SuperCoach Standing / Panic Room: Round 6

Published by Kev on

Round 6 is already two games old and my whole world has been turned upside down, black is east, up is white, and the Panic Room this week is a hodgepodge of “advice” and a place where you can sound off about how your team is travelling (or to rip on Lek for talking smack about our Lord and saviour, Max Gawn)

By the virtue of AFL’s insane scheduling we only had two days to wallow in the self pity that was round 5. A shift in how our teams scored saw the round being a low scoring week. Our rookies decided to rock up fashionably late to the party, leaving most of us caught out with them warming the pine without an E on them. On the flip side, our premiums decided to put their feet up and put in the kind of effort I do during the working week.

Me

Trades are tricky this week, some fallen premiums are on the horizon but are rookies are so slim there’s no value in the trade or they have negative or low breakevens so there is much more cash to be made. If you’re still sitting on Max (love him) trades, the one move I don’t mind is cutting ties with Chris Burgess. Four of his 5 scores have been below is breakeven this week, and could only manage two touches and a mark from 81% game time against the Crows (edit: and he’s been dropped this week)

This has been Patch this week as we’ve somehow survived bringing you fresh content as the AFL schedule around the clock games for your viewing pleasure. We’re all tired and cranky so the abuse in the podcast is real this week. Luckily Barron is here as the mature one who can actually make sense in his Around the Grounds article. Get your fill of Matty’s beautiful cheat sheets and head on over to Damo’s genius article on our captain choices for the week. 

The News

We’ve hit a mini crisis with three popular rookies all losing their spot this week. Bailey Scott, Chris Burgess, and Jordan Clark are all out. Friendly reminder if you do choose to trade, you CANNOT reverse it. Be 120% sure with your move. Also, with Geelong playing the final game of the week it opens up a captaincy loophole for the entire weekend (assuming you haven’t used your VC on Gawn/Grundy yet).

No changes at Port for tonights games against North. Tarryn Thomas is back for his small amount of owners, as is Luke McDonald. Paul Ahern is one of three outs. Josh Corbett (FWD – 123.9k) will make his debut for Gold Coast in their only change. Noah Answerth (DEF / MID – 117.3k) will also debut in one of four changes at Brisbane, Harris Andrews’ injury the most SuperCoach relevant of the bunch. Myles Poholke is being rewarded for his huge 30 disposal / 4 goal game for Adelaide reserves last weekend. Will Hayes holds his spot at the Dogs, Jackson Trengove for Bailey Williams being their only change. Cam McCarthy returns for Freo in David Mundy’s 300th game. Toby Greene is back for Giants but they’ve surprisingly dropped Jackson Hately. Nick Blakey is back in the side for the Swans.

On Sunday, neither Hawthorn or Carlton have any confirmed outs as yet. Of the 8 new names, only Ben Stratton is listed on field, although you’d expect Charlie Curnow to play. Charlie Constable is back at the Cattery as promised, they’ve also named tall targets Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k) and Ryan Abbott. Zach Tuohy will make his season debut. Josh Rotham has made the extended bench for West Coast and will be on the bubble if he’s named.

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

I almost gave The Lock a rest this because having to acknowledge Jack Billings is bringing up all sorts of PTSD symptoms that my very expensive therapy sessions were meant to deal with. Richo has seen the light, finally putting Jack onto a wing where he has tallied 28, 28, 32, 34, and 28 possessions to start the season. Add in an average of 5.6 marks, 2 tackles, and a tick over 400m gained per match Billings has created a safe floor for himself. 

His breakeven of 69 this week will see his price tip over the 500k mark. Keep him in mind when upgrading over the coming weeks. On form he is a monty to be a top 8 forward this year and will give top 6 a good crack.  

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Are we still calling it the Battle of Bridge? Because we shouldn’t, it’s literally the worst name for a cross town rivalry.

RUC

Shane Mumford (10.2k) price isn’t moving much despite his solid start to the season. He has put up 3x 80’s and smashed Sinclair in 62 v 14 in the hitouts back in R5, 2017. 

DEF

Both teams are very stingy in this position having yet to concede a fantasy hundred to a medium defender in 2019. There’s also going to be tags galore going on with de Boer, Hewett, and Cunningham all doing jobs in recent matchups between the sides. Spending up on a Lloyd or Whitfield could tank your lineup. Jeremy Finlayson (8.3k) looks to be good value, averaging 80 over the past month. Jackson Thurlow (9.2k) may see some extra opportunities if GWS put effort into stopping Lloyd. Zac Williams (11.2k) hit three figures for the first time in 2019 last week. We know what he can do when he gets going. He has a handy record in this fixture but is probably a tad overpriced considering his low floor. 

FWD

Are we going to get a monster Buddy (11.2k) game? Phil Davis has been surprisingly named this week and could be a late out. Nonetheless, Buddy has averaged 19 disposals, 9 marks, kicked 7.4 at an average of 106.5 from the two home and away matches against the Swans last year. If Davis is ultimately ruled out, he becomes a lock and load play for me.

Michael Walters dined out of GWS last week, which brings goal kicking mids Isaac Heeney (MID / 12.9k) and Tom Papley (MID / 11k) into play. If you’ve got plums the size of a planet, Toby Greene (9.6k) destroyed the Swans in the elimination final last year but could also score 50 and kick someone in the face. 

MID

Jackson Hately (8.1k) would have been fantastic value if he wasn’t omitted, there’s a rumbling he may win a reprieve with Davis’ dodgy ankle so if Hately does come in don’t get caught napping. For value I don’t mind the bargain priced James Rowbottom (5.8k). Showing no problems in finding the pill, his 60 last week came from only 66% game time.

Despite their tagging pedigree, the Swans have had their struggles limiting opposition midfielders. Josh Kelly (14.2k) is still underpriced given his ceiling. Tim Taranto is another that has flashed 120 point upside this season. JPK (13.6k) will be up for this game but his ceiling smashing days are behind him. Harry Cunningham (13.1k) has back-to-back 120’s, you’ll be able to snag him at low ownership as coaches chase the GWS guns.  

If Hately gets named:

Another great write up Kev!
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, and 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?
With Rotham being named i could pass on Laird this week, dowmgrade Clark – Rotham which will give me 469k in the bank and can loophole 2 of Duursma/Scrimshaw/Rotham.
Any ideas community?

SC_Kev7

Cheers, Tommy! If it's a case of who is the better option to bring in then it's Fyfe every day of the week. Laird hasn't shown that ceiling he had last year. His price should remain fairly consistent (b.e of 104 this week). You'll miss out on so much cash jumping off Constable now, Libba playing like a keeper.

TommyC99

Cheers Kev! I do agree id much rather Fyfe over Laird and if it means waiting an extra week to make an upgrade then so be it.
Scott looks like the one to make way for Fyfe but i'd need fyfe to drop to 535k which aint happening. So i will need to make another rookie trade to raise the cash. Or i just do Atkins – Fyfe in one trade but he has a negative BE so not sold on that.

Do i pull the trigger on Clark – Rotham or hope Hayes plays another good game so i can downgrade Parker – Hayes? Is Rothams JS solid enough with Barrass out?

Nice_Person

If you can trade aitkins to fyfe you do it, who cares if Atkins will make a little more cash, fyfe will also increase in price so that offsets the raise in Atkins price

TommyC99

Yea Atkins – Fyfe can be done without another downgrade, but if i did bring in Rotham or Hayes, would it be smart to punt Scott instead since he aint making cash?

Maverick_

Scott's a very very slow burn from here with a few 40s and a 20. and he's been omitted not 'managed' this time he will struggle to make it back in norths 22 he is always running away from the ball! I'll be looking to punt him before atkins

SC_Kev7

All things being relative, Atkins should gain around 25-30k this week. Fyfe's b.e is 164 and will remain high for another week with that 63 still in his system. Worth waiting at least a week

Nice_Person

Yeah I'm talking about making that trade next week……….

Maverick_

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 n Fyfe’s ceiling is what gets him over the line and the C option each week so he’s priority.

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

TommyC99

Completely agree Mav, and if Hayes can be a good option next week with a bit of luck ill be able to get Laird at a fairly similar price in 2 weeks. I'm intrigued about Rotham. Going to make good coin but can he stay in the team for 3-4 weeks?

Maverick_

Yeah I really don’t know about Rothams JS but with few fat cows on the horizon I think it’s a risk I’ll take with a 56 & 98 he can score well. Clark has tuohey back now so his JS now decreased & even if he gets named again his TOG and output you’d assume will take a hit. I'll wait for final teams to drop for rotham.

SC_Kev7

Not a huge West Coat follower but it seems they are doing a 'last man in, first man out' thing with their team selections. I don't believe he has good enough job security to get 3-4 price rises

TommyC99

So you would pass on Rotham and hope Hayes is a good pick next week? If hes not i can just upgrade Atkins – Fyfe

UpBeat

Could be a few huge scores this week. Captain choice out of Neale, Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe or Danger? Who do you think will smash it?

Maverick_

flip a coin UpBeat any can go huge on any given day..
probably neale or fyfe

Nice_Person

Grundy or gawn

UpBeat

Fyfe looks ready to go 150+ this week playing at home. His 13 clearances was awesome but he also had 7 clangers and he handballed 20 times.

Patch

Can't go past Cripps myself UpBeat

Swoopsta

Hold or trade H Andrews? Assuming it's 1-2 weeks out as per AFL injury list

Yeahnah

I’m holding him

Swoopsta

probably will hold too. trades are too precious

Patch

Depends on your rookie situation. If you've got coverage, hold

Matt

So a left field move here a real shark move you may say
Goldy too Rotham free up around 400k via a couple DPPs
O'brien would become my R2 i got him last week i'd be hoping to get grundy in a month when ROBs cash gen stalls at around 450k. 400k would be nice to fix up a few holes in my 22..
thoughts?

Matt

I'd actually have 700k in my bank i already have 350 in bank sitting there

Nice_Person

I thought goldy has been going OK?

Matt

been okay yes but ROB only 13 pt less avg the cash generation and bank of 785k is tempting could grab atleast 3 premos across my 22.
O'Brien should get too 400-450k by the byes or am i asking too much?
grundy is a must have around the byes is all so it'll be goldy to grundy then either way or make cash by doing O'Brien NP.
Have i got this all wrong and risking too much

KSinny

Gotta risk it to get to the top. If u think OB can keep his scoring then I would say yes do it, the 15 or so points youd lose from Goldy wouldn't matter if u had an extra premo or two over a couple of rookies.

Matt

what can we expect ROB to make by the time jacobs returns though, 450k?
I still need a bank to get grundy in around byes

Nice_Person

Would of been easier starting Grundy in hindsight hey

Matt

2020 set and forget

Rick Grimes

Or not, if you pick him up for $150k less at some stage. If you've got G&G, you're short premos somewhere else.

Nice_Person

Yeah good luck on saving 150k Grimes I don't see Grundy or gawn dropping that much for the whole season

Patch

Agreed, have to risk it for the biscuit. It could completely detail your season though, Matt, and getting Grundy in could cost you 400k to go from ROB to him if the timing is off.

Rick Grimes

I'm running ROB at R2 at present. It's a fun ride. Actually think he'll pump out a ton or two shortly. Looks a good player.

Matt

i want too do it but getting cold feet on rotham i don't think he gets named.
Leaving me with no real downgrade target in the fwd or backline to make this happen

Matt

Rotham missed out now i don't know how to make this happen 🙁

bc7

Looking at going Clarke out this week; have a budget of $550,000, what are your thoughts community? Laird, Stewart maybe a Rampe or Pittard?
Cheers

KSinny

Out of those 4 Definatly Laird, is a proven scorer and I think he will go better without Milera. If u don't already have Sicily tho I'd go him over laird

UpBeat

Laird is a bargain. Adelaide will improve so you'd think Laird will too. And I agree with KSkinny about no Milera.

Lazza

Maybe think about Houli next week instead of Rampe or Pittard.

bc7

Cheers Gents, much appreciated!

Patch

Laird all the way

Russty_

McGrath or Mills!, nah just joking…Laird is the best price he might be this season.

UpBeat

Trade to who?

UpBeat

Swoopsta ?

TelescopicCox

Who do we think the Hutchings tag goes to – Danger or Kelly?

Tossing up between Sicily, Rocky & Kelly for Darling. I want to keep some money to bring in either Fyfe or Kelly next week once they bottom out

Ja191

kelly, shown he can't handle it. I'm not expecting anything over a 70 from kelly

Matt

realistically what can we expect O'Briens price to get too by the time jacobs returns in 5-6 weeks, 450k?

Mick

I’d be happy with $400k. Easy upgrade to a premo fwd by DPP or nice bank if a fwd rookie actually turns up.

Holty01

Hi Matt. Just be mindful that Jacobs is out for up to 6 weeks. I’ve known of players coming back weeks earlier then they were meant to come back. Not saying this will happen but make sure you have a plan B

Patch

I reckon 350k is more realistic, but wouldn't rule out 400k.

sc_damage

anyone else got him at R2? I had to bin the hoff… worked out well so far

JohnDJ59

I have O'Brien at R2, I will be trading him out at round nine for Grundy, since it looks like that will be when Grundy hits his lowest price point and O'Brien should have gone up by about 200k by then.

Shake_n_bake

Curnow to miss.

Russty_

Both named, one on field, one on the bench.

Shake_n_bake

He didn’t train

Saritz

Nope, his in!

Nice_Person

Fake news

BradleyTC99

Thoughts on Josh Rotham community? With the likes of Clark and Scrimshaw close to culling do we need to take a risk on a def rookie with shaky JS?

Brn

Im taking a risk on him if naked. Best defender there is right now for scoring potential so he only needs a few games to make what others would.

Brn

Haha if named*

Don't care if he plays naked as long as he plays

Dan

Apparently Phil Davis is still in doubt for the Giants. If he's not able to play Hately is the most likely replacement.

Holty01

I hope so but don’t see a midfielder to be the likely replacement for a key position defender. Fingers crossed.

Nice_Person

Yeah not sure how hatley is most likely for Davis

COREYSC

Cause they brought in Corr I assume

Dan

Yeah, that's what was suggested on afl.com.au. Since they've brought Corr in, it would allow them to bring in Hately if Phil Davis doesn't play.
Though I'm not sure either. We'll have to wait and see.

Brett

What time will we know sunday teams?

Lazza

I think it is around 5:30 Brett..

Brett

Thanks lazza

Dash

Have not made a trade this week and didn't get Stack, Baker or Ross in.
Should I just hold for next week or what trade could I make this week. 27 trades and 146k

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

Valens_FC

Burgess to Rotham (if selected) might be the one assuming Rotham takes the place of Barrass. Clark I think will be back next week probably in place of O`Connor, but Clark out also an option. Then in a good position to upgrade Moore / Scrimshaw next week.

SC_Kev7

Barrass wasn’t in the team last week so him being out is not opening up a spot

silversovereign

Nice looking side dash. Whats your rank?

Steeeve

Hateley being dropped really puts a dent in my plans to paint the fence and bring in Fyfe next week. Absolute worst timing with Ross playing Wednesday too, I'd have brought him in for sure otherwise.

Patch

Agreed. Split rounds are the absolute pits.

Russty_

Surely all this Wednesday, Thursday Football rubbish could be eliminated Patchy if they just got rid of the byes altogether?…Bastard Byes!

DavidC

Fyfe is just about due to get injured again or suspended.

Shake_n_bake

Redden out maybe Rotham comes in

Russty_

They said on afl…Venables is in for Redden.

Shake_n_bake

Gibbs out to

Russty_

Looks to be named shake..where'd you hear that?

Maverick_

Hasn't travelled to melbourne with the team russty looks set to miss with gastro, chayce travelled as emergency

Russty_

Oh ok, cheers mate, I don't have him but seems weird he was named in the Team.

Maverick_

yeah been fighting gastro they were giving him every chance to get up mate so easier to name him and withdraw if he isn't better i guess. hopefully a positive for crouch & smith owners

Shake_n_bake

Didn’t travel with the team

Lazza

According to Pyke on the radio today If it is a 24 hr dose, Gibbs will travel on a later flight. Game isn’t till 4:35 pm

BlueBaggerJosh

Kinda content with holding Sheed for this week, redden out should put Sheed in the midfield role and venables half forward

Gav

Hey champions what's going on with Pettrucelle. Named emergency or just on extended bench? Anybody in the know?

SC_Kev7

Extended bench, Gav. Wouldn’t be too concerned by it. Playing well

Gav

Cheers Kev.

Rick Grimes

If they drop Pet after a 5 goal bag, I'm done.

Russty_

He's in Gav, would've been pretty stiff to miss.

Ja191

do i loop collins with duursma or scrimshaw?

Kym

Duursma.

redherringfc

I usually put the E on the earliest player, Duursma in this case, and then if I use the loophole I try to put the latter player on the bench, Scrimshaw in this case. This way you’re covered, as best as you can, for a late out.

I’ve been caught out before, trying to get an extra 20 points and ending up copping a donut.

I also think in this case, Collins will go ok against the Lions.

Russty_

Hey JA, I'd put the E on Duursma and have Collins as my last choice after his miserable 45 last week.

TommyC99

Rotham not named. Can’t say it’s not expected but it throws a spanner in the works for what I can do with Clark

Brett

Corbett early after this week maybe

Russty_

Answerth could be an option in the next few weeks.

Paddy Danger

Guys, I’m thinking cousins up to Rocky. I’ve got 300 in the bank, but with this trade, I’ll be down to 25. Thoughts?

neil demons delight

Is he a premo mid? I have 5 better plus fyfe. that leaves m7/8 and the way Walsh and Libba are playing ,they can't be denied. but we still need quality benches. Go for it PD I am and what the heck , Rocky gets the V C ,NDD

Russty_

25's alright for round 6 Paddy, go for it if you think he's a keeper top 8.

BradleyTC99

Hey guys,

So Rotham not being named sucks. So i'm left with Clark and no idea what to do with him. I can upgrade him but that would mean passing up on Fyfe the following week. Do i just hold him and hope there are downgrade options next week or just make the upgrade and pass on Fyfe?

BradleyTC99

Yeah ive decided will be holding him. Just ultimately like Fyfe more

Lekdog

We are LIVE and talking #supercoach. Got questions? I may have answers. https://www.twitch.tv/lekdoggames

Brn

Will see how answerth goes this week and will jump on for clark a week early if looking good. Corbett could go ok too

Lazza

Me too …. and Brander will be on the bubble next week … though his numbers are nothing to get excited about ..

Patch

Don't jump on rookies early, Brn. We know how much it can hurt us.

Nice_Person

Do it brn

DavidC

Zac Bailey will be back soon. Answerth would have to play to keep him out of the Lions backline.

Russty_

Hately 4779 traded in,
Rotham 3432 traded in
Constable 3254 traded out
What are people doing out there?…lol

Maverick_

hopefully these people are ahead of us in the rankings russty if so we are laughing we will be leap frogging them all soon enough haha

Russty_

I'm sure they're ahead of me mate, I'm having a shocker this year but made a bit of a comeback last week. 🙂

Lazza

Must be those who were given 40 trades by mistake.. I’d take a bet that none of ‘em know how to loop hole … or are fantasy players who set and forget each week.

Russty_

Lucky I'm on the comeback trail, and not obsessed with rank like you, thanks for keeping such close tabs on my progress.
You must be a fan…you're doing ok this year so far RAGE trader , hope you don't fk it up this year like you did last year lol.

tommy

66 whats your rank?

Russty_

Pffft I wouldn't waste my time researching anything about you..you told everyone who you were when you were blowing yourself a few weeks ago. I ended up about the same rank as you last year so how bad must you be after being in the top 1000 with 6 weeks to go…FAIL.

Russty_

Yep I did, and so did you Kyle. It was your other personality that finished top 3K.

Russty_

I know you did for a fact, cause we were in the same League together, so you're lying.
That's what happens when you run out of trades with 6 rounds to go…top 1000 to 10000+

Russty_

Not upset at all, you're just flat out lying….you finished 10K plus last year, I know this for a fact….a residual of your "aggressive trading" policy you spouted off to everyone here.
You were out of trades with 6 rounds to go, and paid the price for it.

Russty_

I don't need to bet…I was in the same League as you , I saw it with my own eyes.

Russty_

Haha, keep lying to yourself and your alter ego mate, you know I'm telling the truth.
You flopped like a cheap ho last year and ended up ranked over 10000.
Like I said, I saw it with my own eyes, you're just too pathetic to admit what a cluster fk your whole last season was.
You were in my League, so I saw it, I don't lie, and have no reason to lie to anyone.
Don't start something you can't finish…FLOG.

Gainsy

Ldu and cousins to selwood and rockliff…. crazy?
Light on for premos but heaps of cash in the bank.
Only playing for mini league.

Russty_

Yeah maybe Rockliff if you think he's s top 8 mid, don't think Selwood is anymore.

Patch

Have to agree with Russty (as I normally do, gosh you're a gem Rus)

Gainsy

Rocky looks good but injury prone. Selwood seems pretty reliable (not as much as before but still good)… perhaps im looking at old guys too much because pendels was on my radar at the start of the year given his offseason getting over his back issues.

Russty_

Looking forward to everything you post tonight getting deleted again mate? 😉

Russty_

Love you Patch. 🙂

Maverick_

what do we know about mitch lewis from hawks? i know NIL.
Even a bit of insight on corbett and answerth, lachlan young would be appreciated chasing a def/fwd rookie with solid JS

Russty_

Hey Mav, at 198 cm and 95kg's he's probably gonna be Roughie's replacement when he retires, knowing the Hawks they'll keep playing him I reckon, if there's room, looked pretty good in his debut…but he is a tall key forward.
Apparently had to choose between playing District Cricket, Golf ( 1 Handicap) and Footy and chose Footy.
Maybe Derek could tell you more about him, or Hawk131415… ,if he didn't have an implosion the other night.

Brn

I like him but i don't if that makes sense. Very much a key forward and looks to be set for 10-15 touches max, and 1-2 goals a week. Like rusty said, he is the proposed 'heir' to roughhead (apparently why hawks didn't chase lynch too hard) which sounds promising, but for once i actually don't like him as an option

Brn

But i guess all we are looking for is someone who will play and improvement. 2 ticks there. Sorry for being so inconclusive.

Nice_Person

Cmon lets leave hawk alone, he's obviously been banned and can't defend himself anymore so no need to bring him up and have a (little) dig

1 handicap is good, would be interesting seeing a bloke that big play

Russty_

I wasn't having a dig, I hope Lek lets him back in, I don't harbour any ill feelings towards him, he has some deep seated resentment towards me but I can deal with that. I get he's a passionate guy, but not sure why he has a problem with me.
Not everyone's gonna like everyone here, it's just the way it is.
Your mate however, I don't mind if he stays banned.

silversovereign

What did he get banned for?

Russty_

Well, I called Sicily a Flog, as everyone does, and Hawk took it personally and then it just went on and on.
Hope Lek and or Patch let's him back in, I miss his 68 commas and 37 exclamation points in each post lol.
He's not a bad guy, he just hates my guts but that's fine haha

silversovereign

Haha. Sicily is a massive flog. Hawk went on and on with me the other day when I pulled him up for spouting wrong rules. Rather than put his hand up and admit he was wrong he suggested not going on about it. Oh the irony.

Nice_Person

Again boys digging at a bloke that can't respond. Doesn't look good

Terry

Are you 66 or Wow from last year? Because you and that hawks guy sound like them that's all

Russty_

No one was digging, why did you have a dig at us …again?…most posts you've done lately have been digs at people.
You and your toxic useless mate who mostly exclusively have digs at people…and then they all get deleted.
You're just trying to start trouble and turn people against eachother, like you've always done.
You're both very transparent in what you do here.

silversovereign

Nice person 🤔You, like hawk, are confusing stating facts with having a dig. Only someone on the wrong side of the argument would have that view.

Frank

Pretty obvious that hawk and nice person are the same bloke but doesn’t matter. Good to know your still around!

Maverick_

Is hawk in any leagues with us..
He in any of yours russty?
all a bit suss

Derek

Lewis isn't too bad. He is very good below his feet for a big guy, runs good, trys hard. I think what you saw last week will be what you get from him. I'll have a look at him next week as a forward rookie downgrade. $149k

Shake_n_bake

Higgins out tonight big out

neil demons delight

thats a huge out Shake Gonna get Rocky shortly hope he fires

Big out for norf that!

3. Darling to Fyfe
4. Darling to Sicily

Thanks for the tips this week!

Nice_Person

Fyfe

Nice_Person

Or Kelly, your fwd line sucks

TelescopicCox

It’s a dumpster fire. I’ll probably go Kelly

Russty_

Good side TC, except for Darling obviously, I reckon just go fwd for fwd in Kelly, he's cheap and good except for the 39 score.
How much money left over if you do that?
The other guys, Fyfe and Sicily could probably wait a bit.

TelescopicCox

Cheers Russty. I’m probably getting too cute thinking of swinging in a premo on a different line. I’ll probably go Kelly who should be good for the long run

Russty_

It's probably better to keep you Mid/Fwd swing TC…I sacrificed mine last week and I don't like not having the option.

kevdup

Faced with the same dilemma Tcox, leaning towards Kelly, need more forward contribution, am a little concerned that Hutchings may tag him, but he'll end up a top 6-8 forward by year end. Good luck

Russty_

Yeah he probably will Kev, regardless if he gets tagged tonight.

Nice_Person

Hope he doesn't get tagged tonight, that would mean he's rocked up for the wrong game

Brn

Gawn and grundy combo finally paying off. Lets see how all the o'brain R2 teams compare this week

Rick Grimes

We'll be running an extra couple of premos in other lines, so think we'll be fine. I'll have your Grundy for a discount soon enough.

JohnDJ59

Grundy will be coming into my team in round nine for about a 70k discount, not as much as I hoped, but it will do. Hey Rick, looks like we are up against each other in the JR-Mega League this round.

Nice_Person

Tell us about these extra premos Rick? The rookies in defence and mids have been performing great. So unless you have 6 premos in the fwd line I'm not sure that you really doing as well as what you say

JohnDJ59

O'Brien

Brett

Duursma and drew to both ton tonight. Calling it now

Saritz

Nooooooooooooo!!!!! Never, ever, EVER utter that out loud. The SC gods are always listening

Russty_

You'd have to delete your comment first Saritz so he can delete his, and then I'd delete mine haha

Saritz

So we are doomed then :/

Russty_

Doomed to 73 each, not terrible..but zip it next time Brett lol

TOPHAWK1

Duursma stays on the bench. Walsh THE GOLDEN BOY at M8. Welcome!

Brn

Butters making his BE is the issue

Tommy

Can’t loophole, field duursma or scrimshaw?

TOPHAWK1

I am the same Holty. Rotham didnt make the cut. Still have 25 trades, Walsh, Gibbons, Constable, ROB, Drew, Scrimshaw, Duursma, and Hore. So still plenty of rookie cash being generated. In hindsight I should have taken either Ross or Baker last week. Dont have Stack either. Just going to have to stay patient and hope Hayes is the saviour next week. Have Parker, Balta, Burgess, and Clark as the rook liabilities now. All in all no need to panic. Bloody tempting to whack the VC on Rocky tonight! Scored 172SC against North in the JLT.

Holty01

No Jacobs either.

Holty01

Gee I’m happy you didn’t pull the trigger on Rocky Hawk. I have you in one of my leagues

Holty01

Was hoping to move on another rookie this week to upgrade next week. Doesn’t seem to be anyone available. Guess I’ll stay patient for another week.

Russty_

Looks like Westhoff's started on the ball, might be turnaround time?

Gainsy

Let's hope so… rob to hoff for a ruck/fwd option sounds nice

Derek

Interesting

AuroraBorealis?!

Let's go Rocky VC, big game from you tonight please

neil demons delight

me too AB risky but why not

Russty_

Looking pretty bloody good so far boys!….could be a big leg up this week.

AuroraBorealis?!

Starting to slow down unfortunately

Russty_

Could still go 120 plus.

AuroraBorealis?!

not enough for VC 🙁

silversovereign

Same here AB. Scored 174 against norf in the jlt

COREYSC

Any danger of Drew or Butters doing something! Lift Lads!

One Touch Wonder

I put the C on Rockcliff tonight for a big SHARK MOVE

silversovereign

Got the vc on the pig too

Rick Grimes

Was looking at qtr time. Has been shut down. Hopefully can go large 2nd half.

silversovereign

Scored 4 more points in 3 quarters then he did in the first quarter. Sigh 😔

Tommy

VC would’ve been okay but C, that’s unlucky!

JugHead

Norf kicking into their forward line is the greatest display of butchery since jack the ripper…….

Russty_

If not the Dees this year or the Saints the last 8 years.

Russty_

Drew and Duursma, I guess we can hope for 65 from each of them?..bit of a bummer they both had slow starts.

Ben

Duursma was on 29 at qtr time. Quiet 2nd qtr

Brett

70 each would be great. Everyone would have drew on field

Russty_

84 + 62 = 146 divided by 2 = 73 each, not too bad I guess for rookies.

COREYSC

Shocking game from Butters super hot and cold this kid, he has all the talent in the world world tho

Ben

Boak is a machine. Only 75% game time but when ever he's on he's always getting it.

Rick Grimes

Yep, gotta find a way to get em in.

Kewbie Bear

Glad I looped butters with Stack!

Russty_

Butters looks to have hit a wall…has to be traded out.

Kewbie Bear

Agree Russty, I was hoping it would be for Hately but will need to re-evaluate

Russty_

Maybe to Hayes next week.

JohnDJ59

I traded Butters to Stack last week.

JohnDJ59

I'm hoping Boak VC can in some small way make up for me taking the VC off Gawn.

Nuggety

Jeez these port rookies can play…

Russty_

Some can…others are still on 53 and 48.

Finnius

The rising star battle isn't over yet… Rozee is an absolute weapon.

DavidC

Stack is going ok as well but I think Walsh would have to get injured for anyone else to have a chance.

Russty_

Port fans booing Pittard every time he gets near it, almost as bad as the Bombers fans last night.
Those 3 Bombers fans in the picture make Pies fans look classy lol

ToneStar

Never knew booing was against the law.

Russty_

Yeah but booing a guy cause he left his old club to pursue a different future?…kind of immature from the fans.

Tommy

Mate, this is when it’s acceptable to boo! Happens every time a player leaves a club!

Russty_

Fair enough Tommy but jeez, they never missed an opportunity haha

Tommy

Hahaha no they did not!!

Sixtybloody6

Russty gets booed every time he gets out of his dark room. He hates booing. Nothing to see here guys.

Russty_

My room doesn't get dark mate, my 75 inch 4K TV keeps it nice and bright while I'm watching the Footy.
Anything to contribute Supercoach-wise ….or is it just the usual?

Russty_

Just cause I can…bigger is better when watching the Fooseball.

Finnius

Not having Travis Boak is really hurting my season. Need to find a way to get him in quickly at this rate.

Derek

Yeah. Need to get him.

Boak will be about $587k next week. That is starting to get expensive.

Russty_

Who are you jumping on with all your extra dollars Derek?

Derek

Decided to keep it simple and save some cash and went Scott to Rocky, left $70k in Bank. Was excited at quarter time tonight.

Russty_

He'll be ok, will get fitter I think and run games out better.

TelescopicCox

He keeps getting it done. Hoping he has a quiet patch to come back down again but it’s looking unlikely

TommyC99

So I’ve made my first SuperCoach stuff up of the year. Had duursma on field but swapped him out for Clark, and haven’t got the E on him. Do I cop the zero or upgrade Clark – Laird. It means I won’t be able to get Fyfe next week like I planned

JohnDJ59

Who else is on your bench.

TommyC99

Burgess

JohnDJ59

Clark to Laird then.

Russty_

I'd just get Laird Tommy, Fyfe needs to get 164 to not drop this week. Can't be copping a donut. Laird might not be this cheap again.

TommyC99

Cheers Russty!

Finnius

I don't mind going Clark to Laird to be honest – more points this week is more valuable than more points next week (especially considering you are going to LOSE 60 more this week), and our mid rookies are playing so well at the moment there is no real rush to upgrade. There will be more bargains later in the season.

TommyC99

Cheers Finn. Sound logic!

silversovereign

If you plan to get Laird anyway then it’s a no brainer.

Derek

I was $2k short doing that exact trade. I think do it and get Fyfe later

AuroraBorealis?!

F*ck me rockliff is frustrating to watch

AuroraBorealis?!

God i love seeing Zeibell stick to Rocky like a glove while he just watches Boak run around gathering up 50 touches

JohnDJ59

So do I, VC Boak.
