SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 7

Published by Kev on

Gil and his cronies have finally restored order and we are kicking off the round on a Friday. The rollercoaster that is my trash filled side is becoming a little less trashier with upgrade season upon us over the next few weeks. Like with all good rollercoasters though, lurking behind the scintillating high of trading in a fallen premium are those gosh darn bye rounds ready to pants ya and humiliate you.

So before you go rummaging through the bargain bin to unearth the next hidden SuperCoach gem, do an assessment of your side and plan your next 5-6 trades wisely. Can’t split Laird v Sicily this week? Sicily’s round 12 bye is golden. Laird can wait for a bit if it stops you from being too heavy in Rory’s round 14 bye. Hit up your preferred breakeven supplier and give yourself a rough idea of when rookies will be peaking and when the premiums you want will be at their lowest. Of course if you don’t give a stuff about the byes and are just taking a #YOLO approach this year (again…) do whatever you want, I’m not your mother. 

Everybody remembers the yvan eht noij Simpsons episode right? Well the podcast this week is a bit hcir leinad ni edart this week. Do we trust a burnman…?. Barron has cracked out another fabulous Around the Grounds. My idiocy in picking a captain last week cost me a head-to-head against Patch. Every time we match up my team shits the bed! Get the good oil on the good captain choices this week with Damo. Statty Matty is all over the rookie situation this week in his weekly cheat sheet.  

The News

It just wouldn’t be a weekend of footy with several curveballs being thrown in our direction. Lachie Whitfield is out as expected, but joining him will be popular rookies Jack Scrimshaw and Charlie Constable. Both guys have made us a ton of cash so far so there’s temptation to trade both, but as Matty pointed out in his cheat sheet Jack Scrimshaw is close to maxing out anyway.

Tonight, Ben Reid and Jamie Elliot return for injured Cox and the omitted Travis Varcoe. Karl Amon replaces Robbie Gray, who is out for a month with a broken hand. 

Josh Wagner is back for the Dees. Shaun Burgoyne is fit for the Hawks and Dylan Moore returns to play his second game. The suspended James Cousins joins the previously mentioned Scrimshaw on the sidelines. The Saints have done all sorts: Darragh Joyce gets his second game, Rowan Marshall returns and there’s a debut for former Pie Jonathon Marsh (DEF – 163.1k). Jack Steven is among the outs. Isaac Cumming (DEF – 173.7k) will play his first game for the year at the Giants. The Swans have shuffled the deck, recalling Will Hayward and Kieran Jack. Bubble boy James Rowbottom has been omitted. No changes at Brisbane. Jack Redden is fit at West Coast and comes straight in for Jarrod Brander. Anthony Miles is among the ins at the Suns, who are resting Jack Lukosius. No change at the Dogs. Shai Bolton is back at the Tigers after being dropped last week, Jack Riewoldt will be out for the next few months. 

There’s a laundry list of changes for Carlton vs Norf. Kade Simpson, Nic Newman, Mitch McGovern, and Kruze are all injured. Will Setterfield returns from a two week suspension that felt like 20. Charlie Curnow has been named but who knows with this guy. There’s also possible debuts for Liam Stocker (MID – 126.3k) and Angus Schumacher (DEF – 123.9k). Shaun Higgins will play at North, but Aaron Hall has been dropped. Jordan Clark is a fair shout to line up for Geelong this week, Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k) has been added to the squad. Essendon have added Sam Draper (RUC – 123.9k) and recalled Orazio for the match. For the last game of the week, no confirmed outs yet for either Adelaide or Fremantle, but Bryce Gibbs has been named for Adelaide. At Freo, Sean Darcy will probably return and there’s a possible debut for the mature aged Brett Bewley (MID – 117.3k)

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

There’s been plenty of podcasts and column inches this week devoted to the many, many fallen premiums we’ve got for not only this week, but the weeks ahead. I’ll refer back to my intro though and say if you’re struggling to split options pick the one that best suits your bye structure. For Lock purposes, I just can’t go past the value that is Nat Fyfe. I’m not going to hit you with a bunch of stats. He is a proven A grader in SuperCoach. Yes he may get injured at some point, but so could anyone. He just ticks so many boxes. Round 12 bye – tick. Injury-less average of 127 – tick. Under 600k? – tick. Really, really, really ridiculously good looking? – tick, tick, and tick.  

If you don’t/can’t grab him this week he should still be available for under 600k next week. Make him a priority, community. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Huge test for the Power tonight taking on Collingwood on their home deck. From a Draftstars point of view, both sides are in the bottom 4 for conceding points to the opposition. The Pies love to be in control of the footy and without Port having a recognised tagger could equal pay dirt for Collingwood mids


To Grundy (15.5k) or not to Grundy. There’s a lot to consider tonight, on the one hand number 1 rucks have really struggled against Port this year, averaging 79 with a high score of 96 (Goldy). If we consider Grundy as a midfielder, Port are the stingiest team in the league, only allowing 92DS to the top 3 opposition midfielders. 

Grundy smashed Ryder last time these two sides met, scoring 147DS. In his two games against Lycett and West Coast however, he only managed 68 and 99. I won’t go as far to say Grundy is a bad pick, he’s solo rucking tonight after all, and it’s Brodie Grundy, he’s a God amongst men. If you’re entering multiple lineups then enter a few with/without him. I’ll only enter one lineup though, so I feel there are “safer” selections tonight. I’ll take the 9.9k Lycett here. 


Medium defenders are a good place to attack Port this year, problem is Collingwood have so many that nailing that selection is a hard thing to do. Both Jeremy Howe (11.1k) and Jack Crisp (13k) have good recent records against Port and at Marvel stadium. The slightly cheaper Brayden Maynard (10.1k) and Tom Langdon (10k) are options too. Port have also let key defenders get on top of them in recent weeks, making Darcy Moore (7.5k) a solid value play (but he’ll be popular)


Port are allowing an average of 90DS to the oppositions number 1 medium forward. Jordan de Goey (12.3k) has had a really solid month, but price has crept up to a point where he no longer a value selection. Again, not a bad pick, but if it’s value you want take Jaidyn Stephenson (9.5k) instead. Justin Westhoff (12k) is slightly cheaper than de Goey and back up on the wing again where he can flourish.

Sam Gray’s (9.9k) price tag is under 10k for some reason after scores 122 and 116 for the past two weeks. The Pies have been pretty good at limiting mid/fwds but he’s got his tail up and is full of confidence.  


Where will Levi Greenwood go tonight? Rocky has been susceptible to the tag in the past so I’m crossing my fingers and going with Travis Boak (MID / 14.9k). Take your pick of Collingwood midfielders; Adams (15.2k), Pendles (13.8k), and Sidebum (13.6k) all have 110+ recent averages against Port. Treloar’s (14.9k) is 109.  Karl Amon (6.5k) returns tonight and is good enough to hit 10x value. Sam Powell-Pepper is too good to be under 10k. 


COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 11:14

Double Downgrade this week
Scrimshaw to Answerth or Young?
Who do I downgrade for Hayes I have Atkins, Constable, Gibbons, Butters and Scott

    BrownlowBoy · 03/05/2019 at 11:37


      COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 11:47

      Righto, that leaves me with Atkins and Hayes on the field and I’ll loop Gibbons using Constable

Dreamin · 03/05/2019 at 11:27

Want to upgrade Collins in DEF, but best I can do with budget is to get Houli ? Is this a valid move ?

(Already spent my other trade getting rid of Gray (grr) to Kelly)

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:18

    Move is valid.

    I like the move, biggest risk is that Houli tends to get hurt a bit, but lets face it most players get injuries these days.

    Cpt Pugwash · 03/05/2019 at 22:47

    Let’s hope that wasn’t Josh Kelly – late out.

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:59

      Josh Kelly is out mate…sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Sarah · 03/05/2019 at 11:58

Pretty simple week this week, Atkins to Hayes and Parker to T Kelly.

Holding both Scrimshaw and Constable I think, a shame Whitfield didn't play so his price drop comes sooner!

    COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 12:08

    What’s the reasoning for holding both Constable and Scrimshaw

      Sarah · 03/05/2019 at 14:00

      Constable still a low BE and could come back next week if an injury / better match up, no good back rookies to bring in for Scrimshaw.

      Atkins a low BE but role not conducive to points so probably won't go up much in value this week to next, probably make more than that price rise out of Constable if he gets back in the side.

    Sharkmove_King · 03/05/2019 at 16:21

    Solid trades

    The_Blacksheep · 03/05/2019 at 19:39

    Solid, I am doing the same trades.

    Beezneez · 03/05/2019 at 19:45

    Doing Atkins to Hayes. Tossing up between Petrucelle, Parker, Setterfield and Gibbons for T Kelly. Might be going with Setterfield cos can use Petrucelle and/or Gibbons to Fyfe next week as they are expected to rise a bit and Setterfield's not playing (again).

      The_Blacksheep · 03/05/2019 at 19:50

      Petrucelle BE -3 and Gibbons BE -19, I would be holding those two.

        Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 10:02

        Thanx Blacksheep. Reaffirms my thinking.

Alferton · 03/05/2019 at 12:03

Looking at 2 upgrades this week.
Best option
1: Daniel or T.Kelly
2: Sicily or Laird.

Thoughts please.

    SC_Kev7 · 03/05/2019 at 12:15

    If you're playing for overall TK has the better ceiling than Daniel. Laird has shown his scoring will drop with Milera and Smith in the side so prefer Sicily. If playing leagues, as I said in the intro, pick whoever best suits your bye structure

    Saritz · 05/05/2019 at 07:56

    There looks to be a couple of decent bubble boys. You need to take the kids when they become available. Maybe better to paint the fence

FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 12:26

Anyone able to help me finally lock a damn decision in. I've reversed it umpteem times already. I have checked byes and none will really make any major difference!

Lloyd, Sicily, Hurn which one do I bring in 😐

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/05/2019 at 12:28


    COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 12:39


    Mick · 03/05/2019 at 12:53

    Lloyd, Hurn Sicily in that order.

    neil demons delight · 03/05/2019 at 13:48

    hurn lloyd sicily. First two are must haves not sure about the flog

      FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 13:51

      I've currently locked in Sicily only cause it leaves me 100k to go shopping next week with a downgrade should mean another premium.

      Hurn and Lloyd might bleed some cash yet. Sic shouldn't.

      Plus I wanna get Neale in next week and that 100k on Constable with another downgrade could make it happen 😐

      Or do I STFU and take Lloyd LOL like my brain and everyone else says (my only concern is how bad the Swans are going with injuries and form he might not pump 130 etc).

        Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:27

        The bearded one, you ask for opinions, which are given, then you totally ignore the opinions. Why ask.

        I have both Lloyd & Hurn, and don't have Sicily.

        I would have taken Hurn first, he has been ultra consistent this year (1 game under 108). Averaged around 30 disposals over the past 4 rounds, is an intercept marking beast, and takes most kick-outs.

          FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 14:46

          Thanks Hawks. Now you see why I've reversed so many times. I'm just trying to weigh it all up.

          I have no doubt Lloyd/Hurn are needed. It's just will they drop cash.

          Looking at it now I don't know if Hurn will with 100 odd b/e. Lloyd could with 130 odd breakeven.

          My concern is does Hurn score as well when he plays a shit team they dominate as in less kick ins etc? Am I over thinking it? That's why I was leaning towards Lloyd (who then turned me of a touch with his BE and the fact Swans missing a fair few and losing more). Then thought Sicily last 3 rounds been 120ish and is 35k cheaper?

          See my issue lol?

            Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 15:31

            You need Lloyd, but his price will drop, get him in later.

            Hurn's price is reasonable, not likely to drop, he will be top 8 defender (currently #2, behind Lloyd).Missed just 1 game since the beginning of 2015. Ultra consistent, kick out rule in favourable to his scoring.

            Sicily, rise will rise $10-15k then stabilise, if he keeps scoring well. has only played 20 games in a season once (2016), misses due to suspension. Can be swung forward by Clarko when needed, which makes his scoring less predictable.

            I would go Hurn this week, and get Lloyd in when his price comes down a bit in a few weeks, keep watching Sicily, but id have him 3rd on the list for SC, even as a Hawthorn supporter.

              FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 15:42

              Thanks Hawks.

              With this comment it has actually made me feel more confident in my move. I could even potentially move on Lloyd next week if I wish too.

              Thank you for taking the time!

    LordDeb · 03/05/2019 at 14:33

    Hum for sure<img src="; width="1"/>

    FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 15:23

    Reversed to Hurn now 😐 literally been back and forth non stop lol. So tired of it.

    Lloyd to Sic is 40k. Sic to Hurn is 20k so that's not as bad :/

    What do I know :|||||||

DavidC · 03/05/2019 at 13:26

Stocker to debut

Swoosh111 · 03/05/2019 at 13:26

How many of you will be wearing donuts this week with the carnage in the backline??

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/05/2019 at 13:43

    Does Lockhart count as a 🍩

      The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:55

      I need Clark to get a gig.

DavidC · 03/05/2019 at 13:31

While everybody has been trading in Fyfe this week, I've stayed strong. I've kept reminding myself why I didn't select him to start with … he'll miss games through injury and suspension I kept telling myself, he already has. Then the cheat sheet drops. There is Fyfe looking straight at me with those drooping dog ears and big wide sad eyes saying … trade me … trade me … please. Freo have the last game, it's going to be a long weekend.

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:28

    Stay strong

John · 03/05/2019 at 13:32

Thinking of trading Constable to Hayes but I'm unsure of my second trade. Don't know whether to upgrade or downgrade and really needs some help. Was thinking of going Burgess to Young just for some extra cash. Any help is appreciated!!

Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Burgess, Clark
Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Brayshaw, Crouch, Stack, Constable EMG: Atkins, Sparrow, Scott
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn EMG: Sweet
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Petruccelle EMG: Setterfield, Shultz

SgtBilko23 · 03/05/2019 at 13:36

Hey Community,

I need help on if i should go double upgrade, 1 up 1 down or double downgrade (no particular order):

Option 1:
Goldstien -> T.Kelly/Boak
Liberatore -> Fyfe

Option 2:
Goldstien -> T.Kelly/Boak
Jones/Scott/Burgess -> Hayes

Option 3:
Scrimshaw -> L.Young
Jones/Scott/Burgess -> Hayes

Current team is:

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Smith, Williams, Hore, Duursma ( Clark, Scrimshaw)
MID: Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M.crouch, Libba, Constable, Atkins, Butters ( Setterfield, Scott, Jones)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldstien ( o'brien)
FWD: Dangerfield, Heeney, Billings, Drew, Petruccelle, Parker ( Burgess, Bines)

I have $148,700 in the bank
27 trades left


    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:44

    Tough decision.

    Think long term (full promo).

    Who do you want in the Ruck? If your happy with Gawn & Goldy, then keep Goldy, if you want Gawn & Grundy, then you are going to need the cash difference between Goldy & Grundy to do it (currently about $150k).

    OBrien will make cash, and may get to $350k (still going to need $300+k to get to Grundy).

    Grundy is outscoring Goldy by 26pts per game, and O'Brien by 37 pts per game.

    Ask yourself is it worth doing one downgrade, and going Goldy to Grundy, and not having to worry about the rucks until you cash in Obrien?

    That is what I would be doing.

      SgtBilko23 · 03/05/2019 at 15:01

      Ah Whoops I have Grundy ATM not Gawn my bad. Long/Med term O'Brien would turn into Gawn and I am reasonably confident i will have the cash to do so.

      I feel if I go the upgrade I would net more points (+50ish) bringing in a stronger forward or mid and running obrien compared to the +20 going straight to Gawn

    Mick · 03/05/2019 at 14:46

    If I were you I’d go Scrimshaw down to Young or Answerth and then upgrade Constable to Fyfe. The other options you’ve suggested are mostly sideways. Libba, Goldy etc should be your last trades if you have them spare. Upgrade your rooks to premos first.

      SgtBilko23 · 03/05/2019 at 15:03

      I don't mind that Mick. Does it matter that my forward line is the major issue thou or do I just need to grab Fyfe while he is cheap?

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/05/2019 at 13:49

How long is Whitfield out for?

Do I need to think about trade?
Is it an LTI?

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:47

    Its a bad corky, he should only miss 1.

    The fact that GWS sat Whitfield in the goal square last week after assessing the injury tells me it shouldn't be an LTI

      The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 15:17

      Fingers are crossed Hawks.
      I need Clark to play to avoid the donut.

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:54

    Hoping it's only one week Trigga but it might be two.
    I'm holding for now.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/05/2019 at 15:04

      Scrimshaw ouy at the same time sux.
      Can bring Duursma on for Whitfield but Lockhart will have to cover scrimshaw unless I go early on.answorth which dont really wanna do.

        The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 15:55

        Bringing in Cogs so I'm not a premo down but I'm not a premo up either…

    Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 10:05

    One advantage of having Burgess was to swap with Moore to cover Whitfield and avoid having Lockhart on field.

Cliffy · 03/05/2019 at 13:53

Need your advice community:

I got thrown out of whack with the Constable news last night, so have had to improvise my trades for this round, so either:

Option A

Atkins/Butters – Hayes
Constable – TK (via Drew DPP)

– Opens MID/FWD link
– Play Drew at M7, loop one of Butters/Atkins with Hayes at M8

Option B

Collins – Young (he will be D8, just to clear up)
Constable – Fyfe

Option C

Butters – Hayes
Atkins – TK (via Drew DPP)

– Play Drew at M7, loop Hayes/Gibbons at M8
– Hold Constable for Round 7


    Mick · 03/05/2019 at 14:48

    For me; literally A, B, C in that order of liking them.

The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 13:56

Love ya work Kev, thanks

    SC_Kev7 · 03/05/2019 at 16:36

    Any time, Ranger 🙂

KSinny · 03/05/2019 at 14:06

Lloyd or Boak and why?

    Mick · 03/05/2019 at 14:49

    Either, both will be top 2 in their position. Can’t go wrong so whatever works for your bye structure

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:53

    Both are top priced so neither for me but if you made me choose it would be Lloyd as I can't see Boak keeping up a 110av all year.

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:55

    Lloyd, will definitely be top 8 in his position, so wont need to trade him out to have your best team.

      Brn · 03/05/2019 at 16:25

      Lloyd. Boak wont keep the form up

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/05/2019 at 14:08

Any interest in a dusty/lloyd swap in draft NDD?

Got too many mids and not enough def and fwds.

Smith, Curnow, higgins out last week gave me donuts (still not sure how the bench works – apparently dont get a score for a late out) and simmo getting injured just adds to the carnage.

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 18:17

    Pretty sure you only get one emergency score Trig and it's the lowest one.

The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:13

Shai Bolton or Mitch Lewis?

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:54

    I went Shae Bolton this week.

    Think with the injuries at Richmond his JS is better.

MidPricer · 03/05/2019 at 14:15

Constable and Scott to Hayes and TKelly? Don’t really want to drop Constable but need to, to afford TKelly. I could go Scrimshaw but that would mean getting Young instead of Hayes. Could trade Butters but he is playing and still has dollars to make. What is the community doing with Scott?

    Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 14:49

    Using Scott as the loop this week, probably move him as soon as a decent downgrade comes along, unless he gets game time.

Johnno · 03/05/2019 at 14:21

Why are so many people so keen on Laird, he didnt average particularly well with B Smith and Milera in with him and Milera only out for about 6 rounds, when he is back his average will drop if history goes anything like it has.

So therefore would Sicily, Rich or Lloyd be better long term upgrades. (Currently have Hurt and Crisp)

Would love to know your thoughts community.

    Mick · 03/05/2019 at 14:50

    Lloyd definitely would. I still think Laird will finish top 6 Def by seasons end but Lloyd will be top 2.

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:50

    He has the runs on the board Johnno.
    Even if he doesn't do as well with Smith and Milera back he'll still make a decent D6.
    And Smith normally breaks at some point.

      Johnno · 03/05/2019 at 14:59

      I understand he has runs on the board, but surely it would be better to bring a bloke in who averages 95 from now on rather than a bloke who averages 90 from here on in, even though the 90 bloke has a few more points already, as those previous points don't count for anything

        The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 15:24

        Richard hit the nail on the head, it's all about value.
        Sic and Lloyd are great options too but Laird is better value for money right now IMO.
        I woudn't touch Rich with a very long barge pole personally.
        He burns.

    Richard · 03/05/2019 at 15:04

    The appeal is his price. At $531 I think he's this week's buy-of-the-week. He's only going to improve. Those expensive defenders (Sicily, Hurn, Lloyd, etc) will drop in value at some stage. Grab those guys later in the year.

    Beezneez · 03/05/2019 at 20:33

    He wss tagged in all his poorer scoring matches. Wasn't last week and hence good score.

    redherringfc · 03/05/2019 at 21:58

    We pick our top players at the start of the year and work out who we should wait for their price to drop. So we don’t start them and hope they drop. Laird definitely fits this category. The big question is “Is he done?”. In a couple of weeks we’ll be saying “can’t believe he was x dollars a few weeks ago”.

    As for who you are considering, Lloyd is a must, Sicily is pretty close to the mark, especially for such a nice young lad. Rich – risk it, if you want to.

    Not too many have Crisp, but I think almost all of us have Hurt. I blame Johnny Cash.

Stupid Coach · 03/05/2019 at 14:33

24 trades left and $135k in the bank. Team currently as follows:
B: Whitfield,Laird, Z Williams, Collins, Wilkie, Duursma, Lockhart, Joyce
M: Cripps, Oliver, Mcrae, Merrett, Coniglio, Walsh, Stack, Ross, Scott, Butters, Constable
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Heeney, D Smith, Rozee, Drew, Settlefield, Petrucelle, Parker

Keeping Whitfield and will use either Joyce or Lockhart (leaning towards Joyce) to cover him. I have lost patience with D Smith and not sure whether to persevere or trade him to T Kelly/C Daniel. My only option appears to be Scott to Hayes or Scott to Hayes and D Smith to Kelly or Daniel (Kelly works better for my bye structure).

Love to bring Fyfe in this week but it might have to wait until next week.

Would appreciate any thoughts or advise Community.

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:48

    Hold your premos and only trade them when you've fixed all of your other problems.
    Scott or Constable – Hayes.

Jack · 03/05/2019 at 14:33

Have $400,000 and am considering going Constable -> Fyfe and Scott -> Hayes, leaving me with roughly $200,000. Is it worth trading out Constable and Scott seeing as they're not playing?

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 14:46

    Yep. Good trades IMO.

      Jack · 03/05/2019 at 14:59

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm set on Scott-> Hayes, the other alternative is Atkins -> Fyfe and that allows me to loophole Hayes with Setterfield. Leaning towards this ATM as Constable has the scoring capability to make another 100k which will be crucial in filling out my mids.

        The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 15:30

        Not much in it Jack.
        Constable has made enough money to be traded – I work on the theory that anything above 150K is fine.
        I'm concerned Constable might struggle to get back in now with Parfitt fit and Selwood not far off.

          Jack · 03/05/2019 at 16:21

          Yeah i'd have to agree it is concerning that he has gone from managed to now not even making the extended interchange

FCAbel · 03/05/2019 at 14:41

Cunstable to Hayes or Scrimshaw to Young to facilitate Collins to TK. Seeing pros and cons to both 🤔

Gibbs · 03/05/2019 at 15:31

Trading Scrimshaw this week, have 640 k to spend so can afford anyone. Who do I get out of Lloyd, Hurn, Sicily, Ryan and Stewart?

    FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 15:40

    Been my headscratcher all week.

    Was between Lloyd, Hurn, Sicily. Out of 8 people who commented 5 said Hurn, 3 said Lloyd. I still don't have a clue LOL.

    FearTheBeard · 03/05/2019 at 15:52

    Gone Hurn. Few people make sense 😛

      Gibbs · 03/05/2019 at 17:37

      Ok Cheers mate! Im thinking of going Sicily, still reasonable value and has been in super form!

Richie Porte · 03/05/2019 at 15:34

Going either Butters or Atkins to Hayes then original plan was to trade Collins for T Kelky via Darcy Moore swing, should I stick with trading Collins or trade out Scrimshaw, or back Scrimshaw to have a week rest and come back and get a few more price rises. Also Butters or Atkins first. Cheers

TKC · 03/05/2019 at 15:37

With the back line carnage is it now worth considering trading out Whitfield for another premo, and bringing him back in once his price drops to ~$500k (after his bye maybe)? Wasn’t even considering that before finding out Scrimshaw and Clark are also missing this week.

Team is:

B.Smith, Z.Williams, Moore, Scrimshaw, Duursma, Hore – Whitfield, Clark

Cripps, Neale, Macrae, Fyfe, Liberatore, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Walsh – Constable, Butters, Stack

Grundy, Gawn – O’Brien

Dangerfield, Kelly, Marshall, Drew, Petruccelle, Setterfield – Parker, Burgess

Already switched Moore to the backline via Burgess, but will need to trade out Scrimshaw for another defender if I don’t trade Whitfield. Have 24 trades and trying to decide if it’s better to go Whitfield to Lloyd, or else Scrimshaw & Butters out for D.Rich & W.Hayes. Can’t quite afford Laird or Sicily with the second option.

Thoughts? Thanks!

    Derek · 03/05/2019 at 18:33

    I think Clark is playing

TelescopicCox · 03/05/2019 at 15:55

Is Constable > Fyfe worthwhile if it blows my budget? Leaves me exposed with 3 rookies on field down back and up forward (one is Moore)

cash_cows · 03/05/2019 at 16:18

Do I trade constable or butters to fyfe?
Both low BE but constable has higher ceiling but not playing

TheBenchmark25 · 03/05/2019 at 16:19

150k in the bank
Option 1
Atkins to Shai Bolton via dpp and
Scrimshaw to laird

Option 2
Atkins to Hayes
Constable to Fyfe

Option 2 leaves me with 1k left but will double downgrade next week

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 17:19

    2 for mine.
    The double down next week makes it ok.

Nathan · 03/05/2019 at 16:22

So far I've locked in Constable to Fyfe, but with Whitfield, Burgess and McKay out in my backline, I'm not sure what the best move is to avoid the donut. Any advice?

James · 03/05/2019 at 16:30

First trade is Constable to Hayes but I don’t know what to do with my 2nd one. $250k in the bank, 28 trades after Constable and was thinking of going Burgess to Young. Any other suggestions ?

Def: Laird, Williams, Whitfield, Wilkie, Duursma, Hore EMG: Burgess, Clark
Mid: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, Cogs, Brayshaw, Crouch, Stack, Constable EMG: Atkins, Sparrow, Scott
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn EMG: Sweet
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Drew, Parker, Petruccelle EMG: Setterfield, Schultz

Disco · 03/05/2019 at 16:46

Should I trade Butters, Atkins or Constable to Hayes? Was leaning towards trading Butters but looking at projected prices looks like he will make more money than atkins! What should I do?

BradleyTC99 · 03/05/2019 at 17:02

Hey guys, any ideas for what i can do would be great!

26 trades left, 80k in the bank.

Def: Hurn, Laird, Crisp, Williams, Duursma, Hore (Scrimshaw, Burgess)
Mid: Cripps, Macrae, Oliver, M Crouch, Libba, Walsh, Constable, Ross (Atkins, Gibbons, Scott)
Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (ROB)
Fwd: Danger, Heeney, Dunkley, Moore, Drew, Parker (Petrol jelly, Bines)

I am looking at getting in Josh Kelly next week as a little POD, since i cant get fyfe in this week. Any thoughts would be great guys!

hedski · 03/05/2019 at 17:07

Clark is in for Constable, only change for the cats.
That will save a lot of people from getting a 🍩.

    The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 17:10

    Phew! Needed that Hedski.
    D'ya think Constable gets back in soon?
    Not that I'm that bothered, he's just become Cogs. Thanks Charlie!

      hedski · 03/05/2019 at 17:34

      Not sure if he's rested for a faster playing Bombers side or his defensive pressure isnt up to scratch.
      Turning him to Hayes and Scrim to Laird most likely.
      Got you again this week in a different league Ranger, let's see if you can get me back after I done you last round 😉

        The Ranger · 03/05/2019 at 17:56

        You might get me again mate, got Whitfield out.
        Best of luck.

          hedski · 03/05/2019 at 20:40

          Of course I forgot to put Butters on the bench with the E.

TommyC99 · 03/05/2019 at 17:17

So im pretty set on Scott – Hayes this week. Non playing player – bubble rookie is a no brainer. The lack of cash pocketed is the only downside.

So i had planned to do that downgrade this week and next week look at Scrimshaw – Answerth and Atkins – Premo mid. But i noticed theres a number of rookies on the bubble NEXT week. I know going early is not good at all but i'll only be able to bring one in next week so would it be worth it to go early on one? Doesn't have to be answerth as i don't have a zero in my defense (yet)

    COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 17:53

    I went early on Answerth mate
    Scrimshaw to Answerth
    Constable to Hayes
    Building that Bank to upgrade in the coming weeks another double downgrade next week too I think at this stage

    What_Bear · 03/05/2019 at 19:38

    Be careful with Ainswerth. He may get dropped. next week when Andrews and Zac Bailey are back.

UpBeat · 03/05/2019 at 17:19

Who has the better JS out of Shai Bolton and Mitch Lewis?

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 18:49

    Flip of a coin. But Bolton went crazy in the Magoos last week and racked up 135 SC pts. So Im hoping he can get at least 3-4 games more and ton up at least once. In short, I think Bolton can make more $ more quickly, and is why Ive selected him

      Harrison · 03/05/2019 at 19:02

      noone is secure in richmonds lineup unfortunately

RoyWetard · 03/05/2019 at 17:22

Who scores more? Fyfe vs ADE and RIC and get T.Kelly in 2 weeks or T.Kelly vs ESS and NTH and get Fyfe/Macrae in 2 weeks.

    TommyC99 · 03/05/2019 at 17:50

    Fyfe is a more exciting trade in with his ceiling so id go him

      Norf4lyf · 03/05/2019 at 19:01

      tim should go big

Clarko · 03/05/2019 at 17:35

Constable -> Tim Kelly (swing drew mid)
Butters -> Hayes

Don't really want to drop constable but only other option is downgrading Scrimshaw which is risky with the defensive rookies at the moment.

Dash · 03/05/2019 at 18:07

Need some trade advice. Just not sure what to do. Facing a donut in the backline. 146K left
Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Collins, Clark, Duursma, (Scrimshaw, Clark)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Atkins, (Constable, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Parker, Petrucelle, (Setterfield, Balta)

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:17

    2 Clarks in the backline?….you could do a double downgrade, Constable to Hayes and Scrimshaw to Answerth a week early, would allow you to make some needed upgrades next week..
    Or Constable to Hayes and Scrimshaw to a premo if you can afford.

      Dash · 03/05/2019 at 18:20

      Thanks for the pick up. It was supposed to say (Scrimshaw, Burgess)

        Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:28

        Get burgess out would be my view. But scrim out is just as good

          Dash · 03/05/2019 at 18:30

          I could get a premo DEF in such as Sicily or even Lloyd. You reckon Scrimshaw and Constable out. Burgess just sitting there and I'll probably use him at the moment just to loophole. Thoughts?

            Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:40

            Tough one. Out of the 2 sicily for me but im yet to figure whom my top6 def are. Rich is calling for a spot and as much as i love his kick to handball ratio for supercoach scoring potential i just feel odd about him

              Dash · 03/05/2019 at 19:07

              What do you think of Constable – Bolton
              Scrimshaw – Sicily/Lloyd

Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:11

OPTION 1: i can go boak AND Lloyd but is it worth the huge outlay of 1.2mil.. seems way too much!
leave a bank of 187k

OPTION 2: i can get one of and a more budget option of a sicily/Laird or caleb daniel depending which of boak/lloyd i pick..
bank of 250-300ish depending on what combo of course

It's left me rattled all week

    Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:14

    Option 3.. both budget…

      Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:19

      Could include an OPTION 3 choosing two budget options but I feel i need one of Lloyd/Boak both extremely consistent and pumping out decent scores will both finish top 2-3 in there positions from here on.

        Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:27

        Lay out you target premos and if sicil laird or daniels are in your target state id get them while the price is friendly… getting lloyd a few weeks after he has a quieter game is an option that COULD come up… but i cant see him getting much more expensive

        hedski · 03/05/2019 at 19:26

        Laird and Daniel Mav, then get one of the others next week.

    Harrison · 03/05/2019 at 19:02

    option 2 with boak

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 19:28

    I look at it this way. They will arguably be top 2 in both their positions so while you have the money to get them in, I’d go for it. You may never have that opportunity again to get them in.
    They may go down in value but how many points do you miss out on while you wait? If I had the money I’d get Lloyd guaranteed but at present I have to wait because I simply can’t afford it

    Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 19:49

    thanks fellas i have passed on boak this week.
    appreciate the help

Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:14

Const and scrim out.
Kelly and fyfe in.

    Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:14

    Good or bad?

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:28

      Pretty good I think Gainsy.

        Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 18:31

        Feels a bit early on those 2 but my math says the 2 coming in are undervalued more than the rooks will accumulate more. Hoping it works out

          Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:33

          It will, you got em at the right time and what better time to trade the rooks out than when they're both out, 2 more premos you won't have to worry about getting in.

    Lekdog · 03/05/2019 at 18:44


      Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 18:52

      Maybe they meant Tim Kelly?

        Lekdog · 03/05/2019 at 19:42

        Josh yes

          Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 19:44

          i think Gainsy meant Tim not Josh lek

      Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 20:01

      Thanks mate. I meant the kelly of the tim kind.

Lekdog · 03/05/2019 at 18:44

Josh Kelly just been ruled out

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 18:51

    Thanks Lek. Not on my radar yet anyway. But SC reliability is starting to become a issue with him

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 18:55

    Cheers mate…thought you meant Tim there for a minute!!

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 18:57

    Its definitely JOSH and not TIM? If Josh Kelly, maybe Hately comes into the side?? *fingers crossed*

    Bob · 04/05/2019 at 07:59

    This guy can't be trusted to be an elite premo in our team for a whole season

    Kewbie Bear · 04/05/2019 at 09:49

    Hately in is a big silver lining

Froggy · 03/05/2019 at 19:03

Thinking of trading the FLASH for Toby Greene, is he worth the gamble ??

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 19:07


    dontblushbaby · 03/05/2019 at 21:25

    Trust your gut Froggy , I am considering taking the risk , anyway who's Flash mate ?

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:29

      Gotta love a mystery ay DBB?…The Flash!…I'm considering trading Zardoz, to Rumplestiltskin.

Bristle · 03/05/2019 at 19:06

Which 2 players to bench out of Petrol, Bolton, Parker and Setterfield?

Nathan · 03/05/2019 at 19:07

Thoughts on Joyce vs Answerth job security? Not really keen on Young so I might go a week early on one of these guys. Thoughts?

    COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 19:08

    I went a week early on answerth Brisbane side looks more settled and answetth plays a different role to Harris Andrews

      What_Bear · 03/05/2019 at 19:44

      Yes but Bailey will be back next week, or the week after

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 19:08

    Dont go a week early would be my suggestion. Answerth has a higher ceiling, but poorer JS

Kelly18 · 03/05/2019 at 19:09

should i trade out Constable or Miles for Fyffe

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 19:17


    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 19:40

    Miles is garbage when you consider the lifeline he's been thrown, hardly made any money in 4 games, you don't need a spud like that dragging your midfield scores down.
    Gotta get rid of him.

      Kelly18 · 03/05/2019 at 19:43

      tanks ditched Miles will use Constable as a loophole for this week

COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 19:09

Using my first two trades this week
Double Downgrade to Build that bank!
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Constable to Hayes


Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 19:12

Hately IN for Josh Kelly! Hopefully he becomes another bubble boy we can choose from next week. I love trading season

Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 19:20

Grundy VC…. Dont let me down

    UpBeat · 03/05/2019 at 19:31

    Remember Port beat up Gawn

      Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 20:27

      1/4 time… Grundy 34pts v Lycett -1pts

    dontblushbaby · 03/05/2019 at 19:32

    Yep, me too, the loop is very awkward this round

TelescopicCox · 03/05/2019 at 19:30

Best trade in option? Thinking of Constable and Petrucelle/Atkins for Hayes and a Premo

A – Fyfe
B – Laird
C – Sicily
D – J.Cameron (POD)

ABC mean i have Petrucelle as F6, and move Gibbons off field
D means I move Drew to F6, but have to play both Gibbons and Hayes

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 20:33

    I was going Cameron this week until Constable was dropped. Have to strengthen the mids now as I don’t want Atkins or Setterfield onfield

Shake_n_bake · 03/05/2019 at 19:47

Who is everybody putting there vc and capt on?

    KSinny · 03/05/2019 at 19:47

    Got Boak in this week and gonna see if he can go big in his 250th

    Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 19:50

    gawn into cripps also.
    North are rubbish cripps might go huge

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 19:54

    V on Gawn, C on Bines or Danger, Neale, Fyfe, Cripps

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:23

      Yeah for sure mate, Kent I think, he's just so consistent, thanks for your outdoor dunny dags….lol

    JohnDJ59 · 03/05/2019 at 19:56

    Gawn VC, Cripps C.

      dontblushbaby · 03/05/2019 at 20:15

      Grundy into Neale

    Derek · 03/05/2019 at 20:28

    Grundy VC

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 20:31

    Maybe Neale into Cripps

    Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 00:03

    I went with Gawn into Cripps aswell

Beezneez · 03/05/2019 at 19:51

Lot of players in front of him and Brown Douglas due back soon. Hard to choose him in front of Jones and Poholke

    Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 10:09

    Ps Mchenry Crows 2nd draft pick was best for the 2's last night. Chance Jones just behind him.

      Kewbie Bear · 04/05/2019 at 10:28

      Stengle has been very consistent as well

Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 20:18

treloar at 44% TOG this is concerning after he missed a midweek training and now limited game time

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 20:20

    just got a nice Goal assist, he'll probably still ton up.

      Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 20:48

      1 kick 7 Handballs.
      This is bad

        Brn · 03/05/2019 at 21:04

        Actually had a lot of TOG, just having a rough game. Pendles 72 sc at half time – takes me back about 4 years to when he was lyfe

          Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:14

          Pendles could still be relevant, he might be trying to go out with a bang, if his wife instructed him to quit Football.

          Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:17

          yeah jumped up to 71% TOG now got alot more time in the 2nd quarter but still below avg. hopefully a big 2nd half from treloar here

            Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 00:03

            Reckon he'll be ok Mav, he's a ball hoggy piglet, loves getting it and even if he's butchering it, can still ton up regularly.
            Rarely goes missing in games which is what you want.

    TelescopicCox · 03/05/2019 at 23:53

    Treloar went bang once Adams went off. Could be in for a good run coming up if Adams missing time

Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 20:28

Sometimes it’s a bad thing living in SA as all you hear about is the Crows and Power on the tv and radio. I mistakenly listened to the dribble of the Power big men giving it to Grundy for tonight’s game. It seems like they sent kids over to try and trouble him. I didn’t put the vc on him because of this. But to give credit where it is due, he is by far at present the best ruck in the competition.

    Brn · 03/05/2019 at 21:02

    There will be better VC and C options than grundy this week. No sweat

    JohnDJ59 · 03/05/2019 at 21:05

    Hi Holty, the fact that Port were playing the Pies this week was the main reason I traded out Lycett this week, he was going to start losing money and had done his job as a R2/F6. I traded O'Brien in on the bubble in round five for the R2 spot.

redherringfc · 03/05/2019 at 20:47

good to see Butters got his 1st point at the 12 minute mark in the 2nd quarter. At this rate he might score 3.

Think I’ll throw Scott and Burgess on field so I can blame my poor score on a couple of 🍩 🍩.

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 20:58

    Or you could change the slogan to…"i can't believe it's not Butters scoring shit all"….lol.
    But he could still end up on 50…which is about rookie par.

    COREYSC · 03/05/2019 at 21:52

    Butters has so much talent but every time he gets the ball it’s like his mind is going 100km/h and he tried to do too much with the ball when he was it too! Yet still with all the talent I Place him on my field and wonder why I do it haha

      redherringfc · 03/05/2019 at 22:08

      Pretty happy I put him on the bench with the E on him. Going to have to rely on Gibbons to get something now, I guess.

Brn · 03/05/2019 at 20:59

Great to see drew from my local koroit vic doing well. Same score as boak at half time. Know him well and deserved his shot 🙂

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 21:03

    Yep… 39pts from THREE disposals!!!

      dontblushbaby · 03/05/2019 at 21:07

      Yeah but 6 tackles

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:12

    What's a Koroit?

      hedski · 03/05/2019 at 21:23

      It's where I was born Russty, just outside Warrnambool.
      Played juniors there with Jonno Brown way back.

        Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:31

        Ah ok mate, no disrespect….you must be a hard headed mofo like Jono , hardhead Brown is 🙂

          hedski · 03/05/2019 at 22:00

          None taken mate, was a great place to grow up.
          Browny was parked in the square when he was 8 in under 13's, kicked a bag every game.

    hedski · 03/05/2019 at 21:24

    Go Saints 👍

Derek · 03/05/2019 at 21:05

Moore gets his standard 52pts first half. Now we watch as he struggles to 78.

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 21:08

    Well, he was on 48 at 1/4 time! So he is already stopping :/

      Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 21:11

      To be fair, he got his hands on the ball several times that 1/4 but couldn’t quite get clean disposals due to the immediate pressure on him

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:11

    Maybe 82, if he can stop checking his hair for long enough.

    Saritz · 03/05/2019 at 21:52

    80 at 3/4 time. Can he hit triple figures??

      Derek · 03/05/2019 at 23:09

      He gave away 2 Free kicks in last 90 seconds. So close

        Tommy · 03/05/2019 at 23:38

        Got robbed Derek! Had a great game!

dontblushbaby · 03/05/2019 at 21:12

Pendles getting some nice numbers lately ? could he be a top 8 Mid ?

Connor · 03/05/2019 at 21:42

Stephenson has had 2 kicks since QT for 20+ points .. sometimes I just don’t get this game

Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 21:51

Moore's now on 80…that means he must score -1 in the last and end up on 79 LOL

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 21:56

    Russty 🤫 don’t jinx it

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:00

      I'm hoping I do the opposite mate! 🙂

        Maverick_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:41

        CD got his 7 & 9 mixed around this week russty

          Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:45

          Hahha happy with that stuff up mate.

Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:17

Guessing Rocky isn't a top 8 mid after all…slow game this week, might've run out of gas.

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 22:30

    Hard to say mate. Based on tonight you’d think no. Wouldn’t be surprised if he has a niggle or something as didn’t see him in the midfield and certainly no centre bounces in the 2nd half.

    Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 22:30

    Didnt see it. Was he a butcher or just tagged out?

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:32

      I think he spent a fair bit of time in the fwd line Gainsy. Plus Port got pumped.

        Gainsy · 03/05/2019 at 22:50

        Thanks mate. The old 'play our best midfielder up forward when we're getting pumped' trick

          Derek · 03/05/2019 at 23:07

          He went forward when Ebert went off.

          Ports next 5 games will suite Rocky, Pues are too quick for him

    Tommy · 03/05/2019 at 23:46

    He looked very slow tonight! Not sure whether he’s got a niggle or not but wasnt covering the ground well at all. Glad I didn’t trade him in!

Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 22:32

Is Westhoff back?

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:34

    Could be Holty…hopefully, I took the chance this week.

Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:33

Took the plunge on bringing Westy in this week, pretty happy with his score tonight, hopefully he's turned it around now, handy ruck cover too.

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/05/2019 at 22:39

    Good stuff Russty! You cagey fox!! No guts no glory!

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:40

      Same to you bud…risky but going ok so far! 🙂

      Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:45

      Could've gotten 130 if he could've kicked straight tonight TH.

        Browncow · 03/05/2019 at 22:57

        And he was on 6 points at quarter time. You must have been ready to rage trade.

          Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 23:00

          Nah mate, was just hoping I didn't make a huge mistake haha, too low on trades for anymore rage trades.

        TOPHAWK1 · 03/05/2019 at 23:02

        Come on Russty! Lets not get greedy now. LOL

          Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 23:06

          True mate, we should be thankful he didn't get a 49 or some such crud.

    Holty01 · 03/05/2019 at 22:39

    Awesome mate

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 15:09

    Well played Russty.

    Hoff was always in my plans until O’Brien cam along and gave us ruck cover.

    Glad I didn’t get Lycett, not being #1 ruck is killing him.

    Hoff will need another good game next week then his draw almost says get him. Interesting.

      Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 15:48

      Cheers Derek, looks like it could be a close finish there at the G, hope you wore your pink socks mate.
      Fingers crossed Hoff can keep it going, otherwise I'll be stuck with a spud.

TOPHAWK1 · 03/05/2019 at 22:35

Who else traded the HOFF in this week? BANG!

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 22:36


      TOPHAWK1 · 03/05/2019 at 23:01

      Pour yourself another drink mate. Enjoy this!

        Tommy · 03/05/2019 at 23:37

        Shark move boys, nice one!

    KeenButClueless · 03/05/2019 at 22:43

    I chickened out. If Constable plays, then I trade Scott. Westhoff was in! Constable out, so I traded him and could afford more.

    hedski · 03/05/2019 at 23:13

    What will he cost next week TH?
    Could be a cheap Parker upgrade.

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/05/2019 at 11:13

      I reckon he will jump to about $420K. Had a BE of 64 and scored 108. Still very cheap next week mate.

        hedski · 04/05/2019 at 11:40


Hawks · 03/05/2019 at 23:23

Some loop hole choices-

Def – do I take Duursma's 68 or risk it on Joyce of StK

Mid – do I take Drew's 69 or risk it on Gibbons

Any thoughts welcomed

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 23:27

    Heya Hawks, Take em both I say, better off banking 2 x high 60's scores than risking 2 x 30's.
    Speaking of…would you take Drew's 69 or take the gamble Ross will do better?
    Any opinions welcome.

      Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 07:32

      I like Ross, should be good for 75-85

    Tommy · 03/05/2019 at 23:43

    I’d be taking both hawk

    JohnDJ59 · 03/05/2019 at 23:44

    65 is my cut off score for rookies, so I would be taking both.

      Derek · 04/05/2019 at 01:16


Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 23:28

All's not lost mate, just gotta choose the right Cap…who you thinking of?

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 00:10

    Gawn likes playing against McEvoy at the G mate. Check the history.

Tommy · 03/05/2019 at 23:31

Not taking grundys score. Captain danger, gawn, Fyfe or Cripps?

    Frank · 03/05/2019 at 23:40

    Probably Cripps out of those…

    Russty_ · 03/05/2019 at 23:52

    Giday Tommy, I think Gawn might be the go mate, average 128.3 against the Hawks (McEvoy) from 4 games….
    Cripps might struggle to get as much of it as usual with some of Carlton's key defensive men out..averaging 100 against them for 4 games played.
    Fyfe averages 115 against the Crows at Adelaide Oval…from 7 games played.
    Danger averages 95.3 against the Bombers at the MCG…pretty surprisingly low that from 12 games.
    To narrow it down from historical figures, I'd say Gawn or Fyfe.

      Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 00:10

      Agree Gawn.

      Hawks don't defender the ruckman around the grounds, they are happy to roll the dice, and bet that McEvoy will punish the opposition more than the opposing ruckman will.

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:53

    Did Grundy just watch most of the last quarter from the bench? Stupid VC choice.

Frank · 03/05/2019 at 23:39

Who else has jumped on Hayes? Is he worth it?

    Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 00:13

    No I went Shae Bolton in the forward line, and moved Drew to the Mids instead of getting Hayes.

    May take a look at Lienert next week.

      Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 00:16

      Just took a look at Lienerts price, no need to look further

    RohanJ · 04/05/2019 at 10:47

    I’ve gone Hayes. As a dog’s fan, I reckon he’s got oknjob security. Should get a few games into him but they’ll only be 40-50s. Maybe with some AFL experience, he’ll rise. Don’t reckon he’ll play every week for the rest of the year – hoping for the next 3-4 anything else is a bonus!

TBone_9 · 04/05/2019 at 00:45

Had the plan to trade Butters out and get Fyfe in, but with Constable getting dropped decided to trade him up instead. Gotta love getting a 30 onfield! Ah well, it’s a long weekend ahead

    DavidC · 04/05/2019 at 08:11

    I've got the 'e' on him but now with LDU out I will have to trade or I will get his score.

Stupid Coach · 04/05/2019 at 08:28

Do I trade Scott to Hayes and Constable to T Kelly (via Settlefield DPP) which leaves $17k in the bank and 22 trades or just the first trade and get T Kelly in next week. Originally wanted to go Constable to Fyfe but don't have enough cash and can't find a mid under $500k worth getting.

Dash · 04/05/2019 at 09:01

Bolton or Hayes
Lloyd or Sicily

Who goes out of Scrimshaw, Constable, Burgess

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:16

    Burgess is handy DPP if you have Moore. Constable will make a bit more coin. Scrimshaw needed the rest and could be good after a week off.

    I’m getting rid of Burgess. Think he will struggle to get many games.

      Dash · 04/05/2019 at 11:22

      I'm holding a donut in the backline with Scrimshaw, Whitfield, Burgess out so was thinking of 1 up 1 down or just trade burgess to young. Not sure that's worth it.

        Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:50

        You will have to trade Scrimshaw to Laird/Sicily. Do you have cash to do that

          Dash · 04/05/2019 at 12:01

          I'll have to make a downgrade too

    Cot Pugwash · 04/05/2019 at 11:28

    Bolton / kicks more goals, tackles more.
    Sicily / Price

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:40

    Sicily is scoring better than Laird. Against Melb’s poor kicking this week he could go very large. Hawks have better bye round.

    Laird is clearly scoring less than he should. Averaging less than 5 marks a game. I feel that Crows are starting to sort themselves out and if they go back to Laird in defence he will bounce back.

    Both should be top 6 defenders from here on.

    I’m getting Laird purely on his price. If I trade out Burgess I’m $4k shirt for Sicily and didn’t want to trade Scrimshaw.

    If money not an issue, I’d go Sicily in current form, but very happy with Laird as he as more improvement

Juddy · 04/05/2019 at 09:22

Daniel or kelly or Cameron
Consistency & nice bye. V yo-yo scores easy draw BAD bye V KPP but easy draw ahead nice bye

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:46

    Kelly by a fair margin. Unless his bye is a problem.

    I was super keen on Cameron pre season and got him early in all my draft teams, but just could pick a key forward in my classic team.

    GWS have an insane draw to the byes.

    GWS last 4 games of season, our SC finals are, well, just so mouth watering you will want every GWS player.

    I’m passing on Fyfe. That elbow just worries me too much, and will get JKelly next week.

      Derek · 04/05/2019 at 11:47

      Couldn’t pick Cameron

        Juddy · 04/05/2019 at 11:58

        It’s exsctly that reason i don’t want to lock in kelly is that dreaded bye. As I want to bring in Lloyd down back I could go Sicily but I just don’t know

TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 09:38

Thoughts on Shai Bolton? Could bring him in for Parker or just hold out for next week as there looks like quite a few downgrade targets?

BradleyTC99 · 04/05/2019 at 10:31

Hey community, i hadn't really thought about him but what are our opinions on Bolton? Can we trust his JS? I've still got 1 trade up my sleeve this week and can go parker – Bolton

Mick · 04/05/2019 at 11:01

Thoughts on Joyce's job security at St Kilda?

    Twilightingale · 05/05/2019 at 00:42

    Looks like he’ll only play when Brown doesn’t. Hard to recommend him.

Tommy · 04/05/2019 at 11:22

Who to bench out of Petrucelle, Bolton or Parker?

    Mick · 04/05/2019 at 11:25

    Parker I'd say

    Cpt Pugwash · 04/05/2019 at 11:26

    Parker definitely

TelescopicCox · 04/05/2019 at 12:35

Last minute trade decision. Any tips:

A Atkins and Petrucelle to Hayes and Daniel
B Atkins and Constable to Fyfe and Hayes

    The Ranger · 04/05/2019 at 12:47

    B for mine.

    Mr_Pink_ · 04/05/2019 at 12:52

    B definitely. Question marks around Caleb Daniel's current role continuing down back – he has been found out defensively at times – and Constable's immediate future in the Cats team. A big concern not being named in the emergencies with guys like Parsons, Parfitt named and S. Selwood waiting in the wings.

      hedski · 04/05/2019 at 15:15

      Constable back on the emergency list now that Jelwood has been withdrawn Pinky, Parfitt comes in.
      Not that it matters to me since I just traded him to Hayes.

        Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 22:46

        I really need Constable to stay out cos I've looped him to take Stack's 98. I'm worried there may be a late change and he could come in. I may have to change my intended trade of Setterfield to T Kelly fwd. to Gibbons to T Kelly and swing Setterfield to the mids. Anyone else with the same concern? Sounds like a no brainer but I was banking on Gibbons to Fyfe next week cos he ( Gibbons) should increase about about 20 odd thousand k's.

          hedski · 04/05/2019 at 22:52

          I don't think Constable will get a gig Beez, you should be safe

COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 13:00

I need some advice community
Scrimshaw to Answerth
Constable to Hayes
Atkins to Hayes
Constable to Hatley

Basically I have to go early on either Answerth or Hatley

    Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 13:12

    hateley scored well in JLT and Rd5 but clearly has no JS it took jkelly out to get him a second game after a solid debut..
    so Id go the option 1.

      COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 13:13

      Answerth should hold his spot?

Snorkle · 04/05/2019 at 13:08

Help please
Take Dursma 69 or gamble on Baker
Thx in advance

    COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 13:19

    Take Duursma 69

    BBQ · 04/05/2019 at 13:19

    I would stick with the 69, gambling on getting another 20 max while you could lose out on 50.

Snorkl · 04/05/2019 at 13:10

Sorry ment drew- 69 or play baker

    COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 13:19

    Take Drew 69😉

Snorkle · 04/05/2019 at 13:21

Done boys thx 69 it is, hopefully a good omen for tonight lol

TBone_9 · 04/05/2019 at 15:08

Don’t want to jynx it but nice start for Lockhart and Parker! Cmon boys, keep up the hard work!!

Derek · 04/05/2019 at 15:12

Hey NDD. I’m at the dees hawks game today. Down from Sydney for the day. Your blokes can not kick.

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 17:47

    I haven’t been to parramatta, just stay in the shire and cheer on the sharkies.

    I need to re think my JKelly for next week. Out this week, not good. Won’t drop the few dollars I wanted, plus he is now an injury concern.

    Fyfe will be good, but I didn’t consider him at all pre season with his elbow. Doesn’t seem to be worry him but you never know what he is having to do each week to look after it and eventually it fails. Oh well, done my trades for this week and got Laird in.

Holty01 · 04/05/2019 at 15:18

Now if Hately continues this after halftime and gets dropped again next week, GWS really mustn’t rate the kid. He looks an already made footballer.

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 15:53

    For sure Holty, looks a very good young player, only reason must be there's just no room for him in there.

    Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 22:34

    Played good football for Centrals in the SANFL last year. GWS lucky to get him with their pick. Can't understand why he's not getting more of a go atm.

Holty01 · 04/05/2019 at 15:20

I’m 38, married and have 2 little kids. The 69s written on this page the last hour are the only ones I see these days.

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 19:38

    Heeney gets a 69 as well

      Inappropriate · 04/05/2019 at 23:07

      But wasn't that with horse?

Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 16:22

Oliver played the least minutes out of every single Melbourne player!! Last 5 mins on the pine when the game was up for grabs. Really week effort.

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 17:41

    I was just behind the interchange, he was standing there for 5 mins waving his arms, but no one could get off. He had a slow start, a few handballs missing targets, but was very good in 3rd quarter.

Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 16:24

Gawn takes two strong grabs in the last 5 minutes aswell gets -5.

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:27

    I noticed that too Shake,looks like it's delayed today, now on 127

      Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 16:38

      That’s a bit more like it

Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:29

brayshaw for three weeks i've held held held now today was the final straw. Viney out and still couldn't ton up!

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:33

    Don't blame ya Mav, he has been disappointing and started out great too in the match, I punted him weeks ago and glad I did.

      Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:40

      yeah paint the fence this week. I should've done the same mate but just kept telling myself he'd come good as he wasn't losing much $$. but today was his last straw

    hedski · 04/05/2019 at 16:39

    Yeah it hurts Mav but I'm just gonna hold and hope he comes good or luxury trade when the rookies are upgraded.

      Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 17:02

      your stronger than me Hedski. if no more glaring holes in my 22 show up between now and sunday night he's turning into neale, macrae, jkelly or fyfe. i seem to be one uber short in the guts with oliver & brayshaw under performing everyweek

        hedski · 04/05/2019 at 17:56

        I have Cogs and Bray doing the same, Cogs been serviceable but not hitting the heights I need.

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/05/2019 at 16:36

Who to captain after Gawn VC failure? Fyfe Cripps or Macrae? Leaning towards Cripps at the moment, reckon he can do some damage with Ben Jacobs out of the side, although im worried that Zeibell and Anderson will double team him like they did Rockliff last week

    Ken · 04/05/2019 at 16:38

    127 is still a good captaincy score

    JohnDJ59 · 04/05/2019 at 16:44

    I'm taking the 127 since 125 is my cut off score.

      Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:48

      Same here John..127 is a solid score, can relax about it now.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 04/05/2019 at 16:57

      130 is usually my cut off, but that is depending on if there's other good captaincy options. I suppose 127 really isn't too bad

        Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 17:58


        130 is an acceptable VC score, and 127 'really isn't too bad'. Its 3 pts difference, 127 is an excellent score, and totally acceptable to use for the big C

          AuroraBorealis?! · 04/05/2019 at 18:11

          Well, yeah. The idea of having a cutoff is to establish a score at which you take the loophole option. 3 points difference is nothing, but then you could say that if your cutoff was 125, that taking a score of 122 is fine, and so on and so forth, until your score could be barely above 100. A cut off point is just an arbitrary framework to use for deciding a C score, I just use 130 as a vague idea, you have to choose a bottom line somewhere.

      hedski · 04/05/2019 at 18:04

      I'm starting to lean towards your 125+ now JD after starting the season with a 130+ cutoff, been a few that have fell thru after not banking decent scores.
      At the moment I'm watching how Neale scores as a few of my opponents have the C on him and I don't have him.
      Will probably take Gawn.

        JohnDJ59 · 04/05/2019 at 19:29

        Hi hedski, you won't regret it, I've used that score for a few years now and it's just a lot easier, I don't even have to think about it, 125 and over I take and anything under 125 means I go with who I have the C on.

    Stupid Coach · 04/05/2019 at 17:00

    I have the same dilemma Aurora. One of my league opponents had Gawn as Captain while another had Grundy so I am leaning towards taking Gawn's score so that I don't lose ground/slightly make up ground. However, I am also very tempted to leave it on Cripps based on how poorly North are playing.

    JugHead · 04/05/2019 at 18:27

    My opponent has Neale as captain. I don't have Neale.
    Gunna stick with Max for now, and wait and see if Neale goes real big (looking a bit unlikely). If not I'll stick with Max.
    If Neale goes nuts, only then will I think about switching to Fyfe tomorrow.

      Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 18:35

      He'd probably need to get off 67 first, I'd take Gawn's score.

        JugHead · 04/05/2019 at 18:40

        Just checked his current score. Yeah………..
        Didn't think I'd be able to afford him now. There might be an opportunity coming up soon.

Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 16:57

Yeah good ugly win mate but they were desperate to defend at the end and that got em over the line.
Lockhart did well today, unfortunately I don't get his score, should've loopholed Duursma with Burgess but at least had Hore on field.

Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 17:04

Old news parfett comes in for Selwood

    hedski · 04/05/2019 at 18:06

    Go cats.
    Got you in Legends and Jungleland draft this week Shaker, good luck mate think you'll cover me 👍

      Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 18:15

      Nah just realised l had Kelly as capt

        Shake_n_bake · 04/05/2019 at 18:19

        P.s and just looked Beems vc only got 60!! Haha 😂

          hedski · 04/05/2019 at 18:51

          Oh crap. I thought Beams had 120 and it hadn't been doubled yet!!!

Tommy · 04/05/2019 at 17:17

Bloody hawks stuffed my tip. Good to see the dees get up though, hopefully they can build a bit of momentum off that. Well done Lockhart, doesn’t make me feel so stupid anymore.

hedski · 04/05/2019 at 17:57

Great grinding win NDD, tipped your boys this week. 👍

Holty01 · 04/05/2019 at 18:01

To the Lockhart owners who bought him in last week and were upset with their decision, amazing what 1 week will do.🤩

    AuroraBorealis?! · 04/05/2019 at 18:12

    Yeah pretty happy at the moment Holty

      hedski · 04/05/2019 at 18:51


    Mr_Pink_ · 04/05/2019 at 18:52

    Seemed to play a different role this week Holty – a lot more mid/forward rather than stuck as a crumbing I50 forward

    Beezneez · 04/05/2019 at 22:21

    Wish I could have loopholed him with Whitfield and Hore but game timing wouldn't allow it..

    Doc_1 · 05/05/2019 at 12:19

    Was happy last week. Bonus he’s now pumping out scores like that.
    $102k def/mid swing just needs to play to be worth it IMO. Job security the key.

Hawks · 04/05/2019 at 18:16

Anyone else get Rich in this week?

    Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 18:19

    nope went that flog from hawthorn instead :'( can't win them all i guess

TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 18:36

A late out and constable still couldn't get in the side? Little worrying but i think im still set on punting Scott instead. If Hately is named next week and Constable isnt punting him without losing the scoring potential at M6 looks real nice

    dontblushbaby · 04/05/2019 at 20:17

    There might be more involved with Constable , I've only heard a rumour , but not going to confirm or deny

      TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 22:03

      I've heard he has a little knock. Don't know why it would say omitted tho

TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 18:43

Whats up with Heeney? I'm not watching the game but checked scores and hes scored 4pts in a 35min quarter

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 18:57

    On the odd occasion when he does touch it, he delivers it straight to the opposition. 5 clangers.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/05/2019 at 19:05

    Heeney is dropping a massive turd. Clangers and just running around in circles.

TOPHAWK1 · 04/05/2019 at 19:07

Turds littering the SC landscape this week. Sicily, Neale, Brayshaw, Heeney, Lloyd, and counting. VC disasters. This round is turning into a blood bath.

    TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 19:20

    Glad i only have Heeney out of that bunch. Praying Libba, Dunks and Macrae don't join them tonight

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/05/2019 at 19:25

      Only have the one in Sicily. He was bloody lucky to get 80.

    Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 19:26

    Neale and Lloyd not too bad in the end mate, Heeney was very average today.

      Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 20:16

      Libba adding to the turds what is his job role has it changed the last 2-3 weeks?

        Russty_ · 04/05/2019 at 20:18

        I haven't even seen him…I have Daniel as well, both don't seem to be in the game much, always the second half I guess!

        Browncow · 04/05/2019 at 20:39

        He looked lost last week amongst the bigger Freo mids. Hardly seen him tonight. Thought about the trade but Whitfield/Scrimshaw made that impossible. How good does Stack look?

Ja191 · 04/05/2019 at 19:28

why is neale always 30 sc above his dt i don't get it

    Hawks · 05/05/2019 at 13:33

    Most of his disposals are contested, and some are clearances.

    SC is a more realistic indication of a players impact on the game.

Tommo09 · 04/05/2019 at 20:40

Cripps Danger or Fyfe C?

    Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 21:36

    Cripps may have a field day against norths avg midfield…
    I've taken Gawns VC but did have the C on crippa before that

Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 21:33

looks like dunkley has got those midfield minutes back the last couple weeks. has looked very good tonight, the 2nd half especially

    COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 22:12

    Maybe he isn’t the Jack Billings of 2019 I’m glad I held him

TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 21:40

Surely time for Libba to go? Looked well below his standards tonight

    Maverick_ · 04/05/2019 at 21:46

    He's on my shortlist for sure Tommy.
    was selected as a stepping stone so his probably done his job for us and not far away from being upgraded

    Jeffrey · 04/05/2019 at 22:10

    Yep it’s time to go

    Libba to Macrae

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 22:50

    Yep. Libba to Boak next week. I can’t go without Boak for any longer. Saw Travis at breakfast this morning at the hotel I was staying at and told him I was going to get him in my SuperCoach team next week. So I have to now.

      TommyC99 · 04/05/2019 at 23:46

      Like it Derek. Although next week looks promising on the rookie front. Could it be a double downgrade week? Libba should have a high BE tho so might not have a choice

cash_cows · 04/05/2019 at 21:55

Think i'm dropping my VC limit to 120 because this is so frustrating.

TKC · 04/05/2019 at 22:07

Do I replace either Walsh or B.Crouch with Stack’s 95, or leave them on the field? Nice score for an emergency…..

    Pranav · 04/05/2019 at 22:26

    I’d definitely take it 95 is a really good score. The benching part is hard but I’d bench crouch

    Derek · 04/05/2019 at 22:47

    Take it

    JEL · 04/05/2019 at 23:49

    Same dilemma. Definitely taking it, leaning towards Walsh.
    He's been scaled to 103, so I'm not letting that go.
    Just hope to make the right call regarding who to bench.

    Twilightingale · 05/05/2019 at 00:37

    I’d bench Walsh for a guaranteed 103. B Crouch has a much high ceiling, although in saying that hasn’t gone big this year despite good numbers.

    If Walsh scored 103 you would take that any day, why risk the guaranteed points. If Walsh outscores Stack, unlikely it’ll be by much

    DavidC · 05/05/2019 at 06:59

    Yeh, take it. Bench Walsh.

      TKC · 05/05/2019 at 14:29

      B.Crouch better have a blinder, as Walsh sure is – 62 at half time! May have benched the wrong one 🙁

Jeffrey · 04/05/2019 at 22:09

It’s make or break:

I’m down atm in my comp

My competitor has taken Gawns score as VC as C

I have either Danger or Cripps to choose from?

Who is the best option, Selwood is out, Cripps vs North

Who would you choose to go BIG?

    Paul · 04/05/2019 at 23:31

    Danger will go huge tomorrow, Cripps maybe tagged

      Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 09:58

      Who do Nth have to tag? I don’t know anyone playing who has tagged. Maybe Ziebell?

        Paul · 05/05/2019 at 13:38

        Cunnington is finishing Cripps

    Sergio · 04/05/2019 at 23:49


COREYSC · 04/05/2019 at 22:15

After Hayes 49, looks like I’ll have to roll the dice on Gibbons tomorrow and Hope Cripps pulls through as skipper not enough from Macrae tonight

    Pranav · 04/05/2019 at 22:24

    Did the same thing VC macrae E Hayes gonna keep gibbons on field and put the C on cripps

      Derek · 04/05/2019 at 22:53

      I had E on Hayes. But I can still choose between Atkins or Gibbons?

      Going Danger as C

        hedski · 04/05/2019 at 22:56

        Tossing up Atkins and Gibbons as well Derek.
        Thinking Gibbons even though I think the roos will win.

          COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 07:05

          I’m heading down to the G today Hedski watch the boys! Hopefully they get the job done today against the Bombers

        Pranav · 04/05/2019 at 23:02

        I have Atkins as well but we haven’t seen the ceiling from Atkins that gibbons had in his one good game

        COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 07:04

        I thought Atkins’ role had changed in the Easter Monday game he played a lot of midfield time and scored in the 70’s but Gibbons’ role has changed to high half forward and its remained the same so i’ll Go with Gibbons

    Saritz · 05/05/2019 at 08:00

    Back in Gibbons. With the outs I suspect he’ll get some good mid time.

Derek · 04/05/2019 at 23:26

Shake. I see we are Head 2 head again this week, this time in Guns and Rookies league.

With Sunday games to come, predicted scores are 1 point different.

Looks like you only have Walsh +344, I have Danger, Merrett, Sloane and Laird.

You have Danger but I have him as C.

Another thriller

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 10:38

    We have played against each other 4 weeks in a row in different leagues. Shake leads 1-2. Most weeks only separated by a few points.

      Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 10:46

      Did you trade Walsh for Hayes this week Derek? Walsh to ton up today 😉

        Derek · 05/05/2019 at 11:02

        Walsh and Burgess out for Laird and Hayes this week.

        Been a big fan of Walsh, never left my pre season team. Sad to see him go.

        He was at M8, I had Rocky at M6 and Libba at M7, the other two seemed more like keepers… maybe. Needed a bit of room in the guts for some cash and to fit JKelly next week (those plans just got shelved) Missed all the Richmond boys, so jumped on Hayes.

          Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 11:54

          only 1 trade so far this week Skrimshaw for Sicily mainly purely for buy rds. Could pull the trigger on Walsh to Fyfe still thou but most likely with a low BE will stick with what l have. Good luck. I might join you behind ur couch 🛋

            Derek · 05/05/2019 at 14:36

            Gee Walsh a good player

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 12:10

    Maybe a late switch to Crips as C is in the cards

      Shake_n_bake · 06/05/2019 at 06:53

      3-1 Derek but tough luck with ur capt choice. Always next time.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 05/05/2019 at 17:24

    god i hope you didn't keep the C on Danger Derek

      JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 17:45

      He did.

        hedski · 05/05/2019 at 18:38

        Playing Derek twice.
        Hard to get a win against him I'll take it.

Ken · 04/05/2019 at 23:39

Thoughts on Bont as a top 8 mid this season?

    Holty01 · 04/05/2019 at 23:48


Mark Fawcett · 05/05/2019 at 06:36

Gone early on Walsh and traded him and Constable to Fyfe & Hayes. Hoping this doesn't bite me hard??!! 189,000 left over. Upgrade Libba next week

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 10:46

    Can’t see why that would bite you. Fyfe should our score Walsh

    I traded Walsh to Laird this week.

    Wanted Sicily but that meant trading out Libba, there is a bite mark

COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 07:06

I feel like every round this season has been a real
Scrap to get to 2,150-2,250 range of a score

    Saritz · 05/05/2019 at 07:58

    I’m struggling this week. I may not even get 2150! Looks like a fall outside the top 1000 🙁

    JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 10:57

    Apart from round five, when I scored 2248, I seem stuck in a 2100 – 2150 range.

TelescopicCox · 05/05/2019 at 08:28

Can we talk about Balta’s 59! He’s actually going to make some money

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/05/2019 at 09:00

Ups and downs.

Just logged on and got a rippa of a surprise to see Lockhart with an 80 against hos name. Covers Whitfield.

Butters with a 30 errk .

The Ranger · 05/05/2019 at 09:03

Did anyone watch the Doggies game?
Did Libba and Dunkley swap positions?

    Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 09:17

    I watched it to half time … Dunkley was playing mid whilst Bont played mostly forward… Libba seemed to be lost .. seems like he was told to tag Cotchin.. and ran around trying to find him..

      COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 09:53

      I thought he was tagging Dusty

        Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 10:41

        He probably was … just seemed like he didn’t have a set opponent .. but I only saw half the game ..

      Beezneez · 05/05/2019 at 11:58

      This is what Dunkley can score when he plays mid. Glad I didn't get rid of him and hope the time in the guts continues.

        The Ranger · 05/05/2019 at 14:55

        Hard to know what's gonna happen with the Dogs mids eh Beez?
        Libba was going along fine, now Dunkley pops up, Bont is killing it now but who know when he'll get put forward again, Macrae has gone quiet, so has Hunter.
        Staying away from Dogs players. They're like Hawks used to be.

Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 09:24

I’m having one of those “gonna” weekends … was gonna bring in Sicily, didn’t, was the gonna bring in Heeney, didn’t, was then gonna bring in Houli… didn’t… went with a rookie up back to plug a donut … now I’m gonna bring in Fyfe for Constable … I think…

    JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 10:51

    Hey Lazza, I just noticed we are playing against each other in two leagues, looks about even at the moment.

      Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 11:39

      Hey John, yeh not much in it .. with so many so called premos not performing each week it has become a bit of a lottery … good luck buddy..

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 10:53

    One good thing, we all know to bring in Whitfield in 3 weeks, he plays this week and next week, should drop to around $500k. Get him in for The Melbourne game, Suns after that.

dontblushbaby · 05/05/2019 at 09:35

Those with Constable ,he still could in today, the VFL team plays at 11.50am

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 09:52

    I’d be amazed if he did. Only added to the emergency list after Selwood was dropped. Although I’d be very dirty if he does play considering I missed bringing in Cameron because of him.

    COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 09:54

    If he plays, I’ll rage after Trading him to Hayes last night!

    Beezneez · 05/05/2019 at 12:01

    Keeping sn eye on that. I'm guessing you're talking AEST? Do you have an update cos it will affect my loophole options. Any update will be appreciated.

      Beezneez · 05/05/2019 at 12:26

      Looks like he's in the vfl team.

      random · 05/05/2019 at 12:29

      constable is playing the vfl today. just saw on ch7

      Cpt Pugwash · 05/05/2019 at 13:03

      Confirmed – playing in VFL

Pman · 05/05/2019 at 12:38

I foolishly had the VC on Rockliff on Friday night so need to get my Captain right this week so who do the Community think is a better choice as Captain over Cripps or Danger, both of scored a disappointing 93 last week? Also who to start as M8 over Gibbons or Atkins? Cheers…

    Cpt Pugwash · 05/05/2019 at 12:55

    Cripps IMO

      Cpt Pugwash · 05/05/2019 at 13:42

      I changed my mind. Danger…

    Pman · 05/05/2019 at 13:41

    I ended up leaving the C on Danger any by the looks of Cripps in the first Qtr it may have been a good move…

chuck_a_spekky · 05/05/2019 at 12:59

In a close game. Take Gawn's 127 or put the C on Fyfe, Cripps or Danger? Opposition has the C on Cripps. Panic!

    Cpt Pugwash · 05/05/2019 at 13:17

    Bit a late for my reply but 127 and you can stop all the worry – 254pts is a great score.

    You can sit back and just enjoy the game then.

      Cpt Pugwash · 05/05/2019 at 13:42

      Cripps on5 pts at Qtr time (2 Handballs)

Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 13:29

Cripps down. Noooooo.
Still onfield but struggling after knock.

    JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 13:35

    Only three of my nine opponents have him as C, so it doesn't help me as much as I thought it might.

      Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 13:36

      2 of them are me 😢

        JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 14:01

        Not the way I wanted to win against you Lazza, but boy do I need a win in the JR Mega-League, it's the only league I haven't won a game in.Most of my other leagues I have 2-4 wins

        JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 17:16

        Looks like it all worked out in the end Lazza, with Cripps coming back, now we're back to having a close one.

          Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 17:34

          I’ve got no idea how we are tracking … SC seems to be down at the moment ..

          Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 19:02

          You’ve cleaned me up JD… ROB has been a great selection .. well done .. back to the drawing board for me ..

            JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 19:59

            Thanks Lazza, you caught me on a good weekend,for me at least, seeing a lot of low scores, not often I end up the highest scorer in most of my leagues. O'Brien has been great, took a chance putting him in at R2 when he was on the bubble, but he's scoring well and making heaps of cash.

    The unsullied · 05/05/2019 at 13:47

    What happened to him.

      Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 16:00

      Must have received a knock to his knee. Finished off well thankfully

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 14:05

    He will come good

Connor · 05/05/2019 at 13:36

Took the VC off Gawn and put it on Neale 2 minutes before the Melbourne game. Took the C off Fyfe and put it on Cripps 2 minutes before the Carlton Game.
Sums it up…

TommyC99 · 05/05/2019 at 13:42

Is Cripps even playing?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 14:02

    Started like a statue. Starting to get going now.

DavidC · 05/05/2019 at 13:47

Walsh on 37 at Qtr time. A lot traded him out for a premo.

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 14:03

    He is playing in defence. Without Simpson and Newman, Seeing a lot of it.

    I traded him out. It was a toss up between Walsh and Libba.

      JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 14:17

      Libba would have made more sense Derek, he was starting to lose cash and he was worth more, plus Walsh still had cash to make.

        Derek · 05/05/2019 at 14:34

        I saw Libba as my last upgrade, almost keeper. I didn’t see dogs game, sounds like he doesn’t get the midfield time anymore.

    Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 17:21

    Walsh only had a BE of 33 would make about 20k this week

Jeff · 05/05/2019 at 13:53

Who to put the C on Fyfe or Danger?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 14:01

    Well the way Cripps is going as my VC it leaves me with little choice to go to Danger.

      TommyC99 · 05/05/2019 at 14:06

      hes had a large quarter so far. What does he need to get to for ya to keep crippas score? Having to make your decision at 3 quarter time makes it a little tricky

        TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 14:23

        It will be touch and go now. If Cripps is close to 100 nearing 3/4 time I can buy myself some time and bypass Danger and put the C on Fyfe. Cripps can then play out the game as VC and hopefully get to 140 as a minimum. If he falls short, I will captain Fyfe. I need a big VC or C score to beat a number of opponents in my leagues. A 125 wont cut it. 140+ minimum.

    Ja191 · 05/05/2019 at 14:08


TommyC99 · 05/05/2019 at 14:58

What does Gibbons need to be on at 3 quarter time in order to take his score over Atkins?

    BrownlowBoy · 05/05/2019 at 15:10

    Think I'm going to take it. He's on 50 right now with a quarter to go. Probably not much risk in taking it.

hedski · 05/05/2019 at 15:18

Carn the cattas 👍🍻

dontblushbaby · 05/05/2019 at 15:34

Danger hobbling off the ground !

    dontblushbaby · 05/05/2019 at 15:38

    Back on now , looks ok

Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 15:57

Thank you Crippa for saving me. 110 points in 3 quarters has made me fairly happy 😊

TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 16:01

if I take Crippsies VC score I will lose a lot of my leagues but save my round and salvage a decent score. What are others doing? Fyfe C? Or throw the C band to Matty Crouch at home?

    Brn · 05/05/2019 at 16:12

    I'd go fyfe if i had the option

      KSinny · 05/05/2019 at 16:12

      Yeh same

        TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 16:18

        Going to get greedy and plonking the C on Fyfe. No guts no glory.

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 16:17

    Who do you still have Hawk to loophole?

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 16:29

      Nobody!! Hahahahahaha.

    Finnius · 05/05/2019 at 16:26

    Take it. Scaled up to 123 in a tough week is more than enough for a captaincy score.

      TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 16:33

      Going to run with Fyfe as C. Charlie Constable is now locked on my bench. Forgot about that when I tried to stretch Cripps out as VC for his whole game. Thought I could buy the time to do it by putting C on Fyfe. And passing over Danger as C. Almost worked, except like Dangerfield, Constable also plays for Geelong. At least its kind of lucky, as if I had not made that little over sight mistake, I be stuck with Danger as C now. Go Fyfey!! Dont repeat what you did to me in round two mate when I had you captain last. LOL

Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 16:11

Oh dear. Maybe I should of fielded Atkins instead of taking Rocky’s score. He has started well

    hedski · 05/05/2019 at 16:32

    I should have started him over Gibbons Holty.
    Go cats.

    Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 17:22

    Should be on more if anything

Brn · 05/05/2019 at 16:11

I know par is sort of subjective due to rank, but is 2200 better than average this week?

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 16:16

    I would think so

    Finnius · 05/05/2019 at 16:20

    It's a pretty tough week – anything above 2150 will be a good score I think looking around my leagues. 2200 is good, and 2250 will be top 1%.

    redherringfc · 05/05/2019 at 18:18

    With Danger knocking about a solid 26, 2200 is a great score.

    I’m now tracking for around 2150 which I’m hoping is around the top 10%.

Brn · 05/05/2019 at 16:14

Who doesn't have dangerfield? He can score as lo2 as he likes imo, will just weed out the poor souls that made him C 🙁

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 19:20

    I think nearly everyone who cares for SC will have him. I think the only ones who have the right to be upset will be the ones who plonked the C on him.

Ja191 · 05/05/2019 at 16:19

if kelly was neale he'd be on about 120 at this point

BrownlowBoy · 05/05/2019 at 16:28

Essendon cheer squad supporters are actually terrible

    BrownlowBoy · 05/05/2019 at 17:40

    Absolute feral supporter base 0 class whatsoever

    Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 19:37

    Booing the Anzac day medalist Pretty much sums it up I would have thought.

    COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 19:38

    100% agree mate I was at the match today bloody shocking they were

Finnius · 05/05/2019 at 16:58

What a rough week. Who has Danger as captain…?

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 18:01

    Yep. Tossed up all day between danger and Cripps. Oh well.

      Pranav · 05/05/2019 at 18:32

      It’s annoying cause danger generally does well without Selwood. There was a game without Selwood where he scored 196 against GWS

Dave · 05/05/2019 at 17:10

Ret ards cant even tag fyfe

    Dave · 05/05/2019 at 17:12

    Ellis yo a complete hack for the job. Pushes mcrouch to outside mid too. Pathetic resource use by Adelaide, they deserve to lose

Tommo09 · 05/05/2019 at 17:19

Sounds crazy but would it be worth trading Danger out and getting him back when he hits some form. He’s gonna lose a lot of cash and has being playing injured recently

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 17:53

    This is when having trades in hand is important.

Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 17:36

I reckon there will be massive trades on Danger this week.. problem is … who the hell do we trade to … the FWDs as a whole are useless group this year.

    Pranav · 05/05/2019 at 17:54

    is he unlikely to play next week? even if he doesnt play i dont see a reason to trade him out

      Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 18:22

      Depends on whether it is Medial ligament (depends on grade, grade 1 can be up to 12wks) or medial meniscus tear (3-4 weeks). In either scenario I’ll trade him out ..

        Pranav · 05/05/2019 at 18:31

        Oh wow didn’t realise he could be out for 3-4 weeks. Why did they keep him on field? Didn’t think it was a serious injury cause when I checked fanfooty his TOG wasnt that low and he didn’t get the Red Cross

          hedski · 05/05/2019 at 18:44

          Love Danger but he is a Massive Diva.

        Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 18:58

        Leaving him on suggests it’s a miniscus … wouldn’t do anymore damage …

          Dan · 05/05/2019 at 19:17

          Chris Scott said the fact he was left on means there’s a chance he’ll be able to play next week. Here’s hoping that’s right

    gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 18:07

    Dunkley is your man

      Lazza · 05/05/2019 at 18:10

      Already have him Gator..

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 18:22

    Anyone without Boak will make swap

    redherringfc · 05/05/2019 at 20:56

    If you’ve got the balls, Hoff.

    Although I’ll be going 2 down this week.

Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 17:47

Atkins 7 touches so far in the last for 9pts. Is it because it’s Atkins?

Brn · 05/05/2019 at 18:24

Roughly 2150 this week. Ranked top 1000. Will I drop?

    KSinny · 05/05/2019 at 18:40

    Probably not after Dangerfields score

    Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 18:40


RoyWetard · 05/05/2019 at 18:39

A pathetic 52 from Dangerfield! At least I didn't (looks at team) no, oh no, OH NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH GOD, NO!

    COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 19:40

    My condolences

redherringfc · 05/05/2019 at 18:53

I need this game to end.

Only 1 matchup that isn’t certain. If Mundy and Laird outscore M Crouch by 140, I’m done.

    redherringfc · 05/05/2019 at 19:09

    138 was the magic number.without scaling I go down by 1. Ouch.

      Brn · 05/05/2019 at 19:11

      Fkd mate

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/05/2019 at 19:02

Miers Loving ya work you hairy little wee rippa.

Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 19:08

Wow M Crouch 39 touches for 87 pts

    Brn · 05/05/2019 at 19:13

    Thats harsh but supercoach. I had him too and think he should have gone a little better. You see players absolutely give their all around the ground and score no points in sc. All that energy/pressure acts and no points makes you think sometimes

      Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 19:21

      Ive nearly had enough sadly

    gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 20:02

    Champion Data blokes don't seem to have him other wise he would've scored around the 140 points

      Shake_n_bake · 05/05/2019 at 21:04

      That’s why l said last week in the 1st 5 mins Neale had 2 handballs 1 free against and was on 12. Crouch brothers would be -1

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/05/2019 at 20:05

    97 pts, low disposal efficiency held his score back, bit of a bummer I also have him

KSinny · 05/05/2019 at 19:13

About 2070 for me this week, ranked 3k atm thinking I'm gonna drop more. How'd everyone else score?

    silversovereign · 05/05/2019 at 19:53

    2175 for me

Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 19:17

very average week for me looking at 2150.
Reilly O'Brien and jeremy cameron the heros for me at R2 banked 400k with this move and has actually outscored goldy the past two rounds since making the move. Cameron over TKelly was a nice move but still think i need him in soon!
Sicily, brayshaw, danger & libba the villians for me all under performing.
how did everybody else's round finish up?

    KSinny · 05/05/2019 at 19:19

    Think that's a decent score this week mate, only 2070 for me.

    Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 19:25

    2182. Only 2 people in my league scored over 2150. I reckon around 2100 is par

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 19:29

    Massive by ROB mate. Good work. I’m only playing him as a cash cow. Surely Don Pyke and the Crows see reason and don’t bring back Jacobs. ROB is a far better ruckman imo

      Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 19:33

      I hope your right Holty i don't watch many crows games but the stats and SC scores he puts up seems to suggest he is putting up a serious case for #1 ruck even when jacobs is fit. I'd hate too see ROB have another 50-80k+ in him and be dropped pre byes.

    Nath123 · 05/05/2019 at 19:35

    Only scored 2030 but won all my leagues

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 19:41

    2098 for me. Left about 35 points on my ruck bench this week. How good is ROB!! Cash cow on steroids. LOL

    JohnDJ59 · 05/05/2019 at 19:50

    2219, my second highest score for the year and finally out of the 2100-2150 range, won all nine league games, not seeing many scores over 2200

      Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 19:52

      nice score John! that'll rocket you up the rankings mate

    iamme · 05/05/2019 at 19:58

    2136 Considering I had Rocky, Libba. Heeny and obviously Patty D, not too shabby.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 05/05/2019 at 20:01

    2193 for me, which seems to be the highest I can see in my leagues, low scoring week

      gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 20:08

      2238 for me and won 9 out of ten leagues

        Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:11

        nice gator, huge score in a bad week for most! i think one of them 9 wins was against me in 'the rat pack'? haha

          gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 20:17

          The only league i lost in was to the cheese and kisses in the Magnificent 7 which she scored 2292… Bitch so don't tell her I said that… She'll give me a right hook

            Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:32

            you knocked me off in JR mega league by 8 NDD.
            Don't expect a chrissy card this year haha well done mate very close!
            it's a tight league that one not alot between 4th and 16th

            Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:45

            Nice one Gator, my only loss this week was to bastard;)…haha well done bud.

              gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 21:20

              cheers russty just keep chippin away and we'll get up the rankings slowly

            gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 21:21

            She's only got Stack and Baker from tiges neil

        Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 20:12

    Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:15

    2193 after final corrections. 2nd highest in my league. Only one person over 2200

      Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:32

      Really good score Rocksta, how many places up did you move this week?

        Rocksta_ · 06/05/2019 at 08:17

        Thanks Russty. Around 6000 mate. I’m into the top 5000 now. Had an ordinary start to the season but have been climbing the ranks over the last 3 weeks. Hopefully it continues.
        Need to start planning for byes now. My rank was decimated by the byes last season.

    The Ranger · 05/05/2019 at 20:23

    2150 looks about par Mav.
    2010 for me, my team stinks, gonna be a long year…

      Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:29

      I reckon par is lower Ranger. Only 2 people above 2150 in my league. More around 2100 I reckon.

    Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:32

    2182 here Mav..was golfing this arvo, what the heck happened with Danger!…did he do his knee or something horrible?

      Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:34

      nice one that is decent!
      yeah not sure the details mate but it was a knee injury yeah unsure on the extent of it
      hoping it's not too serious though i have enough to deal with

        Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:41

        Well done too this week mate, wow I was stunned when I saw Danger's 26..glad I didn't captain him, sympathies to those that did.
        Most of my other players did pretty week today, shame I have ROB stuck on the bench lol.

          Maverick_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:46

          jumped 6000 places now russty sitting at 8000 slowly climbing.
          I think alot of people ahead of me musta had the C on danger.
          that's why i always take 125+ now and locked in gawn I'd be burnt earlier in the year, not again no thank you.

            Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 21:26

            I hear you Mav, Gawn was locked in for me too, anything can happen in Sunday Games, and usually does, I jumped 10000 this week to 12000, heading in the right direction 🙂

          Marcus · 05/05/2019 at 20:47

          2179 for me. Shocked to see me with a rank of 472. (Ranked no. 1145 last week)

            Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:54

            Beauty Marcus!…keep it going , great start to the season.

              Marcus · 05/05/2019 at 23:28

              Thanks Russty ! All the best to you too .

                Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:35

                I'm jealous mate…you just need to manage your team now so you don't do anything silly…( a good start is very important)
                So think about your trades and save em when you can.
                From past experience, the hardest thing is to have a great start in Supercoach.

    NoLanguage96 · 05/05/2019 at 23:22

    2169 for me, not too bad considering the terrible scores from Danger, Heeney and Libba

RoyWetard · 05/05/2019 at 19:41

When Josh Dunkley is your highest scoring player you're gonna have a bad time.

COREYSC · 05/05/2019 at 19:41

What do the Crouch Brothers have to do to tonne up! 39 Touches for Matt 97pts
31 Touches for Brad 79pts

Those two may have to get 100 touches between them to score 100 each

    _Kyle · 05/05/2019 at 20:35

    Mcrouch is a bigger butcher than treloar.

    Bcrouch was absolutely robbed. 0 points in the 4th and then had his final score scaled down to 79

    redherringfc · 05/05/2019 at 20:55

    Kick/hand ball it to their own players, from what I saw.

UpBeat · 05/05/2019 at 20:04

Butters beat Dangers score, what a round !!

Kewbie Bear · 05/05/2019 at 20:06

Can't wait to rage trade most of my team!!

TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 20:51

Congrats to Derek and Russty. Derek pumped me in draft and Russty pumped me in classic. I threw kitchen sinks around but it was in vain. Well played.

    Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 20:53

    Cheers Hawk, just a bit of a down week for ya this week with several underperformers, you'll bounce back soon mate.

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 22:31

    My C choice of Cameron in Draft was much better than my Danger choice in Classic.

      Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 22:33

      Bad luck with that Derek, I had Danger C in AF and still won a league…lol

hedski · 05/05/2019 at 21:04

2094 for me 6/10 league wins, lost a six pack.
Atkins on ground over Gibbons and it would have been 9/10, gained a six pack.
Coulda, woulda, didn't.
Wouldn't have caught Gator anyway, great score mate <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src=""&gt;.
Very happy with the cattas.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 21:29

Finnius · 05/05/2019 at 21:05

Up to rank 111 with what I thought was a pretty mediocre score of 2135… Double downgrade on the cards this week I think (Liberatore is going to bleed cash if we don't let him go, and Petrucelle is maxed out). Hately and Answerth in via some DPP magic. Lloyd and Boak in next week. Onwards and upwards :)))

How did everyone else go/what are we planning?

    hedski · 05/05/2019 at 21:13

    Nice work Fin, thinking Collins and Butters out for Answorth and The Hoff while he's cheap.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 21:19

    You are the man Finnius! Ranked at 111 if you do not mind. WOW. I ended up with 2098. Libba is in the gun this week. Hately JS still an issue for me but he can seriously play. Luke Ryan is on the TH radar.

    Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 21:22

    Having a great year Finn, keep it going matey…not sure what I'm doing yet tradewise, already burned a few…maybe Answerth though.
    Knocked off another 10,000 spots this week so up to about 12,000 now, considering I was 66,000 after week one, I'm fairly happy.

    gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 21:26

Put Whitfield and constable back on the ground – projected 2370 this week. lol.

Was a fair way short of that score 🙂

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 21:45

    I traded out Whitfield. Bugger! LOL

    Reilly O'Brien is a freak. Who needs Goldy when you have Mumford and ROB fighting over the R2 pozzie in the TH side. One thing is certain. Grundy at R1. After that it is points and more points. And cash, cash, cash and more cash!

      Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 21:59

      I've Got Gawn, Goldy and ROB Hawk, I'm happy with Goldy for now but he better keep up the good scoring cause ROB's pressuring him for R2 haha, one of them will become a premo forward soon.

        TOPHAWK1 · 05/05/2019 at 22:07

        I grabbed Mummy at $320K and ROB at $136K. And the Hoff this week at $393K. Its all happening!

          Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 22:22

          Some good bargain Rucks there Hawker, Mummy would've tonned up easy if not for the frees against this week, aka clangers.
          Go the Hoff!

Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 21:53

Big shout-out to (Team) Holt…Holty!…
Ranked 19th overall and number one in the JR Community Group.
Fantastic effort mate, you're killing it, keep the good work up buddy.
Keep pushing and don't run out of trades mate.

    Derek · 05/05/2019 at 22:03

    Rare air mate. What has been the reason for your success?

    Rocksta_ · 05/05/2019 at 22:12

    Well done Holty. Keep it up mate

    The Ranger · 05/05/2019 at 22:17

    Onya Holty, good luck mate

    gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 22:19

    Wow that's a great effort Holty .. Keep it up mate

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 23:06

    Cheers mate and thanks all for the encouragement. A long way to go though. As the old saying says, ‘it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon’.

      Derek · 05/05/2019 at 23:11

      Gives us something.

      What was your best POD started?

        Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 23:24

        Hurn, Sloane have been my biggest PODs I guess.
        Sticking to my research this preseason and not panic trading rookies after a bad game. I don’t have Rozee but happy I saved the trade.
        Made 2 sideways trades early. Heeney to Kelly after rd2. Wasn’t happy rd3 but has made up for it. Getting Boak in rd4 for Dunkley happy with as well but may try to bring him back soon with him now getting mid time.
        24 trades left and got Fyfe this week. Slowly building to full premo.
        Next decision is do I bring In Westhoff or Dunkley.🤔

          Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 23:27

          And also playing the right rookies most weeks

            Detek · 05/05/2019 at 23:44

            Trading out Heeney, bold.

          Shake_n_bake · 06/05/2019 at 06:27

          Awesome start Holty. Dunkley firmly in my sights this week.. tip look at the buy rds. Have playing rookies come that time.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/05/2019 at 00:14

    Well done Holty, keep it going mate, we might have to name you The Godfather.

gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 22:56

Anyone thinking of trading Walsh to get an uber premo in

    Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:02

    This would probably be the week to do it Gator, or Libba first if you have him.
    Money only gets lost if breakevens aren't met.

      Derek · 05/05/2019 at 23:09

      I traded him this week. Had him at M8, brought in Laird. Atkins/Constable to fill M8 for a few weeks

        Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:29

        Bold move Derek, but you've locked a defensive premo in now, so probably for the overall good of your team.

      gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 23:55

      Got rid of Libba last week for Fyfe…. Walsh with a BE of 97 may start to bleed some cash… I'll have to have a good ponder on it this week…. Also Luke Ryan has caught my attention for the last 3 weeks and @ 542K with an average of 108 is very tempting

        Derek · 06/05/2019 at 09:47

        What does Blakely do to the Freo team. He should be back next week?

          gator59 · 06/05/2019 at 09:58

          Not sure what the roles will be Derek.. We'll just have to wait and see on that one

    WTFoxtrot_58 · 06/05/2019 at 10:56

    Walsh to Dunkley who will ultimately end up foward.

    Bob · 06/05/2019 at 17:10

    Walsh to Fyfe this week

Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 22:57

    AuroraBorealis?! · 05/05/2019 at 23:08

    Agreed with that other unnamed league Russty, you know if i'm 5-0 that something is going very wrong haha

      Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:11

      Hey mate!…ride the success!…most teams in there are trying. 🙂
      A few aren't , but sometimes life gets in the way…and all that jazz.

        AuroraBorealis?! · 05/05/2019 at 23:19

        What do you mean by life Russty? Are you getting confused with the word "supercoach"?

          Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:24

          If they were thinking about Supercoach mate, they wouldn't be averaging 1920 and 1613, but hey, only the top 16 go through anyway so it should still be a competitive finals series.

    Holty01 · 05/05/2019 at 23:11

    Nice work to all. And just a sneaky shout out to my league (Lek & Patches rabble) sitting at 35.

      Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:47

      Well that's just bloody brilliant mate…..must have some serious players in that league.

        gator59 · 05/05/2019 at 23:51

        Yes Russty and Holty is flying the flag for us in Lek and Patch's Rabble

    Shake_n_bake · 06/05/2019 at 06:18

    Had a couple of teams that capt Danger in my league this week. Could have sat a little higher with a bit more luck

      s c tragic · 06/05/2019 at 09:45

      Enjoying Lek&Patches rabble league, may the force stay with us.

    WTFoxtrot_58 · 06/05/2019 at 10:59

    I am one of the ball droppers Russty is referring to.
    Haven't given up but had a few shanks and just can't drop a putt.
    Still trying though.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/05/2019 at 11:51

      The back 9 is more friendly.

      Less trees, less water and more player friendly.

      Should be able to get back on the fairway and make a late charge on the way home

      Russty_ · 06/05/2019 at 12:25

      Hey WTF, no offence intended , and I wasn't referring to you, you're doing ok, keep slugging it out and you'll turn it around, think the guy averaging 1600 is either very unlucky or not trying too hard though.

      Derek · 06/05/2019 at 18:01

      cheers NDD. its frustrating as early in the season as a few hundred points can be 10k in rank.

    JohnDJ59 · 06/05/2019 at 13:14

    Hi Russty, the Sons league is very competitive this year, not much in it either. Surprised the Barron is at the bottom, I thought he would have been doing better than that. Had a few not turn up this year, so I had to add a couple from the Sun to make up the numbers.

      Russty_ · 06/05/2019 at 15:30

      Hi John, I don't mind a few Celeb players in there, yeah Barron seems to be having a tough time of it, he should turn it around though.

Derek · 05/05/2019 at 23:47

Ohhhhh Danger got injured twice today. I saw the anckle, but I had to go away for a bit and didn’t realise he hurt his knee as well. Didn’t think anckle looked that bad.

He could have done what he did against the hawks on one leg! Stupid C choice

    Russty_ · 05/05/2019 at 23:55

    All the peeps trading Answerth and Hately in this week might have to re-consider.
    Depends on how long Danger's out though.

      nankthetank · 06/05/2019 at 01:36

      Article on AFL site says Cats expect him to play next week

Ned_Starkers · 06/05/2019 at 07:44

Got $500k bank but still planning on going down to Hately and Answerth for a double upgrade next week, but is there any premos where this is the must get week?
I didn’t really see any…

    gator59 · 06/05/2019 at 10:11

    The Bont may be

    JohnDJ59 · 08/05/2019 at 12:55

    Bont or Fyfe if you don't have them already.

Lazza · 06/05/2019 at 13:47

Not sure which way to go this week… Have $600k+, so can afford a Premo on any line … Currently have 3 keepers in DEF, 6 in MID, and 3 up FWD with GawnStein as the RUCs. Thinking one of Hurn, Sicily, Lloyd, Bont, Merrett, (gone off Josh Kelly), Boak, CalebD or Mundy.
Only thing is that the DEFs are all likely to be cheaper next week, as will Merrett.

Is having 7 Premos in place at this time wise? or should I focus on building DEF and/or FWD?

BTW – my keeper MIDs are Neale, Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, MCrouch and Oliver. (a Claytons premo at the moment).

    The Ranger · 06/05/2019 at 15:57

    In a similar boat Lazza and can't decide whether to paint the fence or just double downgrade.
    Pretty much locked in Answerth and tempted by Corbett as there doesn't look to be many other fwd rookies in the pipeline.
    If I do paint the fence then I'm leaning toward the Bont, I'd rather pick up a 530-550K premo but he's just so SC friendly.
