SuperCoach RD16: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on


G’day Community,

Welcome to a podcastinduced-high of a Cheat Sheet.

This week we have number of buy-in options and a couple of clear trades.

Sandi has done his hammy and broken my heart, time to move him on. Do we grab young Sean ‘Hodor’ Darcy or do we pick up the big bearded bastard Max Gawn?

Tommy Rockliff looks cooked so we’ve given him a bake with the hope that he responds like Nankervis and Lynch did last week.

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to this weeks podcast then stop reading now, dim the lights and enjoy. It was a pleasure joining Jock for a chat about all things fantasy footy.

We need to be conserving trades but if you have a lot (like 8 is a lot right now based on my research) then you can think about moving your Fyfe’s, Shaw’s or Nank’s.

Have both Rocky and Shaw . Im sticking fat this time of year. Have to use these minimal trades wisely

    INPieman · 05/07/2017 at 18:57

    If fear if you get rid of rocky he will drop a monster on you & leave you in the foetal position. I'm going to suck it up as well & back him in

DacZawson · 05/07/2017 at 18:53

Personally I see Rocky as a decent option this week at his price. Back to full fitness you'd assume after 27 disposals last week, efficiency was just super poor. I'm very likely to bring him in.

Thoughts community?

    Defying_Madness · 05/07/2017 at 18:55

    I am bringing in Gawn or Rocky this week for Witts or Parsons. Could just wait a week and do them both next week. Rocky should finish the season strong

      NM94 · 07/07/2017 at 18:36

      Would you trade in Gawn for Nank?? tossing up this decision

    Swans2012 · 05/07/2017 at 18:55

    Give him another week I reckon, b/e 130 something, is a bargain if over his shoulder troubles but it's a big if

    Creek465 · 07/07/2017 at 09:38

    I looked at rocky and murphy both cheap, but chosen neale over his 80k more. Thoughts? (Fyfe replacement)

CJay · 05/07/2017 at 18:58

Hodor for Sandi to walk out and the big bearded bastard to walk in.
Cost a tad more in the exchange than i was hoping for but still a good bargain for a very good ruck-man.

Rick Grimes · 05/07/2017 at 19:02

Cheers Lek, nice work on the podcast too. Can you see Cripps pumping out similar scores to Dusty from here on out? $60k saving to be had.

    SC Connoisseur · 05/07/2017 at 19:10

    P Cripps:
    Avg VS Melb since 2015: 131 from 3 (low of 109 and a high of 153, 2/3 120+)
    2016 Post Bye Avg: 114.8 from 10 (low of 69 and a high of 153, 2/10 below 100, 4/10 120+)
    2017 Post Bye Avg: 111 from 4 (low of 70 and a high of 134, 1/4 below 100, 2/4 120+)

      INPieman · 05/07/2017 at 19:24

      Are you related to Higgo connoisseur?

        Don't Blush Baby · 05/07/2017 at 19:56

        Paralysis by Analysis – all very good work but sometimes you just have to go with your gut me thinks

      Nick · 06/07/2017 at 10:11

      Cripps will finish off the year very strong. If you don't have in team, would consider it. I got him about a month ago and haven't looked back.

BlueNath · 05/07/2017 at 19:53

I'm a big avocado for brining in Rocky and playing him off the bench as an M9 and looping him. But I'm waiting another week to see what he does… could get cheaper yet. You just know he'll pump out some 150+ scores at some stage in the run home

    Rick Grimes · 06/07/2017 at 06:14

    Sounds like a good plan. Might copy you

    Beezneez · 06/07/2017 at 16:23

    You shouldn't demean yourself by calling yourself an avocado.

The black rat · 05/07/2017 at 20:01

Sandi to Gawn and will wait a week and keep Fyfe and will weigh up next week whether I oust Fyfe for Rocky. I hope I don't have to despite having plenty of trades.

Jim_bob321 · 05/07/2017 at 20:10

Hey community need ur great advice..
Which options should i go with
Option 1:
Sandi – Darcy
SPP/Scooter (If scooter is named SPP is out) – either Neale or Titchell
Option 2:
Sandi – Darcy
Via DPP, SPP/Scooter (If scooter is named SPP is out) – Buddy or Ryder.
Thinking Option 2 so i can get Jelwood once his price has gone down.
What do u think community?

    Hawks · 05/07/2017 at 20:41

    Option 2 – Buddy to come home strong, and Jelwood next week.

      BlueNath · 05/07/2017 at 20:44

      Ryder will come home strong too! Also… Jelwood in two weeks!

MTUK · 05/07/2017 at 20:11

Berry to Witherden nets me £200k this week for some final tweaks.

Leaves me 7 trades.

Shaw, Fyfe and Higgins in the sights.

Thinking I'll hold a week further for top defenders to drop – Roberton or Laird potentially.
Higgins into Kennedy looks strong in a weeks time too with his B/E. (Yeo, Franklin, Dahl, Nank, and Greene covered by Greenwood currently.)
So, do I take Fyfe out this week for Neale, Hanners or Parker or wait to see if Rocky sparks? Got Scooter sat at M9, so happy with bench cover if he's fit. Could move him to Joel in a couple of weeks.

That'd ultimately leave 4 trades to cover the run from Week 18 to close, which I hope is sufficient.

    Locked and Loaded · 06/07/2017 at 23:35

    4 trades left is minimal assuming you're going for private league

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:42

    200,000 pounds is pretty good, what does that convert to in Australian Dollars?

Captain Risky · 05/07/2017 at 20:13

Thanks Lekdog, you did a great job firing up Nank last week. I'm hoping for the same with Rocky!

If that works, I'll be sending you a weekly list as I have a few spuds!

    INPieman · 05/07/2017 at 20:47

    Was hoping Lynch would be in red

      Captain Risky · 05/07/2017 at 21:36

      You think he needs another whack?

      Lets line them up…. Laird, Pendles, 3 x Bulldogs..

      Maybe we could give Ty and Jake a call??

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 14:11

        Add Adams to that list …

JeanGeni · 05/07/2017 at 20:25

I need help community. I brought in Zac Williams round 12 and has done nothing. Now he's predicted to drop $50k if he plays this week. Do I trade or hold?

    Captain Risky · 05/07/2017 at 21:33

    Bad timing! 2 dud scores, a bye and a week (or 2) missed to injury!

    He's likely to be out again this week from what i read, although he is close, so will probably be back rd 17.

    He will lose a bit, but probably not 50K, depends how well he scores. I'm keeping him. He has been pretty consistent all year and uses the ball well. A nice POD and I'm not overloaded with trades at this stage of the season..

      JeanGeni · 07/07/2017 at 06:46

      Thanks for the advice Captain Risky. I'm going to hold. Pretty sure I'll be greatfull of the extra trade at the end of season.

Darcy · 05/07/2017 at 20:33

Do you reckon I bring Dusty in for Fyfe or hold with Fyfe. I have 6 trades

    Hawks · 05/07/2017 at 20:44

    Bring in Dusty, Fyfe struggling.

      Darcy · 05/07/2017 at 20:47


        Derek · 05/07/2017 at 21:11

        Fyfe will come good. If he is over his injury.

          Darcy · 05/07/2017 at 21:17

          Do you reckon hold onto Fyfe then

            BlueNath · 05/07/2017 at 21:20

            I don't think anyone could confidently suggest Fyfe is going to suddenly start pumping out 100+ scores. Dusty will bring you instant gratification

            Pete · 05/07/2017 at 21:48

            Fyfes average of 88 since Round 5 not good enough for an on field mid. I'd move him on.

              Nick · 06/07/2017 at 10:12

              Would hold for a few weeks. His price won't go down to much, if he doesn't improve swap for jelwood in a few weeks time

                Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:33

                That's what a wise man would do.

                Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:33

                Or lady.

    Leeds17 · 05/07/2017 at 21:54

    Fyfe played 97% TOG which is massive, despite another poor score I see that TOG as a positive I think he can get fit quickly, I'm more worried about a lack of Sandi & playing forward,

    Jake.B · 05/07/2017 at 22:11

    Hold onto fyfe, wait 2 weeks or potentionally 3 and swap him for jselwood

BlueNath · 05/07/2017 at 20:47

Wait another week Tommo. It's unlikely he'll go up in price so it's another week to sit back and watch before using a trade on a guy that might not be physically right

Ado Martinez · 05/07/2017 at 20:48

Who should i bring gawn in for

    Darcy · 05/07/2017 at 20:50

    Who are your ruckman?

    Derek · 05/07/2017 at 21:13

    If you still have Lobbe, I'd get rid of him first

    Finnius123 · 05/07/2017 at 22:26

    Kind of hard to say when we don't know who is in your team

    Ja191 · 05/07/2017 at 22:54

    in for tyrone mate, hear he's been arrested

    Russty_ · 05/07/2017 at 23:47

    I'd definitely get rid of one of those guys in your team that you don't want anymore, for Gawn πŸ™‚

    Lewis · 06/07/2017 at 11:15

    It'd help if we knew who your ruckman were you spud

      Ado Martinez · 07/07/2017 at 13:08

      fwark up you fwarken shiet cuuuntsssss

CJay · 05/07/2017 at 20:52

First year I haven't had him.
Have been waiting to fill my last midfield spot with rocky.. but…. just maybe have to accept that Dusty is better option and pay the $'s.
Can't knock you for going Rocky as if he comes good with that high ceiling , happy days.

Top Gun · 05/07/2017 at 21:33

Ali Fahour was suspended for 14 weeks and has resigned from his role of Diversity Manager.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2017 at 21:42

    Unlucky………Fair penalty for that thug. Did 'Basher" Houli support him?

    Surely not……..Please tell me I am wrong!

      Russty_ · 05/07/2017 at 23:42

      Yep..gave him a glowing reference , " he's a man of the highest character"…lol, yeah right.

    Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 12:43

    Turnbull should have vouched for him and he might have received 10 matches.

Finnius123 · 05/07/2017 at 22:35

Cripps, titch or Neale?

    Lewi · 06/07/2017 at 00:43


    jez_m · 06/07/2017 at 10:44

    For consistency, Mitchell. For ceiling, Cripps.

      Locked and Loaded · 06/07/2017 at 23:38


Joe · 05/07/2017 at 23:08

9 trades $115k
DEF: Docherty Laird Rance Lloyd Shaw Hibberd (Newman Ryan)
MID: Danger Mitchell Bont Pendles JPK Wines Treloar Fyfe (Witherden Cousins Brown)
RUC: Grundy Nank (Strandica)
FWD: Yeo Macrae Dahl Lynch Heeney Greenwood (Parsons Eddy)

I'd like to trade Gawn in for a fwd rookie so I can shift Nank fwd but I don't have $$, and Greenwood hasn't reached his highest price.
Also looking at Fyfe and Shaw as potential trades, but they aren't of priority compared to getting full premo first.
Any thoughts on potential trades?

    Russty_ · 05/07/2017 at 23:40

    Giday Joe, Newman on the bench seems like a waste of money, why don't you trade Shaw out for the cash to get rid of Eddy for Gawn.

      Joe · 07/07/2017 at 15:04

      Sounds great Rusty never thought of that, however with Eddy now playing would it be better to go Parsons to Gawn so I have more $$ in the bank?

    Moustachio · 07/07/2017 at 09:12

    Chop Newman and/or Greenwood for cash.

    Get Gawn and some fwd premo.

BigBuggars · 06/07/2017 at 00:07

Only 6 trades, $56K, need to ug Sandi, will cost me two trades to get Ryder, Max or Kruze this week. Or could move Nank to ruck and bring in Buddy, Jezza or JJK using only 1 trade. Or could take punt on Darcy and if he stinks it up move him out next week for Ryder or Gawn. I only need Darcy to go up by a differential of $30K over Ryder or Gawn to enable ug to them next week. As I don't have a coin with enough sides, I'd appreciate the community's thoughts.

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 05:38

    Don't trade Nank. Keep him as ruck cover… you'll need it with little trades left. Use the two trades and get Gawn… it's worth it

Lewi · 06/07/2017 at 00:44

Sounds elite

dSaSPatSfcB · 06/07/2017 at 06:12

Got 8 trades left do I use 2 trades this week on Big Max and Witherden or be conservative and use just the one on Stef Martin?

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 06/07/2017 at 09:34

    8 is an alright amount. do it

    jez_m · 06/07/2017 at 10:45

    I'd pull the trigger on Gawn and Witherden.

Belly up · 06/07/2017 at 08:08

I could really use some advice to restore balance in my team:

laird, Shaw, hibberd, Newman, Lloyd, tuohy (Ryan, junker)
Dusty, danger, jelwood, ablett, Pendles, kennedy, fyfe (greenwood, cousins, fisher)
Witts, bellchambers (strnadica)
Franklin, Dalhouse, macrae, yeo, Heeney, nank (Greene, parsons).

Bellchambers was a bit of mistake but fixed a short term problem for Sandi and did alright till last week.

Im thinking witherden for the swing and Gawn, but a fisher and chambers trade leaves me $2k short (damn)

Your advice?

    Keenbutclueless · 06/07/2017 at 08:58

    Trade Parsons and Bellchambers for Witherden and Gawn.

    PS. You are only showing 7 mids. I am assuming your 8th mid is also premo

Rivo · 06/07/2017 at 08:21

Good stuff Lekdog! And well done on the podcast too.

How much will Jelwood be next week or 2? Will he drop to around $440k? Trying to work out how much cash is needed to get him in as my last premo after getting Gawn this week.

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2017 at 09:41

    Based on him hitting his 104 average tooserious has him dropping to 473k after R17. Has the Lions this week, three game average of 141

      Beady Eye · 06/07/2017 at 16:12

      That average includes his 3 before being knocked out.

      Remove that and his average is 112. If he scores like that he'll bottom out around $481K post-round 17.

        Rivo · 06/07/2017 at 16:53

        Thanks BE. He may not get selected this week which may mean another weeks waiting.

neil demons delight · 06/07/2017 at 08:53

Witherden seems to be the flavour of the month but not me only because i have hibbo and berry.. Darcy is a different case .Looks to have good JS and ready made.He could make some serious money if you take a risk

    The black rat · 06/07/2017 at 09:52

    Fair enough too Neil. I took a risk and got Witherdon last week by trading out Barratt which allowed me to get Zerrett and allowing me to get Gawn this week.

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 06/07/2017 at 09:34

I'll be in the wilderness likely without reception this weekend. just need to set and forget with the C on Danger, right?

    INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 10:37

    If you've only got the choice of 1 then absolutely

      KrazeeEyezK1lla · 06/07/2017 at 13:08

      lock it in Eddie

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 14:04

    Que Duelling banjos?

    If history is anything to go by won't need anyone else.

Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 10:25

Who do u guys believe will have a better end to the season
Ryder or Buddy?
Cheers community

    Nathan · 06/07/2017 at 10:35

    Depends on structure I think. If you can use Ryder in a ruck loophole, that could prove handy on the run home with limited trades. I think for pure scoring it would have to be Buddy.

      Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 10:36

      For forward line btw
      Rucks consist of Nank, Martin

        Nathan · 06/07/2017 at 11:17

        I'd be going Ryder for the dpp link myself. Both should average 95+ from here.

          Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 11:23

          What do u reckon, field Wallis or Greenwood as i cannot loophole

            Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 11:32


              Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 11:35

              Really? I was thinking Greenwood tbh.
              Why do u believe Wallis will score more?

                SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2017 at 11:40

                Back your gut, JB

Nathan · 06/07/2017 at 10:32

Looking to trade J.Stewart to Witherden, M.Wallis to Gawn. Leaves me with 1 upgrade (Greenwood) who I'm happy to let fatten a bit more on field. $220k in kitty to upgrade but with only 4 trades left. Enough at this stage community?

    Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 11:32

    I would trade Greenwood before Wallis.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:31

    Wallis you should keep you reap what you sow.

andy · 06/07/2017 at 11:37

WIth 10 trades left and a few under performing premos (Prid/Fyfe). Am I crazy in considering trading Jelwood to a Parker/Cripps or the like and trading him back in for Priddis/Fyfe in a couple weeks time? Risk is Jelwood goes massive this week against the Lions which is a fairly significant possibility. If he averages ~100 over the next 2 weeks he'd be dropping to sub $500k

Can do that as well as upgrade Sandi to Gawn this week. Went early on Witherden last week

    ProTravo · 06/07/2017 at 11:52

    A sound plan.

Dice · 06/07/2017 at 11:42

Who is a more important trade in this week, Gawn or Franklin?
Very bloody low on trades, almost in the negatives.
Gawn was always going to be traded in this week however he is up against Kruezer and Buddy plays GC @ SCG.

    ProTravo · 06/07/2017 at 11:52

    Gawn will be around the same price next week, Franklin should go up a heap in price.

James · 06/07/2017 at 12:06

Hey guys need help with my trades this week, don't know what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated πŸ™‚ 10 trades left $254k on the side.

DEF: Doc, Simpson, Laird, Adams, Newman, Shaw (Ryan, Witherden)

MID: Danger, Merrett, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Jelwood, Bont, Fyfe (Bolton, Lloyd, Cousins)

RUCK: Grundy, Nank (English)

FWD: Heeney, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Greenwood, Stewart (Strnadica, Parsons)


    GloryDays90 · 06/07/2017 at 12:15

    Trade Stewart or Parsons, then swing Nank Fwd.
    Bring in Gawn.
    Then look to move Shaw as he is stuffed

      James · 06/07/2017 at 12:28

      Should I get rid of shaw first or get Gawn in first

        Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 13:33

        I'd go Stewart to Gawn, swing Nank forward, and Shaw for someone in form, and be prepared to swing Greenwood into the middle to cover in case Jelwood doesn't get up and then you'd have to play Parsons onfield.

        GloryDays90 · 06/07/2017 at 13:57

        Do what Russty said

    Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 16:40

    Stewart to Yeo

SC Connoisseur · 06/07/2017 at 12:07

J Selwood:

Avg VS Bris since 2009: 130.69 from 13 (low of 78 and a high of 176, 2/13 below 100, 9/13 120+, 5/13 140+, 3/13 170+)
2016 Night Avg: 117.1 from 10 (low of 69 and a high of 144, 2/10 below 100, 6/10 120+)
2017 Night Avg: 109.5 from 6 (low of 73 and a high of 151, 3/6 below 100, 3/6 120+)
2017 Avg in Wins: 128.75 from 8 (low of 106 and a high of 154, 6/8 120+)
2017 Avg in Losses: 79.75 from 4 (low of 73 and a high of 95, 4/4 below 100)

    Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 12:43

    Whatever you say Connoisseur but I am never putting the C on Selwood over Danger ever ever again

      Borko · 06/07/2017 at 13:04

      I think we all learn that lesson … I missed his 220+ score last year by putting the VC on Selwood. I think he still scored about 140 but that one hurt for a while!

    hedski · 06/07/2017 at 12:45

    Just read he's no certainty to play this week either, hope I'm wrong.

      INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 13:12

      Heard that on the radio earlier Hedski. Hope he does play. He feasts on Lions

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 14:06

        I heard he was catching some Rays and building sandcastles.

        So good to go..

          INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 14:18

          Surfing with Connor Blakely?

DDawg · 06/07/2017 at 13:05

Thinking of bringing in either 2 of Darcy, Cripps and Witherdan.

Planning to trade out Daniel Lloyd, J Cousins or Sandliands.

Which 2 should I focus on?

I want both Witherdan and Darcy because they are on the bubble. Cripps also looking at a juicy price rise.

Can swing either Ryder or Nank into Ruck 2. Stefan as R1.

8 trades left. Money no issue.

Hrmm or should I just go Sandilands straight to Gawn?

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:29

    Darcy is a waste of time you should be going full premo right now.

      DDawg · 06/07/2017 at 18:04

      Even if I can swing Nank or Ryder to R2? Which means then extra cash from Sandliands to Darcy that I can use to upgrade Shaw/Fyfe/Scooter?

      Or I could use extra cash to upgrade to a premium forward since I would have moved Nank or Ryder to ruck? E.v upgrade Greenwood, Bolton or Lynch?

Rachael · 06/07/2017 at 13:06

I have Goldy and had intended to trade for Gawn this week.. Even though Gawn price looks inviting now Goldy rucking against a no Sandi Freo in Tassie is inviting for one more from Goldy…Any thoughts appreciated

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 13:20

    I wouldn't be trading Goldy at all unless he's injured.

      The black rat · 06/07/2017 at 13:57

      I concur.

        Dave · 06/07/2017 at 14:57

        Trade goldy next week

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:29

    Don't trade until Gawn shows he's scoring big. This year has shown us not to just get in a player due to their name.

    Beady Eye · 06/07/2017 at 16:14

    The North-Freo game is at Etihad.

Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 13:13

Bad news for everyone.
'GEELONG is no clearer about the return of captain Joel Selwood, who remains uncertain to play in the Cats' clash with the Brisbane Lions on Saturday night as he recovers from concussion.' From the AFL website

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 13:26

    Bugger!…must've been a hard hit, I guess we'll know tonight.

    INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 13:31

    I'm sure they will name him but he will be tested 24 hours before the game. Same as last week

    The black rat · 06/07/2017 at 13:56

    Scott playing funny games. He will play.

    iLoveNMFC · 06/07/2017 at 14:21

    The Geelong Advertiser just said that he's pretty much certain to play… the Gods just keep messing with us…

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:35

    I hope he plays so he can start plummeting in cost.

Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 13:19

Witherden or Greenwood onfield this week or flip a coin?

    Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 13:22

    Greenwood I reckon is more proven and has shown to have a higher ceiling

      Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 13:25

      Cheers mate, might be able to loophole him if Cousins doesn't play also.

Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 13:28

Wallis or Greenwood onfield or flip a coin again?

    Stefan Valensisi · 06/07/2017 at 15:05


    THE PACKAGE · 06/07/2017 at 15:36


Mike · 06/07/2017 at 13:49

Can Darcy (freo) play out the year with a 90/95 ave

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 15:27

    Doubt it, only scored 50 SC with 40 hitouts vs the cats. He's only 19 years old isn't he?

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2017 at 15:31

    That's the 64k question, huh. I think so. Only two games so far but gets plenty of touches for a ruck. Will be interesting this week against Goldy as to whether he can dominate the hitouts.

SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2017 at 15:36

Does it ever go to plan? Fingers crossed for you, Rivo!

matthewspangher · 06/07/2017 at 15:48

full premo team complete with 6 trades, cant decide whether or not to trade grundy to gawn, seems reasonable but could come back to bite me later in the season, thoughts? cheers community

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 16:20

    Yeah I'm thinking, the way this year's gone you might need every one of those 6 trades just to make it through to your League grand final, or at least wait one more week on Gawn.

      matthewspangher · 06/07/2017 at 18:36

      cheers, just checked gawns breakevn and i thought it was lower, ill wait

    Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 16:41

    I would wait

Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 16:06

Danger's wife has had their baby, a little lad named George, so at least he won't be leaving half way through the game πŸ™‚

    INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 16:07

    Let's hope he celebrates & goes ape shit

      hedski · 06/07/2017 at 16:31

      Fug yeah, now he needs to play another however many games required in the hoops so we get the father/son before the crows.

    Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 16:44

    Does that mean it becomes Dangerwoodwoodbabydanger?

      Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 16:47

      Lol, or Dangerousgeorgewood

Adsy · 06/07/2017 at 16:23

9 trades remaining, dilemma this week.

Have Kreuz and Nank as R1 & R2. Ryder in the forward line. What should I do this week:
1. Trade Nank for Gawn
2. Trade one of my fwds (Currently Yeo, Macrae, Dahl, Franklin, Ryder, Heeney), move Nank fwd and trade in Gawn
3. Hold for a week hoping Gawn doesn't go bananas – current BE 95) and look at trade next week.

I feel I'll be missing out in the run home without Gawn. Would only cost one trade. My only other current concern in H.Shaw in the backline. I could mess with my current nice DPP setup (Witherden, H.Greenwood etc) to swap Shaw to Gawn but I feel that its more important to keep that. Option 1 would have been my default until Nank's 108 last week and coming up against the Saints at Etihad this Saturday night which I see another 100 looming. Feeling Option 3 with a view to pulling Option 1 next week. Thoughts?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 16:26

    Option 3 sounds good, if Nank stinks it up again this week, easy decision next week.

    Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 17:04

    Nank should do well against Longer

    Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:43

    I would hold

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:12


Joshua · 06/07/2017 at 17:30

Trade Scharenberg to Witherden so I can loophole him and Shaw or go Scooter to Witherden for dat cash money? Have Hibberd in mids if it makes a difference. Only looking at trading Greenwood to Selwood and MAYBE Nank to Gawn next week so will have sufficient cash for trades either way. 6 trades left after I hit the trigger, thoughts?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:25

    Scooter's gotta go, he's broken.

Don't Blush Baby · 06/07/2017 at 18:28

Greenwood out rumour ?

    Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 18:32

    Yeah he is out

Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 18:29

Ablett is injured again

    Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:42

    He's ancient of course he's prone to injury. (Ok 33 isn't that old,)

iLoveNMFC · 06/07/2017 at 18:31

Now that Greenwood is out, need to hold Parsons to cover. To afford Gawn, should I trade Bolton or Schaz to Witherden?

BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 18:33

Greenwood OUT!!

Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 18:35

Greenwood out!

Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 18:35

Greenwood out makes my decision easier to field Wallis

Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 18:36

Vickery emerg in case the police need him. Lol

    numb nut · 06/07/2017 at 20:44

    Thinking of bringing in "push up" to enforce the role?

Joshuq · 06/07/2017 at 18:36

Greenwood out… Hello Donut

manolaki · 06/07/2017 at 18:37

No Scooter
And Beams back lol

    JEL · 06/07/2017 at 18:52

    WTF – on the AFL injury list, Beams is still showing as 2-3 weeks.
    Maybe they've found a stunt double.

      KrazeeEyezK1lla · 06/07/2017 at 19:05

      Maybe Claye grew a little and got way better at footy

    The black rat · 06/07/2017 at 19:38

    Watch out for a late withdrawal.

Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 18:38

Ablett out will hurt some people. Preuss in is an interesting one. Too late dammit!

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 19:43

    Yep Ablett is annoying me now.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:09

    Hope Goldy doesnt get too affected or it could force my hand on goldy to Gawn. Which would mean keeping witts at R2, who wouldve thought at the start of the season.

      Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:26

      Betcha Preuss will be emergency yet again.

        Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 22:39

        With Waite out I'm thinking Preuss might actually play

GloryDays90 · 06/07/2017 at 18:44

F#ck you Adelaide for resting Greenwood! Why rest a guy who is dominating….

    Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 18:47

    Is this Newman all over again?

    savemebarry1 · 06/07/2017 at 19:02

    Pyke's making an excuse I assure you. When they had a bye just 2 rounds ago, and even when they do play, Greenwood gets ~68% TOG every game there has to be something fishy going on. Surely he doesn't need resting

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:07

      Yep its a conspiracy lol

    Rubber · 06/07/2017 at 19:38

    Greenwood is playing well but hasn't played much AFL and obviously he needs a rest. The Adelaide chiefs have a good handle on things. He will return better for the break. Your SC team must have issues if you are so upset about a F6-7 or M9

      GloryDays90 · 06/07/2017 at 19:48

      One im an Adelaide supporter and think we need him this week. Two my team is fine, just want him to keep playing and earning so i can upgrade him to Jelwood or someone better. Three i wanted him as my cover for Greene this week, now im stuck with Parsons.

        Fosterboy · 06/07/2017 at 21:17

        You are a selfish Crow supporter. The club is more important than your SC team

          GloryDays90 · 06/07/2017 at 21:28

          In what way am i selfish for wanting a player who is in form playing in a key game this weekend? I think you are just an idiot and a troll mate.

          dSaSPatSfcB · 06/07/2017 at 23:41

          Rubbish his SC team is HIS Club. It's more important he's the only one who barracks for it.

        Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:29

        Understand your frustration mate, but maybe it's just so Thompson can have his first run and then Greenwood plays the rest of the year…I hope so anyway πŸ™‚

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:06


      Bells · 06/07/2017 at 21:32

      What? You mean like Scooter, GAJ and Spudface Toby Greene all missing too?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:40

    It is just a resting. He can have a break for working hard and then continue his output.
    Young players are more prone to injury because their bodies haven't adapted much to the workload

      Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 19:47

      Isn't he 26-27 years old?

        Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:06

        But played basketball for a long time, mightve needed to rest to heal up some knocks and bruising? Who knows but it seems legit nothing odd.

      Top Gun · 06/07/2017 at 22:40

      Weren't they just resting Bolton too….hmmm

        Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:59

        Bolt isnt part of a finals side imo

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 06/07/2017 at 18:52

Take a punt on fielding Deluca from Freo, or go with old reliable 40 Points Parsons?

    Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 19:07

    Take Parsons maybe they're versing Brisbane, anything can happen

LetsGo · 06/07/2017 at 19:00

This week was supposed to be fisher to witherden and parsons to buddy but with greenwood being out I'll have to cop a donut. Is it worth trading greenwood to buddy and leaving parsons at f6 for a while in order to avoid a donut for one round?

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 20:17

    I think you would be mad to trade Greenwood. He has got a lot of cash to generate still. I know you don't want to cop a donut, so I guess you need to make a tough decision. Are you sure you can't trade another player (even in defense) for Witherden to get you some more $ to upgrade for forward cover?

Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 19:05

Anyone know the extent of Scooter's injury?

    B T · 06/07/2017 at 20:15

    They probably won't play him until he is 150%.

    They will want him for finals so I can't see them bringing him back prematurely.

    Last time they brought him in after he had a hamstring scare he went down injured. Not worth the risk.

      BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 20:21

      Will Scooter ever be 150%. But agree, Cats need him fit for finals

        Pman · 06/07/2017 at 21:05

        I'm holding him until his brothers price drops under $450K in 2 weeks time, then straight swap and final M8 sorted.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:31

    I wouldn't count on seeing him again..I'm ditching him this week, last time he got injured he was out for 2 years.

hedski · 06/07/2017 at 19:09

Greenwood out could work well for head to heads since he's on my bench now, lottsa peeps have shit cover.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:38

    I have no cover for Midfield but cover for every other position

Jim_bob321 · 06/07/2017 at 19:14

Community who would u trade out at this point.
SPP or Scooter
Thinking Scooter just due to the extent of his injury
What does the community think?

    hedski · 06/07/2017 at 19:35

    Yeah do it, at least SPP is on the park. I traded Scooter to Zerrett last week, SPP to Yeo this week.

BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:15

Thompson IN could be good for Sloane's scoring! At least I hope this to be true

    whatyousmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:00

    Yeah thinking that, have him vice this week.

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:17

      I agree with myself

        Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:31


    Cogla13 · 07/07/2017 at 08:58

    Is Thomson going to stop other teams tagging Sloan? Don't think so.

Nick · 06/07/2017 at 19:24

Am I better off trading out Greenwood or Gaz this week?

    Shlok · 06/07/2017 at 19:32

    Hard to say without looking at your team

    Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:37

    If you're at full keeper then kick Gaz but if you have 2 or more spots until you make it then Greeny

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 19:37

    Neither. You must have someone else?

      BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:40

      Agree with Derek. Hold! Greenwood is still yet to make big coin and Ablett could win you the premiership

      whatyousmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:00


      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:03

      Agree (logged in lol)

James · 06/07/2017 at 19:26

Already done 1 trade for this week and that was James Stewart for Gawn. I'm left with 9 trades and $34k. Any suggestions for a second trade?

DEF: Doc, Simpson, Laird, Adams, Newman, Shaw (Ryan, Witherden)

MID: Danger, Merrett, Zorko, Treloar, JPK, Jelwood, Bont, Fyfe (Bolton, Lloyd, Cousins)

RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (English)

FWD: Heeney, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Greenwood, Nank (Strnadica, Parsons)


    whatyousmokin · 06/07/2017 at 19:59

    Do you feel you have to do a second trade?

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 20:07

    Parsons is not exactly great cover for Greenwood being out, but 34k means you don't have much choice (not enough to upgrade). So I'd hold off on a second trade and back in Parsons

Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 19:30

Greenwood out has ruined my trade plans for this week. Going Berry to Witherden, however this would force me to field him resulting in me losing ground compared to the other full premo teams. Thinking of just pulling the trigger and going Parsons to Rocky instead of waiting a week like I had planned to originally. Got 76k in the bank and 7 trades left.
Any trade suggestions are welcome

Doc, Adams, Laird
Rance, Lloyd, Hibberd(Dees)
(Ryan, Scharenberg)

Danger, Titch, Zerret, Pendles,
JPK, Hanners, Treloar, Greenwood
(Junker, Berry, Bolton)

Kreuzer, Witts

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

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:59

    Witherden will score more than Berry and that's all you have as cover currently. Plus, Witherden is producing Greenwood type output anyway. I'd back Witherden in personally and hold your other trades until you see the changing landscape of next week

      Swans2012 · 06/07/2017 at 20:29


        Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 21:00

        Ok thanks for the advice, I think I will just bring in Witherden and look at Jelwood or Rocky next week

Tyruddanaut · 06/07/2017 at 19:36

I'm praying that Gawn gets over 54 this week so it's easier to pick between him and Selwood by elimination

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:40

    You could put your house on it

Derek · 06/07/2017 at 19:40

You would think one out of Bolton, Pickett or Greenwood would get a game this week.

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:41

    Well Greenwood, yes.

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:03


    INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 19:50

    Nothing is predictable in AFL Derek

Lionize · 06/07/2017 at 19:41

With Gazza out again, the Cats won't want him and GCS will be stuck with him.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:03

    Cats would only want him dirt cheap on a one year contract anyway.

INPieman · 06/07/2017 at 19:47

Greenwood "Rested" but named as an E. Is that a polite way of saying he didn't deserve to be dropped but we did it anyway. Crap

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 19:54

    Kinda. It's a good thing… proves it's a genuine resting (as will play if needed in the event an injury/illness occurs to a similar player). So expect him straight back in next week

      Pman · 06/07/2017 at 20:48

      Good point…I reckon he's a monty to be playing next week, it will be interesting to see how many trade him though.

        Lionize · 06/07/2017 at 21:01

        Stupid if they do.

      Cogla13 · 07/07/2017 at 08:46

      Richmond rested Bolton last week and named him as an emergency. He is still an emergency this week. Wouldn't count on him being straight back in.

    Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 21:00

    Well Ben Mcniece was 'rested' after rd 6 and hasn't got a look in since. Same with Bolton last round, he was 'managed', and then hasn't been picked this week either.

    The 'rested' needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, very possibly could not be recalled next week.

      Defying_Madness · 06/07/2017 at 21:05

      That on top of his poor TOG each week has me worried

      Roberto · 06/07/2017 at 21:15


      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:57

      They were average players though. Bolton had that amazing quarter the other week I guess…………

      INPieman · 07/07/2017 at 07:32

      Yeah Mcneice must have been pretty tired. Still resting!!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 21:04

    Funny thing he was listed on the footy show as "injured"

      BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 21:24

      Is the footy show still on air?

Choice · 06/07/2017 at 19:59

Beams?! wtf?! another wasted trade for a supposed month injury

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 20:09

    He is learning well off Rocky

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:15

    The truth is out the AFL is just cloning players now haha

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2017 at 21:42

    Should have used your trades by now….that way you wouldn't have traded him out….lols..sry… (couldn't believe eyes when saw the green light) (2 trades left since two weeks ago…)

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:21

    He'll probably be back out again in no time!

Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 20:13

Rocky I reckon Gaz wont go very big this weekend πŸ˜‰

    Tommo09 · 06/07/2017 at 21:20

    Haha I agree

      Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:23

      What was the question?…lol

        Tommo09 · 06/07/2017 at 22:11

        Rocky or Gaz?

          Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:23

          Rocky! haha, and you can only completely delete your comment if no one's replied to it.

            Tommo09 · 07/07/2017 at 08:36

            Yeah I thought no one had replied but I hadn't refreshed haha

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:22

    That's for sure lol

Mike · 06/07/2017 at 20:23

JJK out again

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:36

    And with calf/archilles problems, could break down anytime or not be seen for awhile yet.

neil demons delight · 06/07/2017 at 20:29

anyone know the J S of thomas

    numb nut · 06/07/2017 at 20:36

    Thomas is Jack Shi* ?

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:55


    B T · 06/07/2017 at 22:59

    Josh Thomas from the Pies?

    If so I think he should be good for the rest of the year.

    Up to half time he was one of our best but looked to run out of legs in the second half, considering he has missed 2 years of professional footy he should improve over the next few weeks while he is in the 1s.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:01

    Depends on if he's still into the drugs…lol, last played in 2014.

sam lowry · 06/07/2017 at 20:33

Community this round has thrown an absolute spanner in the works, tossing up a couple of options right now that id like some opinions on. Wanting to finnish inside the top 5% (currently top 7%) but also want to take home my league wins. Currently 7 trades
This round i will have greenwood and JJK as fwd doughnuts if i dont trade, with greenwood being my last upgrade till full premo. here are the options
1) Downgrade Cousins in the mid to witherden gives me a mid back swing with adams and gives me a decent rookie coverage in the mids, then B.eddy down to Darcy via nank swing. this will give me a full side and i can trade parsons and greenwood for MAX GAWN! next week my final upgrade of choice but will leave me with 3 trades.
2) Trade parsons to darcy via swing and upgrade greenwood to macrae finnishing my side leaving me full premo with 5 trades, but also 0 fwd rookie cover and only 7k on bank relying on my 5 trades if my fwds get injured
3) Downgrade only parsons to darcy via swing, field a 0 this week but it will allow me to get gawn instead of macrae, but also 0 fwd cover

option 1: giving me coverage a bit more cash and gawn (3 trades), option 2: finnishing team with macrae and no cash and poor coverage (5 trades) option 3: finnishing with gawn and no cash and poor coverage (5 trades)
Sorry its a bit of a read would love some thoughts on how important rookie coverage will be on the run home, and who the better upgrade is out of gawn/macrae! Thanks community

    Lionize · 06/07/2017 at 21:00

    Too long. Go your gut feel

    Bells · 06/07/2017 at 21:50

    1 for sure. Hold Darcy three weeks for the cash then trade. Maybe you could keep Greenwood then.

Good luck · 06/07/2017 at 20:41

Hi Community, would love your thoughts.

Adams, Laird, Hubbard, Tuohy, Newman, Shaw ( Ryan, Witherden )
Danger, Martin, Pendles, Kennedy, Bonts, Treloar, Fyfe, J. Lloyd. ( Scooter, Berry, T. Miles )
Grundy, Witts. ( Cameron )
Macrae, Dahl, Franklin, JJK, Nank, Higgins. ( Greenwood, Parsons )

I'm sitting around 6000 so only going for a couple of cash league wins, 240k in the pocket and with 8 trades available, already used 1 this round ( Witherden ).

Do I trade Shaw for Docherty or…
Trade Scooter to Rocky ( not sure I can trust him ), or wait for Jellwood next week?
Spend only 40k and trade Witts for Gawn or…..
Finally toss Higgins or JJK for Yeo?

Decisions, decisions…. enjoy the banter and everyone's thoughts on this site.
Cheers in advance for your thoughts.

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 20:51

    Who did you trade out for Witherden?

    Good luck · 06/07/2017 at 21:12

    T. Stewart

numb nut · 06/07/2017 at 20:41

Geez SAM…WOW…so many assumptions…. just say…forget Gawn and Macrae for a minute….now let me think

Finnius123 · 06/07/2017 at 20:54

Darcy and Cripps or Gawn and Fyfe

    Swans2012 · 06/07/2017 at 20:56

    Gawn and fyfe well and truly

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:53


    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 21:30

    That's a good question! I'll give my best guestimation of avg's from here on out:

    Darcy (90) + Cripps (115) = 205
    Gawn (115) + Fyfe (90) = 205

    I think it's a toss of the coin

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:52

    My averages estimations.

    Fyfe 90, Gawn 110.

    Darcy 75. Cripps 105.

Paul · 06/07/2017 at 20:55

Witherden, Hibberd, Parsons to replace Greenwood – Witherden a no-brainer?

    Swans2012 · 06/07/2017 at 20:55


    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 21:10

    Thats The Way I've Gone

Sammy · 06/07/2017 at 20:58

Don't replace him. He will be back round 17, unless you have 8+ trades or else it is a waste.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/07/2017 at 21:26

    Don't think replace is trade it is just putting him on the ground instead of greenwood. Well that's what it is in my case.

Shooter · 06/07/2017 at 21:21

Hey Pieman. Have a chat to Bucks will you please. Their season is (Probably) stuffed so why not play the two kids you recommended – Big Scharanberg and little Brown.

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 22:01

    Why isn't Schaz not playing?

      BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 22:04

      Schaz isn't isn't not playing

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 22:06

    Bucks has made some interesting (non) selection decisions this year

    INPieman · 07/07/2017 at 08:33

    Somehow he still thinks he can make finals Shooter. He's delusional. I'm sure Shaz & brown willl be back when the mathematical possibility is gone. Should be after this week

ben · 06/07/2017 at 21:24

how can riley f****** knight play over greenwood

    ben · 06/07/2017 at 21:24

    riley knight

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 21:48

    My assumption is Greenwood is more of a burst player and doesn't have the best endurance (yet). Would explain his low TOG % and why the club want him to have a rest. Got nothing to do with him not being as talented as Knight

      BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 21:52

      To clarify… Greenwood is going to push himself to his limits, and beyond. So if the club know his body can't handle repetitive loads they will reduce injury risk by managing his games/TOG. Expect him to have a big preseason and produce some big time SC output next year

        Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:49

        Logical. More fun just swearing about why he hasnt been named though.

        BockChoy · 06/07/2017 at 23:10

        Very good analysis – I think you are spot on!

Joshua · 06/07/2017 at 21:36

Witherden in for Scharenberg (def/MID swing)or Scooter (xtra cash)?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 21:41

    Scooter…not trustworthy of returning.

Jess · 06/07/2017 at 21:50

10 trades 50k
Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
Pendles, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Pepper (Berry, S Selwood, Cousins)
Sandi, Martin (Strnadica)
Dank, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Parsons (Eddy, Greenwood)
Sandi to Darcy or Gawn
Berry to Witherdon?
Best Option.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:00

    I would go Scooter to Witherden (keep Berry for now) and Sandi to Gawn.

      Jess · 07/07/2017 at 18:10

      Would scooter come back next week or time to part ways you reckon?

HarryO · 06/07/2017 at 21:50

how many trades has everyone got, players off premium and cash in bank?? want to get a feel of how im travelling…
i have 7 trades 545k in bank and probably 1 or 2 off premo. Scooter is my M8 and greenwood my F6

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:18

    I've got 7 left after doing 2 this week..and $217900 left. Probably 2 off premo also.

    jose · 06/07/2017 at 22:40

    7 trades, 120k in the bank. 'Full' premo with shaw and fyfe on field. Im planning upgrade shaw to a premo mid next week via swing – leaving me with 5 trades to handle the carnage that is the end of the season

    Locked and Loaded · 06/07/2017 at 23:46

    10 trades 120k in bank. 1 off full premo but keeping Newman as D6 (more than sound)

marc · 06/07/2017 at 21:53

Was originally thinking of moving on Fyfe this week but would I be better off trading Ablett?

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 21:56

    Hold Ablett! His ceiling is huge. Fyfe has only scored above 100pts once since rd 6. It's hard to see Fyfe turning it around. He is a bench player at best currently. So if you have the trades I'd upgrade Fyfe

      Derek · 06/07/2017 at 22:04

      Fyfe will finish strong. Looked like he is over his chest injury, he'll be ok. Gun.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:46

    Not sure which to trade, they are both screwed. Ablett body, Fyfe is just not SC relevant this year. Tired of waiting for him. Cant wait to ditch him for Selwood.

Derek · 06/07/2017 at 21:59

I'm getting Wingard to fill my last forward.

Already have MCRae, Dahlhaus, Buddy, Ryder, Nank. Greenwood will have to be my F7.

I am also thinking about Lambert. Any Richmond supporters can explain why he is scoring so well and it this likely to continue?

    Wingman · 06/07/2017 at 22:32

    No love for Yeo Derek?

      Derek · 06/07/2017 at 22:37

      cognative bias at play

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:37

    Giday Derek, are you short on cash? Wingard is a bit up and downy for mine, and Lambert is playing well at the moment but what happens when he reverts back to his usual self?

    Can you afford anyone better?
    If you're looking for a bargain basement option maybe Liam Jones could be your man…never thought I'd say that lol

      Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:44

      Lambert did the same thing the other year if I remember correctly. Was suddenly a 500k player and all the rage. Both players can be very mediocre that saying I traded Tom Lynch into my team.

        Derek · 06/07/2017 at 23:12

        Lynch is a key position. One of my rules, unless they are Buddy

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:39

    RDidnt wingard burn you the other year?

      Derek · 06/07/2017 at 23:10

      I started with him last year. Yep, thanks for reminding me.

      Low on trades. Only 7 left and can do Wingard/lambert with just one trade up from JStewart. Otherwise I trade out Berry, Greenwood, Shaz or Bolton to someone (already have Witherden) for extra cash.

      Don't mind the idea of a POD in forward line. Can't go any worse than the rest, but against key forwards!

      I doubt Cyril will be back soon

    BockChoy · 06/07/2017 at 23:13

    He's been given the role of tagger – he goes head to head with the best opposition midfielder but not as a hard tag. Even though he's a mature age, he's taken a few years to get his body and skills up to the mark. He's now a very solid B grade player (to use David Parkin's model).

      Derek · 06/07/2017 at 23:43

      Cheers. I don't think I've even noticed him

Nick · 06/07/2017 at 22:02

Tom Lynch (GC) or Ryder for F6?

    BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 22:08

    Ryder. Lots of portress games… will finish the year strong

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 22:37

    Ryder for sure. Unless Lobbe finds form and pushes him out

BlueNath · 06/07/2017 at 22:02

There sure are a lot of footy shows these days. But I'd love to see a fantasy footy TV show in a similar format to the front bar. Beers, a laugh, but with some serious SC strategy talks and Draftstar tips etc. a segment featuring Jock, Higgo and Crouching would be awesome too.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:11

    There used to be…The Supercoach Show, and Jock was on it regularly, but the buggers canned it.

      Derek · 06/07/2017 at 22:38

      First time I saw or even heard about Jock

        Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:42

        I was on Jock's site a couple of years before I even made a profile, loved the banter and expertise, advice etc helping me to pick a better starting team.
        Then I saw Jock on The Supercoach show which I think ran for 2 seasons on Foxtel, then unfortunately, they cancelled it.
        Jock was only ever on for 5 minutes or so but he was always hilarious.

Qwsa · 06/07/2017 at 22:06

Can't hold JJK any longer, only have 530k in the bank,should I trade in lachie Whitfield or Luke Parker on the basis of his form from last year?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:10

    Parker…all day long.

    Northerner · 07/07/2017 at 15:38

    He is very likely to be back after this week. You need to forget about the past. You would not waste a trade on Greene this week. JJK is no different. HOLD.

      Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:53

      5th straight game, that stuff can ruin a coach's season.

waynesworld · 06/07/2017 at 22:28

Ablett to cripps to me is a good trade.
Pendles to sloane is super risky but somethings not right with bucks and pendles
And very happy to see thompson back to assist freeing up sloane
im i wasting a trade on sloane ? Should i hold pendles?
Going for rank.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:33

    Pendles hasn't averaged less than 100 since 2008, with 5 of those seasons 118 or higher into the 120's, he never stays down for long and is still averaging 109.
    Even if he loses some money next week, Sloane still hasn't shown he can break a tag.

    I think you'd be nutty to trade Pendles out.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/07/2017 at 22:42

    When has it been right with Bucks?

    Anyway youre nuts trading Pendles for Sloane although please do so the rest of us can get his upcoming 150 sooner!

Chief · 06/07/2017 at 22:39

Who to start on field
Berry or Witherden?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:49

    Witherden, based on his stats so far, Berry can go ok, or low, but Witherden seems capable of more than that.

    B T · 06/07/2017 at 22:54


    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 23:03

    ill need one to sub for Gaz.

DEE · 06/07/2017 at 22:40

I have Sandi so need to trade.
6 left.
I have $60k.
Do i trade up to Ryder or Martin using 1 trade or trade cousins or myers to witherden and bring in GAWN using 2?
Team is pretty much complete with Nank, witts, newman on the ground.
Thinking of using 2 as witherden opens up a DPP swing.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 22:58

    Up to you but it's gonna be hard getting through 7 more rounds with 4 trades if you do 2.

    Myers is playing, Ryder has a 3 round average of 110…maybe you need to pass on Gawn and Witherden.

      DEE · 06/07/2017 at 23:08

      I have posted my team below to help. Got a bit of cover.
      Docherty, rance, adams, lloyd, jones, newman (hibberd, ryan)
      Dangerfield, pendlebury, kelly, JPK, sloane, bontempelli, zorko, neale (cousins, myers, greenwood)
      Sandilands, witts (cameron)
      Dahlhouse, maccrae, franklin, lynch, nankervis, wallis (bolton, parsons)

        Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:23

        I'd advise Ryder, or if you're feeling lucky , you could take the punt on Darcy for the big cash grab?

Dan · 06/07/2017 at 23:09

Was downgrading SPP to Witherden, which would put Witherden on bench and Greenwood onfield, but with greenwood out, should I still pull trigger and play Witherden on field?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:16

    Yeah for sure, based on what he's done, it's a good cash grab.

mark zuck · 06/07/2017 at 23:30

any good downgrades up forward this week

    Derek · 06/07/2017 at 23:46

    Did I see long get named?

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2017 at 00:04

    Maybe Buzza, has ruck/forward eligibility so could be handy if he keeps getting named.

      Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:50


    Northerner · 07/07/2017 at 15:35

    If you have Strnadica or Cameron as R3 I'm a fan of bringing in Darcy as R3 and swing your loophole forward.

    Darcy will be great ruck coverage for rest of season.

Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:40

For those considering sidewaysing it…consider this woeful story, lol

I traded Koby Stevens into my forward line as a pod in round 9 after scores of 107 and 97, he then proceeds to score me a 67 and a 103, ok, not too bad, then comes his bye and after that, he goes…55 and 58.

So, I'm thinking, ok he was a risk and now he's probably tired or just a spud so the next week I trade him out for Tom Lynch (Adelaide) based on his last 3 round average of 99.3 and being cheap at $440200 at round 14.

So the first week I have Lynch in my side, he is diagnosed with a meningitis disease where he could be out indefinitely.

Salt in the wound is, then Stevens goes bang bang and posts 97 and 106!….LOL

So, the moral of this rather long story is, don't sideways trade and be a silly bastard like me!…2 trades burned, lesson learned πŸ™‚

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:49

    Damn that is rough rusty. Lynch looked like good option.

The Replacements · 06/07/2017 at 23:44

10 trades left. 120k in the kitty and looking to move on Shaw or Fyfe. Full premier other than Greenwood who is looking likely to be a one trade move up to a premo forward in a few weeks time. Move on Shaw or Fyfe is the question?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2017 at 23:47

    Post your backline so we have a reference. Maybe your midfield too.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:48

    Ditch Shaw for T.Mac or Hibberd?

Locked and Loaded · 06/07/2017 at 23:59

Here you go

Doch, Laird, Adams, Loyd, Shaw, Newman

Danger, Jelwood, Pendles, Neale, Bont, Treloar, Dusty, Fyfe

    Locked and Loaded · 07/07/2017 at 00:01

    Also Witts to Gawn is another option but can wait on that to see Gawn return to form. Already traded Fisher to Witherden

ProTravo · 07/07/2017 at 09:02

Debating if burning a trade is worth avoiding a donut this week.
Yet to have a donut this year and I'm relatively well placed in overall rank, Damn you Greene and Greenwood!
Feel if I cop the 0 i'll slip back to far but don't have near enough trades to be burning them this time of year…

Big G · 07/07/2017 at 09:38

Who has Greenwood with no cover? what to do?

    ProTravo · 07/07/2017 at 10:19

    You tell me mate, looking at a donut.

    manolaki · 07/07/2017 at 11:27

    Is Greenwood out?

      Big G · 07/07/2017 at 14:54

      'rested' – can someone come up with something in 4 hours?

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:46

    At this stage of the season relying on a rookie that much is bad management. Bad baby.

Creek465 · 07/07/2017 at 09:43

I looked at rocky and murphy both cheap this week, but chosen neale over his 80k more. Thoughts? (Fyfe replacement)

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:05

    The better choice

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:45

    Reliable choice.

Creek465 · 07/07/2017 at 11:05

Will fyfe come good?????

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:05

    We can only hope

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:43


    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:44

    Trade to selwood in two weeks and possibly make cash not to mention points. If he cant prove hes not cooked by then……… long can we wait?

manolaki · 07/07/2017 at 11:32

Great I have Sandi Scooter Greene Greenwood and Bolton. I need to make about 4 trades this week to avoid a forward and ruck donut

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:05

    Sandi priority

      manolaki · 07/07/2017 at 17:22

      Yeh he is but only have 5 on field in forwards

manolaki · 07/07/2017 at 11:33

Are Schaz and Cousins ever going to play again

TyBickery · 07/07/2017 at 11:59

Loophole mayhem…if Perryman (def/mid) is only listed Emergency as def and no mid emergencies selected. If Jelwood doesn't play do we get Perryman's score? Cant swing to mids with Witherden already in Backline

    Seeker · 07/07/2017 at 15:03

    No Emergencies only cover the section they are in FWD, MID etc. even if they have DPP status

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:06

    Emergencies don't cover across different lines

Ado Martinez · 07/07/2017 at 13:10

thoughts on getting rid of heppell this week? Can afford anyone for him

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:06

    If no other issues and ample trades yeah

      Shooter · 07/07/2017 at 15:31

      I swapped him Zerrett last week and was not happy at half time but he came good. Bombers try very hard to get the ball yo Zerrett like GWS do with Josh Kelly.

Stupid Coach · 07/07/2017 at 13:41

Awesome work again Lek Dog and the community. I have 9 trades left but not much cash ($67k) in the bank. Team is as follows:
B – Doc, Laird, Hibberd (Melb), Lloyd, Shaw, Newman (Ryan, Scharenberg)
M – Danger, Zerrett, Pendles, Fyfe, Treloar, Adams, Ward, PP (Mountford, Bolton, Witherden)
R – Martin, Goldy (Strndica)
F- Dahl, Yeo, Lynch, Nank, Heeney, Greenwood (Parsons, D Cameron)
Initially thinking of swapping Greenwood (via DPP) with PP and upgrading PP to a mid/fwd or fwd. Put Witherden on the field in place of Greenwood (unless he is a late inclusion). However, don't have enough cash to get Macrae or Buddy so need to do a downgrade first -any ideas who I can bring in. Want to upgrade Greenwood to J Selwood next week.

Leaves me with 7 trades – worried that I won't have enough for finals.

Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:41

    Youd wanna wait two weeks on the selwood trade the 4 will be in the equation for two more, which is a blessing really as greenwood shouldve fattened by then.

    Think you need to hold and play parsons this week. I see a flaw in your planning having both strndica and cameron in your team, not sure why that is so.

      Stupid Coach · 07/07/2017 at 19:38

      Thanks Whatyasmokin. Definitely not my finest hour. Picked them based on their DPP status and that they were both going to play but that has never happened. What are your thoughts on trading Parsons to Thomas (Coll) and upgrade SPP to MacRae.

Big G · 07/07/2017 at 14:55

What is everyone doing about Greenwood?

    Seeker · 07/07/2017 at 15:04

    Holding, he'll be back next week. Might even be a late in tonight

    Flubber · 07/07/2017 at 15:06


    Northerner · 07/07/2017 at 15:08

    Keep him. Find another way to field full team this week. Keep as bench cover for rest of year or upgrade to another premium once he's gone up another $100k and create a mid/fwd swinging DPP M7 F7 to replace him.

    LEKD0G · 07/07/2017 at 15:11

    Hold, he'll either be a late in or back next week

    manolaki · 07/07/2017 at 17:21

    Definitely holding. But need to find a player to cover Greene Greenwood and Bolton

    Whatyasmokin · 07/07/2017 at 17:35

    -8 BE. All u need to know. If you must trade then do so, but finding another option is advisable.

Anyone considering Darcy as a Sandi replacement?

    If you need a cash cow then yes, dont expect 99 every week though. If low on trades and already knocking on F.Premos door then forget about it.

      I need the cash. Low on trades too.

      I have premium if you include Nank and Newman as Premium.

      Was thinking Sandi to Ryan and Berry to With.

      Means donut up forward bacause i have Greene Greenwood and Bolton out.

      No M/F swing in the middle
