HERE IT IS, COMMUNITY!

It’s the final countdown, the last chance, the end of days. Preseason is just about over, and we’re about to kick into the real deal, and your homeboys Lek Doggy Dog and Patchy McPatchface are here to guide you through the last week of Supercoach.

We have a proper scour of the rookies, we flip-flop AGAIN on Patrick Dangerfield and Lek drinks far too many beers than can be advisable, especially for any children who may be listening.

HOWEVER, we debut a new segment from FoxFooty and the AFL 180 boys, and hear from the one and only PETER HIGGINBOTHAM who returns to us to offer one final point of difference up forward.

Throw your questions, teams and leagues into the comments – this will be one of the last times we gather round as a community before the fecal matter hits the proverbial when teams drop!

Remember you can find every single thing we’ve done in the pre-season – whether that’s sorting selections by teams, by JLT games, by positions – anything – on the drop down menus on the site.

So strap yourselves in, crank up the volume and hold onto your butts, ROUND ONE IS HERE!

Heres my team, its getting to close I'm panicking

DEFS- Laird, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (

    SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 11:11

    Ripping side there doggy. Best I've seen!!!!

      GoDoggies · 20/03/2018 at 11:21

      HAHA
      I'm panicking so much I cant even leave a comment

      DEFS- Laird, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Keeffe)

      MIDS- Danger, Mitchell Kelly Fyfe Parker Cripps Brayshaw (freo) banfield (Kelly, Holman barry)

      RUCKS- Ryder Gawn (Cameron)

      FWDS – Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Petracca Sicily Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

      Three main concerns, Danger, Ryder and Sicily
      I'm willing to cop the Danger Round 1 donut and the Ryder round 10 donut.
      but I'm considering downgrading Ryder to Nank, I could really use that cash to clean up the team
      Finally Sicily is he honestly worth the hype or is he to risky
      Sides going to change once rookies are named, with some downgrades and upgrades to rooks and premiums

        Matho · 20/03/2018 at 12:35

        What are you going to do about Ryder’s doughnut in round 10. Do you [email protected] a backup plan because Cameronrobably won’t be playing

          GoDoggies · 20/03/2018 at 14:30

          3 options
          1: willing to cop the donut
          2: Downgrade to Nank the Tank
          3: Cross my fingers and hope for a miracle ruckmen to play come round 10

          Liking option 1 the best

          Dovaas · 20/03/2018 at 23:08

          Why are coaches still talking about the PTA/GCS bye? It doesn't matter and have all that time to trade up before hand. Round 10… so what

            Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 00:42

            Probably because Having Ryder means you will cop a donut for him because round 10 you need 22 on the field, so you'd need a playing Ruck in R3 and who is that?
            The other 3 bye rounds you only get scored from the best 18 onfield.

              Tyruddanaut · 21/03/2018 at 06:36

              Think about it this way. You lose 100 during Round 10 but make it up when everyone else is copping donuts in the ruck R12-14

                Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 07:39

                You can field best 18 in rd12-14. My ruck is KRUUZE. Round 12 is his bye, and I know my lowest score will be pretty high in that round. Ryder won’t make it to match every ruck in the league

                David C · 21/03/2018 at 11:23

                Not if you trade in Ryder after his bye. And those other rounds are best 18, R10 is best 22 … big difference.

        Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 03:50

        It's supposed to be fun mate, don't worry too much about it, it's the journey that's most enjoyable, not the destination, for most of us, the destination is Shitsville lol

Andrew · 20/03/2018 at 11:13

Who The F are these guys? first time i have listened since last year….Wheres crouching, Jock and Peter?????

    Vnow · 20/03/2018 at 11:18

    gotta agree, nowhere near as entertaining..

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 05:09

      Give em a go…bugger off if you don't want to be here.

    BloodyFranklin · 20/03/2018 at 15:02

    Come on now Andrew, surely you aren't one of those twerkers who hits up jockreynolds.com a few days before the season starts, listens to the most recent podcast and tries to build a team off that?

    Things have changed bro, consider yourself lucky that there's any information on this years Supercoach season here. Because without "these guys", you'd have nothing.

      Lekdog · 23/03/2018 at 08:37

      I love this btw

    What cave have you been living in , in the last 4 months?

      Tyruddanaut · 21/03/2018 at 06:41

      I actually live in a cave, but go to an Internet cafe to compensate

        The Ranger · 21/03/2018 at 16:00

        You have an internet cafe near your cave?!

          WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 16:03

          What's an internet cafe? Is that from before mobile phones?

            Tyruddanaut · 22/03/2018 at 06:52

            Fun fact: the day after iPhones were invented (3/5/1485) the first Internet cafe was opened so that people could read the Torah on their new devices. Unfortunately people just downloaded Angry Birds leading to a decrease in Jewish population due to people being too busy trying to complete level 8

          Tyruddanaut · 21/03/2018 at 17:27

    Im having the same issue at my work where group joining isnt working via a code. What an i missing? Any tricks?

    Thanks.

      Tyruddanaut · 21/03/2018 at 06:42

      You have to make sure you are putting in a group code and not a league code. Open the group menu first

        Brendon · 21/03/2018 at 13:41

        I don’t even get an option to join a group.. will only let me create a group

          Holty · 21/03/2018 at 19:44

          Is ur team completed? I had the same problem until i had selected all 30 positions

DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:17

Just as a fun activity. I'm keen to see who people believe the Top 10 (Top 5 for rucks) players in each position will be, given that these lists likely decide the players people chose. Except for potentially the midfield (given the amount of players that could finish 108 plus), I personally believe all keepers that we start with should be finishing top 10.

Personally I see…

Laird, Hibberd, Hurley, Howe, Yeo, Houli, McGovern, Simpson, Tuohy and (maybe) Savage

Danger, Fyfe, Mitchell, Dusty, Kelly, Oliver, Crouch, Duncan, Neale, Merrett

Gawn, Kreuzer, Ryder, Goldstein, Martin

Heeney, Greene, Menegola, Franklin, Billings, Gray, Walters, Dixon, Wingard, Roughead

    TommyC99 · 20/03/2018 at 11:29

    I agree with most of that mate, although i'd probably swap Duncan out with Bont, feel like he will really bounce back strong

    Derek · 20/03/2018 at 11:44

    Total points? Average? 2nd half of year?

      DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:47

      Sorry I should've made that clear. I base it off average if I believe they can play over 20 games

    Matho · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

    Swap Jacobs for Goldy

    Dean · 20/03/2018 at 18:56

    I think its a fair call Re: The players you listed bar one.

    I see Wallis being a top 6 not top 10 forward. I have my doubts on Wingard & Roughy however being top 10 in the forward line.

    Why don't you see Wallis being a top 10 forward?

      Starkingdom · 21/03/2018 at 17:34

      Wallis can't stay on the park for a full season, that's enough for me to exclude him.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/03/2018 at 01:07

    Pretty solid.
    Touhy to llyod.
    Duncan to Pendles (I think there are plenty of others ahead of him as well, even his captain).
    Greene won't play 20 games, flog. Wingard out D.Smith in. If fit R.Lobb, but assuming he is not.

    Bells · 21/03/2018 at 14:09

    NicNat over Goldy?
    Outside the top 5 fwds is anyone's guess.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/03/2018 at 17:30

    Replace Touhy with Jones, Crouch with Zorko, Goldy with Nank, Roughy with Smith, Gray with Lobb and you have a team

      Defying_Madness · 21/03/2018 at 17:52

      He said it is based off average so Gray will make it easily

David · 20/03/2018 at 11:17

Hey guys this is my current team and wanted some feedback and advice! I have 13 players I’m hoping on keeping and 1 potential keep in Smith! I have 100k left over for last minute change or put towards early upgrade but all thoughts comments be greatly appreciated!! Thanks community

Laird, McGovern, Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Finalayson
(Doedee, Mirra)

Martin, Mitchell, Merrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Banfield, Kelly
(Brodie, Holman, Barry)

Gawn, Nankervis
(Olango)

Franklin, Heeney, Billings, Smith, Christensen, Rayner
(Fritsch, Ryan)

    BloodyFranklin · 21/03/2018 at 10:12

    Hey David, your team looks solid man. I have to be honest and say I'm not sold on the Christensen/Rayner picks, there is a hefty amount of coin invested in those two and I feel as though that coin would be better distributed elsewhere. If you are super-keen to have them in your line up, I would recommend only picking one of them.

    Good luck! ⛄️

      joe · 21/03/2018 at 12:31

      Christensen's averages: 66, 80, 93, 91, 70 (injury interrupted)

      That's worth the risk in a season with no guaranteed forward rookies.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/03/2018 at 11:22

Just quickly is Oliver a concern 🤔

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:24

    If he lines up Sunday then it should be fine, I doubt they risk a half fit young player in the first game of the season

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 11:26

    Been my lock all year, am I concerned? Slightly…fair to say we should have a backup plan for a late out situation

Ethan · 20/03/2018 at 11:23

THOUGHTS COMMUNITY ?
Good luck everyone this year!

Defenders-
Laird, Savage, Lloyd (Finlayson)
Naughton, O’Shea, Murray (Doedee)

Midfielders-
Mitchell, Martin, Zorko, Fyfe
Parker, Brayshaw, LDU, Banfield
(Kelly, Holman, Garlett)

Rucks-

Forwards-
Franklin, Heeney, Greene (Fritsch)
Smith, Christensen, Stephenson (keefe)

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 11:27

    Only slight change for me would be LDU to Brodie

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:49

      Stephenson also might score the best for his price. Start fritz

    SC_Sixty6 · 20/03/2018 at 11:48

    Can't see O'Shea getting a gig. Switch him to coffield.

GoDoggies · 20/03/2018 at 11:23

I'm panicking so much it's to close to many questions

DEFS- Laird, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Murphy, Keeffe)

MIDS- Danger, Mitchell Kelly Fyfe Parker Cripps Brayshaw (freo) banfield (Kelly, Holman barry)

RUCKS- Ryder Gawn (Cameron)

FWDS – Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Petracca Sicily Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

Three main concerns, Danger, Ryder and Sicily
I'm willing to cop the Danger Round 1 donut and the Ryder round 10 donut.
but I'm considering downgrading Ryder to Nank, I could really use that cash to clean up the team
Finally Sicily is he honestly worth the hype or is he to risky
Sides going to change once rookies are named, with some downgrades and upgrades to rooks and premiums

So should i downgrade Ryder for cash to clean up the team

Should i keep Sicily or is he not good enough/worth it should i downgrade him to dunkley or another mid pricer in either fwd or def and use the cash to clean up the team aswell

And some insight on danger and his return
Thanks for any feedback

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 11:28

    Sicily will out perform his price but will have weeks where he goes missing, better than any of those other 400K (and under) forward fwds imo

    I like the side

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:29

    Personally I think you should strengthen your defence, so if downgrading Ryder or Sicily allows you to upgrade a rookie to a premo in defence then I'd do it.

      GoDoggies · 20/03/2018 at 11:36

      I have $300 the downgrading of one of ryder or Sicily would give me enough for like Riley Bonner, Byrne, Corey Ellis, Brayshaw (Melbourne) a player for around 200-300k is it worth it?
      Say Ryder to Nank and then like Keeffe up to Bonner or Ellis
      ??
      Lek your a Carlton man, what are your thoughts on Byrne is he worth it 230k odd defender worth it?
      Or do I downgrade Ryder to Lycett and have a ton of cash to play with??

Bec · 20/03/2018 at 11:34

Hi community

This is my second season of supercoach and I have been asked to join my husbands league which he plays with his mates – i’m sure they think they will get an easy win against me

So I have done some research and came across this site and couldn’t believe how helpful the articles and comments have been

Can I please get some feedback on my team so I can hopefully beat my husband!

Laird, Hibberd, Mills, Naughton, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Keeffe

Dangerfield, Martin, Zorko, M.Crouch, Fyfe, A.Brayshaw, Brodie, Kelly, Banfield, Barry, Holman

Kreuzer, Gawn, Cameron

Heeney, Billing’s, D.Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Frisch, Langdon, Ryan

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:39

    Pretty good looking side, how much cash do you have left in the bank?

      Bec · 20/03/2018 at 11:57

      Thanks Only 2.5k in bank

    Derek · 20/03/2018 at 11:51

    Good team. Should go good. You will have a few problems in round 14 having a lot of your guns not playing, but that is just one week you might just take a loss.

    Good luck

      Bec · 20/03/2018 at 12:00

      Thanks Derek – I honestly didn’t consider the bye rounds
      Maybe Crouch to Merrett.?

        Derek · 20/03/2018 at 12:13

        By round 14 you should have a top 4 locked.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/03/2018 at 13:47

    Nice structure, l like it. But like Derek said definitely rd 14 is a problem.

Crime Stoppers · 20/03/2018 at 11:38

GONE MISSING = ROOKIE CHEAT SHEET, please call if found

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 12:27

    Jump on SC and sort by ownership, that'll give you most of your rookies 🙂

    Bells · 21/03/2018 at 13:53

    Good. It's better those that have done some research and spent some time get rewarded with potentially better rookies than those that turn up and just plug in 8 rookies off the CHEAT sheet IMHO.

Cheers!

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:45

    I think you gotta pick one of Bell or Christensen, rather than both

      DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:45

      Bell higher potential but Christensen might have a bit more job security

      Sam · 20/03/2018 at 11:50

      Why do you say that? Both seem underpriced with good JS to me. I only have 20k in the bank so wouldn't be able to upgrade either and both would be better than downgrading to a rookie (wouldn't know what to do with the 150k then anyway)

        DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 11:57

        If you're keen on both then by all means go ahead, but I can see them both playing a half-forward role once Zorko and Beams play together, so don't believe both can rotate as a relief midfielder. So while both may score slightly better than a rookie as pure half forwards, I don't see the 150k extra cash as being worth a few extra points.

        Interested to see what other people think though.

          Dean · 20/03/2018 at 19:34

          DacZawson its a really toughy year in the forward line this season and whats more concerning is almost every year the "Premo" forwards under preform, it happens year after year and the same can be said in defence.

          That being said the vast majority of mid priced players fail every season irespective of their positions.
          However with the lack of rookie depth in our forward lines this season I dont see it being an issue having players such as Christensen & Bell if a person feels its right.

          I personally have Sicily and Christensen in my side, if history is anything to go by, there is every chance that Sicily could end up averaging less then Bell. It really is a personal thing, however EVERYONE needs to be aware of mid-priced madness and I have seen a TON of people on here who have been playing the game for years classing mid priced players as premiums and OR keepers.
          This should NEVER be done EVER because chances are you will get dissapointed. Prepare yourself for the worst and if things work out for the better then its a HUGE bonus.

          I'm sh** scared about having Sicily in my forward line but its something I'm happy to try out.
          The other option im considering is going with Cyril Rioli & Christenson which I may very well go back to, due to the $100k price discrepancy between Sicily and Cyril Rioli in all honesty.
          Rioli has averaged 90+ since 2010 only last year his average dropped dramatically to 64 but then again he only played 7 games last season.

    Hey DR, I really like your line-up. If you are happy with it, I'd run with it. I don't have any Saints players personally, they either burn me when I do pick them or I get burnt because I didn't pick them. So I tend to stay away from them because it scares me.

    Good luck! 🍀

    One of the more pure guns and rookies team going around. I'm running 9 mid pricers, needless to say we only share 5 players over 250k. If all your rookies are named consider Scicily to Petracca. I've got both, but one is going to go to to tribunal at some point you'd think.

suhdagel · 20/03/2018 at 12:18

morning morning morning as always good to see everyone on the grind to finalising their teams, would love to hear what you blokes think.

42,800k left

i have gone very deep in fwd which i worry about because these breakout players need to perform. what do u reckon? any ides maybe downgrade to a rookie? what rookie?
should i change my mid rookies and maybe put sicily down back instead of one of the mid pricers down forward.
any advice would be great cheers.

    Dean · 20/03/2018 at 19:40

    I like it mate. Also agree Re: Oliver, Zorko or Kelly its basically flip a coin for these players.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/03/2018 at 07:56

    Oliver is my pick of the three as well. Gawn loves hitting it down his throat.

Gingging · 20/03/2018 at 12:21

Tips on any changes I should make??

Defenders: laird, Hibberd, savage, coffield, naughton, murray. (Finlayson, doedee)

Midfielders: danger, Martin, Mitchell, Fyfe, coniglio, armitage, Brayshaw, kelly. (Banfield, Barry, holman)

Rucks: gawn, nankervis. (Cameron)

Forwards: heeney, Greene, smith, Rayner, Stephenson, fogarty. (Ryan, fritsch)

    Dean · 20/03/2018 at 20:18

    @Gingging – Decent side but you are making a huge mistake by having both Coffield & Finlayson in defence because both these players are MID/DEFENDERS.

    Swap Coffield with L Murphy in defence and then swap Brayshaw to Coffield and this will then allow you to swing Coffield & Finlayson from Midfield to Defence and vice versa and while doing this change you will pocket yourself an extra $95k

    I don't like the idea of having high priced rookies, any more then 2 high priced rookies is a waste and you have 4 in your side which is crazy as you have Coffield, Naughton, Brayshaw & Fogarty.

    Keep in mind almost all cheaper rookies will generate you more cash then the more expensive rookies.
    The only two high priced rookies I would consider keeping providing they are selected for round 1 are Naughton & Coffield mate.
    If however you are still adament on keeping all your high priced rookies then thats fine, just get rid of Banfield and bring in Coffield in order to allow you to take full advantage of Coffield & Finlayson's DPP (Duel Position Players)

    Good luck mate.

    Randomcliche2 · 21/03/2018 at 08:01

    Keep A Brayshaw. 🙂 you can open up the dpp swing set later. Cheers.

JDP · 20/03/2018 at 12:23

Can’t decide between Sicily Mills or McGrath as D3

Currently have Sicily but the other 2 may get midfield time and get more points

Any thoughts appreciated

    Randomcliche2 · 21/03/2018 at 08:05

    One will get suspended I'd bet. I don't like any of those 3 at D3. Sicily in forwards if you must have him…I do though. Flip a coin on the others. I've read that Hanners might play wing this year so there could be more mid minutes. McGrath should get better as well.

Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 12:27

Can someone tell me how to pick a side? I have a reveal tomorrow but hate everything about my team

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 12:41

    Just pick Cripps and Kruezer Lek. Everything else should just fall into place.

      Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:31

      They're already in haha

    Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 12:47

    Intelligent auto select does a pretty good job

      Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:34

      This is the team it gave me…

      DEF: Simpson, O'Shea, Bonner, Naughton, Mirra, Finlayson (Yeo, Seedsman)

      MID: Dow, Garlett, Cripps, Higgins (Richmond), Petracca, D.Martin, Coniglio, Caddy (Wingard, Stephenson, Armitage)

      RUC: Kreuzer, Simpson, (Cox)

      FWD: Rioli, Walters, Daniher, Fogarty, Christensen, Smith (Franklin, Giles-Langdon)

      $72K in bank

        Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 13:37

        Krussse and Crippa in that team, so its looking pretty good.

        Franklin and Yeo are solid bench cover.

        The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 14:35

        Stick the C on Garlett and ya done Lek.

        Dermin8r · 20/03/2018 at 19:00

        Which Rioli? There are 3 and they are all forwards. 🙂
        (I've got all of them in my AFL Dream team just as a cheeky gimmick, reckon I should pop Long into my MID)

Nerd Balls · 20/03/2018 at 12:31

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

    Gingging · 20/03/2018 at 12:33

    Do you think lycett over Nic Nat?

      Nerd Balls · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

      Really just looking for a cash grab and upgrade arouns the byes. Surely he can average 80. any better options aroun dhis price?

        Derek · 20/03/2018 at 12:44

        NicNat is not as cheap as I thought he would be

      BadgerHoney7 · 20/03/2018 at 12:51

      Nic Nat is playing, and will be number 1 ruck in that side, so ultimately Nic Nat

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 13:11

    I think Lycett was mainly mentioned as a option through the preseason as Nic Nat maybe missing early. Now some reports saying he might be ready r1, im not sure he is a great pick anymore. Ur backs and mids look solid. Forward line i believe u should rethink. Its a tough line to fill this year so dont make it tougher. Selecting 3 midpricers that u are hoping will all take the next step is wishful thinking. U will be needing to make a lot of corrective trades and potentially u will run out of trades come seasons end.

      neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 15:09

      Disagree Hotly The only other way would be prems and rookies. I would think of the prems Buddy is a lock but too dear Heeney is not much better than 3 midpricers and Billings un reliable then you have your expensive rookies/ etc BELL CHRISTIANSEN RAYNER STEPHENSON. All 4 have better J S than your rubbish rookies led by Fritsch but are a risk I would not take a chance with ANY FORWARD ROOKIES two of Heeney/billings/ buddy and 4 midpricers I would even go further and have the flog Sicily linked to Brander as a 7th forward trusting only Fritsch even that is a HUGE RISK NO ONFIELD FORWARD ROOKIES FOR ME

BadgerHoney7 · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

· 4 hours ago

Money in bank: 2,800

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Luke Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray — Finlayson Mihocek

Questions: Luke Ryan is someone I'm not sold on atm due to hes had one season in the game and not one that I quite trust at the moment. Was thinking Sav but not too sure anymore.

MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, JOM, Brayshaw, Brodie — Kelly, Banfield, Holman

Questions: I'm quite set at the moment on this midfield and think its probably not going to change from here on out. Brodie is probably my only question just seeing whether I will benefit more from downgrading him to Barry and still probably get the same scoring output.

RUCK: Gawn, NicNat — Olango

Questions: Bunga said Nic Nat will play Round 1, and hes scoring output in my opinion is too hard to avoid even if it takes him a couple of Rounds to warm up.

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Bell, Fritsch — Garlett, Liam Ryan

Questions: Only the FWD rookies just because of the fact that they're so light this year, Bell downgraded to Christensen banks me 30k but ultimately it is who scores more and Bell plays much more up the ground then Christensen does.

How to get a premo def for Luke Ryan: Brodie – Barry, Bell – Christensen, banks me 100k and allows me to get someone like Simpson or something, don't know if its worth it tho.

Feedback greatly appreciated community!

    BadgerHoney7 · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

    Or going Sicily to defense then Tracca down forward

Holty · 20/03/2018 at 12:37

One more spot in this league. 833476

CalebCripps922 · 20/03/2018 at 12:43

Struggling with R2 currently have Nank he looks good but i'm worried I've been sucked into JLT hype don't have much money to go up to someone but could try any help appreciated!

    BadgerHoney7 · 20/03/2018 at 12:56

    Its a trap

FearTheBeard · 20/03/2018 at 12:45

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?

Otherwise I could break my heart and cut Dusty out with Congilio & jump on Oliver & Kelly?

    Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 09:38

    Really like the team if you are going for league win. If going for rank there’s too many round 14 bye players IMO. F1 to F3 and D1 to D3 on that bye plus Danger, Dusty and Fyfe. Dusty to Kelly would help that and a few other changes might be necessary across lines.

      Fearthebeard · 21/03/2018 at 21:04

      Yep just gunning for league wins mate lol

Whitey · 20/03/2018 at 12:48

I see nearly all side running only two rookies on field in the midfield. Am I stupid to be running 3? It means I am only running 1 in the forwards and have Sicily at F5.

Cheers in advance.

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 13:07

    No personally I see three as the way to go

Derek · 20/03/2018 at 12:59

have faith the SuperCoach Gods will provide us forward rookies.

It is like a few years ago when we had no defence rookies and people were jumping out of windows, but Jock said to us, “don’t be afraid, they will come”.

And just as the season started, two tiny little specks of Hope came forth in the form of Oxley and McIntosh just as Jock had predicted.

Have faith community.

(I’m looking at you Mr Higgins, Ahern, Spargo, Wilson, WRioli, Venables, Guelfi & Naish)

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:36

    Never forget

    BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 15:11

    Settled on your team yet Derek?

Da Boysh · 20/03/2018 at 13:10

Hi All!! I have some unusual decisions but still enough of the good stuff was wanting some opinions – pending some rookies not being announced

DEF:
Hurley, Shaw, Sicily, Brayshaw Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Murphy)

MID:
Martin, Merrett Mitchell, Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Finlayson, Banfield (Kerry, Barry, Holman)

RUC
Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD
Heeney, Wingard, Smith, Petracca, Keefe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Thanks community

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:37

    Wingard said in an interview that he's likely to play majority forward, turned me off him

    Love the Hurley pick

    Solid side with some nice risks

      Da Boysh · 20/03/2018 at 13:43

      Thanks Lek! Didn't realise that about Chad I will bring someone else in… but who is the question.

      Loving the podcast guys

        Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 14:00

        Greene could go well if he stays out of trouble, good early draw too

    Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 13:46

    Solid league side, don't see it being competitive in overall

      Da Boysh · 20/03/2018 at 13:50

      Thanks, any easy fixes you think or the whole side is just not really suited?

        Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 13:58

        I think it will be really hard to be competitive without danger, looking like he will miss one game at most.
        It will be such a hard task to bring him in once his is playing and you're going to miss out on his early round points, and cost your self some trades in the process.
        Only fwd rookie I'm banking on is Fritz, Keefe will be a borderline selection as will Garlett, and I don't like to scoring potential of Ryan enough to have him on field. I've had to go 5 deep in the fwd line, and rely on the more secure backline rookies.
        Cameron won't play much, and won't make too much money, I personally like the loophole option for r3 and saving myself 20k

          Derek · 20/03/2018 at 14:16

          Who are your rucks Trev?

            Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 14:26

            No sure if you're referring to me as you've called me Trev a few times.
            Im going with Kruuuse and Gawn
            -Not Trev

              neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 15:27

              I totally agree trev sorry WOW BUT even Fritz is risky at F 6 let alone Garlett Ryan Rioli the GWS kid or KEEFE unless you have him linked to SICILY (DEF) The Defensive rookies will make coin.
              LOCKED GAWN and KREUZ /olango cheers N D D

              Browncow · 20/03/2018 at 17:38

              Thanks Rusty?????

          Da Boysh · 20/03/2018 at 14:18

          thanks heaps for the feedback definitely agree with R3 I think I will do that, i am considering upgrading Garlett to a mid price FWD I have just enough cash for someone around the 300k mark

Derek · 20/03/2018 at 13:11

LEK what are your thoughts on SPS has DPP but awkward price of $371k.

Cheaper than Petracca and Devon.

Thoughts?

    Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:38

    Only played a half of JLT, banking on a big breakout…I think he'll be relevant just not this year

    Tibor · 20/03/2018 at 17:21

    There is a reason Petracca and Smith cost more. It is based on their past performance but the likely improvements in both players and teams only adds to this. Carlton should improve but both Dees and Drug cheats should both be a season advanced

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/03/2018 at 19:55

    Derek.
    Not sure what happened to SC Addict and a couple of others, no one knows but this has created a couple of spots in the happy place league.
    If you want to join and go head to head with the boyz the league code is:

    123493.

    Lets get ready to rumble.

TheGreatBozza · 20/03/2018 at 13:17

I've restructured my team again for a more healthy bye plan. Ditching Bonner for a rook, to allow me to go Parker up to Titchell:

DEF: Laird, Savage, Ryan, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Finlayson)
MID: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Banfield (Barry, Holman, Kelly)
R: Gawn, Grundy/Ryder/Nank [undecided] (Lavender)
F: Walters, McLean, Smith, Sicilty, Christensen, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

As I said it gives me a solid by spread. Other options I'm looking at is Titch down to Whitfield or Parker, freeing up cash to move Sicilly to DEF (for Ryan), and get a Billings/Greene. Although TBH I think Titchell & Luke Ryan combo would outscore a Parker & Greene combo. Thoughts?

Charles · 20/03/2018 at 13:33

Should I go with danger and fritsch or dusty and Christensen??

    Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 13:38

    If you want to be competitive in overall standings danger is a must

Mystic Mac · 20/03/2018 at 13:35

Call me crazy but I'm going with Neale over Fyfe to start this year. I'd love them both but there's something about 4 dockers in the guts that doesn't sit well with me. Anyone else running with Neale?

    neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 15:35

    ThiNk I will agree with you you're CRAZY . DANGER TICH DUSTY and fyfe are must haves as quick as possible KELLY OLIVER ZERRETT and M.CROUCH make up the rest BUT points scored between 8 and 12 i.e. crouch and bont/neale is minimal

      Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 15:38

      Crazy

Lekdog · 20/03/2018 at 13:40

I I think the Billings move will net you basically the same points but lock in a top 6 forward, I lean slightly towards that move

Walz · 20/03/2018 at 13:44

To help you with selecting that on-field "0" for your loophole, below is the number of times each team plays in the end of the round (last 3 games of a normal round, last 2 games of a Bye round). More late games the "0" plays = better loophole options
West Coast Eagles 12
Melbourne 11
Fremantle 10
North Melbourne 10
Collingwood 8
Hawthorn 8
Western Bulldogs 8
Essendon 7
Richmond 7
Brisbane 6
Carlton 6
Geelong 6
Adelaide 5
Greater Western Sydney 5
Port Adelaide 5
Sydney 4
Gold Coast 3
St Kilda 3

    Marcus · 20/03/2018 at 14:10

    Great work.
    Looks like should go for cheapest DPP from WC, Melb, Freo, or Norf.

TrillieFarley · 20/03/2018 at 13:58

Gday community. After some constructive or abusive feedback for my team below. Have at it xoxo

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Naughton, Mihocek)
MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Oliver, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, T. Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)
RUC: Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Rayner, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

All rookies obviously dependent on who’s named.

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 14:08

    Regardless of rookies named I don't think Rayner is anywhere near worth 200k. I'd downgrade Coniglio or another mid down to a rookie and then Rayner to a premo forward

      TrillieFarley · 20/03/2018 at 20:24

      Thanks Dac. I’m working on moving some things around to turn Rayner into Christensen.

      Think I might throw Sicily back and turn Savage into Petracca. Then again, I’m sure I will have 100 different team structures switched around between now and lock out lol

    dom · 22/03/2018 at 11:54

    Great team you piece of shiit.

GSal · 20/03/2018 at 14:12

What do you guys think
D – Laird, Simpson, Hurn, Stratton, C.Ellis, Finlayson (Murray,Doedee)
M – Mitchell, Kelly, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Libba, Robinson, Jager, Dow, (A.Brayshaw, T.Kelly, Holman)
R – Gwan, Lycett (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Sicily, Darling, Day, Lloyd, Rayner (Venables, Fritsch)
$121k in kitty

    DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 15:29

    I wanna be constructive but get rid of Stratton, Ellis, Dow, Lycett, Darling, Day, Lloyd and Rayner, then move Mitch Robinson to the forwards. Also Andrew Brayshaw needs to be on field

    Derek · 20/03/2018 at 17:07

    gosh…..

Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 14:17

Pies confirm Murray and Stephenson will debut.

    INPieman · 20/03/2018 at 14:24

    Murray absolute lock. Not sure about Stephenson

Michael · 20/03/2018 at 14:20

Shuey and Titchell or Parker and Zorko

    Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 14:25

    The one that doesn't have Shuey in it

BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 14:32

Kreuzer, Bont, Armo
VS.
Nank, Oliver, Libba/Cogs

Also who is better pick Liberatore or Coniglio?

    Tom · 20/03/2018 at 21:53

    2nd option

    Nathan · 20/03/2018 at 21:58

    And I'd say Coniglio because of libbas inconsistency

Daniel · 20/03/2018 at 14:33

Laird, Simpson, Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Doedee
( finalayson, Mirra)

Martin, Mitchell, Crouch, Fyfe, Parker, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield (Holman, Barry, Kelly)

Martin, Gawn

Heeney, Greene, Billings, Smith, Christensen, Stephenson
(Keefe, Fritsch)

Thought guys very appreciated quite new to SuperCoach

    Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 17:44

    Martins scoring comes almost solely from ruck positioning so if Archie Smith is named, then back off

      Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 17:44

      Stefan by the way

Rivo · 20/03/2018 at 15:20

Getting nervous as hell. Team version 8265…

D: Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keefe, Murphy);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Barry (Kelly, Holman, Garlett);
R: Martin, Gawn (Cameron/Olango);
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Petracca, Sicily, Fogarty (Fritsch, Ryan).

Questions:

Do I change Garlett to Banfield (lose Swing with Fwd)?
Do I change Cameron to Olango for the captain loop?

    BloodyFranklin · 21/03/2018 at 10:27

    Yes on Garlett to Banfield. 👌

    Your call on the rucks. 😶

BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 15:26

Thoughts on my team please community. Any feedback is very much appreciated.

Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Mihocek

Gawn, Kreuzer, Olango
Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Fritisch, Langdon, Garlett, Ryan

11k remaining.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 17:43

    Love your team, but have some small issues with some players.

    Bonner:
    Too expensive for a cash cow, too cheap for a keeper, doesn’t score enough to be a combination

    Oliver:
    Young, inexperienced, but could explode and get 120, too uncertain as a keeper for me

    Kreuzer:
    Bloody good, but expensive. You have to back him in to average 110 plus

    Sicily:
    Flogometer: 99.99%

    Ahern:
    Bad JS bad scoring potential

      BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 21:23

      Thanks mate, much appreciated!

        Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 09:41

        Disagree with Oliver you can lock him in. Also only question mark on Kreuzer is his health so if you trust him to stay on the park pick with confidence.

Heg · 20/03/2018 at 15:33

    noah · 21/03/2018 at 11:44

    Ahern might not get a game this year.

    KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 11:55

    I'd say downgrade either Sicily or Savage to someone like Naughton or O'shea to free up some cash and upgrade libba to a Premo.

      WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 12:41

      O'Shea wont be named

FWD: Billings, Walters, Mclean, D.Smith, L.Taylor, Bell (Fritsch, Miers)
55k spare

I think i have gone deep in FWD because rookies there are all shit. I would like to have more than 55k spare just incase any of my picks do badly in the first 2 weeks – so then i can upgrade them.
I dont have Laird because i believe he will drop 50k in the first 8 weeks.
I think all of the onfield rookies i have exposed should average 60+ pts, which i think is acceptable.

    Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 18:19

    A few Geelong rookies on your bench in O’Connor, Constable, and Miers. Do you know something we don’t?

      Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 18:28

      O'Connor should be a regular, Constable is a jet and will improve fast when he gets a start. Haven't heard much about Miers yet.

Crank · 20/03/2018 at 16:21

Steve · 20/03/2018 at 16:36

Hey guys, any thoughts on the below two options?

Option 1:
Josh Kelly
Forward rookie
27k left

Option 2:
Coniglio
Christensen
53k left

Option 1 means I have to field two forward rookies, while Option 2 means I only field one.

Cheers

    Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 16:46

    Kelly has to be your priority out of those 2 options. How many rookies will you have on field if you picked option 1?

      Steve · 20/03/2018 at 17:16

      4 down back, 2 mids, 2 forwards

      Thoughts?

        Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 17:22

        Maybe you need to select option 2 so you have 7 on field. I think 8 is too many, you might fall behind really quick. i have 6 first year players on field and Bonner.

          Steve · 20/03/2018 at 18:07

          Cheers!

John · 20/03/2018 at 16:41

Jack Billings or Devon Smith

    Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 16:48

    Billings for me. Smith will be ok early while full of steam then he'll fade whereas Jack is ready to go to another level.

      Derek · 20/03/2018 at 17:02

      big price difference though, not really a like for like compare

        Mick · 20/03/2018 at 22:28

        Both

KingWinter7 · 20/03/2018 at 16:50

Def- Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (L.Murphy, Mihocek)

Mid- Danger, Dusty, Titch, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)

Ruc- Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron)

Fwd- Heeney, Billings, Walters, D.Smith, Keefe, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

113.8k left over

4 on field rookies in defence or 3 in the mids ???
Originally had Hurley but traded him for a rookie in order to upgrade to Coniglio in the mids
If Danger needs to be traded he turns into Kelly and Coniglio is potentially upgraded to him in a few rounds
Cheers

    Derek · 20/03/2018 at 17:01

    round 14 will be a challenge

Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 16:55

Thank god Higgos back

Lethal · 20/03/2018 at 17:02

Hey Community,
Would love some input into this team that i think i'm finally happy with;
Welcome as much feedback as possible

11k left in the bank

DEF: Laird, Hibbered, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keeffe, Murphy)

Gone pretty light in defense this year purely because I think it easily has the most available rookies for cash generation and on field scoring potential. Selected Keefe on the bench despite concerns over both job security and scoring potential but it allows be to have Sicily as my floating D3 and F4.

MID: Danger, Mitchell, J Kelly, M Crouch, Merret, Fyfe, A.brayshaw, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

Midfield is fairly straight forward, gone guns and rookies while paying a premium for a couple for increased job security.

RUC: Ryder, Gawn, (Cameron)

Ryder's bye is obviously not ideal but i believe he will comfortably outscore all other options throughout the year. In the ideal world Cameron comes in for a 50 odd but i'm ultimately happy to potentially cop a zero to lock away the 2 best rucks in the comp.

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Petracca, Sicily, Fritch, Giles-Langdon (L Ryan, Garlett)

Had to go deeper than I'd like in the forward line due to the severe lack of rookies available to us this year but I'm confident my F1-4 will all feature in the top 10 come the end of the year.

Thanks Community!

    Tibor · 20/03/2018 at 17:29

    Other than your Ryder reasoning I reckon you've got a ripper side. As a demon supporter I'm wary on Fritsch because even if he plays early they have a recent history of giving them a taste then putting them away again, did it with Hannan last year and Oliver the year before, might play then disappear before you can cash in

Macca · 20/03/2018 at 17:23

Fogarty Doedee in
Pike said on TripleM
Told them today
Gives them time to organise family and friends

    Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 17:58

    Question is how long does Fogarty stay in?

      The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 18:03

      Only until Tex comes back

      DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 19:10

      I think I'll leave him out to start, but then if he scores well and Tex returns for round 3 and Fog retains his spot, I'll get him in

        Macca · 20/03/2018 at 19:19

        What i'm thinking

      Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 17:18

      Another thought, Fog starts brilliantly and demands a spot, aka SPP. You wait til round 3 to get him in but low and behold you have other more pressing issues to address and miss out entirely. Forward rookies with scoring potential are pretty thin on the ground.

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 19:30

    Yeah so it looks like Murphy won't play

nankthetank · 20/03/2018 at 17:58

Hey community, just wondering what the go is for Buddy this year?
Hasn't been shown as much love this year as I thought he would.

    The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 18:12

    Like all KPF's he tends to drop in value at some point and that's when you try and get him in.

    Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 18:17

    Still deciding between Buddy and Heeney, can't have both until after the byes.

The Ranger · 20/03/2018 at 18:00

The ruck line is still doing my head in….any love for Zac Smith?
Had a good finish to the season and has a stupidly good midfield to knock it down to….

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/03/2018 at 19:59

    Ranger.
    Not sure what happened to SC Addict and a couple of others, no one knows but this has created a couple of spots in the happy place league.
    If you want to join and go head to head with the boyz the league code is:

    Lets get ready to rumble.

therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 18:11

This is the real Shark move of 2018 here. Don't listen to any imposters. I was the one who mentioned Travis Cloke to John Bruyn back in 2010, although he probably wouldn't admit it.
My SHARKMOVE last year was Clayton Oliver. I'm going to be revealing my 2018 SHARKMOVE soon, only to Jock Reynolds community members. I will do this by giving a clue each hour on the hour. I will answer the first guess each hour but that's it.
6pm clue: This player hasn't had the best pre-season which is why nobody's talking about him, however a certain spot at his club due to a injury or retirement has opened up, which is sure to improve his scoring. Anyone wanna guess, remember I only answer the 1st guess. Good luck!

    Starkingdom · 20/03/2018 at 18:17

    Is it Menadue?

    BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 18:21

    There was over 40 blokes who retired last year and god knows how many injuries per club and hundreds of players who did nothing in the pre season.

    At least give out the position.

    Saundo · 20/03/2018 at 18:27

    Weitering

    therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 18:42

    I must take the first answer which was Sam Docherty. And I must inform everyone that that was infact wrong. @brownlowboy the position is actually the 2nd clue which will be revealed at 7pm (every hour on the hour remember) stayed tuned. #cantherealsharkmovepleasestanduppleasestandup

      michael · 20/03/2018 at 19:03

      Sam Docherty

    hedski · 20/03/2018 at 21:37

    Alex Pearce, Zac "God" Dawson has retired?

      meph · 21/03/2018 at 08:29

      McCartin?

Richard Branson · 20/03/2018 at 18:18

Zorko or Oliver as an M2? I have zerret at M3.

Willymack1234 · 20/03/2018 at 18:25

Zorko or Zerrett?

    Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 15:20

    Zorko if you like getting scores of 200

      KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 15:37

      then 56 the next week

      WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 16:09

      Zorko's never scored 200. He's scored 150+ 7-times in 122 games his goals are the difference
      Merrett has never scored a 150 in his 80-ish games

GJI · 20/03/2018 at 18:36

Hey guys I’m tinerking with two teams thoughts on both:

Def: laird,ryan,Bonner,doedee,Murray,Finlayson
Bench: o’shea, Naughton

Mid: danger,Mitchell,Kelly,Oliver,fyfe,Bradshaw,Brodie,Banfield
Bench: jelly,Barry,Holman

Ruck: gawn, nank bench: Cameron

Fwd: menengola,Heeney,Billings,Walters,D.Smith,ryan
Bench: Fritsch, narrier

I have gone big in the fwd line as there isn’t as much quality cash to be made yet IMO – second team :

Def: laird,hibberd, ryan, doedee,Murray,Finlayson
Bench: murphy,Naughton

Mid: danger,dusty, Mitchell,Kelly,fyfe,Bradshaw,Brodie,Banfield
Bench: jelly,Barry,Holman

Ruck: gawn, nank bench: Cameron

Fwd: menengola,Billings,Walters,D.Smith,ryan,fristch
Bench: Fogarty, narrier

It’s kinda either dusty and hibberd with rookies or Bonner, Oliver and heeney.

Thanks

Thoughts and feedback would be great

EasyMoneySniper · 20/03/2018 at 18:46

Hey Squad,
Between Coffield and Naughton, who would you take? I feel like naughton has way better job security, however i believe coff plays a more supercoach relevant game than naughton even though naughton out scored him the JLT.

What do you all think?
Not long now supercoaches!

    therealdreamteam · 20/03/2018 at 19:39

    Naughton.
    Played against men (WAFL) tick
    Better job security tick
    Better JLT scores tick
    I also argue that he may have the more SuperCoach relevant game, as intercept marks/possessions are worth gold.

    Keenbutclueless · 20/03/2018 at 20:06

    My only concern on Naughton is that the coach said he has that spot because of the move of Easton Wood forward. So far Wood hasn’t fired up forward, and the coach only had to call time on that, or Naughton gets towelled up and he might move Wood back.
    You can find a knock on most rookies, if you look hard enough, so maybe this a little churlish. But just made me wary of trusting him as a lock

Jordan · 20/03/2018 at 18:47

If u were to not start one of danger, titch or dusty, who would it be? And why?

    Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 19:57

    Best I can come up with is Dusty does usually thrown in the odd poor game. He’s not immune to the odd 60/70 point game.

    WoW_Trevor · 20/03/2018 at 20:41

    Dusty because a fend off that touches the throat is contact above the shoulder and in 2018 it will correctly be a FA. even if the other player bends their knees

    Patch · 20/03/2018 at 23:32

    Our door is always open to them. Truth be told, it's their door. And it's more of a tarp than a door anyway.

therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 19:03

its 7pm folks, that means it's time for the second clue for the SHARKMOVE 2018 player.
Incase you missed the rules earlier I can only answer the 1st guess.
At 6pm the community's guess was Sam Docherty which was wrong. Boy oh boy, what a pod that would have been.

The 2nd clue is: As leaked earlier the 7pm clue was to reveal the position this player is classified.
I can confirm that this player has been classed as a FWD by our friends at champion data. Wow! That knocks out roughly 75% of players. Am I making this too easy for you guys? #cantherealsharkmovepleasestanduppleasestandup

    BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 19:04

      Good guess

    therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 19:36

    As per rules I can only accept the first answer which was P.McCartin. This is wrong however. Standby for the 8pm clue.

Jordan · 20/03/2018 at 19:07

Hurley and o’shea
Or
Lloyd and bonner

I’m leaning towards option two as I want 6 rookies rather than 7 starting on the field
Thoughts?

    Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 13:47

    Lloyd n bonner imo

Keenbutclueless · 20/03/2018 at 19:30

With Crows and Pies announcing debutants, might be unlikely for Murphy and Mihocek.

    Holty · 20/03/2018 at 20:47

    That is great news. I had almost scrubbed them off after Tex on radio this morning said Doedee and Fog wouldnt play.

Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 19:40

Will Brad Crouch being out for 8 weeks impact Darcy Fogarty job security?

SirSamuel016 · 20/03/2018 at 19:57

Cracking podcast boys!

Hoping some peeps can give me their thoughts on my team after I've gone through it time and time again changing things up before probably settling on this:
DEF: Hurley, Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, O'Shea, Doedee (Finlayson, Mihocek)
MID: Dangerfield, J.Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Shuey, Brayshaw, Dow, T.Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)
RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Olango)
FWD: Billings, Walters, D.Smith, Petracca, Poholke, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Going to start Danger whether he plays or not, J.Kelly could still become T.Mitch if I decide I don't want another POD (32K in the bank still), and Walters keeps changing with Mundy. Rookies will also change depending on who's named.

    hedski · 20/03/2018 at 21:44

    With the lack of fwd rooks Sammy, I'd swing Sic fwd and grab an extra def rook.
    Sandi and Shooey bit dodge but could be ok, nice work.

therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 20:01

its 8pm folks and time for the 3rd clue for the SHARKMOVE player of 2018.
What do we know so far? He is classified as a FWD, a spot has opened up in his side due to injury or retirement of teammate and he hasn't had a good pre season which has made his podness go through the roof!

Clue 3 is: The club he plays for is NOT Melbourne based. As previously stated I can only accept the 1st guess. Good luck community!

    BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 20:05

    Himmelberg – GWS

      Nathan · 20/03/2018 at 20:18

    Rory Lobb

    therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 20:09

    As per rules I can only accept the 1st answer which is Himmelberg. I'm afraid this is not correct. Standby for the 9pm clue.

      BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 20:14

      Yeah okay I give up someone else can have a go

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:26

StevoRivo · 20/03/2018 at 20:02

Ok – take 2

Higgs, if you’re out there! Team version 8265…

D: Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keefe, Murphy);
M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Barry (Kelly, Holman, Garlett);
R: Martin, Gawn (Cameron/Olango);
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Petracca, Sicily, Fogarty (Fritsch, Ryan).

Questions:

Do I change Garlett to Banfield (lose Swing with Fwd)?
Do I change Cameron to Olango for the captain loop?
Am I going mad?

TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:03

Good podcast gents! The humour is starting to flow!

I am not starting Patrick Dangerfield until I am absolutely sure he is playing. Even if he is named, I will wait to the last minute just in case he is not a late out. If he definately lines up, I have $209K in the bank to trade out Luke Parker and replace him with Danger. (No trades lost) If Danger does miss, I will let Parker do his stuff and score me some juicy points. Then in round 2 I will reasses things. I parker who looks in great nick goes big with a 120+ but one of my other premos flops, get's injured, is suspended I can keep Parker and replace the under achieving premo in my midfield. There is always one that drops a turd with their breakeven then skyrocketing and bleeding big $$$ after the round 3 reset. I see a potential 3 way benefit with this strategy.
As Geelong play the last game on Easter Monday in round 2, that should surely give Danger enough time to get himself right. Its just a bit of "bet hedging" on my part. Dangerfield missing even one round is a seriously big deal.

Anybody else dealing with Danger with this kind of approach?

Cheers community.

    Keenbutclueless · 20/03/2018 at 20:22

    It was going to be Oliver. Same game, so easy. Also doesn’t have round 14 bye. But now he is in doubt also.

      TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:27

      Oliver in doubt now as well?? He is a starter in my side at the moment. What is the problem with Oliver?

        Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:29

        Copped a knock to his knee in the second JLT match

          TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:40

          I remember that, but thought nothing of it at the time. Wow. Imagine both Danger AND Oliver being both late outs. Some serious scheit will hit the fan! Will be keeping a close eye on Mr Oliver…

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:24

    I want to do it but there aren't really any players from the last two games that I would be confident keeping in my team. I have been burnt by Sydney midfielders too many times to consider them. Maybe Oliver but ideally I would start with both.

      TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:29

      I have been lucky with Parker. Did not have him last year, but had him the year before where he was very good. The 2018 JLT games suggest he could be back to full fitness and back to his best. At $537K he is a nice POD over Cripps.

        Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:32

        At the moment I have selected the top 6 midfielders by average from last year apart from Ablett who I have replaced with Fyfe.

        Last year I had Hanners and JPK in the midfield and I think the year before I had 2 sydney mids as well. I could have pushed deeper into the top 1000 without them.

    StevoRivo · 20/03/2018 at 20:34

    Hawk, I’m holding Danger, expecting him to miss Round 1 only and will run with Titch or Fyfe as C. It means a rook comes in off the bench (Kelly, Banfield Barry), so points conceded. Don’t want the hassle of trading him back in if he goes bang and pulls out a couple of 150’s straight up. I like the Parker starting pick and hope it works for you though.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 20:56

    Don't love this approach since a trade is a trade and luxury trades aren't necessary

    belly button fluff · 20/03/2018 at 21:22

    I have an idea to use Dusty as my coin flip , my Harvey Dent (Two Face). I would love to see what happens with Danger in one game before putting him in my team anyway.
    I predict Danger will score 100 110 in the first, and would like to see how he shapes up with slight niggle and Gablett. Danger is extremely expensive.
    -So I will vice Dusty.
    – If Dusty scores 100 to 120 I go Danger on Sunday as captain. If he doesn't play I still have Dusty's score, save a trade with chance of 110+ if he does play.
    – If Dusty scores below I don't go Danger I keep Crouch captain Kelly. As I may wish to dump Dusty for Danger following week.
    -If Dusty scores above I don't go Danger I keep Crouch loophole Olango. See if Danger drops go crouch to him later or even cogs if he works out.
    Hows that for a convoluted plan that puts all the blame on Dusty if anything goes wrong? hehe… 😉

    Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 21:36

    Planning trades that early is asking for trouble

      belly button fluff · 20/03/2018 at 22:40

      Thanks for sharing some of your thoughts over recent posts Wow. I think I have finally finished.

        Sc_Wow · 20/03/2018 at 22:46

        No worries that’s what I’m here for mate

    BockChoy · 20/03/2018 at 21:38

    Agree on the podcast – it did occur to me while listening that Lek and Patch are now starting build their own brand into this and the graph has been going up steeply.

    I'm not starting Danger or Dusty. I have a view that all players are overpriced at the start of the year and it won't take much for those uber-premos to drop in value and be open for the snapping up.

      belly button fluff · 20/03/2018 at 22:09

      Yeah but as Wow is implying, its more trades used too. I think the biggest fall comes from Danger. The others are worth losing a little money on. If Danger falls it is the biggest hit of any player. He is very overpriced. Yet for some reason I'm still trying to get him in even as a bench for round one. Oh crikey I'm going mad.

        Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 04:36

        Danger may rise, fall whatever, but he's the only player in the whole AFL who scores so many big tons so often, more than any other player.

      Derek · 20/03/2018 at 23:03

      Pay the price!

        TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 23:16

        Trust me. I will pay the right price for Patrick Dangerfield.

    Patch · 20/03/2018 at 23:37

    Cheers mate! I love a good hypothetical but every time I try to plan early trades it falls apart and something goes wrong. I just don't trust the Supercoach gods to let me execute a plan like that. So much can go wrong but if you're confident, go for it.

    If he misses two you're laughing.

    JohnDJ59 · 21/03/2018 at 02:43

    I'm going with Titch and Fyfe as my C&VC,for the first five rounds,then plan to get Danger in round six.If there wasn't any doubt about Dangers fitness I wouldn't even be thinking about it,he's usually first picked for the mids,but with Ablett there and now the hammy,I want to wait and see how it goes.Yes I know it will probably bite me on the bum,but that's what I'm doing.

    Hey Hawk, I wouldn't bother mate, just keep him I say, it's only one game, even if he misses, you can make up the points during the season if you have a solid team, why burn a trade if you don't have to, Leagues don't start until round 3 anyway..and most of us should play for Leagues first and rank second, winning the 50 grand is like hoping to win Lotto.
    The overwhelming issue most teams had last year was a lack of trades at the end.
    If he misses round 1, he'll be back round 2 for sure, it was just a minor strain.
    P.S, it's definitely in Australian English…no offence. 🙂

Heg · 20/03/2018 at 20:18

G'day community, could I please have some thoughts on my team:

$17.9k in the bank

Def: Laird, Hibberd, Rance, Mills, Naughton, O'Shea (Keefe, Mihocek)
Mid: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Andrew Brayshaw, Banfield, Kelly (Garlett, Barry, Holman)
Ruck: Gawn, Naitanui (Balta)
Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, English, Fritsch (Giles-Langdon, Ryan)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, TIA

    TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:34

    Nice side on paper, but your team is extremely cash generation weak. No Doedee?, no Murray?, Garlett unlikely to start, Dom Barry poor job security, and Timothy English onfield? He is is unlikely to play at all come round 1. The core team looks good, but you need to fix your rookies, and fast IMO. Good luck mate!

      Heg · 20/03/2018 at 20:43

      Thanks so much for the help. I really appreciate it.

        TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:45

        No worries at all.

James · 20/03/2018 at 20:19

Is it worth putting Allen Christiansen in my fwd line or should I stick to another rookie?

    StevoRivo · 20/03/2018 at 20:26

    Depends on your set up James. He’s not a bad option at F5 but with so few rooks to start this season you should have a good set of forwards at F1-4. Wait for selections tomorrow/Thursday re rook options.

      James · 20/03/2018 at 20:32

      At the moment my fwd line is Heeney, Greene, Billings, Venables, Fritsch and Ryan

        StevoRivo · 20/03/2018 at 20:38

        So Christensen at F4 is a risk as it means 2 rooks at F5 and 6. The options of Bell, McCartin (StK) are worth looking at for F4 and 5, then Ryan or Fritsch at F6?

          James · 20/03/2018 at 21:13

          This is the rest of my team, I’d really appreciate some more suggestions, cheers.

          Def: Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Naughton, Doedee, Murray BENCH: finlayson, Murphy

          Mid: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Cripps, Brodie, Banfield BENCH: Kelly, Barry, Holman

          Rucks: Ryder, Gawn BENCH: Cameron

          Fwd: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Venables, Fristch, Ryan BENCH: Keefe, ZGL

            Mickey · 21/03/2018 at 09:43

            3 rooks in the fwd line is too many this year mate.

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:27

    I have McCartin and a few others ahead of him at the present contending for F5

      TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 20:50

      Yeah, I am also considering Mc Cartin at $234K. I know he is a bit mid pricey, but the kid is young and so much upside there now that Saint Nick has departed. His JLT form pretty good too. At the end of the day, we have to take a risk somewhere in the forward line this year. I have tossed up Tom Bell, Christensen, and even Rayner the rook. Right now, my gut says Mc Cartin.

Jimmy · 20/03/2018 at 20:30

Ryder or Naitanui?

    StevoRivo · 20/03/2018 at 20:40

    Ryder easily.

Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 20:43

If anyone can chuck me a review, that'll be grouse

Def: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Finlayson, Murray, Doedee, (Payne, Murphy)

Mid: Danger, Titch, Zorko, Fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Brayshaw (Freo), Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

Ruck: Gawn, Nank, (Pittonet)

Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon, (Venables, Garlett)

    Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 20:46

    I wouldn't pick Savage if someone had a gun to my head, however if you're fine with the risk pick him. Apart from that team looks solid.

      Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 20:53

      What's the risk with him? I'm going mainly off statistics but he just seems to rack up points

        Defying_Madness · 20/03/2018 at 22:08

        Look at his scoring history for starters. His role could also change at any moment. Has trap written all over him.

    TOPHAWK1 · 20/03/2018 at 21:11

    You are too light on in your FWD line IMO. Giles Langdon on field? Not a snowballs chance in hell of that happening in my side. Venables and Garlett probably wont play round one either. Payne, Murphy and Pittonet are probably non starters also. Just my take buddy.

      Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 21:25

      How do you like this?
      Out: PAYNE, CONIGLIO, VENABLES
      IN: NAUGHTON, O'Connor, SICILY

        DacZawson · 20/03/2018 at 22:47

        like

        Daveo · 20/03/2018 at 23:08

        Just dont see Sicily being a consistently good scorer tbh

therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 21:07

Hello community, it's 9pm Australian Daylight Time and that means time for another clue.
So far we know he's a FWD. He hasn't had a good pre season and a spot has opened up in his team which he will surely grab with 2 hands. We also know he does NOT play for a Melbourne based team (doesn't rule out Geelong) As normal, I can only accept the first answer, good luck community.

Clue Number 4: As per Clue 3 we already know he doesn't play for a Melbourne based club. I can also add he does not play for the Adelaide Crows. That in itself would be a big clue! I know, right? But that's not even the juicy part….
Although he does not play for Adelaide, he does share the same first name as more than one player currently on Adelaides list.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 21:09

    Rory Lobb

      Tyruddanaut · 20/03/2018 at 21:10

      Shares his name with Rory Laird, Plays for a non-Melbourne team, in GWS and If freed up by the retirement of Shane Mumford

        gator59 · 20/03/2018 at 21:11

        Lewis Taylor is the answer

          Nathan · 20/03/2018 at 21:15

          And which two Adelaide players have the name Lewis?

        BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 21:17

        Along with Sloane and Atkins

      Sully · 20/03/2018 at 21:45

      If he plays Round 1 he is in my team also. Averages 100 when played as sole ruck (3 games = small sample size I admit)

        HarryH · 21/03/2018 at 04:32

        Yep not sure if this one is a shark move. I think most people recognise less than 400k for a 1st ruck in a top team is a sweet deal. The only reason he has low ownership is an injury interrupted pre season. If he's named round 1, expect his ownership to soar. I for one have him in and have for the last month but will second guess myself if not named!

          therealsharkmove · 22/03/2018 at 12:54

          It is HarryH. Unless of course you're Harry Houdini and trying to give us false hope through an illusion spell!

DustyCut · 20/03/2018 at 21:22

Hey guys,

I was thinking of going in with Defense 3,0,3, Midfield 4,1,3 and Forward 4,1,1. This way, less exposure up forward and more cash generation across other lines. Team looks like:

Def: Laird, Hibberd, J.Lloyd, Naughton, Murray, Finlayson (Doedee, Keeffe)

Mid: D.Martin, T.Mitchell, M.Crouch, Z.Merrett, Coniglio, A.Brayshaw (freo), Brodie, T.Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)

Ruc: Gawn, Nankervis (D.Cameron)

Fwd: Greene, Billings, Walters, McLean, D.Smith, Fogarty (Fritsch, L.Ryan)

You guys think I'm losing too many points on other lines, or do you think this structure looks competitive?

    neil demons delight · 20/03/2018 at 21:50

    should read 2 1 3 mids 4 1 3 fwds 2 3 1 If Coniglio is a midpricer then so are LLOYD WALTERS MCLEAN and SMITH Cameron is a waste I would go OLANGO and definitely Comiglio to DANGER .Forwards and Defence is tops and zerrett/crouch are good choices

      DustyCut · 20/03/2018 at 21:58

      Yeh, fair enough. Cheers for the Olango tip, did he get elevated or something?

        JohnDJ59 · 21/03/2018 at 02:29

        No just good for the C loophole,since WCE play most of their games at the end of the rounds.

Steeeve · 20/03/2018 at 21:22

I have 5 grand left and no Coffield, Brayshaw, Fogarty. I also have Mirra… Should I have more in the kitty?
And if so what do you recommend?

Back: Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Mirra)

Mid: Danger, Titch, Kelly, Cripps, Coniglio, Brodie, Banfield (Barry, Kelly, Holman)

Rucks: Goldy, Gawn (Cameron)

Fwd: Heeney, Dahlhaus, Smith, Petracca, Fritsch, Ryan (Dawson, Garlett)

    JohnDJ59 · 20/03/2018 at 22:48

    I'm still trying to work out how the hell you only have 5k left with that team.I would like to know who your other mid is as well,whether he is a premo or a rookie.Apart from that there are only a few things I would change.Out of the team would go Shaw, Goldy and Dahlhaus. In to the team could come Mills,for Shaw,Brayshaw just needs to be your first picked rookie in the mids,Nank or Ryder for Goldy,Walters or McLean for Dahlhaus. Hope that helps,ps I also prefer Buddy over Heeney,but that's just me.

      Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 08:06

      Other mid was Fyfe.

      I hate the rucks this year. Thinl Goldy can be back in top foem though. Even with nobody to hit to should average 100 I hope.
      Shaw is a risk but showed his old kick happy quarterback form in JLT. Mills won't get much mid time.
      Dahl I agree with you. I've gone him down to McLean.

      Still don't have enpugh to get Brayshaw in unless it's for Brodie. I dropped Coniglio and added Brayshaw, Coffield and Christenson but thought 'what am i doing?'. Cogs should average 105, good for m8 until a late luxury trade. Why drop him for vasically three high priced rookies??
      Maybe I could go Shaw down and bring in those other three but I really think he can average 90.

therealsharkmove · 20/03/2018 at 21:28

sorry Gator I can only accept the 1st answer which was Rory Lobb. I can confirm that Rory Lobb is………………………………….officially the SHARKMOVE player of 2018
I can hear the steak knives getting sharpened as I write this. Yes I know he has been injured all pre season, yada yada yada, but a sharkmove will never be an obvious player because that would make the purpose of the SHARKMOVE redundant.
Fun fact: he had one of the best hit out to advantage ratios in 2017. He has the best midfields at his feet. And perhaps more importantly, Dawson Simpson is rubbish. GWS simply have to play Lobb even if he's not 100%.
Bar Gray, Billings & Heeney he is the only forward capable of averaging 100.
It also should be noted that John Bruyn spat out his coffee in laughter when I suggested Travis Cloke to him 8 years ago. The rest is history. #cantherealsharkmovepleasestanduppleasestandup

    Steeeve · 20/03/2018 at 21:54

    … but lots of people would have Lobb
    If he was going to play

      Northernsoul74 · 20/03/2018 at 21:58

      Sounds like he’s a chance for round 1.

        Steeeve · 20/03/2018 at 22:26

        True, as is Simpson. It's unfortunate, he was in ny first draft of a team but if he's underdone and sharing ruck duties you'd be brave to select him.

John · 20/03/2018 at 21:32

Any suggestions? Cheers guys.

Def: Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Naughton, Doedee, Murray BENCH: finlayson, Murphy

Mid: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Cripps, Brodie, Banfield BENCH: Kelly, Barry, Holman

Fwd: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Venables, Fristch, Ryan BENCH: Keefe, ZGL

    Nathan · 20/03/2018 at 21:41

    You're forward line is far too weak. Most of the rookies you have there are highly doubtful for Rd 1. I suggest moving Sicily forward and trading venebles for someone like O'Connor down back

SUlly · 20/03/2018 at 21:39

What am I missing with Will Brodie? Seems to be in a lot of sides and hasn't shown much to date… At the high rookie price, I just don;t see it. Someone show me the counter argument please… Cheers

    BrownlowBoy · 20/03/2018 at 21:44

    Averaged 70 across JLT
    Second year player

    Extra pre season, bigger body, ablettless midfield & a reasonable JLT. Yes please

Ryano · 20/03/2018 at 21:47

Is pendles a good option? Off year last year but gun previous few years?

    Steeeve · 20/03/2018 at 21:54

    Seriously considering moving Kelly down to Pendles to free up cash.

      Ryano · 21/03/2018 at 08:52

      Its a tough one he could certainly get back to his best

KSinny · 20/03/2018 at 21:48

GUYS BONT OR ZERRET?

    Patch · 20/03/2018 at 23:45

    ZERRETT <3

      Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:27

      M2 for me! Zerrett is a proven gun!

Barry · 20/03/2018 at 21:51

I'm unsure my self Ryano interested what others think!!!

    Sometimes you need to take a risk. In my team.
    Free will see plenty of the ball down back.

o meara and rioli or Coniglio and Zac Giles Langdon?

    lock n load · 20/03/2018 at 22:02

    could go armitage instead of o meara

    dontblushbaby · 20/03/2018 at 22:31

    Danger,Kelly,Fyfe,Cripps,Coniglio,Brayshaw,Brodie,Kelly – Clark,Banfield,Holman – he /she said will start with Danger in his team even if he's not named

      Jay · 20/03/2018 at 22:56

      Beautiful human

dontblushbaby · 20/03/2018 at 22:52

Brayshaw or Brodie – both look like they will start R1 but I can only have 1, or should I try and get both ?

    Willymack1234 · 20/03/2018 at 23:26

    Both

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 00:59

    Both if you can fit them if not Brayshaw on JLT average but i would personally flip a coin

    ToneStar · 21/03/2018 at 11:31

    Both

NovemberFoxtrotIndia · 20/03/2018 at 23:07

J.Bronson · 20/03/2018 at 23:18

If a couple of people can chuck my team a review I'd be stoked! Haven't finalised rookies and bit sketchy on Bonner and Ellis-Yolmen but have selected them cos i reckon they will probably boosst in value a fair bit. Thoughts appreciated.

Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Murray (O'Connor, Finlayson)
Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, Ellis-Yolmen (or JOM?), Rayner, Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holman)
Gawn, Nankervis (Pittonet)
Heeney, Billings, Walters, Caddy, Bell, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

    Patch · 20/03/2018 at 23:47

    Like it mate. Not sure on Lloyd's output when McVeigh is back, but the rest is excellent. Two questions:

    Ellis-Yolman? Is he there to make cash or points? Not sure he'll do enough of either in that slot
    How will you pick up Danger? Is there spare cash about?

    Otherwise looking good despite my concerns on Caddy.

      J.Bronson · 21/03/2018 at 20:08

      Cheers Patch. I'm confident with Lloyd when Mcveigh is in the team (Swans supporter haha). Ellis-Yolmen is a good player but job security probably isnt ideal with Adelaide having such great depth- cya.
      Have fiddled around with other stuff, fully set apart from whether M7 is dow brayshaw or stephenson.
      Bugger all cash left.

      Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, L Murphy)
      Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, Angus Brayshaw, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)
      Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)
      Heeney, Billings, Robbie Gray, Caddy, Bell, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

      Bang bang

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 00:58

    Would go Brayshaw over Rayner

      J.Bronson · 21/03/2018 at 20:09

      cheers mate i agree.

      Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, L Murphy)
      Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, Angus Brayshaw, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)
      Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)
      Heeney, Billings, Robbie Gray, Caddy, Bell, Fritsch (Keeffe, Ryan)

KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 00:08

Savage and Keefe
or
Sicily and Christensen

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 00:32

    Hey KSinny, I think option 2 is much more solid. Both those guys will start.

      KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 10:18

      Cheers I was also thinking Sicily at D3 and Fogarty at F5 now that it seems he will be named. Thoughts? Better than Christensen?

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 00:57

    Option 2 is safer out of the 2

    Defying_Madness · 21/03/2018 at 01:09

    The option without Savage

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 01:16

      Agree!

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:28

    None of the above! But I guess 2 if I had to.

GOODO71 · 21/03/2018 at 00:16

Loved hearing Higgo back on the airwaves tonight …………….. although I'm not sure I have sizable enough plums to take his advice on McCartin.

Think I've finished tinkering at version 372 of HAWKSHANK REDEMPTION. Any feedback welcome.

DEF : Laird, Hibbo, Bonner, Murray, Doedee, Naughton (Finlayson, Mirra)
MID : Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Kelly, Oliver, Brodie, Brayshaw, Banfield (Holman, Kelly, Barry)
RUC : Gawn, Nank (Cameron)
FWD : Heeney, Walters, McLean, Smith, Sicily, Fritsch (Ryan, Miers)

and still with a bit of $$$$ in the war chest

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 00:30

    Like your side Goodo, and the Bonner pick, I've got him too, hoping he gets a start and stays for awhile, should score well and make some money.

      GOODO71 · 21/03/2018 at 00:37

      Cheers mate. Fingers, toes and everything else crossed. Seems to score alright when he gets a game.

Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 00:34

I was wondering what happened to all the comments from the first 9 hours of this thread? Does anyone know why it was deleted?

    JohnDJ59 · 21/03/2018 at 02:33

    I noticed that as well Russty,when I clicked on my history to get back into it this morning,it said it didn't exist.

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 02:35

      Hiya John, bloody weird for sure, wonder if admin can explain it?

        JohnDJ59 · 21/03/2018 at 02:55

        No my only private one is Sons and the other good one,Jolly Roger,the last spot went four days ago,we have a lot of activity on the chat&comment in that one,those three I put up to fill went really fast as well.If I had known last week I could have got you in to the Jolly Roger,it was on 17 teams for a while.

          Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 02:57

          No worries mate, I might start a last minute league and see what happens 🙂

            Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 07:46

            They messsed up the edit mate. Left some naughty language in there directed at the DrSC lads.

James · 21/03/2018 at 00:55

Hi all

Nearly finished depending who plays.

DEF : Laird, Hibbo, , Murray, Doedee, Naughton Finlayson,(Stodard Mirra)

Mid: Martin, Titch, Oliver, fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Banfield (Barry, Kelly, Holman)

RUC : Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD : Heeney, Walters, Petracca, Christensen, Stephenson,Fritsch (Ryan, Ahern)

Money in war chest to upgrade Selwood to Danger later, recon he will drop a bit

Let me know what you think about the fwds

Thanks

Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 00:55

Cogs or Libba for M6 Community? or go with 3 rookies on field? Current mids are Danger, Zorko, Crouch, Merret, Fyfe, M6*, Brayshaw, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

    Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 09:30

    I’d go Cogs or Libba. Who are you leaning towards out of those two Gord. Cogs just for mine but very close.

      Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 22:19

      currently have cogs in there at the moment. Libba is that bit cheaper, more of a pod and i will need to upgrade them later

Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 00:57

DEF:Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Murphy).

MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Libba, Brayshaw, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman).

RUC: Kreuzer, Gawn (Cameron).

FWD: Billings, Walters, McLean, Smith, Stephenson, Fritsch (Ryan, Carrier (LH)).

130K in the bank.

Midfield might be too thin with the the two mid pricers. Thoughts?

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 01:03

    nice looking team. I personally wouldnt start all 3 of cripps, cogs and libba they are cheap for what they should produce but i dont see them as keepers

      Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 09:27

      True that’s my concern. Do you reckon downgrade Kreuzer to Nank or Martin and upgrade Libba?

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 09:41

      Same. Try going teo big guns and a rookie, say, Kelly, Merret and Brodie instead. See what that feels like

        Coz311 · 21/03/2018 at 09:53

        I’ve got to have one of cogs or Libba I’m afraid. Looking at downgrading Kreuzer currently to Nank and then upgrading Libba to Kelly.

          Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 10:10

          Why? Kruse is a lock. Set and forget. Don’t put to many players in your team that you just want to trade. Lib and cog won’t be top 10

            I’m not going to have both Libba and Cogs but want to run with one as I think there’s value there.

            Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:30

            I reckon Cog is more likely to be top ten than Libbe. Coniglio is a lock for mine.

              Locked and Loaded · 22/03/2018 at 05:43

              Cripps will be a keeper

Haze · 21/03/2018 at 01:39

Second year SC so looking for a breakout. Any help / suggestions on my team welcome. Especially whether I have the right balance of premos across each line? As not many forward rookies around, have gone heavier there and lighter in defense…have $84k left. Should I spend it now?

Def- Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Coffield, Finlayson (Keeffe, Murray)
Mids – Danger, TMitch, Zorko, Fyfe, Parker, Brayshaw, Brodie, Banfield (Kelly, Holman, Barry)
Rucks – Martin & Gawn (Olongo)
Forw – Heeney, Billings, Walters, Greene, Petracca, Fritsch (Ryan, Garlett)

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 02:20

    Solid team! Like that fwd line, it is heavy but you shouldnt need to do any trades in there apart from one upgrade. I like to keep some cash in the bank for a corrective trade early

    Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 08:03

    Team looks solid mate, strong with some smart pod selections. Zorko and Parker are both guns. Keep an eye on Barry to see if he gets in ports best 22

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 09:37

    Very good team. Might be ready to go

Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 05:25

Hey Guys, and Girls, I have been forced to abandon a League I was committed to from weeks ago due to the administrator being a slack prick and at present, only has it half full with 2 days to go…so bugger him!

I'm going to start my own league called ''Last Minute Rags" League code 372021.

I would only like committed , full season players, who will not crap out and abandon their team because their baby crapped it's pants on Saturday afternoon, all are welcome, as long as you are a player who will stay with it for the whole season, if you turn out not to be that type of Coach, you will be hunted down and eviscerated…or blacklisted, by me…next season 🙂
So, if you're a serious player, who will go the distance, I have a fresh League ready to join and it's first 17 in…first served, cheers Guys and Gals 🙂
I'm guessing the earlybirds will catch the worm…hope you're all passionate players, otherwise, just keep your faces in your phone.

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 06:56

    Bumperama…Oilyboids 🙂

    Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 07:35

    Good luck russty I’m in. You seem like you’ve got you’re head screwed on right so should be good competition.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2018 at 09:16

    Dont wanna join the happy place now?

      Jay · 21/03/2018 at 09:47

      Trig is there any more room?

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 13:55

      Ah crap Trigga I assumed it'd be full mate..sorry, hopefully I'll still be welcome next year, think we're in 2 or 3 together anyways 🙂

      Finnius · 21/03/2018 at 18:32

      What is the code Trigga?

    GOODO71 · 21/03/2018 at 09:18

    Mike · 21/03/2018 at 10:18

    any chance theres 2 spots left?

StevoRivo · 21/03/2018 at 07:39

Hi Community. Would appreciate some thoughts on these please?

1. Billings (F2) & Nank (R2) or
Lambert (F2) & Martin (R1)? Have Gawn already.

2. Oloango loop or use Cameron as R3?

3. Garlett bench mid swing with Fwds or Banfield (no swing)?

    DacZawson · 21/03/2018 at 09:26

    Nank and Billings
    Olango
    Banfield

      StevoRivo · 21/03/2018 at 10:28

      Thanks Dac. Will wait to see If Archie Smith is picked. Looks like Garlett may play?

        Marty · 21/03/2018 at 17:31

        Garlett will play. Reluctant with Banfield as both Hills are yet to come back.

          StevoRivo · 21/03/2018 at 21:58

          Yep, just to make it a slightly harder decision.
          Both players a risk. Sleepless night ahead.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:37

    Mambert.
    Olango Bloom.
    Banfield.

      StevoRivo · 21/03/2018 at 11:18

      Thanks Whatya!
      Mambert feeling like a better POD option, only concern is Archie Smith.

GAZ · 21/03/2018 at 07:54

Def – Laird, L Ryan, Hibberd (Melb), Naughton, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Finslayson)

Mid – Titch, Danger, Fyfe, THE Zorko,J Kelly, Brayshaw( FRE), Garlett, Banfield, (Barry, Holman, T Kelly)

Rucks – Gawn,NANK (Cameron)

Fwd – Heeney, Billings , Smith, Barlow, Sicliy , Fritch (Ryan, Brown)

No many in Bank should i down grade sicily to a Taberner or Christisen for money in bank who is team good

1K IN BANK Should i not get Luke Ryan or not get one of my forwards

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:44

    I like this team a lot Gaz. Yep I'm not sold on Sicily yet, and if he sets the world on fire for a defender is it going to cost us much to upgrade or get him later ? not really, not much to miss out on there.

    I'm thinking you could take a risk position there……..what about McCartin? Jackson.T (ruck duties…..)?

    I like Luke Ryan personally but can understand he's probably as risky or more risky than Sicily, but opinion is opinion.

    And I don't rate Taberner or Christensen, has Taberner changed roles or teams? if not forget him.

    Edit – My reasoning with Taberner is that price……………

Sam · 21/03/2018 at 08:18

Luke Ryan OR Sicily
Naughton or Coffiled

    belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 09:00

    Sissy because DPP otherwise either. See who is named and where with Naughton or Coff leaning toward Coff lollie for JS.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:35

    I like Ryan personally but take your pick. Naughton should have solid JS due to doggies down Adams and possibly others I forget. Research those factors thoroughly.

      Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 15:36

      Dale morris too

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 16:15

    Ryan and Naughton.
    Sicily will burn you and coffield probably wont play round 1

Daniel · 21/03/2018 at 08:39

Hi all

Nearly finished depending who plays.

DEF : Laird, Hibbo, , Murray, Doedee, Naughton Finlayson,(Stodard Mirra)

Mid: Martin, Titch, Oliver, fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Banfield (Barry, Kelly, Holman)

RUC : Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD : Heeney, Walters, Petracca, Christensen, Stephenson,Fritsch (Ryan, Ahern)

Money in war chest to upgrade Selwood to Danger later, recon he will drop a bit

Let me know what you think about the fwds

Thanks

    belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 08:55

    I like it. Don't like Parker atm, but if you do nice POD. Also would prefer one rookie forward on field instead of two. Wait and see who's named I guess.

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 09:47

      I jumped on Parker when I saw him last week. I know it was only JLT but it was the way he was running to every contest, he had a look in his eye that said he was ready for a massive year.

      The swans will not start 0-6 again.

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:51

        Yep parker looks set for a big one, and you're spot on I don't think they'll be starting like last year.

          belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 11:25

          Your actually tempting me Smoky and Derek. Would free up some cash for me so I don't have to take the weitering/tab risk in my team. Going to watch a couple of replay swans matches. After last year with having treloar and hanneberry in my team. I'm reluctant to take on a premium POD. I want the top 8 mids this year only. 🙂

            belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 12:41

            nup not changing lol.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:33

    Defense is thiiiiiin. Which is ok if other lines are solid. But let's face it that forwardline is about as solid as an ikea product left outside for a couple of years.

    Christen-sun is a massive risk, and Stephenson I had to search for his crappy scores because I known I'd seen him but he disappeared off my radar so quick I forgot who he was. Averaging 50 over the JLT and almost 200K? Nah yeah just friggin Nah mate.

    I hope you can prove me wrong but I fear that team if it goes poorly will be way behind the 8 ball by the time it hits round 4.

      belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 09:47

      Hey Smoky Don't you think The doggies will chuck a rookie out for a mediocre game before SK would? I think SK would give the rookie an extra chance. I know there are a couple down for the dogs but they still have plenty don't they?

        belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 09:49

        posted on wrong thread sorry Smoky this is meant to be up one. 😀

          Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:52

          I'm really not sure on the best JS on those. Haven't researched as thoroughly this year as others to be honest.

Max · 21/03/2018 at 08:45

Who gets dropped from Freo when the Hills come back. Is Banfield one?

BockChoy · 21/03/2018 at 08:53

I notice there are a number of leagues being started from within the community (of which I've joined a few). I suggest once these are all finalised, we collate them and have a weekly summary on how each are tracking.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 13:38

    we Might see if we can organise a champions league.

    People who finish first in their league prior to finals go into JR Champions of Champions Final Series.

    Just need someone with a spreadsheet.

belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 09:03

Last position in team. Weitering or Taberner? Why? I know different lines but I can put Sissy in either. One of these two will be my risk. Although I am leaning to Weitering.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:07

    Sicily is a risk too. There is no way he counted as a premo yet there's nothing to back that up other than a few games late last year, and remember he did get a 29 SC with 89% TOG? During that patch of excellence. A small patch of form is one thing, a proven scorer is another.

      belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 09:38

      yeah true. I guess I actually have 4 risks in my team but one of these two will be the risky risk risk. 😀

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 09:45

        Yeah I hear ya. Just pointing out not to count chickens before they've hatched. made that mistake before thinking I have 15 keepers when in reality I had 10 lol.

HallyMate · 21/03/2018 at 10:23

Jaeger (M7) and Bell (F5)
Or
Brodie (M8) and Curnow/Robinson/Caddy (F4)

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:32

    Brodie and caddy. Yep i said it. Had caddy in my team, feel like Richmond being successful will translate to more points for him, but have since looked at myself in the mirror and ditched him.

      HallyMate · 21/03/2018 at 10:56

      I love a good forward pod but Richmond were pretty successful last season and Caddy pulled out one ton for the year, any reason why that would change?

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:49

        Yep that's why he's out for me. when he's up and about he looks alright. But then again so does a bag of potatoes when it's up and about in a chip shop. (yeah that analogy doesn't work)

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 12:49

    doesn't really make sense to me Hally.
    Your asking if you should have Jaeger at M7 or Brodie at M8. Who's your M7 if Brodie is M8 and who is your M8 if Jaeger is M7?
    Then you ask Bell at F5 or a selection of potatoes at F4. Who will be the F4 if Bell is F5 and who will be F5 if a future french fry is F4?

      HallyMate · 21/03/2018 at 14:37

      Brayshaw will be M7 with Brodie, or M8 with Jaeger
      Sicily will be F4 with Bell, or F5 with the potatoes Trev

        WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 15:16

        Jaeger and Brayshaw is slightly less risky and has more upside than Brodie and Brayshaw F5 Sicily sounds brilliant Hally and if you turned Brodie into Banfield you might be able to get bell at F6

Mark · 21/03/2018 at 10:27

Hello, I’m in a bit of a knicker twist here… over who to pick as my f5 out of the following.. Impey/taberner/Townsend/bell or christensen?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:34

    What about a big risk in Paddy McCartin? Surely as capable as any of those and cheaper?

    22 maybe break out time into an average of 80-ish? Could be a good trade out at bye time as the season wares on also.

Mark · 21/03/2018 at 10:28

…or anybody else at a similar price range!

KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 10:36

Any advice on my team?

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Naughton, O'shea, Murray (Doedee, Finlayson)

MID: Titch, Kelly, Zerret, Fyfe, Bont, Cogs, Bradshaw, Kelly (Banfield, Barry, Holeman)

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD: Heeney, Mclean, Smith, Petracca, Fogarty, Fritsch (Ryan, Garlett)

Currently have $127k in the bank so could either save it or use it. Would live to hear your thoughts community!

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:45

    Im a crows fan but still not convinced with fogarty as tex will be back. Could burn me yes, but more than likely he will not get enough games in time to make the cash by the time you need it.

    For a bit more you can lock in Paddy McCartin (I'm saying that name a lot for a some reason) but for one he has JS, he's a massive unit for a 22 year old and they've been developing him for a while now, I feel like he'll have a good year.

    Ironically I'm listening to the podcast now and Higinbotham is talking about him.

      KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 11:00

      Cheers for the suggestion 👍

Tiger Man · 21/03/2018 at 10:44

Is 8 premiums with the same bye round too much? Currently have 8 with the round 14 bye (2 def, 3 mid 1 ruck 2 fwd)

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 10:54

    It does seem a couple too many, maybe you could exchange a couple around to players you are set on getting anyway?

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 12:50

    Not if the remainder of your 22 is also premium which it could be by round 14

    Sc_Wow · 21/03/2018 at 15:22

    Rd 14 will be hard, looks like you have a spread, so at least they are not all grouped in 1 position. I think it’s hard to select a rd14 ruck though

      Tiger Man · 21/03/2018 at 21:44

      I have Nank at the movement, the rest do seem very ordinary

    Tiger Man · 21/03/2018 at 21:43

    Thanks fellas, have done some reshuffling and brought it down to 6.

ProTravo · 21/03/2018 at 10:58

I'm not seeing J.Lloyd down back in any teams. Am I missing something?
He gets a lot of the ball and and has a good 2017 avg despite one low score due to injury which brought him down.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:49

    Oh he's down back in my team right next to Laird 😉

    Ja191 · 21/03/2018 at 17:24

    Problem with lloyd is McVeigh taking his role and subsequently going from 100-105 to 80-90. Check his scores with and without mcveigh

      Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:15

      I am worried about that. have actually considered JJ……..but shhhhh

DannyB · 21/03/2018 at 11:20

Hi Community,
Would love some feedback on my team please.

DEF: R.Laird, M.Hibberd, J.Howe, A.Naughton, T.Doedee, S.Murray, J.Finlayson, N.Coffield
MID: T.Mitchell, J.Kelly, M.Crouch, Fyfe, P.Cripps, A.Brayshaw, W.Brodie, B.Banfield, D.Barry, T.Kelly, N.Holman
RUC: Gawn, Nank, Olango
FWD: I.Heeney, L.Dahlhaus, M.Walters, C.Petracca, J.Sicily, B.Fritsch, J.Garlett, L.Ryan

Have 9,100k in bank. Any feedback would be great.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:51

    I like it generally speaking but are Petracca and Sicily going to do it for you. I suppose if one of them ends up top 8 you'd be ok.

      Dan · 21/03/2018 at 17:49

      Petracca should get much more midfield time and I think Melbourne will look for him on field. Sicily is my risk pick. Hoping he pays off. Wanted D.Smith there, but would have to sacrifice Coffield for him and I'm not confident in D.Smith as he is very injury prone.

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:20

        Should maybe.
        "Christian Petracca: Pushing forward

        Christian Petracca expects to start in the midfield against Geelong Cats at the MCG on Sunday, before pushing forward during Melbourne's season-opener"

        That's on the Melbourne website as a title for a video.

        I'm not convinced. I'd take Hogan at that 383K and I reckon he can lift that average of 70 up to 85, with fitness (I assume he's had a good preseason) and a lot of ball up forward (maxy gawn in good shape, emerged guns like Oliver among many others……loss of Viney is big but not everything they have depth)

        Both of them have great potential, in different ways, at the end of the day there's a bit of luck involved 😉

Matt · 21/03/2018 at 11:30

Def- Hurley Laird Doedee Murray Finlayson O'Connor Mihochek
Mids- Martin Mitchell Kelly Fyfe Cripps Libba Brayshaw Kelly Barry Banfield Holman
Rucks- Witts Gawn Cameron
Fwds- Billings McLean Smith Petracca Taberner Fritsch Ryan Brown (Loophole)

Want to take Witts and Ryan as Pods, but I'm still tossing it up.
General thoughts and feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:59

    Wait so you've got Ryan in defense too I'm assuming? One short back there and obviously not referring to rookie ryan as a pod. like that pick as the defense seems a hard one, JLT numbers were solid without being too spectacular and misleading.

    I have laird, Loyd and Ryan currently myself, I wanna see how the savage and sicilies of the world pan out because I'm trying to avoid the burns, can't see ryan losing anything only getting better, but this is all biased personal perception in the end. (love this game haha)

    I like the Witts pick. He was getting big hit out numbers last year. Was a great pick that I backed in from the start.

    His numbers from the JLT aren't terrible, although there's one problem I see in his way and that is Tom Nicholls. But what Ruck doesn't currently have another trying to steal his thunder. Go with your gut, perhaps they are easing Nicholls back into it, just remember the early BYE round…………

ToneStar · 21/03/2018 at 11:54

ToneStar…

Laird, Hibberd, Ryan, Colfield, Murray, Finlayson.
(Naughton, Doedee)
Dangerfield, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Fyfe, Braysaw, Brodie, Barry.
(Banfield, Kelly, Holman)
Gawn, Nankervis. (Olango)
Heeney, Billings, McLean, Smith, Christensen, Fritsch.
(Keefe, Ryan)

Two back premiums plus Ryan, who will be my POD in defence.
Plays similar to Shaw, elite kick and great kick/handball ratio.
Plus Freo will see more of the ball down there.

I’m going in with 5 mid premiums this year. No Cripps or Cogs just to be different.

Gambling Nank, should have a better season with another preseason up his belt and great team to feed to tap outs.

Gone little deeper in the forwards this year due to lack of rookies.
I like McLeans steady progress, Smith great value, both should see more mid time.
Christenesen is good enough for F5.

Rookies could change as teams are announced tonight.
Thoughts appreciated…

Ricardo · 21/03/2018 at 11:56

Help please: Cripps/S.Martin or Merrett/Nankervis?

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 12:40

    Merret

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:01

    yeah Zerrett/Nank but would prefer Zerrett and Martin 😉

Josh · 21/03/2018 at 12:01

Cripps or Parker? Have had Cripps in my team for majority of the preseason up until now switching him to Parker.

My reasoning is with Gibbs leaving, Cripps should receive more attention from taggers, and with Docherty out for the year I believe Carlton will struggle. This will likely hinder Cripps scoring potential.

I'm leaning towards Parker as he looks like he's up for a big year as are the swans, and with his relatively low ownership he is somewhat of a POD

What are everyone else's thoughts on this?

    KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 12:14

    I like it!

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 12:39

    Inside mids don't really get tagged anymore Josh. Murphy is the one that teams tag even when Judd was still playing they tagged Murphy. That being said if you think that Parker is a better option go for him. Gibbs didn't give the ball to cripps by hand or foot ever, not once in a single game ever so his departure will have negligible effect on Cripps.
    The thing that will affect Cripps is Mathew Kennedy who is a similar type of in and under player. Cripps will attend less stoppages this year and spend more time forward because of Kennedy. Cripps is as tall as most KPF's so if he can mark and kick straight he could have a 30 points increase over last year or, he could stay the same I don't see any reason that his score would decrease after his first ever complete preseason.

      Josh · 21/03/2018 at 13:04

      Thanks Trevor, appreciate the detailed response. I was leaning towards Parker, but now I'm really not sure. Both will have a good year but, just can't choose who will be have the better

    GloryDays90 · 21/03/2018 at 12:47

    Parker as he is a POD and will bounce back this year.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:03

    I would pick Parker here. Or take Coniglio for a similar scorer but cheaper.

    Weirdo · 21/03/2018 at 16:07

    I've got both

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:27

      or all three.

      Pretty sure Bucks said Murray is in Shake

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 17:58

        My mistake. Murray certain not the other 4.

      Chris_Judd · 21/03/2018 at 19:04

      Narrier for loophole and ahern will be swapped for Garlett who has just been named. Already swapped O'Shea for Coffield but not sure what to do with keeffe.

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 20:59

        Nice 👍

TheGreatBozza · 21/03/2018 at 12:32

I'm toying around with some different structures. Would love to hear some feedback

Option 1:
Danger (M1), Grundy (R1), Giles-Langdon (F6-8)

Option 2:
Whitfield for Danger (leaves Dusty, Titchell, Fyfe M1-3), Ryder R1, Cox (F6 – to swing set during byes)

Option 3:
Drop Titchell for Whitfield (Danger M1, Dusty M2), Ryder R1, Giles-Langdon (F6-8), cop a donut in R10

I really like Ryder as a ruck option, not really 100% sold on other options other than Grundy, Nank & Nic Nat for value.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:27

    I like Ryder too, although that Bye round. was toying with cheap ruck combos but there's nobody that can do it. Had Dawson Simpson but then slapped myself around a bit.

    With a ruck it's not bad though, for instance if we do a set and forget ruck combo, if everything goes to plan there will be no trading a ruck out, so you'll get the same amount of games out of your ruckmen as everyone else.

    Geez Martin might be making way for Ryder shortly. Who's Ryder's competition at Port this year with Trengove gone? The Hoff?

nbasportsandnews · 21/03/2018 at 12:44

Getin close to that time! Can feel the buzz in the air!!

Thoughts on this team

DEF: Hurley, Laird, Siciliy, Hibberd (Nth), O'Shea, Doedee (Murray, Finlayson)

MIDS: Dusty, Mitchell, Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Cripps, Brodie, Brayshaw (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

RUCKS: Gawn, Goldy (Olango)

FWDS: Gray, Dahlhaus, D Smith, Christensen, Fogarty, Fritsch (Ahern, Garlett)

    GloryDays90 · 21/03/2018 at 12:46

    Gray is out round 1, Dalhaus has to many question marks around him.
    Better off with Billings, Walters, Lambert or McLean

    Other than that not a bad team. Watch your rookies though as some may not play.

      nbasportsandnews · 21/03/2018 at 12:49

      Rookies are a question yeah waiting for teams really. Not sure if I mind Gray being out to be honest

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:10

        No you should mind, because he's also out in the early bye round. That's two rounds of wasted 500K potential.

        If you wait till say the second bye rounds (round 11 iirc)

        Trade out a couple out of rookies/midpricers/failed premos – *who have their bye that upcoming weekend round 11*

        &gt; Gray *who had his bye already*

        Then you are getting the most out of your players.

        You get ten games out of the players trade out. Gray comes in you get every game after that with Gray.

        So not once will any of those players be warming your bench.

        The way you are thinking if he misses round one and round 9. Then you're way behind the pack before you've started, benching a 500K player twice in the season.

        (not being condescending just trying to explain clearly mate)

          nbasportsandnews · 21/03/2018 at 15:19

          I understand if you're going for overall obviously what you're saying adds up and possibly makes sense!

          But you're also failing to remember that we are talking about a proven stud who had an average year last year and still managed to average 90+.. Who's to say in the games leading up to round 9 he doesn't average as many points if not more than another player who plays one game more. As for the round 9 bye if you plan well you can execute well…

          Have to think in every aspect here we're talking about Gray at 500k and also who's to say like we've seen in many years before a rookie we play or loophole get an 80+ round 1 and match so called premos.Its fine to think of it as you have but narrow mindedness with no risks in this game gets you no where

            nbasportsandnews · 21/03/2018 at 16:32

            Pretty much why not take a risk with a gun because he only misses one game

            Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:30

            Well I can't really see it being any better if playing for leagues or overall, I spose if Port have a good start to the season and you think he'll ton up plus some to win you a lot of games then fair enough.

            But if he misses round one and on bench likely to lose those matches, plus round 9. Anyway hope it works out I see some pros but in my view the cons very much outweigh it 😉

Paddy · 21/03/2018 at 12:51

Join league if anyone is looking. Heaps available for now.

oldmate65 · 21/03/2018 at 12:56

Community, I really owe it to you this year as I have been unable to spend any great length of time to work through anything. Dug me out of a massive hole. I still feel a little uneducated though so I would love some help with the team.

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Tuohy, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Mihocek)

MID: Danger, Titch, Zerrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Brodie, Barry (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

RUCK: Gawn, Nank (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, McLean, Smith, Petracca, Sicily, Garlett (Fritsch, Ryan)

About 70k left.

The plan is to go deep in the Forward line, but to be honest, not too sure about the current backline structure and players.
Once again, Any thoughts appreciated.

    GloryDays90 · 21/03/2018 at 13:05

    Solid team mate, shoudlnt have to many issues with it. You could downgrade Petracca to Bell/Christensen if you want to upgrade Tuohy.

GloryDays90 · 21/03/2018 at 13:03

This may be my final team going into round 1. Let me know what you all think 🙂

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Coffield, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Keefe)

MID: Dangerfield, Mitchell, Sloane, Fyfe, Parker, Brayshaw, Brodie, Finlayson (Kelly, Banfield, Holman)

RK: Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)

FWD: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Sicily, Bell, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

Still have 83k in the bank, so room to make changes if needed

Dan · 21/03/2018 at 13:09

Need help……..
Sicily or taranto?

    KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 13:24

    Sicily

      Dan · 21/03/2018 at 13:41

      Thanks for that.
      The other one I have is dahlhaus or McLean?

        Ja191 · 21/03/2018 at 13:43

        Mclean

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:12

        Agree McLean. Dollhouse I feel let us all down last year.

          Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 15:37

          Traded dahl out for mclean today. Mclean will receive more mid time.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:46

    Neither. Got any more names? Taranto is an interesting option…….but nah. Sicily I suppose. What about Jackson Trengove? Going outside the box here……scored alright JLT. Doggies didn't get him for his haircut he'll be rucking a lot I imagine.

noah · 21/03/2018 at 13:25

whats evryone doing with clayton oliver. hes looking questionable for round 1. if hes out sould i trade him and who for?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:44

    Zerret, Zorko. Z power.

      Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 15:37

      Pendles might be my choice

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:31

        Haven't seen him mentioned much at all. It's crazy to think really………….

          Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:44

          He'll probably surprise us all and start dropping big tons from the get go haha

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:42

    I've swapped him over to Kelly, and hopefully can pick him up a bit later.

Shane · 21/03/2018 at 13:33

Hi I have a couple spots left in my league, it is ranked a top 100 league from last year so if you're keen feel free to join. League Code: 243775

    Sean's Mob · 21/03/2018 at 15:54

    Have joined thanks

Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 13:44

Is bell a trap?? Beams back into midfield makes me nervous
I can have he, Dunkley or christenson at F5.
Or if I downgrade bonner to a rookie I can turn my F5 into a petracca/Parish. Thoughts?

    Tibor · 21/03/2018 at 14:07

    Do whatever you want But GET Petracca

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:42

    What about this as a spanner in the works…..get hogan instead of petracca. Not as crazy as it sounds. Melbourne should get lots of ball up there, plenty of inside 50's with Gawn knocking it down to a smorgasbord (For you McAvaney lol) of midfielders……………..

    edit – And yeah bell could be a trap. Now look at the hidden code here…….Bonner……….Bell………will be your end………..

Tibor · 21/03/2018 at 13:53

JOM or Angus Brayshaw at almost same money?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:39

    My midfield is looking like my undoing with both of them and Armitage in there.

      Tibor · 21/03/2018 at 16:06

      You win big if they all come good

      Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 16:11

      Yikes… please move on brayshaw

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 18:33

    Oh Angus. thought you were talking Andrew. Always wanted him in my team. Then the whole head knocks and stuff. Pity. Nah ditch him pronto.

Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 13:53

I have both libba And cognilio currently M5&6. Can somebody talk me out of it or put my mind at ease and tell me everything will be okay!? Am I settin myself up for disappointment

    KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 13:54

    I'd say try and upgrade libbs to a premo if u have the cash

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:38

    Yep upgrade/downgrade Libbs.

    Jay · 21/03/2018 at 15:49

    I have both also (with $150k in the bank to upgrade to Danger)

      Finnius · 21/03/2018 at 18:26

      Or just go Libba to Danger and Coniglio to a rookie and don't take the risk. Get a premo elsewhere on the field with the extra dosh.

Bernadette · 21/03/2018 at 13:53

Thoughts on paddy McCartin as a Smokey f5?

    Tibor · 21/03/2018 at 13:58

    Under normal circumstances it's a no to a young key forward but at the cheap price why the hell not he can play and the saints are far from the worst outfit to give him decent supply, Riewoldt retirement probably helps him emerge as his own player, he's a risk but so is anyone else.

    Biggest negative is concussion history if he gets a smack in the head he won't just miss one game he'll likely miss the season with a melon transplant

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 14:18

      i would go him ahead of christensen. plays forward in a better team. looked lively in JLT. just need him to have one big game to get a nice price increase likely to happen. cheaper than christensen.

      have a think about balic

      Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:37

      Yep he's locked into my team at the moment has a few seasons under his belt and is only one price rise above the other rookies (looking at the 170K type price range) not a whole heap in the forward line just strengthens that choice for me.

      That said you only want a small handful of risky selections so depends on how many people are already taking.

Gazorpazorp · 21/03/2018 at 13:54

Armitage? Or Jack Graham?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:34

    Arma for sure, way more room for value growth I reckon, and proven scorer. Graham would be a heck of a pick if he truly broke out but a stagnant hinderence in your team structure if he doesn't.

    The kind that loses you the close matchups and slowly puts you behind the field.

Bells · 21/03/2018 at 13:55

DIfferent file format? I can't play this for a reason that escapes me. What is everyone using to play it?

    Bells · 21/03/2018 at 14:20

    aaahh took about 10 minutes but it arrived on some weird music player or other.

Ja191 · 21/03/2018 at 13:57

Thoughts on boak as a pod?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:10

    Have considered it not crazy, although the bye kills the idea a bit right?

Clueless · 21/03/2018 at 13:58

Christensen or Paddy McCartin for F6?

Also not sure if I should get Coffield in, let me know if you think I should, here's my DEF lineup and MID bench:

DEF – Laird,Hibberd,Howe,Naughton,Doedee,Murray (Finlayson, Keeffe)
MID (M7-11) – Brodie, Kelly, Banfield, Garlett, Barry

Not sure who to swap out for Coffield, any help appreciated, cheers

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 14:16

    not sure Barry will get named. you can fit Coffield in mids and swing him with Finlayson

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 14:31

    I suppose the only one to trade out for Coffield would be Naughton? I wouldn't go with many of those more expensive rookies unless they really look to be worth it ie brodie due to lack of GCS midfielders (Aaron hall is out with a broken finger right?) and Brayshaw selection speaks for itself.

    If you feel Coffield is a better selection than naughton then I'd swap them. looking at scoring ability I'm going to swap them myself, and keep doedee, finlayson and murray as my other backline rooks.

      Clueless · 21/03/2018 at 16:43

      At the moment I've got 188k in the bank so I think I may do what Derek has suggested and move Barry on for Coffield. Thanks to both of you for the help, I really appreciate it

Richard · 21/03/2018 at 14:28

Patch is the weak link of the trio

    Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 15:38

    He's gonna be the dry humour guy. Lek will be the energetic wmotional one. Going to continue developing that chemistry. Give em time.

    The Ranger · 21/03/2018 at 15:44

    Mate go back and listen to Jock and the old crew in 2012, they were pretty rubbish to start with.
    Jock even had a different voice!
    Give the new boys some time, they'll be just fine.

    Starkingdom · 21/03/2018 at 17:13

    Don't be a dick Richard.

      belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 18:31

      Agree… oh lol I get it 😀

        belly button fluff · 22/03/2018 at 17:24

        I like Patch

Willymack1234 · 21/03/2018 at 14:33

Bell, Christensen or McCartin for f5, who are we thinking?

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:29

    Big Paddy

    Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 15:43

    Bell if someone can tell me his guaranteed solid midfield time . Otherwise go McCartin

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 16:05

    Jesse hogan makes a fine F5

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:26

      i have had Jessie at F5. Lobbe interests me now.

        WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 17:26

        I'm going to start again just as soon as the teams are announced

        Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:01

        You mean Lobb surely 😉 That is interesting. So is Trengove for me. Imagine slotting both of them in and getting away with it. maybe some cheeky gains come bye trades and a keeper in Lobb.

          Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:10

          Lobb is also a good option.

          it wouldn't be the first season i have started with Lobbe

The Ranger · 21/03/2018 at 14:35

UDL, Hartung, Garlett, Mullett, Dow and Kennedy all confirmed to debut.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 15:30

    Cheers. Now to work out who has the JS!!!

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 16:17

    Did you mean Hunter Clarke instead of Hartung or is there another Hartung debuting

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:25

      i guess they mean billy hartung is debuting for a different club.

        The Ranger · 21/03/2018 at 16:38

        Yep. Billy the Whizz at Norf.

          Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:45

          being a hawks fan i had to put up with Billy for a few years. You knew that whenever he had the ball, the next person to have it would an opponent. worst kick in AFL

        WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 17:25

        Maybe but Hunter Clark is playing

          The Ranger · 21/03/2018 at 17:30

          I'm tipping Garlett to be this years Menadue.
          You pick him cos he's cheap and he's got the DPP and then he scores 40something for three games in a row and then misses the next 8 games and then gets a 67 but gets injured and is out for two rounds then he comes back and gets a few more 30's and a 53 and then he's dropped for the rest of the season and you hate yaself again for getting sucked in by small forwards.

            WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 17:37

            He doesn't appear to be the most durable player in the comp and no more SC relevant than the first Garlett at Carlton. I've gone for a non-playing loopholer instead of Garlett

            Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 18:41

            Didn't menadue clock up a 130 at some stage. I may have been dreaming but seem to recall spitting out my cornflakes in shock.

            Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:48

            Menadue became Menapoo, so that means Garlett will become Fartlett

              Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:02

              Solid.

John · 21/03/2018 at 14:52

Any suggestions guys? Thanks.

Def: Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (finlayson, Murphy)

Mid: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Zorko, Fyfe, Cripps, Brodie, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)

Rucks: Ryder, Gawn (Cameron)

Fwd: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Christensen, Fristch, Ryan (Keefe, ZGL)

ProTravo · 21/03/2018 at 15:00

Thoughts on Impey? Usually I'd go with a rookie and hold onto the extra cash but think he has potential.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:04

    Zero thoughts. Like none. As in erase those thoughts.

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 19:10

    Pretty high price for a 60 average Travo, I'd rather punt on Chistensen, McCartin , Fogarty or Stephenson.

Sammy_14 · 21/03/2018 at 15:18

DEF: Laird, Hibbert, Witherden, Coffeild, Murray, Doedee, (Finslayson, Murphy)

RUC: Ryder, GAwn (Olango)

FOR: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Petracca, Stephenson, Fritsch (Venables, Garlett)

Naughton Or Coffield?

Witherden?

    ProTravo · 21/03/2018 at 15:40

    Naughton, doubt Coffield will play. Not confident in Witherden.

gator59 · 21/03/2018 at 15:46

Ok SCoachers I have 2 spots left in a good league called Oceans 14 … code is ….262945… first in best dressed .. good luck

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:24

    am i already in that one gator?

      gator59 · 21/03/2018 at 20:20

      cheers mate

Ajay · 21/03/2018 at 15:49

What do people think of Josh Caddy at $420k? I feel he should at least hold his price with an 80 average. Or should I upgrade to McLean?

Cheers

    Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 15:51

    McLean for me definitely

      KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 16:01

      agreed

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:05

    Agree he'll at least hold his price. But is that what you want? he's in no man's land if he stagnates. No profit, but not near top 8-10 forwards.

Holmesy · 21/03/2018 at 15:54

Anyone else being sucked in by the big beautiful boner they call Riley? Is he a trap or will he average his 80 odd and warrant selection… looks a very composed head on those shoulders

    Jay · 21/03/2018 at 17:24

    Remember Darcy Byrne-Jones? Played a very similar role in his debut and skyrocketed in cash if I recall correctly!

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:07

    Nope not falling for it. Price sucks to put it simply. One quite low score and he's a failure. There's room for error on cheaper players.

Jay · 21/03/2018 at 16:06

The Phantom's Rucks???
Guessing Gawn, Kreuzer, Olango…

    Holmesy · 21/03/2018 at 16:11

    Gawn n goldy

      Suiter · 21/03/2018 at 19:25

      Both have the round 14 bye.

      Suiter · 21/03/2018 at 19:26

      What were his mids Holmes’s?

Tom · 21/03/2018 at 16:13

Podcast getting better fellas, cheers

On the ball · 21/03/2018 at 16:29

Welcome

Whats the community think

DEF : Laird, Hibbo, , Murray, Doedee, Naughton Finlayson,(Stodard Mirra)

Mid: Danger, Martin, Titch, Fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Armitage, Banfield (Barry, Kelly, Holman)

RUC : Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

FWD : Buddy, Heeney, Walters, Petracca, McCartin, Garlett, (Fritsch, Ryan)

Light in Def, recon money will come from there and Mid.

All the best on your teams

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:09

    That's a really nice midfield, nice in general. Risky as in the backline but points will come in from elsewhere.

nbasportsandnews · 21/03/2018 at 16:31

Cripps and Sicily
OR
Coniglio and Hurley

    Starkingdom · 21/03/2018 at 17:18

    Cogs and Hurls.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:10

    Agree Huriglio.

Tom · 21/03/2018 at 16:38

Mills or Ryan for D3?

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 16:51

    Mills starting his third season. Ryan played 11 games. Numbers are in Mills favour.

    Starkingdom · 21/03/2018 at 17:17

    Mills is in a better team and is tempting at his price. I do remember when he was drafted there was a lot of positive talk about his skills and head for footy. He is now at the right age and experience to be the best defender for the Swans.

    Ryan has got talent no doubt about that, also tempting but personally I don't know enough about him so I went with Mills, locked and loaded.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:11

    Above guys are right. Mills is the smart choice.

    I'm backing my gut choice on Ryan. I'm assuming similar feelings are why you are in this conundrum. Go with your gut mate.

    I got pretty good odds on the 100 goal and Brownlow double Jock is paying 3-1.

    Lekdog · 23/03/2018 at 08:43

    I’m a forward pocket player who fakes injuries to get free kicks in AFL 9s, not a great selection sadly

finnigin · 21/03/2018 at 17:28

346424 suits 2100 average type, lots of banter, have a crack

Connor · 21/03/2018 at 17:32

Who averages higher…
1. Savage VS Heeney
2. Bonner VS Christenson

Now before you all jump down my throat hear me out! I know each are different positions but they are relatively similar in price…
Question is – do I select Heeney (F1) & Bonner (D3) OR Savage (D3) & Christenson (F5)
Both cases have Fritsch at F6

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:17

    Wouldn't like to be stuck with that decision. Restructure haha, and avoid the Bonza or Christo.

Dukes · 21/03/2018 at 17:32

Am i crazy starting lycett r2 and cox f6 ? Someone talk me out of it lol

    leedy · 21/03/2018 at 18:10

    Crazy if you don't keep or have a couple of hundred grand spare if it goes wrong. Cox … why? At best he will play as a key forward given Grundy is such a good mobile ruck.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 18:16

    i had a think about it for a day. and couldn't see why i would want to do it. The chances of needing "cover" is low.

    I did think about having Cameron at R2 with Cox at F6 and looping Cameron's score. However collingwood play before Swans the first 4 weeks so that wasn't an option. same with Lycett, pies play before WCE first 4 weeks as well.

    the best option i could see for Cox was just have him at R2. has a good run of games, and his JS is good.

    in the end, i think Lycett has more upside and is cheaper.

      WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 20:07

      I'm thinking about it again. He's only 304k and will be almost the only target in the pies forward line he's tallish and a good mark. Throw in the deep forward hitouts and an ave of 80 is very attainable.
      If I have cox at R2 instead of Stef I can have Hogan at F6 instead of a rookie

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:21

    Yep flying creature in the night's faeces crazy.

    Derek's advice makes a lot of sense here, and even then…..you gonna lock in Lycett?

    People are setting and forgetting this year for good reasons.

    I've tried to make the cheap ruck work, I want Witts for 200K again FFS you brutal SC GODS YOU!

    Sorry guys for the outburst 🙂

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:58

      I have never sat and forgot with my R2.

      You can’t pick the 2 best rucks at the start of the year. No room to bring anyone in.
      Would you pick 8 premium midfielders?

wayne · 21/03/2018 at 17:47

T.Mclean or Siciliy????

    Bottom · 21/03/2018 at 20:05

    mclean

Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 17:50

Who benefits most from no Pittard? Bonner or Howard?

Also, Z Guthrie. Gotta had a bit of JS and be a chance to average 70. Seems value.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 18:09

    another bloke in that price range is Conner Glass, can really kick a footy and he will have a few decent scores this year. mind you i wouldn't touch any of them at that price. Won't make enough cash or points

    Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:23

    Anyone who plays port benefits the most with them short of a Pittard. In supercoach? meh.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2018 at 17:59

Garlett named to play 2mrw night.

Mid/fwd swing on mid bench or go with someone who may score more like barry with no DPP?

Thoughts??

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:12

    My thought exactly Trigga…tough one cause it's always good to have one swing there, I put Garlett fwd and Banfield to mids and am questioning it now.

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:04

      i don't have any of the expensive rookies, so i have a spot in the guts for him.

        Clueless · 21/03/2018 at 19:17

        Not even this years rising star Andy Brayshaw?

          Whatyasmokin · 21/03/2018 at 19:24

          I can see the reasons for it. I never took Taranto or that other fellow and never regretted it. 200K is an awkward price for a first year player.

          WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 19:54

          Banfield is 70k cheaper and knocked out 96 @3.1 PPM in JLT1 and won a club best and fairest against men last year. Derek might have him instead

        Defying_Madness · 21/03/2018 at 19:43

        Not even Naughton Derek?

          Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:54

          Ok. I have Naughton. Good player

            Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:04

            Langdon named so there is another fwd option if you start Garlett in the guts.

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 19:52

    Will Barry play round 1 Trigga? He laid a brick in JLT2

Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 17:59

Anyone prepared to take this year's biggest risk, start Nicnat???!!!!!!

    Gonna kruez past him 😁

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 18:06

    he isn't cheap enough. i really thought he would have been under $400k this year.

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:21

    Not when Nanktank is only a bit more in price.

      Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 18:34

      Yea true. Nank looks great value. He should improve his average to 95-100. Is underpriced. Trying to decide if he is a better pick than Kruzer. More durable, certainly.

        Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:37

        Could be this year Rick…Never know when one of Kreuze's old injuries will resurface either.

    Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 20:56

    Goldy for me. Preuss won't play

Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:05

Coniglio or Brodie its not like for like just wondering if l go Brodie l start with $280k in the kitty if l start with Coniglio hell be a stepping stone??

    Finnius · 21/03/2018 at 18:21

    Don't leave 300k no where when it could be points straight away. You get at least 30ppg with picking Coniglio – definitely worth the cash

      Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 18:36

      Unless Cogs gets a tagging role. I feel he's a trap. Hope I'm wrong….well, actually I don't. He'll probably be a gun.

        Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:01

        no-one has been in and out of my team as much as Coniglio this pre-season.

        there is just so much talent in the GWS midfield i don't want to have Kelly and Coniglio.

        For me, he isn't a keeper. nor will he make a truck-load of cash.

          Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:07

          Definitely not a keeper but a stepping stone. Early pts generation maybe in a somewhat easy first half draw. Then to a fallen premium around the byes?

          Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:09

          I'm going Kelly and Whitfield, cause Whitfield will be half back.

Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:09

I've got no DPP mid/fwd in my mids…is that an issue early on or should I put Garlett back in there?, I moved him fwd to get Banfield in.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2018 at 18:11

    Is there an echo in here? Hehe

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:13

      Hehe, yeah just saw and posted in yours lol, so what should we do Trig?

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2018 at 18:18

        Im considering starting fogarty and stevenson fwd so will probably go with garlett in mids to create swingers.

          Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:19

          Will Fog get punted as soon as Spud Walker gets back in you reckon?

            Derek · 21/03/2018 at 18:57

            depends on how he plays. i can see him filling a tall defensive role as well. Maybe lever's role if doedee isn't any good

              Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 19:00

              Cheers Derek, think I'll give him a run, just hope he doesn't become an 'only 3 gamer'

Laird, Hibberd, Coffield, Naughton, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee, Mirra.

Danger, Mitchell, Zorko, Merrett, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Brodie, Kelly, Banfield, Barry, Holman.

Kruze, Gawn. Olango.

Heeney, Billings, Lambert, McLean, Petracca, Fogarty, Fritsch, Ryan.

    pretty solid team there Rick.

    I'm not a big fan on the expensive rookies. You have 5. lets see what they give us tomorrow.

    Kruze is $603k. that is a lot of 'k's"

      Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 19:26

      Yea I'm thinking Nank is a better pick. He's been in and out.

      True about the pricey rooks. Will see what is on offer and possibly roll with one ultra $$ def with a couple of $400kers

        Derek · 21/03/2018 at 19:52

        I like Hibbo, but just too exp.

        I’m looking like starting with Laird, Shaw and Mills

          neil demons delight · 21/03/2018 at 20:06

          Shaw and Laird have the round 14 bye

          Rick Grimes · 21/03/2018 at 20:06

          Isn't Laird more expensive than Hibbo?

1man1Team · 21/03/2018 at 18:34

Is hartlett worthy this year

My backs look like
Laird, Simpson, Hurn, Hartlett, Sicily, Murray (finlayson, Doedee)

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 18:40

    No mate can't see him being a good pick, Hurn as well, I'd rethink those two, Maybe grab another rookie like Naughton in there instead of one of them and spend the money somewhere else or get another premo in the backs.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 18:47

    not sure hartlett was ever SC relevent.

    I don't mind Hurn. I had him in my Draft team last year and he was very good. Will hold his price and have the occasional good score. WCE defense will see plenty of the ball this year. For $20k more i would prefer M'Govern ahead of Hurn.

Defying_Madness · 21/03/2018 at 18:35

O'Shea is not playing get him out of your teams

    GloryDays90 · 21/03/2018 at 18:45

    Don't think Coffield will either.

        Steve · 21/03/2018 at 20:42

    belly button fluff · 21/03/2018 at 19:26

    I dunno mate. I'm a bombers supporter and love McGrath, but just watched a replay of the JLT game with gee and I still think he would still prefer to hang back a little. He will make himself get in there but I feel he has to force himself whereas Marchbank just shoves himself in the action naturally. Next year for McGrath or later this year. I'm not picking March either but out of those two I'd go March.

JJK might be out until R4, who's the big men playing up front ?

    Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 19:59

    Darling? And Lycett I suppose

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 20:05

    Ryan's a big man when he jumps 10 feet in the air 🙂

    Northerner · 21/03/2018 at 21:55

    That’s the role Waterman will play and if he fails they will bring in McInnes. So stay clear of Waterman as he may not play again once JJK is back and he and Darling stay fit all year.

    Patch was incorrect on the podcast when he called Waterman a small forward. He was captain of one of the teams that played the grand final morning prospective draftees match in his draft year and he played key forward.

      WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 22:36

      I agree. at 190cm and 94kg Waterman is not a small forward. But he is a better footballer than Lycett & McInnes combined just a bit inexperienced at the moment which why the eagles will give him every opportunity even after JJK comes back in round 9. I hope

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:01

      Think Robbo's a Saints supporter Mo

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:08

      Here ya go Mo…
      Danger, Kelly, Fyfe,Cripps,Coniglio, Andrew Brayshaw, Brodie, T.Kelly—H.Clark, Banfield, Holman

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/03/2018 at 20:07

    No way Rusttyyy! That side is a dogs breakfast. Robbo will unveil (AT THE LAST MINUTE) his new look side tomorrow night. He is just playing head games with that team. If not, well, then I think he has some serious issues. LOL

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:02

      I know right?…hahah has he gone bonkers or something?

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 22:43

    I saw something looking just like that fall out of the ar$e of a cow on the weekend

      Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 23:09

      Hehe, could be a decoy side as Tophawk said…to throw us off the trail we don't care about.

    michael · 21/03/2018 at 23:30

    Robbo doesn't pass the flog test

TOPHAWK1 · 21/03/2018 at 19:54

OK Here is my latest team pre the team drops tomorrow. Nearly there. And yes, will start Dangerfield after today's upbeat news about his hammy.

Laird, M Hibberd, Naughton, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee (Keeffe, Murphy/Mihocek)

Dangerfield, Mitchell, Z Merrett, Fyfe, Parker, Cripps, Brayshaw, Brodie (Banfield, T Kelly, Holman)

Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

Heeney, Billings, D Smith, Petracca, J Trengove, Fritsch (L Ryan J Garlett)

Three expensive rooks which is my limit every year, and the others in the 102-123K range. Couple of PODS in Luke Parker and Jackson Trengove in the forward line. Parker looks beastly and Trengove is going to do some serious ruck work for the dogs and looks in good form. Expect him to score very consistently around the 80-90 mark this year. Side still a bit cookie cutter, but I am confident I can get more creative as the season unfolds.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 20:13

    Don’t mind Tregrove. Only has 5 other ruckman at the dogs against him.

    I’m looking at Lobb at F5

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/03/2018 at 20:29

      I like Trengove as he did almost all ruck work for the dogs in both JLT games and got plenty of pozzies, and kicked goals in both games.. Scored 80 and 100 odd and I reckon the dogs recruited him to do just that. Plenty of ruck work and kick a few goals to boot. If he can average 80-90 in the first half of the season then its job done as far as I am concerned. Dont touch Lobb or Lobbe Derek! Did that name not burn you beyond recognition a few seasons ago? Just kidding around. Lobb is definately an option. But at 50 K less, Trengove I can squeeze in without uprooting my team structure. Cheers mate.

        hedski · 21/03/2018 at 20:33

        Gday Toppa, pretty sure Jordan Roughead is primed to come back in round one, not sure if he played JLT but something to look out for.

          TOPHAWK1 · 21/03/2018 at 20:41

          G'day Hedski! Back for another season mate. Its gonna be another great ride. If Roughead is named tomorrow it will give me something else to ponder over a beer tomorrow nite. Thanks for the heads up!

            hedski · 21/03/2018 at 20:47

            No worries mate, looking fwd to taking you on again, in a couple of leagues with you, bring on the footy, good luck for the season bud.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:16

    Hey Hawk, im thinking Keefee Murphy or Mihocek wont be there rd 1?

Snowball · 21/03/2018 at 20:01

Once again I have 5 mid/fwds in my fwd line like I have other years but this year I can’t identify with any confidence a cheap mid/fwd to wack into my mids for the swing as I can’t see Garlett lasting too long.
So, I won’t have one and hope I pick a viable one up who plays a coupke of strong successive games. If Garlett for example does well in his first two games I’ll grab him.
Thoughts anyone.

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 20:10

    You can always go with Higgins. He will get games

      Snowball · 21/03/2018 at 22:31

      Well he certainly didn’t get the first one! Derek. One could say that the vast majority of the rookies will get games.

Steeeve · 21/03/2018 at 20:08

No Soldo, good news for Nank owners. I'm still unsure, might go with Nic Nat yet

J.Bronson · 21/03/2018 at 20:10

If some guys or girls could share their thoughts on my line up. THink im 100% set

Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, L Murphy)
Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Merrett, Coniglio, Angus Brayshaw, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Barry, Holman)
Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)
Heeney, Billings, Robbie Gray, Caddy, Bell, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)
?

    The Chef · 21/03/2018 at 20:19

    Looking good J, my only real concern is Caddy, always fires out the blocks in the preseason but never lives up to it in the regular season, tread with caution! I'm not sold on Dow either but he definitely could come good. I'm a big fan of the Merrett selection!

Dermin8r · 21/03/2018 at 21:17

I cannot decide which Bulldog to use to round out my midfiled, what do the experts think – Jack Macrae or The Bont?
Thank you in advance.

    dontblushbaby · 21/03/2018 at 22:09

    Neither for me, both won't be in the Top 8 at year end , but I'd go Bont if I had a choice

      Derek · 21/03/2018 at 22:28

Looking forward to tomorrow night. Feedback on team would be great.

Fearthebeard · 21/03/2018 at 21:22

Excuse me my dear community!!!! :

Luke Ryan, Will Brodie, Toby Greene,

Or

Savage, Garlett, Billings

I can take Billings in first option too if everyone thinks better pick overall?

So billing’s or Greene?

Savage and Garlett or Luke Ryan and Brodie???

Last locks please ya knowledgeable bastards!!

    Northerner · 21/03/2018 at 21:47

    Second option. Much lower on the flog meter

    Northerner · 21/03/2018 at 21:49

    Billings, Brodie, Ryan if that works

Jordan · 21/03/2018 at 21:22

Finlayson and Hutchings
Or
Fogarty (Adelaide) and bonner?

I know they are both bloody shit options but I do need to have one stepping stone in my team. If I went with option 1 Hutchings would be f5 and Finlayson at d4…
If I go with option 2 I would have Fogarty at f5 and bonner at d4..

Thoughts????

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:33

    I like option 2 Jordan, Gotta hope Fogarty keeps his place with the ex mullett coming back, and I'm giving Bonner a go too, think he could stay there long enough to make money..and score well.

    Northerner · 21/03/2018 at 21:46

    Just to confuse you, I think Hutchings is actually a decent pick. IMO he’s a better option than Christensen and Bell. And Finlayson has much better job security than Fogarty. Could be a combination that’s sets you apart from the pack.

    I know there’s been a lot of noise about the West Coast FWD rookies being low scorers. I believe Venables will be a very good pick this year. He’ll probably take a little longer to adjust and be a slower burn than some, but will grow into the season. They want to invest in him as an extra midfielder and he’s got some great traits. Just needs some time to get comfortable and learn how to find more of the ball. I also think we will get a 4 goal haul from Ryan and that will give him a price jump. He did some nice things in the JLT that he just didn’t finish off which if he had he would have scored OK. He also laid a cracking bump that showed he’s got a bit of grunt.

    Something to consider.

    Good luck.

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 22:39

    Nothing wrong with cash in the bank instead of a stepping stone Jordan. Then you would be deciding which potatoe is the least spuddish

Hurley OR Hibberd

KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 21:33

Have $127k in the bank do i upgrade Devon smith to someone better or keep the cash?

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 21:34

    I'd keep it…Smith could do well this year, new team and midfield time..Bombers could go well too.

      KSinny · 21/03/2018 at 21:36

      Cheers mate!

    WoW_Trevor · 21/03/2018 at 22:41

    Yes upgrade Smith to a discounted Premo Midfielder

Sam · 21/03/2018 at 21:39

Hurley or Hib
IS Rayner good pick

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 22:44

    personally hibbered and alot of people have rayner as he will get games but i think he wont generate much cash

Jim · 21/03/2018 at 21:54

Footy season Eve panic

Hibberd or Hurley?
Kelly or Dusty?
Petracca or or

    Derek · 21/03/2018 at 22:25

    Hibbo is good, bit expensive though. Hurley not sure will repeat what he did last year especially with Godard playing in defence, might not even be top 6 imo.

    Dusty is very good at football, even better than Kelly is. His big problem is r14 bye the same as many other keepers including Dangerfield. I would go Dusty but decided on TMitch because of his bye.

    Petracca’s scoring well will depend on his role. I’m not convinced he will get much midfield time, maybe swing with Oliver when he ‘rests’ forward. Devon or Barlow are both genuine midfielders, I would look at them first. Even Lobb or Trengove who will both get good rucking minutes could be better bets.

      JohnDJ59 · 21/03/2018 at 23:27

      With Viney out for up to five weeks I think Track will get enough mid time,at the start anyway.

      Nathan · 21/03/2018 at 23:32

      Kane Lambert is also a genuine mid with forward status

Nigel · 21/03/2018 at 21:56

I only have room for one!!
Brayshaw
Brodie
Dow
LDU
Hunter Clark

Who do i go with?!?!

    Ja191 · 21/03/2018 at 22:07

    Out of Brodie or Bradshaw. Brayshaw will score more problem is do you trust Ross Lyon

      Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 22:33

      flip a coin with brayshaw and brodie

Tommo09 · 21/03/2018 at 22:07

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 22:33

    Would downgrade one of the high priced mids to Holman and maybe swap one to Brodie as they will both get games and time in the goldcoast midfield

ThatsGoldJerry · 21/03/2018 at 22:13

Hi everyone, why have so many Coaches jumped of Fogarty ? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 22:23

    Jumped off or jumped on?…he was named to play this week so hope that answers your question.

A couple things I'm not sure about
1. Should I be using Cameron or Olango for loophole? I figure there's going to be rookies that get dropped unexpectedly which can be used as loopholes instead of an r3 and I should be looking for ways to make cash everywhere. But then again Cameron might not play a whole lot himself.
2. Merrett, Crouch, Kelly or Martin? I originally had Oliver in this spot but his little injury scare has put me off him for the time being and I'm not sure who I should replace him with.
3. Is there too much cash in the forward line? I'm also very intrigued by Lobb but not sure yet as he isnt 100% playing.

I appreciate any feedback

    Nathan · 21/03/2018 at 22:48

    Add zorko to that list of mids that I'm considering.

      Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 23:22

      1 wouldnt bother with the loop hole idea yet as you want your rookies playing to generate cash
      2 all those 4 are people i see as being top midfielders and people i want in my team at the end. If you cant fit martin in and still have some cash left over for a corrective trade i would just pick him. if not my order goes kelly, crouch, merrett
      3 i have to gone heavy in the fwds as im not confident in the rookies so i think its fine. Im also looking at lobb if he gets that number one ruck role. the only thing putting me off is no jlt games. i cant see them playing 3 talls and fwd and simpson ruck like they did mummy

Jordan · 21/03/2018 at 23:03

How many rookies are we all running with? I have 7 is that too many?

    leedy · 21/03/2018 at 23:08

    Assuming 7 on the field … same as I. Good Luck.

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 23:10

    6 here Jordan..including Bonner, who technically isn't, but kind of is.

    Nathan · 21/03/2018 at 23:17

    I have 8 on field

James · 21/03/2018 at 23:05

Dusty and dahl
Or
Titchell and billings?

    Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 23:11

    Titch and Billings to start, pick Dusty up when he drops below 500k.

      Nathan · 21/03/2018 at 23:15

      You really reckon he'll drop that low?!

        Russty_ · 21/03/2018 at 23:38

        He usually does Nathan…not sure if he will now that he's a Superstar Brownlow Boy.

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 23:23

    titch and billings not sure on what dahls role will be

    Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 23:46

    Titch an billings. Don’t trust Dahlhaus

Jimmy · 21/03/2018 at 23:39

Hi all, looking for any thoughts/advice on my team

DEF – Yeo, Laird, Hibberd, Naughton, Doedee, Murray (Finlayson, Keeffe)
MID – Danger, Martin, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Stephenson, Barry (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)
RUC – Gawn, Nic Nat (Olango)
FOR – Heeney, Dahlhaus, Smith, Sicily, Fogarty, Ryan (Garlett, Giles-Langdon)

Thinking maybe replace Stephenson with Brodie, put Garlett in the mids for either Barry or Banfield (unsure on job security for both) so that I have MID/FWD swing and then get another rookie on my forward bench, any recommendations?
Good luck to all for 2018!

    Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 23:53

    Not real keen on Stephenson at all jimmy. Maybe look at Brodie. I think banfields JS is better Barry is trying to break into a strong port team who just recruited a lot of depth over the off-season. Also not sold on yeo he struggles when playing through the guts he showed that after his bye last season. He’s a gun off halfback though! Fingers crossed that is where they play him all season. I think there is better value for his price mate. Other than that I like your side. Good luck for 2018 jimmy

      Jimmy · 22/03/2018 at 00:01

      Cheers for the feedback Mav, very much appreciated. Have made the rookie moves and am also unsure on starting with Yeo, changing him for another premo defender or getting a rookie like Murphy in. Then I could upgrade Fog to Petracca in the Forwards and Brodie to Coniglio. Too many decisions before the season starts!

Maverick · 21/03/2018 at 23:44

Rnd 1 eve and is cramming SuperCoach. Never wiseits when mistakes are made!
Does everyone like option A or B better?

A) lobb, Oliver & Barry

B) christenson, libba & coniglio

    Gord29 · 21/03/2018 at 23:49

    would go option 2 (teams havent been annouced) as lobb is yet to play and unsure if he gets the number 1 ruck role, also not sure barry will get picked

    Defying_Madness · 21/03/2018 at 23:53

    1 if they all play

      Maverick · 22/03/2018 at 00:04

      Yeah good call on availability guys. Let’s change option A to walters, Oliver & constable/Barry… which now

        Gord29 · 22/03/2018 at 00:23

        would personally go walters and oliver as i see them as 2 keepers

Cheers community!

    Maverick · 22/03/2018 at 00:13

    yeo is a huge risk. If he is going to play midfield like he did post bye and JLT his scores will drop off and overpriced u need him to play off the HB. Personally I’d drop him down to naughton with the dogs having a decimated defence they will try pump 22 games into him and his JLT was very solid! With that cash upgrade Clarke or Stephenson to a premium mid. Laird savage and Wilson are a solid enough d1-3 with so many cows down back. Also coffield didn’t make the saints 22 only Clarke I believe mate. Just watch that closely I may be wrong.

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 01:21

    Getting close?…you're not having a wank are ya? lol…sorry don't like the Yeo, Savage and Grundy ,Dahlhaus picks , and no Danger is dangerous! Reckon you need an extra scorer in the fwd line.
    Too many expensive rookies in the mids also in my humble opinion. You've got 800 grand in rookies in the mids, without kelly and Holman….not good. Get some cheaper fellas who will play.
    Sorry if I seem harsh but having all those high priced rookies in your mids is a recipe for disaster..you'll be lucky to make enough money out of the ones who do keep their job to upgrade, need some cheaper ones in there.

Would love the community feedback and especially some input from the WOW_ brothers.

Def: laird, savage, mills, bonnner, naughton, doedee (Murray finlayson)

Mid: danger, Oliver, Mitchell, zerrett, Fyfe, brayshaw, Brodie & banfield (kelly holman & Barry)

Ruck: Gawn & nank (olango)

Fwd: Walters, lambert, McLean, smith, Sicily, fritsch (ryan Garlett)

Also flirtin with the idea of Walters, Oliver & Barry being
Coniglio, libba & christenson. Just feel coniglio and libba May really go nuts up to the byes they are both proven scorers.

Thoughts??

    Gord29 · 22/03/2018 at 00:36

    solid team maverick. I hear what you are saying about libba and cogs i currently have cogs in my team but i dont see cogs, libba or christenson being keepers were walters and oliver are

      Gord29 · 22/03/2018 at 00:56

      I have just put them both in my team to get kruz in the rucks for nank now hahaha

        Maverick · 22/03/2018 at 01:03

        I’m so tempted to run cogs & libba… gee it’s very very tempting. but u have the valid point of Walters and Oliver being keepers where as they are not but definitely have the ability to average 95+ and make some quick $$$

          Gord29 · 22/03/2018 at 01:07

          running them allows me to pick kruzer over nank which im liking alot seeing gawn and krezer and the rucks. for me its kruz and libba v nank and merret

            Dean · 23/03/2018 at 19:27

            Yeah and Kruzer scored 74 while Nank scored 95 OUCH!!!

              Gord29 · 24/03/2018 at 03:52

              its along season and for nank to not reach 100 with krezuer off so much doesnt spell hes a top ruckman to me

    Russty_ · 22/03/2018 at 01:13

    Not a Wow brother but forget Savage and pick someone good like Hibberd or Hurley, the rest of your side looks fine.

      Maverick · 22/03/2018 at 01:19

Tossing between Krez & Libba or Nank & Merrett.
Tempted to drop Walters down to Lobb also

Howe, Sicily, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Keffe, OConnor)

Danger, Zorko,Crouch, Fyfe, Cogs, Libba, Brayshaw, Brodie (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)

Worried about my F5 and lack of mid forward swing. Is it worth looking at Stephenson in the mids?????
Christensen or Tom Bell????

Thanks guys

Johnno · 22/03/2018 at 07:08

Tom Mitchell or Dustin Martin? Had dusty in all pre-season, but parker has found his way into my team for bont, that would leave 4 premo mids with the round 14 bye

    Least confident with Franklin and Lloyd.

      SC_Seer · 22/03/2018 at 15:46

      Will be munching doughnuts with poor rookie JS in the forward line.

Bombersbouncing · 22/03/2018 at 08:45

I think I might be TOO HEAVY in the Mids – do I need FYFE now!!!!

    Moz · 22/03/2018 at 09:28

    Yes get fyfe now. His price will increase

      Bombersbouncing · 22/03/2018 at 09:35

      For Martin??? Not having Martin and Danger would give me some targets to uptrade to….

OK, here is my team that I hope will get me through the first several rounds with some (hopefully) strong scoring premiums and cash cow rookies, any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers.

Still 96.8 k in bank

Hoping this team will get me off to a good start.

Lloyd enthusiast · 22/03/2018 at 11:06

Not many teams with Jake Lloyd

Is there a reason? Has been one of the only players who hasn’t moved from my team since SuperCoach opened

    ProTravo · 22/03/2018 at 12:02

    I asked the same question. Apparently with McVeigh back in the side his numbers have been dropping off. Although i'm not convinced it will stay that way. McVeigh is getting on a bit and Lloyd has room to improve.

    Bells · 22/03/2018 at 18:25

    Was under injury cloud coming in and the McV thing – there are so many guys in that run out of defence role for Sydney now – role could chop and change….dunno. Shark move, or too risky?

Dan · 22/03/2018 at 11:27

Havent seen these 2 play yet.

L.Ryan (WCE) or Z.Giles-Langdon?

LHMORWOOD · 22/03/2018 at 11:42

Kruezer and Coniglio
or
Parker/Bont/Cripps and Goldstein

    FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 11:43

    Option 1 for me.

    Jimbob · 22/03/2018 at 12:35

    Yeah cant go past kruezer, and coniglio is looking very good this a great inclusion Option 1

FearTheBeard · 22/03/2018 at 11:43

Luke Ryan & Garlett or Savage & Brodie?

    martin · 22/03/2018 at 12:34

    gotta have the savage

Spiro · 22/03/2018 at 11:46

Ben taberner ?? F4 option?? What are the thoughts

    Blueth · 22/03/2018 at 17:39

    Not quite sure how to approach this one

Bob Butter · 22/03/2018 at 12:45

Panic stations lads! Feel free to rip into my team a bit. Also considering downgrading Kruezer to Nic Nat and upgrading Lloyd to Hurley if Nic Nat is named. Tell me i'm crazy and put an end to this madness. And yes, I am aware of the lack of FWD-MID swing, but i really like these mid rookies and the offerings down forward are shite.

DEF
Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson, (Keefe, Mihocek)

MID
Dusty, Titch, Zerret, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Holman (Banfield, Kelly, Barry)

RUCK
Kruezer, Gawn (Cameron)

FWD
Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Frisch, Ryan, (Garlett, Giles-Langdon)

    Corso · 22/03/2018 at 16:11

    Wouldn’t risk it with Nic Nat. I’m personally starting Ryder and then reassessing at his round 10 bye.

Nick · 22/03/2018 at 12:47

Whitfield, Cripps, Shiel, Parker at M5 ?

Already have COGS and Kelly from GWS but they look so good up there.

therealsharkmove · 22/03/2018 at 12:47

Talk the talk league has been created for those that like to talk there team up before a ball has been bounced.
Do you look at your team and think it's unbeatable. Then join. No high previous rank required, just a strong belief (even unjustified) in your team.
Sc_wow and Sc66 I'll make sure their is a spot vacant for you two and your great advice. League code 900037

Derek · 22/03/2018 at 12:52

I need the Panic Room. I have some Panicing to do

    hedski · 22/03/2018 at 13:06

    I will start when half our rookies aren't named this arvo.

      Derek · 22/03/2018 at 13:34

      Coniglio has been in and out of my team 10 times already today. I want him for his value, but he will be a trade. I keep swapping him with Kelly, the extra cash really improves the team.

        Liam · 22/03/2018 at 13:40

        Coniglio is just to good a value to pass up.
        I’m using him as my stepping stone to Danger, he won’t make a huge amount of coin but add the cash gen with the points scored I think it’s a great pick.

          Derek · 22/03/2018 at 14:14

          He is the poor mans Kelly.

murray · 22/03/2018 at 13:10

mcgovern in the backline OR
Mclean in the fwd line,

which one is the better option

    Harry · 22/03/2018 at 13:20

    Mclean

Jeffrey · 22/03/2018 at 13:35

In need for a solid mid priced forward. I've already got sicilly, tracca and Smith

    Jeffrey · 22/03/2018 at 13:35

    Trading out Rayner… Is that a good move ?

    Derek · 22/03/2018 at 17:54

    i really like Barlow. Will get plenty of time in guts. No Ablett. Hall missing for a few weeks. Super easy draw (even though mainly away games) for their first 9 games. You could do alot worse. less than 2% of teams

Ben · 22/03/2018 at 14:56

Ryder and Sicily

or

Nank and Petracca?

    Rambo · 22/03/2018 at 18:19

    Ryder and Sicily (given you have Darcy Cameron on the ruck bench for cover in Ryder's bye.

NoLanguage · 22/03/2018 at 14:58

Giles-Landon or Garlett???

    NoLanguage · 22/03/2018 at 14:59

    And Christensen or Bell???

Thoughts?

dontblushbaby · 22/03/2018 at 18:36

DANGER OUT

    Bells · 22/03/2018 at 19:21

    Grrr – my considered plan is look down the board and pick the next highest price guy I don't have.
    Welcome my team Kellysan.
    No idea how I get Danger back in quick? How do you pick a guy at 700k with a possible hammy????
    I can't get in Gablett, too injury prone, and surely not worth burning a trade on the upgrade in a week or two as Lek suggests?

Tommo09 · 22/03/2018 at 18:37

With Danger out, I like the look of Rockliff

Go with Rocky or play it safe with Dusty?

How do u do emergency loophole again with danger?

    belly button fluff · 22/03/2018 at 22:45

    Are you wanting to get a score from one of your subs that has already played? If so just leave Danger on field and emergency the player. If you are wanting Dusty's score as VC and have Danger make Danger captain on field.
    If you haven't got a sub who has played yet- make sure you choose a player that plays before any other and Danger to make as an emergency. HTH
    😀

      belly button fluff · 22/03/2018 at 22:48

      I have just put Olonga on field as captain to get Dusty's VC score.

redgumwon · 22/03/2018 at 20:46

Anyone else having trouble with the Herald Sun site?

Dean · 22/03/2018 at 22:35

With very few genuine rookies in the FWD line, I have Garlett in my Midfield and am now contemplating bringing in Ahern so I can bring in Garlett as a Forward emergency.

Happy with Dusty VC & Cripps score and Danger still comes in handy as Captain.

Just a query anyone else considering bringing in Ahern in the forward line, in order to bring Garlett into the FWD?

Frank · 23/03/2018 at 06:40

    FearTheBeard · 23/03/2018 at 11:21

    Need a bloke not playing to be able to put on field and make Captain and the vice captain on someone who has played wiwth good score.

    Then put the person on the bench as emergency to make sure he covers the non playing person.

    Make sense?

Stupid Coach · 23/03/2018 at 13:10

Greetings community

Would love to know whether to keep Danger, leave the captain on him and put the VC on Kelly or if I should trade him to Titch and try and bring Danger in once he has played 3 games and I have a better idea on whether his price will go up or down. Also, I missed out on Dusty and Cripps. Have gone with Kelly, Zorko, Neale, Bont and Cogniglio as my other midfielders. Should I stick with them or do I replace Bont with Parker.

Any thoughts/comments much appreciated.

    Coz311 · 23/03/2018 at 14:08

    Your mids are fine. I'd keep Danger and bank on him playing next week.

Coz311 · 23/03/2018 at 14:06

Heeney or Greene Help!!

I have been bloody lucky with my on field rookie selection this week having the following rookies play:
Holman 96, Doedee 86, Finlayson 87, T Kelly 118, Fritsch 60 my worst was Naughton 25 and he is the only rookie I have thats over $123,900

Scoring 2205 with just Heeney to play so im hoping to score around 2300 which will be my best Round 1 score.

How is everyone else scoring?

Plenty 2300+ scores this round with Buddy, Parker going huge in the last game of round 1 and what an interesting round it was. Those who avoided Kruzer, Ryder, Zerrit and to a lesser extent Libba apart from Lekdog done quite well, however those who selected a couple or a few of them are in some serious strife.

Cripps or Oliver?
