mountford.

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 18:13

    Merrett is well priced just under your limit.

    Leeds17 · 23/06/2017 at 18:31

    Merrett or Neale

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 18:13

Also sweet Scooter is playing, wonder if he'll go "TWANGY" in the first qtr….

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:23

    Yeah I'm worried about Scooter playing a week after a hammy tear. Seems like another disaster waiting to happen

Jarryd · 23/06/2017 at 18:15

Hey guys, in need of some help. Traded Scooter to Zerrett, and Marchbank to Ryan but with Fyfe out I want to reverse my trades to switch and keep Scooter now that he's been named. I'm not able to do it right now on the site, is that because of the rolling lockout? v confused

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 18:18

    Unfortunately, you can't reverse trades after game 1 starts.

    Juzzy · 23/06/2017 at 18:20

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Mate.
    Once the round has started you can not reverse trades.
    You can only make trades involving players that have not yet played this round.

    Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 18:22

    Yes, Harsh but revesals cannot be done after the first lockout. So you need to ride with Zerrett and Ryan. Good trades though

Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 18:20

Thoughts on who i get up forward (Premo)? And why? Can afford anyone Options anyone other then : Dalh, Yeo, Mcrae, Buddy, Lynch (Nank in rucks). Thanks community hope you are having a Ok round so far and come home strong.

    TheBenchmark25 · 23/06/2017 at 18:39

    Heeney wouldn't be a bad choice

johnno2908 · 23/06/2017 at 18:38

Traded Fyfe to Ablett last week…

    Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 18:42

    Wow! Unlucky mate, that really sucks

    Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 19:49

    Supercoach gods at work.

TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 18:46

Plonk Nank on the bench and play Mummy and the big Stef mate.

TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 18:47

Is it time to trade Fyfe or hold for another week. Fyfe is really starting to give me the sh-ts.

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 18:55

    Depends on your cover I suppose TH, been crap tho I punted him last week.

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 19:06

      I am seriously considering it. I can go Fyfe to Heeney (BE 65) via DPP (Bolton). I already traded in Jakey Lloyd this week, perhaps I should make it a Sydney double this week? Heeney is still great value at $513K. Bloody tempting. Got 40 minutes to ponder.

        Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 19:11

        I like it

          TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 19:16

          Its so friggin tempting. That kid is a bloody jet. I need some more grunt up forward now that JJK has been retired to graze in the paddock. I also have the Nank still up there with a couple of other underachievers such as Lynch and Buddy. The clock is ticking…….

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 19:38



    Time to pray and hope for the SC gods to spare me more pain………

INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 18:50

I think Chris Scott pumping up Scooter all week may have led to Ross leaving Fyfe at home. And then he pulls the rug from under him & Scooter is a later out. The way this round is going It's almost a certainty

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 18:53

    It would not surprise me one bit Pieman.

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 18:56

    Ha, probably right there Pie.
    Dangers an interesting one, will they wrap him in cotton wool now Fyfes out too?

      INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:24

      Playing at home with no Sandi or Fyfe is like a raising the white flag. Don't bet against Danger being a late out

        BlueNath · 23/06/2017 at 19:38

        Danger 200+ this week?

    DeeSupreme · 23/06/2017 at 21:28

    Thanks for the heads up I'll keep him on the bench to avoid a Deezaster

Borko · 23/06/2017 at 18:52

Who to trade? Fisher or Myers? Can't see either playing next week to be honest

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 19:21

    Fisher has an achilles, not sure how bad.

      Borko · 23/06/2017 at 19:29

      Gonna trade myers … don't think he will be back next week. at least fisher is a chance if pickett plays poorly and injury isn't too bad. looks like he just pulled out today. both will be gone by R16 anyway so not a big deal

Carl · 23/06/2017 at 18:56

Elliott Yeo or Isaaic Heeney

    Northerner · 23/06/2017 at 19:13

    Either good. Probably Yeo

    Pman · 23/06/2017 at 19:22

    I have both but I'd make Yeo the priority of the two.

    redherringfc · 23/06/2017 at 19:25


    Yeo is not a premium. he may be top 6 forward for the year, but i will argue til i'm blue in the face he is not a premium this year.

      BlueNath · 23/06/2017 at 19:36

      Well, to be fair you are not going to have Yeo in the mid. So if he is top 6 FWD, then isn't that surely the definition of premium. Has only gone under 100 three times this year and avg 109. I dont mean to make you blue in the face Red, but you will have to make a stronger case

        redherringfc · 23/06/2017 at 19:57

        Watch rounds 14 to 23

        My crystal ball says he will turn to shit, just like last year when he continually turned up massive piles of the brown stuff instead of sc points, as soon as i bought him.

        Average of 80 from here on. Ends the year sub 400k. (i hope, because he is not coming into my team and everyone else has him)

Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 18:58

Hope scooter doesn't tag neale bloody hell!!

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 19:16

    Hope he does (go cats)

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 19:22

    Wont happen. If Scooter tags Neale, that hammy of his will tear in half at the 5 minute mark of the first quarter. I need Scooter on the park, be a good boy, and rack up a few SC points. Just cruise around on the wing, get some nice touches, perhaps snag a nice goal or two…. Thats all!

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:25

    Been wondering the same thing Hawkas now that Fyfe is staying home

L G · 23/06/2017 at 18:59

The conundrum, upgrade Barrett for Zerrett or Neale…

Northerner · 23/06/2017 at 19:12

Ok. Help please. I was going to trade Stewart for Lloyd. However I have no bench cover in mids if Danger is a late out. I could leave Stewart and instead trade Fyfe for Lloyd and move Swallow into my mid bench for coverage.

The second option costs a trade in the long term, but is safer for this week.

I have no idea which way to go and I've got just over half an hour.

    hedski · 23/06/2017 at 19:17

    I think coverage will be important with the carnage already this week, and more likely to come, you can always swing Lloyd back and trade Stewart later, still making cash.

Neverweaken · 23/06/2017 at 19:17

Fyfe, Ablett, Kelly. Maybe Nank. Maybe Witts. Added to Zac Jones suspension. Fun week. Oh and Thursday football so forgot to E greenwood. Got up to 4500 in rankings over the byes. Was fun while it lasted. 12 trades so might burn some. Ablett to Neale and see if I can get in Ryder

    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:27

    I'd say most have been hit hard. But 12 trades is a great thing to have today. Go nuts. You've saved them up for the rainy day & this is it

Pman · 23/06/2017 at 19:21

Buddy or JPK as VC tonight with the C on Danger??

    manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 19:47

    I'm going JPK and Danger

BrownlowBoy · 23/06/2017 at 19:22

I'm trading Sandilands and am in need of a ruckman or I'm copping a 0. Suggestions please. I personally will not touch Kreuzer at his price.

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 19:25


    INPieman · 23/06/2017 at 19:39

    Have no confidence in any of the rucks. But Grundy might be worth a punt. Seems to be reasonably durable & he did finish last year well. But again it's a pick without confidence

    manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 19:48

    Gawn? Early and more $ than if you wait. Up to you if you want the donut

matt · 23/06/2017 at 19:24

what do people think. gonna trade in lloyd this week – gonna bring him into the mids for either SPP or Barret. Can't decide which one though. thoughts?

oh, and doing it this way to cover Fyfe. Next week will send him down back by trading Stewart and bringing in an ultra-premo.

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 19:33

    I'd trade Barrett, he won't fatten up much more, pretty similar to SPP, but I'd keep the one who's in the better Team.

    matt · 24/06/2017 at 11:07

    I ended up trading barret out. now, my next question is, I can have one of the following 3 onfield – stewart, SPP or Ryan. Which of the 3 do you think? I'm leaning towards either stewart or SPP – can't really decide. I'm leaning towards SPP, mainly because: 1. hes been a bit more consistent, (2) he's in a closer game so has higher scoring potential, and (3) if geelong dominate, the ball might not ever get anywhere near their defensive half! thoughts?

Daniel · 23/06/2017 at 19:35

Merrett, JPK or Pendles for VC??

    SC_Kev7 · 23/06/2017 at 19:41


    manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 19:47


Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 19:38

Sydney Swans thoughts on tagging Zerret? Have tried to tag Martin, Cotchin and JJ and all have had scores 106 Martin 106 Cotchin and 21 JJ and Zerret is a player who roams outside getting mostly first use

    Ja191 · 23/06/2017 at 20:20

    hopefully not mate, all my players are getting tagged 🙁 would be logical though

Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 19:43

Merret, Hanners or JPK as VC

    manolaki · 23/06/2017 at 19:47

    JPK for me

Neverweaken · 23/06/2017 at 19:48

Ablett traded, Yeo moved to midfield and Ryder in. Ryder and Witt in ruck with Nank forward. 158 k. Maybe Fyfe to Neale.
What is the scare on Witts?

    Holty · 23/06/2017 at 23:37

    Shoulder. Rucked half the game with his other arm last week. The good news is they dont have a ruck on the emergency list so seems good to go.

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 19:50

Hey guys, is the Mark Robinson in the 'Jock' tagged teams the real deal or just a copywank?
I have the tool this week..

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 20:05

    If it's this team…
    Mark Robinson….that's the real Robbo

      Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 20:14

      ''Tis…. I've scored a 1000s more points than Mrs R and he still is above me on the ladder .. go figure..

Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 19:50

Even with the carnage I am PUMPED for a non bye round, and it's Friday, and the swans are playing, does it get any better

Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 20:18

Spuddy might have to go soon. Really regretting bringing him in a few weeks back over Greene as my last forward…

Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 20:19

Come on Spuddy Franklin, don't think..just doooooo something!

    Jay · 23/06/2017 at 20:24

    Can't wait to rage trade him. Bloody spuddy Buddy. Nearly put the VC on him, LOL

      Pman · 23/06/2017 at 20:52

      I did put the VC on him 🙁

The Ranger · 23/06/2017 at 20:21

Fyfe to Parker next week is tempting.

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 20:23

Really enjoying Newman and Lloyd playing tiggy .. Newman only 18pts and Heeney only 12 pts !!! Eff-off CD .. Franklin not in the game … anyone with Heppell might want to check whether he is on the field … Merrett a SC gun … 2nd pick next year .. (can't fit him again n this year) Parker is back..

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 21:04

    Agree on Parker I'm looking at who I can drop for him next week. Probably Berry and have Parker/MMurphy at M8/9 scooter at M10

Dean · 23/06/2017 at 20:25


Lloyd has a breakeven of 50 yet is only projected to rise $7,200 based on his 91 average.

Does anyone know how much cash he increases per point over his average (91) ?

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 20:29

    The projections are based on previous games against the team he is playing combined with his average.. the concussion round has skewed is average … nub of it is that SC is protecting he will score 66 this round … the way he is playing he will go up $25 – $30k

    Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 21:25

    Increase is based on projection not average.

Andy · 23/06/2017 at 20:27

Help! I need some guidance. Bring in Nick Riewoldt or Paddy Ryder this week?

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 20:32


    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 21:01


    Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 21:37


    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 22:27

    If you must, and they your only options, then Ryder.

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 20:27

Early call but I should have vc'd Parks over Budwah.
At least Lloyd is looking like a good trade in.

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 20:34

Not me, I traded him in an hour before the game… for Stewart.

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 21:00

    Never listen to the experts Mav follow your instincts. Fyffe to Lloyd for me, it was the only way to minimise Fyfes value loss

Don't Blush Baby · 23/06/2017 at 20:39

Hello Newman, nice goal mate

Joshua · 23/06/2017 at 20:55

cant wait to trade Franklin to gawn 🙂

Pman · 23/06/2017 at 20:56

Well I'm really regretting trading in Buddy last week for Steele as he stunk it up with 48 points and is on 25 lousy points at half time tonight and cannot get near it. If all of this wasn't bad enough I put the VC on him too thinking he'd go big against the Bombers. Everything I touch turns to shit this year.

    Mavs17 · 24/06/2017 at 00:10

    83 points isnt bad since he kicked 0.6

Hawkas2017 · 23/06/2017 at 20:59

Thank You BENCHMARK25 for telling me to grab Heeney and for thee 3 others who went thumbs up. Was 12 at QT but now 63 at HT. Thats why i picked him a 50 point quarter wow

    TheBenchmark25 · 24/06/2017 at 09:13

    No worries champ love the positive posts like these. 104 is respectable and he should be pretty consistent from here. Probably the most pleasing sign was he was at so many stoppages

Shake n bake · 23/06/2017 at 21:01

Should have started Buddy on the bench instead of Lynch.

TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2017 at 21:04

Buddy is "c" struck. He has modelling contracts in play now. Ten million to play footy not enough mate? Pull your finger out .

Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 21:24

Lloyd has been talked about as basically a must have this week on here…….

    Holty · 23/06/2017 at 21:52

    I told him not to as he already had 6 premo defenders. I said you would be better off bringing in a premium mid over Lloyd. He was down on trades and still needed some upgrades. He wanted to play Adams in the mids which i suggested he was wasted there. If Lloyd ends up averaging 110+ for the rest of the year, ill be the first to put my hand up and say sorry mate.
    In the end, i only gave my advice so people can take it or leave it.

      Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 22:00

      Makes sense if defense is full.

        Holty · 23/06/2017 at 22:07

        In the end i hope the Bont averages 110+ for the rest of the year for him.

Joshua · 23/06/2017 at 21:33

Why the F did I pick Franklin over Heeney
Traded in a problem

    Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 21:36

    Not sure but I remember people suggested Heeney. Key position players will always be a roller coaster ride small scores and big ones. Don't stress yet. Heeney will be more consistent but lower ceiling. To me Heeney a no brainer gets mid time.

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 21:33

FFS if Buddy kicked like Heeney tonight he'd have 7

    Whatyasmokin · 23/06/2017 at 21:42

    Yeah just his accuracy keeping his score down. I wouldn't be rage trading him next week though.

      hedski · 23/06/2017 at 21:52

      Had him from the start, will keep riding the rollercoaster Smokes.

    Shake n bake · 23/06/2017 at 22:34

    Still think he was better than only 16pts in the last qtr!!

B-rian · 23/06/2017 at 22:01

I also advised you not to get him. He was great value but you didn't need him. You would have been down to 5 trades with 7 premo defenders and only 7 premo mids and 5 premo forwards. Didn't make sense.

But you shouldn't have traded Fyfe either IMO.

    Mavs17 · 23/06/2017 at 22:56

    Yeah well Fyfe is officially stuffed and is a spud. So i would rather have 5 trades and bont then suffer with 2 rookies on field…

      Skinny McThin · 24/06/2017 at 00:12

      Wow mav you're a fragile little fella. Don't be throwing tantrums just because you get good advice that doesn't provide instant results.
      I'll put the toys back in the cot but if you keep carrying on like pieman when reads 'wombat' and throw them out again they'll stay on the floor.

Holty · 23/06/2017 at 22:03

How on earth does someone get paid a million a year and still not know how to kick a goal?

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:13

    …..and then dish it off when he gets an easy set shot for his first goal, frustrating to have him lately.

      Holty · 23/06/2017 at 22:24

      I guess thats what you get with buddy. Bloody hard being an owner. But i guess he did kick a goal with his 6 behinds

        Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 22:26

        Bringing Buddy in over Greene because of the bye will haunt me for the rest of this year. Buddy wasn't even in my best 18 that round…

        Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:28

        Hahaha good one 🙂

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 22:37

    They needed 7 points for the win and a draw wasn't good enough. Buddy is a genius forward and new that a goal would destroy any chance of winning. What happened after the moment that Buddy got the ball was the only possible way that the swans could win. Well done Buddy you've avoided being traded out.
    I bet a few prematurely smug fans of the ……. are confused right now.

      Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 22:41

      I'm sure that the 5 he missed before that weren't intentional.

    Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:48

    It sure Looked like a goal to me though that last one, will be talked about. I do wonder what the point of goal reviews are if they are scared to review or put available technology in place to take the ? Out.

Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 22:21

What have I just watched. WHAT A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:22

    Bloody brilliant from Swans those last 2 minutes!

Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:21

Oh my god what a finish!!!!!! hahahah awesome game

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 22:23

Holy crap!!!
Swans just saved me a dozen beers double or nothing!!!!

    Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:31


    Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:36

    Cost me the dozen I drank in the last 3 minutes!

Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:23


    Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:24

    That is all……I'm sick of every week being a grand final though…..

      Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:30

      Bloody great win though, they're still alive and that's what matters…could do anything from here.

Notorious mac · 23/06/2017 at 22:30

    Horse · 23/06/2017 at 23:03

    I don't barrack for Essendon but what a pathetic comment. What a loser you are tough guy keyboard warrier.

      Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 23:15

      My horse can't spell either.

      Notorious mac · 24/06/2017 at 07:49

      How is it a pathetic comment. It was a truthful comment. They are convicted drug cheats. I suppose you would support a comeback of Lance Armstrong too.

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:28

    Awesome game to watch, Swans deserved it in the end. If Buddy had kicked straight would've been all over earlier.

Ja191 · 23/06/2017 at 22:33

ughh on another night that's a 160 from buddy bloody frustrating though

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 22:34

Goddard, never liked him, but he often makes me happy… hahaah hah ha ha ha hahha ha

    Horse · 23/06/2017 at 23:02

    He would be embarrassed by that action.

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 14:00

    I reckon he had some cash on the Swans. He made a lot of errors last night.

Derek · 23/06/2017 at 22:41

Footy is the winner tonight

    Horse · 23/06/2017 at 23:01


    pod · 24/06/2017 at 14:01

    Love this game.

Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 22:47

How is it that Lloyd cracks the ton with a minute to go and ends up on 96 … and Newman only gets 4 pts for a goal…

    Lazza · 23/06/2017 at 22:52

    Scores weren't final… Lloyd now 99 and Newman upgraded to 90.

    joe · 23/06/2017 at 23:31

    Because the game hadn't ended yet and other players earned big points in the last two minutes. Remember that there is a maximum 3,300 points which are awarded in each game. To quote their own explanation of the scoring:

    "Unlike some fantasy games that award points for a kick no matter where it goes or consider a mark in front of goal when scores are level in the final quarter the same as accepting a backwards pass in defence, SuperCoach rewards a player’s real impact in a match."

    And the last few minutes had backwards passes in defence and a contested mark to win the game in the goalsquare. Every player's score went down by at least one except Rohan's.

No one · 23/06/2017 at 22:49

Joe Daniher kicks a shocker.
DippingWoody gets brushed aside.
Buddy marks plays on and duffs it,
Goddard's kick smothered.
Hardly an inspiring finish.

    Horse · 23/06/2017 at 23:01

    You are a fool. Fantastic game.

    joe · 23/06/2017 at 23:10

    As usually, everyone has a different opinion to No one.

    Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 23:14

    Art imitates life.

    Cogla13 · 24/06/2017 at 09:37

    Very appropriate name.

Skinny McThin · 23/06/2017 at 22:49

Getting Heeney 2 weeks ago instead of McCrae is looking like a good move but swapping Fyffe for Lloyd has only moved an 'almost 100' from my M8 to my final D premo. I could have got Roberton instead arrrrgghh! Bargains can cost a lot

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 01:07

    I don't get it. How is Lloyd not a bargain?

Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 22:50

Me too hed…. me too….

Russty_ · 23/06/2017 at 22:51

Fyfe to Z.Merrett would've been a good trade this week.

    The_Bird · 23/06/2017 at 22:52


    Holty · 23/06/2017 at 23:30

    Im going Neale instead. Zerrett does look bloody good though

    DeeSupreme · 23/06/2017 at 23:44

    Yep and Blues to win the 1995 flag would have been a good bet.

JohndJames · 23/06/2017 at 22:56

Two great finishes by the Swans in a row,my poor cat had another scare with me screaming in delight.

    wombatsfc · 23/06/2017 at 23:21

    Do it for Australia John, kill the cat.

      neil demons delight · 24/06/2017 at 00:38

      gather you don't like pussies

Swans2012 · 23/06/2017 at 23:00

God zerret just quietly goes about his business doesn't he, barely remember seeing him called and he racks up a 140….. my first picked next year…..

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 00:48

    Same here. Him and Oliver. Yeo and Heeney too. Young guns for the win.

    Northernsoul74 · 24/06/2017 at 08:31

    My best trade this year was bringing him in as first mid upgrade.

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:32

    I've been a fan of Zerrett since last year, had him then too. Love his quick hands and footy smarts around the congestion, amazing.

Mark · 23/06/2017 at 23:13

Pendles or Danger captain? Safe choice is probs Danger but under injury cloud. Already used VC

    Pman · 23/06/2017 at 23:19

    I'm in the same boat having rolled the VC dice on Buddy. With Danger under a cloud and Docherty as well I'm leaning towards making Pendles Captain. The Pies need a win, he'll be fresh after a week off and he could go large. In hindsight I should've made Pendles VC…D'oh!

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 00:47

    What's this danger injury cloud? They should probably rest him anyway can't see freo putting up much of a fight……

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:34

    Danger at the Cattery is a good choice. Not sure about the weather forecast but if it's wet Jelwood will go big.

Defying_Madness · 23/06/2017 at 23:16

Switched from Zerret to JPK VC which is unfortunate, however do I still take JPK's score?

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 00:44

    Take it more to lose than gain.

    TheBenchmark25 · 24/06/2017 at 09:18

    Tag it and bag it I reckon

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 13:38

    No way, gota roll the dice if you have Danger, Jelwood, Pendles or Dusty.

Sam · 23/06/2017 at 23:26

Was originally going Stewart – Ryan and Barrett – Neale. But the Fyfe injury has me second guessing myself. I could go Fyfe – Dusty instead. But i would still require 2 more upgrades with only 7 trades left. Sticking with these trades means Fyfe goes to pine and SPP comes onfield.

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 00:43

    Low trades hold Fyfe stick with the plans. Look at what happened with Fyfe to gaz……now has a calf injury which could be a nightmare.

      Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:48

      I'm low trades but I flicked Fyfe to Bont before freo bye although not the best trade It's worked out so far haha

    Derek · 24/06/2017 at 09:44

    Stewart, Newman, Greenwood are providing those with low trades a good opportunity to keep them going knowing the points aren't going to be too far behind a premium. In a few weeks time, depending on trades, they could be the last upgrades but only needing 1 trade because of their price increase, or if trades have run out, they won't be the worst F6, M9, D6 running around.

    So maybe keep Stewart for now, trade Fyfe who is clearly injured and might miss more weeks

hedski · 23/06/2017 at 23:29

Swans vs Cats GF??
Would be sweet.

DeeSupreme · 23/06/2017 at 23:41

The second best thing to come from tonight's game is channel 7's highlights package that features Stewart with an enormous gorby hanging off his chin. He kicked a crucial goaland wondered why no team mates got in close for a hug. Looked like he'd had a porno facial Classic

    Skinny McThin · 24/06/2017 at 00:04

    Poor guy, if he ever becomes famous that will played every time he's on TV

joe · 23/06/2017 at 23:42

Anyone else feel like they are still learning this game? Especially with Thursday / Friday night combinations?

I put the "e" on Greenwood as a forward and put McInnes on the ground, just in case Greenwood scored well. If not, I'd trade McInnes to a premium = WIN. I save the trade for another week and make some money.
I decided to switch MCrouch in his bye to GAJ last week as a POD = LOSE.

    Rick Grimes · 24/06/2017 at 03:36

    That's the way it goes in this caper, always a curve ball or swift kick in the nuts just waiting round the corner. But it's also the beauty of it. If it was easy we wouldn't play.

DeeSupreme · 23/06/2017 at 23:47

I'm happy for you mate, south Melbourne is my second favourite team

manolaki · 24/06/2017 at 00:16

Is anyone taking the VC on JPK's 127?

    Whatyasmokin · 24/06/2017 at 00:41

    I would

      Deeboss · 24/06/2017 at 03:28


        Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:46

        I shoulda replied on this comment instead of dropping my own! I'm in the same spot pretty sure you gotta take it, greedy not to

neil demons delight · 24/06/2017 at 00:33

feel for the bomber supporters real tough

    JohndJames · 24/06/2017 at 00:55

    I don't,there are some teams I just don't like and Essendon is one of them.

    Bells E Bubb · 24/06/2017 at 01:04


    Newman deserved 30 points for the late goal. Papley deserved 20 for the late late smother.

      Pitch 72 · 24/06/2017 at 08:51

      3 years ago they would have.

        Deeboss · 25/06/2017 at 05:51

        young team…

Rick Grimes · 24/06/2017 at 03:33

Do I take Merrett's score as VC? Just kidding. With all this carnage it's nice to bank that 140.

Who do I play on field: Mountford, Brown or Deluca? I'm tempted to go the latter. He was supposed to be a non-playing loop hole and his selection cost me Greenwood's score. So I feel he owes me a ton.

kop · 24/06/2017 at 04:04

Field SPP or Barrett? Cant loophole

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 08:02

    Coin flip

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:26

    I'd play SPP, he looks and plays like the big boys.

      Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:44


        Deeboss · 25/06/2017 at 05:50

        SPP 82SC

The BONT · 24/06/2017 at 07:09

After watching the game i had to cry myself to sleep

Cal · 24/06/2017 at 07:44

Option 1: Berry to Ryan
Option 2: SPP to Ryan (DPP)
Option 3: Barrett to Ryan (DPP)

    Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:43

    Depends on your tightness of cash and who your looking to bring in i flicked barret this week because I couldn't afford him to lose any cash if I put off my upgrade for another week

Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:20

Take kennedys vc score?
Also I'm holding jjk on the bench this week
Is it worth just playing parsons till he gets back or should I flick him would enjoy flicking him because I'm a trade a Hollic and I'd love to climb the ranks for a bit of self pride, has been a shocker year

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 08:36

    With clouds over danger & Doch you should take that. If you've held JJK this long hold. I'll be riding the Parsons train with ya. Lord help us!

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 08:37

    Take JPK's score if you have no gonads. Do you have Danger, Pendles or Dusty?

      Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:40

      I've got them all haha but surely there's nothing wrong with a 127

        Sam_01 · 24/06/2017 at 08:41

        I tell you what is very appetising the fact that big maxy gawn is back and now will drop close to if not 100k in the next couple rounds

          INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 08:53

          Let's hope he doe drop 100k. Delicious

BigBoyBananana · 24/06/2017 at 08:59

Everyone else panicking and I've just quietly gone with SPP- Merrett and Fyfe-Grundy by swinging Nank forward and Yeo to midfield…

Waiting for a random late out now that i've said that

BlueNath · 24/06/2017 at 09:51

I'm holding off on trading as long as possible as I want to not be left short. So any word on:
Docherty (apparently sore)?
Scooter (and if he does play can he produce a decent score)?

    Deeboss · 25/06/2017 at 05:50

    I seriously hope the Nank plays…. please!

Ja191 · 24/06/2017 at 10:07

any idea on how long abblett is out for? if its a week i'll hold

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 10:32

    Hoping to play next week

    waynesworld · 24/06/2017 at 12:22

    I believe it will be a season ending injury he wants to play his 300th with the cats lol

      Deeboss · 25/06/2017 at 05:49

      He'll be right next week….

Bradk · 24/06/2017 at 10:17

Rockliff as VC?

Can't think of any other VC with the potential to score enough to take over danger.

Have been lucky so far this week. So far untouched by the carnage, and have so far had Greenwood, Laird, Mitchell, Merrett, Heeney and Newman (6/635).

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 13:35

    VC Rocky for sure.

JEL · 24/06/2017 at 10:26

Doing the same switch.
I've got Stef & Sauce in the ruck, so I'm sacrificing Nank's score to get Greenwood's.

Monsta · 24/06/2017 at 11:02

Hey community, A bit new to this. Have a situation where my emergency Cousins didnt play. Can I pick another ( Barrett ) to cover Selwood or do I get the 0. Cheers for any replies.

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 11:09

    I think you get the lowest score if you put the E on 2 players

      hedski · 24/06/2017 at 11:35

      Thinking you'd get Barrett's cos Cousins didn't play so no score?

        BlueNath · 24/06/2017 at 11:56

        you WILL get Barrets score as '0' for an emergency will not count. Otherwise, the lowest of two playing emergencies is what is used

gator59 · 24/06/2017 at 11:19

Take Zerretts score as VC or risk it on Danger..

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 11:25

    Have to take a 141

      gator59 · 24/06/2017 at 11:30

      The only loophole i have to get Zerretts score is scharenberg and hope he's not a late in

    hedski · 24/06/2017 at 11:33

    Take 140 easy.
    Good luck in a graders I'm playing you, your looking good.

      gator59 · 24/06/2017 at 11:37

      thanks hedski and good luck to you mate..

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 13:34

    282 in the bank.

Monsta · 24/06/2017 at 11:24

Cheers Pieman

SCdonkey · 24/06/2017 at 11:51

A lesson learned, to never leave your phone open laying around when you have a 2 y.o. missed Dangers double score last week, the little bugger had put Gablett as C.

    INPieman · 24/06/2017 at 12:14

    At least your 2 year old knows a thing or 2 about footy. Could have put it on a Parsons type

Dan · 24/06/2017 at 12:26

Who to C, Pendles, Danger or Bont?

    pod · 24/06/2017 at 13:33

    The Bont is overdue but how do you go past the other two..

Paul · 24/06/2017 at 13:02

Wanted to go Stewart to Ryan but bit scared of having no cover on three lines this week. Also frustrated with having 8 playing forwards and Greenwood as emergency.

Is this a clever solution or a crazy, panicky move?
Fyfe OUT. Swing Yeo to MID. JJK IN.
I get an extra mid, Greenwood's 127 and hopefully Kennedy plays next week.
But I miss out on Ryan and the cash and I bring in a player that wasn't in my plans at all until now.

    Gaz · 24/06/2017 at 13:20

    Not sure about JJk – they were saying on the radio over here that he has a minor tear in his achillies – thats a bit risky for mine.What about Green?

    Gaz · 24/06/2017 at 13:22

    Watched Peel once and Ryan was very impressive – very good user of the ball.

    Holty · 24/06/2017 at 13:23

    Wait on kennedy mate. No guarantee he will be back next week.

    Paul · 24/06/2017 at 13:53

    Ok. Thanks for the warnings.
    I liked the idea because it was a fun and creative way around a few problems. But maybe it creates too many other problems.
    Yeah, Green is probably a better option but he doesn't help me get Greenwood's score this week.
    Think I'll just go with my original plan and deal with Fyfe next week.

Laurie · 24/06/2017 at 15:15

Need help please … it stupid to trade Rockcliff to Zorko? Will the SuperCoach gods curse me? 12 trades left any advice would be great?

    Northerner · 24/06/2017 at 15:28

    Hold. Rocky was ill. He'll come good.

    Russty_ · 24/06/2017 at 15:29

    If you think Rocky's injured and not 100%…no,not stupid, and also he'll lose another 40 grand at least this week.

      Laurie · 24/06/2017 at 17:10

      Thanks that's what I was worried about I did the trade so now I watch with baited breath

        Laurie · 24/06/2017 at 18:27

        Ahhhhh the SuperCoach gods have cursed me foolishness …I give up

          Russty_ · 24/06/2017 at 19:09

          Very unusual for Zorko to have such a down game, he'll bounce back Laurie.

            Laurie · 24/06/2017 at 19:56

            Thanks Russty….here's to next week!

Northerner · 24/06/2017 at 15:40

Any further news on Nank, Witts or Danger fitness?

There's no cheap non playing mid fwd loopholes playing tomorrow now Freo's hyphen has been named. So I need to bring one in tonight. Particularly Danger, as it depends whether I trade out Fyfe to get cover for Danger as I can swing Bolton off my forward bench – or trade out Parsons to pick up Greenwood's score.

JohndJames · 24/06/2017 at 17:17

Bloody Mumford,pick on someone your own size.

    Beezneez · 24/06/2017 at 17:40

    Fat prick.

    manolaki · 24/06/2017 at 17:41

    That is not cool. Beams injury is not what we needed

    Northernsoul74 · 24/06/2017 at 19:58

    They need to crack down on Mumford. He goes out to injure people. Look at the tackle on Libba that concussed him.

      Tibor · 24/06/2017 at 23:47

      He's got one coming for certain, hopefully it comes at a critical time that impacts on this mobs finals series

      Ruddigar · 25/06/2017 at 09:39

      He lumbers around never putting himself in a position to wear one and just picks off smaller blokes when they are courageous enough to be vulnerable and win the ball. There's one with your name on it coming you fat turd

Ja191 · 24/06/2017 at 17:39

rip beams owners

BigBoyBananana · 24/06/2017 at 22:35

We often get mad at players and especially champion data for their performances weekly, but how good is footy!

    Russty_ · 24/06/2017 at 23:32

    Bloody great this year, so many close games! I'm loving it.

Deeboss · 25/06/2017 at 05:37

Can't agree more, best sport in the planet…. no doubts about it. If you think you're physically tough, mentally strong, love being absolutely challenged, when you can't go any more…. blood, sweat and tears and force yourself to the next level. So hard to get in the AFL and when you do get in the league, to make an impact is another story….. for an ultimate athlete, it has to be said that AFL…. Australian rules football is the ultimate game and sport, love the game heaps! I wish it was more worldwide as it deserves to be…. but at the same time, a part of me wants to keep the game here. Worlds best secret…. fukkkk the world, now I'm being selfish. Thanks community…
