Nat Fyfe produced a mammoth performance at Optus Stadium on Sunday while Brodie Grundy is doing his best to challenge Max Gawn for the number one ruck position with a dominant display on Friday night.

Coaches enjoyed a higher scoring round on the weekend, with par being around the 2350-2400 mark.

The Heroes

Brisbane bull Mitch Robinson (171 SC) was at his combative best on Saturday afternoon against the Swannies. 26 of his 35 disposals were contested and he also had a massive 13 clearances and seven tackles.

Those lucky enough to have the C on Nat Fyfe (163 SC) on Sunday reaped the rewards. A staggering 26 of his 31 possessions were contested. Teammate Michael Walters (146 SC) also had a day out with 27 touches, two goals and eight marks while fellow Docker Luke Ryan (136 SC) finished with 28 possessions and 10 marks.

Brodie Grundy (152 SC) is taking it right up to big Maxwell in his quest to become the game’s number one SC ruckman. He was instrumental for the Pies on Friday night finishing with 26 disposals – 21 of them contested – seven marks, 38 hit outs and seven clearances.

Patrick Dangerfield (133 SC) continues to show signs he is returning to his best. A definite captaincy option in the coming weeks. He had 29 disposals, 17 contested possessions, eight clearances and a goal against the Blues.

We need to talk about Adam Treloar (133 SC). There’s no doubt he can find the pill, but as many coaches found out last season, he has a tendency to butcher the pill. But he’s averaging 111 after 10 rounds to be in the top 10 midfielder conversation. He’s only gone two scores under 100 in that time. Sore groins are a worry though. Anyone see that footage of him walking to training the other day?

Jimmy Webster (128 SC) has emerged a legitimate top six defender this season. Had 36 possessions on Saturday and has turned into St Kilda’s playmaker off half back. He’s now averaging 108 so far in 2018 and has tonned up in every game bar two, where he scored 81 and 95. He looks the real deal. Get him in.

Forward premo options Isaac Heeney (128 SC) and Toby McLean (122 SC) both enjoyed excellent matches. Heeney had 20 possessions and two goals while McLean finished with 33 disposals, nine marks, 10 tackles and seven clearances.

Eagle midfielder Andrew Gaff (133 SC) is currently enjoying a purple patch. He had another brilliant game on Sunday for the Eagles, tallying 35 disposals, 12 marks at 80 per cent disposal efficiency. Richmond captain Trent Cotchin (125 SC) is in close to career-best form this season. He had 32 possessions – 17 contested –and nine clearances.

Josh Caddy (146 SC) and Jade Gresham (121 SC) kicked six goals each for their respective sides on Saturday, as the Tigers got the job done against the Saints.

Other scores: Tom Stewart (135 SC), Angus Brayshaw (130 SC), David Zaharakis (126 SC),  Mitch Duncan (123 SC), Jesse Hogan (123 SC), Tom Phillips (122 SC), Jarryn Geary (121 SC).

The Villains

Marcus Bontempelli (47 SC) had just 17 disposals playing as a pure mid on Friday night, while Collingwood defender Jeremy Howe (59 SC) was kept quiet and had only 14 touches.

It’s been an up and down season for Tiger forward option Kane Lambert (72 SC) who produced another inconsistent performance on Saturday.

Young Lions defender Darcy Gardiner did a number on Lance Franklin (60 SC), while Charlie Curnow (59 SC) suffered from lack of opportunities for Carlton on Saturday night.

Midfielders Dylan Shiel (47 SC) and Lachie Neale (74 SC) were both well below their best for the Giants and Dockers on the weekend.

The Redeemers

Carlton defender Kade Simpson (140 SC) bounced back in brilliant style after 72 the previous week. He’s now almost certain to finish as a top six defender. Bomber Devon Smith (120 SC) rewarded his owners with a nice outing in his side’s win over GWS.

Ruck duo Stef Martin (134 SC) and Matt Kreuzer (139 SC) enjoyed standout games on the weekend with 58 and 39 hit outs respectively, while Geelong’s Sam Menegola (125 SC) was in fine touch after scoring 59 the previous week.

Defender Shane Savage (104 SC) and forward Allen Christiansen (100 SC) hit three figures after quiet periods while you have to admire the class and poise of Dayne Beams (141 SC). He bravely gave up the Brisbane captaincy during the week due to cope with the death of his father and had 38 disposals for the Lions on Saturday.

After a down month which included scores of 93, 64, 100 and 89, Stephen Coniglio (138 SC) was back in a big way for the Giants on Saturday. He had 32 touches, 18 contested possessions, seven tackles and 12 clearances. Teammate Heath Shaw (149 SC) was an absolute lynchpin in defence and enjoyed plenty of intercept possessions.

The Prodigies

With Finlayson and Murray dropped, the likes of Tom Doedee (104 SC), Ed Richards (102 SC) and David Mirra (81 SC) stepped up when they owners needed them to in defence. Forward options Jack Henry (99 SC), Bayley Fristch (87 SC), Ben Ronke (74 SC) and Matt Guelfi (68 SC) were also very serviceable.

Demons forward Tim Smith (102 SC) is the stand out bubble boy for this week, while Saint Logan Austin (106 SC) is a $155K defender worth considering if he can back up his ton on the weekend.

Bubble boys: Tim Smith (102 SC), Bailey Rice (68 SC), Patrick Kerr (56 SC), Jordan Ridley (49 SC), Tom McCartin (23 SC), Mitch Lewis (22 SC).

2018 first gamers: Logan Austin (106 SC), Jamaine Jones (40 SC), Ryley Stoddart (35 SC).

Other scores: Adam Cerra (75 SC), Willie Rioli (72 SC), Paddy Dowe (72 SC), Andrew Brayshaw (72 SC), Bailey Banfield (64 SC), Flynn Appleby (63 SC), Charlie Spargo (60 SC), Jaidyn Stephenson (59 SC), Cam O’Shea (59 SC), Ed Phillips (57 SC), Tim Kelly (57 SC), Tom Cole (54 SC), Hunter Clark (53 SC), Darcy Fogarty (52 SC), Jack Higgins (51 SC), Jake Waterman (49 SC), Billy Gowers (49 SC), Jordan Gallucci (48 SC), Zac Giles-Langdon (45 SC), Oscar McInerney (41 SC),Lochie O’Brien (36 SC), Cam Rayner (35 SC), Zac Bailey (30 SC), Myles Poholke (28 SC), Matt Eagles (28 SC), Esava Ratugolea (-2)

The Damned

Tim Kelly (57 SC) dropped almost 30K on the weekend and has a breakeven of 136 this week. Depending on your structures heading into the byes, he should be a priority to upgrade this week if possible.

Those who have defenders Jason Johannisen (42 SC) and Bacher Houli (15 SC) should look to move them on. Top Deck only had 14 touches on the weekend, while Houli failed to play out the game due to groin problems.

Isn’t it concerning this score from Jack Billings (70 SC) is considered an improvement on previous form? Some coaches have even reverted to playing Billings on the bench and playing a rookie on the field, such has been his fall from grace.

Exciting Cat Esava Ratugolea (-2) suffered a shocking leg injury and looks set for an extended period on the sidelines.

How did you go, community?

Is Rockliff worth the risk?

    Dildor · 28/05/2018 at 13:18

    Gonna give him this week, if he tons up he'll only go up like 25k, in that case he's in.

      theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 15:59

      Might be the smart move Dildor. Not much extra to pay if he performs and I'm worried about round 14 the most.

        Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 16:25

        I am doing the same

    INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 14:35

    Only if your in trade surplus. He breaks a lot. And if he doesn't shoot up in price it's another 2 trades to get rid of him

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 16:21

      Waiting for that apology Pie. Make it right!

        DavidC · 28/05/2018 at 22:29

        Get off this website mate. I'm all for the pieman.

          SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 23:27

          I'm all bants buddy. Pie takes it personally with homophobic remarks and profanity. Keep backing the child.

            Sixy9 · 29/05/2018 at 00:44

            Your a sad little man Dixy

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:16

    Definitely. Cheap as chips and has a proven ceiling.
    He will also give you an extra player through the byes.

    NoLanguage · 28/05/2018 at 15:17

    Nope. His body is paper mache

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 15:27

    Yup. Huge ceiling. Just had his bye will be fresh ready to pump scores out.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 28/05/2018 at 15:36

    I'm bringing him in, yeah it's risky but for the price, scoring potential and additional cover through the byes seems worth the gamble. Will see if I regret it later lol.

    theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 15:52

    At his price it's very tempting slats. I'm keen due to bye cover.

    The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 15:59

    I'm a serial Rockliff buyer slats7 but not this year.
    He's on the record as saying he didn't have a preseason, I can see him breaking again soon.
    Of course it could also be the one year that I don't get him in and he averages 130 for the rest of the year!

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:28

      Cheers. Stay away from him. That's all I needed to hear someone that always gets him and now isn't. You beauty!!!!!! Carn ROCKY!!!!

    redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 17:25

    Of course.

    It wouldn’t be a supercoach season without at least 2 trades involving Rockliff. I definitely had 4 trades involving him a few years back, could have even been more.

      gator59 · 28/05/2018 at 19:18

      On the black list and a big nup from me…. Jock should've done what was best when he took him out the back of the bungalow

        redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 19:27

        Come on Gator. You know you want to forgive him.

        if you don’t get him now, you’ll end up paying 650k for him. And that’s the week that he’ll break down.

          gator59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:29

          Sorry RH he's on the never again list… So to all that get him in good luck with that and they'll make a song and dance about it when he goes down..

    Brady · 29/05/2018 at 13:15

    Upgraded Kelly to Danger. Rockliff was on the agenda but I ain't risking it.

      Undypuncher · 29/05/2018 at 20:26

      Every year people cant wait to get rocklif into there sides. Some times 2 or 3 times a yr as his injured so much yet anyone else in these cirumstances would be caled the ultimate burn man ! I dont get it his not durable enough to be in my side.

Eric_the_Red · 28/05/2018 at 12:59

Kelly to Smith (via Spargo)
Garlett to Fyfe.

Waste of money due to Fyfe's price or a no brainer? I could look for value elsewhere but I hate missing out on Fyfe's scores (took Neale at start of year instead)

Will complete my midfield.

    Crowboy94 · 28/05/2018 at 13:11

    Go for it mate. Fyfe is back to his best this year!

BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 13:26

Are people trading in premiums this week who haven't had their bye yet e.g. Cripps or going for Port/Suns players who have had their bye like Westhoff?

Not sure if trading in player such as Cripps etc who have their bye next week is pointless or not.

    INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 14:12

    Depends on your bye structure. If you have adequate coverage then get it done. If not wait till his bye is done

    Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 15:07

    Agree With INPieman. it's all down to the individual BB for there structure.
    My bye structure is solid but will be going for a port/suns player this week for that bit more cover.
    Plenty of good options out there.
    Hall, Rocky, Westhoff, Gray Ryder.
    But I do like the look of E.Curnow & Gaff if u can accommadate there bye! huge PODs

      BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 15:19

      Rocky is tempting. Imagine if he could get back to that 2014 form.

        Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:21

        Even 2016 BB check out that second half of the year

          BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 16:41

          Yeah he finished strong.

          I'm just not sure if I trust his body at this point in time.

          I do however like his buddy Westhoff.

      Derek · 28/05/2018 at 17:22

      You forgot the Chad.

        neil demonsdelight · 28/05/2018 at 17:53


          JugHead · 28/05/2018 at 18:52

          Derek, I wouldnt buy the Chad even if I could use YOUR money…lol

    Jack · 28/05/2018 at 15:14

    I wouldn't get Cripps as he is no certainty to play. Finished the game with heavy strapping

    theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 15:56

    Westhoff is almost a must have when Ryder not playing.

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:30

      Ryder managed for rest of year. Interesting…..

Doc · 28/05/2018 at 13:29

Not really SuperCoach relevant but to SC66 (dw it's not a rant😉) or anyone else that may know, why was Dylan Shiels TOG so low, only 75%? Is he carrying some sort of injury?

    Dildor · 28/05/2018 at 13:40

    GWS always have some weird sh!t going on with their interchanges. He was caught on the bench for 6 or so minutes. That combined with conigs and ward being on fire was why it was a bit low.

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 14:57

    Nothing in it Doc! Most likely held up for consecutive stoppages and that does happen on opposite side of interchange which makes it hard for rotations as they don't want to be caught out 1 less in the contest.

BoltonsBlues · 28/05/2018 at 13:59

Ranked 497 with 14 Trades left, passing up on Walters due to his bye round.

Lloyd, Laird, Sicily, Ryan, Simpson, Doedee (Mirra, Murphy)
Macrae, Fyfe, Danger, Cripps, Titch, Cogs, Dusty, Zerret (Coffield, Barry, Phillips)
Gawn NicNat
Mclean, Gray, Henney, Fristch, Fisher, Henry (Sprago, Guelfi)

Thinking just Coffield to T Smith (Sprago swing) to get some bank up, will have 140k if i do that trade
Based on last weeks teams ill have
19 players Round 12
19 players Round 13
17 players Round 14

Thats not including players that didnt play last week, so if Murphy or Barry get a call up ill have 18 for Round 14


    Jack · 28/05/2018 at 15:16

    That's solid enough I think. Remember also in Round 14 you can trade in players who have already had a bye, so that 17 could easily be 20 on that alone

      Sammy_14 · 28/05/2018 at 21:56

      Ive also got Fisher, what are you thinking about doing with him as his scoring hasnt been great last few weeks?

    Roger · 28/05/2018 at 22:39

    great team but need to turn Fritz and Henry into premo's soon and if injuries strike your trades are looking thin . remember finals. Nic nat sideways to Grundy for perfection. very solid.

seen_burns · 28/05/2018 at 14:34

Can't believe I'm still talking about Billings.
Should I trade Billings, could AVG well after his bye and get his confidence back, or Fritsch cash gen will stagnate and is a rookie.

    INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 15:12

    The time to trade Billings was a long time ago. If you've still got him cover him up with a post it note on your PC screen

      redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 17:32

      Ah. True wisdom, from one of this sites most thoughtful members.

      It’s good to see you back.

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:15

    Have to hold if you still have him

      DacZawson · 28/05/2018 at 15:33

      As a general rule I agree but I'd say if they don't have Walters and it's okay for their bye structure then that's a viable trade.

      seen_burns · 28/05/2018 at 15:34

      Cheers guys

Millsy · 28/05/2018 at 14:41

Got 4 upgrades to go. 16 trades left. Thinking Walters and Smith in this week (121k kitty). Then double downgrade and either Simpson on his bye or Webster ( Webster could leave me exposed in rd 14) Then 1 down grade, Mcreae and (Gaff, Oliver or Cripps). Would leave 8 trares and a fullish side by rd 13…… Billings will need upgrading.

Team would be by rd 13:
Backs: Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Hurley, Lloyd, (Webster or Simpson)
Mids: Mcreae, Titch, Danger, Dusty, Fyfe, M. Crouch, Conig, (Oliver, Cripps, or Gaff).
Rucks: Gawn, Grundy
Forwards: Mclean, Heeney, Walters, Buddy, D. Smith, Billings.

Who in the brackets do I get, or others not suggested?

    Jack · 28/05/2018 at 15:18

    Simpson and Cripps and hold Billings till his bye

taytay · 28/05/2018 at 14:48

T. Kelly MID $401,700
L. Murphy DEF $198,800

T. Smith FWD $123,900
K. Simpson DEF $497,500

    SteveC · 28/05/2018 at 19:57

    I reckon Murphy might play after the crows shocker last week

      theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 20:14

      Agree. After that poor performance he's likely to get another shot.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 28/05/2018 at 15:09

How many trades and cash do teams have? I have 20 trades & $200k. Im looking at Smith and Rice to bring in this week for Murphy & Garlett just need players playing over the byes.

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:25

    11 trades -60k

      Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 15:35

      I have 18 trades left with 560k in the kitty. a big 2 weeks of trades for me ahead

    The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 15:29

    16 trades. 125K. 3 rookies left onfield.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/05/2018 at 15:46

    Not enough of either to do your shake n bake fake move

    Please tell me u have one planned for the byes.

      The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 16:01

      Macrae down to Rockliff would be very SnB!

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 28/05/2018 at 16:35

      I do have one planned it will most likely come down to two or three players but l have to see there price at the time and the player l want to bring in is definitely someone l think will have a great run home. Last couple of years went Danger to Sloane last year Mitchell to Parker.

        neil demonsdelight · 28/05/2018 at 18:01

        Look forward to that mate week too late NDD

Bells · 28/05/2018 at 15:15

Dangerfield or Walters in this week? The choice is doing my head in. Leaning toward Danger. ..

    theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 16:02

    Danger is your man.

Simo036 · 28/05/2018 at 15:23

Paddy, all day, every day.

Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:23

I didn’t go too bad, slipped a few places but happens to the best of us. I think patch even had a down week!
Hoping to get Hurley back this week, and two new recruits Walters and rocky.
Let’s hope next week is better!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/05/2018 at 15:50

    Hurley back not likely to increase the score much as assume you had doodee on field and he has averaged about 100 last 2 weeks.

      Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:51

      Yep and he will still be on the feild this week 😊

Rick Grimes · 28/05/2018 at 15:24

Walters looks great value but he's brittle. Not sure I can risk a trade on a bloke who could well miss weeks at any time??

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:26

    If you have cover I say go for it 419k for the ceiling he has is great. I know you’ll disregard this though as it’s written by me

      Rick Grimes · 28/05/2018 at 16:20


    Jack · 28/05/2018 at 16:38

    It's a risk….But is it a bigger risk not to? I think so

The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 15:53

Taylin Duman. Is he gonna get another game or do we just ditch him for Rice/Ridley?

    Matty Humphreys · 28/05/2018 at 15:56

    Ross said after game he needs to play and there gonna double down with youth so I'd imagine he'd be back in this week

      The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 15:57

      Thanks Matty. I missed that.
      Ross wouldn't lie to us would he?!

Ricardo · 28/05/2018 at 15:56

Not sure what the fuss is about Rockliff. Averages less than Billings. Had his bye is the only thing going for him. It's just a nothing trade IMO. Seems people are racing towards 'full premo' without actually having absolute premos in their team.

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 15:59

    Was injured to start the season. Have a look at season prior where he started similar. Let me know what you find out mate.

    Keenbutclueless · 28/05/2018 at 16:20

    Rocky appeals on a few fronts. If you are chasing the pack (like me) you need to get a few POD’s in there. Given his injury history, interrupted pre-season, horrible season start, he’s not really a risk worth taking for highly placed teams. So if you get him and it comes off, you might make up some ground.

    And, yes he is handy for the byes. Should make some cash.

    For my own structure, I think I can get to no rookies on field by round 13. I will have Mirra, Austin, Holman, Giro, Ahern, Smith and Spargo on my benches. So across Rounds 14 and 15, I can still have enough cash to upgrade those who are short of full premium. At the moment, that looks like Hibberd, Zerrett, Rocky and Lambert. Three of those 4 have been genuine premiums, so still a chance they might stay. But enough cash generation left if they don’t.

    I have run a lot of scenarios. They all work better if I take Rocky now.

    In short, taking Rocky might still be a good play, despite his risks, depending on where your team is placed, your bye structure and your immediate cash.

      prizza · 28/05/2018 at 20:11


    redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 17:51

    If he stays fit for a few weeks then I think he’ll pump out a few 100-120s, quickly go up in price and it will be worth it.

    If he really hits his straps, then he will consistently pump out 120-150s, with the odd massive score thrown in. He’ll rise to over 700k and be a must.

    If he gets injured next week, we knew the risk.

    The possible rewards outweigh the risks.

    Doc · 28/05/2018 at 20:43

    Pretty sure most people will be selecting Rocky as bye cover and also someone that could quite possibly turn into a premo by he end of the year. If it seems like he's not performing upto that 100-110 ppg standard I'm sure a lot of people will have a back up plan that would have Rocky as an M9 looper.

      Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 20:45

      Thats my plan, cheap as it gets right now and at worse becomes cover for suspended players or injuries

Matty Humphreys · 28/05/2018 at 15:57

Thinking this week Kelly and Langdon out Pends and Smith in, thoughts?

Marcus · 28/05/2018 at 15:57

Current bye structure is
20 (14 premos)
17 (15 premos)
17 (12 premos)
Does that seem under where I need to be?

    Marcus · 28/05/2018 at 16:02

    Have 20 premos (including Gray)
    so have 6 missing, 5 missing then 8 missing= 19

      DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:18

      Marcus build up some coin get Smith from Melb and Rice from Saints
      If you have Murphy from Crows get rid of him for Rice.
      Use the cash to then get any Carlton, West Coast, Hawthorn, Power player after the r12 bye <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;

Mark · 28/05/2018 at 16:00

Didn't do too badly. 2,568 and moved up to a ranking of 104:) Brought in Webster this week which worked out pretty well:)

    The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 16:07

    Great score Mark, good luck mate.

    theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 16:12

    Excellent work Mark! Webster is definitely the surprise defender this season and a must have. The Saints don't look like they're getting any better so he'll get a lot more of it. Keep going mate, good luck.

Gibbs · 28/05/2018 at 16:00

hinking of going Tim Kelly to Boak. Reasoning is Boak is averaging 98, a good pod only in 2% of teams and will play through the byes. My plan is to then in 2 weeks swap him into the fwd line and trade Fritsch to my final premo mid, thoughts?

    The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 16:07

    Very tempted by Boak too Gibbs.

    theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 16:10

    Not the worst idea Gibbs. If Port are playing well then he usually is part of that and they have a good run ahead with most of their games at home. He averages 97.4 at Adelaide Oval.

NoLanguage · 28/05/2018 at 16:10

Hey Community, great to see some ripping scores this week. Managed 2574 and up to 1800 in rank but have a quandary…

B – Yeo, Laird, Savage, Hibberd, Mirra, Richards (Keeffe, Finlayson)
M – Fyfe, Danger, Cripps, Titch, Cogs, Dusty, Parker, Zerrett (Barry, Phillips, Mutch)
R – Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
F – McLean, Sicily, Heeney, Smith, Walters, Fritsch (Guelfi, Spargo)

17 trades, $170k

Option 1 – Double downgrade – Finlayson/Mutch > Rice/Smith leaving me with $420k
Option 2 – Paint the fence – Finlayson/Mutch > Simmo/Smith leaving me with $50k

Option 1 leaves me 4 off full premo (inc Hibberd) and a bye coverage of 15 premo/21 total in R12, 13/18 in R13 and 12/19 in R14
Option 2 leaves me 3 off full premo (inc Hibberd) and a bye coverage of 15 premo/20 total in R12, 14/18 in R13 and 12/20 in R14

Sorry about the long message, any advice is hugely appreciated as always 🙂

    The Ranger · 28/05/2018 at 16:21

    Great score NoL.
    Option 2 for mine. Simmo will start going up in price again next week.

      NoLanguage · 28/05/2018 at 16:54

      Thanks Ranger you're not wrong, just gotta hope the rooks play through the byes for cover

      Steve · 28/05/2018 at 20:06

      I agree Simo and smith for me also

    Loop · 28/05/2018 at 16:30

    Just wait for the teams. West Coast are thinking about resting Yeo.

Northernsoul74 · 28/05/2018 at 16:14

      Silly people

Rick Grimes · 28/05/2018 at 16:17

INP is a JR stalwart. If he bagged you there was probably good reason. Best stick to pontificating about your ranking and general big-noting bullocks.

    neil demonsdelight · 28/05/2018 at 17:57

    Great for fantasy and this forum Rick

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/05/2018 at 18:39

      This comment has been deleted by the administrator……hehehehehehe

Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 16:22

I think if Ridley gets named this week I will have to go him just because of the bye situation.

    Steeeve · 28/05/2018 at 20:22

    I'm not confident he will stay in the team during the byes so will take Rice. Or neither and hope Heron and Austin put their hands up next week…….

      DavidC · 29/05/2018 at 06:56

      Good chance Heron stays in the team according to GC fans.

AFC1886 · 28/05/2018 at 16:29

T Kelly to Rocky or Walters?

    BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 16:39

    Depends how your round 14 bye looks. If you have no issues there, go Walters.

Fearthebeard · 28/05/2018 at 16:35

Webster, yeo or Walters this week lads?

    DacZawson · 28/05/2018 at 16:44

    Depending on bye structure, this is the week for Walters

John · 28/05/2018 at 16:39

I want to get tim Smith this week but I don’t have any rookies ready to cull besides Keefe, the only thing is it won’t give me much cash. My other rookies are Fritsch, Spargo, Guelfi and Henry, what do I do?

    JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 18:03

    All four are worth keeping for now, I have all of them, I traded out Barry and moved Spargo to the mids to get Smith, do you have anyone in the mids that isn't playing or not going to make much more cash.

      John · 28/05/2018 at 18:27

      Dom Barry is the only one in my mids who’s not playing

        redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 18:38

        Barry is out of my team this week, if not named. I’ve held him to help in the byes, but he’s useless if he’s not playing. Even when he does play, he’s lucky to get to 50.

        Keeffe, I’m keeping for a while to help swing Sicily, but again, in the games he played his scores were bad.

        I don’t see much money being made by either. So trade away, I say.

        I’m looking at the 3 trades per week in the byes to help ditch my useless rookies, as long as there are decent trade in options.

        JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 18:38

        So there you go.

          John · 28/05/2018 at 18:46

          Cheers guys

            Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:09

            I wouldn't do it, not enough cash being made from the trade

    Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:08

    I would trade out Fritsch.

      theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 20:16

      Yep Fritsh is ripe enough for me, nice earn.

      JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:17

      Hi DM at least Fritsch is getting a game and scoring alright, 90,65,98,87,87 in his last five games, good enough to have on field and will make cash up untill the end of the byes, plus the Dees play in rd 14.

    Steeeve · 28/05/2018 at 20:24

    Henry out of those

    roger · 28/05/2018 at 22:51

    Henry has nearly reached his peak. Smith is a powerhouse and not to be missed. gets involved, kicks goals and pinch hits in the ruck.

    Russty_ · 29/05/2018 at 01:07

    I'd get rid of Henry, just came off a 99 sure but he's just as likely to go 40 next week, he's a yoyo scorer. 300k down to Smith will be nice coin made.

Alan31 · 28/05/2018 at 16:43

Is Ed Curnow a good trade in option for tim kellly?

    Mck · 28/05/2018 at 22:33

    There’s better

    theRealPod · 29/05/2018 at 06:30

    Good POD

Nifty · 28/05/2018 at 16:47

Thoughts please.

T Kelly to Rocky or Dusty?


    NoLanguage · 28/05/2018 at 16:52


BlueBaggerJosh · 28/05/2018 at 16:52

Are people trading in Rocky in the hopes he will be a season long M8?

    Philip · 28/05/2018 at 17:00

    For me M9 with an average of around 100. Gives me good coverage during the byes and is very cheap

      Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 17:07

      And also saves an injury trade down the track

        DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:25

        No for me I'm hoping he scores 95-100 4 round avg for the R11 R12 R13 R14 period. Then be priced around 520k by then which is 150k up from his current price!
        That's the up side
        The bonus is you can choose to use that coin made or keep him M9

taytay · 28/05/2018 at 17:03

what 8 mids should we have?

    Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 17:16

    must haves so far are danger, macrae, dusty, mitchell cripps, Fyfe, oliver kelly you ideally want 6 of them by seasons end. kelly & danger even with injury and form will be top 8
    for PODs i like treloar, E. Curnow & cotch
    Thats my opinion.

    DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:29

    There is the Holy 5
    1 Titch
    2 Fyfe
    3 Danger
    4 Cripps
    5 Macrae

    That's currently

    Martin, Oliver, Treloar, Gaff, Pendlebury, Neale, Coniglio ect all next tier

    redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 18:05

    Obvious ones are Fyfe, Danger, Mitchell.

    Pretty sure Dusty and Oliver will be there as well.

    Macrae, but I wouldn’t spend the $$ on him at the moment.

    There’s a range of others to fill those last 2. I’ve got JKelly, Merrett and Rocky. Hopeful on Kelly, Merrett has disappointed so far and I would rather someone else. Rocky, we’ll see.

      redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 18:26

      Going on current numbers, Cripps should have been included.

      I don’t have plans for him, so hoping he tails off near the end of the season.

    Should be this week

      DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:32

      Im watching closely for his next 2 games
      Could be a nice inclusion after the bye for lowest price he will ever be

    Brady · 29/05/2018 at 13:36

    Yep. Will most likely replace Dea

SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 17:15

Scored 2497 so only on par and now ranked #656

The line has been drawn as certain community members can get away with murder. Admin didn't even bat an eyelid and deleted abusive and vulgar comments towards myself and Wow so others could not see.

Talk about conspiracy. At least I now know what language is acceptable here which has been clearly outlined due to the deleted post I made about INPieman's direct profanity toward Wow

    Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 17:19

    Yep very disappointed. Seems like there are a lot of sheep that throw out abuse and then hide behind the line of community. Not sure that you understand the term. The hypocrisy is ridiculous. I may post my rank from time to time but do not stoop down to using vulgar language

      DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:42

      I will still hug you 66

      Wow are you on for the r11 post podcast for byes?

        Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 17:44

        Hey Dave the house I’m building has been delayed, so the studio within that house isn’t quite ready yet.

          Awwww ok man 😐

    Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 17:41

    I don't mind you blokes when yas arent peacocking round gloating and shooting down other members opinions.
    But at the same time you two do cop alot of heat which is probably un warranted at times.
    Yas are very informative and a decent assett to this site 90% of the time the other 10% even i wanna knock ya blocks off haha We need to all find a way to get along cause last year this community was a heap of fun with banter and friendships formed through here that carry on over years it's nice to come back and see the familiar faces of TOPHAWK, BrownlowBoy & INPieman.
    We all just have to remember alot of people play for leagues & fun.
    Jock didnt build up this empire and the best forum on the net to have everyone shit on it & burn it to the ground.
    Now lets get back to a tight knit COMMUNITY and doing what we al love and that is supercoaching 🙂
    Lets keep the banter going its all in good fun just keep it above the belt.

      Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 17:43

      Well said Mav

        DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:44

      neil demonsdelight · 28/05/2018 at 18:18

      Totally agree Mav .the 10 % is what we don't need I enjoy wow's word's of wisdom but not at the expense of stalwards like TOPHAWK and pieman .A lot of regulars have disappeared or only appear now and again Where's old NDD

        Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 18:23

        I’m all good with that, as long as those boys aren’t disrespectful aswell 👍🏼

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/05/2018 at 18:41

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:04

      Focal talking point most days TH. You love getting in on it.

      neil demonsdelight · 28/05/2018 at 19:14

      Don't stir the guys up TOPPA maybe it will all drop off

    INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 19:00

    66 & ShamWow I make no apologies to 2 clowns that have nothing better to do than take cheap shots at people asking for advice. The epitome of key board warriors. I realise you are mates in real life. So have a cuddle & a reach around on each other. Get that happy ending your looking for

      Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 19:03

      Well i tried to get the community back on track 🙁 but doesn't look like pieman and TH are going to be overly cooperative

        Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 19:08

        Disappointing that

        Connor · 28/05/2018 at 19:08

        There is good reason to be sick of Wow and 66 – both are already on their second chance having already been blocked once this season – can only assume they made all sorts of promises to get back in (haven't upheld these thus far)…

          INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 19:12

          You can't polish a turd Connor

            Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 19:19

            More unnecessary abuse from pie. I bet your sheep will be all over it too mate. Would you just prefer if I agree with everything you write like everyone else on here. It’s probably done you some good having an ego check

              INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 20:03

              I wont change for anyone ShamWow. Get over yourself

                Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 20:06

                Same goes to you

          Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 19:16

          Nope we were just unblocked, that rooster bloke never returned maybe it’s others that are the problem. You might reflect on what you guys are saying one day and actually see you’re a major part of the problem. No key board warriors here, I’d say personal abuse falls under the warrior banner, having different opinions on sc related matter just provides alternative views. I can’t help that those alternative views upset people. I will never be a sheep 🐑

        SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:19

        It's hard to change people set in their ways for so long Mav.

        It's funny how Pie said he would never reply to myself or Wow only 3 hours ago. Yet he again posts abuse. This time homophobic slander. How people so called respect Pie is beyond me.

        Not to mention he'd be a mouse in reality, the hypocrite by calling us keyboard warriors. Haha.

          gator59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:04

          FFS can you guys just let it go… So sick of the rants… You guys do have some valid points and I appreciate the banter but please don't try and bring down great blokes like Tophawk and Pieman and other great regulars on this once Great forum..

          I don't chose to post much anymore cause you will only get hounded about how bad you are going about your ranking and bad strategys on getting to premo…Just chill, take a pill and enjoy what we've got, or what's left of it

          Over and out

            theRealPod · 28/05/2018 at 20:12

            Looks like a 'divide and conquer' routine.

            SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 20:53

            Thanks for your input Gator but I think you'll find TH and Pie are the ones putting us down. Check out pies comment history. Speaks volumes.

            Interesting to hear you think we have bad strategies to get to full premo when we are top 1% and top 100 consistently.

            Goodluck with rest of the year.

              gator59 · 29/05/2018 at 12:34

              If you read properly on what I said 66 i'm not having a go at you or wow on your rankings and I never said that you have bad strategies

          INPieman · 28/05/2018 at 20:14

          Because I've never bagged anyone who asked for advice over the years. Only tried to help. I'll sleep just fine with that. You & Sham enjoy bagging people for your own gratification. And good luck with that. Like I said yesterday your avatar is what you are in real life. An angry & disturbed identity of some form. It's hard to believe there could to 2 people like you both. I think you & ShamWow are the same person. Get some help dude

            Moosehead · 28/05/2018 at 20:16

            We are support you Pieman.

            SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 20:55

            You are delusional. As Wow said everyone established the fact we are seperate identities weeks ago.

            Sc_Wow · 29/05/2018 at 13:26

            Never bagged anyone mate, questioning their sc selections isn’t bagging. You have all your hypocritical sheep backing you, congratulations.
            The support for someone continuously trying to personally attack people is amazing. Even tried letting it go earlier in this thread and you start it back up again.

Double downgrade this week or 1 up 1 Down?
If i double down i will have 580k in the kitty for the 1st bye round.

If not then 179k and bring in Westhoff this week

    DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:37

    How many premiums you have Crow?

      Crowboy94 · 28/05/2018 at 17:44

      17 mate. 1 to upgrade in DEF and MID. 2 or 3 to do in FWD

        DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 17:48

        Option 2 then

    Sam_01 · 28/05/2018 at 17:40

    same position as i

      Sam_01 · 28/05/2018 at 17:43

      How much cash you got in the bank and on bench and how much you need to upgrade?
      I got mirra and Spargo to go to Hurley and Hoff to complete my team
      Got 14 trades left 10k in the bank gonna need to make about 500k from somewhere to upgrade them both, got stuff all cash on the bench with ZGL being worth the most at the moment

        Jack · 28/05/2018 at 18:00

        Do ZGL to Smith for a start. How much does that make you?

      Jay · 28/05/2018 at 17:46

      Absolutely! With T. Smith on the bubble as well – will look to downgrade someone in the Forward line as well…..build up the war chest for the byes!

There is certainly alot of value around to seduce supercoaches alike, it almost needs its own article!

Walters: Yes for me. A top6 fwd if it wasn't for injury

Rockliff: Not for me. Port are stacked with midfielders, 1 bad game he is back to fwd role I fear

Kennedy: I'm starting to warm to the idea. Could easily average 95 from here.

Kreuzer/Ryder: No, but only cos I feel Gawn & Grundy are must haves

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:11

    Always good to have a laid out plan like that but things can change with injuries.

    Have you gone off projections? Probably a better way to go as you haven't specified what you're paying for Webster or Hurley. JOM to premo …..is that under 400k? Because rd 14 you have 30k to start the round and going by Webster/premo/rookie your looking at over a million which they will only just get combined.

      BadgerHoney7 · 28/05/2018 at 19:22

      yeh went off projections so appleby say will be 255 k when I trade him off and Hurley is projected to be 480 k (hence the -225 k)
      the money is how much I am left with after the trades are made.

        SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:26

        Hopefully the projections work for you. Good to see a plan though. Smart

          now have to make a decision rice or tim smith – feel like smith is going to be good bench cover but not sure if I go early on one of mutch/spargo/guelfi. ahh decisions, decisions

            SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:31

            See how your bye coverage is. For me Smith works better and luckily because he looks like a better generator of cash.

Anthony · 28/05/2018 at 18:25

DEF (J. Lloyd, Laird, Sciliy, Hurn, Savage, Doedee,) – Coffield, Mirra

MID (Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Parker, Coniglio, Martin , Spargo) – E.Phillips , Barry, Brayshaw

RUCK (Gawn, Grundy) – Cameron

FWD (McLean, Heeney, D.Smith, Franklin, Fritsch, Henry,) – Guelfi, Langdon,

$10,400 in the bank.

Currently ranked 6,410 coming off the back of a nice 2,465 couldn’t ask for much more. Have 17 trades left, open to all trades options pls much appreciated.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/05/2018 at 19:04

    Nice score mate! I like your team and the amount of trades you have in the kitty. I have 17 as well and am ranked 9916. You are well positioned. Perhaps try and grab Timothy Smith by culling a fattened lamb to raise some cash. All your forward rooks have low BE's and will make more cash. Perhaps punt Barry for if not named for Smith via DPP and let McLean run around at M8 instead of Spargo for a while. Good luck!

      Anthony · 29/05/2018 at 09:20

      Cheers Tophawk much appreciated.

JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 18:34

Not a bad weekend for Black Flag, scored 2285, my best score since rd 3, won three league games and had a draw with TopHawk, my rank isn't great at 37,838 but at least it stopped getting worse.Had one good trade in (Lloyd) and one bad (Howe) after I changed my mind on getting in Ryan, changed to Howe just before the Pies game, even after trading those two in I still had two donuts on the field in the backline, due to injures and dropped players, so the round left me a little frustrated. This week will be hoping Hurley comes back or I will still be in trouble in the backline, going to trade as if he is coming back. Kelly > Rice, swing Finlayson to the mids, Barry > Smith, swing Spargo to the mids. That will give me 389,900 in the kitty for a upgrade next week. Still have six premos to get, two in def, one in mids, three in fwds and only have 12 trades left, so will end up a few short.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/05/2018 at 18:48

    Hi John! What a match that was with you mate. A frigging draw. 2285 was an OKish score but I am looking forward to the byes. I am pretty balanced playerwise going into them. Hoping to start my run up the rankings in coming weeks. I traded in Howe as well, but he will be fine and will be crucial for us during the byes. Looking to trade in Rockliff for Kelly this week. Will leave me with 16 trades. Holman and Rocky will hopefully tear it up during the byes after their week off. Then use 5-6 trades during the byes to complete my side and be full premo. Then 10 trades for the run home. Good luck as we are entering the business end of the season mate. Cheers. TH

      JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 19:47

      Hey TH, hope the AFL never take away the draw, sure is better than a lose in a close game, looks like you have everything under control with trades in hand to get to full premo, I got there at round 16 with 6 trades to spare last year, had injures last year, but this year it just seems to be snowballing my team, so I've used more trades than I wanted and not the way I planned, I'll just have to keep going and see where it gets me. Good luck to you too TH and good trading.

    redherringfc · 28/05/2018 at 19:01

    Being short on trades, why don’t you try to pick up some value this week.

    Generating cash isn’t any good to you if you’ve run out of trades. From what you’ve said, I’d skip Rice this week and try to upgrade.

    If you’re willing to take the risk on Rocky he is basically a straight swap from a rookie, where other premiums basically cost you 2 trades.

    Walters is very cheap. Dusty and Buddy are great value this round, if you don’t have them.

    Good luck.

      JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 19:33

      Sounds good on paper red, but the problem is my backline, I need to get players that are playing onto the field and since I did a double upgrade last week I have stuff all cash left, so need to do two downgrades this week, if Hurley doesn't come back this week I might not even be able to get Smith, I'll have to do two trades in defence, So Rocky is no good to me, since I have cover in the mids.

        Lazza · 28/05/2018 at 22:15

        Yep, quite a few of us had to change plan last week with the backline out to ensure we fielded a team.. was good for me though, meant I brought Yeo in 2 weeks earlier than planned and couldn’t trade Kelly out Kelly, so whilst I lost coin on Kelly it meant I had to field both Richards and Doedee… balanced outcome… now I have to work out who to trade in for Kelly .. Gaff and Cripps were on my watch list for last week, now their byes means I’ll have to make a different choice ..

          JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 14:02

          Hey Lazza, after getting in Howe instead of Ryan, just because of the byes, I say stuff it, I'm just going to get in who I want and the byes can look after themselves, mind you if you have plenty of trades left then you can afford to do multiple trades. I'm alright for rd12 but rd13 and rd14 are really bad for me so even if I did try and fix it up, it wouldn't make a lot of difference. Yeo was the other one I was looking at, but I was worried he might not play, he will be in my team by the end of the byes, probably get him in rd13 depending on the cash situation.

            Russty_ · 29/05/2018 at 15:24

            Hi Hohn, agree about the byes, if, we're all gonna try to 18 onfield for all 3 rounds we'll have to burn 3 trades each week and probably not end with the team you want anyway, and will probably run out of trades before finals too, I'm just gonna cop a loss or 2 and hopefully still win a few leagues. Rank isn't that important to me, battling it out with your mates in Leagues is more fun.

              JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 16:09

              Hey Russty, after the weekend I've just about given up on my rank, top 10,000 is a long way off, so looking at my leagues, not doing much better, only a chance for finals in three of the ten. I play your Underdorks in Chatter Boxers and Sandra's Sandy's Assassins in the Sons in round 12, only won one game in both and sitting on or near the bottom in both, should be able to field 18 players then, so hoping to put up a contest at least.

                Russty_ · 29/05/2018 at 16:32

                Know how you feel mate I'm ranked 13th in that one and another and 15th in another, Guns N Rookies I'm 1st!..dunno how that happened haha, some stiff competition this year for sure.
                Only won 5 of 10 this week thanks to my pod Cam Ellis spudman delivering a 39 lol

                  JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 17:23

                  I helped you out there Russty, by having a draw with TopHawk. I just looked at the Sons league and I've had the most points scored against me, no wonder I'm second last.

                  Lazza · 30/05/2018 at 00:29

                  Funny that, there’s a guy in two cash leagues I’m in who is top in one and bottom the other .. go figure ..

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:40

    Wow 2 donuts and you drew with TH? Great effort John. TH would be scratching his head thinking why is his team so bad. I spose that's why we have trades. Sounds like he needs 40.

    Keep it up John, each year we learn from our mistakes. Key is to actually learn and execute what you learnt in the next season.

      JohnDJ59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:10

      Hi 66, my motto for this year was only trade when you really need to, mmmm, well injuries and three not very premo players really tested that out, looking back at my trades there are probably two I shouldn't have done, but apart from them, none were wasted trades.

BlueBoy · 28/05/2018 at 18:45

Hi guys,

Team is
B – Lloyd, Laird, Simpson, Sicily, Ryan, Mirra (Keeffe, Murray)
M – Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Titch, Oliver, Neale, Cogs, Kelly (Barry, Phillips, Holman)
R – Gawn, Naitanui (Olango)
F – McLean, Heeney, Smith, Walters, Hogan, Fritsch (Guelfi, Spargo)

$47k in the bank

Kelly has to go but I want to go 1 up and one down to get Smith in. Is Rocky worth it? Or do I go after Danger and get rid of a rookie early?

Any suggestions, community?

    r_calve · 28/05/2018 at 20:01

    I reckon you do the double downgrade this week with Murray down to Ridley and kelly down to Smith via DPP, this will leave you with about 500k in the bank so you can upgrade Mirra or Fritsch later.

      BlueBoy · 28/05/2018 at 21:15

      Thanks RC!

r_calve · 28/05/2018 at 19:01

should I trade in boak as a POD that will play all the bye rounds

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:24

    I do indeed. 8/12 home games here on in. Port will look to finish 5-8th. Boak will lead his boys well. Nice pod. I'm deciding over Boak or Westhoff.

      r_calve · 28/05/2018 at 19:28

      if you've got the cash go Westhoff but a lot of people might get him so if you want a POD go for boak and the extra cash

      Derek · 28/05/2018 at 19:38

      What do you think about Jonas at the other end?

        SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:45

        For his price Derek I couldn't do it because I don't see his ceiling high enough for my liking. In a few weeks the premos we are after may drop and be within 20k of Jonas.

        Jonas has been consistent but ceiling the worry. Better options available even if you were looking for bye cover I wouldn't pay that much.

          BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 19:46

          Hasn't scored under 84 this year. Could potentially be a D9 come seasons end.

            SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:49

            For 480k odd? Pass. Rather take a punt on withers if he gets to 350k

    BlueBaggerJosh · 28/05/2018 at 19:48

    Next week Boak and Westhoff will both be coming into my team

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 19:50

      Stop copying me. 😜

        BlueBaggerJosh · 28/05/2018 at 20:26

        Cant resist it 66. In that case ill go with Gray instead for a nice rollercoaster ride while you look on in jealousy of my fun times.

BrownlowBoy · 28/05/2018 at 19:59

Shoutout to my SC Elites league!

Ranked 28th!

    gator59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:13

    A great rank BB and we're moving up slowly … Keep it up guys

    Also NDD A Graders is 29th and going great guns too!!!

Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:11

Just thought I would remind everyone who got burnt by Scott Selwood last year. Obviously Rocky is a much better player but they are both very prone to injuries and I can see the same thing happening this year. I passed on Scooter last year and I will probably pass on Rocky this year as well.
Cheers community

    hedski · 28/05/2018 at 20:22

    I won't go near Rocky either DM, had enough injuries already without taking a punt on a tissue paper man.

      gator59 · 28/05/2018 at 20:34

      Same here guys….and when he goes down everyone will make a song and dance about it

        Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 20:37

        I'll be sure to invite you guys to his 200 point party too 😉

        SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 20:50

        No song and dance for me. M9's come in handy!

          Ja191 · 28/05/2018 at 21:03

          Not when they’re injured

Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 20:15

So I've just re checked my bye structure regarding promos and it looks like this
rd12- 15
rd13- 15
rd14- 16

How's everyone else looking?

    Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:16

    I currently have 12 premiums playing each week. Will be 13-13-12 if I get Walters this week

    Keenbutclueless · 28/05/2018 at 20:22

    round 12 – 15
    Round 13 – 15
    Round 14 – 18

    But that is a slightly loose definition of premium. It includes Lambert, Hibberd, Rocky and Zerrett

    But overall, my fixation on Round 14 left me a little light for Round 13, but I am happy

    Jack · 28/05/2018 at 20:23


    CalebCripps922 · 28/05/2018 at 20:27

    Looking pretty good mate

    BlueBaggerJosh · 28/05/2018 at 20:34

    Round 12-16
    Round 13-19
    Round 14-14

      Sc_Wow · 28/05/2018 at 20:37

      Nice with my planned trades I should be able to bump my numbers a little

      Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:54

      A lot of port/gold coast premos? otherwise I am not sure how that is possible

      Jack · 28/05/2018 at 21:10

      19 Round 13 premos playing? Is that right now? Even assuming you're full premo that would only be 3 missing??!! Gawn, Grundy, Howe, Hurley, Smith, Oliver, Cognlio etc you only have 3 of these guys?

        BlueBaggerJosh · 28/05/2018 at 22:15

        this is after my trades throughout bye rounds where i will reach full premo. Currently have 17 premos in round 13 but that will increase to 19. All other bye rounds are currently accurate. And yes i only have Gawn, Cogs and Smith

    SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 20:49

    Rd12- 16
    Rd13- 17
    Rd14- 15

    Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 20:53

    Rd 12 – 13
    Rd 13 – 11
    Rd14 – 11

    But have 580k an alot of fat cows so i'll up them figures before the byes

      SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 21:08

      Gonna be tight! Byes start next week

        Maverick_ · 28/05/2018 at 21:31

        yeah will go T.Kelly to rocky this week and ZGL to T.Smith leaving 690k bank.
        I can then upgrade 2-3 next week to premos hopefully Gray, simpson and walters.
        fingers crossed it all pans out!

        Could even go a henry to T.Smith make another 70k on my 690k.

        leaving me 2-3 short of premium & 13 trades remaining for rd 13.

          SC_Sixty6 · 28/05/2018 at 22:05

          Nice I'm sick of ZGL he's gone for rocky via spargo and Higgins out for Smith.

    DavidSA · 28/05/2018 at 21:26

      Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 22:45

      How do you all have so much am I missing something?

        RobDog · 30/05/2018 at 00:16

        Pretty sure that most of these are forecasts of what will be after trades during the byes.

        For instance, SC_Sixty6 has 19 premo's ATM, if you include Gibbs and JJK, with a bye breakdown of Rd12/13; Rd13/15 & Rd14/11.

        So to have 16, 17 & 15 he must be giving the forecast of what he plans to have, not what his team is as it stands.

    Harry Penhall · 29/05/2018 at 09:41

    i have 13-13-12 at the moment

CalebCripps922 · 28/05/2018 at 20:27

Option 1 Fritsch to Walters

Option 2 T.Kelly to J.Kelly or Treloar or M.Crouch
Or Curnow or someone else? If option 2 which one? Any help appreciated community.
Option 3 Fritsch to Westhoff

    Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 20:56

    Kelly to Walters an option?

      CalebCripps922 · 28/05/2018 at 21:04

      Could do that actually. I’ll think about it

Rivo · 28/05/2018 at 20:58

2400 and back into the top 5000. Lucky to have the Grundy VC that really helped.

18 trades now and $36k. Honestly stuck on trade decisions this week, with byes a worry. Team below…

D: Lloyd, Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Hibberd, Murray (Ridley, Duman),
M: Fyfe,Danger, Cripps, Titch, Cogs, Dusty, Zerrett, T.Kelly (Spargo, Phillips, Garlett);
R: Gawn, Grundy (Olango);
F: Heeney, Lambert, Smith, Fritsch, Petrappa, Higgins (Henry, Keefe).

Targets considering this week include Boak, Rocky, T.Smith, Simpson, Walters.

What to do? Any help appreciated….

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/05/2018 at 21:21

I've got two trade options this week, one safe and one risky:

Safe option = Kelly up to Cripps and Finlayson down to T.Smith (via Keefe), leaving me with 270k and enough to upgrade Higgins to Boak next week.


Risky option = Kelly down to Rockliff and Finlayson down to T.Smith (via Keefe), leaving me with 490k in the bank.

Currently have the risky option locked in but will no doubt reverse my trades 100 times this week. What does the community think?

    Tyruddanaut · 28/05/2018 at 21:24

    Ont get Crippa this week. He will go down approx 30k over the next couple weeks

      Defying_Madness · 28/05/2018 at 21:27

      I highly doubt he will drop at all. His BE is 107 and I could see him pumping out a 150 next week

    Dildor · 29/05/2018 at 08:51

    Cripps has a round 12 bye, i'd suggest waiting until after that to bring him in. I dont see the point in bringing him in for 1 game to see him sit on the pine next week

      AuroraBorealis?! · 29/05/2018 at 10:21

      I agree with your point, however Kelly is my last mid spot, and if I don’t trade in a premo this week then he will drop in price too much for me to trade him in. That being said I am looking at treloar and gaff as alternative cheaper options

AB13 · 28/05/2018 at 22:00

Too many trades to make, yet only two allowed per week …

My team currently has 145K in the bank and 14 trades

Def: Lloyd, Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Mirra, Ridley, (Mihocek, Keeffe)

Mid: Oliver, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Coniglio, Macrae, Kelly, Spago (bench, Fogarty, Crowden, O'connor)

Ruck: Gawn NicNat (Olango)

Fwd: McLean, Gray, Heeney, Smith, Fritsch, Petracca (Stephenson, Rayner)

The last two premo mids I need are Cripps and Fyfe so that area isn't a major concern at the moment.

I can either go

Kelly to Walters and Rayner to Smith

Stephenson to Smith and Mihocek to Brayshaw

Stephenson to Smith and Kelly to Fyfe/Cripps

I'm leaning towards the second option because it does reduce my risk of having two rookies on field. Although it does mean I'm taking a huge L when the Demons bye comes around considering I have no shot of covering Brayshaw, Spargo, Oliver, Gawn, Petracca, Fritsch. In saying that it does feel like a shame to not pickup Walters and Rocky when their price and B/e's are low.

thoughts Community

    Dale · 28/05/2018 at 22:50

    Can make 3 trades per Rd over rounds 12-14. & option 3 for me. Kelly will bleed cash he looks sore and not gettin to the centre bounces. Get in Fyfe or Cripps depending on BE and cash. Bulk that midfield up it’s where ya make the points

Steeeve · 29/05/2018 at 00:20

Who would you rather trade out to bring in Walter's?
Charlie Curnow or Christian Petracca?

    Russty_ · 29/05/2018 at 01:05

    Petracca I reckon Steve, had such a great start to the season too…and then turned into a pile of crud, Curnow has only had the one ton as well but with all the talent at the Dees, points are getting shared around but Petracca doesn't seem to be getting his share.

    theRealPod · 29/05/2018 at 06:29

    I would dump Petracca out of those two. Curnow isn't setting the world on fire mainly due to poor performances by the Blues but is more likely to produce a big score occasionally.

Ando · 29/05/2018 at 00:45

Fritsch to T Smith & T Kelly to Treloar

Yay or nay?

    JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 02:02

    I wouldn't be trading out Fritsch just now, still has coin to make, in his last five games he has scored 90, 65, 98, 87, 87 so good enough to keep on the field, plus the Dees play in the bye rd 14. Who are your other fwd rookies ?

      Ando · 29/05/2018 at 12:58

      Cheers for your input John. Thinking of getting rid of Henry before Fritsch now.

        JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 13:46

        That's the way I would go, but also do you have a dpp player like Spargo or Higgins in the fwds and say Barry in the mids, then you could trade out Barry instead.

          Ando · 30/05/2018 at 00:50

          Yeah, I've got Spargo and Barry. Thanks for your help John!

    theRealPod · 29/05/2018 at 06:26

    Looks good Ando. Fritsch has made enough to swap for another Dees player in T Smith, and Treloar an excellent POD.

      Ando · 29/05/2018 at 12:59

      Cheers Pod. Thinking of getting rid of Henry before Fritsch now though. Thoughts?

        NoLanguage · 29/05/2018 at 14:32

        Henry before Fritsch

T.Kelly to danger or rocky?

    Go Danger, depends on RD14 byes…how many premo mids do you have already?

      b_sh3p · 29/05/2018 at 10:19

      Cheers FFC. This trade will leave me with 1 premium mid spot. Fyfe, Oliver, Neale, Cripps, macrae, Mitchell atm.

      b_sh3p · 29/05/2018 at 10:23

      I should also say going to rocky I'll have $500k banked for double upgrade

Daniel · 29/05/2018 at 09:32

Treloar, Gaff, Cotchin, Curnow or Oliver?

    FFC · 29/05/2018 at 10:03

    Oliver for me

    b_sh3p · 29/05/2018 at 10:25

F: McLean Gray Heeney D.Smith, Fristch Ronke (Langdon, L.Keefe)

Options considering are:
Trade Out S.Murray and T.Kelly for Westhoff and T.Smith, will need to swing L.Keefe into Defence to make this happen). It will leave Westhoff in Mid for a week or two whilst I wait for Fristch/Ronke to hit their limit then bring in a premo mid. This leaves me with 289k in bank. Downside is minimal defence coverage with subs and i miss out on Rockliff/Walters.

Second option.
T.Kelly to Rockliff and Langdon to T.Smith.

Very important decisions,

Def: lloyd, yeo, laird, hibberd simpson, X

Fwd: gray, menegola, heeney, taranto, mclean, X

Who do I get in last lines of defense and forwards, price and byes dont matter

    smart as s · 29/05/2018 at 15:00

    I am leaning towards two of sicily, hurley and devon smith, is there anyone essential im missing?

    Beezneez · 29/05/2018 at 16:39

    Sicily D Smith forward. Webster Ryan or Hurley defence.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/05/2018 at 17:20

    Ryan and Smith

    r_calve · 29/05/2018 at 21:08

    webster sicily or hurley
    boak, westhoff or smith

    Lazza · 30/05/2018 at 00:22

    I’d suggest you need 2 in each line before finals .. Neither Hibberd or Taranto will bring it home for you.
    Two of Sicily, Ryan or Webster up back, with two of Walters, The Hoff or Sicily up front.
