The Standing Room Round 4

Published by Lekdog on

Community my teams suck, Supercoach and Carlton alike.

Let’s talk some footy…

  • Holman on field is unfortunate but we’ll all have him there.
  • Naughton holders, well done. My advice was to hold, even more well done if you played him.
  • How good is Finlayson?
  • How good is Murray?
  • Rookies have been really good this year, it makes me happy.
  • Premos have been confusing, Elliot Yeo are you good or bad!?!?!
  • Rebuilding a club, takes a while or have we (Carlton) done it wrong? (I’m a believer but gee whiz it hurt losing to Norf

P.S glad I could trade Lambert into form for those who have him

On ya lek. In other news reminding any Carlton supporter who they go for should just about count as abuse aswell. We get it folks, we are terrible

HarryH

It's really disappointing isn't it and not just limited to this forum. Gee the amount of trolls on Herald Sun is amazing. I hardly read the comments anymore. I don't post all that often but read through this site multiple times per week and notice how the tide has turned. I now look for the usual suspects for concerted comments such as Pieman, Derek, Kev etc who provide genuine insight.

As to the footy, I hope Lobb and/or ZGL return next week otherwise I'm in trouble in the fwd line as have Venables. He was actually on track to post his first serious score for the year! What other cheap fwd options do we have on the bubble next week?

Yo-Yo Yeo

None that I know of HarryH, unless you wanna go early on Guelfi who plays his 1st game. FWIW he ticks a lot of boxes

Derek

How did Zac Bailey look?

TOPHAWK1

Shocking. Will get dropped this week. 15SC. Kicked just one behind.

AuroraBorealis?!

Honestly he showed some flashes, i think he'll be a good player in the future… just maybe not for SC.

Derek

I also started Lobb. Decided to trade him to Coniglio this week. I’m ok with that trade except it leaves me two forward rookies on field.

His knee injury didn’t look good last week. I thought the worse for the guy when he did it. He came back on but he shouldn’t have.

Defying_Madness

Not sure how to get rid of Lobb next week if he doesn't play. Only have 110k in the bank and McLean and Gray are set to increase by a lot

Valens_FC

Decisive and absolutely fair. I’ve never really understood the mentality of having to rely on baiting and bullying others to raise one’s self esteem. Some very odd fish out there talking to themselves and impersonating others!

Whatyasmokin

Its pretty obvious their mental health is in jeopardy with crap like that. I pity them , go get help lads. Theres also a thing people seem to have forgotten.

Dont feed the trolls. Its very simple, if they get nothing, they dont come back at least very often. Its kind of immature/naive to play their game honestly.

Valens_FC

You couldn’t have substantiated your own name any better with this warrior effort. Cop your ban and move on. Sounds like there’s plenty of alternate sites out there where brave men like you who want to troll are embraced.

Sandyf62

That's a bit of a shock JD,I thought Russty was pretty good and seemed to help the new ones out quite a bit.Lets hope Lekdog sees your post and lets him back in.If he got out of hand I'm sure he's sorry about it.

neil demons delight

disappointed to hear that. Russty is value to supercoach

Sc_Wow

Yeah Ruusty was great, would be good if these bans could be lifted. I think they were thrown out a bit. Now that everyone’s aware I think the behaviour will decrease

neil demons delight

There's one thing for sure you know your fantasy game and your remarks are a big help Just the in fighting that I don 't enjoy. Just ignore offensive comments and do what you do best advice. And forget that make believe parrott sitting on your shoulders mate We all know he is a figment of imagination .

Sc_Wow

Cheers who’s this parrot you refer to though?

James

Two rooks entered last chance saloon this week and only one will leave. Congrats Naughton and bye bye Brayshaw.

paul

This kid was all the talk at freo before the season started he must have potential.For me as long as they play him he stays.I have learnt my lesson not to off load too early.

paul

Plan A was he Brayshaw upguard round six to Danger. I have keeped 350 in the bank for this hoping danger would drop to around 650/680. Plan B was to use Kelly but he is playing so good i really would like to keep him at M8 and focus on other areas first.

Whatyasmokin

Wise move I reckon, im in no rush to burn my trades on could be opportunities that may not even have js.

Made his BE he stays.

Post_MaSloane

Hibberd better ton up today, he's been pretty Dissapointing. My boy Duncan in for a big one against the saints as well

TOPHAWK1

Agreed MaSloane. I have Hibberd too, and he needs to start delivering better scores from here. All eyes on you today Hibbo! Get us a juicy tonne please.

Derek

It wouldn’t surprise me. There will be a long list in the redeemers category this week. All the trigger traders will be frustrated.

TOPHAWK1

Yep. The trigger traders will be pulling their hair out. Just used two trades to this point. Both this round.

Dom Barry out for Crowden, and Liam Ryan out for Henry.

I started with Zerrett and Hibbo. Did it cross my mind to trade Zerrett out at certain stages? Of course it did, but you just don't do it. Save those trades and back your premos in. ALWAYS. I bet there were thousands of coaches who flicked Yeo last week. Well, those players have been punished into submission as he pumped out a majestic 150 last night. Hope they all learnt their lesson.

Let's hope Zerrett can also be a redeemer. That would make my day!!

Derek

what about the Lambert owners

TOPHAWK1

Post Lambert owners will be licking their wounds as well. You just need to back your premos in.

Let's see how many coaches jump off Heath Shaw after this week. That's two poor efforts in a row now. I did not start with him this year as I felt he was just getting too long in the tooth. I hope he comes good, but because of his age, he could really become a problem.

Derek

shaw is actually playing well. Has a good mop up role and he is getting plenty of the ball. He just isn’t getting the SC like he used to.

He did roll his ankle in 2nd quarter and it clearly slowed him down.

At the moment he is as good as anyone. Laird is in another world of course.

Ryan (fre) came back to earth.

The 3 rookies are doing good and will hate having to trade them

AuroraBorealis?!

Ryan was playing a bit of a shutdown role on Greene and he copped a knee to the back in the first quarter. Considering he didn't really do an amazing job on him i think Ross Lyon will just let him go back to his rebounding role. Fingers crossed anyway

Deckcrow

Yes, he looked very uncomfortable in that role on Greene, hopefully he did enough to not be the default shutdown

BockChoy

I've stayed clear of Simpson for the past few years because of the "long in the tooth" risk. I check the DEF rankings and see he's there at #2 again, defying father time!

Sc_Wow

The pig is hungry he will go 110

Derek

He won’t go bad

Chief

How long is Venables out for?

Jeff

I heard it’s a similar injury to his teammate Ryan last week!

TOPHAWK1

Rumours have it that it could be 6-8 weeks. This is NOT officially confirmed though.

TommyC99

Kruez and Howe really hurt this week. Kruez really doesnt look right at all. Would like to trade him Grundy or Nic Nat (nice bye) but im down to 26 trades due to trading Kelly last week so i might need to hold. Dusty VC saved me so i'm still on track for a 2200+ score (barring anymore turds) Big day of footy ahead!

gator59

I hear you brother.. Have them too.. Kruz has to go

Finnius

yup I had both, and walters underwhelming. Smith not looking good either. Looking at my worst round to date at this rate. Just when I thought I had all my problems sorted!

Derek

Went to the swans game yesterday, great game of footy. I can’t quite work the swans defence out. Last week Mills took most of the kick ins, was the loose man and they were always looking for him running past for the clearing kick. Very similar to round 1.

But last night it was McVeigh who was doing all that and Mills spent most of time on Dahlhaus or the Bont.

Mills was lucky to get 60, but managed to clear the ball that ultimately set up the last goal and boosted his score to 84.

Holding Mills is going to be a roller coaster this year.

It shows the importance of the role that the defenders play and who gets that running half back, clearing role does well.

Off to see the Hawks today

TOPHAWK1

CARN THE MIGHTY HAWKERS!!

theRealPod

Mills & Dahl both are giving very little to justify keeper status. The sooner those rookies fatten the better.

Derek

Mills has been ok. But no midfield

theRealPod

I thought Horse would be rotating him through mids and some games solely defender, it's a worry.

I'm kicking myself I chose Dahl over McLean but I'm sure I'll end up keeping him. Dahl played so well last week in mids I thought here we go..

Jim_bob321

Hey community,
After the failed Buddy VC, what does the community think of Gawn C instead of Titch due to Bernie Vince

Brad

Yes, very tempting! Just have a feeling with the TMitch tag, he will be looking at around 100 and also think Gawn can go big. My other option is Danger and the chance of him monstering with getting more mid time with Gazza out. I need a three sides coin!

Yo-Yo Yeo

I'd still go Titch. McEvoy is no slouch

Derek

I’ll give Tmitch the C.

I’d hate to give it to Gawn or Oliver as I’m going to game to cheer the Hawks home.

Oh dang. I also have Petracca and Fritsch in my team as well

TheGreatBozza

What’s wrong with Kruz? I didn’t see the game so I’m not sure if it’s the injury or just Carlton are getting hammered. It’s killing me that I went him over Grundy, especially since I’m a Pies fan. Does the community think it’s worth a trade?

Patch

We'll discuss that during the podcast no doubt – I'm leaning yes at this stage but still haven't looked at all the stats.

Brian

He is carrying injuries mate. That hard enough for a normal person but when your 11 foot tall the problem just gets amplified. Not sure about that trade. You will be locking in a big loss

TheGreatBozza

I’m never one for trading throughout the year unless a player misses multiple weeks, it’s just hard to put up with these scores. He was on fired R1 pre injury so hoping he can’t turn it around

Derek

It’s like Kelly missing this week and maybe next. I don’t mind if they miss a week or two as long as it makes them better and they come back 100%

Sc_Wow

Trade away, Kruser is going to take along time to get back to his best, look at his 2016 season, played all year and avg 73

Yo-Yo Yeo

Carlton did play 2 rucks back in those days I believe but fair point wow

Corey

On that note, Any more news on Josh Kelly?

Sc_Wow

word was possible OP

Sc_Wow

I'm keen to sit back with a beer today and see danger go nuts, 160+ would be great

Maverick66

yeh celebrate

Sc_Wow

66? Welcome back old friend

JEL

WTF is going on this round.
There have been some fearful floggings for teams that didn't turn up.
Carlton, Lions, Gold Coast so far, even the Crows had a blow out.

Quite a few SC favorites in teams that were spanked.

DavidSA

Carlton
Brisbane
Gold Coast

I did say it before and will say it again, they are all stuck in bottom 6 for many more years.
The AFL having 18 clubs has effected Brisbane and Carlton the most. They both were bottom 4 when the 2 new teams came and diluted the comp. Gold Coast did not make good decisions after its first year debut and Gary Ablett did not lead that club like he could have.

Brisbane and Gold Coast should amalgamate and then bring in a Tasmanian club.

Derek

How did GWS get it right?

DavidSA

The State of NSW has has the best young talent pool for nearly a decade now Derek.

Brad

Captain choice alert – TMitch, Gawn or Danger…. community please help! It will decide the round for me.

theRealPod

Danger first choice for me out of those three.

DavidSA

Mitchell going 140+ 4 weeks straight is a unlikely stat against Melbourne who have a couple of players who can tag but will they is the ultimate question.

Gawn vs Big Mac I would not consider Gawn to go 130+ in that duel

Gotta be Danger

But go with your gut mate, good luck this round 👍

Brad

Cheers guys! I can make arguments for all 3… Will lock in Danger as my gut call. Gazza out, Geelong need the win, St Kilda are terrible. Appreciate the guidance and good luck to all

Sc_Wow

Podcast update.

The space is coming along well, almost completely set up. Getting excited to be able to add more for the community. Not trying to take over the podcasts Lek does but just going for something a little different.
Get excited
https://imgur.com/a/vcdBP

Shake_n_Bake_

Had Fyfe as vc have the choice of Titch Selwood Gawn and Oliver today as capt would it be silly to consider Selwood at the catery thinking Steele to Danger. Selwood loves these conditions. Oliver for the same reasons??

Ja191

I’d go titch, Tag will likely go to Selwood and he can’t handle a tag. In saying that it’s a gut call he could go big. Risk = selwood safe = titch

Shake_n_Bake_

Bernie Vince on Titch maybe.

INPieman

Weather conditions suitable for ducks. So go Selwood

TOPHAWK1

It's early, but a decent start for Zerrett! Half way mark in the first quarter 6 disposals for 21 SC. Keep going son!

Shake_n_Bake_

Looks like Ebert paying close attention Hawk.

TOPHAWK1

Ebert is trying, but Merrett looks like he has his measure. 37 SC at quarter time. I hope he can keep going Shake.

Defying_Madness

Merret too good

dontblushbaby

Matt Guelfi looking good atm for a 117k FWD Rook

Yo-Yo Yeo

Rucks are interesting indeed. I've got to honest I think the set and forget has some serious flaws. Problem is it's very hard to predict the best 2 ruckmen from one year to the next. With 4 weeks of hindsight, it's clear now that it's Grundy & Gawn. But who guessed that? A small few maybe.
That's why I like what Derek done by having Lycett R2. You make a small profit, but more importantly you get to see who the best 2 are before committing to a premium.
FWIW I have Lycett R3 (bought him in after Kruezer injury) I will be trading Kreuzer down this week, so I can fix my midfield which is falling apart. Having Armitage and Kelly out meant I had to field 4 rookies.
How's everyone else going with their rucks? Happy so far? Anyone nail Gawn/Grundy?

INPieman

My young lad picked Grundy Gawn & has just about nailed everything else. Like most the thought of Cox playing was off putting. But he's a big midfielder & a damn good one who gets hit outs. Also didn't expect him to be this good yet

JEL

Got the same combo John, so long as between them they are getting about 200/week, I'll worry about fixing and upgrading other parts of my team.

Marty

Happy with Martin and Gawn. Set and forget works

BockChoy

Same. Gawn was a no-brainer; I like how Nank has been consistent and held his value. I am nervous about Dimma admitting we can't keep going with Grigg as R2 and may look to bring Soldo in as well. I would much rather see Chol come in as an agile CHF who can spot in the ruck now and then.

AuroraBorealis?!

This is the first Port game i've watched this season but i must say, Robbie Gray looks GOOD. I think he's a must have this year, and he'll be my next upgrade target for the forward line

INPieman

Agreed

Finnius

Hogan is an absolute weapon. Involved in everything. Need to find a way to get him in.

theRealPod

I'm with you. Is there any doubters still? He is unstoppable!

Jim_bob321

Why is MAxy Gawn getting scaled down so much wtf

Defying_Madness

Hoping my 120k in the bank is enough to go Lobb to Hogan

BockChoy

Watching the Dees/Hawks game yesterday, it was obvious that the Melbourne forward line was dysfunctional. While Hogan is playing well frolicking through the midfield, I don't think the Dee's can afford to keep this going.

Sc_Wow

With you on that one bok, think about how you want your teams to look at the end of the year. Hogan started great but not sure he keeps it up. Sorry if this offends any hogan owners. Not my intention

theRealPod

Anyone go C on Titch? I can't remember last time he wasn't leading SC scorer during the game.

Ja191

me lol

Finnius

Hibberd and Kreuzer to Hogan and Grundy next week. The only corrective trades I will give myself this year.

theRealPod

Hibbo turd again. Good trades if you can do it.

TOPHAWK1

I am seriously considering punting Hibbo out of my side after that disgraceful first half Finnius. If he does not produce a 60 point second half, the planning and plotting will start to get him outta there for either Hogan or Kade Simpson. I have had a gut full of these inept performances. We will probably cop flak for sideways trading, but when you have a dude which produces lumps of faeces 4 rounds in a row, I reckon you need to start making tough decisions. I hate sideways trading, but only do it if I have a premo which is turning into a serious liability. Right now Hibberd has entered that territory. Hibbo has 2 quarters to silence me.

AuroraBorealis?!

Does a kick in from full back count as a disposal in supercoach? I've seen Sicily take a couple and not get any kicks added to his stats

Defying_Madness

Got to kick to yourself for it to count

Yo-Yo Yeo

Only if he plays on I believe

AuroraBorealis?!

Ok, thanks guys

TOPHAWK1

Titch has come down to earth! Just 37SC at half time. Many of my opponents have Titch as captain. Praying that Danger (C) can go massive today. I need him to salvage my score after by backline resembles a cow paddock. Turds everywhere.. Hibbo dropping yet another turd, Bonner poor, and Doedee very ordinary. The way its going my back line is going to get a serious clean out in coming weeks.I am running out of patience. The broom is going through the joint.

DavidSA

statistics say that scoring 140+ 3 weeks in a row is very rare let alone a 4th week straight.

DavidSA

Cannot wait for my double upgrade tonight
356k in the bank
Fisher and Bonner peaked already one would think.

Sc_Wow

Hibberd has to go doesn’t he? Even considering sideways to Yeo. He makes me sick

DavidSA

what happened to him?
I have not been able to watch Melbourne yet, is it Lever that takes way some of his game?

Lazza

Lever is a trade dud so far … not taking anything from anyone … especially the opposition .. Hibberd way down on last year… not liking the competitive game that most teams are bringing to the forward line.

Beezneez

He has the blight of players leaving the Crows – serves him right.

TOPHAWK1

Certainly looks that way. He is becoming a blight to my side.I am seriously starting to run out of patience.

dognino

I’ve been holding and praying, but he just looks terrible. Not sold on many backliners just yet, considering a swing from Hibberd to McLean

Jim_bob321

What the heck is up with Gawn's SC stats…. getting absolutely robbed

DavidSA

60 something hit outs but the Hawks went noink and collected more than 70% of them

DavidSA

wow Jelwood and Danger getting pillaged in SC this arvo
Kelly on 50 @ 1/2 time is a bloody mystery

Rick Grimes

Venables to Coffield, no brainer.

Defying_Madness

Maybe Brayshaw instead to get some cash

AuroraBorealis?!

If billings doesnt get going soon he's being rage traded. Not getting inside mid time and he's in a shit team. I'm seriously running out of patience.

Sc_Wow

I’ll bring him in for 300k

Jim_bob321

Billings to Parfitt confirmed

Crowboy94

He wont even be worth trading in…

Crowboy94

Billings and Hibberd are officially crap!!! Rage Trade time!!!!!

Rick Grimes

I have both as well. Gonna be hard to stay away from that T button.

INPieman

Might be joining you there

theRealPod

Yep what a crap week

Beezneez

I have them both as well. Billings to McLean or Gray but who do you trade Hibbo to? Have Hurley and Laird. Maybe Simpson or Savage maybe better bet. I could trade him to Gray or McLean via DPP with Sicily but I'm trying to get 5 reasonable players in the fwd line instead of playing two rooks now that Ryan is out.

BlueBaggerJosh

what a bad week! gonna be lucky to reach 2100

Rick Grimes

Been feast or famine, that's for sure.

AuroraBorealis?!

And boy am i hungry

Holty01

Yep same. Bad sc score. Carlton were embarrassing. Terrible week for me

Richard

First 2 weeks chocies Second 2 weeks boiled lol lolls.
How ye all travelin' score wise me lucky to hit 2000

Rick Grimes

Maybe 2100 odd.

Marty

Billings to Gray. Had enough of him

INPieman

P#s#ed off I reversed trades. Billings might not be so lucky this week

Marty

Yeh I have Gray in and out all week but needed to get rid of Lobb. 23 possessions is great but not at 56% efficiency. Decision to make later in the week.

josh

is bonner worth holding on to for a bit longer?

Whatyasmokin

Yep, fix others first and pick someone off during the byes. He went over his break even of 38. Bet plenty traded out omeara after round , look at him now. (Im not comparing his scoring potential to that of omearas just saying anything can happen and bonner aint bleeding yet)

Sc_Wow

Get Yeo in

josh

have 155k in the bank and my plan was to straight swap bonner to yeo this week, unfortunately yeo isnt going to drop as much as i had hoped for after his big round!

Rick Grimes

At least Danger will be cheap soon. Just need to get some cash together. Zorko, I'm looking at you son.

Connor

Parfitt just got +4 for a tackle…

I guess "impact" is continuous throughout game as long as you start well!
AARRGHHH I love SuperCoach…

Rick Grimes

Aren't tackles worth 4?

Whatyasmokin

Theres variables ie where on the ground the tackle is performed and whether its offensive or defensive, but yes the base rate for a tackle is 4 points.

theRealPod

Paritt thrived in conditions, veri impressive. Menegola looking good for top 6 fwd again.

Ken

Who will average the most in each line..def, mid, ruck, forward…what are your predictions??

Mine is (not in any particular order)

Def: Laird, Hurley, Yeo, Savage, Rance, Simpson

Mid: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Oliver, Fyfe, pendles, selwood, Gibbs

Ruck: Grundy, Gawn

Fwd: Walters, McLean, Buddy, heeney, Gray, greene

Marty

Laird, Dusty? Grundy and Buddy for mine. Depends if Danger gets going.

Rocksta

Laird, Titch, Gawn, Heeney

gator59

Thank f$%k this weeks over

TOPHAWK1

Not wrong Gator. What a nightmare round. I am staring down the barrel of a sub 2000 score……….1994 to be precise. That is the worst round I have had outside the byes since 2013. I am ropable. Billings, Hibberd, Petracca, Henry on field, Holman on field, Bonner, Doedee. What a shocker. Lucky I have 28 trades. Billings, Hibberd, and Bonner are now officially in the gun. I can do Billings to Gray and Hibberd to Yeo. Its rage trade time……….

gator59

Yep Toppa a real mare of a week .. you even beat me by 2 points.. I gotta get rid of Kruze and Grundy in

Corey

100% agree with you too hawk absolute terrible round for me as well 1989 might be time to move on Billings with tree sub 80 scores and GWS next week

Krups

Hold billings huh………thanks

Rocksta

Billings and Petracca simply must go. All the dialog about them getting more mid time preaseason was just all BS!

Ja191

agree on billings but petracca has been good?

TheBenchmark25

Billings 3 possessions off the top stkilda possession getter and
Petracca 5 off the leading Melb possession better (Oliver)
Both teams unfortunately got smashed by 50 plus points and they butchered it at times
They'll come good in my opinion

Connor

I disagree RE Billings – think if he kicked 2 goals instead of behinds he scores 100+ (this inaccuracy was the reason I steered clear last year, took the gamble, not paying off so far but HOLD).
Petracca = not SC relevant… yet

Marty

Tough week. Finally chose the right captain in Dusty which helped me reach 2243. How did we all do?

Defying_Madness

Just scored above 2000 this week. One of my worst weeks in years

TOPHAWK1

You have done well mate. I am looking at 2000. Absolutely spewing.

Dean

Great score Marty, I scored 2156 and had to bench Kelly…

Connor

My season just went down the drain, scored 2002, gonna fall a long way down the rankings (injuries have destroyed my season, 7 so far!)

INPieman

Great score Marty. 2219 for me

Marty

Great work mate. I hope I can string a few together.

AuroraBorealis?!

Only 2078 for me this week, very tough. Nice score though Marty!

Randomcliche

2234 R.Gray, O'meara, Sicily doing the work.

BockChoy

2231 this week. Had the VC on Dusty; Deledio and Lambert came good.

Deledio was the riskiest of my starting mid-pricers. Question on him was fitness and being able to avoid injury. He's starting to move well and this may well be one that pays off big time.

Defying_Madness

Crazy to be considering Lobb and Billings to Taranto and McLean/ Gray?

Marty

Not silly. Never known to be so many sideway trades this season because of underperforming premos. Billings, Hibberd, etc. Usually they come good but patience is being tested.

Pete

So from all reports my score of 2277 will be above par… Hope so…

Multi_

Yep that’s a good score

INPieman

Plenty of rage trading this week

Crowboy94

Not sure I can when I have 26 left…

gator59

Looking like there will be plenty of bang bangs this week Pieman

INPieman

There will Gator! Billings & Hibberd are extreme liabilities

gator59

Don't have either but have other crap to deal with and that is you Mr.Kruezer

INPieman

Kruez to Grundy looks appealing

gator59

It sure is mate

SirSamuel016

It's going to be hard to not make a rage trade this week. Sub 2K score (1984 so I wasn't too far off the ball), and some stains of the pant from Zorko (yet again), Whitfield (wasn't too bad but I'd have hoped for better), Howe, and Billings (More the team than him) have me considering trades even though I've tried to really hold myself to backing my premos in. I've only made one trade so far which was Ryan for Henry putting my bank up to 97.2K, not enough there to do a lot so maybe I'll find myself forced to hold for a while longer.

Finnius

2073…… Sooo much rage trading this week.

KSinny

2012 😡😠😡

FearTheBeard

2071. I would rage if we vs each other lol.

Finnius

Beat my opponent in my cash league by 3 points when it looked like he had me all the way. He took titch's score even though he had dusty as VC, otherwise would have destroyed me. The only good thing to come from this week lol

Whatyasmokin

Stick to the plan, long season to go……..

FearTheBeard

Against the rule of stick by your premiums.

Kruez & Billings GONEEEEEEEEEE

Grundy & Gray/Heeney will decide.

INPieman

The Blues are woeful. Get rid of them. Kreuz to Grundy looks good. And Billings to wither of those boys great as well

FearTheBeard

Who you reckon my old mate Pieman?/

Heeney or Gray? Leaning towards Gray!

INPieman

Gray. One week of pain in round 10. Hopefully he plays through the bye rounds. Billings scoring like a rookie anyway

Sc_Wow

Billings in will go 130 next week

FearTheBeard

Heard that last week 😐

Will like seeing it again for someone.

FearTheBeard

Sorted. 70k in the bank. Cull Bonner (started with him) to Mirra & Cull another cow same time leaving me 500k to go to shops round after 😀

Feels better not seeing Kreuz & Billings ffs.

Defying_Madness

wait a week on bonner

FearTheBeard

I am, this week I ditched Kreuz for Grundy & Billings for Gray.

Defying_Madness

Oh my bad

Sc_Wow

2267 rages coming

Connor

Surely not?

Connor

You will fly up the rankings!

Sc_Wow

2186

cashcows

Only 5 unique players for my h2h in my cash league and scrapped the win by 1pt with 2120.
Billings and Hibbo are gonna be this week's headache.

TommyC99

Gonna be hard not to rage trade this week. Got Billings and Kruez stinking it up. But only got 26 trades and 50k so can probably only get rid of the one. Thinking Kruez. But dont think im gonna have enough to go straight to Grundy. And Grundy shares a bye with Gawn, which isn't ideal (although have got English).

Shake_n_Bake_

Scored poorly this week but still would av won 2 of my leagues had supercoach let me change my capt selection. Had Gawn but last 60 sec tried to change it to Oliver only a 16 pt difference but lost 2 leagues under that. The C was present and pressed it twice in about a min before the bounce but it must have a longer cut out time?? Ohwell till next week.

Sandyf62

Try not to leave it so late next time,that happened to me a few times last year,never again.

dontblushbaby

My calculations Danger to drop by approx 45k ?

b_sh3p

Great guess btw! $48.2 with plenty more to come

scrotum

putrid week not even into the twos, hate this game

BlueBaggerJosh

1999, i am ashamed in my team

Davo

nankervis to grundy sound a bit impulsive?

Defying_Madness

Yeah I would probably hold off on that one

KSinny

Agreed Nank has been good

Yep

I'm considering it. Grundy seems this years top ruck

KSinny

If Kelly's out for more than another week he is going straight to Danger

Sandyf62

I'd wait another week,Danger is going down and it's not like he is setting the world on fire

Defying_Madness

Yeah I will be waiting another. We should take full advantage of his price drop now. Will go down around 50k this week and more next week

hedski

Stinking 2020 this week, can't believe 2209 first week with Danger on the pine has been my best score!!
Somehow still won 5/10 leagues but jeez Kreuz and Billings are killing me, I'll hold them for the moment though.
Team is..
Laird, Sicily, Savage (Naughton)
Finlayson, Murray, Doedee (Murphy)

Danger, Titch, Fyfe (Banfield*)
Kelly*, Cripps, Cogs (D.Fog)
Kelly, Holman (Barry)

Gawn, KREUZER (English)

Heeney, Greene, BILLINGS (Garlett)
Smith, Fritsch, Henry (ZGL)

Looks OK but just can't get the pricks on the park and scoring at the same time.
Ah well bring on round 5 👍

INPieman

At least you don't have Hibberd

hedski

True, if he can come into some form in the next month he will be a cheap upgrade.
You gave me a nice touch up this week, good team you've got going there mate.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Probably get howled down for this and will most likely come back to haunt but.

Once Kruez "lost power in his groin" rd 1 traded him to nic nat, should have been grundy in hindsight but happy with this call.

Week 3 – Money saved allowed me to go brayshaw to tarranto who i think may be one of the top fwds. DPP handy to turn into a fallen mid.

As started all right rooks then thought i could do a couple of correctives. As rooks r mooing nicely.

Watched billings first 3 weeks and not getting much mid time with saints struggling he struggles. I had a look at saints and dogs draw next 8 weeks and dogs have a gr8 run so after watching mclean straight swap this week.

So yep have used 4 but team is really taking place.
As Kelly has as "groin" hate any problem around there as they linger will probably go Kelly to Dusty next week giving me the big 3.

Then just pick off the fallen once the cows have fattened.

Defying_Madness

Do you think Taranto is still worth picking up? Hasn't increased in price that much. Only worry is that when Kelly comes back maybe he gets less mid time

Demonlover84

Mostly good moves I reckon! I've learnt already that this year we're gonna have to take more risks and be brave and aggressive with trading. I've been way to conservative so far…

Demonlover84

Holy bejeezus that was an average round! Hibberd has to go, I can't believe I started him over Laird! Seriously regretting having Danger from the start now as well! Cost me an extra 100k than Dusty and he's been out performed yet again. At least Zerrett tonned up. I'm thinking Hibberd to Laird and Brayshaw to Coffield. What are the community's thoughts on Trac to Hogan as well?

Multi_

Trac has been pretty good I was at the game today and with the weather everyone’s efficiency was well down

Demonlover84

Yeah he has, but I just can't see him being as good as I'd hoped. Probably just frustrated and I really like the look of Hogan. Such a bad game today…

Whatyasmokin

Tracca trade is sideways. Coffield boat has sailed. Bad moves imo.

Defying_Madness

How has coffield boat sailed???

Whatyasmokin

Well it had sailed in my mind, based on flawed data. Dont worry no madness to defy just a simple error. 😉

Whatyasmokin

Edit – My mistake thought Coffield had played 3. Id be hesitant to trade Brayshaw though regardless.

Demonlover84

I had to check with Coffield, yeah he's only played the 2 games and has a b/e of -45 Brayshaw b/e of 54 and could start to lose cash.

zerowins

Hibberd has to go this week. I cant handle him in my side anymore

Sc_Wow

And wow has moved to 610 overall

Defying_Madness

Nice effort

scrotum

good work wowzer, i had my worst for two years 1970 putrid

Derek

Nice Trev.

Sc_Wow

Cheers Trev

Corey

Some Players are really challenging the rage trade and do not sideways trade policy

Crowboy94

Hey Guys

I have both Billings and Hibberd.
Plus need to cull Brayshaw.

Down to 26 trades so not sure what to do….

Thinking I may just have to hold Hibberd and Billings, focus on rookies and upgrading to premos.

Any advice is welcome!

Whatyasmokin

Is Billings really proven? Maybe flick him. Brayshaw can still make cash.

Crowboy94

Brayshaws break even is 54. He wont get that….

Whatyasmokin

He might, and he won't bleed much if he doesn't.

Ricardo

Be surprised if Brayshaw is selected this week.

Russty_

Nah Billings isn't proven yet, he has proven he can knock out 3 good scores and 3 crap scores in a row, so he might be due for a few good scores before he drops 3 more crap ones.

zerowins

I have both and thinking of going to sicily and gray. Twam looks better for it. Im down to 26 trades in doing so

PerthPies

Other than Finlayson (in my opinion the best rookie-priced talent this year), Kelly and Murray, the rookies had an off week. Elliot Yeo-Yeo is back to his old pre-2017 self again. Lekdog, how long do you give Bolton before he is sacked this year? I like him as a person, but your Blues should be performing better than they currently are. Love the community. Well done, lads, for keeping it alive!

TOPHAWK1

Aaaaaaahhhh.

Hibbo and Billings are bloody shit! Trade arse off!!!

Hibbo to Yeo and Billings to R Gray.

Welcome!

Sc_Wow

Lost a bit of money with the billings to gray trade, just think about it

gator59

And we'll lose money going kruz to Grundy

Defying_Madness

Had a stinker of a week scoring 2022, probably my worst score in years. My team is alright however injuries have forced my hand with trades. Wanted to trade out Lobb last round however my trade didn't go through so I am not sure if I should make it this week. Here is my team, currently got 120k in the bank

Laird, Ryan, Bonner (Murphy)
Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Keefe)

Titch, Dusty, Fyfe (Barry)
KELLY, Oliver, Zerret (Brayshaw)
Kelly, Holman (Banfield)

Nic Nat, Gawn (Olango)

Heeney, Smith, BILLINGS (Fritsch)
Sicily, LOBB, Henry (VENABLES)

Considering the following two options:

Lobb, Billings —–> Taranto, McLean/ Gray

Lobb, Brayshaw ——-> McLean/Gray, Coffield

Any advice from the community regarding my team and trades I should be making this week is appreciated. Hopefully my team can bounce back from my poor score.

Thanks and good luck community

TOPHAWK1

Option 1. Billings to Gray and Lobb to McLean. Job done.
