Carnage, folks. Absolute C-A-R-N-A-G-E

It all came crashing down in round 4 and once again I will blame Collingwood. That’s two Friday night wins on the trot and two rubbish weeks in SuperCoach. The villains section of Big Carl’s Heroes, Villains and the Damned article this week read like a who’s who of SuperCoach and every one of them was in my team. On a personal note I got spanked by Patch in not one, but two leagues. Sigh.

(me Sunday night)

These weeks happen in SuperCoach though and we were due. Let’s be honest, we shouldn’t be putting up scores of 2,500+ this early in the season. Patch will probably take away my cookie privileges for saying this but now is NOT the time to panic. League wise, we are two games into a 17 match season. If you are making upgrades at this point make them count, chasing that shiny midpricer that you wouldn’t have come close to considering in the preseason *coughDeanKentcough* is not going to pump out weekly 110’s.

In round 5 we’ve got footy spread over about 17 days culminating in the yuuuuuuuuge ANZAC day clash between Collingwood and Essendon. It might force you into trading during the round, so a friendly reminder that you cannot reverse trades once the round as started. The rookie situation is fairly murky this round, Nick Coffield being the only real worthwhile downgrade target (I feel dirty recommending a Carlton player at this point). As good as he’s been so far, we’ve got Matt “Really, really, really, ridiculously good looking” Guelfi and Dave Mirra on the bubble next week. Mirra is bargain priced, priced at 69 (nice) thousand cheaper than Coffield. Giving us maximum cash from a Bonner or Brayshaw trade. 

Listening to the podcast is your first step in scrubbing the stink of round 4 off. A good grasp of who is lighting it up at reserves level is a good thing to have when rookies debut, Barron’s analysis, as always, is a must read. Captain choices were tough to nail last week but Sloane makes it a little easier, and Damo is settling in to Lek’s cheat sheet shoes with another top effort this week.

THE NEWS

Only 14 teams have named their squads for the weekend. Teams for Tuesday and Wednesday night games will be released Monday night at 6:20. Despite the decrease, injuries and axe wielding have seen a lot of changes for round 5.

For tonight, Adelaide have made four changes, three of them forced as Rory Sloane, Eddie Betts, and Dave Mackay are all out due to injury. Darcy Fogarty has been omitted. Myles Poholke (MID/FWD – $123,900) will debut. Sydney have dropped Nic Newman in a repeat of the 2017 season. Come to Tigerland, Nic!

Josh Kelly will miss again at GWS, and still no Zac Langdon. They’ll go in unchanged against the Saints. Hunter Clark gets another go at St. Kilda. In devastating news to all boat enthusiasts out there, Rowan “My boat” Marshall is out with injury. I can’t wait until he takes the number 1 ruck position at St Kilda because I definitely have this meme ready to go.

Matthew Kreuzer is one of 5 changes at the Blues, the other four don’t really matter, neither do the five they’ve brought in. Says a lot about their “depth” really. Another raid on GWS post season is a given. Dan Venables will miss 10 weeks after stuffing his ankle, Mark Hutchings comes in and will probably go straight to Patrick Cripps. Ross Lyon has named his FIFTH debutant in a sure sign that he’s in the midst of a full blown midlife crisis, Taylin Duman (DEF – $123,900) the latest to get a gig. The Dogs have made four changes, none of them really matter in a SuperCoach sense. Though Tom Boyd returning after kicking 5 in the VFL last week will excite the faithful. Jack Hombsch returns to the Port Adelaide backline, Tom Rockliff is “injured” (read: shit), and Dom Barry hasn’t learnt a recall. The Cats have dropped Zach Guthrie.

On Sunday, North have added Will Walker (MID – $117,300) to the squad with no confirmed outs as yet. Will Will debut? We will find out tomorrow. Will. The Hawks have added James Worpel to the squad (MID – $117,300). I have no jazzy wordplay here. Bruce will surely sacrificing a goat to ensure a quick return for Cyril, he and Puopolo are the confirmed outs at this stage. Brisbane have made their usual half a dozen changes. Is there a TV reality show called “Who wants to be a Footballer” up north because I really can’t tell you much about them. A debut for Oscar McInerney (RUC – $123,900) could be on the cards, and we know what sharing the ruck duties does to Stef Martin (hint: it’s not good). Gold Coast have added Michael Barlow to their extended bench.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Some dud rookie scores have a few of us reaching for whiskey and the trade button this week. Remember trading rookies 101 here, folks. When a players average meets his breakeven, that’s when you trade. So while Holman only managed a 32 against West Coast, his average of 75 is well above his breakeven of 25.

It’s been up for debate at Jock HQ if St. Kilda or Andrew Brayshaw has been more disappointing so far. He flashed his 90 point upside across the preseason, but already has a breakeven of 54 while his average sits at 48. Trading rookies 101 says you trade him, but as mentioned we’ve got some problems with rookies on the bubble this week. If you can stick him at M9 then do so, hopefully that one decent score to get his price moving is just around the corner.

Not a lot of value in trading in rookies over 200k now so I’ve left them out.

* = on the bubble

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

-45 – Nick Coffield*

-42 – Jack Henry

-40 – Mitch Crowden

-38 – Ed Richards

-37 – Esava Ratugolea

-3 – Willie Rioli

4 – Cam O’Shea*

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

Patrick Dangerfield – 209

Aaron Hall – 162

Tom Mitchell – 160

JPK – 159

Joel Selwood – 156

Goldmember – 155

Dayne Beams – 155

Dusty – 154

Clayton Oliver – 150

Lachie Neale – 149

Jack Billings – 146

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

With teams electing to lock down Lachie Whitfield streaming off halfback, Stephen Coniglio has gone 129, 120, 124, 116 in his first month of footy for an average of 122. With Cogs being allowed off the chain, he is averaging 28 disposals at a tick under 70% d.e. At 529k he represents a crazy amount of value.

I did a preseason review on this bloke heading into the 2017 season, where I claimed he could open the batting for Australia due to his general sporting talent (given the current state of Australian cricket, this is a possibility). He was a run with player in 2016, completing his midfield apprenticeship against some of the premier mids in our game.

Casting my eye over his stats so far this season he’s really not dominating in a particular area of the game, but he contributes in a lot of ways. Hitting the scoreboard is the most pleasing for a midfielder, kicking 7 goals so far this year and at least one per game.

With almost 100 games now under his belt he’s in the prime breakout window. Jump on.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Now that Patch has stopped feeding the Jock Reynolds website gremlins after midnight and I can finally post things, I’ll drop a Panic Room update on Tuesday evening for the ANZAC day clash. Draftstars has a casual $100k contest for this one, with 15k for first place.  A day off, Draftstars, a few brews, and laughing at Ben Reid’s bleach white noggin’ / facial hair combo, what could be better?

That’s all for this week. Let’s get around JR Community member Kane. His team AFLogan is sitting 171 points off the pace in 11th overall!

Not the week to be fluffing around with loopholes. It's almost like 2 rounds in 1 week. Don't be surprised if Holman & Fritsch dissappear

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:10

    I'll loop Coniglio or Greene as VC and then I'll try looping Hunter Clark off the bench but 99% sure he won't score anything worth taking.

    Who's your VC this week Pieman?

      INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 13:16

      Depends if Holman is out. If I need to go someone early it's likely Cogs against the Saints. Probably take anything over 115 this week. Danger injured, Titch has a date with Jacobs, Fyfe up & down, & Dusty playing forward & not this weekend. My reliable 4 doesn't look like it anymore

    Hammer · 22/04/2018 at 03:16

    couldnt disagree more. when Martin and Mitchell have big opportunities to be tagged and average results accordingly, your vice is most important. Going Cogs (v) into Fyfe (c) sure didnt hurt me

    Hammer · 22/04/2018 at 03:19

    FWIW i did two reconstructive trades earlier and havent touched my team. by playing Fyfe as captain I have pushed my projected win from 150 to 200. if that's not worth attention then I think we are talking cross purposes

hedski · 20/04/2018 at 12:14

Nice rank Kane!!!
Cheers Kev, no panic here, I am in full blown rage mode after my injury inflicted crap start to the year.

The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 12:40

NIce work Kev, you're setting a really nice level of panic of late, not too much, not too little.
And hats off to Kane, good luck mate.

Dee · 20/04/2018 at 12:47

27 Trades – 93k
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Bobber, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)
MID: Danger, Titch, Martin, J Kelly, Fyfe, Finlayson, T Kelly, Banfield (Brayshaw, Holman, Barry)
RUCK: Natanui, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Billings, D Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Henry (Fritsch, Garlett)

Just need help with trades this week. Maybe Brayshaw to Coffield? Or hold. Let me know your trade thoughts.
Cheers

    Hayden · 20/04/2018 at 13:20

    I think J Kelly to Coniglio is a solid swap. Congilio has looked great and will continue to increase in price.
    Brayshaw to Coffield is a good move too. Get rid of the dud for a cash cow.

Dylan · 20/04/2018 at 12:51

Kreuzer to Stef Martin and Josh Kelly to Dusty Martin. The dynamic Martin duo surely!?

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 13:00

    Be careful with Stef – a rookie ruckman named on the extended bench.

      Derek · 20/04/2018 at 14:35

      There is always a rookie ruckman on bench.

      They changed rules this year, adding an extra emergency but making it that the late replacements Must come from the emergencies. As a result, most teams use the extra place for a reserve ruck, just in case

        Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 16:05

        very true. Still one to watch though.

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:42

    Looks bloody good Dylan.

      Dylan · 20/04/2018 at 19:27

      Cheers guys! My price range for the ruck is $540k, would there be any other viable options?

        Jeff · 21/04/2018 at 01:26

        Nic Nat?

          Dylan · 21/04/2018 at 10:38

          I completely forgot about Nic Nat! My choice has now been made, cheers Jeff!

SirSamuel016 · 20/04/2018 at 12:51

Great work once again Kev!

I haven't pulled the trigger just yet but I am looking at making a trade or two today. I'm considering trading either Billings or Brayshaw (or both) this round. Billings if I trade would be correctional because the way St. Kilda have been I just can't see much merit in having him in my side other than not using a trade. As for Brayshaw, he is projected to lose money this round and Coffield is on the bubble so it's tempting. I've got 97.2K in the bank with 29 trades left, and my team looks like this:

DEF: Laird, Hurley, Howe, Finlayson, Murray, Doedee (Murphy, Naughton)
MID: Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Zorko, Whitfield, Kelly, Holman, Banfield (Brayshaw, Dow, Barry)
RUCK: Gawn, Sandilands (Olango)
FWD: Walters, Smith, Billings, Petracca, Sicily, Fritsch (Garlett, Henry)

Would really appreciate any feedback/thoughts on my team. Best of luck with this round everyone!

Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 12:54

What does everyone think about Taranto? Getting him over McLean saves me a crazy amount of dosh, but not sure whether it is worth the risk.

That money could come in handy though, especially considering that I may have up to 5(!!) non-playing rookies on the bench this weekend (murphy, holman, barry, Fritsch, ZGL).

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:05

    Unless there's a clear reason for saving the extra cash I'd go for McLean.
    Although both are fairly decent options (I have both).

    TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 16:06

    Has looked good, but McLean’s bye is hard to ignore.

DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:07

Dropped way back into the field after having a good first two weeks.
Time to bite the bullet.
Bonner –> Coffield
Brayshaw –> Coniglio

I'm happy trading Bonner given I started with him, although probably as an overall rule I'd usually keep him a bit longer.

    Dave · 20/04/2018 at 14:44

    Hold Bonner for Mirra next week? Bonner should make a bit more this week and Mirra is cheaper than coffield

      DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:01

      Was aiming to bring Mirra in next week for Barry or Clark by swinging Coffield into the mids, setting up a swingset with Finlayson.

        TheGreatBozza · 20/04/2018 at 15:26

        I like this move. Will be handy come byes

      Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:21

      I'm doing exactly that and the money from that trade to trade JOM to Danger. Holding trades this week. Have toyed with the idea of burning one extra trade and going Bonner to Coffield now, cash in the bank then Coffield to Mirra next week. It makes more money, makes the JOM to Danger move more certain but does use an extra trade. Haven't decided yet……

StevoRivo · 20/04/2018 at 13:10

Reverse trade button in overdrive. Late outs and selection chaos brewing. 😳

Sammy_14 · 20/04/2018 at 13:15

Taranto or Scily? some help would be great

    Hayden · 20/04/2018 at 13:22

    Taranto boat has sailed already I think.

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 13:33

    sicily for me.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 17:53

    As Derek said somewhere, Sicily has the easiest job at the Hawks, loose man in defence, could easily average 100+, not sure about Taranto yet, but he has also looked pretty good.

CJudd3Votes · 20/04/2018 at 13:17

If youve bothered to hold Kreuzer to this point i reckon you can actually stand to gain a bit from holding him. He has been playing underdone but a week off to actually let him get himself right could be the best thing for him. Obviously youd need cover (english) but dont think its a simple trade and dont look back

    David C · 22/04/2018 at 10:56

    Unless he's out for more that 1 week.

Hayden · 20/04/2018 at 13:19

Hibberd downgrade to Coffield and Billing upgrade to Gray.
Don't have the spare cash to upgrade both unfortunately.

Next week I'm looking to upgrade Bonner to Savage/Simpson and perhaps swap Barry out for Mirra if he backs up this week.

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:23

    I wouldn't trade Hibberd. Jordan Lewis out this week may give Hibbo his kick in duties back and hopefully some higher scores.
    I'd hold trades unless you wanna go Barry to Coffield just to give you another money making rookie.

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 13:36

    Do you have Sicily? Hibbo to sic could be a good trade.

      Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 14:15

      When we pick a premo how long do you maintain the faith before you bail.? Lewis out may be a positive role change for Hibberd. If you trade him now you've lost money. If you hold there is every chance he turns it around.

      If you do trade him out and go to Sicily be aware of what you are doing and that is trading out a premo for a mid price player who is the biggest flog in the comp. His footy has been good and his scoring better than good but can you trust him long term? How long until the next flog tantrum?

        Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 14:36

        at the end of the day, one of them will be a top 6 defender and the other won't. Even if hibbo gets 130 this weekend, when Lewis comes back it will just be the same all over again.

          Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:08

          Not sure about that Fin that defence has either been a rabble or a work in progress depending on how positive you want to be. Apart from last weeks debacle they gave up 80 points in the first half against the cats then held them to 17 points in the second half. They gave the kangas the first four goals and allowed Brisbane to pile on 7 unanswered at one point. They simply haven't worked out how to best use Hibberd, Vince Lewis and in particular Lever together yet. Even with Lewis back there would have been wholesale structural change. There really should be enough talent here that they all thrive once they get it right especially with TMac coming back also… I can see why somebody would want to move Hibberd on but moving on for someone as unstable as Sicily is not a risk I'd take……to each their own

          Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:09

          Lewis was there all last season and it worked just fine

            theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:28

            What's changed? Lever.

              Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:48

              Yep. They seem so focussed on trying to allow Lever the freedom to come off his opponent and play a role similar to Alex Rance that Hibberd and a few others seem quite hesitant and unsure what to do

pasta stRayner · 20/04/2018 at 13:19

Needing some trade advice this week… currently ranked 1,200th after a few premo's missing games. 28 trades remaining after jumping the gun with Brayshaw to Mirra, I've got $230k in the bank with the main points of concern being Whitfield, Billings and Goldy. I'm strongly considering holding the first two but want to ship off Goldy…. Nic Nat against a Kreuzer-less Carlton or pay the bucks for Grundy?? is he the number one ruck in the comp?

DEF:
Laird, Savage, Tuohy, Doeedee, Murray, Mirra (Naughton, Richards)

MID:
Mitchell, Fyfe, Oliver, Parker, Whitfield, O'Meara, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Banfield, Barry)

RUCK:
Gawn, Goldy (Cameron)

FWD:
Greene, Mclean, Smith, Billings, Sicily, Fritsch (Garlett, Keefe)

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:26

    My one fear is West Coast giving Nic Nat a rest at some point.
    Grundy seems a little bit overs for mine but could very possibly end up as #1 ruck in the comp.
    If you have English I'd go Nic Nat but otherwise another ruck may be a better play.

    You can easily hold this week if needed.

      pasta stRayner · 20/04/2018 at 13:48

      Not starting English bloody hurt me.. didn't even realise he could the nod for R1 til it was too late.

      I agree Grundy is overs.. might just hold.

      skate or die · 20/04/2018 at 15:39

      I doubt West Coast will rest Nic Nat. Nic Nat is probably the most important player to the WC structure. Plus remember he was ready to play at the end of last season, that's an extra 7 months of training injury free to make sure he sees the season through and to have a real impact.

    Marty · 20/04/2018 at 17:54

    He might be overs but as you are near the top go for the jugular and trade Goldy to Grundy. Didn't like the vision of seeing Goldy icing his knee after the game in the rooms.

Jim_bob321 · 20/04/2018 at 13:19

I'm going to go Buddy VC but a bit concerned…
What does the community think

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/04/2018 at 13:23

    Thats what the VC is for
    Early game gamble.
    May as well have a crack.

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:28

    With the little options out there it's not the worst option, although Talia usually does pretty well on him.
    Given I can't see many players going really big in the first 2 games, I'd say give Buddy a go.

    Theoriginalforce · 20/04/2018 at 14:34

    Sydney mids Vs Adelaide depleted mids should give him a decent crack at a bag?

Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 13:36

I am skippering Grundy this week. Bellchambers is a slow ruckman and won't be able to follow him around the ground. I reckon Grundy will rack up the touches again. As I think at least one of holman and fritsch will be dropped, I am just going to VC Fyfe. Only option using Barry is laird and the ceiling isnt there for me to back him in, as well as the fact that he is up against sydney and I think they will try to lock him down.

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 13:39

    I really like the Fyfe VC option at home to the Dogs, contemplating whether to captain him or Danger.

    Just can't forget Danger's game vs Port last year. It's clearly putting a bias on my decision.

      The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 14:32

      Tempted by Fyfe at home too Dac.
      Might go NicNat into Fyfe. NicNat against a ruckless Carlton…

        DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 14:35

        Andrew Phillips is surely deserving of a spot in Carlton's best team this century, not sure what you're on about Ranger.

          The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 14:47

          Haha ha…he'd be looking forward to playing on the big Dog eh?!

    Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 14:20

    Fritsch named in squad for. Casey

      DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 14:31

      Bernie Vince also named in the guts surprisingly for Casey

        Phil · 20/04/2018 at 14:46

        Everyone except Gawn and Hogan are named for Casey it seems….I've heard Robbie Flower is named ruck-rover. All jokes aside I wouldn't take too much notice of that cos I doubt the Dee's would know their side 4 days before their game.
        If they actually lineup for Casey start panicking

          Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:12

          Fair call. Do they have wingmen in the VFL or is it like the old VFA days with only 16 on the ground. I only mention this because Robbie would definitely start on the wing Phil

Maverick_ · 20/04/2018 at 13:44

What a disgusting week for the VC loophole! Olango barry And ZGL all play early in the weekend. I Can only really VC laird or cogs and sold on neither. This will make or break a few teams this week

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 13:51

    I think that either holman or fritsch will be out so VCing later. if it doesnt work so be it, I am not sold on any options before hand anyways.

Carny · 20/04/2018 at 14:03

Really contemplating trading Billings. Could go either:
A. Billings > Coniglio (via DPP), and Brayshaw to Coffield.
B. Billings > McLean, Brayshaw to Coffield.

Not sure? Option A will give me 6 premos in mid, and Kelly and Holman/Banfield/Coff as rooks. It will make my forward line lean though, with Heeney, Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Garlett, Henry / Fritsch.
Option B will keep my mid as is, but will literally swap Billings and McLean.

Or scrap the above and ride Billings!? Cheers lads!

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 14:11

    For structures sake I'd go option B if you really wanna trade.
    I'm just riding the Billings rollercoaster though.

    Derek · 20/04/2018 at 15:21

    Hold Billings

Johnny · 20/04/2018 at 14:03

How do we feel about goldy to Nic nat? Goldys BE is high and he is playing BAD with preuss sure to come in the side soon? Nic nat is lookin incredible in 60% TOG each week and is playing a kruezerless carlton. Should I pull the trigger or be patient

Bam · 20/04/2018 at 14:17

Def: Laird Simpson Howe Doedee Murray Coffield (naughton, milocech)
Mid: Mitchell Martin Fyfe Zorko Cogs Merrett Kelly Finlayson (holman banfield barry)
Ruc: Jacobs Gawn (Cameron)
For: Heeney Greene Smith Christensen Frisch Garlett (Ryan Veneables)

Traded Brayshaw for Coffield this week, but now with Frisch possibly out and no cover on the bench with ryan and veneables injured, any suggestions? $145k in the bank. Panic stations!

    Goat · 20/04/2018 at 14:56

    Tough one because of the lack of mid/fwd DPPs in your side. I had the same FWD bench coming into this round and traded Ryan for Coffield via 2 DPPs. You can reverse the Coffield trade but I don't see it necessarily improves your options. Venables is the next one to go IMHO. You could punt on a rookie who is playing and has some JS (eg. Crowden who is also DPP but you have missed the first rise) or go early on Guelfi without raiding the bank. Poholke (DPP) to debut for Adelaide tonight – guaranteed score for this week but JS is questionable at this stage. If you did raid, not sure it gets a lot better. Or, cop a donut and fix the problem with 2 trades next round. I'd probably punt on Guelfi.

      DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:03

      Agreed with the punt on Guelfi

      Bam · 20/04/2018 at 16:31

      That's awesome feedback mate, I reckon Guelfi could be the way to go. The possibility then next week is that Giles Langdon returns and Ryan can make way there too. Will certainly place some money in the bank for upgrades that will come around too. Appreciate the feedback!

    Derek · 20/04/2018 at 15:19

    Ryan and Venables have to go. You can’t hold them for 8 weeks, reduces your cash generation. Even Crowden at $159k is still ok value.

      Bam · 20/04/2018 at 16:34

      Spot on – I wasn't planning at any stage on keeping them until they come back. The issue is that there's no forwards on the bubble this week – risky getting Guelfi but sounds like it's the way to go! Crowden certainly an option but missing the first price jump hurts.

Goat · 20/04/2018 at 14:34

I am struggling over Whitfield. Considering a sideways to Coniglio or a slight down to Taranto – neither of whom seem to be getting any attention. Thoughts?

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:04

    Whitfield had 70 odd point second half last week. I'd be holding for the moment.

      Goat · 20/04/2018 at 15:18

      Thanks. Perhaps I need to give him the chance to redeem against the Saints (where he might get some space). He is leaking cash though!.

Phil · 20/04/2018 at 14:50

My midfield took a massive hit last week (Kelly & Armitage) and I've decided I can't run 4 rookie deep ever again. So who comes in? Oliver or Cognilio?
Does the 70k difference mean that much?
Anyone concerned Coginlio has never played more than 18 games a season?
Should I consider anyone else? Already have Titch, Dusty, Fyfe & Cripps

    Phil · 20/04/2018 at 14:52

    P.S I'm a big Zac Merrett fan, just concerned about 3 head knocks already this year. 480k very tempting though.

    Goat · 20/04/2018 at 15:06

    I know you would be late to the party but I would go Coniglio.

      Phil · 20/04/2018 at 15:26

      Thanks Goat, I've got the feeling most will say that. I've just got some concerns about his durability & ceiling. Kudos to anyone who started him, but I feel to bring him in now he must be top10 midfielder (from here on, what's happened has already happened) Not sure he is

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 16:03

    The cash is what tips it towards Coniglio, but Oliver is an absolute gun as well.

    Marty · 20/04/2018 at 18:03

    Oliver =gun
    He had 9 clangers against the Hawks and still scored 128

Liam · 20/04/2018 at 14:57

Community, im feeling dangerous… . im thinking, trading Danger… thats right, getting rid of the god. My thoughts behind this, get someone like oliver who is performing amazing, banking that cash and waiting 2 weeks until danger hits rock bottom and bringing him back for a cash up rookie.
sitting on 26 trades and $322,100 in the kitty so far.

    Multi_ · 20/04/2018 at 15:03

    Just don't do it Liam those trades will be worth more than you will gain

    Goat · 20/04/2018 at 15:04

    Love an adventure but that is 2 trades for Oliver when (with $322 in the kitty) you should be able to do it for one a round earlier (e.g. T Kelly). Those of us who started Danger did it to save a trade. Let time be our judge….

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:05

    Waste of trades for a relatively small financial gain.
    Hold.

    Derek · 20/04/2018 at 15:13

    I do ponder this question a lot, what is a trade worth? In your case two trades.

    If you do the above, you might gain $120-150k?

    I would think a $250-300k cash gain might justify it

      Goat · 20/04/2018 at 15:26

      Isn't it effectively what you avoid on the drop (in this case Danger) plus gain on the acquisition(in this case Oliver) ?
      If so, I get your numbers but it would be very rare that this would be a good tactic (i.e. $300K gain). Also, across the whole side you have a limited number of trades to convert your rookies into playing premiums and this only gains 1 premium. The logic might work if instead of Oliver you chose a low $400K midfielder and (somehow) he had 2-3 meteoric weeks to land in the mid 600s. Hard to predict that.

        Derek · 20/04/2018 at 15:38

        At best it might make $120k, $60k danger drop and $60 Oliver increase

      Marty · 20/04/2018 at 18:04

      Not if you have to trade Danger in again when he goes ballistic.

    Sc_Wow · 20/04/2018 at 22:56

    Silly

Josh · 20/04/2018 at 15:01

Is Kreuzer a must trade this week if you don’t have cover for him? Or should I be looking to fix a few other issues in the team?

27 trades and 80k in the bank

Def: Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, Finlayson (Richards, Naughton)
Mid: Titch, Fyfe, Coniglio, Cripps, Parker, Merrett, Kelly, Holman (Brayshaw, banfield, Barry)
Rucks: Gawn, Kreuzer (Olango)
Fwd: Mclean, Heeney, Billings, Walters, Fritsch, Garlett (ZGL, Keeffe)

    TheGreatBozza · 20/04/2018 at 15:25

    Best to offload Kreuzer. Only other issues I can see is under performing premos in Billings & Hibberd. I'd look at Kreuzer to Nic Nat and holding the other trade, placing some faith in Hibberd & Billings

SirSamuel016 · 20/04/2018 at 15:10

I need a solid M8 for this round so I'm trading out Brayshaw for Coffield. Still contemplating a second trade this round, trading Billings for either RGray or McLean. Heeney is also in consideration but a more unlikely selection. With 144.3k and now 28 trades left, should I scrap Billings?

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:48

    Billings is on the last chance list, don't know why he should be gonski already. If you're going to dump him Heeney's your man.

    Sandyf62 · 20/04/2018 at 17:56

    I got rid of Billings last week before his big price drop for Henry,now I can afford to bring in McLean this week.

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 17:59

      Same here Sandy, good riddance to bad Saints rubbish lol

ROBocop14 · 20/04/2018 at 15:18

Best POD midfielder going at moment?

    TheGreatBozza · 20/04/2018 at 15:20

    If your talking premos, I'd suggest Sidebottom

    DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:22

    Macrae?

      INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 15:26

      Agree with Dac. MacRae is the Dogs only full time mid

      TheGreatBozza · 20/04/2018 at 15:33

      He was my second choice. What's his ownership like? I'd assuming its slowly rising

        DacZawson · 20/04/2018 at 15:37

        3.9%

    BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 15:41

    Gibbs?

    ROBocop14 · 20/04/2018 at 16:32

    I've been swapping Macrae and Sidebottom all day! Think I'm going Macrae… But wait maybe Sidebottom!

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:09

    Macrae, averaging great and plays in round 14, have to start thinking about that, Sidey does too though.

    fcabel · 21/04/2018 at 01:55

    Oliver

Andrew · 20/04/2018 at 15:26

Sick of keeping Zorko should I hold for one more week? Not going to make any trades otherwise and have the cash to get Danger

    BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 15:42

    See how he goes against the Suns in my opinion.

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:46

    Yeah if Zorko going to score well it'll be this game. You've put up with him for this long might as well wait one more.

TheGreatBozza · 20/04/2018 at 15:33

I'd like to thank Carlton for actually not playing Krooz this week. Makes it easier to go to Grundy instead of holding a struggling premo.

What's the communities thoughts on Coffield? There's been a lot of talk pro and con of dumping Brayshaw for him. I'm leaning towards holding Brayshaw and skipping Coffield. As good as the possible swing set would be with Finlayson, taking a big $$$ loss on Krooz to Grundy means I want to regain some cash in skipping on a higher priced rookie.

    INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 15:40

    The high priced rookies haven't been a raging success. If he can maintain his average he would make it to about 350k at the byes. But that is assuming he keeps his job & Av up. Not an easy task. Look in the Mirra for a better option

    BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 15:42

    I'm holding Brayshaw, and trading him to Mirra/Guelfi next week

      INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 16:15

      I'm holding Brayshaw because I have ZGL Murphy Cameron Barry Holman & Fritsch. Warm bodies needed. Get rid of him later

BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 15:45

Kelly to Cogs this week for me.

    NoLanguage · 22/04/2018 at 03:27

    Gotta be done BB

Declan · 20/04/2018 at 15:50

Who to go for J Kelly?

Currently premos I have:
Danger, Titch, Oliver, Fyfe

Was thinking probs Dusty over someone like a Macrae or even Coniglio, just due to Dusty’s certainty of maintain his scores at a top 3 mid this year whereas the others have every chance to drop off or in Conig’s case succumb to injury.

Thoughts and all advice would really be appreciated community?

    Phil · 20/04/2018 at 16:06

    Dusty because he is a must-have, the other 2 are not

    Steeeve · 20/04/2018 at 16:08

    Can't go wrong with Dusty. However, Melbourne has been a bad team for his scores.

Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 16:03

Final trades for the week:

Hibberd —> Sicily (Fwd)

Not only does Sicily provide that valuable DPP, his scoring potential is higher

Saundo · 20/04/2018 at 16:05

V on Franklin/Laird
C on Danger/Oliver

Thoughts?

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:37

    Laird avg 83 vs Swans and Buddy 84 vs Crows.

Steeeve · 20/04/2018 at 16:07

No trades for me this week.

Ranked 7000-ish

26 trades left

$155,000 in the kitty

Captaining Danger this week even if his calf falls out of the skin.

How is everyone else travelling?

    fcabel · 21/04/2018 at 01:56

    Love it 👍

John · 20/04/2018 at 16:09

Who do I VC out of Coniglio, Laird and Cripps?

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 16:11

    Laird seems to be the safe option but Coniglio has the ceiling.
    Cripps will be tagged

      John · 20/04/2018 at 16:15

      Yeah I think I might put it on Cogs, cheers

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:19

    I reckon both Laird & Cripps will cop the tag. Cogs is the obvious choice from those three as he's now in the mix to be a top 10 mid.

Mystic Mac · 20/04/2018 at 16:18

Laird has gone +140 before, Cogs has not.. I'd take Laird at the SCG personally. Both good options.

dontblushbaby · 20/04/2018 at 16:18

Bringing in Buddy tonight and bangin the VC straight on him , might go very large IMO

    theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 16:32

    They have got a pretty good full back and Buddy's avg vs Crows is 84.

    Dean · 20/04/2018 at 16:48

    He’ll bag 7, crows in disarray!

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:37

    No Sloane or Crouch brothers should make it that little bit easier for Sydney to get there hands on the ball that little bit more. Who knows buddy could kick 5 or more.

Model/Actor · 20/04/2018 at 16:26

Which 2 of 3 over next fortnight. Guelfi Mirra or Cunico this

    Ja191 · 20/04/2018 at 17:00

    Guelfi and mirra, roi is a lot higher then cunico plus have much better js

    TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 17:35

    Guelfi and Mirra for me. Better bang for your buck.

      Johnny · 20/04/2018 at 18:52

      Guelfi and mirra. No brainer

Ace · 20/04/2018 at 16:39

Is Ben Brown worth a look?
Have barely seen much talk about him even though his averaging 100 and besides the poor R1 score has looked pretty consistent.
2.2% of team selections and could potentially be a sneaky P.O.D.
Was going to upgrade Fritsch to Brown as i feel Fritsch is going to struggle.
Call me crazy but trying the high risk high reward tactic.

    Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 16:58

    Ben Brown looks great. A big bloke who can clunk a contested mark and then kick the goal, what's not to love about that. In that first game he played in a cyclone in Cairns not great for a big bloke, absolutely hot at the moment. Good luck to you if you get an old fashioned full forward in and it pays off

      Derek · 20/04/2018 at 18:27

      North have played, Suns, Saints, Melb and Carlton.

      He and North might struggle against the better teams

        Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 18:54

        That's true but who are you rating as the better teams? That changes a fair bit even in one week let alone a month. Collingwood were garbage and going nowhere, Melbourne were a top four chance, Now Hawthorn are supposed to be a real chance, it will all look so different again in a few weeks. There is no great mystery with Ben Brown, great mark and very good kick. Contested marks are supercoach hold who is a better contested mark than Ben Brown

          NoLanguage · 22/04/2018 at 03:29

          Get him in. Back yourself

BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 17:01

Holman keeps his spot
LDU out

    Ja191 · 20/04/2018 at 17:18

    how the hell barlow manages to not get a game is beyond me

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:03

      He'd probably break his leg running through the Banner.

    TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 17:33

    Excellent. Great news. Holman back on the field and Banfield back on the bench. Holman should bounce back nicely against the Lions.

    The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 17:39

    Nice. Can loophole Banfield and Holman via Higgins.

Saundo · 20/04/2018 at 17:21

Bloody Josh Kelly 😡

    The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 17:29

    Shit yeah

Krups · 20/04/2018 at 17:31

Goldy to Nic Nat?

    Johnny · 20/04/2018 at 18:51

    Asked the same question below. I think we need to do it. How long till Scott gets fed up with it & plays preuss. Not far away IMO. Goldy looks very average

Hugh Greenwood · 20/04/2018 at 17:35

Hold Hibberd or Petracca? Petracca lacks high scoring potential but Hibberd's been in horrible form, even if Lewis isn't playing this week…

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:07

    Probably hold both Hugh, gotta back em in now.

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 17:40

The C pick is quite interesting this week, with all the main C choices being under some sort of doubt. Danger injured, Titch facing a strong tag and Dusty having a poor record against the dees. Reckon we might need to look for left field C choices, or take a little less from our VCs. Thoughts on Fyfe and Gawn as C options? Fyfe been a bit up and down but playing at Optus. Do the dogs have any taggers? And Gawn should monster Nank this week, but i can remember2 years ago when many people captained him, and he spat out a 60.

    Sandyf62 · 20/04/2018 at 17:51

    I'm putting the VC on either Buddy or Cogs and the C on Fyfe.

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 18:25

    Fyfe and Gawn both good options. I am going Grundy.

iLoveNMFC · 20/04/2018 at 17:44

Lloyd or Sicily?
Cheers community.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:02

    Sicily by miles ! Cheaper, averaging more…no contest.

      Derek · 20/04/2018 at 18:24

      I’m starting to think Siscily might be worth the risk

        Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:27

        Hey Derek, yeah reckon he's gonna be ok, I was hellbent on trading him out when he got suspended but something else happened that forced me to keep him, glad I did now, you said he has the easiest job in the Hawks, loose man in defence, I thought you would've started with him mate.

          Tibor · 20/04/2018 at 21:17

          Next flog tantrum just a matter of time. As soon as someone mans him up and things aren't going his way away it goes. Simply cannot help himself. Do we seriously see him have one game back and say he's fine now.

          Just promise me you don't work on the parole board

            Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:38

            Hoping he doesn't flogarise himself again anytime soon Tibor, he's justifying his selection so far.

              Goat · 20/04/2018 at 23:10

              Very amused with all the ranting about Sicily on this forum 2 weeks ago. No rants now. People looking to trade him in after one “calmish” game. He was and is a good pick. He misses another week- I’ll cover that.

                Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 23:13

                Who remembers 2 weeks ago?…move on mate, things change week to week.

Crowboy94 · 20/04/2018 at 17:54

Can't believe how many rookies have been traded out this week in the most traded out….. especially since most have more money to make and are playing still.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:00

    People want instant gratification these days Crowboy, the way of the world now..gotta think more big picture in Supercoach.

Jono · 20/04/2018 at 18:04

Is Fritsch playing for Casey?

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 20/04/2018 at 18:07

    Yes named on half fwd

    Krups · 20/04/2018 at 18:09

    Hmm think he is out if named at half forward flank?

      INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 19:02

      Bernie Vince is named in the midfield with a 12 man bench. So we can't tell yet

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 18:11

If Fristch is out, can we trust using him as the loophole this week? Should we be worried about him being a late in?

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 20/04/2018 at 18:17

    Doubt he will front up so soon TOM Looks like Hannan could come in

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:30

      You reckon he's just being rested Neil?..and he'll get back in soon?…thinking maybe trading Ryan to Guelfi a week early for cover, cause I have none right now.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/04/2018 at 18:48

        Dont tell me that has presented a VC loop oppotunity?

    Krups · 20/04/2018 at 18:21

    Just see if he plays in the VFL team

NEIL DemonsDelight · 20/04/2018 at 18:15

well done KEV always a great read Fritsch appears to be out MIGHT CHANGE TRADES NOW

Jack · 20/04/2018 at 18:25

What to do with Dom Barry?
Hold or trade to coffield

    Ja191 · 21/04/2018 at 10:12

    If you have someone like a garlet in your forward line I’d hold a week and trade barry to guelfi via dpp

Krups · 20/04/2018 at 18:31

I am trading to Coffield. Which will also give me a def/mid swing

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:43

    Nice one.

cashcows · 20/04/2018 at 18:34

Who should I bring in…

Gray, Franklin or Greene?

Joanna · 20/04/2018 at 18:38

I need to trade out Venables or Fristch. I can use one trade to get Taranto or two to get Gray.
What should I do?

    BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 18:40

    Trade Venables out of those two. I think you missed the boat on Taranto.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:42

    Use one and get rid of Venables, Taranto plays round 14 bye , so does Gray but who is the other player you'd have to trade if you got Gray?

      Joanna · 20/04/2018 at 20:14

      Bonner who I have had from the start to Mirra which would give me Gray. Worth it, or go to the Essendon rookie who played ok last week.
      I do see Gray as a keeper.

        Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:30

        Maybe hold on Bonner Joanna, and just use the one this week..not worth gambling on an only one week rookie, better off waiting.
        Taranto, 3 tons out of 4 games though, could be a keeper.

        Phil · 20/04/2018 at 20:48

        Gray a keeper? He is the number 1 FWD by quite a distance I think

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/04/2018 at 18:49

    Who do u see as a keeper?

KSinny · 20/04/2018 at 18:40

is it worth trading out Fritch to get Omera via DPP?

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:45

    Yeah I guess if you have a spare 192 grand.

      KSinny · 20/04/2018 at 20:00

      Yeh I've got 200k

Dee · 20/04/2018 at 18:47

27 Trades – 93k
DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Bobber, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)
MID: Danger, Titch, Martin, J Kelly, Fyfe, Finlayson, T Kelly, Banfield (Brayshaw, Holman, Barry)
RUCK: Natanui, Gawn (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, Billings, D Smith, Petracca, Christensen, Henry (Fritsch, Garlett)

Just need help with trades this week. Maybe Brayshaw to Coffield? Or hold. Let me know your trade thoughts.
Cheers

gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 18:47

Who to field out of Mirra or Richards

Davo · 20/04/2018 at 18:53

Hi Community, Looking to Trade Josh Kelly to either Clayton Oliver or Macrae. Thoughts?? Cheers all.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 18:59

    Good one..either or are good options, flip a coin if you like.

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 18:58

Should we be choosing the VC as if Fristch will play tuesday, so pick Cogs or Laird? Or bank on the fact he wont play, which means i can VC Fyfe or Danger

prizza · 20/04/2018 at 18:59

Fritz may still play ,, not a given thats why there is 10 on the vfl bench

theRealPod · 20/04/2018 at 19:02

I was tossing up between the two Swans. I'm with you Derek, Parker it is.

NEIL DemonsDelight · 20/04/2018 at 19:04

Casey has named a 12 man bench the team includes GARLETT BUGG PEDERSON and FRITSCH They play Sunday so any or all may play with MELBOURNE Too early to call

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:06

    Not good enough Neil, go into Melbourne headquarters right now and bloody ask someone lol

    Captain Risky · 20/04/2018 at 19:14

    Fox sports were saying Fritsch was out, one other as well, think it was Bugg

      prizza · 20/04/2018 at 19:28

      just buddy up tonight , simple

Dale · 20/04/2018 at 19:06

Goldy bleeedin ca$h! Cut him loose or back him in and hope he can come good? He looks horrible since Majak has come in down back. Preuss also can’t be far away

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:10

    Straight to DOGDOG…(Nicnat)..sounds good!

    johnno2908 · 20/04/2018 at 19:41

    Im thinking the same thing. Just cant bring myself to actually do it. Might have a few beers and get the courage to bring him in and chuck the big VC on him. 27 trades, but I think I am also going to use one on Lobb to Taranto.

      Johnny · 21/04/2018 at 10:03

      Thinking the same! Goldy is losing the $$$ And nicnat looks good and is dirt cheap. Don’t buy into this “nicnat will get rested soon” nonsense. He will have a week off at his bye n that’s it. His value is fantastic imo

Tommo · 20/04/2018 at 19:21

Dusty or Mitchell?

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:33

    Michell first I reckon.

Keenbutclueless · 20/04/2018 at 19:25

I need Doedee to drop a doo-doo tonight. Broke all the rules. Traded him out to bring Hurley in. The only way this plan works is if he drops a bad score tonight. Sometimes you need to do the opposite of everyone else if you need to catch up.
Can I suggest on the strength of that you should VC him. I will surely be smote by the SC gods for such a move.

    Pranav Santhosh · 20/04/2018 at 19:30

    reverse that trade immediately

    Derek · 20/04/2018 at 19:38

    You must be going ok. Able to get drop a guy averaging 85 and a BE of 25

    Adelaide defenders might see a fair bit of the ball tonight.

    Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 19:44

    IT'S NOT TOO LATE!!!

    Reverse the trade

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 20:24

    I REALLY hope that you didn't do this. Doedee 45 at QT…

    hedski · 20/04/2018 at 20:37

    I'm going bad Keen but ouch if you did that mate.

    SC_Donkey · 20/04/2018 at 20:43

    I was considering it. With Sloane being out, his midfield time will increase.

    Sc_Wow · 20/04/2018 at 21:03

    Lol

    JEL · 20/04/2018 at 21:04

    Yep, that's working so far at half time.

    David C · 22/04/2018 at 11:29

    Thanks for that Keen. Doedee ton.

      Keenbutclueless · 22/04/2018 at 15:35

      Glad someone benefited from my ineptitude

Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:28

Shane Yarran found dead in his home today, pretty sad news, he was only 28 and Police said "no suspicious circumstances", that usually means suicide or overdose or something like that, sad to hear of such a young bloke passing away.

    pod · 20/04/2018 at 19:41

    Rest In Peace Shane Yarren

    INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 21:19

    Very sad news Russty. RIP Shane

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 19:29

Loophole Doedee or Mills? Other one starts on field. I known Doedee is the rookie but everyone has him, where if Mills stinks it up, it can cost me big time

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 20:02

    late I know, but I hope you backed Millsy in.

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:06

      10 mins into the first quarter mate, a bit early to call yet. 🙂

      TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 20:30

      In the end, barring a keeffe late in, will get both scores. Started Mills on field and looped doedee

      Derek · 20/04/2018 at 21:07

      Mills played midfield nearly all second quarter. 52 at HT

        Marty · 20/04/2018 at 23:13

        Glad I got rid of Mills.

Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 19:32

I have a feeling Buddy is going huge tonight. I've traded Zorko to him and whacked the vc on. Could be the worst trade ever but you gotta have a crack sometimes.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:37

    Zorko will keep bleeding for awhile Rick so not a bad call I reckon, Buddy is a keeper and in great form this year, better to have players in your side from better teams.

    AdsyAA · 20/04/2018 at 19:40

    Same, gone Billings to Buddy. Hope so anyway. Watch Billings drop a 140 tomorrow though!

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:46

      You won't regret that trade, the Saints are shite this year, have regressed to a low point almost unprecedented.

        AdsyAA · 20/04/2018 at 19:49

        Too right Russty, its a constant cycle of rising hopes turning to crap for us supporters unfortunately.

        paul · 21/04/2018 at 07:43

        hahaha lets hope not

    Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 20:06

    Looking like a very bad trade. Sigh…

      Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:09

      Buddy will be a good trade Rick…too early to call yet, but I'd rather back him than Billings.

        Jim_bob321 · 20/04/2018 at 20:28

        Well he is off to a horrid start

          Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:32

          But he's the guy you want there at the end, won me plenty of finals last year with his 170.

    Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 21:03

    Looking for a 100 point second half Bud. Dont let me down you big sexy bastaard!

      Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 21:51

      FML.

        Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:53

        Think about the long game mate lol…you'll hate him this week, and love him come finals time.

        Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 22:29

        Might rage trade him back out. Haha

          David C · 22/04/2018 at 11:33

          Might be real cheap in a few weeks if he has another stinker.

TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 19:46

Luke Parker VC. Rip that Adelaide midfield to shreds!!!

    JJJ · 20/04/2018 at 19:47

    Great call, i am banking on him getting some big points too

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 19:48

    I'm hoping Gibbs gets tagged so Ellis Yoelman van crack a big score lol
    Why do I have Ellis Yoelman you ask?…not really sure haha

      Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 20:13

      He's a good player Russty. I enjoy watching him play. Could go big.

        Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:28

        Thanks guys, hoping he can get a 90 or 100, that'd be nice.

      Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 20:17

      I think he is. I'm not paying a lot of attention, but I haven't seen him very often

      SmugBugga · 20/04/2018 at 20:30

      1 more point and he'd have matched JPK+Hanna for the qrtr. Not seedsman but not a disgrace

JJJ · 20/04/2018 at 19:48

Just went Josh Kelly to Heeney. I don't want to give up on Kelly but concerned about how he will be managed. Will swing Heeney to my forwards in due time.

    pod · 20/04/2018 at 21:04

    Same here

      pod · 20/04/2018 at 22:41

      Good Call

Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 20:22

I need to get my stuff straight.

On one hand, I want Sydney to win to do well in tipping.
On the other, LAIRD GOT A FREE KICK!!!!

What am I doing? not only with this sport but with my life.

On another note. Seedsman on 55, FIFTY-FIVE at QT

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:26

    Hahah, did you bring Seedsman in this week Ty?…if you did…good call!

      Tyruddanaut · 20/04/2018 at 20:45

      Nah, but three of my opponents did

    SmugBugga · 20/04/2018 at 20:27

    57 actually.

ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 20:25

benched doedee :/ hopefully bonner finlayson and murray do better

    DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 20:31

    Same.. oh well nice cash flow

      ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 20:40

      yeah would rather him score well and make money instead of have a bad game but i benched him i think

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:34

    I benched him too, but I have Keefe…to sub.

      ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 20:40

      well played, i have murphy to sub in …..

        Phil · 20/04/2018 at 20:42

        murphy from Adelaide? That ain't gonna work

          Ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 21:07

          Yeah I know should of just played him over Murray tbh

      Defying_Madness · 20/04/2018 at 20:41

      Me too, bless loopholes

        Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:43

        Blessed, be the loopholes 🙂

          Defying_Madness · 20/04/2018 at 21:52

          In before Keefe late in and we are all left crying

    JohnDJ59 · 20/04/2018 at 21:39

    Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, have been my on field rookies since round two.

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 20:29

If keeffe is a late in tomorrow… gonna be a nervous wait until tomorrow arvo to make sure I get Doedees score

    Josh · 20/04/2018 at 21:11

    I think I’ll actually cry if keefe plays.. bound to happen, just to add to the long list of disappointment which has started with Parker tonight, can’t wait to watch the list grow

Holty01 · 20/04/2018 at 20:31

Seedsman. Any chance someone should put their hand up and say oops, i was wrong?

    belly button fluff · 20/04/2018 at 21:09

    I will. But only to appease the gods. ;P

      Holty01 · 20/04/2018 at 21:18

      Nice call. I dont have him but hell he has been value for money

    SmugBugga · 20/04/2018 at 21:59

    That wow fella was always saying how he was a rubbish pick. maybe wow has a rubbish research strategy?

    Marty · 20/04/2018 at 23:17

    Yes i will. But i did say he will score well until Crouches and Sloane comes back.

    fcabel · 21/04/2018 at 02:02

    I still don't like the pick

    BVB21 · 21/04/2018 at 08:07

    Both Crouches and Sloane out.

    He isn’t a keeper.

    If you started with him it’s worked out but if you traded him in still a wasted trade imo

DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 20:33

Sydney midfield should be ashamed of that effort running to the fwd line or should I say jogging!

NovemberFoxtrotIndia · 20/04/2018 at 20:36

Should have VC'd Doodee!!

    DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 20:42

    He is like Laird 2.0

Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 20:41

Why are Sydney being so shit at the SCG?…lol

    Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 21:04

    Didn't see this coming. Kudos Crows, out thinking them. Still think Swans will come hard 2nd half.

    Phil · 21/04/2018 at 07:54

    The small sized SCG has always suited the Swans because they have always had good contested ball winners.
    But Josh Kennedy looks a shadow of himself, how many times did he lose his feet from minimal contact from the opposition. Hannebry is nowhere near the player he was, and Parker doesn't seem to have improved. Remember these guys kept Tom Mitchell out of that midfield!!!
    Adelaide blew that midfield away last night, without Sloane and Crouch x2…. amazing!!!

DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 20:45

think we have gone well past the time now of Sydney trio being a force in sc

Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 20:45

Doedee, good man.

    Stupid Coach · 20/04/2018 at 21:45

    Typical. I had him on the field instead of Murray last week and he cost me. This week I swapped them around and it looks like it is gonna cost me again. Unfortunately I have no loophole options. The SC gods are clearly not on my side😊

Rick Grimes · 20/04/2018 at 20:57

How far as Hanners fallen! Unbelievable to think he was a near uber premium two years back. Now lucky yo get 50.

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:02

    And Josh Kennedy apparently too, he's fallen a long way in just one year…29 years old now but he seemed to still be pretty good last year.

      Whitey · 20/04/2018 at 21:10

      How is Heeney on 50 at ht? 6 disposals.

        Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 21:13

        Heaps of pressure acts.

        Josh · 20/04/2018 at 21:14

        4 tackles, 2 contested marks and a goal helps

    Marty · 20/04/2018 at 23:19

    Sydney are looking to the future. Their mids aren't doing well in the guts. They have lost a yard (Kennedy, Jack, Hanneberry) and have been great players but there will be a changing of the guard. Steer clear for mine.

    Multi_ · 21/04/2018 at 07:56

    He needs to get back on the grog

JEL · 20/04/2018 at 21:11

Parker, Hannebery, Kennedy + Gibbs, Yolman, Greenwood, is anyone bothering to turn up to the midfield?

    INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 21:24

    Swans mids in particular look shot

Hawks · 20/04/2018 at 21:11

Doedee on the bench along side Murphy (Adel), is now the time to consider trading Hibberd to a rookie that is likely to play, but not this week, gives me Doedee's score, and cash to upgrade to Dangerfield in the upcoming weeks.

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 21:13

    chasing points mate. Your team will be LOSING a premium this week and potential cash gen if that rookie doesn't get up in the future.

      Hawks · 20/04/2018 at 21:15

      Your right, I should just be happy to pocket the cash generation, and if someone in the back-line is a late out, then its a bonus in terms of points also.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:21

I cant believe there hasn’t been any heat on Kennedy since being made Syd capt. Been ordinary for a while.

INPieman · 20/04/2018 at 21:26

If I was a Crows fan I'd say Ta Ta Lever & thanks for the 2 first round picks. Doedee is a gun

    DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 21:31

    1000%

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 21:42

    Yeah right?…not a really big hole left there with that departure hahha

    Whatyasmokin · 21/04/2018 at 09:42

    Yep he is, has good composure back there.

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 21:32

Callum Mills lot of midfield time tonight. About time!!!

    TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 21:51

    Grrr jinxed him, didnt move after i posted this 🙁

      Derek · 20/04/2018 at 21:56

      He is tagging. Don’t think it looks permanent.

      Scored 4pts in the 3rd quarter.

        TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 22:30

        yeah only scored10pts after half time. Very disappointing

Jim_bob321 · 20/04/2018 at 21:42

I guess Captain R Gray

TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 21:55

Parker looks like yet a flop VC selection.

But who cares when Doedee is on field, Heeney is doing the business and Laird is racking them up again.

Over to you captain Fyfe!!

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 22:00

    Yeah mate no biggy, Fyfe will smash it for ya..hopefully!

Stupid Coach · 20/04/2018 at 21:55

Option 1: Brayshaw to Coffield and J Kelly to Dusty – leaves me with 25 trades and $273k
Option 2: Brayshaw to Coffield and J Kelly to Macrae – 25 trades/$313k
Option 3: Brayshaw to Coffield -26 trades/ 370k and try to get Dusty or Macrae next week when their price could drop.

Thoughts?

    Goat · 20/04/2018 at 23:03

    1

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 23:07

    Kelly to Macrae…hold onto Brayshaw …for now.

      Stupid Coach · 21/04/2018 at 06:20

      Thanks Russty and Goat. Appreciate the advice. I think you just highlighted the difficulty I am having in terms of these trades. I am leaning towards bringing Macrae in and wait for Dusty to drop in price but also realise that Dusty is a must have.

BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 21:59

Heeney, Laird and Doedee.

Brilliant start to the week.

And it's only the start of the 4th quarter!

    TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 22:12

    Love it. After last week, nice to get off to a decent start

Doc · 20/04/2018 at 22:01

Play it safe-ish with Greene VC knowing I will definitely have a loophole option in Barry or VC Fyfe and hope Fritsch gets rested for a week if he goes huge?

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 22:30

    I'm going Fyfe.

Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 22:17

[email protected] kick straight isaac

    Pranav Santhosh · 20/04/2018 at 22:19

    he kicked those 2 would of been 130+ i reckon would take that as VC

      Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 22:24

      tbh i'd be taking it anyways

        Ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 22:32

        I should take heeney score of 123 but I'm most likely going to back danger in

          DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 22:36

          More like 145+

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2018 at 22:36

    Agreed, I wish they'd stop saying how good Adelaide were though, I thought it was more we were useless for half a game….
    only positive I can see is franklins price drop in a few weeks time

      The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 22:43

      Shocking game that Swans, that was the Adelaide magoos midfield out there.

        Swans2012 · 20/04/2018 at 23:05

        Agreed….I think we played decent footy for about a quarter and still somehow came within2 goals …ahh well we move on and try again next week… but gee how good is Heeney, if only we could clone him (and he could kick straight)

      Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 23:07

      I deadset nearly threw my remote at the TV screen tonight. So frustrating. I can't stand Tex Walker – biggest tosser in the AFL. Everytime he got the footy I wanted to slap him. Dragons lost in the NRL today as well so a shit night all around for me.

        DacZawson · 21/04/2018 at 10:48

        How's he a tosser?

      SC_Sixty6 · 21/04/2018 at 11:28

      You can only play as good as the opposition lets you.

KSinny · 20/04/2018 at 22:30

Should I take Heeneys 126 as VC or put the C on Titch, Fyfe or Dusty?

    Ahmad rubas · 20/04/2018 at 22:32

    I'd give Fyfe a go this week

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 22:35

    Make the call yourself mate, you don't always have to ask other people what's the best thing to do, all part of the fun, making your own calls, and learning from it. 🙂

    The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 22:48

    We all have our own opinion on what a good score is Skinny but I don't take anything below 130.

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2018 at 23:26

    I'd probably take it, feeling nervous this round…..

    JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 02:32

    After last week,take it.

    joe · 21/04/2018 at 08:12

    I'd take it, with Titch and Dusty both likely to cop heavy tags this week. I don't think I would ever trust Fyfe with the C. He's purely a VC option for me.

BrownlowBoy · 20/04/2018 at 22:31

With that Gary Rohan score review point, did anyone else think it came off Heeney after the touch?

    DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 22:35

    Might have. Reverse angle would have been nice

    gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 22:36

    It come off Heeney's boot as I saw it.. But they didn't review that

    Doc · 20/04/2018 at 22:36

    I thought for sure it came off Heeney as well and maybe? nicked the post but they only showed that angle once

    Valens_FC · 20/04/2018 at 22:44

    Agree – but never going to get picked up. Score reviews are an embarrassment, as amateur as it gets. Bad angles every time, total morons doing the reviews (the geeser sounds like a robot whose had a labotomy) and Instead of being ashamed by it what does the AFL do? Take extra money for a new sponsorship that draws even more attention to it.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 20/04/2018 at 23:05

    Should have been kicking n danger

    Sc_Wow · 20/04/2018 at 23:08

    You guys need to go to spec savers not even close

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 23:17

    I was washing my hair at the time due to the extremely exciting nature of the game at the time.

Steeeve · 20/04/2018 at 22:32

Disappointing last quarter from Laird. Dropped a sitter then went missing. Was my VC. Oh well can't complain, had him Heeney and Doedee on field. C locked in Danger now. I paid top price, gotta back him in.

TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 22:34

Thoughts on Danger VC and Fyfe C? Also got Dusty, Titch and Gawn as potential options. Using fristch as loophole and if hes a late in, can just whack the C on Dusty

    hedski · 20/04/2018 at 22:55

    Danger and Fyfe are playing at the same time Tommy.

      TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 22:56

      ahahaha wow, how did i miss that. VC Danger or Fyfe?

        hedski · 20/04/2018 at 22:58

        Both good, I'm vcing Greene, into Danger or Fyfe….or Gawn or Dusty.

    Swans2012 · 20/04/2018 at 23:06

    Sorry did I miss the Fritsch out call?

      TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 23:10

      Hasnt been confirmed yet, but has been named in the vfl lineup

DavidSA · 20/04/2018 at 22:34

VC on Heeney damn he could have gone huge in the last 15 mins 😭

Ando · 20/04/2018 at 22:37

Had the VC in Laird but not gonna take his 111.

Put the C on Fyfe or Gawn?

Would go Cogs, but got a feeling he'll get tagged.

gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 22:41

Keefe to be a late in tomorrow!!

    KSinny · 20/04/2018 at 22:45

    If he is I'll quit supercoach because I used him to loop Doedee.

      The Ranger · 20/04/2018 at 22:47

      Same here Skinny!

      TommyC99 · 20/04/2018 at 23:15

      As did i!

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 22:46

    Stkilda to make the top 8 this year! 🙂 !!

      gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 22:49

      Why didn't start him on field

      gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 22:50

      Yeah and Winx will get beat too Russty

      TOPHAWK1 · 20/04/2018 at 22:51

      Hehehehe. Doedee just do! He did just that. Good boy.

        gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 22:53

        Yeah he's a good one Toppa

Andy · 20/04/2018 at 22:42

I'm thinking these trades, 1 or 2 or hold?
J Kelly to Cognilio
Brayshaw to Coffield.

Cheers for your input

    fcabel · 21/04/2018 at 02:04

    Just the first IMO

Sc_Wow · 20/04/2018 at 22:55

Let’s not get too wrapped up in SC, there would be no SC without footy and what a win by the crows.
Very gutsy. Carn the crows

    Russty_ · 20/04/2018 at 23:09

    More like, jeez Sydney were extremely shite tonight…congrats to Adelaide though.

    SmugBugga · 20/04/2018 at 23:19

    Seedsman looking better every week, DPP as well. Can you believe that he was only 300k to start after the way he finished last year? They obviously don't include finals scores into the following years SC price. Strange that so few have him he was always going to have a high scoring role

    hedski · 21/04/2018 at 00:01

    I went off footy for a few years, preferred to surf, play golf and drink beer.
    SC is what made me keen on it again (and beer).
    Great win by the crows..
    Pity i tipped sydney

      SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 01:01

      Thoughts exactly Hedski. If it wasn't for SC there'll be no Footy for me, it's not like how it use to be. It's gotten too soft, AFL has taken away how footy is meant to be played.

    Great fact hunt · 21/04/2018 at 06:14

    Can’t agree with you there wow. There would be no footy without supercoach. I am a Carlton supporter lol

gator59 · 20/04/2018 at 23:11

Buddy to drop in price nicely now

    Finnius · 20/04/2018 at 23:21

    always going to happen. That's why many didn't start him.

    Marty · 21/04/2018 at 10:35

    When he doesn't chase and tackle and then blames his teammates for not passiing it to him he looks ordinary. They were playing 2 on him last night so he never looked comfortable. Adelaide did their homework.

Don · 20/04/2018 at 23:46

When this weekend will we find out whether Fritsch is confirmed to play for Casey?

    SC_Kev7 · 21/04/2018 at 13:05

    Tues/Wed teams drop Monday night, Don

Jeff · 21/04/2018 at 01:46

Kreuzer to Grundy or Nicnat or hold? Grundy is 120k more but he is also a nice POD compared to Nice Nat. If I went to Grundy I'd have 50k left. Will nicnats playing time be an issue?

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 07:38

    If you dont have cover for Kruezer then move him on. Grundy if you have the funds

Stupid Coach · 21/04/2018 at 05:39

I put the VC on laird which hasn't quite worked. Should I leave the C on Danger or go with Cogs, Titch (like all of my opponents) or Gawn.

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 07:36

    Danger has a corked calf. Be wary of that

      Stupid Coach · 21/04/2018 at 08:22

      Thanks INPieman. I know Danger is carrying an injury. I check tonight before the final team sheets are released in case he is a late out. Perhaps titch is the safest option as all my opponents have the C on him.

        NoLanguage · 22/04/2018 at 20:33

        Hope you didn't put it on Titch

    joe · 21/04/2018 at 08:10

    Titch is going be to tagged by Jacobs.

    SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 08:51

    Titch might have a problem with a pure tagger like Jacobs.
    Danger didn't look good in the last qtr last week has a bit of calf issue.
    Cogs playing his 100th game this week could go well against the saints, worth a crack of putting a C on him.
    I'm putting my faith on Gawn this week.

      CheekyNandos7 · 21/04/2018 at 10:28

      I read somewhere that the Saints are apparently pretty good at restricting opposition midfielders (SuperCoach wise) so might be a better VC option with one of the Giants forwards, Greene, Patton, Cameron etc.

    Phil · 21/04/2018 at 09:53

    1.Mitchell
    2.Danger
    3.Gawn
    4.Cogs

    Mitchell still had 14 clearances last week & Hawthorn won the game by 10 goals, so not sure the tag worked. It meant he only had it 24 instead of 40, but maybe that just let others off the chain. Jacobs might tag O'Meara the way he played last week.

    Marty · 21/04/2018 at 10:37

    Gawn for me this week as captain. Big ground big match. And now with Fritsch out it allows me to go Fyfe is life into Gawn for more security.

    Blueth · 22/04/2018 at 09:56

    Gawny is gonna be angry, beat Wanknervous in the hitouts and match him around the ground.
    Somehow i missed Cripps and Fyfe so Gawny is the man.

JosephA · 21/04/2018 at 07:52

Fyfe as Captain? Pickens their best tigger not playing. Who could tag him?

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 09:24

    I like Fyfe too against the dogs in Perth.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/04/2018 at 09:35

    Like it. Big game at home.

Phil · 21/04/2018 at 08:11

Who needs to go more Kreuzer or Kelly?
I'm thinking Kreuzer as I back Kelly to Ave closer to the best midfielder I don't have compared to what Kreuzer will average behind Grundy.

Plus, Carlton not being a top8 team might put Kreuz away long term to get the iniury 100% whereas GWS will have to play Kelly or their season is over.

    Whatyasmokin · 21/04/2018 at 09:21

    Dont agree that GWS will risk Josh Kelly……why bother when they have that much depth and are ranked top of the comp?

    Problem with Kelly is I doubt he'll be back till the game against the cats in round 7, as they have the saints and brisbane between now and then.

    That will be 3 rounds without him, lowering his total output for the season dramatically and not to mention the possibility of even MORE games missed.

    Kreuzer is a machine when he's in good form as we saw last year…….I wouldnt be too quick to make that call yet regarding not averaging as good as grundy. Only four rounds passed……

    SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 09:29

    If you held on Kreuzer this long, might as well keep him. His dropped a fair bit of price already and a week rest might do him good, Carlton made a mistake of playing him last week. We saw how formidable Kreuzer in the ruck on Round 1 before going down with the groin.***Keep***

    JKelly as what smokin said above. I'll be willing to move him on(moved him on as soon I heard the news)

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 14:05

    trade both I reckon

SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 08:38

Just a little whisper from the Donc😏

***NicNat*** to those that has him. Ahemmm! VC this week, could go huge if given more TOG.

    TommyC99 · 21/04/2018 at 08:49

    Yeah was thinking that, but we havent seen the ceiling yet. TOG is an issue and with Fristch most likely out, we can loop the likes of Danger or Fyfe

      SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 09:00

      Certainly TOG is a concern, I think this week would the perfect time for Simmo to give NicNat more time against the Blues. He'll be up against Phillips and Casboult should be an easy one for him.

      Fyfe or Gawn would be my Captain for this week.

    Dale · 21/04/2018 at 10:00

    Goldy to nicnat this week?

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 10:11

    Lycett is still doing a lot of rucking, now that JJK is back he isn’t going forward as much.

    NicNat will do well, but until he is solo ruck, the massive scores won’t be

      Dale · 21/04/2018 at 10:22

      Let’s hope lycetts days in the 22 are numbered then. Do u have another suggestion for goldy to? Grundy is huge overs!

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 10:37

    Keyword: IF

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 10:49

    If he got more TOG YES but while LYCETT is sharing with him got my doubts DONC Would have been a great pick up though

    Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 13:02

    There has to be a reason his TOG is down. My concern would be that he breaks down when they push him harder. Just my opinion but the best ruck combo would be Gawn and Grundy wouldn't it. I've got Max like everybody else and would like to get Grundy in for Nank but there are more urgent priorities

      The Ranger · 21/04/2018 at 13:12

      I think they're just being really careful with him Tibor and slowly, slowly upping his TOG.
      Hopefully that will mean he doesn't need to be rested and doesn't get injured.

    SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:09

    Couldn't believe I was actually rooting for NicNat not to get a big score.<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😅" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f605.svg"&gt;.O'Connor was my non playing loophole E was on Garlett putrid 21points. Phew!

TommyC99 · 21/04/2018 at 09:12

Which option pls guys?
1. Nic Nat VC, Fyfe C
2. Danger VC Dusty C
3. Fyfe VC, Dusty C
4. Fyfe/Danger VC, Gawn C

    SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 09:15

    All nice options Tommy
    I like #3, if I had Dusty in my team I would go with NicNat into Dusty.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 10:37

    Fyfe VC
    Dusty C

    DacZawson · 21/04/2018 at 10:43

    #3 followed by #1

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 12:49

    I'm a bit worried about going Dusty as C now, in 10 games played against Melbourne he only averaged 87.5.
    Might go the big beard instead, what the hell lol

      Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 13:06

      Me too, really like Fyfe at home this week. Surely must be due a decent captain score had Dusty and Titch last two weeks and niether could manage a ton

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:09

        Yeah Tibor I'm far from decided yet, the C button's been getting swapped all over the place lol.
        Probably end up on Fyfe.

CalebCripps922 · 21/04/2018 at 09:14

Hello Lads I currently have 26 trades left, I have Josh Kelly I’ve heard many different stories this week. He’s just a bit sore and it’s just precautionary or he won’t be the same this year. Should I hold or trade to Oliver Or Coniglio any help appreciated!

    SC_Kev7 · 21/04/2018 at 13:04

    Kruze is the cautionary tale here, CC. Came back too early and hasn't been the same. Kelly two weeks out with this groin suggests to me it's a bit more than "just a bit sore".

Cam · 21/04/2018 at 09:29

Murray or Bonner on field?
Can't loophole them

    Jace · 21/04/2018 at 09:30

    Murray

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 09:44

    Murray. I will have both onfield due to my 2 premo backline structure.

      Cam · 21/04/2018 at 09:52

      Cheers boys

TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 09:30

I like Fyfe as captain. Bloody Parker does my head in. Seriously……..

I think Freo will be extremely fired up tonight. They will want to win that game for Shane Yarran who tragically passed away yesterday. RIP mate.

Even just for that reason, I am happy to give the C to Fyfe.

    SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 09:34

    I like the Fyfe Captain option for this week. I just hate it that Ross has been putting him up forward more this season. It's what makes me not putting C on Fyfe, but certainly good for VC each week.

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 09:41

      Welcome back Doncs!! I knew you would be back after that depressing round last week.

      Fyfe just has such a high ceiling. Just can't ignore that. I am watching the weather closely today. Showers are forecast for Perth this afternoon. If it is wet it throws another uncertain variable up. If the weather is OK, then I will run with him. Dangerfield is carrying a niggle and Titch has Jacobs this week. The only other bloke I am tempted on is Max Gawn. But he does have to deal with Nankervis, who is my R2 ruckman!

        SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 10:00

        The weather can play to his favor him, though his airial cp might drop, but he loves getting in and under at everything more clearances, ground cp will surely in crease. And might not spend much time up forward. Good call TH<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;

        Putting my C on Gawn this week, he'll get the better of the Tank. The Tigs don't have a pure tagger, Oliver might go ok but I'm depending on him to get the Gawn taps.

        And thanks mate. SC point scoring wasn't the reason of me wanting to quit writing/posting in here. It was the crap that was going on in the community, thankfully it has stopped.

          NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 10:52

          I think we are all relieved the crap's gone back to the good stuff FOOTY Cheers Doncs

    PuntRoadRoar · 21/04/2018 at 11:58

    RIP Shane.
    An extremely talented, very troubled young man who will be missed by many.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 09:47

Anyone who has JJK.
Whack the VC on him.
Big score is on the cards.

    DacZawson · 21/04/2018 at 10:42

    1.6% ownership
    Huge POD but doubt any serious players have him unless they couldn't be patient with Billings

    David C · 22/04/2018 at 11:50

    29

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 09:54

Traded kelly to dusty on Monday
Last night got thinking about how dusty goes against the dees and reversed trades.
Is there a reason why he struuggles against the dees?
Other option is kelly to oliver this week and bonner to hurley next. About $40k short to do this if trade in dusty unless bonner goes ape sh1t this week

Surely i go dusty right?
Oliver/hurley combo is tempting but.

Right place for this as it is that panic button

    Ja191 · 21/04/2018 at 10:09

    Jones will play a similar role he did to mitchel on Cotchin or Martin. I said the same thing last week – dusty will score bad with the robertson tag and what does he do, scores 140. I’d just get him in. brought him in for kelly myself

      Corey · 21/04/2018 at 10:20

      I brought in Dusty for Kelly, like Dusty can win you games much like Buddy

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 10:29

    Hi Trigga, mate you are going to need Dusty sooner rather than later. Might as well grab him for Kelly now. I dont have Kelly or Dusty (yet) I will have to be patient to get him. He will be my first upgrade target, Although the way Luke Parker is going, its bloody tempting to look at other "options" to get Dusty….Cheers mate.

    JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 12:51

    I know the Kelly to Dusty is straight out the best trade,you don't even have to think about it, but looking at your other option of Oliver this week and Bonner to Hurley next week, looks like a better overall plan.

Jim_bob321 · 21/04/2018 at 10:06

Who does the community think will perform better as captain..
Fyfe or Robbie Gray
Thanks

    Corey · 21/04/2018 at 10:21

    Fyfe

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 10:43

    Definitely Fyfe
    AVG: 160 @ Optus

      Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 13:56

      140

Corey · 21/04/2018 at 10:18

Can we loophole Fritsch

    CheekyNandos7 · 21/04/2018 at 10:21

    Named on field for Casey so atm I'm assuming we can?

    Marty · 21/04/2018 at 10:38

    Yes. As long as there are no injuries between now and the match and he's not a late in.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:13

    Only if he doesn’t play

Marty · 21/04/2018 at 10:29

Community Fritsch is named in Casey's side for the match v Tigers playing at half forward. Loophole averted.

    Hi Kurt, I'd be tempted to punt Armitage to O'Meara..could be a keeper too if he doesn't break.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:17

    I would trade out Armitage and swing Garlett/Crowden into the mids. Then I would bring in Gray, McLean, Sicily or another premium which you like. This provides a handy DPP and increases your point generation.

    You can do what you want with Billings, maybe a Defensive premium? Finlayson in the mids also has a good DPP with Coffield

Ja191 · 21/04/2018 at 10:44

garlett or henry and holman, fogarty or banfield on field? leaning with holman/henry

    Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:29

    I've got Holman and Henry currently.

DacZawson · 21/04/2018 at 10:49

Not too much variation in scores so far. More than half my league is sitting on 333 after Laird, Doedee and Heeney's scores.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:20

    The most owned player.
    The most owned defensive premium.
    The most owned forward premium.

    Recipe for very little difference

Rick · 21/04/2018 at 11:02

Should I be trading J Kelly this week or hold?
Who is the smart choice?

    Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:28

    Trade. Coniglio if you don't already have him.

        CaptainObvious · 21/04/2018 at 19:30

        I don't have either, they're not obvious selections

musicissport · 21/04/2018 at 11:12

considering the following trades, would love to hear everyone's thoughts:

OUT Goldy, LDU
IN English, Conigliio

leaves me with $99K & 25 trades.

    Dale · 21/04/2018 at 11:19

    Goldy to English seems very risky? Is he R1 or R2… he will need to play the season out unless ya wanna trade him out again burning two trades on goldy

Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:19

Take Laird's 111 or C one of Fyfe or Gawn?

    SC_Sixty6 · 21/04/2018 at 11:27

    Never take anything under 130 minimum. Go fyfe

      Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:27

      Cheers 66

      Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:27

      So you would go with Fyfe over Gawn and Oliver?

        pod · 21/04/2018 at 11:30

        Yes because he is avg 160 at optus stadium and dogs don't tag easy c choice

        SC_Sixty6 · 21/04/2018 at 11:30

        I'd be going fyfe myself but I'm sucked into danger.

        Fyfe plays well against dogs. Dogs new to the stadium as well

          Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:32

          Cheers mate

    Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 13:14

    Definitely Fyfe at home. Not clear how his two scores at Optus are 160 and 120 and that makes a 160 average but certainly best option this weekend

      Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:28

      140's still pretty good too though 🙂

        Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 13:35

        Of course it is but if you make the call based on the stat that stat is irrelevant given it is only two games and wrong anyway. He is a gun in form playing at home so I'll be picking him

Swans2012 · 21/04/2018 at 11:28

Just had another look at coffields stats, to me he looks like one not to be missed, I smell a 75 average and a nice bag of cash

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 11:57

    Would be nice if I could go Venables to Coffield, but not swing

    Otherwise O’conner or Barry

Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:30

Why in the world did I go with Bonner over Doedee?!?! Wow.

Ando · 21/04/2018 at 11:43

Start Waterman or Garlett on field?

Leaning towards Waterman but thinking that JJK will probably steal some of his points.

Wondering if we started a public awareness campaign if:
A. SC Stress could be recognised medically as a condition and therefore we could take time off work.
B. SC research could be accepted by employers as a study pathway.
For me a Time Management course during the footy season would probably be a better choice lol.

    SC_Kev7 · 21/04/2018 at 12:58

    Patch is already in a SC therapy course, the panic room broke him…

Donut · 21/04/2018 at 11:56

Avoid fwd donut
Venables to coffield (swinging Garlett fwd)
Or
Venables to Guelfi
Fritsch to Sicily

    SC_Kev7 · 21/04/2018 at 12:56

    Venables to Coff. FWIW I think it's super unlikely Fritsch gets dropped

      Dale · 21/04/2018 at 13:57

      Guelfi. I don’t like the inflated rookie prices. Already been burnt by brayshaw Dow and LDU. Go guelfi looks like he can play

Morzaaa · 21/04/2018 at 12:02

Last minute trade proposition here. Got 260k in the chest and Brayshaw sitting on the midfield pine. Is it worth splashing that cash on upgrading brayshaw to the likes of Acres via swinging Garrett into the mids?? Was originally saving that cash for danger but now I'm thinking of waiting until just before the bye rounds when he has bottomed out and the rookies are ready to go. Thoughts?

    cburgz · 21/04/2018 at 12:16

    You could possibly wait a couple of weeks and use that cash to get Franklin at a discount instead

      Morzaaa · 21/04/2018 at 12:22

      Not a bad idea actually. I've liked the consistency of Acres this year, especially in an average saints team. Think I might just hold and then punt him and a non playing rookie for guelfi and mirra next week pending selection.

    DacZawson · 21/04/2018 at 12:23

    I'd hold – Acres not likely to be a keeper

      Morzaaa · 21/04/2018 at 12:26

      Hold I shall. Guess we will see! Forwards are just hard to pick this year, besides Heeney of course.

hedski · 21/04/2018 at 12:19

Saints v Giants.. No late changes (yet)

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 12:55

    Keep us informed mate, don't need bloody Keefe playing!

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 12:58

    Well there was a late change for me. I got rid of Billings for Heeney

      Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:06

      Nice one Pie, I bet that's relief ..a spud for a premo, think Billings is still a ways away from premo yet.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 13:18

      Surprised u didnt start Heeney pie?

        INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 14:04

        Had surgery so I was a little worried about him in the preseason. But he seems fine. Buddy aside Heeney is already Swans best player

Bill · 21/04/2018 at 12:26

Who to start on field t F6

Garlett or Henry

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 12:54

    Based on consistency so far, I'd say Garlett Bill, he has had 3 reasonable scores out of 4, (60 – 70) and Henry only the one good score out of 3 with 2 bad ones.

deeman · 21/04/2018 at 12:43

WARNING to those using fritsch as a loophole he was also named HFF in casey last week with garlett, brayshaw and wagner all named onfield also
So take the selection with several grains of salt as this happens every week and it is just the tuesday game that is causing the confusion

StevoRivo · 21/04/2018 at 13:00

Field Coffield D6, Finalsyson M8 & Holman emergency?

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:09

    Do you have a non playing mid Steve?

      StevoRivo · 21/04/2018 at 13:32

      No Rusty. Have Banfield, Holman & Garlett. From those 3, Holman the best pick but I’m still thinking his role has changed or he’s injured. If Danger is a late out, then Holman or Banfield can cover.

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:39

        Sounds good then mate..Holman is the doubtful one especially with the turd he dropped last week.

sick of bonner · 21/04/2018 at 13:13

Holman & Bonner to Oliver & Mirra.. bang bang

JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 13:34

After last week I should just put the C on Dusty, but I'm going to give it one more try without him, going on his last three games against the Dees, where he has scored a 92,79 & 85. So my plan is VC Cogs and C Fyfe with Olango as my loophole in case Cogs gets 125+

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 13:43

    Sounds good John, especially with Dusty only averaging 87.5 from 10 games against the Dees, I was tossing up between Fyfe, Gawn and Oliver, reckon it'll stay on Fyfe.
    It'll be a big test for your Dees this week after last week's effort.

      JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 14:00

      I think Fyfe is the safest bet for C this round Russty,although Dusty will probably go big just to prove us wrong.

Ahmad rubas · 21/04/2018 at 13:49

Who would you trade out for coffield? Dow Clark or brayshaw? I've already made my decision and I can't change it now but would like to hear the communties opinion

    Harley · 21/04/2018 at 13:55

    if the trades done then who cares what others think. Stop clogging the thread with pointless posts please

      Pranav Santhosh · 21/04/2018 at 14:02

      fair point just wanted to see what other people thought as it seems common player to trade out this week is brayshaw and i wanted to know why

        BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 14:07

        Just use the one alias mate.

          Pranav Santhosh · 21/04/2018 at 14:13

          switched between phone and laptop thats why it changed

    JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 14:10

    Any of those three would be a good trade out since all three aren't good enough.Have a look at their BE and how much they are going to go up in price or not,if it is under $10,000,then it is usually time to move them on.

      Pranav Santhosh · 21/04/2018 at 14:17

      all three look like poor cash cows but brayshaw had good preseason dow looks like a good player but bad supercoach scorer also clark has been dropped and plays for saints

        JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 14:43

        Plus all three are expensive rookies, needed to get as many $123,900 or under rookies as you could,I tried to keep the high priced rookies down to two for my team.

          Ahmad rubas · 21/04/2018 at 14:57

          Yeah I started with 5 rookies higher than 123.9k! Bonner and Christensen have paid off but can't say the same for Dow Clark brayshaw

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 14:11

    Clarke for me, terrible scorer, poor JS. Need to cut him loose.

      Pranav Santhosh · 21/04/2018 at 14:18

      yeah and he plays for saints but i cant talk as a blues fan 🙂

    Nuggety · 21/04/2018 at 14:57

    I would have said bye to Brayshaw..

      Ahmad rubas · 21/04/2018 at 15:32

      Yeah his breakeven is the highest of the 3 and his average is lower than his breakeven. The reason I got rid of Clark is JS compared to Dow and brayshaw

        Nuggety · 21/04/2018 at 15:37

        Fair call. I have Dow and just hoping for one decent score..

          Ahmad rubas · 21/04/2018 at 16:01

          Yeah I'm just waiting for that one score as well but it's unlikely to come with Kreuzer out this week. He wasn't in my initial team it was actually Brodie once he was ruled I was tossing up between him and Barry and chose dow mainly cause of bias.

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:04

The umpires call against Savage has me so confused.

Free kick against!
He did nothing wrong, everything was allowed. For those who didn’t see it, he bumped Cameron away and he had a collision with Haynes.
Players hip and shoulder all the time; why is it wrong when there is an unintentional injury caused to a player who wasn’t in the direct contest?

It was either a two on one contest or a one on one, and Savage chose one on one. It just ended in a zero in one

INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 14:08

What an awesome kick Finlayson is. Will be a SC pig for a long time

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 14:15

    Quite possibly could be in my team next year as well.

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 14:16

    One of the best kicks in the game isn't he. That left boot is deadly.

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 14:19

    He's an absolute gun, no need to trade him out at all this year I reckon, they found a good one there.

      INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 14:27

      I was thinking Russty if he stays in that role he's a top 6 & no need to get rid of him

        Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 17:48

        Having him and Doedee is pretty handy

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 17:55

    Is he a keeper or just another OTTEN

AuroraBorealis?! · 21/04/2018 at 14:08

Billings is so hard to watch, he just floats around 40 metres from goal and does shit all. Doesnt run, doesn't pressure and when he gets a ball placed onto his chest 30 mtrs out on a slight angle he misses. Absolutely useless.

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 14:15

    As useless as a knitted condom

      INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 14:28

      He's good at kicking points

Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 14:09

Finlayson, Doedee and Murray are THAT good. They will all get to 400k if not more, definitely my very final upgrades. With the lack of premo options in the backline at the moment these blokes could be close to keepers, all averaging around 90.

    DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 14:24

    1 possible keeper out of the 3. No way they are all keepers but agree these 3 plus Kelly are the most important rookies in years to allow them to fatten up so much they start dripping hot creamery butter (goodmorning burger) 🙂

DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 14:19

To those who showed faith in Billings R.I.P

    AuroraBorealis?! · 21/04/2018 at 14:33

    I was very close to trading him, but i guess i just have to hang on to him now. Might make a handy f7 option if st-kilda ever get their shit together.

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 14:48

      The saints are winning though and he is still useless. Think he might have to go

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 14:34

Good boy Paddy

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:44

I'm glad that the Jock Reynolds community advised me not to trade in Coffield.
Brayshaw's third chance has payed off, so far

    JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 15:08

    How do you come to that conclusion,he's looking at a $50,000 price jump next week,plus he has dpp.

      Wedge · 21/04/2018 at 16:33

      I got him mainly for the swing set with the fin. Plus I traded Ryan who wasn't making money who I couldn't trade last week because I needed to loop Stephenson ton. Still got 27 trades so I felt it was worth it. Hopefully good job security. Should make money.

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 14:46

I am seeing some talk of Finlayson being a keeper, @russty
How about Doedee, Murray, Kelly and Holman all are keepers too?
And heck to it, chuck in Olango as well (assuming he doesn't play a game)

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 14:49

    Mate Finlayson is averaging 92 and looking like tonning up again today. Playing a very SC friendly role as well. it is a very real possibility – and here's to hoping.

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 14:53

    Wouldn't go that far mate..out of those 4, Doedee and Kelly could be , time will tell I guess.

JugHead · 21/04/2018 at 14:50

Finlayson you beautiful bastard……
Had to swing him onfield in my mids. Not letting me down.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 14:58

THE LIDS ON TODAY!! 😎
If u read my preseason review on FSC will get the relevance. 🍳

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 15:06

    If only we could trust him

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 15:13

      90,115 and possibly another ton today.
      Not bad for 5 games
      But yep on my never again list cant trust that tissue paper body.

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 16:30

    seb Ross was also great but gotta look at LIDS now

Multi_ · 21/04/2018 at 14:58

If Billings could just kick a couple of goals he would be alright

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 15:10

    He needs to aim for the points to have a chance of kicking a goal

    Marty · 21/04/2018 at 23:02

    Still has a body like an U16 kid

Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 15:01

Wonder what Toby Greene will end up on at full time?..on 15 points at half time, jeez you wouldn't want to have him and Buddy in your squad this week, although I'd want them both later in the season.

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 15:09

    He hasn't even punched anyone. Yet

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 15:14

      Give him time <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🙈" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f648.svg"&gt;

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 15:20

      or kicked

      Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 17:52

      That's real progress that he hasn't done anything that will cause him to be suspended next week. He probably comes out and scores huge next week now

    hedski · 21/04/2018 at 15:17

    Ha ha, I got the vc on him

      Derek · 21/04/2018 at 17:10

      I was thinking someone like Greene would kick the winner

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 17:13

        Steven should've just kicked the bloody thing long..a point would've done!, good to see Saints showing something today though for a change.

          NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 18:05

          great effort Russty GATOR's gonna be happy Coffield looks to be a good pick up Great ball use.I was 1 k short had to take Mirra oh well shiht happens

            gator59 · 21/04/2018 at 18:17

            Didn't see the game Neil… To busy renovating.. They put up a good effort by the sounds

              Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:39

              What renovations are you doing Gat?…sounds hard..are you doing it yourself or supervising the tradies?

            Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:18

            Cheers Neil mate, I passed on Coffield, preferred to save trades this week, I'll get Mirra next week if he goes well, yeah nice to see the Sainters show some nuts today, great effort for them to keep up with and almost steal it from the top of the ladder side, maybe all is not lost this season after all.

Tommo · 21/04/2018 at 15:11

VC Fyfe or Danger?

    JugHead · 21/04/2018 at 15:30

    Fyfe for me. Only because of injury niggles with Danger. He could still go large but I see Fyfe as a safer bet at home

Banga · 21/04/2018 at 15:11

Nic Nat VC option? Or VC Fyfe/Danger and C Gawn?

WoW_Trevor · 21/04/2018 at 15:23

Deledio appears to be getting back into form.
Trigga Happy tipped this back in February

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 16:09

    Going absolutely huge! Looking at 150 here.

      Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:38

      Nice pod there Finn…he's looking good lately.

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 16:27

    worth a look cheap enough

    Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 17:54

    Watched him both games and moving like he used to years ago. Definitely still got it but will his opportunity dry up as gws get players back

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:22

    Hey Trev good to see you make an appearance mate, I remember that article by Trigga, was one of the first you put up I believe?…I was thinking, Lids has been a champ in the past and maybe could be again if he sorts his body out, still young enough at 31 to have a few more good years 🙂

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 15:50

Finally Billings thank God

    Multi_ · 21/04/2018 at 16:21

    Fair play to the sainters showed something today I reckon

    theRealPod · 21/04/2018 at 16:23

    If he could only kick straight

Brett · 21/04/2018 at 16:15

What a game

Multi_ · 21/04/2018 at 16:22

Billings 85 before scaling happy enough with that from him

Ja191 · 21/04/2018 at 16:24

back in fyfe to beat conigs 117?

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 16:28

    I think you need a rule of what you take and what you dont and stick to it. Mine is 127+, so I wouldn't be taking Coniglio, but it is up to you.

NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 16:25

Saints unlucky deserved better Ross a star

    Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 16:27

    Yeah some good signs there for the sainters. Just need to work on conversion

      NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 18:12

      Particularly Billings could be anything Gawn must be his kicking coach I WONDER WHO IS

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:18

        Ben Dixon mate…can't see any improvement there from the past.

      gator59 · 21/04/2018 at 18:19

      Ben Dixon is forward kicking coach for the saints I think Neil

        NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 23:34

        is he any good

Hayden · 21/04/2018 at 16:28

Take the 117 from Cogs or double down on one of Dusty or Danger?

Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 16:28

Nic Nat VC or hope that Fritsch does not play so I can loop someone else?

Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 16:34

Glad I held Bilings. Looked better today. Just needs to learn to kick straight!!

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 17:17

    He'd be going against the grain then mate, Saint's accuracy has been crap for the last 10 years.

      Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 18:05

      He still looked good today!

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:19

        Yeah there might still be some hope for him, and the Saints yet 🙂

DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 16:46

Hmmm this round could be a case of popular VC and C picks that don't score much more than 120?
Martin not historically great against Melbourne
Mitchell gonna get bear hugs from Nth
Danger only 80% I suspect

Might loop Heeney 123 after all unless I roll Lady Luck on Gawn (C) vs Nank

Please take note I don't have Fyfe

    Terrence · 21/04/2018 at 19:17

    put a pipe in it david

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 16:57

Nic Nat looks uncomfortable out there.
This is a bit inappropriate, but if you saw the Paralympics, he’s a bit like the Cerebral Palsy runners. He looks fine in the contests, strong and powerful, but then he slows down and you see he’s struggling.

I don’t think his TOG will increase anytime soon

    TommyC99 · 21/04/2018 at 17:12

    Still scoring well, wouldnt be surprised if he gets rested eventually tho

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 17:23

      Not sure why they didn't give him a break this week with Kreuzer out?

        Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:30

        Phillips can compete with Lycett. He’s improved dramatically since his last AFL appearance.

John · 21/04/2018 at 17:07

do I put the C on Gawn Fyfe or dusty?

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 17:14

    Not sure John, what do you reckon mate?

      John · 21/04/2018 at 17:49

      I was thinking Gawn

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:23

        Yeah good call I reckon, or Fyfe, Dusty doesn't have the best record against the Dees. good luck.

hedski · 21/04/2018 at 17:12

Hoping Fritsch plays, got Garlett covering him on donuts at qtr time….

    Neverweaken · 21/04/2018 at 17:24

    had loopholed Garlett. Guess I dont have to worry now. Hopefully Henry can do well

    INPieman · 21/04/2018 at 17:28

    Lucky Garlett has a negative BE. He's on -8 near HT. His BE is -22. Hoping he can cover that. Went him ahead of Fritsch! FAAAAARK

    Wedge · 21/04/2018 at 17:35

    Thinking if fritsch isn't playing and E garlett has a spud score I might have to trade in guelfi. Annoying cause fritsch has a – BE

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 17:25

Dow starting to show today why he was a high draft pick
Done some good things so far and finding abit of the pill.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:29

    From the rest of the games you’d think he went third round

    CaptainObvious · 21/04/2018 at 18:38

    Starting to get his confidence back after the busted tooth in his first game. He'll continue to improve this year

TommyC99 · 21/04/2018 at 17:28

Glad i was able to loophole Garlett. On -7 halfway through the second. Disgusting!!!

DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 17:29

i don't understand Garlett being -7 he has no disposals according to live fantasy which puts him on 3 but SC it's -7 from 1 kick that was smothered. No frees against or anything to define this weird score

    Sc_Wow · 21/04/2018 at 17:47

    Dropped 2 or 3 marks and his first kick was a bad Clanger

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 18:02

    Can’t believe I put him on field this week

      Goat · 21/04/2018 at 21:43

      I can. Not a bad decision.

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:49

        How is that not a bad decision ? he scored 21. Maybe not bad, but definitely unfortunate.

BlueBaggerJosh · 21/04/2018 at 17:34

Fisher looking good, anyone hold him? I traded to Taranto

    Tibor · 21/04/2018 at 17:57

    Yep still got him he's on field too given Fritsch uncertainty

      BlueBaggerJosh · 21/04/2018 at 18:03

      Kinda regret trading him, Fuc he's a gun

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 21/04/2018 at 18:15

    Yeah BB but lucky need a bit of luck

    Holty01 · 21/04/2018 at 18:16

    Yeah i held. Kept the faith although another bad week and i would have been tempted

Westy · 21/04/2018 at 17:46

So glad I chose to let Roughy go and kept Deledio. That puts him up to over 90 average after only averaging 63 two rounds ago. Hopefully that keeps working upwards. Less than 3% ownership.

Danny · 21/04/2018 at 17:46

Banfield or Holman on field community?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 17:59

    Gotta go with holman

    Banfield good for 60 but holman should score that and then some.

    Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 18:10

    flip a coin. Banfield for a consist 65 but Holman can and has gone much bigger.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 17:47

Talk about a pod.
Has the spotlight been on the wrong Curnow?
Mr Ed.
95, 148, 86, 126 and ?
82 at half time!

Must be good bloodlines.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:23

    He’s been the BOG for Carlton almost every week. He kept us from absolute smashing a in North and Gold Coast

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:24

    Could be a good pod for some, he's had a few good high scoring years in the past I think.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 18:33

      Was gonna have a look at maybe zerrett next week depending how he went this werk but might have to have a closer look at Mr Ed.
      Though only 10 that qtr WC putting a bit more time into him
      Crippa smashing it.

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:36

        You have Cripps don't ya Trig?…he's having a blinder, could go 160+..happy days!
        Means you'll probably beat me this week…bastard! lol

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 18:39

          Yeah for value him and cogs first picked in my team.

          Which league r we facing off in this week?

            Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:45

            Magnificent 7.

Holty01 · 21/04/2018 at 18:01

Damn. I was so close to putting the c on cripps but thought yeo might go to him. Oh well, come on fyfe

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:10

West Coast player: *Throws ball*
Umpire: *Doesnt call it*
Eddie McGuire: “Umpires…. be fantastic…. day”

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:36

    Can we get a commentator who doesn’t hate both teams

JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 18:24

Have Garlett on the field,most of my opponents have him as E or just on the bench,think that is going to cost me most games this round.

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:28

    Bad luck John, I advised someone before to choose him over Henry before too, feel bad about that now, hope he didn't listen to me lol, didn't expect garlett to drop such a turd.
    3 games out of 4, 60 to 70.
    I guess there's still a quarter to go, hopefully he gets a few goals for ya in the last.

      JohnDJ59 · 21/04/2018 at 18:33

      I usually have Fritsch on field,but he looked doubtful,so really didn't have an option,guess I should have gone Henry,I have already conceded my ten leagues this round after having a closer look.

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:25

    I have him on field

Ja191 · 21/04/2018 at 18:25

simmo getting tagged by hutchings

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:35

    He's not doing a very good job of it then lol

Pman · 21/04/2018 at 18:25

Had the Emergency on Garlett with Barry on field (for loophole purposes) but he is stinking it up with less than 20 points approaching 3rd time so need to start either Holman or Crowther as M8 but can't decide who is the safer bet? Any thoughts on who and why? Cheers..

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 18:39

    Holman. He’s had 3 great games and 1 bad game
    Crowden has had 1 good game, 1 mediocre game and an even worse game

      Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:50

      Makes sense Ty

      Pman · 21/04/2018 at 18:51

      Holman it is. Was a bit wary after his 32 last week but can't fault your logic! Cheers..

        Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:46

        He needs to be in guts making tackles

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 18:26

No late out for Cats
As selected including Danger.

Lindsay Thomas gets a call up.

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 18:29

Danger or Fyfe as C?

    hedski · 21/04/2018 at 18:46

    I've gone Fyfe at home. Was tempted by Danger but a bit worried about that calf. Hope he smashes out a 160 and proves me wrong BB.
    Go cats.

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 18:48

      Yes that calf is a worry. Fyfe averaging 140 at the new stadium is gonna get me over the line with picking him. Let's see if they get into Motlop. Too bad Rocky isn't playing, they were practically playing 1 man down with him on the park. Stop Robbie Gray, Dixon and Hoff and we'll be in with a sniff.

Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:42

Considering Kennedy and Darling have done bugger all, it shows good depth in the Eagles to have such a lead going into the last quarter.
Could be finals contenders this year.

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 18:49

    They are only playing Carlton but I agree, hard to beat at home and could easily make the 8.

Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 18:43

See how he goes this week I reckon Josh, Willie Rioli could be worth a thought too…although he's already gone up in price a bit.

CaptainObvious · 21/04/2018 at 19:15

It didn't take Crippler long to learn how to deal with a tag. Redden you are a disgrace as a tagger

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 19:20

    Is that what he was doing?

Lock n load · 21/04/2018 at 19:21

Guys need to jump on someone early/late, Crowden, Cunico or anyone else worth it?

    TommyC99 · 21/04/2018 at 19:22

    Crowden probs your best bet, but dont expect to make too much cash

CaptainObvious · 21/04/2018 at 19:22

Cripps only in 32% of teams and now averaging 116 at only 535k I reckon that % might change this week

    gator59 · 21/04/2018 at 19:26

    Shhh keep that quiet CO

    DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 19:42

    That's a pretty high ownership tbh I'm saying you think that still makes him a POD though.

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:44

    He did play well. Did Hutchings tag him at all?

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 19:46

      Hutchings didn't tag him from what I saw, he played a bit up forward

Josh · 21/04/2018 at 19:22

Who else had Garlett on field?

    Liam · 21/04/2018 at 19:23

    Me

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:43

    Yeah. Not sure what I was thinking. Was too worried about my Kelly replacement I didn’t even look at the forward line. I’ll be crying when Crowden does wel tonight

    scrotum · 22/04/2018 at 08:51

    yeah and buddy , dissapointing an understatement

Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:28

I would normally be happy with Lycett and Garlet scoring 140 between them.

This is what stuffs up a good season. Having the wrong rookies on field. Happened last year.

Mind you, how good was Lycett. Nice Pod

    CaptainObvious · 21/04/2018 at 19:31

    It's easy to soar like an eagle when your rucking against potatoes

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 19:32

    Seems to be sharing points equally with Nicnat Derek, not bad and you saved yourself some valuable cash.

      DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 19:37

      Onfield rookies is equals more pts than smart trading in the 1st half of the season. That's why 95% of the early leaders aren't there at season end.

      If you could ask every years SC winner they will all say the same thing. Need luck early and brains for trading

      Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:41

      I only need him to get to round 10

      Definitely taking points away from NicNat.

      Mind you, NicNat looked tired today

DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 19:34

Hawkins late out with back spastics so that means Danger will have to step up and kick 5+

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 19:34

    Here's hoping mate!

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 19:39

    Lucky I didn’t decide to get Hawkins this week

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 19:42

    Big out for Geelong

TOPHAWK1 · 21/04/2018 at 19:43

Knew it. Danger started up forward. Not captain this week!

Over to you Fyfe!

BadgerHoney7 · 21/04/2018 at 19:47

Surely I can't start Brayshaw over Banfield and Holman, can I?

Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 19:50

Nic Nat said that nexxt week he will hopefully be getting back to 70-80% game time. Watch out everyone…

    DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 19:56

    Indeed guy is 60% TOG averaging 100 Pft easy 110-115 average if he playing 80%

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 20:23

    No way! He's wanted to increase his game time all season and he still isn't fit enough to last that long.
    But it would help

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 20:43

    NicNat looked tired today

DavidSA · 21/04/2018 at 19:54

Not good signs for Danger owners and I'm sorrrrrrry but those who brought Parfitt in enjoy the cash cause that's all you gonna get

    Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 19:57

    Only because Chris's Scott is a dumb ass!

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 19:58

      For Supercoach it's crap, but for Geelong to win he needs to be down there.

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 20:08

    Bit early to be calling anything regarding Danger yet, first quarter's not even done yet.

    Steeeve · 22/04/2018 at 12:59

    Nek minut

    DangerZone · 22/04/2018 at 13:23

    arrr arrr early crow there David. Do you know how good Danger is? and Parfitt owners will be enjoying heaps of cash and points to come.

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 19:58

Backs against the wall for Geelong, and who should stand up?

Come on down Joel Selwood (not for the first time)

Ahmad rubas · 21/04/2018 at 19:59

Yes danger 5 more please need to outscore 123 that heeney scored

SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:14

Saw who I was up against in the league this week. I thought I'd switch my Captain from Gawn to Danger. Might bite me in the backside, just had to do it for Derek to keep watching the game behind couch. Hehe

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 20:18

    I did the same thing Donk to try and beat Trigga in the Magnificent 7…go Danger! 🙂

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 20:21

    Jeez I'm glad Danger was ok after that headclash, that was brutal!

      SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:25

      That clash looked horrible. Danger must have a head like a rock.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 20:22

    38 at QT

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 20:40

    Yeah mate. Peaking around the sofa. How is Danger playing. Was lucky with the head knock.

    What you think he will get

      SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:45

      Expecting 130, if he gets 3 or 4 goals tonight could go huge to 160+

      SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:59

      Just a lazy 67points at half time Derek. Not something to be worried about, though i hope he kicks 2 more goals in the 2nd half.

        Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:10

        Hopefully the cats have it won and he rests the last quarter

          Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 22:13

          Blasphemy derek!, wash your mouth out with soap lol

            Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:51

            Donkey was right on.

            I think my C might have just sneaked a few better

              SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 00:06

              By putting C on Danger was gonna get the better of you cause you don't have him with his score of 135 puts me over 250points against you. We both have Fyfe so it's not a biggie he scored 151.

              I'm aiming to catch up with you in overall ranking. You're about 147 points ahead me atm.

Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 20:20

@ Those who want to bring in Danger

If he continues this scoring, he will only decrease by 12,800 – to 68800 – and have a BE of 127.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 20:39

    Ffs scotty put him on the ball
    Didnt touch the ball 1st 20 mins of 1st qtr.
    Put him on tbe ball cats start to take control
    It is his best position play your best player in guts!

      Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 20:48

      When he is on the ball he dominates!!!

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 20:20

Sickening head knock there. Dunno how Danger got straight back up.

    Tyruddanaut · 21/04/2018 at 20:22

    You know how when two young kids, grade 1 or 2, bump heads only one of them starts crying usually. I think that's what has happened

      Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 20:24

      Fair go mate, Hartlett was bleeding like a stuck Pig.

Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 20:23

Say goodbye from my team next week Bonner you spud. Terrible minute from him just then.

Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 20:38

MaCrae looking like he will be a SPUD this week…

    McLean had an off night

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 22:53

      Hehehe let us not talk about McLean

Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 20:47

Brought in McLean this week so expect a turd. Sorry community

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:19

    Not going too bad, could still ton up.

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 21:23

      Yeah he still could. It is just frustrating when I look at the other tab and Gray has already tonned up who I was so close to getting instead, the bye just scared me off.

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 21:53

      On 40 halfway through the third, not looking good at all.

SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 20:49

Heads up Wallis doing the tagging on Fyfe.
Banfield on Mcrae

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 20:59

    Not working out too well for them so far, Fyfe is killing it.

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 20:56

Thomas is a flog

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:00

    Always has been mate, and a stager.

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 21:05

      Add sniper to the list of things

        hedski · 21/04/2018 at 21:07

        Dirty dog

          Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:10

          Remember when he took out Rohan's leg a few years ago, on purpose?…put him out for an entire year.

            BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 21:19

            I don't know if people agree, but acts like that not only hurt the player, but also hurts the team. A rotation down, and Thomas is still allowed to play. I don't know the solution, but just doesn't seem fair when acts like that put a player out of the game.

              Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:20

              I think Thomas got suspended for 6 weeks for that, but Rohan had to completely re-start his career.

    JJames · 21/04/2018 at 21:23

    I think everyone gone soft, the game should be changed to non contact to make everyone happy, few years back no one would've even blinked an eye at that one

    JJames · 21/04/2018 at 21:25

    Also before anyone says "sniper" or "dog" he's eyes were on the ball not the man, his natural instinct would be protect the ball and bump the opposition, hardly any head contact either from what i saw

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 21:42

      His eyes were not on the ball the ball was behind him mate

        JJames · 21/04/2018 at 21:51

        Go watch the replay his head was turned right into the balls direction, talking about soft, have a look at the free kick to Dangerfield, Because of a bump a couple seconds after he kicks it no high contact nothing, Sports becoming softer than a game of touch footy

          hedski · 21/04/2018 at 22:20

          All for the hard stuff JJ, but he went past the ball and hit a bloke coming up off he's knees. Weak as p!ss.

            JJames · 21/04/2018 at 22:31

            I agree probably shouldn't have gone for the bump but it wasn't full head contact it was mainly body and I don't think he should miss weeks, what do you reckon hedski? like i stated earlier though, footy is becoming a joke! even the free kick to menzel WTF???

              hedski · 21/04/2018 at 22:53

              He'll be out for two I reckon.
              Yeah Menzel conned the ump with that one, and the Danger down field was pretty soft, but I guess that's the way they judge it nowadays. Go cattas.

          BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 22:42

          Agree Danger free was not there, but you've gotta look after the player who is actually going for the footy. Thomas is a thug.

    Crowboy94 · 21/04/2018 at 21:41

    Mate he fits in well at port. They are all flogs!!

Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 20:59

Duman look like he will be a good downgrade in a few weeks time. Brayshaw also looking like putting up a decent score.

That Brandon Parfitt is one to watch.

Just keeps getting things done.

C'mon Danger 60 points in the last quarter please!

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 21:47

    Even 40 would be nice 🙂

      Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:12

      Rest on bench. Game is over

        Dream on Derek, he'll get 140 🙂

          Derek · 21/04/2018 at 23:10

          It would have sent everyone into meltdown if he ended up worse after the head clash. Got lucky there

            Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 23:11

            Yeah that was a scary moment, glad he has a granite dome.

I'm an honest man

I was wrong about Parfitt

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 22:02

    He's on 81 mate, not exactly a fail, could even ton up 🙂

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:11

    He was expensive

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 22:11

    He's rated very highly at the Cattery

Jeez, the Bulldogs are going crap this year, at least they broke their long drought winning a flag, more than I can say for my sad ass team the Saints.

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 00:30

    getting better mate Acres and Ross stars

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 07:23

    Our rebuilds take a little longer than Hawks and Cats. Lol. About 21 years longer

BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 22:22

Huge win here Hedski. Massive for the playing group.

Such a young group, going into enemy territory on a big occasion and playing the best defensive game I've seen them play for a long time. With so many out, this is a brilliant win.

    hedski · 21/04/2018 at 22:56

    Young blokes are standing up BB.
    Hate saying it but we were more dangerous up fwd without Tommy.

      BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 23:04

      I don't bag Hawkins because he plays a role which is greater than kicking goals. Was a different look up there.

      GHS played very very well. He should stay in the team.

      Stanley on the other hand… useless.

        Derek · 21/04/2018 at 23:07

        Why doesn’t Zac play?

          BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 23:11

          Who knows. I've heard he lacks consistency? Give me a spell, it was round 1 and he was playing Gawn. Stanley has been beaten by Big Boy, Nic Nat and even a second gamer last week was holding his own against him.

          If they reckon Stanley is consistent I'll eat my hat.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 23:14

        Seriously.why cant GHS get a regular gig?
        Goes hard at it, seems to get a fair bit of it, knows the patterns and can sneak fwd and kick a goal??
        Be a walk up start in the bottom teams.

          BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 23:23

          Hard to get into the Geelong engine room.
          Trouble is, he lacks pace. So he can only really play in the middle – which is hard to get into at Geelong. Very good clubman though. If he can't stay in the side, I think he will find a new home at seasons end.

allen · 21/04/2018 at 22:29

danger is a beast of a player to watch, but must say from watching games this year he gets a lot of preferential umpiring.. goes hard at it and deserves some frees but I think its a bit ridiculous..
13 frees for, 2 against this year..

    Handley · 21/04/2018 at 22:34

    Rubbish. He plays the ball. If there were more Dangers AFL would be better for it.
    Save your dollars and get him in because you are obviously missing out.

      Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 22:51

      Those who don't have him haven't missed out on much this year tbh

      allen · 21/04/2018 at 23:00

      not really talking about whether or not he is in my team or not, clearly in the top 5 best players in the afl and is good for the game. but from watching him play, umpires award him free kicks that they don't award to other players, and are more lenient in his wrong doings in comparison to when others make the same error..

        Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 23:04

        If that is the case then Allen, get him in!…better to have him than not have him, if the Umpires are showing favouritism towards him right?

    Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:55

    I must say, he does go in hard at the ball. Either gets it, forces it out of gets a free

Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 22:32

mcCLEAN up your disposal efficency… 110 DT and only 70 SC

    Holty01 · 22/04/2018 at 13:50

    Probably because i bought him in this week. Hows my luck

      Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 15:04

      Same

Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 22:36

Bonner's gotta go next week, turned out to be a trap…"it's a trap!!"…lol, gonna have to go one up and one down to be progressing this week.
If only the little shit didn't drop a 119..bloody fool's gold punk.

    Defying_Madness · 21/04/2018 at 22:42

    Yeah I will probably go Holman down Bonner up to Yeo

Tommo · 21/04/2018 at 22:42

Danger VC
I’m gonna take his score but Dusty could go big

Connor · 21/04/2018 at 22:51

Man I feel completely ripped off!
T. Mclean – 109DT = 72SC
M. Walters – 5 goals, only 100SC
(and I chose Parker over Cripps…)

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 22:57

    Remember Dt and AFL Fantasy awards points for kicks regardless of if they're out on the full or a clanger, so the SC score reflects his true performance, consequences for actions. ..which the others don't have.

    BrownlowBoy · 21/04/2018 at 23:03

    McLean got junk time touches. Mean nothing so worth less points.

DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 21/04/2018 at 22:56

Hey what price will Danger be for this week and his new BE?

Derek · 21/04/2018 at 22:58

My plan was to get Danger in two weeks. But I might be counting all my coins and checking behind the sofa, where I have to watch the Geelong games from, for any loose change to see if I can afford him.

What will Dangerfields BE be next week and his price? What will T Kelly’s price be?

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 23:02

    You probably already know Derek, you're the stats master 🙂

      Derek · 21/04/2018 at 23:04

      It’s late, I’ll work it out in the morning.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 23:09

        Will drop about $35k

        JugHead · 21/04/2018 at 23:10

        I'm looking closely at Selwood. Could be below 550k next week.

    hedski · 21/04/2018 at 23:06

    See you bought in Zerrett Derek, ballsy but could be a great move (playing you this week).
    Not sure on Dangers BE yet, plenty more cash to come from Kelly.

      Derek · 21/04/2018 at 23:22

      He was in my team a lot pre season.

      He seemed to be running and contesting really well last week, and his round 13 bye sealed it. And his price was nice.

      I have over $300k. Just seems like I’m leaving points in the bank, especially when I go and put Garlet in the field.

      I was $8k short of going Venables to RGray with my second trade. Probably should have. Oh well.

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 12:02

    Kelly still a bit of coin to make and Danger might still drop a couple of dollars. Another week watching footy without Danger in my team

    The Ranger · 22/04/2018 at 12:19

    Danger looked close to his best last night eh Derek?
    First time I've seen him covering the ground like that this season.

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 15:11

      I had one eye closed most of the game

AuroraBorealis?! · 21/04/2018 at 22:59

Take fyfes score or roll the dice on Zerrett?

    Russty_ · 21/04/2018 at 23:01

    Seriously?….hmmm let me think, 151 or a potential 60 from Merrett?…come on mate, you know better than that 🙂

      Finnius · 21/04/2018 at 23:03

      I think it was a joke Russty

just as well there is rookies that are to be dealt with before him

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/04/2018 at 23:04

Yeah would be a nice touch
Got that VC on Fyfes neck but no loop.

JugHead · 21/04/2018 at 23:18

Trading question. Like a lot of others, I'll be painting the fence very soon. I have English on my ruck bench. Does it make any sense to bring a cheap (non playing) ruck/fwd dpp onto my fwd bench to use as a swing with English so I can use him on both lines? Or am I just asking for the SC gods to laugh at me and do something bad to English?

    The Ranger · 21/04/2018 at 23:50

    Got him Too Jug and I'm gonna keep him til after the byes at least

    Goat · 22/04/2018 at 01:59

    Thinking of the same thing. Unique position. Cover is good.

    Mr Pink · 22/04/2018 at 08:41

    Just did that with Max Lynch from the Pies… Collingwood lots of late games until R18… worked out well with Fyfe's VC score this round 🙂 Hopefully English stays on the park and provides ruck cover until late in the season

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:01

    Good question. If you started the season that way you nailed it. Having ruck cover is very important, but this year we didn’t have a Nank or Ryder. I didn’t think English would play many games, but he has turned out pretty good.

    If you have English at R3 with no Ruc/Fwd swing, I think he just stays there. To use a trade on a DPP just to get English into your forward line is a waste. He is scoring similar to the forward rookies, so not a great advantage there.

    Keep him as ruck cover, that will be valuable.

    At some stage you might need the cash, maybe for one of your last upgrades.

    Well done for starting him. But I would just leave him at R3

      Phil · 22/04/2018 at 11:17

      Derek I may be wrong but I think he is contemplating bringing in a R/F rook (ie Hayes) to swing English FWD, right?
      So English could still back-up the ruckman (from the FWD line) but you can benefit in the short-term by putting him F6 as he is easily out scoring Fritz, Garlett etc.
      I think it's a great move. Only downside I see is that English is becoming an excellent cash cow, so if you capitalise on his capital gained and trade him out, you are stuck with Hayes R/F at R3 with nobody to swing with (not really any different to having Olango r3 just cost a little more.
      Of course, you could keep English all year at F7 and have him backing up 2 lines.

        Browncow · 22/04/2018 at 12:24

        I almost traded in Flynn from GWS yesterday for the same reason but last minute thought I might cash out English at some stage. If you plan to take the money in a few weeks then like Derek says may as well leave him at R3. If the plan is to keep as permanent F7/R3 then great move (or at least thru the byes). Only other issue is some experienced players sitting behind him and while he is solid around the ground is getting smashed in the hit outs.

        Derek · 22/04/2018 at 15:10

        I don’t think he will outscore Fritsch by enough to justify a trade. Maybe 10pts a week? Fritsch should be upgraded in next 4 weeks, so maybe 40 points…. not worth it

          JugHead · 22/04/2018 at 17:13

          All good food for thought. Thinking I might just leave English R3 for now and trade him out late in the season if I need the cash to get my last premo on another line

            Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:17

            Good to have cover Jughead, hopefully you have another perma-loophole there somewhere, like you said, use him later in the year to upgrade another if you have to but having cover is always good too.

SC_Donkey · 21/04/2018 at 23:39

Bonner is about max, ready for culling down to Mirra or Guelfi. Then need to bring Hurley or Walters in this week. So far doing ok this week 1612/14 Danger(C) still have Titch, Oliver, Gawn, Hibbo, Smith, Taylor, Murray and Holman to play. Hoping to get 2300+

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 09:50

    Yep. Bonner is getting culled this week. Most likely replacement will be Mirra. Then I may have just enough cash to go and punt Brayshaw for Clayton Oliver. He has a break even of 150, and should get him for sub $600K. BANG BANG! Will then have 26 trades left and have Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Parker 🙁 , Zerrett, and Oliver in my midfield. Only need two more uber premiums and am targeting Dusty next, and maybe a Josh Kelly or Matty Crouch mid season. Depending how they recover from their injuries.

    Travelling much better too with 1355 with 10 to play. Projected around 2300.

    Cheers doncs!

      SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 11:17

      That's a solid mid TH, after trading out Kelly two weeks ago my mid is Danger, Titch, Oliver, Fyfe and Cripps. But have included Simmo and NicNat at other area, looking to strengthen my back and fwd for now, happy to play my Rookies TKelly, Holman and Finlayson in the guts at the time being until i bring in Dusty, Zerrett, maybe Cogs he looks like he's not slowing down.

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:03

    You are killing it Donkey. Have a few make or break players yet to play, but you could go big this week

      SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 11:11

      Hopefully, 250+ points ahead of you might be enough to beat you this week. Hope Taylor, Hibbo and Holman do well against your Dusty, Zerrett, Tracca and Fritsch.

The Ranger · 21/04/2018 at 23:51

Finally got a Captains choice right…nice one Nathan.

The Ranger · 21/04/2018 at 23:53

Take Banfields 67 or put Holman on field?

    Cam · 22/04/2018 at 00:15

    Take the 67, worst case holman gets 30 points more, but that's providing he has a very good game.

    And who knows what role he will be given, if there's a chance it's the same as last week then should be an easy decision

    JugHead · 22/04/2018 at 00:24

    Line ball I reckon. But leaning towards Holman for three reasons.
    1. If you take out last weeks 32pts against better opposition, Holman has been scoring comfortably above 67.
    2. This weeks opposition is Brisbane.
    3. He is 22yo, He should have a bit more petrol in the tank than a raw 18yo rookie with only one preason under their belt.

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:04

    Take 67. It’s only 3 away from 70, you would take 70 😉

DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 22/04/2018 at 04:45

What are people doing next week, Bonner down to Mirra and a disappointing rookie to Z.Merrett or Bonner down to Mirra and putting the cash aside to get The Dangerman?

    BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 10:04

    You should probably have a plan to get Danger in pretty soon.

    Tibor · 22/04/2018 at 10:16

    Bonner to Mirra and cash for Danger as you said. Will gat Danger this week too probably for JOM but maybe Whitfield who has dropped off a bit

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:08

    Mirra needs to play first.

    The Hawks have quite a few

    Burton back this week, will see if he affects Mirra.

    Burgoyne will be back soon, Whitecross, Langford, Shoenmaker, All looking for a game.

    Talk about a loooong round.

    gator59 · 22/04/2018 at 10:20

    We both had C on Fyfe and thought I would shrug off Russty by putting the C on Danger and we must've changed at the same time a couple of minutes before the game to Danger haha … I should've stayed with Fyfe ..Oh well it's going to be a good tussle either way

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 12:10

    Hey guys, I think Gator's got it in the bag, only 3 unique players left to play and Gats is 105 ahead, I'm going crap in that league too..0-3 lol, all a bit of fun ay, good to play in Leagues with mates and no cop out quitters 🙂

      NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 15:16

      Well said Russty Kudos to you that's what it's about FUN and bragging rights. Be great if TREV comes back That was one hell of a site and getting better just needed help big job Yes I think Gat might get up cheers mate

        Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 15:23

        Cheers Neil, worst thing is I'm playing him in 3 different leagues lol, He has Mirra, Fritch and Howe and I have Chistensen, Hogan and Nank..so it might be close 🙂

          NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 15:43

          you will need 300 to beat gator THINK the champ's got you mate

            I'd better get 350 then mate just to make sure haha

Unbelievable

TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 10:09

Good morning community!

After last week's apocalyptic round, things are turning around nicely this week. (Touch wood) Sitting on 1355 with 10 to play with proj of 2300 odd. Fyfe saved by bacon big time last night after that Parker VC horror show on Friday night.

As we are now moving into round 6, the time for serious trading will start. (28 trades)

I am planning a play to snare Clayton Oliver this week.

He has a BE 150 and should level out in price. (Sub $600 hopefully)

It is by no means a done deal, but if I get lucky I might pull it off. Here is the plan-

I have $134K in the warchest.

Bonner OUT- and Mirra IN. Profit: $218K. New warchest: $352K

A Brayshaw- OUT at $220K, then Oliver IN at $572K. As such, for this to come off, Oliver's price needs to drop by $29K as his current price sits at $601K.

A question for the community, what score must Oliver be held to on Tuesday for him to drop to $572K? 100SC- 110SC? Be great if someone could give me that exact number. Anyone else plotting this manoevre this week?

Cheers

    gator59 · 22/04/2018 at 10:24

    Sounds like a good plan Toppa … Get him in no matter what…. I started with the red nuts and he's looking good

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 10:31

      Thanks Gator. I would then have Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Zerrett, and Parker as my midfield premos. Only need Dusty then to complete the midfield. Parker may need to be looked at if he continues his putrid form. What would Oliver need to score to drop $29K in value so I can grab him. Around 110?

    Tyruddanaut · 22/04/2018 at 10:42

    Too expensive! You can't afford that. By the end of last season, I had to bring in 400k players in all lines due to bringing in 3 players over 560k.
    In addition, he's not going to drop that much, you'll be5-6k off

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 10:55

      Thanks mate. So are you saying that Oliver is out of reach because I did not start with him? I can't see him dropping below $560K at any stage this season. He is a crucial must have IMO. The only other bloke I need to complete my midfield is Dusty. So that would mean 2 x 560K plus purchases this season. I think that is do able as long as you have the key rooks and plenty of trades. I agree with you that it is likely Oliver wont quite drop to $572K to allow me to pull it off, but let's see what happens. Cheers

        Tibor · 22/04/2018 at 13:43

        Don't be too discouraged it's a decent plan. I'm planning the same move because Bonner now has to go and Mirra is the best and most obvious choice. It allows me to grab Danger for JOM, Whitfield or maybe even Tim Kelly and then I have Danger Dusty Titch and Fyfe.

        Fair bit of chat that Mirra won't last but if it comes to that I could look elsewhere or get him anyway and field Naughton. One more game for Mirra would be perfect….

          Derek · 22/04/2018 at 15:07

          JOM has 2 good price rises left. And Danger will come down. Could be $100k saving

            Tibor · 22/04/2018 at 16:48

            you've got a lot more faith in JOM than I do. I expect him to break sooner rather than later but I couldn't be happier with the run I've had from him. Watched Danger last night and he was in a class of his own. The umpires absolutely adore him and he does not miss out on any frees either which converts to big points. Took the gamble on a mid price high risk JOM so if he and a cheap rookie lead me into Danger then that's perfect. If the opportunity is there I'll be doing it while I can because apart from money forced injury trades will come along soon enough

        NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 15:07

        what he Is saying Toppa is by bringing in those expensive premiums your last couple will be 400 k MOTLOPS cause you will be cash strapped. He is quite correct too. I would look out now for one possibly two of the best 400k available players . PARFITT LIDS FISHER Tom McDONALD .Not saying I would have any Cheers toppa

    Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:16

    Can’t see it happening mate.

    First, I’d worry about Mirra playing many games, but if he is named next week I would get him.

    Second, you are needing Oliver to go sub 85 this week.

    Next week he drops the 75 out of his score, so he will have a low BE next week.

      dontblushbaby · 22/04/2018 at 11:47

      Silk due back next week ,might take Mirra's spot ?

        Derek · 22/04/2018 at 11:50

        Burton might play forward this week. Silk back next week, will allow Burton to go back and maybe push Mirra out

      NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 15:10

      hI Derek do you have all the big uber names or will you miss out particularly pre byes.. I am resigned to missing DUSTY UNLESS he has a few poor games.cheers

StevoRivo · 22/04/2018 at 10:41

Fyfe Captain, Cripps & Danger – at last some redemption after putting the C on Titch last week. Decent scores from Gawn, Dusty & Titch will be a nice bonus!

Any news on Fritsch yet?

    David C · 22/04/2018 at 12:51

    I think the important info is the Casey outs which are Balic, Hunt and Stretch. I expect those 3 to be in's for Melbourne. Balic you'd think would replace Fritsch.

      CheekyNandos7 · 22/04/2018 at 13:35

      One one hand I'm hoping for a Fritsch out so I can loophole Fyfe but on the other hand I dont want to lose cash gen 🙁

KSinny · 22/04/2018 at 11:10

Going pretty well this week, on 1401/12 C with 10 to go including Titch, Dusty, Gawn, Zerett, Sicily, Tracca, Nank, Smith, Murray and Holeman. Hoping for 2300-2400.

Baggy Pants · 22/04/2018 at 11:19

When will we know whether Fritsch is playing today?

    dontblushbaby · 22/04/2018 at 12:09

    Tuesday and Wednesday Teams will be announced tomorrow

      dontblushbaby · 22/04/2018 at 12:13

      For what its worth he is named to play today at 2.00pm v Tigers @ Punt Rd

        Dale · 22/04/2018 at 12:25

        Doesn’t mean a whole lot unfortunately blush. He can be withdrawn anytime before Casey’s bounce. We won’t really know till 1.30 probably

          Baggy Pants · 22/04/2018 at 12:33

          Can you post if you find he is playing today would be much appreciated.

            Dale · 22/04/2018 at 13:54

            Fritsch Not playin for Casey. Will be named for Melbourne

              Nostradumarse · 22/04/2018 at 14:09

              Thanks Dale

Marty · 22/04/2018 at 13:36

Also concerned with Fritsch. Changed the vc from Fyfe to Gray to do something different but both good results. Anyone else concerned they are not generating enough $$$$ from rookies? I have Murphy, ZGL not playing, Olango doing his job but no cash and Garlett putting some spud scores. Anyone else have the same concerns?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 14:54

    Hi Marty, yeah I'm a bit concerned about all my non playing rookies making me no money, I initially put Keefe and O'connor in for the swing flexibility but it doesn't look like they're getting a game anytime soon, might be time to move them on, I also still have Ryan, Brayshaw and Olango, might just leave Brayshaw there and hope he improves, 62 yesterday not too bad as a backup.
    Ryan has to go but I wanted another look at Guelfi first.

Marty · 22/04/2018 at 13:37

JJK should be a good trade-in a few weeks 🙂

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 13:51

Fritsch not playing for Casey…

    Finnius · 22/04/2018 at 13:55

    grrrrrrrr. Means I can't take Fyfe fml.

      Marty · 22/04/2018 at 14:30

      Same. Have to rely on Gawn now. Gulp!

    hedski · 22/04/2018 at 15:04

    Hopefully he makes the team and not an emergency, I really don't want Garletts 21 to come off the bench.

Nostradumarse · 22/04/2018 at 14:02

I had another footy related premonition last night but I promised not to tell. But consider this 'what if'

What if at the 30-seconds mark of the first qrtr Jacobs is accidentally kneed in the head 3 times (once by each hawks mid) whilst being accidentally held by McEvoy and Jacobs ends up with an accidental concussion? Do North have a backup Jacobs?

    Dale · 22/04/2018 at 14:08

    If that happens watch Mitchell go 150+.
    But it won’t and while jocobs is taggin Tom he will be lucky to score 110

    JugHead · 22/04/2018 at 14:12

    Sounds a bit like like my premonition of Danger, Gaz and Selwood all coming from different directions and colliding heads complete with coconut sound effect. Phew. Lucky they don't all come true. If Norf have a backup Jacobs, they are hiding him pretty well.

    Pranav Santhosh · 22/04/2018 at 14:53

    this would be my worst nightmare as a non titch owner relying on jacobs to keep him under 100 so i can pick him up at a reduced price in round 8

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 14:57

    Luckily for hawks Thomas isn't there

    scrotum · 22/04/2018 at 15:04

    jump on the coaching panel

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 17:17

    I had a premonition i booted JOM's arse to Danger and smiled for hours.

dognino · 22/04/2018 at 14:05

Should I take Brayshaw 62 and bench Holman so I can do the captain loophole and take dangers 135, or keep Holman on ground and back dusty as C. I stuffed up and kept the E on Brayshaw on the bench, Holman is my only option to bench for the loophole

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 14:23

    I'd probably take the 62 and the 270, Dusty historically doesn't score that well against the Dees but he could do the opposite, each year is a new year, not sure what Holman will dish up this week either after his turd last week.

      INPieman · 22/04/2018 at 15:11

      Not as bad as Garlett's turd yesterday. It's painful looking at a 21 onfield. And he wasn't injured

        Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 15:15

        I feel for you mate..hoping I don't have any midfield outs, cause I have Garlett's E there if I do.

        dognino · 22/04/2018 at 17:06

        I copped Garletts turd on field. Still looking at 2200, but league win is gonna be close

JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 14:23

Two bad weekends in a row for me, looking at a wipeout as far as my leagues go.On the positive side, Fyfe came through for me as Captain, Cogs had another good game, bringing in Heeney worked a treat, Laird was his usual self, Doedee & Finlayson kept up their good work in the backline. What killed me was having Garlett on the field for the first time this year and my opponents having him on the bench and just about all my opponents having Cripps & Simpson. Not much I can do with my team this week apart from getting Danger in, which was the plan all along, but was thinking last week that I might stretch that out to round seven, but having Danger instead of a rookie on the park should help going forward.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 14:36

    Hi John, yeah definitely mate, it's danger time!..having Garlett on field this week is just unfortunate cause he was travelling ok up until that spud performance. Spare a thought for anyone who had Garlett, Savage, Buddy and Greene all on this week ..this can be a cruel game.

      JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 14:58

      Hi Russty,yes if you had all of those four on the ground you wouldn't be feeling all that great, wish I had been playing one of them,I would be looking at one win at least. Just annoyed with myself that I didn't just keep Fritsch on the field, since it looks like he might be playing now.

    NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 14:55

    It can be cruel Look at DEREK last year was way way back and finished in novice territory. Have a look at him this year he is flying .Bad C choices can cruel you Lids might be a left field pick then we can get all the top players quickly

      JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 16:25

      Hey Neil,at the moment I think I will be doing well just to make the top 10,000 this year and make a few finals, my really good year of last year seems a long time ago. At least I got the Captain pick right this time, Fyfe is life, not that it saved me though, didn't have any really bad scores apart from Garlett, just that my opponents had better ones.

DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 14:43

Sicily Captain

    KSinny · 22/04/2018 at 14:44

    Same here

      Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 15:26

      Bit hard to do that when you've already got it on Fyfe mate lol

    scrotum · 22/04/2018 at 15:05

    sciss, sciss, sarrrrr SILLY

    INPieman · 22/04/2018 at 15:06

    Ballsy. I like it

    Finnius · 22/04/2018 at 17:58

    great call David.

Locked and Loaded · 22/04/2018 at 14:55

Missed Fyfe cos I live in the states and fell asleep hahaha ah well I’m tempted to C Titch I can’t see him going sub 100 2 weeks in a row didn’t do it once last year and will be out to bounce back !
Mistake or go with the gut???
Thought

    KSinny · 22/04/2018 at 15:03

    Back Titch in!

    INPieman · 22/04/2018 at 15:04

    The Jacobs tag is the problem with that

JEL · 22/04/2018 at 15:07

Early thoughts for next week's trades :
Bonner & Waterman – OUT
Mirra & Gray – IN

Need to see how this round finishes and who is named next week..

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 17:58

    Not convinced on Mirra Mirra on the Wall. Prefer Guelfi if you can make it happen. Waterman has still got cash to make.

SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 15:28

Gonna be tough watching Titch trying to shake off Jacobs today. Though Jacobs tends to peel off towards the end of 3rd Qtr, hope Titch takes advantage with that and on 4th Qtr.

    Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 15:53

    I put the captain on Titch

      SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 16:21

      That was ballsy DM. Jacobs is the best tagger in the comp this season, everyone should avoid putting C on any Gun player this year.

        Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 16:22

        I know that but my team is screwed anyway. Needed to hope he would do well

        Moosehead · 22/04/2018 at 16:38

        Been th3 best the last three years.

          SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 16:49

          He has been good in the last couple of years, this year he is in another level.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 16:40

    Going to be hard for Titch to tonne up from here given the Hawks are getting belted as well. I didnt have the fortitude to put the C on Titch with Jacobs on him. Just took the punt with Fyfe. He did the business.

    Titch gave Goldy a clip around the ear in the second quarter. Looked high. Let's hope he doesn't miss a week for that. That would be the last thing we need.

      SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 16:57

      I think he will, like I said Jacobs peels of against his player when the damage has been done. Will give Titch some Junk time and will ton up.

TommyC99 · 22/04/2018 at 15:30

Fritsch didn’t play VFL, looks like I’m not taking Fyfes score. Over to you Maxy Gawn

    Keenbutclueless · 22/04/2018 at 15:38

    Same. Can’t believe with all the deadwood sitting on the pine that I can’t loophole.

Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 15:46

Hawthorn making North Melbourne look good.

    BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 15:54

    North Melbourne are actually dangerous when they are on. Waite and Brown would be a nightmare to match up on. A lot of underrated players at North, Cunnington, Brown, Waite, Tarrant and some of Goldstein's ruck work has been first class.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 15:55

    Yeah jeez that was a real goal blitz..Ben Brown is a gun, he hardly ever misses. I reckon the Hawks will claw their way back into it.

      Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 16:25

      We are playing like shit and will lose by 60+

        Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 16:32

        Like I said making NM look good.

          Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 16:42

          Yeah I left at half time, couldn't pay me to watch that performance

Tyruddanaut · 22/04/2018 at 16:01

Mirras out and so are my plans

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 16:09

    Mirra is out there. Wont be surprised if he is playing cracked ribs though. Let's hope he is OK.

TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 16:02

Zurhaar you dog. Throwing Mirra into the fence like that. You deserve 2-3 weeks for that. Mirra could have busted ribs after that. Disgraceful.

    Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 16:08

    That's North Melbourne for you. Always been dirty buggers

      Scragga · 22/04/2018 at 16:37

      Yeh. Look at Lindsay Thomas yesterday.

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 17:19

    I think he broke the Mirra. Maybe 7 years bad luck?

DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 16:24

Bad day to pick a hawk C

Who was it saying Thompson a POD? He is proving it

    Finnius · 22/04/2018 at 16:26

    maybe not if they are a defender…

      DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 16:32

      50 points north 8-1 hawks half time

    JJames · 22/04/2018 at 16:43

    That was me but but sc wow I think it was said cringe so glad he's showing up!

      DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 16:45

      Nice JJ

        JJames · 22/04/2018 at 17:21

        let's just hope we didn't jynx him…

Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 16:35

The umpiring is an absolute joke. #freekickroos

    Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 16:43

    Umpiring is a complete disgrace but the way we were playing does not help. North deserve the lead

SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 16:42

As much as I hate Jacobs tagging Titch SCwise, loving it at the same time. I hope my Mighty Roos don't slack off in the 2nd half and finish this game with Authority.

    SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 17:00

    Carnage for my Rooboys. NO!
    Surely that was an illegal bump, he choosed to bump than tactle. Hope Hihgins recovers well

      Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 17:04

      If Burton gets rubbed out the MRP is a joke

      Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 17:27

      If he gets suspended for that I give up on footy!!

        Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:41

        There was no malice or elbows in it, he basically turned his back on him and braced for impact, I don't think Burton will be in trouble for that.

          SC_Donkey · 23/04/2018 at 08:39

          Agree with no malice, but disagree he wont be in trouble for that. He choosed to bump instead going for a tackle which Higgins kinda had his back on him. Cause of that split decision he made he bumped Higgins slightly in front than shoulder to shoulder, may get 1 week at least. But knowing the MRPs we are never certain with their bumping rules these days.

    SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 17:38

    What a turning point! Soon 2 players goes down. The runs stopped.

Holty01 · 22/04/2018 at 16:46

I was thinking i was finally going to have a great week. 1429 with Fyfe C and 10 to play. Titch and Roughie playing now. Cant blame Titch as it seems he is the only Hawk trying out there and that is with the Jacobs tag. Bloody Roughie though, you are the captain so you better start inspiring a very poor Hawks side after half time.

NEIL DemonsDelight · 22/04/2018 at 17:10

wow nth Melbourne lose 2 players in 5 seconds Roos deserve a win here

DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 17:12

O'Dear ah

Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:14

Zorko's going well again, 8 points at quarter time, don't think I'll be targeting him even if he drops into the 400's

Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:20

Hawks can still win this…they just need to knock a few more blokes out lol

Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 17:20

Please Hawthorn

    Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 17:25

    Bloody umpires are useless

      Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 17:26

      Been up NM ass all afternoon

    Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 17:30

    That was the premiership quarter. Were still in it

      Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 18:22

      I was wrong. Cant beat the umpires

        Buster · 22/04/2018 at 18:27

        Hawthorn supporters you have just become too accustomed to a nice ride on the umpires, Benny Brown had the arms chopped all day. I assure you nobody feels too sorry if Hawthorn have a bad day with the umps have a tea spoon of harden up

          Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 18:30

          Hawks have been hard done by the umps for a few years now

          Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 18:43

          The whole freekick hawthorn crap wasnt anything like what people made it to be. Go back and look at the stats and hawks never got masses of frees like people seem to think.

          Todays game was enormously skewed in the roos favour. Being at the game it was an absolute disgrace. Most of the frees wernt there at all and almost every 50/50 went the roos way. Look what happened in the 3rd qurter when the umps stepped back a bit

            NoLanguage · 22/04/2018 at 20:28

            Haha cry me a river mate the Hawks get looked after every week. Better team won, plain and simple

              Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 20:43

              The better team did win but come on saying the hawks get looked after..

Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:26

Looks like T-Mitch isn't untagable after all, feel for the Coaches who took the risk with the C on him this week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 17:32

    There was no way I was going to captain Titch with Jacobs going to him. Even if he is good at breaking tags, it was likely to slow him down. But bad luck for coaches who thought differently I suppose.

      Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:37

      Yeah same here Hawk, no way I was going to pick him knowing Jacobs was going to him, I guess it was probably a hail mary shot for coaches whose teams weren't doing well in their leagues and thought they could turn it around.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 17:54

      After seeing how much the tag effected Titch last week, i didn't even consider giving him the C against the best tagger in the comp.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 17:55

    After last week against the Dees and what Jacobs did to Oliver a few weeks back, there was no way anyone should have had the C on Titch. Having said that, going with Fyfe&Titch so far as either my VC or C has worked alright except last week, when they both had a down day.Just shows that people will have to study the VC&C a bit more, who & where are they playing, what is their history against that team and so on.

      Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 18:05

      Saying that people need to study is a bad call. I captained Titch knowing full well that Jacobs is the best tagger and I know what he did to Oliver.

        JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 18:23

        So you put the C on Titch knowing full well that he might not go all that well, that doesn't make sense, did you even think of Fyfe at home against the Dogs ? Who was your VC ?

          Defying_Madness · 22/04/2018 at 18:31

          I knew nobody else would put the captain on Titch so I was hoping for a pod to save my team. As as mentioned above a hail mary

        paul · 22/04/2018 at 22:39

        hah that's why you are called Madness

    JEL · 22/04/2018 at 18:33

    It looks like one of the unwritten rules for this year is don't put the C on a player who's getting tagged by Jacobs.

    Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 18:39

    Lots of people saying he will be suspended for a week

      Russty_ · 24/04/2018 at 00:07

      Nah he beat the rap Crowboy.

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 17:41

As much as Sicily is a gigantic flog, he's a handy little player isnt he?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:43

    He's doing ok, hope he keeps his temper in check, kinda glad I didn't trade him to Curnow now 🙂

    DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 17:58

    I'm happy he has smashed bonnets score, brought him this week. Even Gray outscoring that annoying Fisher ton. Double upgrade worked out very well

      DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 17:59

      Bonner*

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 18:00

    Played awesome today. Love the fact he is taking the kick-ins too.

    Tibor · 22/04/2018 at 18:30

    Never any question on his ability but when is the next flog tantrum

      AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 18:31

      Exactly Tibor, hopefully those group therapy sessions have started working for him.

        Tibor · 22/04/2018 at 20:54

        depends who they have in the group, I'd keep the coach out of the way he was much the same as a player

SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 17:56

You bloody beauty!!! Awesome win.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 17:58

    Good win Donk, they never recovered from North's blitzing first quarter.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:23

    Well done Doncs. Licking my wounds …….Very poor today, but North have done well. Not happy with that Zurhaar though, chucking my target rook Mirra into the fence!

      SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 18:53

      Had me worried in the 3rd term TH, really thought we ran out of legs. Yeah wasn't happy with the incident involving Mirra hopefully he'll be ok for next week, I also have an eye on Guelfi

DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 17:56

Holman never in doubt! Man rooks this year are talented Kelly, Doedee he hoo, Fin Soup and Murray River

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:21

    Started with all 5. That is one big positive for my side. Enabled me to save a lot of trades early. Loving watching them fatten into juicy lambs to turn into fallen premos.

      DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 18:33

      Yeah it's exciting times and we all have no excuses on have at least 18/22 premiums in the top 30 SC

      Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 18:39

      I started the big 5 rooks and its about the only good decision iv made all year. My midfield and forward lines are in shambles. Neale zorko zerrett greene…even kreuzer was a shocking pick and now titch is apudding it.

      I tell a lie i started sicily whos gonna be a top 6 defender. My only other good pick

      Iamme · 22/04/2018 at 19:42

      I also started with all 5, only problem I also have Bont, Kreuzer, J.Kelly and Billings and really struggling as a result.

    SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 18:48

    Holman covering Titch lost points, need Taylor to lift to stay on track with my score projection for this week.

BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 18:01

I didn't want to do well at footy tipping anyway 😕

    hedski · 22/04/2018 at 18:09

    I did, I'm not…..

    Liam · 22/04/2018 at 18:19

    I tipped all the underdogs this week, have gone alright so far.

Marty · 22/04/2018 at 18:03

Looking like Witheren is a must have in defence. He was in and out of my side all pre-season. Ah well you win some or you go a Mills.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 18:11

    Wouldn't say a must have Marty, not yet at least. He's a good player though

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 18:21

So did north play really well or did hawthorn play really badly? I watched the game but im having trouble figuring it out, maybe a bit of both?

    Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 18:38

    Hawthorn played like crap in the first half….

    BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 18:43

    North didn't allow Hawthorn to play well in the first half. Both teams had their periods of dominance.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 18:45

    Hawks got blown out of the water in the first quarter with Brown, Waite and Ziebell kicking Goals, they found it hard to recover from that.
    Titch getting shut down didn't help either and O'Meara wasn't sighted much.

    SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 18:45

    A bit of both for me, having 2 players down North lost their runs early in the 3rd . Pick it back up in the 4th.

Tommo · 22/04/2018 at 18:29

How many trades does everyone have left?
I have 27 and am going to blow two this week at this stage
Is this about average or a couple more than most?

    DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 18:32

    Would say you have 1-2 more trades than average. Lots of injuries and spud premiums so far.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 22/04/2018 at 18:46

    I've got 27 as well Tommo, used one for Matt Crouch and two for upgrading Lobb.

    Kyle · 22/04/2018 at 18:48

    i have 28 but still have a lot of issues with my side. Wanted to go kreuzer to grundy this week but didnt have the coin. A mirra downgrade and kreuz upgrade is on the table this week

    JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 19:32

    I have 24,so used 6 so far, 2 on injures, 2 on corrections and 2 on a upgrade&downgrade.

TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:41

Dayne Zorko is going to be placed on the "reduced to clear" rack after this week. His price will have a 4 in front of it and heading south fast. What a spud.

    Nuggety · 22/04/2018 at 18:44

    Just luck that I took Kelly and Crouch ahead of him to start the year. Yes it's cost me trades but the fact Zorko keeps playing makes him an absolute cruel bastard…

      DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 18:57

      Billings 509k 83.2
      JPK 564k 78.0 pts
      Zorko 608k 77.8 (looking like a 50 pt dud game today)
      Hanners 535k 72.5 pts
      Beams 557k 70.3 (looking like another 70 pt dud game today)
      Rockliff 529k 43.8

        Steeeve · 22/04/2018 at 19:29

        I avoided them all, thank Jock

    BrownlowBoy · 22/04/2018 at 18:50

    Black list this year @LekDog?

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 18:53

    Might have to be a buy one, get one Midget free deal.

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:59

      And now he is injured…..Elbow issue. Zorko "the magnicient" turns into Zorko "the insignificant". Coaches who have him must be suicidal.

        DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 19:02

        Lol That title TopHawk

DavidSA · 22/04/2018 at 18:42

Holman 88 nearing the end of the 3rd
some were crazy enough to trade him lol

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:48

    Absolutely Batsh-it crazy alright when he went in with a measly BE of 25. He is about to go big and skyrocket in price. Got him on the field and grinning like a cheshire cat.

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 20:01

      What happened last quarter

        Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 20:56

        Nothing..he didn't get near it..bit of a bummer, thought he would've tonned up for sure.

Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 18:47

This goes out to the 3761 people that traded Holman out this week.
😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 18:55

    Hehehehehe. Dont you just love it. LOL

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 19:01

    Probably the same dudes who traded Fyfe out lol

    JohnDJ59 · 22/04/2018 at 19:02

    I did the next worse and put him on the bench with the E on him.

    CaptainObvious · 22/04/2018 at 19:28

    Traded him for Fyffe I feeel so horrible it will probably ruin my season. pfft

      Ahmad rubas · 22/04/2018 at 19:31

      Surely you could of found someone else to trade?

      Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 19:38

      The fact you had to trade for Fyfe is hilarious. Half the SC community started him. Plus like Ahmad said surely you could of traded someone else..

        Ahmad rubas · 22/04/2018 at 19:56

        I can understand not starting him could of dropped in price a fair bit if he had a poor start like last season. Maybe wanted to go Neale for pod factor but trading Holman out when his breakeven is lower than his lowest score and comfortably lower than his average didn't make sense

          Derek · 22/04/2018 at 20:00

          His BE was about 25, and he scored 32 last week, I can see why someone might if they wanted to go Kelly to Danger

            Ahmad rubas · 22/04/2018 at 20:13

            Yeah it's not bad if you can upgrade to a premo like Fyfe or danger but he seems like a rookie with plenty more cash to make and you can't say that about any other midfield rookies other than Kelly

    pod · 22/04/2018 at 20:08

    Yeah wow he's awesome a real keeper good luck with him.

      Crowboy94 · 22/04/2018 at 20:56

      Mate you are a flog! Did I ever say he is a keeper? I'm just laughing at the fact that people always jump the gun on rookies!!!

        Russty_ · 24/04/2018 at 00:08

        I guess they just want who they want at the time crowboy

Josh · 22/04/2018 at 18:47

Holman looks to be on track for a ton sitting on 88 at 3qtr, good response after last weeks efforts.

    Marty · 22/04/2018 at 20:56

    You had to write something didnt you? Lol. Now he ended up on 88.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 20:57

    You jinxed him josh 🙂

Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 18:59

Charlie Cameron!…what a magician, one of the Goals of the year.

Tyruddanaut · 22/04/2018 at 19:00

Dayne Zorko, you absolute waste of space
Edit: I didn’t realize he was injured

    Finnius · 22/04/2018 at 19:03

    only just then though… Has been rubbish for three quarters.

    Wedge · 22/04/2018 at 20:41

    He was completely tagged out of the game by touk miller. Only injured late. Will be tagged all year now by the looks of it

Derek · 22/04/2018 at 19:48

<drags in my soap-box>

This is what frustrates me playing this game.

Last week, Had Holman on the field when he scored 32, This is with JKelly on bench, meaning Holman should have been on my bench.

This week, let’s put Garlet on the field and not risk that spud Holman stuffing up a good score.

I don’t mind getting beat when someone has Crips and I have Parker. But losing rank and matchs because of rookies on field who score 20’s just gives me the.

Thanks fellas for letting me vent.

<drags away soap-box>

    gator59 · 22/04/2018 at 20:03

    Geez Derek i'm playing you in The Rat Pack…. Boy oh boy wow wee you are having an absolute mare… Things can only get better mate just hang in there … You're a way better coach than most and i'm sure you'll turn it around mate

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 20:18

    Hi Derek.

    Why would you even consider putting Garlett onfield over Holman, just because he had one bad game in Perth last week? Garlett has done nothing and did nothing again this week.

    I have Brayshaw, Banfield, and Crowden on my midfield bench, but I still played Holman. I kept the faith. He deserved it after his first 3 stellar rounds.

    Sorry mate, no hankies from me.

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 21:18

      Cheers TH.
      I was so focused on what to do with JKelly and who to bring in, I missed it.

    hedski · 22/04/2018 at 20:20

    I've got Cripps Derek, if Fritsch doesn't play I'll cop Garletts 21.
    I'm not gonna go the early crow yet but after 3 or 4 years and maybe 7 or 8 head to heads, I may finally get a win against the bunnies….maybe. 👍

    INPieman · 22/04/2018 at 20:29

    Playing you in the cash league Derek. We have been equally let down by last weeks heroes. But I think you should still win. It's turned into a really bad week. Vent away

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 21:31

      Thanks fellas. I’m feeling better. It was the Hawks effort today that was most upsetting.

    SC_Donkey · 22/04/2018 at 20:58

    Just let it out mate I did last week, wasn't SC related, but it is the sane frustrating feeling that you need to let it out, Tbh you have a better team than mine, only thing that got me ahead of you is Simmo and Danger (C).

    My 402 points lead is not convencing and Hibbo who's unreliable this season. You may still beat me if Dusty, Tracca, Zerrett and Fritsch all go huge. Good luck in the last 2 games mate, we all need it.

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 21:47

      You are having a great week Donkey. You Have a few roughies to play, but I’d say your home and hosed

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 22:15

    Hey Derek hang in there mate, just learn from it…never trust Garlett again!…aka Pickett lol

      Derek · 22/04/2018 at 23:27

      Maybe Garlet IS Picket.

      Have you ever seen them in the field at the same time???

        Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 23:31

        That orange mess on Garlett's head does look a bit like a bad Wig?…lol

        gator59 · 22/04/2018 at 23:42

        Garlett and Pickett … That'd be worth money to go and see.. NOT.. That's when I would become a sniper in the crowd with a rifle and I would use that on probably myself if you had to sit and watch crap like them

zerowins · 22/04/2018 at 20:09

Does anyone know roughly what buddys price will drop too next week. I have henry and garlett on the field and they are killing me

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/04/2018 at 20:46

    He went in with a BE of 115 and pumped out a 48……………That means he is going to leak some decent cash. Will be marked down by around 30K IMO. If you want him, he will cost around $515K going into round 6.

      zerowins · 22/04/2018 at 20:48

      Might wait one or 2 weeks. Probably have to double downgrade this week

Rocksta · 22/04/2018 at 20:47

Robbie Gray a must have in the forward line?
I know he will be expensive next week, but you get what you pay for!
Rd 8 bye also not ideal, but [email protected]$ it, I’m goung to bote the bullet on Waterman to Gray next week

Rocksta · 22/04/2018 at 20:48

Robbie Gray a must have in the forward line?
I know he will be expensive next week, but you get what you pay for!
Rd 8 bye also not ideal, but [email protected]$ it, I’m going to bite the bullet on Waterman to Gray next week

    DavidSA · 23/04/2018 at 03:21

    That's why I had to get him in before this round his price is jumping massively

    Whatyasmokin · 23/04/2018 at 13:02

    Wait till after the byes for sure.

Rocksta · 22/04/2018 at 21:29

Sorry, Rd 10 bye.
A lot of points to lose between r6 and 10 not having him in.
Also, flog or not, I think Siciliy is a must have in defense at that price, even after next weeks increase.

    Russty_ · 22/04/2018 at 22:19

    True that Rocksta, you'll be able to cover Gray on the bench if you have decent rookies, yeah they're both worth having in there.

    Whatyasmokin · 23/04/2018 at 13:01

    Nah.

BlueBaggerJosh · 22/04/2018 at 22:43

zorko gonna be real cheap, dont think ill want him tho even if he reaches 450k, might snap up merrett.

Marty · 22/04/2018 at 22:51

Tigers and Demons have two games within 6 days so some players will be rested and may not play this week. Please be Fritsch!
Higgins and Lloyd didn't play VFL today.
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-04-22/demons-drop

NEIL DemonsDelight · 23/04/2018 at 07:32

Interested to see BALIC A juicy DPP who is a contested mark freak. Those extra years gives him an edge on players like FRITSCH. No longer homesick and good current form (6 goals last week) Little bit expensive but hey so was FISHER

dontblushbaby · 23/04/2018 at 13:18

Out -Vlastuin,Caddy – Injured ,Graham – Suspension
In – Higgins, Lloyd and Broad are my thoughts

Marty · 23/04/2018 at 18:11

Sicily on a misconduct charge for stepping on Shaun Atley. Just when I congratulate the flog for the weekend he might get another suspension.

    Russty_ · 24/04/2018 at 00:03

    Yeh Marty he's a moron allright…will have to move him on if he cops multiple weeks.

Marty · 23/04/2018 at 18:35

Fritsch named as an emergency. Happy days!

Tyruddanaut · 24/04/2018 at 18:10

Lobb being out (again) throws a spanner into the works! Not just one, actually, but two. Two trades that I must use on three players: Zorko, Bonner, and the previously mentioned, Lobb.

I have to hold. There is no way around it, Zorko will lose money and so will my mid priced cash cow Riley B. I have had a shocking start to the year but, with strategy, I can fix it.

Doedee, Finlayson and Kelly will be keepers unless I find myself with spare trades. I am hoping that they will fit into D7, M9 and M8 respectively, but I can’t be sure.

I have almost completed my forward line, too. I have 6 forward eligible premiums, including Sicily who will move when it is structurally necessary.

Let’s just pray that I can field 22 next week. I think with DPP I should be able to.

    Luke · 24/04/2018 at 18:29

    Bonner isn't losing money
