An absolutely huge week in the Panic Room this week!

Nat Fyfe’s injury is one of those “everyone remembers where they were” type of things. Personally I was playing Crash Bandicoot. After dying for the 1,658th time I calmly placed (read: threw with uncontrolled rage) my controller down and checked the scores of Brisbane v Fremantle. I had four Freo players in the last game of the round and I was tracking for a 2,500 score. Alas, I was greeted by the big red cross next to Fyfe on Fanfooty. I left a note and $20 for pizza for Patch and jumped on the next flight over the Perth.

I’m on my way, Fyfey! I was born to provide rigorous hamstring rubdowns for you ❤ #AFLFreoLions

— Kevin Horton (@SC_Kev7) July 1, 2018

I’m sorry, Community. I have failed. My 3am rubdowns, chicken soup, and nightly spooning haven’t paid off and Nat is looking at 4-5 weeks on the sidelines. Is spooning a recognised hamstring recovery method? No. Have I stopped? Also no. You can’t hold, not now. Maybe if you’ve managed to build to M9 and feeling confident. Maybe. A direct swap to another premium midfielder is doable as the most expensive in Tom Mitchell is only 56k away and Josh Kelly is 14k away. Everyone else is cheaper than Fyfe.

There are other ways to play this. Cash gen has really dried up lately as our new batch of rookies have struggled for game time. Trading Fyfe to a player in a purple patch and using the extra coin is a viable strategy. A risky, ballsy strategy sure, but still a strategy.

So what do we do? Well we go to the guaranteed* best in the business. The technology overlords at Windows conspired to take our beloved podcast off us this week, but being the absolute troopers that Patch and Lek are, they re-recorded and let that podcast run wild and free, for as the old saying goes, “Let your podcast run wild and free.” Teams out of the final race will now be looking to blood their kids, Barron has his finger on the pulse in Around the Grounds this week. Patch takes a look at our captain choices for the round ahead (and actually remembered to include Tom Mitchell this time), and after four months of cheat sheets Damo is still producing all round brilliance.

*not a guarantee

THE NEWS

Well Thursday night footy is not here to have sexual intercourse with spiders this week. Isaac Heeney. BAM! Gone. Unable to recover from his concussion in time. Both teams play musical chairs with a few kids. Of note: Recent rookie Jamaine Jones is back. Scott Selwood returns for the Cats. Will he shadow JPK?

Matt Crouch has busted his hand as the Crows play the Tigers on Friday. He’ll play but cross him off your trade in targets. Tom Lynch replaces Dave Mackay in their only change. The Tigers are providing some forward line bench relief in the form of Callum Moore for those that have him. Corey Ellis is back too. The suspended Nick Vlastuin and the injured Reece Conca are the ones to make way.

Brisbane have announced an unchanged lineup for the first time in 17 years (this is not a real stat, do not @ me). Paddy Dow is being managed at Carlton. Matt Kreuzer will return. Is anyone still holding Jarrod Garlett? Shock, horror. He’s out injured. Aidyn Johnson has been named for Port and is on the bubble this week. Tom Jonas and Jack Watts are other big names to return. A mix of fringe and injured players make up their outs. Jasper Pittard being the most high profile. St. Kilda’s backline has fallen over days after the national under 18 carnival. I’m not suggesting anything here, but if I was it starts with t and ends with anking. Carlisle and Nathan Brown out doesn’t matter from a SuperCoach viewpoint, but they’ve taken Bailey Rice from us. Jimmy Webster and Logan Austin return for those that held. Charlie Spargo is back for the Dees, but Mitch Hannan is out. At Freo, seeing Nat Fyfe’s name among the outs has brought up old wounds and I’m now writing this slightly misty eyed. Ryan Nyhuis has been dropped. Hawthorn and the Bulldogs have made two changes each, but they won’t hurt you at all.

There’s TWELVE new names listed between North and Gold Coast. I’m not going to list them all as I’m on a deadline / have a life (one of those is correct). Jacob Dawson is out. Will Brodie and Jacob Heron are on an extended bench. There’s a possible debut for Will Walker (MID – 117.3k). It’s pretty much curtains for GWS in 2018. Jono Patton has done his knee again the poor bloke. There are more changes in this game than I can keep up with. Liam Ryan is being managed and there are possible debuts for Oscar Allen (FWD – 117.3k), Aiden Bonar *giggles* (FWD/MID – 157.8k) and Brent Daniels (FWD/MID – 117.3k). For the last game of the week, both teams have topped up their extended benches, Sam Murray is a chance to return.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Another week, another batch of so-so rookie bubble boys. Brayden Ainsworth and Aidyn Johnson are both due for their first price rise this week. Yeah… don’t Both garbage, 

Some cavalry is on the horizon in the form of Brayden Sier and Quinton Narkle. Both had super debuts but the path of SuperCoach is littered with injured and dropped rookies lately, so hold fire on both.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-39 – Brayden Ainsworth*

-13 – Aidyn Johnson

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

196 – TMac

174 – Kruze

167 – Clayton Oliver

160 – Rory Sloane

160 – Jimmy Webster

157 – Luke Ryan

157 – Ollie Wines

146 – Gaz

145 – Bont

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

Nat Fyfe will be at the forefront of trade plans for 56% of coaches this week. To me it’s a case of selecting the next best available. Trying to replace the scoring power of Fyfe, he’s gone 120+ 7x this season, with a Luke Shuey type is an unnecessary risk that you don’t need to take.

You can still grab a POD if you’re looking to distinguish your team from the pack. Ed Curnow (109.9 ave. In 3.5% teams), Andrew Gaff (109.1 ave. In 6.7% teams), and Lachie Neale (108.5 ave. In 7% of teams) are all great options with high ceilings.

A lot has been discussed on Twitter about the absence of Fyfe and Sandi won’t really have much of an affect on Neale, he actually might prosper. I’m still leaning towards Gaff. The former flat track bully has really excelled this season, turning his undoubted ball winning ability into higher ceiling scores. West Coast still have a lot to play for as they aim not to blow their 10-1 start, whereas Fremantle will just coast to the end of the year. A higher draft pick in a stacked draft is gold in a rebuilding team.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

G’day Community. Let’s get this out of the way early because let’s face it, my pants will be off and I’ll be sinking piss in preparation for this game. I’ve fired up the number cruncher at Fantasy Insider and the guru’s have given us this optimal lineup for tonights game.

My take:

RUCKS

Only two options tonight (I’m not counting JJ). Nank has a better average by 5.7, whereas Sauce has a better 3-game form by 4.7. There’s only $250 between them. Digging slightly deeper, Sauce has absolutely bossed Nank in recent times. He scored 120 vs Richmond earlier in the year and logged 158 and 96 last year. Along with 122 in the GF. Nank has an average of 92 across that 4-game period.

DEF

Rory Laird stands way above the pack at 15.5k. He’s an obvious gun but that’s just too expensive for mine. His 5-game average is 103.4 which is just 6.6x value so I’m looking elsewhere. I love Jayden Short. I’ve been stuffing him into lineups at every opportunity. His price is starting to catch up without his output but with a 5-game average of 92 he’s a pretty safe bet to hit value at 11.4k. Corey Ellis has been named this week and will probably head to the backline to fill the void left by Nick Vlastuin. He’s never been a particularly high scorer but only needs a 60 to hit 10x value.

FWD

When Conca went down last week Snags Higgins moved into the midfield and had 20 possessions, 7 marks, and 73DS. Richmond have brought in Cal Moore which says to me Higgins will continue to get increased midfield minutes. It’s a badly kept secret that Kane Lambert hits beast mode in SC with Dion Prestia in the side, and it translates to the DFS world as well. Lambert averages 101.6 (5 games) with Prestia in the side, 63.5DS without.

MID

Expecting some big numbers in the clash as Richmond don’t tag and Adelaide mids refuse to run both ways. The news of Matt Crouch’s fractured hand makes me nervous. He says he’s fine and good to go but I’m not feeling it. Especially for a guy that handballs as much as he does. Rory Sloane is at his best when there isn’t a tagger hanging off him. and 12.2k is just too good of a price to pass up on a player of his quality. Dusty hasn’t hit the heights of last year but his reduced price we know he can flick the switch. He hasn’t scored below 90 in his past 5 against the Crows. Dion Prestia has had a stop / start year. He scored 92 last week after a two month injury layoff. In round 7 he scored 70DS from half a game. Last of all, Jack Graham averages 8 tackles a game over the past 3 weeks and has 70’s to his name in each game.

My lineup:

The JR Group is currently the 109th best group in the land! Can we get into the top 100? That would be a phenomenal effort on behalf of the Community. Best of luck and, if you’re listening SC Gods, stop injuring our premiums!

What are the chances that L.Keefe gets a game? Need him in to avoid Heeneys 0

    Marty · 05/07/2018 at 19:08

    Three to be omitted. Possibly Shipley, Bonar and either Keefe or Daniels to go.

    Seeker · 05/07/2018 at 19:28

    With no Cameron and now Patton I’m hoping Keeffe gets a few more games

rtz · 05/07/2018 at 19:03

Cop a donut or bring in the likes of Wingard, Billings or Riewoldt? Would be my F6

    SC_Kev7 · 05/07/2018 at 19:13

    Wingard’s record against the Saints is pretty good

    BigAl_15 · 06/07/2018 at 13:30

    I reckon Billings cos if he's still averaging around 90, he'll score pretty good, gain cash and then you might wanna upgrade him if you can. But otherwise, go Wingard

      trevor · 06/07/2018 at 14:04

      wingard

    r_calve · 06/07/2018 at 16:09

    the chad looks so good right now bring him in

COYS · 05/07/2018 at 19:09

Fyfe to Beams and Guelfi to B. Brown?
I have 8 trades left and $27k in the bank.
I want to do a straight swap Fyfe for Neale, but that leaves me with bugger all and still needing to upgrade Guelfi down the track.

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 07:23

    Not sold on BB, COYS. Any other option?

      trevor · 06/07/2018 at 08:02

      Beams a legitimate option Kev? I am very tempted by him and crouch??

      Can you go wingard COYS?

Gibbs · 05/07/2018 at 19:12

Have 7 trades after trading Fyfe, do I use 1 to upgrade Dusty? If I was to upgrade him id have 530 K to do it

OR
Could upgrade Goldy to Grundy or just hold trades,

Personally Rather trade Dusty

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 07:25

    Gaff/Curnow under 530k is tempting… Both look to be top 10 mids

Marty · 05/07/2018 at 19:12

Glad I'm full team because so many bench players are not playing. Giro, Spargo and Guelfi are the only ones acting as subs. Liam Ryan out will hurt some teams. Fingers crossed there are no injuries after matches this week. Good luck to all supercoachers.

FearTheBeard · 05/07/2018 at 19:16

Hold Fyfe with either Giro/J Smith for a week and go for Macrae or go for JPK/Neale/Gaff/Bont?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 05/07/2018 at 19:30

    the scoring difference between macrae and the midfield premos you listed will not be significant enough to merit a week where you will probably lose 40 points at least. Also macrae is 1-2 weeks, he is a superstar and bulldogs might go conservative with him.

      FearTheBeard · 05/07/2018 at 19:35

      Thanks mate. So that leaves me at who? LOL.

        SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 07:26

        Gaff slightly ahead of Neale for mine

Crazy Bugger · 05/07/2018 at 19:27

anyone rate riding out the season with no trades?

    AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2018 at 20:00

    nope haha, especially not with how frequent the injuries have been this year

Ahmad rubas · 05/07/2018 at 19:31

I can loophole either Simpson or laird this week. Should I go with Simpson who is more likely to do worse than laird or go laird because it will be more valuable benching a poor score from such a highly owned player. Or don't bother and just leave the E on cole

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 07:28

    Reckon you’re pretty safe, Ahmed. That said, Simmo more likely to chuck in a stinker

      Ahmad rubas · 06/07/2018 at 09:16

      Yeah I think cole E is more safe on the small chance that rice comes in as a late in

THE SALTSHAKER · 05/07/2018 at 19:34

DEF: Laird, Yeo, Sicily, A Brayshaw, Lloyd, Savage (Austin, Mihocek)

MID: Danger, Dusty, Rocky, Zorko, Gaff, Shuey, Danger, Conigs (Macrae, Giro, Ahern)

RUCK: Grundy Gawn (olango)

FWD: Gray, McLean, D.Smith, Walters, Wingard, De Goey (Buddy, T. Smith )

Did Fyfe > Gaff, Guelfi > Shuey

1 trade left $6k

Can loop Buddy first game, Dusty 2nd game and toss up. between Smith De Goey who gets bench
Ranked 1456, dropped 600 odd spots rnd 13 as Cap Titch was robbed vs plenty had Cripps + simpson, last week took Cap off Titch where its been most of year going to keep Gawns 139 but Aherns late inclusion meant my loop closed and forced to take Fyfe inj was looking 2450 to 2500 myself still went up 6 places

Now just gotta hang on, if inj get me so be it, if not loving my options even more upon Macraes return

    BlueBaggerJosh · 05/07/2018 at 19:46

    wow you are set up brilliantly, i have one trade left and not one premo on bench lol

      THE SALTSHAKER · 09/07/2018 at 11:19

      well zorko started it, was cheap, as id burnt heaps of trades i thought i needed some value from the roles, got rocky, brayshaw, wingard, de goey, playing mid roles, then fritsch to walters last week, fyfe to gaff and used the $60k to move wingard to fwds and bring in shuey who gets 90 to 110 if he plays 110mins – theyve all worked this week 👍

    The Ranger · 05/07/2018 at 22:12

    Haha ha…nice work Salty, looks like you've been having a fun year. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya mate.

      THE SALTSHAKER · 09/07/2018 at 11:10

      my fwd line has eaten so many trades, if only i started with mclean + heeney instead of billings and petracca

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/07/2018 at 09:43

    Best team for options I've seen. Should make a big run home. Goodluck

    THE SALTSHAKER · 09/07/2018 at 11:08

    shit thanks for the props! 2633 this week 17th for the week, moved up 845 places to 611th overall had a great week, my cap choices let me down last few, cap grundy this week was nice to have everything work. My loop earnt me de goey 117 over buddys 59 so has worked out taking some early chances…fingers crossed no major injuries 👍

BlueBaggerJosh · 05/07/2018 at 20:00

Lloyd starting my perfect 9 up well, already packing my suitcases for a trip around the world.

    JohnDJ59 · 05/07/2018 at 22:31

    Same

    Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 23:42

    Did the same Josh, unfortunately, no one will ever win that ripoff game…it's too stacked against anyone winning it.

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/07/2018 at 18:40

      Stop whinging. Ffs

        Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 23:26

        Go eat your boyfriend's sausage kylie.

      Finnius · 07/07/2018 at 23:17

      Agreed. You can get 5 max. They don't let you change any after the round starts either – so with Simpson a late out I couldn't switch. There are always going to be a few Steve Motlops each week as well.

Defying_Madness · 05/07/2018 at 20:07

I wonder how many will get baited by Scooter this year haha

    TheGreatBozza · 06/07/2018 at 11:13

    I’ve learnt from last year

Marty · 05/07/2018 at 20:08

Is the real Danger back? Looking good tonight.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 13:15

    I didn't watch the final quarter, did they do the same as last week and swing him forward permanent again? He was on about 100 at 3/4 time, same as last week. He is definitely back fit and playing well. Recommend buying if you don't have. Note that Chris Scott is continuing to have brain fades and put him forward for quarters, so expect 105-115 avg, not the 130 odd from last year.

    Edit, just seen Marty's comment below. Yes he was fwd. Dammit.

BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 20:08

Geelong are a far better team with Scooter Selwood fit

    Corey · 05/07/2018 at 20:32

    Love Scott Selwood I 100% agree you see a significant improvement in the Cats whenever he is in the side, shame he’s often injured

Rooey · 05/07/2018 at 20:23

Is it worth trading fyfe to Heppell so I can afford Lloyd next week or just go with Neale and a 450kish def or fwd?

    KSinny · 05/07/2018 at 20:37

    Depends, which two do u reckon you'll get the most points from?

Corey · 05/07/2018 at 20:34

Dangerfield playing a lot more midfield with Taylor back in the side playing forward, 72 at HT if only I put the VC on him!

    BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 20:36

    Agree. A second key forward is key for Danger playing mid.

      Corey · 05/07/2018 at 21:22

      Need Crameri back

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/07/2018 at 21:28

    I VC'ed him, keep going Danger

      Marty · 05/07/2018 at 21:50

      Nope Scott has screwed him over again placing him in the forward line all last quarter.

        SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/07/2018 at 21:53

        Yep.. -5 points in the 4th quarter damn

        Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 21:53

        And everyone who had the VC on him!…was looking like getting a great score too.

          Rocksta_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:05

          Story of my season since first bye round ( 6 players out injured).
          Can’t pull a trick since then. O’h well, I’m sure I’m not the Lone Ranger.

            Lone Ranger · 05/07/2018 at 22:17

            Your not alone

CruelChris · 05/07/2018 at 20:52

GaZzzzzzz

dontblushbaby · 05/07/2018 at 21:04

I don't have them but how disappointing are Parker & Hannebery , and then there's Gaz , early retirement ?

    Defying_Madness · 05/07/2018 at 21:24

    Menegola can join them

      BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 21:55

      Poor disposal hurt him.

        Connor · 05/07/2018 at 21:56

        Yep 8 clangers hurts alot – scored 111 DT too. What could've been

Connor · 05/07/2018 at 21:18

Franklin losing 13SC for that 50 hurts!

Defying_Madness · 05/07/2018 at 21:22

Danger playing deep forward now

    Sc_Wow · 05/07/2018 at 21:23

    Scott is cooked

    BlueBaggerJosh · 05/07/2018 at 21:24

    Just scored a goal

Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 21:51

Buddy you sucked tonight, you can pay me back by getting 183 again like you did last year in my grand finals. 🙂

    Connor · 05/07/2018 at 21:56

    Was on 74 prior to giving away the 50 – ended on 59….

      Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 21:58

      Key forwards are always a crapshoot…sucked he got penalized for that, didn't hear the call or the whistle, Umpires are a bit too anal retentive these days.

    SC_Sixty6 · 05/07/2018 at 21:58

    Never ever had buddy in my side. Goes a long way in my top ranking finishes.

      Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:16

      Tell someone who cares mate…Buddy can be a boom or bust, he boomed for me at the right time last year and won me plenty of grand finals in my leagues, I wouldn't be boasting if I was as low on trades as you are, and still have Fyfe.

        SC_Sixty6 · 06/07/2018 at 09:12

        Rustie you worry about your bottom 8 finals coming up while I'll worry about my trades and who I bring in and take out. We touched on this in the week….I have more trades than your mate Dave.

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/07/2018 at 10:17

          I'm enjoying my 23 premo's and 3 trades mate. You enjoy your 19 premo's and 4 trades

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:17

      Not so true l had buddy last 2 years and finished both years in the top 100.

        PizzaSafety · 06/07/2018 at 00:17

        He's got Gold Coast in 2 weeks, should get heaps and heaps of delivery even if May plays alright. A 150+ will happen at some stage.

        Edit: actually has a poor scoring history against Gold Coast but I reckon he can get past it.

Steeeve · 05/07/2018 at 21:56

What the hell Danger? Thought my VC was going to pay handsome dividends at 3qtr

    Rocksta_ · 05/07/2018 at 21:57

    Likewise

BlueBaggerJosh · 05/07/2018 at 21:58

How much will Lloyd go up after that performance?

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/07/2018 at 22:07

    about $18k

neil demons delight · 05/07/2018 at 21:59

Rubbish game but Hedski your cats were better just NDD

    hedski · 05/07/2018 at 22:19

    If only we could kick straight Neil. I'll take it though 👍

      Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:20

      Good win mate…keeps your lads on track for the finals. 🙂

      neil demons delight · 05/07/2018 at 23:01

      Both teams are hard to get a line on.Tigers are montys at present and Collingwood next ( took a bit that) NDD

      theRealPod · 06/07/2018 at 06:56

      Go Cats

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:19

    Should have won that by 7 or 8 goals Neil. Hedski will still be happy with the win.

      neil demons delight · 05/07/2018 at 23:05

      are you holding Fyfe Shake

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 06/07/2018 at 14:13

        Switched Boak to mids going to have the E on him Neil and might see how he goes 1st. I play you again this week.

    Corey · 05/07/2018 at 23:05

    Classic Swans, Cats 4 Quarter Scrap where Geelong dominate the stat sheet but the result is often in favour of the Swans, but we’ll take the four points tonight!

Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:12

Not sure, Darcy isn't a pushover, plus they're playing in Darwin, and it's going to be 33 degrees, not sure how Gawny handles hot weather.

    Connor · 05/07/2018 at 22:14

    Refer to game vs Adelaide in Alice Springs earlier this year. Scored 114 against Jacobs (I know he wasn't in form but still a decent ruck) but played 10-15 minutes less game time than normal

      SC_Sixty6 · 06/07/2018 at 00:13

      👌👍

BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 22:14

Didn't you say you stopped VC'ing Dangerfield in round 5 just last week?

    hedski · 05/07/2018 at 22:20

    Good win for the cattas BB, got you in the Mag 7, good luck mate.

      BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 22:24

      Wasn't pretty, but you take them however you can get them.

      The 2 inclusions tonight, Scooter and Jones had 20 tackles between them. Huge effort.

      Looks like Taylor might be cooked, maybe throw Henderson forward when he's fit do you think?

      Scooter makes a huge difference in our midfield. Very underrated member of the team from outsiders looking in.

      Really liking Stanley's efforts lately, has improved greatly.

      Best of luck for this week, I brought in JPK over Selwood whoops!

        hedski · 05/07/2018 at 22:51

        Harry needs to go back, struggling fwd. Scoots a great in, love his pressure. Stanners is giving more effort which he needed to.
        Yeah I got JPK in too, glad I already have Joel. 👍

          BrownlowBoy · 05/07/2018 at 22:53

          Go back to the 2's or defence?

          Really don't know if he's in our best 22.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 13:21

    TY! 🙂 I've VC'd Cripps into Gawn this week…lets see how that goes.

Gem · 05/07/2018 at 22:18

10 Trades – 20k Just after some advice this week for trades
Thinking Fyfe and cash in Cole for a cheap rookie. Thoughts?

DEF: Laird, H Shaw, Simpson, Sicily, Yeo, T Cole (Austin, L Murphy)
MID: Rockliff, Dusty, Danger, Fyfe, Cogs,Titch, Oliver, Cripps (Giro, Brayshaw (freo), Ahern)
RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
FWD: Maclean, R Gray, Buddy, D Smith, Billings, Petracca (Heeney, Guelfi)

    Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:33

    Hey Gem, with 10 trades left I'd be looking to make some money this week…..you could go Fyfe to Shuey and Brayshaw to Sier.
    Would enable you to do whatever you want next week, Maybe stick Austin on field this week too instead of Cole.

    Defying_Madness · 05/07/2018 at 23:08

    I would probably go Fyfe to Kelly and then downgrade Guelfi to a rookie. then next week you can upgrade Cole to a defender of your choice

JohnDJ59 · 05/07/2018 at 22:27

Lloyd would have been a good pod VC, if only I hadn't chickened out.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 13:22

    If only I'd even thought about it…

      hedski · 06/07/2018 at 15:10

      If only I had him…

trevor · 05/07/2018 at 22:27

dayne beams (475k)… massive ceiling and starting to find the form but can drop the occasional turd! high risk high reward cheap as chips

Vs

Gaff (525k)… uber consistant know you will get your 100+ most weeks but is pricier comapred too beams.

opionions community?

    Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:34

    I'd go Gaff because of his uber consistency…he's cheap for that kind of consistency.

      neil demons delight · 05/07/2018 at 22:46

      So would I Rust. Will look extra well next year in red and blue NDD

        Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:55

        He'd be a great pickup for your mob next year Neil….Is T-Mac ok to go this week, or is his lung thing still a bit dodgy?

          neil demons delight · 05/07/2018 at 23:08

          Yeah mate those thugs last week fixed him Did Robbie Muir come out of retirement

      trevor · 05/07/2018 at 22:47

      Crouch in the picture? we know how he can play he is a jet! but that fractured hand makes me nervous… again his price is just ridiculous and sloane back must help

        Russty_ · 05/07/2018 at 22:57

        Coach said his hand fracture is a minor issue trevor, and he'll play this week even if he's a bit sore…he's an option but if I had to choose between the 2, I'd still go Gaff,

          trevor · 05/07/2018 at 23:03

          Thanks mate.

        Drunkin Kanga · 06/07/2018 at 00:21

        Could wait 2 weeks for Oliver around 500k or another bottoming MID.
        WestyOFF 507k in the meantime (FWD/MID) is a good option.

          trevor · 06/07/2018 at 07:56

          Got them both already kanga!

red5 · 06/07/2018 at 00:00

Thinking Fyfe ro Beams & Guelfi to Mclean

    theRealPod · 06/07/2018 at 06:55

    I like those moves Red

john · 06/07/2018 at 00:05

Is it worth trading Fyfe if I only have 7 trades left and 1 more premium to upgrade?

    DO DEES DOH · 06/07/2018 at 00:16

    Yes i traded Fyfe and Guelfi to McLean and Crouch (full premo finally) only 4 trades left now and 5k in the bank so locked in for a while.

James · 06/07/2018 at 02:06

Andrew Gaff or Lachie Neale?

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 07:33

    Gaff

      trevor · 06/07/2018 at 14:06

      gaff

    SC_Sixty6 · 06/07/2018 at 19:07

    Neale

    Sc_Wow · 06/07/2018 at 19:34

    Both

Lone Ranga · 06/07/2018 at 03:08

How are peoples teams going?
Full premo? (how many off or above full)
How many trades left?
Cash in the piggy?

    Ja191 · 06/07/2018 at 08:25

    1 off full premo and will have 3 trades left when I get them

    Mark · 06/07/2018 at 12:03

    full premo (IMO), 6 trades, 65k in the kitty and ranked 113:)

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 06/07/2018 at 13:06

    Full premo, except for Heeney on the bench, covered by Ahern
    6 trades left
    45k in the bank
    Rank a long way behind Mark

    INPieman · 06/07/2018 at 13:19

    Full premo, 5 trades after this week, 200k in the bank, rank just outside top 1k. 2 bad weeks in a row & went into freefall. But top 4 in all leagues

    The Ranger · 06/07/2018 at 16:04

    Full premo(ish). 6 trades after this week. 165K in the kitty.

    Lazza · 06/07/2018 at 19:00

    1.5 off Full premo … Nank and Richards on field … 9 trades left.
    Would have gone to Grundy this week but Fyfe trade-out stuffed that up… (need 2 trades to do it)
    Might cash out Guelfi to non-playing DPP to cash up so that I can bring in a bubble boy next week together with Grundy. This will leave me with 8 trades going into next week.

AuroraBorealis?! · 06/07/2018 at 09:55

Just wanted to say that your panic room write ups always make me laugh, hilariously well written and informative. Cheers for all the consistently good work this year Kev

    SC_Kev7 · 06/07/2018 at 15:23

    Cheers, AB! Great to get feedback. How’s your year been mate?

Dice_real · 06/07/2018 at 10:19

Dustin will bounce back tonight with 150

    Corey · 06/07/2018 at 11:39

    He’s due

      Pod · 06/07/2018 at 12:11

      Fyfe will get the Dusty tag

        Pod · 06/07/2018 at 12:11

        Sloane will get the Dusty tag lol

    Crow94 · 06/07/2018 at 16:32

    😂

Steve · 06/07/2018 at 10:35

What's everyones thoughts on Pendles as a stand in for Fyfe? scored well passed few weeks – bigger role/reliance with Treloar out maybe?

    Pod · 06/07/2018 at 12:07

    Like him or adams they are both so cheap i remember when adams was getting tonnes every week last year playing midfield it looked to have changed on the weekend and instead of him playing in the backline his playing mid again showing with his 30 posies and tackles

TheGreatBozza · 06/07/2018 at 11:12

Decided to be aggressive this week and roll with Richards as my Heeney cover.

Thoughts on Fyfe > Oliver, Ryan > Brander to swing Sicily FWD.

Leaves with me 7 trades so I can target any DEF or FWD premo next week. Looking at Lloyd or Westhoff

Other option is to go Ryan to Hurley/Bradshaw and Fyfe to Gaff

Thoughts?

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 13:26

    Good, I run Sicily forward, won't touch Tmac. Suggest Llyod, although you're paying slightly overs, he's top 6 def no probs from here out. The value pick is webster next week.

      TheGreatBozza · 06/07/2018 at 14:17

      Yeah I don’t like Tmac. I’m basically stuck this week between settling for a sub premo MID and premo FWD/DEF or vice-versa

      I’m thinking the smart play is to get a premo mid this week like Oliver and reassess DEF/FWD upgrades next week. Better than settling for a player I don’t really like

Pod · 06/07/2018 at 11:43

Charlie Curnow may come home strong Blues have Lions Stkilda Hawks GC GWS Bulldogs in the next month and a half he will go HUGE thoughts? Community (posted earlier but on another thread)

    Ja191 · 06/07/2018 at 13:59

    will he be your f7? I like it though. Gotta risk it for the biscuit

      Pod · 06/07/2018 at 17:34

      Yeah to cover heeny then will loophole him and walters or smith

    red5 · 06/07/2018 at 18:11

    tempted on recent form, 110 & 108
    BE 28
    Can he keep it up??

Mark · 06/07/2018 at 12:02

Ranked 113. Had the tough choice to make. Fyfe to who!!!??? Have gone to Dangerfield. 104 this week has paid off. Benched Heeney in favor of Doedee (a bit of DPP magic). The team currently this week sits at

Def: Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Webster, Doedee (Austin, Keeffe)
Mid: Mitchell, Kelly, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Merrett, Coniglio, Rockliff (Heeney, Giro, J.Smith)
Ruck: Gawn, Martin (McInerney)
Fwd: Smith, McLean, Sicily, McDonald, Gray, Hogan (T.Smith, Ahern)

Coverage on all lines and allows me what I had planned for with DPP between Sicily, McDonald and Keefe. 6 trades left and $65,100 in the kitty. Had to go Treloar to Kelly last week. Injuries are starting to hit!

    Mark · 06/07/2018 at 14:03

    ok, wow! Just made a permanent trade that leaves me with 5 left now. Went Doedee to Wingard! Leaves me some good DPP links and can run a few between forwards and mids with a premo on the bench I guess? Just hoping Doedee doesn't go off:)

      The Ranger · 06/07/2018 at 16:01

      I like the Wingard trade Mark, all the while he's playing in the guts he scores well.
      Fingers crossed on the injury front now eh?

      Derek · 06/07/2018 at 22:40

      Doh!

    Rabbits16 · 06/07/2018 at 18:19

    doing well m8 keep it up!

    Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 22:01

    Nice looking team, hang on, that's my midfield! 5 other differences though… i'll use some of your trades later please. Cheers

Trades · 06/07/2018 at 12:21

Fyfe to Cripps leaving Taranto/Ahern F6
Or
Fyfe to Gaff/Merett & Taranto to McLean

Only have 15k in the kitty

    Mark · 06/07/2018 at 12:24

    how many trades left?

    Mark · 06/07/2018 at 12:30

    if enough I'd go Fyfe to Gaff and Taranto to McLean. Gaff is heating up and Merrett is Mr. Consistent. Can't go wrong with either. In saying that though, Essendon has 5 top 8 teams coming up and only 3 outside of the 8, but again, he's consistent. Gaff only had Freo and Brisbane outside of the 8 and all others finals contenders. Both well priced. Gaff IMO though. Only 3 scores under 100 and 2 of those were 85 and 92 with the other being 74. That's consistent as well, haha:)

    TheGreatBozza · 06/07/2018 at 12:44

    I'd go option two. As much as a beast that Crippa is, I think McLean is a bargain at his price

Connor · 06/07/2018 at 13:16

Any Collingwood and/or Port Adelaide supporters…
T. Adams – role change? is he gonna play midfield, ave 105+
C. Wingard – will he keep playing midfield time?

Franklin Show · 06/07/2018 at 13:28

Fyfe to whom is on everyones lips!!!

I have narrowed the list to 2 – Gaff or J Kelly.

J.Kelly – is a risk if GWS lose a few games finals is over and does that mean Kelly is put out to be ready for next yr.

Gaff – safe pick with WC needing all the players to make sure they dont stuff up their start.

I'm so stuck – 6 trades so don't really have the trades to be stuffing around with corrections. Thoughts. Help Please.

    Connor · 06/07/2018 at 13:31

    I am just about set on Gaff.. already have Kelly but I like the look of Neale with Fyfe out (Sandi out tends not to affect him)

      Ja191 · 06/07/2018 at 13:57

      only thing I worry about is if he can handle the extra attention that fyfe usually takes freeing him up

        Connor · 06/07/2018 at 14:33

        take a look at 2016 season

    fcabel · 06/07/2018 at 13:45

    Kelly. He's much better

    Ricardo · 06/07/2018 at 15:15

    Kelly has higher ceiling than Gaff

James · 06/07/2018 at 14:10

im getting sucked into going fyfe -> beams..
BARGAIN!!
hmmmmmm

    red5 · 06/07/2018 at 18:14

    last 2 scores 100, 129
    BE 62
    7 scores of 100 or more
    I'm tempted

      Derek · 06/07/2018 at 22:38

      I did. Looking for a POD

        Jace · 06/07/2018 at 22:54

        I did also and I'm also sticking the VC on him,
        YOLO

James · 06/07/2018 at 14:34

simpson or crisp??
consistency of crisp v the ceiling of simspon

thoughts?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 15:21

    Simmo

    Yeahnahyeah · 06/07/2018 at 15:22

    simpson easily

r_calve · 06/07/2018 at 16:10

so glad I brought in Duncan last night instead of Kennedy, 3 seconds before the lockout

    Ja191 · 06/07/2018 at 18:12

    one weeks one week, we'll see at the end of the year 😛

trevor · 06/07/2018 at 16:34

How much longer can chaddy stay in the guts of port for? Will he play the season out there?

    BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 16:50

    Wouldn't think Kenny changes a winning formula

    The Ranger · 06/07/2018 at 17:00

    I bloody hope so Trev. Can't see any reason for Hinkley to change it.

      trevor · 06/07/2018 at 17:20

      i can either trade rice up to simpson or i can go rice to wingard vis sicilys DPP and the extra cash will go toward my nicnat trade next week to hopefully grundy

        The Ranger · 06/07/2018 at 18:06

        If it's get Simpson or get Wingard and Grundy then the latter wins out for sure.

Bonkers · 06/07/2018 at 16:47

why such little love for M.Crouch at 480k?
adelaide coach assures us his hand is a minor fracture…

    BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 16:50

    You answered your own question.

    Jace · 06/07/2018 at 16:51

    What about Gibbs look at his scores when Sloane plays round 1-4 & 15, scored 100+ in every game when Sloane plays.
    What do you think?

      The Ranger · 06/07/2018 at 16:59

      I was tempted Jace but it's a decent sized risk.

        Bonkers · 06/07/2018 at 17:07

        Hadn’t even considered Gibbs. May have a look now

        Jace · 06/07/2018 at 17:18

        It's hard for me to talk about a crows player, because I'm a Port supporter.
        But when it comes to supercoach i go with my head not my heart.

red5 · 06/07/2018 at 18:09

What are peoples thoughts on Mclean. He seems like good value to me.
He scored 102 last week
3 crap scores in rounds 11 to 14
Averaged 110 from rounds 1 to 10.
Has he had a role change, carrying injury or just 3 rounds of bad form?

    Ja191 · 06/07/2018 at 18:11

    he's a 10/10 for value get him in if you don't have him he had a slight shoulder injury but looks to have recovered with 10+ tackles last week

      red5 · 06/07/2018 at 18:17

      Thanks Ja
      the shoulder injury makes sense

    hedski · 06/07/2018 at 18:17

    Robbie Gray zinged into his shoulder red5, think he played sore for a week or two after that, good to go.

AdsyAA · 06/07/2018 at 19:07

Who would be your go-to defender under 425k? Not much on offer but Fyfe to Beams leaves me with this much if I chop Rice (haha sorry). Looking at Macmillan from North, Scharenberg or Geary. Or another if I could make a case for them. Can't afford a donut this time of the year with where I'm at in the league unfortunately.

    Yeahnahyeah · 06/07/2018 at 19:14

    Witherden maybe? Has the potential

      AdsyAA · 06/07/2018 at 19:23

      Yep probably best out of the lot. If I can get his 117 against the Bombers again I'd be happy.

    Trades · 06/07/2018 at 19:33

    Wait for Webster

    Nuggety · 06/07/2018 at 19:38

    Marchbank if you have huge nuts..

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 06/07/2018 at 20:16

    Hibberd? burnt a lot of people who started him, including me, but worth a go at 362k? Could finish off the season alright

SC_Sixty6 · 06/07/2018 at 19:30

He has nothing better to do than reply to our posts. Their site must of crashed and burned. Unfortunate because now they are dribbling crap on here.

    BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 19:38

    Am I in any leagues with you Sixty6 or Wow? What's your team names?

    Also just seeking confirmation as to whether you VC'd Dangerfield for the first time since round 5?

    Both of you need to chill out, Rusty is a valued member of the community. You don't need to take any advice from anyone if you don't want to.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 19:42

    Are you referring to the question I asked you in the Captain McCaptainface thread?..it was just an honest question, not sure why you two are being so nasty and abusive? Good to see you've kissed and made up though.

          Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:16

          Wouldn't be surprised Henry, they've already run off a lot of regular contributors to this site with their negativity and abuse…hence, there's hardly anyone here tonight.

            Dale · 06/07/2018 at 21:38

            What is the other site they regulars have gone too?

              Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:43

              Fantasysupercoach.com Dale, a few regulars also post there, because it's a flog free zone, those two don't have access, although they read it everyday lol.

Of course Crouch is killing it…

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 20:53

    Yeah his fractured hand doesn't seem to be bothering him too much! 60+ at half time.

    Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 21:00

    I may have put the VC on him lmao. Thought a hail mary would be a good idea since the captain is going on Gawn anyway

    Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 21:38

    And he has fallen off the face of the earth just like last week

      Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:40

      Reckon he could still ton up for you DM.

Steeeve · 06/07/2018 at 20:53

Every week I want to rage trade Dusty. Every week I don't. Fyfe gets injured and I tell myself this is why I can't trade Dusty. Trades are precious. Then the next Tigers game starts and it does my head in. Dusty just streamed toward goal then fumbled a handpass my 2yo daughter would have caught. It's okay, I think, he's picked it back up. Then he blatantly throws the ball. Likely goal becomes a free against (and maybe a clanger). Bloke is way off the level required to be considered a premo. I just hope I have one trade left and a full team in the last round of the Supercoach season. I will trade Dusty out to almost anyone. It's just a pity he will be priced at 400k by then.

    Trades · 06/07/2018 at 20:59

    Regretting trading Taranto now, should've traded Martin instead

    Steeeve · 06/07/2018 at 21:20

    Martin gifted a kick inside 50 to start the third. Almost missed his foot. Bugger me.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/07/2018 at 18:27

    I love your thinking.

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 20:58

Zorko and Billings or Heppell and Curnow?

    Dale · 06/07/2018 at 21:38

    Zorko & billings

      BlueBaggerJosh · 07/07/2018 at 00:26

      What scares me off is that all of Billings good scores have been in wins

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 01:06

    can you afford maybe walters and shuey?

      BlueBaggerJosh · 07/07/2018 at 01:21

      If I get Shuey I can afford any FWD 510k downwards. Just don't trust Shuey if I'm being honest

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 08:22

    Heppell and Charlie

NoLanguage · 06/07/2018 at 20:58

Anyone else pulled the Fyfe to Higgins trade?

    Mystic_Mac · 06/07/2018 at 21:31

    Yep

Murray · 06/07/2018 at 21:03

Is Holman to shuey a good trade or is just a sideways trade and a waste

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:13

    It'd be a waste if Shuey gets injured again but I think he'll outscore Holman the rest of the year Murray.

      Murray · 06/07/2018 at 21:25

      Thanks next question is I will have 4 trades left after I trade Fyfe to gaff. should I save the shuey trade as it would leave me with 3 only

        Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:30

        Yeah maybe I think, unless you have to…once you run out, it all goes to hell so have to try and save a few at least for the finals.

          Murray · 06/07/2018 at 21:36

          Thanks rusty as much as I would like to bring in shuey I think I need to save trades for finals. I am 1st and 3rd in cash leagues and trades are critical. Who knows what might happen between now and finals

Ben · 06/07/2018 at 21:05

Should I hold fyfe and get crouch Next Week seeing as his hand looks fine or go gaff this week or maybe even beams

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 21:19

    Go gaff

Mystic_Mac · 06/07/2018 at 21:28

🤔

Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 21:29

Martin has had such a third rate game

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:35

    Yay!…Dusty just did something good haha

    Crow94 · 06/07/2018 at 21:36

    Such an overrated player tbh

      Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:45

      He'll be lucky to get 80 the way he's going…disappointing.

Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:39

Dusty's not doing so great but no one's mentioned Laird…on 49 at almost 3/4 time…aaaah

    Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 21:42

    Everyone has him so it doesn't matter that much. Maybe if someone has VC on him it matters

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/07/2018 at 21:52

      I suggested flicking him if he misses the 2 games b4 Adelaides bye. The question I was asking "can he average even 95 on the run home"

      Sometimes a POD move is trading out a popular player.
      I held him though lol

        Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:55

        That would be a real shark move Dave….:) Must be satisfying for the Tigers to flog the Crows again like they did in the GF, they have been decimated with injuries though.

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/07/2018 at 22:03

          Yup Crows are not making the 8
          But a good time to stick with the new faces for the rest of the year.

        Randomcliche2 · 06/07/2018 at 22:04

        I didn't have him for some stupid hunch reason. Was very productive not having over they byes. Bought him straight in after that though. Easy top 5 defender on the way home I think.

Ftb · 06/07/2018 at 21:41

Gaff, higgings, Neale?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 21:45

    Gaff's been ultra-consistent this year, Eagles could finish well when Darling and JJK get back in a week or 2.

      Ftb · 06/07/2018 at 21:46

      Ya reckon gaff? Otherwise I could wait a week for Macrae?

        Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:01

        Macrae will have come back from an injury though mate, and will have missed quite a few games, could take him some time to get back into the groove, I'd still go Gaff.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/07/2018 at 21:47

Doedee will you be a premo next year? Nearly that now on debut… 10 scores over 80 and 5 of them over 100 after this game.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:00

    Reckon he'll start next year at about 450 to 470K Dave.

    BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 22:04

    I'm happy with him at D6

    Steeeve · 06/07/2018 at 22:05

    Traded him out for T Mac. Should have kept Doedee.
    Also traded Tim Kelly for Dusty. Could have saved both trades and gained points.

      Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:23

      I feel your pain Steve, also traded Doedee and Kelly to no one of any consequence…cest la vie.

        Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 22:27

        Not as bad as Doedee to Menegola around 6 weeks ago

          Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:29

          Menegola's really gone backwards mate, you weren't to know it would pan out like that.

Mystic_Mac · 06/07/2018 at 21:49

Did you pull the trigger on Sloane, 66? 85 point quarter should get him to your magic 150 🤣

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:04

    I'll answer because he decided he wanted to enter one of my Leagues, no he didn't, was probably trying to lead people astray, he brought Charlie Curnow in for ZGL this week 🙂

      BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 22:29

      Please confirm whether he VC'd Dangerfield Rusty?

        Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:39

        Yeah he did BB, C on Gawn as of now.

          BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 22:41

          Who would VC Danger!?!?!?!!?

          He's been irrelevant since round 5!?!?!

            Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:45

            Well…………………..lol, I can't answer that haha

              Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 15:10

              Couldn't care less about that league mate..Rice to Oscar McDonald this week ay?…there's a big move, must've really not wanted to munch on a Donut I guess, another trade down, good to have cover on the bench though. 🙂

                ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 16:01

                Can't have anymore than 1 trade left now. That's a huge risk with 7 rounds left

                  Sc_Wow · 07/07/2018 at 16:29

                  Worry about you own team fellas. Couldn’t care less but your checking our teams every 5 minutes? Sad

                    Loop · 08/07/2018 at 05:50

                    I think that most people are watching your team and hoping that it'll crash and burn.

                    Rob · 08/07/2018 at 09:46

                    That’s quite bitter. Seems to be a lot of jealous people on this page

                    theRealPod · 08/07/2018 at 09:55

                    Not bitter Rob just happy to see the inevitable unfolding. Move on.

                    Rob · 08/07/2018 at 10:34

                    I for one rate his advice, I’d sure be happy if I could be ranked that high

                    Loop · 08/07/2018 at 10:26

                    No not bitter at all – just an observation.

            SC_Sixty6 · 07/07/2018 at 17:06

            Really BB? I VC danger because I wanted my VC out of the way as gawn will dominate. Grow up

      Lazza · 06/07/2018 at 23:53

      F7?

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 14:35

      Charlie is in beast mode today!

Defying_Madness · 06/07/2018 at 22:06

Dusty almost on more points than Crouch. Just showing how stupid the scoring system is…

ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/07/2018 at 22:12

Scores right now are similar to that grand final

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:21

    Yeah that turned boring pretty quick…and why the hell isn't the grand Final on Foxtel in HD yet?…!!!

Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:16

Latest comments in Captain McCaptainface is a bit of a lighthearted read if you're up for a laugh 🙂

BrownlowBoy · 06/07/2018 at 22:20

Any chance Hampton keeps his spot next week. Wouldn't mind them giving him another game against Geelong.

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 08:28

    Fingers crossed BB.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:31

Brought in Dusty this week pretty happy in the end. Also happy to have kept Doedee 2 big tons in a row.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2018 at 22:42

    Ballsy man, bringing Dusty IN this week, great call keeping Doedee, he's looking like he could be a keeper.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 06/07/2018 at 23:06

      Yeah $450k to cheap to ignore. Just hoping he can be the sort of player in the run home as last year. Have Austin on the pine in def Spargo Ahern Giro in the mids and Fritsch fwd so looking ok with 7 trades left

        theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 08:27

        Well done Shake. Although Dusty fumbled some easy gets and kicked a few to the shizzen last night, he played solid footy in the second half. Hoping he can come home strong and smash out some monster scores for the run home.

          Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 09:08

          Nearly a 70pt last half hope thats on the upward scale there!

Short Hawk · 06/07/2018 at 22:40

Hey can someone please help me out, I need to pickup a footy record for the Hawks game and need to know what time they start selling them outside Etihad Stadium? (as i will be picking it up and heading out on the train to deliver it)
Cheers

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 23:02

ahern or boak on field? cant believe its come to this point lol

    Corey · 06/07/2018 at 23:23

    Surely Boak against St Kilda

      theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 08:24

      Surely Ahern vs Suns at Etihad!?!

Stretch Marks · 06/07/2018 at 23:06

Should I take Seedsman’s 81 or loophole Hibberd?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 23:12

    Take

      Electric Blues · 06/07/2018 at 23:45

      Hibberd 60-90 range – no need to take the risk 81 is solid.
      Hibberd only 5 scores over 78 all season (14 games) ave of 76.6.

    Corey · 06/07/2018 at 23:24

    I’d take it Hibberd hasn’t tonned up all year

Corey · 06/07/2018 at 23:24

Who are we throwing the VC on this week community
I’m going with Cripps

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/07/2018 at 23:26

    same

    Electric Blues · 06/07/2018 at 23:40

    Curnow will score higher than Cripps this week.

    VC Gawn or Titch
    C Grundy (wont be needed though)

    The_Blacksheep · 07/07/2018 at 01:47

    I'm going Cripps into Gawn.

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 08:21

    Gawn VC. The Dees should smash the Dockers up north in the forecasted warm weather.

Daniel · 06/07/2018 at 23:37

Should i take the risk vc'ing rocky or wingard, or play it safe and vc gawn and captain pendles?

    Electric Blues · 06/07/2018 at 23:50

    Rocky or Wingard should not even be in anyone's team let alone VC.
    VC Gawn or Titch
    C Grundy, Kelly, etc
    Pendles ceiling is to low for the C.

      Ben · 06/07/2018 at 23:59

      Wingard is a good selection I brought him in at 370 and has averaged 100 for me at f6

trevor · 07/07/2018 at 00:32

zorko or beams???

both found some form…
want a POD instead of gaff

    Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 01:54

    Beams

    Saddy · 07/07/2018 at 02:21

    E.Curnow at 520k

      trevor · 07/07/2018 at 08:41

      Got curnow.
      Really want either Zorko or beams both huge ceiling but beams 37 & 66 worries me in his last 8 rounds .

        Johnny · 07/07/2018 at 09:09

        Zorko & beams both able to go big Trev.
        Just looked at there last 8 or so rounds.
        Beams had 2 stinkers then all 100+
        Zorko all 90+. Looks more consistent and his bad games not as bad.

        Zorko for me

    Cyriledagain · 07/07/2018 at 10:32

    I went Zorko – can go large and is POD.

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 11:36

    Beams is playing good footy

Micky Q · 07/07/2018 at 06:33

Any updates on my bench players as i am almost stuck (full premo at least) with only 4 trades left and 9k in the bank: T.Duman, J.Ridley, E.Phillips, K.Mutch, T.Smith, J.Battle, T.Olango.
Heeney/Smith/Battle would mean a donut.

    Big fact hunt · 07/07/2018 at 10:42

    With only 4 trades left I would cop a donut and hope like hell you don’t get to many injuries. I would take the next good forward rookie on the bubble preferably dual position.

      Micky Q · 07/07/2018 at 13:52

      Simpson out now could equal 2 donuts, what now?

FearTheBeard · 07/07/2018 at 09:53

Ward, Gaff, Higgins?

Stupid Coach · 07/07/2018 at 10:31

Nice work Patch. I need a really good laugh at this stage of the season. I don't have the issue with Fyfe but is probably one of many reasons why I am doing so poorly this season. I am down to 8 trades and only 40k. Was going to bring in Ainsworth (WC) for Phillips and upgrade Guelfi to McLean. However, based on your advice I am not sure whether I should proceed with these trades. I forgot to swap Petracca and Heeney (on my forward bench) and put Giro on the field so now I have T Smith on the field with no bench cover. Should I bring in someone like Powell (GC) for T Smith instead and the upgrade Guelfi to McLean or should I just hold and cop a donut on the field.

BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 12:22

Kade Simpson is out. Panic!!!!!

    Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 12:27

    thank god for tom cole will probably only get 40 but better than a donut

    Unlucky · 07/07/2018 at 12:34

    Of course my opponent doesn't have him. Like last week they didn't have heeney or Fyfe.

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 12:40

    Urgh I have to burn a trade to avoid a donut

    The Ranger · 07/07/2018 at 12:44

    Arse. Is that a definite BB? Can't find any news on it.

      Out · 07/07/2018 at 12:45

      Fanfooty has him late out

        The Ranger · 07/07/2018 at 12:54

        Gonna burn a trade and bring in Mihocek for Ridley. Hate that.

          Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 12:56

          I'd rather trade out Simpson, there is a chance he misses more than 1

            The Ranger · 07/07/2018 at 13:18

            Not trading premos unless I really have to at this stage of the season.
            With no cover on the DEF line I was considering bringing in Mihocek all week so this just locks it in.
            He's got good JS with so many injuries at Collingwood.

      BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 12:54

      Carlton twitter reported he is out with calf tightness and is replaced by Darcy Lang.

      Beezneez · 07/07/2018 at 13:05

      HS also confirmed.

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 12:46

    Does he miss more than 1 week?

      Out · 07/07/2018 at 12:56

      I doubt it, "tight calf"

Damo · 07/07/2018 at 12:30

Can't decide what to do with Fyfe. Gaff is a great option but I want to save some cash so I can upgrade Guelfi or Austin in the next week or 2. I'm tossing up between Heppell, Beams and Adams…any thoughts?

hedski · 07/07/2018 at 12:47

Who comes on field for Simmo, Mihocek or Austin??????

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 12:48

    Must be nice to have that option. Probably Mihocek?

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 13:00

    I went Austin Hedski

    Beezneez · 07/07/2018 at 13:07

    Thought I was having bad luck. Good thing is most people have him. I was lucky to be able to DPP with Sicily and Keeffe

      Beezneez · 07/07/2018 at 13:09

      Supposed to be a reply to Johnny in next post

    hedski · 07/07/2018 at 13:16

    Cheers lads one all!!
    Think I'll give Mihocek a run and bang the E on Austin in case there's more shenanigans.

      Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:19

      Good luck hedski. Do you think it is better to trade a backline rookie donut out or Simpson himself?
      I am worried that he might miss more than 1 and since I have to burn a trade either way trading him out gives me more points

        hedski · 07/07/2018 at 13:33

        Not sure what I'd do in that position DM, hard to tell how long he'll be out, who would you bring in?

        Edit to above, I've decided to field Austin.

          Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:34

          Probably Crisp, maybe Tmac

            hedski · 07/07/2018 at 13:36

            I'd want bench cover in case the same thing happens next week or the week after, who you got on the pine?

              Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:38

              Ridley and Heron.

                hedski · 07/07/2018 at 13:41

                Bugger, tough decision to make mate, good luck.👍

                  Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:44

                  I brought in Tmac lets hope this doesnt backfire

Johnny · 07/07/2018 at 12:49

I literally traded in Simpson 15 minutes ago!!!! Argh!!!!!!!

    That sucks · 07/07/2018 at 12:57

    Brutal

    BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 12:57

    That's mighty unfortunate.

      Johnny · 07/07/2018 at 13:06

      Please be 1 week minimum. I luckily have naughton and Taylor. But woulda went crisp I had of known

    neil demons delight · 07/07/2018 at 13:52

    Who said there's no luck in this game. Still could have waited to last minute.I feel for you Johnny as I traded him in also 5 mins before the injury Lesson learnt hopefully only a niggle

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 15:01

    Ouch big time!

Willymack1234 · 07/07/2018 at 12:54

Either cop a donut for simmo or burn 1 of my last 3 trades?

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 12:56

    I think I am trading out Simpson. If we do nothing and he doesn't play next week we are stuffed

      Willymack1234 · 07/07/2018 at 12:58

      It’s a tough decision, a calf complaint at his age isn’t a good sign

        Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:00

        Yeah I am looking at Crisp and Tmac

Richard · 07/07/2018 at 13:02

Gaff or Josh Kelly for Fyfe? I cam afford both

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 13:03

    I am probs going with Kelly

TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 13:08

Simmo thrown a spanner in the works. This is my combos I’m playing around with

Option 1
Oliver / Austin / Richards
Try upgrade to Lloyd next week

Option 2
Beams / Westhoff / Richards
Miss out on Lloyd

I have 9 trades left

    Johnny · 07/07/2018 at 13:12

    2 by a mile. Lloyd is too pricey. Westhoff far better than Austin and beams has hitform I traded him in half hour ago myself to afford Simpson…. now his a late out 🙁

oliverfisher · 07/07/2018 at 13:12

Who is the best downgrade option this week, either Forward or Defence? Rice and Heron on my bench, so I don't have any coverage for Simpson,but can also swing Sicily down back if I trade out Rice.

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/07/2018 at 13:23

Simmo out, Mihocek now is your time to shine in your true position

gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 13:46

I give this game up .. Simmo out now ffs

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 14:20

    Gator did u stuff up your capt choice?

      gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 15:04

      Yes I did Shake I was out on thurs night and never even give it a thought until I looked last night… Titch will go huge again I think

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 15:11

        🤦‍♂️

        hedski · 07/07/2018 at 15:26

        Just noticed that Gator, got you in Chatter Boxers. Should be safe with Maxy mate.

          gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 15:36

          just worried about the heat up in Darwin… I think he may dominate though hedski

        JEL · 07/07/2018 at 15:35

        Did the same last week, still had the C on Nank from the week before, who played on the Thurs night.
        Luckily he went ok, but these Thurs games are a trap.

          gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 15:48

          They are crap and the AFL can go and get fruit caked over them

            JEL · 07/07/2018 at 18:27

            Plans are to have even more next year, apparently Adelaide Oval is looking for 6 games.

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 14:31

    Agreed Gator! I'm munching a big tasty Donut

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 14:31

      Damn… Mihocek do me wonders plz!

      gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 15:04

      Same here pieman

Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 13:51

Very lucky Carlton play before stkilda because have Doedee as emg on the pine. At least l was able to swap Simpson with Austin. Still keep Doedee score.

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/07/2018 at 13:59

Was already playing with a 0 from liam ryan and now with simpson out ill only get the score from 20 players, this round is write off as well jesus

    sc tragic · 07/07/2018 at 14:28

    Just discovered at 1/4 time Simpson was out, already moved Sicily to fwd line for Heeney, replaced him with Logan from the bench, now I have to burn a trade or face a donut. What a bummer.

INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 14:37

I can't watch the Lions vs the Blues any longer. It's like watching Auskick

    theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 15:00

    Snore fest.

      INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 16:05

      VFL is better

BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 14:55

Did anyone go Beams?
85 at half time.

    Derek · 07/07/2018 at 14:57

    He was my Fyfe replacement

      BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 15:04

      Great pickup there Derek!

      Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 15:15

      Nice work mate..good pickup.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 07/07/2018 at 14:58

    Got Charlie in, 14 at HT 😭, if Billings tears it up I'm done

    Jace · 07/07/2018 at 15:08

    Yep I went Beams and put the VC on him, so far so good!!!!

      Derek · 07/07/2018 at 15:14

      He is carrying my C in my draft league this week as well.

    Maverick_ · 07/07/2018 at 15:26

    i went beams and VCd him!!
    happy days.

    on a sour note i went rice to k.simpson this morning, ouch!

    TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 15:32

    Yep jumped on last minute. Thanks Johnny for backing me up on it

      Johnny · 07/07/2018 at 15:45

      your welcome bozz. beams & hoff were a better combo than oliver & austin.

    Loop · 08/07/2018 at 05:43

    Got him in round 12 and he scored 37. Happier with him now….

theRealPod · 07/07/2018 at 14:59

Blue baggers tanking??

    Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 15:12

    nah I think they're just shite

Bobby Gee · 07/07/2018 at 15:12

Current trade plan is being reconsidered given news that NicNat might miss. WCE last game of the round making it hard too.

Option 1
Banfield-Gaff & Guelfi-Sier this week, then Fyfe-Oliver next week. 5 trades left.

Option 2
Fyfe-Gaff & NicNat-Grundy this week, then Banfield-Sier & Guelfi-490k MID next week. 4 trades left.

Thoughts?

Blue Bags 15cents · 07/07/2018 at 15:14

the RealPod (reply)
Blue baggers tanking??
————————————————————————–

skill level is always ordinary but NO EFFORT TODAY.

Hawthorn have been keeping a eye on Levi Casboult and could be sniffing around for a trade at the end of the season.
H.McKay and C.Curnow will be a damn good setup but no Phillips has to get a game SMH.

Carlton Midfield is hopeless apart from Cripps and Curnow – they need 20-24 YO established quality MIDS not blowing draft picks on ordinary selections year after year.

    BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 15:21

    Sam Walsh would go alright for the Blues.

      gator59 · 07/07/2018 at 15:34

      The GWS seconds are going alright…lol

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 16:11

    If I was calling out pick 1 for the Blues I'd have no hesitation picking Isaac Rankine. Rolled gold JET

      neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 17:47

      lockosious and sam walsh will be good pies but agree Rankine is the one I hope they don't get him but Kennedy -Harris would be a walk up

Kanga · 07/07/2018 at 15:21

More donuts here than at the police station.
Heeney (no cover) Simpson (no cover) and now NicNat?
Not trading (3 left) this week its a write-off!

Maverick_ · 07/07/2018 at 15:28

replaced fyfe with beams this morning & VC'd him.
The cash saved allowed me to go simpson also.
leaves a sour taste. atleast beams is looking after me 🙂

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 16:14

    Hope it didn't cost you a donut

      Maverick_ · 07/07/2018 at 17:01

      luckily i have naughton and taylor on the pine pieman. just gotta decide which of the 2 to play.
      hope simmo is only 1 week

        INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 17:18

        I'd give Naughton a run

Derek · 07/07/2018 at 15:34

with Pickett back, thought Carlton would have improved

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 16:14

    He's got nice wheels, but that's about it

BadgerHoney7 · 07/07/2018 at 16:02

Titch or Gawn for C

    Cobee Bear · 07/07/2018 at 16:03

    Flip a coin

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/07/2018 at 16:06

    I am going Gawn.

      Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 16:09

      yep same titch will cop dunkley tag

        Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 14:21

        CORRECT HE DID. LUCKY I WENT GAWN

          Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 14:22

          woops sorry capslock

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/07/2018 at 18:29

    Titch

Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 16:20

how is polson getting a game? he is beyond terrible

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 16:32

    Did they find him on the street when Simmo was a late out?

Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 16:27

Danger dusty titch Fyfe Kelly Cripps cogs rocky is my current midfield need a replacement for Fyfe and player I like best is Oliver. He has a huge breakeven of 167 so plan is to bring in westboff and swing him forward and trade Oliver in when he bottoms out. Is this a good plan or should i just go straight for Oliver

    JohnDJ59 · 07/07/2018 at 18:21

    Go with your first plan, both are good players.

      Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 18:25

      Yeah went through with the westhoff trade as long as Oliver doesn't go 140+ it will have worked out

        Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 22:35

        Not a great trade in hindsight clarry high score hurts but westhoff was decent and needed to try and squeeze every dollar I can to eventually bring in Lloyd come finals time.

          TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 22:39

          Still can’t complain with Westhoff’s score. Still target Oliver next week

          There’s some good cheaper backs like Brayshaw who can pump out decent scores. He was one I was looking at passed on

            Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 22:44

            yeah cant complain happy with westhoff score and if oliver BE is less than 100 he will certainly be coming in. i could go for a brayshaw type but have my eyes set on lloyd with his docherty like scores. terrible value but i will need him for finals considering his ownership

Richard · 07/07/2018 at 16:39

Should i take Zorko's 129 or punt on Gawn going bigger than the 129 ?

    INPieman · 07/07/2018 at 17:19

    Take it. Remember what happened to Fyfe last week

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/07/2018 at 17:33

    Grab the 129 and run mate!

    Richard · 07/07/2018 at 18:39

    Thanks boys i'll stick with Zorko

TOPHAWK1 · 07/07/2018 at 16:40

Seriously thinking of going Fyfe to Higgins or Lachie Neale today. Just one trade. (6 trades left) Then hope Sier produces tomorrow. Then grab him next week for a T Smith or Murphy via DPP to raise cash. Then will have 5 trades with $150K for the run home. Higgins or Neale? Not going Gaff as most coaches are trading him in and I want more PODS.

    Maverick_ · 07/07/2018 at 16:59

    if you want a POD then higgins… neale would be less of a pod than gaff nearly.
    Higgins is red hot form also

    NoLanguage · 08/07/2018 at 05:20

    Higgins Hawk. Career best footy with a great run home for the Roos

Jim_bob321 · 07/07/2018 at 16:59

Need some help here guys…
Thinking of putting the C on Gawn, but have had a terrible start to the week (Mitch Robinson yay!!!!!)
So what does the community think..
Leave the C on Gawn or try a POD Captain like Bont.
Please, I really need the help, cheers community

    pigjumpprusik · 07/07/2018 at 18:09

    Don't overthink it, Robbo should have no impact on whether you captain Gawn or not

      John · 07/07/2018 at 18:27

      … It kinda does
      Robbo's 40 causes me to think of a pod captain…
      If i captain Gawn like everyone else, i cant potentially increase my output at a greater rate..
      lmao its simple maths

        pigjumpprusik · 08/07/2018 at 11:19

        Captain the best player available, use the VC for pod options and loophole if it pays off, that's what it's for.

        There's a good reason why everyone captained Gawn, with Sandilands out, should have and did score big.

Cobee Bear · 07/07/2018 at 17:04

Robbie Gray somehow on 20SC points at qtr time

John · 07/07/2018 at 17:16

put the C on Titch or Gawn?

    Derek · 07/07/2018 at 18:30

    You would think Gawn against Darcy first game for year, but I won’t be surprised to see a very improved Darcy from last year, but might run out of puff especially in the heat.

      Ahmad rubas · 07/07/2018 at 18:36

      Darcy is a big body heavier than Gawn surprisingly. But Gawn should destroy a 20 yo in his first game of the season

    JohnDJ59 · 07/07/2018 at 20:54

    I went Titch VC so you better go Gawn.

PizzaSafety · 07/07/2018 at 17:28

Redman and Ridley on my bench so copping a donut for Simmo. Come on Ridley get 30 in the VFL tomorrow son so you can get a call up, we at Essendon can play you with Goddard and Hurley 😀 😀

neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 17:56

He enjoys it though Kylie and isn't that 's what it's about fun and good banter and advice Just remember the site was great last year before you lobbed– move on

    SC_Sixty6 · 07/07/2018 at 18:26

    Surprised there were no CAPITALS. CHEERS 66 GOODLUCK

    neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 18:44

    And that's one of your rare sentences without spelling mistakes congratulations Crows going well

      SC_Sixty6 · 07/07/2018 at 18:46

      Why are you giving Davey boy crap about his beloved crows? Not nice Niall.

      Also you need a full stop and a comma in your previous sentence. Grammar police need to get it right themselves before trying to be a smart arse.

        neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 19:14

        Ha Ha Kylie coming from you the king of incorrect spelling There's instead of Theirs were for where and, listen to me sonny, this used to be a happy site and it can be again

          Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 22:26

          Probably cause they're both 15 years old Neil, and have no real AFL experience, and learned to spell from the spellchecker on their smartphones.

            neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 22:49

            hey Russty know what I was before retiring An English teacher They just don't know do they complete jerks. nice battle in Cazaly mate

              Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 22:51

              I think you've got me there mate, and deserve to, I'm way back in that League..hoping I can make 5 top 8's in my 10 leagues, those asshats wouldn't understand league fun because they have no mates lol.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 18:08

    Ouch.. my Fyfe to Neale trade wasn't much better

Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 18:30

joyce on a respectable 0 at 3 quarter time

dontblushbaby · 07/07/2018 at 18:51

Rocky,Rocky,Rocky – reminds me of a movie

    TOPHAWK1 · 07/07/2018 at 19:25

    Rocky and Wingard!! Lovin it

Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 18:54

Wingard has been such a good pick for me. Absolutely been loving watching him play over the last month

smart as s · 07/07/2018 at 19:03

I have sicily and lachlan murphy as emergencies for simpson, will i get sicily's score or the 0?

    Ja191 · 07/07/2018 at 19:12

    if Murphy didn't play you'll get sicily's score

      smart as s · 07/07/2018 at 19:14

      awesome thanks

Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 19:06

Who to start Fritch or Walters 🤔

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 19:09

    Walters for sure. Should get some more mid time hopefully

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 19:12

      Fritch against freo. He did kick 4 last week DM.

    BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 19:16

    Do you have anyone else?

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 19:42

      No started Boak, Battle on the pine already couldnt loop. Maybe Smith on the pine?

Yeahnahyeah · 07/07/2018 at 19:17

how does Robbie Gray score so well? He's a great player but I mean he had 12 effective disposals, 3 tackles and a goal and scores 109?

    BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 19:22

    He gets some points from his influence.
    Things like his tap ons, pressure earn him points.

    Holty01 · 07/07/2018 at 19:28

    8 score involvements, 1 assist, 3 contested marks, 10 contested possessions. It all adds up. Think he deserved the score today but i do question some of his scores.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 22:19

      best South Aussie player for many years now

BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 19:25

Darragh Joyce who is he?

-3 points from 72% TOG

Went at 0% de from 3 kicks and gave away 2 free kicks.

Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 21:17

Ryan going for another stinker

    Defying_Madness · 07/07/2018 at 22:13

    Don't have the trades for that lmao. Had to burn a trade on Simmo this week, as long as they play I'll keep them from this point on

Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 21:31

Gunston gave me a small heart attack -3 qtr time!

TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 21:52

Anyone know how the emergency scores work? Is it lowest of two emergencies? I’ve stupidly left the E on Giro, so if I sub off Conglio for Dawson to take Gawns VC score, will I be stuck with lowest score between Giro and Cogs?

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 07/07/2018 at 22:03

    Yes it would be the lowest score

      TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 22:31

      Dang it. Gonna have to miss Gawn and go with Grundy. No other options unless there’s a late out

        Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 22:33

        Grundy will do ok Bozza, hopefully he'll get somewhere near Gawn's score.

          TheGreatBozza · 07/07/2018 at 22:37

          Yeah I’m not too concerned Rusty. It’s just annoying I butchered a guarantee 150 captain score.

          How you looking this week?

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/07/2018 at 22:16

Titch C, arrrgghhhhhh

Lekdog · 07/07/2018 at 22:23

How good was Daniel Rich today? Gun.

    BrownlowBoy · 07/07/2018 at 22:27

    And your mate Chad Lek!

      Lekdog · 07/07/2018 at 22:33

      Chadley performed very well!

        SC_Kev7 · 08/07/2018 at 09:36

        Jumped on the Chad bandwagon this week, Lek. Safety bar in position. Hands, feet, legs, and arms are inside ride at all times. Let's do this!

          Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 17:31

          My favourite ride

    JEL · 08/07/2018 at 15:03

    Stay away from the light…….. i mean Rich

Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 22:39

Hey Lek, just wondering, with all the abuse, drama, belittling, humiliating, name calling, boasting and outright bullying that SC-Wow and SC-sixty6 offer up on this site every day, why is it that they haven't been permanently banned from here?
No one here appreciates the crap and drama they bring here, and the only likes they ever get are from eachother. (an average of 2)
I know this will be deleted but please tell me why you allow this kind of toxic cancer to remain here…when it's obviously no good for the wellbeing of the site and keeps good long term members away because they can't stand their constant crap?

    neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 22:56

    wont get anywhere mate but one wonders . A lot of good people are gone chased off and new ppl don't enjoy the crap and insults still Kylie and Tossa are immune apparently

    AuroraBorealis?! · 07/07/2018 at 23:08

    They haven't been banned because the admins of the site can't take sides in squabbles between members. Obviously a lot of the stuff they say is rather belittling (mostly in the case of 66), but they also offer up constructive criticism and sound advice. Nobody says anything when they do/say anything good, but as soon they come across as offensive everyone jumps down their throats. The fact that they are not CONSTANTLY rude and 'troll-like' means that banning them would be incredibly unfair, and as such it will not happen.

      Russty_ · 07/07/2018 at 23:24

      Sorry mate but I beg to differ…more often than not they will tend to ridicule and mock people for their opinions…and don't really offer any "sound" advice at all, In the last few months they've gone out of their way to attack and alienate as many long time regular contributors to this site as they could, wise knowledgeable people who have been posting here for a long time.
      Not sure why you're defending their actions really because they are really non defensible.
      I'm sure most people would rather hear from long term experienced posters than these two hacks who have no proof of their claims of greatness, who only blew in like a pair of tumbleweeds this year.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/07/2018 at 23:48

        What do you think constantly means AB?
        Every week? Every few days? Every Article?

        It's been nearly every Article so it's very much constantly

          AuroraBorealis?! · 08/07/2018 at 00:10

          I would define constantly as how it is literally defined. That they are ALWAYS (as in every single comment) throwing out some sort of vile insult or slander at another member. I'm not defending their actions, i'm more trying to explain why the admins cant just ban them for how they are. The only grounds they would have for permanently banning them is if they were literally only commenting things that were heavily abusive in nature e.g "You're sh*t at supercoach you f*ckhead and i hope your entire family gets murdered because of it". I personally haven't seen any thing of this nature being said by either of them, and i'm saying that just generally being arrogant, narcissistic and full of themselves isn't enough to get them banned. I would also like to point out that the majority of the aggressive stuff comes from 66, and that in some cases Wow gets unfairly grouped into that category. I feel like he is normally pretty relaxed and level-headed in the things he says.

      Marty · 08/07/2018 at 19:28

      Whydo people say 'they' when they are obviously one person?

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:37

      Not meaning to sink the boots in but when someone asked the question earlier in the week…" Beams or Pendles this week?", 66 replied "Neither of them, don't be silly".
      If that's sound advice I'll eat my hat.

    dognino · 08/07/2018 at 00:39

    Rusty you’re the most annoying and childish one on this site, with all the baiting you throw out. Just get over it, don’t comment about them and 3/4 of the crap you’re complaining about would not be posted in the first place.

      Holty01 · 08/07/2018 at 16:35

      Russty is just passionate about this site and doesnt like what these 2 have/are doing. Most of the regulars who have been here for years have a problem with these 2 but the new ones to the site i cant comment on as i wouldnt know. I have a lot of time for Russty but will agree he could of handled these 2 differently at times. You need to remember this has been a place where people could have a suggestion, ask a question with no fear of being ridiculed or belittled. This is what these 2 did as soon as they joined this site telling everyone how superior they were and everyone were irrelevant. People ignored them at first thinking they would leave or at the very least improve but you can only put up with arrogance for so long until you have had enough. People act to it differently and Russty is handling it head on. He isnt only defending himself but also others in the community and those who have left because they have had enough. I will give SC WOW his credit as he has tried and improve his behaviour but as the old saying goes 'first impressions last a lifetime' has not helped him. In the end, people handle themselves differently. I am handling it by not visiting this site as often and obviously not posting as often. Although i doubt I'll be missed if I end up leaving, we have however lost some people (and maybe more) whose wisdom people have valued.

        Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:46

        Cheers Holty I appreciate the support mate, I admit I haven't always been able to contain my emotions when it came to those 2 but you are 100% correct as to how I feel about this site and how much fun it used to be, hopefully it can get back to how it was last year, a whole bunch of fun with lots of people posting who respect eachother.

    Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 12:10

    Well Russty, because I'm not going to ban someone for being annoying. If our audience doesn't have the presence of mind to ignore 'trolls' then I can't help, it's basic internet etiquette, it's not hard. If someone is 'trolling', don't engage.

    I get notifications for pretty much every comment from the main culprits and for the most part have never seen anything ban-able because being annoying isn't a crime.

    Now, I will say this. Yesterday one of the regular contributors did imply that someone should kill themselves, this is not acceptable. That person has been removed. I expect them to contact me and ask for forgiveness, this will not be happening. There's a few lines we don't cross here, this is a big one.

    As we move forward, I am going to continue not being involved in trolling because it's so easy to not engage with it. I'd hope that everyone else can do the same.

    Like I've said in the past, petty arguing and crossing the line will not be tolerated but being annoying isn't a reason to be banned. If you get baited into arguments because you don't know how to deal with trolls, that's not my fault.

    On the positive side of things, I'm seeing a lot more newcomers commenting on the site, let's keep engaging with them and helping them out!

      Davo · 08/07/2018 at 13:02

      Well put, couldn't be said any better Lekdog.

      zerowins · 08/07/2018 at 13:06

      Who was the idiot that said they should kill themselves. What an absolute fool.

        neil demonsdelight · 08/07/2018 at 13:42

        Absolutely correct for banning this person Lek .No place here for that rubbish. We all handle baiting differently. Rooster and Donkey chose to limit their contributions ,Tophawk tried to draw a line and continue and Russty is defensive after being constantly baited. It is obvious who wrote that comment bagging RUSTY but Russty has every right to defend himself

        BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 13:57

        Sixty6 said it to me.

        I agree with Lek, he crossed the line with what he said.

        Well done Lek for keeping the best interests of the community in mind mate, keep doing what you're doing!

          neil demonsdelight · 08/07/2018 at 14:31

          Didn't matter who said it B B but maybe B1 will wake up and make it pleasant to advise and comment Well done also Lek

          Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 14:42

          He just couldn't help himself that fella he obviously has quite a few mental issues of his own. Knew it would only be a matter of time before he crossed the line…. what to stop him making another account? Didnt he already have a few accounts? Can you block an IP address?

            AuroraBorealis?! · 08/07/2018 at 16:29

            Making the link between telling someone to jump and committing suicide is not far fetched at all, it's very obvious what you mean when you say that

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:49

      Thanks for the reply Lek…I understand your point of view in this situation, it's a shame someone had to resort to such a disgusting act of hate, that is an ugly thing to say to anyone and could result in them actually going through with it, it has happened in the past, Internet bullying is a serious subject and should be dealt with the appropriate actions.
      Well done for your diligence as the administrator of this great site.

      EagleLegal · 08/07/2018 at 19:52

      You should confirm your exposure and legal obligations with a legal professional Lek.
      Australian internet law changed recently and as the .au site owner/administrator you could legally be the publisher of comments in forums that you provide. This is particularly relevant as the latest law changes relate to online bullying and harrassment.

      The_Blacksheep · 08/07/2018 at 20:00

      Onya Lekdog! Well said. What are the chances of Mo' supercoach news coming back?

    BVB21 · 09/07/2018 at 17:29

    Not another one of these threads.

    I value the contribution of people like wow and 66 who contribute valuable advice over your childish threads.

    You need to grow up.

      Russty_ · 18/07/2018 at 22:54

      Which do you value more…the response where 66 called me a Racist pig in a public forum or the response where he told BrownlowBoy to go and kill himself?..for which he was subsequently banned permanently from JR.
      Strange contributions to value…maybe re-consider your values?

Holty01 · 07/07/2018 at 23:12

Love you Roughie.
Been an alright night for me.
Obviously have Roughie, but also Gawn (C), Oliver.
Titch and Mclean were underwhelming but most have them.

    Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 12:11

    Wow Roughie, he's a big…roughy

      Holty01 · 08/07/2018 at 12:38

      Yeah started with him. Was hoping that he would get back to his best. Now he will be my F6/F7.

Steeeve · 07/07/2018 at 23:26

Simpson out and cop the donut, Charlie Curnow spuds, last minute change of caption from Gawn to Titch backfires to the tune of 70 odd points. Another crap week as I slide away from the contenders and back to the pack hello a tank outside 1000

    Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 12:13

    Rough Steve, Charlie is going to do that to you, especially when the Blues aren't playing Casboult or McKay…when we can add forward depth to the side his role may expand beyond the Brendan Fevola game plan (kick it to him and no one else) but until then it'll be a bit rollercoastery

      Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 13:31

      Gee if we had Fev in the side we came 5th with we would of done some real damage

Nifty · 07/07/2018 at 23:36

Thank you Clarry, Maxy & finally Petracca..

    theRealPod · 08/07/2018 at 09:54

    Well done for keeping Tracca. Clarry & Gawn awesome together.

      Nifty · 08/07/2018 at 18:03

      Cheers mate, copped a fair few injuries, so had to hold.

neil demonsdelight · 07/07/2018 at 23:59

Let's hope the three lions win and Chris Froome in the tour de france .A nice double for us Rule Britania

    Lazza · 08/07/2018 at 08:31

    Could be a huge English summer for the poms Neil. F1, World Cup, Le Tour, Cricket, 7s,

      neil demonsdelight · 08/07/2018 at 08:59

      here's hoping

        dontblushbaby · 08/07/2018 at 09:28

        Come on England, its coming home !

Drunkin Kanga · 08/07/2018 at 02:46

Who needs cash for an upgrade next week?
Whatcha gonna do brotha, watcha gonna do when the supercoach gods take a big F'N dump on you?
Any news on non playing E.Phillips, T.Smith and T.Duman?

Who is bringing in B.Lynch? 124k (DEF) 63 & 84

    SC_Kev7 · 08/07/2018 at 09:31

    Only saw bits of the game but loved Lynch's confidence last night in taking the game on. Don't necessarily need the cash, but I got caught last year having no bench cover and I've got Redman's LTI sitting there

    theRealPod · 08/07/2018 at 10:00

    He looks ready made. Have to consider him for bench cover with carnage every week.

    Hawks · 08/07/2018 at 10:07

    Bought him in this week as a downgrade, so I could get Shuey and retain Fyfe as a POD should he return for SC finals.

    Had no intention of fielding Lynch (until Simpson pulled-out), saw his game last week, and again he impressed last night.

Mark · 08/07/2018 at 09:34

Went with Mitchell over Gawn for Captain. Had Gawn locked in for quite a while with no other real ruck to go up against. Should have gone with gut instinct. At least I managed to do some DPP magic as soon as I saw Simpson was a late out. Managed to swing Ahern into the forward slot and get Sicily back into the backline:) 1,775 so far with Coniglio, Smith, Merrett, Kelly, Yeo, and Ahern to come. Projected for 2,354 which I'll take after this crap of a week with Heeny on the bench and bad captain choice. Lowest score so far is Webster's 78:)

    theRealPod · 08/07/2018 at 09:57

    Looking good Mark considering you missed out on Gawn. Good luck for today.

      Mark · 08/07/2018 at 10:05

      cheers, hopefully, can improve on 113 and make it back into the top 100 after this week:) Presuming and hoping a lot of top coaches would have gone with Mitchell as Captain? Don't use assistant so not too sure on live scores and captain choices etc for the week.

    Holty01 · 08/07/2018 at 12:44

    That will be a solid score mate if you reach 2350. Good luck

Hawks · 08/07/2018 at 10:09

I think GWS are a huge chance to beat WCE this afternoon, WCE will win the ruck, but I see GWS dominating the centre clearances.

Am I crazy or do others see it the same way?

    BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 10:26

    I've backed the Giants.

    prizza · 08/07/2018 at 11:07

    Im backing them as well , good things

    Cobee Bear · 08/07/2018 at 11:42

    Picked the Giants, as their midfield should get on top and surge it forward leaving WC without much to transition to. Nic Nat reportedly playing sore as well

    Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 12:13

    I have tipped GWS but I also have like no tips from the round so far haha

Frankston Phil · 08/07/2018 at 13:22

I can't believe how much I've been supporting Collingwood this year (my least favourite team), hope Crisp and Grundy go big today and get my side into the top 1000 and keep me on top of my leagues. With the Lions win and hopefully a 2400+ score a good weekend for me.

    sc tragic · 08/07/2018 at 14:24

    I hope the Pies go really big for you too, mainly because I want them to beat the bombers.

sc tragic · 08/07/2018 at 14:34

Fantasia out for Jake Long, according to fanfooty.

BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 14:51

Anyone know why Paul Ahern is playing so little game time?

Seems to be scoring nicely, just being held back by his time on ground?

    Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 15:03

    was going to ask someone if they were watching the game. has he on the bench is he?

      BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 15:05

      He must of been, only played 58 TOG.

    Maverick_ · 08/07/2018 at 15:25

    Ahearn can really play cant he? he looks a real smooth mover down there.
    As a north supporter i'm happy with what i see.
    unsure whats up with his TOG though

Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 14:53

Pauli Ahern travelling along with a solid 1st half – 2 goals 7 kicks 4 handballs 3 marks 2 tackles. 50 odd points

    Ja191 · 08/07/2018 at 15:07

    north have got someone there, looks a hell of a player

      Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 15:09

      Yeh its really good to see as he has struggled to get going in the AFL with seriously dinky knees. Hope his knees hold up cos the boy can play

        Derek · 08/07/2018 at 15:56

        Less than 60% TOG

        Must being careful with him

          BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 15:57

          Did he have an ACL injury?

            Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 16:44

            2 knee recos

    NoLanguage · 09/07/2018 at 08:50

    Yeah lots of ability just cursed with two knees. If he has a clean run at it will be a real find for North

Maverick_ · 08/07/2018 at 15:31

curious to know how people rate north?
hard to gauge where they are at after being tipped bottom 2-3 and playing for a finals berth with some good football.
Look to have a good foundation of youth and solid spine.
How does there list compare against the sides like brisbane, carlton and st kilda who are all around the same mark?

    BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 15:43

    Miles ahead of Brisbane, Carlton and the Saints

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 15:44

    Brisbane are set with its young talent.
    North is Patch work still.
    StKilda need a rebuild. It's only been so long without the best team Captian Nroo and the experienced Montagna.
    Cartlon are soft and still have a list of players where 15/22 are not AFL level.

    Yeahnahyeah · 08/07/2018 at 15:55

    I think out of all those clubs you mentioned, Brisbane is closest to a flag/being a serious contender

ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 15:40

The bell tolls

Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 15:49

i was going to trade in Harbrow pre byes hes been scoring pretty tip top. would have been a good buy under $400k

    Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 17:12

    Now you wouldnt be trying to offend me would you?

Shake_n_Bake_ · 08/07/2018 at 15:58

Bringing in Goldy after his bye has been great 👍

    dontblushbaby · 08/07/2018 at 17:52

    Grundy 6 weeks ago was my best trade , and with C on him today is even better

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 08/07/2018 at 18:41

      Grundy all Australian ruckman!

ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 16:31

Yup you are whinging too so?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 16:34

    Us having discussions on a seperate site should not be brought up here by you. You are choosing to creat another scene "here"

zerowins · 08/07/2018 at 16:34

All this bickering between alleged men has ruined this site. People need to get a life toughen up a little bit and not take things so serious. Theres less arguments at my daughters kinder

Defying_Madness · 08/07/2018 at 16:43

Hurley, Merret, Smith, Grundy happy times

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 16:44

    Huge Sunday!

    Rabbits16 · 08/07/2018 at 16:51

    happy days! Hurley needs a decent game too, bit overdue. hasnt cracked the ton since Rd. 6!

Demons 5th for 2018 · 08/07/2018 at 16:47

Can someone please tell me how long is the interval at 1/4 time, 1/2 time and 3/4 time?
How many minutes from the siren in the first quarter to the bounce in the second quarter?
Cheers

    WoW_Trevor · 08/07/2018 at 17:39

    1/4 and 3/4 time are long enough to get a beer at MCG half-time is long enough to get a beer and a pie.
    If you're watching at home 1/4 and 3/4 you can have a wee and a smoke unless you've got a chubby prostate like me in which case you'll have to wait until half-time. The younguns should be able to get in a session of rumpy-pumpy including foreplay at half-time.

      Beezneez · 09/07/2018 at 13:10

      LOL

      theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 14:04

      😂😂

ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 17:05

Anyone pick up Pendles last round or this round?

    dognino · 08/07/2018 at 17:13

    Picked him up when Treloar went down for about 470k

    Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 17:23

    Had him a while, loving him today

    musicissport · 08/07/2018 at 17:51

    yep got him in this week for fyfe, one of my better moves this year lol

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 18:33

    Hey Dave, yeah brought him in this week for Fyfe, delivered nicely too :)..helped me towards a competitive score this week in my Leagues.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 18:38

      great pick up for that price

        Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 18:40

        Cheers bud, how's things going with your team this week?..gonna get a few wins?

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 20:34

          Put Mundy on field for Fyfe and had Mihocek cover the Simmo donut lol
          Ahern covered Heeney

          Got 2358 this week 2/4 League wins

            Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:39

            Not bad at all mate…I had to take Brodie's score too…very peaceful in here today isn't it?, it's like a huge veil of negativity has been lifted.

              ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 20:42

              agree mate 🙂
              I am holding onto my 4 trades still. They are vital for the last 2 rounds when some commen players will get a rest b4 their finals

                Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:44

                Yeah agree Dave, gotta have at least 2 in reserve for the finals or your whole year can go to hell.

                ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 20:46

                Glad I brought in Crisp for Shaw last week

                Shaw 40 & 71
                Crisp 92 & 95

                Extra 76 pts so far.

                  Cobee Bear · 08/07/2018 at 20:47

                  Great work!

      The Ranger · 08/07/2018 at 18:40

      Got you in the JR Faithful Russty and Pendles might just get you over the line.

        Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 18:48

        Hey Ranger, nah I reckon you've got me there mate..Kelly's getting a few touches now plus you have 2 others closing in on me haha
        Yep you got me…well done mate good win.

BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 17:09

Touch wood, Sunday this week is looking pretty good.

Defying_Madness · 08/07/2018 at 17:11

Kelly over Gaff isn't looking great early hopefully he can break the tag

BlueBaggerJosh · 08/07/2018 at 17:48

Out of Zorko and Billings, Pendlebury and Riewoldt and Heppell and Charlie Curnow i of course go with the worst possible combination

Lekdog · 08/07/2018 at 17:52

161 pre-scaling for Pendles!

    Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 17:57

    Shows how much Treloar was affecting his scoring.

    zerowins · 08/07/2018 at 18:09

    Got him for fyfe this week. Pretty happy with that

dontblushbaby · 08/07/2018 at 17:58

With my Rookies not generating a lot of cash this year forced me go look more for value with some of my upgrades ,eg Pendles ,A.Brayshaw .Chad & Rocky ,hope they keep up the good work

    Holty01 · 08/07/2018 at 18:06

    Fantastic pick ups mate

    dognino · 08/07/2018 at 19:12

    Good job, I looked for value too. I picked up Pendlebury under 500k, JPK around 440k , Gunston and de goey about the same . Has paid off so far and allowed me to keep some trades up my sleeve for finals.

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:17

      Nice work there mate…Pendles, deGoey and Gunston really delivered for you this week, JPK pretty serviceable too.

        dognino · 08/07/2018 at 19:24

        JPK was a big gamble, I picked him up averaging low 80’s. he’s averaged 112 since.
        Can’t win them all tho, I’ve picked some duds this year. Petracca, Hibberd, paid top dollar for danger and dusty. Traded Doedee and kelly out way too early.

          Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:27

          Sounds similar to what I've done this year, apart from Hibberd, but did choose Armitage and then swapped him for Ellis Yoelman who lost cash and plenty of points for me. It's how you end up that counts though.

Steeeve · 08/07/2018 at 18:12

This round is cooked so already looking ahead to the next.
What's a better option?

A. Rookie up to Lloyd in defence. Swinging Sicily forward will then mean I have a premo f7/m9 swing but no defence cover.

B. Two rookies both up to Roberton and a Buddy/Walters/Wingard type. This will give me premo coverage on every line except Ruck.

In other words would you rather have Lloyd in defence and no cover, or premo cover everywhere (plus the ability to loop scores)?

    Steeeve · 08/07/2018 at 18:12

    Ps currently have 7 trades

      Maverick_ · 08/07/2018 at 18:44

      LLoyd has sailed mate he was 560k he will be around 580k now for me that is too pricey.
      get in wingard he is cheap as chips and playing midfield. coverage is always handy as you've seen with treloar, fyfe and simpson this week!

        Derek · 08/07/2018 at 20:02

        McVeigh will miss many weeks. No Mills either. How will this affect Lloyd?

          Steeeve · 08/07/2018 at 22:56

          That's what I'm wondering. Ominus signs so far.

          Who is the best F7 out of Charlie Curnow, JJK or Fritsch?

            Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 23:11

            Reckon Fritsch is probably the most reliable out of those 3 Steeeve, seems to be improving his output too.

            theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 14:13

            Throw Charlie in a decent club he would be in everyone's SC team, unfortunately he's stuck in a dud team for now. I like JJK as F7 you know he has a huge ceiling.

            Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 16:51

            You’d need an F7 with high ceiling .. otherwise there’s no point.. Of those 3 JJK… if you want insurance, then Fritsch.

BlueBaggerJosh · 08/07/2018 at 18:49

Surely Whitfield gains defence status next year

zerowins · 08/07/2018 at 18:53

I dont go for either side so there goes that theory. And by going straight to name calling just shows your lack of intellectual capacity to have a mature conversation

    Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 18:57

    I didnt say you were a 1 eyed tool… but there is many of them. The AFL is slowly but surely becoming corrupt and there are many people figuring that out. Money hungry people at AFL house are too blame.

Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:11

Big congrats to Trigga and Shake n Bake for both going huge over 2500 this week, both had a major premo out too.
Ben- Browncows also over 2500…noice!

    Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 19:33

    Damn! Thats crazy

    The Ranger · 08/07/2018 at 19:45

    And Derek too

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:53

      Nice didn't see Derek's score but just did, nice one Derek!

      Derek · 08/07/2018 at 19:59

      Brought in Beams and Grundy this week, happy with that.

        Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:18

        Beautiful work Derek, who did you have the C on this week?

          Derek · 08/07/2018 at 23:33

          Maxy

    Browncow · 08/07/2018 at 21:54

    Thanks Rusty. Cazaly up 15 spots this week. Some pretty competitive scores being pumped out from 1-18.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 09/07/2018 at 12:33

    Cheers Russty, brought in Gaff & Dusty this week for Holman & Fyfe. 7 trades left so might look at a downgrade this week. Just need a bit of luck!

KSinny · 08/07/2018 at 19:14

Happy with just over 2300 after a doughnut from simmo this week as well as titch as C.

    Marty · 08/07/2018 at 19:19

    Same. No cover in the backline was a blow with Simpson out. 2313 is ok considering.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/07/2018 at 19:32

    I am in the same boat. Why did I go Titch as C over Gawn?? 2307 for me.

Maverick_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:16

shuey with back to back 100+ scores and under 400k. would be a handy m9. good on those who bought him in.

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:19

    Hey Mav, was tossing it up, but went Pendles and Westhoff instead, but he's a great pickup if low on cash…mega-bargain!

      Maverick_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:25

      good couple of trades there russty, well done mate! i went beams & kade simpson. only about 20 minutes before the news he was a late out too. very unfortunate! ha

        Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:31

        Simmo a real bummer for you but should be back fit next week hopefully for us..I had to take Mihocek's score for Simmo this week…not good but at least something…ended up with 2434 pretty happy with that. 🙂
        Beams was a ripper for ya this week mate!

dognino · 08/07/2018 at 19:17

My lowest scorer this round was titch with 79 who I put the C on , haha. Heeney and Simpson on the bench with rookies on field and I managed to knock out about a 2520. Guessing there will be some much larger scores this round for people who got full premium on field with a good C choice.

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:21

    That's a damn good result though Dognino…unlucky with the C choice but I was looking through my leagues before and not many went over 2500…well done.

    theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 12:49

    Excellent work.

BadgerHoney7 · 08/07/2018 at 19:19

2420 for me this week – fairly happy. Brought in Hurley and was looking all the goods until half time and slowed down – still scored 100 though. Also had to field Mihocek and Ahern due ton Heeney and Simmo so I'll take the score

Sam_01 · 08/07/2018 at 19:20

Assuming the 2300-2400 was around par this round?

    BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 19:35

    Probably, will depend on
    1. If you had Simpson
    2. If you had cover if you did have Simpson
    3. If you captained Titch

      Sam_01 · 08/07/2018 at 19:51

      Had Taylor come in from gws and drop a stanky cover score but I’ll take it haha managed 2373 with heeny and simmo on the pine

musicissport · 08/07/2018 at 19:24

Kane Lambert a fwd back up option? will be around $450K and has fwd/mid dpp.

    Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 19:28

    Not a bad pick. Be ready for inconsistent scores though.

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:33

    Maybe de Goey also mate…played really well today.

AuroraBorealis?! · 08/07/2018 at 19:39

2,228 for me this week with 2 donuts, could be much better but could be worse i guess. How did everyone else do?

    Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 19:46

    2323 with a 0. Below par for the week i think.

    Ja191 · 08/07/2018 at 19:49

    2544 not bad after last week

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 19:51

      That's a killer score this week JA…..should prop you up the rankings this week for sure.

        Ja191 · 08/07/2018 at 19:59

        haha hopefully, how'd you go russty?

          Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:13

          2434 mate..congrats on your mammoth score this week.

            Ja191 · 08/07/2018 at 20:34

            Not too bad yourself! Great score, will enjoy a big climb!!

    The Ranger · 08/07/2018 at 19:51

    2457

    hedski · 08/07/2018 at 19:52

    2370 AB, was happy with Logan (88) and Ahern (80) covering Simmo and Heeney but I had a few passengers, Menagola (71), Savage (77) and Ryan (68) being the worst, most people had Titch so I won't complain about him.
    That's not a bad score munching on 2 donuts mate.

    Jace · 08/07/2018 at 20:02

    2445 this week with a donut,
    I should take a donut every week.
    My 2 biggest scores this year have been with a donut 2445 & 2549.

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:14

      Maybe factor in a donut every week for next year mate?…hahah

    JohnDJ59 · 08/07/2018 at 21:40

    2,337 with the Simpson donut, won 6/10 league games, not that it matters that much, stuck in the 30k rankings and will only be playing in two league top 8 finals.

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 21:50

      Good score this week John, being in 2 league finals is ok mate, at least you're still in with a shot, it's all about the process, and enjoyment of it, it's not all results or rank based like some people believe.
      Hope you do well in your finals mate.

    Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 21:55

    2324 happy with the score but my rival got 2500 this week and he now has a 567 point lead over me. i still think i can overcome the lead with 6 extra trades but its a very small chance

    One Touch Wonder · 08/07/2018 at 23:42

    The SHARK MOVES are starting to pay off. 2539 this week.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 09/07/2018 at 14:33

    2324 for me, captain Titch kept my score down and with Simpson out I had Mihocek as cover with a 46. Ahern was good cover for Heeney though!

    Maverick_ · 09/07/2018 at 14:44

    2404. heeney & simpson on the pine.

    Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 16:47

    A pathetic 2287 given the scores on here @ 150+ more than me with freakin donuts…
    Only had Simmo on the pine.. and a heap of spuds – Franklin, Guelfi (for Simmo), Bont, Ryan, including the under achievers Mitchell, Maclean, Kelly and Laird.. 🤔
    Might register for VFL SC!!

Daniel · 08/07/2018 at 19:47

Scored a 2583 even with heeney and simpson on the bench and my worst 2 players being shaw and mitchell. Stoked I brought in pendles for fyfe this week.

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:29

    That's huge Daniel, well done mate, great score and should see you move significantly up the rankings.

    Browncow · 08/07/2018 at 21:58

    Well played Daniel – huge score. Think you might have taken me out in Community Crew. Thought I was safe but Pendles, Oliver ……the list goes on.

      Daniel · 09/07/2018 at 14:24

      Yes mate, that was me in the community league, unlucky for you to lose this week, hopefully you can bounce back next week 🙂

Hawks · 08/07/2018 at 19:56

2485 this week with Heeney, Simpson & Fyfe on the bench

    theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 12:48

    Awesome score considering. Well done.

      BVB21 · 09/07/2018 at 17:23

      Very nice!

Neil demons delight · 08/07/2018 at 19:56

Shake was massive again as was Russty ,both got me well and truly congrats fellas. Hop over to FSC Russty maybe you may want to contribute an article All welcome.

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:19

    Will do Neil, time is the enemy at the moment but will be for sure in the future…cheers mate, good game, I was lucky I brought in Pendles this week and C'd Grundy.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:20

    Hope l haven’t left my run to late in some leagues Neil 2530 wasnt bad this week. Brought in Gaff for Holman that worked well. Bench is not bad with Doedee Austin def ahern giro Spargo mids Boak battle fwd.

Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 20:03

Someone scored 2711 with simmo and Fyfe on the bench 😮

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 20:08

    thats insane
    Bet there is Beams, Lloyd and Doedee in the mix for that score

      Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 20:19

      doesnt have doedee surprisingly

    BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 20:16

    Team name?

      Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 20:20

      mightydees if you go the phantom supercoach facebook page you can see it in the comments

        BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 20:39

        Holy crap

        Neil demons delight · 08/07/2018 at 20:46

        GREAT NAME mighty dees

    Blueth · 08/07/2018 at 23:18

    He has Mason Cox and Rhys Stanley!!!!

Mystic_Mac · 08/07/2018 at 20:23

Good game sixty6. I guess the better team won today. After an average start to the year, a league win over a supercoach god like yourself is satisfying. It’s red pantie night 😎

Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 20:50

Hi Mac, not surprised you beat him today, some of the choices he's made lately have been a bit dodgy…and also advising people against trading Beams and Pendlebury in…well, that's just incorrect, if you think you can predict the future, you're just gonna be wrong I'm afraid.
Gotta trust your own gut and research and not listen to people who claim to know what they're talking about.
Well done this week mate.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 08/07/2018 at 20:58

    20 premo's at this stage of the year will do that
    Should have 22-23 minimum by now

    Mystic_Mac · 08/07/2018 at 20:58

    Cheers Russty

BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 20:54

Weekly winner did it with Mason cox and Rhys Stanley in his team!

Scored 2711

Simpson and Fyfe on the pine

Wow

    Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 20:57

    Wow he's gonna enjoy his $1000

      BrownlowBoy · 08/07/2018 at 20:59

      He has no rookies on field which makes it even more impressive he has Simmo and Fyfe riding the pine.

      Mid pricers like Brayshaw, Cutler, Wingard, Petracca, Rocky, Taranto, Witherden who all scored 105 or more help

Big fact hunt · 08/07/2018 at 21:08

Hi guys. Is anyone able to tell me how I find out my team value. Cheers

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 21:11

    Should be on there on your team page BFH.

    Lazza · 08/07/2018 at 22:27

    Go to your ‘Home’ page and select ‘History’.

      Big fact hunt · 09/07/2018 at 06:42

      Thanks guys

John · 08/07/2018 at 21:40

Hey community,
Absolute abysmal week for me.
Last and final upgrade, sadly had 480k to spend on a defender.
Already have Simmo, Laird, Sicily, Howe, Savage, J.Smith (Redman, Random)
Does the community think that Tom McDonald is the best option at 480k? or perhaps Hurley/Brayshaw.
Thanks

    Lazza · 08/07/2018 at 22:24

    Either of McDonald or Brayshaw.. probably depends on your DPP options .. do you have Sicily up fwd? Then Tom, else Angus.
    Angus cheaper, Tom higher ceiling.. both have a similar tons-per-game ratio.

    I have Tom up fwd, and looking to add Angus for his DPP.

    Marcus · 08/07/2018 at 22:40

    Webster another option
    Was averaging 103 before that injury affected score. Could be worth waiting another week on him first though

    JohnDJ59 · 08/07/2018 at 22:55

    Brayshaw.

Ahmad rubas · 08/07/2018 at 21:53

which rookie is a better trade in option narkle or powel?

Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 22:38

Should i consider trading McGovern?
Is playing fwd atm so his output is dropping.
Would leave me with 3 trades left.

    TBone_9 · 08/07/2018 at 22:57

    Hey Crow, how much would you be able to spend on a McGovern upgrade? How does the rest of your team look? Cheers

      Crow94 · 08/07/2018 at 23:48

      I would be able to get any DEF i dont have.

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

      Dangerfield, Mitchell, Kelly, Cripps, Merrett Crouch , Oliver, Kennedy (Ahern, Phillips, Giro)

      Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

      Heeney, McLean, Westhoff, Gunston, Boak, Fritsch (Battle, Keefe)

      193.4k in bank

        TBone_9 · 09/07/2018 at 00:03

        Hmm would be very tempted to trade him, would rather use the trade on something like Nank to Grundy as I think it’ll average more points per week for you… but hard to look past a trade of McGovern straight to Lloyd. If you’re looking for someone who’s not gonna blow your whole budget, Hurn is looking the goods for his price right now

          Crow94 · 09/07/2018 at 00:10

          Yeah i was going to trade nank. But he has played very well over the past couple of weeks. Getting more hitouts, tackles and touches so i may hold him for a bit. McGovern wont go back to his intercepting ways until Darling and Kennedy are back

            Russty_ · 10/07/2018 at 01:41

            Hey Crow, I read Darling and JJK are a chance to be back this Sunday against Collingwood..big game!

    Finnius · 08/07/2018 at 23:57

    mcgovern to lloyd sounds pretty good. I have 4 trades left as well but would defs like a few more.

      Crow94 · 09/07/2018 at 00:11

      Agreed. More trades would be nice, but injuries/ bust players hurt early on and over the past couple of weeks

    pigjumpprusik · 09/07/2018 at 01:20

    Save the trade and hold, just pray and hope Darling and Kennedy return soon.

    DavidC · 09/07/2018 at 08:46

    The forwards might be back next week leaving McGovern to return to the backline. I'd hold him for now.

      r_calve · 09/07/2018 at 14:32

      darling and Kennedy back next week so he should be alright

ryan3315 · 08/07/2018 at 22:56

Crisp, McDonald or Brayshaw as final back spot?

    DavidC · 09/07/2018 at 08:44

    Brayshaw.

    Nadonis99 · 09/07/2018 at 12:41

    I like Crisp very consistent over the last 6 or so weeks!

    With his ceiling though, McDonald with a BE of 158 could be worth it if you can wait a week?

    theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 14:08

    Brayshaw if you can loop DPP. He's starting to show how good he really is.

TBone_9 · 08/07/2018 at 23:02

Hey guys, got 2363 this week even with a donut from Simmo being a late out. Felt exposed having no backup on the def bench with Heron not playing and Redman out for up to another month. Is it worth a trade to go Heron to Lynch (123k)? Or just use remaining 7 trades for injuries or underperforming premos? (ie. Dusty)
Cheers guys 🙂

    Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 23:21

    Hey TBone, I think with 7 left you could get Lynch in, great average for a rookie and it's nice to have some backup, just maybe research how secure his job is first, cheers mate.

      TBone_9 · 08/07/2018 at 23:57

      Cheers Russty! I’ll be for sure looking into it this week. If he seems to have the JS then the trade would provide much better piece of mind. How’d you do this week mate?

Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 23:17

Stick with Luke Ryan or turf him now that he seems to be losing form, and money?

    Willymack1234 · 08/07/2018 at 23:34

    In the same boat, I recon keep him as he's got 5 of his last 7 at home, should find form then

      Russty_ · 08/07/2018 at 23:53

      Cheers Willy, only have 5 left so yeah probably good advice mate thanks.

    Beezneez · 09/07/2018 at 10:58

    Was thinking of trading him to Lloyd but Willymac's comments are worth noting. Also someone commented earlier that McVeigh out may affect his output. Will have another look and may revert to my original plan of Guelfi to Webster and swing McDonald forward to complete my team. Hopefully Webster does well this week cos he should be about $370k in round 18.

    Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 13:29

    Was thinking about this too Russty.. I’m thinking same as Willy.. will probably bring Bradshaw in and loophole the two.. only problem is that Simmo and Fyfe cost me two unplanned trades this week which stuffs up my plans..

    theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 14:03

    All Freo players can be tagged with losing form and cash atm. Hold him he'll bounce back when it counts.

murray · 09/07/2018 at 08:44

Have 4 trades left and not wanting to use any more before the finals, BUT, is Guelfi to Shuey a good trade, Would bring me to full premo (if you can call Shuey a premo??) and 3 trades for the finals. Worth the trade??

    theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 12:43

    Shuey is a bargain atm and can't see any reason not to get him in (how many trades left is the exception). The key to Eagles midfield playing good footy is Nic Nat as demonstrated in yesterday's win over GWS. What a star!!

      murray · 09/07/2018 at 13:10

      thanks RP, when the eagles are going well and in particular Nic Nat going well, Shuey and Gaff(have Gaff), both score well, I think Shuey is over his injuries and i think his scoring potential for his price is too enticing

        theRealPod · 09/07/2018 at 14:01

        I'm seriously considering Shuey for a M9 loop off his recent performances. Good luck whatever you decide to do, cheers.

Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 11:47

Hi all,

Any advice on my team and intended trades is appreciated:

DEF: Yeo, Sicily, Laird, T Mac, Hurley, Crisp (Austin, Ridley)

MID: Titch, Oliver, Kelly, Bontempelli, Crouch, Cogs, Cripps, Ahern (Fyfe, Giro, Spargo)

RCK: Gawn, Goldy (Crossley)

FWD: Heeney, Franklin, D Smith, Gray, Caddy, Guelfi (Battle, Brander)

5 trades and 58K.

I'm thinking of trading Fyfe > Wingard or Dusty and then Guelfi > De Goey/McLean. This will leave me full premo and hopefully enough coverage with Brander DPP to TMAC/Sicily and a fair few MID/FWD swingman

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 09/07/2018 at 12:05

    Wingard and McLean

      Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 12:08

      Thanks Calint – McLean's 5 round average worries me a little though!

        Derek · 09/07/2018 at 14:34

        He got a smack in the head a few weeks ago that affected his average. I think he goes better with McCrae in team

          Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 15:00

          Cheers, given my low trades I might just do one per week instead

            Derek · 09/07/2018 at 16:53

            do them both, depends on how far Fyfe is away

              Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 19:12

              Will do. I can never resist making two trades, just enjoy the idea of being patient for once

Dale · 09/07/2018 at 15:13

would like peoples feedback on my team and trade suggestions..

DEF: Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Hurley, Webster, Hibberd (Naughton Taylor)

MID: Danger, Mitchell, Oliver, Beams, Cognilio, Rocky, E.Curnow, Martin (holman Ahearn E.Phillips)

RUCK: Gawn NicNat (Olango)

FWD: Heeney, westhoff, gray, D.Smith, Sicily, McLean (T.Smith Battle)

7 trades remain & 78k.
1. Nicnat to goldy/grundy is a must in the next week or two.
2. Holman to maybe sier, narkle or powell
3. Hibberd to maybe wingard via sicily DPP

feel free to disect my team always love an opinion from others

    Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 15:36

    Nice team, maybe Holman > Sier and Hibberd > Lloyd if you can afford?

      Dale · 09/07/2018 at 15:52

      I thought about LLoyd but his 590k.
      getting him means i'd be left with not alot of $$$.

      i still hope to grab grundy/goldy for nicnat soon

        Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 16:10

        Any particular reason for the rush on Nic Nat (injury prone I understand)? But it looked like he was building some serious form on the weekend. Maybe Naughton > Lynch and then bring in L Ryan or Witherden. That should leave you roughly 100k to splash on Goldy, but might not get you to Grundy

          Dale · 09/07/2018 at 16:53

          just rumours nic nat is sore cobee. they have been naming lycett, nicnat & vardy…
          they're almost expecting him to be a late out or brreakdown midgame. i cant afford a late out is all with no cover.
          He has been building up since round 1. past 4 week scores, one 100+, one 90+ and two in the 80s..
          + gawn grundy & goldy are the premier ruckman i feel and will come home strong.

            Cobee Bear · 09/07/2018 at 19:13

            That's more than fair enough. Good luck and hope you don't have injuries

BeenHereBefore · 09/07/2018 at 15:20

Should I go parker to oliver?

Would have to downgrade holman to sier.

This would leave me with 2 trades for the season – just fed up with parkers inconsistant scores.

    Dale · 09/07/2018 at 15:23

    What is your midfield currently? consider M.Crouch if you don't have him

Jim_bob321 · 09/07/2018 at 17:04

Hey community,
Need a bit of help with my team this week
Currently have 4 trades and 140k in the bank. Team consists of:
DEF: Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Howe, Savage, J. Smith (Redman, Langlands)
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Gaff, Bont, Danger, E. Curnow, Coniglio, Duncan (Ahern, Giro, Brown)
RCK: Gawn, Martin
FWD: Westhoff, Gray, M.Robinson, D.Smith, Franklin, McLean (T.Smith, Battle)
Thinking of going Ahern and T.Smith, via DPP to Brayshaw and Brad Lynch – tossing up between T.Mac and Brayshaw
Would absolutely love the community's advice. Feel free to disect the team

    Maverick_ · 09/07/2018 at 17:46

    definately do not trade ahern jim his avg is great BE -10 and has dpp…
    I'd be going Brown if that is C.Brown! down to sier & J.Smith up to brayshaw, crisp, hurley or lloyd if your $$ strecthes that far.
    all viable options!

    after that your starting 22 looks real solid mate!

      Jim_bob321 · 09/07/2018 at 18:29

      Its J Brown… 102k frog

        Maverick_ · 09/07/2018 at 20:10

        yeah your in some strife then. i like dereks option 2 below. uses two trades which isn't great but it gets you brayshaw who i rate over mcgrath.

    Derek · 09/07/2018 at 19:18

    4 trades is not many. but you do still have a rookie on field in defense that needs to be fixed.

    Ahern needs to stay to give you some cover in mid/fwd.

    option 1. Giro to McGrath (via Langlands DPP)

    Only needs one trade (just have enough cash). Gives you Smith as defence cover and a Def/Mid swing set with langlands. McGrath is getting more midfield time (mainly wing) and should get close to an 80 average rest of year. should improve on that. But it uses just One trade

    option 2. Giro to Lynch and J Smith to Brayshaw. (just enough cash) Still gives you a Def/Mid swing and decent cover if Lynch gets games. but uses 2 trades.

    Gday Jim_bob, mate honestly with 4 trades left I’d be holding and not using trades unless I got a long term injury. If you reach finals with all in tact look to upgrade J. Smith to a premo. But your team looks solid to hold for now mate

G'day JR community, would appreciate some help with my team this week.

I have 4 trades and 56k in the bank at minute and the team looks like

Def: Simmo, Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Howe, Hurley (Redman, Ridley)
Mid: Titch, Cripps, Danger, Oliver, J Selwood, Neale, Cogs, Dusty (Ahern, Spargo, Giro)
Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Olango)
Forward: Gray, Heeney, McLean, Buddy, Walters, D Smith (Guelfi, T Smith)

So I'm more or less at full premo and I'm 4895 in the rankings (I'd like to be higher but I'm pretty happy given its my third season and first where I've used a proper guns & rookies approach). Is it worth going Guelfi and spargo to a 102k rookie and Menegola/De Goey/Wingard ? Between one of those three and Ahern I feel I have lots of great cover across two lines but my back line is exposed without cover and I copped a donut last week. One of those three would be pretty handy to loop with Buddy given his recent form. What are your thoughts?

    Derek · 09/07/2018 at 18:54

    only 4 trades left, i'd be holding on to them. Ridley is a good chance to play soon, Lynch is an option at $123k.

      PizzaSafety · 09/07/2018 at 18:58

      Cheers Derek, it's more of a go for broke move to be honest because I think Menegola would be great to loophole because of his ceiling but I do realise it's not the safest move

Oliver · 09/07/2018 at 18:03

Anyone know the current formula or have an excel sheet to calculate breakevens? I'm hoping to bring in Webster next week as my d6/d7 if he drops down to 380k, was wondering what score he would need to drop to get down to that price?

    Marcus · 09/07/2018 at 18:06

    His projected score of 66 will give him a price of practically bang on 380k

    Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 18:37

    So if he tons up, it will be north of $395k

Unknown · 09/07/2018 at 18:26

DEF: Simmo, Laird, Yeo, Sicily, mcdonald, ryan ( c'0 shea, mihcoeck)

Mid: titch, cripps, danger, gaff, merrett, martin , crouch, cogs ( brodie, barry, connor)

Ruck: nic nat, gawn ( cameron)

Fwd: heeney, gunston, smith, mclean, ryan, ahen ( smith, keefe)

123k in the bank and 6 trades
feedback would really help

Derek · 09/07/2018 at 19:37

just looking at the team value of the fellas in the top 100. around $13.5mil average (even a few pushing $14m)

as you roll down the list into the 1000 the team values average around $13mil.

by the time you get to 5k and beyond, we are nearly $1million off the pace.

I'm still not sure if high value team is a result of great scoring team or is a great scoring team the result of a high value team?

This year i was more aggressive with my rookie trading than ever. didn't milk the last drop like i have in past years, but i'm still $1million behind the very pointy end. should i blame Danger? yeah i think i should. danger and all his high priced "pay the price" friends!! My second strategy this year was to get to full premium midfield by round 7, i then watched the value fall, and fall and other people buying my high priced premiums for discount prices. this is what the prima-donna forwards were suppose to do like they do every year.

    hedski · 09/07/2018 at 22:40

    I'm at $13.3Mil with $55k in the bank Derek but ranked a lowly 12k.
    I guess it comes down to when you acquired your premos and your bench worth?

      Derek · 10/07/2018 at 22:23

      That surprises me a bit. Your a good player, and with high value thought you might be higher, or have you just recently slipped rank over the byes?

        hedski · 11/07/2018 at 07:59

        Had a shocking start Derek, Kreuzer Crouch Kelly and Greene all went down in the first few weeks, add some bad on field rookie choices and I was out to around 62k rank by round 4-5, been pushing shit uphill ever since playing catch up. Fairly happy with the squad I have now but I've burned through my trades.

    BrownlowBoy · 10/07/2018 at 11:58

    $12.8mil and roughly 10k rank for me

    Mark Fawcett · 10/07/2018 at 20:59

    ranked 103 and team value of 13.56 million. I guess that lends some weight to what you're saying:)

      Derek · 10/07/2018 at 22:21

      Good rank.

      But is your rank high because of your team value, or is your team value height as a consequence of your rank?

Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 20:11

I’ve pushed the home and refresh buttons 20+ times, seems we are still in the panic room…

    Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 23:37

    Podcast is up .. hooray !!

Johnny · 09/07/2018 at 20:48

    Blueth · 10/07/2018 at 10:55
