Round 9 is upon us community and we’ve only got *checks fixture* … 11 more weeks of utter pain and humiliation before SuperCoach finals begin (but I did beat Lek in a head to head on the weekend!). It was another weird week in SuperCoach land with some yuggggge scores from Tim and Josh Kelly, Oliver, Dunks, Macrae, Grundy, and Sloane seeing teams smash out 2,300 with ease. There was also some not so yuuuuuge scores from, well… pretty much everyone in my side.  

Without a standout downgrade option this week you’ve gotta know when to hold and when to fold in this caper, community, and this is a week to hold on downgrades. Having a full team of 29 or 30 players available for the bye weeks is crucial and you can’t be carrying passengers if you want to put up semi-respectable scores during those 3 weeks.

With Lek pulling up sore from the weekend, Patch and Damo managed to defy significant odds and deliver a podcast WITHOUT mentioning Daniel Rich. Barron looks into the lower levels to try and find where our next rookie gem is going to come from in Around the Grounds. He has style! He has flair! He was there! That´s how he became our resident cheat sheet expert (ily Matty… and yes I’ve been watching a lot of daytime TV). And finally, in another week where our VC options are playing early, you’ve gotta nail your choice. Check out Damo’s write up here.   

The News

Hooooo boy, we are panicking!!

Chris Scott is enemy number 1 after DROPPING Charlie Constable after 27 touches and 10 marks last weekend. Come to the Tigers, Charlie. We’ll look after you. Willem Drew is on an extended bench with Joe Atley eyeing off his spot. Gonigliog is out injured and so is Dev Smith. There’s still no sign of Tim English at the Dogs or Bryce Gibbs at the Crows. If Jackson Hately doesn’t make the final cut tonight there isn’t any reliable rookie downgrade options. Arghhhhhh.

**BREAKING NEWS**

There’s some sunshine on the horizon though, community. The rookies are coming in thick and fast. Four confirmed debuts for tonight and Saturday, and a potential for a further 6 more on Sunday (and Joe Atley, who played a handful of games back in 2017 but is rookie priced)

For tonight, the Eagles are sliding in Willie Rioli at the expense of Jake Waterman. Oskar Baker (MID – 123.9k) will debut for the Dees in one of four changes. Jake Melksham and Michael Hibberd are out with injury. 

Dayne Beams is back for the Pies but Jamie Elliot is out injured. Jordan de Goey has been named despite concerns in the week that he would miss. The Saints are debuting Robbie Young (FWD – 117.3k) and Jonathan Marsh (DEF – 163.1k) will play his second game. Another debut at the Lions with young Mitch Hinge (123.9k) getting a shot. Chayce Jones replaces the omitted Riley Knight at Adelaide. No change at the Dogs for their clash against the top of the table Cats; who are (finally) debuting Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k). Joel Selwood also returns. Esava joins Constable as the ones making way. Bae and spiritual D3, Connor Blakely, returns for Freo! Give him a week or two to get up to speed but you definitely want this guy in your backline. Essendon have swung the axe, making 5 changes. Joe Daniher is amongst the ins, but Orazio FANTA-sia (fight me, BT) is out with injury. North have made some changes that won’t really affect you. James Rowbottom (MID – 117.3k) is in for Sydney and is on the bubble.

There are 37 ins and 13 confirmed outs on Sunday… if I went through them all this article would go for weeks. There are potential debuts for:

Peter Ladhams (RUC – 123.9k); Joel Garner (DEF – 123.9k (confirmed); Ben King (FWD – 184.8k); Jez McLennan (DEF – 117.3k); Riley Collier-Dawkins (MID – 121.8k); and Callum Coleman-Jones (RUC/FWD – 123.9k).

Port have recalled Zak Butters for their match up against Gold Coast; who regain Brayden Fiorini in a host of changes (how many players do they on their list…?). The injury curse at Richmond shows no signs of improving with Toby Nankervis and Jack Ross out for a while. Nick Vlastuin and Dan Rioli are among the ins. Hawthorn have added four names but I suspect they’ll go in unchanged. Some, ahem, ‘giant’ ins at the Giants with Mumford and Whitfield back in, also Brett Deledio for some reason (?????). Nic Newman returns for the Blues.

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

It’s a hard week for the Lock, not in sense that being unable to pick some great options but cash gen is hard to come by. If you’re sitting on a few 100k and can turn a Matt Parker into Tim Kelly it’s an absolute no brainer. With 3 scores above 120 in his past 4 games, his price will continue to climb as his 162 against North will sit in his rolling average for another two weeks. 

Scott has kept in the middle in a clear sign of upping his trade value at the end of the year (don’t @ me) so you should 100% be looking at a way to jump on. If you’re not that flush for cash and haven’t gone too crazy with trades yet, jettisoning the injured Isaac Heeney also has some appeal… 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

A North v Sydney fixture looks boring as all hell on the surface (and below the surface, and below the surface surface), but it’s also being labelled as the Matt Rowell Cup. The rights to the Oakleigh Chargers gun that has been labelled “better than Sam Walsh”.

RUC

You can make a legitimate case for all three options tonight. Goldy (12.9k) looks way overpriced for a guy that hasn’t hit three figures yet in 2019, but there is some merit to his selection. After a stingy start, Sydney are allowing an average of 109DS to opposition number 1 rucks over the past 3 weeks. He gave Callum Sinclair a bath in round 17 last year on his way to 125DS. 

Callum Sinclair (11.6k) has returned two games of 90+ after a three-week slump in form. He enjoyed playing against North last year, scoring 105DS and 112DS. Against him is the fact that North have only conceded one Draftstars hundred to an opposition ruck this year in Ben McEvoy.

Sam Reid (FWD / 9.2k) carries far more risk, but North have had their struggles against key forwards this year. Hawkins kicked 4 last week and Mitch Brown kicked 3.3 a few weeks back.

DEF

Somewhat surprisingly considering their respective spots on the ladder, both sides are in the top 5 stingiest teams in giving up points to opposition medium backs (Sydney 14th. North 16th). Do what you will with this information, but tread lightly here folks. North, however, are in the top 4 in conceding points to opposition key defenders. I love watching Allir Allir (8.3k) play and he is a great salary saver on this slate. He also has form against North, scoring 88 and 73 in his two games against them. Callum Mills (MID / 10.5k) isn’t blowing the doors off the place, but he’s been a picture of consistency over the past 6 weeks, scoring between 70-96.

FWD

There’s some awesome value options tonight up forward that are really flirting with me. The first is Nick Blakey (5.6k), who is coming in fresh off a breakout game against Essendon. North average 83DS a game to the oppositions number 1 forward and a tick under 70DS top 2 forwards. The second is Robbie Fox (7.1k), who saw a major bump last week (82DS) without Harry Cunningham in the side. There’s only one other instance of Fox playing without Cunningham, back in 2017 he scored 69 when Cunningham missed in round 3. At the top end, Jack Ziebell (MID / 11.7k) is the only one that jumps out out me. I’ll explain why in the next section.

MID

The penny pinching so far has a point. To suggest both sides are sieves to opposition midfielders is an insult to sieves, who at least put up a modicum of resistance. Sydney have the second easiest midfield to score against, and North have the 5th. Of top 1 midfielders, North are 3rd easiest and Sydney 5th. Over the past 3 weeks, Sydney are conceding 134DS (!!!) to the number one opposition midfielder. My point should be pretty clear, both teams are hopeless so these 4 positions are where a bulk of your coin should go. 

Hope you’ve avoided the carnage this week, community. Good luck!

Go Blues!

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 11:27

Hey Kev! Very enjoyable write up once again!

So been toying with trades this week. Was thinking of going Walsh – Boak/Bont/Merrett. But theres been quite a bit of carnage this week. I'll still field 22 if Crouch and Drew join Ross and Constable as non playing player. So don't need to trade out non playing players to get 22. So here are my options. Would love your thoughts community!

1. Walsh – Boak/Bont/Merrett
2. Ross – Hately and Constable – Boak/Bont/Merrett
3. Ross – Hately and Parker/Pet – Walters
4. Hold trades

    SC_Kev7 · 17/05/2019 at 11:49

    Cheers, Tommy! If Hately is named I like trade 3. No point keeping Ross and if you can hold onto Constable with decent cover he can easily cross 400k (that is, if Scott plays him…). If not Hately, trade 1 – Walsh to, in order, Boak/Merrett/Bont

hedski · 17/05/2019 at 11:28

Full blown panic mode for me now Kev with Crouch joining Gogs on the bench and Drew looking iffy.
All trade plans are out the window as of now.
Great job again, love ya work.

    SC_Kev7 · 17/05/2019 at 11:51

    Tonight will be huge in what trades I make. hedski! I hope we get get Hately but Leon Cameron has been a prick so far so not holding my breath

      Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 13:12

      Tonight’s final teams are huge Kev I Have crouch out drew most likely out and brayshaw stinking it..
      I think brayshaw may actually survive another week!

    TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 12:39

    I feel ya hedski. You gonna hold both boys on the pine?

      hedski · 17/05/2019 at 13:15

      Yeah TBone I'll hold them, might have to upgrade Walsh early to get another premo in the guts, was planning on doubling down if Hately named.

        TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 15:50

        Atkins named out as well now mate, you have him to worry about as well? It looks like I’ll have to trade Cogs now, don’t think I can go into this week fielding Stack, Hayes and Stocker/Hately

          hedski · 17/05/2019 at 16:31

          Just seen that, yeah I have Atkins too.
          Was going to double down Atkins/Parker, might have to hold Parker now, trade Atkins down to Stocker or Hately and Walsh up.
          Aaaarrgghh, doin my head in.
          Just got home from work so I'll have a play around in halfa when Sundays teams are finalised.

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 16:05

    Panic? Panic was for weeks ago Hedski..
    I've moved past that into something resembling a catatonic state now, just kinda numb and a bit trembly.

      hedski · 17/05/2019 at 16:35

      Ha ha, I feel for ya mate, I've dodged most of the carnage up until this week.
      Team has just been scoring shit.

Tommo · 17/05/2019 at 11:50

What to do with Brayshaw? Stuck with both Constable and M. Crouch, so looking like I might have to hold.

    SC_Kev7 · 17/05/2019 at 16:06

    Constable now back in… can’t keep up with this rubbish. Flick Brayshaw, his role is shot

      Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 16:40

      Unfortunately I think I have too hold Angus after Ross Atkins and crouch all out. But If you can move him on I certainly would he’s not playing as an inside mid anymore

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 12:07

AFL.com says Crouch will miss this week. Carnage!!!

COREYSC · 17/05/2019 at 12:11

Which plan is better Community?
A) Drew to Boak if Drew doesn’t play if he does play Parker to Boak
Then Atkins to Hatley if Hatley plays or Stocker If he doesn’t
B) with M.Crouch out that means I have 4 premiums and 1 midpricer plus rookies on field do I upgrade Gibbons to J.Kelly and downgrade Atkins to Hatley/Stocker instead sparing Parker and Drew for another week??

    SC_Kev7 · 17/05/2019 at 16:14

    B

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 16:37

    B

TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 12:20

I dunno if you guys are starting to panic yet, but I have Cogs, M. Crouch and Drew in my midfield all unlikely or not playing. If Drew is dropped I’ll be forced to sideways one of Cogs or Crouch to a premo. So much for all my trade planning from last week haha. I’m thinking Cogs to T.Kelly and hold him in the mids for a few weeks and Drew down to Stocker as I feel the best about his JS of all rooms on the bubble. Is it getting hot in here?? Anyone else feeling the heat?

    JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 13:18

    I am TBone, I have M.Crouch, Cogs, Constable, Drew and Ross, but I have a plan, now that I have stopped panicking. Ross will be upgraded, Drew is now in the fwd line, being covered by Petruccelle, I will move Duursma from defence to the mids, in place of Constable. Both M.Crouch and Cogs will stay on field for now, I have the E on Hayes to cover M.Crouch and I'm hoping Hately gets a game this weekend so I can trade him in to cover for Cogs.

      TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 14:03

      Good god that’s some serious carnage in the mids there DJ! Wouldn’t be too surprised to see Constable in as a late in again for Atkins potentially. I like the plan though mate, if Hately not named you looking at Stocker or Rowbottom? It looks like Parker is gonna survive another week at my F6… may play Balta on field instead

        JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 14:32

        Hi TBone, if Hately isn't named and Stocker is, I will have to go with Stocker, since I need to downgrade Atkins, to be able to upgrade Ross. I have Constable sitting on the bench at the moment, hoping he plays, so I can put him on the field in place of Cogs, depending on if Hately plays or not. I think you need to get T.Kelly in, I've had him since round 3 and have used him in the mids and fwd lines.

          Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 14:40

          Hi John, Constable is playing, Atkins is out injured this week.

            JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 14:57

            Thanks Russty, I just saw it on twitter, via Fantasy Freako, that sure makes things a bit easier.

          TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 15:46

          I see mate. The downgrade money is needed for me as well to try and get a premo defender in next week. Unfortunately with the Atkins news im down to slimmer pickings in the mids so Drew(if dropped) to Stocker/Rowbottom/Hately otherwise Atkins will have to make way for a rook instead of Parker (I’ll take a cruddy playing rookie over injured one any day)

Dash · 17/05/2019 at 12:29

360K.
Would love your two trade ideas this week?
Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, D Moore, Duursma, Collins, (Clark, Answerth)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Setterfield, Hayes, (Atkins, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Balta, Parker (Burgess, Corbett)

    dontblushbaby · 17/05/2019 at 13:03

    Parker for Dunkley ?

      Dash · 17/05/2019 at 14:17

      Do you think Dunkley or T Kelly or even work out a way to get J Kelly in?

        dontblushbaby · 17/05/2019 at 15:23

        Need to start moving on rookies ect who have maxed out as they have and will start losing cash otherwise and you will be caught with too many

Ryan · 17/05/2019 at 12:33

Got a huge decision to make lads so need some help

Got three options

Trade in Tim Kelly for drew even though my rd 13 bye isn’t looking to good

Trade in Rory Sloane for drew though DDP even though Sloane can’t handle a tag that good, especially with Hutchings and de boar plus berry played a role on Sloane and did a good job

Trade in Josh Kelly for Walsh

    Ryan · 17/05/2019 at 12:35

    Berry played a role on him last year and kept him from scoring well*

Loyal · 17/05/2019 at 12:44

It is getting hot indeed! <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/rzN/bg_FFFFFF/txt_dddddd/border_ffffff/flags_0/.jpg&quot; width="1"/>

Ken · 17/05/2019 at 12:55

Who would you take macrae or Kelly?

    gainsy · 17/05/2019 at 13:11

    macrae

    TBone_9 · 17/05/2019 at 14:04

    T. Kelly or J. Kelly?? If T. Then him, if J. then Macrae

      Blue · 17/05/2019 at 14:47

      T

Trades · 17/05/2019 at 13:12

Crouch, Coniglio… Brayshaw you win again…

PocketDog · 17/05/2019 at 13:34

Would love some opinions on trades this week!
1. Drew & Gibbons >> Gaff & Rowbottom
Or
2. Drew & Constable >> Macrae & Hatley (if named)

I really want Macrae but Constable still has some serious cash to make if Chris Scott doesn’t keep snipering him to the two’s!
What do we think?

Steve · 17/05/2019 at 14:08

Constable is named on field, Atkins out

Connor · 17/05/2019 at 14:17

1. Ross & B. Scott >> T. Kelly & Hately (if named) + $104k
OR
2. Ross & Constable/Drew >> T. Kelly & Hately (if named) +$257k

Second part of option 2 obviously depends on who is named / omitted. Could also move Bailey Scott on instead of Ross and have around $100k less after option 2.
Feedback would be great!

Red · 17/05/2019 at 14:46

Any interest in Darling?
I'm thinking of getting him in as a POD for F6
2% of teams, dropped $135K, B.E. -1
Duursma to T. Kelly
M Parker to Darling

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 15:37

    If he had the round 12 bye I’d be more Interested

BradleyTC99 · 17/05/2019 at 15:40

So hoping hately gets named so I can go ross – hately. Which second trade is best?

1. Parker/Pet – Walters
2. Walsh – Merrett/Bont

    Hazey · 17/05/2019 at 17:14

    2

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:22

    Hately must've shagged the Coach's Daughter.

Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 15:44

Teams have dropped and my side resembles a giant turd!
Was going to wait for Sunday teams to finalise but that’s not long till first bounce considering Angus plays tonight!
I have * next to my glaring issues i appreciate all feedback and suggestions 🙂 BANK: 367k TRADES: 21

DEF: hurn sicily Williams Smith Rozee duursma (clark answerth)

MID: Cripps Fyfe treloar Oliver MCrouch* Brayshaw*
Walsh Ross* ( Scott* Atkins* setterfield)

RUCK: Gawn RO’Brien (bines)

FWD: danger Dunkley heeney Cameron Moore drew* (MLewis Burgess)

Got plenty of fllexibilty with 3 Def/fwd swings and 2 mid/def swings.

Brayshaw all week has been a priority too move on but With Ross and Atkins both out Matt hopefully just a week and drew 50/50 brayshaw may take a back seat. Issue is if I hold this week he’s worth peanuts next week and I have to ride it out till he comes good it’s now or never for AB. I think TKelly is a must this week though.

What do the community suggest as trades.

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 16:02

    If hately is named I’ll be going Ross – Hately i think Mav

      Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 16:39

      I think your right tommy but don’t think hately will make the cut. He will relieve the pressure of Ross, Atkins and crouch out of my midfield otherwise stocker might get a call up but not real sure about his scoring power.

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:30

    Ross to Stocker, Drew to T.Kelly Mav, Lewis covers for Moore if out.
    Or Move Rozee fwd and use Moore as a loop in the backline.

G.C. · 17/05/2019 at 16:10

Something I've been thinking about today is Hately. I've seen a lot of coaches here looking to bring him in if named, and it's making me think about the value of initial price rise vs JS in the byes. If Hately is indeed named, his rise this week will be fantastic. On the other hand, GWS have shown a willingness to drop him at any opportunity despite the numbers, which makes him an extremely risky proposition come bye time. More money now versus less security later, with no truly right answers.

For those bringing in Hately, how do feel about your cover during the byes?

    dontblushbaby · 17/05/2019 at 16:22

    Thinking same, if Coniglio comes back next week he could be first to go, but Risk V Reward ?

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 16:41

    If I bring Hately in, I’ll be looking at him as more of a short term investment. His JS is clearly shaky, but with his scoring potential and BE being so good,we only really need him to play another 3 games before his round 14 bye to be a worthy investment. Don’t think he’s too required during the round 12 bye but the round 13 bye we need all the warm bodies we can get

Doc_1 · 17/05/2019 at 16:20

Not sure I should be holding both cogs and MCrouch now both out. Which one to upgrade to a McRae or J.Kelly

Fisherdann · 17/05/2019 at 17:06

Is anyone looking at Rory Lobb? Could be a good F6 option. Bye friendly. Upped his ave by 10 so far. Lowest score 71. With the 3 round ave of 95 and with 45 hitouts and a 128 over the weekend is he about to turn the corner?

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 17:37

    as long as Sandilands and darcy stay away. don't think that will happen. he is going well now as the lone ruck, that will eventually finish

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:06

Hately not named. There goes my trade plans!

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:11

    I was never confident he’d be named with lids on the extended bench too. And I don’t trust stocker for JS and scoring. I’m really stumped now!

      TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:26

      I’m just assuming here by you’d think he’s highly rated seeing as they gave up pick 1 for him? Would like to see him named with simmo in the side tho

JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 17:07

Drew is now officially out.

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:11

    Drew up to TKelly, very happy John!

      JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 17:34

      Good move Maverick.

    UpBeat · 17/05/2019 at 17:17

    Butters ahead of Drew? Lol. The SC gods are crazy

      Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:21

      Drew had a chance to shine last week with Wines out and he only got 11 disposals.

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:11

SEN have reported Darcy Moore is likely to be rested. It gets worse and worse

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:18

    Is this some type of sick joke?
    I’m cooked already I do not need the gods kicking me when I’m down! Haha It’ll be an interesting week of scores I feel

      TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:24

      Yep absolutely sucks. With Drew and Moore both being out, and I already have bines with a 0 so need to create a mid/fwd swing to keep drew in the mids. Either trade Atkins and Ross to stocker and Walters or 1 trade drew – Walters, but I would like to keep drew for the byes (hoping he can get back in)

    Holty01 · 17/05/2019 at 17:22

    Well that sux.😱

    Dan · 17/05/2019 at 20:20

    Oh no! I forgot to put Petruccelle on the field, so now will have a donut if Moore is rested.

    Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 21:10

    Heard it on the telly too.. Ch 7.

G.C. · 17/05/2019 at 17:19

Now it's really panic time! Good think the game tonight is later on, more time to trade!

Would you rather:

A) Parker to Dunkley
B) Drew to Boak

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:23

    I like drew to boak.
    I started Dunkley but still do not trust mr magnets

Derek · 17/05/2019 at 17:24

having MCrouch out at least gives me a limited VC option this week, as my only non-player was going to be Bines but he plays first game.

I can't really risk VC on Grundy as Crows start 25 mins after the Collingwood game, so my VC options are Max, Oliver or a smokie with Hurn.

I went the big C on Oliver last week and was rewarded, but he will probably get a tag. Gawn away from melbourne, how does he fly. he got 156 at optus oval last year.

Guts says Oliver will break the tag and make 20 tackles.

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 17:25

    Drew didn't make the cut. he can be my loop. happy days. Grundy VC

      JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 17:38

      I don't trust emergencies for loopholes Derek, prefer the injured players. or ones just not playing.

        Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 18:46

        Especially drew, been very good, first one in if there’s an issue

Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Balta, Parker (Burgess, Corbett)

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 17:33

    get Tim

      Dash · 17/05/2019 at 17:36

      Tim Kelly for Atkins you think.
      Which other rookie would you chop this week?

Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:25

I don’t trust stockers JS or scoring potential at all but have Atkins & Ross to cull. I wanted one of Joyce, rotham or hately named but not too be, such cruel game

    Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2019 at 17:30

    Oh his JS is fantastic obviously you don’t know the injury situation at Carlton. Jones, Plowman, Williamson, Simpson, Docherty all out

      Tommy · 17/05/2019 at 17:36

      Are you being sarcastic? Jones, plowman and Simpson all listed as 1 week away. Williamson listed as 2 weeks. Stocker could very well be dropped next week…

        Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:46

        Yeah a lot of players on the comeback for Carlton.. stockers scoring is a slow burn not a real high ceiling so he needs to keep playing constantly to make cash?

        Derek his scores aren’t great in the AFL so far but he looks to play very well in the 2s.

      TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:46

      Surely Plowman and Simmo are a worry to Stocker's JS? Both only out short term. Any chance Cunningham could possibly make way first?

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:12

    They paid a high price for Stockers Mav, surely they need to get some games into him?
    Not that I'm picking him up but…

Tyruddanaut · 17/05/2019 at 17:29

One down one up for me (again)

Welcome Rowan Marshall in time to get belted by Grundy ! 😄

    UpBeat · 17/05/2019 at 17:34

    I'm thinking the same but Grundog will chew him up and spit him out. He only scored 50 vs Gawn. His BE is 57 so still tempted.

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 17:36

    Are you bringing stocker in as your downgrade TY?

Brn · 17/05/2019 at 17:33

Dam!!

With crouch and Drew out, i have to play one of setterfield, balta, or corbett on field. No idea who to pick. Plz help

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:38

    Not sure but Balta could get 20 again with Soldo Rucking, one of the other two.

    UpBeat · 17/05/2019 at 17:44

    Setterfield. He went alright vs the Pies.

      Brn · 17/05/2019 at 18:01

      Righto thanks

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:10

    Setterfield would be the safe option.
    I'm going with The Balta.

Brn · 17/05/2019 at 17:35

I heard rowbottom is bad.

Derek · 17/05/2019 at 17:46

if Moore is out, changes my whole trading plan. Instead of Libba to Macrae, it will have to be Libba to boak. oh well.

Johnno · 17/05/2019 at 17:50

If you have Coniglio & crouch who would you trade or would you not trade them?

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 17:58

    Both will probably be back next week so I wouldn't trade, Cogs isn't certain for next week but wait and see I reckon.

    KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 18:03

    Personally I'm trading Cogs but holding crouch

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:08

    Unless you're flush with trades you gotta hold your keepers unless they're out for a long term injury.

    JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 18:12

    I'm holing both, I did enough sideways trades in the first four rounds.

Stupid Coach · 17/05/2019 at 17:51

hink I have managed to plug most of the holes in my team, however, still not sure which way to go with my trades. My obvious trades are Ross to Rowbottom/Stocker and Devon Smith to Tim Kelly as both are out injured long term. Leaves me with 20 trades and 30k in the bank. I would like to upgrade/downgrade Drew but that may need to wait until next week.

Appreciate any other ideas/suggestions Community.

Team is as follows:
B: Whitfield, Laird, Z Williams, Stewart, Duursma, Wilkie, Lockhart, Joyce (St K)
M: Cripps, Oliver, Merrett, Macrae, Coniglio, Constable, Walsh, Stack, Answerth, Scott, Ross
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Heeney, Rozee, D Smith, Settlefield, Petrucelle, Parker, Drew

Chompers · 17/05/2019 at 17:57

Big trouble this week. First cogs and Ross, now Atkins, drew and crouch. And what’s this i hear about Darcy Moore? FML
Looking at doughnuts this week

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:10

    Whats the story with Moore Chompers?

      TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 18:17

      SEN reported Moore could get rested. Quite ironic as i saw a small part from Pendles being interviewed this morning in which he said its disrespectful to rest players in round 9

SamuraiPizzaCat · 17/05/2019 at 17:59

Fyfe is life or J Kelly? Initially I've gone Fyfe but might be better to hold off to Round 13 after his bye?

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 18:36

    have a look at GWS next 5 games… then have a look at their last 4 games (our SC finals), maybe have a look at Kellys % owned. his only worry is the week he missed a couple ago, if that comes back. otherwise he is as lock as they come. I'm starting to think Kelly instead of macrae/boak this week

KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 18:08

Drew to Stocker and $338k in the bank or Drew to Marshall or another forward under 480k and $30k?

    Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 18:45

    Marshall looks good to me…..

Ryan · 17/05/2019 at 18:14

Sloane or Dunkley?

John · 17/05/2019 at 18:14

VC Gawn or Grundy?

    Ja191 · 17/05/2019 at 18:15

    I’m going grundy. Shouldn’t need to worry about a c

iLoveNMFC · 17/05/2019 at 18:16

Moore OUT…

    Ja191 · 17/05/2019 at 18:23

    Source?

      iLoveNMFC · 17/05/2019 at 18:26

      Fantasy Freako Twitter, usually reliable but hopefully wrong on this one

    Tom · 17/05/2019 at 18:23

    proof

    James Sykes · 17/05/2019 at 18:25

    i'm seeing this coming through on twitter but some of the major footy sites are yet to confirm……..herald sun, afl, fox footy…..does anyone have a confirmed source on this?

      Brn · 17/05/2019 at 18:28

      Freako aka champion data will be right

        James Sykes · 17/05/2019 at 18:31

        if freako calling it….its a reliable source to me….confirmed very unfortunately for me…….likely donut.
        Although interesting Collingwood official site still havent called this….nor the AFL.

      TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 19:06

      Mark Stevens mentioned it on twitter, and its been doing the rounds in the news. Hoping for some miracle and its not true but really can't see it being wrong

        Tommy · 17/05/2019 at 19:08

        I can’t remember a time when it was reported on 7news and it was wrong, must be more than just a rumour

          Ja191 · 17/05/2019 at 19:13

          Moore than just a rumour*

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 19:26

    Is this confirmed yet?

    Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 19:47

    SEN mentioned it too. A lot smoke… best to assume its true and structure your side accordingly. Then if he is in it will be a bonus

Joel · 17/05/2019 at 18:16

I need a rookie in for Ross or im copping a donut i can swing duursma or setters into my midfieled.

A) ross too larkey

B) ross too joyce

C) ross to stocker

D) ross to j.atley

Phillip · 17/05/2019 at 18:23

What trades to do?

A )Ross and Moore-Oliver and Billings
B) Ross and Moore-Sloane and Dunkley
C) Ross and Drew-Sloane and Billings

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 18:25

Seen a lot of mixed reviews about Stocker. Ideally i'd like to be able to bring him in. Have a zero so its either bring in Stocker and Walters for Ross and Atkins or punt Drew/Moore – Walters

The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:27

Going early on Connor Blakely would be dumb eh?

    Derek · 17/05/2019 at 18:32

    yep. watch his TOG and his center bounces. they may both be low and build over the next few week.

    Mundy will spend less TOG and Walters will be more forward.

    just wait and see how he goes first

      The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 18:38

      You know what it's like when you have a crap start Derek…you start looking around for some crazy move that might get you ahead of the pack.
      He's tempting me is Connor. I had him in at F3 in the pre-season and ended up with bloody Witherden.
      Four cans of Bob Hawke beers and I'm coming up with all sorts of random trade options…

        KeenButClueless · 17/05/2019 at 19:12

        Same Ranger. Have less than 500k for an upgrade, so it’s out of Blakely, Rockliff and Henderson. Would still have too many midfield slots to fill, so Rocky it is. I know Rocky will do Rocky things and I should have taken Henderson, but the seasons three parts down the toilet already, so Rocky it is!

          The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 19:29

          Feels good to take a punt sometimes eh Keen?
          if Rocky averages 100 at M8 that's not at all bad.
          I can't get on the Rocky train unfortunately….the burns…the burns…the burns….

            KeenButClueless · 17/05/2019 at 19:58

            You are right. Not sure when I will learn to stay away from these injury prone guys. Well, it’s a Hail Mary! So I might as well go full tilt and put the C on him. Against Gold Coast with no Touk Miller – here we go!

              The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 20:10

              Onya Keen. I'm pulllng the Blakely trade.
              Trade arse off. Bang! Bang!

                Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 21:08

                I like it ranger, I reckon I’ll bring him in in the next couple, i like the kid

John · 17/05/2019 at 18:29

My two trades are, Brayshaw to Macrae and Atkins to Stocker. Any thoughts?

hedski · 17/05/2019 at 18:31

Congratulations to those coaches playing me this week.
I will be fielding Gibbons, Hayes, Stocker, Parker and Petracelle.
That's two wins for you this round Shaker 👍😪

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 18:36

    It ain't over until the weightally challenged lady sings Hed, many will be having their sides shaken up this week.

    Shake_n_bake · 17/05/2019 at 18:54

    Im in the same boat Hedski!! Probably worse!!

      hedski · 17/05/2019 at 19:36

      Just had a look Shake, we are in for an epically shit battle!

The Bont · 17/05/2019 at 18:32

Who do I field out of: Duursma, Lockhart Clark and Answerth

    KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 18:33

    I reckon Duursma against the sun's

      The Bont · 17/05/2019 at 18:34

      Sorry I was meant to say which 2 should I field

        KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 18:49

        Oh sorry mate, Duursma and Lockhart I reckon. Try and loophole them if u can

    Ja191 · 17/05/2019 at 18:34

    Duursma and lockhart for me

      The Bont · 17/05/2019 at 18:35

      Lockhart even against the eagles

        Ja191 · 17/05/2019 at 18:49

        Lockhart/clark/answorth roll a dice

          The Bont · 17/05/2019 at 18:53

          Probably only 20 points between them anyway

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 19:00

    Field the ones with the highest 3 round average.

Tommo · 17/05/2019 at 18:46

Cunnington or Sloane?

    KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 19:02

    Sloane

Mitch · 17/05/2019 at 18:52

Alright Community I need your help.
350k in the bank after a double downgrade last week. Thinking of upgrading one of…
A) Matthew Parker
B) Tom Atkins
C) WIllem Drew

..to one of

A) Jack Macrae
B) Josh Kelly
C) Rory Sloane

Which combination???

    KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 19:01

    Is probably go Drew to Macrae seeing as drew isn't playing and Macrae is $125k under his starting price.

Dash · 17/05/2019 at 18:53

Which two go first this week in order of Atkins, Gibbons, Drew, Parker, Libba, Walsh

Cheers

    Dash · 17/05/2019 at 18:56

    Might add D Moore into the mix as well

Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 18:53

Hickey's in now, with Vardy, against Gawn..I thought something like this might happen.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 17/05/2019 at 19:02

Bloody hell shakers you are a great font of knowledge.

Make the early calls and majority of times spot on

Nailed it again and again before changes eventuate.

Take note the guy knows this stuff ! <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="👏" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f44f.svg"&gt;

Tommy · 17/05/2019 at 19:09

Need to pick 1 unfortunately. Rowbottom or stocker? Who do we think has better JS?

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 19:28

    Depends on how well they play, Stocker was better last week than his first game.
    Rowbottom's a fwd for Sydney so….

Fisherdann · 17/05/2019 at 19:12

Sloane or Dunkley?

    Gainsy · 17/05/2019 at 19:15

    Dunkley for me

iLoveNMFC · 17/05/2019 at 19:12

Drew to Dunkley and play Answerth?
OR
Moore to Hurn and play Petch?

Cheers community 👍🏼

    Gainsy · 17/05/2019 at 19:15

    1st

    LeDoctor · 17/05/2019 at 19:40

    I'm not so confident in Dunkley yet, wouldn't find it unlikely for him to be shoved back into the forward line and dish out 70s again. Hurn is a very solid option, more so than Dunkley, but not sure how Petch will go.

Gainsy · 17/05/2019 at 19:14

Everyone grabbing Stocker..?. seems unlikely to hold his place but nothing else rookie wise out there.
Also, looked at gunston but now im rethinking and worpel might be better…. thoughts

Tommo09 · 17/05/2019 at 19:15

Constable or Walsh or Gibbons out for Stocker?

    hedski · 17/05/2019 at 19:38

    Gibbons Walsh Constable in that order.

    Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 19:42

    All of them have better job security than Stocker, so be careful! I think the smart play is to hold Walsh until his bye. We are seeing Constable as on the edge of the Cats team list each week now. But both have much better output than Gibbons. So I would go Gibbons (then Constable, then Walsh).

TelescopicCox · 17/05/2019 at 19:18

Brayshaw…hold or fold? Asking for a friend

Would need to move Atkins to stocker to get him to a Macrae type

Brett · 17/05/2019 at 19:18

So heaps of people have commented lately saying they have almost no rookies on field. I find it hard to believe. I will have 7 rookies on field this week, and are consistently scoring in top 1%.

So i ask how many rookies should we still have ?

    KSinny · 17/05/2019 at 19:19

    I have 6 with Crouch out this week

      Sam_01 · 17/05/2019 at 19:25

      7 on field counting Moore and walshy also have crouch on the pine

    Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 19:39

    Depends on structure Brett, I’m midprice heavy, with franklin and crouch out I’m fielding O’Brien, Duursma and setters. But also Moore libba brayshaw brouch smith and williams

    hedski · 17/05/2019 at 19:40

    I'll have seven with Crouch and Cogs out this week.

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 19:40

    I'm fielding 5, but 2 of them are Walsh and Hore.

    JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 19:50

    Nine this weekend due to injuries, two in defence, five in the midfield, one in the ruck and one in the fwd line. I will be doing two upgrades next weekend. As for how many we should have at this stage, I would say no more than six.

      Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 20:11

      Seriously 5 rookies on field in the middle John! That is a rough week bud!

        JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 20:35

        Sure is Swan, but also due to my different structure this year. I decided at the last minute to change it from the one I always use to something completely different. I decided due to the fwd rookies being not that good and the midfield ones looking the goods, I would only start with four premiums in the middle and since I was going to have two mid priced players on each of the def and fwd lines I didn't want to have any in the mids, so I started four rookies there, unlike most other teams who went deep in the middle. So when I lost two keepers from the mids today, it hurt.

          Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 21:02

          Yep that makes it rough, if it makes you feel better I bought franklin in as a pod five weeks ago for an 80 followed by a month of bench warming

    The Ranger · 17/05/2019 at 19:50

    5 plus Libba and Moore if he gets up

    Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 20:00

    People say a lot Brett. I have a 10in python too. I guess peoples interpretations of who is a rookie or not varies also. But my rule is DEF and FWD players must be averaging 90+, RUC and MID players must be averaging 100+. If they are not (excepting all the exceptions), then they are a player (rookie/mid pricer) that needs to yet be upgraded

      Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 20:01

      Oh… I have 10 that fit my criteria – ouch!!! how depressing

        Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 20:09

        The question was “rookies” on field though saritz, not midpricers?

    redherringfc · 17/05/2019 at 20:25

    I have 8 this week, but once I bring in Fyfe that drops to 7 with Crouch on the bench.

    I’m usually around top 10% and very happy with how i’m tracking. I’m confident of making finals and going into them with close to the best team you can have on paper with around 4-6 trades.

    I think a lot (but not all) of teams fielding few rookies are very heavy on mid priced players and will (hopefully) be easy beats come finals.

    Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 21:07

    I have 7 on field this week … 2 DEF, 2 MID and 3 FWD.. but only 1 premo on the bench.

cash_cows · 17/05/2019 at 19:44

Cogs + Parker -> Kelly + Stocker.

Sounding like Cogs might miss next week as well and been looking for an excuse to get rid of him.

    Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 19:52

    Need to hold your Premo's…. until you are fully upgraded (after the bye rounds). Im sure once Cogs gets his hand right his output improves. I guess you need to back your gut, but typically sideways trading is a poor strategy

    Jey · 17/05/2019 at 20:22

    I traded Cogs to Kelly. Kelly is a gun and will hopefully post some huge scores. Cogs has a Dusty 2018 feeling about him and unlike last year I'm calling time on my underperfoming mid. Dusty hurt my ranks too much last year and Cogs isn't helping you missing two weeks minimum.

    Sometimes premiums have to go and I think Cogs is in that camp right now. So long as you think it wont hurt your team plan too much.

Gibbs · 17/05/2019 at 19:52

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Rowbottom? Didn’t have a great start to afl but dominated the neafl last 2 weeks had 28 and 27 think he was close to best on both games, is he an option over stocker?

TKC · 17/05/2019 at 20:00

Thinking of trading in Josh Kelly and Stoker but not sure which mids to trade out. Have:
Neale, Cripps, Fyfe, Macrae, Rockliff, B.Crouch, Walsh, Liberatore and bench Constable, Stack and Hayes.

Thinking maybe Libba and Walsh? Or Libba and Constable (job security is iffy, twice in a row back in as emergency)? Or Libba and Hayes as while he has more cash to generate, it will be much slower than Constable (if playing) and Walsh is better coverage over bye roungs? Thoughts?

SJ34 · 17/05/2019 at 20:03

Heeney and worpel to J Kelly and Fyfe…. I think I’ve done well this week… god I hope I’ve done well…

    Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 20:07

    The SC gods have a way of making our plans look utterly idiotic. Good luck!

    Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 21:10

    Gee that feels like 2 keepers to 2 keepers, obviously a points boost in the middle but who fills the shoes of the 2 forwards?

Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 20:04

Got a bad feeling about Gawns scoring output tonight. I hope you guys have a safer VC option. Can Oliver back-up his output from last week?

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 20:07

    Hope im wrong but reckon Hutchings could go to Clarry. And Hickey late in means Gawn;'s coming up against 2 rucks. Im going Grundy VC i reckon

      Saritz · 17/05/2019 at 20:08

      Same Tommy. Grundy into Fyfe

Holty01 · 17/05/2019 at 20:12

Good luck everyone for the round.

    Fisherdann · 17/05/2019 at 20:18

    Yes good luck everyone! Same to you Holty.

    Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 21:07

    feel it might be needed this week!

      Holty01 · 17/05/2019 at 21:13

      Yep. I’m going to have to pull something out of the hat to put something half decent onfield this week

        Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:15

        thanks holty but i'll need more than luck this week haha i'm in real trouble even had to hold brayshaw in the end!
        all the best to you mate keep on chipping away at that OA.

COREYSC · 17/05/2019 at 20:18

Hi Community, I’m Very lost what should I do I have 26 Trades Left and 233K in the Bank
Lloyd, Z.Williams, B.Smith, Hore, Duursma, Clark (Answerth, Burgess)

Cripps, Neale, Fyfe, Macrae, M.Crouch, B.Crouch, Walsh, Gibbons (Atkins, Hayes, Scott)

Grundy, Gawn (Bines)

T.Kelly, Dunkley, Dangerfield, Heeney, Drew, Parker (Setterfield, Corbett)

Trades · 17/05/2019 at 20:21

My chance to field a half-decent team has been screwed with Bines locked out. My god. I do not know what to do. So many outs.

Trades · 17/05/2019 at 20:36

Cogs to Rocky Drew to Greene?
Or
Atkins Drew out for 2 fwds $580k to spend no idea who to get.
Atkins and Moore with $630.
Just to field a team.

FearTheBeard · 17/05/2019 at 20:47

Rowbottom & Stocker in, Atkins & Ross out? Or try get a premium in this week?

Or do I bite the bullet take Cogs out and go JKelly or Dunkley and bank another 80k? and downgrade the other for Stocker?

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:06

    what is rowbottoms JS like FTB?
    I don't know alot about him other than his dominated the NEAFL.
    if you think cogs only a week hold if longer i'd trade but if he gets that hand 100% he will kill it again i hope

One Touch Wonder · 17/05/2019 at 20:54

Took Derek’s SHARK MOVE advice and put the VC on Hurn.

    dontblushbaby · 17/05/2019 at 21:08

    Did Derek take his own advise ?

      Derek · 17/05/2019 at 21:54

      I suggested Max and my ‘smokie’ Was Hurn

      Luckily Drew didn’t get named so I had a loophole. So I changed from Max to Grundy

        Derek · 17/05/2019 at 23:14

        put The C on Hurn in my draft.

Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 20:56

is larkey worth the extra 50k spend over stocker?
i hate bringing in players after a rise but I feel he is far better than stocker for JS and probably output?

    Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 21:09

    Hey Mav, my theory is the the Blues will continue to play Stocker through the season .. they have too much invested in him to leave him in the magoos. He needs to be ready to fly next year .. Gibbons will go before Stocker .. I'm bringing him in this week ..

    Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:21

    yeah i agree on that front lazza that theory makes the most sense but with plowman, simpson, jones and williamson to come back into the side stocker must make way you'd think?

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:36

    Probably worth it Mav, i was contemplating it myself a lot this week, named onfield as CHF, and looks a solid player who will only get better.
    I would've done it if my other trade could've worked out.

      Hayden · 17/05/2019 at 22:01

      Atley from port?
      Highly rated at the club and was firmly fixed on a debut before pre season injury. Worth a look maverick and russty_

        Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 22:05

        For sure Hayden but not before he's even played a game, on the bubble for sure if he's had 2 decent games in a row.
        On the watchlist for sure.

          Hayden · 17/05/2019 at 22:25

          Yeah hasn’t played but I still rate him higher than stocker Big call but not rating stocker one bit to many names to return I think atley will hold in ports 22

Trades · 17/05/2019 at 21:04

I’ve got 8 non-players + Darling & Brayshaw.
Record low this week

    Frank · 17/05/2019 at 21:07

    Do you have umpires in your team?

      Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 21:16

      😂😂😂😂

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:21

    So you have 10 non players?…that sucks mate.

    Trades · 17/05/2019 at 21:56

    And Petrucelle

Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 21:16

I’ve been trying not to, but brayshaw I am beginning to hate you

    Yeahnah · 17/05/2019 at 21:18

    Nothing feels better than trading him this week and seeing him still spud it up.

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:37

    I've got Lockhart backing up Moore if he's out so hmmm, I won't be liking him too much if he doesn't get his act together.

    hedski · 17/05/2019 at 21:49

    Same Swans, he needs to be in the guts not on the wing.

      Swans2012 · 17/05/2019 at 22:13

      I really don’t get there thinking sometimes hed

Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:23

Shouldn't have doubted Gawny's ability to smash anyone…switched the VC off him at the last minute to Oliver. Doh.
Hopefully rednuts still does ok.

    KeenButClueless · 17/05/2019 at 21:30

    I also took it off him. Should listen to my own advice

      Maverick_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:33

      I have it on him but only because i didn't see the late in of hickey or i'd also have changed it off him also.
      Hopefully a huge 2nd half from the big beautifully bearded brute

        hedski · 17/05/2019 at 21:48

        I took it off when I seen the Hickey in 😪

    JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 21:32

    I had the VC on Gawny all week, then I saw West Coast were playing the two rucks, thought about that and took it off Max 3min before the start. Sometimes it pays not to overthink things.

      Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:45

      True that John, I would've scored much better last week if I didn't buy into the Danger out hype.

    COREYSC · 17/05/2019 at 21:43

    I know how you feel mate I took the vc off Gawn to turn Grundy’s c to a vc to Captain Fyfe

      JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 22:02

      That's still a good combo though Corey.

BradleyTC99 · 17/05/2019 at 21:36

Hey fellas, would be great if you could leave a comment with which option looks the better option? Tough week this week and Stocker is most certainly not ideal, but if moore is out i cop a zero so need to make one of these trades.

1. Ross and Atkins – Walters and Stocker
2. Ross and Drew – Stocker and Boak
3. Moore – Walters

    Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 21:43

    I'd say option 2 Bradley, Boak or Marshall..not Moore, he's being rested.

hayden · 17/05/2019 at 21:57

remember the hype around J.Atley in the pre season loves a clearance and can seriously play.
anyone jumping on early over stocker or hately

    Trades · 17/05/2019 at 22:10

    Yeah I’m thinking of doing it. F it. Why not

Trades · 17/05/2019 at 22:12

Can someone post links about Moore out? Can’t find anything on this?

    TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 22:14

    Mark Stevens announced it on twitter

Russty_ · 17/05/2019 at 22:13

Kudos to the 9140 coaches who invested in their team's future bringing Hately in.
Kinda like the Stock Market, can make you dance in the street or jump out a 30 storey window.
Wondering why those people brought him in early…and then didn't have time to follow up on the result?
Surely if you're not sure, and won't have time to reverse, you'd just not do it in the first place?

    JohnDJ59 · 17/05/2019 at 22:23

    All I can think of Russty is they wanted to upgrade a player, but needed to downgrade one as well and didn't think much of the ones that were playing.

    DavidC · 18/05/2019 at 06:28

    With Cogs to come back in I can't see Hately getting a game anytime soon. Deadwoood on the bench for the byes is not good.

      BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2019 at 09:43

      To be fair, all of the current rookies on the bubble could be dead wood by the byes.

      Stocker etc don't look too great.

COREYSC · 17/05/2019 at 22:24

Hmm thinking maybe
Atkins to Atley (for Bye structure)
Gibbons to J.Kelly
Frees up my byes structure in the midfield round 14 for me is a shocker with both Crouch Brothers and Cripps, Walsh

Is Atley’s JS good enough? Avg 108 in SANFL and has played games at AFL Level before

Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 22:33

Bloody Hurn .. with a BE of 135, I thought… yep will get him a little cheaper next week… he hits is BE half way through the last … is a gun .. easily the best DEF this year ..

hedski · 17/05/2019 at 22:39

Wow, Ryan was next to Kennedy when he marked that outside 50 and sprinted in and flew for that hanger over Gawn nearly as quick as it was kicked in!

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 22:39

Starting Hurn is probably the only good thing i've done up to this point in supercoach! lol

    The Ranger · 18/05/2019 at 00:21

    Hats off to anyone who started Hurn,

      Derek · 18/05/2019 at 11:36

      Wasn’t on my radar until I saw some JLT numbers on kick in and people playing on from a kick in. He was locked in. That has added 20 pts to his average alone.

      Stuck the C on him in my draft league, very happy

AuroraBorealis?! · 17/05/2019 at 22:40

Hurn finally has one mediocre game, i'm sitting here licking my lips waiting for the price fall, and now hes gonna pull out a 160. Had a choice at the start of the season to go Walsh + Billings or Hurn + 117k rookie. Not sure what was the better call but it's leaning towards Hurn at this point

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 07:17

    Not having Walsh would have been a bad call though.

    JohnDJ59 · 18/05/2019 at 11:58

    I started with Walsh and Billings, AB, and am happy I did, I traded in Hurn in round 7 and that's worked out alright.

TommyC99 · 17/05/2019 at 23:14

So im wanting to bring in Boak for Drew. Should i be concerned that i'm paying close to top dollar? I looked at his run of games and its quite nice. after the suns this week, he has hawks, saints and freo in the next month. Other option is Marshall but i'm not entirely sold on him and Walters but Blakely coming back probably hurts his mid minutes

    Lazza · 17/05/2019 at 23:39

    Boak has a massive 154 BE … never been near that number … wait a week….. or two…

      TommyC99 · 18/05/2019 at 09:28

      Playing the suns so Could he get near that?

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 07:14

    Wait til round 13, perfect time to get him. At that point pay whatever you need to.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 11:31

    I was planning to wait a week. But with talk of Moore being out I need to get him this week. Might be paying a bit over for him but I need to get him eventually so it might as well be now. Whitfield in 2 weeks

Jack · 17/05/2019 at 23:42

Need to trade Drew out and can afford a 525k replacement on any line, agonisingly short of Tim Kelly! I'm liking the look of either Dunkley or Sloane. I think Sloane will score more points for the rest of the year but am tentative getting him in as I already have Matt Crouch. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Johnno · 17/05/2019 at 23:53

    Dunkley looks good now mate. If I didn’t have other issues I would’ve jumped on him this week.

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 07:12

    Hawkins or Cameron will both be excellent players by average, but you’ll get some mediocre scores along the way.

    Both should score very well this week. Cameron might even smash his 140 break even. Wouldn’t be a bad captain option in the final game of the week if you need a massive score to win your leagues.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 11:26

    Do you have Rocky?

Rocksta_ · 17/05/2019 at 23:50

In my haste to trade this evening pre-match due to having a heap of players out, I stuffed up my Captain’s loophole. Gawn was my only real VC option, but I have the VC on Grundy. Not only have I missed out on the 144 double up, I will now have to just go the straight C on Grundy. He should get it done but just goes to show you can’t do anything in a hurry or last minute with this caper.

    Johnno · 17/05/2019 at 23:52

    You can’t vc Grundy and c on danger?

      Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 00:05

      No bud, as my only remaining non playing players are Burgess and M Crouch. The Adelaide game starts 25 mins after the Collingwood Game. Also, in order to utilize Burgess, I’d have to loop him with Williams if Grundy plays well, and take Lockharts 52. Thus, my only real VC Option was Gawn. I’ll be surprised if Grundy doesn’t destroy Marshall tmr, but you never really know and very sloppy on my part all the same.

        DavidC · 18/05/2019 at 06:25

        Surprisingly STK haven't been giving up a lot of points to rucks. Still think Grundy goes big though.

Johnno · 17/05/2019 at 23:51

Need to field either setterfield or Corbett (sigh). What do people think?

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 07:13

    Setterfield

Dan · 18/05/2019 at 05:54

I'm now trying to choose between:

Option 1
Atkins -> Stocker
Drew -> Dunkley

Option 2
Drew -> Larkey
Walsh -> J Kelly

Would love your thoughts.

    Hawks · 18/05/2019 at 07:28

    Option 1.

    Dunkley is value still, and Walsh is still a reliable scorer.

    James Sykes · 18/05/2019 at 12:23

    i would go atkins to stocker and walsh into kelly so long as it doesnt give you donuts up forward

Hawks · 18/05/2019 at 07:24

My midfield is looking worst than shakey this week.

I have Drew, Hately, Cogs, Ross & Scott.

Was going to swing Drew forward for Heeney, but now hearing that Moore likely to miss, will have just the 6 scoring forwards.

Waiting to see is Moore plays, if not I will have to do the 2 trades just to have 22 scoring players.

Thinking double downgrade at this stage (but downgrade options are minimal), with the first trade being-

Ross to Blakey via Heeney swing – really liked what I saw from Blakey last week.

Looking for suggestions on 2nd trade.

Bob · 18/05/2019 at 08:19

Does anyone here know much about J Atley mid rookie from Port?
How many SANFL games has he played on the trot before playing this weekend?

Any info about him appreciated

    Rick Grimes · 18/05/2019 at 09:08

    I was keen on him preseason. Reckon he'll go real well.

      Bob · 18/05/2019 at 10:40

      What do you think of his job security?

        Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 11:14

        Been killing it in the sanfl bob played 6 games
        I am considering it he was a walk up starter before a pre season injury struck. But will wines coming back hurt atley? Will drew be back next week? I hope a port supporter can help u out there on his JS

          Bob · 18/05/2019 at 11:36

          Thanks guys. JS is definitely a concern but I need to go 1 up / down, and with so few solid downgrade options this week he might take the gamble on him.
          There is Stocker and Rowbottom but I don't think there much diff between the 3 of them.

Dash · 18/05/2019 at 08:31

Who is order of priority to trade this week?
Atkins, Parker, Gibbons, Libba, Walsh, D Moore, Drew
Libba has lost about 70K already since he peaked.
Atkins has BE 53 but has a 12 rolling through and not playing

I have about 300K and looking at perhaps the players you would have on your bench normally. Looks like Gibbons, Atkins or Parker.

Looking forward to seeing what you think

DavidC · 18/05/2019 at 08:32

Hurn only in 14% of teams, that surprises me a bit. Almost a pod.

Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 08:58

I know his name is Hately, but for Fks Sake Giants, show the boy some Love!!!!!!

Stupid Coach · 18/05/2019 at 09:04

Any idea how long Kieran Jack is out for Sydney. Trying to decide whether to bring in Rowbottom or Stocker in for Ross as bench coverage. Both have scored the same after two games but it seems that Stocker has the better JS having played the last two games.

Thoughts?

RealDealNeale · 18/05/2019 at 09:11

If De Goey is out I’ll cop a donut. Can afford any forward for Drew up $490k, but none of them excite me.

Other option is to bring in a defender for sub $490k and swing Moore back, so long as he’s not a late out. Possibly Hoult, Houston or Crisp?

TelescopicCox · 18/05/2019 at 09:33

I’ll need to move out Cogs and a rookie to avoid a donut (have 24 trades left so a sideways trade doesn’t bother me)

A – Cogs & Drew to J.Kelly & Stocker
B – Cogs & Drew to Neale & Stocker
C – Cogs & Moore to Rocky & Dunkley
D – Cogs & Moore to J.Kelly & Marshall

C & D only if Moore is a late out

    TOPHAWK1 · 18/05/2019 at 09:51

    I like option A. However, instead of going Stocker, I might gamble on Joe Atley. Great wraps on the kid and debuting against Gold Coast.

      TommyC99 · 18/05/2019 at 10:01

      I havent really heard a lot about Atley. But a few people around here have mentioned that hes quite highly rated. Stocker is the safer choice of course but would he be first to go when Simmo is back? At the same time blues have to rate him for what they gave up

    James Sykes · 18/05/2019 at 12:21

    A

BradleyTC99 · 18/05/2019 at 09:53

Thoughts on Walters? Looking at either trading Atkins and getting Walters or trading Drew and getting in Boak. Which ones is the better option?

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 10:42

    blakely will effect Walters. He will get less midfield time

TommyC99 · 18/05/2019 at 10:11

For those who are downgrading this week, are we just going safe and bringing in Stocker, or are we punting on Joe Atley?

    BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2019 at 10:42

    Stocker even though I don't like it at all.

      Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 11:09

      will drew and wines drop atley back into the 2s before a price rise though tommy? Big wraps on him in pre season though and been very good in the sanfl

    Steve · 18/05/2019 at 11:03

    Going Atkins – Atley and Drew – Dunkley taking a risk but looked at Atley at the start of the season

    hedski · 18/05/2019 at 11:23

    Stocker.
    Will look at getting Atley when/if he's on the bubble.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 12:09

    I like the look of Rowbottom, but he has a round 13 bye and I need all the warm bodies that week I can get.

    Although if I trade Atkins to Rowbottom I can go Moore to Boak. Trading in Stocker I’m $3k short, otherwise I trade out Libba.

johnno2908 · 18/05/2019 at 10:30

I dont know why, but I cannot stop looking at Aaron Naughton in defense at $336k…. Has Geelong this week which is a concern. But the -31 BE, could make $100k+ by his bye if(and thats a big IF) his form continues. The 97 last week in average conditions at Ballarat last week has really got me thinking.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 12:05

    He is a fair way off being in top 6 defenders, is this just for cash? A trade not worth $100k

Banga · 18/05/2019 at 11:35

Drew – Boak

Or

Atkins – Walters

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 12:02

    Boak will be top 6 forward

    Walters is going good but could be effected by Blakely being back. He will get less midfield time.

    James Sykes · 18/05/2019 at 12:21

    100% option 1 please

Bubes · 18/05/2019 at 11:48

Hey guys! Need a little bit of help for my team… Currently have 21 trades and looking at trading Atkins to T. Kelly in order to ensure I have 8 playing mids this week (M.Crouch and Coniglio on the bench).

For my second trade, should I upgrade Wash to Sloane/Dunkley? Or sideways Coniglio to J.Kelly/Zerrett?

Cheers!

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 12:00

    Try and hold Cogs. The rest will do him good.

    I know it seems a long way off, but I look at GWS’s last 4 games of the season (SC finals) and want to have as many GWS players as possible.

    3 home games in a row against swans, hawks and dogs followed by Suns in the last week.

    If you trade him out now you won’t get him back

    If you ca turn Walsh into a Sloane/Dunkley that will give you more points, Walsh has done his job and the rookies usually start to get tired about now.

      TOPHAWK1 · 18/05/2019 at 12:11

      I think you are right Derek. I have both Cogs and M Crouch sitting on the bench this week. Both should be back next week. I think Walsh will turn into J Kelly this week and then perhaps Drew down to Atley. Happy to take a risk on Atley. Not sold Stocker and Rowbottom. Sorry about Laird in Draft mate. Had to hang onto him despite Yeo being a gun midfielder. Defenders that score weekly tonnes are as rare as hens teeth. Cheers mate

        Derek · 18/05/2019 at 13:29

        I might be ok this week without Laird.

        The C on Hurn 161, and Yeo 136 were my only two players last night.

        I’ll e back later with another offer for him

Ja191 · 18/05/2019 at 12:18

KSinny · 18/05/2019 at 12:23

      kevdupe · 18/05/2019 at 12:54

      If we can get in, what you guys thinking to do with Moore? Was thinking a straight swap to Gunston. I don't like the rookies this week.

        Trades · 18/05/2019 at 12:55

        Yeah Gunston the best out of the 450 and under lot

        Derek · 18/05/2019 at 13:00

        I can go Moore to Boak, but that means Atkins to Rowbottom. Stocker was $3k short.

BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2019 at 12:53

      Stocker

Tommy · 18/05/2019 at 13:09

Who to field for Moore being out – Parker or Corbett?

    BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2019 at 13:10

    Parker

Bill · 18/05/2019 at 13:09

Should I trade Moore to Dunkley or Drew to Billlings?

    Ja191 · 18/05/2019 at 13:11

    Moore to dunkley

TelescopicCox · 18/05/2019 at 13:22

Last minute panic!

Cogs and Moore to Dunkley and Rocky
Cogs and Drew to J.Kelly and Stocker

    Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 13:23

    kellly & stocker TC

      TelescopicCox · 18/05/2019 at 13:24

      Cheers Mav. Balta will be my cover for Moore

Trades · 18/05/2019 at 13:34

Drew to Dunkley, Danger or Boak?

    Finnius · 18/05/2019 at 13:35

    Dunkley – Boak and Danger will both be cheaper next week.

Trades · 18/05/2019 at 13:40

Gunston or Marshall?

    Trades · 18/05/2019 at 13:41

    Atkins to Atley
    Drew to one of these guys
    Or
    Coniglio and Drew for Atley and Dunkley

Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 13:47

That was silly. Had the flu jab yesterday so spent a lot of the morning in bed. Just went to swap my vc from Grundy to Neale but 1min to late. Let’s hope it doesn’t bite me on the bum

    Nathan · 18/05/2019 at 13:49

    I've got mine on Grundy too so hopefully we're not disappointed mate!

    Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 13:49

    you'd expect grundy to monster st kilda holty.
    hope it works out for ya mate!
    I can't split larkey, stocker, atley or rowbottom need one to come in to avoid a donut, any suggestions?

      Finnius · 18/05/2019 at 13:50

      I like Atley Mav. Larkey too expensive, others have poor JS and scoring potential.

        Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 13:52

        I like atley also finn but just looked at ports injury list alot of good players to return soon…
        he was almost a certainty R1 before struck down by injury though which is a positive and been killing the SANFL

      redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 14:15

      Since he’s on field, roll the dice on Atley.

      Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 14:15

      I think Larkey and Stocker are the safest bets. They should keep getting games in poor teams. I do like Atley but can afford to wait on him. Can’t honestly say much about Rowbottom as haven’t seen him play

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 14:08

    Hi Holty, I was thinking about putting the C on Neale too but checking his average and highest score against the Crows, they're both the lowest out of all the teams.

      Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 14:29

      New club, no tag, think Brisbane will do well today. Grundys strengths are what he does around the ground. Just have a feeling Marshall might nullify his influence as Marshall should match him with his running ability

Nathan · 18/05/2019 at 13:47

I'm 5k short on going Drew straight to Kelly so I think I'm just going to hold off on all trades this week, even though I've got Atkins, Parker, Drew, Duursma and Gibbons all ready to go and with MCrouch out. There just isn't anyone else who i am interested in downgrading to so I'll wait for the chaos of this week to blow over and I'll assess the aftermath. I'll be keeping an eye on Blakely and hoping Kelly has another shocker soon enough.

Hoot · 18/05/2019 at 14:01

M. Hinge anyone?

Tiger · 18/05/2019 at 14:24

Can anyone tell me how much cash walsh ( Carlton) would drop if he scored a 70 this week. Cheers

    Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 14:34

    roughly 10k Tiger

      Tiger · 18/05/2019 at 15:50

      Thanks Mav 👍

JugHead · 18/05/2019 at 14:44

I don't like any of the rookies on offer this week. Gritting my teeth and gunna wait until more bubble boys arrive.

Thinking of trading out Libba (who wont be a top 10 mid), swinging Duursma to mids and bringing in Tom Stewart (who I think could be a top 10 def)
Will cost me about 70k and avoid Libba's projected price drop.
Does anyone have an opinion on this?

JohnDJ59 · 18/05/2019 at 14:47

Go Billings you bloody beauty.

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:05

    Nice John, hope he tons up for you, killing it on 18 possies at half time.

      JohnDJ59 · 18/05/2019 at 15:12

      Your Saints need to start kicking some goals Russty, or you will end up like the Dees last night.

        Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:16

        Same old story mate, most of our players couldn't hit the side of a Barn!

    Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:07

    Well done JD. The bastard burnt me that bad last year I put him on the ‘never again’ list. It’s looking like I need to get over that! I’m at the ground watching it unfold.

      JohnDJ59 · 18/05/2019 at 15:15

      I had him last year as well Rocksta, but I traded him out before he lost too much cash. I liked that they were finally playing him where they should be in the pre season games, so gave him another go.

Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:08

treloar 20 touches for 54 pts at HT.
I'm assuming he's butchering it again, hmm.

Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:13

Answerth's looking a bit Fool's Goldy now after 2 good scores in his first two games, 49 last week and now looking like a huge dud.

    JohnDJ59 · 18/05/2019 at 15:18

    I have him on the bench, where he will stay till someone else comes along.

      Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:19

      thankfully i looped him with the E.
      I'll be throwing clark onfield now.

        Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:23

        Yeah bench here too Mav, means I'm starting Stocker now…gulp!

          Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:33

          i hope stocker can pump out a solid score for ya!
          He may be my M8 yet :/ I am still to replace ross I don't like atley, stocker or rowbottom for JS and larkey is pricey.
          I have serious commitment issues this week haha

            Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:36

            I had to do something early cause I wanted to get Marshall in this week, I reckon Larkey is best of that bunch, pricey but good JS, named as CHF.

    DavidC · 19/05/2019 at 06:43

    Poor Yesterday, might get dropped.

    Daz · 19/05/2019 at 09:16

    Lot of people would of used him for coverage of Moore I imagine.

Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 15:16

oh no.🙄

    Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 15:35

    Was 1 minute late putting the vc on Neale and he is going HUGE

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 15:38

    What

      Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 15:56

      From my comment an hour ago

AuroraBorealis?! · 18/05/2019 at 15:17

Could Kent and Membrey please stop looking so much like Parker? I keep getting excited everytime they get the ball

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 15:37

    With all the excitement today I missed the lockout. Still have Moore in field, meaning I have to take Parkers score no matter what.

    I’m just not watching. It’s too painful.

      Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:42

      I took Parker over Balta Derek, the spud's been on 26 for about an hour now.

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 15:40

    If the player looks competent it’s NOT Parker.

Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:18

First time I’ve seen Marshall play live. He’s definitely a ‘Get On’. The boy ‘can’ play.

every damn time · 18/05/2019 at 15:27

what a suprise geelong with a late change

Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:30

You heard it first right here…….Young, is a Gun!

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:37

    Maybe Young in soon, Parker out!

      Rocksta_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:48

      Next week mate. The boy is a talent

Moggy · 18/05/2019 at 15:48

Hi all, last minute URGENT advice required. I want to paint the fence and bring in Fyfe and Stocker. My two choices are to trade out:

1. Gibbons and libba or;
2. Atkins and Walsh

Urgent opinions requested.

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 15:55

    Option 1, Dunkley took Libba's job, and he'll lose more money this week, Walsh plays mostly midfield at least.

    Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 16:36

    1

neil demons delight · 18/05/2019 at 15:54

With Groundy going home next year would Carjton's no.1 pick and ROB seal the deal It would for me

    Shake_n_bake · 18/05/2019 at 18:05

    Haha won’t go!

      neil demons delight · 18/05/2019 at 18:15

      Knew you would comment Shake Reading between the lines after his interview i think he will .He would be sorely missed

        Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 12:05

        Said in sa paper he'd like to go home if thinking about raising a family. Personally, Id like to see the Crows get him but not st the expense of a possible no.1 draft pick – especially in next year's draft. He'll be a free sgent the year after so that would be a better outcome.

          Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 12:07

          Sorry, s too close to a on the keyboard.

            neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 12:50

            worth every bit of no 1 Beez

              Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 13:25

              I guess you're right NDD. I'm playing you in guns but think you've got me covered with the no. of outs I had.

redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 15:58

I’ve talked him up for 3 weeks now. It’s time to put my money where my mouth is.

Hawkins as Captain.

I’m backing in a 180, if not 200.

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 16:00

    Although another 40 from Grundy and I might chicken out.

      redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 16:25

      I think I’ll take Grundys 137.

      Wasn’t he on 69 at 3/4 time?

        Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 16:35

        Something like that. Huge last quarter

Brett · 18/05/2019 at 16:07

Screwed up my loophole. Captain fyfe or j kelly?

BrownlowBoy · 18/05/2019 at 16:08

I was fine with Parker on my bench, but thanks to Darcy Moore Parker's score now counts.

He's dropped the biggest spud score this week and as soon as lockout is over I don't know who he's being traded for but he is getting the chop from my team.

    Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 16:34

    Agreed

      AuroraBorealis?! · 18/05/2019 at 16:37

      Ditto

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 17:02

    Reckon Young was auditioning for his job this week, in the Team and in Supercoach.
    Parker scored SFA in 3 quarters, spud!

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 17:13

    Had the same problem

Dash · 18/05/2019 at 16:22

Drew to Dunkley. Pull the trigger?

    Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 16:33

    👍New club

Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 16:33

Grundy with a 86 point 2nd half. Thank you.
Although I am no longer watching Brisbane as I’m cringing each time Neale gets it.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 17:12

    Neal slowed down a bit and Sloane wasn’t that far behind

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 17:56

    I think it was a 68 point last quarter. I had to rush to get the C on Scott.

GreendaleFC · 18/05/2019 at 16:39

Constable a late in again. Couldn't quite get him on field before the game started. Means Hayes is on field for me.

    Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 16:55

    Constable was confirmed yesterday to play Atkins was withdrawn Friday arvo from geelongs squad

      GreendaleFC · 18/05/2019 at 17:45

      Damn just wasn't paying attention then. I guess the fact that he doesn't get listed as an in threw me off.

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 17:01

    Hardly late , Abbott was a late in for Stanley, need to check your team more often mate lol

Derek · 18/05/2019 at 17:26

My first serious stuff up for the year, and I blame ScoMo.

Had to go and vote, headed off before the cats dogs game.

Thought I’d do my two trades on the way.

Libba and Atkins out

Stocker and Boak (via Drew) in.

Only problem, super weak phone signal, just got Atkins trade done, but didn’t get Libba to Boak.

Don’t have enough cash to go Drew to Boak and there isn’t anyone else in forwards i like.

Have $502k

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 17:28

    Not enjoying watching Libba fall over a lot

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 17:50

    Damn Derek!…can't believe you put voting in the stupid Election before Supercoach mate, Libba on 35 now so hopefully the spud can eek out another 35 or 40 points for you.
    Could even ton up depending on where his scatterbrained Coach leaves him in the second half.
    Can't believe Bont's just playing forward, and I could've taken Macrae over him..cest la vie.

      Derek · 18/05/2019 at 18:45

      My fault. I know the community centre is in a low area and gets bad phone strength.

      I was just yelling at my phone

      I’f I trade out Drew I don’t have a VC loophole to take Grundy score. Option is to trade Durrsna out and swing Drew into guts, but if I leave him on field for the VC donut, I have to take Hayns score. Currently on 28 at 3/4 time. Interesting decisions to make

        Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 19:09

        I'd just take Libba's 70-75 mate, not a total disaster.

        hedski · 18/05/2019 at 20:42

        How can you have no phone reception?
        Don't you live in Sydney?
        Vote 1 Clive Palmer.

NoLanguage96 · 18/05/2019 at 17:44

Community!

Sorry if it's a dumb question but if I have two non playing players on field in the same forward line with the emergency on both bench players and the C on one of the non playing forwards, do I get both emergency scores and the double VC score???

    redherringfc · 18/05/2019 at 17:54

    yes to all

      NoLanguage96 · 18/05/2019 at 18:07

      Thanks red! Just had that sinking feeling for a second

    Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 19:21

    Yep

Maverick_ · 18/05/2019 at 17:44

Drew -> kelly this weekend
Gee I hope there is a Big second half to come.

Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 18:17

Swans Kennedy a late out .. carnage continues

    No idea · 18/05/2019 at 18:21

    Hopefully that means they put Heeney in the midfield

Sam_01 · 18/05/2019 at 18:20

Parker Answerth Lockhart Wilkie cheers spuds
The drew/Moore/crouch outs killed me this week

No idea · 18/05/2019 at 18:23

Meanwhile Kelly on 30 and Clark on 7 midway through the 3rd!! WTF Are they being tagged / injured respectively??

Will · 18/05/2019 at 18:34

Drew played in the SANFL today. Any chance of him being a late in tomorrow?

    dontblushbaby · 18/05/2019 at 18:53

    Played or didn't play ?

      Will · 18/05/2019 at 19:17

      Played

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 19:04

    Nah no way, he'd need to recover from playing today.

      Will · 18/05/2019 at 19:18

      Good, he's my captain loophole this week

    Joel · 18/05/2019 at 19:42

    hahaha why would he play tomorrow if he played SANFL today

Ja191 · 18/05/2019 at 18:59

Who’s this darcy fort guy and what’s he done with Darcy fort

Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 19:12

Oh man that was a huuuuge grab by Tom Stewart then!…what a classic

    Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 19:19

    Yep great hanger, but riding Libba who was bent over .. maybe 4 ft of the ground 😁

      Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 19:41

      Yeah like getting a ride on an Oompa Loompa, he did get up pretty high though, he loved it too! 🙂

        Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 20:42

        Just kidding Russty, it will make a fantastic photo .. loved his team mate clapping him .. Stewart’s smile lasted the whole quarter …

          Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 20:58

          I'll take his 114 mate, hard as a Cat's head !

            Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 00:14

            I’m now re thinking my final 6 DEFs

              Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 00:17

              He had a shitty first quarter too Lazza, the guy has good bounce back powers.

cash_cows · 18/05/2019 at 19:16

Balta or Corbett on field?

Connor · 18/05/2019 at 19:33

Well guess who forgot he had to loophole Grundy before tonight's game and left the C on Fyfe

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 19:50

    That's something you should do straight after the game Connor, I've got the C on Fyfey boy too so good luck to both of us.

COREYSC · 18/05/2019 at 20:02

This week could be a huge scoring week for those who got their on field rookies right unlikely me but I’m relatively happy with my rookies so far 2,200 with M.Crouch on the pine would be a good result from here but I believe it will be below par

TBone_9 · 18/05/2019 at 20:14

Already got three disgusting rookie scores on field. Decided to roll the dice on Answerth instead of taking Lockhart’s 53. With Drew out I had to bring in Stocker, decided to field Hayes instead of him. And Parker, I just can’t wait to trade him out as soon as the weekend is over. These are some of the most unpredictable rookies I’ve seen

Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 20:14

Heeney must be playing in the midfield where he belongs, thanks to JPK being out, and is scoring bigtime…. surely the dumbass coach could figure out a way to have them both in there permanently?
Put some other plebs in the fwd line but not Heeney Horse, you fkn Horse!

    Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 20:39

    You mean .. you big dick 😀

      Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 20:50

      I was doing a Tony Montana reference from Scarface lol.

    musicissport · 19/05/2019 at 19:45

    He might stay there now with Zak Jones looking like 4-6 weeks with a hammy.

Rick Grimes · 18/05/2019 at 20:33

Heeney sellers be hurting.

    Swans2012 · 18/05/2019 at 20:38

    True, but with a 150 odd break even, @ 450k or so, he does make a tasty thought for a (re)trade in lol.

Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 20:46

How many of us managed to field a full team?

    Russty_ · 18/05/2019 at 20:56

    I did Holty, but I don't think it helps me all that much this week.

      Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 21:20

      It’s tough. Have Stocker @ m8 and no one else on the bench. Hopefully all get up to play tomorrow
      I have Clark, Setterfield also. 😩

        silversovereign · 18/05/2019 at 22:27

        Yeah I did holty. Will cop Parker’s 30. Also have Setterfield on field.

          Derek · 18/05/2019 at 23:04

          going To have to take Parker’s 30 because Moore out.

    Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 21:47

    Me too, but I will have to take either Parker’s 30 or Answerth’s 26…

    Pranav · 18/05/2019 at 22:59

    Fielded a full team but copped Parker and Clark spud scores on field. Could of been worse with Hayes and answerth on the bench

    Daz · 19/05/2019 at 09:21

    Waited on the late mail and traded Moore on the golf course on my phone haha, was stressful cause I had to update my app too. Avoided fielding answeth or clark or similar, but have setterfield (feel like he will lift against his old team), stack, baker and durssma today.

    Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 11:41

    I have M Crouch, Coniglio, Ross, Drew and D Moore out. Happy days.

    Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 17:55

    I had a 22 bodies Holty only 19-20 of those had a pulse though. Tough week for most though so might be able to get a couple wins in leagues

Lazza · 18/05/2019 at 21:52

I know we aren’t supposed to discuss politics here… but two major positives out of this election are the end of Tony Abbott and Bill Shorten … c’est la vie..

COREYSC · 18/05/2019 at 22:17

Great effort from Heeney tonight super gutsy! Had his arm stomped on and picked up a head knock and stillness pumped out 110 with an injury affected match and less gametime very impressive

TOPHAWK1 · 18/05/2019 at 22:20

Who needs Hurn when you have Mundy! Both old farts tearing the place up.

    Derek · 18/05/2019 at 22:26

    Sigh. I started with both. But got rid of Mundy round 3. Can’t win em all.

    I didn’t see game, did Blakely play in the guts?

      TOPHAWK1 · 18/05/2019 at 22:34

      Blakely 88 SC and played on the ball in patches. He did well.

    Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 11:56

    Trying to find ways to get them both in. 5 outs this week has meant stalling original plans. Forced to field Parker and Corbett and an early upgrade of Coniglio in oder to field a complete tea (although could have fielded Hayes (31)). Could have been 6 if Constable hadn't been a late in. Worst no. of outs ever – almost like a bye round for me.

Notorious · 18/05/2019 at 22:29

Anyone have any news on Coniglio. Is he just being rested?

    Saritz · 18/05/2019 at 22:34

    It’s his finger… dislocation. He has played with it for the last 2 weeks. So I’m hoping he is back next week, but the talk is he misses another week unfortunately

    BrownlowBoy · 19/05/2019 at 09:00

    Leon Cameron mentioned 2-6 weeks.

Derek · 18/05/2019 at 22:37

Had the VC on Grundy, but to take his score would mean I had to take Hayns score.

Decided to put C on Merrett, happy with his score but hated he spent last 7 mins on bench

Need Durrsma to score 54 to level it

No idea · 18/05/2019 at 22:53

God I'm stupid. Put Fyfe on the bench to loophole Neale's points though forget to put the "E" on Fyfe, so I loose his points and play a man short .

    Holty01 · 18/05/2019 at 23:09

    Damn mate that sux. I know the feeling as I’ve done that a few times before

    Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 00:00

    Dude, you're obviously not obsessed enough with Supercoach…haha, otherwise you'd be checking your team and the Fanfooty scores every 5 minutes.
    You realise you can't play this game, and have a life right?…;)

      Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 00:13

      So true …

Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 00:04

I'm going to play Golf tomorrow, so well done to all the teams who will beat me this week, which will probably be almost all of them.
Congratulations in advance, because my team sucks.
Stupid starting choices and the wrong rookies on field early on, can really derail a season.
I'll keep battling, but it'll be hard not to run out of trades this year.

    Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 00:15

    I wish you’d done that when playing me ..

      Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 00:18

      Don't worry Larry, I'll do it in the finals if I manage to make it that far.

        neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 00:43

        got you in a couple Russty your team still looks strong FOUR

    Beezneez · 19/05/2019 at 11:46

    Lucky you're not wanting to play golf in Adelaide Russty. Its p…ssing down – that would really stuff your weekend.

      Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 17:54

      Mine and your team started very similar R1 russty and I’m not doing that well myself! I think I went a little too far toward midprice madness and it’s biting me in the a$$. I’m ranked 15k so not a disgrace but the weeks ahead look grim. Off to the bank tomorrow to apply for an interest free loan to get from rob too grundy ASAP. We just have to keep fighting mate I’m just thinking about the community leagues I don’t want to let everyone down.

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 09:16

Looking around some of my leagues, I think there will be some big scores this week. The ones who have avoided all the carnage of outs will be 2400+ with some plenty more.
I’ve had to field Clark, Setterfield and Stocker with my outs of Crouch, Moore, Drew, Atkins. I thought I was hard done by this week but it seems this has been nothing compared to what others have endured this week. To those people I feel for you.
Everyone keep your heads up and let’s hope Sunday brings us some luck.

    TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 10:20

    Hi Holty. It is a really tough round for many coaches this round. I am juggling with Cogs and M Crouch on the bench. I am sticking fat and NOT trading them out. It will give me some pain scoring wise, but it is worth it. Both Cogs and M Crouch will be back next week. Then Danger takes one of their seats. Its that kind of season. You simply cannot trade out premos if they miss for the one week. I should still get a decent score. Only had Clark on the field for his 33. All the other spuds like Parker, Answerth, etc were all on the bench. One massive trade today. Its time to farewell Willem Drew for……..Watch this space!! Good luck today mate.

      Derek · 19/05/2019 at 10:31

      TH…. is it Toby?

        TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 11:04

        Nah Derek. Not touching that prick with a 20 foot barge pole.

          No idea · 19/05/2019 at 11:20

          Wish I hadn't. Brought him in on his return against the normal "no dickhead" rule and have regretted it every moment since

          Derek · 19/05/2019 at 11:39

          I need to trade out Drew today as well. Stuffed up yesterday and was going to trade Libba to Boak, missed the cut off.

          Can’t go from Drew to Boak.

          Been thinking about this move for while and I think I’ll pull the trigger. We might even be thinking the same trade.

            TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 12:12

            Maybe mate! Drew is on his way out. Just about to pull the trade lever.

              Derek · 19/05/2019 at 12:21

              Does he play for the hawks?

                TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 13:08

                He plays for GWS. His name is Josh Kelly. Heard of him? LOL Out Drew, in J Kelly.

                  TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 13:08

                  Whacked the C on him too. Why not? Rocky VC.

                    Derek · 19/05/2019 at 13:32

                    GWS draw is delicious

    Derek · 19/05/2019 at 10:34

    There are going to be some wild fluctuations

    I’m against someone who is projected to get 2547. But most others are looking at 2100ish

    I might limp past 2250

    Meph · 19/05/2019 at 11:16

    I'm on for 2400 while holding Crouch. Just one of those crazy weeks I have the right amount of cover and all my premos are scoring well.

    Saritz · 19/05/2019 at 14:23

    I have wild fluctuations is projected scores in my leagues too. It will be interesting to see what par is. I have Moore, Cogs, and Crouch on the bench but should still crack 2300+. So teams without these names could go big

Lekdog · 19/05/2019 at 10:26

Blues will win today folks, I feel it in me waters

    TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 11:03

    Be a big scalp if the bluebaggers can pull it off Lek! GWS will be snarling after getting pumped by the Hawks last week.

    redherringfc · 19/05/2019 at 13:13

    That’ll be the trifecta:

    1. Morrison in the election
    2. Netherlands in Eurovision (who saw that coming? so my wife says)
    3. Carlton over GWS.

    Saritz · 19/05/2019 at 14:29

    So I should be putting my rent money on it? They are at $6 for the win. I already know what Im going to buy with my winnings. Thanks Lek!!!

TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 10:46

Good morning community!

TH has a message from the West this morning. The sound of a massive horn could be heard from Fremantle harbour at 6 AM. It was the sound of of the super tanker called "Mundy" setting sail for the open seas. All aboard!!! Hehehehe

I traded in David Mundy two weeks ago ahead of Clayton Oliver who decided to pump a 175 that week of course. I thought Id made a mistake of massive proportions. But what a long time a couple of weeks is in footy. Last night Mundy pumps a magestic 141 SC in my forward line after 115 SC in the round I missed Oliver. Not complaining now!! I reckon Mundy is now a must have alongside Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, and Danger up forward. (despite getting injured) Mundy despite his age is in career best form and deserves this little write up from TH this morning.

Despite Mundy's heroics, I am grappling with carnage again this week with Cogs and M Crouch plonked on the bench. Have to wear a 33 SC from Clark on the field, but beside that, no real turds. (Touch wood) Hoping to escape with 2350 this week. Will be stoked if I can get there. How is everyone else travelling? Cheers community. TH

    Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 10:56

    First time I’ve really watched Mundy last night and man he looks good. Incredible he is scoring what he is with his TOG. He will be expensive but I’ll be making a big effort to get him in around the bye rounds.

TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 10:49

    Derek · 19/05/2019 at 11:04

    Mundy never left my preseason team.

    But after round two’s 35pt effort from 59% TOG he was about to plummet in price, I moved him out and got Sloane.

    Next week he is on 32 at half time from 60% TOG and then Fyfe goes down…. Mundy finishes on 109 and continues to pump out big scores even when Fyfe came back.

    I did get him in my draft team.

    How does he go with Blakely back. As a Mundy owner I’d be worried about his TOG falling. It was 69% yesterday.

      TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 11:14

      Fair point Derek. Blakely came back very well last night after his long lay off. Nonetheless, Mundy was everywhere again last night and to get 141 after spending only 70% of the time on ground, it tells me he is in the form of his life. Right now I am happy to ride the Mundy train. Cheers.

        Meph · 19/05/2019 at 11:25

        I'm hoping for 2400. My projection has me at 2419. This with Crouch on the bench. So I'm very happy with that. What does everyone think a good score will be this week?

          DavidC · 19/05/2019 at 12:28

          Anything 2300+ will be a good score this week. Par maybe around 2250. There will be a few very high scores though for those few who dodged the carnage. I know someone projected to get over 2500.

    TBone_9 · 19/05/2019 at 11:54

    Love me some Mundy mate, if I trade out ROB this week I could afford to bring him in but with my upgrade money I have my eyes set on Lloyd to come into my side this week… although after having to field Parker this week I may have to fill my last fwd premo spot up instead. Looking at 2200 with Answerth, Hayes and Parker on field and Crouch on the pine, it’s gonna be a rough one for me mate

TelescopicCox · 19/05/2019 at 11:10

Trade Walsh or Cogs for Kelly?

Trading Walsh means I get Grundy’s VC but need to field Hayes.

    TelescopicCox · 19/05/2019 at 11:12

    Or go Walsh and Cogs to Rocky and Kelly. I’d leave.Drew and miss on stocker

      TBone_9 · 19/05/2019 at 11:56

      I like the second option mate, Rocky is still at a really good price and Kelly is a fantastic option as long as you know he will miss at least a couple games randomly for the rest of the season

        TelescopicCox · 19/05/2019 at 12:08

        I went the second. Hopefully it pays off!

          TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 12:10

          I like it. Then VC on Rocky and C on Kelly! Kaboom!

            TelescopicCox · 19/05/2019 at 12:13

            Cheers Tophawk. Currently taking Grundys VC through Drew. I’m tempted by Kelly though to beat it!

Pman · 19/05/2019 at 12:10

With all the outs this week I am forced to field one of Gibbons or Stocker from Carlton in midfield and given they both seem to be slow burners I'm not sure who to start with? Probably leaning towards Gibbons given he has previously pulled out a 100 but would appreciate any feedback (particularly from Carlton fans) as to who is the best option. Cheers…

    hedski · 19/05/2019 at 12:22

    Probably Gibbons Pman, unfortunately I'm fielding both and Hayes…..

      Pman · 19/05/2019 at 13:01

      Yeah I think so too but Geez it's a rubbish choice!

    Derek · 19/05/2019 at 12:26

    You just never know.

    I had to field 2 out of Answerth, Lockhart, Haynes, Constable, Stocker or Durrsma

    It’s just a lottery. I usually go with the most expensive for what it’s worth, takes guess work out.

Justin · 19/05/2019 at 12:54

Tossing a coin covered in dog poo!
Do I field Balta or Setterfield?
Either way I get some on my fingers.

    Pman · 19/05/2019 at 13:35

    Balta pumped out an 80 odd last week once The Nank went down and I expect him to get extra work today so I'm starting with Balta….not with any great confidence though!

    Saritz · 19/05/2019 at 14:17

    Personally, Setterfield. I think he is working into the year nicely. It was always going to be a slow burn for him with his extended time out of the game. I think he can get his hands on the ball enough today and outscore Balta. Good luck!

TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 14:13

Lift Westhoff!!! You useless MOFO!!😡😡

    Saritz · 19/05/2019 at 15:04

    Not looking good Hawk

      TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 16:41

      Yep. 62 lousy SC points. Useless twat that he is.

        Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 18:11

        Could trade him to Balta.. the basterd topped up…

          Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 18:11

          Tonned up

    hedski · 19/05/2019 at 16:01

    Traded him in last week Toppa, been very disappointing, hopefully can push him to f7 after the byes.
    Got you in guns'n'rookies this week, I think you'll cover me, will be bringing in old mate that you got in very soon. 👍

      TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 16:40

      Cheers Hedski. I am hoping to move Westhoff into the ruck for a while and turn ROB into cash for Fort to raise more cash. Then punt the Hoff later for Gawn. Bought in J Kelly today and slapped the C on his nose. Still not over mate. League match ups can change fast.

        hedski · 19/05/2019 at 18:06

        I'll be turning ROB into Boak and swinging Bines back to r3.
        Yeah got Kelly in just before the bounce.

Rick Grimes · 19/05/2019 at 15:00

Frampton comes alive.

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 15:06

Come on Duursma. Do something this 2nd half

    Saritz · 19/05/2019 at 15:10

    He started so well. I thought he might crack 3 figures. Just stopped

LeDoctor · 19/05/2019 at 15:53

On track for 2265 with Cogs and Crouch on the bench, overall not too bad but Hayes (31), Brayshaw (78) and M. Robinson (80, somewhat injured) cost me my H2H. Will be happy if I can crack 2250 with those 2 outs, been a horror few weeks.

Ja191 · 19/05/2019 at 15:58

When you thought Collins could beat a 33… sigh

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 17:05

I got all my chores done early today so I could sit down with a beer in hand to watch my beloved Blues. 20min into the first and I’ve turned it off. Don’t know why I bother.

BrownlowBoy · 19/05/2019 at 17:06

It's good to have you back Lachie Whitfield xx

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 17:35

Fielding Setterfield over Corbett this week isn’t looking great at present. 😢

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 17:50

well that’s my round gone. Too much carnage this week and was unable to recover. Williams gone in 2nd quarter with a hammy. 😫

    Finnius · 19/05/2019 at 17:55

    Is he guaranteed out?

      Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 17:58

      Red Cross against his name in fanfooty. Normally means game over

      Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 17:58

      Yeah I’m cooked now SC can be such a cruel game. Brayshaw survives another week by the looks

      Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 18:14

      He has twinge in the hammy.. could be a week or two …probably 2 weeks given GWS being over cautious on injuries

Nuggety · 19/05/2019 at 18:06

If you'd told me Stocker would have more possessions than Cripps at half time I would've been stoked to have brought him in. But…still can't be sure..

Swans2012 · 19/05/2019 at 18:12

14 giants 49 and above at half time 😳

hayden · 19/05/2019 at 18:19

setterfield 11 touches 12 SC points… what the hell is he doing with it

TommyC99 · 19/05/2019 at 18:20

Williams getting injured after a big first half sums my weekend up. Could never produce a big score when you have 2 scores in the 30s from parker and hayes. .Mediocrity from Constable, Pet, duursma and scrim didnt help but thats just rookies for ya. Hopefully Crouch is back next week, and Danger and Williams are given the all clear.

Brn · 19/05/2019 at 18:50

Try to match my bad week:

Coniglio and M Crouch out.

stack, daniels, scrimshaw, baker, duursma, constable and setterfield on field.

Fyfe Captain and Williams injured.

Went from a 'certain' 2400, to a likely 2150.

And… was ranked in top 200 🙁

    Rocksta_ · 19/05/2019 at 19:04

    Same for most Brn. Rookies have destroyed my score this week. Will probably just crack 2200.

    s c tragic · 19/05/2019 at 19:07

    I feel your pain it is something when the likes of Balta tons up and Cripps is getting shut down. I couldn't get in to take Grundy's vc score so ended up with Fyfe's C. Also had McCrouch scrim. Williams stocker and hayes on field.

      Rocksta_ · 19/05/2019 at 19:19

      I took Parker over Balta on field and couldn’t loop as Non player is Bines. 71 points right there, which ultimately cost me the league win.

    Daz · 19/05/2019 at 19:19

    1550 from 12 last night, looking at about 2200, lol thought i was heading for 2500 odd

      Brn · 19/05/2019 at 19:23

      Looks like around 2170. Hope i don't fall too much in ranks

    TOPHAWK1 · 19/05/2019 at 19:28

    Same here mate. Had a shocker today. Lucky to get to 2150.

    hedski · 19/05/2019 at 20:08

    Easy to match Brn.
    Cogs, Crouch and Drew out.
    Clark, Dursma, Gibbons, Stocker, Hayes, Parker, Petracelle, Angus, Hoff, Daniels, Williams on field.
    Grundy captain.
    1956….

KSinny · 19/05/2019 at 18:58

Well I'm stuffed this week, not even gonna make 2100. What do u guys reckon is par this week.

    Brn · 19/05/2019 at 19:01

    Unfortunately par is probably 2250

      DavidC · 20/05/2019 at 07:48

      Na, not that high. 2200 maybe.

dontblushbaby · 19/05/2019 at 18:58

I originally had the C on Whitfield but took Grundys 144 , all good , should end up with over 2400 anyway

    Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 19:31

    Huge mate. Fantastic work

      dontblushbaby · 19/05/2019 at 19:43

        gator59 · 19/05/2019 at 19:50

        2404 DBB a great effort mate

    neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 20:00

    great score DBB massive

KSinny · 19/05/2019 at 19:28

Hahaha only scored 2083 looks like I'm losing heaps of spots

    Dan · 19/05/2019 at 19:40

    Likewise, I feel I had a bit of a mare scoring 2073.
    Having Parker, Answerth, Hayes, & Setterfield on field, plus underperforming premos didn’t help.

Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 19:30

Wow. I was on 1903 with 5 to play and will be lucky to get 2200. How everyone else go?

    KSinny · 19/05/2019 at 19:34

    2083….. :(((

    neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 19:59

    2231 and like everyone lucky Balta a savior Reckon he can keep going very impressive NDD

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/05/2019 at 19:32

Giant win

That's better Jezza.

Bolt unlatched, will it be re secured?

AuroraBorealis?! · 19/05/2019 at 19:39

This week has been absolute hell, about to plummet in rankings. Special shoutout to: Parker, Hayes, Answerth, Cripps, Sicily, Duursma and Petrucelle for being particularly spuddy this week.

Just scraped in over 2000 at 2050, how did everyone else go?

    KSinny · 19/05/2019 at 19:46

    2083 with Answerth, Gibbons, Lockhart, Duursma, Petrucelle, Cripps and Matt Crouch missing.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 19/05/2019 at 19:55

      Ah yes, also had M.Crouch off this week

    Derek · 19/05/2019 at 19:49

    This morning I was looking so good, but then Sunday football happened.

    2152 was all I could scrap together.

      Browncow · 19/05/2019 at 19:51

      2140. The good, the bad and the ugly this week!

      COREYSC · 19/05/2019 at 19:58

      Agreed mate, projected 2300 then it all fell apart with all my Carlton players I had a feeling they’d flop but not so badly wound
      Up with 2173

    Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 20:03

    2198.
    Crouch, Cripps and Williams didn’t help
    Had Setterfield, Clark, Stocker and Baker on field

      Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 20:12

      2138 and still won 9 of my 10 leagues 3 being JR community leagues so i think the average will be 2100-2150?
      Crouch, cripps and williams hurt
      and had too field Larkey, Setters and clarke.

        Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 20:15

        2198 and lost 3 of 6 mav.

      Holty01 · 19/05/2019 at 20:13

      And missing Moore didn’t help either

        Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 20:27

        yeah looking back over scores more closely i think it'd be 2150-2200 with a few outliars.
        I think you just played the wrong teams on the wrong weekend holty haha
        I also had moore out. swang rozee forward and fielded clarke (33). yuck!

    hedski · 19/05/2019 at 20:12

    See my reply above to Brn. I'm not typing that shit again AB.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 19/05/2019 at 20:20

      Yeah looks like you've had a rough one hedski. It's been a case of absolute feast or famine this round

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/05/2019 at 20:19

    Was looking ok then the giants played the blues.

    Had a couple of blues but also had more giants. 😎

    Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 20:54

    Hi AB…guys, if I'd left the VC on Gawn and put Balta onfield instead of Parker I would've ended up with a half decent score, instead of 2064, shizenhauser, lost 8 out of 10 Leagues and plummeted in the rankings, gotta love this game lol
    Had Crouch and Moore out too….always next week.
    Congrats to all the coaches who scored well this week.

      neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 21:19

      great time for me to play you in 2 leagues Next week could be totally different Russty. Last year I scored 2565 and won Pieman's highest score ,then came out and scored 2k ,WITH THE SAME TEAM ,happens bud Wonder what happened to pieman? good luck next week NDD

        Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 21:23

        Well done mate your team's solid, maybe Pman is Pieman incognito?…maybe he got sick of all the drama last year?…hope it's not another reason like his health or something, his posts were always interesting and informative.
        He wouldn't have much to gripe about regarding Bucks this year though haha

          neil demons delight · 19/05/2019 at 21:51

          Pman could be The drama has died down a lot tho.Bringing in Whit this week and keeping my last 3 def plus balta for byes or later Balta and Hore are keepers for a while

            Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 21:55

            I left Balta off the field this week…big mistake and he's now become a money making machine….who would've thought that?…lol
            Yeah notice how there isn't any drama when those 2 stay away…hopefully they've found a better home for their outlet.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/05/2019 at 22:29

        struggling a bit this year
        pie had a down week like most with outs and rookie scores.

        NDD that is more like it from Jezza and he didn't kick a snag.
        Found one in finalyson.

        Jez could have done that last week when I played you

        Kelly was a nice trade in.

        Beezneez · 20/05/2019 at 10:49

        Hi NDD. You beat me by 6 in G'N'R. Thought I had you till Williams didn't return after halftime.

          neil demons delight · 20/05/2019 at 11:35

          sorry about that Beez Kept a close eye on it Lucky I guess but hey mate this is why we play this crazy game.Hope to see you in the finals NDD

    Disaster · 19/05/2019 at 21:24

    1963. Lowest score in memory. Disaster of a round and wasted 2 trades.

      Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 21:46

      Bounce back next week mate, rough week for a lot this week.

    JohnDJ59 · 19/05/2019 at 21:53

    2140 with a few injuries to deal with, only won two of my nine league games, lost another close one by three points and slid down the rankings to 33,000.

      Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 22:45

      Hey John, rankings don't matter much unless you're already in the top 1000 now, from here it should be all about winning your League games, and what you need to to do to achieve that I think.
      Like Clint said, "A man's got to know his limitations"…haha
      I'm happy to know my limitations, I'm obviously not a high ranking player, but when focusing on Leagues have had some good success in the past.

        JohnDJ59 · 19/05/2019 at 23:06

        I just looked to see how I was going and I am in the top eight in five of my nine leagues, so considering how I started I'm fairly happy with that. If I keep going next year and I am really thinking about giving it away, like a few other things, just for my sanity, I think I will have to cut right back on the number of leagues I'm in.

          Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 23:27

          If you feel like you have to do that mate then do it…but seriously, rank doesn't matter all that much unless you've somehow managed to start with the perfect team, and placed all the right rookies on field, after you've of course picked all the right rookies, honestly, a lot of it is luck early on, and then just riding that luck if you managed to do all the right things early on.
          Winning Leagues is very satisfying because it says that you were the best team out of 18 teams.
          That's something worth playing for.
          The best we can hope for apart from winning leagues is to improve from our previous year, but there's also a lot of luck involved in that too.

            Beezneez · 20/05/2019 at 10:56

            It's certainly about luck Russty. Often you can be beaten in your league game but your score can beat all or most of the other teams so it can be all about who you draw. Luck with injuries can play a huge part as well – look at this week. I had 6 outs and Williams didn't return after half time when sitting on 75. On to next week.

            JohnDJ59 · 20/05/2019 at 13:26

            I think I will give it away, I don't want to have anything to do with the Murdoch papers anymore, I canceled my foxtel a few months back and this will be the final cleansing from his right wing corporation.

    chilli · 19/05/2019 at 22:51

    2432 stoked with that – bit of bonus with drew not playing bringing baltas 101 in…make a bit up for lasts weeks carnage!

    Lazza · 19/05/2019 at 23:29

    2097… had to field 7 rookies – a big shout out to Duursma 56, Petrucelle 52, Wilkie 50, Stocker 45, Setterfield 29, Gibbons 28.. and De Boer’s bitch 66

      Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 23:35

      Yeah Lazz, I expected more out of Cripps, fancy a big strong bull like that letting some spud tag him out of the game, I have lost some respect now, but De boer is a tagger to be feared now I guess.

        Lazza · 20/05/2019 at 08:09

        I had him as Capt initially.. then switched to Kelly before the game … thank god for small mercies

        Beezneez · 20/05/2019 at 10:59

        De Boer has done it all year. Be wary of captaining a player coming up against him. Serial tagger.

          neil demons delight · 20/05/2019 at 11:40

          he has Clarry this week

          Russty_ · 21/05/2019 at 23:16

          That's for bloody sure Beez!

    Daz · 20/05/2019 at 11:21

    was a bloody Sunday, ended 2268, which I dropped 40 odd to 89th. Awell hopefully Mcrouch back this week so I don't have to cop a delightful setter-field score.

Hawks · 19/05/2019 at 19:43

2312 with Danger capt (off field early with ankle issues) & Zac Williams doing his hammy late in the 2nd Qtr (would have gone huge).

Happy with the score, but man what it could have been.

COREYSC · 19/05/2019 at 20:02

This week will be moving week for alot of supercoaches especially those with no injuries as for me I’ll dropping outside the top one thousand I believe

AuroraBorealis?! · 19/05/2019 at 20:21

Was hoping to bring Whitfield in in a few weeks, guess f*cking not now

    Maverick_ · 19/05/2019 at 20:24

    I'll still bring him in right away for williams you'd think he's gone for close to a month with a hamstring?
    especially with how conservative GWS are with injuries

      AuroraBorealis?! · 19/05/2019 at 20:44

      yeah good point actually Mav, i reckon that'll be the most popular trade of the week

      BrownlowBoy · 19/05/2019 at 20:48

      Supposedly only hamstring tightness, and with the score like it was there was no need for him to play.

    Iamme · 19/05/2019 at 20:49

    Yeah Aurora, i gonna bring him in as soon as SC is open for business, he would of dropped some dollars this week…..despite going massive. If you wait and he keeps up his 2019 form he will be upping in price in no time. Straight swap for Williams for me.

      neil demons delight · 20/05/2019 at 11:42

      Reckon I beat you to bring him in iamme An absolute must have

Iamme · 19/05/2019 at 20:22

2099. I didn't see the game but looks like Cripps can be tagged after all…..Of the 6 rookies on field only Hore topped 65.

    dontblushbaby · 19/05/2019 at 21:38

    Tagged by De Boer who also scored 90 SC points

Great fact hunt · 19/05/2019 at 21:18

Anyone know about cogs injury. Someone told me he is out for 10 weeks with a finger injury.

    dontblushbaby · 19/05/2019 at 21:36

    Yes, finger ,he did it in round 6 but it got worse, not sure about the 10 weeks though ?

Trades · 19/05/2019 at 21:44

My team is in such disarray… no rookies making money, no rookies to bring in, under-performing “premos”. Injuries, late outs, wasted trades. This is the most challenging season in a while for me.
I can’t see my team getting to full premo. I just won’t have enough trades or the money.

    Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 21:52

    Hey trades, might be a good time to just walk away for awhile, just make sure you don't have any outs in the coming weeks but just don't trade if you can help it.
    Depends on whether you play for rank or Leagues though…if it's rank you always feel like you need to keep up with the Joneses, if it's Leagues you can come back into the top 8 by saving trades and having them near the end when others will have run out by trading too aggressively early on.
    Sometimes you just need to be patient.

      Trades · 19/05/2019 at 22:16

      Always good advice Russty, cheers mate

        Russty_ · 19/05/2019 at 22:38

        I try mate but I'm probably not qualified to be giving advice, sometimes just taking a break and not trading your ass off can pay dividends by just conserving trades. Others in your leagues won't and will run low, or out at the business end, I need to do the same, there's only so many weeks in a row where we can try to fix our teams until we're stuffed.
        Just gotta ease off sometimes, even if it means losing 3 or 4 League games in a row.
        Good luck mate.

Big G · 19/05/2019 at 21:57

Is Rocky in trouble? Any potential bubble boys this week?

Tommo09 · 19/05/2019 at 23:11

I’ve got B.Smith at D4 Walsh at M7 and Moore are f4. I think I’m in trouble. Just not enough cash generation and with 19 trades left I’m getting low

    Trades · 19/05/2019 at 23:20

    Same situation
