We’re here folks, week 1 of SuperCoach finals action!

Now has never been a better time to appease the SuperCoach Gods. An early injury to a premium can derail your week completely, if it happens this week and you’re in an elimination final it’s curtains for you in 2018. So do whatever it takes; goat sacrifice, rum can pyramid, anything!

Patch making his offer to the SuperCoach Gods during the week

Round 20 is shaping up to be pretty special before the ball has even been bounced. We’ll be seeing Swan Alex Johnson against the Pies on Saturday night after 2,136 days on the sidelines. Nathan Freeman will make his debut 1,718 days after being drafted, and after returns of 25 and 32 possessions in Adelaide’s SANFL side, Brodie Smith makes his return just 11 months after rupturing his ACL.

SuperCoach finals fever has hit Jock Reynolds HQ this week. Patch returns from his hiatus with no explanation on his whereabouts over the past few weeks, joining Lek for some shouty shenanigans and more finals advice than you can poke a SuperCoach sized stick at. Barron went a bit hard at 3am kebab during the week and is sick as a dog, so Damo has stepped up to provide us with an Around the Grounds and his usual cheat sheet. Captains this week are crucial, get the lowdown with Patch right here.

  THE NEWS

Connor Menadue gets another chance to impress tonight as the Tigers take on Geelong at G. Dion Prestia is out with a busted rib. At Geelong, man mountain Ryan Abbott (RUC – 123.9k) will make his debut and Jamaine Jones has been recalled. Tom Stewart and Quinton Narkle miss out.

Essendon have made no changes for their clash against Hawthorn on Saturday. The Hawks are swapping Jono O’Rourke with Harry Morrison. Brandon Starcevich (MID / FWD – 126.3k) will debut in one of two changes at the Lions. Jarrad Waite replaces the injured Shaun ‘Once a burnman, always a burnman’ Higgins for North. Port Adelaide are another not to make any changes, while Adelaide have gone BANG for the Showdown, making four changes. Tom Doedee may still be floating around on your SuperCoach bench, he’s amongst the ins. Mitch McGovern and Paul Seedsman have succumbed to injury. Some good and bad news at the Saints this week, Jimmy Webster and Hunter Clark are big SuperCoach ins. David Armitage returns after mysteriously being dropped. On the flip side, Shane Savage has hurt himself. The Dogs have made three changes themselves, but they are fringe players that aren’t going to hurt you. The Swans have lost Colin O’Riordan and Heath Grundy, amongst others, for the game, but have recalled Kieran Jack and Jarrad McVeigh for their do or die clash against the Pies. At Collingwood, Jack Madgen (MID – 102.4k) will debut and Brayden Sier returns, replacing the injured Matt Scharenberg and Jeremy Howe.

On Sunday, there’s your usual musical chairs galore. Carlton have added some fringe players without any confirmed outs as yet. The Giants have lost Tim Taranto and Dylan Shiel to injury. Jezza Cameron and Matt de Boer are two of the seven inclusions to be named on the field. Aiden Bonar (FWD / MID – 157.8k) has been named on an extended bench again. The Eagles have named Luke Shuey in one of four additions to their squad without a confirmed out as yet. Of Fremantle’s five ins, only Matt Taberner has been named on field. Cam Sutcliffe is out with injury. For the final game of the week, Aaron vandenBerg will make his season debut (not rookie priced, sorry) the the Dees. Jake Melksham is their only out at this stage. Gold Coast have the unenviable task of trying to replace the injured trio of David Swallow, Rory Thompson, and Steven May this week. They’ve added a bunch of new names, will Michael Barlow finally get a chance to show his worth?

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

We would’ve been wetting ourselves if Jarrod Lienert arrived as a downgrade option two months ago. As has been the case for the last few weeks, the loose trade rule of waiting until rookies are on the bubble are thrown out the window. Same with high breakevens, if you want someone then get them in.

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

-99 – Jarrod Lienert* (DEF)

Will Walker (52 last week – MID)

Jordan Dawson (53 last week – MID / FWD)

Liam Baker (45 last week – FWD)

Kane Farrell (48 last week (DEF / MID)

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

198 – Harris Andrews

159 – The Bearded One

158 – Jack Redden

155 – Cal Ward

152 – Jelwood

149 – Luke Ryan

147 – Stiffy Martin

147 – Jack Crisp

143 – Sloanedawg

140 – Andrew Gaff

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

 

Well our forward line is collectively all a bit shit at the moment. In my studies of the French language, a collective group of shit is called a ~le Michael Walters~.

In the latest episode of “Chris Scott doing weird shit”, he has not been content with using the best mid in game up forward, so he sent his other midfield bull and renowned ducking enthusiast, Joel Selwood, back to defence.

This leads me to Sam Menegola. He has had a bit of dry patch over the past fortnight, but has carved himself a nice little reputation as a fast finisher (in a good way…). He averaged 105.5 over the last 4 games of his debut season and topped that in 2017 with an average of 116.3. He faces Freo and Gold Coast, both at GMHBASLFJHGLSHQI+ stadium in the final two rounds.

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Showdown time! Adelaide square off against Port in showdown XLV (45 guys. I know, I know, they didn’t even try tp teach us roman numerals in school!). The gurus at Fantasy Insider, who are not only bottomless pool of knowledge but extremely lovely people, have given us this ideal lineup for tomorrow night.

My take:

MIDS

Starting with the mids this week. Adelaide give up the second most points to opposition midfielders this year. Riley Knight has tagged Joel Selwood and Dayne Beams in recent weeks with little success, Selwood had 29 and Beams 26, in both cases their scores were kept low by giving away free kicks.

With that in mind, I’m all over Tom Rockliff tonight. He dominated his first Showdown, helping himself to 31 possessions and 9 tackles (127DS). He also liked playing against Adelaide while at Brisbane, averaging a lazy 149DS in his previous 3 games. Ollie WInes has 4 tons from his past 5 against the Crows. Travis Boak has been extremely consistent of late, scoring between 84-94 since round 12.

At the Crows, Rory Sloane has scores of 124 and 139 in his last two Showdown’s, he looks a tasty prospect at 12.2k. Matt Crouch has 3 scores over 120 in his past 5 games and 3 over 110 in his past 4 against Port. Hugh Greenwood may go overlooked with so many midfield studs available, he backed up his 104 two weeks ago with a 109 last week, his first two Showdown’s have seen scores of 105 and 97.   

RUCK

Port have given up 95.4DS to rucks this year. Sam Jacobs has had a few down weeks and was limited to 53DS in the Showdown earlier in the year where he struggled with back soreness, but still had 32 hitouts in that match. In the 5 Showdown’s prior to this year, he was averaging 101.8. At 10.7k we could see a 9-10x value game from Sauce

FWD

Robbie Gray’s last 5 Showdown’s? 104, 112, 90, 112, 127. Also available as a mid, he’s priced at 11.3k. Tom Lynch is another one who likes this matchup, averaging 103.6 over over the same 5 game span. Wayne Milera has been on a bit of a tear lately, also available as a mid but plays as a defender, he scored his first Draftstars 100 since round 5 and has a a 3 game average of 91. Kane Farrell was just short of a 10x value game last week. Still available at 5k and also with defender status on Draftstars, he’s a good way to get some salary relief on a slate that doesn’t have many reliable cheapies.

DEF

All eyes will be on Brodie Smith in this game. Draftstars have finally come to their senses and are not pricing experienced returning players at 5k. That said, you can be fairly confident in Brodie exceeding value at 8.6k. Jarrod Lienert is priced at 8.4k has had a #blessed start to fantasy life with returns of 72 and 79.

A word of caution on Rory Laird (that will probably blow up in my face). Port are the number 1 team in restricting medium defenders this year (84.2DS a game).

My lineup:

Finals! Woo! It’s a big week in SuperCoach land. May all our premo’s refrain from shitting the bed this week. Good luck, Community!

Do I loophole Joel Selwood or Dustin Martin tonight (Shuey M9)? Opponent has Martin so could get one up if he goes poorly and I can loophole, but does average 118 in last 3 v Cats, Selwood could go big or bust as well…

    SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2018 at 10:40

    Selwood. His scores have plummeted being used in the backline

      Andrew · 03/08/2018 at 16:57

      Going to go risky I think and leave Selwood on field, wet conditions might suit him!

        Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 20:57

        No wet conditions so far and Selwood is killing it…70+ before half time!…good call Andrew.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:24

    I'm looping Selwood

      Steeeve · 03/08/2018 at 22:28

      Probably take Joel's score I imagine

Maverick · 03/08/2018 at 10:15

Thanks Kev. Playing in a work SC elimination after scraping in with my crappy team but I’ve learnt a lot this year thanks to the Jock forum. Still not sure about the E loophole.
No trades left and have Howe. Is what I propose correct based on what Derek (Very helpful person) wrote earlier?
Put Howe on the field, with Lynch, playing Saturday night against Saints as my E. If Lynch flops, swap Howe with Duman playing WCE on Sunday pm. but Dogs and Magpies play at the same time – 7.25pm Saturday night.
If I can’t do the loophole, who do I put on the field. Lynch vs Saints or Duman vs WCE?
Expert advice would be appreciated.

    SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2018 at 10:47

    G'day Mav. Your last bit is correct. You won't be able to move Howe off your field on Sunday as he'll be locked in.

    Play the man in form. So, Duman

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 17:39

    Duman got omitted unfortunately, and Giro.

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 17:54

    can the real maverick please stand up…

    unlucky about duman mav.
    lock in lynch

Noah · 03/08/2018 at 10:49

Macrae or Cripps for C. ( Titch is VC)…

Thanks

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:10

    It's a flip a coin choice Noah but I'd go Cripps.
    Steele will go to Macrae.

      Noah · 03/08/2018 at 15:06

      My opponent doesn't have Macrae and we score similar points. Does that change anything?

    KingWinter7 · 03/08/2018 at 13:42

    Cripps

r_calve · 03/08/2018 at 10:57

I got 582k, should i swing ahern forwards and loop him with McLean, in the process getting a m9 to replace Higgins for the week and using Gibbs as my m9 every other week or use ahern in the mids and get a f7

I could get a forward such as the Hoff, breust or tomahawk or a mid like josh kelly or Dayne beams,

which option should I go for and which player to bring in

    SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2018 at 14:05

    Would rather an extra high scoring mid, calve.

Yeahnah · 03/08/2018 at 11:37

Got 2 trades left, only playing for my one cash league where my opponent has Howe as well, he’s using Lynch to cover
1. Howe to Lloyd in 2 trades
2. Howe to McGovern/McDonald/Hurn in 1 trade
3. Or have Richards fill in for one week
4. Or trade Richards to Lienert in 1 trade

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:12

    If it's an Elimination then I'd go Lloyd. If not I'd go McG.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:25

    Llooooooooooyd

    Cobee Bear · 03/08/2018 at 18:28

    McDonald

KingWinter7 · 03/08/2018 at 11:43

Best defender for 372.1k??????

Unfortunately I have to use my last trade on Hibberd this week to avoid a donut as Rice wasn't named and I'm 3k off Rance lol

Atm it's Tom Langdon

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:15

    Can't see anything better for that price King.

      KingWinter7 · 03/08/2018 at 13:42

      Yeah neither, thanks mate

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:27

    Ryan Clarke, averages 111 against Brisbane, 50 against Bulldowgs and 92 against Adelaide. 85, 43, 102 and 106 in the last 4 weeks

Max · 03/08/2018 at 12:05

Am I mad for thinking about going Buddy to Brown?

Easy run home, plus Buddy is injured.

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:16

    Nah not mad at all.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:27

    Not mad

    Locked and Loaded · 04/08/2018 at 22:37

    I hope you did not do this! Wish I saw it earlier coaches generally won’t say their player has been injured unless they’re beating full health! Hope you kept him

      Locked and Loaded · 04/08/2018 at 22:37

      Nearing**

Big M · 03/08/2018 at 12:10

Who is a better bet and to play on the field,
Franklin who's been quite ordinary , or
Ahern who's named on the ball

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:18

    Ahern is probably safer for an 80-90 but Buddy can go big at any time.
    Depends how risky you want to be.

    Ja191 · 03/08/2018 at 16:07

    In a similar position with Walters or ahern. Going ahern myself, playing Brisbane should hopefully score well

      Jace · 03/08/2018 at 17:15

      lot's of forwards named for freo,Walters back in the midfield this week?

    Flaccid Jaff · 03/08/2018 at 18:43

    I'm thinking put the emergency on Ahern and if he scores 85+ throw buddy off for a non playing someone, if you have one

thisisScoman · 03/08/2018 at 12:52

Savage done for the year, so I have to pull the trigger on a trade. Capped at $451,800 unless I burn two remaining trades.
Tom McDonald the obvious choice, but leaves not much cash for emergencies.
Jimmy Webster a bit riskier but leaves a bit more cash.
Brodie Smith for braver coaches than I.

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 13:19

    I like the Tmac pick. Has a nice high ceiling.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:27

    Tmac

Rucks · 03/08/2018 at 13:01

Grundy going to score big against Sinclair?
Or back in Nank to score big against Stanley/Abbott?

    Moppett · 03/08/2018 at 13:48

    Nank. You are kidding. Surely you have Gawn

Franklin - Guns · 03/08/2018 at 13:04

Fritisch needs to be traded but to whom…..

Current Fwd – Heeney, R Gray, Westhoff, D Smith & McLean.

Options – R.Stanley, Menegola or who else?

Which Fwd's best option.

    SC_Kev7 · 03/08/2018 at 14:10

    Of the two mentioned, Menegola. Considered Dunkley? Role change and is playing more midfield now

    L G · 03/08/2018 at 18:00

    I’m in the same boat, heading towards Menegola. Is Gresham worth a look ?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:20

    Stanley's got a calf issue, could still be a late out. Menegola or Dunkley as Kev said look good.

    Cobee Bear · 03/08/2018 at 18:34

    I'm gritting my teeth and going Menegola. One trade left…

    Franklin - Guns · 03/08/2018 at 19:16

    Stanley a late out makes the decision easy. Not convinced on Menegola but he generally finishes strong so fingers crossed.

Limesoda · 03/08/2018 at 14:02

Playing for rank..
If I dont trade howe, I have to field mihocek…
3 Trades left, do i just upgrade howe to a McGovern, or hold and field Mihocek?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 16:14

    I'm in the same boat, if it's best rank you're after probably best to get McGov

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:28

    Trade

FearTheBeard · 03/08/2018 at 14:14

Community. I'm stumped. Elimination final.

I have to trade Savage. Have 481.3k

I already have Lloyd, Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Tmac.

Who is the next best? Hurn, Crisp, Hurley, Webster, McGovern, Ryan, Brayshaw?

I have absolutely no clue but need the win 😐

    Noah · 03/08/2018 at 14:38

    Hurn is quite consistent.

      FearTheBeard · 03/08/2018 at 15:05

      Thanks for taking the time Noah.

      Anyone else able to help close a decision? I honestly have NO IDEA lol.

        Brayshaw · 03/08/2018 at 15:40

        BrayshawBrayshawhas been solid in my side.

          Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 16:26

          I like McGovern FTB

        Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 16:15

        I reckon McGov or Hurn Beard..good luck mate.

          FearTheBeard · 03/08/2018 at 16:37

          Thanks Russty & Maverick.

          May I ask why McGovern has such a low and then such a high? Change of roll? Injury?

          I am leaning towards Hurn?

            Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 17:02

            I think they throw him fwd and back as needed…yeah Hurn's probably a bit more consistent, but McGov is in great form last 3

    Flaccid Jaff · 03/08/2018 at 18:47

    McGovern can go large and should do well this week. But he's then up against Dixon and TMac so will sit on them on not score great I'm thinking.
    I'd go Brayshaw. Into midfield and they will be going nuts to lock down that top 8 against some poorer sides

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:54

    Brayshaw's 490k……I reckon Hurn or Gov.

The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 14:23

3 trades left and a mix of Elimination and Qualifying finals this week. In with a fair shout in all of them but it will be tight.
Just Ahern as M9/F7 at the moment. Got no injury outs
If I trade twice and get TMac I can end up with swingsets between all lines except the ruck but only one trade left.
This week I'd be looping in def, mid and fwd line.
Do I do it or hold?

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:29

    Hold

      The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 18:30

      Phew. Glad someone said that. I was panicking.

Liam · 03/08/2018 at 14:34

Community… 4 elims, slipped from top 4 due to one L Franklin in all.
I have two trades left.
I have Sicilly on my bench because Tom Cole has been producing down back,

Should I go Sicilly to McGovern giving me 30k in the bank and try someone like Tom McDonald for Buddy.
Or
Go a downgrade down back from Sicilly to a rookie, and use that coin to get Josh Kelly.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:29

    a) will net you more points imo

dontblushbaby · 03/08/2018 at 14:53

Does anyone know from the West if L.Ryan will get picked ? I don’t want to muck my loop iif he does

    Ryan · 03/08/2018 at 15:41

    Oooooo good question.

    Jace · 03/08/2018 at 17:22

    He's been selected to play

Stupid Coach · 03/08/2018 at 15:23

No finals action but still have 3 trades to burn. Looking to use only one this week. Only have 20k in the bank. Options:

1) Ryan to H Shaw – have Hurley, Yeo, Hurn, T Mac and Laird.
2) Nank to Witts or
3) Buddy to a forward under $425k – at this stage looking like Walters
4) Ryan to Leinert and Buddy to a better forward. Means Leinert or Lynch (WB) on the field.

Any advice much appreciated.

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:29

    Ryan to Shaw

Skinna · 03/08/2018 at 15:25

G'day Community, any suggestions on my team would be greatly appreciated!

DEF: Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Crisp, Hurley, Lloyd (Austin, Heron)
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Danger, Oliver, Kelly, Neale, Coniglio, Dusty (Phillips, Ahern, Giro)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)
FWD: Smith, Heeney, McLean, Gray, Westhoff, Darling (Fritsch, Powell)

Still have 5 trades left and 38k.

Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 16:06

2 trades left and 220k

DEF: yeo, simpson, laird, hurley, webster, brayshaw (O'Riordan Taylor)

MID: danger, Titch, dusty, oliver, beams, E.Curnow, rockliff, cognilio (ahern Powell E.Phillips)

RUCK: gawn Goldy (olango)

FWD: westhoff, gray, heeney, McDonald, McLean, D.Smith (Battle T.Smith)

after looking at it for the past hour i like:

T.Smith > K.Farrell via swinging Powell fwd and creates a swing with ahern now and then grabbing K.Farrell (mid/def) creates a swing with brayshaw also! 1 trade creating a mid/def swing & a mid/fwd swing.

Rockliff > Cripps

any advice appreciated feel free to throw other options out there 🙂

    Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 18:30

    Webster to Llooooooooooooooyd

      Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:33

      webster to lloyd over rocky to cripps??

      bold move lek crippsy is in blistering form!

        Lekdog · 03/08/2018 at 19:07

        Well a) I din't read properly and b) Webster to Lloyd nets more points overall I think

Socceroo · 03/08/2018 at 16:42

Keep your trades for emergencies or at least for next week. What happens if you lose a ruck?

Cliffy · 03/08/2018 at 17:02

This may sound unorthodox, but would it be a good idea for me to loop Dusty tonight with Ahern, just in case he pulls out another downer? If he scores around 80 odd or so I'll probably still take the score, what do we think anyway?

Cheers

    Cliffy · 03/08/2018 at 17:03

    The risk with this is that a late out after Ahern and Sier's matches happens in my Mids and then I'm screwed lol.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 17:09

    Hi Cliffy I reckon Dusty will ramp it up leading into the finals and hopefully pump out some big ones, I say that cause I'm stuck with him too lol.
    I'd be wary of loopholing at this time of year, like you said, if there's an out..you cop a big 0

      Cliffy · 03/08/2018 at 17:22

      Hello again Russty, good to hear from you mate.

      Yeah, you are right, an alright score from a premo onfield definitely sounds a lot better than an big jammed-filled donut if it comes out of nowhere on a Sunday…

TheGreatBozza · 03/08/2018 at 17:31

Any suggestions community? 4 trades, 40k

D – Lloyd, Laird, Crisp, Simpson, Yeo, Howe (Austin, O’Riordan)
M – Titch, Danger, Beams, Pendles, Cripps, Kelly, Cogs, Dusty (Giro, Dawson, De Goey)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
F – Westhoff, Gray, D.Smith, Heeney, McLean, Walters (Ahern, Smith)

Thinking of looping Dusty and if he goes poorly, drop Howe to Webster to go De Goey up Macrae

If Dusty kills it, Howe to Shaw/McDonald and look to move De Goey to a premo FWD

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 17:51

    howe obviously has to go being injured and no bench cover.
    i think howe -> McDonald.
    Don't trust websters groin one bit he's had time off twice in a month for it.

    I really like ya team after that move.
    if you were set on a 2nd trade maybe cogs to macrae?
    go howe -> shaw if this is the way to get macrae.
    but thats just luxury and got an itchy trade finger boz

      TheGreatBozza · 03/08/2018 at 18:13

      Cheers Maverick. I’ll definitely hold fire tonight, see how Dusty goes

Moosehead · 03/08/2018 at 18:02

Anyone worried about VC the mighty Titch. Championship data has him scoring 150 SC points. The Bombers will definitely tag him, or try to anyway with McGrath or play man to man with Zerrett which would be great to watch tomorrow at the MCG. I’d like to VC Danger but his dopey coach puts him in the fwd line in the last quarter = 130 instead of 150 points. So, Grundy into Gawn for me. Thoughts anyone?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:18

    They tried to tag him last week too Moose, he has a way of running the legs off guys lol, I'm still VC'ing him.

      Cobee Bear · 03/08/2018 at 18:37

      I think, like Cripps, it can sometimes just compound the number of contested possessions he racks up

      Moosehead · 03/08/2018 at 19:54

      Thanks Russty. You seem to know what you are writing about.

        Cheers mate, I wouldn't say that..haha, at least it's only the VC..so double chance if he fails, just thinking many taggers this year have tried and failed.

    Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 23:59

    Do the bombers have a tagger, I mean a real one ? Nuh…

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2018 at 18:16

    Good luck fellas been a hell of a year NDD

      The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 19:21

      Got you in the Mag 7 Neil, good luck mate

Rucks · 03/08/2018 at 18:30

Does Nank get most of his points from HO to advantage?

    Connor · 03/08/2018 at 18:36

    NO

LOUT · 03/08/2018 at 18:31

Rhys Stanley late out. Jackson thurlow in

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:34

    my draft ruckman … argh!
    glad i read this though! thanks LOUT

      The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 19:22

      Hope no-one brought him in…Fin?!

        Finnius · 03/08/2018 at 20:03

        checked to see if he was a late out and reversed my trades.

    Kane · 03/08/2018 at 22:01

    What happened to Stanley?

      Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 22:10

      He's got a sore calf Kane.

        Kane · 03/08/2018 at 22:31

        I brought him in last week as a pod. Spewing.. I know it's early days, but any word on return?

          Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 22:34

          No idea yet..you'll have to keep an eye on his medical report next week mate.

Trades · 03/08/2018 at 18:39

Loophole Tuohy for tonight or keep him on field with confidence?

Doc · 03/08/2018 at 18:40

Buddy to Menegola, good trade or bad trade?

    DaisyCutter · 03/08/2018 at 18:47

    Good trade considering Buddy’s injuries/form drop

DaisyCutter · 03/08/2018 at 18:45

Guelfi – Heeney/Menegola?
Jelwood – MCrouch?

    Finnius · 03/08/2018 at 20:11

    heeney and hold

    Defying_Madness · 03/08/2018 at 20:57

Tim · 03/08/2018 at 18:47

Last fwd spot:

T Mac or Wingard?

    Finnius · 03/08/2018 at 20:10

    wingard

    Trades · 03/08/2018 at 23:13

    McDonald for this week

Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 18:48

Need some help guys:) Do I swing McDonald forward and play him over Hogan and have Hogan and Ahern on the bench and then play Webster on the field? Few options to go with and not trusting Hogan too much, but then again, will he score more than Webster? Too many decisions!!! AAggghhhh….. Want to get into the top 50 this week and this is make or break IMO

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

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 18:51

    Hey Mark, I'd just loop Ahern with Hogan…Keefe won't play he's like a slow motion Mummy. Good luck mate!

      Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 18:55

      you think Ahern will score more than Webster? Was thinking of playing Webster in the backline with McDonald in the forward spot with Ahern on the bench, but guess that would leave me with no cover….

        Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:26

        Hey Mark, I think Ahern could..and who knows how long Webster will last?..could break down during the game with his groin.
        Your call bud…I don't trust Hogan either and will be looping him with Ahern.

          Mark Fawcett · 04/08/2018 at 15:15

          haha Russty, Ahern is looking like crap at this point, think I might need to take Hogan's score. Couldn't be any worse then what Ahern's looking at:) thank's again for pointing out loopholing:)

            Russty_ · 04/08/2018 at 15:21

            Yeah not looking good Mark!…you could still swing T-Mac fwd to take Hogan's spot and play Webster? Then Hogan will probably get 120 lol

              Mark Fawcett · 06/08/2018 at 14:56

              lol, Hogan did go for the 120 mate:) No complaints here:)

      Mark Fawcett · 04/08/2018 at 09:00

      lol, was just looking at the loopholing option, didn't even stop and think that fully through, but yeah, you're right:) Cheers mate:)

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 19:17

    Dees are playing a very weak GC, you'd have to think they'll kick a decent score.

Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 18:49

Stanley is a late out … go Nank.. holding him 1 more week..

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2018 at 18:55

    Just brought in abbott in draftstars

    How is this for fwd line selection tonight?

    Danger, ablett, dusty!
    SC take note for 2019.
    🙂

Maverick_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:03

webster too Lloyd

or

Rocky to Cripps

    Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 19:09

    Gee that’s tough… I’d look at who you think will have the greater difference in score and fly with that…

      Mark Fawcett · 03/08/2018 at 19:13

      exactly what I was going to say. Cripps I think….just!!!

    The Ranger · 03/08/2018 at 19:14

    Cripps.

    Ned · 04/08/2018 at 13:11

    Webster to Lloyd for me. Rocky the potential to go 110+
    Webster the potential to re injure that groin!
    Lloyd and crippss will most likely score much the same over the Nxt 3

    Maverick_ · 04/08/2018 at 13:40

    appreciate the feedback guys 🙂
    but anyone else got some advice … im still on the fence haha
    leaning toward LLoyd fofr webster though.
    think the most points are gained there

    Cobee Bear · 04/08/2018 at 14:19

    I'm with Ned

Flaccid Jaff · 03/08/2018 at 19:07

Jackson Trengove (WBD)?

To get TMac for Savage to avoid a 0, I need a fwd under $376k down from buddy. He was moved into ruck last week with Boyd going down and scored 156, will probably stay as primary ruck. Would be great knock someone out of finals with a big tonne from Jackson Trengove.

Other options are Robinson, Caddy, Parfitt, Neal-Bullen or Jack Higgins

AFC1886 · 03/08/2018 at 19:11

Best defender under $450k?
1k off TMac

    Doc · 03/08/2018 at 19:36

    Probably Shaw, Touhy and Rance

Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 19:14

Good luck to The Rat Pack’ers.. I’m up against Shake n Bake this week …
And NDD vs Russty will be a ding dong battle… good luck fellas..

    I have Derek in Losers finals in rat pack….will get smashed.
    I'm up against Shake in a couple of losers finals also…probs get smashed.
    Might just get smashed an watch my cats get smashed!

      Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:43

      Lol, whole lotta smashin goin on!…get smashed and watch the Tigers get smashed mate haha

      Derek · 03/08/2018 at 21:01

      I’m still sulking about last week. Didn’t take McGrath’s 58 and put JSmith on field for 14. Cost me a place in the RatPack finals.

        Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 21:12

        That's harsh Derek, just bad luck mate…luck plays a part no doubt, and Joel Smith gets another shot after that rubbish.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:33

    Cheers Lazza….you too mate!, it's the business end woohoo

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:42

    Pieman and Nick (deafness) should be a close one too.

      Trades galore, hedski! Still got plenty to come

Kanga · 03/08/2018 at 19:33

Heated discussion last week watching the footy at the pub among mainly Richmond supporters.
Who are Richmonds top 10 players in order? (NOT SUPERCOACH GUYS)
It was pretty much agreed on the first 4 with Martin at 2 as he has only had 1 A+ season and it was an A++ one though.
Like to get people thoughts.
Rance, Dusty, Riewoldt, Cotchin and then???

    Doc · 03/08/2018 at 19:38

    Edwards is very underated, Houli would probably be in there too don't know too much about their list though, just my two cents 🙂

    hedski · 03/08/2018 at 19:40

    Add Astbury, Grimes, Edwards, Nank, Short and Caddy/Prestia?

      Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 19:47

      Yeah Short's really come along, and Prestia's a gun if he could just stay fit…Nank, Vlastuin, Edwards when he's on, Bachar, SNAGS Higgins!

    Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 19:54

    Based on this year:
    Riewoldt, Rance, Edwards, Cotchin, Dusty, Lambert, Grimes, Vlaustin, Astbury, Prestia

    But this is different to who is the most important to the team, cos Nankervis would be in the top 6.

Defying_Madness · 03/08/2018 at 20:14

Menegola going huge, hopefully he makes up for all of his turds this year

    Cobee Bear · 03/08/2018 at 20:27

      Defying_Madness · 03/08/2018 at 20:53

        Lovin it!

Rick Grimes · 03/08/2018 at 20:46

Gee Kelly is a gun. One of the best rookies I can recall.

    Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 23:58

    Gotta wonder about SC scoring .. Kelly was BOG for mine and comes up 6th best scorer.. would have had 2 goals if not for advantage….

    Wonder what price he will be next year ..he’ll be about $435 next week

      Rick Grimes · 04/08/2018 at 07:41

      DE hurts him I think. He tidies that up a bit and will be hitting big scores.

      theRealPod · 04/08/2018 at 08:42

      Kelly rushed kick to Tiger defenders numerous times during first quarter which is a big no no against the reining premiers and top of the ladder team. You just know they'll make you pay for that shiiite, and they did big time!! Definitely not BOG, that goes to Jelwood.

      On a positive note, we did find another ruck in Abbott. Very impressive first game!!!

hedski · 03/08/2018 at 21:04

What a crackin game.
If only all Friday night footy was like this.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 21:13

Clash of the TITANS in my Last Minute Rags League….Thats wht she Saad vs POD Fiction, Wow vs SC-Sixty6. 2nd vs 3rd.

Only 8 different starters in their onfield players….
Wow has Heron and O.McDonald onfield, with Howe and Sicily as backup (good luck with that!) , 66 has Ahern and Heron on field..with Fyfe and Sicily as backup ( maybe in 3 weeks?) , who wins…and who cares?..lol.
Am I bad?…am I a bad man?…lol

    F6 I mean

    Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 09:47

    Ahern for mine against a weak lions midfield

    The possum was trying to settle me down.
    No. Great game.

Blueth · 03/08/2018 at 22:32

Since when does GAZ missed those shots?
2 in fact

BrownlowBoy · 03/08/2018 at 22:33

If it bleeds, you can kill it.

Geelong showed the Tigers are beatable. If they had a bit of luck they would have rolled them.

    zerowins · 03/08/2018 at 22:37

    Dont think they did. Sure they came close but still didnt win

      BrownlowBoy · 03/08/2018 at 22:43

      Well if Ablett kicked it Geelong win…
      Thurlow doesn't stuff the kick up early in the 4th and Tigers don't get the momentum back…

      Geelong could have had them, despite playing terribly.

        hedski · 03/08/2018 at 23:26

        Reckon we'll do OK next month BB.👍

          neil demons delight · 03/08/2018 at 23:35

          if Gawn kicks straight and Touhy doesn't dees are on top Luck has a lot to do with it but I agree with BB in fact I think the cats got more out of the game but they have to get there Good luck fellas except against the dees

          Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 23:48

          Nah, good try cats… Tigers should have scored 5 more goals.. and the Tigers have 5 premiership players coming back in the next 2 weeks.. and the Cats won’t have Meredith and O’Gormon in their best 5..
          first by how an honourable loss means so much …

            Lazza · 03/08/2018 at 23:49

            First by = funny

            Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 23:53

            Is Meredith and O'Gorman the Cat's Lawfirm?…;)

              Lazza · 04/08/2018 at 00:02

              Well they’re not that good cos they don’t know how to prosecute incorrect disposal, holding the ball or head high tackles…

          BrownlowBoy · 04/08/2018 at 08:23

          Agree. Just gotta beat the arch enemy next week.

    BadgerHoney7 · 04/08/2018 at 08:12

    kinda disagree – agree that they're beatable no doubt but 'a bit of luck' also didn't go the tigers way either – umpires were extremely questionable and game should've realistically been put to bed at half time

      BrownlowBoy · 04/08/2018 at 08:22

      Yeah I agree there, umpiring was shocking. No idea how Parfitt's tackle wasn't high or even a sling. But I think it does come down to luck. Just little moments in the game went Richmond's way. No doubt they created their own luck with the way they were playing. Geelong were lucky to be that close in the end, and Richmond ended up being lucky to win.

      theRealPod · 04/08/2018 at 08:37

      The umps let the game flow as it should, always does this time of the season running into finals. Plenty of free kicks both ways that could of and would of been given earlier in the season. Did you see the Parfitt high tackle and sling all in one? Definite free kick missed there. Did you see the chopping of the arms on Jelwood mark in the 3rd quarter that was absolutely there? My point is both sides should of received obvious free kicks but didn't. The better side won on the night but the Cats are starting to show some form at the right time of the season. Carna Cats.

zerowins · 03/08/2018 at 22:47

Theres hundreds of things that happen throughout games that can change outcomes. But it is completely irrelevant.

G.C. · 03/08/2018 at 22:54

I know I should take Danger's VC score, but I'm looking at Gawn playing GCS and its making me awfully tempted to roll the dice…

    Stopper · 03/08/2018 at 23:07

    You would be stupid if you didn’t. A couple of my opponents have VC Danger and hopefully they C him.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 23:41

    Witts isn't a pushover.

    Butch · 04/08/2018 at 07:32

    If Gawn does 150 it’s literally an extra 20 points, I’m not risking it.

Connor · 03/08/2018 at 22:55

reversed my Savage to Menagola trade 10 minutes before the bounce…

Snake eyes · 03/08/2018 at 23:05

Who do i bench to take selwoods 159 out of merrett/pendles/rockliff and coniglio?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2018 at 23:40

    Rocky.

    neil demons delight · 04/08/2018 at 00:04

    Rocky no doubt

GeorgeS · 03/08/2018 at 23:48

God I'm confused. Left the VC by accident (stuck at work) on Danger, then he pulls out a 132. My opponent has Titch as VC and Gawn as Capt. So love yuor opinions on whether I should take Danger's score or gamble on either Titch or Maxy?

    Mark Fawcett · 04/08/2018 at 10:26

    130 plus go for Dangerfield and play it safe:)

      GeorgeS · 04/08/2018 at 14:08

      Thanks Mark- think I'll take your advice

        hedski · 04/08/2018 at 14:53

        Titch has nearly tonned up at half time!

jjj · 04/08/2018 at 02:41

Opponent has Breust and Fritsch as unique forward options.
Mclean, Dev, billings and walters are common

My forward line is Dev, Mclean, Heeney, Franklin, Walters, Billings, Ahern and Tim smith.

Who should i loop? Not sure i can trust buddy, note sure Heeney doesnt cop a greenwood tag. I am hesitant to bet against Walters in a derby and billings may be safer been common.

Thoughts would be a great help.

    SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2018 at 13:14

    McLean. Only 2x scores above 90 since R10

Davo · 04/08/2018 at 06:04

Need to trade Savage to either T Mac, McGovern or Hurn. Which one community?
Cheers.

Shake_n_Bake_ · 04/08/2018 at 06:27

Back from L.A & Hawaii just in time for Sc finals! Good luck to all. Looks like l didnt start to bad Selwood Danger Dusty hope that continues 😉

    theRealPod · 04/08/2018 at 08:45

    Welcome home!

    Derek · 04/08/2018 at 10:12

    You have Selwood, well played

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 04/08/2018 at 11:38

      Not last week Derek, couldn’t loop either whole bench played. This week l looped Selwood because Giro got dropped.

    hedski · 04/08/2018 at 12:05

    Nice one Shake, playing you in a couple of losers finals, I have those 3 plus Menagola, also copping a donut but happy with the start.

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 04/08/2018 at 12:44

      Should go close! Trying to relax a bit now in front of the set. Will keep a close eye 👁!

    neil demons delight · 04/08/2018 at 15:34

    Good to see you back mate Tried my best to look after Cazaly for you.Good luck bud NDD

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 04/08/2018 at 17:31

      Really happy with every team in up there Cazaly 56th we are sitting. Had a great year Neil, can you go all the way??

        neil demons delight · 04/08/2018 at 17:59

        No sadly only 1 trade but still there

          Shake_n_Bake_ · 04/08/2018 at 18:08

          I have 2 but wont mean anything if l dont get past this rd!

DeanCod · 04/08/2018 at 09:06

Help! Do or die. Need to trade Savage and Fritsch to either – K.Simpson and Greene or Wingard and J.McGovern (def under $497k)?‬

    SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2018 at 13:12

    Simpson/Greene

Bill · 04/08/2018 at 09:18

I have 2 trades left. Is it worth using one to trade Fyfe to Macrae?

    Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 09:31

    Yup

    Derek · 04/08/2018 at 10:10

    100%

      Bill · 04/08/2018 at 10:17

      Is Fyfe likely to play again this year?

Jono Taylor · 04/08/2018 at 09:32

Derek, Rusty or someone who has a clue. Lying Lyon dropped Duman my cover for Howe so Howe must be traded. I have Lynch, WB but I don’t think he can score enough. Only two trades left and I want a spare. Have Laird, McGovern, Hurn, Ryan and Rance. Can spend up to $472K.
Who to get? Hurley, T. Mc, Witherdon, Crisp or Shaw.
Need to make my trade this morning.
Cheers and good luck.

    TheGreatBozza · 04/08/2018 at 09:39

    Shaw or T Mac for me.

    Hurley up and down, Crisp and Witherden being impacted by Murray and Hodge respectively

    Russty_ · 04/08/2018 at 09:54

    Hi Jono, I'm with Bozza, T-Mac or Shaw..T-Mac just.. for me.

      Jono Taylor · 04/08/2018 at 09:56

      Thanks boys

    Derek · 04/08/2018 at 10:08

    Howe should only miss one week, so I would hold him. Lynch is a warm body, hopefully he can do ok. Lynch had a couple of nice games to start but has come up against WCE and Port the last two and he has struggled. Dogs have Saints this week, Lynch might get a half decent score.

    TMac and Shaw both have high ceiling,

      Derek · 04/08/2018 at 12:40

      If you hold Howe, make sure Dunman in field in case you need a last min Sunday trade

Richie Porte · 04/08/2018 at 09:35

Need help, who to bring in for Howe, already have Lloyd, Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Brayshaw
Or up front swing Tmac back and also have Heeny, Smith, Walters, Billings, McLean.
Thinking either McGovern or Hurn down back or Wingard, R Gray or The hoff up front. Or is there a better option
Cheers

    Russty_ · 04/08/2018 at 10:15

    Hurn's pretty reliable, 97.6 AV for a defender is pretty good..McGov's in nice form lately but can still score like a yoyo…if he has an off game could only be a 60.

      Richie Porte · 04/08/2018 at 10:44

      Thanks mate

TheGreatBozza · 04/08/2018 at 09:47

Thoughts on Greene or Darling?

I can go De Goey to Darling and Austin up to Webster. It allows me to keep Howe as I’m hoping he’ll be back next week.

D7 – Webster
F6/F7 – Walters/Darling

    Russty_ · 04/08/2018 at 10:07

    You'd hope Darling starts pumping out the big scores again now JJK is down again with his hairline fracture, Degoey could be back next week too Bozza.
    Greene was pretty disappointing last week against the Saints, 46% d.e…maybe still underdone but you never know when he's gonna bounce back into form and kick a bag..risky though

      TheGreatBozza · 04/08/2018 at 10:29

      It’s the JJK injury that is making Darling an attractive option. I have Ahern as a loop today so if he plays well, I might hold De Goey

      I’ll still have Howe to deal with but might drop him to T mac or Hurn

Trades · 04/08/2018 at 09:51

ryan to McDonald?

Freddo · 04/08/2018 at 10:02

Should I take T Kelly's 112. Would have to bench either Parker, Coniglio, or Bontempelli. Which one – leaning towards the Bont, or hold..

    Derek · 04/08/2018 at 12:43

    Take it.

    Parker should go ok this week. If Swans have anything left, this is the week for them to step up.

    Coniglio plays Carlton. Enough said.

    Bont is struggling..

      Freddo · 04/08/2018 at 15:15

      Thanks. Much appreciated.

    Mick · 04/08/2018 at 12:47

    Bench Bont.

    Cobee Bear · 04/08/2018 at 15:33

    Bench the Bont

I’m a patriot · 04/08/2018 at 10:38

All my opponents are vc’ing danger or titch
I feel I can beat’m all
Should I follow suit?
Or vc macrae?
C goes to Gawn

    Ja191 · 04/08/2018 at 10:54

    I feel like unless you have to and are behind in your matchup I wouldn’t. Did that the other week and titch scored 190

Chad · 04/08/2018 at 10:45

Hi community. Thinking of trading savage to either T Mac, hurn or McGovern. Not sure which one. Thoughts??

    SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2018 at 12:55

    TMac ahead of Hurn for mine. Gov stunk it up a bit when JJK was out

Cliffy · 04/08/2018 at 11:06

Hey guys,

Is it crazy to consider going Stef – Grundy? My 1st trade is being used to deal with Howe already. Stef has been a great servant all season for me, would I lose too many points not making the 2nd move?

    SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2018 at 12:54

    Nah, go for it Cliffy! Well… if it's you're in qualifying finals and it's your last trade then probably hold

      Cliffy · 04/08/2018 at 13:11

      I’m in QF for all leagues and have 5 trades left Ken for reference 🙂

        Cliffy · 04/08/2018 at 13:11

        *Kev

        Played too much street fighter last night… 😛

Yeahnah · 04/08/2018 at 11:08

Loop Dusty’s score for JPK, Coniglio, or Zerrett?

    Trades · 04/08/2018 at 11:33

    Tough decision. I don't think either will be tagged. Maybe jpk due to his recent back spasms but he could be bog

    dognino · 04/08/2018 at 11:38

    Jpk 3 round avg of 70, bench him

JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2018 at 11:10

Is anyone thinking of trading out Buddy ?

    Buddy · 04/08/2018 at 11:21

    I'm too scared to

    Doc · 04/08/2018 at 11:41

    Was gonna trade to Menegola but chickened out. Might just get TMac if Ahern loophole fails

Ja191 · 04/08/2018 at 11:15

Ahern or Walters on field? Pretty much locked ahern until I saw walters named in the middle with a few ins in the forward line

    Defying_Madness · 04/08/2018 at 11:28

    I didn't consider Ahern once all week

Trades · 04/08/2018 at 11:29

Franklin or Fritsch if Ahern fails?

Cliffy · 04/08/2018 at 11:45

Ahern or Walters at F6?

hedski · 04/08/2018 at 12:18

Need a bit of advice on strategy fellas.
Had the E on Jelwood so Phillips goes on field, my mid bench is now Ahern and Giro.
Can't put the E on Ahern now but I'm a bit worried that if i have a late out in the mids I'll cop a donut ( already got a def donut).
Is it worth swapping Ahern on field fwd and benching Walters in the mids as he plays last game in case of a potential late out?
Or am I over thinking it? Cheers.

    Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 12:42

    I'm thinking of fielding ahern over walters anyways hedski – named on ball and no higgins could see him smash it.

      SC_Kev7 · 04/08/2018 at 12:52

      Flip side. Tab, Ballas and Grey in see's Sonny play more mid

        Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 12:58

        up against west coast v brisbane another point to take into consideration

    hedski · 04/08/2018 at 17:09

    Well that backfired.

      Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 17:26

      ahhhh sorry mate. I didn't end up going through with it.

hedski · 04/08/2018 at 12:41

Guelfi late out, there goes my fwd cover.

Kane · 04/08/2018 at 12:59

Unfortunately I have to field one of these guys.. battle or Venables. Haaalp

    Kane · 04/08/2018 at 13:01

    My opponent has battle on field also. I'm predicted to win by 30 at the moment

    Ja191 · 04/08/2018 at 13:09

    battle but they're both pretty bad

      Kane · 04/08/2018 at 13:17

      Rip…I know 🙁

        Bergs · 04/08/2018 at 13:33

        Battle

Bergs · 04/08/2018 at 13:30

Got 122k 2 trades left should I trade Fritsch for Deledio or josh Dunkley, or hold fritsch instead?

Defying_Madness · 04/08/2018 at 15:48

Hope nobody fielded Ahern in the end. Having a stinker

    AuroraBorealis?! · 04/08/2018 at 15:50

    I have to field him this week, but im in top 4 for both of my cash leagues, so i'll have another chance next week

BlueBaggerJosh · 04/08/2018 at 16:10

Zorko a lock for 2019

    Defying_Madness · 04/08/2018 at 17:15

    Zerret as well for me

    AuroraBorealis?! · 04/08/2018 at 18:21

    Has he learnt how to handle the tag? Or is he just not being tagged anymore

    Lazza · 05/08/2018 at 00:41

    I started with him this year and traded him after 3 rounds .. then he decided he wanted to play footy ..

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/08/2018 at 16:19

How is that dopey c*nt mcinerny getting first ruck over Stef Martin? Ruining my score this week

Steeeve · 04/08/2018 at 16:28

Held goldy through the good and bad. Now he's going to cost me my final. Luckily it's not an elimination final. He won't be in my team for the next one.

Trades · 04/08/2018 at 16:36

run Franklin on field or trade to McDonald leaving Ryan on field or vice versa?

    Mark Fawcett · 06/08/2018 at 14:58

    did you field Franklin?

      Trades · 06/08/2018 at 20:49

      Yeah last minute change!

Defying_Madness · 04/08/2018 at 16:44

WOOOP
GO THE HAWKIES

    hedski · 04/08/2018 at 17:11

    Good game to watch.
    Sets up a cracking match hawks vs cats next week DM.

      Defying_Madness · 04/08/2018 at 17:15

      Gonna be a cracker as usual. Not sure if our hearts can take another close one

    Derek · 04/08/2018 at 17:42

    Hawks kept them in it for a long time. Silk was magnificent.

johnno2908 · 04/08/2018 at 17:12

Has anyone heard how bad Taranto’s knee is?

    SC_Kev7 · 05/08/2018 at 10:18

    "To be assessed next week".

    They've rested a few for Carlton. Reckon it's a week off freshen up type injury than being really bad

The Ranger · 04/08/2018 at 17:14

Yuk, Goldie and Witherden might cost me a few finals.

    pigjumpprusik · 04/08/2018 at 17:37

    Ended up trading Goldy to Grundy this week so far looking great

TheGreatBozza · 04/08/2018 at 17:15

Better combo?

1. Webster and Darling (Howe at D7 for coming weeks) – 2 trades left
2. T Mac and Walters (no D7 – hold De Goey) – 3 trades left

    pigjumpprusik · 04/08/2018 at 17:36

    Option 2. I like McDonald more than Webster and Darling hasn't done much since his return.

    De Goey only listed as 1 week on injury report, and the extra trades are gold

Derek · 04/08/2018 at 17:54

LEK’s DRivh joke just keeps getting funnier. I hope he got Brodie Smith in for good old times.

Didn’t see game but Btisbane are going ok.

Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 18:48

These showdowns are the best matches of football. Doesn't get enough coverage in the east.

Mark Fawcett · 04/08/2018 at 19:16

Three 3 points wins and a 4 point win. Haven't seen so many starts this close in a long time!

TBone_9 · 04/08/2018 at 19:17

4 great matches of footy so far this weekend, all within a goal! What a treat to watch 🙂

Ja191 · 04/08/2018 at 19:18

is is that hard to put little cameras on each side of the upper padding looking up at each post, easy solution

Finnius · 04/08/2018 at 19:49

Hope too many people didn't trade Buddy

    pigjumpprusik · 04/08/2018 at 20:45

    or bench him 🙁

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/08/2018 at 21:20

    opponent has buddy 🙁

    Mark Fawcett · 04/08/2018 at 22:43

    haha, traded him in another format other than SC for Westhoff! oops! Always happens:)

    Holty01 · 05/08/2018 at 00:11

    Kept him as my f7. Will now put Keefe on field

    Lazza · 05/08/2018 at 00:44

    I was planning to … but couldn’t decide who to pick.. thank god for indecision..

Crow94 · 04/08/2018 at 21:53

So many spuds today….

Derek · 04/08/2018 at 22:33

What a great round of footy. I’ve enjoyed watch the games more for their result than individual SuperCoach scores.

Hawks winning was massive, but to watch Cats, Pies and Port all getting beat, go the Hawkies.

Looking forward to a few massive games next week

    Crow94 · 04/08/2018 at 23:58

    First week all season where there was more than 2 games that had me on the edge… some changes still need to be made.

      neil demons delight · 05/08/2018 at 08:13

      yes crow a few tweaks .Scrap the ruck rule and the protected area rule needs cleaning up otherwise all good

dognino · 04/08/2018 at 22:38

Cash league 2nd chance final I’ve got Oliver plus 140 points Vs gaff and Tmac. Hoping I can scrape through as Ive held my trades this round, only 2 left. And have fielded lynch for Howe and Ahern for de Goey.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/08/2018 at 23:09

Yep 100%
Most supporters would have started easin back in the old chair but by the end would've been right on the edge of their seat!

Rippin round of footy

Leave it alone AFL it goes alright.

Moosehead · 04/08/2018 at 23:11

Held my nerve today. Didn’t VC Titch and walked to the Richmond station a worried SCer after a great exhibition of footy at the G. Instead VC Grundy with Gawn C. Gawn now my E. Also despite so much crap about trading Buddy I kept him. The only thing I did wrong was trade Howe for TMc because after last night I looked like losing my four games but looking ok now.
Luck or smart, definately alot of luck.

kanga · 05/08/2018 at 01:03

Traded buddy for j.kelly + the rest of my piggy – oh well there goes the finals

It is the first week of the finals and these clowns above decide to deposit a giant steaming cow dung on the field for us hard working Super Coaches. ALL OF YAS ARE AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE!!!! Hang your heads in shame the lot of ya!

Aaaahhhh. I feel so much better now……..

    Aurora · 05/08/2018 at 19:58

    Why would you have the first 3 that you named. They are not keepers.

      Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2018 at 14:48

      Couple of rookies in there to.

TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 10:17

I wonder what a PAR score looks like this week. With all those soiled pants out there, I think there will be a high standard deviation in scores. (Either very high or very low) I am sitting on 1600 with Yeo, Ryan, Cripps, Oliver, Gawn, T Mac, and Mundy to play. I am hoping to end up with 2400 from here. How is everyone else travelling?

    TBone_9 · 05/08/2018 at 10:37

    1300 with Gaff, Walters, Gawn, Simmo, Cripps, Cogs, Oliver, T-Mac, Yeo and Titch’s C score to come. Hoping for a super Sunday today mate!

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:06

      Looking good T bone!! I reckon 2500-2600 is possible if all your boys deliver today. Good luck mate!

        TBone_9 · 05/08/2018 at 11:36

        Cheers HAWK! Here’s to hoping mate, used the one trade this week on Stef to Grundy so that’s keeping me in my finals match up this week hahaha

          TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:41

          Nice trade! Stef was scheit and Grundy went big for you. I punted Higgins for Macrae which delivered me 121.💪De Goey was punted for T Mac so hoping he can go big for me as well today. Being finals it was time to pull two bold trades. BANG!

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 10:52

    Sitting on 1495 with Gawn, Clarry, TMac, Kelly, Cogs, Walters, Ryan, Cripps, Simpson and Yeo to come. I will be happy if I can scrape 2500 but knowing the form of a few of my players recently I am worried.

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:27

      You are going big DM! I reckon 2600-2700 is on the cards. Hope the SC gods are nice today.

    KSinny · 05/08/2018 at 10:56

    1589 with Oliver, Gawn, Brayshaw, Gaff, Yeo, Cripps, Simmo, Cogs and Titch's C score to go.

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:30

      Wowie😱. Another big score for you KS. 2700 not out of reach.

    JohnDJ59 · 05/08/2018 at 11:16

    1344 at the moment, with Simmo, Crips, Cogs, Gawn, Oliver and Yeo still to come, plus Titch extra 153 as VC and Grundy 167 as E. Looking to win most of my games and my one and only final in the Won't Back Down league.

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:34

      Beautiful. Looks like you will end up with something similar to me. Probably around the 2400 mark. Leading in a few big finals too mate. Cheers

        JohnDJ59 · 05/08/2018 at 11:58

        Thanks TOPHAWK1, still have my one trade left for emergencies, and cover on most lines, so hoping to finish the season on a good note.

    Ahmad rubas · 05/08/2018 at 14:20

    Currently projected for 2100 only made top 4 in one out of 5 finals looks like I only have to worry about 1 finals series from next week onwards

TBone_9 · 05/08/2018 at 10:34

In a tight Qualifying final this week. I have 98 points, Gaff and Walters, he has Shaw, Kelly and Mundy. I reckon it’s gonna go down to the wire! Good luck to everyone else in tight finals too!

    Derek · 05/08/2018 at 11:01

    What will be this weeks Sunday Surprise?

    I might need some help in the A Graders elimination.

      TBone_9 · 05/08/2018 at 11:37

      Here’s to hoping Sunday’s surprise is Walters playing the whole game in the guts! How are your match ups looking this week Derek?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 11:37

    That will be really tight. Hoping Gaff and Walters pump out big scores for ya on Derby day.

Laird Lad Donuts · 05/08/2018 at 11:43

So season is pretty much over for me after getting either second or third on the ladder in my 4 leagues and getting into the top 9k, i've slipped, run out of all my trades and now I have Higgins and Savage out.
I've given up.
Can the community tell me is there a website out there I can use to make a 2019 super coach team like a draft??
Thanks heaps community

    Derek · 05/08/2018 at 15:20

    Have a break, ease into pre-season and wait for positions and prices around the end of January.

    Next year will be slightly easier picking a starting team, we only need to pick 29 players, as everyone will have Docherty

      Laird Lad Donuts · 05/08/2018 at 15:59

      Docherty and don't forget about Zac Williams!!!
      Also is there a actual website to make a draft or something like a squadbuilder?

Steve · 05/08/2018 at 12:12

Had VC on Macrae 121 not going to be enough, who should l have as C out of Kelly, Cripps, Cogs, Neale, Gawn or Yeo

    r_calve · 05/08/2018 at 12:24

    cripps

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 12:36

    Cripps for me mate. Witts will slow Gawnie down a tad I think.

    pigjumpprusik · 05/08/2018 at 13:02

    Gawn or Kelly

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 12:47

    I think this is too close to call. You should score another 350 points max with those 3 giving you 650 in total. If Cripps scores 150 it means your opponent scores 300. I reckon his other 4 blokes will average around 90 between the 4 of them giving him around 650 in total as well!! Gonna be a nail biter!!

Richard · 05/08/2018 at 12:31

Possible record breaking score by Melbourne today.They are top of the ladder with points for and GC are bottom of the ladder with points for

Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/08/2018 at 12:43

Brought in JJ last week thought hes run home was good. Hes first week l thought what happened! But did he turn that around!

    Lazza · 05/08/2018 at 13:50

    Bastard..😁… I’m playing you in The Rat Pack… your ahead by 92… my Kelly, TMcDonald and Brayshaw vs your Coniglio and Gaff….. I think you got me… 😬

      Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/08/2018 at 15:05

      You have Kelly enough said 🤦‍♂️

        Lazza · 05/08/2018 at 19:41

        Mate, I’d swear I was done, well I did swear .. but in humour.. I’m thinking of going Ryan to JJ this week.. inspired choice…

          Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/08/2018 at 19:47

          Go for it, has a good run.

TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 13:51

WTF is Heater doing?? Does he want to be added to this week's cow dung list!💩

P Dog · 05/08/2018 at 14:16

Kelly is the new Bont……playing great but score still inflated.

    The BONT · 05/08/2018 at 14:24

    15 contested and 8 clearances
    players have those numbers at full time

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 14:31

    Kelly is not overscored imo

    Cobee Bear · 05/08/2018 at 14:41

    Every kick finds a fwd target. Magestic.

Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 14:20

Josh Kelly…

Wow.

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 14:20

    He was my captain if Titch failed damnit

The BONT · 05/08/2018 at 14:23

Kelly is on 114 at HT

BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2018 at 14:51

Deledio cooked again.

BadgerHoney7 · 05/08/2018 at 15:15

Josh Kelly – thanks for coming – not gonna jinx the double century

    Derek · 05/08/2018 at 15:22

    95% TOG. The man is a machine

    Won’t get a rest either with only 1 in GWS bench

      BadgerHoney7 · 05/08/2018 at 15:54

      none on gws bench – he feasted.

AuroraBorealis?! · 05/08/2018 at 15:20

I was projected to win my qualifying final by 200 points after the Hawks v Essendon game. Now my opponent is projected to win by 100. What a shocking saturday

Andrew · 05/08/2018 at 15:21

Projected 2,633 coming into today, 1,766 with Kelly, Simpson, Cripps, Gawn, Yeo, Hurn, Neale and Ryan to come.

Wonder what top score will be.

Cobee Bear · 05/08/2018 at 15:39

I genuinely feel for Carlton supporters. Must be livid.

Derek · 05/08/2018 at 15:47

Make it stop. I thought I had most of my matches in the bag, GWS just keep piling on points.

I’ll need Oliver to score 180+ because of this.

    Cobee Bear · 05/08/2018 at 15:54

    He's on track so far

    BadgerHoney7 · 05/08/2018 at 15:54

    hes on his way to it

    Ja191 · 05/08/2018 at 15:57

    Yep I thought I was good after jelwoods 160. Opp has kelly, Franklin, crisp and Duncan/zorko as uniques… rip

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/08/2018 at 16:01

    On target for 240!

      Derek · 05/08/2018 at 17:03

      Need 184. He will get rested.

Bobby · 05/08/2018 at 16:18

100 points + Hurn vs Josh Kelly going into today.. thought I had it in the bag. Hurn really needs to turn up for me now. What a week for Kelly to remind the entire AFL community just how good is he is

Randomcliche2 · 05/08/2018 at 17:56

2004 points by GWS! Boom! What is the team record?

Ramrod · 05/08/2018 at 17:57

I watched a one sided game – Demons vs a pathetic GCS who have got to be scrapped. The Demons have got some champs but Tom McDONALD is not one of them he is very soft. ‘Looks like Tarzan plays like Jane’ and doesn’t look interested or did he have an off day?

    neil demons delight · 05/08/2018 at 18:14

    obviously don't watch the game closely enough Ram. Tom MacDonald played a team game today just his accuracy was off .Expect big things in the coming weeks NDD

      Ramrod · 05/08/2018 at 18:30

      Neil. I know you are a huge Demon fan, however I did watch the game closely. Tom McDONALD is not a great player and he is soft. Petracca played ok today but he too is not living up to his potential. Both might play well against ordinary times but I’d hate to rely on them in the trenches. I suspect both will let you down in the finals.

        neil demons delight · 05/08/2018 at 19:21

        Agree to disagree Ram however I do agree with Tracca ,not a favourite of mine. Depth is the key to how deep we go Watch out next year .I am around the club and they want Gaff A promising young player and a senior player have been bandied around. NDD

          Ramrod · 05/08/2018 at 19:44

          Yes, next year maybe. Then again, that has been said about your mob for decades.

          Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2018 at 14:46

          Gaff by name, gaffe by nature

Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 18:17

Gaff gone for the season. Bye bye my last trade.

    BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2018 at 18:20

    Can kiss the chance he had at the Brownlow goodbye.

      Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 18:23

      What was he thinking? That was awful. 6 weeks I reckon.

        Derek · 05/08/2018 at 19:48

        That was not a good look. 5 weeks.

    Connor · 05/08/2018 at 18:24

    The reason I have been holding a couple of trades instead of getting Grundy (sorta worked)…

    Kanga · 05/08/2018 at 20:47

    Poor trade management M8.

      Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 20:55

      I had 5 coming out of the byes – thought it was gonna be enough. Injuries have hurt.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2018 at 14:49

    Welcome to the no trades club. We have donuts and beers.

AuroraBorealis?! · 05/08/2018 at 18:29

Well i was hoping to make a defensive upgrade next week, but Gaff has ruined the possibility of that now

    Corey · 05/08/2018 at 19:35

    Same I was going to punt Savage not anymore

      DavidC · 06/08/2018 at 11:58

      Savage out for the season as well

KSinny · 05/08/2018 at 18:40

Looking like about 2750 for me this week!! My best score by about 180

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 19:22

    Nice I think I was 4 points off 2700. Should be some big scores this week

Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 18:59

Will Ryan and Walters do something ever

BrownlowBoy · 05/08/2018 at 19:29

Thanks for dying in the last quarter Hurn.

Won my elimination.

Cheers.

    Bobby · 05/08/2018 at 20:48

    That's disgusting to thank someone that died. You are sick.

Andrew · 05/08/2018 at 19:42

2,705, Ryan and Hurn slowing didn't help me

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 19:53

    I lost to a guy who went 2780 and I got 2696. Unfortunate, Ryan let me down as well along with some others

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/08/2018 at 20:18

    Nice! Some big scores this week. I managed 2606, good enough to win 3 out of 4 leagues

Derek · 05/08/2018 at 19:47

anyone like to predict the final top 8?

    Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 19:52

    richmond, eagles, gws, pies, hawks, geelong, dees, port.

    Not confident on port making it, depends on whether they beat the eagles otherwise north

      Jaco · 05/08/2018 at 20:12

      GWS’s injuries will hurt.

        Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 21:09

        They will for sure, just had a look at them. Had a really unlucky year along with the Pies regarding injuries

    BlueBaggerJosh · 05/08/2018 at 20:22

    Richmond, Eagles, Giants, Collingwood, Geelong, Hawthorn, North Melbourne, Sydney

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/08/2018 at 21:02

    Richmond, West Coast, Collingwood, GWS, North Melbourne, Geelong, Melbourne, Sydney

      Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 21:05

      I reckon Hawks are a lock now, just got to win 1 game and we are guaranteed a spot due to our percentage

        SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/08/2018 at 21:11

        Yeah you're right… I had Sydney and Hawks on same number of wins, missed the percentage. Replace Sydney with Hawks

    Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 21:19

    Richmond, West Coast, Giants, Hawks, Pies, Dees, Port and Cats

      Defying_Madness · 05/08/2018 at 21:20

      Similar to mine except you have my hawkies beating the cats. Hope you are right, would love a top 4 spot

    Marty · 05/08/2018 at 21:39

    Carlton, Gold Coast, Brisbane, St Kilda, Dogs, Freo, Crows, North. Oops sorry was standing on my head.

    Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2018 at 15:56

    It appears plenty would. But after playing with the ladder predictor. Hell no. GWS could miss or have double chance, or even a home double chance. Cray cray.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 06/08/2018 at 20:11

    Richmond, West Coast, Collingwood, GWS, Melbourne, Geelong, Hawthorn, Port

squizz · 05/08/2018 at 19:47

The only way Gaff will get out of his predicament is to claim that Brayshaw said he has been messing around with his mother a la Tony Shaw type comments from years ago. Maybe his action is a way of getting to Melbourne?

    Cookie · 05/08/2018 at 21:48

    Don't think breaking one of the Melbourne players brothers jaw is the best way to get to a club

The Ranger · 05/08/2018 at 19:52

Josh Kelly you beauty!
Got me over the line in 5 finals, I owe you one Joshy!

    Lazza · 05/08/2018 at 20:18

    Yep, if not for Kelly .. Shake n Bake would have sent me packing from The Rat Pack… most importantly for me I won all my cash league games…

Kanga · 05/08/2018 at 19:53

How does Russty score so badly when he talks about all of his trades on here and has a 'full premo' side? Lost all his leagues too hahahahhaa.

    Shake_n_Bake_ · 05/08/2018 at 20:10

    He had Nic nat Howe Fyfe Sicily all not playing

      Russty_ · 06/08/2018 at 08:00

      I don't have any of those players in my team

        Sc_Wow · 06/08/2018 at 08:21

        How does someone with no rookies score so poorly

          Russty_ · 06/08/2018 at 08:42

          Hey wow, glad you beat your mate Kanga this week..how's that road to number 1 going?
          I'm still in it with a shot in 3 Leagues….seeing as you and your mates are having a go at my performance, I hope you don't drop another 125 spots next week without Gaff on field.
          Cheeeers buddy!

            Road to number 1 · 06/08/2018 at 12:09

            haha good point rust, he only lasted 3/4 of the season, fancy having no trades left for the last 7 games of the year what a spud.

              Randomcliche2 · 06/08/2018 at 16:32

              It's feasible but not great. As sprint trader here, I can confirm that the No Trades Club is booming and we are having a few donuts and beers. 2595/21 here.

            Sc_Wow · 06/08/2018 at 20:12

            How am I still outscoring you!?

        Shake_n_Bake_ · 06/08/2018 at 09:30

        Sorry Russty l was playing Gators team he had those players. My mistake sorry buddy 🙂

    Mongul · 05/08/2018 at 20:10

    He spends far too much time ‘Advising’ people when maybe he should concentrate on his own team. He is certainly helpful to new SCers.

    neil demons delight · 05/08/2018 at 20:24

    you are a complete tool Kanga. Russty helps more ppl than anyone here .Get a life

      Kanga · 05/08/2018 at 20:45

      Niel there is no point. Why help ppl when he can't even go himself. Just an observation I've seen. He certainly posts alot, I'd suggest quality over quantity in his case. Just my 2 cents. Cheers K.

    JohnDJ59 · 05/08/2018 at 20:46

    Not sure where you are getting your info from, Russty won in the Sons league and Magnificent 7 league that I am in with him.

      Kanga · 05/08/2018 at 22:27

      Who loses to someone that didn't even break 2400.

        JohnDJ59 · 05/08/2018 at 23:38

        TheSloaneRangers and Gators Gumps.

          Derek · 06/08/2018 at 08:25

          Poor Gator. He ran out of trades many weeks ago. I think he’s packed up and gone for an early mad Monday

    Russty_ · 06/08/2018 at 07:57

    Why do you care Kanga?…you seem quite concerned about what I'm doing, lying about how many leagues I lost , how would you know how many Leagues I won or lost in…?
    Seems like you have an axe to grind for some reason even though I've never heard of you…another guy under a fake account again maybe?…someone who's already been banned yet still keeps coming back under fake names, slagging people off.
    Start an intense debate account ..if you can.

      Sugarsoap · 06/08/2018 at 14:48

      Don’t worry about him Russty.

    Da_Boysh · 06/08/2018 at 12:15

    why is everyone such a pack of fking sooks

Finnius · 05/08/2018 at 19:54

2681 for me – won all of my league finals. Will be down to zero trades though with gaff being an absolute [email protected]#wit.

Gonna be a tense couple of weeks.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 20:44

    Outstanding score mate! Sensational. I only managed 2368 with a few untimely turds. Still, no major injuries, one trade and $60K in the kitty. Will have to reload next week in a number of semi finals. Onwards and upwards I say. Congrats to all my rivals who knocked me over. Just too good. Cheers Finnius.

    JohnDJ59 · 05/08/2018 at 20:49

    2559 for me, beat my best for the year by nine, won my lone final in the Won't Back Down league, plus all my bottom 8 finals. Still have one trade left for emergencies.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/08/2018 at 21:15

Well done patch too good for me in the SC elite league.
Elite score 2623 nice pods in jelwood and buddy 👏

Huge gaffe by gaff. 6 weeks as has clean sheet but broke his jaw. Ouch

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/08/2018 at 21:57

    Hi Trigga. I got beat too in my SC Elite prelim by 46 SC. Close but no cigar. Time to back up for some big semi finals. Coaches who own Gaff will need to trade his arse out. (If they have any trades left). Dodged a bullet there. The bloke was sooky and remorseful, but he broke Brayshaw's jaw. Can only do that with a closed fist, not an open one. Agree with you 100%. Throw the book at him. Good luck next week!

      Finnius · 06/08/2018 at 11:55

      Up against you this week tophawk. Should be tight.

      BockChoy · 06/08/2018 at 12:58

      Actually, you can break a jaw with an open palm… by striking with the heel of your hand. Doesn't take away from the fact that Gaff will be up for 5+ weeks out.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2018 at 13:15

      Thanks hawk same 2 u.
      I have a few leagues where i have the week off but others i am teeing up again this week. So mixed bag.

      Will go in with the same 22 backing some premos to produce premo scores.

    hedski · 06/08/2018 at 13:09

    I have Patch in the semi this week….not looking good, hope I get Howe back.

Connor · 05/08/2018 at 22:12

2500 with only 20 players – what could have been

kanga · 05/08/2018 at 23:50

'Kanga' is giving me a bad name!

Tom McDonald is a really good player just not a superstar and nor is he being paid like one so i dont get peoples incorrect analysis of him. He is a good kick at goal just missed a couple easy ones he normally nails.
SUPERCOACH LOSERS BITTER BY HIS SCORE OF IS MY GUESS!

40 goals, 16 behinds from 14 games this year and has spent some time up the ground on the wing.
23 goals, 7 behinds last year.

J.Cameron got 5 – Gaff is getting a minimum of 6 probably 7.

    Hoarse · 06/08/2018 at 03:23

    Your opinion. Not even ‘a really good player’. Does not show enough desperation. No doubt he would have voted against the aborted fitness camp earlier this year which will haunt MFC. I won 4/4 with 2688. How did you go sport?
    Gaff will get 3.

      DavidC · 06/08/2018 at 12:10

      3?? You are kidding right? Minimum 6, some are suggesting as much as 10.

        Hoarse · 06/08/2018 at 14:45

        He is not a Sicily thug. Never been suspended. He hit him but didn’t mean to punch his jaw like Hall did. From what I can gather, he meant to hit him in the chest to get away from Brayshaws scragging. I have played a lot of footy and know accidents happen. I am not condoning what Gaff did but I understand how these situations occur.

          Holty01 · 06/08/2018 at 14:55

          He will get minimum of 6. He wont play finals. 170 games with no report or fine wont save him. He is a fair player and is very remorseful but the AFL cant let this go lightly. If he only gets 3 the AFL will be a laughing stock as other incidents that get 3 are no where near as bad as what Gaff has done.

          Lazza · 06/08/2018 at 19:07

          Probably has a few fresh air shots and slices his golf swing too..

          Don’t be surprised if he gets 12 – 15 games. Legal eagles suggesting he should get 12 months.. Even Galbally who represents these guys said on the field or not, he should get 1 to 2 years.

NoLanguage · 06/08/2018 at 03:11

Jesus what a week not to have Kelly and Grundy 🙁

Lost all of my qualifying finals with a paltry 2300 thanks to so many 70-80 scores zzzzz

Stef Martin to Grundy this week even if I need to use two trades???? Got 3 in the bank.

JohnDJ59 · 06/08/2018 at 09:03

I'm glad to say my team Black Flag is having a strong finish to the season, in the last four weeks I have managed to win most of my games, had my two best scores for the season of 2550 and 2559 and moved up the rankings from 35798 to 26868. Nothing like last year, but at least I am going in the right direction. Won my elimination final in my Won't Back Down league, so still a chance to defend my premiership and won all my bottom eight finals.

    Derek · 06/08/2018 at 13:55

    great work. you must have trades left to be finishing strong like that?

      JohnDJ59 · 06/08/2018 at 14:27

      Hi Derek, only the one now after I gave in and traded out Fyfe for Dusty two weeks ago, but apart from that my team has been settled since round 16 and have had good cover on most lines, although after a few injuries and non starters from the last weekend that could change this week.

        Derek · 06/08/2018 at 14:35

        to finish strong you need to have a few trades left. but if you don't trade aggressively early your rank will not be as good. i'm still trying to get the balance right.

          JohnDJ59 · 06/08/2018 at 14:58

          Injuries have been the main difference for me this year Derek, I was settled after round 16 last year as well, but still had six trades left, plus I was able to do the trades I planned for, so my rank didn't suffer, whereas this year I used too many trades just trying to cover injuries in the early part of the season.

Swoopster · 06/08/2018 at 10:15

My best score for the season 2688.
Won all my league games. 4 trades left and I don't have the Gaff headache.
To all those who questioned why have Buddy…. That's why.

    Lazza · 06/08/2018 at 20:28

    Gees swoop, I almost traded Buddy and had him on the pine.. fortunately I have a swing/loophole bench player on every line so was able to get his score via the big E.

    2637 for me.. into 4 prelims (3 are cash leagues) and 1 elimination against Russty in The Rat Pack..

Mark Fawcett · 06/08/2018 at 11:43

Well that was a big weekend. Had what I thought would be a good enough score to move into the top 50 but went backward from 58th to 60th!! 2,604 and only good enough for a ranking of 10,023 for the week! Some MASSIVE scores produced. Even captained Mitchell which still wasn't good enough, guess a lot captained Kelly for his huge score? Poor scores from Henney, McLean, Martin and Laird didn't help, nor Simpson or McDonald and Pendles:( Had Cripps, Mitchell, Kelly, Oliver, Dangerfield and Hogan for the big scores, just didn't pick the right captain I'm guessing?

    BockChoy · 06/08/2018 at 13:02

    One player in my league scored a 2844… could've been more but he played the VC on Titch and not the C on Kelly!

Da_Boysh · 06/08/2018 at 12:13

brought in Hawkins for Walters. Kill me now.

    Steeeve · 06/08/2018 at 12:45

    Someone would have brought him in for Buddy. Can guarantee it.
    Hold Hawkins, has a soft run home now.

    Lazza · 06/08/2018 at 20:22

    Bang bang 😛

Steeeve · 06/08/2018 at 12:44

I'm in two competitive leagues (plus some others I don't even check).
In one I had the highest score of the round.
In the other I lost by almost 200 points.
Some MASSIVE scores this week, good on ya if you scored up around 2800.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/08/2018 at 13:19

    3 banged out 2900's
    Unbelievably huge scores this week

    Imagine if u scored 2903 and this still wasnt high enough to win the weekly.prize!!. Be a bit dark. The anger sharks b swimming in your head…
