PanicRoomRd18

Winter is coming.

No, I’m wrong. Winter is here. We’re deep in the howling depths that is winter, erasing all hope. This week was to be a counterpoint to last, discussing the successes; the good trades, the smart moves and, for this year especially, the significant non-selections we’ve made to make this year good.

But our hopes, dreams and – most importantly, trades are lying motionless in the snow as the wolves bear down on us.

It’s time to panic.

THE NEWS

Why, that’s a nice midfield you got there… it would be a shame if something were to… happen… to it, wouldn’t it?

We’ll start at the top. Scott Pendlebury has had surgery on his finger and will miss this week, most likely next week and potentially weeks after that. He’s gotta go.

Captaincy option of the century*, Patrick Dangerfield, will miss. He’s been named, he’ll miss. Listed as no more than 40% chance, the Cats won’t risk him as they gear up for a huge run at September.

Remember that time I heralded the death of Gary Ablett as a Supercoach option, and he came back a week later and scored 159? He’s got a hamstring niggle. Another one. Coinciding with an interstate trip. He’ll miss this week, maybe next week and I’d wager nearly every interstate trip on the run home. Bye, Gary.

Rory Sloane has been named. I still reckon he’ll miss because winter has come and hope is dead and if anything can go wrong this round IT WILL GO WRONG. Which is why I don’t trust Geelong for naming Scott Selwood.

Stephen Coniglio is back for GWS, which is good news for the 330 teams that have him, and the 5 teams who traded him in this week (WHO ARE YOU?! WHY?)

Forgotten midfielder Jack Trengove is back for Melbourne, and in other news forgotten midfielder Jack Trengove is still on Melbourne’s list.  

Moving along into the ruckline now, where everything looks lovel- oh wait no it’s bad and everything is on fire because Todd Goldstein has been dropped. Yes, Todd Goldstein, 2015’s best ruck by the length of the Flemington straight, is kaput. Splat. Gone. Dropped like a sack of potatoes. A truly Will Minson style fall from grace.

Into the backline where more things are on fire and screaming and burning and on fire, rookies Luke Ryan and Brennan Cox have been dropped. The Ramsay Bolton of the Supercoach world, Ross Lyon of House Anchor (whose words are ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’) have suspended the two for getting on the grog after Freo’s last game.

This is actually fair enough on Ross’ behalf BUT WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE THIS WEEK?!?!?!?!? WHYYYYYYYYYY??? AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH

Rookie Mitch Hibberd because who needs defensive cover anyway? I mean I didn’t want any. I just want a late out from someone to punch a nice big donut in my backline because WHY NOT, HEY? WHY. NOT. See if I care.

Anyone still have Joel Smith? I feel like you should be rewarded if you’ve held him this long but he’s been dropped because Supercoach hates you and everything you hold dear. Including Josh Smith, who’s been dropped, just like your expected score.

Jake Lever is out, which won’t bother anyone who isn’t a fanatical Adelaide fan or ME, who has the bastard in Supercoach Draft and a bench full of injury. Isn’t that just PEACHY, eh?

I don’t even want to look at the forward line. It’ll explode the second I make eye contact, so if I just leave the door shut, we’re going to pretend Elliot Yeo is back and no-one of significance has been dropped. Now if we all believe hard enough, when we open the door, it’ll all be fine. On three: one, two, three.

Oh wow, would you look at that! Everything’s just wonderful in here. We’ve got some new debutants, no-one’s been dropped, Jarryd Waite is back, and Jack Watts, and so is… wait where’s Jeremy Cameron? GUYS. WHO WASN’T BELIEVING HARD ENOUGH? Oh come on, he’s my F2. I can’t believe you’ve done this to me.

And of course, after slaving away over so few rookies during the first half of the year, we see a whole swathe of debutants named in the back end of the season. Just in time to ruin their prices for 2018. ISN’T THIS JUST DANDY, HEY? Literally the only positive is I’ve started making fun of their names (which in hindsight is a mean thing to be doing, but know I love you all).

Lining up for their first games this week are Nick ‘Ma’ Larkey for North Melbourne, Jack ‘I Should Have Been A Pirate’ Scrimshaw for Gold Coast, Conor ‘Someone Stole My Other N’ Glass for Hawthorn, Rowan ‘My Boat’ Marshall for St Kilda, and GWS pair Will ‘Most English Name Of The Year – 1998’ Setterfield and Isaac ‘I Bet You Thought There’d Be A Sex Joke Here’ Cumming.

And I’m done. EDITS:

The 5pm teams are in, and Sam Mitchell is missing as well, suffering from Old Man Syndrome. He’ll coach this week instead. Matt Scharenberg has done something to get on the wrong side of Nathan Buckley as he’s been dropped AGAIN (our poor backlines) which is doing my head in. Isaac Cumming won’t play, but Carlton young gun Harry ‘You’re A Wizard Harry’ McKay will. 

It’s been a tough week, and I’ve only got a single, solitary trade left. Someone please hold me, stroke my hair and tell me it’ll all be okay. Please.

JOCK WRITES FOR FOX FOOTY – SELWOOD THIS WEEK.. OR IS IT TIME FOR A POD?

 

THE PATCH UP

Last week I gave massive wraps for Brisbane superstar Dayne Zorko and he repayed me with a 55 point disaster against Richmond. So when I say my point of difference selection to replace Scott Pendlebury is Carlton’s very own Bryce Gibbs, take a Jock Reynold’s testicle-sized grain of salt with that.

Gibbs is averaging 112, which included a mammoth 208 against Gold Coast five weeks ago. Since breaking the double ton, Gibbs scored 101, 142, 99 and 96. His detractors will say if you take the 208 out, he’s averaging 102.

They’d be right, but would also be omitting a very crucial factor. He did score that 208. He won’t hit that again, but Gibbs has only dropped below 91 a single time this year (in round 2) and has been consistent in a way very few have been this year *glares at The Bont and Sloane*

He’s also in form on the run home, has a decent run home and at 618k, isn’t unaffordable. He’s also in 2.2% of sides. I’d take Tom Mitchell – and probable Lachie Neale – ahead of him, but one that’s slipped under the radar this week.

As for trading out Dangerfield? I’m with Jock on this one with a soft no.

I won’t be, but if you are trading him out, you need a detailed, researched and fact checked plan of how to get him back into your side. And a backup plan. And a backup for the backup. Because if you don’t, and he cranks out 160s to finish the year, you get left in the dust.

RUCKING HELL

Hello old friend. We haven’t seen you for a while. Todd The Rod Goldstein. What do we do with him? How long will he be back in the twos? Does he even want to play footy?

PanicRd18Image1.png

Look, he probably does. I’m sure he’s as disappointed in his form as we are. I’m sure he’ll be back before the end of the season, and what’s more, he’ll be back next week. Because Brayden Pruess hasn’t been named – he’s had back issues – and Majak Daw has been thrust into the solo ruck spot. And Tommy Bellchambers will tear him apart.

We saw Belch turn Tom Hickey inside out last week, where he returned what was probably the worst individual game of the season, and Majak isn’t a much better ruckman than Hickey is. They won’t keep Daw as the solo ruck for long, just long enough to show him North want to keep him, and short enough that North don’t get accused of tanking. Which equates to a week.

So, do we trade? It’s too late in the season to put up with this crap. If you’ve got the trades to spare, send him packing and trade him in for Shane Mumford for all the reasons mentioned in the podcast.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFT STAR

As Higgo said during the podcast this week: you have to risk it for the biscuit. That’s my theme this week in Draftstars.

PanicRd18Image2

I see the Eagles getting up over the Pies this week, despite their impressive record when Daniel Wells is playing. Their season is on the line, and if they want to play finals, the Westerners need to win this one – so I’ve stacked my side full of them.

A West Coast win means Josh J Kennedy will score, and score big. Lock. Liam Duggan had a breakout game last week, and should do more good work at ground level on Sunday. Elliot Yeo on a return from illness should similarly see action.

On the Collingwood side of things, going in without Brodie Grundy is idiocy. Lock him in. I’m also gambling on Steele Sidebottom stepping into the Pendlebury void, simply because the foot skills of Taylor Adams and Adam Treloar (whose names sound better then they flow into each other) are abhorrent.

Lewis Jetta and Will Schofield aren’t going to score much. I know this, but they’re cheap enough to let me get the players I need – hopefully if West Coast dominate, they can steal a few cheap points on the outside.

Who are you feeling this week?

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

This is getting very long, this week’s panic room. So, let’s keep this short and snappy – or we would, if DANGERFIELD WASN’T MISSING. UGH. We’re going to end up longer than Barron’s rookie report at this rate – and Barron’s rookie report has the advantage of having useful information in it. This is just memes and me shouting at stuff.

RIGHT.

If Danger plays, shove the VC on him. If not, vice captaincy options this week include: Joel Selwood, who averaged 125 against the Crows, Zach Merrett, who scored 130 the last time he played North, Tom Mitchell, who’s averaging 131 from his last 3, and the unstoppable Michael Hurley, who gets to run off a rusty Jarryd Waite and rack up another 30 touches and a 130.

For captaincy, we’ve got the Carlton boys (Kruezer, Gibbs and Docherty) who all love playing the Lions and are projected to hit 125 or so. Additionally, you could pick my boy in Dayne Zorko and pray to whatever god you believe in that he doesn’t let you down.

I’m personally going VC Zach Merrett into captain Sam Docherty. Who are you thinking of this week, community? How impacted is your midfield? How are you coping with the arrival of the Supercoach winter? – and that’s not an invitation to post Game of Thrones spoilers. You have been warned.

Best of luck, community!

I have taken a punt and gone Ebert for Pendles. I can afford the Bont but would leave me with no cash at all. His two scores of 58 scare me but its not as if the Bont is tearing it up either. Other options are: Cotchin and Oliver. What are peoples thoughts?

    SC_Kev7 · 21/07/2017 at 11:26

    Don't mind it, Jimmy. Ebert in 4% of teams compared to Bont's 38%, it's better at this point to try and seperate yourself a bit. Jock gave him a mention in his article over at fox sports today, plays 3 of his final 4 at Adelaide Oval, he's been huge there this year

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:36

    I'm going Ebert too, Jimmy. Loke what I see.

    I'm probably going to jinx him though…

    KrazeeEyezK1lla · 21/07/2017 at 12:01

    also went with Ebert

    Will · 21/07/2017 at 16:46

    Ebert was tagging Cotchin in that one game where he got 58 and he looked like he was tagging peddles for a bit in the other game where he got 58, but I think that was just a bad performance. People are saying to be wary of him because of the chance he might be used as a tagger, although it could be a smart buy. I already have Wines, Wingard, Ryder and Robbie Gray in my side, so no more Port players for me.

INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 10:39

Cracking job as always Patch. Woke up this morning & that wafting stench of "late outs" was in the air

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:37

    Cheers Pieman!

    Red sky at night; Supercoacher's delight. Red sky in the morning; everything is terrible and you should run. It was cloudy this morning but I'm sure the sky was red somewhere

      INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 11:55

      There's always Red sky & evil laughter coming from above Ross's place. How times have changed. In years gone by you'd get kicked out of the team for not getting on the p*ss after a game

Stirlsy · 21/07/2017 at 10:43

It's Dooms day Patch, just traded out Pendles took Ebert for him if Danger and Sloane are out ill cover with witheryman and the Greenman that'll leave me no cover down back also.
Time to sit back relax and watch it all fall apart…..

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 10:49

    Witherden & Greenwood will have popular employment this week Stirsly. As soon as Greenwood passes 40 points Tom Lynch is off to the pine

      The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 15:40

      Bloody glad Greenwood is playing Friday night, it gives us all a chance to reassess things on Saturday morning.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 12:32

    I'll pull up a chair with you, Stirlsy.

      Stirlsy · 21/07/2017 at 14:44

      BYO esky Patch. Mines full. Think it might be one of those weeks to drown the sorrows.

swannation · 21/07/2017 at 10:58

Should we be worried about Taylor adams being named on sunday bench?

    Stirlsy · 21/07/2017 at 11:08

    Nope

    I Steele Your Girl · 21/07/2017 at 11:29

    He is the skipper while Pendles is out

    Jose · 21/07/2017 at 13:39

    Started on the bench last week as well because buckley is a strategic genius. He'll play

      No one · 21/07/2017 at 19:46

      Worked well last week, Pies won.

Tommo09 · 21/07/2017 at 10:59

Danger/Selwood into Rocky

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 11:08

    C on Rocky. Suppose that's one way you could get a ton out of him

      Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:39

      Ha! Brilliant, Pieman. Still not sold on his shoulder, Thommo, but it could pay off

        INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 11:56

        He did score 204 against the blues last year. But at present it takes him 3 weeks to total that number

    Liam · 21/07/2017 at 11:25

    Ive had Rocky all year. Safe call if in the first of the year but not now.

    He is due but a lot risk in that.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/07/2017 at 22:46

    I've benched Rocky to take Greenwoods score mate…. Gotta wait till he's shown he is over that injury….he hasn't yet

Thomas · 21/07/2017 at 11:02

Going to VC either Jelwood or Danger tonight depending on whether Danger plays. As for C, thoughts on whacking the C on Bont against the suns? Other options for me are Doch, Treloar, JPK or Fyfe.

    SC_Kev7 · 21/07/2017 at 11:30

    Docherty on a run of 11 consecutive hundreds is a good backup for Danger/Selwood

      Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:55

      If you've got the Zork, go the Zork. Otherwise Docherty's your man. I don't trust Bont yet

Paul · 21/07/2017 at 11:02

Parsons out for Durdin, Greenwood to Joel Selwood. Holding Pendles for another week to see if he gets up, if not he's out for any mid under 600k. Witherden will cover Pendles but I'm in trouble if Danger doesn't play.

Thoughts?

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:41

    Like it Pauly, but am concerned by Durdin's job security

Gaz · 21/07/2017 at 11:03

3 questions this week community concerning who to trade in as a bit of a point of difference in the def, fwd, and ruck lines, so without further mumbo jumbo, here are my queries,

1- Who will score more out of Laird, Adams and Hurley
2 – Who will score more out of Nank and Tommy Belch
And finally 3 – Who will belt out a massive 160 out of Westhoof, Wingard and Patton.

Cheers lads (and ladettes)

Sincerely,
A first time supercoacher 🙂

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:42

    Hurley, Adams, Laird
    Tommy Belch (what even is 2017?)
    My gut says The Hoff but my brain reckons The General (Patton). I trust my gut more

    Cheers mate! Welcome!

      Gaz · 21/07/2017 at 11:53

      Thanks Patch, I love your panic rooms, theyre the best piece of SuperCoach writing I have ever seen (not that I've seen a lot of writing about supercoach…) 🙂

        Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:59

        Thanks Gaz! Means a lot!

        Make sure you hit the rest of the site up, Lek's cheat sheet on Wednesdays are the main reason I can hit 2000 by this stage, and the podcasts are several hundred times better that so make sure you check them out!

        FCAbel · 21/07/2017 at 13:03

        Agree

    SC_Kev7 · 21/07/2017 at 11:46

    Hard to answer these types of questions, Gaz. Your guess is as good as mine really,

    1. Docherty aside, Hurley the form defender of the comp right now
    2. Belly if he continues solo ruck. Nank did alright last week with Soldo in the side, it was against Brisbane though. Tiges have tougher opposition coming up
    3. Patton has had a huge month. Wingard posted a 157 last week at AO, plays 4/6 there on his run home and might just get there. He could also be horrible, no in-between

      Gaz · 21/07/2017 at 11:52

      Thank you 🙂

Dylan · 21/07/2017 at 11:07

Trade in options
Joel Selwood or Fyfe or Taylor Adams?

    Tommo · 21/07/2017 at 11:19

    Selwood and Adams

    Locked and Loaded · 21/07/2017 at 11:20

    Fyfe I reckon…

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:43

    Selwood

Corza · 21/07/2017 at 11:11

S.Selwood or Greenwood as M6?

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:45

    If Sloane'a out, go Greenwood. If Danger is, go Scooter

      Corza · 21/07/2017 at 12:22

      Cheers Mate!

Locked and Loaded · 21/07/2017 at 11:15

8 trades left… sitting top of my league… considering Luke Ryan OUT Nielson IN… Pendles OUT Titch IN… Use two trades to get Mitchell or use one for Pendles and get somebody under 535k??

    Tommo · 21/07/2017 at 11:19

    Could get Oliver, Adams, Treloar or Fyfe. All under 535k

      Locked and Loaded · 21/07/2017 at 11:22

      Correct although I'm asking do i use two trades to get a consistent scorer like Mitchell in… I know 6 is enough for finals but injuries have haunted us all

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:46

    Have a gander at who the challengers in your league have. Be a bit sneaky. If Titch is a POD, lock him in (especially if you've got the trades). If it's Zorko, go him. This is where The Art of War comes into play – you've got the advantage with 8 trades

      Locked and Loaded · 21/07/2017 at 12:11

      Thanks Patch… Will take the advice just a little wary of also covering off who the challenges may have that im concerned about

    JohndJames · 21/07/2017 at 16:01

    Get Mitch.

NickMacMan · 21/07/2017 at 11:29

Danger VC or nah?

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:47

    We saw what he did on one leg last week… I feel the answer should be no. But then again… he's Danger.

    Depends on how dicey you feel

      INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 12:01

      If Danger kicked straight last week & booted 10.1 he would have scored 250+. If he hobbles out there it's a non negotiable. If he makes his way to the goal square don't even bother with the VC

jockreynolds · 21/07/2017 at 11:31

Absolutely pissed myself Patch – CHAMPAGNE stuff haa

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 11:49

    I'm a huge avocado for some Shanpaggin on a friday morning

I Steele Your Girl · 21/07/2017 at 12:01

I'm thinking of moving Goldy to Ryder, 6 trades left. Is this a stupid move? I have Nank as cover so could hold one week

    Soothsayer · 21/07/2017 at 12:23

    I'm moving Nank in and sitting Goldy on the bench to think about what he's done. I've had Mumford and Goldy since Sandy went down the first time and they just haven't both fired together even once. I hope this week out synchronizes the two beasts and next week is a 240+ from my ruck department. nank is covered by Greenwood who could get within range to Nanks score as a forward anyway.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 12:34

    Don't mind that at all, Steeley.

benjamin B · 21/07/2017 at 12:08

6 trades left.
I mid off full premo

im going berry to jelwood and do i go pendles to neale or titch? leaning neale as 4 trades left idnt too much so could use the extra cash??

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 12:35

    Still reckon Titch will outscore Neale, and as Meaghan Trainor said in that classic, but so, so awful 2015 hit, "It's all about the points"

Soothsayer · 21/07/2017 at 12:26

Thanks Patch for the great article. I'm lucky i only have Pendles (and Dangerfield if he is left out) so I am trading Pendles and Newman out for Docherty and J. Selwood. I need Doch and its my last luxury trade before I tighten up with four left for finals.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 12:36

    Beautiful stuff, Sooth! Like it a lot, mate

    TheGreatBozza · 21/07/2017 at 12:39

    That is the definition of BANG BANG

TheGreatBozza · 21/07/2017 at 12:32

Community I'd love some feedback for this week:
Sitting in 3rd two games clear of 5th with 9 trades, however I have 1st & 2nd in my next two weeks

DEF: Doc, Laird, Howe, Adams, Shaw, Newman (Ryan, Shaz)
MID: Danger, JPK, Neale, Bont, Fyfe, Treloar, Pendles, J.Lloyd (Witherden, Bolton, Cousins)
R: Grundy, Gawn (Cameron)
FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Heeney, Dahl, Lynch, Greenwood (Nank, Hannan)

Option 1:
Pendles > Selwood
Newman > Buddy (via multiple DPPs)

Option 2:
Pendles > Selwood
Newman > Roberton

Option 3:
Newman > Selwood (Via DPP)
Hannan > Rookie
Hold Pendles to see if he makes it for finals

Option 4:
Hannan > Rookie
Pendles > Merrett or Dusty

Thoughts?

I'm leaning towards option 1 as it strengthens both my MID & FWDS, however Hannan's price is dropping fast so I wouldn't mind culling him

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 12:46

    9 trades. Wow. Hannan to Deluca. Cheap & dpp swing from the fwd bench into mids. Then Newman to Selwood & swing Lloyd back. Make a call on Pendles next week

      TheGreatBozza · 21/07/2017 at 12:54

      Cheers Pieman. I've been very conservative which explains my 12,000 ranking but leagues has been top priority. Holding Pendles could work out to be a POD move just like I did with Fyfe and Beams (after his 1st injury)

        INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 13:00

        Pendles will be a POD. But if he's not back soon grab Tmitch Dusty or Zerrett

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 13:38

    Would love to see Greenwood upgraded but Jelwood a must this week at that price

      TheGreatBozza · 21/07/2017 at 13:43

      Who do you think is more pressing to offload, Greenwood or Newman? If I stick to Piemans plan, Greenwood will be off next week

        Patch · 21/07/2017 at 13:46

        It's probably more pressing to ditch Greenwood, but if you can loop him with Nank that partly takes care of that problem, so I'd flick Newman first if you send Hannan to a DPP non-playing rookie

Patch · 21/07/2017 at 13:45

UPDATE: Sam Mitchell will miss this week

With 5 trades left, thinking of trading Pendles for Jelwood.
Should I look to upgrade the likes of Steele or Roo to a Yeo, Franklin or Ryder?
Thoughts?

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:07

    Absolutely, 3 trades should see you through finals. Would go Roo to Yeo if you can

Juzzy · 21/07/2017 at 13:50

Brilliant stuff Patch. The perfect combination of hilarity and tragedy.

I got nostalgic earlier this week when I traded in GAJ. I started randomly looking at my team throughout the day just to see his name in my midfield and it felt so so right.

Oh well …..

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:08

    It'll be the last time you see it, Juzzy. Truly a sight to behold. We may never see the like again.

    Or Dangerfield could do the same thing tbh

red5 · 21/07/2017 at 13:55

Luke Ryan to Leigh Montagna for B7 bench cover?

    Burns. · 21/07/2017 at 14:01

    Zac Williams next week, he'll be around 410-420k.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 13:56

If/when I trade pendles will have $588k which is just enough to bring in dusty or zerrett or ?
Have already punted parsons to jelwood so wondering which one to finish off mids?
Dusty has a pretty nice draw coming up.
Mids Danger, Bont, Fyfe, JPK, Treloar, jelwood, Titch and either dusty or zerrett.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:08

    You know my answer, Trigga. Zerrett is lyf

AuroraBorealis?! · 21/07/2017 at 14:06

Is it worth trading Goldstein to Kruezer to avoid a donut? 7 trades remaining

    One Touch Wonder · 21/07/2017 at 14:52

    Hell yes. Its an upgrade. Who knows when goldy will be back. Did the same trade, but u should also consider mumford and gawn

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:08

    Absolutely

      AuroraBorealis?! · 21/07/2017 at 18:23

      I've just pushed the trade button, thanks for the advice guys (watch him do an ACL)

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:20

    7 trades? No doubt. Kruezer the top ruck.

    Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 17:55

    Make 70k and go Mummy!

Juzzy · 21/07/2017 at 14:09

I am going Dusty Trigga.

Good draw and still in the hunt for a Brownlow.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 14:23

    Yeah thinking along similar lines

    Steeeve Perry · 21/07/2017 at 14:46

    That's what I've done. Every team worth its salt in my main league already has him so it's a boring move. But Dusty wants the Brownlow and he's going to go wild to end the season.

Trenna · 21/07/2017 at 14:16

Amigos,
I have 7 trades left and no sweet cashmoney this round and I need advice re: pendles
So one trade for parsons down to s. simpson this week to generate 200k.
Then I can go Pendlebury down to Jelwood or up to Dusty.
Already have Dangerfield, Mitchell, Bont, Kennedy, Zorko, Fyfe, Treloar in the midfield.

Have some cows on the bench to milk later too.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:09

    With 7 trades left, grab Jelwood this week and upgrade next week I reckon

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 14:22

Just finished that comical wizardry.
Side was in stitches I think a bit of pee came out.
Belta patch Belta.

Daniel · 21/07/2017 at 14:49

Thoughts on trading Pendles to Rockliff and looping him and R.Gray for the rest of the season? Will allow me to trade S.Bolton instead of Ryan to my final forward premo moving Lynch to F7, Greenwood to M10 and have Witherden/Ryan as D7/8

    Dave · 21/07/2017 at 14:51

    Do it

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 15:10

    That's tasty, Dan. So very tasty. Make sure you can loop both blokes for each game but if so, lock it in

    johnno2908 · 21/07/2017 at 16:42

    Was very much thinking the same Dan. Both can go huge. I'm also contemplating Beams at under $400k in a similar role.

Steeeve · 21/07/2017 at 15:08

Real shame Trengove is playing. Could have been had for an absolute bargain next year (at a different club).

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:25

    Love seeing him out there from a hooman perspective as it's what he loves doing, but from a fantasy point of view it is annoying. Same with many of the debutants this round

The Guv'na · 21/07/2017 at 15:26

Community, need help.

Bringing in Selwood for Greenwood, then upgrading Newman.

Limited trades left, leaning towards Laird but it's very vanilla. My other two options are the more expensive Hurley and the cheaper Roberton.

Who is the best defensive option of these three?

Appreciate it!

    Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 16:41

    Hurley will finish the season at about 105 and Laird about 102 imo. It depends if you want that little extra a game

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 16:43

      Thats a precision estimate.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:25

    Hurley for mine

JDP · 21/07/2017 at 15:30

What are your thoughts on my inability to decide on trades this week:
Pendels and Goldy out

In : Kruzer & J.Selwood

Or

In: Mummy & Dusty

Thoughts appreciated

    Goat · 21/07/2017 at 15:33

    I'd go the first. Kreuzer real POD.

      Derek · 21/07/2017 at 17:02

      at some point Carlton will take the foot off. not in finals. id prefer to have players who are playing for the finals

        Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:26

        Not sure this group will. Bolton's fashioning a new type of Carlton and I don't like what I see, because it means they're playing good football

Marcus · 21/07/2017 at 16:24

So I have 4 trades only 100k and full Premo except for like Ryan as my 6th defender who's out. Should I trade him to johannisan or not worth it

    Lazza · 21/07/2017 at 17:19

    Ryan will be back next week. JJ has little value this year … what about Williams? (net week).

      Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:27

      I'm with Lazza here – if you've got cover, hold for a week, reasses next and possibly bring in Zac Williams. Or bring williams in this week

        Marcus · 21/07/2017 at 18:19

        I have no cover now that shaz is out

Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 16:40

Remember when everyone was trading Cripps in…. injured for the season. I wanted to go with Ebert but now….. everyone jump off the Ebert bandwagon please

Nicko · 21/07/2017 at 16:41

Witherden or Newman on field?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 16:42

    Loophole Newman?

    Derek · 21/07/2017 at 17:00

    newman has lost his role to McVeigh. he seems to just wonder around the field now looking for a kick.

Nicko · 21/07/2017 at 16:44

Cheers 🙂

Stupid Coach · 21/07/2017 at 16:49

Pure Gold Patch!!. Absolutely love it. Trading Pendles to J Selwood. Tossing up whether to also get rid of Todd The Rod and bring in Mummy or leave it to next week to see if Goldy returns. Can swing Nank into the ruck but that means I have to play Thomas (Coll) on the field.

Also, should I put Witherden on the field or leave him on the bench as cover in case Danger does not play tonight.

Appreciate any comments/thoughts much appreciated.

    Stupid Coach · 21/07/2017 at 16:52

    Currently have 7 trades, however, need a win to stay inside the top 8 in both my cash leagues.

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:28

    Keep Witherden on the pine, Danger looks as though he may play. If you need a win this week, with 7 trades in the bank flick Goldy and bring in Mummy.

      Stupid Coach · 21/07/2017 at 17:34

      Thanks Patch. I thought Pendles to J Selwood was a no brainer, however, now I thinking of Ebert instead. Ebert has the better average, has more scores over 100 while Selwood has the highest score (against the Crows) and the only one really low score. Thoughts?

Dan · 21/07/2017 at 16:53

I'm planning on downgrading Melican to a DPP (def/mid) player for cash this week. I was wondering, do you think I should downgrade him to Junker (102K, but won't play) OR to Glass (117K, but is playing this week)?

    Dan · 21/07/2017 at 17:10

    P.S. My only other cover in Def is Ryan (hoping he'll be back) and Witherden (who is also my only cover for the midfield)

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:28

    I'd probably go Glass – you don't need any more loophole options at this stage, but don't expect big scores from him

      Dan · 21/07/2017 at 18:14

      Thanks Patch! You're right, I'm not expecting big scores from him, but it might be helpful having a warm body on the bench at some stage.

Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 16:55

Im confused to why people think Richmond have an easy draw remaining…….

This week vs Giants. Anything could happen, being in Melbourne favours Richmond obviously.

Round 19. Suns at Metricon. This should be a walk in the park, it gets worse from here though into SC finals.

Round 20. Hawks at MCG. Wont surprise me if they lose this one.

Round 21. Cats at SS. Enough said.

Round 22. Freo in Perth. Who they already lost to in Melbourne. Not an easy game regardless of ladder position.

Round 23 Saints at MCG. Sure its a home game but they got flogged by them.

Worst possible result. 1 out of 6. Best possible 3 out of 6.

    Derek · 21/07/2017 at 16:58

    i was thinking the same. Champion data had them ranked the easiest run home

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:12

      Perhaps best 4 out of 6.

    Cogla13 · 21/07/2017 at 17:04

    Best possible is 6 out of 6 surely. They should beat GWS this weekend.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:06

      This is their wins this year.

      Twice Carlton.
      Twice Brisbane.
      Collingwood.
      North.
      Melbourne.
      Port at AO – great win.
      West Coast (in melbourne……)
      Bombers

      Maybe im being a harsh critic but their whole season has been an easy draw, bar the upcoming games.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:08

      You reckon theyll beat the saints who gave them a royal flogging and Geelong? I reckon Freo will beat them too.

    neil demons delight · 21/07/2017 at 17:18

    That's a tough draw in any ones book. If ablett plays even the suns game is not a shoe in.I wouldnt put a line through the Hawks either

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:28

      Exactly. Last time they played GCS it was in melbourne and around 120 to 100.

      Hawks beat them convincingly twice in 2016.

      People just look at the number of wins/ladder position without really analysing the details.

      Worst case 0 and 6 haha

      When looking at who theyve actually beat and the close ones theyve let go I feel like nothing has changed and theyve fooled everyone.

Winter · 21/07/2017 at 17:01

With only 4 trades and 30k left is it worth trading Pendles or do I hold?

Only options ore Ebert or Bont really cause already have Jelwood

Hmmm

    Cogla13 · 21/07/2017 at 17:02

    Beams is cheap.

      Winter · 21/07/2017 at 17:10

      Don't trust him

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:17

      Key point only 4 trades, no way.

Cogla13 · 21/07/2017 at 17:06

Sharenberg dropped. Conigs not playing .

    Cogla13 · 21/07/2017 at 17:08

    Also Bolton only an emergency.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 17:09

    Gr8 Ryan and shaz Def bench.
    U six on field stay healthy u hear. No late outs!

      Triggy · 21/07/2017 at 17:24

      Me too!!!!!! and no doubt a few others.

Hoot · 21/07/2017 at 17:06

Franklin or Ryder?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 17:18

    Tough call, need ruck backup?

      Hoot · 21/07/2017 at 17:57

      Got Nank in fwds

      Goldy and Gawn.

      Presently covering Goldy

    Patch · 21/07/2017 at 17:30

    Probably Buddy unless you've got injury prone rucks

Triggy · 21/07/2017 at 17:17

No one has mentioned Titch as captain.. I have traded Pendles in for Tiitch with Zerrett as VC
Any fans for Titch as Captain?

    P.Cripps · 21/07/2017 at 18:39

    cosistent asf

Saundo · 21/07/2017 at 17:25

Roberton, Martin, Montagna or Williams for my last spot in defence?

    Jon · 21/07/2017 at 18:28

    Zac Smith

Rosko · 21/07/2017 at 17:25

I also have titch as Captain. He has been in great form/

tony · 21/07/2017 at 17:33

Hi Patch. Goldy to Kruezer or Mumford or Ryder – can't decide

Jess · 21/07/2017 at 17:33

"His (Dangerfield's) body has held up well through the fitness test, and altough it is expected that the majority of his tike will be spent up forward, he's both keen and able to line-up against his old teammates tonight." – Herald Sun

Danger is in!!

CRIPPStoniteSC · 21/07/2017 at 17:34

Cya pendles and goldy

Mumford/Martin & Tommy Mitch

Or

Gawn & Merrett??

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 17:56

    Option 1.

Jem · 21/07/2017 at 17:36

8 Trades – 230k
Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
Pendles, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Pepper (Berry, Witherden, Cousins)
Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
Dank, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Greenwood (Eddy, Parsons)
Thoughts? Pendles to Selwood and Pepper to a FWD Swing Greenwood up or something else?
I would love opinions over what to do over 2 weeks to put me in good spot for finals. Thanks

Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 17:42

I have literally zero bench cover on every line and two trades left.

Time to panic.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/07/2017 at 22:53

    I only have 2 of my 4 intended floating donuts (JDC and Perryman playing) and pendles not playing….interesting how different things can be…..27 green lights same as last week…..

BrownlowBoy · 21/07/2017 at 17:55

Rumours on twitter saying Joel Selwood is ill and may not play.

    WHAT

      Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 18:11

        Joel and danger are too tough to sit it out for minor things 🙂

    wightyswarriors · 21/07/2017 at 18:15

    Twitter will be the first to announce WW111

Matt · 21/07/2017 at 17:55

Hey guys
Shaz and Ryan both out, but now I have no cover in def. do I trade Shaz – Jelwood, which means I can switch junker into def, and it gives me a chance to put Witherden in def if a mate out occurs. Or Do I stick with Pendles – Jelwood?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 18:09

    Ryan will be back next week, lots of guys are gonna be playing with no cover this week, sometime ya gotta.

Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 17:56

Run the VC on Danger? Could be the week he doesn't dominate. Big call…

    finnigin · 21/07/2017 at 18:01

    great call rick , but we are talking about a freak and if he wasnt so freakish i would be running with your idea, still might

      Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 18:04

      Yes it's probably madness to even consider.

    Shannon · 21/07/2017 at 18:35

    He once played for the Crows he knows the ground VC he is a genius.

    Free Kick · 21/07/2017 at 18:40

    It's Danger, you can't afford not to…

    Randomcliche2 · 21/07/2017 at 22:54

    I learnt my lesson the week Titch got 50 disposals and saved my bacon. Never not VC Danger again!

    Big G · 21/07/2017 at 18:13

Big G · 21/07/2017 at 18:12

Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 18:12

Danger and Luke Ryan to Titch and Taylor Adams?

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 18:14

    Danger is playing dude

      Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 18:17

      Oh shit I didn't see that

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 18:16

    NO! Danger = VC 150 tonight.

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 18:18

    In that case Newman to Taylor Adams

      INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 18:21

      Tick

      Goat · 21/07/2017 at 18:28

      Finnius. 2 Trades + 6 rounds of SC = HOLD. You will have nothing to panic about for the next 6 weeks if you spend them now.

FEARTHEBEARD · 21/07/2017 at 18:14

Any confirmation on DANGER?

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 18:20

BrownlowBoy · 21/07/2017 at 18:22

Both teams go in as selected. Danger, Selwood, Sloane play.

    One Touch Wonder · 21/07/2017 at 18:50

    Stick the VC on Sloane. SHARK MOVE.

      hedski · 21/07/2017 at 19:05

      Scooter will keep him to 55 points OTW.

      Derek · 21/07/2017 at 21:55

    Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 18:32

    Who knows what he'll serve up. Sit forward and kick a bag. Or hardly touch it. Or run amock all over the ground and score 200. Or hobble around like a spud. Or get 50 touched. Barrrgghlalalalalalalalalalala

      Jim · 21/07/2017 at 19:04

      He ain't been unpredictable so far

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 19:28

      Isn't that why we have the VC?
      To get two cracks at it if needed.
      Danger has been so good he has made the capt choice redundant.
      But he is human we thinks, a funny one at that
      I can't move the VC anywhere else so go into the danger zone Top Gun. Do your thing.

        hedski · 21/07/2017 at 19:29

        Same Trigga, tempted by Jelwood but meh, Danger it is.

Dean · 21/07/2017 at 18:25

Oh shit I traded out Danger now I can't reverse?

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 18:27

    You can reverse mate. You have 90 minutes until the crows-cats match. As soon as the match starts, trades will be irreversible. The clock is ticking mate.

    Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 18:29

    Yes, do it now!

FEARTHEBEARD · 21/07/2017 at 18:28

yewwww up it danger.

John · 21/07/2017 at 18:33

Why were people considering trading Dangerfield out I don't understand???

    Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 18:38

    Not sure anyone was really serious about it. There's just no comparable pick to Danger.

      INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 18:56

      As it stands 523 brave souls have traded Danger. Less than an hour to reverse. Many will be chasing skirt in the pub & not be aware

BrownlowBoy · 21/07/2017 at 18:34

Thoughts please.

170k in the bank and 9 trades.

Doch, Simmo, Laird, Lloyd, Howe, Shaw, Ryan, Hibberd
Dangerfield, Selwood, Bont, Merrett, Kennedy, Treloar, Fyfe, Witherden, Berry, Cousins, Brown
Grundy, Gawn, Strndica
Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Ryder, Lynch, Greenwood, Bolton, Eddy

Couple of options:
1. Bolton and Berry to Buddy/Heeney and Atley
2. Berry to Taylor Adams who I can later swing between defence and mid as cover
3. Bolton and Berry to Atley and Dusty/Neale/Kelly

    INPieman · 21/07/2017 at 19:33

    Consider Berry to Deluca & loop with Greenwood tonight via Eddy. Then Bolton to Selwood if that works for you

James · 21/07/2017 at 18:36

VC Danger or Merrett?

Greg · 21/07/2017 at 18:37

Danger will be way off tonight, he'll be to busy thinking about catching up with the cowboys back in the showers again

Rick Grimes · 21/07/2017 at 18:39

3. Any of those. Dusty for mine.

Tom · 21/07/2017 at 18:41

Hey guys
Anyone thinking about VCing Jelwood despite Danger being in? Jelwood has racked up 30 touches in 4 of his last 5 against the crows including 151 earlier this season.

Mitch22 · 21/07/2017 at 18:53

Anyone considering loopholing Hibberd NM with Danger as emergency and say Witherden as backup?

albert · 21/07/2017 at 18:56

who to bench out of this bunch of midfielders. atm thinkiing of loopholling dangerfield on bench and if he scores well then he goes on but whos spot does he take out of..

titch, martin, zerrett, JPK, hanners, selwood, treloar or rocky..

    dane · 21/07/2017 at 18:58

    also who to captain. atm have
    VC selwood. C titch
    although thinking zerret vc titch c

Huckleberry · 21/07/2017 at 19:02

Rocky. Are you captaining Titch?

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 19:03

OK. Who has the fortitude to whack the VC on Danger tonight? Or do we play conservative, and put him on the bench with the E on him, in case he breaks down. Personally, I reckon he will be fine. Thoughts?

    Rabbits16 · 21/07/2017 at 19:14

    im gonna risk it. testicular fortitude all the way 😀

    Maestro · 21/07/2017 at 19:15

    Shorting Danger! Who'd ave thought!
    Fortune favours the brave though; thinking vc Zerrett and skipper Doch

    The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 19:19

    If he's on the park he gets the VC from me every week.

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 19:25

      That is my position generally also. If he plays early and is fully fit, he gets the VC. On this occasion I am a little more cautious. Still stewing and pondering. Got 25 minutes to make the call.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 19:33

        Gives us a heads up when you decide.

        Would help with my league match this week.

garfield_da_cat · 21/07/2017 at 19:04

selwood or rocky who to trade in?

Corza · 21/07/2017 at 19:04

S.Selwood and Greenwood both playing who should I put as M6?

Richie Porte · 21/07/2017 at 19:05

Ouch

    The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 19:21

    Did you fall off ya bike again Ritchie?

      Richie Porte · 22/07/2017 at 07:08

      Wheelchair this time

        The Ranger · 22/07/2017 at 08:37

        Bugger

cashcows · 21/07/2017 at 19:05

4 trades left with 227k
Which option should I go?
Pendles + newman ->
1: zerrett + martin 1.9k left
2: mitchell + lloyd 100k left
3: mitchell + sidebottom 31.2k

Or is there a better combination I'm not seeing for 1,155k

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 19:10

    I like the Zerrett and Dustin Martin combo. More podish compared to the Titch and Lloyd combo. Although depends if your midfield needs more grunt or your backline needs a bit more firepower. Good luck.

      cashcows · 21/07/2017 at 19:22

      Cheers for the quick piece of knowledge before lock out.

      Mitchell is so damn consistent but I think zerrett is up there and having martin along side sounds better than backing in lloyd or sidebottom with the chance of pendles looming back in a few.

Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 19:10

Cmon if he had 11 shots on goal straight after he hurt his foot jumping for marks leading for marks why after 1 week rest he would miss this game. Im not saying initially it wasnt sore as it happened but probably was never going to miss.

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 19:13

    I agree Shake. I reckon he will come up OK. Maybe not quite 100%, but he will get some midfield time I reckon. He looked pretty sprightly when he walked off the bus and into the Adelaide oval changerooms earlier. You gonna VC him?

Tommy · 21/07/2017 at 19:14

I'll guarantee you that the 100 top placed supercoachers will VC Danger tonight

Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 19:16

Think so Hawk. I agree will go fwd with less minutes in the middle. Lever out hurts.

The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 19:17

Pendles, Ablett, Ryan and Scharenberg out = Greenwood and Witherden onfield and zero bench cover for me.
Gonna wait and see how Greenwood goes before deciding whether to trade but interested in any advice/options.
5 trades left and 62K.

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 19:33

    I would do the same. Take a wait and see approach. If Greenwood delivers, tick. If Witherden delivers, tick. Those 5 trades left are crucial and you need to use them very strategically.

    If things go against you, and you are staring at a donut then trade out Pendles. Then see how you go. If another drama strikes, then Scharenberg would be your next trade priority for a rook to raise extra cash. Hopefully, you get decent outputs from Greenwood and Witho, and can save your trades. Cheers

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 19:38

      Witherden playing last game of round isn't he?

        The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 19:43

        He is indeed…

      The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 19:41

      Yeah I'm seriously considering moving on Pendles and Shazza,
      Shazza can't seem to cement his place and if I move him on this week it gives me the chance raise a bit more cash and paint a fence at some point down the track.
      And I don't know if you've ever broken a finger but it's bloody godawful trying to catch a ball after. I'll be surprised if Pendles doesn't miss at least two.

Thomas · 21/07/2017 at 19:21

Can't believe im gonna say this, but im very much contemplating VCing Jelwood instead of Danger. Selwood has a very healthy record against the Crows and Danger a little sore. Thoughts community?

    Saundo · 21/07/2017 at 19:25

    Yes very tempting!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 19:36

    Apparently jelwood crook today

    Derek · 21/07/2017 at 19:41

    I think cats will get beat. Staying away from both. Watch Sloane go big.

Laurie · 21/07/2017 at 19:33

Last week I asked advice about trading Sloane and kept him only to cry later…this week I can't do it anymore the pain is too much….Sloane to Macrae as I still don't have Gina
Pendles to Mitchell leaves 5 trades…last minute thoughts? Only leaves 10k

    Steeeve · 21/07/2017 at 23:40

    Hope you didn't pull the trigger!!

GloryDays90 · 21/07/2017 at 19:42

Have taken a risk and put the C on Jelwood! Dont let me down boy!

    BlueNath · 21/07/2017 at 19:44

    You mean VC?

      GloryDays90 · 21/07/2017 at 21:08

      Yeah sorry guys VC haha

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 19:48

    Hope that's the vc?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 20:20

    Gosh

Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 19:42

Chris Scott said Danger is going to play mostly forward. Can't expect him to kick a bag since that was mostly due to the Hawks structure last week. Anyone taking the VC off him now? Adelaide should be prepared for him to play forward.
Scott also said Selwood was in fact sick

    BlueNath · 21/07/2017 at 19:43

    Scott also said Danger was a 40% chance of playing

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 19:48

    Na

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 20:04

    Danger VC tonight. You just gotta!!!

      Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 20:08

      He looks fine Hawker…all over the park, no worries there.

      Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 20:08

      Yep I gave myself a slap in the face and put the VC on danger

BlueNath · 21/07/2017 at 19:42

Just saw Danger burst through the banner. Whack that VC on him and enjoy the game!

Cats Fan · 21/07/2017 at 19:50

Danger to kick 6 and Cats to win by 45+

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 20:19

    You must b be watching a different game?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 20:21

    They need to stick Danger fwd for a bit so he can kick 3 quick goals.

    redherringfc · 21/07/2017 at 22:01

    3qt, hope your right. I'm looking forward to this last quarter. 80 point turn around.

Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 19:54

Go Cattas and go Danger and Joel…big win and big points!

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 21:12

    Need a BIG second half, crows playing finals footy, my cats are playing like pussies. TOUGHEN UP BOYZ

No one · 21/07/2017 at 20:02

Gotta feel sorry for the poor bastard (I know you're out there somewhere) who traded out Danger and Sloane.

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 20:09

OK, same question again. Who has the VC on Danger tonight?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 20:12

    Hell yeah! Hand up.

    Thomas · 21/07/2017 at 20:19

    Yup!

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 20:22

    BANG! Good answer boys!

      Don't Blush Baby · 21/07/2017 at 20:28

      yep

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 21:16

    Yep. LIFT PUSSIES.

Jelwood WTF!!!

Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 20:23

I love you like commentators love Dangerfield <3

Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 20:27

3 quarters to go mate, he'll rise to the occasion.

    Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 20:32

    Yeah my gut also said to not VC Danger so I guess I can't complain lmao

      Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 20:42

      Bad idea haha

        Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 20:47

        I ended up ignoring my gut luckily 🙂

Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 20:28

All scooter has got is a bunch of frees against him for his holding, I mean tagging skills.

    hedski · 21/07/2017 at 21:14

    Yep Sloane dog killing it.

      Derek · 21/07/2017 at 21:57

      Cats are arrogant and knew they wouldn't tag him

        Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:35

        Or maybe it was a case of they know we're going to do it, so we'll do the opposite to throw them off. Kinda like those mental games with rock scissors paper lol.

        hedski · 21/07/2017 at 23:58

        Arrogance/confidence is what wins flags Derek you should know that.

Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 20:41

    Geelong cant really complain after last weeks umpiring when they were gifted the game lmao

    redherringfc · 21/07/2017 at 21:01

    this is nothing compared to some of geelongs home games.

    i hate the crows, but felt sorry for them at skilled a few weeks ago.

    i'm Just happy i held onto sloane

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 21:04

      Good move mate! The moaning about the umpires never stops. It is as certain as taxes and death.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:15

    Adelaide's winning because they've kicked more goals than Geelong, and have been cleaner with the ball, Geelong's fwd line is crap so far tonight..blaming the Umpires is just whining. Adelaide have played better so far.

      hedski · 21/07/2017 at 21:18

      Agreed, massive cats fan, no complaints about the umps we're being slaughtered around the contest.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 21:19

      Spot on, and I reckon all the frees I've seen have been there, that saying I missed half the second term

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 20:59

I knew it. Danger is as fit as a fiddle. What a machine. Reminds me of the Terminator!!

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:04

    Shame about scooter though…not doing his job tonight with Sloane on 91.

Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 21:04

C'mon Jakobs you have already beat your score from last week!!!

Iamme · 21/07/2017 at 21:04

Nice to see Sloanedog finally delivering, picked him up 4 weeks ago.

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 21:11

Patrick Dangerfield. 81 SC at half time. Excuse me…..

Can he double it?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 21:24

    I reckon 140ish

    BlueNath · 21/07/2017 at 21:37

    He can and will

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 21:54

      Agreed. 118 SC at 3/4 time.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:32

      No I told you 140-ish. Haha

Jordan · 21/07/2017 at 21:17

Is it worth going Goldstein to Gawn because I will cop a zero if I don't but will only have 2 trades if I do (I am playing for league wins)

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:18

    Can you afford to go straight to Kreuzer?….Gawn could still be a dud this year.

    Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 21:29

    Save 70k and go Mummy thats what im doing

gator59 · 21/07/2017 at 21:19

Where are all the Sloans knockers now… I don't have him but he's carving them up..

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 21:23

    Well to be fair they've been right in knocking him he went from hero to zero. Glad I held though hope he can score well for the remainder of the season. Wasn't worth trading at his current value anyway.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:33

    Only cause Scooter's been a mega-spud tonight…otherwise he would've got another 55.

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 00:01

    Tasty M9 next week gator.

Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:30

Was it Derek, who had the VC on Sloane?…big move!

    Derek · 21/07/2017 at 22:00

    I don't have him but just called it that Dloane would have a big game.

    I believe it was One Touch Wonder's shark move to bring Sloane in and slap the VC on him.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:31

      Yep good call Derek.

Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 21:35

VC'd Joel not Danger rip

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 22:14

    May not be disasterous

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:19

    Nah, not too bad mate…you can work with that as a backup.

Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 21:38

Razor Ray really loves Dangerfield and Duckwood doesn't he… Nothing makes me happier than watching the Cats gets flogged

Goat · 21/07/2017 at 21:47

Dangerflop week 2.

Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 21:50

Greenwood's looking like he's gonna be a keeper..in the 90's at 3/4 time.

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 21:53

    Straight up gun with good TOG – next midfield beast

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 21:57

    Got him and will deliver triple digits. The E is planted on his face.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:37

      Yep happy to move Lynch to the pine and take Greenwood's score. Will be playing Bombers Stewart over Lynch and expecting 70+

Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 21:57

Who to put out to make room for Greenwood's high score? Bont, Oliver, Ebert, Wines, Treloar

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 22:04

    Wines

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:10

    Wines…or Butchoar

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:59

    Wines.

    Rick Grimes · 22/07/2017 at 03:28

    None of those. I'd back then all to score big.

redherringfc · 21/07/2017 at 21:57

All week, sloane was gone. Last minute went Berry to selwood instead, put Sloane on the bench with the E on him.

137 at 3 quarter time. Can't believe i put Scooter on field instead of Sloane.

Who do i sacrifice out of Hanners, Treloar, Bont, Mitchell or Fyfe?

recent form says Hanners, but the saints at home?

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 22:04

    hanners for surejavascript: postComment(1);

      Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:06

      I agree with Finn….hanners for surejavascript: postComment(1); LOL

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:04

    Hanners…give him a rest.

The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 21:59

I think Jarrod Pickett's gonna be onfield for me this week.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/07/2017 at 22:06

    Good choice

Defying_Madness · 21/07/2017 at 22:13

I can understand why 🙂

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 22:31

I will take Danger's VC score. 140 SC.

Who else is coming for the ride!

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:34

    138…I'll take it, wish it was more but…It's still good 🙂 hopefully it still goes up a bit under review.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:43

      142, great captain score.

        TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 22:44

        BANG. LOCKED.

    One Touch Wonder · 21/07/2017 at 22:40

    I'm happy with VC on Sloane. A SHARK MOVE that paid off.

      The Ranger · 21/07/2017 at 22:44

      Nice move One Touch.

      Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:45

      Well done!

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2017 at 22:48

      Well done. You had your "one" touch wonder this year.

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:56

      Wait…..but now you don't have Danger right?

        One Touch Wonder · 21/07/2017 at 23:05

        No Pendlebury

          Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 23:05

          Nice one. I'm pretty happy with my Pendles to Jelwood too.

    gator59 · 21/07/2017 at 23:01

    Yep

Shake n bake · 21/07/2017 at 22:32

Not a bad start Danger vc Selwood Jakobs Greenwood Laird just who to bench to take Greenwood score Dahl Lynch Heeney Buddy Mcrae Ryder?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:33

    Lynch…Dahl. Both out of form.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 23:04

    Lynch for sure, going to be a tough ask for GCS in melbourne with no God, Lyons or Barlow.

    Surely Dahl has a big one too.

P.Cripps · 21/07/2017 at 22:32

hey guys, wtf is with super coach and danger. I do not have as I don't like the guy, but what I can't bet my head around is how he had 21 touches in the first half, and was on 81 super coach points. he then only had 4 clean touches in the second half, but yet somehow got 59 points for that half. super coach is corrupt, its unfair for the people who don't have him. I saw him kick a set shot out on the full in the 4th and go up 2 points, when earlier in the game Greenwood missed everything as well and went down in score. I find this annoying and I want answers. soz for the long rant but it had to be said.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:39

    It's not corrupt, it's just largely unknown how scores are arrived at exactly, there are many variables, depending on the situation of the game also…Like him or not, if you don't have him, you're at a disadvantage, he's the best player in the game…like what Gaz used to be.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:42

    Was probably a contested mark and long kick inside 50 that negated the out on the full points.

    Rick Grimes · 22/07/2017 at 03:32

    If you don't have him you aren't a serious fantasy player. Personal feelings have no place in the game.

      P.Cripps · 22/07/2017 at 11:17

      Rick you muppet. If danger is scored without bias he wouldn't have the scores he is getting. It's bull crap how we have to have him to win. Ohh and u say I'm not a serious player, tell me what u score this week

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:19

        He's not a muppet mate, and that's a pretty immature reaction from you, he's just stating a fact…if you don't have Danger in your Supercoach squad, you may not be as as serious about it as you think you are, he's the high scoring set and forget VC and C every week.
        Liking or not liking a player shouldn't come into it..it's the ones who get you the consistent big points you have to get.

    Crow · 22/07/2017 at 05:50

    I have him, but i watched the whole match with the supercoach live scores, and he was getting points even when he was on the bench. Also, when he got that free against and then dived and got a free kick and a kick, not only did he not lose points for the free against, but he went up by over 10 points. CD do have their favorites weather people choose to believe it or not, most won't care cause they make Danger their VC/C so they're happy he gets heaps of points. But i think they need to make it fair for every player.

      Whatyasmokin · 22/07/2017 at 10:31

      They are constantly reviewing passages of play to give accurate scoring. This is why scores are added or taken away from ALL players at various times whether it's when they're off the field or not. You have no idea and you're just embarrassing yourself. The reason you're noticing with a player like Danger is he's a part of play that often.

        Crow · 22/07/2017 at 17:07

        Then explain why he gives away a free kick but gets points for it. I've seen players who aren't favorites give away frees and go down multiple points straight away, but Dangerfield either stays the same or goes up. And no offence but last nights game wasn't worth a 140+ game.

          Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:15

          Crow, there is probably a team of 5 guys constantly reviewing play by play all the way through the game, and 2 hours after the game, just to make sure they get it right, according to their system, hence the constant delays and staggered scoring effects.

          If one of those 5 guys notices something the other 4 didn't initially, then it could be changed..at a later time.
          It's certainly not favouritism mate, that would be truly illegal and would have been exposed by now, there's too much money on the line.

Joe · 21/07/2017 at 22:34

Who to bench for Greenwood's 103, Nank or Lynch?

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:35

    Lynch

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:40

    Yep Lynch for sure, playing away, no ablett, no lyons and probably other mids too. They have a bad injury list in their engine room.

      Keenbutclueless · 21/07/2017 at 22:50

      Have done the same. My only fear is if Yeo is a late out, no cover. But I can't bring myself to loophole Yeo and leave Lynch and Nank on the field. Nor can I leave Greenwood 103 on the bench! Eddy is my looping player and Port play early, so have to make the early call. Surely Yeo can't be a late out two weeks running?

        Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:54

        Yeo shouldn't be a late out was only some soreness on the back of his leg or knee I think, probably trained fine.

          Keenbutclueless · 22/07/2017 at 01:14

          Thanks. I think you are right.

Hi all,

I've lost my house as recently as tonight, I was wondering if anyone had a house they could let me borrow in the interim whilst I swallow my pride. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Bad News Brown

    I could loan you a rather large cardboard box? …you could cut your own window in it. 🙂

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 22:52

    Haha love it BNB.

Samuel · 21/07/2017 at 22:50

To j trade goldy because I need a league win and if so do I get Gawn or Mumford (I would have two trades left

    Pman · 21/07/2017 at 23:27

    If you have the funds got to Kruezer as he's likely to score higher and is a great POD. I'm in the same boat and see it as a true upgrade whereas Goldy to Gawn (looks shaky) and Mumford is too sideways at this time of year when trades are a premium.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2017 at 22:50

Ahh top gun and his wingman deliver yet again
No need to use the capt again this week.

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 00:13

    Pendles gets the armband this week Trigga, first thing he's done right in the last month.

    Top Gun · 22/07/2017 at 22:14

    I know yr talking of Danger as I don't need a wingman 🙂

Josh · 21/07/2017 at 22:55

Have Joel Selwood on the bench with the E.
Want to take his 128 but not sure who to bench out of Josh Kelly, Fyfe, Neale, Merrett, Kennedy, Treloar or Bontempelli.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2017 at 22:57

    Easy…Treloar the butcher.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 23:02

    Agree Treloar, although all of those players can go big.

    As of right now Bont and Treloar are probably the most inconsistent (yes I'm assuming Fyfe is back)

    But I reckon Bont and the Doggies are going to tear GCS to shreds.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/07/2017 at 23:06

    I don't see Kennedy going 130+ but nor do I see him going below 100….that is low risk option….but I'd bench Kelly, he's young Richmond not easy team to beat, the others are mostly likely winning teams…

      Whatyasmokin · 21/07/2017 at 23:21

      I like your analysis and not saying you're wrong but last time Richmond played GWS was round 19 last year.

      GWS 111 – RICH 23.

      Although Kelly hasn't scored massive (SC wise) recently his actual stats have been very impressive against Sydney, Hawks and Geelong. I couldn't bring myself to bench him if I owned him.

      That saying arguments could be made against my choice of benching Treloar, with no Pendles he should get even more of the ball.

      Edit – Actually I'm wrong Richmond played GWS this year and only lost by 3 points. My mistake lol.

        Randomcliche2 · 23/07/2017 at 23:41

        No biggie….turns out it didn't really matter who he benched, was going to make points of it…with I think Bont being the optimal choice with sub-par 80 points….always good to recall thrashings like that….they can leave a mark of team for a while….

Andrew · 21/07/2017 at 23:27

Emergency loopholed Greenwood, do I take off Nank or Billings?

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 00:15

    Billings, Nank got a hundred odd against Mummy earlier in the year (Mummy got @130)

steve · 21/07/2017 at 23:40

Do I take Selwoods score as Captain?

or do i chuck it on Bont, Merrett, Titch, Neale or Docherty?

Cheers

    Finnius123 · 21/07/2017 at 23:46

    I am taking it – anything over 125 you have to cop. No point chasing the 15 points you missed with Danger.

      Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 06:25

      Agree. If your C gets an early injury you could drop 200 pts rather than 100.

bUCKET__ · 22/07/2017 at 00:01

Take Laird's 83, or have a punt at Witherden getting more?

Leaning towards taking the points in the bank, but the withered one could keep up the big scores against the Blues.

Steeeve · 22/07/2017 at 00:05

Greenwood is on my mid bench. Should I loop his score onto the field? My worst mids are Robbie Gray, Hanners, Fyfe, Treloar…

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 00:16

    Cut Robbie

      INPieman · 22/07/2017 at 07:48

      Agree with Hedski. The variance in Greys scores is crazy

        Steeeve · 22/07/2017 at 09:39

        It has aged me a decade.
        Which will continue now as I loop Greenwood and Robbie scores a 150.

Rhys · 22/07/2017 at 00:13

Hey fellas, this is my first year in supercoach, and i was wondering (if im completely off tell me) Is it more value if you captain a player who gets 100-110 who is a P.O.D over captaining Danger who scores 140 but because your opponent has him, you don't get any point of difference because you and him get the same amount of point as opposed to a player he doesn't have that you captain who gets 110 for example, that means you get the full 220 without him getting any of it. What im saying is that if he VC's Danger and you have Danger, but don't VC him, he gets 280, and you get 140 which means technically, he only gets 140 extra over you, but if you have a guy he doesn't, you get 220 points if he scores 110, and your opponent doesn't get any which in my opinion, means an extra 80 points. Now, if your VC scores say 50 odd, then yes, it's a bad idea, but if he scores decent, isn't it a smart move? Sorry, if i didn't word it properly, just something i've been looking at playing for the first time.

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 00:50

    Take Danger mate, you'd need a 130+ pod against your opponents pod scoring 90 to make a real difference. Hope that your other players outscore theirs.

    Browncow · 22/07/2017 at 00:52

    You are overthinking this Rhys. POD operates in reverse also. If your opponents captain scores 20 points more than yours then you are 20 points worse off. The double points thing you are thinking about doesn't work as you both have 22 players – think of your bonus captains points as player 23 rather than doubling the captains score.

      Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 06:23

      Great way to look at it. We should start that convention, i.e. I have played 7 this week for 765 (rather than 6 for 765 including Captain score)

    Whatyasmokin · 22/07/2017 at 10:35

    You're completely off haha

    Rocket Surgery · 22/07/2017 at 10:42

    You can't control your opponents score at all. You want to get the highest score you possibly can from your team. Your captain score is doubled so you want to have your biggest scorer as captain.

    I can't see any need to make it any more difficult than that. Your theory makes the "Duckworth Lewis" plan look sensible and simple

Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 06:35

I have the following options to bench in my mids: Wallis, Dahlhaus, Kennedy, Treloar. Which?

As I loopholed both Sloane and Greenwood, I'm only covered for a late mid out up till this bench option. Treloar gives full coverage as he's my last playing mid.

On current form I'm leaning to benching Dahl, however suspect the dogs could go large today against an undermanned Suns. Hence thinking Treloar might be valid.

    The Ranger · 22/07/2017 at 08:38

    You'd think Treloar might step up with Pendles out…I'd be leaning toward Dahl

      Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 08:42

      Cheers

    DacZawson · 22/07/2017 at 08:45

    Personally would go Wallis

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 10:07

    For me, its a toss up between Wallis and Dahlhaus.

Shannon · 22/07/2017 at 07:10

I would like to loophole Greenwood who is in my forward line who should I put on the pine out of Macrae, Buddy, The Nank, Wallis, The Bont, or Lynch from the Suns. I am leaning towards Lynch but your thoughts would be appreciated.

Shannon · 22/07/2017 at 08:05

Thanks for re confirming my thoughts picked him up cheap and he's done bugger all apart from lose money.

    INPieman · 22/07/2017 at 08:54

    Did the same. Banned for life

Alby · 22/07/2017 at 08:08

Looking at trading out Newman moving Adams from the mid to back, Iam thinking of getting in either Wines or Ebert can't decide who, Iam about to flip a coin.

    INPieman · 22/07/2017 at 08:55

    Wines. Ebert can get run with roles & go sub 60

FEARTHEBEARD · 22/07/2017 at 08:57

Happy I kept Sloanedog today 🙂

    Steeeve · 22/07/2017 at 09:40

    Stick. With. Your. Premos!

Neverweaken · 22/07/2017 at 09:46

So I have greenwood on the mid bench. Who out of Murphy, Gibbs, Kelly, Bont, Grey or Treloar do I bench. Guessing Grey. Although maybe Kelly. Richmond has done well last couple of weeks shutting down players. Grey then Zorko

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 09:59

    Tough decision that. You definately need to grab Greenwood's 103. I think it would have to be Robbie Gray. Kelly is may not cop the attention from the Tigers like Zorko did last week. GWS has a more potent midfield that Brisbane. Instead of going after Kelly, the tigers might target Callan Ward, Dylan Shiel, Tom Scully, or even Toby Greene. Leave Kelly on the field.

    Pman · 22/07/2017 at 10:21

    Robbie Gray….he is the least consistent of that list.

    InTheNickofTime · 22/07/2017 at 10:25

    I've got the same issue – who to get rid of out of JJK, Treloar, Merrett, Ebert, Lloyd and Fyfe?

Neverweaken · 22/07/2017 at 09:49

Also. Have 5 trades left. Do I trade out Newman and put Withendon in Defence?

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 09:52

    You want to trade Newman out for Witherden?

      Neverweaken · 22/07/2017 at 10:15

      Have Withendon in midfield bench

    Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 11:18

    Witherden is solid def bench cover if that's what you are asking. Also, just weigh up if you are giving up mid to def connection, you need to factor in cost of reduced flexibility. Being able to play Witherden on field and swinging Adams/Lloyd into mid for injury cover is valuable at this stage of year.

Neverweaken · 22/07/2017 at 09:51

Do like Sloan but the risk if he's tagged. He's either 125+ or 70

    Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 11:19

    He was tagged for periods last night by Selwood and Blicavs. Whilst he won't go 170 each week I think we are looking at him returning to 100+ rather than 80s

TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 10:20

Its another super Saturday!! Bring it on.

Brett Eddy gets some time on the field in my forward line and because he is doing so well in the magoos, I will give him the captaincy as well. Gotta cheer the kid up a bit. Deserves a recall.

Eddy will help me get Danger's 142 VC score and Greenwood's 103. BANG BANG!!

Plonking Ryder on the RUC bench today with the E on him. If he delivers, then will put Stradnica on the field and move Nankervis forward. Then I will have to decide who to put on the field up forward between Nankervis and Tom J Lynch. Probably toss Lynch on the pine as he will get bugger all service with the likes of Ablett missing. If Ryder screws up then will leave the Nank at R2 and Tom J Lynch stays on the field.

Another fun day of loopholing coming up folks!

Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 10:58

I've been suffering the Lynch pain all season. That one choice of him over McRae from the start is the difference between top 50 and 300 which would have left me still in the hunt.

    Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 11:04

    And just checked, if I hadn't made the Cripps trade which also cost me a late out Kennedy donut I'd be 25th. Shows how you just need to dodge all the falling knives in this caper which has some science, but a lot more luck involved at the pointy end. That's what makes it so interesting and keeps you coming back.

POTS · 22/07/2017 at 13:20

Have Pendles on bench with Steele on ground in MID. Have a $179K bank.
The dilemma I have is to trade Pendles or Steele??
Trading Pendles means I can loophole Steele/Withers. Trading Steele means no bench this week but can wait on Pendles (and his $497K price tag).

Cats Fan · 22/07/2017 at 19:16

Take Lynch 80 or put Koby Stevens on field

NickMacMan · 22/07/2017 at 22:52

Got greenwood 103 as emergency, do i take treloar or murphy off? Or back them both to get 103?

Tyruddanaut · 23/07/2017 at 13:35

The ruck selections next year are going to be great. Nic Nat, Gawn will both be around 500k mark

Tyruddanaut · 23/07/2017 at 17:52

Good on ya Carlton. How did you manage to bring in 5 absolutely s***house players. Rebuild my a***. You don't get beaten by Brisbane by this much and still have dignity
