Lekdog has taken some loopy pills. This is a terrible episode with terrible advice, made by terrible people for terr… you wonderful, beautiful people. Who are not in any way terrible at all xoxo <3

Anyway, Lekdog has gone crazy and Patch has relented and indulged in his craziness.

Here is a short list of players discussed:

  • Daniel Rich
  • Jack Billings
  • Chad Wingard
  • Charlie Dixon
  • Daisy Thomas
  • Rory BLOODY Thompson (yes, the one from Gold Coast)

We’ve gone insane. Indulge us. Join us. Become on of us… one of us… ONE OF US.

I bear no responsibility for anyone who takes any of Lek's suggestions in this week's pod.

Also: the Rory Thompson cheap 200k key defender idea – DISCUSS. Is he mad?

    Lekdog · 09/07/2018 at 23:15

    It’s madness but it might get the job done if you have no cash, limited trades and need a consistent warm body

    PizzaSafety · 09/07/2018 at 23:50

    Probably just better to hope your rookie bench option gets back in the team than to waste a trade on a player. Still well done for thinking outside the box Lek.

TIGESB2B · 09/07/2018 at 23:08

Had Dixon all year; finally coming good. Of course I could buy him now for a lot less. Had to bring in Lynch to cover Simmo, based on his 1st game. Happy to have gone early, looks a real find for the Doggies from rookie draft.

    Lekdog · 09/07/2018 at 23:15

    Dixon is playing very well for a man who died in 2015, very well!

Lazza · 09/07/2018 at 23:34

Geez Lek, given that list you’ve put me off, I might pass, couldn’t you have just lied and listed
Angus Brayshaw
Luke Shuey
Chad Wingard
Scott Pendlebury
Luke Breust

Ok, ok you have Chad … I’ll have to listen now…

chadly · 09/07/2018 at 23:57

Sicily (B)
Brayshaw (M)
Heeney (F)

Can I switch Sicily (F), Brayshaw (B) and Heeney (M)
OR I am I only able to do this (substitute) during a trade?

    Joe T · 10/07/2018 at 00:24

    Can only do that during a trade chadly. On field substitutes can only swap directly with a player with the same DPP e.g. Sicily in def with Keefee in fwd

    DavidC · 10/07/2018 at 15:29

    Try this.

    Trade out any mid "X", switch your 3 players around then trade in any mid "Y".
    Now trade out "Y" and trade back in "X". See if you get your 2 trades back.

    Just reverse trades if it doesn't work, but I think it will.

Samantha · 10/07/2018 at 00:08

I currently have $123,200 and 8 trades left.

Backs: J Lloyd, K Simpson, E Yeo, J Sicily, R Laird, S Savage (L Austin, B Mihocek)

Mids: T Mitchell, P Cripps, A Gaff, P Dangerfield, J Selwood, C Oliver, S Coniglio, J O'Meara (P Ahern, E Phillips, J Smith)

Rucks: M Gawn, T Goldstein (O McInerney)

Fwds: J Westoff, I Heeney, R Gray, D Smith, L Franklin, T McLean (M Guelfi, T Smith)

I'm trying to figure out what I should spend my cash and trades on. Any Recommendations on the following:

Upgrade J O'Meara to J Kelly OR M Duncan

OR

Rage trade L Franklin to C Wingard

OR

Upgrade S Savage to S Hurn OR J Crisp

OR

Save the trades

I'm currently thinking the safest move is to trade J O'Meara to M Duncan. He's consistent, historically his body's been good, in only 2.1% of teams, and is playing for a team who's pushing for finals, possibly top 4. Thoughts?

    DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 10/07/2018 at 01:01

    M.Guelfi has to go (BE 83) Ahern to FWD bench
    B.Lynch is a good bubble boy (DEF) so you may want to trade Savage.
    Bring in Lynch and gun MID of your choice (733k) with money left over for next week to trade L.Austin to premo DEF.
    Austin has money to make this week so trade him next week.

    Gary Swine · 10/07/2018 at 02:39

    8 trades are plenty so use them and yes Guelfi will be bleeding even more cash (I traded him last week) so its time for him to go.

      Samantha · 10/07/2018 at 03:02

      I'm not too worried about Guelfi losing cash. I've done most of my upgrades at this point and am happy to have a cover player whose position seems safe. I guess I could bring in Wil Powell as a swing option but I'm not really sure what I'd do with the extra cash anyway. Maybe a midfield loophole option?

    The Ranger · 10/07/2018 at 07:51

    With 8 trades you can afford to do 2 Sam so I'd punt O'Meara and Guelfi.

    Nick · 10/07/2018 at 15:28

    You could downgrade Guelfi to the cheapest fwd/def rookie. Puts another 175k in the bank and allows you to swing Sicily into the forward line for premo fwd cover if required. Im not 100% on TMcdonald but he has pumped out some quality scores so you could upgrade TSmith to him next week as he will drop to 470k after this week. That leaves you with about 50k in the bank and 6 trades. Also gives you a backup premo that can be swung between fwd and def. Next task is to get in MacRae once he is fit and played his two games and should be just under 600k. Downgrade Mihocek to Lynch and of Lynch can hold a spot and score half decent he’s an extra cover in Def and allows you to downgrade Austin which will in turn give you enough money to upgrade either Philips or ESmith to MacRae. That hurt my brain but good luck with it

Gary Swine · 10/07/2018 at 02:31

4 TRADES & 239K IN THE BANK.

R.Laird, J.Lloyd, K.Simpson, J.Sicily, E.Yeo, M.Hurley. (B.Lynch & T.Duman)
================================================================
R.Gray, J.Westoff, I.Heeney, L.Franklin, S.Menegola, J.Hogan. (T.Smith & J.Battle)
================================================================
M.Gawn, N.Naitanui. (T.Olango)
================================================================
T.Mitchell, P.Dangerfield, S.Coniglio, E.Curnow, P.Cripps, Z.Merrett, M.Bontempelli, T.McLean. (P.Ahern & C.Spargo & E.Phillips)
================================================================

Should I trade T.Smith (224k) BE of 43 this week? It would give me 463k for an upgrade or hold? Smith and Battle leave my forward line a bit stuck. The under 463k guys available aren't real premos, who is the best available?
Will T.Smith get a game anytime soon?
Thanks

    Samantha · 10/07/2018 at 03:34

    If you want forward cover then I'd recommend moving P Ahern forward when you trade out T Smith, then instead of bringing in a 463K forward bring in Dusty Martin as a loophole option in the midfield. Such a move would also allow you to move T McLean forward if one of your main 6 forwards looks like missing a week.

fcabel · 10/07/2018 at 05:50

Set the chads alight

Adam · 10/07/2018 at 06:42

Mmm Heath Shaw u must go
Who to replace him with
Stewart. Crisp. Yeo
Do I go Yeo or a POD

    Holty01 · 10/07/2018 at 09:52

    Yeo. I think a POD is only relevant if you think they can outscore or at least keep pace. Unless Yeo has a role change or a injury, he should score more by seasons end
    Are you going for rank or league? And how many trades u have left?
    I ask as i have Shaw and will either offload him come finals or keep him as a D7.

      Adam · 10/07/2018 at 12:09

      League Win, thatl leave me 6 trades
      And about 20k

        Holty01 · 10/07/2018 at 12:40

        Nice that you still have thise trades up your sleeves. You may even try getting a bubble boy as well if you have someone who has appreciated in value enough. Having 5 trades left and money in the bank would be very handy with how this season has gone.
        Assume you are full premo if you are making this trade?

          Adam · 10/07/2018 at 20:08

          Yeah mate I’m full, I traded in Sier to my kids too so still leaves with 6

Mmmbutch · 10/07/2018 at 08:30

All my plans fell apart post byes. Left with these options. Don’t really wanna burn two trades downgrading an Austin or Ahern, plus I like the coverage. Only have $10k in the bank and 4 trades left

Option 1 – Keep Fritsch at F6
Option 2 – Fritsch to Hogan
Option 3 – Fritsch to Dixon
Option 4 – Fritsch to Webster (moving Sicily forward)

Open to other options but only have $430k to play with. Rest in f team is full premo (and Dusty)

    Holty01 · 10/07/2018 at 09:58

    Id hold mate with only 4 trades left. Fritsch has a 5 round average of 91 which is very good. If he maintains that average, he may well outscore the 3 you have mentioned. Id be holding thise trades for injuries or when finals come

    jez_m · 10/07/2018 at 10:11

    I'd hold mate. Long way to go yet and Fritsch is doing well.

Jim_bob321 · 10/07/2018 at 08:38

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
Disclaimer – I know ive already posted this but just want some external advice

    Ricardo · 10/07/2018 at 12:30

    Keep your trades

    The Ranger · 10/07/2018 at 13:00

    Unless you're going for rank you gotta hold I think Jim.
    Save those trades for finals

Johnny · 10/07/2018 at 08:41

Great work fellas!! Whose the must have B.lynch or sier??
Naughton->Lynch
Or
Holman -> sier

    jez_m · 10/07/2018 at 10:11

    Sier's job security is stronger than Lynch's I reckon, so I'd be picking him up first.

    The Ranger · 10/07/2018 at 12:19

    Not sure about Siers JS, the Pies have Varcoe, Moore and J.Thomas available this week and Elliot, Fasolo, Aish and Blair all due back soon. He might play a couple more weeks but I don't think he'll play out the season.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 10/07/2018 at 16:56

      Blair wont be back in

Sc_Wow · 10/07/2018 at 08:42

      Sc_Wow · 10/07/2018 at 10:47

      Cheers

        Rick Grimes · 11/07/2018 at 21:03

        Probably for being a bit of a jerk.

Steeeve · 10/07/2018 at 09:08

Any chance bailey rice earns another game? Might upgrade him to Webster next week after eating the Simmo donut last weekend.

jez_m · 10/07/2018 at 09:54

Thinking of bringing in Luke Shuey for Giro as an M9 loophole option. Would leave me with 3 trades left for the year for injuries with decent cover (Ahern, Sier, Mihocek & J. Smith) on other lines. Thoughts community?

NeedHelp · 10/07/2018 at 10:04

8 trades left, 50k in the kitty. I need your help!!

Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Hurn, Shaw [Smith, Ridley]

Mitchell, Cripps, Kelly, Dangerfield, Oliver, Coniglio, Martin, Walters [Ahern, Giro, Barry]

Gawn, Martin [Olango]

Sicily, Westhoff, Heeney, Smith, Mclean, Guelfi [Ryan, Smith]

I need to get Guelfi off the field, hes absolutely bleeding points for me right now. What can I do?

    INPieman · 10/07/2018 at 10:32

    I'd consider trading Ryan to a non playing DPP that you can swing with Ahern for cover. Then trade Guelfi, sub Walters to your forward line & grab Rocky. He's still cheap

      NeedHelp · 10/07/2018 at 10:36

      Nice suggestion mate, the plan was always to sub walters forward!

      The only problem I expected rookies to be performing a bit more so I could do my final upgrade in midfield. What about playing ahern as m8 for a few weeks?

        INPieman · 10/07/2018 at 10:54

        Could do worse than playing Ahern. But I'd prefer someone with a high ceiling. Can't see Ahern going much better than an 80

    Holty01 · 10/07/2018 at 12:01

    I like piemans suggestion. You might even want Shuey instead of Rocky. Both still cheap

Doc · 10/07/2018 at 10:11

Any love for the Port Trengove at $160k? Back to back 77's could be a half decent bench option in the midfield.

    Lekdog · 10/07/2018 at 10:20

    Yep, mentioned in the pod (I think) I like hime, playing a role and assuming healthy should hold his spot

      Doc · 10/07/2018 at 12:00

      Ahh sorry, commented before I listened

Neil demons delight · 10/07/2018 at 10:28

Crazy man .The place is much better now without the ranting .

Stacky23 · 10/07/2018 at 10:44

have 5 trades and 170k in the bank
Lloyd, Simpson, Laird, Yeo, Crisp, Savage (Austin, Murphy)
Titch, Cripps, Kelly, Danger, Higgins, Parker, Martin, Rocky (ahern, giro, mutch)
Sicily, Mclean, Heeney, Walters, Smith, De goey (Fritsch, Dixon)
Few questions 1.) do i keep austin as bench cover or bring in a looping premo with savage such as luke ryan at a discounted price
2.) who should i look at as my final premo in the midfield and how long should i wait to make this trade (macrae coming back possibly this week with a 230be)
3.) should i keep fritsch as my looping fwd with de goey or look to bring in a proven scorer

    Dry · 10/07/2018 at 20:08

    I presume your going for overall rank.
    1) I'd be getting rid of Savage, he is going to finish somewhere between 10 – 20 th ranked defender, Ryan same boat. You are costing yourself 5-10 points a week by not upgrading. Take your pick of any higher ranked defenders you don't have, or wait a week for Websters price to drop more (would be averaging 100 if you take out the 13 when he got injured) or Swing Sicily and look at forwards.
    2) upgrade asap, maybe Shuey for loophole reasons.
    3) meh

Trades · 10/07/2018 at 11:15

Parker or Martin to Oliver?

Worth going Ridley to Lynch (Mihocek is other def rookie)?

Shaw to Sicily or McDonald

    jez_m · 10/07/2018 at 11:26

    Depends – how many trades do you have left?

    Parker is averaging the same as Martin for what it's worth, so I wouldn't be sideways trading.

Jim_bob321 · 10/07/2018 at 11:17

Any like Johannisen???

    jez_m · 10/07/2018 at 11:28

    Would only bring him in if he was going to be your D7 loophole. Hasn't scored well enough to be on field. Only two tons so far this year.

    Randomcliche2 · 12/07/2018 at 11:13

    Yes. Started him. Has had his unforseen forward experiment and is back scoring well. Strongly consider.

Derek · 10/07/2018 at 11:17

Great pod. Any Pod that mentions Zac Dawson’s name is gold.

Swoopster · 10/07/2018 at 11:26

Will B. Lynch keep his spot for rest of the year for DEF cover?
Thinking of going early on downgrading L. Austin to get L. Shuey in, who will become a luxury upgrade to an Uber premium in the finals (Macrae if back and firing / Gaff)

Jimmy · 10/07/2018 at 11:31

I have $116k and 8 trades left. I’m thinking Bonner to Lynch to build to build up more cash and play Austin for now as my 6th defender. Or Bonner to Webster next week? First option I’ll have to use more trades as Austin will have to be upgraded but I can get the likes of Yeo or Lloyd. Second option, I get Webster as my 6th defender, dirt cheap price and have 7 trades. Community what do you think is best option?

PIES CAKEWALK 4 FLAG · 10/07/2018 at 13:26

Bonner to Lynch – tick
Next week Austin out – tick

No use messing around with FAKE PREMO's at this stage!

Idiots here will be stuck frustrated with mid priced trash that wont be able to be fixed later.

Rivo · 10/07/2018 at 14:23

Kind of stuck on 6 trades and $32k. Seeking help please Community?

D: Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Sicily, Laird, Austin (Mihocek,
Ridley);
M; Titch, Cripps, JPK, Danger, Zerrett, Oliver, Cogs, Dusty, (Ahern, Giro, J.Smith);
R: Gawn, Grundy, (Olango)
F: Heeney, T-Mac, Gray, D.Smith, Walters, Lambert, (Higgins, T.Smith).

1. Hold – wait for more cash to get the final D6?
2. Austin & T.Smith to Powell & Doedee
3. Austin & T.Smith to Powell & Webster
4. Austin & Ridley to Witherden & B.Lynch?

    pigjumpprusik · 10/07/2018 at 21:43

    Maybe hold and wait a week for Webster and get another price rise from Austin

      Rivo · 11/07/2018 at 07:06

      Thanks pigjump. Webster’s high BE will make him cheaper next week too.

Skinna · 10/07/2018 at 14:33

8 trades left, 18.8k in the bank. Other than Fritsch > Walters/Webster is there anything else i should be looking to do? Any help greatly appreciated!

Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Crisp [Austin, Heron]

Mitchell, Cripps, Kelly, Dangerfield, Oliver, Coniglio, Martin, Neale [Ahern, Giro, Phillips]

Gawn, Grundy [Cameron]

Gray, Westhoff, Heeney, Smith, Mclean, Fritsch [Guelfi, Smith]

    Jimmy · 10/07/2018 at 15:14

    I like Webster but bring him in next week. BE of 170

      The Ranger · 10/07/2018 at 15:32

      Your second name doesn't begin with W and end in ebster does it Jimmy?

        Jimmy · 10/07/2018 at 20:09

        Lol if you take out the game where he scored 13 because of injury his average is over 100 and will cost you 400k.

neil demonsdelight · 10/07/2018 at 15:22

Wayne Carey said Carlton should trade the no.1 pick to Melbourne for ready made players BUGG FROST and TYSON The Dees would use it on Rankine or Lukosious Don't know who wins as those 3 are still good not duds..

    DavidC · 10/07/2018 at 15:39

    Demons would win that trade I reckon.

    prizza · 10/07/2018 at 16:34

    Hey Neil i see the point in adding depth to a side in the window , but what would a cellar dwellar side gain out of getting these type of recycled players ?

      neil demons delight · 10/07/2018 at 17:04

      As Carey said last night EXPERIENCE and all are mid 20's believe me I wouldn't do it

        The Ranger · 10/07/2018 at 20:20

        Carey talks a load of crap.
        Why would Carlton opt out of one of the strongest drafts for years?
        They might trade pick one but it will be for multiple picks not recycled numptys.

    Lazza · 10/07/2018 at 18:58

    Carey is a demon mole …

      neil demons delight · 10/07/2018 at 19:45

      Carlton may well get one or more of these three but it will be as part of the gaff trade

        PizzaSafety · 10/07/2018 at 21:42

        They should try to pick up some older guys by overpaying them in free agency and keeping their no 1 pick, not by trading pick 1 for mediocre depth. They don't have the picks or the talent that GWS had and you therefore have to worry about players development without the experience around them.

    r_calve · 11/07/2018 at 18:27

    there not going to

Ben · 10/07/2018 at 16:32

Have rocky at m8 should I bring in a sub 500k midfield such as crouch for ronke and move ahern to bench on forward line or bring in McDonald making wingard my f7 / m9

    Reds22 · 10/07/2018 at 16:50

    Mcdonald

Tom · 10/07/2018 at 16:46

Thoughts on De Goey as an M9/F7 loop? Gives me DPP in the guts. Only issue is that I’ve got rocky, Shuey and De Goey at M7,8 and 9. I’m strapped for cash atm, I’ve got 4 trades and 400k, but saving a trade for Ridley – Webster in 2-3 weeks.

    TheGreatBozza · 11/07/2018 at 12:38

    He's my M9/F7 loop. Has the ability to go large

Rabbits16 · 10/07/2018 at 19:26

Oliver of Gaff for run home?

    Finnius · 10/07/2018 at 21:59

    Oliver for mine

      Rabbits16 · 11/07/2018 at 14:11

      he is my preferred option. Ronke goes for Oliver not a bad trade but leaves me no cover at forward line and given injuries this yr could be a riskarooni

PIES CAKEWALK 4 FLAG · 10/07/2018 at 19:28

FAKE PREMO DEATHTRAP!

WHEN WILL PEOPLE LEARN?

SamuraiPizzaCat · 10/07/2018 at 20:47

How many trades is everyone saving for injuries? I have 6 trades left, thinking about using one or two trades this week to set up a loop option, and save the rest for injury cover?

    Ahmad rubas · 11/07/2018 at 00:05

    I'm saving 3 trades for injuries in the rest of the year

    Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 10:41

    At least 4 id say as long as you have some solid cover and some money in the kitty. Having that money helps covering a injured premo if they go down in the 1st quarter as they will lose a good sum of money and you then may need to use 2 trades to get in who you want

    Rabbits16 · 11/07/2018 at 14:12

    3

    Randomcliche2 · 12/07/2018 at 13:11

    1 trade. JJ and Petracca are D7 and F7M9 respectively.

    Cheers mate. Will be good to be back into just SC advice for these young grass hoppers. Just need the saltiness to stay away.

PizzaSafety · 10/07/2018 at 21:30

I know the feeling Lek has when picking Rich, he looks sexy and unique in a supercoach side, he is aesthetically pleasing to watch with his penetrative kick, champion data gave him big props in the prospectus for his work shifting the ball from the backline right down the field into the forward 50 and rated him elite in 2017 and had him in their team of the year. It's obvious that Lek has a fetish for the aesthetics of Daniel Rich, I had the same feeling when I almost picked up Duncan before R12 but I went for J Selwood instead for value. Howe is in my team purely for aesthetic value as well and if I had a plethora of trades I would bring in Seedsman at D7 just to watch him run.

    INPieman · 11/07/2018 at 10:25

    He couldn't get a hard ball get at Auskick. I can't stand watching the soft prick. Never ever again

    PizzaSafety · 11/07/2018 at 15:41

    Realistically he's not a historically good enough scorer to pick up as a premo, I reckon Witherden is still a better pick at this stage based on potential (wouldn't pick him either). I don't reckon Rich is that soft at all for a rebounding defender, his problem is he's not enough of an accumulator. He's not hard enough to be an inside mid but he's also overcriticised by the supercoach community due to him being a past burn man.

Mark Fawcett · 10/07/2018 at 22:15

Thinking of holding again this week. Rank of 103. 5 trades and $12,600 in the kitty. Heaps of DPP links as long as I keep on top of any late outs, but bloody moving house this week so hopefully I find time to stay afloat:)

      Webster at D7, geeeeet outta here

        Mark Fawcett · 11/07/2018 at 00:56

        lol, I've got no idea who to play in my backline between the 7? Or I can swing Sicily or McDonald forward if needed and play Hogan or someone on the bench via Keefe. Or swing Heeney, McLean or Gray to midfield if required via Ahern. Quite a few options.

      Mark Fawcett · 11/07/2018 at 00:53

      haha:)

        PizzaSafety · 11/07/2018 at 06:08

        I would almost favour loopholing Hogan with McDonald and playing Webster, but maybe you should wait to see how Webster goes coming back from injury first? I'm ranked 4895 so favour your own opinions over mine.

    Russty_ · 11/07/2018 at 01:16

    Hey Mark, congrats on your rank, you're a better coach than me so don't listen if you don't want to lol.
    I'd probably swing Sicily forward and bench Hogan, has been up and down and his down scores are bad, won't be able to loophole but you'll have cover in case something bad happens while you're moving house, then Webster onfield, or Austin if you think he'll beat Webster, Austin averaging 82 so great backup.

      Mark Fawcett · 11/07/2018 at 02:59

      yeah, have been doing that on and off the past few weeks with Heeney out and alternating between who to play on the field. Hogan is a rollercoaster though, definitely agree with you there:) Was sort of leaning towards benching Hogan this week. Cheers for advice mate:)

Russty_ · 11/07/2018 at 01:32

Hey guys, have Ahern and Higgins on the mid bench, and T-Smith And Keefe on the forward bench.
Was thinking of maybe trading Smith to Sier and bringing Ahern or Higgins fwd for backup and banking some cash for the future.
Would only leave me with 4 trades though.
Could also get Powell but Sier looks the better player of the two I think..big bodied midfielder, can't be too bad if he's wearing the number 36.
Worth doing or better off holding with no fwd cover?

    Mark Fawcett · 11/07/2018 at 03:02

    what's your full team if you don't mind posting it? I'm thinking of bringing Powell in myself this week for the cash grab but will only leave me with 4 trades but about 112k in the bank in case I need it.

    Nuggety · 11/07/2018 at 03:37

    Higgins looking like great cover, 25 possies last week is pretty good. I still have T Kelly at M8 and Higgins on the mid bench swinging with Ahern and cant decide who should be my m9.. One has to be upgraded. I like the swing but could see Kelly saving me from the bench in a GF…

      Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 10:16

      Nice to have that luxury Nuggety. Im guessing you have played it smart this year and have trades up your sleeves? Will this be your last upgrade

        Nuggety · 11/07/2018 at 12:39

        I've had to be tight as a fish's arse with trades after having to move on Greene, Kelly, Crouch and urgh Armitage by Round 4…..
        7 left with enough cash to upgrade last mid will leave me 6 for injuries. Rank about 3k so going for leagues only now.
        How many u have left Holty?

          Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 13:36

          Only 5 mate. Far less then i was hoping but full premo and have Billings as cover. Do have Fyfe on my bench but as im going for leagues and sitting nicely in all of them, ill wait for finals now.

            Nuggety · 12/07/2018 at 17:35

            Best of luck mate!

    Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 10:13

    Agree you need the cover Russty. Rhis will obviously allow u to hold trades for finals. Bought in Billings as my F7 last week which also can act as a swing when using Mclean or Heeney to the midfield with Ahern. Im holding now until finals

Dale · 11/07/2018 at 08:10

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.

    TheGreatBozza · 11/07/2018 at 12:24

    You could look to consolidate your side and move Hibberd to D7.

    Maybe something like Holman to Sier and Naughton to a premo defender – Lloyd (not sure if you'll have enough $$), Howe, Crisp.

    Maverick_ · 11/07/2018 at 12:59

    I reckon Holman down to sier/Powell
    And if you can swing Sicily to ya defense and grab wingard for naughton if he interests you.
    Wingard keeps his midfield role he will avg 100+ from here on.
    That’ll shift hibberd to D7

    James · 11/07/2018 at 13:29

    bye bye dusty i reckon

    Mark Fawcett · 11/07/2018 at 21:26

    Also, small to good chance Simpson is out as well, might have to hold Hibberd for another week. I'd be looking to get Lloyd in as other than that your team looks pretty good. Or play Hibberd at D7. Can you get McDonald in your backline maybe and use his and Sicily with their DPP link. Works great for me. Otherwise maybe upgrade Dusty to Zorko at 512k. Minus Ahern who you want to keep, you don't have many rookies worth anything.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 11/07/2018 at 09:46

Bont out for 3 weeks.

    Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 10:07

    Doesnt affect me but gee this has been a horrendous season for injuries

    neil demons delight · 11/07/2018 at 11:26

    dees play bullies this week and he is a champ but macca is back

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 11/07/2018 at 11:33

      Easy win Neil!

Jim_bob321 · 11/07/2018 at 10:14

Great news… Bont is out.. what absolute carnage….
4 trades left 139k in the bank..
Was thinking of only going J.Smith down to Brad Lynch but now im unsure.
Midfield currently consists of: Danger, Gaff, Mitchell, Cripps, Duncan, Curnow, Bont, Coniglio
2-3 is definitely trade able but who would be my best option?
Would go macrae but that breakeven is ghastly..
Clayton Oliver, Pendles or even Kelly..
Need the community's advice

    Holty01 · 11/07/2018 at 10:35

    Hi Jim. As you are running low on trades you may even try to bring in Shuey as cover until Bont returns. Otherwise all you have mentioned are good replacements.
    I am slightly worried about Kelly however. Since he has returned he has failed to reach the ton 4 times (all 90s however) from his 6 games. Those were against solid sides. His 2 scores of 140+ have been against the Suns and Lions.
    His run home seems tough as well playing 5 of 7 teams competing to play finals. And 4 of those teams have good taggers who will probably go straight to Kelly.

    Hawks · 11/07/2018 at 19:26

    Breakevens are only relevant if you are looking to trade Macrae out, once he is in your team at this stage of the season, with so few trades who cares what price he is. What you need to consider is who brings the points.

TheGreatBozza · 11/07/2018 at 12:34

Any trade advice for this week? I'm sitting at 1269 rank which is tracking towards my best finish.

7 trades, 0 cash in the bank

DEF: Simpson, Yeo, Sicily, Laird, Howe, Savage (Richards, Austin)
MID: Titch, Kelly, Cripps, Danger, Pendles, Beams, Cogs, Dusty (Ahern, Giro, Dawson)
R: Grundy, Gawn (Hayes)
FWD: Westhoff, Heeney, Gray, D.Smith, Walters, McLean (De Goey, T.Smith)

Ideally I want to move Savage to D7, which is hard given the lack of funds. I have JDG as my F7, M9 swing with Ahern.

I can go T.Smith to a non playing FWD/DEF like Ballenden to swing Sicily if required, then go Richards up to Brayshaw, Hurley or Webster.

Other option is hold to let someone like Webster bottom out

    INPieman · 11/07/2018 at 13:16

    You have Howe Kelly Beams & Hoff. I have Crisp Oliver Rocky & the Chad. Apart from that our premos are the same. 7 trades & full premo with a spare is a great place to be in. Wait for Webster to bottom out for a def spare. You should have a strong finish. Congrats on your season Boz

r_calve · 11/07/2018 at 18:26

what forward or back should I trade in, Westhoff, gray or Lloyd

    BlueBaggerJosh · 11/07/2018 at 18:38

    Lloyd

    Ja191 · 11/07/2018 at 18:44

    depends if moneys an issue, i'd rate them lloyd/hoff/gray in that order

    r_calve · 11/07/2018 at 19:26

    ill go westhoff and then trade in Lloyd when he drops off and make McGovern d7

    Randomcliche2 · 12/07/2018 at 13:17

    Don't see Llyod dropping off. Llyod Gray Westoff 4 me.

Dogsdik · 11/07/2018 at 21:33

One trade left. 3k in the bank, soon to be none as i pay homage to the SC gods with an extravagant Bunnings voucher, my team:
B- Sic, Lloyd, Hurley, Laird, Yeo, Savage (Smith, Cumming)
M- Danger, Dusty, JPK, Titch, Cripps, JKelly, Oliver, Parker (Ahern, Barry, Brown)
R- Max, Grundy
F-McLean,Smith, Hoff, Heeney, TMac, Walters (Battle, Keeffe)
Just doing some back exercises and stretches now so it’s not as sore when I enevitably get bent over and reamed by the guardians of Super Coach immortality

    Randomcliche2 · 12/07/2018 at 13:23

    Ouch. 1 trade no premo cover. Hold that trade tight, play rookies as long as you can, consider eating a donut now and then, (they are good for your sanity) before the inevitable season ending injury.

      Dogsdik · 12/07/2018 at 18:31

      I know. But i can can flip a few around and i reckon I’ve got enough high scorers to cover having to play one or two rooks. The trade is for the season ending ruck injury

ryan3315 · 12/07/2018 at 17:16

Brayshaw, Cripps or McDonald?

Already have Hurley, Yeo, Lloyd, Simpson, Laird

Lekdog · 14/07/2018 at 00:21

I knew Daisy Thomas wasn’t a bad suggestion…

    Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 23:05

    Daisy is experiencing a renaissance man revival of AFL Footytude!…he is truly enlightened and has returned from the quagmire of muddy shiteness…lol
