SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 8

Published by Kev on

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. Barron casts his eye over the state leagues to find the next rookie gem in Around the Grounds. Don’t want your captain to score 26 again? Check out Damo’s captain choices and Matty takes a look at the best rookie, premo, and POD picks for your trading dollars in his weekly cheat sheet.  

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)

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

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.


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).


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.


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.


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.


BrownlowBoy · 10/05/2019 at 10:38

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 · 10/05/2019 at 10:48

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

    SC_Kev7 · 10/05/2019 at 10:58

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

g. · 10/05/2019 at 10:49

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 · 10/05/2019 at 11:03

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 11:07

    Waste of a trade.

    Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:09

    I wouldnt

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 17:42

    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 · 14/05/2019 at 17:31

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

Ryan · 10/05/2019 at 10:51

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 · 10/05/2019 at 11:00

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

    SC_Kev7 · 10/05/2019 at 11:04

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

      Ryan · 10/05/2019 at 11:10

      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 · 10/05/2019 at 15:59

        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 · 10/05/2019 at 17:12

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

Jord · 10/05/2019 at 10:57

Trade Butters or Libba for Answorth

    Josh · 10/05/2019 at 11:46

    Butters every day of the week

      Jord · 10/05/2019 at 16:03

      Getting rid of Libba generates some nice cash, Butters price ain’t changing this week

        Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:12

        How much you losing on keeping libba another 3-4 weeks?

Pranav · 10/05/2019 at 11:06

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

TelescopicCox · 10/05/2019 at 11:08

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)

    alex sabes · 14/05/2019 at 17:33

    petrucelle for corbett

TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 11:09

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

    KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 14:51


      Soothsayer · 10/05/2019 at 18:16

      I’m doing Fyfe too

BobbyGee · 10/05/2019 at 11:10

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 · 10/05/2019 at 11:49

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 16:04

    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 ..

FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 12:07

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

Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 12:23

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.

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 16:05

    I have a keen eye on JJ … should be hitting his straps this week..

FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 12:23

Westhoff or Daniels?

Or hold a week for a decision?

    FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 12:26

    Or even Mundy?

Redd · 10/05/2019 at 12:32

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

    Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 12:48

    140 isn't it? He might make that anyway.

      Redd · 10/05/2019 at 13:10

      Cheers Rick!

J-Dog · 10/05/2019 at 13:01

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


    KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 14:50

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

RealDealNeale · 10/05/2019 at 13:27

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 · 10/05/2019 at 16:12

    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_ · 10/05/2019 at 16:41

      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.

        Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:43

        Im waiting boak out and may even skip if he doesn't have a shocker soon

          Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 17:54

          Yeah Gainsy, I'm more interested in maybe picking up Marshall and Whitfield in the coming weeks

Josh · 10/05/2019 at 13:50

Butters and Petrucelle out for Answerth and Daniel??

    KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 14:49

    Sounds good

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 16:12

    Tick.. big tick..

LordDeb · 10/05/2019 at 13:57

Butters is out, this is for sure<img src="; width="1"/>

Joe T · 10/05/2019 at 14:26

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

    KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 14:49

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

    lear · 10/05/2019 at 15:08

    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.

Fearthebeard · 10/05/2019 at 15:00

Daniels or Mundy or neither for now?

KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 15:10

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

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 16:15

    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.

      KSinny · 10/05/2019 at 16:29

      Didn't realise that thanks mate, I'll Definatly consider that

    Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 16:26

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

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 16:40

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 17:20

    Fyfe better than merret for me.

    Sharkmove_King · 10/05/2019 at 18:03

    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

G.C. · 10/05/2019 at 15:32

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 · 10/05/2019 at 17:15

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 17:25

    Id say cows at their limit over having bench coverage.

RealDealNeale · 10/05/2019 at 15:48

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).


    Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:25

    Whens mcrae coming in?

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 17:38

    I'd get Bont or Macrae now, wait on Lloyd, could lose more money this week.
    Might need to think about moving Brayshaw, Rocky and Crouch on soon too, other lines are pretty strong.

      Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:47

      Rocky or crouch to congoline in a few weeks is looking like a thing

    JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 20:05

    Libba to Bont, you are well covered in the back line.

TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 15:57

Trade gibbons or scrimshaw to answerth?

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 16:31

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

    Sharkmove_King · 10/05/2019 at 17:58

    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

Shake_n_bake · 10/05/2019 at 16:16

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

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 16:27

    Gawn into Fyfe via Scott.

      Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 16:37

      Same here Lazza, Gawny averages 126 against the Gold Coast…I like that!

        Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 17:21

        Who are you playing this week Russty?
        I got Shake n Bake in the JR Mega League … and I've just given him my capt options … the sneaky bugger..
        Playing Derek in Jock Straps..
        I'm in a couple of other JR comps but I don't know who they are in this forum ..

          Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 17:33

          Got Shinboners in the JR Megaleague, Dion, Martini Police in Magnificent 7 and Moustachio in Trig's Happy place, some pretty good opposition there, the other teams , not sure if I know them or not.
          Good luck this week mate, Shake is hard to beat, ranked very well.

            hedski · 10/05/2019 at 18:36

            We do battle again Russty (Mag7)
            Good luck mate.

              Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:49

              Same to you much money will it take for you to throw the match?…LOL

              JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 19:52

              Looks like I'm up against you in the JR Mega-League, hedski and I have Neil in the Elite of the Elite.

            Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 18:48

            Well there's no wonder Shake is up there … he knows our Capt moves every week…. 🙂
            He's going really well … be a shame to knock him off this week 🙂

            If ya listening Shake, good luck mate..

          Shake_n_bake · 10/05/2019 at 19:09

          Haha believe me Lazza you have nothing to worry about.

    Mick · 10/05/2019 at 16:33

    Grundy into Boak

    Shake_n_bake · 10/05/2019 at 16:38

    Is Lloyd as sneaky vc option?

      Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 17:23

      Go Lloyd, Shake, go Lloyd . 🙂

    TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 16:43

    Currently looking at Macrae, Gawn and Fyfe. Who gets what i havent decided yet!

    JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 16:52

    Cripps VC, then if he doesn't score 125 or over will put the C on Gawn.

    Saritz · 10/05/2019 at 18:57

    Grundy into Gawn

    silversovereign · 10/05/2019 at 19:34

    Gawn into Fyfe for me too.

Dan · 10/05/2019 at 16:44

Still trying to make up my mind between:

Petrucelli -> Daniel
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.

Dash · 10/05/2019 at 17:02

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

    Sharkmove_King · 10/05/2019 at 17:55

    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

Stupid Coach · 10/05/2019 at 17:25

Butters to Answerth and Collins to Ryan or Stewart


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

Lekdog · 10/05/2019 at 17:35

God I love you Kev

Shake_n_bake · 10/05/2019 at 17:35

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

    Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 17:39

    I brought in selwood a few weeks back…. feeling the pain i knew would come

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 17:49

    Could be …could also be Constable if Selwood's still sore…if at all.

BradleyTC99 · 10/05/2019 at 17:48

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?

    JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 20:02

    Either Fyfe or Boak will be good upgrades for your team, they should both get to their BE, so go with what works best.

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 21:04

    I hanging on to one trade BTC to cover Danger ..

Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 17:57

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

Danny · 10/05/2019 at 17:59

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_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:15

    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.

      Danny · 10/05/2019 at 19:10

      thank you
      is libba too neale bont or fyfe best?

        Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 19:23

        Depends on you round 13 bye and how many guys you have out but you'll ideally want all 3, maybe Fyfe 1st then Bont.

FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 18:02

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_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:06

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 18:08

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

        Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:12

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

          FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 18:25

          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_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:34

            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 · 10/05/2019 at 18:56

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

TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 18:24

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

    FearTheBeard · 10/05/2019 at 18:25

    Gone 3 myself.

Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:25

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 · 10/05/2019 at 18:30

    Just made it so Bolton is cover

    TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 18:31

    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_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:42

      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 · 10/05/2019 at 18:45

    smarty pants 🙂

    Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 19:45

    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.

Newbie · 10/05/2019 at 18:31

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 · 10/05/2019 at 18:39

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

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 18:44

    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_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:54

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

BigAl_15 · 10/05/2019 at 18:32

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

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 18:32

    Yes. 🙂

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 18:37

    Actually I think you have them listed in reverse order of priority.

      BigAl_15 · 10/05/2019 at 18:42

      Ok, I’ll stew it over tonight…

        Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 18:55

        Fyfe or Bont. Both look fairly essential.

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:55

    If you posted your entire team, it'd be easier to answer Big AL…and where you need to strengthen the most.

      Brn · 10/05/2019 at 19:46

      Agree with Rusty. Fyfe and Bont are guns but if you are playing someone like petrol or parker on field then Boak is best for now. Lots of other mid prems to drop at some point

Justin · 10/05/2019 at 18:35

Anyone know what is happening with Mumford?

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:50

    He's out injured Justin..Dawson Simpson came in to cover for him.

      Justin · 10/05/2019 at 18:57

      Cheers russty, any idea how serious?

        Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 19:05

        The Giants website has him down as a minor knee complaint Justin…keep an eye out though to see if it's more than a week.
        He was a bit sore apparently.

          Justin · 10/05/2019 at 19:07

          Thanks again!

UpBeat · 10/05/2019 at 18:53

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.
Petrul to Moore to generate moola

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 18:59

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 19:08

      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 · 10/05/2019 at 19:35

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

      UpBeat · 10/05/2019 at 19:46

      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

TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 19:34

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

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 19:48

    Gawn's 3 round average is 18 points higher than Grundy's, Macrae's is 96.3.

    JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 19:53


Alferton · 10/05/2019 at 19:38

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

Brn · 10/05/2019 at 19:40

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..

    Brn · 10/05/2019 at 20:22

    Dam lol was a long shot anyway

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 22:14

    Almost…just needs to get 21 disposals in the next 7 minutes. 🙂

Hoot · 10/05/2019 at 19:46

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.

    Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 19:55

    Ainsworth is 315K and only averaging 55, you'd be better off going for Answerth from Brisbane, he's on the bubble too and is much cheaper.

      Hoot · 10/05/2019 at 20:04

      Nahhh risk the 1st one 😉

        Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 18:21

        Hope you went with Ainsworth over Answerth hehe

          Hoot · 11/05/2019 at 20:40


          I took your advice. Grrrrr. But benched him with an E. 😁

          Fielded Wilkie instead after Answers pathetic 40odd.

    UpBeat · 10/05/2019 at 19:55

    Agree Hoot, I had a ripper of a cork in U/15's, it lasted about 4 weeks and then still couldn't kick properly for weeks.

    Those trades look good.

      Hoot · 10/05/2019 at 20:07

      Highly considering… plus leaves me over 150k
      Get Lachie post bye at 500ish

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 19:18

    What a hoot… trading out a top 3 DEF … madnesss

Harro · 10/05/2019 at 19:46

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 · 10/05/2019 at 20:07

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

Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 19:59

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

Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 20:17

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

    Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 20:25

    Maybe its the hoff calling me

    What_Bear · 10/05/2019 at 23:11

    I am thinking of the same trades. GC players will be handy in the byes. Trust your gut. If one poor week can set up the next 3, then go for it

Brn · 10/05/2019 at 20:25

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

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 20:50

    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 · 10/05/2019 at 20:53

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

        Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 20:57

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

          TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 21:12

          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 · 10/05/2019 at 20:59

        He's had 5 tackles I think

Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 20:49

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 · 10/05/2019 at 21:01

    The mind boggles Holty

      Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 21:15

      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 · 10/05/2019 at 23:11

        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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:19

    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_ · 11/05/2019 at 18:17

      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.

Brn · 10/05/2019 at 20:49

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

    dontblushbaby · 10/05/2019 at 20:59

    Most have them Brn ,so there killing us all

    Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 21:02

    Keep calm. Lloyd is the ultimate seagull. He'll ton up. Heeney will snag another couple of goals and still post a score.

dontblushbaby · 10/05/2019 at 21:01

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

    Rick Grimes · 10/05/2019 at 21:06

    He'll be tagged out of it.

    Lazza · 10/05/2019 at 21:09

    I’d be surprised if they don’t switch the tag to Merrett.. though he did have ‘cover’ in the 2nd qtr but gave away 3 free kicks

    One Touch Wonder · 10/05/2019 at 21:53

    Had the VC on Zac

Russty_ · 10/05/2019 at 22:08

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 Village of the Damned looking mo-fo

    TOPHAWK1 · 11/05/2019 at 12:19

    Heeney the village idiot this morning. Absolute waste of space. 🤡👹

WTFoxtrot_58 · 10/05/2019 at 22:23

Apolgies but FU Heeny and Horse…

Swans2012 · 10/05/2019 at 22:29

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

    Gainsy · 10/05/2019 at 22:31

    Heeney heading to 450k with that. Will be a good pickup at that price.

      Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 22:41

      i won’t be touching him until Horse rests him. Until then, not sure how relevant he will be.

        JohnDJ59 · 10/05/2019 at 22:45

        I don't feel bad about trading Heeney out in round 3, after the last three games by him.

          Holty01 · 10/05/2019 at 22:53

          Same John. Looked injured and traded him out same time. Was worried after his rd3 and rd4 scores but can see there is still something not right.

TommyC99 · 10/05/2019 at 22:29

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

    Beezneez · 11/05/2019 at 10:01

    Saw a post that he has an ankle problem.

gator59 · 10/05/2019 at 22:30

Rage trade Heeney

    TOPHAWK1 · 11/05/2019 at 08:35

    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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:02

      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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:07

    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_ · 11/05/2019 at 18:14

      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 · 11/05/2019 at 12:05

    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.

Stupid Coach · 11/05/2019 at 04:27

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 · 11/05/2019 at 08:22

    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 · 11/05/2019 at 08:29

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

Dash · 11/05/2019 at 08:31

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)

Great fact hunt · 11/05/2019 at 08:38

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.

    GroundBreaker · 11/05/2019 at 11:11

    Think outside the square.

    Trades · 12/05/2019 at 21:02

    Hately hopefully

TOPHAWK1 · 11/05/2019 at 09:05

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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:05

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

      Browncow · 11/05/2019 at 11:28

      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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:10

    It will be green, damp and cold

Brad · 11/05/2019 at 09:29

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

    Pranav · 11/05/2019 at 09:30

    constable and clark

Pranav · 11/05/2019 at 09:31

who is a better on field option parker or answerth?

Phil · 11/05/2019 at 09:34

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

Mark Fawcett · 11/05/2019 at 09:51

Double downgrade this week of Liberatore & Scrimshaw &gt; 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 · 11/05/2019 at 11:08

    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

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 10:01

Libba rah on Neale today??!!

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 10:01


TelescopicCox · 11/05/2019 at 10:44

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)

Sharkmove_King · 11/05/2019 at 10:46

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!!!

Connor · 11/05/2019 at 11:45

Trade Scrimshaw or Wilkie for Answerth?

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 12:48

    Scrimshaw.. Wilkie has some $$ to naje

hedski · 11/05/2019 at 12:35

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

Trev · 11/05/2019 at 12:43

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

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 13:49

    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.

      Derek · 11/05/2019 at 13:49

      Rested last quarter I meant

TBone_9 · 11/05/2019 at 13:24

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 🙂

    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 13:45

    Good luck TBone, yeah also hoping Westhoff continues his upward trend, Heeney's already derailed my good prediction, hopefully a few others can make up for his spuddy performance.

      TBone_9 · 11/05/2019 at 14:21

      Cheers Russty. I’m worried about Heeney but as so many other coaches have him, dealing with him isn’t the highest priority. Who’d you bring in this week mate?

        Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 14:25

        Bont and Answerth mate, not bad starts from both, Libba went out..he's been butchering the hell out of it, hence 15 points from 10 disposals.

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 13:45

    He is the best of the DPP’s to give ruck cover once ROB has been culled.

      TBone_9 · 11/05/2019 at 14:22

      Yep, once ROB turns into a fwd premo that swing will become priceless. Did you take the plunge on him too Derek?

        Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 18:00

        That's crazy Neil, don't think dumping Grundy would ever be a good idea.

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 17:58

    Melb kicking is still very poor

    How bad is Garlett. Dropped 3 easy overhead marks

      Derek · 11/05/2019 at 18:35

      im Liking Lockhart

Catdog · 11/05/2019 at 13:58

hey anyone have a link to carl v coll? cheers

Derek · 11/05/2019 at 14:20

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.

    Fearthebeard · 11/05/2019 at 14:30

    I went Daniels
    Over Dunkley and I am feeling the rage brew already

      Derek · 11/05/2019 at 15:01

      Daniels 7 touches in first half, clearly has a problem with Suckling and JJ in teamI

        Pranav · 11/05/2019 at 16:40

        trading him in this week may have been a bad move

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 16:30

    I had to go and do the lawns

    Came back to see Dunkley 140. Neale and Macrae not far behind

    AuroraBorealis?! · 12/05/2019 at 14:57

    Derek did you intentionally forgo the Grundy VC in favour of Oliver as captain? Balls of steel mate

      Derek · 12/05/2019 at 20:34

      Yes mate.

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 14:37

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

    Fearthebeard · 11/05/2019 at 14:42

    If your skinny at back take Hurn

    JohnDJ59 · 11/05/2019 at 17:37


    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 17:58

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

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 19:45

    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.

gator59 · 11/05/2019 at 15:21

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

Davo · 11/05/2019 at 15:24

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

    No idea · 11/05/2019 at 16:27

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

The Bont · 11/05/2019 at 16:30

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

    Ja191 · 11/05/2019 at 16:32

    I’d go Fyfe and Clarke and atkins

      Maverick_ · 11/05/2019 at 16:35

      agree ^^

Maverick_ · 11/05/2019 at 16:34

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

Jack · 11/05/2019 at 16:44

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

    Pranav · 11/05/2019 at 16:47

    i like williams without whitfield

    JohnDJ59 · 11/05/2019 at 17:34

    114 is to low, needed to be at least 120

Joel · 11/05/2019 at 17:07

lock in setterfields 67 or play ross?

    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 17:29

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

Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 17:38

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

    Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 17:48

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

      Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 17:57

      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 · 11/05/2019 at 18:03

        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_ · 11/05/2019 at 18:08

          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 · 11/05/2019 at 18:42

          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 · 11/05/2019 at 19:17

    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_ · 11/05/2019 at 19:25

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

        Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 20:23

        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 ..

TelescopicCox · 11/05/2019 at 18:13

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

    Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 19:12

    I’ll happily take a 59.

      TelescopicCox · 11/05/2019 at 19:17

      Went the early crow. 59 is a good return

        Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 19:23

        Don’t worry. I was thinking the same.👍

Fearthebeard · 11/05/2019 at 18:46

Daniel over Dunkley looks great 😑

    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 19:45

    Know the feeling…thought you were choosing between Daniel, Mundy and heeney mate?

      Fearthebeard · 11/05/2019 at 21:03

      Lol missed the other page. Wrote or even Dunkley? Hahahahaha. Fml

gator59 · 11/05/2019 at 18:54

Brayshaw is feckin useless

gator59 · 11/05/2019 at 18:57

Old red nuts has gone gang busters

    Swans2012 · 11/05/2019 at 19:04

    Yep there goes my hope of a cheap brayshaw to Oliver next week….

      Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 19:34

      Brayshaw will be cheap, that's for sure.

    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 19:09

    He'll be one of the few shining lights in my side this week Gator, at least he's shown he's still got it.
    OMG, what a finish!!!…well done Dees and T-Mac just got a boot on it in time 🙂
    Really bad luck for the Suns.
    Literally one second to go on the clock,

      Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 19:14

      And about 5 unpaid free kicks in the last few minutes… Suns were very stiff..

dontblushbaby · 11/05/2019 at 19:02

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

    Swans2012 · 11/05/2019 at 19:04

    I’m playing him in agraders damit!

      hedski · 11/05/2019 at 19:24

      I play him as well this week Swans, thought I was looking good ( went Grundy, thought he went Gawn) until I checked after the match.

    Russty_ · 11/05/2019 at 19:04

    Probably cause he was doing his lawns dbb…haha, well done Derek either way.

      dontblushbaby · 11/05/2019 at 19:15

      He might have fell asleep behind the couch ? Wake up Derek , all is good ,you can come out now, Ha

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 19:15

    Ya kidding Derek … tell me it was a mistake … ya ballsy basterd

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 19:17

    Cheers. Massive second half.

Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 19:11

And just like that Oliver becomes extremely sc relevant again.

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 19:13

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

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 19:14

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

    Makes up a bit from Danger C last week

    Ja191 · 11/05/2019 at 19:16

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

      Brn · 11/05/2019 at 19:30

      Great bloody work Derek, and testestical fortitude.. wow

    Shake_n_bake · 11/05/2019 at 21:09

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

TBone_9 · 11/05/2019 at 19:17

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

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 20:18

    Yeh, NDD .. lots of excitement to win… but gee their footy is a long way off where it was at the end of 2018 … I bet they can’t wait for Hannah and Lever to come back …

hedski · 11/05/2019 at 19:19

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

    Brn · 11/05/2019 at 19:29

    Wow. Nice work there

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 20:07

The Hoff …. zero at qtr time !!!!!

hedski · 11/05/2019 at 20:14

Fielding Parker over Petrol not working out well…

    hedski · 11/05/2019 at 21:44

    Hmmm. Maybe Parker over Hoff was the go.

      silversovereign · 11/05/2019 at 22:45

      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.

Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 20:35

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 · 11/05/2019 at 20:36

    Ditto Holty

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 20:50

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

    hedski · 11/05/2019 at 20:52

    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.

      Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 21:05

      Yeah I made that trade to and happy. However, I also traded Dunkley to Boak Rd4. Been happy with that trade up until today.😩

        hedski · 11/05/2019 at 21:45

        I held Dunks from the start luckily

          Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 22:36

          Well done mate. 👍

    Maverick_ · 11/05/2019 at 22:39

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

    silversovereign · 11/05/2019 at 23:01

    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 · 11/05/2019 at 23:07

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

        Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 11:27

        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.

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 20:38

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 · 11/05/2019 at 21:34

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

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 20:51

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

    hedski · 11/05/2019 at 21:00

    Yep. Butters to Hoff for me Laz, still think he'll be good for my structure, hopefully can push him to f7.
    Culled Darling after his 9 so happy there.

      Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 21:10

      Boak way below par too ..

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 21:57

    On 24 with 13 mins to go… will be very cheap next week, and the week after … if you dare

    Pman · 12/05/2019 at 13:04

    The best move I've made so far this year was dumping The Hoff 3 weeks ago….

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 21:19

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

    hedski · 11/05/2019 at 21:46

    Ahh the memories from last year.

      Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 22:01

      He’s doing great from the dressing room … +7 since he left the ground …

    NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 22:43

    Was it serious?

Fisherdann · 11/05/2019 at 21:20

Field Atkins or Ross?

    Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 21:22


    hedski · 11/05/2019 at 21:46


Holty01 · 11/05/2019 at 21:21

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

    dontblushbaby · 11/05/2019 at 21:31

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

Rocksta_ · 11/05/2019 at 22:10

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

Lazza · 11/05/2019 at 22:18

Parker gets 26 and still makes $$s

Derek · 11/05/2019 at 22:28

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.

Maverick_ · 11/05/2019 at 22:30

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 · 11/05/2019 at 23:05

    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

TommyC99 · 11/05/2019 at 23:10

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).

    Derek · 11/05/2019 at 23:37

    I hope you are wrong about Danger. If he misses, I Get Parker as my E score.

      Lazza · 12/05/2019 at 00:10

      Same as last week 😂

Gav · 12/05/2019 at 08:11

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

    dontblushbaby · 12/05/2019 at 08:31

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

COREYSC · 12/05/2019 at 08:34

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!

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 08:39

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

    Booooom Time · 12/05/2019 at 09:58

    😩 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 · 12/05/2019 at 10:14

      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.

        Derek · 12/05/2019 at 11:00

        As long as the hawks beat GWS

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 10:09

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

      Derek · 12/05/2019 at 10:58

      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 · 12/05/2019 at 11:27

        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

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 10:56

    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.

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 11:29

      Cheers Holty. How bad was the corkie to Crouch? You reckon he will miss next week?

    Derek · 12/05/2019 at 11:06

    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_ · 12/05/2019 at 12:33

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

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:52


        Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 13:00

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

        TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 13:01

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

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 12:59

      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_ · 12/05/2019 at 13:14

        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 · 12/05/2019 at 17:49

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:04

    Got me by 3 in triggs toppa! Bloody mundy…grrrr<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👍" src=""&gt;

Trades · 12/05/2019 at 08:44

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

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 11:01

    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

Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 11:47

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

    Ja191 · 12/05/2019 at 11:54


    Cpt Pugwash · 12/05/2019 at 11:57

    menegola Late out!

    hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:07

    Ouch, bad luck there Gainsy.

      Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 16:25

      Still winning my cash league by 300 odd so no big issue.

Beezneez · 12/05/2019 at 12:01

Selwood in for Menegola

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 12:31

    And Constable in for Selwood lol

      Beezneez · 12/05/2019 at 12:48

      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.

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 12:06

Danger is a starter.

hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:10

Selwood now out!!!!
Constable in!

    Trades · 12/05/2019 at 12:11

    Wth is going on at the cattery?!!

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 12:13

    Where is that info from Hedski?

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:16

      I just received a notification from the AFL app, it isn't in any articles on there yet though.

        Beezneez · 12/05/2019 at 12:50

        Is now on

    Shake_n_bake · 12/05/2019 at 12:15

    No managola out

      Shake_n_bake · 12/05/2019 at 12:17

      Selwood in

        Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 12:18

        Selwood back in?

          hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:27

          No he is out, Constable is in.

            hedski · 12/05/2019 at 15:14


RoyWetard · 12/05/2019 at 12:14

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.

Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 12:17

Reliable lineup source?

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 12:24

    They need to lock it in 1/2 hour before kickoff

Ja191 · 12/05/2019 at 12:25

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

The unsullied · 12/05/2019 at 12:28

Is constable definitely in?

hedski · 12/05/2019 at 12:28

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 · 12/05/2019 at 12:33

    Yep ur right

    Beezneez · 12/05/2019 at 12:43

    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.

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 12:36

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. 🤔

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 12:43

    If he matches his score from last week, that'll just top my week right off! 🙂

      COREYSC · 12/05/2019 at 12:51

      Like I’ve Said all week Rusty😉 Dangerfield is unbreakable

    Trades · 12/05/2019 at 12:51

    Yeah I want to do a last minute trade to Josh Kelly

    silversovereign · 12/05/2019 at 12:54

    F|£}%\’ck me. Traded In menegola this week!

      Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 16:24

      I did the same.

        Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 16:25

        He will be expensive swingman now if he can come back before im done upgrading elsewhere on the park

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 13:02

    ….Selwood out…..Selwood in….Selwood out….
    You do the hokey pokey and you shake it all about….

      Beezneez · 12/05/2019 at 13:06


Dontblushbaby · 12/05/2019 at 12:53

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

UpBeat · 12/05/2019 at 12:56

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 13:01

    Why not?…what could possibly go wrong?…;)

      UpBeat · 12/05/2019 at 13:04

      I know right? go cats

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 13:06

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

Pman · 12/05/2019 at 13:11

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_ · 12/05/2019 at 13:18

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 13:56

      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… this come back and bite me on the bum!

        JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 14:14

        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.

JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 13:37

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.

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 14:51

    I might have to rethink Clark, looks like he could get an OK score.

      Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 15:14

      63 at 3QT John your a hard man to please haha

        JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 15:52

        Yes I am, but before the game, those two seemed to be the ones about to hit the wall, I might go Atkins and Parker now.

Derek · 12/05/2019 at 13:57

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

Is Atkins injured?

    Lazza · 12/05/2019 at 14:10

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

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 14:13

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

        Derek · 12/05/2019 at 14:17

        Watch Constable get 100.

          Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 14:21

          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.

hedski · 12/05/2019 at 14:23

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 14:48

    Atkins back on now Hed, Stewart out of the game for me…yipee!

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 15:16

      It's all happening, Stewart's back 👍

        Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 15:18

        regretting trading constable over atkins last week.
        Atkins will be a must trade with a 14 in his 3 rounds

        Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 15:21

        And neither of them scored shit since lol

George · 12/05/2019 at 14:25

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

Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 15:10

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

    hedski · 12/05/2019 at 15:16

    Agreed Mav.

AuroraBorealis?! · 12/05/2019 at 15:33

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

    Gainsy · 12/05/2019 at 16:22

    Still made coin.

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:31

    He cops a price rise AB but Larkey could be an option if there's no others.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 12/05/2019 at 16:45

      His BE is gonna skyrocket though, might have to just cop the losses if no ones available

        Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:51

        Still be better than Parker. That Tatooed spud should be dropped.

BoltonsBlues · 12/05/2019 at 15:54

We are not worthy, all praise T Kelly you superstar

    hedski · 12/05/2019 at 16:38

    My work cash league opponent had him captain!!!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:40

      Come on Hedski, you don't work, you just sit on the couch drinking beers in your Labrador onesy…;)

        hedski · 12/05/2019 at 16:50

        I wish!

Connor · 12/05/2019 at 15:59

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

TBone_9 · 12/05/2019 at 16:00

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!

Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:05

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:33

    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.

JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 16:21

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_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:32

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 16:53

      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 · 12/05/2019 at 16:40

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

      JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 16:59

      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.

        hedski · 12/05/2019 at 17:22

        I'm trying to do the opposite John, 4 or 5 trades less used than usual.
        Ballsy move, did you go Boak for Danger?

          JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 17:24


            hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:05

            Looking good

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:01

    Well done Neil, you're looking at a huge score for this round.

Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:38

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.

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 16:53

    Need him to get going! Need as much as possible from him ffs in a tight one

Steeeve · 12/05/2019 at 16:42

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

    TBone_9 · 12/05/2019 at 16:48

    I believe Stocker will be on the bubble. I might be forced to look at him myself

    NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 22:42

    Maybe Hately

Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 16:49

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

Derek · 12/05/2019 at 17:18

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

    redherringfc · 12/05/2019 at 17:20

    Possible concussion.

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 17:21

    Gone for the day.

      Derek · 12/05/2019 at 17:55

      60 from 44% TOG was going good

        Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 17:58

        Bloody Hawthorn ruined my tips .

          hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:06

          Same, missed Sydney as well.
          Need Dockers to get up.

            Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:09

            I picked Swans, spuds had to win a game sometime.

        JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:08

        A very good score for time on the ground, it was between him and Duursma for my D6 spot, I have Hore at D5, so not much difference in the end.

TommyC99 · 12/05/2019 at 17:41

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_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:15

    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.

Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 17:49

Fyfe I love you …that is all. 🙂

    Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:04

    Traded libba to Fyfe ✅
    But the rest of my 22 has fallen to pieces! I’ll b lucky to crack 2000. You will beat me in the JR mega league after Cameron’s performance russty

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:13

      Are you Shinboners Mav?…didn't realise, sorry mate but Ross needs another 90 points for you bud.

        NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 18:56

        My team name is Shinboners 🙂

        Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:59

        yeah that's me russty.. a bad bad week i shoulda taken setters 67..
        ahh well it's all a game of risks and unfortunately it hasn't come off this week

          Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 19:43

          So you and NoLanguage are both names Shinboners?..that's confusing haha

    TommyC99 · 12/05/2019 at 18:19

    only 2pts so far this quarter. You jinxed him Russty!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:21

      You just un-jinxed him Tommy 🙂

Ja191 · 12/05/2019 at 17:51

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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:16

    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.

NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 17:53

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 17:59

    105…not bad.

    JEL · 12/05/2019 at 18:01

    Give it 1/2 hr, it takes a while for the scaling to settle down.
    Only 3050 points allocated at full time.

      NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 18:56

      Yeah I'll take a 105

hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:11

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 · 12/05/2019 at 18:13

    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

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:34

      2100+ looking good I think Sammy.

    Maverick_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:16

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 18:39

      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_ · 12/05/2019 at 19:44

        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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:20

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

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:39

      Still think you will cover me mate.

    JEL · 12/05/2019 at 18:21

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

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:40

      2050ish maybe JEL?

    BoltonsBlues · 12/05/2019 at 18:23

    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

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:41

      Tight BB.

    Derek · 12/05/2019 at 18:30

    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.

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:42

      Great score Derek, I knew you had me covered when I seen Clarrys score.

      Derek · 12/05/2019 at 19:19

      Playing One Touch Wonder in The Bounty Hunters. He needs Mundy and Fyfe to get 239 to beat me.

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:31

    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.

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:44

      Will be close JD.

    The Ranger · 12/05/2019 at 18:32

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

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 18:38

      Hell of a week Ranger!…I'll take whatever I can get this week.

      hedski · 12/05/2019 at 18:44

      Bastard of a round Ranger.

    silversovereign · 12/05/2019 at 18:37

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

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 18:47

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 19:29

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 19:32

    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.

Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 18:31

Is Ross farking injured?

    TommyC99 · 12/05/2019 at 18:37

    Ankle, spent basically the entire quarter on the bench and had a pretty bad limp walking to the rooms at half time. Not liking his chances of getting back

      Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 18:39

      Thanks Tommy.

      Ffs cmon Ross needle it up son!

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 18:37

    On that note? Will he be back? Is it bad? In a head to head. Was down 16 with stack and Ross vs Baker.

    Cmon Ross and stack 😑

      JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:39

      Done for the day.

        Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 18:40

        Is that confirmed John?

          JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:53

          Triple M.

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:37


Ken · 12/05/2019 at 18:49

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

Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 18:51

Can anyone tell me what ross ended up finishing on?

Also stack and baker scores?

    JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 18:58

    Ross ended up on 13.

    The Bont · 12/05/2019 at 18:58

    10 mins into Q3
    Ross injured on 14
    Stank on 25
    Baker on 46

      Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 19:04

      Man the afl ap sucks bad stack 10 up on baker. If al Ross got is 14 I need stack to win by more then 3 on current scores lol

        silversovereign · 12/05/2019 at 19:19

        Download Footyinfo app mate

          Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 19:22

          Thanks silver doing now! Lefend

            Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 19:25

            Ah man gotta laugh.
            Got Bolton on the bench too lol. He’s on 95?

            Well stack and baker Locked up according to that ap. I need stack to outscore baker by at least 3 lol! Cmonnnn stack you beauty! Don’t shaft me with a Sunday like this.

JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 19:08

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 · 12/05/2019 at 19:12

    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.

      JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 19:23

      Both Stack and Baker on 56 at the moment.

Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 19:19

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.

    JugHead · 12/05/2019 at 19:22

    Stack and baker both on 56 at 33min of 3rd quarter

      JugHead · 12/05/2019 at 19:24

      BALTA ahead of both of them on 58 at 3QT

        dontblushbaby · 12/05/2019 at 19:43

        Menadue & Balta having big games with Ross and Nank going down , Tigers by 44 atm at 15 minute mark

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:00

Bloody Fyfe. Keep ur elbows down.

    Derek · 12/05/2019 at 20:18

    Any concerns?

      gator59 · 12/05/2019 at 20:27

      Abblett gets off and so should Fyfe

      Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:28

      It didn’t look good but the opponent played on.

Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:03

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……

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:05

    Is footy info ap spot on? How can dt have stack 30+
    Over baker and sc -2?

      silversovereign · 12/05/2019 at 20:07

      Totally different scoring for dt. It’s all about possessions in dt not efficiency

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:11

    Add salt in the wound. Bolton on bench while my “premium addition Daniels is done by 50”

      Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:13

      The hits keep on rolling. Second highest in the competition league. 2211 and down by 3 😑🤬

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:38

    Down by 2 now…. cmon give Ross sympathy lol

Kewbie Bear · 12/05/2019 at 20:05

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

    Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:07

    How can he earn 0 for an efficient disposal?

      Ja191 · 12/05/2019 at 20:08

      I think he did but people got scaled down cuz too many points in the game

    Kewbie Bear · 12/05/2019 at 20:08

    Ah K. Hurts all the same.

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:14

    Scaling's a bugger sometimes, they evenly distribute points at the end or take em away for nothing.

Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:11

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:27

    Not sure yet mate, this week's done my head in, need a few days break…hopefully no one.

redherringfc · 12/05/2019 at 20:11

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:12

    Bloody hell mate, doesn't get much tighter than that!

    redherringfc · 12/05/2019 at 20:28

    yep, it did. I got knocked back by 1 point.

    2 draws and a loss by 2.

Rocksta_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:12

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_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:42

    Good score Rocksta….solid for this week.

      Rocksta_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:10

      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.

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:14

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:19

    Congrats Big Neil!…not a bad effort yourself there Mr Holt with 2306.

      Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:21

      Thanks mate. Hopefully hold ground in the ranks.

    Derek · 12/05/2019 at 20:22

    That was with MCrouch and Parker on field

    Well done NDD

    You beat me in 2 leagues this week

      Derek · 12/05/2019 at 22:59

      Having Atkins instead of Constable and Scrimshaw only playing half a game, I could have given you a run.

    gator59 · 12/05/2019 at 20:30

    Great score mate .. Just when I need my premos firing they decided to backfire

      Beezneez · 13/05/2019 at 10:37

      Congats on the score NDD. I'm playing you in guns this week. Your score doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Lazza · 12/05/2019 at 23:01

    Hear hear … well done Neil …

    The Ranger · 13/05/2019 at 12:15

    Great score Neil, well done mate.

Rob · 12/05/2019 at 20:15

2363 prior to final scaling

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:16

    Great score Rob

    Ja191 · 12/05/2019 at 20:17

    Huge mate well done

    Rob · 12/05/2019 at 20:44

    yes i did

    Had Oliver, Kelly, Dunkley, Grundy and Fyfe Captain

Finnius · 12/05/2019 at 20:17

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…

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:30

    Good score Fin.👍

    Sam_01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:32

    Impressive mate 2170 for me haven’t been overly impressed with my team on any given week just keeps on hitting around that 2200 mark, hopefully will move inside the top 1000 this week currently sitting just outside

    silversovereign · 12/05/2019 at 20:37

    2231 for me fin. That’s a nice warchest. Should help your push up the leaderboard.

    redherringfc · 12/05/2019 at 20:48

    Great score and position to be in with so many $$ in the bank.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:10

    Hi Finnius. Superb score with $550K in the sky rocket. Two upgrades for you. Wow mate. Bet you are glad you dodged the Hoff. He killed me this week. You are in a really good pozzie tonight. Congrats mate.

    Finnius · 12/05/2019 at 21:25

    Thanks everyone. Edit – up to 58th!

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:43

      Beauty Finn, keep it going mate…excellent this year.

TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 20:17

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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:21

    2213 for me this week.

    Would of been handy to have Whitfield.

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 20:45

      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_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:21

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:50

      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_ · 12/05/2019 at 22:18

        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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:23

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:57

      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 · 12/05/2019 at 21:17

        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 · 12/05/2019 at 21:03

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

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:24

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:40

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

        TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:05

        I think so too Derek. You are playing some seriously good SC too this year. Love it.

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 20:53

      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 · 13/05/2019 at 04:43

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

    Danners · 12/05/2019 at 20:35

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

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:53

      Ripper score Danners!

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 20:55

      That score will rocket propel you seriously in the rankings tonight! Cheers mate

        Danners · 12/05/2019 at 21:45

        Thanks lads, just outside top 10k after being around 22k last week. Hope all goes all for you lads

    Pranav · 12/05/2019 at 20:42

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

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:25

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

    Derek · 12/05/2019 at 20:44

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

      TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:30

      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.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:31

    Wow. What a score Neil. Glad I missed you this week. 2358? That is nuts! Great stuff.

    Ned_Starkers · 12/05/2019 at 22:03

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

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 22:12

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

    NoLanguage96 · 12/05/2019 at 22:33

    2196 not too bad considering

    TBone_9 · 12/05/2019 at 22:44

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 23:00

    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 · 13/05/2019 at 07:45

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

JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 20:22

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 · 12/05/2019 at 20:59

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 21:36

      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 · 12/05/2019 at 21:05

    Nice win JD, looking fwd to the next battle.

      JohnDJ59 · 12/05/2019 at 21:30

      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.

Steeeve · 12/05/2019 at 20:33

Scored 2222 bit above par?

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:46

    All the 2's…Bingo Steeeve! 😉

    Richie Benaud · 12/05/2019 at 20:50

    marvellous effort that

      Steeeve · 12/05/2019 at 21:09

      Cheers I was happy considering I had Parker and Matt Crouch

Fearthebeard · 12/05/2019 at 20:36

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

    Sam_01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:40

    Locking in Jkelly this week myself mate, catchya later walsh

    whos jelly?

      Sam_01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:46

      Josh kelly

        dontblushbaby · 12/05/2019 at 20:57

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

          Sam_01 · 12/05/2019 at 20:59

          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 · 12/05/2019 at 22:00

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

            Peter · 13/05/2019 at 07:56

            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 · 13/05/2019 at 15:36

              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+

                Peter · 13/05/2019 at 17:10

                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

Daniel · 12/05/2019 at 20:36

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 20:45

    Could just as easily score 2200-2300 next week Daniel, just a snafu this week.

HarryH76 · 12/05/2019 at 20:54

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

Trades · 12/05/2019 at 20:59

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

dontblushbaby · 12/05/2019 at 21:00

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

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:13

    I'll be fielding Balta before Parker from now on, Parker can go take a long walk of a short Pier.

    DavidC · 12/05/2019 at 21:40

    Soldo will come in if Nank misses.

Top score · 12/05/2019 at 21:05

Guy in league scored 2369, might be top?

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:13

    Nah. Some out flyer will get 2450.

    Steeeve · 12/05/2019 at 22:30

    Bloke beat me with a 2390

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 22:39

      Rough Steeeve, that guy's ranked 43 this week for highest score.

redherringfc · 12/05/2019 at 21:27

There are absolutely no decent downgrade targets this week.

Daz · 12/05/2019 at 21:38

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

    Rocksta_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:40

    Fantastic effort by both you guys. Keep it up. Holty 5th overall is simply amazing.

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 21:52

    Sensational Daz!!! The JR community are going places. Holty is flying! Lets back him in. And you are right on his tail! How good is this!

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:54

    Great stuff Dazza, keep powering on!
    Holty, 5th overall is mega mate, keep up the good work.

      Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 22:15

      Yeah Neil!…great to see community members killing it this year, without having to blow their own Tubas, Holty, Finn and Dazza are smashing it so far.

Derek · 12/05/2019 at 21:55

Holty is 5th overall. Seriously good mate

    Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:59

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 22:07

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

        Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 22:20

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

          Derek · 12/05/2019 at 22:53

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

            Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 23:37

            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 · 12/05/2019 at 23:04

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

            Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 23:16

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

    Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 22:19


    Beezneez · 13/05/2019 at 10:35

    Congrats on the ranking Holty that is huge.

    The Ranger · 13/05/2019 at 12:17

    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.

Russty_ · 12/05/2019 at 21:56

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

    TOPHAWK1 · 12/05/2019 at 22:06

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 22:19

    Cheers bud

Mick foley · 12/05/2019 at 22:07

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!

Holty01 · 12/05/2019 at 22:09

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 · 12/05/2019 at 22:41

    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 · 12/05/2019 at 23:43

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

    Lazza · 12/05/2019 at 23:46

    Good on you Holty… great stuff ..

      Browncow · 13/05/2019 at 00:44

      Nice work Holty – great to see a few community members in the hunt!

        Maverick_ · 13/05/2019 at 01:27

        Great work Holty! Keep on smashing it and who knows what can happen come seasons end

    Swans2012 · 13/05/2019 at 07:32

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

Darcy skepper · 12/05/2019 at 23:44

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 · 12/05/2019 at 23:56

    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 · 13/05/2019 at 00:01

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

        Daz · 13/05/2019 at 14:56

        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 · 13/05/2019 at 15:29

          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 · 13/05/2019 at 10:30

    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.

Fearthebeard · 13/05/2019 at 06:43

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 · 13/05/2019 at 11:28

    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

Fearthebeard · 13/05/2019 at 06:50

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

    Sharkmove_King · 13/05/2019 at 07:39

    Oliver. I don't think Neale is worth 640k

    Bane · 13/05/2019 at 10:50

    Neale if you want consistency or Bont if you feel adventurous

    Derek · 13/05/2019 at 11:20

    do you have Macrae?

    Fearthebeard · 13/05/2019 at 12:31

    Hey Derek!

    Yep I Got Macrae. Fyfe, Cripps, cogs, rocky.

    Not sure who to go for!? Is neale worth 70k more then neale?

Sam_01 · 13/05/2019 at 13:41

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 · 13/05/2019 at 15:26

    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 · 13/05/2019 at 17:08

      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

FearTheBeard · 13/05/2019 at 16:38

Really need some advise guys.

So I've been toying with getting Neale in for weeks. I know J Kelly & Oliver & Bont are a fair bit cheaper. I'm trying to convince myself to pass on Neale though I keep coming back to him as ultra premium mid I don't have (already got Fyfe, Cripps, Macrae).

I have just played round and finally found a way to do it. If I trade out Duurmsa & O'Brien I can bring him in with Ham (Bombers rookie who looks a spud at best so far).

This with my moving around dual position players gives me a squad I am happy to run with for a bit while other cows fatten up.

It would leave me with

Hurn, Laird, Williams, Smith, Moore, Hore (Clark ,Answerth)

Neale, Cripps, Fyfe, Macrae, Cogs, Rocky, Walsh, Constable (Stack, Ross, Atkins)

Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

Boak, Kelly, Daniel, Danger, Marshall, Bolton (Ham, Burgess)

The other trades I was toying with was Atkins & Duurmsa out. Which would allow me to bring in Dunkley into forward line, move Moore up to defender so it would still be Hurn, Laird, Williams, Smith, Moore, Hore. Just means I would have Constable & Stack on field in midfield with Dunkley in forwards with Daniels, Kelly, Danger, Marshall, Boak?

Other options is I could go down from Neale to Oliver, Bont, J Kellly and bank 50-70k for another upgrade sooner then later? Just keep coming back to Neale?
