“When it’s early in the season and you don’t care for future woes/Anything goes!”

It’s not very well known, but the 1934 Cole Porter musical Anything Goes! was actually about a sailor picking his Supercoach side early in the season, without a care in the world.

Lek and Patch haven’t quite channelled that particular musical (because they’re uncultured cretins who haven’t seen it), but they’re captured the vibe of the thing.

They’ve thrown together their first* drafts for season 2019 and have released a podcast to show you, community, how not to pick a Supercoach side.

They talk locks, speculative picks and downright awful selections – including Patch’s four mid-pricer backline – to kick it off with a bang.

And if you haven’t already – get around the Trade Planner from Community legend Chicko.

I went from a kind of decent team to a very very stupid team indeed today, with the hopes of deceiving everyone and getting a huge leg up whilst saving heaps of dosh for probably trading in decent players when all that goes horribly wrong!
It'll probably still end up as a fairly boring starting team though eventually.

Wondering how miles can be compared to cog. Cog was in a top team, with a top midfeild that helped around him. Miles is going to a side that will get pumped everyweek

Lekdog
Admin

Fair, Cogs had three year's of 90+ while Miles has had 3 year's of 89.9+

Cogs is better no doubt, has a higher ceiling and set himself up as a keeper going into last year. But no one thought he'd be a keeper, everyone thought he'd be a safe stepping stone, that's the similarity to Miles. He'll be a safe stepping stone, he just down't have the upside that Cogs has proven he has.

JohnDJ59

I had Cogs down as a keeper, in that I wanted to keep him and was hoping that it would be worth it.

Daveh
Guest
Daveh

Nonsense. The bloke had a 105 season to his name, there was plenty who had him as M8 planned. To say they both have had 3 90+ seasons sarcastically if extremely silly.

Miles can easily average around the 85-90 mark in which case he is a slow burn and not worth it.

Good discussion on the POD Lek & Patch.

So many options this time of year, my brain is mush.

Starting team is taking on the Cox curse – Grundy & Gawn, πŸ”’. That means less premium across one line.

My dimlema this presents:

Option 1 – Simpson & Yeo?
Option 2 – Witherden & Macrae?

PJ8
Guest
PJ8

Mixture of each for me:
Yeo & Witherden
Use extra money elsewhere

Cheers PJ. I’m struggling to part with Macrae. If he goes huge again, it’s going to hurt.

Patch
Guest
Patch

Taking on the Cox Curse – don't say we didn't warn you! Such a huge cash setback as well – I can't see myself going the duo.

As someone with Witherdon and Yeo I'm a bit torn – especially how much I love Macrae – but I reckon Option 1 at this stage

Rivo
Guest
Rivo

Curse will be broken Patch. I’m leaning to Option 2 but genuinely wavering. Bring on the pre season already.

Rivo
Guest

I should also add that Witherden/ Simpson are my current D3 (have Lloyd & Laird). Yeo was M4. Macrae would become M1.

Avoid Armitage. Low ceiling and aging body. Plenty of other options around that price – Higgins, Dahlhaus, Worpell as examples.

Agreed Rivo. Saints players in general are worrying me, even with Roberton in my side.

Hi community,
I’d just like to throw a few names out into the open and get your opinions on them and what you think they might be able to do in 2019.
Viney, Taranto, Josh J kennedy, Zac williams, Zorko, Crisp.
Cheers community!

James

I'm just going to say yes or no..
Viney-no

Williams- yes
Zorko – yes
Crisp – yes if taking kick ins at Collingwood (is he?)

PizzaSafety

Viney – no
Taranto – potentially
JJK – potentially
Williams – yes
Zorko – no
Crisp – I think Howe takes their kick ins? how much he does determines the answer to that question.

GreendaleFC
Guest
GreendaleFC

Viney – possibly yes, has been training well
Taranto – no
JJK – More no than yes
Z Williams – yes but there might be better options, such as kick in takers
Zorko – No
Crisp – No (doesn't take kick ins)

Flagpies19

Flagpies19

Kick ins are taken by Howe and Maynard.

Lekdog

Viney -No
Taranto -Number stack up for a potential breakout but we're not talking 110+ here we're talking 90+
JJK-Will score 200 in round 1 then miss 2 rounds
Williams Yes
Zorko-wait and see, no to start
Crisp-Need to see Pies lineup

Miles for mine, although Libba could be a good bet.

Miles or Hall, haven't even considered Rocky, can't imagine he provides too much value

Harry

Could andy McGrath take the next step this year? What do you think his role will be?

Micky Donovan
Guest
Micky Donovan

McGrath will def improve his ave but not enough to make him a keeper and he won't make you enough money to be a viable option IMO. Much better options out there

Patch
Guest
Patch

I reckon this is the right call. A lot of competition for spots in that Essendon midfield and I'm not willing to take a punt. I reckon he'll break out, but will he finish the season as a top eight player? I don't see it at this stage, but I'm willing to be proven wrong!

Phat Phuc
Guest
Phat Phuc

We dont need him finish top 8 Patch we just want him to make some Yuans.
He's a smart footballer and Brains beats braun

Hi All,

First time poster and listener!!

Looking for some thoughts on the below:

$25,400 in the bank

Def: Lloyd, Sicily, Williams, Roberton, Burgess, Hore (Answerth,McLennan)
Mid: Cripps, Fyfe, Yeo, Martin, Merrett, Constable, Valente, Hayes (O’halloran, Hind, Foley)
Ruc: Grundy, Goldstein (Fort)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Greene, Setterfield, Corbett (Cavarra, Moore)

I'm usually a $150k and under rookie selector (provided they're named) and also looking at starting without a loophole if a bottom priced ruck is selected.

Phat Phuc
Guest
Phat Phuc

Did they fix Robertons Heart?

Patch
Guest
Patch

Apparently they have, yes

Phat Phuc
Guest
Phat Phuc

Big risk, I wanna see him play 80 minutes in every JLT match before sign him up.
They also reckon that they fixed Kreuzers heart problem but there's no info anywhere as to what that issue was so I'm skeptical that they could have fixed it if they don't know what it was.
Sounds a bit like my Ferrari mechanic "I don't know what the rattle noise was but we fixed it. That'll be $3,500 thanks Mr Phuc".

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Yeah right, at $130 an hour a mechanic makes out like a bandit whatever they do to your depreciating shitbox these days lol, back on the Kreuzer issue, I'm kinda glad I haven't decided to go with him now, I forgot about his heart scare, and then I remembered his groin issues and foot issues, and now he's over 30, so is Goldy but at least he's pretty durable.

Patch
Guest
Patch

Lloyd and Sicily is a massive D1+2 combo and I like it. Goldy an astute pick this year I feel.

Lekdog
Admin

Welcome aboard mate! Piece of advice is to grab an intensedebate account for the comments, makes it easier to track responses

I think you've nailed you first draft here. Roberton the question mark but I like a team without pods for pods sake.

Tyruddanaut
Guest
Tyruddanaut

It's worth mentioning that Greene, Sicily and Merrett have been set-back during pre-season via injury. All (except Sicily) are still not in training Your team features a lot of sub-premiums (less than 500k Fwd/Def and 575k Mid/Ruck) and few uber-premiums (600k+). Goldstein, Williams, Greene, Martin and Merrett are examples of players who could be fiddled with. I have had all but Goldy in my team, but here's why I changed them. Dusty – Will likely be played up forward more often, or at an equal rate to this year due to injury risk and midfield depth at Richmond Goldstein –… Read more »

I wouldn't avoid high price rookies. They average more than those outside top 10 with more success over 60 "in general". Walsh this yr is a near known rookie that should get you 60+ at most conservative estimate. For me, Walsh, Setterfield, Collins are good selections. Nick Blakey starting to put hand up today and is a watch now.

If we are lucky, we get to fill rookies with cheap options but the odd top 10 draftee is worth the time.

KeenButClueless
Guest
KeenButClueless

The great ruck dilemma! I think I agree with the many posts that say we will ultimately want to get a Grundy Gawn combo. I also agree that the potential new roles for Melbourne makes Gawn’s opening price look prohibitive. If you take Goldy, I think you are condemning yourself to never have Gawn. You might end up with the third best Ruck, but possibly not the best combo. If you take Kreuzer or Longer, you will probably have them as stepping stones to get to Gawn. I think that’s a better option than Goldy. But there might be a… Read more »

Not sure how you can explain that people starting gold will not be able to get gawn

Russty_

It's more difficult than you think huh, there are always more important issues to attend to….than sideways trades, it seems..and you usually need to do 2 trades to make it happen.

Patch
Guest

The ruck line will be chopped and changed a lot this pre-season and it's painful. I'm still worried by Pruess' impact on Gawn – I reckon they both play

neil demons delight
Guest

It's pretty obvious at the dees training Pruess will play forward like Cox but the biggest mover at the Dees is Hore. Coaches are mighty impressed with him A ranging beautiful kick he will find it hard to get a gig but Smiley is in my team

Shhhhhh on Fort!

Godd_Toldstein
Guest

North have the last bye. Perfect time to bring gawn in. Start any other ruckman and you'll still need 2 trades to get gawn in. Imo goldy could close the price gap between himself and gawn

I just saw too that if Fort does start, he first two games are potentially against Grundy and Gawn….

Hi All

First cut prior to preseason form and injuries,

$95,700 in bank

Def: Laird, Witherden, Williams, Burton, Logue, Scrimshaw (Wiliamson, Wigg)
Mid: Cripps, Fyfe, Kelly, Bont, McCluggage, Hanne, Liber, Walsh (Constable, Bewley, Hind)
Ruc: Kreuzer, English, (De Koning)
For: Heeney, J Kennedy, Curnow, Greene, Wright, Rankine (Blakey, Setterfield)

Ja191
Guest
Ja191

you need to address your ruck situation. You can make a case for leaving one of grundy/gawn out but you definitely need one of them

Patch

A lot of brave picks in McCluggage, Curnow and Burton – I'd personally dial one or two of them back but this time of year is where speculation shines

Agreed, I'm curious to see how the new rule plays out in JLT but won't be going less than 4, even contemplating 5 to bring in another kick-in specialist like Witherden. That will depend on how the rule plays out in practice.

Hey Gator, I read an article in the Herald Sun that said right now it's between Fort and Stanley for the Cats, and considering Stanley started out as a fwd he could be more suited down there, hopefully the Cats will give Darcy a go and he does well, if he starts round 1, I might start him R2 and whack another big gun on another line.

gator59

Yeah i'm thinking along the same line Russty with Fort,, But would you be game enough to start Grundy and Gawn and them having the same bye round and fork out $1.4 mill and set and forget

Absolutely mate, we only need the best 18 scores on the park for that week, and so what if ya only lose one bye round if it doesn't work out?
The rest of the year will work out with the 2 best rucks in you corner..but other lines would obviously suffer…I was set on Kreuzer, but am unsure about that now, and opted for Grundy / Goldy for now.

I don't see Gawn scoring the same as last year. Think he'll still be top 2 ruck, but about 10 points shaved off his ave. So around 115-120. I see Goldy increasing his ave by 5-10, so around 110-115. Ergo, similar output for $150k less. Grundy my clear no1 pick and happy to stump up for him.

Good to see you back again Hotly. I have been to many dees training and Pruess is being groomed to be a big cox. I don't think it will dramatically effect Gawn and it may not even work. The new rules will help Brayshaw more than any other demon .I am so tempted to make him M5 instead of Harmes cheers mate NDD

The ruck debate will continue but a few years back when Gawn went down Pederson Watts and Tom McDonald took over with success. The first two are no longer dees but McDonald is. With the grooming of Weideman as a ruckman progressing. and his undoubted forward talent coupled with the proven relief ruckwork of McDonald I cannot see Pruess taking over from Weideman They are trialing it but really he will be a Casey Ruckman – however Gawn will be rested interstate games Only my observation

gator59
Guest
gator59

What !!!!! Watts is gone !!!! How !!!! When !!!! Why !!!! The number 1 draft pick that's as handy as a hip pocket in a pair of undies…. Ahh I see now why Port got him to take over the no 1 ruck roll after Ryder, Lycett and The Hoff retire

On another one Neil it's great to see Shelley Scott sharing the Captains roll with Daisy…. She's the daughter of one of my mates Peter that I grew up and played footy with….. The little dairy farmer from Gerangamete about 10 minutes south east of Colac who would've ever thunked that hey

I doubt that Preuss would have knocked back offers from 4 or more AFL clubs to play VFL Neil. I know you love Max and want him to be #2 most selected supercoach ruck but it's more likely he'll be 4 or 5.

Seems the trend is picking a bunch of mid price defenders with the expectation that rule changes will bump up their output. What happens if that doesn't pan out?

Iv'e made the same observation Rick … I'm still looking at pure guns down back.. In fact i'm going pure Guns'n' Rooks all over

Holty01
Guest
Holty01

Yeah Rick seems to be the case. My back premos consist of any of the top 12 from last year who took the most kick ins. I’m even considering Short as well. I think the new kickin rule might benefit him the most. Hurn could be a big winner as well with the new rule

gator59
Guest
gator59

Hard to say who's going to benefit the most on this one Holty… there are so many that play on from the kick in

neil demons delight
Guest

you will run out of coin though Gator. Its confusing when discussing prems and mid pricers/ Derek said he had 12 but I counted less Triggs version is best up to 250 rookie 500 midprice over that are prem Was cogniglio a prem last year? no — a mid pricer to start. Also I notice people saying I am counting so and so as a prem Rubbish either above 500 and a prem or not Yeo was 499 early doors —a mid pricer So Rick and Gator will you make it with guns n rooks ?

Rick Grimes
Guest
Rick Grimes

I'm looking at Lloyd, Laird and Whitfield in dec at this stage. 5 x uber premium Mids. Grundy and Goldy. 3 x $500+ forwards. Rest rookies. Have coin to buy a couple of pricier rooks if they look value. Overall happy with 13 definite keepers and few question marks.

Derek
Guest
Derek

I think Keepers instead of Guns.

Witho is a keeper in my opinion, someone you expect to start and finish the year with.

Everyone else is a cash cow.

ZWilliams is a keeper. He isn’t a cash cow, not cheap enough.

Green is a keeper if he starts

Kruzer I’m not sure about

Godd_Toldstein

What price do you consider a mid price defender to be?

Rick Grimes
Guest
Rick Grimes

Witherden would be prime example. Mid priced to average 85. Could go to 100 average this year, maybe. But it's a punt and you might be stuck with mid priced output.

Phat Phuc
Guest
Phat Phuc

Thats a bit harsh on Alex Rick he's only played 30 games and has a career ave of 16 kicks p/game. I'll be picking him before Laird who's best season ave for kicks is also 16 (2018) but a career ave of only 10.5.
Third year breakout for Alex. Laird increased his ave by 34 in his 3rd year Witherden could do the same just by playing on at every kick-in.

Godd_Toldstein
Guest
Godd_Toldstein

Yeah I don't know about that as fatty said it's withers 3rd year. To have an 85 avg that early on is pretty good. Doesn't need to do too much more to get into the top 6 spot

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

I agree Rick. That to me is a risky business. For me, it is simply keeping the rule changes in mind, and yet still selecting players purely on merit. If you are down to 2-3 players who you are tossing up over to fill a spot and one of those 3 has the most to benefit from a rule change, then perhaps then do you take that into consideration and select that player who gets most benefit. By wildly selecting mid pricers solely because they could benefit from rule changes is absolute madness. Cheers Rick.

One such defender which comes to mind is Luke Ryan. He does a lot of kicking in without kicking it to himself and playing on.

Hey Richard, It's all role for those two. Both shown they can tear it up if given midfield time and will be ones to monitor in regards to where their respective coaches play them. Gray is likely to do better if both given the midfield role but dunkley has shown great scoring ability averaging 115.7 from round 15 onwards last year and is in my team right now + may be a bit of a pod

Patch / Lek / Community Any love for jack Steele? Upside – he is 23 -he will play in the guts and only the guts -averaged a massive 111.7 in his last 9 games – possesses from my quick research most of the statistics in Jocks “next supercoach beast” except for disposals but his tackling makes up for those points – $515k Downside – was used in a tagging role a couple of times which generally isn’t supercoach friendly but actually helped him I believe because he got more tackles – had a poor start to the year

neil demons delight

Hadnt considered him xman but those last 9 game stats are impressive. Wait and see prospect I think, especially being a Saint.

Nice point-out Xman
2017 he ave 90.5 for 1st 7-games (only 2x Sub-80) and 95 over last 7-games
2018 he ave 82.7 for 1st 7-games (4x sub-80) and 117 over last 7-games
Not on my starting team radar because he costs 512k and might drop by 50-100k early but, he averages 7.5 tackles a game at the saints as a tagger so as long as the saints continue their abstract midfield strategy of losing clearances he could be worth a look after the byes.

GloryDays94

Will be an interesting one to watch early. If he plays a proper MID role then could be a decent POD

Holty01
Guest
Holty01

He is on my watch list Xman. I have always been big on him and have mentioned him on several occasions. A tackling machine who gets plenty of the contested ball. Problem is, I don’t trust the Saints. He was dropped last year after he was leading the Saints tackling and won more contested ball then any other Saint. I think it has something to do with his engine as he spends a lot of time on the bench. I’ll watch him in the JLT but I guess that doesn’t mean a lot as he smashed out a 170 sc… Read more »

Might have to rethink Gawn Melbourne just trialled Gawn as a forward with Pruess rucking Both starred with Gawn's marking a highlight. Took a ripper over Frost. They are tinkering with a forward line of Joel Smith McDonald Weideman and Gawn with Pruess now rucking enough for me, you guys appear to be right , welcome Goldy NDD

Thanks for the intel Neil. I am not starting Gawn this year. Its Grundy and Goldstein for me at this stage. As you know, Goldy has no Pruess and Daw to deal with and should do the bulk of the rucking for North. He is super consistent and great value at $548K. Set and forget! Will never touch Petracca again after he shat all over me last year. The fact that he has injury issues means I can just forget him. Cheers mate.

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Have you given Westhoff any thought? He is an interesting one. He has RUC/FWD eligibility. He will do very little ruck work with Lycett and Paddy Ryder sharing those duties. Westhoff could play that roaming type role where he collects pozzies around the ground and kick a few goals as well. He could easily average 100+ and may be a very strategic R2 option. Same price as Goldy. He is on my watchlist to see what role he has during the JLT.

We are all aware of the snide comment 'Points Chaser' that is leveled at people who trade in players that start with a bang, personally I think it's just sour grapes from those who don't have the courage to make the same move. If you look at it equitably anybody who starts the #1 to #6 player in any position is also technically 'Points Chasing' only they're doing so based on performances 6-months ago rather than performances from 3-weeks ago.

It's a sensitive subject because sometimes we all have to do it when we realise we've chosen the wrong guy and the guy we didn't choose is going nuts on the scoreboard.

Spot on Russty. I did not start with Sicily last year but with Petracca instead. Became very clear after the first few rounds I had a serious problem. I realised I had to get rid of Petracca and secure Sicily as soon as I could. I think Sicily was in my team by round 6 and Petracca was punted soon thereafter. That move saved my season and ensured i remained competitive in most leagues and seeing some finals action. That is not points chasing, that is team management. Chasing in form players that you do not have to boost your… Read more »

I think you did the right thing there mate, I think the point chasing issue, or debate stems around rookies, do you bring the 117k rookie in after he has 3 good weeks in a row and jumps to 195k?…maybe not cause they can fall in a heap after that, their high initial scores being attributed to excitement of their debut and adrenaline.
I've done that before, but won't do it again..can really damage your year.

Withers looks good. Personally I wouldn't pick a 200k rookie. They might make a few extra points to start off with but the cheaper ones will make you more cash and allow you to upgrade quicker offsetting those early points

Nothing wrong with going for overall rank, but ultimately 99.999 % of us will be more concerned about how we go in or leagues, against people we know..because that's ultimately more fun, when the whole overall rank thing hits us in the face with reality.
Personally I'm an, enjoying the journey kinda guy as opposed to , the final result…except for Leagues, when it can go up until the final game.
There's plenty of point playing for whatever you want to play for…why exactly are you making a point of only playing for rank?….you sound like someone familiar from last year.

1.Fyfe, Whitfield, Blakely, Witherden, DEF rook and 40k
2.Lloyd/Sicily, Whitfield, Blakely, Witherden, MID rook and 55 or 85k
3.Lloyd, Sicily, Whitfield, Roberton, MID rook and 105k
4.Lloyd/Sicily, Whitfield, WItherden, Roberton, MID rook and 225 or 255k
5.Lloyd/Sicily, Whitfield, WItherden, Roberton, Miles and 5 or 35k
How would you rank these?

Hi Roy, I don't actually rate Whitfield that highly, he's still a bit inconsistent…everyone wants to end up with Lloyd but he's damn expensive.
Defenders I like this year are Hurn, Witherden, Williams, maybe even Roberton depending on how his pre-season goes…he can at least deliver 80 + if he's back to his old self.
Blakely is one to watch in the pre-season too I think.

Thanks Russty. I was just talking about Kreuzer yesterday about the high injury risk he is. And now he has gone under the knife again. Just not worth risking, and that goes for Mumford as well. I am prepared to fork out the coin and go Goldy at R2. Not touching guys like Longer. Way too risky for mine.

TOPHAWK
Guest
TOPHAWK

I love playing around with my team like that. By whacking Fort into R2 it frees up a bloody fortune of cash! Starting Fort at R2 would require a serious strategy and luck to pull it off. Let's say you are planning to get Mumford in going into round 3,4, or 5 (Suspended Rd 1 and 2) Mummy is doing all the right things and is fit to play. Do you run Fort at R2 for the first 5 weeks and grab his points and use him as a short term cash cow? Then when Mummy returns in round 3… Read more »

TOPHAWK1

Its just a pipe dream. There are just too many if and buts, and variables in play. If Fort gets dropped in round 2 or Mummy does not play round 3 you are pretty much screwed. There are smarter moves. Just thought it was a bit of fun throwing it out there.

Skindog
Guest

Of course mate, look like a champion if you pull it off, but mainly a fool for anyone who gives it a go! But I’ve decided, for the moment at least, to go a cheaper option, 🀷‍♂️

Hi community,
Here's a first draft
DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, S. Collins, Wilkie, (Hore, Wigg)
MID: Cripps, Fyfe, Kelly, D. Martin, B. Smith (WB), Setterfield, Constable, Bewley, (E. Smith, Hind, Hayes)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn, (Sweet)
FWD: Dangerfield, Dunkley, Wingard, Blakey, Corbett, Cavarra, (M. Parker, Wilkinson)

Thoughts? Would love to find a way to get in D. Smith, Heeney, Blakely and Miles but not sure how.

Cheers

Dice_real

Get Heeney in for Wingard and if that's Hayes from bulldogs he'll score well if he gets a game…so will Smith

Hey mate, heard good things about hayes and smith from the dogs so they're in for the time being, hopefully they can make us some good cash!

TOPHAWK1
Guest
TOPHAWK1

Hi Dylan. That is a decent side. The only thing that concerns me is your high spend in the back line which has exposed your depth (lack of) in your midfield. You have 4 premos back there. For me that is 2-3 too many. Perhaps look to start with Lloyd and Whitfield, and aim to grab Laird and Sicily as the season progresses. I really think you need to spend more $ and secure one more uber premo mid. (Eg Oliver, Z Merrett, M Crouch, Macrae-expensive etc). Most points come from the midfielders and you need to be strong there… Read more »

Dylan
Guest
Dylan

Thanks for the feedback tophawk1! I think you might be on to something there, I'm thinking sicily can wait as you said and I will downgrade to get one of those mids you are talking about. Good luck this season to you too!

GOAT___23
Guest
GOAT___23

Hey Dylan. I really like your team mate. I wouldnt reduce your defensive premos to 2 though. I myself am running with Lloyd, Sicily, Witherden and Williams. Defence is going to be huge this year, especially with the new kick in rule, and someone like Sicily who already takes a lot of kick ins will benefit even further from that. He will only improve this year and I can see him averaging 105+ again. You dont want to be left behind the pack in terms of point scoring after only the second round.

Dylan
Guest
Dylan

I'm now running with Lloyd, Laird, Sicily and Blakely with only 4 mid premos and 3 fwds as I cant bring myself to move on any of the first three and i like the look of blakely as a pod. Agree the defence could be really strong this year!

Rivo
Guest
Rivo

Ripping team Dylan. Agree with a few comments here that the backs look too loaded for now. Consider swapping out Sicily or Whitfield for an undervalued mid promo like Merrett, Crouch or Dusty.

Dylan
Guest
Dylan

I've currently swapped whitfield for blakely, but im still not sure i would be able to get a uber premo if i now swap blakely to a rookie. Had merrett in and out of side but his susceptability to a tag is worrying… any other options you would suggest around that price? already have dusty

Whitey
Guest
Whitey

Hi guys, been a great start to the year for the community, a lot of positive criticism when people put teams up which is great to hear. I feel my team is lacking a bit of edge or creativity, like to hear what people think.

Def: Lloyd, Simpson, Andrews, Williams

Mid: McRae, Cripps, Kelly, Neale, Merrett

Ruck: Grundy, Naismith

Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Smith,

Rest rookies, have allowed for a 160k rookie on each line, understand Naismith is an unknown but we will know more come JLT.

Cheers in advance.

Your laird point on losing points by not gaining marks from kick ins makes no sense at all, the ball travels 15m to a player then they are rewarded a mark regardless if inside or outside square. You're saying all ppl that kick in won't change their game plan, may be so but as soon as their foot touches or goes over the line they gain that possession.

Ryan doesn't need to carry the ball 10m then kick to gain the points, as I said he only needs a foot on/over the line and the stat counts.

Bob

I'm predicting your prediction is wrong. New kick in rule will be huge for some players. A matter of picking the right ones.

If Wines shoulder is serious then Gray will get more mid time.

Xman
Guest
Xman

Yes but that doesn’t convince me, Heeney should up his average again due to experience/age where as gray you would expect him to slow down. “Gray will get more mid time” could mean anything really. Not trying to be rude I’m just curious if anyone can put together a good case for it.

Holty01
Guest
Holty01

Gray for me. Has proven in the past he can be elite. Heeney still to prove that. Age hasn’t slowed Gray down yet plus he is a smart player so will find the ball irrelevant of age.

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

Gray has less to contend with in the Power midfield as well. He is arguably their best mid.

Sydney has Heeney, Kennedy, Parker, and then the likes of Mills, Hewett, Florent, Papley going through their and now maybe even Clarke who they got from North.

BomTellchambers
Guest
BomTellchambers

Gray is one of the best players in the competition. Heeney has the potential to be one of the best players in the competition, but it won't happen in 2019……Only thing that holds back Gray (as far as SC goes) is playing deep forward, as a mid only he would average 110+
