Red Dead (Rookie) Redemption

Published by Patch on

THEY’RE BACK! Just when you thought they were gone, down and out, our rookies are BACK, BABY! Well, some of them were never here, in the case of Michael Gibbons, and some of them never left, in the case of Sam Walsh, but for all intents and purpses – as Jesus did on Easter all those years ago, the rookies have risen.

They’ve risen in price, they’ve risen in scoring capacity and most importantly, they’ve risen in price. Because that’s all we want from them. Cash. Because we’re remorseless and heartless people buying and selling people on an imaginary stock market.

So come, let the barefoot and pantless investors of the Supercoach world talk you through this week on the imaginary human person stock market – who to buy, who to trade, and who to keep an eye on for the future.

We also abuse each other. Because of course we do. Who are you buying and trading this week, community?

Honestly have no idea….. probably no one tbh

    Patch · 22/04/2019 at 22:22

    I like this answer! Yes!

COREYSC · 22/04/2019 at 22:28

I don’t think I need to make any trades this week unless Scott or Parker is dropped I’ll be targeting Hatley next week as my first trade of the season

    manolaki · 23/04/2019 at 11:49

    Baker? Ross?

Holty01 · 22/04/2019 at 22:54

It’s all about quick cash generation imo so Parker out for Baker.
Next week Hately for Scott if all goes well.

    Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2019 at 07:56

    That’s not quick cash gen.

    I’m thinking of the same BUT it only nets 50k
    We could be netting around 100k and miss out on 50k potential cash gen which is ultimately better

      DavidC · 23/04/2019 at 11:22

      Yeh, I don't like to trade them out until they get close to 300K. Unless they are non playing and little chance of a game.

        manolaki · 23/04/2019 at 11:50

        Are Burgess or Parker going to reach 300k?

      Holty01 · 23/04/2019 at 13:30

      Really depends on what you consider quick cash generation. 50-60k a week isn’t what Walsh is achieving but the chance to make 200k in 4-5 weeks id be very happy with.

      Scouser · 23/04/2019 at 15:23

      Its 50k minimum as you also get whatever Baker makes minus whatever Parker would have made which should add another $50k minimum looking at projections and BEs. Plus you still have the rest of Bakers appreciation to come so on that basis alone it's a no-brainer for mine. Finding the next fwd rookie after Baker who's got similar potential is also going to be a challenge I reckon given the rubbish so far, Drew asid, so a very sound 'investment trade' Baker also likely to peak around byes assuming he gets the game time so future trade timing good also.

Ken · 22/04/2019 at 23:05

Walsh is an absolute gun!
I decided to skip on him because of Brayshaw last year and it's killed my cash gen.

I decided to start Sheed and Rockliff over Walsh and libba ….arghhhh

    Steeeve · 23/04/2019 at 19:28

    I had the same philosophy but caved at the last minute. Glad I did!!

COREYSC · 22/04/2019 at 23:18

Could Cale Hooker for Patch be the equivalent of Lekdog’s Daniel Rich?

    Lekdog · 23/04/2019 at 12:14

    pls no

Ken · 22/04/2019 at 23:43

Slip of the tongue

Iamme · 23/04/2019 at 01:50

I'm thinking downgrading J.Clarke to bubble boy Rotham this week and pocket 140K

    James · 23/04/2019 at 06:31

    Rotham was dropped last week and even if he gets back in his JS is meh. Clarke still has more to make.

      Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2019 at 07:49

      Not by much, though. It will be a slow burn

        James · 23/04/2019 at 10:22

        True but you are wasting a trade for a player with no JS who might not make much more than Clarke. Better to hold until a more reliable rookie comes up imo as there is no harm in holding since in the meantime you make cash and don't waste a trade.

          joe · 23/04/2019 at 13:17

          Keep an eye on selection; it is highly likely that Clark will be the one to make when Tuohy returns

Tyruddanaut · 23/04/2019 at 07:50

I’m wondering who I should downgrade Clark for?

Lockhart and bank the cash
Rotham and hope he plays
Some brand new rookie who only popped up this week

    I'm_Eugene · 23/04/2019 at 20:23

    Wondering if I should upgrade Darling to Balta. If I'd done it last week I would have been 39 points ahead already.
    Maybe I can swap Darling for a soggy bog-roll that's been retrieved from the fetid gut of a decomposing croc, that would be a win

Rick Grimes · 23/04/2019 at 08:20

Can't see too many moves this week. Concerned about JS for the Richmond bubble boys. Anythiing else looks sideways. May just hold and hope I get the right combination of my squad on the field at once.

    Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 18:52

    I wanna hold , but I have too many rookies only earning $10k or less this week … and a couple who are near their max … will also need 2 trades next week … so going in for Ross

Nathan Runge · 23/04/2019 at 09:34

This week Burgess out for Baker
Next week butters or scott (depending on be) out for hatley
And clark up to siclily or hurn

Mickaboy · 23/04/2019 at 09:51

452,000 for a backliner, due to Milera, any potential top six backliners avalilable

    Dermin8r · 23/04/2019 at 13:56

      The Little Master

    COREYSC · 26/04/2019 at 08:59

    What a jet, great to have him back at the Cattary in a role that could see him play another 1-2 years

HarryH76 · 23/04/2019 at 10:20

Yep have to be happy with the rookies this week. Hore, Petruccelle, Gibbons, Drew, ROB and Walsh all great for my side. Although I had one shocking rookie on field in Jack Darling. I mean, 9 points from 86% TOG must have come from a first year rookie right???? I can't believe I paid so much money for a first year rookie…..

RoyWetard · 23/04/2019 at 10:26

Who of these guys would you trade in for Milera – Laird, Stewart, Salem, Simpson, Sheppard or DANIEL RICH? I want to trade Parker to Kelly next week but Laird or Stewart would make that difficult, it would require Hutchings tagging Kelly like he did in JLT along with Parker and in the case of Wagner playing and outscoring their projections or Hayes or Lewis over Hately next week.

    DavidC · 23/04/2019 at 11:19

    Laird might improve with Milera out. Stewart was looking good until this week. The others are pretty risky. Maybe Salem if it allows you to get Kelly next week.

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 11:25

    Laird is a gun. nice price. BE 104 so won't get him much cheaper.

    Lekdog · 23/04/2019 at 12:15

    Personally I would trade in Laird

KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 11:00

Hey community need a bit of help as for what to do with my team, I currently have $103k and 28 trade. Any suggestions this week? Here's my team..

DEF: Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Collins, Duursma, Hore (Burgess, Clarke)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Cogs, Sloane, M. Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Butters (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)

RUC: Gawn, Goldy (O'Brien)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Moore, Drew, Petruccelle (Balta, Bines)

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 11:15

    your team looks good.

    next step is to think about who your upgrade targets are. Make sure you look at the byes.

    is there a fallen premium who looks juicy this week, like a Laird or Simpson or is there one who still needs to drop a bit more like a Fyfe or Gray?

    If there is someone you want this week, you get the calculator out and do some math and paint the fence.

    Collins and Clark out will give you $644k to get a Laird $522k and a rookie for $122k

    if there isn't anyone you like the look of you can probably hold this week

    all depends on who your next upgrade target is and when the best time to get them, depending on what their BE etc

    TelescopicCox · 23/04/2019 at 11:27

    You could look at Collins, Clark or Burgess to Lockhart if named, and maybe Scott to Ross, but none of those moves are pressing

      Derek · 23/04/2019 at 11:22


        Derek · 23/04/2019 at 13:13

        i wrote a reply and it needs to be approved. very annoying when that happens.

        what upgrade player do you want?

          Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:14

          Make an intensedebate account so I can stop this happening

HallyMate · 23/04/2019 at 11:27

Thinking Z.Jones as a backline pod this week, playing full time midfield role goes hard at the pill, anyone got any reasons I shouldn’t?

    Iknownothing · 23/04/2019 at 20:46

    I don't mind Zac but he's likely to do something silly ala a Toby Green or J.Sicily trying to be as tough as his brother.. Which he ain't. Currently ranked 400 odd but take with a grain of salt if you think he's a keeper.

    I'm_Eugene · 23/04/2019 at 20:50

    Will he be a top 6 defender? If you think so then bring him in but if you don't think so bring in somebody that you think will be a top 6 def.

    Booma · 23/04/2019 at 21:27

    I don’t think they need to be top 6 defender at the end of the year.. You need to get in someone who is going to be a top 6 defender from this point onwards.. Kade Simpson may not end up a top 6 defender at the end of the year, but he will likely be a top scoring defender from now till seasons end. Good price now too.

Derek · 23/04/2019 at 11:28

Answer to KSinny

i wrote a reply and it needs to be approved. very annoying when that happens.

your team looks good.

The next thing to do is to decide who your next upgrade will be. take the byes into consideration.

it could be a juicy fallen premium like Laird or Simpson who you could get this week because of their low BE or it might be a Fyfe or Gray who still have a week or two before they bottom out.

It all depends on who your upgrade is.

Once you have that sorted, you get the calculator out and do some math.

Collins and Butters/Clark OUT can get you a Laird and a Rookie.

If your target is ready to get this week, you paint the fence, otherwise you might just hold this week and let them fatten a bit more.

TelescopicCox · 23/04/2019 at 11:28

What do I do with Jack Darling?

A – Hold since he's lost so much value already, and hope he comes good. I did the same with Billings last year which burned, but I still finished top 1k
B – Trade down to a rookie (Baker or Ross via DPP)
C – Trade up to Kelly – I have just enough in the bank to make this

    HarryH76 · 23/04/2019 at 12:26

    I'm struggling between B and C. Yep I was the same with Billings last year. Job security with Baker is my only question as I'm leaning towards getting him in then Kelly next week who has a 117 BE this week with a rolling 39 in his 3 round avg.

    I did an interesting exercise in listing my preferred gun mids. I had Danger, Boak, Heeney, Dunkley (all current), then either Kelly, De Goey, D Smith (if his form picks up). Even had Greene as an option for back half of year. As you can see, plenty in front of Darling. I can't hold him

    KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 12:34

    Trade up for sure

      TelescopicCox · 23/04/2019 at 13:21

      I'm leaning to C. I'm thinking of going to Laird since he's lost a ton of value too. Only problem is my FWD line will be very weak after the trade:

      FWD: Danger Heeney Moore Drew Petruccelle Balta (Bines, Setterfield)

Nice_Person · 23/04/2019 at 11:33

Crisp & 80k for the bank

    HarryH76 · 23/04/2019 at 13:25

    Sicily. Don't like him but he's a gun and very consistent. I had both last year and Crisp puts in shockers much more often

    No idea · 24/04/2019 at 00:10

    Sicily- smooth and high efficiency rate

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 00:22

    May as well get the flog in…he's doing pretty good so far.

      Gen · 24/04/2019 at 11:51

      Big flog! Hopefully gets a real hiding one day

      Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 15:35

      Mate, you don't need to take everything literally and or personally, which you seem to a lot.
      My comment was tongue in cheek, I know he's a good player, he's earned his title as a flog from his own actions.
      And I think we're doing fine without him in the Saints thanks.

        Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 15:53

        Whatever dude, I didn't have a go at anyone, you just perceived it that way, you obviously have no sense of humour and are overly sensitive with your precious Hawks, it wasn't about anyone's team, it was a lighthearted comment about Sicily the flog as he's known widely…get over it, I'm done with you.

        Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:01

        No offence hawk, but you jump on anyone who ever has a joke about Sicily or any hawk. Everybody calls Sicily a flog but that doesn’t mean he’s isn’t a star! He’s well on his way to AA this season. Clearly saints are doing fine without him, they beat you guys a week ago! Just need to chill out sometimes mate!

          Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:30

          Can’t blame you for defending your team, just the fact you turn a little joke into an argument is probably questionable. I think you should have a look at the outs that they had before making note of how undermanned the hawks were. No disrespect but hawks have beaten north and Adelaide… 2 teams that are struggling

            Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:43

            Mate it’s not as if russty made up the “flog” name for Sicily. If you were here a few years ago you would know that he has been called a flog in the podcasts! Rus hasn’t insulted you personally so there was no reason for you to!

              Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:54

              Mate once again getting offensive for no reason. Only reason I said anything is because I got banned for having the same argument with you. It’s irrelevant anyway, good luck with your supercoach

                Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 17:10

                It’s all good mate, I just assume the mod banned me for arguing with someone who actually has an account. Not a worry anyway, you’re a hawk I’m a cat, always going to differ in opinions!

                  Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:08

                  Sicily is a flog, Hawk stop fighting people, Tommy make an intensedebate account.

                    Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:15

                    Don't care, this isn't a free country, stop pissing people off.

                    Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:49

                    And there it is. Cya mate

              Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:57

              Apologies thought you were meaning myself. Regardless it’s done anyway mate, all good! Good luck this week

    Nice_Person · 24/04/2019 at 16:48

    So Sicily?

      Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:51

      Yeah I’d go sic haha

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 16:54

      yup sicily

      Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 00:37

      Sicily's a good player, even though he's a flog, he's a floggin good player……
      I had him all last year too, even though he was still a flog…stepping on people's legs and shit.

        Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 08:33

        He has seemed to of toned down the flogginess this year

manolaki · 23/04/2019 at 11:54

Is it bad if we miss out on players like Ross and hold our trades for now?
How many premos should we look at having and trades left at this stage?

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 13:18

    you have to wait and pick up the fallen premiums, they might take another week or so to be juicy ripe, but you need a little war chest to get them.

    If you want Rocky or Walters, this week is the week, otherwise let the cash cows fatten a bit more. You can't have all the cows, but if you think there is one that needs to go and there is also one you want, cut his head off and build the war chest.

Derek · 23/04/2019 at 11:55


the following teams went into this week with the immunity necklace:

Div 1 – Bennell 4 Brownlow
Div 2 – Dragonwolves Howl
Div 3 – Alaskan Firedragon
Div 4 – Doc Splodge
Div 5 – The Union

As per the rules of the competition, the two lowest weekly scores from each division are eliminated each week, unless you have immunity.

This weeks Eliminated teams are:

Div 1 – Fluffy Slippers & Browncows

Div 2 – Bellybuttonfluff & Half Witts

Div 3 – uDonkey & Athletico Dothraki

Div 4 – Red Bull FC & SuperBlues

Div 5 – Shiel Good Inc. & Mocha's Shockers

No one needed to use their Immunity necklace this week

I have removed the above teams from the game.

There were some good teams eliminated this week and the cutt off is getting higher every week, one poor score from here on could be the end of the game.

This weeks top scorers all have immunity this week, (i'm not playing, but i would have scored immunity in EVERY division this week)

Div 1 – EAGLE POWER (2303)
Div 2 – Ya hate to see it (2298)
Div 3 – itsCRASH (2286)
Div 4 – Potters FC (2281)
Div 5 – Stretch Marks (2308)

Good luck everyone

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/04/2019 at 20:08

    Cheers for running this Derek. At what point will the divisions combine into one "super league"?

      Derek · 24/04/2019 at 08:47

      After the byes

      Round 15 the champions league starts

JohnDJ59 · 23/04/2019 at 12:07

Thinking of going Setterfield to Ross and Lycett to Hately. Just going to leave Clark and Parker on the bench for now and Scott will probably be going next week for Hayes.

Swoosh · 23/04/2019 at 12:07

This week I am going Sheed (had him from the start) to Henderson (hope he can keep it up) and Moore to Hore (Hore scores better and I bank $150). Could go Walters (don't trust him though) or Bont, but Henderson is a huge POD.

I am hanging onto Burgess. Hasn't made enough to trade and I don't think he will get picked this week anyway.

    KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 12:36

    I like the Henderson pick as he is a massive POD and seems to be really benefiting with no Titch in the side, lets just hope he can keep up the good form and he should be a great pick for your team!

    TelescopicCox · 23/04/2019 at 13:17

    Is he MID only? I remember having him years ago as a defender at the Crows. I really rate him as a POD pick

    Gen · 24/04/2019 at 11:53

    If you can get the bont, get him

    Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:19

    Henderson is cheap and killing it, I personally don’t think he keeps it up. If you can get bont I’d definitely be jumping on him!

GiveMeTheFyfe · 23/04/2019 at 12:09

Parker to Baker
Scott to Ross
Looking to go from Collins to Crisp next week and need cash gen

    Holty01 · 23/04/2019 at 19:19

    I like Baker as I think they will average similar but feel its more valuable using the scores in the forward line

Lekdog · 23/04/2019 at 12:15

Names are as hard as maths

Tommo09 · 23/04/2019 at 12:21

Is any rookie a must have this week?

    Pranav · 23/04/2019 at 12:25

    with the news of cotchin missing a few more weeks potentially one of the richmond rookies. id say make sure you have a rookie to trade out for hately next week

TommyC99 · 23/04/2019 at 12:47

I traded dusty out 2 weeks ago for Libba. Is it worth bringing dusty back in via an upgrade? Or do I have to cop it as punishment from the SC gods?

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 13:25

    no rules about not getting him back. make your decision as if you didn't have him previously. if he looks the best option.

UpBeat · 23/04/2019 at 12:56

Something interesting community. Ryder2Gray is LEADING the comp, I just noticed he/she doesn't have big Max Gawn. I was contemplating this set up a few weeks ago and I'm now wondering what if !! Ryder2Gray has Reilly O'Brien as R2 but has recently moved Bines to Fwd along side Lycett. You gota riskit for the biskit !!!

    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 09:17

    Leading the comp now doesn’t get you anything. He’ll still have to trade Max in at some point and he doesn’t look like being less than $600k any time soon.

Stacky23 · 23/04/2019 at 13:05

Is it worth trading Elliot Yeo, not really any mid options around his price jumping out and theres still the chance he bounces back, 27 trades 30k and team looks relatively good atm with a 2300 this week (however did trade gibbons to stack instead of scott to get Obrien πŸ™
Hurn Crisp Williams Scrimshaw Duursma Hore (Clark, Burgess)
Cripps Macrae Crouch Coniglio Yeo Liberatore Walsh Constable (Stack, Scott, Atkins)
Grundy Gawn (Obrien)
Danger Kelly Heeney Drew Petrucelle Parker (Balta Setterfield)

dontblushbaby · 23/04/2019 at 13:39

T.Cotchin has had a setback,they looking at Round 8 at the earliest ,should be good news for Jack Ross

    Russty_ · 23/04/2019 at 14:44

    Heard on the Radio today too, Riewoldt is a likely in this week, so someone's missing out in the fwd line.

      Derek · 23/04/2019 at 14:55

      I expect that would be Balta

        DavidC · 23/04/2019 at 16:46

        They need Balta for the 2nd ruck, they don't want Lynch or Riewoldt rucking. Whoever misses out will be unlucky.

      Russty_ · 23/04/2019 at 17:08

      Oh really?, didn't see it anywhere, just something about Cotch having a sweaty back πŸ˜‰

Daniel · 23/04/2019 at 14:16

Got enough cash for burgess to worpedo, do I pull the pin and get him is he the real deal?

I’m still not convinced on many fwd premos

    No idea · 24/04/2019 at 00:11

    will Worpel be a top 10 forward at season end? Probably close at least, so I'd do it

Yeahnah · 23/04/2019 at 14:39

Lions website says Andrews is out for 1-2 weeks, worth trading him? Can afford any defender. Have Clark on the bench for cover

    No idea · 24/04/2019 at 00:12

    Wouldn't surprise if Clark is dropped this week- he looked tired last Sunday

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 00:20

    I'd keep Andrews, Clark could go out for Lockhart, if Clark gets dropped for Tuohy, at least he's playing.

Pranav · 23/04/2019 at 14:53

what time do the tigers team come out?

    hedski · 23/04/2019 at 17:54

    6.20 I reckon bud

    Yeahnah · 23/04/2019 at 17:59

    They're out now

Tommo76 · 23/04/2019 at 15:26

Hey guys, would love some thoughts on my team right now. Had a decent week last week, scoring 2177.

28 trades left, 225k in the bank.

Hurn, Crisp, Williams, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Clark (Burgess, Hore)
Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable, Butters (Scott, Atkins, Gibbons)
Grundy, Gawn (O'Brien)
Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew, Parker, (Petrucelle, Bines)

No trades really stick out to me at this stage, but i feel like i shouldnt keep 225k in the bank for a long period of time.
Could Grab Tkelly but round 13 bye is an issue (7 premos out) so could probably only afford 1 more max, which i feel i should reserve for Lloyd/Whitfield.

Thoughts would be great please guys!

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 17:01

    Clark might have to go this week. Tuhoy will be back and it is time the lad got a rest. has a 43BE and yet to have a big score.

    Although, if Hore goes well on Wednesday night, you might want to keep Clark as a donut, but won't know if he is named or not until Thursday.

    there are a few premiums i'm keen on this week, all are Round 13 bye friendly. Defence: Laird $522k, Sicily $543k and Simpson $479k. All of them are close to their low price. You would need to paint the fence to get from Clark to one of them.

    Midfield: Rocky is still only $450k. last week to get him cheap though. You can do one trade Butters to Rocky

    Forwards: Boak $579k or Walters $513k. Trade out Parker and Clark/Butters will get you either.

      CalebCripps922 · 23/04/2019 at 17:38

      i was gonna downgrade clark this week but no one to bring in. lockhart and rotham if named are on bubble but are risky

      Tommo76 · 23/04/2019 at 17:55

      Thanks for responding Derek!
      I have a few options. Hoping Jay Lockhart is named as he provides quite a few options DPP wise (would love def-mid swing)
      I really like the look of Simmo or Laird, but i feel like fixing up my fwd line should be more of a priority, as bringing in a defense premo would mean id be benching Duursma or Hore as opposed to Parker of Petrucelle. Should i be worrying about that?

      My main options that i can see (let me know if im missing anything) are:
      1. Scott and Clark out for Simmo and Ross (fall 1k short of Laird)
      2. Butters and Parker out Walters and Ross (again fall 1k short of Boak)
      3. Butters and Clark out for Laird/Sicily and Ross

      Feedback pls fellas!

        Sam_01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:08

        Like option 3 tommo! Big on Sicily and laird is a great value pick right now!
        I’ll be looking at flicking Clarke to baker via Moore
        And bringing in rocky for B Scott only concern is it pushes Walsh to m8 feel like I’m wasting good rookie points on the bench

        Derek · 23/04/2019 at 21:26

        Cash generation is still very important

        Unless you really want Rocky or Walters, who have very low BE’s, I would hold off another week and look to secure some more cash generators first

          Tommo76 · 23/04/2019 at 23:52

          So you reckon none of the rookies are worth bringing in this week Derek? I was looking at Ross and Lockhart but JS looks ffy on both. Obviously would love to be bringing in a premo this week as ive ha a fairly average start to the year but the last thing we want are rookies who wont get a game in a few weeks time, and they havent made enough cash to warrant trading back out so youre stuck with them

        Finnius · 24/04/2019 at 08:29

        I agree and think you need to target forward upgrades to maximise points early on.

        NoLanguage96 · 24/04/2019 at 09:44

        I like option 3 with Sicily. Bloke is a jet

Pistolas de España · 23/04/2019 at 15:48

Duursma proving quite valuable as a DPP work around last few weeks. Collins and Cousins on the block. Taking the risk with Ross and maybe upgrade to Macrae or the Bont. Hately and Fyfe/Neale next week. Hurn giving me nightmares too.

BlueBaggerJosh · 23/04/2019 at 16:25

Harris Andrews could be a nice cheap upgrade if he’s only out for a week or 2

Brett · 23/04/2019 at 17:19

28 trades left.

Think Parker is ready to go sadly. He just isnt making the $
Trading to baker to hopefully improve on field rookie scoring, and make a bit of cash too. Should give me enough to go one up one down next week and upgrade to a 500kish fwd.

Sound alright?

    Brett · 23/04/2019 at 17:20

    Ranked around 1500

      Derek · 23/04/2019 at 17:32

      who are your upgrade targets?

      Sam_01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:16

      Yeh flick him, I can loophole him this week so he stays in my team for one more week
      Trading Clark to baker instead via dpp

Levi · 23/04/2019 at 17:42

Parker to Baker this week surely?
If not is there anyone else on the horizon, or are we just stuck with Parker for the time?

TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 18:15

Now that Cotchin is still 3 weeks away, it might be time to cull Clark for Ross via DPP (Duursma) and raise some more cash. Yay or Nea?

    Sam_01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:19

    I like it mate! Got me thinking if I could pull that trade haha but I don’t think my team is structured right

    Yeahnah · 23/04/2019 at 18:29

    I'd love to get him in, just none of my mid rookies are fat enough yet and don't have a DPP swing πŸ™

Yeahnah · 23/04/2019 at 18:17

Thinking of going Clark and Burgess to Lockhart and Laird. Using Andrews as a loophole in defence until he returns

    Maverick_ · 23/04/2019 at 18:23

    I really don't like lockharts JS but there really isn't much in the way of DEF rookies on the horizon so gotta do what ya gotta do.

      Yeahnah · 23/04/2019 at 18:29

      I think his JS is decent enough, I think they rate him pretty well down there. I'm more worried about his scoring potential as a small forward in a struggling team

        Derek · 23/04/2019 at 19:46

        $102k with DPP. Nice

      KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 20:02

      Think his JS might be alright with Jetta out for 8 weeks

Dash · 23/04/2019 at 18:18

Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Burgess, Clark,
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable, Scott, Atkins, Gibbons
Gawn, Grundy, Bines
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, Setterfield, Balta

Just after any thoughts on trade options.
What trade(s) would you make this week. Cheers

    Sam_01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:28

    Probably would look at bringing in one of the Richmond boys
    Must be in the top 500 odd with the side you got there mate!

      Dash · 23/04/2019 at 18:38

      I'm not sure who to trade out and in?
      Unfortunately only about 13000 rank

        Maverick_ · 23/04/2019 at 18:45

        Burgess has to go Dash he has no forward swing so serving no purpose now his not making $$.
        it gets tricky with little option for defenders and no DPP though but Lockhart has been named his JS may now be better with salem out though? hopefully someone with more of an idea can help with that

          JohnDJ59 · 23/04/2019 at 19:00

          Salem is named on the HB line.

            Maverick_ · 23/04/2019 at 19:11

            sorry John i mean neville Jetta

              JohnDJ59 · 23/04/2019 at 19:30

              Jetta will be out for at least eight weeks, so you would think Lockhart could be in the team for a while if he plays well. Not sure if he's worth getting in though, we could make more money on the mid rookies coming through.

        Sam_01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:47

        Probably only Scott to Ross or Parker to baker
        Could even do both

          Dash · 23/04/2019 at 20:15

          They sound like fair trades. Not sure about Burgess to Lockhart, but could work

TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 18:27

Jay Lockhart is back for the Dees!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/04/2019 at 18:31

    Welcome dusty!

    Butters – Dusty just gotta pull the TRIGGA!

      Maverick_ · 23/04/2019 at 18:39

      I'm looking at one more week trigg but i like it. sub 500k, delicious! BE of 111 so no urgency if he tons up v the dees it could potentially be moore/rozee to dusty for me. not rushing it though

      Holty01 · 23/04/2019 at 18:42

      nice Trigga. Hope it works well for you. I just can’t see him being relevant. Hope I’m wrong for you though.

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 18:48

      Dusty can wait one more week. I have some other fish to fry. But if you can go Dusty this week then just go BANG!!

        Maverick_ · 23/04/2019 at 19:17

        Has lockharts JS risen with jetta out for a couple months TH?

          Derek · 23/04/2019 at 19:43

          I would be more concerned about his back. That is why he has missed games

            dontblushbaby · 23/04/2019 at 19:57

            At 102k & DPP makes him tempting to take the risk imo

              Rocksta_ · 23/04/2019 at 20:03


          TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 21:39

          Not touching Lockhart. He has been named which is exciting for coaches who own him. I don't own him. I do own a Hore though. LOL Cheers Mav!

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 21:37

      Brad Crouch straight switch to Dusty? Cost 20K 1 trade. Tasty!

        FranklinSHow · 24/04/2019 at 17:13

        you could spend $20k and move to T Kelly is you don't have him already. Then switch him to your fwd line at some stage at least then you can comfortably bring a player in who you know will end up at top 6-10 player across their line.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/04/2019 at 20:51

    Other option is rozee – heeney

    Who scores more?

    Dusty and Rozee
    Heeney and butters?

    Maybe heeney this week and butters -hatley next week?

      Ja191 · 23/04/2019 at 21:24

      Heeney and butters for mine

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/04/2019 at 21:44

      Heeney and Butters.

      Shake_n_bake · 24/04/2019 at 09:05

      Holding Rozee for 1 more week Clark gone this week then Rozee will become Fyfe via dpp. Hope Fyfe drops another 15k welcome back.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/04/2019 at 12:51

        Word is rozee may be rested this week shake as he pulled up sore last game.

          Shake_n_bake · 24/04/2019 at 16:17

          Thats ok Trigg has a BE in the 70s so will go to the bench want to bring in Fyfe next week think he’ll fall another 10k to 15k this week. Rozee at least will keep his price.

Pana · 23/04/2019 at 18:35

This was brought up a month or so ago, but I just want to remind Patch to consider investing in a good microphone! And to perhaps deaden the sound in his recording area (are you in the bathroom?)… and for bonus points: some headphones where I can't hear Lek on a time delay?

Sorry to pile it on! You guys are really starting to hit your podcasting groove πŸ™‚

    Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:10

    I actually have no idea where that delay comes from…doesn't show up on the recording stuff just once we go to edit. Very frustrating.

KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 19:22

Thinking of maybe going Clarke to Lockhart then Collins to either Laird or Sicily but can't choose. Leaning toward Sicily seeing as I go for the Hawks and have no Hawks players, but I'm feeling like Laird will really lift with Milera out. Arghhh it's do hard to decide! Help me guys.

    Derek · 23/04/2019 at 19:40

    That’s what I was trying to post earlier, but it kept saying it need to be approved

    I’m doing similar.

    Originally thought Laird, but Sicily has a lower BE

      KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 20:00

      Yeh honestly can't really separate the two but have gone Sicily for now seeing as he has a lower BE and also plays for my team.

      TommyC99 · 23/04/2019 at 20:18

      Who are you trading out to bring in Lockhart?

        KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 20:23


    Hart_attack · 23/04/2019 at 19:46

    Also having the laird and Sicily mind tussle,
    Any thoughts on Simpson??? Dropped nearly 100k and scoring may have turned

      KSinny · 23/04/2019 at 19:59

      Not sure man, if he has turned his scoring around he is great value but u never know.

        Hart_attack · 23/04/2019 at 20:07

        Ranked top 1000 and looking to stay with the pack, Simpson could be a make or break
        Sicily and laird are safer options tho

          Rocksta_ · 23/04/2019 at 20:37

          Can’t go wrong with Laird or Sicily. Simpson getting a bit long in the tooth. Go the safer option. If in the top 1000 no need for any riskier moves just yet.

    Browncow · 23/04/2019 at 21:59

    Same dilemma KSinny. My gut tells me Sicily and logic tells me Laird. Then again I have Darling so my gut can’t be trusted.

Will · 23/04/2019 at 20:04

Which is the better trade?

Burgess > Lockhart
Parker > Baker?

    Brett · 23/04/2019 at 20:23

    Parker to baker on all accounts but cash gen. If you are looking for an on field option baker is your man imo

      Brett · 23/04/2019 at 20:24

      Burgess not worth the trade. Hope for a good game at some point. Might do a pettruc and kick a few

        Derek · 23/04/2019 at 21:32

        even Zac Dawson had a good game once

          Russty_ · 23/04/2019 at 21:43

          Powell could be in for Burgess this week.

I'm_Eugene · 23/04/2019 at 20:19

LOL! it looks like everybody who traded Gibbons out early has traded him back in

Jacko · 23/04/2019 at 20:28

I cant believe that I am heavily considering this but please see me through and help me with this decision.

I currently have Gawn Goldy (O'Brien)
I believe that a Grundy/Gawn combo is a must have therefore this week I am contemplating trading Goldy to Bines (netting 420ish k). This added to my current war chest will leave me with 660k.
The difference between O'brien and Goldy average is 14 points a game. However next week I will be able to turn Parker into Kelly. And the following week Butters to Fyfe.
After a few rounds I will be hoping that Grundy will be around 600-620 and O'brien just shy of 400k.
The extra cash will then allow me to turn O'brien into Grundy.
I know this seems crazy but if o'brien can keep up his 85avg I believe that the difference in the points between him and Goldy will be greatly covered by the next weeks trades.

Would love the communities thoughts as to whether this is wise or disastrous.

    Rocksta_ · 23/04/2019 at 20:34

    It’s definitely a Shark Move

    I'm_Eugene · 23/04/2019 at 20:36

    Do it, you should never have started Goldy because he wont make cash or score anywhere near as much as Grundy and Gawn. Correct the mistake now while you have the chance. Parker to Kelly will generate an extra 5o points which makes up for the few you lose from dumping hasbeen goldstien

    Rocksta_ · 23/04/2019 at 20:40

    I wouldn’t do it Jacko. You’ll be able to find a better way by trading in cash generating Rookies. You can then cash them in down the track and turn Goldy into Grundy if your mind is set on this trade.

    Huzzah · 23/04/2019 at 21:18

    I was considering something like this, but other moves took priority. I would've given it more thought had Adelaide played before North this round. Not to be though, and Goldy's actually doing pretty well. I am slightly concerned about his scoring potential this round though against Lycett, Ryder and a potential flogging. Tossing up putting O'Brien on field for him. He's got a decent run up until the byes though after this week.

Josh · 23/04/2019 at 21:52

Coming 2nd in one leage and 2nd last in anpther lol. Got 27 trades left and $233k in the bank and got
R. Laird, D. Rich Z. williams B. SmithJ. Scrimshaw X. Duursma,J. Clark,C. Burgess

P. Cripps, L. Neale, C. Oliver, D.Sheed, T. Liberatore, T. Rockliff, S. Walsh, J. Cousins, C. Constable,L. Davies-Uniacke,, B. Scott

B. Grundy,M. Gawn, B. Williams

P. Dangerfield, J. Billings, D. Moore, W. Drew, J. Petruccelle, M.Parker, W. Setterfield, N.balta

I'm thinking of going sheed to L. Baker through setterfield balta to T.kelly. Next week LDU to fyfe once he drops another 20k and maybe someone like a Scott to hately if he scores well again. Any advice would be handy

    redherringfc · 24/04/2019 at 08:12

    I think you’d be better off going early on Hatley than Baker.

      Josh · 24/04/2019 at 10:01

      Bakers going up this week and hately next week. And need another rookie that's going to make more than 30 playing

        Josh · 24/04/2019 at 10:01

        In my FWD

    Finnius · 24/04/2019 at 08:25

    Quite like this. Sheed has to go and its more important for you especially to get another forward premo and some slightly better rookies.

      Josh · 24/04/2019 at 10:02

      Yeh he's made my cash and not going to be in my top 8.. fyfe will fill his spot next week so won't loose out

do choi bao dam · 23/04/2019 at 22:07


Finnius · 23/04/2019 at 22:16

Thoughts on Worpel everyone? I'm looking at bringing him in this week. I think he could be a genuine top 6 forward. Elite for clearances, topping Hawthorn in centre bounce attendances and averaging 27 touches a game – if he can lift his disposal efficiency a little bit (which I think he can) could genuinely be averaging 100+. With not too many forwards putting their hands I think he's still a bargain at this price.

    Tommy · 23/04/2019 at 22:30

    Still cheap, as you said though he butchers it a bit. If you think he can improve that, and not tire out as the season progresses then jump on. Under 400k is a bargain

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 00:01

      agree he is Still a very decent price Finn at 440k with a SC friendly role.
      If his not top 6 definately top 8 and worth the punt in my opinion.
      I like the look of daniel as a nice POD been very consistent and still a nice price of 480k.

        Finnius · 24/04/2019 at 08:26

        I picked him up in draft Mav. I'm only a little concerned that this half-back role is a little unsustainable as he keeps getting left as last man out in defence against blokes two foot taller than him. Prime mover out of that backline at the moment though.

    JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 00:42

    I brought him in round two, haven't been disappointed, he hasn't gone under 85pts, nice and consistent.

    Twilightingale · 24/04/2019 at 01:32

    Would rather Greene at 350k then Worpel at 440k. At this stage will return this week

      Mick · 24/04/2019 at 09:25

      Why? Greene’s one score is lower than Worpel’s worst score. Plus Greene is made of cardboard. I’d rather a player he consistently scores 90-100 and plays each week than a guy who avgs 75 and misses half the season.

        Twilightingale · 24/04/2019 at 10:53

        Both will have a similar average imo, and having an extra 90k would make your next few upgrades easier.
        Still feel Greene can average 85-90 which is value at his price. Most people happy with Brodie Smith who is providing that output at a similar starting price.

    The Ranger · 24/04/2019 at 06:59

    Only concern would be what happens when Burgoyne and Shiel come back into the team Fin?
    Will his role change a bit?

      Finnius · 24/04/2019 at 08:25

      I think that they are more likely to force out players like Howe, Cousins etc. Burgoyne is also getting on a little bit and often plays that sweeping half back role with only a few bursts in the middle. Shiels is also more of an outside player so I think his role should be ok, although could be wrong.

Tommy · 23/04/2019 at 22:21

Already trading Collins to ross (via duursma).
Can’t decide on second trade.
Clark -> Lockhart
Butters ->Rockliff
Parker -> baker

    Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 15:48


      Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 15:50

      Butters to Rocky would work Tommy…probably won't get any cheaper than now.

        Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:07

        I’ve gone back and forth all day with it rus. Do you think he ends up being a top 10 mid?

          Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 16:09

          Not sure mate, he does have the ability to knock out monster scores for you though, whether he gets through the season or gets tagged in future is anyone's guess.

            Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:23

            haha yeah he is definitely not a safe pick, might have a gamble, that’s what this game is all about

Steeeve · 23/04/2019 at 22:37

I don't trust Lockhart's JS or scoring potential. But is Sam Collins almost done making money?

    Brett · 23/04/2019 at 22:39

    With jetta out he could have more js?

nankthetank · 23/04/2019 at 22:54

What do we think of Baker's JS from here on?

    NoLanguage96 · 24/04/2019 at 00:15

    Wondering the same thing…

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 00:18

      me too..
      at that price i think i have to pass though

Big Dawg · 23/04/2019 at 22:58

hey boys could use a bit of help.

Is it even worth culling parker for baker even though we aren't making much $$?

Should I just hold trades? or dump off a cousins/scott/Butters for Ross?

    Ja191 · 23/04/2019 at 23:03

    I really don’t rate baker at all. 21 and 17 disposals in two wins would not be surprised if he goes 50-60 from now on. I think Ross could be worth it or wait a week and pick up hately

      Brett · 23/04/2019 at 23:20

      21 touches in great for a rookie

        Ja191 · 24/04/2019 at 09:11

        More looking at his Dreamtime scores of 64/74 gonna have to be very efficient to keep averaging 80-90

          Brett · 24/04/2019 at 09:17

          70ish scores would be fine

No idea · 23/04/2019 at 23:51

Hi Community
Is it too late to move on Marty Hore and /or Sidney Stack? I thought Hore in particular looked good and might have better JS than the Richmond bubble boys.

    nankthetank · 24/04/2019 at 01:12

    Hore maybe, if you're desperate for defensive rooks but consider it like this, would you have selected him at the start of the year if he was 200k?
    Plenty of other midfield rookies so you've missed the boat with stack

      No idea · 24/04/2019 at 08:28

      Thanks- 2 good points

No idea · 24/04/2019 at 00:10

though only listed as 2-3 weeks away and surely Ross gets dropped then, if not earlier???

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 00:22

    Not surely I reckon, others could go out before him, especially if he makes the most of the next few weeks, he's proven he can get plenty of ball.

MidPricer · 24/04/2019 at 05:58

I have the cash to go Brayshaw to Neale. Not normally and advocate for trading premiums…but I can’t see Brayshaw being a top 10 midfield. Moving on?

Ktfg · 24/04/2019 at 05:59

I'm gonna get baker for burges and straight swap sheed to t kelly in the fwd, or Walters? What do you reckon

    NoLanguage96 · 24/04/2019 at 09:38

    Like it. Kelly is the cheapest he will be

Rivo · 24/04/2019 at 07:31

With the early Tigers game, the popular downgrade to Ross & Baker seem sensible. But it is burning 2 trades for cash gen. Both have questionable JS.

Trading playing rooks with slow cash gen seems a waste to me. Winter is coming and so are the byes.

I was thinking Parker & Scott to Baker & Ross. Have 29 trades, ranked top 9% with low cash. Still unsure. Can anyone change my thinking?

    Sam_01 · 24/04/2019 at 08:43

    Baker averaged 37 last season over 3 games he has an elevated price, with Cotchin to come back in he will get less mid minutes if he keeps his spot at all, Richmond have that many small forwards.. he isn’t Sam Walsh he won’t average over 90 Cotchin back in a week or two could see him be dropped or his average take a large hit

      Rivo · 24/04/2019 at 09:20

      Thanks Sam. Tend to agree. Can’t see Baker staying in that best 22 either.

        CalebCripps922 · 24/04/2019 at 11:15

        Think Hayes And Hately will be better downgrade options next week.

          Rivo · 24/04/2019 at 11:53

          Agreed re next week, though Ross is the one I’m still pondering now.

    Tiger · 24/04/2019 at 10:34

    I’m a tigers supporter and yes they don’t have a lot of security. But tbh I’m feeling bullish about the both of them. Like any rookie they need to continue to play well to hold their spot. Cotchin being out helps and Jack Graham hasn’t being playing well and has been dropped. On a positive note Ross is an inside mid which I think we need and I read that in the last couple of weeks has had 7 clearances (equal highest) at Richmond. Baker played 3 games last year, so I’m expecting him to get a few more opportunities throughout the year. My only concern is he’s playing above himself atm. So it’s a Flip of the coin but I’m more likely to pick both and Hately next week. Hope this helps, cheers.

      Rivo · 24/04/2019 at 11:51

      Cheers Tiger.
      I’m a mad Tiger supporter also, making the decision harder than it needs to be. Ross is the better of the 2 prospects for cash and JS. At least until Cotch returns. So my possible move could be Scott to Ross, pending team selections tonight.

        Tiger · 24/04/2019 at 12:35

        Agreed. Good luck🐯

Jimma · 24/04/2019 at 08:12

I’m not proud of it, but I feel burgess is just gonna sit on his price or even go down, and I’m trading him to baker, I only get 10k but with limited fwd rookies I feel your only gonna make 20-50k regardless of any downgrade. Having balta down there as well, I’m just gonna cop the trade, 27 trades left hope I’m safe

NoLanguage96 · 24/04/2019 at 09:34

Need some help community.

I've used 5 trades already to cash in Parker/Butters and also fix a couple of correctives (Dusty, Greene zzz). I wanna dump Burgess but not sure if its worth the trade to Baker, particularly if Baker's JS isn't great. Other option is trading Clark as he seems ready to cull and swinging Burgess back into defence to re-open the swing wih Moore?

Trade or hold? If so which one?

Team below any other suggestions welcome, good luck for the week legends πŸ™‚

B – Laird, Salem, Williams, Smith, Scrimshaw, Duursma (Ridley, Clark)
M – Cripps, Neale, Macrae, Oliver, Crouch, Libba, LDU, Constable (Atkins, Stack, Scott)
R – Gawn, Goldy (Sweet)
F – Danger, Heeney, Marshall, Moore, Drew, Pettrucelle (Setterfield, Burgess)

    Redd · 24/04/2019 at 10:16

    im about ready to pull the trigger on clark aswell straight downgrade to lockhart on the bubble seems the best option for me.

    Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 18:12

    I'd go Clark out rather than Baker in

sick dog · 24/04/2019 at 09:56

LDU over walsh unlucky mate

Sunny Coast Blazers · 24/04/2019 at 10:34

Hey community heres my team as it stands the Sunny Coast Blazers sitting in top 8% and score top 2% last week in a low scoring round. Def: Hurn Crisp Williams Smith Duursma Hore Scrimshaw Clark Mid Cripps Neale Oliver Treloar Crouch Walsh Stack Scott Gibbons Constable Atkins Ruck: Grundy Nankervis Sweet Fwd: Danger Heeney Billings Dalhaus Drew Petrucelle Parker Setterfield Only trade I can see is Clark [be] 43 which is still achievable but will prbs only make another 20k over the next 2 weeks down to Lockhart. im stuck on what to do with setterfield and parker??? is setterfield long term injured? No great downgradews in the fwd line atm? Could look at upgrading Williams or dalhaus but both avg 90 sooo not sure if its nessacary atm got 200k and 28 trades any advice will be much appreciated!!!!!

    Sam_01 · 24/04/2019 at 14:01

    setters copped a ban for a tackle and will be back, not a necessary trade, id probably hold till next week and target hayes and hately as safer options for rookie trade ins, I’d go Lockhart if you have an upgrade planned and can bench him, I’ve got him in this week to ride the pine and allowed me to get rocky, not sold on him though

      Redd · 24/04/2019 at 19:53

      Cheers sam yes will hold setterfield and im rockin lockhart on the pine also thanks for your reply mate

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 15:18

    Hi mate, Setterfield's suspended for one more week so probably hold.
    You could go Clark to Lockhart or Scott to Ross this week and Nank to Gawn, you'll need Gawn there and Nank is hurting your scores.

      Redd · 24/04/2019 at 19:52

      Cheers Rusty yeh ive gone with Clark to Lockhart and Nank to Gawn appreciate the response mate

        Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 21:10

        No probs Redd, Lockhart's not a big scorer but hopefully he's only on your bench…You're stylin now with Grundy and Gawn.
        Better than Nan's Crevice that's for sure.

          Redd · 24/04/2019 at 22:41

          Hahahaha yes and Maxy beat his BE with a 145 and Nans Crevice hahaha dished up a 59! Yes lockhart on the bench Hore n Duursmaa onfield sittin in the rop 4% time to push on!

            Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:48

            You're welcome mate, hopefully you have a big and badass year and smash everyone before you…keep it going mate!

    Redd · 24/04/2019 at 22:44

    Correction top 4% total score 11003!

sunny Coast Blazers · 24/04/2019 at 10:37

Sorry I just bought my first laptop yesterday and cant work out how to tab down to start a new line??? I'm basically computer illiterate. It was soo much easier typing from my phone hahahaha

    Ja191 · 24/04/2019 at 12:47

    Hit enter and it should go to a new line

      Redd · 24/04/2019 at 14:22

      Cheers mate!

Redd · 24/04/2019 at 11:04

Nankervis to Gawn Z. Williams to Laird or Dalhaus to Kelly??????

    Gen · 24/04/2019 at 12:07

    dalhaus to kelly imo

      Gen · 24/04/2019 at 12:15

thoughts on butters or atkins to ross and then darcy moore to tim Kelly?

    KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 14:06

    Sound stood

    Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:16

    All mentioned have more money to make imo. But if you really want Ross I’d get rid of butters. Moore will go up this week, and kelly will go down, so maybe wait a week there?

sick dog · 24/04/2019 at 13:17

DEF: Lloyd, Hurn, Smith, Duursma, Scrimshaw, Hore (Clark, Burgess
MIDS: Crippa, Fyfe, Oliver, Cogs, Rockliff, Walsh, Constable, Stack (Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
FWD: Danger, Boak, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew (Parker, Setterfield)
i've got 28k left in the bank and my start has been not great only ranked 17,000 (top 9%) and i feel as though my team has been fairly solid with no outstanding picks other than starting with Hurn and Rockliff, not sure what trades to make (28 trades left) some feedback would be greatly appreicated

    Redd · 24/04/2019 at 14:18

    Downgrade clark to Lockhart bank some cash!

    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 17:50

    I think you’ve got a solid team, think you’ve just got to wait and let Constable, Scrima and Drew all fatten up and then start painting the fence. Your fwd line looks very good, you just need another premo mid like Macrae or Neale. I assume you’ve got Grundy/Gawn in rucks?

Blue · 24/04/2019 at 13:40

Can someone tell me just how insane option 2 is?

1. Trade out Parker and Clark for Lockhart and Ross.

My team would be

B- Lloyd, Smith, Collins, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore (Lockhart, Burgess)
M -Cripps, Macrae, Neale, Crouch, Coniglio, Liberatore, Constable, Atkins (Ross, Gibbons, Scott)
R – Grundy, Gawn (O'Brien)
F – Dangerfield, Boak, Heeney, Kelly, Drew, Petruccelle (Setterfield, Bines)

$375K left


2. Trade out Gawn and Collins for Hurn and Walters

B- Lloyd, Hurn, Smith, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore (Clark, Burgess)
M -Cripps, Macrae, Neale, Crouch, Coniglio, Liberatore, Heeney Constable (Atkins, Gibbons, Scott)
R – Grundy, O'Brien (Bines)
F – Dangerfield, Boak, Kelly, Walters, Drew, Petruccelle (Setterfield, Parker)

$4K left

Only reason for option 2 is I feel like I'd have an improved and more stable forward and back line and with ROB's scoring, I'm losing less points from Gawn and Collins than I'd gain from Hurn and Walters.

And before anyone says anything, yes this blues supporter made the worst supercoach decision in history passing on Walsh…

    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 14:12

    It’s madness, you’ll still have to trade Gawn back in at some stage so you’re burning two trades. Just be patient and paint the fence to get Hurn and Walters. What happens when ROB drops an understandable rookie 50 and Gawn drops 130 whilst Walters tears his hammy.

      Blue · 24/04/2019 at 14:28

      Thanks Mick. I think I just needed someone to tell me.

        Mick · 24/04/2019 at 14:43

        No worries, It’s always tempting to find ways to improve your weaker areas.

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 14:43

    I want to pick Walters, but there are many rounds left and I’m not sure he will make it.

    If Melbourne have got any pride and are going to turn their season around, it has to come from Gawn leading the way and it needs to be in the next few weeks.

    Hurn is a must have. Every time their opponents kick a point I cheer, another +5 for the kick in.

      Derek · 24/04/2019 at 15:06

      Can you go Clark and Collins to Hurn?

        Blue · 25/04/2019 at 10:51

        I was pretty keen on Ross and I didn't have any dpp to swing back. Will hope the cats are accurate this week and might get him next along with Hately.

      Shake_n_bake · 24/04/2019 at 16:23

      Had Walters instead of Mundy all pre season switched to Mundy last minute. Shame

    Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 16:04

    Option 1 for sure, there is no way you should be trading Gawn.

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 14:07

Just a quick query for the community, how many trades do we have left after this round?

Also, whats everybody doing with the Lloyd and Whitfield situation (if you dont already own them), are you guys planning on waiting to see if they drop in price or are you just gonna bite the bullet and pay 600k+ for them? Considering they will most definitely be top 6 defenders come the end of the year, and that im losing points by not having them, I think you've just gotta spend the $$

    Pranav · 24/04/2019 at 14:54

    most likely 28 trades after this round i own lloyd and im waiting for a whitfield drop in price

    The Ranger · 24/04/2019 at 15:05

    Got Whitfield and hoping Lloyd might throw in a bad game at some point AB.
    If not I'll pay top dollar around the byes.
    27 trades left and holding this week as I don't particularly rate any of the bubble boys and none of my rookies have finished fattening.
    Hately next week maybe…

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 15:13

    Likely 2 trades, leaves 25.

    Lloyd has round 13 bye, won’t get him until after his bye round.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 15:44

      Yeah good call Derek, did you start with whitfield?

        Derek · 24/04/2019 at 17:22

        Nope. Went with Hurn.

        I’m like all other Whitfield owners, hoping he will have a bad game and drop in price. Sounds like Docherty all over

    Swans2012 · 24/04/2019 at 15:42

    23 after this week, $160k in bank, waiting on Lloyd to drop, only fielding duursma Walsh constable and O’Brien as rookies this week so that’s a positive

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 15:44

      Only 4 rookies on field? How many upgrades have you made so far?

        Swans2012 · 24/04/2019 at 15:59

        It’s been a confusing month for me, I’ve rearranged a lot so not traditional upgrading. Just been trying to make some sideways points neutral(or positive) trades to make cash. English to O’Brien, dusty to rocky, heeney to bruce(don’t ask), Bruce to Marshall (we’ll see), and still fielding brouch, Moore rocky libba Smith Williams. So it’s sort of hard to say, but I’ve upgraded rookies to Franklin and laird in the last fortnight so 2 I guess…

          The Ranger · 24/04/2019 at 16:14

          Bloody hell Swans you're giving the midpriced madness a real go eh?
          Looks like fun from the outside, be interesting to see how you go over the year.

            Swans2012 · 24/04/2019 at 16:26

            So far it is bringing all the pain you’d expect lol but always thought about giving it a go so we’ll see…but yes It definately is fun

    JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 15:58

    20 left and I'm not worried, since I doubt I will be playing finals, had a lot of fixing up to do at the start, now I'm going for cash generation, I have both Lloyd and Whitfield, who I have traded in since the start.

    Shake_n_bake · 24/04/2019 at 16:27

    Started with Lloyd & Hurn 27 trades left want to bring back Fyfe next week. Need a price drop from Whitfield maybe looking at maybe 3 weeks.

    COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 23:09

    30 Trades Left waiting on a poor score from Whitfield to bring him in, I own Lloyd

    Lazza · 26/04/2019 at 00:10

    To be pedantic … We want the Top 6 from here on in … not necessarily the Top 6 for the year… by way of example … the Top 6 after 5 rounds isn’t the same as the Top 6 over the past 3..

Connor · 24/04/2019 at 14:46

Lockhart or Ross… need some convincing either way

    Pranav · 24/04/2019 at 14:52

    ross over lockhart but im going with lockhart as my mid rookies could do with another week of rising while clark has made a decent amount and rumours of him being rested this week

    GloryDays94 · 24/04/2019 at 16:29

    Ross. Decent JS even when Cotchin comes back

Craig · 24/04/2019 at 15:04

Will worp average 90 from here there’s not much in the fwd line

    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 15:43

    I’d say so. He’s scored above 90 4 out of 5 games and his lowest is 85. Playing in the guts and seems their main clearance guy at the moment. I’d expect a 95 avg from here on out.

Greg · 24/04/2019 at 15:15

Thoughts on Clark to Lockhart and Rozee to T. Kelly?

    LeDoctor · 24/04/2019 at 15:33

    Lockhart doesn't have have good job security or scores and T. Kelly will go down in price this week unless he has a mammoth score. I'd say wait a week to trade in T. Kelly from Rozee and see if there's another rookie you could bring in instead of Lockhart. Rozee may go down in price a little though. Only pull the trigger if Clark will leave a donut in your defense.

Stupid Coach · 24/04/2019 at 15:49

Options this week:
1. McKay to Lockhart and Burgess to Ross via Settlefield DPP
2. Burgess to Ross via Settlefield and Sweet to ROB
3. McKay to Lockhart and Sweet to ROB
Leaves me with 24 trades. Option 1 or 3 as I currently have no bench coverage.


    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 16:32

    1. the other two make no sense, you've missed the ROB boat.

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 17:00

      1 by a mile. ROBs long gone don't spend 90k of ya bank on him

DEE · 24/04/2019 at 16:25

Who has the better JS…… Rotham or Lockhart? Also, thoughts on M. Hurley please community. Priced at $450K and was a top 10 DEF last year. POD?

    Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 17:08

    Lockhart probably gets a go due to all Melbourne outs, rotham going to struggle to get back in. Both are risky. Hurley a POD for sure, I don’t think he’s a top 10 def, but is thereabouts, If ya want him he’s a good price.

      dontblushbaby · 24/04/2019 at 18:46

      Lockhart with DPP imo

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 18:57

    Schofield came in for Barrass last week when it could've been Rotham, so not sure if he's the preference, although looks a good player.
    Regarding Hurley, I'd wait until you can afford a definite top 6 defender.

Sarah · 24/04/2019 at 16:25

What's more important, a VC loophole or F6 loophole?

I have Setterfield as my VC loop at the moment but also have Balta and Parker vying for the F6 spot – am I better off not trying to loop on the F6 and take Parker so that I can take advantage of a good VC score?

    JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 17:00

    The VC loophole.

KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 16:38

Hey guys here's my team, I have $103k in the bank 28 trades and will most likely be going Clarke to Lockhart (he will be on the bench) and Collins to Sicily. Thoughts?

DEF: Whitfield, Williams, Smith, Collins, Duursma, Hore (Burgess, Clarke)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Cogs, Sloane, M. Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Butters (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)

RUC: Gawn, Goldy (O'Brien)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Moore, Drew, Petruccelle (Balta, Bines)

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 16:57

    Good trade I think Sinny…Sic might not get any cheaper with the numbers he's posted the last few weeks…another premo in your defence is a good thing.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 10:02

    Good trades mate hope you did them!

      KSinny · 25/04/2019 at 10:51

      Sure did and I'm happy with them too, would've been nice if Lockhart got 15-20 more points but oh well lets just hope he holds his spot.

NoLanguage96 · 24/04/2019 at 17:02

Clark > Lockhart
Burgess > Baker

Pocket 150k and grab Hately next week so I can upgrade Moore to Kelly.


Brett · 24/04/2019 at 17:21

Trading libba to lockhart via dpp and parker to tom mcdonald.


    Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 17:23

    god no Brett.

    Brett · 24/04/2019 at 17:25

    Joking by the way..

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 17:27

      haha I hoped so but there are people out there who'd actually consider that trade..

    KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 17:38

    Great trade

hedski · 24/04/2019 at 17:23

Hey fellas.
1. Burgess to Lockhart and $130k to upgrade Spud Darling.
2. Clark to Lockhart and Butters to Rocky?

    Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 17:26

    1 for me hedski..

      TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 18:09

      Second that

    hedski · 24/04/2019 at 18:19

    Thanks lads, leaning that way πŸ‘
    Next question, who comes in?
    I've narrowed it down to
    Walters (shudder)
    Billings (shudder)
    Daniel (semi-shudder)
    Worpal (semi shudder)
    Gresham (hail Mary)

      TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 18:21

      I'd probably go Daniel. Think Walters and Billings could get easily tagged, Worpel isn't proven and Gresham is a little too inconsistent for mine

        hedski · 24/04/2019 at 18:25

        Walters and Billings both burnt me last year Tommy so I have Daniel at the top of that list also.
        I have Dunkley a f3 to also possibly deal with so it's a shit storm at the moment, I read the other day he could be dropped this week but not sure how accurate that is.
        Cheers bud.

      Derek · 24/04/2019 at 18:30

      Blakely will be back very soon, might even be next week. Will push Walters forward.

      Billing’s is going well. We have always said, He scores well when saints win. If you jump on Billing’s your jumping in the Saints bandwagon

      Daniels is going well, but I think we could be effected by JJ. Hasn’t happened much, but JJ only been back a couple of weeks, it won’t help.

      Worpel will have Shield and Howe to contend with, might not effect him but it won’t help either.

        hedski · 24/04/2019 at 18:38

        Thanks Derek, Blakley is one to keep an eye on when he comes back.
        Are you avocadoing the Rocky move?

TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 18:09

Hey guys, appreciate the feedback so far. Got one more question! Which rookie trade looks the best? One of these trades will fund Clark up to a premo.

1. Scott – Lockhart
2. Butters – Ross
3. Butters – Hately

    KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 18:12


    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 18:21

    2 makes you the most cash

      TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 18:35

      I plan on getting Hately in next week. If i culled Butters this week would Scott – Hately for 30k next week be worthwhile? Thats why i am currently leaning towards culling Scott this week and then going Butter – Hately next week. Am i right in thinking like this?

        KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 18:43

        Your trading out both either way so I don't think it really matters

          TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 18:45

          Fair point mate, just about deciding between Lockhart and Ross! Seen so many different opinions about whos JS is better i cannot choose!

    Mick · 24/04/2019 at 19:04


JoelP · 24/04/2019 at 18:31

Is it too early to cull Scott from north for Ross? His breakeven is 11 but Ross May make lots…
I plan on going Parker to hately Nxt week via setterfield

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 19:25

    Wish I knew if Scott is named.

    If Scott plays, he stays

Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 18:47

Hey Russty, we are on in The Rat Pack .. wanna wish you luck .. sure as hell I need some myself..

    Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 18:48

    Hope it’s not your birthday … I gave Neil his a week back ..😏

      Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 18:54

      Hey Lazza, good luck to you too mate, my Birthday was last week so feel free to dish it up mate ha

        Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 19:22

        Oh no …

        Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 06:12

        Happy for last week 🍻

Jsck · 24/04/2019 at 18:49

Is it still worth getting Boak at his high price? Pretty much a certain top 6 forward from here on in so might as well get his points the sooner the better.

    Brn · 24/04/2019 at 19:16

    Will drop at some stage soon

BradleyTC99 · 24/04/2019 at 19:00

Please help guys! Ross or Lockhart? I Cannot decide and its stressing me out big time!!!

    Brett · 24/04/2019 at 19:15

    Ross by a mile. Done

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 19:23

    no Stress. Neither are on your field.

    Ross looks the better option.

    I’m moving Clark, so can only go Lockhart

      BradleyTC99 · 24/04/2019 at 19:25

      If I trade in Ross, it would be for butters so he would be on my field. Does that change things?

        Holty01 · 24/04/2019 at 19:33

        Can you loop him with the E?

          BradleyTC99 · 24/04/2019 at 19:34

          Nah my 3 bench players are Scott, Gibbons and Atkins. And dnt wanna gamble on Scott being dropped

Nathan · 24/04/2019 at 19:03

Hey fellas,
Would I be better off trading out McKay, Burgess or Clark for Lockhart

Nathan · 24/04/2019 at 19:06

Is it worth going Scott to Ross or Parker to Baker this week?

    Eugene · 24/04/2019 at 19:14


      Nathan · 24/04/2019 at 19:15

      WHich would you do?

    TommyC99 · 24/04/2019 at 19:17

    Scott – Ross

StevenH · 24/04/2019 at 19:08

Need to paint the fence to get Laird, options are:
Parker to Baker to do either
Clark or Collins our for Laird

Clark will only leave about $30 k in the bank, Collins leaves me $90 k. Do you think Collins scoring potential justifies keeping him over Clark, or build the war chest and bag the potential extra points from Laird?

cash_cows · 24/04/2019 at 19:23

Think it's time for the double downgrade.

Clark -> Lockhart
Butters -> Ross

    COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 23:12

    That’s what I should’ve done this week oh well hindsight is a wonderful thing when Clark gets dropped not sure when the next defence cash cow pops up next

      Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 23:30

      Answerth could be ok if he keeps his spot.

Holty01 · 24/04/2019 at 19:32

It’s time. Good luck to all. I hope it’s not another frustrating week of SuperCoach.

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 19:50

    Same to you Holty…Lockhart's started well, Ross not bad either.

    JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 23:27

    Self inflicted on my part, by taking the VC off Gawn just before the start, just about all my opponents have the VC on him, so my SC weekend is ruined already and I had such a good one only a few days ago, such a distant memory now.

Nice_Person · 24/04/2019 at 19:42

Oliver fwd yuck

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 19:51

    Yeah hope that doesn't last, good to see he chopped that dead Racoon off his head.

Lekdog · 24/04/2019 at 19:49

Oliver in the forwardline, why god?

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 19:59

    Think it was only for the first few minutes Lek…thank baby Jesus!

      Derek · 24/04/2019 at 20:07

      First 10.30 minutes at full forward. Had 1 touch. Why?

        Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:09

        Just to change things up I'm guessing Derek, the wayward nothing kicks going in there wouldn't have helped him if he was 10 foot tall.

    Nice_Person · 24/04/2019 at 20:27

    He's playing quite a large role in the fwd line, he's the type of bloke that needs full time mids to score well
    Loves a handball

      Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:39

      very frustrating owning oliver..
      atleast Brayshaw is on track for a ton but very frustrating along with clarry

Finnius · 24/04/2019 at 20:09

Accidentally fielded Stack over Constable because of the Wednesday lockout and forgot to do it when I reversed my trades… hopefully he lifts in the next few quarters.

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:47

    Bad luck there mate, hope he does something in the 2nd for ya..gotta check that team at least 15 mins before bounce down.

      Finnius · 25/04/2019 at 03:36

      Ended up not too bad in the end… hopefully Constable doesn’t hurt me too much.

Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:12

Has Hibberd ever done a tagging role before?…seems to be keeping Dusty pretty quiet so far.

    Kewbie Bear · 24/04/2019 at 20:42

    58 for Dusty at halftime is flattering for what he has done

      Holty01 · 24/04/2019 at 20:59

      I thought so to. Going at 54% de

    Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 21:32

    Based on tonight’s effort so far, he won’t get another …

Tommy · 24/04/2019 at 20:26

Hope everyone has hore on the ground! Started really well!

    Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:42

    nah i decided to trade him to scrimshaw after R2 when i felt his JS was shakey and scrim was on the bubble & looked nice…
    Not my smartest move haha

      Holty01 · 24/04/2019 at 21:00

      Not a bad move MAV. Scrim has made some good money

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 20:49

    Yeah Tommy, Lockhart on the bench, thought Lockhart would be on a few more but think he gave some frees away…still good bank made this week though.

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 20:50

    He looks good. Should stay in team for a while

    Had him on bench last week, got him on field this week

Holty01 · 24/04/2019 at 20:52

Been watching the first half and thought Martin was having a stinker. Fumbling and coughing up the ball. But just looked at the scores and is on 58. WOW.

    Kewbie Bear · 24/04/2019 at 20:54

    Completely agree, has gone at 54% from 11 possessions!

Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 20:59

Don’t get why Ross is only on 38.. has had a good game so far and in a couple of chains that delivered goals..

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 21:01

    Chains don't get points in delivering goals though, only the immediate goal assist, I'll be happy if he gets another 30 points or so.

Brn · 24/04/2019 at 21:01

Gutted when oliver is spuddibg up.
Hopefully baker makes up 4 it

ZzZCalintZzZ · 24/04/2019 at 21:14

This Wednesday night under 12's game is thrilling!

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 21:18

    At least it ain't a blowout yet mate, give it another half a quarter.

Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 21:23

Hope Ross can get a few more touches…a 70+ would be nice, maybe a goal to boot.

    GloryDays94 · 24/04/2019 at 21:30

    Same mate. Traded Clark out for him.. so far Baker looks like the one I should have got…. couldn't justify the trade for such little money though

      Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 21:33

      Baker looks alright, but I think Ross has better JS with all the small fwds Tigers have in the wings…congrats again mate for your 3rd place overall last week!…that's epic.

        GloryDays94 · 24/04/2019 at 21:35

        Yeah was a good week! Hopefully can back it up this week with a decent score also. Still waiting on the email for my prize money haha

          Pranav · 24/04/2019 at 21:38

          Do you follow the doctor supercoach podcast? I’m pretty sure they mentioned you in the last pod

            GloryDays94 · 24/04/2019 at 21:59

            Yep I am πŸ‘

        GloryDays94 · 24/04/2019 at 22:00

        Ross has been huge In the last Russty!

          Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:03

          Great score for a rookie GD…very happy, just gotta hope Scott is dropped now so I can loophole him.

            Lazza · 24/04/2019 at 22:06

            I had him on field Russty πŸ‘πŸ€ͺ

              Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:18

              Noice Lazza.

            Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 07:18

            Scott or hope Constable doesn’t come in.

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 21:35

    A 4 day break will make the difference in last quarter.

    See if the young ones have anything in tank

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 21:45

Clarry has been very disappointing so far this year

    Nice_Person · 24/04/2019 at 21:58

    He's still gonna ton

      AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 22:06

      He's had a pretty high scoring quarter so far so it's not bad, he's just not scoring like a 600k+ player should. Hopefully if melbourne can turn their season around so can he. What makes it so much worse is that i had Neale in his place for most of the pre-season and swapped him in the last week

        cash_cows · 24/04/2019 at 22:14

        Yeah he's been very disappointing. Really want to rage trade but I know better than that. In my head he's M7 now when I bought him for M3/M4.

          Hazey · 25/04/2019 at 06:44

          Things can only get better for the D's which should translate to am extra 10-30 pts for him…. Hopefully

    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:00

    Not too bad score-wise this week but not worth his original price either…at least he tons up I guess…can see some people getting impatient with him next week though.

      Jester · 24/04/2019 at 22:04

      Just butchering the ball. Was hoping for at least 110+. Hate trading premos, but just not doing it this year

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 22:30

    He started game and second quarter at full forward. He not getting any points there with Melbourne’s kicking.

    I thought he did ok. Was the match leading tackler, only Houli had more disposals in the game.

    He did well to get to 105.

    Melbourne need to win games for him to go 120+

      dontblushbaby · 24/04/2019 at 23:00

      I like him as one the fallen prems in the next 2 weeks

Jester · 24/04/2019 at 21:55

Melbourne fans should be hoping for an early ski season. Clayton Oliver should join them. Oliver to be traded to Jake Lloyd on Sunday. Not after I rage trade him 10 times

    Gen · 24/04/2019 at 22:49

    Back to back tons. Not that bad buddy so dont be stupid πŸ™‚
    Once they sort their game out he'll improve id say

      Jester · 25/04/2019 at 15:31

      I'll hold him. Saw his score in 3rd quarter and was looking bad. Redeemed himself in last quarter. I'll have to temper expectations and take a 100 avg. Back to back 80s was frustrating, but if we trade everyone who has a poor run we would have no trades. He's a good player and hopefully both he and Dees turn it around.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 09:58

    Stick fat. He's been ok in a horrific start for the team

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/04/2019 at 22:08

Had Baker in but reversed trades and went with Lockhart instead, that hurts

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 22:24

    Lockhart was 24 after 8 mins. I thought, hello, but he turned it over a lot. Will be lucky to hold his spot in team

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 23:52

    You didn’t have Lockhart in field?

      AuroraBorealis?! · 25/04/2019 at 01:11

      Yeah but im still worried i've missed out on potential future cash generation/job security by going him over Baker

        Derek · 25/04/2019 at 01:23

        I went Lockhart, I feel I’m already $67k ahead.

        Baker will make more cash than Lockhart, but not much more than $67k, plus we get to spend it now instead of when Baker is culled. Big advantage.

          DavidC · 25/04/2019 at 07:08

          I feel Baker was the right trade if you had to put him on the field, Lockhart if you only needed a bench player. Only time will tell what was right.

Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:09

Sydney Stack's a ripper!…so humble and what a great interview, not getting carried away with all the hoo hah…good on ya young gun.

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 22:22

    He was on 16 at half time. Finished with 72.

cash_cows · 24/04/2019 at 22:12

Hedged and didnt get Ross last minute, thinking my mid rookies still got money to make and it's worth trading yet.
He's gone and gotten himself 90 pts.

    Derek · 24/04/2019 at 22:20

    You probably could have got 90pts against Melbourne tonight. They were very poor.

    I didn’t get Ross either. All my mid rookies have some cash to make.

Will · 24/04/2019 at 22:28

Take Stack's 72 or roll the dice on Gibbons?

    KSinny · 24/04/2019 at 22:37


    Russty_ · 24/04/2019 at 22:49

    Take the 72, good for any rookie.

      DEE · 25/04/2019 at 16:46

      Take it like a man!

Tommo09 · 24/04/2019 at 22:34

Petracca is gone next week

JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 23:15

At least I won't have to worry about the footy tomorrow night, since I don't have any Essendon or Collingwood players in my team.

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 01:17

    There will be plenty of people with the VC on Grundy up against TBC. He might go massive. If you don’t have Grundy, don’t watch.

Maverick_ · 24/04/2019 at 23:18

option1: Clark (BE43) -> Laird/sicily

option 2: Rozee (BE74) -> Billings/Worpel/Daniel

trying to Stay away from R13 bye players otherwise T.kelly would be an option fwd or try put the byes out of consideration

    JohnDJ59 · 24/04/2019 at 23:31

    Option 2

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 01:14

    If you have room for one more Round 13 bye player i’d go Kelly.

    Billing’s would be next best

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 09:57

    Option 1 with Sicily

    Maverick_ · 25/04/2019 at 10:31

    I think I might be able to go Clarke/Collins -> Sicily this week his BE is 75ish. TKelly is 120ish off the top of my head & May cop a Hutchings tag so I think I could probably wait 1 more week on kelly. But your right Derek his probably the one to get up forward. Thanks for the responses fellas

      Derek · 25/04/2019 at 12:26

      Good point. His 31 will roll out after next week. If you want him make sure you have the money.

ROB14 · 25/04/2019 at 06:08

Which 2 to field out of Scrimshaw, Duursma or Collins?

    redherringfc · 25/04/2019 at 08:53

    I’ve got the same 3. I’ve put Duursma on the bench, but will probably be able to loophole him at the expense of Scrimshaw, if he goes ok. I think Collins will have a decent outing against the Lions.

      ROB14 · 25/04/2019 at 09:21

      I was thinking the exact same thing!!! Haha

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 09:55

    As a North supporter, field Duursma

Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 07:25

Vc on Gawn had him as vc last week to. Think ill keep his score this week.

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 12:24

    I see we go head to head again this week Shake. Best of 3.

    I saw you went Gawn, well played. I’ll see your Gawn and raise you a Grundy.

      Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 13:13

      Didn’t see that l play you. Still at work counting down the time till l finish then a mad rush to the G. Good luck Derek!

TOPHAWK1 · 25/04/2019 at 09:18

Happy Anzac Day all!! Lest we forget…..

Back to Supercoach. And I will definately forget about you Dusty! Produced another rubbish performance. 17 pozzies in a side that wins by that margin does not cut the mustard. Time to look for better fallen premos elsewhere.

    Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 09:43

    I think he was flattered by his score as well Hawk. I really hope Trigga didn’t bring him him.

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/04/2019 at 09:50

      I doubt it. I know Trigga. He was talking him up big time earlier in the week though. Dusty has gone back to his old lazy ways. Always good to have that second look before making a decision. Just as well because he was scheit last night and your warnings on Dusty have been proven to be spot on.

        Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 10:14

        Wish he got that score last week when l played ya πŸ˜‰

          TOPHAWK1 · 25/04/2019 at 10:29

          But I dont have Dusty Shake!

            Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 11:23


        Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 10:40

        It is a shame because he is fantastic to watch in full flight. We may just have to wait for another contract year to see his best once more.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 09:54

    Happy I corrective traded him R3

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/04/2019 at 10:29

      Turned out to be a good call. No looking back now.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 11:00

    Glad I didn't start with him this year Hawk, almost did but then remembered, most years he ends up going below 500K before he gets it together later in the season.

      Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 11:09

      He's still tempting me, does nothing and scores an 88. What happens when he gets going. At 450k and a possible downgrade from Walsh it's tempting

        redherringfc · 25/04/2019 at 11:41

        I think at some point Walsh will actually make you money on that trade.

Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 09:48

Neale into Cripps again for me this week. Surely they won’t both have bad scores again 2 weeks in a row………….Surely not.

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 09:54

    Same here Holty. Was close to VCing big Gawn last night but a Wednesday failure scared me haha

      Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 10:20

      I’m probably more guilty then you not vc’ing Gawn. At least you considered it. It didn’t even cross my mind once.πŸ˜ͺ

ROB14 · 25/04/2019 at 10:22

Has anyone noticed that Ricky Henderson is killing it this season? Not considering him but his scores are hard to ignore!

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 11:01

    He's really stepped up with the outs at the Hawks, I have him in my Draft side, happy with that!

      ROB14 · 25/04/2019 at 12:58

      You would be, not sure what will happen when Shiel and Burgoyne come back into the side… Jack Steele seems to be ticking along nicely as well, doesn't need many disposals to score well

    Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 08:27

    Spoke about him on the pod

TommyC99 · 25/04/2019 at 10:28

Grundy or Macrae VC? Macrae going under the radar a little bit but surely Grundy monsters TBC?

    dontblushbaby · 25/04/2019 at 11:28

    Agree, just put the VC on Grundy , only issue is the loop as teams don't drop till later and we don't know who is in and out, might have to put Grundy on the bench with an E and Bines on field with the C for the time being

      Brn · 25/04/2019 at 13:57

      Thanks for this.

      I wouldnt have had a loop if i didn't read this.

      Fingers crossed jordan sweet doesn't get a game…

    DavidC · 25/04/2019 at 14:24

    Don't trust Macrae anymore, was sitting at FF for a lot of the game last week. And his body language would not have endeared him to the coaches.

Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 10:57

With Riewoldt out again for awhile with his injury / possible suspension, should be extra JS for Baker and Balta.
Balta just needs a couple of tons to start making some money, that should happen soon, anyone wanna sell me a Bridge?

dontblushbaby · 25/04/2019 at 11:36

The projected scores can sometimes give a false reading ,eg Libba is projected to get 140 , how do they work this out ? his highest score against Freo was 133 ?

I suppose it doesn't really matter as the actual score only counts

    Brn · 25/04/2019 at 13:46

    This is the reason i am projected to score 2400+

TBone_9 · 25/04/2019 at 12:28

The only good news I can take from last night is that I had the VC on Gawny. With my 250k in the bank, would you wait next week and go Butters to Fyfe (assuming I go Scott to Hately), Collins to Sicily this week or Parker to Worpel this week. Grabbed Lockhart for Clark this week and didn’t snatch up Baker or Ross which is haunting me now. 27 trades left too. Cheers boys

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 15:22

    Hi TBone, well done on having the VC on Gawn, I did have, but I took it off just before the game. One thing I did get right was trading in Ross, even though he's on the bench, he should make some good cash. I would be going Parker to Worpel, I traded Worpel into my team in round two and haven't regretted it. Your two trades for next week, Butters to Fyfe and Scott to Hately both look good.

      TBone_9 · 25/04/2019 at 20:59

      Cheers for the response DJ. You’d be stoked with having brought Ross in this week! He looks to be a great player and will make some good dollaraydoos. Yeah Worpel looks the goods, should be a nice consistent scorer too. Hately not being named helps a bit, will be looking at Hayes, Rowbottom this week as a downgrade option for Scott

Brn · 25/04/2019 at 12:53

Had a drunken dream that rocky scored 250 and Scrimshaw scored 120. Was so cut that I missed rocky, and it dawned on me that he will pull out a monster score soon (like he always does) and we are all going to want him.

Wish my midfield wasnt already so packed

    Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 13:06

    He already has

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 13:14

    Rocky is tempting at his price.

    To get him this week would mean culling a rookie early, which would mean losing potential cash on that rookie, probably the same amount of cash that Rocky will rise by, tgerfire no net cash gain. Only gain will be points difference.

    The question is then only, is he in the best midfielder? Is he better than Macrea, Fyfe or Kelly (the 3 I have reserved places for once Libba, Walsh and Constable have done their job)?

    If I had 3 rookies on field in guts, I would likely get him.

      Derek · 25/04/2019 at 13:16

      Same question for Billings. Is he in the best 6 forwards?

      I’m thinking he might be, if Saints keep winning a few.

        Brn · 25/04/2019 at 13:39

        He is playing just as well as the seas9n he averaged 132.
        Helps to have a good team around him.
        Bloody tempting

          Derek · 25/04/2019 at 14:39

          Tenpting. Like I said, if you have 3 rookies in field and some cash in Bank, might be a good move.

          I’ve got $350k war chest, if Scott doesn’t get named, Rocky is only premium in that price range.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 25/04/2019 at 14:19

    Hope your dream comes true Brn, got the VC on him

    Jester · 25/04/2019 at 18:05

    Rocky playing North and Scrimshaw playing Blues. Could be a dream come true. Still underpriced. Ultimate risk v reward,

Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 13:06

Where is the panic room boys

    Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 08:28

    Should be up now

The unsullied · 25/04/2019 at 13:58

What's the chance of Jordan Sweet getting picked for the doggies. I would hate to loophole him and then he gets picked.

    Brn · 25/04/2019 at 14:52

    Im expecting a big change up due to their carlton loss.

    Their VFL team also has a bye, so would be ready to play.

    Still i think we are safe with sweet. There's a lot better to pick than him

    BadgerHoney7 · 25/04/2019 at 14:53

    Sweet is out for another 2 weeks. Got suspended in the VFL for a hit. Was a chance to come in that week if he didn’t get suspended. That was last week.

      Brn · 25/04/2019 at 15:02

      Wicked!! Thanks

Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 14:01

Fantasia out

cash_cows · 25/04/2019 at 14:28

Field Petrucelle or Parker?
Leaning paker because Petrucelle aint killing 5 again.

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 14:32

    Do you have Bines on bench? Use him as loophole

      cash_cows · 25/04/2019 at 14:53

      Nah I dont. I stuffed my loophole.
      Have E on Balta with Setterfield as my donut.
      In a tight league h2h and kinda hoping Grundy does sub 130 so I'll just field both but might need to choose if Grundy does too well.

    redherringfc · 25/04/2019 at 14:45

    I think it’s all downhill from here for Parker. He was nowhere for most of last week and I was amazed he cracked 50.

DavidC · 25/04/2019 at 14:50

Who scores more, Hooker or Hore?

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 14:56

    Reckon they both do pretty well for themselves πŸ™‚

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 16:57

    It's a concept called humour…try Googling it.

      Multi_ · 25/04/2019 at 17:07

      Hilarious straight over his head

Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 15:14

ive Back tracked. Now have Grundy as vc. Hopefully it pays off

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 16:37

    Looking pretty good at half time Holty 68

Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 16:21

Pathetic effort from the Bombers scoreboard-wise considering it's such a big occasion at almost half time.
Hope they can make it worth watching in the second half.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 16:29

    That's better at half time!…at least they're in with a sniff now.

      DEE · 25/04/2019 at 16:39

      Daniher goes bang outside 50 on the siren…… Joe you bloody beauty!!!

Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 16:38

Moore on 48 at half time, hope he can go better than 79 this time.

    dontblushbaby · 25/04/2019 at 16:49

    Correct ,just thinking the same thing, he hasn't put 4 quarters together this year

      Derek · 25/04/2019 at 17:21

      He is doing it again.

      56 at 3/4 time

        Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 17:53

        At least he's consistent I guess, turned out to be a cracker in the 2nd half.

    Jester · 25/04/2019 at 17:58

    He scored 79. Spot on Rusty

DEE · 25/04/2019 at 16:41

Parker or Petrucelle on the field?

    DEE · 25/04/2019 at 16:42

    Sorry just scrolled up… didn’t realise he question had been asked 2 hours prior! Cheers….

StrangeTreatmeant · 25/04/2019 at 16:48

Merrett gets a lot of the footy but mostly its easy hball receives when he's unopposed that he turns into dinky backwards handballs or scrubber kicks. It's not very often that he actually hits a target or get a hard ball but somehow his de and cp stats stay high?

Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 17:22

Umpires can certainly ruin a game … wish they would umpire to the rules … seems incorrect disposal no longer applies…

    Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 17:53

    What a joke …

Derek · 25/04/2019 at 17:57

Merrett -4 in the last quarter. Just couldn’t get near it.

    dontblushbaby · 25/04/2019 at 18:53

    Not a top 8 mid me thinks? He was on my radar but not now

      Derek · 25/04/2019 at 19:07

      90 at 3/4 time I was thinking 120+

      His TOG has been around the low 70’s%

TommyC99 · 25/04/2019 at 18:03

79 again russty. Coincidence? I think not….

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:05

    It's bizarre isn't it?…what's your theory mate?

      Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 18:11

      77 theory done

Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 18:19


    neil demons delight · 25/04/2019 at 18:31

    great game Two evenly matched teams . Essendon could have won but their disposal let them down It seems not so long ago we said Treloar's disposal was suss but now it's the difference between him being elite and Shiel a pace behind well down both teams

      Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 19:05

      7-1 from set shot ess. Coll 2-9. Great game thou

JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 18:22

Scott not named for the North game, you bloody beauty.

    Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 18:26

    Scott, Hately and Burgess all out

      Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 18:27

      And Clarke out too..

        Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 18:29

        Without the ‘e’ 😊

        JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 18:29

        Clarke as well, it just gets better, now I just have to work out who to take off to get the Hore and Ross scores.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:26

    Hi five mate, Ross's score is on now πŸ™‚

      JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 18:33

      I have Walsh, Constable and Drew on field, I really don't know who to take off, I'm leaning towards Constable.

        Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:39

        Lots of ins at the Cats and Constable on the extended bench so he could miss'd never take Walsh off.

          JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 18:46

          No I wouldn't Russty, I was just saying they were my rookies on field in the mids, Walsh could end up being my M8 in my finished team. Thinking I will take Constable off, at least Drew is a certain to play and scored 105 last game.

    Shake_n_bake · 25/04/2019 at 19:08

    I get Ross score now. Just got to chose between constable and Atkins? I cant believe l started the yr with Larkey. Kept him on the pine for 1st 5 rds then traded him this week for Ross. Only because l didn’t know teams till now

    NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 23:14

    That feeling when the two rooks you trade out get dropped the day after :)))

      Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 23:19

      Yeah NL, I probably should've traded Burgess out but he was worth F.A…I went Collins for the cash.

        NoLanguage96 · 25/04/2019 at 23:30

        That's fair enough mate. Never had Collins myself but very happy with Baker's game last night compared to anything Burgess has dished up that's for sure!

Kewbie Bear · 25/04/2019 at 18:27

Bloody Hatetly dropped after a 95!

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 18:30

    Not good, I was going to get him in as well.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:31

    Bit stiff jeez!..made way for Greene or Corr

      Kewbie Bear · 25/04/2019 at 18:32

      I was relying on downgrading to him after this week, ah bugger

        Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:33

        At least you didn't already trade him in like 4500 others Bear.

    Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 18:34

    Now I regret not going Ross. Was going Scott to Hately next week.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 25/04/2019 at 18:35

    Looks like will hayes is the go to downgrade option next week

    s c tragic · 25/04/2019 at 18:40

    that is this weeks strategy down the gurgler , aahhh well save 2 trades.

iLoveNMFC · 25/04/2019 at 18:38

Take Stack's 72 or play Constable?

    Rick Grimes · 25/04/2019 at 19:36

    Stack the points. Charlie might edge him but not worth the risk, imo.

Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 18:50

So, in summary:
Rookies out : Scott, Burgess, Clark, Hately
Rookies in squad: Constable, Scrimshaw, Rotham, Petrucelli,
New Rookies : Answerth.. DEF/MID, $117,300.., a very good footballer .

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:57

    Be good to have a look at Corbett too Lazza, and Rowbottom in his 2nd game. Shame Hately got the boot.

      Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 19:37

      Good one Russty, totally missed Corbett… Totally forgot about him being a pre-draft dispensation selection .. mature age fwd… likely to be Burgess mark II

        Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 21:11

        Hopefully a lot better Lazza, wouldn't take much!

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 19:13

    I’m assuming Scrimshaw, Constable and Petruucelle get a game on Sunday.

    We find out before the next game

      Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 19:38

      Should do

Maverick_ · 25/04/2019 at 18:57

Some rookie carnage..
Scott, Clark, burgess and hately all out..
I had hately penciled in for next week so this makes things interesting.
Burgess being omitted is a blessing he can now hold value and not lose $$.
Scott out allows me to bench constable and take ross's 89.
Clarke may make room for sicily but it's a huge chunk of my bank too make this happen

    Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 19:15

    If you have the money MAV, id get him in without hesitation

      Maverick_ · 25/04/2019 at 19:34

      I'd have 75k spare but have one eye on fyfe in the next week or two also but can always paint the fence later to make that work i guess Holty

JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 19:01

Is Bont worth getting in this round ? he didn't go that well against Freo at OS last season.

    Sharkmove_King · 25/04/2019 at 19:07

    If I was keen on getting Bont I wouldn't let a score against Freo last year scare me off. He's playing a much more midfield role now so can't really compare last year….just my opinion

      JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 19:15

      That is a good point Shark, I do like the fact he is finally getting the midfield time we have been waiting for.

    Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 19:14

    He was underdone nearly all of last season. Wouldn’t pay to much attention to last year John. He has started really strong this year and he is one I’m seriously looking at

      JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 19:24

      I had him in my team as a pod most preseason, but he went out when I decided I needed to strengthen my fwd line, so I've had him on my watch list from the start, plus I just can't afford the likes of Neale, or I could wait till next week and get Fyfe in instead who I also have on my watch list.

    TBone_9 · 25/04/2019 at 21:05

    I like the look of the Bont DJ, but for a cheaper price I would rather Fyfe next week if you can!

      JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 21:21

      Yes, it is either Bont this week or Fyfe next week, since I can only afford one upgrade at the moment and Fyfe would be about 40k cheaper than Bont is now.

        Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 21:24

        Fyfe had 7 clangers last week John, coming in after his week off = 36 points, could've had a beauty of a score if not for that, think he could go 120 or more this week.

          JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 21:50

          Hi Russty, just had a look and Fyfe scored 151 against the Doggies at home last year, so if he does that again, he won't go down as much as first thought.

            Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 22:03

            Yeah John this could be the week to get him…depends on who you like more out of him and the Bont though who's also going pretty well.
            Also depends on which one you think will be a definite top 8.

              JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 22:55

              I'm thinking both will be and hope to end up with both at the end.

Matt · 25/04/2019 at 19:23

Used one trade already this round bringing Ross in but have 3 defenders not playing (Clark, Andrews, Burgess). 26 trades left, $150k in the bank – which one should I do:
1. Andrews to Laird/Sicily (he is only out for 1-2 weeks)
2. Clark/Burgess to Answerth/Young/Rotham
3. Hold and cop the donut

At this stage I think I will hold unless Rotham makes the team for Sunday's game. Would love to hear your thoughts πŸ™‚

    Rick Grimes · 25/04/2019 at 19:39

    I'd probably look at option 2 if you're confident Andrews is back in a week or two. Rotham might be the go.

    Sharkmove_King · 25/04/2019 at 22:55

    I'd go option 1. Andrews doesn't look like being the top6 you would have been hoping for when selecting him at the start of the year, now is the perfect excuse to offload.

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 23:11

    If you want Laird, I would go option one, but if Rotham is named once teams are finalized, I would go with option one, Burgess to Rotham.

Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 19:25

only early days but I would think most would be happy with the scores this round. All I can complain about is half my bench has been dropped this week. Very much hoping there are no late outs.

    COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 23:18

    Got a feeling this week will be a huge scoring week there hasn’t been a huge one yet this season I reckon we’re due!

neil demons delight · 25/04/2019 at 19:32

Noah Answerth from brisbane might be well worth a look .DPP d/m a real leader this lad

    Lazza · 25/04/2019 at 19:40

    Had him in my list pre-season… was always going to jump on him when he was selected..

      neil demons delight · 25/04/2019 at 20:02

      Me too Laz He is one of those kids who is good at all tasks but not special at any .What makes him different is he puts in and leaves nothing on the park also his leadership is also excellent looking at him closely

        Browncow · 25/04/2019 at 23:25

        Sounds like you are describing Jarrod Berry NDD. He has worked out ok for them! On to the watchlist goes young Noah.

          neil demons delight · 26/04/2019 at 12:58

          very observant Browncow. a younger version of him.probably not as good either but good none the less NDD

            Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 13:00

            Hope he does well mate, need to get someone in for spud Burgess in the next few weeks.

dontblushbaby · 25/04/2019 at 19:35

I should take Grundys 134, but thinking of rolling the dice on Neale ? Maybe a bit greedy, tomorrow I will probs take it

    Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 19:37

    Very greedy

    Rick Grimes · 25/04/2019 at 19:40

    135 is my line, but id take that. It's a solid C score.

      Nice_Person · 25/04/2019 at 19:50

      But your line is 135, he didn't make it

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 20:06

    Take it and be happy you don't have to worry about it now, anything over 125 is worth taking.

      Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 20:11

      125+ I always take.

    Derek · 25/04/2019 at 20:27

    137 is my VC cut off. He didn’t quite make it.

    Cripps or Danger?

      Sixtybloody6 · 25/04/2019 at 20:59

      I'd go Bines tbh

Rick Grimes · 25/04/2019 at 19:45

Time to move Rozee? BE is at his average.

    Maverick_ · 25/04/2019 at 19:51

    could be Rick.
    I was very close to doing so but i will give him one last chance to go big against north and start generating again plus i want Tkelly and he has a BE of 117 and a hutchings tag coming possibly so happy to wait one week on him. Instead i may go clark -> sicily (BE79) and deal with rozee next week

Yeahnah · 25/04/2019 at 20:12

Stewart or Laird?

    Maverick_ · 25/04/2019 at 20:16

    Laird imo his proven & milera out should help.
    Tuohey is back for geelong

Matt · 25/04/2019 at 20:17

Laird or Sicily?

    Ja191 · 25/04/2019 at 20:26

    Sicily for pod and better bye

      DEE · 25/04/2019 at 20:42

      Laird would be the safer option…. but in this game you gotta take risks sometimes, So bring in Zac Dawson!

DEE · 25/04/2019 at 20:38

Umps handed COLLINGWOOD the 4 points today, so blatantly obvious they were the favoured team! Dirty rotten mongrels…. ESSENDON deserved the Chocolates today that's all I'm going to say! Cheers Community…

    Rick Grimes · 25/04/2019 at 20:58

    Or maybe they just cocked up a few calls. Not everything is a grand conspiracy.

    Sixtybloody6 · 25/04/2019 at 20:58

    Kleenex will soak up those tears mate.

      DEE · 26/04/2019 at 00:53

      CATS Supporter here… easy lads, just thought Essendon were the better team today. That’s all…

        Shake_n_bake · 26/04/2019 at 06:43

        Ess kicked 7-1 from set shots pies 2-9. 4-5 in the 1st could av been easily 9 straight all gettable. Umps will always get decisions wrong. Like the Bagley free against Langdon and Grundys push in the back to Guelfi both resulting in goals.

    DavidC · 26/04/2019 at 06:52

    Gee, every losing team blames the umps … play another record.

    Murray · 26/04/2019 at 08:13

    Cry me a river D. Collingwood was in front for 100% and would have been an injustice to lose. Ess lost it in the first qtr. there own fault. To boo Pendleton was disgraceful in the context of Anzac day. Buckley was right in what he said, gave those ess supporters a quick direct, clip for their behaviour

DEE · 25/04/2019 at 20:50

Lads just a quick question…. does the loophole also apply on AFL Dream Team? Just having a browse through the website and wanted sort of compare the two fantasy games, any feed back would be lovely. Thanks

    Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 08:31

    Yes, I think it does

Pranav · 25/04/2019 at 21:26

Currently going to take vc Grundy and whatever score Parker gets with the E. How low would Parker have to go to roll the dice on another C and petrucelle?

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 21:43

    I'd just take Grundy's score and Petrucelle's.

Connor · 25/04/2019 at 21:27

How did Jack Crisp only get 79SC with a DE of 75%???

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 21:41

    I think it's because most of his possessions were uncontested, and he had 5 clangers.

    gator59 · 25/04/2019 at 22:44

    Because crap always sinks to the bottom and cream always rises to the top… Simples

Watching the Front Bar .. Effen funny … but gee Buckley is a class and act …

    COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 23:19

    Yeah ripper show love the Front bar

Stupid Coach · 25/04/2019 at 21:44

Do I put Bailey Scott on the field for Butters and take Ross's score, put Constable on the field for Butters or leave Butters on the field and hope outscored Ross and Constable.

VC – Whitfield, Coniglio or Mcrae
C – Mcrae, Cripps or Danger

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 21:53

    I'm sure you can work out your own VC and C out but putting Scott on field and taking Ross's score is the sensible thing to do. He got 89.

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 21:57

    Scott on field for Butters to get the Ross score, VC Coniglio, C Cripps.

    Ja191 · 25/04/2019 at 23:01

    I think coniglio might cop the tag would go macrae into cripps myself

Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 22:08

Oh you have moves?…I thought you were just a banned troll here under a dodgy Russian VPN who enjoys inciting arguments and abusing people.
Must be fun to be you… Say hello to your imaginary friend for me.

COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 22:18

Butters or Gibbons on field I’ll field Constable stuck on these other two

    Ja191 · 25/04/2019 at 22:25

    Butters easily, I wouldn’t bank on gibbons scoring over 70 to often

      COREYSC · 25/04/2019 at 23:20

      yeah the role change for Gibbons has made me second guess myself

Murray · 25/04/2019 at 23:05

Thoughs on Goldstein to obrien . He is averaging only 10 less than Goldstein. Build a cash war chest of 400k. Let obrien increase in value, then upgrade to grundy in 5-6 weeks time. Thoughts please

    Holty01 · 25/04/2019 at 23:16

    When is Jacobs back? You will need to hope you have made enough to move him to Grundy otherwise you will be left with no R2 or wasting trades to correct it. Personally I don’t rate Jacobs and think ROB is better but here in SA everyone loves Jacobs so he will slot straight back into the side.

      Murray · 26/04/2019 at 08:09

      Hi holly, I think Jacobs will be out for at least 4 more weeks. Agreed that Jacobs will come straight in when right, but by then Rob should have peaked in price and be culled.

    Russty_ · 25/04/2019 at 23:16

    You should've got ROB in last week, lost 81k, not doing that, he's almost 14 less av than Goldy.
    You'll probably want to spend all that extra money on someone else before Grundy.
    Better off going Goldy to Grundy with a fattened rookie to a new rookie, and use ROB's money to upgrade a forward…if you have Bines in the fwd line.
    It's all a pain in the ass though, I should've started with Grundy and Gawn haha

      Murray · 26/04/2019 at 08:07

      Thanks Rusty, I think it is worth the risk and don't believe it is too late after his 81k rise last week.
      . Obrien will be my R2 for now The immediate cash of 400k would be used to upgrade to 2 premo, one def and 1 fwd. in 5 weeks time obrien should have peaked and I will find a way to bring in grundy around the bye rounds

        Dan · 26/04/2019 at 09:28

        I had thought of a similar move last week (as I also have Goldy). But, the other risk involved is that you don't know what you'll be paying for Grundy in 5 weeks time. If he has made a few big scores you could be trading him in when his price is at its peak, and lose out that way.
        Whereas if you go down the path of cashing in a rookie to get to Grundy, then you can choose when you trade him in.

    JohnDJ59 · 25/04/2019 at 23:37

    A week late.

      Matt · 26/04/2019 at 00:29

      I almost went goldy too lockhart via DPPs.
      ROB R2 bines R3 but i didnt think it was worth it I'd of had a 700k bank to fix holes in my 22 But it would be hard work getting ROB to grundy in a month. I'll just go goldy straight up to grundy sometime

        JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 00:54

        I started with Gawn R1, Lycett R2, Bines R3, traded O'Brien in last week, he is now at R2 and Lycett F6. Round nine I will trade both O'Brien and Lycett out to get Grundy.

Rookie splinters · 25/04/2019 at 23:20

If Scrimshaw doesn’t make the cut, I’m copping a donut in defence this week. Used my trades on Ross and Baker this week which I’m wrapped about, but SC karma might be coming after time…

    Rookie splinters · 25/04/2019 at 23:21

    Coming after *me…

      Brn · 26/04/2019 at 07:05

      Scary stuff mate. If it helps, scrimshaw has been named extended bench every week but has played

        Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 10:03

        Should be safe he’s named there every week but finds himself in the final 22

No idea · 26/04/2019 at 01:35

Any love out there for Toby Greene?
Contemplating going L. McCarthy > Greene, or maybe even Goldstein & McCarthy to Worpel & Greene to strengthen my pathetic forward line, moving O'Brien off the bench to R2 and using Bines's DPP (I'm frustratingly10K off making that move to Worpel and Kelly)

DEE · 26/04/2019 at 05:19

Attention Mr. Lekkdogg…. Simpson playing this W.E. mate? Very far down the extended bench… In Tassie, cold, wet and sleeves?

    Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 08:33

    If he does he'll pass SOS on most-played games for Blues…pray for sleeves

WTFoxtrot_58 · 26/04/2019 at 07:42

Too all cursing the Hately out better this week than next.

    DavidC · 26/04/2019 at 13:33

    He might be a late in.

TelescopicCox · 26/04/2019 at 08:11

Am I crazy for holding Darling? He's lost so much value that any trade (other than going to Greene) seems like a negative move. I have money to go up to Boak but that is a $160K swing on their starting prices

    Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 08:33

    Trade him

      TelescopicCox · 26/04/2019 at 10:40

      Thanks all! I think I'll trade. Best options:

      1. Kelly
      2. Boak
      3. Laird/Sicily (will have to take Balta's 31)
      4. Rocky (will have to take Balta's 31)

        Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 11:01

        Kelly if he works for you with bye's coming up. hopefully hutchings doesn't follow him around sunday.

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 09:03

    Nah mate scored a solid 9 for you

    Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 10:01


TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 09:04

So i had planned to bring in Laird for Clark this week, but am starting to rethink it. If i pulled the trigger, id only have 80k in the bank to get Fyfe in next week. But if i did that, i really cant see how i'd be able to get him in. I traded Butters this week, so im gonna need a hefty bank with the likes of Scott and Atkins on my my bench. I could bring Laird in this week if i commit to trading Constable or Libba but is that smart? Any ideas community?

    Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 09:54

    I am in the exact same situation for me it’s clarke to sic & I’ll have 70k left n probably have to pass on Fyfe next week who I’m dead keen on gettin! I think I may go down to rotham (if named) this week to build the bank. I don’t want to miss Fyfe at a juicy price of 560k but Sicily’s price is also very tempting…

    Libba is doing more than enough to hold his place in our teams tommy & constable still has too much cash too make if he keeps his avg up. I won’t cull either yet

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 11:26

    Moore and Scrimshaw getting close to upgrade

TOPHAWK1 · 26/04/2019 at 09:32

Anybody else thinking of punting Jordan Clark at lunchtime on Sunday? Zac Tuohy has come back into the Geelong side and I think Clark might be on the outer now. Their opponents (West Coast) have the opposite problem. Tom Barrass is out of the team for an extended period with a serious foot problem (Will need surgery). Josh Rotham has been named on the extended bench. If he plays on Sunday, Clark may well turn into Rotham. He is on the bubble, Ave 77, BE -82, set to jump to $200K and will now hopefully have decent JS with Barrass out.

    Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 09:47

    Clarke to Rothan/Sicily. Not sold on rothams JS & probably won’t see sic at this price again with a BE of 75. I’m on the fence

    Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 11:16

    That’s what I’m doing Hawk if he plays

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 13:02

    Just not sure if Rotham gets a game TH, they brought Schofield in for Barrass last week.

      Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 14:41

      Hey mate. Was Rotham listed as an emergency? If he wasn’t, they wouldn’t be allowed to play him unless they pay a $20,000 fine like Essendon did with Daniher

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 15:10

        Not sure Holty, first game he covered for Duggan, second game was for Jetta, then last week he was omitted for Schofield

Matt · 26/04/2019 at 11:42

considering a real shark move
very similar to Murray i saw below
Goldy too Rotham (if named) free up around 400k via a couple DPPs
O'brien would shift to my R2 hoping to get grundy in a few weeks when ROBs cash gen stalls at 450k i hope.
785k would be nice to fix up a few holes in my side would allow a few upgrades across my 22.

    Murray · 26/04/2019 at 13:20

    I really like it Matt, I think I am going to do it. in my situation the 400k will go to 1 premo def (probably Lloydf) and 1 premo fwd (probably Daniel). When Obrien has accumulated enough (450k) I will sell him and a rookie and get grundy in about 5 weeks. That's the plan anyway

      Matt · 26/04/2019 at 13:38

      realistically before Jacobs returns (he is still considered #1) ROB will make 400k not sure he can make 450 but here is hoping murray.
      I think i can get 3 premo upgrades out of my 780k and still a little bank left for the grundy and the 13pt difference between goldy & ROB will soon be forgotten about as the premos will well and truly cover that difference.

        s c tragic · 26/04/2019 at 17:13

        Forget Rotham.

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:27

          Yeah with Venables and Brander coming in for Redden (injured) and Vardy (omitted)…Rotham isn't the Coach's first choice, hence Schofield came in for Barrass last week over Rotham.

ThatsGoldJerry · 26/04/2019 at 15:16

Hey community, do I hold Sheed ? Or move him on via dpp to Walters or T Kelly ? His last two weeks have been very ordinary πŸ™ Has Gaff put an end to his output ? Thanks all

Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 15:29

Redden's out this week so that could make a difference to his output, I'd move him on to Kelly regardless.

Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 17:58

We are LIVE and talking #supercoach. Got questions? I may have answers.

Lazza · 26/04/2019 at 18:41
