THEY’RE HERE!

It’s not just us SuperCoaches freaking out about this three-week period. Brendon Bolton has joined Brad Scott on the coaching scrap heap for 2019. Lek was down at Princes Park immediately for crisis talks with the powers of the club. He shared his presentation for the vacant coaching position with the JR Crew in the group chat Tuesday morning and despite wanting to enforce mandatory sleeve’s on match day and every player must have luscious 70’s pornstar mo’s before being considered for selection the Blues decided not to be pioneers in coaching for 2020. Weak. 

Coaching genius!

Back to the footy. With most being able to field a full 22 players this week it’s an opportunity to be aggressive with your trading. Don’t @ me if I’m wrong but guys like Bewley and Gardner have pretty strong job security I reckon. A sneaky downgrade or two to build cash now could allow for a triple upgrade next week.

Along with his usual captain’s article, the byes call for a voice of reason and Damo was that voice of reason on the podcast this week. Barron has crammed more information than you can poke a rookie sized stick at in Around the Grounds. Matty has given a change up to the cheat sheet this week, looking at your best round 14 options if you find you need to make your team a bit more even. 

The News

Before I get into the teams, a few quick bye round FAQ’s.

  • Your best scoring on field 18 players make up your score. So if, for example, you have all 6 forwards available and a F7 emergency, that F7 won’t count towards your score (unless one of those forward is a late out).
  • You can use players that are on their bye as captains loopholes as they will be locked out at the end of the round.
  • You will have three trades per week that will not rollover. For example, if you only use two in round 12 you will not have four the next week.

Okay, here we go. Richmond are decimated on the injury front. Brendon Ellis and David Astbury join an already lengthy injury list. Their pain is our gain however, with Patrick Naish (DEF – 123.9k) making his debut. Shai Bolton has been dropped. Geelong have recalled Gary Ablett after his week off after a busy fortnight of elbowing people.

Carlton have made four changes for David Teague’s first match at the helm. Kade Simpson and Dale Thomas are amongst the ins. Liam Stocker is one of the outs. At Brisbane I have no idea who Jacob Allison is but he replaces Ben Keays. Some pretty uninspiring changes in what will probably be an uninspiring game between Gold Coast and North Melbourne. A few have Jack Bowes as a POD (why?), he will miss this week with injury. Let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief for Rory Sloane, who is right to go this week. Matt Crouch has also been named and he should just not move between now and game day in case he injures himself. Bryce Gibbs has again been omitted. GWS actually doing what they said they would is both amazing and suspicious, Zac Williams is in for the injured Lachie Whitfield.   

Only one Sunday game makes me sad. Darcy Cameron (RUC – 135.7k), Ryley Stoddart (FWD – 136.8k), and James Rose (FWD – 165k) come into the squad for Sydney, along with James Rowbottom. He is not on the bubble but still affordable at 131k. As expected, Shannon Hurn will miss for West Coast, Josh Rotham (DEF – 123.9k) is in the squad and averages 77 from his two games earlier in the year. A word of caution however, Jackson Nelson has also been named. Jarrod Cameron (MID/FWD – 117.3k) could make his debut. 

On Monday’s celebration for Queen Lizzie’s big day that isn’t her actual real birthday. Pre-season buzz boy Isaac Quaynor (DEF – 153.3k) is in the squad for Collingwood. Dayne Beams is again out with injury. Marty Hore has been named on field for the Dees in positive signs. Steven May and Jake Lever will play their first game together for the club. 

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

For 87,000 of us, finding a replacement for Lachie Whitfield is at the top of the ‘to-do’ list this week. You might be able to get away with holding him this week and trading him to Luke Ryan (523k) or James Sicily (491k) once they’ve come off their byes. If you’re keen to move him on this week and keep your bye structures in place then a trade to Rory Laird is probably your safest bet. At 504k, he’s not the Laird of 2018 that was smashing out hundreds for fun, that said, he hasn’t dropped below 84 so far this year.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Huge game tonight between the Tigers and the Cats at the G. Richmond was embarrassed last week week against the Roos at Marvel, but if you’ve listened to 5 minutes of Channel 7 commentary during a Richmond game this year you’ll know how good their recent record is on the hallowed turf.

There’s a clear winner in the world of fantasy however, with Geelong being 5th in total points this year and 15th in total conceded, compared to Richmond’s 15th in total points scored and 3rd in total conceded. Keep that in mind when you build your lineups. 

RUC

If you want to fit in the Geelong midfield studs tonight you’re probably not looking too hard at Rhys Stanley (11.3k). Ivan Soldo (8.4k) has had 10 tackles in his two games but won’t give you much in terms of possessions. Noah Balta (7.8k) has played at his best at the MCG, his last two there are 82 and 79. However, Draftstars have changed him to a ruck only which lessens his appeal somewhat. Richmond flat out suck against tall marking targets and with David Astbury out there’s no obvious matchup for Esava Ratugolea (5.9k).

DEF

This is a hard position to pick tonight as both sides are bottom 3 in conceding points to the opposition number 1 defender over the past month. However, we’ve still got some studs on offer. Bachar Houli (14.5k) is averaging a ridiculous 132 over his past 3. Tallying 38, 37, and 35 touches in those games. Mitch Duncan (MID / 15.4k) has defender status and averages a lazy 119 over his past 6. If you’re paying up, I prefer Houli. Tom Stewart (13.3k) is a safe floor of 80 but there isn’t any value in him. Sydney Stack (10.1k) is at an awkward price but looks very composed the ball in his hands.

If you wanted to avoid the studs all together then Jordan Clark (8.2k) is your first value pick. That 27 two weeks ago has kept his price down despite games of 77, 84, and 95 in the past month. Patrick Naish (5k) debuts tonight at minimum price. He has averaged 26 disposals (19 kicks) and 4 marks in 8 VFL games this season.    

FWD

As mentioned in the rucks, tall forwards = Richmond’s kryptonite. Tom Hawkins (11.2k) has kicked 16 goals in his past 4 games without really lighting things up in the Draftstars column. I’m predicting a physically hard game tonight; in games where Liam Baker (9.9k) records at least 5 tackles he has scored 82, 96, 112, and 90. Tom Atkins (7.3k) is in the same boat. The ‘G has been a happy hunting ground for Gary Ablett (12.9k), who returns tonight. Forward eligible midfielders Tim Kelly (14.7k) and Patrick Dangerfield (14.5k) are also in play. Dusty (MID / 13.3k) will need to be switched on if the Tigers have any chance for this one. 

MID

If you couldn’t stuff Danger, Kelly, or Dusty up forward chuck them in here. Jack Graham (9.8k) returns tonight and he’s the only member of the under 10k club that I’m interested in. He’ll be under instructions to tackle anything that moves so I like his floor. Trent Cotchin (10.7k) would’ve been better for the run last week but it’s hard to trust him yet. Cam Guthrie (10.9k) is another member of the ‘if he tackles, he’ll score well’ brigade and has been named on the ball tonight. Good luck!

For my last midi field spot should I Trade in josh kelly now at probs peak price, or get Cunnington and have the 100k spare?

    SC_Kev7 · 07/06/2019 at 11:25

    To complete your mids you need JK mate. Superstar!

    GreendaleFC · 07/06/2019 at 13:43

    Depends how much cash you have and if your forwards/backs/rucks need much improvement. If you are mostly premium already bring in Kelly, otherwise I'd get Cunners and look to get full premo a little earlier.

      Rick Grimes · 07/06/2019 at 15:45

      Kelly is feckin expensive. Yes he's worth it but by golly it's a big outlay.

Swoosh111 · 07/06/2019 at 11:32

I have Goldy, Mummy and O'Brien as my ruck trio. All three share the same byes and even play against each other..

Mummy is likely to drop $ bigtime so I am wondering whether to park O'Brien on the field and trade out Mummy for the $ to be used on Grundy/Gawn in round 14. (no point this round as they are opposing each other).

Thoughts from the community would be hugely welcomed

    SC_Kev7 · 07/06/2019 at 13:32

    Like it. You'll need a plan to get those guys in, especially if ROB doesn't hold his spot when Sauce is available again

Swoosh111 · 07/06/2019 at 11:40

The lack of decent forward/mid downgrade options this week is leading to consider Z.Clarke (bye) as a downgrade.

Does anyone have advice for or against this or any better options for a downgrade?

Dash · 07/06/2019 at 11:59

18 Trades – 18K
Laird, Sicily, Whitfield, Duursma, Clark, Answerth, (Burgess, Marsh)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Heeney, Atkins, (O Baker, Scott, Setterfield)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Boak, T Kelly, Dunkley, Danger, J Cameron, Balta (Parker, Corbett)

Whitfield > Houli or Lloyd?
Should I trade another rookie in? Options? or Just use the 1 trade this week and hold.

    SC_Kev7 · 07/06/2019 at 13:35

    Figure out who suits you better. If not bothering with byes then go Lloyd

    Dash · 07/06/2019 at 17:48

    Anyone else got some trade advice on my team?

      Wedge · 07/06/2019 at 19:31

      Don't do any trades because it's first week of byes.

MidPricer · 07/06/2019 at 12:28

Whitfield to J Kelly via Duursma swing. Kelly at top price but with the Whitfield injury I have the cash to get him…may not in the future… every cloud has a silver lining… it just hurts when you got Whitfield in last week.

TommyC99 · 07/06/2019 at 12:37

I'm having to trade Whtfield this week with an eye towards next week. Who i bring in has to play this week as i have 17 currently.
How many of these blokes do you reckon will play next week? Obviously a week is a long time in footy but how many of these that play will determine whether i bring in Lloyd or Cunnington. (much prefer Lloyd)

Burgess, Stocker, Young

So i currently have 13 who SHOULD play next week (doesn't include the 3 above). Next week im looking at bringing in Sicily, Gardner and Bont so i'd only need 2 of those 3 rookies above to play and i should get to 18. Stocker was playing well so you'd think hes straight back. I haven't been watcing Burgess play but hes survived 2 weeks in a row so he might play, but i really can't see Young holding his spot.

Thoughts guys? Cunnington does look the goods but my last 3 spots on targetting Bont, Treloar and one of Neale/Jkelly, so Cunnington throws a spanner in the works of that plan, but at the same time he is convenient for the byes.

TommyC99 · 07/06/2019 at 13:26

So im trading whitfield out with an eye to next week as well. At this stage i have 17 this week and 13 guaranteed starters next week. What are you thoughts on the likelyhood of these guys playing?

Burgess, Stocker, Young

Next week im looking at bringing in Sicily, Bont and Gardner which takes the total to 16 before those rookies. Would you bring in Cunnington for bye structure, but he ruins my end team plans (had treloar, Bont and Neale taking my last 3 spots) or just go for who i need which is Lloyd and bank on 2 of the above rookies to get picked next week?

KSinny · 07/06/2019 at 14:32

Who should I trade Whitfield to? Can't use dpp so has to be a defender. If i get someone who has there bye this week I'll only have 17 playing if Sloane is a late out and if I trade someone in with there bye next week I'll be down a few men. Thinking Houli atm. Thought?

    Rick Grimes · 07/06/2019 at 15:43

    He's on fire. Comes with a burn warning, but looks a different proposition tho s year. Good trade.

    hedski · 07/06/2019 at 17:49

    I'm 95% locked on Tommy Stewart and stuff next week Skinny.

Stupid Coach · 07/06/2019 at 14:47

Love your work Kev. My main dilemma is whether to trade out Whitefield and whether to use two or three trades. Playing for league wins (currently 12th, 7th, 3rd). Bye rounds currently looking like this – 17, 18 and 18.

Option 1: Lockhart to Baker (Melb) and Rozee to Cameron or Zeibel. Gives me 19 on the field and leaves me with 16 trades.

Option 2: Lockhart to Baker (Melb), Rozee to Cameron or Zeibel and Whitfield to Lloyd or Houli. Gives me 20 on the field and leaves me with 15 trades.

Leaning towards Option 1 to preserve trades but Option 2 is awfully tempting.

Thoughts?

    Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 15:16

    I like option 2 yolo!

      Stupid Coach · 07/06/2019 at 15:34

      Thanks Lekdog. I am now thinking of keeping Whitfield until his Round 14 bye and bring Lloyd in after his Round 13 bye and saving a trade or should I just bring in Houli.

        Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 15:50

        If you think you can win with 17 then I would hold off and save the trade

          Stupid Coach · 07/06/2019 at 16:11

          I was still thinking of making two trades (just not the third) which would give me 19 on the field.

            Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 16:20

            Beautiful

SteamHam1 · 07/06/2019 at 14:51

Would it be worth trading Whitfield to Lloyd?

    Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 16:20

    I don't hate it but you know you're gonna miss Lloyd for at least one of the next couple of games 🙂

    Libba · 07/06/2019 at 17:17

    If you can field 18 players in round 13, I'd make the trade

Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 15:15

Can't believe the Blues won't move into the 21st century and enforce mandatory moustaches…madness.

    Libba · 07/06/2019 at 17:16

    Lek, Don't forget about introducing the long sleeves for every player

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 17:37

    Baaum chicka wow wowww could be the new Blues Song?…lol

    Swoosh111 · 07/06/2019 at 18:40

    Hasn't worked for Joe Daniher, nor Tex nor Hibberd.
    I'd leave well enough alone.

Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 15:42

I know this is probably a stretch to ask, but up to how long could Stocker be out for with his foot injury? No updated injury reports for me to refer to…

    Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 16:20

    Can't find anything either, likely comes back after the bye

Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 15:50

Also thoughts on these DG trades for this week:

Scott – Bewley
Parker – Gardner

Will take me down to 18 trades and I'll have $225,500 to turn a Rd 13 bye player easily into a Rd 12 premo next week (like Hore for instance).

Also my team as it currently stands (will just be able to field 18 when it originally was going to be 20 before Hurn and Stocker went out unfortunately):

D: Hurn*, Laird, Smith, Williams, Hore, Clark (Duursma*, Young)
M: Neale, Fyfe*, Cripps, Oliver, M.Crouch, Walsh, Gibbons, Answerth, (Macrae*, Stocker*, Scott*)
R: Grundy, Gawn
F: Dangerfield, Kelly, Heeney, Petruccelle, Dunkley*, Boak* (Parker*, Young*)

    Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 15:51

    * – either injured, not selected to play, or has the bye this round, just for everyone's reference.

Shake_n_bake · 07/06/2019 at 15:55

Yeo out

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 16:52

    Wow they're dropping like flies lately.

    Lazza · 07/06/2019 at 17:34

    makes me feel a lot better Shake.. used one of those corrective trades in R3 to cast him out …. was really kicking myself .. till now … 🙂

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/06/2019 at 18:43

    Nearly brought him in ladt week…

    Phew

      Swans2012 · 07/06/2019 at 19:28

      I did 😬

        Swans2012 · 07/06/2019 at 19:30

        Are we sure he’s out?

Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 16:08

Oh also, would anyone be tempted by Rotham should he get his 3rd game this week, since he's still on the bubble? Just interested to know in general.

    Lekdog · 07/06/2019 at 16:21

    Tempted yes, despite knowing it's a terrible idea to pick him

Libba · 07/06/2019 at 17:01

Rotham is in and could go out after the bye for Hurn… I'm hoping he stays in

John · 07/06/2019 at 17:06

If you had to trade in one, who would you trade in out of Gardner, Bewley or Rotham (if he's named)?

    Libba · 07/06/2019 at 17:15

    They all have shaky job security… Tread with caution

      John · 07/06/2019 at 17:24

      Is it worth trading in Rotham just for that bit of cash he'll gain?

        Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 18:43

        Could be a donut for the rest of the season after this week.

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 17:28

    If I had to it'd be Gardner, he started really well in his first game but didn't get many points for what he did.
    Looks a good player though and would've scored better if he'd just held onto a few more marks.

    Troy · 07/06/2019 at 18:09

    Aish?

James · 07/06/2019 at 17:06

VC Danger or Kelly (Kelly is a unque for me) ?

    Libba · 07/06/2019 at 17:15

    If you want to play it safe id go danger, but if you want to risk it go t.kelly… if the VC fails you can always hope you put the right captaincy

Joey · 07/06/2019 at 17:20

Rotham finally named but is He only going to cover hurn the 1 week then dropped though? I have Rozee with a BE of 99 to trade and to have 20 onfield

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 17:24

    Possibly, the other 2 games he played were only to cover for outs.

The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 17:29

Think I'm settled on Whitfield, Libba and Balta OUT Heater, Hawkins and Gardner IN
Hoping Heater will get a bump from Whitfield being out.
Leaves me 222K for further upgrades next week.

    Derek · 07/06/2019 at 17:44

    heater is going along ok. better choice than Rich

      The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 18:29

      GWS have a great run home too Derek, I figure he'll av at least 90 but could push that up toward 100 if I'm lucky.

    hedski · 07/06/2019 at 17:58

    Nice Ranger.
    I am thinking Whitfield, Lockhart and Parker out for Stewart, Tomahawk in.
    The third in (rookie) I'm not sure whether to go a $102k mid/fwd link/looper or just get Bewley.
    I think it might be smarter to leave Bewley to next week when he is hopefully named or I could end up with another B.Scott useless non DPP pleb on my bench.
    Thoughts? Go Cats.

      The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 18:14

      Yeah Bewley is on the list for next week for me.
      I figure even if Gardner spuds up (and the way my season has gone so far it's pretty much guaranteed) I can at least swing him about as an F/D 8.

        hedski · 07/06/2019 at 18:20

        Against my better judgement I got Gardener in last week.
        I really need to open a mid/fwd link so thinking a cheap Patsy could be the go.

          The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 18:22

          Mosquito might get a gig at some point.

            hedski · 07/06/2019 at 18:42

            Gonna need all the cash I can get to make the upgrades so a $102k might be better.
            Season is shot so I might as well go all out

              The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 18:50

              Leks boy Matthew Owies then, there were rumours he might play.
              Or look at the fixture and pick one that has a load of late games.

              Already thinking about my 2020 picks, that's how bad my season is!

                hedski · 07/06/2019 at 19:04

                Riach from the Eagles looks the goods.

                  The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 19:10

                  Rumours that Hately might be a late in for Toby Greene.

                    hedski · 07/06/2019 at 19:36

                    Stuff it I'm locked and loaded

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/06/2019 at 18:55

        I gonna see how naish goes tonight.
        If goes ok gonna trade in Gardner in def.
        Then next week drew to naish via dpp to get cash for premo splurge.
        If naish spuds will look at Roth.

I just saw on Twitter that Toby Greene is in doubt. If Hately were to be a late in would you bring him into your side? Or is his j/s too risky?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/06/2019 at 18:49

    Reckon jump on if a late in if u want a cash injection

    When will we know

    Longy · 08/06/2019 at 12:37

    I will be getting him in if he plays. The money he makes by only playing one game will far outweigh the money some of these other spud rookies are going to make for the rest of the season.

Joey · 07/06/2019 at 18:07

Bailey Scott to rotham or Gardner?

I’ve had a gutful from bailey and hasn’t even looked good in the 2s so Is it a good move to move him on with having made 50thousand and low BE but low chance of playing

    Blue · 07/06/2019 at 18:23

    how would you do the trades?

      Joey · 07/06/2019 at 18:41

      By DPP?
      Bailey out swing answerth in to the middle and grab Gardner or rotham

Troy · 07/06/2019 at 18:08

Cunnington or Gaff for M8? I preffered Cunners until i saw his run home and lack of games at Marvel?

    NoLanguage96 · 08/06/2019 at 00:28

    Doesn't matter where he plays mate Cunners is a machine

    Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 12:45

    I went Cunnington, but he also suited my bye structure better than Gaff. Good POD, low floor and has shown ceiling. Also plays Gold Coast today!

      hedski · 08/06/2019 at 12:56

      I noticed you got him in Fin, I play you twice this week.
      Good luck mate 👍

TelescopicCox · 07/06/2019 at 18:15

Who would you bring in to avoid a donut?

Rotham, Naish or hope for Hately

Nathan · 07/06/2019 at 18:17

I've been stuck with Ben McCay from North all season. Should I ditch him this week, while I've got a few spare trades or hold on to him for the rest of the year. Was thinking of going to Rotham. I'm on 19 trades

Good trades or planning to far ahead (20 trades left)

    Dan · 07/06/2019 at 19:21

    They sound like good trades to me. Dunkley and Fyfe seem like must have’s.

    The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 19:24

    Good trades Stacky

Dash · 07/06/2019 at 18:56

Whitfield to Lloyd would be great except for his bye.
Houli tempting, Z Williams, H Shaw, K Simpson?

    KSinny · 07/06/2019 at 18:59

    I'm going Houli instead of Lloyd for the same reason

Oliver · 07/06/2019 at 19:13

Does anyone remember what time the Monday teams are usually finalized?

    hedski · 07/06/2019 at 19:37

    I'd say 5pm Saturday Ollie.

Gainsy · 07/06/2019 at 19:24

Whitfield, menegola, stocker out.
Simpson, j.cameron, t.lynch in.
….because… why not

TommyC99 · 07/06/2019 at 19:25

Hayes to Rotham (gives me 19)

Or

Hayes To bewley (will still have 18)

    The Ranger · 07/06/2019 at 19:37

    Bewley for mine Tommy.

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 20:21

Jeez this Naish guy's looking all right, wonder if it's just a first game adrenaline score.

    JohnDJ59 · 07/06/2019 at 20:45

    I might be going Clark to Naish next week.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/06/2019 at 20:49

    Been smashing it in the vfl

Ja191 · 07/06/2019 at 20:21

had to go early on naish, keep going son

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 20:21

    Might work out very nicely for you JA

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/06/2019 at 20:46

Geez the hairy cat is a rippa!

    hedski · 07/06/2019 at 21:12

    Little bloody gun Trig, love him.
    Cats starting to put the foot down after a crap first QTR.

      Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:14

      Tipped Cats by 25, maybe should've made it 45?

        hedski · 07/06/2019 at 21:20

        I went 27 👍

          Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:48

          Dammit should've made it 75 hahahahha

            hedski · 07/06/2019 at 22:00

            125?

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:13

    Bet you felt like rage trading him after his last few weeks Trig…looking better this week 🙂

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/06/2019 at 20:55

Really gonna need you to lift houli

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 22:33

    Not bad in the end AB…salvaged a score after a 34 point first half.

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:00

Balta's back to being…Balta, Houli dooly starting to get going, I'd be worried if I brought him in this week though.

hedski · 07/06/2019 at 21:13

Jeez Clark might not even make his be, what is it around 16?

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:16

    13 Hed…has to have a better second half surely.

      hedski · 07/06/2019 at 21:21

      Hopefully trade him to Siciflog nek week

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:19

Looks like it'll be a contest out of who'll get the less shit score between Balta and Burgess in my team this week.
I have all the gun rookies in my team.

Daniel · 07/06/2019 at 21:27

Thoughts on trading Whitfield out for Daniel Rich, seems to score well in Lions wins and has a decent fixture for the rest of the year, would mean my final defence upgrade will be either hurn or whitfield when he returns, or do I hold whitfield? Already have Lloyd/Laird/Williams/Sicily and B.Smith

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 21:53

    I'd prefer Andrews over Rich, more of a pod and kills it when he gets into form.

    Swans2012 · 07/06/2019 at 22:14

    I’m keen on rich

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/06/2019 at 21:55

I thought Geelong winning with a margin of 1-39 at $2 was pretty good odds, apparently not? The cats are on a rampage

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 22:04

In the words of that psychotic mental case, Donald Trump…Balta, you're fired.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 09:31

    And now get the hell out of my office!!!

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 22:18

That'll do Danger-pig…that'll do. 🙂

    Swans2012 · 07/06/2019 at 22:21

    Was thinking the same, nice to lock the Vc away early

      Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 22:25

      Hell yeah Swanny…let the other guys sweat on their results.

        Derek · 07/06/2019 at 22:45

        Locked in. Grundy and Gawn head 2 head would have made me nervous. Danger did good.

          Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 23:06

          Dangerpower Derek!…nice choice.

    NoLanguage96 · 08/06/2019 at 00:29

    Danger VC too. Finally pick one on a Friday!

      Rick Grimes · 08/06/2019 at 06:57

      Samewise. I suspect pretty much all Danger owners have VCd him.

        Daz · 08/06/2019 at 08:07

        Looking at a lot of head to heads I see Neale/Cripps into Grundy

        NoLanguage96 · 08/06/2019 at 09:28

        Not in my leagues. Most going Neale/Kelly/Cripps

Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 22:28

Wow Tigers not much better than the Blues last week.

Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 22:42

Danger VC 🙂

First question to ask, during Byes you just have to stick the C on a Bye player right to claim the double points for VC correct?

And my other question, is Scott – Rotham via Duursma stupid for this week? Scott can’t really crack it back with North anyway…

    Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 22:43

    *back into the North side

      Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 22:48

      Or alternatively could go Scott – Gardner for extra cash generation and for better JS in the long run too?

    Derek · 07/06/2019 at 22:49

    Yes. Any bye player for C.

    Do you need a player who will play this week to field 18?

    Rootham might just get this week and be out of team after bye when Hurn is back. Plenty better options next week

      Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 23:07

      Hi Derek,

      No I don't need him to field 18, I just was disgusted with Clark's 24 tonight and thought by using a trade I could cancel that out haha… Maybe it's ill advisable, especially considering just about all my opponents had to play Clark.

        Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 23:12

        Rotham's only a fill in Cliffy…this week will be his 3rd game filling in for an injured player.

          Cliffy · 07/06/2019 at 23:24

          Yes Russty, so I very much feel it's a wasted trade for me, a poor score is easier to swallow than a wasted trade down the line.

JugHead · 07/06/2019 at 22:58

Whew. Gave Balta the hip and shoulder just in time.

    Russty_ · 07/06/2019 at 23:58

    It's a freakin miracle he even ever reached 300 grand…Sell !!!!……………..!!!!!!!!!!……….

    ………………….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did I mention….!!!!!!!!!!! ?

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 09:02

      Sell sell sell!!!! That Balta fraud is getting punted next week with Clark. Happy to take $315K and $290K for their sorry ars-es.

hedski · 07/06/2019 at 23:05

Honestly think Clark deserved more than 24 points for that game, did a few good things.

    Big G · 08/06/2019 at 04:21

    Agree. Sometimes I wonder what is going on with CD.

TommyC99 · 08/06/2019 at 00:23

Whos more likely to finish top 10 mid out of Bont and Cunnington? Only have room in my midfield for one of them. If get cunnington i have 18 this week, if i get Bont, i play with 17. I think Bont is a more exciting pick due to his ceiling but cunnington is far more reliable and is bye friendly. I still notice Cunners doesnt score particularly amazing in losses, and he has GWS, Pies, eagles, cats and lions in the run home.

Which one guys?

    Big G · 08/06/2019 at 04:20

    Toss of a coin but I would say you are spot on with your analysis: Bont more likely to go big, but can throw in the odd bad game.

BradleyTC99 · 08/06/2019 at 00:37

Need a bit of help pls community. So after my 3 planned trades next week, i have worked out i will have 17 basically certain starters. And would need just 1 of ROB, Young, Burgess and Stocker to play to get 18, but i wouldn't be surprised if none of them played. Would you cull one of them this week instead of next week to open up a trade if none of those get up? Or should i just wait and hope 1 can get up? If i did the trade this week i'd be bringing in Gardner if that helps!

Malah · 08/06/2019 at 00:40

Whitfield is a no go, this is fix <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/rzN/bg_FFFFFF/txt_dddddd/border_ffffff/flags_0/.jpg&quot; width="1"/>

Big G · 08/06/2019 at 04:18

I thought clark deserved more than 24 sc points.

Rick Grimes · 08/06/2019 at 06:55

One bonus of bye round is I won't be stuck with that putrid Clark score (I hope). Has been an interesting ride Jordan, but pack your bags.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 08:58

    Could not agree more Rick. Clark and Balta both on my bench last night. Those two shit stains will be sent packing next week. 24 SC and 29 SC respectively. Absolutely putrid.

Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 09:22

Hatley l think will come in.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 09:22

    Hi Shake. What makes you think that?

      Leonard · 08/06/2019 at 09:26

      LOL POSSIBLE OR POSSIBLY

COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 09:45

When will we know I was thinking downgrading Walsh to Hatley

    Leonard · 08/06/2019 at 10:02

    usually approx 1 hour pre game

      COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 10:05

      I guess I’ll Trade Hayes to Hatley if Hatley plays instead

        Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 14:51

        hope you held Walsh mate. Scoring players over non-scorers every day of the week.

          COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 17:16

          I held Walsh! Good decision!

RealDealNeale · 08/06/2019 at 09:45

Would 4 trades left be too little at "full premium"? Below are my bye premo trade in plans I'm toying with

Opt 1 – Fyfe / Lloyd / Sicily in during the bye (only 8 trades post byes to upgrade to full premo)
Opt 2 – Andrews / Macrae / Blakeley (10 trades post byes to upgrade to full premo)

    RealDealNeale · 08/06/2019 at 09:46

    Opt 3 – Milera / Fyfe / Blakely (10 trades)

JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 09:53

Dusty has teased this year. He was on 49pts at quarter time, then couldnt ton up. Bringing him in could be a great move. Or he could just get mid pricer scores for the rest of the season. Ive nearly brought him in 3 times this year. But I dont have the cohones when I see him go missing for big chunks of the game.

    COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 10:08

    Dusty injured his lower back and spent time on the bench getting it treated for most of the third quarter

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 10:51

    I started the year with him thinking he was a bargain, traded him out when he was suspended.

    Bought him back this week.

    Was very happy at quarter time, but the tigers were belted after that and he did ok to get to 100.

    I like how they have their last 8 matches at the MCG. They usually play very well there.

      JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 11:25

      Didn't know he was injured. Yep, there is plenty of upside and his average is improving. If he builds his scoring toward Sept he is a bargain. But if you think he averages 90-95 from here on (I think he is better than that), there are plenty of other choices.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 11:39

    I hear ya Jughead. I reversed my Dusty trade 4 minutes before the bounce last night. At 1/4 time I was crying as he was flying. In the end Dusty disappointed again. Relieved I held off. Trying to pull back 2 trades after punting Whitfield for Gawn. DPP

    JEL · 08/06/2019 at 14:34

    Dusty teases every year, apart from 2017. That was the only year he averaged more than 110 (his avg was 119).
    There are currently a heap of players with a better average and who are cheaper to choose from.

      Derek · 08/06/2019 at 14:54

      Who?

        JEL · 08/06/2019 at 16:16

        Rocky, B Crouch, Heppell, Higgins, Walters, Fiorini, Hooper, M Crouch, Shiel, Henderson, Danger, Cogs

Dash · 08/06/2019 at 09:59

Stuck with Balta and Clark last night.
Grabbed Houli for Whitfield which turned out okay I guess.
Rotham a nephew Hately are interesting.
Would Hately be better to trade in if named?
I'm not sure who I can offload now. B Scott, Corbett, Burgess?
I hope those Gold Coast players get more than 24 and 29.

Dash · 08/06/2019 at 10:00

*Rotham and Hately I meant 😉

Tommo09 · 08/06/2019 at 10:27

What is a good score for bye weeks?

    silversovereign · 08/06/2019 at 10:59

    I’d say anything over 1950-2000

    JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 11:37

    Personally, I'm rapt with 1800+. But I want it for all 3 weeks. My planning is not to tank one of the weeks, so I rarely get a really good bye week score. Rank and leagues players wil have slightly different approaches, but I look more at what I can average across the three weeks.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 11:45

    1850 to 1900 consistently over the 3 bye rounds. If you can average around those scores across all 3 rounds you are flying. Can't afford to tank as it craters you down the rankings.

      Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 11:53

      Agreed Hawk. Have you in the A Graders this week mate. Your team is looking good. Seems it’s missed a lot of the carnage this week.

        TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 12:09

        Thanks Holty. I am slowly getting my team in order. It's been real tough with Whitfield not once but twice this season. Switching him for Gawn via all those DPP moves was a bit of luck I really needed. Having Balta and Clark on the bench was a bit freaky on my part, but I'll take it! I remember when you had that amazing round about 3 weeks ago when all your rooks just tonned up on field. Atkins 115SC. You gotta ride your good fortune in this caper mate. Looking forward to a big battle in A graders mate! Will be a ripper.💪

          Derek · 08/06/2019 at 13:57

          Ive got Holty in the Rabble and TH in Guns and Rookies. Neither got on Danger VC, will be watching Cripps and Neale very closely.

            Derek · 08/06/2019 at 14:55

            Yowsa Neale!! That hurts no-Neale owners

              Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 14:59

              Especially in the bye rounds Derek, where every score is proportionally more important because there are less on the field. keep going you good thing!

                Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 15:00

                B.E. of 170… hopefully he gets close enough that he won't be super cheap after his bye.

TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 12:00

Carlton will beat Brisbane today. It will be their 5th win in 45 games. Tophawk has called it! Get on 'em Lek!<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😂" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f602.svg"&gt;

    So that mesns Crippa goes big…….hmmmm………. no….Im sticking with Dangers 149…….

      TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 12:20

      Stick with Danger VC mate! You did well. I am probably going VC Cripps into J Kelly.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/06/2019 at 16:49

    That's why we pay you the big bucks hawk!

    Nice call mate!…great stuff from the Blues today.

Nifty · 08/06/2019 at 13:19

Any Hatley news guys?

    The unsullied · 08/06/2019 at 13:22

    News is he could be a late in

      dontblushbaby · 08/06/2019 at 13:40

      yep,could in for Knob Head

Catdog · 08/06/2019 at 13:59

Marty Whore?
Rory Bone?
Cant afford to go down to 16 or 17 this week, should we expect a late out or will they play?

TBone_9 · 08/06/2019 at 14:12

If Hately were to be a late in today, would it even be worth it to trade a Hayes down to him? He may not even play next week and 100% won’t play round 14 when you really need him. Problem is he looks to be a good scorer and if he can just hang in there for a few weeks after this week, he will make enough to justify the trade even if he is dropped again after that. I’m considering it, but if Clarke from Essendon can hold his place he would be the optimal option to bring in to cover the rest of the byes. Hmm tough decisions

Pranav · 08/06/2019 at 14:16

currently have 19 players and stocker on field. if i put the e on hately will he replace stocker and give me 20 scores to choose from?

    hedski · 08/06/2019 at 15:48

    Yeah pretty sure Pranav

Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 15:26

Blues are showing some good fight here, hope they can get up, would do them a lot of good,..even though I tipped Lions lol

    Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 15:27

    great game of footy. Patrick Cripps is a generational footballer.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 15:32

      He's a super gun player Finn, imagine if they just had one or two more like him.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/06/2019 at 16:38

        They at least have one more not as beasty but a silk jet in walsh

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:18

          True that mate, Walsh is the real deal, imagine what he'll do in the next 10 years.

The Lost Boys · 08/06/2019 at 15:45

Is it worth trading Burgess to Rotham, instead of Gardiner, this week? Looking for some cash generation for next week, and not too worried about coverage over the byes. Is there any chance Rotham stays in when Hurn comes back?

Will still have 18 on the field if I trade out Burgess, and I figure his score is pretty much a lock to be lowest so won't be missed.

Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 15:46

Neale has been completely shut down by curnow this quarter.

Tommo09 · 08/06/2019 at 15:53

Had the C on Cripps from last week and chose Neale over him *sigh*

TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 15:54

Crippa!!!! You little beauty!! He's on fire. VC nailed. BANG!

JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 15:57

C'mon Answorth……see if you can get to 50……

Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 15:58

This really is a game of seconds. Went to change the vc from Neale to Cripps at the last minute but ticked over to 1:15 just as I was doing it. Thought at half time I was very lucky with Neale on 87. Now just came back home with the family to see Neale not doing much more and Crippa going berserk. Come on Neale, please get to 130.

    Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 16:11

    Cant believe he didn’t have the curnow tag in the 1st half

      Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 16:26

      Curnow has only tagged once this year and that was last week against Zerrett. Teague came out during the week and said we would attack so I guess putting Curnow on someone to shut them down would go against what he said. But as a Carlton supporter very happy he came to his senses. As a Neale owner with the vc on him however, not happy.

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 16:25

    You must be happy with Walsh though

AuroraBorealis?! · 08/06/2019 at 16:15

Not that anybody didn't already know this, but Patrick Cripps is a star

Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 16:16

Trading Walsh this week hurts. Cripps with the best individual game I have ever seen.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 16:27

    That has to rank as one of the all time great games by any captain. Cripps is a true leader and outstanding captain. That running goal in the last quarter was inspirational. Well done Crippa!!

      BadgerHoney7 · 08/06/2019 at 16:40

      that running goal was not only inspiration, but extremely impressive. how many players these days do you see take the responsibility to take on a couple, and do it with such ease. hes truly going to be one of the greatest players we've seen in the last decade.

        Sam_01 · 08/06/2019 at 16:44

        Absolutely robbed if he doesn’t get scaled to 200
        Carried his spud of a side across the line

    DavidC · 09/06/2019 at 08:02

    Was going to trade Walsh at his bye. Might just keep him now like I did with Kelly last year.

    Daz · 09/06/2019 at 13:05

    Was sad trading walsh and him pumping a 141, traded to have 18 next week tho and he was the one with highest B/E to avg in my team, Had 20 this week but so much poo mixed in with monsters, was happy mcrouch repayed the faith.

JEL · 08/06/2019 at 16:22

There will be some very happy Crippa owners who had the C/VC on him.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 16:24

    OOOOOHHHH YEAHHHH!! Happy chappy here.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:20

      Good call TH, thought Danger's vc score was good but Cripps smashed it out of the park.

        TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 17:47

        Thanks Russty. Cripps was incredible today. I didnt expect him to pump out a mega score like that but havent nailed many VC's this year so it was great to get one. I am sitting on 800 SC after 5 played. Corbett is dropping a massive turd, Burgess actually doing OK for a change.

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:04

          800 for 5 is massive mate, even with the huge smelly Corbett log…hopefully he gets a few more touches for ya.

    KSinny · 08/06/2019 at 16:26

    Was so close to changing from Jelly to him but decided not to ;((((

KSinny · 08/06/2019 at 16:23

Cripps, Walsh and Gibbons what a game!! Unfortunately Answerth stunk it up 🙁

    BadgerHoney7 · 08/06/2019 at 16:27

    Thats huge mate, well done. Traded out both Walsh and Gibbons couple of weeks ago. Huge effort

Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 16:27

Why didn’t curnow go to Neale in the 1st half?!! They only had 1 good player in that 1st half. was sitting thinking just put curnow to him like they should av done from the 1st bounce

    Ja191 · 08/06/2019 at 16:37

    Pretty much no sides have put a hard tag on him, amazes me

    Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 16:51

    it was the process mate. Do you think Bolton wanted Curnow out of the midfield after being one of their best last 2 years or was it the hierarchy wanting him forward to give all the kids the opportunity in the midfield? First half the same with Curnow up forward. I honestly think at halftime Teague thought stuff the process as he has the opportunity to coach next year if wins permit. Great work however and really hope he keeps Curnow in that midfield and ignores the Carlton hierarchy.
    I may well be wrong but as a Carlton supporter, it seems the hierarchy has more influence on game day then the coach

      Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 16:56

      I think your correct Holty. Were you there? To see that 2nd half Cripps put in…wow.

        Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 17:12

        No wasn’t there. I will be watching the replay however. Just saw a few score updates during the day.

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:15

          Great win Holty, congrats mate, Cripps was enormous and Walshy, Curnow too 🙂

Rick Grimes · 08/06/2019 at 16:31

FML. I moved Walsh and Gibbons on I'm preparation for next week. Haha, this game is fookin cruel sometimes.

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:26

    Unfortunate timing Rick but it'll probably pay off in the long run, this silly game is a long run.

    Rocksta_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:27

    Me too RG. She’s a tough caper this SC.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/06/2019 at 16:46

Every time without fail.
Sack the coach win next week. 🤔
Cripps was an angry brute. Just tore the game apart with Walsh riding shot gun. 👏
Curnow shut down Neale but took till half time for the penny to drop on that one.

Was gonna go walsh-fyfe next week but after that effort may just need to find another way to bring in fyfe.

    Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 16:59

    Definitely hold for next week

    silversovereign · 08/06/2019 at 17:01

    How many times did Cripps offload to Walsh!!!! It was a beautiful thing!

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:16

      So glad I kept Walsh, he just keeps getting better.

        JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 17:35

        Yep. As good as he is, being a first year player I've been waiting for him to run out of petrol before moving him on. It doesn't look like happening.

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:08

          Yeah agree Jughead, last week looked like he might've needed a break soon but he really lifted this week and was probably one of the best on ground.
          Reckon he'll be close to my last traded out midfielder if at all.

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:40

    🤔 The Pies should sack Buckley after they win the Prelim.. 😎

Jeff · 08/06/2019 at 17:06

Who to put the Captain on – Lloyd, Coniglio or Williams?

    Jeff · 09/06/2019 at 16:38

    I went with Lloyd. Thanks for all your naaaat answers

      Russty_ · 09/06/2019 at 16:44

      Best to make up your own mind anyway, it's your team.

      JohnDJ59 · 09/06/2019 at 16:45

      I put the C on Lloyd after J.Kelly didn't do anything in the last quarter of his game.

Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:22

Burgess is on 26!….lol, wonder if he can get to 60 or so?

    Dan · 08/06/2019 at 17:31

    Yeah, now on 38 in the 2nd quarter, looking good.

    Rocksta_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:31

    Hope so mate. I’ve already had Answerth and Balta spud it up, although hopefully Balta’s score will drop out as I have 19 available.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:34

      Same Rocksta, Burgess, Balta and Answerth here, let the least worthy fall by the wayside, some nice bonus 'much above predicted scores' in there this week too though 🙂

        Rocksta_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:39

        Yes, but dickhead me traded out Walsh and Gibbons this week. Talk about poor timing.

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:44

          Pretty hard to know these things in advance mate, Walsh looked to be declining, maybe tired…Gibbons was mr 60 in the last 4 weeks.
          If it benefits your overall result in the end, then moving them on isn't a bad thing, will just hurt this week.

          Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:26

          Surely they were next weeks trade ..

            Rocksta_ · 08/06/2019 at 19:41

            Yes, but I wanted to get Coniglio in this week as he’s cheap and only has a BE of 22.

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 17:50

    I was hoping to get at least 100 between Answerth and Burgess. Only have 18 this week.

    Burgess making up for Aneswerth

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:01

      Let's hope he keeps going Derek, if he has a good score this game, could even lift a bit going fwd like Balta did, before he turned back into Balta. 😉

      JugHead · 08/06/2019 at 18:02

      I only have 18 as well. I'm trying to figure out whether I do a mid round trade to bring in an Adelaide or Giants premo to flush Answerths score out of my team

        Derek · 08/06/2019 at 18:39

        Take his 33. Get premos next round off their byes. Stick to your plan.

        Mind you Milera is very tempting at his price as a top 8 defender.

      Derek · 08/06/2019 at 18:41

      No. Burgess gone down in 3rd quarter. 64 and on his way to 80+

      Think he is done for game

        TommyC99 · 08/06/2019 at 18:42

        Crap. Was relying on him next week. At least he scored well i guess

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:49

          He's back on again now, maybe only a cramp, on 68…woohoo Burgess!

            TommyC99 · 08/06/2019 at 19:04

            Spent majority of the quarter off unfortunately. Take 71 every day of the week though. Reckon he has earned his spot for next week so hoping he gets up

Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:41

Gawd….this game is shit compared to the last one, which was full of excitement and tension,and some outstanding individual performances.
I reckon the Gold Coast team should be scrapped for maybe another Victorian team, or a team from Darwin, that'd be killer…a Darwin team, there'd be some serious talent in there..and some great opportunities for some of the talented locals.

    Rocksta_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:47

    Agreed. I’m finding it very hard to watch. I even flicked over to the movies to see what was on. Next game should be a ripper though

      Big G · 08/06/2019 at 17:52

      Or a Tasmanian team.

        Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:56

        Yeah Big G…agree a Tasmanian team would be a good thing also, plenty of good players have come from Tassie.

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 17:52

    A Darwin team would be sensational. It wouldnt lack pace!! LOL The place is just not big enough yet. Just 150,000 people live there. It needs to get to the size of Geelong I reckon. 250,000 would do it and a decent stadium. TIO would need to get a major upgrade.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 17:58

      Plenty of money there though Hawk for them to bring in whoever they needed to bolster their ranks, give em the same monetary and trade concessions GWS and the Suns had in their starting years.

        Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 18:45

        I think it is hard enough to find serious talent to want to move to the Gold Coast. It would be 3 times harder in Darwin. No one with any serious talent would want to play there.

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 19:28

          They would if they enjoy a largely alcoholic population, sweaty ass humid weather and monsoonal rain Holty, not to mention the ever present chance of being eaten by a Dinosaur…lol

            Nifty · 08/06/2019 at 19:54

            We’ve got the best weather in 🇦🇺 up here..

              Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 19:59

              What's the deal with your Hotels up there Nifty?…they all smell like wet damp carpet.
              I think it's cause they have wet damp carpet 🙂
              That being said, when the rest of the country runs out of water in the future, Darwin will probably become one of the last refuges.
              They'd better not run out of Beer though, otherwise it'll be unbridled chaos.

    Beezneez · 08/06/2019 at 18:13

    No offence Russty but I think there are enough Victorian teams dare I say too many. Some of the game's greatest playets have come from Tassie e.g Royce Hart, Darrel Baldock, Ian Stewart.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:19

      None taken mate, I hear ya…Brent Crosswell was a star too, I bought his set of Golf Clubs off him a couple of years ago :), still have em now.
      Sadly, he's struck down with a cruel illness these days.

    Disco Stu · 08/06/2019 at 18:43

    Gold Coast to Become the Darwin Survivors
    North the Tassie Devils
    Melbourne will need to take back the Fucshia’s moniker

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:32

    I had Burgess and effen Corbett.. my bl00dy grandmother could score 10 SC points . at least they didn’t get 41 each … Corbett’s score drops out for me .. thank F

    DavidC · 09/06/2019 at 08:06

    We need less Vic teams not more. Move one of them to Tassie. GC has been totally mismanaged, it has the population to succeed.

Beezneez · 08/06/2019 at 18:01

Currently have 20 on field and need to make at least one of my planned trades to allow for 3 each of the next two weeks. Do you think I should trade in Williams for Whitfield or Parker to Gardner for dpp with Burgess for the following rounds. If I don't trade Whitfield it gives me another look at Williams who has a BE of 145 and decide next week netween him and Sicily. Williams this week allows a better score over one of the spuds – currently appeats to be Corbett.

Justin · 08/06/2019 at 18:16

Lloyd in for Greene, no Hately *sad face

TBone_9 · 08/06/2019 at 18:18

Greene out…. Hately not in. Makes that decision easy then

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:21

    Hately shagged the Coach's Daughter for sure!…probably knocked her up too.
    Or ran over the Coach's Cat…and did a hit and run…on Camera, lol

      COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 18:33

      That would make sense why he cannot get a game

GreendaleFC · 08/06/2019 at 18:30

I made the risky call to go Bailey Scott to Hately just before the North game. Why does Leon Cameron hate me.

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 18:31

    He doesn't hate you, he just hates Hately.

    Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 18:42

    Same

Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 18:41

Oops I took the punt on Hatley just before the North vs GC game as Scott was to be moved on. Was right they weren’t going to risk Greene but found no info that Lloyd would replace him.😩

    neil demons delight · 08/06/2019 at 19:34

    GWS just dont like him Send him to the dees or sainters .They will give him a go .All is not lost though Holty You were getting nothing out of Scott

      TheLostBoys · 08/06/2019 at 19:38

      The certainly don't seem to want to give him a go – think he will push to leave for more opportunity next year?

Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 18:44

Im just happy the adel capt got a gig!! Now I’ll wait for the tag!

    hedski · 08/06/2019 at 19:34

    I'm glad it won't go to Matty Crouch Shake.

    hedski · 08/06/2019 at 19:41

    Got you in Magnificent 7 Shake, should give me a touch up I only have 17 playing.

      Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 20:10

      Sloane will lucky to get 40 Hedski!!!

        hedski · 08/06/2019 at 20:14

        Not looking good, hell bounce back

          Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 20:16

          Not this week!! 🙁 l knew he’d be tagged

TelescopicCox · 08/06/2019 at 19:04

I’ve gone early on some rookies to maximise my premos throughout the bye. I’ll either sky rocket up the rankings or blow my season. All or nothing

TommyC99 · 08/06/2019 at 19:22

Bring in Sicily or Ryan?

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:24

    Yes.. toss a coin .. I’d probably go Ryan first..

    neil demons delight · 08/06/2019 at 19:30

    Ryan for mine Sicily a walking timebomb

    TOPHAWK1 · 08/06/2019 at 19:38

    I reckon Sicily mate. Just.

hedski · 08/06/2019 at 19:36

Come on Jelly, missed Danger and Cripps as captain so it's all on you.

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 19:43

    Good luck mate hope he goes well for ya..unless you're playing me this week 🙂

      hedski · 08/06/2019 at 19:45

      Not this week Russty

Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 19:37

Well a massive balls up by me with bringing in Hatley has forced my hand by using 2 more trades to avoid Corbett’s score. My strength this year has been holding trades but wasting trades like this will see me plummet quickly. Hopefully everything works out next 2 weeks with no injuries so I can try and make up for this poor mistake.

    Sam_01 · 08/06/2019 at 19:38

    How many left hotly?

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 20:48

    What made you bring hately in?

      Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 22:19

      Had to bring in someone as I had a few injuries from last week. No other rookies playing this week and Scott was the only player I had who I could trade that wasn’t getting games. I knew Greene wouldn’t play and all reports (even from the GWS camp) said Hatley would be his replacement. I took the punt in hope to only use 1 more trade to avoid a donut. Bad move in the end.

        Derek · 08/06/2019 at 22:46

        Lack of rookies, believe it or not, I traded Burgess in this week to field 18, even thought about Naish

          Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 11:39

          Really regretting it now Derek. Could of made my same trades without Hatley. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:43

Tom Lynch a late out for the Crows

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:43

    Greenwood in

      hedski · 08/06/2019 at 19:48

      That's good for my draft team, he was my only donut (Greenwood)
      Think I have you in the Rat Pack this week Lazza? Raw Tigers?

        Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 19:52

        the Martini threw me .. if that’s you then yes.. gonna be tight ..

          Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 19:55

          Hopefully neither of you have Sloane…he's copping 'the Boar' tag.

          hedski · 08/06/2019 at 20:02

          Ha ha, The Martini Police is referenced from the Arctic Monkeys song "Star Treatment".
          I only have 17 playing so you should get me.

Defying_Madness · 08/06/2019 at 19:58

I am licking my pork chops thinking about Sloanes price post bye

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 20:01

    The Boar is gouging him pretty good at the moment.

    Sam_01 · 08/06/2019 at 20:11

    He will be that cheap but I don’t know if I can squeeze him in ahead of Neale and Fyfe

    Dan · 08/06/2019 at 20:17

    100% I'm saving a place in my midfield ready for him.

hedski · 08/06/2019 at 20:15

Not sure my eyes were working, did Tarantula have 16 possies in the first QTR? Wow.

Derek · 08/06/2019 at 20:18

I hate De Boer. Does this to my players every week

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:09

    Turned out ok for ya Derek, Sloaney's a warrior and battled through it.

nickgonzalez771 · 08/06/2019 at 21:03

I was really questioning my choice to bring in Taranto last week after seeing Jelly and Gonigliog smash it out of the park – perhaps not such a bad choice after all?

Fearthebeard · 08/06/2019 at 21:31

Wtf is b Smith doing? Had to reverse trades on him this week when Whitfield injured ffs spud scoring

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 21:53

    He's proceeding to lay a big fat turd in our backlines this week Beard….bastard!

    silversovereign · 08/06/2019 at 22:51

    I planned to trade him before injury Armageddon hot about 3 weeks ago. I will turf him after round 14.

Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 21:52

Congiliogs has become a real yoyo, he used to be fairly consistent….don't think I'd want him in my final mid top 8

    JEL · 08/06/2019 at 22:23

    If you have him it's a tough call whether to keep him.
    Games like tonight make you shake your head.

Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 21:57

Kelly hasn't done shit in the first 11 minutes of the last quarter, except go backwards.

    JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 22:05

    I just saw that Russty, 104 at 3qt and now nearly the end of the 4th and he's on 100

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:13

      I think he just got back to where he started the quarter John, mucho dissappointo for his owners.

        JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 22:20

        Had the VC on him, not that it matters much, I'm looking at being wiped out during the byes, I have 18,14,17 for the three bye rounds.

    Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 22:09

    Only 1 touch in the last

      Derek · 08/06/2019 at 22:17

      -3 for last quarter

    Finnius · 08/06/2019 at 22:11

    Captain hurts. I thought he was in for a big one at three quarter time. Exact same story with my VC…

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 22:14

    even with that Russty he should be on 130.. Sloane has 15 less possessions and gets a higher score .. watched his score jump 30 points in 2 minutes .. just bullshit that last 5 minutes gets double/triple scores ..

      KSinny · 08/06/2019 at 22:17

      It was Sloanes impact that scored him those extra points, got 2 crucial goals in the last as well as a few contested possies.

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:18

      Yeah that's a big discrepancy Laz…must've been a fair chunk of his possessions ineffective?

      JEL · 08/06/2019 at 22:28

      Sorry Lazza, but if you don't understand that, then Supercoach is not the game for you.
      Supercoach scoring is ALL about context in the game.
      If you want simple points for action scoring, you're better off with AFL Fantasy

        Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 22:44

        Yeh good on ya JEL, J is obviously for Jerk… I get it .. doesn’t make it less frustrating..

    Holty01 · 08/06/2019 at 22:22

    I bought him in and put the C on him. Was happy at 3/4 time. Not anymore.

Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 22:10

Cant believe Sloane hit triple figures

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:16

    He went ape poop after they dropped the tag off him Shake, nice effort considering.

      Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 22:21

      Especially being on only 4 after the 1st

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 22:19

    56 in last quarter

      Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 22:50

      21 pts for 1 contested mark (against Shaw), and the resulting goal..

Big G · 08/06/2019 at 22:10

Is it just me or did williams have a 60 point quarter for doing nothing?

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:21

    Looked like he did plenty in the last to me Big G.

    Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 22:22

    His last possie was holding the ball but got scaled up!!

    Yeahnah · 08/06/2019 at 22:22

    He was everywhere in the last. Few intercept marks and hitting targets inside 50.

    NoLanguage96 · 09/06/2019 at 02:22

    He had a great quarter. Contested possessions and two spears inside F50

KSinny · 08/06/2019 at 22:13

What a second half from SloaneDog! Disgusted with Kelly's last quarter especially since I had the C on him.

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:20

    Yeah skinny, that's gotta be heartbreaking Kelly's non scoring in the last quarter, I would've pegged him for 130+ easy.

Sam_01 · 08/06/2019 at 22:14

Geee having Williams and crouch on the pine for the last few, great to have them back
Traded Whitfield to laird, feel like he was robbed just a touch
Bsmith well and truly in the firing line

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 22:54

    Laird did better than 81 I thought

COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 22:17

What to do with B.Smith now? Do we have to trade him before Hore?

    Sam_01 · 08/06/2019 at 22:25

    hold till his bye probably, probably still more reliable then most rookies

    Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:29

    Probably wouldn't panic about him yet Corey…he's averaging 89 and could ton up any week, just a bad game I reckon, who knows why?…but he'd be one of the last to go for me.

      COREYSC · 08/06/2019 at 22:40

      Wonder if he was tagged

        JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 22:59

        Cumming tagged him.

    Derek · 08/06/2019 at 22:52

    Hore has bye next week. He turns into Sicily. Smith has bye following week he turns into Lloyd

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 23:03

      Wish I could just turn this guy into that guy but my trades are getting desperately low, I have to think about every one carefully from now on.

      COREYSC · 09/06/2019 at 00:08

      My defence is Lloyd, Z.Williams, Laird, B.Smith, Hore and Clark
      Hore turns in Sicily next week but after that I need Hurn and then Whitfield when he returns

        JohnDJ59 · 10/06/2019 at 13:44

        I'd be keeping Hore for now and trading Clark out.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/06/2019 at 12:23

      Hope you got plenty of cash for lloyd Derek

Yeahnah · 08/06/2019 at 22:25

Not sure what Leon was thinking in the last, sending Taranto to the wing and keeping Coniglio forward.

Shake_n_bake · 08/06/2019 at 22:31

ROB will keep his spot next week!!

    Lazza · 08/06/2019 at 22:54

    Should keep it all year .. won more clearances than any other player.. wonder what his starting price will be next year …. could be the next Grundy..
    How poor was Mummy ??

      Russty_ · 08/06/2019 at 22:59

      He was pretty bad Lazza, gave a bunch of frees away and got beaten by a rookie Ruck. Sauce could still slide in to take his (ROB's) glory away though.

        Derek · 09/06/2019 at 11:32

        Mummy had an opportunity to destroy Sloane at one stage when he was standing under a mark. Mummy’s got soft 😉

        ROB was very good. I traded him out this week thinking Jacobs would be back next week, the week when I could use him finally when Max and Grundy rest. Oh well.

KSinny · 08/06/2019 at 23:09

How's everyone going this week? I'm doing pretty decent on 1400 with 6 to go, hopefully I can get to 2000.

    JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 23:31

    Stuffed, doubt I will win any of my league games,I have 18 on field but most of my opponents have 20 plus and either Danger or Cripps as their VC. Looking at around 1850 if every thing goes well tomorrow.

    Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 00:39

    1850-1900
    Kelly with the C 😵

      Derek · 09/06/2019 at 11:24

      You might have just an ‘above average’ score this week like us mere mortals

      How is the next 2 weeks looking? I have been so worried about round 13, it’s looking good now.

        Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 15:25

        I have planned well for the rd13 bye as thought it would be the round to make a move. Still looks good but those injuries for this week really forced my hand. Obviously Grundy and Gawn an issue but rest of my lines should be maxed. My biggest issue this year has been my failure to select the right vc and c choices. I think I’ve had 5 rounds that I’ve failed to hit 110 which is not good. This week missing out on Cripps and even Danger will cost me a few.

          JohnDJ59 · 09/06/2019 at 18:57

          Hey Holty, my VC and C choices are about the only thing that has kept me from having a complete disaster of a season. Apart from this round I have mainly kept to Cripps, Fyfe, Danger and Grundy as my VC and C options. Six times I have been able to use my VC score, with scores between 124 to 165 and six times I had to use my C choice for scores between 101 to 169. I've had two scores under 110.

    Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 07:38

    1354 with 6 to go, but Balta’s 29 will drop out as I have 19 playing. Should get close to 2000.

    Sam_01 · 09/06/2019 at 07:42

    1440 with heeny/treloar/Grundy/Gawn/heeney/lloyd to go

    silversovereign · 09/06/2019 at 08:12

    Was looking fantastic before the crows giants game, but cogs, Cameron, Smith, laird and hopper all underperformed. Probably 1800 at best.

    TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 08:45

    Sitting on 1427 with Lloyd, Crisp, Grundy, Gawn, Hore, and Oskar Baker to come. Hoping to hit 2000-2050.

      Derek · 09/06/2019 at 10:42

      I’m not conceding defeat yet, although it is looking unlikely. I have Oliver and Heeney vs your Crips and Lloyd plus 90pts.

      Your VC Cripps was a master stroke plus having Gibbons go 100+ and not having to use Corbett’s score was handy. I only had 18 this week with Hurn and Stocker out.

      I might push 1950 if everything goes good.

        Shake_n_bake · 09/06/2019 at 13:31

        That 90pts it’s like an extra good player.

          Derek · 09/06/2019 at 14:15

          I know, I’m about $13 odds to win.

          I’m feeling buyer remorse already for getting Cogniglio this week. Had enough coin to go Hayns to Cogs. Could have, should have gone Libba to anyone but I held Libba to cover next week.

            Shake_n_bake · 09/06/2019 at 14:45

            Cogniglio this year like our Melbourne weather

              Derek · 09/06/2019 at 14:54

              I did the maths, needed a value player. He was very poor last night

                TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 16:37

                He will bounce back Derek. Coniglio may have felt lousy last night. It happens. Expect a big one next week mate. Bloke is a jet.💥

                  Russty_ · 09/06/2019 at 16:46

                  What's Heeney's excuse?…getting sick of that muppet

                    Derek · 09/06/2019 at 17:26

                    I don’t think Heeney is a midfielder. His best scores when he plays mainly forward. Swans have to win games though or have ball forward a lot

    JugHead · 09/06/2019 at 09:29

    Looking at about 1850 which Im happy with… only having 18 starters this week and a couple of ordinary scores.

    TelescopicCox · 09/06/2019 at 09:56

    1071 with 9 to go – Grundy, Gawn, Crisp, Treloar, Baker, Lloyd, Heeney, Hore and Moore

    hedski · 09/06/2019 at 10:42

    Struggling, only have 17 playing.
    1353 with Jelly captain, I have Petracelle, Grundy, Gawn and Angus to play.
    Might crack 1700 if I'm lucky.
    Clark, Answorth, Smith and Cogs hurt.
    Was very pleasantly surprised with Gibbo tonning up.

      JEL · 09/06/2019 at 14:56

      Very similar, with 1373 + Telly as captain and 4 others to play.
      Projected to get about 1750

    Beezneez · 09/06/2019 at 10:44

    1468 from 13 with 8 to play – three to drop out. Next two weeks will be challenging though.

      Derek · 09/06/2019 at 13:12

      Looking very good

    Shake_n_bake · 09/06/2019 at 13:29

    1256 with 7 left only 18players so maybe lucky to get 1900 like Derek if only stocker and Hurn played.

    Russty_ · 09/06/2019 at 13:50

    sitting on 1584 with 4 to come and Balta's 29 to drop out, bummer Stocker was out cause then Answerth's score could've been left out too.

    COREYSC · 09/06/2019 at 14:06

    Projected 2,090 but I don’t think Gawn and Grundy will get their
    Projected scores so I hope I can crack 2,000

      Derek · 09/06/2019 at 18:36

      That’s a great score coming up

    SC_Donkey · 09/06/2019 at 15:06

    997/10 with 8 players to play today plus 159(VC) to add, hoping to get 1900+

    Defying_Madness · 09/06/2019 at 18:48

    Sitting on 1607 with Gawn, Grundy, Hore and Baker left to play. Hopefully I can hit 2000. Screwed up my captain options and went T Kelly VC then got greedy and put the C on Neale so I could have gone higher if I played that better.

Worpedo · 08/06/2019 at 23:16

Worth getting in Rothem this week (trade Hayes to him)?
Only have 17 playing currently

    JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 23:50

    No, he has the bye next week and Hurn should be back the week after.

JohnDJ59 · 08/06/2019 at 23:25

Stuffed up my VC-C this weekend, I usually share it between, Cripps, Fyfe, Danger and Grundy since I traded him in. It has worked very well for me up until now, so why would I change it, I'm asking myself exactly that question.

NoLanguage96 · 09/06/2019 at 02:26

Cunners. How this bloke is in 3% of teams is staggering.

    Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 14:58

    I think most think he will drop off (myself included) as this has been a once off season. Never done this before but he just keeps getting the job done.

      NoLanguage96 · 09/06/2019 at 15:26

      He's always scored ok but not above 110 as consistently as this year. Can't see him dropping off tbh averages more clearances than anyone else in the comp

        Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 15:31

        i just hope for all those that bought him in that extra attention doesn’t go to him now that Higgins is out.

          Finnius · 09/06/2019 at 16:24

          He's an inside player so very hard to tag.

          NoLanguage96 · 10/06/2019 at 01:15

          Doesn't really get affected by the tag as he's usually on the bottom of the pack anyway

    Finnius · 09/06/2019 at 15:13

    I brought him in this week. Hopefully he keeps going! so consistent.

      NoLanguage96 · 09/06/2019 at 15:26

      Amen!

dontblushbaby · 09/06/2019 at 10:23

Expect Ollie Wines to be back next week after good game yesterday in the SANFL, will impact Rockliff if he plays ?

    TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 11:50

    Highly likely mate. I punted Rocky 2 weeks ago when he didnt get up for Shanghai. With Wines coming back, he will still see midfield time, but it may be a lot less.

KSinny · 09/06/2019 at 11:20

Lockhart to Rotham? Means I won't have to get Answerth 33

    Derek · 09/06/2019 at 11:25

    If Rootham scores 34, that’s a win.

    TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 11:47

    Rotham is only covering for Hurn mate. Hurn will be back after next week's bye and Rotham will be dropped and back playing for East Perth. Not worth it IMO.

    DavidC · 09/06/2019 at 15:04

    You're laughing. I have to take that plus Balta's 29 and Clark's 24.

      KSinny · 09/06/2019 at 15:13

      well i also have Balta's 29 and smith's 48 so yeh…

JugHead · 09/06/2019 at 12:51

Anyone else surprised the swans are favourites in the head to head betting with WCE?
Late out coming up for the eagles maybe?

    TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 12:57

    Elliott Yeo did not fly out on Friday with his team mates. Not sure if he flew out on a later flight, but rumours have it that Yeo will not play. Just noticed that Yeo is now confirmed out.

      JugHead · 09/06/2019 at 13:31

      Lucky for me I don't have him. Late outs in bye weeks tear all your plans to shreds.

    TommyC99 · 09/06/2019 at 13:07

    Think its the eagles record in sydney. Its shocking

iLoveNMFC · 09/06/2019 at 14:32

Grundy or Gawn captain?

    Russty_ · 09/06/2019 at 14:55

    Flip a coin mate, Grundy's had ankle issues lately though.

    JohnDJ59 · 09/06/2019 at 16:56

    They usually cancel each other out, so didn't consider either this week.

DavidC · 09/06/2019 at 14:40

Lobb is out with stress fractures in his 4th metatarsal of his right foot.

    Russty_ · 09/06/2019 at 14:55

    Nasty injury, maybe 6-8 weeks?..Neil NDD won't be happy.

      neil demons delight · 09/06/2019 at 18:22

      you are right bud welcome Caleb same price but ruck coverage with him is a little suss

    Yeahnah · 09/06/2019 at 21:49

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the surface at Optus?

Shake_n_bake · 09/06/2019 at 15:57

Rotham has the last mark and kick for the qtr not even a possession added. 🤔

    TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 16:34

    That will update as soon as the second half starts. Lloyd owed some points too for a late touch.

      Shake_n_bake · 09/06/2019 at 16:46

      Need every pt possible!

TOPHAWK1 · 09/06/2019 at 17:48

Llllloooooooyyydddd!! Another master class by Lloyd. Only picked him up 3 weeks ago, and boy he is seriously tearing things up. No regrets. Good boy Lloydy! 💪😍👍

    Derek · 09/06/2019 at 18:34

    Not having him hurts. I hardly even saw him in the first half and he was on 80.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/06/2019 at 12:20

    He is just so clean

    Hardly ever misses a target with high de.

    That's why he scores so well

The Bont · 09/06/2019 at 18:02

If your captain is someone with a bye will the extra points from VC and emergency come in after the round is finished?

hedski · 09/06/2019 at 18:05

There goes my tipping for the round, only have 2 outta 5 so far.
Great win by the swannies.

Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 18:40

Oliver in doubt for tmr

    JugHead · 09/06/2019 at 18:42

    Don't even joke about it…………………

      Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 18:47

      I’m not. He left the track early today with a sore back. Reckons he’s good to go for tmr, but he didn’t look great when he went off.

        JugHead · 09/06/2019 at 18:50

        If I knew how to do emojis it would be a facepalm

          Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 18:52

          😱

          Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 18:53

          I’m in the same boat mate. Hopefully he gets up

Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 18:58

Oliver News: https://twitter.com/7NewsMelbourne/status/1137642

Stupid Coach · 09/06/2019 at 19:31

I have the VC on Cripps and switched the C to Macrae who is not playing this week. Just confirming that I will get the double points for Cripps

    Rocksta_ · 09/06/2019 at 19:38

    Yes

Steeeve · 09/06/2019 at 19:35

One game left, I'll be disappointed if I don't break the 2000 mark, what's going to be par this round?

    hedski · 09/06/2019 at 20:12

    About 300 more than me Steeeve

      Steeeve · 09/06/2019 at 20:51

      I'm having a good week… apart from fielding Corbett… and Answerth. Yuck. Thank Jock for Gibbons, Walsh, Cripps, C Danger, Lloyd etc

    Holty01 · 09/06/2019 at 21:14

    I might get to 1900 which I think is fantastic when not having Cripps or Danger as your C. I think the C selection will be the difference this week between a 1800-1900 and a potential 2000+

      The Bont · 10/06/2019 at 08:24

      Fielding 22 this week for myself and im looking at a projected of 2149 with Danger as captain

        Holty01 · 10/06/2019 at 10:36

        Nice Bont. How is the rest of your bye rounds going?

          The Bont · 10/06/2019 at 12:15

          17 next week and 16 the week after. But I still have 16 trades so I will make 3 this week and the next week so i can get 18 on the field. I am playing for cash league wins so I needed as many points this week as I could. Im vsing 2 bottom teams next week and the week after.
          P.S. Keep up the great work Holty, your killing in the ranks

BoltonsBlues · 09/06/2019 at 19:52

1800 with Grundy, Gawn and Hore to go (will drop the 10 from Corbett and 33 from Answerth)… and im going to lose my cash league H2H 🙁

KSinny · 09/06/2019 at 21:16

Projected 2015 atm with Gawn, Grundy and Hore to go. Unfortunately could have had a much better week if it wasn't for a 27, 33, 36, 48 and Jelly as C.

    Sam_01 · 09/06/2019 at 21:29

    2080 myself doubt grundy and Gawn will go to their projected tho

      Swans2012 · 09/06/2019 at 21:44

      Nice scores! I’m looking at 1900-2000, yeo out cost me a shot at 2050+. Good to see the swannies put on a show!

        Derek · 09/06/2019 at 21:58

        Swans were good. Down 3. Buddy looking a threat and Reid getting plenty of it.

        Almost that time of the year to think about getting Franklin.

        Hurn out hurt me. Had to take Aneswerth 33. Around 1950ish.

          Swans2012 · 10/06/2019 at 08:14

          I’ve already got him unfortunately, bought him in when I thought he’d turned the corner just pre injury, ah well nice to finally get some points out of him, he’s cheap, but I’m not convinced he’ll return to last couple years scoring yet. I’m going to send him to f7 soon…..

            Brn · 10/06/2019 at 14:27

            Nar buddy no good

COREYSC · 09/06/2019 at 22:29

Last two weeks I’ve played it safe
Took Grundys 124
Took Dangerfield 149

But my skippers before hand as a result decide to pump out mammoth scores Gawn 158 and Cripps 194

Will I change my ways no chance haha

Connor · 10/06/2019 at 11:03

Think I might go early this week on:
Hayes > Bewley
D. Moore > Gardner
This frees up cash for 2 upgrades next week (plus another downgrade). Thoughts?

    Rocksta_ · 10/06/2019 at 11:50

    I want to use my last trade to go from Hayes to Bewely as well but am just worried about his JS. He looks like he’s got talent but he hasn’t exactly set the world on fire.

      Brn · 10/06/2019 at 14:26

      I did hayes to bewley otherwise i wouldnt be able to get boak

JugHead · 10/06/2019 at 11:31

Trading question…….I've used 2 of my 3 trades this week and held one back for emergencies. I only have 18 on field.
I'd like to wait until Hore, Grundy and Oliver are safely under way, then use the last trade on some bye players to get a jump start for next week.
Can I trade through the last game? Does anyone know when all trading stops this week?

    The Bont · 10/06/2019 at 12:11

    You should be able to trade bye player to another bye player

    Holty01 · 10/06/2019 at 12:12

    I think you will need to do that trade b4 the last game starts. Not 100% sure however.

    JugHead · 10/06/2019 at 12:34

    ok……I might do it 10 min before the bounce to be safe.

      JohnDJ59 · 10/06/2019 at 13:40

      I think that would be the safest way JugHead, I would have thought once the last game starts it would be lockout.

    Done. As long as nobody does a hamstring running through the banner, Im all good. Thanks all.

    JugHead · 10/06/2019 at 15:36

    Learning point for me and others. The final game is under way and all bye players are locked out. Something to remember for next week.

COREYSC · 10/06/2019 at 12:52

so after the bye rounds I’ll Have 13 trades left with Walsh and Naish as my last two onfield rookies left i’ll Still have B.Crouch, Z.Williams and B.Smith but I think Z.Williams will be a keeper. Is that a good position to be in? Needing to make 5 more upgrades?

    JohnDJ59 · 10/06/2019 at 13:41

    Sounds like a good position to be in Corey.

Nathan · 10/06/2019 at 16:25

In for a huge one this week. 2200+

    JugHead · 10/06/2019 at 16:29

    Well done. The way the last game is going there could a few really good scores. I was looking at 1850 now might get closer to 1950.

    COREYSC · 10/06/2019 at 17:22

    Impressive mate, I’ll be around 2,100

    Tony · 10/06/2019 at 18:07

    Did you captain Cripps Nathan? Fair effort mate

      Nathan · 10/06/2019 at 18:11

      Yep and it certainly helped

    Sam_01 · 10/06/2019 at 18:19

    Nice mate 2068 for me, next week is the true challenge
    Sicily and Fyfe in for stack and Wilkie I’m thinking

Sam_01 · 10/06/2019 at 17:54

Probably a bit biased as a treloar owner but god they are harsh on him on the clangers count, kicks out in front of pies player and a dees player just beats him to it —> Clanger
On the break only way is fwd kicks to a one on one pies player loses —> Clanger
Ineffective disposal yes but hardly clangers

    Shake_n_bake · 10/06/2019 at 18:00

    So true. Some players just win it in tight and try to get it fwd at any cost to gain meters for their team and clear congestion that should be rewarded

      Sam_01 · 10/06/2019 at 18:06

      Yeah I don’t see how a pack centre clearance that is just bombed into the fwd 50 then a defender to marks it, don’t see how it is a Clanger on the kickers behalf

The unsullied · 10/06/2019 at 18:39

How do we get rid of Hore he just keeps getting better?

    KSinny · 10/06/2019 at 18:44

    Easy answer…. don't

      Holty01 · 10/06/2019 at 18:47

      I think he is locked in my team at D6.

        KSinny · 10/06/2019 at 18:52

        Same here Holty he's scoring well enough for a defender

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/06/2019 at 19:54

    After his bad game hore may have just about overtaken Brodie

Sam_01 · 10/06/2019 at 19:49

Trades running thin
Smith/duursma/Walsh to go
10 in the bank no cash no great rookies on bench Answerth most valuable
Are Neale and hurn absolute must haves considering the rest of the season? Hurn id day yes but I could save 70k and grab Sloane or something instead of Neale

    DavidC · 11/06/2019 at 06:25

    Neale started the season well but has faded, there are better options now.

TBone_9 · 10/06/2019 at 20:08

2048 this week, thank goodness for having 20 onfield to lose Balta and Answerths scores. Very worried about fielding enough players this week though, might take me 3 trades just to get 18 playing. Makes it more difficult too with Hore scoring so well.. how’d everyone else fare this week?

    Sam_01 · 10/06/2019 at 20:18

    2068 for me bone moved up 1835 spots to 2670

    Lazza · 10/06/2019 at 20:28

    Hi TB9.. 2057 for me .. gotta thank Capt Red Beard … good enough to win 9 of 10 .. however, I will need to bring in 2 players to field a competitive team this week… can’t afford a 10 and 33 this time …

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/06/2019 at 22:21

    Yep scored about the same
    Jelly as capt.
    Happy.
    10 wins
    Made up the ground I lost last week
    Traded shocker for fyfe.
    Kept Walsh.
    If rooks named should get 18 on deck
    Happy.
