The Panic Room is back for 2019, baby!

If this is your first time in the Panic Room (welcome) what is it that goes on in here? Just me talking nonsense really, and occasionally pointing you towards helpful SuperCoach tips and advice (by other people, obviously) that will hopefully make your year a bit easier. There will be team and rookie news, breakevens, and for those that like to play Draftstars daily fantasy I’ll provide a few tips for a chosen game. 

It has been hectic as ever in Jock Reynolds HQ. Some fantastic articles/analysis has hit the site this preseason. Give the website a visit, favourite it, make it your homepage, whatever you have to do because the content will be dropping thick and fast throughout the year and you don’t want to miss a moment of it.

It’s been a massive preseason, community. Good luck for the year ahead!

The News

Patch will have my head for this but I’m going to say the following – DO NOT PANIC. Yes the first bounce between Richmond and Carlton is only hours away but we’ve got a rolling lockout folks. This means that ONLY the players from those sides need to be locked away come 7:20pm. The rest of the teams will be announced tonight and Sunday squads will be finalised Friday evening before the Collingwood v Geelong game. If you have a rookie in a Sunday squad named on the bench wait until teams are confirmed before you go ripping up the side you’ve poured your blood, sweat, and tears into.

For tonight… We’ve got first gamers in Sam Walsh, Mick Gibbons, and Noah Balta. The cut price Will Setterfield has also made the, uh… cut. Nic Newman will make his club debut along with Mitch McGovern and Fas. At the Tigers, Mav Weller and Tom Lynch will make their club debuts. No Kruuuuuuze for the Blues.   

***UPDATE***

The selection table was fairly kind to us last night. A lot of the rookies that we had across the JLT appeared in round 1 sides. Let’s break it down by position:

DEF: Jordan Clark, Marty Hore, Connor Rozee (FWD), Xavier Duursma (MID), Jack Scrimshaw, Callum Wilkie (Sunday), Sam Collins (Sunday), Chris Burgess (FWD, Sunday), Brandon Zerk-Thatcher (Sunday)

MID: Tom Atkins, Charlie Constable, Willem Drew (FWD), Zak Butters, Bailey Smith, Chayce Jones (MID) Nick Hind (Sunday), Jackson Hately (Sunday), Tarryn Thomas (Sunday)

RUCK: Matthew Flynn

FWD: Gryan Miers, Nick Blakey, Jack Lukosius (Sunday), Ben King (Sunday), Lachie Schultz (Sunday), Bailey Scott (Sunday)

The trick is picking the right ones! It’s a positive we have so many as it allows correctional trades in a few weeks. 

In other big selection news. Pie Jamie Elliot will play his first match in almost two years. Buddy is back and will play and so will Jack Steven. Scott Lycett has been named in the ruck for Power with Ryder at full-forward. Brad Crouch will return after injury wiped out his 2018 season. There’s been some interest in new Swan Ryan Clarke after his strong JLT, he’s been named on a wing. Stef Martin has beat out Archie Smith to lead Brissy’s ruck division. No JJK at the Eagles, but Tom Hickey will make his club debut. 

On Sunday, the Suns recruitment drive of handing out flyers at Surfers Paradise has paid off with a potential of eight new faces. North aren’t far behind with potentially six new names among their ins. No Josh Kelly at the Giants which is good news for Gonigliog and Taranto owners hoping for a fast start. Shiel makes his debut at the Bombers. At the Dockers, #fyfeislyfe and they’ve turned to *checks notes* Cam McCarthy…

If you jump on the site right now the SuperCoach Stats trial is on for all teams and will end after round 2. You’ll see a bunch of icons around, this is what they mean:

The House of Evil 

The House will be open in round 3 for all your breakeven needs! Why is it called the House of Evil? Well rookies that have a low or negative breakeven that will jump in price come with a free frogurt (that’s good!). Premiums that have a high breakeven that will see their price free falling come with Potassium Benzoate (that’s bad!)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

The Lock makes its triumphant return this year after I managed to put the mozz on most players I recommended last year… let’s hope this year goes better! For round 1 I’m taking the easy lay-up, Patrick Dangerfield is a god damn freak and, bafflingly. is only in 69 (nice) per cent of sides. This is 135% less than it should be. He’s averaged over 112 in 6 of past 7 seasons and warmed up with 59 possessions across his two JLT games. With Gazza earmarked to be spending more time in the forward 50 this year, the long stints at full forward Patrick experienced last year look like a thing of the past. Lock. Him. In.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

If you fancy a go at Draftstars they’ve got a YUGGGE 100k contest on tonight. There’s also a free tournament, so don’t go crazy. Single game slates like tonights are tough, a lot needs to go right to get over the line. I’ve had quick look and below is my take for tonight. 

RUCKS

Not much to get excited about here. It’ll be Nank (13.9k) v Phillips (10k) and honestly, neither have great records against the opposing team or at the ‘G. Nank had problems last year leaking points to opposition rucks and while Phillips won’t blow the doors off the place, 10k is affordable enough. Harry McKay (9.8k) is also there but yeah, nah.

DEF

Richmond usually leave medium defenders alone and Kade Simpson (14.6k) loves playing the Tigers. Averaging 114 in past 4 and 106 in his past 5 at the MCG. Nic Newman (11.7k) is another that loves the ‘G, averaging 97 in his past 5 there. Vlastuin and Houli are at similar price points (11.3k/12.1k) but they may not have a lot of work to do tonight. For value, Broad (7k) and Cuningham (7.9k) are options after strong preseasons.

MID

Plenty of value here. Setterfield (9k), Walsh (9.9k), and Gibbons (7.5k) are all under 10k tonight and Zac Fisher is just over 10k. Draftstars awards +4 for a tackle and for that reason Jack Graham (9.5k) makes for an interesting pivot off those guys. Dusty loves this round 1 fixture, scoring 139 and 110 in his past 2 and you can almost lock in 30 touches and two goals from Patrick Cripps (18.2k). If you want to get funky, Marc Murphy averages 114 at the MCG since 2017.

FWD

Noah Balta (6.9k) could be anything tonight. Can see Lynch being eased into it so Balta could see some R2 action. Jack Higgins will roll through the midfield at times, 10.3k seems too cheap for him. The Blues, unsurprisingly, rank in the top 3 for both conceding scoring shots to opposition forward and conceding marks inside 50. If you’re an absolute madman you could look at Tom Lynch (11.6k) who has terrorised Carlton over the years, but I reckon his inclusion means more time up the field for Jack Riewoldt (13.2k), making him a safer pick.

My side:

We’ve made it, community! No more footy-less weekends until September. Good luck to all and remember your ol’ mate Kev if you walk away 50k richer

    SC_Kev7 · 21/03/2019 at 14:51

    Woohoo free money!

Undypuncher · 21/03/2019 at 14:52

Do we take noah bolta because he is playing or leave him out if we have others earmarked and hope they get picked??

    SC_Kev7 · 21/03/2019 at 15:28

    Could get squeezed out before a price rise when Caddy/Grigg return. Leave him out and make him a correctional trade if a) he kills it, and b) role is assured when those guys come back

      DEESNUTSRBIG · 21/03/2019 at 17:48

      Solid advice.
      Riewoldt/Lynch/Caddy playing up FWD = bye bye Balta
      Balta is a short sighted selection at the moment, injuries can happen so before R3 is the time to reassess.

        gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 18:20

        Balta will have a run in the ruck at times which should help

Richie Porte · 21/03/2019 at 14:55

Hello everyone,
B Crouch, Libby, Bradshaw or Dusty.

Laird or Simmo?

Teddy021 · 21/03/2019 at 15:13

I'm starting to panick hahaha. Good luck everyone! Making my debut in the JR Inner Sanctum this season, can't wait! Will need tons of luck to backup last season's result haha.

    SC_Kev7 · 21/03/2019 at 15:29

    Welcome, Teddy. Best of luck to ya 🙂

      Teddy021 · 21/03/2019 at 15:46

      Thanks mate! 😊

    UpBeat · 21/03/2019 at 16:34

    It's awesome you're here Teddy, we don't often get SC royalty here so any tips or info you can give is greatly appreciated by me at least. good luck mate

      Teddy021 · 21/03/2019 at 17:06

      Far from loyalty mate! Just need a bit of luck through the year and hope for no injuries/suspensions!

      Will help where I can!

        UpBeat · 21/03/2019 at 17:21

        didn't you finish 5th last year? that makes you royalty mate, cheers.

    COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 22:29

    Best of Luck Teddy hopefully you can go even better this season!

The mighty wokkas · 21/03/2019 at 15:35

Alright so team just about finalised except….. I have 70k remaining and don’t have Walsh or Collins. Do I upgrade a rookie to them or just keep the spare cash. I could trade hately for Walsh or scrimshaw to Collins. Cheers any feedback appreciated

    Sharkmove_King · 21/03/2019 at 17:24

    I'd do Hately to Walsh personally

Chilli · 21/03/2019 at 15:41

Just made up a league if any one wants to piece together a fairly competitive one 390382 – good luck for the season all!

    I'm in Chilli! Go Mooses!

COREYSC · 21/03/2019 at 15:50

Jonathon Brown’s side has 10 mid pricers, the definition of the ultimate Mid Price Madness!
Hibberd, McGrath, Francis, B.Smith, Rockliff, Libba, Lycett, Dahlhaus, T.Greene and McCarthy

    redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 06:21

    His team was rated on the fox SC show (I think the guy was last years champ, but missed the intro’s) as a 7 out of 10.

    I expected him to say 5 out of 10 and even that would have been generous.

      COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 13:12

      Or less then 5 out of 10😂

TheWizardOfOzz · 21/03/2019 at 15:57

Hey guys, is there a JR Community group code? Good luck to y'all this year!

    SC_Kev7 · 21/03/2019 at 16:32

    710443, Oz

Dave · 21/03/2019 at 16:09

Would love to hear people's thoughts on this…

Lloyd, libba and $26k in bank
Or
Macrae, m.hore (Melbourne def rookie) and $127k in bank

Option 2 leaves my backline pretty weak with Hurn, Williams, smith then rookies and an odd amount of money left over. Cant really use it to upgrade anyone as my only midpricers are the 3 I've mentioned here

    SC_Kev7 · 21/03/2019 at 16:36

    Depends on your structure mate. Libba not the worst midprice punt out there. But if you’re taking risks elsewhere go Macrae/Hore (if named)

      Dave · 21/03/2019 at 18:11

      I could use that extra cash to upgrade a N.Hind to cousins? Or better to keep the cash?

      Dave · 21/03/2019 at 18:17

      Or could even use that cash to go Lloyd instead of Hurn? Hmmmm decisions

Dice_real · 21/03/2019 at 16:11

What's everyone's thoughts on the best defender under $550,000??

    Michael · 21/03/2019 at 16:35

    Whitfield. Not reading much onto the apparent half forward role

    Sharkmove_King · 21/03/2019 at 17:27

    Yeah Whitfield. One of the best wingers in the competition, who was All-Australian half back last season will not play half forward

Andrew · 21/03/2019 at 16:20

Hi everyone,

Gawn, Billings, mid rookie or Goldy, Greene, Libba?

    Michael · 21/03/2019 at 16:57

    The one with Gawn

TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 16:20

Hey guys, I asked this earlier but what are our thoughts on Scrimshaws JS? Obviously that decision could be made for me at selection but this is assuming he’s picked.
Atm it’s either him and Macrae or Collins and fyfe. Which would you go with?

Danners · 21/03/2019 at 16:21

Appropriate use of GIF there Kev! Good luck community in your Supercoach endeavours this season, hopefully the one year I go GnR isn't full of regret. Thought I might as well fill up my leagues so here is a league code if anyone is interested. Open to all

League Name: Community Crew #2
Code: 706084

Thanks and good luck

    Luke · 21/03/2019 at 18:02

    I just joined and filled last position. Thanks 👍

Michael · 21/03/2019 at 16:34

Decided on 3 mid pricers. Williams, B Smith and Libba. Seem the safest

    KSinny · 21/03/2019 at 16:50

    Same here, seems pretty reasonable and should all score well enough

    Luke · 21/03/2019 at 18:03

    Yes b crouch also worth a risk but can't run them all

BlueBaggerJosh · 21/03/2019 at 16:48

Thoughts on SPS? really think he will break out this year to an 85-90 average.

benodonohue · 21/03/2019 at 16:50

Blakey or Burgess @ F6

    Doc_1 · 21/03/2019 at 18:12

    Both bench material I suspect.

    I’d have setterfield, drew, Balta, petrucelle on field before them.

Steeeve · 21/03/2019 at 17:19

Last one for my team:
Neale or Macrae. If Neale I'll just pocket the cash for any rookie corrections…

Will · 21/03/2019 at 17:23

Moore or Ridley ?

    Luke · 21/03/2019 at 18:04

    Moore

    DavidC · 22/03/2019 at 08:06

    Ridley, Moore will be injured by round 3.

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 11:42

      Moore if u have Burgess

Doc_1 · 21/03/2019 at 17:27

Laird and Collins (trying to make it Ridley) or Williams and Smith??

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 17:40

    Have you thought about Rozee instead of Collins.

      Doc_1 · 21/03/2019 at 17:54

      To be honest hadn’t.
      What do you think of his JS. I’m a little worried.

      Would have me running a 2-0-4 defence (Laird, Hurn, Rozee/Collins, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma with Burgess and Hore on the pine. Moore insurance up forward to swing back if mass casualties)

      Would mean I have all 4 port rooks.
      I guess on the upside surely they can’t drop them all!

        Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 18:27

        Apparently there's 7 Port players to come back in Doc, so that's a bit of a worry.

Derek · 21/03/2019 at 17:42

Imagine if we had to fit Titch into our teams!

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 17:44

    I’ll fit him in when he makes an early return in round 20 😉

    Sharkmove_King · 21/03/2019 at 18:07

    I thought him going down (obviously tragic for footy) made SC more interesting, but I reckon if he was there it would be better. Surely teams couldn't afford all the 600k+ ubers, would have been fascinating to see who people left out

Blueboys · 21/03/2019 at 17:47

Is Fasolo someone to consider? Same price as expensive rookie but with experience and a reasonable track record when fit.

BobbyGee · 21/03/2019 at 17:48

Moore down to Balta to free up cash for Burgess-Scrimshaw and Lycett-Dunkley???

    Sharkmove_King · 21/03/2019 at 18:03

    I like Moore, but those trades look like money well spent!

    Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 18:33

    yes mate, don't rate moore at all myself

    KSinny · 21/03/2019 at 18:44

    Sounds great

Sharkmove_King · 21/03/2019 at 18:08

Scrimshaw will play!

Doc_1 · 21/03/2019 at 18:23

Fyfe (M3), B.Crouch (M6), B.Smith (D3). Or M.Crouch (M4), Walsh,(M6), Laird (D1)

hedski · 21/03/2019 at 18:24

Constable, Clark, Atkins and Miers all named for cats, no pies debutantes.
All 4 port rookies named, no Bewley for Freo.
Hore is in, Collins and Burgess, Petracelle all in.
Parker named on field for Sunday.

    Connor · 21/03/2019 at 18:34

    Swap Hind for Bewley?

      hedski · 21/03/2019 at 18:50

      Hind didn't show much scoring power in JLT Connor, I'm staying away, hopefully Bewley gets held back for a while so he can be a downgrade target.

      Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:03

      Probably don't have both…Hind wasn't impressive in jlt

        Connor · 21/03/2019 at 19:11

        Currently have Bewley but he hasn't been named – otherwise who else (already have Constable, Scott, Atkins and Gibbons)

          Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:20

          Drew, Butters…Put Balta in in the fwds, or Petrucelle, or Parker.

    Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:17

    Clark and constables JS?
    I think I want scrimshaw over Clark and gibbons for constable based on JS

      Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:24

      Not sure mate on the Cat's rook's js, I'm leaving Scrimshaw out for now, if Collins spuds I'll bring him in if Scrimshaw does well, gibbons, I just turfed him for Constable

    Good luck Trig, got you first up in Finn's draft league.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2019 at 20:52

      Game on.

      How does the bench work?

      As JJK not playing do you get the bench score or do I need to sub on a player to replace JJK??

      Backline going ok. 😏

        Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 21:01

        Bench is only one emergency Trig, the lowest scoring spud of the week.

hedski · 21/03/2019 at 18:40

Teams have dropped and it looks like no last minute tampering required for my squad, haven't touched it for 3 days so pretty happy right now.
Only thorny point for me is that I have to pick Burgess over Scrimshaw but that's not the end of the world.
Shout out to Patch Lek BVC Damo Kev and everyone else on this site for all the hard yards this preseason.
Now let's get into the real stuff, not long til kickoff.
Good luck to everyone with your teams, looking forward to coming up against a lot of good coaches from around the site in leagues during the season. 👍🍻🍻

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 18:42

    Yep

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 18:52

    I reckon wait till he's played 2 games Russ, and see how that goes.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/03/2019 at 08:01

    Glad u put an "l" in there Russ 😂

Fisherdann · 21/03/2019 at 18:49

Gibbons, Hind or Bewley?

    7up · 21/03/2019 at 18:52

    Gibbons

    Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 18:52

    Gibbons

Brian · 21/03/2019 at 18:49

Burgess or Parker

    Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 18:52

    Burgess for the dpp, you should be able to fit in both though

Holty01 · 21/03/2019 at 18:52

Good luck with the season everyone.

Henry.Riveria · 21/03/2019 at 18:53

I know team sheets don't mean much, but seeing billings starting on the wing gives me tingles!!!

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:02

    Hoff also named on the wing

Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 18:55

danger into oliver or cripps into danger

    hedski · 21/03/2019 at 18:58

    I'm going Cripps into one of Danger/Grundy/Gawn, hopefully Cripps does the job.

      Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 19:00

      yeah currently have that locked in, lets hope for a big one from crippa hedski

Jack · 21/03/2019 at 18:55

Ive got a last minute query for you all tempted by going in without gawn

Todd Goldstein:

– season averages of 113, 113, 106, 128, 109 before a two year form slump of 95 and 105
– releases an article mid june last year on beating a two year battle with mental health (potentially contributing to the two year slump)
– following that article, his avg from round 9 last year (post article) to the completion of the year was 111
– herald sun article december 2018 reports goldstein comes back to preseason 5 kg lighter and fitter then ever
– no preuss at the roos
– the mid stocks at the roos have been greatly bolsted improving the chance of hitouts to advantage
– scores 117 in his only jlt hit out… in 62% game time
– Dean Cox was 31 in 2014 when he went from an 88 avg the year before back to a 122 point average… Goldstein is currently 30
– going goldy over gawn allows me to turn my measly mid pricer into #Fyfeislife

food for thought

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:01

    I'm tipping Goldy to get back to his best this year…if it turns out Grundy is number 1 again, can easily trade up at some point.

    Pat · 21/03/2019 at 19:03

    Exactly the reason why I have him at R2…

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 20:48

    Who is your R1?

      Grundyyyy

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:08

Barney · 21/03/2019 at 19:01

Higgins as F4?? 15 min to decide :/

Harrison · 21/03/2019 at 19:03

Brad crouch M5 & Darcy Moore D4 (swing option)

Or

Brayshaw M5 & scrimshaw D5

    hedski · 21/03/2019 at 19:15

    Brimshaw

      Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:29

      I think brayshaw and crouch may avg near the same & Moore has the JS over scrimshaw. The first for me

TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 19:05

Any last minute leagues for me to join?

Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:06

Gibbons worth grabbing???

Where are Atkins & constable named they on bench or onfield? If onfield I like there JS more than being benched.
For some reason website isn’t showing team sheets

    Captain_Risky · 21/03/2019 at 19:12

    Atkins on filed, Constable bench

      Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:15

      Not sure I like constables JS has quiet a few cats to come back in to that 22

      Hawk131415 · 21/03/2019 at 19:15

      Same Captain

    Hawk131415 · 21/03/2019 at 19:15

    NO

    hedski · 21/03/2019 at 19:15

    Atkins onfield, Constable and Clark on bench.

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:17

    You have to click on team lineups Mav, on AFL website.

    Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:20

    What’s constables JS like though ? Might swing duursma into the mids and grab scrimshaw?

    Or drop Collins to scrimshaw but Collins seems to have rock solid JS. I don’t want any rookies with shakey JS.
    Even Clark doesn’t fill me with confidence

Dingus · 21/03/2019 at 19:16

No nails left and a mild headache, must be supercoach season!!
Good luck to all
Game on!

TheWizardOfOzz · 21/03/2019 at 19:17

Hey community,
Could you please pick 2 out of sloane merrett and Matty Crouch??

    Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 19:19

    matty crouch and a coin flip probably sloane

    nankthetank · 21/03/2019 at 20:07

    Leaving it a little late ey wiz, guess that's why they call it the panic room! I'd be going crouch and merrett but sloane hurt me so I'm a bit biased

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 20:44

    Merrett and crouch. Two of the first picked this yearI

Sim21 · 21/03/2019 at 19:19

Merrett and Crouch

Need help.
Macrae + Libba + Walsh
or
MCrouch + Steele + Gibbons?

    Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 19:20

    first one

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:21

    Yeah number 1

FearTheBeard · 21/03/2019 at 19:22

Balta/Parker or Petrucelle?

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:24

    Balta

gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 19:31

Where do we get SC scores.. Fan Footy only got DT scores

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:43

    Footywire Gator.

    Fanfooty's for it now

Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 19:40

Please don’t make me regret the last minute move to drop you higgins I got a gut feeling I shoulda stuck with him after he being my shark move all pre season..

    gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 19:44

    I've got him in Mav

      Maverick_ · 21/03/2019 at 23:21

      You’ll take 94 I think that’s what he will give you most weeks gator. Did he look to play through the guts much?

        gator59 · 22/03/2019 at 08:54

        I think he went through the guts a couple of times during the last quarter…

    Holty01 · 21/03/2019 at 20:42

    Yeah I dropped Cuningham for Moore about 4 days ago for the swing set. How do you think I’m feeling right now.😫

hedski · 21/03/2019 at 20:04

Lazy 43 point QTR for Cripps.

Ja191 · 21/03/2019 at 20:18

gibbons looks good on ball

Anyone else having issues getting SC scores on herald sun?

    Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 20:25

    They're slow as usual…Fanfooty is faster.

Short a bit short of points. Houli looking the go to man.

FearTheBeard · 21/03/2019 at 20:48

Cuningham might be a corrective 😐

Holty01 · 21/03/2019 at 20:49

Already regretting not starting Simpson. But happy with the Blues quarter.

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 22:50

    How the game changed!

Steeeve · 21/03/2019 at 20:53

Didn't have Walsh all preseason, not even after JLT. Panic move, brought him in. 13 possies is promising but let's hope he can perform a LOT better than this when he's against less elite competition

    KSinny · 21/03/2019 at 21:30

    Picked up heaps in the second half, Definatly cleaned up his DE

    TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 22:12

    Looked very good in the 3rd, fell away a little late

      KSinny · 21/03/2019 at 22:17

      It's his first game so pretty happy with him tbh

gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 20:54

Looking like Sweet may get his first C jumper for the season… Go the Crippa

Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 21:11

Glad I got rid of Gibbons at the last minute, had a feeling he'd be a dud…brought Constable in instead.
Gibbons is probs a good player, but he's been used to being in the midfield, now he's a small fwd, if he doesn't kick goals, his score sucks.

    TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 21:17

    Looked pretty good in the second quarter, hasnt been seen since half time

      Russty_ · 21/03/2019 at 21:21

      Looks like Balta's a spud too…might have to be a corrective trade there…but to who?

        TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 21:25

        Ive dodged the Balta bullet luckily. I kept Matty Parker instead

          Teddy021 · 21/03/2019 at 22:29

          I fell for the balta trap 🙁

          COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 16:44

          Same here Tommy, I’m breathing a sigh of relief there

    Rick Grimes · 21/03/2019 at 21:29

    Happy with Gibbons. Was always bench fodder and only needs 50 a week to make good cash.

      Rocksta_ · 21/03/2019 at 22:18

      Yea, but he only got 35. Will increase a little I guess given his starting price, but not ideal.
      Balta, on the other hand, is a dud. Definitely a corrective trade required there.

        Vinny · 21/03/2019 at 22:35

        One decent game for gibbons which can likely happen if he receives more up the field gametime and his price will surge at a nice rate. I was happy with his game tonight

        Rick Grimes · 21/03/2019 at 22:54

        Balta didn't get much tog tho. Might move back with Dance out. A few intercept marks will bump him up.

          DavidC · 22/03/2019 at 08:43

          Yeh, he played in the backline mostly in the VFL last year. Garthwaite would be the first choice Rance replacement but he is coming back from injury.

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 22:49

    He did ok. I can see him having a decent game and getting a nice cash increase.

gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 21:31

Hope he goes huge in the last russty

Matt · 21/03/2019 at 21:33

Schultz from Freo or Parker?

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/03/2019 at 21:33

Blues sticking it to dustys dont argue.

johnno2908 · 21/03/2019 at 21:37

Newman looking fantastic. Surely won’t be the Bonner of 2019?

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:15

    Spewing. I had him a lot of the preseason but took him out

      Derek · 22/03/2019 at 00:07

      Didn’t even look at Newman, but didn’t think about Simpson either.

      johnno2908 · 22/03/2019 at 08:56

      It’s got me thinking about ways to get him in at D4 before round 3. Butchered it a bit early and still cracked out a 134.

        Beezneez · 22/03/2019 at 16:10

        Also working out ways to get him if he reproduces next week.

Jack · 21/03/2019 at 21:47

Balta a bigger spud than Relton Roberts

    Rocksta_ · 21/03/2019 at 21:53

    Yea, not thrilled about my last minute decision to bring him in. Have him on the bench at least, but first Rookie Correction Trade coming up in a couple of weeks.

TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 21:52

Has dusty really deserved this ton? Didnt think he was that good tbh. I aint complaining!

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 22:38

    109 from 79% TOG and didn’t even look like wanting to make a tackle. He wasn’t even out of second gear.

    Was only 67 at 3/4 time but had an important hand in the 3 goals that put the game away, little handball to Lynch, the long handball clearance to Edwards and a mark and inside 50 to setup another. CD love that stuff.

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:06

    Rapt with that Tommy! Cruisiest 109 from Dusty I've seen in a while, in for a big year I reckon

      Derek · 22/03/2019 at 00:06

      Zero tackles. Didn’t even try to make one.

      7 inside 50’s helped

    Hoot · 22/03/2019 at 10:22

    I went to game. Watched him. Looked very fatigued after every possesion. No explosiveness. Got 109 from sheer skill and awareness of his surroundings. When ever he touched the ball, good things happened for Rich (minus that tackle he copped). If he gets his tank up, he will be a great pick.

    Shake_n_bake · 22/03/2019 at 17:00

    Couldn’t believe a 109! 8 turnovers not 1 tackle.

gator59 · 21/03/2019 at 22:19

Tipping Tiges by 33 points is one positive out of the game

TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 22:26

What do we reckon. Play it safe and lock in 126 or take the risk? Leaning towards taking it, especially as its round 1 and dont think there are any other real standout captains

    Rocksta_ · 21/03/2019 at 22:29

    Grundy vs Cats Ruck Stocks?

      TommyC99 · 21/03/2019 at 22:30

      Didnt have the greatest pre season, although at full fitness would absolutely destroy the cats

      COREYSC · 21/03/2019 at 22:36

      Yeah I have Grundy as skipper too, tossing up but I think Grundy will go big as a Cats supporter our rucks suck!

    The Ranger · 21/03/2019 at 23:40

    I'll risk it on Fyfe v no Jacobs.
    130 is my cut off point generally.

Holty01 · 21/03/2019 at 22:32

Happy with Walsh. Didn’t score great but got his hands to the ball plenty. Will only get better.

    Derek · 21/03/2019 at 22:47

    He looked good. Pressure on his kicks early resulted in some turnovers. He will score much better that that.

    How bad is Garlett? How can he be in anyone’s best 22?

      The Ranger · 21/03/2019 at 22:50

      Walsh 68 Gibbons 35. Who goes up the most in $?

        Blueth · 21/03/2019 at 23:01

        no one it's round 1

          The Ranger · 21/03/2019 at 23:03

          Yeah it was a hypothetical question trying to make a point.
          Gibbons might not have done much but at 102K he doesn't need to do much to be worth a spot at M11.

            Derek · 22/03/2019 at 00:04

            I said Garlett, not Gibbons.

            Gibbons is good, locked in at M11.

              The Ranger · 22/03/2019 at 11:02

              Sorry Derek, my bad.

        kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 12:06

        Those 33 points though are on the field – it's why you pay overs for someone like Walsh

      Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 06:29

      yeah mate. Garlett was pretty average. But I thought C Curnow was worse tonight. Every time Carlton would get close, he would butcher the ball and Richmond would score. Very disappointed with his performance. Seems like a player when it’s not going well for him, he loses confidence. Experience will make him better though

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/03/2019 at 07:59

        Never seen him play that bad.

        Maybe greasier than it looked. Roo also bad.

Nick · 21/03/2019 at 22:36

Do l take Cripps 126 or do l go Grundy or Danger?

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:07

    Or Gawn?

      Nostradamus · 22/03/2019 at 22:53

      Take Cripps score Grundy wont score above 81 and Danger wont get a ton.

Vinny · 21/03/2019 at 22:36

Do I go Cripps’ 126 or chuck the C on danger. What’s everyone else doing??

    JobeWatsonChaiLatte · 21/03/2019 at 23:02

    Gawn will score 200

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:04

    Same problem Vinny! Tossing up Danger or Gawn for The C

Daniel · 21/03/2019 at 22:54

J.Selwood Z.Merrett or D.Beams as a POD Midfielder for M5?

    NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:04

    Selwood

    Derek · 22/03/2019 at 00:01

    I really think Merrett is close to top 8. He had a rough start last year with a bit of a hit to the head, but after his bye averaged 114, second highest midfielder. $540k is a bargain.

    He is a huge POD. Plenty of talk about him being in a moon boot had people crossing him off, but it was only a few weeks and had done everything up to then.

    Jogged around for less than half a game in JLT1, rested 1st quarter of JLT2 and came out second quarter and had 14 touches in 15 minutes. Welcome my team.

    You would think Shiel will attract the tag as well

dontblushbaby · 21/03/2019 at 23:01

Which rookies do we pick in defence & who plays on field ?

Burgess,Collins,*Clark,*Duursma,*Clark ,Hore ,Joyce,McKay,Rozee or *Scrimshaw, and there is also Ridley – Have I missed anyone ? * is who I have atm

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 06:32

    Hard to say. As we have never seen them in the real thing, I tend to select the best averages in JLT

NoLanguage96 · 21/03/2019 at 23:02

Pumped I didn't fall for the Balta trap. Dusty's second half finished up nicely too.

To take Cripps 125 as VC or put the C on Danger tomorrow night?

    Holty01 · 21/03/2019 at 23:33

    I would normally take 125. I think you risk losing more not selecting then winning.

Westy · 21/03/2019 at 23:34

Just loopholed Grundy and taken Cripps score. All hail Captain Bines!
126 x 2 makes me a happy man.

Neil · 21/03/2019 at 23:36

Can we still make unlimited trades on the teams who’ve not played?

    COREYSC · 21/03/2019 at 23:38

    Yes Neil

Neil · 21/03/2019 at 23:53

De goey, darling or Greene to solve my F4 debarcle

    Northerner · 22/03/2019 at 05:50

    Like the Darling move. Give T Boak some consideration at that price point. His role is swapping with Ebert who’s going to spend more time forward.

    redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 05:55

    Greene for me. Serious value for a potential top 6 forward.

      DavidC · 22/03/2019 at 12:08

      Greene will miss too many games to be considered a top 6 forward. There is certainly value there.

Neil · 21/03/2019 at 23:59

Brayshaw M5 & Greene F4 or brad crouch M5 & Darling F4

Which options better. Thanks in advance

Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 04:02

Crippsy’s score of 126 is a conundrum for me, as well as many other coaches I’m sure. To take or not to take? I have all of Macrae, Grundy, Gawn and Fyfe still to play whom could blow away that score. However, putting it into perspective, if you roll the Dice and one of the above scores 140, you are only losing 14 points overall.
I’m leaning towards taking the 126, but it is definitely a conundrum. Thoughts everyone?

    Russty_ · 22/03/2019 at 05:04

    I'd take it Rocksta, it's a decent score, your C could not live up to their prediction or get injured, it's only overall ranking it affects for this and next week, not leagues.

      Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 05:24

      I agree bud but please note my main focus this season is overall rank. Hoping for a PB on that front. Would you still take it in light of this?

        Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 06:52

        I’d still take it Rocksta. Grundy averaged 130 last year so 126 seems like a good score

        Russty_ · 22/03/2019 at 14:05

        I still would mate but it's up to you whether you want to take the risk or not, I've gone Danger into Fyfe this week, if Danger gets 120, I'm taking it.

      Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 09:13

      Hey mate. AFL fantasy can you still trade now? It won’t allow me to do anything.

        Russty_ · 22/03/2019 at 14:02

        Not in the main one Holty..that locks as soon as the week starts, you can still trade in the draft game.

    Northerner · 22/03/2019 at 06:48

    Those that used VC on Cripps should reflect on whether they could have shown more patience! Danger or Grundy VC were probably the obvious choices this round.

      NoLanguage96 · 22/03/2019 at 13:14

      Not really. Cripps was on 85 at HT and could have easily gone a 150 if he didn't slow down

    The Ranger · 22/03/2019 at 06:52

    130 is my cut off Rocksta so I'll be going with Fyfe.
    Good to pick a number and stick to it.

      hedski · 22/03/2019 at 15:14

      Yeah I'm a 130 man too Ranger.
      Danger is the man tonight, think he'll go huge. Go cats.

    Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 07:27

    I'm banking it myself.

    TommyC99 · 22/03/2019 at 07:35

    I’m gonna take it Rocksta. If I had fyfe I’d consider going the C as the chances of him scoring less than 126 are quite low. But my main C options in Gawn, Grundy and Macrae (don’t want danger to kill it) I can all make a case why they wouldn’t kill it. So going the safe option I reckon

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 07:37

    I’ve taken it rocksta. It’s R1 I dunno how my team will go so I’ve taken the 126 it’s still a very nice score

redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 06:14

What do people think about starting the season with rucks of Gawn, Westhoff and Bines?

From what I’ve read (on JR mainly) Grundy seems more likely to have a larger drop in price than Gawn. When he does drop, bring him in, swing The Hoff forward and I’ll have a backup ruck to swap between him and Bines using dpp.

It gives me a bit extra to upgrade a mid pricer to a premo.

I do see the trouble of getting the $$ together for Grundy. Even if he drops to 600k its probably round 7 before getting him in, but most likely during the bye’s.

So, good idea or crazy? I’m leaning towards crazy, but it’s what I’ve got at the moment.

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 07:11

    Hi Red. I think it’s too hard to get him in. However, plenty on here say otherwise. People say trade some cash cows but u need to have them there at that perfect time. Others say build a war chest but I don’t like the idea of having all that money sitting in the bank waiting for the right time. Derek put a good argument in to me about this. He likes building a war chest. But he also knows to well that it’s still not simple as Docherty was an example.
    In the end, I’m starting him as it saves me trades and I don’t have to worry about how I can get him in.

      Derek · 22/03/2019 at 08:20

      The Hoff is a bit over priced as well, that’s why Lycett might be a better option for that move.

      You could argue to wait for Hoff to drop in price before getting him in your forward line.

      I think Hoffs best days are behind him anyway.

      Ahh yes, I have never owned Docherty, he just wouldn’t drop in price.

      Everyone is cheaper at some stage.

      In the last 3 years, of the top 60 players each year, only 4 have gone through a year and have not been, at some point during the year, cheaper than their starting price. I think they were Docherty, Gawn, Brayshawand maybe Adams (will have to check my old work papers)

        Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 08:30

        That is handy advice about only 4 players not dropping.
        My trouble will be trying to get all the guns in my backline this year. I’m only starting Hurn and hoping Williams ends up a keeper. Laird, Lloyd etc will take time to squeeze them in.

        redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 18:29

        Thanks Derek. You have made good points. However, Lycett is not a keeper and I’m thinking that the Hoff will be.

        I’ve gone safe in most regards this year, only real risks are Greene, B Crouch and B Smith and I’m pretty happy with all 3, but the extra dollars may see me get Macrae. Which makes me think I’m going to be chasing a 700k player no matter what.

        My dilemma is now who is going to be easier to get, Macrae or Grundy?

        I’ve got an hour or so to decide. We’ll see what 2 more beers think.

Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 07:24

To those questioning taking Cripp's VC score, taking a punt on say a 140+ score from somewhere else, look at it this way:

(126*2) + 140 = 392 compared with,
(140*2) + 126 = 406.

So the gamble is potentially over 14SC.

Is that worth it to you?

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 07:36

    I’ve taken Cripps score teddy. Locked it in

    Derek · 22/03/2019 at 08:08

    139 cut off for me

      Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 08:20

      Hell Derek. That’s a huge cut off. Who you putting the vc and c on this round. I’m still undecided. I’m either going Grundy/Danger for vc and Gawn/Macrae for C

        Derek · 22/03/2019 at 13:16

        it works the same way. If you don't take a 126 and you only get a 115, you have only 11 points you have missed out on.

        Grundy, TMitch and Gawn all went over 139 9x each last year, Macrae managed it 8 times.

    The Ranger · 22/03/2019 at 10:59

    It works both ways tho Teddy.
    If my punt doesn't come off and Fyfe only gets a 110 I'm not going to be too far in the hole.

      Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 11:03

      Yeah no doubt. It's all risk management and chance at the end of the day. There's no guaranteed result.

      Good luck with your choice! 🙂

      therealslimshady · 22/03/2019 at 15:27

      What if your Captain gets injured after 5mins!! that's what your really risking chasing the extra 10 points

        KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 17:22

        Very true

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 12:22

    Cripps just scored over my cut off point of 125, so I will be taking it.

    NoLanguage96 · 22/03/2019 at 13:18

    Its a good point. I'll probably take it

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 13:35

    I look at it this way …. my VC cut off is 130 … anything lower .. forget it. I choose my captain because I think he will pass that mark .. trust yourself…unless your VC delivers your pass mark..
    I have Cripps into Danger …

      hedski · 22/03/2019 at 15:15

      Bang on Lazza.

      Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 16:14

      Back yourself in Lazza.

      I still haven't decided what to do yet haha.

      The thrill of chasing every last point is what makes this game so addictive for me and is a continual learning experience. This is, after all, my third year of playing SC and watching footy.

        Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 17:19

        I’m with you Teddy. I had the VC on Crisp, but am going to roll the dice on Grundy with the C tonight. Wouldn’t want to lose the $50K by 14 points now would we ( Yes I’m a Glass half full man).

          Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 19:11

          I might go Grundy too now haha. Geelong's rucks suck!

    Jack · 22/03/2019 at 18:00

    I took Cripps 130 round 1 last season only for Mitchell to get 167 fwiw

Harrison · 22/03/2019 at 07:45

Last minute thought

Brayshaw M5 & Greene F4
OR
brad crouch M5 & Tim kelly F4
Please take a second to help

    FearTheBeard · 22/03/2019 at 07:49

    I currently have Brayshaw & Dunkley (after trading Kelly out) though might go down to Greene to get Oliver/Fyfe.

      Harrison · 22/03/2019 at 08:17

      Dunkley is my F3. Kelly would be F4 if I went with crouch as my mid.

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 11:42

    Brayshaw & Greene

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 12:15

    Brayshaw M5 & Green F4.

Red · 22/03/2019 at 08:20

Mitch Robinson F3 for a POD???

    Derek · 22/03/2019 at 08:51

    i think his best good enough, but not sure you will get it every week. feels more like a 85-90 scorer now days.

    i don't think he has had any role changes, so you will get pretty much the same as last year

    Doc · 22/03/2019 at 10:32

    Good PoD, I like it. Brisbane look to be on the up and he'll probably be seeing more of the ball in that mid/fwd role he has, however there is always a risk with someone whose never reaches the heights of averaging what you want out of them.

    DavidC · 22/03/2019 at 12:26

    Might not remain a best 22 player all season. Lots of competition for spots this year at the lions. Was only given a 12 month extension last year.

Derek · 22/03/2019 at 08:42

i just need two people to jump from Div 1 to Div 4 (697801) and we are good to go.

    well Organised derek

Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 08:42

Short was a last minute addition and likely to be my first out if he puts out another 67 point stinker.

Notorious · 22/03/2019 at 08:49

Who is a better choice at F4? Moore or Greene

    Locked and Loaded · 22/03/2019 at 09:27

    Greene by the Flemington straight

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 09:33

      ^^^

    Derek · 22/03/2019 at 10:06

    Greene, but he there is a fair price difference.

    Doc · 22/03/2019 at 10:29

    Not involving cash easily Greene, but I'd rather save $120k and get someone closer to a rookie than a mid pricer who has a high risk of both injury and suspension. If you're confident Greene's price and scoring potential will outweigh that risk go for it, however I'd steer clear.

Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 09:13

Collins, scrimshaw, Clark & duursma

Which one to leave out I need 3.
Not sure about Clark’s JS but his scoring is good

    Doc · 22/03/2019 at 10:26

    Scrimshaw's JS will be shakey once Hawthorn fix up some injuries, but if you think he can generate enough cash to warrant trading before it reaches that point then keep him, if not leave him out. Collins very good JS but poor SP, he would probably be my choice out of the 4 to get rid of as his scoring potential isn't high enough to warrant the extra $$$.

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 11:29

      Yeah good points on scrimshaw doc. Collins did go 90 & 55 in JLTs. PS not too bad by looks of it. Scrimshaw has Birchall to come back who else in hawks def? I prefer scrimshaw but JS is important

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 12:18

    I have the three after Collins, apart from Walsh & Butters, I'm not paying more than 150k for a rookie.

Josh Moffitt · 22/03/2019 at 09:37

Anyone know when the full Sunday teams drop?

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 10:04

    Around 630 tonight we should have them

Ryan · 22/03/2019 at 09:52

Coniglio or Neale?

    KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 10:36

    Neale is probably the safer option but I think Cogs has more upside with his scoring potential.

    COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 11:09

    Out of Fyfe’s shadow now for the 2019 Season I think this is the Year Neale goes huge!

Doc · 22/03/2019 at 10:35

Having a tough time between Mundy or Dunkley,. Promised midfield minutes from Bevo for a good potential player, or a more consistent player who will sometimes bang out a high score?

    COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 11:10

    I going with dunkley, his run late last season is hard to ignore and when promised the same role the potential is huge for him although there is always risk with Bevo but that’s the game we play! I think Mundy will Play more forward with Hogan out

Ron · 22/03/2019 at 11:21

Heeney, Kelly or Wallis or someone else

    COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 11:25

    Heeney

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 11:26

COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 11:26

Take cripps’ 126 score
Grundy or Dangerfield as Captain?

    Hugh · 22/03/2019 at 11:32

    Grundy will go large tonight. Stanley no match. I’m predicting 150+

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 11:40

      I’m taking it but I do not have Grundy. He should be able to beat 126

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 11:45

    im considering Danger over Grundy. With Ablett forward, he should play more midfield time. Either one however will be solid

      COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 13:29

      I’m Geelong supporter and i’m confident in Danger especially for that reason, this is the first time I’ve had Grundy so i’m Not sure what to expect but I have seen how big he can score! And with geelong ruckman he’s up against it’s a tantilising prospect!

Ado81 · 22/03/2019 at 11:47

Is Sam Collins a must have rookie?
Have Sicily as my D1 but think I need Laird there. I'm $3k short of a straight swap. Can't afford Laird and Collins. So my options are:
Sicily Collins
Laird Burgess
Laird Cummings
Any help much appreciated!

    Mathew Donnelly · 22/03/2019 at 12:46

    Personally, I can't see how Laird will improve his scoring like he did last year. I feel like Sicily could go up another gear.

    Collins will make coin and be solid during the front portion of the year. Is it possible to scrape 3k off some other line?

    Ps. I feel dirty not having Laird since I think he will finish in the top 6 defenders but shying away because I need to extract value some where on the field.

    Best of Luck

    NoLanguage96 · 22/03/2019 at 13:20

    Laird and Burgess

TommyC99 · 22/03/2019 at 11:49

After the match, i decided id be taking 126.. But the more i think of it, the more i think Grundy could take the p155. Someone convince me otherwise pls haha.

    Beezneez · 22/03/2019 at 16:04

    My cutoff has always been 130 but I've decided to take Cripp's 126 which is pretty close – a bird in the hand. Say you have another player as C and they score 140 – 150 then the total score would be either 406 or 426. in this scenario, leaving Cripps as captain with a loophole would mean the total score would be 392 or 406. the difference would be a 14 to 20 point deficit which imo is not worth the associated risk i.e the player scoring less or being injured etc. There is a post on this matter earlier on.

murray · 22/03/2019 at 11:52

Like blue chips stocks on the stock exchange, so is Gawn and Grundy.Like blue chips stock on the stock exchange, so is Gawn and Grundy.

Blue chip and very expensive. So, my question is would you buy these 2 if they were ASX listed stocks knowing that they have a very expensive price, there ceiling room is limited and they will (not if) fall in price, not by a lot but I think they could drop to the 550-600k price range. This would represent a drop of about 20%. Just like in the stock market, this would represent a great buying opportunity.

So I am going on the theory that I could select, say a Goldstein and Jacobs for nearly 400k less than Grundy and Gawn. Whilst their SC output would be less (they are priced to ave 85-95), I believe they are fair value and will not drop much going forward. Of the two, I think Goldstein is worth keeping and he should do well but If Jacobs turns out to be a failure, then by all means upgrade to either Gawn or Grundy and treat it as a failed experiment.

By doing this, and I understand it is risky, it has enabled me to have spare coin to pick up 13 premos on other lines. For example:

Def Laird Whitfield, Williams and Smith plus the usual rookies (I think Smith could be a premo and a keeper if he scores well)
Mids Cripps Oliver, Martin, Gyfe M Crouch and Walsh + rookies
Fwd Dangerfield Heeney dunkley and T Kelly + rookies

This makes 13 premos plus Goldstein and Jacobs = 15 premos

So what do you think of this fellas, a good move? Risky but could pay off and would require less trades to upgrade other lines to premos

Let me know what you think

    murray · 22/03/2019 at 13:34

    .

    KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 13:46

    I think u have to start with at least one of Grundy or Gawn but idk it could be a huge success or a huge fail

      Stretch Marks · 22/03/2019 at 14:35

      When you buy on the stock market, you are not only considering whether the price will go up and down. you are also considering dividends in the value equation also. The blue chip stocks pay the best dividends. Likewise, Grundy and Gawn pay the highest dividends (supercoach points). I'm going both Grundy and Gawn.

        murray · 22/03/2019 at 16:36

        SM good points, I will reconsider

          Derek · 22/03/2019 at 16:42

          Grundy and Gawn are Fully Franked

    Doc_1 · 22/03/2019 at 15:23

    If the aim was to have the greatest team value after round 23 would agree completely.

    As it’s points gained (for both overall rank and individual round wins for leagues) I think the points missed by not having them outweighs the cash gains.

      murray · 22/03/2019 at 16:36

TelescopicCox · 22/03/2019 at 12:59

Getting cold feet on Lycett. Current R/FWD lineup is below:

R – Grundy, Lycett (Clarke)
F – Danger, Kelly, De Goey, Greene, Setterfield, Drew (Parker, Bines)
10k bank

Would you change to the below:

R – Grundy, Goldy (Bines)
F – Danger, Dunkley, De Goey, Setterfield, Petruccelle, Drew (Parker, Burgess)

140k bank

    TommyC99 · 22/03/2019 at 14:50

    If you believe Lycett can be a top 8 fwd, id stay with option 1 and then swing Lycett fwd to get Gawn later on. If you don't. Then go option 2 but youre guaranteeing a sideways trade down the line.

      Derek · 22/03/2019 at 16:45

      i like the Lycett option, especially if you think Gawn and Grundy are the two best rucks, you can start Lycett and save a bit of cash if they fall in price. If Lycett was a bit cheaper i'd be doing it, but at $450k he is too expensive and therefore not likely to increase in price much himself.

      if you think Goldy will be equal or close to the other two, just go Goldy now

Jordan · 22/03/2019 at 13:13

Hey guys last minute second guessing my team here haha
But which option sounds better?

1- Whitfield (D1) Smith (D3) M.Crouch (M5)

I've just noticed that Mills is listed at BP. How worried should I be?

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 13:36

    Mills has a rotational role … he wont be a pure mid … so it depends on why he is in your team..

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 14:35

    He's been in my team from the start, I'm keeping him for now, was always going to be a bit of both as far as playing in def and mid.

      Derek · 22/03/2019 at 16:50

      you are a big fan of Mills John. I'm not starting him this year, even though i love the fella and truely would be great if he averaged 100+

      I had a look at my hit & miss with mid-pricers over the last 4 seasons. Not good. Had a bit of success with 'fallen premiums' but zero with breakout players.

      i think he will get plenty of midfield time, as long as Lloyd and McVeigh stay fit. Swans have JPK, heeny and Parker, they need one more, i just think it will be Mills.

NoLanguage96 · 22/03/2019 at 13:18

        Not much between them, but if I had to choose, Clark probably, but you could just toss a coin.

          Derek · 22/03/2019 at 16:53

          i think Scrimshaw has better JS than Clark

JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 13:42

Not sure who to go with on field out of Scott and Constable, Scott is named in the fwd line, Constable on the bench.

    Sana · 22/03/2019 at 14:02

    I have this dilemma too John! Decisions!

    Russty_ · 22/03/2019 at 14:18

    Hey John, I'd go Constable although I'm putting Atkins on field, probably 50-50 though mate, I chose Balta over Petrucelle so maybe don't listen to me lol

      JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 14:31

      Hey Russty, I've had Constable at M8 for ages now, Scott M9 only came into my team after JLT2, so I'll just keep him there and see what happens. Atkins is my M10. I ended up not picking Balta for my team, went with Petrucelle and Parker on the fwd bench.

        Russty_ · 22/03/2019 at 14:57

        Hey mate, Neil suggested in the other thread, maybe Balta could go to defence for Rance, not sure if he can play defence but it'd give him better JS, I fear he may have to be my 1st trade of the year.
        He only played half the game but 5 possessions and 1 goal isn't good enough.

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 22/03/2019 at 15:58

          Yup he is out of my team after this round. Time on ground is low but he did fark all for the last 3 qtrs

          DavidC · 22/03/2019 at 16:40

          Played defence before being drafted and Hardwick has already said they will consider that option.

    SW Roosters · 22/03/2019 at 14:58

    Why does anyone give any relevance to where players are named in the paper? It's not U/12's. Sides never line up as selected and players are that heavily rotated through positions and on and off the ground that where they are named is completely inconsequential.

      JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 15:16

      If a player is named on the ground they tend to have better JS than ones named on the bench.

        SW Roosters · 22/03/2019 at 15:53

        Nonsense….. The 4 players named on the bench are not the last 4 picked!! It doesn't work like that at all!!
        Heeney is named on the bench for the Swans – pretty sure his JS is okay?? Menegola for Geelong on bench – his JS is fine also….

        Other than extended benches there is no JS relevance at all…

          JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 16:02

          I only concern myself with the dees team, pretty sure Spargo, Hunt, Hore, Wagner are the fringe players in the team, all four on the bench.

    NoLanguage96 · 22/03/2019 at 15:25

    Forget about where they're named John. I'd put Scott on field personally

Locked and Loaded · 22/03/2019 at 14:56

Not sure either will end up keepers come seasons end so probably just going to be stepping stones..
What do you guys Think?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 22/03/2019 at 15:51

    Brayshaw is a valid selection as a potential m8. Brad Crouch won't touch until he strings 2 seasons together. Just don't trust him

      Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 16:22

      Yeah valid point calintz I’m on the fence but 110k is a huge discount but it may result in a trade I guess where brayshaw May be an M8 like u said

How long is Josh Kelly likely to be sidelined for?

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 18:48

    It’s gws could be one week or one year

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 19:02

    Does it matter? When he does play you can now watch/monitor him for a couple of weeks whilst his price drops..

    Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 09:02

    You'd have to ask 66 mate

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 16:33

Who do we think is gonna be the highest averaging player for 2019? My tips going to Dangerfield, played the start of last season with injuries and had to share the mid time around quite a bit – still ended up with an average of 120 – but this year he's had a perfect pre-season and with Gazza spending more time up forward im backing him for a 130+ average. As such i have also placed the VC on him tonight.

    Derek · 22/03/2019 at 17:04

    he went #1 in all the drafts i was in.

    I think the cats ruck department might let him down a bit. Grundy will bring his own the ball tonight and danger and joel will need to work pretty hard against a very good midfield team to get hold of it

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 17:27

    based on averages as you said,my top 5 will be
    Gawn
    Danger
    Cripps
    Grundy
    And going out on a limb here but Rocky.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 19:25

      Ooh big call on Rocky Holts, have you selected him this year?

        Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 20:20

        yeah mate. In my team and happy with today. But we all know how quickly it can turn around

Mark · 22/03/2019 at 16:54

should I trade burgess to scrimshaw or Collins?

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 17:04

    Yes, unless u have moore

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 17:30

    Scrimshaw is cheaper than Collins, not sure I would want to spend more than 150k on a def rookie.

      Mark · 22/03/2019 at 17:59

      I have 100k in the bank… and moore is my D4.

        JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 18:12

        I have Scrimshaw at D5.

          Mark · 22/03/2019 at 18:30

          should I get rid of parker, put burgess in the fwd line then get scrimshaw or nah

            JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 18:41

            Depends if you want a swing player or not.

gator59 · 22/03/2019 at 17:01

B.Smith and Brayshaw… or.. Ridley and Yeo or anyone cheaper than Yeo

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 17:46

    B.Smith D4 and Brayshaw M5 for me

Juzzy · 22/03/2019 at 17:12

Plenty of spots open in "Superboot Benrnie" league. 809261

Was a very fun and competitive league last year. All welcome.

Steeeve · 22/03/2019 at 17:14

Anyone else have Gibbons and Balta on field?

I knew it was wrong but I just wanted the game to be more exciting. Only made it more frustrating.

    Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 17:23

    I have both on the bench, thank God. Can’t see Balta making the grade. Started okay but just went missing big time thereafter. Corrective trade on the horizon me thinks.

      Steeeve · 22/03/2019 at 23:15

      Yeah let's hope someone else puts their hand up as a forward rookie. If not I might have to downgrade someone and upgrade balta to moore if I can.

Shake_n_bake · 22/03/2019 at 17:14

Who to start on field only one Scott Costable or Atkins?

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 17:28

    I'm going with Constable, but in round one, no one really knows, need a few games before we can get at true idea.

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 17:29

    I’m starting Constable but all valid selections mate

    hedski · 22/03/2019 at 17:52

    Constable for me Shake, tempted to play Atkins over Butters.
    Ill keep Scott on the pine until I see him in the real stuff, other two are more mature.
    Could be a bad call.

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:05

    I've actually been able to get all 3 onto the bench but at a push constable. had the 3rd best ppm for geelong behind selwood and danger.

    As tweeted by Fantasy Freako.

Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 17:36

Sunday's teams are in:
Rookies who missed out:
Hind
Thomas
Flynn
King
BZT

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 18:19

    So after all the concern about rookies .. there are 25 rookies playing in R1.
    Of the 25 rookies only 5 have DPP.
    And, whilst everyone was worried about the number of FWD options, there are 11 rookies who can be selected as a FWD.
    There are 8 who can be selected as a DEF.
    There are 11 who can be selected as MID.

James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 17:43

Been good all week but the panic of second guessing yourself has kicked in…..

De Goey vs Dunkley?

Petrucelle or C Burgess (I'm not rolling with Darcy Moore)

    hedski · 22/03/2019 at 18:13

    Dunkley and Petrucelle.
    Yeah I'm not sold on Moore either, could be proved wrong.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 18:16

    I second what hedski said

TheWizardOfOzz · 22/03/2019 at 17:51

Hey community,

Mundy and B Crouch or Billings and Merrett, I keep switching, HELPPPPP??

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 17:58

    definitely B Crouch for me

Wilkie v Burgess · 22/03/2019 at 17:59

Saints supporters what’s Wilkie’s js like?

Is Burgess or Wilkie a better option in def?

I’m thinking burgess but starting to doubt myself especially considering Roberton our for the yr ?
Thoughts anyone…..

    Juzzy · 22/03/2019 at 18:12

    Saints fan but can't answer with conviction.

    Brown will be back in a couple. Joyce in. Possibly Marsh in the coming weeks.

    I would bet on Burgess right now. I think the Saints will be rolling through quite a few defenders in the coming weeks.

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:18

    burgess purely on the DPP

Gaz · 22/03/2019 at 18:16

neale or oliver

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:24

    gee they are both stars. I had the same decision. I went Neale purely because I am also going A Brayshaw and didnt want 2 premos from melbourne

      Gaz · 22/03/2019 at 18:28

      fair enough,
      one last query: b crouch w oliver or brayshaw and neale

        James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:32

        well i have in fact rolled with Bray and neale and b crouch……

Shake_n_bake · 22/03/2019 at 18:16

Wilkie worth a look??

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:23

    not for me mate

JoelParker · 22/03/2019 at 18:24

Hurn williams Smith moore* Collins duursma (Clark hore)

Take Moore (D4) or scrimshaw (D5)

    James Sykes · 22/03/2019 at 18:33

    i went scrimshaw on that choice

Gibbs · 22/03/2019 at 18:25

Wilkie or Chris Burges for my last defence rookie spot?

Gibbs · 22/03/2019 at 18:35

Any thoughts and insight on L.Schultz? Could he be a better F8 pick than Burgess/Petruccelle?

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 19:14

    Small (180cm) mature age FWD who played for Willi … In the second half of the VFL 2018 season Schultz ranked second for ranking points (94.8), first for disposals (16.9), second for contested possessions (8), first for loose ball gets (4.4), first for clearances (2.8), third for marks (5) and fifth for score involvements (6). Scores lots of goals.
    If I had known he was to be playing prior to last night I would have picked him ahead of Gibbons. And woul dhave given me a DPP in the MIDs (Drew).

    But, how do get a line on him … not Gibbons I hope.

redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 18:37

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Of the pure mid rookies who didn’t play last night I have Constable, Aitkins and Butters. am I missing anyone obvious?

Thanks.

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 19:03

    Duursmaa, unless you have him in DEF

      redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 19:10

      Already have him.

Rlphy74 · 22/03/2019 at 18:38

Sean Darcy with no Aaron Sandilands. Currently toying with him at R2, and if it fails then bring in Mumford. Am I crazy?

    Borko · 22/03/2019 at 18:50

    thinking of same with english … high risk, high reward! Only do it if u get an extra premo

    redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 18:50

    It’s original, i’ll give you that.

    I’m thinking about the Hoff in the ruck so I can get Grundy when he is cheaper. It makes perfect sense at the moment, but what am I going to think in 5 weeks time? Pretty sure I’ll regret it.

    Yet I still want to try it out.

    Go for it, I say.

      Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 19:01

      That's where I am at … Hoff till after Grundy's bye.. but I wont trade him .. he will go FWD.
      Just tossing up whether it is worth having Zac Clarke at F3…

    Borko · 22/03/2019 at 19:01

    Do you know how long Sandi is out? says TBC calf on website … if 5-7 weeks it’s a good move but just don’t know. At least English is No 1 ruck … needs to overage 80 for 7 weeks

Clarky · 22/03/2019 at 18:38

So those with cripps 126 banking? Think I’m leaning towards banking but Grundy is oh so tempting

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 18:43

    If Grundy scores 140 you only gain 14 points

JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 18:38

Scott.

    redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 18:42

    I just had a look at the Rookie Cheat sheet and noticed him.

    Do you think I should ditch Aitkins? Haven’t fully done my research and have just picked up on people’s comments, but I’m guessing his JS is iffy.

      Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 18:44

      Role player, played it very well in the jlt. See his job security as decent

      hedski · 22/03/2019 at 18:44

      I wouldn't ditch Atkins, cats love the mature ages and You can always watch Scott and correct round 3 if necessary.

      JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 18:48

      Who are your mid rookies, I have the three you named plus Walsh, Scott and Gibbons. If you have Gibbons you could get Scott in for him next week if Scott goes alright this weekend.

        redherringfc · 22/03/2019 at 19:00

        Others are Walsh and Gibbons. Think I’ll be holding Gibbons unless he’s dropped. he’ll make enough, but might be a bit slower.

        I could get rid of B Crouch for Scott and upgrade a defender or forward, both lines seriously lacking.

          JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 19:28

          Hately is another one I am interested in, a bit expensive though. I'm going five premos and three rookies on field in the mids, but I'm one of the few, most are going five premos, one mid pricer, two rookies. You just go with the structure you are comfortable with.

Beams or Fyfe? still cant decide

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 19:11

    Fyfe

    KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 19:12

    Fyfe

    JoelParker · 22/03/2019 at 19:35

    Beams

JoelParker · 22/03/2019 at 18:53

Best midfielder between 560-620k
Already have Oliver so it’s between treloar cogs neAle or Fyfe? Will Fyfe be able to handle the extra attention without Neale

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 22/03/2019 at 19:05

    Fyfe not a popular starting pick for that reason. No one knows how he will handle having next to zero support. M.Crouch has been a popular pick. Neale is a safe option too.

      JoelParker · 22/03/2019 at 19:34

      I have Matt already mate.

      treloar?

Steve · 22/03/2019 at 18:56

Currently got T.Kelly at F3, wondering if he is the right choice, or is there anyone else

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 18:58

    He will be a solid F3 steve..
    I have Dunkley but have been asking my self all day which is the better option of he and kelly!
    Dunkley purely on his bye won it for me.

BadgerHoney7 · 22/03/2019 at 19:05

Schultz JS safe?

    DavidC · 23/03/2019 at 07:45

    He's only in because Matera got suspended in jlt. Think he will only last one week.

RoyWetard · 22/03/2019 at 19:06

Drew or Scott?

    KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 19:23

    Get Drew in the FWD and Scott in the MID

KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 19:16

URGENT! Macrae > Fyfe Hore > Scrimshaw Constable > Atkins?

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 19:21

    Macrae easily, hore if it’s bench scrim if it’s onfield and Constance

KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 19:22

Cheers mate yeh that's what I decided to go with

KSinny · 22/03/2019 at 19:23

Is Butters to Atkins to make money for Hore to Scrimshaw a good idea?

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 19:32

    I have all four, not sure you need to upgrade Hore just yet, see how he goes.

TOPHAWK1 · 22/03/2019 at 19:27

Parker or Schultz for last rookie spot on forward bench?

BadgerHoney7 · 22/03/2019 at 19:28

Need help asap – Schultz and Bailey Scott or Petrucelle and Tom Atkins

    Gibbs · 22/03/2019 at 19:39

    Schultz and Scott for me. Petruccelle's scoring potential worries me, Atkins looks fairly decent though

    hedski · 22/03/2019 at 19:45

    2

PANIK ATAK · 22/03/2019 at 19:33

PAAAANNNIIICCCCKKKK AATTTTTTAAAACKKKKKK

Treloar or coniglio ?

    Gibbs · 22/03/2019 at 19:43

    Treloar

Froffs · 22/03/2019 at 19:34

thoughts on Aliir? Playing abit of ruck. POD

Sharkmove_King · 22/03/2019 at 19:36

Schultz reminds me of Gowers last year. Nobody has him because he came from nowhere

Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 19:41

Well I’ve got the vc on Grundy. Now watch Danger smash out a huge game.

SamuraiPizzaCat · 22/03/2019 at 20:26

C on Grundy and he's 18 at quarter time, minor panic. Also had T Kelly in my team but switched him out so of course he's had a huge first quarter!

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 20:32

    I could have just afforded Kelly at F4, but decided I needed the cash for any trades I wanted to do in the coming weeks.

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 22/03/2019 at 20:39

      Smart to keep some cash spare, who did you go with instead?

        JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 20:41

        Billings.

          SamuraiPizzaCat · 22/03/2019 at 20:47

          Nice option at F4, could pay off big!

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 20:34

    Who did you have your VC on ?

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 22/03/2019 at 20:42

      Haven't gone any VC loop hole this week, in hindsight I probably could have used Zac Clarke for loop (selected as E) but oh well, hopefully Grundy will pick up, so reliable last year

        JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 20:52

        I've got Bines as my R3, I like the non playing rucks for the loophole, it's worked well for me the last two years. I also went against the pack and didn't pick Grundy as my R1, went for Gawn instead. Had Grundy/ Gawn combo all pre season, until last week, when I traded Grundy out, I'm hoping to get him in around the byes.

Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 20:26

Well I don’t think Kelly’s home sick.

Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 20:39

Moore not taking kick ins and looking ordinary… hmmm there may be a corrective trade coming!

COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 20:44

Adam “Kick It With My Shin” Treloar

    Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 21:00

    60 at halftime. Will take that.

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 21:08

    Should be minus 28…

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 22:37

    i went coniglio -> treloar right at the bounce of the game and am disappointed…
    thank god treloar can find 30+ touches with ease because his DE% really lets him down
    that late swap may come back to hurt me

      JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 22:46

      Had him in my team two years ago, was just the same, never again.

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 20:46

#CoxCurse?

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 21:19

    Not yet but he is currently on target for a score lower then all his others last year.

Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 20:51

My roll of the dice on Grundy and ignoring Crippsys 126 is looking like a very bad idea right now

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 21:17

    I’m amazed he isn’t on more right now. His ruck work has been good

      JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 21:21

      Not doing as much around the ground as normal maybe.

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 22:43

    Similar, at least Danger out did Grundy … but I’m still 29 pts behind my Cripps VC.. the ‘Grundys’ dropped 45..

gator59 · 22/03/2019 at 21:01

Tommy Stewart is killing it down back 84 sc points at half time

    JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 21:05

    I remember Russty talking about him for his team a while back

      gator59 · 22/03/2019 at 21:14

      Certainly one to keep an eye on JD

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 22:48

    Another Champion Data mystery.. he played pretty well in the last half and is awarded only an extra 11 points…. De Goey kicks a goal after a fumble in the 3rd quarter and is awarded 15 pts …

Shake_n_bake · 22/03/2019 at 21:08

Championship data l dont know how is stanley outscoring Grundy. Both 8 possies hitouts 17 to 12 10 to advantage to 2. 0 free kicks against to grundy 2 against to Stanley. Im lost

    Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 21:14

    He's been pretty average to be fair. Cox curse? I'm sure he'll smash it 2nd half.

      Shake_n_bake · 22/03/2019 at 21:32

      It still just doesn’t add up. Nobody here surely would think Stanley out scored Grundy that half.

        Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 22:02

        Grundy has hardly won a clear tap out and clearly beaten by Stanley in 3rd qtr… which is why he went backwards… Grundy disposal is also poor and giving away frees ..

    Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 21:16

    Yep and the commentators are saying Grundys ruck work is the difference in the game. Doesn’t make sense. Seems Stanley is being awarded for nullifying Grundy.

      Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 22:03

      Don’t rely on the commentators.. they guess half the time.. awarding disputed hit outs to Grundy..

        Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 22:07

        His 3rd quarter was very average

ZzZCalintZzZ · 22/03/2019 at 21:33

Round1 is poop

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 21:33

Does Ablett seem to be getting boo'd alot everytime he gets the ball? Absolutely disgraceful from my fellow pies fans, can't be disrespecting a great of the game like that

    COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 21:55

    100% agree I don’t understand why they do that

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 22:28

    classless fans

    Sharkmove_King · 22/03/2019 at 22:42

    I don't agree with it either, but I don't think it's personal.(or exclusively Pie fans) The crowd just boo good players for some reason

Rocksta_ · 22/03/2019 at 21:42

Oh how I wish I had have taken Cripps’ score last night. Grundy has lost points this qtr.

    Teddy021 · 22/03/2019 at 22:39

    I kept Cripps' points 😅

    Took it off Grundy at the last minute lol

ZzZCalintZzZ · 22/03/2019 at 21:50

Play on kick ins gravy pts but c'mon what a joke

Jack · 22/03/2019 at 21:52

Moore on the same score as Kelly at 3QT. Who would have thought that after the 1st quarter

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 22:20

    he's litteraly double his dt score

Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 21:57

I didn’t have Grundy all season last year. So this year I have decided to start him.
I really don’t know what the fuss was about. 😫

    COREYSC · 22/03/2019 at 22:42

    I agree Holty same story for me

    Saritz · 22/03/2019 at 22:52

    It’s round 1. Worse case, his avg will be 115+ by years end. So a safe bet for everyone who started him. Those that didn’t still have to waste a trade to upgrade

      Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 23:28

      True mate. Still very happy I have him. The only way I see starting Grundy as a mistake is if he doesn’t finish a top 2 ruck by seasons end

      DavidC · 23/03/2019 at 07:20

      They are not wasting a trade, that's nonsense. They just have an extra premium on another line that they don't have to waste a trade on upgrading. Same Same.

Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 22:30

Pick up Grundy for $500k in a few weeks.

    gator59 · 22/03/2019 at 22:35

    If he keeps dishing up that crap no one will want him

    Lazza · 22/03/2019 at 22:37

    He certainly wasn’t the Grundy of last year… that toe has impacted his preseason more than expected.. hats off to Stanley, was a major contributor to the win…

    Maverick_ · 22/03/2019 at 22:41

    very happy to have passed on Grundy.
    fingers crossed goldy can come out and dominate hodor sunday

    S_Cee_Genius · 22/03/2019 at 22:46

    I love it. My 270k POD ruck that enabled me to run 6 premo + Libba deep in the middle actually outscored him by 20! I was budgeting for him to be outscored by Grundy by 20-30. Massive win for me in round 1.
    Hope Max pumps out a 140+ as captain tomorrow

      Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 22:55

      Hmm, one swallow does not make a summer. Grundy could well score 150 next week and your bloke, Phillips I presume, 50. I don't own Grundy but he's class and will bounce back.

        geniusstill · 22/03/2019 at 23:04

        or he could post another sub 90 up against a far better ruck than Stanley. Philips is up against a lesser ruck than Nank next week but I'd be happy with a 70 that's all I budgeted for he only cost 270K. I'd be very dissapointed with a 120 from Grundy he costs 700k+

    Connor · 22/03/2019 at 22:58

    People going early on Grundy, RD 1 last year also happened to be his lowest score for the season (95)

      Wisdom · 22/03/2019 at 23:09

      I don't think he cost 700k+ last year Connor. Sure Pies have a very very easier first 6 games from a Rucks perspective but, He could easily drop 150k by round 6 if he doesn't ave 120+ against 4 rucks that are all better than Stanley + english.

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 22:33

Well that one hurt to lose… there goes the multi

Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 22:45

Had Danger as vc, so that didn't pay off. Gawn seems logical, but Cogs is calling out to me.

    DavidC · 23/03/2019 at 11:38

    Gawny is going to get double teamed by Lycett and Ryder. I've gone Macrae (V) into Cogs (C).

      Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 11:44

      Who's your loop

Nah_Nah_Nee_nahnah · 22/03/2019 at 22:51

Absolutely no sympathy for any users of this site that started Grundy, I've been warning against him since February and giving very valid reasons why under a variety of names. I hate to say I told you so but, I told you so.
He'll get a lot better obviously but he'll also get a lot cheaper. Phillips + 150k might get him in round 6
Well done to those who also saw the signs and didn't start him not having him will be round 1's greatest pod

    Rick Grimes · 22/03/2019 at 22:56

    Stay classy San Diego.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 22:57

    relax mate, it's been one game

      HardyHah_Hah · 22/03/2019 at 23:00

      Nah mate its been every game this year. And it was against Stanley!

        AuroraBorealis?! · 22/03/2019 at 23:03

        :thinking:

    Saritz · 22/03/2019 at 23:03

    But you are agreeing you are going to get Grundy at some point (as he will get a lot better). So those of us that start him save a trade. So it doesn’t matter his value to his owners now… we know we have a top 2 scoring ruckman. Plus if you consider the avg team value across the comp by years end is roughly $13m, and we get 30 trades… that’s $3m added value divided by 30 = $100k. So those starting with Grundy essentially have already saved $100k (1 trade). As a Grundy owner I’m disappointed with his night, but definitely not as a key player in my side.

      KeenButClueless · 22/03/2019 at 23:11

      Thanks for this. Has cheered me up. I did consider not starting Grundy (I am starting Lycett on the Forward line as cover) but there really wasn’t anyone not in my side that I really wanted. I started last season with the idea of trading up to a “proper” ruckman, but it just never happened. Always other priorities. Didn’t want to go through that again this year. Yes I am disappointed with his score. But your logic has made me feel better.

        JohnDJ59 · 22/03/2019 at 23:40

        Hi Keen, I'm still happy I didn't start with him, his form in the JLT games put me off, looking back, I've never started with the two top rucks from the previous year, only one, so went with Gawn, the only top player from the lines that I went with was Danger, no Lloyd, Macrae or Grundy, just to expensive for me, I wanted a better balanced side, I didn't start with Grundy last year either, but I managed to get him in before the byes. The guy above us said he has saved a trade by having him, but I counter that with the trade I saved by not starting him, since I used the dollars saved somewhere else in my team so we are in fact even.

          KeenButClueless · 22/03/2019 at 23:51

          Hi John. Yes, it was you who came close to convincing me not to start him. There was no F3 that was convincing, and by moving Lycett into the ruck, that was the role I needed. Mundy was the only one I really considered. That gave me 190k to put on the top of someone, and all that was a rookie to a mid pricer. It didn’t feel like it strengthened my side enough. So I went back to Grundy. I am glad you were able to use the dollars saved better than I was able to. Hope both our decisions can work out for us!

            JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 00:19

            Hi Keen, I have to say it wasn't a decision that I made lightly, considering I'd had the Grundy/Gawn combo up until the JLT games, I was pretty set on the two, but Grundys form in those two games made me uneasy, for a player costing over 700k I expected more, plus I kept looking at my team and the nine rookies on the field and that worried me, so I did a U turn and changed mostly the whole structure of my team, not counting the mids, that didn't change. I was ready for Grundy to do well once I made that decision, but I was still happy with it due to the improvements I made. If I had been like you and hadn't been happy with the changes that I could do, I wouldn't have gone ahead with it either. We have to be happy with our teams and what we start with, in the end we all make our own decisions, good luck to you too Keen.

            Derek · 23/03/2019 at 00:22

            I thought the same. Had my team set. To change Grundy to Lycett or Goldy I couldn’t see what I would do with the cash to make it any better. So went back to Grundy.

              Beezneez · 23/03/2019 at 11:29

              I had Goldy T Kelly d4 and Cottrell for a couple of weeks. Changed at the last minute to Grundy Moore and Walsh. Wished I had left it the way it was. Gotta stop taking notice of certain experts and go with my gut.

    Derek · 23/03/2019 at 00:17

    Well done

    What’s your team name so we can follow you this year and learn from the best?

    Sharkmove_King · 23/03/2019 at 06:30

    What warning? I've never seen you post anything before ….Unless if you're someone who posts under several names in which case I can't take your advice because it's probably wrong 9 times out of 10 but you can hide behind a different alias.

    Northerner · 23/03/2019 at 07:11

    Well done. Although what do you do when Kruezer gets named round 3? Phillips out? Might work for you, but too risky for mine.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 12:31

      Grundy 81 even with 5 FA
      Saved a trade selecting him. He will be top 2 Rucks even if you think it's a win getting him for 600k what scores will you miss out on in the coming month? Time will tell

        JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:19

        Not sure how you saved a trade selecting him or about the points we will miss out on, since the money left over by not starting him was used to bolster other lines, hence a saved trade and more points on those lines, so it evens itself out and we get Grundy for 100k less than those starting with him.

Connor · 22/03/2019 at 23:09

What are everyone's thoughts on Crisp? Was Lachie Whitfield at 20k more worth it?

    Ja191 · 22/03/2019 at 23:33

    Good pick shouldn’t drop in price and will be around top 6-8. You can pick whitfield up for cheaper later

Holty01 · 22/03/2019 at 23:22

Grundy vc is a fail. Now to decide on Gawn or Macrae?🤔

    Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 12:08

    Ive gone with Gawn at home Holty

Northerner · 23/03/2019 at 07:12

There’s a lot of Grundy banter about his price dropping. Just the normal health warning for this time of year……

Rd 1 games are worth one third of the value of a normal round. Round 2 games are worth two thirds the value. Just a function of the two round price lock.

Same with the rookies. Next week’s games are worth double the value of Rd 1. Balta could go back and score 75 and his 18 would be insignificant.

    Northerner · 23/03/2019 at 07:14

    Just trying to say more patience and less reactivity is required in Rd 1 – and actually allowed for in the construct of the game.

Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 08:29

Grundy 5 free kicks against wouldn't of helped his scoring, probably would of tonned up without that. Also had alot of tap outs sharked by a quality Geelong midfeild.
Still had 14 contested, not sure what everyone is so worried about. He will be fine

    Sharkmove_King · 23/03/2019 at 09:07

    True. Also missed 2 goals (2nd q & 4th q) that he would normally have kicked. 85% tog does seem slightly down on last year so hopefully that picks up a bit too.

    Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 09:20

    True nice. Still very happy I have him.
    How ur team looking and how ur rd 1 score looking?

      Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 09:58

      Yeah he wouldn't be 100% fit cardio wise so that run would of done him the world of good. Yep those two goals and he would of also tonned up with the 5 frees against.

      Not too bad hotly, made a silly decision, got excited to watch the footy and brought in T Lynch 5 mins before the bounce. So I was pretty annoyed with his 20 dropped marks. Thay can always be corrected if need be.
      How about you mate?

        Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 12:08

        At least he was getting his hands to it. The run will do him good. In a few weeks he will be holding them.

        Holty01 · 25/03/2019 at 09:25

        Can’t complain with my round. Only mistake was the vc and c selections from me. Went both Grundy and Gawn. But I’ve become use to that now as very rarely do I get that part right

    UpBeat · 23/03/2019 at 10:00

    Grundy looked tired 2nd half which allowed Stanley to play well and Cats win. In the 1st half the Cats looked ordinary because of Grundy dominance.

JEL · 23/03/2019 at 09:23

Interesting point spread at Geelong.
Half the team(11) at the top only separated by 20 points.

No real standouts. If this is a trend for the year it makes you think twice about putting the C on a Geelong player.

    Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 09:55

    Hard to call trends one game in mate, the stars will still be stars this year

    COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 11:39

    But also good sign for the Geelong rookies

Alferton · 23/03/2019 at 10:16

I have Constable 85 on the bench with the Emergency on him. Is it worth taking butters off the field and put him onto the bench. Take B. Scott out of the team and put a non playing rookie on the field to get Constables points.

    Ja191 · 23/03/2019 at 10:24

    No

    Funkhouser · 23/03/2019 at 10:24

    No

    Nice_Person · 23/03/2019 at 10:50

    Yes, take away a cash gaining option in your team for the difference between butters and 85 points. Which will probably be 0-30 difference

    Sharkmove_King · 23/03/2019 at 10:54

    No way! Butters could beat that, most likely he will go mighty close

    kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 12:16

    No

    Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:40

    oh dear god….

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:47

    You'll do better in the long run not doing silly things like that Alf, that's just a pure wasted trade, and will hurt your cash generation.

    gator59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:42

    Bank the points

Steve · 23/03/2019 at 10:54

Went all in on Danger as Captain,in hindsight should of taken Cripps anyone else with the same problem.

    Pranav Santhosh · 23/03/2019 at 13:47

    Yep made the same mistake here thank god for his goal late in the 3rd

    Lazza · 23/03/2019 at 14:20

    Same

    KSinny · 23/03/2019 at 14:21

    Did the same but captained Grundy 🙁

dontblushbaby · 23/03/2019 at 11:35

Tom Sparrow Mid 117k might be a late in for Jordan Lewis – Hamstring

    kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 12:32

    Damn shame Gibbons has already played.

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 14:11

    Sparrow going well in the first quarter.

MattL · 23/03/2019 at 12:04

Brayshaw & Dunkley F3

Cogs & Darling F3

    Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:00

    brayshaw & dunk

TelescopicCox · 23/03/2019 at 12:07

Scrimshaw & Schultz or Joyce & Petruccelle. Last rookie spots. I had Clarke R3 but need to rearrange since he’s not named

    kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 12:22

    Can you do Scrimshaw and Petruccelle? Look better on pre-season form and JS (if Scrimshaw performs).

    Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:41

    scrim & schulz

    Schulz can surprise a few people he will do well i think

Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 12:14

Really torn Fyfe or Neale l think without help alot of teams wont punt on Fyfe but im thinking he could thrive 🤔

MattL · 23/03/2019 at 12:20

Brayshaw OR Brad Crouch for M5??

I'm not sure brayshaw is worth the 110k more is he? brad is meant to be a jet if he stays fit ( which i think he will)
there is just an equal of chance brayshaw will get KO'd as crouch will do something imo.
could give me something like this:

Brayshaw & greene F4

Crouch & darling F4

would love a helping hand

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 12:26

    Brayshaw and Greene.

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:52

      Crouch & darling

    MattL · 23/03/2019 at 13:16

    i have 30 min to decide and a 50/50 split on the vote.

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:22

      I think with the 1st guy of each 2, you need to ask yourself, which one is more likely to be a keeper, and or last the whole season ?
      Greene ain't exactly a safe pick either though, you could flip a coin?

        MattL · 23/03/2019 at 13:31

        either could be keepers with brayshaw/crouch could flip a coin brayshaw alot of upside though.
        but darling more likely keeper over greene.

      JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:25

      I'm going with a 5-0-3 mid line, if you want B.Crouch I think he should be M6 not M5. Or go with a top premo in the mids and a rookie at F4.

        MattL · 23/03/2019 at 13:30

        not sure after drew & setterfield i trust a rookie at F4 John.
        But i see what you mean

          JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:41

          I have to admit, I only have two rookies on field in the fwd line, but we will know more about them after this round.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 12:24

Didnt see the game last night but was a close one

Looking at sc scores it seems a game where there was a pretty even spread of pts.

Lots of banter about Grundy but not much on danger who also failed to ton up.

Cats rookies went ok will front up again next week

That is all …

    Rick Grimes · 23/03/2019 at 12:34

    Danger butchered a couple of easy goals. So should have been around the 120. He wasn't great tho.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:52

    Hey Trig, yeah lot's of butchery and mistakes on both sides, was very scrappy so hence the lower scores spread around, still an entertaining close game though, gotta expect players to be rusty in the skills early.
    Constable got 20 points for a goal late, which boosted his score. Clark was pretty solid, my prize recruit De Goey looked a bit unco and not too fit, screwed up an easy goal shot too by handballing it to a guy under pressure. Hoping he gets better soon. 🙂

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:58

      yeah i got sucked into the pre game hype was buzzing fridy night footy was back and made a fundamental mistake coniglio -> treloar. adam dominated with 34 touches 5 marks 6 tackles and a goal but absolutely butchered his disposal only gave me 102 pts. cogs will smash that unfortunately. now i am wondering how to get cogs in today haha

      rookies all looked good though no reason for them to lose there places after that game.

        Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:09

        I reckon Treloar will be ok Mav, he's a ball magnet and does butcher it at times but still generally tons up which is a bonus, they weren't handing out SC points easy last night!

kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 12:28

Round 1, don't panic community. No need to change structures you spent weeks agonising over. Wait till Tuesday, assess where your picks played and what their roles might be, THEN make adjustment trades. If all your picks played, including rookies, and roles look to be as you thought, then wait another round before trading. Unless some of your rookies really stink up after Round 2, try not to waste precious trades early. Hang in there community. Continued luck for the season.

Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:37

people should be giving Fremantles Lachie Schulz some real thought for a fwd bench spot…
the 21 year old can seriously play

    kyle · 23/03/2019 at 12:46

    would u go him over petruccle

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:50

      yeah i would.. i took parker over pettrucelle on JS and now thinking schulz over parker.
      There are a few to come back into freo's side but lachie is a small forward who works hard i think he has good JS

    kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 12:47

    Will wait for Balta's points in Rd2, but Schulz does look good as a straight swap.

      kyle · 23/03/2019 at 12:52

      yeh might go balter to Schultz if balta doesnt perform

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 12:54

      they reckon down at tigerland balta is actually a real handy def…
      wouldnt it be nice if they swung him down back for rance and gave him an opportunity there

        kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 13:14

        That would be nice.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 15:30

        Reckon that is what will happen

Ricky · 23/03/2019 at 12:54

Burgess, Durrsma or Hore to start on field and why?

    kevwal · 23/03/2019 at 13:09

    Can only, really, go on JLT form. PPM tells us it is Duursma, but not by much over Hore. Burgess, I feel, will be a slow burn rookie who is there for the swing opportunity.

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:33

      Hore.
      Lewis a late out does this allow hore to take a few kick outs? i hope so!
      i benched duursma just now for hore

        kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 16:51

        Oh no – still a good decision all things taken into consideration

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 14:28

    Duursma since he will most probably be playing on the wing.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 15:04

    Duursma cause it's half time and he's on 48 points.

My team is complete. SHARK MOVES are plenty. It is different to most teams and I can guarantee no one will like it. Feel free to take inspiration from it and be bold to do your own SHARK moves.

DEF: Hurn, Shaw, Mills, Williams, Smith, Duursma – Burgess, Hore.

MID: Martin, MCrouch, Merrett, O’Meara, BCrouch, Libba, Walsh, Drew – Constance, Scott, Gibbons

RUC: Goldy, Lycett – Bines

FWD: Dangerfield, Heeney, Mundy, Kelly, Rozee, Seetefield – Pettucelle, Parker

$3,300 in bank

SHARK MOVE 1 – 5 rookies on field (including Walsh and Settefield). Can’t rely on rookies scoring points.

SHARK MOVE 2 – only one player over $600,000. Dangerfield. Too many rule changes this year to be sure the expensive player will score like they have in past

SHARK MOVE 3 – No Grundy, No Gawn. Just too expensive. Will be happy with Goldy and swing Lycett forward once I decide which of the other two I like.

SHARK MOVE 4 – deep forward line. No rookies to pick, get guns.

SHARK MOVE 5 – unique players. Big PODs. Heath Shaw will take every kick. JOM won’t get as many as Titch but he will go close. Merrett is easy top 8 midfielder, thank you moonboot to scare everyone away. Lycett 2 years after his ACL will be in top 5 rucks. Mundy is 100% midfield this year with good rucks. Rozee if you watch his under 18 highlights reel you won’t hesitate to get him.

Good luck everyone and see you in the leagues

    Sharkmove_King · 23/03/2019 at 13:30

    I don't mind it, its certainly unique. Not too many guys I would question. I would have liked to see Rozee gone and Drew forward and Atkins m10.

    Maybe with the extra coin, the Hoff instead of Lycett, or Shaw to a more trusted premium….but you're obviously set on those 3 so who knows they might be better. Good luck!

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:33

    The players names are Constable and Setterfield, not Constance and Seetefield.

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 13:36

    Not mad about your team, but it's better than I first thought it was.

    Derek · 23/03/2019 at 13:57

    Mills is a POD as well.

10 min 🙁

help please

    Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:42

    cogs & darling

Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 13:52

last night i had the C on bines at R2 but something happened since then and it reverted back to Gawn.
I was happy with Cripps VC score but looks like im cheering on Max today haha oops

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 14:12

    At this stage I'm thinking of coaches who did not pick both Grundy and Gawn. Could be a huge difference in the season. Time will tell

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 14:14

    Not looking good in the first quarter. Do you have a cut off point you normally go on, mine is 125, so Cripps just got over the line.

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 14:31

      yeah i usually take 125-130 john and was meant to take cripps score it but i think when i traded sweet -> bines it swapped the C back to gawn from sweet & i did not realise. Gawn looks absolutely exhausted out there he doesnt look fit at all

        JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 14:37

        Bloody hell that is bad luck, it always pays to double check that type of stuff before a game starts, I'm a bit paranoid like that.

Fisherdann · 23/03/2019 at 14:29

Is anyone thinking of going McKay, Wilkie or Joyce over Burgess?

JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 14:30

Salem, my POD pick for D2 is looking a good call, wish I'd had enough confidence to pick him myself.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 14:59

    Yeah he looks good John, as does Harmes picking up where he left off last year, Gawny's copping a bit of a working over, I reckon he'll bounce back strong in the 2nd half.
    He needs to unleash the fury of the beard.

      Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 15:07

      2nd half can only get better.
      i'll take a 47 from gawn with that performance

      JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 15:11

      I've always liked Salem as a player, he can score big, but he has his off days as well, which is why I didn't pick him, he was in there for while though, but just didn't have the nerve to go through with it, in case it blew up in my face.

Yeahyrah · 23/03/2019 at 14:53

Any cheap ruckman playing this weekend?

hedski · 23/03/2019 at 15:07

Righto I've made two mistakes already, punted on Danger to top Crippas VC score and fielded Atkins over Butters.
I shouldn't fiddle with my side when I have my cats beer goggles on.
Probably cost me at least 50 points.
At least we got the win last night 👍

    BrownlowBoy · 23/03/2019 at 15:08

    Go Cattas

      hedski · 23/03/2019 at 15:09

      Good win BB.
      Rohan for the Brownlow. 🤣

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 15:43

      Would have been nice if u accepted my trade in draft BB.

      offer still stands ….

      COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 15:50

      Go Cats! Superb Win last night

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 15:12

    Know the feeling mate, fielded Atkins also with Constable and Drew on the bench but how are you supposed to know?…lol, bloody rookies.
    At least I've got Duursma Fred on instead of dirty Hore 🙂

      JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 15:21

      Hey Russty, did you have Drew in the mids and not in the fwd line ?

        Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 15:22

        Yeah mate, wanted a swingman in there.

    Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 15:38

    🤦‍♂️

      hedski · 23/03/2019 at 15:41

      Ha ha, it was a close but scrappy game Shake, skills will pick up over the next couple of weeks.

    Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 15:47

    Hedski, i wish i never picked my side, Grundy has looked ordinary all preseason and now last nights efforts?? Gawn looking ordinary too!! ballsy double downgrade for a big cash grab and fix some spots brfore rd3

      Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 15:50

      I also had Atkins on over Constable, and Clark on bench, but have the three PA boys on field, all look great

      hedski · 23/03/2019 at 15:52

      I have Grawndy too Hawk, not stressed they're just blowing the cobwebs out.
      As someone said earlier round one scores won't affect prices much, they could both pull out 160's the next two weeks.

        Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 16:07

        Yeah i know mate, like i said, would be ballsy, but i am concerned with Grundy Hed,,,

    neil demons delight · 23/03/2019 at 18:09

    a fired up DEES next week Hedski/BB careful

      hedski · 23/03/2019 at 18:37

      Bring it on NDD!

Browncow · 23/03/2019 at 15:13

Anyone else’s rookies out scoring their premos? Early signs but seems Port’s recruiters know what they are doing!

    COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 15:50

    Yeah great stuff from Butters, Drew and duursma have them all on my field wow Rozee also snuck under the radar as a pricy mid rookie but he’s having a ripper game too!

SC_Donkey · 23/03/2019 at 15:24

Kicking myself atm, included Grundy and slapped the C on him. Then taken out Westhoff, Goldie, Williams, Crisp and M Crouch, while included Hurn, Macrea and Whitfield. I hope it's doesn't bite me in the long run.

    kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 16:50

    Part of the fun of Rd1 is panic picking have your team while all your well laid plans cry in the corner – that's how Oliver got the C chucked on him and not Crouch and also how Menegola made his way into the team 3 mins before the bounce

NewsFlash · 23/03/2019 at 15:44

A lot of self professed supercoach experts with so much egg on their smug faces this round.
At least 1 of Grundy and Gawn are must haves to start but both is better because you'll lose too many points – Fail
Rockliff no good – Fail
Boak not a valid forward choice – Fail
Viney will take points off Brayshaw – Fail
Walsh the best bet mid rookie – Fail

And we're only 3 games in!

Of course they'll all claim "It's only round 1" just like they claimed "You can't evaluate players based on JLT"

Face it you ego maniacs unless you are the reigning Supercoach winner you know no more about the game than the 200,000+ rest of us and you have no right giving advice.

    Goat___23 · 23/03/2019 at 15:49

    Mate chill out. Gawn and Grundy will both score 125+ next week. Brayshaw is currently on 59 at 3QT. I don’t remember anyone saying Boak wasnt a ‘valid’ option? Pretty sure people just preferred Kelly/Dunkley, some even went Mundy. 68 from Walsh is still serviceable, and from what we’ve seen in the JLT and his junior years he should still score 80s. Not everyone scores 90 points in their debut in Round 1 in front of 85k mate.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 15:52

      And yet it's 1 round. That egg you speak of is still sitting on a shelve at the local supermarket. Not on anyone's face yet

    Teddy021 · 23/03/2019 at 16:15

    Chill out, it's Round 1….

    Boris_Baconbeer · 23/03/2019 at 16:28

    Amateur Troll Alert!!! Could do what you did (cherry pick) with any year in any website like this. Nothing to see here.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 16:43

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Whether you follow that or not is up to you. 🙊

    kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 16:45

    Hey mate, this community rarely has 'laws' of who to pick but like any community it does follow generally advised wisdoms. Every season, some of that wisdom proves folly and then the community can laugh about Billings and Hibbo being such spuds only to jump back on next season but your negativity really ruins the 'fun' element of Supercoach.

    It's round 1, relax.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:12

    If you have any more tips on how the future's gonna go, I'd be interested in this week's Lotto numbers.
    Must've been time for your weekly random attack on the regulars here ay?…hope you feel better now 🙂

      COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 17:16

      If he’s that mad now imagine what he’ll be like by the bye rounds😂long season! One round doesn’t define the advice given in this group!

    ThatsGoldJerry · 23/03/2019 at 17:15

    I would love to see your full team and then we can all see how you fair in a months time. Why such venom ?

    Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 11:02

    I wish I'd followed some of the advice given out on this site about particular players. Some names mentioned include Sloane, Worpel, Sheed, Westhoff, Rockliff, Salem, Andrews etc.

    Kewbie Bear · 24/03/2019 at 11:30

    Walsh will have plenty of decent scores, he runs hard, accumulates, he just lacked execution in his first game against one of the best defensive teams in the comp. Hardly panic stations

Derek · 23/03/2019 at 16:10

I didn’t see game. But why is Oliver’s TOG so low?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 16:14

    Nothing wrong with him
    The new system using signs instead of runners has made it hard to get back on the ground. Some players being stuck on the bench for 5+ mins

      kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 16:46

      *Weeps in Team Captain*

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 16:46

      Could this be one (no runner time spent on tbe bench) that has flown under the radar and be one of the most significant rule changes that has the greatest impact on a players score?

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:32

    Oliver and Max got bashed around early, I think that was Port's strategy against them, both took some heavy hits, also heard the commentators say Oliver and Brayshaw were beaten by Rocky and Boak in the middle.

      Brn · 23/03/2019 at 17:51

      I nearly won overall once, so while im not the ''reigning supercoach premier', finishing in top ten would say im not useless like you say. Granted, i'm having an absolute shit week, and might have a shit year. But you would expect it to all even out in the end, and if you think stanley is a better pick than gawn or grundy, you really wont get far

        Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:56

        Who said that Brn?…it wasn't me mate.

    Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 19:16

    Didn’t handle the heat

Pickle · 23/03/2019 at 16:20

Sean Darcy???

    Pickle · 23/03/2019 at 16:21

    Or even Lewis pierce?

AuroraBorealis?! · 23/03/2019 at 16:21

Jeez, Rocky looks enticing. Is he finally over his shoulder issues? Or is he just scoring well because Wines is out of the team

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 17:05

    I think no Polec and Wingard helps too. They used Ebert up forward rather than Rocky today too

Maverick_ · 23/03/2019 at 16:28

having Oliver, Brayshaw & Gawn hurts.. no doubt there were plenty of others with that trio though and how good did rocky look.
unsure if he will do that when wines returns but he looked very good

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 16:34

    Just happy Max managed to outscore Grundy.

    Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 16:35

    On the money Mav,

Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 16:32

CARN THE HAWKERS!!!

    Derek · 23/03/2019 at 20:49

    Oh yeah

kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 16:38

Can't win every day, but man captaining Oliver was a mistake – barely got out on the field after half time.

Brn · 23/03/2019 at 17:10

This week has been so bad that i'm starting a new team as of next round. Will be full of the pods that scored well this round, and I'm hoping it will win a weekly. God dam supercoach. Balta on field, grundy vc and gawn as captain. Jesus.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:24

    I don't think you can quit once you've started Brn, only allowed 1 side I think, you didn't do anything wrong, just unlucky this week, I had some stinker scores too with Oliver, Brayshaw, Gawn, picked the wrong rookie on field instead of Drew, just gotta stick with it mate, it's only one week.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 17:26

      Yup don't worry mate 100k coaches will be doing 2 correctives over the next 2 weeks

        Brn · 23/03/2019 at 17:40

        Thanks guys. I did more research than anyone and are more disappointed than i should be over this

          Ja191 · 23/03/2019 at 17:41

          Marathon not a sprint mate, forget this round

          Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:43

          I'll be pushing it uphill to hit 2000 from here, cest la vie !

            neil demons delight · 23/03/2019 at 17:59

            That's good Russty 1800 here worst start ever but a bit to go yet never know

            Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:01

            Bloody nice blokes on this site thats for sure

          Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 18:06

          More research than anyone? WOW?? And what? think you should be king?? Man you think a lot of yourself,

            Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:18

            Mate all i'm saying is i, sadly, have spent the best part of the last few months reading everything sc related. Nobody is 'king', but i have previously finished top ten overall, and top 500 overall. I'll be the first to say my team is shit asofar, but i'll be dammed if hours of research isnt worth it

              Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:21

              If you are saying that research isnt relevant, you really are a fool

                Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 18:25

                No im saying youre not giving anyone else any respect, we all do a tone of homework!!

                  Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:28

                  No need to argue fellas, don't think Brn was implying anything Hawk, he's just disappointed in his team this week, as probably a lot of us are, always next week! 🙂
                  I've done a shit tonne of research too but it didn't amount to shit this week haha

                    Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:30

                    And im sure that rusty is a better chance than most due to that research

Ben · 23/03/2019 at 17:35

Sloane was such an obvious pick at that price. Glad I didn't listen to people saying he'll get tagged out of it.

    kinglear009 · 23/03/2019 at 17:40

    Haha I was definitely one of those people – still not sure he can handle a tag, but when teams let him run he's a beast.

      Ben · 23/03/2019 at 17:45

      Not sure if it's the new rules but no one has really got tagged so far this season. Next week Sloane has Sydney so will be interesting to see if he gets the Hewett tag.

        Brn · 23/03/2019 at 17:59

        Its one week

        Sharkmove_King · 23/03/2019 at 18:17

        Not sure if any of the tagging teams have played yet, except Hawthorn, but I don't believe Howe played

    Rocksta_ · 23/03/2019 at 19:43

    He still can’t handle a tag. Didn’t get tagged today. Will next week

    _Kyle · 23/03/2019 at 19:56

    Just like 30 others seem obvious picks after seeing a big first round scores…sloane is at a non injury affected 520k for a good reason. Give the bloke a little attention and he can do nothing about it.

Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 17:44

Wow. Went Grundy as vc and Gawn as C. Did not see this coming

    neil demons delight · 23/03/2019 at 17:56

    same Hotly no need to panic yet or rage trade

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:58

    Cunnova game Holty…I've got one ton so far, shocker! lol

    Brn · 23/03/2019 at 17:58

    Did the same mate. Doedee was also my backline pod, and he was going great. Oh yes and i started balta, and had oliver..

    This game isnt fair. Regrouping for next week

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:09

      That's a huge bummer Brn, could maybe go to Newman now for Doedee, I had Doedee in my draft side, Crows will miss him, could've become a premo this year.

Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:50

Terrible news for Tom Doedee and the Crows, such a good young player, really sad when good players go down in the first round.

BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 17:53

Lock in Docherty, Rance and Doedee in the backline next year !

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 17:59

    Or this year if you want some real pods…sorry, bad taste.

      BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 18:06

      Don't need any more shark moves Russty, im hanging on to the edge of my pants with Rocky, Sheed, Hanley, Williams, Crouch, Libba, Greene lol

        Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:11

        Nice Rocky score today Josh!, I have Williams, Libba and Greene too, at least Libba's prediction score was 14 for some reason, should improve on that.

          Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:13

          Noticed libbas 14 prediction lol

          BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 18:13

          Hopefully !

Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:07

Doedee (pod) acl is enough to make me cry

Jack · 23/03/2019 at 18:14

Anyone else field Balta and Scrimshaw ffs…

    Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:24

    Same here mate. Scrimshaw at least still has a shot

    _Kyle · 23/03/2019 at 19:52

    Il happily take a 56 from scrimshaw considering some of the junk thats been thrown our way thus far.

BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 18:15

Scrimshaw maaan, hurts even more with Duursma and Hore on the bench. And i passed on Moore/ridley for him.

Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 18:20

I'm going to put it out there right now, Rucks are out!! mark my words, game has changed!!!

    Brn · 23/03/2019 at 18:26

    Was just thinking this. Does 666 mean a less congested game, and less hitouts? Feels like this should have been foreseen.

      Travis · 23/03/2019 at 18:32

      Ffs i too have grundy and gawn. They are premos and cost mega $. I honestly dont know if i hold or downgrade burning 2 trades this week. Gut feel is to wait a week. Nank the tank scored better. 666 burned alive

        _Kyle · 23/03/2019 at 19:40

        Trading out both big men would have to be the worst move i have ever seen in my years playing SC. Its round 1 mate ease up.

        Nank is a ruck with a far less SC friendly play style than grundy and he scored well. Grawndy had a bad week. The power made it a team effort to hit push knock shove and pester gawn for the whole game and virtually the entire demons side had a shocker. Both will bounce back. Even if the 666 rule has a negative impact on rucks it certainly isnt a -50 point difference

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:35

    Can i just say…don't panic, and be patient, you picked them for a reason.

    Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 18:45

    Not panicking. just see the 666 doesnt seem to be helping rucks? something ive noticed

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:59

      Grundy had 6 clangers, 5 frees against, only 2 tackles and 2 marks for the whole game,with 18 disposals, he normally does a lot better than that, nothing to do with the rules…probably just rust.
      Gawn had 3 clangers, 2 frees against, only 2 tackles and 3 marks from 13 disposals.
      Both had a decent amount of hitouts, not that many to advantage though, I think to trade them out after 1 game could be very regretful.

        neil demons delight · 23/03/2019 at 19:58

        You will find the dees will get better as a whole Rusty .Goodwin has said the short turnaround affected preseason but they managed their workloads to fit it in to the shortened preseason. A good way of saying we are underdone .Watch for a better dees against the cats. Grundy copped a few hard calls and missed a sitter. No need to worry.

          Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 20:13

          I'm not worried mate, I'm sure they will, a week's a week, it was hot too wasn't it?, Gawny will be fine, Oliver's haircut is a bit of a worry, is that a permed Mohawk?…LOL

    Lazza · 23/03/2019 at 19:34

    Don’t know about the Rucks Hawk but wasn’t 666 supposed to create more space and goals …. 8 teams have hit the park so far and not a ton amongst them..

      Lazza · 23/03/2019 at 19:35

      Oh, Shaker just said that… 🙁

        Hawk131415 · 23/03/2019 at 20:42

        Spot on Lazza, also noticed that too

Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 18:37

Gotta say, I'm surprised Adelaide are doing so badly, thought they'd be powerhouses this year, that being said, it's only the first week and the Hawks have been a good well managed side for a long time now.

    Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 10:50

    Hawthorn pressured the Crows non stop and forced them to bomb long to contests where the Crows were usually outnumbered. Doedee going down didn't help. Two goals seven points in the last quarter also didn't help when at least three of them should've been goals and game on. Abysmal effort from the Crows. Only one favoured team (Richmond) has won so far.

Teddy021 · 23/03/2019 at 19:12

Was anyone brave enough to pick Sloane and the Couch brothers?

    Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 20:22

    I picked Sloane and M Crouch. Also picked Rocky.
    But had the C on Gawn so ends up averaging out.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/03/2019 at 20:51

    i've got sloane and matt crouch mate, happy with those choices at least

    COREYSC · 23/03/2019 at 22:31

    I have te Crouch Brothers i’m Content with te result was hoping for more from B.Crouch but not a bad return to AFL

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:46

      Are you Mexican or something Corey, or do you just have an aversion to h's?….B.Crouch , risky pick, hope he doesn't break apart at the seams for you like the last 7 years.

        COREYSC · 24/03/2019 at 08:16

        Have to wait and see Russty, two massive intro club matches and then the two JLT games I just couldn’t ignore him in the end, hopefully he stays in one peace!

ABorealis · 23/03/2019 at 19:20

I bet you’re glad I didn’t accept your May for doedee trade now aren’t you Fin? Also as a side note if anyone wants a value crows player in the backline in my draft league, hit me up!

Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 19:22

No full time scores over 100!

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 19:30

    Helluva week ay Shake?…I've got 3 now with Laird and M.Crouch's just in…lol

    JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 19:36

    I have three so far, Drew, Cripps and M.Crouch.

    Shake_n_bake · 23/03/2019 at 19:44

    I meant no team that has played yet has scored over 100. I thought with the new rules the game was suppose to open up.

      JohnDJ59 · 23/03/2019 at 19:56

      OK, I got it.

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 20:15

      Oh ok, wasn't sure what you meant, I think they did it to reduce the amount of blowout scores.

      Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 20:24

      Yeah it’s bad isn’t it Shake. The AFL can’t help themselves. It was in a great state and they keep changing it for no reason. I’m sure in a few weeks though the games will open up and some big scores will come.

    Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 00:56

    I love the 6 6 6. In both of the cats v pies & demons v port games in the close moments there were some crucial clearances late where they couldn’t flood and made it interesting gave the teams opportunities. I’m a big fan. Agree with holty the scores should come 🙂

dontblushbaby · 23/03/2019 at 20:45

FFS – Heeney playing Fwd & Mills playing Back, change it up Horse , you're getting flogged mate

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 21:23

    Makes no sense to waste Heeney like this.

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:17

      Kinda like letting Howe kick in the other night when Darcy was practicing for it in the pre-season and Howe kicks it straight down the opposition's throat in the last quarter to lose the game. Good call Coach!…then Buckley proceeded to blame his players for the loss.

BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 21:23

Fyfe or Coniglio?

    dontblushbaby · 23/03/2019 at 21:43

    Mate, I had the same issue all week, I went with my gut with Fyfe , happy to roll the dice with him, but please don't blame me if you go with him and it goes bad , cheers

      BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 21:49

      My gut says Fyfe also however, if i downgrade to Cogs, i can corrective trade Petrevski seton to fisher or worpel next week? Does that change your opinion or do you think i'm overreacting over 1 week?

        dontblushbaby · 23/03/2019 at 22:13

        Wait until the round has finished, however be careful of just chasing points , its only round 1

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 21:51

    In my ideal world, Fyfe scores 150 this week, he's my Capi-tain 🙂

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:18

    Fyfe has better hair, and wears an NBA style arm sleeve, that seals it for me.

Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 21:25

It’s amazing how one poor decision can be the difference between a good score and a great score. Going Gawn over Macrae as my captain might be a big mistake how this round is going

    Derek · 23/03/2019 at 23:03

    I went Oliver

      JEL · 24/03/2019 at 16:50

      Glad I stuck with Cripps VC score.
      Out of my other possible C options only Macrae scored better.

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 23:07

    At least you 2 amazing bastards had all the right players in your sides to start with, so don't despair, It'll all even out in the long run.

BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 21:25

Praise be to Rocky and Sheed !

    Derek · 23/03/2019 at 23:02

    What will happen when Wines and Gaff are back?

      Northerner · 23/03/2019 at 23:20

      Sheed played JLT with Gaff. No risk there. Sheed is playing Priddis’ old role which Redden stepped into last year. Sheed has better DE than Redden and is fully safe. Just waiting in the bus line from the game. Sheed will get the Brownlow votes tonight. His sureness under pressure was exceptional.

        Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 23:28

        I think Neale pips him for the 3.

Dan · 23/03/2019 at 21:46

Do prices change after round 1 or 3?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 21:48

    3, round 1 has the least influence on price increase compared to round 2

Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 21:54

Oh well Macrae's made his b/e for the week…guess I'll get him when hell freezes over lol

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 22:06

    1 of the 7

    Handy Capt. 😁

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:13

      I'll 7 your reasons.

Tommo09 · 23/03/2019 at 21:58

What score is everyone looking at?

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:09

    Somewhere between Dawg Shite and Baboon's Breath Tommo, maybe 2000, it's touch and go.

      BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 22:39

      hahaha

    KSinny · 23/03/2019 at 22:34

    1718 with 4 to go so hopefully close to 2100

    BlueBaggerJosh · 23/03/2019 at 22:40

    Around 2200

      Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:42

      Son of a biatch lol

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 22:53

        2040-2090 for me I reckon. M.Crouch, Rocky, Macrae, Cripps my only 120+ scores. Been a testing first round so far

          Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 22:57

          That'll teach ya Dave, you should call yourself Dave again, all those ZzZz's make me want to go to sleep ,ZzzZZ..2050, I'd be happy with that mr Sandman 🙂

            ZzZCalintZzZ · 23/03/2019 at 22:58

            Cheers lol
            This is my Server based game name 😂

      Tommo09 · 23/03/2019 at 22:48

      Wow nice

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/03/2019 at 23:11

    im on 1854 with three to go, so looking at around 2100-2200. Have Z.Williams, Billings and Schultz to play so who knows really

    _Kyle · 23/03/2019 at 23:16

    I may just scrape past 2000 if i get lucky. Likely score will be around 1950

    Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 23:30

    2134 with Williams to play.

    Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 00:49

    Had a relatively high risk high reward side an so far not working out. On track for 1980-2040 with the captain loophole mistake costing me close to 90 pts

      Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 08:25

      How'd it cost you 90 mav?

        Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 12:18

        Yeah MAV. Was that 90 a typo?
        My last minute decision to go Gawn instead of Macrae was costly but still only cost me 44.

    Defying_Madness · 24/03/2019 at 03:40

    Sitting on 1865 currently with Green, Williams and Coniglio to go. Hopefully will hit 2200

    Pranav Santhosh · 24/03/2019 at 05:34

    Projected for 2121 so really happy with that. Gambled with C danger over VC Cripps if I held onto Cripps score would be hitting 2150 either way really happy

    Great fact hunt · 24/03/2019 at 05:44

    1680 with 6 to go maybe 2250. Happy with that start. Think it will be overs this week.

      Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 12:20

      Who you still have to play GFH?

    COREYSC · 24/03/2019 at 08:04

    Probably just under 2,200

    hedski · 24/03/2019 at 08:44

    I'm on 1812 with Collins, Cogs and Williams to come, might push 2100 if lucky.

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 09:52

    Sitting on 1637 with Coniglio the captain, Billings, Z Williams, and Goldstein to play. I reckon with a bit of luck, I am looking at 2150-2200.

    Danners · 24/03/2019 at 11:22

    1518 with with Fyfe (C), Whitfield and 3 rookies to come. Having Drew on the bench hurts

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/03/2019 at 22:43

just throwing it out there for the lads in fins draft league.

either mcbags or berry are up for trade in fins or a decent dfefender.

both sitting on a 100 pts 5 mins into last qtr.

bit of a waste sitting on the pine at the moment,

    Russty_ · 23/03/2019 at 23:10

    I'll trade ya JJ Top Deck for a decent forward, he'll be back soon.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/03/2019 at 09:30

      Only trading mids.

      I did acquire Smith recently up fwd but. 🤣

Goat___23 · 23/03/2019 at 23:10

What score is everyone looking at? Currently at 1738 with Williams, Taranto, Merrett and Scott to come

    Iamme · 23/03/2019 at 23:57

    I played 6 rookies on field and lucky for me they all came off, as the lowest score between them was 67 (and no I didn't pick Walsh). I am currently on 1718 with Fyfe, Williams, Mcgrath and Goldy to play,. hopeful they get me to around 2150 -2200 Grundy,Oliver (who I have) and Gawny have let a lot of teams down big time this week….. so will be interesting to see what a par score will be.

Holty01 · 23/03/2019 at 23:29

Only have Williams to go now. It will be a very boring day tomorrow with SuperCoach

    Tyruddanaut · 24/03/2019 at 08:13

    I only have Walters and Pierce. The PODness will help me keep entertained I hope

    COREYSC · 24/03/2019 at 08:13

    Same here Holty

Vinny · 23/03/2019 at 23:44

I know is early. But thought on par score for the round? 2100 I’m thinking at the moment which is what I am on track for

    _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 09:59

    2100 will be well above par. Lots of people will struggle to reach 2k with the amount of sub par popular premos

Dale · 24/03/2019 at 00:27

Have a league that I want to fill with people from this community
Code is 998055. Hate it when it gets auto filled so jump on 👍🏼

    Ive joined

Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 01:16

I don’t want to talk about SC classic right now it’s a touchy subject haha so for those in gators draft league I’m still chasing some premium scoring fwds but consider defs also. send through your requests in “trade centre”
on the trade table are the names listed below:
Ward
Adams
Higgins
Ross
Steven

I have already traded Ablett for wingard, thanks Derek 🙂

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 02:12

    Can’t really help. My midfield is pretty full. I’ve got to find a replacement for Rance.

Tyruddanaut · 24/03/2019 at 08:11

What’s on par this week?
Some of my players, Oliver, Grundy (c), Brayshaw, Smith, Heeney. Have really underperformed BUT they all seem a fairly high percentage ownership.

I’m on track for high 2000s 😬

    DEE · 24/03/2019 at 08:51

    Tyrudd what score do you reckon is par this week? I’m on 1853 with Williams and Parker to play! I’d be happy with high 2000s my friend, I’ll be lucky to make it past 2000 this week I reckon. Cheers!

      Tyruddanaut · 24/03/2019 at 10:47

      I think that will be a bit lower. If I had to guess, it would be mid-high 2100s

Tyruddanaut · 24/03/2019 at 08:19

On a side note 5/6 games were upsets this week! I’m glad I didn’t tip

DEE · 24/03/2019 at 08:46

Good morning to all my beloved JLT Community representatives from all across the nation, I got a question for everyone….. Schulz from Fremantle, don’t know what type of pre season the lads had and to be truly honest I don’t know anything about this man until his name showed up on the teams 2 nights ago, but if anyone on here in our community know more about this rookie. Please… I’m all ears! He didn’t even play in both JLT games but yet is on the bench for Dockers and will play his first game this afternoon, I don’t know what the b1oody hell Ross did too Bewley as I had him on my MID bench but the kid is gone and is no where to be seen. Maybe this Schulz kid can play lads, contemplating on trading him in for Burgess or Parker. Thoughts community?

    Sharkmove_King · 24/03/2019 at 09:47

    Hi Dee.

    I've tried to do a bit of research on him and this is what I've came up with.

    The Good: He averaged 18 possessions as a small forward last year which was either the most or second most of any forward in the competition. It's worth noting that's there less possessions all round in lower leagues compared to the AFL. Bewley was the most I think with 26. So, he can get the ball.

    The bad:. He didn't play JLT at all, he played for Peel instead (Freo's reserves I think). Matera got suspended in JLT2 for 1 week. Is he just taking Materas spot?

      DEE · 24/03/2019 at 14:41

      Sharkmove thanks for taking the time to response mate, I’ve decided to leave him out and watch him closely in the first 2 rounds. I just couldnt pick Schulz as I haven’t seen him play footy, so decided to leave Burgess on the bench for now…. but I definitely would have flicked him if he didn’t have DPP. Cheers knackers!

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/03/2019 at 09:17

Pretty happy with Sloane as C in my draft league, wish i had the balls to go with him in my classic league also tho

COREYSC · 24/03/2019 at 09:19

Best move of the weekend was taking Cripps’ vc score

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 09:58

    My captain has not played yet. LOL

    Rocksta_ · 24/03/2019 at 09:59

    Not Wrong Corey. Wish I had have

johnno2908 · 24/03/2019 at 09:31

Burgess or McKay on field?

    Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 10:18

    Neither

Sharkmove_King · 24/03/2019 at 09:51

To all those Grundy & Gawn owners (like me) Who are you most concerned about? For me it's Gawn. I think these new rules mean less repeat stoppages. Hitouts was Gawns bread and butter. I think the ruckmen that do more around the ground will be less effected. That's why I still believe Grundy will be number 1.

    Krups · 24/03/2019 at 10:23

    Gee its a bloody tough call. To invest that much money for such a poor return is dissapointing. But its a marathon not a sprint. Hold people.

    Mr_Pink_ · 24/03/2019 at 11:10

    Agree Shark… but not just with the around the ground stuff – every single Port Adelaide player bumped Gawn whenever he ran past. I think Preuss will be named to give Gawn a chop out and be under strict instructions to throw his ample frame around. So it's also a very real possibility that Gawn will play less time in the ruck… a big concern

    Mr_Pink_ · 24/03/2019 at 11:11

    Also Grundy got shafted with a few frees Friday night… apparently CD was not watching either when he was putting it down the throat of his mid's

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 12:07

    Wouldn’t give up to early on the rucks Shark. I remember a few years ago when we had some rule changes we were talking about the same thing. All the rucks had a terrible first round and people started panic trading as they thought it was the death of ruckmen. Following round rucks started pumping out huge scores. And if memory serves correctly, it was the year that Gawn and Goldy went huge against each other.

    Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 12:43

    And after this game im thinking Pruss comes back in.

TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 10:01

Who is the better captain today……Fyfe or Coniglio? I have the C on Coniglio……….Decisions, decisions!

    Goat___23 · 24/03/2019 at 10:11

    As a bombers supporter it can go one of 2 ways. Either Coniglio will score 130 in a tight contest because essendon NEVER tag opposition midfielders. Or he only scores in the 90’s because we go on one of those ‘rampages’ like against West coast or Port last year, which I feel is a very high possibility in round 1. Due to the uncertainty, i’d go with Fyfe against north without Jacobs

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/03/2019 at 10:41

    Dont reckon you could go wrong with either hawk but how is fyfes elbow.

      TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 11:36

      Thanks Trigga. I dont have Fyfe. Just Coniglio. I could punt Cogs for Fyfe and make him captain. I cant do it, sticking with Cogs. He is a beast. No Kelly, No Ward, GWS at home, Essendon dont tag much and therefore the stage is set for Coniglio. From what I have been hearing from the friendly sandgroper locals is that Fyfe's elbow is still a bit raw. expect to see him with an elbow brace again today. Still risky starting with him. Cheers mate.

Tyruddanaut · 24/03/2019 at 10:48

Just realised I could've loopholed Grundy and Macrae, but I thought Clarke was named 🙁

HarryH76 · 24/03/2019 at 10:52

Like most coaches I had about 70 different players in my team at various stages and now cursing a couple I missed out on, although generally not too unhappy. Don't have Bont or Rocky but not sure I'm going to panic trade them in just yet. But a couple of points for mine:

1) Are we believing Sheed is the real deal now? At his price it's hard to ignore.
2) I really liked Salem but went with Mills. How much mid time did he play last night? From my read, not much. Just wondering if it's still too early for Mills and maybe this is the year for Salem

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 11:42

    hi Harry. Yep, Sheed has raised his game to the next level. No doubt now. That winning goal he scored in the grand final has made him really believe. Salem, Newman, and Sheed are all on my hit list as well as Worpel. Dont have those 4. I do have Rocky, and the Crouch brothers. Obviously very happy with those choices. Punted Gawn for Goldy at the last minute yesterday. Hope Goldy can do the business and justify backing out of Grawndy. Cheers mate!

      HarryH76 · 24/03/2019 at 13:37

      Yep my mate who's a Weagles supporter said the same re Sheed. The challenge is who goes. I can actually upgrade Walsh to him with $ in the bank but not sure the value of it. Otherwise one of Cripps, 2 x Crouch, Oliver or Brayshaw goes, and not sure I want to get rid of any of them

    Imsobrad · 24/03/2019 at 12:15

    He is definitely upped his game, however i would be hesitant to think he can continue with the 40 touch games until andrew gaff comes back in round 3 which actually coincides with the price rise. Gaff is a big accumulator and just wondering if there is enough to go around.

    Same logic with rocky, im not sure how his scoring is affected with wines back in.

    Goaled Finger · 24/03/2019 at 13:08

    Very early days, so no regrets. But my initial concern is I had locked away Westhoff and Goldy as my rucks, thinking Hoff would then move to my forward line once I decided which of the big 2 was the better option.
    I got scared off at the prospect that they both kill it and I couldn’t afford to bring in both and all the Gawndy folk would be miles ahead.
    So I traded out Hoff for Gawn.

Will · 24/03/2019 at 11:06

Can somebody who watched the Adelaide game tell me if Bodie Smith took the kickouts?

    Kewbie Bear · 24/03/2019 at 11:26

    Yeah he took a fair few and hit 80 points which is what investors would have hoped to see at a minimum, particularly as he does not normally score well against the Hawks.

Derek · 24/03/2019 at 11:43

The pain of the first Sunday morning of a new AFL SuperCoach season.

Oliver as C makes the coffee taste bitter this morning.

Have my PODs Merrett and Mundy playing today to lift my spirits and get me over 2k

Thanks fellas

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 11:50

    I was shocked to see how bad Oliver was yesterday. That is his lowest SC score for a very long time.I started with Brayshaw who was poor on the DE front, but can live with his 90 due to his lower price point. Running with Coniglio as captain today.

      Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 17:35

      Great call this week T.H, Gongigliogs paying off nicely for ya!

        TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 18:02

        Thanks Russsty. Very pleased. I did not have Cogs last year and it cost be badly. I had no choice but to give him a go and start him. For him to go north of 150 is brilliant. Hope Goldy can finish the job now against the dockers.

          Derek · 24/03/2019 at 18:12

          I wouldn’t mind Cogs instead of Merrett about now

          Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 18:44

          See you're sitting on 2133 Hawk and with Goldy to come you're looking st a decebt round 1 score. Unfortunately I changed Goldy to Gawn on Thursday night and wished I hadn't cos could have used the cash on another premo.

      Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 18:22

      Calvin from DT Talk had Cogs as captain. Wish I'd taken his sdvice although okay with loopholing Cripp's 126.

    Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 12:01

    Feel ya Derek, but i went ber instead of coffee, that stuffs not good for ya, im having a shocker, will struggle to make 2000 , There will be a corrective!!!

      Derek · 24/03/2019 at 12:10

      But the Hawks beat the Crows…….. again

        Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 12:21

        And lets face it, Thats all that really matters hey? LOL

      Derek · 24/03/2019 at 12:28

      Not a shocker yet, will see how my PODs do today, plus have Scott on field with Constable on bench.

      I was more than happy with Dusty’s score considering the effort he put in, crouch, Cripps, Hurn, Kelly all did good. Grundy and Gawn will be ok and Danger and Heeney everyone has.

      Oliver my only bad score, with C just made it worse than it is.

      Rookies have been good, Gibbons only dud, but only a bench player.

      Rocky, Bont, Sheed, Nank, Sloane, Hoff, Boak are all nominees for the ‘Stanton’ award. Most people will say they had them in their team at some stage during the pre season.

      First week is ONLY injury trades.

      Second week is Rookie correction trades.

      Week 3 is hold.

      Note: there is no sideways premium trading week.

      Thanks fellas

        Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 12:41

        Hahahahaha nice

        Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 12:44

        The Stanton award, lol.
        Can honestly say I only looked seriously at 2 of that list. Sheed for a bit but thought he would only be relevant in dream team so ditched that idea very quickly. Things change very quickly in a week though

          Derek · 24/03/2019 at 12:57

          Stanton would start every year on fire.

        TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 12:51

        I have Rocky. At $405K a no brainer. LOL

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 13:36

          Have Rocky too but ditched Sloane for him lmfao! Well….. moving on 😂

          Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 13:48

          I spruced Rocky a bit and u know what l took him out Friday.

        Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 18:25

        Newman and Worpel are so tempting though but will wait another week to see who else pops up or whether they continue to score well

    kinglear009 · 24/03/2019 at 12:52

    Derek, I had it on Oliver too – had Crouch but two minutes before the bounce thought Oliver was the most dependable midfielder in my team. Sigh – at least Crouch did well but it stings

Gone · 24/03/2019 at 13:19

How soft is Gawn? What an absolute wimp

    Rick Grimes · 24/03/2019 at 14:24

    Yea he might be first kicked from my team. Just run the Hoff at r2.

Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 13:34

So the person in almost everyone’s side 2 months ago and after JLT it changed very quickly is on 30 half way through the 1st quarter. I’m guessing you know who I’m talking about?

    Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 13:43

    Not sure Holty but Parker is 36 at the first change,

      Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 13:44

      Glad i kept him

Tommo09 · 24/03/2019 at 13:44

Balta over Parker on field is really hurting right now

JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 13:50

I hadn't even thought about my draft team until last night, had a look and I had the C on Oliver and the VC on Bont. oh dear.

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 14:37

    Draft is harder for C. Difficult to loophole. You need a perma C

      JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 14:41

      Think I'll just put it on Bont and leave it there.

    hedski · 24/03/2019 at 14:49

    I had my captains as Grundy and Gawn in my two leagues.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/03/2019 at 17:34

    Happy to trade gibbs or mcbags for worpel

    Looks like u could do with an extra mid or two and I could do with one more fwd or def.

Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 13:57

Have Mundy but starting to think Walters 🤔

    Ja191 · 24/03/2019 at 14:29

    if he's playing his mid role its 50/50 cause of injury for me, if he's not then no chance

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 14:36

    Mundy is 100% midfield.

    Walters mainly forward.

    Ross said his main midfield will be Fyfe, Mundy and Brayshaw.

Rick Grimes · 24/03/2019 at 14:04

Balta to Parker looks likely.

    dontblushbaby · 24/03/2019 at 14:55

    I have both , it will be interesting if Balta takes Rances spot

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/03/2019 at 14:23

Billings could easily become Worpel after round 2 if scoring stays the same

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 14:33

    Thinking the same thing, it was always between those two for F4, I just picked the wrong one.

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 14:34

    Do you have Drew in midfield? You can go Billings to Sheed.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/03/2019 at 15:51

      Yeah good call Derek, i'm a little reticent to pick Sheed until i know how Gaff being back in the side effects his output but i will consider him

BlueBaggerJosh · 24/03/2019 at 14:26

Honestly guys, might go Fyfe down to brayshaw or hall so i can afford Collins to Newman next week, absolute shambles i dont know what to do

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 14:32

    I was recommending Rozee instead of Collins. Same price but has DPP. I didn’t see Port’s game but heard he did well and has a lot of improvement

      Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 14:35

      Wish I'd listened to you Derek, what a steaming pile of crud Collins is delivering. He's making my bad first week much worse.

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 14:38

    That's at least one thing I did right, I didn't want to pay more than 150k on a defence rookie and a GC one at that.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 14:54

      yeah I never pay high on rookie unless he is a midfielder and deserves the hype

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 15:13

    Collins is an absolute dud. Done SFA. I dodged him fortunately, but I am looking to get Newman soon as well. I would consider raising some cash by downgrading Fyfe. He is still slightly risky with that elbow. If you are quick you still consider Zerrett or even a Tim Taranto. Jared Polec could be a sneaky POD too. Then next week turf Collins out and bring in Newman. Good luck mate.

      Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 18:10

      Better wait to see what Fyfe scores – thinking it will be okay.

        BlueBaggerJosh · 24/03/2019 at 19:39

        Lucky i didn't punt Fyfe, put him Captain too!

        Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 19:44

        89 at half time. Think you might have to reconsider Hawk. That Roman guy that plys for NM has done an acl i.e Biggus Dickus Vickers Willus.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 14:49

Just seeing a trend so far in the ruck department.

Westhoff 149 (5 goals)
Nankervis 127 (3 goals)
McEvoy 102 (2 goals)
Sinclair 99
Gawn 87
Jacobs 86
Martin 82
Grundy 81 (probably would have scored 95 if it were not for 5 FA)

Seems like rucks ceiling is limited to around 85-100 pts unless they snag a couple goals

    Hawk131415 · 24/03/2019 at 14:58

    Yep, Grawndy get 1 more week.
    !!

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 15:03

      yeah agree. One more week, may have to off load just one of these uber expensive pricks for Nank or Goldy. Think this 666 rule has closed the gap on Grundy Gawn vs the next 3-4 ruckman significantly

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 16:45

    Grundy missed an easy set shot from 20m out

      Hayden · 24/03/2019 at 19:29

      And another snap from 10m out too.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 19:47

        Yeah but these ruck scores…. I can't see a Ruckman scoring 140+ too often this year if this is the actual trend

    The Unsullied · 25/03/2019 at 09:43

    Gawns last 4 games including finals 2018 average of 100

Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 14:57

What’s the story with Collins and Burgess? Collins on 8 half way through the 3rd Burgess on 16. Injured or just can’t get there hands on it?

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 15:11

    They play for GC.

      Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 15:40

      Which for Collins should mean plenty of opportunity to score playing defence

        Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 15:55

        5 and 4 possessions Mav, didn't even make his prediction, thought he'd get plenty of it too in def at the GC…not so though

        dontblushbaby · 24/03/2019 at 16:00

        Collins went off with a leg injury late in Q4 but he was only trying to spoil the ball anyway ,not real good for SC

        JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 16:03

        I prefer the more mobile players, not mad about key position players.

    Connor · 24/03/2019 at 15:57

    Imagine if Burgess took that grab and converted in the last minute! Might have ended up with a passable score…
    But Burgess playing a key forward role for GCS was never going to produce many points

    hedski · 24/03/2019 at 16:04

    I'll be monitoring Wilke and Scrimshaw next week, could be a double corrective come round 3.

      Derek · 24/03/2019 at 16:42

      I was very keen on Wilkie when Robertson went down. Had I’m until a minute before the hawks game, when scrimshaw to be safe.

        hedski · 24/03/2019 at 16:53

        I didn't see enough of Wilkie in JLT and couldn't afford Scrim over Burgess.
        We have another round to watch anyway.

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/03/2019 at 15:51

Pretty happy i swapped Schultz to Parker with 5 minutes to go before lock-out

BlueBaggerJosh · 24/03/2019 at 15:59

Hold Hanley and/or Collins or just turf them next week?

    hedski · 24/03/2019 at 16:54

    Hold, we have a free hit next week

ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 17:17

What a qtr from Whitfield 13 lazy touches

Jamal Hydenzat · 24/03/2019 at 17:25

1835 from 19 with FairyFloss Gawn as Capt. Will struggle to 2050 with only Greene,Williams,Ridley to play.
Constable(85) Drew(103) and Duursma (67) on the Bench with Walsh(68), Setterfield(69) and Collins (27) on field
Total spuds Oliver, Gawn, Collins, partial spuds Danger, Libba, Darling
Cripps, MCrouch, Rocky, Neale and Sheed my only players that went 100+

Only cost myself 169 points from wrong players on the bench and choosing a captain who's softer than every aflw player

_Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 17:26

78 from billings certainly isnt what i was hoping for but with 28 touches its positive. Fix up that DE and were golden

    Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 17:56

    He got 88 didn't he?

      _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 18:22

      My bad yeah 88. I tend to get my acores off docter supercoach on facebook. Shows 78 at FT there. 88 looks a lot better to me

        Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 21:20

        He also went at 85% de

hedski · 24/03/2019 at 17:27

Gonigliog 👍

Jamal Hydenzat · 24/03/2019 at 17:39

I suppose it could be a lot worse, I could have had Spud Merrett Potatoe Hurley and some other grossly over-rated bombers players

Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 17:55

Merrett looks horrible

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 18:07

    5 handballs in the second half. Oh dear. Essendon looks horrible

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:08

    I made a big change yesterday
    Had Zerrett and Sloane
    But switched up to have Fyfe and Rocky instead. "Time will tell" as they say

Henry.Riveria · 24/03/2019 at 17:58

Sam Taylor out of no where for 110!!! what is the mans job security??
Will go straight down from collins to Taylor after the end of round 2 if he keeps his spot.

    TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 18:03

    Taylor is 268k mate. You wouldnt be downgrading to him from Collins

    Nice_Person · 24/03/2019 at 18:11

    LeBron is the GOAT

ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:03

1918 with Fyfe and Scott to play.
How is everyone?
Any scores finalised after the GWS Bombers game?

    GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 18:08

    1970 with Goldstein and Mundy to play

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:11

      You are onto a cracking score well done mate

        GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 18:14

        Didn't loop Cripps and went Danger as captain as well…. but can't complain much

    Vinny · 24/03/2019 at 18:11

    Im sitting on 2006 with just scott to play. Hopefully I am par.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:19

      think that's a solid score coming Vinny

    Beezneez · 24/03/2019 at 18:19

    2125

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 18:25

    2070 all up.

    Mystic_Mac · 24/03/2019 at 18:53

    1995 with Fyfe and Goldy to go

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 19:04

      huge!

Vinny · 24/03/2019 at 18:09

FUN FACT: Coniglio in italian means Rabbit. He gets the balls in and under the packs like a rabbit. He gun.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:11

    His thrust per second is high
    Too bad Zerrett was the female 😂

      DEE · 24/03/2019 at 18:15

      Mr. Coniglio, he come my gym…. He bloody lock, wellkkkum!

DEE · 24/03/2019 at 18:11

Question Community…. in the last few minutes before the season opener, I decided to switch N. Newman for K. Simpson which I am now slightly regretting as I've had him locked away in my back 6 all pre season. Now with Simpson as my D1 is it a bad move to have Newman along side him as a possible D2 or D3, 2 Carlton players down back? OR…. The community won't like this and good old Jock would probably hate me for even thinking about it, but what about down grading Mr. Long Sleeves for Newman and have $176K extra in the kitty which will be handy later on when I start my upgrades. Please help me out lads, I have a strong feeling Newman mite average more than Simpson this year and both should finish top 6-8 in DEF this year. What's everyone's thoughts? Any advice or suggestion would be very much appreciated, I love you all. Cheers!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:16

    At least wait after rd2 but the golden rule is to not waste trades on premium players unless they have a 3 week or more injury

      DEE · 24/03/2019 at 19:00

      Thanks for the reply Calint, would you have Simpson and Newman in your team?

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 19:38

        Simpson tbh
        I have had him 4/5 last seasons but not this year. He will still be a top 10 defender easy if he plays every game. Don't worry mate

    Sharkmove_King · 24/03/2019 at 21:34

    Some people care about having 2 from the same team on the same line but I don't, as long as there's not too many from the same bye. Then again, alot of people don't care about the byes. Having 2 would be better than ditching Simpson imo.

    I have Whitfield & Williams down back if it makes you feel better.

Derek · 24/03/2019 at 18:13

I just know there is some one out there having an incredible round 1.

A lot of the fringe players doing really well, someone has them all

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:15

    can guarantee that someone has 2300+ Rd1
    Happens almost every year

      TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 19:35

      I guess it would depend on bye structure. But i wouldnt be trading a premo down to Newman or sideways trading him after 1 week.

        TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 23:20

        Oops that was meant for the comment above Re Newman

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 20:29

    Yep. I ended up with 2216 with Grundy and Gawn as C. I did look at moving Grundy for Goldy but decided not to. People might think unlucky but in hindsight, I’ve been very lucky as if I did go that way, I would have bought in Oliver and Greene and let go of Sloane and Moore.

    The Unsullied · 25/03/2019 at 09:45

    Top teams after week 1 full of mid pricers. They will want every one of their 30 trades.

      Beezneez · 25/03/2019 at 11:13

      Noticed most of the top teams went without Grawndy giving them extra cash to splurge on other lines. They managed to pick a lot of the top players – Macrae, Lloyd, Fyfe, Rockliff, Sloane, Sheed, Newman Worpel etc. Be nice to have 6-8 trades this week.

KSinny · 24/03/2019 at 18:16

Anyone finalised there scores yet? I ended up with 2086 thanks to cogs, Whitfield and Williams. Pretty happy seeing as I had Collins and Grundy as C. Hopefully I'm around par this week, how's everyone else travelling?

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 18:27

    Around the same as you, 2070.

    johnno2908 · 24/03/2019 at 18:35

    2129, so not end of the world. So many turds.

    Thinking it’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks trying to get Rocky and Newman in, and correcting the rookies I got wrong.

    Darren · 24/03/2019 at 18:35

    2066 with Nancy Gawn as Capt and Collins on field could of been 2250 without the stupid on field and captain decisions

      DEE · 24/03/2019 at 19:01

      2022…. definitely below par!

    Finnius · 24/03/2019 at 19:30

    2072. Pretty standard week but a few premo scores in the 80s was annoying. It is only round one but still frustrating. Need to hold firm though.

    cashcows · 24/03/2019 at 19:50

    2145

    ThatsGoldJerry · 24/03/2019 at 20:03

    2215..I hope that is just above average..Oliver and Gawn my only premo let downs..Sheed was awesome as was cogs

      _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 20:19

      “Just above average”…mate 2200+ is a mammoth score. Id expect that to be top 500 easily with the amount of premo sputs and rookie turds this week

hedski · 24/03/2019 at 18:25

"The Martini Police" are now locked and loaded.
Pretty underwhelming round 1, ended on 2070-2080 after GWS scaling.
Early reactions are to watch Collins/Burgess next week and possibly correct to Wilkie/Scrimshaw before round 3.
Fairly happy with the premos I picked even if they didn't all fire, m1-m4 all cracked 125+ so that's a start, mid pricers haven't burnt me yet.

Hurn, Williams, Smith (Hore)
Collins, Clark, Durrsma (Burgess)

Macrae, Cripps (Butters)
Cogs, M.Crouch, Brayshaw (Scott)
Walsh, Constable, Atkins (Gibbons)

Gawn, Grundy (Bines)

Danger, Heeney, Dunkley (Parker)
Darling, Drew, Setterfield (Pettrucelle)

Not gonna stress on the rucks yet or chase Midpricers points.
How did you go/line up peoples?
Good to have footy back.

Steeeve · 24/03/2019 at 18:28

Absolute nightmare round one.
Balta on field
Gibbons on field
Grundy and Gawn
Oliver
Zerrett
Lots of points on the bench

Have to stay composed but particularly concerned with how Merrett looks. Important to sort out rookies first but if merrett is bad again next week I can't see him being a top 10 mid

    Sheeds · 24/03/2019 at 18:33

    Spot on Steeeeve Merrett has never been a top 10 mid and he never will be. It's only ever been hype from the HSun wally Robbo. Very misleading for supercoaches who don't do their own research and expect unbiased accurate reports from the competition organiser. I've even seen people here call him a star! Lol Starfish maybe but never a footy star

      Derek · 24/03/2019 at 18:59

      He averaged 114 from round 10 last year. That would put him top 10.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 18:36

    copped critisizm last year for not being able to break a tag. It showed today all the same… Zerrett to MCrouch, Sloane or Rockliff is valid imo if….. you think you have no other problems in your line up.

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 21:05

    Hi Steeeve. He actually looks slow and unfit. He has had a underdone preseason. I actually rate him but knowing the trouble he had scared me off selecting him. His fitness will come back but how long it takes is the big question imo

      Steeeve · 24/03/2019 at 21:20

      Agreed, looked terrible. He has one more chance this week.

        Derek · 25/03/2019 at 09:55

        it is tough playing GWS in Sydney. Hopefully they can put in a better effort at home against the saints next week.

        Merrett was 47 at half time, had 5 handballs only in second half.

Rick Grimes · 24/03/2019 at 18:43

2089 with Goldy to go. Think it's too early to go changing premos. Rookie corrections only.

    Prizza · 24/03/2019 at 18:55

    Think you be top 500 with that Rick

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 19:06

    Good stuff Rick. I had a good first round too. I am on 2115 with Goldy to go. Hopefully we get a nice start this year in the rankings.

Prizza · 24/03/2019 at 18:52

Did i detect Zac Williams injuring himself in the dying seconds?

    Ja191 · 24/03/2019 at 18:54

    saw that too lets hope his shoe came off or something lol

    KSinny · 24/03/2019 at 18:54

    Yeh I noticed him reached down for his foot, hopefully nothing comes of it

TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 19:11

Finished at 2084 which is a little disappointing. Probably around par. The only real spud for me was Oliver. I played all the right rookies besides Parker and scott, but had only 1 rookie score under 60 which was Scrimshaw. Crisp was a lttle underwhelming but he didnt look bad and got enough of the footy, but didnt use it well enough but that should improve. Gawn and Grundy not great but no need to panic just yet, Grundy should monster nank in the hitouts department next week. Hoping Williams isn't injured and if its all clear, i will most likely be holding this week!

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 21:10

    I just got to 2k. Oh well.

      Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 21:21

      We must be about 3 over par Derek, barely scraped to 2k also.

        Derek · 25/03/2019 at 09:53

        had a few bogies on the back 9, dropped a few shots with merrett and Mundy, but sunk a couple of long puts (drew and Scott) to stay in contention.

DEE · 24/03/2019 at 19:13

So who do trade out of Grundy/Gawn for Goldstein? 50 in the 1st Qtr… If Goldy ends up being top 2 in the ruck this year, plus the new 666 format could just work out to his advantage. One would think this downgrade would have to be valid, something to seriously be looked at community…. bang bang!! Weellkkum…

    TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 19:25

    Neither. Its round 1. Grundy's pre season wasn't perfect but his score was brought down by 5 FA. gawn is probably the one to be a little more worried about as it seems Port figured him out. But Ryder and Lycett are not bad rucks so you'd have to give them some credit. If he looks the same next week, then i'd be more concerned but definitely hold off this week. Goldy isn't exactly rucking against much either.

      GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 19:32

      Goldy is rucking against a beast mate.. what game are you watching

        TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 19:41

        I mean, Darcy might be tall but its no secret around the ground isnt his strong suit, which Goldy specializes in. And Goldy has matched him in the ruck as well

Andy · 24/03/2019 at 19:30

Is Gibbons > Constable a viable trade this week?

    JEL · 24/03/2019 at 20:01

    Unless you have a heap of trades to do, if your rooks are on the bench, then there is no advantage it doing a trade this week.
    Rookies are for cash generation, and there is no price change until they have played their third game.
    Wait until after their second game and see how it looks.

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 21:08

    Next week. Wait for them to be on bubble and named in team before trading

GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 19:32

Fyfe 🙁 why oh why did I not start you!

Vinny · 24/03/2019 at 19:34

Young Bailey Scott playing great footy. Knows where to be and is very calm and collected.

Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 19:36

Fyfe 90 half time

    Mystic_Mac · 24/03/2019 at 19:47

    Beast!

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 19:56

      Fyfe and Scott taking my score to the very high 2100's by the looks of it.

    TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 20:04

    Went fyfe to Macrae friday night. I had a feeling Fyfe would kill it but didn't think i could start without Macrae. I'm annoyed but i dont regret the decision. Swans was the one match i was particularly worried about in Macrae's run early and he still managed to do well. He is looking very ominous against blues and Suns but Fyfe does also have a soft early run.

BlueBaggerJosh · 24/03/2019 at 19:48

Where will 2200 + scores lie in the rankings we think?

    Ja191 · 24/03/2019 at 19:50

    top 250-500?

      DEE · 24/03/2019 at 20:05

      Top 100

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 21:07

    Top 2k

    There are always big scores

JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 19:48

A quick question, I know a few people will be doing corrective trades this week on the rookies they aren't happy with and people are fine with that, but what is the difference between that and fixing some premos that didn't work out for some that you had on your list in the first place. Still two trades that you are using up, just on different types of players. And yes I know we aren't supposed to side trade premos and it's not something I usually do, but we are fine with side trading rookies ?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 19:53

    Firstly fixing up rookies is for round 2 not round 1
    Secondly sideways rookies is important if say for example both are 123k but one is avg 80 and the other 50 after 2 games. Early Cash generation is very important.
    Thirdly a rookie who scores 30 then 100 is far more valuable than a rookie who scores 100 then 30

      JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 20:02

      I should have been more to the point, my main question is why are people fine with side trading rookies compared to premos, still two trades, just different types of players, not to worried about what round it is. I'm happy with my rookies so no need to trade just yet.

        _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 20:22

        Im not sure of anyone who is happy with sideways trading rookies or premos in round 1. Barring injuries i dont think anyone should be making any trades at all until round 2 at the earliest

          JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 20:38

          You still haven't told me why sideways trading premos is frowned upon, but rookie trading isn't. I know people would prefer not to do it, but there seems to be a different attitude towards the two types of sideways trading, when both types could be improving your team one way or another.

            Derek · 24/03/2019 at 21:04

            If your rookies are perfect, I think I got them ok, maybe scrimshaw to Wilkie, and you have no injury problems, then you can side trade a premium. I think that is the order you should look at. Not this week though, give it another week unles for injury.

        Derek · 24/03/2019 at 20:28

        It’s a fair question. I think a few guys in JR did that last year, decided to just go for it, but ran out of trades with many weeks to go.

        This time of year you just forget how valuable trades become later in the season. There will be injuries to deal with guaranteed

        The other theory is, it’s just one round, and by round 5 it is long forgotten and the guy you traded out is flying

        I’m like you, would love to trade my 2 dud PODs Merrett and Mundy, but I’ll hold and think about the future

          JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 21:05

          Hi Derek, I think you got my question the best, I know that we need the rookies for cash generation, so we need to have the best that we can get, which is why that type of trading is accepted, where as too much premo sideways trading can ruin your season, but I still feel one or two premo trades early when you know you have stuffed up doesn't hurt.

            Loop · 25/03/2019 at 04:04

            A few years back when the trade picker was online I was watching the guy who was coming first. He made premo sideways trades in the early rounds. I had a look at his results later in the year and it looked like he ran out of trades early but still managed to finish around the 500 mark which really surprised me. I agree with your thinking, I'm looking at midpricers tho, I'm concerned about my Mills selection.

              JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 12:29

              Mills is a worry if he's going to stay in defence, especially when there are so many good mid priced defenders.

              Derek · 25/03/2019 at 12:30

              i think SC_wow traded pretty hard early last year, maybe more because of injury, was ranked very well early but just ran out of trades.

              i guess if you treat it as if it is an injury, you are ok with trading now.

              3 years ago i had a year where i missed every injury and went to the last week of the year with 2 trades left. it is all about burning trades on injuries

              If we jumped from Dusty to Macrae early last year it would have been a different story

              Beezneez · 25/03/2019 at 13:23

              I think the guy who won last year ran out of trades.

          _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 21:13

          Pretty much sums it up perfectly

    TommyC99 · 24/03/2019 at 19:55

    I think if you can avoid it, you dont sideways after 1 round. Unless you had all the wrong rookies and you need to get 3-4 in by round 3 and you have no choice but to start now, you should be waiting a week. Anything can happen during that week. They could either get injured or have a mare and get unluckily dropped and your stuck with a non playing rookie and youre a trade down.

      JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 12:41

      I agree about the trading of rookies Tommy, it's better to wait the two weeks, until they are on the bubble and they are picked for their third game. Luckily I'm happy with all my rookies, which I tend to get right most years, it's usually the one or two premium players that I get wrong that sets me back at the start.

    Rockburner · 24/03/2019 at 20:48

    Only trade this week should be Rance and Doedee owners

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 20:50

    Hi john. IMO, changing the rookies is fine as there is an unknown with them. You have done your research on your premo’s and you have picked them for a reason. If we all start wanting to trade them after 1 bad game, Everyone would run out of trades.

      JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 12:47

      Agree Holty, if people went mad and kept sideways trading their premos during the season, it would end very badly.

    Derek · 24/03/2019 at 21:06

    Who would you trade out?

    Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 21:06

    Who are you thinking of dumping John, and for who? you might regret going a trade week 1, but it depends who it is.

      JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 13:11

      Hey Derek and Russty, if I was to do a rage trade it would be Clarry to Fyfe or Bont, but only because it was between those three for my last premium spot in my midfield and I now feel I might have got it wrong. I knew Fyfe and Bont could both go big, but was worried about Fyfe's elbow and not playing the JLT games, while Bont could also drop the odd low score as well as his high ones. I looked upon Oliver as a consistent scorer, someone who would range around the 90 – 130 scores and he seemed to get through the JLT games alright after his shoulder opp. So what the hell happened to him on the weekend, he usually plays well against Geelong who we play next round, so I will hold for now, but if he spuds up again, I will have to seriously think about trading him out.

        Derek · 25/03/2019 at 13:37

        I did notice Oliver’s TOG up to 3/4 time was only 73%. I didn’t see game though. Did he get injured?

        I had Neale but changed to Oliver after JLT

        Bont is going to play forward a lot this year. When they are winning he will score well. When the ball isn’t down there not good.

        Fyfe looked awesome but I still worry about his body. Not just elbow. He was struggling at end of 3rd quarter and didn’t play much of the last. Game was over.

        Cogs looked good, but no Kelly.

        To me standout for the week was Cripps. In a team beaten, he should have even gone higher.

          JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 14:16

          I don't think he was injured Derek, just underdone, which could be a concern if it takes three to four games to get it together.

            Derek · 25/03/2019 at 14:34

            I might catch reply of game during the week

    Sharkmove_King · 24/03/2019 at 21:18

    There's many ways to play this game John and I do agree with you. Having said that the most important thing as this time is cash generation.

    So the first thing people would look to do is get the right rookies. Let's assume, you have all the good ones. I can't see no reason why you wouldn't sideways trade a premium before Round 3.

    Players improve, roles change, rules change, etc. Even though we can check a players scoring history, those 2 games before price changes is some of the best Intel we will receive.

    I agree with the other guys also when they say wait till Round 3, not this week unless injury. But, if Preuss is named I'm ditching Gawn. 99% of people will tell me I'm stupid, but like I said there is many ways to play this game. Why wouldn't I wait a week? Because there might be 2 things I wanna change the following week.

      JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 21:41

      Very well put Shark.

    The Ranger · 24/03/2019 at 23:31

    When you pick a premo it's because you have a quantity of evidence to suggest that it's a good pick.
    Much more evidence than when you pick a rookie.
    So I'm happy to jump off a rookie because I have a small sample of evidence to work with and it's always a bit of a punt until they start playing at AFL level, I'm less likely to jump off a premo because the evidence suggest he's a premo and over the course of the season he will prove to be a good pick.
    I'll stick with them until I have the rookies sorted and only then look at what has to be described as a luxury trade.

      JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 00:34

      A good summary Ranger.

    Teddy021 · 25/03/2019 at 07:23

    Corrective trades on rookies should only be done after Round 2, and only when they are locked to play Round 3. This is to ensure that your get the optimal price increase for cash generation.

    Corrective or sideways trades on premos are considered a waste because you do not get any financial gain, only points. Chasing points can be very risky as no player is guaranteed to perform at max level every round. Should only do this if completely necessary ie. Injuries or suspension.

    Rick · 25/03/2019 at 12:12

    Golden Rule: Trust your premos, correct your rookies.

      Derek · 25/03/2019 at 12:38

      before anyone trades Grundy or gawn. Jump on Footywire and have a look at last years numbers for them. just to refresh your memory.

      Grundy started with a 95. followed it up with: 139, 154 & 141 the next three weeks

      Gawn had a dip in round 2 and scored 97. followed it up with 117, 112, 151, 168, 127, 148… insane numbers.

        Beezneez · 25/03/2019 at 13:34

        Good info Derek. Hope history repeats.

Daniel · 24/03/2019 at 20:06

Unfortunately I didn't start with Charlie Constable in my team, this is my current midfield;

Cripps,Neale,Selwood,Dusty,M.Crouch,Libba,Walsh,Butters,Scott,Atkins and Gibbons,

Should I use a trade at the end of this round to bring constable in (probably gibbons to constable) or hold and bring constable in before rd3 price changes?

    JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 20:11

    Wait a round, but should still be a good trade.

Jack · 24/03/2019 at 20:19

No pre season kept Fyfe's ownership from being like 40%.

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 20:45

    injury history as well. I said I wouldn’t start him based on this. He is a absolute gun though

    _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 21:17

    The pre season isnt what kept me off him, its the fact that hes never played 22 games in a season before. The choice came down to either neale or fyfe and for those who remember i was right on the neale bandwagon since pre season last year and stuck to my guns again this year with yough lachy. Il happily take the 127

Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 20:31

Fyfe not playing last qtr!!! 😡🤬

    KSinny · 24/03/2019 at 20:33

    Wow that sucks for whoever has him, especially as captain

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 20:34

    That sux Shake. I don’t have him but feel bad for all that took the punt on him.

    Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 20:34

    Back on sat on the pine for nearly 10 mins 😞

    BlueBaggerJosh · 24/03/2019 at 20:38

    Not watching, is it because of the new bs rule?

      JohnDJ59 · 24/03/2019 at 20:48

      Probably, it happened to Oliver in the second half, was stuck on the bench for too long. The AFL need to admit this no runner rule is not working, I know they use signs in soccer in the premier league, but our game is very different.

        Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 21:12

        Neil might be able to comfirm but l heard he suffered in the heat come the last qtr.

    Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 20:57

    He came back on Shake, i'll take his score thank you very much, what a champ, saved my score from being terrible, Goldy good too.
    400 from my last 2.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:09

      Yeah 150 is totally fine 🔥

      Shake_n_bake · 24/03/2019 at 21:13

      Swapped back to Mundy from Walters just before bounce

cashcows · 24/03/2019 at 21:06

Ooops.

Just realised I put in mclean last minute instead of dunkley LOL.

    Sharkmove_King · 24/03/2019 at 21:21

    At least you've kept your sense of humour lol

Doc · 24/03/2019 at 21:10

Good week for POD Harris Andrews and Semi-POD Hurn, poor from Captain Gawn and Oliver. Fyfe to Oliver was not my greatest decision.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/03/2019 at 00:23

    I was tossing up between Fyfe and Oliver for weeks and went with Oliver too zzz… Hopefully Clarry comes good!

      JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 00:40

      It was between Oliver, Fyfe and Bont for my last mid spot and I didn't decide until very late in the piece to pick Clarry.

dontblushbaby · 24/03/2019 at 21:21

Had Walsh 68 & Butters 67 on field with Scott 103 & Drew 103 on the bench, If I change them next week my luck their scores will be reversed , Ah Such Is Supercoach , anyway at least their price will fatten up

    Russty_ · 24/03/2019 at 21:28

    Feelin the same pain DBB, I had all the wrong rookies on and all the big scorers off the field.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:33

      Tom Lynch and Balta my only poop scores. If Lynch got a respectful 75 and Balta even a 30 would have taken my 2172 to 2201

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 21:34

    i Was lucky BBB. Only one I missed out on was Scott.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/03/2019 at 21:37

    Normally happens rd1
    Bit of guess work.
    Walsh was always gonna be on field ahead of Scott.
    Nice little earner there.
    I had petr… on instead of parker
    Was toss a coin landed on tails, should have been heads. 🙄

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/03/2019 at 21:25

What's par looking like this week fellas? Ended up with 2,111 which i feel is just on, if not a tiny bit above.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:29

    i think 2100 is above par. Seen lots of scores below 2050 in my leagues

    KSinny · 24/03/2019 at 21:33

    Yeh that's a good score man I only got 2086

    NoLanguage96 · 24/03/2019 at 21:35

    I'm pretty happy with a 2184. Some puss scores but overall compared to some horror stories I've heard a decent result

    The Ranger · 24/03/2019 at 23:44

    Weird round to try and say what par is AB.
    2100+ seems not too bad considering some of the under performing premos.
    Wonder when the last time was that Danger, Gawn and Grundy all failed to ton up in the same round.

TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 21:35

Alright community! How did we all fare this weekend? I got out of jail today with Coniglio as captain.

As Crouching one would say, "He good boy….he bloody save my asssssss, welcome!"

Ended up with 2217.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:36

    2172

      TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 21:46

      Nice score mate. Feels awesome to start the season with a decent score. Had plenty of seasons where I was sulking over 3 or so duds after round 1.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:49

        in these first 5 rounds 2100 plus is always a bonus when relying on 7-8 on field rookies. Well done with your 2217 TOPHAWK

    Harley · 24/03/2019 at 21:39

    2280

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/03/2019 at 21:49

      Crazy score!

      Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 21:55

      Awesome score Harley. Who you have in your team and more importantly, who didn’t you start?

    KSinny · 24/03/2019 at 21:40

    2086

    _Kyle · 24/03/2019 at 21:48

    1988. Cost myself 170 points with C grundy and drew and parker on the pine…balta murdered me

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 21:56

    Damn hawk you just pipped me. 2216

      TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 22:05

      Great minds think alike! Great start. But I get 1 more point than you! Sorry about that mate.

        Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 22:24

        lol. Yeah the C decision ultimately decided my downfall.😔

        Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 22:25

        And nice work with Cogs as well

    Northerner · 24/03/2019 at 22:03

    2215 with Gawn as captain. All my <30% owned pods did ok. Whitfield, Hurn, Fyfe, Neale, M Crouch, Sheed, Dunkley, Boak. All my >30% owned premiums were ordinary except for Cripps. Missed Parker, so he will be on watch for one more week. Have just enough to go Gibbons up to him using a Drew swing. And I missed Wilkie and Joyce but they don’t appear must haves yet and need another week.

      The Ranger · 24/03/2019 at 23:17

      2109 with Drew and Scott on the bench sucks a bit.
      Plenty of under performing premos everywhere.
      I'll be trying not to trade this week and backing them in.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/03/2019 at 00:15

    2184

    DavidC · 25/03/2019 at 07:57

    2217 for me as well. Must have the same teams.

    Derek · 25/03/2019 at 08:27

    1994

    Might be my first sub 2k start to season.

    Mundy, Merrett, Grundy, Gawn and Oliver as Captain

    Did manage to have Drew and Scott on the field

    No trades this week.

    Got all the good rookies

    No injuries.

    Shake beats me by 6 in Draft. Came down to I had Mundy +29 vs Walters. Not happy with Mundy this morning.

      Shake_n_bake · 25/03/2019 at 10:26

      did see that this morning Derek close draft game. Swapped back to Mundy from Walters last minute but still think Mundy was robbed. l got 2099 with Gawn as capt not great. Miss you in Cazaly league.

        Derek · 25/03/2019 at 10:36

        had you covered at 3/4 time. Walters was 11 ahead of Mundy, giving me a lead of 18. the ball was in fremantles forward line all of the last quarter, it was just a matter of time before Walters kicked a couple and got you home.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 25/03/2019 at 12:30

    1970 for me, not the best but happy enough with my team overall, hopefully grundy/gawn/oliver are better this week.. had grundy as captain

Yeahnah · 24/03/2019 at 21:37

Scored 2180. Balta on field over Parker was really the only mistake made. Coniglio and Fyfe standouts

RoyWetard · 24/03/2019 at 21:46

Trading after Round 1 isn't someone I want to do but I'm thinking about Libba to Drew (Drew, Constable or Scott on field because of it) and Collins to Moore to leave me with 165,2k. Doing these now would give me another round to correct mistakes before prices change. EDIT: The reason I would be trading Libba over another mid-pricer in my team is because I don't see potential in Libba being a keeper.

    TOPHAWK1 · 24/03/2019 at 21:56

    That's what trades are for. To build your side. If you need to pull trades early, then you do it. I reckon if you do not have Drew, (M Parker), Constable, and Scott and you own Collins then IMO you need to trade this week. Nothing wrong with that at all. Collins is an expensive rook who has done SFA in JLT and now round 1. Just take care of it. Good luck mate.

    Twilightingale · 24/03/2019 at 23:42

    No one picked Libba viewing him as a keeper. Or no one should have.
    If you were to pick him, it would be to make some money while scoring more than what a rookie would have. Nothing has changed in 1 round to trade Libba out.

    Although If it's the only way to generate cash to go Collins to Moore and you can't downgrade Collins, then I think it's a worthwhile trade.
    Would be advisable to wait another week though, round 1 scores affect 1 price change, round 2 scores affect 2 price changes. Rookie scores are unpredictable, Collins and Drew could easily reverse scores next week and you'll regret the trade.

    Mick · 25/03/2019 at 08:58

    Why Not trade Collins down to a Joyce or similar after this round if he’s your main issue. I have Moore, but don’t think he’s a must have by any stretch.

      RoyWetard · 25/03/2019 at 11:33

      It's an idea I'm looking at. It'll be between Ballard/Moore/Ridley/Wilkie/Joyce. The extra 100k could be very helpful.

Lekdog · 24/03/2019 at 22:04

2125 for me, could only really have made up points with Constable and Wilkie on over Butters and Duursma. Gongigliog GOAT

    COREYSC · 24/03/2019 at 23:12

    2172 ok week In the end it was a low scoring one!

    Nice_Person · 25/03/2019 at 20:30

    The COG! What a jet!

    PS beat you by 4 points

leedy · 24/03/2019 at 22:11

Fyfe is life … remember that all you doubters!

    Holty01 · 24/03/2019 at 22:31

    Let’s hope he can stay in one piece for you and the rest who have him.

      leedy · 24/03/2019 at 22:37

      ha yes … or not suspended … cheers

Teddy021 · 24/03/2019 at 22:39

Cogs and fyfe saved my ass. Ended up with a score of 2157 and an overall rank of 9027.

By comparison, last season I scored 2340 with a rank of 6142.

Maverick_ · 24/03/2019 at 22:51

Collins -> Wilkie this week. I want two correction trades Nxt week so gotta make atleast 1 now. If sheed goes huge again I won’t be able to resist!

    GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 22:54

    I'm not trading. Only one I will do next week is Joyce or Wilkie in for Burgess. And maybe Mundy if he spuds it again…. 73 is pathetic

      Derek · 25/03/2019 at 08:17

      I’m a bit worried Fremo’s Game is too fast for Mundy. He spent most of the day in the guts but was just watching Fyfe.

    DavidC · 25/03/2019 at 07:52

    Too early to be burning a trade mate. Hold fire until next week.

    Twilightingale · 25/03/2019 at 15:42

    Wouldn't trade Wilkie in this week. Brown to come in for either Wilkie or Joyce and Rowe, Marsh and Austin could be ready for selection in a couple of weeks. Not sure if they play but would put pressure on the current defenders to perform.

Bells · 24/03/2019 at 22:55

1970 – I backed Oliver to smash Port rookies despite having Cripps VC score in the bank. Ouch.
Had every high scoring rookie on the bench.
As usual none of my midpricers did anything except Rocky.
One more game to see the lay of the land before I waste a trade by downgrading Grundy to Goldy and get Lloyd into the backline.
I can't be saved from myself.

    kinglear009 · 25/03/2019 at 01:02

    I think we have similar tastes – I also got lured into Oliver as a Captain and man he burnt me! Midpricers all did fairly ordinary too but nothing catastrophic. Luckily it's Rd 1, which is barely reflected in $$$ movements and mostly in points, so lots of opportunity to catch up.

GloryDays94 · 24/03/2019 at 23:38

The amount of point hungry people trading out players this week is hilarious so far 😂😂. Round 1 guys just chill! Injuries are the only reason you should be trading this week. Rookie corrective next week.. and to the people trading Gawn I hope he goes big to shove it right up you 👍

    Tyruddanaut · 25/03/2019 at 16:36

    I agree!!!! Especially that most trades involve Oliver, after one bad game

      Maverick_ · 25/03/2019 at 19:18

      I've seen alot of people jumping on westhoff from grundy/gawn.
      he kicked 5 goals and two were crucial in the last qtr which would've inflated his score hugely….
      goood luck to him doing that every week.

      Madness!!

Iamme · 25/03/2019 at 00:15

I cant believe people put Collins in their teams…as soon as I saw him named at Full back on Thursday, he was kicked to the curb.

    DavidC · 25/03/2019 at 07:49

    Team sheets mean nothing as to where players play. He was a poor pick though, didn't show enough in JLT.

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/03/2019 at 16:25

    Never considered Collins. Does not look like he is ready to play at the Elite level just yet. There were alarm bells ringing during the JLT. At his elevated price there was just too much risk. Perhaps next year.

    Steeeve · 25/03/2019 at 22:13

    I'll give him one more week and if he stinks it up I'll move him on. Beauty of round 1 is scores barely affect price.

Northerner · 25/03/2019 at 05:39

Just looked at the BEs in my team. Look beautiful. All low except Heeney at 119 and then Grawndyfield which is irrelevant. And a projected score of 2295. Nice.

Shake_n_bake · 25/03/2019 at 10:18

good start to up the cazaly league 23rd good job guys

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 12:07

    Cmon Rust!
    We could have been #1. Lift! 🤣

      Derek · 25/03/2019 at 12:20

      your just lucky im not there dragging you down

        Shake_n_bake · 25/03/2019 at 14:21

        Maybe youll be back in 2020 Derek.

        Browncow · 25/03/2019 at 15:45

        I think it was me dragging Cazaly down in the early rounds last year until trading started. Great when every team sees it through to the end.

      Russty_ · 25/03/2019 at 17:14

      Yeah sorry fellas, all the wrong Rookies on field including Collins the spud, I shall Improve! 🙂

    neil demons delight · 25/03/2019 at 12:28

    good stuff boys Trigg did you do a deal on the two mids Check mine out NDD

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 12:54

      cant see anything mate in fins draft league

      what did you have in mind?

      probably gonna keep one of them now as zerrett just doenst look like it at the moment so will put him on the bench
      but happy to trade gibbs as well

        neil demons delight · 25/03/2019 at 16:32

        all good Trigg nothing in mind yet

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 20:17

          Still happy to trade for lloyd

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/03/2019 at 16:00

    Good stuff! Glad I could make a nice but small contribution with my 2217. Best start for the TopHawks in years. Good luck all this season! TH

Sam_01 · 25/03/2019 at 13:33

2132 for me with Parker, scott and constable on the bench could of maybe scraped it up to 2200
Jack Steele pick had me very worried at half time but came home strong with a 115 still concerned though haha ( the lack of Fyfe/conigliog/sheed in my team worries me)
What are people’s plans if sheed goes bang again? If he can keep that average up, is it worth blowing a down grade on a premo to get him? Bank 100k, enjoy the 100k price rise? Can’t justify blowing two trades to get libba up to him!

    Derek · 25/03/2019 at 13:41

    Shouldn’t really go a premium to him unless injury.

    Only a mid pricer to sheed as a corrective. If you have a Mills who doesn’t get midfield next week.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 14:13

    Give him another week but if he continues along his scoring ways gotta have a good hard look b4 price rise.

    Walshy maybe.

    TommyC99 · 25/03/2019 at 14:34

    Really hoping he has a down week because i dont have any way of bringing him in. Only got Moore as a mid pricer so i wont be able to bring him in

      Sam_01 · 26/03/2019 at 08:35

      Yeah agree tommy I have more and libba but no spare cash to id need to down grade one and trade the other to get him or drop Walsh to gibbons either way two trades burnt

Whitey · 25/03/2019 at 13:33

Resisting any changes this week but can anyone tell me if Callum Wilkie is a key defender or not?
You're on notice Collins!! Thanks

    Tyruddanaut · 25/03/2019 at 16:35

    Similar to Webster as in he can play intercept or key defense. Role might change often

William · 25/03/2019 at 13:59

Considering going Gawn/Grundy to Hoff and use the money to move Balta to Rozee who can swing with Moore and Gibbons to either Walsh or LDU.
Didn't pick Burgess and Collins so Balta & Gibbons are my only rookies who are concerning.
Not convinced that the Melb rookie mids have any job security, same with Schulz from Freo, if anyone has a different opinion?
But they're the only cheaper rookies who I could swap Balta & Gibbons for without a downgrade to free up cash

    JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 14:08

    Sparrow should keep his place for now, Viney shouldn't have played, didn't look the best at the end playing for Casey before round one and still didn't look right against Port. Having said that, I wouldn't do any of those trades just yet, Hoff isn't going to kick a bag of goals each week.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 14:25

      Disclaimer.

      This is just John's opinion.
      Please make up your own mind whether you follow this advice or not. 🤣

        JohnDJ59 · 25/03/2019 at 15:08

        Very good Trigga, we should put that at the end of all our comments.

    Tyruddanaut · 25/03/2019 at 16:34

    Give it another week before trading premos. Grundy and Gawn are likely to perform better

ZzZCalintZzZ · 25/03/2019 at 14:21

Over 7,000 coaches have traded out 1 of Grundy, Gawn or both.
Absolute madness
Gawn had 3 scores below 90 last year 82,79,76. And in 2016 his first 2 rounds were 95,85 then his next 3 rounds were 172,105,160
Grundy just last year started with a 95 his next 3 rounds were 139,154,141

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 25/03/2019 at 14:32

    Even if they both don't average 120 this year which is highly likely I would think they are both still top 3 rucks this year and not worth burning the trade(s)

    TommyC99 · 25/03/2019 at 14:32

    I am very excited for this week for that very reason. On the SC facebook groups, ive seen so many people scoffing at those who have Gone Grawndy so im looking forward to their reactions this week as well as the people who have rage traded them out after 1 week.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 25/03/2019 at 14:35

      Be a huge mistake to off load even 1 of them

        Mystic_Mac · 25/03/2019 at 14:39

        Agreed

          One Touch Wonder · 25/03/2019 at 14:44

          I didn’t start with either of them for my SHARK MOVE. So we are all happy, for now.

    GloryDays94 · 25/03/2019 at 15:21

    Idiots! All trading in Westhoff who won't kick a bag every week..

      TommyC99 · 25/03/2019 at 16:52

      Im intending on getting him at some stage in the fwd line and to also be ruck cover, but you'd be quite stupid to trade Gawn/Grundy to him

Taranto · 25/03/2019 at 14:46

Can someone explain how Taranto only got 112? Had 30 disposals with 2 goals along with 10 tackles

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 25/03/2019 at 14:50

    Did most of that half way through the 3rd qtr onwards. Game was already wide blown open before then. Fast starters almost always get the better live scaling

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 25/03/2019 at 14:55

      He had 1 kick 2 handballs after the 12 mins in the first qtr.
      His 2 goals and 6 of his 10 tackles came after 19 mins in the third qtr till end of match.
      Hope I helped

TelescopicCox · 25/03/2019 at 15:23

2157 for me, which leaves me around the 8k mark. 3 votes to Cogs who was on fire. Honorable mention to Willem Drew.

Worst on my POD selections – Crisp & Darling.

On the chopping block after round 2:
Balta

Rick Grimes · 25/03/2019 at 15:26

Balta to Parker only possible trade I see myself making. Wanna have a good look at Gawn. A sample of one is not enough to make any outrageous plays.

    JEL · 25/03/2019 at 19:31

    Yep, Balta to Parker the only trade on my radar.
    Will see what next week brings before making the chop.

      Maverick_ · 25/03/2019 at 19:48

      i've had 24 hours to cool on a few decisions i was contemplating after a BAD round 1.
      Now i may hold off on doing anything rash this week but on my radar is collins -> wilkie.
      I'm not having a 190k def dishing that up weekly and losing $$$ but will just bench him for now and make that call after Rd2.

        Northerner · 25/03/2019 at 20:01

        Maverick. There’s Wilkie and Joyce. Joyce actually had 18 possies for 67 while Wilkie scored 70 from 11. Neither had good PPM in the JLT. Also a new def rookie could be named this week who racks it up and you can wait a further week to get them on the bubble, you just never know what an extra week’s data provides.

Twilightingale · 25/03/2019 at 15:39

Anyone worried that May replaces Hore and Wines replaces Drew?

    Browncow · 25/03/2019 at 16:05

    After worrying about forward rooks all pre season suddenly the backs are looking more fragile. Drew looked pretty good at the weekend but Hore could a concern.

    Sharkmove_King · 25/03/2019 at 16:09

    May, Oscar & Frost would be a very tall backlkne, most likely one of them go (probably Frost) before Hore.

    Drew would be extremely stiff if he got dropped.

    I'm not worried about those 2

    Tyruddanaut · 25/03/2019 at 16:33

    After Drew’s game…. no

COREYSC · 25/03/2019 at 16:18

2172 this week without having any huge scores from Cogs, Fyfe, Sheed or Rocky all round average week with some promising rookie scores my midpricers weren’t fails but not huge successes with B.Crouch, Williams and B.Smith in the 80-90 range. I took Cripps’ 126 vc score which turned out to be a good move!

FearTheBeard · 25/03/2019 at 16:27

Sheed & Rocky in this week lads? LOL.

    Tyruddanaut · 25/03/2019 at 16:32

    Nooooooo!!!!!
    Wait one more week. Don’t burn unnecessary trades

      FearTheBeard · 25/03/2019 at 16:51

      So tempted.

      Had them both in my original team before deadline and then ……. out lol.

        Rick Grimes · 25/03/2019 at 17:32

        Who you dumping for them? So far we have a sample size of one round to go on. If you start chopping and changing on that basis, you'll be out of trades by the end of the byes. Last week is gone and you can't get those points back.

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/03/2019 at 20:22

    Already got Rocky. Sheed will be given another audition this week. If he goes well again, I will snaffle him going into round 3. Welcome!

      FearTheBeard · 25/03/2019 at 20:27

      I had Libba for one I was looking at switching out. I know he did ok. I know he is a cash cow. Just I see these 2 making a lot more money AND potential to be keepers…. Can't ignore Sheed any more surely. I am spewing I talked myself out of him :||||

BlueBaggerJosh · 25/03/2019 at 17:06

So tempted to trade Hanley out for B. Smith but odds are if i do, Hanley will pull a 120 out his Irish arse

Mystic_Mac · 25/03/2019 at 17:58

You picked your premos for a reason.. Give them a chance. Trading after 1 game is crazy! Well done to those who picked Dom Priddis.. Going to see a lot of the ball this year.

    Holty01 · 25/03/2019 at 18:46

    Yep agreed.

    Steeeve · 25/03/2019 at 22:11

    What about zach merrett though? Looks way off the pace.
    Last year Zorko started really badly but at least he was getting tagged. Merrett isn't worth tagging right now. Or keeping in my side…

      Derek · 25/03/2019 at 22:45

      Merrett was 46sc st half time.

      Second half he, and Essendon gave up

Hawk131415 · 25/03/2019 at 19:17

So Gawns got a knee

    Maverick_ · 25/03/2019 at 19:21

    2 of them hopefully hawk

    hedski · 25/03/2019 at 19:24

    Only one Hawk?

    Hawk131415 · 25/03/2019 at 19:26

    Build it and they will come, lol

    Hawk131415 · 25/03/2019 at 19:28

    Whats this garbage about a skin irritation last week and thats why it was bandaged above the knee??

      hedski · 25/03/2019 at 19:44

      Just heard he had a boil on his leg

        Hawk131415 · 25/03/2019 at 19:52

        Oh a boil? Cheerss Hed

          hedski · 25/03/2019 at 20:07

          Yeah they said it on talking footy on 7mate.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/03/2019 at 20:14

        Well he was certainly off the boil

          Hawk131415 · 25/03/2019 at 20:21

          LOL

            Hazey · 25/03/2019 at 21:46

            Geez… He might get squeezed out this week?

              Russty_ · 25/03/2019 at 22:05

              Maybe Port were targeting his Boil and poking it at every opportunity…:)
