PODCAST: WE NEED MORE TRADES

Published by Lekdog & Patch on

There are too many options this week. Too. Many. Options.

We’ve got blokes coming off their bye – your Tommy Rockliffs, your Justin Westhoffs, your Robbie Grays. We’ve got blokes we need to fix up our bye structures in round 12 – your Kade Simpsons, your Toby McLeans. We’ve got the cheapies – your Michael Walters, Dustin Martins, Angus Brayshaws. We’ve got the essential rookies – your Tim Smiths, your Bailey Rices, your Jordan Ripleys.

WE NEED MORE TRADES.

We just can’t do it all this week.

So, Lekdog and Patch try and figure out what to do. They try to prioritise, they try to figure it out, they get down and dirty to throw some mud around and sees what sticks.

Chuck in some earbuds, crack open a beverage of choice and get ready for the chaos that is round 11.

Unrelated to SuperCoach but is it just me or did Darcy Gardiner just get away with blue murder??? IMO he managed to punch Hayward in the head twice in the scuffle in the last quarter – escaped with a $1500 fine…
Thoughts on the footage community!

WTFoxtrot_58

Saw that in a brief bit of footage about the game…waiting to hear more about it.
Your comment is the first mention of it anywhere.
The glimpse I got I was expecting it to be Mitch Robinson..

Tyruddanaut

I have looked so much at bringing in R12 byes, I have neglected the R13 players. None on my watchlist

Andy

Robinson and Stewart or
Franklin and Simpson

Connor

Some POD's are okay but you need to recognise when you reach a stage that you're doing it just for the sake of doing it…
Option 2

Patch

No need to jump down the guy's throat – he's just asking!

As said by both replies here Andy, number two sounds the go mate. Robinson a sneaky pod but I don't trust Stewart at all.

theRealPod

Robbo and Simmo because they sound so Aussie.

Sc_Wow

Might want to edit the pod boys, around the 29 minute mark

Patch

Cheers mate, updated

Sc_Wow

All good, i thought I was going crazy haha

Jordan

Dom Barry to Rockliff
Or
Guelfi to Mitch Robinson?

fcabel

The former

theRealPod

If only we could predict long range weather forecast for wherever Robinson plays. He goes to uber level in the wet.

Derek

Put a line through Ryder. Read he isn’t even training during the week.

Haven’t had to look at other Rucks, so thought I better have a sqiz.

Grundy is $620k. That is a big number. I had a look at his scores, they also are very large. Very impressive and clearly top 2 rucks in game.

Or is he?

I will play the devils avocado again.

Looking through his numbers, he has beat up on the little blokes. Scored massive against GWS, Geelong & Buldogs, but everyone does, they don’t have any decent ruckmen.

He got Carlton when Kruzer was injured, and everyone knows Jacobs isn’t much spit.

If you look at his games against the half-decent ruckmen, he has scored 95 (Mceroy), 113 (TBC), 115 (Nank), 110 (Stef) & 109 (Hickey). I use the term half-decent very loosely. Averages 110 against the B graders.

Hasn’t really come up against any of the A Graders.

That is about to change. Have a look at his next 7 matches.

Sandilands, Gawn, Kruzer, Witts, TBC, NicNat & Goldy.

I’m not expecting him to average even 110.

Staying away at his price.

dognino

I’d think a majority of his points aren’t scored from ruck contests themselves. Avg 22 possessions a game , nearly 10 of the contested, nearly 5 clearances a game, nearly 5 tackles a game and an average of 220 metres gained per game. Him and Gawn, clear top 2 ruckman in my book.

Derek

Good point Dognino.

Jack

It's a good point but also your point still had some merit. His hitouts to advantage will drop against quality ruckmen.
It's very possible that Grundy & Kreuzer both average ~110 from here on. Can't really see another option, unless NicNats tog increases

Derek

WCE arnt going to change a winning formula. NicNat TOG of about 60% is working really well. Won’t change.

Vardy will be back soon as well

Russty_

No love for Nicnat Derek?…he's going ok with limited gametime, will probably have a few crazy big scores too.

Derek

I’m worried that WCE are going well and won’t go away from what is working well for them. NicNat starts each quarter and plays about 10 mins, then has a rest and comes back for the last 7ish mins of the quarter as fresh as a daisy. It is working. Plus Vardy is close to returning.

Jack

So we wait 2 more weeks Derek, he plays 2 of the best big bastards in the business. If he averages 100 the next 2 it's enough for me, I'll bring him in after his bye.
It sucks that Lycett has his bye before him though
Who is your alternative now that Ryder is not?

Derek

I will look at them all and see. Even Witts who has Cats, GWS & Saints next 3.

Randomcliche2

I'd look at Kruez, think he's the best value atm

Derek

I think i'll go with Kruzer. also lets me go Finlayson to Walters (even though i'll be cutting it close for round 14)

Randomcliche2

Nice one. I started him, but alas the injury struck. I can't warrant the Nic/Nat back to Kreuz atm, Nic Nat BE to low, I don't make $ from it, if Nic Nat TOG goes up he can match Kreuz…. perhaps a bye round switcheroo trade….hmmm.

Lazza

Sandilands unlikely to play this week..

Derek

Just a bit of a head knock. He should play.

Lazza

Cool.
Source was a injury update on SEN last night… Nothing formal..

fcabel

I've come to the same conclusion with Nank on board. Kreuz coming into form may be the answer.

easy 1

Just grab the Hoff

Derek

Don’t think the Hoff is a Ruck.

SC_Sixty_6

I've got 1 rookie upgrade left (Fritsch to McLean after round 12), but also got Goldspud to trade out during the bye's. Would love Grundy but Kreuz or Nic Nat 100k cheaper is a lot easier to trade to, especially a round 13 bye ruck for a round 12.

Love your Grundy analysis Derek, more food for thought

Brissy bombers

Sandy officially ruled out by freo.. gee whiz

prizza

Gee whiz grundy along side gawn would have to mean jackpot surelyl

Ryan

Travis boak or westhoff ? Both pods! Both very consistent this year.. thoughts

Jack

Westhoff. Boak averaged 85 last year and I don't believe his role has changed since then.
Westhoff has averaged in the 90's before and has benefitted this year from Ryder missing which may happen again going off Derek's post.

seen_burns

Both are great picks I believe, but yeah have to agree with ya the Hoff will probably be the better pick out of the two

Dildor

Boak's a big game player and the power are travelling well, think they have a few big games a head going into the pointy end. Something to consider maybe.

Derek

There is always the Chad

fcabel

Has a good history. Cheap as chips. You think he can bring it home?

Derek

Patch will burn our houses down if he knew we were even discussing him.

SC_Sixty_6

High risk, high reward

theRealPod

Boak good avg at AO. Port playing about 8 games at AO 2nd half of season.

Defying_Madness

My problem with regards to Rocky without mentioning his injury history is that he is a mid. My midfield is fine for the byes and I think I have only 1 donut in the midfield over all 3 weeks. I am in need of a forward premo from port/gc so if Gray tonnes up this week and plays enough midfield I will be bringing him in next week. I will be watching Hawks vs Port very closely considering I will be at the game.

Randomcliche2

Looking forward to your report back…although I've held Gray and just bought Rocky this week.

Jim

Heading down to Tassie are we?

Rivo

Considering a somewhat safer play this week.

T.Kelly & Garlett to Boak & T.Smith.

Josh

Is Walters a must this week?

Swans2012

Behind smith and rocky for me

Jack

There's about 5 must haves this week, yet we only have 2 trades so depends on your own team I think. I'm bringing.him in with Smith

Lazza

He is a must every week

redherringfc

I had a look at his numbers from last year and decided that Buddy is better value at the moment.

Derek

Buddy can't even train during the week. that must be a worry

Skindog

far too injury prone, id look elsewhere

Randomcliche2

Held him. 🙂 But yeah, there are like 5 musts but ultimately comes down to do you need to generate more cash to get to full premo, or are you there with the rookies you have. If the latter then Rocky, Walters, Hall, all have rediculous BE's and a few other premo mids are very juicy. But remember to look past BE's to see if they meet your strategy…I know someone who nearly bought a buble ruck last week who went on to score 25…be careful its a jungle out there.

Steve

Would anyone consider Ed Curnow to be a good pick up?

Carlton have the softest draw in the comp after the bye and he averages 117 without Murphy in the side this year.

Or would you rather go for someone life Dusty, Gaff or Treloar?

Cheers community

Lazza

Great POD .. he and Gaff are incredibly consistent, but ceiling not as high as the other two.. I guess it depends on how many boom/bust players you have… the consistent scorers underpin your team.

Dale

Fantastic pod. I can’t split rocky and ed curnow been eyeing him off till his bye for 2-3 weeks now. The suspension was handy

Jordan

Rockliff or Mitch Robinson?

theRealPod

Both have huge ceilings but Rocky hasn't reached that height for awhile. Both injury prone but I would go Robbo out of the two.

Skindog

Robbo over Rocky for me, Rocky looking half the man he used to be, soft like Pie (dog) but im going a massive pod thats on the rise in Lever!!

Jack

Rockliff had 68% tog in China. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Nice PPM, but is he still carrying injury?

Russty_

Probably, I think he's held together by $2 shop sticky tape.

Jack

They might have got a better price for it in China!

SC_Kev7

Wouldn't overthink it, Jack. Been high 60's / low 70's TOG 5/6 games at Port so far.

Dale

Is T.smith really that much of a must? It wouldn’t be the first time a rookie has scored big till his bubble then flopped? I really don’t know much about his playing role & JS. Feel free to fill me in.

I want Walters and rocky but don’t wanna miss smith if his a must.

Mick

His BE is -118, coming toward the pointy end of the season many of us will only trade down a handful more rooks to fill out the team. A guy who even if he avgs 65 from here on that will be $350k is pretty damn valuable imo.

paul

He is 27 a ready made player and in a team going to score big on the way up. The probability of him averaging 80/90 with the variables in place is very high.

TommyC99

Thoughts on Findlayson/Duman – T Smith (keeffe into defence) and Kelly – Rockliff?

Russty_

I'm doing similar mate, will make some good bank and hopefully Smith is the real deal and Rocky doesn't crumble into dust!

Nick

!!!! HELP !!!

ROCKLIFF OR WALTERS???

Who should be first priority? I want walters but already have 2 premo forwards and 3 premo mids with the round 14 bye.

What are your thoughts community

Russty_

Hey Nick, unless you're ranked right up there, and you mainly play for rank, I reckon just get who you want and be prepared for one bad bye round, if it's mainly Leagues you play for, why bring a bunch of guys in you wouldn't normally want just to get your score up there?
The byes don't affect you too much if it's mainly Leagues you play for, you might cop one or even two losses in the byes and can still win your league at the end of it.
Cheers.

Derek

Rocky won’t be a top 10 mid.

Walters is very likely to be a top 8 forward.

Easy choice, but need to think about the byes, so will look at him again after his bye if he hasn’t re-injured his knee again.

Ando

Fritsch to T Smith & T Kelly to Treloar

Yay or nay?

Russty_

Hey Ando, Fritsch is going pretty well though, any other spuds you could offload?..I'd go yoyo Henry before Fritz.

Ando

Yeah I've got Henry. Cheers Russty!

Russty_

Naughton should be back this week, if anyone's interested, saw an article and video on the Bulldog's website.

Lazza

I traded him last week.. had to.. to field back line.. bought in Yeo and Ridley

DEES NUTS R BIG

Supercoach defenders on the cheap
Rice VS Ridley (this week), Heroin VS Austin (next week)
Who ya taking?

Redpill5

Heroin

Jack

I took Rice last week and will take Heron over Austin if I need another defensive rookie.

BadgerHoney7

if it was me I would do rice and heroin

JohnDJ59

I've traded in Rice this week, Heron next week.

DEES NUTS R BIG

Tommy Rockliff Supercoach SlapNuts – Trade him in suckas!

ROB14

Tom Phillips? What are people's thoughts? Looking at him, Heppell or Selwood as a cheap POD

theRealPod

Phillips an interesting one, I think next season a real chance of going next level. Massive tank but just not quite elite mid yet.

ROB14

Hmmm I just can't decide, if you take away that game that got KO'd his average would be over 100… Or I bring in Walters and Rockliff and miss out on Smith… Tough decision

theRealPod

Phillips 5 game avg is 110+ so if you decide to go with him he's a bargain at $500k.

Beezneez

I've looked at him and he is tempting. I'm looking to see how Crouch or J Kelly go in the next few weeks for my final mid spot – even though I traded both out previously. Personally, I would pick him as a POD before Hurley and Selwood but it's kinda toss of the coin.

Beezneez

Ps Heppell not Hurley

The Ranger

I'd take Selwood out of those three.
Pendles is cheap too.

TheGreatBozza

Love Flippa!! I just think there are some stronger options out there. I 100% think he is one to watch for the future.
As I pies fan i see him as a mix between Swanny & Gaff, but i'm biased

JohnDJ59

I like Heppell av 103, no bad games, he's on my watchlist for my last mid upgrade.

ROB14

Stuff it, I'm going with my gut and backing in Phillips… Fortune favours the brave and I like what hes been doin this year!

Marty

Pies are certainly sharing the ball with so many possessions so it has merit. Would prefer Treloar to Flippa.

ROB14

I wanted treloar but can't scrape up the cash unless I get rid of fritsch

Doc_1

Judging by the feed, NOT taking Rocky is going to be the POD
(and probably not too risky a POD given his injury history).

Cam

Agreed, he won't be a top 8 mid, and although will be handy during the byes do we really have the luxury of burning 2 trades just to make slight profit at this stage of the year

Sc_Wow

Don’t need to trade him out, could become a great m9 which saves an injury trade down the track

Jack

Unless if he gets injured himself

Sc_Wow

Doesn’t matter if he is m9

Derek

Walters would be a great M9/F7 to finish the season with.

Defying_Madness

Walters shouldn't be your bench cover if he is in your team. Will be one of the top forwards this year

Jack

Don't think he will be a pod either way think it will be.close to a 50/50.
I do see the appeal. What's a trade worth? 200k? Or 200 points maybe?
He doesn't have a bye so he could make you 60 points right there (based on him scoring 100 and your lowest rookie 40) Even if he just gets to 500k, would a 130k profit + 60 point gain be worth it?

Ja191

price is irrelevant until you trade him out which will end up costing you 2 trades though

NoLanguage

The amount of people trading him in is mind boggling. More than comfy taking the 'risk' of not getting him

Can

I would like everyone's opinions on who they think the top 6 forwards we going to be.

I'm thinking of picking up gray or Walters this week (i know significant difference in price and breakevens) but am concerned about whether Walters is a top 6 forward.

Also should I lean towards gray because I already have fyfe and mundy? (Don't care about byes cause going for league)

Cheers in advance

Jack

If byes don't matter I'd go Walters cos he is cheaper. If I didn't have Gray I'd wait and see. He looks like he has gone back to a forward role, if he does he is still good enough to average 95ish, but I reckon Walters could do that for cheaper.

As for top6 it's hard for forwards but I'd say:
Must haves (ave100+) Heeney & McLean

Gray a must have ONLY IF playing midfield
Then I'd say any of Smith, Westhoff, Boak, Franklin, Sicily*, Darling
Or if you want a cheaper more risky yet proven player then Josh Kennedy is your man

Derek

Menagola has to be in the calculations. 5 scores over 120+

theRealPod

Absolutely. Can't understand the lack of interest after last season and current form.

Jack

True Derek definitely in there. I knew I left at least 1 out

TheGreatBozza

As long as he stops elbowing and kicking blokes in the head. Lucky to get off

Ja191

remember previous scores are irrelevant it's what they score from now on. Gray with rockey in the side will see a similar output to last year scoring poorly some weeks and some good others (played forward more). Walters averaged 100 until he got injured, absolute bargain for his price. Will finish top 6 if he doesn't get injured, lock him in.

Derek

in the injury report, it said that Walters hurt his knee in the 3rd quarter but was able to finish the game. i didn't see the game, anyone see that?

Cam

Youve convinced me boys, saves me an extra 120k can use to maybe get macrea after bye or gray in a few weeks if I still feel confident.

Will mean I have:
McLean heeney smith mundy Walters.
Can decide who's best to fill last spot later on

DavidSA

Best case senario for Rockliff:
1) he does not get injured
2) he stays in the midfield
3) Ports draw gets easier so expect him to stay Mid and Gray to stay Fwd
4) averages over 105 on the run home
5) if all of the above happens he will be 550k give or take thus made you over 170k

The upside far exceeds the risk
Don't compare the risk to previous years. Pat yourselves on the back you all did not start him this year and reward yourselves with a triple bye cover player who can score way above his current price

JugHead

Even comparing the risk to previous years, I'm fairly positive. I put a lot of weight on recent history.
Last year Rocky played 20 games. Although he didnt have a fantastic average, it was his last year at brisbane and funny things happen with players who are leaving. The year buddy left the hawks, they played him way up the ground to try out gunston etc as deep forwards. But I digress…..
I think a few people are remembering a couple of years previously when rocky yo-yo'd in and out with injuries, burning quite a few along the way. That is now ancient history. He played 20 games last year, by his own admission didn't have a good preseason this year, is 28 years old (ok, a high kilometer 28yo) and is very nicely priced. I think he will work into the rest of the season fine except for pure bad luck.
Lets compare that to someone like Lids, who I wouldn't go anywhere near even before his latest calf injury.
Lids hasn't played 20 games since 2013, is 31 years old and is 100k more.

DavidSA

Good insight

The Ranger

Hehehe…this one is gonna run all week isn't it David?
I genuinely hope he does well cos I love the way he plays but I've just got too many scars.

Jughead, he had surgery on his shoulder after 2017 so I would suggest you can't regard that as ancient history. and he averaged 78 over the last 12 games of 2017.

Swans2012

The 78 average involved the bung shoulder though didn't it? Mid season injury? Can't quite remember

JugHead

Yep, it will run all week…lol. Rockliff is banged up for sure, and the shoulder op no doubt had a lot to do with his preseason.
But as he gets games under his belt now I think he will improve. If you believe his average last season was affected by playing injured, you have to believe he will average higher from now on if he is right. Assuming he continues to play as a mid.
Incidently, this isn't necessarily a recommendation to take Rocky over Walters.
Derek made a good point earlier, that Walters should finish a higher ranked forward than Rocky's mid rank.
I think if you pick Rocky, you are doing it mainly for his price and bye coverage.
If you go Walters its because of that high rank as a fwd and his current price. Also, Walters would make a very good M9/fwd swingman at the pointy end of the season.

Derek

even with the best case, he isn't a top 8 midfielder, therefore he should be traded out at some point.

comes back to the question i ponder a lot…. what is a trade worth?

redherringfc

Say we aim to increase team value by 4 million, divide by 30 trades. You end up around $135k.

But some of the increase (like decrease) is from your initial picks.

If he makes $135k, I’ll be happy.

Johnny

Depending on your cash generation and trades left come finals he could be an M9 for most if he isn’t firing properly . If he goes nuts then happy days….

Derek

walters would be a better M9 with his DPP

Marty

Totally agree with all comments and your question Derek. Is this year a little different as many rookies have made us money? We might have a little more luxury to trade Rocky in and keep him as a M9. I have weighed it up and would prefer one more week to make up my mind and jump on someone else first. Yes that might cost another 20-30k but I'm willing to take that risk.

Ricardo

Armitage Mark II

Ricardo

Averaging 42 if you count the 0's he's scored while missing games. Not close to SC relevant.

DavidSA

he is bye relevant and cash gen relevant and relevant to those who will struggle to have full premo.
You know the ones who held onto Hibberd, Billings or Tracca

JohnDJ59

I had all three David, they are long gone from my team, but I traded Hibbo to Hurley, who then got injured, Hibbo would have been handy for my team on the weekend, with two donuts in the backline.

Lazio

Rockliff will be injured within the next 3 weeks, take that to the bank.
Enjoy a spud score of a 70odd in the meantime.

DavidSA

"🔮" your a magnificent mystical seer!
x4 scores over 85 with x2 over 110 is my prediction over the next 4 weeks

Derek

he does have that 'Delidio' feel about him

Gibbs

Josh Kelly needs to be discussed more, personally after his bye I think he is someone we should all consider.

Averaged 114 last year hasn't reached those heights yet due to his groin, but should be priced 530-550 round 14 Ripe for the taking!

anthdepa7

Agreed, traded him out the other week for some cash flow but at his best and when the giants are playing good football his the man.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Two letters

O P.

Buyer beware.

Russty_

You need to be discussed too Gibbsy, what's with the 3 round average of 83 mate?…you started the season so well too 🙂

prizza

Absolute jet , if he starts breaking the lines again ( like he always has pre injury) this week ,jump on at earliest convenience and team set up of course

Sc_Wow

Hopefully cog continues to benifit from Kelly being in the team too. Wash refreshing seeing him go big again

anthdepa7

Ridley or Rice? #askingforafriend

Jack

Rice

Defying_Madness

Lookat your byes. I have Keefe as my only out in round 13 so I will probably get Ridley if he is named

seen_burns

Rice for JS

SC_Sixty6

I see alot of people trading in Walters and wonder if they really take into account that he isn't 100% and won't be until he has surgery on his PCL that he injured a month back.

From personal experience having done my ACL, PCL and Meniscus it will only take 1 awkward tackle or a twist or a knock and his knee will blow up like a balloon again with the swelling that has already occured. But that's only from personal experience so just my two cents.

He may be cheap but is he another trade waiting to happen. All pre season we look at who are the injury prone player's and try minimise this and so far this week I see ROCKY & WALTERS as inclusions. Think long and hard guys.

BrownlowBoy

He didn't have surgery did he?

Derek

i read the injury report from the weekend and it said that he hurt his knee in the 3rd quarter, but was able to finish the game. i didn't see it, was he limping on it?

Derek

talking about knee injuries… how is Lobb's knee going?

prizza

So you dont have sony, lol , he is slightly built which is an advantage, a good healer as well proven in the past which is an advantage, he will cop his fair share because now in the mids and he has got lets say a bit of mongrel in him and open to big hits but , i already have him and i can take his high ceiling every couple of weeks even if it means looping.
Stay away from him lol.

seen_burns

I agree, feel like he is a bit to fragile especially playing more midfield minutes, may drop off or get another injury later in the year, also having the Rd 14 bye is killer for my team. Even though he is dripping of value, I'll pass and get someone like a Westhoff.

BlueBoy

What are Mirra's chances of getting another game this week?

Have Murphy and Keeffe on bench so I might have to think about cover…

Derek

i thought he had a poor game last week, didn't have the height against WCE. But somehow managed a decent SC score. Port is a better match up for him and i expect him to hold his place.

BlueBoy

Thanks Derek. I didn't get to see the game. Hoping he plays until his bye.

theRealPod

He did look out of place early in that WC game but did improve. He's a work in progress and I think he'll keep his spot for now. Frawley listed as a test with his shoulder and Birch 4 weeks away (has that list been updated?)

Sc_Wow

Had another look at the rocky situation. Not going to risk it

DavidSA

Seems like a lot doing a 180 on him
Community strategy or as the week gets closer peeps letting the history of burn from him settle in.

I know it's different in your situation… you have to consider how many will jump on him who are ranked in the top 1k
Would be more benificial for you to pass on him I think

Rockliff is a great selection for those who are struggling with byes and can foresee that they are struggling to get full premo

Sc_Wow

Yep if I pass on him I can get smith and a legitimate premo midefeilder to finish my 8

DavidSA

if I was in your possition I would not fluff around and go hard bro
Hope you finish top 3 👍

Sc_Wow

Cheers mate, keen to see where I am at after byes. Feel like my structure is good

Whatyasmokin

Flipside to the struggling to get full premo reasoning is that Rocky could just guarantee that failure for many. Better off just continuing to paint the fence with reliable premos. I see Rocky as a bonus option for those doing well and could even be their M10.

Sc_Wow

I think he’s going two ways, people using him as a luxury player in the byes, which is fine if you have plenty of trades, and plan to still have plenty of trades afterwards.

However I think there are just as many out there that are running low on cash and see rocky as a bargain m8, this is too big of a risk for me.
If you have plenty of cover in your byes the trade to rocky may not be necessary as we have seen a lot of rookies who can pump out 100’s this year

Crowboy94

Same

Derek

Rocky is for those who are short on cash and ready to throw their ‘hail Marry’ for the season.

Short on cash he is a good option

neil demons delight

congratulations to wow and 66 for these recent posts This is the wow/66 that we all want. As I have said before your knowledge is football fantasy is second to none. and that post about walters knee was a delight. Keep this up and forget all the crap and you wtll wen ppl back .Well done lad//s

gator59

A very wise move

Sc_Wow

Cheers, thought to myself why not just bring a premo mid in and play a rookie for their bye round

gator59

Now you've got your thinking cap on Wow

prizza

Wowzer you just made 100000 supercoachers hit the reverse button lol.
Might wait one more week myself and see how the rocky gray thing works as there may not be room for both.

Crowboy94

Interested to hear what you guys think of my team:

Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Simpson, McGovern, Crisp (Duman, Murphy)

Dangerfield, MaCrae, Mitchell, Fyfe, Cripps, Crouch, Merrett, Holman (Spargo, Barry, Phillips)

14 trades and 179k

Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

Heeney, Mclean, Westhoff, Fritsch, Billings, Smith (Guelfi, Keefe)

Sc_Wow

Might struggle a little in rd12, its different though

DavidSA

18-19 keepers is par around this time.
The top 5k teams all have 19-20 keepers right now.

Jack

I'm top 3k David and I only have 17 keepers.
Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Howe, Doedee, Rice (Murphy, Keefe)
Macrae, Cripps, Danger, Titch, Martin, Fyfe, Oliver, Walters (Phillips, Barry, Worpel)
Gawn, Lycett (McInnerly)
McLean, Gray, Heeney, Smith, Fritsch, Smith (Spargo, Guelfi)

DavidSA

I see 18 but well done on your rank mate

Steeeve

I am 2k and have only 16 keepers because I am not including Goldstein, Charlie Curnow or Petracca

JohnDJ59

Trade out Billings and it will look even better.

JugHead

For those who use footywire to get a lot of their info (for those that don't, you should, its very handy)…. footywire lists Rocky as dpp. He isn't. He is mid only in SC site.

Pod

That is based on AFL FANTASY

John

Hey boys would love your thoughts on my team

Laird Simpson Lloyd Sicily mirra (Keefe murphy)

Danger fyfe Mitchell Martin cogs cripps merret Walters (spargo Barry Phillips)

Gawn Martin (cameron)

McLean heeney smith mundy Fritsch Henry (Smith zgl)

15 trades left 330k in the bank

Thanks in advance

Sam_01

Need to fix up your backline next week or you will cop a few 0s in first bye potentially mirra to Hurley if he is back next week? Or hope you can gather some playing rookies
Also second bye you cop a double 0 in the ruck and your fwd you will have 2 0’s with current structure look to trade fristch in the coming weeks could go fristch to yeo after his bye via sicily swing then when you upgrade mirra you can grab a backman or swing Sicily back to finnish defence and grab a fwd

Steeeve

I'm bringing in Smith for Dom Barry.

Then can't decide whether to bring in Walters for Petracca or Rice for Naughton.

If I choose not to take Rice or Ridley, I will be hoping Heron and Austin are worth picking up the week after for a defensive double downgrade.

Dice_real

I wouldn't miss Walters at this price

Steeeve

That's how I feel.
I have Petracca and Charlie Curnow (who has not exceeded 86 since I brought him in after round 2) so Walters is going to help me cut a fake premo.

Hope those defence rookies perform well again next week.

Would you trade out Petracca (352k be45) or Curnow (402k be103)?

Dice_real

I'm keeping Petracca till his round 13 bye then gonna trade his arse, All goes to plan he's my last upgrade, the last 2 weeks he's been ok.
Depends on your coin, if struggling give Charles the flick with that b/e

Steeeve

If Naughton is back Walter's will have to wait anyway. Will play it by ear

Keenbutclueless

See Kobe Mutch is likely to be missing for a number of weeks. Headaches apparently. Was surprised he was dropped. Guess we know why.

Johnny

Any love for Mitch Robinson? Or Dayne beams?

Dice_real

Robbo could be a bloody magnificent pod. Scores big when gets 30+ posis coz of his contested work.
I like it

gator59

I like the Robbo this week

Russty_

Beamsy could be a good pod also Johnny, still struggling mentally with the death of his Dad but he pumped out a nice score last week after relinquishing the Captaincy to Zork

prizza

Can robbo behave , thats the big question, otherwise he is bringing it every week

Johnny

Have started beamsy the last 5yrs and feel incomplete without him in my side. But u feel Robinson is a bit smarter at this point with his dpp also.

Ahmad rubas

He is calmed down since joining Brisbane. Used to be a real hot head who would give away too many frees at Carlton now has cooled down a lot probably due to having children in his life now

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Just a thought.
The next bye is rd 12 not rd 11 so if u are looking for coverage aka rocky you don't need him till next week.
Sure he may go up $30k but so will one of your rooks.
Give him another week and reassess.
Thats the plan.

Russty_

Hey Trig, was thinking the same, normally wouldn't touch mr glassbody but if he whacks out another ton this week I might be tempted.

BlueBaggerJosh

Will be in an awkward position next week, still don't have Yeo or McLean but can't trade them in yet, will probably have to settle with the hoff and hope they both get cheaper in time for me to trade Doedee and Mirra to them

redherringfc

I’d suggest you wait until round 13 to get Yeo, unless you’re swapping him for a player who also has a round 12 bye.

Juzzy

I know I shouldn’t but …
Open letter to SC and 66.
G’Day Community. In years gone by I have been a regular reader/poster here. I left that alone after the two self-appointed geniuses appeared. My 15 minute smoke and coffee break turned quite less pleasurable.
Supercoach is simple … pick a decent team, buy low, sell high, have a strategy, and enjoy the games on the weekend. It is Grade 3 maths. Also , and here’s where I find this interesting, it’s subjective. Anyone in life who will belittle or judge others for a subjective opinion immediately exposes themselves as ignorant and narcissistic. Hence … Every time I read one of your inflammatory posts I picture a child screaming “Everyone should know I am better than them at Grade 3 maths !” You are not curing cancer.
I would not have bothered had you not gone out of your way to chip away at community members who have been contributing for years. I cannot for the life of me figure out what you are hoping to achieve. Whatever that goal is you seem close. If it’s worth burning down a happy place then go at it.

Dice_real

Love it Juzzy. The funny thing is they don't realize we all have this opinion

Mystic_Mac

Bang on.

Jack

My 2 cents.
Alot of their posts at the start of the year I didn't agree with. Mainly ones directed at the admin and writers of this site. I recall Kev copping it for rank last year, which I didn't like because I really enjoy reading his panic room article. Lek & Patch copped a bit early on (from more than these 2 tbh) for their podcast which I though was way out of line.
However, to be fair of recent times their only posts which seem to be upsetting people are when people have a go at them first and they stand up for themselves/each other.
So my advice would be everyone continues along being positive to each other for the best of the community alike.

Rick Grimes

They have improved, but typically the post will read as follows;

Joe bloggs: "what do I do with billings?"
66/wow: "can't believe you picked him the first place.
Joe bloggs: "thought he'd keep up his 2017 form.
66/wow: "rookie mistake. Terrible pick".
Joe Bloggs: "steady on, mate. What makes you such an expert".
66/wow: "look at my rank. Top 100 soon. Flog".
Joe Bloggs: ***closes page***

neil demons delight

Agree Rick they have got better but like sicily can they remain FLOGLESS I hope so because lets face it they are both or one good at it but so are pieman and Tophawk Give him a chance NDD

Rick Grimes

Will do, NDD. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance.

smart as s

I totally agree, i reckon wow and 66 are two oversized keyboard warriors who dont have much going on in this beautiful lives of ours. Looking back at articles, their comments are everywhere attacking others or boasting themselves. Looking back in the next few years, they will ask themselves where did time go and how much more they could have done for themselves, their family and friends#YOLO

Sc_Wow

smart ass you have no idea mate. Building a house completing masters degree working full time. I’d say I’m pretty busy and that I look out for my family. My life is great. It’s been pointed out here that we started aggressively, something that I have apologised for. More recently we are defending our selfs, which you would expect anyone on here to do if they were getting singled out.
Think twice before you assume people’s personal life’s, you know nothing about me

Mystic_Mac

The boy who cried wolf.

Sc_Wow

You think I’m lying? Sound a bit jealous mate
What exactly do you bring to this community Mac other than joining in on the digs directed towards 66 and I? Get a new hobby and get over it like everyone else is

Mystic_Mac

I bring the spirit of the fighting Irish.. If one of us goes to war, we all go to war.

smart as s

I have 2 masters from latrobe and utas no s******g and working full time in a lab, somehow i dont hav that much time to comment on everyone n everything every two minutes.

Sc_Wow

Sounds like we’re in similar fields

Russty_

Sounds like you're both smart, and can pish really far…(pishing contest even)…try and combine both your ample talents for good rather than evil lol.

smart as s

Gave too much information, surely my sc rival knows who i am now

stevo

Jimmy Webster gonna be busy this week.

INPieman

SC Elites league ranked 28th overall. Well done fellas

gator59

Yep and climbing Pieman

NDD's A Graders is 29th too

Sc_Wow

Would love to join some of your leagues next year I like a good challenge. I’m in ruustys league and that’s my toughest one

Sam_01

How did you score this week wow ?

Sc_Wow

A tad under 2400

neil demons delight

Been away gat haven't seen you here lately. What do you think of rice and don't say I like mine friend NDD

gator59

Fried Rice is good Neil, The other Rice is good too…The only Saints worth bringing in are the rookies

neil demons delight

meant fried but you woke to it. Rice next week

gator59

All good mate go for it

TRIGGA_HAPPY

With pie leading the way …. 👍

hedski

Great league, playing you in it this round Pie, finally hit a bit of form so hoping for a cracking match up!
Shake and Bakes "Up there Cazaly" league ranked 44, playing Shake this round too.
JUICY.

gator59

Knew you would come good Hedski.. Keep it up mate

hedski

Ha ha, it took a couple of floggings from ya Gator but I finally got one back <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt; You're flying mate, climb those ranks.

gator59

All good mate we can't win them all and great to have good banter from great opposition

Considering the start I had while holidaying in Tassie with no internet and trading to get back in the game

Shake_n_Bake_

What trades are you looking at doing this week Hedski?

hedski

Ha ha. Pretty vanilla shake, smith in, not sure on the other one yet.

Shake_n_Bake_

Im looking at two playing rookies Rice and Smith for Garlett and Murphy dont think those two will get a look in over the bye rds. Need as many players playing in the coming month.

hedski

D.Fog to Smith for me, then upgrade TK, either Walters for value or a Treloar/Oliver type.
Liking Walters, leaves me $140k and can swing him fwd when Fritsch ready to cull at his bye, bring a mid in then.
Bit worried about his knee tho.

Shake_n_Bake_

Looks like it will be alot tougher to beat you this yr Hedski!! But ill do my best!!

INPieman

We've had some cracking battles over the years Hedski. Always enjoyed & no love lost in the match up

BrownlowBoy

That's my league Pieman! With blokes like you, Patch and Damo leading the way! A very competitive league.

INPieman

You might need an entrance fee in the future BB. Well assembled

stevo

Now that's a COMMUNITY, good job fellas.

Skindog

great league, all must enjoy fingeringpiesmumliketherestofus, although she likesthefistingthesedays

Russty_

Saw this on the AFL website…not included is that Darcy Parish is also ruled out for 2 months..

In a further blow for the Bombers, a calf injury will see defender Patrick Ambrose ruled out until at least until round 14.

Michael Hurley is expected to be back after missing the past two weeks with a hamstring injury as Essendon faces reigning premiers Richmond on Saturday night.

Youngster Kobe Mutch is unlikely to play again this weekend after a series of headaches in recent weeks.

Could mean Ridley keeps his spot for a bit longer for those who have him.

Sc_Wow

All I see is HURLEY is back yewwww

Dildor

Ridley is a gun. Watched him play a VFL game last year where he had 29 disposals at 100%. His ball use is out of this world. Came first at the draft combine for kicking too. Hope essendon keep playing the kid, he's a 100 ave of 18 touches player just waiting to happen.

Kane

Russty_ I'm pretty unlucky with that Cripps captain pick last round that we agreed on. I got 2457 and lost head to head by 30points. He had M. Robinson…. like wtf.

Rivo

Looking at he thread of comments on trade options, it appears that trading in a mid/fwd premo is wiser. Can bring Rocky in next week if needed. Thoughts please???

Option 1: T.Kelly & Higgins to McLean & T.Smith
Option 2: T.Kelly & Garlett to Boak & T.Smith
Option 3: T.Kelly & Garlett to Walters & T.Smith

Rick Grimes

Option 1 for mine.

Rivo

Cheers Rick. Doesn’t leave me too much cash but McLean is a lock top 6 fwd.
