Mitch · 06/04/2018 at 16:50

Kane Lambert and Hunter Clark out > Heeney and Barry in. Got all other rookies. Good trades?

    Crowboy94 · 06/04/2018 at 17:49

    Good trades

DacZawson · 06/04/2018 at 16:53

Fyfe into Danger for me this week but can't wait to watch my rucks, Goldy and Gawn, go head to head.
Their last game in 2016 down in Tassie was one of the most incredible games of footy I've seen, firstly because of the wind, but secondly for their ridiculous 170+ apiece Supercoach scoring. Let's hope that they can back it up.

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:54

    Nice trade.

    Won’t see too many people with the guts to pull that one.

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:57

    sorry misread that, got your name muddled with the actual trade you’re doing (and my dyslexia).

    I though you were called Fyfe and you were trading Zac Dawson to Danger.

    I know it’s Danger, but it’s also Fyfe. Only way that trade pays off, is if Fyfe snaps a leg.

      hedski · 06/04/2018 at 22:54

      Think Dac is vcing Fyfe into Danger cap red..

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:40

    Zac Dawson….brilliant footy player…..even better SC trading there mate. Put the cue in the rack! Ffs

      Daniel Z · 08/04/2018 at 11:32

      Pretty sure that's his VC / C decision for the round… No BS! No sugar coating!

Gibbs · 06/04/2018 at 16:55

Do I trade Langdon or hold?Would be my first trade used Would likely be to Murphy Via DPP! Or/ and do I trade Clark? Was leaning to holding him as got good mid rookies atm and I could trade him for Murphy via Finalyson dpp , that would lead me to having to field a Naughton/ Murphy? What do I do Lek?

    DacZawson · 06/04/2018 at 17:01

    I wouldn't be doing a trade that puts Naughton or Murphy on field. I feel like you should just hold unless you don't have Ryan or Fritsch.

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:41

      I wouldn't be giving advice Dawson. Your trading fyfe to Danger. Gtfo

        hedski · 07/04/2018 at 12:49

        Pretty sure he has the vc on Fyfe and Danger captain 66, that's how I read it.

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:57


Gibbs · 06/04/2018 at 16:56

and Thoughts on Lachie Fogarty?

haiku bob · 06/04/2018 at 16:58

Is it stupid to trade Fogarty for Ryan?
I already have Venables and Fritsch.
And which 2 of those 3 (Ryan, Venables and Fritsch) should be onfield?

    Scouser · 06/04/2018 at 20:27

    Not the worst trade Bob, fogarrt probably facing limited opportunities. As for on-field Fritsch for a steady 60 loophole for Ryan or go for glory and play him, will be up and down

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 13:15

    I did that this week Bob, no point having a stagnant rookie on the bench, unless you want them there on purpose.
    Ryan will make you good cash, whereas Fogarty, if and or when he gets another game, won't make much with his scores.

    nankthetank · 11/04/2018 at 15:17

    Did you end up getting Ryan?

Matty · 06/04/2018 at 17:03

Who’s more of a must get out of Don Barry and Murphy??

    DacZawson · 06/04/2018 at 17:17

    Dom Barry

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:53

    Barry looks a player.

    Murphy not quite at AFL standard yet

Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 17:04

Why is it still a podcast? Wasnt it intended to be a video?

    Lekdog · 06/04/2018 at 18:50

    Why not?

      Tyruddanaut · 06/04/2018 at 22:15

      You got me there…

Sc_Wow · 06/04/2018 at 17:04

Where are you ranked?

    Lekdog · 06/04/2018 at 18:50

    The wrong end

AlwynDavey · 06/04/2018 at 17:09

Should I trade hibberd to Simpson or hold? I have 29 trades and 50k, not making any other trades this week

    DacZawson · 06/04/2018 at 17:18

    Hold and reassess next week

    Lekdog · 06/04/2018 at 18:51

    I’m holding Hibbo

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2018 at 19:14

      Agreed. Hibbo is not going anywhere. Will come good.

EggSandwich · 06/04/2018 at 17:11

Trade naughton this week or wait for O’Connor to be on the bubble next week?

    DacZawson · 06/04/2018 at 17:18


Gsus · 06/04/2018 at 17:19

Naughton to Bonner? Is it worth burning the trade?
Additional info. Only interested in winning my cash league

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:00

    I don’t think so.

    Bonner’s about $100k more isn’t he? If I’m correct then they will max out at about the same profit. Some rookies come good after slow starts, Berry last year went backwards after 3 rounds and then was good, hopefully this is Naughton.

    You will miss out on a few points early, but waste your trades and you will not will win your league.

      Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:51

      Well said. Agree 100%.

    Scouser · 06/04/2018 at 20:30

    If just cash league then hold, he's already improving so just bang him on the bench, other rooks will come through so if he's still serving turds by rd 5 you should be able to trade him out

Help · 06/04/2018 at 17:20

Zorko to Dusty and Mills to Simpson?

Appreciate advice

    Rob · 06/04/2018 at 18:43


    johnno2908 · 06/04/2018 at 19:37

    1 possible top 10 midfielder, and a potential breakout player, to a top 3 mid and a top 5 defender. Sounds pretty good to me.

    Scouser · 06/04/2018 at 20:31

    Great trades for mine

Paul · 06/04/2018 at 17:20

Do you think Mcevoy could be a good pod. Looking really good this year (in 1% of teams)???

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:35

    He would be. However Ceglar is only 2 weeks away from playing. If the Hawks go with a 2 Ruck strategy, big boy is dead to us.

    Lekdog · 06/04/2018 at 18:51

    Had him in a preseason article, really rate him. HTA is high

    Dermin8r · 06/04/2018 at 21:01

    Yes, as a Hawks member I am gutted that I couldn't fit Big Boy in my ruck, really needed him to be a Ruc/Fwd (as he was Hawthorn's best goal kicker last year) definitely a solid POD, IMO.

      Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:48

      Will Ceglar come straight in?

Jim_bob321 · 06/04/2018 at 17:24

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???

Appreciate opinions community

GodMk11 · 06/04/2018 at 17:43

Are you serious? You are terrible at supercoach and are the last person who should be offering advice

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:04


    That’s what i think too. I’m just tying to bring everyone back down to my level.

    I guess people don’t know what a Red Herring is.

    And the FC stands for Fishing Club. (Although I think my mate Dave C, from last week might have had it as something entirely different)

silkyloveswomen · 06/04/2018 at 17:45

I traded ZGL to Jaiden Stephenson, this leaves me with 110k in the bank and 28 trades left. good move or nah.

Crowboy94 · 06/04/2018 at 17:49

What rookie should I bring in for Clark?
I have all the main ones, was thinking Higgins but not sure.

    Scouser · 06/04/2018 at 20:33

    Wouldn't be trading any rooks in till they're on the bubble and named, if it all goes awry then it's one tough shit fest to get out of mate, take it from someone who's been there πŸ™

      Crowboy94 · 06/04/2018 at 21:46

      Clark is about to lose money and has been dropped so I don't have much choice haha

        Connor · 06/04/2018 at 23:36

        Can't lose money if he's been dropped. Hold and use him to loop and reassess next week.

patricmassey · 06/04/2018 at 17:52

Hibberd –> Simpson and Ainsworth –> Conigilio


    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:18

    Who is Ainsworth?

    I just looked him up. 91 in the 1st round, must have had you pretty happy.

    Are you dumping him because of his 39 or is he injured/dropped?

    What did you expect for 334k? It’s like Armitage and JOM, great value, but do we expect them to be long term keepers? I don’t, they hopefully get 80-100, make some cash and then get turned into a real premo.

    Pretty sure your team will be better with the trades, but i won’t be surprised if late in the season you want to get Hibberd back and get rid of Coniglio. That equals 4 trades, when it could be 1 or 2.

Jack · 06/04/2018 at 18:03

is langdon worth trading out. If so, should it be to venables, waterman or english

    Richard · 06/04/2018 at 18:43

    ZGL reported to be out for 4 weeks im bringing in waterman has the best BE -60 odd of those 3

      Richard · 06/04/2018 at 18:44


Goose · 06/04/2018 at 18:03

Is it crazy to bring in Venables instead of Ryan to replace Langdon?
All my other rookies are sweet.
Think he could make more cash in 6-8 weeks time

    redherringfc · 06/04/2018 at 18:39

    Ryan got 38 in the 1st round.

    I see your logic, but that 115 is going to push his price up over the next 3 weeks.

    Tough call, but I say go with Venables and hope that last week was a one off from Ryan.

    Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:40

    I’m going Ryan for quick cash.

    Higgins will be on bubble in 2 weeks, won’t be many other rookies ready to cull.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2018 at 18:44

      Ryan to higgins in 2 weeks likely scenario.
      Ryans price to climb like he does over a defender.

        Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:46

        If he doesn’t have a good score this week or next, his BE in two weeks will be very high as the 115 drops out. Easy trade to Higgins then, where Venables and others will still have low BE in two weeks

Derek · 06/04/2018 at 18:38

When did O’Shea sneak back into the Carlton team?

    Lekdog · 06/04/2018 at 18:52

    He’s playing in the 2s this week

      Derek · 06/04/2018 at 22:43

      That’s what thought. I’m certain I saw his name in the final teamI

      Marty · 08/04/2018 at 20:20

      And was best for the blues.

        Lekdog · 08/04/2018 at 22:46

        Couldn’t have been hard, just have to go hard st the ball a couple of times

Tazbevo · 06/04/2018 at 18:39

Making two corrective trades. Only question is which rookie moves on to facilitate that maneuver! Andrew brayshaw or zac langdon. Zac out with hand injury makes some sense and may be out for four plus weeks but should go up nicely in value when he returns. Or… bray only likely to rise by about 28k and I'd pocket the 80k difference in their price as well. I have all other relevant rookies. The cash may be useful in a further trade next week with bringing dusty in a possible option. T kelly and holman on the field, other on field mids premos and would leave banfield and Barry on the bench probably with garlett subbed in from forward line to accommodate my two ins. Bray out or zac and why!

    Richard · 06/04/2018 at 18:49

    Tip Zac out wont be playing keep brayshaw is playing

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2018 at 18:51

No SC related but a draft Q.

Who to play on ground?

Vlastuin or DBJ from port?
Who do we think will score more?
Leaning towards DBJ.

    hedski · 06/04/2018 at 22:59

    DBJ trig.

    neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 23:18

    Yeah DBJ after last week though Vlastuin was crucified by the umps

John · 06/04/2018 at 18:53

VC Fyfe or Cripps

    Andrew · 06/04/2018 at 19:02

    Both good options, can’t go wrong with Cripps Collingwood don’t tag

      Dermin8r · 06/04/2018 at 21:04

      yeah, I have Cripps as my V with a loophole option if he tears up Collingwood, otherwise, will anoint Titch or Dusty on Sunday.

Pom · 06/04/2018 at 18:59

Do I punt Dahlhouse?
McLean seems to be taking some of his points / doggies playing shocking.
Trade to Taranto or gamble on fisher? I have Heeney petracca Devon Smith, Billings, L ryan, Giles Langdon, Fritsch.
If I go to fisher I can shift the Bont into dusty. Already have Dangr and T Mitch.

    Da Boysh · 07/04/2018 at 10:50

    i think if you were going to do it i would be making sure I get Dusty out of it otherwise it isnt worth the risk

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2018 at 19:05

Lek, thoughts on Sicily to Fisher and Naughton to Bonner? As a fellow Carlton supporter the little 🐟 excites me

Petrus · 06/04/2018 at 19:20

Def: Laird, Hibberd, McGovern, Finlayson, Deodee, Murray (Keefe, J Payne)
Mid: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Shuey, Conigs, T Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Garlett)
R: Jacobs, Gawn (Loophole – King)
Fwd: Heeney, Billings, Greene, Sicily, Ryan, Waterman (Fritsch, Gilles-Langdon)

7.8k 30 trades left

Looking at a donut on Fwd's and Greene could be absent next week too. Tempted to go:

Greene to Fisher
J Payne to Bonner

Should I just field a donut this week?

Post_MaSloane · 06/04/2018 at 19:27

Hmm, do I trade Duncan to Oliver? Probably won't but communitys thoughts?

    Jam · 07/04/2018 at 00:21

    Yes, or you chase cash and see who is on fire in 3 weeks time. Ellis yolmen at Adelaide could avg 90 for the next 3 weeks and make very good money. Unfortunately i dont have anyone underperforming to make a trade justifiable

      Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 12:48

      Ellis yolman isn’t justifiable for anyone, using 2 trades on the hope of getting 90’s. Ridiculous

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 13:09

    How good was that MaSloane? Jam has given you an undeniably flawless decision for you.

    Goto Oliver if your after overall. Otherwise if your all about the nuffie leagues hold.

Greedy AFL · 06/04/2018 at 19:44

Why don't the AFL put names on back of jumpers like every single other team sport in the world?? my guess is it would take up valuable advertising space!

    Matho · 06/04/2018 at 20:30

    Exactly. I’d like the footballers names across the back like most sports

    hedski · 06/04/2018 at 22:11

    Yep, if only I knew who number 14 was for Carlton I'd make him my captain every week.
    The bloke is amazing.

      neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 23:34


TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2018 at 19:50

Hope its a good game "tonihgt"

TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2018 at 20:22

Sam Murray on field and lookin good…..

    Moosehead · 06/04/2018 at 20:28

    Top SC scorer ATM. Funny game footy.

TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2018 at 20:43

YEP. It's official. Weitering is retarded.

    belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 10:21

    Agree. My team was so awesome good but had him in it. So sad. Like putting lemon in a perfectly good beer.

      belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 10:22

      Glad I turfed him already.

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:35

      I like lemon in my Corona!

        belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 12:38

        lol knew I'd get a bite. I hate it. Corona is nice without it. It's beer mate not la-di-da Shandi lemonade ;P

neil demons delight · 06/04/2018 at 23:38

are carlton the new easybeats Simpson is good but the other defenders are crapp

    Big Blue 75 · 07/04/2018 at 03:52

    You try playing in that backline!

    Sam Docherty is a massive blow and with Gibbs traded thats the 2 best kicks in the team gone, that takes time to replace. The field kicking is awful and not up to scratch and that is exposing the defenders bigtime.
    Can you imagine if Curnow and Casboult had a decent MIDFIELD kicking to them?
    Z.Fisher is one of very few who actually give a t0ss about tackling and chasing, too many soft and lazy players out there.

      smote · 07/04/2018 at 19:10

      Spot on BB 75
      Its not friggin rocket science. Fit blokes who run hard both ways….my kingdom for a few of those in this team.
      Plus tough contested manic pressure footy…..the stuff that got Bulldogs and Tigers players premiership medals.
      Can handle the poor skill errors but cannot cop blokes not having a crack.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 11:02

    I thought that spot was reserved for StKilda this year Neil πŸ™‚

      neil demons delight · 07/04/2018 at 11:20

      I need advice Russty I am playing the underdorks He has Murray so do I but on the pine WHO do I swap HIBBERD SHAW BONNER DOODEE or FINLAYSEN tough call thinking bonner what do you think

        SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:32

        Finlayson. Put him on pine. Swans/giants game gonna be tough. Wouldn't surprise me if Shaw spuds it against them also. Small ground he won't like that.

          neil demons delight · 07/04/2018 at 11:44

          Does make sense and Russty has Bonner also. gonna back the prems in LAIRD SHAW HIBBERD

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 11:46

        Haha you want my advice on how to beat me? here goes mate, put your worst player on the field and best on the bench hehe

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:49

          Is this in last minute rags Russty? If so you've got that game in the bag

            Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 11:54

            Hey 66, not sure, I'm playing Neil in 3 Leagues this week, looks like it's gonna be a close one !

              SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:55

              He the under achievers? Projections always look nice but mean nothing most of time.

                Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:01

                No Neil's is Demons Delight…That League was literally thrown together on the last day, so it was whoever jumped in, still looks like a competetive League though, good strong start from you in there too.

                  SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:24

                  Yeh not too bad. Kreuzer, crouch and Greene are frustrating.

                    Finnius · 07/04/2018 at 13:09

                    did you trade Green or hold 60?

                    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 13:13

                    Toby 'flog' Greene is Gawn!

          neil demons delight · 07/04/2018 at 12:39

          KNEW YOU WOULD BITE// good luck

arz · 06/04/2018 at 23:41

Lek – do i trade bell to mclean (f5) or to cogz (m6)?

    Big Blue 75 · 07/04/2018 at 03:40

    cogz (m6) for sure, made the move myself.

Big Blue 75 · 07/04/2018 at 03:38

Z.Fisher was 263k with a BE of -48 before last nights game.
What is Z.Fisher's price after his 76?
Kid needs to bulk up but I was impressed, if only his teammates tackled and pressured like him, does not panic with the ball either.

    Rabbits16 · 07/04/2018 at 10:30

    hes a twig hey

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 10:54

    Hey Big Blue, yeah he's a skinny 19 yr old Kid but jeez I think he's gonna be a good player for a long time once he matures.
    His projected score was 69 with a projected rise of $52.5k so with a 76 maybe around 55-58k? Cheers.

      Daniel Z · 08/04/2018 at 11:34

      I think his price rise will be closer to 40k, so end up just over 300k.

        Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 14:02

        If he's exceeded his projected score, why wouldn't the price rise be the same or a bit more than SC Gold has predicted it to be?
        Why would it be less?

Rabbits16 · 07/04/2018 at 08:24

read devon smith and hurley had scans during the week and may not play?

    Rabbits16 · 07/04/2018 at 10:09

    serious rabbits? thats no good. hope they play

JEL · 07/04/2018 at 09:11

Take Garlett's 64, or put Ryan (WCE) on field?

    INPieman · 07/04/2018 at 09:44

    Take it

    pod · 07/04/2018 at 09:45

    I'm willing to gamble Garlett's 62 so I'm with Ryan as I think now he'll be more confident after last week. Keep in mind the young Cats defenders will be aware of him and could quite easily shut him down. Last week they struggled against the tall Hawks like Rough and Gunston who won the game for them.

AC27 · 07/04/2018 at 10:12

Sicily to Bonner and Bont to Danger
Thoughts in this trade?

    belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 10:31

    I'm not so sure about bonner, one good score with no history. have to hold Sicily I think. Why not wait and see what danger does this week. If he is likely to go down in price, your worried about Bont going down too I guess but you haven't really given him much of a chance yet. Hmmm I dunno You need to look and see if you can find some other way of getting Danger in in two or three weeks first. Then maybe yes do it if you dont think you can.

    pod · 07/04/2018 at 10:58

    You aren't going to see Danger for less than $680k unless he has a couple of shizin games or is injured during a game. I'm predicting a massive score this week from him. Last week was a warm up for him, he's ready to rip the game apart as we know he can. That play last week when he stole the ball from Cyril was unbelievable, never seen anyone do that to Cyril. Get him in asap!

      Moosehead · 07/04/2018 at 11:18

      That steal from Cyril was excilerating.
      Maybe SC should allow Danger to be paid off in instalments.

      belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 12:21

      That's true. But Should have got him last week now may as well wait one more week to see if he is going down a lot or a little.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:33

    Get danger in. He's a 160 this week, spent 42% time fwd against hawks and still posted a 130. Keep Sicily. Don't chase Bonner.

Stupid Coach · 07/04/2018 at 10:21

Should I trade Townsend to Parfitt, Christensen or Ellis Yoleman or keep Townsend and trade ZGL to Venables (already have Fritsch, Gowers and Ryan).

VC.- Gawn or Laird.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:45

    I don't understand what your trying to do. You'll fail with all those mid pricers mentioned. Cut your losses and downgrade to a rookie to get cash generation. Pocket cash and upgrade to premium asap

    Stupid Coach · 07/04/2018 at 14:55

    Thanks SC_Sixty6 really appreciate the advice. Just trying to get someone at F3 that is a more consistent and better scorer than Townsend . Those that I have mentioned are averaging 90 and also about to go up in price which I can turn into a premium later. I don't have enough cash to turn him into a premium like Heeney.

Fono · 07/04/2018 at 10:34

JOM to Coniglio or save the trade?

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 10:48

    This would be the week to do it Fono if you want him, no point waiting.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:34

    Yup get him in. Will score better and raise in price hell of alot quicker.

Westy · 07/04/2018 at 11:00

Hey Lekdog,
How long have you been playing Supercoach, how many hours a week would you and the rest of the guys devote to the community and to your teams?
Really appreciate what you guys do.

SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 11:29

Hey Lek! Just a thought maybe a Q&A thread will be beneficial for the whole community with myself and Wow answering questions seeing as we are so respected here with no BS advice or sugar coating.

    Tickets on myself · 07/04/2018 at 12:01

    dont agree

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:16

      Look at your name. At least provide substance in your comments rather than a cocky flog that doesn't give anything to the community

    AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2018 at 12:08

    If you want to do your own Q&A start your own website.

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:15

      In the process pal. Will be limiting the duds that ask stupid questions too.

        Steven · 07/04/2018 at 12:34

        How will ya let us know the name of your site? Just in a comment or….? Curious as I think you guys do give solid advice just reckon you might get a better reception if you went about it in a bit of a nicer manner. Cheers

          Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 12:36

          Yeah mate website and podcast in the works. It’s pretty simple, if you choose to listen to the advice you will improve. Chose to ignore and have the same dud years as always

            SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 12:42

            Imo advice and opinions are there for people to decide on their own not to follow it, but give them a bit of an idea of which path the must go. The thing I've noticed with some people, they come here and follow what everyone is saying without doing any research.

              Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 12:45

              Those ‘some people’ are the majority. No one does research, and they get upset when they are provided solid advice that has been researched

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:39

          Nicer manner? Not seeing anything rude about my posts. Just don't like the mentality people have when they ask for advice and when given advice they hiss and spit chips that it's not what they wanted to hear.

          As I said. "No BS! No sugar coating!" Probably the sites slogan.

        neil demons delight · 07/04/2018 at 12:48

        Call it fantasy supercoach works

Beezneez · 07/04/2018 at 11:58

Have to trade out Crouch. with only $25k and 30 trades. The options I am thinking of are:

1 Straight trade to Oliver.
2. I also have Sicily at F4 (covered by Garlett's 65). Was thinking Sicily to Taranto and Crouch to Martin – have Danger Tich, Kelly, Fyfe
and Cripps.
3. Crouch to Coniglio and Sicily to Taranto with $218K left.
4. Crouch to Coniglio and A Brayshaw (Freo) to Taranto leaving $14K – this would mean putting Taranto at m7 and Holman to the
bench. I had originally thought of doing this trade and substituting Garlett to have Taranto on field in the fwd line (replacing Sicily).
Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for this trade. This trade will mean I will keep Sicily.

All advice says to hold Sicily but I kinda like having Taranto. Could have another look and do the trade next week as both should have similar prices – although I hate sideways trading.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:20

    Tough one Beez cause I think the best one to go for is the one that gets Martin in, but it could also backfire, (Sicily to Taranto).
    Sicily although a hothead, could still average 100 if he can stop his brain from boiling during matches, Taranto, only played 12 games at 66 av, what if he goes back to that?..then you're stuck with a dud.

      Beezneez · 07/04/2018 at 12:45

      Thanks for the input Russty. I am now thinking of keeping Sicily. I could find another way of getting Martin as I'm only $23K short or saving a trade and going to Oliver or Coniglio for cash generation.. .

Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:08

Who to start? need to start 2 out of these 5 Kelly Holman Brayshaw Banfield Barry. Kelly will be 1 im thinking Brayshaw over Holman maybe for 2nd spot??

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:12

    Kelly and Holman for me, Holman has the runs on the board, Brayshaw doesn't yet.

    Beezneez · 07/04/2018 at 12:24

    Kelly and Holman.

      Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 12:38

      There is no reason not to start Holman and Kelly, they have proven they can get points

        belly button fluff · 07/04/2018 at 12:41

        What he said. Two thumbs up!

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:47

    Just think Brayshaw and even Barry to go well. But Holman does have the runs on the board

      Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 23:14

      Hope you didn’t go bray and Barry

neil demons delight · 07/04/2018 at 12:33

Full house KELLY / HOLMAN why brayshaw shake could be wrong though He is very good good luck with your choice mate

SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 12:34

I'm confused, when people say "sideway" trading is no no.

Let say you have a premo that's underperforming, wouldn't it be better to swap that player with another premo who's performing well. And where else can you go, the player is already premo. You can't downgrade to a mid-pricer or a rookie.

I would understand if you have a mid-pricer that's underperforming, you'd want to trade that player to either a premo or a rookie for cash gen. A mid-pricer to another mid-pricer to me is more of a sideway.

I feel the word "sideway" are being too used and overrated.

    Ken · 07/04/2018 at 12:39

    Thats true but what if the so called premo dominates the first few weeks and is poor the back end..
    Remember Montagna dominating a couple years back the first few weeks and then struggled, same with Bont

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 12:46

      Then ideally you want to trade them to another premo that's performing and to me that's not sideway trading specially at the back end of the season. It's smart trading to get a better output for your team.

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:51

        Yeah agree Donk, this week especially before the underperformer loses cash…and as you said later in the season as some are losing form and others gaining it.
        Sideways is just a word, you've gotta do what works for you.

          SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 13:05

          I agree russty, 1st two rounds are corrective trades either premos or rookies imo. Not so much for mid-pricer, we all need accept the fact of what you paid for the mid-pricer is what you get. They smash it for one or two weeks and then have a big turds for a few games. Just have to hold on to those mid-price players until your rookies have fatten up and move them on to premo. I see so many people in here rage trading mid-price to another mid-price.

            Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 13:22

            I am guilty of exactly that this
            Armitage to Ellis-Yoelman, reasoning is I'm hoping CEY will hit 400k by round 6 and Armo could stagnate and take much longer to make less money.
            Also, I think the Saints will cop some severe hammerings early this season, and Crows will be dishing one out starting this week, reckon CEY has good js for a good month at least also.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/04/2018 at 12:42

    It's people like Dawson that trade fyfe to danger……just dumb. I agree what you say donkey, it's just some sideways trades are stupid compared to others.

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2018 at 12:50

      I guess depending on the situation, if Fyfe was injured and underperforming like he did last year. Yea i can agree with that, but if it was in the first couple of rounds Then I'd say it was a waste of a trade. Also comes down to your premos role if his role has changed and affecting his output.

        Dean · 08/04/2018 at 20:31

        Agree Donky I'm a prime example.
        I went from Hibberd to Simpson and Menagola to R Gray this week and granted Hibbered scored a 92 to Simpsons 97 and Menagola scored 128 and Gray scored a 103 – Call it what you will, the point is I am still happy with my trades as I believe Simpson & Gray will be a lot more consistent as opposed to Menagola & Hibberd.

Harry · 07/04/2018 at 12:38

Fyfe Captain?

    Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:46

    Don't have Danger, Dusty or Titch Harry?

      Harry · 07/04/2018 at 12:50

      I have dusty and titch, but afraid of potential tags….
      Fyfe averaging 135 against Suns

        Sc_Wow · 07/04/2018 at 12:52

        Put the vc on him

        Russty_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:53

        Trust your gut then mate, just hope they don't put Holman on him,,lol, he'll be tackling him every 2 minutes.

          Harry · 07/04/2018 at 12:56

          Put the VC on Cripps…
          Last week Holman tagged Cripps yet scored nicely

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 13:01

    l like Gawn today to.

    Daniel Z · 08/04/2018 at 11:27

    Naaaah, I'm going Sicily. Or Olango, haven't decided yet.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/04/2018 at 12:44

Beams out.

    INPieman · 07/04/2018 at 12:49

    If you have him perfect excuse to get rid of him

Don · 07/04/2018 at 13:33

Is it worth doing JOM to Bonner?

Tim · 07/04/2018 at 13:35

Bonner or Murphy? Who will be better for cash generation in the long term?

    King · 10/04/2018 at 13:18

    Murphy cause he is way cheaper

johnno2908 · 07/04/2018 at 13:47

Pulled the trigger on Brayshaw to Bonner. Only time will tel if a good trade. So now the question is Holman or Finlayson on field?

terry · 07/04/2018 at 16:51

Banfield got awarded a free kick, but no stats in the kick column, hows that work?

    terry · 07/04/2018 at 16:53

    actualy maybe he handbaled instead haha

    Better than pieman · 08/04/2018 at 08:20

    Sweet Jesus….

Jim · 07/04/2018 at 18:37

Is it worth trading out naughton to loophole murrays 95? brayshaw and oliver are gonna leave my score in a bad spot, thoughts?

    Lekdog · 08/04/2018 at 13:17

    Don't do it

Corey · 07/04/2018 at 18:56

Do we take Garlett’s score (64) over Ryan

Neverweaken · 07/04/2018 at 23:52

same question. take Garletts 64 or ryan?

Russty_ · 08/04/2018 at 00:16

Garlet got 61, 36 and 64.
Ryan got 38 and 115.
I'd rather bet on the guy who you already know can ton up, thinking Garlett is a bit Pickett like from last year.

Rabbits16 · 08/04/2018 at 17:47

DANGERFIELD PANIC STATION. my captain with 30 close to half time

JEL · 08/04/2018 at 19:24

Bugger, looks like I'll lose to Lekdog by about 100, the difference between having the C on Danger, or having it on Fyfe or Titch.
Got my loopholing wrong, paying the price.

    Marty · 08/04/2018 at 20:17

    Did the same. Ended on 2274 could have been so much higher. JKelly killing me underperforming.

      Whatyasmokin · 08/04/2018 at 20:35

      Really a 90+ is 'killing you' and you finish with 2274………….much drama.

Dean · 08/04/2018 at 21:00

Will be interesting to see what the average is, I scored 2296

Tim · 09/04/2018 at 21:06

Already have Billings, Walters, D. Smith, McLean

Who do I bring in next in the FWD line?

    Daz · 09/04/2018 at 21:34

    Buddy Heeney

      Tim · 09/04/2018 at 22:06

      Thoughts on Gray and Greene over Heeney?

        King · 10/04/2018 at 13:15

        Greene is too much a risk in finals as he is prone to getting suspended during them

KellaKonquerer · 10/04/2018 at 10:31

A Brayshaw out for another rookie?


Dean · 10/04/2018 at 17:17

On my forward bench I have ZGL & Ryan and both are out, I am now considering to trade Ryan out to bring in Henry or Ratugolea as it looks as though Ryan will be out for several weeks.

Thoughts community?

Joe T · 12/04/2018 at 15:26

Trade Dow to Higgins/Coffield next week, or trade him out now to Ed Richards via DPP?
