An actual quote from my team reveal the other week:

“I don’t think he (Laird) can hurt me by not having him in the same way not having Docherty did.” Then Friday night happened…

I’m actually trying out a new strategy this year of hitting absolute rock bottom early because I can only go up from there, right? Right…? *furious whispering* Patch has just informed me that he has hit rock bottom loads of times and no, it does not work like that. Should be a fun year then!

Round 1 was a bit of a mixed bag. Some absolutely massive scores came from members of the Community, an outstanding effort when you consider 6-7 of those were on field rookies. For others, no Danger was always going to suck but he’ll be ready to rock and/or roll this week. Kruze rucking against Grigg was a laugh until he got hurt. Ryder’s achilles injury will force owners into an early trade. Zerrett getting knocked out didn’t help. Zorko put in an absolute stinker and those who put the C on Fyfe wouldn’t have been impressed. I’ve seen teams suck before but the Doggies need to lift in round 2 if they expect to be contenders in 2018.

If you copped a whack in round 1 remember there is a loooooong way to go. Still another week before league games kick off so unless there’s a really pressing issue with your team   (like a Ryder/Libba LTI, or the .8% of coaches that have Docherty for some reason?) I wouldn’t be looking at trading this week. Give your rookies another week, if they make it to round 3 when the price changes start you can be pretty confident of their job security moving forward. Also, don’t be that guy that trades out Nat Fyfe?!?!! #FyfeIsLyfe

THE NEWS

We’ve currently got four confirmed rookies this round. Mitch Crowden; a 117.3k MID/FWD, Adam Cerra – MID – $184.8k, Ed Richards – 135.3k DEF, and Cam O’Shea – DEF – $166k.

Willie Rioli – FWD – $123.9k, Ben Ronke – FWD – $123.9k, Jack Henry – FWD – $123.9k, and Brayden Ainsworth – MID – $117.3k have all been named for Sunday / Monday. If any of these four are confirmed to debut I’ve missed the memo, double check when Sunday teams are confirmed tomorrow night.

For tonight, Adelaide have kept their three debutants from round 1 in Doedee, Fogarty, and Murphy, as well as welcoming back Tex Walker. The Tiges have lost Vlastuin to a delayed concussion but regain Houli.

Friday night footy will give Saints v North – which is probably only exciting if you are a fan of either. Neither side has made changes.

Saturday sees season debuts for Aaron Hall, Matt Scharenburg, Tom Scully and Stephen Hill. Mason Cox is amongst the outs but there’s really nothing SuperCoach relevant about those omitted. Ross Lyon has kept Brayshaw and Banfield in the team despite the two new debutants.

On Sunday, Libba, Crozier, and Ryder make way because of injuries. Robbie Gray and Tom Boyd are the big name inclusions. McKenzie and Trengove could make their debut in Port Adelaide colours

Patrick Dangerfield and Nakia Cockatoo have been named by Geelong. Hawthorn have added four players, Marc Pittonet have a nice JLT series so we’ll see if he can play some games for the Hawks this year.

There’s been no big name rookie culls, Community. You can breathe a sigh of relief in what is a somewhat short ‘news’ section

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

With Post_MaSloane smashing it on Wednesday with his captain’s write-up, space has opened up in the Panic Room for a new segment. The best idea I’ve got is to open myself up to ridicule by highlighting player/s that you need to consider, only to watch them go down in flames horribly in the next round.

“I just don’t trust that guy”

Straight up, I wouldn’t be looking at trading this round. Don’t go chasing rookie s

cores, or that midpricer that scored well this week. Give it another week and wait until they are on the bubble. However, the 12% of coaches that took a punt on Ryder will need to trade. He’ll be out for 4-6 weeks with his achilles blowing up which is far too long for him to sit on your bench. So what do you do?

If you would like to keep your bye structure you’ve only got one option. Jarrod Witts had 25 disposals (21 kicks), 34 hitouts, 7 clearances and 5 tackles on his way to a mammoth 131SC Saturday night. Yes the wet weather did mean there were more stoppages, but a man that stands 209cm has no right to score 131 in what was essentially a pool. He’s seemingly got the first choice ruck position sewn up at Gold Coast.

Goldy and Stef Martin are also good options, but the threat of Preuss and Archie hanging over them makes me nervous. Nic Nat flashed the talent we all know he has, scoring 113 from only 54% TOG. However, that was against Sinclair, and he’s said that his game time will continue to be restricted in the coming weeks.

Need a few more recommendations? Damo is on cheat sheet duties this year and his first one is definitely worth a look right here.

THE UPSIDE DOWN

The information will be turned up to Eleven (heh) as the all-important breakevens will return next week. Barron is dropping his reserves articles again this year and they are much better than anything I can do. If you haven’t already, have a look here

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

It’s Grand Final rematch time! In case Barron has forgotten, Richmond won the last time these two teams met by a cool 48 points. Dusty kicked 2 and had 29 touches, Laird had 27 himself and rumour has it there’s still an imprint of Matt Crouch on the half forward flank of the MCG after Jacob Townsend buried him there on the cusp of half time.

Fantasy Insider has crunched the numbers and come up with the “ideal” lineup for tonight’s clash.

As an eager player of DFS (but not always the best!), here’s a few other selections to consider for your entry.

Toby Nankervis – RUC – $12,650: Big Sauce typically bosses Nank in the ruck (49 and 50 hitouts in his past two games v Richmond), but as we saw last week Nank offers much more around the ground. At almost 2k cheaper I don’t mind paying down in this position.

Paul Seedsman – MID/DEF – $11,400: Pay up for Laird if you like as he enjoys playing against the Tiges (averages 28 disposals in his past 3 v Richmond) but The Seed got the job done last week. Likes a tackle and prefers to kick it – both great for DS scoring.

Jack Graham – MID – $11,550: God I love him. 87DS last week on the back of 13 (THIRTEEN) tackles. If he gets his hands on the ball a bit more his ceiling is huge. Worth a punt I reckon

One of Richmond’s mosquito fleet forwards typically goes off, although neither Butler or Castagna have great recent records against the Crows. Bolton was a disaster last week so I’m not going there again. Mr Brightside himself, Jack Riewoldt – FWD – $11,150, saluted for 100DS last week. Will probably get Talia in a tough matchup, but his forward pressure means he doesn’t need to rely on kicking a bag to score well.

That’s the Panic Room for done another week folks! What are your plans for this week? Trades? Captains? Jump in the comments and tell us what you think!

I guess I can reverse trade but Ryder to Witts or NicNat?

    BloodyFranklin · 29/03/2018 at 19:46

    NicNat… coz of the hair

    Finnius · 29/03/2018 at 19:54

    you can't reverse trade anymore…

      StevoRivo · 29/03/2018 at 20:24

      Oops. Guess Nic Nat it is!

    SC_Kev7 · 29/03/2018 at 19:56

    The rolling lockout is still in place, Post, but if you make a trade now you can’t reverse it

BloodyFranklin · 29/03/2018 at 19:40

WOOP WOOP

    Bells · 29/03/2018 at 23:20

    Dat's da sound of da Police !

Porkies · 29/03/2018 at 19:42

Naughton to O’Shea ??

    BloodyFranklin · 29/03/2018 at 19:45

    Nah

    Krups · 29/03/2018 at 19:52

    Nope

    BadgerHoney7 · 30/03/2018 at 10:31

    make a call after round 3 on that one, o'shea still has 2 weeks and for me naughton is on the bench, don't wanna change rookies at this stage.

    Stirlsy · 30/03/2018 at 13:19

    Wait a week

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 13:45

    Can't trust either on field atmo Porkies so like badgerhoney said Naughton will increase in price the week before O'Shea so you can take the $5.25 price increase profit for Naughton and then downgrade to O'Shea

      Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 15:01

      I just checked the numbers – he'll need to score about 49-50 to hold his current price. 😀

Hoot · 29/03/2018 at 19:45

Go Blues!

Saundo · 29/03/2018 at 20:15

Cripps or Oliver?

    Paul · 29/03/2018 at 20:30

    Yes

      Paul · 29/03/2018 at 20:30

      Lol

        Saundo · 29/03/2018 at 20:32

        Are you retarded?

          Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 20:40

          He probably means..both Saundo, maybe Cripps first..save a da money, and a beast.

Gazza · 29/03/2018 at 20:26

Should I trade Keeffe to Bonner this round or next round?

Pros R2 – If i trade Bonner in now I gain an extra 40-60 points and have two trades for next round in case of injuries

Pros R3 – If Bonner goes bad I can trade Keeffe to someone else but if Bonner goes well i can trade Keeffe to Bonner anyway

    redherringfc · 29/03/2018 at 21:34

    hold. Keeffe is an emergency so he may be close. See what happens in teams next week. you may have an injury ext week, so you can bring Boner in anyway. Keeffee may get a run.

    It’s a big call saying extra 40-60. Who goes to the bench if you bring Boner in?

      redherringfc · 29/03/2018 at 21:37

      Sorry, realised it’s Bonner. Keeffe kept stealing those double letters.

Defying_Madness · 29/03/2018 at 20:34

Murphy on the bench with the emergency, keep going son so I can take Naughton off.

Finnius · 29/03/2018 at 20:37

Lachy Murphy star!! If he gets an eighty odd he will make so much dosh at that price.

    Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 20:46

    He's a hard working player, and has the right attitude, will be a future star.

      The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:13

      Naughton down to Murphy might be a nice correction

    Bells · 29/03/2018 at 23:36

    Thinking of watching Brayshaw this week and if another lowish score, I'll move Finnlayson up and Murphy in. Looks like he can play. JS though might be an issue in a Crows team.

      Derek · 29/03/2018 at 23:55

      I was surprised he played tonight.

      He only had 10 disposals, but the 2 goals really helped.

      I think he will get a few more games, Crows have a couple of injury’s now

        FranklinShow · 30/03/2018 at 07:46

        Is he not playing the charlie cameron roll? JS good for at least 4 wks

          Big G · 31/03/2018 at 17:04

          if he makes it to $275,000 I would say ha has earned a spot in the Cash Cow Hall of Fame.

Ja191 · 29/03/2018 at 20:40

crouch done for the night hammy

Liam · 29/03/2018 at 20:41

Can anyone give any insight on whether O’Connor will play on Monday ?

    Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 20:42

    I was hoping the same Liam, might not know until Sat night.

    Carleton · 30/03/2018 at 03:25

    Yes, he'll play — he makes their best 22.

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:37

    I think he might be included only because Harry Taylor is out.

Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 20:41

Yeow..Matt Crouch done with a Hammy…more carnage to start the year for Crouch owners!

    hedski · 29/03/2018 at 20:42

    Yep that's me.

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 20:44

      Bloody sucks man when the best players in the game go down!

      gator59 · 29/03/2018 at 20:45

      And me FFS

        BVB21 · 29/03/2018 at 21:06

        Me too.

        Got the VC on dusty so hopefully that makes up for it a bit. Although Lambert is not helping things either

        Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 21:26

        When are you back from..the land of only one router Gator?

          gator59 · 29/03/2018 at 22:32

          Sunday week Russty

    Post_MaSloane · 29/03/2018 at 20:44

    Sloane's looking sore as well… Worst case scenario for the crows if they both go down

    Marty · 29/03/2018 at 22:40

    Hurts more when i have the vc on him changed from dusty at the last minute

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:43

      Just pick the right C Marty, no worries.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/03/2018 at 23:02

    Not happy,but will be a good excuse to get either Dusty or Danger in next week.

Finnius · 29/03/2018 at 20:42

Hugh Greenwood is the next midfield beast. If he got more TOG could easily average 100.

    Pete · 01/04/2018 at 16:11

    I agree and wanna see!
    But I have a sneaking suspicion that they aren’t playing him that long coz he doesn’t have the tank yet.

Kyle · 29/03/2018 at 20:50

Crouch looking like a tasty upgrade in a month or 2 hopefully. I picked him as a top 8 mid in the preseason. Never nice to see a quality young player injured

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 21:56

    Crouch and Merrett gonna be cheap.

      The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:06

      i flipped a coin between Crouch and Sloane and got Crouch.
      Fate sucks as a SuperCoach tactic.

        The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:46

        Shoulda picked Gibbs

      Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 01:08

      As long as merrett is back to normal scoring now he wont be discounted much. His low score will only be in 1 rolling price change and then will be out so i cant imagine his price being all that cheap.

      Crouch however will have an injury affected score in 2 price changes so will be at more of a discount. If he drops to 500k il pick him up in an instant – i started zerrett 🙁

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 21:25

Geez was gonna use crowden as a dpp loop for at least the first 6 games but Rosco has put him in this round. Dont know much about him other than he was a good loop option early. Do i put him on deck instead of Fritsch?

Way dusty is going out of the gate may have to trade danger. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤣" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f923.svg"&gt;

    Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 21:57

    Nah I'd still bet on Fritsch Trigger…Not good when your never expected to play ..ever player plays lol

Rick Grimes · 29/03/2018 at 21:51

It's like he's under instructions to run really fast around every play but what ever you do don't touch it.

    Bells · 29/03/2018 at 23:32

    The Rohan Principle.

The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 21:52

Aside from SuperCoach relevancy….how good is Fogarty gonna be?!
18yrs old and doesn't take a backward step.

    Multi_ · 29/03/2018 at 21:54

    Looks a beast doesn’t he what pick did they get him in the draft?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 21:57

      13 i think
      Was touted as a top 3

        Multi_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:03

        Good get at 13 really like the way he goes about it

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 21:55

    Good boy from the bush.
    Old fashioned footballer, will go toe to toe with you and has a great action.
    Will kick a few snags for the crows.

    Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:01

    He'll be the natural replacement for Walker…because Walker has always sucked ass.

    hedski · 29/03/2018 at 22:03

    They didn't give him Roos number 32 for no reason Ranger. Love the way he goes about it.

      The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:23

      Nice pickup Hedski, hadn't spotted that.
      Future Mayor of Adelaide maybe….

        hedski · 29/03/2018 at 22:43

        Maybe he'll follow the last bloke to wear that number and become the mayor of Geelong?

    Marty · 29/03/2018 at 22:43

    His swagger reminds me of Carey

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 06:35

    He was pick 12. Which was the pick they got for Charlie Cameron. This time last year Darcy Fogarty was favourite for pick 1. He had some great games & some poor ones last year & moved down the draft order. I really wanted the Pies to take him at Pick 6. I thought that would be a bargain. Pick 12 for him is ludicrous. He's better than Rayner

      David C · 30/03/2018 at 14:19

      Bit early to make that call about Rayner. Look how Weitering and Schache have dropped off.

GloryDays90 · 29/03/2018 at 21:59

LAMBERT RAGE TRADE TIME!!

    Maverick_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:04

    everytime his name is even just mentioned my blood pressure rises.. who we trading him to GD90?

      Rick Grimes · 29/03/2018 at 22:31

      I might have the cash to go to Buddy. Will also consider Greene, tho a massive flog.

        Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:44

        A good scoring flog though Rick. .might be worth the risk.

        Maverick_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:49

        I still have Libba to deal with yet! his trade will dictate who i get for lambert with what $$$ i have left afterward. will be pushing for selwood, cripps or greene next week.

      GloryDays90 · 29/03/2018 at 22:50

      Will see after this round. Greene is a good target.

Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 21:59

Doe-bloody Dee looking good again…as solid as rookies come.

    BrownlowBoy · 29/03/2018 at 22:01

    I didn't make the same mistake twice and have him on the pine!

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:05

      Nice work BB

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:46

    Totally agree Russty, he is a revelation.

Defying_Madness · 29/03/2018 at 22:09

I bench Naughton to take Murphy's score right?

    BrownlowBoy · 29/03/2018 at 22:13

    YES

    The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:16

    Above 75 is generally a take from a rookie for mine.

    Jonesy · 29/03/2018 at 22:20

    whose ya donut in ya backline? i wish i had one :/ murphs on the pine with the E but have 7 playing in my backline. spewin

      Defying_Madness · 29/03/2018 at 22:21

      Keefe, loving the flexibility he provides me with Sicily in my forward line.

        Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:26

        Keefe is last year's Hibberd.

Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:13

These will be the types of games that will bite the Tigers on the ass this year…looked like they didn't want to win all that much.

Finnius · 29/03/2018 at 22:15

Doedee hits the ton with ten to go!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 22:27

    Lever who??

Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 22:24

I don't know what you all think, but I think this has been a pathetic effort from the Tigers, not showing anywhere near the intensity that they know they need to show to win the big games, completely un-inspiring game and I'm very disappointed with their effort, and I don't even barrack for them.
They'll finish 9th again this year with that kind of crappish effort.

    Frolet · 29/03/2018 at 22:41

    And they played an Adelaide side who had a hardish game last week against Essendon, a six day break and had two Crow players down early.

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 23:05

      Looked like the Tigers of 2 or 3 years ago…a few guys doing really well, and the rest playing the role of the also rans…not good enough.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/03/2018 at 23:15

        Riewolt good baramoter for tiges.

    hedski · 29/03/2018 at 22:46

    Yep put me out of my multi in the first leg.

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 23:04

      Sons o Bitches!

      Multi_ · 30/03/2018 at 08:30

      Same here hedski

Lekdog · 29/03/2018 at 22:28

Bye Kane Lambert

    The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:39

    Classic mid pricer pick Lek.
    When they come off they're gold but when they don't….

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:45

    Same Lek, time to pack his S#it

Rick Grimes · 29/03/2018 at 22:29

See ya later Lambert.

Hooks · 29/03/2018 at 22:53

CROUCH NOOOOOOOOOO

    Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 23:02

    Yes…an hour and a half ago…nooooo

GloryDays90 · 29/03/2018 at 22:55

Nankervis Is a BEAST: 112
Laird had leather poisoning: 121
Doedee OMG what a rookie he will be: 113

Lambert can go get stuffed

    BrownlowBoy · 29/03/2018 at 22:57

    Surely Nank gets off?

      Russty_ · 29/03/2018 at 23:01

      I don't think there was anything in that BB, looked to me like he was trying to avoid hurting him.

hedski · 29/03/2018 at 22:56

Hmm, looks like Crouch to Dusty as a no brainer next week for me.

    The Ranger · 29/03/2018 at 22:59

    Crouch to Gibbs?

      gator59 · 29/03/2018 at 23:07

      Looks the way to go Hedski

      hedski · 29/03/2018 at 23:08

      Dusty 139 + 150 odd, he's not dropping price anytime soon and I have no tigers.
      Gibbs good pod but not in my plans where Dusty was always a target.

        gator59 · 29/03/2018 at 23:20

        Same here Hedski .. No Tigers yet

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 06:18

    No brainer trade Hedski. Get it done

Hawks · 29/03/2018 at 22:57

Went Lambert, his working hard, but just not getting enough of it.

Think he needs to go before next week, maybe downgrade to a rookie, then upgrade Fyfe to Dangerfield (depending on what Fyfe & Dangerfield show us this week).

    hedski · 29/03/2018 at 23:03

    Fyfe will go big this week.

Jonesy · 29/03/2018 at 23:09

not SC classic relevant but for my draft side…
Whats wrong with Luke Dunstan from st kilda?
He's not injured is he??
just not in the best 22 or

    SC_Kev7 · 30/03/2018 at 10:13

    Richo said last week he's behind Acres and Steele. Armo back doesn't help his cause

Fitzy · 29/03/2018 at 23:18

how is J.stephensons JS, scoring potential & cash rise look? don't know alot about him or collingwoods list
Thinking of going Lambert to him and libba to dusty next week.
thoughts

    gator59 · 29/03/2018 at 23:23

    I've got him in the fwd line fitzy.. Got the job done last week but then again who else have they got apart from Bucks

Bells · 29/03/2018 at 23:25

Off to another flyer, VC on Dusty, Laird, and Doodee onfield this time 🙂

TommyC99 · 29/03/2018 at 23:26

Loopholled doedee. Keeffe better not get a game!!!

    Derek · 29/03/2018 at 23:49

    I’ve got Murphy with E and O’Conner as my loophole but is on the extended bench for Monday’s game. If O’Conner is named will have play Murray and Finlayson on field.

    Happy with Doedee score. Gun.

    KSinny · 30/03/2018 at 09:33

    Same here!!

Derek · 29/03/2018 at 23:29

10 mins before the start of the season i changed from Dangerfield to Dusty.

139 + 160 is really helping me feel ok I don’t have Danger.

    SCdonkey · 29/03/2018 at 23:52

    Nice Derek, i toyed with that idea this week. Ryder to Dusty and still had $160K left over to get Danger in Rd 4 to Rd 6. My priority this week was to see if Rocky improves and Danger playing with Gaz.

    Might have to get Dusty next round before his price rise if Rocky spuds this weekend. I have $430K in the bank to spend for him and Bonner pending if he has another decent score.

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:39

      I’m not that keen on Bonnar. Quite expensive at $257k. Most people have all the rookies they need in defence.

      He is a good correction trade.

      He might be an option if you have someone like Bell to trade to Bonnar. Swing Finlayson or O’Conner into mids.

      At $257k his ROI isn’t as good as the cheap rookies, including Naughton if you already have him.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 00:52

    How will you get Danger back in now that he's back in?

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 09:05

      that is the question.

      I still have the $165k in the bank from swapping Danger to dusty. I was holding onto that in case one of my other premiums went down I could do one trade to Danger. Hopefully I can get through weekend without any injuries.

      At this stage I’m going to roll the dice and not get Danger this week and therefore have a good look at him with Ablett in the team. He plays my Hawks so I’ll be watching him from behind the lounge.

      Realistically I won’t be able to get him until my first upgrade, looking at round 5 or 6. I’ve got a few mid-pricers in my team who I could upgrade. Either Mills, Devon, Petracca, Lobb or Shaw. If Danger has a little price drop and the midpricers a little increase, I’m looking at about $250k for trade. I have $165k. First cash cow cull should do it.

      I then have the Round 14 bye to deal with.

        dontblushbaby · 30/03/2018 at 09:22

        Did you put the VC on Dusty Derek ? With 10 mins before the game I changed to Greene,but might go Billings, I should went with my first thought, but thats SC

          Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:45

          I have stuck with Billings as VC. I can see one of the Sainters going huge against a tiring North team.

          I’m a bit surprised with Dusty’s score. His two quick goals that got them back in the game scored him 35 points. Even when game finished he was on 150 but they managed to find him another 10 in a defeated team.

        Borko · 30/03/2018 at 09:31

        sounds like a good plan … still a bit early to say, but could be the winning strategy re. Danger (at this stage, you are $100k and 300 points in front!). I kept him, so hoping for a 150 on Monday, but seems unlikely! Will put the C on Mitchell I think.

          Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:50

          The Hawks will have their work to do to stop him. They have Shields how has done the job on him before. Howe is an improving defensive mid and they also Duraye who could put some extra pressure on when he goes forward.

          All eyes will be on him. Mostly from the 83% of coaches who don’t have him

            Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:09

            I think the Hawks need to worry about their own game, too many Cats to tag. However the Cats do need to worry about TMitch, not sure who will go to him but someone mentioned Cam Guthrie earlier in the week, he'd be a good choice.

              Derek · 30/03/2018 at 11:37

              TMich plays a lot like Ablett. As soon as he has a disposal he is off again, usually running to space. Not sure Guthrie has the legs to run with him.

              Maybe TMitch will tag Danger

                Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 12:11

                Think Danger will get alot of fwd time first up

                  Derek · 30/03/2018 at 12:14

                  Agree.

                  Maybe Stratton goes to him

Josh · 30/03/2018 at 02:17

After stupidly starting with Tom Bell, is it worth using a trade to get rid of him or am I better off taking a score from Garlett/ryan and hoping he earns a spot in the team next week?

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 09:06

    He wont drop in price next week Josh so if you have any other holes or cash leakers I'd swap them first

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:43

    Dump the spud as soon as you can.

    JEL · 30/03/2018 at 11:30

    Also started with Bell, I figure if he is dropped after 1 week his JS isn't that good.
    Traded him for Waterman, hope that doesn't bite me. Already have Fritsch, Fogarty & Garlett as my FWD rookies

      INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 12:44

      I'd be a little concerned JEL when JJK comes back. Waterman could be the one to make way

        JEL · 30/03/2018 at 13:37

        True, though they are showing JJK still 3-4 weeks away, so hopefully Waterman can make a bit of cash and another rookie shows themselves.
        I feel like I'm walking a tightrope with a blindfold on while juggling chainsaws with this forward line.

    Dogss · 30/03/2018 at 13:59

    I wasn’t going to trade this week, but I ended up swapping bell for bonner via a dpp. Hope it doesn’t bite me in the butt

Browncow · 30/03/2018 at 03:13

Think he needs to go Josh. Unless you had the VC on Dusty and need a loophole. Put the E on Garlett either way and if he goes ok you could always reassess next week after having another look at the rookies.

    Josh · 30/03/2018 at 16:17

    I'm thinking of holding this week and seeing how the likes of bonner, young, howard, and some other mid-pricers go and if they can back up their round 1 scores. Or see if there are any rookies that go big and put their hand up for a spot. Will have to take garlett's score on field though.

Gazza · 30/03/2018 at 07:09

I gave Laird the VC last night should i loophole his 120 or use Danger or Titch

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 07:32

    I'd take it to the bank. Not sure how Danger will come out & surely Titch gets an opponent this week

      Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 07:45

      I did the same Pie…really is 120 enough? thinking Danger or Titch could still go big..who are you VC-ing this week?

        INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 07:52

        Took the VC off Dusty yesterday & gave it to Fyfe. I'd take a 120 from Fyfe right now. Oops

          Derek · 30/03/2018 at 09:10

          I took it of Dusty and gave it to Billings.

          140 is my new VC cut off. Although I took Dustys 139 last week.

      Tibor · 30/03/2018 at 09:08

      Does Titch get a hard tag early? I have my doubts surely Geelong just back their own midfield to get the job done . The advantage Titch has is McEvoy is better than anyone Geelong have in the ruck. Who do Geelong have to play a negative role on Titch because he is such a pure first possession player. I reckon in Scott Selwood abscence they just back Joel to beat Titch to the pill. They limit Titches effectiveness by stopping the outside mid like a JOM. This is where I reckon Collingwood really failed a total lack of defensive pressure not just a failure to sit on Titch. I reckon Titch is a near bullet proof supercoach scorer he will always get plenty but how damaging he is can be limited by stopping the second possession player

        Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 15:18

        Agree with pretty much everything you said – except that although McEvoy will get first hand to it, I can see Ablett, Duncan, Danger, and Selwood sharking it a few times.

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 09:09

    120 isn't a great captains score Gazza. I wouldn't take it

      Tibor · 30/03/2018 at 09:23

      What is the number to look for to take a vc score. I passed on Dustys 139 last week which worked because I had Titch as captain am inclined to bank Dusty this week…surely anything over 150 is a keeper

        Holty · 30/03/2018 at 09:53

        130 is the score i look for.

          Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:31

          The C is more about bragging rights than the additional score.

          People forget you don’t get double the difference in points.

          If you take the 120 and miss out on a 140 as your C, it is only 20pts difference, not 40pts.

          Same in reverse.

        WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 10:33

        Hi Tibor, it's hard to say what the minimum score to take as VC/C is but based on last years scores 140 should be the benchmark score. You did the smart thing last week but it takes guts

          Tibor · 30/03/2018 at 15:46

          Took the punt based on his previous 50 possession game against the pies. Bucks copped heaps because he didn't go the hard tag option but that is easier said than done especially on a pure ball getter like Titch. They need to all defend and attack now. A tagger costs you and blokes who only run one way cost you now. That is the big problem at the pies they ar all quite similar in that midfield they have talent but lack defensive pressure and Pendles is probably the main offender. Surely just coincidence that bucks played his footy that way too.

    Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 15:19

    I'd take it if I was worried about my Captain option but typically, I try to stick to 130+ from my VC.

Tyruddanaut · 30/03/2018 at 07:50

Doedeeeeeeee

Mike · 30/03/2018 at 08:02

WHEN YOU PUT THE VC ON DUSTY 10 MINS BEFORE THE GAME

    Holty · 30/03/2018 at 09:43

    Nice. Dont have him. Was uncertain how he would back up this year. Think he has answered that.

MRmoMAN · 30/03/2018 at 08:37

thinking i'm gonna be behind the ball game early with out dangerfield or martin… panicked traded danger during round 1. Is it worth trading merret up to him now? Or should i jump on martin next week before his price rises? IN A SERIOUS PREDICAMENT!!! PLEASE GIVE ME ANSWERS?!?!

Going for overall rank as well by the way.

Cheers the man with the MO

    Holty · 30/03/2018 at 09:08

    Id hold for 1 more week. That way you will see how Merrett has recovered from the many hits in the head he had copped in the last 2 months. Also, you get to see how Dangers Hammy is and you can decide between Danger and Dusty. The way Dusty has started though, not sure if anyone would critisize you if you went Dusty.

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 09:11

    Dusty will only increase by 10-20k MR

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:26

    Easy one, do you want the best player in the league in your side? Dangerfield welcome to my side, bye bye Zorko the once magnificent.

    Danger, TMitch, Ablett, Fyfe, Parker, Cogs, Kelly, Holman.. I'm happy with the mids for now : )

BVB21 · 30/03/2018 at 08:44

So I need to do two corrective trades next week.

Crouch and Lambert.

I have all the rookies except Garlett and English.

Is it worth letting them go or should I trade out a rookie on my bench

M – Barry or Banfield
F – Liam Ryan or Z.Giles-Langdon

Garlett thinking of letting go but English goes big again this week will regret it.

    SC_Kev7 · 30/03/2018 at 10:09

    Good job nailing the rookies, BVB. Crouch definitely needs to go as it will probably be a 3-4 week hammy.

    Definitely look at English again, Garlett doesn't offer significant upside compared to the 4 bench rookies you mentioned. Wait and see on Lambert's breakeven, though it probably won't be pretty. Forwards were tough to pick so maybe it's worth jumping on Dev/Trac/Sicily while they're cheapish

    Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 15:26

    Crouch isn't a corrective, he's injured.

    As for your rookies, you can't have them all so for me, it would take one of the rookies you have tanking (again) and the one you don't have lighting it up.

dontblushbaby · 30/03/2018 at 09:27

Thoughts on Nanks little indiscretion ? I personally think there wasn't much in it ,but I'm biased as I have him in my team like many others,also happy with his 108

    SC_Kev7 · 30/03/2018 at 09:56

    He's just a big dopey ruck haha. Didn't look good but I saw it as more momentum carrying him into his back rather than Nank getting in a cheap shot

Holty · 30/03/2018 at 09:45

Excited about O'Shea. Should be handy for the Blues.

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:35

    Another expensive rookie, hope it works out for ya.

      Holty · 30/03/2018 at 11:06

      Dont have him yet but what do you consider an expensive rookie?

        Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:10

        Any rookie >$123K

          Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 11:13

          Not really a rookie though Stark, he's an experienced player.

            Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:17

            True Russty, true.. how about a reconditioned rookie?

Matt · 30/03/2018 at 09:54

How the hell did Dustin Martin get 77 points in the second half on the back of 8 possessions and two goals and add on the he gave away at least one free kick ??????

    Mike · 30/03/2018 at 10:01

    Dont care im taking his 160 as capt

      Holty · 30/03/2018 at 10:06

      Lol.

        JugHead · 30/03/2018 at 10:17

        Yep, strange things happen. At 3/4 time I wondered how Laird could have 31 posessions for only 83 SC points.

          TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 12:03

          Laird did butcher the pill a bit. Dusty hardly did anything in the second half and scored 77 is a joke

            BlakeyP · 30/03/2018 at 15:53

            Dusty had 25d, 7 tackles and 5 Goals. That is a pretty good game if you as me

      BadgerHoney7 · 30/03/2018 at 10:19

      same

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 10:50

    They may have mistaken him for Bont

    Wedge · 30/03/2018 at 11:41

    I thought he was over 100 at half time?

      TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 12:03

      Nah 90 odd

BadgerHoney7 · 30/03/2018 at 10:19

Rioli was confirmed at half forward.

Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:32

Surprised no mention of how good Rance went last night. The ball was down his way a lot so figures he would be involved in the play. He got spanked by Jenkins but still managed a respectful 99, has to be on the radar as a top defender again with that form. Can't remember what score he was at quarter time but it wasn't pretty.

    BrownlowBoy · 30/03/2018 at 10:47

    Gets a lot of points for punches. When you compare his game to Laird, Laird should of scored a lot higher in my opinion. Rance should score 0 for getting dominated by Jenkins.

      Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:00

      Agree on Laird, his score should of been a lot more. I mentioned last night how close Murphy was to Laird at half time (6 points). Rance did take quite a few intercept marks but only laid 2 tackles and had 4 free kicks against so his score is impressive.

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 10:48

    Throws in turds. If you really want him pick him up when he's really cheap

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:59

    He was -2 at quarter time and about 11 at half time

      JugHead · 30/03/2018 at 11:20

      Yep. He is a roller coaster. And he will give you an opportunity to get him cheap.

Tooley · 30/03/2018 at 10:36

Billings or Cripps for the VC?

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:40

    Billings avg. vs Norf only 80 odd with a high score of 110. Cripps not much better at 89 avg.

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:58

      North are going to be stuffed after last weeks trip to Cairns.

      One of the Saints little guys are going to go huge.

        Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:02

        I hope you're right Derek, Billings is in my side : )

        WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 11:04

        Jack Steven 160+

          Derek · 30/03/2018 at 11:33

          you might be right Trev. I just know one of the Sainters will junk it up in the last quarter and go huge

            WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 12:56

            I can't decide on the VC between Jack Steven and Buddy Derek. Which do you reckon is more likely to go 150+? Will Buddy turn it on for Sydney or will the Hoff smother him?

              Derek · 30/03/2018 at 14:35

              Buddy does very well in a winning team.

              I’m not tipping against the swans, but Port will be in the game got along time.

                Derek · 30/03/2018 at 14:55

                Just looked up his home vs away stats.

                Goals 3.9 home vs 2.1 away.

                Frees Against 0.9 home vs 2.9 away.

                WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 15:11

                I'm not so sure about Port Derek, it's the SCG. I'll be watching this game should show whether Bonner is worth getting or will be mid-pack. If he goes well at the SCG against a fast and ferocious Swans foward pack he can go well anywhere

                  Derek · 30/03/2018 at 15:45

                  At least you have Buddy

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 12:05

    Its a tough call. I have both Cripps and Billings. I am tempted to stick with Cripps as he is playing against the Suns and should get a huge amount of the pill, but what if Kruezer is a late out? That might change things. Still have Parker, and Fyfe who play later and are both solid VC options should Kruezer miss. The conundrum I have is who to run as captain on Monday? Danger or Titch? Titch might be the safer bet, just in case Danger's hammy flares and does a Matty Crouch mid game. Decisions decisions!!

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 12:12

      Robo is missing for Lions. He would have Tagged Oliver.

      Will be either Gawn or Oliver for my C if Billings doesn’t kill it

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 12:14

        Oliver VC!

        TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 12:19

        Gawn is up against Stefan Martin though. That could impact his scoring a little and would put me off putting the C on him. Billings to Oliver does look solid.

        Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 15:29

        I've gone Oliver, hopefully he can still score well with Gawn having a tougher opponent.

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 13:12

      Billings vc into Danger, or if I'm feeling adventurous Billings into Tobias.

Grant The Ant · 30/03/2018 at 10:42

Would love some feedback for this week:
DEF: Laird, Ryan, Bonner, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee (Keefe, Naughton)
MID: Dusty, Fyfe, Parker, Treloar, Whitfield, Libba, Fiorini, Kelly (Brayshaw, Banfield, Holman)
R: Ryder, Gawn (English)
FWD: Buddy, Cameron, Lambert, Sicily, J.Thomas, Fritsch (Harlett, Giles-Langdon)

Obviously need to offload Ryder and Libba. My trades are:

Ryder > Nic Nat
Libba > Cogs

Any other trades people can suggest?

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 10:55

    Ant those trades are good although there's a concern on NicNat's TOG%. I don't mind the choice but others will probably call you on that one. Cogs is an excellent swap for Libba.

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 11:11

    Ryder to Nic Nat will bank you enough cash to go Libba to Cripps -> I'd be doing that.

TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 10:49

Doedee on field both weeks for an 86 and 115. He is averaging 100.5 if you dont mind. I am going to look forward to his BE this week. Murphy on the bench but who cares! Both are going to make some huge cash in coming weeks. Last year it was Andy Otten, and this year it looks like DOEDEEEE! Gotta love those Crows back line rooks.

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 10:54

    Won't take Crows fans long to forget about Lever the way hes going

      Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 11:13

      So true! And got to love his name Dude Eh

      BrownlowBoy · 30/03/2018 at 11:24

      Who is Lever?!

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 10:54

    Talia was a bit injured and Doedee was everywhere in the second half. Was on 47 at half time and I was thinking i’ll Take 80.

    I went safety and had E on Murphy. Depends if O’Conner plays or not if I can take his 80. He did good with only 10 touches. His 2 goals should get him a game next week.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 11:16

    The Dude is the man!..might get the rising star this week too 🙂

    JEL · 30/03/2018 at 11:40

    I'll wait and see how Naughton goes this week, but Naughton -> Murphy is on the cards before the price rise.
    Already have the Dude on field.

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 12:09

      Good idea to wait. Murphy might be lucky to get a game next week.

CheekyNandos7 · 30/03/2018 at 11:11

Will Barry be playing this week?

JugHead · 30/03/2018 at 11:13

Mulling over 2 corrective trades for next week…
Rayner down to Garlett.
LDU up to Cogs.
Thoughts………?
Also, now with 2 sub 50 scores from Fogarty (Adel), is he a hold or a cull?

Cyriledagain · 30/03/2018 at 11:33

Appreciate some thoughts with my team.
Assuming Crouch misses several weeks do I trade him and to whom considering byes?
I'm sure Kreuzer will be a late withdrawal, cant see them risking him so early in the season. Do I hold or trade? Nic Nat obvious choice because of byes but he is a risk with the injuries.
Am considering Fogarty (cats) and Bonner as corrections but Crouch and Kreuzer take precedence.

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Murphy, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee (Keefe, Naughton)
MID: TMitch, Fyfe, Cripps, Kelly, Crouch, ,Coniglio, Kelly, Brayshaw (Barry, Banfield, Holman)
R: Kreuzer, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Sicily, Petracca, Fritsch (Garlett, Ryan)

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 12:07

    The good thing is that Carlton play before both WCE and dogs. If Kruzer misses you will need to trade Olango to English to avoid donut.

    Wait for news on Crouch. If more than 2 weeks you might need to trade him. After next week, the Crows have 4 out of 5 games at Adelaide Oval, it would be good to have him for them.

    If you had to trade, Crouch to Parker looks good, same bye round

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 14:36

    I'm looking at trading Crouch to either Dusty or Danger next week.

Derek · 30/03/2018 at 11:40

just Read that Kruzer is in “Some doubt” to play. They will wait until the last minute to decide

I thought it was a hammy problem, but I read it is his groin

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 12:19

    Not sure he gets up. Suns at home they played in those conditions in Cairns.

      Browncow · 30/03/2018 at 12:55

      Think you might be right. Hope he doesn’t play. Rather miss him for one than five weeks if he reinjures

Wedge · 30/03/2018 at 11:45

Merrett and zorko last week. M crouch last night. Sc counsellors should exist.

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 12:39

    Jeez Wedge that's a rough start. The Dees have brought Bugg in. I'd be nervous he might be heading for Zorko. If Zorko gets tagged again this week & drops another turd I'd get rid of him whilst he's still at full currency

      Wedge · 30/03/2018 at 13:11

      Yeah sure thing. Stupidly didn't start with titch. At least I've got plenty of bank. Without rockliff, zorko might struggle with more attention. Two trades of zorko and crouch to danger and titch next week on the cards.

        INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 13:17

        Grab Titch & Danger if you have the funds. You'll need them at some point. Might as well get it out of the way ASAP

        Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 15:23

        I mistakenly thought Zorko would take the work load and thrive without Rocky. I know it's only one week but what I saw with Ebert all over him was nothing short of turd city.

        Other coaches would of seen that performance and now know what to do when they play the Lions. Also, Zorko's B/E is 268 atm and could get worse if someone like Bernie Vince goes to him tomorrow night. If he does reach top 8 mid standards during the season I'll reassess. This is basically why I dumped him for Danger.

          Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 16:01

          Last year zorko dominated without rocky in the side. I think rich going down has a bigger impact on zorko. Teams were more likely to tag rich over zorko last year.

          Give the bloke a chance. Everyone throws up a turd or 2. Even danger did last year. Only man exempt from this seems to be titch who gets 30 touches every bloody week

            Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 16:19

            And you're right, last year they did tag Rich more for whatever reason. I just reckon other coaches would of noticed what Ebert did to shut him down and will take that into account when assessing the Lions structure.

            Danger is entitled to a turd once a year when you avg. 136 for the season.

TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 12:07

Since kruezer could be a late out, is it worth being Tom English in at R3 just in case? Haven’t made a trade yet this week

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 12:36

    They play tomorrow. So wait for final team sheets. If he's a late out grab English

      TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 13:37

      Oh is it a rolling lockout again? Thought teams had to be finalised today

        David C · 30/03/2018 at 14:51

        It's always a rolling lockout.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 12:21

A bit of me hopes Barry doesnt get named.

    hedski · 30/03/2018 at 12:40

    If he doesn't I can loop Garlett and Brayshaw.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 12:53

      l can then loop Holman and Brayshaw. Gray back might see him miss.

BloodyFranklin · 30/03/2018 at 12:40

What's the difference between Jesus, and a picture of Jesus???

It only takes one nail to hang the picture.

    SaintD · 30/03/2018 at 15:11

    Are u Jewish?

      BloodyFranklin · 30/03/2018 at 18:07

      Nah bro.

      Shalom 🙏

TBone · 30/03/2018 at 12:41

Hey guys, tossing up on who to throw the VC on. C on Danger as a just in case. My options are Parker, Fyfe, Cogs or Gawn. Cheers 🙂

    Multi_ · 30/03/2018 at 13:38

    Fyfe

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 14:14

    Gawn could go big.

Will · 30/03/2018 at 12:47

Kelly or Brayshaw on field?

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 13:04

    You must have missed the game last week. Here's what you need to know. Kelly is f*cki*g awesome

      Will · 30/03/2018 at 13:14

      Yeah didn't catch it, just wondering how Dangerfield will affect his scoring.

        INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 13:30

        I'm more worried about how Kelly will impact Danger's scores

          Multi_ · 30/03/2018 at 13:38

          And Ablett

          Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:48

          I'm worried that Kelly won't get the same look in the mids with Danger back. Still can't complain about Kelly's start to the year and anything near last week is good.

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 13:39

    Kelly is the better option Will. Brayshaw looked great in JLT but he was a bit lacking in the real hard stuff. Kelly is a grown man with 3 kids, footy is the only life that he has now. If Brayshaw gets sub-60 again this week I'm trading him to Garlett

Mark · 30/03/2018 at 12:49

Trade kreuzer?

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 12:58

    He is currently meant to be playing… Hold. If no cover and playing for overall rank and he is a late out then think about trading, but that is the only scenario where you do this.

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 13:49

    Carlton are stating that he's running without any problems but, he didn't join any training drills this week and he hasn't jumped or changed direction when running while he trained alone. To me that says he's stuffed for 6-weeks but wait and see I can be a drama queen

      Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 14:14

      If he is named one week after the incident he is running fine or close to fine – there is no way that they would risk him if potentially a 6 week injury.

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:45

    If he doesn't start Witts will have a day out. De Koning is an emergency, can't see him doing much against 206cm rubber man.

    redherringfc · 30/03/2018 at 15:03

    Who’s your R3? If you have a playing R3 then hold.

neil demons delight · 30/03/2018 at 13:19

David Warner's horse Northern Fire at Gosford has been SCRATCHED

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 13:31

    I thought his horse was called givebancroftsandpaper

      Multi_ · 30/03/2018 at 13:37

      Brilliant InPie

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 13:35

    It shouldn't be a problem Neil, horses are pretty tough so Dave will get that scratch out with a bit of sandpaper then give it a nice paint job and enter it in a Maiden next week in another state.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 13:43

    Warner also SCRATCHED. He has 12 months to sandpaper his bats and play super coach. LOL

Claire · 30/03/2018 at 13:27

Derek, Russty, Pieman or someone else who knows about the emergency loophole. I can now do the Captain’s loophole after messing up a couple of efforts last year, now I am trying to understand the emergency loophole.
Assuming O’Conner doesn’t get a game, do I put him on the field and the E on Naughton. If Naughton is doing poorly in the first half I have time to swap O’Conner with Finlayson. My other defenders are Laird, McGovern, Bonner, Doedee and Murray. Murray I have faith in!
But, who do I play on the field if O’Conner gets a game?

Is that correct, otherwise I’ll simply put Finlayson on the field to join, Laird, McGovern, Bonner, Doedee and Murray with Naughton as my E.
Say if O’Conner gets a game. Do I play him instead of who? Apparently he is a good player.

    WoW_Trevor · 30/03/2018 at 13:42

    If you want Naughtons score put your non-player(O'Connor atmo) on field
    If you want to avoid Naughtons score have a player on field.
    I'd be suprised if Naughton gets within 20 points of Finlayson's score though

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 13:46

    Loophole is deployed only if you have a non playing player. You will know if O'Conner is playing about 5pm today AEST. If you have the E on Naughton & say he's on 40 at HT & your happy with his game then leave O'Conner n the field (assuming he isn't playing). If Naughton is stinking it up then put Finlayson on the field. Same principal applies with the VC loophole. Say you have Darcy Cameron & Gawn. You might put your VC on Fyfe & he scores 140. You want to take his score. You then put Gawn on the bench with the E on him. And then put the C on Cameron. You then get Fyfe's VC score & Gawns score as E

      Claire · 30/03/2018 at 13:50

      Thank you so much boys especially you Pieman. So clear and I’m sure many other readers will benefit too.

        hedski · 30/03/2018 at 13:55

        Finlayson plays first tho Claire so if O'Connor is out you need the E on Finlayson, Naughton doesn't play until Sunday. If O'Connor is named just play Finlayson on field is the safest bet.

          INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 14:04

          Great point Hedski.I didn't check the schedule

            hedski · 30/03/2018 at 14:17

            I'm hoping one of my defs isn't a late out, have the E on Naughton and Murphys 80 just sitting there.

              Derek · 30/03/2018 at 14:29

              I’m sure you will still take Murphy’s cash increase next week

                hedski · 30/03/2018 at 15:00

                Damn straight I will Derek, glad he didn't drop another 30 points on us.

          Claire · 30/03/2018 at 15:00

          Thank you

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 14:27

    The most important thing is to know the order of the games over the weekend

    Your example doesn’t work because GWS play first.

    I put my E on Murphy, played first and a chance he could spud.

    I’ll be waiting to see if O’Conner named as well. If he plays I have no loophole and no way for getting Murphy’s score.

    You will get used to it and realise when you have an opportunity or not. Most weeks you can’t.

    I jumped on O’Conner last week because of his DPP and can offer me loophole opportunities on two lines.

    I think he will play and he is going to be good.

Claire · 30/03/2018 at 13:28

Sorry. Repeated myself.

TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 13:58

Billings, Fyfe or Kelly VC? Thinking Fyfe will bounce back against a bombers side who doesn’t tag

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 14:06

    Agreed Tommy. I couldn't find a suitable match up for Fyfe. Hope Woosha has the same problem

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 14:12

    Fyfe for me.

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:46

    I have Fyfe VC, should go big.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 15:01

    I am going Fyfe. He think he will put on a clinic at the new Optus stadium in front of that 60,000+ crowd.

Grasper · 30/03/2018 at 14:03

Holman or Brayshaw on field?

    dontblushbaby · 30/03/2018 at 14:06

    Same, I've gone Holman but with no conviction, only based on last week scores

      Grasper · 30/03/2018 at 14:09

      Yeh, flip of the coin.Thank you so much boys especially you Pieman. So clear and I

        INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 14:21

        No worries. If Barry is out you can loophole Holman into Brayshaw

        hedski · 30/03/2018 at 14:21

        Ha ha. Hmmmm.

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 14:11

    I have gone Holman

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 15:08

    Holman for me. If Barry does not play its a bonus. Holman loves his tackling. 13 tackles last week in the swamp. There are probably 40 SC points he scores just by his tackling. His DE was only 46% with 4 clangers. If he can tidy up his foot skills I only see more upside. Cheers

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 15:28

    I think there is a good chance with Gray back Barry hopefully has a little rest

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 15:38

      Good for the loop Shake but I'd prefer he made cash.

Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 14:06

Chances of a danger v titch head to head on monday? Could bring in some monster scores like that freo cats game

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 14:12

    hope so. Danger has been given the armband this week so hopefully he goes huge (160+ huge so he can beat Dusty, who I have as VC but no way of taking it…).

      Browncow · 30/03/2018 at 14:51

      Which means you chose your rookies wisely. Will cash in later!

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:59

    No chance. Danger would eat him. More likely Danger rotates mid-fwd, and TMitch gets a hard tag first half see how it goes.

MRmoMAN · 30/03/2018 at 14:13

thinking i'm gonna be behind the ball game early with out dangerfield or martin… panicked traded danger during round 1. Is it worth trading merret up to him now? Or should i jump on martin next week before his price rises? IN A SERIOUS PREDICAMENT!!! PLEASE GIVE ME ANSWERS?!?!

    INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 14:23

    You need Danger Titch & Dusty sooner rather than later

      MRmoMAN · 30/03/2018 at 14:27

      worth trading zerret to him?

        redherringfc · 30/03/2018 at 14:55

        No.

        redherringfc · 30/03/2018 at 14:58

        Zerrett will be top 10 mid come years end. If you trade him out, you’ll end up wanting to bring him back in anyway. Sit tight, wait until you can cash in some rookies and then bring them in, best value first.

        Do not sideways trade your premiums.

          Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 15:01

          He only needs 8 mids. Why not sideways trade premiums, is that a rule?

            Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 15:56

            It has always been one of the top rules to follow. Why would you trade out a top 8 mid for another top 8 mid only to have to bring in the first one later on again? Its a waste of 3 trades (one sideways and 2 later on)

              Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 16:15

              In Zerrett's case I would be on the doubter's side whether he can be uber premium (top 8). At this stage Zerret is a premium in my book so why not sideways trade to a premium you think will be uber? Simple really.

              Here's a few names (in no particular order) he has to contend with to be uber: Danger, Dusty, TMitch, Fyfe, Selwood, Ablett, J Kelly, Parker, Sloane, Cripps, Oliver, McCrae, Shiel / Cogs

              And I must of missed the pdf rule book release ; )

    Alex · 30/03/2018 at 14:28

    Quit supercoach and proceed to ingest a considerable amount of bleach and then you, my friend, will feel pain no more.

      MRmoMAN · 30/03/2018 at 14:39

      see who finishes higher and the end of the year topshot

    TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 14:49

    You should have started with at least 1 of them. In terms of sideways trading zerrett, if he has a poor game this week I would consider it

sc tragic · 30/03/2018 at 14:34

So now are we now to think Carlton aren't all that good as they lost to Richmond , in conclusion Essendon are better than we thought because they ran over Adelaide. Confucious say.

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:42

    Yeah doesn't seem to work like that, it's not the Cox Plate with Winx vs the rest.

Mr.Brightside · 30/03/2018 at 14:50

Caddy offered 1 week, Nank fined $1500

    Starkingdom · 30/03/2018 at 14:56

    Bit harsh on Caddy, he was clearly going for the ball with an open hand.

      David C · 30/03/2018 at 14:58

      Nah, he sat out the game concussed. That's automatically a week minimum.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 15:52

    Thank god for that as I brush the sweat of my forehead…… Had Nank been rubbed out for a week it would have made life very bloody hard. I probably would have been forced to trade in English for Olango to avoid a donut.

redherringfc · 30/03/2018 at 14:53

What time do the sunday teams get finalised?

If Barry and WC Ryan get named I need to VC a player from the saints so i can loophole using Keeffe.

Further to that, is it worth putting the v on Billings, Armitage or Savage. The C is on Danger, so I won’t settle for sub 140 anyway.

    dontblushbaby · 30/03/2018 at 15:02

    I think its late Friday but in time to go to print for the papers for tomorrow, not 100% sure

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 15:21

      About 5 o'clock this arvo on the afl live app Blush.

    hedski · 30/03/2018 at 15:06

    About 5 o'clock this arvo. I have vc'd Billings, I think he could go big.
    Cripps could also be a vc option if you have him, would need to decide by the last qtr of the game tho, not much wriggle room before the Giants game.

josh · 30/03/2018 at 15:11

Conundrum – what would you do.
I always play SC for overall rank, regardless of if I don't come first I prefer to have a good overall ranking than focus on winning league games week to week (although they sort of go hand in hand when you play for overall rank)

This week I have Kreuzer in the ruck, and may not get up to play.
I had dusty as VC, so have 160 points there and am going to loophole him with my only non-scoring player Darcy Cameron.

Problem comes in that if Kreuzer doesn't play..
do you trade Darcy Cameron to Tim English, then find a new captain as you can't loophole any other rookies as they are all playing
or cop a 0 for Kreuzer. bank Dustys 160 as captain and hold a trade.

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 15:38

    If Kruger doesn’t play, he is your C loophole

      Derek · 30/03/2018 at 15:40

      You might need to trade Cameron to English.

      Have English on Bench with E and put the C on Kruzer

Johno · 30/03/2018 at 15:14

News on Kreuz?

hpl1 · 30/03/2018 at 15:18

What do people think of these moves?
Brodie (missed trading him out last week) -> J.Stephenson this round.
Next round thinking
Libba -> Cripps, Parker or Jack Steven
Lambert -> ?. Tossing up between Billings or going uber POD Curnow.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 15:24

Lucky Nank got off. Was worried there.

    neil demons delight · 30/03/2018 at 15:45

    yeah great but nothing in it really.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 15:54

    Hey Shake, I thought he'd be ok, he went over the top of him trying to avoid big hurt, if he'd dug the knee into his back , he would've been in trouble bigtime.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 15:57

    Bloody relieved too Shake. You never know with that Match Review Panel. Had he missed for a week would you have copped a donut or traded in English to get his points and cash generation for the following week?

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 17:52

      Worked last night so only got to see the incident this morn. I thought it was touch and go there. Glad he only got away with a fine.

Mike · 30/03/2018 at 15:40

Should I trade Naughton and LDU to Bonner and English via Garlett? I'm not sure whether it is worth the trade yet, if I do it this week I can be prepared to do any trades next week if I need to.

My team currently is (with 79.3k leftover):
DEF: Laird Hibberd Sicily Doedee Murray Finalyson (Naughton Murphy)
MID: Dusty Titch Fyfe Bont Parker Cripps Brayshaw Kelly (LDU Banfield Holman)
FWD: Heeney Billings Petracca Smith Garlett Giles-Langon (Ryan Fritsch)

    Nath · 30/03/2018 at 15:45

    Every sensible head in this caper says hold your trades this week ( unless long term injury). So it’s up to you, but I know what I’m doing

    dontblushbaby · 30/03/2018 at 15:52

    I'm holding Naughton on the bench but can loop if needed ,but if he doesn't score well he will become Murphy next week

    hedski · 30/03/2018 at 16:11

    Who are your rucks? If you have Kreuz I'd do the English trade if Kreuz is a late out.

TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 16:00

Fyfe, Billings, or Cripps for VC? My heart says Fyfe, but my gut says Billings!

Dammit, I hate choosing VC's…..

    Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 16:06

    Iv thrown the vc onto cripps atm. Could still turn into neale or zorko tho. Im not sold on billings yet.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 16:10

    Go Billings mate..you know you want to..and go the Sainters!

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 16:14

      You sold me. Billings it is!! Lock him in Eddy!

        INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 16:15

        Fyfe has my vote

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 16:31

    I have the VC on Fyfe,but only because I don't have Dusty.

Boozer · 30/03/2018 at 16:51

Is there a gale blowing at Etihad? Shocking game.

MBontempelli · 30/03/2018 at 16:53

I don't think I've ever seen a lower score for 7kicks,2hb,2Mk,3clearances,1takl @ 66% only 28SC

gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 16:54

Own up if you have the VC on Billings…… Going total shite

    Defying_Madness · 30/03/2018 at 16:59

    Yeah I do

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:02

    Even worse I have Billings as my F1 instead of Buddy.Did have him at F2 but traded out Buddy for McLean just before the start of round one so I would have a bit of cash in the bank.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 17:12

    Yep.. Absolutely putrid start. Prick better clean up his act in the second half.

    hedski · 30/03/2018 at 17:36

    Yeah I do.
    Now to pick from Cripps, Kelly, Tobias, Gawn, Fyfe, Danger for the armband.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/03/2018 at 17:41

    Was always gonna be Cripps as VC this week. Look what he did against the reining premiers. Time to tee off against the suns.
    I have billings but dont think he is quite worthy of a VC badge yet.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 30/03/2018 at 18:00

      Wanted to go Oliver into Fyfe but games to close together. So now will go Cripps into either Oliver Fyfe or maybe Gawn.

Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 17:01

hunter clarke any danger of touching the footy?

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:13

    I wasn't sure if he was on the ground,was going to trade him after his 40 but decided to wait a week,he will be going out next week to whoever is on the bubble that I don't have.

      Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 17:43

      Hi John, looks like he's not the young gun he was touted as pre-season, probably needs to go back to 2's for awhile.

        JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:47

        He was the last one I picked in the mids,mainly because I didn't know who else to get and at least he was named for round one.Been on the bench both times so no harm done.

gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:05

I warned all of you not to pick Saints players

    Defying_Madness · 30/03/2018 at 17:09

    Most of the saints players are doing good though?

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:09

    Webster is going alright,sitting on 70pts

      gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:12

      He won't do that every week JD

        JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:16

        I know but still a good score,I only have Billings and Clark,next week I will only have Billings.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 17:14

    I have one. Looks like its one too many………..

    hedski · 30/03/2018 at 17:38

    Dunno Gator, Savage 92 last week, 50 at half time. Have Billings too, he can still salvage a decent score if he PULLS HIS FINGER OUT.

      gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:47

      Not looking good Hedski

    Claire · 30/03/2018 at 18:02

    I took your advice Gator.

      gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 18:06

      Well done Claire… Now you see what I mean with the Saints.. They may go big one week and they will go missing for a few.. Not good enough for SC

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 18:45

    You know it's a crap team for supercoach when the 3 highest scorers are Geary Carlisle and Webster…all defenders who didn't defend sh*t

      gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 18:53

      Yep that's righ trussty

Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 17:06

The roos goalkicking is bloody putrid 1.9

    Kyle · 30/03/2018 at 17:10

    Saints are no better

TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 17:10

Billings use of the footy is absolutely atrocious!! Get your act together. Fark me!

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 17:18

    Sorry about the advice mate, didn't expect him to lay a big turd like this, shocking game all round.

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 17:31

      No dramas at all Russty. He lifted a little during the end of that second quarter. He seems to be covering a lot of the ground, so with a bit of luck he may still get to 90 odd. Not enough to salvage the VC, but at least not a TURD.

    Defying_Madness · 30/03/2018 at 17:22

    He should still get 80-90 odd, not a VC score but not the worst score ever.

      Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 17:24

      Hope so DM…jeez he's smelly at the moment.

gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:25

He may come out in 2nd half and go ape shit DM… wouldn't surprise me

Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 17:30

Fat Jack Steven and Chubby McCartin are looking like potatoes. How does McCartin get a game? I've seen Dutch tourists on StK beach with more AFL talent than that massive spud

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 17:38

    McCartin is turning into a real flop for their owners. He looks overweight and lethargic. I hope Higgo didnt get sucked in. Hehehe

    PeterDutton · 30/03/2018 at 17:46

    leave McCartin alone at least he's not a cry-baby Aussie cricketer. That entire team are as dodgy as politicians and softer than tissue paper.
    The toughest Australian Cricketer of the past 5-years is that bit of sandpaper.
    White South African Farmers is what Australian Football needs

      Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 17:50

TommyC99 · 30/03/2018 at 17:35

Pick 2 pls
Holman, brayshaw, banfield, Dow

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 17:44

    Holman and Brayshaw are on the ground for me.

INPieman · 30/03/2018 at 17:36

2-10-22 each at HT. Good Friday just found a way to get even more boring

    Tibor · 30/03/2018 at 20:18

    Could all be a conspiracy to force them to open the pub pieman. The only way to make footy more boring would be to get Ross Lyon involved

SCdonkey · 30/03/2018 at 17:43

So much of all the talk Saints will shit all over north. As North supporter we are crap as hell, but this game is boring to watch. Maybe because i don't have any North or Saints in my team.

    gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 19:16

    A very wise move scd

    It was North who lobbied the AFL for Good Friday for a long time.

Great, now the saints look like knocking me out of my knock out footy tipping.
Feel like knocking some one out.

    Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 18:55

    Knockout McCartin Hedski, I hear than you can do it to him via sms

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 19:16

      Ha ha. Nice.

AuroraBorealis?! · 30/03/2018 at 18:24

If you asked me which team had played in a swimming pool in cairns 6 days ago i'd say StKilda, they look lethargic and awful.

Mr.Brightside · 30/03/2018 at 18:31

Ok, so the Billings VC didn’t work , who do we turn to Titch , Max ,J.Kelly,

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 18:47

    I will probably just go for Titch who should get 110+. Dangerfield might be down a bit on output coming back from that hammy.

      Ja191 · 30/03/2018 at 18:53

      I see dangerfield knocking out a 150-200 and everybody moving heaven and earth to get him back in

        TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 19:05

        I have Danger. Just want to have one look at Danger before making him captain. Just going to be conservative and stick with Titch.

TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 18:44

What a disgraceful performance by the Saints. Unbelievable.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 18:47

    You're not wrong..pathetic effort, bottom 4 at best this year I'm thinking.

    Skinny McYhin · 30/03/2018 at 18:53

    I think the french word for StKilda is LeCrap`

    AuroraBorealis?! · 30/03/2018 at 18:53

    There goes my multi…
    didnt even make it past the second leg

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 19:11

      At least u got that far….bloody tiges

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 20:43

    Didn’t see any of it. It sounded earful to watch.

    Thought Saints would have won and won well.

      Maverick_ · 30/03/2018 at 21:47

      tomorrow’s papers will be all about saints bein horrible an that’s fair but north’s tackling & pressure were big factors to there mistakes and they ran hard for each other n pulled the saints pants down in the 2nd half. It was saints game to lose today and north Took it to them from the first bounce they deserve some credit I think.

gator59 · 30/03/2018 at 18:52

Yep agree with you Russty

TOPHAWK1 · 30/03/2018 at 18:53

Yep, looks that way. They will be under the pump this week after that effort. Mark my words. I did not see that coming. We are lucky to get low 80's out of Billings in the end.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 19:11

    I have him and Armitage, what do I do with him now?..he won't make any cash dishing up garbage scores like that.

      hedski · 30/03/2018 at 19:18

      Armo to CEY Russty. No Crouching brothers for a month, could score well and make some nice kang. Might do that with Brayshaw if he doesn't perform this week.

        Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 19:24

        Cheers Hed, will consider that for sure.

Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 19:02

On a more truly tragic event, am I the only one who noticed that Steve Smith was trying to make everybody feel sorry for him for being a cheat? Now the media is jumping in with supportive coverage. Great PR management strategy but FFS he's a cheat and it obviously wasn't the first time. Why else were there 30+ cameras on Bancroft if the opposition hadn't seen something previously and alerted them?

You're a weak canine smith

    BrownlowBoy · 30/03/2018 at 19:46

    Can cricket not creep into Supercoach? This is about the only place I don't see/hear about the cricket.

    GloryDays90 · 30/03/2018 at 19:49

    And you are a piece of crap! He is not a cheat! Whole thing has been taken way over the top. And the fact that you bring that on here is ridiculous! This is supercoach not the news

      Holty · 30/03/2018 at 20:03

      Well said. Long story short they all do it. If Smith stayed quiet Bancroft would of got a slap on the wrist by ICC. Now lets get back to the main business, my bloody putrid Supercoach Team. Its doing my head in.

        Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 21:57

        I've not played cricket in every test nation and doubt that you have either so what you actually mean is EVERY AUSTRALIAN cricket team cheats. Unless you have video evidence that proves that other countries cheat at cricket as well. Idoubt that you'd so supportive of an Indian spinner roughing up the ball against Australia.
        Our national teams defense to being caught cheating is that everybody else does it, pfft typical.

        Oh well smith can always get a job with the bombers they love cheats who blame everybody else and make themselves out to be victims

          Holty · 31/03/2018 at 01:51

          Wow. i never said what they did wasnt wrong. All i'm saying is the punishment is too severe based on what others have received as penalties. It is a common practice in the game and thats why the ICC dont penalise anyone harshly when they are caught. And yes all countries do it. And not exactly sure why you mentioned India but if my memory serves me correctly, Dravid who is a legend of the game was caught for ball tampering. Dravid was captain at the time and got a 1 match suspension. Warner and Smith have a year.

    Tibor · 30/03/2018 at 20:11

    We all move on and forgive far too quickly skinny. Look how fast we accepted drug cheats back into footy. Short memories

    Big boy · 30/03/2018 at 20:13

    Skinny, everyone has an opinion but yours is crap. I am not happy with what Warner instigated but they didn’t murder anyone. The penalty is way over the top especially when EVERY country has used means to reverse swing.

      Skinny McThin · 30/03/2018 at 21:56

SCdonkey · 30/03/2018 at 20:12

Didn't realize that Oliver was a POD until i saw Derek's comment. Checked my team and I have 5 PODs, is that a bad thing?

    JohnDJ59 · 30/03/2018 at 20:17

    Depends who they are and if they are performing.

      SCdonkey · 30/03/2018 at 20:24

      Oliver, McLean, Curnow, Taylor and Rocky. Rocky might go if he has another poor score for Dusty will still have over $300K for Danger later on.

        JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 01:55

        I don't mind the first three,I have McLean,did have Oliver until there was doubt his fitness and had Curnow at F4 for a while but went with Smith in the end.

    Derek · 30/03/2018 at 20:39

    I’m still amazed Oliver is in less than 5% of teams

    I’ve got Oliver, Parker, Mills, Shaw and Lobb all under 8%.

      SCdonkey · 30/03/2018 at 20:51

      Yeah! I was really surpised, i would've thought Oliver will have more owners than Kelly.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 30/03/2018 at 21:08

      I think his injury in JLT scared people away, theres no doubt he's a gun though. He will probably come in for Matt Crouch for me next week.

        David C · 31/03/2018 at 10:52

        M Crouch will be a good POD in about 5 weeks after everyone trades him out.

    Finnius · 30/03/2018 at 22:13

    I have 4 – and I am pretty happy with that number as it should help me get up in a few league matches this year. Howe, Oliver, Kreuzer and Walters are all under 10% ownership, and I see them top 8 in their respective positions (Kreuz top 2).

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 22:15

    Tis a good thing sir…I notice, many many teams are very similar this year, gotta have some PODS to differentiate yourself from them.

      JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 16:50

      Hey Russty just put your team up against mine, you have 12 different players compared to mine.

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 17:14

        Hey John, cripes that's a lot! lol, hope it works out for you/me/us haha

          JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 17:27

          Not going all that great at the moment Russty,with Crouch going down,Billings not turning up.Won't be getting near my score from the first round and that wasn't all that flash either compared to other scores.

BundyBear · 30/03/2018 at 20:57

I just come here for the laughs. Seems everyone is an expert till their players stink it up. And then its someone elses fault. Anyway carry on. Keep me amused.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 22:17

    I think everyone has a Team where their players stink it up at some point…unless you have the perfect team from round one?

      Tyruddanaut · 30/03/2018 at 22:50

      Yeah nah I’m scoring 2600 every week

    Iridium192 · 31/03/2018 at 10:19

    Finally a like minded subscriber, well said Bundy. They get players based on the opinions of others then complain when it all goes pair shaped. Pick your team, back your understanding of the players and the scoring system. At the end of the day I live and die by my own opinion, research and knowledge. Never coach by consensus or they would need 50 cars as all will be the same teams.

    D C · 31/03/2018 at 10:29

    Well said Bundy about time this site gets real and tells it how it really is. Keep it coming and f÷€ k them if they cry.

must say what a terrible way to show case our game today, well done north win ugly doesnt matter you got a great win, saints wtf was that didnt want it ,i feel good friday may be heading in a different direction next year

Maverick_ · 30/03/2018 at 21:35

Ben Brown is a serious star of the Comp in an avg side. Lynch isn’t worth 1.5m p/yr if brown just signed a deal 6 months ago for half that a season & I can’t split the two of them.

    Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 22:13

    Hey Mav, wouldn't mind if big Ranga Brown was in the Saints' forward line, it'd be nice to have someone down there who can take a mark and kick a straight Goal!

      Tyruddanaut · 30/03/2018 at 22:49

      Saints had good accuracy today! They just didn’t want to hit the guy sitting behind the goal posts

        Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 23:05

        Or any of the slow motion spuds running around on the field, pretending to be Footy players. 🙂

          Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:32

          I’m surprised the security didn’t jump on them

    Tibor · 31/03/2018 at 00:30

    Don't know if he's quite a serious star of the comp but has a red hot go and can mark the pill. Plenty nowhere near as good as him who are pumped up by media.

    How good is Waite when he's on. Some of his field kicking today was absolutely elite. Pity he is such a nut case and will probably spud up for the next month

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:33

    Lynch is the only thing that Gold Coast have. He is the face of the club and they can’t being in any free agents so he will have to do

Russty_ · 30/03/2018 at 23:11

Billy Longer's down with a Groin issue, tragedy..and Paddy McFatarse probably to be suspended, maybe we could use the Lamp Post and the big bag of Lard in the skip-bin out in the back Carpark instead.

    neil demons delight · 30/03/2018 at 23:51

    Hopefully my Pies can get up against the Giants this arvo.

      INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 07:23

      Speaking of humour Rocksta the Pies to get up against the Giants is a chuckle. They will get flogged

        Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:30

        I think resigning Buckley was the best thing they could’ve done. It doesn’t matter that he dropped them from finals to bottom 6 in a few years he can come back and win them a granny. They are the Richmond of 2018

        Rocksta · 31/03/2018 at 11:55

        Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:31

        Looking at St Kilda today….. there isn’t any competition for wooden spoon

Doc_1 · 31/03/2018 at 01:13

Lads, looking at correctives.

Are any of the following must haves?

Bonner
Garlett
Murphy

    Maverick_ · 31/03/2018 at 01:51

    Wouldn’t say any are crucial
    Bonner we need a second look at still
    murphy definitely a nice scorer for his price will gererate some decent cash he’s probably the one u need. but wouldn’t be burning trades willy nilly.. who you offloadin first? Garlett same as bonner need another look n not vital unless u really spudded ya starting rookies

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:28

    Garlett is a must have. Great JS
    Don’t know which Murphy coz there are about 10
    Bonner is great but give him another week. If he scores 85+ he is in

      Doc_1 · 31/03/2018 at 11:16

      Murphy from Adelaide.
      Was not going to worry about him but after his 80 Thursday night at only 102K has me thinking.
      If I want Garlett as well, probably have to move Garlett in before he plays today.

        JugHead · 31/03/2018 at 11:18

        Still have to see another game, but I like the look of Garlett. Good JS and the DPP is handy.

        Derek · 31/03/2018 at 11:56

        Murphy could be out of team. Only had 10 touches. Tried hard and kicked a couple of goals which should get him a game next week, but wouldn’t be bribing him in now.

Duckky · 31/03/2018 at 02:14

After being talked up by a mate who reckoned this guy was going to have his breakout this year – I have Aish and an empty feeling.

Do I trade him for Howard (ruck duties until Ryder returns) or Zac Guthrie (frees up $)?

What are your thoughts please community?

    INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 07:13

    The good old mate who talks you into a spud pick. Nasty. Get rid of him ASAP. Don't mind the Howard pick or Zac Guthrie. Both look considerably better options than Aish. Howard might have a more important role to play at least in the short term

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 31/03/2018 at 08:06

    yes always happens doesn't it.. bye the way have you heard about a must have cant go wrong TOM MCDONALD Go for HOWARD

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:27

    Yeah nah I’m saying if you can get Howard, that’s some point gen but Guthrie is more cash gen

TommyC99 · 31/03/2018 at 08:02

If kruez doesn’t get up, I’ll have to trade Olango – English, losing my loophole (got keeffe but got no one who plays before him). Would you make Fyfe, Danger or Titch C?

    INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 09:00

    Titch for safety. Not sure what to expect from Fyfe or Danger yet

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:25

    I have all three so my opinion is Danger, I got him as a permanent-captain and I’m too stubborn not to use him. I reckon he’ll average 128 this year so his captaincy can be relied on

    Multi_ · 31/03/2018 at 10:02

    Agree with INPie Titch for safety unless your keen to roll the dice Fyfe may go big

Dave C · 31/03/2018 at 08:38

I know most of you are soft and can't handle feedbak unless kissin ars so I'll be gentle as poss.

Billings as vc what a bunch of flogs u are. Where's that derek that rants and raved about the kangas to tired after playing in a swamp. Ppppllleease shut up and supply only GOOD advice backed up by real evidence.

Have a nice easter duds

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:22

    Real evidence is that teams usually perform worse after small breaks
    Real evidence is that a tired North team means that the ball is up forward for the saints more
    Real evidence is that this gives Billings more of the ball to use and score with.

    Real evidence is that you’re bitter since you probably chose Billings as VC or even C
    Real evidence is that you can’t make your own decisions so you rely on the decisions of others in compensation

      Dave C · 31/03/2018 at 09:42

      ha ha ha good one mate, appreciate the honest reply. Na didn't fall for billings he's a bit over rated. I've got fyfe and danger for vc & c. If it doesn't work out feel free to rip into me, love it. By the way I do make my own decisions I just check this site for the little real advice just gota find it, cheers

    Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:23

    But thank you for saying ‘have a nice Easter ’

    Multi_ · 31/03/2018 at 09:59

    Your a flog Dave apart from the stats which the boys do a lot of work putting into the likes of the captains article the rest is opinion or educated guess.
    Why do you bother reading the comments if all you want is fact?
    Derek makes a lot of good points like a few main stayers on here not always going to get it right but again it’s an opinion.

    Claire · 31/03/2018 at 10:06

    Derek is one of the most helpful people to SC learners like me. He is always constructive and has never slagged anyone.

      INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 10:15

      Spot on Claire. Lots of no life trolls on here. Unfortunately these types of comments are common

        D C · 31/03/2018 at 10:27

        No life LMAO idiot. The only time you guys get critical is when someone says it how it is . You sit on here most of your time kissin butt and ignore whats going on in the real world. Keep it coming losers. SC66 and SC what's his name coped it from you toads for stating REAL facts so go back to your caves and keep kissin that butt. Mmmmwwaaah

          David C · 31/03/2018 at 11:06

          Did you forget to take your medication this morning? You've got some issues.

          SC_Kev7 · 31/03/2018 at 11:28

          You're allowed to disagree all you want, DC. It's when you be all condescending about it people don't respond well to that.

          Coaches usually take a flyer on their VC choice anyway, after Billings exploded last week he was a good left field choice rather than playing it safe with Fyfe like you are.

            D C · 31/03/2018 at 11:35

            Boo hoo Kev want a tissue with that mate? there you go now go have a nap its ok.

      gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 11:53

      Agree with you Claire and Pieman with out Derek and all the other great regulars on this forum where would one turn to, to get great advice… Not saying we always have to do what we preach but is a great learning tool to help structure your side… Great interaction with other great coaches is what we like and look forward to every day… As we have all said there's nothing set in concrete in this great game and you don't always do what we have said… If you have a hunch about a player do your research and if it's a yay or nay then do what you feel is right.. After all it's your own side and we don't need critics to tell us otherwise on what they think….. Have a great Easter all fellow and gals S COACHERS….. Cheers Gator

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 11:26

    Montagna came out and said the exact same thing about Nth playing in Cairns. He said he thought it would have played against Nth coming back from playing in those conditions. It looks like you were waiting for a post like what Derek said so you could jump all over it. By the way l thought it would have played against Nth to!!!!

      Derek · 31/03/2018 at 11:35

      I reckon if it was later in the season North might have been struggling. Just the second week it might not have had the effect it would after a few more games. I didn’t see the game but it seems like Nirth finished the stronger.

      Maybe they will feel it next week, sorta delayed reaction.

        D C · 31/03/2018 at 11:41

    PuntRoadRoar · 31/03/2018 at 11:31

    Only one flog in this conversation Dave. Have a look in the mirror and you will see him.
    Everybody has to own their own choices, and sometimes they pay off sometimes they don't. More often than not though the info provided in here proves invaluable, and no-one signs anything that states any advice comes with a guarantee,
    If Billings HAD gone big you would probably be crying because you didn't have him.

      D C · 31/03/2018 at 11:46

      Just maybe you would of thought of the obvious billings has a big game last week this week he gets some attention. And I'm saying when they get it wrong no one says anything, to soft and cozy. A little criticism is good helps you think a bit more before spewing out crap

    redherringfc · 31/03/2018 at 12:39

    Hi dave, thanks for the feedback.

    I’ll keep an eye out for your, evidence backed, words of wisdom in the coming weeks.

    No point in this comment you’ve said people posting comments with no advice or research, but where are your comments and advice? If you want to walk the walk bring something to the community.
    The name is Sc_Wow btw

      SC_Sixty6 · 31/03/2018 at 13:30

      D C it's good you realise the research, facts and damn good solid advice the myself and Wow bring to this community but you may have stepped over the line with your insults and abuse.

      Sure I'll rip into a 'team' posted. But not personal. In the end it's for their personal benefit as they can take it or leave it. Take a leaf from our book and leave the personal agenda out of it.

        D C · 31/03/2018 at 13:43

        Ok 66 thats ripe coming from you. How did i step over the line champ? I called a few people out on turd advice and called em flogs which relates to the advice. Maybe u should read the posts and check whos stepped over the line. If some little turd sparks up and wants to call me a C for no reason and u think its ok it says a lot about who u are.

        All said and done you cant have your Ying without a bit of Yang. I think my jobs done here, welcum. Have a great easter.

          SC_Sixty6 · 31/03/2018 at 13:53

          I'm feeling a rather large tension in-between your loins DC. Ripe coming from a decorated SC expert helping out a community? Ok champ how about you give something to the community rather than go on a rant and whinge because you make a shitehouse SC team and you've already thrown in the towel.

          Jog on! Also no one called you a C. The question was asked….never actually presented as see you next Tuesday in 4 letter form.

            gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 13:58

TBone · 31/03/2018 at 09:29

Hey lads, do you reckon Garlett on field or Giles-Langdon? Murray or Finlayson? Can’t loop them.

Cheers 🙂

    INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 10:13

    Garlett & Finlayson is that was my dilema

      TBone · 31/03/2018 at 11:10

      Cheers Pieman! Was swinging that same way

      Derek · 31/03/2018 at 11:42

      When do we know the Cats final team. Need to know if O’Conner is playing or a loophole for Murphy.

      Murray and Finlayson both playing at 4.30. If O’Conner not playing i’ll Take Murphy’s 80 but have to decide which one or Murray or Finlayson to put on field.

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 11:29

    I'd personally be going Murray over Finlayson

      Derek · 31/03/2018 at 11:44

      Both GWS and Collingwood give up a lot of SC points to defenders. Might be a good day to have them both on field

Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 09:37

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 10:54

Dangerfield, Titch, Cripps, Parker or even Fyfe as captain this week? The obvious choice normally would be Danger, but because he is returning from a hamstring injury, might it be strategically wise to just hold off one week to have a look at him? What are others contemplating?

    Holty · 31/03/2018 at 10:59

    Dont have him but if i did i wouldnt put the C on him. They may play him forward to ease him back into it, could ping the hammy again or even rest him late if the game is over. Although if there were any doubts in his fitness, im sure they wouldnt play him.

      JugHead · 31/03/2018 at 11:21

      Agree. I'm tossing up between Gawn and Titch

    LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:23

    C on Danger. He'll score at least 140 I reckon

    SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 11:23

    If I had Danger personally i wouldn't put C on him this week as you mentioned about his hammy, there's also the likes of Duncan, Selwood, Gaz and Kelly competing for the points on top of that he may spend some time up fwd.

    Titch no C for me this week, you seen what the Cats did to Sloane last year. He'll get a fair bit of attention, Cats brought Blicavs in to do that tagging rotation as they did to Sloane.

      TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 11:40

      Good point Doncs. No doubt Titch will cop heat after his 54 pozzie effort last week. I just have a bad feeling about the Cats- Hawks game and that another better captain option is sitting elsewhere right under my nose. Fyfe's ceiling is also huge and I can see him smashing out a 150+ score against the Bombers tonight at the new stadium. The stage is set in front of 60,000 Freo supporters for Fyfe to go BANG! Cheers mate.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 11:30

    Go Danger since you have him. Fyfe l think will turn it around aswell looked to have played frustrated last week.

      TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 11:44

      I am leaning to go to Fyfe. If the bloke cant fire up tonight against the Bombers who are not a noted tagging side, and playing in front of 60,000 Dockers supporters, then he is either carrying a niggle or he needs to go to a sports psych. Anyways, still time to think and ponder. Cheers Shake.

LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:20

Hi community. I'm in a bit of a pickle and can't decide what to do. I have potentially every player playing this week including all my bench players (rookies). I had the emergency on Doedee who scored 115. I can't loophole to get that. I had the VC on Dusty who scored 160. So I can't get loophole that. I've got the C on Danger at the moment. No trades yet. I was thinking should I move on Naughton (DEF bench)? Or Barry from Port Adelaide? To a SWINGING DEF/MID non playing rookie? My team is looking Solid otherwise. Just not sure if I should waste the trade on a non scoring loophole to get Doedee's score and Dusty's score for C

    LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:22

    I'm sitting in 11,000 overall with a 2301 last week. I wanted to hold trades as I don't need to trade. But hoping Danger will go 160+ is a big ask

    Borko · 31/03/2018 at 11:29

    Tempting, but don't do it! You may be down 100 points (50 in DEF and 50 on the captain) but a trade is worth more than 100 points. That's one donut in the ruck in R17 (that trade will be much more valuable then). You are off to a good start … its a long season!

      LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:45

      I have DEF: Naughton, Doedee (E) on the bench MID: Banfield (E), L Fogarty, Barry FWD: Waterman(E) , Venables all playing. L Fogarty is on an extended bench but he played well last week so I don't see the Cats dropping him but I could be wrong

    Derek · 31/03/2018 at 11:37

    Do you have English at R3?

      LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:46

      English at R3

    INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 11:45

    If you have Sicily you could bring Keefe in to create the swing between Fwd & Def & catch the scores that way. If you don't have Sicily then don't bother. You won't have 30 playing players for long

      LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:46

      I have Sicily in DEF

        TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 11:58

        Then you might want to consider Pieman's advice. Trade out a dodgy rook, trade in Keeffe, swing Sicily Forward. Keeffe will then be in your backline, whack him on field as he is an emergency for GWS (Watch late changes before game) and whack the C on him to get Dusty's score and leave the E on Doedee to get his score. Walla!!! But one warning- DO NOT EXECUTE THIS TRADE until after the late changes are announced for this game. If Keeffe is a late in, then you are screwed as you cannot reverse the trade. Good luck!

          LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 12:08

          That's not a bad option actually…..

          Derek · 31/03/2018 at 12:26

          Wait to see if Fogarty names.

          Does that happen before the GWS game?

            hedski · 31/03/2018 at 12:53

            I think its probably around 5 o'clock so game will have started.

    SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 11:46

    435 points is a lot of points to pass, personally I'd use that one trade on a rookie who you think that has poor JS. Get Mihocek or O'Connor who i think will get a game soon.

    Holty · 31/03/2018 at 11:52

    If you have no loophole options, id seriously consider what you are proposing. I personally find it valuable having that loophole option.
    Agree also with what borko said. A trade is not worth a 100 points but having that loophole option throughout the season could be 100 points a week. 2300 points a season i think is worth that trade.

      LUKE · 31/03/2018 at 11:58

      Bloody tempting. Something is stopping me from hitting that trade button. I'll wait till teams are announced later today for the cats game. See if L Fogarty plays. Surely one of those rookies in my team gets dropped. I have Fritsch and D Fogarty on field. Finlayson, Murray on field. Brayshaw, Holman, T Kelly on field…. I ran with Danger on the bench last week and still scored 2301

        Holty · 31/03/2018 at 12:17

        Bloody good score. I scored 2105 and missed the carnage. Do have 482k in the bank (dont ask) however so will bring someone in to hopefully improve the team.

TBone · 31/03/2018 at 11:58

Bloody Monday games! Need to know if O’Connor is playing or not so I can loop him to get L. Murphy’s score. Otherwise I’ll just roll with Murray on the field. Any Geelong fans know if he’s likely to play or not?

BrownlowBoy · 31/03/2018 at 12:21

    Kelly lock. Toss a coin with Brayshaw & Holman

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:09

    I am going Holman and KElly.

    Johno · 31/03/2018 at 12:48

    I think I'll hold and trade Cameron to English for cover

      Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:08

      Like this more as English will be a solid cash cow as well.

        Sc_Wow · 31/03/2018 at 13:26

        I’ve traded Kruse, groin injury for a big man is no good. I don’t see English being a solid replacement, had a decent game last week, but I don’t see him only having the 1 clanger every game, and see his scores being around the 50 mark

          Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 13:28

          Did you trade him to Nic Nat Wow?

            Sc_Wow · 31/03/2018 at 13:33

            Personally I went Martin, he should be solo ruck for the foreseeable future, and he’s in good shape. I’d love to pick Nic Nat but injury worries me

            SC_Sixty6 · 31/03/2018 at 13:35

            I went to Nic Nat madness! I worry about his injury but he looked good over the weekend. His TOG will only increase as the weeks go by. As will his score output.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:37

    I don't have Kreuz but if I did, I'd get Nicnat..Kreuz could still be struggling with a bad groin for weeks to come, it could even ruin his season, Nicnat's just come back from 2 years out and gets 113 from 56% TOG…he'll only get better and in full flight, is as good or better than Kreuz when he's fit.
    Plus you get the bonus extra 140 grand to spend elsewhere.

trexrex · 31/03/2018 at 12:41

Having a Captain Loophole blank. With Krezuer now out, how do I keep Dusty's (VC) score?

My rucks were set as:

R1: Krezuer
R2: Olango (C)
R3: Gawn (E)

How does the E on Gawn work? I'm worried if he comes in to replace Kreuzer, then Olango stays as Captain with a donut.

Or should I just trade Kreuzer?

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 12:55

    Hi Rex, you could Keep Kreuzer with The C on him, trade Olango to English and have the E on him.

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 12:55

    You could trade Olango to English and put the C on Kreuzer?

BlueBaggerJosh · 31/03/2018 at 12:50

guys need some quick help, out of these options which one would you take?
Option 1- Olango to english losing loophole but covering Kreuzer
Option 2-Cop a donut, hold trades and hope he is back next week which he should be
Option 3-Kreuzer down to Nic nat and with the cash Weitering to Simpson.
Thoughts?

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:07

    Quite like option 3 as you need to correct picking Weitering and Nic Nat should hopefully build up his TOG next couple of weeks.

TommyC99 · 31/03/2018 at 12:51

SO kruezer is out. Was going to trade Olango to English at r3, but don’t want to lose my loophole as Keeffe is the only non playing player I got.
Really tempted to go down to Nic nat because
1. I can keep my olango loophole
2. Nic Nat still fits my bye structure
3. He is underpriced for his potential.
Thoughts pls?

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:03

    All good points Tommy, makes sense and could pay off, not sure how long Kreuz will be out, groins are tricky injuries.
    Nicnat smashed it last week, playing little more than half a game.

      TommyC99 · 31/03/2018 at 13:11

      Cheers for the reply russty, so you would go with Kruez – Nic Nat?

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:21

        I would Yeah Tommy, good chance to make some cash too, but it's your call mate, good luck.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 12:57

Had Cripps as vc 🤔

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 13:01

    He'll still kill it Shake.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:22

      Not sure. I dont have no other real options wanted Oliver into Fyfe but games to close together. Kruez out Witts will dominate you’d think.

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:23

        Casboult will be doing most of the ruck work, not sure if he's any good at tapouts or not.

    neil demons delight · 31/03/2018 at 16:42

    Qawn into Tich but toss up with danger

      hedski · 31/03/2018 at 17:14

      Danger is my cap Neil. I reckon hell kill it

Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 13:02

No cash so I can use two trade to get English in or 1 trade to just trade Kreuzer to NicNat

Thoughts community I am panicking

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 13:13

    Tough call DM. 2 trades for English would give you ruck/fwd cover (assuming you bring in a r/f looper like Flynn) but it is 2 trades.
    Nic Nat has his own problems (possible resting or injury reoccurrence).
    Its a pity Nank, Sauce and Goldy have already played, leaves you only Stef and Witts really.
    Yeah I'd be panicking!! Good luck mate.

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:16

    I'd go Nic Nat – if you don't have any spare cash that extra dosh will make any other corrective you want to do a little easier as well. Risky but I can't see any other option if you don't want to cop the doughnut.

      Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 13:19

      It will also make it easier for me to bring in Danger

Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:06

Kreuz being out is a blessing in disguise for me as I can captain him to get Dusty's score as VC.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:11

    Nice!

      Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:15

      Have English at r3 as well so not too much damage done. I brought him in last week in the rolling lockouts as I saw Kreuzer would be out and knew that I would need some cover.

BrownlowBoy · 31/03/2018 at 13:16

If playing for leagues, I'd suggest holding Kreuzer. Just my take on the situation.

Clarky · 31/03/2018 at 13:25

Stuck with Kruez, should I:
1. Trade olango – English
2. Trade Kruez – Nic Nat (keeps my bye stricture)
Trade Kruez – Stef Martin (best ruck option but shares a bye with Kruez)

The sensible thing would be option 1 but I really don’t want to lose that loophole.

Thoughts guys?

    Clarky · 31/03/2018 at 13:26

    Sorry, stef shares a bye with Gawn*

    David C · 31/03/2018 at 13:34

    Get English for cover. What if you trade in Stef and he goes down?

Banga · 31/03/2018 at 13:35

Cant VC loophole, Fyfe, Titch or Danger C?

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 13:55

    Danger.

POTS · 31/03/2018 at 13:36

Sticking with Holman on field but interested in thoughts on Brayshaw (Freo), Banfiled or T Kelly for M8.
Thinking with Danger in and a possible run with role (on Titch) for Kelly, his scoring capacity may be more limited.

Vinny · 31/03/2018 at 13:43

LDU was looking the goods last night. Shows composure, great decision making and has some elite-like skills.

Was going to trade him if he had a poor week, but it looks like he might get a start next week.

What’s everyone general thoughts on the young lad?

    Maverick_ · 31/03/2018 at 13:45

    a future star. big body and tough! just needs a couple games to find his feet.

    Dogs · 31/03/2018 at 14:56

    I’ll be keeping him, good bounce back after a poor scoring first game.

TommyC99 · 31/03/2018 at 13:58

Who to put the C on?
Danger – trusty pick but coming back from injury, bit of uncertainty
Titch – in form but feel like cats won’t let him run free like the pies did
Fyfe – risky but feel like he will turn it on against a bombers side who doesn’t really tag.

Would love to hear your thoughts community

Neverweaken · 31/03/2018 at 14:10

Must get tattooed DON NOT GET CADDY The DPP and low 400s tease me. But cant see him doing anything exciting. 85-90 player at most. Now with a week off do I rage trade to English?
Or keep and trade Fogarty to English
Or Fogarty to English and just gives me enough to go Naughton to Laird but then no money in the bank for danger in a couple of weeks.
Dont ask why i didnt start with Laird. Especially how much on ball he played on Thursday

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 14:13

Holman trying to tag Cripps!! LOL Shelve that plan in the second quarter please. Holman on field and I need some touches out of him…..

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 14:18

    going pretty well out of it… I'll take 20 a quarter from a rookie 8 days a week.

      TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 14:21

      Got a couple of nice pozzies and the end of the quarter. He is up an running now.

        Derek · 31/03/2018 at 14:47

        Not watching game. Heard he was injured?

    Maverick_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:19

    Lynch with a lazy 75pts at quarter time to TH. jesus

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:56

      On 127 at Halftime wow!

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 14:18

Not a bad quarter by TJ Lynch. Just a lazy 76SC at quarter time……

    INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 14:30

    Could have done it for me last year! AHole

      hedski · 31/03/2018 at 14:33

      Agreed

      neil demons delight · 31/03/2018 at 16:46

      me too prick Had him all year sod it

Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:28

Last second decision to start Garlett on the pine.

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 14:33

    Nice.

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:40

      Jeez he nearly took the mark of the year just now.

        INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 14:44

        Benched him last minute as well. That leap was insane! The player was standing full vertical & he jumped on his head. WOW

          Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:47

          Total bummer he didn't glove it, would've been one of the highest marks ever I think. 🙂

            Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:58

            Goal of the year and mark of the year could have come in the 1st 2 rounds!

    Multi_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:53

    See I went the other way and last minute put him on field, paying the price for overthinking it as usual

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 14:46

Good call! Garlett nearly pulled of a spekkie for the ages though.

Moopp# · 31/03/2018 at 14:53

How many point chasers will snare Lynch next week. 6 goals to half time is amazing, but, only playing Carlto;, who aren’t called the Blues for nothing.

Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 14:53

What did all you Coaches end up doing with Kreuzer this week?
Kreuz to Nicnat?
Olango to English and hold Kreuz?
Kreuz to another Ruck and if so, who?
Do you still have a loop?

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 15:00

    Nothing. Held as already had English.

    Ja191 · 31/03/2018 at 15:05

    traded to witts

    Kyle · 31/03/2018 at 15:16

    Went olango to english and holding kreuzer

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 15:40

    Went to Nic Nat

    TommyC99 · 31/03/2018 at 15:58

    Brought in English at R3. If he’s out again next week I’ll be trading him

DavidSA · 31/03/2018 at 14:58

Most crazy stat for Lynch is that he has more disposals than 38 players at half time 😱

    TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 15:05

    Bloody incredible. Sitting on 128 SC at half time. At this rate he will challenge Jonathan Brown's 262 record set in 2006!

      Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 15:08

      he's making his 3,899 owners very happy at this stage.

      DavidSA · 31/03/2018 at 15:11

      He gotta have 22 touches 10 goals at least by games end
      Probably looking 190-210 range if it's the case
      But who knows

    Kyle · 31/03/2018 at 15:53

    I think more incredible is lynch has kicked atleast 4 goals in ever game bar 2 that he has played against them

Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 15:10

TOBY GREEN LATE OUT FML

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 15:13

Toby Greene a late withdrawal for GWS. WOW

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 15:16

    Ah crap, gotta take Fogs 47 now

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 17:09

      Bummer you have to take Fog's score over flog's, hopefully flog will be back next week for you so you don't have to use Fog's again, cause his score's have been bog.

        hedski · 31/03/2018 at 17:16

        Almost a Limerick there Russty.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 15:16

    What's wrong with him Hawk…did he punch someone on the way to the ground?

      Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 15:17

      tight hamstring.

      TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 15:22

      He bumped into Dave Warner. It resulted in a fight and he ended up with hammy tightness. LOL

    Matho · 31/03/2018 at 15:17

    Apparently another GWS player is also out?

      Fisherdan · 31/03/2018 at 15:23

      Just saw the other 1 was Collingwoods Ben Reid out for Tim Broomhead

    Fisherdan · 31/03/2018 at 15:18

    Who is in? Hope not Keefe. Wanted Murphy's 80.

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 15:20

      Corr

    Kyle · 31/03/2018 at 15:21

    I was hoping the supercoach gods would be kind to me after last weeks carnage. Boy was i wrong

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 15:53

    Was just saying lucky l had Garlett on the pine now l have Greene out! My Lord!! 🤦‍♂️

      gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 16:08

      Garlett sitting on a blistering 32 atm Shaker

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 16:29

        left Garlett as emg brought on Langdon instead.

          neil demons delight · 31/03/2018 at 16:57

          worth keeping Garlett as his dpp is invaluable later on Plenty to cull on the forwards Gator look under some rocks oyer there in Tassie and if a big frog jumps out kiss it — it might turn into a high jumping forward to replace the fat one cheers

          Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 17:30

          Not looking like he is going to go much better Shake…

Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 15:39

I don't have Cripps, Curnow and Simpson and I am starting to get a bit worried that I have none of them. Maybe Zerret down to one of them next week if he doesn't look alright.
They all look so good so having none of them might become a big problem.

    JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 16:22

    Depends who you have instead of them,other players are going alright as well.

    hedski · 31/03/2018 at 17:17

    Cripps DM

Ben · 31/03/2018 at 15:44

Boys Garlett is killing me but it was either him or one of the west coast players. Please get to 50 !!!

    Multi_ · 31/03/2018 at 15:54

    Same here Ben

Jim_bob321 · 31/03/2018 at 15:59

Well rip to Cripps VC…
Who would u guys trust, Fyfe or Mitchell?

    Ja191 · 31/03/2018 at 16:48

    i'd go safe with mitchell

Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 16:04

I'm going for a record this week, 0 out of 9 tips..would've been better off forgetting to do it lol

    gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 16:11

    I might have bolted to the lead by picking the Crows Russty

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 16:13

      Lol, yeah I thought well, it's the Crows at home but they're playing the mighty premiers, and then I thought the Saints could play football but was wrong about that too 🙂

Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 16:06

Holman's a ripper isn't he?..even as a tagger he's still scoring well.

    Derek · 31/03/2018 at 16:12

    His face looks like a tagger

      neil demons delight · 31/03/2018 at 17:00

      what's a taggers face look like does he need a can of paint

        Derek · 31/03/2018 at 18:10

        He finished game with black eye, cut eyebrow and bloody nose.

    JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 16:19

    Yep,sure is Russty,will be on field in my team as long as he keeps getting a game.

    TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 16:31

    Absolute must have. Ended up with 91 SC. Had him on field for the second week running. No complaints. Happy with Crippsy as well in a mediocre Carlton side.

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 16:35

      I don't have Cripps but it must be good to see that even when tagged he still scores 120 odd.

        Derek · 31/03/2018 at 18:11

        He does look good.

          Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 18:17

          Might have to do a sidewaysy this week Derek, Whitfield to Cripps although Whitfield did well last week..rage trade! lol

SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 16:13

The tagged and the tagger decent score, I'll take it.

hedski · 31/03/2018 at 16:19

O'Connor is an emergency for the cats for anyone interested before the Giants/Pies game.
Jack Henry debuting for cats.

    SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 16:33

    Hope O'connor doesn't play, need him for Holman score and he's my VC loophole.

      hedski · 31/03/2018 at 17:19

      Wouldn't discount him playing Donks, had Kreuz (expected) and Greene (not expected) already this round as late outs.

TheBenchmark25 · 31/03/2018 at 16:28

When your major pod hits 154 😍

    TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 16:34

    Jarryd Lions had a fantastic game. If he keeps that up, you will be laughing.

      TheBenchmark25 · 31/03/2018 at 17:42

      I didn't have the balls to do it last year after the bye rounds… open look on this year. I'm unintentionally staying away from the cookie cutter format
      Lyons unlucky last week in the flooded ground they played on

        Connor · 31/03/2018 at 17:45

        I liked him at Adelaide, last year nothing special – amazing potential in my books

Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 16:50

Lobb on -10 points…
Grundy is cleaning the floor with him.

    johnno2908 · 31/03/2018 at 17:57

    He has made a good comeback. Feel like he has been slightly hard done by. If Rance took those intercept marks…

    I was watching his score early. Went from -7 to -11 while he was resting in the forward line.

      Derek · 31/03/2018 at 18:08

      I thought Lobb had done a lot better than 38. I see why now if he was -10

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 19:44

        Really got schooled by Grundy today.

          Derek · 31/03/2018 at 19:48

          He looked ok. But not up to standard to match it with the big boys.

          Has Sinclair next week

    chris · 31/03/2018 at 19:46

    We should trade him out before he burns us again after that spud performance

Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 16:51

Grundy is going to go huge today without Cox. Maybe finally Buckley will realise that he has one of the best rucks in the comp at his disposal and should probably use him…

AuroraBorealis?! · 31/03/2018 at 17:45

God I feel bad for any treloar owners, on 18 points at 6 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. He burnt me bad last year and was promptly placed on the never again list,

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 17:47

Finlaysen not to be outdone is having a crack at the top scoring rookie for the round – he is coming for you doodee.

Murray – err not so much. Joys of rookies.
COGS put on the after burners that qtr.

Cripps as VC nearly there (kreuz out hurt him abit) but think i will roll the dice on a capt choice.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 17:55

    Not looking good with Murray is it..be lucky to get to 40 or 50 by the looks, Finlayson's a gun. 🙂

      Derek · 31/03/2018 at 18:07

      A minute before start I tried to put O’Conner on field instead of Murray to get Murphy score. It said too late. Have to take Murray’s score now. I think a lot of people will have him on field, but a 60 would be nice

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 18:12

        Ouch, I hate it when that happens Derek, hopefully he'll deliver something in the second half for us.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 18:10

      I had a bit more of a look at this Crowden lad (was my early looper – whoops)
      Anyway appears to be a bit of a contested beast who loves a cuddle (12 against crows last year made me sit up and take notice) all ticks for SC. Bit sloppy with disposal but ya get that from rookies.
      So as only rd 2 gonna give the lad a green light on ground up forward as has a game that should score well.
      Do me proud son …

        gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 19:53

        hope he goes well for you trigga

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 23:14

          Has a crack but had a few frees against.
          Lost out 30 points not going fritsch.
          Ahh well u gotta try these things made up for the chance with the 450 from my other 4 players tonight. 👍

Jim_bob321 · 31/03/2018 at 18:03

Fyfe Captain? Anyone gonna trust him?

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 18:13

    Not for me thanks Jim, gonna go with the Pod, Danger lol

    johnno2908 · 31/03/2018 at 20:24

    I’ve got the VC on him, so here’s hoping he goes large. Otherwise captain Titch

INPieman · 31/03/2018 at 18:05

Pendles in the Ruck. Nathan taking the p*ss on his way out. But how good is Finlayson. He is a General & enormous beast. Shit is he a player. Murray looking lost & overawed

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 18:11

    Pie u r generally pretty switched on with rookies.
    Know much about Crowden?

SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 18:42

Kelly low on possies, but laid 10 tackles. C'mon Kelly have good last qtr.

Daniel · 31/03/2018 at 18:59

Didn't start with Danger or Dusty, now that Ryder is injured, should I trade him to S.Martin and have 110k or Nicnat and have 185k for next week?

Flying Dutchman · 31/03/2018 at 19:01

In hindsight maybe Taranto was the best mid priced option this year, anyone with an underperforming mid could do well to trade him in – anyone considering?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 19:08

    Depends how Christensen goes this weekend but have the cash to go up tarranto which looks very tasty.

BrownlowBoy · 31/03/2018 at 19:13

Murray lifted which is good!

TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 19:17

Finlayson you bloody star!! On field and tonned up, Murray coming home like a steam train as well. Also on field. Not losing too many points on Murphy now. Good stuff.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 19:22

    Finlayson looks like a seasoned veteran..a bloody Jet!…stoked with Whitfield's effort in the last too, was thinking he was gonna spud it bigtime but came home strong 🙂

Ja191 · 31/03/2018 at 19:23

whitfield with the 60 pt last quater fuef

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:11

    Was getting ready to rage trade him too! haha

SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 19:24

VC on Kelly didn't worked out, putting my faith on Oliver as Captain this week.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:11

    Looking good for you Donkey…could end up huge, fingers crossed for ya.

      SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 22:31

      Tnx mate, rapt after scaling Oliver scores 146

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 22:36

        Fantastic Captain's score!…nice one Donk.

    SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 22:00

    Oliver take a bow son. I'll take 130+

Claire · 31/03/2018 at 19:26

Boys, I had Kelly VC = 110.
So who should I captain. Fyfe, Titch or Danger?
I suppose Titch is the safest bet?

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 19:46

    Go for gold Claire!…flip a coin or trust your gut, all 3 could do the job, I'm going Dangermouse.

    gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 19:47

    If you want to play it safe Claire yep Mitchell would be the way to go.. I hope Fyfe goes huge I have the VC on him

Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 19:26

Jeremy Howe you POD superstar! If I didn't have to field Langdon as cover for Green I would be having a huge round… that 70 points and English over Kreuzer is gonna cost me a real good score.

    Holty · 31/03/2018 at 19:34

    Yep great pod for me as well
    Howe Pendles Finlayson all good
    Murray was acceptable.
    Lobb……………disappointing

      gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 19:44

      Yeah have Howe and Finnlayson on field.. Muarray also on field a not a great score but will take it

        Derek · 31/03/2018 at 19:51

        Hate to admit this, but really liking have Shaw in my team

          Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 20:00

          Old heater's been pretty solid so far..good choice!

BlueBaggerJosh · 31/03/2018 at 19:26

Garlett instead of Giles Langdon, Murray instead of Murphy, cost me 50pts. Much better than last week lol

chris · 31/03/2018 at 19:43

Lobb to Curnow next week before the price changes?

    Derek · 31/03/2018 at 19:49

    Lobb not able to match it with the big boys.

    Does have Sinclair next week

    BlueBaggerJosh · 31/03/2018 at 19:50

    Yep, Curnow looking real good. Spewing I didn't start with him but will pick him up as an upgrade target.

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 19:53

    I am considering it

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 20:09

    Curnow or Taranto

      Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 20:11

      Yeah that is another one to consider. Tough choices

Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 20:42

Merret repaying the faith. Hope nobody traded him. Banfield is trying to tag him but it isn't working.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:19

    Yeah you'd be spewin if you'd traded him or Fyfe.

      Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 21:23

      Kept them both, happy times indeed. Ryan, Oliver, Gawn and Smith are also doing really well for my team

    TOPHAWK1 · 31/03/2018 at 21:27

    Kept them both DM. Why coaches would rage trade these 2 guys out is beyond me. I did chicken out on putting the C on Fyfe tonight.

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:36

      Your 'prediction' is looking very promising Hawk! 🙂

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 22:18

    Might have spoken a bit too soon haha

Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 20:53

I have to get Zorko out !

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 21:00

    Yeah looks like teams have taken hint on how to stop him

      Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 21:08

      Last year I wrote notes about that with a big Red Cross next to him saying 2018

      I didn’t listen when I saw some funky looking stats

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:19

    He's going better now, could still ton up.

      Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 21:23

      Yeah you never know with Zorko can get huge amounts of points in quick bursts.

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 21:43

    Lots of lessons on backing your premiums learnt today. Zorko the magnificent is going huge

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:53

      Good thing about Zorko is, he was a very late starter in AFL so he's a scrapper,because he appreciates what he's got, never gives up no matter how bad things are going.
      That's an admirable trait in a Footy player.

    Finnius · 31/03/2018 at 21:51

    I wouldn't be moving him on quite yet…

      Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 21:56

      I jinxed it. Now all my other ones are being spuds. Gawn. Hibberd. Fritsch

      But with Zorko, Jesus Christ (is our lord and savior who died for our sins and taught us the way of the lord on this great day amen)

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:57

        Hahah, nice praying mate.

Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 21:56

Bundy Christensen…you bloody beauty! 🙂

Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 22:01

If you are one of the huge amount of teams without Oliver in your team you need to find a way to get him in, because he isn't looking like dropping in price any time soon and has taken his game to another level.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 22:09

    Wish I'd had Hogan instead of Petracca today…Rayner's turned out to be the number one draft dud..luckily I didn't select him, I do have Oliver though, he's a stud.

      gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 22:50

      Looks like the young red nut is flying.. A nice pod we have here.. But shh don't tell anyone

        Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 22:54

        Howza goin Gator?…yeah never thought he'd be a pod though…go figure haha

          gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 22:59

          Not in your wildest dreams Russty.. Looks like the pre season injury has scared a lot off… At least I've got internet in tassie this week where we are staying now

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 31/03/2018 at 23:13

    Had him as capt 1 little positive.

BlueBaggerJosh · 31/03/2018 at 22:07

Hibberd with another awkward 70's score bit worrying.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 22:11

    Think you need to stick with him Josh, you know he's capable of much better.

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 22:12

    Derek might have been right about Lewis and Lever impacting his scores.

      Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 22:18

      Everyone's rusty at this time of year, takes longer for some to get into their groove than others, he'll be ok, he's already proved he's a premo defender.

    SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 22:17

    Really concern myself, Lever and Lewis are taking his points. Might have to drop him for Ryan is looking real good.

    Steeeve · 31/03/2018 at 22:48

    Had Shaw instead but wimped out. Dammit.

GloryDays90 · 31/03/2018 at 22:10

Hibberd is an over priced flop!

    Tibor · 31/03/2018 at 23:02

    Keep one eye on selection at the moment he is more responsible for an opponent than last year, T Mac a fair way off but they might bring in Frost especially playing Kangas with Ben Brown and Waite next week and that changes Hibberd role back to more like what he had last year

Grouta · 31/03/2018 at 22:20

And Petracca

    Tibor · 31/03/2018 at 23:04

    I wouldn't panic too early on him, it's not a huge spud score and he looked ok

      Grouta · 31/03/2018 at 23:08

      My bad. I thought he scored in the low 70’s.

        Tibor · 01/04/2018 at 10:11

        He does look ok, I thought he did the smart team thing quite a bit and took his opponent very wide when Garlett and Hogan were doing the damage. Hogan ended up on 145 points so it was his night but Petracca will be better than this score as opposition is forced to make Hogan and Garlett the centre of their defence plan. Both Hogan and Petracca spending a fair bit of time high fwd and midfield but not at the same time. Should average around 200 sc points together pretty regularly but split contributions. Having both is a reasonable option

Holty · 31/03/2018 at 22:24

Its great seeing 2 great big men go head to head and have a great battle. Just sux when you have both in SC and they nullify each others dominance.

chris · 31/03/2018 at 22:49

I think my trades for next week are Lobb and Merret to Cripps and Taranto/ Curnow. Lobb looks outclassed against better rucks and Merret has been exposed as a player susceptible to the tag. I expect more teams to follow suit now.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 22:53

Luv ya work purple pods.

    Defying_Madness · 31/03/2018 at 22:56

    Ryan is a bloody gun. Very happy with him

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/03/2018 at 23:01

      Yep a rippa.
      He is such a good contested mark and his d/e is superb.
      That tackle on big Joe was a pearler.
      Sir walter getting alot of midfield time who again is very clean by hand or foot.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 31/03/2018 at 23:03

      Yeah incredibly pleased with the selection as well, only in 2 percent of teams, big POD.

Tyruddanaut · 31/03/2018 at 23:12

1588/17. Hope I can bring it home strong with Titch, Dusty, Heeney, TK and Nic Nat to go

    David C · 01/04/2018 at 06:06

    Dusty has already played.

      Tyruddanaut · 01/04/2018 at 09:39

      Sorry I meant to say Danger

gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 23:15

Do we take Fyfes 120 as Vc or roll with Danger or Titch

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 23:17

    I already refused Laird's 120…but i am a fussy C*nt lol, banking on Danger.

      gator59 · 31/03/2018 at 23:36

      Yeah that's what i'm thinking too Russty

    SC_Sixty6 · 01/04/2018 at 16:40

    Too many jets to take a 120. I'm a 140 min for VC.

TheBenchmark25 · 31/03/2018 at 23:21

How's everyone travelling and with how many players left?

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 23:43

    Hi Benchmark, I'm currently on 1635 from 16 at the moment. Captain Danger still to play.
    Thought i'd answer cause nobody else bothered to.

      Derek · 01/04/2018 at 00:06

      It’s Rookie Roulette again this week. Making or breaking people’s scores.

      Annoyed at missing putting O’Conner on field instead of Murray so I could get Murphy’s 80. Was tossing up all week about Gawn or Oliver for C, went with Max.

      On 1759 with Parker, Mills, TMitch, TKelly, Lycett and Heeney to play.

      Might get around 2300

      Derek · 01/04/2018 at 00:08

      Whenever I post anything I get this:

      Your comment must be approved by the site admins before it will appear publicly.

      Anyone else?

        Russty_ · 01/04/2018 at 00:33

        Sounds like they have some kind of problem with you Derek, apart from this site.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 01/04/2018 at 00:05

    1736 off 15, projected 2350

    Defying_Madness · 01/04/2018 at 00:14

    1711 from 17 with Titch captain, Heeney, Kelly, Nic Nat and Sicily left to play. Murray, Fritsch and Lobb were the only really terrible scores so far. With some luck over the next 2 days and a big score from Titch I should post a decent score.
    Profected 2371 currently.

    JohnDJ59 · 01/04/2018 at 00:44

    Sitting on 1,464 with five still to play including Captain Titch.The only players to let me down so far this round were,Crouch,injury at HT,Billings not backing up from last week and Hibbo,being slow out of the blocks in his two games so far.Looking around the 2,150 mark for this week.Not great,but not a disaster.

    Ben · 01/04/2018 at 01:30

    1640 from 16 still got danger captain, heeney, McLean, Kelly, Sicily and Bonner projected is 2400 but all depends on danger

    Neverweaken · 01/04/2018 at 08:11

    1757 with Sicily, Bonner, OMeara Kelly and Franklin.
    Franklin as captain. Knocked back Cripps 115
    So who knows what I will end up with.

Chief · 31/03/2018 at 23:25

I’m going the following trades next week:

Out – Hibberd & Couch
In – Simpson & Oliver

Thoughts?

    JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 23:32

    I don't mind it Oliver and Crouch are the same type of scorers and Simo has come out firing while Hibbo has been a bit slow out of the blocks.

JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 23:27

Had six players score 100+ last week for a total score of 2,177,so far have seven with a 100+ score,with five to play tomorrow,but can't see my team doing any better.

    Russty_ · 31/03/2018 at 23:39

    Hey John, from memory of last year you need about 11 or 12 guys to ton up for you each week to kick arse in finals time, so maybe work up to building up towards that.

      JohnDJ59 · 31/03/2018 at 23:50

      About right Russty I had nine get 100+ in my grand finals last year,with four of them being huge,Buddy 183, Danger 163, Dusty&Crouch 146 each,for a total of 2,409.

        Russty_ · 01/04/2018 at 00:02

        Depends on who your last 5 players are though mate…could be huge.

          Ben · 01/04/2018 at 01:33

          I had 13 ton up last week and already had 10 this week and a couple of 90s and still have 6 to play

SCdonkey · 31/03/2018 at 23:40

Not too bad 1635/15 plus Holman 92, still have Heeney, McLean, Titch, English, TKelly and Rocky to play.

Should get around the same score as last week 2200-2300

    Ben · 01/04/2018 at 01:25

    Captain played

Big G · 31/03/2018 at 23:43

what a waste of space that cameron rayner is. Does anyone have alternatives?

    sc tragic · 01/04/2018 at 09:43

    Rookies are like a box of chocolates you never know what you are getting til you bite into the buggers!!

      Big G · 01/04/2018 at 16:48

      I am thinking of trading in Jim Stynes – he would probably be of more use, Things could be worse, I could have traded in Tim English.

Tibor · 01/04/2018 at 10:21

Alan Christensen score 101 points. Got more free kicks than anyone else on the ground and got them right in front of goal. Most would say each free was there and it probably was but wow did he play for them , milk em, and lay on the mayonnaise. Where do we think he learned to stage so effectively. When the ball comes in he just basically runs into a defender and falls down. The early points give him a price rise but he might be worth cashing in on early because he won't get away with that drama queening long term

LUKE · 01/04/2018 at 12:38

Thoughts on who I should field out of Jake Waterman or Daniel Venables? Toby Greene is out and I need to choose one for cover? I have it on Waterman but I have a feeling Venables might go OK this game. Both average similar around 50…

BlueBaggerJosh · 01/04/2018 at 16:37

Traded in Nic nat and fielded Garlett over Ryan look at me go lol 🙁

    Neverweaken · 01/04/2018 at 18:15

    Nic Nat will be great once they let him play a whole game. 90-100 from less than 60% game time. Hes gonna kill it in a few weeks. And his ground level skills were awesome. Least you didnt trade in English.
    Think we all have Ryan on the bench. Oh well, think of the money making.

    Russty_ · 01/04/2018 at 18:23

    Nicnat did ok, and will be ok Josh.

DavidSA · 01/04/2018 at 17:10

Man my article on Rockliff was correct
But I still said 97-107 range. This though after round 1 is not good at all

HankScorpio8 · 01/04/2018 at 23:53

Should I put the C on Danger or Titch?
