SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 8

You may be aware that SuperCoach is used in schools to teach kids about #QuickMaths, buying and selling, and such and such. I propose that it also be used in psychology studies. The 5 stages of grief: denial, anger, depression, bargaining, acceptance; are something I experience every week! 

It all begins with denial pre-round that my side is rubbish, then I shift quickly to anger when they do, in fact, score rubbish. Then depression hits when I check players that I nearly traded in go bananas and the ones I held disappoint. Then begins the bargaining with the SuperCoach Gods, promising blind and devoted faith in return for Brad Crouch’s 30 disposals per week to translate into more points. Then finally, acceptance comes on Sunday night where I’m given two bandaids in the form of trades to cover the gaping holes in my team (and heart).

Me on Sunday evenings

We march on though, community! We need to stick together and help each other through these difficult times. After all, isn’t sticking together what good waffles do? After a month of price rises some of the rookies we’ve nurtured are ripe for the slaughter. Patch and Lek look at who to hold and who to fold in the podcast this week.

The News

A ‘normal round’ doesn’t exist in SuperCoach land. Plenty of issues are facing us coaches this week. Lachie Whitfield is still out despite positive words from Leon Cameron in the week that he would return. Essendon are managing Joe Daniher. Pies’ Dayne Beams and Taylor Adams are out with injury, as is Giant Shane Mumford. Then there’s the whole will he, won’t he, Patrick Dangerfield debacle. Part of me thinks Patrick is being Patrick and he’s putting lashings of mayo on this ‘injury’, so fingers crossed he lines up on Sunday.     

For tonight, Colin O’Riordan gets another chance to impress, replacing the injured Harry Cunningham. Zac Clarke (RUC – 142.6k) returns for the Bombers and is on the bubble in one of four changes. Brayden Ham (FWD – 117.3k) will play his second game. Orazio has also been recalled.

Matt Suckling returns for the Dogs on Saturday for their match against Brisbane. In a good sign for his job security, Noah Answerth has kept his spot despite Harris Andrews and Zac Bailey returning. Kruze returns for Blues, as does rookie Will Setterfield. Rupert Wills (MID – 166.1k) and Chris Mayne replace Beams and Adams. The Suns regain rebounders Pearce Hanley and Lachie Weller from injury, likewise Melbourne who welcome back Jack Viney. Huge outs for the Power in the Showdown; Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert will miss with injury and popular rookie Zak Butters has been omitted. Trio Aidyn Johnson (FWD – 208.1k), Kane Farrell (FWD – 216.9), and Matthew Broadbent (DEF – 261.7) will all play their first games of the year. Luke Brown replaces the injured Bryce Gibbs at the Crows. Jonathan Marsh is one and done at the Saints and bubble boy Darragh Joyce has been dropped. The Eagles have omitted Chris Masten and picked another tall forward in Jake Waterman.  

On Sunday, no confirmed outs as yet for North but LDU is in the squad along with possible debutants Curtis Taylor (MID/FWD – 117.3k) and Kyron Hayden (MID/FWD – 102.4k). Joel Selwood and Zach Tuohy will return for the Cats. Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k) has again been named in the squad, as has Charlie Constable despite Chris Scott’s less than enthusiastic comments about him in the week. Brett Bewley (MID – 117.3k) has again made Freo’s extended squad. Dan Rioli and Nick Vlastuin have been added to Richmond’s already overflowing injury list, Jake Aarts (FWD – 106.9k) and Riley Collier-Dawkins (MID – 121.8k) are among the 6 names added to the squad. For the last game of the week, Hawthorn have made a huge power move by dropping Jarryd Roughead to the VFL and Chadly Wingard is injured again. Rookies Jack Scrimshaw and James Cousins have been named. The Giants have dropped Jackson Hately again for some reason. Josh Kelly is among the ins.

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

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

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Make no mistake community, upgrade season is here to stay for the next few weeks and there’s temptation to get that next cheap gun into your team. As I said last week, it’s important to think a few trades ahead and we’ve got some awesome downgrade options on the bubble this week. Declan Keilty was the only rookie priced player to play their first game last weekend so if it’s cash you need, it’s important you jump on now. With that out of the way, it’s amazing to think a guy that has scored 5 times over a hundred and has a low of 93 has a) only risen 80k since the start of the year, and b) still available for under 500k. That guy is Caleb Daniel and he looks every bit like a top 6 forward in 2019.

A forward in SuperCoach but a defender out on the field, he is the designated kicker outerer for Dogs and playing on at every opportunity, getting easy possessions. SuperCoach loves guys that can kick long and do it accurately, exactly a trait that Caleb brings to the table.   

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar 

Yuuuuge week in the Draftstars vault last week. If you entered the lineup in this section in the $2 mini, it smashed out 854 points, only 31 away from the top of the tree. Being the fickle beast the Draftstars is, the lineup this week is just as likely to bomb out completely as is it to go well, but you gotta be in it to win it, right?!

Even though I covered Port last week, I love a Showdown. Let’s dive in!

**Value picks**

There’s a lot of value on this slate with Matthew Broadbent (DEF – 5k), Aidyn Johnson (FWD – 5.2k), and Kane Farrell (FWD – 6.8k) all playing their first games for the year, or in Broadbent’s case, his first since 2017. The temptation is there to grab all 3 and load up on stars elsewhere. A quick look at their numbers: 

Farrell is not a big ball winner, although he did score 73DS from 13 possessions and 3 goals against Adelaide in round 20 last year. His next highest was 54. 

Aidyn Johnson is also not a big ball winner. Only crossed 50 (57) once in his 5 games last year.

Broadbent flashed an 80 ceiling several times in 2017 with a high score of 110. A lot has changed in Port’s back half since 2017 though, Houston and Burton have come into the side and DBJ was only in his second season. So I’m not entirely convinced that he’ll hit the ground running.

Of the three, I like Broadbent the most, but be cautious of picking all three.

RUC

For the first time since round 2, Paddy Ryder (FWD / 10.2k) attended more ruck contests than Scott Lycett (47 v 41) last week against the Pies, this was despite similar time on ground (Ryder 89% v Lycett 84%). In his prime I really rated Ryder, he looks confident in his body and has a handy record against Adelaide. 

I think he’ll go under owned tonight too as the crowd flocks to the solo rucking Reilly O’Brien (11.9k), who is coming off a 120 in his last start. Rucks have had a difficult time against Port though, who have yet to concede a fantasy 100 to a ruck (this includes Grundy, Gawn, Goldy, Stef Martin).

DEF

Attacking Adelaide with medium defenders is a trend in 2019. They give up the second most amount of points (111.6) behind Richmond to the opposition number 1 defender. The problem is Port don’t particularly have any high ceiling plays in this position. Darcy Byrne-Jones (11.2k) has shown the best ceiling so far, while Ryan Burton (10.3k) has greater consistency in his scores. I also don’t mind Xavier Duursma (MID / 9.7k) who may see a bump with Port’s depleted midfield.  

On the other side of the ledger, Port also have had their struggles with medium defenders. Rory Laird (13.5k) and Brodie Smith (12.4k) are the obvious two to target.

FWD

Port have struggled against small/medium forwards so far this year, with the likes of Jamie Elliot (3 goals / 109DS) and Jack Petruccelle (5 goals / 115DS) cutting them up in recent times. We’re due for an Eddie Betts (8.3k) special I think, I also like Hugh Greenwood (MID / 11.8k) who has no problems finding the ball or the man. Justin Westhoff (13.2k) has had a fantastic fortnight but his price has risen almost 1.2k from last week. I don’t see a lot of value in him anymore.

MID

Both teams are about even in conceding points to opposition number 1 midfielders (Port – 122; Adelaide 115). Neither side has shown a willingness to tag this year so we’ve got a free hit here. First, the value. Willem Drew (9.4k) is a lock and load play for me tonight. He hasn’t had a big game for a while but there’s significant outs in Port Adelaide’s engine room that will see him step up to the plate. From here, you can easily make a case for any of the top 5 mids – from Rocky (13.8k) to Matt Crouch (15.8k). Pick 2 (or 3) of the ones you can afford. In the middle tier, CEY (11.9k) has a great record in Showdown’s and at the Adelaide Oval, he becomes a really good POD play for mine. 

Good luck for this week, community. Be sure to follow the boys on Twitter to be first in the know when a new article drops.

    Great work Kev!

    Clark and Petruccele for Answerth and Daniel for me this week.

    Very disappointed Hately got dropped, what on earth does he have to do to stay in the team?

    • Jey says:

      Same. Hately would be an M7 or M8 next to Walsh if he was playing in any other side.

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Cheers, BB. Great trades. Started the paint the fence with Clark to Answerth but the second trade I'm still mulling over.

  2. g. says:

    With Butters to Answerth already made and just the 1 other trade used for the year, is danger to corbett a shout? Huge cash gains with few rookies on the horizon, and then bring danger back at a discount?

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      Trading Danger is a nice power move but not for a rookie. Corbett will get you cash but won't generate you points. I'd go TK/Daniel. Or take a punt on Dunkley, Ziebell, or Rowan Marshall

    • Mchael says:

      Waste of a trade.

    • Gainsy says:

      I wouldnt

    • Russty_ says:

      There's every chance Danger plays this week and kicks 5 goals even if resting forward…I wouldn't trade him out .
      You make money from rookies, no need to try to grab some cash by trading keepers.

    • alex sabes says:

      never trade danger his breakeven will go down and he will fly up

  3. Ryan says:

    I’m yet to have Tim Kelly in my team so I’m not sure if I should get him now or get Caleb Daniel now

    Need some ideas lads

    • Pranav says:

      id go tim kelly if you can afford another round 13 bye premo

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      How's your byes setting up, mate? TK for ceiling, Daniel will probably fit into your bye structure better.

      • Ryan says:

        Yeah rd 13 isn’t looking the best so I think Daniel is the way to go, I’m just little worried about if he will be this consistent for the rest of the year

        • Lazza says:

          Itsa strange one .. Daniel is ever so slightly cheaper, and averages 4 points more per game … just aim to have both in your team post the byes…

    • Gainsy says:

      Playing for league overall? If league, check you oppos out before deciding

  4. Jord says:

    Trade Butters or Libba for Answorth

  5. Pranav says:

    out of these rookies which 2 should i prioritise getting rid of clark,burgess,constable,gibbons,drew and petrucelle. im bringing in daniel and answerth

  6. TelescopicCox says:

    Hately out has thrown a spanner in the works. I'll definitely go Gibbons > Answert, but unsure of the second trade:

    1. Petruccelle to Hoff (most I can afford is $430K)
    2. Petruccelle to Corbett
    3. Danger to Boak (get Danger back for ROB later on)

  7. TommyC99 says:

    So with Hately out im punting Libba. Go with Boak or Fyfe? Leaning towards Fyfe as Boak's price shouldnt rise much more while Fyfe has probably bottomed out. But Boak will be the number 1 fwd and gives me a mid/fwd swings

  8. BobbyGee says:

    Keen for a double downgrade this week and Gibbons-Ainsworth a definite.

    But what about Parker-Corbett? Parker is the only option to trade out but BE is decent and has some cash to make.

    Do both trades? Or just the Gibbons-Ainsworth one?

    • Josh says:

      Id do just the one trade. Parker will probably outscore corbet and there are other fwd rookies coming through that will be better cash generators

    • Lazza says:

      Too early to trade out Parker … what other rookies do you have? Clarke, Collins, Petruccelli, Burgess and Scott should all be moved on now .. Scrimshaw as well .. or if you have either Libba or Gresham … if you have DPP options there are plenty to move on now ..

  9. The Footy Show maybe gone thru poor showings but the Jock Reynolds site keeps kicking goals. and this is a gem Kev Exactly the info we need. My take out of it is hidden in the middle HUGH GREENWOOD I agree finds the ball and tackles well. Caleb is interesting Kev do you think Suckcliff will impact on him especially taking most kick ins well dpne champ NDD

    • FearTheBeard says:

      This is what I need to work out now. Is Daniel going to be ruined by the return of the SUCK?

  10. Rick Grimes says:

    Suckling, JJ and Daniels. Have they played together this year? I think someone's scoring gets squeezed. For that reason, and his ridiculous smallness, I'm out.

  11. FearTheBeard says:

    Westhoff or Daniels?

    Or hold a week for a decision?

  12. Redd says:

    Thinkin Walsh 2 Macrae? Can anyone tell me Jacks BE?

  13. J-Dog says:

    Thinking either Libba and Butters for Fyfe and Answerth
    OR
    Double down this week, Clark and Butters for Answerth and Corbett…
    This gives me 200k for next week and 21 trades left…

    Thoughts?

    • KSinny says:

      I'd go the first since it gets u more points this week and Fyfe won't be this cheap again

  14. RealDealNeale says:

    Think I'll move on Libba. First trade is Clark > Answerth, who should I get for Libba:

    A) Bont
    B) Macrae
    C) Cameron
    D) Boak
    E) Lloyd

    Leaning to A or B as Libba is my M7, and remainign rookies to pick from are Gibbons, Setterfield, Atkins, Hayes

    • Lazza says:

      Lloyd has a BE of 136 and Macrae 146… so their price wont move much this week … more likely to hold or go down than up ..
      Personally, I think Boak will come back to the field a bit … but I've been thinking that for 3 weeks now … and I noticed he was #1 in CD's "secret" contested footy stats …
      Cameron is a gun, and a great POD.. I'd consider Bont or Cameron… get Boak after his bye which is only 5 rounds away..

      • Russty_ says:

        Good advice Lazza, I'm gonna wait for Boak to get out of Superman mode and hopefully pick him up later if he's still doing ok.

  15. Josh says:

    Butters and Petrucelle out for Answerth and Daniel??

  16. Joe T says:

    Hurn, Stewart or Sicily? Who's the priority or best to bring in purely from a point-scoring perspective?

    • KSinny says:

      Personally if go Sicily but Hurn is very consistent, not too sure about Stewart being top 6.

    • lear says:

      All three very nice options. I'm scared of Touhy taking Stewart's slice of the pie when fit, but currently he's going strong and is cheap.

      Hurn is a god, and scores really well off kick-outs and intercepts.

      Sicily is a flog, but scores amazingly well.

      I would pick Hurn or Sicily based on byes.

  17. Fearthebeard says:

    Daniels or Mundy or neither for now?

  18. KSinny says:

    Thoughts on Zac Merret instead of Fyfe this week? Mainly because he is a POD and I don't really have any.

    • Lazza says:

      Have you seen his BE? its a 169 .. set to lose $20k this week.
      Wait a week or two … actually wait 5 and get him in for R13.

    • Holty01 says:

      Hi KSinny. Do you think he will score more then Fyfe? No point going for a POD just for the sake of it.

    • Russty_ says:

      Pods won't matter much at the end when you're in Finals, you need the highest scoring players, injuries, suspensions and axings will all play a part then anyway to create the difference.

    • Gainsy says:

      Fyfe better than merret for me.

    • Sharkmove_King says:

      Unless if you assume Fyfe will get injured he is a must have in my opinion.

      Zac Merrett is a fair option though. I could easily see him averaging 115 from here on. Bombers have already played the 3 standout teams in 7 weeks, add to that his slow (kinda) start to the season due to interrupted pre season…..there's alot to like there

  19. G.C. says:

    Hi Community, looking forward to another great weekend of footy.

    What's more important for pulling in new rookies? Getting rid of old cash cows at their limit, or getting rid of other non-playing rookies who have a chance of earning more?

    I'm looking to bring in Answerth in my back line for one of my bench rookies, but should I:

    A) Bring in Answerth for Scrimshaw (near his BE limit, but should stay relatively price-neutral after this week) for more cash now, leaving my Defense bench as Answerth and Burgess
    B) Bring in Answerth for Burgess (hasn't made much cash at all, but isn't getting a game currently) for less cash now, but gets in another playing rookie, leaving my Defense bench as Answerth and Scrimshaw

    I'm leaning towards B), as I've already got Bines for a non-playing loophole, but I've seen both options across supercoach. A) could let me paint the fence with the second trade, while with B) I'll double downgrade Petruccelle to Corbett instead.

    Best of luck this week all.

    • Derek says:

      last year just before the byes i traded out some good rookies in a hunt for cash to upgrade over the bye rounds. i was left with a bunch of really aweful rookies who either were omitted or scored 17. i didn't go close to fielding a full team in any of the bye rounds and fell from 2k rank to 18k. i want my rookies to be playing with decent JS even if it means holding them a week or two longer. My rookies playing round 13 in particular (Scrimshaw, Duursma, Drew, Hayes, parker, ROB, even Gibbons)

    • Gainsy says:

      Id say cows at their limit over having bench coverage.

  20. RealDealNeale says:

    Narrowed it down to Bont vs Lloyd for Libba. Team below. Would love some input community!!

    DEF – Hurn, Williams, Smith, Moore, Hore, Duursma (Answerth, Whitfield)
    MID – Neale, Cripps, Oliver, Brayshaw, B.Crouch, Rocky, LIBBA** Atkins (Gibbons, Scott, Hayes)
    R – Grundy, O'Brien (Bines)
    FWD – Danger, De Goey, Kelly, Dunkley, Lycett, Drew (Schultz, Setterfield)

    If I bring in Lloyd, I'll bring Moore to my FWD line via DPP's (Drew to midfield on field, then Libba traded out for Lloyd via Moore).

    Cheers!

  21. TommyC99 says:

    Trade gibbons or scrimshaw to answerth?

    • Lazza says:

      based on their BE and scoring potential, or history of scoring, Gibbons first.

    • Sharkmove_King says:

      Gibbons for sure. If you held Scrimshaw last week, gotta held him this week. He could potentially make you 50k more too and he's an option to start on your 22

  22. Shake_n_bake says:

    Capt and vc?? Who are we putting it on??

  23. Dan says:

    Still trying to make up my mind between:

    Petrucelli -> Daniel
    Or
    Libba -> Macrae/Boak

    Trading Petrucelli will gain me more points this week and is good for my bye structure. But trading Libba will mean I have the $ to do an upgrade next week.

  24. Dash says:

    Who really needs to go first. Not just because of rage but good strategy, 1-4 in order
    Collins, Petruccelle, Clarke, Butters,
    Cheers

    • Sharkmove_King says:

      Clark would the least since he is playing and is priced less than what he can deliver.

      Collins probably first as he is most expensive with highest break even.

      Petrucelle second as he is priced possibly above what he has delivered.

      Butters, although not playing, I'd have him third in order to go. At.least he won't go down, and he could have a rest and start putting up decent numbers again

  25. Stupid Coach says:

    Butters to Answerth and Collins to Ryan or Stewart

    or

    Butters to Answerth to Constable to T Kelly or Pendles..

  26. Lekdog says:

    God I love you Kev

  27. Shake_n_bake says:

    Cats playing funny buggers! Selwood emg. I think maybe Danger late out for Selwood?! 🤔

  28. BradleyTC99 says:

    So with Selwood being named an emergency, you'd think Danger is a very real possibility of being a late out, which would mean having to rely on Petrucelle on field. Now i was planning on going Libba – Fyfe as im sure many are, but i was thinking if i go Boak, i could use Atkins as back up instead with the Mid/fwd i would have created. Thoughts would be great guys?

  29. Rick Grimes says:

    I'm gonna work on the basis Constable or Danger can be my non player, thus opening up more vc options.

  30. Danny says:

    Getting in answerth but how
    Trading out is one of Clarke, Collins or Scott.
    Clarke named in Geelong midfield
    Collins could be a solid D7 season end?
    Scott made no money and a handy mid loop.

    • Russty_ says:

      Get rid of Collins and bank the cash for upgrades next week I think…he should be doing better than he has been.
      He was the number 1 intercept marker in the 2's last year, can't seem to replicate that in the big show.
      Scott's a handy mid loophole until someone better comes along.

  31. FearTheBeard says:

    Can't decide and in a real rush to head out for a mates event.

    Daniels, Mundy, Heeney or HOLD of any for the week?

    • Russty_ says:

      I'd get Daniel, he gets plenty of it all over the ground and has good D/E..he's a good kick, funny to watch too 😉 especially when he's trying to chase someone down.

      • Rick Grimes says:

        I reckon Daniels drops points with Suckling in. Still a good pick tho.

        • Russty_ says:

          Still averaged 103 with Suckling in the side up to round 4 Rick.

          • FearTheBeard says:

            You got me on for Daniels. It was my move sooon as it opened. Reversed as was unsure.

            I know they had played together but it was minus JJ.

            Which made me nervous with all 3…

            Tell me I'm on the right train here Russty!!!

            • Russty_ says:

              Just gotta back him in mate if you believe in him, he's a different player from what he was last year, virtually on the ball now, as opposed to an undersized small forward last few years. Bevo finally woke up and put him in his correct role.
              I don't think JJ and Suckling will affect him much.

          • Rick Grimes says:

            No JJ tho. Have all three played together. Seem similar to me.

  32. TommyC99 says:

    VC and C is quite tough this week. With one of danger or constable being out, it gives me a bit more range to select from. What do we reckon guys?

    1. Macrae/Grundy – Gawn
    2. Macrae/Grundy – Fyfe
    3. Gawn – Fyfe

  33. Russty_ says:

    For those not trading out Danger this week, make sure you have decent cover just in case.
    I put Danger into the mids with Ross backing up and Drew into the fwds with Parker backing up Bines C

    • FearTheBeard says:

      Just made it so Bolton is cover

    • TommyC99 says:

      Hey russty, i currently dont have a mid/fwd swing which scares me (have to field petrucelle if danger doesnt play). Thoughts on bringing in boak ahead of fyfe so i can gain that swing? It would mean i'd be fielding atkins if hes out which i personally don't think id gain that many points from, more just hes a safer more reliable pick

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey Tommy, Fyfe could be 30 grand more next week but it's up to you…whoever covers for Danger if he's out won't score as well as him.
        Eagles are playing the Saints this week, not exactly the best backline in the world, maybe back Petrol in to score ok if Danger doesn't play.

    • Lazza says:

      smarty pants 🙂

    • Holty01 says:

      Holding Clark now. Was swinging Moore to defence but if Danger misses I only have Corbett as backup. Will probably only make 1 trade this week now.

  34. Newbie says:

    if i want to do trades does it need to be done prior to tonight match, or can i wait till tomorrow?
    I'm a newbie.
    Cheers, it's a cool site.

    • Justin says:

      You can wait, but be sure of your trades because if you trade tomorrow you can't reverse them.

    • Lazza says:

      No, you can make your trades anytime during the round as long as those you are trading out, or in, haven't played at that point in time.

    • Russty_ says:

      As these blokes said Newbie…just don't do any trial runs with your trades as they're not reversible after tonight starts.

  35. BigAl_15 says:

    Who do I bring in?! Daniel, Boak, Bontempelli or Fyfe??

  36. Justin says:

    Anyone know what is happening with Mumford?

  37. UpBeat says:

    Any suggestions on the trades below?

    1. Butters to Answorth, done.

    2. Walsh to Lloyd or Bloke. I'm not concerned with BE's, both are keepers.
    or
    Petrul to Moore to generate moola

    • Russty_ says:

      Wouldn't trade out Walsh yet…he'll be one of my last ones to go unless he gets injured or starts scoring like lesser rookies.

      • UpBeat says:

        I was thinking the same Russty but he is there for a purpose and that's to make dollars to trade up to a premo.

    • TommyC99 says:

      Neither imo. If you want to downgrade Corbett is a better option

      • UpBeat says:

        Unfortunately Lloyd is off the table coz of that rd 13 bye. Haven't seen much of Corbett is he any good? I think Moore's JS is looking solid with Roughy gonski

  38. TommyC99 says:

    So i've narrowed down the choices from my last post (to an extent). Think Fyfe is a safe 120+ against a tigs midfield who leak points. So just need a VC.

    Grundy – Does kruezer being in affect his output? Should have him around the ground though
    Macrae – Not in the best form but history at MARS and against the Lions is very very good.
    Gawn – Solid history against the suns and demons midfield should win the battle comfortably

  39. Alferton says:

    Suggestions please.
    1: Burgess out Daniel in
    2: Burgess out Dunkley in
    3: Burgess out Westhoff in
    Thanks.

  40. Brn says:

    30 possies from parish tonight as the final leg of my multi and I win enough for a new 70 inch tv. Big ask though..

  41. Hoot says:

    Crazy, stupid or brilliant…?

    Trade Out Whitfield and Butters (keeping libba)
    In Fyfe and Ainsworth

    I've had bad corks before.. they have lasted 4 weeks plus. Imagine a 3rd week off for Lachie….

    Excuse if mentioned already in prior post.

  42. Harro says:

    will liberatore return to the midfield and dominate I can easily trade him to a fyfe but my gut is telling me to hold but if i dont trade he may lose 20-30k!

    • TommyC99 says:

      I think he improves but the uncertainty of his role + his 142 BE. Easy swap to fyfe for mine

  43. Gainsy says:

    Youd back him to be more likely than most to like the conditions

  44. Gainsy says:

    Looking at collins to answ and butters to corbet… but that 2nd part worries me

  45. Brn says:

    Heeney seems to be held back by horse in the same way as t Mitchell was. Not getting a go at it.

    • Lazza says:

      I am so glad I haven’t bought Heeney into my team.. in terms of the Sydney structure he is a gap filler at the moment ..

      • Lazza says:

        Though he is. CD fave..3 possessions and a goal and has 30 points .. joke

        • Lazza says:

          Florent has double Heeney’s possessions and a goal, has a much larger impact on the gene and has 34 .. joke

          • TommyC99 says:

            Heeney – 4 touches, 4 tackles, 1 goal, 1 clanger

            Florent – 6 touches, 2 tackles, 1 goal, 3 clangers

            whilst florent has had 2 extra touches, hes also laid 2 less tackles and had 2 more clangers

        • KSinny says:

          He's had 5 tackles I think

  46. Holty01 says:

    Hmmm, so Horse decides to put the tag on one of the biggest butchers in the game and let’s Merrett run free. Merrett owners must be loving this.

    • Lazza says:

      The mind boggles Holty

      • Holty01 says:

        Just find it strange. Shiels rarely hurts you with ball in hand but he does find it a lot. And Merrett imo has been the most influential player in the game.
        On a positive note, I don’t own him but feel really good for the Merrett owners who held him. They copped a fair bit of grief for starting him.

        • Derek says:

          I went game tonight, couldn’t believe the room they were giving him in the first half. I knew it wouldn’t last, 3rd quarter he got a lot of attention. 4th quarter started on bench and only got on field about 10 min mark. I’ll take 129, but it was looking very special at half time.

    • CaptinSheeds says:

      Merret isn't a danger to any team. He's the most over-rated player in afl and coaches don't tag him because they don't rate him.
      80% of his disposals have zero impact or only occur because he gets in the way of a hpass on its way to another teammate. His disposals that travel more than 20 metres are as bad as shiel but CD seem to ignore that and give him maximum points whenever he touches the ball.
      He's great for your supercoach as he's the only player who scores points for being tackled. Put him in your supercoach team but not your actual team

      • Russty_ says:

        Jeez you go out of your way to bag the hell out of Merrett, under 20 different names, just leave the kid alone he's only still a young player.
        Doubt if you could do any better.

  47. Brn says:

    Heeney and Lloyd are meant to be premiums. They wont score 100 between them. Killing me

  48. dontblushbaby says:

    Can Merrett back it up in the 2nd half ? I don't have him ,just curious if he can put 4 qtrs together

  49. Russty_ says:

    Aliir Aliir was good last week but the week before last and this week he's been a bit of a spud a spud.
    P.S Heeney you suck..you suck!, you Village of the Damned looking mo-fo

  50. WTFoxtrot_58 says:

    Apolgies but FU Heeny and Horse…
    Garbage….

  51. Swans2012 says:

    Pretty much the best possible result for me tonight, swans win and Lloyd and heeney who I don’t have spud it up and become options in the next month. On another note, I don’t know how much longer I can ignore Kennedy, turning back the clock this year

  52. TommyC99 says:

    Heeney starting to become a genuine concern? Just doesn't look 100%

  53. gator59 says:

    Rage trade Heeney

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Heeney is an absolute joke. That is two sixties in consecutive weeks. I dont have the prick purely by luck, but seriously, if coaches allowed two rage trades a season, I would use one right here. What a spud.

      • gator59 says:

        I don't have him either Toppa … It was either Him or Dunkley to start with and i'm glad I went with Dunkley.. I just hope Dunkley don't crap his pants like Heeney.. It might not be a great spectacle in Ballarat with the way the weather is

    • NoHeeney says:

      The smart players did it after round two and they bore the premature ridicule of many at this site for doing so.
      I look forward to the day when those ridicule other players team structures follow up with an apology for their uneducated comments

      • Russty_ says:

        No need for sour grapes mate, no one would've expected him to deliver this shite the last few weeks, and he's still averaging 90+
        He'll probably bounce back.

    • JugHead says:

      There was a small article in Friday's Herald-Sun where Heeney said he is hardly able to train.
      I've stuck with him so far, but nearly traded him out after I read it. I should have.
      The way I see it, he keeps managing it all year and keeps getting lousy scores, or they are forced to rest him.
      Either way, I can't keep him any longer. One bad score from a Premo is expected from time to time. Two sub 70 scores in a row is a message.

  54. Stupid Coach says:

    Need some advice on which of the following trades I should do this week.
    A. Butters to Answerth and Collins to Ryan
    B. Butters to Answerth and Collins to Stewart
    C. Butters to Answerth and Constable to T Kelly
    D. Butters to Answerth and Constable to Pendles..

    Appreciate any advice, Community.

    • Holty01 says:

      If you held Constable last week, I’d go A or B. Collins has maxed out. Grab the one that suits your bye round the best. Constable only needs to play a couple of games and will make plenty more cash

      • dontblushbaby says:

        With few cats having fitness tests today, Constable could be a late in, I'm holding and looping him but he plays all good

  55. Dash says:

    218 K – 1 trade Should I use another and trade Petrucelle for Corbett or Hoff. Any other options?
    Laird, D Moore, Sicily, Duursma, Collins, Answerth (Clark, Whitfield)
    Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Setterfield, Atkins, (Hayes, Scott, Gibbons)
    Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
    Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Petrucelle, Parker (Burgess, Balta)

  56. Great fact hunt says:

    I’m am in a panic. Will there be any rookies in the next 2 weeks to paint the fence. None picked this week and only d Kelly on 1 game and he does not look a goer. What is the new plan I have no idea as I have some slow burners on the bench already and can’t afford anymore.

  57. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Any news on the playing surface at Mars Stadium Ballarat? The weather looks clear now and I think it may not be glue pot after all. The playing surface at Mars is generally highly regarded by players. Any intel?

    • gator59 says:

      The drainage on the new surface is pretty good or so they say.. Plus they have super soppers working on it too

      • Browncow says:

        So the smooth moving Bont is unlikely to get bogged in the mud – bring him in with confidence? Might put my Tom Stewart plans on hold.

    • Expert says:

      It will be green, damp and cold

  58. Brad says:

    Which 2 should I trade out this week: Clark, Petruccelle, Gibbons or Constable

  59. Pranav says:

    who is a better on field option parker or answerth?

  60. Phil says:

    Anyone know what Lloyd's price will be at next week and what his BE will likely be?

  61. Mark Fawcett says:

    Double downgrade this week of Liberatore & Scrimshaw > Answerth & Hately. Gives me $699,700 for upgrades, just hoping Liber doesn't find some form this weekend!

    Ah crap, realized afterward Hately has been omitted!!!! Damn, that was a stupid trade now!!!

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Oh well, there were over 8000 that did the same thing Mark if that makes you feel any better , he will get another game so its a trade you wont have to do in the future

  62. Lazza says:

    Libba rah on Neale today??!!

  63. TelescopicCox says:

    Gibbons to Answerth is locked in. Think I’ll hold off on my second trade. Unsure of the following options:

    1. Petruccelle to Corbett
    2. Petrucelle to Moore
    3. Danger to Cameron/Boak (Hail Mary play)

  64. Sharkmove_King says:

    Just quietly I wouldn't mind it at all if Grundy or Gawn (but not both) were a late out this week…..I'm itching to get the perma captain of my reserves team, Riley O'Brien, into the 22!!!

  65. Connor says:

    Trade Scrimshaw or Wilkie for Answerth?

  66. hedski says:

    English is a late out for the dogs.
    Not sure many people have him.

  67. Trev says:

    Neale or Grundy as captain today who's the best option

    • Derek says:

      I’m expecting an easy Collingwood win. Grundy could be tested final quarter like last week. I want Carlton to push the Pies a bit and make Grundy play out the game.

      You know that Cripps will be the standout for blues, but if they get smashed he won’t go massive.

      I’m going Grundy, mainly because every ruckman against Carlton has gone over 100 this year.

  68. TBone_9 says:

    Decided to take the plunge on Westhoff, too much upside at that price to ignore. Was able to swing Danger to the mids as an insurance policy in case he’s a late out. Here’s to hoping for some nice big premo scores this week and a Melbourne win today 🙂

  69. Catdog says:

    hey anyone have a link to carl v coll? cheers

  70. Derek says:

    I’m behind the couch watching this one. Nearly everyone I’m playing this week has Dunkley and Neale. It’s quarter time and I’m watch it through the cracks in the armrests.

  71. Lazza says:

    Which option? Which player?
    I’m a bit skinny up back with Whitfield on the bench.
    Clark to Ryan or Hurn,
    Or
    Petrol to Cameron or The Hoff or Boak

    • Fearthebeard says:

      If your skinny at back take Hurn

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Hurn.

    • Russty_ says:

      Probably Hurn Lazza or Ryan if you're looking skinny in round 13

    • Lazza says:

      Thx guys, I’m still very nervous about Danger not playing .. so have left my options to Sunday players … if Danger is out my FWD line is skinny too … though I guess most SC coaches will be as well. Also looking at my future trades and Hurn is the most expensive of my choices which means two more trades before I can upgrade and there aren’t that many rookies on the horizon … cash is going to be an issue for all of us unless we have downgrade options.

  72. gator59 says:

    Cripps, the name of the game is football NOT handball..

  73. Davo says:

    Hi community, thinking of trading Petrucelle to Corbett. Not much other forward downgrades available. Thoughts please community. Cheers.

    • No idea says:

      Thinking the same, though concerned about Corbett being a low scoring sow burner so have resisted the trade

  74. The Bont says:

    Q1: Do I take Cripps VC OF 122 or do I gamble on Fyfe

    Q2: Do I take Answerths 47 or do I use J.Clark

    Q3: Do I take Hayes 56 or do I use T.Atkins

  75. Maverick_ says:

    1. Thank god I parted ways with libba this week!!
    2. Thank god i held dunkley he is looking fantastic now his midfield minutes have increased
    3. Have realised treloar does not turn up to games til the 4th quarter
    4. Walsh may be due for a rest looks slow the past fortnight not sure i'll hold him till byes at this rate
    5. Macrae is on my radar now he may not drop as low in price as i'd hoped after today
    6. All eyes now on brayshaw to ton here

  76. Jack says:

    Take Neale's 114 or risk it with M Crouch, Coniglio, ZWilliams or Goldy? Cheers

  77. Joel says:

    lock in setterfields 67 or play ross?

    • Russty_ says:

      Probably take I reckon, last time I gambled on Ross getting more than Drew or Duursma they both ended up on 69.

  78. Russty_ says:

    Corbett's scoring like Burgess, maybe he is Burgess with a Corbett mask on?

    • Holty01 says:

      😆 hope Danger plays now otherwise I’ll have to take Corbett’s score

      • Russty_ says:

        Oh yeah I bet you are Holty!…I feel a crappy score coming on this week for me…only 2 tons so far and several underperformers, gotta love this game!

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Only the start of the round Russty, but you could be right, I think CV and C scores are going to be the big difference this round. Not looking good for me in that area, had the VC on Cripps who didn't get to my 125 cutoff, so I have the C on Gawn, who isn't going any better.

          • Russty_ says:

            Hi John, yeah Gawn seems to be stalled at the moment, but still plenty of time in the game to go, I have VC on him, it'd be nice to not have to depend on a Sunday player as C.
            4 disposals is a bit of a worry.

          • redherringfc says:

            I put the V on Gawn thinking I can use Scott as C if he stuffs it up. What I didn’t consider was who I could then put the C on, since all real options are done. Might have to roll the dice on Hawkins. Against North he could be huge.

    • Lazza says:

      He didn’t do to bad in the end … gotta get his kicks off a bit quicker … but a 59 will generate some cash …

      • Russty_ says:

        I stand corrected, he's nowhere near as bad as Burgess LOL

        • Lazza says:

          Don’t worry Russty he was shite up to 3 qtr time …. still getting used to the pace of the game .. he will get better… good thing for SC is that he is getting up the ground and contesting ..

  79. TelescopicCox says:

    Dodged one in Corbett. Would you go Petruccelle to either Moore or Hoff?

  80. Fearthebeard says:

    Daniel over Dunkley looks great 😑

  81. gator59 says:

    Brayshaw is feckin useless

  82. gator59 says:

    Old red nuts has gone gang busters

  83. dontblushbaby says:

    Hey Derek, just noticed you didn't take Grundy's score but went Clarry as your C instead , ballsy mate , well done

  84. Holty01 says:

    And just like that Oliver becomes extremely sc relevant again.

    • Lazza says:

      You b1oody beauty !! … but I think he might become an umpire at the end of his career … loves calling the umps decisions … hilarious

    • Derek says:

      i stuck the big C in him today. Pretty happy with him

      Makes up a bit from Danger C last week

    • Ja191 says:

      Geez if Oliver was neale he woulda been borderline passing 300 great game ranga

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Hes pretty much had the same stats and impact in games as today but you just never know how championship data will score him.

  85. TBone_9 says:

    Go Dees!! Geez Oliver was good, wasn’t he!?

  86. hedski says:

    Bloody hell Derek that's some big aggots not taking Grundy and captaining Oliver.
    Hats off to you sir. 👍

  87. Lazza says:

    The Hoff …. zero at qtr time !!!!!

  88. Interesting to see PRUESS was sensational in casey's big win over undefeated bombers Massive hit out tally and kicked goals as well.

  89. hedski says:

    Fielding Parker over Petrol not working out well…
    LIFT HOFFFF!!!¡

    • hedski says:

      Hmmm. Maybe Parker over Hoff was the go.

      • silversovereign says:

        I had Parker on field but decided to trade petrol to menegola last minute so that allowed me to bench Parker. Have the e on setters if danger pulls out. Just need menegola to Ton up now. Fingers crossed.

  90. Holty01 says:

    Hoff. Have been so undecided on you all week as I’ve been so unsure of the role you would play game to game. For this reason I decided to wait 1 more week and have a look. So far very happy I waited.

    • Lazza says:

      Ditto Holty

    • Derek says:

      he is playing deep forward with one of the best full backs in him. 11 at half time.

    • hedski says:

      Could be the straw that breaks my back in CAZALY league Holty.
      Starting to feel OK about the Heeney to TK trade after round 2 now, Isaac doesn't look right.

    • Maverick_ says:

      looked to be a great move Holty.
      dodged a bullet there i reckon

    • silversovereign says:

      I traded him out after round 2 holty. Saw him play live and he is not playing his floating wing type role anymore. Funnily enough he was still averaging 100 at the time because he pumped out a 150 in round 1 when he kicked 5. Best decision I’ve made so far this year. Doubt o will touch him again unless he goes back to his mr fix it role.

      • Derek says:

        he started on the wing for the 3rd quarter, had 4 touches in first 5 mins, then they sent him to full back

        • Holty01 says:

          I noticed that as well Derek. Thought he would salvage a reasonable score but didn’t last long. The unknown with him this year stopped me however the same reasons stopped me from bringing in Dunkley this week. I think Dunkley will stay mids now that they are winning.

  91. Lazza says:

    Geez Sam Walsh has some serious competition in Rozee for Rising Star … line ‘em in the schoolyard right now and Rozee gets the pick due to his X factor … gonna be an absolute match winner..

    • Sharkmove_King says:

      We haven't seen Rankine yet! Still think Lukousis will be a gun too. Looks like a ripper draft, but not deep like '01

  92. Lazza says:

    The Hoff on 11 at half time … Darling and Kennedy on 9 …. gee, how many folks went for the ‘value’ fallen premo…

  93. Lazza says:

    Faaaarrk… Matt Crouch injured .. done for the game sitting on 48

  94. Fisherdann says:

    Field Atkins or Ross?

  95. Holty01 says:

    I thought I had avoided a lot of the carnage but Crouch is done for the night. My rank might plummet a bit😢

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Mate, you get that with SC, others that are high ranked will have him also , stay strong

  96. Rocksta_ says:

    Like a few others, I was going great guns until M Crouch got injured and Parker laid a massive turd. The day started great with Macrae, Grundy, Dunkley, and Oliver. She’s a tough game alright

  97. Lazza says:

    Parker gets 26 and still makes $$s

  98. Derek says:

    Gee Sloane was good in the last quarter, made up for MCrouch.

    Even though I don’t have Macrae or Neale, pretty happy with my midfield POD’s of Merrett, Oliver and Sloane this week.

  99. Maverick_ says:

    Brayshaw, O'Brien and MCrouch are going to seriously hurt me this week after what was a very strong start with oliver dunkley gawn and treloar posting tons.. Brayshaws done I cannot wait too get Macrae/neale this week

    • Sam_01 says:

      Yeah I think a lot of people were starting strong then had turds laid, brought in Boak and he spudded it, still very happy to take his 80 odd after what he dished up,
      1754 with danger tkelly Williams and stack to go, Hope danger plays so I don’t cop Parker’s turd emergency score

  100. TommyC99 says:

    Jeez SuperCoach can be a cruel game. Was absolutely flying after huge tons from macrae, Dunkley, Grundy, Oliver before crouch got injured and Parker laid a huge turd. Am 1600 from 17 with the C on Fyfe, but Williams is my only premium left (presuming Danger is out).

  101. Gav says:

    Is constable a chance to play? Has Danger been named 100 percent.

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Might be a wait and see Gav to when the teams are announced, their VFL Team don't play until 2.30 either

  102. COREYSC says:

    Gee I hope Dangerfield plays rest him forward for the whole match and he kicks a bag of goals! That would resurrect a poor weekend which looked promising early!

  103. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hi community.

    I went into this round so excited and feeling really good about things. DANGGGG…………

    Check this out…..

    M Crouch 54 (Cooked), ROB 66, B Smith 71, Libba 72, and Walsh 70.

    You think I am done? WRONG……Lets keep going. Then there is Duursma 61, Moore 66, Drew 59, Parker 25, and LAST and LEAST the Hoff 41………What a tosser you are Hoff.

    And top it all off, I decided to trade in Mundy instead of Oliver this week. FML…………..

    However, it is Sunday, it's mothers day, and there is still hope.

    Despite all that BS above, I have Fyfe C, Mundy, Coniglio, Sicily, Williams, Dangerfield, and Tim Kelly to play and still projected to go 2125. With the cattle taking the field today, I reckon I can still squeeze out 2200.

    Aaaaaah. This SC caper, dont we just love it!! Cheers community. TH

    • Greetiungs Toppa Yeah I think we all came crashing yesterday I still think there's life in Daniels even with suk there Oliver was simply superb and how young Derek give up Grundy's 141 to put the C on Oli well he is either a genius or forgot .wish it was me Happy mum's day to all the mumscheers NDD

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        I think Derek forgot! He is human after all. He will probably disagree mind you! Good luck today. NDD

        • Derek says:

          I had a few problems with my donut loophole Bines. If Danger was a late out I would cop a zero if I used him. I’d got rid of Scott and Burgess, so My only other non player was Constable, and I was worried he might play if Danger out. So Danger was still messing with my team.

          Danger out, I’ll get Parker’s 26. So it wasn’t much better than a zero.

          • TOPHAWK1 says:

            Nightmare scenarios all over the place. I think we have all been affected somewhere. Hope Sunday brings us half a dozen tonnes. Good luck today. TH

    • Booooom Time says:

      😩 That is some serious carnage TH. Let’s see what Mr Danger delivers as a mother’s day pressie.😬🙏🏻😂
      You can’t keep a good TopHawk down. Still a chance at 2200 💪

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Thats right BT. TH will keep punching. Danger better turn up with the chocolates for mum and TH today. I need 5 goals out of him this arvo. I reckon he will be slinking around up forward today. Libba turning into Oliver this week. Yep, the 175 has bolted but he is a keeper and will only go up by only $15K this week. (Libba down by $35K mind you) Total cost of waiting a week, $50K. Such is life! Good luck today BT.

    • Holty01 says:

      I think we have all been hit with carnage this week. Although some more then others as we can see by your side Hawk. 2200 will be a very acceptable score this week I’d imagine.

    • Derek says:

      Mundy is a big call, especially with Blakely probably back next week.

      I got the Hoff as well, and Libba, And MCrouch, and Durrsma, and Heeney and Drew. So you are not alone. Still might get close to 2300.

      Decided to field my boy Scrimshaw ahead of Lockhart, Durrsma or Answerth. Give him strength

    • Russty_ says:

      Painful week for me …be lucky to crack 2k I think, too many spuds and Crouch ugh

      • hedski says:

        Same

        • Russty_ says:

          Reckon you'll still beat me in Mag 7 mate, it's be the clash of the Titan CRAP scores hehe

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          The Martini Police are down as well this week. I reckon most coaches are going to eat turds. Hope today brings us tonnes!!

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Absolute shocker for me so far. Cant believe I didnt just grab Oliver this week. On the positive side, with Danger playing I dodge the Parker turd. Had Drew on the mid bench for the first time this year. Wont have to chomp on his turd either. Praying for a Fyfe miracle driven Sunday come back. Good luck mate.

        • Russty_ says:

          Because of the doubt on Danger, I copped Parker's and Drew's turds although I would've copped Drew's anyway, good luck to you too Hawk, there's always next week I guess!

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Had no excess to sc today son had soccer then straight to Mother’s Day do. Forget mobil at home couldn’t put Scott on for Atkins and take Lockhart 80. Get home now and see he really shit the bed. There is no way l wouldn’t have takin Lockhart score. Things like that really get you down.

    • Swans2012 says:

      Got me by 3 in triggs toppa! Bloody mundy…grrrr<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;

  104. Trades says:

    If Danger is out, what midfielder should I bring in for a Hail Mary? Josh Kelly, Cunnington, Duncan or Ablett?

    • Holty01 says:

      I think you’ll find most will hold if he doesn’t play. But if you have to make the trade, Cunningham or Duncan. The other 2 will miss games

  105. Gainsy says:

    Went collins to answ and butters to menegola in the end and stayed away from the hoff. Was hoping to get oliver in next week but that looks less inviting now…. lets hope menegola can go okay today

  106. Beezneez says:

    Selwood in for Menegola

    • Russty_ says:

      And Constable in for Selwood lol

      • Beezneez says:

        Yeah Russty. Wrote a reply to Shake above. Was always on the cards. Pays to always be wary of all possibilities. This one we had the possibility of Danger and Constable being in or out. Talk about making it hard for us.

  107. Holty01 says:

    Danger is a starter.

  108. hedski says:

    Selwood now out!!!!
    Constable in!

  109. RoyWetard says:

    With news of Danger IN I'll be rolling with C Fyfe and Stack on field as opposed to taking VC Grundy and putting Scott on field while taking Hayes' 55.

  110. Gainsy says:

    Reliable lineup source?

  111. Ja191 says:

    Geelong should really be fined for this constant late minute change crap

  112. The unsullied says:

    Is constable definitely in?

  113. hedski says:

    Yep, Constable in, Selwood out.
    It now appears on the article on AFL live app.
    A few people might get caught out having the C on Constable thinking to use him as a loophole.

    • Shake_n_bake says:

      Yep ur right

    • Beezneez says:

      One minute Selwood in then he's out. That's why I'm glad I used Whitfield as my loophole and left Constable on the bench. Could swap on field with Stack (or Ross) but might leave as is. Whichever one I choose the other will probably outscore him.

  114. Holty01 says:

    So Danger strained the medial ligament in his knee last week. He could hardly move. He then has been unable to train all week but apparently has passed a medical test to play. Something is not sounding right. And if he does play, surely he doesn’t play midfield,……does he? We all know we get frustrated when Scott plays him forward as he doesn’t score anywhere near as well. 5 min to go before teams are locked in and I’m really scratching my head what to do even if he does play. 🤔

  115. Dontblushbaby says:

    Constable or Ross on field ? Already have Answerth with E, Think I will go:Constable after all the drama

  116. UpBeat says:

    Danger for captain this week lads? I'm not scared it's done!

  117. Holty01 says:

    no Strapping on Dangers knee, that is good enough for me.

  118. Pman says:

    Hi Community I've completely stuffed up my Captain selection in the last 2 weeks with Dangers 25 last week and Cripps 93 the week before and are desperate to avoid a hat trick of bad choices this week. With that in mind should I take Cripps 120 as VC or do we think Fyfe (who I traded in this week) can go bigger against the Tigers? I want to reward my new trade in with the Captaincy but should I take the conservative option and lock in Cripps 120? Thoughts/feedback appreciated….

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Pman, the conservative approach would be to take Cripp's score , you never know what could happen with Fyfe.
      I'm going Fyfe cause I had Gawn as VC and my score's buggered anyway this week.
      Good luck.

      • Pman says:

        Cheers Rusty am keen to get on Fyfe too but are a bit gun shy after the previous two. My cut off used to be 130 which I reduced to 125 so given Cripps scored 120 I probably should stick to my guns and roll the dice on Fyfe…..watch this come back and bite me on the bum!

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Hi Pman, I had Cripps as my VC and my cut off is 125, so I went with Gawn , lost 12pts , but that's how I play it, black and white, the only time it's gone against me so far this season. So, glad to see you are sticking to your guns, that said, if you can still win your league games with the Cripps score, I'd take it. I don't normally worry about that stuff, but I know most people on here probably do.

  119. Been waiting for Curtis Taylor to debut,talented kid might even come in early with the Bont

  120. JohnDJ59 says:

    I can see Clark and Parker leaving my team tonight, they have done their job sitting on my bench making money, but that will be coming to an end after this week, so thank you and goodbye.

  121. Derek says:

    I should have checked. Didn’t think Constable was playing so put Atkins on field.

    Is Atkins injured?

    • Lazza says:

      He’s only on 13 , 22 mins into the 2nd qtr.. but no injured sign at this point

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah he has a band-aid on Lazza, tweaked his hammy early in Q2, haven't seen him out there lately.

        • Derek says:

          Watch Constable get 100.

          • Russty_ says:

            Hopefully they do some work on him and he gets back out there for ya Derek, Constable's looking ok on 12 disposals, 40 points.
            Atkins only 44% Tog so he missed most of the 2nd.

  122. hedski says:

    Atkins just rubbing salt into the wound of a shitty week now.
    Go cats.

  123. George says:

    Traded out Constable last night for Cunnington and now I miss out on his cash generation. Doesn’t Scott care about SuperCoach 🤬

  124. Maverick_ says:

    they are kidding themselves if they think that bump on gary rohan will get a week. that was as fair as they come it was shoulder on shoulder completely accidental that there heads clashed! I never like to see blokes injured/concussed but that was a great bump just a very unlucky outcome

  125. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    I hope there's a fwd rookie on the bubble, Parker is absolutely being rage traded when the lockout ends

  126. BoltonsBlues says:

    We are not worthy, all praise T Kelly you superstar

  127. Connor says:

    Wow the choice to double downgrade after I decided to wait another week on Kelly hurts

  128. TBone_9 says:

    I think this is going to be a horrible week for me. I’m starting to get really worried about a few premos I own in particular. Getting T. Kelly in might have to be a priority for me. Here’s to hoping Fyfe cap can save my week!

  129. Maverick_ says:

    has Jeremy Cameron hurt that same shoulder from last week? this week is getting worse & worse 🙁

    • Russty_ says:

      Think it's just the typical key forward scenario Mav….feast or famine, if he has a good defender on him could be slim pickings.

  130. JohnDJ59 says:

    Tim Kelly has put my weekend back on track, looking at 2100, not a great score but better than what I was looking at, also just looked at my leagues and I should win seven of nine, Neil you are killing me in Elite of the Elite.

    • Russty_ says:

      I'd take that John…I'll be lucky to win any leagues this week, Heeney to Kelly looking like a very good trade now mate.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I'll be happy with that score Russty, yesterday I didn't think I would get to 2000. The first two weeks after I traded out Heeney for Kelly I did feel a bit sick, but since then it's worked out really well.

    • hedski says:

      You'll get me in the JR Mega League JDJ.
      Did you trade out Danger????

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I am slowly catching up to you hedski and yes I did trade out Danger, I'm being fairly aggressive with my trades this year, I'm usually very conservative with my trades and end up with one or two left over come season end, so thought I would try something different.

    • about time i did something john

  131. Russty_ says:

    Who's taking Gongigliog's points this year?…seems a bit of a shadow of his former gun self.
    Hopefully that'll kick-start him a bit for those of you that have him.

  132. Steeeve says:

    Any possible bubble boys next week? Need to generate some cash from these maxed out rookies

  133. Russty_ says:

    Didn't realise Cameron was Jewish, he's wearing a Vaseline Kippah…lol

  134. Derek says:

    Where is Scrimshaw? Put him on ground ahead of Lockhart and Durrsma. Is he injured?

  135. TommyC99 says:

    I know you generally score less points during junk time. But williams had 2 effective kicks in a passage of play with 10min to go and didnt score a point for it. How does scoring in junk time work?

    • Russty_ says:

      Scoring in junk time is often Champion Data allocating points to players for nothing Tommy to make it up to the 3300 points they're required to allocate.
      They can also take away from other players though to seem to distribute points evenly.

  136. Russty_ says:

    Fyfe I love you …that is all. 🙂

  137. Ja191 says:

    Amazing 12 point and 6 3/4 quarter for worpel, just doesn’t have the tank right now. Will be a good player once he develops one

    • Finnius says:

      Still think he could break out in the second half of the season mate. Clarko loves him and he has the right attitude. Just needs to run harder and clean up his disposal.

  138. NoLanguage96 says:

    Surely Sicily scores more than 89?! Bloke has had 27, 9 marks and a goal

  139. hedski says:

    2016 and I'm done, no-one playing in the last game.
    In all honesty I'm happy to crack 2k even if it was my lowest score for the season.
    Parker and Atkins are in the firing line tomorrow, only have $40k in the bank so not sure what to do yet
    Look like losing 10/10 leagues. Ouch.
    How is everyone else traveling?

    • Sam_01 says:

      2097 with stack left to play, what’s par this week?
      Agree Atkins and Parker to go, but we have nobody to go too! Same boat there, aswell as burgess stinking up my bench

    • Maverick_ says:

      I’ll be lucky to crack 2000 hedski.
      O’Brien, Cameron, brayshaw, BSmith and MCrouch the main villains.. I’ll drop well out of the top 10k now

      • hedski says:

        Quite a few villains in my lineup too Mav,. started well with Dunks, Hurn as pods going well.
        Angus, Cogs and MCrouch killed my mids this week.
        And bringing in the Hoff….let's not forget the Hoff. Prick.

        • Maverick_ says:

          Yeah I had Oliver hurn treloar Dunkley Gawn all holding up there end then it all went pear shaped. Ross finished up on 15 with an injury What a disaster

      • most of those are ok just a pity for you it was all of them Mav What's your team name Mav

    • Russty_ says:

      You could still beat me Hed…Fyfe hasn't done much in the 2nd.

    • JEL says:

      Currently 1914 with Fyfe as C and Stack to finish off the round

    • BoltonsBlues says:

      I need Ross to beat Stack by 1 point to claim victory in my cash league
      2k with Ross and Fyfe with a half to go, anywhere close to 2100 will be good week considering, Crouch, scrimshaw and Ross all off with injury at sometime, GAwn captain, Libba, Heeney, Lloyd, Witherden all causing me grief in one week

    • Derek says:

      2250. Won 7/10 so might be above average.

      NDD beating me in 2 leagues. Would have been close if I new Constable was playing today.

      Atkin, MCrouch and Scimshaw all injury effected. Not sure what Westhoff’s excuse was.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I think you could still get a win against me hedski, Fyfe has slowed down and Ross is going to get a lower score than my bench players. In fact I think you will win, with Ross done for the day, Fyfe would have to go huge in the second half for me to be any chance.

    • The Ranger says:

      I'll be lucky to make 2K
      Only five players tonned up so far.
      Yuk.

    • silversovereign says:

      Looking at about 2200 if Fyfe doesn’t keep going backwards.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Bloody hideous round again Hedski. If Fyfe ends up with a decent captain's score I am good for 2100-2150 Will take that after those turds listed this morning. I reckon par is around 2100

    • Marcus says:

      Looks like i will getting my lowest score of the year, around the 2000ish mark.
      Not helped by injuries to M Crouch, Ross and a bit of Tom Stewart.
      I expect my rankings to crash a few thousand places (Currently ranked at 472)

    • Holty01 says:

      This might be the first week I score outside the 2200’s. Been a mixed week with Crouch going down and plenty of rookies underperforming but at the same time been happy with my premos.

  140. Fearthebeard says:

    Is Ross farking injured?

  141. Ken says:

    My team is done..

    I've been holding Whitfield on my bench, Matt Crouch injured now, had both Atkins and Ross on my field (injured) and had constable on my bench and also had to play Parker with his 25

    Arghhh see you guys next year

  142. Fearthebeard says:

    Can anyone tell me what ross ended up finishing on?

    Also stack and baker scores?

  143. JohnDJ59 says:

    Looks like I am going to lose a few games I thought I had won, Ross was my last different player and I only needed another ten points on top of the 13 he scored.

    • Fearthebeard says:

      I feel your pain John. I was thinking I had a fairly comfortable win.

      My op had midfield emergency he looped for Constable (has 71 or something) then comstables late in (I have him on bench and was at Mother’s Day lunch) then was like oh well. Just need Coniglio to even that out he ends up on 75 (20 down on constanle)

      Then have stack and Ross needing to outscore baker by 17 on current scores. Ross inured on 13-14 now leaves it a genuine contest that I should have had in the bag. Hopefully stack brings it home for
      Me over baker.

  144. Fearthebeard says:

    Lol bloody tigers fan here riding stack home and telling baker to go sit !!! Anyone able to give me a update on their scores?

    Stacks kicked one and had a good intercept inside 50 too since the post someone else said he was down 20. Bakers missed a goal that’s all I’ve noticed.

  145. Holty01 says:

    Bloody Fyfe. Keep ur elbows down.

  146. Fearthebeard says:

    If the scores dint change I lose by 3 when today I simply needed Conglio to outscore a loop hole mid rookie that got 71 instead he ended up having constanle play.

    One bad luck there with Coniglio getting 75.

    Then move to last game simply need Ross and stack to outscore baker by 17.

    Ross injures on 15.

    Baker up by 2 on that ap……

  147. Kewbie Bear says:

    Needed 5 more points from stack. Earned 0 points for a mark and effective kick at the end. Bugger.

  148. Russty_ says:

    Still won 6 out of 10 leagues with 2096, didn't expect to win any, or crack 2000 haha, bloody lucky!

  149. redherringfc says:

    Won 1 by 1, lost 1 by 2 and had a draw.

  150. Rocksta_ says:

    2247 this week. Pretty happy given I had M Crouch injured and Parker on field. Given it was the highest score in my league, should rise a few ranking places this week I reckon.

    • Russty_ says:

      Good score Rocksta….solid for this week.

      • Rocksta_ says:

        Cheers Russty.
        I Can’t quite crack a big score but have been chugging along consistently over the past 4 weeks. I think we all need to start thinking about some serious bye planning right now. That’s when the rankings will undergo a big shake up, either up or down.

  151. Holty01 says:

    Shout out to Neil (NDD) with a massive 2358. Awesome score mate.

  152. Rob says:

    2363 prior to final scaling

  153. Finnius says:

    2241 this week – pretty happy considering a lot of middling scores. 550k in the bank and going double up this week – things are on the rise. Hopefully going inside the top 100…

  154. TOPHAWK1 says:

    After confessing to the community this morning and being in the depths of despair with all those turds littered across my front lawn, I just had to be extra nice to my mother (and mother in law) today. Good onya mums!!

    Maybe the SC gods listened and gave TH a really nice Sunday for a change!

    Ended up with 2153 after all that Saturday BS. How did we all end up folks?

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      2213 for me this week.

      Would of been handy to have Whitfield.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Nice score BB! Traded Whitfield out 2 weeks ago. Not really super smart but I needed to push my team forward. He will be back next week and I will want him back after the byes. Cheers mate.

    • Russty_ says:

      Well done mate, a bit shizenhouzer here with just shy of 2100 but still won 6 out of 10, so not bad really.
      Sorry to all those I beat lol

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        You still winning Russty! A week or a even a friggin day is a long time in footy. This morning I thought I was toast. I won 6 out of my 9 leagues. Lost in my own GNR league AGAIN, but had a very tough win in the A graders league. Onwards and upwards my friend!

        • Russty_ says:

          Thanks mate…I moved up to 16th in the JR Mega-League this week…hahah, I might even make the bottom 8 finals.
          So Many good Coaches in there, hope they don't hold it against me dragging the League down lol

    • Booooom Time says:

      Way to go Top Hawk! Booom Time had some Sat Drama with 55 Newnes And a Myriad of 60s from Port.
      Handy 2256`To finish the round. A lot of work to do, and hopefully ROB can bounce back. Libba to Oliver on the cards for next week.

      • Beezneez says:

        You beat me by 40 Boooooom after underwhelming scores from Coniglio and Williams (slightly injury affected). Dropped me from 1st to 3rd. Could have been a mucj better score if not for Parker and M Crouch.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          Bloody hell! Did Booooomtime beat you? He probably had one of those rounds where he got lucky. Suck it up and go again next week mate.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Kabooomm! Noticed you nailed a big fish in my GNR league. WTF? What a scalp getting Morphys Maulers! BANG! Cheers mate. TH

    • Holty01 says:

      2306 for me Hawk. Copped theCrouch injury but managed to avoid some of the carnage and held firm with some trades and played the right rookies.

      • Derek says:

        That’s good Holty. Avoided all the main problems, you should stay in top 20 I think.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Holty you are the man! So consistent with 2200 scores every week. That 2306 tonight will really set you up mate. That is massive! Congrats! TH

      • Booooom Time says:

        Awesome work Holty! Up to 5th overall with tat 2308. Congrats 🙂

    • Danners says:

      2310, annoying having Parker on the field, but hopefully I can revive my season now

    • Pranav says:

      2184 really happy with that score main thing I’m worried about is think I have made a mistake by trading in Daniel.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Excellent score mate. I tossed up between those forward boys as well. Ended up going Mundy. Daniel is a great pick mate!

    • Derek says:

      2250. Still spewing about Constable. Didn’t think he was playing so put Atkins on field for a 12.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Nice score Derek. Ouch. You hurting? I traded Constable out for Mundy. I needed a to activate a mid/fwd swing set to cover for Danger or for the longer term. Did it and very pleased. Mundy 110 SC. Oliver 175SC and capitein!! Cant beat that mate.

    • 2358 so got to be happy Some great battles with Gator and derek but came thru to win all 10.Mundy might come back into the team or Bont not sure cheers boys NDD

    • Ned_Starkers says:

      2268, happy with that after a pretty dismal 2050 last week.
      Just outside the top 1,500 so not complaining.

      • Russty_ says:

        Nice comeback ned, you must be proud of your Daughter killing that night-king mofo….that sure took the pressure off.

    • NoLanguage96 says:

      2196 not too bad considering

    • TBone_9 says:

      Ended with 2064 this week Hawk. Gotta put the bad weeks behind us and look towards how to improve from there. Any trades you got your eye on for this week mate? Not many downgrade options I can see

    • Lazza says:

      Dodged a few bullets but took a couple of arrows with injuries to MCrouch (54) and Ross (15) and had Parker (25) on field too.. ended up with 2122… Shake said I had nothing to worry about, he was right… cruised home to pip him by 7 points .. Hahaa.. sorry Shake… Derek smashed me though ..
      gotta laugh.. traded out Clarke and he outscores my replacement ..

    • silversovereign says:

      2231 and into 508. Could be a few challenges this week. Top work holty and fin.

  155. JohnDJ59 says:

    2022 for me, my lowest score for the season, won five of nine, won one close one against hedski in the JR Mega-League and lost two close ones. It just dawned on me that if I had taken Cripps VC score and not put the C on Gawn,, those 3 and 7 point loses would have turned into wins. Still, it turned out better than I was expecting yesterday afternoon. There will be more than a few rookies ready for trading this coming week, will just have to pick the right two.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Dont follow me mate. Traded out Constable this week. Then he was a late in and tonned up. Great outcome…….

      You still posted a decent score mate. Lick off the wounds and fire up again for next week. Cheers mate.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Thanks T.H. I traded out Scott on Friday, mainly because he wasn't playing, it was either him or Clark, but once he was selected, I gave him a second chance and he came through. I know how you feel though, I traded out Gibbons, on the weekend of his ton.

    • hedski says:

      Nice win JD, looking fwd to the next battle.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Thanks hedski, I didn't think I would get there after Scott was injured, needed a big half by Fyfe and he delivered, Stack's second half wasn't too bad either. So we are now even in the close games stakes and it's only my win in the Elite of the Elite League in round 5 that separates us. I seem to be getting into a lot of close games this season, winning and losing, mainly losing by under 10 pts, even the Leagues I'm in are close, not much between the 3rd and 16th teams.

  156. Steeeve says:

    Scored 2222 bit above par?

  157. Fearthebeard says:

    is it time to look at selling Walsh? Can get neale or jelly in for him?

    • Sam_01 says:

      Locking in Jkelly this week myself mate, catchya later walsh

    • terrence says:

      whos jelly?

      • Sam_01 says:

        Josh kelly

        • dontblushbaby says:

          Yep , Libba or Walsh to Jelly for me , but can't decide atm

          • Sam_01 says:

            Steele or Walsh for me, Steele is in that category of people that need to go, and doesn’t even score much better than Walshy either, Steele will score more but walsh more bye freindly for me

          • Derek says:

            Why did JKelly miss last week. I missed getting Fyfe so I could Getz Kelly this week, but his injury worried me

            • Peter says:

              Hi Derek /community looking at upgrading walsh to sloane or Jelly i have already used 10 trades if i do sloane will leave we $100k to fix other areas especially forward line thoughts? Help appreciated

              • Derek says:

                i'm a Sloane owner. It worries me how much time he spends up forward, having said that it does keep him away from being tagged.

                he was massive on the weekend in the last quarter, two big marks and fierce at the ball.

                I traded him in round 3 when i got rid of Mundy (not real bright) and was the best of what i could get at the time. He hasn't increased in value much and i'm not convinced he is top 8, but he will be close.

                he is very good value, him and Rocky if you don't have him. I would probably go Rocky ahead of Sloane and save even more cash. It costs $28k to go walsh to Rocky.

                kelly is an injury worry and i'm not sure if his game on the weekend was really 150+

                  Thanks Derek i think i might hold Walsh to the byes i also have the same reservations about Jelly. I can aford the bont but i also think he spends too much time forward so is abit hit or miss. I am bringing in Dunkley this week also so might just save a trade

    What a shocking week of Supercoach this week, started off ranked in the top 2100 with Whitfield on my bench for another week and ended up with my lowest score of the season with 1947, even with grundys 282 points as captain, only T.Kelly/Grundy/Cripps/Neale/Gawn and Laird went 100+ for me, while lloyd/heeney/b.smith/z.williams/boak/hoff/libba/M.Crouch underperformed/got injured, while I had players such as answerth/parker/drew/duursma/corbett on field, can't wait to bounce back next week and trade atkins + parker out this week with 225k in the bank already and bring in fyfe or macrae

  159. HarryH76 says:

    Gee SC is a fickle beast. Lost my league match by 25 and had M Crouch and Atkins on field. And thanks C Scott…. I didn't want to trade out Constable but did so on Friday thinking he won't be picked in a hurry. Don't AFL coaches know SC results are much more important than 4 points? Haha

  160. Trades says:

    Went a Hail Mary for the league win and traded Danger to Kelly and would’ve won if Bolton scored his projected…. Bolton…

  161. dontblushbaby says:

    Nank might miss a few ? we should see some good increases with Balta, he played well tonight and the Tigers will persist with him as he can cover a lot of positions , he can play

  162. Top score says:

    Guy in league scored 2369, might be top?

  163. redherringfc says:

    There are absolutely no decent downgrade targets this week.

  164. Daz says:

    Thought was going to lose rank from 50th with 2211 but went up to 43rd! Holty in league’ a graders’ is 5th now, wow!

  165. Derek says:

    Holty is 5th overall. Seriously good mate

    • Russty_ says:

      I taught him everything he knows, then he disregarded all that, and is doing really well now 🙂
      All jokes aside mate, you could make up those deficit points in one game easy.

      • dontblushbaby says:

        Excellent work Brad, I will be interested if you up or downgrade Walsh this week ? also Atkins ?

        • Holty01 says:

          I’ll be honest, will depend on Crouch and Fyfe. If one is out, I’ll hold Walsh.

          • Derek says:

            How are your byes looking? Do you need to worry about them with your trading?

            • Holty01 says:

              They are looking ok mate. Rd 13 and 14 are the ones lacking some premos but all in all should be able to navigate the byes alright

          • Lazza says:

            If Gazza gets off last week, then Fyfe gets off .. be interesting to see if Gazza gets off again this week..

            • Russty_ says:

              Gazza's looking like the elbow fend off king this week, as well as last, he might not get off this time.

    • Holty01 says:

      👍

    • Beezneez says:

      Congrats on the ranking Holty that is huge.

    • The Ranger says:

      Keep it up Holty mate, great job so far.
      You don't need me to tell you but make sure you get your byes right, it can ruin a good season pretty quickly.

  166. Russty_ says:

    Get around the Holt, not Holt or Holty…but, The Holt , kinda like The Bont. 🙂

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Holty 5th overall tonight! WOW! Let's back him in and give Lek, Patch, Damo, JR, Higgo, and Crouching a big thumbs up. The JR community is getting stronger by the day. Go the Holt!!

    • Holty01 says:

      Cheers bud

  167. Mick foley says:

    Terrible week, lucky I had Oliver and kelly saving me from a sub 2000 score. So many options this week and only 2 trades…. Libba and Walsh out, macrae and jelly in. Bang bang!

  168. Holty01 says:

    Cheers all for the support. I’ll keep plugging away and hopefully do the community proud. Also get behind Fin and Daz as well, they aren’t far behind.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Well done Holty01, I just saw you are now ranked 5th overall, you just keep pumping out those big scores, even on the low scoring weekends, it just might be your year, even if you don't win the big one, just being in the top 1,000 is something to be proud about.

    • gator59 says:

      Great stuff Holty keep it going mate.. Also Finn and Dazz .. Good luck and cheer on Jock's Deciples

    • Lazza says:

      Good on you Holty… great stuff ..

    • What I enjoy most about you three is what you all give back to the community thru this forum. It's great to be talented but even greater to be humble as all three of you are unlike the FAKE TALENT from last year. FINN DAZ and HOLTLY take a bow NDD

    • Swans2012 says:

      Keep up the good work holt!! Stick to your game, don’t panic

  169. Darcy skepper says:

    Is Josh Kelly the real deal? Don't know to much about him saw hes been out a couple of rounds but scoring well, is he injury prone??? thanks..

    • Derek says:

      I had it all planned to bring him in this week, but he missed last week with some injury, makes me worry about his selection. He is a big POD and should be easy too 8 if he isn’t carrying any injury

      • Darcy skepper says:

        okay thank you, wouldn't mind him as a POD, just worried it might backfire.

        • Daz says:

          I want him but made a promise to myself to stay away from players that play 16 games a year, I don't have fyfe either for the same reason, hurts watching them pump out 150s but if they miss 4 games and you eat 4 60s from emergencies the real average of your score isn't so great.

          • Derek says:

            same here mate. Didn't get fyfe because of that elbow. hurts to see him doing so well. JKelly the same now. He missed two weeks ago, worrys me now.

            don't know why i just didn't start with JPK and Pendlebury like i've done every year.

    • Beezneez says:

      He was all class yesterday. Hunting the ball and finding his target with precise disposal. Was in my side all last year but same worry with being injury prone. He certainly looked over whatever kept him on the sidelines.

  170. Fearthebeard says:

    Is o,brien on the block now? If I move him or Moore on I can get neale in and strengthen my mids without parting with Walsh yet.

    • Derek says:

      i'm hoping to keep ROB until round 13 and hope he plays. really need all hands on deck for the round 13 bye (Grundy and gawn out).

      If you don't have any ruck cover, need to hold him for as long as you can

      ROB still has a 33 BE. but with his 123 dropping out next week and his 66 staying in average for a couple more weeks he won't make much more cash, so if he is just a cash cow for you he can go next week.

      I'm starting to like Moore as a decent player, i thought he could have done better this week but if the ball doesn't get down to defense there isn't much you can do. As a D5/6 or a F5/6 over the byes will do ok. i'd worry about the real rookies first

  171. Fearthebeard says:

    I need to strengthen my midfield. Neale, bony, Oliver or jelly?

  172. Sam_01 says:

    The time has come to start worrying about the byes now boys! Only gonna do one last upgrade before they hit, most likely Whitfield in! Gotta start being real careful with our rookies, who we chop and who we bring in

    • Derek says:

      yes. i'm even looking at the rookies with the best JS to hold them a bit longer to get me through the byes rounds.

      last year traded out rookies about now, but the replacment rookies where aweful and i couldn't field a full team in any of the bye rounds.

      If Drew, hore, lockhart, Haynes, Ross, Constable, scrimshaw, answerth all max out but are playing ok and holding their value, i'll be keeping a few.

      • Sam_01 says:

        Yeah I’ll be looking at doing the same I thing Derek, will have to stagnate team progression just to get us through, I’ll probably have to do a fair bit of cheeky sideways slightly upwards trading throughout the byes aswell which is annoying, I need to start building my bank aswell to allow me to do this while upgrading my team
        Most annoying part is majority of my rookies have the first bye so trading them doesn’t even help
