That round didn’t go well.

It went awfully, in fact. Heeney, Dusty, Oliver, Smith and more all delivered sub-par scores. Gunston a late out. Nathaniel Fyfe doing a hamstring in the first half of his game.

And that’s before we talk about VC/C carnage caused by Ahern and Giro being late ins, or just people not putting the captaincy on Tom Mitchell

 

How are you travelling? What are you on track to score? What are your moves this week?

Will discuss this in the podcast, but Luke Shuey at ~370k this week coming off a 116. What do we think? Trap? Lock at M9?

Also this round has hurt so very, very much. I miss the bye rounds.

    r_calve · 01/07/2018 at 22:34

    how long is Fyfe out for and should we trade him

    Swans2012 · 02/07/2018 at 11:31

    I bought him in this week to loop with rocky at m9, worked this week but who knows….

JeffHeadJfc · 01/07/2018 at 19:23

Shuey in at m9 to cover fyfe for the next couple

    Patch · 01/07/2018 at 19:47

    Will be a popular move I feel

Lazza · 01/07/2018 at 19:34

Hey Patch.. Giro was in the team from the beginning .. not a late in.. SC stuffed up with him and Guelfi ..

Lazza · 01/07/2018 at 19:37

I’m so glad I switched my C to Ridley at 3/4 time of Melb game to get Gawn’s score.. else I would have had Fyfe’s..

Lazza · 01/07/2018 at 19:43

Have captured the Black Flag after being behind for most of the weekend .. 2272 with Dusty, Oliver, Fyfe, Luke Ryan, McDonald and Franklin all spudding it up..

    Patch · 01/07/2018 at 19:46

    Massive work Lazza! Who'd you whack the C on? EDIT: Just seen your comment above, lovely stuff mate

    Randomcliche2 · 02/07/2018 at 17:53

    Popular score mate, identical to Swans2012 and myself. You can add D.Smith and Heeney to list of poo bears.

FearTheBeard · 01/07/2018 at 19:50

How bad is Fyfe's injury?

    Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 09:24

    looks like 3-4

Rivo · 01/07/2018 at 19:51

Hi Patch. I feel your pain. Only scraped into 2235, with Fyfe Captain, Oliver, T-Mac, Dusty & Dev Smith. An complete mess. Now have to worry about injuries to Fyfe & Heeney.
Going to be a lot of soul searching. Any bubble boys worth considering?

    Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 07:29

    Not a bubble boy but love the look of narkle from the catters

      Rivo · 02/07/2018 at 07:38

      Yes Ja, both Narkle & Sier were impressive. Shame they are not DPP.

Ahmad rubas · 01/07/2018 at 19:53

4 wins out of 9 leagues not too bad considering I captained Cripps instead of Gawn or titch and none of my opponents had Fyfe captain. Annoying I lost the one matchup I cared about this week due to him captaining titch and heeney lobb smith on my side.
How did everyone else go this weekend and does anyone have any early trade plans?

TIGESB2B · 01/07/2018 at 19:57

F me. Brought on NP loophole to take Grundy's VC score, and forgot to change the E to Guelfi. So, played a man short and lost by 17. And didn't have VC on Titch. And played D Fog fwd instead of Ahern coz Ahern wasn't playing – on mid bench.

Adam · 01/07/2018 at 20:02

Lost by 40 freaking 6, Shaw 40 Degoey 64 and
the C on Fyfe 43, like are you kidding me aghhhhh

Connor · 01/07/2018 at 20:08

Ended around 2200 even with the Mitchell captaincy… had the Kreuzer donut then copped Heeney, Fyfe, T Mac, Buddy & Oliver – had to play Josh Battle too

hedski · 01/07/2018 at 20:14

2289, not to bad with Heeney, Dusty, Fyfe, Smith and Ryan all crapping their dacks or getting injured.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 01/07/2018 at 21:22

    Similar score to me 2282, captained Fyfe and have Heeney, Dusty, Smith.. no Ryan though

    SC_Sixty6 · 01/07/2018 at 22:45

    2248 I think. Fyfe, Ryan, Smith, heeney, oliver, ZGL yuck.

David · 01/07/2018 at 20:37

Lost by one because I reversed my trades right on game time Thursday night. It locked dusty as captain as he was my loophole from the week before. Not ideal.

    Clinterfell_FC · 01/07/2018 at 21:00

    This happened to me in the second week of the byes, locking in Macrae as C on the night he did his hammy!!! Thutnight games are a killer!

Clinterfell_FC · 01/07/2018 at 20:59

Second time this year that a late IN (Ahern) has cost me a loophole worth 170+. I live overseas and these late changes happen at about 4 or 5am and give me no chance to respond! Almost makes me consider playing the “other AFL fantasy” game… almost.

Hawks · 01/07/2018 at 21:09

Finished with 2372 despite having Heeney, D.Smith, Dusty, Fyfe & Oliver.

Won 4 out of 5 match-ups, the one I lost my opponent needed S.Martin to outscore Fyfe by 74 points, ohh well.

DANGER1VDUSTY222 · 01/07/2018 at 21:14

Jacob Dawson 102k rookie MID (51 + 59)
Any better options for cash generation this week?

    Audrey Horne · 02/07/2018 at 09:58

    Go early on Sier.

      theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 13:10

      Sier was good but vs Suns, think I'll watch him another week.

KSinny · 01/07/2018 at 21:19

Slowly creeping up the rankings with a 2317 despite having Heeney, Fyfe, Oliver, Smith and Guelfi. I've now moved up to 5114 which is my best rank ever 😁 Hows everyone else traveling?

    Derek · 02/07/2018 at 09:11

    Very nice. Well done, this is your breakout year.

DEES NUTS R BIG · 01/07/2018 at 23:02

Best MID 8 under 530k for final upgrade.
Gaff/Selwood/Curnow/Crouch?

    Derek · 02/07/2018 at 09:10

    Crouch. With Sloane back Crouch will kill it

    theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 13:12

    Selwood loves tough games, Cats have tough games ahead. Crouch also well worth a look.

      SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 14:54

      Selwood didn't like it against the doggies on Friday….

Gem · 02/07/2018 at 00:11

Tried to Take Gawn's score and subbed Ahern on for Captain and he was a late in because Ben Jacobs didn't play. My opponent was able to sub Ridley on. Ouch, Super Coach Gods did not smile on me at all.

    Rabbits16 · 03/07/2018 at 19:12

    damn boii but lucky Ahern got 80 and not a 40

Sam_01 · 02/07/2018 at 00:49

Fell 400 spots after putting up a 2150 sitting just outside the top 1000 now, obviously need to assess the Fyfe injury is it worth just trading Him and mounting an attack on the prize if he is gone for 3-4+
Thinking Fyfe to matt crouch frees cash and nicnat to Grundy
Will leave me with one trade left but you gotta risk it for the biscuit
Like the look of crouch with Adelaide slowly putting their team back together

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 10:39

    For anyone outside top 500 right now it's a far stretch you can make up the gap in 8.
    499th place is 1,037pts behind.

    I would say only the top 200 at most are still in it for now.

SuperLottocoach · 02/07/2018 at 09:27

More than 80% of comments are referencing the influence that luck had on scores this round. Maybe SC is more about luck than it is about skill?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 09:55

    Nah luck is subjective
    Some say it's 10%
    Others say 30%
    I say it's 50% because you control the starting team then the trades but it's only half the game. The other half is the actual players which you don't control.

    1st half concussions/injuries for low scores, long term injuries, suspensions ect will happen but how many times it effects your team is what makes this game about luck. Sure identifying players who are not injury prone is important too. That you can control.

    Point is every season has its great luck moments and bad luck moments.

    Coaches have gone:
    JJK > Gunston
    Cogs > Treloar
    Dusty > Treloar

    For example

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 10:13

      Don't think there would be many people here who would not have made minimum 4 injury trades and
      3 corrective trades this season

        Randomcliche2 · 02/07/2018 at 17:58

        You must plan for injury trades, at least 10 of them, using them more aggressively early in the season because once touch is lost it's lost, given that by now the variation between teams really starts to narrow.

        Lazza · 03/07/2018 at 19:12

        Trade analysis:
        Injury: Ryan, Greene, Macrae, JJK, Fyfe
        Corrections: Zorko, Hibberd,
        Held thru injury: Franklin, Walters,
        Bit me: Zorko trade out
        Biting me: Dusty trade in

        10 trades left.

    Derek · 02/07/2018 at 11:24

    people only remember the bad luck.

    good luck is quickly put down to superior SC skills.

    everyone will have the same amount of tough stories and good stories over the course of the season. it averages itself out, always does. It is then the coaches who plan for these things that recover the quickest.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 12:08

      My defining moment this year was not starting Fyfe because of his 2 previous seasons I predicted he would fall again but as the season got toward the back end I was definately starting to doubt my decision.

      Thing is could I have saved a trade if a stuck with Cogs… yes
      Could I have saved 3 trades if I did not go Cogs to Treloar then to Fyfe… yes

      This is SuperCoach

      Chooka · 02/07/2018 at 14:52

      Why is it that you are dead set last in a mates league.
      With all respect to you Derek, you offer decent advice but really!
      Yes, you must select an initial good squad and manage it and yes we do tend to remember the bad luck like racing punters seem to remember their wins and not their losses.
      You CANNOT win anything with bad luck.
      GOODLUCK to everyone.

        Derek · 02/07/2018 at 15:57

        thanks for reminding me Chooka. now i do agree it is completely based on luck and my poor decisions this year have no bearing on my current rank. in my defense though, i have managed two top 100 finishes in the 7 years ive been playing, highest ever rank of 76th in 2015, must have got lucky that year.

          Chooka · 02/07/2018 at 17:27

          Yes, you must have had a lot of good luck that year and I didn’t say SC is COMPLETELY based on luck. Derek, I have no doubt that you know what you are doing but yes, you have obviously had some dreadful luck this year because you know more about SC than most.
          Personally my best has been a top 1000 finish but not this year as I have had an injury every week except the initial two weeks and of course three last week like many others, but I continue to fight.

            Derek · 02/07/2018 at 17:31

            it was the bye rounds stuffed me. I don't think i've won a match in last 5 weeks. 5 donuts and crap rookies on field, and this week…. i just don't want to talk about it. i am still alive in most of my leagues.

              Chooka · 02/07/2018 at 20:55

              Fair enough. Good luck

    theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 13:04

    No doubt luck, or as some like to refer to as The SC Gods, can greatly influence your season. How you deal with the problems is what seperates the average coach and an elite coach.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 13:08

      agree with that. I made some poor trades

        SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 14:52

        Probably your worst trade of the year was fyfe in at rd 15. *shakes head*

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 14:59

          with 6 PODs already established before that trade I actually think Treloar to Fyfe was a no brainer. Only his injury made it the worst trade for me this year. Damn sucks when it happens hey 66 much like JJK to Gunston to Billings.

            SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 15:03

            Those trades are over 7 weeks yet your trades are 3 in 3 weeks. You'd just about be outta trades?

              ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 15:05

              Down to 3 if I trade Fyfe. Have Mundy and Ahern to cover if I don't.

                SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 15:07

                Tough times! I have 4 remain. Keeping fyfe and waiting til last couple of rounds to do some damage

                  ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 15:10

                  been a shitty year for most of us regarding injuries. I agree Fyfe is worth the wait, I can use bench cover. Hope we don't have too much more to deal with for the next month.
                  Good luck mate

        Shirley · 02/07/2018 at 14:54

        All of my trades have bee good but I have had an injury/late withdrawal every round but I press on.

mick · 02/07/2018 at 10:17

57 th possy 2 trades left with fyfe and heeney out trade fyfe and Taranto 4 crouch and a pod or keep trades need help

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 10:19

    You got a premo on bench?
    If you do hold them trades, this season is on another level for soft tissue injuries so far and the worst part is this was supposed to be happening in the last 4-5 games when players feel the pinch. Not over the last month with 8 games to go still!

      mick · 02/07/2018 at 11:14

      tnx no premo on bench only ahern

      Puree · 02/07/2018 at 14:56

      No different to last year with soft tissue injuries and it will get worse in years to come until they reduce the time played imo.

    Derek · 02/07/2018 at 11:20

    show your full team

      SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 14:59

      Or just look him up…. probably quicker

    theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 13:07

    Great effort on getting so high in the rankings Mick but I think the fat lady is clearing her throat. I heard her dulcet tones months ago now after league wins, cheers

    SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 15:00

    Keep Heeney as he's 1 week max. Depending on Fyfe with how many weeks I'd hold. Your 2 trades would only help you this week….8 games to go so hold.

TheGreatBozza · 02/07/2018 at 10:20

Brutal round thanks to Fyfe el capitano, bunched in with bringing in Heeney, as well as De Goey failing to fire. Dropped from 1500 to 3200 rank

Moving forward who is the best Fyfe replacement? I’ve got 9 trades left so I’ll be looking to move him on and also bring in another premo defender to finish my team, and have De Goey as my F7 with Savage as D6

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 10:27

    Crouch, JPK, Parker, Kelly, Duncan, Pendlebury any of those

      Felix · 02/07/2018 at 14:59

      Pendlebury hitting his straps especially with his sidekick T out. Sidebum maybe? Pendles will allow 80K for next trade.

    Defying_Madness · 03/07/2018 at 00:13

    Kelly, Neale, Gaff or Crouch for me apart from the obvious players most already have

    Lazza · 03/07/2018 at 18:55

    Cripps if you don’t have him… almost a straight swap.

BrownlowBoy · 02/07/2018 at 10:46

Lebron signed with the Lakers!!!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 10:53

    I know -.-
    That mean Lonzo will be a bench bum lol

      BrownlowBoy · 02/07/2018 at 11:01

      Nah, I think Lebron will quiet enjoy playing with Lonzo.

      Despite LaVar being a jerk, Lonzo is a good player. Lonzo is a passing point guard, which will help Lebron I feel.

      Exciting times ahead in LA!

    Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 11:37

    would of loved to see him go to philly with ben and embiid

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 11:53

      Simmons need to work on his mid range jumper
      Guy will be a 23-9-10 player at his peak

        INPieman · 02/07/2018 at 12:57

        If Simmons becomes a good shooter he will be unstoppable. I reckon he needs to go back to right handed

          BrownlowBoy · 02/07/2018 at 13:50

          Agree Pieman. He's a natural right hander. If you look closely, all his finishes around the rim are with his right hand (majority of the time).

            INPieman · 02/07/2018 at 20:00

            He's natural right handed. Looks so much more coordinated. Lets hope common sense prevails & becomes a legend

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 02/07/2018 at 17:14

    Easier passage for the Celtics to make finals!! 🍀💪🍀

      Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 17:57

      Haha good for us raptors, lebron won’t sweep us til later

Stacky23 · 02/07/2018 at 12:32

scored 2306 and up another 1000 to be ranked 5295, not to bad considering heeney, dusty, fyfe and smith
De goey trade did not go as planned but took fritsch score and ended up winning by under 10 and now have decent cover for fyfe over coming weeks so can save my 6 remaining trades

Marcus · 02/07/2018 at 12:46

What are peoples thoughts on Neale
Think Fyfe out will increase production or will he struggle with extra attention?

    theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 12:59

    Neale struggles when tagged, buyer beware.

      Steeeve · 02/07/2018 at 16:24

      Neale feasts on the crap teams, doesn't score as well against good teams.

    Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 13:16

    i like jpk

Scoops_McYoung · 02/07/2018 at 13:51

2372, moved back up to 656 (was 250 pre byes).

Was on track for 2500 until Sunday… Oliver, DSmith, Fyfe 🙁

This game really does hurt sometimes..

DTJ · 02/07/2018 at 14:11

I top scored 🙂

Any thoughts on Brayshaw (on the bench) to Sier then either Ronke or Christensen to the Hoff.
or
Brayshaw to Trengrove and either Ronke or Christensen back to Billings.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 02/07/2018 at 14:57

    Wow that's awesome congrats! Huge rank change!

    I'm still not sure I trust Billings but his last two scores have been good, the Hoff is a better choice. Trengove would be a decent bench option.

    SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 15:06

    That's the beauty about this game hey! People that are so consistent over the year get nothing but another lesson learnt over the year. Then you have blokes that are 50k rank and take out a weekly prize. Well done.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 15:15

      to be fair it's usually a very obscure team added with the highest scoring Captain that takes the weekly prize. A few false premos avg 80 ish that go mental 140 and beyond. Grats

      Rick Grimes · 02/07/2018 at 18:35

      What a salty comment.

        SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 19:45

        Lol how is it salty? It's a true observation. Nothing more nothing less. You try dissect all my posts into negativity. How'd you go this week rick? You've been quiet although I was busy all weekend didn't have time to look.

          Russty_ · 02/07/2018 at 20:08

          Hi 66, just wondering, with Heeney and Fyfe missing week/weeks, are you going to depend on Ahern and Giro to cover them or do you think you'll need to do any trades this week?

            SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 20:13

            Hi rustie. I haven't given it too much thought as it's Monday but seeing as you've analysed my team what do you think I should do?

              Russty_ · 02/07/2018 at 20:22

              Haven't analysed it…you're in one of my Leagues so I look at all the teams, you don't seem to have very many other rookies who are playing that's why I brought it up but it depends why you're playing I guess, you could maybe get Shuey in I guess to cover the midfield spot, but depends on how many trades you have left and how much money.
              I'll probably be depending on Ahern and Jack Higgins this week, to get a half decent score and only doing 1 trade.
              Brayshaw to Shuey.

                SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 20:56

                Oh ok I just thought when you said you didn't care about that league because myself and wow were in it that you had cut all ties from it. Plus you can't make the top 8.

                I'll take into consideration all options. Might do it Wednesday. Cheers

                  Russty_ · 02/07/2018 at 21:11

                  I'll be happy if I make 5 out of 10 top 8 in the Leagues, 50 % success rate isn't too bad, for me, only reason I said that it was a tainted League is because you said you couldn't care less about leagues, and I mostly play for that reason.
                  Bloody tough year so far with tough decisions to make, seems like every week, we need to trade someone out to cover for the ongoing disaster that has been this year.
                  Need to have cover and trades, and hopefully cash in reserve, I think many coaches this year, won't even survive long enough to give the finals a run….just the way things are heading.

              Im selling trades · 02/07/2018 at 20:34

              I think you need to see me ol mate, must be getting pretty low

                SC_Sixty6 · 02/07/2018 at 21:14

                Not as low as Dave. As I said earlier today I have 4.

                  ZzZCalintZzZ · 02/07/2018 at 22:57

                  Down to 3 if I trade Fyfe. Have Mundy and Ahern to cover if I don't.

    theRealPod · 02/07/2018 at 15:21

    Awesome DTJ congrats. Billings no, Hoff yes.

    Steeeve · 02/07/2018 at 16:23

    What was your score mate?

      DTJ · 03/07/2018 at 00:06

      2639 🙂

    sc tragic · 02/07/2018 at 18:16

    Kudos mate, well done great score.

    Cotchinator · 03/07/2018 at 12:45

    Well Done DTJ, awesome effort, and you have something concrete to show for your season.
    Unlike the other 2 in here who have been constantly raving all year about their rank and how good they are who will end up with nothing!!

      theRealPod · 03/07/2018 at 14:10

      😂 👍

    Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 13:24

    great effort!

Dice_real · 02/07/2018 at 14:45

Gday Patch, similar thing to me mate.
Took me boys away for the weekend and forgot to take the C off farkin fyfe!
Scored 2323 – vc stayed on gawn

Steeeve · 02/07/2018 at 16:23

Finished under 2200 and still in only dropped a couple hundred spots, still in top 1000. Must have been a lot of poor scores among the highly-ranked players this week.

    Randomcliche2 · 02/07/2018 at 18:05

    Interesting Stevo 2270 and rank didn't move much I think… still a bit of a way off at 6k.

Jim_bob321 · 02/07/2018 at 17:20

Hey community,
Hope you went well last week. I'm just a bit confused on my team at this rate…. Scored 2400 and don't know what trades to make.
Thinking of holding Fyfe for now but not sure. My backline is in desperate need but have no generation. Need the communities help.. if u can lol
Bank of 83,400
DEF: Sicily, Simpson, Laird, Savage, Howe, J. Smith (Langlands, Redman)
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Danger, Duncan, Bont, Conglio, Fyfe, E. Curnow (Ahern, Giro, Brown)
RCK: Gawn, Martin (Cameron)
FWD: M. Robinson, Westhoff, Gray, Franklin, D. Smith, Mclean (T. Smith, J. Battle)
Cheers community!

    Redpill5 · 02/07/2018 at 21:13

    If you have plenty of trades you might want to consider trading out Fyfe as he will lose money when he returns from injury and trade in yeo for redman.

BigAl_15 · 02/07/2018 at 17:23

SOOOO frustrated with myself. I put the C on Fyfe over Gawn as I couldn't loophole him and got 2241. Would've had such a better score if I captained Gawn…rip

NoLanguage · 02/07/2018 at 17:36

Fyfe To Shauny Higgins? 6 scores of 120+ and is absolutely flying with North having a decent run home.

AND only in 2% of teams…

    Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 17:49

    Ughhhh the tag worries me

      NoLanguage · 02/07/2018 at 18:14

      Been breaking it pretty comfortably of late. He also won't get tagged by Jacobs 🙂

        Ja191 · 02/07/2018 at 19:04

        Was on like 25 at ht 2 weeks ago being tagged before a 75 point third quarter where they took off tag I believe. Go with your gut though could be a very good pod pick

          NoLanguage · 02/07/2018 at 19:14

          Yeah they can lock him down for periods but has been very consistent. If Fyfe is out for at least 3 he's gotta go surely

Andy · 02/07/2018 at 18:12

Pendles, Wines or someone else around that price for Fyfe?

    sc tragic · 02/07/2018 at 18:18

    Do you know how long Fyfe is out? Reverse trades are a life saver tho.

      Andy · 02/07/2018 at 18:24

      Minimum 2 weeks I saw on AFL site

        Russty_ · 02/07/2018 at 20:12

        Hey Andy, reckon Pendles is looking pretty good, Joel Selwood too..Fyfe out for at least 2, could be 3 could be 4, then it's finals in SC

TBone_9 · 02/07/2018 at 20:53

Oliver all good to play this week? Saw nothing about his late driving tackle and getting fined at all. Also, who’s keeping Fyfe and whose selling?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 02/07/2018 at 20:56

    Hammies rarely one week so I think I'll trade to Kelly, Neale or JPK, 1 trade left is scary though so I'm not sure. Wanted to trade Boak but if I go along with the Fyfe trade I can't unless I hope there are no more injuries for the year and trade to a fallen premo like Darling later in time for SC Finals.

    Lazza · 03/07/2018 at 15:12

    Probably just do a straight swap to Cripps..

    JohnDJ59 · 03/07/2018 at 15:48

    Keeping Fyfe, he should be back for our finals, I have cover on all lines, but not many trades left.

Marty · 02/07/2018 at 21:07

I'm thinking Fyfe will be out 3-4 weeks. See the quote from The Age.

"Fremantle coach Ross Lyon was unsure how serious Fyfe's injury was but it appears his skipper will miss the standard three to four weeks in a further blow to the struggling Dockers, who were made to look second-rate by a Lions side that had previously won only one game all season."

    Russty_ · 02/07/2018 at 21:56

    It's all too traumatic to think about Marty…lol, so many bloody injuries this year, how are we meant to get through to the end?…lol

      Marty · 02/07/2018 at 22:57

      I know mate if i dump Fyfe I will only have 3 trades. Decisions decisions. Least the Saints have now won back to back games. Wonders never cease.

        BlueBaggerJosh · 03/07/2018 at 00:00

        Lol I'll have 1 😵

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 03/07/2018 at 18:32

          If the next month is even half as bad as last month I think thousands of coaches will be out of trades with 4 games still to go

      JohnDJ59 · 04/07/2018 at 01:27

      I'm thinking of not even continuing with SC next year if they don't raise the amount of trades to at least 33 to account for the amount of injuries that have been happening the last few years, doesn't matter how well you plan, injuries are having too much of an influence on results for me.

FotherMuckers · 02/07/2018 at 22:49

Fyfe (C), Heeney, Oliver, D.Smith – SuperCoach is giving no love.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 02/07/2018 at 23:05

    had all of those plus T.Mac, Luke Ryan and Liam Ryan. It was a tough round

theRealPod · 03/07/2018 at 07:29

Mihocek job security boosted with Dunn injury. Pies might struggle without the big fella.

SC_Sixty6 · 03/07/2018 at 10:14

Unlucky for the Battle owners. Out for 3 weeks minimum. Fractured eye socket.

    Cobee Bear · 03/07/2018 at 11:04

    Starting to become difficult to cover Heeney, Fyfe and Battle. A nervous wait for Liam Ryan owners as well.

      Cobee Bear · 03/07/2018 at 11:14

      Heeney status still not confirmed*

        Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 11:26

        he won't play i don't think.. don't see how he can…

          Cobee Bear · 03/07/2018 at 11:30

          Would be surprised if he took the field, and wouldn't expect a great score even if he did

      Lazza · 03/07/2018 at 18:52

      How many weeks on the side lines for being a space cadet?

    Crow94 · 03/07/2018 at 11:49

    Sick of this crap… players going down so often atm… i just got him in for cover last week!

      JohnDJ59 · 03/07/2018 at 15:49

      Same.

    Rabbits16 · 03/07/2018 at 18:47

    gr8! Just traded him in 😀

theRealPod · 03/07/2018 at 14:08

SCOOTER 😊 Welcome back!!

Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 14:10

Hi All,

Ranked 795, 5 trades left 60k in the bank.. I am not really in a position for the 50k am I?

DEF: Simpson, Yeo, Sicily, Laird, Shaw, Hurley (Ridley, Austin)

MID: Titch, Kelly, Cripps, Danger, Merrett, Coniglio, Fyfe, Martin (Ahern, Phillips, Giro)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Lavender)

FWD: McDonald, Heeney, Gray, D.Smith, Walters, McLean, (T.Smith, Battle)

Feedback appreciated

    theRealPod · 03/07/2018 at 14:25

    To be honest I don't think you'll even get close. Your team is solid but very similar to others. You would have to fly over the top of the leaders with a hand full of POD's that play well above average for the rest of the season. There are other factors including uber player injuries or loss of form, and top ranked coaches running out of trades.

    You've done an excellent job getting to that position.

      Keenbutclueless · 03/07/2018 at 15:04

      I am a little more bullish on this team. Basically because you possibly have more trades than other similarly placed teams. If you are to turn that into an advantage, then you would move on Fyffe if he is out for 2 weeks or more. You might be better to sit on those trades and hope you can use them late, and others have run out. I don’t think you can trade now into the 50k, you need to be well placed if others fall over

        Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 15:09

        thanks both! yeah good point i think i will sit on my trades, seems to best option regardless it will help league and is my only shot at 50k as well.

    HonestJohn · 03/07/2018 at 16:48

    Of course you're still in with a shot, you've got a great chance. All it takes is a single good/bad/lucky captains choices to make up 300 points and then there's injuries with minimal trades and the psychological impact they have on coaches.
    To improve your chances even further trade in a cheapish dpp wildcard to loophole (wingard or billings maybe) fwds always have off-weeks and being able to loop out of that score can be a huge advantage.
    Well done and good luck

      Da_Boysh · 03/07/2018 at 16:53

      Thanks mate!

    Lazza · 03/07/2018 at 18:32

    Get rid of Shaw if you want any chance ..

Nick · 03/07/2018 at 15:18

What is everyone’s thoughts on M Crouch? 480k odd seems good trade for Fyfe??

    Froglet · 03/07/2018 at 18:02

    Pendles better

      WithAllDueRespect · 03/07/2018 at 20:46

      That’s what I am doing.

        Maverick_ · 03/07/2018 at 21:25

        Going crouch now Sloane is back in the picture. Matt’s a steal at that price

BlueBaggerJosh · 03/07/2018 at 15:32

Heppell or Crouch for Fyfe? Both very cheap for what they can deliver and determined to will their team into finals contention.

    Ja191 · 03/07/2018 at 15:56

    i brought in crouch

    Choco · 03/07/2018 at 18:03

    If you don’t have Pendlebury get him because he is more reliable.

      Ja191 · 03/07/2018 at 18:08

      Personally pendles is a better pick than heppell but I rate crouch,neale,higgins,duncan,ward,jpk all over him

    Dry · 03/07/2018 at 22:48

    Heppell is a horrible option, is averaging 99 and has never averaged enough to SC relevant

Kyle · 03/07/2018 at 15:57

Thoughts on Kelly in for fyfe?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 03/07/2018 at 19:00

    Can't go wrong

Yeahnahyeah · 03/07/2018 at 16:43

Crisp and Crouch or Lloyd and Shuey?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 03/07/2018 at 17:09

    1st option easily

Cobee Bear · 03/07/2018 at 18:06

Dies anyone know if Patch and Lek are planning to RE-record the podcast? Need my fix!

dontblushbaby · 03/07/2018 at 18:44

Fyfe – 4 – 5 weeks, Sandi – 3 weeks – Source – SEN just now

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 03/07/2018 at 19:07

    Melbourne should destroy Freo right?

      Sc_Wow · 03/07/2018 at 20:47

      Gawn should

Rabbits16 · 03/07/2018 at 18:46

2,375 this week, moved up 4,501 places to a total rank of 15,296. what to do with Fyfe? hold or put ahern / higgins in as cover?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 03/07/2018 at 18:48

    If you have 3 or less trades you gotta hold out I think, but for Coaches inside top 200 gotta continue to gamble. Still 8 games to go and the way the season has gone the next 4 rounds "could" eat up another 2 trades. Be wary

    People with 4 or more trades have the luxury to trade Fyfe

      Defying_Madness · 03/07/2018 at 19:17

      think even with 3 or less trades you have no choice. 4-5 is way too long

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 03/07/2018 at 19:21

        agree only if you have no premium on the bench as pure M9 or an M9/F7 swing. If you do though but still 3 or less it's a needless risk to burn that trade. Leaves coaches with 2 trades for 8 rounds yikes

    Ja191 · 03/07/2018 at 18:57

    I think we have to trade sadly 4-5 weeks is too long to hold

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 03/07/2018 at 19:09

      agree 3 weeks is the max 4 is way too long and think Freo will not be in a hurry to bring him back seeing as they won't be fighting for top 8.

    Crow94 · 03/07/2018 at 18:58

    Have to trade. Way to long to be holding…

    Da_Boysh · 04/07/2018 at 09:11

    i went Higgins

Crow94 · 03/07/2018 at 18:57

4-5 weeks. F#CK!!! And will probably have a 0 this week with Heeney out also….

Dale · 03/07/2018 at 20:15

Fyfe to beams/crouch for me if i wanna pocket the $100k and still get 100+ most weeks.
I could go kelly/cripps but feel there very pricey for not a great deal more points from here till finals.
the 100k would help me go hibberd->simspon or nicnat->grundy next week

thoughts?

neil demons delight · 03/07/2018 at 20:25

Tim Smith well in the mix this week. Weideman given his chance NDD

    NoLanguage · 05/07/2018 at 00:48

    Hope so NDD with Heeney and Battle out
