SuperCoach RD20: LekDog’s Cheat Sheet

Published by Lekdog on


G’day Community,

Welcome to a wrathful Cheat Sheet.

The SuperCoach Gods giveth and they taketh away. Even though Patrick Dangerfield has been taken from us at the peak of his powers I choose to look at this as an opportunity. Danger can now be turned into two 110+ players (assuming you have trades and a potential upgrade like Adelaide’s Greenwood) which in the longterm…well the next four weeks, will net you more points than simply holding onto Danger. You name a player in the competition and you can turn Dangerfield into that man, just as Jock turned Gatorade into VB.

In terms of the rest of the issues we have…there are a few of them. Kreuzer is likely to miss and Witts is gone, luckily we have Gawn or Ryder to fill those spots. If you have Kennedy in the midfield well I don’t feel confident that he’ll play so you could consider trading. Blakely was given the Lek of death and is done for the year after TWO shoulder injuries on the weekend, he’s priced well enough that finding a replacement shouldn’t be too hard.

What about Shaw? What about Dahlhaus? What about ever bloody player in either my side or Patch’s?


The season is not over but it’s close. Put yourself in the best position you can to win your league or play for rank, get ready for a few weeks off before preseason begins. We can now start to look at 2018 and the bargains we have coming our way, Rocky at Port, Kelly at Carlton, Gibbs at Adelaide…we have a lot of exciting times approaching and the drive to better ourselves in the coming offseason should drive us now.

Focus on the positives and forget the injuries and low scores, tomorrow is a new day.

Out Greenwood for M.Crouch or C.Oliver?

    Corey · 03/08/2017 at 10:15

    holding Danger (only have 3 Trades left)……

    benjamin B · 03/08/2017 at 10:33

    Id go oliver

    jez_m · 03/08/2017 at 11:49

    Oliver for ceiling

    GloryDays90 · 03/08/2017 at 13:21

    Oliver for higher ceiling but Crouch if you want consistant as he hasnt been under 100 since round 9

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:43

    I like Crouch as a P.O.D

The Master · 03/08/2017 at 10:07

Thanks for the cheat sheet Lekdog, I look forward to them each week. My season has not been the greatest, gone from 550 something last year to trying to get inside the top 20,000 this year. didn't make the top 8 in any of my leagues, finished 9th and I'm a tiger supporter. At least they are doing better this year. Just used my last 2 trades to upgrade Shaw to Doc, and Sean Darcy to Gawn to finish off the season. I have good back up and will hold Danger and still have Toby Green on pine. Best of luck to everyone for the finals.

    jez_m · 03/08/2017 at 11:51

    Your season sounds similar to mine. Finished mid-400's overall last season and now struggling to crack the top 10,000

      The Master · 03/08/2017 at 13:02

      Its been an upside down season jez, however I have still loved it. You need a little luck every now and then.

        jez_m · 03/08/2017 at 17:05

        Yeah exactly. Picking the right players, making the right moves at the right time, picking a couple of POD players – you need a lot of things to go right to get to the very pointy end of the rankings.

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:45

    This has been my worst season in years but probably the most fun I've had. So many injuries and crucial starting decisions that worked/didn't work and the changing of guard in terms of premos has been awesome.

    New tactics for next year will be fun.

    Love the trades by the way

      Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:01

      Agree tough but fun year. Last year was kind of 'easy' with all the bombers.

benjamin B · 03/08/2017 at 10:33

Trade in Ryder and only be able to afford the likes of Neale so on
trade in JJK/potentially heeney and be able to afford TITCH?

    Slatsy · 03/08/2017 at 11:13

    Ryder and Neale more reliable for mine

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:45

    Neale and Ryder mroe appealing to me

SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2017 at 11:19

Heater the first to get the dreaded black background colour?

Neale worth a mention this week v Suns. In 9% of sides and has a decent ceiling

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 11:45

    He is the first to get a black background of death, others have come close but he is officially done.

    Yeha Neale almost came into sheet but I've had him in pretty recently. A very good pickup

    Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2017 at 12:27

    yep, bought him in with my last trade, very happy 156!

Tommo · 03/08/2017 at 12:04

Got 4 trades left and need help

Option 1
JPK and Danger out for The Bont and Ryder (swinging Macrae into mid) leaving me with 2 trades and $193k in the bank


Option 2
JPK to Bont leaving me with 3 trades $9200 in the bank and covering Danger with Wiherden


    SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2017 at 12:19

    Would go option 2 if in a qualifying final. Danger will be back and has 2/3 games at Simonds to finish the year

    Elimination final then leave nothing in the tank. Target an in form mid rather than Bont. Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, MCrouch

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:46

    Option two if not going for rank

Paul · 03/08/2017 at 14:23

Not sure what to do this week, any thoughts appreciated – probably don't want to trade out Danger, have two leagues that I want to win, one an elimination final, other qualifying:

5 trades, $36k

Docherty, Adams, Laird, Roberton, Lloyd, Rance (Ryan, M Hibberd)
Danger, Merrett, Neale, Bontempelli, Fyfe, Selwood, Hannebery, Rockliff (Witherden, Bolton, Cousins)
Gawn, Martin (Strnadica)
Macrae, Yeo, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Heeney, Nankervis (Durdin, Eddy)

    Ima Librarian · 04/08/2017 at 10:35

    Danger and Nank out Paul….TMitch / Sidey / Beams and Ryder in

Northerner · 03/08/2017 at 14:58

Ross considering resting Sean Darcy. Course he is. Been holding him precisely for a late out situation and now when I likely to need him to cover Kruezer, Ross is up to his usual tricks. Already needing to go Witts to Gawn this week. Ross Lyon is obviously a puppet of one of the SC gods.

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:46

    He controls everything, head of the Supercoach illuminati

    Tripp · 03/08/2017 at 16:44

    Need Darcy to play this week!! If I win I get a week off then Ross the boss can rest the lad! No doubt he will be rested this week! Only 2 trades left that's why I'm stressing!!want those for later!!! Of course wouldn't be an issue if Tobias friggen Greene wasn't suspended!!!

      Derek · 03/08/2017 at 18:46

      i'm lucky, i have Pickett to cover for darcy.

        Northerner · 03/08/2017 at 21:24


    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:49

    It's ok, he wasn't rested, he was 'managed'

Relton · 03/08/2017 at 15:01

Wingards on my bench and playing greenwood M8. is he gonna be back in the next 1-2 weeks or am i better off tradin him? i only got him in the week he got injured haha who could i trade him to if so??

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:48

    Earliest he comes back is Round 21 but could be later, I'd trade him

John · 03/08/2017 at 15:40

Have 5 trades and $87k in the bank. Don't what trades I'm gonna do this week any suggestions? Either thinking of upgrading JPK to Martin or upgrading Shaw.

DEF: Docherty, Hurley, Laird, Simpson, Adams, Shaw (Witherden, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Zorko, Merrett, Fyfe, JPK, Bont, Treloar, Jelwood (Bolton, Cousins, Glass)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (English)
FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Yeo, Greewnood (Strnadica, Young)


    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 15:49

    With Witherdan and Ryan in defence I'd just play one of them over Shaw. I'd actually look to upgrade Greenwood if you can.

      John · 03/08/2017 at 16:25

      Cheers Lekdog. Do you think I could downgrade anyone? Because if I can downgrade someone I can get rid of jpk or shaw if I really wanted to.

Thomas · 03/08/2017 at 16:03

Who to VC?
Jelwood, Fyfe Neale, Bont, Treloar, Doc

    jez_m · 03/08/2017 at 17:07

    Jelwood or Fyfe for mine. Selwood's performances at the Cattery this year (excluding his KO) have been outstanding. Fyfe's last month has also been solid.

      Don't Blush Baby · 03/08/2017 at 18:11

      Fyfe into Dusty or Titch for me at this stage

      Relton · 03/08/2017 at 18:13

      Im VC'n jelwood into fyfe.

Ben · 03/08/2017 at 16:05

I know its a bit of a left field option, but thinking about bringing Rocky in at M9. Feel like he will turn it around and at his price, even if he doesnt, its not so bad as i am not relying on him on field. Thoughts?

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:04

    Yep loopholing a potentially dodgy midfielder could be key to winning. As long as other lines are strong its a good move.

KrazeeEyezK1lla · 03/08/2017 at 17:12

Stick with Rocky or not? suuuuuuuuuuuurely he's gonna come good (although we've said that every week for 2 months)

Dave2008 · 03/08/2017 at 17:35

The forwards are so hard this year to pick! I was bringing in Yeo for Wingard but his form has really dropped. I will also bring in Gawn for Nank this week but I may hold Wingard as a POD going forward if I think I can beat Jay Clark this week. Then who else is a good trade in?
6 trades left 123000 in the bank in qualifying final going for league only.

My team is
D Doc Adams Simpsons Roberton Laird Lloyd (Ryan Hibberd)
M Dusty Selwood Fyfe Bont Hannaberry S Mitchell Treloar Witherdon (Pickett Myers Danger)
R Grundy Nank (Strandica)
F McRae Dal Buddy Ryder Wingard Butler Young Greenwood

A Heeney
B J Martin
C Yeo
D JJK (key forward….)

Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

Tripp · 03/08/2017 at 17:46

Wonder who Scooter Selwood will tag fri night If no JPK?? Got Scooter as my Danger cover this week fingers crossed he doesn't pull a hammy, gets 22 tackles and 100+ SC points yeeeewwwllll!!

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:06

    Hes just gotta stop tackling before they get the ball, umpires were all over him against Sloane the other week.

    B rian · 04/08/2017 at 04:46

    with Danger out and jelwood getting a heavy tag from Hewitt, I reckon they might need scooter to run free and win some ball

Jim_bob321 · 03/08/2017 at 17:54

Zorko or Bont VC?
Would eventually go into Fyfe C
Cheers community

Daniel · 03/08/2017 at 18:30

With only 1 trade remaining and Danger,JPK and Pendles in my midfield do I use it this week? I'm top 4 in all 10 of my leagues. If so, who should I trade out between Pendles and JPK?

    INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 18:40


    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 18:55

    Pendles wont be back

Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:35

Pickett's playing everyone!….lol

    INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 18:42

    Guttered I got rid of him

      Derek · 03/08/2017 at 18:44

      Danger to Picket!!

        Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:46

        Shark move of the year Derek! 🙂

      Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:45

      Haha, I got rid of him last week for Young, probably didn't need to now.

Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:37

Kreuzer and Mummy playing, JPK out,

    hedski · 03/08/2017 at 19:05

    Kreuzer needs a week off after that vicious head knock.

Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:40

Goldy's back too, big prick!

Tyruddanaut · 03/08/2017 at 18:41

OOOOOOHHHHHHHHH……. Who should I field out of the absolute star of the game Nank and everyone's super coach favourite Dixon. 3rd option is Greenwood and ditch both of them which wouldn't give me much safety in the midfield selection.

My captaincy picks this week consist of Franklin VC and Kelly C due to my availability over the weekend not being able for me to have multiple on the same day. AND THE SATURDAY IS WHEN ALL MY GOOD ONES ARE PLAYING. Of course, I can always trade in Vickery and captain him.

Thoughts, community?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 18:50

    Solvol named on extended bench, but I reckon he'll be dropped to E.

      Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 19:11

      When and where are Sundays teams named?

        hedski · 03/08/2017 at 19:50

        Bout 5 o'clock tomorrow Fishy.

          Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 19:58

          Cheers Hedski. On the Herald Sun site? I can never find them.

            hedski · 03/08/2017 at 20:19

            AFL live app or mate, get the app its sweet, herald sun get there info from there half an hour later.

              Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 23:42

              Thanks hedski

      Defying_Madness · 03/08/2017 at 19:35

      I don't think he will be dropped, they need a tall since Jack is out so Nank will stay forward.

        hedski · 03/08/2017 at 20:21

        Ah crap, thought Jack was back.

          Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:59

          Yeah me too…Maybe his eye fell out into his hand 🙂

Joshua · 03/08/2017 at 18:56

Shaw to Tmitch +Kennedy to Oliver leaves me with 2 trades and i also have a donut in Witts, I'm limping to the finish line.

    INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 19:08

    You need warm bodies. Look to trade the donut first

Oliver · 03/08/2017 at 19:03

Need a bit of help this week!

My initial plan was: OUT Danger & Greenwood -> IN Oliver & Ryder but now JPK is also out.

What are my best options in this case? Do I keep Greenwood in this case and trade out both Danger & JPK for e.g Oliver & Dusty?

Leaves me with 1 trade, $200k and Greenwood (Approx $586k) – Just enough to get Ryder in next week ($556k this week).

    bUCKET__ · 03/08/2017 at 20:17

    Like your original plan. Can emg Barrett and if you don't like his score bring Mountford onto the field.

    Or you could swing Greenwood to the mids and upgrade Barrett to Ryder. Opens up a swingset which could be handy. Greenwood seems better bench coverage than Barrett.

    Greenwood mightn't even play still, that'd make the decision easier!

hedski · 03/08/2017 at 19:15

Mummy, Rooey and Lloyd back this week helps but its a crap week for my fwd line looping, most play Sunday, looper is sat night.
OK guys, my two cash league opposition both have Lloyd (so do I), do I play safe and loop Tuohy who they don't have or play Tuohy and loop Lloyd for an advantage? Not sure which is smarter, doin my head in a bit. Cheers.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2017 at 19:38

    As they all have Lloyd play Lloyd and loop Touhy.
    Advantage hedski.

      The Ranger · 03/08/2017 at 19:42

      Yep. What he said.

    hedski · 03/08/2017 at 19:55

    Yeah thanks Trigga/Ranger, Witherden on standby for Tuohy then.
    Spewin if Lloyd spuds it tho and Tuohy does well, could be a nice leg up.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2017 at 19:24

Stuck on this one now JPK is out.

Can trade cousins to say JJK or
Shaz to Ryder giving cover in case kruez is a late out.

With Danger and JPK out this means I have to either play Newman and Shaw on the ground with greenwood a swinging mid/fwd bench emergency
Loop Newman or Shaw (which one?) and play greenwood on field?

Two big outs in the mids gonna sting this week

Normal course of events would be:
Ryan and Newman E in Def
Greenwood/Witherden E in mids
Greenwood E in Fwd

But this ain't no normal course if events.

    Derek · 04/08/2017 at 00:01

    It's annoying cats and swans play first.

    I have Witherden and Greenwood to cover the two out in midfield (or Pickett) and usually we could loop them, not this week.

Rucky · 03/08/2017 at 19:30

I have to go Witts out & can't afford Grundy. Gawn or McEvoy in? Thanks

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2017 at 19:30


The Ranger · 03/08/2017 at 19:33

3 trades. $105K. Elimination final. Danger and JPK out.
Cover them with Adams and Lloyd into the mids which puts Ryan and Witherden onfield and means I loop Newman and Scharenberg thru Junker?
Would only leave Bolton as bench cover in the mids.
Or trade JPK to Dusty leaving me 2 trades and bugger all cash?

    Tyruddanaut · 03/08/2017 at 19:59

    Take the trade

      Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:11


    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:57

    If you think JPK will play next week, use your bench cover and DPP's, that's what they are there for.

      The Ranger · 04/08/2017 at 09:54

      OK. Hands up who thinks JPK will play next week?

The Hoff · 03/08/2017 at 19:54

Who do i trade in for JPK

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:11

    Anyone good who's playing? Dont know budget or the mids you already have……

Josh · 03/08/2017 at 19:54

Trading out JPK; who should I get Zorko or Oliver?

    The Hoff · 03/08/2017 at 19:55

    I already have Zorko Gun

    Tyruddanaut · 03/08/2017 at 20:00

    Oliver is more predictable. And I only predict the best

garfield_da_cat · 03/08/2017 at 20:00

4 trades left and 116k in my bank
I want to trade cameron out this week but don't know who out of dahniher, heeney and ryder to trade in? I currently have Yeo, Macrae, Dahlhaus, Franklin, Cameron, Houston on field in my Fwdline. I also am going to trade witts out for gawn so after all this Ryder would leave me with $7500, Heeney 85k and Dahniher 118k left over. I need to think about bringing in someone good but also having money left over to upgrade Houston next week to someone half decent. Please help me guys

    Joshua · 03/08/2017 at 20:06


    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:01

    I'd go for broke Garfield and get the best forward, Ryder.

      garfield_da_cat · 04/08/2017 at 10:20

      only problem is if i get Ryder i don't have much money left to upgrade Houston. I was thinking of upgrading Cameron to Daniher this week and next week when Heeney drops in price going Houston to Heeney. What do you think?

    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:55

    Pay the Price

bUCKET__ · 03/08/2017 at 20:08

Greenwood -> Deledio
Scooter -> Neale

leaves 1 trade. gotta say it feels good to live dangerously

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:13

    Far too expensive for a bloke that hasnt played in that long……

      bUCKET__ · 03/08/2017 at 21:44


    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:54

    Delidio will get about 50 mins game time this week. Waste of trade

Joshua · 03/08/2017 at 20:08

Witts to ryder and Kennedy to Tmitch instead of Shaw to Tmitch and Kennedy to Oliver?

    INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 21:28

    Sounds good to me

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:00

    Yes….sounds good.

Don't Blush Baby · 03/08/2017 at 20:11

I want to trade in Dusty, does anyone think he may back off on his output with the Brownlow on his mind ?

    Doc · 03/08/2017 at 20:46

    No. Get him in.

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:13

    No he'll increase it.

Shake n bake · 03/08/2017 at 20:30

Danger to fyfe this week looks like my only trade as l can bring back in Mummy, Ryder can go fwd. still have 5 trades with $297k in the kitty.

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 21:14

    Why not just bench Danger and upgrade someone?

      hedski · 03/08/2017 at 21:22

      Cos it's Shaker.

      Shake n bake · 03/08/2017 at 21:52

      Still might use 2nd trade to upgrade Shaw. Ill just have to wait n see.

Soothsayer · 03/08/2017 at 20:38

Ok, how about Danger and JPK OUT FOR DUSTY and …. wait for it….. ABLETT!!!

    LEKD0G · 03/08/2017 at 21:54

    Given Gaz will probably just skip this game I wouldn't go him

      Choice · 03/08/2017 at 22:05

      Be interesting if he does fly west

        Soothsayer · 04/08/2017 at 14:39

        A surprise 200 could be handy if he travels. Anyone at the airport over there?

Alby · 03/08/2017 at 20:43

Thinking of off loading JPK to Martin and Greenwood to Kennedy which will leave me 2 trades left is this cutting it to fine I am in the elimination final of a cash league .

    Whatyasmokin · 03/08/2017 at 20:56

    So you will exit finals if you lose. And youre wondering if you should be holding 4 trades if that happens. Hmmmm

      INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 21:35

      If your in an elimination final with 2 trades left you use them both if the match is going to be close. With 4 you use 2 wisely. Don't die wondering

    Finnius123 · 03/08/2017 at 21:49

    Do it

Doc · 03/08/2017 at 20:43

Have 1 last trade left.
Snuck into 4th in my league.

Do I save my trade and cover Cameron's out with greenwood, or trade in Billings ??

    INPieman · 03/08/2017 at 21:31

    Save the trade if your top 4. Use it next week if you have to

Hazey · 03/08/2017 at 21:16

Kelly at Carlton… Dreaming

Shayne · 03/08/2017 at 21:36

finished 8th in my league and looking to trade JPK but for who?
Oliver, Kelly or Zerrett

    Leeds17 · 04/08/2017 at 05:57

    Seb Ross an option too

Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 21:44

Any chance Greenwood could get left out?…Adelaide's extended bench looks pretty strong this week.

    Choice · 03/08/2017 at 22:06

    Yeah I reckon he's out

    Rocknroll · 04/08/2017 at 00:41

    He will play. Most Adelaide players had an off day last week and Pyle loves him.

Very Stuck · 03/08/2017 at 21:48

Please help!!! 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

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:14

    I'd say..get rid of Witts for Mumford and JPK for Fyfe, and bring Adams into the mids to cover Danger..and then choose between Withers and Ryan who starts back.
    Alternatively you could move Ryder to Ruck by trading Witts to a fwd via the S-dpp…say Josh Kennedy Eagles?

      Very Stuck · 04/08/2017 at 07:20

      Thanks so much. I appreciate it.

Osei · 03/08/2017 at 22:00

Hey Guys, hoping all is going well with your finals preperations.
As it stands i have a 21 with JPK and patty out. I have one trade left, and the best mid i can afford is Merrett. Do i use the trade or hold as i progress to next week in my money league because of top 4?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:05

    I'd hold mate, and hope JPK gets back next week.

      Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:50


Ben · 03/08/2017 at 22:15

Trade options 4 left
1)Kennedy to fyfe
2) danger to gazza and Myers to fyfe at m9
3)danger to fyfe and Bolton to Ryder leaving Lynch f7
4) Kennedy to fyfe and Myers to cousins freeing up cash for last 2 trades

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:25

    Only option I can see that makes any sense is 1)…depends on where you are in your league I guess, but Danger will be back next week, Myers is Playing, Bolton might be playing, and why on earth would you want to trade Cousins in?

    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:49

    I'd just do 1

Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 22:46

Why was my comment regarding Sunday teams deleted?
I need to know where the updated teams gets named tomorrow night?
Is it on the herald sun site because I can never find it?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:49

    Hey Dan, I don't think it was deleted…I read it a little while ago…best place is mate, click on AFL on the top menu and then go to all the teams.

      Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 22:54

      Thank you Russty

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:54

    It's still there, under a comment starting with OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH BY Tyraddanaut.

      Fisher Dan · 03/08/2017 at 23:41

      Seems like the only comment I didnt check. My bad. Thanks again Russty

        Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:46

        No probs Dan, the Teams normally come in about 6.30 EST, 4.30 Perth time…on

jamie · 03/08/2017 at 22:53

Hibberd as a sneaky VC option? Thinking if Ryan can put up 130 then surely Hibberd could go big.

Or is having to keep nank making me crazy??

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 22:58

    Yeah that's just crazy-ness Jamie lol

Greg · 03/08/2017 at 22:58

I don't want to trade Danger, is it worth going Ryan to Glass and Witherden to T Mitchell to cover danger this week? Means I lose my dpp swing from mid to defence and would leave rocky as my m9 once Danger is back.

Currently have 5 trades and also have Nank.

TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2017 at 23:03

You need a captain this week?

Answer = Dustin Martin.

This guy will play with adrenaline through his veins now Danger is ineligible for the Brownlow.


    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:12

    Oliver into Fyfey for me this week Hawk, who are you VC-ing and C-ing.?

      TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2017 at 23:44

      I am looking at Taylor Adams as VC and Dusty as captain.

      Not yet signed in stone, but looking very tempting.

      We might clash later in Pine Lodge. I am hunting Underdorkers!

      Good luck in this year's SC finals series!

        Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:48

        Hahah yeah I saw that mate, good luck to you too bud, I hope you only lose to me by one point 😉

    Russty_ · 03/08/2017 at 23:16

    Just make sure he doesn't go to a Chinese Restaurant before the game..and give him a fork if he does.

    Derek · 03/08/2017 at 23:47

    He might do ok, the way the hawks will tag him every possession will be contested

    Russty_ · 04/08/2017 at 00:06

    I'm not even going to watch the Brownlow this year, the rules are shite, Danger wasn't trying to lay an unfair or illegal tackle and listening to Dusty's speech would be excruciating, the guy can hardly string a sentence together, Danger is eloquent and humorous, and would've been much more enjoyable to hear.
    The eligibility rules should be changed to say, 3 votes deducted for a suspension…and that's it, it was accidental for fk's sake.

      Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 06:51

      There is this concept of "intentional" in the MRP criteria. They should use that as the trigger for eligibility for the Brownlow. How many head high bump suspensions would you say were intentional? Not many. A player knows the risk that is they go the bump and hit the head they're gone. That's the risk they take, but none would hit the head intentionally. If you lost the plot and wanted to intentionally hit someone you'd throw an elbow or a fist.

inNout · 04/08/2017 at 00:13

Lads, 2 trades left. Not much cash in the bank. Can upgrade newman to rance and JPK to Neale/Kelly/Ross/Merret this week. Have cover on every line. If I hold I may not be able to upgrade backline next week due to insufficient cash. Should i pull the trigger with 0 trade ? Also which of the 4 should I get to replace JPK ?

    Russty_ · 04/08/2017 at 00:29

    Where do you stand in your leagues inNout?…are you in the top 4, or in an elimination final?
    If you're in elimination, I'd say do it, and JPK to Neale…if you're in the top 4, maybe hold on Newman, he did get 93 last week.

      inNout · 04/08/2017 at 14:07

      thank You Russty_ top 4 in 2 out of 3 leagues. 1 in elimination final. Will do just the JPK trade then. thanks again

    B rian · 04/08/2017 at 04:37

    trade jpk. Hold newman. you will need that trade

      inNout · 04/08/2017 at 14:07

      Thank you B rian. Will do just that.

Porpoise · 04/08/2017 at 00:48

Trading Kennedy, Sydney for a player less than $561K so it is out of Oliver, Duncan, Ward or Neale.
Oliver's average was inflated because of his massive 170 last week whilst Duncan and Ward are in good form and Neale has dropped off a little but is capable of big points.
Who should I select and why.

    Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 06:45

    I'm concerned Fyfe's resurgence is having an impact on Neale. He's still good but maybe taking some points off him.

    Both Ward and Duncan have historically gone on "form runs" and then can have some quieter periods. I'm a huge fan of Oliver's game. His inside clearance handballs are harder to nullify with a tag than tagging the outside runner's he's handing off to. His floor has been high for that reason. But he is only a second year player.

    Neale or Oliver. Toss a coin.

    Whatyasmokin · 04/08/2017 at 16:36

    Neale hasn't gone over 117 since round 12, not sure he's going to go big with Fyfe firing.

My Dianne · 04/08/2017 at 00:55

Don't know what to do folks if Greenwood isn't selected. Surely he won't be dropped after one ordinary game? Only have $455K so who to get in out of Kennedy, Daniher or maybe Roughead? Leaning to Kennedy at this stage because he has a couple of home games in the West and he is capable of going big, but, I'm not sure.

    Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 06:40

    Kennedy is a solid selection.

The renovator · 04/08/2017 at 01:09

Just got home from work Lekdog (It's 1.00am) and I won't be able to sleep unless I get my SC problem off my chest before I have a decent sleep.
Lekdog, you have left me pondering about your Danger trade suggestion. I suppose you mean that one should have at least 5 trades and I have only 4. Dangerfield to Dusty and Kennedy, Sydney to Oliver would leave me with $98K and two trades. Should I do the trades and sell off someone the following week to trade back Danger leaving me with 1 trade. I finished 2nd in my league.

    B rian · 04/08/2017 at 04:33

    If only it were that simple. The problem is Danger costs 126k more than the next most expensive player. You cant afford him with just one trade.

Loonybin · 04/08/2017 at 02:19

Who is best to play on field? Witherdon or Ryan and why thanks.

    Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 06:38

    Witherden has much higher floor IMO. Ryan will depend too much on how the game plays out. A bit like Jeremy Howe.

    Whatyasmokin · 04/08/2017 at 16:33

    Witherden for sure. Ryan has four scores of 67 points or lower.

Help Pls · 04/08/2017 at 03:48

4 trades left, shaw to Howe or Hurley for extra 65k?

Leeds17 · 04/08/2017 at 06:10

A little bit of scouting for next season,

I notice Geelong are slowly losing patience with Rhys Stanley to the point I wouldn't be surprised to see him leave at seasons end,

Zac Smith has a seasonal average of 88.4, 74 with Stanley in the team, 98.5 without Stanley in the team that includes a injury affected 37 as well.

    Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 09:57

    True cheap premos. Cripps would be first target. Fyfe should be good value again. Gawn. All below full price.

    Northerner · 04/08/2017 at 09:59

    Actually, this is a great idea for a post SC season post. Lek, worth considering a "tell us who your 2018 targets are" stream after SC GF?

Hazey · 04/08/2017 at 06:57

Fella's, I have a conundrum! I feel a bit like I've chaeated on your all, but I entered a DreamTeam cash league at the last minute for a mate. It was their last spot and I never really paid attention to it, but I've finished 2nd. The comp use with $700 for the winner, which would be really handy for a young family.

This week I'm thinking Withereden and Ryan to Glass and Dusty to put Danger on the bench. Hanners on field this week, them to M9 next week


Ryan and Greenwood to Glass and Ryder with Dalhaus moving to the bench and Withereden onfield for Danger?

Jimmy · 04/08/2017 at 07:21

Have 5 trades and $87k in the bank. I need someone to downgrade to get some cash, any suggestions?

DEF: Docherty, Hurley, Laird, Simpson, Adams, Shaw (Witherden, Ryan)
MID: Danger, Zorko, Merrett, Fyfe, JPK, Bont, Treloar, Jelwood (Bolton, Cousins, Glass)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (English)
FWD: Macrae, Franklin, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Yeo, Greewnood (Strnadica, Young)


    Burns. · 04/08/2017 at 08:05

    I'm in the same situation, might not be the best advice but I ended up trading out Shaw to D.Joyce from the saints so I could loop Ryan and Withers for the rest of the year and to have a fair bit of cash to upgrade some on field spud premo players for myself.

    SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2017 at 08:11

    Your only real choices for worthwhile cash are Bolton or Ryan. You don't particularly need a D8 with Witherden doing so well, and he can cover two lines swinging with Glass.

    You can get 100k out of Bolton by trading him to a 102k rook. Safer move

Froglet · 04/08/2017 at 08:46

Zorko or Dusty?

    BRAD · 04/08/2017 at 10:08

    Dusty, Zorko will cop the tag this week

TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2017 at 08:54

Hi Community,

If you had these 5 under performing premos who would you trade out first……and why? One of these dudes is departing this week. Cheers

*Adam Treloar.
*Daniel Hannebery
*Elliot Yeo
*Heath Shaw
*Luke Dahlhaus

    Richard · 04/08/2017 at 10:20

    Shaw. Not even looking like having a decent score. Ended up at half forward last week. Glory days over.

    neil Demons Delight · 04/08/2017 at 11:45

    Without a doubt toppa its SHAW. Been hopeless all year The others are also but have more good games

The subbie · 04/08/2017 at 08:54

Who to trade out Schaza or Ryan to generate enough cash for Zorko the Magnificent.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2017 at 09:09

    Get rid of Scharenberg. Ryan is a genuine Supercoach scorer with his intercept marks, etc. Then grab Zorko mate!!

Jimmy · 04/08/2017 at 09:13

To trade or not to trade that is the question? I have 4 trades left and I have finished top 4 in 4 out of my 5 leagues.The guy I'm playing in the league I care about has more trades than me and even if I do trade there's a chance I will lose. I'm thinking of just seeing what happens as either way I can't get eliminated and worse case I'm using those trades in the Semi- Final next week

Doc · 04/08/2017 at 09:17

Doch or Bont vc into Dusty c

    Tommo · 04/08/2017 at 09:50


Jack · 04/08/2017 at 09:22

bring cotchin or murphy in

BRAD · 04/08/2017 at 10:07

Steff or Gawn ?

    Jess · 04/08/2017 at 10:27


Richard · 04/08/2017 at 10:17

Thinking of playing Ryan and benching Shaw. Thoughts please?

    Jess · 04/08/2017 at 10:27

    Can you loophole shaw?

    davo · 04/08/2017 at 10:28

    Doing the same, a little risky, no faith in shaw though

Tommo · 04/08/2017 at 10:19

Will Kreuzer play this week?

    Cogla13 · 04/08/2017 at 10:56

    I'm saving a trade for a potential late out. He needs to pass a last minute concussion test. If he's out its Kreuz to Gawn.

BRAD · 04/08/2017 at 10:28

Who to bring in for Darcy and danger??

John · 04/08/2017 at 11:02

5 trades $87k in the bank. Thinking of trading Bolton to Allison to free up some cash, then upgrading JPK to Dusty. Thoughts?

    The Ranger · 04/08/2017 at 12:10

    With 5 trades left I'd def do it.

neil Demons Delight · 04/08/2017 at 11:41

The winners of the top 4 are really not rewarded enough.Let me explain I win game 1 and have a bye but do I Two of my players Danger and Jelwood have just collided at the opening bounce and are season outs scoring 2 and 6 The guy I beat has Treloar AND Pendles and wins easily I now have my best two players out and I had a bye. FAIR not to me winners of the top 4 should be rewarded with trades. which brings me to this I have Soldo and Witts should I trade witts to Gawn now and sacrifice a trade or go with Soldos 40.. knowing I shall lose but that doesn't really matter

    Cogla13 · 04/08/2017 at 12:42

    Preserving trades is part of the game. People in the top 4 have probably got there by burning more trades, why should they then be rewarded with more trades? Those with trades through the finals have an advantage but they may not be top 4. It's a game, which strategy wins?

    Whatyasmokin · 04/08/2017 at 16:31

    Extra trades? No.

    Dean · 04/08/2017 at 23:36

    Extra trades for making top 4 is beyond absurd.

    That is the whole point of this game, trades play the biggest factor in this game. Can you imagine those who are ranked in the top 10 of the rank, a lot of those guys would have 1 or 2 maybe 3 at the most trades left.

    Now tonight Jelwood gets injured although I don't think he will miss any games, but if he was out next week then quite a few of those top ranked players could quite easily slip out of the top 1000 or 5000 depending how many donuts or cover players playing.

    You can NEVER add more trades to those who are doing better. Its just your or my bad luck if we chose to burn trades or even if our teams a riddled with injury, that's what makes this game so strategically awesome, frustrating or hurtful at times.

    WHY ME!!! : o(

Dean · 04/08/2017 at 23:17

Gawn or Mummy – Who would you select? I cannot afford anyone else.
