PODCAST: SEND THEM TO THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE

Published by Lekdog & Patch on

It’s rookie culling time!

It’s that time of year! Where the beautiful, wonderful cows come to the chopping block after weeks of fattening on the wide open spaces of our sides and WHAM – you take the head clean off.

Loveable rogues Lekdog and Patch discuss which rookies to cull and which to bring in (hint, it’s Charlie Spargo) as well as shout at each other for a bit, because it’s what we do.

They also explore some trade in options and have in-depth discussions over some of our terrible selections, such as Jack BLOODY Billings and Luke Parker.

Shout-out to Inner Sanctum members Big Carlos (ranked at 297) andΒ Damo (at 565) who are pushing it towards the pointy end along Patch, who has now peaked at 198 and will begin his slow slide backwards this week.

Shout out your rank in the comments (if you’re proud of it or not, we all love each other no matter if we’re ranked 40,000th or 4th)

Pour yourself a cuppa, settle down on the couch and pull on a blanket as Lek and Patch guide you through the week in Supercoach, with thanks to Fantasy Insider.

Who are you culling this week?

Ahmad rubas

i know this probably isnt a major factor but would you rather player with 85sc avg and 65 af avg or 85sc avg and 105af avg. on one hand the player with the higher af avg needs to work on contested touches and de etc meanwhile the player with lower af avg probably has to work on getting the ball more. just wanted to get the communties thoughts on this as im struggling on who to get rid of out of doedee and murray if i decide on bringing sicily in

Russty_

AFL Fantasy is a bit of a joke Ahmad…unlimited trades, scoring is based on touching the ball, rather than what they do with it. Could kick it out on the full and get a stat for a kick. Could handball directly to the opposition and get a stat for a handball.
It's very primitive.

Tyruddanaut

But they also get a stat for free against on out on the full. Apart from that I agree

Valens_FC

Tend to agree with 66, but it's worth thinking about which stats positively impact SC scoring. Contested possessions, clearances, intercept marks, effective kicks, high kick to handball ratio and tackles are good stats to focus on. Players whose games are built around one or more of those stats tend to be the best scorers in SC. Especially with rookies, if you get a sense they are good at contested ball or tackling, that is a great indicator that they will find a way to get themselves into games and generate good cash for you.

Ahmad rubas

ok so contested ball clearances intercept marking tackles effective kicks and high kick to handball ratio are good stats for sc thanks for the response this will hopefully help in deciding who to cull from finlayson murray and doedee if any

Sc_Wow

Just look at there BE for that decision. They all have pretty similar ceilings and floors

Ahmad rubas

Based on breakeven finlayson would be first to traded out but I'm leaning towards keeping him and trading Murray. Looking at the stats defintely trading banfield before Holman as holman is an elite tackler it seems

HumanBob

If its only a matter of few points difference in the b.e Ahmad I suggest that you trade the one with the lowest average first.
You have all 3 on the field and want to score as many points as possible.
Supercoach Gold says that Murray, Finlayson, Doedee will vary in price after this round by a range of -3k to +8k all based on predicted scores 79-81.
I have the same 3-players and will be trading Murray because finlaysons DPP is very valuable during the byes

Russty_

Humanbob!…you've become a real boy haha, Like the outfit mate, I also turfed Murray before Finlayson, reckon he'll bounce back too.

HumanBob

0101010101010100101010101010101010101111100111001010101010101010

Russty_

Taking a break from Westworld mate?..haha

HumanBob

RedDwarf Kryten

NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT

Definitely Murray first mainly due to dpp but his average is also a bit lower Close call Doodee and Finlaysen for me

SC_Sixty6

Nice Patch good work. #198 solid, Macrae has been your master stroke for starting him.

Currently #762
If NIC NAT gets rubbed out for that tackle it looks like the game is dead.

Patch

Cheers mate! You've done very well to get yourself to 762 considering the rough run you had to start the year!

Tyruddanaut

You don’t have to be worried with that rank. You can always get a cheap R3

Da_Boysh

I remember how much grief everyone gave Patch on the team reveal. I bet they are eating their words

Blaknight

So I need to get Macrea in this week or hell become to pricey. That's the easy part. Unfortunately I need to trade T.Kelly this week to do so if I am also to get Spargo.

Ultimately I'd prefer not to go Kelly but I am 3k short to make Finlayson/Christensen for Macrea/Spargo work. Question is; is it worth trading Kelly out now for Macrea or take the gamble hoping Macrea does increase the projected amount.

Unfortunately I don't have any Mid/Back DPP to enable me to trade Finlayson and Doedee which would give me the cash to do it.

Lekdog

I wouldn't be trading Kelly. Maybe target a different premo this week

Holty01

Agreed

Holty01

Can you see a win coming soon for our Blue Boys Lek?

Lekdog

This week

Holty01

Lets hope. Im actually finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Got some good young players coming through. Cant fault their efforts but their skill level is what lets them down. Hope they can pick up a key forward and back in the next year to help the youth. Lynch and Mcgovern would be a dream

Lekdog

They would be ideal players to get into the team, not sure on the likelihood of it happening though.
I've been a believer of this rebuild since Bolts came in, never agreed with some of the decisions made since Ratten left (not that I think he would've won us a flag or anything). I've watched enough American sports to know that getting young talent is the key, not just one pick but a range of young guys. I'm on board…

and Essendon aren't very goodl

Holty01

Yeah terrible decision to get rid of Ratten. They were a kick away from a Preliminary Final and they got rid of him. Bolts has been fantastic for the club. I just hope the fans stay patient because i can see something good happening in a few years

NFI

If they didn't get rid of Ratten, Eddie Betts would still be there.
As a Crows fan I'm glad they but believe he (Ratten) was well worth another 2 to 3 year term.

Russty_

Reckon Kelly's a legit keeper…best rookie this year by far.

pod

If u have Sicily you can sub him from the forwards trading doodle then switching a fed from mid to for then trade doodee for McRae

Blaknight

3k short…

NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT

Averages over a ton so it's going to be hard to see a better M8 Keeper for me but so was OTTEN last year.

Russty_

Agree Neil, he should be our last upgrade of the season only if his performance starts dropping off, but he looks like a settled in permanent part of the Cat's Midfield now, and has embraced it.

Tyruddanaut

Don’t chase points with Macrae. He’s going to touch down sometime and will be receiving more tags.

Valens_FC

Agree with the other comments, now is not the time to bring Jack in. After Brisbane this week, the fixtures get tougher for the Dogs and whilst I wouldn't expect him to suddenly score badly he probably will come back to the field a bit.

Russty_

Agree Valens, he only needs a few lower scores to end up like Dusty and Mitchell are priced now. Then it's pounce time.

Ken

Should I get Matt crouch or go for Macrae?

Patch

On weight of evidence, probably Macrae.

Tyruddanaut

Matt Crouch. Macrae is farrrrrrrrrrrrrrr too expensive now. You missed the boat

Sc_Wow

I’M RANKED 29th

Patch

You ripper! You double downgrading this week or painting the fence to maintain rank?

Sc_Wow

Cheers
1 up 1 down going aggressive

Sc_Wow

Congrats on your ranking too

Russty_

Braggy Mc-bragface πŸ™‚

Sc_Wow

That’s me πŸ˜‰

SC_Sixty_6

Cool story bro

Valens_FC

Loving your work Wow……. one thing to come in and make an impact in the comments, but the story is only getting better each week with the ranking. Could go down as one of the great JR community tales if you take home the $50k!

Russty_

That was funny the other day when that hater was accusing you of not revealing your team name after you told him you were ranked 29th, it's not too hard to figure out if you go to the rankings and scroll down a bit..there you are haha

Patch

Billings owners: are you trading or holding?

Wood

Burning an effigy of the prick first.
I'll decide soon after that.

Russty_

Take the effigy out to the bush and shoot a couple of dozen magazines into it first Wood.

Wood

With pleasure

Browncow

Think he has to go if you have the trades (I have bigger issues). If $150k is your minimum threshold for a cashcow then Billings is on the verge of becoming a reverse cow.

Corey

Holding

North

Lost to much to trade. Hold and how for now

Marty

He will be my last trade

Brady

Traded to Mclean

Russty_

I'm trading him out for Hogan, in round 4 πŸ™‚

WTFoxtrot_58

7 weeks of pain is too much..it does feel good.
Watched my first Saint game Sunday (TV) and his confidence is shot. Hope he gets it back but he has now joined Zorko, M Crouch, J Kelly on my retired bench this season. The pain…..

PJ King

First I'm waiting for teams to see just how much damage I've got to contend with this week, but if all is okay, I'm seriously thinking of upgrading Billings to McLean.

frigate

Trading…Reverse Trade…Holding…Trading…Reverse Trade…Holding

Repeat * 1m

At the moment Holding is winning, just because most forwards are shizen and I have Petracca and Josh Kelly…

decision time

Stirlsy

Rank 876 …Plan on going dbl down this week…. NicNat the worry, but from what iv seen there going to APPEAL it Simmo more or less said it on news and only one arm pinned from a still shot iv seen so it should get thrown out.

Russty_

Good effort with the rank Stirlsy.

Tyruddanaut

I might keep Nic Nats doughnut to protest. Mainly because I’m low on trades though

Holty01

6331 for me. Forgetting to put Stef Martin on field 2 weeks ago has cost a bit as would be sitting 3600. Slowly moving up the ranks after being 28300 after 4 rounds. Nice work as well Patch on your rank. Keep it up mate

Russty_

Hey, Lek, Patch, any chance of turning up the volume a bit?…I like it loud and didn't seem to have an option to do that, cheers.

Lekdog

Don't think the levels have changed, maybe your speakers are quiet?

KSinny

its fine for me

Russty_

Maybe I'm just going deaf lol

HumanBob

Hmm maybe if you didn't have your head up your a… πŸ™‚

HumanBob

Not genuine but I couldn't pass on the opportunity

Russty_

Fair call :), I wish I was that flexible, then I might be able to hit my Golfball further .

Dave

Downgrading one of my back rookies to Spargo via Sicily DPP.

Who to trade out tho out of Finlayson (86 BE, but Def/Mid) and Murray (63 BE)?

NoLanguage

Murray

Corey

Finlayson

seen_burns

Backing Finlayson this week, and trading Murray

BBB

finlayson may be playing forward, if murray can pick up his DE he will rise more

Lazza

Finlayson is ripe.. Murray in next 2 weeks..

redherringfc

I needed to trade 2 out of Doedee, Murray and Finlayson and decided that Murray was the one to keep.

Looking at BE’s over the next 2 or 3 weeks, Murray has the most money to make out of those 3.

Having said that, I’ve made some horrendous decisions this year and this could be another one.

smart as s

First question this season, who to upgrade last, finlayson, doedee or murray?

Tyruddanaut

Finlayson now. Probably Doedee next but it depends on next weeks scores

Corey

Doedee last

NoLanguage

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 πŸ™‚

Tyruddanaut

Finlayson to Spargo would be a must. But….
Just paint the fence, or alternatively, just go one up and wait.
I would do Christensen to Ronke and Finlayson to a premium

Danny

Sell Finlayson, swing Spargo into the Mids and grab McLean?

Nate

174th and rising!!! Oliver will become the newest addition to the Canibals.

Goodbye Fin.

Nic Nat gets a week for that tackle and 15 blokes will be getting suspended every games. Absolute rubbish.

AlbertonOval

174th is pretty damn good, well done and keep going. Agree re Nic Nat, this ain't the game I grew up with anymore

Cpt

Cpt Pugwash 2350 pts:
Bont a late out. 13 points missed on the Fwd bench. Changed C from Fyfe to Gawn last minute. But I’ll take 254 evey week. Tossed coin for Macrae or Cripps. Cripps came in. Stupid Coin. SC Ranked #1 (cough_bs). Real rank 2040 and doing a little sneaky sneak upwards.

Corey

24 Trades Left
Banfield to Spargo
Finlayson to Sicily
Good Moves?

ATeam12345

seems to be the common theme this round.
I'm thinking Yeo purely on the fact Shuey is out for a while and less likely to get rubbed out

Sc_Wow

If you did it last week it would of been. Now it’s an ok move, your 50k and 144 points behind

Corey

So not bother, and just do the downgrade instead?

Simmo

Not doing it this week may well mean you will be another 50k and 100+ points down.
Pull the trigger, good trades.

Corey

Cool Thankyou

Noah

Im doing the same thing.

StevoRivo

Conundrums everywhere. Some help please.
Ranked 2400 and battling to hold ground. 24 trades & $140k..

1. NicNat out – do I cop the donut?
2. Have Zerrett M7, Kelly M8. Too late for Macrae?
3. Finlayson & Garlett to Spargo & Yeo?
4. Petracca & Garlett to McLean & Spargo?
5. Finlayson & Holman to Crouch & ?

Any suggestions appreciated.

pod

3

StevoRivo

Like this move pod, as Yeo is a top 6 and provides balance with the 3 x rook defenders on field. However, he may not bring the mid points that Crouch or Macrae can. Once again, it’s a line ball call.

The Ranger

Crouch and Spargo would be my choice if you can make it happen.

StevoRivo

Thanks Ranger! Can also do Macrae & Spargo with cheeky dpp swings, but Crouch is good value…

The Ranger

…and value is the name of the game Stevo.

StevoRivo

True Ranger! Bank the $100k difference in getting Crouch and go again?

Ja191

nic nat should be fine. West coast will dispute it and he will be cleared

Steeeve

Holding for now but man Goldstein has been poor again this year. Anyone else still got him?

Ahmad rubas

Yeah I still have him most likely going to hold until his bye and trade

Steeeve

Let's hope kruezer spuds up again then comes good just in time for a straight swap.
Be handy if Paddy Ryder could do the same and pick him up after his early bye too.

Ahmad rubas

yeah im looking at kreuzer too but more as a carlton fan i should really move to stef grundy or nic nat but will probably end up with kreuzer

JohnDJ59

Never been in my team, was over hyped when he was good, now he's no good. Had Gawn and Nank since the start this year.

Steeeve

Not sure he was overhyped the year he was top overall scorer.

JohnDJ59

I just remember a few years back, everyone saying, you have to have Goldy, but he was way over priced and dropped around 200k, I went with Maxy who was a lot cheaper and just as good.

oliverfisher

Does anyone know if Appleby has much job security? I'm thinking of downgrading Finlayson to Appleby and then upgrading Garlett to Sicily or Hogan. I could also look at downgrading Garlett and upgrading Finlayson, but I tend to lose more points up forward as I have Langdon on field. I have Murray on the bench down back who I can put on the field.

The Ranger

He's def not in the best 22. Maynard and Langdon will come straight back in when they're fit.

INPieman

I don't think Appleby's JS is great. Still got a few blokes to come back & he's a likely candidate to make way. But he's been surprisingly good

KingWinter7

Finlayson to Hurley, Simpson or Yeo?
Aim is to finish with all of them but who should I get this week…

Willymack1234

Yeo

The Ranger

Hurley and Simpson will likely both be cheaper next week

Craig

Depends how many Round 12 bye players you have. Simpson and Yeo both in that category.

judd0

Yeo

Sc_Wow

Yeo

Yeo

Russty_

Yo!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Patch inside top 200 noice. πŸ‘
Ive had my best start for a few years not as good as you but sitting just the other side of 500.
Considering i had Kruez, kelly, ryan and walters to deal with plus copped their injury score will take that any day of the week and twice on Sunday! πŸ˜‰

INPieman

Well done Trig. Great start

judd0

Well done Trigga, I feel like a winge so here's my list Ryder, Ryan (traded him in the week it happened), Petracca, Greene, Walters.

Traded out McGrath (Over it) last week who scored a 102. Have Merrett still πŸ™

However unlike you I am no where near the top so well played, I only have myself to blame English is my bloody R2!!!

JOHN DWYER

English is mine as well.. getting kruiser from the star was a horrible choice.

KSinny

Thought son Billings out for Mclean and Petracca out for Hibbered via dpp?

Gav

I've had McLean most of the season now. He keeps delivering. Not sold on Hibberd yet but he is cheap.

Tim

Billings out for Mclean is a good choice
I don't think hibberd is a great choice, sicily would be better if you don't have him already

KSinny

had sicily from the start

Tom

Any updates on when Toby Greene is playing?

Lekdog

Not that we've heard

ETFA

Any thoughts on Hibberd price has bottomed out and the role he played on weekend was back to what he did last year. Can go single trade Finlayson to Hibberd, Worthwhile???

Lekdog

I don't mind it, would prefer a Simpson or Yeo but understand the value. I have Hibbs and I know patch is looking at him for next week. if you think his form has turned, jump on him

Gav

When do you pull the trigger on Dusty and Danger? Looks like Danger could bottom out first. I want him, just need to find the right time for both of them.

Lekdog

Really tough to say, neither this week is the best I got for ya

Gav

Cheers Lek. Love your work.

johnno2908

NicNat going to the tribunal to fight his suspension. Let us pray.
Source: http://m.afl.com.au/news/2018-05-08/west-coast-to

INPieman

Let's pass the hat around & get the funds for OJ's lawyer to get him off

Derek

as a Lycett owner i'm hoping for a week off for NicNat (he needs a rest anyway)

but as an AFL fan, he can't get a week for that!

ToughBretts

He's dead, but I like your thinking

Russty_

And we don't find out until Wednesday!….why the FK can't they do it quicker than that?

Lazza

Nah. I don't have him so hope they give him an extra week … πŸ™‚

Steve

Went English to Olango & Parker to Macrae thoughts!

Lekdog

I don't love it, reckon english is there to score in an emergency. Olango isn't going to play plus he just had surgery. Parker to Macrae is good if you think parker is cooked and you have all the good rookies on the bubble this week and no other problems

Connor

The time isn't for luxury trades – i suggest you look at upgrading rookies before a potential premium such as Parker

BadgerHoney7

keep olango – usually plays late sundays

HumanBob

Why not English to crossley?
He might come in handy during the byes if still playing

DavidC

Won't be playing after the byes. Lynch will be back then, May is back this week, Wright is building fitness in the magoos.

rogan

I haven’t gone there yet but I reckon downgrade a fwd bench to a cheap ruck/fwd so you can still use English… I reckon he may not go up in price but a decent cover.

Redpill5

That’s a stinker mate. Don’t go wasting a trade to bring in a non playing player now!!! Parker to macrae is a no brainer if you can afford it.

TheGreatBozza

Ranked 2147 – down 617 on last week. Kicking myself for not jumping on Macrae last week, opted to miss on Duman/Cole and only trade Murray > Howe (would've needed to paint the fence to grab Macrae). I'll have to wait until Macrae HOPEFULLY comes down.

Any thoughts for this week?

B – Laird, Howe, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson, Naughton (Richards, Murphy)
M – Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, Pendlebury Coniglio, Kelly, Holman (Walters, Banfield, Garlett)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
F – McLean, Sicily, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Higgins (English, Giles-Langdon)

Spargo in is a definite in. I can go Finlayson > Spargo via DPP, Banfield > Macrae (gun) or Crouch (value)

Other option would be doulbe downgrade of Richards & Banfield

StevoRivo

Good ranking still Bozza, a little ahead of mine. I’m considering similar same trades to get Spargo & Macrae in. Do you have the cash to keep Finlayson and move on Garlett instead?

JohnDJ59

Rank 29,857 which is my worst start since my first year in 2014, hoping to at least be in the top 10,000 by seasons end. Down to 18 trades left, will be going Tracca to Spargo and Crowden to Ronke this week, then next week will be getting in Crouch and a defence premo, still not sure which one yet, probably Simmo or Yeo or even Hibbo. After that will need to stop trading until the byes.

DavidSA

7th SC season 2 times inside 500 1 time inside 500-1k and 3 times inside 14k hoping to not have my worst season

I think Yeo will be at Lairds scoring level while Shuey is down

JohnDJ59

Hi DavidSA that is quite a record you have there. I had one out of the box last year, finishing 1,501, four GF wins, up until then I was ranked between 24k to 53k, but improved each year. This year has not started well, seem to be treading water, always something to fix, injures, non playing rookies, spud premos. At least with Crouch and Yeo/Simmo coming into my team next week it will help boost my scoring.

finnigin

I hear you , i am having a shocker, 3 times inside top 1000 in the past, currently sitting 29000.
Still gotta have the pride to beat some of the trash mates i have though,so will still be going for leagues now ,even a dohnut on the weekend ffs.

Russty_

Hey John, remember it's only a third of the way through the season mate, you can come back from adversity and with a lot of teams dropping off in the last third, and there are always injuries, careful not to burn too many trades mate, I have to do the same.

JohnDJ59

Hey Russty, burning trades is my main worry, if it was only eight used and not twelve, I would be a bit more confident. I remember last year where I just had to stop even though I wasn't full premo, just so I would have enough trades for the finals.Although this year I might not have to worry about that as much.

KSinny

Trade or Hold Petracca?

Mystic_Mac

I'm going to hold. Saving my bullets for Billings.

Derek

When is Viney back?

DavidC

One more week. Playing magoos this week.

Hyphen

I’m holding Petracca, Goodwin came out and said he trained once in the last week to to his finger so he would’ve been rusty and mostly used up forward. Expect more this week!

Lazza

Depends on why you'd want to hold him.. What problem does he solve? He has no performance record to hang on to..

Swans2012

Holding, he'll be a handy f7 loopholer/cover eventually. Might even bring jjk in next week to share f6 duties with him long term

b_sh3p

I'm holding

SC_Sixty6

Nic Nat WILL be free to play. Mark my words. About as confident I was with Kelly on this!

No need for back up plans!

DavidSA

Annoys me how much attention that tackle is getting
It's not helping West Coast being able to challenge

finnigin

Rubbed out for good reason, could have rolled him but showed he dont care for the safety of his counterparts.

nvol

no shit he will. Stop trying to act like a prophet.

Kkk

Lol still confident mate? What are your tips this week? Would love to know, so that i can go the opposite!

finnigin

Whats the biggy mummy went for it last season , same shit

BVB21

I’m in 141st place.

Starting with Billings, Lobb, Lambert and Parker were my mistakes.

Connor

How aggressive have your trades been!!?! Also how many have you got left…

BadgerHoney7

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

NoLanguage

Not a fan of Applebys JS – maybe just do Holman to Mutch and Christensen to Ronke?

BadgerHoney7

If its not Appleby does it become Keeffe.

Sc_Wow

Keefe JS sucks too

BadgerHoney7

Feeling Appleby than

Sc_Wow

I wouldn’t get either look at who still needs to come back in for both sides

HumanBob

Maybe O'connor? Cats have an ever mounting injury list so you'd expect that he has to get a recall soon and the dpp is handy

Baggy Pants

Appleby will probably be dropped when Maynard and Reid are back, which may not be far off.
I still think Holman may be handy during byes. He had 11 tackles but crap efficiency on the weekend could have scored close to 100 with a bit more luck.

Declan

Who's got the best JS out of Appleby, Ronke and Mutch?

BadgerHoney7

1. Mutch 2. Appleby 3.Ronke

Ben

is it worth keeping holman through the byes as his round 10 bye could be very useful.

BadgerHoney7

nup

seen_burns

Might be keeping him

Nick

Holmans scores of 82, 88, 92, 96 came against Freo, Bris, Carlton and North (quite average teams), against better teams such as WCE and adelaide he has had scores of 32 and 33. His next games are against Melb, Port, Geelong and GWS, thoughts?

Baggy Pants

If he plays midfield he scores ok I think he still can make a bit more money and be handy during the byes.

DavidC

Yup, I'm planning on keeping him through the byes.

TommyC99

Crouch or Oliver? In terms of byes, I have cogs and Pendles from Oliver’s bye, and got danger, Fyfe and Dusty from crouch’s

seen_burns

Pick the one you like to watch.

BadgerHoney7

Who has better Job Security with Appleby or Keeffe.

TommyC99

Don’t rate either but if I had to pick one, I’d go Appleby

BadgerHoney7

Yep

seen_burns

With appleby, the pies have Tom Langdon and Brayden Maynard coming back so wouldn't rate his js

Crowboy94

What Midfielder should I be looking to get in this week?

Currently have Danger, Titch, Fyfe, Cripps, Merrett, MacRae

Need one that will suit the bye rounds…. only thing that is making be struggle to pick one.

DavidSA

Matt Crouch BE 96
Last 3 against Port 126, 88, 139
That 88 he scored was from 32 disposals 21 kicks 11 handballs 5 marks 5 tackles but his efficiency was bit down and 3 FA

Last time he played against:
Bulldogs 116
Melbourne 104
Giants 126
Freo 123
Hawks 131

Then has the bye

finnigin

compelling evidence,pity jacobs is down on form though

Crowboy94

Thanks Dave. Crouch was someone I can considering. Just he has that round 14 bye and wanted someone who has the round 12 bye

DavidSA

Yeah this seasons byes has made it very tricky

Crowboy94

I will definitely have enough players in round 12, 13 it's just round 14….

HumanBob

Blues,Hawks,Eagles,Dogs

The best that you don't have are Curnow, McLean, Gaff, Hunter. McLeans b.e about 56 so this is the week to get him

Crowboy94

Have McLean forward atm. Have been thinking Curnow tbh

HumanBob

Murphy coming back this week or next it might make a difference to Curnows role and/or output. He can still ton up when tagging though

John

Billings to Mitch Robinson and Finlayson to Hurley
OR
Downgrade Billings to Spargo, upgrade Finlayson to Hurley and next week do 2 upgrades.

Defenders: laird yeo Sicily finlayson doedee Cole (naughton Murphy)

Midfielders: Fyfe Martin Mitchell Cripps Coniglio Zorko Kelly Holman (Banfield Brayshaw Barry)

Rucks: Martin Gawn (Cameron)

Forwards: Heeney McLean Billings Christensen Fristch Guelfi (Henry Keefe)

Holmans scores of 82, 88, 92, 96 came against Freo, Bris, Carlton and North (quite average teams), against better teams such as WCE and adelaide he has had scores of 32 and 33. I want to hold him for roughly another 2 weeks as he is still making money, although considering his next games are against Melb, Port, Geelong and GWS, should he be offloaded immediately as evidence suggests he will not score well over the next few weeks?

Crowboy94

It depends where he gets played. In those games against tougher teams he was in the FWD line where he does not play well.

Should he get a week?
79.57% saying no – 20.43% saying yes
Bet those 20% are 15-20 year olds who only know the AFL after its golden era

Rick

Most us young blokes wanna see the game get tougher like it used to be, as we never got to experience the good old days like you and many others

KSinny

Agreed Rick

Tyruddanaut

I’m in that age bracket and I say no. But my dad is not and he says yes. It varies

joe

it was brutal troughout the eighties afl and more in local leagues but pole driving someone into the turf is a no go zone a hard tackle yes with the intention to kill crush destroy no

Nick

With cameron and lobb returning this week, surely Finlayson will be swung back into defence and be able to return to his scores of 80-90s?

DavidSA

A lot of people are keeping him surprisingly. I culled him last week and only missed 1,400 cash rise
Sell high buy low, rookies tire, make decisions on who to cull depending on structure/bank/bench cover
I'm keeping Murray out of The original 3 for my bench cover all season.

Crowboy94

Yeah time to cull him. Up to Crouch, Curnow, Gaff or Oliver for me

NoLanguage

He’s the best of the three rooks in defence IMO. Giants got pumped in Geelong and he still managed a 60, don’t be surprised if he tons up this week

SC_Sixty6

Giants still take the concervative approach on Kelly. Spewing for the holders!

Ahmad rubas

Yeah at least this means he is a guarantee for next week ….right?

DavidSA

Very rough, what was the original report of recovery length after injury?

Ahmad rubas

From what I can remember it was week to week

Jack

I thought you said he was going to play?? Number 66 wrong again!

Ahmad rubas

well i think he also said that he will likely miss more weeks than the initially reported 1-2 weeks

Sam_01

Are Ronke and Spargo must haves, how important is that cash gen gonna be into the byes. Want to go one up one down to try climb ranks currently 1360ish
Had in mind Spargo and Murray in this week then Hurley and Simpson in next week
Any good debut rookies this round? So I can go one up down this week and next?

Brady

Spargo YES

Russty_

I think Ronke could be gone when Buddy gets back in.

Sam_01

if He holds his spot though, buddy might be back this week
Just don’t like my rookies for cash gen at the moment!

INPieman

There is no such thing as a rookie with JS. None of us sit at selection tables. Spargo could easily disappear next week. But he seems worth the risk. A decision on a rookie is risk vs JS vs reward & you need to form your own opinion. To me calculated risk suggests Ronke may lose his spot to Buddy at some point soon. But seriously who TF knows. Horse has a good record of backing his kids for long periods. More so than most other coaches

HumanBob

Well said. Buddy's return will mean a restructure to the Swans forward line, that doesn't necessarily mean that Ronke will be dropped, it's all about their ability to play a role and follow coaches instructions.
Spargo might go to Tracca's house for a bbq and lose a leg

1 week for Hawkins Hedski. Usually goes alright against us. What do you think πŸ€”?

hedski

Had to happen even tho its weak as p!ss Shake.
Umpires are sacrosanct, shouldn't be touched.
Should be headbutted….
Lookin fwd to Sunday arvo mate, game on, we structured up OK when Tommy missed a few weeks ago, seemed a bit more unpredictable.πŸ‘

Shake_n_Bake_

Very true. Took annual leave Sunday one because of mother’s day two l can go to the game!

hedski

Nice work dodge, one of my magpies mates asked me to go but i can't make it.
Shit mothers day! Better get the possum something (hopefully a cats win will keep her happy)

Crowboy94

Does the umpire who was touched by Hawkins want some ice, a bandage and some tissues? Looked like it hurt him a fair bitπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Russty_

It's weak as pish isn't it?…no way there should be any suspension or fine for that unless a player pushes or punches an Umpire.

Crowboy94

Hopefully someone accidentally shirt fronts the sook of an umpire this week. Sadly the AFL and MRP have lost plot.

DavidSA

And they wonder why numbers are down on attendance. Who would pay to go watch the umps dictate the flow of the game and then have the MRP dictate who you get to see play lol

Russty_

It's an over politically correct world these days Crowboy…"oh , you touched my wrist, you're banned for a week"…it's pathetic.
If that Ump was a man, he would've just gave him a personal warning, be careful mate, you know you're not allowed to touch an Umpire.

hedski

Amen Russty.

DavidSA

Hawkins had to get a week for that Chad Cornes got a week for being a runner and not touching anyone πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

gator59

But you often see an umpire touching the players and this goes un noticed so it must be deemed as fair play then Fuc-king maggot sooks

gator59

If it was Razor Ray he would be out for life that's how much control and influence he has on a game

INPieman

I think the umpire is a pies supporter still upset about what Hawkins did on GF day 2011. A mans game is now far too soft. Absolute BS. At this rate Nic Nat will get 17 weeks for his tackle
