SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 15

Published by Kev on

You guys, it’s over!! No more byes. No more relying on crappy rookies (and James Sicily) to scrape together 18 players this week. This calls for a celebration.

Sub all your guns back on field and if you’ve done this trading thing correctly, you should be looking at a team of 19-22 premiums this week. Cash gen becomes an issue at this point of the year. There’s been a few exceptions, but squeezing out 150k from rookies has been a slow burn this year. This week is the perfect opportunity to do a double downgrade as we’ll have 3-4 rookies on the bubble. Griffin Logue is a must have this week, he may be 40k more than your entry level rook but with rock solid job security and a SuperCoach friendly intercept role, stick him at D6 with confidence. 

Patch traded in Buddy last week and as result has jumped on a plane and left the Jock Reynolds Crew this week. Fozdaddy stepped up to the podcast plate in his absence and carved out a magnificent debut, which will make for some awkward selection issues when Patch finally makes his return (or has maxed out Lek’s credit card). Some of the mid-season draftees are impressing at lower level, get the lowdown with Barron in Around the Grounds. Damo sinks his teeth into 9 games worth of VC/C options, and your boi StattyMatty’s always brilliant cheat sheet is another must read. 

The News

Jackson Hately is in, community! 

But do we trade for him or not? By now Leon is not to be trusted, despite returns of 22 and 21 possessions in Hately’s two AFL games and carving it up at NEAFL level, Hately hasn’t got much of a look in. He could be the one to go when Whitfield returns in a few weeks. I wouldn’t trade a playing rook for him, even if they are maxed out cash wise. If you’re still holding onto dead wood like Bailey Scott (who is done for the year) or Will Hayes (out of favour) there’s no risk to the trade if he gets dropped again. It also depends on trades, if you’re running low hang onto them as they’ll be like gold when the season starts to draw to a close.

Sound the klaxons. Patrick Cripps is OUT. Reports are it’s a 1-2 week injury. Hold him for now but when you hear the ‘experts’ say you need trades for the end of the year, this is why. There’s three confirmed debuts over Friday and Saturday and four more on the maybe pile for Sunday. Nic Nat is BACK. Buddy is injured. and Richmond welcome back about a third of their best 22. 

As expected, no Esava at the Cats, but Darcy Fort surprisingly lost his spot. Adelaide have made three forced changes. Bryce Gibbs is back in the good books and there’s a debut for forward rookie Ben Davis (FWD – 123.9k). Wayne Milera is among the outs along with Josh Jenkins and Cam Ellis-Yolmen.

Willie Rioli returns after suspensions alongside Nic Nat. Jarrod Cameron has kept his spot which is encouraging for his job security. Jack Petruccelle is injured and can be traded for anyone still holding on. The Hawks are debuting Oliver Hanrahan (FWD – 123.9k) in one of three changes, Jarryd Roughead will miss with injury. James Rowbottom is back again for the Swans for their match against the Suns. Tagger Ryan Clarke has lost his spot. The Suns get some experience back in the form of Pearce Hanley and Touk Miller. Port are finally dusting Willem Drew off the shelf but there’s still no Tom Rocklliff. Ruck Peter Ladhams will play his second game. Joel Garner has survived and is on the bubble this week. The Dogs are going in unchanged. Kyron Hayden (FWD/MID – 102.4k) will make his debut at North. This kid tackles A LOT, keep an eye on him. A rock bottom priced DPP swing is golden at this stage of the year. Collingwood have replaced the injured Jeremy Howe with Josh Daicos.

There’s a lot to unpack in the St Kilda v Richmond match on Sunday. Jono Marsh has been dropped for the Saints as has Noah Balta for the Tigers. Jack Higgins has also been sent back to the twos to find some touch. Jack Steele has been named and there’s a possible debut for Doulton Langlands (MID/FWD – 123.9k). Ex-blue Sam Rowe is also in line to make his club debut. Experience galore returns at the Tigers; Trent Cotchin, Shane Edwards, Ivan Soldo, Kane Lambert, Jayden Short, and David Astbury are back after various injuries and ailments. Shai Bolton gets another crack and cementing a small forward spot. Zac Bailey and Jarrod Berry are back for the Lions as they host the Dees at the Gabba, there’s also a possible debut for Corey Lyons (MID – 123.9k). The Dees have added Jordan Lewis, Michael Hibberd, and Brayden Preuss to their squad, Josh Wagner is their only confirmed out. In the final game of the week, I’ll say it again – Patrick Cripps is OUT. Liam Jones returns though and former Saint Hugh Goddard (DEF – 159.6k) may debut. Freo have recalled Cam McCarthy for the injured Jesse Hogan. Adam Cerra and Lachie Schultz are among the six new additions.  

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 I said in the intro, cash gen = bad. While there’s temptation to settle for a “good” rook like Duursma or Walsh at M8 to finish, having a reliable, and more importantly, cheap proven premium at this point in the season is gold. Look no further than Rory Sloane this week. He worked his way onto many never again lists last year, but it’s time to let go of that grudge. Averaging 108.6 from 13 games this year, he has 10 scores over 100, 5 of which have been over 120. His season low of 35 came from just 25% TOG as his night ended early courtesy of a hamstring injury. The best part is his price, at just 511k he is the second cheapest top 20 mid on average. Taking out that injury affected score, his average balloons to 114.8, making him the 7th top mid on average and 120k cheaper than the similarly averaged Luke Parker. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar


From a Draftstars perspective, we’ve got two of the worst fantasy ruckman going head-to-head tonight. I joked with Damo to just put a non playing 5k ruck here and load up elsewhere but I’ll try to unravel this. Tom Bellchambers (10.5k), somewhat counter intuitively, averages 83.5DS in losses this year, compared to 56DS in wins. If you think the Giants will smash the Bombers as I do, Belly is your man. If you’re not the superstitious type, they are only $500 apart, so you could just build the rest of your lineup and take whoever fits.

Please don’t put Shaun McKernon (8.9k) in your team.


Essendon have pulled Marty Gleeson ($6.2k) from nowhere to play his first game since 2017. He laid a few eggs that year but has a ceiling of 80-90 if he can get around 18-20 touches. Averaging 17 touches (12 kicks) and 6 marks in the VFL, he should be chalky value tonight. Dylan Clarke (MID – 9.9k) hasn’t hit the heights of his 109DS against Carlton, but is cheap enough to be in play considering his role. Zac Williams (11.8k) has a massive ceiling when he gets going, Heath Shaw (12.4k) is an interesting pivot off Williams and may go overlooked. Nick Haynes (11k) is the slightly cheaper alternative, if he’s allowed to be the +1 taking easy marks he’ll hit value easily.


Dylan Clarke has kept his direct opponent to 76DS in his 3 games, but since the bye Essendon are conceding a massive 119.3 top the top 3 opposition mids, giving up huge games to Elliot Yeo (132DS) and Ricky Henderson (140DS). If you can avoid whoever Clarke tags there could be some massive scores on offer. A quick poll around the JR office wasn’t at all helpful, with Josh Kelly (17.1k), Tim Taranto (16.8k), and Stephen Coniglio (15.3k) all getting mentions. Although I suspect they were just trolling me because they are all awful people. I think he’ll go onto a wing and take either Kelly or Cogs, making Taranto and Jacob Hopper (13.4k) locks. It’s unlikely he’ll draw any attention and has shown he can hit 120DS.   


If not for some wayward kicking JJK could have gone absolutely bananas last week. He kicked 3.5 from 8 marks and embarrassed Hurley at times. A bit of recency bias may put a few off Jeremy Cameron (12.8k) onto Darcy Parish but I really like him here to bounce back against the Dons. It means sacrificing a GWS midfield premium for him though, so if you’d rather be safe you’ll need value. Jeremy Finlayson (10.8k) and Harry Himmelberg (8.8k) carry a lower ceiling than Cameron but could stretch Essendon’s defence. Jayden Laverde (8.9k) has put together a solid month of footy. Josh Begley (7.2k) has been serviceable if you need a further salary saver.    


Rivo · 27/06/2019 at 11:36

So it’s Hind over Hayley then? Either option helps me get to Sloane this week.

    Rivo · 27/06/2019 at 11:36


      SC_Kev7 · 27/06/2019 at 12:20

      Wouldn't expect Hind to nail 3 goals every week but he's the safer option. Steele 1-2 weeks away is probably the only threat to his JS. If you've already got a playing M9 and M10 then having Hately at M11 isn't the worst idea.

Leon · 27/06/2019 at 11:44

Taking hind over Hately. Lower price and Cameron can’t be trusted

KSinny · 27/06/2019 at 11:54

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on my team. I've got 9 trades and $4k in the bank.

DEF: Sicily, Houli, Ryan, Stewart, Duursma, Hore (Naish, Answerth)

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Gaff, Sloane, M. Crouch, Fyfe, Jelly, Oliver
(Bewly, Scott, Clarke)

RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Bines)

FWD: Danger, Heeney, Kelly, Boak, Marshell, Gardner (Balta, Young)

    SC_Kev7 · 27/06/2019 at 12:26

    Looking good, KSinny. F6 might be a problem this week so Duursma or Hore to Logue then Balta to Daniel / Walters / Dunkley

      Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:05

      Yeah I was thinking the same. Hope you ran with a downgrade of bore and upgrade in the forward line

Richie Porte · 27/06/2019 at 12:10

Hey guys, bringing in logue and Slone, trading out Dursma and either Answorth or Moore, which one? Or is a double downgrade the way to go. Will have 10 trades left after this week

    SC_Kev7 · 27/06/2019 at 12:20


Pieman · 27/06/2019 at 12:11

Answerth to logue and scott/Clarke to hately/hind
Will free you up some cash to upgrade balta to Daniels and possibly duursma next week

Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 12:36

What do we think community.. 11 trades 88k

DEF: hurn sicily Ryan Williams Smith duursma (answerth naish)

MID: Cripps Fyfe Macrae Neale Treloar Oliver MCrouch Walsh ( clarke bewley setterfield)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (bines)

FWD: TKelly danger Dunkley Cameron heeney Marshall (gardener Burgess )

my last defender will be Whitfield I hope and last midfielder Sloane ROB to grundy when the times right still a very low BE so not rushing it.

Regarding this week I think logue is a must and hately im 50/50 on.. Before Hatelys selection I was walsh -> Sloane duursma/answerth -> logue

but the double down is tempting duursma -> logue and setters —> hately build the bank.. obviously the issue is Hatelys JS
All other suggestions are welcome of course.

    Sam_01 · 27/06/2019 at 13:21

    I’d be planning out your upgrade targets and cash needed
    Cash is very tight even the 30k difference of hind vs hately will come into play id bring in Sloane and logue this week
    Flick Walsh and Answerth probably

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 16:55

    Answerth -> hately

    Duursma -> logue

    Leaning toward the above but will just have to miss Sloane this week and reassess next round but still hopefully go walsh -> Sloane then

    390k bank and 9 trades remaining

      redherringfc · 27/06/2019 at 17:17

      Looking at your team, I think you can skip one of the rookies this week. You can probably take a risk that who you currently have will provide enough cash for upgrades. I think you should go for Logue and Sloane.

      I don’t see a need for you, with that team, to run the risk of trading in a player who you might never be put on field, who gets dropped and who you don’t end up cashing in.

      Having said that, I’m going Hind and Hately this week, because I have 2 spuds in Scott and Hayes on my bench (and I got Logue last week)

        Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 17:47

        thanks redherring they’re very good points. I think it’ll be a last second decision I’ll make at 7:19. Like you said I may not be able too cash in on hately anyway

Rick Grimes · 27/06/2019 at 13:07

Is it just me or has the site had a snazzy facelift?

    Libba · 27/06/2019 at 13:10

    Yeh it's looking good

      Rick Grimes · 27/06/2019 at 13:44

      Ok, that's good. Thought I'd had a bad crop of mushrooms.

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 14:19

    Yeah I’m loving it. Looks the goods 🙂

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:27

    Really not a fan of a black background…feels like a Cave, black writing on a white background is the only way to go in any Forum I reckon.

James · 27/06/2019 at 13:17

backline right now is Lloyd, Williams, Laird, Sicily, Hore, Logue (Answerth, Gardner), 13 trades and $1.5k in the bank , which trades to do out of these two:

Duursma to Hind, Schultz to Naish via Gardner. Leaves me with $288k and 11 trades. Next week I can go Hore to Hurn and Stack to someone like Sloane or Duncan


Duursma to Naish via Answerth, Hore to Luke Ryan. Leaves me with 11 trades and $171k

    SC_Kev7 · 27/06/2019 at 14:44

    Liking option 1

Mahr · 27/06/2019 at 13:20

Cool restyle btw <img src="; width="1"/>

Razza · 27/06/2019 at 13:23

Totally lost on whether to go Sloane or Macrae. Have the money for either, but I guess the extra cash would be nice if i went Sloane. Thoughts?

    redherringfc · 27/06/2019 at 13:34

    Macrae is probably going to outscore Sloane, so I’d say Macrae.

    Pick the best players in each position if possible and Macrae is near the top of the pile.

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 14:18

    Depends on how the rest of ya team looks razza. Sloane is great value and if that 80k saving allows you to get Say a Lloyd instead of a houli next week then that’s when you take Sloane but If this is ya last premo spot In ya 22 and cash saved meant nothing macrae for H2H pts between the two but not a lot in it probably.

Jaxon · 27/06/2019 at 13:27

Do i drop B Smith or M Hore this week??

    Rick Grimes · 27/06/2019 at 13:47

    Hore looked bad last week. Think May is squeezing his points. I'll probably give one more week.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 27/06/2019 at 15:33

    Hore to Logue for me, May is effecting his scoring and will lose value from this point

Dash · 27/06/2019 at 14:07

10 Trade – 125K. May need to keep Duursma so I don't cop an Answerth type score.
Would love your trade advice this week. I was thinking Answerth to Logue and maybe a loophole downgrade in the midfield.
Just struggling to think what trades this week.
Lloyd, Houli. Laird, Sicily, Duursma, Answerth (Burgess, Marsh)
Fyfe, Macrae, Dunkley, Neale, Cripps, Oliver, D Clarke, Bewley (Hately, O Baker, Setterfield)
Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
Danger, T Kelly, Heeney, Boak, R Gray, J Cameron (Gardner, M Parker)

    SC_Kev7 · 27/06/2019 at 14:51

    Tick for the Answerth to Logue trade. No one in your mids looks ready to go. Parker to Naish via Burgess gets you some more cash

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2019 at 16:12

      Think that one is going to be popular.

      Also guilty 😜

      Dash · 27/06/2019 at 17:11

      Do you think Duursma should go this week. I didn't really want to play both Clarke and Hately tonight but may have to as they are midfielders in the true sense. No loophole there. I'll have to wait until the teams are named.

Matt · 27/06/2019 at 14:10

Hey guys, absolutely lost as to what my next move should be.

Team is currently. 12 trades left $115,500 in bank.

Lloyd, whitfield, sicily, ryan, hore, logue( young mckay )

Kelly, fyfe, cripps, cogs, macrae, neale, oliver, hately ( answerth, stocker o baker)

Gawn grundy

Danger, dunkley, cameron, kelly, boak, setterfield ( young gardner )

I know i have whitfield there but nows it feels to late now anyhing with him, my bench is very light all over …

Was thinking just downgrading def young to naish for cash amd cover and maybe hind for answerth for cash… but hore BE big …

Only.going for head to head wins if that makes any diff

Any suggestions out there would be sweet

FearTheBeard · 27/06/2019 at 14:11

😐 Rocky you ….

So do I put him on the bench and play Clarke for a week? Sell him for M Crouch?

    Jace · 27/06/2019 at 14:36

    Why do you still have Rocky?

    Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 14:41

    You could always put the e on Clarke. If he has a bad game then bring in Crouch.

      Fearthebeard · 27/06/2019 at 15:20

      Brilliant holty! Thanks mate

BradleyTC99 · 27/06/2019 at 14:47

Hey guys, posted this on the podcast thread and Russty gave me a good option, but would love to get another opinion or 2!

9 trades left, 4.8k in the bank
Def: Hurn, Ryan, laird, Williams, Crisp, Hore (naish, Gardner)
Mid: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, bont, Sloane, Crouch, Clarke (Answerth, Baker, Bewley)
Ruc: Gawn, Grundy (ROB)
Fwd: Dunkley, Danger, Boak, Tkelly, J Cameron, Heeney (Young, Bines)

Thinking definitely downgrade at least once this week. Also need to grab Lloyd ASAP abut would only work if I traded ROB.

Any suggestions would be great thanks guys!

Can anyone tell me Oscar Bakers BE?
Also bringing either Williams or Ryan for Hore, which one do you think? Leaning towards Ryan for consistency

    Steeeve · 27/06/2019 at 15:36

    It's 28 I reckon. I wanna go him to Hateley this week because I plan to use two trades per week for the next few (if I don't get some cash now, even if it's only 70k, it will stuff me up later).
    Wondering if I should get Hind instead and make more money just in case I need extra money later, or even if I go Hire to a forward rookie via dpp… would have to go early on the forward rookie though…

SC_Donkey · 27/06/2019 at 15:06

7 trades left for the next couple of weeks with 284k in the bank.
Can't decide of who to bring in at M8 out of
JKelly, Merrett, Parker or Duncan
Waiting on TKelly to drop in price or Marshall, Gray for the last spot at Fwd
I think Mid will be my last upgrade for the season as i cant decide who to bring in. Plus my trades are really low, need to make that last two upgrade worth it. Need durability, consistency from those players specially in the Mid.

Lloyd, Hurn, Stewart
Houli, Rich, Sicily
Rotham, Logue

Fyfe, Macrea, Cunners, Cripps
Oliver, Cogs, The Bont, Clarke
Bewley, Hind, Scott

Gawn, Grundy, Bines

Dunkley, Danger, Walters
Boak, Heeny, Setterfield
Young, Garner

TommyC99 · 27/06/2019 at 15:25

Hey guys, which option works best to set me up for the rest of the season? Got 1 upgrade in defense and midfield and hoping to get an F7 in there too! 9 trades but only 4.5k in the bank

1. Hore and Answerth – Logue and Hind (leaves 384k)
2. Hore and ROB – Lloyd and Logue (leaves 111k)

So obviously option 2 nets me the most points this week. But i'm also looking towards the next couple of weeks where im eyeing off Robbie young – Tom Hawkins as F6 so i can push Cameron to F7. Thoughts guys?

Cliffy · 27/06/2019 at 15:29

Looking to paint the fence this week, need help guys in choosing one of these options:

Option A (expensive mid option)

Duursma – Logue (plays at D6 for the next few weeks)
Walsh – JKelly

Option B (less expensive mid option)

Duursma – Logue
Walsh – Sloane/Merrett/Duncan

I'll be left with one Mid and one Def spot left to upgrade with either of these options I go with, what do we think all?
Still got to wait on other teams to come out later too, hopefully, they don't affect my decision too much.

    redherringfc · 27/06/2019 at 15:59

    If you’re upgrading your other mid next week, go for option 2 and then get Kelly next week. He has a BE of 151, projected at 128 with a 10k loss. The risk is is if he gets 175 he’ll go up 10k.

Steeeve · 27/06/2019 at 15:31

How much does Hore drop if he scores another 50?

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2019 at 15:43

    He will drop around $23K back to $400K.

    Beezneex · 27/06/2019 at 15:56

    I'm punting him to be about $413k next week.

Defying_Madness · 27/06/2019 at 15:38

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on my team. Have 13 trades and 177k in the bank.

DEF: Lloyd, Sicily, Williams, Smith, Logue, Hore (Duursma, Buurgess)

MID: Fyfe, Neale, M Crouch, Bont, Macrae, Cogs, Cripps, Clarke (Bewley, Baker, Scott)

RCK: Gawn, Grundy (Sweet)

FWD: Danger, Kelly, Gray, Heeney, Marshall, Daniel (Young, Gardner)

Aiming on getting Sloane and Hurn over the next couple weeks and then waiting a bit for cash to get my D6. Logue should be decent in the meantime. Not sure about the best way to get it done or if these are even my best moves.

    redherringfc · 27/06/2019 at 15:51

    You could get Hurn in immediately, but his break even is 161.

    Who are you looking at for the other defender? I’d be tempted to get Laird at just over 500k this week, probably for Duursma.

    I’d also jump on either Hind or Hately for Scott.

    Last point, it might cost an extra trade, but J Kelly instead of Sloane.

      Defying_Madness · 27/06/2019 at 17:55

      Thanks for the response. Was considering something like Baker to Sloane and Duursma/Hore to Naish. Was thinking at waiting a week on Hurn since he has a high BE and trade out whichever one of Hore/Duursma survives this week. For the other defender I was tempted to wait until Whitfield comes back as Logue should hold the fort at D6 for a while and I am low on available cash. Other options I was looking at are Houli who should drop in price by the time I have enough to afford him. Ryan, Laird and Stewart are other ones I would consider but it would mainly depend on form, my bank and current prices. Hately and Hind are tempting as well as they should appreciate nicely to help speed up my money problem. I would like Kelly in my team but I don't know if I have enough cash left to get 2 defenders and Kelly.

Beezneez · 27/06/2019 at 15:52

SC projection is 2500 this week. The only line sub premo is my def. 10 trades and only $14k.
Def is Lloyd, Laird, Williams, B Smith, Hore and Duursma (Naish, Gardner/Burgess).
Would appreciate som advice on the best option.
1. Burgess to Logue and any of
Baker to Hind – allows only Hore to Hurn next week.
Lockhart to Hately or Hind – allows any of B Smith, Hore or Duursma to Hurn next week.
2. Duursma to Logue and Hore to Hurn this week – only uses 2 trades but lose some flexibility.

The mighty wokkas · 27/06/2019 at 16:38

Is it worth trading a rookie with a lot of cash left to make to bring in Sloane? I’m thinking trading bewley so I can be 1 player off full premo

    Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 16:45

    Personally no but who is to say what’s right or wrong in this situation. 🤔

    redherringfc · 27/06/2019 at 17:32

    At some point in the season it makes sense. It depends on where your team is at. It sounds like it wouldn’t be too bad for you to pull the trigger early on Bewley.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 14:07

      You rang?

Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 16:43

Everybody panic. 😱

    hedski · 27/06/2019 at 17:20

    Trying not to until teams drop Holty, then it's mass panic 😥

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2019 at 17:25

    I am nervous Holty, but not panicking yet. That might happen at 4.30 pm (Perth time) when teams drop. I have Answerth, Gibbons, and Balta, and have spuds like Garner and Burgess as well. Cant afford for the axe to fall on my rooks, then its full blown panic mode.

Bobby · 27/06/2019 at 17:27

Sick Crippa is out…..

    dontblushbaby · 27/06/2019 at 18:26

    He is in 63% of teams though, like we all have him

KSinny · 27/06/2019 at 18:26

Which forward do i get for under 510k? Will be my F6

Matt · 27/06/2019 at 18:26

Hey guys, absolutely lost as to what my next move should be. 

Team is currently. 12 trades left $115,500 in bank. 

Lloyd, whitfield, sicily, ryan, hore, logue( young mckay ) 

Kelly, fyfe, cripps, cogs, macrae, neale, oliver, hately ( answerth, stocker o baker) 

Gawn grundy 

Danger, dunkley, cameron, kelly, boak, setterfield ( young gardner ) 

I know i have whitfield there but nows it feels to late now anyhing with him, my bench is very light all over … 

Was thinking just downgrading def young to naish for cash amd cover and maybe hind for answerth for cash… but hore BE big … 

Only.going for head to head wins if that makes any diff 

Any suggestions out there would be sweet

Lekdog · 27/06/2019 at 18:28


    Saritz · 27/06/2019 at 18:29

    only because McKay and Cripps are out for your beloved Blues

iLoveNMFC · 27/06/2019 at 18:30

Which two to loophole for Cripps out of Clarke, Hind and Bewley?

Rick Grimes · 27/06/2019 at 18:35

Clarke and Bewley. That's what I'm doing.

    Rocksta_ · 27/06/2019 at 18:41


Rocksta_ · 27/06/2019 at 18:40

Answerth named on field. There goes my Grundy onto Gawn

KSinny · 27/06/2019 at 18:42

Who to get between Parish, Gray, Billings and Hawkins?

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:22

    I like Gray out of those 4 Sinny, nice 3 round av.

Rocksta_ · 27/06/2019 at 18:43

Surely Clarke goes to Cogs tonight?

    hedski · 27/06/2019 at 19:12

    Hope not have the vc on him

Kazz · 27/06/2019 at 18:53

Hey guys can I do a trade during the round? Say on Friday night after the Essendon GWS game?

    James Sykes · 27/06/2019 at 18:55

    yes as long as those players arent from the thursday game. also once a trade is done after the start of the round you cannot reverse it.

Dash · 27/06/2019 at 18:59

Loophole Clarke or Hately tonight?

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:05


      Dash · 27/06/2019 at 19:05

      So Keep Clarke on field you reckon for tonight?

        Brn · 27/06/2019 at 19:14

        Im confused. Play hately before d clarke

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:20

    Clarke on the bench in case he scores bugger all.

      Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 20:05

      That’s what I did

TelescopicCox · 27/06/2019 at 19:00

Go for Sloane this week or grab Hately on a double down? Leaning to Sloane as and worrying about cash gen next week

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:04

    I am in the EXACT same boat TC!!
    i think i am taking sloane with crippa out and going to let hately sail.
    But do not feel good about it at all

      TelescopicCox · 27/06/2019 at 19:10

      Went Hately. Could be a bargain M8 while I improve my weak backline.

    Sam_01 · 27/06/2019 at 19:07

    If you have trades to make use out of hately and possibly field him or loop him then take him
    I’m down to 6 trades and it’s just not worth me getting him sadly was thinking of getting him for some solid cover but I just won’t make enough coin to make it worthwhile

TommyC99 · 27/06/2019 at 19:04

Hately or Hind?

BradleyTC99 · 27/06/2019 at 19:06

Is it worth trading ROB – Lloyd this week or going the double down and doing answerth – Hind/hately. Only 7 trades left after 2 this week

s c tragic · 27/06/2019 at 19:11

Just when you thought it was safe to exhale , cripps drops a bombshell, rethinking trades and moves and nOW I 'M PANICING !!!!!!!!

    Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:13


Brn · 27/06/2019 at 19:13

Can see a lot of people getting hately due to crippsnout but im backing in d clarke into o baker to cover for cripps.

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:15

    I still dont know know if to get sloane logue or logue hately!!
    his poor JS and whitfield back in a week or two scares me…

      Defying_Madness · 27/06/2019 at 19:17

      I am taking a pass on Hately and getting in Sloane this week I think. Already have Logue but need to bring in a defender and mid so Sloane and Naish it is I think.

        Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:20

        I went hately!!

      TommyC99 · 27/06/2019 at 19:17

      Such a tough one. I’m panicking big time!!! At this stage I’m going hind

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 13:05

    I ended up not getting him in since none of my mid rookies are ready to trade out yet. I have Stack, Drew, Baker, Clarke and Bewley.

Defying_Madness · 27/06/2019 at 19:13

Who goes first, Hore or Duursma?

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 27/06/2019 at 20:59


      Defying_Madness · 28/06/2019 at 19:35

      I am thinking I might trade Hore first, this is a very hard decision

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 12:59

    I'm keeping both until they aren't playing anymore.

JEL · 27/06/2019 at 19:28

Where is that PANIC button…… what/where/when did Cripps get injured?

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:39

    CARLTON superstar Patrick Cripps will miss his first match since 2017 on Sunday, with a sprained foot preventing him from facing Fremantle.

    Cripps sustained the injury in the three-point loss to the Western Bulldogs before the bye and failed to recover sufficiently despite the week off.
    He is one of the leading fancies for this year's Brownlow Medal despite the Blues' struggles and could miss multiple games, so this setback could have wider ramifications.

    Well this is some bad bloody news!

      JEL · 27/06/2019 at 19:48

      Wonder why it wasn't reported on the Official AFL Injury list, especially if it's been 2 weeks?

        Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 20:01

        Probably cause he's the glue that holds that fragile Team together, and maybe normally he toughs it out through niggles, because he's superhuman. Must be pretty sore now though.

          JEL · 27/06/2019 at 21:23

          So true

Big G · 27/06/2019 at 19:45

Talk he may miss 2

Maverick_ · 27/06/2019 at 19:54

I think i did a bad bad thing bringing it Hately
I panicked my finger slipped on the trade button and he accidentally landed in my team..

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 20:03

    25 points with 16 mins to go in the 2nd quarter with 7 disposals is pretty good for a rook Mav, he'll be right.
    The issue with him is, will he continue to play, not his scoring ability.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 13:07

    Who did you trade out for him Mav. You were thinking about Answerth in one of your other posts, if so it was probably a good trade, as long as Hately gets a few games in a row that is. His JS was my main worry, plus none of my mid rookies were ready to trade out.

      Maverick_ · 28/06/2019 at 14:22

      I went duursma -> logue and answerth -> hately John.
      I hope hately gets one more week to prove himself before whitfield is back.
      He is far too good to be wasting away in the NEAFL getting his 35+ touches each week

Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 20:04

Best thing I did this year was start Williams
Worst thing was trading him out.

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 20:08

    I feel that pain sharply The Holt…I traded him out after his 60 odd for Stewart, and then Whitfield went out and Williams proceeded to go nuts…and has gone ever since Whitfield has been out…and Stewart has been ok but not scoring like Williams.
    Williams is smashing it without Whit in the side.

    hedski · 27/06/2019 at 20:09

    Same, to Whitfield the week he got injured….

    Beezneez · 28/06/2019 at 17:09

    I traded him for Lloyd when he got injured thinking it would be longer than a week. I then traded him back in when Whitfield went down. Not too much damage done (1 trade).

Holty01 · 27/06/2019 at 20:33

Hately only 62% tog and still on 40. 🤔

    Derek · 28/06/2019 at 16:11

    Next week could be 0% TOG

      Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 17:48

      Yep, his wasn’t the best game … and a couple of mistakes in the last qtr cost them… back to the NEAFL for a few weeks, or maybe the rest of the year I think Derek..

Rick Grimes · 27/06/2019 at 20:36

So, Cripps looking at multiple weeks out. Hold or fold?

    Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 20:44

    Gotta hold I think Rick…how would you get him back in?
    Many weeks to go…and miles to go before we sleep.

    Tony · 27/06/2019 at 20:46

    Some Carlton supporter on fanfooty said he’s out for the season… I hope he was joking!

    JohnDJ59 · 27/06/2019 at 22:41

    If you have cover, hold.

      Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 08:11

      Hold for at least this round until the information is more clear. Personally I’ll give him at least two weeks before I even consider what trade options might be available.

    redherringfc · 28/06/2019 at 12:23

    I’m having a serious think about it. It’s the only way to avoid a donut in my forwards, using dpp of Answerth and Gardner. I’ll bring in Boak. I’ve got a day and bit to mull it over.

Tony · 27/06/2019 at 20:47

I didn’t take hately, watch him stay in the side for 6 weeks

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 27/06/2019 at 20:58

    I traded Hately in Round 8, missed adjusting trades when he didn't get named. Finally get to put him to some use!

Scarpi · 27/06/2019 at 20:59

Hey Community I have 9 Trades Left and 207k In the bank any Advice Will help.

My team Is:

D: Lloyd, Laird, Ryan, Sicily, Houli, Burgess (Rotham, Naish)
M: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Gaff, Taranto, Kelly, B.Crouch (Bewerly, Answerth, Scott)
R: Gawn, Grundy (O'Brien)
F: Dunkley, Boak, Henney, Dangerfield, Parker, Petruccelle (Bines, Young)

    Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:12

    Petrucelle swing to burgess and downgrade to griffen.
    Parker up to c. Daniel

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/06/2019 at 21:00

Can't believe i held Rockliff all through the byes only to be repaid with this sh*t. How could he have been fit enough to fly to china to only just not come up, but then miss 5 weeks? What a fkn joke

    silversovereign · 27/06/2019 at 22:23

    Haha I hear ya ab. Same here. Held him and drew. Eventually had to trade drew and then he gets a game this week and Rocky doesn’t. That’s SuperCoach!

    Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:10

    Very unlucky. Once again he let's the community down for having faith.

      Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 08:07

      I had faith until China… football department funded holiday by the looks.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 13:50

    Classic burn man

    Beezneez · 28/06/2019 at 14:20

    This morning's Adelaide paper says there is a slight cloud over Houston and Rocky may come in. Check for late outs.

Bill · 27/06/2019 at 21:41

Hately looking good
<img src="; width="1"/>

    Tony · 27/06/2019 at 22:04

    He’ll be dropped again, had a few bad moments

Russty_ · 27/06/2019 at 21:52

Sorry if I offend anyone but I hate this new format, the sizing is all fk'd up, (too big in some places)..a bit out of whack all round… the colours are all dark and gloomy, not really sure why it would require a change of this magnitude at this time of year. I think it was just fine as it was…just my opinion.
Like it or lump it, I'm not feeling encouraged to post here the way it is now. Sorry, but not a fan at all.

    Tony · 27/06/2019 at 22:03

    At least it’s a white background now, the black background was terrible!

    JEL · 27/06/2019 at 22:03

    Looks like it's gone back to the old format (at least for me).
    Happy for them to try new things and see what the response is.
    It did seem a bit too dark.

    JohnDJ59 · 27/06/2019 at 22:05

    I don't mind it, I think they tried it a few months back for a few days, having said that, I'm finding my eyes are hurting a bit from looking at it, so maybe the old way was better.

    Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 08:24

    Not sure it's worth a boycott over.

    The Ranger · 28/06/2019 at 10:27

    I'm the polar opposite. I liked the black.
    But then I have Outlook set up with a black background at work and everyone seems to think that's weird.

    Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 12:01

    Red writing is not good for many folk regardless of background … and I’m allergic to anything Red and Black related to footy.. makes me wanna throw up 😁

    I noticed the umps liked Red and Black very much in the last quarter last night 😡

      redherringfc · 28/06/2019 at 16:50

      Frees were 29 – 14, near the end. Not something I’d normally look up, but I needed to check to see if it was just my bias.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 14:04

    When has that ever stopped ya rust? 🙊

    Beezneez · 28/06/2019 at 14:17

    It's very hard to read. I have a torn retina and a drooping eyelid covering the pupil in my good eye so I find it very difficult. I cannot read the time of the posting at all unless I magnify it. I use the icon next to the refresh button to read the article with a white background but doesn't show the comments at all. With you Russty – awful. Also whenever I post something lately I have to re-enter my name and email address which is annoying and stops me from doing so most times. Wish I knew how to prevent it happening.

Tony · 27/06/2019 at 22:01

Take Clarke’s awkward score or field bewley/setterfield?

    Brn · 27/06/2019 at 22:10

    Wondering the same.
    Dont think theres much to lose by fielding bewley or setters. Im torn between oscar baker and bewley, but will probobly go bewley because they are plaing calton

      DavidC · 28/06/2019 at 09:15

      O Baker and Bewley have only gone 60+ once and are averaging 55. As disappointing as Clarke's 63 is I think I'll take it.

        Brn · 28/06/2019 at 09:30

        Yeah but with an average of 54 and 55, there would seem more to gain than lose. – 8 odd points is fine, but the possibility of the rare 80 -100 score (+ 30 odd points) makes it worrh a shot for me

    Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:09

    Yeah I have to field 2 spots now crips is out and I have hind and bewley. Not sure if I taken both or chose one not to take? Leaning towards both over that 58

    JEL · 28/06/2019 at 16:58

    Yep, it's a bit of a maybe score.
    I've got 2 spots to fill with Clarke / Bewley / Hind.
    I'm leaning towards Hind to fill the hole left by Cripps, and taking Clarke's score.

JugHead · 27/06/2019 at 22:15

Will be interesting to hear the chat about Cripps not playing this week. The elephant in the room is the Optus surface. Who knows how serious his injury is, but if it was a line ball decision whether to play him, taking him over to play on a ground that Freo have decided is too hard for training on would have to be a factor.

Sam_01 · 27/06/2019 at 22:25

Just a quick one why has mundy a scoring gone to shit hasn’t tonnes in 4 weeks

    Derek · 28/06/2019 at 00:27

    Ross worked out Walters did ok as a midfielder

Trades · 27/06/2019 at 22:42

6 trades left.
Westhoff F6 Burgess & Gardner bench so I must trade.
Westhoff to Boak
Smith to Cameron via Burgess
Losing my ruck swing
Or get in Lycett?

    Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 08:09

    I wouldn’t stress about a ruck swing for now. Lycett was a good spend at 430. At nearly 500 and some uncertainty about how Ryder returns, mmmm not so much.

      Trades · 28/06/2019 at 08:56

      I think dunkley’s too expensive.
      Boak Gray or Daniel?

Marcus · 27/06/2019 at 22:49

I am thinking of replacing Brodie Smith with Daniel Rich.
Is this a good move ?
I can get Laird or Lloyd , but i would rather use the $$ to get a final premium mid.

    Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 07:53

    Especially Lloyd

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 12:58

    You need Lloyd.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 13:53

    Bit sideways for mine

TBone_9 · 27/06/2019 at 22:56

Bringing Westhoff in must be my biggest mistake of the year, if Parker isn’t named for Saints tommorow then I have to trade him, but I would prefer to wait until next week and deal with B. Smith and Hore for now as they will lose coin. Although very tempting to just trade him straight up to R. Gray/Daniel/Marshall and not look back…

    JohnDJ59 · 27/06/2019 at 22:59

    Trade him to R.Gray.

      TBone_9 · 27/06/2019 at 23:44

      That’s all I need to hear hahaha. Westhoff to R. Gray, B. Smith to Logue. Got 365k to play with for upgrades next week, BANG!

        JohnDJ59 · 27/06/2019 at 23:58

        Good move TBone, I traded B.Smith out in round 13 to get Laird in.

          TBone_9 · 28/06/2019 at 00:16

          Cheers DJ. And I bet you haven’t looked back once mate!

            JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 00:25

            No I haven't, though at the time I thought this is a bit of a luxury trade, since I wasn't trading out a rookie, but it was the only way I could afford Laird and my rookies were still making money.

    Derek · 28/06/2019 at 00:24

    Hoff to Walters for me.

    Although I can go Parker to JJK and have Hoff at F7

    What do you reckon fellas

      JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 13:22

      Hoff to Walters works for me, but feel you are two weeks late.

    redherringfc · 28/06/2019 at 12:54

    I got Westhoff and Gardner 2 weeks ago. Both are sitting on my forward line with Corbett and I have no dpp’s available to move anyone into the forwards. I only have 26k after already trading Scott to Hately. There are no forward downgrade options. And Westhoff at 376k means I can’t upgrade him.

    So Westhoff was a huge mistake, but I’m contemplating topping that one by ditching Cripps, using some dpp magic and getting a decent forward.

      Trades · 28/06/2019 at 15:18

      Or trade Westhoff to McDonald

        redherringfc · 28/06/2019 at 15:34

        My first thought was:

        “I’m not deliberately trying to sabotage my own team.”

        But I checked out his scores. Was he playing forward last week? I notice he’s named as full forward this week.

        I might trade Hore to McDonald. I’m too stubborn to trade out the Hoff, just yet.

        That’s a pretty good suggestion. Thanks.

          Trades · 28/06/2019 at 15:41

          Yeah his last few games have been good. No worries.

Peedgd · 27/06/2019 at 23:07

What a great read!
Get on here and the new layout is so fluid, clean and gorgous.

Steeeve · 28/06/2019 at 00:00

I almost threw my three week trade plan out the window to bring in Hateley. I thought he played well but I'm glad I didn't get him in.

Leaving Hateley out meant I had two options.
1. Bring in Sloane and easily afford my final upgrades.
2. Bring in J Kelly and hope all goes right to afford my last upgrade – would be a few grand in it!!!

I've gone with option 2. Gotta swing for the fences. Good luck in the run home everyone, I'm definitely gonna need it!

Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 00:21

The plan was to bring in Ryan, but I just couldn’t resist Sloane’s price. Leaves me Duursma/Logue D5/6 until I can trade O’Brien and Duursma for last 2 Premo spots (Any 2 of Ryan, Stewart, Rich). And then 5 trades to see it through.

Ryan · 28/06/2019 at 00:43

Who should I bring in, Sloane or Oliver?

    Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 08:03

    Why not both? I’ve had Oliver all year and he’s been a little disappointing at times, but his gone 114 or better in 5 of his last 6. Sloane has a good run home and I couldn’t resist him this week either.

Stupid Coach · 28/06/2019 at 05:48

Great work Kev. 12 trades left. Contemplating one of the following trade options this week:

1. Answerth to Logue and Walsh to Neale.
2. Answerth to Logue and Stack to Bont.
3. Wilkie to Logue and Stack to Neale or Bont
4. Answerth to Liogue and Stack to Hind – already have Baker, Brewley and Clarke.

Leaning towards Option 2 given Answeth's high BE.

VC – Lloyd Vs Sun's or Danger at the cattery.

Do I take Clarke's score for Cripps or role the dice with Brewley or Baker.

Thanks community.

    Ned_Starkers · 28/06/2019 at 07:59

    If you’re a premium or two short in the middle, I’d say you gotta go 1 or 2. By weight of numbers, I’d say your keen to get rid of Answerth (I did too this week). I got rid of Walsh and Stack a couple of weeks ago, they’ve done enough, so take your pick.

    As for captains, Gawn and Grundy haven’t let me down yet, but I can see the temptation for Danger at home at least.

      Stupid Coach · 28/06/2019 at 12:36

      Thanks Ned. My current midfield is McCrae, Cripps, Merrett, Coniglio, Oliver, Sloane, Walsh, Stack (Clarke, Brewley, Baker). It is either upgrading Walsh to Neale or Stack to Bont. I would like to upgrade Settlefield or Parker in my forward line instead but they haven't generated as much cash as I would hope and Neale/Bont appear to be at a great price at the moment.

COREYSC · 28/06/2019 at 09:54

Jed Bews comes in for Geelong tonight for his customary 1 game for the year (against Adelaide) to play on Eddie Betts and keep him to one goal

BigAl_15 · 28/06/2019 at 09:55

Hey guys, I have 13 trades left and $40,000

Not sure what trades to do:

Balta – Caleb Daniel
Balta – Marshall

I’m definitely going to trade Hore – Logue but not sure about who to trade Balta to
I already have T Kelly, Dangerfield, Mundy and Boak as my premo forwards


    Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 12:13

    Marshall, only because he has a higher ceiling …. but either is a good choice..

The Ranger · 28/06/2019 at 10:33

Normally I'd take Clarkes 63 but I'm tempted to risk going with Hind instead, he looked good last week.

Fritzzzy · 28/06/2019 at 11:19

Community thoughts on David Mundy? He's had a shocking last few rounds but only $446k for someone who can bounce back to 100-105 average. I'm sitting with $481k needing a Fwd… so choices are limited…

    Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 12:11

    I'd wait for his first "return to form" game before making the move Fritzzzy.. maybe think about Robbie Gray, or Cameron or even Heeney, though he is probably in the same boat as Mundy.

      Fritzzzy · 28/06/2019 at 12:20

      I'd love to but have to make the move this week with Petruccelle out. Gray's a good option too. Considered Cameron but he's too flakey for me. I'm just not clear why Mundy's dropped so hard. He broke his nose against the Pies, then dropped form since. I don't think his role has changed at all though? I guess he's always been somewhat inconsistent.

    Sam_01 · 28/06/2019 at 13:21

    Similar position mate I brought Toby Greene in as a cheapy for ROB a while ago bc I needed points on field, he has been alright but I’m having a look for a cheeky upgrade
    Hawkins will be cheap soon and mundy aswell

      Fritzzzy · 28/06/2019 at 16:45

      I think I'm going to bite the bullet on Mundy. He'll push out a couple of sub 70's before the end of the year… but he'll also more than likely throw in a few +120's and at least 4/5 +100's. Or do his hammy in Q1 and burn me. #supercoach

        Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:17

        There are better options i reckon, depending on who you have got. PODs can go both ways

Mike · 28/06/2019 at 13:18

Tough decisions are to be made <img src="; width="1"/>

Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 13:21

Anyone actually know how bad Cripps is? The "multiple" weeks rumour is concerning. I'm not sure I can hold him for 3-4 weeks. And when comes back is he restricted. Or do they pull the pin on his season. Hmmmm

    Sam_01 · 28/06/2019 at 13:50

    cripps is a warrior I’ll back him to come back in a couple of weeks

      Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:15

      He will be good max 2 weeks

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 14:00

    It's a head scratcher ricko due to the half truths and rumour mill going onto overdrive.

    This is where for the sake of supercoach for the medos to come out and say point blank not we think Cripps will miss 1-2 or 4-6.

    With trades remaiming in the shed I probably best just to go into a holding pattern.

TommyC99 · 28/06/2019 at 15:06

Is it worth trading ROB now to Lloyd this week or downgrade Answerth – Hind and get lloyd in the next week or 2?

    Ja191 · 28/06/2019 at 15:22

    You’ve held rob this long my aswell wait and get his $ now id he downgrading to logue/hind/naish

Trades · 28/06/2019 at 15:19

Keep Hore or Smith?

    Ja191 · 28/06/2019 at 15:21

    Is neither an option? But if I had to pick I’d prob keep Smith it’s pretty 50/50 tho

      Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:15

      I agree with smith, but a lot dont. Guess we will see

hedski · 28/06/2019 at 17:07

Naish omitted….
Guess I can loop Smith with Answorth now, I'll take anything over 35 from Brodie, Yay.

    Holty01 · 28/06/2019 at 17:22

    🤔 that will change my trades for the week.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:22

    I wouldn't even bother Hed, I'm just leaving Smith on, Answerth is a spud.

      hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:27

      Yeah was tongue in cheek Russty.
      Never know tho, Smith could get injured 5 minutes in so might as well take advantage of the loophole.
      Go cats.

        Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:46

        Go Cats mate and go Danger VC! 🙂

Holty · 28/06/2019 at 17:08

Stewart or Ryan for my last spot in the backline?

    Holty01 · 28/06/2019 at 17:14

    Well hello fellow Holty. I’d say pretty close but Ryan has the bigger ceiling imo

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2019 at 17:30

      Its like im seeing double

      Maverick_ · 28/06/2019 at 17:31

      3 Holty's in one community… Hello fellow Holtys
      I like ryan for the simple reason of his huge ceiling

TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 17:26

Plan to bring in Logue for either Hore or Duursma, but not sure which. Who do we think will score better over the next few weeks?

Also if going for overall, can we have one of hore / duursma / logue as D6 until Whitfield returns, or need to go for another premo def ASAP?

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 17:42

    I'm keeping both Hore and Duursma for now, so that is a very had question to answer. Hore has a higher average, his only bad game was last week, but his BE is higher and so could lose more cash than Duursma. It could depend on your cash situation on which one to trade out since Hore is worth $137,900 more than Duursma. Also having one of the three at D6 should be fine for the next two weeks or so.

    BigAl_15 · 28/06/2019 at 18:01

    I’d say keep hore as he is more consistent despite his high breakeven

Daniel · 28/06/2019 at 17:30

With Naish dropped who do I loophole with Logue this week, brodie smith away to the cats or james sicily against darling and jjk?

    Ja191 · 28/06/2019 at 17:37

    Smith easily, I reckon Sicily will play back now and easily outscore Smith

BradleyTC99 · 28/06/2019 at 17:45

Probably a stupid question but is there any merit in going Naish – Hind instead of answerth? Netting no money at all but already have gardner and Young as pointless rookies. I only have 7 trades left (after this week) so probably pointless but thought i'd get the community's opinion!

    Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 18:27

    Naish won’t lose you any money this week, whereas Answerth will … easy peasy

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:19

    Naish was pretty stiff to get dropped I feel after 2 decent rookie scores, I have him too and think he'll get another run whereas Answerth is very Balta-like but without the few big scores, Hind named as half fwd onfield is encouraging and I think you'd be better off doing something that makes you some money.

Dash · 28/06/2019 at 17:55

10 Trades – 125K. I'm stuck
Thinking Marsh > Logue & Duursma to Sloane via DPP
Could do Answerth > Logue & Duursma to Stewart
Any other trade thoughts or which option is best. Not much cash generation happening

Lloyd, Houli. Laird, Sicily, Duursma, Answerth (Burgess, Marsh)
Fyfe, Macrae, Dunkley, Neale, Setterfield, Oliver, D Clarke, Bewley (Hately, O Baker, Cripps)
Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
Danger, T Kelly, Heeney, Boak, R Gray, J Cameron (Gardner, M Parker)

    Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 18:26

    Hey Dash, not sure about Marsh, but Answerth and Durrsmaa both have BEs above their average … I think Sloane is a better option than Stewart.. so I’d go option 1 if Marsh has maxed out for you.

      Dash · 28/06/2019 at 18:29

      Well Marsh has been dropped by StKilda. May or may not get back in. Answerth keeps getting a game, so may be some insurance even though he may score a 40. Not sure.

        Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 18:45

        Hi Dash, I also like Marsh to Logue and Duursma to Sloane, can't go wrong really unless Logue turns out to be fool's gold but I don't think he is, and he has good js.

Lazza · 28/06/2019 at 18:02

Hey Neil (NDD), we are head-to-head in the JR Mega League … SC is predicting 2411 v 2404 in your favour … looking fwd to the battle .. good luck.. cheers, Lazza (Raw Tiger)

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 18:40

    Sounds like a nail biter Lazza, lots of close predictions in the leagues this week, I've got Holty twice and am up against plenty of high end coaches this week, DBB, Rick Grimes, JohnDJ, Instagator Col, hoping a few of my Pods stand up, good luck this week mate.

      Lazza · 29/06/2019 at 09:48

      Cheers, Russty… you’ve got a tough gig this week..

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:44

    If I go well from here, I might just make the top 16 LOL

TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 18:26

With Cripps out for Carlton, will that impact Logues scoring – as the blues may struggle to get the pill out of the center and into the forward line for Logue to intercept?

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:06

    He could be a bit down on his last few weeks possibly but it's not reason enough to not get him in now.

      TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 19:18

      Absolutely – as long as he's not a late withdrawal, I'm bringing him in! I was more thinking about who to start on the field, Logue or Hore (or Duursma if I trade out Hore for Logue instead).

        Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:26

        I'd say, just because of how most rookies this year on their 3rd games have gone…start Hore over Logue.
        Most rooks seem to shit the bed on their 3rd game…and Hore over Duursma too…higher average.

    hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:28

    Could improve his scores if the balls getting bombed in willy Nilly.

    Derek · 28/06/2019 at 21:15

    He would/should be on bench

Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 18:46

Is anyone out there 1 for 1 in the tips so far?…I tipped Giants by 35 lol

    TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 18:54

    I tipped the Dons by 5…..but then I do every week as I'm a supporter 🙂

      Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:02

      Nice work mate!…I usually tip against my team (the Saints)..because they mostly suck.
      Hope you get your others right as it could give you a huge leg up this week in your tipping leagues.

        TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 19:19

        I wish but sadly tipping the dons each week hasn't exactly helped my tipping results most weeks!

          Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:23

          Gotta play this game with your head and not your heart mate…especially in tipping!

            Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:27

            Unless you are a cats fan 😀

              hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:30

              I nearly tipped against us last week Brn knowing how bad we are after byes.
              Couldn't do it.

              Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:44

              Yeah Brn…certainly helps when your team is good 🙂

KeenButClueless · 28/06/2019 at 18:52

One of the weeks i dread the most. Had a very simple plan for this week that I sketched out prior to the byes. This week was Duursma and Parker for Treloar and Naish. Left rocky as my M8 and Newnes as my F6, and had Moore seining ad an emergency across all lines, with some ok loophole options. Not a great team, but not totally crap either. I hate this sort of week, because with Newnes dropping a turd last week and getting himself dropped accordingly, and Rocky being Rocky, it all has to change. So it’s Rocky and Newnes our for Sloane and Garner. Nothing like I planned. Duursma is F8, and Parker is on the pine (thankfully). Now I also need to fill a mid and a forward spot in the next few weeks. Am I crazy to consider McKernan as F6 with Bellchambers out? Yeah, it’s close to that desperate 😩

So I hate these weeks, because they inevitably turn to crap and the original plan was still probably the right one and I end up in an angry funk on Sunday night.

Good luck to everyone this week

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 19:00

    Hey Keen, if you meant Duursma is M8, you could see how Hannebery goes this week, if he scores well again, could allow you to get someone better than McKernan

      KeenButClueless · 28/06/2019 at 19:05

      That’s a really good option Russty. Thanks for that.

        Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:37

        Dont know your $ situation but c curnow a good fwd

Defying_Madness · 28/06/2019 at 18:57

If I need to bring in a rookie in the FWD or DEF and already have Logue who is my best bet?

    TommyC99 · 28/06/2019 at 19:03

    Rose is probably you're best bet but his inflated price tag, meh scoring and unsure JS would make him a questionable rookie

      Defying_Madness · 28/06/2019 at 19:31

      Was considering Cameron. Had a good first game and has DPP at least if he gets dropped. Anyone know what his JS is like?

KSinny · 28/06/2019 at 19:11

Went Hawkins over Robbie Gray this week 😬 go big or go home I guess!

    TommyC99 · 28/06/2019 at 19:13

    Im eyeing off tomahawk next week as an F6/F7. Nice run home and nice price. Hoping Talia beats him tonight though!

      Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:25

      Haskins had a down week and will kill it tonight. Cats by 50+

        hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:33

        Wish I was that confident this week Brn, I'll be happy with the W from the cats 👍

    hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:31

    Have them both F5&6 Skinny, Tommy killed me last week, he'll come good, hopefully tonight.

Brn · 28/06/2019 at 19:29

Crows dont tag much but think they will with danger.
Who has the balls to VC kelly instead?

    hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:36

    Does Greenwood go to Danger?
    I VC'd Cogs last night.
    Danger gets the armband.

    JugHead · 28/06/2019 at 19:37

    Well…..I've been thinking Grundy into Gawn all week…….but Danger should be well rested…its at the cattery…I'm gunna VC him…….could be wrong of course, but I think he will tear Adelaide a new one.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2019 at 21:00

    Well done anyone who did.

hedski · 28/06/2019 at 19:46

Just realised how invested I am in the cats and crows, have 4 players from each team in tonight.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 20:06

    I've got 6 and so far 3 of them are doing fk all Hed 🙁

      Swans2012 · 28/06/2019 at 20:12

      Is laird even playing?

        TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 20:15

        I dunno but at least my opponent also has him so it's a wash for league… do 40% of teams so hopefully not too bad for overall.

TheLostBoys · 28/06/2019 at 20:08

Wonder if anyone stuck with ROB on the field over Grundy / Gawn? 37 already with 8 and a half to go in the first!
Glad I've got him on the bench at least for some cash in a few weeks 🙂

    Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 20:30

    I'm running ROB at R2.

      Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 20:50

      Damn you Grimes!

        Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 11:18

        Will wait too see what nicnat does

    RealDealNeale · 29/06/2019 at 11:56

    ROB at R2 instead of Gawn. Might bring in Gawn over the stretch run

Pranav · 28/06/2019 at 20:12

Just realised I don’t have the e on rob. Shouldn’t matter but will look really stupid if Grundy or Gawn is a late out

Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 20:22

Ground control to Major Laird…your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me Major Laird…can you hear me Major Laird?

    Defying_Madness · 28/06/2019 at 20:23

    Smith useless as well. Ended up trading Hore over Duursma and Smith. Probably going to regret it

    Holty01 · 28/06/2019 at 20:30

    Everyone been talking about trading Smith. Maybe been talking about the wrong Crow…… he surely will come good though.

    gator59 · 28/06/2019 at 21:57

    He's just floating around in his tin can

Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 20:29

Cats just haven't put enough pressure on Crows for Laird to rack up any possessions. Surely swings around. He can belt out a 40 point quarter…I hope.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 21:09

    Not looking too good right now Rick with Smith, Laird and Danger in my side, fingers crossed for the 2nd half.

      Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 22:19

      Laird has come home strong. Danger doing…something.

        Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 22:22

        Oh I forgot, I traded out Smith this week yay!…yeah Danger's battling on even though hurt.

Finnius · 28/06/2019 at 20:42

Naish out means I'm copping doughnut in defence. Will be going ROB down and burgess up to Hurn next week to fill in D6, but naish as an out hurts as he was looking pretty good in the first two rounds, and I only need him to be D6 for a couple of weeks.

Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 21:01

Kelly is a deadset gun. Might just about be my fave player to watch. Such clean hands. Glides about like it's the easiest thing in the world.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 21:16

    He's in a rare group of second year rookies who have really stepped up after a good first year.
    He can pretty much name his price now, but will he want to go back home?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/06/2019 at 08:59

    It funny because they showed vision before the game of some past players one being Andy McLeod.

    Kelly is so McLeod like.
    Beautiful to watch.
    Instinctively good. Make things happen.

KSinny · 28/06/2019 at 21:02

    Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 21:10

    Thankfully everyone owns him. Is it just me or do you you roll your eyes when Danger gets hurt. He doth protest too much at times, me thinks.

      Russty_ · 28/06/2019 at 21:11

      He has been known to yeah, but he did look sore, he does have plenty of padding there these days lol.

        Rick Grimes · 28/06/2019 at 21:12

        That time he ended on crutches then played the next week. Classic Danger. Here's hoping for a miracle recovery.

Both VC josh kelly and C danger absolute let downs, serves me right for not giving Grundy/Gawn the honours

    Steeeve · 28/06/2019 at 22:38

    I brought in J Kelly instead of Sloane this week despite the big price tag. Always expected he would be tagged so was happy with a ton. Sloane has played well but at the end of the day I would rather have Jelly for the finals.

BlueBaggerJosh · 28/06/2019 at 22:38

Keep ROB VC?

hedski · 28/06/2019 at 23:43

I reckon I should lock in Clarkes 63 and Smiths 65 instead of risking Bewley and Answorth yeah?
Makes me wanna spew.
Danger Captain. FFS.

    DavidC · 29/06/2019 at 06:06

    Yep, Answerth has been horrible since his debut and Bewley has been over 60 once. Take the lesser of two evils.

      dontblushbaby · 29/06/2019 at 12:44

JugHead · 29/06/2019 at 07:59

Gunna hurt next week if both Cripps and Danger are out….coverage only stretches so far……

    Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 12:56

    Yeah jughead. I’ve seen some much better starting 22 then my side at present but none have any bench cover. My teams strength is my cover but if no one gets injured, I will drop off quickly. It’s a tough mix to get right.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 13:56

    I'll just move Danger to the mids, where I have good cover.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/06/2019 at 09:07

Wasn't it fitting that they showed vision before the game of past players and one was Andy.Mcleod?

Reminder you of anyone?

Kelly is so much like McLeod it is scary.
He is just distinctively good and makes things happen, knows how to use the sherrin.

A joy to watch.

I hope the WA teams have big cheque books as he is going to demand (and rightly so) a decent chunk of cash and a couple of first round draft picks.

And then there is the hairy cat.
Loves to sniff out and kick a snag.
Covers some ground as well. Another hidden gem discovered later in the draft.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/06/2019 at 09:14

      As long as Hately gets named again next week i'll feel better about it & sloane's still dirt cheap for his output.

        hedski · 29/06/2019 at 11:35

        Sloane in is my only trade this week Mav, happy with his 129.
        Got you in Jungleland draft this week good luck mate

TommyC99 · 29/06/2019 at 10:24

Loop hind or O baker into bewley?

    Derek · 29/06/2019 at 12:46

    I’m stuck on that.

    Have E on Clarke but can go with either Baker or Bewley to beat that

      Derek · 29/06/2019 at 12:47

      Good thing is they play in last 2 games

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:46

    I'd go the punt on Hind hopefully having another good score, Baker's been a bit average last few weeks.

Big G · 29/06/2019 at 11:33

This is one of the hardest year's in memory for rookie cash generation.

    Libba · 29/06/2019 at 12:38

    I felt these years rookies have done fairly well, especially the ones playing towards the start of season

    If you jumped on o'brien, stack and started with walsh, constable, duursma, hore, Miers (have all generated over 200k min )

    Currently Logue and hately (if he strings couple games should generate )

    Derek · 29/06/2019 at 12:44

    You mustn’t have played last year?

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:45

    Doesn't help either that now with our teams finished or almost finished they're getting dropped and or injured with low trades.

    Saritz · 29/06/2019 at 13:00

    I have to disagree. I have found this year to be one of the better years for cash generation.

    Is it just me, or has "late changes" been on the decline also? I am haunted by years gone by with late outs to popular SC players. So Im forever checking the final teams, only to find this year there is nothing to worry about.

RealDealNeale · 29/06/2019 at 11:56

Any tips on who to trade for Logue?

Option 1 – Hore to Logue at D6, pockets cash to upgrade Smith next week
Option 2 – Schultz to Logue. Will only have 60k bank but be able to loop Smith/Logue/Hore between D5-D7

    Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:11

    not sure on your team structure and who you do and don't have but if that smith upgrade is to a lloyd/whitfield it's option 1 for me RDN.

      RealDealNeale · 29/06/2019 at 12:33

      Already have Lloyd and Hurn, so it would be to Whit.

      Other weak points are ROB, B.Crouch and Brayshaw on field, so the money could be helpful

    JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 12:46

    I like option two.

TommyC99 · 29/06/2019 at 12:22

I noticed Grundy only averages 90 against Goldy in his career. Is that enough to scare us off him? Doesn't look like much else on the option front though. Maxy has stef martin, Fyfe could meet a curnow tag, the doggies boys tend to struggle away from home. Captaincy isnt looking as straightforward as first thought

    Libba · 29/06/2019 at 12:35

    Max gawn in recent years has struggled to score well against Brisbane

    I'm also struggling with captaincy after the Dangerfield failed VC

      TommyC99 · 29/06/2019 at 12:40

      Yeah mate its tough. I can make a case against every C option this week

      Grundy – History isnt great against Goldy
      Gawn – Stef Martin while hes dropped off he still isnt conceding huge scores
      Fyfe – Curnow tag?
      Macrae – Great record against Port but been poor interstate this year + could meet a houston tag?
      Oliver – Very up and down
      Ryan/Hurn – Shown big ceiling but is consistency an issue? I was thinking about Hurn but its wet in melbourne today

      Proving to be a tough captain round indeed!

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:37

    Hey Tommy, I think the form Grundy's in at the moment, that past average thing doesn't worry me, he does so much more around the ground, and wins hitouts against most other rucks.
    The 2 scores dragging that average down are from 2013 and 2014 way before he reached gun status.
    Didn't really click it into high gear until 2017

      TommyC99 · 29/06/2019 at 13:00

      Thats a very good point russty. And there arent any other standout captain options around to compete with grundy

JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 12:41

I went against my number one rule and changed my mind on my VC & C choices. Was going with Grundy into Fyfe most of the week, then I thought about having Fyfe as C in the last game of the round if Grundy didn't score 125 or over. So went with Danger into Grundy, just have to hope Grundy gets the job done tonight.

Derek · 29/06/2019 at 12:43

What to do with Hoff?

1) hold him and trade Parker to RGray or JJK and have him at F7 to loop and ruck cover.

2) Hoff to Walters

3) Hoff to Lycett, keeps ruck cover

Thanks fellas

    TBone_9 · 29/06/2019 at 13:04

    Gday Derek, I’m having the same issue as you mate. Liked having him there as ruck cover but seeing as everyone would have Gawn and Grundy by now I don’t think it’s as necessary. I like option 1 if you’ve got the cash gen, otherwise to Walters is good. It’s just a call of whether he will be back in the team next week or if he will be out multiple weeks.

    I’m having seconds thoughts about trading him hoping he will be back next week. I don’t have Macrae and Hore to Macrae is mighty tempting this week.. what do you reckon mate?

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 16:45

    I like Hoff to Lycett or Gray Derek, hope you didn't go with JJK

Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:48

had a spare 5 minutes on my hands and found this interesting. Sorry if it's hard to understand

Summary of my Goldstein -> ROB trade made Round 5:

Goldy priced R5 $532k
ROB Priced R5 $136k

Goldy total pts/AVG since trade: 921/102
ROB total pts/AVG since trade: 883/98
Goldy averaged only 4 points more PPG

Goldy predicted price post R15: $520k
ROB predicted price post R15: $500k
ROBs made $370k on top of the $396k

So just quickly i've lost a 4 pt per game going to ROB but come out a long way in front cashwise.
Also after ROBs 120 last night that actually bumps his average to 100 and can't see goldy going big againt grundy tonight so closes the gap on that average again. I still suspect I'll have to bring in Grundy when the time is right but will be an interesting few weeks ahead especially if nicnat gets fit and starts firing!

Who else made the same or similar move with another ruckman and ROB?

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 12:56

    ROB…trade of the year Mav!..I wish I'd done that move but didn't have the stones, kept Goldy and ROB and ended up trading ROB in for Whitfield the week he got injured..Yay!
    No one could've forseen how good ROB would be and that he'd keep Jacobs out of the side this far into the season, that extra cash has and will allow you get some serious extra talent in your side so well done mate for taking the punt.

      Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 13:05

      I certainly didn't bring him in thinking he'd do what he did russty haha
      I remember thinking he might max out at 400k tops and sauce would be back in 6-8 weeks and will walk back into the crows 22 yet here we are ROBs going to crack 500k a 3 rd average of 135 and has kept sauce out, crazy! I nearly traded him after that 54 but had other issues to attend and since has punched out 104, 181 & 120. Lycett, Witts & Bellchambers will test him over the coming month.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 13:32

    Hi Mav. I started with Lycett at R2, traded Butters to O'Brien in round 5 on the bubble, moved Lycett fwd, O'Brien to R2, all good. My big mistake was trading both out. Lycett to Hayes in round 7 for some cash in the bank and O'brien to Grundy in round 10.

hedski · 29/06/2019 at 13:04

Siciflog named at CHB, let's hope he bloody plays there!!

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 13:45

    Amen to that Hed…he's just a witches hat as a forward.

    Swans2012 · 29/06/2019 at 14:03

    Done the same holt, looking like a good call at the moment

      The Lost Boys · 29/06/2019 at 14:27

      Is Sicily actually playing n the back half? Scoring terribly…
      Wish I had of though to use him as an emergency!

    Swans2012 · 29/06/2019 at 16:34

    I think I’m taking his 80 odd over playing Logue, you?

Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 13:05

Who to Captain?🤔

    Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 13:12

    In the same situation.
    I'm tossing up between fyfe and macrae with it currently on fyfe
    I suspect Neale will cop some extra attention from harmes?

      Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 13:34

      Fyfe is my preferred option right now. I might even take the punt on Marshall.

      JEL · 29/06/2019 at 14:53

      They're the 2 I'm looking at, also with Fyfe atm.
      Maxxy has a poor record against the Lions so I've ruled him out. It means he will probably go big and I'll be kicking myself.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 13:44

    If I had L.Parker, I would be putting the C on him.

    Swans2012 · 29/06/2019 at 14:57

    I’m really surprised people are doubting the two ruckmen….

      Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 15:07

      Yeah me too Swanny, no love for Grundy out there?, he's a no brainer for me.

        Swans2012 · 29/06/2019 at 15:13

        If I had grundy he’d be the man, so it’s gawn for me.
        8 of his last 9 have been over 126 (other one a non disaster 109). Then last five over 144….history scmistory he’s the one for me (if macrae Vc flops)

        Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 15:41

        Last year during his good run there was only 1 average score for him and that was 113 against North. To top it off, Collingwood smashed them. Hence my reluctance to put the c on him.

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 15:55

    Rainy weather at Adelaide Oval tonight apparently…same at Optus on Sunday too.

Rocksta_ · 29/06/2019 at 14:49

WTF is Sicily doing? Is having another mare, but this time in the backline. He’s killing me

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 15:39

    Starting to get amongst it now Rocksta, now the rain's'd be pretty slippery out there still though.
    Ton for Sic in the last, wooo!! :)..or maybe 83 lol

Rocksta_ · 29/06/2019 at 14:52

Yea, agreed Holty. May be too cold for him?

Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 14:57

34 at half time…could still get to 90+ maybe!…hopefully

    Rocksta_ · 29/06/2019 at 15:01

    The runner must have told him about our posts cause he picked up a bit almost immediately after we made them.

Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 14:59

Yeah stop hating on him boys
I’m happy just to cop a 70 from him at this stage considering his recent antics

Defying_Madness · 29/06/2019 at 15:00

Didn't look that way to me, ball just wasn't coming anywhere near him

KSinny · 29/06/2019 at 15:34

Good on ya Gaff! Really lifted after half time!!

    KSinny · 29/06/2019 at 16:31

    And then he gets 7 points from halfway through the 3rd….

      KSinny · 29/06/2019 at 16:39

      Make that 1 point!!!

    Swans2012 · 29/06/2019 at 16:32

    Add yeo to that, dunno how he scratched a 90 out but happy he did!

Defying_Madness · 29/06/2019 at 15:44


COREYSC · 29/06/2019 at 16:42

Grundy, Macrae or Fyfe? As Skipper

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 16:50

    Have you checked the weather reports for the 2 grounds without a roof?…that might help you make up your mind mate.

      COREYSC · 29/06/2019 at 19:29

      Yeah I’ve gone with Fyfe this week I think he’s the most likely to beat his projected!

        Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 19:44

        Fair enough mate I reckon the guy playing in dry conditions is a better chance of scoring over a wet weather game. Good luck.

          COREYSC · 29/06/2019 at 20:50

          Yeah and I just reckon guys coming off a bad score often bounce back and go large!

    Jace · 29/06/2019 at 17:04

    Wet and windy in Adelaide.

Pranav · 29/06/2019 at 16:46

is young to logue a wasted trade? im definitely bringing in logue this week but the plan was to take answerth out. my bench looks incredibly thin with burgess and gardner in the back and bines young in the forward line. is it worth spending a small amount of cash to get rid of young and beefen up the bench a little? ill have 11 trades left and 175k in the bank after this move with 3 more premiums to fill out

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 17:28

    I'd still be tempted to punt Answerth Pranav cause his days are probably numbered anyway, and you end up with more money for your future trades.

      Pranav · 29/06/2019 at 18:43

      Yeah this is probably the right move to make. I also have Hore who has definitely maxed out in price but might have to hold him this week cause I don’t really want to be playing answerth on field

JEL · 29/06/2019 at 17:35

Lloyd & Heeney bookending my team, what can go wrong 🙁

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 18:53

    Heeney going ok but Lloyd's been completely shut down by Scheer apparently.

      JEL · 29/06/2019 at 20:55

      Yep, looks like Heeney pulled one out of the bag in the 2nd half.
      Might need to show Lloyd a picture of what a football looks like, doesn't appear to have seen one today.

TBone_9 · 29/06/2019 at 17:44

If JPK can keep this up he could be a sub 500k premo in a couple weeks time and pretty decent POD. For anyone else who might be looking for a cheap premo option

Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 17:46

That’s ridiculous 😂

Jace · 29/06/2019 at 17:53

And it was windy and wet too!!!

Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 18:01

I would love to see nicnat get fit and healthy and have a big pre season running into next year
Could challenge Grundy and Gawn for the sc throne
100 pts for 58% TOG

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 18:42

    Yeah Sam, the game's better for Nicnat being back, weagles would be stoked too they don't have to rely solely on Hickey and Vardy anymore.

Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 18:22

probably only fair we have a crack at Lloyd now since most were giving it to Sicily earlier today.

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 18:28

    Think he's getting tagged today Holty, probably still tons up in the last knowing him.

      Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 19:23

      Nope stunk it up typical of my team this round

Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 18:42

Who were they playing…the local under 15's?…;)

    Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 18:45

    Last years premiers.

Derek · 29/06/2019 at 19:19

Rocky went last week and just traded out Hoff today

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 19:57

    Who'd you end up going for Derek?

      Derek · 29/06/2019 at 21:05

      Went with Lycett.

      Always keen on him but only if he was the #1 ruck

      He’s a POD and gives the ruck cover

        Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:12

        Nice mate…hope it works out, he's travelling ok so far this game.
        Pretty good considering the weather there.

TommyC99 · 29/06/2019 at 19:23

Lloyd's gonna be nice and cheap in a couple of weeks. Easy swap from ROB – Lloyd!

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 19:33

    Could trade a hore to a Seagull lol

    Blue · 29/06/2019 at 19:57

    good timing.
    welcome my side in a couple of weeks

Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 19:23

Come on Grundy Baby!…another big one tonight big fella!

Bobby · 29/06/2019 at 19:27

Dunkley or Macrae Captain?

    gator59 · 29/06/2019 at 20:13

    The Bont

BlueBaggerJosh · 29/06/2019 at 19:43

Fark Macrae is copping Houston, tried to changed the C 30 seconds before the bounce and it said it’s locked…. brilliant

    COREYSC · 29/06/2019 at 20:52

    57 at half time, he can launch from here break the tag hope is not lost

Holty01 · 29/06/2019 at 19:47

well after thinking all day about the C and decided on Grundy. But 5min before the bounce changed my mind🤦🏼‍♂️

    Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 19:59

    Atleast you didn’t have danger holty! Happy that treloar and bont are going nuts in the first quarter
    Also Grundy is a Unique player for me this week in a real close one looks like he will get me over the line

JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 20:02

To think I was 2k short for getting in Bont this week and now he's going to be even further from my reach. Plus nearly all my opponents this weekend have him, so not looking very good for me.

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 20:14

    Bad luck mate…that sucks, I knew there was a reason I chose him over Macrae, just haven't seen the reason until tonight, hope he scores 200!

      JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 20:19

      I can't see him scoring under 180 at the moment, so he will give it a shake.

        Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 20:23

        Don't think this driving rain will help much with the scores though John.

          JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2019 at 21:30

          You were right about the rain Russty.

            Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:44

            Yeah so much for 180…Bont will be lucky to get to 130 the way he's gone since half time. Hope I'm wrong.

Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:12

North are all over collingwood in the first 3 quarters.
Since shaw has taken over we look a far better side look to play with alot more freedom and ziebs back as a fulltime midfielder.
It baffles me why we aren't atleast considering locking in Rhyce Shaw instead of paying huge figures for longmire.

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:21

    Agree Mav, I think they should give him a decent chance to prove himself for the rest of the season, and then at the end of the season, if they decide he hasn't done enough, then think about replacing him.

      Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:33

      100% Russty. We've had several good wins under him already and playing some nice footbal hel has to be seriously considered.
      Rhyce has an impressive resume also it's not like his some part timer that has no idea.

        Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:42

        If he can knock off a potential top 4 side by 30 points or more, he should be given a decent chance, that's something the fans should be able to decide, rather than a closed board room full of rich fat fks.

AuroraBorealis?! · 29/06/2019 at 21:22

Pies to miss the top 4, we're getting figured out by opposition teams now, been absolutely dreadful tonight

    Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:49

    Playing a very very good opposition tonight though AB 😉 haha
    But in all seriousness you blokes have looked flat all night and north have been relentless tonight hit you blokes hard at every opportunity. I hope we lock in Rhyce Shaw he deserves the job

Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:24

Is anyone else experiencing lagging and freezing since the new format came in a few days ago?….I have and it's really annoying.
Feels like 1998 Internet speed or something stuffed up like that, wonder if it's because of all the new Twitter stuff etc added to the site?

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:46

    Guess not then?….feels like when the Internet was first invented…in 1995, when everything lagged, all the time.

      Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:52

      I can't say i've experienced any lag..
      maybe close down your brazzers page in the background might be slowing things down? haha

        Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 21:55

        Seems like the only way it works at a decent speed Mav is if I close down all my other pages, otherwise it sucks, and I have 45 mbs NBN

    Lekdog · 30/06/2019 at 13:45

    Try clearing your cache on the site

      Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:04

      Ok cheers Lek dawg, seems to be only happening sometimes.

Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:01

I guess I'm pretty glad I brought Lycett in 2 weeks ago for Westhoff, he's turned out ok..very good actually, sometimes ya just gotta cut the dead wood loose.

    Derek · 29/06/2019 at 22:16

    I did it this week. We’ll see how long he stays as sole ruck

      Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:35

      Gotta stick with him now Derek, unless you have a bunch of trades in reserve…good call in the end, wherever you got your tips from.

    Maverick_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:17

    Great move russty as long as Ryder stays out you should be right.

      Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:37

      I have faith Mav, there has to be a changing of the guard sometime…and I think it could be now.

Derek · 29/06/2019 at 22:18

The Bont just stopped after quarter time. What happened?

    Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 22:31

    got Some attention I think always the way with bont, will tear it if you leave him to it

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:39

    Yeah what a shame…what might have been?…still happy with his score though.

Dash · 29/06/2019 at 22:28

Gawn or Neale captain? Thoughts

    Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 22:33

    I’d go gawny, I doubted Grundy based of past stats and I was wrong id just back gawny into tear it

Sam_01 · 29/06/2019 at 22:36

How we tracking community 17 for 1901 Neale/Gawn/Fyfe/Logue/ and baker or bewley to go
Captain danger has cost me a real nice score still hoping to hit 2400

    Russty_ · 29/06/2019 at 22:44

    1631 with 8 to play this week Sam, hoping for a solid score this week.

silversovereign · 29/06/2019 at 22:42

Believe or not but I’ve still got rocky. Hopefully it’s been worth the wait given all the trouble he’s been.

The Lost Boys · 30/06/2019 at 05:50

Do we stick with Grundy's 133 or go with Gawn as Captain? In a close league match, with both of us having Gawn as captain – though my opponent had Kelly as VC so pretty sure he will stick with Gawn!

I'm up by 100 points exactly, with Marshall and Bewley to go as uniques vs Stack, Hind and Houli. So deciding between Gawn and Grundy will probably decide the match…

Should I play it safe and stick with Grundy, or rely on the unique players and take Gawn out of the equation by keeping him as Captain?

    The Bont · 30/06/2019 at 09:06

    My advice would be to take Grundy's score.
    No other ruckman in the comp has scored more than 100 against S.Martin (and that was Grundys 100). If Gawn does monster Martin which will be very difficult at the Gabba, he may only get 10 more points so I suggest playing it safe

      The Lost Boys · 30/06/2019 at 16:09

      Thanks for the advice and very glad I took it! Looking great right now – Gawn on 9 points almost 10 minutes into the second. While my opponent ended up changing Captain to Fyfe, I think Marshall going bonkers with 161 should keep me on top 🙂

Sammy B · 30/06/2019 at 07:13

Logue or Hore on the ground, at present I have Logue on the ground as my opponent also has Logue to counter ACT his score but it will be a close game so should I go with Hore. People's thoughts would be much appreciated.

    The Bont · 30/06/2019 at 09:07

    Logue is the better option but if your going to lose then put hore on the field to have that difference

Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 10:21

I have Moore on the bench and can’t get his score. I blame Clarko. Put the e on Sicily after the last few weeks. Scores 80 so had to swing Moore forward with Gardner to get his score. This meant I had to field Duursma which I honestly didn’t think was going to hurt to much.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:09

    Yeah bloody Duursma Holty!…I wanted to field Hind but thought, no Duursma's pretty reliable, wrong!
    Bad luck with Moore there mate, he would have to ton up this week.

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2019 at 10:22

I have a confession to make community. Yes I did it, and call me mad for doing so, but Patrick Cripps no longer plays in the Tophawks team.

All I hear is crickets! LOL

I did not take this decision lightly, but my gut tells me that Cripps' foot injury is worse than what they are saying and could miss more games.I could be wrong of course…… But what finally triggered the move was the fact I did not have Jackson Macrae. His low BE of 53 means that another big score would put him out of reach of coaches who dont have him. I was one of those coaches. So I bit the bullet……

OUT-Patrick Cripps IN- Jackson Macrae. BANG!!!

The I sat back with a bourbon and watched Macrae smash out a 142 against Port last night. Macrae is now worth north of $630K and Tophawk is smiling like a Cheshire cat this morning as he proudly looks at his new recruit. Good boy Jack!!! You made TH very very happy last night.

    Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 11:15

    Nice move Hawk. If he is out for a few more weeks it’s a brilliant move mate. I guess all we can hope for is Carlton coming out and being honest about the injury.

    Lekdog · 30/06/2019 at 13:45

    Do I have to ban you now?

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:00

    Hey TH, big call but you know what's right for your team, Mac's score would've lessened the pain and that they're both mega-guns.
    Time will tell I guess whether it was the right move or not but getting Macrae in is never a bad move.
    I'm hoping Crippsy is back next week as I can't really afford to trade him out…too damn low.
    Cheers mate.

hedski · 30/06/2019 at 12:53

Hore, Walsh and Neale(cap) vs Fyfe + 270 points.
Who wins??

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:06

    Hey Hed, I think it leans towards the Fyfe + 270 one, Walsh and Hore would almost have to ton up..could be a stretch.

    Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 14:10


    hedski · 30/06/2019 at 14:36

    I'm hoping Harmes goes to Neale, I'm the one with Fyfe obviously. 👍

      Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:54

      Reckon you got it in the bag mate unless Walsh does a ton and Hore get's back to his best, Neale will probably cop the Harmes tag.

        hedski · 30/06/2019 at 15:10

        Ah crap just realised he has the E on Stack and can swap Cripps on for Walsh if he needs to….
        I think he's dropping in for a beer to watch melb/bris game so I will have to distract/misinform him if possible!!!
        Underhanded but necessary.

          Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 15:12

          Maybe put some powdered sleeping pills in his first beer mate?…LOL

            hedski · 30/06/2019 at 17:31

            He took Stack, need 170+ from Fyfe now.

              Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:18

              Looking good mate haha

Rick Grimes · 30/06/2019 at 13:40

Jaydyn Short will be $350k in a week or two. Very cheap for a guy who should average 90.

Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:03

Jeez I wish I'd fielded Hind over Duursma now, Hind is looking like turning into a gun player and backing up his nice score from last week.

    Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 14:10

    I know the feeling mate. Have Duursma onfield instead of Moore. It happens I guess.

      Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 15:09

      Hind's gona backwards now…only on 48 at 3/4 time…Marshall is a GUN!

Connor · 30/06/2019 at 14:09

Didn't realise saints started at 1:10… hadn't finalised my Stocker >> Hind trade :((

Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 14:16

Bummer mate, I was thinking about doing the same thing with Lycett with the C, didn't have the goolies, looks like Marshall might be going big today too.
True there about the last minute calls, I think ya have to make an early call and stick with it.

cash_cows · 30/06/2019 at 14:25

Neale, fyfe or gawn for captain? Tight h2h. They going Neale for now.

No idea · 30/06/2019 at 14:55

Thoughts community- Fyfe or Gawn for Captain today. In a really tight match and that decision will probably determine the match

Dash · 30/06/2019 at 15:01

Neale or Gawn Captain. Which ever one I go, the other will score more. Always happens to me 🙂

    No idea · 30/06/2019 at 15:04

    I reckon Gawn over the recent form of Neale

    JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 15:58

    Neale to bounce back.

    Dash · 30/06/2019 at 17:51

    And I went Gawn 🙂 haha, Tops off my Supercoach year!

KSinny · 30/06/2019 at 15:03

Trading in Houli 3 weeks ago is my biggest regret.

    No idea · 30/06/2019 at 15:12

    I hear ya. Made the same mistake, thinking I was bringing in a premium. Not sure what the hell has happened to him since

      KSinny · 30/06/2019 at 15:21

      I think it might be Short back in the team

No idea · 30/06/2019 at 15:19

So glad I traded Lloyd in for Wilke this week!!

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 15:27

    Yeah I traded out Goldy for Grundy this week but it'll work out in the long run mate, as will your trade.

      No idea · 30/06/2019 at 15:39

      Can't go wrong with Grundy long term. Mind you, I've been running with Gawn/O'Brien, with the plan being to upgrade of course ROB to Grundy eventually. Though with ROB's resurgent last few weeks and sudden burst of cash generation I might have to keep putting that off for a bit longer (although Lycett might sort his out next week)

JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 15:21

I went against my rule of picking a VC & C early and sticking to it. Had Grundy into Fyfe most of the week, then changed to Danger into Grundy. Luckily Grundy was able to score over my 125 cut off, so no difference in the end, but I learnt my lesson.

JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 15:39

Not having Marshall is killing my team, seven of my nine opponents have him. I've come to the realization that my team isn't going to be good enough going forward, since I have no trades left for upgrades, only emergencies. So even though I'm in the top eight in six of my nine leagues, I don't think that will be the case in four weeks time.

TommyC99 · 30/06/2019 at 15:55

Take hind’s 58 or back in bewley?

    JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 16:09

    65 is usually my cut off score for rookies, but I'm thinking of moving that down to 55 after the way some have been scoring lately.

SC_Donkey · 30/06/2019 at 15:59

Team travelling ok last night….. comes bloody Sunday, team went from ordinary to syet!!!

I give up!!!

Good luck to ya lot.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 16:38

    Gawn back in the 3rd so maybe not a total disaster, not sure what syet means.
    Can't give up, your league mates won't appreciate that… keep going.

hedski · 30/06/2019 at 16:07

Oh no, Gawn down, twisted ankle

    Lazza · 30/06/2019 at 16:21

    There goes my week .. Capt Gawn scores 10..,

    NoLanguage96 · 30/06/2019 at 16:23

    FFS that's me done

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 16:34

    Maybe he can still salvage a half decent score in the next half?..kudos to him for getting back out there.
    This kinda shit happens every week this time of year lol, wish I still had 10 trades left.

    Dan · 30/06/2019 at 17:29

    I don’t like the sound of a big guy with a twisted ankle. I wonder how long it will take to recover from that?

The Lost Boys · 30/06/2019 at 16:12

Is Gawn injured or just having a shocker???

    Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 16:13

    was having a shocker but just rolled his ankle in the 2nd. Hasn’t come out of the room as yet

      No idea · 30/06/2019 at 16:22

      Sorry, my fault. I just switched the C from Fyfe to Gawn at the last minute to match my HTH opponent

        The Lost Boys · 30/06/2019 at 16:27

        Well glad I changed my C from Gawn and kept Grundy's score – also glad I still have ROB as might need him for next week!

          No idea · 30/06/2019 at 16:29

          Gawn back on the ground; albeit up forward

Derek · 30/06/2019 at 16:41

Could have been worse. I had Neale as C and changed to Gawn just before bounce

Maverick_ · 30/06/2019 at 16:54

Went from Fyfe to Gawn as the ball was about to be bounced.. hmmm how cruel can SC be!!
I'll take a ton as C from here but i got a feeling stef will monster an injury affected gawn now

    Maverick_ · 30/06/2019 at 17:52

    Fyfe 70 at QT, ouch!!

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:17

    Bummer Mav…Fyfe's going nutty with the scoring, could go massive.

      Maverick_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:21

      yep! it was the weather that put me off going Fyfe wasn't sure how he'd go in the wet weather i will never doubt him again.
      But i'll still take a 90 from gawn

TelescopicCox · 30/06/2019 at 18:09

Marshall has to almost be pick of the season. Absolutely on fire at the moment. Congrats to those on him early

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:15

    I got him for 440 TC, but could've got him for 340….it's not just at the moment either, he's Saints number 1 ruck now and will be for many years to come.

      JEL · 30/06/2019 at 18:19

      Got him in last week, better late than never.

      Maverick_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:25

      Wonder why saints are interested in draper from essendon and willing to give him a great contract also
      just an insurance incase marshall goes down maybe? clearly going to be a gun for years to come

        Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:40

        I think it's because Pierce seems to have ongoing concussion issues Mav, maybe permanent, and Longer is a bit of a spud, could be hoping for a dual Ruck attack in the future or at least a viable backup…maybe they've learned their lesson from letting McEvoy go with no good options looking fwd.
        Doesn't hurt to plan ahead for a change.

        Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 19:11

        Kent is worth about 12 cents Neil.

    KSinny · 30/06/2019 at 18:41

    Got him for 433k obviously very happy with him, unlike Houli who I got 3 weeks ago for 541k…

Derek · 30/06/2019 at 18:27

Ouch. Not having Fyfe is hurting. 10/10 of my opponents have him and 6 have him as their C. I of course had C on Gawn.

Looked likely to win most matches, now all will be lost.

    Dash · 30/06/2019 at 18:39

    I feel your pain. My oppo went Fyfe C and I needed to take a punt to hope Gawn went crazy. Backfired big time. Ouch

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 18:47

    Bad luck lads, always next week to bounce back…just rotten luck this week.

    hedski · 30/06/2019 at 18:47

    You will still beat me Derek just checked.

JugHead · 30/06/2019 at 19:08

Vale Kade Simpson. You held my backline together for years. Even the best get caught by father time eventually.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 19:10

    I tried to tell that to some people before the season started but got attacked for it, everyone reaches their use by date, even champions of the past.

      Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:08

      Hard to know these things mate, it's like trying to predict the future.

KSinny · 30/06/2019 at 20:02

2221 for me this week…… I'm guessing that's well below par. How'd everyone else fair?

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:09

    No idea what par could be this week mate…so many variables came into play this week. Seems like a decent score.

    JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 20:15

    2253 for me, the fact I only won 3/9 league games says we are way under par for the week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2019 at 20:16

    Ended up with 2301. Will take that after all the dramas today.

      Sam_01 · 30/06/2019 at 20:20

      2357 not to bad considering Gawn injury Cripps on the pine and stinkerfield as my captain
      Was tossing up him or mcrae cost me a 2400

        Ned_Starkers · 30/06/2019 at 20:25

        2351 for me.

    silversovereign · 30/06/2019 at 21:32

    2205, some great scores and some very ordinary on s, including Gawn and Bewley (who had to field for Cripps)

Holty01 · 30/06/2019 at 20:10

Well done Russty. You well and truely smashed me this week. 👍

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:16

    Thanks the Holt…I smashed everyone this week as it turns out, could be my highlight of the season?…lol…hope your rank didn't slip too much….some weeks just don't go your way, it's the bouncing back that matters the most…through having a solid team.
    Keep on trucking mate.

      JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 20:50

      You certainly smashed me Russty, I moved down four places in The Rat Pack after that pasting, hanging on for dear life in 8th spot. At least I had a win in the JR Mega League to clime out from the bottom two.

        Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:57

        Sorry bud, I don't like beating my friends, but sometimes it has to happen, I just got lucky this week…I still have some seriously questionable choices in my side…yeah Mega league is one I'll be happy to make the bottom 8 and contend in the loser final hahah, it's been a struggle this year to get further north than that, a testament to the talent in the league there.

          JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 21:55

          Yes a really tough league the JR Mega, I've been in the bottom four from the start, it's the only league that I haven't been competitive in. You having Lycett and Marshall should see you climbing up the ladders and ranking if they keep going like they are.Trading out Lycett in round seven would have to be my biggest blunder of the year, just in front of trading O'Brien out in round ten. I'm really going to have to think a bit longer about my trades next year, I've made at least six terrible decisions this season.

SidVicious · 30/06/2019 at 20:13

Ed Curnow was mugged and robbed by Champion Data.
32 disposals, 20 contested possessions, 16 Clearances, and 5 tackles for a measly 113SC.
Fyfe on the other hand was given points for wiping his nose and dropping marks he had 3 less disposals, 5 less contested possessions, 10 less clearances and 2 more tackles. Apparently those tackles were worth 15 points each!
PS. Hate the new layout, 5-years ago isn't retro

    dontblushbaby · 30/06/2019 at 20:33

    Half way through the last 1/4 Fyfe was on 150 and got scaled back because Carlton were winning, as for the scoring Fyfe had 8 marks ,7 tackles and 1 Clangers @ 69% Efficiency. where as Curnow had 3 Marks, 4 Tackles and 5 Clangers @ 62% Efficiency , the score involvement is also a big component that goes unnoticed , just my take Sid

      SidViscious · 30/06/2019 at 22:02

      Seriously DBB? You reckon that 4marks and 3 tackles in a losing team has greater value than 10 clearances and 7 kicks, NFW.
      Fyfe got scaled back because CD had already awarded 3300 points for the game with 15 minutes to go. The reason that they ran out of points is because in the first half Fyfe was getting them for having a heartbeat. 104 at half time for 13 disposals 3 marks and 2 tackles is a joke
      It seems that if Fyfe/Macrae/Neale/Cripps/Oliver get clearances and contested possessions they have value but when other players get them they don't score at all.

Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:13

Great win for your Blues Holternator, gives some nice hope for the future mate.

Hodgey · 30/06/2019 at 20:14

7 players going 120+, 4 of them 140+. Didn't manage to put VC/C on a single one of them.

Still managed 2241 with the C on Gawn but oh man, what could have been…

Iamme · 30/06/2019 at 20:14

2245 If Gawny my Captain didn't go down 2,400 was well and truly on the cards

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2019 at 20:17

That was a Docker shocker for the ages. Mate, they are running around with pitch forks here. LOL

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:32

    Glad I'm down south mate and don't have to deal with the lynch mob lol

      TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2019 at 20:41

      LOL Great score too this week Russty. You are up and about. You are out Donnybrook way? Been there many times either for work or leisure. Great spot. Plenty of apples down there! Just ask Eddie Betts! "How do you like them apples!" LOL Carlton did well today. Cheers mate.

        Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 20:49

        Thanks Hawk, gotta have one good week per year haha, I'm further south and west than that, don't want to say exactly in case Nice Person wants to come and kill me lol….there's some big ole waves around these here parts though 🙂

TOPHAWK1 · 30/06/2019 at 20:25

Great win by the blues! There are angry mobs running around Perth after that Freo shocker. What a battle in GNR and A graders we had! She went down to the wire. In the end you came up trumps by 21. Well played and well deserved mate. Until we meet again! Cheers. TH

hedski · 30/06/2019 at 20:30

A terrible Danger led 2161 here.
Well done Ranger, Rick and Russty 2400+
Best I seen in leagues was 2500+ from the Mighty Crows.
Disappointing week really, missed Cripps like everyone, but otherwise no excuses.

I'm taking my lads out the back for a spray and a whooping to get them ready for next round.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 21:00

    Cheers Hed, was my best week of the year by far, hopefully move up a few places…it's a crapshoot really as to how it goes from here week to week….for all of us.

    The Ranger · 30/06/2019 at 23:46

    Cheers Hedski, havin an ordinary year so it's nice to get a good one every now and then.
    Aiming to be annoying in Finals whether they be minor or major.

Maverick_ · 30/06/2019 at 21:02

2305 with the big C on gawn 🙁 i think that'll be about par this week i won 9/10 leagues but got lucky saw some scores alot higher than that around. How'e everyone else go this weeek?
lets hope crippa and gawn both get up for round 16 and rocky too for those who own him.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 21:38

    That's pretty amazing since you had the C on Gawn this week Mav…I'd hate to see your score if you had the C on Fyfe, Lycett or Grundy, Macrae…well done mate, that's very solid considering.

    JohnDJ59 · 30/06/2019 at 22:02

    That's a great score Mav, considering you had Gawn as C, nothing worse than when your captain gets injured during a game. I thought my 2253 was way below par, but I actually moved up 905 places to 14,160 rank, considering my team is on life support, I'll take that.

Lazza · 30/06/2019 at 21:19

Well that’s it .. I’m done with SC .. signing out .. till Friday ..

    Lazza · 01/07/2019 at 12:32

    Yep, well done NDD … Gotta agree with DavidC … what was I doing putting the C on Gawn … arrrgghh.

Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 22:16

Just wanted to bring this to the attention of people from quite a nasty Pasty, this is a post from 2 weeks ago, from Nice Person.. and he was trying to publicly humiliate me for his own amusement…from Supercoach Panic room round 13
Well, here's your answer NP…

Nice_Person67p · 2 weeks ago

"Gotta feel for blokes like Russty who invest so much time into this year in year out. I've had an absolute stinker of a year and I'm still 8k higher than him:"…….

As of this week I'm ranked 6452.
And he's ranked 9172.
Normally, I wouldn't call attention to this kind of thing but he called attention to it 2 weeks ago when I was ranked 8K behind him…he was trying to dis-credit and humiliate me in front of a public forum..even though I couldn't care that much about rank.

Seems pretty immature to go after someone this way when you can't even back up your own claims as to how good you think you are, I've made up 11,000 places up on you in 2 weeks.
If I'm so bad at Supercoach, how do you account for that Nice Person?
Maybe you should stay in your hole and only venture out when you have something positive to say…the world is bad enough without people always taking a negative point of view, making it worse…try and change, it might make your life better.

    Russty_ · 30/06/2019 at 22:45

    Yeah that's all I wanted to say mate, not looking to pick a fight…let the figures tell the story in the end, I enjoy playing against my mates, and none of them are anything like that flog, hope he stays in his hole where he belongs.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/06/2019 at 22:59

    remember the fire rust 🙂

Whitey · 30/06/2019 at 22:25

Anyone know when Reiwolt is back for the Tigers? Just wondering if Chol or Soldo makes way for him. Suppose it will be Chol, he is the better forward thanSoldo but not as good in the ruck.

    From today's game Whitey, I think it's around 2 weeks before Jack gets back.

Geez been big having marshall and lycett last two weeks
sadly I don't have either as watch them punch out massive scores recently
but as always you take the good with the bad and accept the Lloyds, sicilys, gawns etc have a down week

could be worse but
in one of my draft leagues I have
sincliar, reid and Curnow – how is that for a hat trick NZ?

could really be in the crapper if cripps, danger and gawn all miss next week…

    The good news is you won't be the only one in the crapper. Not by a long way.
    Its actually tempting to trade Gawn out (what am I saying????), grab one of the cheaper in-form ruckmen and use the cash elsewhere….

Starting to pump out some big scores. 2462 this week, 12 trades left. Going to be hard to stop in my leagues. Mummy to NicNat this week as my SHARK MOVE.

Found myself cheering the blues home. Great win. Well done Daisy and then Murphy.

Don't understand people putting the C on Gawn. His history against Stef was poor and he was struggling before he got injured. I guess we'll never really know how he would have finished the game if he wasn't injured but it was a big risk to put the C on him.

    Agree, my original picks were Grundy into Fyfe, but changed to Danger into Grundy. Missed out on Fyfe in theory, but I would have taken the 133 from Grundy if I'd had him as my VC. Gawn was never in my thoughts due to his history against Stef Martin.
