SuperCoach starts NOW, Community!

We spent many, many weeks ruining our eyesight looking at the unreasonably small video streams of JLT games, all for carefully crafting the “perfect” SuperCoach lineup for 2018. Now we’ve had two weeks to assess how they’ve performed. Smashed it out of the park first two weeks? Good stuff. Marvellous. Not gone so great? No reason to panic. SuperCoach is won by smart trading, rage trading, and stupid sideways moves. That’s where you’ll make up ground while the leaders bask in the glory of having the best team in April.

Now’s the time to be ruthless. It’s time to look your team square in eye and cut the dead weight. It’s time to get in the guys who will give you a solid foundation for the rest of the year.

Your first order of business this week is to get your rookies right, as discussed in the podcast they are four rookie kings you need. Doedee, Fin, Kelly, and Holman. The rest? Ehhh, there’s really no point chasing anyone else. You can then look at corrective trades and jumping on midpricers you may have missed. Always do your research here, Community. Ask yourself why this premium is suddenly sucking, and why is this mid pricer suddenly scoring like a premo?

Try as I might to bring you a happy positive panic room. Matt Crouch faces time on the sidelines and needs to go. Sicily will also miss a week through suspension. Though I’m inclined to hold him, you picked him knowing he was a flog and this flog will still make you cash. Reckon he’s on his last chance though. There’s also Zerrett and Hibberd worrying a few. Out of the two, I think Hibberd needs to go. His role is different, if you knew this two weeks ago you might have reconsidered paying top dollar for him. Though there’s some selection news this week that might just sway you towards keeping him.

There has been a TONNE of information on the site this week to help you navigate through this week. The podcast kicked off what is arguably the most important week in SuperCoach, Barron gave us the lowdown on the rookie situation and Sloane and Damo have combined once again to bring us captain choices and trade targets for this week.

THE NEWS

The Big Kruuuuuuuze is back and confirmed to lineup tomorrow night along with Matt Kennedy. Cam O’Shea has fallen victim to the last one in, first one out rule of thumb. Remember when the guy was all the rage preseason? The Pies regain Been Reid and Cox but lose Darcy Moore to injury.

Mitch Robinson is straight back in for the Lions after his one week holiday, I suspect he’ll be having many more throughout the year. The Dees have recalled Sam Frost which is interesting for Hibberd owners. Does this allow him to go back to being more a rebounder?


Pearce Hanley fused his shoulder with a fence that was meant to see him out until round 5-6, he’s back for the suspended Jack Bowes.

An injured Bradley Hill makes way for Freo in their only change. The Giants will replace Tom Scully with Jacob Hopper, while ZGL is out with a busted hand. Toby Greene must have a bloody tight hammy, he hasn’t been named.

The Saints have slammed the panic button and will trust Rowan Marshall to go against Sam Jacobs on Saturday night. Good luck buddy. Richo has also handed a debut to Nick Coffield. Hunter Clark will remain on the bubble for at least another week. Jack Steele and Koby Stevens have been dropped. For the Crows, Darcy Fogarty is goneski for Tom Lynch, and Richard Douglas is handy replacement for the injured Matt Crouch.

On Sunday, the Tigers and the Hawks will have a minimum of six changes between them. The SuperCoach relevant Sicily, Caddy, and Corey Ellis among them. My boy Jack Higgins is confirmed to debut and I can finally take Dion Prestia off the pine in my draft league. Dave Mirra has again been named on an extended bench for the Hawks. Of their 7 named ins, 6 are on the extended bench. Cheers, Clarko!

Neither of the Eagles or the Cats have confirmed outs as yet, but Tom Cole is a chance to debut. The Dogs have been dealt a blow to their already thin “ruck” department, losing Roughead and Trengove but regain Tom Boyd. Essendon haven’t confirmed any outs as yet, but their ins won’t lead you to a panic trade.

HOUSE OF EVIL

The breakeven section was going to be titled The Upside Down but I’ve had a brainwave. While thinking of good and bad things in Stranger Things I could use as categories, my brain started with the “that’s good / that’s bad” scene from The Simpsons and thus, the House of Evil was born.

As mentioned, Tim Kelly, Tom Doedee, Nick Holman, and Jeremy Finlayson all have breakevens of -120 or above! All absolute non-negotiable must haves this week.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-84 – Liam Ryan

-60 – Lachie Fogarty

-57 – Sam Murray

-56 – Jake Waterman

-52 – Lachlan Murphy

-51 – Bayley Fritsch

-48 – Zac Fisher

-44 – Riley Bonner

-42 – Bailey Banfield

-3 – Andrew Brayshaw

9 – LDU

25 – Aaron Naughton

33 – Paddy Dow

 

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

Zach Merrett – 241

Tom Rockliff – 239

Dayne Zorko – 221

Marc Murphy – 216

Taylor Adams – 202

Dayne Beams – 200

Brandon Ellis – 193

Sam Menegola – 194

Michael Hibberd – 175

Lachie Neale – 158

Nat Fyfe – 157

Josh Kelly – 146

 

As a final note, the man, the myth, the legend, Old Ocker has just casually dropped a stat lovers wet dream. His preseason spreadsheets were a thing of beauty and it’s here for you now to try and get your head around it.

 

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK


Jarrod Witts wasn’t awful last week so the lock gets dusted off for another week.

Patrick Dangerfield, Clayton Oliver, JPK, Nat Fyfe, and Tom Mitchell led the way in average contested possessions last year. Champion Data loves the guys that get the pill themselves over the uncontested variety, so it makes sense to target this stat when looking at guys to trade in.

Tom Mitchell is already averaging 25 a game, although at 653k he might be out of reach for some. Patrick Cripps is much more affordable at 537k and is averaging 22.5 a game. He was followed around by Holman on Saturday and the Blues lost by 5 goals, but he still scored a handy 115 on the back of 20 contested possessions.

I said in the preseason that it would be tough for Cripps to improve his already amazing stats even more, it’s a small sample size but this year he’s averaging +5 disposals, +9 contested possessions, and +3 clearances compared to last year. While lifting his TOG% from an already impressive 83.5% to 88%. All of that equals don’t listen to me!

I don’t expect him to continue racking up 20+ contested possessions a game (now that I’ve said this, expect 30 contested against the Pies…), his bye and relatively safe floor makes him a good inclusion into your midfield.

 

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR!

Last weeks lineup was hit hard by the early injury to Matt Crouch and Bachar Houli just straight up sucking. Just over 28k of our salary returned 82DS. Not great and the ideal lineup fell off the pace pretty quickly.

A common trap in Draftstars is feeling you need to spend all of your salary to get the most bang for your buck. This is definitely not the case, like SuperCoach pick a line up that you’re confident will score well, rather than stressing over the 1k you have left over.

The Battle of the Bridge is on Saturday night, this is the ideal lineup according to Fantasy Insider.

A midfield stack looks the way to go in this game. There are 4 players currently averaging over 110 – Coniglio, Whitfield, Kelly, and Parker, and a further 5 more averaging between 90 and 101 – Taranto, Heeney (both fwd eligible) Shiel, JPK, and Ward. Stuff as many of these guys into your lineup as you can and hope you hit the right combination.

Here’s my take on the game.

While Sinclair has had a good start to the year, slotting in Lobb as your ruck allows you to squeeze Tim Taranto (MID/FWD – $11,250) into your forwards. He’s been magnificent so far, scoring 91DS and 112DS, averaging 27.5 touches a game.

Finlayson is only 1 of 4 mids under 10k so I expect him to be highly owned, but it does mean both defensive options are a bit shit. Rampe and Grundy are averaging 45 and 37.5DS respectively so far this year. I hoped for Robbie Fox to keep his spot but he’s out and thrown my plans right out the window. Finlayson and Hopper are the only two mids under 10k for the clash, cheap plays need to be in the forward or defensive lines.

Maybe Will Hayward (FWD – $7,250) or Ollie Florent (FWD – $7,000) could be the way to go? Hayward has gone 79DS, 30DS, while Florent has gone 24DS, 83DS. Which one? Uhhhh, Florent… I think. Maybe?

Adam Tomlinson (DEF – $9,750) is the second best averaging defender behind Lloyd and costs 3k less. I’ll be trying to include him in my lineup.

Player to avoidBuddy is 16k and while his ceiling is yuuuuuuge, he can also tank hard. It also means putting your trust into a cheapie and there aren’t many to pick from on this slate.

A quick shoutout to Stacy of Brockers Boys for leading the way in the JR Community group with an overall ranking of 73! (Code: 505844. Jump in if you haven’t yet).

Best of luck this week, community!

    I'm 6 for 6 so far, just gotta hope the Hawks beat the Tigers and I'll be home and hosed ! 🙂

      Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 02:03

      I hope we beat the tigers as well. Good luck with your tips

Morzaaa · 06/04/2018 at 12:21

Whats the go with Duncan?? Cant seem to find any decent info on his hammy!!!

SC anaylsis pro · 06/04/2018 at 12:23

I just don't understand all the fuss of Tom Mitchell being a must have.
I mean he averaged 105 back in 2016, solid but doesn't scream pick me.
In 2017 if you takes out his 100's he only averaged 87. 87? Excuse me for wanting a but more from my premiums.
Even this year if you take out his best 2 scores he hasn't scored anything! Way to small sample to make any of the bold statements I'm hearing.
Remember, Sydney wouldn't have let him go if he was the Superman every one seems to be making him out to be. I'll pass thanks

    SC_Kev7 · 06/04/2018 at 13:05

    If you take out his 100's from 2017 that's taking out 20/22 games 😜

    A player hitting a 100 90% of time is pretty bloody handy!

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2018 at 13:42

      My mancrush for titch is well documented.
      Wrote an article on him presaeson.
      20/22 scores over 100 with a low of i think 87.

      Doesnt know how to have a bad game.
      Nearly 100 possessions in first two games with an uplift in kicks and goals in first two rounds.
      Leading everyone including dusty after two rounds for points scored so far.
      A lazy 50 ahead of clarey.

      Played for Sydney in 2016 where he shared points with the fab 4. Now numero uno.

      But i guess if you take all that away he is having an ordinary couple of years.
      In my eyes Titch is up to scratch.

    BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2018 at 13:25

    Yeah you make a good point. He's only been getting 50 touches. He really needs to convert those half centuries into big centuries to be worth selection.

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 13:34

    Before you start your SC research learn how to spell "analysis"

    uDonkey · 06/04/2018 at 13:47

    Yeah i want my premiums to have at least 70 possessions a game. 50 just doesn't cut it for me.

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:01

      It doesn’t matter how many touches they get; they will never be as good as Levi Casboult

    neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 13:57

    What a load of cods SC. He is challenging Martin and Danger and Oliver( must throw him in) for no.1 Cause it was written jockingly sic wasn't it

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:00

    If you took all the games that Zac Dawson scored over 100 in his average would be 105.
    (Sample size of one)

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:02

      I had Zaco every season tyvm

    SC analysis pro · 06/04/2018 at 14:10

    OMG. I seem to have hit a nerve with everybody's flavour of the month player
    By the way gentlemen, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Data Analysis. Just out of curiosity, what are your qualifications?

      Nuggety · 06/04/2018 at 14:32

      My qual is not being a flog..

        redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 19:30

        I actually have a masters in being a flog.

        I’ve just enrolled in a phd in Flogg-offery, going to do my thesis on the misinterpretation of sarcasm for fact amongst the supercoach community.

      Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:32

      I got what you were saying and thought it funny.

      It’s friday afternoon in the Panic Room, no time for funny stuff

      Its a Nerd · 06/04/2018 at 15:17

      well congratulations professor i'm sure that will be very useful topic at the dinner table

      The Ranger · 06/04/2018 at 15:31

      I wrote my PHD on machine learning but I'm still crap at supercoach.
      I've also got a First Aid certificate and recently did some Practical Portable Fire Extinguisher Training.

        gator59 · 06/04/2018 at 15:58

        I have a black belt in Karate and a gold medal in the commonwealth games, Well maybe not but will the Ettamogah Pub games do …Also have a motorbike. Truck and Forklift license… So am I over qualified or under

          neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 16:17

          One hardly needs a degree to succeed in supercoach just a good memory good research and LOADS of LUCK I would back that against jake's stupid degree

            Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:04

            Hold on, hold on….
            Loads of l….

      Degree in pure mathematics.

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:03

      I have a major in Commerce and an undergraduate degree in Data Analysis

      paul · 10/04/2018 at 05:06

      I am statistical Analysis And the probability of item Mitchell improving his average taken on samples from last year and this indicates to me you are wrong Sc analysis pro.His past years 2015/ 2916 averages of 104 at the Swans age 21 saw limited midfield time as the swans had an efficient engine room thus lack of hot spot time in the guts.This is the key element of change which your Bachelor Degree in Data analysis will not expose.In 2017 sample Mitchell jumped in average from a constant of 104 at the swans to a staggering 118.9. WHY. At the prime age of 24 for supercoach not an apprentice anymore he is now controlling the midfield for the Hawks.Time in the engine room plus experience increases the likelihood of sample Mitchell improving his average again this year.The equation difference you don't have with figures is HOT spot TIME, EXPERIENCE and CHANGE.

    hedski · 06/04/2018 at 15:57

    Close to, if not the funniest comment of the year. Love it.

      gator59 · 06/04/2018 at 16:29

      Cheers Hedski..

        hedski · 06/04/2018 at 17:03

        I meant Sc Anaylisis Pro's Gator, (yours was good too) 👍

          Browncow · 06/04/2018 at 20:02

          Definitely thread of the year so far. Love it.

    lachy · 06/04/2018 at 16:17

    You don't understand then. Mitchell only averaged 104 because Sydney hated the shit out of him. He would gather 60 disposals in the seconds every week.

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:25

    TRIGGERED! Nice job Anal pro!

    Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2018 at 22:38

    This has to be the funniest comment I’ve seen on this page lol degree in data analysis are you sure about that? This has to be a bit of fishing by the lad

      hedski · 06/04/2018 at 23:22

      And he caught a boat load.🐟🐟

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:00

    It’s great how everyone is falling for this obvious troll

Westy · 06/04/2018 at 12:27

Naughton and D Fogarty out
Murphy and Venables in for an extra 90k cash plus however much they go up.
28 trades left.
Sticking with Hibberd and Zorko for one more week just to see.

    Northerner · 07/04/2018 at 06:10

    Solid trades, squarely focused on cash generation. That’s absolutely number 1 objective this time of year all this premium swapping that goes on is not worth it.

Matt · 06/04/2018 at 12:29

Are these good trades?
ZGL – Ryan
Keeffe – Murphy

Or should I just hold?

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 13:27

    Looks like Ryan has good JS. Not sure about Murphy. One quiet game & he's likely to get dropped

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2018 at 13:51

      Got gallucci waiting in the wings.

      Matt · 06/04/2018 at 14:03

      Cheers for the response pieman! I agree on Murphy, do you reckon it would be a wasted trade then? Is it better to wait for a rookie with better JS?

        INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 14:36

        Probably only need 4-5 games from Murphy from here. But will he last that long. Brett Eddy scars are still fresh. Perhaps wait for something more sure

        David C · 06/04/2018 at 16:17

        See how Ed Richards goes in his second game for the doggies. Might have better JS the way the doggies are going.

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:29

    You might as well Keeffe isn't doing much

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:05

    Yes

Marcus · 06/04/2018 at 12:58

Sitting on both Greene and Sicily in my forward line
Worth punting 1 or safer just to hold?

TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2018 at 12:59

Option 1:
Fiorini > Gray (garlett DPP to mids, allows me to move Holman on to field over playing an extra FWD rookie)
Thomas > Ryan

Option 2:
Lambert > Gray/Heeney
Thomas > Ryan

Option 3:
Fiorini > Danger
Lambert > Ryan

    Jackel · 06/04/2018 at 13:09

    Option 2 with Gray easily. Very good double

      SC anaylsis pro · 06/04/2018 at 13:10

      Sorry just looked at Option 1 again, that's actually better cos you get Holman on ya field. Gray and Ryan in is very good either way

        TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2018 at 15:40

        I'm torn between 1 & 2. I think having Holman on the field outweighs having a combo of Thomas and Fiorini. Both have been punching out 70's with 20 touches a week. I think Fiorini has a higher ceiling

    Rhys · 06/04/2018 at 15:29

    If you trade out Fiorini he'll get 100 in his next game

    pod · 06/04/2018 at 17:59

    Option 3 for that bloke Danger he goes alright

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:06

    Option 2 with Heeney would be ideal.
    Heeney is going to be the top scoring non-key forward-forward in the game at the rate

Ahmad rubas · 06/04/2018 at 13:14

Def:
Hurley laird hibberd Bonner finlayson doedee (Murray emg Murphy)
Mid:
Danger C Kelly Fyfe Cripps VC coniglio brayshaw Kelly Holman (Dow emg banfield Clark)
Ruck:
Gawn Goldstein (olango)
Forwards:
Heeney billings smith petracca Christensen Ryan (Fritsch emg Langdon)
30 trades 67k
problems: no dusty or titch and underperforming hibberd also dow and Clark are poor rookies
Ideal trade is downgrade hibberd to a rookie and upgrade Clark to dusty but no worthy rookie to downgrade hibberd to.
Would the best move be trading Clark to Barry and save the other trade? I could also not use any trades if Dow performs really well Friday night and use Clark as a loophole

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:25

    Good luck getting dusty and Tich in

      Ahmad rubas · 08/04/2018 at 18:08

      Yeah I'll need it I've stuffed up by not starting them just have to hope they have bad games and drop in price which in titch is case is unlikely as he is a ton machine

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:08

    Hibberd is having a role change this week, hold
    I’d actually hold completely. You have a good team structure and shouldn’t get caught up in sideways trades

      Ahmad rubas · 08/04/2018 at 18:14

      Ended up using no trades. Not by choice though didn't have service to make any trades during Friday and Saturday. Annoyed I missed out on Barry first price rise so have to wait for another rookie I guess

James · 06/04/2018 at 13:19

Hold Bont or sideways to Cripps? Doesn't look like being a top 10 mid this year

    CJudd3Votes · 06/04/2018 at 14:16

    Bont no longer getting 20 points extra a game from being Champion Data's love child. Over rated in my opinion so it probably comes down to whether you think the dogs are going to keep getting trounced or turn it around as he doesnt strike me as the kind of guy that will score well in a losing side

Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:29

The big pig to ton up this week, if he lifts I'll be cracking 2500's

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 13:35

    Which pig?

      Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:37

      Piggy Hibberd

        uDonkey · 06/04/2018 at 13:40

        Liking his chance of lifting this week SC_Wow. He's back in my team

        INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 13:43

        I'm undecided still if I will get rid of him. I'll knock a few pints over thinking about it. If I do it's straight to Simmo

          Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:47

          I'm not 100% sold on anyone to replace him with, and feel he has to lift. Hopefully can get back to his old ways, just a couple 120s will boost him right back up there.

            Mike · 06/04/2018 at 15:20

            He's gone from my team… replaced by Simmo!

              neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 15:25

              you need both

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:06

    I admire you on the skys the limit pedestal you mount yourself onto Wow!

Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 13:32

What should i community? Only have 9,000

Matt Crouch to Clayton Oliver

OR

Naughton to M.O’Connor/Ed.Richards
Matt Crouch to Tom Mitchell (already have Dusty and danger)

OR

Matt Crouch to a Cripps ( around that value)
Naughton to Bonner.

OR

Hold both, start LDU on field for crouch for three weeks

Would love other suggestions or any advice on the above three trades. Thanks for reading 🙂 It’s Panic time!!!

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 13:41

    You'd want to get Tich in

    HammerTime · 06/04/2018 at 13:43

    get cripps and bonner

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 15:13

    Either one or two,both Oliver and Titch are going to be in the top five mids this year,you just have to decide which one you want first.

uDonkey · 06/04/2018 at 13:34

Thank goodness, reverse button still works. Welcome back to my team Hibbo. Pederson and Hunt being drumped, Lewis has been moved to center bounce hope he stays there and Vince will be pushing up the ground more. Lever and Hibbo will have field day in the backline.

Oh! My 3yo deleted my account. Tried to recover it, had no luck. Oh well!

    neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 15:22

    Wise move doncs I THINK you will find Frost will take the 2nd tall and Lewis will stay mids Lever will be THE sweeper

Peter · 06/04/2018 at 13:37

Two questions:

– Should I trade Naughton to Bonner?

– Should I downgrade Paddy Dow to another rookie for cash (I have all of the key ones, thinking L Fogarty if named)?

    HammerTime · 06/04/2018 at 13:41

    if youve got all the key rookies then hold Dow IMO. He will play a decent amount of games and get better each time he plays. I reckon he will score well tonight 😉

KSinny · 06/04/2018 at 13:43

Hibberd to Shaw or Ryan and Langdon to Fisher
OR
Hibberd to Simpson and Langdon to Ryan (WCE) ?

Caleb · 06/04/2018 at 13:50

I know cash generation is key.
Do I hold Langdon or trade??
I can swing garlett from mid to fwd n grab a midfielder or another fwd rookie.
My rookies are brayshaw banfied kelly Holman Barry Garlett fritsch and Langdon obviously.
Do I wait for Higgins or go someone on the bubble. Who am I missing?

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:00

    I have same problem. Only rookie I would consider is Ryan only because of the big jump in price he will get in the next 2 weeks because of his massive score last week.

    I usually would chance points like that, but Langdon could be out 4-5 weeks and with Higgins playing this week and on the bubble in 2 weeks need to have someone to trade.

    The only other issue is Langdon is a useful loophole this week for Fritsch. After this week GWS plays too early for him to be any use.

      Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:03

      Wouldn’t

Armonk · 06/04/2018 at 13:58

Can bring any mid in for Crouch but not sure if I should mind my dollarydoos or get the players I know will be there come the end of season.

Currently have Martin, Zerrett, Oliver, Fyfe, plus Crouch and rookies.

Looking at Cheap (Conigs), Middle (Parker, Cripps, Selwood) or Uber (Danger, Titch).

What do you all reckon. Save the money or splash out?

    Nuggety · 06/04/2018 at 14:42

    Im in a very similar position. I'm leaning towards Oliver only because he's like for like and don't want to throw out my structure. But geez Cogs looks like a steal atm…..

      Armonk · 06/04/2018 at 15:04

      If I grab Coniglio I can move Naughton up to Luke Ryan next week which if I get any of the others isn't possible. I think that might sway it for me.

        Nuggety · 06/04/2018 at 19:34

        I like it

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:50

    You will sleep better with Danger in your team. He is a lot of dollars though

JJJ · 06/04/2018 at 14:01

Have a bit of a pickle, no real "need" to trade, but I feel like i may miss the boat on some key cash cows. Have 222K in the bank, team as follows:
Def: Laird, Hurley, Finlayson, Dodee, Murphy, Murray, naughton and Coffield who debuts this week
Mid: Dusty, Titch, J Kelly, Fyfe, Parker, Congilio, T Kelly, Holman, Brayshaw, Banfield, LDU
FWd: Billings, Walters, Dev smith, Sicily, Taberner, Jarrad Garlett, Fritsch, Stephenson,

Everyone is playing, no one is losing money.

But do I need to get for cash gen purposes: Bonner, Liam Ryan or Allen Christenses?
I can go naughton or Coffield straight to Bonner
I can Swing Sicily back and bring in Liam Ryan
I can go Tabener down to Liam Ryan or Allen Christensen.

I have made one trade, flipped Kreuzer for Nic Nat (largely because i thought i would need to upgrade tabener, then he dropped 100)

Any advice?

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:47

    The cash is made by the cheap rookies.

    Bonnar, Christensen & Fisher are very expensive and will very quickly hit their ceiling. You then have to decide how long you keep them.

    They should score better than the cheap rookies, so if you are chacing points and you have the cash available instead of leaving it in your Danger-Bank, not a bad idea.

    I would wait for Higgins in a couple of weeks, Bailey and Wilson should play soon and make cash with those boys once the current cheap rookies have all hit their ceilings.

neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 14:06

Ellis and Sicily out 700k thank you now 2 options this is where my learned coaches come in
1 martin and murphy Martin is overs and murphy though a cash cow wont be there shortly or
2. Shaw and Fisher Shaw is way unders and has hit form and Fisher both a cash cow and great J S also this is better bye coverage. How many defensive cows do we need a good forward cow is crucial amid all the fwd crap . HARD NOT TO TAKE MARTIN but ZORKO in 2 weeks should ease it somewhat what do you guys think cheers fellas

Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:13

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
• The only con is Fritsch gets fielded instead of Brayshaw

Thoughts?

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:35

    wasting 2 trades bring him in and out, doesn't make sense

      Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:41

      Mid priced cash cow

        Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:44

        You'd be trading brayshaw out for him? really think there will be much of a cash generation difference to justify that?

          Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:00

          I’d be trading out Langdon for him.
          I mentioned Brayshaw because it means that with Garlett moving forward to make room, Brayshaw will have to be benched over TK and Holman.
          I might trade back Langdon later depending on my teams scoring and other factors

            Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:04

            I would never jump on a mid pricer, just leave Langdon or get another cheap rookie, one of the WC boys

              Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:19

              I’ve decided against Ellis-Yolmen but am choosing Bonner instead. I think they will average similar and gain similar prices but getting in a defender fits my structures better. So much better

                Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:23

                Again Bonner isn't another one I'd be chasing based off cash making purposes. I've started with him but wouldn't chase if I didn't have him. Trades are value you want to use them to get pros in, not upgrading to a mid priced cash cow if thats what you want to call it. Thats the last ill say on it though because you'll just ignore it anyways

                  Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 16:08

                  Okay, I’ll think about it a bit more

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:03

    I have decided against this.
    Even though it might generate me more cash, it won’t work for my future plans regarding rookies

CJudd3Votes · 06/04/2018 at 14:17

Anyone else heard Hurley could be in trouble?

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:35

    He only ran a few laps during the week at training. Has been named though

    lachy · 06/04/2018 at 16:19

    He is playing. He did it heaps last year, they have him on a program every time just to ease his back pain.

Scott · 06/04/2018 at 14:18

Naughton > Murphy
Dow > L.Fogarty

Are these trades worth doing. Worried about the job security of both fogarty and murphy. But I have all the other rookies. Could possibly trade in Gowers via DPP instead, but then job security comes into play again.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:58

    Murphy has good security compared to a few, but I doubt Fogarty will play this week

    Do you have all of: TK, Holman, Garlett, Banfield, Finlayson, Barry, Ryan, Fritsch, English, Venables and Gowers?
    I would choose all of them over Fogarty

      Scott · 06/04/2018 at 15:18

      Don't have the last 3. Ill definitely be trading Naughton to Murphy.
      Is Dow worth keeping? Or trade and try and grab some money from one of those last 3 rookies you mention

        Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 16:06

        Dow probably isn’t. Very few of the top 10 are. I’d choose English before the rest

Dave · 06/04/2018 at 14:19

Who should I trade out for lambert?
A) Devon smith
B) Coniligo (already have Whitfield)
C) bonner
D) Walters
Also feel free to suggest some others…
Cheers

    Dave · 06/04/2018 at 14:20

    I mean in btw

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:42

    I’d have to go with Smith.
    He scores the same as Walters
    He will be a keeper unlike Bonner
    He will keep your forward line strong unlike Coniglio

Saundo · 06/04/2018 at 14:23

Trade Greene?

Jose · 06/04/2018 at 14:24

Is Luke Ryan a must have?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:43

    No.
    Defensive options this year vary from person to person and to claim a second year player as a keeper after two games is too presumptive

      Jose · 06/04/2018 at 18:17

      Shit I meant Liam Ryan the rookie

Connor · 06/04/2018 at 14:24

Dusty or Oliver??

If I go Dusty I will have 8 premiums out for RD 14 Bye…

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:34

    do you have billings and savage?

      Connor · 06/04/2018 at 15:31

      Yes why?

        Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:33

        Just guessed, that would make rd 14 tough. Its on of the resigns I'm not touching those two

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 14:34

    Go Oliver then.

    He will get heavy tag this week though.

      Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:45

      Just saying, but there are 8 bench spots.
      You can have up to 12 players out for the bye rounds if you want

        Connor · 06/04/2018 at 15:31

        It's the fact that there are 8 premiums out though – that's a lot of points

        SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 15:34

        Ideally you'd want 4 or 5 premos(keepers on each bye rounds) that's not playing. You have rookies and mid-pricer to consider during those 3 rounds too. Any more than that you'll be falling behind during bye rounds.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:45

    How many in the midfield (for R14 bye)?
    If you have 1-3 in the Mid then Dusty, if more then Oliver

Petracconaldo · 06/04/2018 at 14:29

Hey guys
Have my mind set on using my first 2 trades to replace Crouch and Lambert, but not sure whether to go for:
A- Heeney and Martin (40k in bank)
B- Westhoff/Walters and Macrae (170k in bank)
C- Westhoff/Walters and Coniglio (300k in bank)

Any other suggestions would be handy, thanks

    Petracconaldo · 06/04/2018 at 14:32

    (Midfield consists of Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, [Crouch], Brayshaw, TKelly and Holman)
    (Forward consists of Billings, McLean, Smith [Lambert], Stephenson and Fritch)

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:33

    the first, both of those are leaders in their positions

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:47

    Easily A)
    Dusty is a king who doesn’t get tagged, kicks well and plays hard. His inconsistency must be noted though.
    Heeney is an inside midfielder, might as well be free points for the forward line

      Petracconaldo · 06/04/2018 at 14:51

      My heart lies with option A, but i was intrigued by Macrae. Is he a guy that i should get now or at the bye rounds?

        Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:04

        He’s got the R12 bye which is ideal

          Petracconaldo · 06/04/2018 at 17:07

          Thanks lads, appreciate the pointers

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 17:42

    Option A is a solid pick. Looking at your mids and fwd Heeney and Dusty fits right in during bye. You only have Billings Rd 14, assuming you have Laird in the back. 4 premos Rd 14 bye is perfect

Stupid Coach · 06/04/2018 at 14:34

Great job with the Panic Room this week. I feel this is the place to be where I can get some good advice on which of the following trades I need to do this week to make the best possible start to the leagues that I am in. Here are my options:
1) McGrath to Bonner and Townsend to Christensen – great cash generation just not sure about points generation.
2) McGrath to Bonner and Zerett to Titch. Some cash generation but also points generation and captain option.
3) Townsend to Christensen and Naughton to Bonner. Cash generation, McGrath stays but I don't get titch.

Really need any help/ advice that anyone in the community is willing to give. Cheers

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 14:47

    None of those trades look good at all, double sideways on all 3 of them.
    If you really want to trade option 1 or 3 but have one of those players going down to a rookie and the other to a premo lock

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 14:54

    I wouldn’t choose Christensen, he’s only had the one good game from two. Averaging 80. Not enough for his price
    I also wouldn’t trade Zerrett. You might want him back later when he finds his form. Especially if he finds it soon

    I would like to see your team, but from what you gave me, I would only trade Townsend.
    But to either:
    Fritsch, Ryan, English, Garlett in that order
    Or if you want that 250k player then Ellis Yolmen, Fisher and Bonner are looking good, hopefully you can get them with DPP

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:10

    If I really had to make a choice it would be #3.

    GreendaleFC · 06/04/2018 at 15:42

    Dislike the first two options. For option 3), is there anyone else that you can get instead of Christensen? Do you have all the important rookies?

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:12

    If you don't have titch then you'd have to have Danger and Dusty? If you don't then I wouldn't be worried about trading those peasants in your team that you mentioned. Focus on getting the must haves!

      Stupid Coach · 06/04/2018 at 17:32

      Thank you one and all for your responses and advice – I have Danger but don't have Dusty or Titch. I think I have most of the rookies needed. My team:
      B: Laird, Savage, L Ryan, McGrath, Deedee, Finlayson, Murray, Naughton
      Mid: Danger, Kelly, Zorko, Merrett, Parker, Cogniglio, T Kelly, Holman, Brayshaw, Garlett (Carl), Barry.
      R: Gawn, Nank, Olongo
      F: Buddy, Smith, Petracca, Townsend, Liam Ryan, Fritsch, ZGL, Gowers.
      Really feel I need Dusty or titch.

Tom · 06/04/2018 at 14:41

Which set of trades are better?
1. Mills – Ryan (via sicily) and Keeffe – Murphy

or

2. Mills – Curnow and ZGL – Ryan

mO'meara Mo'problems · 06/04/2018 at 14:46

Should I make O'Maera into Coniglio if it means trading Brayshaw down to Dom Barry (BE of -37) and keeping Zac Langdon, who I figure will come back into the team in a month and be a cow ready to cull, handily, after I've finished culling all the others.

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:08

    trade Langdon before Bradshaw. Can you? Or no DPP.

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:11

    Yes? Is there anything else you can do? O’Meara should be held for a couple of weeks longer

    mO'meara Mo'problems · 06/04/2018 at 16:02

    No DPP, and there's nothing else to do. Team's travelling really well at the moment. Just wondering whether it's worth making those trades to jump on Cogs at 450. JOM isn't looking like he'll increase significantly in value, and if Barry can hold his spot he could end up peaking at the same height of Brayshaw. Two trades to go from JOM the stepping stone (he was always intended to be one) to Cogs the potential keeper.

Dean · 06/04/2018 at 14:59

I have Rocky, Greene, Rayner and Naughton? What is priority?

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:05

    Just focus on perfect 9

    Nuggety · 06/04/2018 at 15:06

    Definitely rayner. Then probably Rocky before Greene just..

    TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2018 at 15:27

    Rocky
    Greene
    Rayner
    Naughton

    In that order – Rocky has been hopeless, Greene has injury cloud. Naughton lower price point so could have better cash gen than Rayner

Rambo · 06/04/2018 at 15:00

Ryan or Waterman as a forward rookie?

Considering trading Naughton for Ryan/Waterman (via Keefe dpp) to create cash for an Armitage –> Coniglio upgrade.
I'm 2k off having enough cash by trading Keefe directly to Ryan! 🙁

Thoughts?

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:05

    Ryan

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:12

    Hold Armitage. He has a relatively low BE and you can trade him for 50k more in a few weeks. You should trade Keeffe too if he isn’t named

Dimma · 06/04/2018 at 15:01

I started with a lot of cash in the bank, so i can upgrade both menangola and M.Crouch into Dusty and Oliver with 68k leftover (swinging Garlett mid to fwd). Would i be better off bringing in another fwd for menangola instead of stacking my mids early?
keepers before trade
Def 2
Mid 5
Ruck 2
Fwd 5 (Sicily missing 1 week)

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:13

    If you could bring in another back man, that would be ideal

      Dimma · 06/04/2018 at 16:28

      You're right, i can bring in Simpson which would bring a better balance to the side

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:22

    14 keepers in starting team is impressive. I only had 11.

      KSinny · 06/04/2018 at 16:32

      I had 15 somehow

      neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 16:32

      Is Sicily a keeper though and hard to have 5 on the FWDS are smith walters petracca maclean keepers

      SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:53

      In starting team I only had 12. But with Smith and McLean dominating that has grown to 14.

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2018 at 15:08

Final call to Hibberd owners. I'm still undecided.

What are we doing with him?

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 15:21

    I'm making the decision over half a dozen Pints. Which spells trouble for Hibberd

      AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2018 at 16:46

      Are you going to the game tonight Pieman?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 15:22

    Trading. To Simpson to be precise.
    Using the money pocketed and done. Only 50k but it’s enough. It’s the difference between Marc Murphy and Dusty. (It’s a bit far out but you get the drift.)

    Mike · 06/04/2018 at 15:28

    Traded him to Simmo

    Dusty · 06/04/2018 at 15:31

    Hold. Frost back in will free him up. Gotta remember he was on track for a ton last week, just had a poor last quarter.
    Also scored 40+ points in the final quarter against Geelong getting plenty of the ball. I think the scoring potential is there.

    Frankston Phil · 06/04/2018 at 15:35

    Trading to Murphy Murry on ground Hunter Clark to Oliver.

    Mystic Mac · 06/04/2018 at 15:36

    Hibb to Simo

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 15:40

    He's back in my team, I'm liking his chance of turning it around. Lewis is playing up the ground and hopefully he'll stay there for most of the season. Lever and Hibbo will be the main man in the back half. Vince will be pushing from the HB to the guts.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 15:47

    I'm keeping him mainly because I have other problems like Crouch, Mills, Bont, Clark to name a few,so Hibbo is a long way back in the line,even if I didn't have other things to fix up I would keep him,he still has to be a top eight defender come years end,so why trade him,you might need that trade come finals time.

    GreendaleFC · 06/04/2018 at 15:54

    I'm holding. I think he'll improve and finish in the top 8 this year. Also I don't hugely like Ryan, Simmo, or Heater.

      SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:14

      Your won't have the best of the best in Defence this year then Greendale. Settling for a flogging in overall.

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:55

    I am a “Future Hibbo Owner”

      Holty · 06/04/2018 at 16:10

      Same

    StevoRivo · 06/04/2018 at 18:45

    Hold. Trades are precious, and he will improve.

    NoLanguage · 06/04/2018 at 22:50

    Hold

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 23:41

    Trade him to Simmo but only expect about 95-ish from Simmo tonite even though the ball will spend most of the night down there. I don't think Cripps will have a very good game tonite because I've heard whispers that Pendle will be tagging him at stoppages. Will probably keep him below 100.
    Grundy will monster Kreuzer and score over 150 is the best choice for VC.
    It will be interesting to see who wins

      Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 08:36

      You’re a genius

      NovemberFoxtrotIndia · 07/04/2018 at 11:55

      Can I please borrow your Crystal ball next week Wow.
      Who's going to win the 4th at Randwick.
      That's 4 from 4 above…

      TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 13:32

      Ummm wtf that’s insane

Robert · 06/04/2018 at 15:12

If you haven't made a trade yet is Naughton to Bonner a good option, even if Bonner will likely not make final team at end of the year?

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 15:31

    Unlikely to be a top 6. So therefore you have to get him in & out. So that's 2 trades. Then downgrade a rookie for cash to go up. So you are actually using 3 trades most likely if you bring him in to turn him into a premo. You'd want a 200k price spike for that IMO. Not sure he can do that. But if you haven't used a trade & don't have any other issues he looks pretty good

      Robert · 06/04/2018 at 15:47

      Fair points, I'm basically treating it like a rookie correction in my mind (so it's effectively the same number of trades).

      Just working out whether having $100k+ in my kitty as cash with small increases from Naughton is more beneficial than not much cash in the kitty but a player that should increase in price…

      Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 16:40

      Everyone seems to not be considering the points that Bonner could produce on field compared to Naughton. Worth it IMO
      Don't really want to have 50 odd scores on field.

      pod · 06/04/2018 at 17:27

      I started with Bonner and hope he does make around $200k with the points along the way. He could quite possibly be an D6 by seasons end if Port keep going.

POTS · 06/04/2018 at 15:17

Posted yesterday re Hibberd OUT but reconsidering.
Thinking now Brayshaw down to Liam Ryan (via Garlett) and Armitage up to Coniglio

Gibbs · 06/04/2018 at 15:24

Trade or Hold langdon? Not making any other trades this week

Steve · 06/04/2018 at 15:25

Lachie Fogarty or Lachie Murphy?

Ben · 06/04/2018 at 15:34

Is it worth trading Darcy Fogarty to someone like Waterman? Or just hold and hope he gets another game at some point. I already have Fritsch, Ryan and Garlett fwd rookies

    Tiger · 06/04/2018 at 23:52

    I’m in the same boat. I’m holding until either he plays or another rookie surfaces.

TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2018 at 15:38

I was holding all week but now I've got an itchy finger. Naughton to Bonner worth it? I've used one trade this year and got $170K bank.

I was all on board holding Naughton but i can see Bonner earning far more coin with a better score output

Clark · 06/04/2018 at 15:45

Is Mills – Curnow via sicily a worthwhile trade? Or should i just hold Mills until a premo drops in price?

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 15:52

    That’s my plan. Surely he won’t score another 40?………..,

      Clark · 06/04/2018 at 16:04

      Yeah im leaning towards that Derek, but im also wary of how much Mills will drop,

Holty · 06/04/2018 at 15:54

Community. Please take a vote.
Ryan or Shaw?

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 15:55

    For Hibb??

      Holty · 06/04/2018 at 16:08

      For Menegola. Need to strengthen defense. Will bring in Fisher or Taranto and drop Naughton

        Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 16:15

        Still hard to pick the defenders I think, Hurley, Yeo, Laird should be up there. Fisher or Taranto will just be traded out again, think about it.

          Holty · 06/04/2018 at 17:15

          Agree with Fisher and Taranto. Reason i may go Fisher for some money and if he can average 80 ill be happy with. If he can make 150k ill be happy with as the way Naughton is going i doubt he will make that

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:17

    Sicily! Or Greene! JETS!

      Holty · 06/04/2018 at 17:43

      Not in a million years.

    The Ranger · 06/04/2018 at 16:46

    Ryan for mine. Going with the youngsters these days Holty.

Greg · 06/04/2018 at 15:55

Who to start, Garlett, Ryan or Venables, no loopholes unfortunately!

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:01

    Ryan

Gord29 · 06/04/2018 at 15:58

Crouch to Oliver or Cripps?

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 16:01

    Both good picks, depends on your bye structure. You don't want have too many premos(keepers) having the same bye.

Lament326 · 06/04/2018 at 16:05

Tom Cole has already played in previous seasons. Unless you mean to debut for season then yes that is possible. But he has already played multiple games fyi

Banga · 06/04/2018 at 16:06

Is Keeffe – Murphy worthwhile? Or should i leave Keeffe as a loophole until a rookie with better JS appears?

    Rambo · 06/04/2018 at 16:40

    Wait

Bill · 06/04/2018 at 16:07

What to do?

Trade ZGL to Barry via dpp this week

or

Trade ZGL to Higgins when he is on the bubble

    Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 16:11

    You'd LOSE $13,000 ZGL to Higgins on the bubble, doesn't sound like a great option to me. I'll be looking at cashing in on Higgins

RougheadNSheSwallows · 06/04/2018 at 16:12

G'day community, need help with a few calls here, do I: Ditch Naughton and jump on Bonnar?
Ditch Hunter Clark and bring in Ryan?
Ditch ZGL and bring in Ryan?
Or not trade?
Cheers community!

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 16:16

I have $219K stashed, wondering if I should spend it on Mihocek to Bonner or keep it for future upgrade. That cash would come in handy in couple of weeks time to get Kreuzer.

Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 16:19

Your team sounds horrible, probably best to save yourself the headache and just reassess next year

    TheGreatBozza · 06/04/2018 at 17:50

    Yeah nah I’m right. Went a bit left field and it didn’t pay off. I’ll be down trades but have a crack

      Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 17:54

      A bit?

SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:20

I briefly saw you commented options to choose from but I couldn't get past the 3 players you mentioned that you actually started the season with. Yuck.

Saalih631 · 06/04/2018 at 16:24

267k and 29 trades.

DEF: laird, hibberd, houli, doedee, murray, finlayson (o'shea, ballenden)
MID: Martin, mitchell, kelly, fyfe, cripps, whitfield, kelly, holman (brayshaw, garlett, Brodie)
RUC: Gawn, Naitanui (lavender)
FWD: heeney, mclean, smith, higgins, ryan, fritsch (keeffe, rioli)

I want to get my rookies right so im thinking either ballenden or keeffe to lachlan murphy and potentially the other one to either zac fisher or riley bonner (via finalyson and garlett dpp). thoughts?

dontblushbaby · 06/04/2018 at 16:26

Putting the VC on Fyfe , could go very large imo

    KSinny · 06/04/2018 at 16:33

    Wondering whether I should VC Fyfe or Cripps

      AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2018 at 16:48

      Collingwood dont tag so I'd be putting it on Cripps. Both viable options though.

    NoLanguage · 06/04/2018 at 22:51

    Hope you stuck with Fyfe. Cripps struggled

      WombatsFC · 06/04/2018 at 23:37

      Yeah Pendle has gone off the girls since the birth of his youngun ruined his usual stress-out area and he was trying to mount cripps at every stoppage and then running off playing hard to get. I reckon he might have got the end in a couple of times Patrick seemed a bit pink cheeked on occaision.

    pod · 07/04/2018 at 11:07

    Not sold on Fyfe going very large, just large. The Suns are a better team now.

Mitch · 06/04/2018 at 16:27

https://ibb.co/noTAgc
Any advice? Im inclined not to trade, i think ill hold hibberd hoping that he comes good.

not SC_WOW · 06/04/2018 at 16:28

Community…Big game tonight! Will anybody be able to stop the American Wreaking Machine?

Dave · 06/04/2018 at 16:36

Murray or Finlayson on field community?

    GreendaleFC · 06/04/2018 at 16:41

    Finlayson easily

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:25

    A lot of people bringing Bonnar in this week will have to bench Murray. He should do ok tonight.

    Bonner a good selection for D3

Fearthebeard · 06/04/2018 at 16:40

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?

Gareth Iggo · 06/04/2018 at 16:47

Undecided on menengola…
sideways trade to Robbie gray
Or menegola to zac fisher and upgrade Brayshaw to conigilo.
I still have 30 trades and my fwd line is currently:

Devon Smith, heeney, Billings, Walters, menegola, Ryan.

Thanks guys.

SirSamuel016 · 06/04/2018 at 16:48

Should I trade Sandilands for Nic Nat or hold him? Leaning towards holding him as I don't want to make a sideways trade or burn a trade I might need later, but at the same time I feel like Nic Nat could consistently do better?

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/04/2018 at 16:50

    You answered your own question with burning/sideways trade.

      Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 17:02

      Did you pick Sandi to trade him out after 2 rounds?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 17:07

    Why would you choose Nic Nat?

    He’s not going to get real game time for AGES

Andy · 06/04/2018 at 17:01

What the hell is wrong with Greene?

    Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 17:06

    Hamstring injury.
    I think it’s just tightness though, nothing serious. Don’t take this as a true statement btw, I’m just going straight off my terrible memory

      Lazza · 06/04/2018 at 19:44

      He trained fine yesterday … was running freely … only missing this week as a precaution … will be back R4… which is why I’m holding him …

    pod · 06/04/2018 at 17:32

    There was a conversation on SEN today with the someone from GWS, said he's back in next week. It's a low grade hammy decided to rest him, not taking any chances at this stage of season.

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2018 at 17:02

O'Connor dropped

Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 17:05

Final trades for this week:
Langdon—> Bonner

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:21

    Will Bonnar be your D3 or D4?

    With Bonnar at D4, means you have to bench Murray. He should do ok tonight.

      Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 22:14

      He is at D4 but Finlayson is in the midfield which means that Murray’s 91 half way through the 4th counts.

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 18:25

    I will be going Naughton to Bonner and Langdon to Ryan.
    Bonner will be my D3 and I will be loopholing Murray and Murphy for D6.

      Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 22:14

      I hope Murray did you well

        Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 22:20

        Yeah I am really happy with his game

Jim_bob321 · 06/04/2018 at 17:23

First time this season Armitage has been named in the centre bounce due to Richardson's axing …… perhaps reverse the trade from Armo to Cogs???

EasyMoneySniper · 06/04/2018 at 17:23

Hey Squad,
I need to bring a defensive rookie below about 140k, does anyone know if Ed Richards has decent job security, or should i just get Mirra or Mihocek and enjoy a defensive loophole until they get named?

Good luck this week lads

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:19

    O’Conner has DPP

john · 06/04/2018 at 17:32

Naughton to Bonner and Brayshaw to Barry? Need to trade brayshaw to have cash to upgrade naughton. Or just hold Naughton and hope he scores half ok from here on?

Timothy · 06/04/2018 at 17:33

I have two non-playing rookies in ZGL and O'Connor. Is it worth trading Langdon to Ryan this week if Ryan is the only Rookie that I've missed out on?

    GreendaleFC · 06/04/2018 at 17:45

    I think it's worth it. ZGL should be a good downgrade target in about 4 weeks, and I'm not sure how many of those we will have. Ryan should be able to make a fair bit of money in the meantime with his 115 last week.

Richie Porte · 06/04/2018 at 17:34

Remember a few weeks ago when the majority of you experts recommended Veneables over Ryan. Well done

    GreendaleFC · 06/04/2018 at 17:41

    It's been two weeks and small forwards aren't exactly known for their consistency. No one can predict the future

    Fisherdann · 06/04/2018 at 17:41

    Venables is more of the midfield type.
    Ryan's first game produced a score of 38. He won't kick 3 goals every week.

    Maverick_ · 06/04/2018 at 17:50

    How you looking for Le tour this year Richie?
    That was a gnarly stack last year.

      Richie Porte · 07/04/2018 at 09:58

      Looking good

    Auradode · 06/04/2018 at 18:03

    Do your own research!

      Richie Porte · 07/04/2018 at 10:00

      I use this as one of my research tools. Don’t you

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:16

    Why would you bother to post a comment like that?

      Richie Porte · 07/04/2018 at 09:59

      Sorry Derek, supercoach brings out the worst I’m me. I’ll try to be a better person going forward.

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 17:34

Holding Hibberd, Sicily to Fisher, Naughton to Bonner with 100k left in bank.

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 17:51

    I smell something burning

      BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 18:02

      It's either that or Hibberd to Shaw and Naughton to Bonner whilst fielding Garlett for Sicily. I think the fisher option has more upside despite being riskier.

        Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 18:14

        Do you even need to make any trades? Bonner is definitely not worth 2 trades to get in

    john · 06/04/2018 at 22:26

    solid trades buddy

Fisherdann · 06/04/2018 at 17:34

Langdon to Ryan and Naughton to Bonner
OR
Flog-cily to Ryan and Keefe to Simpson
Leaves me with 27 trades but I've essentially upgraded the flog to Simpson before his price hike.
What do you think fellas?

    Fisherdann · 06/04/2018 at 19:17

    Option 2 also leaves me with keeping Langdon and seeing how Naughton goes for another week.

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 19:19

    I am going with option 1. Would recommend holding Sicily

Crowboy94 · 06/04/2018 at 17:36

What new rookie named this week should I go for? I already have the main ones and need to get rid of Clark?

Thanks!

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:12

    Always wait until they are playing their 3rd game before getting rookies during season

    Cpt · 06/04/2018 at 18:14

    Higgins – contested beast (Shop Early Crowboy)

    RickyBobby · 06/04/2018 at 23:28

    Hold Clark this week as he's not playing and won't drop (can use him to loophole) then have a look at the likes of O'Connor and Higgins possibly even Coffield next week.

Jeff · 06/04/2018 at 17:58

Get Danger now in for Lambert or wait till he drops in price? He's the only one out of the three ultra uber premos that I don't have

    Jeff · 06/04/2018 at 17:58

    I meant Dusty

      pod · 06/04/2018 at 18:08

      Yes mate do it now!

Cliffy · 06/04/2018 at 18:01

In light of the recent news regarding Hibberd for his on-field positioning this round I will likely hold him and re-assess next round. Additionally, could use ZGL as EMG loophole between Fritsch and Ryan for this round. Other than that don't think I need to desperately make any changes, what do you reckon guys?

DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Naughton)
MID: Martin, Mitchell, Kelly (GWS), Fyfe, Coniglio, Brayshaw, Kelly(GEEL), Holman (Banfield, Garlett, Barry)
RUCK: Martin, Gawn (King)
FWD: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Smith, Christensen, ZGL (Fritsch, Ryan)

$122k left over.

Thanks

    SC_Seer · 06/04/2018 at 18:58

    Great team mate. Hold tight save trades and shoot for the top!!! Alternative trade like a busted arse and shoot for the skies!!!! mmmm Beer.

Daniel · 06/04/2018 at 18:03

Is it worth trading Naughton to Bonner if I'm going to play him instead of Sam Murray each week or not?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 18:27

    That's what I'm doing

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 18:28

    Not really

Michael · 06/04/2018 at 18:04

Is ZGL – Ryan and Keeffe – Murphy good trades?

Old Man Ruusty · 06/04/2018 at 18:05

Hi guys, just get my permission before you post ok

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 18:27

        R

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 18:09

I see so many people trading without thinking about Rd 12, 13 and 14. Round 14 is the most awkward bye round, people needs to have an almost even spread of premos(keepers) during the 3 rounds of bye. Otherwise you'll have one round with less players(points) that will push you away from the pack.

During the byes is when the sprint starts, if you haven't structured yourself for that. I'd starting thinking about it, before bringing any one in your team in the next few rounds.

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 18:57

    Great advice Donk. I have refrained from bringing in certain players because of that. All trades from here must be made with the byes in mind

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 11:36

      Hey Pieman, is it that important though if you mainly play for leagues and not overall rank? cheers

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 11:28

    Current structure
    R10: 1 midpriced-cash cow DEF
    R12: 1 MID, 1 RUCK, 2 TOTAL
    R13: 2 MID, 1 DEF, 1 RUCK, 2 FWD, 6 TOTAL
    R14: 3 FWD (2 FWD/MID), 2 MID, 2 DEF. 7 TOTAL

    I’m not dreading the R14 bye since I can still field 22 using the magical powers of DPP,
    At the same time, I’m targeting another forward which means I’m fielding one short. I’m not targeting any other players, apart from potentially Marc Murphy, so I should be good to go

Jeff · 06/04/2018 at 18:27

Derek what are you doing with Mills, are you trading him or holding?

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 18:28

    Think he said he was holding and waiting for an underpriced premo

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 19:00

    I’m 100% holding Mills.

    I had another look st last weeks game, after quarter time he clearly had a defensive role in one of the Port smalls. He didn’t do a very good job, so they might give him the loose man role again.

    GWS and Bulldogd give up second and third most points to defenders (Collingwood first). Swans have them next two games. If he doesn’t score by then he is out.

      jeff · 06/04/2018 at 19:08

      Thanks for the reply. I was unsure myself but now I think I'll hold, cheers

EasyMoneySniper · 06/04/2018 at 18:33

I believe Brody Mihocek is playing tonight… named on the interchange.

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:50

    And when did O’Shea sneak into the Carlton team

    Will that affect Simpson?

      EasyMoneySniper · 06/04/2018 at 18:54

      Did not see O'Shea sneak in either, don't think he will affect simpson too much, however i feel as though he isn't as good as his first two games suggests, nonetheless still a good pick as i think he will be a top 8 defender at least.

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 18:54

    He's not playing

      EasyMoneySniper · 06/04/2018 at 18:57

      Just refreshed the website, must've been an error. Forgive me Community

Steeeve · 06/04/2018 at 18:34

Hibberd to bonner
D fogarty to c Curnow.

Thoughts???

Michael · 06/04/2018 at 18:39

I'm not sure whether my team is needing a trade… Currently haven't used one, is it time to use some trades? I have 79k leftover.

DEF: Laird Hibberd Doedee Murray Finlayson Murphy (Sicily Naughton)
MID: Dusty Titch Fyfe Bontempelli Parker Cripps Brayshaw Kelly (LDU Holman Banfield)
RUCK: Gawn Nankervis (Olango)
FWD: Heeney Billings Smith Petracca Ryan Fritsch (Langdon* Garlett)

Thanks!

hedski · 06/04/2018 at 18:40

Thanks Kev, always enjoy your write ups.
Well the SC Gods have smote (smited? Smitten?), taken a dump on me again this week, third week in a row, so my dreams of overall have vanished for another year unless the rest of the comp forget to set their teams for 4 weeks.
But its good to get into the head to heads, got a few tough games against some good coaches this week, Trigga, Neil, Jambak and Damo good luck, you won't need it against me this week, got my 2 flogs on the pine, I'll hit back hard in the next couple of weeks, have a nice warchest stashed away.
On a brighter note I welcomed a Little hedski into the world yesterday so life is great.
Good luck for the round fellas. 👍🍺

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:47

      hedski · 08/04/2018 at 19:50

      Yeah another Cat I reckon Neil, already have two cats and a tiger. Thanks mate, thought we had the game won today, was a good come back but no soldiers on the bench hurt us, eagles to good.

KSinny · 06/04/2018 at 18:47

Last Call, Hold Hibberd or trade to Simmo?!?!?!

    Petrus · 06/04/2018 at 19:36

    I'm holding personally. Don't think you can go wrong with the trade to Simpson, he's set for a big year.

FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 18:59

Anyone ? No reply last time I wrote it…

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?

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 19:14

    I don't like it FTB. Leave Brayshaw to make some money. He showed in JLT he can pull off some scores. And they are playing away at home to GC

      FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 19:24

      Gday Pieman my old mate!

      Cheers for the thoughts

      I don't know why I've still got it locked in. Trying to convince myself to reverse it and save the trade though I just think Fisher is likely to earn more in 1 week then Bray does in 2…

      If he then has a big game in between I have a prime stepping stone for a keeper.

      Can't see Brayshaw being that

    SC analysis pro · 06/04/2018 at 19:19

    I don't like it either Bearded One. I'll back Brayshaw to make more.coin than Fisher, even if he doesn't it won't be by enough to justify a trade.
    Fisher is no keeper either

      FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 19:25

      Thanks for the thoughts. I get the logic of the trade being burnt. Though it could save me more on culling/quicker to get premium?

Nick · 06/04/2018 at 19:06

No loophole this week – wanted to take. Punt with Gawn but I’m unsure. Otherwise options are Titcj and Dusty. Leaning towards one of the boys in the head to head, bur which one?!

    INPieman · 06/04/2018 at 19:15

    Titch just

      FearTheBeard · 06/04/2018 at 19:28

      DUSTY SON !

Banksy · 06/04/2018 at 19:10

Is murphy worth bringing in? Got Keeffe who i have been using to loophole rookie defenders so could trade in Murphy for him. But would mean i lose the loop between Keeffe and sicily. Thoughts please guys i'm new

    Petrus · 06/04/2018 at 19:35

    Cash cows more important at this time of the year then points. But I would hold off on the trade. The DPP may be pivotal if any injuries come your way.

    Gibbo · 06/04/2018 at 23:22

    Okay josh

Holty · 06/04/2018 at 19:15

2nd year player Fisher. Doubt he will average above 85 but will make u quick money which is why im grabbing him. Havent seen Brayshaw play so cant comment

    Tiger · 07/04/2018 at 00:22

    Think he’ll average around the mid 70s which is still a big jump up from last year. I’m happy go have him. Fisher will make some good coin 💰

Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 19:35

whose starting/ed garlett?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 19:38

    Loopholing him and ryan

      Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 19:40

      should I trade out Giles-langdon for L.Ryan? Is it worth it?

        BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 19:45

        Tough one, I'd do it

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 19:44

    Starting him. I thought about loopholing him, but my only loophole option is Keeffe and I’ve put the v on kreuzer. It seems this way I get more options.

    I’ll trust him in and then hopefully get the best result out of Fritsch or (don’t expect 115 every week) Ryan.

Liam · 06/04/2018 at 19:42

Should I trade O’Connor to Ryan. Haven’t used a trade yet

Cheers

    Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 19:43

    Not sure Liam, I was thinking the same thing for Giles-Langdon, but then again I need a loophole.

      Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 19:44

      I would probably trade O'Connor though seeing that his JS is not the best as he got dropped this week.

    dontblushbaby · 06/04/2018 at 19:43

    No

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 19:43

    Worth it imo

Post_MaSloane · 06/04/2018 at 19:43

Panic! Still have no idea if I want to trade Duncan to Oliver :/

    Vinny · 06/04/2018 at 19:46

    If it helps I've regrettably traded Crouch for Oilver. In my opinion, I think Ben Jacobs will head towards Oliver. How does he go with a tag is the question.

      Post_MaSloane · 06/04/2018 at 20:01

      Yeah, think I'm just going to cop the donut. If I could afford dusty or Mitchell I'd pull the trigger but since I can't think I'll just stick fat

        BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2018 at 20:11

        You don't have a playing bench rookie?

          Post_MaSloane · 06/04/2018 at 21:09

          Nah I do, sorry just meant a donut from Duncan not for my team
          Bringing Banfield/garlett onfield through loophole

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 20:52

      Clarry scored 170 last time the Dees played North,not sure if Jacobs was playing though.

      StasGenuius · 06/04/2018 at 21:14

      Last time he was tagged in a real game he got reported for diving. when tagged in JLT he had 5 FA and scored at less than 1.0ppm

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 21:34

        He still scored 113 in the game against WC and he's tipped to score 115 this weekend.

          CleverRectum · 06/04/2018 at 22:11

          what's his breakeven?

            JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 22:32

            91,can't see him going up or down much in price,I like him for his consistent scoring,only four scores under 100 last year,80 being the lowest,you can usually trust him to score in the 100 – 120 range most weeks.

              CleverRectum · 06/04/2018 at 23:00

              Thanks John so he wont go up much this week. I can wait until next week and use the cash from the Dorko>Cogs Hibberd>Simmo correction to go Bont>Danger Steven>Oliver, if Steven goes 90+ this week

                JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 23:07

                Sounds like a plan,hope you allowed for the drop in Bont's price with his BE.of 175,looking to drop around 30k.

                  CleverRectum · 06/04/2018 at 23:27

                  Planned for a 42k drop from the Bont. I don't think that he'll pass 85 against the Bombers. He doesn't like it rough and dirty and the bombers do dirty better than anybody

Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 20:02

Will cox get a mark tonight?

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 20:42

    Probably not😓 on 0 atm. Still have him in my team. Waiting to offload him for Kreuzer.

      Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 20:44

      Kruse getting destroyed too

        SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 20:47

        Licking my lips, he'll be real cheap in couple of weeks. He's still not right he looks awkward jumping for the ball.

        Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 20:52

        Looks like trading him out was the right call for now

          RulesBitch · 06/04/2018 at 21:05

          SC rule #1 subsection 3a. If a ruck misses due to injury in the first 5 rounds he must be traded out.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 22:33

    Played a little bit better. His handballs are killing me, kick the bloody ball ffs.

Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 20:15

Murray is a gun

    hedski · 06/04/2018 at 20:28

    38 in the first qtr!

JugHead · 06/04/2018 at 20:25

Lol…..sidebottom on 16 possies at 1/4 time for 26pts. Projecting that logic forward he gets 60 plus possies for the game and just manages to raise the bat.

Fearthebeard · 06/04/2018 at 21:01

Why did I hold Kruez ffs

    Bucks · 06/04/2018 at 21:03

    Get on Grundy

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 21:06

    He isn’t 100%I

    Holty · 06/04/2018 at 21:10

    He is struggling with his injury.a fit Kruez would normally beat Grundy

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 11:53

      Maybe he is still not 100% but as a ruckman or around the ground im 1 that thinks Grundy is now better than Kruez.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2018 at 22:00

    He'll get at least 80 it's not a bad score. But nice for the vultures like me looking to bring him in couple of weeks.

JeanPratt · 06/04/2018 at 21:02

Crikey that Bolton bloke is a worse gameday coach than that malthouse bloke was when he coached carlton

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:40

    Kruse finish better than Grundy. He looked ok and got better as game went. Might be a good bye in a few weeks time

      RulesBitchybutHot · 06/04/2018 at 23:45

      Really? I reckon a finish of 157 is a lot better than a finish of 86.

Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 21:07

Anybody wanting to know if you should trade Hibbo to Simmo my advice is yes. Remember you heard it from me first because I posted this at 5:00pm but for some reason it was delayed.

    Carlton

    Gold Coast are stuck in the bottom 6 because of it

      Multi_ · 06/04/2018 at 22:15

PADDY DOW-tful the burns will ever heal

    Youtube · 06/04/2018 at 22:03

    Dow has a bit of poise about him. His best game to date. I think he will be a player.
    Murray IS a player.

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 12:59

      Dow just isn’t performing well. I’m hoping he gets dropped. We have better players in the twos

JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 22:03

Why have Simpson when you can have Murray,both on 72 pts at the end of the 3rd QRT.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2018 at 22:34

    Very nice finish from Sam. 95 is a ripping score 🙂

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:37

    Simpson a keeper. Murray not a keeper.

      Wombaaat · 06/04/2018 at 22:39

      More of a keeper than SPS Derek

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 22:39

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 22:08

Murray on bench, Bonner better smash it tomorrow

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2018 at 22:10

    Hope you didn't make those 2 trades because if so they are looking like huge wastes

      BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 22:26

      Absolutely kicking myself

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:36

    Bonnar good trade if he is your D3. As a D4 Murray gets shoved to the bench.

    Most people won’t have made the Bonnar trade yet, but many now thinking might not need to.

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2018 at 22:48

      Very well said Derek,no need for him as a D4 if you have Doedee, Murray & Finlayson, which most teams should have.

FarmerJohn · 06/04/2018 at 22:20

Q.
What's the difference between Carlton and Cow Pooh?

    Wombaaat · 06/04/2018 at 22:27

    Cow Pooh is brown and is good for your garden. Carlton is just $hit

    Jesus · 07/04/2018 at 13:47

    Ya mum

Steeeve · 06/04/2018 at 22:25

Cripps pinged for a couple of soft frees late, if not would be tonning up again.
Sorry to C Curnow owners, i brought him in so that explains the average night he's having

    DavidSA · 06/04/2018 at 22:37

    Long as he does not have those -70 dips
    80-90 lows are is fine even if it's every 4th week

BrownlowBoy · 06/04/2018 at 22:27

Fisher gets the cheapest junk time goal. His owners will be happy.

    DavidSA · 06/04/2018 at 22:33

    Fisher will be making cash till round 6 now at the very least. Good time for a chop too anyway if he makes 100-120k

      BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 22:51

      Went off after a knock to the head, could've scored even better, I'm happy considering

        Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 08:34

        He was off for all of 5 minuets. He got lucky with the FF and goal at the end. He’s not sc relevant

      Wombaaat · 06/04/2018 at 23:06

      Hopefully trade down to a dominating DPP higgins and turn Ryan into a F4 keeper

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:58

    because everyone had been talking about him I watched him tonight, he goes alright.

    Spends a lot of time around the ball. Picked the ball up nice a few times. He will get plenty of 80-90’s this year.

      Wombaat · 06/04/2018 at 23:31

      Yep that's ruined him for next week, last week you started spruiking SPS and he backed out his responsive score tonite.
      You must be the unluckiest bloke in the history of supercoach

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 00:09

        I’m mustn’t have done much of a job talking up SPS, couldn’t even talk myself into him.

        Did you get Fisher?

Steeeve · 06/04/2018 at 22:30

Aaand Curnow slots a goal late, gets 2 points. Ffs

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2018 at 22:40

    pretty sure he was on 78 when he kicked it, gained 8pts

      Steeeve · 07/04/2018 at 20:53

      Corrwct Fanfooty had it wrong

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 22:38

Simpson-good enough, Murray-awesome but on the bench, Cripps- Meh, Fisher-Alright. Take Garletts score or take a punt on Ryan, thinking of playing it safe.

    Tiger · 07/04/2018 at 00:08

    I’m taking Garlett score

    johnno2908 · 07/04/2018 at 11:31

    Simpson 97 with only 1 kick in and he didn’t kick it to himself. Very serviceable. Collingwood only kicked 4 behinds for the match which is definitely not going to happen every week. Lock for top 3 defenders for mine.

Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2018 at 22:44

Was locked on two trades all week Crouch -> Parker and Naughton -> Bonner.
After Murray’s score tonight really tempting to bring in a non playing defender to get Murray’s emergency score!
What to do???

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 23:07

    Bonnar needs to be at D3

      Wombaaaaat · 06/04/2018 at 23:24

      Unless you want a decent score.
      Cmon Derek use a different name when you're smashed

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 00:00

        If you have Diedee, Finlayson and Murray at D4, D5 and D6, most have Laird and one other premium at D1 and D2, so the only spot left is D3.

        It’s pretty sound logic

          Locked and Loaded · 07/04/2018 at 00:08

          Yeah I have the others mate and thinking along he same lines as you it’ll leave me with Laird, Hurls, Savage, Bonner, Doedee, Finlayson as starting 6

            Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 01:46

            Then you have Murray on the bench?

              Locked and Loaded · 07/04/2018 at 06:23

              Correct… have the E on him

                Borko · 07/04/2018 at 10:24

                Agree … Bonner needs to be at D3 … if not, let him pass and focus on improving another part of your team.

Rick Grimes · 06/04/2018 at 22:48

    Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2018 at 22:53

      Locked and Loaded · 07/04/2018 at 00:10

      Lolll issue is if I bring in bonner for naughton as originally planned will leave be better off in the long run and he could match Murray’s score! Love the encouragement though 🙌🏼

Northerner · 06/04/2018 at 23:15

How the hell did Fisher get 76 pts? He did nothing tonight. After watching the game I thought he was 50-60 area. Maybe he’s one of those that just has a SC game.

    Wombaaat · 06/04/2018 at 23:20

    His metres gained are usually pretty high and he gets a few score involvements tonite he also had 6 tackles and 8 of his possessions were contested

      Wombaaat · 06/04/2018 at 23:22

      He doesn't kick it backwards = every foot disposal is attacking, CD love attacking players.

        DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 00:07

        6 tackles helps too

Willymack1234 · 06/04/2018 at 23:16

What to do with Tobias? really don't want to field 3 rookies up fwd

    SC_Kev7 · 07/04/2018 at 16:30

    Not ideal. I assume those 2 or even all 3 rooks are small fwds as well. Take the hit this week, Greene was fantastic in the 1 game he has played so far. Prey he is back next week

      hedski · 07/04/2018 at 18:56

      I'll be making Tobias my captain, thank you teen wolf.

Stivlington · 06/04/2018 at 23:36

Dahlhaus – I think picking him was a mistake. He’s looked terrible in a terrible side.

Sideways trade? I already have Heeney, Billings, Walters, and D Smith.

I’m considering Petracca. I like R Gray but he had chemo so I’m not sure if he’ll be 100%. I can’t afford Buddy. Thoughts?

    Tiger · 07/04/2018 at 00:11

        I didn't know you are part of the Dogs coaching squad, can you give us some more insight?

        Josh · 07/04/2018 at 11:38

        Someone's gotta replace libba in the middle, Dahl will likely get more midfield minutes

    Northerner · 07/04/2018 at 06:27

    I do think we do have a surprising data point from first two rounds that puts Dogs in frame for bottom 4. Does put a cloud over him that may justify a corrective trade.

    [email protected] · 07/04/2018 at 09:13

    You are an ignoramous. Gray is fine like Roughy.
    Don’t pick him and suffer. Oh, he only scored 111 last week!!!!!

      Stivlingtons · 07/04/2018 at 11:40

      Righteo nuffie.

      Roughead admitted his treatment had negative affects during the season. He didn’t score as well as previous seasons.

      Also, Roughead had immunotherapy not chemotherapy so I’d be careful who you call an ignoramus.

Dayne · 07/04/2018 at 02:54

Worth going O’Meara (41 be) to Bonner (-44 be) via dpp to make a bit of coin?

    Northerner · 07/04/2018 at 06:24

    You’d be better going straight to a cheap rookie you don’t have, such as LFogarty or Barry if you don’t have them. Creates much more cash

      Dayne · 07/04/2018 at 11:29

      Have Barry. Wouldn’t Fogarty’s js be a bit of a concern?

Luke · 07/04/2018 at 02:57

Who do we think has the better js out of Waterman and Venables? Leaning towards Venables with JJK still to return although Waterman’s output has been considerably better.

    Northerner · 07/04/2018 at 06:22

    Venables has excellent JS. Waterman likely to be out next week for JJK

Stupid Coach · 07/04/2018 at 05:18

Thoughts on trading Townsend to Parfitt (Geel) – ave 98 and only $265k. Could be a nice POD or is it a trap and should I just bring Waterman in instead (already have L Ryan, Fritsch, ZGL and Gowers.

Is it worth trading Naughton to a non playing rookie to get Murray's score or back Doedee and Finlayson to score more than Murray.

Also, thoughts on VC – Gawn or Laird.

    Northerner · 07/04/2018 at 06:20

    I can’t see Waterman lasting once JJK returns and they are talking him up as being set for the Suns next week. This week’s price rise for son of muddy may be his only rise.

    Parfitt hasn’t shown enough yet for mine. I’m interested to see what impact Scooter has on roles and scoring at the cats. Too much uncertainty for mine. You’d be better going Christensen at that price.

      Stupid Coach · 07/04/2018 at 06:52

      Thanks Northerner. Parfitt has a better BE score (-20 compared to -8) than Christensen and projected to increase by 95k over the next 3 rounds which will take him to 400k and I can upgrade him. Also playing in a better team. I am concerned about impact from Scooter but just need to offload Townsend and think he might be the best option.

TheGreatBozza · 07/04/2018 at 07:52

Grundy was an absolute beast. Wish I had the balls to pick him. If he keeps up playing 80-90% ruck like last night he could easily be the number one ruck

    pod · 07/04/2018 at 08:39

    Looks the goods Bozza. Kreuz is still not 100% so not entirely convinced Grundy is #1

    Bunty · 07/04/2018 at 09:07

    Since I had Gawn selected early I didn’t want to have both rucks out due to the bye. However zNank going ok and he was cheaper. Will reassess at bye time.

Harry · 07/04/2018 at 08:44

Fyfe Captain boys after a fail VC Cripps
Have feeling Dusty and Titch won't be at their best due to tags
What does the community think?

    Gander farm · 07/04/2018 at 09:04

    You mustn’t have Danger – yet! I’m not going Dusty nor Titch either although I’d be surprised if the latter didn’t fire once again.
    I’m Fyfeing into Danger.

      Harry · 07/04/2018 at 09:08

      Mate just provide a sufficient opinion to the question i don't care who u got in or who u didn't get geez get a life.

        Gander farm · 07/04/2018 at 09:18

        Poor Harry, who takes SC far too seriously.
        Titch will score similarly to Fyfe, happy now.

        TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 13:41

        You’re being a goose, calm down. You asked for people’s opinion and he gave it to ya. And since it doesn’t align with your thoughts, you don’t like it. Don’t ask for people’s opinions if ya not gonna like their answer

DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 11:10

Ben Simmons and Lebron putting on a show and the scores are close early in the last.
Simmons records his 12th triple double of the season.

    Jordan23 · 07/04/2018 at 11:20

    I'm going Fyfe (Simmons) VC……..into Danger (Lebron) C

      DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 11:22

      😬
      Oliver into Martin for me

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:02

    Missed 2nd free throw. Glad it didnt go into ot. Out for lunch!

Jim · 07/04/2018 at 12:31

JOM, trade to Bonner or hold?

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 14:26

    Did you hold JOM Jim?

      GreendaleFC · 08/04/2018 at 19:19

      I traded JOM to Bonner. It was a 50/50 call for me but I'm already regretting it a lot

What_Bear · 07/04/2018 at 12:39

Hi Guys,

Had planned to trade O'Connor and Naughton out this week, but Murrays score had made me reconsider. I am thinking trading Naughton to Murphy now and keeping O'Connor, to get Murrays score. Is this smart? or should I chase cash?

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 13:04

    It’s worth it.
    You get the extra 64k from the trade and gain 30k more from cash gen
    And you save a trade

      What_Bear · 07/04/2018 at 13:35

      Yep. Thanks for the advice. Pays to not trade early. I would have missed Murrays score if I pulled the trigger on Thursday or Friday

Saundo · 07/04/2018 at 12:59

Oliver or Parker?

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 13:04

    Oliver.
    Very classy player

Michael · 07/04/2018 at 13:23

Hey guys, thoughts on trading Naughton and Giles-Langdon to Bonner and Mirra? I know Mirra isn't named yet but I am sure he will get games this year and he will allow me to get Bonner in via Sicily's DPP.

Thanks!

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 13:33

    Not sure about Mirra getting games.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 13:35

    Don’t jump the gun, it’s not worth it

      Michael · 07/04/2018 at 13:37

      Cheers, Tyruddanaut. Do you think it is better to hold my trades, and not trade out either?

      My team is currently:
      DEF: Laird Hibberd Doedee Murray Finlayson Murphy (Sicily Naughton)
      MID: Dusty Titch Fyfe Bontempelli Parker Cripps Brayshaw Kelly (LDU Holman Banfield)
      RUCK: Gawn Nankervis (Olango)
      FWD: Heeney Billings Smith Petracca Ryan Fritsch (Langdon* Garlett)

Rob · 07/04/2018 at 13:39

Hi community, need some very last minute help deciding between these two trades
1. Naughton to Murphy
2. O'Meara to Bonner (trade Naughton later)

    fcabel · 07/04/2018 at 13:49

    I’d hold

Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 14:07

It's kind of funny since I knew bonner was a trap and I still chose him anyway.

    BVB21 · 07/04/2018 at 14:24

    Bonner and Fisher are traps.

    People can’t say they weren’t warned

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 14:29

      It was either that or field Murphy or Naughton so whatever. If he can manager a 70 I will be fine

        BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2018 at 15:08

        You were advocating against him so much I thought you would avoid him lol, fisher is looking alright compared to how Bonner is doing. Still a half to go, here's hoping he scrapes a 70

          Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 15:23

          I am not very good at taking my own advice

    johnno2908 · 07/04/2018 at 18:40

    Yeah I talked myself out of the Brayshaw to Bonner trade mid week… then 30 seconds before the game traded him in. Not overly happy, but Brayshaw looking like 💩 making me feel a little better

Whitey · 07/04/2018 at 14:08

Bonner's bad result this week will be because of all you people who jumped on him…or he just not that good.

    Blacky · 07/04/2018 at 14:09

    Is the game over? sit down

    Whatyasmokin · 07/04/2018 at 22:57

    He should be a slow burn to 400-450k

Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 14:21

Zorko is an absolute spud!!!!!!!!!

    Holty · 07/04/2018 at 14:53

    He is on 58 points?

    Finnius · 07/04/2018 at 15:07

    55 at HT

      Tyruddanaut · 07/04/2018 at 21:05

      15 at QT
      Finished on 92

Daren Gasper · 07/04/2018 at 14:26

I have all the rookies except Liam Ryan is he a must have happy with team only player I’m. It happy is JOM ?
Worry on his is he consistency maybe CEY might be a better option?

    SC_Kev7 · 07/04/2018 at 16:27

    Just sit tight, Daren. Ryan will be all over the shop scoring wise, but he will get a nice cash bump if you need it. I worry about CEY's body and isn't much of an upgrade on JOM anyway

BVB21 · 07/04/2018 at 14:45

Oliver on 9 and Fritsch on 4 at quarter time. Ouch’

    Holty · 07/04/2018 at 14:57

    Oliver was always going to have a tough match with Jacobs running with him. I hope he scraps an 80. That would be a fair score against Jacobs

DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 14:47

Omg what are Port doing!
It's clear Rockliff is underdone
Drop him and put Gray in the middle plz!

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 16:37

    Another good hitout for Robbie regardless.

      DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 17:13

      More about Ports line up Russty
      Port not strong enough in the middle

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2018 at 14:52

Thats what she Saad is your team, isn't it Sc_Wow? Must be pleased with Big Stef, he's killing it!

    Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 23:38

    He’s going pretty well

Holty · 07/04/2018 at 14:55

I really do hope noone in the community traded out Martin based on last weeks performance. Remember, most rucks will struggle against Gawn.

cashcows · 07/04/2018 at 14:56

Don't suppose there's a good non-playing rookie I can bring in to grab Murray's Emergency score?

    SC_Kev7 · 07/04/2018 at 16:23

    Tom Cole from West Coast has been named for the past two rounds on an extended bench, can't be too far away. It's a risky move though

    redherringfc · 07/04/2018 at 19:22

    Keeffe. Be quick.

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2018 at 15:08

Looks like Hibberd needs to be traded too, I might just run out of trades before getting past the byes

    BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2018 at 15:13

    *Proceeds to have a 50pt quarter*

SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 15:21

I should've benched Oliver(E) i knew he was gonna struggle.

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 15:48

    I wonder if anyone did

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 15:56

      I seriously though about it, with E just in case. We knew this was going to happen

        SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 16:04

        I was really thinking about it since O'Connor was dropped. But then i thought Oliver wasn't gonna do that bad and Jacobs might leave him alone and tag somone else in 3qtr time. Hopefully he does at 4qtr time and Oliver can get some junk time.

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 16:05

      If someone did, would be a very wise move.

    Captain Risky · 07/04/2018 at 15:49

    I am hoping he throws in a crap score so I can bring him in cheap.

      pod · 07/04/2018 at 17:02

      Can't believe he made it to 76 but still should effect his price, his b/e was 91

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 17:31

        2 late goals. Take anything

    Osca · 07/04/2018 at 17:21

    No one would had the guts to do it. Talk is cheap.
    Jacobs will do that to several stars again this year. Haven’t got Oliver but have Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe and Parker so he will do a job on them too. Simply don’t VC them when they play NM.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:29

      Good call.

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 17:54

        Norf have Carlton then Hawks.

        Cripps then TMitch

Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 16:11

Time to Panic!..gonna be some spudly scores this week, I have Bonner, Clarry and Christensen..ouch.

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 16:11

    Bonner is on 70!!!!
    Junk time please save us

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 16:16

      That's not terrible, been getting a few touches in the last, hopefully 5 more!

Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 16:26

Oh jeez!…Christensen had em dead to rights and he kicks it like a girl's blouse, would've been a 30 point play I reckon.

KSinny · 07/04/2018 at 16:32

Last minute captain change to Fyfe?

    pod · 07/04/2018 at 16:59

    Did you make the change? If you did good move. I vc'd Fyfe 5 min before start of game, stoked.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:05

      Nice move..I rolled the dice with Gawny but he didn't quite get enough.

      KSinny · 07/04/2018 at 17:53

      Tried to do it but was too late 😣

    Holty · 07/04/2018 at 17:08

    Brave and paying off. 50 at 1/4 time

Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 16:54

Fyfe's absolutely killing it…12 minutes in, well done if you VC'd him.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:00

    The VC is locked on Fyfe. Touch wood he keeps on going.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:06

Fyfe has come to life!! 49 SC at quarter time. Noice!!

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:07

    Very Nooooice indeedly!…:), especially if you VC'd him.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:09

      Yeah, be nice to nail a VC after not getting it quite done in the first two rounds. I so would like Olango to get a run tonight. LOL

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:13

        Tony could be very popular this week haha

          Big G · 07/04/2018 at 17:20

          thanks for whoever came up with the suggestion.

            Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:24

            Not me mate, I'm too dumb for that..I think it was Derek. 🙂

    Baggy Pants · 07/04/2018 at 17:24

    Feel sorry for the ones who traded him out after round 1.

TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 17:17

What score should we be taking from Fyfe in order to not go with Danger/Titch Captain?

    Baggy Pants · 07/04/2018 at 17:25

    Im taking 130 plus not going to be greedy.

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 17:29

    139

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:51

    Maybe 150 at this point.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:59

    140+ will do the trick for me.If he can score around that mark and Danger or Titch are good enough to beat that, well then thats fine. Not gonna be over greedy. Been stung in arrse too many times. However, being 85SC at half time, I will be disappointed if he cannot crack the 150+ from here.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 19:15

    The way Titch and Danger go about it,probably 145,my usual VC cut off score is 130+

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:17

      164? 🙂

Kanga · 07/04/2018 at 17:29

I have had Bonner from the start and ‘didn’t jump on him’. He finished 2017 well and did ok in the practice games so based on that I grabbed him cheaply which gave me the money to have six VG mids.
He will be ok. Make some cash and trade him off come his bye.
I don’t do everything right but not preturbed as he is in a VG team who will win many games.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 17:30

    Me too Kanga…not concerned with him not getting a ton every week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:46

    As long as you started with him, there is nothing to worry about. If you used a trade to get him last week or this week, you would have cause for concern. I am just going to let him go up until his BE exceeds his average and move him on for hopefully a tidy profit. (Which should be before his round 10 bye)

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 17:52

      Still better than the 30 naughton or Murphy will dish out

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:24

        Murphy shouldn’t be on the field ever.

          Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 22:25

          Yeah that's why Imade the trade to bring Bonner in

      Kanga · 07/04/2018 at 22:41

      Well expressed Tophawk.

    Whitey · 07/04/2018 at 18:01

    I didn't see the game, he had a few possessions and 10 marks. Was his DE down?

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 18:04

      Yeah gave some frees away and turned it over

        Whitey · 07/04/2018 at 18:17

        A good sign really, if he can clean that up should score well.

      pod · 07/04/2018 at 18:20

      No tackles hurt

    StKilledme · 07/04/2018 at 22:30

    If you'd spent 46k more you could have got seedsman with DPP

TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 17:42

Brayshaw doesn't even look like getting near the footy

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 17:52

    Low TOG as well

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 17:53

    Brayshaw is struggling out there. He is on my bench and if he cant break the shackles he and Naughton's heads are on the chopping block. I havent used any trades yet, but going into round 4, barring any major injury dramas, the axe will likely fall on these two overpriced and underachieving rooks.

Keenbutclueless · 07/04/2018 at 18:01

I have the Flog Sicily in defence. He may well be giving me his most benefit in loopholing Murray’s score and wearing the C to get Fyfe’s VC.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:09

    Sounds like enough value to have hung onto him this week Keen, he'll be back and looking to redeem himself next week.
    I was gonna trade him out, but circumstances prevented me this week, so I held.

Crowboy94 · 07/04/2018 at 18:16

Why is there so many crap rookies this year. Get taken high in the draft and they all look like crap!

Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 18:21

Ryan was on 60 at half time and hasn't scored since. Is he hurt? He has the band aid icon on FF

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:29

    No he's just topping our day off, him and Holman have disappeared.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:36

    Oh they've re-appeared again…could end up ok both of them 🙂

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 19:11

      Fyfe VC and Ryan serving as a great pod. Happy with that match

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:15

        Ryan's been awesome, sometimes the risky ones pay off.

JugHead · 07/04/2018 at 18:29

Hanley injured………what a surprise……….they should name a hospital after him

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:37

    Yeah poor guy, might be time for him to call it a day.

    Fella · 07/04/2018 at 22:37

    Ha. Feel sorry for him but Jughead – I got a laugh from your throw away line.

Hawks · 07/04/2018 at 18:41

Do I take Gawns 117 SC points as C, or try to go bigger with Titch or Dusty, and if so which one?

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:52

    Titch and Dusty should both score more than Gawn, flip a coin if you're conflicted, or take the one with the higher average.

    Multi_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:06

    117 is not enough throw the C on one of the others

    redherringfc · 07/04/2018 at 19:18

    Titch.

    should easily beat 117.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 19:21

    Need 130+ from your VC ,Dusty can go big but Titch is more consistent.

      Rick Grimes · 07/04/2018 at 19:25

      Agree. Feel 130+ is the vc standard.

        arnie · 07/04/2018 at 22:35

        No Rick, 140 is.

Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 18:56

Brayshaw to Higgins in a few weeks sounds good if Higgins doesn't turn out to be a dud.

    KSinny · 07/04/2018 at 20:47

    Definatly

    Hawks · 07/04/2018 at 22:39

    Higgins will be the rising star this year. Just watch this kid play.

      Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 23:24

      Crowden on bubble this week, Brayshaw won’t make much more

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:55

      Hope he's in the Kelly, Holman, Finlayson, Doedee category Hawks, could use another rookie like that.

Jack · 07/04/2018 at 18:58

If your R1 was going okay (let's say Goldy, Kreuzer or Jacobs) and you are convinced Brodie Grundy will be top2 ruck.(along with Gawn, who you already have)
Is it worth sideways trading your okay R1 for Grundy?
Haven't used a trade yet, incase anyone wondering
Loving the podcast so far Lek & Patch, but any chance we could have Jock as a special guest this week for 5 minutes to talk about the rucks? Jock had a very good eye for 'the big bastards'

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:21

    It’s a long season. Hold now and see what happens injury wise

    SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 22:29

    What Derek said and Have a look at Stefan Martin poor score last week and a huge one this week. Rucks don't play the same team every week. Imo Top 2 Ruck for me is Kreuzer and Gawn, shame Kreuzer is carrying an injury wait in a couple of weeks he'll be right.

    Wombaaaat · 07/04/2018 at 22:37

    Great ask Jack I was wondering the same thing and decided to wait until the byes and adjust my rucks then if I need to

hedski · 07/04/2018 at 19:06

Looks like I've lost 30-40 points fielding Brayshaw over Banfield but happy to take Fyfes VC, well done Toby Flog you're my captain.
Now Siciflog you can do some good work too and loop Murphy and the DreadNaught.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/04/2018 at 22:53

    Big plums required to go the double flog!

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:00

      Haha

      hedski · 08/04/2018 at 00:11

      I reckon they'll be good picks Smokey, just gotta hold my nerve, only 3 rounds in.

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:48

        Hey Hedski, I was hellbent on getting rid of Siciflog this week, but when Darcy Fogarty was dropped I had to punt him for Liam Ryan or I would've missed out on a shitload of cash, so Sicily went to the pine.
        Thinking now I'll give him another chance, and hope he doesn't shove his fist up someone's nose or something next week lol

        Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 13:18

        Sicily has big scoring potential and Greene is a proven top forward. Just hope they don't cost another game each at some point then you're looking at a poor total season output.

Multi_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:08

Thank you VC Fyfe still laughing about all those coaches that traded him out. Poor bastards

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:16

    That's insane in the membrane.

    Crowboy94 · 07/04/2018 at 19:18

    I'm laughing at the people who traded Fyfe and Hibberd. Stupid trades!

JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 19:10

Think I will be doing a double trade next week,Brayshaw and Clark need to be out of my side,only problem is who to replace them with.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 19:15

    See how Higgins goes this week John.

      JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 19:18

      I might even have to look at a midpricer,starting to think three rookies in the mids is one too many.

      Retta · 07/04/2018 at 22:33

      I will wait TWO weeks on Higgins.

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:35

        Good for YOU.

          Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 23:26

          Crowden on the bubble

            JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 23:36

            Yes that 72 he scored was alright,could do a straight swap with Brayshaw and bank some cash.

    CaptainObvious · 07/04/2018 at 22:34

    Dusty and Danger are pretty good.

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:54

      Bloody Legend! 🙂

DavidSA · 07/04/2018 at 19:12

David Mundy quietly chugging along as a top 6 forward maybe top 8 at the least

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:18

    Walters looked ok

    It was only the suns

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:21

      The Suns are better this year though, Stewy has made a difference, Freo were pretty bad last year.
      Losing Hall and not having Barlow doesn't help.

Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 19:13

Take Fritsch' score or take the punt on Venables?

    KSinny · 07/04/2018 at 20:48

    I'm going with Venables

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:18

      Same. Give Venables a run

      David C · 08/04/2018 at 06:45

      Venables needed 3 goals last week just to get 59. I think I'll take Fritsch's score.

Rick Grimes · 07/04/2018 at 19:24

Fyfe = life.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 19:26

    Yep. Olango just been put on the paddock. With a big C above his head.

    Kyle · 07/04/2018 at 19:27

    It may only be round 3 but going neale over fyfe isnt looking fantastic atm

    BrownlowBoy · 07/04/2018 at 19:39

    Olango gets his first captain's armband this week.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 19:37

Andrew Brayshaw has the honour of being involved in my first trade for the 2018 season. Going into this match with a BE of -3, he produces a score of 32 SC. After 3 rounds with a combined 152 SC points total, and now increasing fark all in price, he has been condemned to the scrapheap. YOU'RE FIRED.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 19:45

    Will be doing the same,just need another rookie to put their hand up,since I have most of the good ones.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 20:04

      Likewise. Perhaps Crowden, Higgins…..will worry about that next week.

    CheekyNandos7 · 07/04/2018 at 20:01

    He will be my third for the year. Probably him to Higgins

      redherringfc · 07/04/2018 at 20:36

      Haven’t checked his ownership numbers, but Higgins is a genuine POD.

      Anyone who has played this game for more than 3 years knows he is Burn Man King.

      Do you already own Waite?

        Steeeve · 07/04/2018 at 20:57

        Wrong higgins

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 21:07

        Jack..Richmond rookie.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 20:11

Holy Cow! I do not have Coniglio…..Not for long. That bloke is starting to turn into a SC monster. 62 SC at the 7 minute mark of the 2nd quarter. That's seriously good.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 20:27

    Had him hoping he would end up being my M8 at the end,I love it when a plan comes together.

      Rick Grimes · 07/04/2018 at 20:31

      Yep, will pull the trigger on him next week.

        Sause · 07/04/2018 at 22:30

        How do you plan to get him Rick?

    hedski · 07/04/2018 at 20:59

    Got him in for Crouch this week TH and pocketed a fistfull.

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 21:35

    Looks like he is eating Kelly's points as well which is frustrating

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 22:23

      Kelly never plays well againts the Swans and his score of 90 tonight is equal highest score againts Sydney.

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:17

    The swans gave him no attention early and he did what he liked.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/04/2018 at 22:50

    Coniglio the only obvious underpriced midfielder this season in my books, although i guess the fear of him only becoming a 500-550k player scared people away. I reckon he has the talent to be top 15 (possibly top 10) so a bargain!

    johnno2908 · 08/04/2018 at 08:55

    I had him to be my bloke to upgrade to Danger. He is making it a tough decision with a low score of 120!

PeteB · 07/04/2018 at 20:25

Haha did anyone seriously dump Fyfe. Surely not !

    Matho · 07/04/2018 at 22:29

    Some idiots/inexperienced SCers did.

      Wombaaaat · 07/04/2018 at 22:39

      He actually increased in ownership by 2k so I doubt that many dropped him

Rick Grimes · 07/04/2018 at 20:32

Coffield looking like a great down grade option. Getting plenty and looks composed.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 20:43

    I'm with you there Rick,might solve part of my Brayshaw/Clark problem.

Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 20:52

Should have just went Lobb to Curnow. Looks like he's injured and done stuff all

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 21:16

    Not sure how to get rid of him now as well.

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:15

    Unlucky. Injured knee in 1st quarter. Was on 37 at time. Came back in and played at full forward and finished with 59

    Injury might keep him out for a few weeks

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 22:21

      Yeah I only have 50k in the bank so not many options. Didn't see the injury but if he was off to a great start that sucks. Might be forced to go down to a rookie.

      Claire · 07/04/2018 at 22:28

      Derek, you are so ‘on the ball’.

      Wombaaat · 07/04/2018 at 22:43

      But he only got 58 the week before without an injury. silly starting team selection for the 2% that have learned a lesson early. Don't roll the dice with 400k on a big bloke under an injury cloud

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 23:50

        The 97 the first week was really annoying as well.

Steeeve · 07/04/2018 at 20:59

Two weeks time I'm moving a def/mid rookie to the guts and turning Brayshaw into Coffield. Lad looks made for AFL.

    TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 21:17

    Isn't coffield Def/mid?

TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 21:08

Parker is doing sweet FA. Straight switch to Cogs is on the cards next week.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 21:17

    Was thinking the same thing about Shitfield…wtf happened to him tonight?

      Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 21:21

      I am looking at Zerret

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:13

      He fumbled the ball a lot tonight. Played in forward line 50%

        AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2018 at 22:17

        He's starting to worry me however I wont be trading him yet, he's still a gun.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2018 at 22:17

    And now Billings is also turning into a liability. Seriously, you can not make this scheit up! Its trade time.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:19

      I hate the Saints so much right now!…want them all gone from my SC Team, and my life.

        hedski · 07/04/2018 at 22:46

        Picked 2 saints Russty, Billings is annoying me, the other ones rolling along nicely.

    Asproman · 07/04/2018 at 22:26

    So he has had a bad night like we all do. Still very SC relevant.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:51

      No , when the Saints go missing, which will be often, So will Billings or Savage, or someone else you're depending on in that side to deliver. Gator's right…get all Saints out of your side before it's too late!

JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 21:52

That feeling you get when your F1 is on a lower score than the two rookies on the bench,I'm looking at you Billings.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:05

    The feeling you have when you barrack for the worst team in the world!…might start going for the Dees John, and yes i had Billings too, the Saints are a complete write off this year, no talent, no stars, it's a miracle we beat Brisbane week 1.
    Gator was absolutely right, don't have any Saints in your Supercoach teams.

      Mastro · 07/04/2018 at 22:24

      Everyone will beat Brisbane!

        Matt · 07/04/2018 at 22:40

        Harsh, they've been competitive every week so far

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:40

        They would've beaten Port, if Christensen didn't kick like a girl, and Port beat Sydney Swans last week.

      JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 22:37

      Hey Russty,I know exactly what you are going through,being a Dees supporter,I went to some dark places and we are just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel,before that it was a steam train coming to run us over.Thank God Roosy decided he wanted to coach us or we might still be struggling.I might slowly be getting the team I had before I changed it at the last minute before round one.Oliver came back this week,not good timing,Buddy will come in for Billings,then I just have to get Danger in round six.

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 22:58

        Hi John, just don't see any hope for us…it's been all downhill since we blew our chance in 2009/2010, seriously contemplating not barracking for a team at all or switching, Saints are a lost cause.

          JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2018 at 23:28

          I know where you are coming from Russty,you really should have won one of those,not sure which was worse,the toe poke by Geelong or that bounce against Collingwood plus you scored 9.14 in both those games.I don't think you can ever support another team once you pick one,been barracking for the Dees since 72,you can walk away for a while,for your own sanity and try not to take it as seriously but you always have that bond with your team.

            gator59 · 07/04/2018 at 23:39

            Yes you have nailed it there JD… It's very frustrating when you lose GF's just because of luck… Then when you see the Doggies and Tiges waltz in and win when they've seen not much finals action for years

            Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:58

            Hey John, just very disappointed in the last few weeks, I tried switching to North Melbourne once when i was 12 years old, and realised that they sucked, and went back to the Saints lol, cause it didn't feel right.
            But I do agree with Gator, all Saints need to be out of my SC side, so Billings is out next week, straight to Jesse Hogan…bam!..Dees are on the rise and Saints are headed for the gutter..and when they play badly, which is normal now, the whole side goes missing, barring a few flukey good scores by a few who don't get dragged down by the whole depressing mess.
            Those 2 Grand Final losses still really hurt and I blame Zac Dawson for at least one of them…lol

              hedski · 08/04/2018 at 00:18

              Savage is chugging along nicely mate just quietly.

                Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:21

                Yeah he's going ok Hed, but it won't be long before he's at the psychologist again wondering why he's getting depressed again about losing every week lol

              JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 01:44

              Hi Russty the closest I got to barracking for another team was to support a team in the finals,so I would have an interest.North in 74,75,76,77 due to Barrassi being coach and also wanting Stan Alves to win a premiership in 77.Hawthorn from 78-86,that ended with the 87 preliminary.Then with the Dees playing finals I didn't support any other club in finals till the mid 2000s,I did like Sydney in the 2005/2006 GF, St.Kilda 2009/10 GF and loved it when Sydney beat the Hawks in the 2012 GF. Since then I have kind of turned off finals time. I did think about Jesse for the fwd line after last week but it looked strange with three Dees players in it.

                neil demons delight · 08/04/2018 at 11:48

                Hi John Russ Gat yeah Gator was right about the saints Billings to Petracca or Hoges makes sense What the saints need is another ROBBIE MUIR they are too soft and then good ball users like Kelly or Martin Too Late Time to do a Clarkson from 2017 scrap the year finish last (they may not need to try hard) sorry boys but fact then search for MUIR – CHEERS

                  JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 12:31

                  Hey Neil Robbie Muir was in the head and would be on the sidelines more than not in today's game,not sure what the problem is with St.Kilda,but it sure isn't not having a Robbie Muir.

      gator59 · 07/04/2018 at 23:12

      Now you know what I was talking about Russty.. They have no genuine A graders and until that happens they will not be SC Relevant.. Although young Coffield looked ok tonight

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:59

        Hey Gats, unfortunately, until he has a senior side he can respect, he'll end up a mediocre player too.

          gator59 · 08/04/2018 at 08:54

          So true rusty.. They have to do some serious trading some where to get some A graders .. They say that they're cashed up to do this but I still say they should've traded picks 7 and 8 last year.. The way we are playing we're looking at a number 1 draft pick and we'll still f.uck that up too

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2018 at 21:56

Billings with a huge 💩

SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 22:15

I'm thinking par score this week will be 2100, I'm seeing a lot of low scores so far. And the hype of Torranto backfired by looks of it. Bonner did ok, Luke Ryan looking like a breakout contender Walters hmmm Round 14 is just awkward for me. I have my sight set on Dusty and Jelwood.

    Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:35

    My Midfield PODs of Parker and Oliver very quiet today. Shaw had the ball plenty of times but kicked poorly. Billings just isn’t very good at football. Lobb got injured just when he was scoring really well.

    Rookies continue to do well. Holman scored good, Doedee, Murray and Finlayson in defence have been ourstanding.

    Pretty happy I stuck with Mills instead of going to Bonnar.

    And Fyfe VC is stashed away.

    Thinking 2200 will be a good score this week

      TommyC99 · 07/04/2018 at 22:42

      Thanks Derek for convincing me to keep Mills! Was pretty annoyed when i saw my trade target in Ryan pump out a 110+. But MIlls stepped up tonight, very happy!

      As for my score. sitting on 1635 with Danger, Titch, Kelly, Dev Smith and Fyfes added 160 to come. Billings and Brayshaw really disappointing. With a bit of luck, should get close to 2200 which doesnt look like too bad of a score this week.

        Derek · 07/04/2018 at 23:20

        Cheers Tommy

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 22:44

      Great you stuck with Mills and not trading him for another mid-price. I picked up Bonner for cash gen as i had Mihocek in the bench not making any cash. If Mihocek gets a game then I'll pick him up when he's on the bubble. By then Bonner should have generated enough cash to make my trade worthwhile.

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:07

      Good call sticking with Mills Derek, I think Billings is ok at Football, but that doesn't do you much good when 95% of your team are playing like crap, and disposing of the ball like under 13's.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/04/2018 at 22:43

    I almost did Loyd (GWS) to taranto but held strong mentally and held considering hes fit and in the best 22. Rewarded with a 95 hopefully a decent stepping stone.

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 23:25

      There was a lot of love during the week for Fisher, Bonnar and Taranto. None of them covered themselves in glory.

    Wombaaat · 07/04/2018 at 22:51

    I was heading for 2420 until Billings and Jack steven laid thier eggs on my score card. Now predicted for 2329.
    2300-2400 is the predicted range for most teams in my league

      Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:01

      That'll be a big score this week.

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 23:22

      That will rank high if you can manage that. Who is your C?

        wombaaaat · 07/04/2018 at 23:59

        TMitch

      Rick Grimes · 08/04/2018 at 05:57

      I reckon I can still go 2300+

        Derek · 08/04/2018 at 12:02

        That’s pretty good.

        I’ll need everything to go right to get 2200.

        Everything means Lycett getting at least 70

          SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 12:14

          I'm in the same boat Derek

          Still have
          Titch(VC), Danger(C), Smith, McLean, Kelly and Ryan to play. Hoping to hit 2200+

          This will be the best start of the season I ever had if i get 2200+
          Considering i had a couple of players scoring sub 40s last week and this week. Waiting patiently when the slaughter house is open.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 07:26

    I’m still projected 2363….. Not to mention with TK, Titch, Danger, Devon, and Nic Nat to go scoring 1783 atm
    Top 1%?

      Caleb · 08/04/2018 at 11:20

      Lobb injured u say!? :/

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2018 at 22:16

I think next week Lobb will be making way for Curnow. He gets absolutely monstered by competent rucks (like Grundy last week) and now that he'll be carrying a knee injury i just dont have confidence in his scoring ability.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 07:25

    I’m thinking similar, except I don’t have a lot of money for trading.
    I’m likely going to downgrade him to Higgins or polson

SneakySeedsman · 07/04/2018 at 22:25

Do the Hawks have a tagger? not for this week but next week against Oliver who can't handle it yet, as shown in JLT. If you don't have him I wouldn't be rushing in just yet. Kelly will get cheaper too and may not be a viable option at all with Coniglio staying in one piece. Seedsman a great midprice pick averaging 96 and a major part of the crows attack, great buy for 300k congrats to the 9%

    Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 22:28

    Hawthorn used Howe as a tagger a bit last year and Shiels runs with players from time to time

      Derek · 07/04/2018 at 22:37

      Langford will be back as well

        Defying_Madness · 07/04/2018 at 22:44

        Good point

    Hawks · 07/04/2018 at 22:42

    Shiels will go to Oliver. Shiels is a great tagger for those ball getting types. Last week against Geelong Shiels laid 15 tackles on Dangerfield, he only really got off the chain for 5-10 minutes in the 2nd half.

      Wombaaaat · 07/04/2018 at 22:47

      Thanks Hawks I wont bother with Oliver for a few weeks then. Steven to Dusty will break the seal on the trade vault this year

StKilledme · 07/04/2018 at 22:33

Kelly 91, I've got 123k defenders who can do better than that.
He now ave 105 which is rubbish for a 620k mid. Dump him

    SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 22:50

    If you done your research you wouldn't be expecting him to score well. Obviously you don't and chasing points, good luck with that.

      redherringfc · 08/04/2018 at 12:46

      Why’s that?

      I didn’t do my research, but went on last years points. Put him in at the last minute for Oliver, who I was concerned about his injury.

      Haven’t traded yet, but am considering Kelly to Coniglio.

        SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 13:23

        If you read my comments about Kelly this week prior to the game, you wouldn't be expecting him to score well. He doesn't do well against the Swans.

        If you have trades to burn by all means go for it. I think burning trades like that Kelly to Cogs is the dumbest idea at this time of the season. I would suggest you find other ways to get Cogs in if you think he's gonna be a Top 8 mid this year. With the likes of Dusty, Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Oliver, Kelly, Jelwood and Gaz taking up those 8 spots at this stage.

          redherringfc · 08/04/2018 at 13:42

          Thanks for the reply.

          I’ve picked my 8 mids that I think will be best 8 come years end, but having doubts over Kelly, Zorko and Merrett.

          I won’t be trading Kelly out or bringing Coniglio in. I’m just dirty with myself that my only mid priced mid is Armitage and not Coniglio.

            Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 14:17

            I thought Armitage would be a better pick than O'meara but big doubts now, he's gone this week.

    Bend em · 07/04/2018 at 23:23

    Frustrated fellow.
    Great player Kelly who had an offish night by his lofty standards.

    Crowboy94 · 07/04/2018 at 23:32

    91 that could have easily been over 100 if he kicked straight at goal. If 91 is as bad as a premo MID is going to be I'll take it!

hedski · 07/04/2018 at 22:51

I think I'll bank Murphys 63 rather than chance the Dreadnaughton…

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 23:01

    Yeah much better than 18 or some shite.

    gator59 · 07/04/2018 at 23:21

    Wise move there Hedski… Only if he had grunt in him like his name sake Connor Naughton

ATeam12345 · 07/04/2018 at 23:39

Who else traded in Shaw and Taranto?

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:03

    If you traded both in this week, don't give up yet, Shaw's been doing well, and so has Taranto…they were playing their traditional rivals, usually a high tension game.

      Derek · 08/04/2018 at 00:16

      I thought Shaw had a good game. His kicking wasn’t great like it usually is. Had it plenty of times though.

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:24

        Wasn't a bad loss either, only 3 kicks in it.

    David C · 08/04/2018 at 12:40

    Taranto had a hard tag from Hewett. That's not going to happen often. He'll be a good pick going forward.

      Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 13:09

      Waste of two trades whoever bought him in. Starting with him you'd probably hold, but he'll not be top, and now he will most likely be crap value and have little profit by the byes when you need to ditch him.

      It's that awkward price range/risk player combination that almost never pays off.

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2018 at 23:45

Seedsman didn't even enter my thought process when trading Naughton (went Bonner instead) Whoever picked him would be very happy right now

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 07:37

    I was very close to picking him, flip of a coin, but I decided against it when I didn’t have enough money generated by my Hibberd to Simpson trade that I cancelled

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 08:33

      It’s 3 games in. The seed will start spudding it soon

        Woohoo · 08/04/2018 at 09:50

        Idiot

          Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 10:00

          Look at his history Woohoo, only idiots are the ones backing him, have fun with your dud ranking

            Wombaaaat · 08/04/2018 at 16:32

            Here's some history for you and it's recent history = the relevant kind.
            After an injury ended his 2016 he started 2017 in round 19 as a defensive tagger on Fasolo. He missed the next 3 and played the final round in midfield for 94.
            During the finals he knocked out a lazy 111 against the cats playing the role he has now. Played same role in GF but struggled along with all the crows. Ave 81 for finals

            In JLT 2018 He played the 'forward delivering defender' role scoring at over 1.15PPM. The fact that he had the role in the finals of 2017 and the pre-season of 2018 was evidence that he would have the role for the year.
            If you understand supercoach you'll know that this attacking defender role is one of the most lucrative roles in the game.
            So, seedsman had a 2017 finals ave of 81, he also scored at over 1.15PPM in JLT and also has Def/Mid status yet he was only 300k. To any astute observer that should say "great points with $ opportunity"
            If the unexpected happened and he ave below 80 his price would still increase AND he fills the important 'stepping stone' role giving an easier upgrade to MID PREMO or DEF Premo, if he isn't one himself at bye time.
            After the first 3-rounds he has an ave 91 and only 1 score below 99 and will be over 450 in four weeks.
            You are criticising people for having the aptitude to uncover 'low risk-high return' players whilst your own cookie cutter team is already more than 600 off the pace and ranked outside the top 15,000.
            If you haven't got something intelligent to say stay quiet.

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 12:15

    You're right about the 'right now' but he's not going to sprout and grow.

    Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 13:05

    Early season Bolter aka Taranto.

Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:27

How hard is Augusta National?…if I was playing there, I'd be +80 by now lol, but I still wouldn't have got a 13 like Sergio did.

    hedski · 08/04/2018 at 00:31

    I put a sneaky tenner on Marc Russty, $500 back if he can stop his 3rd round chokes and hold on, he's looking good, especially going round with Tiger the first 2 days.

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:34

      Leish is a solid player mate, good luck with that, he came very close last year. Hope Tiger's crap play doesn't drag him down though…it can happen.

        hedski · 08/04/2018 at 00:37

        Shouldn't be playing with him in the next round tho, Tiger only just made the cut.
        Haven't checked the tee times tonight shouldn't be far off.

          Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:40

          Yeh you're right, love to see Leishman get the green jacket, he's such an everyman, but a super talented Golfer.

Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 07:35

Shout out to those two people who traded in Ben Griffith’s and Kurt Tippett

Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 07:41

Is it worth holding Lobb?
He’s a great player and the sole ruckman for GWS, but he’s going to score poorly for quite a while. If not, he just won’t play

    Woohoo · 08/04/2018 at 09:51

    NO. You shouldn't have him scrap the turd now

    SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 10:08

    Personally, I'd hold. His not gonna lose much cash, wait until the rookies are ready for culling and then move him on to a premo whoever you got your mind set on.
    I have Cox who will bleed a bit of cash who I'm looking to trade out in a couple of weeks for Kreuzer.

    If you have used a few trades in the past two rounds, conserve your trades until round 5 or 6. If you still have 30 trades, then go sick and kick him off your team.

      Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 11:37

      I’m worried about his injury.
      If he misses then I’ll trade

        SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 11:49

        If you have the cash to upgrade then move him on. 3 games in doesn't give you a good indication of who will be the top 6-8 fwd. I'm sure you can cover him if he's out next week. I would hold for a couple weeks and assess your options then, some rookies will be ready to be move on by then and you'll have more options to upgrade with the cash rookies generated as well premos dropped in price.

        Be patient, use those trades wisely.

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 11:58

    Wait to see extent of injury. I think he might miss a few weeks. Will need to trade him out.

Pete · 08/04/2018 at 08:04

Who would you consider untaggable, and in what order?
I wanna see if this corresponds with my midfield picks.

    dontblushbaby · 08/04/2018 at 08:14

    Dusty ,Danger, Titch

      Pete · 08/04/2018 at 08:20

      Cripps?
      Usually gets 20 plus contested possies.

        Octa · 08/04/2018 at 09:17

        We will find out next week with Cripps if Jacobs goes to him?

        TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 10:24

        Wasn't a hard tag but Pendles went to him at stoppages. Based off his score it limited his impact a little bit

    SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 10:41

    Jacobs is in another level to any taggers this season, I think he'll give any player a run for their money. He's really good of what he does without being a pest/annoying to his opponents. His tackling, speed and reads the ball well is what impacts his opponent.

    Moustachio · 08/04/2018 at 15:13

    Crouch and Gibbs… because teams will tag Sloane instead. Key to shuttig down the Crows and everyone knows it.

Steve · 08/04/2018 at 08:28

Had Fyfe as VC,to get his score can l put Sicily on field as captain and then bench Naughton as Emg

    Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 08:31

    Yep

Holty · 08/04/2018 at 08:35

That feeling you have when ur proud of yourself with your team score and Shaw and Lobb happen.

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 11:53

    Shaw had a good game. His SC didn’t reflect it.

INPieman · 08/04/2018 at 09:17

What a round for Brayshaw to shart out a 32. Sits in his price for 3 weeks. Might be the first rookie to head to the slaughterhouse

    dontblushbaby · 08/04/2018 at 09:24

    Just looking at same thing, who are you looking at ? my first thought is down to Higgins ?

      INPieman · 08/04/2018 at 09:40

      Yeah Higgins worth a very good look. See how he goes today

    Steve · 08/04/2018 at 09:38

    Upgraded him this week to cogs, no regrets

iheartpendles · 08/04/2018 at 09:36

I accidentally named Greene as emergency in my FWD line, even though he wasn't selected this week. I now want to loophole Fyfes 160 through Sicily, while placing Ryan on the bench as emergency. Will Ryan's score as emergency count, or will Greenes 0 count as the lowest emergency score? I looked through the rule book but i could only find the following:

"Emergencies scoring 0 or negative points will not be considered the 'lowest-scoring' and will not be used"

I'm unsure because I've been burnt like this before, was there a rule change or something this year for 0 scoring emergency players?

Cheers

    dontblushbaby · 08/04/2018 at 09:41

    You need the non playing player on field with the C on him , eg put the C on Sicily with E on Ryan ,as long as you have the VC on Fyfe you will get Fyfes score and Ryans score, Greene won't count for anything, hope that makes sense

    INPieman · 08/04/2018 at 09:41

    Lowest score I'm afraid

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 09:48

      Yeah Greene didn’t play, it won’t count

    iheartpendles · 08/04/2018 at 09:49

    Is anyone certain on this? If I'll get Greenes Zero I'd rather name mitchell as captain and risk it.

      David C · 08/04/2018 at 10:01

      I wouldn't say I'm certain but pretty sure non playing Greene would not be considered if you have the e on him.

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 10:02

      Yeah why would you get a non playing players score as E. That’s just like saying your non playing C will get the captains score

    KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 10:39

    You won't get Greene's score you'll get Ryan's score

      iheartpendles · 08/04/2018 at 11:40

      Thanks everyone, i hope you're right

        Finnius · 08/04/2018 at 12:58

        We are.

neil demons delight · 08/04/2018 at 11:53

Hogan looks an immediate choice but his apprentiship as a flog could bring him undone Petracca most probably a safer choice as a forward keeper

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 12:12

    Hoges nearly a must have, very keen on him. He's arrived and it's time to consider. Tracca playing well but not sure he's top 6.

pod · 08/04/2018 at 12:02

B.O.G. Mills what a turn around from previous weeks. Derek you need to change your name to something like 'The Sage'. Keep it coming well done!

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 12:58

    Cheers pod.

    I really liked how the swans gave it to him to make the clearing kick

    GWS’s forward pressure was poor. Different to Port game.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 12:07

Purple pods do it again- onya lads

Tarranto trade? Hmm didnt see the game but that is an awful score for him. Did trade brayshaw who went even worse so will give this one a few weeks to see how pans out. Maybe the sydney factor.
But he is better than that. Didnt get injured did he?

    BrownlowBoy · 08/04/2018 at 12:22

    Hopper inclusion really hurt him. Didn't attend many centre bounces.

    He had 5 and Hopper had 15 – Fantasy Freako stats

    David C · 08/04/2018 at 12:42

    He was tagged by Hewett.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 13:19

    Thanks boys
    Some good info thete.

Richard · 08/04/2018 at 12:16

I didnt get to catch the game last night community. What happened to Taranto? Was he still playing pure mid or has his role changed? Im basing his low score just off the fact that they played sydney but I want an opinion of someone whose seen the game. Cheers.

BrownlowBoy · 08/04/2018 at 13:55

Tom Mitchell was one of those kids who's parents obviously never taught them how to share.

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 14:30

    Just a casual 17 effective passes is sharing enough for me

Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 14:22

O’Meara with 64 at half time….
2867 people are kicking themselves right now

DavidSA · 08/04/2018 at 15:37

Mitchell what the hell are you?
What galaxy?

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:03

    He's from the Planet Awesome!

Harry · 08/04/2018 at 15:42

Goodbye Bont! Playing no where near the ball
Bont to Danger

    DavidSA · 08/04/2018 at 15:58

    So many premium turds this year
    Rockliff
    Menegola
    Billings
    Dahlhaus
    Hannebery
    Bontempelli

    Am I missing anymore?

      Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 16:16

      Add Merrett to that list!

      JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 16:31

      Only have Billings out of that lot and he will be gone out of my team next round.

      pod · 08/04/2018 at 16:39

      Dahl 65 half time. Only needed more mid time for him to get back to his usual self, look like he's getting that.

        Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:44

        So many examples of people trading out good players too early in season.

        Early round trades are to get rookies and trade injuries.

        Hibbo will be the next one to come good.

          Harry · 08/04/2018 at 17:19

          Might keep bont in the end ahahahah

      pod · 08/04/2018 at 17:38

      Menegola traveling ok on 64 18min into 2nd quarter

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:30

    Tough Marker Harry. Bont 52 at half time

    Merrett is a different story

    JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 17:20

    Think you might have to put that trade on hold Harry.

Neverweaken · 08/04/2018 at 15:53

Kept O'Meara this week. And didnt get Taranto but did get Coniglio. But next week Armitage to TMitch for a perma captain.
Last 2 weeks VC Cripps into Buddy and Buddy into Martin. Just killing me. And Murray on the bench.
At least Franklin tonned up from a poor start. And Walters who I think was 7 at quarter time.

Mike · 08/04/2018 at 15:59

THANKS FOR THE 3 WEEK OF PAIN MERRETTTTTTT. SEE YOU LATER

    Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 17:57

    Ozzie · 08/04/2018 at 16:15

    Grinter was a thug!

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:15

    Might have to fly Tonya Harding over here Neil.

      NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn · 08/04/2018 at 16:31

      ROBBIE MUIR remember him rusty played for your mob tough

        JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 16:37

        Muir was an idiot.

    JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 16:36

    You are saying some silly things lately Neil,Bugg played a top game against North,a valuable player for us when he's playing well,he's not going to throw that away.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 16:02

Another day at the office for Titch.
Lazy 42 disposals, 8 tackles, a goal, a stack of contested possessions and 150 SC points.
Get on him for Charlie

54, 40 , 42. No they r not golf scores for the front 9.
136 disposals first 3.rounds. Some players be lucky to get that this season!!

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:11

    I think he might be a Robot from Westworld 🙂

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 16:17

      Perma capt.
      Was slightly concerned i didnt VC fyfe but no need to worry.

      Ive never seen him cry.- may rust 🤣

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:30

        Yeah this 150 a week thing is becoming a habit, didn't vc him or Fyfe so hoping Danger has a good one.

Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:05

Ed Red Richards looking pretty darn good so far, off to a flyer!

    Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 16:15

    Can't say the same for Merrett. Might be on the block this week…

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:27

      Yeah very quiet!..is he injured or just can't get himself into the game?

        Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 16:34

        Just can't get into the game… bit like last week.

    JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 16:29

    Looks good Russty,a few rookies putting their hand up.

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:33

      Hi John, Higgins was ok, got a couple of SNAGS haha, he reminds me of a young Jake King.

Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:18

Who is going to ruck for Geelong today?

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:22

    Maybe Blicavs..can jump pretty high.

      Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:32

      Big day for Lycett coming up 😉

      And NicNat…

        Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:33

        No surprise to see Hutchings come in

          Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 16:34

          Who do you think he'll go to Derek?

            Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:41

            Selwood. If he goes to the other two, they will just then go forward. Selwood stays in guts

            Scott Selwood takes another place in the midfield

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 16:41

    Looks like Ratugolea

NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn · 08/04/2018 at 16:29

Another Demon forward on the horizon BALIC 5 GOALS WELL and truly BOG VS Coburg today

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:47

    Bit expensive. But agree I really rate him. Doubt I’ll have room for him at that price.

      NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn · 08/04/2018 at 18:56

      Got a lot of opposition too Derek Hannan Kent( with an e) jkh Fritsch

Derek · 08/04/2018 at 16:46

The BE’s of Bonnar and Naughton will be very interesting reading this evening.

    Northernsoul74 · 08/04/2018 at 17:09

    Naughton might have just done a hammy.

    SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 18:09

    Happy either way, I kept Naughton and brought Bonner in for cash gen, Mihocek was just sitting in the bench doing nothing. Win! Win! For me.

Harry · 08/04/2018 at 16:48

What does the community think of a potential upgrade to Ablett? Looks the goods

AuroraBorealis?! · 08/04/2018 at 17:07

Merrett may very well be on the chopping block.

    Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 17:56

    Merret to Coniglio for me. Question is will it cost me anything?

Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 17:12

Chris Scott is a complete Dhead! Put Dangerfield on the ball FFS

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 17:16

    Better change his game plan after that crappy quarter..C on Danger here wahoo!

      JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 17:27

      Thought you would have gone with Titch Russty,had the VC on Fyfe & C on Titch for the first three rounds and will for the next two.

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 17:30

        Rolled the dice on Gawn John..gonna be a bad week for my team this week

          JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 17:48

          Big Maxy was looking good at HT,so not a bad call Russty,I guess that is one advantage of not having Danger in my team at the moment,had a look at the fixture for the first five weeks and Fyfe & Titch worked in well with it,the only ones I thought I could depend on.

            Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 17:59

            You might not even want him by then John if Scott keeps playing him fwd, yeah no one to blame but myself for this week's choices, oh well, dem's the breaks and all that, I think it'll be a miracle if I make it to 2100 this week.

              Sandyf62 · 08/04/2018 at 18:09

              Hey Russty by the sound of it,better to just write this round off,I had Titch as VC and Danger as C,but after Titches score put the C on Olango. The way it's going maybe it was a good idea to start without Danger,had him in and out of my team in the lead up to round one,but went with him to save a trade later on.

                JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 19:00

                I said at the start of the season,that Danger getting that injury might be a good thing,so that teams would have to make a decision on whether to start him or not,I only decided a few days out from the start,with the plan to get him in round six and use Fyfe&Titch as VC&C till then.

    JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 17:19

    Feeling really happy I don't have Danger at the moment,looking forward to round six,when I planned to get him in after a nice price drop.

      JugHead · 08/04/2018 at 17:49

      I don't think he wanted to put Danger back on the ball during the last part of the Hawks game but did anyway to try to win it. Now they have to look after that hamstring after a 6 day break.

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 19:11

      Who for exactly?

        JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 19:29

        Have money in the bank to be able to upgrade one of the expensive rookies to him.

Harry · 08/04/2018 at 17:27

Bit concerned for Tim Kelly

Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 17:34

Who else has the C on Danger?

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 18:00

    Yup!…LOL, gonna pay the price this week!

      Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 18:02

      Was a tossup between titch and danger. I chose wrong

    Sandyf62 · 08/04/2018 at 18:13

    Looks like Titch is the way to go,for now anyway,I had him for his consistency,but this year he's even pumping out the big scores.

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 18:31

    Still might ton up

      JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 18:54

      Looks like it,his third Q was a lot better.

Holty · 08/04/2018 at 17:36

Gee trading Menegola for Shaw this week is looking the goods.😣

Neverweaken · 08/04/2018 at 17:39

My opponent has VC on Mitchell and C on Danger. And has left C on Danger. My only hope of catching up on him

BlueBaggerJosh · 08/04/2018 at 17:40

What a backwards week of supercoach

Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 17:45

Anyone give up on SC yet? 😂 I can honestly say I nearly have…. So many pathetic scores from premo players….

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 18:00

    Gotta persevere mate..it's a long season, one game won't break you.

      Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 18:02

      Merret, Lobb, Billings will though

        BlueBaggerJosh · 08/04/2018 at 18:08

        Wasted trades, should've listened to you mate, Ryan would've been perfect cover and Naughton improved once again

      Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 18:03

      One game wont but the first 3 of the year could. Worst start to my year since the first year i ever played haha

    Holty · 08/04/2018 at 18:49

    Lobb Shaw Roughie McGovern Oliver for me

DavidSA · 08/04/2018 at 17:56

WOW! Highest scores in Essendon team is 85 from Devon Smith and Michael Hurley. That is a insane result for the supercoach record books

    INPieman · 08/04/2018 at 18:06

    What's even more astonishing is Naughton was 24 points away from Dons highest scorer

      DavidSA · 08/04/2018 at 18:16

      Haha!

    Wombaaaat · 08/04/2018 at 18:26

    Yep Zach Merrett in 5-weeks might be a straight swap for Holman at this rate.
    WTF with Kelly and the Salary Cap 3

    JEL · 08/04/2018 at 19:08

    WTF, did they even turn up?
    My 2 Bombers are Smith & Zerret, hope I can write it off as just one bad week.

      Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 20:52

      Me too. Hooooooooold. Both great players.

Finnius · 08/04/2018 at 18:17

Menegola on 85 5 minutes into the 3rd… who traded him?

    Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 18:38

    Not many started him Finnius. if you want him he'll be 100k cheaper in 4-weeks status turned off most

    Holty · 08/04/2018 at 19:02

    I did Finnius. Wasnt too upset until Ablett went down. Now he will probably go back to his role last year.

      Big G · 08/04/2018 at 19:57

      ha. me.

JugHead · 08/04/2018 at 18:19

Dodged more bullets than john wayne this weekend. Was looking forward to making up some ground on the field. Then YEO hits me right between the eyes in the last game FFS

BrownlowBoy · 08/04/2018 at 18:21

Those who traded Menegola wouldn't be happy!

Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 18:29

I'm absolutely gobsmacked at how many dopes actually started with Dangerfield knowing that he would miss rnd 1 and that Ablett had been added to the side. Just plain stupid

    Ja191 · 08/04/2018 at 18:32

    he's going to average 130?

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 18:34

      Thanks Nostradamus what makes you think things will change? Also are you including the donut for round 1 in that calculation?

        Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 19:49

        Since he didn't play, no. That is not how averages work.

    INPieman · 08/04/2018 at 18:34

    Save trades to get him in is the logic. You can get him later but how?

      Wombaaaat · 08/04/2018 at 19:09

      I planned to not start him, I think most who didn't start him would have also planned.
      If he was going to be an immediate must have after 2-rounds I have a 500k player I took a gamble on and 250k in the bank. The 500k player was going great until injured this round but will increase by 20k.
      I have to trade out the gamble but now I'm not sure if I want Danger until he shows that he's not going to lose 150k before the bye.
      I have TMitch, Dusty and Macrae already and I think Oliver might struggle for a few games against taggers so Who do I swap the now 520k mid for?
      I have 760k to spend

    Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 18:37

    You wouldn't be saying that if he was going at better disposal efficiency. Still has had 22 touches.. good luck getting him in 👍 still won't be easy even If he does drop a little bit.

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 18:38

    Why not start your own profile instead of impersonating someone else, and then trolling in their name, seems a bit cowardly.
    Did the real wow hurt your feelings?..lol

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 18:40

      stay on topic mate and stop your passive aggressive trolling

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 18:45

        haha well my topic is, why are you posting in someone else's name?..and why would we listen to a fake troll?
        Make your own profile…whatever your name is.

          Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 18:48

          Agreed Russty

          NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn · 08/04/2018 at 19:03

          Tosser Russty disn/t have them on FSC next year maybe

            Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 19:09

            He’s probably one of the blokes that picked Bell and Cox. Guess he can’t add anything to the site other than fake trolling

              SC_Sixty6 · 08/04/2018 at 23:43

              Envy!

    Rocksta · 08/04/2018 at 19:02

    How’s your theory going now given Ablett just pinged a hammy?

    Nuggety · 08/04/2018 at 21:47

    Oop lookout the professor's back..

BrownlowBoy · 08/04/2018 at 18:30

Don't have him but is Elliot Yeo sitting on the ground throwing mud or something? 4 POINTS!!!!!

    Finnius · 08/04/2018 at 18:40

    Now on 0!!!!

      GreendaleFC · 08/04/2018 at 18:54

      -8 now. Look forward to picking him up in 3 weeks!

        Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 19:50

        Easy step up from bonner!

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 18:57

      Minus 5

TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 18:44

What a round of mayhem this has been!! Turds are littered all over the place. Billings, Zerrett and Parker have been a frigging disgrace in my side this week. If I did not have the VC on Fyfe and Titch (469 SC between them) my score would have made grown men cry. LOL

    Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 18:48

    Mine will. Will be lucky to get 2000…. I think Merrett may get chopped this week. Doesn't look good at all

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 18:52

      I hate sideways trading. But I still have all my trades and all the good rooks. Zerrett is really really tempting to replace with someone like Coniglio. I am going to pull 2 SERIOUS trades this week. Do a bit of serious housekeeping…..

        Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 18:54

        So do I. I already had to do one last week getting rid of Lambert. But trading him to Mclean was great since he got over 100 again this week

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 18:49

    I am crying with my score mate, and laughing at the same time 🙂

      hedski · 08/04/2018 at 19:55

      I was crying at half time of cats game Russty, then laughing at 3 qtr time, now I'm crying again 😭

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 19:57

        Yeah Hedski, I thought they'd get over the line, Gazza going down hurt them bad. Bad luck mate.

    Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 18:59

    Haha im playing ya in trigs happy place tophawk! Your still gonna destroy this poor bugger!

    You pulled the masterstroke of the fyfe vc. Meanwhile i went cripps into danger. Boy oh boy

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 19:58

      Hi Kyle, I just had a hunch on Fyfe going big this round. I VC'd Fyfe in round one and he produced 75 SC. I just took a leap of faith after that and backed him in. It was nice it came off. Hopefully we shall meet again later in the season! Cheers mate.

TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 18:53

Hammy for Ablett!!! WOW

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 18:56

    What absolute carnage. Looks like Gaz will miss a number of weeks if his body language was anything to go by.

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 19:01

    At least he dropped a ton for his owners before bowing out. I think they need to put him away until fully fit and save him for big games.

    BrownlowBoy · 08/04/2018 at 19:05

    Such a shame

    AuroraBorealis?! · 08/04/2018 at 19:05

    that right there is exactly why I didn’t select him.

    Holty · 08/04/2018 at 19:06

    Nooooooo. Just when i thought it couldnt get any worse this round.

SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 18:53

Gaz pulled a hammy

DavidSA · 08/04/2018 at 18:54

Boom Ablett done he's done

Rocksta · 08/04/2018 at 18:55

Elliot Yeo on -9 5 mins into the last qtr. I don’t have him thank Christ but I don’t tink I’ve ever seen anything like it. Ablett just pinged a hammy as well. His age and hammy issues was always going to be a problem.

TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 18:59

Just noticed Yeo's score. WTF? -8 SC?? I thought I had problems. Yeo owners will be absolutely spewing.

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 19:00

    A mate of mine has him..started the year really well too, he will be spewing!

    Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 19:09

    And those who dont have the yeo yeo will be licking their lips tophawk!

      Sc_Wow · 08/04/2018 at 19:10

      Don’t know if I want him if he’s capable of this junk

        Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 19:14

        thats a fair point wow. Will certainly be watching him very closely over the next few weeks tho. Hopefully the yeo of past years hasnt come back again

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 19:51

      Agreed Kyle! He was playing this stupid role in the first three quarters. As soon as he got some midfield time, bang he came alive. Take note Adam Simpson!

SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 19:04

You can't keep a good man down, take a bow Danger and Kelly.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 19:04

Dont tell me danger could be the top scorer?
Amazingly could happen
Kelly coming home like a train as well

    Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 19:07

    Certainly hope so! Need danger to top titches score after throwing the C on danger and kelly on field

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 19:11

    Danger is unbelievable. He did the same last week. Coming home like a dragster down the straight without the chute out. Coaches who did not start with him will suffer big time.

      Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 19:22

      I am very happy I didn't start him right now

      JohnDJ59 · 08/04/2018 at 20:01

      Why should we suffer big time if we didn't start Danger,as long as we have a plan to get him back in I don't see the problem.I'm going alright with Fyfe & Titch as my main mids at the moment.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/04/2018 at 19:16

    Nope menegola's takes the gig

Finnius · 08/04/2018 at 19:05

I need Danger to beat Joel Selwood by 42 points to get up in my cashie… Go you majestic human being

TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 19:14

OOOOOOOOHHH . Ryan. That is a tragedy.

    SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 19:23

    Should we take the money and run for Henry who will be on the bubble. JS should be decent with all the injuries Cats have tonight

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 19:49

      I am looking to bring Henry in this week. That Ryan ankle injury does not look great. Will cash in Ryan and his 3 rounds of points for Henry. Ended up with 2221 this week. Will take it, albeit below par.

    Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 19:26

    I just brought him in as well

      KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 19:44

      Same here 😢

Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 19:20

Langdon to Ryan looking like a great trade…

    dontblushbaby · 08/04/2018 at 19:22

    Ah nuh, injured mate

      Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 19:22

      I know I am just hurting

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 19:26

        Brought him in this week too 🙁

          Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 19:28

          My team is in absolute shambles, gonna take a miracle to get out of this one.

TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 19:26

Danger didnt get a point for a handball late looking like its gonna cost me. Losing 1 league by a point. Also needed Danger to get withing 18 pts of Gaff for another league which thought was a lock midway through the last. I hate supercoach

    Kindergarten Cop · 08/04/2018 at 19:43

    STOP WHINING!

      TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 19:48

      move along keyboard warrior

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 19:46

    He got scaled up by 2

      TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 19:47

      yup won me the league by 1. Nice consolation!

Wombaaat · 08/04/2018 at 19:27

First time under 2400 for the year with 2377 but I reckon I might move up a bit based on the chatter here.

    Rocksta · 08/04/2018 at 21:40

    You must be going alright. I’m averaging 2378 and am ranked 127th overall. Best start to a season for me by a long way.

      The Ranger · 08/04/2018 at 22:28

      NIce one Rocksta! Good luck mate.

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 21:41

    Well done to both of you…some heavy duty scoring there.

      Rocksta · 08/04/2018 at 21:53

      Cheers Russty. It’s a long season though mate. Hopefully can keep it up.

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 22:37

    That is a great start.

Rocksta · 08/04/2018 at 19:28

2360 for me this week. I’ll take that given a number of premos underferformed. I reckon par will be around 2250.

    Holty · 08/04/2018 at 20:25

    I think par will be closer to 2150-2200 this week

      KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 20:31

      Hopefully cause I only got 2160

BlueBaggerJosh · 08/04/2018 at 19:29

What happened to Ryan? I'm gonna have no cover in Fwd line if he misses weeks

    TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 19:30

    Injured his right leg after kicking a goal. Couldnt put any weight on it, not looking good

    Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 19:40

    He’ll go up to 200k after this

Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 19:38

Sitting on 2318 at the end of the round
Had a few spuds including Billings, Lobb, Danger and Bonner (I should have listened), but it was all worth it due to 6 120 including Fyfe and Titch.

On top of this, I had 10 players at 100 and won 9 of 10 leagues

I’m thinking this will be top 2%!

So many players which underperformed or were traded played up to standard or higher. I’m looking at you Menegola, O’Meara and Hibberd

Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 19:43

Got to love all the people who scored over 2200 saying they had a bad week 😂. You have no idea what a struggle in supercoach is if that is bad.

    Holty · 08/04/2018 at 20:18

    True. I scored 2249 and although got hit hard with injuries and spud premo scores, i know ive been very lucky.

    Neverweaken · 08/04/2018 at 20:27

    honestly thought 2204 was crap. Murray on the bench. Armitage 47 and Dusty as Captain. Anyone with Fyfe as captain should do well

    KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 20:30

    2160 😢😭😢😭

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 21:16

    I had a choice between Fritsch, Ryan and Venables to put on field. I don’t need to tell you who I chose.

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 23:28

      Any way you can go Lycett to Nicnat Derek? he looked pretty awesome and will get better and better.

    Kyle · 08/04/2018 at 23:13

    Didnt even crack 2000 this week :’(

    Danger C zerrett neale brayshaw stephenson all on field. greene and sicily on the pine…gonna have to trade ryan

    All in all an absolute shocked

SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 19:46

Pretty happy with 2203 consider a 38 from Cox while English in the bench with 76. I'll take anything over 2200 each week, best start to the season i had in years.

    johnno2908 · 08/04/2018 at 19:53

    Tell me about. Can’t believe I scrapped 2261. Felt like a sh*thouse week. Nervous wait ahead with my forward line though. Walters, Lobb and Ryan. Lobb might have to go this week.

      Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 19:54

      No a sh*those week is 2016…..

        johnno2908 · 08/04/2018 at 20:06

        Definitely helped having Fyfe VC

      SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 19:59

      Fwd line is a mayhem, i still have langdon who's injured and now ryan. Looking at getting Higgins or Henry. Though Henry's JS is looking good with all the injuries Cats have at the moment.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 20:14

    Solid score Doncs. Looking good. I just pipped ya with 2221. Amidst all the spud mayhem and injuries, if you can continue to be consistently scoring 2200+ week in week out in the first 5 rounds with most trades in tact, I reckon you are setting up a great foundation for the rest of the season. I know I am glad that round is over, because it was a bloody stressful one! Cheers mate

      SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 20:29

      My Anxiety was high during this Round, bloody rapt it's over only had 7 players who scored 100+ in this Round

      I might be forced to do at least one trade, can't have three non playing rookies, hopefully O'Connor gets a call next week. Will save me a trade, Henry is looking tasty though.

      Love to get an average 2200+ on the first 5 rounds. My team is traveling nicely keeping up with the pack.

        TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 20:44

        I am trading twice this week. I have to move after sitting on all my 30 trades up to this stage. I have ZGL and Ryan who will probably now both be out for 3 or more weeks. I kept ZGL as a loopholer, but with Ryan going down, its time to get to work in my forward line. Especially with under achievers like Billings and other flaky players up there. I reckon if you can get to round 6 with AT LEAST 25 trades in the kitty with a 2200+ average, with the right cash cows, and a bit of luck on the injury front, you will be in the hunt big time.

          SC_Donkey · 08/04/2018 at 20:54

          Was my plan to conserve trades until Round 5 or 6 barring any injuries. Was gonna hold on to Langdon and probably will as he's on the bubble. Ryan on the other hand he's made us at least $70K this week and injured worth moving him on and pocket the cash for future upgrade. I will be doing a lot of practice trading during the week on how i can restructure my rookies.

            TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 21:03

            I am holding Langdon purely as a loopholer, and as a bubble boy. He is now only 2-3 weeks away from coming back. Liam Ryan has to go now. That ankle injury looks pretty bad and he may be out for a while. Glad that I started with him to grab his 250 odd points and the $80K profit. Kid has a great future, he can play.

Holty · 08/04/2018 at 19:48

Gee a bit hard on Ablett. Scaled him down to 92. He was arguably the main reason they were still in the game until he did his hammy.

    Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 19:52

    Had a clanger down in the rooms looking for ice, only explanation.

      Holty · 08/04/2018 at 20:08

      Lol. I like that

Fearthebeard · 08/04/2018 at 19:52

Anyone else got the urge to cull billing’s? Geelong and gws coming up and he’s playing like trash while Heeney is looking good!?

    Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 19:54

    No… he is only down because St Kilda are.

Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 19:53

Said it already but bonner to yeo in a fortnight should be tasty.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/04/2018 at 20:02

    I like it…I like it a lot!! Hopefully Adam Simpson will now get it into his thick skull to give Yeo more midfield time after his last quarter. Not sure what Adam wanted Yeo to do in the first 3 quarters, because it didnt work.

      TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 20:58

      Very tasty indeed! And has a very nice bye too

Multi_ · 08/04/2018 at 19:58

Just put in Ryan for Langdon last week also have Ablett brutal start to the year with injuries

Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 20:09

Two tons to start the year but in a fortnight he'll be around 460k. If Bonner can get to 360k holy moly that's going to be worth going early on bonner.

    Steeeve · 08/04/2018 at 20:10

    @tophawk
    Thought i was replying

TheBenchmark25 · 08/04/2018 at 20:14

Had a nice round number of exactly 2400
Pretty happy with it. Only billings was on the downside
Fogarty from Adelaide not getting named made me bring in 102k Murphy via Sicily swing which saved menagola from being traded
Lucky week

    pod · 08/04/2018 at 20:19

    Nice one Bench

    Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 21:18

    Stand by your premiums! Nice score.

nickgonzalez771 · 08/04/2018 at 21:28

SUPERCOACH IS OPEN!

    KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 21:30

    Zerret dropped $86k 😰

      Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 21:38

      At least I still make some cash out of trading him to Coniglio

        nickgonzalez771 · 08/04/2018 at 21:48

        Ditto. What a drainer though.

          Defying_Madness · 08/04/2018 at 22:06

          It feels so bad I don't even want to make the trade

      PeteB · 08/04/2018 at 22:04

      Ignored the advice this week and traded him to Congs…pretty happy with that move right now 😀

Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 21:40

Ouch!..dropped 4000 spots in the ranks this week with my poxy score lol
Won 2 out of 10 leagues miraculously..one of them by one point haha

    Mark · 08/04/2018 at 22:06

    ok thanks for that i can sleep now

    Derek · 08/04/2018 at 22:35

    Pretty rough week. Turn it around next week.

    NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTn · 08/04/2018 at 23:00

    Hey Russty Last year I had 2000 one week then next week with the same team I had 2537 Supercoach works like that next week our turn just dump all your saints players cheers mate

      Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 23:17

      Cheers Neil, yeah mate, things can turn around quickly..already did that with the Saints..team looks better already haha, shame about Ryan, brought him in this week..good player too.

BlueBaggerJosh · 08/04/2018 at 21:41

2241, alright score I think considering I went up, albeit slightly, ranked in the low 3000's. No trades this week, Billings tempting me but don't want to test my fate.

Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 21:50

Trade Merrett or Hold?
If trade who should I get?

Current MID is

Danger, Mitchell, Kelly, Fyfe, Merrett, Banfield, Holman, Kelly

    KSinny · 08/04/2018 at 22:16

    HOLD he is a GUN!

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 23:30

    I'd be tempted to go Merrett to Cogs before he bleeds anymore.

Tyruddanaut · 08/04/2018 at 21:50

I’m very upset with Zorko this week, but hey, I forgot the plan that I had plugged into a document early in the preseason:
“Bring in Zorko late due to an easier line-up going into finals”
Oh well

What to do with Brayshaw?
Scored 32 with a BE of 33
I’m likely going to hold a week and see where that takes me

Hawks · 08/04/2018 at 21:56

What to do with Brayshaw & Dom Barry?

    Crowboy94 · 08/04/2018 at 22:54

    Don't need to trade Barry. Brayshaw I'm not sure.

TommyC99 · 08/04/2018 at 22:14

Looking forward to bringing in Yeo in a week or 2. Very nice bye and will come at a significant discount

Neverweaken · 08/04/2018 at 22:18

Caddy and Armitage out for Mitchell and a Rookie. Richards im guessing. Any other Rookie options?

    Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 22:23

    Jack Henry looked pretty good today.

      NEIL DEMONS DELIGHTS · 08/04/2018 at 22:53

      great contest Russty both of us shizen ANY PLANS

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 23:20

        Yeah it was closely contested shite Neil lol..well done you beat me 3 times :), Plans, yeah Billings gone for Juggernaut Jesse, shouldv'e started with him, he's a gun..FK all Saints, got Sicily back so maybe just the one this week.

      Neverweaken · 08/04/2018 at 23:00

      Thanks for that. Might stick with Richards. Prefer defence Rookies to Fwd Rookies. Though his DPP is nice.

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 23:22

        No worries NW, Henry is just fwd only mate.

          Neverweaken · 09/04/2018 at 12:15

          Sorry, confused with Jack Higgins. Richmond mid forward. Only played the one game though and not sure of JS
