PODCAST: Supercoach Finals Week 1

Published by Jock on

Supercoach Podcast


This must be the biggest pre-finals Supercoach OUT in the history of our fine game.
The thing is community, he’s not the only issue we’re facing this week. Nankervis. Rocky. JPK. Lloyd. Kreuzer. FWD fickleness. A dearth of DEFs.
Finals are here – and we wouldn’t have it any other bloody way.
Enjoy the show folks!

Good luck to everyone competing in your league finals! No Danger no worries!

    Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 18:43

    Trading him out will get me to round 2/3. Goodnight Danger

      Randomcliche2 · 01/08/2017 at 21:03

      I'm hoping my team is robust enough to cover a premo mid out, unfortunately I will need to trade pendles though as I don't want 1.2m on the pine…hope you got the trades to bring him back!

        Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 21:21

        0trades left and proud

          Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 00:39

          I'm holding…only because I can, can see alot of teams getting knocked out in the first round of finals this week though, if they're not in the top 4.

            Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 20:33

            Someone has gotta lose, Danger playing or not….Danger is in 99% of top 1000 teams, it's just going to test team and trade depth. Interesting week.

          Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 20:31

          Nooooo! After not missing a trade until rnd 14 where I only made one, I was sure I was going to be president no trades left comittee. Alas that is your role now. Hope you've got plenty of space as I think you'll have a few joining you this weekend.

          Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 20:34

          For what it's worth I wouldn't trade him out in your situation then…all the best.

Sunshine · 01/08/2017 at 16:51

Is Lloyd a definate out?

    SC_Kev7 · 01/08/2017 at 16:52


      Sunshine · 01/08/2017 at 18:03

      Hope not because I need to move Adams to cover Danger and Ryan to cover Adams. May need to trade out Kennedy and one trade is enough thanks.
      Good luck everyone because we know how important that is. The best made plans can go to pieces depending on the SC Gods.

        WightysWarriors · 02/08/2017 at 17:58

        How does this adams/danger and ryan/adams thing work. I have ryan on def bench, and witherden on field mid…he was final upgrade this week till danger disaster. White and Fisher mid cover, plus four of my fwds…..macrae, yeo, dahl, greenwood. How to do what you are saying is doing my head in…can you help please ?

    Redgumwon · 01/08/2017 at 19:28

    Sydney site say Lloyd a good chance to play

      Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 21:49

      Good, although I may even play Witherden and Ryan above him.

      Wait……chasing points, missed them, they played GWS. Ryan won't score that big this week.

benjamin B · 01/08/2017 at 16:54

Hi jock and Community.
1 trade left and $56,800. Who to bring in for pendles? Neale, Kelly, ward, fyfe?? Or someone else?

Adams, Laird, Doc, Rance, Hibberd, Simmo (Witherden, Neilson)
Danger, Dusty, Zerrett, Bont, Treloar, Hanners, Jelwood, lloyd (Pendles, Cousins,Junker)
Gawn, Grundy (Strn)
Yeo, Macrea, Dahl, Buddy, Ryder, Greenwood (Greene, Eddy)

    B T · 01/08/2017 at 21:00

    Fyfe in great form.

    Randomcliche2 · 01/08/2017 at 21:04

    Fyfe is life!

      Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 21:47

      Yep and plays GCS in Perth this week……..could be a great move to get the team through week one.

Verdun66 · 01/08/2017 at 16:57

Brilliant again. The story of ET…. I now know why Yeo going poorly and Fyfe coming good, Makes perfect sense.

Definitely going Nank to Ryder.

Lime · 01/08/2017 at 16:59

Evening Lad,
3 trades left and I want to offload Nank and Greenwood.
Do i go Nank>Ryder and hold greenwood at D6 with only 20k in the bank
Nank > S Martin (in rucks)
Greenwood > JJK/Heeney/Wallis at D6

    Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 18:42

    Smartin + Heeney = WIN

      Derek · 01/08/2017 at 20:52

      Martin has a nice finish to year, so does Ryder, any chance of getting them both?

Thomas · 01/08/2017 at 17:31

Apparently JPK will miss a week or 2. I got 539k to spend, with only 2 trades left
Current midfield is: Danger, Titch, Neale, Jelwood, JPK, Bont, Treloar, Fyfe (Witherden, Cousins, JDC)
should i?

option 1: Hold for this week, have Greenwood as cover, but means i cannot loop Buddy/Greenwood/Lynch
Option 2: Sideways trade

As much as i want to loop the 3 i mentioned above, i reckon holding this week is the most sensible option. There aren't many good options at that price and could sideways trade him to Zerrett next week as he will drop in price.
Thoughts would be greatly appreciated community!

    Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 18:42

    If you can get in Gawn for him do it. Otherwise Witherden looks good

    TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 12:23

    What's your situation? Playing finals or going for overall? I like the idea of holding to wait for a better option with limited trades

      Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 12:30

      Made the top 8 in all my leagues, in my main league, playing top of the table. Am able to bring Gawn in, but that means that Dahl, Yeo, Macrae or Greenwood will eventually be my M8-9 (once i trade Ryan out). Which i dont like the look of as other than Macrae, the other 3 dont have huge ceilings so arent great M8-9 material.
      Thinking will probably hold if hes out, just means i have to play Lynch, Buddy and greenwood all onfield instead of looping them.
      What do ya reckon mate?

        TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 12:46

        I would hold out for a better M8-9. Gawn i think will be the best ruck coming home but I don't like any FWDs as a M8, maybe an M9 but not 8

          Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 13:37

          Cheers for the reply mate! Just thinking. I know its very outlandish, but thoughts on Rocky as an M9 in the next week or so. Other option is Robbie Gray, but would need to use my last 2 trades for Gray whilst i would only need 1 for Rocky.

            TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 14:13

            I think it's a waste of your end trades. He's cheap for a reason. I really want to see that 150+ explosion from him but he looks off at the moment

              Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 14:17

              Fair enough mate. Do ya have any suggestions? 46k left
              Def: Doc, Adams, Laird, Simmo, Rance, Hibberd (Ryan, Junker)
              Mid: Danger, Titch, Neale, Jelwood, JPK, Bont, Treloar, Fyfe, (Witherden, Cousins, JDC)
              Ruc: Grundy, Ryder (Buzza)
              Fwd: Macrae, Yeo, Dahl, Heeney, Buddy, Greenwood (Lynch, Strndica)

                TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 14:43

                Sit tight and wait for Merrett is what I would do. If you do need to trade there is Sidebottom, Murphy, Beams and even Coniglio (was in my team all preseason) for JPK, but id hold.

                Ryan is decent DEF cover, as it Witherden and Greenwood next week.

                Stay alert for late changes that could cost a donut and you'll be find.

                  TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 14:44

                  Just realised we have an identical midfield. Good luck mate

INPieman · 01/08/2017 at 17:36

Would be nice if ET could slip Hanners a few beers & drop down his pants

    OldOcker · 01/08/2017 at 18:05

    ET is not very robust and falls out of leg very easy, Maybe Hanners could borrow shorts from Warrick Capper and tighten up his ball handling skills.

Stirlsy · 01/08/2017 at 18:04

Yeo's carrying some type of injury, no idea what it is just my opinion.

    INPieman · 01/08/2017 at 18:53

    Perhaps there's a hidden message in Crouchings story & he joined pops Kelly with an aggot in the pickle jar

      Stirlsy · 01/08/2017 at 20:17

      There are hidden messages in storys? ill have to listen better. LOL

Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 18:40

Bye bye, Danger!

Straight out of my team you go. You have been a valiant soldier EXCEPT I don't particularly like you. I probably should've warned about my unpopular opinion but meh.

Say hello to Gawn and Kelly. Always wanted Kelly in and now I got the chance. Then a simple switch of Parsons to Gawn and Nank at F7.

All I need is captain choices and a bit of luck that multiple midfielders/Gawn don't get injured. It'll pay off with a bit of loopholing.

Now you can rage at me

    Jim_bob321 · 01/08/2017 at 19:15

    I like that, I might trade Danger myself to Dusty
    Probably going VC Zorko to perhaps Dusty C

      Derek · 01/08/2017 at 20:50

      The Hawks will put a Howe/Langford/burton/Shiel tag on Dusty this week

        Don't Blush Baby · 01/08/2017 at 20:53

        Nuh, not the Hawthorn way , they worry about their own game first rather then getting sucked into 1 player

          Derek · 02/08/2017 at 09:31

          the hawks are doing alot of things differently now.

          Defying_Madness · 02/08/2017 at 10:41

          Hawks have been tagging for weeks now

        Leggo · 01/08/2017 at 21:03

        Dusty won't be stopped by those blokes.

          Nifty · 01/08/2017 at 21:19

          What about a kiss from Langford?

        Randomcliche2 · 01/08/2017 at 21:12

        Agreed. Howe* will be side-by-side with him from the get go. On the off chance they not do it he'll be there by the end of q1 anyways…. *could be Shiel but either way he is going to have wearing a hawks jumper all day. Just wish he was wearing a Hawks jumper next year….

          Derek · 02/08/2017 at 09:34

          the hawks are playing pretty good footy and the tigers will need to be at their best. I think the hawks will have to admit they have one eye on a finals berth so this game is make or break

            Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 15:02

            Yep can see hawks winning this.

ThatsGoldJerry · 01/08/2017 at 18:57

Hi Guys….how long will Mumford be out for ? Is Witts likely to play ?they are my two rucks 🙁

    Lazza · 01/08/2017 at 19:15

    Both listed as 'Test'… 50/50 both of them

    Der · 01/08/2017 at 21:06

    Mummy is a very tough bloke + the giants need him back badly. I'd expect him to be back.

    Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 09:54

    Witts is ruled out this week, and possibly next

Jim_bob321 · 01/08/2017 at 19:13

Have 3 trades left…
Would the community suggest Danger to Dusty or any other premos?

    B T · 01/08/2017 at 21:08

    If you were to trade Danger, it would have to be between Dusty or Titch.

    Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 21:46

    Possibly Fyfe or Oliver? Of course I bring in Titch last week and he doesn't do great, although I suspected it vs Sydney.

    JohndJames · 01/08/2017 at 22:36

    All four mentioned above work

    Willo · 03/08/2017 at 07:55

    If you're top 4 mate, hang onto Danger. Worst case scenario you lose this week and then smash em next week with Danger back in as POD.

hedski · 01/08/2017 at 20:03

So I just read on the afl site that Kreuzer is a chance to play this week(concussion test pending), yet End Curnow is out for the year (10 weeks + from a don't argue to the throat).
Hmmmm. Thoughts community.

    CrisisB · 01/08/2017 at 21:10

    I definitely wont be surprised if he plays, what type of big bloke gets hurt from that.

    Randomcliche2 · 01/08/2017 at 21:14

    Throat is not the head….

      hedski · 01/08/2017 at 22:11

      True Random the throat is a lot softer and not important for breathing/eating/talking

    Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 00:47

    Hope the Kreuz gets up Hedski

Derek · 01/08/2017 at 20:46

…….. playing loose in the back pocket…… hehehehe

BrownlowBoy · 01/08/2017 at 21:02

Any ideas who will be getting DPP next year?

Surely Robbie Gray as a forward. Wouldn't mind Blakely as a defender either.

    Don't Blush Baby · 01/08/2017 at 21:13


    Northerner · 01/08/2017 at 21:19

    Danger as a forward? Probably not. Yeo as Def/mid. Duggan as def/mid worth watchlisting.

    Tyruddanaut · 01/08/2017 at 21:31

    Adams will be purely Midfield. Possibly Curnow with mid/fwd but unlikely. Jones will be a def possibly def/fwd but unlikely. Burton will be pure def. Dusty possibly Mid/fwd. Otten with Fwd/Def or fwd/mid. Jenkins possibly fwd/ruck. Zorko possibly but unlikely fwd/mid. Moore possibly Fwd/ruck. Danger fwd/mid very unlikely. Burgoyne mid/def. Sicily mid/fwd. Lynch very unlikely fwd/def. Petracca possibly fwd/ruck. Ryder/Nank pure ruck. Tom McDonald fwd/def. Grigg Fwd/mid. Gray Fwd/mid. Heeney fwd/mid. Petrevski seton fwd/mid. Yep def/mid or mid. Bont mid/fwd. s

      Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 00:16

      Great list. A couple of speculative ones here. Gunston F/D, Sicily F/D, both have played Def the last 2 weeks very well, I think they'll see the season out there and gain DPP… but you can't select Sicily in SC…..He's Greene by another name.

      Leeds17 · 03/08/2017 at 06:04

      Great list though swap these based on the last 6 weeks, Burgoyne mid/def. Sicily mid/fwd

    B T · 01/08/2017 at 21:57

    Yeo should get def/mid, Bont mid/fwd, Gray mid/fwd, Blakely def/mid, Zorks hopefully mid/fwd, Sidey mid/fwd, maybe Coniglio mid/fwd, Ellis def, Newnes def/mid, J McGovern maybe def/fwd, Tmac fwd/def. Lachie Hunter could get DPP, k jack mid/fwd.

    We will probably lose Macrae,Ryder, Adams, Lloyd as DPP.

    Derek · 02/08/2017 at 09:37

    i don't play AFL fantasy, but i believe they change players DPP during the year. Does anyone know where to find the players who have changed their DPP during 2017?

      SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2017 at 09:51

      I couldn't find a definitive list, but if you run a "afl fantasy dpp changes" google search you get a bunch of hits. Positional changes happen 3 times a season

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2017 at 13:19

      The ones I I know of as they r in my team
      Gray – fwd
      sidebottom – fwd
      blakey – Def
      Menegola – fwd

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 00:35

    Not sure until next season mate but I know I'll be getting as many of the DPP bastards as I can!

Jono · 01/08/2017 at 21:36

Out: Nank and Berry
In: Ryder and Yeo

Need Lloyd to be named

    B T · 01/08/2017 at 21:58

    Good moves, I'd expect Lloyd to be named.

INPieman · 01/08/2017 at 21:48

My neighbours are probably wondering which of them I was referring to when I walked out my front door & screamed F*ck Witts. He's been ruled out with a shoulder injury

    Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 21:51

    Haha nice one. The joke not the injury.

    I am hereby royally F'd.

    Kreuzer (Bought in last week)

    Wouldn't matter if I'd saved 5 trades lol.

      JohndJames · 01/08/2017 at 21:57

      I have Kreuzer,also brought in last week,for Sandy,Lloyd and Danger,like everybody else.I will just be covering them with my E players,since I only have two trades left,due to using nine trades on injuries during the season.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 01/08/2017 at 22:01

      Harsh that. One more than me.

      Don't think we would be on our pat Malone.
      Only confirmed two are danger and Witts.
      Not ideal going into Rd 1 of finals but gonna have to DPP some rookies.
      Least with the swans we will know early.

      Don't think the gods are finished with us yet. Just wait there will be an out totally out of the blue this week like doc, Titch or macrae just to twist the knife a bit more and make u squirm

      The "General" usually strikes about now. Insert evil music.

        Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 23:11

        Yep anything can happen. Covering mids with Rocky and Myers may work out well, Myers has actually been ok recently and Rocky might change role and get a big one at home vs Carlton.

      Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 20:35

      Check all the above and still holding pendles. 2 trades left. Heh hehehe. Loving life.

    Steeeve · 01/08/2017 at 21:51

    Witts out? Ohhhh boy uh oh

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 01/08/2017 at 22:02

    Did they poke their head up or just mumble "pie is at it again?" Lol

      INPieman · 01/08/2017 at 22:43

      I generally keep my debaurtuary away from the house. But not this time Trig. Tensions boiled over. The Chinese Sudanese Japanese Vietnamese dirty knees & Kiwi neighbours will be wondering WTF is going on

Joshua · 01/08/2017 at 21:49

covering Danger with lloyd through some Dpp. Gotta wait on JPK tho, if he is out then he is gone for Oliver

    Joshua · 01/08/2017 at 22:23

    damn Witts out too, gotta hold him. At least all my opponents have him as well

      Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 00:46

      Injury update says 1 to 2 weeks, good luck mate.

        Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 15:01

        Am holding too. Trading JPK out, Greenwood to mid, welcome Paddy Ryder.

Steeeve · 01/08/2017 at 21:55

Grundy or Stef Martin?

Only two worth a damn I can afford for Witts.

    DARC · 01/08/2017 at 22:43

    Almost a flip of a coin, maybe Stef because he is more consistent and likely of a 100 every week.

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2017 at 09:44

    Like Stef at home vs Bulldogs this week. Zorko back to shark his hitouts

Kaptured · 01/08/2017 at 21:56

Exactly what I will be doing. Unfortunately I think Kennedy will be out for 2-3 weeks if it is hammy. Some guy wrote earlier about the half pregnant analogy which was a good one. Damn.

    Leboi · 01/08/2017 at 22:44

    Yeah, he'll probably be out for a few, get him ready for finals.

    The young swans have been excellent so I'd assume the swans think they can continue to do the job.

      Derek · 02/08/2017 at 09:39

      does that mean Hanners will be at centre bounces, or will Mills, paps, heeney get the gig

        The Ranger · 02/08/2017 at 12:46

        You'd think Hanners would get more time in there surely?
        Mitch Duncan might be a nice sneaky pick up this week too.

        Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 15:00

        Hanners and paps, Heeney will be there too. No faith in Mills getting midfield time.

    INPieman · 01/08/2017 at 22:56

    I saw that "you can't be half pregnant" analogy to. Quality advice. And that needs to be added to the home page of Tinder as a disclaimer

      Swans2012 · 02/08/2017 at 18:36

      Hoping your not speaking from experience???

Whatyasmokin · 01/08/2017 at 23:15

Just my luck I bet Goldy will be back this week too, should've held as he wasn't injured.

    Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 00:24

    I don't reckon you hold on a premium Ruckman worth $524000 out for 2 weeks before the finals, could've meant the difference between making top 4..or 8 in Leagues, gotta do what you gotta do in times like that.

      Derek · 02/08/2017 at 09:40

      i saw the Chad might be back next week as well. Got him two weeks ago, rid of him last week.

Northerner · 02/08/2017 at 05:09

Thank you Jarrod Witts. I think selection of the season for me. What a great SC servant you have been this year. The only selection that would challenge him on my list would be Oliver. Witts to Gawn adds $20k to the bank. Unbelievable.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2017 at 11:05

    He has been remarkable.

    If I had said in Rd 1 you could bring in Gawn for $20k less than Witts u would be measuring me up for a straight jacket express to the nut house.

    But this is now reality.
    Remarkable effort Wittsy well done.

      Tibor · 02/08/2017 at 12:22

      Interesting pick between Witts and Oliver as the SuperCoach best pick of the year. Witts increased more in value but I'd reckon more to it than that and the fact that a mid price like Oliver not only jumped up but showed such consistency, absence of underpants staining and even went very big a few times gives him the nod for me but not by much.

      Who has been the other way and been the disappointing jock dirtier of the year, as an early nomination I'll go with heater any other suggestions

        Bob · 02/08/2017 at 22:55

        Pendlebury. Biggest skidmark ever left by a supposed uber-premo

    The Ranger · 02/08/2017 at 12:27

    Yeah hats off to him, I never thought he'd be this good.

    Steeeve · 02/08/2017 at 15:53

    I'm kind of thinking Witts' injury has been a blessing, forcing me to trade for a 'real premo' even if they haven't been performing as well as Witts anyway.
    Pick him up for nothing, get near premo output all year with remarkable consistency. Then he knew when it was time for all of us to let go. Rather than letting us take essentially a rookie into the finale, he bravely sacrificed himself to show us the wisdom we needed to upgrade him to the kind of ruckman we had planned to turn him into all along.

Rivo · 02/08/2017 at 07:24

Holding Danger & JPK, leaving Greenwood at F6. Last 2 trades & $60k, going for broke just to win a final and salvage some pride.

Final swing set: Shaw & Cousins to Adams & Glass.

Good luck everyone!

Westy · 02/08/2017 at 08:11

Last 2 changes
SPP to Oliver
Shaw to Adams
Team finished – for better or worse.

    jez_m · 02/08/2017 at 11:16

    Sound like good moves, Westy

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 15:04


Matt · 02/08/2017 at 09:56

JPK to Selwood
Nank to JJK

Swinging up my josh kennedys, and leaves me with 2 trades

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 15:04

    Not bad.

    Ima Librarian · 04/08/2017 at 10:41

    Scooter could go huge tonight

BloodyFranklin · 02/08/2017 at 10:34

"Play loose in back pocket…"

Classic Crouching comedy at it's finest.

Someone give this guy a bloody award for something.

Jimmy · 02/08/2017 at 10:39

Ok so please tell me if I'm insane. Only have 4 trades left and thinking of taking the biggest risk in my 10 year SuperCoach career. Trade Lloyd who is my cover for Danger to Daniel Wells. Will give me enough cash to trade Nankervis to Gawn, or I could move Nankervis to the fwd line and trade Greenwood for Gawn

    jez_m · 02/08/2017 at 11:16

    Geez that would be a POD move. Do you think Wells will stay on the park for the next four weeks is the big question…

      Jimmy · 02/08/2017 at 11:25

      I suppose I have the security in the fact that he is cover for Danger, so if he does go down it won't be too bad. If he stays healthy I can try to loophole him with a Heppel who is my worst mid. Allows me to upgrade the Nank as well to Gawn. Mind due though my team wouldn't be full premium as I have Witherden and Greenwood still playing with two trades to go

    The Ranger · 02/08/2017 at 12:25

    You must be wearing some pretty baggy trousers there Jim…too risky for me but I like ya thinking.

    No other options? · 02/08/2017 at 12:46

    Picking Wells wow. On first thought the only one crazier than you is Collingwood FC for getting him in the first place. If he is cover and you can loop him out if he starts staining the underpants I suppose nothing ventured nothing gained. No getting around the fact that your chasing last weeks score from one of the most inconsistent unreliable players in the game

      jimmy · 02/08/2017 at 13:56

      You are definitely correct. If it wasn't for last weeks performance; there is no way i would be thinking of him. Yeah as soon as Danger does get back he will go back to my bench and ill try loophole his scores if their good in the remaining games when I can. It still leave me with another $55k to upgrade Greenwood. Further I think Witherden is looking to be a keeper as the last defender.

SC16 · 02/08/2017 at 10:53

Brett Deledio… Thoughts?

    GloryDays90 · 02/08/2017 at 10:55

    Don't bother until next year…

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2017 at 11:00

    In the burns unit in SC so noo waaayyyy!

    But in fantasy as you get two trades each week feeling adventurous so might just roll the dice. Lids on.

    TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 12:08

    Danger to Lids…imagine the plums in making that trade

    The Ranger · 02/08/2017 at 12:21

    There's every chance something will snap or twang or ping or something isn't there?
    Not a good idea to bring in injury prone players during finals, the SC gods love that stuff.

    Tibor · 02/08/2017 at 12:50

    I'm selling a 2004 model AWD Ford Territory, just like lids it was great in it's day, It's got 350k on the clock but I'll give it a clean and a cheap set of new tyres, Are you interested?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2017 at 13:35

      Hopefully hasn't been in the repair shop as much as lids.

        Tibor · 02/08/2017 at 13:53

        No scheduled servicing only but sticking with the lids theme I want top dollar for it

    Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 00:11

    Love it. I think he could go well for 2 weeks then die in ass like a lot of the comeback kids, so I reckon its this week or not at all, partly because the season is over so flowering soon.

jez_m · 02/08/2017 at 11:21

Ran out of trades last week. Hoping that nothing disastrous happens in the next four weeks and my bench cover can get me through.

DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Roberton, Rance, Lloyd (Witherden, Ryan)
MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, J. Selwood, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Kennedy, Wines, Treloar (Greenwood, Mountford, Cousins)
RUCK: Mumford, Grundy (Strnadica)
FWD: Macrae, Yeo, Ryder, Dahlhaus, Kennedy, Lynch (Thomas, Deluca-Cardillo)

    Cogla13 · 02/08/2017 at 13:23

    Shit happens every week. Looks like you'll have Greenwood and Mount playing in the mids for Danger and Kennedy. If Mummy doesn't get up you'll have Thomas in the forwards. And that's before teams are named. Good luck.

Jim_bob321 · 02/08/2017 at 11:42

VC Bont or Zorko community?

    Tommo · 02/08/2017 at 11:44

    Im VC'ing The Bont into Fyfe if that helps. Zorko should get tagged

    B T · 02/08/2017 at 18:43

    Yeah, I'd expect Zorks to get tagged as it seems the run with role is Libba's best role atm.

jez_m · 02/08/2017 at 11:45

With no Danger as a VC option this week, a savvy VC/C combo could really push you up the rankings or win you a final. Currently tossing up whether to go Selwood/Bontempelli/Fyfe as VC into Mitchell as C.

    The Ranger · 02/08/2017 at 12:23

    Selwood into Gawn for me

    B T · 02/08/2017 at 18:45

    I'm thinking Doc into Dusty

Big G · 02/08/2017 at 12:20

Side trade JPK for Lachie Neale. Thoughts?

    Tibor · 02/08/2017 at 13:05

    Oliver if you don't have already

TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 12:40

Sitting in the top 4 with 6 trades left, and Danger, JPK, Shaw, Nank & Greenwood to deal with.

Option 1:
JPK > Dusty or Crouch (league POD)
Scharenberg > Junker.
This opens a loophole for Shaw/Ryan this week, as I have Witherden covering for Danger ATM.

Option 2:
Danger > Dusty
JPK > Crouch, Oliver, Merrett (take your pick)
This means playing a combo of Lynch/Nank/Greenwood at F5-6-7, and I'm stuck with a decision between Shaw & Ryan, and Witherden & J.LLoyd on the field

Option 3:
JPK > Oliver/Kelly/Merrett
Greenwood > JJK

    Derek · 02/08/2017 at 13:15

    Have a look at Papley as a forward option. He souls get more inside midfield time with JPK out. Or Heeney.

    Wallis is another good option. Midfielder with FWD status

      TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 14:11

      I've already got Heeney, along with Yeo, Macrae, Dahl and the others mentioned.

      I just find FWD options so uninspiring this season. Paddy is killing it at the moment and I wish I had the moves to get him in without sacrificing Danger

    Finnius123 · 02/08/2017 at 13:38

    I like option one

      TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 14:12

      I'm leaning to option 1. My opponent doesn't have a strong bench cover so it'll be interesting to see how he handles Danger

        Nicko · 02/08/2017 at 18:35

        why trade danger

          TheGreatBozza · 02/08/2017 at 20:31

          It's a ballsy move. My logic is I have 6 trades and a qualifying final. If I can get a premo over my opponent and win, I can let Danger's price drop and bring him in cheaper for a prelim. This move is extremely high risk and hinges on my opponent having a stronger side than me, Danger not coming back and scoring 200 and there being no other injuries in RD22 to deal with.

          More than likely I won't trade him, but I'm simply putting the thought out there

Rick Grimes · 02/08/2017 at 13:26

I might grab Rocky this week. Got a feeling my selection will turn him round. At worst he's on the bench thereafter.

    Rick Grimes · 02/08/2017 at 13:47

    Might even whack the VC on him. Love backing in a rank outsider!!

    Swans2012 · 02/08/2017 at 19:13

    I like it, he's gotta turn it around sometime…..

      INPieman · 02/08/2017 at 19:19

      I'm getting rid of him this week so he's bound to wake up

    finnigin · 02/08/2017 at 19:44

    libba to zorko this week ,, rocky is off the leash ,, get on

    Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 20:01

    im thinking the same thing, but next week

    The Ranger · 03/08/2017 at 09:12

    Nearly jumped on last week Rick but my swingers weren't big enough. Bloody tempting at that price eh?!

neil Demons Delight · 02/08/2017 at 15:21

Laird and Oliver vc and c

Ben · 02/08/2017 at 15:24

Was going to trade hanners might hold and trade jpk instead

Blake · 02/08/2017 at 18:09

is kreuzer playing or not do you think he will recover before saturday

Nicko · 02/08/2017 at 18:09

is kreuzer playing or not do you think he will recover before saturday

    BrownlowBoy · 02/08/2017 at 18:12

    Thursday night teams are out. Are you using multiple aliases champ?

      Tyruddanaut · 02/08/2017 at 18:38

      There isn't a Thursday night game…..
      Carlton are on Saturday anyway

        Nicko · 02/08/2017 at 19:07

        i said will he be playing on Saturday or not

          Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 19:49

          Nobody knows

        Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 19:49

        They are saying that on thursday night the teams line ups are announced.

Stuck · 02/08/2017 at 19:43

Thought for trades? 3 trades and $139.5 in bank.

DEF: Doch, Hibberd (Mel), Adams, Laird, J Lloyd, Rance (Ryan, Guthrie)
MID: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Oliver, Kelly, Bont, JPK, Jelwood (Witherden, Brodie, Atley)
RUCK: Witts, Gawn (Cameron)
FWD: Ryder, Macrae, Buddy, Heeney, Wallis, Greenwood (Young, Eddy)

TIA for advice

Jose · 02/08/2017 at 19:58

Anyone keen on hanners this week? Need to het rid of JPK and hanners could get more of it with him out

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/08/2017 at 21:02

    Nope. Don't go there. I have Hanners and the prick is on my bench with the E on him this week.

    Look elsewhere mate.

    There are plenty of other similarly priced midfielders which are more viable. Blokes like Ollie Wines and Adam Treloar are below $500K. Both can be clanger happy at times, but are young and hungry, and have decent ceilings.

    Good luck mate.

    The Ranger · 03/08/2017 at 09:10

    Hanners is in the Burns bin until he can put together a decent run of +100pt games.

Spudnik · 02/08/2017 at 20:09

Jose, first sideways trade I have done in five years playing SC. Traded Hanners in round 3 for Zerrett and has been a good trade despite the histeria about sideways trading. No, Ward and others a better option.

    Jose · 02/08/2017 at 20:25

    Thanks spud, i hadnt considered ward

Don't Blush Baby · 02/08/2017 at 20:20

Not much posting, everyone hanging on when the teams are announced ,then we speculate who will play or not ?

The alcohol consumption for most coaches do increase at this time of year, HIc Hic – Best Wishes To All

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/08/2017 at 20:41

    Its like a state of paralysis and uncertainty. Nobody knows what the hell to do, except ……..wait, just gonna grab another tinnie…

    OK I will sit and wait, and enjoy that cold brew. Ahhhhh thats better.

    Good luck community!

      The Ranger · 03/08/2017 at 09:07

      Still waiting….
      Think I've been thru about a thousand different scenarios dependent on who does and doesn't play, trying to sort out my Def line is a nightmare.
      Laird, Simpson and McGovern are lockable but Adams, Lloyd, Ryan, Witherden, Scharenberg, Newman and Junker are getting thrown around all over the bloody place!

Jess · 02/08/2017 at 20:44

5 Trades, 250k. In elimination final. Thoughts?
Adams, Shaw, Hibberd (melb), Doch, Newman, Tuohy (Hibberd – Nth, Ryan)
Jelwood, Danger, JPK, Neale, Merrett, Fyfe, Bont, Greenwood (Pepper, Witherden, Cousins)
Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
Dahl, Nank, Macrae, Buddy, Lynch, Ryder (Eddy, Young)

    Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 21:23

    Maybe trade out JPK and Nank ,for a non injured mid and a player in better form.

    TOPHAWK1 · 02/08/2017 at 21:27

    Hi Jess,

    An elimination final = Sudden death for the loser.

    Need any more motivation to trade?

    The fact that you have 5 trades in the bank, TWO TRADES must be used this week. PERIOD.

    Here is my take based on your current team structure-

    1- Keep Patrick Dangerfield.

    2- Toby Nankervis OUT. JJK IN.

    3- Heath Shaw OUT. Micheal Hurley IN.

    Just my take take.

    Good luck!

      Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 21:36

      What about JPK Hawk?…if Jess has to play Pepper he could stink it up again, and they'll have no mid cover…at least She/he could play Ryan instead of Shaw as an option.

        TOPHAWK1 · 02/08/2017 at 22:04

        JPK on the bench. Witherden, Greenwood, Adams can cover. Plenty of swingers there Russty!

    Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 21:33

    First off, loop Newman and Ryan.

    Danger to Titch.
    Pepper to Dusty.

    Other ideas around Newman to hurley or young to JJK but I think the top two esp if jpk is out.

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 23:47

    Out Nank.
    Out JPK.
    Greenwood moves forward.
    Trade in two elite mids.
    Witherden covers Danger.
    Win finals.
    Thank me.

Bad_News_Brown · 02/08/2017 at 21:37

I've got out the abacus and after some in depth analysis I have come to the below conclusions for the upcoming week

VC Selwood
Hanners on field and to go 100 with no JK
Dusty to be tagged and to score under 106
Fyfe with an extra nut to see the C if Selwood goes under 140
Port to spank those Crows harder than a divorced Venezuelan housewife

Good luck to all you lot out there this week – why bother talking about trades? If you've still got trades up your sleeve you've clearly been sitting on your hands watching too much 'Mash' and 'Young and the Restless'.

    Russty_ · 02/08/2017 at 21:41

    Good luck to you too BNB…hope that Spineless Cockroach Hanners comes through for ya 🙂

      Bad_News_Brown · 02/08/2017 at 21:54

      It's ok – between Hanners and Nancy boy can I handball it Treloar I can swing between the two of them as M8-M9 when Danger comes back – one of them can be on field, the other can go sharecropping down the south trying to make a enough pennies to put some gooseberries on the table for the in laws

        INPieman · 02/08/2017 at 22:11

        Just rigged up a keg of pure blonde onto Elliott & ET's front basket on the BMX & sent them off to deliver it to Hanners house. Crouching left a note that said "drink this Dan, same colour as your hair down stair"

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 23:54

    Selwood to be tagged by Hewett.
    Hanners will go 100+
    Dusty under 120.
    Fyfe to go 120+
    Crows wont get spanked, should be a close one, or crows run away with it.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 00:32

    Hey Bad News, apparently you died in 2007, that kinda sucks cause I was hoping you were the real Bad News Brown, always nice to have celebrities in Jock Reynolds 🙂

    Cogla13 · 03/08/2017 at 10:11

    With Danger out the Sydney boys will do a job on Selwood like they did on Mitchell last week. Wouldn't waste the VC on him.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2017 at 22:16

Cheat sheet – err here is a list of players for those with trades but for 90% with limited trades just something to read.

Was that a tumble weed blowing by?
It's quiet too quiet.

Something different for cheat sheet
Def – JJ the fwd
Mids – crouch cracking form of late , pod cogs
Ruck – Ryder rare air. If Kruezer misses storm moggs Creek.
Fwd – pod Douglas DPP
Fwd – insane but may just work deleido

Rookies hang onto every warm body you have you will need them

Danger, Lloyd , Witts, Kruezer, JPK – depending on your situation trade, hold or something in between.

Hang on the fun has only just begun.

    TheGreatBozza · 03/08/2017 at 12:23

    Cogs preseason injury ruined me. I had him locked away all pre season, then last minute changed my team around to bring in JPK instead

Snagged · 02/08/2017 at 22:19

JPK to either Neale/Oliver/Kelly?!

Please help!!

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 00:02


Thomas · 02/08/2017 at 22:27

Wheres the cheat sheet???

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 23:45

    Theres no cheating in finals!

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 02:03

    Why…you looking for a new cash cow?

Hubba · 02/08/2017 at 22:43

Why is everyone trading jpk?

    Whatyasmokin · 02/08/2017 at 23:44

    Because hes injured lol

    Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 00:07

    listed as test, but hamstrings don't need testing, just ask Sandiballs

Randomcliche2 · 02/08/2017 at 22:56

Cheat Sheet, sorry Lekdog…

Connor Glass (117k, m/d) if you want someone to play
Oscar Junker (104k, m/d) if you need a floating donut
Houli (567k) and Hurley (544k) are your podish defensive upgrade targets assuming you own the big 3 Doc, Adams, Laird, which may be relevant with Llyod sctechy.

Joel Selwood (481k)
Adam Treloar (494k)
Nat Fyfe (547k)
Parker (504k)
All of these players can go large is you are looking for a replacement and already own Dusty and Tom Mitchell.

Buy: Dawson Simpson, if you need a cheap Witts replacement to fix up another rookie to cover a premo JPK, Danger, Pendles, then there he is your man, s.t. being named, feel especially safe if Mumford not named.
Buy: Max Gawn Break even of stuff all, the big man is back in town, if you don't have him, and have Witts and 2 trades or more, do it.

Ryder: the form guy in the comp in the ruck/fwd section
Lester, bit of a left field option here, very low ownership, has proven can go large
Josh J Kennedy (435k): hitting form watch out
Sell: Nank, only if you don't have Witts….


    Rick Grimes · 03/08/2017 at 07:47

    I wouldn't recommend buying Treloar. Been a massive spud all year and even with Pendles out did stuff all. Grab Adams instead as he is gobbling up Pendles points. I'd have no qualms running him in your mids.

      Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 10:35

      I knew putting AT in here would rile some given his not so stellar season. I just think there is a chance, if not an obligation to step up now Pendles is injured.

      I'm very seriously considering putting an arm band Adams this week. I couldn't really put Adams as buy in the sheet as circa 96.9% of top 1000 teams already own him.

    neil Demons Delight · 03/08/2017 at 08:17

    I would have Duncan instead of Treloar too unreliable this time of year .Neale Bulleen well worth a look

      Rick Grimes · 03/08/2017 at 08:33

      Duncan has been great, M Crouch also one who is ultra consistent. NB could be one to watch for next season. This season will go down in history as a changing of the guards. Should be a lot of variety in teams next year as we try to find the next generation of uber premo.

        Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 10:40

        Yeah, should be interesting. Supercoach bible call of Matt Crouch came through!

      Randomcliche2 · 03/08/2017 at 10:40

      Neale Bulleen, nice call. I kinda wish I'd sneaked Gunston in as well.

      Agreed, Duncan has been super consistent, but I reckon he's behind both Crouch (more expensive) and Gibbs, similar price point.

Big G · 03/08/2017 at 09:41

Is Neale a good alternative to Oliver/Kelly/Merrett? Just looked at his numbers and he seems as consistent.

    Spudnik · 03/08/2017 at 19:20

    I'm tossing up but personally Ill probably go Oliver who doesn't go as big as Neale but is currently travelling very well. I already have Kelly and Zerrett and Kelly is the best of the three in my opinion.

Undypuncher · 03/08/2017 at 09:51

So i have three trades left nearly 200k in the bank and greenwood my laat upgrade to do infwd. Is this silly ? Im thinking trade danger to mcrae then mext week swap mcrae with greenwood amd trade him to danger ?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:14

    There'll probably be 4 more injuries before the final so I'd hold off on that.

Spudnik · 03/08/2017 at 19:16

Silly. You will find that Greenwodd, like the rest of the Adelaide team will score much better this week do keep him and save a trade for a more urgent matter such as Injuries/suspension.

    Soothsayer · 04/08/2017 at 14:25

    I believe his TOG is way down too. Wait for him to get a good run and his score will soar.

TBrab · 03/08/2017 at 19:25

Any thoughts on bringing in Shane Savage as a POD to replace Shaw the useless? He's been killing it last few games with a 3 round average of 111.7.

Giddyup baby · 03/08/2017 at 19:39

With Danger and JPK out, is J. Lloyd and S. Selwood good enough cover?
I finished top of my league, with 3 trades and 150k. So have a second chance.
My opponent look strong with also Danger and Witts out. Not sure what his cover is like or his trades.
Would be nice to get a W, enjoy a week off, get back Danger and JPK and use those trades for the last two weeks knowing I'll need them with "general soreness" and players "rested" a likely theme.
Cheers in advance for your thoughts and wisdom.
Good luck this weekend.

The Hoff · 03/08/2017 at 19:53

Who do i trade in for JPK

Orama daze · 03/08/2017 at 20:12

Like The Hoff above. I am trading out Kennedy because he maybe out for more than one game. I can trade someone for up to $560 so who is best out of Duncan, Oliver or Neale and why please.

    The Hoff · 03/08/2017 at 20:26

    Neale for sure already have him maybe Oliver tho but neale for me

musicissport · 03/08/2017 at 21:35

3 trades left – time for BANG BANG:

OUT Berry IN Ryder

1 trade & $133K left for final trade, team now looks like this:

DEF: Doc, Simmo, Howe, Rance, Heater, JJ (Witherden, Ryan)
MID: Titch, Adams, Fyfe, Jelwood, Parker, Treloar, Lloyd, DeGoey (Danger, Fisher, Bolton)
RUC: Ryder, Gawn (Witts)
FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Buddy, Heeney, Greenwood, Young (Parsons, Strnadica)

JAL · 04/08/2017 at 00:33

Hibberd or Hurley??

    NoLanguage · 04/08/2017 at 10:43

    Both if you can. Had Hibberd since Round 10 can't fault him, Hurley came in for Newman last week also happy there!

Brad · 04/08/2017 at 12:25

5 trades left and in top 4….. i look to be in abit of strife on paper vs top place who has only dropped 2 games.

double trade and a week off may be the go? we both have jpk and danger and i think he will use bench cover. tempted to pounce on his weaknesses and try and snag a week off?

– greenwood/nank and jpk to ryder and rocky (ballsy but cheap a good schedule with 3 gabba games, surely gives me something) and bank 80-100k for next week

– greenwood/nank and DANGER to oliver and ryder (he has both) and bank 155-175k

-jpk sideways or downgrade to a rocky for $$$$

– wing it, use my cover and reasses with 5 trades next week looking down the barrell.

NOTE: have bench cover in witherden/bolton/parsons/soldo/sharenberg all over the ground.
