The Standing Room | Round 7

Published by Lekdog on

Well community, Geelong v GWS was a bit pox wasn’t it?

Pull up a stool and grab a beer, let’s chat.

My summary of the night is as follows:

Kelly, Henry, Selwood = Good

Gongigliog = Bad

Dangerfield with a 108 = Cheap Soon But Injured Maybe?

Finlayson = Running Out Of Gas

 

Let’s talk trades and VC/C.

I’ll be taking Selwood’s 135 myself.

 

UPDATE: BONT OUT!!!

Hold

Open to ideas (320k bank)

Jbara

once Zerrett in – bank 83.7k

benodonohue

I’ve got the VC on Mitchell for today and C on Gawn for Sunday’s game. If needed I will use olango ruck loop straight after hawks game depending on Mitchell performance today. Agree, Finlayson will be traded out of mine during the week..

Ahmad rubas

Yeah seems like best thing to do titch into Gawn I wish hadn't put the VC on danger hopefully titch does well as my C

Derek

Doing the same.

NoLanguage

Titch 127. Gotta roll with big Max surely?

benodonohue

Yeah mate, counting on Gawny tomorrow with the C… Hickey’s not far from hopeless so would expect atleast Titch’s 127 +

theRealPod

Henry was awesome last night. The new Harry Taylor?

What to do with T Kelly. Eventually trade him to a top 8 mid or keep him as a M9. I'm thinking up to a nice pod after the bye.

Dangerfield is definitely carrying a small injury or two. He is improving but with Gaz to return will he stay in the fwd line? If you haven't already got the man, he will be damn cheap soon.

Ahmad rubas

I think Kelly should be M8 until your forwards defence and rucks are full premo

JEL

Agreed, he will be staying as my M8 until the rest of the team is sorted.
Hopefully he stays intact and doesn't get injured or have a slump.

Mr.Brightside

Higgins or Holman on field ?,can't loop already doing it with Henry

Ahmad rubas

I'd back Holman in bounce back with 80+

Beezneez

Have to make the same choice but throw Spargo and Crowden into the mix. Thinking Holman to bounce back – don't like the fact that he is named on the bench whereas Crowden is named on the ball. Spargo may be the one. as well. Wish I had a loop in the mids but I haven't. Don't think Holman will be tagging cos Bont is out.

Eric_the_Red

Should I trade buddy to mundy to make it a 5 premium forward line, or trade buddy to Bont to make it a 6 premium mid?

Late out

Do no trade in bont

Sc_Wow

You def need more than 5 premo mids though

elliot

should've had the emergency on Langdon last night :/ stupidly had him on field with curnow on bench could have maybe loopholed fritsch :/

Ahmad rubas

Laird Hurley hibberd finlayson doedee cole (Murray coffield)
Danger titch Fyfe Cripps coniglio telly banfield Holman (jelly dow brayshaw)
Gawn Goldstein (olango)
Heeney smith petracca billings Higgins Langdon (fritsch crowden)
25 trades 76k
Would the best move be double downgrade next week then bring in dusty round 9?

One Touch Wonder

The SHARK MOVE has been made. Ultimate POD. Only in 1532 teams. Delayed start to the season. Last two scores of 95 and 127. Might go 150+ this week. Will easily be in the top 10 forwards for the year. Same price as Sicily but in better team and a better player.

Troy

Tom Lynch? lol not in a better team and not better than Sicily

Troy

Also, who cares about top 10 forwards, you want the top 6 forwards and Tom Lynch won't even be in the top 10, let alone top 6

Hoot

With Bont out who from WBD will likely move field positions?

INPieman

McLean might get more time in the guts

Defying_Madness

Great news, hopefully he can clean up his efficiency

theRealPod

Dahl a chance

Simon

Bontempelli a late out- this is the week from hell

Derek

That is rough. What wrong with him?

hedski

Hip soreness

Russty_

Apparently he's been battling it all season, explains why he's had a few low scores, imagine if he was fully fit?

Mike

Hey guys! How should I use my 2 trades for this week? I have 300k leftover and 25 trades for the season.

DEF: Laird Yeo Doedee Murray Naughton Richards (Mirra Murphy)
MID: Titch Dusty Fyfe Bontempelli Cripps Parker Kelly* Finlayson* (Holman Banfield Coffield)
RUCK: Gawn Nank (Olango)
FWD: Heeney Smith Sicily Petracca Billings Fritsch (Langdon Guelfi)

Davo

Start fixing backs, banfield to spargo and a back rookie to hurley or simpson

Mike

I was thinking Murray and Richards to Seedsman and Webster, do you think that is too risky?

BlueBaggerJosh

back ya gut mate

Errol

Finlayson for Macrae
Billings out

Marty

vc and c – Mitchell into Gawn

Marty

Bombers v Hawks – only change is Henderson out for Cousins.

sc tragic

Supercoach the game that keeps on giving….

Pete

Hey guys take Selwood score 135?
Or go Gawn, dusty, mitchel?

Krups

Take 135 man. Thats 270 locked in

Tyruddanaut

Selwood fo-sho

TommyC99

I know I just asked this in the panic room, but Titch or Gawn C?

BloodyFranklin

Gawn IMO.

Frozen water bomber

I chose gawn too, but with my luck so far this week it wouldnt surprise me if he gets 50. Cogs and merrett killed me

hedski

Geez Crossley from the suns looks a willing type, and McLean is a tough bugger, that hit would have hurt.

Russty_

Looks like a bit of a 70's pornstar lol

Russty_

Merrett off to a flyer on 7 points at quarter time, T-Mitch is being tagged by Heppell, not working too well so far haha

Tyruddanaut

Lift Merrett and Smith!!!
Like, now

Tyruddanaut

Ooh… is OLango to Crossley in two weeks a bad trade?

DavidSA

Holman I'm glad you are making cash but damn you for looking like a 90+ score 😥 On my bench lol

Tyruddanaut

He can get rested now, thank you

INPieman

Who had balls big enough to put Holman onfield

AuroraBorealis?!

I did, was more a lack of other options than testicular fortitude however

Troy

Been on my field all season

Tyruddanaut

Took him off last second

Defying_Madness

Me, the bulldogs are shit and he has scored well against poor teams

BloodyFranklin

Nah… fielded Naughton.

Russty_

He's done bugger all since quarter time.

Dermin8r

I'm guilty of that, sadly, I also had Nick Shipley on the field…

allen

anyone know what dangers price and b/e will be around this week?

BadgerHoney7

640 k – 150 be

DavidSA

How Stringer gets a game over Guelfi is beyond me
He was let go by the Dogs for a reason

Defying_Madness

Guelfi was rested, should be back next week

Crowboy94

Guelfi being out this week gave me a loop to get Henry's 115 🙂 so thanks Essendon haha

theRealPod

What a dud he is. I can't believe he was once All Australian. He should be dropped to the magoos so the rookies can play.

Tyruddanaut

Naughton Loophole, check.

allen

who to field out of banfield, brayshaw or d.fogarty (ade)
with botempelli out i need to put one on the field. my opponent in my cash laegue have similiar players and he has banfield on field. looking like i wont get up unless i take a risk.. thinking of putting brayshaw on field..

or… will fogarty go alright against carlton?

Defying_Madness

Naughton to Bonner has to be one of my greatest trades 😭

BloodyFranklin

Aw man that hurts.

BadgerHoney7

ur not alone 🙁

Holty01

Wow. Decided to put Roughy on the bench and keep fisher onfield to get henrys score. Looks like Roughy is finally going to score something respectible.

BlueBaggerJosh

Traded in Macrae 😍, should've put the C on him, Backing Gawn to go nuts on Saints though.

BlueBaggerJosh

My god he might hit the double ton

DavidSA

He has gone to another level this year

hedski

He is killing it Josh, great trade in 👍

DavidSA

I brought in McLean happy I did he too is feasting on this joke of a club. Fwd line when buddy comes back

Gray, Heeney, McLean, Mundy, Franklin

BlueBaggerJosh

damn that is beautiful, much better than mine lol.

Unagi_Don

Top notch – though that round 14 bye is gonna hurrrrrrrt.

Rick Grimes

I'm envious. It Was him or Cripps this week. Looks like I got it wrong. I was saving last mid spot for danger but might go Macrae instead.

BlueBaggerJosh

I have both, don't think you could go wrong with either. Agree with your last point, I started Danger and kinda regretting it. Could've had an extra 100k in the team with same if not better scoring output,

Defying_Madness

Macrae the new danger? He is looking like a must have

INPieman

JOM you prick. But I'm happy with his replacement

Russty_

Always the way isn't it?…as soon as you trade em out.

hedski

Who'd ya trade him to Pie? Macrae?

Whatyasmokin

Didn't hit his BE so not a real loss there.

Frozen water bomber

Told my sister to trade JOM for Zerrett, arent i a good brother lol

Ja191

hmmm do I take the mitchel vc if he makes 120 before the west coast game starts?

DavidSA

Unless it's over 130 don't take it
Gawn might not have great scores against Saints but he is red hot atm and the Saints are just a shadow compared to previous seasons.

Gawn for me if Titch not 130+

Ahmad rubas

I'd take it I think he will 130 by end of the match

Russty_

Just hit 120, better do it quick

INPieman

126 with 2 mins to go is good enough

Ja191

yeah took it better to be safe than sorry

AuroraBorealis?!

Zerrett cannot handle a tag, i think this is a lesson i can take into the following seasons: NO MIDGETS (apart from Titch)

hedski

Shout out to my new recruits this week, well done Jelwood and Good Toby, 270 odd points between you, bloody great work fellas.

Russty_

Nice work hedski, reckon I'll be grabbing good Toby next week..or Joe Daniher, just kidding 🙂

Ben

Pretty happy with trading Sicily in this week

Derek

I bet you are. I’m just happy the Hawks beat the Bombers. The logical thing was to get him, but I just couldn’t. I Might regret it.

Not as much as I regret trading TKelly to Dangerfield. Wouldn’t mind that one over.

Frozen water bomber

Dont worry derek not the only one, i had him all week and 10 mins before last nights game reversed my trades, he had to go big because i did that

TOPHAWK1

Traded in Sicily as well. Bloody stoked. But my joy may be short lived IF he decides to have another brain explosion. Bloke is a gun when playing.

Westy

Me too. Yep, he may be a flog, but he's our flog.

TheGreatBozza

Wow Macrae! Didn’t see such a high ceiling on him. Well done to all that jumped on

What are the thoughts on taking Titchells 127? Gawn would be my C option. I’m going to take Holmans 67 over Banfield

Unagi_Don

Didn't see the high ceiling on Macrae?! – starts the season with four out six matches 120, 142, 131, 141 and now the 189. An accumulator, good kick to handball ratio, high tackle numbers = the most SC-friendly combo. Still don't understand how he was a POD in 6% of teams after round 6.

Gotta put it down to the Dogs being a minnow club, plus over-shadowed by the magnetism of the Bont.

Also, lessons from the past would suggest be smart/conservative and take the 127 (that's what I'm doing). Gawn's 3-round average against the Saints is 93, and feel like the saints aren't just lie back and think of England tmrw – it's a big game for them.

TheGreatBozza

Yep ill be the first to admit I got Macrae wrong. Will look to bring him in post bye, hopefully with his price coming back to 600k (hoping but doubtful at this point)

I’m locking in Titch too. Solid captains score

Jim_bob321

Thinking Gawn C but want a nice POD C….
Cripps…. fyfe… laird.. simmo

DavidSA

WesthOFF tonight

theRealPod

No surprises with Ryder back. Port should of rested Ryder for one more week, they were playing good footy with previous structure.

TOPHAWK1

I am taking Titches VC score. 127 will do after trading in Sicily today. Not going to be greedy and risk Gawn having an off day. 400 points with Sicily debut score is gold. Time to consolidate.

Justin

Anyone like Cripps as Captain instead of keeping it on Titch or going Fyfe/Dusty????

Dermin8r

I had him as my Captain last week, he is capable of some big scores

Holty01

My decision making this week has been horrible. ZGL on field instead of Henry. Put Roughy on the bench to loop Henrys score and Roughy tons up. Then decided if Naughton scores 70 plus id have him on field instead of Cole. Oh well, at least Henry and Cole are making me money

Frozen water bomber

I know he tonned up but why on earth do you have roughead? Not sure of his average but surely not your smartest move (not poking fun, i have billings)

Multi_

In fairness to Holly he was a good starting price and with him swinging through Ruck and mid should be averaging higher. I seriously considered him when picking my team

Holty01

He has been very underwhelming. He has been a very good sc scorer in the past. I was hoping he would get back to his best this year. Will hold however and hope he can repay the faith.

Frozen water bomber

Yeah thats fair enough i guess, only reason i asked is because he burnt me badly last year!

Tyruddanaut

Naughton:
52 HT
75 FT

Cole:
57 HT

I hope I didn’t do the wrong Loophole with Naughton

John

Do I keep Titch’s score or put the C on Gawn or Fyfe?

Ja191

i'd play it safe and take it John. I don't see gawn/fyfe scoring over 150 so you're only really gaining 40 points with chances of injury/off games

Justin

What about Cripps

Ja191

away at adelaide, carlton will get smashed. worth a vc but not a c imo

John

Could go Cripps as well, my opponent has Fyfe as captain

Baggy Pants

Play it safe if Gawn or Fyfe score 150 you only gain 23 points. Its not 46 as some people think.

Beaver

wrong bro

Beaver

Gawns going for 180

BadgerHoney7

so – the maths here, titch 127+ 127 = 254, gawn/fyfe 150+150 = 300.
300-254 = 46
am I right or am I right

redherringfc

Try this

127 +127+ 150 = 404
150 + 150 + 127 = 427

427-404 = 23

You need to actually count your non captain’s score in your calculations.

I think we might need a 3rd option.

Russty_

Nice one…so based on that, you'd definitely take titch's I think, unless you need a Hail Mary.

Westy

Brought in Sicily – woot.
Brought in Merrett – no woot.
Winners so far – Macrae, Sicily, Henry, T Kelly
I'm even happy with Keeffe's first game.

JugHead

Who scores higher, Murray or Duman?

DavidSA

Murray

Qwert

I'm thinking of trading Murray to Duman to generate $$ for next week…so Duman to answer your question.

Defying_Madness

Happy I brought in Yeo this week, now I just need Simpson to go big as well

Russty_

It's certainly been in his area a lot tonight so far!

Defying_Madness

Very happy I don't have to deal with Billings anymore

Russty_

Good one DM, no more 47's for you haha

TheBenchmark25

I think billings will ton up today
I'll eat my words later

theRealPod

haha I bet he does. I think he's due. I can't believe he's still in 16% of teams!

BiggySc

Had the vc on Macrae and worked some loophole magic with Jack Henry. Things are looking up this round! (Touch wood)

Holty01

Ive been saying if Kennedy gets the tag by jacobs and scores 90 plus, im bringing him in. 27 at quarter time not bad at all

Russty_

Yeah he's killing it!, they're both over 50 with 10 mins to go in the second.

BlueBaggerJosh

Kelly is my m8, what situation are you in Holty? Have 2 spots to fill? Don't think Kelly-JPK is worth the trade

Holty01

Jpk will be my M7
Danger will be my last upgrade if he starts improving. If all works out Kelly will stay M9
Mids are at present
Titch
Cripps
Oliver
Pendles
Cogs
Fyfe

TOPHAWK1

You'd think Parker has the Jacobs tag the way he is playing. Turning into a right royal SPUD.

Russty_

Looking ominous for Carlton, they are getting smoked on all lines.

TOPHAWK1

Carlton fighting hard Russty. Just 16 points down 4 minutes from half time.

Russty_

Yeah mate good to see, much better effort there in the second Q…hate boring games where one side gets flogged, like watching stkilda every week.

TOPHAWK1

Parker……..mate you better produce something in the second half, or you will become my first sideways trade this season. Giving me the absolute shits!!!
