Well, well, well, look what the cat dragged in.

A half-dead, screaming and bleeding attempt at a game that has flashes of blue, white red and black. The North vs Saints game was supposed to be the highlight of a thoroughly uninspiring day – devoid of having anything open, not being allowed to eat meat… Good Friday had one thing going for it in a game of footy and it was pretty much ruined.

It was just the sort of thing a cat would drag in.

We had a few hiccups today with Matt Kreuzer and Toby Greene both late outs – how did you fare dodging those donuts?

(Shoutout to Lek for calling me while I was halfway up the Hume to get me to pull over and trade The Kreuz out – not all heroes wear capes.)

How are you tracking this round, community? Did you get the Dusty VC? What do you reckon Danger will score? Roll up, roll up, come one, come all and have a good old chinwag in The Standing Room.

Hey Patch, yeah tragedy for those two poor buggers, can be a hell of a cruel game, good to have friends like that who give you the heads up!.

redherringfc
Guest

I still think it’s a waste of a trade. He was picked as a premium.

Last year he was very inconsistent but averaged just under 100. I haven’t watched either of Melbourne games, but looking at last years numbers he’s due a big one.

If he pops out a few more 70’s then he’ll be one of the first players I bring in.

redherringfc
Guest

Hope he can pop a few more duds out and really drop in price. Last years numbers say he will be close to a must.

Petracca? An ordinary game.
It was thought that this was going to be his breakout year but although we are only two games in, that familar pattern of a good game, ordinary game, who knows game, in other words he is a frustrating yo-yo player with so much talent.

Tibor

I think there might be a bit of this from Petracca and Hogan , Smokin. Both moving into a high fwd midfield role but not at the same time as each other. Petracca was actually pretty good and his score was not that bad. Did the right thing taking his opponents well out of the way when Hogan and Garlett had things working well. There will be plenty of times for Petracca to be the main man. What he did do was pretty good score could have been better but a couple of howler free kicks against didn't help his… Read more »

85 ain't ordinary by any stretch Donga…next week could be 105, or 95 or 75, all of those aren't too bad over 3 weeks.

True, petracca should score fairly consistently, my hogan risk could be 50,70,130 type scoring patterns.

Donga

Sorry forum. I was premature re my criticism of Petracca. Someone told me he scored in the 70’s but he scored mid 80’s so an ok game.
Unfortunately I don’t have SC gold this year.

Patch
Guest
Patch

His role doesn't help with his scoring – I see him as a Boomer Harvey style player for now, not enough mid time to explode.

What to do with him now you've got him? Hate to trade him and see him rack up two 130s but if he was your biggest problem you're doing pretty well.

PuntRoadRoar

Petracca 4 FA didn't help. Wouldn't expect him to give away that many frees every week.

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

A couple of them were shocking howlers too. I get it that it is a tough game to umpire consistently but there is simply no consistency now. My new pet hate is where the controlling umpire makes the decision or non decision and the " look at me" style umpire runs in with the over rule from 50 metres away. Petracca copped the rough end of two of these on Saturday night.

After opening up with a great 2439, the shyt started to hit the fan, as I traded Billings in and the Sainter's forgot to play footy the hard way and played a soft brand including Billings 79 but I knew he would be a rollercoaster ride. Then today Greene's a late out covered by ZGL who put up a nice 65 but that hand scare before he had scored had some of that brown stainey stuff running down my leg, I could smell a bad round coming. But then the SuperCoach GODS started to smile at my team once more… Read more »

Is Cognilio a must have? Not sure, has only played one full season for 100+ avg. I would need to make a few sacrifices to get him into my team (Thouy -> Bonner today then get him in next week). I suppose you can't get em all!

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

He looks good. I was at Pies vs GWS yesterday and he’s so classy around the ground. I think he’s their 2nd best mid behind Kelly and could easily go 110+

Luke Ryan and Nank looking good this year. Wish I stuck to my gut instead of trading them out pre lockout.

1898/18 with Titch (c), Heeney, Sicily and Tim Kelly to play. Have the VC on Fyfe, I am tempted to take the 120 and be safe. Although Mitchell did go full beast mode last week. Can he back it up?

TRIGGA_HAPPY
Guest
TRIGGA_HAPPY

Going ok so far this year.
Only small problem i see is F6.
Rookies scoing about 60 (which is all i expect from a rook each week)
But could ramp that up as have the cash to go brayshaw up to tarranto or a rookie up to fisher.
Then plan is in about 6 weeks turn them into crouch in the mids once he drops down in price.

1600 so far with 6 to come capt still to play.

Once again loving the purple pods.

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

Please tell me, I made the right move. (Pls SCgods don't punish me)

Went early on bringing Danger in for Rocky, which i went against my plan. Just not confident on Rocky still being named at HF and that knee of his. Danger could go big, even if he doesn't he'll easily get a 100 minimum.

With Danger, Titch, Heeney, McLean, Kelly and English to play and score is sitting at 1727 hoping to get around the same score as last week 2200-2300

Tibor

That's the problem. A feeble acceptance of an honourable loss. No doubt his players like him, respect him and. Play for him but they just don't win enough and there has been no real turn around and improvement in years. No good blaming injuries all the time, every club has them. Jamie Elliott is pretty good but not great and what did they honestly expect fitness wise from Daniel Wells. Even in SuperCoach you wouldn't have Elliott because he's not that great and not even close friends and relatives pick Wells because they know he'll be out injured

Guest
Tibor

I haven't got him because it occurred to me that he might be a massive injury risk given he gets injured pretty much every year except last year and the chance of a continued injury free run seemed a bit of a long shot for a 600 k plus player.

Not really I only say that because I know how popular it is to be clever with the benefit of hindsight.

Hope he plays this week but only because I want to see Collingwood get pumped but that won't happen if they can't compete with Grundy

I have a spare 115k after upgrading coffield to bonner, next week. Downgraded kreuzer to nic nat this week… only player i am unsure about is taberner, he has scored well and shown potential in games to avg 90, good for a forward. Do i keep him or downgrade to a Christensen and pocket more cash? All rookies are playing and "premos"perfroming otherwise.

Johnno

Keep him, save the trade, you got taberner in to make you cash and average 90, trading him to Christensen is essentially burning 2 trades because you’ll have to trade Christensen at some point.

Zach Thouy from Geel .. the irish man. I picked him as a hopeful keeper but think Bonner can go close to his output. Will redeploy cash to FWD line to keep my overall structure

Finnius

ohhhh touhy ahahahaha

I would be holding him as I think he can average 95 this year. Trades are valuable when we see how many premo injuries there are. Although scrapping Rayner isn't the worst option. I would wait till next week to do this if you are going to go through though – one more game sample size will be very important.

I know many have similar stories, but I reckon I’ve cost myself some 130 pounts this week by having the wring rookies on field ( Murray instead of Finlayson, Giles Landon instead of Ryan(73 at half time), Fritsch instead of waterman (55 at galf time)).
The bright side is they are all making money.

BVB21

Giving him one more week

Then it will be too hard to move him on due to other players price changes. Trading him to Curnow is also something I have considered.

Bear in mind that Ryan scored 38 in round 1.

Defying_Madness

Yeah good point. The week the 38 rolls out should leave him making huge amounts of cash, however the possibility of him putting out another stinker is still there.

Mills again will be my first trade out. Dissapointig effort, zero midfield. Gotta go. Not sure if I go up to Simpson or down to Bonnar

Defying_Madness

Defying_Madness

I think I would prefer up to Simpson. Maybe even have a look at Ryan for a player at a similar price.

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

Ryan was the player if I decided to upgrade instead of downgrading,I might not even be able to do that trade since I have Crouch and Naughton to deal with.

BlueBaggerJosh

BlueBaggerJosh

Both with very good scores considering their respective price tags, I have Heeney like most. really thinking of going Naughton to Bonner but would have to trade a hibberd down to someone like Shaw, considering I have 28 trades I don't think it's worth it. What do you think?

BVB21
Guest
BVB21

Good scores boys.

Would not trade hibberd if I was you especially to Shaw.

Also don’t think Bonner is as good a trade as everyone thinks.

Might be proved wrong

Russty_

You could be right about Bonner BV, could be a 76 every week…just have to wait and see as he's my D3

Russty_

Nicnat did ok today for you Josh, I think it's a good trade, will get better over the coming weeks if he stays healthy.

BlueBaggerJosh
Guest
BlueBaggerJosh

Definitely, scores around the 110 and 90 mark are brilliant considering his TOG, can only get better. Hoping Kreuzer can go well for my Blues, will need him up against Grundy but groins are tricky business

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

I'm now confident to do these following trades this week,

Naughton to Bonner
Cox to NicNat

Liking how my team is travelling, first time in 7 years to have two decent score in the 1st two rounds.

FearTheBeard
Guest
FearTheBeard

Confident on Nic Nat? Didn't he get like 80?

Josh

Off less than 70 minutes game time, his scores will increase as his TOG goes up

FearTheBeard

FearTheBeard

Did his minutes increase this week?

SCdonkey

At less than 60% TOG, and a decent 80 points. He's moving well, with TOG is surely gonna increase and so does the points.

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Hi Doncs.

I dont mind those trade options. As long as you have Finlayson, Doedee, and Holman as your cash generation engine.

Lycett is playing the dual ruck role with Nic Nat at the moment. Lycett had a good game today, and Nic Nat started very slowly but came home hard with his 85 SC. I doubt Lycett will be dropped and will ruck alongside Nic Nat unless either one gets injured. Keep that in mind.

Cheers mate.

Derek
Guest
Derek

Not hearing too many people talking about how crap Lycett was today.

Russty_

87 is very serviceable Derek. Lots of knee jerk reactions on here week to week.

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Agreed. He played very well. I remember you also looking to start with Lycett. Did you start with him?

I seriously entertained starting Lycett, but ended up going Nankervis and cough up the extra 200K cash.

At 277K, I reckon he is a bargain for any coach who needs to corrective trade this week.

Cheers Derek

Derek

Always happen mate when someone has a left field pick and has bad score. People will jump on your throat and give you crap.

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

I'm not concern with Lycett and NicNat playing together. NicNat was not affected when Dean Cox was still around, Nat will score points at other areas, his marking, tackling, goals and hitouts the man is a beast.

Derek
Guest
Derek

Can you go Cox to Bonnar

Do you have Garlett in Midfield? Swing Garlett to forwards and finlsyson to mids

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

I have all Rookies that's a must,

Doedee, Murphy, Finlayson, Holman, Kelly

Other Rooks are
Garlett, English, Langdon and Naugton who i was to trade for Bonner for quick cash and stepping stone to either Simmo or Hurley.

I wanna keep O'Connor and Mihocek as my loophole and swing between back and mid.

BVB21
Guest
BVB21

Bonner is good trade.

I don’t think it’s a must trade as people seem to think.

Nic Nat is a risk obviously.

Has a lot of potential but can’t really see him being top 3 rucks this season

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

Not a must trade agree, atm I'm running 4 rooks on field down back. Bonner seems to me a perfect player that has JS and will score 60+ each week until i have enough cash to turn him into a premo.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

No offence donk but you were defending the Cox choice quite vehemently last week, he's coming back in next week, don't you think he's a good pick anymore?

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

I have no use for him anymore, as I have traded out Ryder and English became my cover this week.

I wasn't defending him, i was explaining of why i picked him.

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

Oh forgot to put in Ryan(WCE) and Bandfield(Freo)

SCdonkey
Guest

This is what my team will look like after the trades and will set back for a while, watch my rookies fatten up.

Back
Laird, Hibbo, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray
Mihocek, Murphy

Mids
Danger, Titch, Oliver, Kelly,
Fyfe, Cripps, Kelly, Holman
O'Connor, Banfield, Garlett

Ruck
Gawn, NicNat
English

Heeney, McLean, Smith, Taylor, Curnow, Fristch
Langdon, Ryan

BVB21

Consider Lachlan Fogarty if he plays well today.

Guy is a ball magnet. JS only concern

Jay

Jay

What's with all the fuss surrounding Bonner?
$257,300 & only scored 76. Not much cash generation & certainly no keeper. Gotta admit, I didn't watch the game though.

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

Not sure about the other people of why and the reason they want to bring Bonner in. But he fits right in my structure, Naughton is gonna be making slow cash and JS is getting slim. Bonner has a better JS, i think he'll give you 60+ points each week and is likely to make more cash than Naughton. While other rookies generating cash and Bonner getting points and making cash at the same time. By Round 5 or 6 he's ready to be move on to a premo. No fuss from me, just a strategy for my team.

Dean

Corrective trades next week for mine are – Hibberd OUT – Shaw IN

Holty
Guest
Holty

U have both i guess? If so look at it as a glass half full instead of a glass half empty. Instead of looking at Parker being ripped off, maybe you should look at Heeney being lucky to have scored what he did. I know thats how im looking at it.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Yeah it's hard to explain, Parker seems to have better stats than Heeney in most departments, maybe it's got something to do with that mythical..'Important time in the game' thing that Champion Data do, that none of us now what it really means.

Danger or Titch for cap???

Dean
Guest
Dean

Because we haven't seen Danger play this season and with Gazza back in the side I would choose Titch mate only because there is a decent chance Danger & Gazza will spend time in the forward line. Its a tough call and I dont want to miss lead you just in case Danger ends up scoring a 150+ because if Danger doesn't play in the forward line at all then he should score you 130+ with ease. My only reason for recomending Titch is because you know he will be playing right in the guts which generally is where a… Read more »

Depends on if you lean towards safety, or you're a gambler, either way, make the call yourself, it's your team, trust your own decisions, and not other people's.

AuroraBorealis?!

AuroraBorealis?!

Ok community, who wins from here?
Team 1:

or
Team 2:
1838 with Duncan, Sicily, Dangerfield, Kelly still to play.

Finnius
Guest
Finnius

Its gonna be tight but team 2 I think

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

Yeah i think it'll be team 2 too. I'm hoping titch goes huge, its pretty much my only option.

Jack
Guest
Jack

Basically Titch has to out score Duncan by 84 points, right? Titch might have to break his own record to win that one

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

Unless i've screwed up the math, if duncan scores 95 and titch scores 131 we tie. So Titch has to outscore Duncan by 37 points or more in order for me to win. It'll be a tight one, just have to hope duncan gets pushed out of the midfield with the inclusion of Danger, Ablett and Selwood and that Titch goes big.

Noirlust
Guest
Noirlust

Duncan out

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

Wow, that is incredibly unlucky for him. I almost feel bad but it is a cash league so i've gotta take wins where i can get them. His emergency is LDU who scored 77. So if titch scores 114 or more i win, im sure he can do that.

dontblushbaby

Tyruddanaut

Tyruddanaut

Hurn is a fabulous cheeky pick and I would get him in if I got a chance

Only do one luxury trade. Lambert or Crouch?
Lambert might get midfield time, has forward eligibility and costs 470k
Crouch is a pure midfielder, Gibbs taking the ball away, costs 600k

He is only 30 years old.

Missed one game in last three years

Averaged 107 in last 9 games of last year.

Improved scoring by at least 10% last two years.

Ball will be in west coast backline a lot

Thanks for the feedback though guys.

Won’t go Taranto. Too risky.

Curnow is an interesting choice.

Finished last year off very strong

Wonder how soon Cricket Australia will be rushing back the disgraced Steve Smith and Warner, Bancroft after the way this Test match is going.?..The replacements didn't exactly deliver…will they stick to their guns or get sick of losing badly pretty soon?…I know this isn't Footy but don't bag me for it, we're all Sports minded people.

Well said Russty..Not sure about Warner and Bancroft but I can see them getting back Smith

The door is now ajar for Darcy Short and Matt Renshaw……..Short can be another Warner for sure

We have Travis Head and Alex Carey there also and I think they will be good combatants for us

Renshaw didn't exactly succeed, they need someone in there who can score some runs.

One innings is a bit rough to judge off – I actually think that he fought pretty hard. Has been pretty good in the shield this year as well. Give him a few matches to get settled and I think he is a good pick.

You're probably right Finn, sorry about my comments last night by the way, I apologised to you earlier in your English quarter time report but maybe you didn't see it, I was out of line and am sorry about that.
Renshaw is a good player and was probably jetlagged and in shock.

Its pretty simple. Cricket Australia stuffed up. I would not be at all surprised if the players sue Cricket Australia and would probably win based on the penalty they gave as they simply made it up. They were so worried about what the world thought they felt they needed to give the penalties. I understand the ICC stepping in and giving a penalty if they were not happy with what Cricket Australia gave. But to come in over the top of what penalty the ICC give astounds me.

Russty_
Guest

Yeah tend to agree Holty, penalty was way higher than what most other players had received in the past for the same kind of Ball Tampering.

Both openers were jetlagged, then had to spend 130+ overs in the field before batting. The rest of the team have just endured one of the most emotionally draining weeks of their lives. I'm actually amazed they're performing as well as they are.

I have a few issues with my team. 1. Matt Crouch – I think he has to be traded. I’ve got cash so could put him rob Danger pending his performance. 2. Kane Lambert – spudding it up. I’m worried about him, he’s not really a premo. Trade him? 3. Matty Kreuzer – I want to hold. Have English on the bench. Hopefully Kreuz comes back ASAP. 4. Michael Hibberd – spudding it up. Willing to hold as he’s a premo. Wouldn’t mind getting in Laird though. 5. Andrew Brayshaw – willing to hold. Shouldn’t have started him. 6. Aaron… Read more »

I'd go Crouch to Danger and Lambert to Taranto or Curnow, and hope Kreuz plays next week, the others can stay as they are, many guys have em…just let em fester on the bench for awhile. They could start scoring points and making money.
Hibberd will be ok, he's a premium, will bounce back,

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

I would have first priority as 6 & 1

Dangerfield is a must have and a POD at that! He will score a bare minimum average of 120 and is likely to be the top scoring premium

Naughton is projected to rise in price 8k. Fantastic 5% ROI!! But actually make sure you have as many of you can of:
Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Murphy
TK, Holman
English (Your choice of him or Olango)
Fritsch, Ryan

CrippBoy
Guest
CrippBoy

Thanks fellas.

What I could do is trade Naughton to Bonner and Lambert to Curnow or Taranto this week. Bonners the only rookie I don’t have.

Then trade Crouch to Danger next week. Added benefit of seeing how Danger goes for the two weeks. Any potisitional changes/how his body holds up.

Jack
Guest
Jack

I'd trade out Crouch before I traded out Naughton even if it means getting creative and putting a D/M into the midfield until you get Danger (Finlayson maybe)
Naughton might be projected to only rise 8k, but that 30 will only last 1 price hike. He will still make 100k, all it takes is 1-2 good weeks which he will have at some stage.

Brayshaw is not a big problem. If he was priced 123k you would be happy, and you wouldn't be trading him out for 200k like he is now. He will get to 350k

Derek
Guest
Derek

Wait on Crouch. He didn’t look in too much pain. He is a gun and you would hate to trade him out. Lambert is going ok. Just not getting the scores. He is running hard and doing a lot of work. It will come. Be patient. Kruzer must have been close to playing this week. Hold and wait for news. Hold Hibbo. Should be a top 8 defender. Don’t chace points. Brayshae looks a good player. You have him now, keep him for some cash gain. You just need one big game out of him in the next few weeks.… Read more »

Dean

Hibberd isn't a top 10 defender if he continues to keep this up. I have Laird but I'm getting rid of Hibberd and bringing in Shaw. I really think you should Pi$$ Hibberd off ASAP and bring in Laird or at least Shaw as you will end up 30 points better from this and if you choose Shaw the cash generation can then go Crouch to Danger should you wish to do that, I wouldn't be rushing on Danger because I can see both Gazza & Danger roatating into the forward line and if he does his price will drop… Read more »

Looking at 2,500 this week but have Lambert too .I really like Zac Fisher at 263 this will give me 658 cash left to bring in Danger when he drops after round four. What i need to look at tho is would i be better off bringing in two premo"s and wait on danger mmmmm .Lambert is the only one who will drop in price tho.

Derek
Guest

paul
Guest

Yes Lambert break even is 116 not impossible would be happy with 100.I said too myself at the start not to trade out good players too early as it always happens to me they come good after a few games.Lambert is one that may just do that.but to get rid of him pocket the cash and bring in a kid who may average 90 is a better key strategy i feel.

Pretty happy with rookies this year. ( bench scores better than on field guns)….picked most of them but missed bonner. Thank christ i have laird..cos hibberd and my pod Rampe ( 160 odd in a jlt game) are really stinking up my back line. Anyone else have Rampe??

Russty_
Guest

Doubt it Jockwin, JLT should be ignored when it comes to picking your starting team, maybe go Rampe straight to Ryan from Fremantle? Could be a good keeper this year.

Jockwin Phoenix
Guest
Jockwin Phoenix

Yeah..cheers rusty..ryan looks the goods, and a better bloke than sicily..currently have laird, hibbo, rampe, seedsman ( doing okay) and 4 rookies. Should have stuck with 3 guns/ bonner/ 4 rooks rather than mid price madness. Oh well..have dodged injury thus far. Gonna be a tough season. Danger missing that first game mixed it up.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

I was contemplating Seedsman seriously preseason, even wrote an article on him on a different website, now folded unfortunately, he's done pretty well so far, hope he can keep up the good scores for you !
Consider Rampe to Bonner also…could be a good one this year.

Jockwin Phoenix
Guest
Jockwin Phoenix

Yeah..good advice…rampe to bonner..pocket the cash and upgrade a mid ( bound to get an injury soon) to danger if he starts smashing it..Everone has the juicy cash cows this year, the winner this year will upgrade them correctly. Gonna be interesting in 6 weeks..

allen

with the late news of Kreuzer not playing, I traded Darcy Cameron to Timmy English for cover, wish I had not have wasted that trade, watched him play, looked ordinary.. wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play another game this year with Boyd and redpath off the top of my head 2 talls that will slot in..
dogs looked ordinary today which makes me sceptical with the Bont, but I think the dogs will find a gear :/

Daniel

I was in a similar position but decided not to trade him out after someone mentioned all the Dogs' talls still to come back. Plus they looked laconic in round 1 and didn't seem to have realized the season started this week either…

So rookie week this week b4 price rise.

Potential ones i dont have:

Barry, ryan and potentially fogarty if goes ok 2mrw.

Any of those 3 worth bringing in?
Ryan tonned up this week and looked quite good but no real pressure coming from upstream.

Think im just gonna sit naughton on the bench in def as no one else screaming pick me. Have bonner, doodee, finlaysen, murray and murphy.

Dean
Guest

Good idea u have defence covered regarding rookies. Here's a tip stay well away from high priced rookies. My only high priced rookie is Naughton. Depending what rookies you have in your forward line but I think you should get Ryan in your FWD because his average is 76.5 after todays 115 that score is going to see him increase quite a lot for a cheap rookie. I would also consider Barry if you have a high priced rookie that is underperforming as his average is above the 50 – currently at 53 after two (2) games. It all comes… Read more »

Does anyone know the Supercoach price change determinants?
Atm I’m just using:

(0.75*a)+(0.25*b*c)

Where ‘a’ is the original price of the player
‘B’ is the average of the past three games
‘C’ is the “magic number”, which I’m using 5500

If you have SC gold you can see projected price changes – I have no idea about an algorithm though.

I go with ((3 week average x 5) – current price))÷4.
Gives a close enough approx price rise/drop and you can work it quickly in your head.
Eg merrett scores 120 round 3 for 3 wk ave @77
×5 =385
-600 = -215
÷4
He'll drop about 54k
Scores 120 week 4.
3wk ave 112
x 5 = 560
– 546 = 14
÷4
He'll rise again about 3-4 k

That works, except I think it’s /5 instead of /4. Makes it easier to calculate too

Done nothing? He averaged 95~ a couple of times, no? Can't really count his last year before suspension as a guide as most Essendon players had terrible years then, so basically he had 2 write off years during his peak age and then backed it up with last year. He CAN play

HOLD HIBBERD – Cant be too long before J.Lewis is dropped – an absolute coaching failure having him in defense. Undisciplined giving away free kicks for goals and the complete opposite of what you want from a loose man in defense. Is he quick – NO Is he disciplined – NO Penetrating kick out of defense – NO Calm under pressure – NO Spoiling every contest that is nearby – NO A team needs a classy sweeper or a spoiling machine not a slow past his prime midfielder down there.

Good call Demons. How about bringing in a key position player (for.Lewis) to play on the 2nd tall, that way you could play Lever in that loose man role and he will look like a 1mill player again.

He is averaging 90. That’s pretty good for him.

Daniel

It's also pretty much in line with what I was expecting from him. For what it's worth, an average of 90 would have been the 15th ranked forward last year (including a few guys that only played 16-18 games for the year).

Because L Murphy is 102k he should generate more assuming he holds his spot. An 80 for a 102 player means a big spike

In 4 weeks? My first thought is it would be Murphy but after running the numbers, maybe not. Bonner (at current average of 97) – would be around $390k after round 6 (nets you around $130k). Murphy (at current average of 56) – would be around $212k after round 6 (nets you around $110k). I think Bonner will be hard-pressed to maintain a 97 average, more realistic would be in the 85 range (which is still great value and good to have those points on the board but will only net you $100k at the end of round 6).

Heeney started fwd yesterday and hardly touched the pill in the first qtr.

Heeny is the genuine premo currently and that is reflected in his price. I thought Petracca was good against Brisbane Neil. He did the right thing and took his opponent out of the way when Garlett and Hogan had a good thing going. He had four free kicks against which is unusual two of which were very unlucky. Didn't hit the scoreboard which is also unusual for him and score was still ok without being great. His opportunities will come. Hogan is the really interesting one, so cheap in sc. 145 for a 5 goal 1 behind 1 out of… Read more »
