Published by Barron Von Crow on

I’ve often spent countless hours tinkering with my Supercoach side in the past, trying multiple versions of different setups, but I’ve been fairly consistent with my side this year and gone with my first gut reaction on the majority of my side. The little man inside is confident this year, he thinks he knows what he’s doing. I’ve often suspected he’s a complete moron, but he tells me he’s not and then asks if I want a donut, which usually gets me to forget the argument pretty quickly.

So here is what my gut reaction, little man inside has dished up for my Supercoach side for 2018!


I won’t spend too long dwelling on premium picks, so guys like Laird and Hibberd should speak for themselves. I’ve gone with Jeremy McGovern at D3, just on the belief that the ball my find its way into the Eagles defensive half a bit more often in 2018, which will give him more opportunities to do his intercept thing across half back, while the rest of my defence is filled out by rookie selections.


I’m starting with Danger! At least, I’m locking in the option to start with him, I’ll wait until the last second to give him a thumbs up or a thumbs down, but the point more was I wanted to get a side set with him in it that I was happy with, rather than start without him and then having to make last second compromises all across the place to try and scrape together the extra $100K+ to buy him. If it looks like he’ll be out for awhile and/or hampered and plonked up forward when he returns, I may just trade him to Dusty Martin and pocket the extra $100K as a rainy day fund.

I’ve also selected Tom Mitchell ahead of my boy Matt Crouch, just on the belief that the addition of Bryce Gibbs may see a few contested possessions taken away from him, while the opposite is the reasoning for selecting Luke Shuey, who may have even more opportunities with Priddis and Sam Mitchell gone. Coniglio is hard to pass up based on previous form, his current JLT form and his starting price, while Brayshaw looked too good in the JLT to ignore, even at the premium rookie price.


Sam Jacobs is just a good, solid ruckman for Supercoach. He’ll have another quality midfielder like Gibbs at his feet to hopefully get him more hitouts to advantage, while there’s little worry of him being replaced or the Crows playing a 2nd genuine ruck to give him a spell (To call Josh Jenkins a ruck is an insult to ruckman. He’s just a big bloke who just jumps in the air).

Mitchell King is purely for ruck loophole purposes. He is more expensive than selecting a 102K rookie, but he’s an easy swap with Gawn and Melbourne have 8 Sunday/Monday games in the first 12 rounds of the year, which will maximize the amount I can use him as a loophole in the early part of the year, should I trade Dangerfield back out.

If Danger is in the side, I may free up a tiny bit more cash by downgrading him to someone like Tony Olango (West Coast have an equal high 12 Sunday games across the season, tied with Melbourne, so he still has use as a loophole, just not as much early in the year).


I just didn’t like many of the forward rookies this year, so I’ve gone more expensive at F4 with James Siciliy, who also opens up a DEF/FWD swing with Lachlan Keeffe should he remain in my side. The 3 main premo’s aren’t any massive leaps of faith, but shouldn’t have any issues remaining top 10 FWD selections.

And that’s my side, I hope you all like it, but I’d love to hear your comments and suggestions in the comments below.


Russty_ · 18/03/2018 at 23:41

Hey Barron, how much money left mate?…I don't mind it at all, except for maybe Shuey and two rookies in the fwd line.
McGov's probably a pod right now, and the ball WILL be in the Eagles backline a lot!
I think as is, it'll score decently….but I'd like to see someone like Christensen/ McCartin in the fwds to reduce risk…but hey that's just me.

    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 10:37

    $7,200 left. As I said, if I go without Danger I can have some cash to play around with, but I don't think Christensen / McCartin are grand slam guarantees this year, but they will be considered.

    leedy · 19/03/2018 at 19:18

    Agreed re Shuey. Started with him last year and he stunk it up and stuck like the proverbial. Couldn't shake him off no matter what I tried as my team was crap and I was attending to other more pressing matters. Plus he's a dirty little mother ducker!

Nick · 18/03/2018 at 23:44

I like this team Barron. A little different to most, but similar to my structure setup.

Would love some thoughts around my team from the community. In positions other than the "locks" I've tried to pick the guys who are a slightly cheaper price but who I think will be in top 6-8 and then look to trade in fallen premos when the time is right.

100k left in the bank for pre rd1 changes. Also as a side not I see Sicily as being in my DEF and Walters FWD but starting them differently.

Def: Laird, McGovern, Coffield, Murray, Doedee, Finlayson, Keeffe, Mihocek

Mid: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Parker, Walters, Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry, Kelly, Holman

Ruc: Gawn, Nankervis, Olango

Fwd: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Petracca, Sicily, Stephenson, Fritsch, Garlett

Thanks in advance for your thoughts community.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 00:24

    Get Walters out of your midfeild and into your forward line, then ask again

      Nick · 19/03/2018 at 08:20

      He is effectively in the FWD via a Stephenson and Walters switch. Makes np difference where he starts.

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 09:10

        Yeah it does. Forwards are thin this year, midfeild is deep. Makes no sense at all putting Walters in your midefeild. And with saying Stephenson and Walters are interchangeable you midfeild then becomes very weak. Just giving you advice because you asked for it.

          SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 09:58

          Spot on WOW, he already has maxed out his fwd spots if Walters were to move into fwd line and then say swap petracca out for a coniglio in mid…..I know for the same price who will score more!

        LuskinStar · 19/03/2018 at 10:39

        Makes a huge difference. lets say he scores 95. That is a good score on fwd line and a below par score in mids.

          Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 17:18

          Hey LuskinStar!! Did you notice my handle (name)? Star Kingdom is grandsire of Luskin Star, how coooool.

      Post_MaSloane · 19/03/2018 at 10:57

      I don't mind that as a start. As soon as he has the cash to upgrade a forward rookie, he can grab a fallen premium mid and swing Walters forward, but in the short term I'd prefer to be fielding Stephenson on field as the sole forward rookie than Tim Kelly as the third midfield rookie.

      I agree with you Wow that Walters definitely should not be in the mids as a keeper, but in terms of the way he fits this structure I think it's justified

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:22

        Doesn’t justify it for me, don’t think there is any harm in helping this guy out early with his team. Any serious contender will definitely not be starting a fwd/mid in their midfeild

        Nick · 19/03/2018 at 17:06

        That's the plan. Walters is intended as a FWD and Sicily as as DEF.

        If i had posted the team with Walters FWD and Stephenson MID what would the outcome be? The same score either way. The only actual suggestion is mobing Walters forward and then swapping a petrascca for a mid. Thst's a different ball game

          SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 17:08

          yep, Stephenson in mid would never happen, as I said your fwds already deep and having walters there you can sacrifice a fwd for a better scoring mid like coniglio….

            Nick · 19/03/2018 at 17:53

            Yep, and that's a different setup. Agree.

              Nick · 19/03/2018 at 17:55

              Anything else on selections, rather than structure?

    Ryan · 20/03/2018 at 14:32

    I really like your team but I have to agree with the others on Walters, I’d rather Cripps for 46k more or Coniglio for 39k less

Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 00:20

First team I’ve seen with Heeney Billing’s and Greene in defence. Looks solid

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 00:28

    haha some pod 'Forwards' there too…I'm guessing that's because it was a bit rushed or something?

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 00:39

    Yeh this is a really rare team. Crazy fwd and defence!!!!

    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 10:37

    The best offense is a good defense!

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 10:38


Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 00:30

Not sold on Sauce, paying a lot for a guy that will be mediocre. Also midfield looks a bit shaky. Shuey is risky, don’t see why crouch can’t improve on last year, with more game time. Agree that your fwds are thin and you’re in risk of copping bad scores in there. Because of this I currently have Sicily F5.

    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 10:38

    He'll be fine, finished 6th for the rucks last year, could easily improve another 5 points with an extra HTA or two.

    I don't think Crouch will get more gametime, he's limited tank wise, that's probably his biggest weakness.

      Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 10:46

      Each to their own. When I’m picking rucks I’m going with 1&2 predictions.

      Just don’t see any danger on Crouch losing out on possentions, he’s a ball magnet and a good preseason could see him push his TOG into the 80’s. Crows are too good to not have one of their mids in the top 10.

        BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 11:12

        I don't think there's a super high chance he'll do any worse, but i'm not predicting him to do any better either and I don't see his TOG raising significantly enough to have him penciled in for better scores.

          Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 11:20

          Had a pretty good average last year even with a slow start. With so many early home games and a solid role in the team I don’t see that happening this year, leading to a much higher average

SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 00:45

Mmmmm interesting team. Apart from shuey there's nothing to really seperate you from the pack mate.

If Greene doesn't cop a suspension up until his bye I will then get him in. Until then his head is loose on those shoulders so will not be hurting my team by sitting on the sidelines for wreckless behaviour.

With Heeney he has had an interrupted pre season, I'll wait for his price drop but his avg spikes through his 3 years suggest he will be 100+ this season.

    pod · 19/03/2018 at 10:11

    Why is it soooo essential to be totally different from most teams? I reckon he's looking ok and set for a big season. You're wrong about Greene, he's a star get on board.

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 10:14

      He is a star but he is also a loose unit who gets suspended. Never doubted his ability in my post. As I said if he's level headed I'll pick up him around byes

    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 10:40

    Shuey, Sauce and McGovern all under 6% ownership, so I think I've got enough to make my side slightly different than most others.

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 12:30

      Yeh good luck with shuey. Eagle's have a ruck crisis atm even if nic nat is back he will have TOG of 65% max. Then you have someone tag shuey out no problems…..they won't target anyone else. Hope I'm wrong for your sake. McGovern may provide some good scores for you and jump his AVG over 91. Hard to see huge scores as a pod to help you rise ranks.

      Sauce is your best pod. Great midfield at his feet. Good choice. Plus the GF heartbreak, his last year so he will put in!

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:10

        With you on that one 66. Don’t see how Shuey will be top 10, career best avg of 105, and is in a much weaker team this year, will cop the tag. Investing quite a lot of money into a defender that has been up and down throughout his career and has a best avg of 90. I’m picking premos to finish top in there respective positions or I’m not picking at all

          SW Roosters XXX · 19/03/2018 at 14:49

          This mutual admiration society between SC_Sixty6 and Sc-Wow is mildy amusing……

              SW Roosters XXX · 19/03/2018 at 15:45

              Time will tell mate….

              I don't need to shout my credentials from the roof tops….. But I will take the bait – I have been a pretty consistent performer year in year out in the various forms of fantasy football….. Had a few top 300 finishes in supercoach and finished top 30 in Dream Tream a few years back – although I must admit I took the gas and choked massively that year as I was ranked number 1 with 4 rounds to go……

              No issue with you giving advice mate, lets just hope your bubble doesn't burst…….. one thing to talk the talk but you still have to walk the walk……

                Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 15:50

                Well you seemed to have an issue with the advice in your previous comment. And I didn’t think you’d have anything to say in regards to backing up your accusations.

                Cool join the league and see how you go then

              SW Roosters XXX · 19/03/2018 at 15:48

              Not sure you are stating facts rather just giving an opinion….
              Your opinions, predictions and assertions will not be proven to be factual or otherwise until the season kicks off…..

                Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 16:45

                I’d say it’s pretty factual that Shuey has a high avg of 105, wouldn’t you?
                Give me your opinion on that great selection

            Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:36

            I thought that too Rooster, they seem to be one and the same, on at the same time. My guess it's someone working on this site, to stir up a conversation or two.

              Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 16:46

              You couldn’t be more wrong Stark

    The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 15:19

    Surely Greene is just as likely to cop a ban after his bye as he is before his bye?
    Am I missing something?

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 15:23

      I'd say less likely. Do something stupid close to finals and he will regret it.

        The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 15:35

        I see ya point but I think you're giving him too much credit…not sure he's capable of controlling himself just because it's nearer to finals! Shame cos he's a bloody good player.

          Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:40

          He's not going be an idiot this year surely. The new coin should keep him happy.

    Liam · 19/03/2018 at 16:32

    Going without Dusty is a pod move. Everyone has him.

will · 19/03/2018 at 01:48

Remove Shuey and add D Smith/McLean/Walters to your forward line, the rookies there are average

    will · 19/03/2018 at 02:23

    and turn Danger/Coniglio into A p o. d

    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 10:40

    Not really a fan of Smith or McLean. I might trade them in later if they perform, but I won't start with them.

      Derek · 19/03/2018 at 12:15

      i can see the attraction of Devon, his price is nice.
      Mclean it think is overpriced for what he will provide.

WinnerRGrinners · 19/03/2018 at 03:50

Can I get your opinion please

DEF Laird, Savage, Ryan, Naughton, S.Murry, Finlayson (Doedee, L.Murphy)
MID Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Crispp, Brayshaw, Banfield, ( Kelly , Barry ,Holman)
RUC Martin , Gawn ( Cameron)
FWD heeney , Smith , Petracca, Taberner, Rayner, Stephenson ( Fritch, L.Ryan)

Cash $46.3k

Sould I swap Laird for Hibberd ???
Do I need Billings????

How do I stop pulling my hair out??


    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 07:41

    I’d defiantly rethink your forward line. Not sure why everyone is jumping on Tab, defiantly wouldn’t have him at F4. Rayner did not show enough to justify his price tag. Also don’t see Crisp being worth a selection.

    Laird and Hib will score similar and cost the same. So doesn’t really matter who you pick. Crows have a lot of early home games so maybe Laird will start better

      Loop · 20/03/2018 at 04:50

      I've tried to ignore it but…… the word is definitely. In past posts I thought that maybe it was a typo but its obviously not.
      Just calling it as it is Wow, trying to be helpful.

    As for not pulling your hair out, I haven't found a remedy. But once cricket season rolls around you should be able to break the habit for a couple of months

    Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 13:58

    Laird V Hibberd. Very similar output. One will work better for your bye plans, Hibberd bye in r13, and Laird in 14…..

    Cheers, John.

Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 10:36

Wondering what's the big appeal about Walters?
Going through his scores from last season he had one huge one at 170, a few purple patches where he got a few tons in a row, and some really bad low scores, just seems very inconsistent to me, not a premo scorer historically either.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 10:49

    Not much value in fwd line is my reasoning. More midfeild time should hopefully see him decrease those low scores, and with a high ceiling I’m not wanting to miss out. Freo have an easy early run so that’s his chance to prove himself to be a lock for the season, if not I’m sure the overpriced Heeney/Franklins will be more affordable by then

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 10:57

    Russty Walters got mid time after their byes and recorded 3 tons including 172 then an 88 and a 47 in that game he got injured. Played same role in JLT which gives his selection promise.

    Post_MaSloane · 19/03/2018 at 11:04

    It's based more on his 'midfield time'. Generally his tons have been coming when we plays in the mid rather than in the forward line, so most people are banking on him rolling through the guts

      Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 11:10

      Wouldn’t say banking. Been watching where he’s been playing and selecting accordingly

        James · 19/03/2018 at 21:40

        No hill brothers jlt which will need to be considered.

          guest · 19/03/2018 at 22:18

          Hill brothers don't play in the guts. Bradley wouldn't know what a contested ball was.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 13:55

    Cheers guys, thanks for the responses 🙂

    Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:54

    Ruusty, he has a huge ceiling. Isn't that a good enough reason?

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:47

      He also has a huge basement Stark…not convinced here, also has an element of flogitude about him, and injuries to boot.

Danielson · 19/03/2018 at 10:59

Could I get some thoughts and opinions on my side please community.
DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray/// Finlayson, mihocek

MID: Mitchell, Ablett, Merrett, Bontempelli, Treloar, Cripps, Brodie, Banfield/// Kelly, Barry, Holman

RUCK: Martin, Gawn/// Cameron

FORWARD: Heeney, Billings, Mclean, Parish,Garlett, Fritsch/// Langdon, Ryan

Ablett is a risk that im willing to take, he is an all time great and has had an interupted preseason apart from his hamstring mishap recently. His shoulder (the main problem) looks in perfect knick and from all reports the problems concerning the shoulder are gone. My thought process is that when he plays, he is a 115+ average player. Injury is a very plausible possibility yet im willing to risk it anyway in hopes that the reward is greater then the risk, and at the end of the day he can be quickly traded if a problem does arise. Merrett is someone that im predicting to naturally improve on his output within a bombers team that will improve. He will be in brownlow contention for this year. Bontempelli is just one of those players that is bound to have a huge brownlow winning year. He is a game changer and doesnt need a lot of touches to score highly, predicting a 112+ average from him. Treloar is someone who has had a dismal year in 2017 and is a proven premium scorerk, averaging 110+ in the past. He is still young, free from injury, and im predicting him to bounce back strongly and imrpove his DE% somewhat.
Martin and Gawn are self explanatory.
My forward line is perhaps the biggest risk and the line im not completely set on as of yet. Mclean is there as im hoping that his natural progression will see him average 92+. Parish is someone that noone has and is my biggest POD. He was a top 5 pick and is bound to have a breakout season where he averages 90+. Im predicting this year to be the year with an increase in his midfield minutes aswell as extra weight. He is in the sweet spot of 40 games and in my opinion he will average higher then devon smith. Mclean and Parish can be changed to Petracca and Smith, however I much prefer the mclean and parish combo. The 2 starting rookies is probably my biggest risk in this team. The only reason that its a risk is because all of the options are small forwards, not the fact that they wont play. Im understanding that one of the starting rooks are likely to drop me a 30-40. Id rather cop a shit score from a 120k player every second week then start with a midpricer im not confident in such as Sicily, Walters, etc. I am also not willing to change the structure of other lines to accomodate one less rookie in the forward line. Please provide me your opinions community, I will try to justify this team further once I recieve some feedback.
Cheers community

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 11:16

    Even if I gave feedback, I'd just come across as a dick according to you.

      Danielson · 19/03/2018 at 11:17

      Id accept feedback buddy, just dont need to be condescending when giving it.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 11:32

    Firstly I don’t see any value in Lloyd, has shown to not score well in a full strength Sydney team. You’re right about Ablett, but only in the fact he’s a huge risk. Don’t see him playing every game which means you trade him or sit him on the bench. That’s not something I’m willing to pay 600k plus for. Your Bont and Treloar picks aren’t the best. If you were to predict a top 10 midfeild for end of year do you really think those guys will beat the likes of dusty, danger, Kelly, Oliver, Crouch? Treloar to have another mediocre season for me, who’s he going to kick to? Cox? Pass
    McLean is a good pick, looks like you put some thought into that rather than just predicting a random breakout year like some of your other selections, his avg has improved well over the years. If you’re happy copping a couple of 30’s in the fwd line then I guess I won’t try to persuade you otherwise. Doesn’t make sense to me though.
    Cameron as r3 just seems like a waste of money. Don’t see him cementing a starting place for Sydney, and it leaves you with no loophole option

      Danielson · 19/03/2018 at 12:57

      Cameron will be downgraded to a cheaper ruck option if not named round 1. Im not fully convinced with lloyd either but hes the best option at that price range in the defensive line IMO. Also I am predicting bontempelli to finish in the top 10 midfielders, Treloar to be not far off and be around 11th. Treloars problem wasnt that he didnt get possessions, it was the way he used them, and im tipping him for a comeback to a 110+ average. Im picking parish for a breakout year as ive been a keen admirer of him ever since he was drafted. I followed him closely and was watching him during his junior games and saw his potential early on. In his second game he secured the bombers a win with a match winning goal. Clutch.. This kid is going to breakout and I dont want to miss out on it when he does. My justification for having low scoring rookies is that they will still make me cash, and the point scoring is made up for in my other players. Id much rather have one low scoring rookie and field and know what im getting from my other players, then have a midpricer im not confident in, in sicily or walters, who i dont like as picks at all. I agree with you regarding ablett, however he is a risk that im willing to take. It could backfire on me, however if it doesnt it will prove greatly beneficial.

        Derek · 19/03/2018 at 13:10

        bit of cognitive bias with Young Parish by the sounds of it.

          Derek · 19/03/2018 at 13:11

          i have the same with Mills. My son played with him at the swans academy, nice kid.

    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 13:02

    when i look back on the years i have done ok and the years i have done not ok, the one thing that stands out more than anything…. is the health of my starting premiums!

    sometimes this is just good luck or rotten luck.

    if you have premiums miss a week or 2 and you have a Pickett or Simpkin on field, world of hurt.

    it is bad luck if you pick a premium who hasn't missed a game all last year and has a perfect pre-season and then has an injury or a smack on the head.

    But if you pick an Ablett, Rocky, Beams, Swallow, mcveigh, Wingard, Sanilands, JOM, Armitage types and they get injuried, i don't think you can blame bad luck.

    last year 7 of my 14 starting keepers finished the year in my team, not a fun year. even JPK, Selwood & pendles started missing games (Cyril was my own fault).

    Start with Ablett, but deep down you know the outcome.

    Also, trying to pick midprice players who will "break out" is statistically impossible. once you factor in a margin of error, the statistically probability is NIL%. Anyone who picked Oliver and Kelly last year got lucky.

    looking back over my last 5 seasons, usually a GnR player, but have been know to throw a few midpricers in the starting team (who can forget my Lobbe & Cloke selections, and don't even talk to me about Rich & BrodieSmith…..). In total i have started 15 midpricers over the last 5 seasons.

    The only ones that would say were a success were Smitchell, Ibbotson, Wells & Sandilands last year. the rest have been awful. What stands out with the successful ones is they were all "fallen premiums".

    Again, i look at my team right now and see Mills and Devon. sigh.

      Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:12

      You seem to be on the same page as me Derick. This game is tough enough, no need to make silly errors and rely on luck to make it even tougher

      Danielson · 19/03/2018 at 13:19

      I tend to agree with you Derek, however ive had a different experience regarding midpricers. My success in picking midpricers included picks such as higgins, cripps, mitchell, wells, and kelly. My losses regarding midpricers included picks such as lumumba (facepalm) and picking Roughead over Nankervis. To succeed in this game is to be a bit lucky in choosing the correct midpricers, a cookie cutter team might put you ahead of the pack, but it wont make you a standout. You have to take a gamble on some of these players and hope for the best.

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:26

        You are pretty set in your ways Dani, and hesitant to listen to pretty solid advice. Maybe just leave your team the way it is and reasses next year.

      Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 14:20

      I'm with you on most of that Derek. Not so sure that a fallen premium is a better mid price gamble than picking the break out. They are all gambles certainly but personally I'd prefer to have a couple rather than just grabbing rookies.

      I think you have to have a clear reason that you think a bloke will break out or return to premium output. I'm talking about a genuine reason not just a lucky guess. I picked Oliver last year and based it on his previous year where he played 13 games and was held back for clear development reasons. I also took a fallen premo that I thought had plenty to prove and would return to premium output, this didn't go so well, best wishes on your retirement Jobe…With mid pricers a team on an upward trend with good players around him always beats mid pricers in a declining team imo

        Derek · 19/03/2018 at 14:44

        I read somewhere there was a good 10+ jump for players who change teams, most of them would be midpricers.

          Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 14:46

          Yeah a change in role if you're certain what that change is would be exactly the sort of genuine reason I'm talking about

          SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 14:55

          Gibbs a 110+ AVG you say then Derek?

            Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 15:20

            I think he's talking about mid price more than premium I don't reckon Gaz goes up by ten either and what Stringer does is anyone's guess. Certainly some mid pricers change clubs get a new role and thrive. That's actually what is supposed to happen when things go as planned.

            Having said that Jack Watts stays firmly on the never again list…

          Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:50

          Ablett will be red hot!!

    Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 15:14

    Not too sure I share your optimism on Parish. I don't think being a top 5 pick a few years back means much. Sometimes a pod is a pod because there are better options available such as Petracca who you do mention as an option and he has the benefit of Max Gawn's ruckwork. Parish also in some injury or fitness doubt having scans today and not training in match simulations. Of the options you mention Petracca and Smith 17 k cheaper than Parish and McLean. To me a reasonably easy choice but if you go with your gut feel Good luck to you..

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/03/2018 at 11:06

Good one BVC.
A west coast pod team with a helping of sauce.
The thing i am wary of is the two rooks on field in the fwd line.
Would only do that if fogarty got a regular gig.
Being a crow man whats your take on the velvet fog?

Also the happy place is up and running again this year. You probably got the invite but if not code is below.



    BarronVonCrow · 19/03/2018 at 11:13

    He might start Round 1, but he'll likely be out once Tex comes back. Crows don't show any signs of dropping Jenkins anytime soon.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 19/03/2018 at 13:34

    All aboard now Trigg! Finally got some time off!!

      neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 18:18

      Hi Shake Is Cazaly full cheers

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:02

        Ive opened a spot for you now Neil. code is 212948 let me know when your in.

          neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 22:03

          just got in thanks shake having massive problems with the team ONLY way to satisfy R14 byes is with the two flogs sicily and greene HATE IT however must be

            Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:12

            Stack your side full of Demons Neil, that'll help round 14.

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/03/2018 at 22:46

            Dammit now ive done it
            Havent looked at my team for a couple of weeks and now put nank on instead of kruez and can fit cogs at m6 and a key fwd at f5 instead of christensen.
            Must stick fat, must stick fat…but looks good with nank in there.

              Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/03/2018 at 09:57

              Thats one of my dilemmas Trigg. I dont want to trade Ryder down to Nank but might have to! What to do??!!

                The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 11:14

                Yep. That same dilemma for me Trigga. Has been all preseason.
                If I drop Kreuzer out other areas of my team get better but I just don't like any of the other ruckmen other than Ryder and I still can't make that work with his bye!

    Finnius · 21/03/2018 at 18:50

    I am in – team Lloyd Pope XVIII

Dylan · 19/03/2018 at 11:26

Unless forward rookies change, this will be my final lineup

Hurley, Hibberd, Laird, Naughton, Finlayson, Doedee (Murray, Murphy)
Danger, Mitchell, Kelly, Fyfe, JPK, Brayshaw, Brodie, Barry (Kelly, Banfield, Holman)
Martin, Gawn (Cameron)
Buddy, Dahlhaus, Barlow, Sicily, Fritsch, Giles (Ryan, Langdon)

$95k in the kitty, a Danger downgrade fwd rookie upgrade gets a 5th strong player but very unsure. Any final tips? Cheers

    The DoggHaus · 19/03/2018 at 11:44

    Sorry, Langdon is supposed to be Garlett. Giles-Langdon on field

Jack · 19/03/2018 at 11:39

Hibberd & o’meara 99k remaining or Tuohy & Coniglio with 22k remaining

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 11:55

    Hibberd and a rookie

      Jack · 19/03/2018 at 12:08

      Leaves me with with 300k left over with nothing to do with as I don’t have any other mid price players to upgrade

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 12:09

        I’m sure you can improve somewhere, fwd line most like JOM not worth it for me

Sam · 19/03/2018 at 11:45

Laird, hibberd, Lloyd, Naughton, doedee, Murray
(Finalayson, Mirra)

Martin, Mitchell, Merrett, Fyfe, Cripps, O’meara, Banfield, Brayshaw
(Holman, Kelly, Barry)

Gawn, Nankervis

Franklin, Heeney, Billings, Smith, Stephenson, Fritsch
(Keefe, Ahern)

90k left over

    noah · 19/03/2018 at 12:22

    solid team omeara a risk but could pay off well

noah · 19/03/2018 at 12:21

what does everyone think about chad wingard and clayton oliver

    Maverick · 19/03/2018 at 12:42

    Oliver yes another season under his belt will increase his tank, wingard no to many new faces at port to run through the midfield now for chad to get the time in there he needs. Better options at his price imo noah

      noah · 19/03/2018 at 12:56

      who would you suggest, i want a player that is a bit different from everyone else but still good

        Maverick · 19/03/2018 at 13:00

        I have lambert… he is only getting better. A tackling machine enjoys a goal an can find the leather. And will rotate through the tigers midfield. A decent pod i believe

        BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 13:48

        Roughead or Cameron

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:56


        Derek · 19/03/2018 at 14:14


    Patch · 19/03/2018 at 13:00

    Clayton Oliver is an excellent selection for mine. Currently in my side.

    Wingard's first name is Chad which is justification enough for me but not sure he's a chance at too much mid time with Rockliff in the side. Willing to be proven wrong but if I am I'll pick him up after his bye

    Steeeve · 19/03/2018 at 17:59

    Chad goes up, down, up, down, up…

    This is his down year.

JKP · 19/03/2018 at 12:33

G’day community

I currently have Christensen at F5.

Am I better saving 65k and picking Rayner who presumably has good job security.

Thoughts appreciated

Purple · 19/03/2018 at 12:45

Sicily in FWD and McGovern down back
Sicily in DEF and Petracca up forward

    Patch · 19/03/2018 at 13:01

    Option one for mine Purple.

    Maverick · 19/03/2018 at 13:02

    The latter purple. Purely because I’m not sold on McGovern is all. But I like the idea of Sicily fwd

    Purple · 19/03/2018 at 13:35

    cheers fellas

StevoRivo · 19/03/2018 at 12:57

Like the team Baron. Should you start with another mid/fwd swing on the fwd bench to swap out with Garlett?

Patch · 19/03/2018 at 13:01

A lot of West Coast in there Baz but being calm and composed means you're in a better spot than I.

    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 13:07

    i want some WCE midfield as well, but i'm just not brave enough.

      Josh · 19/03/2018 at 20:25

      Lack of bravery or could it be presence of Mind…

Maverick · 19/03/2018 at 13:06

Something I’ve noticed this season is 99.98% of teams are starting with a pure mid optioned midfield! Meaning no dual positions in the guts! So different to previous seasons… unfortunately There is Just no good mid/fwd cows worth pickin

    Jalopy · 19/03/2018 at 13:38

    A general rule of SC winners (Not me) is to have pure Mids in the guts and M/F in the fwd line. However, like most of us who have say 4 M/F in the fwd line, we/I am looking for a decent m/f rookie to place on the mid bench and yes, this year they are scarce.

BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 13:13

G'day Barron,

Just thoughts on Coniglio vs Liberatore? Both similar price.

Cheers BB

    BarronVonCrow · 20/03/2018 at 21:11

    Flip a coin! Both have previous Premo status, I just think Cogs has a better head on his shoulders which should hopefully help him a bit more.

FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 13:15

Can I get some advise on current set up lads please:

Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Mirra)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Finlayson, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

Buddy, Walters, Smith, Tracca, Bell, Fritsch (Stephenson, Ryan)

I am tossing up mainly if I downgrade Stephenson to Giles and upgrade Bell? Can even go Cripps down to Cong to try and get someone semi decent perhaps McLean?

    FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 14:11

    No love?

    murray · 19/03/2018 at 14:14

    check my team FTB, similar to yours

    FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 14:18

    Actually even some thoughts on other set up be nice :

    TEAM A

    aird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Mirra)

    Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Finlayson, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

    Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

    Buddy, Walters, Smith, Tracca, Bell, Fritsch (Stephenson, Ryan)

    TEAM B

    Laird, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Mirra)

    Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cong, Brayshaw, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, O'Connor)

    Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

    Buddy, Billings, Walters, Smith, Trecca, Fritsch (Keefe, Ryan)

    I will need to slightly edit above to make the 50k odd missing.

    Thoughts overall?

Mr.Brightside · 19/03/2018 at 13:18

Mark O'Connor (Mid) from the Cats promoted from the Rookie list , not sure if he will be of any relevance though ?

    Moosehead · 19/03/2018 at 13:32

    Just before the first game, Enormous relevance. Thanks for the tip-off Mr. B.

    Post_MaSloane · 19/03/2018 at 13:36

    He had one amazing quarter against the bombers, seems to run a bit on confidence. I like him, wasn't expecting to see him play for a while though

      Derek · 19/03/2018 at 14:12

      i Liked what he did in JLT2. Good size and runs well.

      DPP I like a lot

    Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:52

    Fantastic news for Cat fans. Always big wraps on the lad.

Maverick · 19/03/2018 at 13:23

How does everyone feel about lambert this year to take it to the next level? Looks to be able to find the pill, a tackling machine, knows where the goals are and should see some midfield time… worth the consideration or better options around his price? (470k)

    pod · 19/03/2018 at 14:37

    I like him for what you said, still deciding on inclusion at that price.

    neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 18:12

    Had him from dot

dontblushbaby · 19/03/2018 at 13:29

Interesting to see the AFL Captains picked P.Dow to win the Rising Star, too exy for me @ 193k

Shake_n_Bake_ · 19/03/2018 at 13:46

How deep are teams going in the Midfield? At the moment im 5-1-5 Coniglio being my mid priced. Really like GWS early draw so want to keep him but cant help thinking another rookie frees up alot of coin. What does the community think? How deep are your midfields??!!

    The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 13:53

    I'm only going five deep Shake, some good rookies in the middle this year. I hope.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 13:55

    I’m 6 deep, some good rookies but also great value and potential 10 top finishers that are priced well

      The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 14:59

      As a consequence you must be lighter in fwd or def then Wow?
      I've looked at having another premo in the mids but the cash it takes leaves me short elsewhere.

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 15:12

        Yeah lighter in defence but I think there are plenty of solid rookies who can make cash quickly and be upgrade to premos who are overpriced atm

          The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 15:29

          Laird, Hibberd, Yeo and Hurley all overpriced IMO.
          I won't start with more than one of them.
          Laird probably with that nice start to the season.

            Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 15:33

            That’s what I’m doing, and it’s how I have 6 premo mids

              DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 16:03

              Out of interest, if you’re going light in defence but only taking 1 of those 4, what other potentially top 8 premiums make up your backlines Wow and Ranger?

                The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 16:26

                It will prob be two of Witherden, Ryan and Lloyd and I'd be hoping for an av of 90 – 95.

                SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 16:26

                Most are jumping on Lloyd/savage. Then Sicily in lower bracket for $$$$

                  The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 16:29

                  Sicily smells of flog.

                    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 16:32

                    Correct but he's the general down back now. Good ball user, only concern is he's too easily rattled if tagged like lamb did last year.

                    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 19:12

                    Hawks love to have a loose man in defense, Gibbo did it well. i see Sicily taking over that role. He is the best overhead mark in the team and easily the longest kick.

                    if this works well, Sicily will be free to roam around in defense raking up the intercepts.

                    However….. teams will try and make him accountable and man up. Some teams tried it last year and the hawks at times even starting with a 4 man forward line and stacking defense with 8 to overcome other teams trying to "match up". I saw them try it a couple of times in the JLT as well.

                    If Sicily can remain alone in defense he will be supercoach gold. Somehow i don't think it will last.

                  DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 21:22

                  Don't like any of those options. Struggling to see any sub 480k defenders being top 8, but who knows

    Holty · 19/03/2018 at 15:34

    6-0-5 for me. Cripps is at m6

    Liam · 19/03/2018 at 16:40

    Coniglio m7, I don’t rate the mid rookies enough to start them ahead of value picks in the mid.
    It’s Hibberd and banfield V Parker and doedee and I see the second option winning comfortably hence the heavy midfield.

    redherringfc · 19/03/2018 at 17:16

    Yep 5-1-5. Fyfe at 5, Armitage at 6, but like you he may go to free up $$.

    Hopefully leaves only 3 Premiums to bring in, being Dusty, Kelly and Mitchell.

    neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 18:09

            in thx

    hedski · 19/03/2018 at 19:10

    5 with 3 rooks Shake (depending rook selection)

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:43

    Hey Shake, I'm going for 5- 1- 5
    I also like Bonner in defence, with Broadbent and Pittard out, he'll get a chance to score and make money.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:00

      I have Ryan at D3 l like Bonner to. Im sticking with Ryan thou. I think freo will love to get in his hands coming out of defence, he loves to kick the thing which is whats appealing.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:26

        Hoping he's gonna be a gun this year.

Any comments welcome gang, keen to hear your thoughts

    Jason · 19/03/2018 at 17:38

    What is your plan with ryder and r10 bye? I have him and trying to find out the best way around this scenario. Love the 2 premo defence with the better rookies down there

      Mike · 19/03/2018 at 20:28

      Don't really plan for the byes as we just play for league position not overall position. Just trying to find the right balance of rookies is hard this year!

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 17:46

    Take Fog out, won't play consecutive games unless long term injury to a crow. Should leave you with 160k and upgrade elsewhere

      Mike · 19/03/2018 at 20:27

      who should I put in instead of fog?

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:47

    Hey Mike, even though Fogarty is already better than that spud, Taylor Walker, he'll take his spot as soon as he comes back, I reckon the Crows should kick that spud to the scrapheap like Tippett.

Jack · 19/03/2018 at 14:01

thoughts on selecting Ollie Wines as a POD?

    pod · 19/03/2018 at 14:32

    Those friggin thighs are too big for my liking

    Tibor · 19/03/2018 at 14:49

    May as well have him on the maybe pile and wait until after his early bye

      Jack · 19/03/2018 at 15:40

      To start with though?

Thoughts please

    FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 14:23

    I'm tossing up the same idea of d3-6. Hard to way up cause it mean i can load up a bit more…

    Ballsy but seems more d rookies then elsewhere.

      murray · 19/03/2018 at 14:38

      thats because there are so many D rookies to choose from and so few in fwd line, have gone deep in mid as well

        David C · 20/03/2018 at 08:42

        Too deep in the midfield. Mid rooks score way better than forward rooks.

BadgerHoney7 · 19/03/2018 at 14:28

Money in bank: 9,200
DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray – Finlayson, Mihocek
Questions: If O'Shea gets named Round 1 I'll probably go with him, why, experience will charge more points over Naughton. Savage, risky, but I'll probably go with him unless I jump on Luke Ryan.
MID: Danger, Martin, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, JOM, Brayshaw, Kelly – Banfield, Barry, Holman
Questions: If Danger doesn't play Round 1, I don't care, I don't wanna go salvaging money mid season, JOM is a huge risk, and I know that, but once he gets confidence he'll be a star (played 5 games in 3 years, give him a break) and he showed that 1st quarter vs Carlton.
RUCK: Gawn, NicNat – Olango
Praying that NicNat plays Round 1, if not, I'll go to Nank.
FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Bell, Fritsch – Ahern, Ryan
Bell over Christensen is a risk atm but he was dominant during the JLT and has potential.
How to go to Nank; Bell down to Christensen – NicNat up to Nank

BundyBear · 19/03/2018 at 14:31

Is it really so important to start with Danger ?

    Steeeve · 19/03/2018 at 17:58

    For overall rank, yes

Willymack1234 · 19/03/2018 at 14:31

Final team (i think), thoughts would be welcomed

Fwd: Laird, Hibberd, Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Mirra)

Mid: Danger, Tmitch, Kelly, Merrett, Fyfe, Brodie, Brayshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

Ruck: Kreuzer, Gawn (Olango)

Fwd: Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Bell, Fritsch (Waterman, Ryan)

52k in the bank

    David C · 20/03/2018 at 08:47

    Good side, good structure. Waterman probably gets dropped when Kennedy comes back in so might want to find a better forward rook. Mirra didn't really get a go in the JLT, not good JS.

FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 14:33

Can I get some advise on current set up lads please:


aird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Murphy, Mirra)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Finlayson, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

Buddy, Walters, Smith, Tracca, Bell, Fritsch (Stephenson, Ryan)


Laird, Savage, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, (Murphy, Mirra)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cong, Banfield, Holman (Barry, Kelly, O'Connor)

Kreuz, Gawn (Olango)

Buddy, Billings, Walters, Smith, Trecca, Fritsch (Giles, Ryan)

    FearTheBeard · 19/03/2018 at 14:34

    Missing Defender is Naughton in Team B too lol.

      Hawks_2018 · 19/03/2018 at 15:21

      Team B is much better for def rooks

Reubs · 19/03/2018 at 14:33

Thanks for sharing BVC and little leprechan guy. Top work by you and the lads this pre-season. Bring on the footy!

    BarronVonCrow · 20/03/2018 at 21:11

    Thanks Reubs!

steve · 19/03/2018 at 15:12

Thoughts on the following team?

still undecided what to do with F5 as there is a limited amount of good rookies down there.

Also, unsure about Oliver, heard that he is racing against the clock to be fit for round 1. If i were too change him, wouldn't want anyone with the Round 14 Bye.

I have 50k in the bank to work with.

DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Lloyd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (L.Murphy, Keefe)

MID: Danger, Titich, Oliver, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield ( Kelly, Barry, Holman)

Ruck: KRUZ, Gawn (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Walters, Mclean, Stephenson, Fritish (Garlett, Ryan)

Any suggestions are welcomed.

    Hawks_2018 · 19/03/2018 at 15:18

    Great team all round especially condsidering you have gotten the big KRUZ. I think you should downgrade Lloyd to a def rookie I.e finlaysin or coffield and upgrade one forward rookie to a Fwd premo since the forward rookies are ….t

      Hawks_2018 · 19/03/2018 at 15:20

      I suggest getting Kelly for Oliver if he misses out on round one hopefully he won't but Melb won't take risks with there no. 1 mid if not 100%

      steve · 19/03/2018 at 18:39

      I have enough money for any forward but Buddy (already have heeney), who do i get?

        Willymack1234 · 19/03/2018 at 20:04


PDAP · 19/03/2018 at 15:21

I really like your team Barron. Of course you will trade well which someone (Pieman?) explained is – paramount.
I too, have Sicily in my fwd line but at this stage I do not have a D/F in my defence because I do not fancy Keefe. Is Keefe any chance of getting a game at some stage. That question concerns me.
My very good team last year finished 1009th, but my starting team this year is different to last year due to a lack of DDP options.
In 2017, from first round, I had Nank in my ruck and Ryder in my fwd line – a risky combo that luckily for me worked.
I had 4 very good mid/fwds in my fwd line and a solid mid/fwd on my mid bench. I had an ok D/M on my defensive bench and a good M/D on my mid bench. I didn’t have a D/F in my D or F line.
I didn’t get everything right as I failed to start with Oliver and Kelly – I wish I had, although I got them at their respective byes. Generally, I had only a handful of injuries so I probably should have finished better but improved 3,660 places from 2016.
Anyone else struggling with DDP’s?

    BarronVonCrow · 20/03/2018 at 21:12

    DPP is a nice bonus, but I certainly won't keep Keeffe if he's not named Round 1 just to keep it open.

      PDAP · 20/03/2018 at 23:55

      Ok. Thanks Barron.

Phildev · 19/03/2018 at 15:32

Solid Barron. I take your point with king but extra money on the field with olongo for me is always best.

Ps I have a few spots in a high ranked league if anyone that’s a top 10k finisher is interested in. Just messaged me

Cheers and good luck all

    BarronVonCrow · 20/03/2018 at 21:13

    Yea, it's a nice little bonus, but certainly not 100% needed and if you can/want to invest the cash elsewhere then I'd go for it.

Barry · 19/03/2018 at 16:17

Thoughts on zorko as a POD pick?

    BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 16:37

    Good pick

    Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 17:22

    I have him Barry as his ceiling is huge. Without Rocky there he'll take it upon himself to carry that team.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 17:23

James · 19/03/2018 at 16:22

Whats you say on Liam Duggan for WC

Suzie · 19/03/2018 at 16:50

Ablett or Zorko for M2? Justify your answers please. Cheers community.

    BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 16:55

    Zorko, purely based on durability.

      KSinny · 19/03/2018 at 16:56

      agreed, Even if Ablett doesn't get injured he will be rested some weeks to keep him good for the end of the season.

      Derek · 19/03/2018 at 18:35


    Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 16:56


      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 16:58

      Nice sabotaging Stark.

    redherringfc · 19/03/2018 at 17:08

    Zorko. Ablett will miss quite a few games throughout the season. I’ve heard it said that Geelong didn’t get Gary so he could play in March or April, They got him for September.

ILove PatrickCripps · 19/03/2018 at 16:55

Hey lads can we still swap players in and out of our side after the first game (rich v carl) has been played? Obviously we cant change players who have already played but unfortunately I won't see team line-ups till after Richmond v Carlton has started

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 17:02


    Lazza · 19/03/2018 at 22:31

    Now that you mention it.. As my team stands today I’ll only have 1 score after the first game in R1. Lots of flexibility to pick and choose.

KSinny · 19/03/2018 at 17:10

Guys do I get Bont, Kelly, Oliver, Crouch, Zorko, Sloane or Duncan as my M5?

    Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 17:13

    I'd goooooooo Oliver but closely followed by Kelly then Zorko

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 17:34

    well if you get Kelly as your M5 that means you have danger, dusty, Mitchell, ablett….

      Derek · 19/03/2018 at 18:35

      i'd go Oliver. ready for a big breakout year. bit worried about his knock to the knee last weekend.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:53

        Apparently, he was only allowed to run in straight lines at training. Chance of missing maybe?

      KSinny · 19/03/2018 at 19:45

      i have Titch, Dusty, Merret, Fyfe and Cogs and then whoever i get out of these guys

IntelDesign · 19/03/2018 at 17:16

    AuroraBorealis?! · 19/03/2018 at 18:58

    Sent you an email mate

Northerner · 19/03/2018 at 17:37

Thanks Barron. Just a suggestion. Waterman is unlikely to hold his spot after JJK returns. Of the WCE rookies I think Venables is the one they want to invest in and will get midfield minutes. I think he’ll improve after a few games at the level and will be a safer pick.

    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 18:33

    i really like Venables. Didn't play much JLT but apparently had a killer trail game last weekend. he is a pure midfielder as well, somthing that WCE are needing. he is in my team.

    BarronVonCrow · 20/03/2018 at 21:14

    Most rookies are a "placeholder" until the teams are announced and then reviewed, and I'll certainly consider that Northerner. Thanks!

Claire · 19/03/2018 at 17:45

Would it be silly to have Sicily as a forward only without having a DDP down back?

    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 18:31

    not really. It still works well when you need to trade a player. You might want to trade out a defender but want a forward player, you can use Sicily to make the trade work.

      Claire · 19/03/2018 at 19:46

      What? Really. How does that work? This game is too hard. Thanks Derek, you are so helpful but don’t bother to explain until I need to trade out Sis.

        SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:49

        When you trade a Def out, you then goto team and click S for substitute to put sicily into Defence and then choose your desired fwd. Can continue to do this each week until fully upgraded.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:51

        Yeah as 66 said Claire, it's a trading loophole to use other than the standard dual position player swap, try it out once the season starts and you'll figure it out, you can always reverse it afterwards.

          Derek · 19/03/2018 at 20:10

          that is why people load up their DPP players on the "outside" lines. when their mid rookies are ready for culling they can trade in a forward or defender and swing their DPP player into the guts to create the swing sets as the season goes.

          Claire · 19/03/2018 at 23:29

          Thanks everyone and Russty, that’s a good idea. I’ll try it our when/if that time comes.

    WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:45

    Not if he's your F5 or F6 Claire. But, having him in your forward line is like storing the mower fuel under the bbq.

      Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 20:01

      Having Sicily under the bbq is like having that 400K mower fuel that never becomes that 550K mower fuel you always wanted. Crap analogy by me but the point stands haha.

Steeeve · 19/03/2018 at 17:57

Anyone able to please share the Pantom's team?

I know a subscription isn't much but I've unsubscribed this year (from that, and Netflix, and the gym) and am taking the money I used to spend each week, and putting it aside for my family — just gone from 2 to 3.

The articles I can do without, but I'm just curious this one time about his team. Any help most appreciated!

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 18:17

    Hi Steve, he's only revealed his defence so far, midfield coming tomorrow apparently..whoopee! it's a big mystery lol

    Here's what he has so far….
    Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Bonner,Doedee, Murray–Finlayson and Murphy

      Moosehead · 19/03/2018 at 18:30

      Thanks Russty. I have also cut down on SC expenses which is getting out of hand and annoying many people because this great game that Jock helped is being seen as a money grab.
      Gee Bonner. I find that exciting. I wonder how many games he will get before Pittard returns. If he does ok he may make some cash before the byes?
      Looking forward to more news about The Phantom.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:17

        Hey Moose, Pittard's sposed to be out for 4 weeks and Broadbent is also out for 10 so I think he should have a spot and a chance to make some cash..or score well, hopefully both.

          Moosehead · 19/03/2018 at 19:42

          Thanks mate

    Liam · 19/03/2018 at 18:28

    He said he’s sacrificed the mids to go heavy in def and forwards.

      Thanks mate will give it a whirl

cameronmmfoskett · 19/03/2018 at 18:18

Dawson Simpson….Waiting for the second ruckman to Gawn to make themselves known, is he an option to placehold and save money?

Will he score points/play 22?

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:59

    Stay clear, simple

    DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 21:45

    Can't see them going with two ruckmen when Lobb returns which could be Round 1. Patton can easily pinch hit if needed

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:00

      Lobb won't return round 1, but could in round 3 or so. He's not fit enough yet.

        DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 22:16

        oh okay cheers russty, point still stands though

          Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:19

          Better off going for 2 premos Dac, Nicnat could be back this week too so Lycett's out.

            DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 22:32

            Yeah for me it'll be Goldy and Gawn to take up my ruck spots

              Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:37

              Nank's a good choice also.

        WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:58

        If you're going with a cheap ruck as an alternative to a fwd on field rookie he's the perfect option. He'll play his heart out because he knows it's his last chance. 2 games last year both over 90. First up is dogs with no Ruck =50+ hitouts to kelly etc, then grundy, Darcy Cameron=60+ hitouts, Sandi, StKilda 50+ hitouts.
        You only need 5-games from him to see if Nic Nat is OK then you can almost swap
        If he spuds and averages 60-70 he'll do better than your rookie f6 would have.

BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 18:28

It's being reported Dangerfield is going to play round 1.

If you took him out of your teams, just keep him out please!

    Don't worry I will keep him out

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:36

    Hey BB, I never thought he wouldn't play…he's a machine.

Nick · 19/03/2018 at 18:41

Any thoughts on my team would be greatly appreciated

Def- hibberd, Laird, saad, doedee, Finlayson, Murray ( Murphy, Naughton)

Midfield – danger, tmitch, dusty, Fyfe, Brodie, Brayshaw, kelly, Holman ( banfield, Fogarty, barry)

Ruck – Kreuzer, Gawn ( Cameron)

Fwd- Menegola, heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

I do have a large amount of rookies in the mid but hopfully won’t need to change my ruck or forward structure throughout the season

    Davo · 19/03/2018 at 19:39

    Nick, I really like your team because it is not copycatish. Good luck

hedski · 19/03/2018 at 18:48

Wow and 66, you have the same Avatar now Trev?

    BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 19:00

    This is comical

    AuroraBorealis?! · 19/03/2018 at 19:00

    Maybe it is the same guy?

    neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 19:02

    Said the same Hedskii but Trev is older unless that is some one else in the photo.No doubt though like TREV he knows his fantasy and gives good advice .Pity if wow and 66 are TREV just say it Lots of us respect what you did

      hedski · 19/03/2018 at 19:15

      Yeah was thinking the same Neil.
      I am really a white greyhound drinking a VB.
      (Its Steve Carrell – 40 y.o. virgin could explain a few things)
      FSC was a good site.

        BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 19:23

        FSC had brilliant content

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:26

        Damn hedski, and I thought you were just a really intelligent, well trained Greyhound!…but that is your pet Greyhound right?

          hedski · 19/03/2018 at 19:52

          Yeah Russ, bout to walk him (with a few vbs of course).

            Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:55

            Just don't let him drive mate, he's probably over the limit after 2, being as skinny as he is lol

              hedski · 19/03/2018 at 20:46

              Takes him a sixpack to get rockin Russty.

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 19:27

        Not TREV fellas, and defiantly not the same guy, who'd have time for that.
        Was just getting sick of seeing the same old none consecutive comments on peoples posts.
        The photo is of Michael Scott ft Worlds best boss mug. Might have to get worlds best SC mug made.
        Appreciate that some people are recognising the insight into the posts

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:32

      Thanks Neil, I appreciate the fact you can see the advice we give out is excellent. Its not from our hearts but from our brains! because we all know you don't make good SC decisions with your heart. Leads to a miserable long season.

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:21

    Id love to have the time to be the same person but logging in and out is such a chore! Fellas we are our own identity and we are here to help this community out seeing as the old boys have retired and it has become a little less enjoyable on here. Consistent SC players and have sound advice, take it or leave it!

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:29

    Doubt if Trev would have time to be swapping avatars every 2 minutes and why would he bother?
    Just some new blood in the site and I enjoy their comments.

      Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 19:41

      Appreciate it Russty. A lot of players would be better off with the advice given in my opinion. Feel like the JR crew aren't offering much in the way of help, and are releasing some ordinary teams

        neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 20:28

        funny how TREV was not a fan and as I said trev you always opened with 'NAH MATE 'Too much coincidence for mine but many on this site respected TREV and want him and the site back what ever trev wow (also one of his remember guys trev wow) we enjoy your views cheers I was about to do an article when it turned off

          Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 20:36

          Again I'm not Trev but glad you can see the similarities, people offering good support are few and far between on here

          hedski · 19/03/2018 at 20:49

          Yep, had two accounts there also. Dont see the point of all the fuggin around Neil but its his time to waste.

          Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:51

          Nah mate it's not Trev…hey I started with that too!…maybe it's me?…lol

            Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 21:02

            I’m not Trev!!!

    Loop · 20/03/2018 at 05:35

    I think that they're the same guy because –
    Wow always says defiantly instead of definitely
    66 said role with instead of roll with.
    Unless they went to the same school and arent as good with spelling and context as they are at SC.

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 07:54

      Geeez loop I guess we’re so busy giving feedback that we can’t spell check our posts. Thanks for reviewing. Maybe offer some SC feedback to this group next time.

BrownlowBoy · 19/03/2018 at 19:08

“His decision-making and skill execution, particularly by foot, is one of his real strengths."

VFL Senior Assistant Coach Gavin Brow

Ahern could be a go for round 1 then?

    Derek · 19/03/2018 at 19:26

    thats good enough for me, he's locked in.

Jocko · 19/03/2018 at 19:37

Rapt to read that. I look fwd to team selections to verify.

Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:45

Just saw on AFL tonight, Shannon Hurn reckons NicNat will play this weekend.

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:46

    I was informed this earlier today too Russty! Will make the Lycett goers abit weak at the knees

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:49

      Yeah 6 reckon there'll be some reshuffling now, Hurn said Nick will take a bit of time to get back to his best though.

        SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:52

        No doubt. I predict Nic Nat wont make Sydney or QLD trips, and only play 60-70% game time!

      The Moocher · 19/03/2018 at 20:02

      Hmm. Maybe Nit Nat after the byes IF he does ok. Those long interstate trips are worry. Pity there isn’t a cheap ruck to have as a reserve. Unfortunately Cameron is too risky at this stage.

Paul · 19/03/2018 at 19:45

Who is the best forward to get , with 530K?

Already have Heeney, Billings, Walters and Mclean aswell as fritish.

Trying to have a stacked forward line in order to avoid the unreliable forward rookies.

Cheers community

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 19:49

    Greene will go well, I'd have him ahead of billings.

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 19:51

      Also too you will have Heeney, Billings, Walters out in rd 14 bye….

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 19:52

    Dev Smith is supposed to be getting significant midfield time this year.

    hedski · 19/03/2018 at 19:54


    One Touch Wonder · 19/03/2018 at 20:05

    Robbie Gray. SHARK MOVE.

      neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 20:32

      welcome back need some humour

      Starkingdom · 19/03/2018 at 20:34

      When is the wonder?

      DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 21:48

      For all it's worth, if you're playing for leagues only Gray might not be the worst option of all time.

Barryyy · 19/03/2018 at 20:00

Thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated:

Laird, Hibberd, Savage, L. Ryan, Finlayson, Doedee (Murphy, Mihocek)

Danger, Dusty, Kelly, Fyfe, Coniglio, Libba, Banfield, Holman (Kelly, Barry, Constable)

Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Fridstch, Langdon (Ryan, Garlett)

One Touch Wonder · 19/03/2018 at 20:01

It is time to reveal my first SHARK MOVE of the year. First of many outstanding selections. This is someone NO-ONE is talking about, but someone who is the highest averaging forward over the last 4 years. 107.1 beautiful SuperCoach points average for the last 4 years. Has ONLY missed 5 games in the last 4 seasons, playing 22 games last year. His career average at the Adelaide Oval, his home ground is 112pts, where they play 8 of their last 12 games. He is in less than 10% of teams and by lockout he will be in a lot less teams. A dead set LOCK for top 6 forward this year. The fact that he misses round 1 will make him even more of a SHARK MOVE. I’m talking about, none other than the older brother of Sam, Robert Gray.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 20:08

    Amazing move mate, a bloke that is guaranteed to get you 2 donuts before the byes. Is going to have to score pretty well be near the top 6 forwards in the first 10 rounds. I think the fact he is owned by so few is a reflection of people not wanting to pay 500k+ for a player to sit on the bench.
    Will be in many more teams after his bye. Nice try

      One Touch Wonder · 19/03/2018 at 22:32

      He will miss round one, so I’ll get him week 2, won’t sit that much cash on bench. He has 1 bye like everyone else. I prefer to make a SHARK MOVE and have him for the whole season, not just half a year.

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 22:36

        Yeah you still have to field best 22 on his bye. Makes him a bit different

        David C · 20/03/2018 at 10:01

        Wasted trade. Who are you going to trade out?

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:24

    Hey OTW, was wondering, with all the brilliant shark moves you've made over the last few years, what's the highest rank you've ever achieved? the shark moves pay off or not?

      neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 22:43

      Russty you're stirring up a hornets nest lol

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:49

        It's ok Neil, I have a good Firewall lol 🙂

    Moonga · 19/03/2018 at 20:58

    You have made the occasional good shark move but I want him for 24 games.

      Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 22:00

      24 is ambitious

        WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:39

        Why not 25?
        Sorry it's an OCD thing

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:41

      Isn't the season long enough already? 🙂

    neil demons delight · 19/03/2018 at 22:38

    Bit of advice OTW don't mention that you finished 46k shhhh

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:42

      Seriously Neil?…so shall we just humour the shark move dude?

        One Touch Wonder · 19/03/2018 at 23:39

        I don’t play for rank. Couldn’t even tell you where I finished last year. I am very hard to beat in leagues though, cash leagues in particular.

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:43

      Don't get upset Neil. He cracked into top 50k and you just missed out!

    The Ranger · 19/03/2018 at 23:14

    Ah One Touch…I was wondering where you were.
    Good to see you're still around mate.
    Nice move.

    WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:36

    Beautiful effort One Touch. But, only the Shark that eats itself and poops wooden spoons would make that move.

Suzie · 19/03/2018 at 20:22

Best defender under 480k?

    leedy · 19/03/2018 at 22:44

    Ryan over Witherden. Value for money.

Richard Branson · 19/03/2018 at 20:26

Ablett,Cripps and Parish OR Zorko, Parker and Petracca

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:48

    Option 2 I think…very rich man.

Whitey · 19/03/2018 at 20:46

Will Viney coming back into the team be at the cost of Petracca's midfield time. Not sure when Viney will be back.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 20:51

    Worry about that when it happens and then trade him out.

      Moosehead · 19/03/2018 at 20:55


Jack · 19/03/2018 at 20:51

I tried to get into 66 league but it's already full!
He might talk himself up a bit, but he sure knows how to promote his league. Hopefully he makes another…

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 21:22

    Jack! Maybe next one buddy! If anyone else wants in show interest here and I can post the code!

      One Touch Wonder · 19/03/2018 at 23:45

      I’ll be in next one. Love a good League to show off my SHARK MOVES.

Michael · 19/03/2018 at 20:55

Parker and Zorko Or Shuey and Titchell

    BarronVonCrowJr · 19/03/2018 at 21:22

    What about Parker and Titch?

      Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 21:59

      Only problem would be the bye I'm guessing

        SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:11

        Well that's incorrect finnius. You don't have an AFL app? Should download one as it may also be useful to show you the statistics of your players if you wanted to check during matches. It also shows hawks have the first bye of the bye rounds. Parker n titch no probs together. Parker good POD

          Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 22:26

          My bad dunno how I didn't see that

Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 21:04

Looking for some opinions on my current team pending lineups

D: Laird, Mills, Naughton, Murray, Doedee, Finlayson (Mihocek, Murphy)

M: Martin, Titch, Kelly, Oliver, Merret, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

R: Kreuzer, Gawn (Olango)

F: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Tracca, Sicily, Fritsch (Ahern, Ryan)

Running extremely low on cash so any possible downgrades to solve this problem would be helpful. Not completely sold on Mills and Petracca so any arguments for or against them with any alternatives would be helpful. I am also considering chopping Brayshaw or Naughton for some extra cash. Any advice regarding my team in general is extremely appreciated.

Cheers community

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:22

    Yep, get Danger in there or you'll suffer from NonDangeritis 🙂
    Maybe could downgrade Kreuz to Nank, and upgrade Oliver to Danger, Oliver has a sore knee.

    Maybe consider Tracca or Smith for Christensen so you can strengthen your backline a bit.
    I'd go Mills to Ryan and a rookie for Bonner if you can afford it.
    Just suggestions, pay no heed if you don't rate it. 🙂

      Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 21:39

      Was hoping Danger wouldn't play as I was pretty happy with my team but I guess if he is fit I don't have much of a choice but to pick him. Am considering Tracca to Christensen, Martin to Danger and Mills to Ryan. However if Oliver is injured that could force me to change my team in other ways.

      I have pretty much locked in Kreuzer after he was almost confirmed to play round 1. Maybe I have a soft spot for him because he carried my teams rank last year. I think he will go back to back though.

      Thanks for the advice though definitely something for me to think over

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:27

      ^^^^^ What Russty said. Spot on!

        Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 23:03

        Do you think my plan is fine if Oliver plays?

          WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:53

          Dude you've got an 18 years old rookie as you D3 and a 90 ceiling D2.
          Ahern, and Barry unlikely for round 1 Murphy unlikely after Tex returns

            Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 01:59

            I will swap the rookies around come round selections so this is fine for now. Not going to get rid of Kreuzer so the cash will have to come elsewhere if I decide to upgrade my D3

    DacZawson · 19/03/2018 at 21:52

    My argument against Mills is purely given he's in your D2 position. If he turns out to average low 80's for the season you're in a huge spot of bother, given how hard it will be to upgrade not only him but 4 other rookies. I'd only give Mills a shot if you had a good foundation of 2 solid proven defenders and then Mills at D3 or 4

      Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 22:25

      Yeah fair point, I have Sicily who will likely end up in the back at some point. Might bring in O'Connor if he plays which should make it easier to upgrade to premos by exploiting DPP. I just think the premos in the backline are heavily overpriced and will drop at some point. If there were more options in the backline I probably wouldn't even start Laird as he is overpriced as well.

B-Mac · 19/03/2018 at 21:08

Just read that J Pittard is out for a while.

Is the erection now a reasonable pick?

    Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 21:59

    Yeah hopefully he gets up for rd 1…..

      Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:04

      Gets up from what?…he's talking about Bonner aka Boner, aka Erection 🙂

        Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 22:25

        ahhhhhhhhh – I still hope his erection gets up though :)))

          Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:27

          We always hope they come up Finn…although you probably don't have to worry about it lol.

EasyMoneySniper · 19/03/2018 at 21:12

Hey Lads,

Should i go parker and barry or coniglio and a elevated priced mid rookie???

    Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 21:16

    parker and barry if he is named

Fearthebeard · 19/03/2018 at 21:20

Oliver or

Billing, McLean, Greene???

    Defying_Madness · 19/03/2018 at 21:23

    Oliver has more upside and is cheaper so I would pick him. Not a fan of McLean and the bulldogs players in general due to there rotating so I would avoid him. Greene and Billings should both be good picks however I would go with Billings because he isn't a flog.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:30

    Kelly if Oliver doesn't get named round one because of his sore knee…Billings or Greene over McClean.

Adsy · 19/03/2018 at 21:40

Thoughts on a bit of a POD for the mids – Mitch Robinson. Before I get howled down… 406k, slightly above those who structure with a midpriced M5 or M6. Started 2017 with a 60 odd before getting into the 80s and 90s and then two tons in a row before injury struck. My question is given current price and a hopeful average of 90-100, could he come into consideration for a midprice spot which could turn into a fallen premo around bye time, if he makes it that far? For 10-15 points a game off premos per week, will that 150k be used better elsewhere? Won't see a tag, but no dickheads policy does come into play for me. Just a genuine enquiry for the community. Am I mad?

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:45

    He normally is the tag…not a bad choice but only in the fwd line, not the mids.

      Adsy · 19/03/2018 at 21:53

      Yeah I didn't even consider for the fwds, but yeah F4 certainly fits into the structures. I guess I considered the mids for his DPP given the lack of this season by the looks. A few too many concessions overall compared to some (price, output etc) but watch as I drop him out and he lights it up early!

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:57

        Stick Garlett in the mids Adsy, he's ready to go…dpp.

    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 21:46

    Yeah you’re mad to consider Robinson in the midfeild.

      Derek · 19/03/2018 at 22:44

      He was in my team pre JLT. But Devon looked better.

      Won’t be a top 10. Won’t make much cash. Will have a couple of tagging games.

Mick · 19/03/2018 at 21:44

There doesn't seem to be any love for OShea, any reason I've missed?

    Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 21:56

    Only played 1 quarter of footy in the JLT… not sure if he has a gig rd one

    Lazza · 19/03/2018 at 22:58

    There are cheaper DPP options that will make more $$.
    As a key back .. he has on field possession competition from Marchbank, Simpson and Plowman and Weitering.
    And Key Position players rarely score highly.

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:57


TheGreatBozza · 19/03/2018 at 21:48

I’d love some feedback, trying to go a bit different:

D – Laird, Savage, Ryan, Bonner, Murray, Doedee (Mihocek, Finlayson)
M – Danger, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Parker, Cogs, Kelly, Brayshaw (Holman, Banfield, Barry)
R – Gawn, Nank (Olango)
F – Walters, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

90k bank

Just put Danger back in. Only things I’m not sure on is Nank in the ruck, and whether to go Bonner down to a rook and go Parker to an uber premo (Titch, Kelly or Zerret)

Please pick my team apart!

    Grant Lewis · 19/03/2018 at 21:52

    I like it very much.

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 21:53

    Could always go Bonner to either of Naughton or Coffield..sticking him or Finlayson in the mids to create a swinger.
    Parker's probably worth keeping if he averages 100.

      Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 21:55

      I would want 110 out of him if I was picking him… not saying he is a bad pick but 100 doesn't cut it

      TheGreatBozza · 19/03/2018 at 22:29

      I’m bullish on Parker to return to his best, but also like Zorko as a POD. Can’t wait for lockout, I’m changing my team about 100 times.

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:30

        I change my team 100 times a day! lol

        Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:32

        Maybe take a punt on Whitfield then Bozza…he could do good things this year.

          SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:45

          Russty…..shhhhhhhh. Whitfield is a terrible selection.

            Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:46

            Yeh you're right, he sucks and his team is stupid. 🙂

            TheGreatBozza · 19/03/2018 at 22:47

            He’s tempting. The kid is an absolute jet. Just not 100% on having him and Coniglio, as well as wanting Kelly eventually. I think at his price point, Cogs is better than Whitfield

              Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:59

              Eeeeh remains to be seen mate, Giants have the round 13 bye so not an issue, and after the byes, you could have 10 of them and it wouldn't matter.
              Just a thought, round 14 is the real bugger for everyone to figure out.

                TheGreatBozza · 20/03/2018 at 13:04

                I've had a bit of a restructure. What do you think of these options:

                1. Parker & Kelly
                2. Whitfield & Dusty
                3. Parker & Dusty
                4. Drop Bonner to Naughton, roll with Dusty & Kelly or Dusty & Titch

                Also considering Ryder or Grundy in the ruck instead of Nank. Can afford both with the options above.

                  Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 02:24

                  Hi Boz…Is it possible to go Kelly and Titch and Nank?…they're my preferred options, Ryder round 10 bye, Dusty always has a slack patch, can pick him up cheaper, Grundy will be sharing duties with Cox.

                    TheGreatBozza · 21/03/2018 at 13:12

                    That’s definitely an option. Could roll with a midfield of Danger, Kelly, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs and Nank ruck

Connor · 19/03/2018 at 21:51

Any draft leagues???

WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:05

Wow Barron!
That's some backline.

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:20


    Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 22:22

    Nice name mate

      WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:41

      Thanks dude but why'd you try to copy it?

        Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 22:44

        Had no idea you existed

    WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:24

    They're all great rookies but mate, 3 on field with a couple of touch-n-go's on the pine.
    Also Sicily got shut down, after starting very well, by Jed Lamb. He was on fire and baa baa put him out. He'll never be a keeper, will miss games and can really spud it up. McCartin Christensen or Bell are better options mate and use the extra cash to turn garlett into the other Brayshaw to swing with finlayson. Just in case any of your mid rooks are only 60-70 and those def rooks get dropped. Plus McGovern will break

      SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:33

      Trev! Pipe down mate. Clear as day you've got no idea what your on about because basically every team posted on here have 3 Def rookies because it's the strongest line for rooks and it's the way to go so the mids are strong!

      Nice try at trolling though bud!

        WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 22:44

        Don't shoot the messenger mate. No way was that trolling. You have no idea of my relationship with Barron and as such your response was the definition of trolling.
        Lek, Patch, Barron, this is what happens without Jock and Higgo everybody posts teams with 3 rookies on field in the backline and thinks that its a good strategy.

          SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:52

          I'll let you in on a secret. Each year is different. Same formula won't take you the whole way each year.

            WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 23:51

            Here's a bigger secret. rookies from D4-8 will kill your chances of winning anything other than leagues

          Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 22:53

          What’s your suggestions on backline setup then?

            WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 23:52

            Not tonight I don't like you atmo

              WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:06

              Hahaha If I had a $ for everytime that's been said to me I wouldn't need to win supercoach

            WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:27

            Sorry Wow I had you confused with the overtly confronting gentleman.
            I actually posted one of the options for Barron to cover his rookie backline that still enabled him to have 5 defensive rookies but only 2 on field. There are a multitude of options

              Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 08:22

              You think Melb Brayshaw is a valid pick?

      Sc_Wow · 19/03/2018 at 22:33

      I don’t know how Bell is an option at all if your worries about players spudding it up and missing games. He scores poorly for the lions and won’t be in the best 22 soon. His def rookies are solid, McGovern pick is risky and not one id make

        SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:38

        SC_wow your post doesn't make sense, Bell,, McCartin and Christensen are spuds!

        Stop being ridiculously soft and rip into him. He stole your name!

          Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:44

          I wouldn't pick Bell if you put a gun to my head, but Christo and Paddy could do something this year, have to see how he goes before I'd pick Paddy though.

            WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:18

            I reckon Bell can get 70+ easily Russty and don't see any forward rookies that I can trust for 60. In 2015 Bell ave 90 from 22-games with 8 scores 100+ five of them 110+ included 2×143.
            Since then minor injuries and transitional form have limited his games 20 in 2 years. I think that his JLT form showed that he is the best physically equipped player to replace rocky's pre-ribs injury 'presence' and the Lions alternatives aren't yet fit.
            He'll score well enough to increase in price enough to get my fence.

              Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 08:24

              His role will look a lot different once mathers and beams are back, I see him floating around the hf and picking up 50’s leaving you with rookie like scores and generating no $$

                WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 10:05

                My glass is half full yours is half empty

                  Good work mate. Fill yourself with positive thoughts! Doesn't mean you'll get the biscuits.

        I was posting an opinion with a structured alternative just because you don't agree is no need to attack me mate. Pull your head in fool.

          Yeah and I was pointing out how one of your options was flawed. Where is the attack?

            SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 22:54

            Sounds like Trev knows all. You won't see trevs team reveal anytime soon guys. Let alone positive and constructive advice.

      It's looking a bit Jackson Pollack at the moment Neil. How's yours?

        Derek · 19/03/2018 at 23:51

        Hi Trev. The bunnies are in trouble mate, might need your help because Cyril is starting to look a good option.

          Russty_ · 20/03/2018 at 00:02

          Don't do it again Derek hahah, his legs are made of spaghetti.

          I hope you're sharing whatever it is that's making Cyril look attractive Derek. I'd prefer Daisy and not Neils Daisy

            she gets a gig at Collingwood every day feels at home with the girls there

        neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 00:57

        good to hear from you son Agree with Bell 80's tops which is good J S ok so he is F5 Still like my call on MELKSHAM mainly thru role change R22 -23 x JLT 1/2 as a fwd has been amazing.Just to many flogs but both are in ATM. Ryan is appealing but to accommodate this NANK is in . IMHO Parker and Whitfield are gold I too do not show my team since it was replicated two years back even though I trade better than most . Good luck mate

          WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 01:09

          Bugga. I forgot about Melksham. Aaarrgghh here we go again

Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 22:19

If Oliver misses, I am tossing up who to pick as my final midfielder out of Cripps, Zorko and Zerrett.

Cripps is a jet, however isn't fully proven as to having a 110+ average and so it is a pick that has some element of risk. I had Zerrett last year, and his low ceiling was underwhelming for me. If I was going to pick him I would want to know that he was going to bump up his average by 2-3 by pushing that ceiling to 150ish, 160. Zorko is an absolute weapon, however his propensity for a 50 odd has me a little apprehensive, especially with the extra pressure this year without a Rockliff.

Obviously if Oliver gets up for rd one then he is a lock for me, however who out of these boys would you picking community? They all have their downsides and I'm not sold on any of them at this stage, but they are the most likely to be uber premium mids with that preferential bye come seasons end.

    Wally Brando · 19/03/2018 at 23:36

    I'd go Zerrett, for consistency, despite lower ceiling he still goes 120+ more often than he's given credit for, also has 3:1 free kick for/against ratio.

    WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:43

    Do you need a consistent no-risk midfield keeper who'll play 22-games to complete your supercoach team?
    Well come on down to our "Five110's = Two 150's + 2 80's and a 90" reliable midfield keeper yard and kick the tyres on the red and black one.

    neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 01:01

    put oliver on the pine Everyone was doing it for danger but if you must change m crouch or zerrett best options

    Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 01:16

    I'm just going to put Oliver on the bench if he misses,just like Neil said.If you have to get someone,I'd go for either Crouch,Merrett or Bont.

    Russty_ · 20/03/2018 at 01:56

    Hey Finn, I just swapped Oliver to Kelly just in case, can get Red later. not a bad deal I think.

Billy the Kid · 19/03/2018 at 22:49

Looking for some criticism community! I've changed my team and structure a million times, because I can never be happy with my midfield and defense after I take a loot at my forward line. Team version 5632 is below. Please feel free to tear it apart!

D – Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Murphy)
M – Titch, Kelly, Zerrett, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Banfield, T. Kelly (Finlayson, Barry, Holman)
R – Gawn, Nank (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Christensen (Fritsch, Ryan)

Here's some of my thinking so you don't think I'm absolutely crazy.
84k left, hoping to use that to upgrade Coniglio to Danger ASAP, just praying Danger drops a little and Coniglio increases.
Gone 3 on-field midfield rookies because the top 6 mids are too hard to pick, and this is where the best rookies are imo.
Sicily is a flog but what other option do we have. Cheap, scored well on the back end of last year, and can swing him back using Keefe.
Hoping Nank's tank can hold out 'till the byes then upgrade him to Kreuzer who will hopefully drop while Nank rises.
Forwards is just madness. I cringe looking at Fritsch being my onfield rookie, because he's the only rookie I'd accept for cover if someone goes down and I don't want to use a trade. Hopefully Christensen will go up a little and be an easy upgrade option..

Now you have my invitation: tear me apart community. I'll appreciate it all!

PS. Also looking for more leagues to join if anyone's looking for coaches!

    SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 23:00

    Ok stop right there. Re structure and get danger in. He's playing so no point burning 2 trades "asap" on him when you can start him as he WILL play.

    I count onlly 10 genuine keepers in your team maximum. try and get rid of some mid pricers for decent rooks and upgrade to a few more certain keepers. You will struggle to acquire enough cash generation with those awkward prices blokes especially as a few WILL fail.

    No other advice needed. 66 on the job. Get it done!

    WoW_Trevor · 19/03/2018 at 23:42

    Nice version Billy I had Savage for a long time because his JLT form was so impressive. But, the Saints got Savage for his role in 2014 since then he's ave'd 69,73,82,87 last year off 12-games 5 below 80. With the outs at StKilda he has every reason to be the breakout defender but, the saints keep forgetting that rest of their defenders are pretty ordinary ie' "It's hard to soar like an Eagle when you're surrounded by Turkeys". I read an argument against him somewhere that convinced me to axe him, can't remember where might have been here.
    IMO Naughton has the best JS for the first 5+ games followed by Murray and I'm not convinced Doedee will produce enough for a SC D6 or a Crows best 22. Murphy may be named while Tex is out but unlikely to play after 2nd week, Fogarty would have priority.

    M1-4 is great but with 3 on field rookies in defense you need 6 premium midfielders

    Wow powerful forward line but, since 2009 Walters has aved over 80 3-times, last year was his best. he only averaged 11-games per year since 2009; a bit Risky when you look at the rest of your risks don't you think.

    Sicily was shut down easily by Jed Lamb in JLT2 and every opposition club will know exactly how it was done. Combine that with his low respect for the rules of the game and his attraction to hitiing people who are looking somewhere else and you get missed games. Unless the Hawks let him pull a couple of cones before the game and at each break he's going to be rubbed out. He wont be a top 10 FWD or Def and will make bugger all cash so why bother?

Finnius · 19/03/2018 at 22:49

Banfield and Brayshaw have both been given the nod for this weekend according to the Freo website

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 22:53

    And then they'll probably both be dropped round 2, knowing that flogass coach Lyon, who destroyed StKilda before he bailed…no bitterness here lol

      Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:57

      Still locking them both in though………….

        Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 02:20

        Yeah me too 🙂

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 02:38

    Thanks for the heads up Finn 🙂

KSinny · 19/03/2018 at 23:14

Kelly or zerret (already have Cogs)

    Russty_ · 19/03/2018 at 23:19

    Kelly, round 13 bye, no probs.

SC_Sixty6 · 19/03/2018 at 23:19

Food for thought. Picken is out indefinitely with so many concussions. The role for McLean hopefully not tainted by this.

    WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 00:49

    Hopefully that and other injuries at the dogs means a chance for Ed Richards and a further increase in output for Crozier

    Russty_ · 20/03/2018 at 01:57

    Hey Sandy just keep posting it until it's full, better to have 18 in there.

      Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 02:12

      Have to agree with that Russty, 8 places left now, I hadn't checked it for a few days,so you never know.

        Russty_ · 20/03/2018 at 02:15

        Maybe chuck invites in all the latest current should fill up in no time. 🙂

          Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 02:30

          Will do,just posted on the podcast,that worked,only two places left.

Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 02:18

What are people doing with Danger and Oliver,I have both,Danger has been in and out of my team for the last week,now with Oliver in doubt,not sure what to do.

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 02:23

    I am thinking of starting both if they both play. Really depends on some rookie selections as well

    Russty_ · 20/03/2018 at 02:24

    Hey Sandy, I'm keeping Danger in there, and I swapped Oliver to Kelly just to be safe, hopefully I can pick him up down the track a bit.

      Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 02:39

      If I decide to trade them out,I'll probably be looking at Bont&Coniglio.

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:56

    ditch em both if you have doubt, just have cash in the bank to upgrade some prick who fails to show up to season 2018.

    redherringfc · 20/03/2018 at 20:54

    Danger is in my team, no matter what. If he misses round 1 and you don’t have him you either waste an early trade or you miss his points for many weeks.

    As soon as I saw Oliver in doubt I traded him to Zorko.

Gord29 · 20/03/2018 at 04:13

Hi community would love your thoughts, currently have high priced rookies in but subject to change when teams come out

Laird, Savage, Sicily, Coffield, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Finlayson)

Danger, kelly, Zorko,Crouch, Fyfe, Brayshaw, LDU, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

Gawn, Lycett (Cameron)

Heeney, Billings, Smith, Petracca, Lobb, Ryan (Gartlett, Frisch)

173,700 left

Feedback appricatted

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:55

    That backline is shaky in my opinion, but I suppose it's where the money is. You could be looking at only 300 points from that line on a bad week though. Sure it's worst case but it's a reality.

      Gord29 · 20/03/2018 at 20:46

      i know I'm just struggling to justify spending a lot down there

    redherringfc · 20/03/2018 at 20:59

    Can you afford Lycett to Nicnat? If you’re going to gamble on Lycett you may as well go the whole hog and at least have the possibility of a true premium.

KKP · 20/03/2018 at 07:05

Is Nic Nat worth the risk if picked???

    BadgerHoney7 · 20/03/2018 at 07:47

    I think so, his scoring potential is through the roof and if he reaches those heights, he could be a slight POD, especially because people are veering away from him. Hurn said hes playing Round 1 yesterday also.

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:53

    Nah not really, Better off using a trade on him if he is actually fit and after you've SEEN him perform and play a whole game. Otherwise it's all hear-say………

    He's not cheap enough as it is to take the risk.

Rick Grimes · 20/03/2018 at 08:25

Danger only in 22% of teams. He'll play first round. Shaping as a POD if stays this way.

In other news, Crouch, Zorko or Merrett. Can't decide.

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 09:21

    Crouch personally given Sloane will always take the tag

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 09:31

      Set to get more game time and avg most points per min in the stacked crows mid during the jtl. Solid pick

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 20:02


Holty · 20/03/2018 at 09:45

Not good community. Based on Adelaide radio today, there will be no Doedee and Fogarty playing r1.

    Captain Risky · 20/03/2018 at 10:06

    Not overly surprised by that. Unfortunately..

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/03/2018 at 10:09

    I thought with Tex ruled out, Fogarty was a chance even thou l dont have him in my side.

      SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 10:14

      Murphy will play. Small fwd. Fog will be great but later down the track. Doedee disappointing

    SW Roosters XXX · 20/03/2018 at 10:53

    I'm hearing different…..
    Walker definite out – means Fogarty a massive chance and Doedee is all but locked in for Round 1…

      Holty · 20/03/2018 at 11:45

      It came from Tex on triple m. People forget that Adelaide are deep in their forward line and Doedee im surprised with but Cheney is now back so do you pick a first gamer or a proven solid defender in Cheney?

      Holty · 20/03/2018 at 11:55

      But i do hope ir right rooster as doedee is still sitting in my side. Still a few days to go and tex might of just been saying it not to give much away about team selection. I guess we will find out soon enough

        Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:56

        Yeah Tex is just trying to cause SC mayhem

rosy · 20/03/2018 at 10:01

Danger's price will almost certainly drop. To maintain a value near $700k, he'd have to average 140+. Not to mention, he now has the single greatest SC point machine we've ever seen running around with him. I'm not saying GAJ will be the beast he once was but he will certainly collect a fair chunk of Danger's points.

Danger will still be amongst the top 3 SC players in the comp but I'm tipping Danger's price to come down to about $650k within the first 4-6 rounds. The trick is to have a good stepping stone player ready to make that trade when it matters. Many people are thinking JOM. Possibly Armitage?

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 11:59

    Danger is not about the price. Nearly all premos will drop in price. People select Danger to put the big fat C on him. He hardly ever fails and that is massive for reassurance when selecting ur captain.

    SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 12:39

    Glad you've convinced yourself that your starting without him. Have fun in the leagues because overall your not even a chance.

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:54

      What’s the point rosy?
      Danger misses one round max, start a Brayshaw or Brodie who could score as much as jom or Armo.
      Then play danger round 2, I guarantee he scores a lot more than both Armo and Jom in the first 4-6 rounds, you’re putting yourself behind the 8 ball and wasting trades.
      All in the hope danger drops 100k? Makes sense….

    GloryDays90 · 20/03/2018 at 14:36

    You are Dreaming 😂

    rosy · 26/04/2018 at 10:26

    Well well well. Here we are at the end of round 5 and Danger is $669k (breakeven of 150+) and ranked 61st on the total points list. 41st out of the MIDs. At this stage there are literally 40 better options in terms of price/output. Cheers.

Andrew · 20/03/2018 at 10:45

Anyone still got spots avaliable for cash leagues?

FearTheBeard · 20/03/2018 at 10:45

Fella's can I get some overall thoughts on the current squad bloody sick of playing with it 😉

Laird, Savage, Ryan, Doedee (if not named can upgrade to Naughton/O'Shea), Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek)

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Banfield, Holman (Garlett, Kelly, Barry)

Kreuz, Gawn (Cameron)

Buddy, Billings, Walters, Smith, Tracca, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

My only real question is should I be cutting 2 rookies down to not playing cheapies e.g Cameron & Barry/Ryan to 102k players so I can upgrade Coniglio to Oliver?

My logic is at present let Coniglio go up in cash, let the rookies fatten up and let Oliver clear my head on his knee and pull the trigger then?

FearTheBeard · 20/03/2018 at 10:48

Or do I break my heart and cut my beloved Dusty and Coniglio for Kelly & Oliver straight up?

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 20:04

    Heck no.

Gold · 20/03/2018 at 11:04

Any news on Oliver?

Tom Dickson · 20/03/2018 at 11:10

Really need your Thoughts? Tough year this year but I love a trusty POD
Laird. Hibb, Rampe, Naughton, doedee, Murray (FInlayson, MIhocek)

Titch. Kelly. Fyffe Treloar Parker cognilio. Brodie Brayshaw (Holman kelly. banfield)

Gawn Nank (Cameron)

Billings. Smith. Petrarca Walters christenson Fritsch (ryan. Narrier)

    ProTravo · 20/03/2018 at 15:16

    Not bad. I think there are better options than Rampe and more value in rookies rather than taking a punt on Cristensen.

Knightstuff · 20/03/2018 at 12:08

Wondering if anyone took A.Witherden down back?

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 12:35

    There will still be some but i think jlt would of scared many off

      Knightstuff · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

      k thanks mate

        The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 12:47

        Locked in at D3 for me.

          Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:50

          Had him before jtl. Didn’t show me enough, likes of Ryan showed more. Could be a good pod though

dpb · 20/03/2018 at 12:21

Neale or Fyfe?

    SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 12:23

    You shouldn't be playing SC. Your wasting your time if your asking such stupid questions!

    Danners · 20/03/2018 at 12:47

    Depends whether you want a POD or not, Fyfe if not

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:51

      The question should be Fyfe and Neale or just Fyfe

      SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 12:54

      Everyone wants a POD, but as Wow hit the nail on the head. Everyone should have fyfe. He will make a run for the brownlow this year. Already got money on him. Looks ubtea this year.

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 13:49

    Hi dpb.
    If you are tossing up between the 2 because you think Neale could average as much as Fyfe, select both.

Sandyf62 · 20/03/2018 at 12:22

Only two places left in 'Assassins Creed' code 896233

    BockChoy · 20/03/2018 at 12:38

    Just grabbed the last one!

Nerd Balls · 20/03/2018 at 12:32

Would love everyone or anyones input on the line mup im currently running:

Feel free to tear it to shreads:

DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Savage, Doedee, Murry, Finlaysion (Keeffe, Grathwaite)

MID: Danger, Dusty, Twitch, J Kelly, M crouch, Fyfe, A.brayshaw, T Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

RUC: Gawn, Lycett

FWD: Heeney, Walters, D smith, Sicily, Fritch, L ryan (Waterman, Giles-Langdon)

Cheers fellas

    ProTravo · 20/03/2018 at 15:12

    I like it! Trying to work out how you could afford that midfield.

    Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 20:12

    I love when someone asks to be torn to shreds. Where do i start with this team of outside flogs.

    Backline falls into a crap heap after Laird and Hibberd.

    You've got all the MTV superstars in the midfield. (nah the mid is good….but kelly and m crouch are pricey………)

    Lycett………..get stuffed haha

    Your forward line is full of easy ball getting fairies mate. (I hope people are seeing the humour in this and don't get offended I'm fully aware of how structures and certain positions play the ball lol)

    Ive got Walters myself, a bit worried about Heeney being so high ownership. Devon Smith not hugely convinced but he is a gun player but not sure if the chemistry etc is there yet. Sicily makes my flogometer highly active and seeing his name mentioned more and more makes it redline.

Mumu · 20/03/2018 at 13:08

With Doedee a possible non selection, is it worthwhile going with Cheney? At $241 he is an experienced player off half back but
1. What’s his job security like and
2. With his history of averaging 60-70, can he make enough money in X weeks to upgrade him.
I suppose a crystal ball would help.

    SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 13:15

    No. Find another rookie.

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 13:16

      Bonner has more upside at a similar price

        Mumu · 20/03/2018 at 16:38

        But I have The Erection as well. What's his problem? Scoring? – I am talking about Cheney!

          Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:51

          Forget those dodgy pricers mate, they are the beginning to the end.

    Derek · 20/03/2018 at 16:49

    save that question for the PANIC ROOM

    Maverick · 20/03/2018 at 18:26

    Doedee is a confirmed starter. Lock him in

      Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:26

      Yep and drop the upward facing bellend, that price is dodgy.

Dans Donkeys · 20/03/2018 at 16:58

Good afternoon Peeps! Not long now!

After 2 days of tweaking, twerking, and twitching, have put the following team together. Would love some feedback.
Not going for the $50k – just want to smash a few muppets in my league.

Laird, Howe, L.Ryan, Naughton, Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek)

Danger, Mitchell, Oliver, Zorko, Fyfe, Whitfield, Banfield, Holman (O'Connor, Garlett, Kelly)

Big Maxxy & Nank the Tank. (Olango for loop)

Heeney, Billings, D.Smith, Petracca, Giles-Langdon, Fritsch (Keefe, Ryan)

Went Zorko in the mids over crouch/kelly as he is a beast, and could possibly double tonne it up.

Tossing up downgrading Whitfield to Cogs, but like the POD at the moment, and upgrading Ryan to Hurley in Defence.
Doede not getting a gig in defence (according to Texarse) is making me think of the above, and thinking of reasons to leave out Sicily, as he is a flog.

$57k left in bank. $700 if I upgrade Ryan, and downgrade Whitfield.

Was going to play Brayshaw, but having 2 freo rookies onfield was giving me nightmares.

Thoughts/feedback appreciated – thanks all!

Jarrod · 20/03/2018 at 18:31

Hey i was wondering if you guys could rate my team and maybe some criticism/advice of where i can improve it.

D: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Finlayson, Murray (Coffield, Doedee).

M: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Crouch, Merrett, Fyfe, Armitage, Banfield, Kelly (Holman, O'Connor, Barry).

R: Martin, Gawn (Cameron).

F: Heeney, Dahlhaus, Smith, Petracca, Fogarty, Fritsch (Ryan, Waterman).

12k left in the bank. Thanks in advance 🙂

    Whitey · 20/03/2018 at 21:06

    Solid side, only real weakness I can see is your F5 (Fogart) but your not alone there. Maybe Armitage to a rookie and upgrade to one of the Brisbane boys.

Whatyasmokin · 20/03/2018 at 19:49

Yep I'M BACK! And my SHARK MOVE is……………..No I don't do that bit. Sorry One touch…………it's all yours. But no Robbie Gray till after his bye.

But I'll put a few ideas out there………

Forget your savage burn men may as well get a boat to sicily and not come back.

It's dangerous not starting with the best, but will he be rested up forward! Is he coming back earlier than is necessary due to big games in round one and two? Will he be battered and beaten and not even fly to Perth for round 3? The MAAAAAADNESS that is spouting forth from these fingers these are not mine I am possessed that is certain.

I envision the magnificent as M1. I envision at least two of Arma/Omeara/Fox/Brayshaw in the mid ranks.

There is no money in rucks friends and foes. Take this from a die hard Nankiwitts supporter last year. Just Lock in Mawn. Now kick the key and bend it into the lock better yet get a blow torch on it. Lock in something solid people. I had Simpson in there hahaha can u believe it. I've since cut the finger off that clicked him into my side. (no offence personally old mate dawson that finger was a bit gnarly anyway)

I'm seeing McCartins I'm seeing Hogans, but I'm not seeing traccas it's just not there.

Now i'm either smokin somethin and having divine supercoach intervention or I'm looking through a haze of smoke at my own team. Either way there's nothing but ideas to corrupt your good teams here. Cheers and good luck in 2018 guys and gals.

    Gord29 · 20/03/2018 at 20:50

    hahaha love it

Doc_1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:51

Lads, need some help.

1. Hurley (D1) and Bonner (D3) v savage (D2) and Mills (D3)
2. Tracca v Greene

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:05

    Bonner and mills are risky so I'll revert to Hurley vs Savage and take Hurley (and Boner combo)

Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 10:56

Garlett named no Oshea

Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 11:42

Couple quick ones for yas all …
1)What’s everyone’s thoughts on lambert? Is he set for a lot of midfield time or once prestias back he back to the fwd line? I don’t know a heap about tigers structure…
2) also whose more trustworthy of petracca n Sicily? I wanna downgrade one to either a bell/Dunkley/christenson to free up $$$..
3) and is the bonner worth a punt? All pre season I’ve wanted him but currently not in my side… but I think his prices at unders..

sc tragic · 21/03/2018 at 12:02

What is happening with the site. Where did the podcast go???

Stupid Coach · 21/03/2018 at 15:00

Greetings community.

My team is as follows;
B – Laird, Savage, Ryan, McGrath, Naughton, S Murray (Doedee, Flnlayson)
M – Danger, Kelly, Zorko, Neale, Bont, Conigilio, Coffield, Banfield (Holman, T Kelly, Barry)
R – Gawn, Nank, Olongo
F – Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Townsend, Fogarty, Ryan, (Giles Langdon and Fritsch)

Generally happy with the team, however, only leaves me with $37K in the bank. I also have question marks over Olongo and Giles Langdon) so would very much appreciate any comments and thoughts.

Carleton · 21/03/2018 at 15:34

Best team I've seen on this site, mate.

CorporateMan · 21/03/2018 at 20:17

Any thoughts on my current set up would be appreciated. 85k left

Laird, Hibberd, Angus Brayshaw, Naughton, Murray, Doedee (Finlayson, Mihocek)
Mitchell, Oliver, Merrett, Fyfe, Parker, Whitfield, Coniglio, Brayshaw (Barry, Kelly, Holman)
Ryder, Gawn (Olango)
Walters, McLean, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon (Keeffe, Garlett)

My other thoughts are upgrading Angus Brayshaw to Siciliy in the backline, and changing Parker to either Armitage or Angus Brayshaw in the mids. Would also have to trade Ryder to Nank in this scenario
