SCOTT LYCETT. The name on everyone’s lips. Kev wrote him up today and there is no doubt your R2 selection will make you and break you in season 2018.

Lekdog and Patch discuss Lycett and other West Coast selections alongside players from Richmond, St Kilda, Sydney and the Doggies.

They also have a gander at some of the JLT significant games from the week before.

They also announce the winner of the AFL team suit for our favourite POD that went up on Facebook!

How are your teams shaping up, community? What do you want to see next week now team reviews are through? Are you throwing yourself to the Dogs on Lycett?

As always, keep your eyes peeled on the site for more content going up every day – and let us know what you want to see!

Finnius · 06/03/2018 at 22:41

Hey boys – loving the work as always! It is getting better every week :)))

Patch · 06/03/2018 at 22:41

Apologies again for being late this week – Lek and I were both beset by a whole bunch of time constraints, technical difficulties and Other Life Things™.

Finnius · 06/03/2018 at 22:41

Who would we rather – Cripps and 105k or Crouch and 33k?

    Patch · 06/03/2018 at 23:14

    Depends on what the 105k becomes. If it's just loose change, I'd wager Crouch will score more and thus (Higgo taught me that word) should be picked.

    If the 100k turns a 350k defender into Heath Shaw, take Cripps.

    Russty_ · 07/03/2018 at 01:35

    Cripps has averaged over 100 once in his 4 years..all I remember about him having picked him probably 3 of those years is…disappointment.

      Tucker · 07/03/2018 at 12:48

      He started 2015 as a 200k rookie and averaged 96, amazing return
      The next year he was a solid premium mid at 107 with an insane 2nd half to the year
      Last year was the only disappointment with his injuries limiting him to 15 games and a 25 in his last game pulling his average down.
      You're selling him well short, he's a LOCK

    Captain Risky · 07/03/2018 at 07:01

    Cripps biggest selling point is the round 12 bye. Crouch, Danger, Dusty, Fyfe all round 14.

      dave G · 07/03/2018 at 07:28

      Does that make Cripps a rd13 trade target then?

Kyle · 07/03/2018 at 00:01

Does anyone else have doubts over dusty backing up his 119 average? Ik you are backing him lek but i am along the same thinking as patch. So many marking him in as a guaranteed top 8 mid but i am not sold. His one and only year averaging 110+ and i cant imagine richmond having another dream run like last year. Will his scores drop off this year? I think they may. So for me i will be leaving him out of the starting side and wait for byes to reasess

    Russty_ · 07/03/2018 at 01:31

    He always seems to drop off at some point in the season Kyle, I picked him up for sub 500k last year…I'm not starting with him, but definitely want to finish with him.

      Derek · 07/03/2018 at 09:39

      Everyone is always cheaper at some stage.

    Captain Risky · 07/03/2018 at 06:59

    8 scores over 130 last year. Started with 159 against Carlton…
    Like most he will be cheaper at some stage, but will you have the $, or will you have more pressing trade issues?

    DustyCut · 08/03/2018 at 23:36

    Might sound a bit one-eyed as a Richmond supporter, but I reckon he will. It's a different game in the pre-season, but once the real thing starts, watch the Tiger's midfielders look for him on the outside, or see Dusty go in 3 on 1 and sneak a handpass to a teammate (or go full Nelson Muntz, Wildcats style). He also played some amazing footy in the highest of pressure situations. He just plays footy, and like Danger, he looks a class above everyone out there. Watch him match or go better than 2017 this year.

    DunNuthin · 09/03/2018 at 12:19

    Yes Kyle for a number of statistical reasons and no 'I reckon' reasons.

Post_MaSloane · 07/03/2018 at 00:05

Armitage in the mids, Lycett and Forget… It's becoming Madman Moe's Pressure Cooker! (I like it!)

    Russty_ · 07/03/2018 at 01:32

    Armo in the mids isn't so madman, if he stays ambulatory, Lycett probably is though…he's just as injury prone as Nicnat and Vardy.

ZerrettForPM · 07/03/2018 at 03:59

Sicily or Armitage?

    Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 11:13

    Sicily is a keeper whereas Armitage is a stepping stone. It all depends on the structure of your team, however I would be leaning towards Sicily.

    Patch · 07/03/2018 at 17:57

    Sicily for mine.


CheekyNandos7 · 07/03/2018 at 08:20

Armitage or the Jaeger Bomb? Really what I'm asking is do you choose the guy with bung groins or the kid with knees that are shot to hell?

    Derek · 07/03/2018 at 09:43

    I’ve had JOM all preseason. After JLT2 I’m starting to think Armitage. Based on his numbers a couple of years ago. He has done it before, we are yet to see what JOM can do

    The Ranger · 07/03/2018 at 13:04

    I've had JOM all preseason but I'm starting to think I might go pure GnR in the mids

    Patch · 07/03/2018 at 17:59

    Did you not listen to my rant? NO. MID. PRICERS.

    Except Armitage. But also not Armitage.

Carl · 07/03/2018 at 12:23

So I know that Lek has a full scale man crush on Cripps, as do I for the record even as a saints man. But will he get the 110ave needed to make him a top 10mid? I can see him getting low 100’s just don’t know about 110.

    The Ranger · 07/03/2018 at 12:49

    I think he might need this year and another pre season under his belt before he hits full beast mode Carl so I'm holding off for now.
    Jeez he looks good tho…

Jason · 07/03/2018 at 12:31

I won't be having any Lyars in my team. Hehe get it?

Whats up Doc · 07/03/2018 at 12:43

Thoughts on the team anyone
DEF- Shaw, Langdon, Salem, Marchbank, Doedee, Finlayson
MID- Dusty, Oliver, Merret, Shuey, Aaron Hall, Blakely, LUD, Holman
RUCK- Simpson, Lycett
FWD- Menegola, Heeney, Greene, Billings, Lambert, Ahern

    ZerrettForPM · 07/03/2018 at 13:55

    Guessing your team name is RiskyBusiness

      Whats up Doc · 07/03/2018 at 14:15

      ahaha no although it would fit the team perfectly, but the team is once again, "Whats up Doc" do love myself a POD team

        gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:15

        Good luck with that side Doc.. Just remember there's no booby prizes in SC

Clueless · 07/03/2018 at 13:00

Shuey to be tagged and Menegola to not have as much mid time.

redgumwon · 07/03/2018 at 13:15

If any of you guys are interested I've got some places left in my classic league. The code is 128042

    IntelDesign · 07/03/2018 at 13:35

    Cash or casual?

      redgumwon · 07/03/2018 at 17:38


    Rick · 10/03/2018 at 10:41

    If you miss 419891. It's casual fun. No cash. Ave 2000 plus preferred or 1-2 years experience

Jimdawg · 07/03/2018 at 13:28

Not a fan of Lekdog sucking off the blues. Not giving the saints much credit although they were poor, will beat the blues during the year.
Armitage lock. Bont over Cripps too

    Steeeve · 07/03/2018 at 18:21

    … he's a blues supporter. I think his comments were tongue in cheek…

      Lekdog · 08/03/2018 at 08:06

      That’s the joke haha

IntelDesign · 07/03/2018 at 13:34

What's the go on cash leagues guys? This must be the quietest period I've come across yet. There's usually someone who advertises for players. Are people losing interest?

    Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 17:07

    I would be keen to enter as well, but cannot be bothered organising…

      IntelDesign · 08/03/2018 at 13:03

      Thanks for the response guys. At least some people are keen. Most leagues must have organized early doors. It's probably gonna be a mad scramble from here on in.

    SW Roosters XXX · 08/03/2018 at 09:54

    I am also keen for a cash league.. put a post up a few weeks ago on a thread, but didn't get much traction……..

    Heaps Dinkum · 08/03/2018 at 12:36

    I was in one last year from this site, would be keen again.

      Heath · 08/03/2018 at 13:50

      Also would be in. Can’t be arsed holding the cash though

StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 13:59

Nice Podcast lads. Plenty of relevance.

To Lycett or not? I have 2 teams, one with and one without.
It’s a big call & I can hear the fear in Lek & Patch today.

Shaw or Sicily into D4 if I take the punt, or roll back to Ryder & Naughton.

Here is the team with Lycett….

D: Yeo, Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Doedee, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brodie, T.Kelly (Garlett, Holman, Barry);
R: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron);
F: Heeney, Billing’s, Smith, Christensen, Rioli (WC), Fritsch, (Ryan, Ahern).

I’m certain many of you have better starting teams but 2 questions based on this set up…..

1. Ryder & Naughton or Lycett & Shaw?
2. Brodie at M7 or LDU?

Thanks Community!

    Carl · 07/03/2018 at 22:56

    Brodie > LDU for sure either way.

    I’m having a similar dilemma as well….to Lycett or not to Lycett that is the question!!

Ja191 · 07/03/2018 at 14:04

news in naninsmith ruptured his ACL at training hmmmmm

    StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 14:15

    Sad for Naismith but it makea Cameron very relevant!

      The Ranger · 07/03/2018 at 15:04

      Watch his ownership percentage go off…

    Captain Risky · 07/03/2018 at 14:15

    I guess we'll have to have a punt on Darcy Cameron on the bench. For old times sake just like last year..

Keenbutclueless · 07/03/2018 at 14:15

Darcy Cameron just became very relevant as an R3 with Naismith going down. Having some cover at R3 possibly strengthens the case for Lycett, as your hand is not forced into an immediate double trade if he goes down.

    INPieman · 07/03/2018 at 15:19

    Let's see if he's named round 1. In the last JLT game Towers was backing up

      DustyCut · 08/03/2018 at 23:16

      im going in without Lycett, at the moment Stef Martin and Maxy Gawn. Very easy to bring in Lycett if he impresses and Gawn goes down/Martin shares ruck

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 23:34

    Sinclair has an ankle injury too…anyone know how bad it is?

Laird Lad Donuts · 07/03/2018 at 14:24

Changed the team about 4976 times so far but I think this will be the team closest to my final
DEF- Lloyd, Savage, Lmac, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson
MID- Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Bontempelli, Coniglio, A Brayshaw, LDU, Holman
RUCK- Lycett, Simpson
FWD- Billings, McLean, Papley, D Smith, Petracca, Sicily

    Ja191 · 07/03/2018 at 14:27

    find a way to get gawn in the ruck

      Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 07:30

      Gawn is very tempting!

    Josephine Tymms · 07/03/2018 at 14:40

    Try again p

    Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 17:06

    Picking your top 6 forwards all at once is a terrible idea – I know we can't trust the rookies but we can't really trust the premos. There will be a breakout and someone who drops that you will want to pick up later. Go Papley and petracca to rookies and get gawn and Kreuzer in the ruck.

      gordo29 · 08/03/2018 at 01:15

      Isn’t he aloud to do something different?

        ZerrettForPM · 08/03/2018 at 04:32

        no he's mute.

        Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 07:27

        thankyou! really wanted to do something different to everyone else this year to push myself foward in the rankings, also got almost 600k in the bank for upgrades πŸ™‚

      Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 07:30

      600K in the bank will hopefully allow me to upgrade my defence quicker than most and I wanted to try fit as many mid and defence rookies as i can as i see most value in those lines

      Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 07:40

      also finnius whilst that is probably the safest idea and thankyou, I dont think its such a terrible idea, Simpson and Lycett are in there to make some quick cash while lobb, nic nat and vardy are out, and i have been watching petracca and papley since the end of last year and like what i see, more cash in the bank too

    Doughboy · 08/03/2018 at 01:37

    I like it LLD!……..McLean, Savage and no Dusty, is just the changes i was tinkering with

      Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 07:28

      Thanks heaps! Few boys in my team im pretty keen on McLean Papley Sicily Lmac Savage all have to start for me

Blaknight · 07/03/2018 at 14:26

Witherden or Shaw?

    Clueless · 07/03/2018 at 14:31


    Starkingdom · 07/03/2018 at 17:28

    I would go Witherden. Forget his turd game in the JLT, you know he can play.

    Lazza · 07/03/2018 at 20:52

    Neither. Shaw too slow, Witherden awkward price.. if that’s your price range better options in Lloyd, Tuohy and Savage. I have none of these though … would rather have Sicily. If you have him already then Lloyd…

Paul V · 07/03/2018 at 14:37

Would love you thoughts here.

Sicily/Jack Graham/Stef Martin
Coffield/Coniglio/Stef Martin (this option means Laird/Hibberd/Rampe only premiums in DEF.)

    Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 17:03

    Option 3. Would be reviewing the rampe selection

Frizzy fruit · 07/03/2018 at 14:45

With Naismith out, the stocks of Cameron round 14 bye will soar, esp if you have Kreuzer round 12 bye and Gawn round 13 bye

StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 14:53

Ryder & Naughton (D4) or
Lycett & Shaw (D4)

gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:21

Who do you think will average more Ryder or Shaw and there's your answer

    StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 15:27

    Thanks Gator, that’s a line ball call. They should run close 100 avg. The question ties my broader question on Lycett to boost D4, hope Lycett makes cash and upgrade to Ryder later (after his bye). See my earlier post further up this chain.

      gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:38

      My take on your side is 3 premos down back .. 5 premos in mids strengthen the fwds and ditch lycett and get kruz in .. hope this helps you

        StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 15:45

        Ok will have a play around. Kruz & Gawn going to drain cash. Might be tough call.

          gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:48

          only way to go mate … you may think your losing a premo but in reality you will be gaining imho… who ever u pick will average around the same .. no need for upgrading and having nightmares over your ruck department

            StevoRivo · 07/03/2018 at 16:00

            My fallback is Ryder not Kruz. That can work too.

    Lazza · 07/03/2018 at 21:15

    Is Patch handing out tablets!!! What are you guys on to be even thinking about Shaw.
    Ryder will outscore Shaw by more than 20 points. Ryder is Top 20 overall. Shaw wasn’t anywhere near the top 100 last year. Closer to 150 than 100.

gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:45

Ok guys i'm opening up another league called…. Fish'n'Cripps …. This a private league… Just let me know your name, team name and where you finished last year and i'll review and consider who stays and who goes… Code is……486097…. this is my last and final league

    Dovaas · 07/03/2018 at 15:50

    In TEAM: FLAYD finished last year 811


      gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 15:55

      OK Dovaas step right in and order some fish'n'cripps.. gl mate… btw a good finish from last year

        LUKE · 07/03/2018 at 18:31

        Finished top 3000 last year. Regular in the 6000 finish. Closest was 600. Been a long time player for the last 7 years

          gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 18:56

          well done luke.. welcum

    AuroraBorealis?! · 07/03/2018 at 18:51

    Just joined Gator,
    Team name is Scorpions FC, finished at 7k last year and 2.3k in 2016

      gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 18:56

      good stuff Grayson .. gl mate

        AuroraBorealis?! · 07/03/2018 at 20:28

        Thanks mate, you too

    TheBenchmark25 · 07/03/2018 at 20:39

    The benchmark 4500ish last year and got as high as 777 before a few risks at the end nailed me down the pecking order

      gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 22:03

      well done Bencher .. GL Mate

ILove PatrickCripps · 07/03/2018 at 15:51

Anyone else planning to start all of Mitchell, Dusty and Danger in their team?

    INPieman · 07/03/2018 at 15:55

    Yep. And Fyfe

      gator59 · 07/03/2018 at 16:25

      Hi Pieman jump into the Fish'n'Cripps League above if you want.. cheers mate

    MidPricers<3 · 07/03/2018 at 16:02

    I'm not going for any of them. I think there are too many good value players in the midfield compared to the other lines. Hopefully Kelly and Fyfe will serve as good enough captains until I can get Danger at about round 6.

    Liam · 07/03/2018 at 16:02

    Yep ad Kelly.

      Liam · 07/03/2018 at 16:02

      And Fyfe.

    Tibor · 07/03/2018 at 16:26

    Yep and chuck in Fyfe , Whitfield and JOM.

      Skindog · 08/03/2018 at 16:47

      Yep with fyfe and bont/cripps/crouch/kelly

    Moustachio · 07/03/2018 at 16:49

    Waste of money, too much cash generation available in mids and hardly any in def/fwd. Danger maybe, would love to see him in one match alongside GAJ.

      Starkingdom · 07/03/2018 at 17:24

      As a Cats fan I'm hoping they try out do each other resulting in massive scores all year.

    The Ranger · 07/03/2018 at 17:42

    Nope, just Danger and Titch.

Maverick · 07/03/2018 at 15:54

chasing some advice please
MID option 1 : 5 uber premiums & 3 rookies like dow, brayshaw and banfield

MID Option 2: 5 premiums, coniglio & brayshaw + banfield

really want option 1 to work for the $$ to spend elsewhere but love the coniglio pick for points.

    Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 17:01

    I would go option one as I back the mid rookies more than any others

    Carl · 07/03/2018 at 23:13

    If you’re picking Coniglio you’re banking he’ll go 110ave and therefore be a top10 mid. Otherwise it’s pointless because you’ll have to trade him out. So option 1, as finnius said there are plenty of good mid rookies this year

Steve · 07/03/2018 at 16:12

Probably the safest rendition of my team so far. Most likely the smartest way to start my team, but I keep getting awful mid-priced thoughts in my head.

Any thoughts so far?

B: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Mirra)
M: Danger, Mitchell, Crouch, Merrett, Fyfe, Coniglio, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Garlett, Holman)
F: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Stephenson, Ahern, Fritsch (Ballendan, Ryan)

58k left

    Tibor · 07/03/2018 at 16:30

    The rewards are there Those of us who grabbed Oliver at a bit over 300 last year are still laughing. Why grab a premium unless you are absolutely sure or a rookie just because he gets picked for round 1 every time. Have a crack at picking the break out player….

      neil Demons Delight · 07/03/2018 at 20:50

      TIBOR quite right I had OLIVER and I will give another MELKSHAM

        Tibor · 07/03/2018 at 22:27

        Thoughts on Petracca Neil, I was pretty bullish on him but he is not super cheap. Hogan is cheap if he gets a decent run he could be the break out…options at West Coast too for blokes getting better roles in the absence of Mitchell and Priddis, Redden maybe.

        I like a bit of mid price madness without it we all end up with teams that are too similar and boring….

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 08/03/2018 at 11:26

        Hey Neil, Did you drop out of Up There Cazaly? Hope you can make it back in Buddy 212948 just incase you lost league no!

      The_Blacksheep · 08/03/2018 at 10:38

      Parish is a real chance to break out this year. Mid time is guaranteed, its just a matter of how much??

    neil Demons Delight · 07/03/2018 at 17:24


      Steve · 07/03/2018 at 17:52

      R: Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron)

Mongoose · 07/03/2018 at 16:32

Of course. And naturally they will drop in price but the problem is: who will you have to sell to buy back in.

TherealCutto · 07/03/2018 at 17:02

Thanks for picking up the slack fella's. Keep up the great work

    Lekdog · 08/03/2018 at 08:07

    Thanks mate

Finnius · 07/03/2018 at 20:26

Cripps and Dusty or Clayton and Crouch?

    HarryOld · 07/03/2018 at 20:33

    All 4…go on..you know you want to

    Ja191 · 07/03/2018 at 20:40

    clayon and crouch, dusty will drop at some time similar to last year pick him up then

    Tyruddanaut · 07/03/2018 at 22:10

    Def Cripps and Dusty.

Rick Grimes · 07/03/2018 at 21:32

Nanscrevis locked after tonight. Looks to be going to another level. 100+ ave and undervalued.

    Russty_ · 07/03/2018 at 21:55

    13 contested possessions, 7 tackles, 21 disposals, 132 SC points..pretty darned good mate.

    Lekdog · 08/03/2018 at 08:07

    Underpriced, will he be top 5 ruckmen though?

Tyruddanaut · 07/03/2018 at 22:10

Supercoach Team of the Week:

Def: Rampe, Savage, Hibberd, Marchbank, Langdon, Shaw

Mid: Redden, Fyfe, Shuey, Gaff, Coniglio, Steven, Neal-Bullen, JP Kennedy

Ruck: Gawn, Martin

Fwd: Franklin, Caddy, Melksham, D. Smith, Lynch (GC), Harmes

Total Score: 2903

    ZerrettForPM · 08/03/2018 at 12:27

    Danger will score 193 jus sayin

GloryDays90 · 07/03/2018 at 22:28

Is anyone else considering Nank this year? Could be a POD

    Carl · 07/03/2018 at 23:47

    Prefer Stef for similar price, likely to ave 10 points per game more.

Ben · 07/03/2018 at 22:52

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Simpson, Coffield, Naugton, Finlayson (Doedee, Watson)

MID: Danger, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Shuey, Armitage, A.Brayshaw, Banfield (Kelly, Holman, Barry)

RUC: Martin, Gawn (Olango)

FWD: Buddy, Walters, D.Smith, Sicily, Stephenson, Fritsch (Ryan, Ahern)

Any feed back would be appreciated, still very tempted to take lycett at R2, push sicily down back and grab someone like toby mclean up forward.

    Laird Lad Donuts · 08/03/2018 at 09:07

    Really like it ben, solid defence and some really good pods, buddy walters and shuey look like excellent picks to me

Skinny McThin · 07/03/2018 at 22:53

Excuse me for repeating myself but I like the look of my own voice.
What is the advice that you are giving on Lycett?
Are you suggesting that an average of 80 for 12-weeks is good enough for our R2? Or are you suggesting that we should pay 277k for our R3 so that we can make 150K over 12-weeks?
Are you guys on crack?

    Carl · 07/03/2018 at 23:46

    People are suggesting Lycett for R2 and Cameron for R3. The idea that Lycett has ave 80 before and Is a chance to improve that as a sole ruckman

      Skinny McThin · 08/03/2018 at 00:04

      He's averaged a lot injuries before to Carl, they have another bloke at the eagles who can ruck Nack Knitanewy or something. He's only a little bit broken atmo should be fixed soon surely not more than 8-weeks from now. The of course they also have Mcinnes and that Mcgovern bloke so, if you think Lycett will ever be sole ruck you're all on crack.

        ZerrettForPM · 08/03/2018 at 04:34

        We don't think Lycett will be a sole ruck all season. Only for 5-9 weeks hopefully. We want him to go up a bit in cash, whilst also ideally scoring around that 80-90 mark. As soon as Ryder's bye is over bam.

Larry · 08/03/2018 at 00:04

Any thoughts welcome

Def, Laird. Hibberd. Simpson. Sicily. Naughton. Doedee………..Finlayson. Murphy

Mids. Danger. Dusty. Titch. Fyfe. Whitfield. JOM. Dow. Barry………..Banfield. Ballard. Holman

Ruck. Gawn. Lycett…………..Cameron

Fwd. Heeny. Dev Smith. Petracca. Hogan. Bolton. Keefe……….Garlett. Ryan

Very little left over, Rookiecan change. Accept the risky mid price fwd set up but am very keen on both the Hogan and Petracca mix. Not sure on Keefe but like the swing with Sicily

    Carl · 08/03/2018 at 00:52

    Love the Whitfield pick – fairly big POD there.
    If you’re stuck on Hogan then sure but I disagree personally. He’s a key fwd that’s where he’ll play a lot of the year.

    I would downgrade JOM to T.Kelly and use the cash to upgrade one of your mid pricer’s to a premo, I would upgrade Hogan.

    I’d also swing Sicily fwd, ditch Keeffe (he’s only good for a 50ave) and bring in Coffield/Mihocheck/Mirra in defense

      Larry · 08/03/2018 at 10:00

      Thanks for the reply, hadn't looked seriously at the names you've thrown up but will.

      Stuck on Hogan is probably the best description just feel price is huge unders if this bloke gets a half decent run. A lot of my team is just the big four plus the same rookies most others have so a bit of a gamble here and there is almost a must

David E · 08/03/2018 at 07:23

Def – Laird, P.Hanley, Hibberd (Melb), O'Shea, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Cummins)

Mid – Titch, Danger, Fyfe, THE Zorko,J Kelly, Ahern, Dow, Holman (Barry, Worpel, T Kelly)

Rucks – Gawn,Sandilands (Cameron)

Fwd – Heeney, J Kennedy, Smith, Barlow, Higgins , Rioli (Ryan, Fritsch)

Tyler · 08/03/2018 at 09:53

Anyone reckon Kruuezer will back up 2017 and finish top 2? My current structure is banking on him to do it. If people think he won't who do you think top 2 will be?

    Big G · 08/03/2018 at 11:58

    Can't believe he is not more heavily selected. Keep it on the low-down….

Big G · 08/03/2018 at 12:00

Some discussions on forward options please. Is Buddy a better option than Heeney? Are Devon Smith or Toby McLean really solid F3 options? Thoughts on Toby Greene being a top 5 forward by average by season's end?

    Post_MaSloane · 08/03/2018 at 13:48

    I would say Buddy would score more than Heeney, but it will be a rollercoaster of ups and downs. I think you could do a lot worse than Smith and McLean, I'd say they'd be good for a 90 average. Toby Greene may be top 5 forwards, but surely you wouldn't ruin the integrity of your team by selecting such a flog

      Lenny · 08/03/2018 at 14:17

      Yep he is a super flog and that can't be ignored. Having said that we picked Goddard for years. Toby toss bag might be just too good to ignore.

      Can you have both Toby and Sicily in the same team? Where does it end.? The short answer is Riewoldt . Bottom line maybe just one flog and leave it there….

    Bells · 09/03/2018 at 01:32

    Buddy will be the number 1 fwd this year. Heeney could go either way – Hewett is ready for more midfeld time and looks a bit quicker this preseason (Swans REALLY need a bit of pace). Papley is going to get more mid time as he is a bloody good extractor. It just might be Heeney that has the price dip this year, not Buddy.

PeterL · 08/03/2018 at 12:13

Thoughts Anyone, i'm fairly settled my main concern is FWD but need to confirm which rookies will play in Rnd1
Def – Laird, Hibberd (Melb), Sicily, Marchbank, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Mirra)

Mid – Martin, Titch, Fyfe, THE Bont, Cripps, Heeney, Libba, Brayshaw(Freo) (Barry, J Garlett, Holman)

Rucks – Gawn,Sauce (Hayes)

Fwd – Dahlhaus, Lobb, Stringer, Fogarty, Higgins, Ahern (Ryan, Fritsch)

    ZerrettForPM · 08/03/2018 at 12:22

    FWD line may be shaky this season. I recommend perhaps starting Sicily there instead and invest in another defender rookie like Finlayson.

      PeterL · 08/03/2018 at 12:49

      Thanks Dude. good point.

    Bells · 09/03/2018 at 02:29

    So many risks in your team that can derail your season.
    Bont, Heeney, Libba, Lobb, Stringer, Marchbank.
    I've gone with teams like this before. Never again.
    Heeney should be fwd or not at all. If Lobb makes it back for round 1 then I bet he starts fwd, not as the ruck – in which case avoid. WIll be a good pick if he plays as number one ruck though. Until that is proven consider Heeney to fwd, Lobb out and get another rookie into the mids.
    Stringer?? Why?

Blaknight · 08/03/2018 at 12:29

Pretty happy with my team at its current.

Thoughts / Opinions

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Shaw, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Mirra)
MID: Danger, Titch, Oliver, Crouch, Fyfe, Brayshaw (Freo), Dow, Banfield (Garlett, Kelly, Holman)
RUCK: Martin, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Walters, McLean, Christensen, Ahern, Rioli (Dear, Ryan)

Still not sold on McLean. Was Dalhaus about 5mins ago. Stuggling with that 3rd FWD choice.

30k remaining

    ToughBretts · 08/03/2018 at 17:01

    I'd trade Mclean into Sicily and use the cash to turn one of Shaw or Savage into Hibberd/Yeo

    Tyler · 08/03/2018 at 19:04

    Devon smith f3?

      Blaknight · 09/03/2018 at 09:39

      Yeah it's McLean v Smith v Petracca ATM..

        D_I_L_D_O_R · 09/03/2018 at 11:30

        I've sided with you and gone Mclean, think he will get alot of mid time as the others rotate forward, look at his natural progression from his first 3 years, only needs another 10% and he's a top 10 fwd. Also have D.Smith based on his role. Petracca a bit overated IMO

Jimmy · 08/03/2018 at 12:38

Hi community, I’ve seen a lot of you guys select some cheap rookies for your bench and in an ideal world, the cheaper the better if they play. What gives u the confidence they will play though? I’ve seen Doedoe, Fritsch etc. I’m more inclined to pay a bit more and get Alir Alir for example because I’m confident he will play most games and is an expensive rookie price. Would love to get everyone’s thoughts

    Derek · 08/03/2018 at 17:29

    Cheap rookies will make cash faster. Helps get to full premium faster

    A $123k rookie who scores 60, will go up in price a lot more than a $190k rookie who scores 60. A lot more.

    Marty · 08/03/2018 at 18:42

    Alir Alir injured isn't he?

      Bells · 09/03/2018 at 02:33

      Certainly is and far from a certain best 22 player at this stage despite being talked up in the preseason. Could end up playing ruck this year, in which case he'll be a REALLY interesting player.
      Cameron starting ruck tomorrow as he's the only one not injured.

Browncow · 08/03/2018 at 12:55

I think it is the year of the high priced rookie Jimmy. Lots of options in the 150-200 bracket. Might be worth checking out Naughton and Coffield before Alir if you haven’t already.

    Jimmy · 08/03/2018 at 14:16

    Yeah already have them both and needed another one. Also going with Byrne from the blues

      Browncow · 08/03/2018 at 16:33

      Definitely a year to think outside the box. I don’t mind Byrne. Was in pretty good form before he did his knee and seemed to be able to find the ball. Food for thought.

TheBenchmark25 · 08/03/2018 at 13:37

Jeremy Cameron
As a legitimate pod? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
That is me officially out. I tried to stay on but jock had thought me enough to leave this community 'new'

Surferboi · 08/03/2018 at 16:02

Liking the podcasts fellas! Can we discuss Degoey? If he keeps his nose clean, surely a top 6 contender. Played very well at the end of last season and will get more time in the mids. Lock in my team of starts round 1

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 08/03/2018 at 16:21


      Surferboi · 08/03/2018 at 18:23


Corey · 08/03/2018 at 18:55

Am I Crazy?
Forward Line
Walters, Pertracca, Caddy, D.Smith, Ahern, Ryan,
Garlett, Poholke

    Derek · 08/03/2018 at 19:53

    That might be a serious case of MM.

    I don’t mind the occasional midpricer, but I much prefer the Fallen Premium type midpricer than the Gut-feeling one.

    Was Walters ever “premium”?

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 21:38

    Hi Corey, just say no to Caddy mate..he's too up and down..mostly down.
    I'd punt Ahern too, Fritsch might be a better option.

      Corey · 08/03/2018 at 22:08


    DunNuthin · 09/03/2018 at 12:21

    Not crazy corey somebody has to lose

Derek · 08/03/2018 at 18:59

The more I change my team, the more Guns n rookie it is becoming.

Only have 2 midpricers in team, Shaw D3 and Devon F4. Although Some would argue they are both premiums!

JOM and Armitage, Barlow, Coniglio and Lycett are other Midpricers who have been in and out of my team.

I’ve not had a good history with Midpricers unless they have been true Fallen Premium. Shaw fits that category well. Armitage and Coniglio are close to fallen premiums and should be considered at their prices. Devon I’m not sure about, he is a popular pick but yet to reach a premium status. If a good rookie option appears in the forward line he could make way for Armitage or Coniglio in the guts.

Ryder still there but the Round 10 bye still hurts my head. Cox at F5 might be a solution with a DPP at R3.

Current Team.

Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Coffied, Doedee, Finlayson. (Mirra, Mihocek)

Dangerfield, Dusty, Fyfe, TMitch, MCrouch, Brayshaw, Barry, Banfield (Kelly, Spargo, Holman)

Ryder, Gawn (Cameron)

Franklin, Heeney, Billings, Devon Smith, Christensen, Venables (Ryan, Garlett)

    Big G · 08/03/2018 at 20:19

    Big call with Ryder. Nice forward line – how sold on Devon Smith are you? Personally I love going big (6 premos) in the midfield because I know that is where the points come from but I like how you have 5 great premo mids.

      Derek · 08/03/2018 at 22:06

      Not a big fan of Devon. Liked a few games he played at GWS last year but then would go missing.

    dontblushbaby · 08/03/2018 at 21:30

    Derek, mate ,you weren't going to start with TMitch ,what changed your mind ? also no Barlow – you were big on him ?
    Personally I liked your other team that you posted elsewhere where you had a definite 13 keepers , not sure about Lloyd,Shaw ect will be top 6.
    Please don't take offence as I value you your commentary on everything Supercoach
    PS – l'll post my team shortly and I will welcome you reply , Cheers and Good Luck

      Derek · 08/03/2018 at 22:04

      I had JOM from the start, thinking he would be taking points from TMitch. Didn’t see enough out of JOM to keep him in my team or to suggest he will affect TMitch.

      Lloyd is probably my least favourite choice. He is there in his value, probably should be $500k, but I’m not a fan. Hibberd is too expensive, Shaw might not be there after tomorrow’s game or he could be locked in

      Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it.

        Derek · 08/03/2018 at 22:05

        Oliver did look good tonight with Gawn in ruck

          dontblushbaby · 08/03/2018 at 22:28

          Agree on Oliver looking good but he gave away 4 free kicks and had 7 clangers with 19 bloody handballs ,but still had 98 SC Points, not sure if this is a coincidence with Max in the Ruck, please someone show some stats with Max n Oliver playing together ,Cheers

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 21:34

    Hey Derek, I like your squad, Petracca might be one to consider over Smith or even Heeney, Trac could have a big year, and he's not returning from anything bad, like injuries or bad form, looks like he's getting into his stride.
    Guns n Rookies or Midpriced madness can both end up flopping, the rookies have to play if you have a bunch of em..and score decently. I like a good balance somewhere in between GNR and Midpriced madness lol
    Mirra being 'rested' this week, not sure what that means.
    Will Barry, Banfield, Spargo, Venables and Garlett start round 1?…not sure, Garlett is injured, don't know much about the others.

      Derek · 08/03/2018 at 21:55

      we all know that the rookies change everything.

Defying_Madness · 08/03/2018 at 19:52

Fritsch is looking very good, hopefully he gets named round 1 to lessen the lack of rookies in the forward line

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 21:39

    I think he will DM, he's done enough I think.

Brett · 08/03/2018 at 21:01

Love playing sc but live in Sydney as a Collingwood supporter I’m on my pat interested in joining a league with people who share my enthusiasm..been playing for 4 years improving each year best finish 12000’s would love a start

LUKE · 08/03/2018 at 21:07

Greene + T Mitchell or Papley + Danger ???

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 21:42

    Find a way to get Greene and Danger if you are keen on Greene, expect a few suspensions during the season though.

      dontblushbaby · 08/03/2018 at 22:41

      I believe you will see a different Tobias Greene this year, new 6 year contract and they have demanded leadership from him, he's in my team and I predict he will be the highest priced FWD this year ,

LUKE · 08/03/2018 at 21:08

Oliver + Hogan or Fyfe + Petracca ???

    BrownlowBoy · 08/03/2018 at 21:18

    Fyfe and Petracca

    Russty_ · 08/03/2018 at 21:26

    Agree with BB, Fyfe is cheap and Petracca's been everywhere in this game, looking like a great pick.

dontblushbaby · 08/03/2018 at 21:56

Yeo, Laird, Lloyd, Naughton, Dooday, Finlayson,Mihochek ,Mirra
Danger, Dusty, TMitch, Kelly, Fyfe, Armo, Banfield, T.Kelly, Holman, Dow, Barry
Gawn, Simpson, Cameron
Heeney, Greene, Barlow, Smith, Christensen ,Fritsch, Garlett, Ryan

Would love to have Coniglio, JOM, Hanley in my team, still might

12 keepers IMO, obviously everything is subject to change

dontblushbaby · 08/03/2018 at 22:05

Tracca was good tonight, 104 SC points with 15 CP's , not in my current team ,but might be

Nick · 08/03/2018 at 22:19

What is everyone’s thoughts on Dawson as R2?

    Derek · 08/03/2018 at 22:40

    If plays Round 1 I’d pick him ahead of Lycett who has Vardy and NicNat to compete with

      D_I_L_D_O_R · 09/03/2018 at 11:32

      Even with Lobb due back in the first few rounds?

        Derek · 09/03/2018 at 13:41

        Simpson looks like a ruck. Big strong and slow.

        Lobb looks like he will struggle with the weekly battle in the ruck.

        Could be Simpson gets first crack, with a midfield like GWS even i’d Manage a few hits to advantage, I can see him doing ok and holding the first ruck spot.

        Lycett will be second behind NicNat

Bells · 08/03/2018 at 23:52

Nice podcast fellas.
Has NicNat had another setback? I thought he's due back in early rounds and Lycett surely goes out. Plan totally destroyed.

      I do agree with that. Some people just seem to give up once it becomes harder. But then some people give up for different reasons. All we can hope for is that people dont give up. Yes it becomes more challenging as the season goes on. But hey, Thats what its all sbout.

    Well it's 10 actually. But I have Weitering, Coniglio, and D.Smith. I'm predicting one of these will also become a keeper.
