pick one
ryan to Hurley and 75k in the bank
ryan to z merrett and 38k in the bank
mountford to either Hurley or z merrett but not much in the bank

    Whatyasmokin · 22/07/2017 at 10:38

    Would have to see your team honestly.

      Sam · 22/07/2017 at 10:51

      Def: Doc, Adams, Laird, Rance, Hibberd, Lloyd (Ryan, M Hibberd)
      Mid: Danger, Titch, Jelwood, JPK, Treloar, Bont, Pendles, Fyfe, (Mountford, Witherden, Bayok)
      Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (Strnadica)
      Fwd: Macrae, Yeo, Dahl, Lynch, Nank, Buddy (Greenwood, Eddy)

        Wedge · 22/07/2017 at 10:54

        Trade pendles to merrett

        SC_Kev7 · 22/07/2017 at 10:58

        Nice looking team, Sam. I'd go Hurley mate. Rance and Hibberd can be a bit iffy at times, looping them with a premo D7 would be handy.

        If you went Zachy you'd lose your def/mid swing

          Sam · 22/07/2017 at 11:15

          I'd still have Witherden as a swing, do u think Hurley can rly continue his form being a defender, surely Merrett will score more points

            SC_Kev7 · 22/07/2017 at 11:39

            Ryan – Zerrett would mean Witherden to D7

            I think he will too, all depends on how you want to build your team. Much harder to get an in form defender loopholing at D7 than it is to get a mid at M9. At the moment you can swing Adams/Lloyd with Witherden if you have any mid trouble down the line, Hurley at D7 would leave your defence still strong if you had to

            Your choice + trades available as to which you feel is better

TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 10:32

Agreed Jock. Jellwood after a slow start came home like a bat out of hell!! Sloane was very very good. Must be able to convince me more that he can in fact break the hard tag. Still Jellwood and Sloane owners will be happy chappies this morning!

    Whatyasmokin · 22/07/2017 at 10:41

    Sloane, Danger, Greenwood and the Pendles to Selwood trade is a cracking start to the weekend going to be some good scores this week if things don't fall apart like usual……..

pistol27 · 22/07/2017 at 10:36

SC site says sharenberg is playing? Any news there?

    SC_Kev7 · 22/07/2017 at 11:00

    Nothing I've heard, the SC site isn't exactly the greatest reference tool

    BlueNath · 22/07/2017 at 11:26

    Its a sign from the SC gods

    B T · 22/07/2017 at 12:48

    He isn't named in the Pies side.

    Adam Simpson · 22/07/2017 at 14:08

    WTF is Shaz playing or not? I need to trade if he's not playing.

      hedski · 22/07/2017 at 14:44

      Named as an emergency Simmo, unless he is a late in he's out.

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 14:54

        They left the green dot on him on the SC team page…just to confuse people lol

TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 10:55

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 as an extra reward. Gotta cheer the kid up a bit. Deserves a recall alright.

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

Today will be 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 breaks down or 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!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/07/2017 at 11:14

    Good plan great minds hawk ….

    hedski · 22/07/2017 at 11:19

    Love some loophole action TH, Tuohy and Greenwood both came thru with the goods last night, get that E off and jump on field lads, Lynch gets the treatment today, fair chance he'll stay put on the bench with a spuddly effort, time will tell, Pendles gets the armband this week (Danger vc and Greenwoods scores), first thing he's done right for a few weeks now.

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 12:04

    gonna loop lynch also could go big but suss without god

      Shake n bake · 22/07/2017 at 12:40

      The only talls the dogs have down back are Cordy & Young! Lynch & 2 Metre might go alright.

Wal · 22/07/2017 at 10:56

Last midfield spot, 5 trades remaining…

Fisher to Beams or Ryan/Scharenberg to Nyhauis and Fisher to Ebert?

    Wedge · 22/07/2017 at 11:20

    I would punt on beams and save one trade

      Wal · 22/07/2017 at 12:21

      Cheers Wedge, really want to but gee I'm a bit worried about him holding up for the rest of the year

Locked and Loaded · 22/07/2017 at 11:03

Best midfielder for remainder of the season? Titch, Merrett, Josh Kelly, Zorko, Wines as a POD?

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 12:04

    tich then merrett

SC_Kev7 · 22/07/2017 at 11:07

A bit off topic, but worth mentioning. The draftstars $15 Saturday contest has a money back offer this week if you beat Barry. His team was pretty average last week. His Jezza Cameron late out didn't help but I still beat him by 113 with injuries to Hibberd (9 points) and May (10).

Contest pays out to 400th and I reckon some of our Academy and Graduates guns could clean up!

    BlueNath · 23/07/2017 at 09:37

    And did anyone?

Rivo · 22/07/2017 at 11:10

Thank you Jock for your great wisdoms on the pre-game chat last night!

1. Traded Pendles to Jelwood ✔️
2. Held Sloane for big score ✔️
3. Danger VC loop for Captain ✔️
4. Matt Crouch beast score ✔️
5. Greeenwood M8 with 103 ✔️

Rapt with the start, hoping for the luck to continue.

hedski · 22/07/2017 at 11:14

Thinking of flicking Newman for Titch but I'm a bit worried he will cop the Suban tag and get his worst score for the year the week I bring him in…am I being paranoid? Pull the trigger?

    Northerner · 22/07/2017 at 11:44

    His possies are bottom of pack clearance handballs that rely on outside runners. I think he's low chance of being tagged.

    The Ranger · 22/07/2017 at 12:17

    It's a no brainer Hedski. I'd jump at the chance to do that trade if I could.

      hedski · 22/07/2017 at 14:07

      Pulled the trigger Ranger, the deed is done, good luck for the round.

ahmad rubas · 22/07/2017 at 11:51

anyone that didnt bring selwood in this week or traded sloane out this week?

    BlueNath · 22/07/2017 at 12:00

    Hated that everyone else was grabbing Jelwood too, but he was a must have at that price

      ahmad rubas · 22/07/2017 at 12:46

      thats what i thought as well but didnt know who to trade out and with only 4 trades left wanted to wait till finals but after yesterday performance looks like a mistake by me

    Stu · 22/07/2017 at 18:01

    Didnt bring Jelwood in – instead went Ebert as a POD. Friendly draw for the final weeks.

      ahmad rubas · 22/07/2017 at 18:38

      good pod tonned up today

Jordan · 22/07/2017 at 11:57

I have three trades left and need to trade Goldstein which would leave me with two trades. Do I trade or not?and if do I get Mumford or Gawn

    Shake n bake · 22/07/2017 at 12:45

    I went Mummy and banked $70k

      neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 13:29

      good move shake Jacobs and mummy are 1 and 2

        Shake n bake · 22/07/2017 at 13:35

        Just think he has the easiest run against other rucks in the run in.

Jim_bob321 · 22/07/2017 at 12:03

Lets hope Ebert does well

BrownlowBoy · 22/07/2017 at 12:55

Best mid to bring in?
Already have Danger, Selwood, Merrett, Bontempelli, Treloar, Kennedy, Fyfe

Was worried about Titch receiving more attention from now on.

    bUCKET__ · 22/07/2017 at 13:04

    Can't go wrong with Titch.

    I'm trying to decide between Dusty, Neale, and Kelly. But at this stage of the season there's not going to be too much between whomever you choose. Go with your gut

    Jake.B · 24/07/2017 at 10:35


Imgonnalose · 22/07/2017 at 13:10

Hey fellas I need a downgrade for my final upgrade, who is there to downgrade to?

    Imgonnalose · 22/07/2017 at 13:14

    Preferably a mid

      Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 13:31

      No good options in the midfield currently. If you think you have ample cover for the season then jut bring in a donut loophole. Otherwise just try to get Young or Nyhuis

      garfield_da_cat · 24/07/2017 at 11:51


Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 13:28

Looking for some advice regarding Pendles this week community.
Here is my team:
Just wondering if I should still go with the planned trade of Pendles to Ebert and then sub off Nank or Dahlhaus to take Greenwoods score.
I could possibly gain an extra 50 points from this move and Pendles didn't look good before he injured himself. Thoughts?

    qwert · 22/07/2017 at 13:31

    Ebert in…Nank to the bench for Greenwood is what I would do.

      Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 19:01

      Well I benched Dahl and ended up losing points

qwert · 22/07/2017 at 13:30

Shaw or Newman to Hurley???

    Jake.B · 24/07/2017 at 10:37

    Newman. I did Newman to Docherty though think McVeigh has taken Newman's spot back and Newman may even get dropped soon. If you have witherden on the bench you could loophole him and Shaw to get the better score.

SCdonkey · 22/07/2017 at 13:36

Thank goodness for DPPs managed to get a full team this week. With Gaz and Pendle on the bench can't afford to trade any as I'm really low on trades. Gonna be grinding it hard from here to the end of season.

Woohoo cracked the 2400 points last week, was pretty rapt. Hopefully i will crack it this week again.

Jock old mate, i think Crouch should get a mention this weeks podcast don't ya think? His score of 134 last night and his 8th tonne in a row.

    Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 13:39

    Jock has had Crouch since the start of the year. He should be very happy with his output as of late.

Jim · 22/07/2017 at 13:39

Having Danger, Sloane and Pendles going into last night had me worried, but with Greenwood as E for Pendles now it turned out alright! Question is, I doubt Pendles will come back next week or hit any form, so should I Trade him out to Titch or Zerrett? Also considering waiting a week and getting Dusty in cheap for Pendles. Thoughts?

Relton · 22/07/2017 at 13:45

Riteo gents! greenwood pulled out a HUGE 100+ for me had the E on him. so i need to bench nank, dahlhaus or T.Lynch. which is it?

    Jim · 22/07/2017 at 13:48

    T Lynch, GC missing a lot of mids including Ablett, and Lynch has put in some bloody crap scores without them. At least Nank and Dahl you can count on going at least 60+ even on a bad day

    Jarmo · 22/07/2017 at 14:34

    Yeah agreed on lynch. his bad days are BAD

Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 13:53

So far so good Dooms day was a great day 766 from 5, C has played, lets see what Saturday holds

    INPieman · 22/07/2017 at 14:46

    Smashing start Stirlsy. All seems to go well till shit the bed Sunday rolls around

Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 14:33

The magnificent bearded specimen is back without the beard. Welcome back Gawny. Looks like the man makes the beard not the beard makes the man

    GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 14:41

    He is taking Ryder to school atm haha

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/07/2017 at 10:04

    Viney in makes a big difference that and gawn has now played 3 and good to go.

GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 14:43

The big Gawn is back! 43 at QTR time 🙂

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 15:01

    Might have to pick him up next week if Goldy doesn't get up..Jessie Hogan looks back to his best too..good on him.

      GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 15:15

      Hibberd on 70 at HT also 🙂 melbourne players looking the goods today!

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 15:17

        Hibberd from North's doing really well for me too…I reckon he'll end up on about 103 🙂

    Jose · 22/07/2017 at 17:45

    Great week to forget to put the E on him! Fml

Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 14:55

Port Adealaide getting absolutely smoked by Melbourne…wow.

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 15:40

    Half to go and port will challenge hard They have a lot of players down where as the Dees are up such as Hogan and GAWN

      Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 16:22

      Good call

Whatyasmokin · 22/07/2017 at 15:04

Who wouldve thought Myers on more points than Merrett at halftime.

POTS · 22/07/2017 at 15:15

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).

Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 15:20

Magic Door could keep Goldy out of the side next week the way he's going!…doh, maybe welcome to Gawny.

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 15:38

    Magic Door best yet Russty is it yours

      Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 16:04

      Cheers mate, Go Dees!…hope they can hang on!

    JohndJames · 22/07/2017 at 15:48

    Max looks like he's back.

      Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 15:50

      Looks like he is injured now… We all jinxed it

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 16:04

        Bummer nooo, say it isn't so

          Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 16:06

          Hes back on but missed most of the third quarter

Gjlane123 · 22/07/2017 at 15:23

I have shai Bolton in forward line he's listed as an emergency want to loophole greenwoods score and put Tom lynch gc on the bench nervous shai Bolton will get a late call up. Could swap struandica for nank to garrentee but would prefer to have lynch on the bench rather than nank any suggestions ?

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 16:28

    Stick with your plan…worst thing that could happen is you lose 30 or 40 points if he does play.

      Gjlane123 · 22/07/2017 at 17:02

      Thanks for the input mate ! Panicked and chucked lynch on last minute haha hopefully not big difference between him and nank

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 17:33

        Lynch's going ok mate, hopefully he can crack the tonne for ya 🙂

          Gjlane123 · 23/07/2017 at 14:43

          Thanks mate he had a good first half played off half back for a bit ! Nank having a rough day perhaps lucky went with lynch !

Dasha · 22/07/2017 at 15:24

Who to field out of nank and Riewoldt?

Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 15:24

Who I bench from the following?
Nank, Dahl, Hanners, Treloar
Leaning towards Dahl currently

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 15:31

    If you went by 3 round's gotta be Dahl, mid 70's

Derek · 22/07/2017 at 16:02

Yep. Bought Wingard into my team this week.

    GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 16:03

    Looks like he may be out for a while… that did not look good at all

    Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 16:09

    Looks like they are preparing from him to get back on. I hope he gets back on for ya

      Derek · 22/07/2017 at 17:08

      Got back on. Gave away a free and left.

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 16:18

    Bummer Derek…bad break mate.

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 18:13

    Cant take a trick Derek Bit of advice from a trier mate you are just too loyal The two blokes you love are just unreliable and I have had both never again though I speak of CYRIL and WINGARD I play you in a crunch game next week and am worried a lot

      Derek · 22/07/2017 at 18:38

      I just don't like the key forwards, always looking for the midfielders with fwd status. Chad wasn't having a good game but was scoring ok today.

      Problem I have is only 4 trades left and still have to upgrade Darcy at R2 and maybe Pendles. Although I have Greenwood covering for Pendles this week.

      I need to win a few matches this week to stay alive, otherwise next week won't matter.

        neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 19:46

        rucks have been unusual all year I had sandi witts then witty ryder coupled with Nank so pretty happy even Soldo is half decent Didn't you have Cameron .Still think the best combo is Gawn /mummy with ryder alas I cant have them

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 21:58

        Might not have to upgrade Darcy Derek…you could hold for a bit and see if he keeps getting decent scores.

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 01:07

    OMG annus horribilis 4 u! Sorry to hear it.

JohndJames · 22/07/2017 at 16:14

Wow Hibbo is going big for the Dees 116 at 3qt.

Jim_bob321 · 22/07/2017 at 16:48

Bloody hell Ollie Wines always gets robbed….

    Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 16:51

    Ebert got robbed also

hedski · 22/07/2017 at 17:30

Got the big E on Lynch Donks, if he keeps it up gonna be a tough call who to bench.
Rooey, Nank, Hill or Stef…

Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 17:35

Community you can thank me for bringing Dahlhaus back into form. I took one for the team and benched him.

JohndJames · 22/07/2017 at 17:38

Who do you think is the best trade in for Sandy after today,Big Max or Kreuzer.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 17:56

    Big Max ran into some injury trouble, despite playing a lot better. If Gawn's injury is superficial, and plays next week, then I would go the big Max. He is bloody great value. If his injury turns out to be more severe, probably best to pay the coin and go with Kruezer.

      JohndJames · 22/07/2017 at 21:19

      Sound advice TOPHAWK1,that's the way I was thinking as well.

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 18:01

    Hey John, Maxy looked pretty good and scored well considering he only played about 3 quarters.
    Didn't like the look of the strapping all the way up his leg though, wait and see what they say about his leg next week I guess.

      JohndJames · 22/07/2017 at 21:16

      Heh Russty,I did like the look of Maxy when he was on the ground,it was the fact,like you said,that he was off the ground for around a whole quarter that worried me,have been holding on to Sandy waiting for Max to get better and bottom out in price.If he's going to have an injury cloud over him though,I might have to think about Kruezer.

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 21:55

        Hey John, yeah it'd be a real shame if Maxy has an injury now…when he's just getting back in form, reckon I'll go to Kreuzer too if Goldy stays dropped next week.

Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 17:38

Watching Peel Thunder play Subiaco over here in WA… There is a kid called Norton who looks a ready made player, played in the under 18 national carnival and is doing well in this game in the backline.
Subi are a big bodied team and the kid is holding his own down back taking 4 intercept marks so far in first half…
Bennell has had 1 touch and not in this game, no way he plays for freo this year on what his showing today.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 17:54

    Good stuff Stirlsy!! You at the game or is it on channel 7 Perth?

      Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 18:03

      Im down in Bunbury Hawk the games at Peel about 70mins from here yep tv for me, Ryan got smashed in ribs just b4 HT dont think he will be back today.

        TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 18:15

        I have been to Bunbury many times. Parents got a holiday house in Busselton. The game is down at Rushton Park in Mandurah.
        Looks like Luke Ryan will not play for Freo for a while, going by that injury today.

          Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 18:48

          He is ok Hawk still going in hard so likely be right to go Bennell up to 5 touches 3 early in last, managed game time just over a half.

Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 17:45

Luke Ryan just got smashed with a knee to the ribs, very sore coming off ground, could easy be broken

    Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 18:09

    Ryan is ok and back on ground

      ahmad rubas · 22/07/2017 at 18:26

      is he likely to play next week?

        Stirlsy · 22/07/2017 at 18:45

        He's played ok nothing flash, Peel are getting beaten only 14pts now early in last…. id say it would depend how freo go tomoz if he gets back in, he seems ok after the knee to ribs

Shake n bake · 22/07/2017 at 17:49

Like l said Lynch & Wright didn't come up against much Cordy and Young.

    neil demons delight · 22/07/2017 at 18:04

    Both are talented though shake though only first game for the lad

TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 17:51

Yep. Myself included. Put the Nank on the field over Lynch. Looks like that one is turning into a dud call. Talk about Lynch being a Jekyll and Hyde type player!!

Joshua · 22/07/2017 at 18:06

What is going on with Bont?!! I have Lynch on the bench and even he is doing better than him

BrownlowBoy · 22/07/2017 at 18:06

Bont is not moving well.

TOPHAWK1 · 22/07/2017 at 18:38

74SC for Tom Lynch at 3 quarter time. If he can snag a couple of goals in the last quarter he can still tonne up easily. Could go either way.

    Cogla13 · 23/07/2017 at 07:37

    Finished on 77.

GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 18:41

Wow Bont… my first Flop for the weekend…

Marcus · 22/07/2017 at 19:09

When your having the best week of the year, trade jj in to not cop a 0 and leave him on the bench

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:21

    How come you left him on the bench…did life interfere with your supercoach?

      Marcus · 23/07/2017 at 10:20

      Yes I was out all day and didn't realise. Pray for a shaz late in

SCdonkey · 22/07/2017 at 19:10

Pretty happy with Lynch 80 I'll take that, he joins with Laird 83 the only two players so far under 100. Have 10 out of 12 players scored 100+ so far.

    Leeds17 · 23/07/2017 at 10:14

    Solid start for sure, I've got half a dozen players who have scored between 80-96 well under their projections.

Joshua · 22/07/2017 at 19:20

Pretty happy with himself telling my friend to take a punt on a cheap Johannisen. Was 350k and has scored 83 and 102 since he has brought him in.

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:20

    Hope your friend doesn't beat you in your league in the finals Josh lol

      Joshua · 22/07/2017 at 23:42

      Versing him this week and probably will first week of finals. Smashing him though so no problems here haha. I'm 2 and he's 7.

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:46

        If he makes the 8, don't think he can't smash your ass in the finals, don't give him too good advice lol

          Joshua · 23/07/2017 at 01:06

          First year so I've been helping him out, let's hope the student doesn't beat the teacher 😉

Finnius123 · 22/07/2017 at 19:40

not supercoach relevant – but how good is lewis melican? Absolute stalwart in defence for someone so young.

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:01

    Seems like a good young player with a cool head on his shoulders.

    BlueNath · 22/07/2017 at 22:13

    Agree. And a very relevant SC/footy comment

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 01:05

    Was very relevant a rookie when he was bubbling…. people just chose others, as I did. I chose Parson's and EVW. Just imagine I move Adams to mids for a few weeks and slot Melican in down back….. he did have rnd 13 off… not sure it was the correct call or not… I told myself pre-season I'd buy him, and when push came to shove, I didn't. Bit disappointed in myself.

GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 19:52

Hows everyone going so far this week?
Im 1,350 from 11 taking Selwood as captain.

    Iamme · 22/07/2017 at 20:35

    1,122 from 8 Its looking like a monster round, I'm currently projected at 2516…but we all know how that can change.

      GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 20:54

      Haha yeah only takes a few flop premos. Franklin is looking like one of those tonight

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 20:59

    Sitting on 1560 with 6 in play and 6 yet to play..hopefully a good score?…but who can say lol

      Finnius123 · 22/07/2017 at 21:33

      You sure you have done that maths right? 2560 with 12 to play leaves you on 2700 if all of your players get a bit less than a ton

        Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 21:53

        Hey Finn…nah it was six in play now with 6 yet to play, so presently, I'm on 1765 with 6 yet to play 🙂

          GloryDays90 · 22/07/2017 at 21:57

          Bloody hell. Franklin, Roberton and Kennedy all in the 80s and 90s…:(

            Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:00

            I feel your pain GD…Lloyd, Heeney, Franklin, Kennedy and Fyfe for me…all in the 70's and 80's ugh!

            Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:04

            That being said , pretty happy with my two new recruits this week though, Selwood and Mitchell..both paid nice dividends 🙂

    Defying_Madness · 22/07/2017 at 22:43

    1709 with 7 players left. My 5 Sydney players let me down with 80's. If only I benched Franklin or Nank over Dahlhaus my score would be better.

      Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:16

      You should still crack a big ole score this week, Heaps of guys had the Spudly Sydney crew..including me.

    Iamme · 22/07/2017 at 23:05

    Now up to 1510 with 10 to play Kreuzer, Doc, Adams, Trealor, Yeo, Rocky, Witherden, Dusty, Nank and Shawy to play.

      Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:09

      Could be a week highest score for you this week mate…good luck!

        Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 10:05

        Thanks for that mate. I've been studying my SC history and in 2015 1 week I got 2588 and finished 53rd for the round…so at this time of year I'm sure there will be better line-ups than mine. I'm also not quite full premo yet either, as I still have Witherden on field.

    ahmad rubas · 22/07/2017 at 23:07

    1378 from 13 with captaincy already used on danger vc loopholed with strnadica 9 to play projected for 2284

Joshua · 22/07/2017 at 22:11

Cannot wait to get Mitchell in!

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 22:37

    What are you waiting for?

      Joshua · 22/07/2017 at 22:53

      Haha, Witherden to appreciate in cash. First week of finals he will definitely be in my side. Maybe even next week.

SCdonkey · 22/07/2017 at 23:05

Sitting at 1830 out of 16, still have Dusty, Simmo, Mummy, Yeo, Shaw and Witherden to play. Hopefully i get to crack 2400 points for the 2nd week in a row.

How's everyone else travelling so far?

    Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:14

    I'm slightly worse off than you Donk…1804 with Rance, Nank, Adams, Doch, Yeo and Soldo to play…Soldo lol, hope he has a career game!

      neil demons delight · 23/07/2017 at 06:23

      good luck Rusty same players except I have WITHER Soldo on my bench Hope you go well today cheers

    neil demons delight · 23/07/2017 at 06:19

    1882 out of 16 Donc with 6 left best yet but sunday to come One opponent is nearly level going be some big scores if Collingwood fire

    Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 06:24

    I'm looking like low to mid 2500. I'm hoping Howe has one of his big games as he's a bit of a pod and if he pulls out a 130 with a 77 projected it could push me over 2600. Was looking really good before the Sydney crew's scores.

    The scoring has been really deep this week. If I include first bench cover scores, this week might go down as my goat. I have 115, 87 and 77 sitting on pine with Witherden to come.

    Tommo09 · 23/07/2017 at 08:14

    1828 (C) from 16
    Mummy Witherden Doch Simpson Adams and Rocky left to play
    Hoping for 2300-2400

Russty_ · 22/07/2017 at 23:10

I punted Pendles for him this week, pretty happy with his score 🙂

    SCdonkey · 22/07/2017 at 23:15

    I thought about it. Pendle and Ablett is sitting on the Pine will come in handy later on. i can always offload 1 to an uber premo if needed.

Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 06:38

Gawn looked very good other than his injury concern. Could have gone large with more TOG. He'll be sub $460k this week still with a ~120 BE until his 57 cycles out. I'm hoping he is fit, proves himself one more week and you'll still make money going from Witts. Going into finals with a fit Gawn and Kruezer combo would be nice. How good has Witts been. So consistent. The rookie pick of the season for mine.

    INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 11:38

    Witts is just about the most reliable player going around

    Derek · 23/07/2017 at 12:38

    His leg didn't look good. I'd be worried about him missing next week.

Richard · 23/07/2017 at 09:30

Dear Ross Lyon ,When are you leaving Fremantle FC?

    Leeds17 · 23/07/2017 at 10:07

    68% time on ground for Neale what the serious fudge Ross?

      Rosco · 23/07/2017 at 11:09

      Neale must be carrying a niggle. Because 68% game time for one of your elite mids is stupidity. And yes I'm salty because I traded him in.

        Top Gun · 23/07/2017 at 16:58

        I had the vc on him after forgetting about Danger and then missing it by 5 mins. Fortunate that I had the c on Dusty.

BlueNath · 23/07/2017 at 09:35

With Pendles out, I'm hoping that helps Adams and Trelors scoring. Will be interesting to see if more Mid time continues to effect the Doch too. Surely Zorko the magnificent goes big today? Can Rocky join him? I also have a gut feeling the Tigers are going to have a good day. A respectable 90 from Nank? Martin 140? Cotch 120? Rance 95? Kelly 115?

I know a lot of people are projected for some big scores. And for once I think Sunday will produce good output from our SC premo's. But there must be a twist somewhere from the SC gods!?

    Derek · 23/07/2017 at 12:37

    Docherty didn't have that much midfield time last week, I thought he would get more with Cripps out. Maybe it was just a match up thing.

    Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 14:13

    Nanscrevice is the twist this week…spudding it!

    Top Gun · 23/07/2017 at 16:59

    Nank the Stank is killing me!

Stewy_the_Swan · 23/07/2017 at 09:47

Who scores the least today?… Simpson, Howe or Witherden?

    Ja191 · 23/07/2017 at 10:13

    Have a feeling howe will get a forward tag similar to the one vs the hawks id say Howe on that

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 10:13

    Witherden. Because he is on my bench with the E on him. I am practising what I am preaching. Your call though. Witherden after 3 stellar weeks may come down to a earth a bit at some point. be happy if he produces you an 80.

    Don't Blush Baby · 23/07/2017 at 10:20

    On current form you would say Howe

Bdog · 23/07/2017 at 09:50

Am I crazy going Kelly or Docherty C over Danger who I have VC on Hoping for something special to try and break away from the pack sitting inside the 100

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 10:10

    Batshit crazy mate. Do not do it. The odds of someone like the Doc/Kelly scoring 180 today (which is the minimum he has to score for your move to be worthwhile) is very very small. For the sake of 80 odd points, the risks FAR outweigh the benefits. Cheers

    Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 10:14

    High risk for potentially high reward, but, if I was you i'd go the safe route and keep Paddy's 142. You are top 100 after all, so you will still be in with a show and remember you have 5 more rounds to catch up. Do you still have trades?

      Bdog · 23/07/2017 at 10:27

      Have 3 trades left looking to move Pendlebury for Dusty or Zerrett next week projected is 2550 with Doch as skip

        Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 10:35

        Well if you do decide to go that route Doc is your best bet…. But I look at it this way, I reckon a lot of the top 100 are now without any trades….So you will gain some ground this week anyway, even with Dangers score as Capt. Good luck with what ever you decide to do Bdog.

        Whatyasmokin · 23/07/2017 at 15:09

        Surely trading Pendlebury this week would have been a superior move to try and move up the ranks than risking a great captain's score………………..

Cogla13 · 23/07/2017 at 10:04

Gee, how big is the GWS v Richmond game today after Geelong and Port lost? A Richmond win would put them 4th on percentage behind GWS.

    Don't Blush Baby · 23/07/2017 at 10:22

    Yes huge, imagine if the Tigers had won those close games that they threw away, with one against the Giants – hopefully redemption day today

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 10:23

    This is a HUGE HUGE game for the Tigers. Today is the day they MUST announce to the AFL community that they are no longer "pretenders". If the Tigers come out asleep like they did a few weeks ago against the bombers, expect riots in the stands. The Tiger army will lose their minds.

    I hope the Tigs can pull it off and win today. If they win big, 40+ points, they might actually overtake GWS on percentage and sneak into 3rd, albeit this being highly unlikely.

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 10:24

      Correction. Asleep against St Kilda

        Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 14:34

        Dusty seems determined to drag them over the line this week.

andy_89 · 23/07/2017 at 11:49

Who to bench out of Rocky and Priddis today? Leaning towards Rocky, but anyone have reason to believe he'll get it together today?

    INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 12:38

    Hoping rocky can turn it around. But no confidence he can

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 00:59

    Hoped you benched Rocky, smitch was out, should have helped Priddis….but alas…

musicissport · 23/07/2017 at 12:00

Am in the lap of SC gods today – had VC on Titch and C on Adams, wanted to take Titch's score but forgot to put C on Strandica. So Adams will prob spud it up now.

NickMacMan · 23/07/2017 at 12:02

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

SC Connoisseur · 23/07/2017 at 12:32

RD 18:
Melbourne VS Port Adelaide:

Hitouts to Advantage:
M Gawn: 13/33
P Ryder: 15/48

Defying_Madness · 23/07/2017 at 13:28

Looks like the Nank has stank. Fielding Nank over Dahl may be one of the defining moments of my season

    GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 13:57

    He has been useless! Hasnt even touched the ball!

      Defying_Madness · 23/07/2017 at 14:01

      Agreed he has been drop worthy

    INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 14:05

    Starting to make tom lynch look good

      Defying_Madness · 23/07/2017 at 14:06

      Back down to 4 points after giving away 2 frees…. Gonna cost me league games and my rank. Will likely lose 80 points from my stupidity.

GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 13:33

Toby Green will be on holiday for 3 to 4 weeks again. Im trading him out this week, cant not punch people. What a THUG!

    andy_89 · 23/07/2017 at 13:35


    andy_89 · 23/07/2017 at 13:38

    I bet he's going to spend the rest of the game thinking about it too. Absolute dhead

    Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 13:41

    God, he just can't help himself can he?…idiot should've learned his lesson by now. Letting his team down bigtime.

      GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 13:46

      Yeah i agree. Definately not worth holding since he will be out for a minimum of 2 weeks

    Top Gun · 23/07/2017 at 17:36

    3-4 weeks? Lol. Very light love tap. One week maybe two depending upon his record.

gator59 · 23/07/2017 at 13:34

Dirty [email protected]#ing SPITTER!!

James T · 23/07/2017 at 13:36

Anyone else considering bringing in Callan Ward as a POD next week? Loving the form he's in right now

    Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 13:43

    No but I'm considering going to the game and shooting Nankervis and Soldo if they don't bloody do something!

      James T · 23/07/2017 at 13:56

      Hahaha mate I'm with you there. Nank needs to be taken behind the shed and dealt with, sick of his Nank stank

GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 14:43

15 now. Not much better but atleast double figures haha

Pman · 23/07/2017 at 14:57

Hi All…just logged in and with 5 mins to go in 3rd Qtr The Nank has 14 points WTF?? Is he injured or just stinking it up like nothing else? Time to turn him inot Paddy Ryder I think as he is cooked.

    Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 15:02

    Playing Footy like Herman Munster..him and his mate Soldo are spudding it bad.

    Whatyasmokin · 23/07/2017 at 15:06

    3 Qtr time 36 points.

    GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 15:35

    I know he hasnt been great today guys but it is pretty damn wet….

      Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 15:50

      Still, the wet weather didn't stop Mummy getting 107.

        GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 15:54

        Mummy is a seasoned ruck though.

          Moosehead · 23/07/2017 at 18:01

          And Nank is a hopeless ruck.

manolaki · 23/07/2017 at 15:20

Heath and Toby just cost me a league win. Thanks guys.

Now if Rocky gets 200 we may be in with a chance

    manolaki · 23/07/2017 at 15:25

    And to top it off Greene will get two weeks

      GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 15:35

      Im trading Greene… waste of space

Jim_bob321 · 23/07/2017 at 15:36

Need to get rid of Nank
As a ruck, only 72 TOG!!!!!
Maybe straight swap to Gawn

Steeeve · 23/07/2017 at 15:48

Went Pendles to Dusty. Wanted a pod but figured Dusty would storm home hunting a brownlow. Pretty happy with the decision so far. At least whoever I'm playing in finals with Dusty, we'll cancel each other out instead of me being at a disadvantage.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/07/2017 at 16:37

    Nice. Also happy with my two trades this week
    Parsons – Jelwood
    Pendles – Dusty.

    Nailed em both.

      Defying_Madness · 23/07/2017 at 16:56

      I was 6k off going Pendles to Dusty and ended up getting Ebert. Went Parsons to jelwood also

Joshua · 23/07/2017 at 15:50

Shaw 83-good enough for me
Greene is going for a holiday the bloody hothead
Nank to Gawn or Kreuzer might have to happen
Dusty….. you are an absolute legend

Defying_Madness · 23/07/2017 at 15:53

Nank to JJK this week anyone?

    Jim_bob321 · 23/07/2017 at 16:01

    Yep nice POD move especially if West Coast want to make the top 8!

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 16:33

    Starting to look that way. Have not traded this week as I only have the 4 trades, but the Nank looks like he is out of gas.

IntheNickofTime · 23/07/2017 at 16:41

How quickly things can change from one week to the next – last week I was closer to 2450, and with 16 players played so far only 4 have tonned up. Surely I can't be the only one?

    Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 16:59

    Thought I was gonna have a good one, until the Tigers played…will be lucky to get 2200 now. Typical Sunday lol

GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 17:17

I think Docherty might actually score under 100 this week….

    Moosehead · 23/07/2017 at 17:58

    Good. I might be able to afford him. Go the mighty Magpies.

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 00:57

    Pay the price. It's nearly finals time kids!

Top Gun · 23/07/2017 at 17:44

Zorko going nuts. Tonned up by half time again. Woweeeeeeeeee!

Hoggett · 23/07/2017 at 17:59

How weak are WCE. No hope of winning a premiership at the MCG. Pathetic effort.

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 18:04

    Eagles were mentally soft in that last quarter. Very costly loss that.

TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 18:02

Yeo should get his arrse whooped after that miss in the last quarter. Could have run on further and made sure of the goal. Instead he got cute and missed. Cost the eagles the game.

    BrownlowBoy · 23/07/2017 at 18:05

    Big miss, but can't just blame Yeo. Duggan had 0 awareness in the middle of the ground before being run down to De Goey.

      Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 19:35

      A couple of the young guys made some crucial mistakes at the wrong time. Don't mind them getting that experience and learning from it. Yeo should be better than that though he's had enough games behind him. With winnable games in the next three the Eagles could have kept a tilt alive. No longer. Good signs from Sheed early but ran out of legs late when it mattered. They need to play their youth and set themselves up for next year as they will need to turn over their heavy weighting of long in tooth players. Burn has been sensational last 2 weeks. Leading from the front.

        Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 19:36

        Hurn. Not Burn

Joshua · 23/07/2017 at 18:05

I wanted McKay cheap :(, at least we have signs of a good future lol. Absolutely insipid effort by the blues today.

    Joshua · 23/07/2017 at 18:28

    Next year wanted to pick him up I mean. Also blues on a bit of a comeback

Dan · 23/07/2017 at 18:20

Does anyone know what's going on with Rocky? I.e. whether he's off injured or just having a bad game?

    SCdonkey · 23/07/2017 at 18:32

    Tagging role

    INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 18:32

    He's clearly hampered by the shoulder & a complete spud

    manolaki · 23/07/2017 at 18:42

    Joke. My whole team has become a joke. Led by Rocky.

    Ben · 23/07/2017 at 19:16

    He did a good job on Gibbs. Sadly no good for SC

    Dan · 23/07/2017 at 19:16

    Thanks for that!
    Wow, that's another shocker! I was hoping he'd score better against Carlton.

    BlueNath · 23/07/2017 at 19:24

    He was actually fantastic at stopping Gibbs today. I think he'll continue in that roll to protect his shoulders. Not good news for his SC output

BrownlowBoy · 23/07/2017 at 19:04

Brisbane need to keep all these kids together. They got talent.

Finnius123 · 23/07/2017 at 19:04

Picking Zorko over Rocky in rd 12 has been the best decision I have made all year

Finnius123 · 23/07/2017 at 19:06

Nah you are gonna get there.

BrownlowBoy · 23/07/2017 at 19:12

Beams 396k before a rise this week. Good bench option for a loophole as a M9/10?

    INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 19:25

    Perfect rockshit replacement

    Tommo09 · 23/07/2017 at 20:15

    Like it a lot
    Need to find a way to bring him in

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 00:55

    I got lucky and didn't sell as I was down on trades, hoped he'd be back by finals…nice score this week 🙂

INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 19:12

Just counting down the minutes until I can remove Tom Rockshit from my sight. The mother of all rage trades

    Ja191 · 23/07/2017 at 19:21

    he won the game but unfortunately was SC irrelevant

      INPieman · 23/07/2017 at 19:23

      Irrelevant indeed JA. You won't win a finals series with him in your team. Massive liability

GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 19:13

Thankyou Zorko, Stef Martin and even Docherty will probably just crack the 100 again after a crap start. Special mention to Witherden on the bench to hahha :)!

    BrownlowBoy · 23/07/2017 at 19:17

    110 for Doch

TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 19:15

You can't stop the Doc!

Looked no hope of tonning up. But yet again, the Doc delivers the right medicine. A healthy injection of supercoach points. The Doc eases my pain AGAIN this round!

    GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 19:18

    Fantastic! I ended up on 2,460 after that last game 🙂

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 19:23

      Wow. What a score! Brilliant.

        GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 19:26

        Thats with JK, Laird, Bont, Nank and Greene spudding up…

AuroraBorealis?! · 23/07/2017 at 19:19

Par score for this week? I ended up with 2346 which i feel is either par or a little bit below

    GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 19:24

    Probably around 2300 to 2400
    I ended on 2460

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 19:24

    That is above par if you are ranked inside the top 1500 I reckon.

    Pman · 23/07/2017 at 19:39

    I got 2388 and pretty much everyone in my leagues were around the 2300 to 2500 mark.

Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 19:20

OK. What's par/top 5% this week? 2350-2400?

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 19:33

    If there are 200,000 coaches and you are in the top 5%, you are sitting in the top 10,000. I reckon a score of around the 2300 mark will ensure no dramatic rank change.

RobDog · 23/07/2017 at 19:31

I think par will be 2350 – 2400. Had a good week and scored 2507, rapt.

Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 19:43

Dusty had a 158 BE this week so will actually drop a bit. This will be the week to pick him up. Waiting for Rd 19 to open as I have $40k in bank which will be about what I need to go JPK to Dusty. Will be touch and go.

Going to be an interesting SC finals. There's Sloane, Zorko, Ablett and Dusty that can go big but also be "off" if they cop the tag in any given week. Will be important to use loopholes wisely.

    Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 21:11

    Woohoo! JPK to Dusty with $1,900 left!!

Top Gun · 23/07/2017 at 19:47

2306 not helped by defence score in 70s by Rance, Lloyd and Hurley. Will be about par I'd say.

TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 19:48

Hahaha. You backed up really well this week after posting a big one last week. That is what you want. Consistent big scores.

I am heading in the right direction too. After posting 2449 points 4 weeks ago, I flopped with a 2224, the week after. Last week I scored big with 2483. So my goal was to not flop this week. Did not flop as bad with a 2293. Will take that.

You backed your 2450 odd up last week with another 2440 this round!

Looking forward to a big clash next week mate. It will be a ripper!

Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 19:50

2473 Nank and Rockys tagging role killed my hopes of 2500 plus. Still hope it gets me back into top 1000.

Joshua · 23/07/2017 at 19:51

2340 this week, about par id think

Jim_bob321 · 23/07/2017 at 20:02

Fair to say downgrading Ryan and upgrading Nank to Gawn? Have 5 trades left 40k in bank

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/07/2017 at 20:09

Hats off to the kruez ship again this week up against big stef but still punched out a 120
You have the AA guernsey
Doc mate gave me a scare but never in doubt a bad game of 110 lol come home like a freight train in the second half.

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 20:23

    Good win Trigger. Well played. Revenge is sweet as they say.

    The Tophawks need to stay in the 8 in Trigg's Happy Place League. Only a win is acceptable.

    Finals start next week!

    Cheers Trigger

      Tyruddanaut · 23/07/2017 at 20:40

      Don't finals start the week after. I'm hoping they do because I have an easy draw

        Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 20:58

        Yep finals start in round 20

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/07/2017 at 20:51

      Cheers hawk cracking battle.
      Two keys ins this week in Jelwood and Dusty were the difference.
      Thought I was shot after Newmans effort last night but big Kruez another mighty pod effort.
      benching nank also proved a winning move.
      gonna be one helluva finals series.
      Did you see how close most of the matches were?
      two or 3 games decided by 3 points and also a draw!

      neil demons delight · 23/07/2017 at 21:29

      gonna be hard to catch you and paul who had a 4 pt win. Too much per cent to make up but hey Toppa what a great year at THE HAPPY PLACE I WILL GIVE IT ONE HELL OF A GO NEXT YEAR if invited back.. felt bad about drawing in Shakes league didn't deserve the 2 pts but pit me to Richmond 9 th

JohndJames · 23/07/2017 at 20:11

That feeling when you lose a SC game by 12pts that you had to win to play finals and you cover Pendles with SPP instead of Witherden

    Russty_ · 24/07/2017 at 00:09

    Yes, I know it well…that lovely feeling of..failure! lol, hey John, winning the final in the bottom 8 is fun too :)..and then it's all gone and forgotten until next February 🙂

      JohndJames · 24/07/2017 at 02:41

      Hey Russty I had given up on my 'Rogue Traders' league but if I won this one I would have been in 8th spot on % it's a top league,ranked 312 so you have to get top scores just to win a game,I'm in the top 6 in my other leagues,so I should make the finals in those ones.I'm going to be in the top 10,000 no worries,currently 6,243,which was my aim at the start,so that's something,made all my finals last year and won one GF,if I can at least win one again,that will do me.It all ends too quickly in the end,a bit like the real finals,then like you said,it's all over and forgotten,till next year.

Tommo09 · 23/07/2017 at 20:15

Finished on 2377 this week
Pretty happy with that

Other scores from the community this week?

    JohndJames · 23/07/2017 at 20:27

    2322,only won four of my eight leagues.

      Tyruddanaut · 23/07/2017 at 20:39

      Eight leagues! Wow!

    GloryDays90 · 23/07/2017 at 20:50


Steeeve · 23/07/2017 at 20:20

Couldnt even crack 2300. Bont, Lynch, Rance and Nank my main letdowns. But just not enough big scores. 12 blokes under their projected scores.

    Derek · 23/07/2017 at 21:43

    Same. Team full of mediocre. Especially the Swan boys.

      Russty_ · 23/07/2017 at 23:08

      Swans and tigers stuffed my score this week, didn't crack 2300 either.

RobDog · 23/07/2017 at 20:30

Probably a dumb question, but rankings keep going until the end of the minor rounds, right? Winner decided after Round 23?

    Northerner · 23/07/2017 at 20:51


      RobDog · 23/07/2017 at 22:27

      Cheers Northerner

Finnius123 · 23/07/2017 at 20:34

Ended up with 2362, pretty happy with that considering I captained Selwood, and had a lot of mid 70s to 80s scores.

    Tyruddanaut · 23/07/2017 at 20:38

    Ended up with the exact same score. Pretty bad considering how the weekly ranking was

Jim_bob321 · 23/07/2017 at 21:12

5 trades left, already full premo, what does the community think?
Ryan – Glass
Nank – Kreuz

    TheScacman · 24/07/2017 at 08:23

    As long as you've got defensive bench cover, that sounds pretty rock solid

TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 21:22

Tom Rockliff.

He made Bryce Gibbs look like a fool today.

Is Rocky getting over his shoulder issues? Will he get his original role back? Aka ball magnet?

On the radar this week.

    SCdonkey · 23/07/2017 at 22:15

    I think he's over the shoulder injury, but what worries me he might continue to do a tagging role for the rest of the season.

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2017 at 00:53

    So you reckon it was a risky move benching him for Greenwood's tonne? Or only post this match? He hasn't tonned up since rnd 8, last two weeks have been 57. Only one score lower at 53. Yep a slightly different role today, but until you see him running through the mids winning contested ball and tackling with purpose you can not bring him in for mine. Especially don't try to catch a falling knife pre SC finals…just too risky. As for me, unfortunately I'm looking at a 200k lose on my starting purchase, as well as holding for a number of weeks out such is my conviction in the man (which has been sorely tested these last few weeks).

Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 21:22

Gee 1.992 people scored higher than my 2473, must of been some huge totals this week? Still I won all my leagues and went up 416 spots in the rakings. It also put me back into top 1,000 at 921…..So I got to be happy with that.

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/07/2017 at 21:32

    Wait till the rake his your face. You will not like it.

SaintNiq · 23/07/2017 at 21:59

Have Lloyd, Laird, Hibberd, Adams, Rance and Newman as my defence. Need to trade out Newman. Have five trades and want to use just one but who to get with $513K which leaves me with 4 trades to cover finals.
Had a look at Simpson, Hurn, Roberton etc.
Who do you suggest and why?

    ahmad rubas · 23/07/2017 at 22:41

    simmo cause docherty playing more midfield cause of cripps injury

      Doughnuts · 24/07/2017 at 09:25

      Zac Williams is a young star in a good team and Simpson is aging. Maybe Roberton.

    Randomcliche · 24/07/2017 at 10:16

    Howe is a gun and can string together 120+s, if you want my value pick. But do 2 trades and buy Doc. You'll be happier for it. I spent 3 trades buying him and haven't looked back. Buy the best!

      SaintNiq · 24/07/2017 at 11:25

      But that will leave me with only three trades with team complete?
      I could trade Scharenberg (Out of favour) and risk one gamer Conor Glass and of course Newman who hasn't been the same since McVeigh has arrived back. Hopefully Ryan has served his penance. Surely Ross will bring him back to complement my defence bench.
      A bit nervous with only three trades to try and win my league. Decisions, decisions.

neil demons delight · 23/07/2017 at 22:01

you will be pleased to.know Toppa it will take a 400 pt turnaround to displace yourself unless blush upsets you..But a 2400 to 2200 loss by you and a 2400 to 2200 win by Demons Delight still leaves me short Time to concede

Iamme · 23/07/2017 at 22:02

I'm just going for league wins TOPHAWK!, as long as I make the finals I will be happy. I still got 4 trades left and in the top 8 in all my 9 leagues, so if I finish in the rankings any higher than I currently am it will be a bonus.

Skeletor · 23/07/2017 at 22:27

Rocky to Beams and Nank to Kennedy? Good or not good?

    Jess · 24/07/2017 at 06:33

    Rocky has single handliy ruined my year. I traded hom out and brought him back on at over $600,000. Could of got any premium, but got a six round average of 69!!! If i saw him on the street I'd kill him

Choice · 23/07/2017 at 23:06

How many weeks for Zorko?

    Jake.B · 24/07/2017 at 10:45

    What for? SPS took a massive clayton oliver dive and copped a clip to the throat

matthewspangher · 23/07/2017 at 23:07

Have enough trades to use 2 every week including finals, nothing really to work on in my team so my question is, pendlebury>D.martin and… Nank>J.kennedy up forward?!, feel like the latter is a HUGE risk but kennedy is sitting at pretty cheap price and nank is by far the weakest link on my team, thoughts?

    Russty_ · 24/07/2017 at 00:25

    Can you post your whole team? Easier to make suggestions then.

Gazza R · 23/07/2017 at 23:34

Scored 2446 moved up to 350 from 460 in rank.

    jockreynolds · 24/07/2017 at 09:22

    Brilliant Gazza!!!

      Gazza R · 24/07/2017 at 21:19

      Thanks Jock

Adam · 24/07/2017 at 07:12

Ryan lester will b the next big thing

    Randomcliche · 24/07/2017 at 10:19

    Yeah, I've draftstared him a couple of times. Very happy.

Tommo09 · 24/07/2017 at 09:38

T.Lynch or Greenwood out for J.Kennedy for my last fwd spot?

    Randomcliche · 24/07/2017 at 10:11

    Greenwood, just. TJL bigger ceiling

      H Lee · 24/07/2017 at 10:17

      considering you are going kennedy i would say lynch out, not sure you want both of them spudding up in the same week 🙂

TOPHAWK1 · 24/07/2017 at 10:01

The trade levers are going to be in action this week.

Thoughts on these two trades?

OUT- James Cousins IN- Conor Glass (DEF/MID)
OUT- Toby Nankervis IN- Max Gawn

Gawn would obviously need be a certain starter next week. (His current ankle problem must be monitored closely) If he is declared fit, he could get back to some of that majestic 2016 form. At his rock bottom price of $455K, this can simply not go unnoticed.


    Tibor · 24/07/2017 at 11:48

    Will be very interesting to see what Melb do with him this week. Playing North at Hobart. If he isn't good to go I don't see why they would risk him. If he does play you'd have to think he is due for a big one if he gets hold of an out of form Goldy or takes Majak to school. He has had just on a month back now and looked great against a quality opponent on Saturday before he got hurt.

    It might be very hard to win a SuperCoach gf against an opponent who has him….

Choice · 24/07/2017 at 10:14

Anybody worried about Zorko hitting SPS?

    Jake.B · 24/07/2017 at 10:46

    Nope that was less contact than scofields and wasn't the same. SPS taking one out of Oliver's book

    Tibor · 24/07/2017 at 12:12

    Just threw an arm back, wasn't looking so careless even if he got him, but he missed anyway. Bit different to Oliver who got the trailing elbow on the chin and had no incentive to stage because it was at half time.

    If there was any contact at all it was on the chest. Still not as poor an acting job as rance

Jake.B · 24/07/2017 at 10:48

Newman to Docherty
Fisher to Young via DPP
Leaves me with 3 trades & looking at nank to gawn next week. Needed to do the 2nd trade this week to give me some solid cash for the gawn trade and also for future two trades if anyone comes down. Full premos then and only Greenwood as my last fwd. Pretty stoked with that.

garfield_da_cat · 24/07/2017 at 12:18

Looking to trade out Houston this week, my question is who do i bring in? I currently have Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Cameron, Buddy and Parsons and Smith as bench.

    garfield_da_cat · 24/07/2017 at 12:19

    i also have 4 trades left and 116k in the bank

    Derek · 24/07/2017 at 12:21

    Macrae is close to must have

      garfield_da_cat · 24/07/2017 at 13:12

      i already have Macrae

    Captain Risky · 24/07/2017 at 13:36


Thomas · 24/07/2017 at 12:29

Is it worth trading Shaz – Titch/Zerrett (via junker) this week? Means i only have 2 trades left, but team is complete (pushes Witherden to the pine).

Nic Newman's bro · 24/07/2017 at 13:18

Looking to trade out Rocky for a piece of poo this week

    Jose · 24/07/2017 at 13:43

    Sideways trading achieves nothing
