Round 20 SuperCoach Panic Room

Published by Jock on

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!

Andrew

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

Selwood. His scores have plummeted being used in the backline

Andrew

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

Russty_

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

Lekdog

I'm looping Selwood

Steeeve

Probably take Joel's score I imagine

Noah

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

Thanks

The Ranger

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

Noah

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

KingWinter7

Cripps

r_calve

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

Would rather an extra high scoring mid, calve.

Yeahnah

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

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

Lekdog

Llooooooooooyd

Cobee Bear

McDonald

KingWinter7

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

Can't see anything better for that price King.

KingWinter7

Yeah neither, thanks mate

Lekdog

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

Max

Am I mad for thinking about going Buddy to Brown?

Easy run home, plus Buddy is injured.

The Ranger

Nah not mad at all.

Lekdog

Not mad

Locked and Loaded

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

Nearing**

Big M

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

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

Ja191

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

Jace

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

Flaccid Jaff

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

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

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

Lekdog

Tmac

Rucks

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

Franklin - Guns

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

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

L G

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

Russty_

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

Cobee Bear

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

Franklin - Guns

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

Limesoda

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_

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

Lekdog

Trade

FearTheBeard

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

Hurn is quite consistent.

FearTheBeard

Thanks for taking the time Noah.

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

Brayshaw

BrayshawBrayshawhas been solid in my side.

Maverick_

I like McGovern FTB

Russty_

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

FearTheBeard

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_

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

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_

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

The Ranger

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

Hold

The Ranger

Phew. Glad someone said that. I was panicking.

Liam

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

a) will net you more points imo

dontblushbaby

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

Ryan

Oooooo good question.

Jace

He's been selected to play

Stupid Coach

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

Ryan to Shaw

Skinna

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_

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

Webster to Llooooooooooooooyd

Maverick_

webster to lloyd over rocky to cripps??

bold move lek crippsy is in blistering form!

Lekdog

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

Cliffy

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

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_

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

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

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_

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

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

TRIGGA_HAPPY

What the hell crowden!
Havent played afl for weeks but now due to form u earnt a spot in the 22.

How am i going to loop ahern now?
Finals spanner may take some fancy footwork.

But can you smell it?
The anticipation – the geed up supercoaches.

Nearly time to rock and roll.

Love [email protected] <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😁" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f601.svg"&gt;

Good luck to all except if u r playing – dont worry ..<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😉" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f609.svg"&gt;

With limited funds brought in "the man"
Pod
Go well son in gr8 form of late.

Russty_

It's excoiting mate!…good luck this week, bad deal with Crowden..who's the man? Anthony Mundine? 😉

Rucks

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

Connor

NO

LOUT

Rhys Stanley late out. Jackson thurlow in

Maverick_

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

The Ranger

Hope no-one brought him in…Fin?!

Finnius

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

Kane

What happened to Stanley?

Russty_

He's got a sore calf Kane.

Kane

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

Russty_

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

Trades

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

Doc

Buddy to Menegola, good trade or bad trade?

DaisyCutter

Good trade considering Buddy’s injuries/form drop

DaisyCutter

Guelfi – Heeney/Menegola?
Jelwood – MCrouch?

Finnius

heeney and hold

Defying_Madness

Menegegegegeola

Russty_

Meningitis is killing the pig! 🙂

Tim

Last fwd spot:

T Mac or Wingard?

Finnius

wingard

Trades

McDonald for this week

Mark Fawcett

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_

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

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_

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

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_

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

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

Mark Fawcett

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

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

Lazza

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

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Just brought in abbott in draftstars

How is this for fwd line selection tonight?

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

Maverick_

webster too Lloyd

or

Rocky to Cripps

Lazza

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

Mark Fawcett

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

The Ranger

Cripps.

Ned

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_

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

I'm with Ned

Flaccid Jaff

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

Best defender under $450k?
1k off TMac

Doc

Probably Shaw, Touhy and Rance

Lazza

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..

hedski

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_

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

Derek

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_

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

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

Lazza

Hey what’s Tophawk’s team?

Russty_

Tophawks Laz

hedski

Top Hawks pretty sure Lazza.

hedski

Cheers Kev, good luck in our h2h.
Munching a donut in def, by last weeks lineup it looks like you're copping 2.
Pretty sure you'll have a few trades up your sleeve unlike myself. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f44d.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🍩" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f369.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🍺" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11/svg/1f37a.svg"&gt;
CARNA CATTAS.
Hope everyone goes well in first week of finals.

hedski

Yeah you had trades!

SC_Kev7

Trades galore, hedski! Still got plenty to come

Kanga

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

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

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

Russty_

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

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

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

Cobee Bear

Just traded him in. Please don't jinx! haha

Defying_Madness

wooooooooooh what a goal

Cobee Bear

Lovin it!

Rick Grimes

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

Lazza

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

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

theRealPod

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

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

Russty_

Ripping game…hope the Catters get the choccies.

The Ranger

AFL: I think we need to change the rules of the game.

The Ranger: Nah AFL, don't reckon you do. The game is fine…

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

I still respect the greatness though Rick, and the expert, consistent top 100 finishes.

Tiges got away with one there/ great effort by cats .May have seen the GF Tough on your boys Hedski hope they make it cause of games like that NDD

hedski

Ahh, I was prancing around yelling in the last minute Neil.
The possum was trying to settle me down.
No. Great game.

Blueth

Since when does GAZ missed those shots?
2 in fact

BrownlowBoy

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

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

BrownlowBoy

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

Reckon we'll do OK next month BB.👍

neil demons delight

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

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

First by = funny

Russty_

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

Lazza

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

BrownlowBoy

Agree. Just gotta beat the arch enemy next week.

BadgerHoney7

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

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

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

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

G.C.

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…

Russty_

Witts isn't a pushover.

Butch

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

Connor

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

Duckwood you beautiful specimen

hedski
