Lekdog was left alone this week, Patch clearly doesn’t know him very well but 43 minutes into his Daniel Rich podcast, Lek realised that Patch was trying to teach him a lesson on living alone without a crutch…

Lekdog said stuff that and got Barron Von Crow and Damo into the studio to answer community questions.


Have a listen and blame Patch for anything incorrect in the podcast.

Thoughts on Tom mcdonald as last defence upgrade?

Have already got Lloyd, Yeo,simpson, Laird, Hurley

Or is there someone else I should consider?

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2018 at 00:34

    Solid back line. Consider Tmac if you want/need the swing and then take Howe. Oh, and Howe is sitting next to JJ in my backline…#inform.

    DANGER1VDUSTY2 · 24/07/2018 at 03:41

    That's the same back 6 as me (brought in McDonald last week for Sicily).

    Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 17:12

    I like him, Witherden if you want a cheaper option

      Billobill · 26/07/2018 at 21:02

      I've gone Hurnand Crisp??

        Lekdog · 27/07/2018 at 09:06

        Crisp averages 89 when Sam Murray plays (114 when he doesn’t), so he may not give you quite what you want ๐Ÿ™‚

nutsack · 23/07/2018 at 23:37

cant wait to listen once again ๐Ÿ™‚

PS my girlfriend says Patchy sounds like he has a big tongue and balls as big as grapefruits. something about spilling more seed that Michael J Fox around a bird feeder… and then walked off.

BigAl_15 · 24/07/2018 at 07:22

Thoughts on what to do?

B: Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley, Laird, Savage (Lynch, R Smith)
M: Titch, Cripps, Oliver, Gaff, Duncan, Neale, Coniglio, E Curnow (Ahern, Spargo, Ainsworth)
F: D Smith, McDonald, Gray, McLean, Heeney, Fritsch (L Ryan, Battle)

I currently have 2 trades left with 55k in the bank

    Corey · 24/07/2018 at 07:31

    Hold your trades I know it’s painful but with only two left you’ll need them in these last few weeks

      BigAl_15 · 24/07/2018 at 22:24

      What about upgrading Savage?

Richard · 24/07/2018 at 07:40

Thoughts on what trades to make.
Backs: Laird, Lloyd, Hurley, Yeo, Crisp, Webster

Midfield: Mitchell, Dangerfield, Oliver, Cripps, Merrett, Zorko, Ablett , Martin

Ruck: Gawn, Martin

Forward: Gray, Heeney, Menegola, Mclean, Taranto, Billing’s.

I have 7 trades left and am playing in cash leagues. I am thinking of trading one of my defensive benches down to that sydney rook whose on the bubble and trading billings to devon smith which would still leave me with 50k. Is this a good trade or are there other priorities I have? Trades aren’t a problem as I have 7

    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 10:38

    Nice work conserving the trades. Smith is in good form and is a nice option. Hoff and Wingard provide you with DPP depending on who is on your bench so you might consider them instead. Patch also mentions Hawkins and Rhys Stanley if you're feeling creative.

    The only other player I'd look at upgrading before Billings is Webster. I think Billings, as frustrating as he can be, can be held a bit longer and there are better defensive options you could move Webster onto first i.e. Simpson, Brayshaw or Witherden

    Mark Fawcett · 25/07/2018 at 16:39

    I'd be looking at probably Ablett as they'll most likely start resting him soon ready for Finals. What's your bench looking like though?

Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 10:20

How many trades are people sitting on? I have only 2 left with 246K to make upgrades closer to finals.

    Derek · 24/07/2018 at 11:37

    I have 4 and that is making me nervous.

    I have a couple of players a really need to upgrade, Rocky and McGrath but right now I’m going to leave them in case there are more injuries.

      dontblushbaby · 24/07/2018 at 13:44

      Same with Rocky, but not sure who to go to out of – Macrae,Neale,Gaff,Kelly and Coniglio are my choices to pick from

        Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 13:51

        6 of one and 1/2 a dozen of the other in my opinion

          Derek · 24/07/2018 at 17:15

          get fyfe when he is back

      INPieman · 24/07/2018 at 13:50

      Like Derek I have 4 with Rocky & Savage I'd love to move on

    AuroraBorealis?! · 24/07/2018 at 11:45

    Only 2 left with 100k in the bank for upgrades, still two short of full premo

      Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 12:05

      I'm also two short as I no longer count (and never should have) Caddy as a premo. Trying to hold out two more weeks and then I will upgrade guelfi and Caddy in one go.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 24/07/2018 at 12:07

    Team is complete, 3 trades left to cover injuries

    The Ranger · 24/07/2018 at 12:21

    3 left after having to trade NIcNat and Sicily last week.
    Holding for the inevitable injuries/general soreness now.

    Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2018 at 12:53

    I'm in the no trades club.

      hedski · 24/07/2018 at 13:09

      I'm the president of the club.

        Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 13:16

        It's becoming an increasingly popular club

        Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2018 at 20:22

        Technically I joined this week, but really it was last week, I just didn't pull the trigger on Nic Nat. Which round did you establish this esteemed club hedski?

          hedski · 24/07/2018 at 21:57

          About 3 years ago, rejoined last week RC, traded Sic and Nic to Stef and Jezza Howe.
          I kinda mozzed myself with my team name this year, don't tempt the sc gods, they will smash you.

            Russty_ · 25/07/2018 at 00:47

            How's your bench cover mate?…hope you get through to give it a good crack.

              hedski · 25/07/2018 at 09:24

              Its OK Russty, I have Mihocek, Austin, Ahern, Gyro, Phillips, McInerney, Guelfi and T.Smith.

                Doc_1 · 25/07/2018 at 18:51

                I’m well and truly in the club with NicNat pushing me over the line.
                Sicily and Webster on the pine don’t help but thankfully heron got a game from know where and Keefe even gave me bench cover!!!

    Ahmad rubas · 24/07/2018 at 15:18

    7 trades 300k

    dognino · 24/07/2018 at 16:16

    I’ve got 2 left with 146k in the bank. Hoping there’s no more LTIs in the next few weeks, have been full promo for the last few but there’s sideways trades going on every week for those LTI.

    Da_Boysh · 24/07/2018 at 16:23

    I have 3 trades no cash, full premo except for I guess Shaw..

    Finnius · 24/07/2018 at 18:32

    2 trades left, but full premo and happy with my side. Gonna be a tight next 5 weeks.

    Danners · 24/07/2018 at 19:04

    4 trades and $210k in the bank with full premo. Can't remember the last time I actually had this many trades at this time of the year

    BrownlowBoy · 24/07/2018 at 20:00

    7 prior to any this round.

    Rivo · 24/07/2018 at 20:13

    3 trades left with $27k. Full premo with rookie cover. Covering injuries from here.

    Trades · 24/07/2018 at 20:14

    8 trades
    Rockliff to Cripps this week

      Russty_ · 25/07/2018 at 00:50

      8??? that's a lot, how you travelling rank-wise, and in you Leagues?

        Trades · 25/07/2018 at 08:41

        Cash league top 4 (highest points against too) ranked around 9500
        Started with Gray and Danger
        Ablett, Fyfe were my only LTI that I can remember. I can't see trade history on app

        Trades · 25/07/2018 at 08:43

        Back up I've got Mihocek, Ahern,Spargo, Fritsch

    KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 21:07

    1 and 10k rip

    Lazza · 24/07/2018 at 22:00

    5 trades with $11k.., Full premo if you count Nank.

    Mark Fawcett · 25/07/2018 at 16:41

    3 trades and 140,700 to play with. No more trades now unless necessary. Lots of DPP links to help as well between all lines. Holding Rocky as my M8 for now.

Laird Lad Donuts · 24/07/2018 at 12:00

Tom Hawkins or Tom McDonald for Sicily?

    Da_Boysh · 24/07/2018 at 16:28

    i like Hawkins

    Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 17:13

    Hawkins the biggerpod, like him

      Derek · 24/07/2018 at 17:16

      he is the Cloke of 2012

        Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 22:41

        Bruen Maneuver

        Derek · 25/07/2018 at 07:41

        Classic Buffalo bounce

          neil demons delght · 25/07/2018 at 14:50

          good memory was wish the mag back

    Laird Lad Donuts · 24/07/2018 at 18:01

    Cheers boys Hawkins it is

KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 12:16

I haven't posted my team in any threads this year but this is it and it's definitely not changing with 10k and 1 single trade left

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley, Hibberd (Rice, Redman)
MID: Mitchell, Oliver, Cripps, Danger, Kelly, JPK, Cogs, Dusty (Ahern, Giro, Dawson)
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Olango)
FWD: Heeney, McLean, Gray, Westhoff, Smith, Walters (Billings, Smith)

Works well with Billings as an F7/M9 emergency and F7 loophole option but unfortunately due to so many injury trades I am now stuck with Hibberd on field for the rest of the year


    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 12:21

    You could always throw out a hail mary sideways trade for Hibberd if it comes to a crunch finals game or GF

      KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 15:19

      Yeah but with 10k can't get much

        Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 15:54

        Could go a sneaky Tomlinson, Haynes or Jake Kelly. As I said, it would be a complete hail mary and only if it's a GF or you have nothing to lose in a crunch final

    Filth Wizard · 24/07/2018 at 16:42

    Maybe Bachar Houli when he returns drom injury.

      KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 21:05

      Cheers guys I'm kinda hoping Rance drops 21k this week hahaha

    TheGreatBozza · 24/07/2018 at 21:33

    Hibberd to Aliir Aliir? Or has he gone up too much now

      KingWinter7 · 25/07/2018 at 13:34

      Had a look at that but I'm 7k off

    Mark Fawcett · 25/07/2018 at 17:53

    Maybe look at Josh Walker, fairly consistent in the 80's over the past 5 weeks.

MarkT · 24/07/2018 at 14:03

Hi community,

6 trades and 250k in the bank. Savage and Billings are my weakest players. But I'd also love to get Macrae into my midfield, maybe sacking Beams or Crouch. Please advise.

DEF Lloyd, Simpson, Yeo, Hurley, Laird, Savage
MID Titch, Cripps, Danger, Oliver, Pendles, Coniglio, Crouch, Beams
RUCK Gawn, Grundy
FWD D Smith, Westhoff, Gray, Heeney, Walters, Billings


    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 14:53

    With six trades and a solid line up you could take your time subject to your likelihood of making finals. Maybe just one trade at a time to balance unforeseen injuries

    Russty_ · 24/07/2018 at 18:00

    I'd get rid of Savage and Billings this week…and keep Beams and Crouch.

    Danners · 24/07/2018 at 19:03

    Upgrade someone on your bench so you have coverage. At this time of the year, it is a waste of trade if you are trading out playing premos

    KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 21:07

    Yeah with that team, 6 trades and a warchest I'd look to upgrade bench options to loophole

BadgerHoney7 · 24/07/2018 at 14:33

What is everyone going for captains this week?

Option 1: VC Danger v Lions and loophole him into Cripps v Gold Coast
Option 2: VC Danger v Lions and loophole him into Titch v Freo
Option 3: VC Cripps v Goal Coast and loophole him into Titch v Freo

Help appreciated

PS: Maybe even Gawn v Adelaide

    DavidC · 24/07/2018 at 14:42

    Titch gets the Banfield tag this week, avoid.

      Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 14:50

      Yeah that is what is putting me off a bit. Steele will probably go to Kelly, but he plays a softer tagging role compared to Banfield

    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 14:43

    I have a feeling Gawn will go big v Adelaide, so I'll be going Gawn (VC) and Titch (C). This combo rarely lets me down. That being said, I may go J Kelly (VC) vs Saints into Gawn.

    Finnius · 24/07/2018 at 18:33

    I'm going option one badge

      Randomcliche2 · 24/07/2018 at 21:21

      No Titch and Gawn in your combo has me a little worried for you.

    Rivo · 24/07/2018 at 20:20

    Gawn into Titch for me.

    KingWinter7 · 24/07/2018 at 21:05

    Danger into Gawn for mine I reckon

    Ahmad rubas · 24/07/2018 at 21:13

    I'm going Cripps to hopefully get us our 2nd win of the season VC into macrae back at Mars stadium with Bont back in as C

Hannah · 24/07/2018 at 14:38

Any thoughts on my team? I’m planning on upgrading Mihocek to a premo but I don’t know which one. And should I upgrade Fritsch so that my team is full premo or should I save a trade?
I have $139.9k and 3 trades.

DEF: Yeo, Laird, Hurley, TMac, Rance, Mihocek (Lynch, Taylor)
MID: Titch, Cripps, Danger, Oliver, Kelly, Crouch, Dusty, Rocky (Ahern, Giro, Sier)
RUC: Gawn, Martin (Balta)
FWD: Breust, Gunston, McLean, Heeney, Buddy, Fritsch (Smith, Garlett)


    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 14:46

    Depending on whether or not you are guaranteed finals I'd let mihoceck make more money (still -8 BE). I'd just look at one trade: Fritsch > Menegola/Hoff/Wingard/De Goey

    Derek · 24/07/2018 at 17:18

    this time of year, hold onto the warm bodies

Bobby · 24/07/2018 at 14:41

Who is more of a priority to trade first. Webster or Billings. Who is likely to average more from here on out from this round. Cheers community

    Cobee Bear · 24/07/2018 at 14:51

    Webster in my opinion due to recent injury history

      Derek · 24/07/2018 at 17:17

      Webster struggling to get on the field

    Jum · 24/07/2018 at 15:00

    Billings 100%

    Finnius · 24/07/2018 at 18:33

    I'd be holding both tbh

      Mark Fawcett · 25/07/2018 at 17:54

      exactly. Hold both and look at the rest of your team. Both can go off or at least be consistent good scorers

Jim · 24/07/2018 at 15:32

How many make finals in a 10 person league?

    Da_Boysh · 24/07/2018 at 16:24

    i am also curious

      Big fact hunt · 24/07/2018 at 17:01

      I am in one everyone is a winner 8 teams for the finals

Jupiter · 24/07/2018 at 15:40

Dangerfield is one of, if not, the best player in the AFL. So why isn’t he an automatic VC or C every week? Because his dopey coach generally puts him forward in the last quarter instead of leaving him in the midfield.

    Russty_ · 24/07/2018 at 17:59

    Think he played mostly mid last week, was getting a pretty good tag from Harmes which stunted his score.

      Trades · 24/07/2018 at 20:18

      I predict he'll spend a lot of time up forward against Brisbane. Game was on the line against demons

        Randomcliche2 · 25/07/2018 at 12:44

        I'd look closely at the ins/outs. There was a bit of structure change i.e. more forwards who came in last week.

          Valens_FC · 25/07/2018 at 13:09

          Danger was on 100 points at half time against the Dees and only went forward after the Harmes tag proved effective in the third quarter. Randomcliche is right – and the key structural change has been Menzel returning, which has reduced the need for Danger to go forward.

    Marty · 26/07/2018 at 18:49

    Tends to go forward in the last quarter when the game is for grabs.

Audrey Horne · 24/07/2018 at 15:41

Does anyone know % ownership of De Goey? My final upgrade is Fritsch. I don’t have Gray but feel with the finals coming up I need a bit of a pod. Already have Heeney, Hoff, McLean, Walters and Billings.

    dognino · 24/07/2018 at 16:14

    7% ownership, I’ve got him, very up and down , just have to hope others in my team are up when he’s down .

      Audrey Horne · 24/07/2018 at 18:43

      Thanks. Thinking I need Gray and hope couple of my other pods can make the difference.

Stacky23 · 24/07/2018 at 18:17

last fwd upgrade, have 470k to play with and Heeney,Smith,Walters,Mclean,De goey
Robby gray or a pod, particularly interested in Mitch wallis now that dahlhaus is out, back to back tons and a low score of 79
any other players i should look at and is wallis a legitimate option

    Stacky23 · 24/07/2018 at 18:21

    whoops wrote this just before they started speaking about wallis

      Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 22:42

      Wallis solid

Danners · 24/07/2018 at 19:01

Great podcast lads! Having a little revival to finish off my season, with a bit of coin in the bank, I'm looking at maybe getting bench cover. My team as it stands:

DEF: Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Laird, Hurley, Webster (Austin, Keefe)
MID: Titch, Cripps, Danger, Zerrett, Gaff, Neale, Coniglio, Dusty (Ahern, Barry, T.Murphy)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldy (Cameron)
FWD: Smith, Mundy, TMac, Gray, McLean, Heeney (T.Smith, Battle)
4 trades and $210k in the bank

Was maybe looking doing Austin to Brayshaw so I have Def/Mid cover, but not sure whether it is the best move
Thoughts community?

    BrownlowBoy · 24/07/2018 at 20:11

    I don't mind that.

    You could easily just sit on that for another week incase of injuries.

    Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 22:43

    Could go without a trade but my first thought (before seeing your last point) was a Def/Mid swing in Brayshaw. He'd likely sit mostly in defence but it means bringing in an o'connor type too…that's the place where you'll most benefit imo

      Danners · 24/07/2018 at 23:05

      Already got Murphy from North in my mids that can swing to Defence, so should be alright. Thanks guys

Yeahnah · 24/07/2018 at 19:55

As my M9 Fyfe is still 3 weeks away, I'm thinking of trading him now. Can go to Cripps/Macrae/Gaff as M9 and have a premo emergency loophole option, or I can swing Ahern into the mids and bring in R.Gray/Hoff/Hawkins as F7, however with Battle as my F8 I can't loop the forwards score. Thoughts?

    BrownlowBoy · 24/07/2018 at 20:09

    Show your team?

      Yeahnah · 24/07/2018 at 21:34

      Yeo, Simpson, Laird, Crisp, Howe, Hurley (Richards, Ridley)
      Titch, Danger, Oliver, Zerrett, Kelly, Cogs, Kennedy, Dusty (Fyfe, Giro, J. Dawson)
      Gawn, Martin
      D. Smith, Gunston, Menegola, McLean, Heeney, Walters (Ahern, Battle)

      3 trades 20k in bank

    Randomcliche2 · 25/07/2018 at 12:15

    I really like the extra mid option with Dusty so hit and miss. Cripps for mine. Very strong team, well done.

      Yeahnah · 25/07/2018 at 14:31

      Thanks mate, with Oliver potentially injured might be forced to trade for an M9!

TheGreatBozza · 24/07/2018 at 21:40

Any thoughts for this week? 6 trades, 10k bank

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

Leaning towards Austin to O’Riordan, Richards to Short/Witherden, but then I lose my loop in austin.

I’d love to get Macrae but don’t want to drop any of my mids

Derek · 24/07/2018 at 21:57

Does LEK go for Carlton?

    dontblushbaby · 24/07/2018 at 22:42

    Yes, he has previously revealed this but will not take any blame for their demise

    Lekdog · 24/07/2018 at 22:44

    Haha I do mention the Blues a lot…especially when Patch is not around to stop me

Rivo · 25/07/2018 at 08:09

3 trades and $27k with swing sets in place & a settled team. In the top 4 for leagues and ranked at 2k. Any need to trade this week or hold on to cover injuries????

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

    Cobee Bear · 25/07/2018 at 08:37

    You're in a far better position than me so take the advice with a grain of salt: hold!

      Rivo · 25/07/2018 at 08:52

      Thanks Cobee. Injuries have hurt a lot of teams, is yours is one of them?

        Cobee Bear · 25/07/2018 at 10:29

        Not injuries, I've just had a bad year. Started Hibberd and Billings, plus Goldy started slow and Sloane got injured early on. Also I started Gartlett and Venables as rookies who stank it up and got injured. I also traded Fritsch to Caddy during byes only for Fritsch to go ballistic and Caddy to become my new Billings! Been playing catch up ever since.

        Quite happy with my team now, but I've left it far too late for rankings. I am a chance to win two of my leagues though so fingers crossed!

          Rivo · 25/07/2018 at 11:48

          Yeah that’s a tough start for sure. I only had Hibberd & Garlett from that lot & punted then mid season. Best of luck with your league finals.

            Cheers Rivo, you too!

    Derek · 25/07/2018 at 12:06

    you're doing ok

Swoopster · 25/07/2018 at 12:09

Hi community,

Who to bring in for NicNat and last mid upgrade from Petracca? Can get anyone.
6 trades left, 338k in the kitty

Thinking Grundy & one off Gaff/Neale/Zerrett.
Or can wait one more week for Macrae?
Dusty & Cogs are options but want more of a POD, unless we think one of them will go ballistic.

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley, Ryan (Duman, Lynch)
MID: Mitchell, Oliver, Cripps, Danger, Kelly, Pendlebury, M Crouch, Petracca (E Phillips, J Garlett, Barry)
RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Cameron)
FWD: Heeney, McLean, Gray, Franklin, Smith, Walters (Ahern, Powell)

    Hawks · 25/07/2018 at 13:30

    Grundy for NicNat & Dusty for Petracca.

    Dusty is looking like getting back to his best, and peaking at the right end of the season.

Richard · 25/07/2018 at 12:13

D: Yeo Simpson Laird Hurn Crisp Hurley ( Austin Lynch )
M: Mitchell Cripps Dangerfield Oliver Pendlebury Zorko Kennedy Rockliff ( Ahern Phillips Giro )
R: Gawn Grundy
F: Smith Westhoff Mundy Mclean Heeny Billings ( Battie Powell )
2 trades left $199,200 cash
Ranked in the 4,000"s
Ride my luck with this team but overall best season i've had thanks to the community and the boys advice in charge of website.

    Hawks · 25/07/2018 at 13:31

    Nice team, hold trades for insurance purposes.

    neil demons delght · 25/07/2018 at 17:37

    The only weak link is Billings but you do have cover I would hold this week pending selections good luck great team NDD

neil demons delght · 25/07/2018 at 12:28

At the dees training and Oliver went off early /.Overheard the trainers calling it a hip flexor and no chances will be taken.Good news was Hunt training ;but Clarry must be doubfull Hope not NDD

    JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2018 at 13:27

    Not good news for the Dees or my SC team, but if in doubt better to rest him than play and end up losing Clarry for even longer.

      neil demons delght · 25/07/2018 at 14:46

      Particularly playing the crows over there .Updated from the inner sanctum its only a twinge and may respond but no chances – 6 day turnaround and a definite no

    Holty01 · 25/07/2018 at 15:23

    It sux but i would not be surprised if he plays with a niggle if its not too bad. Melbourne cant afford not to take that risk as Adelaide is a must win for them. If they lose they will probably be out of the 8. Anyway, if he plays ill have the E on him just in case

Finals · 25/07/2018 at 14:43

Who can tell me when finals start and how they work? I'm top of my league out of 18 teams. Thanks!

    Holty01 · 25/07/2018 at 15:24

    Finals start next weekend. They work exactly the same as the AFL finals. Top 8 qualify with 1vs4, 2vs3 and so on.

      Finals · 25/07/2018 at 20:48

      Thanks Holty so not this round coming the one after?

        Russty_ · 25/07/2018 at 21:07

        Yep correct mate, finals start round 20, if you win your first finals game and you're in the top 4, you get a week off too, gives you a chance to hold onto your trades.
        Teams 5th to 8th on the ladder play sudden death first week.
        If you lose your first match and you're top 4, you get a second chance the week after.

Mark Fawcett · 25/07/2018 at 18:29

Possibly now thinking of trading Rocky to Pendlebury!!?? 3 trades left and 140 in the bank. Would leave me only 2 trades left though. Don't want to risk late outs in the coming weeks as I'm going for overall, currently 70th. Any thoughts?

    Redpill5 · 25/07/2018 at 21:27

    Congrats on the ranking pain. Pendles was my last trade in, like the pies run home. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    Lekdog · 25/07/2018 at 22:18

    Tough, I’d compare their runs home…I feel like 2 trades for 5 weeks is probably not enough though

    Da_Boysh · 26/07/2018 at 16:52

    you better hold and hope Rocky comes good

Lekdog · 25/07/2018 at 22:18

Cripps. I love you. Pls cuddle me.

mutu87 · 25/07/2018 at 23:42

Got 6 trades left with Rocky as M8
Trade him to J Kelly or J Macrea

    Da_Boysh · 26/07/2018 at 16:57

    I trust Kelly, I think the giants will storm home

Michael · 26/07/2018 at 00:45

6 trades left.
If you have neither do you bring in Josh Kelly or Dusty Martin. Thanx all. Rank Mid 200's.

    Valens_FC · 26/07/2018 at 07:59

    Tough one! Reckon Kelly just edges it. Saints and Carlton next couple of weeks looks juicy.

      Da_Boysh · 26/07/2018 at 16:51

      mid 200s with that many trades! Wowwwwweeeee go son

    Marty · 26/07/2018 at 18:50


      Michael · 26/07/2018 at 20:52

      Thanx Lads yeah I reckon Kelly as well. Think I'll have to bring in Robbie Gray as well to go with Westhoff, Dev. Smith, Mundy, McLean and Heeney. Dusty and his Price is almost too good to pass up tho.

Jacob · 26/07/2018 at 18:35

Is billings or taranto to devon smith worth a trade? Or should I hold both of them? Currently sitting on 7 trades and need to win the next league game in order to make top 4.

    GB91 · 26/07/2018 at 18:54

    Taranto to Smith for mine, depending on who your opponent has. Getting the double chance is surely worth a trade when you have so many in the bank? Plenty of us would kill for 7 trades.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2018 at 20:13

    Billings out for me…Taranto is in a good team heading for finals, and Billings is all over the place.

GB91 · 26/07/2018 at 19:05

What's everyone's thoughts on my predicament?

3 trades left with 120k in the bank.

Do I use two trades to get McDonald in for Austin and Taylor? Will allow me to loop/cover a player in either the DEF or FWD. Have Rocky at M9 so I'd have cover for injuries if need be with 1 trade in hand for a LTI.

Alternative is to hold and hope that Taylor scores well enough to cover any late outs each week.

Likely to miss top 4 by around 1.2% so this weeks game isn't overly critical .

Peter · 26/07/2018 at 19:10

Mcdonald Or Brayshaw for last defensive spot?

    Russty_ · 26/07/2018 at 19:14

    Brayshaw's in the better form of the 2, Melbourne have a tough run home though, Harris Andrews could be a good smokey option, back this week.

Billobill · 26/07/2018 at 21:19

One premo mid to upgrade Ahern. Kelly or Macrae or other?

    Billobill · 26/07/2018 at 21:45

    Or maybe Oliver if I can afford?

    Billobill · 26/07/2018 at 21:45

    Or maybe Oliver?

      Cobee Bear · 27/07/2018 at 10:23


Terrence · 27/07/2018 at 10:55

Howdy partners, i havnt been here in a couple of weeks, cant help but notice the wow/66 absence, banned? looks like business as usual

    Russty_ · 27/07/2018 at 18:23

    One of them was…good riddance, Wow still posts occasionally.

Mark Fawcett · 27/07/2018 at 11:16

What to do if going for overall ranking guys? Rocky to Pendlebury and 2 trades left and 27,900 or hold Rocky and have 3 trades and 140,700 left?

abcooz · 04/04/2019 at 18:37
