SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 3

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.

    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.

    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.

    • 04/04/2019 at 14:28
      Permalink

      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

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

    • 04/04/2019 at 20:14
      Permalink

      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.

    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

    • 04/04/2019 at 13:28
      Permalink

      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.

        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

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.

    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?!?!?

          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.

          • 04/04/2019 at 14:56
            Permalink

            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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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?

    • 04/04/2019 at 16:33
      Permalink

      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.

        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).

        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.

      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.

      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

      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.

        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….

      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

        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.

    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.

          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.

          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.

            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.

      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.

        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

            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 …

              Permalink

              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.

    • 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.

    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?

    • 04/04/2019 at 23:53
      Permalink

      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.

    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

    • 05/04/2019 at 10:22

        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.

        • 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

    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

    • 05/04/2019 at 12:45
      Permalink

      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.

      • 05/04/2019 at 12:58
        Permalink

        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.

        • 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.

            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.

      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

    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)?

    • 05/04/2019 at 14:21
      Permalink

      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

        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….

          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

        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.

      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?

      • 05/04/2019 at 17:11
        Permalink

        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.

      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..

    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.

      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.

      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.

    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.

    • 05/04/2019 at 17:01
      Permalink

      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

        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.

    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?

    • 05/04/2019 at 17:52
      Permalink

      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.

      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.

      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.

        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%

          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.

    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….

    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?

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

        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?

      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.

        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

    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.

    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!!!!

      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.

        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.

            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.

              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!!!

        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.

      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.

    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?

      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.

      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

        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.

        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.

    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.

    • 06/04/2019 at 11:36
      Permalink

      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

      • 06/04/2019 at 11:59
        Permalink

        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

          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

            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

              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

                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

    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?

Reckon Billings won’t average more than 85 and Moore should be around that ballpark if he can stay on the park.

        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.

    Simmo is NOT in sleeves.

    Does that mean Rich has been traded in?

  • 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.

      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!

          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.

        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.

      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.

    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.

      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.

        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.

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

    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!!!!

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

    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

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

        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!!

          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.

    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.

        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.

        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

      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.

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

      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…

        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.

      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.

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

        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

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

    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.

    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.

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