THE STANDING ROOM Round 14

Published by Patch on

We’re nearly there. Just one more game to go – ONE MORE – before we’re done and dusted with the byes for 2018.

How are you faring? Did any mad bastards bring in Shaun Higgins or Benjamin Brown? They were on absolute FIRE last night in a cracking game of footy between the Dogs and the Roos.

Josh Kelly, The Bont, Clayton Oliver, BIG MAXY GAWN have all combined for good to very good scores, meaning some people out there will have a massive total at the end of lockout this week… unless you captained Tom Mitchell. (Tom, really?? How could you do this to us)

How are you travelling? Who do you need to stand up in Carlton vs Collingwood at the G? Who did you captain? What are your moves next week?

Pull up a chair, pour yourself a drink and have a good old chinwag, community.

I'm at a 1605 with Cripps and Simpson to play. Titch C hurt, Yeo VC didn't come to fruition. Dang it.

Shake_n_Bake_

1705 with Cripps & Simpson to come Got in Goldy made him C after Mitchell was just ok. I hope both Cripps & Simpson ton up but lose to my pies by 10 goals!!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

100 less than u patch with cc to come.
Cripps and crisp.
Byes have been an absolute mare! Non bye premos missing have really stung.
U werent on your pat malone yesterday with the C on Titch. Went the VC on clarry. 🙄
Good news is I am full premo so now up to the lads to stand and deliver !

JEL

1399 with Simpson to play and Gawn's VC score to be added

Snacking on a couple of donuts this week

Isaac

Accidentally traded in Cameron last week for Spargo. Looks like he's set for at least four weeks on the sidelines so will probably have to trade him? Thoughts on any good foward options from 430-470k

fcabel

McLean, De Goey, Billings, Anderson, Walters, Smith,

Blueth

watch de goey get 130 today then trade him in ASAP

Rowen

1570 with Howe, Simpson and Cripps to come. Should be getting 1850+ . Been a donut heavy bye period…. looking forward to having full team back next week! Weaknesses are Howe D6, Billings in F6, Walters in M8.

Atrain

1793 with Simpson to come in today's game, so not too bad for just scraping 18 together with a few rookies scores well under par. VC on Gawn helps a lot and Holman to Kelly trade working nicely for me! Can't wait to see what a full premo side can do now.

SC_Sixty6

Put the C on Kelly.

1509 with Cripps, Simpson and Grundy to go. Only fielded 17 with spargo a surprise out. Hopefully looking between 1850-1900

TheGreatBozza

Currently on 1272 with Grundy (C), Pendles, Howe, De Goey, Cripps and Simpson. Projected mid 1900s

Tyruddanaut

I just have Cripps and Simpson, so am looking at 1900

Micky

Any decent streams for the game?

Ja191

not letting me post link but vipbox.st

Micky

thanks mate

Pod

This site is very good and in HD

hedski

Good first qtr from my guys, Mihocek 22, Cripps 50, Simmo 40 and Captain Treloar 42. 👍

Defying_Madness

I have Treloar captain as well and he has been useless this quarter. Wish I stuck with Cripps captain.
Treloar is playing full forward now damnit

hedski

Yep, would be good if he TOUCHED THE BALL in the second half. Cripps and Simmo on fire.

Defying_Madness

I have Cripps, Simmo and Grundy all which were better captain options. Hurts cause I went Treloar in over Kelly as well. Oh well

Corey

Fritsch to De Goey next week?

Tyruddanaut

Just wait until the game is over

Tyruddanaut

Cripps! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Brownlow medal for the best trade of the season

Finnius

I don't mind the look of Matt Crouch to Cripps next week. Cripps' 98% TOG is just insane.

BrownlowBoy

Carlton are 2 down which forces him to stay on ground.

BlueBaggerJosh

Anyone got the C on Crippa? Titch C gonna keep me from a 2000+ score but I'll take a 1900's score in the byes everyday of the week

Tyruddanaut

This is alright. We are only losing by 3 umpires…. I mean, 3 goals at three quarter time

hedski

Another qtr like that would be nice Treloarsome.

BrownlowBoy

Treloar hamstring

hedski

Ahhh crap.

Defying_Madness

TRELOAR DID A ****** HAMMY

AuroraBorealis?!

F*ck sake, treloar gone with a hamstring

BlueBaggerJosh

Nice transition into promoting wwe lol, can't wait I'll be going

BrownlowBoy

How is it so big?

Don't mean to be rude or anything but to me it's just fake crap?

AuroraBorealis?!

It's just another form of entertainment, im not into it but the story lines they run make it into a sort of live tv-show

Jock

Wwe is bigger than afl will ever be mate. Maybe not in this country but across the globe has many more fans. Different strokes for different folks!

BrownlowBoy

Yeah I never really got into it, but each to their own. Will be good for the city of Melbourne.

AuroraBorealis?!

At least i have an excuse to get Cripps in now

Finnius

Treloar might be back on…

BlueBaggerJosh

1970 pre scaling, pretty happy. Lost 3000 places throughout the first 2 byes to 4000 so hopefully I can climb a bit. Cripps C would make for some big scores though, could've had a 2130 myself

Defying_Madness

Around 1930 for me, could have been higher but Treloar captain hurt me
Good work though you should climb nicely

SamuraiPizzaCat

1910 for me this week, pretty happy with that with 17 on field

Tiger

Anyone have any idea as to how much cripps will be this week?

Tyruddanaut

547,400

Tyruddanaut

BE 31

TBone_9

Was waiting to go Brayshaw up to Cripps after this week to get him at his lowest. Wasn’t actually considering he might actually crack his BE and go up in price. Very excited to finally have him though! Hope you all have done better than my 1720 this week 🙂

Crow94

2018 for me

Jock

We know what year it is crow94… but what did you score 😉

Finnius

finished with 1923. Pretty happy with that to end the byes 🙂

AuroraBorealis?!

1918 for me, not bad

hedski

1707 from 16 playing, Treloar captain(d'oh), luckily only cramping.

TOPHAWK1

Got one over ya Hedski! I was fortunate to have 18 on the field. Thank fark these byes are done and dusted. Undoubtedly, we shall meet again. Cheers mate.

hedski

Will be good to have 22 again, I've just shuffled the magnets around, looks good. Cheers mate.

Defying_Madness

1940 here. Treloar captain apart from that solid week

Steve

1665 / 14 only , pretty happy with that

KSinny

1986 for me

Randomcliche2

1998/17 very happy, thanks fellas you really put in today, we were a man down and Cripps, Howe, Simpson you really lifted n1 fellas.

TOPHAWK1

1926 after Cripps put on a master class as captain. The byes are over! Survived the last 3 weeks with 1624, 1852, and 1926. 3 round average 1801. Job done. Now time to wait for the re open and pull two juicy trades. Josh Kelly, you are on the menu!

Baggy pants

Trelor ok just cramp, channel 9 news.

BrownlowBoy

Good news for owners.
Looked terrible when he did it.

Defying_Madness

my trades say thank you

theRealPod

I'm constantly amazed how afl players still get cramps. Shows how primitive the nutrition advice is in the modern game, or it could be Treloar had a big night out recently but kept it dark. I am happy that it was just cramps but boy oh boy didn't it look bad!?

Cobee Bear

To be fair, the position he was in when he got the cramps was putting an extreme load through his hammies

Danners

Hopefully, only brought him in this week over Oliver

Baggy pants

Sorry Treloar typo.

Jock

Full premo this week, cant decide on a forward. Westhoff, franklin, menegola, mundy or hogan? Thoughts community?

Jeff

I think I'd go with Westhoff of the bunch but I'm also interested in Ben Brown and waiting on Darling to come back

Jock

Yeah was thinking hoff, but already have gray so not sure whether its a smart move or not

Shake_n_Bake_

Fixtures kill you!!! Got 1971 and lost 5 leagues!! Even thou l had 2nd or third highest score. 🙁

Jock

Know how you feel mate, sitting 13th in one of my leagues even though i have the second highest average. Fixtures are key to league success

Shake_n_Bake_

The luck of the draw!! 🍀

Tyruddanaut

I'm in 16th for one with the highest average

Tyruddanaut

1901 and won 8

TOPHAWK1

Same here Shake! Got pumped in 5/10 leagues this week with 1926. Couldnt believe it. Hanging out for the re open. Time to finalise the Tophawks team. Cheers

Shake_n_Bake_

Was looking ok Hawk but for some reason didn’t have the luck of the Irish!

poloko48

1972 from 17 – pretty happy with that.
Had VC on Gawn so took that, would've gone Titch for C so that worked out well.
Jonas repaid my faith as well as Goldy and Charlie.
Spuds for the round were Gunston, Roughy, Hibberd and Hurley to a lesser extent.

My team as it stands, with 8 trades left and $131K in the kitty:

DEF: Simmo, Laird, Sicily, Hurley, HIbbo, Jonas (Ridley, Mihocek)
MID: Titch, Danger, Neale, Oliver, Cripps, JPK, Dusty, McLean (Spargo, Ahern, Phillips)
RUC: Gawn, Goldy (Cameron)
FWD: Heeney, Buddy, Hoff, Roughy, Gunston, Charlie (Smith, Keefe)

hedski

Great score from 17 Poloko, I'd be looking at swinging McLean fwd and upgrading Roughie to Fyfe?

Sc_Wow

Last minute change of the C paid off. Treloar to Cripps gets me an extra 92 points. Got over 2000 not bad

Pod

Nice work wow!!

r_calve

yes crippa as C worked out very well

Russty_

Did you ever know that you're my herooooooo?

Jon

Grow up

Russty_

Put a sock in it Jon.

Jon

Take your own advice Rusty. I'm sick of hearing you bagging on. Just get over it!

Russty_

Oh well, sorry you feel that way, I'm kinda sick of you telling people to Grow up, and you only just got here, go figure!

BVB21

Nice work!!! That’s an awesome score

Tyruddanaut

Time to bust my gut getting Crisp in

BrownlowBoy

Supercoach open!

iLoveNMFC

lol

KSinny

Holman – Dawson
Brayshaw – Kelly

Leaves me with 1 rookie to upgrade with 5 trades and $97k

BadgerHoney7

jumped up 10k in rankings this week back into the top 9k – if I didn't have a shocker in round 12 probably would be in top 3k but thats hwo supercoach goes.

Full strength now with –
TMac, Sicily, Laird, Yeo, Simmo, Heater – Mihocek, Duman

Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Kelly, Cripps, Gaff, Dusty, Merrett – Giro, Ahern, Mutch

Gawn, NicNat – Olango

Heeney, Hoff, Gray, McLean, Dev Smith, Walters – Tim Smith, Battle

hoping to come home strong with unfortunately only 4 trades remaining so I will hold for 4-5 weeks and not make any trades unless for a major injury and then when it comes to later rounds I will have a M9 and F7

Tyruddanaut

Big jump!

BadgerHoney7

god I needed it!!!

Russty_

Well done this week, I had a shocker but them's the breaks, try to hold those trades, you'll no doubt need them.

Tyruddanaut

Tossing up between TMac and Crisp. What does the community think?

KSinny

I'd go crisp just for the $$$

Tyruddanaut

Don't need the money or DPP, this is my last trade for the season including injury. Average is the only important part

KSinny

Then you'd have to go Tmac for the big scores

Cobee Bear

Maybe wait and see how T Mac recovers with the jaw injury he copped against Port? Either way, you're never gonna be comfortable because for every reason you have to select one, there are an equal number of reasons to pick the other

INPieman

Would be a good idea to save that trade for a season ending injury

Tyruddanaut

Have two trades left. This is for a D7/F7/M9 option so I won't have to use trades for the rest of the season

PeteB

TMac for DPP. Hasn’t scored below 80 and has a high ceiling.

Russty_

Believe me TY, you will have to use more trades this year…injuries and or suspensions seem to be happening every week this year…I have 7 left and I'm nervous about it.

Tyruddanaut

After this week

Randomcliche2

Crisp just. Tmac t mean revert

Crow94

Crisp!

PeteB

Which rookie to bring in out of Redman or Battle ?

Jeff

Wait and see if Redman plays. If yes, then go him. If not go Battle

PeteB

Final mid spot to Kelly, Oliver or Danger ?

Ja191

I’d say kelly out of those

theRealPod

Danger but I'm bias.

BoltonsBlues

Lets talk DPP and how much we value it from now on (post byes)

My team as it stands with 8 trades left

Tmac, Lloyd, Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Ryan (Austin, Mihocek)
Fyfe, Titch, Oliver, Danger, Cripps, Zerriett, Cogs, Dusty (Phillips, Ahern, Sprago)
Gawn, NicNat
Heeney, Sicily, Gray, McLean, Fristch, Henry (Guelfi, Smith)

Factoring in DPP and potential averages from here on out, is it worth losing it by moving Tmac down to the forward and getting in Crisp? or keep it and get Walters/Westhoff or someone else?

Going for league wins/total points within my cash league

Russty_

Think you need to get rid of Fritsch and Henry regardless, then you'll be full premo.

Ahmad rubas

need to trade out 2 of these rookies doedee cole rice and austin which 2 would you trade out assuming the other 2 will be kept as D7 and D8 till the finals

Steeeve

I have Fritsch at f7. Looking to upgrade and will have 469k to play with. I can bring in a forward or defence premo for him (would swing Sicily forward). Any good options or should I wait a couple of weeks then choose between Walters and Webster..?

KSinny

If you don't have McLean yet get him otherwise yeah maybe wait

Steeeve

Yep I have him. I could 0aint the fence but would prefer to keep as many trades as possible.

r_calve

tom Jonas at 444k is looking good as a pod

r_calve

anyone reckon i should go for Higgins as a POD this week

Ahmad rubas

Hop on the Doctor SuperCoach podcast round 13 recap listen between 49:00-53:00 and your answer is there

ByeReview

Interested to know how much people scores across the three byes, and how this impacted ranking. Put the following below: pre-bye rank; total bye rounds score; post-bye rank.

EG, pre the byes I was ranked 766. Across the byes I scored 5306. That moved me up to 637.

As an extra, chuck in whether you’re full premo and how many trades you have left. I’m full premo with 5 trades left. Have Wingard as F7/M9 (and Fritsch on my forward bench too). How high/low do you reckon I could get from here?

iLoveNMFC

Pre Bye Rank- 3,447
Score- 5242
Post Bye Rank- 2706
1 rookie left, 6 trades. Overall, byes were not too bad. Aiming for top 1k by the end of the season.

Ahmad rubas

Pre bye rank 43k
Post bye rank 27k
Byes score 5243
2 off being full premo which includes spud premos
Used 5 trades during byes to avoid donuts
12 trades left with 450k will be 10 trades left after this weeks final upgrades but don't have a strong bench like you with the likes of wingard and fritsch on the bench
The aim is top 10k which is very unlikely but going to give it a shot

KSinny

Pre Bye Rank – 13,752
Score – 5387
Post Bye Rank – 6324
1 rookie left (already upgraded one tonight), 5 trades and $97k. Aiming for the top 1k for the first time.

Bringing in Franklin for Fritsch to complete FULL premo (including Rocky & JJK) and 9 trades and $2k.
NOTE: Rocky is M8. will look to add Kelly and shift Rocky to M9 if I can generate enough cash!

DEF: Tmac, Lloyd, Sicily, Laird, Yeo, Simpson (Austin/Redman)
MID: Fyfe, Titch, Danger, Cripps, J.Selwood, Zorko, Parker, Rocky (E.Phillips/Barry/Ahern)

One off full premo. Hoping to continue to cut down my rank after what has been my worst season to date.

JohnDJ59

Pre Bye Rank 38,818, Total Score 4,866, Post Bye Rank 37,886, so moved up 932 places. Three from full premo and will stay that way, four trades left,which is two less than I had hoped for. Looking to get into the top 20k by years end and win a few finals, but really my season is toast compared to what I was expecting.

Best season since starting 4 years ago. 🙂

GreendaleFC

Pre Bye: 7958

Post Bye: 2624
4 Trades remaining.
Still have Fritsch in my starting 22 but will be keeping him for now. Ed Richards and Guelfi rotating on for cover. If I don't get any injuries in the next few weeks I'll look to get Jimmy Webster in for one of them.

dognino

Pre byes 8077
Score 5443
Post bye rank 3126

Still 1 rookie left on field and 7 trades left

Pre by rank: 16,789
post bye: 4,876
Full premo if you count rocky at M8, also have wingard at f7/M9 7 trades.

Daniel

Is it worth trading rocky out with only 4 trades left to Cripps or Kelly this week or to use 2 trades instead to bring in dusty this week or next and keep rocky as m9 for the rest of the year, both scenarios will leave me with 2 trades with my current bench cover being philips/giro/ahern

Tiger

Save those trades, you'll need them believe me

GrizNinja

Wow Finally achieved a rank in the top 1000.
Got 2075 this week with Titch as my Captain.
Full Premo and 8 trades left after bringing in Westoff and Gunston in the FWD Line last week.

DEF: Laird, T-McDonald, Yeo, Howe, H.Shaw, A.Rance (Doedee, Austin)
MID: Fyfe, Mitchell, Danger, Cripps, Sidebottom, Parker, Merrett, Coniglio, (T.Rockliff, Phillips, Ahern)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Olango)
FWD: Scicily, R.Gray, Westoff, Mclean, D.Smith, Gunston, (Fogarty, Smith)

Russty_

Is there a question there somewhere?

Lazza

Didn’t see one, but I’d be looking to replace Shaw in that team .. or move him to D9 and bring in another premo his Doedee.

Derek

I like Shaw. Also like the Rance selection. Need Heeney

Lazza

Why Shaw? He doesn’t rank in the top 10 under any measure.. he is a ‘bet’ selection, in that we don’t what we will get week to week.. which is ok for D7.
I’d have one or the other but not both Shaw and Rance.. ( I don’t have either)..

Randomcliche2

Great work, good trades in hand. Get heeney swing sicily.

Defying_Madness

Yeah Heeney is a must have

Trades

Straight swap Fritsch to McLean next week!

r_calve

yeah rate that

Lazza

Dilemma.. was planning to trade out Nank this week to Grundy .. but the timing is crap for most of the top few RUCs.. Grundy (BE 161) and Nic Nat (129) to lose coin this week!! .. is Goldstein (73) the real deal? .. is Grundy really worth $100k more than Goldstein and Nic Nat?? Nank has a 130 BE, so more than likely to lose coin anyway…
Number of trades (12) not an issue.. so could afford to make a mistake.
I’m now leaning toward Nic Nat instead of Grundy .. thoughts?

Randomcliche2

Perhaps. Yes. Don't.

Lazza

ok. Then.🤔

Steeeve

Very glad I reversed trades on Goldy to Kreuzer a fortnight ago!! Just hope Goldy remains a pod for me. Playing some great footy after a very lean patch earlier in the season, and (shhhhhhh) has an easy run through the final few rounds.

Sc_Wow

CMON ENGLAND!!!!!!!!

Russty_

Do you really like Soccer?…seems like a sport where diving is condoned, blatant acting /faking for a free kick, couldn't really ever get into it myself, just seems like it's against the spirit of real sport…with all the fake acting /staging that seems to happen in every match.
AFL is the total opposite of that sham of a game, except for a few players here and there, but they seem to get found out eventually.

Jon

And there you go again . . .

Sc_Wow

Yeah I love it mate, England born and bred, its the world game mate!

Not everyone needs to like it though, I can understand if you don't, but for me, nothing beats it.

Russty_

Yeah it could be a really great game if there wasn't so much cheating involved, it's a damn shame really..the way guys throw themselves to the ground holding their faces after some guy barely touches their shoulder with their finger.
Otherwise, a really good game.

Sc_Wow

Yeah seems to happen at the top level, can't deny they are amazing athletes though will huge amounts of skill.
The world cup is an amazing tournament

Like I said though, I can understand that its not everyones favorited, just as AFL wouldn't appeal to everyone

Derek

Do you play EPL fantasy Wow?

Tom

It's really not that common if you actually watched the sport, about as common as players like Selwood doing similar but cowardly ducking for frees. Both sports have problems like that but it's ignorant to generalise the entire code by a small aspect. Plus the nature of AFL means of course it's more physical.

Ahmad rubas

Do you play World Cup fantasy or fpl?

Octa

Hey mate it aint soccer its SAWKER!
Where kicking a ball gets in the way of diving and celebrating how small each others package is.

Joe

How to tell when someone has no clue about something and talks out of their ass

neil demons delight

Russty's correct wow Check out 'afl vs soccer' and look at the Brisbane vs Gold Coast game. I too love soccer and also born and bred Welshman and a life long EELS member supporting all three codes but the diving spoils it but so does Camerons hit. Two sides to it NDD

Sc_Wow

Yeah AFL is the only sport where knocking out an opponent gives you and advantage. Yeah I've seen that vid that you're referring to. Not all sports need to have dudes getting knocked out for it to be good, its non contact much like the NBA, comparing apples with oranges.

Sc_Wow

Again guys you don't have to like it, I understand if you don't

ENGLAND!!!!!!!

If u can believe the "projection" estimating 2460 this week.
😂

No

18 and 4, 5 trades left but all for injury cover.

BVB21

I’m in 57th.

Hoping to push for a top 10 spot.

Full premo with Rockliff as M9.

Marty

Well done, i would be interested to see your lineup.
Please post your team if you dont mind.

Sc_Wow

Nice

theRealPod

Excellent work BVB.

Derek

Nice.

Love to hear what you think got you there.

BVB21

My strategy was to pick players who I thought could become premos this year.

Last year I wanted to pick Kelly and Oliver but the forum told me to pick players like Josh Kennedy and Pendlebury.

I picked players like Toby Maclean and Devon Smith as they both looked to get more midfield time.

I also didn’t pick anyone with an injury concern. So I avoided Hurley, Dangerfield etc

I also listened to yourself (mainly about aggressively trading rookies as last year I lost ground waiting for them to max out)

I also think Wow and Sixty6 played a big role with their advice. I appreciate them continuing to post here even with the abuse they cop from fellow forum members.

I made some mistakes along the way. Kane Lambert and Jack Billings I’m looking at you. But I got rid of them early for Gray and Hogan and i think they saved my season.

I had a few injuries along the way which didn’t help.

I think had I picked macrae I would have been right up there close to the top 10.

Rick Grimes

I've found that going the opposite of 66/wow is the best advice.

Sc_Wow

I’m guessing your rank reflects that?

The Ranger

Good onya BVB, best of luck mate.

onya bvb21

better rank than wow and his dog, good job mate
