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.

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 · 04/04/2019 at 12:00

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 12:32

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:12

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

          KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 13:14

          Cheers mate I'll have a look

Tyler · 04/04/2019 at 12:07

Option 1

Greene- Moore
Hore- rooze

Option 2

Yeo- Brayshaw
Greene- b.crouch

    KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 12:32

    2

    Rivo · 04/04/2019 at 12:54

    Yep option 2

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 14:15

    Just Green to Moore

Rivo · 04/04/2019 at 12:18

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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:44

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:07

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

Dylan · 04/04/2019 at 12:26

Trade Ridley and Savage to Hore and Lloyd

Or

Ridley and Savage to Wilkie and Whitfield

Steeeve · 04/04/2019 at 12:38

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 · 05/04/2019 at 19:10

    Hold

Shake_n_bake · 04/04/2019 at 12:48

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 12:52

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

      Stirlsy · 04/04/2019 at 13:38

      So May is out till May, and a Hore is going to do his job, is this correct?

        Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 13:50

        Hmm If this is true & hore May have a permanent-part time job for a month I’m cooling my jets on my to scrimshaw trade …

          Stirlsy · 04/04/2019 at 14:01

          His out till at least rnd 5 im reading in a few places, so Shake is correct, Maverick

            BobbyGee · 04/04/2019 at 16:42

            Dees had their captains run this morning which is usually the 22 plus 1-2 others. No Hore amongst them.

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 14:07

      Hahahahahahaha clever Rus,,

Jack · 04/04/2019 at 12:59

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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:14

    It's in his name to come back strong

      Jess · 04/04/2019 at 14:51

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

Northerner · 04/04/2019 at 13:05

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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:28

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:21

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

    Sharkmove_King · 04/04/2019 at 20:14

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:20

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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:28

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:01

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

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 14:16

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:27

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

    Northerner · 04/04/2019 at 13:59

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

Simo · 04/04/2019 at 13:48

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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:16

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

      Simo · 04/04/2019 at 14:17

      Cheers Reddman, I already have Parker.

        Redd · 04/04/2019 at 14:36

        Miers it is!

TheBenoFactors · 04/04/2019 at 13:50

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

    Redd · 04/04/2019 at 14:23

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

      TheBenoFactors · 04/04/2019 at 15:15

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 17:26

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 13:58

Heeney to caleb daniel …. thoughts

    Stirlsy · 04/04/2019 at 14:03

    No

    Redd · 04/04/2019 at 14:17

    Yes!

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 14:33

    JJ back next week. Nope

    LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:13

    crazy talk – daniel is too small

Valens_FC · 04/04/2019 at 14:05

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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:23

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

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 14:41

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:43

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

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 14:49

        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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:56

          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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:12

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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:37

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

Redd · 04/04/2019 at 14:12

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 · 04/04/2019 at 14:30

    Balta to parker regardless.

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

      Redd · 04/04/2019 at 14:34

      Cheers Jess

Chris · 04/04/2019 at 14:24

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. · 04/04/2019 at 14:55

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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:07

    worpel is a trap mate

    LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:09

    2 words brother "cash generatrion"

THE HORSE · 04/04/2019 at 15:03

Need some help community

I am not happy with Heeney and Lynch (richmond)

Should i hold or trade or both?

    LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:06

    Bring in Boak and Lycett = 100+ every week mate

    DavidC · 04/04/2019 at 15:17

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

      THE HORSE · 04/04/2019 at 15:22

      Thanks David – any thoughts on who to trade in?

        DavidC · 04/04/2019 at 15:32

        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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:37

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:05

Greene to Rozee
Mills to Lloyd
Thoughts community?

    LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:55

    I THINK I MIGHT HOLD GREENE – HE IS THE BEST

      LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 05/04/2019 at 16:03

      THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK COMMUNITY…… MUCH APPRECIATED

    JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 16:04

    I'd do both trades.

Locked and Loaded · 04/04/2019 at 15:09

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

    LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:12

    DavidC · 04/04/2019 at 15:14

    Rocky and Kelly for mine. Two keepers.

LOUI THE TOY POODLE · 04/04/2019 at 15:14

NEVER TRADE A PREMIUM

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 16:16

    what about Mundy?

      SON OF THE WEST · 05/04/2019 at 16:03

      HOLD SIR

      Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 16:05

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

    mikeyp · 05/04/2019 at 16:15

    what about Yeo?

    SC_Donkey · 05/04/2019 at 16:18

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:20

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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:30

    LIBBA – HIS OFF HIS CHOPS

    KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 15:42

    Libba 100k cheaper and just as good

Rick Grimes · 04/04/2019 at 15:31

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 · 04/04/2019 at 18:02

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 18:19

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

Cal · 04/04/2019 at 15:42

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 · 04/04/2019 at 16:13

    Is Yeo to Neale a solid trade or hold ?

      Rick Grimes · 04/04/2019 at 17:59

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:54

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 · 04/04/2019 at 15:57

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 · 04/04/2019 at 16:13

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_ · 04/04/2019 at 16:33

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 17:33

      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_ · 04/04/2019 at 17:59

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

Goat____23 · 04/04/2019 at 16:14

Fellas is it worth doing Dunkley to Kelly?

    Holty01 · 04/04/2019 at 16:30

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 16:36

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 · 04/04/2019 at 18:19

    go with neale he a gun

    Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 18:20

    Go with Neale

DavidC · 04/04/2019 at 16:38

Rumour that Sydney Stack to debut for Richmond.

GreendaleFC · 04/04/2019 at 17:18

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

    nankthetank · 04/04/2019 at 18:04

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

Shake_n_bake · 04/04/2019 at 17:52

Wingard back in

    Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 18:24

    Or in for the first time, in a Hawks jumper

Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 17:56

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:44

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

DavidC · 04/04/2019 at 18:16

Zac Clarke in apparently

hedski · 04/04/2019 at 18:24

No Hore, welcome Scrimshaw.

    Holty01 · 04/04/2019 at 19:34

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:44

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 18:27

Hore for loophole or trade to duursma

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 18:30

    Get Duursma…gotta get the cash rolling in.

nankthetank · 04/04/2019 at 18:33

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 18:37

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

      nankthetank · 04/04/2019 at 18:39

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

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 19:19

        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_ · 04/04/2019 at 19:23

          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 · 04/04/2019 at 18:36

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

    nankthetank · 04/04/2019 at 18:37

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

Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 18:43

Balta made the cut…noice!

The G Train · 04/04/2019 at 18:43

Out
Greene and Hore

In
Rozee and Moore

Any thoughts appreciated

    SammyO · 04/04/2019 at 18:50

    Sounds good

Pranav · 04/04/2019 at 18:47

does anyone know if hore was an emergency last week?

    Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 19:12

    He was

Liam · 04/04/2019 at 18:49

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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:44

    Hope you did mate

    Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 23:13

    yep

Lekdog · 04/04/2019 at 18:56

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

Jess · 04/04/2019 at 18:56

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

    Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 19:40

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

The Green Shoots · 04/04/2019 at 18:59

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:44

    Scrim if he's named tomorrow.

      Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:04

      scrimshaw

hedski · 04/04/2019 at 19:02

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

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 19:11

    Clark with E wait n see all too easy 😋

      AuroraBorealis?! · 04/04/2019 at 19:17

      Same mate

      hedski · 04/04/2019 at 19:19

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:04

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_ · 04/04/2019 at 19:17

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:04

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

    Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 19:10

    Parker for mine, better job security

    The G Train · 04/04/2019 at 19:11

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:12

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

Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 19:05

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:09

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

    Steeeve · 04/04/2019 at 22:58

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

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:02

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:10

Thoughts on Will powell? To downgrade from Toby Greene

    BlueBaggerJosh · 04/04/2019 at 20:19

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:26

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

BlueBaggerJosh · 04/04/2019 at 19:10

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

    SC_Kev7 · 04/04/2019 at 19:41

    I’d punt him anyway…

nickgonzalez771 · 04/04/2019 at 19:16

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:18

    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 · 08/04/2019 at 11:47

    Rozee great trade this week if you took it

KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 19:24

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:28

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:41

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

      Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 19:41

      Id go Parker, he has good job security.

TommyC99 · 04/04/2019 at 19:25

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

    KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 19:37

    I'm using him as loophole atm

LeDoctor · 04/04/2019 at 19:25

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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:26

    Wait, Scrima in the extended bench this week anyway

      LeDoctor · 04/04/2019 at 19:32

      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 · 05/04/2019 at 20:11

      Named on bench

Holty01 · 04/04/2019 at 19:32

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

Hawks · 04/04/2019 at 19:39

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

Appreciate your thoughts

    Holty01 · 04/04/2019 at 19:46

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

hedski · 04/04/2019 at 19:47

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 19:48

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

      hedski · 04/04/2019 at 21:16

      Got you in the rat pack Russ 👍

        Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:37

        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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:27

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

        Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 21:29

        Got Shake n bake in A Graders

        Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:35

        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 · 04/04/2019 at 19:51

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:19

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 20:04

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 · 04/04/2019 at 20:22

    Yes , do that for sure

      Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:31

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 20:36

        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_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:19

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

    FearTheBeard · 04/04/2019 at 20:20

    😐

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 20:25

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

    Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:28

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 20:20

Some opinions please

OPTION 1:
Greene to rozee
Hore to scrimshaw

OPTION 2:
Greene to rozee
Heeney to Lloyd

    Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:44

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

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 20:22

Lot of people brought in Sloane and broke him 😞

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:25

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

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 20:30

      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_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:36

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

TOPHAWK1 · 04/04/2019 at 20:26

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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:06

    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_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:15

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

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:16

      Gotta trade kelly now too Russty

        Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:21

        Laird on 81, trade him out lol

    Beezneez · 05/04/2019 at 12:38

    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 · 05/04/2019 at 13:34

      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_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:38

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 · 04/04/2019 at 20:51

    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_ · 04/04/2019 at 20:56

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:45

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

    Lazza · 04/04/2019 at 21:04

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

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:43

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:46

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

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 22:38

    Maybe, if cats keep winning

    hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:32

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

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:38

      Stuff the byes Hed!….Go Cattas!

      Noirlust · 08/04/2019 at 11:48

      Its scary, but so probable at this stage

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 20:55

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

    Captain_Risky · 04/04/2019 at 21:04

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:07

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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:09

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

      TommyC99 · 04/04/2019 at 21:46

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

Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:13

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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:34

    Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:38

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

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 21:39

        Haha

Doc_1 · 04/04/2019 at 21:14

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_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:42

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:47

      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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:42

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:47

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:00

      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_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:03

        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 · 04/04/2019 at 22:05

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

            Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:07

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

              Hazey · 04/04/2019 at 22:09

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

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/04/2019 at 21:53

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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:54

    And Sloane woke up from the dead that qtr.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 21:54

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

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 21:58

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

      Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:03

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

Ryan · 04/04/2019 at 21:54

Sloane a bit stiff SC score?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 21:57

    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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:55

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

dontblushbaby · 04/04/2019 at 21:56

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 · 04/04/2019 at 21:57

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

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/04/2019 at 22:05

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_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:16

    You two could be brothers from another mother?…lol

      Derek · 04/04/2019 at 22:37

      Do you have Sloane as well?

        AuroraBorealis?! · 04/04/2019 at 22:38

        Yeah mate, my main POD this year

          Derek · 04/04/2019 at 23:20

          I see you even looped Clarke like I did. Interesting. Are you taking his score?

            JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2019 at 23:23

            I think most people who had Clark and Hore would have looped Clark, Derek.

            AuroraBorealis?! · 05/04/2019 at 19:48

            Pretty common move this week Derek, I will be taking his score as i can't see Burgess getting more than that

    Holty01 · 04/04/2019 at 23:05

    Which one is our cash league lads? I’ve somehow went in a few and lost track of the cash league

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/04/2019 at 19:49

      The one im talking about here is just called "JR Cash League"

Ken · 04/04/2019 at 22:09

Kelly heading down into the rooms

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:11

    Ah crap…brought him in this week!

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:12

      Same, god damn it

        Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:13

        Bloody hell..hopefully it was just a corky.

          Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 23:14

          ankle Scott said

    COREYSC · 05/04/2019 at 00:10

    Kelly is alright they strapped him up and he finished the game

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 00:15

      Hope he's ok Corey…bloody shit luck if he goes down the same week ya trade him in, good score though this week regardless.

        COREYSC · 05/04/2019 at 16:14

        Chris Scott wasn’t concerned about him in the press conference, I have Dunkley and Heeney alongside Danger in the forward line so I have bigger concerns so I’m glad T.Kelly is ok

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/04/2019 at 22:10

Thanks to all those who traded in Kelly this week and cursed him, he's gone straight down to the rooms (looks like he's done an ankle)

    Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:13

    Knee mate

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:18

      Isn't this just the way SC goes though?….so many variables and unexpected shit happening all the time, makes planning almost impossible.
      It becomes a winging it scenario.

        Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:24

        did it look serious? i missed it

          Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:26

          Not sure yet Mav…hopefully not godammit.

          Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:27

          was in a tackle Mav

    AuroraBorealis?! · 04/04/2019 at 22:16

    Just for the record, i blame patch: https://gyazo.com/4b8087bfb5743f4d60d3ed98d071c3e

    Rick Grimes · 04/04/2019 at 22:24

    He looked keen to get back on. Not overly serious.

    kinglear009 · 04/04/2019 at 22:35

    He managed to gain 10 points off the ground lol – what a gun

hedski · 04/04/2019 at 22:10

Of course TK is injured when I trade him , Cattas!!

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 22:14

really sick of these long stints on the bench this year already

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:35

    At least we don't have to look at those spuds in the pink uniforms getting in the way all the time anymore Dave….that rule is a good one.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 22:45

      True

Rick Grimes · 04/04/2019 at 22:24

Hope people held Menegola.

    kinglear009 · 04/04/2019 at 22:35

    Very happy with him

      Westy · 05/04/2019 at 10:28

      Yep. Liking “Many goals ah”

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 12:01

    I would have held if I had him … a bit miffed he produced it this week, was hoping to pick him up cheaper as my first upgrade. Looks like he will only drop about $8k now …

Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:29

Constable is a gun

    KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 22:30

    Amen

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:33

    Yowza!…99, I'll take that any old time.

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 22:33

    On my bench……… again

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:34

      oh no derek, e on him??

      hedski · 04/04/2019 at 22:40

      Why?

        Noirlust · 08/04/2019 at 11:50

        Again, Why

      dontblushbaby · 04/04/2019 at 22:43

      Derek, you have him on field , I'm playing you in the Guns & Rookies , however I have him on the bench, grrr

        Derek · 04/04/2019 at 23:14

        That’s right, I swung Drew forward. That makes me very happy. Stoked with that. And I don’t have Mundy.

    hedski · 04/04/2019 at 22:40

    I said in round 23 last year after he didn't get a gig, that he would be one of the first picked rookies this year Hawk.

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:42

      Great call Hedski, hes got some class

        hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:41

        👍

      The Ranger · 04/04/2019 at 22:45

      Cats look good Hedski.

        hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:40

        Early days Ranger but yeah, love the desperation, tough early draw but liking what I see.
        Gary "Brownlow" Rohan and Dollhouse look a lot better than I thought when I was cursing them at trade time.

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 11:58

          The doll is back big time

Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:30

How come no one has told Bruce 'special' Mcavaney' that Sam Menegola's name isn't Menengola?…bloody tool , gives me the shits.. it ain't that hard to pronounce someone's name properly.
Same as the muppets who still call Jack Steven…Jack Stevens…get it right dumbarses….lol

    Boris_Baconbeer · 04/04/2019 at 22:34

    I agree Roosty 😉

    Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:35

    Calm down bro lol

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:36

      I'll calm your down :)…seriously though…has no one ever told them?

        Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:38

        Go easy son!! take the Danger VC

          hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:43

          Not taking 128, going with Macrae

            Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:44

            Agree Hedski…fk 128 lol

    Boris_Baconbeer · 04/04/2019 at 22:36

    But yes you are right.

    COREYSC · 05/04/2019 at 16:16

    It’s probably not that which annoys me the most it’s the saying the same word or player name 6 or 7 times just annoying and pointless when a player kicks for goal or takes a mark

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 22:36

Another VC score that is baiting most of us.
So who is taking it?
i think I might. Just got that feeling that all the popular Captain choices won't fair much better.

    TommyC99 · 04/04/2019 at 22:40

    Macrae is looking real ominous against the suns. 130 is boarderline but going into the round, i decided cut off was 140, think ill stick to it

    Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:41

    not taking that

    JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2019 at 22:48

    Taking, 125 is my cut off.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 23:02

      My rule is 129. Strange number but it's that sycholigcal must be 130+ that most people suffer from.
      Now Danger got 128. I think bank it rather than risk your 2nd chance Captain a) getting injured b) having a stinker c) getting a hard tag.
      Yeah… think I'm taking this VC score this time.

        JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2019 at 23:09

        I'm really black and white on it, I set the 125 two seasons ago and have stuck to it, if my VC scores 124, that doesn't cut it, 125+ does, it just takes the emotion out of it.

        Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 23:09

        Ill be keeping the c on macrae

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:06

    Reckon I might roll the dice with Fyfe this week Dave….playing at home against the Saints.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 23:22

      Yeah I have Macrae and Fyfe as back up choices but not risking a poop Captain score just for 20pts more.
      Go with your gut Russty & Hawk. 🙂

        Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:24

        Fyfe to score 157 this week mate, you heard it here first, news flash lol

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 23:32

          Ok 😆

            Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:35

            He'll be all fired up after the attacks on him during the week about his lack of defensive pressure from old hasbeen lahoosaaars. 🙂

              ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 23:52

              Lol Jim Carey

    Rick · 05/04/2019 at 11:37

    Must take 128 every day of the week. Macrae gets injured in first quarter and you'd spew.

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 11:49

      Nah Rick, all in mate

TommyC99 · 04/04/2019 at 22:42

You'd take Clarks 65 over setterfield wouldnt ya?

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:44

    For sure Tommy

Vinny · 04/04/2019 at 22:42

Hey guys, just noticed Scrimshaw is starting in the bench? You wouldn’t of gotten dropped from last game would he? How did he fair when the doggies stormed home?

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:49

    Scored 79 last week Vinny, hope he doesn't lose his gig this week, would be hard done by if he did.

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 22:58

      Surely not, should play

ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 22:55

670 from 7 tonight. Will sleep ok with that, always scary when you have more than 5 in a game

    Vinny · 04/04/2019 at 23:01

    Nice ZzZ, I’m currently 632 for six. So yeah I’m stoked as wel.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 04/04/2019 at 23:04

      Nice Vinny

Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 22:59

Well it's no secret now, Atkins is crap, trade him out as fodder after he makes his measly amount of money to the next big thing coming along, and they will soon.
6 disposals and 1 goal for the game is not good enough, reckon he'll get dropped next week anyhoo.

    Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 23:11

    Yeah hes got to go!

      Hawk131415 · 04/04/2019 at 23:11

      Hate making early trades

        Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:14

        It's just a Darwin theory process Hawk, only the strong survive…he'll make some cash and then he steps aside for a stronger contender…have to trade early to determine the natural selection of who should be in your side or not.

    JohnDJ59 · 04/04/2019 at 23:15

    My next two trades will be to two good rookies on the bubble, Hore and Atkins will be out when they come along.

    Ben · 04/04/2019 at 23:23

    He won't get dropped. His role will never be high scoring as a pressure small forward. Cats also keep winning.

      Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:30

      Don't care if he gets dropped or not Ben, he'll be dropped from my side.

        Twilightingale · 04/04/2019 at 23:51

        Leave him on the bench for a slow burn. Can’t imagine any coaches has him on field. Has decent job security which is all you want for a bench rookie.

        Who would you trade him for?

          Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:57

          Not sure yet Twilightingdale…not sure he'll have much job security after tonight's performance, ..maybe will leave him there for now but will have to address more pressing issues.
          Not sure if Kelly plays yet as one of the issues.

            JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 00:11

            If Kelly is injured, I'm just going to put him on the bench till he's better. I have cover in Parker.

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 23:30

    He did a good job on Laird 1st quarter

    hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:47

    Played his role, will drop the odd turd but throw in a 70-80 every now and then, M10 slow burner

    UpBeat · 05/04/2019 at 13:42

    Don't waste a trade.

kinglear009 · 04/04/2019 at 23:19

Who's taking VC Danger? Reckon most (including me) will, but going someone else could be a ripping POD this week.

    Russty_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:26

    Nah not taking it King…Fyfe will gut the Saints like fat weak pigs lol.

    Derek · 04/04/2019 at 23:28

    Nope

    TBone_9 · 04/04/2019 at 23:39

    I reckon I’ll be taking it mate. No Macrae or Fyfe in my team otherwise I’d be rolling with them king

    hedski · 04/04/2019 at 23:49

    Na, Macrae for me your majesty.

    SC_Donkey · 05/04/2019 at 00:25

    Rolling the dice with Grundy(C) last 3 games he played against WC 99, 116 and 141. Was up against Lycett and Vardy then. Now with Hickey and Vardy. I think he'll be pumped against the eagles this week.

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 00:35

      Yeah Donk I reckon Grundy could go big this week too…wish I had him, good C choice I think.

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 12:05

    nup, going with Macrae… he had an average game last week and still clocked up 127… Thought Danger was on for 140 … a couple of frees against stymied him ..

    JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 12:37

    I'm taking Dangers VC score, 125 is my cut off point, some people have a higher one, but at least with mine I'm not tempted to go against it if the score comes in lower.

      kinglear009 · 05/04/2019 at 13:02

      Precisely my feeling. Even the average elite midfielder is at best 50/50 to beat his score, which makes the risk a zero-sum game

      Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 13:27

      I haven't learnt my lesson from Cripps R1 … that cost me dearly .. and it was Danger too… maybe I should reconsider … yeh, nah, yeh … well I have until Sunday to make up my mind… and check out how I'm going in the comps.

        JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 15:06

        Hey Lazza do you have a cut off point for your loophole score, or do you just go on your gut.

          Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 15:50

          Hi John,
          My cut off has been 130 for the last 2 years … it served me pretty well… but that wasn't hard last year with Gawn et el… … I was going with it again … but not taking Cripps's 126 in R1 has unnerved me … f the sake of swallowing 4 points cost me '000s of positions. This time it is only 2 points off my cut-off… writing this I'm starting to convince myself to bank it …

            JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 16:01

            Hi Lazza maybe lower it to 125, like mine, makes things a whole lot easier, since under 125 really isn't good enough, but at 125 or over is, people who have 130 or more are just making it hard for themselves, although when your C pumps out a 150+ it would feel good, but is the chance of 25 more points worth it if your C is injured during the game.

    Beezneez · 05/04/2019 at 14:48

    My cutoff is 130 but then I took Cripp's 126 earlier and it turned out good. Also had Coniglio's good score and Danger' last week so have been lucky. I don't have Fyfe or Macrae unfortunately otherwise I'd probably take them. Think Coniglio will score well against the Suns. My dilemma is I have Hore as a loophole but will have to take Clark's 66 as e – thinking Duursma may outscore him.. I have Sweet to possibly loophole if he's not named (should have taken Bines). If Sweet misses out I will loophole and take Danger's score – a bird in the hand. Have to make a decision tonight on Hore or Sweet or go with Coniglio Oliver or Grundy.

      Beezneez · 05/04/2019 at 14:56

      * make that Coniglio against Richmond not the Suns.

Danners · 04/04/2019 at 23:32

Hi lads
Unsure whether I should be making trades this week
My team currently
DEF: Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
MID: Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Treloar, Sloane, Walsh, Constable, Drew (Gibbons, Scott, Atkins)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Setterfield, Schultz, Parker (Balta, Petruccelle)
$2,700 in the bank

I'm considering going
Heeney -> LDU (via Drew)
Hore -> D.Moore
Leaves me with $212,300

I feel there are a few rookies I have missed out on and the only way to get any is to downgrade someone. Just not 100% sold on trading Heeney and no clue what to do otherwise.
Thoughts?

    KeenButClueless · 04/04/2019 at 23:53

    I would suggest sitting on what you have. From a points perspective, bringing in Moore now would put say Scrimshaw on the bench. Maybe gain 10-15. Taking Heeney off and putting LDU on. Maybe lose 15-20. So from a points perspective small loss, with the odds probably against a points gain. Two trades now, but another two to go up to the premium you took out. So, I would suggest 4 trades. If a trade is worth 150k, do you think you will generate an extra 600k in cash?

    This assumes Heeney is a premium. I hear arguments for and against, but I am still in the yes camp. I also got the feeling from your post that you might too, but were sacrificing him for cash. Personally I wouldn’t

    Just my 2cents.

      Danners · 05/04/2019 at 12:03

      Nah I agree with what you say, think I might hold this week. Thanks

    Maverick_ · 04/04/2019 at 23:54

    Don’t trade heeney to LDU.. setterfield at F3 is far too thin maybe down to worpel if u need cash… I agree hore needs moving on maybe consider rozee to he has DPP and cheaper than Moore & will make you decent cash

Tommo09 · 04/04/2019 at 23:36

Scott or Butters on field?

    KSinny · 04/04/2019 at 23:51

    Butters the safer option

      Cliffy · 05/04/2019 at 00:51

      Butters

COREYSC · 05/04/2019 at 00:35

Gee I reckon I might just roll the dice on Macrae on Sunday 128 from Danger just isn’t enough for some reason I have a feeling Macrae could go huge 150+ and I know others have Fyfe as their skipper may just have to roll the dice to keep up with the chasing pack at rank: 3,804

NoLanguage96 · 05/04/2019 at 00:36

Ended up going Dusty to LDU and Greene to Constable. Kept Ridley as a backline loophole, Bombers fans surely the kid gets games over the coming weeks??

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 00:40

    I would've thought he'd get a game this week NL after their effort last week, even if he's out of favour or whatever, you'll be able to grab the next big thing coming through and still have money left.

      NoLanguage96 · 05/04/2019 at 00:46

      Yeah man I found it strange especially as he was nowhere near their worst in R1. The cash I've just made allows me to go Atkins to Fyfe next week anyway so I'm content with the trades. ST pain for LT gain!

        Dirk · 05/04/2019 at 17:52

        I was thinking similar.
        Dusty to LDU then Hore to Lloyd.
        Or just straight Dusty to McRae?

Sausage Roll · 05/04/2019 at 01:20

Greene -> Worpel or Rozee?

Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 09:13

Scrimshaw named in the hawks VFL side? He really must be 50/50 for Sunday. Glad I held off on hore – scrim

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 11:32

    Sheeesh Mav, don't do that … 🙂
    Thx GFC

      Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 11:44

      Hore can't even get named in a depleted demons backline lazz that is very concerning there is jake lever and may both to come back in so If scrimshaws named i think i'll have to pull the trigger. need the cash generating ASAP

        kinglear009 · 05/04/2019 at 12:43

        I've had to move him on – need as much js rookies as possible at this stage. Difficult enough when the dependable rookies start dropping in and out of teams!

        Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 13:30

        I traded him out last night for Typo… (DPP switch with Burgess)

    Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 11:48

    Scrim better play or I’m in trouble, Rids and whore on the pine😩

      Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 11:57

      I think he will hawk. All should be fine he’d be unlucky to be dropped he done nothing wrong v the dogs to lose his spot

        Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 12:08

        Agree there MAV, says he’s named on the bench, I thought Rids would of got a call up too?

TelescopicCox · 05/04/2019 at 10:21

I’ve got 3 concerns: Dusty, Mills and Greene. I’ve posted already and the consensus was to offload Mills and Greene. I’ve narrowed it to two options:

A) Dusty / Mills to Rocky / Whitfield
B) Mills / Greene to Whitfield / Moore

Holding Greene means lopping between parker, Petrucelle and Schultz for F5/F6

    TelescopicCox · 05/04/2019 at 10:22

    Or C:

    Dusty / Mills to Libba / Lloyd

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 10:41

      Love C

      Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 11:36

      Of the 3, I'd prefer Option C over A & B too.. Basically its trading under performing Premo and Mid-pricer for better premo & mid-pricer.
      Loop-hole Greene … you wont lose any coin on him and it gives you more options next week.

        TelescopicCox · 05/04/2019 at 11:50

        I’ve narrowed it to B or C.

        B lets me take another chance on Dusty as we know how good he is, but I’m worried about him playing forward even more with Caddy & Riewoldt missing

        C takes advantage of Lloyd who looks the number one defende (reminder of Doc a few years back), and Libba who could be the best mid pricer

GreendaleFC · 05/04/2019 at 10:43

So are all of Hawthorns ins for the week aside from Wingard. Considering Shiels and Burgoyne are out, Scrimshaw is most likely safe.

    Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 10:53

    okay that is good to know, thanks greendale.

Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 10:58

Got what I deserved sideways trading Heeney to Kelly.. Do we think he gets up for next week?

    HallyMate · 05/04/2019 at 11:02

    He will be fine, Chris Scott said he would have come back on if the game was closer.

      Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 11:28

      Cheers Hally

      Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 14:59

      Awesome Hally. I thought I had broke him after bringing him in

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 11:35

    Just a gentle reminder from the SuperCoach gods about the chances of injuries in the future, how we need to keep trades to deal with them.

      Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 11:48

      Spot on Derek

parko · 05/04/2019 at 11:02

is heeney to lloyd a smart trade
lock in the number 1 defender
isaac a questionable top 6 fwd

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 11:31

    Whether it is smart won't be revealed for some time … but it is safe.

      Jess · 05/04/2019 at 14:36

      Heeney will score 110 this week

        Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 16:03

        Might do, but Lloyd will score 120 … which is what I meant by 'safe'.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 12:03

Mangled Crow News:

The Doll is back big time.
Stewart is continuing to make a claim as a top 6 Defender.
Kelly is also continuing his claim as a must have in our Forward Line.

Stewart is averaging 25.3 disposals a game… 21.3 kicks a game!
He is like a bigger build Heath Shaw
Last year when he has had 17 kicks or more in a game he has toned up in every single one of them. Go check it on footywire

    kinglear009 · 05/04/2019 at 12:45

    I'd be a little scared. Right now, he's the Cats sole boot out of defence. They trust his placement and skill.

    The problem? Tuohy is their other great field kick. Injured now, which is why Stewart is getting such premium numbers. I think he divides the pie when he returns.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 12:58

      That is a fair call. Just astonished that he has gone 100+ in every game he has had 17+ kicks. If Tuohy's return means his current avg of 21 kicks a game falls to an avg of 15 kicks a game he will still ton up almost every 2 game I think.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 13:02

        Last year he had 281 kicks from 20 games, that's 14 kicks per game. That's without taking into account that 1 game he got injured in the 1st qtr of round 19.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2019 at 14:53

    Kelly must have F2 challenging for F1.

    Pure mid who just follows the ball.

    Over 100 last night in 3/4rds of footy.

    Jet.

      GO CATS!!!

Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 13:24

So do we take Danger VC score and loop Hore/Sweet, or hold out for Macrae to go big against GC?

    Jess · 05/04/2019 at 13:49

    Loop sweet..

      Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 14:00

      That’s my plan Jess. However he’s named on an extended bench so need to wait for final teams. Are you saying to take Dangers score?

        Jess · 05/04/2019 at 14:27

        Nar.that was a joke. Im feeling lucky so taking a gamble on Macrae or Fyfe for captain

          Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 15:25

          Yeah it’s still tempting. 128 still a solid VC score though. Think music will play for a few more hours on this one…

    The Ranger · 05/04/2019 at 14:36

    Gonna flip a coin between Macrae and Fyfe.

    Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 15:05

    My limit is 125 so I’m taking it.

      JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 15:17

      It pays to have a cut off point like you have Holty and sticking to it, takes all the emotion out of it, none of this will I or won't I take the VC score.

        Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 15:29

        correct John. I do see Fyfe and Macrae going big this week but what is big. 150 is a huge score but will only get you an extra 20 points. Just don’t think it’s worth the risk.

          JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 15:50

          Yes if I didn't have a cut off point I would be putting the C on Fyfe, but it has served me well and takes the guessing out of it.

        Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 15:30

        Hey JohnD. My limit was 130 so it’s a line ball decision. If Sweets not named, I have more time to decide.

          JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 15:46

          Hi Rivo, if your cut off is 130 then you shouldn't take it, you need to stick to it, if you are having doubts then you should lower it, that's why I made mine 125 two years ago, no temptation to not go with it.

            Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 17:55

            Looks like Sweet not playing. Going with the Danger VC loop.

              Jess · 05/04/2019 at 18:39

              Macrae could easily score 160. Cant see him going less than 115, so its worth it imo

    Saritz · 05/04/2019 at 19:27

    Ask yourself, what is the lowest score you think Macrae will score? my guess is 110 absolute minimum he scores (barring injury). So absolute worse case, you score 18 points overall less going with Macrae. Its a no brainer… take the risk

TheBenchmark25 · 05/04/2019 at 13:25

What to do with hore?
No trades used yet
My only options are hore to burgess because I only have 7k in the kitty
Or double trade so heeney to say Worpel even no it’s not the best trade and then hore to Moore
Have every other rookie that I need

    TheBenchmark25 · 05/04/2019 at 13:38

    Heeney to worpel
    Hore to rozee

Murray · 05/04/2019 at 14:00

Pretty sure I need to trade Martin out, but who is best pick for around that price, i.e under 564k
thinking my best move might be trading in Whitfiled via Duursma swing

good move?

    Rivo · 05/04/2019 at 15:32

    Sideways trading is risky at round 2. I could be horribly wrong but think Dusty might pull his finger out and score over 100 tonight. I’m holding.

    yoo · 05/04/2019 at 15:34

    tom rockliff.

      Murray · 05/04/2019 at 15:42

      the community is so divided over rockliff

        Jess · 05/04/2019 at 18:38

        We dont know who you've already got

Swans2012 · 05/04/2019 at 14:02

I was all set to ignore lycett and hold English and see what happens with mummy/Zac Clarke/reilly O’Brien as downgrade options for him over the next fortnight, but I’m having second thoughts, anyone have any info on whether we’ll see lycett regularly taking more of the ruck pie than Ryder (like we did last week)?

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 14:21

    I have pondered this all preseason. As a Lycett owner last year I watched him a lot last year. I did ok as second ruck to Nic Nat, but when he got us chance to be #1 he did great.

    He was coming off an ACL last year and the big blokes take a bit longer to hit their straps

    I was going to select him at my risky R2 but only if Ryder was injured or I was sure he would be #1 ruck.

    After last week, I had Mundy to Lycett as my trade, but decided against it on the grounds I’m not sure if he is top 8 forward. I did think about the benefits of his Ruck back up and that is very important. This was the countered by the Hoff having a poor score and the likelihood of his price dropping to under $500k if he had another poor one. Hoff gets it ahead of Lycett for me.

    It seems that Lycett should be cheaper than he is.

    Port have good bye

      Swans2012 · 05/04/2019 at 14:42

      Agree Derek I think at this stage the risk outweighs the gain…..just…although my situation is different than yours as lycett is a chance of being top 10 forward whereas English was always eventually trade fodder (so its an upgrade of sorts rather than a sideways)…. anyway I think I’ll hold with the thought of seeing how the Mumford/Clarke/obriens of the world fare

      Oh and I’d be cautious of the hoff with minimal ruck minutes….

        Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:14

        TBC said he was going to get Physical with Gawn tonight.

        gawny might not like that and sort TBC out. Clarke becomes the #1 ruck

      Twilightingale · 05/04/2019 at 15:42

      Keeping an eye on both Lycett and Hoff to trade one of them in after the rnd 12 bye. Will cover 1 off Grundy/Gawn for round 13 and rest of season

      Can't see them averaging enough to be a top 6 forward or average enough that you'd want them on field week in week out, but both have shown they have a high ceiling and perfect to provide bench cover with a non playing dpp ruck.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2019 at 14:55

    I did read somewhere that lycett will be the main ruck this year with the plan to play ryder forward and just use in ruck as a chop out when lycett needs a breather if that helps?

      Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:11

      i think that will be the case

      will Lycett average enough to be a top 8 forward? maybe not, but he won't be far behind. and the few points difference might just pay for itself if he has to swing into the rucks for a week or two and save a trade.

      i would still expect Hoff to average better than Lycett, more time to look at them could change that thought. But if i can wait a few weeks and get hoff for not much more than what Lycett is now, i'd do that, plus it buys some time. and i've already traded Mundy to Sloane.

Steve · 05/04/2019 at 14:46

Any thoughts on Oliver or Brayshaw on Captain tonight,gut feeling their going to score huge?

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 16:02

    Good C POD Steve … the bombers don't have a tagger of note, or a tap ruckman of Gawn's class … Oliver could get off the chain tonight… actually both of them could…. Bombers could use McKenna or DSmith as a lock down I guess ….though if I wanted to use Oliver as a POD I'd have VC'd him into Macrae or Fyfe if you have them..

      DEE · 05/04/2019 at 16:15

      Oliver

RoyWetard · 05/04/2019 at 15:02

I'd like to take Danger's score but I've got a cap-tain on my miiiiiiiiiind.

Cliffy · 05/04/2019 at 15:24

I’m sure he could get back later in the season, but might be too long for me to wait for Hore.

Option A) Hore – Scrimshaw
Option B) Hore – Wilkie
Option C) Hold the trade, he’ll get back in sometime

I’ve already got the other important rookies in defense pretty much with Duursma, Clark and Collins just to mention also.

Cheers guys

    LeDoctor · 05/04/2019 at 16:27

    Hore to Scrimshaw if Scrimshaw is going to be on field in place of a donut or shaky looking rookie. I'm holding Hore, will upgrade in 1-2 rounds when someone with good JS and SP comes along or will keep for longer if he plays before then.

      kinglear009 · 05/04/2019 at 16:32

      Don't mind option A.

parko · 05/04/2019 at 15:32

Hore to:
A) Scrimshaw
B) Pettrucele
C) Wilkie

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 15:41

    A)

Stu · 05/04/2019 at 15:51

Help needed PLEASE!
What should I do? Improve team now or improve rookie selections to generate cash?
Which two trades out of…
1. Hore to Duursma (Pretty keen on this one)
2. Burgess to Parker
3. Dusty to Rocky
4. Dusty to Fyfe
5. Dunkley to Boak
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 15:53

    The top two.

    KSinny · 05/04/2019 at 15:53

    Hore to Duursma for sure

    Sharkmove_King · 05/04/2019 at 16:03

    1&4

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 16:07

    1 definitely … or Hore to Parker and move Burgess back.
    Of the others … if I had to pick one … 4.

    LeDoctor · 05/04/2019 at 16:34

    Hore to Duursma definitely, don't go Burgess to Parker. Burgess will be an okay rookie, Parker will be a good rookie, but his scores are against two of the worst teams as a (half) forward, I don't see his average staying up there at all, not worth the trade.

    Dusty to Fyfe is a good trade, no point risking having Rocky if you can afford Fyfe. Dunkley deserves a couple more chances, hold him for now.

    yoo · 05/04/2019 at 18:32

    1 and 3

    Dermin8r · 05/04/2019 at 21:16

    Hore to Duursma and Dusty to Neale if you don't already have him

Sarah · 05/04/2019 at 15:59

Is it worth burning 72k to go Hore to Rozee, or is Wilkie / Petruccelle a better option?

Thanks all

    DEE · 05/04/2019 at 16:13

    I traded out Hore for LDU….

dontblushbaby · 05/04/2019 at 16:14

When will teams be finalised for Sunday games ? I thought I was by COB on Fridays ?
I need to see if Schultz gets named for Freo as this will determine my VC & C for the loophole ,I like Macrae into Lyfe atm but he is named I will go Gawn into Macrae

Hore OUT LDU IN

COREYSC · 05/04/2019 at 16:17

Agreed I think Atkins spot is very safe with S.Selwood still a while away

Deandre12 · 05/04/2019 at 16:39

Hey fellas, just curious about my current defense rookies. I have Scrimshaw, Collins, Duursma, Hore and Clark. Is it worth trading Hore to a playing rookie? Can switch him forward with Burgess too, for a forward rookie. Is it worth 2 trades?? Because I currently only have $3,400, so I can’t necessarily trade him for a straight playing rookie? Would love some advice.

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:01

    nope. not worth two trades. if there was a straight like for like swap no problem.

    hold him for now to see if he gets another game (he might be the Godard of this year) or another rookie comes along on the bubble.

    you never know, the $102k def/mid player from melbourne might get more games, Lockhart

      Deandre12 · 05/04/2019 at 18:02

      Cheers Derek, appreciate the advice. Was going with holding anyways. The price for (especially deafness ) rookies are definitely over priced this year, and I don’t think it’s worth going to a high cost rookie I.e Rozee. At the end of the day a rookie is a rookie. They will be traded in for cash or an upgrade.

Great fact hunt · 05/04/2019 at 16:53

Ridley to Parker
Mundy to Fyffe
2 correction trades only required..
Thought please

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 16:56

    i've seen enough of Fyfe to know he is good at football and i should have tried abit harder to have him in my team at the start of the season.

    Ridley not playing is a no brainer to trade him out

      Dirk · 05/04/2019 at 17:28

      With Derek.
      Both make sense. Pull the trigger!

      Derek · 05/04/2019 at 18:48

      oh well

    Saritz · 05/04/2019 at 19:22

    Ridley named… a late in

Chris · 05/04/2019 at 16:55

What to do with Greene, swap to worpel or downgrade to say rozee and which will leave me over 300k in bank, or use Greene for loophole to grab Dangerfields score 🤔

    Jess · 05/04/2019 at 18:35

    Go to worpel

Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:19

not an ACL for Seedsman. great news

Dirk · 05/04/2019 at 17:27

Dusty to McRae in a single trade? Or hold.
Had 135k left in kitty from start.
Team name – The Goonies

    KSinny · 05/04/2019 at 17:52

    Trade

      Dirk · 05/04/2019 at 17:55

      Other option is
      Dusty – LDU
      Hore – Lloyd

      Get a cashcow and get still get premo this way.
      Then Look to get McRae when / if he drops a bit in price

        Dirk · 05/04/2019 at 17:58

        Just seen I can do Dusty to McRae and Hore to Wilkie.
        Job security is average at best though

    Danners · 05/04/2019 at 18:43

    I wouldn't be spending extra money to get rid of Dusty, either downgrade or get rid for a premo around the similar price or have faith in him

Benjiherb · 05/04/2019 at 17:28

Anyone else had 3 players out by round 2 . Myself
Jacobs,Steven,doodee wonder who it's going to be this week . I r

TommyC99 · 05/04/2019 at 17:43

Im surprised with the amount of people who are actually taking dangers score. Immediately after the game last night i decided not to take it with Macrae waiting in the wings with the C, but a few doubts are creeping in about playing it safe and taking it. I've got until Bines plays tomorrow night to decide. Whats everyone else doing?

    KSinny · 05/04/2019 at 17:52

    Taking Danger, even if Macrae scores 140 (which youd take every dat if the week) That's still only and extra 1w points over danger. But if for some reason he only gets 80-90 your losing 40-50 points. Not worth the risk I don't think.

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:53

    If you set your cut off fairly high, you will average fairly high by year end. you'll win some you will lose some, but the average will be better the higher you set it. I havn't a lot of data on this though just my own numbers from last year. last year i tried to stick with 139 VC score. My average C score for all last year was 131.

    i've already reduced it this year to 137 because i took grundy last week.

Derek · 05/04/2019 at 17:48

i know there isn't much in it. But take Clark's 65 or put Parker on field (or Burgess or Petruccelle)?

    RoyWetard · 05/04/2019 at 17:55

    take the 65.

    SC_Donkey · 05/04/2019 at 19:14

    I'm taking the 65, I have no other choice can't trust Burgess and Wilke to do better, now I have to field either one of those two, but who.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:47

    I think Parker can beat that Derek, but it's probably safer to take the 65.

TommyC99 · 05/04/2019 at 17:54

Neale is looking the goods at this stage

Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 18:00

Neale would be one of the 3 I’d guess… the other two a lottery…

neil demons delight · 05/04/2019 at 18:03

Macrae Fyfe Neale Bont Cripps Oliver MCrouch and Sloan appear the best mids but is BCrouch next and a chance for M8 i think so

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 18:19

    My reply lost its father…. hello step dad..

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2019 at 18:21

    Loving the crouching 1 and 2 at the mo

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/04/2019 at 18:23

    Too early to call

    Bbqs, kelly. Cogs heaps in there.

    Have a better idea in a few weeks

    Saritz · 05/04/2019 at 19:33

    Cogs is top 8 IMO. Sloane? Wait for the taggers to start on him!! Bont is hot and cold. BCrouch and Fyfe have too much durability risk. I think Treloar and Brayshaw will post big numbers the year too. But overall way too early to confirm these as the best mids… its two rounds into a long and challenging season

Yeahnah · 05/04/2019 at 18:04

Hore to Wilkie or hold? Thoughts? Tempted to hold and wait for a better rookie

Mark · 05/04/2019 at 18:05

should I trade hore to scrimshaw now that I have sweet to loophole dangers score?

    Lazza · 05/04/2019 at 18:06

    Yes

    Danners · 05/04/2019 at 18:41

    Need to get you're rookies straight so yes

      Mark · 05/04/2019 at 19:33

      thanks

Defying_Madness · 05/04/2019 at 18:11

Having such a tough time deciding whether to go Greene to Moore

Yeahnah · 05/04/2019 at 18:25

Ridley late in for the Bombers

Corn · 05/04/2019 at 18:48

Why no love for Cousins compared to LDU?

    Saritz · 05/04/2019 at 19:21

    Couldn't agree more!! Cousins will average more and has better job security

      Dermin8r · 05/04/2019 at 21:17

      Agreed absolutely! for the price point, and potential and job security Cousins over Walsh or LDU

    WhyAsk? · 05/04/2019 at 22:02

    Because he costs more and is averaging 17pts p/game less. No brainer really.

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:06

      I’m a Hawk and he’s just not a scorer, plays his role well, but not sc relevant in my my mind,

Doc_1 · 05/04/2019 at 18:49

Need help bringing in Parker community.

Balta to Parker (M6). Means Setterfield at M7/ Petracele M8
or
Hore to Parker via Darcy Moore swing set.
– means Parker/Setterfield/Drew on ground (balta/petracele bench)
– one of scrimshaw or Dursma on the pine.

Leaning towards the straight swap with balta.
Thoughts?

GreendaleFC · 05/04/2019 at 18:53

RIDLEY IS A LATE IN! He better not do well cos I've already traded him out.

Nozzy · 05/04/2019 at 18:59

Hore out for Rozee or Moore?

    GreendaleFC · 05/04/2019 at 19:02

    Moore for me

    Dan · 05/04/2019 at 22:57

    I traded him to Moore.

NoLanguage96 · 05/04/2019 at 19:03

Ridley a late in for the Bombers for anyone that kept him! Myself included 🙂

Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:14

Hey guys, has anyone heard any updates regarding Tim Kelly's ankle?

John · 05/04/2019 at 19:22

Ridey playing

So do I play Ridley, Scrimshaw or Duursma on the field?

Defying_Madness · 05/04/2019 at 19:33

Greene to Moore and Hore to Rozee or hold?

    mmmmmmm · 05/04/2019 at 19:37

    Moore and hold

    Defying_Madness · 06/04/2019 at 20:09

    welp decided to hold on both

      _Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 20:11

      Moore limped off. May have dodged a bullet

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 20:22

      Hore to Rozee would have been a good trade if you could have afforded it.

Frankie · 05/04/2019 at 19:41

Taking Clark’s score, who to bench scrimshaw, duursma or Collins, thoughts?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:45

    I'm benching Collins, good last week, but not the week before.

hedski · 05/04/2019 at 19:46

You just know there is going to be some coaches out there that have Ridley as captain on field to loophole Clarks score and Dangers VC.
They are going to check they're team out later tonight or tomorrow and get a suprise, and not a pleasant one like when Newman went gangbusters and knocked out that 150 odd a couple of years back.
Poor bastards.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:49

    Omg…what a disaster that'd be and if he only gets 50 or so…oops

      Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:50

      dammit no opponents had ridley loopholed in my ten leagues haha

        Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 19:53

        Hehe…funny that you checked Mav 🙂

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 21:13

    I have had that happen. A C on a rookie who plays

Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 19:47

Go Gawn. That is it.

Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 20:10

a good feel about this game early. dons looking to move the ball fast
what is wrong with melbourne this year?
pre season injuries? Missing hogan? two key defenders missing?

    Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 20:29

    Nank the Tank

      Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 21:24

      Celebrating the 10 year anniversary you think hawk haha

        Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:31

        I was Hahahaha,, they looked terrible but have turned it around, not a bad game,

          Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:31

          If the umps would stay out of it?

    kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 13:04

    For two years we've known our issue: our defence. So we hired Lever…who got injured, and May….who is currently injured.

    Our midfield doesn't have the same run through the center – outside players seem slow after a shaky preseason,

    Forward line doesn't have the right mix of pressure and leading offensive targets.

    Still, Gawn, Clayton and Brayshaw are gods – but our coaching stocks desperately need enrichment. I'm confident we'll find form, but too late? Maybe. Next week looms large.

Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 20:10

Anybody having problems with the site on their laptops? It’s fine in my phone but not my laptop

    Maverick_ · 05/04/2019 at 20:13

    na i'm all good now hawk.
    this morning though about 10am my phone wouldn't work but laptop was fine.
    Patch or Lek i think it was did say the other day the website would be down for upgrades at some point maybe it's different for everyone?

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 20:20

      Yeah weird, Cheers Mav

Shake_n_bake · 05/04/2019 at 20:17

Wow we these free kicks getting payed is turning me right off!

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 20:38

    Yeah it's a bit ridiculous, they're proper whistle happy tonight

      Shake_n_bake · 05/04/2019 at 21:07

      Just not there Russty!

    Truthsayer · 05/04/2019 at 21:11

    It's almost as if they're trying to give the bombers an advantage? Bombers getting paid frees for nothing Dees players not getting obvious frees and 50's

Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 20:24

Melbourne doing 2009 again??

    Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:08

    Must of read my comment 🥴🤣

Benjiherb · 05/04/2019 at 20:41

Is Merrett playing tonight ?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 20:51

    Yep, he's sitting on 47 points, not bad.

      Shake_n_bake · 05/04/2019 at 21:06

      How the **** is Sheil on 47 Merrett on 61 🤦‍♂️

      Truthsayer · 05/04/2019 at 21:08

      Softest/easiest 60 points ever awarded in Supercoach virtually no impact on the game except for being almost singlehandedly responsible for the Dees comeback! CD shouldn't let bombers fans do the stats on Bombers games. Bizarre that sheila is the only bomber keeping them in it but his SC is poor. I reckon a few of his possessions have been credited to Merrett no way he's had 9 kicks @75%

        Derek · 05/04/2019 at 21:12

        As a merret owner, I would agree.

        Done very little.

        He went from 24 to 42 when he got a thump in the head and got a free kick deep in defence. His kick got market and given a 50m. Merry get 18pts for it.

        I’m not complaining, but……

        Shake_n_bake · 05/04/2019 at 21:17

        Im still in disbelief 🤨

          Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:16

          You do know sheil was absolutely horrible with his kicking right?

Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 20:57

Anyone vc or c Gawn,?? Damn!!! 71 before the half,

    Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 21:04

    No but anyone who has him would be very happy right now.

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:07

      I have him Holty but no vc or c, 81 at the half, massive score coming up!!!

        Derek · 05/04/2019 at 21:09

        He had 10 mins where he went from 40 to 81 just before half time. Gun

          Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:11

          Yeah it was a quick rise hey Derek?

    Swans2012 · 05/04/2019 at 21:13

    Captain, only because i didn’t realize I don’t have a loop for danger lol, 🤞 he keeps it up, will hopefully make up for butters instead of Constable on field…

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:14

      Well done Swans, mistake or no option. Doesn’t matter, going to go large

        Swans2012 · 05/04/2019 at 21:18

        Yep, after I realised I couldn’t loop danger he felt like my most bombproof option, can’t see him going worse than he did round one all season…and somehow he managed 90 odd then…

          Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:33

          Yep, good call, we’ll done once again mate, should get at least 130

          Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:56

          Sorry swan, think I jinxed him, did nothing that qtr, 12 points???

            Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:29

            Got it back for ya Swan🤘

              Swans2012 · 06/04/2019 at 10:22

              Thanks bud! Happy he got to a respectable level! I reckon it’s going to be a tough year for Gawn, he’ll still average 115 or so but at the end of the day, he’s one man rucking a whole game against 2 blokes rucking half a game, he’s going to tire towards the end….

Yeahnah · 05/04/2019 at 21:05

Brayshaw only 62% TOG at half time and still has 17 touches.

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 21:07

    Why do low? Is he usually low TOG

      Yeahnah · 05/04/2019 at 21:51

      Not too sure Derek, had roughly 80% past two games

SC_Donkey · 05/04/2019 at 21:13

Just my luck had Wagner (47 at haf-time) on field and opted to bench him over Scott an hour before the game. What are the chances Scott spuds it again this week.

Truthsayer · 05/04/2019 at 21:16

LOL Ridley on more SC at half time than Nathan Jones! Obviously SC scores are no indication of the actual impact a player has on the game + how the hell is Ridley at 100% DE? One of his kicks was a turnover and one handball went to the wide open spaces.
Maybe the secret to winning supercoach is having bombers players

Swans2012 · 05/04/2019 at 21:24

On a completely different note, St Kildas Bruce has been playing r2 for them and nearly tonned up last 2 weeks, kicked a couple in each but also had 3-4 FA in each, feels like he might finally live up to potential? No takers at 250k or so? I’m tempted….

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:12

    Could be an outside smokey Swans, Saints fwd line looking a little better this year and Bruce looks confident.
    Who would you be offloading for him?

      Swans2012 · 06/04/2019 at 08:18

      Have some cash so could upgrade a rookie, it’d get Setterfield off the field, but it’d be a playing rookie I’d be upgrading so feels a little wasteful, reckon I’ll hold for now and keep my trades but just got a feeling about him this year….

    WTFoxtrot_58 · 05/04/2019 at 22:42

    I have Toby Greene and have been considering this one.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 21:45

What is wrong with Melbourne?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 21:46

    Not looking good for them is it?…I think they're in trouble this year.

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:50

      Like MAV said, 2009 reunion hahaha

    JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 21:54

    Good that things are going back to normal and we won't have to worry about the finals this year.

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 21:56

      What's up with T-Mac this year John?, I know he copped a whack earlier but he doesn't look right this year.

        Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:58

        I was thinking the same Rus, I had him last year and was great, nearly went him again this year but he was injured so said no, must have a niggle?

          Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:01

          Yeah I reckon so Hawk, he's hardly getting near it and when he does, doesn't do much.

            Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:08

            Yes mate, something not right with him, shame, when’s he’s on and fit he is great

        JohnDJ59 · 05/04/2019 at 22:11

        Weiderman seems to be doing his job.

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 21:57

    Forward line doesn’t exist. Need someone like a Hogan

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:59

      You mean Chewy

    Mr_Pink_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:47

    A bit big and slow the Demons… much like the Swans… not sure the new 6-6-6 suits these teams that lack that balance of inside clearance players with the outside pacey ones

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:57

      I think their fwd line's the problem Mr Pink…T-Mac way out of sorts, Petracca still not living up to the potential, not enough decent crumbers in there taking their opportunities.

        Mr_Pink_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:08

        True Russty… they're very average forward of centre… maybe they could think about putting Fristch back to a wing-half forward… he has been great down back but they miss his flair up forward… also miss Hannan/Vandenberg type guys at least working hard to provide some run and contest… not sure whether T-Mac will ever be the answer as their no. 1 big guy… he played better as a 2nd or 3rd tall forward… but yeah definitely not fit

          Great fact hunt · 06/04/2019 at 07:52

          Missed their spring skiing Last year mr pink

    Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:03

    If you listen to the radio commentary it's a lot easier to understand why they were getting flogged. Juddy was saying Melbourne defence was so commited to playing a zone that they would often leave players unmarked.

      JEL · 06/04/2019 at 10:24

      Yep, it was also mentioned on the TV. Players focused on their zone, not on what is happening around them.

Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 21:53

How good is Clarke’s disposal?? Superstar

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 21:57

    He looks like the Iron Giant out there, so slow…lol

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:08

      Has not hit one target, by foot or hand, spud

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:10

      Has not hit one target by hand or foot, spud

Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 22:01

12 point quarter by Gawn.🙄

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:07

    Maybe he still gets to 130 Holty, hope Clarry can lift a bit too.

Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:17

Umpiring is disgraceful in this last qtr, they need to be dropped like players are

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:26

    I reckon they will be, and who needs to hear everything they bloody say?…rip the mics off them I say.
    Way too nitpicking tonight, ruins the game when it's stopping every 2 minutes.

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 22:47

      Exactly, they seem to be making the game more about them then the actual game more then ever, they are going to kill it like the footy show, change rules every year, just leave it the f¥€k alone already!!!!

    IsourGameRigged? · 05/04/2019 at 23:04

    Sadly they were better in the last than they were in the preceding 3quaters

      Hawk131415 · 05/04/2019 at 23:56

      True, and your tag name suggest what I think, rigged as F @&k

GoodQuestion · 05/04/2019 at 22:25

Genuine question.
At least 3 times Melbourne have tried to take advantage after a free kick, each time getting a clear possession in forward 50 or well forward of centre but each time the "advantage" has been revoked by the umpire. Why?

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:33

    Something about it being paid by the Umpire who wasn't closest to the ball. They said it earlier in the game.

      CuriousGeorge · 05/04/2019 at 23:00

      LOL and here's me thinking it was because essendon didn't have enough players back to prevent a melbourne goal.
      Does that mean that the umpire who missed the free, that was so obvious a bloke 30 metres away could call it, is a cheat? Or is it just "better for the game" when certain teams win?

        Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:06

        Not sure there George haha, bloody silly rule though if it is a rule, should always be the closest Umpire making the call, or maybe they were too busy adjusting their microphones from going up their asses….LOL

      TommyC99 · 05/04/2019 at 23:07

      Yeah any free kick paid by an "out of zone" umpire is not allowed to be paid advantage

Hesoverrated · 05/04/2019 at 22:26

LOL Merrett 24 possessions 40 metres gained

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 22:40

    Merrett was BOG in the last quarter. Had a huge finish. Heppell did the job in 3rd.

    Oliver went missing in last quarter. Could get his hands on it and gave away 2 frees

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:42

      I'm sure you don't mind how he got his points Derek 🙂

        KeenButClueless · 05/04/2019 at 22:49

        Agreed. A little bit of redemption for Derek. He took a lot of stick on his Merrett selection. Glad it’s working out a bit better for you. Now, if only Dusty can come good….

          Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:51

          Merrett could be a good pod this year Keen, only in 4% of teams, many teams looking a bit same same in my leagues, some guys only have 8 players or less different.

            Derek · 05/04/2019 at 23:27

            Cheers. Got him in my draft league pretty late as well.

            Come on Dusty.

      RealityCheck · 05/04/2019 at 23:03

      Maybe in Supercoach mate but in actual footy he wasn't even 25% as good as Brayshaw. If Cripps got the free points from CD that Merrett gets he'd score 300 every week

        Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:35

        So you're saying I should swap Brayshaw to Merrett, because he's a Champion Data favourite and Brayshaw isn't?
        Not really fair and I tend to agree with him being better than Merrett tonight but, Brayshaw did seem hard done by tonight, did plenty enough to score 120+

ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 22:40

What a mystery Zerrett's pts are.

    Steeeve · 05/04/2019 at 22:58

    Had a couple of big important tackles.
    Almost took that mark deep in defence when Melbourne sent one across the goal face that would have gotten him another 10 points but not to be.

      Derek · 05/04/2019 at 23:25

      He had 3 or 4 handballs that set up goals in last quarter.

      Thought his 61 in first half was a bit light. But second half he was terrific

Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 22:41

CD gave Brayshaw 3 points for that mark and goal 🤔

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:46

    Yeah Mac I checked, they were about 75 points short of the 3300 allocation so they hand points out for nothing to some and take away from others in the last few minutes of every game…or just after.
    Last week they handed out 1 to 3 points to almost every player from both teams…at the end of the game.

      Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 22:48

      Cheers Rusty, that makes a bit more sense now. It’s a shame though, Brayshaw arguably best on. Robbery!

        Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:53

        Yeah I hear ya mate, he should've been 120+ with what he did tonight.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 22:55

      LMFAO! Merrett gets +3 Brayshaw +1

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 22:46

    Disgusting seeing a few of the Essendon boys out score Brayshaw. And I don't even have him and I'm saying this.

      Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 22:54

      He didn't even get rewarded properly for that last mark and goal either Dave….should've gone up by about 10 points.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 23:00

        Should have been
        Zerrett 110 Brayshaw 122
        Not
        Zerrett 120 Brayshaw 108

    Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:06

    If it's irrelevant to the game it's irrelevant to the scoring. Orazio only went up 3 aswell

Yeahnah · 05/04/2019 at 22:44

brayshaw ROBBED

    Mystic_Mac · 05/04/2019 at 22:44

    Couldn’t agree more!

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 05/04/2019 at 22:52

      When you compare him to Zerrett it's a joke

      Brayshaw +8 marks +8 Inside 50's +1 Centre Cleance and a goal.
      Merrett +5 tackles + 2 Frees For

    Mr_Pink_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:10

    Darcy Parish outpointing him is questionable at best… much like some of that 'umpiring' i was watching tonight

Steeeve · 05/04/2019 at 22:57

Merrett didn't have a great game but I'm glad I held him. Nice bounce back from a terrible round one score. Thanks to those who talked me out of trading.

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 23:23

    I thought he was BOG in the last quarter

      Steeeve · 05/04/2019 at 23:30

      His composure when he chased down the kick on the near wing and delivered it forward was very impressive

Pranav · 05/04/2019 at 23:02

Thoughts on lockhart as a trade in option next week? Don’t like the scoring potential but he has the job security and is at bargain basement price of 102.4k

    Derek · 05/04/2019 at 23:22

    Hore to Lockhart

    The DPP is great

    The $102k is great

    Get him in if named next week

      Pranav · 05/04/2019 at 23:31

      yep thats the plan decided to hold hore this week because didnt want to use 2 trades to get rid of him

TBone_9 · 05/04/2019 at 23:08

Umpiring is an absolute joke. Yes we didn’t look very good, but at least be fair when you are in charge of the decisions in a game. Not liking how slow and out of shape we looked tonight. Plenty of room for improvement though. Go Dees!

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:10

    They'll bounce back T-Bone, not too far away from a win tonight, maybe if the Umpires weren't auditioning for a part in Home and away.

      TBone_9 · 05/04/2019 at 23:32

      Yeah I reckon we are getting on track mate. With some decent umpiring I think we just about get home in that one. Some better field kicking would be nice too haha

        Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:37

        Yeah, T-Mac needs to start watching the Footy too and not watching movies on netflix on his phone when the ball's on it's way in there. 🙂

    StartingtoStinkAFL · 05/04/2019 at 23:12

    You would have won if the umpiring was fair and equitable. Maybe by 3 goals or more

    Ja191 · 05/04/2019 at 23:34

    I’m confident that number 6 umpire had money on Essendon

    Connor · 06/04/2019 at 00:27

    Club is clearly lacking culture though! Watched Neville Jetta get absolutely crunched in the second quarter and not one demons player came over to pick him up or give him a high-five for a big effort

    Blueth · 06/04/2019 at 01:25

    I'm an Essendon fan and the umpiring was a joke tonight.
    dunno if we still would've won or not, but dont really care cos the game was pretty much ruined

    UpBeat · 06/04/2019 at 08:31

    Melbourne are an average team at best that played above themselves last year and now without Hogan they have lost a target up forward. The umps are adjudicators of the AFL rules so blame the rules committee.

WTF_howsThisWork · 05/04/2019 at 23:08

I thought lockhart played a better game than Merrett, he certainly had more impact on the score and won bigger contests more often than Merrett did.
Does champion data award points according to twitter popularity or something equally as non footy related because merrett deserved 70 at most.

    Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:14

    Look at his Stats, 14 contested, 85% de, 7 tackles, 3 frees for. 7 intercept possession too, and he was huge when it was a close game.
    70 at most? What a joke

      Derek · 06/04/2019 at 12:18

      He did all that under a close tag most of the first half and last quarter.

      He was close to BOG for me. I was cheering for Dees.

      WhatDidUwatch? · 06/04/2019 at 13:43

      If you look at the game mate your 'close tag' line is a joke nobody was near him at every ball up because he was hanging out the back like a seagull. His impact was rubbish apart from 1 tackle in the first quarter. Lockhart did win bigger/harder contests and had more impact than Merrett so if you look at his score and game compared to merretts 70 would be generous

TommyC99 · 05/04/2019 at 23:12

Liked the look of wagner from the dees. Faded in the second half but with his effort in the first half you'd think he'd keep his spot. 123k on the bubble next week

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:14

    The Wagner Brothers could be the future Crouch brothers in the next few years.

Holty01 · 05/04/2019 at 23:38

That umpiring tonight had some of the softest decisions I’ve ever seen in a game of football. Yes they make mistakes which I can understand but by the end of the game they had made so many that I actually believe that this is what the AFL is directing them to do. Lockett and Dunstall would of kicked 2000 goals each if they were paying the free kicks tonight back then.

    Russty_ · 05/04/2019 at 23:43

    Just the sheer number of Whistles blown in the first quarter was unbelievable Holty!…let em get on with the game FFS.
    And the bloody talking from the skinny flogs, I seriously think there'll be a backlash tomorrow against those guys and they'll either be dropped, disciplined or re-educated.
    The rule changes are supposed to promote a more free flowing game, those guys did the opposite tonight, just seemed determined to hold things up, and were way too strict too early.

Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 00:02

AFL is a massive joke atm, and is in danger of loosing a lot of fans, me for one, in 46 years I’ve never seen this garbage , where the umpire is more in vogue than the players, this game is getting ruined!!! It’s not what I grew up watching or how I played the game, it’s going to become touch football very soon and because of f soft players like Danger and Jenkins who want to play less, for more money, and less physicality ! Go play lawn bowls if you can’t be a man!!!!

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 00:37

    Mate, I'm surprised to learn you're not as young as I thought, hahah, no offence, but I don't think Danger's soft, he's one of the hardest charging Bulls in the game, maybe he's just trying to secure a more lucrative future for the players who put everything on the line every week and can, a lot of the time end up with nothing to see them through to their retirement years, compare it to American Sports….those mofos make a ton more money than any Aussie players of anything. (20-30-40 million bucks a season). Tiger Woods did the same thing for Golf back in the 90's, he demanded more match payments for players and now the weekly PGA Tournament winner wins about 1.1 million dollars…before that, it was about ten times less. Tennis players also command huge salaries, are they any better than our top notch AFL Players?
    The AFL makes a bunch more money from merchandising, ticket sales, and media contracts than the players do every season, it's not actually fair and the players who dedicate their lives and their bodies to performing at the highest level every week, deserve more.
    Look how much these Soccer playing diving flogs make a year?….Golfers, Tennis Players etc…AFL should pay a lot more to it's players…period.
    One significant injury and it can be all over for any player at any time, regardless of if they've saved enough money to keep them going forward.
    If more money was available to the players of the game, then maybe there wouldn't be so many mediocre players in the game.
    They have to give up everything in their normal lives to do what they do too…..they should be amply rewarded for it.
    By the way, I believe the season is way too long and should only be 18 rounds, each team plays each-other once, and then finals.

      Great fact hunt · 06/04/2019 at 08:11

      Spot on rusty to the last comment. The season should go for 34 weeks plus finals as I need my footy fix for longer.

    Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 16:40

    Each team should play each other twice, once on each other’s ground, then finals, you can’t get any fairer than that, they make millions and do t want to work for it??? Come on!!

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 17:48

      So Hawk, the Season should run for 36 weeks plus Finals…40 weeks?…that'll never happen mate, there'd be no one left to play, they'd all be injured or too exhausted, it ain't Major League Baseball where they're standing or sitting around most of the time. Even those guys are on 10 to 50 million dollar contracts.
      AFL Players don't make millions, only a select few might be on a million a year, a lot of guys are only on a couple of hundred thousand to 500,000 bucks a season.
      AFL is the hardest game on the body and head in the world, even those big fat yanks who play NFL are on 10 to 50 times more money and they're all wearing body armour every week.

        Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 17:49

        Well we’ll agree to disagree Rusty?? It’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it?

          Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 18:22

          Of course you are Hawk, I'm not dissing you mate….in the WSL, the Women's pay for contests has just matched the Men's, I see that as real progress.
          I just feel that for the effort and risk that AFL players put in every week for 6 months every year, they should be paid a lot more.
          It's the fat cats in the AFL who are getting the Lion's share of the profits…not the players.

            Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 18:33

            I understand that but what if I only worked 6 months a year, do I still get the same money? Nope? I’d get the sack, it’s a job, and they get paid handsomely for it, I put my life on the line most days at work, blokes played harder in the “good old days” and they smashed each other and then went to work during the week, it’s getting way too soft for more money, they sound like teachers, we want more days off but want more money too, it’s a joke!!!

        kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 22:32

        I like a lot of this. Even this year, we've seen a lot of injuries from players pushing their bodies to breaking point – doubling the workload would crush them. Also, I shudder to think of the attrocious skill errors we'd see by seasons end

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 18:04

      I like the idea of only playing each other once, and just change the home ground advantage around each year, then finals, they could even have a playoff for 7 + 8 spot between 10, 9, 8 ,7 in the first week.

    Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 18:07

    I have a great idea, LEAVE THE GAME ALONE!!! Every year new rules? Absolute bullshit!!!

    Intel Design · 06/04/2019 at 18:17

    Great call.

    It's turned into a politically correct shit show. It all began with fears that mum's would steer their kids away from footy and into sissy sports like soccer. Then the AFLesW came along, with yet more softening and sanitizing of a game that was once the envy of the (former) Western world. If it weren't for Supercoach, I wouldn't waste my time with the appalling PC shite.

      kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 22:17

      Haha this reads as some weird manifesto. It starts off with over judicious umpiring and ends at the collapse of "former" Western society. What a strange rollercoaster

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:23

        Yeah he sounds like that deranged Neo-Nazi who shows up here occasionally, also Lesbian-Phobic hating comments…must be a fun life he leads to be so filled with hate.
        People like that are actually really quite stupid from their own ignorance.

          kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 22:27

          Yeah Rusty, I'm always one to give the benefit of the doubt but why bring the AFLW into this? That comp has developed beautifully over the years and fostered a lot of grassroots love among girls for a sport that has traditionally shunned them. Should be thanking it!

          Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 22:35

          Sorry??? Rusty?

            Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:37

            Not you Hawk, that Intel Design thing.

Peepee · 06/04/2019 at 00:26

Don’t be a sook. Lots of goals tonight. Woopee.

Daniel · 06/04/2019 at 01:47

I started with Dusty and Selwood in my midfield this year, alredy traded dusty out to lloyd, after selwoods performance this week should i look to trade him out for oliver/fyfe or merrett instead, or do i hold him until the byes?

    DavidC · 06/04/2019 at 07:49

    Well, Oliver and Merrett aren't exactly lighting it up either so wouldn't recommend either of those two. Probably hold until things become clearer and a clear target emerges.

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 12:11

    Wait to see how Kelly is first. But Selwood seems to have found his place on the wing, will be up and down scoring this year. Should still average 100ish. Tough as nails though and if Geelong’s going gets tough expect him back in guts.

    Get rookies right

    Fix injuries

    Deal with mid pricers

    Then do sideways premium trades

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 12:40

      Sound advice Derek

      Got rookies right (I think) Butters, Clark & Setterfield are my only expensive rooks.

      So far no injuries hope I didn't jinx myself.

      No Mid-price Though brought in Stewart

      Sideways Premo. Not sure if it's sideways or downgrade Simmo to Stewart. Keeping a close eye on Dusty in the next two game, might have to upgrade him to Fyfe or sideways to Bont. Dunkley concerns me as well, with doggies jammed pack midfield not sure of how much time he'll spend in the guts unless he kicks a few goals each week.
      Heeney has me worried as well, have they managed his ankle enough, will he be ok this weekend or next week? We'll see how he goes today.

      Good luck all and hope the SC Gods be kind this week.

COREYSC · 06/04/2019 at 07:58

Who is everyone fielding out of Setterfield and Parker

    Maverick_ · 06/04/2019 at 08:24

    I’m playing Parker off the back of his form.

    Lazza · 06/04/2019 at 08:31

    Both

    Holty01 · 06/04/2019 at 09:29

    Parker for me. Bit concerned Setterfield might get a tagging role again after he did such a good job against Rocky last week.

    Pranav · 06/04/2019 at 10:07

    both because im not taking clark score i think if you are choosing between the 2 id go parker

      Derek · 06/04/2019 at 12:05

      I decided to take Clark’s 65. Could have gone Parker.

      65 is only 5 less than 70. Which I would definitely taken.

        Pranav · 06/04/2019 at 14:22

        Looks to be the smart play I got greedy with Setterfield and he is on 10 at 1/4 time

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 12:57

      I'd take anything over 60 from rookies. Setterfield hasn't set the world on fire for me to better that 65. He scored 69 Rd1 and 50 Rd2 also did the tagging role. Parker on the other hand scores of 87 & 89 in the first two games is the ideal candidate to better Clark's score.

      Good luck and go with what your gut is telling you.

Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:06

That shark move selection of hibberd looks great

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 10:12

    Hehehehehe. That Hibberd sharkmove by shark move now resembles a "guppy" move.

Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 09:18

So much complaining about the scoring from last night. Remeber supercoach looks at the impact of the disposals and does not reward in effective disposals or irrelevant goals at the end of games.

    Lekdog · 06/04/2019 at 10:15

    ^

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 11:36

    CD score players on how they GET the ball (possession) and how they get RID of it (disposal). This means someone can have a possession but not a disposal, ie they are tackled and there is a ball up. No disposal counted, but still get points for the possession.

    Everyone just looks at the disposals.

    It also is effected by WhERE on field and WHEN

      Derek · 06/04/2019 at 11:59

      Merrett’s first half 61 looked a bit generous but he was on 29 after 10 mins, only 4 disposals but 3 tackles that all lead to a turnover.

      When Melbourne were coming in the second quarter, Merrett go a snack in the head almost in goal square that gave him a free kick. His kick to Fantasia got a 50m and they went inside 50. Merrett got 18 points for that.

      His final quarter he was BOG by a fair margin and should have scored a few more.

      Essendon won game and he had a lot to do with the result

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 13:06

        You seriously saying Zerrett should have scored more than 120 Derek?
        And to pan everyone saying they just look at disposals is a pretty trash statement to make.
        I myself highlighted that Brayshaw had +8 marks +8 Inside 50's +1 Centre Clearance over Zerrett and that Zerrett had +5 tackles +2 Frees For over Brayshaw. Don't think that's only looking at disposals but I digress

          Nice_Person · 06/04/2019 at 13:18

          Zerrett also went at 85% compared to brayshaw 62%.
          Zerrett had 7 intercept possessions (which are scored heavily) Brayshaw had 0.

          I don't see anything wrong with Merrett outscoring brayshaw

            WatchClosely · 06/04/2019 at 13:38

            Just because CD says Brayshaw had 0 intercept possessions doesn't make it true. I saw at least one intercept mark by him in Dees backline from a Merrett kick. Wouldn't be suprised if that intercept went to Zerrett instead of the turnover. His impact on the game was minimal 90% of his handballs traveled less than 5m and came from seagull activity he seemed to be scoring points for looking at a player with the ball.
            1 big tackle Derek only 1 most of the others were nothing tackles in congestion where 1 or 2 other players made the initial tackle and he jumped on. He was also credited for clearances that weren't his on a number of occaisions after recieving from Shiel who had the actual clearance but not the CD stat.
            Watch the game again mate slow-mo every ballup and you'll see that he got 50pts for nothing

              Derek · 06/04/2019 at 14:29

              Stupid CD not being able to tell Merrett and Shiel apart and giving Merrett 50 free point, how stupid are they

              Sharkmove_King · 06/04/2019 at 14:54

              2 players I see that get called seagulls and soft are Merrett and Z.Fisher….have you actually watched these guys play closely? Or do you assume they're soft because of their size?

              Secondly, obviously Goodwin didn't think Shiel is better or had more of an impact than Merrett, otherwise the tag would have changed.

              Thirdly, if those stats from zzzCalint & Nice person are correct then I think Merrett had the better game. 8 extra marks doesn't mean much if they're uncontested, 5 extra tackles is a lot and the DE difference is significant

                Derek · 06/04/2019 at 15:03

                They tagged Shiel at start of second quarter after he had it 13 times in 1st. Only did it for 1 quarter and went back to merrett

                ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 15:08

                nice cherry picking Shark Left out the 8 more inside 50's why?… also I never said anything about tackles not being worth a lot more. Simply put up who had more than the other as a "comparison".

                So have Derek speak for all of us saying we only focus on disposals.
                Now you show up and have cherries on your white knight sword.

                Done with this site. I am always up for discussions but not when people put words in others mouths or simply can't read.

    Sharkmove_King · 06/04/2019 at 15:22

    Me cherry picking stats? Coming from the person who left out the 85 % de compared to 62%de?? Did you not think that was significant?

    Also, you say you're up for a discussion and then you get in one and then decide to leave the site. Sounds a little bit like taking your bat and ball and going home to me

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 16:13

      Just confirming you can't read. The stats I showed was to outline the difference without disposals, the post was in response to Derek saying people only look at the disposals. You saying I'm cherry picking, feel like I'm just having to repeat myself to you…. do I need to say this a third time in a different way for you?

dontblushbaby · 06/04/2019 at 09:34

Jeremy McGovern – will he be in the top 8 defenders ?

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 10:43

    I think ultimately he will be in and around the mark. Scores fluctuate too much for my liking. If you really want him, pick him up after his inevitable price drop

chuck-a-spekky · 06/04/2019 at 11:13

Thoughts on trading Nick Blakey to Darcy Moore in the fwd line?

Worth the trade or save it?

Haven't made any trades yet and lucky to have already chosen right rookies so far. Only other concern is Heeney but I think he's worth holding.

    KeenButClueless · 06/04/2019 at 13:01

    If a trade is worth $150k, do you think you will gain $150k extra cash from Moore versus Blakey?

RoyWetard · 06/04/2019 at 12:08

Danger VC but went Gawn C (-2 points is annoying, I still think going for someone other then Danger is the right move) and I've seen the reasoning why Brayshaw got less points for his goal but if it says on the site that a player gets 14 points for an uncontested mark while maintaining possession, kicks a goal which is an effective kick I think he should get 14 points no matter what it means to the outcome. Also, does anyone know why the 3300 points rule is a thing?

DavidC · 06/04/2019 at 12:38

Is Phillips out?

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 12:51

    Yep

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 13:37

Doc is kicking well in the warm up

Looks fine to me get out there son ….. 🤣

Benjiherb · 06/04/2019 at 14:01

Yeap no more supercoach for me I give up .
Steven,doodee,Jacobs an Jacobs traded for Phillips which is out aswell now haha. 4 in two weeks .

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 14:08

    Oh Benji, that's some rotten luck there mate, maybe you could go to Mummy next week if he goes ok?

Pranav · 06/04/2019 at 14:09

Looks like curnow playing a role on Lloyd

JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 14:16

Very happy I pulled the trigger and traded out Mills.

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 14:22

    He is playing as a tall defender. Not what he is good at. When will Grundy be back?

      Derek · 06/04/2019 at 15:01

      42 at half. As a tall defender that is best he can do.

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 15:06

        If I kept him I would have been contented with that score at HT, considering what I paid for him, but he wasn't going to be a top six defender, so it was better to cut him now than later on.

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 14:24

    Great call John. Doing bugger all again today.

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 14:29

      I gave Simmo another chance, he might be going to Whitfield next week if he gets another sub par score. I just can't afford to keep any under performing players at the start, I have all the best rookies, so I can afford a few sideways trades.

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:53

        Hope Simmo picks it up a bit in the last for you John

          JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 16:06

          Looks like he will be going and that will be the last of my corrective trades.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 16:34

    I don't know if my glasses is playing tricks with eyes, but Mills scored 107.

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 16:43

      Yes I traded the wrong backman out, but was prepared to give Simmo one more chance, as far as Sydney players go, you never know where they are going to be played from one week to another.

        Derek · 06/04/2019 at 16:48

        The ball was permanently in the swans defence. He couldn’t help be get the ball.

        McVeigh looked in trouble. Mills might get the running back roll.

        Have him in draft teams. More than happy.

        Love to see him get some midfield time though.

        Opposite for Simpson. Ball wasn’t down his end

DEE · 06/04/2019 at 14:49

went with Setterfield on the ground over Parker and Petrucelle…. FML

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 14:59

    Most would. He is very highly owned. He is playing in the guts, hopefully get a few more in second half. his main problem is Crips and Walsh keeping getting it.

DEE · 06/04/2019 at 14:51

Gibbons no disposals and 1 tackle @ HT

TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 15:01

Gibbons is playing like a gibbon! Give the bloke a banana at half time. Gee wizz

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:06

    Could find himself starring in the VFL again soon I think.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 15:10

      Yep. If he does not produce a decent second half, he will get dropped. No doubt about it. One tackle at half time. That is pathetic.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 15:22

      Any news on the Tim Kelly injury mate? Will he miss games?

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:36

        Don't know yet Hawk but Geelong have said in the Geelong Advertiser, that they don't think it's serious and not even sure if he need scans or not, I think he'll probably get a scan anyway, just to be safe, hope he's right for next week!

          TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 15:38

          I hope so mate, just about to pull the trade lever mate. LOL

            Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:41

            I brought him in this week …hehe, I'm just gonna hold even if he's out for a week or 2, already done a sidewaysy, they don't feel good.

              JEL · 06/04/2019 at 17:34

              Got him in this week as well.
              At least Geelong have a 8 day break which will help.

    silversovereign · 06/04/2019 at 15:10

    Traded him out this week on the basis that he won’t generate much cash #rightcall.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:51

    Gibbons has improved a bit now…he's on 5 lol

TBone_9 · 06/04/2019 at 15:10

Hangover from yesterday still in the back of my mind, but it’s a new day of footy boys. Very tempted to go Billings down to Moore as my first trade of the year. Reckon Billings won’t average more than 85 and Moore should be around that ballpark if he can stay on the park. That extra 200k could fund Brodie Smith to a premos, Williams to Lloyd, Gibbons/Atkins to Libba. What do you reckon community?

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 15:34

    Hi TBone, I'm happy to keep Billings for now if he keeps up his 80+ scores, but the fact you have already worked out what you want to do with the saved cash, I say go for it.

      TBone_9 · 06/04/2019 at 16:20

      Cheers DJ. I’ll wait and see to make sure there are no late outs and go from there. A little more worries I’ll have to burn a couple trades next week to get rid of the duds that are Setterfield, Atkins and Gibbons

Blueth · 06/04/2019 at 15:25

What are the stats on the amount of people who traded out Heeney?
Tracking for a 120

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:27

    22474

      Blueth · 06/04/2019 at 15:35

      wow

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 15:44

    Repaid the faith for those who held. A Dusty big score would be the icing on the cake!

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 15:37

Carlton don’t look too good, at least my SuperCoach does, Crippa, SPS and Walshy on field. Thank god I traded Balta to Moore to get setterfield off the field

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:38

Go Heeney Cripps and Walsh you good things!

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 15:40

    Damn wanted Heeney cheap ! Lucky I started with Lloyd was a bit scared thurlow would affect him a bit

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 15:46

    Got the same 3. Not having Lloyd hurts but ya cant have em all!

    Gibbons and Setterfield poo rookie scores on my bench is obviously going to stung their cash flow. Gibbons will be lucky to get a game next week

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:48

      Yeah same Tommy no Lloyd yet, soon though hopefully…got a bit of cash in the bank now.

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 15:52

    Bet you are stoked Heeney has come good. So many coaches punted him this week. Walsh is on the field and Setters on the bench. Thank fark for that!!

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 15:56

      Sure am mate, a big ton would be a nice bonus, Same here with Setters, I've left him on the pine too, don't like 50 or less scores.
      Got Constable instead of Gibbons pre round 1 too thank Buddha lol

    Shake_n_bake · 06/04/2019 at 16:41

    & Lloyd

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 15:48

Wish I traded setterfield like I originally intended instead of Balta, watch him kick a bag today !

Michael · 06/04/2019 at 15:50

Simpson is this years Hibberd

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 15:50

Hey Lek.

Simmo is NOT in sleeves.

Does that mean Rich has been traded in?

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 15:51

So far gut instinct has been working, dropped Simmo for Stewart and believed in Heeney to bounce back this week. Now just waiting on Dusty who I was thinking of trading for Fyfe. Dunkley will be my last concern for the weekend.

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 16:07

    Yeah i was heavily considering Heeney and Dusty to Kelly and Neale. No doubt who i was bringing in would leave me in good stead, btu not sure we can afford to be sideways trading premos this early on. Dusty big score would top it all off nicely!

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 16:23

      I feel for those 22k who traded Heeney out this week. Had to drop Simmo no more sleeves and not doing the kick-ins. Dusty maybe just dusting off some cobwebs.

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 16:31

        I wish I'd traded Simmo out last week, but I gave him one more chance, he will be gone Sunday night.

          DEE · 06/04/2019 at 17:10

          I should have traded OUT Simpson and kept Dusty! Held Heeney tho…

Ja191 · 06/04/2019 at 16:21

traded heeney out yup that was always gonna happen lol

Hawks · 06/04/2019 at 16:23

So far so good this round.

Mid week was thinking of trading Dusty & Heeney.

In the end went Dusty to Constable and Ridley (who I thought wouldn't play) to Lloyd, retained Heeney

    KSinny · 06/04/2019 at 18:11

    Great trades

Rocksta_ · 06/04/2019 at 16:24

I hate to say I told ya so about Heeney…………But I did!

    DEE · 06/04/2019 at 16:38

    didn’t even cross my mind, if you traded him OUT… sucks to be you right now! …..Heeney Meeney Tiny Pre(Mo)…. lolll Song courtesy of LekDog!

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 16:49

    Have no problem with trading out Heeney, he won't play like that every weekend, happier with Kelly and was able to get Lloyd in by doing the trade.

      DEE · 06/04/2019 at 17:00

      although I admit I did trade out Dusty, 6 minutes left in the 1st QTR and he’s already sitting on 40…. loll. bloody hell…

        DEE · 06/04/2019 at 17:03

        but I got FyfeLyfe to replace him, who should finish with a higher average than Dusty…. Top 6 MID you would think.

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 17:05

        It depends on who you traded Dusty out to, I didn't pick him this year, he's too inconsistent, he can go big but also get those under 90 scores.

          DEE · 06/04/2019 at 17:06

          Fyfe

            JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 17:10

            Yes just saw that, we must have been typing at the same time, I don't have a problem with that trade, if Fyfe can stay on the ground, I would prefer him to Dusty.

        Derek · 06/04/2019 at 17:13

        38 after 10 mins.

        28 at the end of quarter

        Don’t do this dusty

          AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2019 at 17:25

          Do it Dusty, with Merrett scoring above his projection i need him to stay quiet to have a chance of beating you Derek

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 16:44

    Not gonna kick 4 every week including the sealer but he was good as a fwd today

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 16:58

      Agree!! But good signs ahead, seems to be over with that ankle injury and with McVeigh going down either Mills or Heeney might spend more time in the middle.

        Derek · 06/04/2019 at 17:12

        Mills will take McVeighs role

      NoLanguage96 · 07/04/2019 at 11:34

      Still picked up 26 touches! Feel sorry for anyone that traded him

        Peter · 07/04/2019 at 11:38

        I traded him for whitfeild and upgraded hore to Kelly I'm ok with it

          NoLanguage96 · 07/04/2019 at 11:58

          Both solid ins. I'm happy I held Heeney and traded Dusty

    COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 00:10

    More points for Lloyd I reckon with McVeigh out

One Touch Wonder · 06/04/2019 at 16:40

Kept Merrett. Kept Heeney. Kept Mills. Tick. Tick. Tick.

    DEE · 06/04/2019 at 17:05

    well done…

Rick Grimes · 06/04/2019 at 17:17

Short is done. Great. Probably cost me every h2h.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 17:24

    Bummer Rick, you could still get a good score this week though, your team started strong and has a high prediction.

    hedski · 06/04/2019 at 17:55

    In both of my draft sides and will cost me there too.

JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 17:30

Just the one trade for me next week, Simpson to Whitfield and that will finish my corrective trades.

Swans2012 · 06/04/2019 at 17:38

Mummy looking like he might be my solution to the English r2 problem

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 17:54

    Could be a good call Swans, English seems to be crap even having the number 1 spot.

      Swans2012 · 06/04/2019 at 18:08

      Yes he is thoroughly worse than I’d hoped, will think on it next week, might have the cash to go to grundy but we’ll see….if mummy continues like he is he could be everything I hoped English would be….

TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 17:38

Dusty laying another massive turd in our midfields. Had a nice first quarter but hasn't looked like it since

TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 17:45

Dusty is turning into a serious muppet. WTF is going on with that bloke? Done SFA in that second quarter.

    Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 17:53

    Too much nose candy

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 18:01

      LOL You might be onto something there Hawk. He just looks scheit!

        Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 18:04

        He made the gesture before lol

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 17:53

    Maybe he has blood poisoning from too many tatts?…hey mate, what the hell with Mummy? 🙂
    You're really going balls to the wall this year, could be a good call this year…who'd you trade out for him and why?

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 17:59

      I am taking a couple of huge risks to start this year Russty. I started with all the right rookies and am ranked at around 4K at the moment. Hoping that Mumford can keep going and go close to tonning up. If he can do that I will be stoked. On 56SC at half time. I want to really push the boundaries where I can. If it back fires, I can say that I have a fair old crack. I am watching Zac Williams like a hawk mate. Hope that shoulder was a false alarm. If he plays out the game and is OK, then I will execute my second trade later today. If I do, you will not like it! LOL If Williams is injured I will have to abandon my second trade to manage Williams and/or Kelly. Its delicate at the minute. Saying a little prayer.

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 18:09

        Well I admire your plums mate…with many teams looking similar this year, reckon there needs to be some pods in there otherwise, you could get stuck in a pack.
        I'm gonna bring my pods in along the way but would just be happy for now to improve my ranking significantly this week, currently around 40,000

      neil demons delight · 06/04/2019 at 18:02

      you would be happy about Walsh Russty

        Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 18:05

        I know I am NDD

        TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 18:06

        Me too Neil. Had him on the field at M7 today. Very pleased. Constable at M8 is a cherry on top.

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 18:16

        Yeah bud, that's the reason I started him, so he can deliver tons and cash, hope he can continue with the tons, will get better with his D/E.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 18:41

    Was gonna give him until Rd4 after today my finger is itching real bad to flick him.

Holty01 · 06/04/2019 at 17:46

Oh dear. And Heeney is a prime example as to why you don’t trade premo’s. 😫 looks like his ankle wasn’t as bad as it was talked up to be. Maybe I should practice what I preach.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 17:50

    What about Dusty ?, he's the opposite of the example. So it really depends on which player we are thinking of trading.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 17:51

    Rumours can hurt Holty….I think it was the Supercoach Gods smiting those who ditched him this week.
    Same deal with Fyfe, when he declared himself fine before round 1, I made room to get him in, didn't listen to the scare reports about his elbow.
    The dude played a game out with a broken leg once 🙂

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 17:51

    That hurts Holty. Heeney is back in a big way. I never started with him, so was happy. Not sure now. Traded in Shane Mumford for Goldy today. Huge risk and am saying my little prayers. Hope it pays off.

      JEL · 06/04/2019 at 18:28

      Mummy for Goldy…. Big Cojones!!

    TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 17:54

    Hopefully dusty pulls his finger out and continues to back up the theory, not looking good tho

    hedski · 06/04/2019 at 18:15

    I'll put my hand up there and admit that I did Holty, that ankle worried me (got TK in, done an ankle👍).
    Allowed me to go Hore to Scrimshaw, let's see if the SC gods give me a good kicking tomorrow while I'm down.

Michael · 06/04/2019 at 17:49

Held Heeney and traded Dusty. So far, so good.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 18:20

JEL · 06/04/2019 at 18:22

Haven't regretted dumping Balta last week yet

Dan · 06/04/2019 at 18:28

Sydney Stack is looking like a 'must have' in a couple of weeks at this rate (if he keeps his spot). Only 102K.

    hedski · 06/04/2019 at 18:47

    It's a pity they didn't hold him back until round 5 or 6.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 18:58

    Get him in for Gibbons in a few weeks time.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 19:17

    Straight swap to Gibbons for me.

      COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 00:13

      Yeah welcome to my team for Round 5

JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 18:53

You were right last week Russty when you said I should fix up my defence first, was trading out Simpson and Mills for Whitfield and Lloyd, but I decided to give Simmo one more game to show me he should stay in my team and I wanted to see how Whitfield went with Kelly back in the team, so traded Heeney out instead for Kelly, I'm still happy with that trade since I was worried about Heeney's ankle, not his form. So Simpson will be gone from my team on Sunday night for Whitfield, admittedly a week late.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 19:03

    You can get burned either way mate it's really hard to predict the future. No one knows anything until it actually happens, Like Heeney and Fyfe, Kelly could be fine to go next week too.
    At least you got Lloyd in, no one expects a premo like Simpson to fall so far, so fast, just bad luck.
    First rounds are for corrections, not I told you so's, or gloating…good luck for the rest of the year mate.

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 19:44

      Good luck to you to Russty, at least by next weekend I should be as happy as I can be with my team, only up and down trades after that, not counting long term injuries.

    neil demons delight · 06/04/2019 at 19:33

    John we are doing it again Simmo for Whitfield for me too. H;s a gun

      JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 19:37

      He sure is Neil, if I'd stuck to my starting G&R in defence he would have been my starting D3. We get there in the end I guess.

    Noirlust · 07/04/2019 at 00:09

    Looks like you need to worry about Kelly's ankle now

      JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2019 at 11:40

      Not worried, I'll just put him on the bench if he's out for a week or two. My worry with Heeney was the fact he was playing sore and giving us below par scores, if they had rested him instead of playing him, I would have just put him on the bench.

Kewbie Bear · 06/04/2019 at 19:13

C'ya Dusty.

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 19:14

The Mummy has done pretty darned well in his first game for 18 months, anyone stuck with a crap Ruck could do a lot worse.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 19:16

Going to be a huge scoring round I feel. 2250 could be the par score this week.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 19:17

    Yeah agree Dave, could be some high 2500's this week, even some 2600's.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 19:21

      Yup plenty will pump out 2500+

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 20:15

    Only looking at 2100 – 2200 at most, my Port rookies aren't doing all that well at the moment, had Setterfield on field and a few of my defenders under performed as well.

    Boris_Baconbeer · 07/04/2019 at 09:55

    I think it will be boom and bust week. Some scores looking very high and some are going low in the leagues I've looked at. A real pot-luck draw.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 06/04/2019 at 19:18

Martin to Libba next week ain't too late for those who stuck it out with him this round.

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 19:18

I have no Lloyd, Whitfield will do for now. Take a bow son you're a gun and made up for the points I lost on Dusty.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 19:52

    Well done Donk, Whitfield really delivered this week, think I might have to trade out my whole backline this year to end up with all the best.

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 20:48

      With a bit of luck Whitfield came to play and play he did. Should've been really mad with Dustys score, but thanks to Whitfield pretty happy at the end. Points lost was covered.
      But that doesn't mean Dusty doesn't the flick this week. Really torn of who to replace him with either Fyfe, Neale or Bont.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 21:21

        Neale

        Jet

          SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 22:10

          By Geeeee!!!! Flicked on Fan footy and what a monster score Neale welcome to my team, Dusty as much as I love ya mate but ya have to go.

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:21

        I'd say Neale Donk….the guy is a points scoring machine…Fyfe also, but Neale probably more reliable injury-wise.

_Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 19:41

Were in a tight h2h this week rusty mate! Projections are 3 points apart. Reckon captain choice will decide the winner since were both passing on the danger VC. My mcrae vs your fyfe. Gl mate

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 19:51

    Cheers kyle yeah I saw that…gonna be very tight mate, might need a 160 from Fyfey boy this week haha.

Pman · 06/04/2019 at 19:58

Is The Hoff playing tonight as he has zero points at QTR time?

Locked and Loaded · 06/04/2019 at 20:03

Dusty had to go and if you still have him has to go!

Justin · 06/04/2019 at 20:09

YES! The Hoff has had a kick!

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 20:18

Willem drew, Duursma.. RIP big score

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 20:23

Duursma and Drew…ugh!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 20:40

    Rooks: win some u loose some

    Most teams will have them on field.

    Win some – constable and walsh (can play a bit the lads)

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 20:44

      Yeah mate…can't wait to get rid of all of them!…hehe

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 20:49

        Was at the game today

        Walsh will stay in my team for awhile longer this year.

        And will feature prominently in years to come. 🤠

          Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:01

          Yeah Walsh is a ripper, and Constable too looks very solid, Drew and Duursma did before tonight too.

    SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 20:58

    Not worried so much about them, rookies will be rookies they're expected to score below 50s now and then. And I'm sure majority of coaches will have them on field as us.

hedski · 06/04/2019 at 20:57

Pull ya finger out Darling, I want 4 second half goals from you…..

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:20

    Ask your Darling Darling to kick some goals for ya mate 🙂

      hedski · 06/04/2019 at 21:35

      She's busy doing the dishes but Jack got one.

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:43

        Hehehe

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:04

The SuperCoach Gods are giving us the Bird after our good starts to the week, saying "don't get cocky, mofos"….lol

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:17

I regret not getting Butters in now, can't believe I don't have Butters, heard Rocky copped a big hit too?…knocked out…anyone watching that game?

    yoo · 06/04/2019 at 21:20

    possible concussion

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 21:32

    Rozee even better Russty, was tempted to get him in as my last good rookie on Friday, but went with T.Kelly instead.

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:34

      Yeah I saw you were keen on Rozee JDJ…some peeps tried to talk you out of it, Kelly's still a good choice…top 6 fwd.

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 22:03

        I was really conflicted with my trades last week, I wanted Lloyd and Rozee, felt Simpson and Mills needed to go, but was worried about Heeney's ankle and I liked the way Kelly was playing, so a sliding door moment.

          _Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 22:06

          If you went simmo to lloyd youd have to be happy. Mills tonned up and lloyd went big again mate. Even if heeney went 130+ you got the ton out of kelly too

            JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 22:40

            I went Mills to Lloyd and Heeney to Kelly. Simpson will be going next week, a week too late.

    Beezneez · 07/04/2019 at 13:28

    Butters might get a week or two suspension

      Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 15:07

      What did he do Beez?…haven't seen that game yet.

TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 21:20

Looks like the Rocky bubble has burst. He looked seriously punch drunk. Might have to take the points and cash when I trade him out next week. WOW. KAPOW!!!!

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:24

    Powell-Pepper mate…106 at 3/4 time 😉

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:27

The right rooks on field is so important, screwed me the first week, got em all wrong…set me back miles on the rest.

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 21:29

At least i can have constable on field if rocky is gone next week, a 50 on the field and 99 on the bench this week though is a bit disappointing

Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 21:35

And Rocky burns👏👏🤘😂congrats people

    BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 21:43

    He had a head knock, hope he scores 140 next week just to spite ya Hawky ! I am happy that i started him and didnt bring him in this week though lol

      Lazza · 06/04/2019 at 23:32

      Well he ain’t a keeper .. averaged 12 pts a qtr before the head tap… he cannot handle a tag .. bank and split..

      Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 00:49

      Reason I said it is because of all the tools having a go at people that traded Heeney out? No offence man, too many hero’s in here fhat want to have a dig when they’re call goes well but say nothing when they go wrong! I I traded Heeney out, gut call and I stand by it, he won’t do that again soon, we all take risks, this game is about taking risks to stay ahead of the pack, sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t, but my point is don’t come out and be a hero like you know everything, to many hero’s, win the 50k then come see me!!

        GreendaleFC · 07/04/2019 at 07:50

        Aren't you coming out like a hero by having a go at people who brought in Rocky? They have also taken a calculated risk.

BlueBaggerJosh · 06/04/2019 at 21:43

Where the hell did this come from for Rozee?!

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:51

    5 Goals 2 helps a fair bit…jeez he'll make some cash now though.

    Lazza · 06/04/2019 at 22:31

    There are few youngies you want to jot down now for 2020 .. Rozee, Dow, Walsh, Rayner, McCluggage … enormous talents at such a young age

AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2019 at 21:57

Whelp, took a risk on Rocky that hasn't given me instant gratification. Hopefully he can bounce back next week

Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 21:58

I guess Sheed is the real deal after all…pretty good bargain for a guy averaging over 100.

    neil demons delight · 06/04/2019 at 22:48

    yes Russty i reckon he is bringing him in thisweek

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:57

      Happy with Libba Neil, but I would've liked to have started with both.
      How come you haven't been around much lately mate?

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 22:01

Ouch! 20k coaches brought Rocky in this week. I feel for them (never chase for points) Hope Rocky will be alright after that head clash.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:03

    He got knocked out in the 3rd quarter.

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 22:16

      Just watched the incident didn't look much. Wasn't a head to head clash, just comes to show Rocky is an injury prone. Good player, good at football but a long list of history in his name.

      Lazza · 06/04/2019 at 23:27

      The point being he only had 36 pts up to the point they put him out of his misery. ..
      Some players just cannot handle a tag … Martin being another

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 22:28

    I started with Rocky. He has been excellent. Just want to assess how he recovers from that blow to his head. I fear that I may need to trade him out next week if he does not get up.

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 23:02

      Could go Rocky straight to Sheed Hawk for a nice little profit too

      Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 10:14

      Play you in 2 leagues Hawk!

    kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 22:33

    Not sure you can chalk that down to his history. Concussions and head clashes are randomly scattered around. Bad luck to owners of him. Was he on 45 points during Q3? Might not have been his week anyway…

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 09:25

      I understand Concussions can happen to anyone at anytime at any games, bottom line it's still an injury, Merrett for instance who had concussions a few times now, if he gets another one he's future will be in limbo.

      Rocky has only played a full season once in his career back in 2012 22 games, 2013 played 21 games and 2017 20 games since. Not putting Rocky down, the guy is a gun player, his injury history and Wines coming back worried me to pick him.

    Hoot · 07/04/2019 at 10:34

    Remember what happened to Merrett in 2018. He was never the same after his concussion. Took him until about Rd12 to get his act together.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 22:01

Hands up if you backed your gut and brought Rozee in for balta?

🤚👌

    Shake_n_bake · 06/04/2019 at 22:26

    Always had Rozzee

    TOPHAWK1 · 06/04/2019 at 22:30

    Not me. Still have Balta and do not have Rozee. Clanger……..

      Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:32

      Don't despair Hawk, Balta should allow you to afford a supersized Big Mac Meal with his $14 profit lol.
      P.S I have him too.

    Hawk131415 · 06/04/2019 at 22:34

    Fizzed won’t do it again, but in saying that, Balta is a spud

    Nozzy · 06/04/2019 at 22:47

    Had him in for Hore but last minute got Moore instead…

      Maverick_ · 06/04/2019 at 23:24

      Bought rozee in for Greene .big tick

_Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 22:03

Neale going at 82% from 41 touches and witherden 92% from 25. Havnt looked at sc scores but surely both gotta be BIG

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/04/2019 at 22:09

    170 plus Neale

      _Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 22:10

      Boy oh boy wowee wish i threw the C on him. Atleast 1 of my h2h opponents did 🤕

    Dermin8r · 06/04/2019 at 23:01

    and he is my Captain this week!

      DEE · 07/04/2019 at 02:18

      Nice Dermin!

Mark Fawcett · 06/04/2019 at 22:09

Traded Heeney for Boak, tried to reverse it but was already locked out. Should be pretty even though after this game?

kinglear009 · 06/04/2019 at 22:13

Holy moly, my swap from Dusty to Neale is looking beneficial already!

    KSinny · 06/04/2019 at 22:18

    Awesome trade mate! Wanted to do it but didn't have enough coin 🙁 went to Sloane so still pretty happy.

LeDoctor · 06/04/2019 at 22:15

Great game between Lions and Power but that Harris Andrews 40sc really stings.

_Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 22:16

Witherden only 91. A bit hard done by?

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 02:17

    Agreed!

AuroraBorealis?! · 06/04/2019 at 22:26

Putting the C on Neale was a good idea! Too bad it was only in my draft team :'(

Pranav · 06/04/2019 at 22:32

the small silver lining in holding dusty is that if i were to trade him rocky is who i would of brought in

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:47

    Maybe go to Sloane or Neale if you can afford to Pranav.

      Pranav · 06/04/2019 at 23:04

      i saw something about if the crouch brothers stay fit sloane should score well so he is tempting and should be able to afford him. however neale is the uber premium so he should be the aim only problem is i cant afford him without 2 trades

        Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 23:05

        Neale is a necessity I think, whether it takes one or two trades.

KSinny · 06/04/2019 at 22:33

How's everyone's score looking this week? I'm 2058 with Macrae, Libba, Collins to go. Unfortunately having Drew and Setterfield getting 30's really let me down but u can't win them all.

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 23:14

    That will be a good score

SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 22:39

1779/16 Grundy(C) still to play Macrae, Dunkley, Parker, Burgess, Scott and Clark's 65 to add. Projected 2304. Still deciding who to field Burgess or Wilks.

How's everyone else travelling so far.

    Russty_ · 06/04/2019 at 22:45

    Was looking at 2300+, but now probably be lucky to get to 2250 this week.

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 22:52

      I think 2250 will be par this week. I see in all my league almost everyone is projected 2250

      COREYSC · 06/04/2019 at 23:55

      Hoping to crack the 2500 mark projected with 2,481 with Macrae as skipper, Dunkley Parker and Scrimshaw left

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 08:58

        Same

        Whats your current score?

          COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 13:18

          1,945
          Macrae (c) Dunkley Scrimshaw Parker left to play

    hedski · 06/04/2019 at 22:52

    1692 from 17 played Donks.
    Brodie S and Darling been my only real disappointments besides a couple of rookies that most had on field (Setterfield on the pine or could be worse).
    Have Parker, Collins, Scrimshaw, Dunkley and Captain Macrae to play.
    Oh and I traded out Heeney.

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 23:00

      Macrae I'm hoping to score big tomorrow all my league opponent don't have him. Crossing my finger for the both of us Hedski.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 22:53

    Now looking at between 2100 to 2150. Currently on 1763 with Dunkley, Worpel, Billings and Fyfe to come.

      SC_Donkey · 06/04/2019 at 23:04

      Keep your head up John still early days, still time to fix our team. Mind you first two round I've had 2 sub 2200 in row, my team still have lots of fixing to do Dusty is the main one so far, hopefully Dunkley will not be the same happy to have him averaging 90+ until the bye rounds.

        JohnDJ59 · 06/04/2019 at 23:30

        My first trade tomorrow night will be Simpson to Whitfield, so that will be a start to making my team better.

    _Kyle · 06/04/2019 at 23:16

    1651/16 with mcrae to come as C. On track for 2350

    Derek · 06/04/2019 at 23:18

    Just so average again.

    2192 with only Scrimshaw to play

    Drew, Setterfield and of course Dusty hurt.

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 11:22

      Same Derek and definitely Dusty is hurting us. 3 games in, how long can we persist on him. Is it time to pull the trigger or keep faith he'll bounce back? Something for me to think about this week.

    Shake_n_bake · 06/04/2019 at 23:45

    2001 with Macrea Fyfe Skrimshaw and Parker to come

      SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 11:18

      Deym! You could crack 2400+ this week nice.

        Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 13:07

        Not sure ill get to 2400 but was able to have setterfield on the pine and started Rozee.

          SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 13:16

          140 between Scrimshaw & Parker then 260 between Macrae & Fyfe. 400 points is achievable. Hoping Macrae will have a big day today.

          Good luck today everyone.

    KSinny · 06/04/2019 at 23:46

    2058 with Macrae, Libba and Collins

      Sam_01 · 06/04/2019 at 23:50

      1641
      Macrae (c) –
      Dunkley
      Libba
      Steele
      Scrimshaw
      Parker
      Still to play projected 2314 seems about right hopefully go a touch more

    iamme · 07/04/2019 at 01:09

    1692/ 19 with Goldy, Libba and Fyfe as (C) I had 6 players score 60 or less including 3 scores in the 30s…..ouch! The Negative is I was close to trading Dusty to Neale and McGrath to Whitfield, but decided to give them each another week…so that cost me an extra 171 pts,. so I will be lucky to score 2050….double ouch!!

    The one positive is I still have 30 trades

Mark Fawcett · 06/04/2019 at 23:17

1699 with Scrimshaw, Parker, Liberatore, Goldstein and Macrae to play. Constable on the bench and Rocky's knockout score on the field:(

Lazza · 06/04/2019 at 23:19

Some notable events this weekend. So far …

Simpson – 62
Rockliff – 36
Lycett – 49
Darling – 50
Boak – 117

Hopper – 114
Gibbons – 17
Neale – 177
Merrett – 120
Dahlhaus – 105
Milera – 109
Selwood – 47

The round isn’t finished yet .. but lots to consider

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 00:37

    Dahlhaus and Milera I reckon…. sneaky PODS.

TommyC99 · 06/04/2019 at 23:32

Such a weird week. Of the 18 layers played so far, had 9 tons (6 120+ scores) which you’d think is a good foundation. Those big scores are no good when you have 7 scores under 70. Crisp and dusty really hurt and ruined what was looking like my first above average week. 1750 from 18 with Dunkley, scrimshaw, Parker and Macrae C left. I’d be happy with 2250 but that is looking like par atm. Need a macrae special tomorrow!

Sam_01 · 06/04/2019 at 23:46

Forgettable night from treloar, got pushed forward at the start of the game, Adams was burning him all night and he was carrying on like a muppet haha, think beamsy will be the one playing forward though

COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 00:19

With Wines back in the side for Port how much Midfield did Boak play?

    George S · 07/04/2019 at 00:59

    Lots, and looked good

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 01:06

    I watched the game from start to finish Corey and Boak played an excellent game, I thought with Wines back in this would affect Boak’s output a little. But he proved me wrong again… He was just about every where tonight and according to FANFOOTY he had 85% TOG which for me spectating the game closely seemed about right. In saying all that… It was obvious to me that Wines was just easing back in, which is understable coming off an injury. I’ll give him another couple weeks I reckon before he starts hitting his straps, not too sure about what’s gonna happen with Rockliff. Although it was very tempting, I’m glad I didn’t jump on that sheep train and traded him in. Fyfe was the better option for Dusty, because as they say…. Fyfe is Lyfe? WOW… I planned to give you a short and sharp answer Corey but I got a bit carried away here, too many red wines for me tonight loll. I hope I helped you a little… Life is good, GO CATS!!!

      Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 01:40

      Nice dude, you seem like one of the better ones in here, red wine is a killer hey? 😂😂

        DEE · 07/04/2019 at 02:14

        love the old red like I love my footy Hawk… Killer fits the description nicely I reckon. Thanks for the complement mate… I thought everyone’s alright on here most of the time, but you do get the odd character here and there I suppose. Just ignore them Hawk…. don’t bother, just a waste of bloody time. I’m being fairdinkum mate! Good night buddy… I’ll catch you on the flip side mate, hope you crack 2,500 or even 3,000!! lolll…. Imagine that!

      COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 07:22

      Cheers mate, love the analysis! Boak will Be my first Forward upgrade unless Dunkley has a shocker today

    DavidC · 07/04/2019 at 07:35

    Looks like Drew was the loser with Wines coming in.

Aaargghhh…. had the bloody C on Neale all week up until Friday night, changed my mind last minute to McRae thinking he’ll have a walk in the park against Gold Coast. Good luck beating Neale’s score tomorrow mate!

    Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 00:57

    Yeah bad luck mate,’that’s how it goes though, would of been a great pod this week for captain,

      DEE · 07/04/2019 at 01:21

      yeah thanks Hawk, you’re absolutely right mate…. just thought I’d share a snippet of the ups and downs of an SC addict. I’m sure you would very well know what it’s like… We both love this Roller Coaster journey don’t we Hawk! How’s your team so far this week mate? I’m sitting on 1683 with 5 to play tomorrow! Wish you good luck for the rest of the round and all the best for the season mate! Cheers… GO CATS!

        Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 01:29

        Cheers mate, really appreciate that, looking at 2243 atm, with 7 to play, could go either way, to me it’s a bit of fun and I love footy, played it all my life and wouldn’t change it for anyone, love the rivalries and banter that I have with my mates, but just love footy, although it’s changing too much for my liking, my old way of playing and the way we played, it’s looking too soft for me, but I still watch, <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🏆" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f3c6.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🏆" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f3c6.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🏆" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f3c6.svg"&gt;

          DEE · 07/04/2019 at 02:05

          I hear you Hawk, for the absolute love of the game mate! Footy is our religion… in a way I guess! By the way you’re looking to get a pretty decent score I see, good luck with tomorrow’s game mate! GO CATTTSS!!!

            Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 02:08

            Cheers man

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 12:12

          Way too over umpired hawk

          Just let em play and pay the obvious free kick or mark.

          You know something is wrong when the umpire blows his whistle and the crowd looks at each other to see which way it was gonna be paid? 🙊

          Too confusing- let em play.

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 13:10

    Just be happy you have him

Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 00:55

So many people in here that think they are experts and put others down after one game, then next week when it doesn’t go their way don’t say much or make an excuse, I detest them like a sickness, hero’s if you will, it’s mostly luck this game, so to all the so called experts, When did you win the 50k??? You haven’t, so were all on the same field, get rid of your egos, you know who I’m talking to!!!

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 01:10

    Well said mate… it’s all for fun, it’s just a game in the end. CAARRNNN THE CATTTEERRSS!!!!

      Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 01:13

      Exactly Dee, just getting over the hero’s, Carn The Hawkers!!

        Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 01:15

        By the way, I hate the cats, have sooooo many mates that are Catters and family, but I hate to say this, but you boys are looking good atm,

          DEE · 07/04/2019 at 01:55

          mate I didn’t want to say it either but I absolutely hate the Hawks with a passion… 1989 and I was at the G in 2008 when they stole the cup from us that year! 21 wins 1 loss through out the home and away season and our percentage was through the roof that year, won the QF and PF convincingly and lost the GF to your mob. Couldn’t believe it… worst day of my life Hawk! loll…. but to be fair mate, Hawthorn had a remarkable September that year. As most would agree, I put the Bulldogs performance in September 2016 as by far the best in finals history. Hate to say it but the Hawks September finals campaign in 2008 would be right up, but when it comes to the most dominating and one sided September in the history of the game! Cats 2007…. I still remember it like it was just yesterday! What a way to break a 44 year drought…. Record margin 119 pts in a GF!

            Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 02:18

            True mate, but I’m so one eyed it’s not funny, hahah, what I see is an underdog team that was given no chance, lost players early and still got the chocolates, great win by the boys, and in a age and time were the AFL have designed the comp where no team should win back to back? We were in 4 in a row and won 3 in a row, I think they call that a three peat? 🏆🏆🏆, we are the most succesful club of the last 5 decades, no one can deny that!! Only haters, but still people want to say we were looked after, and gifted, ??? That’s bullshit, the boys deserved it, and I love watching my 89’ and 08’ dvds😂😂, we didn’t steal 08, we rapped and pillaged that day with only one left in the bench, give credit??

              DEE · 07/04/2019 at 04:53

              Rushing behinds all day is not in the true spirit of the game, you know that Hawk. Mate you were the best team on the day and that’s it. Play the same team line ups in that GF 10 times and we would have won 9, it wasn’t our day and in fact we had an absolute shocker. By far Geelong was the best team that year, but being the best all year doesn’t guarantee you a premiership. Finals footy is a different ball game all together…. it’s unique and very unlike all other sports around the globe. Sudden death finals footy, it’s a beautiful thing we got going on here in the land down under. Best game in the world and proud to be an Australian, the inventors of the beautiful game!

                neil demons delight · 07/04/2019 at 06:30

                Great read by you two ,enjoyed the memories

                  DEE · 07/04/2019 at 10:34

                  Thanks NDD, your mob Melbourne are well and truly over due for a premiership. Was their last one in the early 80's I'm guessing…. I know their last GF appearance was back in 2000 I think and if I'm not mistaken NDD, the team that broke Demon hearts on that last day in September were the Bombers who also coincidently just put your side 0-3 to start the season. Worst start you could have possibly imagined after a very impressive campaign last year. But never the less mate… the season is long and I bloody hope they turn things around next week up in Sydney. Melbourne I believe is still a top 4 side I reckon or there abouts. All the best for the RED and BLUE this year and all the best to your SC team this year…. Cheers mate!

                    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2019 at 11:25

                    Melbourne's last premiership was 1964 against Collingwood, we then lost to Hawthorn in 1988 after being one of only three teams to beat them that year and of cause the 2000 GF against Essendon, so we had the misfortune of playing the two most dominant teams of those years in the GF. I still think our best chance was in 87 when we lost the prelim to Hawthorn, we had won seven in a row and if we had been able to hold on in that game I feel we would have given Carlton a run for their money.

                    neil demons delight · 07/04/2019 at 12:04

                    I was there in 64 John when froggie kicked the winner as a back pocket Norrn Smith gave him a serve for playing out of position. but i agree John 88 was our moment Hore should never have been dropped and Vander will make a huge difference Go dees

        Derek · 07/04/2019 at 12:01

        My dad owned a sports store in the Riverina and Peter Crimmins was the Puma sales rep and would drop in a few times a year. He would always give me hawthorn stuff. I was 10 when he died. His replacement was Peter Knights. Went to the the 1978 GF, I have been a one eyed hawk ever since, even though my grandfather played for Melbourne.

        It almost became boring in the 80’s, another grand final!! But after 1991 success it was a long time to wait to 2008. I was so confident we would win 2008, I felt it was Crawford’s time and the AFL gods would be kind. Omg Stewart Dew!!!!! He had 10 minutes that every Geelong fan and player would still be having nightmares about. I know Cam Mooney hasn’t got over it.

        I took my 10 and 12 year old sons to the 2012 GF. One of the worse days ever. Fortunately we were able to get to the next 3.

        It’s tough living in Sydney, and putting up with all the “bandwagon” supporters in this city.

          Derek · 07/04/2019 at 12:04

          I think I started hating the Cats even before I supported the Hawks.

          Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 16:43

          I’ve got a photo of me Knightsy when I was a kid at a sports store in Albury in Mate st, was an idol of mine growing up

DEE · 07/04/2019 at 02:21

Par score for this week community?

    DavidC · 07/04/2019 at 07:31

    Hard to say. There has been some big scores but also a lot of dud scores. I think there is going to be a wide range of scores with some making big moves up the table.

    nickgonzalez771 · 07/04/2019 at 11:01

    As David said it’s all over the place this week but I would imagine 2200-2300

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 11:26

    I’d looking at about a 2250 and will win about half my leagues. Just so average this year.

    The teams with Neale, Lloyd, Whitfield, Sheed, Fyfe must be thinking this is an easy game

    Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 12:29

    I think 2250-2300. I’m heading to that score with Rocky Drew and Smith’s score

    JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2019 at 12:34

    I'm seeing a lot of big scores in most of my leagues, the par would be at least 2250, so I will be 100 short of that. I have a feeling I'm in for a long year, I seem to get the rookies right, but last year and this year have stuffed up at least three premium/mid priced players, which have me on the back foot from the start.

Defying_Madness · 07/04/2019 at 03:39

Oops had neale as VC and no way to loophole

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 04:35

    bugger!

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 11:08

    You gotta think ahead mate. Those little things make a difference

Northerner · 07/04/2019 at 07:21

Well, I think I blew a chance to get right up at the chocolates end. Currently projected 2407 using Danger’s VC score. However, made the decision this week to trade Heeney for long term ruck cover in Lycett. Was sitting at 1100 after last round and should still elevate, but what if? Oh well, always saw this as an outcome and it was a long term play including bye structure. I just need Lycett to average 90 (still a risk) and for one of Grawndy to get a one to 2 week niggle to keep them out at some stage and it might still pay off.

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 11:06

    Watching yesterday, Lycett is not Ports #1 ruck. Ryder still is.

Northerner · 07/04/2019 at 07:27

How about we share our pod of the year so far?

Boak for me. Started in 2% of teams.

    TheBenchmark25 · 07/04/2019 at 07:56

    I went with two pods that I thought would finish top 6 in their position
    1/Trav Boak
    2/ Daniel Rich
    So far so good

      DEE · 07/04/2019 at 08:20

      well done knackers!

      Blueth · 07/04/2019 at 12:25

      Anyone who starts Rich has titanium balls or is playing their first year.

    hedski · 07/04/2019 at 09:54

    Hurn doing well for me.
    Darling not going so well.

    NoLanguage96 · 07/04/2019 at 11:32

    Salem was my big POD only in 1%. Averaged 99 with the pathetic start by Melbourne I'll take that

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 11:58

    Is Macrae a pod?

    Think he was because of his price.

    SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 12:40

    Hurn is doing ok
    Whitfield was kinda a POD just a tad over 20% of teams before round 1 now at over 30%. May even go even higher after this weekend. For some coaches who can't afford Lloyd, they will look at him as a cheaper option with similar output as Lloyd.

    Swans2012 · 07/04/2019 at 13:18

    I think my main pod was going mid priced, started all of Williams smith Libba Brayshaw brouch English Billings and Moore. Thought I’d keep it interesting lol

Northerner · 07/04/2019 at 08:05

Just had a look at the ladder. There are some big teams outside the eight you wouldn’t have picked going in. It’s only early but there’s a lot more in that group than you would expect.

Brisbane have some belief don’t they. They look like the Doggies of 16, Tigers of 17 and Eagles of 18 in the sense of team belief and solidarity. If they can keep their talls fit they should make the eight comfortably.

    COREYSC · 07/04/2019 at 09:17

    Geelong playing with the same belief

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 09:34

    Still a young and newish team you would think and it’s still early, would love to see how they go on the second half of the season. I agree with you Northener, they are playing with belief…. and the important key to that aspect is the COACH. Chris Fagan at the moment is doing a brilliant job up there with the Lions, deserves a bit of credit. Brisbane believe in him and in the system he’s been trying to implement, apparently they refer to him as the people’s man. Chris Fagan wasn’t even in a coaching role when they plucked him from Hawthorn and signed him up, I think Luke Hodge had a bit of involvement in all this and so far the story is so good…. a lot of youth and strong belief with in the team, finish in the top eight? Massive tick for the year definitely, if Fagan and his man can play finals this year that’s a win for the club in just about all aspects. Before the season started I thought a good year or a pass mark for Brisbane for the year would be around 9 wins, they only managed to notch up 5 wins last year although nearly half of their losses was in close games or were right in the contest for the majority of those defeats. Can’t wait to see how their season unfolds…. 2019 should be a very interesting year mate, the competition is so even and unfortunately there will be a hand full of good teams who will just miss out! Bring it on I say, can’t bloody wait…. Carrrrrnnnn GEELONG!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 11:56

    If you look at it.

    It is the teams who have adapted quickest to the new 6 6 6 rules that have started well.

    Cats, lions, dogs, giants.

    Those that havent – dees fallen down the ladder as there is too much space in their back line for an opposition fwd.

    Tiges found out by not being able to use Grigg anymore and trading away depth to get Lynch.
    Got injuries this year, struggling to cover.

Brn · 07/04/2019 at 08:58

Ok so i was abused like hell in preseason for saying I thought Darling would be lucky to average 80.

"Arent you the idiot that said darling wont average over 80, why would anyone listen to you" etc etc..

With a current average of 71, where is this keyboard warrior now?

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 09:52

    3 words

    Still early days

Hawks · 07/04/2019 at 09:44

Dunkley will outscore McRae and Walters will outscore Fyfe LOCK IT IN 😂

Matt · 07/04/2019 at 09:52

Is Dahlhaus a potential top 6 forward? Or is it better to go Worpel?

    nankthetank · 07/04/2019 at 10:04

    Dahlhaus not guaranteed to be top 6 but looks safer than worpel atm

    Dermin8r · 07/04/2019 at 21:19

    Dahlhaus will be top 6-8, Clarko already said he will rest Worpel throughout the season, and he;ll likely average 90ish.

      Peter · 08/04/2019 at 07:25

      Do you think daniel will be a top 6 forward?

kinglear009 · 07/04/2019 at 10:13

Man, Whitfield is a sensational footballer. He doesn't seem to be playing in any definable role – he leaves no blade of grass on the field untouched – but his work rate is unparalleled.

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 10:59

    GUN

    Ja191 · 07/04/2019 at 11:26

    Yeah he was similar last year but his defensive role meant he would get a lot of uncontested possessions not giving a lot of points. Seemed to move a lot closer to the ball this year and getting more points, a beast no doubt

    NoLanguage96 · 07/04/2019 at 11:30

    Shattered I chose Laird instead of him

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 12:00

    1 of the 7

Bells · 07/04/2019 at 10:22

So glad I ditched Martin – he's got his $$ – was always going to go like this after he did.
Tigers will be bottom half of the ladder this year with injuries finally catching up with them at the exact time they ditched all their depth to pay Martin and Lynch.
Now…how to get Whitfield in….Maybe Simpson for Whitfield or do I back Simpson to turn it around?

    DEE · 07/04/2019 at 10:35

    Agreed!!!

      DEE · 07/04/2019 at 10:43

      got the same dilemma with you there cobber…. Whitfield is a must this year with out doubt, average wise he's looking like a top 2 DEF this year and wouldn't surprise me if he finished #1 in DEF. Didn't like the look of Simpson either yesterday and was so close to trading him out last minute to Lloyd but decided to HOLD him and give him another chance redeem himself…. Sorry LekDog but I reckon Mr. Sleeves man is out this week sorry to say, he's gonna drop down around $30K this week I think…. Bye Bye Kade and GO CATSSS!!!

    Hoot · 07/04/2019 at 11:05

    A lot more of the pie is being shared with the lies of Walsh, Newman etc.. with his form, I just cant see Simpson averaging in the mid 90's but that may still be enough to be a top 6 Def. Hopefully im wrong for all owners sake.

NoLanguage96 · 07/04/2019 at 11:38

Dusty to LDU and Greene to Constable looking like the right moves were made. WTF is wrong with Martin? Looked disinterested yday.

Ridley being a late in was the cherry on top!

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 13:05

    Dusty got two very close tags. Didn’t handle them

    Was 38pts in first 15 mins. Downhill from there

JEL · 07/04/2019 at 11:49

The Gabba was a graveyard for my SC team.
Rocky, Andrews & Drew all 40 or less.

Rob · 07/04/2019 at 13:12

Field Collins or Scrimshaw?

    redherringfc · 07/04/2019 at 13:43

    I’d go Collins.

      Rob · 07/04/2019 at 13:48

      Was leaning towards him, thanks!

Yeahnah · 07/04/2019 at 13:18

Harris Andrews ouch.. also need to find a way to get Neale in asap

    kinglear009 · 07/04/2019 at 14:01

    What happened Andrews? I heard he was on Westhoff, who also went missing last night!

      Yeahnah · 07/04/2019 at 14:13

      Not sure mate, I guess that's what you have to expect from key position players! Hopefully can bounce back next week

TOPHAWK1 · 07/04/2019 at 14:53

Macrae will be on sale in a few weeks if this keeps up. 9 SC at 1/4 time. WOW.

    hedski · 07/04/2019 at 14:53

    And the vc curse strikes again

    KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 14:54

    I'm sure he'll lift

      TommyC99 · 07/04/2019 at 15:29

      He lifted, but not enough. A lot of his points have come during last quarters first few weeks, hopefully he can have a big second half

    Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 15:51

    I’m over this game, if ever there was a game that he’d go off in it would be this one!!!

dontblushbaby · 07/04/2019 at 15:52

I should have put the VC on Libba instead on Macrae

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 16:27

    Doing the business for you now dbb, gee he can score fast.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 16:43

If Macrae was alive in the first qtr he would be on 160+ bout now

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 16:50

    Great redemption though after a nothing first quarter.

Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 16:48

Love you Libba…you quirky little bugger!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 16:51

    Tackle machine

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 16:56

      Brissy game killed me
      Drew and Rocky plop plop. Up against a guy who has Neale, Boak, Rozee, Walsh, Collins POD's all cracking scores. Nothing I can do

        Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:03

        Yeah mate I had Collins benched , Clarke with the E and Scrimshaw on field down back..bad idea.
        Hopefully Rocky's cleared of concussion for ya next week.

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 17:14

          Hopefully yes. but looks like him to Libba is not a bad move to make. He looked fat and slow against the manic Brisbane team.

            Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:21

            Haven't watched that one yet, was he copping the tag from Robbo before his hit?…looked like he hit McLuggage's hip or elbow with his head.

              ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 18:11

              It was more a run with not a solid tag. Rock looked real slow late in 2nd and early in 3rd

    Maverick_ · 07/04/2019 at 18:16

    loving libba right now russty! his BE will be rock bottom after a 75 128 and now a 150.

Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 16:52

Great to see Libba back to his best. Sux I didn’t start him however.

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:12

    Very happy with Libba Holty, anyone you could get rid of for him?…he will be a bit dearer next week though.

      Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 22:31

      Don’t have anyone I want to trade for him. All my mids are performing. However Rocky went down but if only out for 1 week, I’ll hold

TommyC99 · 07/04/2019 at 16:54

Macrae lazy 135pt odd 3 quarters. Was worried at quarter time with the C on him. Dunkley is starting to become a real worry though. Just doesnt get the ball enough to be a consistent scorer

    Dermin8r · 07/04/2019 at 21:16

    I did a corrective this week to turn Dunkley into Dahhlhaus (and Goldy to Grundy)

KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 17:01

After a massive game from Libba and Macrae as well as a nice 80 from Collins I've finished on 2432 with nobody left. How's everyone else tracking so far?

    Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 17:03

    That is very good KS. That would be top 3% I would think

    AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 17:03

    Will struggle to make 2250 mate, Rockliff, Drew and Setterfield all really hurt me

      AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 17:04

      Excellent score this week, above par for sure

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 17:10

      Same trio Aurora

        AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 17:34

        Yeah it would've hurt a lot of people this week

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:04

    Great score Sinny, no idea yet here mate, have Scrimshaw and Goldy on now and Fyfe and Parker still to come. Well done cracking 2400…huge!

      KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 17:13

      Cheers mate really happy with my score after 2080 and 2180 the first two games. Good luck with your team!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 17:07

    1898/18 C Macrae if 139 is his final scaled score. Worpel, Fyfe, Wilkie, Parker to come.

    TommyC99 · 07/04/2019 at 17:11

    Pretty mediocre. 2106 with Scrimshaw and Parker to play. Dusty, crisp, drew and Dunkley to a lesser extent particularly disappointing. So annoyed after being 1006 from 9 before the Richmond game without my C having played yet. Was looking like a good score but thats supercoach. Still got 30 trades and can guarantee will be trading this week. Bye Bye dusty

      Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:41

      Dusty to Libba Tommy…make some cash?

        TommyC99 · 07/04/2019 at 18:40

        That trade sure is juicy. Was hoping to go dusty – Sloane but i think dusty will drop too much and i only have 27k in the bank. I watched the whole game today because i had Macrae C, Libba looked ridiculously good. Absolute beast

    Yeahnah · 07/04/2019 at 17:17

    Nice one mate that's huge. I can see top score being close to 2500 with a lot of popular picks doing well, I'm on 2021 with Fyfe, Scrimshaw and Parker left, hopefully can crack 2300

      KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 17:20

      Awesome mate 2300 will be a good score, won't be surprised if the winner gets around 2600 with the big scores this round. Unfortunately Setterfield and Drew both getting 30's robbed me of a chance at 2500.

    Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 17:22

    Nice KSinny. Sitting on 2023, projected 2349

      Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:42

      That'll be a nice score this week Hawk, not that high for me but should move up the Rankings a bit hopefully.

    The Ranger · 07/04/2019 at 17:54

    Gonna be about 2350 for me.
    Nice score Sinny.

      Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 18:35

      I think you have me in our cash league Ranger. Rocky crippled me this week.
      Well done

        The Ranger · 07/04/2019 at 20:30

        Think you spoke too soon mate…Fyfe going down means you got me by 9!

    SC_Donkey · 07/04/2019 at 20:31

    · 1 minute ago

    Was projected 2304 I think I just made 2200+ thanks to Burgess, Scott and Parker and maybe Dusty too. Not sure now who to replace Dusty with Neale or Libba bank the cash for future upgrade. Only think worries me with Libba if can stay on the field all year.

Yeahnah · 07/04/2019 at 17:04

Thanks to my opponent having Libba I now need Fyfe to score 145 to win… go on Fyfe big fella

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:07

    150+…for Capitan Fyfe this week YN 🙂

      Brn · 07/04/2019 at 18:44

      Ton if he is lucky sadly

    Saritz · 07/04/2019 at 19:24

    Knocked out 🙁

Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 17:24

Keep going Goldmember..big last quarter please, and Scrimshaw, at least make your prediction please.

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 17:27

Well played this week Derek, I need Parker to go 110 plus to have any chance of winning

    Rocksta_ · 07/04/2019 at 18:14

    I need a 144 from Fyfe to beat James in your league AB. Not going to happen as is on 31 mid way through the second. Libba got James home with his massive 150. Well done James.

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 19:57

    Thanks mate. We were both just average this week.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 20:26

      Yeah, wasn't amazing from either of us. Although it could be worse, someone i'm playing in one of my leagues had Neale as captain and only managed a score of 2170, not sure how thats possible tbh.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 18:14

Setters, Drew, Rockliff, Parker and Wilkie 😂 I'm done

    Brn · 07/04/2019 at 18:42

    Lots of/most people have setters, drew and parker on field.

    Rockliff hurts though.

    Its one week. I was ready to throw in the towel after the first week, but expect to be top 3000 after this week. Good luck

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 19:39

      Cheers bud

Dermin8r · 07/04/2019 at 18:14

The Chad was Great!

Jess · 07/04/2019 at 18:36

Will 2350 be above par this week?

    Ja191 · 07/04/2019 at 18:42

    2300 looks par

      _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 18:59

      Im thinking 2200-2250 is a more reasonable par. There are a lot of premos and rookies who threw up spuds

        JEL · 08/04/2019 at 01:02

        I got 2212 and still went 1500 places backwards.
        Only won 4/10 leagues as well.
        Must be a lot of big scores around.

    redherringfc · 07/04/2019 at 20:13

    Well above.

Brn · 07/04/2019 at 18:38

Macrae captain over dangerfield wasnt worth the stress

    cash_cows · 07/04/2019 at 20:27

    Just don't pay too much attention next time haha
    It'll just seem like smooth sailing.

_Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 19:01

FYFE HEAD COLISION

Who has the C on him?

    Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 19:09

    Yep, there goes my week…oh well.

      Boris_Baconbeer · 07/04/2019 at 19:23

      Bad Luck Russty. Seems every year the last four or five+ years, I've lost someone in the third round. Mine was Rocky this time.

        Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 19:27

        Just the way it goes Boris…it's a bloody cruel game this Supercoach…ruined my fun this week but hoping at least the Saints can win.
        Bad luck with Rocky too mate.

      _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 19:34

      Ouch that one hurts mate. We were neck and neck until this game. You with the C on fyfe and my POD in ryan going massive. Always next week

Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 19:02

Fyfe knocked out on 65

    Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 19:11

    That’s horrible. Hope no one in the community had the C on him. Playing Ranger in our cash league and he needs 73 from Fyfe to pip me. Will be interesting to see if they give him a few extra points as Rocky was KO’d on 46 but finished with 36. Either way, hope both will be healthy for next week.

      Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 19:22

      Hes already going down in pts Holty. Im playing Tophawk in 2 leagues he has him as capt. But l have him to.

        Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 19:37

        Damn. Hawk started the season strong as well. How have you started?

          Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 20:29

          Ended with 2314. What could have been. Won all my leagues but was hoping to go up a few rungs…ohwell

BlueBaggerJosh · 07/04/2019 at 19:02

First Rocky now Fyfe, i give up

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 19:55

    Yeah man know how you feel on that front

Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 19:06

I don’t have Fyfe but hate to see that happen.

kinglear009 · 07/04/2019 at 19:23

Fyfe's knockout was as bad as I've seen for a year at least. Really devestated for him trying to walk it off when his feet couldn't even support him. A true warrior.

    DavidC · 08/04/2019 at 06:38

    You'd think he would have to miss a week.

Brn · 07/04/2019 at 19:35

Im happy i scored 2320 considering i had setterfield, drew, parker and fyfe on field. Hoping to go up in ranks still.

    _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 19:51

    Tipping 2320 is still quite a bit above par. Plenty of premos and rooks spudding this week

Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 20:01

Hey Fellas, Nightmare of a week for me but i'll continue to soldier on, should've gotten around 2350 but ended up with 2188, courtesy of Captain Fyfe getting ko'd.
Don't lose heart and give up…it's just the luck of the game, still plenty of time to bounce back.
In hindsight, if it's any help to anyone, I probably should've taken Dangers VC score…classic example, but wanted to come home strong with a big Captain's score, not to be lol.
Thought I'd jump up the rankings a bit this week but doubt I will now, anyways, plenty of time to go…just gotta deal with the adversity and move on I guess.
Well done to all the coaches who dropped big scores this week…:)

    Yeahnah · 07/04/2019 at 20:15

    It's a bit like that sometimes Russty, let's just hope Fyfe is back next week for the derby

    Sixtybloody6 · 07/04/2019 at 20:21

    Not taking a C score of 120+ is pure stupidity from a veteran supercoacher like yourself. You'll miss out of 30 points if fyfe went 158 so what's the point in risking it when you can take it right there and then.

    Not sure why you are mentioning rank. You play for leagues.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 20:29

      Oh well…maybe I'm just stupid then?…or like the idea of coming home strong with a big Cap's score in the last round.
      I may be a veteran but don't claim to be an expert.. I don't always like doing the predictable thing in SC or in life, as I'm sure you don't either, but that's all good.
      I still play for both of course as every serious supercoacher probably is, I just get more fun out of the Leagues, than the overall rank 🙂
      Glad I could bring you out of retirement…haven't seen you around for awhile 🙂

        Sixtybloody6 · 07/04/2019 at 20:34

        Yeh I get an alert when a stupid post gets put up. Thought I'd check in, and now I'm out for another month or so.

        P.s. rank inside 1k again. Looking better this year too. Good luck JR flogs, pack of nuffies.

          Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 20:40

          Haha, see you when you get back mate, I see you still can't break your old habit of insulting everyone on here and gloating about your rank.
          Hope it works out better for you than it did last year.

          _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 20:40

          Welcome back ya flog. Dont let the door hit you on your way out

          This is real hypercritical coming from someone who made the stupid mistake of running out of trades weeks early and plummeting in rankings last year.

          Not that it matters but 120 doesnt hit my VC cut off and like rusty i passed on dangers score only to get a better score out of mcrae. You win some, you lose some. On to next week

          ZzZCalintZzZ · 07/04/2019 at 21:10

          Oh did woof woof run outta trades last year and slide like a turd? Think I told him he would just after the byes had finished. Inside 1k right now hahaaa don't mean anything, wonder if he learns to keep 7+ trades in the bank after the byes or its bye bye rank

      AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 20:29

      Actually you'd be missing out on 60 points going by the hypothetical you mentioned. Personally i think 120+ is a bit low to take as VC, my cut off point is 135. Don't think its ridiculous to look for better captain scores

        Nice_Person · 07/04/2019 at 20:32

        120 + 60 isn't 158 mate

          AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 20:58

          but 316 (158 x 2) – 256 (128 x 2) works out to be 60, which is the math i was going off. Taking Dangers captain score v taking a potential of 316 from Fyfes is a difference of 60 points

            _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 21:04

            Assuming fyfe scored 158 its 158×2 which is 316 then tou add on dangers 128 totalling 444.

            Compare that to taking dangers 128 its 128×2 + 158 which totals 414

            In the end it is only a 30 point difference

              AuroraBorealis?! · 07/04/2019 at 21:10

              Oh of course, wasn't accounting for the fact that their individual scores would be included as well

            Holty01 · 07/04/2019 at 21:15

            Hi mate. A lot of people make this mistake when doing the maths.
            Danger C (128×2) + Fyfes (158)
            =414
            Fyfe C (158×2) + Dangers (128)
            =444

        JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2019 at 21:16

        N_P is correct in the hypothetical AB, Danger 128 x 2 = 256 + Fyfe 158 = 414. Fyfe 158 x 2= 316 + Danger 128 = 444 so 30 pts difference.

    Shake_n_bake · 07/04/2019 at 20:33

    Played u in 1 league Russty. I have fyfe aswell would have loved for him to get 100+.

    hedski · 07/04/2019 at 20:38

    I thought you had me covered easily Russty, only checked scores a couple of minutes ago, 2239 for me.
    Bad luck about Fyfe mate I missed the Freo/Saints game so haven't seen the hit yet.

      Russty_ · 07/04/2019 at 20:44

      Haven't checked any results yet mate but I'm sure they're not good, maybe tomorrow when the shock has worn off ,lol.
      Well done for the win bud.

    Maverick_ · 07/04/2019 at 20:52

    i pulled off a 2320 this week & overrall i am happy enough with that.
    The SC gods can be so cruel i am glad i locked in dangers 128 i had a few opponents risk the C on fyfe.

    Hawk131415 · 07/04/2019 at 21:16

    Got ya Russty 🤣

One Touch Wonder · 07/04/2019 at 20:06

Held Merrett. Held Heeney. Held Mills. Held Goldy. Held Mundy. Held Dusty.

Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. Cross.

Still have 30 trades. Tick.

    Nice_Person · 07/04/2019 at 20:10

    Dusty get another go?

      Hawks · 07/04/2019 at 20:11

      Couldn't go with Dusty again

      One Touch Wonder · 07/04/2019 at 20:21

      Yes. The SHARK MOVE is to hold him.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 20:32

        will need cover next week as likely to get a week or two off.

    Hawks · 07/04/2019 at 20:13

    Well done

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/04/2019 at 20:26

7 reasons why.

Whitfleld
Willams
Macrae
Brayshaw
Grundy
Dunkley
Crouch(s)

6 1/2 out of 7.

Dunk just needs to lift a bit. Little libba being a ball hog 🙂

Vinny · 07/04/2019 at 20:31

Scored 2404 and can you believe I lost one of my h2h’s with someone who scored 2440. Very happy with the score though! Had many duds, with Crisp, Drew and Parker and was so close I’m going Neale Captain, but went safe with danger!

What’s par score for this week?

    _Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 20:33

    I thought i went massive with 2375. Thats enormous mate! Like you tho i won all but 1 and lost to a mammoth 2439

Matt · 07/04/2019 at 20:32

Thought I just about avoided all the carnage and on track for 2500, then Fyfe goes down! 🙁

Still ended on 2453 so hoping to move up a little more

_Kyle · 07/04/2019 at 20:36

Who is happy with their PODs at this stage? My main POD ryan has been decent without being anything special but tonight knocked out a mammoth 156! Won me a h2h or 2 so absolutely over the moon woth him

TBone_9 · 07/04/2019 at 21:01

Ended with 2385 this week. Happy I held my trades even though I was tempted to go Billings to Moore to free up some cash. As long as all the rooks keep their position in the team, might not need to make a trade again this week. I’ll be keeping an eye on Stack this weekend, looked like a good little player in his first game! Hoping Dunkley can lift a little bit too, not getting enough of the pill at the moment to score what we are looking for from him. Hope everyone else enjoyed a mostly great weekend of footy 🙂

Finnius · 07/04/2019 at 21:02

2401. Feeling good about this year and my team is sliding up the rankings after a few annoying rookie scores. Hopefully will still have 30 trades in the tank come round 5 or so and can be pretty aggressive with my trade strategy. How’d everyone else end up?

    TBone_9 · 07/04/2019 at 21:23

    Great score Finn! Who’d you go for captain this week? Yeah I’m hoping to be in the exact same place with trades too mate!

      Finnius · 07/04/2019 at 21:33

      Took Danger’s VC mate. I have a pretty safe limit of 125+

    The Ranger · 08/04/2019 at 09:23

    Great start Fin, keep it up mate.

Hawks · 07/04/2019 at 21:06

Scored 2301 with Fyfe as captain.

Most things worked well, except had Drew & Parker on field with better rookie scores on the bench, but based on the first 2 weeks wouldn't and couldn't have gone against Drew & Parker.

Hope Fyfe is good to go next week, so I can just watch the rookies fatten up, then maybe trade in Sydney Stack the following week.

KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 21:31

Geez just jumped from 29k overall rank to 5k. Pretty happy bout that 😂

    Derek · 07/04/2019 at 23:33

    Nice. What was your weekly rank this week

      KSinny · 07/04/2019 at 23:39

      1297

Andy · 07/04/2019 at 21:36

Dahlhaus or Kelly for Dunkley?

    Sam_01 · 07/04/2019 at 21:53

    Kelly if he is fit and firing

JohnDJ59 · 07/04/2019 at 21:45

My trade plans just came crashing down, Simpson went down even more than I thought he would and now I can't do a straight swap for Whitfield.

    derek · 07/04/2019 at 22:46

    you can't be buying players who have increased in value. you run out of cash that way.

    be patient and buy the fallen premiums

    some fallen premiums will be available in a few weeks time

    Hold Simpson, only 3 weeks into the year he will come good.

      Pranav · 08/04/2019 at 06:27

      I can’t remember if it was you but didn’t you mention last year that you will be able to afford on average 500k for each upgrade you make

        Saritz · 08/04/2019 at 07:37

        Whoever it was, it was just an ideal range. For example, if you got Grundy or Macrae for $600k, that would be a good get! But at various stages throughout the year you can pick fallen premiums up in that 500k range +/- 50k. Thypically you can achieve this in two trades by waiting for to rookies to fatten up to about 250-300k and downgrade one to and fresh rookie and use that cash you made to upgrade the other.

          Pranav · 08/04/2019 at 19:56

          That’s fair enough only thing i would be scared of is paying top price for initial upgrades and having to scrape the barrel for the last few upgrades in your team

Sam_01 · 07/04/2019 at 21:57

2345 for the round, traded hore to wilke don’t really know why hot on the trigger
6745 overall score ranked 2628 top 1%
Unsatisfied with my steele,Dunkley and treloar selection
Just don’t like the potential Adams inpact on treloar with beams now in the team aswell, also dunno if Steele will truly breakout this year given his disposal numbers and a more defensive game

    Maverick_ · 07/04/2019 at 22:35

    Im regretting the selection of treloar i watched the pies v eagles game very closely.
    he started on the bench and from what i saw he didn't attend as many centre bounces as usual started inside the forward 50 at times.
    doesn't help when treloar needs 35+ touches to ton up as his DE% is avg at best.
    adams coming back in looks to have impacted him and his role… I don't have neale, fyfe or macrae and it hurts but for now i'll have to suck it up i can't afford the sideways trade of premiums.

    I also have dunkley again not sure i should be trading him but dahls on my radar!

      Sam_01 · 07/04/2019 at 22:53

      Treloar quite often starts on the bench thought, idk why. After starting forward he was in the mids the rest of the game, pies got out classed by WC defenders so it’s hard to take much from the game, he can still score well with Adams in the side it’s just the extra inclusion of beams makes it scary when there are other safer choices around!

        Sam_01 · 07/04/2019 at 23:22

        2nd point on treloar, he struggles with DE against good defensive teams where our forward isn’t up to much, and we aren’t playing a fast paced game. The upcoming backlines aren’t that impressive I reckon the pies and treloar will be putting up some good numbers on the scoreboard in the coming weeks

            I had him a couple of years back. Even his handballs miss targets and hit the turf. And then he dobs a cracking goal from 45 out on the run under pressure on either leg. Good luck, but I know and feel your pain.
