Is it just me or does this season already feel like week 15 and we’ve just been chewed up and spat out by the byes? Injuries, suspensions, underperforming premiums, and several rookies already looking like they’ve hit the wall are testing our resolve to remain calm. There’s no such thing as a quick fix in SuperCoach, as we say, ‘it’s a marathon, not a sprint” so keeping your head is paramount at the moment. That said, who doesn’t love contemplating a good complicated trade scenario to distract yourself from the boring 9 till 5 life?

This week water coolers all over the land were dominated by the Dusty saga. Questions regarding the severity of act aside, do they not have cameras in Sydney? How can there be 17 different angles of Cox tangling with Grimes the other week but all we’ve got is  grainy footage filmed on a Nokia 3310 from 80 metres away? Then there was Dusty’s “gesture” to (presumably) Shane Mumford. Now I’m not some fancy big city lawyer, but you don’t need to be a body language expert to decode that one. The AFL issued a please explain over the incident.

As always, big week by the boys. Damo has overtaken the podcast this week and I, for one, welcome our new West Australian overlord. Things are heating up in the rookie department as everyone is falling over. Get in inside word on who is pushing their case in Barron’s rookie report. Nailing your captain is key to a decent score in these early rounds, check out Damo’s captain article over here, and last, but certainly not least, you can click here to get on, in, and around Magnificent Matty’s cheat sheet

The News

As U2 famously sung, “Thursday, Bloody Thursday” (don’t fact check that). The Swans host the Dees tonight and the Dees have given us Gawn owners reason to break out in cold sweats by selecting Braydon Preuss for his club debut. Neal-Bullen has been dropped. Billy Stretch is in for Kade Kolo…???…nij (head knock). The Swans are handing a debut to Justin McInerney (DEF – 117.3k). His pace and willingness to take the game on won himself plenty of fans on the back of 15 disposals in JLT2. While it didn’t translate to a massive SC score (51SC), he’s one to watch. Veteran Kieran Jack will play his first game of the year. McVeigh (quad) and Hayward (jaw) are the ones to make way.

Collingwood have dropped tagger Levi Greenwood for Travis Varcoe tonight. Jason Johannisen will play his first game of the season, Lewis Young is the one to make way. Jack Henry is back for the Cats after a week out 

Callan Ward will lineup for the Giants for the first time this year. Essendon have dropped Aaron Francis for some reason in one of four changes. Cale Hooker is amongst the rather uninspiring ins. Allen Christensen will have his first run for the year at Brisbane. Some big changes at the Tigers as injuries and suspension continue to hit the club hard. Trent Cotchin and Jayden Short are injured, Dusty is rubbed out for a week, and they’ve dropped three more. Dylan Grimes returns from suspension. Houli and Josh Caddy return from injuries, and there’s a debut for Jack Ross (MID – 117.3k). Shai Bolton (FWD – 146.6k) and Liam Baker (FWD – 162.1k) are cheaper options to keep an eye on if they impress. Port will go in unchanged for the match. For the derby out West, Nat Fyfe is out despite my famous chicken soup and around the clock rubdowns. Lachie Schultz is back in. Josh Rotham is straight out for the returning Liam Duggan. Bailey Scott is being “rested” for North after doing nothing for us for two weeks. Paul Ahern finally gets a game. The struggling Bryce Gibbs has been dropped by the Crows.    

Only the two games on Sunday. There’s a possible debut for Liam Stocker (MID – 126.3k) at Carlton. Charlie Curnow is back in after a week out. Gold Coast have added four players to their squad for the game. There’s no listed outs for the Saints and Hawthorn yet, but you’d expect at least one change for each as Jack Steven and Jarryd Roughead will return. 

The House of Evil

Rookie prices are beginning to shift so it’s important now to not only keep track of when their breakeven matches up their average (a sign you should trade a rookie) but to do the same with premiums who have copped a price loss. Watch for when their breakeven becomes achievable again so you can snag them at their lowest price point.

These rookies come with a free frogurt! (that’s good)

Subject to selection – Few unlikely names
Bold – On the bubble (2 games)
* – Played just the one game

These premiums come with Potassium Benzoate (that’s bad)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Lachie Neale is the obvious choice here but that 646k price tag may be out of reach for some. The weekly rookie lotto in our forward and defensive lines is beginning to hurt and needs to be addressed. If you didn’t start Lachie Whitfield this season you probably considered him at some point, and now you’re kicking yourself you didn’t bite the bullet. Other than repeated instances of leather poisoning, an average of almost 700m gained a week is whatever the standard is above elite. 11 marks, 6.6 R50’s and 4.6 I50’s a game over the first 3 weeks, Lachie is doing it all and hardly spending any time on the bench. He’ll be above 600k very soon. 

Hey Now, You’re A Draftstar!

The duck was finally broken last week! The lineup finished a respectable 53 points off the pace, settling for a 74th place finish. A $5.95 win if you entered into the $2 mini. 

RUC

Fremantle gave up 122DS to Rowan Marshall last week so I’m all over Tom Hickey (FWD / 10k) here who is a similar type of mobile ruck. Against Rory Lobb he should be able to take advantage. Speaking of Lobb (FWD / 11.3k), I don’t mind him as a solo ruck. We saw at GWS this suited him well and he put up 95 last week.   

On a single game slate Nathan Vardy (7.7k) will either tank your lineup with a 30DS or have a random value smashing game. If you’re entering multiple lineups chuck a dart in his direction but otherwise avoid.  

DEF

Adam Cerra (MID / 8.8k) stepped it up last week after Fyfe was hurt and has been earmarked this week by Ross to do the same. Taylin Duman (9.6k) played intercepter last weekend against the Saints, pulling in 7 marks (4 intercepts). I love watching Oscar Allen (FWD / 6.9k) play. We’ve yet to see him have a value crushing game but he’ll rip a game open one day.

West Coast are only second to Richmond in conceding points to running defenders this year. If you’ve played Luke Ryan (10k) in DFS before you’ll know just how frustrating he can be, but he went B-A-N-A-N-A-S last week with 136DS. Shannon Hurn (11.8k) has 4 scores over 90 in his past 5 against Freo. If he can hit those heights 11.8k is a steal for a player of his consistency. Brad Sheppard (12k) is $200 more than Hurn and has scored between 85-95 to start the season.

MIDS

Nat Fyfe is a massive loss for Freo. Looking at some in/out stats from 2018, David Mundy (FWD / 12.5k) averaged 12DS more in games without Fyfe. Ed Langdon (13k), Brad Hill (14.4k), and Michael Walters (11.6k) all saw drops between 10 and 13DS. Langdon is a much improved player though, so I don’t mind his selection. Travis Colyer (FWD / 8.8k) has had a nice start to his career in Fremantle colours and should see a bump without Fyfe. 

On the other side of the ledger, there’s nothing like a derby to play yourself back into form, Elliot Yeo (14k) has a 3 game average of 118 against West Coast and should be low owned after an underwhelming start to 2019. Jack Redden (13.6k) is in the same boat, a three game average of 125DS against Freo. Andrew Gaff (16.2k) is a Draftstars stud. If you can afford to pay up for him get on board. Bailey Banfield is an interesting out, he kept Luke Shuey (13.7k) quiet last year

FWD

Any off the DPP guys (Lobb, Mundy, Colyer) missed the cut elsewhere you can put them here. Not many more forwards I like. Freo have struggled against medium forwards so far this season, giving up 84DS to Jade Gresham and 103DS to Alex Sexton. Jack Petruccelle (6.8k) has had a reasonable fortnight and is a good salary saver.

Going with your lock of the week, Whitfield, traded out the sleeveless one, Simpson.

    SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 11:18

    The Lock is notorious for making me a rotten liar. Don't let me down, Lachie!

Connor · 11/04/2019 at 11:38

Is Libba a must-have? Trying to stick fat with Dunkley but its an easy DPP swing with cash in hand…

    SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 12:11

    I'm in the stick fat camp. Dunkley's 84 average is not the worst. Obv not getting those midfield minutes he was (despite Bevo promising us he would!) but he's a midfield injury away from stepping into a larger role

      John G · 11/04/2019 at 14:55

      Hey guys need help deciding.

      Cousins to LIBBA ?
      Or
      Atkins to LIBBA ?

        SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 16:23

        If you must, Atkins

Steeeve · 11/04/2019 at 11:38

Anyone moving on Hore? Will kick myself if Lockhart/Wagner put up a great score and lock themselves in the team for a few weeks…

    Danners · 11/04/2019 at 12:10

    I think it is important to have rookies generating cash early so moving Hore to one of those two would be a good move if you haven't used many trades

    SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 12:11

    Seeing how Stack goes myself

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 12:43

    The Lockhart DPP is very interesting

    Probably even more interesting if I can swing Duurmsa into guts. I wouldn’t even mind if Lockhart didn’t even play, gives me a rookie loophole across 3 lines. Very interesting.

      Steeeve · 11/04/2019 at 14:48

      Any chance Hore gets another run soon aka before byes when he can plump up? Is a travelling emergency

Rivo · 11/04/2019 at 11:43

Yes Kev, panic set in on Sunday night.

Have Fyfe, Dusty and T.Kelly.
Don’t have Neale, Whitfield or Boak.

Of these, Dusty is the likely trade. I can bench the other 2 for a week.

1. Dusty to Boak via DPP swing (T.Kelly to mids);
2. Dusty & S.Collins to Neale & Lockhart (M9);
3. Dusty & Setterfield via DPP to Whitfield & Moore/Schultz.

Which one?

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 12:51

    Dusty is only missing ONE week.

    Fyfe is out this week and maybe back the next week.

    Kelly is playing this week.

    Can you hold them?

    Are you trading zdudty because he is out or just because?

      Rivo · 11/04/2019 at 13:57

      Dusty has been awful. Can’t keep him at M4 with that output & cant see him getting near Top 10 from here.

      Want to hold the other 2.

      Krups · 11/04/2019 at 15:42

      Dusty can get stuffed. Dont care if he was playing. Hellloo Neale.

FirstTimeTrader · 11/04/2019 at 11:48

After holding the trigger last week Dusty has to go. 30 trades left. I have two options:
A) Out: Dusty, Cousins In: Neale and Miers (swing into FWD)
B) Out: Dusty, Cousins In: Libba and Dahl (swing into FWD)

A means I have Neale, B gives me a better overall team. I know that Libba will need to go at some stage or could be a M9. Dahl would be a keeper.
Other trade out option is B.Smith (DEF).

    Hawks · 11/04/2019 at 15:12

    Get Neale. He is a keeper that you wont have to trade up later.

    Think Libba & Dahl are likely both cash friendly stepping stones

Flynn · 11/04/2019 at 11:52

Fix my team please

Simmo, Williams, mills, Smith, Clark, duursma (Burgess, hore)

Macrae, fyfe, Oliver, treloar, sheed, b.crouch, Walsh, Constable (butters, scott, gibbons)

Grundy, westhoff (clark)

Danger, Dunkley, Moore, drew, Parker, setters (petrucelle, shlensog)

270 k in the kitty
Am thinking of going
Simmo- Whitfield, gibbons- Mumford via dpp which will make my forward line stronger and get setters off the field

Any other options would be appreciated

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 12:57

    Don’t mind the Gibbons to Mummy

    Simmo to Whitfield is luxury trading. How many trades have made already?

      Flynn · 11/04/2019 at 13:13

      Have only made one trade so far

        Derek · 11/04/2019 at 13:38

        It’s tough to trade a premium, especially when they bounce back the next week.

        I have made one trade, Mundy out last week. Was doing Simpson like numbers, even worse. Fyfe goes down, Mundy steps up, bang 109, plus Fyfe out this week, Mundy more TOG. Boom, he is going big again I just know it.

        As long as Simpson doesn’t do a Mundy, you will be ok.

        PS. Ward back this week, Pushes Taranto out of guts. Does this then effect Whitfield’s role?

    Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 13:43

    Mills to Lloyd/tuohey/whitfield ?
    I feel simmo can bounce back you chose him as a keeper. Mills just isn’t cutting it at all and scoring history/job role says he won’t..

      Derek · 11/04/2019 at 16:53

      Mills scored 109 last week was ok

      McVeigh to miss months. He will hopefully get a running role with kick ins. might even get to the midfield once Grundy gets back

BrownlowBoy · 11/04/2019 at 11:53

Duursma not trading with the main group at Port training.

    Freogirl · 11/04/2019 at 12:00

    Are you there.. What’s Duursma’s problem. And how’s Rocky looking on the field?

      BrownlowBoy · 11/04/2019 at 12:06

      Port will have a press conference at 12.30, should be able to find out more about both then.

        Freogirl · 11/04/2019 at 12:13

        Cheers.

    BrownlowBoy · 11/04/2019 at 12:06

    that's meant to be training*

      Holty01 · 11/04/2019 at 12:14

      Cheers BB. Will be interesting to see what transpires

    Connor · 11/04/2019 at 12:20

    Latest inside info I have is he's still playing, has pulled up a bit sore the past few weeks though…

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 12:59

    Port half back’s will have a field day against Tigers this week. I hope he plays and cashes in.

Danners · 11/04/2019 at 12:09

Hi lads
Debating on who are priorities to get in this week
My team currently
DEF: Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Scrimshaw, Clark, Duursma (Burgess, Hore)
MID: Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Treloar, Sloane, Walsh, Constable, Setterfield (Gibbons, Scott, Atkins)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
FWD: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Schultz, Parker (Balta, Petruccelle)
$2,700 in the bank and 30 trades

I'm considering going
Fyfe to Neale
Setterfield to Lockhart
Leaves me with $35,600

Not one for trading out premos but I don't want to make the mistake with Neale like Macrae last year. Setterfield to Lockhart is to give me a bit coin. Not sure on what to do otherwise
Thoughts?

    Hawks · 11/04/2019 at 15:18

    Keep Fyfe, he will likely be out 1 week, and will be top 8 at seasons end (at least by average).

    Nice to get Neale, but try and find another way

    TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 15:58

    Not concerned setterfield still has coin to make?

    paul · 12/04/2019 at 07:28

    Neale is on fire and I knew he would being the general in the midfield at Brisbane.In for a very big year, bonus is they
    have there backs up winning games.

    Johnny · 12/04/2019 at 10:24

    Don't get rid of Fyfe did you see his post on Instagram when he announced he wasn't playing.. He asked everyone not to trade him out of their supercoach teams, to me that shows he actually shows an interest in his scoring.. He will repay us when he comes back… HOLD!!

Corey · 11/04/2019 at 12:16

Haven’t used any trades so far this season is it worth downgrading Hore to Lockhart then Dunkley to Boak and next week downgrade a midfield rookie (likely Gibbons) to Stack
Or
Just wait and see and stick fat with Dunkley for now

    Holty01 · 11/04/2019 at 14:48

    Contemplating the same Corey. Boak and Dunkley are playing opposite roles to what I thought they would play.

John · 11/04/2019 at 12:53

Thinking o going Ridley and Setterfield (both under performers) to Marshall (three games +100 SC) and Stack (via DPP swings etc)

Can someone give good reasons why this is a dumb idea?

    Brn · 11/04/2019 at 15:12

    People have been burnt before bringing in a rookie early.
    Its risky but i've done it a few times and it has paid off.
    Risky – yes, but if he plays there isnt a problem. It is simply taking a risk and shouldn't be a 'banned trade'

dontblushbaby · 11/04/2019 at 12:59

Jack Ross to debut for the Tigers

Alferton · 11/04/2019 at 13:05

Thoughts please:

Option 1:Greene out Burgess swung forward and Lockhart in. Dusty out Neale in.

Option 2: Greene out Rozee in. Dusty out Bont in. Can’t afford to go to Neale.

Thanks.

    Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 13:45

    2 only because I like rozee JS and JS means cash rises $$$. Bont looks real good this year

      Brn · 11/04/2019 at 15:08

      Dusty to bont is too close to sideways for me. Bont can have some down scores too, and think he will drop a few 70ish scores like last year.

      If you dont mind sacrificing the trade, neale is best

    Hawks · 11/04/2019 at 15:22

    I'd go option 1.

    Its about getting the best premos in as soon as possible. Neale is definitely top 8 mid, Bont may be?

    I'd back the sure thing, in fact I did Dusty to Neale last week.

BrownlowBoy · 11/04/2019 at 13:10

Michael Voss said Duursma is okay, so should be right to play fingers crossed!

Rocky also good to go.

Richie Porte · 11/04/2019 at 13:15

Dusty must go, Libba or T Kelly.

    FCAbel · 11/04/2019 at 17:50

    Libba

Ken · 11/04/2019 at 13:38

Do we hold Fyfe? Or trade down to libba…

How much cash will Fyfe lose if he comes back doing average

    Ja191 · 11/04/2019 at 13:55

    price is only relevant once you trade him out. 169 breakeven and he could easily come back and bang out two 150s, hold for me only out the 1 week.

      Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 14:19

      Agree with JA, hold.

        Brn · 11/04/2019 at 15:03

        I'm happy getting rid of fyfe. Im ranked well and can't afford it. Trading to Neale and think its a perfectly acceptable move

Michael · 11/04/2019 at 14:01

Jayden Short & Gibbons to Lockhart (DEF) and Libba? Leaves 100k in the bank.

Will probably have to downgrade either Scott or Atkins next week to Stack

Also got Hore, however if i downgrade him I’m unable to bring in Libba for Short, therefore would need to get Rich (or any forward/defender for max 470k)

    Michael · 11/04/2019 at 14:02

    Also, the trade will put Butters on my bench and move Setterfield on field.

      Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 14:06

      I’m not sold on Lockharts JS or scoring potential his DPP is handy but for me that’s all I like about him..

Derek · 11/04/2019 at 14:04

If Fyfe played this week, Hutchings was waiting for him. If he plays next week, De Boer is waiting. Might be a good couple of weeks to miss.

I think he will be back next week, but might struggle to score with after effects of concussion and the De Boer tag.

If he misses 1, then come back with a 90 and 100, his price will be around $540k. Nice pick up in round 8 or 9. Tiger, Essendon, Lions and Pies before a really nice Round 12 bye.

Dusty to Libba this week will Bank $140k

Libba should price rise to about $500k by round 8. Libba to Fyfe will cost $40k. Net cost of $100k.

Compared to (hypothetically) Dusty to Fyfe now, cost $80k. Net savings of $180k, but cost an extra trade.

Is a trade worth $180k?

Add the Libba points this round instead of a rookie, say 50pts.

$180k and 50pts for a trade? Or is it 2 trades if you expect a Dusty to come good and be a keeper.

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 14:18

    100% right Fyfe misses a week, 1st week back at GWS drops 30k in week back then probably another 20k second week back. I would rather jump ship, doughnut this week like u said maybe a 90-100 week against GWS. I cant hold…welcome back maybe later it will cost myself 1 trade but need league wins!

    TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 15:54

    With the Libba bit, where did you get the net cost of 100k from? Probably a dumb question but trying to wrap my head around it as I’m considering dusty – libba this week

      Derek · 11/04/2019 at 16:48

      i have Dusty and was doing the maths if i wanted to go Dusty to fyfe (via Libba). I think Fyfe is an upgrade from Dusty.

      trade Dusty to Libba this week, then trade libba to Fyfe in 4-5 weeks. what would that cost.

      First trade puts $140k in my bank.

      second trade will cost me $40k

        Derek · 11/04/2019 at 16:50

        or just go Dusty to Fyfe now, will cost $80k.

        total cash savings of $180k

        but spend an extra trade.

        is a trade worth $180k…. plus the points i will get by not having a rookie this week?

          TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 18:00

          I’ve seen a lot of people comparing a trade worth to around 150-200k. Is that right? If so I think it is worth it

    Ja191 · 11/04/2019 at 17:32

    i think dusty made de boer look a lot better then he is. The likes of danger and fyfe should destroy him

Tommo76 · 11/04/2019 at 14:20

Hey guys, so like many i have to trade out Dusty. Which of these should i go with.
– Libba
– Merrett
– TKelly
– Sloane (but would have to trade Hore to make it happen)

Libba is probably the obvious one from these. Could it be considered chasing points though? Merett is a nice POD but can he shake a tag? Anfd Kelly is sideways trading to a guaranteed top 3 fwd? Any feedback would be great!

    SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 16:29

    Depends on your take of Libba. He a top 8 mid? Feel you've missed the boat on him now. TKelly from the list (assuming he plays).

      Tommo76 · 11/04/2019 at 16:47

      I dont see him as top 8-10 mid, but i feel with a -55 BE he can get to 500k. Is that worth it?

FearTheBeard · 11/04/2019 at 14:50

Do I cut Rocky for Libba? More cash to make as a stepping stone and wasn't good signs prior to his KO with Wines back…

    FearTheBeard · 11/04/2019 at 14:50

    Plus More chance he could be a keeper if he stays healthy?

      Brn · 11/04/2019 at 15:00

      You have rocky. Keep him

        FearTheBeard · 11/04/2019 at 15:07

        I understand though I need to make a trade to make 10-15k cash to get Neale.

        I could go early on Stack and rid myself of Hore.

        That said I'm weighing up Rocky was kod. He was spudding it up before hand (as soon as Wines was in). Libba has a -55 be (think rockys is 100?) bad logic?

      Hawks · 11/04/2019 at 15:34

      Wouldn't trade Rocky to Libba.

      Not against trading Rocky, but id either go for a Premo, or downgrade to a cash cow (like Stack next week maybe).

      Should be part of painting the fence

        Brn · 11/04/2019 at 16:16

        Id sacrifice the trade by ridding of one of your worst rookies to a better rookie for the extra cash/neale trade.

          Brn · 11/04/2019 at 16:18

          Libba has potential to score low.

          Controversial, but if hore isnt named i'd trade him to stack early

Brn · 11/04/2019 at 14:59

Oliver, gawn or lloyd VC this week?
Has to be one

    Hawks · 11/04/2019 at 15:32

    Lloyd, no McVeigh, and the way the ball has been coming out of the Melbourne forward line, Lloyd should get stacks of it.

      Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:17

      It might be possible for Lloyd to even get more of the kick ins.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/04/2019 at 15:35

Must have finished just a little behind you last week Kev as also cracked it for some cold hard in draftstars.

Gonna stick with dunk me thinks and probably Brodie as well.

    SC_Kev7 · 11/04/2019 at 16:30

    Well done, Trigga! I'm usually awful at single slates, so it was good to get a win. Same, keeping Dunks. Don't have Brodie but I'd be keeping him too

Goat____23 · 11/04/2019 at 15:38

Who do i trade in for Hore… Lockhart or Wagner

    Ja191 · 11/04/2019 at 17:29

    neither keep him til someone better comes up

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 18:05

    Hore's in, Lockhart out injured.

Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 15:45

Hore to be late in

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/04/2019 at 15:47

    Hope so mate.

      Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 16:07

      Would you start him if he plays Trigg?

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/04/2019 at 16:26

        Not much of a sample size to go on.

        Smaller ground and contested possession should suit him.

        Luckily dont have make that call..

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 15:49

    Word is Melb to make a couple of late changes

Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 16:05

Melbourne could make as many as two late changes for tonight’s crunch clash against Sydney Swans.

Mature-age forward Jay Lockhart has a back issue, while gun backman Neville Jetta is also battling some soreness.

Defender Marty Hore and creative utility Charlie Spargo are on standby from the emergency list.

Lockhart and Jetta are both likely to face last-minute tests in a bid to prove their fitness before tonight’s warm-up.

This is from Herald Sun 30 minutes ago.

    Brn · 11/04/2019 at 16:20

    Lockart could burn a few slow coaches if a late out.

      Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 16:26

      You're not wrong Brn, especially if they got him for Hore and Hore plays well.

        Westy · 12/04/2019 at 09:41

        I got Lockhart for Hore the other week.
        I also Heen-ed myself in time for Round 2.
        #donttradepremosunlesstheyresimpson

Finnius · 11/04/2019 at 16:49

VC Gawn or Clarry? My only loop is Suite.

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:16

    I'm really looking forward to watching JPK and Oliver go head to head. The old beast and the new beast.

    They could both get 150 or they could both get 60.

    Swans might be happy for them to go head to head and give some attention to brayshaw.

      Ja191 · 11/04/2019 at 17:28

      who do you think harmes and hewett go to? oliver and jpk i'd think

nankthetank · 11/04/2019 at 17:02

Is Lockhart just a placeholder for May until he returns?

    TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 17:11

    They play different positions? Lockhart is a small forward and May is a tall defender

      nankthetank · 11/04/2019 at 17:13

      Whoops thought lockhart has been playing back

Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:10

reminder to everyone:

Gawn plays tonight.

Grundy plays Friday night:

anyone with Gundy/Gawn as Rucks and using R3 (Bines) as your C loophole. make sure you have Gawn on bench WITH E tonight, so you can still use Bines as your loophole C.

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:12

    unless you are holding Fyfe or Dusty, don't worry

    Holty01 · 11/04/2019 at 18:10

    Thanks Derek

      Funkhouser · 11/04/2019 at 18:25

      timely reminder, cheers Derek almost missed that one.

Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:13

and don't forget: No REVERSING AFTER TONIGHT LOCKOUT

(there is always someone)

UpBeat · 11/04/2019 at 17:17

Anyone concerned with big Max Gawn now Preuss is playing? and why the f**k is Preuss playing?

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 17:23

    A little bit, I read he'll be playing a bit more down back but that might not be a bad thing, he tends to get down there anyway, and all over the ground.
    Still think he'll get plenty of Ruckwork (hopefully)..but also, they might need him more down back, it is a worry.
    If Preuss spuds it, he could be out just as quick.

      UpBeat · 11/04/2019 at 17:29

      True Rusty but IF Preuss plays well sharing the ruck, which he'll be very keen to do, will this effect Gawn long term?

      I'm actually thinking of trading Gawn while his price is big, and bring in a cheaper ruck and Neale with the cash. I need to cover the loss of Fyfe without losing Fyfe..

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 17:36

        That'd be a big call mate, it's impossible to know how Preuss will affect Gawny yet, he could make up for the lack of hitout/ clearance points taking contested marks down back and getting more kicks.
        Guess you could get Mumford or someone, who would you trade out for Neale?
        Still can't see Gawn not being a top 2 Ruckman, even with Preuss there.

          UpBeat · 11/04/2019 at 17:41

          I'm looking at Mummy. I have Gibbons or Atkins I can trade to get Neale, I also have $175k in the bank.

            Blueth · 11/04/2019 at 21:30

            cos he's a sherrin eating ogre

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:24

    Preuss is there becuase TMac is getting the best defender now Jess is gone. Bring in a bigger bloke, they might free Tom up. maybe.

      UpBeat · 11/04/2019 at 17:32

      So Gawn will probs stay clear of the backline while Preuss is there? Preuss will ruck the back half.

        Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:38

        other way. will be like Cox and Grundy.

        Preuss will play forward and do the forward line ruck and gawn will play midfield and defense

Tristan · 11/04/2019 at 17:32

Is it worth trading Brodie Smith to Jake Lloyd as I have the cash? Smith hasn't set the world on fire.
Also don't have Neale so would have to pass on him, though would probably need to trade fyfe to get him.

    Derek · 11/04/2019 at 17:40

    give it another week. Brodie still has a bit of cash to make. where Lloyd is about as expensive as he will be, shouldn't go up much, get him later.

Greg · 11/04/2019 at 17:52

worth trading Dunkley to whitfield? (swapping moore to fwd line)

    Benjiherb · 11/04/2019 at 18:15

    Yeap dunkley is gonna drop in price Whitfield is going up an will continue to score higher than dunkleys not getting a run in the guts.

    Saritz · 11/04/2019 at 19:10

    I hate sideways trading of premo's. But I actually think its not a bad move. Especially if you didnt use 2 corrective trades after round 3

Benjiherb · 11/04/2019 at 17:55

Marty HORE in with a late change .

Hank · 11/04/2019 at 17:55

Dusty for whitfield or Clayton Oliver?

nankthetank · 11/04/2019 at 17:57

Marty Hore in

    Rick Grimes · 11/04/2019 at 18:06

    Yep, wonder how many people have flicked him and don't realise. Probably pump out a ton now. SC Gods are cruel.

      Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 18:14

      Even funnier if they traded in Lockhart .. sorry, I shouldn’t laugh …

        JohnDJ59 · 11/04/2019 at 19:22

        It wasn't worth the trade anyway, so they will get what they deserve.

    Saritz · 11/04/2019 at 19:13

    Glad i stuck with that Hore

      Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 19:34

      Who has him on field??

        Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 19:34

        on 28 already

        redherringfc · 11/04/2019 at 20:31

        I chucked the E on him, now I have to hope for a late out somewhere else or Scrimshaw to not make the cut (although that wouldn’t be any good anyway)

          Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:35

          i went hore to scrimshaw last week. oops

RoyWetard · 11/04/2019 at 18:05

So I was going to trade Lockhart in this week with the idea to be able to get Lloyd next week. Do I trade in Stack now with the hope Lockhart comes back next week and if that happens bring him in next week (or some other rookie that shows up) to get Lloyd? How about Wagner?

Michael · 11/04/2019 at 18:07

Stewart or Libba to be traded in for Short?

Libba means I may need to bring Miers in via Moore's DPP, pushing Butters to the bench also. Would leave 100k in the bank.

Stewart means I will bring in either Wagner or Stack, however Butters stays on field. Would have no money in the bank.

Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 18:17

Greenwood out… so no tag on Macrae

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 18:30

    Said he’ll be out. To slow with him in need more pace especially going fwd at times

Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 18:27

Bailey Scott is out ..

    Krups · 11/04/2019 at 18:31

    Yep. Good. Needed a koophole

Yeahnah · 11/04/2019 at 18:29

Hmm.. Scott and Fyfe out means I'll have to field either Atkins or Gibbons..hopefully doesnt hurt me too much

    Saritz · 11/04/2019 at 19:08

    If Stocker is named, likely Gibbons is out. So it will make your choice easier 🙂

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 19:12

    Could only be Aitkins dont think Gibbons makes 22

Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 18:30

Toby Greene misses again

Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 18:31

Jack Ross named for the Tigers… Liam Stocker in the Blues squad..

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 18:54

    Gibbons out?

PeeJay · 11/04/2019 at 18:34

Dusty for Libba? Thinking Libba might be a keeper as M8 or 9. Thoughts?

    Jim · 11/04/2019 at 18:40

    Yep take the risk, and make the coin!

JEL · 11/04/2019 at 18:38

What's up with Gibbs?
Doubt many have got him but strange he is 'omitted'

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 18:53

    I think he's just been playing crap, I just omitted him from my draft side lol

      hedski · 11/04/2019 at 19:12

      I'm nibbling at that bait.

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:14

        Go for it mate..he's a free agent I think…maybe?…dunno lol

          hedski · 11/04/2019 at 19:35

          Waiver wire from the little I can work out.
          Gotta be better than Vardy.

            Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:52

            Yeah Josh Bootsma is better than Vardy

    JEL · 11/04/2019 at 18:54

    Ok, team news explains:

    Gibbs will run out onto Woodville Oval for the SANFL Crows on Saturday afternoon, replaced in the senior side by Cam Ellis-Yolmen.

    Crows coach Don Pyke said Ellis-Yolmen deserved his opportunity off the back of an impressive and consistent pre-season, coupled with a dominant SANFL performance where he collected a game-high 36 disposals (24 contested possessions), nine clearances and seven tackles.

    “Bryce's form has been patchy and not at the usual consistent high standard that both he and we expect," Pyke said.

Jim · 11/04/2019 at 18:39

Worth trading scott to wagner?

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 18:51

    Not sure cause Scott was rested, not omitted..wondering if his first round score was a one off though.

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 18:56

    Scott has plenty of cash to make, listed as rested so should be back next week

Ray · 11/04/2019 at 18:40

What to do with Fyfe?

No trade – means i have to play Atkins onfield

1 Trade – Straight swap Fyfe for Bont

2 Trades – Fyfe and Scott out, Macrae and Wagner in ( wagner on bench)

    PeeJay · 11/04/2019 at 18:43

    Keep Fyfe, only out for 1 week and easily in top 10 mids at seasons end

    George S · 11/04/2019 at 19:58

    I nervously traded Fyfe for Neale. That was a serious head knock and it may take 2-3 weeks for his head to fully clear. Maybe a trade in target after the byes.

Matt · 11/04/2019 at 18:42

Darling to Worpel? Would be my first trade of the year.

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 18:58

    I'm holding, if I was trading I'd go Gresham over Worpedo.

Barks · 11/04/2019 at 18:54

Getting rid off Westoff for Dalhouse that would give me enough to upgrade Goldstein to Gawn is that a wise move or not.

    kinglear009 · 11/04/2019 at 19:04

    Definitely stick with Goldy. No trading there.

    As for Westhoff, perhaps he needs to go, it's really your call.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:06

    Goldy could go well against O'Brien this week but Westhoff has to go now if you're gonna do it…he's losing bulk money.

      Barks · 11/04/2019 at 19:10

      Sounds like good advice, sticking with Goldy. Westoff has gone for Dalhouse and I'll bank the extra cash for a later upgrade.

RoyWetard · 11/04/2019 at 18:57

Trade Scott with a slight chance at getting Lloyd next week (cap issues) or trade Setterfield as the added 11k would ease my chances of getting Lloyd and hope Scott comes back?

James · 11/04/2019 at 18:57

What on earth to do with Greene now? i've waited all this time for him

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:09

    Punt him mate, he could miss 6 weeks for all you know, and then what'll he be like?..forget him he's a write off. Bank some cash.

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 19:14

    Studs up to the face for bad Toby.

    Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 19:39

    I was only holding him till this week .. he’s gonesky… now I have to decide what to do with $587k in the kitty

      Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:51

      Wish I had those problems Laz

        Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 20:04

        But I’m still a d1ckhead … before Scott was out I had to pick between Gawn or Oliver as my VC as I only had Sweet to loop… guess who I chose .. then not only did I not change the VC, I didn’t think to look at Heeney to replace Greene.. yet I had him in my Trading spreadsheet … Rule #1 … don’t take phone calls from your daughter within 30 mins of the lock out… doh

          Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:21

          That's it mate..turn off the phone half an hour before bouncedown.

          derek · 11/04/2019 at 23:08

          i feel your pain mate. double so that you still have Greene

            Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 23:45

            Yep.. .. and what do I do ? Go to Kelly now or wait another week for Heeney.. still watching Boak, and Daniel… and not ready for Menegola who will drop a few more $$.. I like Daniel too ..
            What a total stuff up..
            I don’t need MIDs at this stage .. have Macrae, Cripps, Neale, MCrouch, Oliver and Libba..

            So it’s probably Kelly.. or loophole Greene and wait..

Ja191 · 11/04/2019 at 18:58

incoming 150 from lloyd, seagulls gonna be in fine form tonight

Ando · 11/04/2019 at 19:14

No Greenwood for Collingwood. Macrae C it is.

    TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 19:19

    As a pies man I’ve had it on Grundy all week. This news definitely has me rethinking it

      Ando · 11/04/2019 at 19:21

      Don't think you can go wrong with either!

ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 19:36

Go VC Hore!

    Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 19:38

    Bullshit lol

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 19:42

      You know it 😉

        Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 19:46

        Hahahaha

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:49

    I have the C on Preuss..just had a feeling 🙂

      Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 20:08

      No prizes for second best mate, jokes been done already, maybe next time , hahaha

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:19

        Fair enough lol

cash_cows · 11/04/2019 at 19:37

Hore looking lively.

Probably should have done it last week but my only trade this week is to fix a start of season blunder.

Mclean to Dahl.

hedski · 11/04/2019 at 19:38

Some more juicy head 2 heads for me this week.
Trigga, Shaker, Rick Grimes, JohnD, Damo, Green Shoots, Brownlow Boy.
Good luck lads <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f44d.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🍻" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f37b.svg"&gt;

    JohnDJ59 · 11/04/2019 at 19:47

    Good luck to you as well hedski, though I don't think you will need it, having my worst start since I started playing in 2014.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 19:51

    Whats your team name Hedski?

      hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:02

      The Martini Police.
      You done me in draft league last week AB.
      (The UltraCheese)

        AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 20:06

        Oh right, yeah that game mode is really down to luck, sorta hard to beat Neale as C

          hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:14

          Short going down didn't help but you still had me covered.

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 20:01

    I will wish u good luck Hedski 🤦‍♂️

      hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:14

      No you don't Shake…

        Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 22:20

        Ok maybe not 😉

          hedski · 11/04/2019 at 22:21

          Ha

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 12/04/2019 at 11:03

    Best of luck in all the other leagues. 😏

      hedski · 12/04/2019 at 13:12

      Ha ha

    JohnDJ59 · 14/04/2019 at 18:51

    A good game hedski, can't get much closer than a 1 pointer, you having Scrimshaw on the field was the difference between us.

TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 19:41

Is Oliver even playing? Jeepers needs to lift is an understatement

    AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 19:54

    Its not listed on fanfooty but he's receiving a lot of attention from Hewett

      JEL · 11/04/2019 at 20:39

      Now they're showing the padlock on him, courtesy of Hewett.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:55

    Dunno what's up with him but I'd be happy if he could get somewhere near his breakeven this week, I'm hardly seeing him on the field.

hedski · 11/04/2019 at 19:44

Heeney making a mockery of me trading him out last week.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 19:49

    Heeney really was a meany

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:51

    Hopefully it wasn't to Westhoff mate 🙂

    TOPHAWK1 · 11/04/2019 at 19:55

    That is not ideal my friend. I did not start with him either which is not great but I might consider trading him in now.

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:03

    Traded Hore out too <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤣" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f923.svg"&gt;

      Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:06

      Think you'll have to come in to SC HQ mate for some re-education…LOL

        hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:07

        I was rightly (wrongly) concerned about his ankle… Traded to Kelly. Oh the irony.

Benjiherb · 11/04/2019 at 19:50

For all those that traded heeney 😂😂

TOPHAWK1 · 11/04/2019 at 19:53

Clayton Oliver dropping yet another massive turd tonight. WTF is going on with that bloke? Hardly seen the prikkk in that first quarter.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 19:59

    Hewitt tag?

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 20:00

    Tagged Hewitt

    Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:37

    3 below par scores in 4 weeks if he doesn't lift..
    I won't trade premiums but my god his doing his best to tempt me!

      Beezneez · 12/04/2019 at 16:58

      Me too – to Neale. His DE is woeful bit like Treloar used to be.

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:16

        Not as bad as Gawn's was last night Beez, just over 50%..think the Dees had lost some confidence, hopefully with the win they'll start cleaning things up in general.

Swans2012 · 11/04/2019 at 19:57

The trading of Heeney is likely going into the record books as my greatest ever trade error……

    JohnDJ59 · 11/04/2019 at 20:02

    Yes, but we did have a good reason in that he was playing with an injury and we didn't know how long it would last.

    derek · 11/04/2019 at 23:11

    you didn't??

      Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 07:43

      Yeah yeah I know, it’s even worse when your a swan supporter and you cheer for him then there’s a little tear in your eye at the same time lol

      Just thought I’d try playing loose this year, got tired of the no midpricer/no sideways regime….the midprice side of things isn’t so bad (English the only real stain, but he goes either sideways to mummy or down to Clarke or up to grundy next week). But safe to say heen comes back in sometime and it’s cost me a trade lol…

Stupid Coach · 11/04/2019 at 19:59

Looking to get rid of Simpson and don't have enough cash to get Lloyd so thinking of Whitfield. Also have McKay (NM) that I want to offload but can't see an obvious trade option with Lockhart a late withdrawal, Hore playing only his second game and Joyce (St K) listed as an emergency and only playing his second game if named tomorrow. I have Rozee, Burgess, Dursma and Collins. Thoughts?

    JohnDJ59 · 11/04/2019 at 20:41

    Simpson to Whitfield makes sense, I'm looking at doing the same trade.

Rick Grimes · 11/04/2019 at 20:02

Melbourne not winning any bounces and Brayshaw is floating around in the forward line. Wtf

AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 20:03

Thoughts on Phil Davis' commentary? I think he shows a lot of promise and will be pretty good once he retires

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:05

    Hey AB, yeah I like Phil, very articulate and he's a dead ringer for Pendles too.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 20:10

      I was actually really surprised by how intelligent he sounds, maybe its because he's 6"6 and huge but i assumed he was a bit of a neanderthal

hedski · 11/04/2019 at 20:12

FFS Isaac

Holty01 · 11/04/2019 at 20:13

Heeney is becoming Menegola all over again. 😫

gator59 · 11/04/2019 at 20:14

HEENEY

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:18

    GATOR!….good to see you mate, haven't seen you around much lately.
    Itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini Heeney's killing it 🙂

      gator59 · 11/04/2019 at 20:23

      Been layin low Russty.. Have had a lot on my plate of late

Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:16

Come on Gawny..keep going you big bald bearded behemoth bastard!

    Holty01 · 11/04/2019 at 20:19

    At least Gawn going ok for me. Hore on my bench

      Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:22

      Same mate, Hore probably tons up on our benches..and whatever spud we put on field will no doubt get a 35.

        gator59 · 11/04/2019 at 20:25

        Yep and can't loop him either

TOPHAWK1 · 11/04/2019 at 20:27

Heeney in trouble. God damn!!!!

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:31

    Crap!..hopefully he's ok after some treatment at half time.

      Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:35

      he'll be okay a quick jab and he will continue his way to another 130+

        Northerner · 11/04/2019 at 20:51

        Struggling to see how 75 at half time was his score. Didn’t seem to get enough of it. Thought Lloyd was outstanding every time he got near it. Such an amazing user and so clean.

          AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 21:25

          His posessions are very rarely contested though Northener, which does limit his score slightly. Still a gun though obviously

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:01

    You don't have him mate, why all the exclamation points?..haha

Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:30

Jeez Melbourne really kick a lot without looking who they're kicking it to, need a bit more composure.

Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 20:42

clayton oliver to dusty martin for me next week… lock it in

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:06

    Clayton to Libba mate, after his 70k price-rise this week 🙂

      Maverick_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:13

      haha luckily i already have libba russty i started him was due for some good fortune after starting him in 2018 and lasting 10 minutes before he done his ACL! My God Brayshaws DE% must be horrible he never seems to find targets i reckon that hurts his scoring alot.

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:24

        Yeah I felt that pain too Mav, had Libba last year too…Brayshaw's D/E is 62.5 with 1 clanger, Oliver's is 54.5 with 4 clangers.

Northerner · 11/04/2019 at 20:47

FFS. Went Hore to Lockhart as def/mid is always attractive. And then late out for Hore. Just too busy on too many other things to check. FFS.

    TOPHAWK1 · 11/04/2019 at 20:51

    You mean a late in for Hore?

      Northerner · 12/04/2019 at 07:39

      Sorry I meant Lockhart was a late out for Hore.

Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 21:25

Swear to god Champion data play supercoach, watched Heeney not get a touch or tackle or anything for a good 5 minutes but his score kept going up

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:31

    He gets extra points for general gutsiness, and his hair, Oliver loses points for his hair…terrible.

      Hawk131415 · 11/04/2019 at 21:46

      Hahaha nice one Russty

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:48

        Bloody Oliver this week Hawk!…I'm contemplating rage trading his red haired ass next week.

          AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 21:58

          Bit harsh Russty, 32 disposals with 19 contested with 3 minutes left in the last quarter. DE the only thing to let him down tonight

            Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:05

            57% d/e AB, and 8 clangers really hurt his score….just not scoring like a 600k mid, except for that 140

              ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 22:09

              Yeah know what ya mean. 600k mid should be scoring 90-120 consistantly with the odd 130+

    JEL · 12/04/2019 at 00:59

    SC scores are scaled during the game based on the how valuable the points are for that moment of the game.
    If the game is won in the 1st quarter, then over the course of the game, those points become more, while later points are scaled down.
    Likewise, if the game gets won in last quarter, the early game points will be worth less.

    Info on the scoring is out there, google is your friend.

Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 21:26

Glad so far l started Hore. Hopefully he gets at least 15pts in the last.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:29

    It'll give you a nice leg up on other teams this week Shake compared to their def rookies.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 22:07

      When defender rookies go 70+ it feels like 100

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:18

        Amen to that mate, cause the inevitable 30's and 40's will come.

SC_Donkey · 11/04/2019 at 21:28

With McVeigh out Heeney is running loose around the ground. Hopefully Horse will keep him running loose when McVeigh comes back.
Went with my Gut feeling Dusty to Bont instead of Lloyd man I hope it won't bite me.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 21:49

Dee players aren't reliable SC players this year by the looks of it. Tight game and they are losing the split hard! Not to mention they are no where near what they were doing as a team last year

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 21:51

    Yeah Dave they're sloppy as hell with their D/E, I'm surprised they're winning really, Oliver is making me angry!

Corey · 11/04/2019 at 21:57

Wow How good is Heeney, what a turnaround glad I kept my faith, that hit on Jayden Hunt was huge!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 22:03

    Mate I'm just glad that Martin was in my team as well as Heeney. Looked at them both through the eye of a duck and chose Martin to Sloane after round 2. Hindsight is powerful yet uncontrollable force

    NoLanguage96 · 11/04/2019 at 22:47

    Me too. Jet

Lazza · 11/04/2019 at 21:59

How poor is Sydney’s disposal this last qtr .. ZJones dreadful.. Lloyd terrible..

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:01

    They looked very flat in the last Lazza, and with no support from their home crowd, very quiet.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 11/04/2019 at 22:05

      Going to take Franklin 3 more seasons to get to his 1000th goal if he stays with Sydney

        Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:18

        If he doesn't end up back at Hawthorn first?

    nankthetank · 11/04/2019 at 22:58

    I've been saying this for a long time now…
    LLOYD IS NOT A GOOD PLAYER.
    He is a good SC pick but as an AFL defender he contributes very little that someone else playing an identical role could.
    34 touches, only 4 contested and ZERO tackles.

      Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 07:46

      Can’t tackle with the ball in your hand though can you?

Rick Grimes · 11/04/2019 at 22:02

Love me a cheap Hore.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:07

    You really got your money's worth from Hore tonight Rick.

    Ando · 11/04/2019 at 22:09

    Hahaha. Glad I held onto him.

    finnigin · 11/04/2019 at 22:32

    summs you up rick

      Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:34

      Ever heard of the concept of humour?..try it sometime.

Michael · 11/04/2019 at 22:03

First year I've started with Oliver and another bad game from him

Yeahnah · 11/04/2019 at 22:05

Not sure why they water the SCG before the game, the ball is like a bar of soap

    Ando · 11/04/2019 at 22:08

    Must've left the sprinklers on for too long. Easy marks being dropped, handling errors galore. Ridiculous.

Yeahnah · 11/04/2019 at 22:05

As a Swans fan can't see either of these teams being close to the top 8

TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 22:05

85 from 33 touches is a worry for Clarry. We knew he was handball heavy when we picked him I guess.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 22:07

    He still had 15 kicks though Tommy, wasn't too one sided. His DE was the main thing that let him down, only 57 percent

      TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 22:19

      Yeah having a look, do we think hes a little stiff? Did butcher it a bit but 20 contested possessions. 8 clangers probably hurts but i personally think he should be a little closer to 100.

        AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 22:23

        I think he should've been closer to 95, but im probably a little biased. As you said, 8 clangers hurts a lot

      Derek · 11/04/2019 at 22:23

      He fumbled the ball a lot. Cost him points for not picking it up clean. Very disappointed with his efforts tonight.

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 22:16

    Just dont think the way he gets it, gets rewarded!!!!

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:29

    More like clanger happy than handball happy. Don't know why the Dees panic so much, there's no need to.

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 07:49

    Might be first upgrade for those of us without him……I’m thinking it’ll be him or laird for me unless simmo or yeo show a glimpse of turnaround.

Yeahnah · 11/04/2019 at 22:08

Gawn should have been 150+, absolutely dominated the ruck

    TommyC99 · 11/04/2019 at 22:14

    Yeah nah

    I think 112 is a little stiff but only went at 52% with 4 clangers.

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:16

    D/E just over 50% YN, and 4 clangers to boot.

AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 22:10

You'd reckon Gawn is a bit stiff not to go 120+

    hedski · 11/04/2019 at 22:16

    Brayshaw deserved to tonne up too.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/04/2019 at 22:16

Hasn't hibberd fallen off a cliff

Just a bit player now …

    neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 11:04

    Hore the knew Hibberd beautiful disposal should never have been omitted great young player

hedski · 11/04/2019 at 22:17

Next week's trades are sorted.
Scrimshaw to Hore and TK to Heeney……

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/04/2019 at 22:30

    Funny 😆

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:32

    Clarry to Nathan Jones next week mate, makes sense.

    Shake_n_bake · 11/04/2019 at 22:36

    I like it!!

COREYSC · 11/04/2019 at 22:22

Well that score and performance should allow Hore to keep his spot surely!

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:25

    Or who does he have to blow to keep his spot?…;)

TBone_9 · 11/04/2019 at 22:27

Go Dees! Much happier with what I saw today, especially in the second half. Hore looked great, Preuss showed signs of what he can do and a much better team performance in general! Also Heeney, I knew you’d come back to your best mate 🙂

    Russty_ · 11/04/2019 at 22:30

    Nice one T-Bone, season still alive mate with their first win, too much talent there to be out of the race early, hope they can clean up their D/E as a team soon.

      TBone_9 · 11/04/2019 at 23:08

      Yeah I reckon that’s our biggest issue we’re facing Russty. At least we can go forward with some confidence, and we are coming for those saints next weekend!

        Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 07:45

        He is a big lump Preuss isn’t he!

NoLanguage96 · 11/04/2019 at 22:50

428 from Max, Heeney, Oliver and Salem. Didn't expect the worst score to come from Clarry with 33 :/

Connor · 11/04/2019 at 22:52

Gawn and Oliver stiff?

    AuroraBorealis?! · 11/04/2019 at 23:34

    Gawn? Definitely, basically won the game for the Dees. Clarry? Not so much, wasn't very clean or efficient tonight, still reckon he deserved 90-95 though

    Sharkmove_King · 12/04/2019 at 06:12

    I might sound bitter because I don't have Heeney….But to say Heeney (or any Sydney player for that matter) had more impact than Gawn is just plain wrong. Gawn had 18 hitouts to advantage, and alot of possessions in the back half including marks from opposition kicks. A real head scratcher!

      Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 07:36

      i thought Heeney was huge! BOG in the first half. Gawn didn’t even have a mark up til half time did he? I think Heeney’s score was fair enough.

        Sharkmove_King · 12/04/2019 at 11:21

        That's half the problem. Supercoach prides itself on awarding more points at important stages of the game. Heeney (to be fair had a decent game) had a great 1st quarter with 10 possessions, which means 13 for the rest of the match. Gawn (& Oliver to a lesser extent) were huge when the game was there to be won in the last

JohnDJ59 · 11/04/2019 at 23:43

Just a quick poll, if you were going to do two trades this week, thinking long term, which two players would you prefer to trade in, Milera and Neale or Whitfield and Boak.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 00:41

    For me Neale is the most crucial to get in of the 4, however, Whitfield & Boak is a greater aggregate gain than Neale & Milera

      JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 00:49

      You summed up my thinking AB, Neale is on the most wanted list, but Whitfield and Boak together would be a greater bounty. Still not sure which way to go.

        COREYSC · 12/04/2019 at 06:19

        Yeah Whitfield and Boak

    neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 07:10

    the problem is neale will betoo expensive like macrae 2018

      Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 07:26

      Neale will get sat on. We seen at Freo he can be quelled when being tagged. Clubs are not going to keep letting him do what he wants. I’m not saying he will fall under $600k or anything. But I think the smart play is to not sacrifice starting line-ups at all costs to get Neale now. Stay strong!

        Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 08:46

        Bit harsh on Neale saying he can be quelled. He is one that can still accumulate disposals even with the added attention. All players when tagged will be affected just some more so then others. That’s why I strongly feel the tag will almost always go to Zorko.
        For example, when Fyfe didn’t play last year and Neale got the added attention, his scores were
        110
        78
        108
        119
        111
        120
        134

          JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 11:58

          Who do you think is more important to have Holty, Neale or Whitfield and Boak.

            Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 12:40

            That Is a tough one John. I am one that tries and looks for value and at present all seem to be at their most expensive. All however will be keepers but depends where you are at your weakest. For example my midfield are all doing well so I wouldn’t look at Neale at present. Backline I’m happy with but my forward line is looking poor so I’d be bringing in Boak.

              JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 12:56

              Hi Holty, I will be trading out Simpson, so I need a defender, I was going straight to Whitfield, but after the price changes I can't afford to, ( I should have punted Simmo last week, but I gave him another chance ) So if I get Whitfield I have to do another trade, but if I get in Milera it can be a straight swap, though I'm not sure he will be a top six defender.

                Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 13:04

                Are you in any of my leagues? I wouldn’t be bringing in Milera over Whitfield if you had the choice. How much short of cash are you?

                  JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 13:15

                  Not sure Holty, I remember asking you to join one of mine, Holy Grail, but you weren't sure, what's your teams name ? I'm well short Holty, to get Whitfield, I was looking at trading Fyfe out for Boak and the cash saved there gets me Simmo to Whitfield.

    redherringfc · 12/04/2019 at 13:32

    Given those options this week, I’d go with Whitfield and Boak. I don’t think Milera is someone you want in your team at the end of the season. Then save your $$ and get Neale later.

    SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 13:54

    I'm holding back on Neale need to see him play with a tagger breathing down his back. If had to choose two Whitfield and Boak.

      JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 14:11

      Thanks red and Donkey, it looks like Whitfield and Boak are winning the race at the moment, they were my first choice, but Neale does seem the real deal, being the main man, a bit like Titch at the Hawks, just someone you can depend upon to pump out those top scores.

      JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 01:17

      Finally made up my mind, traded out Simpson for Whitfield and to be able to afford that trade, I traded out Fyfe for Boak. I was hoping to hold Dunkley, but I fear he might be like Simpson and I've held on for one week too long. I really have stuffed up my starting team this year as far as most of my premiums go, looks like the winning way was to pick the very best two on each line, get your mid priced players right and most of the rookies. I'm fine with my rookies, but most people have them anyway, so it's going to be a long season.

Stupid Coach · 12/04/2019 at 06:43

Bailey Scott to Sydney Stack and Simpson to Whitfield – leaves me with $62k or

Simpson to Milera – leaves me with $180k and McKay to Hore or Lockhart (next week). If I go Simpson to Whitfield I am left with only $100.

I know Stack has only played one game but hoping he can keep his spot long enough to generate some cash.

    Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 08:22

    Simpson to Whitfield. Bring in Stack next week when on the bubble

Ktfg · 12/04/2019 at 06:53

I had cash to turn Bailey Scott into Libba. Probably a shit love but I don't wanna take aitkens score of 30 and miss out on a huge price jump

    Ktfg · 12/04/2019 at 06:56

    Move*

    Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 08:20

    Great move imo. No point having all that money in the bank. Plus the way Libba is going, he’ll make more money then some of the current rookies

Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 07:19

Omeara big doubt

    neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 11:06

    How the hell do you get these gems Shake? Thanks

      Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 12:16

      Houli pulled out aswell Neil these changes don’t effect many at all but just putting it out there. Go Dees.

        Derek · 12/04/2019 at 13:51

        Houli and JOM in my draft team.

          Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 14:22

          Houli was in one of mine too Derek, waited patiently for 3 weeks now this lol, now he's back n the bench again.
          Cheers for the info Shaker.

Buzz · 12/04/2019 at 07:35

Dusty out, can afford Macrae or Neale in, who to pick or should I bank some $ and get Libba?

    DavidC · 12/04/2019 at 12:44

    Probably the last chance to get Libba.

Ando · 12/04/2019 at 08:26

Start Spudderfield or Parker on field? On Parker at the moment as he's shown he has a higher ceiling but Parker has the better fixture.

Ando · 12/04/2019 at 08:46

Do Essendon tag? Captaincy is between Macrae and Neale. I know Greenwood is out for Collingwood but I'd prefer Neale if I know The Bombers don't tag.

    COREYSC · 12/04/2019 at 10:37

    If anything Greenwood goes to Libba
    Essendon as far as I’m concerned don’t tag usually they don’t defend either😂

      Ando · 12/04/2019 at 12:02

      Greenwood is out Corey.

      Hahaha, fair point regarding Essendon. Has Devon Smith ever been a tagger?

    Whitey · 12/04/2019 at 13:55

    As a bombers supporter…Neale will run rampant.

Is it worth trading gibbons to stack. (first trade of year)

This allows me to use stack as cover for fyfe as apposed to atkins

Thoughts?

    Pranav · 12/04/2019 at 09:41

    Getting an extra price rise if gibbons plays and bringing stack in when he is named next week is worth more than the points stack will outsource Atkins by

    Derek · 12/04/2019 at 13:47

    Wait until after Atkin has played. Have him on bench with E

TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 09:06

Morning community!! Thinking of making two gutsy trades. First of all, I will keep Fyfe. I have enough coin to make the following two moves. OUT: Dunkley via DPP an IN Liberatore. OUT: Bailey Scott and IN Whitfield via DPP (Duursma). Leaves me with 2K in the bank. I have Hore down back who looks like he will stay in the Melbourne team now. Makes sense to bring Duursma into the midfield line. Bailey Scott is the perfect sacrificial lamb to make it happen. He will miss this week any way and his BE is already at 25 in any case. He will make some more coin IF selected next week. Who cares if it enables me to get these two big boys in. Hore will offset Scott's cash generation sacrifice and is nice/timely compensation to punt Scott. Whitfield will drop off a little in his scoring with Ward coming back, but I think he is a must have regardless. Should still be good for 100+ average for the rest of the season. Libba still on sale, but the sale ends tonight after he has played. Thoughts?

    KSinny · 12/04/2019 at 09:18

    Sounds great should get some nice extra points with those two

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 09:23

      Thanks mate. I feel that the time has come to make this call and hopefully move my team forward.

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 09:20

    Dunkley and Scott for Whitfield and Libba is a big tick from me scoring wise, Libba and dunkley should average similar (at the least) from here and Whitfield is a top 3 defensive lock. Win win

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 09:25

      Cheers Swans! Exactly my thoughts. The fact that Libba is still only $379K makes this the last opportunity to get these two guys in at the same time.

        Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 09:35

        Definately! the dunkley to Libba move makes 100k for same or better output, that’s my favourite sort of trade. I started Libba so I’m sending Scott up to Marshall this week….

          TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 09:41

          Scott straight up to Marshall is a ripper trade. Marshall an absolute bargain, on the bubble and tearing it up at the Saints. As Crouching one would say" AAAAHHHHHH……… Marshall……..HE GUN! HE BLOODY LOCK!! Welcome…….."

          neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 11:10

          great move Swanny Thinking similar Buddy just doesn't look good but always dangerous.Swans are too good not to be there particularly their young lads Always a great contest dees and Swans

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 12:52

    Sounds good Hawk, Coach Scott admitted he'd made a mistake blooding too many new players early on, so Scott might not even see another game, "rested" could just be omitted, i'll be punting him next week if Stack goes ok this week or doesn't score 25 or get injured.
    Whitfield is a must have but I'm gonna wait for him to come down at some point.

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 18:32

      I agree mate. Hore will start making cash soon and Gibbons is playing as well. Bit of a bonus that. So Scott can turn into Whitfield. Get it over and done with. I have the cash after the Mummy trade. LOL

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:35

        Hey Mummy did ok for ya last week, if he continues getting 90's and the odd ton, that's a bonus, should make you some money too.

    gator59 · 12/04/2019 at 17:32

    Dunkley will go ape shit tonight now that you've traded him out now Toppa.. Look what happened with Heeney and he's made a lot of coaches look stupid..

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 18:35

      Gday Gator. There is always that risk I suppose. But I did not start with Heeney, so at least I wont look stupid twice! Hehehe. Heeney is hot on my radar as he will start to go up in price again. I procrastinated with Billings last year and it burnt me. So going to be decisive and bite the bullet. Libba is an absolute steal even at his price now.

        Dean · 12/04/2019 at 19:15

        Only downfall is Dunkley to Libba should basically score the same, so for mine its a sideways trade, however that being said by getting rid of Scott and bringing in Whitfield makes it more palatable, although you're burning a trade to do it…

          Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:27

          I think Libba's actually taken Dunkley's spot Dean..or points scoring potential anyway, Libba will make money, dunk will lose it, I'm just hoping Libba keeps going long enough to get me to Macrae, then his job is done.

FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 10:34

Dunkley to Marshall and bank the coin? Stupid trade? Can he keep it up?

    FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 10:49

    Purely looking for cash though potential if Marshall can keep going.

    Looking at Dunkley & B Smith OUT

    In

    Marshall & Rozee IN

    Allows potential better scoring in Marshall + more cash coming in and I bank about 250k for double upgrade next week or Neale straight in for Rocky next week.

    Thoughts?

    Other option is I could go Dunkley & Rocky down to Marshall & Libba and bank 100k+ get Libba in and give Smith another week or 2?

      FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 10:50

      Meant to say 200k+ not 100k+ if I went for Libba over Rocky and left Smith/Rozee alone.

      Thoughts? Bloody stuck.

      The idea is purely I need bank and these guys offer more scoring at the moment + 200k+ in bank + more incoming rises?

      neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 11:14

      plays against Gawn next week tough call both good options maybe the Libba deal

        FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 11:19

        Thanks for commenting neil.

        You reckon Rocky to Libba to bank the extra 50k a goer?

        Rocky against my tigers worries me 😐

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 10:51

    If it didn’t make you any coin you wouldn’t but the $$ saved makes it interesting, I’m bringing him in but holding dunkley for now…. I reckon he keeps it up long enough to make it worthwhile….

      FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 10:54

      So you would be saying go for Marshall and out Dunkley.

      What about Libba/Rocky?

      Rozee/B Smith?

      Just go for the 1 with Marshall/Dunkley? Potentially could go early on Stack? Just want to set myself up for two double upgrades next week 😐

      200K + in bank helps.

        Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 12:07

        Sorry responded before your other comments, yep I’d seriously consider dunkley to Marshall for similar points and a bit of cash. I had some cash so I’ve sent Scott to Marshall as I believe dunks will come good.

        Rocky to Libba feels a bit sideways and doesn’t make enough cash to warrant it, unless your sold on Libba being a keeper (which I’m not, rocky same chance as Libba I reckon).

        Smith still might be d6/7, has done what’s expected, I’d leave him there to make a bit more/see how his role pans out. Ships sailed on Rozee wait for the next rookie, don’t go early on stack, looks pretty secure but we’ve been fooled before….

          FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 12:36

          Thanks Swans!

          Yeh I have gone the Marshall trade now so no way back. I too thought he could come good though who knows the extra cash helps for now and worst case Marshal becomes a stepping stone with an income (rather then losing money).

          Rocky to Libba screams sideways to me too. Though Liba has a break even of -55? Rockys is almost 100? Bank 50k plus whatever comes in for another stepping stone? The thing holding me back is Rocky against Tigers could be big. Plus he shouldn't bleed cash at least this week and that provides me a direct link to Neale next week with the bank I have.

            Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 14:17

            If you think Libba could be a keeper and rocky is not then just do it, I have both and am planning on using both as stones, if one turns into a keeper even better. It’s one of those questions with no right answer I think…..plus I’m still scarred from trading heeney

              FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 15:12

              I hear you.

              I can't talk myself into it so I'm not sure.

              PROS – 50K+ from trading Rocky/Libba + -55 breakeven – big coin coming

              CONS – Trade, Rocky could rape tigers this week, not unheard of breakeven around 100 and neither are guaranteed to be keepers 😐

              SOMEONE TALK ME IN/OUT OF IT LOL

                Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 15:43

                Unsure = hold………..

                I know how your feeling I HATE missing out on a successful midpricer but to have enough trades sometimes you have to just hold

COREYSC · 12/04/2019 at 10:35

Hi community I have a question
I have 24K in the bank
Next week when I go Scott to Stack that gives me 88K will that be enough to trade Dunkley (currently 494K) to Boak (521K) if Dunkley scores 80 and Boak 100+ after the price changes?

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 10:49

    Plenty I’d imagine

FearTheBeard · 12/04/2019 at 11:09

Well now locked in Marshall in for Dunkley lol didn't think I couldn't reverse ffs 😐

Hopefully don't bite me in the ass.

Bank now 160kish so can upgrade next week.

Leaves me asking is it worth trading B Smith to Rozee or Rocky to Libba to bank more and have a higher incoming profit? If Libba keeps this up he is a genuine keeper + gives me another 70kish?

JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 11:31

Hey Lazza, I saw a comment of yours about Neale and Whitfield and the fact they weren't over priced, I went back to read it again, but I can't find it, any chance of giving me the lowdown on it again.

    Rick Grimes · 12/04/2019 at 12:40

    I'd like to see that too. I have the money for Whitfield but feel I'm paying top dollar. He surely won't continue at a 120+ average. He spat out a couple of 60s last year. I'd prefer to wait and pay $500k.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 13:09

      That's what i said about Lloyd last year and Docherty in 2017, never ends up happening :'(

        Rick Grimes · 12/04/2019 at 13:31

        Yea true. Could be a long wait. Might just stump up the cash.

          Derek · 12/04/2019 at 13:41

          Lloyd didn’t make his BE last night 😉

            SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 13:51

            Couple more games like that or even 1 under 100 in the next two week I'll be all over it. Hopefully rookies will fatten up by then.

            JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 13:57

            By two points, not a lot in it.

BigAl_15 · 12/04/2019 at 11:36

Trading K Simpson and swinging Burgess back, do I bring in Boak, T Kelly or Dahlhaus?

    JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 11:43

    Kelly, Boak, Dahlhaus, in that order, any of the three would be a good pick up.

      Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 13:14

      Agreed

    Sharkmove_King · 12/04/2019 at 12:25

    I've got the same order as John, however I'd be trading in Boak just because of Kelly's ankle issues. I think Boak & Kelly both top6 this year, Dahlhaus not far off

      Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 14:23

      Kelly's fine Shark, low grade ankle sprain, some ice and strapping and he'll be all good.

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 17:54

    Hope you chose boak!

    Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 19:38

    Who did u go with?

Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 12:57

kicking myself i went hore to scrimshaw after R2.
Hore looks like he will cement his place in the dees 22 after last nights performance. Looks very composed and ready at AFL level

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 14:25

    Don't beat yourself up mate, Scrimshaw could end up being better than Hore anyhoo, we all make mistakes in this game , going too early, going too late, it's all part of the fun! 🙂

      JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 15:04

      Hey Russty what do you think of Joyce from the Saints, I know he's only played one game, scored 67 pts gave away a few frees, but looks like he could be back in the team.

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 15:14

        Hi John, yeah I don't mind Daraghghghg, he's a nice height 194cm and 90 kegs, Irish boy and they tend to be good kicks and are pretty gutsy too, every side needs some good tall defenders so hopefully if he gets a shot this week, he plays well and hangs onto his spot.
        Could take Wilkie or Battle's spot if they spud it up.

          neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 16:19

          Both of them are ok too Rust Your kids are going ok

            Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:13

            Looks like Joyce has disappeared off the teams list now Neil, not even an emergency, wonder what's going on there?

Sarah · 12/04/2019 at 13:44

I mainly care about leagues and have Martin and Fyfe. I'm holding Fyfe but is it still worth trading Martin to a Tim Kelly / Boak? I don't see the value in trading to Libba as I don't think he'll become a top 10 mid so I'll be having to burn another trade.

Is it worth just saving trades, only used one in going Hore to Rozee last week so far, but don't have guys like Macrae, Whitfield or Lloyd in my team, but waiting for one bad game from the defenders to bring their price down.

Thanks

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 14:17

    Hi Sarah, I think you need Kelly in your team, he plays pure mid and is one of the Cat's best now, but Dusty could and probably will end up averaging similar to, or more than him.
    Dusty's been copping tags and harassment and needs to deal with that and learn to control his temper too.
    If it's mostly Leagues you play for, maybe best to just hold and stick with Dusty as he will bounce back..as trades are very valuable.
    You'll still want to acquire Kelly too though, even if you have to do a double downgrade of rookies one week.
    Good luck 🙂

    Wolfy · 12/04/2019 at 15:26

    I didn't start with any of those big guns either (apart from fyfe) – their inflated scoring is killing me! was hoping for greenwood to keep crae to at least 110 this week but looks like that ain't happening either 🙁

    I like Martin to Kelly in that one as well.

      Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 15:38

      Makes ya wish you went Guns and rookies from the get go Wolfy, the guns are guns cause they score big, only midpricer really tearing it up is Libba really. The others we don't have will cost big bucks and trades.

        Derek · 12/04/2019 at 16:57

        i went guns and rookies, but looked to the 'value' guns instead of the uber expensive, except in Ruck. Should have gone one less premium but had Macrea, Neil, Lloyd instead of Dusty, Merrett & Hurn. oh well.

          Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:00

          Know how you feel Derek, my backline's razor thin and Laird is smelly as my best premo there.
          Also Don't have Lloyd, Whitfield, Macrae, or Grundy

          Sharkmove_King · 12/04/2019 at 22:55

          Hurns averaging 102 (very solid) and Merrett is starting to come good.

redherringfc · 12/04/2019 at 13:53

If you traded Heeney out, do you now just accept your punishment from the supercoach gods (2 trades and a few dollars) and bring him back?

    JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 14:16

    He will be coming back in for me, but not straight away, looking at being my last upgrade in the fwd line.

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 14:19

    Yeah I think you just bring him back whenever youve got the cash, it’s only one trade wasted provided you traded him out for someone your keeping….

      JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 14:26

      I went to Kelly, so it wasn't a complete disaster.

      redherringfc · 12/04/2019 at 15:27

      Good point about the 1 trade.

      I held firm on him. I’m worried that when people start bringing him back in the gods might have a bit more to say.

    Wolfy · 12/04/2019 at 15:23

    Depends on Bye structure maybe?

    Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 15:30

    I will punish myself by not bringing him back. Im sure I will also find myself in the fetal position on numerous occasions this year for trading him out. Plus the bye he shares with Geelong hurts. I have to now cop it on the chin now and accept it was a mistake.

Wolfy · 12/04/2019 at 15:22

I'm in need of guidance. Fyfe was all but gone from my team until his insta post – I can't deny that man anything. But now with Scott out, means I'm forced to field Atkins on field. Should I downgrade Dunkley and upgrade Atkins to Libba, or just stick fat with Atkins on field? Could go dunk to rozee I suppose.. 30 trades and $18.8k

Hurn, Crisp, Williams, Scrim, Dursma, Clark (Hore, Burgess)
Neale, Cripps, Bray, Brouch, Cogs, Const, Butters, Atkins (Fyfe, Scott, Gibbons)
Grundy, Gawn (bines)
Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Setters, Drew, Parker (Petra, Balta)

Anyone do Real Dream Team on here? I've got simmo in that one so in even more of a pickle!

    JohnDJ59 · 12/04/2019 at 15:37

    I'd leave it for now Wolfy, if you downgrade Dunkley you will be very light on in the fwd line, what if you trade out Scott, move Setters to the mids and get in Miers from the Cats.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 15:42

    Could also go early on Stack?..Atkins to Stack, or Dunkley to Marshall..maybe just take Atkin's score.
    Depends on how much you want Libba…or you could trade Scott out.

Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 15:39

Hi all. A lot of talk about Marshall on here. Can anyone explain the interest about him? I personally haven’t seen him play but is he seriously worth the consideration. He has played Bellchambers and Lobb this year. Interested in your thoughts community

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 15:45

    He's been the best performing number 1 ruck we've had for years Holty, period.
    If he keeps his spot he could be a very nice pickup, if Richo lets Longer back in the side, Marshall could be sent fwd and could end up a dud pick.
    It's a big risk/ reward pick.
    He does a lot of the good things too, he's very athletic, gets clearances, takes marks, makes tackles and gets plenty of contested possessions…and hitouts.

      neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 16:08

      big boy no good? he was good in JLT also plus his last few games last year bit like Sheed

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 16:54

        Hey Neil, yeah that's what I meant, since Big Boy it's been pretty slim pickings at the saints.

      Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 16:20

      thanks mate. My biggest concern is Longer. If he comes back then you waste a couple of trades plus he isn’t rookie price. As per all the comments however, he seems very highly rated. I don’t have the courage to pick him but hope he pays off for anyone in the community who take the risk on him.

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 16:55

        It'd be a much easier decision for many if he was actually a Ruck/Fwd mate!

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 15:48

    Tackles, marks and gets possessions, not just reliant on winning the ruck battle, he’s not a lock by any means but if he holds down the no1 ruck spot at the saints which he might, might average 90+. If not I burn another trade and he’s a stone, I’m on a trade burning frenzy this year anyway so I’m rolling the dice.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 12/04/2019 at 16:11

    Up against the big boys soon

    That will sort him out.

      Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 16:22

      Next 2 weeks will be a huge test for him. If he can squeeze out a couple of 80s, it will be a fair effort

    Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 16:55

    thanks for the responses everyone

Derek · 12/04/2019 at 16:51

Good luck everyone

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 16:58

    Nice one Derek, looks like I'm on notice in 4th division this week, sitting second last at the moment lol, need to pull my finger out.

      Derek · 12/04/2019 at 17:25

      it is only on the weekly score, not the overall. So its a fresh start every week.

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:29

        Ah ok, cheers mate, one day I'll remember that lol

    JEL · 12/04/2019 at 17:58

    Thanks Derek,

    You know it's a tough comp when a score of 2200+ still has you in the bottom 1/3

      Derek · 12/04/2019 at 19:25

      I think about 2180’s were eliminated in most groups last week.

      One below average week and you are facing out.

UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:14

Who would you bench out of these three to get Hore's score? Collins, Duursma, or Clark

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:23

    Clark, Collins has looked good last 2 weeks and Duursma's been pretty consistent, and is playing Tigers.
    Think Collins could go well against Carlton's forwards.
    Clark would have the toughest game of the 3 going up against the Giants.

      UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:33

      Clark is on the brink of a ton, not sure it'll be this week but I think GWS will go inside 50 quite a bit especially with Ward playing. Collins is solid but will he keep going and Duursma is going ok. aaahhh might just throw a dart.

    Dan · 12/04/2019 at 17:25

    For what it's worth, I had to choose between these three as well and have benched Clark (as overall Collins & Duursma have scored slightly better the last couple of rounds).
    But, having said that, choosing which rookies to field is so hard!

      UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:34

      Collins has the lowest average only because he dropped a nasty in the first round but has improved. I usually would go with the lowest avg but not sure this week,

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:39

        Collins is starting to get into his strengths…intercept marking, means points and not just spoiling, confidence builds with each mark taken too.

          UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:48

          I actually chose him from advice from this site, I think it was you who talked him up so thanks and yes he's staying on the field. I think Clark can have a rest this week, cheers.

            Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:50

            Hope it works out for us UpBeat!..I'm fielding him too.

    neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 17:55

    I had Hore onfield as a loop thinking he was an out .Gotta win sometimes I guess

Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:18

Can't believe Gibbons gets another game and Stocker sits on the E bench.

    UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:37

    Same I'm shocked Gibbons is in again. Now who to field out of Gibbons or Atkins (for Fyfe). BTW I didn't trade out Gawn (phew) thought I would wait and see how Mummy goes this week.

      Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:45

      Reckon Atkins for sure mate, only way Gibbons outscores him is if he kicks a bag of goals, at least Atkins is a hard nut who tackles a lot.
      Glad you didn't punt Gawn, imagine what he'll score when his D/E isn't 50%?

        UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:51

        I did hear something early in the week, I think it was on sen, that the Blues are going to rotate Gibbons through the mids. And yes Gawn would of scored HUGE if his d/e was good. Going to be hard to let him go now.

s c tragic · 12/04/2019 at 17:23

Houli out for Menadue, Lachy Weller out of Suns.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:30

    Nice…we get to see Menapoop play again 🙂

Northerner · 12/04/2019 at 17:25

VC and C this week. Can’t spilt them. Thoughts

Grundy into Neale
Or
Neale into Cripps

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 17:33

    Grundy against English Northerner…juicy!, I reckon Grundy into Neale..or Cripps against the Gold Coast, your choice.

    UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 17:35

    Grundy VC into Neale C ?

    NoLanguage96 · 12/04/2019 at 17:52

    Macrae into Neale for mine. No Greenwood Jack should run riot

    Northerner · 12/04/2019 at 18:04

    Cheers all

Doc_1 · 12/04/2019 at 17:40

Option 1: Westhoff to Boak or Dahlhouse (and which one)
Or
Option2:
Westhoff to Rozee
Scott to Libba

    Fred · 12/04/2019 at 17:51

    Boak

Dean · 12/04/2019 at 18:09

Hi community I'm in a bit of a conundrum of uncertainty.

I made my first official trade this round and traded out Scott to Stack, I needed to free up some cash in order to bring in Macrae next week.
I'm thinking of trading out Setterfield and bring in Schultz and this will give me $128,500 in the kitty to bring in Macrae in round 5

My current team is:
DEFENCE
Lloyd, Laird, Z Williams, Clark, Duursma, Burgess (McKay, Hore)

MIDFIELD
Cripps, Neale, Fyfe, Oliver, Treloar, Libba, Butters, Constable (Atkins, Gibbons, Stack)

RUCK
Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

FORWARD
Dangerfield, Heeney, Dahlhaus, Drew, Parker, Setterfield (Petruccelle, Balta)

My thoughts next week is to trade either Oliver to bring in Macrae?

NOTE: I generally don't trade out premiums this early but I don't like what I'm seeing regarding Oliver he hasn't been no where near as good and clean with the Sherrin, his clangers are costing him and low D/E

Your input/criticism is greatly appreciated as I am a little confused as to what is best…

    Fred · 12/04/2019 at 18:12

    I too am a bit disappointed with Oliver but there’s 0 chance that I trade him. I think your team is solid, don’t need to make trades just for the sake of it

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:15

    If you're gonna do trades this week to generate cash for next week, I'd think about upgrading someone in your fwd line, don't think Oliver to Macrae is a good trade, Oliver and the dees will bounce back.
    Think about going Libba to Macrae when Libba maxes out.

Harley · 12/04/2019 at 18:22

Need help deciding. I have $273,000 in bank after trading Fyfe to Marshall.

Thinking Setterfield to Tom Lynch Adelaide or Dahlhaus (I like Tom lunch draw coming up) bit of a pod
Or Lycett to Neale, McRae as keepers or M.crouch keeper also but bank extra $200,000 cash nearly.

Or other?

Team is

D: Crisp, Williams, Newman, B.Smith, Moore, Collins (scrimshaw, Clark
M: Cripps, Sloane, B.crouch, Rockliff, Sheed, Libertore, Constable, Butters (setterfeild, Scott, Atkins)
R: Grundy, Mumford
F: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Lycett, Marshall, Drew (Parker, Burgess)

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:27

    I'd actually forget about your midfield and fwd line for now and trade out Newman to Lloyd or Whitfield.

      Harley · 12/04/2019 at 18:37

      I was thinking that. But thought Newman still might come good and playing Gold Coast this week.

      Could go Clark up to Milera

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:42

        Clark still has a bunch more money to make Harley, and Newman has already entered the not making any more profit stage, you need solid regular scorers in the backline, not speculatives like Milera…just my opinion though mate..good luck.

    Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 18:32

    Why trade out Fyfe? He’s only out for this week! Setterfield isnt going to be the best cash cow but still has money to make. I wouldn’t go anywhere near Tom lynch!

      Harley · 12/04/2019 at 18:38

      I wanted Marshall and thought Fyfe might come back a little dusty and drop a bit of cash and can re-asses

        Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 19:00

        Fyfe dominated round 1 after not playing jlt. Concussion rarely effects a players output weeks later. Do you plan on keeping Marshall? I can’t see him being a premo which means your burning another trade taking him back out, and if you end up trading Fyfe back in that’s another trade. Really risky move!

    SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 18:49

    If it was me trading out Fyfe, I would be trading him with another keeper. Ask yourself is Marshall a keeper and are you going to trade Fyfe back in when he starts pumping out massive score. That's 2-3 trades wasted

      Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:51

      Hi Donkey, he's already done that..so no reversing now.

        Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:04

        Agree Donk, crazy stuff. Fyfe needed to go to another keeper. but whats done is done.
        I think hang on to lycett for a little longer he's good cover for mummy incase he gets injured he's not a young pup anymore.. Newman to whitfield/lloyd would be a good move imo. If your after a POD like you mentioned stewart looks fantastic.

        SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 21:35

        Yeah! I gathered that, just a future reference and those who are thinking of trading an injured Premo.
        What's done is done, he still have another trade to fix that Fyfe trade.
        Newman for Lloyd, Whitfield types at the backline.

    silversovereign · 12/04/2019 at 19:08

    Avoid lynch. Lycett to Neale or macrae for mine

John · 12/04/2019 at 18:23

Dang – I was counting on Gibons being my donut for the Capt loophole.

He has been selected! Go Capt Danger.

    UpBeat · 12/04/2019 at 18:43

    128 avg against GWS should be right mate.

Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 18:24

Traded Mundy for kelly last week, for a bonus 3 points. Watch Mundy go big this week with no fyfe. Traded dusty for boak this week, watch boak get injured and dusty come back and dominate next week.
I feel for the people who traded heeney or Grundy. Never trade your premos people!

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:45

    I traded Brayshaw to Neale this week…still feeling happy about it 🙂

      Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 18:55

      Brayshaw to Neale Surprises me, what more did you want from Brayshaw? I’m happy with his output, I’m expecting a 110 average from here or maybe more if Melbourne get rolling….

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:57

        He didn't do anything wrong Swanny, I just wanted Neale in this week and he was the man to go, not sure if Angus is a keeper yet but I know Neale is.

          Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 19:02

          Fair enough, just thought you’ve taken the chance picking him and he’s averaged 108 in a losing team first 3, then an 80 odd last night when he was virtually invisible first half and then had a bit of a knock in the third. Anyway dunno why I’m sticking up for him lol, can’t lose with Neale 👍

            Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:07

            It wasn't easy to do mate…but I couldn't see another way of getting him in anytime soon, sideways?…yeah a bit but I'm considering it an upgrade to make myself feel better.

              Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 19:18

              Nice, we are good at telling ourselves what we need to hear. But I’m just saying it one more time, you traded a 527k midfielder you started with averaging 108 after 3, ballsy, good luck, admittedly I understand why, Neale has been a rampaging animal.

                Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:21

                Aaaaand …loving it!, 'Maxwell Smart'…heheh

      Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 19:02

      If you’re bringing in Neale I can see why you are happy. Not sure I would’ve traded brayshaw if I had him though, he hasn’t scored that badly has he?

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:10

        Nah he'd done great Tommy, just his D/E was concerning for me, got less than he should've last week and this week, bad d/e too…all in all, it's a sideways but one hopefully I won't regret.

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 19:13

        Truth of the matter is the Dees look to be a poor SC scoring team this year. Chopping the ball up a lot as a team which hurts not just the individuals score but also others in the same team by not receiving the ball from a fellow team mate because the pass was horrendous. Like last nights game the Dees were losing the SC split while the game was tight and still lost the split by almost the same margin when the game was blown out late in the game. I owe you all a beer if anyone besides Gawn and Oliver averages more than 105 for the year from demon land

          Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:23

          Can't help feeling the same Dave, the Butcher Demons!…Gawn, Brayshaw, Oliver all chopped it up like drunken apprentice Butchers last night…costs points.

          Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 19:33

          Brayshaw will average 110, his disposal is questionable but he’ll get it together here and there for some big scores. I’m expecting at least one 150+ score from him on a night when the dees pummel someone.

      Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:37

      Russty!! Big call. Why is everyone assuming Neale is going to avg. 150+ this year? I hope it works out for you. Just be aware you are breaking two golden SC rules… Dont sideways trade Premo's and dont chase last weeks points. Ultimately, its you're plums on the chopping block, so I hope it turns out positively

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:48

        It was more the 2 80's in 4 games Saritz, and his bad D/E, reminded me of his past seasons, I need solid regular tons from my mid keepers, was just doing what probably needed to be done later anyway…and I had the moolah to do it. No more wondering now.
        I don't assume Neale will average 150 by any stretch, but 115 to 120 is achievable I think.

          Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:50

          Yeah, you need to back in your research/gut. Cheers

    Derek · 12/04/2019 at 19:28

    Yep. Mundy was my trade out last week. I’ll be watching him. He was on about 62% TOG until Fyfe went down, finished on 72%

      Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 22:05

      Mundy killing it, just rubbing salt in the wounds!

Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 18:25

Captain danger or Grundy? I was stupid enough to use my vc last night.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 18:44

    Flip a coin mate but I reckon Grundy will destroy Englishman.

      Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 19:04

      I was pretty set on Grundy, just wanted confirmation after I captained Fyfe last week 🙁 cheers mate!

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:26

        Good stuff Tommy 🙂

AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 18:37

Dayne Beams a late out with a migraine

    Zoolander · 12/04/2019 at 18:41

    Or gastro depending who you believe

Benjiherb · 12/04/2019 at 18:41

Beams soft as.. FFS.. who pulls out with a headache

    Swans2012 · 12/04/2019 at 18:42

    Says someone who has never had a migraine

    Tommy · 12/04/2019 at 19:08

    He had gastro during the week! where was this headache reported?

      Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:12

      I just heard on afl tonight it was a virus…lol

        TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 19:18

        So basically no one knows! We shall find out post match from bucks one would think

          Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:30

          Maybe his knob fell off?…lol

            TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 19:39

            Russsty!!! Thats not like you!! Hehehehehe

      Benjiherb · 12/04/2019 at 19:37

      Yeap gastro sounds a lot more likely than a head ache .

Yella · 12/04/2019 at 18:48

VC Grundy or Macrae?

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:03

    50-50 yella

      Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:06

      Grundy for me.
      he should really take advantage of english tonight.

    neil demons delight · 12/04/2019 at 21:04

    if only macrae could tackle zero to halftime

TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 19:02

Think i'm going to lock in Dusty – Libba. Not 100% sure on the trade as it feels like im going backwards but libba just needs 1 more 100+ score and remain relatively consistent and he should make enough money to warrant a trade. And derek brought up a good point it should hopefully be a nice switch to fyfe in the next couple of weeks if fyfe can come back a tad slow.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:05

    If it's any consolation Tommy, Libba is averaging exactly the same as Matt Crouch who is $ 564200, he's a profit machine at the moment.

    Derek · 12/04/2019 at 19:34

    It was doing my head in, but I’ve just done the same. Dusty to Libba

Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:10

Whose de boer going to follow around tomorrow, danger? kelly?
I have the VC on danger but getting cold feet & flirting with treloar tonight. pulled out a 140 last time i VC'd him

    TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 19:17

    Wouldn't be surprised if he went to Kelly tbh. He's been more damaging from centre clearances than danger has.

      Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:38

      yeah I'm not sure danger is all that taggable to be honest.
      I'm considering VC'n libba. real POD move he should have a field day.
      Can always C cripsy or danger if it fails

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 19:43

        Warning!…you have 7 minutes to comply!…heheh do it mate, I'd love to see that.

          Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:51

          regretting putting the VC on libba mate haha

            Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:53

            He's going ok mate, could still go big. They award more points in the 2nd half.
            At least you didn't go Treloar!

    Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:43

    Cameron gave nothing away in his press conf today too. But he did suggest they will change it up. So maybe he goes to whoever is getting on top

Shaun · 12/04/2019 at 19:26

Hey all is anyone keeping dusty?think the week off could get his head right and guns never loose there talent.

    Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:29

    We've already seen a few cases this year that those who stay strong get rewarded. Just ask Heeney owners who jumped off.

    Dusty may not reach the lofty heights of 2017, but he would be a very handy weapon at M8 towards years end! HOLD!

      dontblushbaby · 12/04/2019 at 19:37

      Agree, I want to, but I have Fyfe also on the bench, its a long season and I'm tempted to keep both but if I was to trade it would be Dusty, short gain pain for long time gain ? dunno

        Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:41

        Yeah, its a popular trade scenario this week. But are you going to get an advantage doing what everyone else is?

        Ultimately, we all have to just back ourselves in. Good luck with whatever way you go!

    One Touch Wonder · 12/04/2019 at 19:43

    SHARK MOVE. I am holding Dustin.

AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 19:46

Bottle of red on the table, VC on Grundy. Come on pies!!!

    Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 19:48

    VC on Grundy too. Should go large against not much. I might need some of that red if he doesnt

      AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 22:19

      Worked out pretty well mate

        Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 22:36

        Sure did!

SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 19:48

Grundy and Macrae is tempting to VC tonight. Gut is telling me to put it on The Bont.

    Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 21:09

    Nothing between the 3 at half time.

      SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 21:18

      Hoping Bont kicks a couple, should bumped his score up.

      SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 21:27

      Oh Gosh! SC Gods has finally struck me, The Bont is down the race. smh

Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:12

I think the CD crew went for a tea break halfway through the quarter …

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:15

    What a riveting first quarter ay?..I think my toenails need clipping.

      JEL · 12/04/2019 at 20:18

      My sock draw has never looked tidier

        Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:22

        😄

      Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:28

      I flicked over to Gardening Australia and received some weird advice … time to pull ya parsnip or pot daphne … seems like a good idea given the footy isn’t really distracting …

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:34

        Maybe Daphne could pull your Parsnip while you smoke some pot Lazza ;)..must be better than this game?

          Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:37

          We might get detention Russty 😂

            ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 20:39

            I eat Parsnip 😂

Steeeve · 12/04/2019 at 20:16

Grundy wins a free and has an effective kick, 3 points.
10 seconds later Mihocek wins a free and kicks straight to the Bulldogs. Four points.

    Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:23

    CD left their kids behind, or maybe one of their pets, to score whilst they had their tea break ..

      Steeeve · 12/04/2019 at 21:37

      That makes sense he caught back up keep going you beautiful big wingnut

Alferton · 12/04/2019 at 20:29

Thoughts please.

I have both dusty and Greene. Thinking of holding Dusty I have 9k in the bank. Looking at Greene to Marshall. I have 30 trades.

Thank you

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:39

    Do it Alf…better than having 350k worth of spud sitting on your bench.

    Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:39

    Hey Alf,
    Need more info .. what’s the rest of your team look like … 2 donuts isn’t a good idea .. what is your cover …
    Marshall would be fantastic if he was $200k cheaper ..

      Alferton · 12/04/2019 at 21:14

      Hi Lanza.
      My premium players are: Whitfield HurnWilliams. Cripps Oliver M Crouch Dusty Rocky Libba. Grundy Gawn. Danger Heeney

      Thanks.

        Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 21:38

        Hey Alf, that’s fairly solid.
        I’m guessing you are concerned about the bye’s …. otherwise you could go Dusty to Tim Kelly. If you don’t have DPP then leave him as a mid this week and then move him forward when you are able to bring in a mid premo. If Greene doesn’t play next week you could then go Greene to, say Stack, and pocket some good $$ for your first MID premo upgrade.

Jack · 12/04/2019 at 20:41

What’s the better option wanting to trade out Simpson:

If I were to trade him out would want either Stewart or Whitfield.
If I were to bring in Whitfield would require 2 trades compared to 1 with Stewart.

Which one thoughts?

    Lazza · 12/04/2019 at 20:46

    Hey Jack,
    You need to let your rookies fatten … so I’d go with the single trade at this time and work to getting Whitfield down the track.
    If Stewart is a final 6 DEF target for you I.e a keeper, then that would be my option.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:56

    Depends on what your second trade is Jack..selling a rookie before they've maxed out for a rookie with questionable job security is a waste.

Rick Grimes · 12/04/2019 at 20:46

Treloar having a shittter. Might have to ditch him fairly soon. Can't accept sub 100 performances week on week.

    GloryDays94 · 12/04/2019 at 22:10

    Might just ditch him and Dunkley this week… stuff both of them… and Mundy was the one I traded 😑 FML

      Maverick_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:17

      yup i also own him. I do not own neale, macrae or fyfe so this weeks a no brainer for me to get one in or bont's even a chance.
      Dunkley also gone. hope sydney stack stinks it so i don't need to use a trade there to get him in

Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 20:55

At the game that was hard to watch!

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 20:56

    Can you get a refund if you leave now Shake?

      Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 21:07

      Same seats every game here Russty. Unfortunately not!

        ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 21:14

        Loving them free trips to the moon 50 mtr penalties

ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 21:02

Suckling has been impressive this year. On my watch list now not just because of his first 3 scores but he is having another great game with JJ back in the team.
85,103,101, 67 half time.

Yeahnah · 12/04/2019 at 21:02

140 please VC Grundy, slow down Libba and Moore thanks

ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 21:25

The kicking at goal is the worst I have ever seen. 7 goals,16 behinds, 3 Not make the distance from 55 mtrs, 2 OTF

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:51

    Glad the game got better…I was thinking about doing my Tax.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 23:39

      Haha very early or late 😂

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 23:40

        Yeah last year's haha

AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 21:38

God we f*cking suck

Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 21:45

Just had look at sc scores have Grundy vc have Macrea and got in Bont for Fyfe. Need a big last qtr & hopefully a pies win 🤞

    SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 21:51

    Nice one, have all three as well. Was really torn on who to VC out of the 3, I went with Bont at the end hoping he'll have a big last qtr and kicks a goal.

    kinglear009 · 12/04/2019 at 22:35

    Love the Bont pick – couldn't fit him in but he's finally turned into the clean, contested beast. Very good chance of top 8.

      Shake_n_bake · 12/04/2019 at 22:46

      Watched his 1st 3 games. If he keeps playing on the ball definitely top 8

GloryDays94 · 12/04/2019 at 22:09

I give up for this week and if this keeps happening maybe even the year soon 👍

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:50

    No giving up allowed GD, soldier on and do the best you can bud.

      GloryDays94 · 12/04/2019 at 23:09

      No Idea what to do with my team anymore… Treloar has had two 80s in a row and Dunkley will have lost too much cash to even be able to get him to a good player….

        Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 23:15

        Maybe go Dunkley to Marshall next week if Marshall does well, and Treloar to a premo mid, that'll make you feel better mate.

        Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 00:01

        30 trades for a reason GD ! Don’t get too down on yourself! I think Treloar will come good, Dunkley might be worth a correctional to Dahlhaus since he’s still cheap?

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 00:59

    feel ya Glory,,,im in the same boat,,

SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 22:11

C'mon Bont 10mins haven't touched the ball stuck 34 posses.

    SC_Donkey · 12/04/2019 at 22:29

    Well. The Bont came close, Cripps will be my Hope to save my Team. 3 weeks in a row had Grundy as VC, C choice and goes big when I don't VC, C this week.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 12/04/2019 at 22:23

How many coaches traded out Grundy after round 1 again?
3 round avg 143.3 🐐

    gator59 · 12/04/2019 at 22:25

    Laughing all the way to the bank … Smashed his BE of 130

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:49

    I was stupid enough to not start him at all, does that count? 🙂

      gator59 · 12/04/2019 at 23:32

      Yep

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 12:53

      Stoopid is as stoopid does ….

      Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 13:16

      How stupid… me too… dumb and dumber… I swapped Grundy out for Gawn last day…

Connor · 12/04/2019 at 22:28

Last minute decision before round 1 to start Crisp over Whitfield is beginning to really hurt…

    dognino · 13/04/2019 at 06:42

    I did the same thing

TOPHAWK1 · 12/04/2019 at 22:31

Dunkley……… I knew it. He is the Billings of 2018. So glad I punted him for Libba today. No looking back now. More cash, more SC points, and no more side way trade BS lectures to deal with! Grundy VC is the little cherry on top.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:48

    Go Libba!…mr consistent!, and dunkley stunk-ley

    COREYSC · 12/04/2019 at 22:50

    My patience is wearing thin I’m still scarred from Billings last year. Welcome Travis Boak to my team if he scores 100 tomorrow!

    Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 22:53

    He is good late in games Libba. Was on about 80 with 5 minutes to go

    hedski · 12/04/2019 at 22:57

    I thought Dunkley played a lot better than he was scored. Ripped off.
    Clutch goal, link ups, tackles, soccered the ball fwd for another score.
    60 points at 3qtr to 73 full time is bullshit.

    kinglear009 · 12/04/2019 at 22:57

    Punted him for Kelly – no patience for a player playing the wrong role and he's got leather allergies this season.

    Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 23:57

    good call Hawk. I went to Boak today. We will find out soon enough if it was the right thing to do.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 08:40

      Cheers Holty. I needed to make some tough decisions after my disaster round last week. Boak will smash it against the Tigers. Good pick mate.

    SC_Donkey · 13/04/2019 at 01:55

    As much as I want to get rid of Dunkley something in the back of my mind is telling not to. Maybe it's waiting for the right time to offload him or waiting for him come good, not really sure what my mind is telling. But it's surely not letting my finger to press that trade button.
    Good job to all that offload him, to a better SC relevant.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 08:45

      Cheers Doncs. I had the cash to punt Scott and Dunkley at the same time after trading in Mumford last week. I remember how I waited and waited for Billings to come good last year and it just never happened. Not saying that Dunkley will be the same, but I was not prepared to wait and find out. Call me impatient!! Hehehehe. Hopefully Dunkley will improve for you as he did play OK last night. Thought he deserved at least 90 for his effort last night. Good luck for the rest of the round mate! TH

        Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 09:16

        Not sure how you can find a 90 out of last night's performance. 15 disposals, 10 of which were uncontested. 5 uncontested marks, and only 3 tackles. Plus just the 1 goal and zero goal assits. What he scored is what he deserved.

        Last year when he was scoring well he was racking them up and going 7+ tackles.

TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 22:35

Bit of a weird one tonight. Grundy VC obviously stoked with. Macrae a little under par but if an average game is 110 i aint complaining. Brought Libba in this week. But 3 scores under 80 sours it a little. Dunkley and Crisp really beginning to worry me and these poor scores becoming more prominant. Moore quiet after a good first half but hes been good this year cant complain.
Mixed bag of results but i guess its expected with 6 in one game.
Go pies!!!

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 13:34

    Moore was 52 at half time

    Could have done better

Nick · 12/04/2019 at 22:37

Hi community,
Who would you start between Parker and Pretruccelle?
Eagles should win easy and saints have a tough game against the hawks

    TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 22:40

    Petrucelle only scored 56 and 58 in eagles wins. Doesnt have a high ceiling so i'd go Parker

    Rick Grimes · 13/04/2019 at 08:41

    I'd start Pet. I reckon the Weagles will go huge and he's a chance to kick a few. I'm expecting 80odd.

      DEE · 13/04/2019 at 08:55

      Parker

GloryDays94 · 12/04/2019 at 22:39

MacRae absolutely robbed tonight… Should have been 120 atleast. Treloar is pathetic and Dunkley is gone, don't give a crap who I trade him to the bloody useless prick….. only a few rounds in and already over SC for the year… grrrrrrrr

    TommyC99 · 12/04/2019 at 22:42

    Adams definitely taking points off him. I noticed in those break away moments which would usually be Treloar it was Adams.

      Browncow · 12/04/2019 at 23:35

      Agree. Adams was great late. Hit a few targets too.

    Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 00:10

    I feel a bit like you GD. My team looks good on paper, but things are just not going my way this season. We need to tough it out mate………. but shit it can be frustrating

      Rick Grimes · 13/04/2019 at 08:40

      I want to bin Treloar but but it's undisciplined. We need to hold premos and get those rookies fat. One you're full premo and if you have the trades, then you move him on. Otherwise I guatantee you'll be out of trades with 5 rounds to go.

    TelescopicCox · 13/04/2019 at 10:45

    Exact same boat with Treloar. Pies mids were beaten over the park. Hopefully they can turn it around and he can move to 110+ avg

kinglear009 · 12/04/2019 at 22:40

Several things.
Purged Dunkley from the team this week for Kelly – playing a long game there. He's outside the realm of the Sherrin.

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:59

    Good trade King, Dunkley will probs only improve his scoring if one of the doggie's mids go down.

      TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 08:47

      Dont say that Russsty! We need superman Libba to keep going, and going, and going, and then go some more! No injuries in the doggies midfield please. Just said my little prayer. LOL

Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 22:42

I kept a couple of screenshots of a few peoples comments on here about those of us who chose Grundy (and Gawn) after his 81 in round 1. The comments suggested they knew Grundy was going to be not good and how good they were for not selecting him (but in a less diplomatic way). Ive decided to just leave it alone though and not name names. I just want to reiterate 4 rounds in I am happy with my selection of Grundy who is now averaging 127.5 and has smashed out a huge captains (VC via loophole) score. He looks set to average inexcess of 130 for the year

    Russty_ · 12/04/2019 at 22:58

    That was just unfounded 'rule change' panic Saritz…turns out the rule changes don't really affect much at all.

    Rick Grimes · 13/04/2019 at 08:35

    He rucked against no one. Just saying.

      Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 09:20

      He rucked against English last night Grimes, and dominated him. He dominated Nank 2 weeks ago and dominated hicky and vardy last week.

    Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 09:18

    Why would you keep screen shots, who cares what the silly people that didn't pick him think

kinglear009 · 12/04/2019 at 22:45

Funny note on Macrae – no teams seem to care about tagging him. Do we think it's because so many of his disposals are outside the contest? Plays a style somewhere between Jake Lloyd and Tom Mitchell – no wonder CD love him!!

    Saritz · 12/04/2019 at 22:47

    A little unfair. Macrae is a tough inside midfielder too. Dont judge him just on tonight

      kinglear009 · 12/04/2019 at 22:56

      Perhaps – I guess something about his play style rubs me the wrong way. With Libba in, he's started drifting around the pack like a vulture. Very surprised he cops better numbers than the Bont, who looks like a star.

        Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 08:51

        That's a joke of a comment, macrea gets alot of the tough ball and shovels it out, and he's often there tackling too. Bont is way over hyped in my opinion, gets the ball and bombs it long. The difference between bont and macrea turnovers would be huge

Dunkley is Done.

    Dan · 13/04/2019 at 07:19

    Yep, I was going to trade him, but decided to give him another week.
    Now I’m thinking this is the week he goes.

    Dan · 13/04/2019 at 07:22

    Apparently he had 0 centre bounce attendances for the first 3 quarters.

      Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:40

      No room for him. The dogs rucks are very poor, would struggle to get ball anyway.

AuroraBorealis?! · 12/04/2019 at 23:34

That was an ugly, ugly win by the boys, will need to improve dramatically to have any chance against the top 6. In my ladder predictor for the year i had us sitting at 7th place, which i think is accurate if we can't kick it up a notch

The Ranger · 12/04/2019 at 23:37

Lovin the Grundy VC

SK23 · 12/04/2019 at 23:45

Hi all, please help me with the following decisions:

I'm not trading out Fyfe so I'll need to field either Atkins (Cats) or C.Jones (Crows) in the midfield. Whom do I pick?!

Also I need to trade out Westhoff, is bringing in Rozee a good trade? I still have 30 trades left
Thanks

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 00:08

    I think Atkins should score better this week, 0 tackles last week, I reckon he would have got a kick up the backside this week.

    Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 00:09

    Put the E on Atkins. If he scores well, putFyfe on field to get Atkins score. If he has a bad game, put Jones on field. Simple

    Sharkmove_King · 13/04/2019 at 10:48

    I reckon Westhoff might go alright this week. Cameron kicked 7 last week against the Ranceless Tigers

Holty01 · 12/04/2019 at 23:54

All those coaches bagging the ones who started Grundy and Gawn have gone very quiet these last 2 rounds. I wonder why?

    DavidC · 13/04/2019 at 06:38

    I traded him in this week, also had the C there until just before kickoff then switched to Macrae. Ah well, what could have been … at least I have him.

      Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 08:12

      Nice. Good trade in.

    Rick Grimes · 13/04/2019 at 08:32

    Don't have Grundy. Probably wouldn't have Neale and Lloyd if I did. It's a trading game. You buy low, sell high. If I can get Grundy for $600-$650k at some stage around the byes I'm a winner. But yeah, good points. Nice one.

Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 00:00

Didn’t put the VC on Grundy but stuffed up my loophole in any event with my only non playing bench player being Bines ( Grundy and Gawn already played and kept Bines on Bench). In a strange way, I feel better now as wouldn’t have been able to take Grundy’s score in any event .
So the big Question now is Neale or Cripps for Captain?

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 09:58

    I posted on Thursday about Gawn and Grundy playing early so make sure Bines was on field.

    There is always someone that misses that little trap, but now with Scott being rested there is a loophole for most

    NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:13

    Same dilemma. Leaning towards Neale

Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 00:29

Cant get my VC and C right, was going Grundy and pulled the pin , what an idiot, i hate this game, im done, if you dont start well its over, which is the case for me, see ya next year,,,

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 00:38

    Don't be a sooky LaLa mate, my team's shite too, just gotta battle on ;)….I don't even have Grundy, but when he comes up against someone as pasty as English, you gotta VC him.
    Marathon not a sprint remember, take your licks and battle on bud..you're not permitted to give up because you're in a few of the same Leagues I am 🙂
    All quitters will be blacklisted next year hahaha
    P.S Leagues aren't over until the Grand Final, rank is ok and all but Leagues with your mates is where the real fun is.

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 00:47

      Ha, just seems so disheartning when you start terrible, always behind the eight ball, very hard to make up ground mate,,

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 00:48

        how are you looking his round Russty?

          Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 00:50

          At least i have Gary Moore to keep me company and happy, LOL

          Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 00:54

          I've got Fyfe on the bench, but I brought Neale in this week, will probs lose most of my League games to guys with Grundy VC, but I'm not worried, still got 27 trades left..and plenty of time to catch up.

        Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 00:49

        Just one move at a time mate…to improve your side, remember, a lot of guys who you think have better teams and start better than you, have burned a lot more trades than you, you can make up serious ground in the second half of the season, soldier on bud, it'll be ok.
        In Leagues, you only need to make the top 8 to have a chance at being League champ.

    TommyC99 · 13/04/2019 at 08:40

    If you have trades left, the byes are where you can make a whole lot of ground. Just play the long game and it will come. I also started a bit below average, and I can never seem to get that amazing start so many others do, but that’s SC. Lot of it is just luck!

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 09:46

    I hear ya. I’m having my worse start ever if you only look at my overall rank, but I’m actually feeling really good about my team and confident I can improve.

    Early in the season you get people who get lucky, you get people who burn trades and they eventually fade away.

    Overall rank in the early weeks can be distorted because scores are fairly close. 500 pts can mean 30,000 rankings.

    The byes are important and just make sure you set yourself up well over the byes, especially the round 13.

    Leagues are great to win, but you need trades in hand at the end

    Plus I have a good feeling about the Hawks this year. Don’t be surprised to see TMitch back if we are in finals contention

      Derek · 13/04/2019 at 09:55

      I just had a look at my history in 2015 I finished top 50 but was 36000 ranked after 3 rounds.

      The next 3 rounds there was injury carnage and I just got lucky and missed them all. It’s a luck game, BUT there were some injuries you see coming and I try to avoid those players.

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 13:19

        I will never give up boys, but i want to LOL

Gav · 13/04/2019 at 07:52

Bailey Scott is the only way I can loop Grundy's score. Here's hoping he stays as emergency 😓

    TommyC99 · 13/04/2019 at 08:36

    Pretty sure he was rested Gav, think you should be safe

      Gav · 13/04/2019 at 10:41

      Cheers Tommy

Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 08:03

So glad I didn't start Grundy. Took Goldy avg 94 used the 150k to change dusty to Neale avg 144, got rozee avg 89 instead of burgess. I couldn't be happier, if I took grundy I would have had a 700k player avg 140 and a dusty and a burgess. Stuff that👍

    Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 08:38

    I disagree fellow Hawks.

    Grundy will need to be in your team at some point, he will outperform Goldy.

    Good call on starting Neale and Rozee, but you will still need Grundy

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 08:51

    Fair point mate! Just make sure Grundy is your number one upgrade target over the next few weeks though. Grundy will let Goldy disappear in the rear view mirror this season.

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 09:36

    Who was your R2?

      Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 09:55

      Gawn

        Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:37

        You could have started Grundy instead of Gawn

          Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 14:45

          Yep that would have been a great decision Congrats to all those that did especially as they started the same price just about. Grundy easily no1 ruck

Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 08:54

Libba looking like a keeper, m9 at the worst

    dontblushbaby · 13/04/2019 at 09:14

    Agree, started vey slow last night but still punched a ton

    Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 09:14

    Would love to own him but couldn’t bring him in. All my midfield has been scoring well so had no one to trade out. He would be in my side if I had a Dusty or someone similar. Good work to those who started him

      Derek · 13/04/2019 at 09:34

      Did the Dusty to Libby trade. Went to bed happy.

        TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 10:12

        Me too Derek. Punted Dunkley for Libba. Slept like a baby!

          Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:29

          Maybe it was the game last night that put me to sleep

          Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:35

          I watched a fair bit of the game, seriously at full time I had to check fanfooty to see if Dunkley played.

          The Bont is huge. He is seriously good. Last nights score didn’t reflect the effort he put in.

          With Libba back, The Bont in the guts and Macrae doing what he does, there is no room for Dunkley in guts.

          And with such a poor ruck division at the dogs, you need to be big and strong to steal the hit outs.

          The Bont has found his way into my watch list for a top 8 midfielder this year.

          Could seriously effect Macrae as well.

Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 09:11

A big shout out to shake in one of my leagues. Sitting on 1082 after 8 played. Could be in for a big one mate. Good luck

KKP · 13/04/2019 at 09:39

Would appreciate some advice on trading in D.Sheed it T.Kelly. Leaning towards Sheeds. Thanks 👍

    Sharkmove_King · 13/04/2019 at 10:42

    I prefer Kelly. If you started Sheed well done, but I wouldn't be bringing him in now at this price. Played alot forward last week (with Gaff back) and had 0 tackles. He's not gonna kick 3 every week.

      TelescopicCox · 13/04/2019 at 10:43

      I’d back in Kelly. He’ll be a top 6 FWD where Sheed probably won’t crack top 10 mids

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:28

    Yep. Kelly. Might as well get him now.

Davo · 13/04/2019 at 09:45

Hi community, I was thinking of trading Cogs to Neale before Neale becomes totally unaffordable. I know its a sideways trade, but could be the last chance to get Neale in. Spent no trades so far. Thoughts please community. Cheers.

    KSinny · 13/04/2019 at 10:29

    Not worth the trade, Cogs only had 1 bad game

      DEE · 13/04/2019 at 10:35

      HOLD

    Sharkmove_King · 13/04/2019 at 10:40

    I don't think Neale will be unaffordable, just wait till that 170 goes out of the system….Had a great season so far, very good game last week but his score did get a nice boost from some late heroics.

      Nice_Person · 13/04/2019 at 12:05

      Shark you serious mate, Neale was well ahead of everyone every quarter

    Davo · 13/04/2019 at 10:42

    Thanks for your feedback guys.

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 11:27

    Neale has started well, see how he is going in another month. Still lots of value in midfield. I’ve even tried to trade Neale out of my draft team this week.

    Hold Cogs

TelescopicCox · 13/04/2019 at 10:26

My POD picks are really hurting my season. Crisp way too inconsistent and Treloar hasn’t come on. Worth a trade next week?

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 10:54

    I have Crisp too. Really disappointed with him. I dont have Heeney. Did not start with him. Very tempted to just punt Crisp out via DPP for Heeney next week. Will take some serious talking me out of it this week.

DEE · 13/04/2019 at 10:36

How many trades left? I’m on 25…

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 10:52

    I am on 26.

    One Touch Wonder · 13/04/2019 at 11:23

    I have 30. No trades this week either.

    Pranav · 13/04/2019 at 11:23

    30 but i still have dusty and dunkley

    AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 11:27

    29, used my only trade to go from Billings to Rockliff, which based off of this weeks results we will see if thats a waste or not. I didn't make full premium last year and had my worst season ever, so im being much more strict with trades in 2019.

    KSinny · 13/04/2019 at 11:33

    29, my only trade has been Dusty to Sloane

    DavidC · 13/04/2019 at 11:49

    I have 26, need to pause for a few weeks. Crisp is the only stain left.

    iamme · 13/04/2019 at 12:02

    29 traded out Dusty for Neale this week

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 12:27

    29 bit probably using 1 this weekend

    Finnius · 13/04/2019 at 15:40

    30.

Tristan · 13/04/2019 at 10:44

Hey community!
Is it worth spending my saved emergency cash and trading out Billings for Marshall to upgrade Bailey Scott to Lachie Neale?
Cheers!

    Swans2012 · 13/04/2019 at 10:55

    Billings averaging 94, to me he is doing fine, not on the chopping block for me, I’d find another way….

Tommo09 · 13/04/2019 at 12:28

VC on Danger or Neale?

    DEE · 13/04/2019 at 12:52

    Danger

Guest · 13/04/2019 at 12:43

G'day community. Have I missed the boat on Constable/Rozee ?? or should I wait for Stack/other rookies on the bubble soon? Couldn't trade them in last week, had other issues to fix.

    Funkhouser · 13/04/2019 at 12:46

    Yep wait on Stack

help · 13/04/2019 at 13:08

Yeo to Neale or hold?

    Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 13:12

    Neale will be more expensive next week and Yeo’s value will drop.. so timing is now… but only do it if you are wiping Yeo for the year..

NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:11

Neale or Cripps for the C?

    Daniel · 13/04/2019 at 13:26

    Go cripps as captain, went 170 against Gold Coast last year and no reason why he can’t do that again.

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 13:28

    Im going Neale into Cripps

      NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:37

      I went Macrae last night unfortunately. Gotta make the call!

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 13:39

        Take Cripps then mate, but really cant go wrong with either,

          NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:40

          Yeah I just can't see Cripps not destroying GC

        Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 13:43

        I went Macrae into Neale. Considering Cripps as well but am going to stick with Neale

          NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:48

          AAHHH its so hard. My opponent went Grundy VC so its a big call. The bombers also never tag…. Maybe I'll just flip a coin

            NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 13:56

            Heads it is. Go Crippa 🙂

              Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 13:57

              Sorted like a champion LOL

              Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 14:43

              Tell me you didn’t? Lachie Neale 13 touches and 46 SC points at qtr time.

                NoLanguage96 · 13/04/2019 at 18:20

                I went with Cripps. If anyone is gonna beat 140 its him

James · 13/04/2019 at 13:23

Do I trade Selwood to Whitfield or keep him?

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 13:26

    Trade mate, Sellwood looked good in jlt but not so much in the season proper, getting a little long in the tooth, wont be top 10 mid,

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 14:06

Poor Callan Ward, has probably done an ACL. Just saw vision of him crying on the bench, i feel awful for him. First game back from injury as well

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 14:06

    Yeah that sucks, saw that, poor bloke, great footy player,,,

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 14:09

    Yeah hate to see that..rough break for Ward, it was his other knee too. Could be the last we see of him.

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 14:10

      Yeah that would be a shit way to end for such a champion

    neil demons delight · 13/04/2019 at 14:42

    Been a great player just got got him onfield too in drafts

Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 14:44

Real Deal Neale, 47 for the qtr so far WOW

    Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 14:46

    Pretty happy I have the C on him at this point. Long way to go though.

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 14:48

      Sure is Rocksta, i have the vc on him,

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:05

    Aaaaaand he stops scoring, nice one jinxy lol

      Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:09

      Yea, true

      Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:19

      Looks like he’s gotten going again Russty

        Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:19

        Yay! 🙂 Was a bit worried after that corky to the butt he got.

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 16:12

      I;ll give you jinxy in a minute Hahaha

BlueBaggerJosh · 13/04/2019 at 14:47

As soon as I trade in Dahlhaus, please don’t burn me. That hore 86 on the bench is killing me as I watch Clark spud it up, maybe tomahawk can gift him a goal again or something

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 14:54

hey NDD, was it intentional to leave Hore on the field this round? or did you not get to changing it before the lockout on thursday? That could be what gets you up this round, J.Clark only on 19 points at half time

    neil demons delight · 13/04/2019 at 15:42

    Wish i could say it was AB didn/t think hewould play so i was looping clark gotta win some

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 15:03

Sneaky miers pick.
Likey so far. ..

    SC_Donkey · 13/04/2019 at 15:21

    Same Trigga. Clark on there hand hmp! Not worried so much about Clark most coaches will have on field.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 16:38

      Whoops sorry donk

      Put the moz on him big time

kinglear009 · 13/04/2019 at 15:14

Oh no, Danger in danger

    dontblushbaby · 13/04/2019 at 15:26

    Nothing in it imo

ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 15:25

Clark is annoying on field but who wouldn't have him on field

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:26

    I benched him this week, he copped a whack earlier, shoulder to the chin.

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 15:28

      Dodged one Russty

        Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 15:31

        Still have Kelly and Williams on field mate..hehe hope they can do something / anything in the remaining time.

    Shake_n_bake · 13/04/2019 at 15:49

    I started Hore not Clark

      dontblushbaby · 13/04/2019 at 16:03

      On my bench, he did cop a whack to face just before half time

Finnius · 13/04/2019 at 15:33

Looks like Williams is copping a slight forward tag by Ablett – stopping him from getting those cheapies off of HB.

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 15:35

Had Whitfield in my team all preseason until i saw an article saying he'd be playing forward which scared me off. Wish i never saw it

SC_Donkey · 13/04/2019 at 15:35

Whitfield you gun! So glad I picked you over Lloyd to start the season. Lloyd welcome to my team in a few weeks.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 15:36

Whitfield about to take mantle of #1 defender

GloryDays94 · 13/04/2019 at 15:41

WTF… won't even go past 2000 this week with some of these scores… how the hell do you keep going with SC with pathetic scores like Kelly/Williams has had today and Treloar/Dunkley last night

Finnius · 13/04/2019 at 15:46

Imagine going Heeney to Kelly two weeks ago…

    Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 15:48

    guilty. He doesn’t look fit either. Wonder if that ankle is causing him problems.

Dan · 13/04/2019 at 15:51

Thoughts on Caleb Daniel?

    Finnius · 13/04/2019 at 15:53

    I picked him up in Draft. If you look at the second half of last year when he was playing off half back he was putting up some very good scores. Good be a sneaky top 8 forward.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 13/04/2019 at 16:05

    Please don’t mention him I traded in Dahlhaus instead this week😒

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:26

    Looks like a Pokemon, plays better in the backline than forward, gutsy little bugger.

Finnius · 13/04/2019 at 15:56

Lachie Whitfield just does not stop running. Absolutely elite player. Kicking myself I didn't start him.

ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 16:08

Just that kinda game today ain't it. Unless you have Whitfield, the other popular players are just pure stink

    GloryDays94 · 13/04/2019 at 16:14

    I'm not even going to go past 2000 this week… maybe even 1900

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 16:16

      cats are stinking it up!!

Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 16:14

Cats are chocking

BlueBaggerJosh · 13/04/2019 at 16:15

Kick the winning goal Dahlhaus you 🥔

BlueBaggerJosh · 13/04/2019 at 16:20

Dahlhaus, Danger, Clark, Constable 😱

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 16:21

Just about ready to put a line through this week, Danger 66, Constable 58, T.Kelly 39, J.Clark 41, Z.Williams 60. And both of my tips are wrong so far for saturday

    Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 16:35

    same AB. Ur side must be similar to mine

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 18:03

      My side's similar to a lot of peoples, very cookie cutter with my only two PODs being Rockliff and Sloane

    JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 17:21

    I've put a line through my whole season, AB, just trying to salvage what I can out of it.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 18:03

      Surely it can't be that bad John, whats your team name?

        JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 18:16

        Black Flag, it's in my profile.

    iamme · 13/04/2019 at 17:50

    I feel ya Aurora, i've got all those bastards too!!

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 17:59

      Been a rough round so far

    Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 19:37

    I traded Kelly in just before the game .. should have just kept Greene .. at least I would have got Typo’s score…

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 21:36

    Shocking season AB, no more GnR strategy, clearly with the ever changing rules of this once great game come changes with this game we play and sometimes enjoy, is that why soooooo many people stop playing every year? goes down each year by the thousands!!!

Dan · 13/04/2019 at 16:21

Does anyone know what happened to Danger?

    TommyC99 · 13/04/2019 at 16:25

    Tagged by De Boer, was very quiet in the second half

      Dan · 13/04/2019 at 16:32

      Cool, thanks for that.

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:30

    Yeah…he sucked.

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 18:09

    De Boer tagged Kelly first half until he was a beaten man. Then he tagged Danger out of game. Completely stopped him dead

TommyC99 · 13/04/2019 at 16:23

Had 4 players in the cats game, all scored less than 70. Danger, Clark, Williams and Constable all disappointing, but the fact most are quite common is a slight consolation. Looks like it could be a tough week this week. Glad i dodged the Kelly bullet, almost brought him in this week.

JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 16:44

Finally, a trade in has worked for me, thank you Whitfield.

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:55

    Nice one John, I almost went Williams to Stewart today too, should've just bloody done it.

      JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 17:06

      It was good to finally get something right Russty, I traded out Heeney too soon, wait a week and all is fine, I kept Simpson a week too long and it cost me 53k, now it looks like Dunkley might have to go next week after giving him another chance this weekend. I'm virtually rebuilding my team from scratch, at least I nailed most of the rookies.

    Holty01 · 13/04/2019 at 17:53

    nice work john

Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:47

Nice little 3 round average from your pod pick Merrett, Derek 🙂

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 18:03

    Thanks mate. He looked sharp today. Hunted the ball. BOG by a fair margin.

    Bird next week

      Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:04

      Happy days mate!…where are those haters now?..haha

      Derek · 13/04/2019 at 18:06

      Norf next week

Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 16:50

Dilema, take Neales 131 or keep the C on Crippa??

    Maverick_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:51

    you'd take that.. imagine if crippa spudded it like danger today? it happens

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 16:54

      Yeah i know Mav but ill be dirty if he goes big against GC! shocking week, might just srape 2000

        Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 16:59

        I'm taking it Hawk, after last week having the C on Fyfe.

          Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 17:09

          Its the sensible thing to do and its done

    Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:26

    Neale got 140

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 17:47

      Wow they rounded that up, no brainer now Rocksta

Benjiherb · 13/04/2019 at 17:01

Trading gawn to Mumford get 300k ? Thoughts

    TommyC99 · 13/04/2019 at 17:08

    Definitely not. Gawn won't drop in price that much with his 86 falling out of his average. And even if he was going to it would still be a firm no. You will be having to trade him back in anyway + the points you will lose during the time you don't have him will be costly

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:08

    Reckon he'll get rested at times, you'd need backup.

    JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 17:08

    No

    SC_Donkey · 14/04/2019 at 12:51

    Is gawn injured? Is he under performing? Ask yourself that question.

Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:26

My opponent has Rocky. I’m toast

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:46

    So much for the after effects of concussion ay?..hope Fyfey boy does the same next week.

Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 17:47

How big a spud is Balta???

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:50

    Right there with Stack, Butters, Rozee and Westhoff so far.
    Balta isn't very good at hitting targets though…if he gets it.

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 18:32

      Not good at anything!!

        Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:38

        He'll be good at not making any money this week lol

JohnDJ59 · 13/04/2019 at 17:49

Butters 11 at HT, I know he's a rookie, but you expect at least a 60 pt game from the good ones.

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 17:51

    Hes been good up until today, but we all have him, shocking week John

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:56

    Don't have Butters but have Kelly filling in for him this week with his spud rookie score.

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 17:51

Now Rocky, all you have to do is not get knocked out in the third quarter again, can you do that for me buddy?

Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 17:53

Haven’t had 1 game burn me so badly in a long time, lucky I had Whitfield.
Danger, kelly, constable, Clark and Williams. Was projected to get 2350 before this, will be lucky to get 2100 now haha!

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 17:57

    Constable is a pass the rest were crap

      Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 17:59

      I've got Atkins filling in for Fyfe Dave, he did pretty well.

    GloryDays94 · 13/04/2019 at 18:01

    Don't complain about 2100. I won't pass 2000

      Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 19:19

      Wasn’t complaining, just making a point of the change 1 game has made! Notice I finished with a “haha”. Sounds like you’ve had a rough week though mate!

    Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:09

    Same

ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 17:53

Can't wait to flick some of these rookies away. Just horrendous

    Rocksta_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:10

    I’m hearing ya

One Touch Wonder · 13/04/2019 at 17:59

I’ve pulled off another stunning SHARK MOVE. First trade of the year. Dustin to Mumford.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 18:19

GnR coping it royally this weekend … 😖

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:40

    Be interesting to see what the top score is this week.

Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:23

When Lynch kicked that goal and then took a dive when Burton pushed him, and got a double goal out of it, that sort of thing can really change a game.
I thought the AFL was gonna crack down on staging for frees?
Lynch should've been reported for that.

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 18:27

    That is disgraceful, can you see this game getting slowly ruined????

      Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 18:32

      By decisions like that..yeah, Ump should've just waved it off..or warned Lynch for staging.

    neil demons delight · 13/04/2019 at 18:47

    could be the game Should be reported

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 19:21

    That double goal turned out to be handy, I’d be pretty annoyed if I was a port fan

    JEL · 13/04/2019 at 19:29

    Didn't mind the tumble & roll, as he popped straight back up again.
    Didn't see it as staging for a free.

    Was incredibly surprised when they paid one though, players get pushed after the kick all the time.
    They're going to wear out the whistle if they start paying all of them.

    Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 19:35

    Come off it Russty… he was clearly pushed in the back after he kicked the ball.. didn’t see any staging or diving…. don’t worry though the umps more than made up for it at the other end in the last quarter … interesting though that Rocky wasn’t tagged … such a high SC score for little impact on the game…

      Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 19:51

      Hi Laz, yeah I saw he was pushed and paid a push in the back but he also went straight to ground and came up with a guilty look on his face.
      Just think it's a silly rule, players get pushed all the time after they're over the boundary etc, why should the goal line be any different

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 20:58

        for a bloke that size to go to ground that easy its clearly a milking free like Revolt(ing) does, disgraceful,

          Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 21:12

          That's my point Hawk, who gives a shit if he gets pushed in the back after he kicks a goal and out of the field of play?…only those over-reacting Umpires.
          That was a shit decision, so bloody soft.

            Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 21:29

            exactly mate, i agree, just be a man when you play a mans sport, or go play soccer!!!!

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:17

    Ended up winning game for them

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 23:25

      Hope your not condoning the actions Derek??? that is not what this game is about!

        Glass Houses · 13/04/2019 at 23:38

        Lynch isn’t the first and won’t be the last playing for a free kick – happens every game including and especially by Hawks players.

          Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 23:42

          Good on ya tool

            nankthetank · 14/04/2019 at 00:32

            Can't blame Lynch in this situation, it wasn't a ridiculous dive and players are gonna try do what they can to get the win. Shouldn't ping Lynch for diving but also shouldn't have been a free

          _Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:20

          Give it a rest mate there are far bigger culprits than the hawks

ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 18:42

Rockliff you pig!

Alferton · 13/04/2019 at 18:57

Looks like Balta may not even make his break even of 24 this week. On 15 points 10 minutes to go. Next week trade to anyone.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 19:13

Fabulous performance by the Tigers!!! Tiger tuff!! Under manned, no Dusty, no worries!! That's how it is done.

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 19:21

    Are you a hawk or a tiger? True colours coming out 😉

    JEL · 13/04/2019 at 19:23

    Maybe because of no Dusty, no worries!!

      dontblushbaby · 13/04/2019 at 19:52

      Yellow n Black

        FearTheBeard · 13/04/2019 at 20:23

        UP THE MIGHTY TIGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS!

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 21:10

    just goes to show how overrated Dusty is and has been!!

JEL · 13/04/2019 at 19:20

Should have stuck with Constable over Butters

Jester · 13/04/2019 at 19:24

It's game of thrones round on foxtel this weekend. This was meant to be a promotional exercise, and not a ironic omen of the massacre that was to occur. I know nuthin Jon Snow! Can they rename GMHBA "Red wedding stadium.

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 19:52

    Yep all our hopes of decent scores were all burned up by those Dragons this week jester lol

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 21:14

      Please no, this is football, not a tv show chat site!!! seriously this game is going to shit enough without this ratings grab!!! absolute joke!!!

Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 19:25

Thanks for 23 butters, the 1 week I need to field you! Just adding to this wonderful week of sc

    Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 19:42

    Ya not alone Tommy…

      Big G · 13/04/2019 at 19:50

      Useless prick went backwards in the last quarter.

Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 19:49

I’m putting all my Monopoly money on GWS for the flag …. impressive..

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 19:50

Thankyou for repaying the faith Rocky, i really appreciate it 🙂

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 20:09

    Good one AB…good to have a few wins, I think I might be headed for a record low score this round lol

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 21:17

      Apart from Grundy and Rocky there's been very little to celebrate for me this round Russty

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 20:23

    Rocky the pig is back!! Just a little knock last week. 140 SC points today……..That is how Rocky responds!

      FearTheBeard · 13/04/2019 at 20:24

      So very grateful I bloody hit reverse on trading him out LOL.

        TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 21:01

        Good decision mate.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 21:18

      Its a shame he'll cop the Hutchings tag next week though, might try and loophole him if Gibbons gets dropped (fingers crossed)

TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 20:52

Dom Sheed is back when Gaff is back. Does nothing…….Hope I am wrong…..

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 20:56

    Looks like Gaff might be Sheed's Kryptonite, still early days though.
    I'm watching the other game, more interesting.
    Were you planning on trading Sheed in mate?

Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 21:33

Will look to get rocky in after the eagles game I reckon, he is back boyyys, will probably look at swapping Steele to him and using that cash to upgrade Dunkley to Boak
450k so cheap for his potential

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:00

    Im thinking Cogs down to Rocky, bank some coin and hes killing it, Cogs is playing ordinary,

      Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 22:09

      Surely don’t trade cogs!
      That said I feel like rocky is just an absolute lock wouldn’t care who i traded to get him in, treloar is on thin ice aswell after back to back 85s

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:33

        i dont want to mate but hes only just hitting the ton and a 52? Rocky is back and cheaper,

          Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:34

          Anything goes this year!

          nankthetank · 14/04/2019 at 00:34

          Also got a 150 tho…

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:00

    To get Rocky, you really want to be going UP to him. Turning a midpricer into Rocky.

    Paint the fence in two weeks

    You can wait a week, he should get Hutchings tag next week plus still have last weeks poor score in his average.

    Don’t trade a premium to Rocky

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 21:45

Shocking game by Sloane, only 16 disposals, Barely seen him even attempt a hard ball get

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 21:55

    Was playing in forward line?

      Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 22:09

      Shocking night for all the Adelaide boys

      ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 22:11

      Got 88 lol the Mcrouch 90 can't work that one out at all. But I have them both so….

        AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 22:15

        Dont think Sloane deserved more than 65, but I'l certainly take 88

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 22:16

      Yeah seemed like he was resting up there a bit, i hope that trend doesn't continue

Derek · 13/04/2019 at 22:04

Hold your premiums I said. So I traded Mundy after 2 weeks. 109 last week, 103 at 3/4 time this week. Sigh.

Massive POD

I know Fyfe out makes a difference, but just another example of holding premiums.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 22:06

    Hindsight always has the right moves

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 22:10

    Know how ya feel mate! Mundys score would’ve been handy with the carnage this weekend

    One Touch Wonder · 13/04/2019 at 22:16

    Held Mundy. Another SHARK MOVE.

    TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 22:26

    If only we could look into the future dazza. I went back to the future and selected Mumford. Now there is a POD for ya!!

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 22:31

    Hurn going along ok. Who needs Whitfield;)

      Sharkmove_King · 13/04/2019 at 23:02

      I have both.

        Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:15

        There always someone. Well done mate.

          Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 23:23

          Consider yourself smited Derek haha, I traded Degoey to Kelly and he's outscored him so far, think in the long run it'll work out though.
          If you didn't trade Mundy out, he would've scored 50 guaranteed!

Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 22:04

Sheed to Mundy anyone? 😁

    GloryDays94 · 13/04/2019 at 22:36

    I hate Mundy…. bastard went 73 and 35 looked like he was cooked and traded him!

Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 22:07

Thought I was so smart fielding Petruccelle at quarter time when he was on 30 odd two quarters later he has gone backwards and hasn’t done anything

Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 22:08

How much crap footy this weekend…. hard to watch …. Steve Hocking take a walk…

    Tommy · 13/04/2019 at 22:14

    2 decent games today? Alright if you have Foxtel…

      Lazza · 13/04/2019 at 22:32

      I wasn’t referring to the closeness of the games … the quality of the football !! I have Foxtel.

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:42

        i agree Laz, been very scrappy, most just kick in hope,

      JohnDJ59 · 14/04/2019 at 12:49

      I canceled my Foxtel a few weeks ago, after many years, didn't want to have anything to do with Murdoch.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 22:16

    Maybe stop changing the rules so that way the umpiring would be back to standard because of no new interpretations and solid new rules to rehearse in umpire training. Then the players and coaching staff will have knowledge of the game and the rules of the game that's fortified. We should have the best sport in Australia AFL and it used to be, compare the game from the mid 70's to late 2000's to the state of the game now…. yeesh it's trash

      Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:48

      ZZ YOU ARE SPOT ON MATE, THIS IS THE ONLY GAME IN THE WORLD WHERE THEY CHANGE THE RULES EVERY YEAR AND IT TAKES MOST OF THE YEAR TO GET USED TO IT!!!! BUT BY THEN, ITS THE END AND THEN WE"LL MAKE SOME NEW RULES!!! TO TRY AND GET USED TO? ABSOLUTELY WRECKING A GAME I PLAYED FOR 15 YEARS, HAVE LOVED FOR 40+ YEARS AND ARE QUICKLY LOOSING INTEREST IN BECAUSE OF IT!!!!! SUCH A SHAME,,,,,JUSTN SAID TO MY MISSUS, I DOUBT I'LL BE WATCHIMG THIS IN 2 YEARS TIME IF IT KEEPS GOING THIS WAY!!!!

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:51

        its all about money now

TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 22:15

Mummy 111 SC and Goldy 113 SC today. I like value for money.

    One Touch Wonder · 13/04/2019 at 22:28

    They are my two rucks as well

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:30

    Nowhere near grundy and gawn!

      Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 22:55

      Lol goldy scored the same as gawn this round

        Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 23:10

        Yeah THIS round, but the first 3 and then on???

          Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 23:16

          102, 66 114 and 113 compared to 87 116 126 and 113, ?? 395 to 442? and Gawn will score better than Goldy or year!!

            Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 23:22

            And also, Goldy has dropped coin and going to drop more! great value?? Nd Mummy might make about $60k soooooooo??

            Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:25

            Obviously Goldy has been better value. I work on a rough guide of $5k price difference equals 1 pt a week.

            Price difference between Gawn and Goldy was about 25pts a week. Over 4 rounds that is 100pts.

            Obviously the money saved needs to be used to make points with someone else.

            I’m very happy to have Grundy and Gawn, but those who went with Goldy would be feeling ok as well.

              Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 23:31

              I'd feel a lot better if I had Grundy instead of Goldy, Goldy doesn't appear to have the big ceiling anymore.

                Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:53

                I’m a bit worried that Prues did so well.

                Gawn played midfield and defence, didn’t go forward at all and it affected his score. Gawn should be been 130+

                  Russty_ · 14/04/2019 at 00:00

                  Remember Gawn butchered it though Derek…52 % d/e and 4 clangers, he'll improve on that.

Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 22:16

Hoping crippa goes bang after butchering my loophole on Grundy coulda taken it but I would of had to cop butters score as an emergency

ZzZCalintZzZ · 13/04/2019 at 22:28

1669 with Captain Cripps, Worpel, Parker, Wilkie left. Hope to snag 2150

    Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 22:57

    Nice work, Worpel will have a big one I reckon

      Sam_01 · 13/04/2019 at 23:01

      Yeah I’ll be lucky to hit 2100 projected for 2075 which seems about right

      Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 23:03

      1673 with Sicily, Cripps, Setterfield, Scrimshaw, Walsh. Hopefully get around your 2150 score but will be about 2050 i reckon

Steve · 13/04/2019 at 22:44

Gaff in for Oliver or Brayshaw next week

    Russty_ · 14/04/2019 at 00:04

    I wouldn't do that yet, wait till he cleans up his act a bit first, too many clangers and low d/e this week, plenty of the pill though.

Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 22:47

Is it worth trading out Balta, he's only worth the price of a bag of mixed Lollies.

    Hawk131415 · 13/04/2019 at 22:53

    Yep

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/04/2019 at 22:55

    Done

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 08:13

    Yes

    Maverick_ · 14/04/2019 at 11:19

    has to go russty. whose on the bubble up fwd?

      Russty_ · 14/04/2019 at 12:32

      Not sure if there are any cheapies fwd Mav..they should name a new breed of Potato after Balta.

TOPHAWK1 · 13/04/2019 at 23:00

Who needs Lachie Neale when you own the PIG. Tom Rockliff. What a gun!

    JEL · 13/04/2019 at 23:08

    I could be greedy and wish I had both

    _Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:23

    Im certainly happy to have neale mate haha

Hawks · 13/04/2019 at 23:05

Walters 103 with the Hutchings Tag. ROCKY WILL GO HUGGGGEEEE NEXT WEEK.

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:12

    Why do you say that? Rocky is more the type that Hutchings tags. I was surprised they tried to tag Walters.

    Walters did go from about 75 to 103 in the last 5 mins

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/04/2019 at 23:49

gonna be a low par score this week

    Russty_ · 13/04/2019 at 23:56

    Reckon I'll be lucky to crack 2000 this week AB..quite discouraging.

    Derek · 13/04/2019 at 23:59

    I should get around 2150, another very average score, however looking at my leagues, I’m not seeing any crazy big scores and I’m half a chance to win most of my games with such an average score.

    Plenty have Williams, Kelly and Danger, so it is a case of how people’s POD’s did.

    Pretty happy with Merrett.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 14/04/2019 at 00:04

      2150 will be above par this week i reckon Derek

        _Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:27

        I finished on 2164 and lost half of my leagues.

      silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 18:47

      Actually only 32% have Williams and less have kelly. Nice get on Merrett

    JohnDJ59 · 14/04/2019 at 00:18

    I'm looking at 1950 and it would be even worse if I hadn't traded in Whitfield and Boak, my top two scorers so far.

Will · 14/04/2019 at 10:06

Do we believe that rocky will be a top 8 mid?

    Maverick_ · 14/04/2019 at 11:18

    he may very well go close he looks to be back! i don't know how i'll get him now though unfortunately

    Russty_ · 14/04/2019 at 12:32

    Could be, unless he starts getting tagged.

    SC_Donkey · 14/04/2019 at 12:40

    definitely high rewards, high ceiling, If he keeps it up and stays in the park should be there at season end. Same story with Libba they're both a beast, they've just burnt me too many times with their injuries.

    _Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:17

    On average theres every chance he will be but injury risk is enormous

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 18:20

    I traded him the week he got concussed which wasn’t ideal. If you include JLT he has had more than 30 touches in his last six games. That is enough to suggest to me that he is back to his best. susceptible to injury and the tag but a risk I’m willing to take.

Pman · 14/04/2019 at 14:14

Hi Community who should start on the ground out of the following Rookies for Sunday's games;

Scrimshaw or Collins in Defence?

Setterfield or Burgess in Attack?

Probably leaning towards Scrimshaw/Setterfield but having a hard time deciding, any thoughts appreciated…

R.P · 14/04/2019 at 16:25

Butters,Setterfield,Gibbons,Burgess,Balta,Petruccelle crap scores are going to make them hard to trade out and who do you replace them with.a tough long season ahead

    R.P · 14/04/2019 at 18:15

    add m.parker to the above

gator59 · 14/04/2019 at 17:21

Captain Crippa you beauty

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 18:11

    Nice gator. Went with Grundy but crippa was my plan b.

    _Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:15

    Was hoping he would only go around 100. All oponents had him and 5 had the C on him haha. Was looking okay at 1/4 time till cripp went BANG

TelescopicCox · 14/04/2019 at 17:51

2054. Off to my worst start in years. Went for GnR and it’s failed horribly.

Crisp and Treloar on the chopping block for a shake up to get some performing premos

    Sam_01 · 14/04/2019 at 18:27

    Agree mate treloar and Steele looking ripe for a quick flick to rocky! They aren’t doing bad but how can you pass up on rocky for his price
    Dunkley also getting the flick

_Kyle · 14/04/2019 at 18:13

Shout out to billings’ on a 64 point 4th quarter. Go you good thing.

Now let the drinking for my poor hawks begin.

silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 18:17

What is par this week lads? I finished with 2,154 after Crippa killed it once again. Was thinking I would end up around 2,050. There will be a lot of crap teams that do well this week. Hoping to hold my ranking at around 3,700 this week.

    Sam_01 · 14/04/2019 at 18:21

    2208 for me, I’m sitting at 2628 might be hard to hold

      gator59 · 14/04/2019 at 18:30

      I reckon around 2250 will be around par this week

        silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 19:21

        Depends whether you mean par amongst real sc players or par for all players gator 🤔

      silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 18:38

      That’s decent Sam. I’d be happy with that.

        Sam_01 · 14/04/2019 at 19:00

        can’t complain, got a few people in the firing line though haha

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 19:44

    Dropped to rank 6,000. Ouch!

Fearthebeard · 14/04/2019 at 20:02

Sheed up to neale?

Burgess up to whitefield ?

Parker up to heeney?

Which ones best to go!?

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 22:19

    Of the 3, I’d get rid of burgess. But you will be paying close to top dollar for whitfield

Ando · 14/04/2019 at 20:36

Butters to Stack or wait a week and see if Jack Ross can back up his 87 from this round?

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 22:17

    I’m waiting for Ross, 25 touches, not a bad debut.

      Ando · 15/04/2019 at 10:31

      Am leaning that way. Going at 88% DE and 10 contested possessions bodes well.

GloryDays94 · 14/04/2019 at 22:31

Butters to Stack for 140k to add to the bank?

    silversovereign · 14/04/2019 at 22:40

    Butters has a season high of 88 and a b/e of 42. He has money to make. I’d wait a week and grab ross who has a higher potential ceiling imo
