Now is the time to go wild on your Supercoach side. Round three is upon us, a round with price changes, where you can have your wanton way with your underperforming premiums and failed midpricers.

It is The Purge, where all rules are off and all trades are on the table.

Lekdog and Patch, despite a noticable inability to do “quick maffs” on the fly, run through what you need to do this week to ensure your side doesn’t absolutely fall apart.

We spend a lot of time on the rookies you need to nail, as well as discuss players like Hibberd, Rockliff and Dahlhaus you need to flick and the players you need to bring in – if you can.

Strap yourself in and keep your hands and feed inside the cart of all time as we take you on a whirlwind tour of your Supercoach side.

What are your trades this week, community? Who’s facing the wrath of your trigger finger?

Stef martin do i trade to grundy

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 00:35

    Hold Stef he's a mountain will come good

    liamphillips35 · 03/04/2018 at 00:41

    He's not going to be the last ruckman to struggle against Gawn

    r_calve · 03/04/2018 at 09:29

    nah stef is a tad inconsestent but isnt playing on gawn every week

    Carleton · 04/04/2018 at 03:47

    Do not trade to Grundy. Yes, Grundy had a great game, but that was because Mason Cox was suspended. Cox will be back next game and will halt Brodie's scoring.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 01:12

      Maybe not..lol

      Rabbits16 · 07/04/2018 at 09:07

      11hrs too late to say yes trade grundy in?

nickgonzalez771 · 02/04/2018 at 23:15

I went in with the mindset of being ultra-conservative with trades this season but now I find myself with a very juicy trade possibility which will see Lambert and Naughton shown the door for a more promising rookie in Murphy and getting in Dusty before his price goes north. These are top priorities and I'm still left with 30K so I'm not too doubtful about them but what are your thoughts?

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 00:36

    If you can get Dusty for Lambert do it. I'm pondering the other trade myself, may be a waste of a trade depending on how long you think Murphy will stay in the side

    neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 12:54

    doing the same go for it

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 17:56

    I am keeping Lambert, I have faith he'll be a keeper long term but can see the temptation.

      nickgonzalez771 · 03/04/2018 at 17:59

      Definitely, there's no harm in it. I wanted to stick, but the offer was too much to not take in my own opinion. I sincerely hope he turns that workrate into a better SC output.

    THE SALTSHAKER · 04/04/2018 at 06:01

    murphy had 6d (32sc) and 10d (80sc) that looks like a bit of plump in that score. He is cheap but a slow burn. Naughton should hold his spot, has played WAFL seniors will adjust. Jong and a few others be under more pressure with Wallis returning.

    Get Dusty over Lambert though

Ameoba · 02/04/2018 at 23:30

Hi there.
What is best please.
Sicily to Gray or Sicily to Taranto
The former is to a definite premium but is the later a sideways trade?

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 00:23

    Why would you trade Sicily after two weeks and a 93 ave? You got him for a reason.

      Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:42

      He’s having a week off

        Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 18:51

        Still have to hold him I think

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:43

    Hold. It’s only a week

    THE SALTSHAKER · 04/04/2018 at 06:05

    Sicily will beat up on teams keep him, avg 93 anything over a 90 is a pass for a fwd

      Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:27

      Haha yep he will beat up on them thats why hes having a week off. I trusted my flogometer and look round frickin 2 hes already doing stupid crap…….

Gibbs · 02/04/2018 at 23:35

Looking to make some rookie corrective trades. Do I trade Naughton/ H. Clark via dpp to Murphy? Is it worth it and which of the 2 should I trade Is Fogarty worth getting as well?

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:45

    I’d be happy to trade both out if you’ve missed one cows or can upgrade

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:32

    Get rid of clarke. Neither Fogarty is a must have.

VFL · 02/04/2018 at 23:41

71k salary cap.
C.Rayner (202k) out

Z.Fisher (263k) in.
OR Waterman (123k), Langdon (117k), Gowers (117k) Fogarty (117k), Barry (117k).
And Pocket the cash.
(I have all the other decent rookies FWD and MID)

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:29

    Only two types of players, keepers and cash cows. Which one is Fisher?

      Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 09:37

      Watch everyone try get fisher in after this podcast

        Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 10:14

        I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but I feel like a lot of people are jumping on him and Bonner. While they might keep up their scoring and make the required cash generation, I think there is too big a risk they have a bad game or two and they (a) get dropped; and / or (b) stop making money.

        I think in the early rounds everyone has this fear of missing out on this year's big players / rookies; combined with not having hit the trade button in months, it can lead to snap decisions that end up hurting long-term.

          Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:44

          Fisher has a great spot in our best 22

      Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:43

      A combination

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:46

    Like fisher

    Luke · 03/04/2018 at 15:06

    Zac Fisher lol

    Fabian · 03/04/2018 at 21:10

    I'd go with christensen (267k). He's got a breakeven of -10

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:10

    Prefer a rookie over Fisher when push comes to shove. Geelong's Fogerty for mine

BrownlowBoy · 03/04/2018 at 00:18

Suggestions for trades this week?

Sitting on 30 trades with 107k in the bank.

Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson, Naughton, Murphy
Dangerfield, Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman, Banfield, Barry, Garlett
Gawn, Nank, Olango
Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Taberner, Fritisch, Langdon, Ryan

Suggested trades or any feedback is much appreciated.

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 00:38

    Good side. I'd be inclined to leave it alone and save trades unless you go Naughton to Bonner but I think he's overhyped.

      b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 17:58

      With Bonner, pittard has to come back in soon which may affect his scoring so I agree.

        Sam_01 · 03/04/2018 at 18:25

        Naughton is also garbage and has to be flicked

          BrownlowBoy · 03/04/2018 at 23:22

          Naughton will earn cash. Just slowly.

            Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 07:21

            Too slowly and will only earn around 50k in total

      joe444 · 03/04/2018 at 22:23

      Bonner has a breakeven of -41 and is expected to go up in value by over $50k next week.

      He may not be in their long-term best 22 post-bye, but I wouldn't call that overrated from a Supercoach perspective.

        Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:05

        Personallt will send him packing by his bye. Elevated cash cow for mine.

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:06

    What are your thoughts on Hibberd, BB? Personally would turn him into Heath Shaw or Kade 'The Sleeves' Simpson with that side (which is excellent btw)

      BrownlowBoy · 03/04/2018 at 23:21

      Thanks Patch, yes Hibberd is a concern. I did ask about him below on the second page I think. He isn't scoring as well as I would have liked. Could turn him into Simmo.

      I also heard that Devon Smith had scans this week? Not sure what for.

NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 00:35

Would love to hear your thoughts on trades or no trades this week guys!

B – Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (Naughton, O'Connor)
M – Dusty, Mitchell, Fyfe, Parker, Cripps, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (LDU, Banfield, Barry)
R – Martin, Gawn (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Walters, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Venables, Langdon)

Scored 2359 – 30 trades with $20k in the bank. Questions I'm pondering are:

1) Naughton to Murphy and bank $60k?
2) Venables to Ryan?
3) Back in who I've got and save trades?

Any feedback or suggestions hugely appreciated.

    Davo · 03/04/2018 at 07:41

    I would leave your side as it is. Back it in and save trades.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:14

    you are looking good

    very bold to start Parker, Cripps and Coniglio

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 18:01

    Agree with others to hold you've got a great side. Many trading Hibberd for Simpson but I'm keeping him and unlike last year where I wanted to make 10 trades I'm keeping the faith and doing none this week…. For now! LOL. Venables to Ryan seems too sideways for me but can see the temptation

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 23:21

    Thanks guys. Gut feel was to hold, trades are gonna come in very handy when the inevitable carnage hits.

      Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 23:25

      I heard Langdon out for a month, so maybe go him to Ryan instead.

        NoLanguage · 05/04/2018 at 01:00

        Yep. No brainer

Josh · 03/04/2018 at 02:09

Got a few issues so not too sure what to prioritise:

Laird, hibberd, savage, doedee, murray, finlayson (naughton, keefe)
Mitchell, crouch, Merrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Parker, kelly, Holman (brayshaw, Barry, banfield)
Kreuzer, Gawn (olango)
Heeney, billings, Maclean, Bell, fritsch, Giles-langdon (Garlett, ryan)

Hibberd, naughton, crouch, Kreuzer and bell are probably the main ones I’m looking to move on, but not too sure what to do

    Daniel · 03/04/2018 at 05:30

    Do you have any cash in the bank? If not, dump Bell (you have the forward rookies, so you'll have to sideways (Christensen or Fisher) or upgrade). If you want to upgrade, go Crouch-Coniglio or Kreuzer-Nank (or something similar) and then bring in one of DSmith, Petracca, or CCurnow for F4. Definitely wait to see if Crouch or Kreuzer get up for this week though.

    I wouldn't worry about Hibberd (yet) as 2 90's-100's will end his slide.
    Naughton can wait – he's not that far off, as long as he keeps getting games (he'll just be a slower burner on your bench).

      Josh · 03/04/2018 at 11:32

      78 k in the bank
      If crouch and/or Kreuzer are out injured, would it be worth holding either if it will only be a few weeks?

        Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 11:45

        Crouch said to be 4 weeks Kruz might be another 1 or 2

          Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 13:28

          That is not good news… is that from the clubs' websites?

          At 4 weeks, Crouch should go, Oliver would be almost straight-swap, or could upgrade to Dusty (or d/g to Coniglio if you don't have him).

          Kreuz is a tighter call but a groin injury with a big man is troubling as it could hamper him once he is back. What are people's thoughts on replacements? Nank?

        NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 23:24

        Not Crouch, too much cash sitting on the pine for a month. Maybe a straight swap to Sloane or downgrade him to Coniglio

        Paul · 04/04/2018 at 21:13

        Kreuzer will play this week. Will smash Grundy too.

      b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 18:02

      Agree that Hibberd is too sideways, I have him and he's sure to come good

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:50

    Kreuz, Crouch & Bell. I’d be looking at downgrading Kreuz and upgrading Crouch to Dusty or Danger. Look at Bell next week

Freddie · 03/04/2018 at 02:13

Does anyone know what Murphy’s JS is at Adelaide. Who do Adelaide have to come in to take his place over the next few weeks?

    CalebCripps922 · 03/04/2018 at 08:04

    I'm Thinking his JS is pretty decent now with Mckay and Crouch going down.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:21

    he is playing for his AFL life. only 10 touches on the weekend probably not good enough, but did score a couple of goals at a crucial time.

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 13:36

    Job security in the short term looks okay, with a couple of injuries at Crows on the weekend on top of Murphy making a reasonable contribution.
    Murphy is far from a "must have rook' though….. Would have thought his ceiling is 80 and most scores likely to be in the 40 to 60 range….. He will make some $$ but not at a rapid rate I wouldn't have thought……

    Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 14:13

    Good JS. Has played his role well, don't see anyone kicking him out of the team atm

      Cam_H · 03/04/2018 at 14:48

      Difficult to tell, especially if they're happy to replace a small with a tall (e.g. Tom Lynch, Andy Otten).

      Smaller players on the immediate horizon include; Richard Douglas (back from suspension), Jordan Gallucci's been pressing for selection, Reilly Knight's injury seems to be now fixed but they'll play him through the SANFL. Matthew Signorello may be another rookie who may move into consideration at some point. In a few weeks there will be a few other guys like Sam Gibson too.

      I'm hoping he can keep up good form, as it seems he's very determined to stay in the team if 'reports' are to be believed.

SCDemon · 03/04/2018 at 03:24

Gday Community,

Need some advice

Laird, Hibberd, Bonner, Finlayson, Murray, Doedee (Naughton, Keeffe)
Martin, Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, Fyfe, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Barry Garlett)
Gawn, Naitanui (English)
Heeney, Walters, Petracca, Sicily, Cox, Ryan (Giles-Langdon, Fritsch)

I have seemingly nailed all the 'must-have' rooks', and I am left with a whopping $447k ion the Warchest.
Only made the 1 trade (Ryder to Nic Nat).
My question is how do I best use my bankroll.
Assuming English will suffice as Ruck Cover (is JS ok???), I am weighing up 2 options.

1) downgrade Cox to non playing RUC / FWD to swing with English & upgrade any mid rookie to Dangerfield.

2) downgrade Cox to non playing RUC / FWD & use the $650k ish to pick off 2 cheaper options (Zerrett / Parker types in coming weeks)

I feel the points yield will be greater with option 2, however I want Danger in my side come seasons end. Option 2 needless to say prevents this from happening anytime in the foreseeable future.
Alternatively, open to other suggestions.
(Not sideways trading including Hibberd!)

Thoughts, PLEASE Community?


    TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:21

    Hard not to see danger in the top 3 players across Supercoach come seasons end, scored a 130 on one leg while playing a fair bit in the forward line. Bring the man in

      Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:23

      if he has the same umpires every week, he will score 130's without any legs.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:51

    First option. Lock it

    TIGESB2B · 03/04/2018 at 15:10

    Dangers BE is 181 this week.

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 22:40

    Demon, I reckon Danger will be cheap enough in four weeks to pick off at 650k if you've got some bank. I'm pro-option two with a cheap Zerrett and then Danger a few extra weeks down the track myself.

      Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 23:34

      Doubtful you'll see Danger at 650k in four weeks. To drop that much, he'd have to average around 105 for four weeks. Can't see that happening unless he gets injured. More likely you'll be looking at him around 700k.

Jim · 03/04/2018 at 04:58

O’Mera for Coniglio?

    Corey · 03/04/2018 at 08:27


    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:51


      Jim · 03/04/2018 at 20:43


    Fabian · 03/04/2018 at 21:31

    I just made the exact same trade

Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 05:16

Last year if you had projections on, it would show expected price changes on your players instead of their current price. Anyone know why they've changed it or is there somewhere else it shows up? Thanks

Looking to hold trades as have all the rookies, but one will gnaw at me at week: Lobb to Christensen. Leaning toward getting one more sample size as Lobb's BE is not high and Christensen' price will be held down a little by his first round 60odd. The extra $130k is looking attractive to assist in getting Danger. Thoughts welcome.

    Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 05:38

    If Lobb and Christensen score at their current averages (78 and 84, respectively), Lobb's price will not change but Christensen goes up around 30k (it jumps by the same amount the week after as well). So if you wait a week, that 130k becomes (probably) 100k.

      Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 06:08

      Cheers. That was what I was thinking. And I don't need the cash for a few rounds yet. I think the $30k extra is worth the additional info on both and an extra week of knowing whether you need to cover for injuries or not.

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 06:15

    BTW. I found the cash detail. It's on the analyser tab under cash cows. Gives you BE and projected price change. I have a projected $975k increase. Only Lobb and Fyfe to drop and both have achievable BEs. Hypothetically, if I traded Lobb for Christensen it'd be over a million!

    Plenty of cash around. Let's hope that

      Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 06:17

      ….rookies emerge for downgrades and we haven't used them all up early.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:52


Rick Grimes · 03/04/2018 at 06:32

Is Coniglio essential? Gonna make a sweet load of cash and scoring like a premo.

    gator59 · 03/04/2018 at 07:54

    He's not essential Rick, But if it's cash your after then it could be a good option
    Not knowing your structure who are you trading to make this work for you

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 08:34

    Not essential Rick. Your not picking him as a cash cow at 450. Only if you think he's a top 10 mid. Which he might be

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 08:55

    Pieman has nailed it..
    Cogs is not a cash cow – if you are bringing him in for that purpose you are basically committing two trades to him one to get him in and then one to get rid of him….

    Appeal of Cogs is – could he potentially be a Top 10 mid? I think he can be very close to the mark. If that is the case getting a premo mid for $450,000 has a lot of appeal and could speed up the process of getting to full premo…….

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:04

    If he slots into M6 get him.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:52

    Get him in

    NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 23:29

    Get the man in. He's playing like a madman and will be GWS #2 mid behind Kelly IMO. Could easily be a top 10 mid by season's end

    Valens_FC · 04/04/2018 at 02:12

    Always scores well when he’s fit. He’s cheap because he gets injured a lot. That’s the risk…. and will hurt more if you traded for him vs started him.

StevoRivo · 03/04/2018 at 07:08

Naughton & Lambert to Bonner & Gray? Or do I persevere? Also Holding Hibberd at D2 for now. But trades are gold, they are not injured, and I can leave Naughton on bench and hope Lambert comes good?

    Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 08:03

    Get rid of Lambert. He is struggling a lot

    CalebCripps922 · 03/04/2018 at 08:07

    I would try and Hold Naughton and Lambert but it is tempting to trade.

      StevoRivo · 03/04/2018 at 09:14

      Maybe a hold but Bonner & Gray are tempting!

        David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:00

        They both have the crap bye.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:53

    Like it

Jim_bob321 · 03/04/2018 at 08:04

Hello community,
Should i be making 2 trades… Naughton to Bonner and Brayshaw to Kelly
Just be making the one trade and getting Kelly
Thanks community

    Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 08:20

    Just trade for Kelly. Leave Naughton on the bench.

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 08:27

    If you don't have Tim Kelly you trade your family, body parts or whatever to get him in & on field. Best rookie since Barlow

      neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 08:49

      Forgetting Oliver PIES. finally got the team I should have started with Traded Lambert for Martin . Was reluctant and gave Gator's idea of Petracca a lot of thought and the 14 bye. Now every trade will have to be done with Round 14 in play

Jordan · 03/04/2018 at 08:19

Thoughts on Tim tarranto (mid/fwd 365k) scores 104, 115.
Thinking of going Rayner to him

    Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 08:37

    Think he’s a keeper? Or else you’re using 2 trades on him

    TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:29

    I'd go Rayner to Christiansen if you're going to make a trade like that, will save you 100K, and christiansen will be around the mid-high 300K range in about 3 weeks time, which makes him perfect for a downgrade or an upgrade

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:54

    If you think you can keep him it’s a great trade

Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 08:21

Should Lambert be traded? Seems to be struggling a lot.

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 08:32

    You should never have had him in the first place. If you don't think he's going to be a top 8 Fwd then get rid of him now, I would

      Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 08:44

      I'm thinking of trading him to Mclean. Seems to be playing a lot of midfield.

        Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 09:13

        Shhhh pieman don’t tell them all

          INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 09:21

          Deleted now. If they were lucky enough to read it in the 20 minutes it was up then lucky for the viewer

          Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 13:38

          Now I'm curious just because you deleted it.

        TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:27

        Very happy i went with McLean at F3, even though he came at the expense of Curnow, he's well and truly performed for me Pieman

      b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 18:07

      I am keeping Lambert. He's been racking up the k's in the midfield so he's fit, just needs to find the ball. Time will tell but holding him and Hibberd to ride out the storm

Kyle · 03/04/2018 at 08:34

What are your thoughts on Merrett and Zorko boys? Considering bringing Oliver and Cripps for both of them since they’ll drop in price a lot. Cheers

    Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 08:36

    Why does it matter if they drop in price? If you never sell them their price is irrelevant

      TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:26

      If you can bring in that cash before they lose value, it becomes valuable in terms of upgrading other players. Given Cripps is scoring like a midfield Premo at a reduced price, that 70K you get by bringing him in for Zorko means that it can go elsewhere on the field

        Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 09:41

        I think that trade is worth more than 70k. You’ve got to back your premos in. Sideways trading all year will leave you with no trades left by the byes. If you’re rookies are set you should have no issue making cash.

Starky · 03/04/2018 at 08:36

I’m really keen on the communities advice.
At the beginning of the season I decided that I would trade Dangerfield down to Josh Kelly and keep the money to bring him back when he showed his fitness. To be honest, I didn’t think it would be this quick but I’m content to lose a trade.
As a result I’ll trade back up this week and then trade Lever down to Bonner. Would anybody keep Lever in my position?
Bonner at the moment looks like he’ll score more points this season and would be a good stepping stone.
I have used 0 trades and have all the scoring rookies

    neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 08:56

    Danger wont go up yet and then not much To be honest as great a pick up as he was for the dees he is pretty much irrelevant for S C

      neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 08:57

      THATS LEVER being irrelevant

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 09:18

    If you didn't start Danger, you wait. Despite his 130 he has a BE of 181. And that's because the algorithm used on starting price of previous years AV times 5.5 drops in round 3. I think it drop to 5.1. So unless a player significantly out performs last years Av they will fall in price. It's inevitable

      Wedge · 03/04/2018 at 09:42

      Say if danger was to score another 130 in Rd 3 what would his b/e become the following week? Trying to decide if it's worth waiting for his price drop.

        Daniel Z · 03/04/2018 at 10:08

        Pieman's right, the premiums almost always drop (a bit) in price as the rookies start to take more of the overall pie (sorry, I couldn't resist). If Danger puts up two more 130's, he will drop around $20k; continuing with that scoring until round 6 sees him level off just under $700k.

      Starky · 03/04/2018 at 18:01

      Thanks guys

BoltonsBlues · 03/04/2018 at 08:40

If you consider Naughton your only problem and can get Bonner, is it worth doing?

    TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:24

    Absolutely. Rookies are there for cash generation, and Naughton isn't going to end up beyond around 200ish come season end if he pumps out scores like this, whereas Bonner is the perfect stepping stone to a premium, or even a D5-6 come season's end

      Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:59

      do the maths. Bonner won’t make much more than Naughton.

      What do you think they will both score over the next 5 weeks?

      Give me some numbers and I’ll do the maths for you.

        TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 10:39

        Bonner with a breakeven of -44, will score mid 70s at lowest you'd think given his role, which should see him score between 350-400 over the next 5 weeks conservatively. Bonner to make 100K in the next 3-4 weeks, with around 120-140 over the next 5. That has him just short of 400K (probably around 380k mark)

        Naughton to score 40 points a week, bringing him to 200 over the next 5 weeks. wouldnt even make you 50K on those numbers, bringing him up to 210K

        Bonner is the running defender in a team that sees a reasonable amount of the ball, and will average around 20 odd touches a game, with a high kick/handball ratio which makes him hugely SC relevant (kicks, rebounds from 50, running bounces)

        Naughton is a young key back in a team with little defensive structure who are getting belted. Naughton not having the intercept role that he was potentially earmarked for preseason by the SC community (low disposal tally, poor defensive numbers)

          Pitch72 · 03/04/2018 at 13:50

          Top wright up Scacman, totally agree, if you can get Bonner in do it, Naughton is a slow burner and a bad one at that, could use Bonner as a stepping stone before rd 14 anyways if his form drops of.

Ryan · 03/04/2018 at 08:57

Trade or keep Hibberd?

    FranklinShow · 03/04/2018 at 09:03

    Hold, you are likely to trade to another premium backman who has a few ordinary weeks and Hibberd scores well. Give him a month at least then if still under performing look to move on.

      Disco · 03/04/2018 at 11:17

      Disagree, he is playing a different role with Lewis and Lever in the backline, not taking kick-in which stops his link ups, and not playing the QB role he did last year and with Bombers. Unless this changes fast you're only going to be able to make a sideways trade to a mid $400k Def. Hurley/simpson playing better scoring roles currently.

    ToneStar · 03/04/2018 at 09:16

    Keep. Seasons end, you’ll be happy having that trade there.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:55

    Must hold

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 18:09

    I am keeping him although trade to Simpson is tempting… Short term!

    Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 21:43

    Messing it up but gotta keep him ATM his going to leak cash but ya have to back ya premo's in for more then 2 weeks…… The temptation to trade is high tho very high.

FranklinShow · 03/04/2018 at 09:02

Started with armitage and cyril (i know mid price madness) but took a punt. Both have failed. I dont have Liam Ryan or Bonner. So was thinking following:

Rioli to L Ryan.
Armo to Bonner via Finlayson.


    TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:34

    big yes for both, other option is to go Armo to Coniglio

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:54

    I’m glad someone started with Cyril. I’d love to say hold him, he hasn’t played for a long time, missed a lot of pre season, hawks have a really great run of games after Richmond, but he not making money and he not a keeper.

      FranklinShow · 03/04/2018 at 12:07

      Massive hawks man and got Rolls with my blinkers on thinking he would produce what he has always produced. Love him as a player but not sure he is SC relevant anymore.

      Scacman – Already have cogs, Armo looks like he will avg around the 80 mark which means only a 50-$100k increase which isnt worth it when I could have bonner who could go up $200k in the next 3 weeks.

Done & Dustied · 03/04/2018 at 09:19

I am looking at trading Crouch to Cripps and Cameron Raynor to Justin Westoff, Westoff is scoring well and appears to be taking on more of the ruck duties with Ryder out for a while. Talk me out of it please.

    r_calve · 03/04/2018 at 09:33

    if your looking for a forward option go for toby McLean, he is playing more midfield and is cheaper than Westhoff

      David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:07

      Plus Westy has the crap early bye.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:56

    I like the trade idea. Not sure on Westy. I’d go another fwd promo. If you feel him though why not

Cam · 03/04/2018 at 09:20

What's everyone's opinions on brayshaw (freo), will he slowly get used to the standard or stay the same?

I have most rooks apart from: L.Ryan, Bonner, L.Fogarty

I don't think Ryan is a must get so will leave him, but from what I saw of naughton he just isn't cut out for it.

So am trading naughton to Bonner. Is it worth the trade?

    Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 09:46

    i won't be,

    He will make cash eventually I dont need him on field.. wont be wasting that trade.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:48

    Bradshaw can play.

    He kicked a 50m pass laces out across his body at full pace yesterday (not sure who to). I thought of Patch who would have said “he is good at the kicking thing”

    David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:08


On the ball · 03/04/2018 at 09:20

Peoples thoughts on Westhoff?

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 09:29


    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:57

    Think he has 4 weeks of great scoring left in him

TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 09:22

Thinking of trading Hibberd down to Bonner as both a cash grab, and that Bonner is scoring around the same rate in the same role, and using the money to upgrade Jack Graham to Coniglio, thoughts community???

    r_calve · 03/04/2018 at 09:34

    get coniglio, no matter what, he will end up scoring in the 105- 110 average

    Hegs · 04/04/2018 at 13:41

    I've made the Hibb to Bonner trade and banking the cash to grab Danger in a few weeks. Long term play but I'm scarred from Shaw last year.

Jdjsh · 03/04/2018 at 09:25

Hibberd for Shaw
Naughton for Bonner
Thoughts on the trade, don’t wanna throw away Hibberd so early but heater at his price looks like he needs to be picked up

r_calve · 03/04/2018 at 09:31

what does everyone think about Taranto, is he a good option and should i downgrade zorko or merret to someone like whitfeild or gibbbs

    David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:11

    Keep Zorko and Merrett. I like Taranto, attending center bounces and good JS now Scully has gone down. Good POD.

    Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 10:29

    Whitfield is an interesting one, without big last quarters in the last 2 weeks he could have been looking at 70-80. Hope he can maintain a 105-110 average

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 11:58

    I’d hold z man

Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 09:32

What is my best option in your opinion?

1. Hold Naughton and Andrew Brayshaw
2. Brayshaw down to a cheaper rookie and Naughton up to Bonner

I have most of the good rookies already. Don't have Waterman, Venables, O'Connor, L Fogarty… worth bringing them in so I can upgrade Naughton? And if Naughton keeps averaging about 50 from here on how much cash should he make?

    r_calve · 03/04/2018 at 09:46

    hold, Brayshaw he has only had 60% gamnetim ein both the games, if that gets up which it should, then his scores will

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 18:12

    Wasted trades for me

MRmoMAN · 03/04/2018 at 09:35

Well im trading out merret cos idgaf πŸ™‚

    David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:12

    I might get him cheap in a couple of weeks.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:00

    I like your style and attitude

Derek · 03/04/2018 at 09:40

I don’t have Naughton, but I say hold him. His 25 first round score will be gone next week so even if he scores 50’s and 60’s he will make you $100k.

I think he will improve. Already had a better game this week, did a few good things and his JS is good. He was even thrown forward for a bit on Saturday. You just need one good score from him to make good coin. The dogs draw is good for the next 6 weeks, 5 home games!

Bonnars big first round score will be gone next week, so his BE might be pretty high next week once the first round drops out. Might not be the cash cow people think by looking at his BE now. He is a very high priced rookie and I can’t see him giving a very good ROI. He was lucky to get over 70. If he continues with 70’s you will make a bit more cash than Naughton but not worth a trade.

If you have Bonnar, you will feel as though you need to play him, where you can just park Naughton on bench and let him slow burn.

    Liam Jones · 03/04/2018 at 10:34

    Agree completely hear derek

    Raza# · 03/04/2018 at 10:38

    So Derek. I shouldn’t trade Naughton to Murphy? I hope Naughton gets selected over the next couple of weeks. I am a little concerned at Murphy’s JS in a strong Crows side.
    I have three high priced rookies so I am not going near Bonner.
    Reading all the trading going on gives me an itchy finger but I haven’t had an injury or made a trade yet!!!!
    I have read your comments before and you sound as if you know what you are writing about.
    Good luck.

      Derek · 03/04/2018 at 11:41

      you will see the wise old heads always talk about holding your trades. it is hard to not trade when you have 30 trades left. So to make an easy trade Naughton to Murphy and make $80k seems like a no brainer, especially when the same wise old heads are saying you need to make cash and trade to full premium asap.

      firstly Murphy's JS is questionable. Only 10 touches on weekend, will do well to hold his place in the team. if he does, he won't kick two goals every week and will be a low scorer, say 40's at best. If he holds his place and gets 3 more weeks, you are looking at a $120k increase.

      Naughton is a key position player, not good for SC. But every few games they will have a decent score and as a rookie player that is what you are waiting for. If Naughton can have an 80 like Murphy did and importantly have that in his price calculation for 3 weeks, that will alone get him a $100k increase. More realistic is a 60 average for him. he will get better and i saw he improved alot from week 1. at a 60 average for the next 3 games he will make $85k.

      so you are looking at about a $35k difference. plus Naughton has good JS and you might want to hold him a bit longer and hope he has that one big score.

      There are alot of people looking at Naughton's BE and Bonnar's BE and thinking that is an easy trade. Once you factor out of the price equation next week Bonnars massive first round score and naughton's crap first round score, the BE's after next week will be a whole lot different, Bonnar may only get this week as a price increase and struggle to make next weeks' BE.

        pod · 03/04/2018 at 15:08

        Bonner not playing Swans every week

          Derek · 03/04/2018 at 15:35

          he was very lucky to even get 70, junk goal late

            SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:02

            Maybe so… although wouldn't call it a junk goal…. Also agree with sentiment of pods post in that Port Adelaide will not be playing Syd every week….

            As demonstrated in Round 1 at home v Freo – when Port get hold of teams he has the potential to score heavily….

            Wouldn't move heaven and earth to get Bonner in – but I am content having started him…. Heavily contested style and slightly heavy track v Sydney in Rd 2 wasn't ideal for Bonner…..

            Like the look of Port Adelaide draw in coming weeks in terms of Bonner scoring potential can see him getting plenty of ball this weekend v Lions at home, then have Essendon at Etihad (fast deck tailor made for Bonner), followed by Cats at home and then North also at Etihad, then another big deck and dry surface over in the west…..

            I can see Bonner easily averaging 90+ over the next 5 weeks – which see him appreciate very nicely to the point that after Round 9 trip overseas v Gold Coast he will have made enough cash to trade out prior to his bye if he has not reached keeper status…..

              Derek · 03/04/2018 at 16:14

              if you have him you are ahead of the pack. my comments were directed to people who were trading out a perfectly fit player to Bonnar just for cash generation.

                SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:40

                Agree mate – hence why in my comment I said I wouldn't move heaven and earth to get him in……

                  undies73 · 04/04/2018 at 14:25

                  OMG are you serious mate – Naughton has an average of 37 and a BE of 25, add to that the injuries to Trengrove, Adams and Morris which means he won't be able to play the intercept marking role he did in the JLT, he will be lucky to make any coin!!
                  On the the other hand we have Bonner who has a BE of -44, is a ready made running half back flanker that has taken Pittard's spot as the designated kicker out of the backline.. its a no brainer really. If you have Naughton get rid of him now, he will be playing a lock down role until those other players return, that could be 8 -10 weeks.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/04/2018 at 12:36

    Yep gonna hold onto naughton as JS is good slow burn on the bench.

    Started bonner as i wanted a D3 who could score 75 plus each week.
    Think bonner more than capable of this. Port look for him out of defence.
    Laser kick.
    Reckon he can score this most weeks with the odd big one.
    As for bringing him be a solid pick but not sure i would move heaven and earth to bring him in

    SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 14:34

    Like your thinking Derek, will hold on Naughton. My gut and head tells me to move Hibbo on, somewhere in the back of my mind says one more week.

    I have $219K in the bank, not sure if I should upgrade Cox now or wait a bit for him to increase some cash and then get Kreuzer when he drops in price.

    I was originally gonna do Hibbo for Simmo and Cox for Witts this week. What do ya think mate?

    Should I do
    Simmo and Witts
    Just Witts this week and Cox out
    Wait for Kreuzer and hold all trades this week.

    Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 15:15

    It would be easier for me to hold onto him if I could just bench him however Naughton or Murphy have to be fielded as my D6 which is kind of worrying

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 18:22

    Agree with Bonner. Have been saying the same thing about him. Lots of people going to regret it if he pumps out 70’s each week

Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 09:43

Hi All,

I have the gold pass but when I press projections on my PC it only tells me the BE, not the actual cash movement.. any ideas?


    David C · 03/04/2018 at 10:14

    Click on analyser and then cash cows.

      Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 11:13

      usually it tells me on the team page.. it does it on my mobile

    Russ · 03/04/2018 at 10:30

    How much did the gold pass cost and is it worth the money ($20)?

      Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 11:13

      personally i think its a must have if you are serious

      Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 22:43

      Yep $20 Russ, you can get most of stuff from other pages but its easy to be on the one where you play instead of jumping around and changing players.
      Is it worth it, yes I think so but it should include live scores as well IMO.

        hedski · 04/04/2018 at 07:13

        It provides live scores in game day Stirlsy.

          Nige · 05/04/2018 at 20:39

          Only live scores if you subscribe to the paper I think

flying mullet · 03/04/2018 at 09:49

Crouch for Dusty or mitchell???

    Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 09:53

    I like Titch personally. I like hawthorns chances after their game yesterday. Although Dusty has been consistent end of last year and this year he does know how to go missing.

      flying mullet · 03/04/2018 at 10:14

      should i give hibberd the flick for simpson????

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:09

    it might just be the one who suites your bye rounds better

    johnno2908 · 03/04/2018 at 13:17

    You want both sooner rather than later, but I would lean Mitchell first.

    Mitchell had 40 touches and 2 goals against a Geelong side who put a fair bit of work into him early, scoring 148 points against Ablett, Danger and Selwood, maybe even chuck Kelly in there.

    Apart from Dusty and Nank, Richmond players haven’t turned up in the first 2 games. There’s 3300 points that go out in a game no matter what, and Richmond only got 1388 of them, so I think that’s a big reason Dusty scored 160 from 25 touches and 5 goals. Richmond have to turn up eventually you would think.

Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 09:51

Big call here,

Merrett to Coniglio,

Will give me enough cash to turn O'Meara into a Dangerfield after one goes up and one goes down..

I am doing this because Merrett is going to burn me 70k if I hold him this week, Coniglio seems like a must have. And it means I can grab Danger.. surely this isn't that stupid. Someone convince me otherwise πŸ™‚

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 11:39

    Why trade Merrett? HIs price is irrelevant, you included him as a season long keeper??
    What is reasoning behind Cogs being a must have – do you see him as a Top 10 Mid at seasons end? If yes then he is outstanding value..

    If not you are essentially just burning trades – getting a rid of a premium mid for Cogs and then potentially needing to trade Cogs back up to a premium mid later in the year??

    Only get 30 trades!!!

      Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 11:53

      thank you, i think thats what I needed

      NoLanguage · 03/04/2018 at 23:36

      Hold Merrett. Trade JOM to Cogs.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:00

    Try and find another way to get cogs in

      Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 13:08

      im going to go O'Meara to Coniglio, it means i wont have enough for Danger but oh well

    jvm · 06/04/2018 at 11:08

    Coniglio will have a higher average than Merrett by season end. and dangerfield upgrade is a must…good trade.

      Johno · 06/04/2018 at 15:58

      Season Average is irrelevant now. The only important thing is average from this round onwards. Of course Merrett's average will be lower because he's had a 17 but from this point forward I think Merrett will outscore Coniglio.

Milos · 03/04/2018 at 09:55

Hello community,
Armitage to Coniglio before price rise?

    Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 09:56


    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:09

    could be your best trade of the year

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:01

    Hell yeah

    Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 22:47

    Easy call

    KSinny · 03/04/2018 at 22:56


SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 10:00

I must be out my head of getting rid Hibbo for Simmo. I just don't want to make the same mistake as i did last year with Shaw. I held Shaw most of the season last year thinking yep he'll come good and will get his role back.

Hibbo(Shaw 2.0) Seemed to have lost his role like Shaw did last year. I struggled to find a way to get Doc his price just kept getting higher and higher, by the time season ended. Still had no Doc<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ˜“" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f613.svg"&gt;

I know it's only round 2, i have used 4 trades so far and maybe one more next week. Will set back for a while after the trade next week until all the rookies are ready for culling at around Rd 5 or 6 barring any injuries will have 25 trades until then.

    MaurieD · 03/04/2018 at 10:28

    You are a donkey with no respect for trades. You will be crying into your weetbix come round 18 when you run out of trades. Show some discipline or suffer. You are out of your head and it is only round 2.

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 10:39

    If your going to burn through those trades make sure you look back at them at the end of the season. And what you will find is the sideways trades will have proved pointless. Hold your nerve

      SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 11:34

      Looking back at last weeks trade, if that's pointless. Then I must be doing it wrong, Ryder to Curnow and Rocky to Danger.

        Maurice D · 03/04/2018 at 11:37

        They were good but hold off as you said until round 5ish.

          SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 12:45

          That's the same thing i did held with Shaw last year, while his price dipped and Doc increased and missed out on points. Don't want to make the same mistake.

          Really think Hibbo will be another Shaw of last year this season, Lever, Lewis and Vince is hurting his points

        fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:04

        Wish I’d gone rocky to bloody anyone last week?

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:03

    I’m a fan of using 4 trades early to correct team if required. I also think Hibberd to Simmo is an upgrade so like it. Not a fan of Hibberd which may make me a poor source of advice.

      SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 13:00

      That's what i was thinking before the season started, 1st two or three rounds will do corrective on premos and rookies who i didn't start with.

      Luckily I started with all the must have rookies this year, had Ryder who got injured had to move him on. Corrective trade has to be made, the likes of underperforming premos or change of roles.

      I'm happy sit back for a few weeks after doing some corrections in my team this week. Unless injuries occurs.

        neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 13:29

        I agree with you Doncs. Those two trades were must do's but Hibberd is all Australian who scored 40 in a qtr. keep him. Ryder to Curnow is a wise trade as is Rocky to Danger GOOD TRADES.but not Hibberd. Trades should be preserved but those are dead set corrective trades. I TRADED Corey ELLIS and LAMBERT FOR DUSTY and Murphy 2 corrective trades my teams better good luck doncs go with your heart then sit back

        Marty · 04/04/2018 at 16:46

        Too early after two rounds to wipe out Hibberd

    Phildev · 03/04/2018 at 21:28

    My thoughts exactly. Shaw never came good and trading him gets me Danger. Anyway you can get Danger in is not burning trades

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:08

    Would concur on moving him on but four trades down by round 3 is a lot of trades down. Pull the trigger if you back yourself to bunker down and conserve trades until we begin culling rooks

      SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 23:36

      That's the plan Patch do my corrective trades now and sit back watch my rookies fatten up until Round 5 or 6.

      If I go with
      Hibbo – Simmo
      Cox – Witts
      This week, will have 26 trades left until the Rookies are ready for culling, barring any injuries by Rd 5 or 6.

      This is my team after the trades, will conserve trades after this week.

      Laird, Simmo, Doedee, Finalyson, Naughton, Murray
      Murphy, Mihocek

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

      Witts, Gawn

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

TheScacman · 03/04/2018 at 10:03

Do I trade Crouch to Dusty given Crouch has done a hammy as is going to miss serious weeks, or do I take Coniglio? Would have a bank of 234K for future weeks and the future bank of Coniglio or a genuine top 3 mid lock…..

    Soothsayer · 04/04/2018 at 20:07

    I have pulled the trigger on crouch to dusty and paid for it by downsizing Dow (195k) to TKelly which will make big bucks next week. Crouch will bleed cash on return and can be picked up after his recovery nice and cheap.

    BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 11:10

    Only pick cogs if you think he is top 8 mid

    JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2018 at 11:55

    I'd be going with Coniglio,he's scoring very well 129& 120 and will be going up 40k+ could be your M8 no problem.

Luke · 03/04/2018 at 10:23

I have hibberd and Merrett and ranked about 40k usually finish top 1000 and thinking of going Merrett to coniglio to free up some cash ready for early upgrade to try make up for lost ground I alReady have all the correct rookies and feel like coniglio will be a keeper or average 5-10 less then Merrett

Hibberd I will keep as I feel all defenders have a rough patch and drop in price and he will bounce back!

Thoughts guys

Harry · 03/04/2018 at 10:32

Should I swap Crouch to Oliver?

or downgrade to Parker / Cripps and bank the 60k

    Soothsayer · 04/04/2018 at 20:09

    Oliver is a great trade, if I couldn’t afford dusty I would have gone crouch to Oliver.

Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 10:35

Refraining from going hibberd to simmo but is O’meara to conigs worth a trade? Don’t see yaeger averaging over 80 and conigs looks like a must have

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 10:43

    do you have the cash to do the trade? is JOM your M6 or M5?

      Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 10:48

      Currently m6 doing the trade will leave me with 117k in the kitty

KSinny · 03/04/2018 at 10:38

I have 30 Trades left and 32.7k in the Bank.. Should i do any trades this week? 

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

MID: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Zerrett, Fyfe, Cripps, T.Kelly, Holeman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett) 

RUC: Gawn, Nank (Olango) 

FWD: Heeney, Billings, Smith, Tracca, Langdon, Fritsch, (Keefe, Venables) 

Would love some feedback and advice. Cheers community!

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 16:31

    Langdon out for 4 weeks.

    I wouldn’t trade him but u can’t play Venables for 4 weeks

    Nige · 05/04/2018 at 20:48

    I’m keeping Langdon and using him as my only loophole.

Arma · 03/04/2018 at 10:44

Can someone talk me out of trading Sicily to Taranto please. If he gets suspended then it is a definite yes but if he is free to play next week?

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:16

    Taranto was in my team most of the preseason, but left him out for Lobb. I think he will be best player from that draft. Knows how to find it, is a good user of the ball and knows where the sticks are. I think he's a good option. I'm tossing up on going a little more aggressive around cash generation and going Zac Fisher. I think he'll average 80-90, has the 110 in his price for the next 2 weeks and could easily appreciate $150k which would be great to get early in the season that can be put to work. Carlton have Pies and North next 2 weeks, so I expect them to be competitive in both games which will help his scoring. I think Lek nailed it when he said he looked like a young Simpson running around. Not sold on this yet and might just be some early week playing around before I come to my senses and save the trade.

    Andrew · 03/04/2018 at 11:23

    Hold. He started well didnt have the best game round 2 but will bounce back!

    Disco · 03/04/2018 at 11:25

    Sicily wasn't that bad, he was probably going to finish with closer to 80-90 had it not been for the Geelong come back. The scores capped out with 10 mins to go and he started losing points. He was on 70 points with 10 mins to play then scores reduced quickly due to the close game. Had he not giving a 50 metre early, his score would have been much better. He will dominate the easier teams.

      Arma · 03/04/2018 at 11:34

      Thanks Disco and Andrew. I didn’t need much convincing so I will hold for now.
      Would you trade if he gets suspended?

        Disco · 03/04/2018 at 12:32

        I'm holding, likely get a fine if anything.

          Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 15:12

          Nope..one week, the Flog's gone from my team πŸ™‚

GAZ · 03/04/2018 at 10:44

Downgrade Zorko to Congilio or Parker or Cripps or trust Zorko to go back up and score or is the tag too much for him

Naughton to who ??

    luke · 03/04/2018 at 11:11

    Hold zorko

Simo · 03/04/2018 at 10:50

Gday Community. I have the spare cash to turn Naughton into Bonner. Hold fire, or pull the trigger?


    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:06

    Pull the trigger

    Shukes · 04/04/2018 at 06:56

    Definitely pull the trigger. Bonner is a must have

    Maverick_ · 04/04/2018 at 07:46

    have you got doedee murphy Murray and finlayson Down back already simo?

John · 03/04/2018 at 11:03

Thoughts on trading Mccartin to Christensen?

    Sir Alex · 05/04/2018 at 02:12

    Yes good move, depeding if you have all other fwd rookies at lower end of scale.

Dice · 03/04/2018 at 11:06

Didn't watch Carlton game but does Kade Simpson clearly have his old role back??
Any info appreciated..

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:24

    Looks like it. He's such a good user. He scores every possie he gets

hedski · 03/04/2018 at 11:07

I have English F6 and Flynn (r/f loophole) at R3.
Thoughts on parking English at R3 and trading Flynn to Ryan. (W.C.)?
I'm not expecting him to score like he did on the weekend all the time but looks to have good js and will be an extra cash generator which will be handy.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 11:16

    gee English look way off AFL level on the weekend. he might be your loophole soon.

      hedski · 03/04/2018 at 11:44

      Yeah he was ordinary Derek, that's the thinking behind bringing in another money maker.

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:22

    That's what I'm doing. Think Ryan's cash generation is required. I'm happy to lose the loophole for a couple of weeks for the extra cash.

      hedski · 03/04/2018 at 11:46

      Cheers Northerner, now I have Crouch to worry about.

        Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 14:15

        Clarry is a legend. Always gets positive scaling at the end of each game as all contested. Never has a shocker.

    Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 22:53

    English wont be in team for long, 2 big guys to return his days are numbered.
    Kid is simply not ready needs another 2 years on the weights and to grow into his body.

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 22:59

    Don't mind an extra cash generator hedski – cash is king, as they say

Liam · 03/04/2018 at 11:08

Should I trade Garlett to Ryan.

Ryan could make some quick cash due to that 115.

    luke · 03/04/2018 at 11:14

    Not worth a trade in my opinion

    Da Boysh · 03/04/2018 at 11:15

    i wouldnt waste the trade personally, i am bringing in Ryan but only because I am downgrading a mid price

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:06


    Ado · 03/04/2018 at 12:37

    Nup not worth it

Luke · 03/04/2018 at 11:10

Traded crouch to D Martin, Lambert to Z Fisher, 400 k war chest plan on bringing in Danger over the next few weeks for a rookie, thoughts?? Current rank around 20,000 averaging 2,200 so far..

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:32

    Solid trades.

    Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:39

    I understand Lambert isn't performing but FIsher is anything but a safe option, he average mid 40's last year can you expect him to hold his average where it is now

      luke · 03/04/2018 at 12:13

      i plan on making 100 to 200 k and use as stepping stone.. thoughts?? this allows me a 400 k war chest

        Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 12:35

        You’ll spend 2 trades on fisher, seems silly to me

Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:11

What do I with Tom Rockliff, projected 77 and if he hits that he loses 75k. I wanna get rid of him but don't want to burn a useless trade.

    luke · 03/04/2018 at 11:15

    Must trade doesnt look the same as he was @ brisbane,

    Matt · 03/04/2018 at 11:22

    If you you want to keep getting sub 50 scores keep him haha, if not trade to Parker or coniglio

      Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:31

      Got coniglio but already have a lot of people in the sydney bye round do I still get parker or go to like a wines or someone

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/04/2018 at 11:44

    I reckon he has gotta go.
    I watched the game he was unsighted till after half time.
    Cripps, parker,,whitfield, selwood all much better options for about the same price.
    Or if u have cash go up to one of the big boyz
    Clarey be a good pick.

      Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:59

      I want parker but already have a lot of people in that bye round what do you reckon

ProTravo · 03/04/2018 at 11:14

Hold my trades or pull the trigger?

Considering JOM to Cripps/Gibbs & Hibberd to Bonner…

    luke · 03/04/2018 at 11:16

    i have hibberd and am holding for now

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 11:29

    I think you've used 2 trades that are essentially sideways. JOM to Bonner and Hibberd to a premo mid (but not über premo). It could look more attractive to me if you were getting in cogs if you thought he would be top 10 mid by season's end as the extra cash bank would turn it positive IMO.

      ProTravo · 03/04/2018 at 11:56

      That's a good way of looking at it. I already have Danger, Kelly, Mitchell, Cogs and Fyfe as premo mids.
      I would like to get Oliver, but the only good options I see are Cripps, Gibbs and maybe Parker.
      If I don't trade t one of those guys I'm probably better holding for now.

Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:24

What do I community? Got Rockliff who will lose my 75k this week if he scores 77 (which is a doubt). Im on 28 trades thus-far and wanna know what you guys think.

    fcabel · 03/04/2018 at 12:07


    Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 15:13

    Drop him like a hot rock.

Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 11:24

Urge anyone thinking about fisher to restrain. Massive trap, a bloke doesn’t go from averaging 47 to 105. A much better pod to look at would be taranto

    Osca · 03/04/2018 at 11:28

    You have me worried about Taranto with your logic. Similar average increase from 2017-2018!

    DocMartin · 03/04/2018 at 11:30

    What about Oliver’s huge step up last year? Some footballers improve you know

      Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 11:56

      oliver and Taranto both averaged 70 in their first seasons. It’s more to do with roles – Taranto getting more mid time and with skully out this will increase – Oliver playing onball. Don’t see fisher with his current role being able to replicate his first 2 rounds scores

        Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 12:39

        Let them pick him. It’s probably the same people that started with bell. They don’t listen

          Otter · 03/04/2018 at 12:41

          Would you pick Taranto if Sicily is outed?

            Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 12:43

            No, he’s not going to make that much cash and I don’t see him as a keeper, waste of 2 trades

              Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:33

              Spot on.

Ando · 03/04/2018 at 11:25

Naughton to Bonner & Fogarty to Ryan? Or just do the latter?

    Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 11:28

    Naughton to Bonner is good but Ryan may be a trap cos as a small forward he can easily score 30 – 40 next week.

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 12:05

    Don’t expect Ryan to score high but I still think it’s good

    LUKE · 03/04/2018 at 16:07

    I'm looking at exactly the same trades. I think it's Viable. With Ryan's score of 115 he will make cash quickly. Plus will keep his spot now for the next few rounds at least.

Andrew · 03/04/2018 at 11:29

Thinking about going beams to ryan via dpp. It would leave me with 3 on field rooks in the middle Kelly/Brayshaw/Holman but with 600k in the bank and the ability to turn brayshaw into anyone.

Should I make the trade instantly? Am i crazy to leave 600k in the bank while I wait for a price rise or 2 from my cows and some premos to fall???

Any help/ideas would be much appreciated!!

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 12:03

    No it’s not crazy.
    One mid-pricer comes along and out of nowhere scores 130 over 5 games and you’ll need that cha-Ching!

Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 11:31

My second ‘trade’ I can’t decide on but these are my options
1. Zorko to Dusty. Zorko still isn’t scoring enough and it doesn’t help that he plays for Brisbane. We could see that worse teams get less supercoach points through Gold Coast last year. $23,700 spare
2. Hibberd to Hurn. 3 new members of the defense; Vince, Lewis and Lever. Complete role change. $128,800 spare
3. Olango to English. Backup for Nic Nat or the alternative is Nic Nat to English but I don’t like that that much. $38,500 spare
4. Brayshaw to Fisher. Brayshaw just isn’t scoring enough. I got him in my team to score 70s or 80s and he’s barely got 60. $5,500 spare
5. No trade. Leave it and hope and pray

    DacZawson · 03/04/2018 at 11:46

    I'd be leaning towards option 5.
    Hibberd worth one more look

    Nate · 03/04/2018 at 11:48

    none of the above. post your side.

    1. find another way to get dusty. Zorko is a premium. good chance to be top 10 MID.
    2. Hibberd was a choice you made and need to put your gun back in the holster there and hope he averages 100. he should again be close to top 6 defenders, so making that call after 2 rounds doesn't sit right.
    3 – do you have another donut? if not, leave Olango, he is a great loop option.
    4 – low priced cash generating rookie for a high priced cash generating rookie is a waste IMO.
    5. tick.

      Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 12:00

      Okay. My side is:

      Def: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Bonner (From Naughton), Finlayson, Doedee, (Murphy, Murray)
      Mid: Danger, Titch, Zorko, Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Holman, TK, (Banfield, Garlett, Barry)
      Ruck: Gawn, Nic Nat, (OLango)
      Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Walters, Smith, Lobb, Fritsch (Ryan, Langdon)

        THE SALTSHAKER · 04/04/2018 at 06:29

        Ive got Lloyd instead of Hibberd. GAJ instead of Zorko, JOM + Armo dont have Tim Kelly. i have Petracca instead of Heeney and Garlet instead of Lobb otherwise identical

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 16:58

    No trade is your best option. Brayshaw only has to have one ripper game to make $$. Hibberd will come good. English will be a slow burner. Fisher won't sustain his good start.

DacZawson · 03/04/2018 at 11:44

Venables to Ryan is looking a worthy trade.
Anyone disagree?

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 12:01

    Venables to most players is looking good

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 13:56

    Absolute waste of a trade… total point chasing knee jerk trade…..
    Sideways rookie trade – Venables actually looked pretty good on the weekend… Both Ryan & Venables will be up and down… Won't play opposition as insipid as the Bulldogs were on the weekend every week….. Ryan is an excitement machine no doubt but will not be tonning up all that often….. Every chance that Venables could outscore Ryan over next few weeks and actually appreciate quicker……
    Ryan is far from a must have………

      Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 14:23

      Agree. I had Flynn as my loophole and can trade him out and swing English forward to get Ryan. No way I’d trade out Venables for him though as he will play all year and increasingly get mid time. He’s got the goods, just needs to find the pace of the game and work out how to find more footy.

Corey · 03/04/2018 at 11:51

Hibberd to Simpson
Hunter Clark to Coniglio
Is this a good move community?

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 12:02

    Clark to Coniglio looks good but I’m not sure about Hibberd trade

jssmith4699 · 03/04/2018 at 12:15

Should I swap Hibberd to Simpson
and go Dow to Coniglio?

lukey · 03/04/2018 at 12:19

Opinions on Gibbs?

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 13:58

    Seems like a nice fella… Looks much better with short hair….

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:00

    I like him on CSI πŸ˜›

    Beamo · 04/04/2018 at 18:19

    I still remember when he was the first to hit six sixes in one over. Gee that was a few years ago now πŸ˜‰

      Big G · 07/04/2018 at 17:35

      Probably make it in the West Indies best ever xi as spinner as well.

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:33

    Good Pod ths year…scoring well πŸ™‚

Andrew · 03/04/2018 at 12:22

Worth going Olango to English for cash generation or save the trade and keep a loophole option?

    Sc_Wow · 03/04/2018 at 12:33

    Loophole is far more valuable. English won’t make much

    Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 22:57

    Defo NO English won't be in team in a few weeks, might not be there this week.

      Mick · 04/04/2018 at 18:20

      Trengrove and Roughead both injured, he’s as safe as he’s ever been.

        Soothsayer · 04/04/2018 at 20:13

        I think it’s all that could save him, he could go 80 plus and make some cash, he’s not expensive.

D_I_L_D_O_R · 03/04/2018 at 12:27

Have 200k in the bank with a plan to get Dangerfield in early. With no injury concerns in my middle im thinking of trading Z.Merrett straight up to danger. Other options include zorko or holding the 200k (which i think probably doesnt help me) and waiting for another way to get dangerfield in

    KnowAll · 03/04/2018 at 12:33

    IF Dangerfield averages 140 over the next 2 games he will only DROP in price by $9k. He was on about 84 at 3qrtr time and with a less competitive opposition and a little better umpiring he wouldn't have made 115 yesterday. I don't see any reason to rush in to buying Danger there are plenty of other keepers who will go up in price after this round that you should be targeting first

      SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 14:05

      This crap about the umpiring is very amusing…. there was one borderline holding the ball decision that Danger had go his way – was correct call in my opinion as he got his hand to the ball just…..

      Danger along with Ablett was massive in the last 10 minutes of the game – the two of them basically dragged Geelong back into the game off the back of some huge one on one wins and contested possies….

      If Danger wasn't stranded deep forward for so much of the second half he could have went huge….. That will be the interesting thing to see in coming weeks how much he splits time b/w mid/fwd – it will be his role not umpiring interpretations that will have the impact on his scoring….. I would certainly rather have him in my side than not… Can't see him not being a Top 4 mid come seasons end….

        D_I_L_D_O_R · 03/04/2018 at 14:50

        So in your opinion worth the trade straight from Merret to Danger seeing as i have the cash saved for it anyway?

          SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:13

          My opinion is you will need Danger at some stage… the sooner the better… things crop up all the time in this game that can throw a spanner in best laid plans eg suspension, injury….. So you idea of waiting to get Danger in another way – may never eventuate…

          Certainly don't see the point of having 200K in the bank not earning points….. If you have the correct rookies cash generation should take care of itself in coming weeks…..

        Derek · 03/04/2018 at 14:58

        He was in forward line far too much for a $750k midfielder.

          Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 16:15

          Yep..42% Forward.

          SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:22

          Depends if the glass is half full or half empty Derek….

          Fact he still scored 130 despite high forward time could be seen as a positive… especially given the biggest issue was that when he was forward there was a big lack of supply – Hawthorn smashed Geelong in terms of I50'smaking it impossible to score points.. against inferior opposition with more supply, Danger being forward could actually help scoring at times….

          31 posessions (15 contested) and 2 goals – I am more than happy to have Danger in my side……

          His scoring is still going to be at uber premo level and can expect similar output to other years….. He will have games where he is more mid than forward and vice versa….. As I said who's to say when he's forward he doesn't end up with 6 snags providing Cats get their share of ball inside 50 – which against most sides they will……

          Don't think we need to overthink Danger – he will be Top 3 point scorer come season end regardless of role – (barring injury which we have no control over)

            Pitch72 · 03/04/2018 at 17:11

            Agreed, I don't know what all the fuss is over Dangerfield, if you have him thumbs up, if your one of those that are going to 'wait' until he is cheaper then your chasing tail already. Yesterdays game was a sign of better things to come, he is a beast.

              pod · 03/04/2018 at 17:23

              How good was that play with Cyril he stole it from him, never seen Cyril get robbed like that.

James · 03/04/2018 at 12:45

Should I trade mccartin to Christensen?

    Josh · 03/04/2018 at 14:49


Cozza · 03/04/2018 at 12:48

My 3 main mistakes were Hibberd, Menegola and Beams. Nailed the rookies, so happy with that.

Thinking I'll hold Hibberd and trade Beams and Menegola. Beams to Coniglio and Menegola to a keeper – Heeney or Frankling are easy choices, but is anyone thinking Acres or Toranto will be keepers? Liking them at the moment.

Gazza · 03/04/2018 at 12:48

Good or Bad

Brawshaw to Coniglio
Hibberd to Sicily or Krewzer to Nic Nat

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 11:33

    Keep Kreuzer without a doubt.
    Brayshaw to Coniglio is good but don’t do either second trade.
    Sicily is out for suspension and Kreuzer is a fantastic player

Brent · 03/04/2018 at 13:02

Thoughts on turning Naughton into L.Ryan and Hibberd into Coniglio?

Brunson · 03/04/2018 at 13:04

Trade Crouch or keep him, if trade who too ?

    JohnDJ59 · 03/04/2018 at 15:19

    Hi Brunson I had the same problem,traded him out for Oliver,you need to trade him,but without knowing who you have in your midfield,it's a bit hard to know who to recommend,Dusty,Oliver or Coniglio would be good pickups if you don;t have one of them.I'm assuming you already have Titch,if not and you have the cash,go for him.

      Soothsayer · 04/04/2018 at 20:14

      Yep or Cripps

Gsal · 03/04/2018 at 13:10

I’ve got 123k
Should I trade
Crouch to Dusty & Rayner to Bonner

Which will leave me with 14k

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 11:34

    Of course!!!
    A top 3 player, Dusty is

Jon · 03/04/2018 at 13:12

QUICK MATH! Actually laughed.

BrianTaylor15 · 03/04/2018 at 13:12

One trade left with 168k in the bank which do i take:
1) Upgrade JOM to to Coniglio
2) sideways trade Hibberd to Simpson or Hurley
3) sideways trade zorko or duncan to Martin
4) Fogarty to Ryan

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 19:20

    Don't agree with options 2 and 4

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:01


    nickgonzalez771 · 04/04/2018 at 17:03

    1. You're either getting a rookie or upgrading to someone you're holding for good.

    Sir Alex · 05/04/2018 at 02:19

    Option 1

Tim · 03/04/2018 at 13:23

I'm only playing for finals/grand final in one league. Should I hold Ryder? I have Gawn/English on field.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 14:54

    Has to go

    You won’t win many matches with English at R2

      Tim · 03/04/2018 at 16:04

      Cheers Dez

Josh · 03/04/2018 at 13:30

Went for a pod at the start of the season in sidebottom. 2 scores of 91 but not exactly what I hoped for but I'm keen to hold onto him as he looks like he's playing well and I feel he will have a good year. This week I have 2 trade options in mind.
1) trade crouch and sidebottom for coniglio and Kelly or Ablett (or someone else over 600k)
2) trade crouch to coniglio and naughton to Bonner

The Kernel · 03/04/2018 at 13:36

Naughton to Murphy
Fogarty to Ryan

Thoughts? Will pocket approx 80k from those trades alone plus more money to be made on the cheaper rookies. Makes sense to me? Thanks in advance for any feedback

    Gregham · 03/04/2018 at 14:40


ryan3315 · 03/04/2018 at 13:53

Need to trade Matt Crouch out, and want to get Dusty in before his price skyrockets.

In order to get the cash, do I trade:
Naughton to Murphy
Hibberd to Simpson


    Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 14:04

    Naughton to Murphy

Harley · 03/04/2018 at 13:54

Ellis to Bonner and Graham to Coniglio + 60k, sound good?

AuroraBorealis?! · 03/04/2018 at 13:57

Crouch to Oliver or Dusty? I like Oliver as a POD but i'm worried not having dusty will hurt me.

    goalpostmalone · 05/04/2018 at 10:57

    Dusty for his ceiling, Oliver for consistency. I'd definitely go Dusty between the two; he's a legitimate game winner and plays a class above the rest of the league.

    Also good for the vc option this year πŸ˜‰

Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 14:03

Lambert to Mclean or Smith

Clark to Oconner or another MID rookie.

Any suggestions community?


    goalpostmalone · 05/04/2018 at 11:03

    McLean over Smith.
    The doggies were awful against WC and McLean was still one of the standout performers. With Libba gone for the season, McLean has been given more mid time.
    Smith is still a good pick, but get McLean first.

Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 14:10

Sicily offered one week

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 14:25

    We should be allowed 1 additional Flog Factor trade per season

      Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 14:41

      I'm holding although with Langdon out as well that is going to stretch me very thin in defence.

        Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 14:42

        My bad confused langdon with finlayson

          INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 14:48

          I have Sicily & Langdon in the Fwd line. Doesn't take long for serious problems to surface in this caper

            neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 15:06

            me too pies and was all set for dusty REJIG happening F it geez he's a tool might dump him and keep lambert still gets me dusty and gets rid of that useless turd WHAT A FLOG worse than greene

            The Ranger · 03/04/2018 at 20:56

            Whats up with Langdon? Been away and can't see anything on the GWS website about him.

      Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:12


    Pitch72 · 03/04/2018 at 15:41

    Should have got an extra week for being a flog!

    Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 15:48

    Welcome Charlie Curnow πŸ™‚ goodbye flog!

    johnno2908 · 03/04/2018 at 20:44

    Part of me wishes it was 3 weeks to make the trade decision easier

      Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 21:00

      He's in my defence so it's either bring in Bonner or just wait a week. I'm leaning toward just keeping him. If not it's one trade for bonner and another back to a keeper, which i hope sicily can be.

      Other option sicily to shaw…

Daniel · 03/04/2018 at 14:34

Savage and Clark to Martin and Bonner? Thoughts?

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 15:04

    Savage has back to back 90's. Why would you do that

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 15:45

    What were you expecting Savage to score? He is averaging 94.5 why would you even have him on the radar to trade? Do you have 40 trades or 300 trades????

    So essentially you are trading out a bloke in Savage who is a premium keeper if he maintains his output and a rookie who you aren't giving a chance to raise in price (all be it his breakeven isn't great) to bring him two players that will also more than likely need to be traded at a later date – given neither Martin or Bonner are likely to be keepers… So effectively you are committing to a minimum of four trades and no certainty of any points gain????

    Thoughts are you a crazy!!!

      Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 15:58

      How is Martin not a keeper?

        SW Roosters XXX · 04/04/2018 at 08:22

        The Gold Coast variety Martin not a keeper in my books….

        Gold Coast have had a soft draw to start they will still be on the end of some beltings as the year goes…. 76 v Nth & 117 v Carlton – doesn't fill me with confidence that he will score at a level that will see him as a top 10 forward….

        Just wouldn't be getting carried away with Martin getting 117 against a insipid Carlton outfit on the weekend….. The 76 v Nth is hard to get a read on given it was played in a lake…….

        Martin also has a poor injury history and for mine is not a keeper – just my opinion and could well be proved wrong…..
        I would like to see a bigger sample size before I was trading him in with a view to him being a premium keeper…

        Each to their own……

        SW Roosters XXX · 04/04/2018 at 08:32

        If I was going to take a speculative pick for a premium forward – I would go Taranto over Martin for the following reasons:

        1. Is $82,200 cheaper.
        2. Playing a friendly SC role in a likely Top 4 team – Scully injury further solidifies role & JS
        3. Dual Position Mid/Fwd – gives some insurance if he doesn't get to premo status could still retain him and use his swing for him to be a handy M9/F7
        4. Wins more contested footy/clearances than Martin which is conducive to SC scoring and more consistent points output…. Has been a regular at centre bounces and high TOG stats.
        5. Gold Coast will get some smackings which potentially will limit Martin scoring output….

        SW Roosters XXX · 04/04/2018 at 09:18

        My bad – I presume he is talking about Dusty Martin!!!!
        Anyway still like Taranto as an option LOL

          Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 19:04

          Yeah think so haha, Savage for Bonner, Clark for Dusty he should've said..nice writing anyway mate πŸ™‚

INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 14:38

Zac Langdon has a broken thumb & out for minimum 4 weeks

    Josh · 03/04/2018 at 14:41

    Should we just hold?

      INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 14:46

      I think so. He not worth anything to get rid of. And he will come straight back in. He has a clear role

    SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 14:45

    I'll hold on him for a while, put Fritsch on the bench with (E) along side his name if he gets below 60 points, throw Ryan on field.

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 14:53

    Stephenson looks like a good substitute and has DPP

      INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 15:02

      If Stephenson keeps up his 63 Av he will make about 130k. And slow burn. Is it worth 2 trades for 130k. Cause you have to get him out again. Many other cows will be fattening up. I think if you have some form of cover it's best to hold Landgon

    Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 15:17

    Maybe I should trade him to Ryan

      INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 15:27

      That is an option Defying. But expect more turds than tonnes from Ryan

        Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 15:30

        Yeah that is probably what I am expecting, he would just be bench cover anyway. With Sicily out as well who I kind of want to keep this is a trade I am seriously considering.

          INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 16:00

          Don't trade Sicily for a week. I think he will have far more good games than turds. He has a key role that attracts points by the bucket load

            Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 16:06

            Yeah I won't be trading Sicily out, would still rather trade out Lobb and he is playing this week.

            Beezneez · 04/04/2018 at 10:15

            You're probably right Pieman but I have him and Crouch to deal with – Sicily to C Curnow is tempting.

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 16:23

    i thought that was good, he can be a nice loophole for Fritsch and Venables. then i looked at the draw, except for this week, can't use him because of GWS early games.

    Stirlsy · 03/04/2018 at 23:01

    I'm holding, might be able to do a bit of looping but not this week with Sicily out too HTF Greene gets up or im playing 1 short.

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:04

    Good for another loophole captain

neil demons delight · 03/04/2018 at 15:00

The difference between the no.6 mid and the 15th over the journey will possibly be under 200 and that.s where Coniglio sits about 15th. But to get him early will offset this but he has to be a keeper

EasyMoneySniper · 03/04/2018 at 15:06

Hey community,
Haven't had to make a trade yet, but i have to bite the bullet on dusty. So many points there and i'm tired of cursing the TV every time he does something amazing. Merrett or Neale will have to make way for him. Both Class mids but dusty is on another level.
Which one should make way???? Merrett losing all this cash will not affect the decision as it will be done this week.

Thanks Community

    INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 15:21

    Normally I would advise against trading premiums. But I think soon if you don't have Dusty Titch or Danger you will be panicking. Zerrett is the better player to retain if you look at the byes. Danger Dusty Fyfe Neale all have Round 14

      EasyMoneySniper · 03/04/2018 at 15:29

      Thanks Pieman, Do you think i should factor in that Zerrett has more of a chance to get attention from other teams? or am i reading into the job Banfield did on him this week?

        INPieman · 03/04/2018 at 15:53

        You should factor that in. But it seems he can handle attention better than Zorko or Sloane. I really like Neale but his bye is painful. Now is the right time to start considering byes & trading accordingly to make sure you don't have a week of carnage

TommyC99 · 03/04/2018 at 15:14

Was planning on going Mills – Ryan but the Sicily out throws a spanner in the works. Can’t do the trade unless I do a rookie corrective trade. I wanted to trade either Naughton, keeffe or Dow to O’Connor/Murphy/Ryan to give me the funds. But I also have Langdon in my forward line which I want to hold, but means no Sicily or Langdon = no cover if anyone else goes down. What should I do community?

Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 15:16

Simpson and Parker or Sicily and Dusty?

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 16:12

    Simpson and Parker

Tony · 03/04/2018 at 15:27

Trading Hibberd to Bonner and Brayshaw (freo) to Dusty. Thoughts guys

Darcy Franks · 03/04/2018 at 15:28

Is getting Seedsman and Dangerfield?

Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 15:42

Everyone is panicking to get Dusty in. And I get it. But seriously he's already expensive. Won't get too much more expensive than this. One poor game and he'll be yours for $600K. History shows it will almost certainly happen. Even Danger was that cheap last year at one point. Maybe when Dusty drops in price you will have cash cows to slaughter… If you have two of Danger, Dusty and Titch that's good for now.

    Russty_ · 03/04/2018 at 15:47

    Agree Steeeve, peeps are worried about getting too far behind but let's face it, if we didn't score 2400+ two weeks in a row we're already behind, I've got Danger and Titch and can wait for Dusty when he drops down to affordable, and it will happen.

Reillz · 03/04/2018 at 15:58

Trade or keep Dahlhaus not scoring well at all

    Pitch72 · 03/04/2018 at 16:40

    Get rid of him, he sucks this year.

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:44

    Western Bulldogs are a train wreck at the moment……

    KSinny · 03/04/2018 at 16:50


    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 17:07


    Steeeve · 03/04/2018 at 21:06

    He was bad last year and still averaged 90. Honestly I'd hold. Chances are you'll trade him and the bloke you bring in will get you around the same score from here on.
    On the other hand, his form guide is bad. Really bad. The back half of his 2017 was very poor and he has continued on with that. It was enough for me to swap him for McLean just before the Doggies first game.

Thomas · 03/04/2018 at 16:07

Clayton, Coniglio or Parker for Crouch?

    seen_burns · 03/04/2018 at 19:54

    Coniglio, seems like he will be averaging around the same as the other 2 and he is 450k

Harrison · 03/04/2018 at 16:08

The “G” is silent in coniglio patch & lek… just for future reference. You blokes have no idea about SC or football in general probably. My ears are bleeding

    Nick · 03/04/2018 at 16:24

    Then don’t listen. Simple. Some of us appreciate the efforts the boys put in.

    Maverick_ · 03/04/2018 at 16:32

    Post the link to your podcast please Harrison and we will have a listen and see how perfect you are, no? Yeah Didn’t think so! Keep up the good work Lek & patch.

    D_I_L_D_O_R · 03/04/2018 at 16:35

    Also, way funner to say Coni-ig-lio, try it.

Mike · 03/04/2018 at 16:13

The way i look at it is . BONNER is scoring better than HIBBERD. Bonner is just shy of 300k cheaper . Why would you keep hibbered. Ill be very surprised if he is in the top 6 backs even 10 backs for the year. I cant see hibbered pumping out 145 ,157 ,132 over the year . Let alone 101 ,97 ,111. HIBBERD your time is up Melbourne a playing you in a shit role you are the Heata of 17 . THOUGHTS PEEPS

    Frankston Phil · 03/04/2018 at 17:22

    I agree with you he is going to leak cash but I already have Bonner. I'm thinking down to Murphy or Z Guthrie and up grading Hunter Clark in my mid to a premo but who Danger or Dusty or possible Cripps.

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 18:22

    Bonner is not a keeper imo

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:06

    i'll be getting Hibbo as one of my first upgrades.

      Mike · 03/04/2018 at 19:37

      No use upgrading if hes not a premo

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:06

    You watch the supercoach gods this week when everyone has traded Hibberd and brought in Bonner. Bonner will score 50s and Hibberd 120.

      BVB21 · 04/04/2018 at 19:00

      This happens all the time.

      It’s like bringing in English last week for Ryan lol

      SCdonkey · 04/04/2018 at 19:21

      Throughout 7 years of his career, he's only scored 7 times over 120points, last year was the only time he scored over 120 three times in a season. And for him to pump one this week, Lewis will need to be concussed or break a leg, then he has Lever roaming around the back half and Vince running from the back half through the guts.

      Good luck to those who will persist with him, and those who moved him on. Hopefully they swapped Hibbo for a better premo (keeper) not to someone who might be a keeper. May SCgods help you if ya go down that path.

        SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 20:45

        I don't rate hibberd one bit. Has never averaged 100 in a year. He was a top defender at the bombers when it was a terrible year for backs. I doubt I will even pick him up if he went below 450k

D_I_L_D_O_R · 03/04/2018 at 16:17

Started with Dunkley with the hopes of more midfield minutes and a big step forward, which he has done, so im not completely disappointed. a start of 87-67 will see him go up in price but i am considering a straight swap to Taranto, have 200k in the bank that im planning on using for danger in the coming weeks. Thoughts?

    SW Roosters XXX · 03/04/2018 at 16:50

    Trading one midpricer to another midpricer will see you quickly waste your trades!!!!
    Do you see Taranto as a keeper?? Wouldn't think so?? So by bringing him in you are effectively committing two trades one to get him in then one to get him out – is his points production going to be that much greater than Dunks to justify two trades?

    Having said that if you think he can keep up current scoring and be a keeper as a forward then that is a totally different kettle of fish… Maybe he can???

    Getting Danger in whilst he is still relatively unique and at low ownership to previous years could be a bigger advantage over the field than swapping Dunks for Taranto though……

    But if Taranto proves to be a keeper as a forward at 365K then it is good buying….

      D_I_L_D_O_R · 03/04/2018 at 17:03

      My team is currently in a good position. Started with all the good rookies, have all my trades and 200k bank, scored 2402 this week. My biggest issues are Zorkos scoring, which was okay this weeek and i think hes a top 10 mid. Zerretts scoring output, concerned that D.Smith will take some consistent points off him and he doesnt have a crazy cieling (max 141 the last 2 years) that he wont be a viable top 10 mid.

      Originally planned to trade Coniglio up to danger early but Coniglio is outperforming my expectations and looks like he can actually be a keeper. Last year i got through the year without using all my trades, had like 4 left i think, because i was a bit too conservative and didnt jump on when others did (oliver for example).

      If Taranto can average 85, say 13 more points than dunkley, is it not worth it for both the points and cash generation?

      Thanks for your feedback SW, appreciated.

        SW Roosters XXX · 04/04/2018 at 06:24

        Only feedback and an opinion mate… doesn't make it right – trust your gut and research….

        For what it's worth I am starting to like the merits of getting Taranto in – strongly considering him myself.

        His DP mid/fwd status could be valuable latter in the year and possibly allow him to be a swinging M9/F7 option as a worse case scenario.

        Best case scenario would be he keeps his output going averages 95+ which would have him as a premium forward keeper… if that eventuates he is great buying at just over 365K.

        So I guess what I am saying is if you can see a permanent role for him in your team – which there potentially is then I think go for it…

        But if you think you will be getting him in (1 trade) and then getting him out again (1 trade) it is less appealing.

Maverick_ · 03/04/2018 at 16:18

Thoughts on trading lambert?
Just feel he may need to go but his work rate is elite, the points may come yet.
Not a fan of rage trading usually but I could go down to a L. Ryan as I do have a heavy fwd line.
Could bank some serious cash for a dusty fund!

Heeney, lambert, McLean, smith, Sicily, lobb (fritsch ZGL)

    Crowboy94 · 03/04/2018 at 17:35

    I'm in the same position mate, but I think I will trade him to Mclean as I don't have him.

    If I were you I would trade down to a rookie just like you said.

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 17:59

    Lambert to Ryan makes sense in your forward line. With Fritsch on field.

BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 16:28

Hi guys need some help

D – Laird, Savage, Sicily, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (O,Connor, Murphy)

M – Dusty, Titch, Crouch, Fyfe, Parker, Cripps, Kelly, Holman (L.Fogarty, Barry, Banfield)

R – Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

F – Billings, Lambert, D.Smith, Maclean, Lobb, Fritsch (Langdon, L.Ryan)

I have $58k and sitting in 1527 place.

I am trading out Crouch and Lambert.

I’m not sure whether to go Oliver, K.Simpson (Via Sicily DPP)

This would guarantee me two keepers but the problem is would leave me no money and also not bench coverage in forward line with Sicily and Langdon out.

Part of me says to pick Coniglio and Curnow and have $277k in the bank. Can also put E on L. Murphy and Fritsch and loophole)

This option also leaves money to upgrade some other mid pricers who definetely aren’t locks (Lobb, Sicily etc)

Other options are cogs, buddy etc

Would be appreciative of any advice

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 16:35

    Also should have said have 30 trades.

    Think cogs could be top 10 as well.

    Taranto another one I am considering.

    Not sure if having two premiums outweighs a war chest

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 17:56

    You either take Crouch to Oliver and it compromises your forward choice, e.g. you can’t get Heeney or Buddy.

    Or, you get cogs. And then you have your choice of whoever you want in your forwards.

    I love Clarry, but I’m also a fan of cogs so probably leaning to the latter combination.

    Sicily probably just bench for a week.

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 17:56

    i don't think you need to be rushing to get either of Simpson or Oliver in. i would be waiting a few weeks before you start getting your premiums in, wait for them to drop in price. Getting them now is just the same price as what everyone else paid for them. are you wanting those two because they are the ones going up in price or have they always been on your must have radar?

    i am seriously looking at hibbo in a few weeks

    Except Coniglio, he won't be any cheaper than he is now.

      BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 18:20

      I think Simpson won’t be this cheap again as he is getting all Dochertys points.

      Oliver is pretty much straight swap for crouch. If cogs is top 10 it’s a no brainer to bring him in.

      Simpson and cogs I think is good. Leaves me some room to move if I have to get rid of lobb.

        derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:09

        68/70 players with a starting price over $500k in the last two seasons have fallen below their starting price at some stage during the year. simpson will be the same.

          BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 19:52

          Thanks Derek.

          So you think I should just bank the cash and pick off fallen premos. Hibberd etc

Matt · 03/04/2018 at 16:28

I have 30 trades and 22.4k in the bank, is there any trades I should make? I’m thinking getting rid of Menegola and Rayner.
Laird, Hibberd, Savage, finlayson, Doedee, Murray,(Naughton, Murphy)

Dangerfield, Martin, Mitchell, Fyfe, Parker, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Kelly (Dow, Holman, Banfield)

Gawn, Naitanui ( Cameron)

Menegola, Heeney, Devon Smith, Rayner, Stephenson, Fogarty (Garlett, Fritsch)

Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Krups · 04/04/2018 at 10:21

    Get rid of that flog Menegola

LUKE · 03/04/2018 at 16:33

I've been a long time listener to the Jock Reynolds podcast. Hats of to Lek and Patch for keeping the podcast and website running. Big shoes to fill but one (or two) can only try. I had a light bulb moment and thought since there is so many posts here. Why not make it a subscription site? $50 per year per person. I'm sure enough money would be raised to bring Jock, Higgo and Crouching One back. It's a tough job and a lot of effort goes into writing articles and podcasts. Editing and studying. C'mon Community let's get behind it and sign a petition and see how many subscribers there would be for next year and try and make a comeback for these Gentleman. Fine Fellas and dead set Bloody Veterans of our great game Supercoach. Jock we need you Father of Fantasy

    Tundro · 04/04/2018 at 20:33

    You’re assuming its a cash solution. I think you are barking up the wrong tree. Times change, things change. We move on. Lek, Patch and co, the boys know their sh!t, what I think’s missing is a natural extrovert or two to mix things up, otherwise it sounds forced. let it evole. If you don’t like it, move on brother.

The Wizard · 03/04/2018 at 17:12

Hey Community. Have Laird, Hibberd, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray, Murphy, Naughton and Coffield. Wondering whether I should do the Naughton to Bonner or Coffield to Bonner? Even potentially O’shea? Mind you have been using Coffield as my loophole option.

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:00

    i wouldn't be surprised to see Coffield get a game this week. so hold him. if not named he should be traded to Bonnar

Purple · 03/04/2018 at 17:13

hey communtiy

with sicily out for a week i've come to believe that this wont be the last time it'll happen, and that he's going to cause me headaches. so regardless of other opinion he's gone from my team.

now before this podcast i said to myself fisher could be a good downgrade option as a bonner type player, making some cash up to around 375-400 and hovering in that area, i feel even if he sits there for a while whilst i pick an upgrade he wont drop too much, making him easy to swing. but the other option which requires two trades is that i downgrade sicily to waterman (i know not ideal) and upgrade brodie (dont ask why i still have him) to coniglio, using 2 trades.

would like to hear your thoughts

    Jacko · 03/04/2018 at 17:59

    Why did you pick Sicily in the first place. Because he was cheap.
    I’m keeping him. He is averaging 92!!

    NoLanguage · 04/04/2018 at 09:41

    Waste of a trade

    Da Boysh · 04/04/2018 at 14:29

    agreed, he is a hold, Bonner output will decline with pittard back and you will just need to upgrade fischer/bonner anyway wasting another trade

    Tundro99 · 04/04/2018 at 20:41

    Hold mate.

Frankston Phil · 03/04/2018 at 17:24

Dusty, Danger or Cripps?

    Ben · 03/04/2018 at 17:59

    Get cripps he will go up heaps

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:06

    is that a question?

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:03

    Dusty for mine mate.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 13:21

    Dusty is probably ideal since you mustn’t have Danger already

TommyC99 · 03/04/2018 at 17:27

Which trade should I do?
1. Naughton – Murphy
2. Dow – O’connor (Creates def/mid swing with findlayson)
3. Dow – Liam Ryan (garlett into mids)
4. Keeffe – Murphy

    Northerner · 03/04/2018 at 17:36

    I don’t think you should do any as Dow will come good. However, if you were going to make a trade, Ryan is the one who will make quick cash.

      TommyC99 · 03/04/2018 at 18:11

      I need to raise a small amount of cash to go mills – Ryan, hence why I need to do a rookie correction trade. If Kruez is out, I can just use the cash I get from trading him

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:07

    4. Keeffe is the only one not playing

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:23

    As long as keeffe doesnt play then 4

Finnius · 03/04/2018 at 17:28

I have Sicily AND Langdon and Green (who may not get up this week). Would you be trading Sicily to Coniglio through DPP and Garlett into the fwd line to give me some extra cover if Green is out as well?

I also have Kreuzer as well though…

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:09

    Kreuzer is playing. its on the Blues website

    Coniglio is better option than Sicilly

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:26

    Kreuzer will play so don’t trade. You can hold Langdon without difficulty and Sicily is going to be inconsistent. You only should worry about Greene, who is a great player anyway, but you should trade him to Walters, McLean, Franklin or Smith

Nick · 03/04/2018 at 17:41

Thoughts on this trade community;
Merrett to congs then Naughton to Simpson?

    BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 18:21

    Would never trade Merrett

      Nick · 03/04/2018 at 18:31


    PeteB · 03/04/2018 at 18:40

    Merrett could go down $100k over next few weeks while Congs could go up around $70k. Most of the price change will happen after this round. I’m giving serious thought about making that trade.

      Nick · 03/04/2018 at 19:26

      Not worried abt the drop/ rise in cash, thinking abt rankings more than anything

        BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 19:51

        you are thinking the right way nick.

        Pete is thinking short term and will prob run out of trades.

        It sucks people that people will pick up Merrett cheaper than u bought him for but that’s just bad luck.

        He is a keeper and will have another big year

newbie · 03/04/2018 at 17:42

I currently have D Beams falling flat after starting him instead of Parker.

I want to get him out this week and these are my two options. I’m thinking option 1 for now.

282k currently in the bank.

Downgrade Beams to Westhoff, leaves me with 360k in the bank to upgrade J Graham to Danger in the next couple of weeks.

Or I get get Danger his week which is a straight swap for Beams. I have the cash reserve but this only leaves me with 90k and I still have to make a corrective trade for J Graham


    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:28


    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:40

    Get Danger

BoltonsBlues · 03/04/2018 at 17:51

I never should of picked the flog Sicily
now his week off has given me a reason to trade the flog
Naughton and Sicily > Bonner and D Smith, done dusted done

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:41

    Sure. Fine.

    Tundro99 · 04/04/2018 at 20:44

    Silly is averaging 92 and cost $402k. You are burning a trade. Hold

Danny · 03/04/2018 at 17:54

Simpson or Shaw? Just keeping in mind the difference in price

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 19:23

    Simpson, I wouldn't touch Shaw personally

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 20:02

    Shaw does seem to be getting plenty of the ball.

    i wonder with Scully going down, Whitfield will play the wing role, leaving shaw alone in defense as the loose man

      SW Roosters XXX · 04/04/2018 at 11:51

      Don't see Scully injury impacting on role of Whitfield or Shaw….

Jordan · 03/04/2018 at 17:55

I know one is on the bubble and one isn’t but who has more potential to make a lot cash, out of waterman and o’connor

    Tyruddanaut · 03/04/2018 at 18:40

    Waterman seems to have better JS but neither have it good. At least waterman will last 3 games

Bennmoore4 · 03/04/2018 at 17:56

Dahlhaus is killing me with a 69 avarage seeing as hes 500k, im thinking bringing in Taranto, Westoff or C.Curnow or should i back him in.


chris · 03/04/2018 at 18:24

Thoughts on Merret to Danger?

    Derek · 03/04/2018 at 18:42

    Do you have cash to do in just one trade?

      chris · 03/04/2018 at 18:49

      Would have to go lobb to taranto which I will probably do anyway

        derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:11

        doesnt sound that good

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:38

    Stick by your premos. If u came in with no Danger and no bank to get him I wish u luck

Dave · 03/04/2018 at 18:45

Lambert and omeara for fischer and coniglio? Or pick up ryan as a rookie and pick up a premium mid (oliver or parker)…or ryan and coniglio and bank 200k ish…thoughts?

    b_sh3p · 03/04/2018 at 19:30

    I am keeping Lambert. Last option great if Coniglio stays premium otherwise you're using 2 trades to upgrade him later

      Dave · 03/04/2018 at 20:46

      Is fisher the trap of all traps?

        BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 20:52


    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:40

    Ryan and coniglio. You dont spend for the sake of spending its a very common fallacy.

Sizza · 03/04/2018 at 18:45

Getting rid of Angus Brayshaw for Jarryn Geary? Or should I upgrade straight to Laird/Simpson.

If I choose Geary I'll have $222,800 in hand though

    Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 19:21

    Geary is a trap. Upgrade to laird or simmo

      BVB21 · 03/04/2018 at 19:51

      Agree with Geary being trap.

      Laird is a must have!

    PeteB · 03/04/2018 at 20:00

    Geary’s nearly 30 years old and has never averaged more than 80 a season. Hard to see him maintaining his current scores. Has trap written all over him.

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:41

    Season gone with a couple of moves like that. No exaggeration.

Kram · 03/04/2018 at 18:47

Beams to danger? got 200K

    Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 18:51

    Lock it in

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:13

    Beams won't be top 10. even i'd do that trade.

      Kram · 03/04/2018 at 21:06

      Cheers fellas. Went beams initially as it thought he'd carry on alright without rocky but he just can't seem to find the ball.

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:47

    Beams is an elite midfielder when his body is right, its still a possibility hes a top 10-15 midfielder. Regrettable trades are always made early

derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:25

We really need Higgo and his Quantum Team Mechanics.

If he was here, i'm sure he would be telling everyone that this round is for Correctional trades only.

In the following order;

1) do you have the right rookies? ie ones who have reasonable JS and will make you plenty of cash.

2) do you have any long term injuries? especially to premium players greater than 2 weeks?

3) has there been a significant role change for a selected player that will affect his long term scoring?

unless any of the above applies, i would (pause the only way Higgo knew how to)….. HOLD.

the time will come when we can start to cull the cash cows and pick off the fallen premiums. Don't trade in premiums for the same price as what others have already bought them for, wait until you can get them at a cheaper price, therefore putting you ahead of the other players.

2 weeks is not enough time to determine if Hibbo won't be a top 6 defender. back your premiums to deliver, even if they are Lambert or Mills.

conserve your trades.

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:26

    ….. and of Course Crouching will be saying BANG BANG BANG…. you trade your ar$$ off.

    dontblushbaby · 03/04/2018 at 19:31

    Yes, I'm considering on holding on Mills now, the Swans will have to make some changes of the way they play and Mills could be a beneficiary of that IMO

    Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 19:34

    Derek do you think Ryan is one of those rookies that we need to have?

      derek · 03/04/2018 at 20:12

      he is going to make some very serious cash over the next two weeks. I don't have him as i only went with 3 rookies in forward line and changed to Z-Langdon at the last min. With langdon missing the next 4 weeks, i will consider getting him and banking the cash. What is a trade worth eh?

        Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 20:29

        Yeah I am tossing up the exact same trade. Leaning towards making it at the moment with Sicily out in the forward line as well.

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:48

    from the archives…

    SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 20:01

    1) i have all the rookies that's a must
    2) don't have any injuries in this round, though had Ryder in Round 1
    3) Hibbos role has changed, Lever, Lewis and Vince has affected his point scoring, i think it's gonna be a long term like Shaw last year. I'd hate it if it happens again to me this year, hoping he'll come good and get his role back. I'm at 99% of pressing that trade button at this stage. I have until Friday for that 1% to convice me otherwise.

      derek · 03/04/2018 at 20:07

      i had Hibbo in my preseason team. then i heard that Lewis was going to be playing in defense and i took him out. I don't think Lewis played any of the JLT's.

      i thought the same about Hurley and the talk of goddard playing more in defense. Everytime i look at goddard he is in the guts, maybe later he will affect Hurley

      I must say that Hibbo is now very high on my watch list to be picked off at a fallen premium price.

        SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 20:15

        Then it will be my loss and another mans gain if I go through with the trade. But knowing luck he'll come good this round and Simmo turds it this week. lol

          derek · 03/04/2018 at 20:24

          they were talking about him on the Couch program. Roos showed vision of him hitting Hogan with a 60m bullet pass with his left foot in the last quarter. i thought to myself… interesting.

            SCdonkey · 03/04/2018 at 21:01

            Don't understand why Dees letting Lewis doing the kick-ins. Hibbo has an awesome left kick and almost 100% accurate hitting his target out of defense everytime. Lewis is a flog, they should drop him in 2s unless the Dees paid too much on him to be in the 2s.

        OldOcker · 04/04/2018 at 08:25

        Jordan Lewis MEL MID $479,800 29 29 29 23.8 1.12

        LEK has the full Ultimate stats (emailed yesterday)

          Derek · 04/04/2018 at 10:17

          i think Lewis had a tight hammy early in that game and went off in first quarter

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 07:24

    Hibberd does have a role change, though

    Tundro99 · 04/04/2018 at 20:45

    Spot on Derek

Accibender · 03/04/2018 at 19:31

Considering making the following trades

Lobb to Curnow

Langdon to Ryan

    meph · 03/04/2018 at 19:46

    I have Lobb but considering holding Round one was a good score, this week was putrid. I have him at F5 so can afford to give him a few more weeks.

      derek · 03/04/2018 at 19:56

      he gave away two FA in the first couple of minutes and was -10.

      was on 38 at half time, effectively scored 48 in first half.

      the second half he was just beaten by a very good ruckman.

      he comes up against Sinclair this week, should go ok.

      remember he scored 97 the first week against English

      as the #1 ruck of a very good football team, you have to give him every possible opportunity.

Shaun · 03/04/2018 at 19:38

Is murphy a must or wait and see on the rest coming through richards and o shae migjt have better job security

    Ja191 · 03/04/2018 at 19:57

    O’shea has poor js and is only in due to kennedy injury. Murphies js looks pretty good with crouch and a few others being out

      Paul · 04/04/2018 at 21:20

      Kennedy is back this week. Keep a close eye on that. Byrne will probably miss though. Darcy Lang will be back from injury very soon too, and he'll take out a player like O'Shea

Jimmy · 03/04/2018 at 19:40

1. Weitering and Libba out….Shaw and Curnow in.
2. As above out…..Z. Guthrie and Danger in.

Community which option

Shane O Mac · 03/04/2018 at 19:41

I took some risks that have failed spectacularly so far. Whos my priority to offload

28 trades, 29K – lost Ryder and Libba in R1

B Laird, Ryan, Bonner, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Keefe)
M Dusty, Fyfe, Treloar, Parker, Cripps, Whitfield, Fiorini, Kelly (Banfield, Brayshaw, Holman)
R Gawn, Nic Nat (English)
F Buddy, Cameron, Lambert, Sicily, J.Thomas, Fritsch (ZGL, Garlett)

On the block:

Im happy to go aggressive to fix up, depsite already using 2 trades. Im thinking Thomas down to Ryan, and Fiorini to a premo FWD via Garlett

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 07:27

    I’d trade Fiorini to a premium defender imo. You don’t want to over stack your forward line, then you won’t have enough flexibility

LUKE · 03/04/2018 at 19:47

Merrett -> Coniglio . Sicily -> Laird. Thoughts anyone?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 07:27

    Is Merrett injured? If he is sure

    Defying_Madness · 04/04/2018 at 12:45

    Waste of trades

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:49

    Amateurish, due to being sideways. You could justify sicily out cos hes a flog, and grab a cash cow u missed.

FearTheBeard · 03/04/2018 at 19:54

So I was going Nank in for Kreuz. Hit reverse. Anyone got any info on the big man? Likely to get up? Seen it on Carlton site as someone said but wondering if anyone knows anything?

    Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 19:56

    Just wait for the lineups and trade if he isn't named then. Have a plan prepared for both scenarios.

    derek · 03/04/2018 at 20:00

    sounds like he will play.

    who is your R3?

      Fearthebears · 04/04/2018 at 06:41


BlueBaggerJosh · 03/04/2018 at 20:24

Will have to field Garlett for Sicily, should I just trade him to Curnow?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 03/04/2018 at 20:29

    Team for reference, 12.3k, 28 trades

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

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

Hogan or taranto? Who would you choose community

    ChewyOnYa · 03/04/2018 at 20:37

    not hogan, he cant do that each week and taranto is looking great

    johnno2908 · 03/04/2018 at 21:07

    Of the 2, Taranto for mine. Getting a lot of the footy, and I feel like he is a lot less likely to drop a steaming turd sub 40 score like a Hogan type will.

      Tim · 03/04/2018 at 22:25

      Hogan for sure

    Whatyasmokin · 04/04/2018 at 13:57

    Hogan. Hes been talked up all these years for a reason, he actually has talent, plus will be a POD.

CheekyNandos7 · 03/04/2018 at 20:36

Thoughts on going Naughton to Murphy leaving me with $156k in the bank? Going to have another look at O'Connor this week and if he gets another 60 will probably go Hunter Clark to him. Cheers

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/04/2018 at 20:46

    Big tick. Great cash making manoevre. Naughton may go up $20K at best, Murphy will make much more coin. Sit back and watch O'Connor this week before pulling the trigger on him.
    Cheers mate.

      CheekyNandos7 · 03/04/2018 at 20:51

      Thanks Tophawk. Silly pick in Clark but hopefully he hits his BE of 37 and goes up a tad which means I'll make (a little) more money on the Clark to O'Connor trade.

The Ranger · 03/04/2018 at 20:49

Been away for Easter and got back to find I've not had a great round again, that's two scores below 2200 for me.
Crouch is the big out for me this week and I started with a 5-0-3 structure in the mids so I feel I have to trade him.
Should I go down to Cogs?
Sideways to Oliver or Ablett?
Also considered Menegola to the mids via Higgins then trade out Menegola to another mid premo (or Cogs) and trade in Ryan for Venables in the fwd line.
This leaves me thin in the fwd line but enables me to keep Crouch.
Any other suggestions?

    johnno2908 · 03/04/2018 at 21:15

    Oliver will be a top 5 mid, and a massive POD. Good choice.
    Coniglio is going well at the moment, and what does the extra cash allow you to do elsewhere?
    I would hate to trade Crouch to Ablett, only for him to get injured. Obviously anyone can get injured, but if history is anything to go by, Ablett will definitely miss games.

      The Ranger · 03/04/2018 at 22:03

      Yeah its probably between Cogs and Oliver.
      Very tempted to jump on Ryan too.
      There's not many fast moving cows this year and that score at the weekend is enticing.

        Defying_Madness · 03/04/2018 at 22:07

        Huh? There are a lot of fast moving cows this year

          The Ranger · 03/04/2018 at 22:41

          I guess it depends how many you call a lot.
          Doedee, Finlayson, Kelly, Holman, perhaps Ryan…the rest seem to be the 60-70 range point scorers which I put as averagely fast cows. Everyone is going to have that first four.
          Did I miss any?

      Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:01

      Good call Johnno – Oliver an excellent choice. Personally swayed here by Cogs' price – we may never see him this cheap again in SC while Oliver will drop to 580k or so at some stage.

      Cogs for mine

        The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 13:45

        Yeah the longer I look at it the more I'm liking the Cogs pick.
        Having had a pretty ordinary start the extra cash might give me a jump come fence painting time.

The Ranger · 03/04/2018 at 20:51

And who are we listing as Must Have rookies?
I think I have most of them but it's always good to see other peoples take on this.

    DacZawson · 04/04/2018 at 00:19

    Holman, Kelly, Doedee and Finlayson are probably the only MUST haves, but you can reason that you should trade for others

      The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 07:47

      Yeah that's all I can see Dac, the rest are a way behind except for Ryan maybe, and that's only on the back of one score.

Ahmad rubas · 03/04/2018 at 20:59

Which trade is better
1) Dow and Clark out for better midfield rookies
2) hibberd and Clark to defender rookie and dusty

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:13

    Rookies essential mate. Option one for mine

      Ahmad rubas · 04/04/2018 at 01:35

      Which midfield rookies should I bring in? Already have Kelly Holman brayshaw banfield. Should I get Barry?

Jim · 03/04/2018 at 21:04

Thoughts on going Brayshaw and Stephenson to Bonner and L Fogarty for quick cash gen?

    redherringfc · 03/04/2018 at 22:17

    seems a bit desperate.

    Nothing wrong with Brayshaw since you started the year with him.

    He’ll make around $100 to 150k as a guess, how much do you expect these other guys to make?

    How much can that trade make you later in the season?

    Haven’t paid attention to Stephenson, but guess similar story.

      redherringfc · 03/04/2018 at 22:25

      Just checked Stephenson’s scores and he seems ok.

      Sit back and let them fatten up.

BrownlowBoy · 03/04/2018 at 21:06

What are we doing with Michael Hibberd? Lack of kick ins seems to be hurting his score.

    David C · 04/04/2018 at 16:41

    I've been telling everybody to hold hold hold, and then today I traded him.

      Cam_H · 05/04/2018 at 10:25

      I'm in the same boat. "Don't sideways trade" I keep telling myself, but going to Kade Simpson is projected to yield +$100K if projections are anything to go by ($29K price difference, plus Simpson to go up $34K, and Hibberd to go down $38K), while Heath Shaw is a potential $150K gain by the same logic.

      I'm going to go with Kade Simpson on 'gut feel' that Michael Hibberd may take a few more weeks at best to find SC form, while Carlton have built a plan around Simpson since November and Docherty's ACL rupture. If Hibberd does bounce back to be a bankable 95+ points per round, hopefully he'll be more affordable and our rookies have fattened.

Nick · 03/04/2018 at 21:21

Crouch to Coniglio?
already got J.Kelly in the mid therefore would have 2 gws mids. thoughts?
would have 500+k in the bank to get danger in future weeks if i complete this trade

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:09

    Pull the trigger Nicko

    KSinny · 03/04/2018 at 23:10

    Go for it!

/// · 03/04/2018 at 21:33

So i have 367k in the bank and i need to get rid of crouch who do i get and also need to get rid of J. lever who should i bring in.

    BrownlowBoy · 03/04/2018 at 21:45

    Show your team.

      /// · 03/04/2018 at 21:53

      Mid: martin, kelly fyfe, crouch, cripps, kelly, holman, brayshaw
      defence; laird. hibberd, lever, murray, doedee, finlayson

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 21:53

    Couch to any of the big three and Lever to Bonner perhaps? Assuming you've got your rookies right

      /// · 03/04/2018 at 21:57


Steve · 03/04/2018 at 21:33

Still have 30 trades, really rate my team and havent got any pressing issues.
Im going for league glory this year, so is it really so bad to trade Sicily to Charlie Curnow to give me the best chance in winning the round?

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 21:54

    Yeah, probably Stevo. Would hold.

    That said, good stuff on being happy with your side! Wish I could say the same!

      Steve · 03/04/2018 at 22:00

      Cheers Patch! The podcast is getting better every week, keep up the good work!

    Lek and I spoke about him after we stopped recording. Diggiry damn he could fill that void of significance. Take a huge set of gonads though

Bob · 03/04/2018 at 22:29

I'm really considering the risk of going Hunter clark to Fisher via garlett dpp thoughts?

DARREN GASPER · 03/04/2018 at 22:41

Jaeger Yay Or Nay?

    Patch · 03/04/2018 at 23:02

    Lower priority to fix for mine. Make sure your rooks are good before you jump to ditch him.

    Will probably improve as well. However if you can turn him to Coniglio do so!

KSinny · 03/04/2018 at 23:29

Tbh i think holding Hibberd is a risk.. he isn't taking kick ins which seems to be affecting his score badly as well as Lewis and Lever both in the backline now. Personally im trading him to Simmo before his price skyrockets.

    Bottom · 04/04/2018 at 00:24

    Thinking the same thing. My only problem is Zac Langdons injury. I'd prefer not to make 2 trades early. What is a better priority, Hibberd to a high performing simpson or an injured langdon to another rookie. I already have venables, ryan, fritsch and garlett (mid) so there isn't many rookie options worth trading in for.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 09:19

      Exactly what I have been doing the maths on.

      Trade Langdon to Ryan, get a good price rise over next 2 or 3 weeks then down grade Ryan to a bubble boy……. like Langdon!!

      At the end of that, 2 trades gone, exact same team, but have some cash in the bank…. maybe $200k if Ryan has another decent game.

      Is $200k worth two trades?

      Maybe I’d do it for $300k, but that will require Ryan knocking out another 100pts in the next few weeks.

      It’s annoying GWS have those early games not able to loophole him.

Sean · 04/04/2018 at 05:01

Does anyone have a PDF copy of Jock's magazine from a few years ago? I purchased the pdf but the hard drive it was on has crashed. Any help is appreciated.

What_Bear · 04/04/2018 at 06:53

Hi Guys,

I need some advice on my team.

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (Naughton, O'Conner)
Mid: Danger, Martin, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Barry)
RUCKS: Gawn, Nank (olanga)
FWD: Heeney, Greene, Billings, Sicily, Lobb, Ryan (Venables, Fritch)
$166/k and 30 trades

Trade 1. Naughton down to Murphy
Trade 2. Lobb to Keeper forward. Buddy? or McLean/Smith or hold (think Lobb was a bad pick)

Thanks in advance for any replies

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 09:09

    Lobb is Clear #1 ruck in a very good team. He had no pre-season and it showed in second half against Collingwood.

    97 first week against a poor ruck.

    He will improve and has Sinclair this week so should do ok.

    He is in 2% of teams. If he comes good you are way head.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 09:11

      If you were to trade to a buddy or any other keeper, you need to at least wait until their price falls. It always does.

      What_Bear · 04/04/2018 at 14:51

      Thanks. Good advice as always. May go Naughton to Bonner instead, or have 30 trades next week

Billy Brainless · 04/04/2018 at 07:28

Hey please select what option is best – thanks

Forward line – Heeney, Petracca, Sicily, Fritsch, Ryan, Venables … Garlett, Rayner.
244k in the bank.
202k (Rayner OUT!!!)

Option 1 – D.Smith 439k (BE 55)
Option 2 – Z.Fisher 263k (BE -48)
Option 3 – A.Christensen 267k (BE -10)

Is D.Smith a top 6/10 forward – predicted average for the season?
Z.Fisher is now or never, can he average decent? until upgraded (100k+ cash cow) and the 183k in the bank without Smith could be spent elsewhere.

    BVB21 · 04/04/2018 at 07:47

    Option 1

      Maverick_ · 04/04/2018 at 07:56

      Unsure about Fischer too early to tell. Would hate to see u trade from one spud to another burning 2 trades if he also flops. But if it pays off then hat off to u billy your a braver man than I. Christenson just makes me nervous an I won’t touch him not sure why just prefer to steer clear. But Smith is a keeper will go top 6-8 easy only using 1 trade but leaves nothin in the kitty. If your fine with that then option 1 imo

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 08:44

    Definitely Smith. Avg 97 off 2
    Surely premium forward

Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 07:33

What do you prefer, community? Zac Langdon or Aaron Naughton.

Langdon has solid Job security, but won’t be playing until R6 at least
Naughton has to last 10 weeks minimum in the bulldogs back line due to Morris’ injury

Langdon scores much higher and is much cheaper leading to more potential growth
Naughton scores low, gradually increasing in price, but also could cover for any donuts with 40 points instead of a trade

Langdon is potentially a downgrade target, bring him in for a Garlett, Barry, Murphy or Ryan when he comes back. He can’t be used as a loophole due to all his games being early Saturday or Friday
Naughton will earn cash now, around 50k by Langdon’s return

Thoughts community, considering both are benched, or should I remove both

    StevoRivo · 04/04/2018 at 08:00

    Tough one Tryud, as I also have both on the bench. While I’m inclined to hold, I have Sicily out this week. That means I am considering Naughton to Bonner. I plan to keep Langdon on the bench. I’m hoping Keefe takes Langdon’s place with his injury, generates some cash while sitting at F7, and can act as swing cover for the loose cannon Sicily who warms the D8 seat this week.

      Maverick_ · 04/04/2018 at 08:07

      I have both and will hold them.
      Naughton is a slow burn but he will play his JS looks rock solid till the byes & I have all the ‘must haves’
      ZGL also in favour with the gws coach’s works hard and looks good out there. So He will walk back in the side in 4 weeks. There is no other fwd rookie screaming pick me so I’ll hold n wait patiently. I always run out of trades come finals. Not this year hopefully

        StevoRivo · 04/04/2018 at 08:19

        Naughton to Bonner not critical as it’s a 50/50 call. Will wait to see if any more injuries from the week as I am hearing Devon Smith is in doubt?

          INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 08:39

          Dev smith in doubt. Really. That would be a disaster. Already have Sicily & ZGL to deal with

            Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 08:43

            He got a scan but not because he was injured. It’s just to make sure he’s fine

              INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 08:55

              No mention of him on the clubs injury report

                Derek · 04/04/2018 at 09:00

                I know Fritsch was injured on weekend and is in a bit of doubt for this week. Nothing about Devon.

    CheekyNandos7 · 04/04/2018 at 08:23

    Im thinking of going Naughton to Murphy and Langdon to Ryan. Leaves me with $150k in the bank and some faster money making options in my team. Will probably bring Langdon back in when he returns from injury.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 09:03

      I don’t have Ryan, so Langdon to Ryan for some quick cash is tempting.

      I don’t think Higgins is far away from playing, so need to be able to downgrade a rookie when he is on bubble

Weirdo · 04/04/2018 at 07:35

Is it worth sideways trading Dahl to McLean???
Fwd line is billings, Dahl, mundy, smith, Fritsch, garlett, Ryan, Langdon

    Weirdo · 04/04/2018 at 14:29

    No takers

    BVB21 · 04/04/2018 at 14:51

    I think it’s a good trade.

    Lots of people also going Taranto and Fisher but I think
    Maclean is much better choice

    Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:47

    Too sideways imo but in saying that I have McLean and he will get plenty of midfield time with Libba out.

TommyC99 · 04/04/2018 at 09:00

Is it worth trading keeffe – Murphy? Worried that Murphy’s JS is shaky but in saying that, keeffe isn’t playing anyway. I’m planning on flicking mills so this trade goes ne the required cash, But doing this trade means I lose the link with Sicily in the fwds. Thoughts guys?

Jordan · 04/04/2018 at 09:01

I’m very stuck here… I need to downgrade Rayner to a 117-130k rookie.
Should I go with waterman, Gowers, Venables, or even Mark o’connor?

I’m liking Gowers and waterman out of those 4 but I’m honestly not confident with picking any of them!!

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 10:18

    there was some talk about waterman making way for Kennedy when he comes back.

shemmistwarehouse · 04/04/2018 at 09:10

i never trade premo’s out this early but hibberd-shaw and naughton-bonner looks very juicy

    INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 10:29

    I'm nervous about Hibberd as well Shem. If I can punt him this week I will

Cyriledagain · 04/04/2018 at 10:36

Not sure if I should hold M Crouch – 3 weeks on the sidelines.
I have Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio and all rookies. $257k
Thoughts appreciated.

MRmoMAN · 04/04/2018 at 11:28

In my opinion hibberd has to go… It's obvious he has had a role change with the limited kick ins he's had unlike previous years which would obviously increases his scoring by a fair bit. With the dees off to a good start this year i seriously dont see anything changing either? theres no need too. Lewis is there VC, and IMO will continue to be the 'leader' down back.

at 545k i can only see him avg 85 max, and at 100k cheaper i like the look off both ryan, hurn and shaw..

Seriously think if you have an underperforming midpricer for example JOM its worth downgrading to either one of the 3, and upgrading that midpricer to an uber premium.

Is it worth trading a midpricer to a midpricer like coniglio? personally i think thats just a waste of two trades. do you want him in your final 8 mids? Dont think he will keep up his current form however do see him avg 105 from here out.

The real Q is shaw hurn or ryan? would love your opinions,

Cheers MO

Jordan · 04/04/2018 at 11:32

Thought on English from the doggies?
Will he make enough cash?

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 15:48

    If you have him , keep him.

    Trengove out for 3 weeks. Roughead concussed. He should play a few more games.

Jay · 04/04/2018 at 12:29

Matt Crouch out for 3, so have to trade

left field trade: Matt Crouch -> Zac Fisher (via Garlett DPP) – will put Holman on field

Midfield will be: Martin, Mitchell, J. Kelly, Cripps, Gaff, Coniglio, T. Kelly and Holman (Garlett, Fogarty, Barry)

Simo · 04/04/2018 at 12:46

I have enough coin to trade Fyfe to Dusty. Do it?


    Ja191 · 04/04/2018 at 12:55


    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 14:42

    great idea. then next week you can trade Dusty back to fyfe

BrownlowBoy · 04/04/2018 at 13:10

Currently in unfamiliar territory here.

30 trades left and I have no reason to use any of them. Sicily misses a week, Hibberd underperforming, Naughton underperforming.
I have all the main rookies – don't have either Fogarty but have the good ones.

Is anyone else still holding?

    Crowboy94 · 04/04/2018 at 14:00

    I'm probably going to Hold. In a similar position to You, just have Lambert underperforming also. But his work rate has been elite, so I'm thinking his scoring will come.

      Derek · 04/04/2018 at 14:42

      Caddy is out this week. Lambert might get a better score. i agree his running is elite

      Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 15:10

      But it was better last year.

    INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 14:08

    Willing to put up with Sicily for a week. But looking to made a move on Hibberd. Can't ignore the role Simmo is playing

      BrownlowBoy · 04/04/2018 at 14:43

      Don't usually like sideways trades of premiums especially when they are not injured but Hibberd trades is worth some thinking.

        INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 14:52

        Losing the kick in duties is really impacting his output. Simmo taking plenty

          BrownlowBoy · 04/04/2018 at 14:58

          Lewis should just retire he's a fossil.

            INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 15:44

            Might take my crow bar down to Gochs's paddock & break his leg

    The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 16:52

    NIce position to be in BB! I'd hold if I was you.
    I've got Crouch out, Langdon out, Kreuzer tbc, Menegola stinking it up and Naughton giving me the irrits cos I should have stuck with O'Connor.
    Prob gonna move on Crouch and Langdon providing Kreuzer gets up.
    Tempted to hold Langdon and dump Menegola tho…

steve · 04/04/2018 at 14:15

Trying to decide between Fogarty or O'Connor , both Geelong.

Who has the best JS, are they worth trading in for a rookie not playing at this point? (Shipley)

A word of advice would be appreciated.

    Derek · 04/04/2018 at 14:40

    i like O'Conner as a player. He has only played one game so you can wait a week on him. He also has DPP

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:13

    Fogarty seems to have better JS as O'Connor was a late-in. Fogarty also has more potential growth as a bench rookie

Gsal · 04/04/2018 at 14:17

Hi community,

Question. Should I trade out Crouch to Dusty and keep Naughton but trade out Rayner to Bonner?

Then my team will look like this
Simpson, Hurley, Laird, Bonner, Finlayson,Doedee (Naughton, Murray)
Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Coniglio, JOM, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett)
Gawn, NicNat (Cameron)
Heaney, Dahlhaus, Smith, Sicily, Christensen, Fritsch (Venables, ZGL)

Thanks Guys

    Finnius · 04/04/2018 at 15:00

    great idea.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:10


    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:12

    My question is: How did you get Rayner into defence without trading a Backman or using a DPP swing

      Gsal · 04/04/2018 at 17:32

      Hey man,

      I traded out crouch first to dusty then rayner to trade flicked garlett to mids from fwd then flicked Sicily to fwd from def which then I was able to bring in bonner πŸ‘Œ

Dave · 04/04/2018 at 14:31

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

Billings,Mclean, Smith, Lambert, Christensen, Fritsch (Ryan,ZGL)

Need help going to get rid of lambert should I straight swap for Heeney or Coniglio via Garlett d/p

    Holty · 04/04/2018 at 15:06

    How does ur midfield and forward line look? If u went Coniglio, how many rookies will you need to play onfield in the forward line?

      Dave · 04/04/2018 at 15:15

      This is my current set up

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

      Billings,Mclean, Smith, Lambert, Christensen, Fritsch (Ryan,ZGL)

        Holty · 04/04/2018 at 16:01

        Id go Coniglio then. You will have to field 2 forward rookies which isnt ideal but at least u can remove Barry from the midfield.

          Dava · 04/04/2018 at 17:54

          brayshaw will be on field not Barry

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:09

    Go with Heeney, You don't have enough back-up to go to a midfield premium and it's best if you don't over-stack the midfield

      Dave · 04/04/2018 at 18:01

      I was leaning that way but I have 100k in the bank if I get coniglio instead heeney for a future up in the fwd line

        Dave · 04/04/2018 at 18:02

        I was leaning that way but I will have 100k in the bank if I get coniglio instead heeney for a future up in the fwd line

    redherringfc · 04/04/2018 at 17:48

    If you pick Coniglio is it with the aim that he stays until the end of the season? Do you see him as a top 8 midfield player come years end?

    Coniglio will probably get you more points over a few rounds, but picture your end of year team. Pretty sure you have Heeney in it. Is Coniglio in that picture?

      Dave · 04/04/2018 at 18:19

      Good point heeney should be top 6, coniglio I didt thick he will be top 8 , what do u thick he can avg coniglio to be a keeper

        redherringfc · 04/04/2018 at 19:06

        His numbers look like he maybe able to keep up at 110 to 120, if you look at his previous years. He was definitely on an upward trend up to 2016, when he averaged over 100. Two long breaks last year (injuries, i’m pretty sure).

        If he can average 110+ and play every game then he is amazing value.

        I missed that boat and have no intention of bringing him in.

Help me · 04/04/2018 at 14:45

Started bell instant regret, but considering the following trades this week,
Bell to Ryan allowing me to upgrade naughton to bonnar


    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:08

    Bang! Bang!

Banga · 04/04/2018 at 14:50

Hey guys, I’m new to SuperCoach and would love your help. Hold or trade Mills? In terms of rookies, The only rookies I don’t have are Ryan or Murphy. The problematic rookies I have are naughton, Dow and ZGL. I also have Sicily but will be holding him. What should I do. Only got 16k in the bank

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:08

    I'd trade Dow first. Try to get in all you can of:
    Def: Doedee, Finlayson
    Mid, Finlayson, Tim Kelly, Holman, Barry, Garlett, Banfield
    Ruck: English
    Fwd: English, Fritsch, Ryan, Garlett, Venables

      Banga · 04/04/2018 at 17:54

      Thanks for the reply mate! Would you hold or trade Mills? Mills – Ryan looking real good but not sure if it’s a priority

        Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 19:09

        Hold this week, if he scores less than 85 then trade

Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 15:09

Selwood, Simpson or Cripps?
I’m asking about bye structure, average and supercoach relevance

ProTravo · 04/04/2018 at 15:11

Thinking I might bite the bullet and give Hibberd the flick. Many probably in the same boat . . .
Not convinced he can maintain his 'premo' status and thinking he may be the 2018 Heath Shaw and just lose us cash.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:54

    A change of role has caused him this. For his old role back, Lewis must be dropped and Vince must return to the midfield

J.Bronson · 04/04/2018 at 15:14

Trading Kreuzer and Caddy.
–> Naitanui and Toby Greene, or Goldstein and Robbie Gray?

Or, someone else…?


    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:53

    If Kreuzer plays, hold! He will be a top 3 ruck, just watch him play

      J.Bronson · 05/04/2018 at 12:12

      I know he will be top 3….. IF he plays. Groin injury…. just seems dodgy

Ian · 04/04/2018 at 15:17

Hi Community
I’ve got Ablett and the required kitty to trade to Danger. Just after a reality check? I’m thinking of waiting until Ablett misses a game before pulling the trigger.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:45

    Ablett's BE is at 111, which is do-able, but just trade him

hedski · 04/04/2018 at 15:35

Looks like Tobias is in some doubt for this weekend as well. Crap.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:43

    This is why the flog rule applies…..

      hedski · 04/04/2018 at 17:02

      He scored 130 odd in his first game Ty and I don't think hammy tightness is an act of floggery.
      Having said that I did double up on the flog factor this year and have Sicily out this week so I guess i had it coming!

        pod · 04/04/2018 at 17:04

        double flog.. definitely had it coming

        The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 17:23

        Fun start to the season then Hedski?!

          hedski · 04/04/2018 at 17:46

          Not ideal mate, Kreuzer, Crouch, Greene, Sicily and ZGL causing me a few headaches.
          Gotta love this caper.

            The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 17:52

            Yeah I got three of those.
            And Menegola.

    Skindog · 04/04/2018 at 17:21

    Sure is Hedski, with only Garlett and Fritch on the pine im really thinking of making the trade if hes going to be out longer,,,

      Skindog · 04/04/2018 at 17:22

      Also with a decent ranking id love the points???

        hedski · 04/04/2018 at 17:48

        I'll have to hold and reassess, got a lot on my plate.

          Skindog · 05/04/2018 at 09:34

          I see that mate , damn, what a start,

Danny · 04/04/2018 at 16:09

Is bonner a must have?! I can't decide whether to pick him or not

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:43

    I'm not sure myself… I'm hoping he is better than English, who is my alternative – and will be benched anyway-, but you shouldn't get him in no matter what. His scoring will vary

    pod · 04/04/2018 at 16:52

    His probably not a must have yet but if already have him you'd be stoked. Only 2 games gone avg 97.5 so far and had 1 game against the Swans. If he reaches his 86 b/e this week he'll go up $50k. I'm betting he'll go above his b/e against the Lions in Adelaide. He then plays Bombers at Etihad, Cats in Adelaide and then Norf at Etihad. Big chance of decent scores IF they shut the fu##in roof.

      pod · 04/04/2018 at 16:53

      * b/e -44, projection 86

        Derek · 04/04/2018 at 18:14

        If the next three weeks he scores 72 after round 5 his price would increased by $110k and his BE would be sitting at 78.

        Compare that to Naughton scoring 50’s in the next 3 weeks. He will increase $65k and BE of about 44.

Defying_Madness · 04/04/2018 at 16:17

If I have to field either Murphy or Naughton at D6 should I still keep Naughton as others have recommended or move him on to Bonner.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:56

    Move him on. He'll generate not enough cash, not enough quickly. I'm hoping he won't drop in price for 4 weeks but i doubt it

      Defying_Madness · 04/04/2018 at 18:23

      I think I might make the trade

BlueBaggerJosh · 04/04/2018 at 16:25

Option 1-Sicily to Curnow (will have to field Garlett otherwise)
Option 2- Hibberd to Shaw and Naughton to Bonner
Option 3-Hold

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:36

    Unless you mean Ed Curnow, hold

      BlueBaggerJosh · 04/04/2018 at 20:08

      Na the 'superstar' Curnow πŸ˜‰

JugHead · 04/04/2018 at 16:26

Copied here from another thread…

Lots will disagree, but I dont like starting the season with a non playing (no cash generation) rookie for loopholing. The SC gods normally provide me with a non playing loopholer fairly quickly into the season. Usually one of my premo mids dammit. Perfect job for Danger in rd1. Now….

One of the better teams for supplying a loopholer is WCE with a fair few late games. I already have Ryan. Kennedy is due back in a couple of weeks. Any sense in getting Waterman or Venables as well (to replace Rayner who has to go), hopefully making a little bit of cash with them, then using them for loopholing when they get dropped to make way for Kennedy? The way I see it, one of these 3 WCE fwd rookies will make way for Kennedy, and if they don't, hopefully they are a slow burning moneymaker. With all that in mind….. is Rayner to Waterman a worthwhile trade? Or am I overthinking this ? ?

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 16:57

    What is the point of that money if you're just going to keep the player anyways

      JugHead · 04/04/2018 at 18:13

      I'll cull them at some point. The key thing is their value will go up a bit. Rayner's looks like dropping.

    INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 18:06

    Rayner to anyone is a good trade

Steeeve · 04/04/2018 at 16:43

I have Laird, Hibberd and Sicily in defence (then rookies).
Should I:
A) hold
B) hibberd to Bonner and D Fogarty to C Curnow
C) Sicily to Bonner and D fogarty to C Curnow

Can't see D Fog making much cash, can't rack up possies playing deep forward.

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:00

    Curnow plays similar to a key forward, so don't expect 100s every week.
    Hibberd has a role change but Sicily is just a flog, who will score what Hibberd scores in 5 rounds in 4. This round you just put a rookie in his place, who will make it worthwhile.

    So, either option B or A

      Steeeve · 04/04/2018 at 20:41

      Yeah i was really happy with sicily roubd one. Then flogged himself in no time. Will hold both he and hibberd i think. Bonner won't gain much cash scoring 75s.

juddy · 04/04/2018 at 16:54

lambert > taranto
lobb > ryan


either of them worth holding

    Tyruddanaut · 04/04/2018 at 17:06

    Lobb is going to start slowly, he's just adapting to his new role. And don't trade him this week either, against one of the 5 weaker ruckmen. And GWS plays two of these teams twice. Give him time and don't expect 100s

    Lambert to Taranto sounds good

      BVB21 · 04/04/2018 at 19:00

      Agree with tyru

Maverick_ · 04/04/2018 at 16:59

lobb to a taranto or L.Ryan worth some thought?
the latter would kickstart my dusty kitty nicely…
dunno why i selected lobb to begin with.

Ahmad rubas · 04/04/2018 at 17:07

Do either mark O'Connor or Ed Richards have any sort of job security?

    SuperCoach Roach · 04/04/2018 at 19:08

    Malcolm Turnbull has better job security than the 2 of them put together. Hope that answers your question (in all seriousness I don't even know who Ed Richards plays for)

      Ahmad rubas · 04/04/2018 at 19:55

      Ed Richards plays for the dogs. I didn't know who he was either until I was looking for 150k max defence rookies not named doedee Murray finlayson or Murphy haha

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 19:22

    Too early to tell at the moment Ahmad.

      Ahmad rubas · 04/04/2018 at 19:55

      Thanks for the reply perhaps have to find another way to get dusty in

Marty · 04/04/2018 at 17:18

Important decision week.

I feel Simpson will be one of the top defenders if not the best. You don't get him in this week he goes up significantly.

Question is:

Is it better to go Mills to Bonner and Crouch to Danger or Crouch to Cogs and Mills to Simpson.

I thought Mills would be given more midfield time but that's not happening. Danger has a breakeven of 181 so is it better to wait three or four weeks for a cow to fatten and go mooooooo, or grab him now. Structurally my team looks better with Simpson and Cogs in but I can never underestimate the Danger factor.

    redherringfc · 04/04/2018 at 18:07

    I’m sick of telling people to hold their trades, so I’ll go with a different approach.

    Trade. Both look like good options, but if you’re really worried about the $$, pick up cogs and bonner this week before they rise significantly. Then go after Danger and Simpson next week and the week after, if necessary.

      Marty · 04/04/2018 at 18:38

      Agree with people overtrading this week but Crouch needs to go given he is out for a month.

PuntRoadRoar · 04/04/2018 at 17:43

Flog #1: Toby Greene, Flog #2: James Sicily, Flog #3: Me for picking them both…what was I thinking.
Only way it could get worse is if I wake up on Monday morning and find I traded in Jake Stringer in my sleep.

    INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 18:09

    Adrian Dodoro might be feeling the same way about Stringer

      PuntRoadRoar · 05/04/2018 at 10:32

      Have heard that Dodoro may give up his job as list manager if he can achieve his other two objectives of getting Brendan Fevola and Warwick Capper into the Essendon forward line.

Crowboy94 · 04/04/2018 at 17:45

Thinking I'm going to trade Lambert to Tarranto.

Do people think Tarranto will average over 90? Just looked at his stats and they look fantastic!

    Doc_1 · 04/04/2018 at 17:53

    Thinking of the same crowboy.
    With Scully going down he should get a bit more mid time as well.

      Crowboy94 · 04/04/2018 at 17:57

      He has already been playing pure MID and that won't change. Id rather risk him then wait for Lambert to get his ass into gear haha.

      Now I just need a rookie to downgrade Clark to.

    INPieman · 04/04/2018 at 18:24

    There are currently 22 Fwd eligible players Av more than 98. The number of 2nd year players that have Av over 95 you can count on 2 hands & change. If you picking Taranto as a keeper the odds are heavily stacked against you. Stepping stone only trade. If he keeps it up for the year that's a massive bonus. But the odds are against it with so many other players performing it's ballsy

    The Ranger · 04/04/2018 at 18:46

    When's Hopper back?
    He'll take some of those inside points.

Sauce · 04/04/2018 at 17:47

Buddy or Walters

    Mike · 04/04/2018 at 19:20


SgtMarshallBB · 04/04/2018 at 18:05

Hey Community,
Now ive confronted an obstacle in my team and am struggling in the process of overcoming it. I have Beams at M7 at this point in time, and i am hesitant to sideways trade, these are my options:
1. Hold on to him and hope he offers some sort of premo value
2. Trade Beams down to Coniglio to make 100k so i have some extra $$$
3. Trade Beams to another big mid (keep in mind i only have 20k in the bank)

In need of some help!

    Beamo · 04/04/2018 at 18:16

    My predicament too. I like coniglio or a straight swap to a selwood or cripps. Was also considering Simpson via dpp.

Doc_1 · 04/04/2018 at 18:15

Lads, which option do people think is best:

1. Naughton-> Bonner
O’Meara -> fisher, macpherson or Christenson (and which one?)

2. O’Meara -> Taranto.

Need to sure up my forward line (have ahern as non playing loop) and now Langdon injured. Leaves Fritsch and Ryan at F5/6 for 4 weeks which I’m not loving.

    redherringfc · 04/04/2018 at 19:22

    O’meara had 27 touches in game 1, 14 contested. Better efficiency and he cracks 100. My guess is that game took it’s toll on him.

    What did expect from him? You took a risk at $315k. If he doesn’t get injured, at least for a while, he’ll do exactly what you could reasonably expect from him.

Marty · 04/04/2018 at 18:48

Comments on Barrass. I don't remember his name being discussed but 106.5 average makes me take notice

Holty · 04/04/2018 at 18:59

Menegola out
Curnow in.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/04/2018 at 19:15

    Bit of a sideways trade Holty. But Menegola has been absolutely putrid and will slump in price. If you have all the right rooks and have no other major issues in your team then perhaps consider. I have Hibberd, but I am not trading him to Simpson despite the obvious temptation. I want 30 trades in the bank after 3 rounds. Cheers mate.

      Holty · 04/04/2018 at 19:36

      Good point tophawk. Cheers mate. Although its early i think ive seen enough to suggest he has a different roll this year with Ablett and now Kelly in the side. I hardly saw him in the mids on the weekend.

    SCdonkey · 04/04/2018 at 19:45

    Tough one Holty, I had Menegola at the preseason.
    What worried me, how much time will he get through the mid with the likes of Danger, Gaz, Jelwood, Duncan and Scooter then comes TK the jet in the frame now.

Mike · 04/04/2018 at 19:19

I had Hannabery all last year and regreted it all year. Never came good . Should have traded him out early . I wont be making the same mistake ag ain with HIBBERD. Hibberd to Simpson . No regrets just relief

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 19:22

    Trust your gut feeling Mike.

    redherringfc · 04/04/2018 at 19:25

    I’m pretty sure Hanners was at 600k when I picked him up last year, so he must have done something at some point. He sure didn’t do anything after that.

      SCdonkey · 04/04/2018 at 19:27

      He quit drinking, that's what he done.

    ProTravo · 05/04/2018 at 08:44

    Is Simpson the right replacement?
    Everyone's jumping on because of his good start but can he back it up all season?

arz · 04/04/2018 at 19:55

Naughton to murphy
Bell to mclean
1 forward rookie of fristch or liam ryan
3 mid rookies – kelly holman brayshaw


Naughton to Murphy
Bell to cogz
2 forward rookies from fristch,ryan and garlett
Mid rookies: kelly holman (brayshaw on bench)

Currently leaning towards mclean as he is more chance of being a top 8 fwd than cogz a top 10mid

What do you guys think?

Reillz · 04/04/2018 at 19:59

Peoples thought on Robbie gray

    dontblushbaby · 04/04/2018 at 20:31

    Should be top 6 Fwd IMO, I'll be looking at getting him to my team after his Round 10 bye , but most others will also

Nick · 04/04/2018 at 20:11

Oliver/Fisher or Selwood/Taranto which duo would you take?

    BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 11:09

    Option 2 but would like to see your midfield. Better options than Selwood.

      JugHead · 05/04/2018 at 12:04

      Definitely option 2 for me. Not convinced Fisher will keep scoring like he has first 2 rounds.

Jess · 04/04/2018 at 20:13

Is Naughton to Christensen a decent trade?
Already have bonner.
This would allow me to swap sicily into defence and loophole murray/murphy this week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/04/2018 at 22:33

    Yes Jess! I like it. Christensen=Solid points and cash generation, and Naughton= Little points and little cash generation.

    Then when you are you are ready, you can kick Sicily the hell out of your side!

      Jess · 05/04/2018 at 21:08

      Cheers. Decided to punt on fisher. Minor breakout year for him with more midfield opportunity. Wish me luck tophawks πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 20:31


Anyone want an absolute 100% reason to trade this Muppet that can't even string a sentence together let alone answer a simple question have a listen to this podcast. Especially from 30min mark onwards. FLOG

    Paul · 04/04/2018 at 21:22

    I know a bloke that used to work at a footy club and he said that only about 4 or 5 players in the whole place could be more than a brickies labourer if they weren't footy players. Whats the point? Footy players are idiots, doesn't mean they're not good footy players.

      Sc_Wow · 04/04/2018 at 22:09

      Did you listen to it? Pretty much says he can’t help hitting blokes and doesn’t see it changing, getting suspended is just a thing that he can’t change in his eyes

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 22:37

    I won't pick that FLOG until he hasn't been suspended for 8 weeks…don't need dickheads letting us down.

      SC_Sixty6 · 04/04/2018 at 23:42

      Hope he doesn't play so I correct trade him. Greene and crouch are my only real concerns so team traveling nicely.

        Soothsayer · 05/04/2018 at 18:19

        Same here, crouch and Greene. “it’s just what I do”. I wonder if he’ll be playing this week, glad I don’t have Dahlhaus.

Paul · 04/04/2018 at 21:12

Out Weitering and Brayshaw, In Finlayson and Coniglio. Leaves me with Tom Bell still in my team though. Is he going to play this week? Or should I be getting rid of him ASAP?

    David C · 05/04/2018 at 06:47

    He won't be playing for a long time. Trade him.

PilMagnet · 04/04/2018 at 22:54

Tell me I am right community? Looking to corrective trade Savage to Simpson – sideways I know but going for points, good start with 2300+ and 2400+ so far.

    JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2018 at 22:58

    Wrong,what the hell for, Savage has scored 92&97 so far,find another way to get Simmo.

      PilMagnet · 04/04/2018 at 23:05

      I rate Savage but not sure he will have the stamina that we know Simpson has?

        Brian · 05/04/2018 at 16:57

        So why did you start with him

    Russty_ · 04/04/2018 at 23:09

    I think Savage is a spud waiting to happen so I wouldn't be against that, up to you if you think that is corrective or not, many guys will tell you no but I don't think Savage will maintain a good average this year. He's in a crap side, got hammered last week, and will probably continue to get hammered, that has to come into the equation.
    Up to you ultimately but I'm a Saints supporter and I never even considered putting Savage in my side.

      PilMagnet · 04/04/2018 at 23:18

      Simpson likely to go up in $ while I wait for "right time" to trade in – hence the correctiveness to my trade. I am pretty much convinced, just interested in feedback, appreciated.

        JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2018 at 23:31

        Hi PilMagnet,interested to know what you backline is,if Savage is a D3 or D4,I didn't pick him myself,thought about it,but in the end thought there were better players,but if I had picked him I wouldn't be rushing out to trade him,you must have some other pressing problem in your team,then again going on your scores so far maybe not.

          PilMagnet · 04/04/2018 at 23:44

          Sav is D3. Was looking at him as a POD to start with. Team is solid nothing really pressing, been lucky early. Hurl and laird make up d1 and 2 rookies there out. Just wasn't sold on Simpson prior to his good start, thought a young bloke would step up in defence at blues.

            JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2018 at 11:50

            Why not just keep Savage for now and have Simpson as a upgrade target,it's not as if Savage is under performing.I'm only using trades for 1 injures,2 a very bad mistake,like a premium player only getting under 80 scores,3 down & upgrading players.I guess you could say yours is a upgrade,but we are only two games in and there is nothing wrong with your scores,it just doesn't seem very pressing,it's not as if we are talking about Hibberd or Mills to Simpson.Your team will be better with Simpson no doubt and you will most probably go ahead with the trade,as it is your decision in the end,but that was my take on it.

Andrew · 04/04/2018 at 23:02

Hey guys after some advice. Really happy with my team. Only real issue is Beams. I dont have Ryan or Murphy but have all the other main rookies. Have 3 options for my trades this week and interested to hear thoughts.

A) Beams to Cripps & Zgl to ryan/keefe to murphy- Leaves me with round 185k

B) Beams to Ryan via dpp & Keefe to Simpson- Leaves me with 193k

C) Beams to Ryan & Keefe to Murphy- Leaves me with 607k

Leaning A however with b and c it only means playing Kelly in the mid which is fine with brayshaw and holman. I only have 2 premos in defence w bonner so Simmo would be playing instead of Murray. C is risky but allows me to have another look at players/take advantage of price drops and potentially go 2 up in one week.

Carlton888 · 04/04/2018 at 23:16

Mills to Simpson
Menegola to Toranto

Steve · 04/04/2018 at 23:24

I'm trading Hibberd out,
should i take Laird or Simpson?

Thank you

    PilMagnet · 04/04/2018 at 23:26

    Aim for both if you can?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 00:11

    You should probably have already started with Laird, but you didn't so now you need to get Laird, wait on Simpson cause he's very old for a Footy player and could crap his bowels at any moment., at least if you get Laird now, you might have a chance to still win a few Leagues.

Ken · 04/04/2018 at 23:54

How is Clayton Oliver with a tag on him..surely Jacobs goes onto him this week…how did he do in JLT when he versed north Melbourne?

    NoLanguage · 05/04/2018 at 01:08

    He'll struggle with Jacobs wearing him like a glove. I'd stay clear of the VC option

    deeman · 05/04/2018 at 02:21

    He performed just about as normal last year when tagged
    Also picked up 20 odd contested possies and 3 bronlow votes last year against north

pod · 05/04/2018 at 00:13

Look at Patty Dows supercoach description in Supercoach it says 'His coach won't be happy with his 77 touches' lLOL

ChewyOnYa · 05/04/2018 at 07:56

Is naughton to bonner worth it? My team has had no injuries (other than ZGL) and only other corrective trade I am considering is Hibberd to Simpson.

Do i pull the trigger?

    SC Blazers · 05/04/2018 at 12:02

    Definitely naughton must go

Doc_1 · 05/04/2018 at 11:48

Need to bring in some forward support.

What do people think of:
Hibberd -> Bonner (D3)
Ahern -> McLean (Pushes Dev Smith to F5).

Only other option I can come up with is Ahern to Christiansen or MacPherson. (+/- Hibberd -> Simpson).

HammerTime · 05/04/2018 at 12:15

Should i hold Caddy? The podcast suggests i should offload because of the suspension (harsh lol), but he has looked great kicking 3 goals in both rounds and plays mid type role for the tigers too. Only yielding two scores of 84, but with a small lift of efficiency they could easily have been 100s.

    Neverweaken · 05/04/2018 at 16:16

    i got rid of him. got caught last year. hes only ever gonna be an 80-90 player i think. should have learned last year.

    Brian · 05/04/2018 at 16:47

    Scores 3 goals and only 84 pts. He wont get 3 goals in every game. Then he scores 50.

    Swans2012 · 05/04/2018 at 16:51

    I've got the cash so I'm going to send him up to gray

Placey150 · 05/04/2018 at 12:24

How do you trade player that is a midfielder to a player from another position(eg. backman) ?

Placey150 · 05/04/2018 at 12:27

What should I do with Hibberd??

    MRmoMAN · 05/04/2018 at 12:40


    Fisherdann · 05/04/2018 at 12:58

    If you bothered to read previous posts you'd know. Hold. He is a premium.

      Caaattttyyyy · 06/04/2018 at 18:04

      reow, saucer of milk

Ethan · 05/04/2018 at 13:47

Thoughts on trading Will Brodie for Stephenson from the pies? Brodie is my only non playing rookie but has been named emery twice (have olango as loophole option)

    Brian · 05/04/2018 at 16:53

    You’ll probably end up trading back in Brodie later so I would hold. Unless you need to get in one of the top cash cows. Stephenson is not that imo. Even waiting another week will open up the possibility of getting in o Conner who has a very handy dpp

Eric · 05/04/2018 at 14:15

Hey everyone just need so help if anyone can provide it.

I can bring in either Simpson and C. Curnow for Hibberd and L. Hunter

Or Dangerfield and Liam Ryan

Or Simpson and Liam Ryan and bank the money for Dangerfield

I have $213,400 in the kitty as I was always going to bring in Dangerfield for Ablett but the great master is doing too well to let him go lol.

If I Simpson and Curnow option.. I’ll only have 10k left. So no Dangerfield unless his price drops???

    Eric · 05/04/2018 at 14:21

    sorry I meant Hunter Clark not L. Hunter.

BockChoy · 05/04/2018 at 14:28

Higgins will debut for the Tigers!

BigM · 05/04/2018 at 14:44

Couple of risky trades am thinking of – any thoughts
Hibberd to Simpson in the backline – hibberd has me worried with possible role change
Dahlhous to Taranto in the forward – something just doesn't look right with the Hous

BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 14:48

So Taranto scores well against western bulldogs and Collingwood and everyone is bringing him in.

My tip is that it will end in tears

    Holty · 05/04/2018 at 15:23

    I might be taking the punt with him in replace of Menegola. He is spending time in the mids, with Scully injured should spend more time there. He tackles well and is a contested ball winner. May not be that top 10 forward but he cant be worse than Menegola right now.

      BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 16:05

      Do you have Maclean, Devon Smith or Petracca.

      Much better choices imo

        Holty · 05/04/2018 at 16:29

        I dont have any of them. Petracca is a no from me but Mclean and Smith are tempting. Curnow as well im weighing up.

          Swans2012 · 05/04/2018 at 16:52


            Holty · 05/04/2018 at 18:09

            Have gray. As well as Heeney Roughead and Lobb

              BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 21:08

              Taranto named in forward pocket.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 18:02

    Collingwood weren't too bad last week, Taranto could end up a solid player, some guys improve into much better players..happens all the time.

Ash · 05/04/2018 at 15:07

Thoughts appreciated:

1. Crouch – Oliver or
2. Crouch – Coniglio and Naughton or Keefe – Simpson


    HammerTime · 06/04/2018 at 00:31


Neverweaken · 05/04/2018 at 17:01

Westhoff or Taranto or neither?

Tim · 05/04/2018 at 17:07

Hi everyone, I need to decide on whether to trade Crouch for Oliver or Coniglio.

Current midfield: Dangerfield, Martin, T.Mitchell, J.Kelly, M.Crouch, Fyfe, Holman, T.Kelly

On one hand, Coniglio could re-injure himself or fizzle out but, on the other hand, Oliver isn't exactly a steadfast locked premium option and could have a down year.

    Swans2012 · 05/04/2018 at 17:52

    Coniglio for me and bank the cash

      Tim · 05/04/2018 at 18:34

      That's what I'm leaning towards, too. Thanks for the response!

    BVB21 · 05/04/2018 at 19:24

    Damn that’s a good midfield!!!

      Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2018 at 12:46

      Would love to see the rest of the team… plenty of cash spent there

        Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:42

        If you want to be competitive its pretty essential to have the 3 best players in the game. My mid has danger martin rich oliver fyfe and cogs, the great defensive rookies allowed this to be possible this year

    Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 20:17

    Get in Oliver, you will need him in your team eventually as he will be in the top bracket of midfielders

      Jess · 05/04/2018 at 21:11

      Expecting coniglio to have a few down weeks of 70-80 odd. Also expecting oliver to have a second break out into dusty/danger/titch territory. Wish i had him

TOPHAWK1 · 05/04/2018 at 18:37

O'Shea ommitted
Hunter Clark ommitted
D'arcy Fogarty ommitted.
David Mirra namedon extended bench.
Braiden Ainsworth named on extended bench.
Jack Higgins named.
Nicholas Coffield named.
Ryan Garthwaite named on extended bench.

Plenty of new rooks coming through!

Dodged 3 bullets with those 3 ommitted. Dont own any of them. No trades this week. Happy days!

Soothsayer · 05/04/2018 at 18:56


Ryan · 05/04/2018 at 19:04

Trade Crouch to Oliver?


Trade H. Clark to O’ Connor and trade Crouch to Titchell?

    Ja191 · 05/04/2018 at 19:15

    i'd be trading to titch/danger/dusty before you even think of anyone else

    Soothsayer · 05/04/2018 at 19:16

    Either is a good move. Both get an ultra premium. O’Conner not proven though. May require an additional trade later. Option 1 is simple and good.

Soothsayer · 05/04/2018 at 19:20

You need Titch at some stage though

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 20:17

    Who Does?

      Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 20:24


        Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 20:29

        True dat!

KingWinter7 · 05/04/2018 at 20:04

Crouch to Oliver or Cripps?
Already have the big 3

And is Bonner a must have to save me from loopholing Naughton and Murphy for D6 every week?
Would be trading either Naughton or Keefe to him

    Defying_Madness · 05/04/2018 at 20:14

    Oliver out of the first two.

    For Bonner I am in the exact situation with regards to loopholing Naughton and Keefe so I am making the trade. Will be moving on Naughton over Keefe as I have Sicily in the forward line and the DPP is valuable to my team. Will be using Keefe to loophole Murray and Murphy from now on instead. I wouldn't say making the trade is necessary though, there are risks for sure.

Parko82 · 05/04/2018 at 20:31

Considering trading Big sandii to Nic Nat, thoughts?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 21:16

    Yeah I guess, if you think Sandi's going downhill.

Thomas · 05/04/2018 at 20:38

With Greene, Giles-Langdon and Sicily out it seems I am copping a donut this week, anything i should do about it or just cop it?

    Jess · 05/04/2018 at 21:03

    Swap sicily into defence via a trade such as naughton to christenson or fisher. Fisher is named on the ball – im taking the punt. His price rise alone is worth it for me. Cheers

Thomas · 05/04/2018 at 21:17

Fischer or christensen who's safer to make money? Or should I trade for the more expensive taranto?

    Jess · 05/04/2018 at 21:28

    I've been stuggling with this, but have finally locked in fisher, who is currently named as a follower this week. Some big names have called him a future brownlow medallist. I cant see it yet, bit the signs are there for a breakout year. He could also score 40 for the next few weeks, but dam is he on the way to a nice price rise. Win win situation

      Borko · 05/04/2018 at 22:52

      Same dilemma here, and I have Lobb in the mix as well! I actually think Taranto is a bigger risk as you need to almost pick him as a keeper due to his higher price, whereas Fisher could be a quick cash grab (hopefully about $150k) and then upgrade him to a genuine keeper in a few weeks. He should be able to hold down a F5 position in the meantime and provide a 70-80 average.

      FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 10:44

      Was going with same issue. Decided to run the same way.

LUKE · 05/04/2018 at 21:56

Call me Cupid. Geelong have named 3 new players. With T KELLY ON THE EXTENDED BENCH. Now only reason for this Tim Kelly might have a niggle from last week's game. Watch this space

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 23:16

    What niggle do you think he has Luke?…didn't see him get any injuries last week, can see him playing this week…seems like a bit of a false alarm.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 09:20

    Last week he was one or two players off a Brownlow vote! He's not going to get dropped

LUKE · 05/04/2018 at 22:13

Also Tiger's. This week. BRANDON ELLIS AND JACK GRAHAM dropped

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:46

    Jack Graham hasn't been dropped, neither has Ellis, they're named on an undecided bench.

GrodieBrundy · 05/04/2018 at 22:17

Hey Community, my team's below and I'd appreciate any feedback
Hurley, Laird, Saad,Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Coffield, Murphy)
Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Adams, Cripps, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Brodie, Barry)
Gawn, Nait (Cameron)
Buddy, Dahlhaus, Lobb, Christensen, Fritsch, Ryan (Garlett, Giles-Langdon)

360k in the bank and 29 trades

Getting concerned with Adams and Dahlhaus.
1) Trade Adams to Gablett/someone else
2)Dahlhaus to Heeney

    Russty_ · 05/04/2018 at 22:38

    Hey Grodie, Adams doesn't seem to be doing much this year, maybe go Adams to Danger to strengthen your mids…and have a Perma-Captain. You could probably afford to wait another week on Dahl to see if he can turn things around..or Dahl to Heeney, if you could afford that?

      BrodieGrundy · 06/04/2018 at 03:22

      Thanks Russ. I have enough cash to get both Danger and Heeney.
      Thoughts on Ablett?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 09:19

    Adams has had a partial role change and you should trade him soon! I would trade him for a player like Macrae, who is fantastic at football and doesn't need his team to play well to reflect on his scoring. Other players like this are Dangerfield, Dusty, Titch, Selwood, Oliver and Gibbs.
    Ablett is a bit of an injury risk. You shouldn't expect him to play 20 games this year if you bring him in and must also bring in an M9 to compensate.

    I like the second trade

      GrodieBrundy · 06/04/2018 at 09:41

      Thanks mate

Is Don · 05/04/2018 at 22:32

My current SC team:

D – Yeo, Laird, Savage, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Naughton, Murphy)
M – Martin, Mitchell, Fyfe, Cripps, Coniglio, O'Meara, Kelly, Holman (Bradshaw, Banfield, Barry)
R – Gawn, Nic Nat (English)
F – Heeny, Billings, Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Fritsch (Garlett, G-Langdon)

2,340 average so far. 254k in the bank. I've already used 2 trades.

Thinking Naughton to Bonner and G-Langdon to Ryan. Leaves 163.5k.

Agreed, or should I hold off on the Naughton trade, with coffield and Cole playing first game this week?

PS, awesome community comments here. Just found this site and podcast today.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 09:13

    Calm down with your trades! you only have around 1 1/3 trades for each round and if you are trigger happy now, you might not have a complete team for the end of the season

Ahmad rubas · 05/04/2018 at 23:43

Hurley laird hibberd Bonner finlayson doedee (Murray emg Murphy)
Danger C Kelly Fyfe Cripps VC coniglio brayshaw Kelly Holman (Dow emg banfield Clark)
Gawn Goldstein (olango)
Heeney billings smith petracca Christensen Ryan (Fritsch emg Langdon)
30 trades 67k
problems: no dusty or titch underperforming hibberd, dow and Clark poor rookies
Ideal trade is downgrade hibberd and upgrade Clark to dusty but no worthy rookie to downgrade to.
Would the best move be trading Clark to Barry? I could also not use a trade if Dow performs really well Friday night

Stupid Coach · 05/04/2018 at 23:45

Evening Community. Trades I am considering this week are as follows:
1) McGrath to Bonner and Townsend to Tarranto/Christensen.
2) McGrath to Bonner and Merrett to Titch.
3) Townsend to Christensen and Naughton to Bonner
4) Naughton to L Murphy and Merett to titch.
5).Option 4 with Townsend to Christensen instead of Merret to Titch.
I am leaning towards Option 2 or 4 as I feel u really need to get titch into my team to have any chance of winning the cash league I am in but am aware that I will be trading out a premium who I may just waste another trade to bring him later down the track.

Any thoughts or advice much appreciated.

flex350 · 06/04/2018 at 06:43

Darcy Fogarty to Zac Fisher?

Gazza · 06/04/2018 at 06:47

Should I hold G-Langdon on bench or trade him to Billy Gowers

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 09:12

    Not Gowers. Do you have all of English, Ryan, Fritsch and Garlett?

Fearthebeard · 06/04/2018 at 07:54

Worth trashing Fisher in for a cash grab over Brayshaw?

    Fearthebeard · 06/04/2018 at 08:20

    Trading lol not trashing!

      BVB21 · 06/04/2018 at 11:04

      The idea πŸ’‘ is as bad as your spelling. Don’t do it!

Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 09:10

I am really considering Cam Ellis-Yolmen

• Averaged 87, including a 97 last week against Richmond
• Has an easy line-up before R7 when I am to trade him for Lance Franklin. This line-up consists of St. Kilda, Collingwood, Sydney, Suns, Carlton
• Matt and Brad Crouch's injury means more midfield time for him


    BVB21 · 06/04/2018 at 11:04

    It’s no worse then all this Bonner, Fisher hype and if it pays off you this one is a real POD

Ja191 · 06/04/2018 at 09:50

In a bit of a pickle, Sicily and greene out which means I have to field garlett, fritsch and Ryan. Not knowing how long Greene is out, would it be worth trading him to someone like a heeney/mclean?

    FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 10:49

    If I had Kruez out for a second week he was gone. I'd say the same for Greene. Do we know what it is holding him out?

FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 10:49

Can I please get a few opinions on Brayshaw – Fisher?

I know it's a bit of a side wards trade with Brayshaw having breakeven of -2. Though Fishers is -48 and with the fact that he is named as follower leads me to think he could quickly push 400k+. Earning far more then Brayshaw will. (Yes Brayshaw could have one big game and push his up) though it is also far more likely that Fisher will have a big game before Brayshaw off the bench?

I have no real trades to force so it's just a move to make some quick cash while potentially giving me better scoring for now?

Being stupid ? Some logic? Fisher worth the punt?

    BVB21 · 06/04/2018 at 11:02

    Don’t do it.

    If you can hold you should.

    Save the trades. I wish I didn’t have to trade but I have crouch and ZGL our for 4 weeks and Lambert out.

    Baz · 06/04/2018 at 13:12

    Brayshaw has started against two very good teams. I’d expect his scores to increase against weaker teams.

      FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 14:54

      Thank you for your words lads.

      Anyone else got any views?

jvm · 06/04/2018 at 12:02

Hibberd to shaw and Fogarty to Gray


Hibberd to Simpson and Fogarty to Taranto

flex350 · 06/04/2018 at 12:24

Darcy Fogarty going to struggle to get back in the team? I have cash so can trade him up to fisher / taranto.

CashCows · 06/04/2018 at 12:43

Hey Community,

Looking for some advice please..

Def: Laird, LRyan (Freo), Bonner, Finlayson, Dodo, Murray, Naughto, Coffield
Mid: Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Parker, Shiel, Kelly,Holman, Brayshaw, Dow,Banfield
Ruck: Gawn, Sandiballs. King
Fwd: Buddy, Wingard, Walters, D.Smith, Fritsch, LRyan, ZGL, Garlett


Happy that coffield has come into the saints line up this week as I was considering moving him on, but i think i will hold.
My other problem comes from Dow to Coniglio.. if i move him in, it means i need to find 220k which could come from either Shiel, Sandi or Wingard, given they probably my least performing. that said they all are relatively proven performers with perhaps wingard my only doubt.. but given they are playing Lions this week he could pull it back, although i believe he sustained a slight injury during last weeks game?

Or should i just STFU and hold….more i think about the more i should. the only one i am concerned about is Dow..should I correct or hold?

Whats everyone doing with ZGL?

    Terry · 06/04/2018 at 19:29

    i will read the other half tommorow

Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2018 at 12:49

So here’s the options… still stuck on this a tad

Crouch to Parker AND Naughton to Bonner OR
Crouch to Oliver and leave naughton as is

Advice much appreciated community

KKP · 06/04/2018 at 13:14

Would love to hear thoughts on trades I’m considering as I need to make up for lost ground already.

Mills to Simpson &

Zorko to Dusty

Appreciate any advice

Jabba07 · 06/04/2018 at 16:42

So I have no issues at the moment with my team, 31k in the bank. Ranked 3k.

My gun mids are Danger, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe. Cripps, Coniglio. Happy days, however to push for overall, should I be trading Kelly for Dusty given his + 50% ownership versus Kelly's 26%?

I'm aware this is usually a no go, however given price movements this is my last chance.

    Daniel Z · 07/04/2018 at 11:55

    You picked Kelly because you thought he'd be a top 10 mid, right? Has your opinion on that changed?
    If not, keep him. It sounds like you have FOMO but remember, you can't get them all (especially to start with).

Frank · 06/04/2018 at 17:05

Do I….

1. Trade out M.williams > R.Bonner
2. Trade out J.Daniher> T.Tarranto

Can’t decide which way to go, with the spare cash I am trading M.Crouch> D.Martin

Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Hey community,
Have Rayner (about to lose $) & Langdon (4+ weeks injury) and i need to replace them.
Already have Ryan & Fritsch as FWD rooks. Any suggestions??? Looking at flicking Rayner for Gowers or Waterman for a few weeks cash,, and holding Langdon for a week or 2 to have a look at the next debutants coming through….

    Flick Rayner and with the cash you get from that look to ZGL to Higgins

Ok is this just stupid mid price craziness…
Lambert and Rioli to Hogan and Acres, terrible trades?

It's that time of year again; giving up on my midpricer mistakes time !
I'm thinking of going Armitage to Ed Richards via Finnlayson.
Plus Lobb to Walters – I don't trust the knee and get Walters before he goes up more. Am I chasing points?
Appreciate a thumbs up if you like it, or tell me why if you don't.
