Sam

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

Whatyasmokin

Would have to see your team honestly.

Sam

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

Trade pendles to merrett

SC_Kev7

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

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

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

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

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

SC site says sharenberg is playing? Any news there?

SC_Kev7

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

BlueNath

Its a sign from the SC gods

B T

He isn't named in the Pies side.

Adam Simpson

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

hedski

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

Russty_

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

TOPHAWK1

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

Good plan great minds hawk ….

hedski

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

gonna loop lynch also could go big but suss without god

Shake n bake

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

Wal

Last midfield spot, 5 trades remaining…

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

Wedge

I would punt on beams and save one trade

Wal

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

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

neil demons delight

tich then merrett

SC_Kev7

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

And did anyone?

Rivo

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

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

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

The Ranger

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

hedski

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

ahmad rubas

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

BlueNath

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

ahmad rubas

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

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

ahmad rubas

good pod tonned up today

Jordan

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

I went Mummy and banked $70k

neil demons delight

good move shake Jacobs and mummy are 1 and 2

Shake n bake

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

Jim_bob321

Lets hope Ebert does well

BrownlowBoy

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__

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

Zorko

Imgonnalose

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

Imgonnalose

Preferably a mid

Defying_Madness

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

beams

Defying_Madness

Looking for some advice regarding Pendles this week community.
Here is my team: https://gyazo.com/0f99c33b06c419229f191bf5222c6aa
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

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

Defying_Madness

Well I benched Dahl and ended up losing points

qwert

Shaw or Newman to Hurley???

Jake.B

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

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

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

Jim

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

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

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

Yeah agreed on lynch. his bad days are BAD

Stirlsy

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

INPieman

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

Defying_Madness

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

He is taking Ryder to school atm haha

TRIGGA_HAPPY

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

GloryDays90

The big Gawn is back! 43 at QTR time 🙂

Russty_

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

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

Russty_

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

Jose

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

Russty_

Port Adealaide getting absolutely smoked by Melbourne…wow.

neil demons delight

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

Good call

Whatyasmokin

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

POTS

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_

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

neil demons delight

Magic Door best yet Russty is it yours

Russty_

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

JohndJames

Max looks like he's back.

Defying_Madness

Looks like he is injured now… We all jinxed it

Russty_

Bummer nooo, say it isn't so

Defying_Madness

Hes back on but missed most of the third quarter

Gjlane123

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_

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

Gjlane123

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

Russty_

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

Gjlane123

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

Who to field out of nank and Riewoldt?

Defying_Madness

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

Russty_

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

Derek

Yep. Bought Wingard into my team this week.

GloryDays90

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

Defying_Madness

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

Derek

Got back on. Gave away a free and left.

Russty_

Bummer Derek…bad break mate.

neil demons delight

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

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

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_

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

Randomcliche2

OMG annus horribilis 4 u! Sorry to hear it.

JohndJames

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

Jim_bob321

Bloody hell Ollie Wines always gets robbed….

Defying_Madness

Ebert got robbed also

hedski

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

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

JohndJames

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

Russty_

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

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_

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

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

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

Stirlsy

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

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

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

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

Stirlsy

Ryan is ok and back on ground

ahmad rubas

is he likely to play next week?

Stirlsy

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

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

neil demons delight

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

BrownlowBoy

Bont is not moving well.

TOPHAWK1

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

Finished on 77.

GloryDays90

Wow Bont… my first Flop for the weekend…

Marcus

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

Russty_

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

Marcus

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

SCdonkey

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

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

Joshua

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_

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

Joshua

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_

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

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

Finnius123

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

Russty_

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

BlueNath

Agree. And a very relevant SC/footy comment

Randomcliche2

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

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

Iamme

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

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

Russty_

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

Finnius123

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_

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

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

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

Defying_Madness

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_

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

Iamme

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

Russty_

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

Iamme

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

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

Joshua

Cannot wait to get Mitchell in!

Russty_

What are you waiting for?

Joshua

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

SCdonkey

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_

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

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

neil demons delight

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

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

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