Loop Kennedy score last night of 127 for go with Danger for captain?

Ja191

I'd be sticking with the 127 especially with danger playing injured. Don't see him going big

Winter

Hard one can't go wrong doing either, I'd personally go Danger

MickyB

Im in the same situation and going danger. The rumours he is injured are laughable. Will go big vs freo

Swans2012

Take it, more to lose than gain

manolaki

I am in the same predicament. My rival this week has Danger as C. I bet if i take JPKs 127 Danger will end up with 150+

Nate

Hey guys, should I swing berry to defence via Hibberd, and trade him out for Ryan? Or trade out fisher for mountford? And keep berry in mids. Cheers guys!

MickyB

#2

Winter

Trade out Fisher to Ryan if you have Hibberd in defence

Winter

I love Zach Merrett

manolaki

He was my first trade in this week but after the carnage I needed to make some changes elsewhere. Hope he doesn't go up too much. He was my final mid to bring in. Either him or Mitchell.

Jim_bob321

What do u fellas think of Bont VC… or even C if Zorko VC doesn't satisfy

MickyB

Zorko vc bont c

Jim_bob321

Yeah that's what I was thinking, seeing Danger is 'injured'
Surely Bont tonnes up immensely tonight against North as Bulldogs are under pressure for top 8 contention

TRIGGER HAPPY

Who scores more?
Barrett or Ryan.
Can flick Adams into the mods for Fyfe or leave him in Def.
I think know much of a muchness lean get towards Barrett
Thoughts?

The Golden Ticket

I think the ball will be in freos defence, therefore allowing and giving Ryan a lot of opportunity to find the ball.

INPieman

Several lolly shops trashed in Sydney last night. Floggard in custody

The Golden Ticket

Do people think Lachie Neale is still worth bringing in even tho he has Fyfe out and sandi out this week, meaning he might cop a harder opponent and more attention than with Fyfe in the team. Also won't get first use of the ball as Sandi out. He scored poorly 2 rounds ago when they got smashed and Sandi was out.

If I didn't get Neale who else should I get?
Mids Currently, Danger, Merrett, Titch, Treloar, Murphy, Bont, Fyfe

Defying_Madness

Look at Neales scores last year. That should answer the question

James

Do I take JPK's 127 or C on Selwood, Danger or Doch?

Swans2012

Take it

Deeboss

Take

manolaki

I'm on the same boat but worried Danger will go large and come out with 150+

Defying_Madness

Take it you will lose 20 points max and could lose up to 50

pod

127 x 2 = f#*k all. All three of them will beat that. Jelwood at the Cattery best.

Randomcliche

Jelwood uh?

Borko

Shame Gawn comes up against WCE this week … that 200+ BE may be in reach!

INPieman

His interstate scoring last year was insane

Patch

Let us never have a friday quite that crazy ever again. I'm going to need a week to recover

INPieman

The gods were very very grumpy

CRIPPStoniteSC

Thoughts on Scharanberg to Howe or hold trade and field Ryan???

Mike

Have a bad feeling about Doch and Nank late outs Tomorrow

INPieman

Doch passed his fitness test this morning & will play

The Ranger

Unless Derek brings him in for Fyfe.
In which case, he misses three.
.

Defying_Madness

Please no, I am about to bring him in lmao

bUCKET__

Wouldn't mind seeing Nank given some further rest whilst he's on my bench in place of Greenwood's score…

Now that I've said as much, the gods will curse me in ways unimaginable

bUCKET__

Hmm first injury mid-game for the year for my team, with Beams down :/

Geelong 2017

How many trades do people have left? I have 9 and am playing for league finals rather than overall

undypuncher

Anyone know what the issue is with danger?

LetsGo

And is it serious enough to warrant taking the C off him?

Holty

You would hope if he is selected he would be 100% right to go. It would be very negligent for Geelong to risk their best player.

Holty

Hamstring tightness i heard

LetsGo

Do you fellas think R.Gray will be a fwd next year? Or will he stay as a mid

Hawkas2017

FWD or MID/FOR

Holmes_Heroes

Absolutely, altho the really interesting one would be considering the time he's spent forward this year, any chance of Bont being fwd elligible. Reckon if so my fwd line next year would be Gray Bont, 4 rookies.

Top Gun

Let's worry about this season first 😛

Daniel Z

I think a fair few of us may have written this one off…

TOPHAWK1

Treloar's disposals in that first quarter were retarded. Seriously mate, start using the pill properly!!! FFS

Defying_Madness

Adams also

INPieman

It is extremely difficult it kick the pill running flat out. Let alone hit a target. Treloar needs to slow down before he kicks it. If Buckley had half a clue he'd tell him

Holty

True pieman. Only a select few can do it. Ablett is one of them but even if he has time to settle, he will.

hedski

SPP to 50 Shades looks tempting next week, he's killing it (and cheap).

Holty

Wow those who were brave enough to select Gray this week, well done. Looking good.

hedski

Take a bow Rick Grimes.

Swans2012

So in hindsight 420k for Robbie gray as a potential m9/loophole might have been a good idea……

Top Gun

R Gray killing it. Congrats to those people who backed their judgement and brought him in.

Mavs17

He is playing Collingwood though.. no one is even on him

The Ranger

I still think he'll throw in the odd stinker whilst he's playing purely forward.
Bloody good to watch when he's up and about tho.

Richo

Community, trying to work a captain loophole and messing with my emergencies. If you have two emergencies selected in a position and one of them doesn't play, will you get the score of the one that did or the 'lowest score' as stated in the rules?

hedski

They don't score if they don't play Richo.

Richo

That's what I thought but wanted to be sure. Thanks hedski

Richo

Buckley stuffing around with pendles so may not need it now 🙁

Mavs17

Collingwood are Sh#t. And buckley is an idiot, why would you put pendles in the backline!

INPieman

Another brilliant move by Buckley. Took him 3/4 to work out he had no forward line. Any other coach would have had ben Reid there half way through the first quarter. Complete spud

Defying_Madness

Traded out Barret and kept Berry. Just thought I would let the community know that they should do the opposite to benefit from Barret's inevitable tonne.

hedski

Culled them both DM, probs both ton up.

Keenbutclueless

Barrett on minus 8!

Russty_

Good golf score 🙂

Dutch

I traded out spp and kept Barrett, proving a masterstroke so far – Barrett will struggle to get anywhere near his breakeven at this stage

Russty_

Seems like it was the right week to trade out Barrett..maybe he needs a rest.

Finnius123

Jezza Howe is an absolute gun POD

hedski

Been killing it Fin, glad I started with him.

musicissport

Yep got him in 4 weeks ago and hasn't looked back!

hedski

Every time I tip the pies……

musicissport

Matty White could be a nice F7 for the rest of the year – $198K on the bubble next week, just scored a lazy 99.

LetsGo

There goes the tiny 3% chance that we'd slip into the finals this year

TOPHAWK1

Beams has broken down. Arm injury. His day is done. 6 SC

Russty_

He got smashed by Mummy

hedski

At least Mummy has done something for me today, 39 at half time lift!!
Stef going hard.

Russty_

To be fair John, there was no malice in it, it was just an unstoppable force against an immovable object..the Mummy!

DeeSupreme

On behalf of all those who traded him out after his first injury and then were subjected to ridicule by the numptys who didn't trade him out after his first injury I we say "I TOLD YOU SO".

Russty_

I traded him out round 7 for Pendles so happy with that call, it was just a matter of time with Beams to go down again..unfortunately for his owners.

Daniel Z

I'm pretty sure half the guys in the league would have gone down if they got hit by Mummy in that situation.

Ben

Who owns beams?

finnigin

hey all , take peppers 82 or role the dice with an iffy hammy of scot selwood ?

byy

take the 82 I reckon.

Dutch

Agree play it safe and bank the 82

hedski

I won't mind too much if Scooter's a late out to bank that 82.

The BONT

Did Brad Ebert play bad or did he get an injury

Derek

He was on about 45 at half time and then he went missing. Que in rack

Jim_bob321

What do u guys think of Bont C?

SF4

If he was to ever bounce back into form than tonight would be the night.

Russty_

Risky Jim_bob, he seems to like scores in the 80's and low 90's lately.

Billioux

Just swtched C from Danger to The Bont Jim bob. I need to make ground in 2 cash Leagues. its a risk tho

Russty_

I'm thinking it was a pretty good idea at the moment guys LOL !

The BONT

Heath Shaw had got 3 disposals and 1 tackle and he is on 30 SC

Mike

D .BEAMS done grrrrr

INPieman

The gods are having fun with us this weekend

The BONT

Do i put the C on play Danger even if he is carrying an injury or go with Docerty

Russty_

Danger's hardly missed a game since 2009, I'm betting he'll play the full game and play well.

Russty_

Jake Barrett and Archie Smith are fighting it out to see who ends up with the lowest score..whoever scores under 10 wins lol

Billioux

Least Barrett found his way into the positive . Was poised to flick him however i thought surely he could get his 50 odd BE then bang bang to full premo ish next week. Good Thanks.

KrazeeEyezK1lla

New Zorko owners currently pulling their hair out

Jim_bob321

Yay to VC Zorko…….

Cogla13

Would have paid top dollar as well.

Mavs17

Zorko has flopped today!

Russty_

Bigtime!…and still flopping.

Mavs17

Im sure its just a one off. He will bounce back next week.

Russty_

Yeah mate, he will, at least you didn't get Beams in!

Mavs17

Yeah very happy i didnt jump on him at the start of the year. At least Martin and Greene played well for me today.

Jim_bob321

VC Zorko! Yay..
Let's hope Bont does good as C

Joshua

Would look at Scooter to Beams when he falls in price but how serious is the injury?

BrownlowBoy

Broken Collarbone.

Russty_

Won't know until Monday but knowing his shoulders, could be serious.

Joshua

Dw heard it was season ending

Jim_bob321

What is wrong with Zorko?

Russty_

He forgot to take his magnificence supplements this morning.

Derek

Ward was too good

Daniel

Assuming Docherty plays tomorrow, which 2 defenders should I have on field out of Rance, Simpson and Harbrow?

Russty_

Someone said earlier, he passed his fitness test so he will play…I'd leave Harbrow out, cause he's not really a premo imo.

joe

That's a lot of money on your bench there!

Derek

Berry got 76. I can take it or play Bolton, Parsons or Pickett……. oh dear what a choice.

Take Witherden's 76 or give Stewart a run?

Ja191

take both

Russty_

Agree

TOPHAWK1

Stefan Martin you are a hero! Adam Treloar you are a villain. Heath Shaw you are damned. Not bloody good enough mate. Milestone game or no milestone game.

Russty_

Shaw was insipid today, 9 disposals, no longer a premo.

Dan

Yep. Shaw is gone from my team this week.

hedski

90 odd from Shit cut Treloar is passable TH.
Go STEF..

TOPHAWK1

Treloar ended up with just 91 SC points from 35 disposals. If the prick could just get his efficiency up to premo standard, coaches would be looking at 131's or better.

hedski

Too true. Better than Rocky, Sloane, Buddy, Ebert etc so far.

Joshua

Shaw to who? Can go to a 460kish defender with one trade.

Defying_Madness

Hibberd has been pretty disappointing as of late. Also welcome to my team next week Bont

TOPHAWK1

Bontempelli is going BIG. The Bont is back with a bang.

Coaches who have him (me not) look like they will be handsomely rewarded for their patience tonite.

Mavs17

I traded him in for Fyfe this week and god im so happy i did!

manolaki

Wish I had VC him. Didn't trust his recent form. It was only a matter of time.

Ja191

put the cheeky C on him, hope he keeps going

DeeSupreme

Yep that should push his 5 game ave into the 90's

hedski

Only matters what he scores now if you just got him in Dee.

joe

Meh. He played against the worst midfield in the competition, notorious for giving up big score to opposing midfielders. I'm yet to be convinced,

Surferboi69

Average of 112 not enough to convince you?

Neverweaken

Yay finally. Brought him in at 600k and promptly gave me 90s

Joshua

Really want to go Shaw to newman next week. Would finally put me at rest for not owning him.

Russty_

Maybe also consider Joey Montagna or McGovern

ben

Do you really want to pay 430k for a rookie that most people payed 123k for?

Mavs17

So glad i traded in Bont for Fyfe! Welcome back The Bont!

Will

Docherty or Dusty C?

TOPHAWK1

I am going Dusty as captain. He will probably cop the Curnow tag at some point, but he will smash that like any other tag. His record against the Blues is not special, but tomorrow Dusty will right a few wrongs and hopefully make a big statement.

Will

I like you thinking TOPHAWK, think i'm gonna back Dusty!

hedski

Dangerous

Will

high risk high reward!

hedski

True, I'll stick with Danger.

Russty_

Doch is playing…not sure about Danger yet, but the gun has only missed 5 games or so in 8 years.

Will

Yeah I've got the VC on Danger

pod

Doch keeps on giving.

Finnius123

Gawn is so good. 20 HO in the first half – 11 to advantage. Straight swap for sandi after next round. Tempted to even cop the extra 30-40k and get him after this weekend.

INPieman

Very tempting. But not rucking against any opposition

Finnius123

He is only going to get better though – this is just his first match back after injury. Best ruckman in the comp, I will back him to carve up Kreuzer. Kreuzer is similar to Nank as well and picks up quite a few of his points through possessions/tackles not necessarily hit-outs to advantage.

INPieman

In form Kreuzer next week

Surferboi69

Considering going early and getting him next week

Ja191

Gawns back

TOPHAWK1

Big time. Beard or no beard. 77SC at the half after 10 odd weeks out. Licking my chops.

DeeSupreme

Max is 4 feet taller than any ruck he played against tonight. I hope he can keep it up when he plays against an actual ruck his stats were poor tonight considering the opposition that he had.
He didn't need to make any runs into backline chasing an athletic opponent tonight and he will probably spend half of next week up fwd or on bench, there's no sense in busting him against a team we wont meet in finals.

Northernsoul74

Embarrassing from Clayton Oliver. Pathetic.

INPieman

Was contact even made? Looked like a princess

TOPHAWK1

Looks like he is running out of juice mate. Always on the cards.

Mavs17

Oliver is actually going well in the second half. Hibberd is sh#t though

Russty_

I think he was getting tagged by Hutchings, ended up having a good game regardless. He's a gun.

DeeSupreme

You know that 'pitiful' and 'embarrassing' don't mean 'good' don't you?

Finnius123

Hibberd is having a seriously poor outing

Mavs17

Another flop just like zorko

Defying_Madness

Looks like Hibberd was just an illusion just as Higgo said. I sadly got drawn into that illusion.

Russty_

Bloody Goldstein's also done nothing since he hit 60

hedski

Did he get reported??

Russty_

I didn't see anything Hedski..have been flicking between games.

hedski

Same, heard something on the radio wasn't sure.

manolaki

He is on 73 so not doing that badly. Still 5 mins to go he might creep up to 80+

Defying_Madness

Ended on 90+ huge last quarter

Finnius123

Ended up with a decent score. Maybe I jumped the gun a bit – but he was floundering down the bottom for a bit too long for my liking.

Defying_Madness

Yeah got around 50 points that quarter

manolaki

happens. players can be 45 and end up 90 in the last quarter.
still don't know how these stats work sometimes

Ben

Bloody hibbered

Russty_

Could still redeem himself…on 67 now.

manolaki

He has turned it around

Russty_

Go Peddo!…having a great last quarter!

JJF

Shaw to Newman or McGovern?

JJF

Or T McDonald?

Ja191

two great games tonight, amazing to watch!

Russty_

T-MAC wow what a game!!

Finnius123

How good is footy? I swear almost every game this season has been absolutely incredible.

Russty_

Hell yeah!…these 2 night games made up for the 2 boring day games today for sure.

Finnius123

Thursday and Friday night were also great games of Footy. There can be no arguments against the current system of leveling it out. It makes for great, unpredictable footy games.

LetsGo

This year has probably been the most competitive and uncertain in recent memory, anybody can win in any game and it makes for very entertaining viewing

B T

First of all what a weekend of footy, there has been two 1 pointers and a cracker from the Dees.

Also the doggies boys were back with a bang, Macrae, Bont and Dahl all having good nights after some poor performances over the last few weeks. Actually looking at a good score this week as i've managed to avoid the carnage.

DeeSupreme

C'mon genius why don't you explain to us all how the umpires decide who wins the game the day before its played and then award the required free kicks to ensure that outcome. idiot 🙂

Mavs17

Haha mate dont need to. If you dont know it already or cant figure it out by looking at what everyone says on fb then you obviously have never played football in your life…. and not once did i say that they decide it before the game you stupid idiot! Back in your hole where you belong mate.

Winter

Who wins?
Opponent: Murphy, Riewoldt, 35 points
Me: Jelwood, Simpson

Bloody Mountford and Barrett cost me

pod

Not looking good but you have a chance. If you expected more from Mountford then you are dreaming.

JJF

Newman, McGovern, Tom McDonald or hold Shaw after his 60?

B T

Shaw probably has to go, if he was to have a big one this year it would have been today.

Derek

I'll get rid of Shaw as well.

He has been a victim of GWS success

Swans2012

Aim Make him your d7, I have and it feels good. Too late in the year to sideways unless you e got butloads of trades

GloryDays90

What a night!
Bont: 139
MacRae: 122
Dalhaus: 103
Oliver:113
Hibberd:91
Yeo: 94

Woohoo!

Russty_

Happy days mate…I've got all those blokes too, bout time the doggies boys pulled their fingers out 🙂

GloryDays90

What are you projected for this week? Im up against the top guy in one of my leagues and he is 11-0 so far. Hoping to knock him off

Russty_

2427 but I have S.Selwood and Danger with no cover so I'm hoping they both play 🙂 Good luck mate, I hope you knock that tall poppy down!

GloryDays90

Yeah i have them to. With Doch, Martin, Nank, Roberton, Tuohy also to play
Hoping to get around 2400 tp 2450

Russty_

You should do well, just gotta hope Nank doesn't get replaced by Maric at the last minute…unless you have cover.

GloryDays90

Nah no cover yet. Will be getting another ruck in a few weeks if all goes well. But greenwood may be a keeper yet haha

Eagle

Umpires win the games
Bookies must be winning big time
By law they should have to declare their positions

Eagle

Eagles game was umpired reasonably well
The Swans have been persecuted tbis year
I can only think it was because of the umps being called out after the rigged 2016 grand final

Russty_

You must be a big X-Files fan?…Conspiracy theories abound all around us?

BomberNoremac

Looking some big scores this round? What's everyone projected at? I think mines 2580 but hard to calculate as have strands a as c to get Merrett score and not sure if greenwoods score has already been added in

GloryDays90

Around 2450 to 2500

Russty_

Hey Mavs…did you just mean to delete your comment or your whole profile?…now your name is deleted2704926, sounds like a Robot's name lol, wtf?

Bells

Anyone else locked out of supercoach? Can't check my score.

Russty_

Nah mine's ok, check your internet connection maybe?

neil Demons Delight

Gawn a must have after that effort and the dees looking good too. Weideman and JKH both played blinders at casey

Russty_

Hey Neil, I'd say he's a must have after he overcomes his massive breakeven..in a couple of weeks, bloody great game from Big Maxy tonight though, and a great win for the D's…genuine threat this year!

Derek

Have a look at who he is up against after next week.

Kruzer, Jacobs, Ryder, Goldy & Mummy.

Welcome back Max!

Tommo09

Field Stewart or Ryan?

TOPHAWK1

Stewart for mine. Playing on his home deck whilst Ryan is only playing his third game away in a hostile environment.

INPieman

Tough call. Safety is Stewart. But Ryan has the better SC game long term

Jarryd

Who to put the C on ? Danger, Jelwood, or Doc

pod

Jelwood loves the Cattery but so does Danger. I'd go Jelwood out of the two, he's due.

TOPHAWK1

Danger and the Doc will probably play, but the Doc had to pass a fitness test yesterday and Danger apparently is struggling with some hamstring tightness. The least risky one without an injury ? mark is Jelwood. I would go with him.

INPieman

You need some luck in this caper bench. If you were lucky enough to dodge the carnage then you should go very large. It happens every year

TOPHAWK1

Top of the morning all! Its Sunday………………….Let the supercoach gods be nice to us for a change. Wouldn't that be nice?

Anyway, I am battling a very tough opponent in Trigg's Happy Place league this week and need to make up some ground. I am currently trailing by 274 points, however I still have 3 unique players to play vs his 1 unigue player. My unique players are Rance, Stewart, and Dustin Martin whilst his unique player is Jelwood. We both underachieved in our VC choices. I had Heeney at 104, and my opponent had Rocky at 83. As such, today we both have to give our captains a run.

I am thinking as I have ground to make up, the only feasible way to do it is my captaining one of my unique players. Enter Dustin Martin. Is he the man for C? He probably will cop the Curnow tag at some point and history suggests Dusty does not play his A game against the blues. Then there is Alex Rance. He had a massive second half last week and is running into form. I just think Dusty's game has gone to another level this year and he is most capable of producing a big one today. My opponent has the C on Jelwood today.

If my strategy is flawed, or I have missed something let me know. Cheers

BlueNath

You are up against it TH1. Dusty is ur only option for C. I think his projected score (118) is pretty accurate, but he is the only one of your remaining 3 that can hit 140+. Good luck mate

TOPHAWK1

I just noticed something else. We both have Nankervis, but he has used the Nank to loophole Stefan Martin's score. (Strnadica) I started Stefan Martin on the field. After having checked his bench, it appears he can not use the Nank to score points. That means another unique player as I have Nank on the field in my forward line. I have whacked the E on Bolton should the Nank be a late out. It seems I actually have 4 unique players to his 1. That should tighten things up a bit further.

hedski

Have Stefs points been added on to his score yet Toppa?
Wouldn't have if he's looping with Strnadica cos freo haven't played yet.

TOPHAWK1

Damnit. Good point. Didn't think of that now did I?

Means I am chasing down 402 points with 4 unique players (one being captain-Dusty) vs his 1 unique player being his captain-Jelwood. Dusty will have to go BIG and Jelwood stay down to have any hope. Think I might be cooked. Where there is life there is hope I suppose.

hedski

So Stef on the bench with a E and Nank in Ruck?
If Nank plays he'll miss Stefs points?

TOPHAWK1

No, Stef on the ruc bench with the E and Stradnica ruc on the field. Nank on his forward bench without the E on him.

gator59

Looking at your side against Moustachio.. Toppa you may be pushing shite up hill with a flat tyre on the wheel barrow..

TOPHAWK1

Hahahaha. I reckon you might be onto something.

hedski

OK I'm with ya now, just checked both teams (both in my "first to go woo" league).
Yeah your up against it.

Winter

My opponent is 26 points up with Murphy and Riewoldt to play. I've got Selwood and Simpson. We both have Danger captain.

Is it worth changing my caption to Selwood or Doch as a point of difference?

Ja191

ye mate, i personally went bont C as danger isnt playing at full fitness (could be moved forward a lot eg). Plonk the C on jelwood

Notorious mac

Are these rumours of danger under an injury cloud even true. If he was geelomg wouldnt play him at home against freo

BlueNath

Yes, he is. But it's danger! Plus he is genuine about wanting to play in front of his home crowd… understands the importance. From a club perspective, it's the perfect week to rest him though. But considering what he has played through in the past, I'm saying he is 95% chance of playing

Deeboss

you're bloody scaring me mate…. he has to play.

Chief

What will Beams price be next week?

BlueNath

He will drop to about $519k
