SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 3

Published by Kev on

Before we get into the Panic Room for this week an update on the very important goal that I set for all you wonderful people in last weeks Panic Room. I asked that we banish the #CoxCurse forever by telling Patch to shut up and… it worked! Grundy in particular was awesome after quarter time, piling on 137SC. We should all take this as a lesson to blame Patch for everything and tell him to shut up more often.

Champion Data had a Sunday they’d rather forget. Lachie Neale broke the system and the entire operation came crashing down. The only good thing to come of navigating footy with no stats was Twitter absolutely roasting them for it. 

For mine, this is the most important week in SuperCoach. Last week was hold your trades, this week it’s go wild! (within reason). First order of business is to get the right rookies in your team, which we’ll get to a bit later. Second is taking a long, hard look at the premo’s you’ve selected. Two weeks ago you backed them in for long haul, if your reason for trading is “he doesn’t look right”, reassess it. Josh Dunkley has caught the ire of many this week, but he had 17 CBA’s against the Hawks and this week he has the Suns. Sometimes you just don’t get the right bounce of the ball. 

On the other hand, Dusty hasn’t laid a tackle in two weeks. In fairness to Dustin, he’s never had huge tackle numbers (averaged 3.5 in the year he averaged 120SC). What is concerning is his clearance numbers, only three centre clearances so far this year and will likely be spending a bit more time forward now that Riewoldt is out for a month. If you picked him with the view that he’s a strong clearance player, this clearly isn’t happening. 

If the Jock Reynolds team were promo’s, then they’d be the ultra consistent type you could rely on every week. Barron’s rookie article is equal parts amazing and informative. Statty Matty, our “work experience kid, except 40” is producing a glorious looking cheat sheet. Damo has captain options for the week covered, and if your week just hasn’t had enough of Lek shouting then this weeks podcast is for you. 

The News

You know the drill by now, Thursday’s are awful and I’ll update later etc etc. Tonight we’ve got Adelaide taking on the Cats at Adelaide Oval. If the crowd doesn’t encourage Seed to have a ping when he gets it 80m out Crows fans officially suck. 

There are two forced changes tonight. Adelaide’s short turnaround has meant Sam Jacobs’ dodgy knee hasn’t come up in time, Reilly O’Brien comes in his first competitive hitout since 2016. At the Cats, Jack Henry has a sore hammy and is replaced by veteran Lachie Henderson.

**UPDATE**

Plenty of changes at the selection table this week, but luckily there’s not much that will hurt you from a SuperCoach standpoint. Zac Clarke will make his club debut at the Bombers, but as he’ll be timesharing with Bellyache I wouldn’t get too excited. Mitch Brown and Kyle Langford have been dropped. Tom Sparrow, we hardly knew ‘ye. Corey Wagner (MID – 123.9k) is back in after playing round 1. Steven May is out injured.

Carlton have lost Charlie Curnow to injury and dropped Fas and Garlett for their game against the Swans. They’ve made three changes also, bringing in former Cat Jackson Thurlow for his club debut. Josh Kelly is right to go at the Giants. Shane Mumford is also amongst the ins after his retirement/slap on the wrist (aka drug “ban”). Noah Balta is back for the Tigers and there’s also a debut for Sydney Stack (MID – 102.4k). Brisbane will head in unchanged for their game against Port, who are welcoming back Ollie Wines. Collingwood are adding Taylor Adams to an already stacked midfield, Travis Varcoe is the one to make way. There’s a debut at the Eagles for Josh Rotham (DEF – 123.9k), Andrew Gaff also returns after his 8-week suspension.      

On Sunday, The Dogs have added popular R3 Jordan Sweet (RUC – 102.4k) to their squad. The Hawks have lost Liam Shiels and Shaun Burgoyne to injury. Dylan Moore (FWD – 123.9k) has again been named for the Hawks. Chad Wingard will make his club debut. Bailey Scott has encouragingly kept his spot despite North adding Paul Ahern and Jed Anderson to their squad. Marley Williams is the only confirmed out so far. Jack Steven is being managed at the Saints, Darragh Joyce has a few owners and is back in the squad. 

The House of Evil

Rookies, premo’s, free frogurt, and Potassium Benzoate. All with your choice of topping! What more could you want other than actually useful information like player breakevens?

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Rory Sloane has had 17 tackles and 17 clearances to start the year. At 524k this just screams value. What gave him the edge to get into Lock of the Week this week is actually what his teammates are doing. George Hewett is among the top 3 taggers in the game and Horse sent him to sit on Laird and then later on Brad Crouch. If Rory can continue to escape the attention of opposition taggers we all know what he can do. Of course this depends on both Crouch brothers (yes there are two of them, Patch) staying fit and on the park, but until then you won’t see Sloane this cheap again in 2019. 

Hey Now, You’re A Draftstar

DFS can be a cruel mistress at times. You’d be happy with the score of 734 on a single game slate. What I didn’t account for though was the top 17 players on the ground being all Magpies, ten of which scored 100 or more.   

Tonights game between the Crows and the Cats is a tough one on paper. There are 10 options above 13k (and Menegola at $12,980) so you’ll need to take a punt or two somewhere to fit in the guns.

RUCK

It’s Stanley (11.7k) v O’Brien (9.5k) tonight in our only options. Stanley’s price is not a lineup breaker tonight, but as I said in the intro you need to save some coin to fit in the guns. O’Brien played two games without Sauce in 2016 for returns of 84DS and 64DS. Not awful, but not great either. Listed as an inch taller and three kilos heavier than Stanley, he should be able to hold his own.

DEF

Geelong are yet to concede a 100+ score to a defender this year. I’m hoping coaches flock to Adelaide’s defensive trio tonight so I can nab Tom Stewart (11.4k) under owned. Adelaide gave up 123 to Jake Lloyd last week and 106 to James Sicily in round 1 and as the clear number 1 avenue out of defence Stewart could be inline for a big one. Jordan Clark (7.2k) price remains steady after returns of 60 and 70 in his first two games. Has an awesome kick to handball ratio of 3.6:1 and laid 5 tackles last week against the Dees.

FWD

Both teams have been stingy in giving up points to opposition forwards so far this year so either look to find value or target MID/FWD DPP’s. Patrick Dangerfield (MID / 16.5k) is the obvious jewel here. He averages 127 in his last 5 against the Crows and 123 in his past 5 at Adelaide Oval. If you want to deploy him in your mids, Luke Dahlhaus (13.2k) and Tim Kelly (14.1k) have made strong starts to the year. Looking down the list, Reilly Knight (9.4k) was used as a tagger against Selwood last time against Geelong. He put up 77DS himself in that game and I don’t mind him here if he’s following around Selwood tonight.       

MIDS

Clayton Oliver (130DS), Angus Brayshaw (117DS), and Jack Viney (115DS) all enjoyed huge games last week against Geelong. All Adelaide’s midfield premiums are in play here so stuff in as many as you can. Charlie Constable’s (10.5k) price has shot up on the back of 31 possessions last week. I’m not real comfortable paying that amount for a 3rd gamer but he’s hot right now. I’m predicting a high pressure game of footy tonight and Tom Atkins (6.5k) has laid 13 tackles in two weeks. He offers a safe floor and if he can get a few more touches he’ll smash value at his price.

Need some suggestions on my trades this week fellas. 
Do I 1. Trade Dusty to Worpel via Setterfield allowing me to have butters on field over Setterfield. 
2. Trade Dusty straight to Sloane/Rockliff (don't have enough to go up to neale or Fyfe. 
3. Hold

SC_Kev7

Have you been burnt by Rocky before? It's not fun. He'll still be under 500k for a week or two and I really want to see how he goes with Wines back in. Trade Dusty to a keeper.

KSinny

Yeh very tru would hate to be burnt again, would u consider Sloane a keeper? Ik he's capable but can obviously be tagged out of the game. If not him who else? Only got 575k

ZzZCalintZzZ

Skinny i posted my thoughts regarding this in the round 2 podcast page. Back your gut though always 👍🏻

KSinny

Cheers mate I'll have a look

Tyler

Option 1

Greene- Moore
Hore- rooze

Option 2

Yeo- Brayshaw
Greene- b.crouch

KSinny

2

Rivo

Yep option 2

Derek

Just Green to Moore

Rivo

Nice Kev!

Help please… Dusty dilemma, all key rooks sorted. I’m a Tigers man and this is killing me….

1. Dusty (M4) to Rocky;
2. Dusty to Sloane (not getting the tag as per Kev’s wisdoms above);
3. Dusty & Collins to Neale & Scrimshaw?
4. Hold – the champ will come good!

SC_Kev7

Tigers man too Rivo and you’ve gotta go with head over heart in this game. Watched Sloane last week. At least he looks like he wants to be out there, can’t say the same for Dusty right now…

If Collins is named hold him

Rivo

Thanks Kev. Geez, I hope Dusty proves us all wrong!

Dylan

Trade Ridley and Savage to Hore and Lloyd

Or

Ridley and Savage to Wilkie and Whitfield

Steeeve

If Hore isn't named should we move him on? Already have all the must have rookies. Don't have Wilkie or Burgess

Dice_real

Hold

Shake_n_bake

May out to at least rd 5 or 6 good maybe for Hore?

Russty_

I'm sure he could find a more respectable job than that in his 6 weeks off Shake.

Hawk131415

Hahahahahahaha clever Rus,,

Jack

I need some advice on Yeo, do people think with his poor start mainly from clangers and free kicks against he can average 105+

ZzZCalintZzZ

It's in his name to come back strong

Jess

Thats true but cant afford to have a yoyo in the mids

Northerner

OK community. Here’s my logic. Pick it to pieces.

I am a believer in having Ruck cover. That 80pts points when you need cover for Grawndy at some stage will make a difference, or the flex to not have to trade them out and back in. I did not have confidence in any ruck forwards from the list that was there pre season, however had Lycett on my watch list, uncertain around his split with Ryder. I think we have seen he will be no.1 ruck and Ryder will be ruck/fwd.

I see Lycett as the only viable F6 ruck cover for the season. I actually think I will need to get him in at some point. With that 167 he scored in his price for the next 2 weeks he will be priced overs in 2 weeks’ time. Now this being free hit week I can use Heeney downgrade to snare him now and whilst it does cost a trade, is a trade for a F6/7 keeper.

That’s where I’m leaning at present. No other trades so far for the season, hence I think it’s worthy and I can have Heeney as an early season upgrade at a potentially lower price from the first cow cull.

Derek

You might have read my thought on Lycett. I was ‘this close’ to getting him pre round 1, but wasn’t convinced he had the #1 ruck job. So found a bit extra cash and got Kelly.

He looks to be the #1 ruck for now.

I don’t think he will be top 6 forward, but is the security of the Ruck swing worth a few points difference? Time will only answer that.

I was ready to trade Lycett in this week, but 2 things stopped me. 1) he played Carlton last week, 2) Westhoff had a shocker.

The Hoff is potentially a top 6 forward, he he has another low score this week his BE will be massive in 2 weeks time and we could see him under $500k.

I’d prefer the Hoff over Lycett

DavidC

Go for it if you already have the rookie ruc/fwd swing at R3.

Sharkmove_King

I tend to agree with Derek , although I haven't liked Westhoffs role too much so far….a little to close to goal for me. I guess once Dixon comes back he might play more that nice sCoring wing role.

Regardless, I'd rather wait to see who the better option is.

DDJ

Assuming Balta and Hore are not named, which of the following options would you go for:

1 – Balta -> Schultz & Hore -> LDU = $700 lefotver
2 – Balta -> Miers & Hore -> Gibbons = $89.2k
3 – Keep two non playing rookies and save trades = 74.3k

ZzZCalintZzZ

im keeping Balta and Hore as loops. Can't trade out all your rookies anyway. Long as you have the best 5-6 cash generating rookies and at most 2 non playing rookies you are in good shape. A few more rookies will show themselves over the next few months and can paint the fence when the new ones are on the bubble.

Northerner

I think both Balta an Hore are likely to be named. You may need to plan for that scenario.

ZzZCalintZzZ

it was never a plan of mine to have Balta and Hore as loops. What I'm saying is that if they don't get consistant games I'm not trading them out just for another rookie on the bubble now. I will wait for new ones to come

Bradr

Dusty and Heney out
Rocky and Kelly in?
Or option 2
Neale and worp?
Or option 3
Neale and Boak?

Northerner

Neale and Boak for mine. I just can’t see Rocky going 22 games.

Simo

I have used 1 trade on Mills to Newman. I have 2 options for my 2nd.
Straight swap, Balta to MIers. or Hore to Miers via the following
I trade out Hore, move Duursma from M to D, more Drew from F to M and then bring in Miers?
cheers

Redd

Id go Balta to Parker. Parker BE-108 RANK 23 Miers BE-48 RANK 92

Simo

Cheers Reddman, I already have Parker.

Redd

Miers it is!

TheBenoFactors

Scott, Gibbons or Atkins on field @ M8 this week?

Redd

Tough one ive got constable @m8 with Scott Gibbons and Atkins on the bench. Id take a chance on Scott against the Hawks.

TheBenoFactors

I have Constable @ M7 and have been running the last 2 weeks with Atkins as M8. Was looking at switching out Atkins this week with either Gibbons or Scott. Was tempted to do the switch with Scott last week but thankfully I didn’t as Scott had a bad one. Hopefully he should be over last weeks gastro and get closer to his rd 1 score so I might take a punt on him.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Scott

Apparently had gastro last week -thanks for the heads up coach Scotty.

So should have the good runs this week and firing not misfiring on all cylinders.

Disclaimer: Depends on team selection of course.

Undypuncher

Heeney to caleb daniel …. thoughts

Stirlsy

No

Redd

Yes!

Derek

JJ back next week. Nope

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

crazy talk – daniel is too small

Valens_FC

Heeney's last 8 games including the last 6 of 2018:

78, 91, 70, 120, 73, 93 / 85, 67 av 84.6

Excuses this year: he is playing forward and he is carrying injury, not sure what the reasons were for the finish last year.

Feeling that he may be Cyril like….. looks great with what he does, but maybe not a prolific ball winner. Or maybe the excuses are legitimate. He also passed 120 on 5 occasions in 2018.

Is he 2018 Menegola or Billings?!?!?

ZzZCalintZzZ

he is a 90+ Forward and not worth trading out if you started him is my gut feeling

Derek

If you want to cherrypick data, have a look at his numbers from round 1 to round 12 last year. Averaged 112.

He a gun

Valens_FC

One could say the same about Dusty's 2017 data! Those are his most recent games, maybe he now water pistol not gun!

ZzZCalintZzZ

20 rounds to go and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who will avg 10 pts or more a week over Heeney to warrant the trade. Derek made a good point a few days ago regarding Dangerfield F1…. then who? F2-6 is anyone's guess.

Valens_FC

I think that's a great point – as in, if you do boot Heeney it shouldn't be a sideways. I think it can only be to a rookie then either bank the cash or upgrade to one of the "bargain" mids. Worst case you buy Heeney back with the cash you made, best case he turns out to be a Billings and you got out while the going was good.

I didn't have them, but I saw quite a few coaches ruined by holding Billings and Hibberd last season. I'd say holding premos is the best strategy in the majority of cases, but clearly not always.

ZzZCalintZzZ

Sloane and the tale of the Crouch Bros.

2018

Round 1 & 2 with both Crouch Bros: 89, 141 (115.0 avg)
Round 3 & 4 without both Crouch Bros: 78, (59 injured his foot)
Round 5 – 14 Bye Surgery & recovery
Round 15 – 22 with M.crouch & no B.Crouch: 89, 96, 127, 84, 66, 111, 109, 110 (99.0 avg)

2019

Round 1 & 2 with both Crouch Bros: 155, 105 (130.0 avg)

The Crouch brothers are the key to Sloane's ceiling

ZzZCalintZzZ

9 games in total without both Crouch brothers 0 scores 130+
4 games in total with both Crouch brothers 2 scores 130+

Redd

Heeney Balta and Hore my only concerns ATM. Balta to Parker if balta isnt named and looking at Heeney to Daniel. I picked Dalhaus over Kelly so i cant bring another geelong player into my fwd line and im not sold on boak or lycett.

Jess

Balta to parker regardless.

Heeney will end up being much better than Daniel. Only consider Heeney out if not selected

Redd

Cheers Jess

Chris

K. Simpson to Lloyd or hold
And Greene to either worpel or bank spare 300k and go rookie option in either rozee, miers.

G.C.

Righto Community, now that Greene is out 2 weeks in a row it's time for me to give him the flick at F4. I've got 2 realty options I'm looking at:

1. Greene up to Worpel ($16,400 bank remaining)
2. Greene down to Moore ($172,700 remaining)

I'm leaning 1 because I believe in Worpel sticking around in the forward line, but getting my cash generation off to a good start is mighty tempting.

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

worpel is a trap mate

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

2 words brother "cash generatrion"

THE HORSE

Need some help community

I am not happy with Heeney and Lynch (richmond)

Should i hold or trade or both?

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

Bring in Boak and Lycett = 100+ every week mate

DavidC

Definitely trade Lynch. Perhaps hold Heeney for now. I'd trade him if you hadn't used any trades yet.

THE HORSE

Thanks David – any thoughts on who to trade in?

DavidC

Well Worpel is about the same price point if you don't have him. Moore also seems a popular pick but I'm worried about his injury history. Assuming you don't have the cash to go up to a premium like Kelly.

Hawk131415

I had the same Horse, both gone, Lynch isnt ready and will be worse without Riewoldt there, and Heeney is a massive worry, bad ankle and pulled up sore after last game, No to Lycett as dont know how hes going to go, rollercoaster,,,

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

Greene to Rozee
Mills to Lloyd
Thoughts community?

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

I THINK I MIGHT HOLD GREENE – HE IS THE BEST

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK COMMUNITY…… MUCH APPRECIATED

Locked and Loaded

Fyfe and Moore
OR
Rocky and Kelly
OR
Sloane and Worpel
??
Make my decision for me please lmao

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

rocky and kelly like a lek dog on heat

JOCK (OFFICIAL)

LOUD NOISES!!!

DavidC

Rocky and Kelly for mine. Two keepers.

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

NEVER TRADE A PREMIUM

Derek

what about Mundy?

SON OF THE WEST

HOLD SIR

Lazza

That's easy Derek … he's no longer a premo… 🙂

mikeyp

what about Yeo?

SC_Donkey

Rule of thumb to never trade a premo, broke that rule this week. Simmo down to Stewart got handy $130k+ for upgrade later on. Gonna persist on Dusty two more games and see if he turns it around. Happy to hang on Dunkley and Heeney, I think Heeney(injury free) will come good, once Horse pulls his head out of his A** that Heeney needs to be in.the guts.

Glen

Awesome work Kev.

Hey all, Looking to trade in one of Sheed, Rocky or Libba.
Sheed is leading the way through lack of burn history, but is he the best choice…?

Thanks all.

LOUI THE TOY POODLE

LIBBA – HIS OFF HIS CHOPS

KSinny

Libba 100k cheaper and just as good

Rick Grimes

My team concerns are:

Ridley
Goldstein
Higgins

The latter was my POD and after r1 I was happy, but he got no mid time r2 and delivered a turd. Reiwoldt out might help, in some convoluted way, but he's on notice. Goldy I wish I didn't own, but I'll give him another chance, was possibly crook. So possibly just Ridley to Rozee, if not named.

nankthetank

Ridley was unlucky to be dropped, should be in this week so keep an eye out at 6:20

Russty_

If Ridley plays maybe you could just punt Snags for Worpel Rick? Hopefully for our sake, Goldy improves this week.

Cal

What has me worried is Elliot YEOOOO, I think I’ll givr him the flick now I don’t see him putting up similar numbers to last year. Convince me why I should keep

Cal

Is Yeo to Neale a solid trade or hold ?

Rick Grimes

Can't go wrong with Neale. I really thought Yeo would average 110 this year. Was in and out of my team but didn't take him in the end. Dors Gaff in help or hinder?

Mike

Hey guys! I really need any help!

I currently have Jayden Short at D2, with Whitfield D1 and Williams D3. Do I trade Short for B. Smith, gaining 130k in the process? Not quite sure what to do!

Jjj

Hey all, help needed, mills has to go. Do i just replace him with newman and bank cash gen and maybe a d6 or swing moore back and pick up a worpel?

All other suggestions welcome!

Dan

The main trades I'm weighing up are:

Godly to Gawn
Dunkley to Kelly
Hore to Wilkie

Do you think any of these are worth it? Or just hold fire for now?

Russty_

Hey Dan, Bellchambers said he was gonna be "very physical" with Gawn this week, if the whole team targets him again like Port did, he might not score too well this week I think, hopefully he can play through it but regardless, he's gonna drop in price next week anyway so maybe wait and see how Goldy goes this week first.
Dunkley to Kelly could be a wasted trade if Dunkley picks up his game a bit, and Kelly shouldn't rise in price much anyway.
Hore to Wilkie or Scrimshaw if you don't have him would be a good idea I think.

Dan

Thanks Russty!

That's true, I don't want to waste trades early in the season and regret it later. So, I might just focus on Hore to Wilkie (as I already have Scrimshaw).

Russty_

No worries mate, you'll need em later believe me!

Goat____23

Fellas is it worth doing Dunkley to Kelly?

Holty01

Not imo. I’m holding him as he is still being involved in a lot of the centre ballups. Only needs to get a few more clearance and his score will start to improve

Chris_Judd

I have enough money to trade Dusty to whoever I want, but do I trade down to a Rocky and pocket 150k, trade to Sloane and pocket a bit of $, or go with Neale?

kyle

go with neale he a gun

Hawks

Go with Neale

DavidC

Rumour that Sydney Stack to debut for Richmond.

GreendaleFC

Wilkie, Miers and Petruccelle. How do you guys rank these guys considering point scoring and job security?

nankthetank

Wilkie, Miers, Petruccelle in order from worst to best JS

Shake_n_bake

Wingard back in

Hawks

Or in for the first time, in a Hawks jumper

Maverick_

3 weeks into the season & i have still get the serious Thursday night panics.. does it get any easier as the year goes on Haha

Still haven’t worked out my Greene dilemma $1500 off getting worpel, devo! so next logical move looks to be down to rozee. Depending on hore he may also be a sideways trade to scrimshaw for a double trade.. if hore doesn’t get named with May out when will he..

SC_Kev7

Just wait until we get to the Wednesday night game in a few weeks. That will test us!!

DavidC

Zac Clarke in apparently

hedski

No Hore, welcome Scrimshaw.

Holty01

Still have Hore Hedski but only rookie I would consider that I don’t have in the backs is Rozee and just a bit expensive for my liking. I’ll use Hore for the loop this week I think

hedski

I'll only go to Scrimshaw if he's in the 22 tomorrow arvo Holty, atm Clark has the E on him with Hore on field.

Hart_attack

Hore for loophole or trade to duursma

Russty_

Get Duursma…gotta get the cash rolling in.

nankthetank

Essendon bringing in clarke could mean that dons are gonna give gawn the same treatment that port did

Russty_

Bellchambers has already said he will be doing that Nank…hope Gawny's up to the challenge.

nankthetank

Well there you go, keep the VC off him this week

ZzZCalintZzZ

it's up to the Melbourne team mates to help out Gawn with that shite. They were puss puss against Port, will they learn?

Russty_

That's it Dave, time for the Dee Boys to toughen up and give back as good as they get.
Bombers will probably stop when the Dees are 10 goals in front though lol

kyle

do i need to get parker? if i do trade petrucelle or balta

nankthetank

Do you need him? Probably but if balta keeps getting games you could get away with it. If so Balta

Russty_

Balta made the cut…noice!

The G Train

Out
Greene and Hore

In
Rozee and Moore

Any thoughts appreciated

SammyO

Sounds good

Pranav

does anyone know if hore was an emergency last week?

Hawks

He was

Liam

Obviously Constable is a must have rookie, but is he worth using up a trade in getting rid of either atkins, gibbons or wagner?

nankthetank

Hope you did mate

Hawk131415

yep

Lekdog

Let's talk teams and last minute #Supercoach trades LIVE right now at: https://www.twitch.tv/lekdoggames

Jess

Jordan sweet! Will leave hore in as a loophole option.

Maverick_

On an extended bench. Unlikely to make the cut tomorrow night

The Green Shoots

Who is the best rookie to pick out of Scrimshaw, Wilkie, Miers, Mckay and Balta. Not looking for infield option just a bench cover who can make some dosh and fair JS? Thoughts would be great community

hedski

Scrim if he's named tomorrow.

Maverick_

scrimshaw

hedski

Who to bench?
Clark or Collins or Scrimshaw?
Holding off trading Scrimshaw in until he's definitely named in the 22 tomorrow afternoon

ZzZCalintZzZ

Clark with E wait n see all too easy 😋

AuroraBorealis?!

Same mate

hedski

That's how I have it but won't be able to deploy if Scrimshaw comes in will be punting Hore (not going to hold Hore to loop one score, would prefer Scrims cash Gen), Burgess is my other bench spot.
Leaning towards playing Collins/Scrim over Clark (go cats).

Joel

I reckon I’ll wait a week on Greene play a rookie and have a second look at Marshall for st Kilda. Is he rucking for them? Am I Crazy? Greene is such a hard price when I have no money

Russty_

Hey Joel, he looks great in the Ruck but not sure if he keeps the job when Longer gets back, could be relegated to the fwd line, I think Richo should keep Marshall Rucking and kick Longer the spud to the kerb.

Funkhouser

Constable or Parker? Can get one of the rookies I have missed, which one to make the most money?

Hawks

Parker for mine, better job security

The G Train

Have both and I think Constable is the better option, does not rely on goals to score well and has more upside. Had 30 last week, all he has to do is clean up his DE and he'll be averaging 80s until the bye hopefully

The G Train

But like Hawks said, cant see parker getting dropped anytime soon

Russty_

5 ins at the Saints this week, and Wilkie at the bottom of the 8 man bench list…not sure he keeps his place.
Hunter Clark might get it, just conjecture though.

ZzZCalintZzZ

Won't be surprised if he is squeezed out. But I'm not changing rookies.

Steeeve

Extended benches are alphabetical mate. So wilkie will always be at the end.

Russty_

Yeah but look at the top 4 Steeeve, I'd bank on those 4 playing and the bottom 4 missing, Acres averaged 88 last year , and Clark is better than Wilkie I reckon.

James

Thoughts on Will powell? To downgrade from Toby Greene

BlueBaggerJosh

I was looking at him too mate in the exact same trade, looks like a solid 20 plus disposal 1 goal winger. Might pull the trigger, what do you think mate?

James

Yep, i made the move. More job security than miers and looks like he'll score more consistently as well

BlueBaggerJosh

Is greene worth the trade if i can loop Balta and Petruccelle?
Thinking of using the trade for Setterfield to Parker instead.

SC_Kev7

I’d punt him anyway…

nickgonzalez771

Martin to T Kelly
Ridley to Rozee.

Am I going to regret these choices? I feel like there’s just too much upside compared to who I’ve currently got. The plan is to move Kelly to my forward line later on in the season once I’ve made upgrades.

The G Train

I would trade Martin to a mid premo in the 500k range such as The Bont, M Crouch, Sloane, Coniglio ect and worry about bringing in Kelly later. But I agree with the trades

Noirlust

Rozee great trade this week if you took it

KSinny

Is Parker a must have? Only player I have not playing is Hore and my 2 fwd rooks are Balta and Petruccule.pls need advice

KSinny

Also should I go Hore to Scrimshaw? So I can either get Parker for a playing rookie or Scrimshaw for Hore. Cam only do 1

SC_Kev7

Prefer Parker trade. B.e of -108! Will make cash quickly

Hawks

Id go Parker, he has good job security.

TommyC99

Field Clark and look to trade hore to Wilkie if named or use hore as loophole and put the E on Clark?

KSinny

I'm using him as loophole atm

LeDoctor

Can't bring in Scrimshaw for Hore (-3k) unless I trade Balta to Parker (+3k), do I do both trades or wait for another defensive rookie?

Mick

Wait, Scrima in the extended bench this week anyway

LeDoctor

Good thoughts, probably won't go for it as Balta has got everything to gain (played one poor game) and Parker, after playing Essendon and GC, has everything to lose.

Hawk131415

Named on bench

Holty01

Good luck everyone this week. Hope someone wins the money for the round

Hawks

Who to trade out of the defensive line – Ridley, Hore or Joyce?

Appreciate your thoughts

Holty01

Ridley. That’s a lot of money sitting on ur bench when not getting a game.

hedski

Looking fwd to the first round of league matchups against some good coaches from the community this week.
GO CATTAS 👍🍻

Russty_

Good luck this week mate, let the League fun begin 🙂

hedski

Got you in the rat pack Russ 👍

Russty_

Hey mate!, we're all matched up except for that Laird spud I have, hope he can deliver something half decent…good luck for the year mate.

Hawk131415

Playing you first up in Jolly Jockers Russty… good luck mate

Hawk131415

Got Shake n bake in A Graders

Russty_

Might need some luck this week mate with the Crows sucking it….all fun though, long way from over yet, good luck to you too mate.

Jim

Should i be having a rookie that doesnt play on the bench so they i can do the captain loophole?

Russty_

Yeah that's right Jim, best position is in the ruck..when you get a good vice captain score, place the non playing rookie onfield with the C on them, and someone who is playing in the same position off field with the E on them.

CJay

Have J Hately GWS 149k on the mid bench and has been emergency every week not getting a game.
Happy with all my other rookies
Is a Trade to LDU for an extra spend the 48.7k worth it?
Cheers Community

Sharkmove_King

Yes , do that for sure

Maverick_

you need to move him on yes…
unsure how i feel about LDU but if your other rooks are all good then go for it CJay

CJay

Thanks SMK and Mav
Don''t like spending '$'s on the expensive rookies but I guess sometimes you got to spend a bit to make a bit

Russty_

What the hell is Laird doing???? aaaah!

FearTheBeard

😐

ZzZCalintZzZ

unreal stuff! Has to be his lowest 1st qtr score ever

Maverick_

i do not know but what i do know is i'll be picking him up for near 400k at this rate.. 😉 haha
he will bounce back yet fellas he knows how to find the pill off HB. dont worry

Matt

Some opinions please

OPTION 1:
Greene to rozee
Hore to scrimshaw

OPTION 2:
Greene to rozee
Heeney to Lloyd

Maverick_

option 1.
sit back, crack a stubby and watch the cows fatten up matt.

ZzZCalintZzZ

Lot of people brought in Sloane and broke him 😞

Russty_

What's Laird's excuse…not getting tagged again is he?

ZzZCalintZzZ

He was on the pine for bloody nearly 10 mins after getting that 1 possie… I have no idea why he ain't involved in the game after that

Russty_

Doing a bit better now, maybe all is not lost.

TOPHAWK1

Glad I didnt start with Laird this year. He is dropping a massive pile of cow dung. Started him in three previous years. Gotta know when to hold em and when to fold em.

_Kyle

Sometimes a bit of luck runs your way in this great game mate. Id been tossing up between lloyd and laird all pre season. Come round 1 lock out i was looking for laird assuming i had him but id swapped them over last minute without remembering. Lloyd turned out to be the better pick it seems

Russty_

79's not a disaster mate, not that I won't trade his ass out to Lloyd next week,,,lol

Hawk131415

Gotta trade kelly now too Russty

Hawk131415

Laird on 81, trade him out lol

Beezneez

Torn between Laird and Lloyd at start and went Laird. He is a gun on his day but last week he was tagged heavily. The same in the first quarter last night for 1 possession. He recovered okay after that. Bloody taggers.

Lazza

I still don't think he's at his best …. he got a lot of cheap kicks last night … and still scored very well for 3 Qtrs… shouldn't be too long before he makes his way back into the Top 6 DEFs….

Russty_

Dahlhaus has been a gun this year so far, rejuvenated in his new club…might be too hard to ignore soon if he keeps this up.

dontblushbaby

Yes, could be a top 8 ? I nearly went Heeney down to him and pick up a 110k, but decided not too only because the Swans play Carlton

Russty_

Might be an option going forward, great to see a guy who everyone thought was done being relevant join a new club and kick butt.
Hope he keeps it going in the 2nd half and doesn't end up on 80 lol

Hawk131415

I mentioned this earlier in the pre season and got shot down a little, new club, always works, watch Wingard,,,

Lazza

Was thinking exactly that .. I held Greene over this week.. might move him to Dahl if he doesn’t front up for R4

Russty_

Could be a great trade Lazza, Dahl is looking good, hasn't scored much this quarter though, you'd hope he cracks the ton at least.

Hawk131415

3 Cats in the fwd line? Byes will be a killer,

Derek

Maybe, if cats keep winning

hedski

Round 23 fwd line….
Dunkley, Danger, Kelly, Menegola, Dahlhous, Hawkins, Miers, Parfitt.
Ha ha.

Russty_

Stuff the byes Hed!….Go Cattas!

Noirlust

Its scary, but so probable at this stage

ZzZCalintZzZ

crows are awful tonight and I have 4 of them on the field. Kills my round score when this happens.

Captain_Risky

I only have Brad Crouch and he's going Ok. Though I might have been able to pick up laird cheap in a few weeks but unfortunately he had a better second quarter.

TommyC99

HOw is Laird on 45 at half time? Was obviously a lot better in the second but not sure it warranted such a big quarter

Nice_Person

13 touches few marks and tackles. What more can the bloke do?

TommyC99

Thought he butchered it a bit at times. Tbh didnt think he had that many touches. Ah well

Russty_

Very few on the site tonight, is everyone just watching or are they all Thursday night shopping?…let's get the chatter going peeps.

ZzZCalintZzZ

Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?

Russty_

Rolling along…..I don't know the rest….lol

ZzZCalintZzZ

Haha

Doc_1

Rookie error …. argh.

That moment when you check your progress at halftime to see your VC Danger killing it. But where’s his vc gone?
Forgot the damn reverse trade reset my vc and captain.

Looks like it’s got to be Gawn into Grundy now.

Russty_

Hey Doc, Gawn might get bullied again by the Bombers but I think they'd better be worried about their own crappiness rather than that.
Grundy should do ok against Vardy and Hickey.

Doc_1

Yeah, not the end of the world.
Will probably lose out, but not disastrous.

Could be worse, could have been stuck with trades I couldn’t reverse.

Hazey

McCarthy down to Parker & Martin up to Gaff as a POD? CRAZY?

Russty_

I'm all for getting rid of McCarthy Hazey, the guy's a walking injury magnet….Gaff's a big call though, could you go to someone who started round 1, and is doing well so far?

Hazey

Yeah, I have enough to grab anyone…. And being Libran can't make about decision to save myself! Am thinking Neale.

Lost hours of my life starting at VHS covers at Video Ezy as a kid…. American Ninja or Commando!?!?!

Russty_

McCarthy to Parker and Martin to the best you can get I say…Neale is very durable and still young, set and forget.
Commando was far superior mate!…Arnie was the man in the 80's haha

Hazey

The first scene, Arnie chopping wood, sees reflection in the razor sharp axe…. Game over bad guys!

Russty_

He's also bulletproof, which helps…lol 89 guys shooting at him at the same time and not a scratch…lol

Hazey

Not to mention Alyssia Milano… May have been my first pre-teen twang!

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Decent game of footy.
Anyone's game at 3/4 time.
Game on.

Crouching 1, crouching 2 how good.
Reckon danger is gonna have a big last qtr.

Game on ….

ZzZCalintZzZ

And Sloane woke up from the dead that qtr.

ZzZCalintZzZ

C'mon Danger 40 pt last quarter to put this VC to bed for the round

Russty_

Hoping so Dave, set and forget Bines as the perma Cap haha

Maverick_

i'm loving these close last quarters so far this season.
makes great supercoach scores

Ryan

Sloane a bit stiff SC score?

ZzZCalintZzZ

That 50 mtr penalty in the first qtr has hurt his scaling sadly. That alone is -8
He doubled his score in that 3rd qtr though 👍🏻

hedski

Cracking game, love Thursday night footy Kev!
(Except for the SC fkaround)

dontblushbaby

Started Constable on the bench was a mistake, went with Walsh and Butters instead, also didn't go VC on Danger ,on a 100 at 3/4 time , see what happens

_Kyle

B crouch would be looking at an enormous acore if his DE wasnt at 55%. Hit some bloody targets 😩

AuroraBorealis?!

Jeez Derek, only 4 uniques in our game in the cash league. Its essentially Laird v Hurn, and (Macrae & Rockliff) v (Merrett & Dusty). Going to be interesting to see how that plays out

Russty_

You two could be brothers from another mother?…lol

Derek

Do you have Sloane as well?

AuroraBorealis?!
