SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 14

Published by Kev on

Worst. Round. Ever. Rest assured that I was on the internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout the world.

Round 14 is finally the end of this tortuous 3-week period known as the byes, but more importantly it’s the last of three trades in a week. Take advantage of this if you can and cut any dead wood in your side. Start thinking of having mid/fwd and def/mid swings in place for when the inevitable late year ‘general soreness’ hits and trades are either gone or at a premium. 

With two thirds of the comp now off their bye there’s a heap of premium options available for pick up. Which ones do we target? Well Patch, Damo, and Lek dived right in on the podcast this week to find ours and yours best options on each line. Snaring a late season rookie for much needed cash gen is a huge advantage now, keep tabs on who is dominating at the lower level with Barron’s Around the Grounds. Get your all important captain fix with Damo and don’t forget to get Statty’s beautiful looking cheat sheet into ya. 

The News

For tonight, the Eagles have made six changes to the side that was humbled by Sydney in round 12. Shannon Hurn and Elliot Yeo are the big name inclusions, and there’s a debut for Jarrod Cameron (MID/FWD – 117.3k). Josh Rotham and Willie Rioli are among the outs. Essendon are replacing the injured Jake Stringer with Mitch Brown.  

JPK returns for the Swans tonight and the Hawks have recalled Jarryd Roughead after a few weeks in the twos. Ben ‘Pinchy’ Stratton misses with suspension and Tom McCartin has been dropped. Does this set things up for a Buddy classic? 

No change for Freo on Saturday arvo against the Dees. Jake Lever is injured again as is Michael Hibberd. While Jay Lockhart gets a timely recall to help those def/mid benches. St. Kilda coach, Alan Richardson, has finally finished his rebuild of Dan Hannebery’s legs and he’ll make his club debut. Jake Carlisle will also make his first appearance for the year. Brisbane have dropped Archie Smith among three changes, Allen Christensen will play his first game since round 5. Port Adelaide have gone whack! Dropping Paddy Ryder, Justin Westhoff, and Sam Powell-Pepper for their clash against the Cats. Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert makes their returns. Charlie Dixon has been resurrected yet again and will line up at full-forward. Joel Garner (DEF – 123.9k) will play his second game. Geelong have replaced the injured Esava with Darcy Fort (RUC – 117.3k), who is on the bubble.     

There’ll be at least 4 changes between the Dogs and the Pies on Sunday. Libba and bubble boy Ryan Gardner are out for the Dogs, as is Bailey Dale. Jaidyn Stephensen is out for Collingwood. There are three new names on team sheets. Rhylee West (MID – 117.3k), Max Lynch (RUC – 123.9k), and Isaac Quaynor (DEF – 153.3k) 

The House of Evil

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

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

Can I go now? (Trade bait)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

As our teams reach full premium and we set up for the run home, you absolutely want the the best midfielder and probably a top 5 player overall in your team at the end of the year. That man is Lachie Neale and you need to get him in your side if you don’t already. At 578k this is the cheapest he’s been at all year, which is remarkable considering he started the year priced at 607k. He’s had a few “quiet” weeks has Lachie, but you can’t keep a guy averaging 123 down for long. With Brisbane pushing for a top 8 berth he’ll be a big part of that.  

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

From a fantasy point of view Port Adelaide’s moves at the selection table made this slate a lot more spicier. Only .8 separates these two sides in points for after 12 rounds, while Port concede an average of 34DS more per game. It should be a fairly even contest.


All three rucks are in play tonight and all three have RUC/FWD status. I suspect the solo rucking Scott Lycett (FWD – 10.2k) to be most popular, while Darcy Fort (FWD – 6.4k) should have no problems hitting value if he can hit the scoresheet. This makes Rhys Stanley (FWD – 11.4k) a contrarian play. Rhys has shown a hundred upside twice this year  and with multiple 15k studs available in the midfield, he is not a bad play if you want to make your lineup a bit different.


Both these sides are fairly stingy in limiting opposition defenders. Looking right down the bottom of the list, Joel Garner (5.7k) had 11 kicks and 5 marks in his debut, if he can back that up he is a 10x value pick. Dan Houston (11.1k) and Xavier Duursma (MID – 11k) are in great touch, in games where Duursma has 5 or marks he’s gone 71, 102, 90, 84, 99, 97, 86. Tom Stewart (13.3k) is Mr. Consistency but his lack of ceiling puts me off him. 


Robbie Gray (MID – 10.8k) is way too cheap for mine. He should stay in the midfield rotations even with Wines back. Port have largely been solid against key forwards this year, but have given up recent three figure scores to Jesse Hogan and Jack Gunston. Tom Hawkins (11.1k) has kicked 20.4 in his past 5 and is priced well if you think he can get on top of Port Adelaide’s defence. Patrick Dangerfield (MID – 15.4k) is always in play, his record at Adelaide Oval is stuff of legends. Averaging 124 in his past 5 at the venue. Brad Ebert (MID – 13k) returns tonight and was in pretty good touch before his injury. 


Port’s midfield is all over the shop this week, decoding that will go a long way towards nailing your midfield picks. They have also given up some huge totals to opposition mids this year, and my game script is that Geelong should put the Power away tonight. Tim Kelly (14.9k) is a freak with a huge ceiling, as is Mitch Duncan (15k). Like Danger, Travis Boak (15.4k) has a brilliant record at Adelaide Oval this year, averaging 119DS. He’s been named on the ball alongside Wines. Karl Amon (9.6k) is still a good value pick if you really want to cram in as many studs as you can. 


TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 10:35

Hey Kev, another great write up once again.

Got 4 options this week, would love some feedback! Thinking Duursma – D Clarke is a no brainer so each option includes it. Let me know if i'm wrong?

Got 12 trades left. Can post my team upon request. Sorry if its confusing!

1. Walsh, Parker – Treloar, TKelly

2. Parker – TKelly

3. ROB, Walsh – Neale and Lloyd/TKelly

4. Walsh – Neale (wouldnt need to downgrade)

Cheers fellas!

    BrownlowBoy · 20/06/2019 at 11:36

    3. Get Neale and Timmy Kelly in ASAP.

    More points on field.

    SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 11:38

    Cheers, Tommy. Agree on option 4, but option 1 has merit too. I think Neale's b.e is around his average this week, so if he doesn't go mental against the Saints his price won't move a lot

      TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 12:07

      Cheers Kev! 1 and 4 are my two most preferred options at this stage, It basically comes down to whats a bigger priority, punting Parker or getting Neale?

      ALso if you are to pick option 4, would you do the downgrade too? Or just hold out?

        SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 14:49

        Yeah, I’d still do it. Clarke looking like a high scoring rook, you don’t let guys like that pass

Tiger · 20/06/2019 at 10:53

4 is the best option. Rob still has more money to make, then grab whoever you need.

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 11:06

    Thanks mate! As a pies man im thinking about Treloar as a POD to move up the ranks, but is Neale a must own?

Wayne King · 20/06/2019 at 10:53

Trade out Gibbons or Stocker for D Clarke, Gibbons generates more money but could still make more and is playing while Stocker is injured but could come back and make more money. Have enough cash to still do 2 upgrades elsewhere trading either out.

    SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 11:40

    Stocker still 2-3 weeks away according to injury report. I'd give Gibbons the flick if you have him on field, Stocker if both are on your bench

      Wayne King · 20/06/2019 at 12:50

      Good advice, cheers

Sarah · 20/06/2019 at 10:57

In: Neale, Treloar, Logue
Out: Duursma, Drew, Walsh

Time to make some moves but have had to be tactical to get Treloar, can afford any mid up to 560k but need the cash for future weeks, my rookies are dire!

    JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 00:10

    Looks like good trades Sarah, I'll probably be moving Drew and Walsh on in the next few weeks.

hedski · 20/06/2019 at 11:10

If the Hoff doesn't come back next week I'm in big trouble, fwd bench is Gardener and Young……
Cheers again Kev.

    SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 11:42

    I'm filthy Hoff is out, hedski. With Dead Man Dixon back at CHF Hoff would've been free to roam up the ground. Bloody Ken!!

      hedski · 20/06/2019 at 13:15

      Yeah it hurts Kev.
      Not sure if I should go ahead and get Neale and pray Hoff is back next week or waste a trade upgrading him and miss Neale.
      Doing my head in.

        SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 14:52

        I’ve been close to cutting him anyway, but I’ll hold this week. Sights set on Ziebell after his bye

DavidC · 20/06/2019 at 11:35

Rotham's ownership is at 11.8% and still people are going early on Naish/Logue. Might wait one more week. I've already got Mr Hinge on my defensive bench.

    SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 14:54

    Logue is safe. Replaced Pearce who is done for the year. I’d wait on Naish though, Short could be back round 15

      Dylan · 20/06/2019 at 15:37

      I do t think Short coming back effects him, as he’s been playing more half forward from what I’ve seen

        Dylan · 20/06/2019 at 15:38


          Brn · 20/06/2019 at 17:19

          I know its wrong but im downgrading to naish anyway. Have duursma as cover back there and upgrades must be made. Ranked highly so maybe not suggesting for all

Pranav · 20/06/2019 at 11:54

Lloyd ryan williams Hore Smith answerth (burgees Gardner)
Fyfe Cripps macrae taranto brouch dusty walsh libba (stocker baker bewley)
Gawn Grundy (ROB)
Dunkley Kelly danger boak daniel heeney (young bines)
16 trades left and 111k in the bank
What should I do

    SC_Kev7 · 20/06/2019 at 14:55

    What moves you got in mind mate?

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 17:28

      Asking what should i do makes it a bit hard and at the least wont get you many replies.

      Love the forward line. Its complete.

      Hate the backline. Answerth has to go soon.

      Midfield is unique but pretty average. Libba and baker are the priorities there- not so much Walsh given your position. B crouch could be an alright keeper after all.

      All things considered, you need cash. Baker out this week is the only certainty. Trade him to clarke and see what else you can do. If you come up with some potential moves let us know. Goodluck mate

        Brn · 20/06/2019 at 18:07

        Just realised that you would likely have the melbourne baker, so scrap that. Really need to generate cash by downgrading

        Pranav · 20/06/2019 at 20:19

        Happy with rucks and forward line. Extremely light down back and lack those Uber premos in midifield. Thinking libba walsh and smith to Clarke Stewart and neale

      Pranav · 20/06/2019 at 20:17

      Planning on libba walsh and smith to Clarke Stewart and neale

Harvey · 20/06/2019 at 11:55

bont worthy selection over Neale? The 50k saved may be the difference in affording Lloyd next week

    Brn · 20/06/2019 at 17:31

    I like merrett more. Bont was the bomb earlier in the year, but his most recent form – even with libba out – is underwhelming for a super prem.

    I still rate him on par with gaff! And ge really foes play better at marvel so the potential is there

CalebCripps922 · 20/06/2019 at 12:04

Walsh to

    redherringfc · 20/06/2019 at 18:22

    I’m in the same boat and am sold on Merrett. So probably any of the other 3.

Dylan · 20/06/2019 at 12:09

Who would you pick out of Tom Stewart, Sicily and Rich, have to decide between those three for a premium defender

    Rick · 20/06/2019 at 12:42

    Stewart. Most consistent

Nozzy · 20/06/2019 at 12:16

Walsh Rocky and Setterfield to Gaff Clarke and Marshall?


Dave · 20/06/2019 at 12:21

Tossing up whether to trade B.Smith (Adelaide) to either M.walters, C.Daniel or T.Stewart?

Going Stewart will leave me with Hore as D6 and Setter field F6(will be looking to get Hurn in the next few weeks when he drops in price to complete backline)

Going one of the forwards will complete that line but leave Hore as D5 and Naish D6 (again will look to get Hurn in a few weeks).

Currently have gone Walters because I like Freo's run better than the doggies but leaves me with only $2k in the bank… Am happy with Hore being a D6 for the rest of the year once I get in Hurn. My only other upgrade required after that is M8. Will have 10 trades left, $2k in bank. Thoughts?

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 18:00

    I traded Walters in last week and am also keeping Hore as my D6.

      Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:22

      Great call getting Walters last week for 476k John..seems to be delivering the goods nicely

        JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 19:47

        Happy with Walters, Russty, it was just who I used get him in that I stuffed up. I was going to trade out Drew, I could just afford it, but decided I liked his swing, so traded out Billings, who until the previous two weeks had been happy to hold. Drew doesn't look like getting a game soon, still an emergency, so he might end up going next week, since I will need all my rookies playing.

          Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:00

          Don't look back mate, billings could still end up spudding it…he has before plenty of times, that could be his highest score last week of his career ever. Drew could still be a good downgrader for ya to finish your team.

Bob · 20/06/2019 at 12:21

Out smith Scott and Parker in Logie Clarke and boat.

Plan on upgrading Walsh to Neale next week. Any thoughts on this?

RealDealNeale · 20/06/2019 at 12:40

What to do with ROB? He's my current R2 but I had always planned to move up to Gawn

11 trades, 90k bank

DEF: Hurn Lloyd Blakely Hore Smith Williams (Naish, Gardner)
MID: Fyfe Neale Oliver Bont Brayshaw Cripps B.Crouch Duursma (Setterfield Bewley Stocker)
R: Grundy ROB (Bines)
F: Dunkley Kelly Danger Boak DeGoey Marshall (Schultz Young)

Opt 1:
Setterfield > Clarke
Stocker > Hind
ROB > Gawn

Opt 2:
Setterfield > Clarke
Duursma > Macrae

Opt 3:
Setterfield > Clarke

Look at Gawn in a few weeks, and maybe bring in Sloane next week

    Blue · 20/06/2019 at 14:15


Connor · 20/06/2019 at 12:43

Trade ROB? Will free up cash for upgrades over the next few rounds…

Streety · 20/06/2019 at 13:07

Oliver vs Sloane anyone?

    Big G · 20/06/2019 at 13:35

    Sloane proven performer, but Oliver can put out the odd massive score due to being in a dud team.

    James · 20/06/2019 at 13:52


    NoLanguage96 · 20/06/2019 at 16:28


BoltonsBlues · 20/06/2019 at 13:11

Walsh, Libba, Lockhart > Pendles, Oliver and Clarke with 190k still left over so can have pretty much any midfielder i want, ive already got Kelly, Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Macrae

G.C. · 20/06/2019 at 14:16

Got a bit of a conundrum community, and could do with some advice. I've got both Goldy and ROB, and I'm looking to cut one loose this round:

DEF: Hurn, Williams, Sicily, Crisp, Hore, Moore (Answerth, Gardner)
MID: Fyfe, Cripps, Neale, Bont, Oliver, M. Crouch, Walsh (Gibbons, Bewley, Baker)
RUC: Grundy, Goldy (ROB)
FWD: Boak, Kelly, Danger, Marshall, Worpel, Young (Corbett, Bines)

1) Goldy, Walsh, Moore -> Gawn, Lloyd, Clarke + $2,100
2) Goldy, Walsh, ROB -> Gawn, Dunkley, Clarke + $69,800
3) Goldy, Walsh, Moore -> Lloyd, Dunkley, Clarke + $111,000

I'm thinking 1. I know Gawn is so expensive, but his BE is only 109 and he's a SC machine. Dunkley would be nice, but I still don't trust him with Mr. Magnets for the whole season. I can fix the forward line next week, maybe bring in Daniel if I have to.

TBone_9 · 20/06/2019 at 14:47

Gday fellas! Annoyed that Westhoff has been dropped after putting up with his mediocrity since bringing him in. Assuming no carnage at selections tonight I’m thinking Hayes, Stocker and Balta to Clarke, T. Stewart and B. Riach. Riach just as a basement priced mid/fwd swing who has the most Sunday games coming up. Leaves me enough in the kitty to go Duursma up to Sloane next week and B. Smith up to hopefully Laird. Might be a few $ off of getting Laird in which case I’d probably grab L. Weller as a POD. What are everyone else’s plans for this/next week? 🙂

    Derek · 20/06/2019 at 19:02

    Just getting Lloyd and Neale, nothing much really, might help a bit.

NoLanguage96 · 20/06/2019 at 16:27

Libba > Fyfe
B Scott > D Clarke

TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 16:32

Hey fellas, appreciate that help earlier from Kev and BB. Just have one more question. I am aiming to get both Neale and Treloar due to their cheap price tags. I can either go Walsh up to Neale but NOT have the funds to go Parker – Kelly OR Go Walsh – Treloar so i ca do the Kelly trade. Whichever way i go i plan on owning both treloar and Neale eventually anyway!

pat cripps · 20/06/2019 at 16:32

out: setterfield, baker & b smith

clarke, h andrews and c daniel
hind, rampe and marshall
clarke, marshall and rampe

thoughts community ?

    James · 20/06/2019 at 16:49


    Clarke a must have but is marshall and andrews doable?

      pat cripps · 20/06/2019 at 18:38

      yes it is, do you prefer marshall over c daniel ?

        Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:44

        I agree with James Pat, Clarke, Andrews and Marshall…stylin! Andrews is a gun and has a high ceiling, not sure if Rampe can maintain his current numbers and is a bit of a crazy cat.

Steve · 20/06/2019 at 16:48

Struggling to decide between Stewart and Ryan as an upgrade option in defence? Ryan seems to have a higher ceiling but Stewart much more consistent, only one score below 88

    BomberKnighta · 20/06/2019 at 17:20

    Same but i have Sicily in the frame too? Any ideas community? Also Stewart saves coin.

James · 20/06/2019 at 16:49

trade put larkey or setterfield?:

Joe · 20/06/2019 at 16:56

Am I chasing points getting in Walters as my last fwd?

Fwd line is currently: Dunkley, Kelly, Danger, Boak, Heeney, setterfield (young, Moore (hawks)).

Or is C.Daniel, Marshall or another a better pick?

    Joe · 20/06/2019 at 16:59

    Also, would it be better to upgrade young or setterfield? Young to Walters only leaves me with $5k. And will need some $$ to get Hurn in 2 weeks hopefully

      Mick · 20/06/2019 at 17:22

      Personally Daniel or Marshall if I were in your shoes. I’ve ridden the Walters rollercoaster before. Surely teams will start putting some work into him after the month he’s had.

Matthew · 20/06/2019 at 16:57

Logue worth his inflated price?

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:23

    You could afford to have another week's look at him maybe…if he backs up with a good score this week, he'll be the most traded in again next week.

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:42

      Waiting a week is best

    redherringfc · 20/06/2019 at 19:57

    Hopefully, too late to reverse trades for me.

John · 20/06/2019 at 17:57

Trade Schultz to Logue via Gardner and trade Tom Sparrow to Clarke, which leaves me with 14 trades and roughly $50k. And next week downgrade Wilkie to Naish if selected and upgrade Duursma to any premo midfielder


Trade Wilkie to Logue, upgrade Setterfield to Caleb Daniel and complete my fwd line and Sparrow to Clarke. Leaves me with 13 trades and only $1.5k

hedski · 20/06/2019 at 18:25

In no surprise to anyone Gardener has been dropped.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:29

    I thought he might've been the next Balta, score cruddy scores and still get a game and turn it around, guess Bevo isn't as patient as Hardwick.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:47

    It's a shame…how do you play a whole game and only get 3 possessions?…I was a fairly shit player as a young bloke and still got 10 or 15 even when on the bench for half the game.

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:42

      Way too overhyped, mostly due to his price. Shame

        The Ranger · 20/06/2019 at 20:11

        Nice D8

Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 18:27

Hanners in for the Saints woohoo…how the hell does Parker keep getting a game? lol, not complaining though.
Hope Hanners gets through the game ok. Good to see big Jake Carlisle back too, it's been awhile.

    Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:41

    Here comes the late bolter that is hanners. If he kills it things will get interesting

      Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:05

      Yeah mate…could be an easy upgrade if he delivers the next 2 weeks, from a spuddy or injured rookie.

Sam_01 · 20/06/2019 at 18:35

How long is the Sav out for down at the cattery? Just think Grundy could be a late out

    Sam_01 · 20/06/2019 at 18:55

    Yeah I’m not super concerned I was more just wondering if fort will get a couple of games as I’d be DDP trading to him anyway to make cash

    Saritz · 20/06/2019 at 19:14

    Grundy will play

Mac · 20/06/2019 at 18:49

Tried Walsh, Libba n Mundy to Fyfe, Clarke n Dubkley but am $100 short, Grrrr

Fyfe, Clarke + (Boak, Walters, Daniel or Marshall???)
Dunkley, Clarke + (Boak, Walters, Daniel or Marshall???)

Appreciate some clarity

    Sam_01 · 20/06/2019 at 19:01

    Tough call mate very tough
    Unfortunately you need them both haha I’d probably lean to Fyfe and Boak you know what you are getting, boaks at a good price

      Mac · 20/06/2019 at 19:06

      cheers buddy. That's where I'm starting to lean too. Couldn't believe I missed out on the big 2 by $100. $100 geez. That's probably 1 kick. Spewing I didn't pull the Mundy Dunkley trade last week. Gave him one more n clearly his lunch getting cut by Blakley, Walters n Brewley.

        Mac · 20/06/2019 at 19:15

        another consideration is Dunkley (BE63, +$60k) will potentialy increase by more than Fyfe (BE97,124 n +$13) over next 2 weeks……

Bubz · 20/06/2019 at 18:58

Hey all, really struggling to find what to do with my team. I have 9 trades and 50k, currently think Stack and Setterfield to Bont (?) and Garner via Gardner, however this means I will likely miss on Dunkley unless I sideways trade someone. What should I be doing?

DEF: Lloyd Ryan Sicily Williams Milera Duursma (Gardner Answerth)
MID: Neale Cripps Fyfe Macrae Cogs Sloane M.Crouch Stack (Baker Hately Scott)
FWD: Telly Danger Boak Cameron Heeney Gray (Setterfield Young)

    Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:39

    Stack is due for trading, would continue to hold the sliw burn of the year that is setters (if trades are low he can still make $. Duursma could be worth a trade in

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 19:58

    I'd be trading out Scott for Clarke to start with.

The Mighty Wokkas · 20/06/2019 at 18:59

With one spot remaining in fwd line, do I double downgrade and then upgrade to tkelly or do just one downgrade and bring in Walters, Marshall or Daniel. Keep in mind that my downgrades will be Duursma and stocker, and I already have D Clarke in mid. What do I do? Cheers

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 19:19

    I'd do what you have to do to get Tim Kelly.

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:36

      Its a punt mate but all of walters marshell and daniel could score similarly within context. Dont break the bank for kelly if you are up for a pod

redherringfc · 20/06/2019 at 19:03

Westhoff was meant to cut loose with Dixon back in the team.



    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 19:10

    Just get Lycett in mate, he has had 3 good weeks out of the last 4, and now he's the main ruck.
    I had FK-Hoff in there too, hoping he could improve, and he did last week, and got dropped…freakin great!
    Another example of a forced trade.

      redherringfc · 20/06/2019 at 19:28

      I got the Hoff last week. 🤪

TheLostBoys · 20/06/2019 at 19:06

With Darcy Fort being named, is it now worth trading Reilly Obrien to Fort? Was planning on holding Obrien for the extra cash he will generate, but if Fort plays for multiple weeks he may generate more. Concerned that Fort may be back out again next week.

    Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:34

    Rob to fort is the most practical trade if you have him

    Tommy · 20/06/2019 at 22:36

    Fort only playing because rat is injured. Will be dropped next week

Lekdog · 20/06/2019 at 19:07

We are live and covering the final bye round plus all of your questions now!

Head here to watch:

Holty01 · 20/06/2019 at 19:10

Hmm after thinking long and hard, I’ve decided to hold off on Merrett and Hurn this week. So I’m going to be selfish and hope Merrett gets the Hutchings tag and Hurn takes it easy after coming back after his hammy. Now I’ve said this, watch them both pump out 150s 🤔

    Sam_01 · 20/06/2019 at 19:16

    Haha I hope hurny takes it easy
    He is my last onfield spot to fill gonna have to wait 2 weeks to find the cash though 🙁

      Holty01 · 20/06/2019 at 19:37

      still a great effort only needing 1 more upgrade.

KSinny · 20/06/2019 at 19:27

Thoughts on going Gibbons to Clarke, Balta to Fort and Walsh to Neale? Leaves me with $229k and 9 trades.

    Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:32

    Will fort be of use to you? If yes get him. Clarke is priority

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:33

      All trades are great if you can properly utilise fort

      KSinny · 20/06/2019 at 19:37

      Probably not as a scoring on field player but Definatly to make money

Stupid Coach · 20/06/2019 at 19:28

Awesome job Kev. I'm panicking at the moment. Who is more important to bring in out of D Clarke or Fort. I could bring them both in but that means I would have to make three trades ( I want to also bring Lloyd in for Duursma or Willie). Leave me with 11 trades which I think is too low at this stage of the season. Help!!!

    Stupid Coach · 20/06/2019 at 19:29


      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:31

      Mate who are you bringing fort in for?
      He is a ruck only.
      Clarke looks the goods mate

        Stupid Coach · 20/06/2019 at 19:43

        Bringing him in for Sweet. Will give me a second ruck with Goldy having the bye this round.

          Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:02

          Wouldn't bring Fort in, dodgy js at best…probably not worth doing really.

Blue · 20/06/2019 at 19:32

Job security of Joel Garner

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 20:11

    Got dropped after 1 week and i thought he played alright that game too so not sure its great. Port also dropped a few guns so wouldnt be surprised if they came straight back in

    silversovereign · 20/06/2019 at 22:13

    Probably the first to go when rocky comes back

    Tommy · 20/06/2019 at 22:35

    Would need to be one of ports best to hold his spot

Browny · 20/06/2019 at 19:32

Neale Or Lloyd the best option??
may be one or the other not sure i will afford both at any point!

    Maverick_ · 20/06/2019 at 19:46

    Lloyd is the must a stand out in DEF a cut above the rest imo, hurn second.
    If you miss Neale still some great options around. Gaff Duncan Merrett Bont macrae

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 19:49

    Agree with Maverick, Lloyd is a must in your back line.

      Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:58

      Hard to go past lloyd. Lots of mids to choose from and neale – as good as he is – is fading a bit. Other mid prems

TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 19:38

Treloar and Kelly


Neale and Marshall/Hawkins

Brn · 20/06/2019 at 19:55

Treloar and kelly because of kelly's ceiling and treloar's ability to go 110+ easily 🙂

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 20:08

    Treloar has an easy next 2 weeks so hoping could gain some rank there. If I go Marshall i miss out on Kelly for the season unless i get an injury and im not sure i can afford to do that. Thinking If Marshall has a stinker against Goldy or Gawn in the next month i could bring him in as an F7 to loop with Jez Cameron towards the end of the season

KSinny · 20/06/2019 at 19:58

Is it worth getting Oliver over Neale to be able to get rid of Brodie smith for Stewart (or a defender $501k or less)?

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 19:58


Dash · 20/06/2019 at 20:04

Steward or Lloyd this week. Have been waiting for Lloyd for so long now – 100k difference.

    Dash · 20/06/2019 at 20:05

    Stewart that should read.

      JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 20:35


    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 00:50

    Can't go wrong with Lloyd Dash.
    Stewart has reached premo this year but not uber premo, lifted his average 16 points per week but Lloyd still has the tendency to go large every week if the circumstances are right.

      Dash · 21/06/2019 at 08:58

      Another one. Looking at Oliver versus Bont for a mid spot this week too. Thoughts?

        JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 11:35


        Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 12:38

        I have both but I'd go Oliver over Bont..just.

KSinny · 20/06/2019 at 20:05

QUICK, which defender for 501k or less???

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 20:07


    in that order

      KSinny · 20/06/2019 at 20:07

      Already got Ryan and sic, Stewart over JJ?

        No idea · 20/06/2019 at 20:09

        yeah I reckon, for consistency

        The Ranger · 20/06/2019 at 20:10

        Stewart for mine

        TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 20:10

        For sure

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2019 at 14:07

      Rampe pod it up

    Jace · 21/06/2019 at 16:33

    I'm trading smith to jj as a pod

The Ranger · 20/06/2019 at 20:09

I just jumped onboard the Billings train.
Never been on it before.

Wish me luck.

    JugHead · 20/06/2019 at 20:50

    Good luck. It's like the train ride at the amusement park. A lot of fun but you need a strong stomach.

      Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:56

      Agree Jughead, he'll either want to laugh uncontrollably or puke after the week's effort lol

        Rick Grimes · 20/06/2019 at 21:32

        Never eat before the Billings ride. Good chance you'll blow chunks. That's when it's not closed for maintenance.

    Swans2012 · 20/06/2019 at 22:11

    Welcome aboard ranger, it’s been a somewhat satisfying journey so far this season

      The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 00:01

      It's a bit of a "going down swinging" sort of move.
      Might not be great in the long run but it could be great every now and then.

Derek · 20/06/2019 at 20:16

Well that stuffed my week up. I have Hurn in my bench

    Derek · 20/06/2019 at 20:17

    Without an E

      JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 20:34

      Did the Thursday night game put you out Derek ? that happened to me once, but I usually have most of the players playing already on the field.

        Derek · 20/06/2019 at 21:07

        I reversed my trades just before the game started. It put Hurn back on bench because he didn’t play last week.

        I realised 1 min after start

        Maybe Hurn will be quiet tonight

          JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 21:37

          Looking at 90-100 at half time. That's a lot of points to miss out on Derek, did you have more than 18 playing at least.

            Derek · 20/06/2019 at 21:58

            no. Will only have 17 now.

            Had Rocky, Libba and Hoff all not playing

              JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 22:44

              Ouch, I thought you would have traded Libba out by now Derek.

                Derek · 20/06/2019 at 23:05

                Libba was my M9, Had Rocky at M8 and I thought the draw looked good to swing the two during the byes and the second half. he was going to get me through round 13 and 14. Gave me a 30 and a see ya later.

                Anyway, Libba and Rocky both out this week for Lloyd and Neale

                  JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 23:11

                  I like those trades a lot Derek.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:27

    What happened this week Derek?…you have a bunch of playing players on the bench not scoring.
    Looks like it's gonna be a disaster score.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 20:40

    Hope all's well mate, and it wasn't some kind of family emergency.

    Derek · 20/06/2019 at 23:06

    I’m pretty much assured to lose all my matches by less than 91 this week

    Holty01 · 20/06/2019 at 23:22

    Damn mate, that sux. Hope you recover

Callum · 20/06/2019 at 20:37

Hind or logue worth going on early?
I never go early but i seriously need money ASAP.
naish isn't playing but am open to trading him in as Its setters making way so he isn't playing anyway.
any advice is always welcome

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 00:49

    Yeah I think it is Callum if you need cash, I was skint this week and wasn't going to trade but ended up trading, now I have 400k in the bank.

      Callum · 21/06/2019 at 07:24

      Would you go hind or naish? what’s Hinds JS like good to see he held his spot with Hannebery back.. short maybe back next week going to affect naish?

        Callum · 21/06/2019 at 07:29

        It would have to be will setterfield or bailey Scott. 80k more from setterfield but lose a DPP and warm body on the bench

    The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 10:43

    I'm banking on Logue taking the place of Pearce so he should have pretty good JS

JugHead · 20/06/2019 at 20:39

He has a bye this week…..but that aside….. any love for Lachie Weller as a value pick def?
473k, DPP, 3 game average 99, 5 game average 95.

    Sam_01 · 20/06/2019 at 20:45

    I like him mate, might be an option for next year I think

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2019 at 14:17

    Picked him up in draft

    Been good dpp a nice little bonus..

    The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 14:21

    Had him in mind for a D7/M9 spot but the way my cash generation is going he'll be too expensive.

the tiprat · 20/06/2019 at 20:59

walters or marshall? need for my last forward spot

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 21:44

    Marshall maybe more chance of finishing the season.

Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 21:10

Looks like Clarke sucks when he's not tagging someone…hoorah!
Hopefully not another spud rookie.
Why isn't Worsfold putting him on someone?…like Yeo or Sheed, or anyone…to get him into the game…sheesh

    Rick Grimes · 20/06/2019 at 21:15

    Yep, just running around the ball but never touching it. Another spud, sadly.

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 21:19

    Thinking woosha might be having a look at who’s the dominant mid to send him too. Although don’t think it takes a half to decide that

    No idea · 20/06/2019 at 21:37

    No shortage of Eagles midfielders finding the ball. What’s Woodha doing??? Time for another coaching change?

      Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 21:51

      Yeah I think Yeo just cracked a ton so why tag him?…good strategy Woosha!

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 21:40

    I feel like I just wasted a trade, I hope he can turn it around in the second half.

Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 21:47

Guelfi will be spewin his George Michael haircut won't get seen on TV for a few weeks…choose life!

Ja191 · 20/06/2019 at 22:27

Clarke has been way better than what he’s scored

Tommy · 20/06/2019 at 22:33

Clarke has lifted in the second half! Hope he holds his spot

Bill · 20/06/2019 at 22:49

Clarke or Marshall <img src="; width="1"/>

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 23:04

    Which Clarke are you talking about?…Marshall regardless.

TommyC99 · 20/06/2019 at 22:57

I’m not an Essendon supporter but I’d be fuming if I was one. Woosha has a bloke off the back of a rising star nomination for his tagging yet lets Sheed, yeo, Shuey, Gaff and Redden all take the absolute p155. The bloke kept arguably the best player in the game Cripps to under 15 touches but Woosha decided not to tag Sheed/Yeo who were incredibly damaging.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 23:02

    Yeah agree Tommy, maybe he just doesn't care much anymore, Woosha seems like a bit of a bitter negative personality these days.
    He could've at least stopped one of those guys!

    JohnDJ59 · 20/06/2019 at 23:21

    You have to wonder what the hell he was thinking, he could have sent Clarke to any of those mids, I would have thought Yeo or Sheed right from the first bounce. If you have a player that can shut down a star midfielder and get the pill himself you use him every time.

    Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 11:13

    Glad it wasn’t yeo 😉

      Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 12:38

      That's a nice start to the week there for you mate.

Russty_ · 20/06/2019 at 23:54

Poor ole Bangladesh, they'll need 22 guys to bat to beat our score lol

    Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 07:34

    Got close.

Ryan · 20/06/2019 at 23:58

Is it worth bringing in Bewley for Gibbons?

    JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 00:14

    Yes, but you really should have made that trade last week.

    Peggi · 21/06/2019 at 08:14

    Better to go early on someone like Hind than pay extra for Bewley

    Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 08:29

    Do you have 18 onfield already? If so maybe wait on hind if it’s not urgent… personally I don’t bring in a rookie after there first price rise if I can avoid it

JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 00:08

What would be a better outcome, getting in Bont and Heeney or just either Parker / Neale. The trades would be Walsh to Bont and Drew to Heeney or just Walsh to Parker or Neale.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 00:41

    Still don't know if Heeney's gonna come good yet John, if he doesn't he's an avoid for me going forward.
    Maybe just the one would be wise this week?..Walsh to Neale, and keep Drew's money banked.

      JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 01:00

      I agree with that assessment Russty, I do like the swing Drew gives me, plus I use him as a loophole with Parker and Petruccelle on the bench. Still not sure about which mid premo to bring in out of those three, Bont could be 100k cheaper than Parker next week, tempted to just leave it till then, see how they go this weekend.

        Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 01:13

        Yeah mate leaving it for another week is also a good option, trades in hand and all that jazz…I needed money this week so I got rid of Walsh etc and banked some coin but I'll need to be careful now as trades are getting low.
        Still think Neale's the best of those 3 though.
        You could also consider Gray, Lycett or Hogan as cheapy fwd options.

          JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 01:26

          Funny you mentioned Lycett, he was my R2 at the start, then I traded in O'Brien in round 5 and traded Lycett out round 7 for a rookie that didn't do much. Looking back I probably should have just kept him as my future F6.

            Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 01:34

            Yeah I remember when you did that, with Ryder and Westy getting dropped Lycett could really shine now, I bit the bullet this week and dumped Westy for Lycett.

              JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 01:46

              Would be good ruck cover as well and he's about the same price as when I traded him out. It was mainly so I could get some cash in the bank at the time, plus Hayes seemed a good rookie, but not to be, I finally traded him out the other week for Bewley.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2019 at 14:13

      Heeney will go bang tonight after a rest.

      If I had JPK be putting the VC around his neck.

      He owns his own pill against the hawks.

    NoLanguage96 · 23/06/2019 at 18:53

    Don't bother with Heeney. I speak as an owner all year

Callum · 21/06/2019 at 08:53

DEF: hurn Ryan williams sicily Smith Rozee (gardner hinge)

MID: Cripps Fyfe Macrae Oliver Treloar M Crouch Walsh Duursma (Scott hind D Clarke)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (fort)

FWD: Dunkley Kelly Dangerfield boak Marshall Heeney (setterfield burgess)

229k 2 trades remain this round .

Option 1 – rozee too Lloyd.

Option 2 – rozee too Neale/Duncan/bont via DPP

Walsh too Sloane is locked in next week
I Am open to waiting for Whitfield to return from injury 560k & 150 BE when is he back?
Love some help I’m not sold on Neale after seeing curnow tag him out last game

    Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 09:21

    Option 2 for me with maybe Neale he can still go HUGE any given day also Zorko is so damaging on the scoreboard he will still get a tag over Neale.
    Then your Sloane move next week.
    And hopefully in 3 weeks you can grab Whitfield by then if back I think he will match Lloyd’s output when fit…

Dash · 21/06/2019 at 08:59

Oliver or Bont this week?

    Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 09:15

    Oliver for me I feel he hasn’t completely fired and still avg 106 at start of the season he was almost a must have at 620k and now only 540k an absolute steal and should be able to take advantage of Melbournes easy draw ahead.

    The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 10:41

    Bugger all in it but Melbourne have a good draw

Dan · 21/06/2019 at 09:40

I was wondering which you think is the better option:

Trade Goldy to Gawn (meaning I will hopefully get to a side with no more rookies on field in round 17, with 4 trades left for carnage/finals).

OR Trade in Brayshaw or R Gray (meaning I will hopefully get to a side with no more rookies on field in round 16, with 6 trades left. But still be fielding Goldy instead of Gawn).

    The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 10:40

    Depends on your league position but I'd rather have the 6 trades left.

    Rick · 21/06/2019 at 10:43

    Upgrade rookies first, then worry about Goldy

James · 21/06/2019 at 09:53

Stuck between these two trades need some advice PLEASE !! Do I trade trade Schultz to Logue via Gardner which leaves me with 14 trades and roughly $50k. And next week downgrade Wilkie to Naish if selected and upgrade Duursma to any premo midfielder OR downgrade Wilkie to Logue this week and upgrade Setterfield to Caleb Daniel (leaves me with 13 trades and $1.5k) to finish my forward line?

Def: Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Sicily, Hore, Wilkie EMG: Answerth, Gardner

Mid: Fyfe, Cripps, Macrae, Cogs, Treloar, B Crouch, Stack, Duursma EMG: O.Baker, Bewley, Clarke

Ruck: Gawn, Grundy EMG: Sweet

Fwd: Dunkley, Kelly, Danger, Boak, Heeney, Setterfield EMG: Young, Schultz

The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 10:50

Take Clarkes 59 or run with Bewley and Answerth onfield?
Tempted to take the 59 and drop Answerth to the pine.
Got 20 playing so it might not matter but I've had plenty of scores lower then 59 this year…

    Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 11:00

    I’d take it over Answerth

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 12:39

    Taking 59's better than risking a 25 or 30 I reckon Ranger.

The Ranger · 21/06/2019 at 12:04

Leaning that way Neil….watch Answerth ton up this week….

RealDealNeale · 21/06/2019 at 12:58

1 trade made thus far – Setters to Clarke. At the moment I have 10 trades and will be coming out of the bye with Hore, Duursma (mid) & ROB as my only rookies on field, if I hold for the rest of the round.

Which option looks best:

1. Duursma > Macrae

2. Stocker & ROB > Hind & Gawn

3. Hold this week. Get Sloane next week for Duursma. Wait for ROB to fatten up for Gawn in a few weeks

TelescopicCox · 21/06/2019 at 13:08

1 trade left this round. 10 overall. Below is how I'll look coming out of the bye

Backs: Lloyd, Crisp, Hore, Williams, Duursma, Wilkie (Naish, Gardner)
Mids: Fyfe, Neale, Macrae, Danger, Treloar, Kelly, Cripps, M.Crouch (Baker, Bewley, Clarke)
R: Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
Fwd: Dunkley, Kelly, Boak, Cameron, Heeney, Begley (Burgess, Young)

OPT 1: Duursma > Oliver (DPP Burgess down back, Danger up FWD). Wilkie to a premo DEF next week
OPT 2: Duursma > Andrews. Wilkie to Sloane next week.

    TelescopicCox · 21/06/2019 at 13:27

    I've crunched the numbers and either way I'm stuck with a rookie on field, unless I sacrifice a higher end premo. Which combo on field?

    1. Sloane, Andrews & Logue
    2. Oliver, Laird & Naish
    3. Brayshaw, Hurn & Naish

      Ja191 · 21/06/2019 at 13:41


Ned_Starkers · 21/06/2019 at 14:03

Trades done for this round, 9 left for the season…
Def: Hurn, Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Duursma, Logue, Naish, Burgess
Mid: Cogs, Cunners, Cripps, Macrae, Fyfe, Oliver, BCrouch, Clarke, Setterfield, Answerth
Ruck: Gawn, Grundy, O’Brien
Fwd: Dunkley, Danger, Kelly, Boak, Billings, Heeney, Baker, Bines

Still some work to do, but if I get lucky will use 4 trades to complete:
Baker, Duursma, Drew and O’Brien to Neale, Ryan, Stewart and a non playing dpp Rookie probably. Doesn’t leave me the best bench cover week to week though.

Any thoughts or better options to consider?

    JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 17:04

    You have a midfielder missing in your line up, I'm assuming that it's Drew, I like who you are targeting, but like you said the bench cover will be a bit thin. You could always swing Dunkley or Kelly into your mids and trade in Walters, so you have a mid/fwd swing set.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2019 at 14:15

I assume the VC is play for most?

That is one thing the byes are good for provide a number of C options if your VC gets the job done..

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/06/2019 at 16:02

    Probably going Gawn into Dangerfield this week. Pretty safe bet. Cheers Trigga!

Beezneez · 21/06/2019 at 14:56

1 trade left this week after Walsh to Neale. 11 trades left. Torn between M Parker to Marshall to complete fwd line but with Young and Burgess/Gardner on the bench and $14k left …or
Don't do this trade and Duursma to Hurn next week. Def would then be Hurn Laird Williams B Smith Lloyd and Hore with Naish and Burgess/ Gardner on the bench ….or
Do the Paker to Marshall trade and next week B Smith to Logue and Duursma to Hurn leaving 8 trades and $40k. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Beezneez · 21/06/2019 at 15:10

    Ps just realised I could see how Logue goes prior to the St.Kilda game to see if it would be worth trading B Smith to him next week. My priority is to get in Hurn and a straight swap to Duursma will save two trades but also pick up Marshall.

      JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 15:16

      Go with that.

COREYSC · 21/06/2019 at 15:52

How are we going this week community?
How many players do we have available?

    Derek · 21/06/2019 at 15:58

    I would have had 18 if I didn’t have Hurn in my bench last night.

    As a result only have 17, not bad considering I have Rocky, Libba, Gardner and Westhoff to deal with.

    Amateur mistake last night though and will hurt in a few must win league games.

    KSinny · 21/06/2019 at 16:08

    19 this week, after doing 3 trades tho

      COREYSC · 21/06/2019 at 17:54

      After trades I’ll have 18 but only 17 if Dangerfield doesn’t play……

    Rocksta_ · 21/06/2019 at 19:02

    19, but 18 if Danger misses. I do have one trade up my sleeve if push comes to shove. Can go from Smith to Stewart but am low on trades and want to get to full Premo before upgrading Smith. Decisions Decisions. I’m only really interested in Rank this year so may go for it.

      Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 19:45

      Same situation rocksta, will use the smith trade if I must!

        Rocksta_ · 21/06/2019 at 19:52

        Good Luck mate. It’s a hard one

TommyC99 · 21/06/2019 at 16:37

Hey guys I posted this last night but probably posted it at a bad time, so thought I’d try again. Got a few spots left in my mids and 1 spot left in my fwd

Treloar and Tkelly


Neale and Marshall/Hawkins

    TelescopicCox · 21/06/2019 at 16:41

    That's tough. I like Treloar & Kelly but only just

    Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 17:48

    2nd choice for me.

      Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 19:05

      I like the 2nd option Tommy.
      I'm a treloar owner and I don't wish it upon my worst enemy to have to own him. his usually on 40 at 3QT and manages a 50 pt last quarter to get 90ish with 40 touches and 35% DE. please lock in neale

        TommyC99 · 21/06/2019 at 19:11

        Haha appreciate the response Mav. Only issue is that this is my last fwd upgrade so going with Neale means i miss out on Tim Kelly unless i get an injury. Would you still do it?

          Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 19:30

          could you make sloane/kelly happen? otherwise i'd go treloar and kelly you can't afford to miss Tim up fwd Tommy. you say you have a couple mid spots left so you can get neale later anyway he just won't be at his bargain price of 570k is all…

            TommyC99 · 21/06/2019 at 21:21

            Thanks mav, I haven’t actually really thought about Sloane. As a pies man I have just been big on Treloar due to his price tag and me wanting another pies player in, but what is not ideal is the fact he can have 38 touches in a win and still not Ton up. Got a soft draw next 3 weeks but then has giants, tigs and eagles. Sloane has the ceiling to go large by as he has the bye this week if he fielding Oskar baker over him. Decisions decisions…

dontblushbaby · 21/06/2019 at 16:51

Buddy is tempting with the Swans draw coming up – Hawks,Gold Coast,Freo and Carlton

    Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 19:20

    Great F7

Stupid Coach · 21/06/2019 at 16:55

I have used one trade so far to bring in Dylan Clarke. Which of the following is the best option for this week:

Option 1 – Duursma to Lloyd. Leaves me with 12 trades but not enough cash to trade Walsh to Neale.
Option 2 – Duursma to Lloyd and Walsh to Treloar, Walters or Henderson. Leaves me with 11 trades.
Option 3 – Option 1 and try to get Neale in next week (will have to burn two trades to do so).

Thanks community.

KSinny · 21/06/2019 at 17:06

Smith to Stewart is pretty obvious but tempted to go either Rampe or JJ as a POD

    KSinny · 21/06/2019 at 17:07

    Oh wait I can't afford Rampe…

      Brn · 21/06/2019 at 17:28

      Stewart a pretty good pod still

    Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 18:02

    I’d be going JJ before Stewart.. much higher ceiling and outperformed Stewart over the past 4 weeks ..,

Lekdog · 21/06/2019 at 17:20

You bloody good writer you Kev xo

James · 21/06/2019 at 17:28

Caleb Daniel or Rowan Marshall to finish my forward line?

    Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 19:19


Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 17:45

FYI – Danger didn’t fly to Adelaide.. not to say he won’t , but he hasn’t gone with the team .. might want to rethink the ‘VC’ option

TelescopicCox · 21/06/2019 at 17:54

Passing on Oliver for a 20k discount on Sloane, for a better defender.

Best sub 500k def to bring in? Sicily, Andrews, Rich, Stewart or JJ?

Other option is to rely on Garner getting another game next week and going Oliver this week, Laird next

    Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 19:47

    Sicily then rich then Stewart for me

COREYSC · 21/06/2019 at 17:58

I’ve bailed on trading in Sloane next week just going to play the
Long game and not Push too hard too early, just downgrade the rookies to Rookies on the bubble rather then going early on a Hind, Garner or Stein and just playing the long game!

TOPHAWK1 · 21/06/2019 at 18:18

Danger to miss. His wife is having a baby. That leaves me with 18 fit players now. One more late out and its time to go to 7 Eleven to grab myself a Krispy Kreme donut.

    TommyC99 · 21/06/2019 at 18:28

    You sure hes gonna miss TH? I heard hes just on a later flight

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/06/2019 at 18:32

      I hope I am wrong but the guy that told me very rarely gets it wrong. I am praying he does play mate. Hoping for a miracle.

    Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 19:48

    It's just a bloody baby. They'll be others. Danger will be just be resting around the forward line anyway, his missus won't miss him.

Josh · 21/06/2019 at 18:21

Stuck on trades for the week
1. Bont and Logue
2. Oliver and Logue
3. Neale and Naish
4. Neale and Garner
Leaning towards 1 or 3 but I'm worried about Naish's job security

Nick · 21/06/2019 at 18:48

Do you guys reckon Rampe is worth his current price of is he just on a good run but likely to end the season scoring in the low 90’s. Has his role ie the swans structure changed ????

Need to know before tonight’s game as may bring him in.

    Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 19:50

    Seems a risk. Avoid

Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 19:23

Have just over 20 mins to decide whether to VC Lloyd into Gawn… else Gawn into Dunkley… thoughts?

    JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 19:27

    Lloyd into Gawn for me.

    Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 19:47

    Gawn definitely. Think he'll go huge. I'm not sure Lloyd racks em up tonight. Will go 100+, but not 140. That's my vibe. So id go other way.

    Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 19:51

    Thanks guys, appreciate the input… stuck with the Gawn into Dunkley..

Finnius · 21/06/2019 at 19:49

Sicily looks like he is starting forward…

    Lazza · 21/06/2019 at 19:52

    Good… he will be even cheaper next week

    Tommy · 21/06/2019 at 19:52

    Won’t last long. Not sure what Clarko is thinking

    Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 19:59

    3 or 4 snags and then switch down back for a few intercept marks to ensure he tons up would be tasty..

Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 19:52

I have ummed and aahed over buddy all week. So cheap and so tasty draw. Reckon he'll kick 5. But just couldnt do it.

Brn · 21/06/2019 at 19:56

What sort of stupid 'secret weapon' is playing sicily up forward so he doesn't get a touch? Geez

    Brn · 21/06/2019 at 19:58

    Ok he kicked a goal as i typed this. But he is still a defender ffs. Roughie being back should be enough

      Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 20:12

      Yep it's crazy. Don't own him but I'd be filthy if I did.

        Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:31

        He is all australian def. He is a very baaad fwd. We have been here clarko

          Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 20:43

          Painful to watch

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 20:48

    He'll be lucky to get to 50 the way this is going so far, good call Clarko!!

Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 20:13

Heeney could go huge. Tackling anything that moves and looks very frisky.

    Derek · 21/06/2019 at 21:11

    Roughy got him, probably a corked thigh, has slowed him down a fair bit.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:57

    I think he's destined to be Mr 90 this year Rick Grimes…could do worse I guess?

      KSinny · 22/06/2019 at 00:02

      Only 69% TOG

      JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 00:10

      For his price he could still be a good F6, his score tonight hasn't helped me decide one way or the other.

    Yeahnah · 22/06/2019 at 00:43

    Could’ve gone big, seems like he gets a knock every game.

Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:13

Lets put the player that gives away the most frees for no reason up fwd so he can screw things up more. Booldy clarkson im out.

Browncow · 21/06/2019 at 20:14

“He’s a player weird stuff happens around” – James Brayshaw talking about Sicily after another free kick against

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:58

    Yeh normally cause he's the guy making the weird shit happen.

Maverick_ · 21/06/2019 at 20:26

both teams all players warmed up in number 37 in respect of adam goodes for the racial bullying to show there support, wow.
Racism certainly isn't tolerated in our game or society and I am dead against any form of racism but i think there was more to the goodes booing than just about his skin colour by the end of his career… you don't see any of the other indigenous players being booed? my goodness adam

    Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 20:29

    Yea true. I think he played the racist card when in fact people just didn't like him. That's not say he didn't cop racist sh1t, but you're right, it's not the only factor at play.

    Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:29

    Be careful. Any form of freedom of speech is being ridiculed these days. Im with you 100 percent. I booed Goodes and would boo him again until behavioural control bastards kick me out.

      Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 20:34

      Would you though, if you know now the effect it was having on him? As a swan supporter I didn’t always love the way he went about things, but I think we are better than sticking it to someone when we know it’s effecting they’re mental state

        Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 20:44

        That's also true. No one can know the mental state of another if they keep it to themselves. I guess he had a choice to tone it down of ramp it up. But yes, sad to hear how badly affected he was.

    Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 21:52

    So you’d boo him again knowing it’s affecting his mental state?? I struggle with this… but agree he’s played the racist card when it’s unnecessary

      Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 22:44

      Hey Swanny. No I wouldn’t boo him now as I am aware of the troubles he had.

    JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 22:06

    I never booed him, I didn't have a problem with him and if I had been a Swans supporter I wouldn't have liked the treatment that was dished out to him, plus it wasn't just every now and then, at the end it was nearly all the time. I might boo Ablett due to him wanting to take players heads off lately and Sicily for being a flog, but it wouldn't be nearly half the crowd like it was for Goodes, it was clearly racist.

      No idea · 21/06/2019 at 22:42

      I've never booed Goodes, though I disliked him because he became a sooky sooky la-la towards the end of his career, and because he seemed to be a protected species; getting easy free kicks by diving. Don't care if he's black, brown, yellow, pink or fluorescent purple. Playing the victim at the end was rich and pulling out the race card just confirmed what many thought- he began to act like a flog and was treated accordingly.

      Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 22:42

      Hey John. If it was racist, why was he the only indigenous player booed? However, For those who booed him because they were racist, it was disgusting. And as what Swanny said, I would boo him when he WAS playing but no one knew at the time of his troubles. And no, I would not boo him after all of this.
      But if we have a problem with booing 1 person, we can’t as a society single that 1 person out, it has to be done for everyone. And once that happens, will over celebrating as a supporter be banned because it might upset some players? I know this would be extreme but it is a fine line we tread as a society these days.

        JohnDJ59 · 21/06/2019 at 23:02

        I think the fact that the the booing was the most vocal I have ever heard a player cop and not just one game where two rival teams are playing, but nearly every game he played in the end, that says to me that it wasn't just normal barracking, but a very racist undertone. As for celebrating, that's about cheering your team on, waving a flag, jumping up and down, not abusing people.

          Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 23:16

          I think we will end this conversation here. You thought the booing was racist, I thought it was because of other things.
          In the end, we should be celebrating the champion he was with the football in hand, not the person he is perceived to be off the field.

          Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 23:23

          It did get extreme toward the end, but I have to say at games I think it was mostly the sheep mentality of opposition supporters, rather than a racial undertone. Any racial element is disgusting, but I’m not convinced it was 100% the main cause.

          No idea · 21/06/2019 at 23:27

          Not sure why the volume of a crowd response in any way is indicative of racism; that's just illogical.
          A negative crowd response at recurrent games also is not indicative of racism (just ask Steve Smith or Davy Warner).

        Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 23:13

        For the record I agree with you mostly holt, I think it was a minority racially aboosing Goodes, but to him I think mentally it turned into a majority. Surely we must be allowed to boo. I should have assumed you didn’t mean you would boo him now but that was exactly what Brn was saying and it offended me.
        Also, Aboosing should be a word…..

          Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:16

          You know you can edit your posts before they're replied to right Swanny?….although I have now replied so you can't…Aboosing should be a word haha

            Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 23:25

            youve lost me rust, what should I have edited?

              Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:38

              Aboosing Swans…Gosh!….what do you think?…(Napoleon Dynamite) 😉

            Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 23:27

            Aboosing, love it. I’m going to write to Wikipedia and ask them to add it.

              Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:39

              You don't have to write to Wikipedia Holty, you just have to add it, whether it's correct or not hahah

      Yeahnah · 22/06/2019 at 00:41

      The fact that he started getting booed as soon as he stood up for himself and pointed out someone calling him a monkey says it all. Clearly racist. Deadset cannot believe some people still say to this day that they would boo Goodes if he was still playing.

    Wedge · 21/06/2019 at 23:38

    Adam goodes didn't ask every player to warm up in 37. Why would you say my goodness Adam?

      Wedge · 21/06/2019 at 23:41

      And I'll reply to myself. Adam rarely ever had any input to the media coverage of himself but everyone acted like he was writing the articles or paying for comments when most of the time he just played footy and got booed. (only booed in his last two years) the previous 300 games of people not booing were glorious to watch

        JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 00:20

        It got quite nasty in the end, I can't remember any other player singled out like Goodes was and I've been following footy since 1971.

        Sharkmove_King · 22/06/2019 at 10:19

        Agree with Wedge here fellas. He also didn't nominate himself for Australian of the Year either.

      Yeahnah · 22/06/2019 at 00:42

      Heard this a lot about the documentary as well. Pretty sure it wasn’t his idea to make it?

    redherringfc · 22/06/2019 at 09:04

    I hate the swans and I disliked certain aspects of the way Goodes played football. But the man is a true champion (Not even thinking about his football)

    The booing of him was racist. There might have been some people who did it thinking they weren’t racist and there were a lot of people who claim they weren’t racist in doing it, but they were.

    He was booed, because he is an incredibly proud indigenous man who stood up to racism and a lot of people didn’t like him being confrontational in doing it.

    It was a disgusting period in football.

Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 20:29

I know Clarko is struggling to find a forward line to kick winning scores but surely he now realises he has no one to bring the ball out of defence without Sicily. This is strange from a coach who I feel is pretty damn good.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 20:54

    Maybe he was good Holty, looks like he's lost the plot now. Should've put him back in defence after the 1st quarter.

      Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:55

      He is a tool.

        Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:56

        Its weird that us as mere supercoach observers seem to know a lot more than their coach about their team. Bloody ridiculous.if he is any coach at all sicily will play hb the rest if game

    Derek · 21/06/2019 at 21:06

    Sicily was never a good forward.

    He was even dropped a few times in 2017 playing as a forward

    He is a good defender, get him back there

      Steeeve · 21/06/2019 at 21:16

      I brought him in for Whitfield and it's the worst move I've made all year. If he's gonna stay forward I'll trade him straight back out for Hurn. Two wasted trades but I don't care. Better off having Hire at D6 than Sicily the forward.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:29

    Now the flog just gives away 2 frees in 2 minutes…bloody brilliant!

    Yeahnah · 22/06/2019 at 00:46

    They may as well bring in the young fellas like Nash and Jackson Ross now their season is pretty much done.

hedski · 21/06/2019 at 20:29

Well Clarko is tanking

    MRB · 22/06/2019 at 11:21

    Now fine them the $500,000 grand they clearly deserve to have stolen from them like the AflogL did to Melbourne.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:04

      That's a bit harsh MRB, that's 500 million bucks 😉

Brn · 21/06/2019 at 20:52

19 on field and sicily, who as a premium wont register.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:14

    Yeah right?!…most of our rookies will probably beat his score this week…. FFS

HarryH76 · 21/06/2019 at 20:54

I had a choice for an upgrade earlier in the year between Hurn and Sicily. I chose Sicily. Obviously nailed that one!!!

    Sam_01 · 21/06/2019 at 20:58

    Don’t see clarko putting him back this game either 🙁

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:05

    I brought him in a few weeks ago Harry…real happy with that.

Great fact hunt · 21/06/2019 at 21:33

For all us Sicily owners. Keep going as you are son. The worse you play the less time forward hopefully. Short term pain for long term gain.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:35

    Yeah he's absolutely killing it as a forward, shame the Coach can't see that.
    Hey GFH, how come you gave up on the PGA Fantasy?…it's the last leg of the season.

      Great fact hunt · 22/06/2019 at 06:31

      Went away for a few weeks and lost a bit of interest because did not have much internet accessIt is a bit same same every week with that fantasy. Good luck with the last leg.

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:32

        Fair enough mate, It is a bit same same every week now unfortunately, it was different last year but they changed the scoring system, it used to be much easier to get ahead because if you picked the winner or runner up in a Tournament, you got like an extra 200 points, now you could pick the winner and runner up and get the same points as someone who finished 10th.
        I missed the first Tournament this year and have struggled ever since to catch up to the top 10.

Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:51

I can't afford to trade Sicily now, not enough trades for any luxuries, I'm stuck with the fwd flog, thought he was a bargain but he'll be a real bargain in a few weeks!

    Jace · 21/06/2019 at 22:05

    As a non owner of Sicliy I'm happy will be very cheap soon, but will probably still not get him in.
    He is a FLOG

      Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 22:06

      Clarkson more so.

        Great fact hunt · 22/06/2019 at 06:32


    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 10:23

    I am not happy either Russsty. As you know, I have Sicily too and am spewing about that massive turd he dropped last night. But its not really entirely his fault. Clarko is in pull blown panic mode as the hawks are cratering mate. Sicily is a pawn in Clarko's game of panic chess and is totally confused about his role in that side now. I am stuck with Sicily too for the remainder of the season. We just have to hope Clarko comes to his senses and plays Sicily down back. Thats where he plays his best footy.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:39

      Yeah bud hopefully after analysing the game, he'll come to his senses, he wasn't very effective as a forward at all, if he continues playing him there, he really has lost the plot.

Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 21:57

Bad luck Patch bringing Franklin in this week.

    COREYSC · 21/06/2019 at 22:26

    Yeah what a shame for Patchy boy

Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 22:00

Won't have to worry about taking Sicily's score this week as I have 21 on….LOL…(and crying at the same time)

    COREYSC · 21/06/2019 at 22:27

    Shattered mate all the time we were debating Ryan or Sicily and we chose Sicily for consistency and now he plays forward what a game we play

      Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 22:32

      Surely this is his last week forward….

      Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 22:33

      Yeah it's not good Corey…he was an intercepting defender and playmaker and now he's a frustrated forward who doesn't get much of it and gives away free kicks, some wise heads warned against getting him in earlier in the season I remember, should've listened.

        COREYSC · 22/06/2019 at 00:02

        It’s funny cause we analyse this game to every degree and for some reason role change never came into my mind that would’ve made my decision easy I would’ve selected Ryan but for some Reason it was never mentioned and I didn’t even think of it

    Swans2012 · 21/06/2019 at 22:59

    Just upgraded smith to make it 20, couldn’t face both of buddy and siciflogs scores being counted.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:07

    I actually have 22 Holty, Hind on the bench in case Danger's missus drops a flesh coloured deuce.

No idea · 21/06/2019 at 22:45

Gee Lloyd scores SC points just for prancing around and picking up cheapies- I must be missing something.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:09

    He's the ultimate seagull..messed up quite a bit tonight though, didn't have as much room as usual, still manages a way to sleaze his way to a ton though.

      JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 00:08

      You guys sound like non Lloyd owners.

        No idea · 22/06/2019 at 08:17

        Sadly True

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:40

        True mate, but probably will be soon.

          JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 13:40

          I traded him in round three as a correction trade for Mills. I really should have started with him, like a lot of players I missed out on at the start.

            Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:48

            Know the feeling , and I have missed his scores all season, same with grundy, I think that was a very good correctional trade mate.

              JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 14:12

              I went Heeney to T.Kelly the same round, but my best trades were in round five, when I went Gibbons to Stack and Butters to O'Brien. My trades went a bit pear-shaped after that.

Steeeve · 21/06/2019 at 23:02

I brought in Sicily for Whitfield. Figured I could use his scoring during the byes. And now his score won't be in my best 18. Or at least I bloody hope not. Pull your head in Clarko!!

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:13

    I traded out ROB for Whitfield….before he scored 181….then had to trade Whitfield out…double loss there…such fun, such fun.

      Gainsy · 21/06/2019 at 23:30

      I let go of Rob early and also brought in Whitefield to have to take him back out again. Painful indeed.

Gainsy · 21/06/2019 at 23:16

was looking at hore or rozee to sicily. Glad I held that one off this week.
Might look at Stewart or Laird instead.. have hurn, lloyd and ryan and dont see anyone other clear standout premos.

    Holty01 · 21/06/2019 at 23:18

    Nice hold Gainsy. I bought him in last week so no going back now.☹️

      Gainsy · 21/06/2019 at 23:27

      Im in hot enough water tho with 6 trades left!!!
      I went hard on the trades as last year (and the year before) i finished the year making basically unnecessary trades just because I had excess trades left.
      Currently trying to figure a way for Boak to make his way in.

        JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 00:03

        Laird and Stewart would be the only ones I would be looking at and I would be keeping Hore if you are down to 6 trades.

Rick Grimes · 21/06/2019 at 23:33

One positive is I'll bring Sicily in for $400k. Surely he wont play forward again. It makes zero sense.

    Russty_ · 21/06/2019 at 23:41

    It makes no sense having him in our side when his Coach is such a stoopid assfart

      COREYSC · 22/06/2019 at 00:09

      Agreed! Sack Him hahaha times up he’s had too long there for not enough success😛

        Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 08:53

        Yeah his done sweet FA playing forward surely clarko sees this hawks two worst games of the year were when sic was there. It’s a no brainer to bring sic in if he plummets to 420k you’d imagine he will be down back from now on.. unfortunately I’m already an owner of him

MRB · 22/06/2019 at 00:33

Who to bring in..
J.Mcrae and A.Brayshaw or
A.Treloar and S.Sidebottom.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 00:41

    The top line.

Sammy B · 22/06/2019 at 05:18

Who should i bring in Oliver it the Bont.

    Redd · 22/06/2019 at 06:41

    The bont!

      Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 10:56

      oliver. still far from his best and averaging 106 and a nice easy draw from now on i hope he comes home strong and is at a 90k discount.

The Bont · 22/06/2019 at 07:29

Currently ranked 6849 and im looking at what trades I should do next

Backs: Lloyd, Houli, Laird, Williams, Stewart, Durrsma (Naish, Gardner)
Mids: Fyfe, Neale, Macrae, Oliver, Cunnington, Cripps, Stack, Clarke (Baker, Bewley, Answerth)
R: Gawn, Grundy (Sweet)
Fwd: Dunkley, Kelly, Boak, Danger, Heeney, Marshall (Burgess, Corbett)

10 trades and 15k left
I want to bring in Kelly, Hurn and 1 other mid
Who should I target first considering Kelly and Hurns price is high at the moment.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/06/2019 at 08:35

Still sticking to my no buddy way rule.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 10:26

    Hear hear!! Not touching Buddy with a 20 foot barge pole. I have not owned Buddy since the 2016 season. No regrets mate!

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/06/2019 at 09:14

      Same hawk

      If that was the year he burned us in the finals

      Still got the scorch marks.

Dan · 22/06/2019 at 09:54

What are people's thoughts on Brayshaw? Is he worth the punt, or not the sort of guy you want in your finished team?

    MRB · 22/06/2019 at 11:26

    If Goodwin keeps him on the ball then he's a bargain.

TelescopicCox · 22/06/2019 at 10:18

Surely Sicily plays back from now onwards. I was going to go Stewart this week, and Sloane next because I didn’t like any sub 470k defenders.

Is it worth going Oliver instead this week, and jumping on sicily once he bottoms out?

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 10:31

    I dont mind that strategy at all. Sicily will come good when Clarko switches his brain back on. So you might as well strengthen your midfield whilst keeping a premo slot open down back. Then you can see what happens with Sicily or get Stewart a bit later if Sicily implodes completely.

      TelescopicCox · 22/06/2019 at 11:03

      Cheers TH. I’ve got 2 spots left down back. 1 for a cheaper DEF and the other for Hurn or Whitfield

        TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 11:10

        Good stuff mate. I am getting Stewart this week as I am a sad Sicily owner and just have to put up with the prick. LOL

    Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 11:09

    sloane is fantastic value TC.
    Im jumping on him next week 511k for his output is nuts.
    But if you want another premo in this week oliver isn't a bad pick either nice run home should do well

Rocksta_ · 22/06/2019 at 10:25

I just pressed the button on the Smith to Stewart Trade. I Now have 21 Genuine Bonafide Premo’s for next week. However, only have 5 trades left for the season. Boy am I going to need some luck for the rest of the season. Still, nothing ventured nothing gained!

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 11:01

    I am about to do the same Rocksta! Going Smith to Stewart, Westhoff to Boak and Libba to Logue via DPP. BANG, BANG, BANG!!

      DavidC · 22/06/2019 at 11:33

      Crouching One would be proud.

        TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 11:39

        He would be!! Time to trade asssss offfffff!!! LOL

      Rocksta_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:05

      Good work TH. No risk, No reward!

    Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 12:14

    It’s now when you cross your fingers and hope no major injuries happen. At the same time, I have 12 so sitting alright but if I was a bit more aggressive like yourself and traded Rocky 4 weeks ago when he missed for a Merrett, I’d probably be at least 200 points better off and sitting in the top 10. It’s a tough thing to get right sometimes but if I’m ever in this position again, I will be a bit more aggressive.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:47

      With 12 left mate you're still in a good powerful position to make some big moves and hike yourself back up there…as long as you have the cashola.
      I bet quite a few of the others you're chasing will have well less than 10 left.

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:12

        What's your plan for the finals Holty regarding how many trades you want to have going into week 20?
        I think 6 would be optimal, but 4 would probably do .

          Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 13:37

          6 normally mate but first time for a while not looking at the finals. Been more interested in rank. So maybe 4 coming into finals.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:36

    Hey rocksta, you might be ok if you have decent bench cover…how's it looking in your side?

      Rocksta_ · 22/06/2019 at 23:51

      Na, shit coverage mate. It will definitely be a fingers crossed job from here on in. My goal this season however has been to try and finish as high in the rankings as possible so I’m happy with the strategy. Should be inside the top 1000 after this week so with some luck I may be able to finish with a decent rank come seasons end.

    Gainsy · 22/06/2019 at 13:09

    Sitting at 6 trades myself and looking similar. Will make rozee stewart this week and probly bring sicily in a few to make def complete. Rucks mids and forwards done (count edwards as a premo… would prefer boak obvs!)..
    Have gone some oddball coverage at d7 abd f7 (simpson and lynch) just to keep it interesting lol

TommyC99 · 22/06/2019 at 12:04

Hey guys,
Grab Treloar or Sloane this week?

In my main league, im 50pts behind. I have Ryan, Macrae and Crisp left while he has Neale, M Parker and Treloar. If i grabbed Treloar he would gain Oskar Baker as a unique so i would be assured the win. But im not just playing for leagues so want to go with the best option. Worth noting im a pies man so another pies player would be cool, but need to make an unbiased opinion!

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:44

    Hi Tommy, I'd go Sloane for the good of the rest of your season, Parker ain't much chop as we all know so you should win that matchup I reckon.

TelescopicCox · 22/06/2019 at 12:21

Gone Andrews as a POD, Sloane next week. POD szn

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:35

    I like it TC, I have him in too, hoping he scores like he can, he was flying last year before that Cameron K.O

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:42

I just had a look mate and didn't see any updates, I'd be thinking he'd be more likely not to play than to play though, if he misses his baby's birth, his Wife might not forgive him.

    COREYSC · 22/06/2019 at 12:47

    I think he’ll play, I reckon he’s just staying back one extra day to be there for his wife she’s not due for another two weeks

Dan · 22/06/2019 at 12:50

I just saw on Twitter that he is playing.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:53

    Nice Dan….good news mate, thanks !

    Patrick Dangerfield will line up for Geelong against Port Adelaide on Saturday night
    The Advertiser
    Saturday, 22 June 2019 10:43AM

    Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield has arrived in Adelaide and will play against the Power on Saturday night after delaying his departure on Friday.

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 12:58

Ok Lads so who do we think will go bigger today?
Neale V the Saints with no Steele or
Danger V Port
Hoping I won't have to make the choice and Gawny smashes Darcy into dust lol

    Ricardo · 22/06/2019 at 13:01


      Ricardo · 22/06/2019 at 13:01


    Gainsy · 22/06/2019 at 13:21


    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:29

    Thanks fellas, it's a tough one to pick, in his last 3 appearances against Port, Danger has averaged 145 points!
    Hopefully I won't have to even make the call.

    Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:29

    Ive gone Gawn into neale russty. hopefully i don't need neale though

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:34

      I don't think we will Mav, reckon he'll towell up Hodor, even though he played ok in the 2nd half last week.

Ricardo · 22/06/2019 at 13:08

Great to see Sydney finish off Hawthorn for the year.Downside was i brought a cheap Buddy in this week and to see J Sicily pushed forward with no impact.Clarko put him back to defence where he is more useful.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:35

    Yeah serves him right for stuffing up our Supercoach scores this week Ricardo….Karma!

    Derek · 22/06/2019 at 13:47

    Might have been Roughys last game

Dash · 22/06/2019 at 13:21

Walsh > Oliver this week

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 13:35

    Nice Dash, have you done that or thinking about doing it?

Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:16

can someone tell me is brayshaw playing in the guts again this game? whats he worth these days…

i punted him 5 weeks ago for macrae he better not start killing it and become SC relevant again 🙁
Oliver, Ryan and Gawn better pull there fingers out of each other bums or i'm in for a bad week I had sicily last night too

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:26

    Yeah started playing guts Mav, and he's worth 423k

      Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 15:09

      He ain’t worth $423k sitting on 40 at half time !!!!

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 15:10

        Coach keeps moving him forward where he scores bugger all.

Derek · 22/06/2019 at 14:17

I’m glad that Oliver is saving himself for a big finish.

65% TOG first quarter.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:19

    Yeah he's just biding his time Derek, him and Gawn…lol

    Derek · 22/06/2019 at 14:34

    Half way through second quarter he has 56% TOG. Why

      Derek · 22/06/2019 at 14:40

      Finally gets on and scores 30pts in 5 mins

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:41

      Couldn't tell you maybe he got stuck on the bench?…he's rolling along now though, hopefully a big one.

        Derek · 22/06/2019 at 15:00

        Big second half.

        Put my VC on him

Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 14:19

So just had a look to see Fyfe is on 34 at 1/4 time. Amazed he isn’t on 50.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:30

    He's getting tagged by Harmes now.

Defying_Madness · 22/06/2019 at 14:41

Logue starting strong has me happy. Wishing I traded out Hore though feelsbad

    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 14:52

    Logue will be one of my trade ins next week.

      Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 14:54

      Looking good isn't he..
      I wouldn't bank enough $$ from the trade and right now i am looking for the instant cash grab for upgrades. but who knows the temptation may be too great and i'll probably give in an grab him too haha

      Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 15:07

      I brought him in this week 😁 .. given my trades situation he will end up my D7 looping with D6 Crisp..

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 15:09

        Same here Laz…wouldn't it be great if he tonned up?..fingers crossed.

          Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 16:22

          104 !!!!! Freakin unreal… 🤪

        Defying_Madness · 22/06/2019 at 15:11

        I brought him in for quick cash hopefully. Have 13 trades left no money and a premo to get

Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 14:51

Come on Maxy. Any chance you can get a hit out to advantage? Hopefully Melbourne’s midfield coach can fix the problem.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 15:00

    4 clangers doesn't help Maxy's score either.

      Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 15:12

      I thought Darcy would challenge Gawn in the ruck but didn’t think he would monster him.

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 15:15

        He's a big unit mate and also a white walker lol

    Defying_Madness · 22/06/2019 at 16:05

    Big Half from the big man

JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 15:35

A quick question, what do you consider more important going forward, a swing set so you can make the most of your highest bench scores, or a good scoring rookie on your bench. I'm thinking about keeping either Drew or Walsh, the other will be traded out.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:05

    For me it'd be a swingset John, Rookies scoring highly on the bench are a waste unless they're loopholed…on the other hand the good scoring bench rookies could save your butt if you get injuries at the end.

      JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 16:16

      That's my exact problem Russty, I'm having trouble splitting the importance of the two, I might just trade out Walsh, it would be a lot of value sitting on the bench at the end and hope my other mid rookies can step up.

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:19

        Walsh is good but sometimes gets a lot of disposals for not many points, it'd be a lot of money going to waste on the bench, ideally at the end you'd want to have spent all your money for your last trade.

Rick Grimes · 22/06/2019 at 15:44

Hore to Logue. Was hoping to keep the Horemonger but he's not the same with May in there. I'm gonna end up one short in the premo stakes

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:06

Keep going Gawny, you big beautiful bastard.

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/06/2019 at 16:06

Gawn with 60+ points in half a quarter for not doing a whole lot. I'm not complaining bc he's my VC but really Champion Data??

Gainsy · 22/06/2019 at 16:12

Trades done. Rozee > stewart, Liba > m/f cheapo rook, parker > boak

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:21

Gold Loguey for Logue, yes I know I'm a dag.

    Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 16:24

    A daggy dag… and Ryan tonned up too..

Big G · 22/06/2019 at 16:22

Sunny reported for headbutt.

    Derek · 22/06/2019 at 16:28

    Will he get suspended?

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:23

Maxy left Hodor holding the door while he went and scored 150+..woohoo

dontblushbaby · 22/06/2019 at 16:24

Haha Holty, yep I swapped the VC to Max from Fyfe just before the start , don't to forget to change your C , silly things can happen

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:32

    Lucky you did mate, Fyfe had a fairly indifferent game.

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 16:27

Happy with Bewley’s 68 too

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:31

    Yeah not bad Lazza, he's trending upward with his scoring.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 18:36

      Don't think I'd go there mate, unless I was really desperate, don't trust his body to finish the season.
      He has done well though considering only playing 72% TOG

Libba · 22/06/2019 at 16:33

Max gawn' s lowest score since round 9 was 144

He has since posted 149,158,153,151

5 round average of 151


    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 16:38

    All hail Max.

Libba · 22/06/2019 at 16:34

I changed my VC from Oliver to gawn and was regretting it at half time

JugHead · 22/06/2019 at 16:40

Getting harder each week not to rage trade Mundy…..

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:48

    Think his age might be catching up with him and also Derek mentioned earlier in the year, Walters coming back has affected his output.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 17:14

    He is really starting to p/ss me off. Probably stuck with him for the rest of the season unless he gets injured. Only have trades left now to cover for injuries.

JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 16:55

I can't see anyone from Melbourne taking points off him, Oliver in a couple of games maybe, but that would be about it.

Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 16:55

I wonder if Hanneberry will give a few coaches something to think about over the next few weeks if he shows us a bit.
an awkward time of the year to return at a tempting price when alot of us have finished our midfields or one spot to go.
Has started on absolute fire if he stays fit we know his SC pedigree maybe he just needed a new club to refresh him

    Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 17:10

    I'll be very tempted NDD but will take alot of persuasion to see me pick him over sloane next week at 511k.
    Would be nice of Gator to share with the community if he has the inside word haha

Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 17:05

would this season be as strong as his last NDD especially when the dees aren't winning as many games?
Gawn certainly has been superb all year though would love too see the big fella win the charlie instead of a midfielder.

Rocksta_ · 22/06/2019 at 17:11

Thank Fk I have 20 active players this week! That means Answerth’s score will be nothing but a bad dream. Absolute 🥔

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 17:15

    I have 19. Happy to take Sicily's 40. Answerth will be lucky to get half that. Useless turd he is.

TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 17:17

Looking good isnt he. If he keeps this up today and then plays well again next week week, he could be a very handy M9

    Defying_Madness · 22/06/2019 at 17:26

    I have no money currently and am in need of a M8. Tempting

    Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 17:36

    A fit Hannebery and at his price .. a great M9.. could even facilitate looping two mid pricers instead of 1 premo

      Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 18:00

      Or rotate Rocky and him at M8🤔

TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 17:20

The Herald Sun reckoned that Lachie Neale was a must this week. What a load of sheit. Sides have worked him out, and could well drop a massive turd today. Glad I stayed away. I want Macrae next week.

    Jace · 22/06/2019 at 17:50

    I went Macrae this week over neale

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 18:01

      Great move mate. I am grabbing Boak and Tom Stewart shortly. Then Macrae next week to finish off my team. Happy days.

    JugHead · 22/06/2019 at 17:50

    I grabbed Macrae this week ahead of him. His hot streak that took him to 650k+ never really looked sustainable to me.
    That said, he has averaged well over 100+ for several years on end and rarely misses games. In his prime as far as age goes.
    I still think he is great value if you can get him slightly cheaper than his current price.
    I think some of the newspaper experts get caught up on a good player who has hit a strong patch of form.
    Case in point. Hurn is good, but not worth 600k.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 18:03

    Spot on Holty. He will keep getting very close attention now. The hard tag has really slowed him up. Very happy I grabbed Logue this morning. Swooping on T Stewart and Boak very shortly. Then Macrae next week to finish things off. Good luck this round Holty. Keep it together and the byes are behind us.

    KSinny · 22/06/2019 at 18:04

    I went Oliver over Neale this week, meant I could afford to go B.Smith up to Stewart.

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 19:06

      Beautiful. Keep dodging the heart breakers mate. Neale was sheizenhouzen today. Should have done so much better in a side which totally dominated.

    TommyC99 · 22/06/2019 at 18:06

    I almost brought him in too TH, went Sloane instead!

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 19:04

      Bet you are a happy chappy now!! Great stuff. Sloanedog will do you proud. Having a ripper season.

    Rick Grimes · 22/06/2019 at 18:42

    Neale will pull out a 50 point final qtr. Zorko might get the attention next week.

      Maverick_ · 22/06/2019 at 18:46

      Hopefully this game shows that tagging neale doesn't affect the games outcome and they lockdown zorko again ASAP.
      I only bought neale in this week, what a disaster

        JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 18:52

        I was tossing up between L.Parker and Neale all week, went Neale, so I would have some cash left over, I should have just paid up for Parker.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 18:55

    Brilliant strategy Richo Tagging Neale for most of the game, if he hadn't done that, Saints might've lost by 100 LOL

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 19:08

      Richo has no idea. What a joke the saints were today. Marshall is the exception. Got him two weeks ago, and he has been a god send in my forward line. Billings OK too.

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 19:12

        Hey mate, yeah Marshall's a revelation this year, and Hind's score a nice surprise too today. Saints are shite!!

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 17:37

Neale’s off the boil .

hedski · 22/06/2019 at 18:09

I had the vc on him Neil, I'm hoping bringing Greenwood on with the bye and whacking the C in him works?
Hopefully then I'll get Lyons points off the bench as he is the only one playing from there?

Sam_01 · 22/06/2019 at 18:54

Yeah sorry boys brought Neale in this week was highly considering not getting him but it was my final midfield spot of course he throws out a turd

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 19:14

    Neale's 79 not a total disaster, just a 75% disaster lol

      Sam_01 · 22/06/2019 at 20:17

      My upgrades have been rough
      Traded wilkie to Sicily have lost points two weeks running now
      Flicked Walsh to Neale and he turds it
      Tradesd duursma to Stewart and it’s looking grim so far
      Was hoping to sneak inside the top 1k poor start from me

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 20:34

        I think in the overall mate, those trades will work out for the best, Rookies always drop off, and Neale, Sicily and Stewart have proven they're good, it's just a bad week this week. You'll be right.

    Derek · 22/06/2019 at 21:44

    Yep. I finally brought him in as well.

Laurie · 22/06/2019 at 19:20

A bit of help please who should I trade out of Duursma or Rozee for Stewart? I know Rozee has the higher breakeven but a bit of advice would be great!

    Ja191 · 22/06/2019 at 19:24

    Rozee, id back duursma to out score him and lower be

      Laurie · 22/06/2019 at 19:29

      Thanks for the help I’ve been leaning towards getting rid of Rozee just liked his dpp.. but I think Stewart will be more consistent.

        Laurie · 22/06/2019 at 20:16

        Want to cry looking at Rozee’s score compared to Stewart…..why oh why did I trade!

          Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 20:18

          I wouldn't worry about it yet, Stewart will probably outscore Rozee, he's a solid player who does good things.

hedski · 22/06/2019 at 19:28

Got Clarke and Logue in this week for Scott and Duursma, happy so far there 👍.
The plan then was Gibbons to Neale but Hoff getting himself dropped stuffed that up.
Decided to punt Hoff for Robbie Gray….let's see how that works out.
The bonus is I have enough cash left to upgrade Gibbo to Sloanedog next week completing my mids.
Carn the cattas 🍻

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 19:35

    Worked out well for you Hed, one game today and one game tomorrow and then this bye crap is over!…yay
    Loguey boy did great today, you'd be stoked with that.

      hedski · 22/06/2019 at 19:41

      Can't wait for the bastard byes to be over, stoked with a ton from Logue today mate.
      I see you got him in to, have you in CAZALY I think 👍

        Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 19:56

        Yeah I took Duursma off to get Hind's score…could be a big mistake…lol

Defying_Madness · 22/06/2019 at 19:48

Big start for Duursma. Had other priorities so held him for an extra week, hopefully he keeps it up.

    Derek · 22/06/2019 at 20:14

    I’ve kept him st D6 until Whitfield is ready. Good player.

    He got a heavy knock just before 1/4 time. Hope he is ok.

Cpt · 22/06/2019 at 20:04

Captain Loophole Question!

Just confirming that it’s possible to put the Cpt on a bye player (on field) to ensure I get Gawns VC (151).

Is this correct?

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 20:09

    Yeah mate no problem there.

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 20:36

Did anyone else bring Lycett in this week for Westhoff?…pretty happy with how the big bastard's going so far.

    Rick Grimes · 22/06/2019 at 20:45

    Just be wary of if/when Ryder cones back in. He'll drop from 150 to 75. Great to have when solo and on top.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 20:52

      Not sure Paddy or Westy will get back in all that soon Rick, both are getting on and have been out of form.
      Lycett is clearly number 1 Ruck when given the chance.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 20:56

    I thought about it as you know Russty, but I have been burnt bringing back in players I had already traded out, plus I am very low on trades, I have 4 less than I usually have left at this time of the season.

      Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 21:06

      Can understand your reticence at bringing an already traded out player back in John.
      At this point of my season, which has been quite unremarkable, I thought I'd try it on…not much to lose really as I'm not even in the top 10000, and maybe will make half my League Finals.

        JohnDJ59 · 23/06/2019 at 15:02

        I was looking back on my trades and in hindsight, I could have just kept Lycett at F6 and O'Brien at R2. I would have missed out on Grundy, but I would have saved two trades.

    One Touch Wonder · 22/06/2019 at 21:43

    Had him from the start

    Swans2012 · 22/06/2019 at 23:19

    Nice get rusty, reckon I still might have you in a graders but With scores dropping out etc it gets complicated lol

      Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 14:28

      Yeah I think you've got me there Swanny, very solid week from you mate, I'm not giving up yet though…lol, still in it with an outside sniff.

Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 21:02

Tim Kelly has a problem with Houston…26 points at half time, come on man!!

    Rooboy · 22/06/2019 at 21:05

    Laying a big turd on adelaide oval

TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 21:34

Anybody own Lycett? Raise your hands! Come on Derek… have him now right?

    KeenButClueless · 22/06/2019 at 21:41


    Holty01 · 22/06/2019 at 22:04

    The number 1 ranked supercoacher has both ROB and Lycett. Who would of thought the leader would have those 2

      TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 22:14

      FML. I have just sobered up. That is nuts. He/she will probably punt both next week for Gawn and Grundy. Two straight switches. LOL

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 21:46

I playing a guy in one of the cash leagues who doesn’t have Danger in his team… 😳

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 21:49

Rozee… gonna be a very good player…. I see that Champion Data has Stack and Rozee ahead of Walsh for rising star

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/06/2019 at 09:05

    They obviously don't take into account the team they play for and help they get

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 22:10

The Cats will need a bye after this round …

Rick Grimes · 22/06/2019 at 22:10

Happy with Gray pick up. Seems to be back in his SC friendly role.

    Derek · 23/06/2019 at 01:21

    Helped that Rocky didn’t play

      DavidC · 23/06/2019 at 08:24

      Rocky back via the SAFL next week apparently. Going to burn owners for another week.

        Holty01 · 23/06/2019 at 10:29

        Damn, this holding of Rocky has cost me heaps. So much for being out for 1 week.

      Swans2012 · 23/06/2019 at 10:31

      I’m not convinced rocky will go back to a permanent midfield role Derek, they seem better balanced with gray roaming the midfield a little to me, and they are wining. not to mention they may be a little cautious with rocky on full Midfield minutes now he’s had a couple injuries. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ebert and wines swallowed up some of Rocky’s midfield minutes rather than grays…. at least I’m hoping as a gray owner

        Rick Grimes · 23/06/2019 at 13:14

        Agree. Not sure you change the formula that just knocked off Cats. Rocky is washed up.

Lazza · 22/06/2019 at 22:26

Sitting on 1616 with Dunkley, Macrae and Crisp to play… probably looking at around 1950…how is everyone else faring?

    Northerner · 22/06/2019 at 22:31

    Projected 2090 with Macrae and Grundy to play

    hedski · 22/06/2019 at 22:35

    18 playing this week Lazza after 17 the last two rounds.
    Sicily, Hawkins and Answorth my main spuds.
    1347 with Grundy, Macrae, Dunkley and Daniel to come.
    Looks like a third week in a row in the 1700's for me.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 22:39

    1586 at the moment, Grundy and Dunkley still to play, looking at 1850 at least.

    TOPHAWK1 · 22/06/2019 at 22:59

    Sitting on 1621 with Grundy and Crisp to come. Hoping to squeeze out 1850 this week after 2014, and 1818 in the two previous bye rounds. I reckon you are good for 2000 Lazza. Huge round for you.

    Russty_ · 22/06/2019 at 23:12

    Not sure, got 2 scores to drop out and 2 to come in, hoping to crack 1900.

    Swans2012 · 22/06/2019 at 23:25

    1791 off 17 with dunks McRae crisp to come. Couple 40-50’s to drop out so 2000 plus I’d hope….

    Sam_01 · 22/06/2019 at 23:43

    1360 Answerth 38 to drop then I got macrae/bont/treloar/grundy/Dunkley hoping to go 1800-1900

    Rocksta_ · 22/06/2019 at 23:53

    Should be around the 2000 mark

      Ned_Starkers · 23/06/2019 at 00:20

      Only fielding 17 this week, but looking like a 1950 if Dunkley, Macrae and Grundy can hit their projections tomorrow.

    Iamme · 23/06/2019 at 00:57

    16/1619 with Bont, Dunkley, Macrae, Daniel and Grundy still to play and 3 scores to be removed

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/06/2019 at 09:10

    Was always gonna struggle this round with quite a few giants and crows dotted throughout my team.

    Be gr8 to hit 1800 but think be closer to 17.
    Lots of mediocre.
    Sicily. Kelly, Neale ainsworth
    And they all count. 😩

    Write this one off and come out with one rookie on field next week….

    silversovereign · 23/06/2019 at 09:16

    I’d say about 1850, not expecting Grundy, Dunkley and Macrae to all hit there massive forecasts but hoping new recruit the bont can beat his forecast of 90 odd.

    TheBenchmark25 · 23/06/2019 at 09:23

    1841 with Sicily 40 and baker 55 to drop out and Grundy and Daniel to come in.. projected 1990

    Rick Grimes · 23/06/2019 at 13:11

    Should crack 2000.

    JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 14:10

    About 1950 as well. And really happy with that if I get it.

hedski · 22/06/2019 at 22:30

And the cats post bye blues continue 😪.
Wish my fwd pod Tomahawk wasn't a late withdrawal or we might have won……

    JohnDJ59 · 22/06/2019 at 22:41

    When teams are asked what they want in the next years draw, they will say, to play Geelong after their bye round.

    COREYSC · 23/06/2019 at 08:41

    The worse part is their is a bye before finals too! Melbourne were happy for that last year

TBone_9 · 22/06/2019 at 23:22

Geez, what a weekend of footy so far! Some real good games and some absolute shalackings as well. Looks at the moment like plans for next week will have to change. Loved the look of Logue against my mob today, a 103 in his system for the next few weeks too… mhhh he looks very tasty indeed. Also was impressed by Hind today too, looks like he will be a popular target to bring in as well. It’s going to be tough to decide whether a trade is really worth it or not seeing as most of us are down to 12 or less. This is where all the planning throughout the year will set you ahead! Go Dees

TelescopicCox · 23/06/2019 at 13:16

Andrews and Neale were my trade ins this week. 2018 it’s been fun. Time to start focussing on 2019 SuperCoach

    Marty McFly · 23/06/2019 at 13:29

    News Flash, It is 2019

      TelescopicCox · 23/06/2019 at 15:10

      F*#%. That’s how good I’m going this season

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 14:24

    Neale got tagged but what was Andrew's excuse?..very disappointing, hopefully he gets it together next week.

      JEL · 23/06/2019 at 15:33

      Ball was at the other end of the ground??
      I'm also hoping he does better next week.

      Neale learning how to play with a tag would also help.

KSinny · 23/06/2019 at 13:36

1671 with Grundy and Macrae to go, hopefully can hit just over 1900. How's everyone else going?

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 13:50

    1621 with Grundy and Crisp to come. A score of 1868 (247 between these two) will give me an exact average of 1900 across the three bye rounds. I might not quite get there but it's mission accomplished regardless.

      JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 14:21

      Thats a good aiming point I reckon TH. We all whine about the byes, but if you do some planning and are lucky with injuries, its an opportunity to climb the ranks a bit.
      I'm looking at a bye average of 1820-1830. Not as high as I'd hoped, but not disastrous either.

        TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 14:35

        That's it Jughead. I always look at my bye average during the byes. I aim to sit between 1800-1900. If you can achieve that your ranking going into the finish will have held. Some coaches will have pumped one 1950, then a 1650 and finish with a 1700. Average 1766. No good. You should come out very solid mate. Cheers JH!

      Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 14:22

      Great bye average there Hawk, you must've moved up the ranks a bit in the last few weeks, I think the last few years I averaged about 1600 lol, better for me this year at around 1900 also.

        TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 14:32

        Hi Russsty. Yes. I started the byes ranked 17K <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😂" src=""&gt; after some early season headaches. I have shot up to 10K in the last 2 weeks. If Grundy and Crisp avoid major turds today, I am hoping to jump another 2-3 thousand spots. If I can be around 7K with Grawndy, and one short of uber premo, who knows might come home like a train. Touch wood, it's looking good. Logue, Stewart and Boak were handy additions this week. Only 8 trades left though. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😅" src="">How are you looking Russsty?

          Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 14:50

          I was ranked just under 21K 2 weeks ago but am now just over 12K…so heading in the right direction, was hoping to keep Hore but not sure we can now, he's turned into a lazy Hore…lol Hoping to get somewhere near 2000 today fingers crossed 🙂

      JohnDJ59 · 23/06/2019 at 14:56

      I'm doing better this year, looking at an average of 1850 over the three bye rounds, I usually only average 1700-1750 and stay around the same rank or go backwards, this time I have been able to move up, so far, from 23,593 to 14,419. After the start I had I will be happy to just stay around this rank and make 5/9 finals.

      Lazza · 23/06/2019 at 15:30

      Good stuff TH.. be interesting to se what the average average is across the byes … I’m looking at around a 1920 average if those left to play meet their projections…x

    Holty01 · 23/06/2019 at 15:00

    Hopefully 2000 for me if my POD works out today.

    gator59 · 23/06/2019 at 15:18

    1729 With Grundy, The Bont, Dunkley and Mcrae to play

      TBone_9 · 23/06/2019 at 16:41

      Huge score on the way mate, I reckon you’re gonna go above 2100

      gator59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:12

      Cheers Holty and T Bone

Pranav · 23/06/2019 at 17:07

grundy c putting danger and gawn to shame

    JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 17:40

    Yep. Congrats anyone who had the cohones to pick him. I was too worried about him being a late out.
    So much for thinking he might not be 100%

      Pranav · 23/06/2019 at 17:46

      yeah i saw he was on the injury list before and after the bye. so went with danger c after neale vc fail. cant complain with 141 and lowest captain score during byes was 129

JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 17:22

Is it crazy to get Darcy Moore as a f7 / d7 swingman with Ryan Gardner at the other end?
Moore seems to be reliable for 70 pts each week

    Ja191 · 23/06/2019 at 18:10

    Your d7/f7 should usually be a risky player with a high ceiling so you can loop in their score in the odd week they do well more so than cover

      JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 18:31

      Hadnt thought of it that eay. but makes sense.

KSinny · 23/06/2019 at 18:09

1954 for me this week. Guessing that's about par?

    Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:11

    2081 for me this week. Stoked. Should get me into the top 1000. From the scores I’ve seen in my league, I reckon around 1920 is par

      KSinny · 23/06/2019 at 18:13

      Great score mate, that'll Definatly boost your ranking

        Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:30

        Cheers Mate. Yea fingers Crossed

    gator59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:13

    2122 for me this week

      Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:15

      Great score Gator!…and Rocksta, 1998 for me, won 8 out of 10 Leagues and averaged 1910 for the 3 rounds so happy with that 🙂
      Thank God these bloody byes are over!

        Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:20

        Yeah mate Grundy and Macrae came home like runaway trains for you…hehe, though I had a chance until the last 10 minutes, well done mate.

        Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:26

        Cheers Russty

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:36

      Gator!!! That has got to be one of the biggest bye scores this round by a long shot. Get ready for lift off in the rankings tonight mate. WOW.Brilliant. TH

        gator59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:59

        Cheers Toppa, Yeah a good round but the only good score for the bye rounds.. But I was lucky only to drop 3,000 odd places over the last 2 weeks.. Hope this can get me back up there again

      gator59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:54

      Had you in three leagues Neil.. Good to get one back on you

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:34

    Fantastic score Ksinny. I ended up with 1866. I will take that and leave the byes in the rear view vision mirror. Good riddance!

TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:17

OK folks. How did we do this round AND through the three bye rounds. Two numbers required: round 14 score and 3 round bye average. I ended up with 1866 for round 14 and a three round bye average of 1899.33. How did others fare over the last three weeks?

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:19

    Hey mate, 1998 this week and 1911 over the 3 weeks, cheers, much better than past seasons.

      The Bont · 23/06/2019 at 18:22

      2011 this week and averaged 1966 over the 3 byes

        TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:33

        Thats big bont. Thats huge!! Good luck for the run home mate. TH

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:27

      Huge russty!! 3 bye average above 1900. We are set for a big run home. Two more trades this week and that will be it. Need Macrae as my last uber upgrade. Then will be pure premo and have 6 trades left for the run home. I have adopted a much more aggressive trading strategy this season and it has worked so far. Touch a big clump of wood!! Cheers Russty. TH

    JohnDJ59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:21

    1880 for round 14 and a 1865 average for the three bye rounds.

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:32

      Not only survived the byes, but probably thrived and moved up the rankings as well. Good luck for the rest of the season John. Thank fark those byes are behind us. Cheers. TH

        JohnDJ59 · 23/06/2019 at 18:50

        Thanks TH, I did better than usual, but I also used the max trades allowed, something I don't normally do.

    Pranav · 23/06/2019 at 18:27

    1962 and 1940 very happy with that

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:30

      Monster average buddy!! Anything above 1900 over the 3 bye rounds sets you up big time. Cheers, Pranav. TH

        Pranav · 23/06/2019 at 18:45

        Problem is I’m still 3 premos away from a complete team. Sloane in this week then Hurn week after and might have to pay up for Kelly to complete my side

    Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:28

    2088 this round after final corrections. 3 round bye average of 2001. Pretty Stoked

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:29

      Massive Rocksta. You are set for a massive finish. Congrats. TH

        Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:34

        Cheers TH. My Team is good but only 5 trades left so will need a lot of luck. All part of the fun I say!

    Wondering · 23/06/2019 at 18:36

    2204 this round (anyone seen higher)
    Average of 1915 over the byes due to a poor score last week

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:39

      Absolutely smashed it this week!! That is up there for some cash me thinks. Congrats mate. TH

    Hodgey · 23/06/2019 at 18:39

    2093 this week, 1978 avg for the byes. Luckily have held lycett since round 1

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 19:02

      Noice!!! Keeping Lycett is turning out to be a master stroke. Brilliant byes score too. Set for a big finish. Good luck mate! TH

        Hodgey · 23/06/2019 at 20:05

        He's proving very handy as an F6 and ruck cover! Good luck to you too mate

          Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:10

          Great score and average Hodgey, I brought Lycett in this week for Westhoff and he allowed me to get a decent score as I don't have Grundy yet.

            Hodgey · 24/06/2019 at 11:42

            I'm without Grundy as well, generally fielding Gawn/ROB. Wishing I brought him in this week rather than splurging on Dunkley!

    TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 18:41

    Mission accomplished Holty. Bye average above 1900. Hopefully your score this week will keep your rank fairly stable. Good luck in your run home mate. Be aggressive and reap the rewards!! Go after that pot of gold mate! Cheers. TH

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 19:06

      The Rocky conundrum. I got rid of him the week he missed the game in China. No regrets. Used his cash to nail Marshall. But it all depends upon your structures. Go with your gut and make that right call. I believe he is out again next week……..

    Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 18:43

    Well Done Holty. Will keep you right in the hunt.

      Holty01 · 23/06/2019 at 18:58

      Let’s hope so. Thought my score of 2022 was good until I saw other scores in my leagues. May only be slightly above average average

    Notorious · 23/06/2019 at 18:47

    1895 this week with an average of 1990 over the 3 weeks. Was ranked 2400 before this week. Moved up 10000 spots in the first 2 bye weeks

      TOPHAWK1 · 23/06/2019 at 19:01

      Thats seriously good mate. I moved up 7000 spots in the first two weeks of the byes to 10K. I Am very pleased with that as my team is very advanced now. Used 8 trades to get things set up. One short of full premo now. Grabbing Macrae to finish things off. Hopefully set for a cracking run home. Good luck in the run home! Cheers. TH

        Sam_01 · 23/06/2019 at 19:04

        1971 this week
        1879 and a 2068
        1973 average over the three

          Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:18

          Great average there Sam, really strong

      Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:19

      Excellent average Notorious…through the carnage intact and ready to move forward.

    Yeahnah · 23/06/2019 at 19:24

    1932 over the 3 rounds, got me from rank 11817 to 4650.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 23/06/2019 at 19:47

    1909 this week, and averaged 1901 over the byes. Not the best/not the worst!

    Ned_Starkers · 23/06/2019 at 19:58

    1918 this week, 1938 average. Unfortunately slipped 300 spots this week back to nearly 1,300 ranking.

    JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 20:17

    2037 this week, and 1850 average over the byes. Went from around 20000th to 14000th. Which is pretty good for me.
    Did ok in the leagues too.

    Jace · 23/06/2019 at 21:16

    1833 this week and 1958 average for the byes

      Jace · 23/06/2019 at 21:19

      Also went from rank 35,000 down 14,000
      Happy with that.

        Browncow · 23/06/2019 at 23:40

        Nice jump up the rankings Jace! I went 2037 and 1955 over byes. Most community leagues seemed to have jumped a few spots in the league rankings this week.

    DavidC · 24/06/2019 at 07:20

    Plenty of great bye averages here. I went 2028 this week, averaged 1907 over the byes and moved from 15k to 7k.

    hedski · 24/06/2019 at 09:02

    1884 this week for a 3 round average of 1788.
    Not real flash, still managed to move up 4000 spots over the byes.

      TOPHAWK1 · 24/06/2019 at 09:30

      Solid Hedski! You pipped me by 18 in one of our leagues. We will meet again soon! Cheers. TH

        hedski · 24/06/2019 at 09:42

        Glad the byes are over TH.
        Logue will be my only on field rookie now after I bring Sloane in this week.

    Lazza · 24/06/2019 at 10:21

    R14 1975, 3 round average 1924..

    Swans2012 · 24/06/2019 at 14:45

    2026, 1916 and a 2057 to finish
    1999.66 average
    Pretty happy really, the byes are the only thing I’ve done right this year lol
    gone from 31k overall to 9k and a hint of respectability lol.

NoLanguage96 · 23/06/2019 at 18:52

The decision to start Goldy over Grundy to save some cash was probably the worst decision of my SC career 🙁

    Jace · 23/06/2019 at 21:22

    That was mine to,but will change that this week.
    See ya Goldy hello Grundy finally.

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 21:53

    Yep and his last 3 round average is 94…bye bye Goldmember.

Yeahnah · 23/06/2019 at 19:27

Alright blokes. Got 2 mid spots to fill, thinking of between these: Bont, Zerrett, Duncan, Oliver, Yeo. Leaning towards Duncan and Yeo for a greater point of difference.

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 19:57

    2 good choices there I think Yeahnah

KeenButClueless · 23/06/2019 at 19:37

Went to do my trades and it is allowing me to do 3 trades. Tempted …..

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:19

    Did you try it on Keen?…must be a glitch ay?

      KeenButClueless · 23/06/2019 at 21:05

      Can do it, but it won’t confirm

Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:16

Hey Trig, sorry I sent you down the ladder a bit in your Happy place mate, bounce back strong next week. 🙂

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/06/2019 at 21:52

    That's alright rust.
    Whoever had me this week was likely to win as I had about 8 premos out. Giant and crow flavour.

    Tight in the happy place, still within touch of the top 4.

    Will have to earn a win moving fwd.
    After either bringin in hurn or laird this week will have logue/Duursma as my only on field rook.

    B4 trades predicted 2400 plus – let's dance.

      Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 22:03

      Doing a couple of big moves myself this week mate, I'm all out of patience with Goldy, just gotta hang on for dear life from here.

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 22:04

    It's weird Neil, in other Leagues such as my own JR Megaleague I'm struggling to make the top 16 hahaha
    Bit stiff for you beating me this week in Guns N Rookies mate and not advancing on the ladder, nor me dropping.

      JohnDJ59 · 24/06/2019 at 00:46

      It is interesting Russty, the JR Mega-league is ranked around the same as The Rat Pack, yet we are 16th and 17th in JR, but 4th and 5th in Rat Pack, so just the luck of the draw on who you play each weekend.You should have me covered this weekend in The Rat Pack, my team is now on life support due to having no more trades for upgrading, only emergencies. I'm in the top eight in six of my nine leagues, but I'm expecting to slide down the rankings and ladders from here. Ended up four short of full premo, lesson learnt, try and nail the starting lineup of your team and then conserve trades.

JugHead · 23/06/2019 at 20:47

OUT – Parker. IN- Logue via dpp.
Feels so good opening the trapdoor on Parker I'll be reversing it and doing it again all week………

    Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 20:55

    Hehehe don't bother reversing it mate, just the one time is enough, although he wasn't too bad this week, ended up in my top 18 scores.

Sam_01 · 23/06/2019 at 21:14

Thinking on Parker and Answerth out logue and naish in
Leaves me with 5 trades 236k in the bank following team
Back: lloyd,laird,Williams,Stewart,Sicily, logue (naish/burgess)
Mid: kelly, Fyfe, Neale, cripps, mcrae, bont, treloar, crouch(baker,stocker,bewley)
Ruck: Gawn Grundy (fort)
Fwd: Dunkley, danger, kelly, Boak, heeney, Greene (Gardner,bines)

    Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 21:31

    Go for it

      Sam_01 · 23/06/2019 at 21:47

      Tossing up just bringing in some 102k spuds instead then finnishing my team next week as option number 2 though although if things don’t go to plan and I can’t afford hurn next week i don’t think it will be worth it

        Rocksta_ · 23/06/2019 at 21:54

        I’ve got 21 Genuine Premo’s, and Logue or Naish as my only onfield Rookie. But I too only have 5 trades left. Given Logue’s form and JS, I’m banking on him to do well for the next few weeks, and look to make my final upgrade around say Rd 18. I think you really need one of them in and preferably Logue, but given you’ll have $236K left after bringing both in, I’d bring both in. You can emergency loophole them via Burgess or Gardner maximising the chance of a good score from either.

          Sam_01 · 23/06/2019 at 22:10

          If I go naish and a 102k mid/def
          If hurn goes 102 then 125 he drops to 542k
          Then baker chucks up two 55s he goes up to 246k
          I can bring hurn in for rnd 17 but it will be cutting it very fine! however if baker goes 80 odd I could potentially get hurn next week
          If I go the logue option I’ll have to wait till he hits 320k which will be after his rnd 19 game according to projections probably the safer and more secure option

        Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 21:57

        Get the best you can get at this time of year, you don't need anymore spuds in your side if possible, you're still carrying Stocker, Gardner and Burgess

          Sam_01 · 23/06/2019 at 22:16

          Stocker will be back soon I think the upside of the naish and spud rookie plan might be the go
          Surely logue can’t keep scoring this well can he?

            Russty_ · 23/06/2019 at 22:34

            Not sure but he's got the body for it, and seems to have the desire to play well, and at 100kgs and 1.93 cm, he's no lightweight, and he'll go up 75 to 90k next week.

            DavidC · 24/06/2019 at 07:12

            If Stocker doesn't come back and Naish gets dropped as expected you'll be stuffed.

              Sam_01 · 24/06/2019 at 08:29

              I mean I only need naish to play for two more weeks even just one may be enough worst comes to worst I can just pass on hurn and get Luke Ryan or someone similar

Iamme · 23/06/2019 at 22:28

2119 for me this round, moved up nearly 7000 spots this week ,into the top 13,000
