Round 15 Supercoach Panic Room

Published by Patch on


I think I’ve finally calmed down after last Friday. Maybe.

Actually let’s all take a second to shove our collective head out the window and let out one final scream.

Good. Let the hate flow through you. It makes you strong.

Now, cool, calm and collected as a cucumber, onto business.


Everything is only mildly less awful than it was last week, but not by much.

Nat Fyfe and Aaron Sandilands have been ‘named’ by Freo this week, with Fyfe being proposed as playing forward. That would concern me if I still had him. Also:

Joel Selwood has been named, but I’m hoping for his long term health as a human being he doesn’t play. My Supercoach team on the other hand is no man, but a sadistic point eating machine! (Pls send help, it’s starving)

Joel’s brother Scott Selwood will miss with injury, however, as will Dayne Beams after he was poleaxed by an oak barrel with legs last weekend.

Supercoach star Gary Ablett and star-to-be Josh Kelly both return for their sides, with Gary locked in to tear North apart.

Zak Jones and Jarryd McVeigh return for the Swans, which will have an interesting impact on Jake Lloyd’s role in the side.

Episode V, Revenge of the Cast-Aside Rookies is upon us, with Mitch Hibberd, Cedric Cox and the infamous 2016 mystery man Ryan Davis from Gold Coast all returning. Adding to the flavour of the round is pre-season hype wunderkid Zach Guthrie’s looming debut.

But you win some and you lose some. In this case we lose Andy Otten, Sam Petrovski-Seton, Tom Stewart, Tim Taranto and Jarrod Pickett all making way.

Also Matt Priddis continues to upset me by missing this week. Knew I should have backed my gut and gone Sloane. DAMMIT MATTHEW.


I’m not very good at this, but am of the opinion you absolutely must start Titch and Pendles this week. Titch is the new Draftstars pig while Pendles will go large in game 250.  

Pending Sunday selections, I’ve build my side around these two blokes. The selection of Big Boy is purely for the extra cash – Grundy will give him a bath. Mind you, the inclusion of Mason Cox is enough to make you pause.

Broomhead is a lock if he plays.


Stark change to last week where everyone was avoiding the big names and splashing the cash – at least for mine. How are you seeing it, community? Make sure you head on over to run your eye over Higgo’s genius here – or bang on into this week’s free community contest below.





Everything’s coming up Milhouse:

-83 – Alex Witherden

-46 – Matt White

-43 – Ryan Shoenmakers

-37 – Jono Beech

-31 – Sean Darcy

-26 – Callum Brown

-21 – Brennan Cox

-21 – Hugh ‘the real MVP’ Greenwood

-13 – Declan Mountford

3 – Matt Scharenberg

5 – Robbie Gray

10 – Jon Patton

Dig up, stupid!

240 – Joel ‘Cat’s Head’ Selwood

220 – Dayne Beams

184 – Max Gawn

176 – Zac Williams

173 – Rory Sloane

172 – Tom Rockliff

158 – Tom J Lynch

155 – Dayne Zorko



As I’m pressed for time this week, community, I want to throw this week’s superhero to the floor: pick one bloke you reckon will tear it apart this weekend who isn’t Paddy Dangerfield (VC) or Scott Pendlebury (C) – Pendles as it’s his 250th and Dangerfield… well, because he’s Dangerfield.

Mine is (surprise, surprise) Zach Merrett. While he only hit 112 against the Lions earlier in the year, this game last season (at Etihad) he tore the roof off the joint. The Lions are missing most key players in their midfield, and Rockliff still seems to be carrying something. Merrett’s gone at an average of 131 over his past 3 and I reckon he’ll top that this week.

Who are you looking at, community? Over and out, Patch

Go Blues!

    Tyruddanaut · 30/06/2017 at 10:28

    Never read anything better in my life

Hoot · 30/06/2017 at 09:39

VC to Sloane may be the difference… considering

    TheGreatBozza · 30/06/2017 at 12:58

    I really like it. Guys with ridiculous ceilings (refer to G.Ablett, T.Rockliff) make the best VC options I say.

Bock Choy · 30/06/2017 at 09:44

Oh, the luxury of being able to view the team changes and then ponder the next move. No frantic changes in the hour between team announcements and the first bounce!

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 11:12

    Amen to that…Thursday games suck!

      LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 13:49

      actually like Thursday games – just from a viewers point of view I love it. hate it from a supercoach view

    Hoot · 30/06/2017 at 12:36

    Imagine how difficult it will be to play SC when games become a daily event like the NBA.

Tommy · 30/06/2017 at 09:47

Should i field greenwood over t lynch this week? cheers

    Sam · 30/06/2017 at 09:54

    I'm having the same issue…out of Lynch, Greenwood and Parsons who goes to the pine and who gets the E…

    I think Tarrant will be all over Lynch this week. Parsons has the harder match of the three so it's feeling like a coin toss between the others

    MickyB · 30/06/2017 at 09:55


    Relton · 30/06/2017 at 10:24

    i have greenwood at M6 and love it. my dilemma is do i bench lynch for parsons? norths tarrant will lockdown on lynch and possibly another stinker 🙁

    Mick · 30/06/2017 at 10:49

    Tough! Surely Lynch comes good tho. I'm trying to decide which one to trade to Gawny and which to keep as my F6 with Nank as F7/R3. If Lynch goes gotta be this week, if Greenwood I'll wait a week.

    Bock Choy · 30/06/2017 at 11:18

    Last week I was looking at the opportunity to loophole Hardwick with Lynch (couldn't do it due to the brief cameo from Pickett).

    This week I am looking to loophole Lynch with Hardwick given he's a better chance to post a usable score.

    Seeker · 30/06/2017 at 12:43

    I gotta field Greenwood for JJK (still). Thinking of downgrading Lynch to Matt White (PTA) and leave Parsons as my bench cover. Next week bang-bang full Premo and maybe a luxury trade to Gawn when he drops more $$

    Beezneez · 30/06/2017 at 15:17

    I'm torn between two options for Greenwood. Put the E on him in the fwd line and, if he scores well, I'll replace Lynch with Eddy. However, also thinking of using him in the same way in the mids for Witherden.

James · 30/06/2017 at 09:47

Thinking I need to bin Priddis, can anyone give me a reason not too?

    MickyB · 30/06/2017 at 09:55

    Id trade

    Relton · 30/06/2017 at 10:22

    if you have the cash i'd trade up to a bont or merrett. if your strugglin for $$ and have solid benchcover maybe hold a week or two for jelwood and rocky to bottom out around ya 450k straight swap nearly.

Diesel · 30/06/2017 at 09:52

VC Gaz, C danger

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 10:11

    Let's hope Danger doesn't get Baby Brain like Pendles did

MickyB · 30/06/2017 at 09:54

Reasonable to get zerret for beams this week and jelwood or dusty for sloane if he keeps this shit up?

Tommo · 30/06/2017 at 10:13

VC Doch, Danger C


Danger VC, Pendles/Treloar C

    MickyB · 30/06/2017 at 10:44

    danger vc

    JohndJames · 30/06/2017 at 16:11

    My thoughts as well,but also looking at Bont as a VC.

SCathiest · 30/06/2017 at 10:17

I'm going Doch into Danger. But as per Patches rule of "who isn’t Paddy Dangerfield (VC) or Scott Pendlebury (C)" I'll go
Doch (VC) into Zerret (C)

Relton · 30/06/2017 at 10:18

need to downgrade S.Selwood this weeek to 1 of C.brown or WItherden… after JS!
then next week beams to either rocky or jelwood when they bottom out..

Rick Grimes · 30/06/2017 at 10:21

Anyone else deeply concerned about Fyfe and this potential upfield business? Is it better to just cut our losses than risk a massive turd of a score?

    Relton · 30/06/2017 at 10:27

    i'm holding rick. i feel a few weeks to freshen up will have helped and sandi tappin down his throat again will be happy days. but am extremely nervous! also i just dont have the trades to be making moves like this

    Tyruddanaut · 30/06/2017 at 10:29

    If you've held him this far hold him

    Cogla13 · 30/06/2017 at 10:36

    Traded Fyfe during the byes. I've slept a lot better the last couple of weeks.

      Horse · 30/06/2017 at 10:53

      Now you will have nightmares because Fyfe will come good with his mate Sandi. Look at their stats when they play together.

        Cogla13 · 30/06/2017 at 12:22

        Possibly, but playing forward he'll have to kick a bag of goals every week. Can't see that happening.

        Cogla13 · 02/07/2017 at 19:26

        I see Fyfe's mate Sandi is down and Fyfe continued to underperform, no nightmares tonight.

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 17:15

    Blakely got dropped for chucking a sickie from training to go surfing, opens up the mid spot for Nathan

    No one · 30/06/2017 at 19:00

    This is my favorite post. I love reading people's thoughts on what they think Ross Lyon may do…….

Tyruddanaut · 30/06/2017 at 10:26

Rodney Eade has been reported saying that Tom Lynch (GC) has been fighting mental demons

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 10:36

    So have I since I brought him in

      Beezneez · 30/06/2017 at 15:19


Tyruddanaut · 30/06/2017 at 10:30

Does anyone know the length of Scooters injury

    FizzEm · 30/06/2017 at 10:32

    1 weeek at this stage.

      Horse · 30/06/2017 at 10:53

      Another hammie strain = 2 – 3 weeks.

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 17:16

    About 3cm it's only a small tear

    Steve · 30/06/2017 at 17:50

    5 years.

      Tyruddanaut · 01/07/2017 at 12:25

      I bloody hope you're joking

Starry · 30/06/2017 at 10:33

Hey guys. What's the minimum amount of trades you should have now? I need 1 more trade to be full premo but don't want to burn myself later on. Need to win almost every game in my money league to make finals…

    SC_Kev7 · 30/06/2017 at 13:00

    In a money league just go for broke, Starry. Having trades in the bank won't do much good if you miss out on finals

    Tyruddanaut · 01/07/2017 at 12:26

    You'll only win a money league if you take risks, this should be one

INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 10:38

Let's pray the gods are kinder to us this Friday Patch. Last week was brutality

    Da_Boysh · 30/06/2017 at 11:06

    Is Greene out!?

      INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 11:07

      Zac Williams. It begins

      SCathiest · 30/06/2017 at 11:15

      Hope not. Why? Haven't heard that one yet!!

        INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 11:30

        Done a hammy. Replaced by Finlayson who's debuting

          Craig · 30/06/2017 at 12:54

          Well I don't think I'll trade Shaw now. He should be back to his old position that Williams has been playing.

Da_Boysh · 30/06/2017 at 10:46

Hi All,

7 trades left 180k in the bank 2 trades from premo (considering holding Greenwood at F6 hes better than the other spuds out there which means 1 trade from premo)

Question is, does Marc Murphy need to go. I am toying with upgrading him to Merret..

I dont want to blow trades but I just feel like hes done for the season.

    Derek · 30/06/2017 at 13:50

    At this stage you keep. If you have trades left you can jump on someone who is steaming home

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 17:19

    Scrap Murphy immediately! a 5 round ave of almost 80 isn't good enough from a mid Merrett will give you an extra 40+ points each week

#Pieinghigh · 30/06/2017 at 11:12

My only trade this week..

Myers > Witherden.

I am holding Scooter until a mid drops below $473k that I want.. 3k short of Robbie gray :(.

    Derek · 30/06/2017 at 13:54

    Get a $102k rooki instead of Witherden

    Spanner · 30/06/2017 at 13:56

    Wait til after Joel Selwood drops in the next few weeks

Thomas · 30/06/2017 at 11:16

Now that it is being reported that Tobias Greene has done his hammy who is the next best fwd option out of Heeney and Buddy?

    Thomas · 30/06/2017 at 11:22

    Or is the Zac Williams injury?

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 11:25

    Zac Williams strained his hammy and won't play, haven't heard anything about Greene.

    Where'd you get your info from?

      INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 11:38

      Williams officially withdrawn & replaced. Toby Greene still just a rumour

        Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 11:44

        Cheers Pie…bloody hate rumours!

        Liam · 30/06/2017 at 12:39

        How long is Williams out for ?

        Noirlust · 01/07/2017 at 01:13

        For me, that means i hold Heater another week and slap him with a C.
        Playing Geelong, he should see that footy quite a bit.

        I hope..

      Thomas · 30/06/2017 at 11:44

      Fantasy Freako on twitter, could be based on rumour though.

        Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 11:50

        Cheers, I saw this on AFL late mail too…….

        Some big news out of GWS, as Adam Curley reports

        GREATER Western Sydney defender Zac Williams has been ruled out of Saturday's crucial clash with Geelong with a hamstring injury and there are suggestions star forward Toby Greene may have hurt his hamstring at training on Friday morning.

          Thomas · 30/06/2017 at 12:09

          GWS just released this statement:

          Toby Greene completed training this morning and was assessed by medical staff for ankle soreness. He is expected to play in #AFLGIANTSCats.

          Revised question: assuming Tobias plays who is the best fwd option out of him, Gerber and Bud?

            hedski · 30/06/2017 at 13:49

            Probably Gerber Thomas he's a gun… that Heeney?

Don't Blush Baby · 30/06/2017 at 12:00

Nank or Parsons on field ? Can't loop Eddy ,was looking at Nank to Greene until the rumours started.

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 12:11

    seriously? nank every day

    neil Demons Delight · 30/06/2017 at 14:04

    Nank for sure

    Dutch · 30/06/2017 at 15:42

    If Parsons outscores Nank it will likely only be by 10-20, but Nank could easily outscore Parsons by 40+.
    Bank every day

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 15:53

    Greene will play DBB, his so called 'Hammy" injury was just a bit of ankle soreness.

Big M · 30/06/2017 at 12:07

Oh crikey – don't know what to do
bring in Dusty or Heeney
Heeney is $100k cheaper
but Dusty is average is 14 higher (or rolling 3 match is 17 higher)

    Big M · 30/06/2017 at 12:15

    Or even Neale – oh the dilemma

Benjamin B · 30/06/2017 at 12:07

Toby Greene completed training this morning and was assessed by medical staff for ankle soreness. He is expected to play in #AFLGIANTSCats.

Captain Risky · 30/06/2017 at 12:10

Missed all the carnage last week. Have Williams out this week. I guess nobody escapes everything.. hopefully that's my only out. Greene on my never never list so safe there.

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 12:43

    No flog policy capatain?

      Captain Risky · 30/06/2017 at 13:14

      Absolutely 🙂 He may be a good player but….

kanetrain10 · 30/06/2017 at 12:39

Need a hand here. Got Beams and Z Williams in my side. Need the H2H win this week. Got 10K and 9 trades.

Should I:

1. Trade both Z Will and Beams for similar players

2. Leave Z Will, Trade Beams for premo mid and do Barrett > M White, play Berry for Z Will

3. Leave Beams for this week, play SPP on field, Trade Z Will for premo def and Barrett to Matt White

4. any suggestions let me know!

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 15:24

    I wouldnt go matt white. the two good bubble options are schoenmakers (155k) or witherdon (117k). will give you more cash than white as well

Morty · 30/06/2017 at 12:43

What to do with Taranto?

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 12:52

    Out for the season. Trade

    SC_Kev7 · 30/06/2017 at 12:54


    Ranked1 · 30/06/2017 at 13:08

    Absolutely trade

    neil Demons Delight · 30/06/2017 at 14:06

    must trade Morty

POTS · 30/06/2017 at 12:43

13 trades and $1500 cash
Thinking of Stewart/Barrett out for Macrae/Witherden

Still have Nank (FWD), Scooter and Steele. Looking at Gawn for Nank next week.
Assuming Steele returns, do I trade Barrett (BE 118) or Steele (BE 128) first?

    SC_Kev7 · 30/06/2017 at 12:56

    Barrett goes first for mine. Steele was tough to be dropped. Gone back to VFL level and (unsurprisingly) carved it up

    TheGreatBozza · 30/06/2017 at 12:59

    Agree with Kev, gotta get rid of Barrett. If Steele does play he's got a much higher ceiling

Lazza · 30/06/2017 at 12:44

Right now it doesn't matter what we want to do .. SC won't stay up long enough to make changes or reverse changes .. anyone else experiencing this?

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 12:53

    If your on the app you need to delete it & reinstall it. Solves the problem

TheGreatBozza · 30/06/2017 at 12:49

I'd love the thoughts from the community about what's the best move. Currently have 13 trades and $80k bank:

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

I'm playing for leagues with an easy game against 2nd bottom this week, so I'll hold Scooter as well as the Fantastic Four known as Shaw, Fyfe, Nank and Lynch.

Option 1 – single swap
Beams > Neale, Crips or Mitchell

Option 2:
Beams > Zerret or Dusty
Hannan > Brown

Option 3:
Beams > Yeo

Option 4:
Beams > Witherden or JDC
Hannan > Yeo

I'm leaning towards option 1 as I think Neale is great value, whereas Yeo may come down a bit more in price. Option 4 is probably my second choice as it gears me up to get Gawn for Sandi next week and look at bringing in the likes of Rocky & Joel for Scooter and SPP in the coming weeks.

    Moonalink · 30/06/2017 at 12:59

    Say if Sandi fires up again. Go Zerrett.

    FCAbel · 30/06/2017 at 16:18

    Option 1

Janelle · 30/06/2017 at 12:58

What sort of training are GWS doing? Last week it was Kelly and this week Greene? Got both of them. Not happy Jan!

    NutSack · 30/06/2017 at 17:56

    Who's Jan Janelle? Or are you talking to yourself? It would be like me saying 'Not happy NutSack'

Borko · 30/06/2017 at 13:02

I think White is most likely of this week's rookies to make $100-150K from his starting price. That's why I am leaning towards him over the Beech/Brown types. He will be my final trade up in about R19 for my seventh fwd so I can start lopping Nank as my F7.

I guess its a different story if you are looking to bring in someone you don't plan to trade out again … even still, the others don't fill me with much confidence and/or lack dual position flexibility

    neil Demons Delight · 30/06/2017 at 14:11

    White appears to have at least some J S Got loads of pace but remember Houston could be a trap

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 17:28

    White does this every year, plays a couple scores well then disappears. They call him 'Selleys' at Alberton because he is only used for filling gaps

Richie Porte · 30/06/2017 at 13:18

Who for Beams, Merritt, Neale or Kennedy

    Keenbutclueless · 30/06/2017 at 14:04

    Good luck tonight in TDF.

      Richie Porte · 30/06/2017 at 15:37

      Mate SuperCoach is far more important then the TDF. I need a win in my league.

TraderDanger · 30/06/2017 at 14:11

Team Done. Scooter on the pine til his bro is a swap over. 5 trades left. Greenwood the swingman for loopholing. Strnadica for the capt role he does so well. Real risk is Shazza and Ryan on def bench. Just thought I'd put the mozzon early.

alex · 30/06/2017 at 14:12

Bont, Cripps or Gray for Beams

Rivo · 30/06/2017 at 14:32

With Scooter on the pine, I have to bring Mountford on field with Greenwood sitting at F6. Pickett (M10) not selected and Bolton (F7) doubtful as an Emergency.

Trying not to trade with 7 left and $112k. The prize of Jelwood and Gawn is worth another week or 2 waiting.

Please SC Gods, no late outs this week!!!

Paul · 30/06/2017 at 14:42

Thoughts on going early on Stewart to Witherden and Shaw to Z Merrett (leaving Newman as D6)? Team is:

Doch, Adams, Laird, Rance, Shaw, Newman (Stewart, Ryan)
Danger, Pendles, Rockliff, Bontempelli, Hannebery, Fyfe, J Lloyd, Greenwood (Bolton, Hibberd, Cousins)
Martin, Sandi (Strnadica)
Yeo, Dahlhaus, Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Nank (Parsons, Eddy)

    Dave · 30/06/2017 at 15:28

    Shaw nsmed on wing. Should get lots of pill

      Paul · 30/06/2017 at 15:36

      Have thought he'd get lots of the pill all year! Would ideally need to go with Merrett this week given his low BE so it could be now or never…

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 15:34

    Sounds real nice 🙂

    FCAbel · 30/06/2017 at 16:21

    Might be worth holding Shaw to see is Zach Williams out changes anything.

Pom · 30/06/2017 at 14:52

Love the Panic Room Patch.
Can go to full "Keeper" (barring Nank) this week if I ship out Scooter Selwood and Hannan for Robbie Gray and Jack Billings.
Leaves me with 6 trades and 90k left in the bank; then next week a downgrade of parsons/berry to anyone cheap + Nank to Gawn.
Other thought is to have Berry on field this week in mids for scooter, trade out Hannan for Billings/Greene,get Gawn next week and Jelwood in 2 weeks after price crash.
Thoughts on either plan?

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 15:35

    I like jelwood better than Robbie but up to you.

    also witherdon is a great rookie to get next week 🙂

    Dutch · 30/06/2017 at 15:38

    Unless high up in the ranks option 2 is better – and I like Billings as a pod

ProTravo · 30/06/2017 at 15:13

Which two would you pick for your side: Neale, Ablett, Pendles, T.Mitchell?

    Pom · 30/06/2017 at 15:19

    T Mitchell and Neale.

    Rivo · 30/06/2017 at 15:20

    Pendles, Neale

    ProTravo · 30/06/2017 at 15:29

    No love for Ablett? Was thinking of bringing him in… Must go huge in game 300 at home against North?

      Haze · 30/06/2017 at 15:54

      I have Tmitch. Trying to work out who to swap for Beams….Dusty, JPK, Ablett or Pendels. Each day this week I have changed my mind! As tonights game gets closer, I am thinking Kennedy now but cant be sure!

        ProTravo · 30/06/2017 at 15:58

        Yeah, I'm in the same boat! Hard picking the best premo's.

          Haze · 30/06/2017 at 16:14

          All done – went Kennedy. Logic – Ablett injury prone. Just dont like the Pies. My plan is to do a few more downgrades in coming weeks (Stewart, SPP, Greenwood) free up some cash so I can get Dusty in as well. Plus with his BE at 145, I think he will come back a bit in price. Still have 12 trades so should be able to get there.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 15:51

    Pendles and Mitchell for me.

    Wattsieesq · 30/06/2017 at 16:42

    Titch and Neale

Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 15:44

Selwood got on the plane to Sydney, so let's hope the bugger gets cleared to do his thing.

    hedski · 30/06/2017 at 16:51

    Joel would get thru the concussion test while he's still spasming on the ground asleep Russty, surely he's done it a hundred times now.

Tommo09 · 30/06/2017 at 15:59

Trading Stewart and Hannan to Witherden and Brown/Beech


    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 16:29

    Don't like going pre-bubble and I don't think either of Brown or Beech's JS is too crash hot

      Tommo09 · 30/06/2017 at 16:45

      Neither will be consistently onfield so they are purely for cash

        Wal · 30/06/2017 at 17:13

        Fair enough but they won't be making any cash if they're not playing

    Tommo09 · 30/06/2017 at 18:02

    Will take Beech

Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 16:04

As some no im based in WA, word im getting out of Melb is Selwood will play. Hope so cos im a little jittery about fielding Hibberd from nth.

    neil demons delight · 30/06/2017 at 18:11

    don't blame you there Stirls but suspect he will go ok .Been burning at vfl level

Jordan · 30/06/2017 at 16:15

Between Neale, merret, Rockliff and Joel Selwood I have to pick two to finish of my team the o my combination I can't do is Neale and merret

    Dave · 30/06/2017 at 16:54

    Cant go wrong with either. I've got all but Selwood.

    Given selwood's soon to be price, think he will be perfect for your team, and a pod in comparison to thise who are already full premo. Lock him in.

    Do you rate Rockliff highly and think he will return to form. I sure do, but dont know when. If you personally think that will be soon then rocky needs to be picked.

    Merrett if you want consistency.

    Neale if you want an underrated pod, with a few question marks over hiw he will perform from here on.

    So my suggestion is Selwood and Rocky if you are going for the prize.

    Selwood and Merrett if you want a bit more consistency and assurance.

    Selwood and Neale if you want a somewhat POD to catch up in ranks.

    But god all three are good players, and the difference will likely be sweet F all.


Iconic · 30/06/2017 at 16:20

Firstly, who do I trade for C. Brown OR M.White? T. Nankervis OR J. Parsons…
TRADE NANK >> Brown ($317,200)
TRADE NANK >> White ($236,700)
TRADE PARSONS >> Brown ($135,600)
TRADE PARSONS >> White ($54,500)

    Jordan · 30/06/2017 at 16:24

    parsons to matt white if matt whit has to be fielded

    Parsons to Callum brown if Callum brown is on ur bench

    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 16:40

    Have you considered not trading?

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 16:45

    why trade parsons hes just had his best score by far? gonna go up nicely for the next two weeks

      Iconic · 30/06/2017 at 16:54

      Need cash to upgrade Greenwood in a few weeks

    hedski · 30/06/2017 at 17:07

    Brown dropped

Stupid Coach · 30/06/2017 at 16:25

Great work again Patch. Hopefully this week will be better for you and us all.

Which of the following options would suggest out of:
1) S Selwood to Witherden and SPP to Zerrett (9 trades and 108k)
2) Hannan to White and S Selwood to Bont or Macrae (9 trades and 62k with Bont)
3) S Selwood to White and SPP to Bont, Macrae, J Selwood and Merrett (9 trades and 26k with Merrett)

Not sure who out of White or Witherden has better job security. Both are DPP's which is a bonus.


    Nick · 30/06/2017 at 16:33

    option 1

    Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 16:53

    Witherden has the better JS imo, id like another look at him but not much around.

      Stupid Coach · 30/06/2017 at 17:19

      Thanks Nick and Stirlsy. Agree that Fagan is more likely to persist with him than Hinkley will with White. Should I trade Hannan (via DPP with Bolton) or go with Option 1 as suggested.

James · 30/06/2017 at 16:31

Who to VC and C out of these guys:
Docherty, Danger Merrett, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Bont and Merrett
Was thinking of VC on JPK and C on Danger, or VC Danger and C Merrett?? Please help!!

    Nick · 30/06/2017 at 16:33

    Danger into Merrett

HarryO · 30/06/2017 at 16:32

Lets all pray that zac williams out can rekindle the heath shaw of 2016!!

INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 16:38

S Hill Blakely & Deluca removed from the Freo squad. Ross up to his tricks again

    LoganJosh7 · 30/06/2017 at 16:48

    you follow dr supercoach? 😉

    or are you dr supercoach!

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 30/06/2017 at 16:48

    Deluca was my mid cover. now I really need Jelwood to play. I don't want to have to move Greenwood to my E in mid, then lose his score if Jelwood does play. will get a donut if he misses though…

      INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 16:56

      Tough conundrum there Krazee

        KrazeeEyezK1lla · 30/06/2017 at 17:06

        I posted this below. this could be my option.

        Can we see Cousins from Hawks getting another game anytime soon? Hawks feel like they're a chance for finals so I dunno If I can see them blooding any young players. considering dropping him for Witherden, which is a fairly minor gain.

        would leave me with 134k, 6 trades with only Greenwood to turn into premo. Nank will also become Gawn next week for cheap. also gives me midfield cover this weekend should Jelwood be a late out

      Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 16:58

      Sort of in same boat, but hibberd can replace if late out, if they call it early that his an out i can move Adams up to guts and play Ryan but if its a game time call im left with Hibbered.

    hedski · 30/06/2017 at 16:53

    Ah my loop slave Deluca is back.

Dave · 30/06/2017 at 16:44

Does anyone honestly see a point in trading nankervis, considering he is averaging 93 this year.

Unless you for some reason haven't got the big gun fwds like Yeo, Macrae, Heeney, or Dalhouse, who the hell else would you bring in? NickRoo/Dixon/Buddy who are all averaging less?

Only valid reason would be to get Gawn. But I'll be stuffed if its worth sideways trading to another fwd who will likely go worth, or at the best get 5 more points a match. Boo rant over

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 30/06/2017 at 16:47

    Buddy has been quiet. expect him to go BANG a few times soon

      hedski · 30/06/2017 at 16:55

      Hopefully tonight Kraze.

        Tyruddanaut · 01/07/2017 at 12:29

        Your hopes have been answered

    Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 17:04

    Its not the avg for the year that is the worry Dave its his avg over past 6 games that is saying trade his past 6 games is avg 80.6 and his last 3 is 72.3 you do the maths Dave.

James T · 30/06/2017 at 16:58

Stewart to Witherden. Yes or No.

    hedski · 30/06/2017 at 17:01


    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 17:20

    Random · 30/06/2017 at 17:08

    Poppy out cousins on extended bench

    Pman · 30/06/2017 at 19:35

    Cousins named as 3rd Emergency on Sunday which suggests he probably isn't too far away from getting another crack. I've got him on my bench and are holding for now as he will make more coin once selected.

Sully321 · 30/06/2017 at 17:05

thoughts on nank to matt white and then berry to roberton, howe, hurley, or rance? this would leave me with 8 trades and needing to upgrade f6 and m8 and a possible sideways to gawn from grundy. as well as approximatey $180,000 in the bank

INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 17:05

Ross might fade him for that

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 17:05


INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 17:07

Callum Brown & Ben Reid omitted. Can't believe my eyes to see Reid omitted. Buckley trying to lose his job faster

    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 17:15

    I understand Brown but like you Pieman I am more than a little surprised to see Reidy being omitted!

      INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 17:25

      Staggered Wal. For Mason Cox. Please

        Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 18:00

        Reid has to be sore or something, surely they play him up fwd over Cox.
        Get down there Pieman and tell em to give Fatso a game…

          INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 18:01

          Buckley has some sort of fitness policy not aiding fatso's cause

            hedski · 30/06/2017 at 18:20

            Should judge selection on a pie eating comp.

              Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 19:09

              Would be close to leading the 2s goal kicking and that is Bucks problem, he thinks the whole team can kick a ball like he could, and less then 5 can in the entire squad, and that kills his gameplan every week.
              But he keeps coaching down the same path.

    neil Demons Delight · 30/06/2017 at 18:31

    When I first saw him play I thought it was Serena but itell you this kid can take a grab and has a lot of mongrel something some at the club don't have… The new coach will sort him out

      hedski · 30/06/2017 at 19:05


HarryO · 30/06/2017 at 17:08

is Scooter just precautionary and possibly a week? or has he restrained and 2-3 weeks…

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 18:58

    They're just saying a week so far…

Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 17:09

The weather is shitful over here Surf lol its a washing machine out there, im 2 hours from perth it might be missing them but they will cop it Sunday.

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 17:19

    Don't blame him. I'd rather go swimming with Great Whites than hang around Ross too

Mark · 30/06/2017 at 17:15

Oliver or Neale?

    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 17:19


Adsy · 30/06/2017 at 17:21

Danger, Martin, TMitchell, Zerrett, JPK, Treloar, H.Greenwood and…. Beams.

Who is the best mid in apart from those I've named to bring in for Beams? Cheers all!

    Wal · 30/06/2017 at 17:22

    Pendles, absolutely no question

    Bells · 30/06/2017 at 19:01

    Ablett. He's had a rest.
    Or Cripps for a cheaper option.

josh1010101 · 30/06/2017 at 17:22

What do you think i do, do i trade in docherty in a few weeks meaning i use an extra trade (12 trades left) and have to play ryan and witherden (Zac williams on bench) this week or do i trade in harbrow/hurley/howe this week saving a trade?

    golf · 30/06/2017 at 17:30

    get in docherty, you have the amount of trades where if you are in a situation like this you can use it, and use it well

Luke · 30/06/2017 at 17:29

Simpson or Newman on field in defence this week?

    Ja191 · 30/06/2017 at 18:09

    are you able to loop? if not I would say Newman. Simpson only really scores well when he's playing +1 in defence as we saw vs gold coast eg. Rotating him is hurting his scoring – newman safer option

    Sam_01 · 30/06/2017 at 18:22

    You would think the ball would be down in the Carlton backline a bit I'd go Simpson

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:20

    Loop Newman if you can.
    Not sure of his role with McVeigh back.

    Get rid of spp and beams
    And probably look at getting rid of nank and sandy

Joe T · 30/06/2017 at 17:40

Who's got the better JS between Beech and Brennan Cox? They'll be my F8 after trading out Hannan so purely looking for bench cover/cash generation

    Dougal · 30/06/2017 at 17:57

    Cox plays for Freo, always a risk….

    But he does have that DPP if you need it….

    Tough one, flip a coin.

Dougal · 30/06/2017 at 17:44

Hi community,

Glad to see it's a bit or a more relaxed panic room this week…. so far.

Quick question, goes against everything we learn and know as coaches. Missed Greenwood due to [insert poor excuse for not prioritising SC here]. Is it worth trading Lynch for Greenwood? With the plan for Greenwood to be a keeper. Would leave me with 7 trades for the run home

My only other headache is Nankervis in the forward line. Cheers community

    Sam_01 · 30/06/2017 at 18:20

    Well I doubt greenwood will be a top 6 averaging fwd from here till the end so don't pick him

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 18:34

    I am keeping him – but only because I bought him for 117k. In higgos words you would be close to 200k behind the competition and banking in a 100k loss on Lynch – so that is 300k down on everyone else. Probably not worth it as you are locking in your loss and picking up a bloke who isn't going to be a top 6 forward. Find an extra 100k and pick up Yeo, Heeney, Macrae, Dahl or Billings who are looking better and have a bit more experience.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/06/2017 at 18:01

he was "Surf and Turfed"

Borko · 30/06/2017 at 18:02

Who has best JS: White, Shoenmakers or Beech? Need a second opinion

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 18:30

    Schoenmakers – but he is 40k more expensive so probably not worth it at this stage of the season

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 18:17

Its time to ponder the VC options for another week. My major possibilities are Hannebery, the Doch, or Bontempelli. I am thinking going the Bont into Danger. The Bont could tear the Eagles a new one tomorrow with Priddis and a few other eagles missing. Good move? What are others thinking of doing?

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 18:24

    Gary doesn't mind playing north

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 18:33

      This is true Pieman. If I had Gazza he would be the man. But I dont. Didnt he rack up 215 SC points last time he played the shinboners?

    Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 18:36

    Yeah sounds good, I Don't have Gazza so I'm going Bont to the Dangerman also TOPHAWK1.

    Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 18:52

    Danger has the VC for me into Pendles

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 19:01

      I dont have dependlebury, if I did it would be a serious consideration.

    Shake n bake · 30/06/2017 at 18:54

    I was going to do the exact same Hawk but wen Danger into Merrett instead

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 19:00

      I dont have Zerrett….I would do the same if I did. I can grab him this week if I offload Tom Stewart for a rook and then upgrade either S Selwood or T lynch for Merrett. Just so bloody pricey compared to the bloke I am chasing this week…..the Bont.

    hedski · 30/06/2017 at 19:08

    Danger into my new mate Zerrett Toppa.

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 19:35

      Ahhhhh that is so tempting. Should I do a non Derek and "pay the price"? Here is the thing, If I get Zerrett this week I will need another 2 trades next week to get Gawn. If I get the Bont this week, I can get Gawn with one trade. (Nank to Gawn straight switch)

      I need to do NOTHING TONIGHT! Except knock down a few bourbons and watch Hanners, Buddy, Heeney, and Lloyd go BIG. Thats the plan. hehe Cheers

    Defying_Madness · 30/06/2017 at 19:10

    I think I am going Kreuzer into Danger

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:14

    Surely Ablett goes big in his 300th?
    Bont into the Son of God for me.

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 19:31

    Hutchins will have an easy night on Bont he usually has to cope with players who get 35+ disposals

      Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:41

      True, gotta be wary of that scenario.

Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 18:21

Do we think Nank to Ryder is a worthwhile trade, community? That will finish my forward line, as I already have Buddy, Heeney, Dahl, Macrae and Yeo,will leave me with 7 trades and 3 short of full premo …. I plan to trade Wittsy for Gawn next week.

Thanks guys.

    Stirlsy · 30/06/2017 at 18:59

    You would be looking at a 90 to 95 avg for rest of year from him, scores in 80s then pops out a 120 every now and then but also gives ruck cover if something goes wrong there.
    Not the worst option and will prob save you some cash.

    lozbruh · 30/06/2017 at 19:04

    nah why is everyone trading nank. he is averaging 93

      Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 19:11

      Because he been on a downward spiral for some weeks now and it doesn't look like he will now be a top 6 forward….that's why.

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:22

    Too sideways for me lamme.
    One is averaging 93.08 and the other 92.92.

      Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 19:24

      Yeah thanks Ranger, I might go Greene instead.

    Whatyasmokin · 01/07/2017 at 03:34

    Would go Greene/Heeney/Macrae/Dahl type over Ryder any day. Depends what you want though with other factors such as DP.

    Nank>Ryder is completely sideways in that dual position aspect too so no way would I pull the trigger on that trade.

Gjlane123 · 30/06/2017 at 18:37

Heeney or Green ???

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 18:42

    Heeney for me mate. Greene apparently rolled an ankle at training yesterday. Probably will play, but Heeney is the better package.

      Gjlane123 · 30/06/2017 at 19:34

      Done deal thanks mate !

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 18:47

    Heeney is the package

      Gjlane123 · 30/06/2017 at 19:34

      Done deal ! Cheers for input

Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 18:46

I reckon that the best decision is to VC Danger this week. This is because if you bank someone's score of 120+ as VC you can always be nervous that Danger will beat it – and he probably will. It means that if Danger goes huge you won't miss because you took (correctly) a 125 from your VC. If Danger has a rare spudly effort then you are one step ahead of the 50% of the comp who whacked the C on him, and have a second chance to get it right compared to everyone else.

I am going C on Zerrett after Danger VC as I reckon his class on the outside will absolutely carve up the Lions.

That being said I captained Joel Selwood last week so maybe take my advice on captaincy with a pich of salt 🙂

Good luck this week!

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 18:57

    Nothing wrong with that mate! I dont have Zerrett though. If I VC'd Danger, and he spuds, my options are much more limited to yours. Tom Mitchell or Adam Treloar are my only realistic C plays at that point. But the odds say that Danger will grab 130+, so I might still entertain your strategy. Cheers Finnius

      Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 19:20

      Well Titch and Treloar are both decent options. I just think that there is so much more upside to going Danger and backing him in rather than being very nervous about your VC not being good enough.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:16

    Yep, can't listen to you Finnius, you have no credibility left after last week's effort…lol, just kidding mate, could've happened to anyone.

Best rookie to trade in this week?

    Hoot · 30/06/2017 at 19:10

    Beams out opens up the 1 game A.witherden

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 18:50

I am still tossing up whether to trade or not. I have 8 trades left and holding back by not doing anything could bear fruit come the crunch rounds. Still I have Stewart to off load and I want the Bont this week at his current price. I can sleep on it tonight.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/06/2017 at 19:05

    same hawk

    I have barratt who has done his job but has to go as he is going to bleed some serious cash the next couple of weeks.
    Need to trade him to a mid/fwd DPP as have greenwood fwd at the moment and this would create a swing with greenwood becoming a F7/M9 over next 2-3 weeks.
    was gonna go brown but now he has been dropped to an E.
    not many other DPP's so may still go brown.

    will he get another gig when buckley gets the ar$e and they play the kids?
    could do witherden but then would have two def/mid DPPS on the mid bench and no DPP fwd.
    would rather bring in witherden in defence ceating a DPP with Hibberd int he mids.


      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 19:22

      Witherden is probably your man. If you trade out Barratt to Witherden via DPP you should still have plenty of def/mid swing options available with the likes of Taylor Adams and Jake Lloyd. That would free you up the cash to do that premo midfield upgrade upgrade. Despite going a week early on Witherden, his JS does appear pretty good. Good luck Trigg!

      The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:43

      I was in a similar spot TH and I've gone with Witherden.
      He'll stay on the mid bench with Bolton or Pickett.

Thomas · 30/06/2017 at 18:51

Scott Selwood to gray and 86k in the bank so I can upgrade Luke Ryan in a few weeks or cop him as my last defender and upgrade Selwood to a ultra premo

Bells · 30/06/2017 at 18:52

FFS Buckly play Scharenberg. He's supposed to be my 2nd half bench cover.
Josh DC, SCOOTER out. Plans to go to Joel in a few weeks in serious jeopardy now.
Greene better play or I'm toast.

lewie · 30/06/2017 at 19:01

guys can u help me out on what to do
have 7 trades left
def – doctor, Adams, laird, Lloyd, hibberd, witherden [perryman, Ryan]
mid – titch, peddles, Bont, ross, Cripps, hannerz, shuey, rocky [bolton, cousins, mount ford
ruck – grundy, macevoy
fwd – dalha, buddy, heeney, lynch, nank, greenwood [parsons, eddy]

cheers bois

    brad stev · 30/06/2017 at 19:43

    matt white is a must

Alby · 30/06/2017 at 19:06

10 trades left thinking of getting rid of T Lynch GC and Barret for Yao and White is this a wise move or should I hold onto Lynch and give him a chance as I have only had him 2 weeks and his done stuff all.

    Dave · 30/06/2017 at 19:12

    Hold lynch

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:44

    Give Lynch another chance, he's a better player than his low scores this year.

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:47

    If I had 10 trades I'd get Yeo.
    In a MID/FWD vs KPF competition the MID/FWD wins every time.
    Dunno about White tho…

Superfish · 30/06/2017 at 19:07

What defender to buy out of roberton Hurley rance or hibberd?

Joe · 30/06/2017 at 19:11

To field Newman or Shaw? Cannot loophole

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:19

    Take the punt on Shaw with no Williams there…could go well.

      BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 19:47


Hoot · 30/06/2017 at 19:11

Roberton for a chance at 130+

Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:12

Only got cover on one line this week, fingers bloody crossed!
Between the Omissions, injuries and illnesses this week, my bench cupboard is almost bare.

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 19:19

    Same 🙁

    Fingers crossed

    BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 19:48

    Good luck Russty! It's been a season where late changes/outs have been minimal. So let's hope that continues

    3 (that's what I'm doing)

Dan · 30/06/2017 at 19:26

Which option community? Greenwood my only rookie onfield with 7 trades and $900 in the bank.

Lynch down to Witherden, which helps me raise funds for SPP – Jelwood and Greenwood to Gawn. Means I will field SPP for a couple of weeks more.


Hold until next week and reassess whether I pull the trigger on the Gawn trade. I don't need to cull Lynch to find the Jelwood trade as it will only require around 100k. But can't see myself getting the funds for Lynch – Gawn as cash cows now an issue.
Sorry for the long text. Really need some help!!!

Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:27

Wish I hadn't traded out Koby Stevens to Tom Lynch (Adelaide) last week now, came back to bite me immediately lol, Stevens scores 20 more than him and now Lynch is out with some meningitis crap for god knows how long.
Sometimes holding is the best option.

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:41

    The SC Gods don't like sideways trades Russty, it's amazing how many times it comes back to bite you!

      Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 19:58

      True dat mate, I thought Stevens was on a downward spiral and then he almost posts another tonne doh!

Andrew · 30/06/2017 at 19:33

Do I loophole Newman, Hibberd or Lloyd tonight?

    newman, should I vc heeney

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 19:45

    Worried what role he'll play with McVeigh back.
    He was up on a wing for a fair bit last week.

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 21:11

    Hope you went Lloyd – newman is looking very good

      The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 21:13

      Yeah, looks like it's Lloyd that's being affected by the return of McVeigh so far.

        Andrew · 30/06/2017 at 22:05

        Good replies.. I went Newman. I thought Oliver might take him. Ugly game to watch… except when buddy gets it

        Whatyasmokin · 01/07/2017 at 03:40

        27 touches, 22 by foot. A goal etc etc Lloydy is fine.

red bruz · 30/06/2017 at 19:43

heeney vc

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 19:48

    Wow! Big call! Gutsy mate. Hope it pays off.

      BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 19:49

      My prediction… He'll be the highest scorer on the ground

Hoot · 30/06/2017 at 19:49

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 22:00

    The poor mans Toby Greene

red5 · 30/06/2017 at 20:03

IN: Yeo or Green
OUT: Nank or Lynch

    Whatyasmokin · 01/07/2017 at 03:40

    None of above. Unless near the top of the supercoach pile and trying to get to top rank.

Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 20:10

Buddy's having a good start….go you ten million dollar bastard!

Defying_Madness · 30/06/2017 at 20:10

Franklin on fire. Making up for all the turds he has made.

    Bout time the ten million dollar man started paying his bills.

Keenbutclueless · 30/06/2017 at 20:15

Of course I have Mills. Selwood last week, Mills this week. Should have loopholed him I suppose, but you do have to back your team in

    INPieman · 30/06/2017 at 20:35

    So you won't be a Bugg character witness Keen?

      Keenbutclueless · 30/06/2017 at 20:58

      I ain't no media personality or politician, so probably won't get that call

    Ernie · 30/06/2017 at 21:06

    Know how you feel mate. I had Lloyd – 4 points and off then Selwood 2 points and off. Very frustrating. Luck plays a big part in footy and SC.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 01/07/2017 at 01:31

      If you also had mills that's the trifecta

      Really puts a cat amongst the birds.

Nuggety · 30/06/2017 at 20:18

I'm not a hanners hater but watching him as my opponent has him. On 18 points then gets caught holding the ball, resulting in a Hannah goal. Next minute he's on 19 points. What the ??

    BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 20:26

    Just delayed points. Try calling the game for every action players do!! Like say when two guys go for the ball, one tackles, the openent still gathers and kicks in the same action. But at the same moment a third player smothers the kick. The CD guys have to call out each players number and the action(s) committed for every bit of player (to data entry persons). In a fast paced game it gets intense.

      BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 20:29

      So sometimes some plays get put on pause for review in breaks in play.

Holty · 30/06/2017 at 20:20

Decided to invest some money in draftstars today for melb vs sydney game. Put 3 sides in all with Mills in them. Now that went well.

    BlueNath · 30/06/2017 at 20:21

    That's harsh

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 20:22

    At least you can trade him out at half time….

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 30/06/2017 at 22:55

    0 NO

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 23:12

    You mean gamble some money…always an element of risk involved mate, Lotto's my biggest gamble every week.

    Bells · 01/07/2017 at 09:47

    Gambling is for mugs.

Moppy · 30/06/2017 at 20:23

Mills will be cheap in a couple of weeks thanks to Bugg the thug = minimum 4 weeks.

    Captain Risky · 30/06/2017 at 21:56

    Poor old Mills only had a B/E of 39 too. Could be a decent D7 though

    Whatyasmokin · 01/07/2017 at 03:42

    Who would want Mills though? Not supercoach relevant….although is a quality player.

Joshua · 30/06/2017 at 20:26

Should've pulled the trigger on Shaw to T-Mac, oh well hope Shaw can have a good one

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 20:28

    Could have a great one without Williams in the picture…have faith.

Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 20:45

that sucks 🙁

Lazza · 30/06/2017 at 20:51

Anyone watching … Hibbered kicks to opposition (Newman) and CD dock Hannan 3 points …

    DeeSuprem · 30/06/2017 at 21:20

    Sounds OK according to the unpublished rules

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 21:27

    There's probably a team of 5 guys or so reviewing every quarter at each break…and then after the game for 2 hours…to collate stats, sometimes there would be reversals of points because of things noticed, after the fact.

Wombatsfc · 30/06/2017 at 21:05

Within the parameters of the AFL tribunal rules is Buggs hit on Mills any worse than Houli's hit on Lamb?
The unpopular answer is No but it's also the right answer. Both were intentional high hits with sufficient force to concuss the opponent and render him unable to continue in the game.
According to the RULES that the AFL used to double Bashers penalty they are exactly the same offense. So, if Bugg gets 6-weeks the AFL should be obliged to appeal the decision and have it reduced to 4.

If Bashers character refs were irrelevant then the circumstances of the bugg/mills incident should also be irrelevant

    wombatsfc · 30/06/2017 at 21:06

    Troll your heart out Pieman.

      Lazza · 30/06/2017 at 21:09

      He hasn't got time… has to come up with reasons as to why he recommended people select Scharenburg and Brown. 🙂

        Hobonic · 30/06/2017 at 22:39

        Ha,ha Lazza. I like your comment because unfortunately I have them both because I thought Pieman knew what he was talking about.

          Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:45

          Maybe you should make your own decisions when it comes to bringing players into your side, based on your own research…Scharenberg and Brown will be good players in the future, not their fault their Coach decided to drop them.

            Jose · 01/07/2017 at 09:29

            Well, it probably was their fault

          Bells · 01/07/2017 at 09:31

          To be fair he prob does. It's Buckley who doesn't.

        INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 09:54

        I don't push trade buttons for people Lazza. I can't recall seeing a decent suggestion from you either. Wombat is a life long shit stirrer. Gives him his trills

        pod · 01/07/2017 at 10:29

        Lazza, the worst thing a person can do is blame someone else for their problems. Pieman is a much loved community member and contributes with only positive feedback. If something he recommends doesn't work out the way you'd like then maybe you should consider investing more of your time to research the subject to find a satisfactory outcome.

        I have gained some very handy tips from Pieman over the seasons which has improved my SC standing.

          INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 10:45

          Cheers Pod. Too many trolls looking for someone to blame. If you don't like someone's advice just ignore it

      Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 21:17

      What's with the feud between you 2 guys?….how long has it been going on…who started it. and why….and when are you gonna kiss and make up? 🙂

        INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 09:54

        That won't be happening Russty. Been going on for years

    Defying_Madness · 30/06/2017 at 21:09

    Houli's was not intentional IMO. Bugg should get 6 weeks

      DeeSupreme · 30/06/2017 at 21:19

      Why else did he throw his elbow back towards his opponent if he wasn't trying to hit him? I've seen Bachar play a few times and he doesn't randomly throw his elbow backwards when he's running

      Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 21:20

      No offence mate but if Houli's backhander to Lamb wasn't intentional, what was he trying to do….swat away an aggressive Magpie trying to harvest his beard for a nest?

      Looked like he was trying to smash him in the head to me.

        Bells · 01/07/2017 at 09:34

        Yes was trying to swat a guy off him. Unluckily fit him on temple.
        Bugg gets six. There's no early plea available.

      INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 09:55

      Agree Defying

    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 21:10

    Disagree. Bugg's was closed fist and probably severe impact as opposed to high.

    DeeSupreme · 30/06/2017 at 21:15

    No way mate. Lamb was knocked out cold Mills was just a bit groggy. Buggy should only get the 2 that Bachar was originally given

      Jose · 01/07/2017 at 09:33

      Haha one eyed supporting at its finest. Bugg is a roach and should rubbed out for 6+

    JohndJames · 30/06/2017 at 21:17

    Four weeks down to three for guilty plea.

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 21:35

    It's funny coz its true.
    Suck that AFL

    The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 21:38

    Not sure about that one Wombats, the AFL asked for 4wks originally and that's what they ended up with.
    You were spot on with the pre season Kreuzer tip tho, shoulda bloody taken you up on it.

      Wombatsfc · 30/06/2017 at 21:52

      I must have mis-explained Ranger. I agree with the AFL on Basher getting 4 weeks, lamb turned up at his primary school on thursday thinking he was still a grade 5 student and Big Bad Basher had no reason for throwing the elbow other than to hit the innocent Lamb. Buggs hit was equally as intentional but caused less damage so he should get less.
      I traded Kruez when he posted an injury influenced sub 50 and had the following week off. The rules say if a ruck breaks trade him out.

        The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 22:10

        Didn't have you down as a rules man Wombats. Shame on you!

    Cogla13 · 01/07/2017 at 07:21

    He deserves 6 weeks at least for that. Much worse that Houli's back hander. This was a blatant jab. No idea mate. You obviously are a wombat.

      INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 09:51

      Completely agree with you Cogla on the 6 weeks & wombat verdict

      BigBoyBananana · 01/07/2017 at 09:27

      Was off for the first 11 mins of the match. Found it tough to get into it after that

    Bells · 01/07/2017 at 13:06

    Obviously carrying an injury from being floored last week.

Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 21:32

Oliver, Heeney, Lloyd and, Buddy on the bench. Not exactly the lineup of a SC champion

    WombatsFC · 30/06/2017 at 21:44

    Sh!t happens, I had Jelwood as Capt last week and plenty of other crucial players who got injured.
    The SC game is as much about luck as it is about research

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 21:38

Bloody happy with Houli's penalty. 4 weeks. That is fair and reasonable penalty for his moment of madness. I am sure he is a good guy….. Case closed.

That off the ball act by Thomas Bugg tonight will open even more cans of worms. That jab to Mills' head had a "Barry Hall" look about it.

Holidays, happy holidays!

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 21:47

    Yeah well…hopefully he learned a lesson from it, next time he decides to K.O someone, don't try to recruit Politicians or fellow popular Muslim Celebrities to bat for him when their opinions aren't even relevant…and realize, if you did it, you're gonna pay for it.

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2017 at 21:51

      Nailed it mate. Could not have put it better.

        Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:51

        No excuse for that behaviour, and the Circus of media he created after it either. Should've just copped his dues.

redherringfc · 30/06/2017 at 21:48

copied from footy wire:

"Scott Pendlebury has emphatically thrown his support behind Nathan Buckley"

      Hanners over Dusty continues to make me suffer

        The Ranger · 30/06/2017 at 22:12

        Obviously not drinking heavily enough

          Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:14

          They should slip some Vodka into his Gatorade at the breaks 🙂

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 23:09

    Just listened to Longmire's press conference after the game, apparently Hanners copped a corky, so that could account for his lower score tonight.

    Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 23:23

    Rage traded him out after the completion of round 3, no regrets, not going to be a top 8 mid this year

      Defying_Madness · 30/06/2017 at 23:28

      Has more of a chance to finish top 8 over Fyfe. Not sure if you should be happy you traded him out, he had a huge period after you got rid of him

        Iamme · 30/06/2017 at 23:37

        True, but I traded Fyfe out during his bye for the Bont, so all good and now just waiting till next week to grab Zerret to complete midfield.

Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:03

Has McVeigh diluted Lloyd's points tonight?….do we have to think about offloading Lloyd now?…aaaargh

    Russell4 · 30/06/2017 at 22:36

    Don't be stupid. Lloyd was ok. Macca very good. You worry too much.

      Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:48

      Thanks Russell, i'll try not to worry so much from now on.

Hanners playing a concerning amount of time up forward

Jordan · 30/06/2017 at 22:21

Parker not gone below the ton since I got him a couple weeks ago dirt cheap

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 22:52

    Well done Jordan he was ignored by the masses despite being a genuine champ at a bargain price. I wish I had have traded scooter for him this week.

Defying_Madness · 30/06/2017 at 22:25

Not sure if I should be happy. I own Buddy, Hibberd and JPK but then Lloyd, Heeney and Hanners brought my score down.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:29

    Lloyd, 89, Heeney 93…only Hanners dragged your score down, not too bad really.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:30

    and remember, Buddy was predicted 60.

Wombatsfc · 30/06/2017 at 22:26

Newman 25 disp @48% and 1 point = 89 SC
Lloyd 27 disp @85% and a goal = 89 SC
Both had 19 kicks.

    Pman · 30/06/2017 at 22:48

    It is a lottery this year.

    Skinny McThin · 30/06/2017 at 22:49

    That's obviously pre-factoring but I'd like to see a Champion data exec sweat as he explains why 19 kicks at 48% efficiency can be equally as effective as 19 kicks at 85% efficiency. Maybe they don't understand the relationship between efficiency and effective.

    Leeds17 · 01/07/2017 at 12:49

    Newman 5 tackles, 7 Intercept possessions,
    J.Lloyd 1 tackle, 3 Intercept possessions.

B T · 30/06/2017 at 22:31

So incredibly cowardly from Bugg, he'll enjoy a break on the sideline while we enjoy having him out of the game.

He had a shocker of a game as well. Walked around after the game like nothing had happened. Didn't look he even approached Mills to apoligise.

He is just a weak human and deserves all the flack he has to cop over the next month and a half.

    Ramrod · 30/06/2017 at 22:44

    Yes, I saw that. It won't help his case. Notice the Demon supporters saying he should get 2 weeks. What a joke. 4-6 weeks.

      neil Demons Delight · 01/07/2017 at 00:07

      well heres one Dee supporter who doesn't Ramrod. THAT WAS A DOG ACT. Should get 6 We are better than that and he has form more worried about VINEY.Same injury as trengrove and he really hasn't come back .Hope I am wrong

    Bells · 01/07/2017 at 09:44

    Swans fan here. He'll cop six but let's not hang the guy. They have their 'fight or flight' part of their brain set to extreme during early action. Sometimes things happen when your brain is working from that area. Was an intentional act under law, but in reality I think it was an almost unthinking act, certainly not from rational part of brain.
    Six weeks is the way we keep that stuff to an absolute minimum. Moving on now.

      Leeds17 · 01/07/2017 at 12:23

      spot on Bells

    JohndJames · 01/07/2017 at 14:14

    He went up to Mills on the ground and said sorry,plus said he would take whatever suspension was thrown at him,Buggy will plead guilty and take his 4 to 6 weeks.

    Russty_ · 01/07/2017 at 18:02

    Not that I like Soccer at all cause I think it's a wuss game but…I think the AFL should consider the yellow/red card scenario..and if it's red, the tribunal on the Monday for the suspension.
    Being sent out of the remainder of the game would be embarrassing for players who commit a stupid violent act.
    Might make guys rethink their spontaneous actions.

      JohndJames · 01/07/2017 at 20:41

      I'd only have it for the finals.

He Man · 30/06/2017 at 22:33

Take Buddy's 123 or go Danger?

    Ja191 · 30/06/2017 at 22:35


    Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 22:36

    That's why I VC Danger so I don't have this conundrum! Danger has a 5 rd average of 150 so you have to back him in.

    Ostrich · 30/06/2017 at 22:42

    I am VCing Danger but I am not confident. If their games weren't so close together I'd go Zerrett and Pendles.

      Pman · 30/06/2017 at 22:53

      Danger VC into Pendles C in his 250th game against the Hawks (who he averages 140 odd in his last three games against them) is a "money in the bank" selection this week.

    Swans2012 · 01/07/2017 at 00:00

    I think I'm taking, the way the last few weeks have gone if I leave it with danger he'll get knocked out on 2. And at the end of the day if it was 130 instead of 122 I'd be locking it so I'm just going to play it safe and lock it in…. if danger goes 150 I miss 28 points, no real disaster….

      Choice · 01/07/2017 at 00:39

      This stage of the league games 28 points is huge!

        Swans2012 · 01/07/2017 at 07:14

        But it could just as easily go the other way, he's not averaging 150 for the season. Percentage play is to take, plus I'm done with risks this season….. now watch danger go 206

    Pitch 72 · 01/07/2017 at 08:37

    Not enough, look elsewhere.

    pod · 01/07/2017 at 10:40

    Take it if you think Danger will get smashed by GWS.

B T · 30/06/2017 at 22:51

479 from 5

Hanners was pretty poor tonight.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 22:54

    Not bad at all BT…to repeat after I deleted my comment, I got 560 from 6 lol

      Finnius123 · 30/06/2017 at 22:55

      510 from 5 – pretty happy with that as it was mainly backmen/forwards and JPK

Just sayin · 30/06/2017 at 23:04

I thought Nankervis rucked well against Gawn. Me thinks that a few SCers will not rush into trading in Gawn in round 16. Gawn did ok but I wonder how he will go against the better rucks? If Sandi does ok this round, I may hang onto him for another week because Gawn's price will keep tumbling.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2017 at 23:07

    You mean Naismith, sucks not having a profile, cause ya can't edit your comments lol, yeah Gawn hasn't set the world on fire…yet.

      Just sayin · 01/07/2017 at 01:18

      Yeah, yeah.

    Derek · 01/07/2017 at 10:44

    Gawn will be $513 and BE 93 next week. That will be his bottom

    pod · 01/07/2017 at 10:44

    Gawn was 'second up from a spell' so don't worry about it too much.

    Leeds17 · 01/07/2017 at 12:18

    The bigger concern is Melbourne's depleted mids, much easier to get HOTAs with Viney & Jones in there.

Nice work

iLoveNMFC · 30/06/2017 at 23:57

Docherty or Bont VC?

    Finnius123 · 01/07/2017 at 00:37


Choice · 01/07/2017 at 00:37

Beams for Rockliff, Zerret or Mitchell?
Martin too expensive and hinders my final upgrade although his finals games are delicious

    Whatyasmokin · 01/07/2017 at 03:28

    Not Rockliff if you have low trades. I'd trade in Zerrett personally. Rockliff if you want those occasional massive scores.

Bug is a Thug · 01/07/2017 at 01:24

Hi all
Really confused who to bring in for my final mid…Z. Merrett, (higher average and great run home) or Bontempelli (cheaper and leaves cash for other upgrades).

    Russty_ · 01/07/2017 at 01:41

    I'd say, get Bont while he's dirt cheap..and Merrett later if possible.

    Mongul · 01/07/2017 at 09:32

    Easy. Zerrett because he will not get cheaper despite what the other guy said. Bont good and cheap but if you want the best?, plus hardly anyone has him.

    Derek · 01/07/2017 at 10:42

    Bont will play in the guts. It's the only way they win games. He will dominate the run home. Welcome to my team finally Mr Bont.

Murray · 01/07/2017 at 08:22

I have Hannan with a loophole with parsons.
Should I take hannans 57 pts or go with parsons?

    Pitch 72 · 01/07/2017 at 08:35

    Go with parsons, If Parsons goes back to scheduled programming he wont get much less than 57, worth the risk imo.

      Murray · 01/07/2017 at 08:43

      Thanks pitch

CaptKaOs · 01/07/2017 at 09:18

Thoughts on Dangers score if Jelwood plays vs doesn't play?
Quite a few of their disposals go to each other. Does GWS try a tag on Danger?

    pod · 01/07/2017 at 10:39

    Danger will get a lot of attention. Zorko's influence was cut when Lions played them. I know Danger is a class above but I'm expecting he'll have a lesser impact than his last few games.

    Leeds17 · 01/07/2017 at 12:21

    Danger is exceptionally hard to tag.

BigBoyBananana · 01/07/2017 at 09:31

7 Trades left, ranked inside top 2%

Trade Z. Williams to Howe/Roberton/Hurley or keep Wiliiams and trade Stewart to Withedern/Ryan? To cover a donut.

    Hubba · 01/07/2017 at 10:11

    Trade stewart

TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 10:14

It's DD day for me. I have 8 trades left and have Tom Stewart who needs to be offloaded for a rookie. I can then upgrade either Berry or Scooter for Bontempelli or Zach Merrett.

If I trade out Tom Stewart who will be out for 4-6 weeks, is it therefore possible that Zach Guthrie will play Stewart's role during that time? Is Zach Guthrie good enough to stay in that Geelong side during Stewart's absence? If he is, then I would get 4-6 weeks game time out of him. I am considering taking a calculated punt….Tom Stewart OUT, and Zach Guthrie IN. ($102K- bloody bargain). This risk of going super early on Guthrie is helped by the fact that Mitch Hibberd, my perma loophole slave is playing this week.

In doing so, this trade would raise me $225K. I have $60K in my warchest . If I then trade in Bontempelli at the expense of Scooter, it would leave me $135K for the straight Nankervis to Gawn upgrade. If I trade in Bontempelli for Berry, it would leave me with $60K for next week. That would not be enough for the straight Nank to Gawn switch, thus triggering an extra trade. I do not want to do that as it would only leave me with 4 trades. As such, I think Zerrett is out of reach for the time being as I need to save that trade next week.

As such I am contemplating the following- Tom Stewart to Zach Guthrie, and Scooter (He seems like he is held together with bandages at the moment) to Bontempelli this week, and then Nank to Gawn next week. I would be full premo with 5 trades left going into round 17.

What will Gawn be worth next week after his 96 last night? Anybody know?

Anyway, thoughts always appreciated. Cheers

    INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 10:32

    Gawn was projected to lose 44k with a projected score of 88. He got 96 so I'd say he loses 40k & sits at 510ish. I'd say he probably still has a BE of around 130. So you may not need to jump on next week. Will be an interesting battle with Kreuzer next week. I'd pick Witherden over Guthrie if you don't have him for what it's worth

      TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 10:42

      Yeah, I knew that would probably be the consensus. Going Zach Guthrie is probably just pushing my luck a bit too far for the sake of $15K. The fact that Gawn has dropped a bit more than I thought $510K and could drop below $500K with a BE of 130 next week vs Kruezer does mean trading in Witherden with that good first game under his belt does now make a lot more sense. (DPP as well).

      Still bloody fretting on who to upgrade for the Bont, Berry or Scooter…aaaargghhhh

    Derek · 01/07/2017 at 10:39

    The Bont is a good call.

    An extra $15k will get Witherden with DPP to swing with Berry.

    Gawn will be $513k and be around 93

      TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 10:50

      Thanks Derek. I have come to my senses about Zach Guthrie. Just a bit over the top when you have Witherden + DPP with a game under his belt up for grabs. Berry and Witherden would then turn into the ultimate Brisbane swingers! hehe. Gawn looks like he is going to drop a bit more than I thought by the looks of it in any case. (Kruezer will test him next week)

    Swans2012 · 01/07/2017 at 10:47

    I'm with the others, and have myself gone witherden, though I am nervous I will be left without a def loophole if hibb keeps getting games. Got Shaw at d7 but no loophole!

      TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 11:00

      Cheers Swannie. Just see what happens with Hibberd in the next few weeks, if he plays he will make some handy coin. Knowing this game, some other defensive player will go down, get dropped, etc. I am just going to forfeit that defensive loophole play for a week or two and wait and see what happens. (I am going Witherden instead BTW, and grab Bontempelli for Scooter shortly- just waiting for the final team announcements for Eagles-Dogs game to come through)

        Swans2012 · 01/07/2017 at 11:17

        My trades similar this week, beams to bont scooter to witherden, should fund swallow to rocky and witts to gawn next week, with the change getting greenwood to a real f7 in a few weeks. That'll leave 2 trades but premoish cover on all lines with 5 rounds left, tight but doable maybe sort of hopefully lol

        As for the defensive loophole I'm with you, it is very rare for me to have too many playing players late in a season! One will appear!

          TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 11:21

          Do you have Zerrett? If not you can also consider getting him instead of Rocky? He still seems hampered with that shoulder at the moment. If you do have Zerrett, well then I am jealous, because I am still 2-3 weeks away before I can get that little beast.

    Sunshine boy · 01/07/2017 at 12:27

    You know what. I am pondering whether I will get Maxie boy in round 17. I certainly will wait at least another week. I have Grundy and Sandi and Ryder forward? Big Max didn't dominate against an ordinary ruck last night so he might struggle against an inform Carlton ruckman. What will his price be then? With the Dees losing players left right and centre, Max's SC score will also be affected by more losses then wins. I will keep Sandi for a little longer. Who knows. Sandi might recapture his old form. I am sure there are many others who kept Sandi for Maxie, but now I will sit and wait. Good luck everyone because if you don't have luck you are stuffed.

    Beezneez · 01/07/2017 at 12:54

    I also have 8 trades and need to trade out Beams. I agree with Derek that the Bont is a good call especially now he's getting more midfield time. I usually never grab a rookie before they're on the bubble but, having said that, I'm getting Witherden tomorrow for Barrett for cash generation to get J Selwood for a rookie next week or in round 17. I will then be able to loophole Witherden with Greenwood in the mids and Lloyd and Adams in def.

    My option for Beams was always going to be Zerrett but was also thinking about Cripps to allow for more cash for a possible Nank/Lynch trade to Gawn in a week or so. However, have gone back to my original plan to get Zerrett and only use the three trades. I already have Bont.

      Derek · 01/07/2017 at 13:12

      I just have one trade this week. Stewart to Bont.

    JohndJames · 01/07/2017 at 14:06

    I was going to get Maxy in two weeks time,but he looked sore last night,not sure it is going to be worth the trade,unless Nanks scores nosedive.

Hubba · 01/07/2017 at 10:15

How many minutes a week do top 5k coaches spend on fantasy football? Im stuck ouside the top 10k in sc this year… do i need to up my commitment? Include reading forums, reading be's etc… i tracked it this week..72 mins….

    TOPHAWK1 · 01/07/2017 at 10:23

    Just over an hour Hubba? I think you need to invest a bit more time than that each week. I spend at least 72 minutes each week trading in and reverse trading out, let alone anything else. 😉 I reckon 3 hours per week or at least half an hour each day is vital, to stay up to date with all the rolling developments. Just my two cents worth. Hope you move up the ranking mate!

      pod · 01/07/2017 at 10:33

      Agree TopHawk, most of my time is spent hitting the reverse button.

    LetsGo · 01/07/2017 at 11:29

    I'm looking at supercoach related things pretty much all day

hurley, howe, roberton or rance?

    Ja191 · 01/07/2017 at 10:56

    All not bad options but would say Roberton will average the best from here (marginally) + good pod/jezza Howe not too bad either

    INPieman · 01/07/2017 at 11:03

    Only recognised tagger they have is Jacobs. And he's not playing. North seem to give up big scores to someone each week. I think it's worth a punt. Loving those stats from Connoisseur

    If you have Gazza, why not. His record against North is stellar, and that is probably an understatement. It's his 300th game, had a week off to prepare for the big game and is playing at home. If I had him, he would get the VC without a second thought. He could go absolutely massive today. If he gets hurt, then you still have Danger in the wings. Worth it IMO.

Spekky · 01/07/2017 at 11:31

Was that just a rumour with Greene? Do we know if he is playing tonight?

    Derek · 01/07/2017 at 11:39

    Apparently he did get injured at training but st this stage he is playing

The Ranger · 01/07/2017 at 11:50

Pedersens 56 is worrying me.
Got 53K in the kitty, am I still going to be able to go straight from Pedersen to Gawn next week?
Think it might be tight.

    Leeds17 · 01/07/2017 at 12:09

    yep going to be tight!

Neverweaken · 01/07/2017 at 11:51

Ok. So I keep Heeny and Newman on the ground and loophole Buddy and Z Jones. Oh well. 88 and 89 on field aren't too bad I suppose

    Finnius123 · 01/07/2017 at 13:58

    well you can loophole the other 2 so you ended up doing very well

red5 · 01/07/2017 at 11:57

Is Lynch a definite trade?
I've got 11 trades.
Thinking Yeo or Greene

    The Ranger · 01/07/2017 at 11:58

    It's a luxury but if I had 11 trades I'd get Yeo in for Lynch.

should i trade either scooter/beams to witherden today?? which ever i dont trade will be rocky/jelwood in the next fortnight… HELP!

    Finnius123 · 01/07/2017 at 13:58

    Scooter will be back earlier than beams so if you are trading both eventually get rid of beams now

Relton · 01/07/2017 at 14:20

T.Lynch Two scores of 30 and doesnt even look to be gettin in the game looks avg. Call me crazy but Im considering fielding parsons this week

    Cogla13 · 02/07/2017 at 08:41

    So did you do it? Hopefully you didn't.

Finnius123 · 01/07/2017 at 15:49

What is Rory Laird doing? Had a couple of shockers the past few weeks

    Shoulda · 02/07/2017 at 10:07

    If you have played football? – you would have said he has played well but in terms of SC points, not so.

      Leeds17 · 02/07/2017 at 19:59

      Been poor since the Geelong game where he's got a bad head knock, poise and decision making not up to his own lofty standards, back him to come good.

Sully321 · 01/07/2017 at 17:25

take dochs 122 as C or go with Danger? might just stay with danger as my opponent has him and my team is better

garfield_da_cat · 01/07/2017 at 18:59

Ok so i have a problem and need advice. I am wanting to use the vc loophole but have already put the emergency on greenwood. My understanding is that if i put strndika on the field as my captain and merret on bench as emergency then i would get greenwoods score given you get the score of the lowest scoring emergency. Am i right in saying this?

Elizabeth44 · 01/07/2017 at 22:50

I am trying my first Captain's loophole and am a bit nervous in case I mess up. I have the VC on Dangerfield. Do I put Strnadica on the field as C and put Sandilands as emergency?

    Monsta · 01/07/2017 at 23:15


      Elizabeth44 · 02/07/2017 at 08:33

      The ok, thanks. I hope you are right Monsta or else you are a Monster.

        Russty_ · 02/07/2017 at 13:41

        Lol, yeah Elizabeth he's right, it'll work for you.

Jess · 01/07/2017 at 23:22

I can still pull the pin on Beams to Neale? Yes or other option? Got Merrett and Pendles

tony · 11/08/2017 at 23:51
