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:

TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 09:40

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 · 26/04/2019 at 09:50

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:03

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:17

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:37

          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_ · 26/04/2019 at 11:05

            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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:40

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 14:20

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

    Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 09:58

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:09

      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_ · 26/04/2019 at 10:30

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:36

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 11:22

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 10:45

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_ · 26/04/2019 at 11:03

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

      Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 11:04

      Grundy or gawn

      UpBeat · 26/04/2019 at 12:16

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 22:41

    Can't go past Cripps myself UpBeat

Swoopsta · 26/04/2019 at 11:18

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

    Yeahnah · 26/04/2019 at 13:41

    I’m holding him

    Swoopsta · 26/04/2019 at 15:41

    probably will hold too. trades are too precious

    Patch · 26/04/2019 at 19:12

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

Matt · 26/04/2019 at 11:33

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 · 26/04/2019 at 11:36

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

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 11:44

    I thought goldy has been going OK?

      Matt · 26/04/2019 at 11:54

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 12:15

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 13:08

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 14:18

            Would of been easier starting Grundy in hindsight hey

              Matt · 26/04/2019 at 14:26

              2020 set and forget

              Rick Grimes · 26/04/2019 at 14:34

              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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:28

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

          Patch · 26/04/2019 at 19:19

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 14:40

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 14:54

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 17:28

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

bc7 · 26/04/2019 at 12:05

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 · 26/04/2019 at 12:12

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 12:20

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

    Lazza · 26/04/2019 at 14:38

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

    bc7 · 26/04/2019 at 16:13

    Cheers Gents, much appreciated!

    Patch · 26/04/2019 at 19:19

    Laird all the way

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:23

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

UpBeat · 26/04/2019 at 12:22

Trade to who?

    UpBeat · 26/04/2019 at 12:23

    Swoopsta ?

TelescopicCox · 26/04/2019 at 12:41

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 · 26/04/2019 at 16:33

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

Matt · 26/04/2019 at 12:43

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

    Mick · 26/04/2019 at 13:27

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 13:35

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:20

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

    sc_damage · 27/04/2019 at 12:44

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

      JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 13:05

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 12:47

Curnow to miss.

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:21

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

      Shake_n_bake · 26/04/2019 at 17:32

      He didn’t train

    Saritz · 26/04/2019 at 17:58

    Nope, his in!

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 18:26

    Fake news

BradleyTC99 · 26/04/2019 at 12:48

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 · 26/04/2019 at 13:06

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 13:07

      Haha if named*

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

Dan · 26/04/2019 at 13:51

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

    Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 14:01

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

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 14:17

    Yeah not sure how hatley is most likely for Davis

      COREYSC · 26/04/2019 at 15:19

      Cause they brought in Corr I assume

        Dan · 26/04/2019 at 15:42

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 14:17

What time will we know sunday teams?

    Lazza · 26/04/2019 at 14:25

    I think it is around 5:30 Brett..

      Brett · 26/04/2019 at 14:27

      Thanks lazza

Dash · 26/04/2019 at 14:50

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 · 26/04/2019 at 15:00

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 15:48

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

    silversovereign · 26/04/2019 at 19:13

    Nice looking side dash. Whats your rank?

Steeeve · 26/04/2019 at 14:54

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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:20

    Agreed. Split rounds are the absolute pits.

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:27

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

    DavidC · 27/04/2019 at 07:25

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

Shake_n_bake · 26/04/2019 at 15:04

Redden out maybe Rotham comes in

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 15:24

    They said on afl…Venables is in for Redden.

Shake_n_bake · 26/04/2019 at 15:04

Gibbs out to

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:21

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

      Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:26

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

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:34

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

          Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:36

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 17:33

      Didn’t travel with the team

        Lazza · 26/04/2019 at 18:19

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 15:09

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

Gav · 26/04/2019 at 15:40

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

    SC_Kev7 · 26/04/2019 at 15:46

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

      Gav · 26/04/2019 at 16:33

      Cheers Kev.

    Rick Grimes · 26/04/2019 at 15:56

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

Ja191 · 26/04/2019 at 16:31

do i loop collins with duursma or scrimshaw?

    Kym · 26/04/2019 at 16:52

    Duursma.

    redherringfc · 26/04/2019 at 16:57

    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_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:38

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

TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 17:13

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 · 26/04/2019 at 17:45

    Corbett early after this week maybe

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:54

    Answerth could be an option in the next few weeks.

Paddy Danger · 26/04/2019 at 17:16

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 · 26/04/2019 at 17:33

    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_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:35

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

BradleyTC99 · 26/04/2019 at 17:50

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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:11

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

Lekdog · 26/04/2019 at 17:58

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

Brn · 26/04/2019 at 17:58

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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:14

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

    Patch · 26/04/2019 at 19:21

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

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 19:31

    Do it brn

    DavidC · 27/04/2019 at 13:25

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

Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 17:59

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

    Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:02

    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_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:08

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:08

    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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:22

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 23:25

      66 whats your rank?

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:28

      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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:37

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

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:40

          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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:48

            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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:51

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

                Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 00:17

                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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:06

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_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:16

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

      Patch · 26/04/2019 at 19:22

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

        Gainsy · 26/04/2019 at 19:41

        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_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:44

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

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:44

        Love you Patch. 🙂

Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:18

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_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:32

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:42

      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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:45

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

      HallyMate · 26/04/2019 at 18:43

      The one thing Hawks is missing is a power forward that can take a mark, Clarko been letting him stew in the VFL to develop I reckon he will get a good run of games now, 10 score involvements last week says a lot.

        Maverick_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:49

        appreciate the responses guys. M.Lewis it is!

      Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 18:54

      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_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:59

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:22

        What did he get banned for?

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:36

          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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:51

            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 · 27/04/2019 at 09:08

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

                Terry · 27/04/2019 at 15:12

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

                Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:29

                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 · 27/04/2019 at 22:50

                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 · 27/04/2019 at 22:55

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

                    Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 23:25

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

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 18:58

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 18:34

Higgins out tonight big out

    neil demons delight · 26/04/2019 at 18:43

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

      Shake_n_bake · 26/04/2019 at 18:52

      Big out for norf that!

      Derek · 26/04/2019 at 18:52

      i keep looking at Rocky and thinking…. is he top 8? gee…… he is going to be close…..ish…..maybe

        neil demons delight · 26/04/2019 at 19:46

        me too but done .now he has to be a keeper.

          Derek · 26/04/2019 at 20:30

          I finally bit the bullet. Brought him in. Oh well.

            Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 06:49

            Did see that this morning

TelescopicCox · 26/04/2019 at 18:43

What move to make community?

B – Lloyd Crisp Williams Duursma Wilkie Hore (Burgess Lockhart)
M – Macrae Cripps Treloar Coniglio M.Crouch Walsh Constable (Gibbons Scott Setterfield)
R – Grundy Gawn (O’Brien)
F – Danger Heeney Darling Moore Drew Petreculle (Balta, Bines)

1. Darling to Kelly
2. Darling to Rocky
3. Darling to Fyfe
4. Darling to Sicily

Thanks for the tips this week!

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 18:52

    Fyfe

    Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 18:52

    Or Kelly, your fwd line sucks

      TelescopicCox · 26/04/2019 at 19:14

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

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 18:54

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:15

      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_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:19

        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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:01

    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_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:04

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

        Nice_Person · 26/04/2019 at 19:33

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

Brn · 26/04/2019 at 18:52

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

    Rick Grimes · 26/04/2019 at 23:39

    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 · 27/04/2019 at 00:31

      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 · 27/04/2019 at 08:59

      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 · 27/04/2019 at 00:24

    O'Brien

Brett · 26/04/2019 at 18:54

Duursma and drew to both ton tonight. Calling it now

    Saritz · 26/04/2019 at 19:01

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

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:04

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

        Saritz · 26/04/2019 at 19:07

        So we are doomed then :/

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:51

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

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/04/2019 at 19:48

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

      Brn · 26/04/2019 at 21:08

      Butters making his BE is the issue

Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 19:12

Can’t loophole, field duursma or scrimshaw?

Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 19:37

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.

TOPHAWK1 · 26/04/2019 at 19:44

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 · 26/04/2019 at 19:48

    No Jacobs either.

    Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 20:20

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

Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 19:54

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

    Gainsy · 26/04/2019 at 20:00

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

    Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 20:25

    Strangely enough I actually thought to grab him tonight as no rookies around. Only thing stopping me was Moore had already played so couldn’t swing him back for Clark. I saw a bit from him last week when Marshall was back. Wasn’t needed in the forward line. Could be an option next week……..maybe

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 20:28

    Interesting

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

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

    neil demons delight · 26/04/2019 at 20:15

    me too AB risky but why not

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 20:17

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

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 20:44

      Starting to slow down unfortunately

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 20:52

        Could still go 120 plus.

          AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 20:54

          not enough for VC 🙁

    silversovereign · 26/04/2019 at 20:29

    Same here AB. Scored 174 against norf in the jlt

COREYSC · 26/04/2019 at 20:20

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

One Touch Wonder · 26/04/2019 at 20:26

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

    silversovereign · 26/04/2019 at 20:28

    Got the vc on the pig too

      Rick Grimes · 26/04/2019 at 21:03

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

    silversovereign · 26/04/2019 at 22:34

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

    Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 22:37

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

    Bob · 27/04/2019 at 06:35

    Gee what a shark move that was

Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 20:40

Damn. Looks like Ziebell has gone to Rocky.😫

JugHead · 26/04/2019 at 20:49

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

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:01

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

Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 20:57

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

    Ben · 26/04/2019 at 21:04

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

      Brett · 26/04/2019 at 21:10

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

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:49

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

    COREYSC · 26/04/2019 at 21:39

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

Ben · 26/04/2019 at 21:00

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

    Rick Grimes · 26/04/2019 at 21:03

    Yep, gotta find a way to get em in.

Kewbie Bear · 26/04/2019 at 21:02

Glad I looped butters with Stack!

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:05

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

      Kewbie Bear · 26/04/2019 at 21:12

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

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:16

        Maybe to Hayes next week.

      JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 21:26

      I traded Butters to Stack last week.

JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 21:36

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

Nuggety · 26/04/2019 at 21:36

Jeez these port rookies can play…

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:41

    Some can…others are still on 53 and 48.

    Finnius · 27/04/2019 at 01:59

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

      DavidC · 27/04/2019 at 09:10

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

Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:40

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 · 26/04/2019 at 22:03

    Never knew booing was against the law.

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:06

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

        Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 22:36

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

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:40

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

            Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 22:41

            Hahaha no they did not!!

    Sixtybloody6 · 26/04/2019 at 22:54

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

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:59

      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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:24

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

Finnius · 26/04/2019 at 21:41

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

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 22:50

    Yeah. Need to get him.

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

      Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:52

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

        Derek · 26/04/2019 at 23:21

        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_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:25

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

    TelescopicCox · 27/04/2019 at 10:18

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

TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 21:46

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 · 26/04/2019 at 21:48

    Who else is on your bench.

      TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 21:51

      Burgess

        JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 21:56

        Clark to Laird then.

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 21:52

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 22:00

      Cheers Russty!

    Finnius · 26/04/2019 at 21:56

    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 · 26/04/2019 at 21:59

      Cheers Finn. Sound logic!

    silversovereign · 26/04/2019 at 22:32

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

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 22:37

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

AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 21:57

F*ck me rockliff is frustrating to watch

    AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 22:03

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

      JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 22:10

      So do I, VC Boak.

        Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:23

        You gonna take Boak's score John?

          JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 22:28

          My cut off is 125, so yes.

        AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 22:25

        Don't you start John

          JohnDJ59 · 26/04/2019 at 22:29

          Sorry AB, I couldn't pass that up.

            AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 22:31

            How do i angry react on intensedebate?

          Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:33

          Not too bad from Rocky AB, still makes you some money this week, and almost a ton.

            AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 22:37

            Yeah not the end of the world Russty, just would like him to push that 110+ consistently so i can justify his selection as a keeper.

              Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:38

              I reckon it'll come mate, might still need to keep building his fitness base.

                AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 23:05

                Fingers crossed

    Bells · 26/04/2019 at 22:08

    Did he have 60 SC points after 20 minutes – 30 since?
    He, all their rookies and Gray have sunk my season.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/04/2019 at 22:32

      He was on 48 at Qtr time, so very slow after that point

Bells · 26/04/2019 at 22:05

EFFING FMD ! Robbie Gray is trolling me now handing off that goal.
Rage trade imminent!

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 22:37

    Don't know what's happened to Robbie this year Bells, seems to be a fringe player now. He's only 31 too, not like he's an old fossil.

Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 22:19

Larkey could be a nice downgrade in a couple weeks!

    Sharkmove_King · 26/04/2019 at 23:08

    Larkey vs Corbett for a forward downgrade in 2 weeks time

TommyC99 · 26/04/2019 at 22:37

Is anyone not gonna take Grundys score? I think the smart thing to do is to take it but Cripps looks real ominous Sunday arvo

    Tommy · 26/04/2019 at 22:40

    I didn’t take a 130 and risked Fyfe a few weeks back, he got injured. Never get greedy!

Daniel · 26/04/2019 at 22:42

I had grundy as vc but to take his score I'd have to take my emergency score of 43 from Butters, should I do that or put the C on Neale or Cripps instead and play atkins on field?

    Derek · 26/04/2019 at 22:55

    Don’t take 43.

    I’ve got VC on Grundy and thinking about giving Cripps or Danger the C

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/04/2019 at 22:54

Made a trade just had a look at my team and for some reason it took the E off Duursma FFS!

Now gotta hope the 6 boys on the ground play this weekend. 🤞

Holty01 · 26/04/2019 at 23:37

Although Drew was very average tonight, can’t really complain when a rookie has averaged me 76 from his last 3 games. Nice money to be made as well.

    Russty_ · 26/04/2019 at 23:45

    Yeah Holty, between Duursma and Drew…73 each tonight…that'll do, and a lot would've had them on field too.

      Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 09:03

      Durs 84

TBone_9 · 27/04/2019 at 01:18

Hey guys, quick question. Since I had the emergency on Stack and put Scott on field to get his score over Butters as well as big Maxy’s VC score, can I throw an emergency on Atkins as well in the rare case one of my other midfielders has a late out? Or once I do that will I not get Stack’s score and it’ll automatically give me the lower of Stack and Atkins scores? Not well explained but any response is appreciated 🙂

    Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 01:22

    yeah TBone if you have two emergency's selected on your midfield bench you'll be given the lower score.

    DavidC · 27/04/2019 at 09:22

    Atkins plays the last game, just leave the E off until just before the game and plonk it on if needed at that stage.

      TBone_9 · 27/04/2019 at 10:25

      Cheers Maverick and David for the responses. Him playing last game makes it a lot easier

    RoyWetard · 27/04/2019 at 10:26

    Don't put E on Atkins. If a player is a late out just put Atkins on field for them.

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 01:19

Pulled the trigger on Scrimshaw to Sicily just now, feels like this will be around the cheapest ill get him for a while. i was considering waiting until next week but the sooner the better really, the most i lost out on is 10k

    JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 01:36

    I feel you have gone a bit early on that one AB, Scrimshaw still has a good three weeks of making cash for us. Even If you really wanted Sicily that bad, you still could have waited a week like you had planned.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 12:18

      Fair enough, i just think the potential extra cash isn't worth losing the potential extra points.

    Derek · 27/04/2019 at 11:59

    Scrimshaw to Laird is looking like my trade next week.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 12:19

      I started with Laird Derek, wish i went with Lloyd instead as i was considering, i would've been pretty happy picking up Laird as my first upgrade for 520k

Josh · 27/04/2019 at 01:38

Sicily or Hurn? money is not an issue

    JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 01:43

    Hurn is going to be my first upgrade in defence, I wish I had the cash to do it sooner rather than later.

    TelescopicCox · 27/04/2019 at 10:18

    Hurn. Looking ultra consistent

Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 01:57

is houli the real deal at approx 430-450k? or should i be spending that extra 100k on someone like laird sic hurn etc..

    neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 07:43

    at best a D6 like Sheppard

    dontblushbaby · 27/04/2019 at 07:45

    Too many hammy issues for an ageing player imo, but if can stay on the field he is value with Short injured, however you need to ask is he in the top 8 defenders ?

    DavidC · 27/04/2019 at 09:38

    He's a bit injury prone these days.

    silversovereign · 27/04/2019 at 09:59

    The latter

ROB14 · 27/04/2019 at 06:26

Put the big C on Neale, Fyfe or Cripps!? Put the VC on Rocky which didn't work out to well!

    dontblushbaby · 27/04/2019 at 07:41

    Neale fro me ROB

      ROB14 · 27/04/2019 at 08:22

      Do you think Touk Miller will affect him?

        Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 08:54

        You got an answer mate, end of the day it's your call

          ROB14 · 27/04/2019 at 09:12

          I know that…. Mate, just curious what others think

            Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 10:05

            The tag will nearly always go to Zorko.

              ROB14 · 27/04/2019 at 10:15

              Yeah those 2 have history, zorko more damaging when he is off the leash

                Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 10:51

                Just don't understand the question you already have an answer to?

                  Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:33

                  Is anyone else allowed to comment or do you think you're the comment police now?…just shut up and let people answer if they want to, it has nothing to do with you.

                    Mick · 28/04/2019 at 09:25

                    Its 66 or Wow from last year Rust, same attitude anyway

            Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:49

            He's not your mate ROB…believe me, he's not anyones mate…except 66.

              ROB14 · 28/04/2019 at 06:09

              Cheers Rusty!

      neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 08:22

      Me too DBB but toss of the coin any of them

        Brett · 27/04/2019 at 11:00

        Miller has already said in interviews he is looking forward to matching zorko again because he thinks he has a psychological edge over him. Happy days for vc neale i reckon

Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 07:28

Only 3 games in but geez every team you come up against in your leagues are a head scratcher which way they are going to go!

    neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 08:20

    As the resident Shake and Bake king, is getting Westhoff back and pocketing 180k for the 2nd best forward 2018 with a great bye and a good game last night, worthy ? At worst a great F7 DPP

      Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 10:08

      If no other rookies pop their heads up, it maybe a move some will have to do.

      Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 10:09

      I would be trying to get your best 22 1st. If you think they are are a fallen premo or someone that’s bargain priced and will be at least top 10 by seasons end go for it. Some players start off slow or positional changes that you see the also come home strong. I wouldn’t be topping up on someone yet that you would hope to fill say m7 m8. Only get them in if you really believe they will be a m7 or m8.Build your coins like l have this week target only top 8 to 10 players. Im trying to build my war chest and only when l think its right to say pick up Fyfe who will come down again this week Whitfield in a couple of weeks hopefully and Neale in a couple of weeks. This is the only time l will be making a trade.

      Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 10:27

      I would be trying to get your best 22 1st!! If you think they are are a fallen premo or someone that you think will be in your top 8-10 in that position by seasons end go for it.

      Saritz · 27/04/2019 at 08:37

      Hopefully it’s fixed soon, I need to loop Duusma’s score with Burgess!

    Do you have 2 teams wtf? Mine seems to be working ok.

    BundyBear · 27/04/2019 at 12:50

    I had this problem last night. I sent them an email and they fixed it this morning. Very frustrating it was.

neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 07:41

Choosing the final M7 / 8 may be a matter of choosing someone from 7 to 12. The top 6 pick themselves but is Treloar any better than a walsh Libba or Rocky Really S C history is littered with M 9's that were M8 at the pointy end Kelly and Motlop for instance. What's the points differential between previous M8 's and 10 anyone Derek will know but i bet it's insignificant especially at this early stage.I have Libba Walsh and Rocky and though one will become Fyfe I am happy to go with two but which two? NDD

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 07:55

    Who’s the top 6 that pick themselves?

      Sharkmove_King · 27/04/2019 at 08:12

      I'll have a guess. Neale, Cripps, Macrae, Fyfe…I'm stuck. Oliver maybe.

      Backline is the most predictable. Lloyd, Sicily, Laird, Whitfield, Hurn top 5

        Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 08:34

        lots of good options in the backline which is scary considering i only have lloyd and laird looking like the only affordable one

        redherringfc · 27/04/2019 at 09:19

        Hopefully Oliver and Crouch round out the 6.

        Forward line would be easy if 5 of them didn’t all play for Geelong:

        Danger, Hawkins, Kelly, Menegola, Dahlhaus and Heeney. 😉

          JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 12:33

          I'd have Boak in there and Billings is putting his hand up.

            redherringfc · 27/04/2019 at 13:22

            I was joking, but if those 5 were spread across a few teams then they could all be top 6, although Dahlhaus would be questionable.

            I’ll probably be taking 3 of them into the byes, which is a bit of a concern.

              JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 13:35

              I like Danger, who everybody should have, Kelly and Heeney. I'm happy with my six at the moment, Danger, Boak, Billings, Kelly, Dunkley, Worpel. If I end up getting Heeney in it would be for Dunkley, but only after I upgrade my other lines.

                redherringfc · 27/04/2019 at 15:09

                I’m getting Kelly next week and then Hawkins asap, probably the week after. My forwards are so weak at the moment.

                Hawkins is going to be a top 6 player, but don’t recall anyone mentioning him on this site. I might have to ride a few 70’s (hopefully that’s as low as he goes) but there’ll be some massive ones to go with it.

                  JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 15:14

                  Hawkins is a top fwd, but most people stay away due to him being a key position player.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/04/2019 at 09:00

    Walsh M8 at the moment

    He may tire but he is covering the most distance each game so super fit, gr8 endurance and may just go the distance.

    Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 10:46

    the big question is, what does everyone consider a top 8 mid to be? Is it the best average, most points? I believe in none of this, I believe in what they actually average once you bring them into your team.
    For example, last year Cogs was a great pick but only if you started with him. If you bought him in about rd6, he was an awful pick.
    Another example is if you pick Neale now. If he averages 105 for the rest of the season, do you consider him being a top 8 for you because his season average ends up being 114?
    In the end, this is simply another perspective of how someone looks at a top 8 midfielder.

      Derek · 27/04/2019 at 11:52

      The biggest difference will be games missed. Averages won’t mean anything if they miss 2+ games.

      How is Fyfe’s elbow?

        Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 12:19

        thats Why I didn’t start him. It was between him and Neale. I went with durability and ended up getting much more then expected for the beginning of the season

      Sharkmove_King · 27/04/2019 at 15:36

      The way you view it is absolutely correct

      neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 17:22

      Jeez you guys talk sense. So obvious .110 would do me so fYfe's in but then as Derek says we must factor in games missed .Maybe that's what Derek was alluding to when he was thinking of picking Rocky. Taking into account both Hotly and Derek's comment I wish I didn't pick him-will miss games and wont average 110 from here on Hope I am wrong Thanks guys

neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 08:15

Macrae Cripps Oliver Fyfe Neale MCrouch then Bont Treloar Libba Walsh Rocky Zerrett only my take ,any of those last six is worthy

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 08:33

    i think there is a gap between top 6 and the rest but i personally would put crouch with the likes of bont treloar and merret and have kelly in the top 6 instead

      neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 09:19

      my apologies knew i missed one and Kelly is surely better than zerrett

        Derek · 27/04/2019 at 11:47

        Sloane is close to that group

    s c tragic · 27/04/2019 at 09:19

      s c tragic · 27/04/2019 at 09:20

      @ wtf

    Derek · 27/04/2019 at 11:45

    How is Fyfe’s elbow? The only reason I didn’t start with Fyfe was his elbow problems. Still a long way to go.

redherringfc · 27/04/2019 at 09:10

Since Butters stank it up, Atkins or Gibbons?

Going on last week, I have to go Gibbons don’t I?

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 12:13

    I’d go gibbons because I don’t think Atkins has the ceiling to punish you with a ton on the bench. That being said bringing in curnow for polson means we are very tall in the forward line so gibbons might be back in the forward line

BradleyTC99 · 27/04/2019 at 09:33

So i can take Grundys score but it would mean i cant loop Parker and Petrucelle, so part of me actually doesnt want to take Grundys score and whack it on Cripps. Thoughts community?

    Derek · 27/04/2019 at 11:42

    You can at least have a look at Parker’s score before you decide

Hi Community, thoughts on taking Grundy's 134 as VC? My normal cut off is 135 and he scored 134. Do I stick to my standards and contemplate Neale, Cripps or Danger or am I being greedy by not accepting a solid 134? None of my opponents have Grundy as VC and I am stumped as to which way to go? Thoughts…?

    Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 10:49

    Stick to your standard pman. But imo, 135 is very high.

    Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 11:01

    It's your cut off, if you have a 135 cut off then 134 isn't enough

    KSinny · 27/04/2019 at 11:46

    If your cutoff is 135 then 134 is fine, if someone scores 150 your only getting 16 more points bit if they get a 90 odd your missing out on 40 odd points.

      JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 12:50

      What's the point of having a cut off score if you don't stick to it, his main problem is it's too high a score, he would be better dropping it to at least 130, then he wouldn't have to think about it.

    JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 12:45

    If your cut off is 135 then you can't take it, that's why you have a cut off score, that said, mine is 125, so I don't have your type of problem, maybe you should think about dropping it to 130 instead, since having it at 135 is going to keep bringing up these type of problems for you.

    SC_Donkey · 27/04/2019 at 13:36

    My cut off is 135+, realisticly 130-135+ is what really accept from my VC.

      Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 14:58

      So your cut off is actually 130? Lol
      I don't understand this cut off talk, and then you say you take lower?

        SC_Donkey · 27/04/2019 at 15:05

        130-135 doesn't really mean I'd take 130, let's say 135 is my cut off. If my VC scores 133 or 134 then I would highly consider take that score. If the VC scores 131 or 132 maybe I'll take it depends on who I have the C on or who my C is versing.

        Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:23

        It' pretty easy to understand, why do you care?…you're the best player Supercoach has ever seen…according to you.
        "respect the greatness"

    Pman · 27/04/2019 at 18:37

    Appreciate the feedback fella's and agree by cut off is probably to high and will reset it to 130 moving forward. A few of my opponents have Fyfe as VC tonight so I'll sit tight and see how he goes and will still have option of taking Grundy's 134 or rolling the dice on Cripps or Danger tomorrow. If Fyfe is quiet tonight then I'll 100% lock in Grundy's 134.

TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 10:37

Is anyone elses supercoach down/not working? I cant get onto the website or the app. It better start working before the crows game or imma be angry

    BrownlowBoy · 27/04/2019 at 10:43

    Think it's down for a lot of people if not everyone.

    Sixtybloody6 · 27/04/2019 at 10:45

    Na I'm pretty sure anyone outside 5k can't access it. VIP access for genuine superstars of SC.

      Nice_Person · 27/04/2019 at 10:48

      Yeah I'm in too

      BrownlowBoy · 27/04/2019 at 10:52

      This bloke ^^^

      Bob · 27/04/2019 at 11:15

      SB6 how old are you, approaching 9 yrs old?

        Bob · 27/04/2019 at 12:32

        Teenager then?

          Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:31

          Must've been a flog free period for those 2 to still have access Bob.
          I'd say probably more like 12 years old, with the apparent mental capacity.

    Beezneez · 27/04/2019 at 12:51

    Mine's been okay. Have you tried logging out and signing in again or powering off or restarting your phone and try again. Just a thought.

BrownlowBoy · 27/04/2019 at 11:08

Supercoach is up and running again.

BrownlowBoy · 27/04/2019 at 11:17

Can't argue with stats mate. He's just telling you how it is, you don't have to follow it.

    Dave · 27/04/2019 at 12:29

    You can't predict the future but you can project how it will be with stats,theories, and models.

    Theres a reason you put the C on one of the top 6 players every week and that is history

Dave · 27/04/2019 at 11:21

Couldn't help myself community. I've messed up. Traded clark to answerth and he hasn't even played a game. Needed the cash too bad.

    Dave · 27/04/2019 at 12:26

    At worst its the waste of 1 trade. Not season ending

      Dave · 27/04/2019 at 14:57

      What was the deleted comment?

        Dave · 27/04/2019 at 15:04

        Looking at a 60+ points atm. Has done some good things. Not too fussed

          Dave · 27/04/2019 at 15:07

          On a different note, its hard to see a legend like hodge play so bad. Having his worst sc year ever and is way past it

    Beezneez · 27/04/2019 at 12:55

    From all reports Answerth is supposed to be a good player so might work out okay.

      Dave · 27/04/2019 at 13:03

      Bloody hope so. My fwd line needs fixing too badly. At worst he can swap to the mid bench

Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 13:30

Go Neale……. That is all.

    Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 13:54

    2 possies 1 free against on 8 might go huge

      Yoda · 27/04/2019 at 16:28

      Right you were, huge he went

        Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 17:06

        Even 4 touches in the 2nd 3 were handballs still got 26 for the qtr

Training Cray · 27/04/2019 at 13:47

So I'm in the unfortunate position of having Burgess and Balta wasting away on my bench. Is it worth trading them or is it just a waste of a precious trade considering how little cash they've generated?

    Lekdog · 27/04/2019 at 14:55

    Trade em when you have a decent option to go to

    Sharkmove_King · 27/04/2019 at 14:57

    There's no right answer to that as theirs very many different factors at play so everyone's different. For example is you going for rank/flag? How many trades have you used? etc.

    Personally, I hang on to them unless 2 things happen. I'm facing a donut, or something irresistible comes along to downgrade to.

    Otherwise I'd cash them in at byes if I look.like going in short 1 week.

    Training Cray · 27/04/2019 at 15:27

    Cheers for the advice guys! This week ive used Burgess as a loophole for Duursmas 85 and Balta at least beat his B/E so it's not all doom and gloom I guess! Will start looking for a must have rookie to move them on for.

BlueBaggerJosh · 27/04/2019 at 14:03

Big night last night and woke up late to trade Collins to Brodie Smith bloody hell

    Brn · 27/04/2019 at 15:02

    Big gamble but only averaging 2 points more than laird and has a very low BE. There are worse picks

      Dave · 27/04/2019 at 15:02

      Less than laird*

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:27

    That sleep probably saved you, if you didn’t start Brodie Smith I don’t know why you would trade him in now.

Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 14:57

Note to non Neale owners. Get him in quick smart. 13 touches at 50% 9 handballs. And on 54 at half time.

    Dave · 27/04/2019 at 15:09

    Few frees against too. Surprised

      Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 15:18

      Only 4 touches in the 2nd 3 of those handballs still got 25. And when a Cripps or Oliver don’t score we say only handballs

    TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 15:28

    60 point quarter. Jeez Not having him hurts

Brn · 27/04/2019 at 15:00

Needing a big second half from vc neale. Been disappointing and lucky in sc

Yeahnah · 27/04/2019 at 15:09

Rowan Marshall out. Dodged a bullet there

    gator59 · 27/04/2019 at 15:14

    Donut here

      johnno2908 · 27/04/2019 at 15:38

      Reckon Longer will have a good game and keep his spot too. Maybe just cut my losses and trade him to Kelly.

      Swans2012 · 27/04/2019 at 16:22

      And here, donut that is

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 15:56

    Silly to bring him in

      neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 16:47

      Longer 's a dud ask RUSSTY or Gator who know the club . Could be wrong but I reckon both rate Marshall more, however to win the flag they need to recruit a grundy/ gawn type and Marshall sits as a big Cox type My opinion only

JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 15:17

I know Neil has touched on this, but I would like to know who people are looking at to have as their final top eight midfielders. I currently have Cripps, M.Crouch, Cogs, Walsh. Looking at getting in Neale, Bont, Fyfe, Oliver.

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:11

    Walsh is not a top 8 mid. Surprising you don’t mention macrae, he’s just about a lock. Josh kelly in there somewhere too

      JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 16:16

      Depending on how I go with my other lines, Walsh might have to end up my M8, not sold on Macrae for what we have to pay for him, going with Bont instead.

      neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 16:42

      I agree Walsh shouldn't be but it depends on those between M6 and M11. I wouldn't be dismissing him yet remember Oliver 2 years back. just dont know about Cogs position in the mix

    BoltonsBlues · 27/04/2019 at 17:45

    No reason why Walsh couldnt sit at M8 all year, average of just under 100 and you can tell why there was such a hype around him, kids a jet

      Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 18:35

      History is a pretty good reason. Name 1 other 18 year old that has averaged 100 for a full season. Happy to eat my words but he will get tired at some point, they always do!

Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 15:44

A 62 point quarter for Neale. Wow

    hip · 27/04/2019 at 15:57

    Sc-WOW

      Browncow · 27/04/2019 at 16:38

      You know you have missed a player when you keep an eye on their score even though not in your team.

Ja191 · 27/04/2019 at 15:58

I get he's been influential but like neale jumps more than the guy who actually kicks the goal

    Billygoat · 27/04/2019 at 16:05

    He is a gun

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:13

    He’s a bit like Tom Mitchell just accumulates!

Frank · 27/04/2019 at 16:01

I know it’s not sc, but who wins today saints or crows? Can’t decide!

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 16:04

    crows

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:15

    Flip a coin

    TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 16:19

    Ive gone the crows.

Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:14

Answerth see you in 2 weeks!

Benjiherb · 27/04/2019 at 16:21

Thinking zorko is the worst player Captain in the comp.
Used to be a gun now he doesn't know where the footy is .

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 16:31

    He was Brisbane’s main man a few years back, he’s not now. Spends a lot of time forward! Still a much better captain than Tex.

JEL · 27/04/2019 at 16:27

Is this the year of the Rich?
Another ton…. will he be a top 6 defender at the end of the year?

    Browncow · 27/04/2019 at 16:36

    He might go close JEL. Lek will be clearing his voice for the pod now.

      JEL · 27/04/2019 at 16:56

      I've still got scars from a few seasons ago, not sure if I can go there again.

        Derek · 27/04/2019 at 17:52

        Same here. I’ve already got Brodie Smith, couldn’t get Rich as well. I’d be forced to get Shaw then.

        He is taking all of Witherdens points though

          hedski · 27/04/2019 at 18:04

          Ha ha, i remember at the start of the season you saying if we pick Brodie we might as well get Rich..
          Maybe we should have?

        Browncow · 27/04/2019 at 17:56

        Neither can I. Still eventually hoping for the dream defence with Lloyd, Whitfield, Hurn, Laird and Sicily (stuck with Williams like most of us).

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 16:39

Looking at the stats, i don't know how Neale's game warranted 140+ points. I didn't watch the game so he must have had a huge impact to explain that inflated of a score. Can anyone who watched confirm how good his impact was?

    Benjiherb · 27/04/2019 at 17:10

    3 assists

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 17:12

    was big in the third when game was there to be won

    Yeahnah · 27/04/2019 at 17:46

    broke it open in the third. didn't notice him for the rest of the game, not sure how he was on 55 odd at half time

    Derek · 27/04/2019 at 17:50

    He just keeps getting it done.

    There are 2 types of people in this world. Those who have Neale and those who don’t.

    There is a sub-set, for which I belong, those who always had him in their pre-season team but moved him out after JLT.

      Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 17:53

      I belong to the one that don’t have neale and for some strange reason never really considered him in the preseason

      BoltonsBlues · 27/04/2019 at 17:55

      Dont know if you're a betting man Derek, smacked him for the Brownlow at $41-1, stand to win a small fortune (25k all up nearly) if he takes home Charlie
      Was first picked, locked and loaded into the middle

      AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 18:01

      I belong to that subset as well Derek, flicked him for Clarry once i saw that he was over his shoulder surgery.

      JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 18:12

      He was in and out of my team pre-season, but was one of two to go from my mids when I decided I needed to improve my fwd line.

      TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 19:15

      I am also one of those people. I swapped him out for Macrae after i was able to start scrimshaw instead of Collins

    Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 17:59

    I’m a Neale owner so very happy. But tend to agree he scored probably 15-20 more then he deserved. He ended being probably the most influential player on field however so if there is any additional points needing to be handed out, it tends to go to the players who influence the contest.

      Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 19:05

      I think CD might have him in a few teams. Seems to get points for breathing. Thankfully I own him. He and Cripps never left my side preseason.

    Shake_n_bake · 27/04/2019 at 19:24

    Pendles 38 possies at 87%! 25 kicks 13 handball 7 marks 7 tackles. Neale 27 at 74% 11 kicks 16 handball 4 marks 6 tackles. Both 14 contested.

    COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 21:41

    Brisbane kicked 4 goals in 4mins in the third quarter Neale got three center clearances two goal assists and a goal for himself for good measure!
    That broke the game open and was basically where the match was won. I think that's why his score was inflated so much at the end because of his influence on the game when the match was on the line at 44-44 just after half time.

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 16:40

Also looks like Sloane is being tagged by Steele, love it.

KSinny · 27/04/2019 at 17:07

Sloane you spud

    KSinny · 27/04/2019 at 17:42

    36 point 2nd quarter I'm happy with

Benjiherb · 27/04/2019 at 17:10

Steven on 49 qtr time won't score past 100 full time ..

    redherringfc · 27/04/2019 at 18:02

    he’s only just pipped 50 at ht.

ThatsGoldJerry · 27/04/2019 at 17:28

Last week I traded in R Marshall for a huge 50 pts and now he is a late out…Is the bloke any good or not ??

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 17:43

    Going to be a good player, but probably not a good pick this year

neil demons delight · 27/04/2019 at 17:36

Playing Dont Blush Baby in Guns n Rookies We are both on exactly 1000 and forcast for me is 2358 and DBB is 2360 Coincidence , wonder who will prevail

Dave · 27/04/2019 at 17:46

Brodie smith you gun. Anything 90+ from you and im looking good. Neale vc dam good. Looking at 2400+ atm

    Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 17:55

    That will be a good score.

    Chompers · 27/04/2019 at 18:32

    Thanks for jinxing smith mate! Best off leaving those comments until after the game has finished

      Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 19:12

      He scored 105?

        Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:22

        Some peeps are a bit superstitious.

s c tragic · 27/04/2019 at 18:14

Looks like Hately has a gig after all. So if your brought him in you can breath out.

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 18:17

    It’s says buntine is in for David not Hately

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 18:30

    Lol hately still not playing

      s c tragic · 27/04/2019 at 19:20

      Yep, fanfooty listed Hately initially then changed it to Buntine. Sorry

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/04/2019 at 18:19

Q for 2mrw.

As butters didnt do me any favours as the mid E which two on ground do we think?

1. Aikins/Meirs
2. Gibbons/Meirs
3. Aikins/petruculli
4. Gibbons/Petruculli
4. Meirs/Petruculli?

Based on season so far and how they have scored thinking 5 but if Gibbo plays mids again…??

    Chompers · 27/04/2019 at 18:37

    I’d hate to be your English teacher! I’d go number 2.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/04/2019 at 19:18

      Eye try but engliss not language first. 🤣

        Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:21

        I'yd go Meers and putridcooli Treega 😉

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 18:43

    I like 5 personally don’t know if gibbons will play midfield again considering curnow is in for polson who is a small forward

Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 18:19

Jeez Parker has been good today

    COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 19:08

    Unfortunately didn’t get the Supercoach points he deserved I reckon only 61 points and he kicked 3 goals took 2 huge hangers too

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 19:12

    Yeah he also gave away quite a few free kicks and had some silly turnovers

hedski · 27/04/2019 at 18:34

Probably one of the best games to watch so far this season.
Tipped the Crows but this was the hardest game to split for mine.
God Parker is exciting to watch.

    COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 19:11

    Ripper game I really enjoyed it too mate, i’d Enjoy big win from the cats more tomorrow night!😉

      hedski · 27/04/2019 at 19:18

      👍🍻👍🍻😸

COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 19:04

Brad Crouch unlikely I think 84SC points with 30 touches and 11 clearances

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 19:08

    Unlikely for what

      COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 19:09

      unlucky haha

Swans2012 · 27/04/2019 at 19:07

Laird in = a win, Marshall out = 🍩. Can’t catch a break this year…..

    Swans2012 · 27/04/2019 at 19:34

    And now franklin for a double donut 🙁🔫

    JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 20:30

    How can you have a donut, who is on your bench.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 20:35

      Might be holding setterfield and swung bines forward to get o'brien in

      Swans2012 · 27/04/2019 at 20:39

      Two donuts not one, had the e on Moore in case he spudded it up, when he didn’t put Setterfield on to take his score, drew in second forward bench spot so by the time there was two late outs today he had already played so no one to switch them with, painful…..

        JohnDJ59 · 27/04/2019 at 22:30

        I see, so the only way you could have avoided even just one donut would have been having Drew on field. That is bad luck having that happen Swan. I did have Setterfield in the mids, but I traded him out this weekend for Ross.

          Swans2012 · 27/04/2019 at 23:17

          Yep just plain bad luck, for me it was Parker to Ross via sett this week (hence he’s marooned in my forward line) and Collins to laird which was at least good ….

    DavidC · 28/04/2019 at 07:57

    Marshall was always going to burn a few, unlucky with the late out though.

Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 19:08

Happy with my first rookie upgrade. R Laird is back!

    Jester · 27/04/2019 at 19:21

    Good trade Rick. With Milera out, can see this type of output from here on in. Would have got him at a good price too.

      DavidC · 28/04/2019 at 07:58

      And when Milera comes back, what then?

        Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 09:14

        He's a jet, was still averaging 95. It had been 5 games ffs

          Tim · 28/04/2019 at 09:22

          Calm down 66 Wow

Jester · 27/04/2019 at 19:12

Should I take Parkers 61 or field Petruccelle(58.8 avg)? Can't see Petrol kicking 5 against cats, although 65-70 usually my rookie loophole cutoff score.

    hedski · 27/04/2019 at 19:20

    Same question here.
    Think I'll take it.
    Go cats

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 19:23

    Smart decision is to take it but think I might risk it because Im down in my main matchup this week

    COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 20:59

    Geelong defend very well I think Petruccelle will struggle tomorrow

TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 19:16

So are we taking Pakers 60 odd over Petrucelle?

    Sam_01 · 27/04/2019 at 19:23

    Yep I will be

    COREYSC · 27/04/2019 at 20:59

    I will take his score

    Derek · 27/04/2019 at 21:34

    Yep

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:40

    It was over Balta for me so yeah.

    silversovereign · 27/04/2019 at 22:54

    Yeah mate

Sam_01 · 27/04/2019 at 19:23

I wish Steele would hurry up and throw out an absolute dud score so I can justify trading him, blokes killing me

      Phew

Lazza · 27/04/2019 at 19:39

Take Parker’s 63 or put Typo Miers on field ?

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 20:45

    63 ain't bad for a rookie Lazza, Miers has been good though, maybe flip a coin.

      Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 00:19

      Or I could take Parker’s 63, bring Miers on field and move out Petrucelle.
      So it’s;
      1. 63 plus Meirs
      2. 63 plus Petrucelle
      3. Miers and Petrucelle and dice the 63.

        JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 02:39

        Option 1

James · 27/04/2019 at 19:53

Been a pretty good year so far however trading Zac Williams to Tom Stewart last week starting to look like a really bad trade. Also as a Richmond fan i did not think that Liam Baker had this sort of form in him!!

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/04/2019 at 19:57

Cogs smashing it.

    TommyC99 · 27/04/2019 at 20:00

    AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 20:19

    Of course my opp in the cash league has him

      AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 20:34

      Slowed down a bit in the second quarter, thank god

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 20:44

    He was smashing it, will probs still ton up though mate.

BoltonsBlues · 27/04/2019 at 20:23

Whitfield struggling with a bad corked thigh, I like this, I like this a lot

    AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 20:34

    As am i, one more poor score after this and his price is coming way down

    silly · 27/04/2019 at 20:39

    This score alone and he drops heaps, bit harsh to celebrate injury though

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 20:42

    Not good for his owners, good for those of us dumbasses who didn't start with him

    Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 20:50

    Bit yuck to be glad a player got injured.

    Chompers · 27/04/2019 at 20:51

    I like Carlton being useless, I like this a lot!

    BoltonsBlues · 27/04/2019 at 21:26

    It’s a corked thigh, the bloke isn’t going to die from it, I bet you flogs are against booing aswell, snowflakes

Frank · 27/04/2019 at 20:44

Whitfield it’s just a corky, do something!!!

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 20:46

    Corkie's can be pretty bad Frank, can make players miss games, renders the muscle useless if it's a heavy one.

      Frank · 27/04/2019 at 20:50

      He can miss next week that’s okay, my supercoach score this week is more important than the giants 😉 the one week none of my opponents have him!!

        Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 21:20

        That's unlucky. Pretty much every serious SCer has him.

          AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 22:08

          That's not true necessarily, if you didn't start with him then the only way to get him in so far would have been a sideways trade.

          Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:12

          I'll seriously be looking at him in the next few weeks 🙂

Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:04

How good is ROB?…perfect interim Ruckman or bench cash cow..super consistent with his scoring so far.
I'm surprised everyone didn't bring him in in his bubble week.

    Pranav · 27/04/2019 at 21:17

    I think some people would of held Setterfield and it’s tough to justify 2 donuts in the forward line for a player that doesn’t give on field points

      Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 21:19

      I'm running him at r2. Enjoying those onfield points.

    Corey · 27/04/2019 at 21:36

    I opted to hold Setterfield, one more trade in my pocket but missing some very good cash generation

    Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:47

    I dropped goldy to make ROB R2 this week russty.
    I expect him too lose 10-15 pts on goldy most weeks but the 3-4 premium upgrades ill grab with my cash will far outweigh that and come byes or jacobs return i'll grab grundy. alot of risk but if it comes off i'm laughing.

      Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:51

      Bold move Mav, I respect that…he looks like Jacobs 10 years ago, maybe he'll even keep the old boy out. Will only get better with more experience.

        Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:55

        yep i am really hoping he can hold off jacobs for #1 spot but very unlikely.
        i have 800k in my bank waiting to be used in the next 2-3 weeks. plus what ever cash i can grab from my fat cows..
        licking my lips

          Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:59

          I bet you are, should translate to around 100 extra points a week when you bring in the rolled gold premos, don't listen to any of those naysayers saying you should've started with Gawn and Grundy, good for them but some are just salty about it, mostly those 2 flogs who were polluting this place last night.

            BoltonsBlues · 27/04/2019 at 22:07

            Getting ROB into R2 was the move to make unless you started Gawn and Grundy, 800k in the bank is 3 rookies up to premos

            Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 22:07

            True dat. More than one way to skin a cat. Not that i'd do that to old Salem puss puss.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/04/2019 at 22:59

    Not sure where that puts me?
    Started Grawndy
    Kept setters (Good dpp loop with coin still to make)
    And traded parker to rob?

      Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 23:05

      Just puts you in a position with a nice coffer on the bench Trigga for when you're ready to spend it, Ideally, that would've been the thing to do whether you started with the 2 g's or not.
      It's guaranteed rookie maturation/ appreciation to the max. The ideal situation.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 02:35

    Brought him in on the bubble Russty, straight to R2, he can stay there till round nine, by then Grundy should have bottomed in price and I will then have the Grundy/Gawn ruck combo.

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 07:47

      So Grundy will have dropped 50k?

        JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 13:32

        Thinking about 60k, but not too concerned since round nine was always my target round for getting him in. It was either him or Cripps in my team at the start and I chose Cripps, who was cheaper. As its worked out it was the right call since I was going to have to upgrade to whoever I didn't get in and Cripps has gone up in price and is averaging more and Grundy will be cheaper than his starting price.

        JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 13:42

        Not sure it matters how much he will have dropped, I was always planning on getting him in around the 7 to 9 round and O'Brien will have made enough for me by round nine.

    TelescopicCox · 28/04/2019 at 10:19

    Very happy with ROB. Brought him in for Butters by moving Bines to F8. Will aim to offload him to a premo FWD around the byes

Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 21:18

Libba, Bont, Macrae…what's happening?…gonna be some price changes soon.

    Rick Grimes · 27/04/2019 at 21:28

    Rookies more consistent then premos last couple of rounds. The world is upside down. Cats chase does, hamburgers eat people.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 22:10

    only at 54% DE and also only has 8 CP, which would've helped

    Russty_ · 27/04/2019 at 22:11

    Didn't do a lot in the 2nd and 3rd quarters I think Rick, was looking like a monster score after quarter 1 though.

    Type in the players name in the "use a filter" section, click on his name and then click on the "salary prediction" tab, the rest is pretty self-explanatory. It can be a couple of K off but its pretty accurate

        Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 12:47

        Let’s not get carried away Neil… the Cats beat the Pies in R1 … R1 is rarely a measure of the year ahead… they’ve beaten the bottom team, and 3 others outside the 8… I think the Cats were beaten by one of this year’s grand finalists in R4 at the Cattery.. be interesting to see how they go against West Coast at home … the Cats should win… if they don’t I think their Premiership chances are questionable.

          redherringfc · 28/04/2019 at 15:03

          They’re my tip for premiers also. Am I getting carried away, as well? It’s my opinion, would you rather if I went with someone else’s?

          How about that lovely Eddie McGuire?

            Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 15:57

            Yes.. No… 🙂

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/04/2019 at 22:53

Danger or Cripps for captain this week fellas? I may as well do a coinflip at this stage.

Danger loves playing at Kardinia Park but im worried he'll get played forward (like last round) and/or tagged by hutchings, although i think Kelly will be who hutchings lines up on at the first bounce.

Cripps doesn't have an awesome average against Hawthorn, although he's in some good form and as far as i'm aware hawthorn don't tag (Daniel Howe??)

Gut is going Danger atm, who's everyone else going with?

    Tommy · 27/04/2019 at 23:02

    Cripps.

    silversovereign · 27/04/2019 at 23:29

    I’m going Cripps. Hoping he is due for a better week after 110 last week.

      Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 23:31

      I'm going cripps i wont take the risk of hutchings spending time on danger at any point.

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 08:34

    I would go Cripps as he is the safer option. Always a risk they put Danger forward

silly · 27/04/2019 at 23:03

    silversovereign · 27/04/2019 at 23:28

    Holty01 · 27/04/2019 at 23:18

    I recon he will drop about 80k in the next 3 weeks

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 07:44

      Surely its more than that

        Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 08:38

        Either way I’ll be jumping on.

    Ja191 · 28/04/2019 at 07:53

    If he scores two 100s next two game he’ll be 499k with a 91 break even

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 09:13

      Yummy

Derek · 27/04/2019 at 23:24

It feels like one step forward and two steps back this weeks.

Heading for average again

At least I know I’ll be getting Laird in next week, would have liked if he didn’t get his BE this week, but I’m still ok, glad I kept a bit in the war chest.

    Maverick_ · 27/04/2019 at 23:36

    Fyfe, Laird & Whitfield all on my watch list over the next 2-3 weeks Derek should all be a nice price.

    silversovereign · 27/04/2019 at 23:40

    I seem to get around 2250 every week and this week looks to be the same. Will bring in Fyfe next week or the week after.

      Derek · 28/04/2019 at 10:31

      Blakely got through a game in the reserves yesterday, he will be back next week. See how he fits into the team. I’m guessing Walters will go forward.

dontblushbaby · 28/04/2019 at 09:18

Time to move libba on?

    TelescopicCox · 28/04/2019 at 10:17

    If you can get him to an Uber premo then yes, otherwise hold. Macrae and Libba both down. They should bounce back

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 10:26

    I think he will be like Williams. 1 bad game and people get scared and jump off the bandwagon only to have him backup with a few good scores. I’d hold.

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 11:11

      Nah more so that he was a stepping stone and this is the first week he's lost cash

    Sam_01 · 28/04/2019 at 11:21

    I’d be holding libba mate both he and macrae threw out stinkers last two weeks they will bounce back

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/04/2019 at 11:49

    May need to seriously be considered. He was projected to go 140 this week and he only scored half of that. (71 SC) and missed his BE by 12 SC. Those numbers tell me his BE is going to absolutely sky rocket next week and will start bleeding serious cash. I have Darcy Moore, and Brad Crouch as well. Out of those 3 I think Libba is my biggest concern right now.

      Dave · 28/04/2019 at 12:41

      BE aside, libba should be good to continue to score well. Should be focusing on upgrading parker, petrol, butters, clark etc

    TommyC99 · 28/04/2019 at 13:25

    I’m considering Libba – Fyfe atm

    Constable after a rest and spends more time around the ball imo

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 10:08

    You have 2 guys averaging in the 50s and 1 averaging 80. Unless you see Gibbons smashing out another ton, play it safe with Constable

Cliffy · 28/04/2019 at 11:54

Hi all,

Take Parker's 63 over Petruccelle for today?

Petruccelle playing down at the Cattery, and plus 4/5 scores for him been under 63 so far this season has my gut leaning towards banking the score.

Thoughts?

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 11:56

    Take it

    kevdup · 28/04/2019 at 14:31

    Yup, had same decision. Took Parker's 63. Cats defense will eat up Petraculle

Dave · 28/04/2019 at 11:55

Is boak worth nearly 600k this week? No other fwd premiums are in his league

    KSinny · 28/04/2019 at 12:56

    Other than Danger

      Dave · 28/04/2019 at 13:27

      Yeah danger too. But is boak worth the cash or shpuld i look at a daniel or worpel type?

        RoyWetard · 28/04/2019 at 15:04

        If you think he'll average 110+ for the rest of the year, yeah. 105 or less, go for someone else first.

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 17:27

        Worpel's still good value too Dave, tracking for 90 ish. Can't afford Boak but might target Tom Hawkins or Westhoff soon.
        Reckon either could finish the season strong.
        I'd rather wait for Boak to have a bad game or 2.
        No other fwds are in his league yet…but time changes things.

Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 13:33

      Good

    RoyWetard · 28/04/2019 at 14:50

    I'm more worried that he's got a 5 round high score of 104.

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 14:55

      Yeah well the hand injury may have influenced that yesterday. Sideways trade tho

      Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 17:57

Cripps or Danger for captain today or bank 134 from Grundy?

      I'm warming to Cripps. I think the Blues will have a red hot crack today with Cripps leading the way (again). Also I hope Simpson starts wearing his long sleeves ffs it's winter weather.

Shake_n_bake · 28/04/2019 at 14:24

Curnow out well well!!!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/04/2019 at 19:30

    Called it early shake

    Finger on the pulse mate…

      Shake_n_bake · 28/04/2019 at 20:39

      Ill only post it if l know Trigga. Not sure why Carlton named him. Someone said it was fake news. Maybe I’ll just leave it till people find out for themselves

JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 15:17

Probably only one trade for me this week, Hayes looks like he might be worth bringing in. Then the week after will be looking at getting in Neale or Fyfe, with an up and downgrade, Clark to Answerth might be the go by then.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 17:41

    Looks like Atkins will be the one leaving my team.

      Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 18:29

      🤔 Is actually playing? I think he might have gone home at qtr time… 😟

        Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 18:39

        And they’ve sent Putrid Jelly out to look for him..

          Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 18:59

          ahahah putrid Jelly and Shitekins?…both playing like bloody rookies.

        JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 18:50

        HaHaHa, I like that Lazza, at least he's only sitting on my bench, so no big lose. I just noticed we are up against each other in two leagues next weekend, so that should be two wins for you.

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 15:40

Watch Danger go 180+ now that i went with Cripps as C

    silversovereign · 28/04/2019 at 15:53

    He’s copping a hard tag from Howe. Lucky to be on 19 at qtr time. I have the C on him too.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 16:18

      My gut was telling me to go Danger but i reasoned that Hutchings was a better tagger than Howe, looks like they're both pretty good at their role.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 17:07

    Is he copping the Hutchings tag?…8 points so far 🙁

      AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 17:28

      Apparently sunday was just a bad day for captaincy options 🙁

        Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 18:31

        Who were your VC options AB?

          JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 18:52

          AB had Rocky, so he didn't really have a choice but to go with someone else.

          AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 19:56

          Went with Rocky as VC because my opponent in the cash league went Grundy and i wanted a POD. Thought i made an awesome choice when rocky was on 50 at QT, not to be unfortunately.

    Jester · 28/04/2019 at 17:08

    Watching my Hawks coming home. Seems Danger is wearing the hutchings glove?

BlueBaggerJosh · 28/04/2019 at 16:40

Started Petrevski-Seton ✔️
Traded in McKay ✔️
Super premo Walsh ✔️
Scrimshaw on bench 😢
Cripps captain 💀

    BlueBaggerJosh · 28/04/2019 at 17:23

    Ok everything has been turned upside down lol, horrible third quarter

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 19:24

      Traded in McKay?????????

Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 17:55

Newman and Simpson both injured … out of the game … interesting trading week ahead

    Pranav · 28/04/2019 at 18:02

    if newman is ruled out for a week might be time to get rid

Pranav · 28/04/2019 at 18:05

i guess the positive is we have been in the lead for majority of the game for the past 3 weeks sucks to only have the 1 win but onwards and upwards

Doc_1 · 28/04/2019 at 18:07

Neck and neck in my main league. 3 points up at half time in the Geelong/west coast game.

Who wins?

Danger/Constable/+3 v Stewart/Kelly

    Pranav · 28/04/2019 at 18:17

    i think danger constable

      Doc_1 · 28/04/2019 at 18:58

      Hope so!

      Still just in front at the 10 minute mark of the last.

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 18:26

Anyone else think Walsh was hard done by not to get 90? Of course this is the week he's a unique

    BrownlowBoy · 28/04/2019 at 18:27

    Didn't even crack 80

    Lazza · 28/04/2019 at 18:36

    Nup… made quite few errors … still a good score for a rookie… I’m more surprised Cripps got 93 … his foot disposal was crap today… … not that it’s ever elite…

TOPHAWK1 · 28/04/2019 at 18:41

What a train wreck of a Sunday. Turds and injuries all over the place. Cripps, Newman, Danger (so far), and Simpson. Thank fark I took Fyfe's VC score and taking the C off Cripps. I will be lucky to hit 2100 this week. Tough tough round. How did others fare?

    Sam_01 · 28/04/2019 at 18:44

    2077 plus danger gonna be a rough one this week rank will slide

    silversovereign · 28/04/2019 at 19:27

    Yeah shocking round. About 2,190. Cripps C didn’t help

      Patch · 28/04/2019 at 20:08

      2190's looking good Silver. I'm at 2165, having lost nearly 20 points in scaling

        hedski · 28/04/2019 at 20:23

        You done me by a dozen in Brownolw Boys league Patch 👏 2153 for me.

        silversovereign · 28/04/2019 at 20:31

        Those champion data boys can be cruel bast.ards!

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 19:30

    Another 2200 odd. 6 weeks in a row now all scores in the 2200s

      Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 20:05

      2281

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:06

        Awesome Holty , should move you up the rankings a bit this week.

          Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 20:08

          Hope So. Good score by you as well. I think anything over 2200 this week will be good. I think 2170 will be about par

          Sixtybloody6 · 28/04/2019 at 21:00

          But who cares about rank? Like really!

            Maverick_ · 28/04/2019 at 23:15

            did i beat you by 1 point this week sixty6 in "hey ho lets go"?
            bloody close game!

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:07

        Yeah Holty!

        TOPHAWK1 · 28/04/2019 at 20:24

        Bang! Another massive total. Good stuff mate. Keep it going.

    Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:34

    2227. Highest in my league some how. I think par will be around 2150.

      Browncow · 28/04/2019 at 20:44

      2227 is solid this week! I sneaked through in most of my games with 2170.

    Swans2012 · 28/04/2019 at 19:36

    Scraped 1986 with late out donuts thanks to franklin and Marshall… looking forward to bringing either Fyfe or Kelly in this week….just gotta decide who

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/04/2019 at 19:37

    Phew.

    Chalk up a win for the good guys hawk.
    Close tussle but there were some ordinary scores between us.
    But will take the W. 😁

    The Ranger · 28/04/2019 at 19:44

    Horrible. 2058.
    Very itchy trigger finger.

    Derek · 28/04/2019 at 19:47

    Just got past you in the Magnificent 7 Top.

    2161 won half my leagues, so I guess I’m just average again this week.

    _Kyle · 28/04/2019 at 19:56

    Was eyeing off a 2400 score a day and a half ago. Barely managed to scrape through to 2130 mate. Disaster!

    hedski · 28/04/2019 at 20:25

    2153 TH, got a few wins back against some crew.
    You cleaned me up in Jungle land draft.

    Steeeve · 28/04/2019 at 20:26

    2080, whitfield and a few others killed me

Derek · 28/04/2019 at 18:42

Needed Constable to score less than 50 for me to beat Shake.

    Shake_n_bake · 28/04/2019 at 20:35

    Another good game Derek.

Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 18:44

Thanks for destroying my season Darling. There's always one sour, rotten, bitter, disgusting, stinky, smelly, foul, gangrenous, necrotic,… give me a "C… C, give me a "U"… U, give me an "N"… N, guess the next letter… what does it spell "Jack Darling!" in every side every year.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:03

    That's a whole lot of adjectives!…you could always trade Darling out for A pint of Milk.

      Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 19:10

      I need the milk of the poppy! Tried to be disciplined and not trade out after last week. Crikey! I'm happy to give him to you Rusty. I think it would be less stressful having a doughnut in that position.

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:17

        Mate next time one of your players scores a 9, you gotta turf their useless butts…. Daring can't play in the wet or the dry apparently.

          Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 19:36

          Will do! I wish I could charge him for terrorism as well.

    Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 19:20

    Hahahahahaha wow
    Never a good pick
    Hahahahahahaahahahahahahahah

      Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 19:25

      Well obviously not! Just like some of the women, I dated in the past. I must have been drawn in by his beautiful long hairy legs ;P

      Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:31

      No worse than starting with Lynch and then sidewaysing to Westhoff, and then to Worpel in week 3 ay "Nice Person"?..maybe don't be so quick to laugh at others when you've had a pretty comical, trade wasting start…Did I mention Ridley also?

        Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:10

        Russty Russty Russty, I havnt bothered looking at your team, how is it going?

          Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:16

          going alright, at least I'm not making trades out of pure panic lol, I wouldn't be ridiculing other people on their choices with your record this year..but you probably can't help it.

            Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:26

            So should he hold darling then? Trade ppl if they aren't performing. Jog on rusty same old boring comments from a pretender

              Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:30

              Just calling you for what you are…a nasty prick who loves to kick people when they're down. At least he stuck with his guy for more than one week.

                Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:34

                Yeah and it worked out great? Lost alot of value and will still have to trade? Please tell me how he is better off ffs rusty

                  Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:41

                  He should've traded him last week, not the point though, you're so quick to "hahahahah" him when you picked Lynch and then Westhoff?…Pot calling the Kettle black, you're no better at this game than he is. Stop pretending to be.

                    Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:47

                    I'm probably doing better at this stage, you're boring me mate.
                    Catch ya

                    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:49

                    Have fun wallowing in your hate filled cess pool.

        Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:16

        Plus if I kept lynch or Hoff my season would be done, much like bacon Butts is now

    hedski · 28/04/2019 at 20:27

    Traded him to Daniel yesterday Boris, felt bloody great 👍

      Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 20:50

      Well done hedski 😀 At least some of us weren't left with the slops.

Ja191 · 28/04/2019 at 19:10

massive effort from kelly, 12 tackles ill take a 90

    COREYSC · 28/04/2019 at 19:37

    especially when tagged by hutchings all game

Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:15

Miers is a good rookie, spewing I missed out of his dirty dreadlocks Hippy ass.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/04/2019 at 19:28

    He's a rippa.
    Brought him in on the bubble

    Just like constable. A rook you can put on ground confident he will pump out a 60 plus every week.and also make you some sweet, sweet cash. 🤑

    Boris_Baconbeer · 28/04/2019 at 19:39

    Of course, I benched him. Oh well.

Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 19:24

Par?

    AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 19:44

    I reckon around 2200 Josh, tough round, i only ended up on about 2160

      Daz · 28/04/2019 at 19:54

      Less than 2200, 2150, looking at all my leagues lots of 2100’s/2000s not many 2200’s

KSinny · 28/04/2019 at 19:28

Trash score this week with 2103, how'd everyone else fair?

    Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:31

    2227. That was the highest score in my league believe it or not.

      KSinny · 28/04/2019 at 19:38

      That's a damn good score this week man

        Sam_01 · 28/04/2019 at 19:43

        2170 I reckon 2200 probably the par id say, a lot of turd scores going around tho

        Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:43

        Cheers. A few let me down today, as for most other people.

      Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:06

      Got me by 1

      Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 20:08

      Nice score Rocksta

        Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:17

        Cheers Holty. Your score is the highest I’ve seen so far. Well done. You are tracking along nicely I reckon with those consistent 2200 plus scores.

    Maverick_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:46

    2130. an absolute stinker cripps as C hurt i think i'll be losing a few placing overrall unfortunately.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 19:48

    2207, looks like I won 9 out of 10 leagues this week, was hoping for a turnaround soon.

      neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 20:02

      Did you beat the Gat it was close

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:03

        Yeah just mate, only one I lost was in Statty Matty's League.

      Shake_n_bake · 28/04/2019 at 20:33

      Got me by 8 Russty

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:31

        Sorry Shake, lots of close games this week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/04/2019 at 20:21

    2095 for me mate. Time to hit the trade lever me thinks!

      Shake_n_bake · 29/04/2019 at 10:26

      Wish l played you this week Hawk!

    JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 20:27

    2156 which seems about my par score this season, won 7 of my 9 league games, was in another close one, this time I lost by one point.

    Mick · 28/04/2019 at 20:37

    2285. Very happy.

      Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 20:58

      Awesome score. Highest I’ve seen.👍

      Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:35

      Nice Mick, very good this week.

    NoLanguage96 · 28/04/2019 at 22:59

    2120. Lot of rubbish scores, MacRae and Heeney in particular

    Meph · 29/04/2019 at 02:19

    2187. Thought for sure I'd lose rank but actually gained one spot. 15th to 14th. Actually gained 20 points on first as well.

COREYSC · 28/04/2019 at 19:43

2172 whats the par score

JohnDJ59 · 28/04/2019 at 19:53

2156 for me this round, won seven of my nine league games, lost one by one point, my heroes were Gawn, Boak (VC), M.Crouch, Z.Williams, Lloyd, Ross, O'Brien, Hore. Villans – Whitfield, Cripps, Danger. I guess Cripps and Danger weren't that bad since most teams have them.

_Kyle · 28/04/2019 at 19:54

All i can say is wow! After looking through my leages i saw what i thought to be the very first tie of the year with dont blush baby and demon delights tied on 2134 each only to look back 5 mins later and see that after scaling neils managed to bring home the biscuits 2139-2137! Wow

    dontblushbaby · 28/04/2019 at 20:21

    You get that on the big jobs

    No idea · 28/04/2019 at 21:34

    Went the other way for me. After the last game I was tied 2127 – 2127 with my opponent. I looked back ~ 15 minutes later to see I'd now lost 2127 – 2135 !

neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 20:00

An update on my epic battle with DBB After day 2 level on 1000 and 2 the projected diff .Neck and neck since and i crawl over the line,but the gods said different ,downgrading petru and kelly to wait for it– a draw Great game DBB and this is what it is all about. great competition great dedicated coaches and a fitting result congrats DBB see you in Trigg's final i hope

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 20:04

    Well done mate, just scraped in….tough competition this year with so many good coaches in the leagues.

      dontblushbaby · 28/04/2019 at 20:20

      You got me by 2 pts NDD, the Whitfield injury hurt me , all good ,we move onto the next round

      neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 20:26

      Hi fellas my bad about our epic game with DBB it got downgraed again since i looked and i scraped in by 2 Sorry mate Should have been a draw cheers NDD

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/04/2019 at 20:18

    Great stuff Neil. What a slugfest that was with you and Dontblushbaby. You win by 2. But it was anyone's game this one. I got beat by Trigga by 21 in the end. Thats what it all about. Good tough contests!

      neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 20:28

      Great competition and flukes count at the pointy end . Want to go well in Triggs and CAZALY

    AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 21:13

    You also had a draw with me in the draft league Neil! Big week for you haha

      neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 21:50

      i didn't know that must have been downgraded too as you won when i checked lucky i guess

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/04/2019 at 21:53

        I don't get draft at all.

        You have a late out like higgins and you get a donut?

        Tough.

          Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 23:04

          Should get the lowest score from the bench if you have an out Trig.

            neil demons delight · 29/04/2019 at 00:17

            i did Russty Buddy was out and got 62 but it's not the same degree of enjoyment sorta like a bony nigirian wife, you know what i mean

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 20:07

Over my years playing this game, one truth has become apparent: supercoach is less about who you select, it's more about who you dont select. I need to find a way to get Hurn, Whitfield, Neale and Boak in quick smart, each week without them is hurting me deeply

    Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:12

    Well this week without whit helped

    I think boak has got too expensive and just have to try pick the next one. Neale is a jet as is hurn

      AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 20:26

      Yeah happy that whitfield has stumbled, will look to pick him up in 2-3 weeks. Boak is definitely getting too expensive, will look at him after his bye where (hopefully) his scoring has settled down. Hurn and especially Neale are complete must haves and i need them in asap, unfortunately it seems that the only way to do it within the next 4-5 weeks is a sideways trade, and im not doing that.

      Did you start with Hurn NP

        neil demons delight · 28/04/2019 at 20:31

        Have you got Libba AB could go up to Neale with him maybe

          AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 20:47

          Nah mate, didn't trust his body, only got Walsh and Constable at M7 and M8

        Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:33

        Nah missed out on hurn but he's going to be 600+ need to wait for him to cork his thigh and go 45

          AuroraBorealis?! · 28/04/2019 at 20:47

          haha, heres hoping

    iamme · 28/04/2019 at 20:33

    I didnt start wih any and its sure as hell burned me Aurora…I got Neale in a couple of weeks back, thank god. Whitfield should drop some coin in the next couple of weeks, Hurn is looking really strong…..and nobody saw the rise of Boak.

2243 this week, after 3 weeks ín a row where i couldn't reach 2100 and plummeting 30,000 plus spots down the ladder …. im happy with that score, that's for sure.

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 20:55

    Nice score

      iamme · 28/04/2019 at 21:01

      Thanks Holty01, It was enough to be the top score of my league… congrats on your 2281

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:30

    Nice one Iamme, did you move up about 15000 spots this week?

      iamme · 28/04/2019 at 22:14

      Thanks Russty_, moved up 13,556 to be precise. Hows your season going this year mate?…got to be better than mine, My previous 3 weeks couldn't hit 2100 lol

        Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:20

        Slowish start bud but have moved up 19000 spots in the last 2 weeks. Moving in the right direction.

hedski · 28/04/2019 at 20:33

Macrae was my lowest premo with 83, had a lot hovering between 85-105.
Ended on 2153.
Grawndy, Hurn, Williams were the only real standouts.
Tipped 9 too 👍
Go cats….

    COREYSC · 28/04/2019 at 21:05

    I tipped Nine too mate! perfection unlike this week in supercoach its really been an arm wrestle this season. Scores of 2100-2300 seem to be enough they're hasn't been a huge scoring round this season just yet.

Tom · 28/04/2019 at 20:36

T.Stewart or T.Kelly this week?

    Nice_Person · 28/04/2019 at 20:48

    Not sure stewert is top 6 and Def rookies doing well I'd get a fwd in

Daz · 28/04/2019 at 21:07

2214 up the rankings from 144 to 85, happy with that!

    Derek · 28/04/2019 at 21:55

    Noce!

Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:40

Do we bring Toby Greene in this week? He’s never going to be any cheaper, and will definitely score better than the Rookies. Should average at least 85 for the rest of the season as well I would have thought.

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:57

    Only if you think they'll be top 6 forwards from here on in I reckon Rocksta…Greene's not that for me.

Saritz · 28/04/2019 at 21:43

Low totals always feels crappy at the time. But the positive is with a number of Premo’s stinking it up, means they will become gettable in a few weeks time. For example, if you didn’t start with Whitfield, he has gone 86 and now 45 in the last 2 outings. And even if he gets up this week and plays with the corky, it will still affect his running/scoring. In another 3-4 weeks he will likely be under 500k!! So their is a silver lining to this last round. Starting planning now for how you can add some of the Promo’s who have stunk it up in the coming rounds

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 21:55

    For sure Saritz, I'll be targeting Whitfield, for 40 grand less than he started at in a few weeks. MacRae too.

    Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:13

    Agreed.
    Definitely targeting Whitfield in a couple of weeks.

Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 22:08

Shout out to the rabble who joined my league (Lek&patches rabble). We sitting 81st.

    Derek · 28/04/2019 at 22:58

    A quality rabble

Swans2012 · 28/04/2019 at 22:11

Kelly for scrimshaw in one trade

Or

Fyfe and Hayes for butters and constable

I’d prefer Fyfe but constable and butters still have $$$ to make whereas scrim is done. And it costs an extra trade

I’m thinking Kelly this week and then Fyfe next.

Thoughts

Maverick_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:13

brayshaw brayshaw brayshaw hmmmmm…
#31st best mid atm. is it time to cut my ties admit it was a fail and grab fyfe or is that too sideways

    Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:21

    May as well do it mate, I did it 2 weeks ago for Neale, gotta cut ties sometimes and go sideways-ish.

    Holty01 · 28/04/2019 at 22:22

    You took the punt with Brayshaw and it hasn’t worked. Mainly because Melbourne aren’t winning. Barring injuries, Fyfe is almost guaranteed to be a top 8 mid. I don’t see a problem with this trade

      Russty_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:32

      Congrats on the ranking Holty, keep pushing mate, you're in with a genuine sniff this year.

KSinny · 28/04/2019 at 22:18

If i want Fyfe this week i have to go early on either Walsh or Libba, leaning toward Walsh seeing as Libba is playing really well and could be a possible m8-m9 come seasons end. Thoughts on this guys?

    Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:38

    I’d go Walsh out of those two

    Maverick_ · 28/04/2019 at 22:49

    I'd probably go the other way. libba has a BE 111 and a 98 and 78 in his last 3 isn't fantastic for future BE's. he was always going to be a stepping stone to a fallen premium so once he starts losing $$ its time to move him on.

What_Bear · 28/04/2019 at 22:58

anybody know much about the 2 doggies on the bubble this week? look like they may be ok for 80K-100Kk only

TBone_9 · 28/04/2019 at 23:33

Scored 2173 this week, not bad but not great either. Burning two trades to bring in Fyfe this week. Should be a great onfield improvement over Butters 🙂

    JohnDJ59 · 29/04/2019 at 00:59

    Well done TBone, that was probably just above par for this weekend, I ended up with 2156, which seems about my par for the season so far. Fyfe should be one of the most traded in players this week.

      TBone_9 · 29/04/2019 at 01:31

      Cheers mate! Any pressing issues in your team at the moment? I’m not loving having Parker at F6 with only Balta as backup on the bench. Besides that I’m eagerly trying to look for ways to get Lloyd, Hurn, Boak and Macrae in without culling rookies too early

Jack · 28/04/2019 at 23:37

Walsh B/E of 67 and made 236k. At the end of the day, he's a cash cow and needs to be upgraded. Walsh > Fyfe no brainer for me this week

    Maverick_ · 28/04/2019 at 23:55

    only needs another ton and it'll push his BE right down again and make a pile more cash… he may very well be 500k in another 2-3 weeks, don't have anyone else to upgrade?

    Rocksta_ · 28/04/2019 at 23:57

    I’ll probably do the same. Not sold on the available rookie downgrade targets though.
