SuperCoach Finals Week 1: FAT CHEW

Published by Jock on



Not much came out of last night on the captain option front – those who had the VC on Selwood or bloody Budd won’t be to happy. Let’s rip it a part in the comments below.
Again, we’re looking likely to fill our Draftstars Richmond v Hawthorn $2 buy-in tomorrow – make sure you whack a team in here quick.




Let’s discuss this captain situation below.


INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 12:43

Lance Bloody Buddy Franklin. Welcome to the banned for life club! Prick

    jockreynolds · 05/08/2017 at 12:45

    What a SOILING he has lain uponst us in BLOODY FINALS Pie. BLOODY FINALS BUD.

      INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 13:01

      Indeed old mate. And of course opponents don't have him

      Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 15:50

      I would like to lay my fisteth uponst his flogethy face Jock after that pathetic effort last night!

    BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2017 at 12:50

    Add him to the long list after this year Pieman. Seems a lot more than usual this year.

      Big G · 05/08/2017 at 12:56

      wasn't he putrid

        INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 13:00

        Absolutely Rubbish Big G

          Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:39

          Lonergan once again does the job!

      INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 13:04

      Very long list BB. Many names we would never have dared to thought of in preseason will be added come seasons end. But the rollercoaster that is Buddy has crashed & should never be boarded again

        BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2017 at 13:21

        Shaw, Kennedy, Treloar to name a few.

        SC_Kev7 · 05/08/2017 at 13:23

        Absolutely done with him. In the same spirit of Stevie J and Toby Greene becoming Steven Johnson and Tobias Greene respectively for their many underpant soiling and general flog like qualities, I propose, as a community, we drop the "Buddy" from his title and henceforth will be known as his proper name – Lancelot Franklin

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 23:13

          My preference is "spuddy"

            Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 23:17

            How about Lance Wanklin…..
            Spuddy Wanklin

            Duddy Franklin

            Duddy Wanklin

            Dud Wankstain…:)

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 09:25

    As I wrote in the preseason

    No buddy way for me

    Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 09:45

    Club list is getting a lot longer this year pie

BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2017 at 12:49

McVeigh inclusion has really hurt Lloyd.

Westy · 05/08/2017 at 12:51

Had Selwood VC.
Thinking Fyfe C.
Can have any of the others. Thinking Martin might get more attention from Howe (not that it will probably affect him).

    jockreynolds · 05/08/2017 at 12:52

    VC Bont into C Dusty here Westy

      Westy · 05/08/2017 at 12:55

      Solid Jock

        jockreynolds · 05/08/2017 at 13:29

        Change of plans – Zorko into Dusty. Just showed Adam Treloar the door

          hedski · 05/08/2017 at 14:03

          Ouch, that could bite you Jock, hoping Treloar goes big!

          hedski · 05/08/2017 at 21:36

          I hope you didn't go Treloar to Zorko mate?

          Westy · 05/08/2017 at 23:36

          Stuck fat with Fyfe, significant. Good luck with Dusty

Bells · 05/08/2017 at 12:52

Papley hard done by. 3 first quarter goals blew the game apart. 83 points.
Buddy is nowhere atm.
My Swannies are killing me in SC but doing the business on the table.
Kennedy, Hanners, Buddy…all in the dog house. Unless Hanners can start actually running again next year.

    Leeds17 · 05/08/2017 at 12:56

    Big watch on Papley for the future looks to be on a similar trajectory to Luke Parker at the same point in their careers.

Leeds17 · 05/08/2017 at 12:53

Tom Lynch (GC) averaged 2,25 2013, 1.95 2014, 2.55 2015, 2.82 2016 contested marks per game, this season he is only going at 1.39 the fact that he is still managing to average 85 points per game is kind of crazy.

    INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 13:10

    Regardless. He's banned

Pat · 05/08/2017 at 13:02

The one reason I never pick Buddy is because I know he'll probably cost me a final, the bastard. Happy that I left Lloyd on the bench for Witherdan.

Lads, put the C on Zerrett, or copy the oppo and go with Bont to rely on our PODs to win it for us?

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:16

    If he could kick straight he would be a much better SC player.

Lochie · 05/08/2017 at 13:09

VC Jelwood failed last night, potentially crucial decision for my cash league. Fyfe, Dusty, Doch, Gawn, Bont, Adams all in my C considerations. Who to choose?

The_Bird · 05/08/2017 at 13:10

Had the VC on Parker (138) which I will take…….although I had the C on oliver who could go big again today

    Qwert · 05/08/2017 at 13:27

    Have to take the 138 and just hope Oliver goes big for a win win situation.

jase · 05/08/2017 at 13:21

H Shaw hope like hell he finds something or move him out asap as Buddy has me behind the 8 ball already?

    Qwert · 05/08/2017 at 13:27

    Hoping so also…we have put up with his horrible season surely he can give something back.

Osei · 05/08/2017 at 13:22

Fyfe Neale or Titch for the C? Rocking with zorko on the VC

bUCKET__ · 05/08/2017 at 13:26


    Shane · 05/08/2017 at 13:43

    Up against another beast in Mumford tho… he won't get it handed on a silver platter

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:17

    Well, that worked out well.

Qwert · 05/08/2017 at 13:26

Nank to Mcrae or Ryder?? Have Gawn and Martin in ruck already.

Rick Grimes · 05/08/2017 at 13:29

I got Gawn in. Expect his leg to fall off. Sorry

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:00

    He's killing it mate!..wish I'd vc'd him

      The Ranger · 05/08/2017 at 16:13

      I flipped a coin between Ablett and Gawn.
      Got Ablett.

        Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:26

        Oh bummer mate, Gaz could still go huge though…maybe even…(edited)

hedski · 05/08/2017 at 13:36

Had the vc on Jelwood (ba-bahm), I have got a bit of a lead on my two cashy opponents now as they fielded Lancelot and Lloyd while I benched them.
Have the C on Titch and will probably leave it there unless they catch up by tomorrow arvo (one of them doesn't have him).
If I get REALLY desperate by then might do the unthinkable and whack it on Sloanedog who neither has and pray, hoping it doesn't come to that.

Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 13:54

Fyfe or Dusty C? Witts and Shaw to Gray and Ryder or Beams and Martin?

Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 14:07

Fyfe or Dusty C and Witts to Ryder +Shaw to Gray next week or Witts to Martin + Shaw to Oliver next week?

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 14:14

Screwed up my VC and now I can't loophole. Rip me

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 15:32

Mumford see ya later sniper. Enjoy the holiday. I hope Gawn is okay

    hedski · 05/08/2017 at 15:37

    I really didn't need him to do that, looks like he tried to pull up, won't help I dont think.
    For Christ's sake Mummy.

      Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:17

      I don't reckon there's much in it Hedski, like you said, he pulled out of a worse hit, and it was his shoulder that contacted him I think.

      Looked initially like he was going him with his elbow.

      Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:47

      Also…Gawny was fine and played out the game, maybe a bit of acting there?

        hedski · 05/08/2017 at 17:14

        Here's hoping, I only seen the replay just after it happened.

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:18

    He'll be alright mate, relax.

    Hardly the sniper, more like the big man that knows how to use his body. Any club would love him.

Dane · 05/08/2017 at 16:08

Is merrett in trouble?

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:16

    Just watched it and yep I think so…he threw an intentional closed fist to the guts, not tolerated anymore.

    Dan · 05/08/2017 at 16:19

    I reckon he is too. What was he thinking??

      Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 16:21

      He was angry because he got knocked in the head by him deliberately a few minutes earlier and was pretty sore.

        Dan · 05/08/2017 at 16:36

        Ah, okay. That makes sense, thanks.

    hedski · 05/08/2017 at 17:15

    God I don't need two rubbed out next week, Mummy, Zerrett….who's next?

GloryDays90 · 05/08/2017 at 16:18

Big Max is back! Even though i dont think i will win my leagues this week after Spuddy and Jelwood s##t the bed its great to see the big guy back!

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:29

    You're not wrong there!…160 thank you very much a losing effort too

      GloryDays90 · 05/08/2017 at 16:38

      Sadly i will probably lose my finals this week though πŸ™ taking a 0 for Kennedy with no way to swing Maynard hurts….

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 16:31

My opponent doesn't own Docherty what a funny joke. Looks like Cripps out has impacted his scoring

Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:33

Docherty's having a shocherty!…not even close to tonning up.

Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:42

Tippingwutti-Tutti-Fruity!…what a great finish, exciting game to watch.

    Daniel Z · 06/08/2017 at 02:19

    If Levi Casboult is the answer, you're asking the wrong question.

Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:43

Ouch!…who'd you Captain this week GD90?

Rick Grimes · 05/08/2017 at 16:47

Do I take Kruizers 129 or gamble on Dusty or Mitch?

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 16:48

    Take it, I have a feeling Dusty will have a quiet game.

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:58

    Tmitch has only gone 130 or above 4 times this year, I'd take Kreuze.

INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 16:50

Own up. Who got Docherty in this week & stuffed him up

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 17:06

    First time I put the VC in the Doc this season. That's probably muZZed him. Just blame me. hehe Traded in Gawn this week mind you. That's soothed the pain a bit after mega turds from Jake Lloyd and Buddy Franklin last night.

      INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 17:17

      First time Vc for me too Doch. Maybe we're responsible

        Winter · 05/08/2017 at 17:56

        Yep same same

          B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:20

          I VC'd him too

            Westy · 06/08/2017 at 06:29

            I put the C on him!

    The Ranger · 05/08/2017 at 22:19


Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 16:54

Started a bit slow, is he copping a tag this week?

George · 05/08/2017 at 17:10

Hey guys I looped Shaw and Ryan. Take shaws 81 or roll dice on Ryan? Thanks!

Shake n bake · 05/08/2017 at 17:10

I was so so close of cutting shaw to Doch lucky l didnt have 4 trades left going to need them next week Merrett to Danger & l have Mummy lets see!!!

Jim_bob321 · 05/08/2017 at 17:12

Fyfe C anyone?

    Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 17:23


Pman · 05/08/2017 at 17:16

I crashed and burned last night with the VC on Jelwood and tossing up between the rejuvenated Fyfe or Dustry whi I just traded in for JPK. Am a little worried that Dusty may cop alot of attention and while he may score a 100 it may not be a big one. Who does the Community think is the better option for Captain out of Fyfe and Dusty and why? Thanks…

Cats Fan · 05/08/2017 at 17:35

Dusty will get the Howe tag, for sure

Winter · 05/08/2017 at 17:56

Shaw's 79 or go with Ryan?

    INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 18:05

    Depends on your situation. If your behind then role the dice

    GloryDays90 · 05/08/2017 at 18:05


Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 18:04

Trading in Ryder for Witts, sorry in advance

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/08/2017 at 18:11

Trade in Ryder or JJK?
Trading Shaz so need to.make a call b4 woods game tonight.

    Liam · 05/08/2017 at 18:28


      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/08/2017 at 18:33

      Means I have to play greenwood on field this week if trade in Ryder. Spose should back the kid.

      He would be E if traded in JJK.
      Does this change your decision.

        Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 19:20

        Ryder all the way Trigga

HB Baggers · 05/08/2017 at 18:12

Help me community – thinking of trading out Sloane for Fyfe?

Ben · 05/08/2017 at 18:16

Holding on to Rockliff finally working out

GloryDays90 · 05/08/2017 at 18:26

Why cant Zorko and Bont kick straight! They would be killing it if they could!

Finnius123 · 05/08/2017 at 18:42

Bont fwd eligibility next year?

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:21

    He has to get fwd/mid next year. Plays half the game up there, CD wont be fond of the idea though.

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 19:10

I have Macrae vice captain since I had no other options. What a pleasant surprise.

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 19:22

    Great pick!!

    Crow · 05/08/2017 at 20:16

    Great choice Madness. Must be looking at a big score with that handy pick.

Jim_bob321 · 05/08/2017 at 19:20

Fyfe or Adams C?
Opponent has Fyfe C

    Finnius123 · 05/08/2017 at 19:27

    can you beat him with fyfe as captain?

      Jim_bob321 · 05/08/2017 at 19:28

      Too late… maybe should've gone Adams C but went with Fyfe
      Yes I can

TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 19:30

Forgotten about "Buddy the Spud" Franklin and "Jake Heammoroid" Lloyd after some serious heroics this afternoon.

Max Gawn (162 SC), Jack Macrae (161 SC), and Marcus Bontempelli (127 SC) have been introduced to my club of bloody heroes!! You little pearlers you are!

With two scores north of 160 SC it would have been nice to snag one of them as the VC this week, but who gives a toss.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/08/2017 at 10:15

    I was proud of trading Dangerfield and Parsons (57) out this week for Gawn (162) and Kelly (127). This could be the decision of a lifetime!

Jambak · 05/08/2017 at 20:00

Titch or dusty for the C?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 20:15

    Great question Jambak. Got the same problem. Will decide tomorrow when the "Dust" settles.

    Dean Billman · 05/08/2017 at 21:09

    I'm in the same boat. Just bought Martin in this week. Can anyone tell me how he is going getting tagged this year?

Fisher Dan · 05/08/2017 at 20:19

Whacked the VC from The Bont over to Majestic Macrae 10 minutes before the bounce after seeing his avg of 110 v the lions.
Stroke of luck or genius?
Sorry I also just thought I might gloat πŸ˜‰

INPieman · 05/08/2017 at 20:33

Brodie Clumsy. Holidays. If danger gets a week that definitely gets 2+

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 20:52

    Holidays….happy holidays!

Corey · 05/08/2017 at 20:47

M.Crouch or Ryder as Skipper

    GloryDays90 · 05/08/2017 at 20:54


    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 20:56

    Tough call mate. Not sure about those two. But if you had to chose a skipper from those two, go Matt Crouch.

      Corey · 05/08/2017 at 21:12

      Yeah, I had Selwood as VC I should've gone with Bont as captain but I was umpiring a TAC Cup game today so I couldn't make that change

GGame · 05/08/2017 at 21:01

Next week looks bleak for some….Jelwood maybe out, Grundy MRP, Zerret MRP, JPK may not be back, Mumford MRP

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 21:13

    Yeah, why do we do this to ourselves?…lol, stupid cunnova game…Supercoach.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 21:15

    That is a shame mate. Sorry you have so many problems.

    Do you have Adam Treloar? He is doing OK.

    The Bird · 06/08/2017 at 00:31

    Danger in for ZErret…this week I traded JPK for Neale…happy with how that worked out as I was a bit sad after reversing wits to Gawn as my last trade.

Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 21:14

It was way worse than Danger's I reckon, his head just went..Whack!

    The Ranger · 05/08/2017 at 22:16

    Do you mean the outcome was worse or the intention was worse?

      Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 22:19

      The outcome, the impact…the stretcher.
      Pinning both arms on a guy is never a good look though, he'll cop his dues for that.

        The Ranger · 05/08/2017 at 22:21

        They're all trained to pin the arms…if that's gonna lead to suspensions then the whole way we're coached to tackle has to change

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2017 at 21:22

Do we just field Ryan and Scharenberg over Rance, Lloyd and any other underperforming premos next week because damn they are playing good footy and scoring well.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/08/2017 at 10:12

    Sharenberg isn't consistent enough to be a keeper. Lloyd is on and off too but at least he has a better average

Doc · 05/08/2017 at 21:46

Jack STEVEN and JJK v Roughy and Ryder.

Who wins?

    Hubba · 05/08/2017 at 23:37

    R & R

JohndJames · 05/08/2017 at 21:57

Really stuffed up my backline this round with Newman and Scharenberg on the bench and three players,no need to name them,on the park getting lower scores than them.

Ben · 05/08/2017 at 22:09

Didn't learn my lesson from last week.. Ryan on the bench with E but no way to get his score. Putting him on field instead of Lloyd next week

    Rocksta · 05/08/2017 at 22:19

    Ryan has saved my bacon.
    Reminds me of Docherty the way he plays. How he didn't play AFL before the age of 21 is beyond me.

    Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:33

    Unlucky Ben, i feel your pain, am in the same boat. Can only hope you dont lose this week by less than 50 pts!

TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2017 at 22:12

Luke Ryan on the bench last week. Not this week.

    Finnius123 · 05/08/2017 at 23:28

    Was considering putting him onfield for Lloyd – not gutsy enough to do it

Shake n bake · 05/08/2017 at 22:17

Bringing in fyfe for danger worked for the week!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 09:58

    Pushed Adams into Mids so put Ryan onto field into Def.
    He was my cover for Danger.
    Worked out well. Not a bad choice πŸ™‚

Rocksta · 05/08/2017 at 22:22

I'm up by 130 in my Qualifying Final and have had 1 more player than my opponent play. Surely I take Bont's 127 VC score yea? I can't cover my opponents C choice as she has Dusty and I dont. That means I'd be backing in that Titch scores more than 127.
Take Bont's score yea?

    Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:38

    Big call, either way when your already ahead comfortably may as well play it safe and take bont's score

    ahmad rubas · 05/08/2017 at 22:50

    take bonts score

Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 22:28

You know when you look at your opponent's team on the gameday page?…is that fully up to date?

I'm playing Robbo in one of my leagues and it shows that he played Strndica onfield with Gawn on the bench with no E on him…lol…….. and Gazza as Captain .

    ahmad rubas · 05/08/2017 at 22:49

    i reckon he just stuffed up big time ahaha

    JohndJames · 05/08/2017 at 23:25

    I'm up against The Phantom in one of the leagues I'm in,Robbo didn't make the finals,think he gave up a few weeks ago,beat Phantom a few weeks back in R17 by 58pts,looks like he's going to repay the favor.

    JohndJames · 05/08/2017 at 23:38

    Looked at Robbo's team,if he was going to stuff up he still had the option to have the C on,Bont,Fyfe,Dusty or Mitch after the Carlton game where he had the VC on Doc.

    Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:48

    Not putting the E on gawn has sent robbo packing from one of my leagues. Predicted to lose to a bloke with a 'no hope' team by about 100pts. Nice work robbo #robbosgotnoidea

The Ranger · 05/08/2017 at 22:31

I spent a good few hours thinking about whether to put the C on Gawn. Ablett or Fyfe.
It ended up on Ablett.
Kinda sums up my season that…

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 22:34

    That's gotta be painful Ranger..I'm already looking to next year, not confident I'm gonna win any finals at the moment, it's been a hell of a year!

    ahmad rubas · 05/08/2017 at 22:49

    i was going to captain fyfe but decided to take kelly vc score should of gone with fyfe or even vc gawn

Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:33

What the hell I had Touhy and Lloyd as Emergencies Lloyd got 59 and Touhy 107 and I Mitch Hibberd didn't play and I got Lloyd's score???

    Doc · 05/08/2017 at 22:35

    Correct. Lowest playing emergency score.

    Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:36

    What a way to end my season if I lose this Elimination Final by under 50pts

    Russty_ · 05/08/2017 at 22:36

    You always get the lowest score if you choose to have 2 E's on one line mate, it's in the rules.

      Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:41

      Oh ok then, I didn't know that…….oh well thanks anyway I won't do that again haha

    ahmad rubas · 05/08/2017 at 22:47

    who is starting in your defence if you can afford touhy and lloyd and emergencies

Corey · 05/08/2017 at 22:50

Laird, Hurley, Doc, Witherden and Mitch Hibberd only so I could have to bites at the cherry with Lloyd and Tuohy but I didn't know the rule about lowest scoring Emergencie. I'm swinging Adams to the backline next week to trade out Lloyd for tom mitchell

    ahmad rubas · 05/08/2017 at 22:53

    sounds like a great trade lloyd is suffering with mcveigh back in and titch is as consistent as they get

Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 23:05

Heard Witherden got a hamstring injury. Was it serious?

    Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:26

    Probs miss a couple mate, good chance leppa puts him in cotton wool for the rest of the season

      Pman · 06/08/2017 at 02:55

      Hate to break it to you mate but Leppa is no longer a the Lions…Chris Fagan is coach/

        Corey · 06/08/2017 at 16:47


ST74 · 05/08/2017 at 23:30

Had the VC on Fyfe and pretty happy. Should I take it or stick with Dusty as Captain like my opponents have. Thinking it is better to bank the points based on the fact that Martin scored not much more last week.

    Pman · 05/08/2017 at 23:41

    Don't be greedy mate, lock in the 140 as VC!

    B T · 05/08/2017 at 23:46

    Gotta take 140

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:18

    take fyfe score

Jamie · 05/08/2017 at 23:47

It's down to 49 + Greenwood for me vs sloane for the opponent. Do I take fyfe score as vc or match the opponents captain??

    Joshua · 05/08/2017 at 23:57

    Take Fyfes score

      Jamie · 06/08/2017 at 01:56

      D Martin has the captain for my opponent. He could go 170

        ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:21

        he is facing the howe tag most likely and 140 is a great vc score that you should defintely take especially in a week without dangerfield as a c option at the same time he has gone 150+ 4 times this season me personally though i would take fyfe score

Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:23

Interesting week, could be some big scores. Predicted to get over 2500, which is a nice change. Im sure the usual sunday carnage will change that. Only regretting starting lloyd over ryan/shaz. Hows everyone else tracking??

    Bells E Bubb · 06/08/2017 at 01:07

    2740 for me GFY.

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:22

    projected for 2283 which im happy with considering i have jpk danger and greene on the bench

He Man · 06/08/2017 at 00:28

Take Rockliff's 99 or play Sloane?

    Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:35

    Depends if your predicted to win or not! If you are, i would play it safe and take rocky. If not roll the dice He Man

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:23

    sloane got drop 30 or 170 id take the risk and hope sloane can get one of those massive tons he is capable of

      ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:23

      can drop*

    Top Gun · 06/08/2017 at 11:48

    The real He Man would never ask that question. πŸ˜›

Paul · 06/08/2017 at 00:38

Do I trade Nank to Ryder? Roberton, Rance and Nank plus 229 points v Mitchell, Martin (c) and Jacobs…

    Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 01:31

    If you have 3 or more trades, I would

Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 00:49

If you have the trades mate, pull the trigger. Nank the stank will continue his rot tomorrow

Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 00:59

Not that I'm complaining as I have him and he's most likely secured the victory for me this week, but how did Luke Ryan only score 116?
He had 28 disposals, 21 of which were kicks and went at 85% Efficiency. He also took 16 marks, 9 of which were intercept marks.
That's got 140 plus written all over it, surely?

Bells · 06/08/2017 at 01:04

Went for glory and and old style Ablett 180 with the C. Got half of that.
There's too many dicks on the dancefloor:
Greene, Buddy, Lloyd, Ablett, Danger, Heeney, Wallis, Papley

Been a crap season, not enough cash, too many compromises.
andim out

Steeeve · 06/08/2017 at 01:06

Being the idiot I am, I VCd Gawn but had no way to loophole his score. Relying on Dusty. Go son!

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 08:03

    So frustrating that…hope Dusty gets the job done for you.

Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 01:35

Wondering if it would be smart to bench Ebert and take Jelwoods score. Sloane has to be tagged and I think Ebert will get the job. Not familiar with the port list so does anyone else know if they have used any other players to tag?

    Cheekyk · 06/08/2017 at 01:58

    You could be on to something, but i personally think ebert will have a good game, has had a career best season and was a little down last week so hopefully he responds

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 08:02

    I would play Ebert imo

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:25

    selwood score to low to take

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 09:30

    I think Boak tagged Sloane last time.

    Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 09:44

    Play Ebert, no doubt about it

    Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 10:57

    Thanks for the advice community I will field him and see how it goes

    Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 18:57

    Ebert has to be one of my worst trades this year. Delivered nothing but crap since I got him.

The Jeddagirl · 06/08/2017 at 03:55

Newish SC player community.
Have Fyfe as VC and Dusty as C. Will wait until just before the start of the Tiger-Hawks game in case Bolton is a late in. If he isn't I will loophole Greenwood, Adelaide with Bolton to get Fyfe's VC's score as C.
Is this the right way to go about it community?

    B rian · 06/08/2017 at 06:04

    yes. good plan

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 08:01

    Spot on

    The Jeddagirl · 06/08/2017 at 08:08

    Thank you.

Kevdup · 06/08/2017 at 07:28

Had Neale VC, 156 πŸ™‚ in a dilemma, do i bank a parsons 51 as emergency and sub greenwood to eddy for loophole. My only choice to get Neales score! Or try with titch ir martin!

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 07:54

    Take Neale…even with the 51 it's 374 points for 3 players. Even if Titch/Martin get 130, Greenwood would need 117 to match Neale and Parsons. Goodluck

Miles · 06/08/2017 at 07:36

Is it worth trading out Greenwood and bringing in Kennedy when my opponent has them both in a tight game.

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 08:00

    If it's close I think Kennedy will score more than Greenwood but it's a tough call. Really need to decide if you want to even out Kennedy or not.

    Kevdup · 06/08/2017 at 08:04

    I think Greenwood will out score Kennedy today. New contract in the middle vs playing in Melbourne and gonna get pumped.. Just my personal opinion, good luck.

Alby · 06/08/2017 at 07:38

Ryder or Martin for captain the team I'm playing has Martin.

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 07:55

    Depends on the situation…if you're ahead possibly nullify the scores with martin but if you need to make up points, gamble Ryder.

Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 07:59

Currently up in a tight one. Opponent and I have Greenwood on field. He has Yeo and Ryder to come. I could trade Nank (on my bench) to Yeo or Ryder and then put them on field and Greenwood to bench?? Thoughts. If trade, Yeo or Ryder?

    Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 11:39

    Depending on how tight it is, yes I'd trade Nank to either Yeo or Ryder to cover one off. Odds are both of them will outscore Nank given Soldo is playing.

Doc · 06/08/2017 at 08:25

I'm, up by 3 in a tight qualifying final.

If I take Bont's 127 as vc, its JJK + Steven + 3 v Roughy + Ryder

Am I going to scrape in, or should I roll the dice with MARTIN (or Titch) as c to outscore Bonts 127?

    Qwert · 06/08/2017 at 08:38

    Normally you'd take 120+…so tight though. Go with the gut!!

Speedball · 06/08/2017 at 08:42

Probably a dumb, wishful question by a first year SCer who is still trying to understand the 'tricks'. I have Fyfe as VC and want his score as Captain. Can I swap Dangerfield from my bench and make him C with Tom Mitchell and make Mitchell emergency? Already have Glass on my mid bench as emergency.

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 08:50

    your c has to be a non playing player to get the vc score and then have an playing emergency to cover the non playing player on field. only problem is dangerfield has already played this week so he is locked in and you cant move him on field. if glass isnt playing today put him on field with C and put titch on the bench with the E

DEE · 06/08/2017 at 09:22

So i had the VC on zorko so need a capt today.
If only i had had it on bont, neale, kelly, gawn – just picked the wrong guy.

Choices today are Sloane, Ryder, Rance or Nank.
Thinking Ryder?

Help me, thanks.

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 09:32

    go big or go home with sloane

    Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 09:43

    Ryder best option there I reckon

jordanandeddie · 06/08/2017 at 09:22

Help! Take Bonts 127 as C or risk Mitch/Crouch? Neck and neck Elim final. Thanks!

    jordanandeddie · 06/08/2017 at 09:23

    Brad (Matt) Crouch that is

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 09:32

    take bont

    INPieman · 06/08/2017 at 09:37

    Take that in dangerless week

    Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 09:42

    Lock it in

    Tyruddanaut · 06/08/2017 at 10:09


TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 09:27

Fyfe roared back to life lately
Good boy

Eddy you can wear the capt hat again this week.

Pete · 06/08/2017 at 10:08

Play nank or greenwood?
Titch or dusty captain
Can't decide, close game, season on the line.

    jordanandeddie · 06/08/2017 at 10:11

    Nank for mine (tiges supporter – can see him playing more ruck with caddy up fwd). Dusty Capt!

Tyruddanaut · 06/08/2017 at 10:09

Yay…. My favourite part of This week is that I had Ryan (112) and Sharenberg (99) on the bench and Lloyd (59) and Doherty (75) on field. Doesn't it make you just want to laugh and smile aNd APpRECIATE EVERYTHING MSYFHOIFHBSOFSNKI

CoachDamo · 06/08/2017 at 10:11

Had the C on Fyfe right up until the last minute, then decided to change to Tom Mitchell!

But can't be too upset – traded JPK to Gawn so that worked out well.

CoachDamo · 06/08/2017 at 10:19

Any information on Witherden's injury?

I have 270K and the plan today was to upgrade Greenwood to Dusty. However if Witherden is going to miss a few weeks I'd rather hold Greenwood as cover and upgrade Witherden next week.

DacZawson · 06/08/2017 at 10:57

Mitchell, Rance, Greenwood and Ebert vs Sloane + 380
I'm the left hand side.
We both have the captaincy on Dusty so should I roll the dice and chuck the C on Mitchell and hope he outscores Dusty in order to give me a better chance at the win?

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 11:00

    if he doesnt have titch chuck it on him

    Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 11:34

    I think you need to try something. Your opponent definitely has the advantage.

Shake n bake · 06/08/2017 at 11:14

Take Lynch 77 or go with Greenwood????

    Max · 06/08/2017 at 11:22

    Greenwood….new contract and ready to impress

    Ahmad Rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:20

    If greenwood has an off day you are losing 10 -20 points if greenwood tons up 30 points you could be gaining

Max · 06/08/2017 at 11:21

If you had to bet your house….who gets more points today Dusty or Ryder… opponent has looped Fyfe so I need to make up points….thanks for the help in advance

    Hawks · 06/08/2017 at 12:08

    Ryder for mine.

    Dusty will be tagged hard today by the Hawks.

      Redgumwon · 06/08/2017 at 12:13

      Dusty in the wet. Kissing Langford doesn't have the tools to shut Dusty down

        Max · 06/08/2017 at 12:22

        Thanks guys. Such a tough decision (arghhh)…..I am slightly leaning towards Ryder because of all of the discussion about the hard tag by maybe Howe…..

    Derek · 06/08/2017 at 12:59

    Hawks will tag Dusty.

      Redgumwon · 06/08/2017 at 13:06

      But will the tagger be good enough to keep dusty under control? Me thinks not

        Derek · 06/08/2017 at 14:05

        They will try Howe, Shiel and Langford. If that doesn't work then Bourgoyne will go to him

          Redgumwon · 06/08/2017 at 14:22

          I don't think any of them have the strength or power to go with Dusty. Nor will they be able to control Dusty when he goes the hard ball inside

    Ahmad Rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:20

    Go dusty over Ryder

Top Gun · 06/08/2017 at 11:33

VC on Neale! Happy with that as have plenty of stinkers Buddy Doc et al

Top Gun · 06/08/2017 at 11:50

Be interesting to see how players perform today in the wet weather

    Redgumwon · 06/08/2017 at 12:40

    I expect both Mitchell & Dusty to score big in the wet. Only problem I have is picking witch one to play as captain. I think Mitchell can bounce back from his score of last week. Dusty can go big again as I don't think the hawks will have the right match up for him in the wet

Stretch · 06/08/2017 at 12:09

Greenwood or Kennedy on the field

    Max · 06/08/2017 at 12:48

    Kennedy….he may go large

    Ahmad Rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:19

    Greenwood because Kennedy has kicked 12 goals past 2 weeks and has failed to ton up

TheGreatBozza · 06/08/2017 at 12:50

Foolishly put the VC on Selwood.
Do I go Dusty or Mitchell captain? Also take Lynch's 77 or risk Nank or Greenwood

    Redgumwon · 06/08/2017 at 12:56

    Got the same problem with Mitchell & Dusty. I expect Mitchell to bounce back from last weeks score and go big today in the wet. I don't think Hawthorn will have a match up for Dusty in the wet today. Dusty will be to strong inside today and get plenty of it. Slightly leaning towards Mitchell as Captain

    Ahmad Rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:19

    Go with greenwood when he is on the field scores very well

Finnius123 · 06/08/2017 at 13:32

Yeo playing a sweeper in defense. Could mean a higher score this week.

    ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:44

    hasnt that been his role all year?

      Finnius123 · 06/08/2017 at 13:48

      Started there, but has been rolling through the midfield and the forward line for the last 5 or 6 weeks. Now has gone back.

        ahmad rubas · 06/08/2017 at 13:54

        oh fair enough that explains his drop off in scores in the past month

neil Demons Delight · 06/08/2017 at 14:17

wish I had the trades to trade danger and jpk to Kelly and bont Shows you the value of trades Finishing high with no trades is worse than 8th with trades next year different must conserve trades

    I'm with you there Neil,I made seven of my eight league finals,four double chance,three elimination,losing two top four games,two in the balance,winning two elimination,losing one.So I could be in six finals next week and it didn't matter that I came 1st or 5th.Could have hung on to a few more trades,maybe not have quite as good a team,but have the trades there to use if needed.

      Shake n bake · 06/08/2017 at 16:36

      As you know went Danger to fyfe and still have 4 trades left with $480k in the kitty. Merrett back to Danger next week and we'll see what happens to Mummy!

    not doing that badly

Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 14:36

So on a different topic, just looking at the selection percentages for the Draftstars 50k Sunday contest which is underway, strangely there is 3 games today but 15 of the top 20 most selected players come from the eaglesvsaints game including 9/10 of the most selected. Strange huh! Assuming it's the Etihad and fairly even sides factor but still don't recall a weighting that heavy towards a single game in the past…..might play towards those who have looked outside the box…..

Steeeve · 06/08/2017 at 15:04

Currently on Dusty but worried about the tag.

Because of an alteration to my work circumstances, I have had to cancel my Herald Sun 7 day subscription which means I have lost Supercoach gold. SC gold has a number of advantages, however I am surprised/disappointed that I now no longer get ongoing SC points. Is this what normally happens and if so is there another way I can get an update on how my players are going?

Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 16:26

Just watching tigers v hawks. My opponent has dusty as capt but I opted to use Gawn score. He has Cotchin. How many points do you get for a free kick? Has anyone noticed whether one of the umps is a little fat bloke in his mid fifties, it could be my opponent looking after Cotch. My god he gets a nice ride, they have Pendles in the commentary box and I think he's even embarrassed

    Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 16:35

    The umpires love Cotchin, it's the only possible explanation for his Brownlow.

      Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 17:38

      Little handful of blokes in the comp who enjoy this but he is clearly the leader of the pack. It's a real game killer for the independent fan trying to watch the game I can cop umpiring mistakes but that's not what goes on with cotchin

      Dawnie · 06/08/2017 at 19:31

      Hold on. Cotchin didn't win it, he was given it and he should have got a week for that punch a few weeks ago. A good, but not great player.

Bloody rubbish, Ryder plus 34 points v Jacobs and going to lose.,.

Joshua · 06/08/2017 at 18:50

Haven't been watching, Is Gray playing MID? Probably gonna trade Jelwood out for him if so

Iamme · 06/08/2017 at 18:54

103 last quarter points between Sloane , Laird and Ryder will get me to 2500 for the first time this season.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 18:54

Hail mary mate
Think you may be 19 shy but best of luck

GloryDays90 · 06/08/2017 at 19:06

Going to lose both finals πŸ™ not looking good for second chance either with Selwood now out… think my year is over…

On the plus side CARN THE CROWS!!!

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:27

    Yep that was a demolition. Love it they won, but I wanted to watch a tough game of footy. Pathetic.

SC16 · 06/08/2017 at 19:19

If ryder scores more than 91 i lose, watching the game and his score is going up for no reason what is going on?! he went from 83 to 88 for no reason then as the goal was kicked he went to 89!!!

    Thomas · 06/08/2017 at 19:40

    fell back to 86, think you're in luck

      SC16 · 06/08/2017 at 23:09

      jeez i got lucky! but with jelwood out and 0 trades i think im screwed!

    hedski · 06/08/2017 at 20:14

    Scaling SC16, it sucks trust me.

      SC16 · 06/08/2017 at 23:09

      I trust you πŸ™ i was watching the game live with fanfooty up waiting for that 89 to turn into a 91 scariest 2 minutes of my life

Jim_bob321 · 06/08/2017 at 19:24

Bloody retarded Supercoach
Lose by 2 points because they didnt give Ebert his points for a tackle and efficient handball…….

Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 19:25

Urgent…………….Who wins in SC finals if it's a draw?

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 19:27

    The team that has finished the highest in the home and away season. If you finished second and your opponent finished third, YOU WIN!

      Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 19:32

      You fkn ripper. I finished 2nd, my opponent finished third

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 19:34

        Wait on scaling results before popping the champagne bottle mate!!

          Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 19:42

          I won by 1 point after scaling in any event. Heart in my mouth for the whole of the second half in the showdown!

            TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 20:16

            Bewdiful mate! You had nothing to worry about in any case! You won on your terms which is even better. Rip open that bottle of champers and enjoy! Great stuff

              Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 20:37

              Cheers TopHawk. Still a long way to go…………but the week off is great from a suspension, injury and trade saving perspective.

    Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 19:31

    Who was ranked higher going in to finals

TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 19:32

I think I won 3 out of my 4 finals this week. And the one I look like losing is in Trig's Happy Place league. Wait for it, by two friggin points!!! It all comes down to scaling in that one. If Ryder gets scaled up by 2 from 86 to 88 I am home there as well. But the way Port played today, I can't see that happening

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 19:44

    Correction. I lost by a point! Congrats INP arbitrage. 2396-2395. That was one hell of a final.
    Still bloody stoked having won the other 3 top tier league finals. Addicts Anonymous my biggest scalp ever!!!

      JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 20:02

      Well done TOPHAWK1,it's a great feeling when you win most of your finals.

      INPieman · 06/08/2017 at 20:07

      Sorry dude. It's a brutal business. Lost a cash league by 4 & won another by 5 & our game was a 1 pointer. So close this week. Such is the game. I respect your input Tophawk & obviously a good bloke despite my hate of hawthorn, I always respond to you when I can. Onwards & upwards my friend

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 21:42

        Do not ever apologise to Tophawk.

        That is the business were are in. Cut throat. But I love it.

        Beaten my a better opponent today.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 20:23

        Hi Trigg,

        What massive battles were fought in 2017. I just could not get it over the line today Trigger.

        Your league is one of the best. Great players and a stellar team ranking to boot!

        Rest assured, TOPHAWK will play till the end.


          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 22:57

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 20:47

    Hey Hawk…you knocked me over by about 50 points, well done mate, was that sneaky Bayok move you made lol.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 22:09

      Thanks Russty.

      Let's call that the "Bayok" move OK?

      But seriously, I am humbled.

      Playing the best SC coaches in the land from the wild west and having an impact means a lot.

      See you next year mate.

how did everyone else go?

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 19:56

    2459 with Danger and JPK on the bench, Fyfe captain. Happy days considering my outs this week and a paltry 2079 last week.

    Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 20:05

    I ended up with 2395 and won 3/4 top tier finals and got up in my other lower tier final. Beat Addicts Anonymous and Underdorkers/Russty who are both leviathans of SC if you don't mind.

      Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:24

      Wow. Poor opponent. Should probably message them and give them the beyond blue number?

TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 19:55

Bloody scaling. I told Rocksta to chill pre scaling as he thought he won after his "pre scaling" draw in one of his finals. I wonder if Rocksta ended up with the choccies after scaling………….

    Rocksta · 06/08/2017 at 19:57

    Won by 1 point after scaling.
    Fkn pumped

Northerner · 06/08/2017 at 19:56

So what's the view on a par score? 2400?

    Iamme · 06/08/2017 at 20:05

    My leagues had lots of 2400+ scores and also many 2250+, so I reckon somewhere between 2300 -2350 would be around par imo.

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/08/2017 at 20:06

    I reckon 2350 is par

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 20:06


    Stirlsy · 06/08/2017 at 20:24

    2300 to 2350 its spread out a bit this week.

JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 19:59

Ended up with my best score of the season,2409,beating my previous best of 2404 from round 17.Out of the seven finals I was in,won three,lost four,but three of those loses were in the qualifying finals,so come back next week.Overall,go straight into a preliminary final,have five semis next week,and was knocked out in one elimination final.Moved up 258 places in the rankings to 3626,so my ambition of ending in the top 5000 is looking good.

Jack · 06/08/2017 at 20:01

Won all leagues this week with 2471 with Danger on the bench, now just got to sort out Jelwood.

Pom · 06/08/2017 at 20:05

          Stirlsy · 06/08/2017 at 20:35

          Edit – Ok so I went a little crazy

    Stirlsy · 06/08/2017 at 20:20

          4 teams called the goonies…highest score is 2611, doesn't match with the info he gave though…cheap thrills for some I guess lol

            Pom · 06/08/2017 at 21:42

            It got rescaled to 2611. How does it just take 88 points off?
            And for some reason My team page has 3 forward bench players and only 2 in the mids?? Has anyone had that happen before?

              Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:45

              Thats all normal if youre dillusional πŸ˜‰

Missed most of the action today, having to work in the morning and then 9 holes of Golf in the arvo, well done to all the winners this week, I think I won 8 out of my ten leagues and was in top 4 in all of em, Tophawks smoked me pretty good lol, on a better note, I hit 5 out of 9 greens in regulation and shot a 43 at Busselton Golf Club. :)..oh yeah and the Saints won, so that's a bonus!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 21:06

    Hammer it home mate!

    I will play your league hard till its over.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:20

    Nice! Won 9/10 With my best score of the season.(2459)Danger+JPK on the bench. Lucky I was able to loop Lloyd and then play Ryan instead. Would have been a very different story otherwise, big scores around.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 22:40

      My midfield bench was Danger, JPK and Titch.
      How's that for an expensive bench? Lol
      Had the E on Titch as had the VC on Fyfe so Bayok was on field as Capt.
      300 from the rucks was nice.
      had Lloyd on ground as looped Newman.
      Couldn't use Shaz or Greenwood. But will come in handy this week for Jelwood and Witherden ( both on ground)
      Ryan simply brilliant no probs starting him on ground every week

        Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 22:43

        Ryan could be the Docherty of next year…I'll be starting him I reckon.

        Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 23:00

        My problem is I never see the freo games.

        Yeah I had Titch on there too, looped cousins for fyfes score.

        Also McGrath and Lloyd on defense bench.

        Nank and Stewart on forward bench, a fair bit of cash on the pine. The depth has saved me a few times this year though.

        Only have to play 4 matches next week, 6 semis already locked in. Need a bigger imaginary trophy cabinet .

Bdog · 06/08/2017 at 21:17

Scored 2590 and still lost opponent scored 2605 with game as C I feel robbed

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 21:22

    Wow!….that is highway robbery mate, very unlucky there, great score regardless.

    JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 22:02

    I feel your pain,to get a score like that and then lose in a close one would be heartbreaking.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:18

    That is rough, thats a cracker score that some may never achieve.

Bdog · 06/08/2017 at 21:17

Sorry ment Gawn

Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 21:22

Best midfielder to bring in for under $502,100 for Selwood. This is my last trade so I need to make it count.
Current midfield is Danger, Titch, Zerret, Hanners, Fyfe, Jelwood, Ebert, Treloar

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 21:26

    How about Beama?

      Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:35

      Like it reasonable games for brisbane in semi and grand. Sloane as a wildcard option.

        Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 22:38

        Yeah Beams and Sloane were the main ones I was looking at, also am considering Gray who looks to be spending time Mid. All three pose risks though

          Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 22:41

          I'd go Sloaney DM…2 massive scores out of his last 3. Boom or bust though.

            Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 23:12

            I am still a bit wary of Sloane since Sydney and West Coast should be able to tag him and keep his score low. Might take the punt, will think it over this week

              Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 23:32

              As Derek says consider Gray…….probably low ownership too?

          Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:55

          Sorry Beams has a great round this upcoming week GCS at the G. Rnd 21

          And also NM at the G for the SC GF. Rnd 23

          In other words, you need a player this week? Id probably go Beams.

          (Rnd 22 semi final is vs Melbourne at the MCG.)

            Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 23:11

            Got the week off in all my leagues this week, however have to make the trade as I might not be able to afford them next week with my measly amount of cash in the bank.

              Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 23:19

              Id be looking at certain players that have a favourable run in that case.

              Last trade I guess an injury prone Beams or Coniglio probably not the best idea.

              Only really leaves Sloane I guess? I havent checked player prices in a while.

    Derek · 06/08/2017 at 23:21

    RGray is a very good option

      Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 23:30

      Yep agree, just looked and semi vs Doggies at ES and then what could be a massive GF game vs GCS at Adelaide.

      They will be fighting hard for dignity after the game tonight.

        Defying_Madness · 07/08/2017 at 00:00

        Gray is really tempting me. Do we think he will stay in the midfield?

Tommo09 · 06/08/2017 at 21:29

Selwood out
Who to? I have 496k
Yeo Sloane Beams Hurley Treloar Gibbs are all options through DPP

    GloryDays90 · 06/08/2017 at 22:22

    Treloar since Pendles is out.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:52

    If you need a player this round Beams could go big vs GCS at The G. Also GF will be NM at the G.

    Sloane wild card.

Hi crew. Just looked at rankings. Sitting at 109, so just outside top 100, which is my target. If only there was a prize for highest team value! I'm just over $14.2m. There's only one team I found with higher value ($35k higher) in the top 500, who was ranked 368.

Collective support has helped me greatly. Thanks for all the insights.

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 21:43

    Nice job this year, huge effort, I thought I was doing ok at around 3300 but that's next level Northerner, make a few good Pod choices and you could get right up there mate, good luck.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 21:54

    Nice job on selections of all your players to get to that rank and value. Good luck in your remaing finals matches.

Joshua · 06/08/2017 at 21:33

Got the week off in all my leagues but will have to trade Jelwood to Neale before his price rises. 1 trade after that, will cover Witherden with Lloyd.
Danger and Greene back helps as well.

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 22:00

    Sounds like you could finish strong Josh, good job mate.

    Moosehead · 07/08/2017 at 11:53

    Don't do it because he night get hurt next week.

      Joshua · 07/08/2017 at 14:11

      Break even of 59 and can only just afford him, need to act this week

GloryDays90 · 06/08/2017 at 21:52

Does anyone else think there should be a couple more trades added in next year??

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 21:56

    I wouldnt mind some although I say it every year as players break down around finals, I probably just need to manage them better myself.

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 21:59

    Be nice to maybe have a couple more GD, but in hindsight, looking back, I made some mistakes this season as I guess we all have..probably 4 to 6 wasted trades.

    JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 21:59

    An extra five would be nice,thirty five has a nice ring to it.

    Iamme · 06/08/2017 at 22:24

    I'm happy with 30, we just need to use them better, back our team structures and maybe not rage trade so early haha!

    Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 22:29

    No we don't need rule changes, rule changes ruin the game. Where have I heard that? I think we used to have less some years back. We have a good balance now between being able to cover injuries but team build also. Too many sideways trades when people become impatient with a good player who has a few down weeks. How many dumped Fyfe but then got him back later?

      Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 22:30

      It used to be 24 Tibor about 6 or 7 years ago I think.

        King-Willy-Pepsi-Can · 06/08/2017 at 22:34

        Raise the salary cap to 11 mill and reduce the trades to 26

        Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:42

        Yeah AFL changed a lot though higher demand on players and therefore more injuries. Not sure if the game now warrants any extra. Now that I think about it more trades just means everyone gets a great team and matches are more of a coinflip than a strategic battle.

        Vote no more trades in 2018!

        Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 22:44

        Yeah that was the number I was thinking. makes thirty seem generous enough

      Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 22:36

      A bit harsh mate, trading out Fyfe to Kreuzer was a move which carried my season. Allowed me to field 18 in round 13 and now have brought Fyfe back in since he has hit form. Would make the exact same trades again.

        Tibor · 06/08/2017 at 22:47

        Fair enough call if you made it work for you but most would have just spat the dummy and put a line through him and there would have been a few other players similar

      JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 22:55

      I kept the faith in Fyfe. Injuries is what killed me this year,nine trades in total used up fixing them.

        Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 23:01

        Yeah that's a killer, bloody injuries…I wouldn't mind if they could upgrade certain players to DPP during the season, like that other inferior fantasy game does. πŸ™‚

          JohndJames · 06/08/2017 at 23:30

          Or just have more at the start,more mid/fwd would be nice,so we don't have to pick players like Buddy,as much as I like him,he's too up and down,mainly down this year.

            Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 23:36

            Nah then lack of variance πŸ˜‰

    Sanrafish · 07/08/2017 at 11:52

    DEFINATELY not. Trigger fingered SCers need to show more restraint and discipline and follow at least one of the SC rules by not trading sideways. 30 is ample if you are out of trades now hopefully you will learn from your mistakes and be better player next year. Every year towards the end of the season there is an increased number of injuries through wear and tear. It is not rocket science but luck plays a part too.
    I won my two games and have two trades left.
    Good luck.

2018 · 06/08/2017 at 22:23

Thoughts on Sicily next year as defender Hawks love giving him the ball and a good use and kick of it

    Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 22:27

    Yeah he's worth a look, be interesting to see if he can show some consistency early next season.

    Finnius123 · 06/08/2017 at 22:30

    Doesn't pass my no flogs test

      Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:40

      Valid point.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 22:32

    Burton for mine

    Defying_Madness · 06/08/2017 at 22:34

    Burton and Sicily will be on my radar

    Derek · 06/08/2017 at 23:18

    O'Brien is my pick of the young hawks

      Defying_Madness · 07/08/2017 at 00:02

      O'Brien looks good, maybe not next year but the year after. A lot to like about the way he plays. Will be monitoring a few Hawks in the pre season.

Swans2012 · 06/08/2017 at 22:44

2437 and Look I'm happy, don't get me wrong, 6/7 league wins including a couple cashies and trigs happy place, moved up couple of hundred spots to 1498. A good (not great but definitely good) season so far…. but I look at my midfield and rucks and how's this for a run of scores 128,156, 127,162, 140,109, 82, 116,131, 160 (c). Can't help but wonder what could have been if my fwd/def hadn't spudded……

Billioux · 06/08/2017 at 22:45

Always nice to hear good stories from this forum. I got thru to next week (or one after) in 8/9 leagues which is pleasing. League Ashighas honour i graciously bow out of. Hot league ranked 21st i think. i look forward to playing quite a few of you guys next week.. re J Selwood .. for mine.. Gws lad owned by 0.2% is my move.

    Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:48

    Coniglio I imagine. Absolute gun and was massive last year iirc.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2017 at 22:51

    Cogs looked good
    Makes a big difference to GWS.
    Boy they missed him

      Billioux · 06/08/2017 at 22:56

      Yep. He is a gun. Gets his own ball and can play roles and still score. I like him. Risky i know

        Whatyasmokin · 06/08/2017 at 22:58

        Someone locked in Deledio, that is far riskier………

Russty_ · 06/08/2017 at 23:32

Mark Robbo Robinson would've scored 2376 if he'd put the E on Gawn this week, instead he scored 2216 and probably lost 90 % of all the leagues he was in….what a doofus lol, why even bother?

    JohndJames · 07/08/2017 at 01:13

    The even bigger question apart from how the hell do you forget to put the E on the only bench player,is why was Maxy on the pine in the first place.

      Whatyasmokin · 07/08/2017 at 17:52

      Captain loophole?

        JohndJames · 08/08/2017 at 16:37

        That was my first thought but Robbo had the C on Ablett.

    Moosehead · 07/08/2017 at 11:43

    Similar to me except I won my four games and from a personal view I think Grundy and Zerrett will be better for the rest. I thought about Greenwood too but what a star. Some traded him out after a game when most Adelaide players scored poorly.

    Moosehead · 07/08/2017 at 12:00

    Yes, he just lost in our league too but Russty, ever make a SC boo-boo?
    Anyway, I doubt he even does his team because Kevin Sheedy never did his years ago and most 'celebrity' don't do their team.

Joshua · 07/08/2017 at 03:48

Gray or Neale?

    Northerner · 07/08/2017 at 05:10

    Neale for mine. Doesn't cop the tag. Gray cops tag and hears to forward pocket. If that happens he's too inconsistent.

BrownlowBoy · 07/08/2017 at 07:22

This week may have just sunk my season. Selwood definitely missing, with Grundy, Merrett, Witherden all up in the air at the moment. Was sitting pretty with 4 trades left and only concerns were Greenwood at F6 and Shaw at D6 looping with Witherden.

    Scarless · 07/08/2017 at 11:28

    Similar to me except I won my four games and from a personal view I think Grundy and Zerrett will be better for the rest. I thought about Greenwood too but what a star. Some traded him out after a game when most Adelaide players scored poorly.
    Good luck next week. SC is a strange game and your lesser players might rise to the occasion like mine did.

neil Demons Delight · 07/08/2017 at 09:01

Though I think Sydney will win it they have become the Hawthorn of supercoach relevance.I had 6 this year and none next year.. Hawthorn won flags with very few sc relevant players .Next year I see at least 3 Sicily Obrien and Tich .Brissy and my team the Dees present many new players Berry Withering neale bullen Lever added to Oliver Gawn Zorko these two clubs and the hawks will be prominent in my team.. goodbye franklin newman hanna jpk Lloyd heeney

    Freddie · 07/08/2017 at 15:00

    Very biased view and generally when one thinks with their heart and not their head ones SC team suffers.
    I will once again go with Kennedy and Heeney. Buddy is exciting and Newman will improve.
    Most of us have Tich and Gawn. Will/may get Oliver next year but at this stage no other Demon although Maynard looks interesting. There are many great players out there and agree with your view on Hawks players.

Moosehead · 07/08/2017 at 11:29

Big call about Sydney players??
