Forget Dusty, Danger and Titch, we have a new uber SuperCoach premium on the block.

Bulldogs midfielder Jackson McRae has been in white hot form so far in 2018 and his monster 189 SC against the Suns on Saturday confirmed his status in the upper echelon of SuperCoach premiums.

McRae is now a must-have in the midfield and his season average now sits at a mouth-watering 132 after seven matches.     

Another indifferent round saw plenty of mixed scores with some coaches struggling to crack the 2000 barrier and other pushing up past 2300.

The Heroes

Jackson Macrae (189 SC) had arguably the best match of his AFL career for the Dogs on Saturday. 26 of his 40 possessions were contest, while he also had 12 clearances and eight tackles. He has now punched out scores of 120, 142, 131, 103, 98, 141 and now 189 so far in 2018. Teammate Toby McLean (149 SC) also had a day out, finishing with 32 touches, 13 tackles and seven clearances.

Nat Fyfe (142 SC) is well and truly back to the form he displayed during his Brownlow year. The bloke is simply a beast. 26 out his 33 possessions were contested and he had 12 clearances playing in the guts all match. A great captaincy option. Teammate Aaron Sandilands (144 SC) wound back the clock with 48 hit outs to smash out a monster score, while fellow Docker Lachie Neale (123 SC) also had a solid match.

With Paddy Dangerfield playing sore, Joel Selwood (135 SC) was enormous on Friday night for Geelong. He finished with 26 possessions, seven marks and nine tackles while teammate Mitch Duncan (134 SC) had 33 disposals, 16 contested possessions, eight marks and eight clearances.  

Max Gawn (127 SC) continued his magnificent recent form and remains the second highest averaging player in the game behind McRae. He’s banged out scores of 151, 168 and 127 in the past three weeks and is monstering his opponents in the ruck. Tom Mitchell (127 SC) is back to his best after a couple of down weeks and should consistently keep smashing out 130s.

Clayton Oliver (124 SC) and Matt Crouch (122 SC) are both excellent young players who specialise in contested ball and are firmly in the mix to finish as top 10 midfielders by the end of the season. Crows half back Rory Laird (120 SC) has been the best defender this season by a country mile, while Jack Redden (134 SC) will continue to get plenty of midfield time in West Coast’s engine room following an injury to Luke Shuey.  

Other significant scores: Ed Curnow (136 SC), Jack Darling (134 SC), Richard Douglas (132 SC), Jack Graham (131 SC), Tom Phillips (131 SC), Jesse Hogan (130 SC), Shaun Higgins (123 SC), Mason Wood (123 SC), Jordan De Goey (121 SC).

The Villains

Giants midfielder Stephen Coniglio (64 SC) had his first down game for season 2018 but can be forgiven given his prolific start. Still got plenty of the pill but wasn’t very efficient.

Zach Merrett (72 SC) was marked by James Cousins and his ability to handle a tag is becoming a significant concern. He’s not worth trading yet but keep a close eye on his scores for the next couple of matches.

Freo pair Luke Ryan (61 SC) and David Mundy (51 SC) are PODs and looked to be solid options a few weeks ago. But they have showed their true colours recently. The same can be said for Saints defender Shane Savage (72 SC).

Christian Petracca (40 SC) looked severely underdone in his return from a finger injury and is struggling to develop the aerobic capacity to spend long stints in the midfield. Collingwood midfielder Taylor Adams (45 SC) also looked out of sorts after returning from injury.

The Redeemers

After some disgusting scores in the 30s earlier in the year, Dayne Zorko (164 SC) was back in a big way on Sunday. Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley isn’t a big fan of tagging (just ask Tom Mitchell) and he allowed Zorko to completely get off the leash at the Gabba. He finished with 34 touches, 10 tackles and four goals and in a complete display.

Speaking of being back, Josh P Kennedy (150 SC) has produced consecutive 120+ scores after a pair of returns under 60 the fortnight before. He looks to be back to his contested best.  

James Sicily (145 SC) is a gun, no doubt about it. He had 14 marks on Saturday and 23 of his 29 disposals were by foot. He looms as a must-have in either the forward or defensive lines but there is always a concern about demeanour as he’s been suspended twice already this season and doesn’t look to have calmed his aggressive approach.

After slow starts to the season Kane Lambart (120 SC) and Michael Hibberd (99 SC) continue to try and redeem themselves, but the damage may have already been done.

The Prodigies

There’s little doubt who this season’s Rookie of the Year is. Tim Kelly (114 SC) is averaging over 100 – a significant effort for a rookie – and had 30 possessions on the weekend to register yet another three-figure score. Some were lucky enough to loop hole the score of Cats defender Jack Henry (114 SC), who had 11 marks on Friday night and looks to have cemented his spot in the side.

West Coast defender Tom Cole (88 SC) is proving he’s a reliable on-field option in defence, while teammate Willie Rioli (109 SC) should continue to score well after being granted extra time in West Coast’s engine room.

Collingwood pair Jaidyn Stephenson (84 SC) and Sam Murray (76 SC) were solid, while Tiger cub Jack Higgins (78 SC) will make his owners plenty of coin.

Bubble boys: Charlie Spargo (78 SC), Ben Ronke (66 SC), Oscar McInerny (65 SC), Flynn Appleby (57 SC), Kobe Mutch (52 SC), James Worpel (33 SC), Jack Petruccelle (33 SC), Nic Shipley (7 SC).

First gamers: Brad Scheer (69 SC), Brayden Crossley (63 SC), Lachie Keefe (51 SC), Matt Eagles (48 SC), Charlie Ballard (33 SC).

Other scores: Aaron Naughton (77 SC), Billy Gowers (76 SC), Adam Cera (75 SC), Paddy Dow (74 SC), Cam Rayner (73 SC), Esava Ratugolea (73 SC), Nick Holman (70 SC), Tom Doedee (68 SC),Lachlan Fogarty (66 SC),  Bayley Fritsch (65 SC), Harry McKay (63 SC), Jeremy Finalyson (62 SC),  Andrew Brayshaw (62 SC), Jordan Cunico (62 SC), Cam O’Shea (62 SC), Nic Coffield (59 SC), Zac Bailey (55 SC), Tim English (53 SC), Darcy Fogarty (52 SC), Dom Barry (52 SC), Jordan Gulluci (51 SC), Bailey Banfield (50 SC), Jarrod Garlett (48 SC), Hunter Clark (48 SC), Mitch Crowden (41 SC), Taylin Duman (39 SC),  Lochie O’Brien (37 SC), Ed Richards (35 SC).

 

The Damned

If you’re still holding Riley Bonner (62 SC), it’s time to pull the trigger. He’s not going to generate any more cash with scores like this.

Ruck pair Todd Goldstein (77 SC) and Matt Kruezer (62 SC) are nowhere near their best and should be punted for Brodie Grundy.

Jack Billings (57 SC) appears to be scared of getting the pill at the moment for fear he might miss another goal, so woeful has his conversion rate been this year. He didn’t even have a shot on goal this week.

Allen Christiansen (61 SC) has made his owners some cash but appears to be stagnating now and should be upgraded to a premo.

 Who are your heroes and villains from the round?

Lambert's current average of 89.5 is higher than his 2017 (86.0). A slow start but has redeemed and even provided a small profit.

    or billings to spargo then upgrade to premo defender

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 14:41

    Get rid of Billings. Whether it's to Spargo Sicily or Josh Bootsma get rid of him

      Stirlsy · 07/05/2018 at 17:05

      Bought him into team round 2 cos i had the extra coin saw it was a mistake after 2 games traded to Gray end of rnd 4. The move I should of made was Gray in round 2 I had him in team all preseason but because he missed Rnd 1 he was left out.

        INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 18:17

        Also went Billings to Gray a few weeks ago Stirlsy. No regrets

      jeff · 07/05/2018 at 18:35

      josh bootsma classic!

The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 14:39

Love ya work, thanks Carl.
Jackie Mac is my hero for the season so far, its nice when a POD pick comes off.
I'm up to my knees in Walpamur Fence Finish at the moment, Clarry last week, Matty C this week and Simmo next week then it's down tools until the byes.

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 14:55

    Picked up JMac last week Ranger. Star. Shout out to Rooster I think it was that put the VC on him. Probably still walking around full mongrel

      The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 15:31

      More fence painting this week Pieman?
      Plenty of fat rookies, plenty of fresh ones too, and all at the same time as there's plenty of premos who have shed a few bucks.
      Happy days.

        INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 15:39

        The Nic Nat news may change things Ranger. Otherwise fence paint for sure. P*ss Bundy off

          The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 15:56

          I thought that he might get away with it seeing as Amon got straight back up and took the free kick.
          I've got English as cover thankfully.
          Probably shouldn't have said that out loud, he'll get dropped now.

          Stirlsy · 07/05/2018 at 17:08

          You think they challenge it, I'm still trying to work out the high contact from MRP

TIGESB2B · 07/05/2018 at 14:50

Hmmm. Bont a late out. Who to sub out of Holman J.Higgins and Graham. Holman in Ballarat? – be too cold; Graham – nah, Dimma keeps using him as a tagger; so Higgo it was. 78. Not bad for a rook, but not quite 131. Damn you, Dimma!!

TIGESB2B · 07/05/2018 at 14:54

Oh, sorry to all the Cripps owners, and to those with JOM: you're welcome.

    HumanBob · 07/05/2018 at 18:31

    You should be apologising to the Dusty owners not Cripps owners TigesBoy2Boy
    Dusty ave 114.1 three-round ave of 87 five round ave of 100 – already dropped 91k and will drop another 30k this week

    Cripps ave 116.7 three-round ave of 129 five round ave of 114 already increased by 56k

      Octa · 07/05/2018 at 20:25

      Excellent point. No come back from Tiger!!!!!

      Fothermucker · 07/05/2018 at 20:59

      it almost feels like a movie plot where a certain section of the community (not this community) has spoken with Dusty and told him he is not to win the Brownlow.
      WTF, 3 rnd average of 87 …….. 🙁

Greg · 07/05/2018 at 15:04

Feel like I'm in a constant stage of downgrading rather than upgrading at the moment – will be likely making two downgrades this week, Garlett to Spargo and Holman to Mutch.

Have lots of areas to fix/improve (still running Finlayson, Doedee, Murray, have Kelly at M7, Goldstein, Billings), but feel like I need to build the bank given the rookies on the table at the moment.

Thankfully Henry coming through with the goods pushes him closer to a Gray trade in Round 11 but keep feeling like I'm treading water at the moment.

25 trades and 110k – any suggestions other than double downgrade?

Laird, Simpson, Hibberd, Finlayson, Doedee, Murray (Mirra, Murphy)
Danger, Mitchell, Martin, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Kelly, Holman (Dow, Brayshaw, Barry)
Gawn, Goldy (Olango)
Heeney, Dahlhaus, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Henry (Garlett, Guelfi)

    SC_Sixty_6 · 07/05/2018 at 15:09

    Do a downgrade to get Spargo in, then instead of Mutch, get a premium in. Holman, Murray, Doedee, FInlyason, Garlett can all be traded.

      Sc_Wow · 07/05/2018 at 15:11

      How’s your rank fake boy?

        SC_Sixty_6 · 07/05/2018 at 15:12

        Moved into the top 1000 this week, better and better every week. Wouldn't have this success without your wonderful advice.

          Sc_Wow · 07/05/2018 at 15:14

          Couldn’t be bothered making your own name?

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 17:38

          I have no doubt your around the 40k mark fake little boy who can't make his own reputation. It's quite flattering you follow me around on a site and try to cash in on people thinking you are me. You're a fake and a sad oxygen thief.

            wanker SC · 07/05/2018 at 18:46

          Go play with yourself mate….you're not contributing anything positive here, isn't there a violent PS4 game calling to you?

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 17:40

      You should make an account that is your real name. I'm thinking SC_FakeFlog

      homosexualSC · 07/05/2018 at 18:40

      I heard a rumour that the real SC_Sixty_6 wears womens underwear (fishnets) and enjoys showing his stockings off to Sc_Wow who's married but frequently struggles to get it up with Mrs Wow as he consumed with thoughts about SC.

      Keep up the good work fake SC these two are just flogs simple as that.

        Mrs SC · 07/05/2018 at 18:41

        agree

        SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:33

        Did you ever wonder why you play SC when you're so bad at it? I'd say stick to what you're good at but I can't see how you'd be good at anything.

          Multi_ · 07/05/2018 at 21:31

          Hey bud stop replying to them everyone knows who is who on here for the most part.
          Best way to deal with it is to ignore, letting them know it bothers you keeps them going mate

    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:40

    This all comes down to having a shit team. Maybe you could take some advice from Wow and 66. After all those fukheads are gods here, so they say.

    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 22:02

    Can't be in too much of a constant state of downgrading if you've only done 5 trades, I've done 10…5 is just doing a couple of trades.

PJ King · 07/05/2018 at 15:15

Macrae, not McRae

Connor · 07/05/2018 at 15:21

Traded Dusty in at $660,600 in Round 5 (was averaging 134) for Josh Kelly.
Since then, he is averaging 89 over 3 games and already dropped to $96,000 with a breakeven of 162…
Was gonna POD Macrae too (was $616,000 and since then has a 3 game average of 143).
Why do my trades always backfire???

    Corey · 07/05/2018 at 15:32

    I traded in Dusty three weeks ago too mate I understand your feeling

    Kkk · 07/05/2018 at 15:36

    Unlucky! Know how you feel connor, i knew zorko was going to go big this week. Watch billings go big next week because i trade him.

    Lazza · 07/05/2018 at 20:11

    What are you planning this week , I'll do the opposite .. 🙂
    Only kidding Connor, many of us have fallen foul to flash performances .. whether early or after we've traded … like Zorko this week.. I traded Zorko to Zerret … $ for $ I thought it would be a good trade … and zappo….
    Martin was in my sights … I'm waiting … post bye's now …
    hopefully you have plenty of trades left .. I do because I thought I didn't need correctives after R3 … WRONG !!!!
    So as long as I make the final 8 I will come home strong … for me only the cash leagues count now … and I'm thereabouts. (won them all last year).

      Connor · 07/05/2018 at 22:01

      rookies for me this week Lazza – you should be safe :')

        Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 22:08

        It's not backfiring Connor, you got the right players in, they're just a bit out of form at the moment, stick fat and all will come good mate, the worm will turn, I paid full price for Danger, Dusty, Mitchell and Oliver…lol, and….loving it.

BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2018 at 15:32

Nic Nat suspended for a week.

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 15:34

    F*ck

      Northernsoul74 · 07/05/2018 at 15:55

      Dam, I reckon English, my R3, is a chance for a rest this week as well.

        INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 16:02

        Downgrading English to McInerney makes sense. Swapping a donut loop man does not

          Defying_Madness · 07/05/2018 at 16:35

          Shit what do we do

        The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 16:43

        Looked a bit knackered at the weekend didn't he?
        Prob due a rest.

          The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 16:44

          The above was to Northernsoul74

    Stirlsy · 07/05/2018 at 17:16

    Puts a spanner in the works for me, inside top 1000 don't want to take a 0 CHALLENGE I call..

      INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 18:18

      Just outside the top 1k so need a back up plan. Can't afford a donut

    Bells · 07/05/2018 at 19:01

    Cameron has had two strong games in the ressies for Swans and pushing for selection. Keep an ear out for him – Sinkers in need of support – he's been Herculean, and if Franklin not back Cameron looks a natural in. If Buddy is back Cameron could still come in….maybe…

    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:43

    He's black so the dopey f*ck won't get off.

Gsal · 07/05/2018 at 15:43

Finlayson and banfield out to spargo and danger

Which will leave me with 19 trades 166k banked

Mids will be danger dusty titch oliver cripps coniglio fyfe and t.kelly (spargo,brayshaw,coffield)

Yay or nay or is there any other options?

Ranked 16532
2255 rd7

    JohnDJ59 · 07/05/2018 at 16:21

    You could wait another two weeks for Danger Gsal, he's still going down in price, I'd be looking at Crouch this week. Ask yourself, if Danger wasn't named Danger and you looked at his scores, would you even want to trade him in at the moment.

    redherringfc · 07/05/2018 at 17:53

    I’d wait on Danger, bring him in as your last midfield upgrade for Kelly. He looks like he has a lot of money to drop still. Scott hinted last week on AFL 360 that he was playing sore and it was causing him concern.

    I’d go for Crouch this week.

JEL · 07/05/2018 at 16:02

OUT Finlayson IN Hurley
OUT Banfield IN Spargo

Need to start adding some premos to my Def.
Still have 3 spots back there to look at.
The early rookies are starting to wobble, and the likes of Murray, Doedee & Naughton are close to the end of the line.

    Holty01 · 07/05/2018 at 16:16

    Agree with Murray. Naughton i feel still has good money to make. Doedee depends on this weekend. He is averaging 84 so im not in any rush to offload him at present

      JEL · 07/05/2018 at 23:23

      SC estimates Naughton & Doedee both have ~$50k to make, so for me that puts them in the zone.
      They're not top of the list to cull, but on the list if trades need to be done.

    Multi_ · 07/05/2018 at 21:33

    Daniher out for 4-6 weeks, could Hurley be moved forward? Would kill his scoring

Andrew · 07/05/2018 at 16:04

Macrae M Crouch or JPK?
Macrae best for my bye structure but boy does he cost some big ones
Leaning towards M Crouch at the moment would love to hear your thoughts community.

    Holty01 · 07/05/2018 at 16:13

    Im going JPK. Crouch is a solid option but reluctant to bring in Crows players with all these hammy problems going on. Macrae is having a fantastic year but i still have doubts he will keep it up. If he does continue however ill be well behind the 8ball

      b_sh3p · 07/05/2018 at 20:19

      Will JPK drop a fair bit when hanners is back?

James · 07/05/2018 at 16:06

Anyone know if Josh Kelly is expected back this week?

    seen_burns · 07/05/2018 at 16:22

    Should be this week

    SC_Sixty_6 · 07/05/2018 at 19:02

    Find out Thursday night

      Doc · 07/05/2018 at 19:33

      The real sixty6 could tell us right now mate😉

    Dean · 07/05/2018 at 20:12

    Both Greene and Kelly will miss this week

Laird Lad Donuts · 07/05/2018 at 16:08

Laird Lad Donuts has had a pretty shocking 3 weeks, losing to three top 5 teams by a total of 8 POINTS, 8 POINTS IN 3 GAMES and one loss to first place by 2 points.
Hurts pretty bad too when you trade westhoff to jack Henry and lose the game because of it… all in all ranked at around 17,000 so far and hopefully this week with Hurley and Yeo as my new inclusions i'll climb the rankings

    Holty01 · 07/05/2018 at 16:22

    2 solid inclusions mate

      Laird Lad Donuts · 07/05/2018 at 16:48

      cheers holty! Finlayson and doedee perfect time to head down to the slaughter house

Dominic Haley · 07/05/2018 at 16:10

I think at this stage I'll be sticking with Billings. He's young and can still turn things around, I have faith! Right now I have a few downgrade options: Waterman, Banfield and Finlayson (in mid) sticking out right now as I can trade one to Spargo and upgrade one of the mids to Crouch. What are people's thought's on downgrading from either Finlayson or Waterman to Spargo? leaning towards Waterman right now but that extra cash from Finlayson is tempting.

I think the smart decision is to wait on Danger until he get's the big score we know he's capable of. He'll keep going down the next few weeks until he drops the bomb and that's when I'll pounce.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/05/2018 at 16:25

    Agree on Danger, not on Billings.

    Speedy_Cerviche · 07/05/2018 at 16:49

    I would be downgrading Finlayson he has peaked, take the cash. Waterman can still make a little bit more.

    The Ranger · 07/05/2018 at 16:49

    Finlayson would be the one to move on Dom.
    Waterman still has a BE of 33 so you can squeeze another week out of him.

      Dominic Haley · 07/05/2018 at 17:28

      Beautiful, will make the move on Waterman next week if things go to plan!

BadgerHoney7 · 07/05/2018 at 16:16

As if Nic Nat gets suspended for that!

    Dominic Haley · 07/05/2018 at 16:24

    Absolutely graved me and my plans for this week :'(

      BadgerHoney7 · 07/05/2018 at 16:26

      Hope they challenge, no stretch in imagination is that a week, absolute joke and poor from the MRP, they're getting worse with that flog Michael Christiansen.

        Dominic Haley · 07/05/2018 at 17:29

        If he challenges, you would think he gets off.. not much there at all. Let's just pray WCE aren't conservative.

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 17:49

          Conservative? Costs em 10k and that's it. Has to be challenged! Absolute disgrace

            SCblowie · 07/05/2018 at 18:54

            do you prefer the balls or the shaft?

        Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 18:35

        I truly thought he would be too Badger, pretty much like putting Eddie in charge of the tribunal but I reckon he's been very reasonable and actually explains himself well. That said the Nic Nat call is wrong. Hope this one bad call is just an anomaly and not done to help the struggling Giants who play the Eagles this week and have a history of being touched up by the big palm tree

        Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:23

        they will be challenging it and id reckon he will be ok

    Stirlsy · 07/05/2018 at 17:21

    Yep absolute crap, big ruckman aren't allowed to tackle now, but you can go around whacking them in the guts and get a 2k fine.
    Reading the report it says high contact but im failing to see that.

    redherringfc · 07/05/2018 at 18:05

    I think he needs a rest anyway.

    Nothing to do with the fact I own Lycett and I want one last week out of him before I pull the trigger.

      Phil · 07/05/2018 at 18:37

      Haha I'm with you redherring, love to see Lycett rucking solo with a chop out from McGovern. Might score well enough to delay his upgrade another fortnight. Perth to Sydney's a long trip, perfect time to rest the big fella

    SC_Donkey · 07/05/2018 at 18:59

    It is what it is, I'm just gonna take it in chin and cop a donut this week. I have Pendle who might not play this week, can't cover them all. Oh Well!!

    Lazza · 07/05/2018 at 20:15

    I disagree with most … his intent from the time he took off was to bury him … the guy was on the boundary, only had to grab him to get a holding the ball free, but elected to bury him face first into the turf .. in the back and all … watch it again … Nic Nat went at 100 MPH no care whatsoever .. my first thought was .. reported – 1 week.

Jono · 07/05/2018 at 16:27

Hey Big Carl, another awesome article, keep up the great work!! My team scored 2,108 this week!! The trade I’m doing this week is Banfield out and Spargo in!! After this trade I will have $698,700 k in the bank!! My team is as follows;

Defenders; Laird,Yeo,Hurley,Doedee,Murray and Finlayson. (Naughton and Redman)

Mids: Dangerfield,Dusty,Mitchell,Fyfe,T.Kelly, Holman,Coffield,Spargo. (Garlett,Barry,England)

Rucks: Gawn and Nic Nat (Cameron)

Forwards; Robinson,Smith,Billings,Rayner, Stephenson,Fritsch. (Buddy and Crowden)

Any thoughts for my team?

Who should I consider for captain and vice captain this round?

Cheers Jono Carroll

    Speedy_Cerviche · 07/05/2018 at 17:00

    With all that cash I would bring a premo in. Maybe Holman to Matt Crouch? Good value at $533k

      James · 07/05/2018 at 18:08

      Holman to JPK
      JPK sub $500k is hard to ignore

        Jono · 07/05/2018 at 19:27

        Thanks for the suggestions James and Speedy, I already have enough players from the rd14 bye so I probably won't get another player from that bye round!!

Jim_bob321 · 07/05/2018 at 16:30

Who is more important, Macrae or Mclean for this week…
Have Bont in the midfield, forward consists of Buddy, Gray, Sicily, Smith, Spargo and Henry..
Need the community's assistance, cheers

    pasta stRayner · 07/05/2018 at 17:47

    Missed the boat on Macrae now, trading in players above $600k is around their peak price and in my opinion asking for trouble. The boast has sailed, hope he has a stinker around the byes and trade him in then.

Raver_dave · 07/05/2018 at 16:43

Who are the favorite bubble boys this week? Looking to do a double downgrade this week. Current trade is:
Out: Finlayson & Holman
In: Spargo & Mutch

This will leave me a big bank account of $923,000 for some aggressive upgrades over the next couple of weeks.

My only concern is job security of these rookies, any input community?

    ToughBretts · 07/05/2018 at 17:01

    I wouldn't double downgrade with that much in the bank, it's too much money sitting there doing nothing.
    Downgrade Holman to Spargo, and make a full premo upgrade

      Raver_dave · 07/05/2018 at 18:35

      Changed my trade to:
      Finlayson to spargo and Stephenson to McLean

      Next week doedee becomes either hurley or yeo.

        ToughBretts · 07/05/2018 at 18:37

        Much smarter and safer

hedski · 07/05/2018 at 16:50

I'm not sure I can handle having Billings in my team any longer, probably can't afford to use a trade to go sideways but HE'S JUST SO SHITHOUSE.

    Mystic_Mac · 07/05/2018 at 17:10

    Jack Billings ruined my Sunday arvo. Don't think I can sit through a St Kilda game again.

    KSinny · 07/05/2018 at 17:19

    held him and put my faith in him for too long, Billings your OUT!!!!

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 18:23

    Whilst against all SC unwritten rules he's lost too much money to upgrade. Downgrade him & teach him a lesson. Reinvest the cash elsewhere. He's the 2018 Shaw

      hedski · 07/05/2018 at 19:04

      I can fling Siciflog fwd and get Hibbo in for chump change, reckon he's turned the corner, nice coulpa games coming up, would leave me $100k.
      Have Holman to Spargo locked in.

        Da_Boysh · 07/05/2018 at 20:22

        personally i like Holman as bye cover

          DavidC · 08/05/2018 at 07:43

          Yep, early bye rookies are gold. Hold em til after the byes.

    PeteB · 07/05/2018 at 20:18

    He’s averaging 74 so not a premo, so how can he still be considered a sideways trade. Should have got rid of him several weeks ago.

      hedski · 07/05/2018 at 20:56

      I had many many more pressing issues Pete, otherwise he would have been gone 3 weeks ago.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:22

    Fair chance he plays magoos this week

    Sooo happy I traded him to mclean early.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 20:56

    Wouldnt consider it sideways his scoring is pitiful considering his starting price. He's had plenty of chances and set to bleed out further.

Crowboy94 · 07/05/2018 at 17:28

Hey guys,

What POD forward and midfielder would people pick?

    BrownlowBoy · 07/05/2018 at 17:48

    Jelwood, Neale, Zorko, Treloar, Ed Curnow?

    How big are your spuds?

    Tom Phillips, Jack Martin

      Crowboy94 · 07/05/2018 at 17:58

      Current team is:

      Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Murray, Doedee, Naughton( Duman, Murphy)

      Dangerfield, Mitchell, Fyfe, MacRae, Merrett, Kelly, Finlayson( Brayshaw, Holman, Barry)

      Gawn, Nank

      McLean, Heeney, Sicily, Billings, Higgins, Henry( Fritsch, Guelfi

      Speedy_Cerviche · 07/05/2018 at 17:59

      I'll add JPK and Matt Crouch. Both good value and not in many teams.

    redherringfc · 07/05/2018 at 18:00

    Billings and Zorko.

    They’re both really cheap at the moment and hardly anyone, who knows what they’re doing, has either of them.

      Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 20:57

      Zorko was always going to come good proven scorer, not sure Billings can be classed as a proven premo though.

    Jono · 07/05/2018 at 19:48

    Maybe Mitch Robinson he is currently averaging 102!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:22

    Darling.
    Redden

Andy · 07/05/2018 at 17:34

Who averages more, Yeo or Sicily?

SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 17:36

Biggest Villain of the week is Michael Christian. Head over to Twitter and give the flog what he deserves. Absolute disgrace. Use some common sense you flog! Tackle was fine. Just a free kick.

@Chrissto_21 is where you can find him.

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 18:26

    I don't think abusing him on twitter will help. Hopefully common sense prevails

    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 18:48

    Maybe they just set that account up so those with slightly less than average intelligence have a place to vent and Christian never reads it unless someone draws his attention to something clever or amusing

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 18:52

      I'd hate to know the intelligence of people that can't even make an account on any given site. It's just an email and password to set up Tibor. Not hard mate.

        Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 18:58

        No champ I said clever or amusing, not abusing.

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 19:56

          Learn how to make an account. Oh, intelligence is a factor isn't it. My bad.

        Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 19:24

        Seriously 66 do you not see the irony in being someone who repeatedly calls others trolls being the person who started this conversation by directing others to use twitter to send abuse to an AFL official.

        It is a criminal offence to use a telecommunications device, that includes the internet generally and most certainly twitter to abuse or threaten people.

        You should be ok mate, they'll not be able to trace you will they? Oops surely you didn't register all your details then commit a criminal offence.

        Maybe the clever thing to do now would be to remove that post as quickly as possible. That would save the site administrators having to do it for you to protect your dumb arse

          Dildor · 07/05/2018 at 19:28

          Rekt

            SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 19:59

            Tibor pls don't put in a fake name to boost your rant. If you made an account you'd automatically get a like after you comment.

              Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 20:05

              I'm not actually concerned how many likes I get after a comment but that certainly explains the one like you get

                SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:07

                Ok Tibor. Or is your real name Dildor?

                Didn't see the 9 on my post?

                  Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:41

                  SHUT THE FUK UP C#NT

                    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:45

                    There you go 66 that's a fake Tibor, ta mate I can fight my own battles

                    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 21:49

                    So you can now hurl abuse at me and call it fake after you had a realisation that it wasn't the smartest?

                    Real nice coming from someone who started talking about intelligence. Knock it off mate!

          SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 19:53

          Hahaha. Never said I abused him you flog. I sent through his Twitter so people can do it for me. Nice rant though. Got much on? Didn't think so because you always react negatively to users on here.

          Be sure to call the police next time someone abuses you in reality. Grow some balls bitch

            Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 19:58

            Good luck you idiot if you've incited it dopey you've got a problem. It's not often used but it's a good law to restrict the behaviour of keyboard warriors like you. Make sure you bang in the last word hard man it's sure to impress everyone especially those who administer the site

              SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:03

              Now who's abusive? Get off your high horse hypocrite!

              Fake Tibor.

                Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:40

                66 Firstly I am not Dildor and I don't understand his comment anyway. I don't care whether you believe that or not. I think you have missed an important point mate. We banter on sites like this all the time, nobody really cares. People have arguments on phones and abuse each othe all the time, that is hardly a matter for the police. You have used this website to incite others to use twitter to on mass abuse an official from the AFL. If the AFL find out you've done this you will have a problem. If the AFL decide to go to the Police you may very seriously have a problem. Do the only smart thing you've done all day and remove it.

                  SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 21:52

                  How about you remove your abuse with that disgusting profanity toward me. Grow up.

                  How about you do the smartest thing you can do in your life and quit SC. You're irrelevant.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:25

    WC be mad not to challenge.

    If you get a week for that may as well just play touch footy

    If he slung him and his arms werre pinned fair enough but that was just a crunchimg tackle from the big eagle.

      Weatherman · 07/05/2018 at 20:38

      Grundy got two weeks du4ing SC finals last year instead of 1 which really cost me.
      Admire NitNat, don’t have him but challenge should do well?

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:28

    get a room hahahahahaha

pasta stRayner · 07/05/2018 at 17:46

Does Ronke have decent job security? Any Sydney fans about?

    nvol · 07/05/2018 at 19:14

    He will most likely play this coming week. Job security isn't the greatest but he is playing well so should be rewarded. He's also a Melbourne boy so they would probably give him a game at the MCG.

Steeeve · 07/05/2018 at 17:46

Need more defence rookies to stand up (could Matt Eagles string a few games together???). Only option at this stage is Appleby and I can't see him holding his spot. I already have Murphy and Mirra on the bench, can't afford a third non-playing defender.

    redherringfc · 07/05/2018 at 18:10

    I’m hoping Keeffe can hold his spot for a few weeks, but don’t expect too much. At least I can use his dpp with Sicily.

      SC_Sixty_6 · 07/05/2018 at 19:08

      When Lobb and Cameron are healthy, zero chance Keefe plays

    Phil · 07/05/2018 at 18:11

    Keefe?

      Ja191 · 07/05/2018 at 18:14

      don't see keefe holding his spot for more than 3 weeks

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 17:58

Anybody considering Angus Brayshaw? Tonned up on the weekend and is averaging 82 in his first 4 games back. Bargain price tag of $354K with MID/DEF swing. Thoughts?

    WithAllDueRespect · 07/05/2018 at 18:09

    Thinking the same for finlayson 👍

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 18:29

    Might be a concussion away from not playing again this season. Or ever again. He's not under-priced enough for that type of risk IMO

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 18:46

      Fair point Pieman. Might give that idea a miss. Cheers mate

      Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 20:59

      Sad but true, always liked him as a player.

    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 18:43

    Great to see him going well after such a difficult period. Tough as a $2 steak. It's a really awkward price especially to bring in now unless you think he can be top 10. I was absolutely going to start him this year but he wasn't in the side then. Maybe too late now. Only other concern I have is if he cops a heavy head knock he will have much more than one week off

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 18:47

      I agree Tibor, Pieman mentioned that as well. Scrap that idea!

        Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 21:47

        I've sat down had a beer and figure why not? He is in my team, not sure if he will stay but I'm not going for the overall prize as my rank is sh*t. TOPHAWK lets go balls deep, lets get it done son. Love the kid, can play.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2018 at 18:58

    If you think an average of 82 will be top 10 mids… or 20 for that matter. But I don't. There are better options; Heath Shaw is averaging 90 for 439k. Geary averaged 90 before this week for 400k. Tom Cole is averaging 84 for 238k.

    HumanBob · 07/05/2018 at 21:18

    He'll come in handy as an emergency tophawk and is a good swap for a rookie IMO. I swapped Holman to him to open the swing and provide quality bench cover on 2-lines and great looper in defence . If he crashes I'll have 400k+ to spend on a choice of def or mid.
    He may only be one concussion from retirement but every player is only one tackle from an acl

    Marty · 07/05/2018 at 23:24

    If you're after a cheap smoky Redden is averaging 111 the last three rounds

      b_sh3p · 08/05/2018 at 18:27

      High risk/reward but thinking about it. I could get him and zorko vs MacRae/rookie

StevoRivo · 07/05/2018 at 18:24

Well I was considering Finlayson & Garlett to Yep & Spargo.
Or even Holman & Finlayson to Macrae/Crouch & Spargo.
This NicNat news has thrown a spanner. Hope WC appeals.

TommyC99 · 07/05/2018 at 18:26

Hey guys, i usually dont post my team but really stuck what to do this week. Want to bring in Crouch but really can't see how.

Def: Laird, Howe, Mills, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Duman, Keeffe)
Mid: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Pendles, Cogs, Kelly, Findlayson (Dow, Garlett, Barry)
Ruc: Gawn, Nic Nat (English)
Fwd: Heeney, Sicily, Smith, Tracca, Billings, Fristch (Henry, Guelfi)

Any thoughts and opinions highly appreciated!

    SloanedogBillionaire · 07/05/2018 at 18:37

    Tracca down to Spargo?
    Then Cogs to Crouch?

      TommyC99 · 07/05/2018 at 18:39

      Oh i didnt say how much i have in the bank. I have 28k. Cogs is going quite nicely atm, so feel like i'd be wasting a trade there

        hedski · 07/05/2018 at 19:32

        Dow to Spargo, swing him fwd then BILLINGS to Crouch. Same can be applied to Tracca.

          TommyC99 · 07/05/2018 at 19:46

          Dow BE is only 27, still has money to make doesnt he? Other trade looks quite sound, im against trading "premos" but think it might just have to be done. Swapping one of those 2 to Crouch would mean i'd be pushing Findlayson to the bench.

            Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 21:00

            Bin billings or tracca, then finlayson to Crouch.

    Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2018 at 18:53

    Finlayson is far past his BE. Trade to Spargo.
    Use the money to upgrade another player of your choosing

Phil · 07/05/2018 at 18:43

Billings to McLean or Holman/Brayshaw to Crouch?
Anyone know Holman & Brayshaws breakeven?

SloanedogBillionaire · 07/05/2018 at 18:51

You can check players BE here http://www.footywire.com

Warblegarble · 07/05/2018 at 18:51

21 trades, $21,700 bank.

DEF – Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Doedee, Finlayson, Murray (Murphy, Keeffe)
MID – Fyfe, Macrae, Dangerfield, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, Kelly, Holman (Dow, Coffield, Barry)
RUC – Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)
FWD – Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Petracca, Fritsch, Giles-Langdon (Henry, Guelfi)

I want to start building up some cash now for upgrades, still plenty of rookies on the field (Doedee, FInlayson, Murray, Fritsch, ZGL). Certainly considering Holman -> Spargo straight away, but what other options exist?

Brock · 07/05/2018 at 18:51

Team is currently:

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Sicily, Howe, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)

MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, Oliver, Coniglio, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Brayhaw, Barry)

RUC: Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, Mclean, Mundy, Smith, Higgins, Henry (Fritsch, Guelfi)

24 trades left
100K in the bank
Currently ranked 45

For my first trade this week I will be downgrading Holman to Spargo to free up some cash. For my second trade I will be upgrading Finlayson to either Dangerfield or Crouch (Can't afford Macrae). Whichever one I don't get this round probably won't end up in my team this season unless injuries occur because for my last mid spot I am looking to get Macrae in for Kelly after he's had his bye.

In the next couple of weeks I'm going to be trying to get Hurley in and Franklin in when he returns from injury. Then I'll get Gray in after he's had his bye plus Yeo and Macrae during the bye rounds to finish my team. Also looking to upgrade Nankervis to either Ryder or Grundy during the byes. I want to try and be aggressive with my trades before and during the byes so I can have a full premo team before the byes end with the hope that I can get closer to the number 1 spot.

So to summariese all of this I pretty much just want to know if people think that Danger is going to be a must-have pick by season's end like he has been in past seasons.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 18:56

    Get danger when he is at his cheapest. Especially after the byes. He will go bang with a week off. Under done and abit sore atm.

      Brock · 07/05/2018 at 19:06

      I wanna try to get to full premo as fast as possible though so I don't have time to wait for Danger to be ready at the end of the byes. Its either I bring him in this week, next week or not at all. A solution could be bringing in Hurley this week so I can have another look at Danger before trying to bring him in next week.

        TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 19:21

        Definately could consider that. Danger deserves flexibility mate. He is the best player in the comp.

        SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:13

        Yeh I agree. Get full premo asap so give him a week maybe. He does get a 9 day break. Take that into consideration.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 19:10

    Nice ranking Brock! I agree with 66. Hold fire with Danger for now and get him in after the byes. It does not necessarily mean Crouch will not make your team as there are so many variables in play. Crouch might be a more attractive option than Macrea in 8 weeks time. Things change quickly. I always play for the "now" and see whats around the corner. Good luck for your push for the $50K. You are in the hunt bigtime.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:16

    I see you're in 'last minute rags' Brock. Nice work on the rank. My boy Wow is #29 so you guys giving it a shake!

    Holty01 · 07/05/2018 at 21:12

    Great rank Brock and all that with still 24 trades remaining. Obviously scoring is very important to you right now and value is great to help get you to full premo quicker. With that, id seriously consider JPK for the time being. Great value, far better scoring potential then ur current M8 and that extra 140k savings over Danger should help with that quick upgrade to get Hurley next round. Danger i think is a must at some point. Even if you dont see JPK as a keeper by seasons end, you could upgrade him in a month as he will be sitting around 550k which would be very close to Dangers price id imagine.
    Whatever you decide good luck to you.

Tyruddanaut · 07/05/2018 at 18:52

Choices, choices…..

This week I have to choose out of getting in a Def premium: Hurn or Howe
And cop a doughnut

Or get in an R3 rookie: Crossley or McInerny
And do three upgrades in the next two weeks

    BlueBaggerJosh · 07/05/2018 at 19:17

    Surely Eagles contend that

    ToughBretts · 08/05/2018 at 01:08

    Can't take a zero, and Crossley looks like the heir to Witts' throne. I'll be looking to get him in for season long ruck cover.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 18:53

Who to punt first out of these two flogs. Billings or Petracca? I am leaning Billings. Seems he is beyond redemption.

Considering trading Billings to Mutch or Ronke and then Finlayson to McLean via DPP. Then swing McLean forward to to take the place of Billings.

    Tibor · 07/05/2018 at 19:26

    Billings needs an afternoon at traccas house playing with the dogs

    Rocksta · 07/05/2018 at 19:27

    I have the same problem as you TH.
    I really don’t want to sideways trade, but I’m just so sick of those two f*ck**g up my score everyweek, as I’m sure are you.
    Not sure if I will pull the trigger, but if I do, it will be Tracca. He doesn’t look anywhere near it and definitely won’t get mid time as he isn’t fit enough.
    Billings might come good I reckon.

    PJ King · 07/05/2018 at 20:01

    I know Petracca is "not injured", but he is. Billings isn't injured, he just needs to overcome a seeming fear of failure.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:27

    Watch team sheets for billings omission this week.🙈

    Moosehead · 07/05/2018 at 20:47

    Unfortunately Petracca is slowish therefore no midtime for him. Someone mentioned Watts. Yes, good comparison because they promise so much?????
    Just think. Demons could have had Nit Nat. What a great Ruck combo with Gawn.

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/05/2018 at 19:28

After seeing how he goes this week I'm thinking of trading Finlayson to mason wood (will settle him in at F6) via Sicily swing. Will be a true test to see if he does well against tigers, any North fans know if he plays SC friendly role, if he's injury prone etc??

    Blueth · 07/05/2018 at 19:35

    huge balls

    meph · 07/05/2018 at 19:55

    Very injury prone but is a gun if his body is right.

    Finnius · 07/05/2018 at 20:00

    bloke averaged 65 last year and has played 25 games in the last 3 years. That is a serious hail mary which I wouldn't stake my whole season on. The risk far outweighs the potential reward, for best case scenario he averages 95 and everyone else jumps on at about 500k, with about 50x less risk.

    INPieman · 07/05/2018 at 20:10

    Mason Wood has played 1 game this season. Great score but does he have great JS? One poor game & he's gone. I know this from Brad Scott last year. 1% chance of that working out

      b_sh3p · 07/05/2018 at 20:26

      Waite will come back in but i think zurhaar will get the chop before Wood. Injury is def his biggest issue

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:44

    Got wood in my draft
    Finally got a gig!
    Can play hope he stays around awhile.

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:13

    He's got the game to suit SC but it would take massive nuts to bring him in. Should be a regular in the side if he stays fit, so much talent

    ToughBretts · 08/05/2018 at 01:09

    Has a real habit of taking games off – he will be in my starting side in 2021 for sure, but he's green as grass

Da_Boysh · 07/05/2018 at 19:42

Hi All,

ranked around 300 need some advice
I think I need to double downgrade this week and deciding who to move on.. the candidates I am looking at are Doedee and Finlayson into Ronke through Sicily swing and Appleby.. what do you think is it too early to move on Doedee.. i Have Naughton and Richards but I figure they will give me some decent bye cover in the harsher rounds.

Is Ronke or Appleby not the real deal and is their JS rubbish because I cannot afford a hole in Def or Fwd the way things have been playing out.

Thanks

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 20:20

    I wouldn't be too keen on Ronke mate, when the Sydney boys come back I don't see him staying.Spargo would be my choice for a rookie. Nice work on the rank.

      Da_Boysh · 07/05/2018 at 20:21

      thanks mate – already have Spargo took the plunge and got him after his first game XD

    Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 21:01

    What about Mutch?

      Da_Boysh · 07/05/2018 at 21:07

      might be the option if I dont go Ronke, I am after job security not really cash generation because I will need the cover once I burn my trades to get full premo

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:29

    nice rank da_boysh keep it up

Jack · 07/05/2018 at 19:52

Which one to cull first – Holman or Banfield?

    Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 21:02

    Banfield.

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 22:17

    Culled Banfield last week. Banfield.

mac_time · 07/05/2018 at 19:56

Hi all
Long time reader first time posting

I was away for first 3 weeks of season so missed out on early corrective trades.
Rank was at 45k but slowly worked up to 9k.

Laird Sicily McGovern Mills Doedee Murray ( Coffield Murphy )

Fyfe Danger Cripps Mitchell Coniglio Merrett T Kelly Holman ( Banfield Barry O'Conner )

Gawn Kruz ( English )

Heeney McLean Lambert Smith Petracca ZGL ( Fritsch Henry )

25 trades but only $6600 in bank.

I'm thinking double downgrade this week.
Holman/banfield or barry to spargo
Coffield/Murphy to appleby.

My question is am I being too stubborn hanging on to the likes of McG/Mills/Kruz and Petracca.
My thinking is give them until their byes and make a decision about them then.
Trades should not be a problem.

Any feedback welcome.

    PJ King · 07/05/2018 at 20:28

    I reckon Holman for Spargo. Spargo seems the only good option for rookies this week. Bit worried about the JS for Ronke.

    Upgrade Petracca and be happy you don't have Billings.

    Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 21:09

    Banfield is done, Tracca is gonna bleed and cost you points going on recent performances. Mills/mcgov can be dealt with later, kruz u gotta have faith.

    Could go Tracca to spargo and Banfield to Mutch if you prefer his JS chances, I like his chances of scoring better where he plays too.

Andy · 07/05/2018 at 20:15

Upgrading Finlayson to last midfield premier. Already have danger, Fyfe, Parker, Gibbs, Oliver, Cripps and marcher. Who to bring in, can’t afford McRae or Treloar?

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 20:32

    I presume "Marcher" is Tom Mitchell? You got to have him. If not, then ignore this post. Either Dusty or Matt Crouch for mine. Cheers mate.

    PJ King · 07/05/2018 at 20:33

    You already have Spargo?

    Whatyasmokin · 07/05/2018 at 21:03

    Titch, good price for his average and is going to have another big year by the looks.

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 23:21

    Dusty

CalebCripps922 · 07/05/2018 at 20:24

Upgrading Holman this week. Oliver or Crouch to bring in?

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 20:28

    Oliver for mine. Crouch has only just got back from that 4 week hammy spell on the sidelines. Perhaps hold off for a bit on him. I will get Crouch in 2-3 weeks if he can stay on the park.

      Holty01 · 07/05/2018 at 21:26

      Agreed Hawk. Reluctant to pick any Crows players at present until im confident no more hammys ate going to ping

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:51

    Im going crouch.
    As oliver has rd 13 bye will bring him in rd 14 to cover rd 14 bye for kelly.
    Also viney back this week may/may not impact him.
    Gawn/viney was the best 1-2 in the game.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:39

Righto lads sage like required.
Bringing in crouch. (Fullstop)
To do that options are:
Trade garlett or holman. Thinking garlett he is just about topped out holman higher ceiling can whack him on the bench trade at his bye.
But to who? (I have spargo)
Mutch or worpel in mids or ronke up fwd?
If a mid will flick spargo fwd F6.
If ronke – ronke, henry or Fritsch at F6 with spargo at M9?

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 21:02

    Who are you trading out after that to get Crouch Trigga?

    To your earlier question, worried about Worpel after his effort this week. Especially after trading in Mirra a few weeks ago and getting the chop. (After much better performances) Mutch is another one. Has not really set the world on fire, but might have OK JS. Ronke could be the next Mirra when Buddy and another few players come back into that side.

    If you really want Matty Crouch, (I want him too) and you had to chose one of those three rooks, its Ronke.

    That's the best I can come up with Trigga. Good luck!

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:51

    Yeah would probably go Ronke out of those. Mutch and Worpel didn't set the world on fire

Andre · 07/05/2018 at 20:43

Team is currently: need help!!!!

DEF: Laird, Simpson, Yeo, finalysion, Doedee, Murray (Naughton, Murphy)

MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, barry, Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (brodie, Banfield, coffield)

RUC: Gawn, Nic nat (Cameron)

FWD: Heeney, Mclean, petrecca , Smith, firstch, fogarty (crowden, ahern)

21 trades left
323K in the bank

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:47

    I'd be downgrading Banfield to Spargo and going Brodie up to a premium. Non scoring rookie up to a Matty Crouch or JPK is the way to go

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/05/2018 at 20:47

Holman to Oliver and Parker to Crouch

or

Holman to Oliver and Finlayson to Appleby

Im leaning toward option 2 at this point because Finlayson is nearing his peak and i cant see any DEF rookies on the bubble in the next few weeks, also if prices don't fluctuate too much then next week i should have enough to go Parker to Crouch and Doedee to Hurley/Simpson.

Noah · 07/05/2018 at 20:48

Should i upgrade t kelly to crouch, or get rid of finlayson and wait another week for crouch?

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:46

    If Kelly is your main trade target atm you're doing better than everyone else Noah! I would hold Kelly the bloke pumping out tons like they're going out of fashion

    b_sh3p · 08/05/2018 at 18:29

    Don't trade kelly

Tommo · 07/05/2018 at 20:51

This week I’m going Finlayson and Holman to Ronke and Spargo.
Then next week will be a double upgrade with $550k in the bank after these trades

    Doc · 07/05/2018 at 21:02

    Thinking the same mate. Let's hope that great minds think alike aye 😉

      Tommo · 07/05/2018 at 22:03

      👍👍 hope so

    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 22:05

    I'm a bit concerned about Ronke keeping his spot when Buddy gets back Tommo.

TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 20:51

One straight switch this week. Christian Petracca- OUT Toby McLean- IN. Damn that feels so good!!!!

That's another flog out of the way. Thank FFT….

Christensen out for Sicily last week. Let's hope this move will yield similar rewards.

Not interested in any rooks. Went early on Spargo last week. I will let Ronke slide (JS?) with Buddy and a few other big names due to return soon for the Swans.

Leaves me with 22 juicy trades.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 20:55

    Good trade hawk but cost u $100k.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 21:13

      I don't care Trigga. It's worth every cent IMO.

      In fact, after next week McLean will likely be worth $30K more and Petracca $30K less if their BE's are any indication. Net loss then hopefully only $40K . And plenty more points!!

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 21:21

        Just stirring hawk.
        Reckon that was one of my best trades-billings – mclean for $ change.

          TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 22:19

          All good mate. Better late than never as they say!

    Keenbutclueless · 07/05/2018 at 21:09

    Petracca out Crouch in. Feeling your joy!

    Had planned to be Kelly, but I think he’s better value than a Petracca. If I don’t trade Petracca now, it might get too hard later, and if I don’t bring Crouch in now, will get difficult.

    Kelly can sit at M8 until his round 14 bye. Got 3 other upgrades to do before then. So some chance to do that during the next few weeks and look at Mills and Kelly in Round 14.

      TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 22:25

      Go for it!

      I cant afford that trade right now. Huge fan of Matty Crouch and will be looking to get him when I can afford him!

      GUN

    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 22:32

    How about this for joy this week Toppa, Petracca and Christensen out together!…haha I'm happy as Larry.

Is Shannon Hurn a good POD?

    DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 22:23

    I would have said yes if comparing him to his counterpart Yeo but now with Shuey down I think Yeo is a must. He be getting all kinds of mid time 😉 Ya know mid time… ya know between the… hmmm

Kyle · 07/05/2018 at 21:24

Gonna look at 2 down this week then next week bring in crouch and dusty depending on his BE. Bang bang

Multi_ · 07/05/2018 at 21:37

With Daniher out for 4-6 weeks I would be cautious on bringing Hurley in, could be moved forward which would absolutely kill his scoring output

    Josh · 07/05/2018 at 21:54

    Very slim chance that happens, hooker is the more likely defender to go forward. Although, with hooker forward Hurleys output may drop as he could be used as more of a lock down defender rather then being free to roam the backline collecting possessions. Mckernan could also come in to bolster the tall forward stocks which would leave hooker in defence. Coming from a bombers supporter.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/05/2018 at 21:55

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/05/2018 at 22:14

    Good call multi!

    We have seen it with Danger and Dusty recently. Both guns have dropped cash and points as a result.

    I don't have Hurley yet, but I do have Guelfi.

    Hopefully the Guelf can come back into that Essendon side and make me more cash and work together with Hooker at the same time to cover Daniher.

      NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:44

      Agreed TH. Guelfi defs comes back in this week, surprised he got dropped and Essendon are putrid

Willymack1234 · 07/05/2018 at 22:15

Option 1. Tracca to Sicily
2. Brayshaw to Crouch
3. Finlayson to Sicily

Thoughts?

    Option 2

DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 22:19

Well Amons arms were not pinned in the tackle so no chicken wing and Nat actually never went 100% ontop of Amon when he hit the deck and what hit the deck first was Amons forearms but Nats way heavier than the average player so ya know calling bs if he gets a week for what is a players right to do in fair play

You know who else had no chicken wings….

                  Otherwise I'm going nic nat to Grundy! Checked the top 3 ranked overall and they have NIC NAT. Try get a leg up. Plus I see Grundy with Gawn as #1 and #2

                    DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 23:01

                    yeah it's very clear they are 1 and 2 and on current trend 20 pts per game is huge

                    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 23:02

                    Sinclair's also an option Dave, going good this year.

TommyC99 · 07/05/2018 at 22:30

Trade out Tracca or Billings?

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 22:31

    Both.

      TommyC99 · 07/05/2018 at 22:45

      I don’t have the luxury or the trades to do that. Planning on bringing in Crouch and Spargo and downgrading one of tracca or Billings to Spargo I feel is going backwards.

        Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 22:58

        In that case I'd say Billings Tommy, and trading him to Spargo is not necessarily going backwards, keeping billings could be going backwards. His 3 round average is 63.

        Rocksta · 07/05/2018 at 22:58

        I’ve just turned Tracca into Crouch, and Holman into Mutch ( on mid bench). Swung Spargo into fwd line, and have higgins on the mid bench.
        Looks alright…… Feels alright.
        I don’t like sideways trades but Tracca simply must go. Also, Crouch at $533K is just too hard to pass up.

    Ricardo · 08/05/2018 at 12:05

    Very high chance Billings will be dropped this week. That will probably answer your question.

NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:38

Need some help Community!

Ranked 2500 and scored 2230 last week with a few disappointing scores (Cogs, Parker, Zerrett WTF).

B – Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Doedee, Murray, Naughton (Richards, Mirra)
M – Fyfe, Cripps, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, Merrett, Parker, Kelly (Walters (INJ), Finlayson, Barry)
R – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
F – Heeney, Sicily, Smith, Christensen, Fritsch, Henry (Guelfi, Spargo)

23 trades and $143k in the bank

Options are either…

A – Double downgrade to build up the bank, thinking Finlayson and Christensen
B – Paint the fence with the above and get either McLean in up forward or Yeo in for Murray and Mutch in the mids
C – Hold

Any thoughts on trades or what to do hugely appreciated as always 🙂

NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 22:44

Does anyone think Finlayson has a bit more cash and points to go? The guy can seriously play and still managed a 60 odd despite the whole team getting pulverised in Geelong. Also has DPP which is very handy.

Should we be looking at culling Doedee and Murray before him?

    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 23:01

    I think Murray definitely before him, Finlayson won't lose much cash next week if he doesn't make his BE, and he could even turn it around and ton up.

      NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 23:17

      Thats what Im thinking mate

        Adam · 08/05/2018 at 05:48

        I’m also thinkn this hold and move Murray on

          Beezneez · 08/05/2018 at 14:07

          I'm loathe to move him cos he should have kicked a couple of goals last week. Having said that I need to trade him to get enough $$$'s for Crouch (have Naughton as back up). But there goes my loophole with Doedee Murray Finlayson and Naughton with Murphy. Have to trade for Appleby cos Cole, unfortunately, is out of reach.

    Lazza · 08/05/2018 at 19:33

    For what it is worth, my rookie trade “decision table” looks like this: In order of ‘must trade now”.
    3 criteria .. average vs BE, about to lose cash, and on-ground position v target trade (DPP influences the latter).
    Garlett
    Finlayson,
    Holman
    Stephenson
    Richards
    Murray

    The first 3 are ripe…. target premos who are about to increase in value = JSelwood, Neale, MCrouch and Macrae with Spargo the main rookie target.

DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 22:44

Ignoring My tree being able to walk away from Ruck2 spot. Will continue with progression to 22 premiums.

Doedee > Hurn
Banfield > Spargo

I've done 4 and gotta say, am happy with all of them.
Armitage ($310100) to Ellis Yoelman ($263900) the week before Armo got dropped. Round 3.
Billings ($493000) to Hogan ($437500) Round 4
Petracca ($403400) to Mclean ($524600) round 8.
Christensen ($350800) to Spargo ( $117300) round 8.

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/05/2018 at 22:53

    Just Zorko to Oliver in round 1 Russty! The rest have been injuries….. Kruezer, Crouch, Greene, Walters, Ryan, Venna and then upgrades.

      Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 23:04

      That one you did was a ripper 66, bummer about the injuries this year .

    DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 22:54

    Mine was Bonner to Sicily who then got his 2nd suspension hahaha

      Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 23:05

      I didn't even include Bonner Dave, cause I waited so long for that spud to come good, in the end it was just a common sense trade, Bonner out to a rookie.

        Phil · 08/05/2018 at 17:18

        I think Christensen is a common sense trade as well Russty.

          Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 23:58

          Yeah you're right Phil, it was easy to do and there was plenty of rage there also lol, I hate it when they start out well and then fade consistently into dishing up poxy rookie scores.

    PJ King · 08/05/2018 at 20:34

    Hibbo to Simpson Rd 3

    JohnDJ59 · 08/05/2018 at 22:04

    Three for me. Round 4, Billings ( 493,000 ) to Henry ( 123,900 ) Round 6, Hibberd ( 455,700 ) to Hurley ( 538,600 ) Round 8, Petracca (403,400 ) to Spargo ( 117,300 ). At the moment trading Hibbo is the one I regret.

      Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 23:53

      I think the Hibbo one was actually good John, Hurley is a must have IMO, and Hibbo could revert back to a spud again anytime, plus he has a history of leg injuries.

Brett · 07/05/2018 at 23:08

Not seeing any love for Jesse Hogan. 445k averaging 98.6 with a 36 in there.. thoughts on his potential output for the rest of the season?

    DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 23:13

    would be shocked if he keeps that avg up tbh but none the less he has the abilty to shock us all like he has so far.
    Same said for Brown and Darling

    Edit if you don't have any other key fwds in there he is the one I would and wish I had. I have Franklin instead haha

      Brett · 07/05/2018 at 23:24

      With a 95 average being good enough as our f6 and a more attractive price than others around the mark could be a nice upgrade or solution for billings

        DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 23:26

        1000%

    Russty_ · 07/05/2018 at 23:29

    I have love for him, brought him in for Billings in round 4 when he was still worth something.

NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 23:16

Does anyone think Finlayson has a bit more cash and points to go? The guy can seriously play and still managed a 60 odd despite the whole team getting pulverised in Geelong. Also has DPP which is very handy.

    NoLanguage · 07/05/2018 at 23:16

    Sorry accidentally posted this twice!

      DavidSA · 07/05/2018 at 23:18

      I have read a few here who are showing him faith. It's down to team structure and who you want/afford to bring in

    DavidC · 08/05/2018 at 07:34

    Dpp not so handy as there is no one to swap him with.

      NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT · 08/05/2018 at 14:54

      can still use him to get a mid in I would keep him in front of DOO or MURRAY

anthdepa · 08/05/2018 at 10:15

Anyone know whats the go with Kelly? getting impatient with the giants now.

    Lazza · 08/05/2018 at 19:40

    They are saying another week… but it is a groin issue .. which are pricks of things to get right within a season..

    FearTheBeard · 08/05/2018 at 20:22

    Trade him for Rockliff his injures are cleared now and there saying at that price he will be scoring 100 every week good pick i got him this week for Banfield

Errol · 08/05/2018 at 10:20

Thoughts on this trade I have 226.5 k with 20 trades left
Bont out for Macrae being a Bulldogs supporter it looks like Bonts hip will be a bad injury for him.
Finlayson or Doode out for Shannon Hurn

Def Laird Simpson Sicily
Doode Finlayson Murray. (Richards O'Connor)

Mid Mitchell Martin Fyfe Bont
Neale Coniglio Holman Dow. (Banfield Coefild LDU

Rucks Gawn Jacobs (De. Knowing)

Fwd Gray Heeney Stephenson Rayner Fritch Ronke. (Growers Guelifi)

    IN Pieman · 08/05/2018 at 20:23

    Just Quit Supercoach mate you suck

FearTheBeard · 08/05/2018 at 10:51

Sicily, Yeo or Simpson?

    blakeyboi · 08/05/2018 at 11:53

    sicil

    BadgerHoney7 · 08/05/2018 at 12:22

    sis

Tom · 08/05/2018 at 11:19

Any updates on when Toby Greene is playing?

    Lazza · 08/05/2018 at 19:37

    TBC = months rather than weeks.. he wasn’t at full fitness to start, so will go backwards for the next 4 weeks… then another 4 weeks to get some level of fitness…

blakeyboi · 08/05/2018 at 11:56

A morgan – spargo via cof
petracca – ronke

gives me 450k to get 2 premiums next week

or
A morgan – spargo via cof
petracca – a premium forward or mid

thoughts
what premiums should i get this week or next week i have T Mich Dusty Fyfe Cripps S coniglio Z merrett T kelly

BadgerHoney7 · 08/05/2018 at 12:10

Thoughts of these trades – Murray down to Appleby and Holman down to Mutch.

This allows me to go Fritsch up to Gray and Christensen to McLean next week

And the week after Doedee up to Yeo and Finlayson up to Hurley/Simspon

This will then leave my team as

Laird, Yeo, Simpson/Hurley, Sicily, Heath Shaw, Appleby – Duman, Murphy

Danger, Dusty, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Merrett, JOM, Kelly – Spargo, Mutch, Barry

Gawn, NicNat – Olango

Heeney, Walters, Dev Smith, McLean, Robbie Gray, Billings – Guelfi, Henry

    BadgerHoney7 · 08/05/2018 at 12:21

    This is all down to me believing Appleby has better job security than Keeffe?????

IB35 · 08/05/2018 at 12:28

Any suggestions on changes to make.

22 trades and $726,500 left in the bank

Team
backs: laird, sicily, hibberd, Ryan, Doedee, Murray. (Mirra, Stoddart)
mids:fyfe, danger, mitchell, martin, kennedy, omeara, T Kelly, Spargo. (Banfield, brayshaw, brodie)
rucks: gawn, nank. (king)
forwards:dev smith, petracca, billings, stephenson, higgins, guelfi. (garlett, jiath)

thinking of waiting for jpk and spargo to jump in price and pick up zorko and cripps who are in a dip. Also might trade out ryan for cole.

    IB35 · 08/05/2018 at 12:30

    also thinking of trading out petracca to franklin

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 13:06

    Solid enough side IB, Hibberd and kennedy coming good now so just your fwd line needs a bit of work in the de-spudding department, maybe Petracca and Billings out for Heeney and Mclean, or Hogan?

      NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT · 08/05/2018 at 13:23

      Your joking mate get rid of Billings Where would the saints be without him . PROBABLY A HELL OF A LOT BETTER .. Sorry RUSSTY you guys are coping a lot mate IT dates back to BUTTERS Look at Dixon Whats wrong with getting the guy in your name One of the most accurate kicks ever LOCKETT it will change for the better though Russty Cheers did you get MacRAE?

        Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 14:22

        Hey Neil, yeah Ben Dixon, what a great forward line kicking Coach, they should sack him and sue him for any monies paid out lol, yeah it'd be great to have Plugger as our kicking coach, we might actually get more Goals than points in a game!…Nah mate didn't get macrae, too expensive and I wanted Petracca and Christensen gone…in for Mclean and spargo, spargo's a little ripper mate.

          NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT · 08/05/2018 at 14:49

          Two great trades Russty for two that need . to go.. Spargo could be something special. Melbourne wanted NAUGHTON with their first pick 29 but he went early SPARGO was next Looks and plays like BOOMER HARVEY Given no. 9 NEITZ OLD NO. so they loved him early. We lack that nippy type and he fits the bill

      IB35 · 08/05/2018 at 14:06

      I only just traded kennedy in as he was very cheap. Planning on letting him rise and then trade him in for cripps who is dipping. I will also wait for spargo to rise and then trade. then use the money to upgrade petracca and billings (if he doesnt come good, and potentially smith.

NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT · 08/05/2018 at 13:13

MacRae is a must have in my opinion Whether to win leagues or rank.I have had him for the past two years and now he is in by 1 k Phew. MURRAY and WALTERS for MACCA and COLE welcome to DEMONS DELIGHT boys 4 possibly 5 left

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 14:24

    Nice one Neil..onwards and upwards mate.

Jam · 08/05/2018 at 14:35

Is cognilio to macrae a bad move? Cogs was a step up piece, he will lose coin this week, while macrae looks more must have than danger

    Whatyasmokin · 09/05/2018 at 00:27

    Just remember macrae looks like that in this moment, not saying he's going to flop but not sure on chasing him yet myself. Consider JPK. Personally holding cogs he's been great value.

      Russty_ · 09/05/2018 at 00:55

      My season would be looking a lot better if I'd started with Cogs over Whitfield, I'd probably stick with him awhile longer if I had the sense to start with him.

Adam · 08/05/2018 at 14:42

Looking to upgrade Mr Murray
Thinking one of Hurn or Webster
Thoughts guys ?

Jai · 08/05/2018 at 15:18

Thoughts community
Spargo in done
Sicily in for petracca or
M crouch or Macrae in for j Kelly?

    Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:58

    macrae for shizzle

      Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 18:25

      Kelly not playing again so yeah..Macrae..otherwise I would've said, Petracca out for Siciflog.

Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:35

Hi my name is Rabbits16 and i have a problem. 18 trades left had a terrible year. Ranked 12,767. 5 premos left until full premo. Should i be worried?

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 18:26

    Your name is Rabbits and you are a tradeaholic lol…probably be worried about running out of trades mate, but if you trade wisely and do some holding off also, you could have your cake and eat it too. ( Improve and end up full premo)

Rabbits16 · 08/05/2018 at 15:40

Do i offload Finlayson first or the disastrous Petracca? Finlayson has a higher average but petracca can play just being a slow kernt this yr

    Jai · 08/05/2018 at 16:00

    I’m thinking petracca I have him too and might go this week instead of me getting Macrae

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 18:24

    I think you'll feel better if you get rid of Petracca Rabbits, doesn't seem to be improving from his last two year's averages in the 70's, I thought he was gonna breakout this year but was wrong, he's still not ready for the next level yet, needs to build his tank more.
    I also think Finlayson can bounce back from a couple of lowish scores.

yaboyazza · 08/05/2018 at 18:16

Hey everyone, faced with a dilemma this week. Here are the two options:

1. Finlayson & Banfield out for Hurn (Interesting Pod) & Spargo
2. Petracca & Finlayson out for Hurn & Spargo (And an extra 160k)

To hold or not to hold (Petracca), that is the question. Thought?

    Whatyasmokin · 09/05/2018 at 00:24

    Nah not really worth holding unless youve already burned trades and/or have a rubbish rank anyway.

    That saying…….both those rookies require culling to get the peak profit out of them.

NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT · 08/05/2018 at 19:54

Is it worth considering TOM McDONALD. DPP ( DEF and FWD ) 86 both games and J S excellent Plays in a great team kicks goals and runs all day. An average of 90 would nearly do for F/D 7 CHEERS NDD

    Tiger · 08/05/2018 at 20:38

    I like him . Would have had him from the start if he wasn’t out injured

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 22:49

    You know you want to Neil!…he did average 95 one year, could get back to that or better.

    Whatyasmokin · 09/05/2018 at 00:22

    Agree with all…………..except great team? Who told you that?

    His scoring should improve when he plays tougher teams too assuming he plays a defensive role, Also his TOG is low due to coming back from injury so I like the pick especially with the swing.

    Do you have sicily? You never know when u might need someone to replace him and having tmac at the opposite end could enable a nice escape from donut plan.

    Jokes Neil I actually like Melbourne and rate a lot of their players highly (Reason I started with Oliver in 2017 and Hogan 2018) cheers just wanted to wind u up for a moment haha.

MEK · 08/05/2018 at 20:29

ShOULD I HOLD KELLY OR TRADE HIM

    Josh · 08/05/2018 at 20:35

    You've held him this long, might as well wait one more week. Will become somewhat of a POD.

      Josh · 08/05/2018 at 20:36

      Assuming your talking about Josh Kelly, not Tim

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 23:56

    Hi MEK, I would've traded him as soon as I knew it was a groin, but you didn't so may as well hold now..could be back next week hopefully for owners.

Harv · 08/05/2018 at 20:37

Did nicnat appeal?! Does anyone know

    Ahmad rubas · 08/05/2018 at 20:37

    yeah he appealed decision tomorrow

    Russty_ · 08/05/2018 at 23:55

    Not until Wednesday for some insane reason Harv, not sure why it takes 3 days to decide something like that, think they just wanna milk it and keep us all in suspense. I hope he gets off.

      WithAllDueRespect · 09/05/2018 at 09:22

      His QC was unavailable Tuesday night so they allowed and adjournment.

Redpill5 · 09/05/2018 at 09:09

Titch or jelwood? I’m thinking titch. Won’t get him cheaper. Thoughts?

blakey · 09/05/2018 at 09:18

A morgan – spargo via cof
petracca – ronke

inNout · 11/05/2018 at 00:06

Billings has been named in the guts. Keep or trade ? Was his 133 at the start of the season a fluke ?

Need your collective wisdom community. Thanks.
