Round 19 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

A wise man once said; “trade ass off”

For those playing for league glory, whether by choice or because a decent rank is completely out of the question, round 19 marks the end of the SuperCoach home and away season (where has the time gone?!). If you are jaded at this point, convinced that no matter who you bring in they are just going to get injured anyway, at this point of the year half assed over trading is infinitely better than your half assed under trading during the year.

Patch is still MIA this week. We miss him but we also get to blame everything on him. The parking fine I received this week? I put him down as the nominated driver so Patch if you’re reading expect the fine soon. The mooted 6-6-6 rule? Bloody Patch! In his absence, Damo has been the real MVP this week, joining Lek and Barron in the weekly gold that is the podcast. As well as his usual comprehensive coverage of the state leagues, Barron casts his experienced eye onto the 2019 season in Around the Grounds this week. Damo gives Captain McCaptainface a breath of fresh air and backs it up with his usual sheet of cheaty goodness.

THE NEWS

Jordan Dawson (MID / FWD – 123.9k) gets his first taste of senior action for the Swans tonight after a casual 23 tackles last week in the NEAFL. Heath Grundy returns as well. Essendon have got Jake Stringer back for the must win clash. Will be nice be nice to see Aaron Francis getting a run as well. The much maligned Shaun McKernon is actually a pretty big out.

Tiges v Pies Saturday arvo at the ‘G! What are can you ask for? Jordan de Goey is Jordan de Goeney this week and probably next with bone stress in his leg. Darcy Moore is back after being a late out last week. Liam Baker (FWD – 103.9k) gets his reward after some serious form for the Tigers VFL side while Jacob Townsend comes in for his first game since round 9. Moore and Menadue make way. The Cats have replaced small forward Jamaine Jones with another in the form of Lachie Fogarty. Brisbane welcome back some backline experience in the form of Luke Hodge and Harris Andrews. Sam Taylor replaces Lachie Keeffe at the Giants. The Saints have done us no favours, dropping popular bench coverage players in Ed Phillips, Hunter Clark, and Bailey Rice (and also David Armitage for some reason??) Nick Coffield is amongst the ins. Tex replaces The Dood at the Crows in the only change in the match against the Dees. The Suns have strengthened their midfield and Carlton regain Dale Thomas for the most anticipated game of the year as they line up against Carlton. There’s 8 changes between the clubs but I feel if you have any of them you gave up in round 5.   

Will Walker (MID – 117.3k) will make his debut this week against the Eagles. The injured Alex Morgan is their only out so far. The Eagles have lost Lewis Jetta for the game, Jack Petruccelle would be the obvious name if the Eagles don’t want to lose any pace. Freo have named Sean Darcy and Andrew Brayshaw, as well as experienced duo Stephen Hill and Ballas. No confirmed outs as yet. Jaegar is back for the Hawks as so is Mr Silk himself. Daniel Howe gets to book his European holiday early. Getting real tired of these wholesale changes in Sunday games… Dollhaus and Tom Boyd are missing at the Dogs. Ze Bont is back. Fergus Greene (FWD 123.9k) has been named in the forward pocket and Callum Porter (MID – 117.3k) on the extended bench. Port have got back Tom Jonas and Paddy Ryder, Billy Frampton (RUC / FWD – 123.9k) and Kane Farrell (DEF / MID – 117.3) take their rightful place on the extended bench as they’ve done for weeks now. Can you just play them Ken so I can stop writing their names?

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

As was the case last week, if you need to downgrade to make cash then waiting that extra week for them to be on the bubble is a waste.

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

Jarrod Lienert (92 last week)

-89 – Colin O’Riordan*

-30 – James Worpel

-11 – Brent Daniels

-4 – Jacob Heron

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

169 – Maxwell Gawn

166 – Brodie Grundy

166 – Kade Simpson

163 – Jelwood

163 – Luke Breust

162 – JPK

159 – Llooooooooooooyd

147 – Pendles

145 – Dayne Beams

141 – Cal Sinclair

141 – Andrew Gaff

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

At the peak of his powers Jackson Macrae was sitting at a frankly ridiculous 727k, had a 5-week average of 152, and just generally making a mockery of us idiots who didn’t hitch our star to his (band)wagon. Well he’s 540k now, had two weeks back from a hamstring (scoring 131 and 74) and faces the Saints and Carlton during SuperCoach finals.

Oh, and he’s only in 7.8% of teams. Jump. On.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

If Tigers v Pies at a packed MCG on a Saturday arvo doesn’t get you wet I don’t know what to tell you. This should be an absolute cracker and a possible elimination final preview. In true AFL style, it won’t be shown on free to air, so luckily we’ve got Draftstars instead!

Our mates / beautiful humans at Fantasy Insider have crunched the numbers and given us this ideal lineup for tomorrow:

My take:

RUC

Only 3 options but I actually think it’s quite tough. At 17k I feel like Grundy is way overs. He needs 136 to even begin to hit value, a mark he’s crossed only twice this year. Nank took the choccies in his last matchup against Grundy in round 6, winning the battle 131DS to 115. Collingwood gave up 130DS to Stef a week later, but since then haven’t conceded a 100+ score. This includes matchups against the likes of Gawn and Goldy. Mason Cox is your only other option at 8.4k, while he’s had a quiet month, he scored a respectable 73 from 10 touches and two goals last time against the Tigers.

Lock in? Cox

DEF

The Tiges don’t do the whole defending at rebounders thing very well. Jeremy Howe helped himself to 30 possessions / 12 marks / 131DS last time and I’m tempted to fire him up. Sam Murray returned with a 79 last week. Shaz and Maynard are other Collingwood backs that will enjoy some freedom tomorrow. Of the 3, I like Sam Murray the most. At the Tiges, Jayden Short has turned himself into a reliable fantasy option in all forms of the game. His 12.3k price is starting to worry me as he hasn’t shown much of a ceiling as yet. He’s a good play just not a value one. 

Lock in? Pay up. Howe and Shorty

FWDS

I really want to play Liam Baker today. Call it gut feel but I reckon he’ll grab this opportunity a run with it. When Jacob Townsend broke into the side late last year, he had a 16 possessions / 6 goal / 107DS game. He’s another one that will look to nail down a spot as finals approach. The Pies struggled with the pace of Dan Butler in round 6, Jack Higgins has stepped into that mid / fwd role of Butler. He can hunt the ball, Jack, he just needs to combine that with a few Snags and he’ll be pushing 85-90. At the top, Dusty and Kane Lambert lead a bunch of mid / fwd options. Have laid eyes on Dusty for the past few that 12.7k price looks in serious Danger of being made to look silly. Former member of The Killers, Jack Riewoldt, hasn’t got an obvious matchup and will smash value.

Lock in? Salary relief in Baker. Jack, or any of the mid / fwds on offer

MIDS

Both teams are pretty lax at limiting opposition midfielders. Collingwood give the 3rd and Richmond the 5th most amount of points to midfielders. The high ceilings of Sidebum, Pendles, and Phillips appeal. Dion Prestia finally cracked the a Draftstars 100 last week, at 12k that’s a great price for a man in a serious purple patch. 

Lock in? Any of the fwd / mids you missed. Higgins. Expensive Collingwood mids

My lineup

That’s it for me this week, Community. Have a super week and I hope you make the 8 in all your leagues.

Marcus

Any point in trading Crouch to Macrae?
Would leave me with 3 trades (am full premo with M9/F7)

Blueth

I'd wait til next week to make a decision on Macrae if you can afford to.
Didn't do much last week (74) and has a high BE (126).
Doesn't have many taggers on the way home, especially with Jacobs out but i'd still be cautious with an injury interrupted player.

Ja191

Would not be surprised if he goes 150+ this week but crouch should have a big one too, could wait til next week

SC_Kev7

Screams luxury trade to me, Marcus. You could probably wait if you're comfortable in the top 4/top 8.

Kevdup

Fed up with Rance!! Who would the community recommend?
I currently have Loooyd, YoYo, Simmo, Lairdy & Hurls.
Thinking in following order: Short, Brayshaw, MacDonald.
Being a Dee supporter nervous about a Dee as we have a tough run home and never fail to disappoint 🙁 !!
Unfortunately, the Tigers just look tooooo good 🙁
Cheers

Maverick_

a tough run home isn't always a bad thing kevdup. plenty of the pill down back means opportunity for a defender!
I was looking at trading webster my two options were McDonald and short.
Was leaning toward Tom for his huge ceiling. short is extremely consistent but looks like 105-110 is his ceiling.

Kevdup

Cheers for feedback Maverick.
Noticed Short and Brayshaw have higher projections than Maccas.
Short seems the safe bet. I like safe, not interested in overall, only leagues.
later

Maverick_

Short is definately safe he will bank u 90+ most weeks if not every week.
McDonald is gonna give u a 60 once every 3-4 weeks.
i got brayshaw in last week for hibberd. gotta love a defender playing midfield.
short for me if you want conistency at 30k less though. tigs are gonna step it up heading to finals

Leeds17

Its an interesting take on Mcdonald, had the one 39 but rest 74 or over,

Corey

Still have Sicily in forwardline who should I fill as my last spot up forward
Current Forwards: Heeney, R.Gray, McLean, D.Smith, Walters

KingWinter7

The Hoff

Mark Fawcett

Hoff or Tom McDonald if you have the right DPP links, can be a saviour come Finals:)

Kale

Anyone looking for a forward POD consider Gunston. His cheap and a big ceiling. He is playing Sicily’s role that he’s thrived in previously. You got to remember they played Carlton and didn’t have much opportunity and still scored an 80. Anyone else like Gunston?

BockChoy

I brought Gunston in as I shifted through the bye period. He's been a strong, reliable option.

Corey

Pick him over Westhoff?

Finnius

The hoff is the top forward this year. Much better option than a speculative pick.

Derek

he was all over the place last week. The hawks had Roughy doing some of the ruck work and Gunston was going forward.

it was only carlton, so being a defender wasn't a high scoring role. Should better for the run home

Jace

Did Gunston play down back last week? Didn't watch the game.

Derek

most of the time. when roughy was in the middle he went forward. didn't see much of the ball down that end

Leeds17

Umm didnt he play Full Forward almost all of the game? they were just looking for Breust a lot more…

Florence Maxwell

Cheers Damp

TheGreatBozza

Any trade advice? I'd love Macrae but I cant squeeze him in:

Bank – $10,000 Trades: 6

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

Here are my 3 ideas I'm toying with:

1. Richards > O'Riordan
Austin > Short / McDonald

2. Richards > O'Riordan
Savage > Lloyd

3. De Goey > Gunston / Darling / Mengola

4. Richards > O'Riordan
De Goey > Macrae

KingWinter7

1st option for mine, on field team comes before bench loophole players especially with 6 trades left

I'd also consider Oliver as more of a must have then Macrae if you come down to that option

TheGreatBozza

Thanks KW7. I think I’ll hold off on mids for now. Although with options 1 & 2 I’m getting a better on field player. It’s just with option 1 id have a better D7 for cover

Russty_

I'd go option 2 Bozza, if you drink and drive, and don't have Lloyd..you're a bloody idiot lol.
P.S no cloning players ok?..it's unfair to the rest of us!…;)

TheGreatBozza

Ended up going Savage/Austin for Lloyd/O’Riordan

Time to go all out. 4 trades left, I’ll reassess De Goat next week

Russty_

That wasn't even an option Bozza…I don't think you're allowed to do that!…yeah mate, this is the week to go all out if you have the trades.

TheGreatBozza

Haha well I thought I may as well keep Richards as an emergency since I won’t have a premo at D7 to loop. Or do you reckon having a non-playing D8 is better?

Florence Maxwell

2. Savage to Lloyd will be the biggest benefit to your onfield team. If you have 6 trades you don't have to stress too much about your bench players, hopefully you won't need to rely on them.

Stupid Coach

Looking to take your advice Patch and trade my sorry excuse for an ass off. 4 trades left. Options:

1) Savage to McDonald, H Shaw or Witherden.
2) Petracca to Menegola
3) Redman to O'Riordan and Savage to Lloyd.

Thoughts?

SC_Kev7

Swing for the fences, SC! Option 3

Stupid Coach

Thanks Kev. Was hoping not to have to use two trades but don't have enough cash to trade Savage straight to Lloyd.

KingWinter7

Savage to Lloyd ?

Finnius

Hope you did it.

Cliffy

I saw on the Captain's page earlier today everyone is pretty certain on Mitchell as a backup C in case their VC fails. Can't help but feel Banfield is not someone to easily brush off as a tagger and could hinder Mitchell slightly on Sunday (obviously I hope that doesn't happen being an owner), but food for thought?

I had Merrett last week and I was gritting my teeth until he killed it in the 4th…

Leeds17

Every chnace Ticth knocks out another good score, but no way Lyon let's him get away with what Bolton did.

r_calve

another 150 in the bank for titch cos ross wanted to tag Jaeger, that's fine by me

Cliffy

Also, thoughts on my team? There's really nothing critical to worry about atm, but could it use any tinkering before Finals start next week?

DEF: Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Laird, Hurley, Howe
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Oliver, Gaff, Beams, Coniglio, Martin, Merrett (Ahern, Sier, Philips)
RUCK: Gawn, Martin
FWD: Heeney, McLean, Smith, Walters, Westhoff, Boak (Fritsch, Ryan)

Thanks guys

dontblushbaby

Not sure why Rice got dropped, after his knock early he wasn't too bad last week, any way he was always making room this week for O'Riorden – will give me 179k and 4 trades – I want go Rocky for Macrae but I feel Rocky is going to put in a 150 game soon ,dunno

The Ranger

4 trades and 179K cash going into Finals is peachy Dbb.
Should be able to squeeze a couple of luxury trades in if ya lucky.

Cobee Bear

Spare a thought for Armitage as well. Twenty possies, a goal, 106 sc points…and omitted…

Russty_

And of course, O'Riordan would have to drop a big steamy turd this week.

Steve

One final upgrade in defence can't decide between Witherden , Andrews , Short or T-Mac, want to go someone who will score big from now on,

SC_Kev7

Reckon TMac has the best ceiling on paper, but has a tough run home. Could be a good or bad thing depending on how you see it. Short poor ceiling so no. Andrews will be eased back, so Witherden if you want a Brisbane player

Soothsayer

Could Hodges return hurt Witherdens scoring?

Ja191

austin any chance to come back this year?

Russty_

Anyone putting the VC on Buddy tonight?…I'm thinking about it, but I'm hesitant as he's been crap lately and couldn't even get a goal against the Suns.

Maverick_

hasn't had a decent score since round 1 russty. it'd take a huge set of aggots to VC him tonight.

danger into titch for me

Russty_

Yeah that's my default too Mav but I don't mind a bit of a risk sometimes haha, and Buddy has a good record against the Bombers.
I might flip a coin.

Finnius

hope you didn't do it…

Russty_

Yeah I did it…lol, what a bust but, all is not lost yet.

Maverick_

first trade is naughton -> O'Riordan tonight.
Still so undecided on my final Forward though.

Currently have: Heeney, Westhoff, Gray, McLean, D.Smith Sicily** (T.Smith Battle)

in the mix is Gunston Wingard Greene & McDonald.

any opinions community?

Russty_

Fyfe's recovering slower than expected, best case scenario is a round 22 return…on AFL Tonight just now.

Russty_

As long as you have someone on each line mate…having the best team on field is the priority now.

don

BEST F7???
Jack Riewoldt looks tempting, in good form, tigers have a soft draw to finish and plays every game early in the round so great for loopholing
Anyone else i should consider? Buddy? Darling maybe?

Russty_

Jack's doing ok…would be a good F7

The Ranger

West Coast have nice late games.

Jochem

Last minute: Menegola (POD) or Gray (Copycat) for Guelfi? I am number 40 overall and plan to put Fritsch on bench. Gray would help me keep up with the top 40 (but not move up?), Menegola might be POD as everyone else has Gray? Uhm Predicament 🙂

Russty_

You're ranked 40th so you should know what to do, maybe a real pod like Hawkins?

Jochem

If I would extrapolate everyones scores Hawkins would be automatic choice, but he's key position and can easily deliver a turd like a 40 against Richmond in RD20 or Hawks in RD21

Russty_

As could Menegola, who hasn't exactly set the world on fire lately, your call, you must've been doing something right to be ranked 40th..good luck.

Leeds17

Hawkins is getting up the ground a lot more than in previous seasons, he's fitter & probably the most confident in his ability that he's ever been, big risk but hey at 40 you've got to have a go at winning the comp.

Blueth

I like Menegola.
really like the cats run home.
Ports is tougher.
But not sure i should be giving you advice mate, i'm 4500

Yeahnah

Go for glory mate, Menegola

Cobee Bear

Gray, just because he seems to be a magnet for SC points even when he isn't touching the footy

oliverfisher

Four trades left and 222k in the bank. I have two main issues. Firstly, still holding Fyfe, and the second is M Robinson. Should I look at upgrading Robinson or should I use a trade to get rid of Fyfe? I currently have Shuey covering for Fyfe, so I could hold unless I get another injury in the middle. If I do trade out Robinson, who is a good reliable option (rest of forward line is Heeney, McLean, Buddy, Gray, Billings, and JJK)? I was thinking either Westhoff or Wallis as they have mid swing, so even if I get a short term mid injury, I can bring JJK or Billing on up forward and swing them into the middle.

Cobee Bear

Hoff is a good option. So is Wingard. You could wait a week and you'd have one trade a week up your sleeve for finals. Also, you could see how Greene goes in his 3rd game back

oliverfisher

I was thinking of waiting a week, but only issue is Robinson has a relatively high breakeven, and it looks like JJK might be a late out, which would mean fielding Robinson. Though i'm sitting 3rd in my league and play 18th, so I would probably still get over the line even if Robinson stinks it up.

HumanBob

If Jarrad Waite had have 'tripped' Heeney like smith did he'd get 4-weeks. I bet the bomber gets off

Blueth

yeah but Jarrad Waite would deserve it

Sc_Wow

Waite is a flog

That George Hewett fella isn't so flash at tagging Zach

Finals

Hewett would be my f6 if thespians didn't have him tagging. Can play.
Struggling tonight but has shut down some guns this year, really messing up my premo scores regularly.

The Ranger

Boody thespians

Russty_

Theatre people have no idea about Footy 🙂

Defying_Madness

Smith is the only player in my team I have no cover for apart from rucks and he goes and trips someone

AFC1886

Should hopefully get away with just a fine fingers crossed

Trades

Swans could be out of the 8 if they lose

Russty_

Buddy will be out of my side if he doesn't hit his projected score…bloody overpaid spud.

Trades

Yep same, Westhoff or Wallis?

Russty_

Wallis could be a good one, I've already got Westy, but if you don't probably Westy.

Rick Grimes

I think we can agree that Buddy is on the never again list. Was weighing up playing Ahern over him. Kind of sums up ehere he is these days.

Russty_

Are you really leaving the show next season Rick?…wtf man?

Rick Grimes

The show has been shithouse for a couple of years, let's be honest.

Russty_

I thought it was gonna end last season actually.

Cobee Bear

Friday night and my weekend is cooked already.

BadgerHoney7

bit ridiculous how they don't value spoils or one percenters in this game – hurley imo has played great tonight and locked up buddy but wouldn't really show it on the points. guess its a bit biased because I have him but hes clearly had a great night tonight – not heaps of the ball but impacts in the air

The Ranger

Just not playing an SC friendly game Badger, annoying but if they all played SC friendly games we'd be spoiled for choice and SC would be rubbish.

BadgerHoney7

yeah agree, haha annoys you when you're players play terrific and don't get awarded – hopefully he gets scaled up

BrownlowBoy

They do value them both in supercoach…

Wedge

Yeah I'd say the evidence that they're valued is he scored 38 in DT and 77 in SC.

BlueBaggerJosh

Swans will not make the 8, one look at their draw makes that obvious

Defying_Madness

I am thinking the top 8 will be the following
Richmond, Eagles, Pies, Giants, Hawks, Cats, Power, Dees

BlueBaggerJosh

I think the Roos will make it over Melbourne

Steeeve

Great game by Hurley. Not reflected in his score. Will he be scaled up?

Defying_Madness

Yeah he was amazing deserves more points

Marty

Hurley doesn't seem to be supercoach relevant this year. Gun game but still scores below what a premo defender should score. 102 average last year. A defender who I won't be choosing in 2019

Russty_

Yeah agree Marty, Harris Andrews will be in my starting squad next year.

TOPHAWK1

At least Hurles did his job and beat/ outscored Buddy. Don't have Buddy. Thank fark for that! All Buddy owners are screwed.

Russty_

Not screwed yet Hawk, still have a few trades lol.

Richard

Bye Bye Longmire the time has come to move on.Your game plan is boring and outdated

Russty_

Nowhere near attacking enough…what's the point of defending all the time when you're 30 points behind?

DANGER1VDUSTY22

Franklin can hardly move out there, he is cooked : 94, 73, 60, 109, 61, 50.
Who is trading him next week? (if you have any trades left)
Franklin is 420k (BE 88) and scored 50, what is his price for next week?

Russty_

Probably about 400 and yeah I'll trade him if nothing else happens this week.

Blueth

yep gone.
Tmac or Hawkins

Kanga

2 trades left so it will be tight but he is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNE! (barring unforeseen cataclysmic injuries)
Really should have had him as an emergency with Ahern as cover.

BadgerHoney7

ridiculous how hurley didn't get scaled up imo but even funnier that his fantasy score was 38 !!!

Jeff

Who to get for final forward spot out of Westhoff, Menagola or Mundy???

Cobee Bear

Hoff or Menegola

Blueth

Menegola

Murray

McRae or josh kelly

Dermin8r

I would go Kelly

Derek

One of my opponents in a do or die match had both Hurley and Buddy. Happy they nullified each other.

He also had Lloyd and at half time I thought 150+ he slowed down as the Swans slowed down.

Bombers vs Hawks next week. Looking forward to that one

Derek

I have McGrath at D6, meant to move him on weeks ago but injury etc he is still there. On bench last night and scored 58. I can put either JSmith or Herron on field or do I take McGrath’s 58 by leaving O’Connor on field?

Blueth

Herron and smith could both put out 35's.
I'd take the 58

Valens_FC

I see you’re in Pieman’s cash league Derek and that one really is do or die with you both on same percentage. If that one is a priority I’d be tempted to roll the dice and see if Smith can beat your opponent’s Hurley score. Could be tough for you to get past him otherwise. Wouldn’t field Heron.

Derek

That game is do or die, plus need at least one other result to go my way.

I should have bit bullet This week and got Lloyd but had to do it with 2 trades, only have 4 left so decided to see how he goes. He should have done better, always around the ball but it doesn’t come his way.

Other option, use 2 trades and turn Ahern into a defender (via O’Connor). $478k to spend?

Valens_FC

Looking at that match up I’d go for it because he’s out numbering you on unique premos and the 77 for Hurley represents a chance. No certainty that you can find someone to outscore Hurley of course but the door is ajar.
Also depends what’s important for you from here. This would be a more League driven move where you’ll need a bit of luck taking 2 trades into the last 4 weeks, but there’ll be plenty in that situation or worse.

Henry

Any mathematicians wanna work out what Jake Lloyd's price drop will be? I was $5,500 short of him this week from Sicily

Corza

Wingard, Westhoff or Gunston for Final F6 spot

Dermin8r

Gunston has a sweet run home

Russty_

I like Wingard Corza, or maybe Wallis.

Hawks

Shuey will not play tomorrow, just a word of warning to those that have him.

Russty_

Hey Hawks, what's your source on this news?

Ahmad rubas

Wow him and Kennedy out for west coast good source you have there mate

Russty_

Just saw it on MMM, Kennedy with general soreness and Shuey for personal reasons. Waterman and Petruccelle come in.

Hawks

Yeah, Rusty I heard it on MMM this morning with Joey Del Santo's program

Ahmad rubas

Annoying that petrucelle is in as I was hoping to bring him in as a floating donut but seems like his JS isn't as bad as i thought. I guess the positive is he is in the team before I traded him in

Soothsayer

I’m wondering if the bad bad Toby Greene could go big after a couple of games back! Considering Ahern to Toby.

Russty_

He's on a big..-2 half way through the second quarter but he just took a contested mark.

Audrey Horne

Howe down and likely out for the game. And just like that my season could over. Game of luck.

Audrey Horne

Stef Martin pretty much ensuring my season is done.

Finnius

Same. God I hate supercoach.

Ahmad rubas

goldy to grundy may not be a luxury move and something i have to consider for finals. this is just an overreaction as goldy hasnt even played a ruckless west coast yet but grundy is going ballistic

Russty_

He's a ripper ain't he?…that goal he kicked was unbelievable

Defying_Madness

Anyone go with Hawkins?

BrownlowBoy

Got him in draft, didn't need him in normal.

Blueth

thought about it but buddy usually rips the bombers apart so stayed with the bud.
Not happy

Howe Good?

Poor Howe owners out there. Was always injury prone even if it was a knee to the head. Should have known better.

Russty_

Played almost every game since 2012..how is he injury prone?

Audrey Horne

Not only do I have Howe my opponent has Heath fing Shaw.

Finnius

Exactly the same mate. Went from an easy win to staring down the barrel of missing finals.

Audrey Horne

Last roll of the dice. Both have Mitchell captain so will change to Gawn and hope for something huge.

TOPHAWK1

Howe will soil my score this week. But hopefully will still make 5 major league finals with 3 trades and de Goey on the bench. Still a bit of bark left in me yet! Bring on finals folks!

Corey

Trade In Hawkins next week or trade in either Wingard, Westhoff or Gunston?

BlueBaggerJosh

tomahawk

Hawks

What score do you need from a VC, when you have the C on Tom Mitchell?

Blueth

130

BlueBaggerJosh

Cripps or Gawn for the VC?

Cobee Bear

Just changed to Cripps so help me

Russty_

Good call Cobee!

Cobee Bear

Very rarely do last minute decisions pay off!

Defying_Madness

Uh oh touk miller is tagging my captain

Defying_Madness

Nevermind Cripps is a bloody gun

Finnius

Had Grundy into Cripps at the start of the week. After reading all the comments, 5 or 6 different articles, I decided to go Danger into Titch.

Not blaming anyone, but the moral is clear. Sometimes you just have to back your gut.

Finnius

who'd you captain this week mate?
