Russty_

Hey Lek….The Avatar looks a bit like a UFC Fighter with gigantic pointy Nuts, they look like tough nuts though.
Maybe a 90's UFC fighter like Dan Severn, he had a moustache too πŸ™‚

neil demons delight

good memory Russty How are your SAINTS going to go against the MIGHTY DEES Against better judgement bringing in flog what do you think LEK and RUSSTY GREAT SECTION CHOICE

Russty_

Hey Neil, I think we'll get flogged mate, probs just be a training run for your Dees, Saints are going backwards to the bottom I think.
Sicily..good choice if…..you know what I mean haha

neil demons delight

yeah mate SICILY a big risk .A few years ago (a lot actually)the dees were undefeated on top playing the winless bears . We were 1.01 to win. On the morning of the game they lost VOSS and Lynch their best players. Guess what Russty they won and that sums Melbourne up No killer instinct and let your mate win it..Give me the HAWKS or DOGS any day they never give up but, Russty ,the COLAC under 10's would still be a big chance against the SAINTS Good luck anyway bud

Russty_

Yeah mate sad but true, the Saints are a bust this year, no decent forward line to speak of…or in the forseeable future, have given up on them, but not my Supercoach side yet haha..there's still some hope there.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Chuck was always one of my favourites a classic street brawler. πŸ˜‰

dSaSpatSfcB

Russty, anyone who remembers 'The Beast' gets a double thumbs up from me. RESPECT. The other Mo Bro was Don 'The Predator' Frye.

Russty_

Yeah mate…Frye was a beast too!…UFC was different back in the 90's ay?…no rules!..one code against another, no jujitsu yet and no MMA.

John

How many premos do people have at the moment

Da Boysh

I have 17, assuming you count 450k+ in the forward line, nank, and heath shaw

Da Boysh

and Petracca – lets round him up by 10k XD

Sc_Wow

He’s not premo don’t kid yourself

Da Boysh

so 16. The prodigy has spoken

JohnDJ59

14 all up, Def 3, Mids 6, Ruck 2, Fwds 3.

Sc_Wow

16

Dice_real

Hope it's Lekdog's puppies in relation to that photo at The Manhattan last year!

SC_Sixty6

Interested to hear thoughts on Walters, Lek?

neil demons delight

Forward line possibilities goes deep but are TARANTO FISHER and HOGAN REALLY THERE Good back ups though

James

DEF: laird yeo Sicily finlayson doedee Murray (naughton Murphy)
MID: Fyfe Martin Mitchell Cripps Coniglio Zorko Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)
RUCK: Martin Gawn (Cameron)
FWD: Heeney Greene Billings Christensen Fristch Guelfi (Henry Keefe)

24 trades left, I think I’m going to hold this week, thoughts?

pod

Switch Sicily to forward for Greene and put Naughton on field

James

I’m thinking about trading Greene to McLean, it sounds like Greene is going to be out for a while.

Dermin8r

McLean has done right by me all season (so far) I would go with that upgrade.
You could also consider upgrading Sicily or Murray to Hurn (from WCE) for some more scoring in your backline.

Russty_

Greene to Mclean is a good trade, Fritsch is on the extended bench for Sunday and Guelfi is dropped, Henry and Keefe are named on-field.

Russty_

What pod said makes sense if you don't want to trade Greene out.

Sellars1226

What's the situation on M Crouch? Is he set to drop again this week? If so my trades this week will be

Brayshaw/Kent to Higgins/Spargo which leaves me 264K to get him in next week

But if not thinking Brayshaw and Kent to JPK and Spargo

pod

Be 182 probably won't make it so get him next week

neil demons delight

Mirra out

Lazza

Guelfi too, but ZGL selected.

prizza

Easy kill for the veteran pies coming in ,, the game has moved up that notch again this year , glad its Brisbane and not the tigers of last week.
Smart thinking one would think.
Not talking supercoach , my team is carnaged.

BadgerHoney7

Couple of weeks ago we were debating who to bring in, Mirra or Duman, everyone said Mirra. This week Duman starting CHB, Mirra out. So happy I went Duman. Can't believe Guelfi was dropped on the other hand.

Russty_

He was rested mate, 3 games too much for him.

neil demons delight

Was Lockett ever rested? never They're pussies now

Russty_

Days gone by mate, it's a different game now…Coaches would be crucified now via social media if they didn't appear to be 'looking after their players' enough.

Dildor

Lockett never ran 17kms a game

Whatyasmokin

Geez……

joe

(via Essendon press release)
Worsfold explained his omission is intended to give the tough on-baller a rest.
“We were really pleased with what Matt showed"

BadgerHoney7

On other news, Matty Eagles was named. Maybe The Recruit 'might' offer something good

Russty_

It'd be nice to see 1 'recruit' actually play a game haha

DavidC

Eagles has been very good in NEAFL again this year after a standout performance in the NEAFL grand final. They would want him to take the #1 forward to free up Andrews to play a more intercept role. I hope he gets a chance. No point in having a 29 year old on the list if you are never going to play him.

Dildor

Hes 29? Fark. He's already done.

Jim_bob321

Have Walters and Guelfi…
Playing with one less forward, maybe even two if Fritsch doesn't get named..
Should I just trade Walters to Sicily or hold?
Thanks

Russty_

Some wise heads in here seem to think Walters could be out for longer than predicted mate…I'd dump him if I had him.

neil demons delight

Dis agree mate Last year I could have used that trade in the granny

Russty_

I wouldn't like to have 460k on the bench for possibly 4 weeks with a be of 158…better punted for a scorer.

joe

This is a no-brainer unless I am missing something. Walters is out for a month; when he comes back, his low score will reduce his price anyway if you want to buy him back for cheaper.

DavidC

That would be a waste of two trades.

TOPHAWK1

Brought in Sicily and McLean tonight. BANG BANG!

Russty_

Nice work mate!…Sicily forward or back?

TOPHAWK1

Bought Sicily in on my backline and McLean in up forward. My warchest is now officially drained after those two trades. Time to pray. LOL . Cheers Russty

neil demons delight

Billings will be nice and cheap shortly A real pod too like Zorko

Russty_

I wouldn't advise that to anyone Neil…lol, no offence mate.

neil demons delight

Took the bait sorry needed a laugh

Russty_

I'll take your bait! πŸ™‚

Russty_

I did the similar thing Hawk and then reversed it, Bonner to Shaw and Christensen to Mclean..with 5k left, but then decided to go Bonner to Yeo and holman to Spargo, but reversed that too haha, now I'm just gonna wait until Sunday teams are released, gotta field a full team above all else.

TOPHAWK1

Hi Russty. I was kinda kidding around a bit last night. I can trade in Sicily and McLean at the same time. But only if I flick Petracca and Parker….LOL Mind you, it's amazing how much my team looks after those two sideways moves. But I have to stay discliplined and get only one of those two in this week. I want Sicily first, and then McLean next week. So I have also hit the REVERSE button this morning.

Probably will have to grab Spargo early for Christensen, and then cull Holman for Sicily via DPP. Swing Finlayson into the midfield to prepare him for culling. Then Sicily will be down back as my third defensive premo. I prefer him down back rather than up forward. Unless there is a compelling reason to do otherwise, that is probably my most likely play. Spewing that Guelfi and Mirra have been omitted. Hopefully will be back soon. Cheers Russty!

Coxforbrownlow

thoughts on trading in dunman and zac langdon as downgrade? not sure if to just leave the downgrades for next week as there are many up and coming next week.
Cheers community

seen_burns

Depends who your trading out, and missed the 40k Langdon made.

Coxforbrownlow

hey community
thoughts on going finlayson to witherden / savage?

cheers again community

Russty_

I'd go Murray out before Finlayson if you have Murray.

Dermin8r

Agreed, I just upgraded Murray into Hurn

Coxforbrownlow

cheers rusty you specimen

Dermin8r

Lekdog, thank you for talking me into Cripps at the start of the season, I had Zorko in my midfield and swapped him for Zorko before the season began and it has paid huge dividends. Cheers!

Carl

Hold on gibs or move him on ?

seen_burns

Hold

Whatyasmokin

Hold for sure

Trades

Bring in either Bont, Selwood, Merret using 1 trade.
Bring in Cripps using 2
Or
Wait until Crouch and Oliver drop in price?

seen_burns

Depends who your trading out for them, but I'd just wait for Crouch and Clarry

Coxforbrownlow

hey community
who to trade murray up to?
atm im thinking of going with a pod in witherden.

cheers community

Simo036

Witherden or Hurn both be good for around same price

Dice_real

Do Stuey Dew and Michael Barlow don't get along?
Leather poisoning in the neafl this year, couldn't get a game until last week.
Played up fwd 1st half before going on the ball and got a fair bit of it after half time.
Got named in the best……and now omitted. WTF DEW

Dildor

Its a future thing, they're never gonna win a premiership with Barlow, so why play him over someone that is the future.

Dice_real

Then why name him in the best?
The could be said for Kade Simpson and Carlton

Multi_

Surely Aaron Hall is on that same shit list

Whatyasmokin

Who cares. Not supercoach relevant anymore unfortunately.

Razors Edge

Go full coin for Macrae or cheapie in Zerrett? Got $780k to play with

seen_burns

Good options next week with Crouch and Oliver dropping in price, more value in them then a 600k+ Macrae who might average the same as them

Multi_

I Agree with Seen ill be waiting for Crouch and Oliver

Razors Edge

I might go Crouch! Already got Oliver and the big 4 (Dusty, Danger, Fyfe, Titch)

POTS

Is Buddy a trade or hold?
Can go anyone on any line up to $640K

Beezneez

Need some advice.

Mids are Danger, Martin, Tich, Fyfe Cripps, Coniglio, T Kelly and Holman (Higgins, Brayshaw and Barry)
Fwds are: Heeney, Billings, Gray, Sicily, D Smith and ZGL (Guelfi and Crowden).

Have done the projections and am looking at one of two options:
Option 1: R7 Brayshaw to Spargo and Billings to McLean
R8 Crowden and Barry to Mutch and Worpel
R9 Holman to Crouch/Oliver – may need small downgrade to effect this trade.

Option 2: R7 Brayshaw to Spargo
R8 Crowden to Mutch/Worpel and Holman to McLean

I need the downgrade to effect the Billings to McLean trade – should I just leave it at that and wait for Crouch if another opportunity presents. Down to 23 trades atm.

Any thoughts appreciated.

NoLanguage

Hey Beez,

I would pull the trigger on Billings now. He's just not producing what you need for a premo and doesn't look like it. Spargo looks a jet so don't mind option 1. I'll be grabbing him this week along with Merrett as a fence paint πŸ™‚

Beezneez

Thanks NoLanguage. Yeah that's the way I had been leaning all week.

Ando

Hey Community! Thoughts on loopholing this week?

Danger into Titch or Gawn

Titch into Gawn

Leaning towards the latter because Danger doesn't seem to be at his best…

Gazza

Do I move Gibbs to macrae or hold Gibbs ?

JugHead

Fritch and Higgins both confirmed starters

JugHead

And Spargo for those going early

Russty_

Cool bananas, cheers Jughead.

JugHead

Gaff as a POD anyone?
Scores this year of 92, 103, 123, 103, 128, 103. Not a stratospheric ceiling, but not bad either.
Priced at 552k, a little expensive for my taste, but if his price drops at some point I'll be jumping on him as a potential M8. Started the season at 512k. Should be in the general discussion of midfield PODs IMO.
Here's what I like about him:
1.5% ownership.
Hardly misses a game.
Priddis and Mitchell are not there to take points off him anymore.
NicNat is back.
Has 150+ games under his belt now and is in his football prime.
Has a successful team around him.
