I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Keep those trades handy! We got our guns back in round 17 but it was still a week of ‘what if’. James Sicily proceeded to massively shit the bed after being a popular trade in target and Stephen Coniglio didn’t trouble to scorers before his knee went ping.

As the season winds down it’s inevitable that the SuperCoach tragics among us (read: all of us) begin to look ahead to 2020 and speculate what the statistical overlords at Champion Data will throw us when it comes to those all important DPP’s. We were #blessed this year with a bunch of FWD/MID’s, you’ve probably got 4 or 5 in your forward line right now. Looking at the top 10 forwards on average, we’ll probably have exactly zero of these guys available as DPP’s. Next year should be fun then!      

A quick shoutout to community member Samvir, coach of TheSCMessiah. With six weeks to go he’s leading the pack in the JR Community League and ranked 52nd overall. Speaking of rankings, Patch and Lek grabbed a Tom Browne-esque EXCLUSIVE this week in the podcast by interviewing Alex, both the number 1 ranked SuperCoach in the land and ripping good bloke. Barron put Collingwood, Essendon, and Freo under his microscope in the hunt for possible 2020 bargains. Damo got all in, on, and around our captain choices for the week, and the ever brilliant and gorgeous Statty returned with another cheat sheet

The News

Injury carnage for the Bombers tonight with Hurley, Zac Clarke, and Orazio all nursing various ailments. This has led to a debut for tackling machine Will Snelling (MID – 117.3k). Dyson Heppell is also back into the side. Tom Lynch replaces Tyson Stengle at the Crows.

Port Adelaide are also feeling the injury pinch. Wines, Ebert, and Burton are all forced changes for the Power. Duursma is back in. Richmond are replacing Derek Eggmolesse Smith and Kam McIntosh with Graham and Baker. Hugh Goddard unfortunately picked up an injury in his return to AFL footy for the Blues, he’s being replaced by Jacob Weitering. The Suns have added four new names. I can’t imagine anyone has Suns in their side right now. Jake Stein (DEF – 123.9k) returns and will play his second games at the Giants. Jeremy Howe and Taylor Adams’ return for the Pies has been offset by injuries to Darcy Moore, Jamie Elliot, and Levi Greenwood. The bombshell of the evening was Nat Fyfe is OUT as Freo host Sydney on Saturday night with an infection in his troublesome elbow. Griffin Logue and Brett Bewley come back into the side. Hayden McLean (FWD – 102.4k) will debut for the Swans. Ryley Stoddart (FWD – 136.8k) will make his season debut for Sydney. Some big ins for Brisbane with Luke Hodge, Hipwood, and McCluggage returning to the side. Sam Durdin joins Mason Wood and Shaun Higgins as the ins for North. Paul Ahern has again been dropped.   

On Sunday, Brandan Parfitt is the only confirmed out for Geelong v Hawthorn. Jack Gunston has been named for the Hawks and there’s a possible club debut for Darren Minchington (MID – 190.9k). Melbourne also haven’t any confirmed outs, the Wagner bros have been added to the squad alongside Oskar Baker and Tim Smith. Three possible debuts at the Eagles; Francis Watson (DEF – 123.9k), Bailey Williams (RUC/FWD – 117.3k), and Matthew Allen (FWD/MID – 123.9k) are all on the extended bench. Jack Petruccelle is back in favour with Jamie Cripps’ injury. Nic Nat is another to miss with injury. In the final game of the week, St Kilda have confirmed a debut for Doulton Langlands (MID/FWD – 123.9k). Matt Parker could also come back into the side. Rhylee West (MID – 117.3k) has again been named for the Dogs, who look like regaining Caleb Daniel and Tom Liberatore. Dale Morris is also in the squad.   

The House of Evil

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

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

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Stephen Coniglio is the latest midfield premium to pick up a season ending injury and needs to be replaced. With only a few weeks to go breakevens can get stuffed, so just swap him to whatever top line mid you’re missing. However, if you’re looking to safe a bit of cash there’s a few standout options around the 500k mark:

Tim Taranto (512.1k) – With Coniglio joining Josh Kelly on the sidelines, Taranto will pick up a lot of the slack. 10x 100+ scores so far this year (8x 110+)

Mitch Duncan (502.2k) – Hasn’t got the accolades this year as they’ve gone to Danger and Tim Kelly. A lean patch recently has seen his price plummet, but 9 tons in his first 11 games and an easy run home makes him a pretty safe option

Zac Merrett (497.1k) – Is absurdly cheap. 10 tons for the year (5 over 120) and only two scores under 85. Plays Gold Coast next week where that huge ceiling will get a work out.

Statty gives some more great options this week in his cheat sheet.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

RUC

Brisbane are the 16th stingiest side in the comp for opposition rucks and North are about middle of the pack. Stef Martin (12.7k) has averaged 105 over the past month compared to Goldy’s (12.2k) 88, making him the obvious pick. 

Oscar McInerney (7.6k) smashed out 83DS last time these two sides met in round 2 on the back of six marks and two goals. Last week North gave up nine marks and two goals to Mitch Brown and seven marks and six goals to Josh Bruce the week before.

DEF

Over the past two months North have conceded only one score under 90 to the opposition number 1 back. Daniel Rich (12.1k) is in play but priced a bit too high for my tastes as his ceiling is limited. Alex Witherden (10.7k) has largely disappointed this year but is the kind of player that can take advantage of North in this area. Luke Hodge (9.2k) hasn’t hit three figures this year but could do very well in this matchup. Noah Answerth (MID – 7.5k) also benefits from this.

Brisbane have also given up an average of 115DS in the past 3 weeks. Robbie Tarrant (9.3k) has pulled down 30 marks in three weeks is probably the pick of the bunch. Jamie Macmillan (10.5k) returned last week after 5 weeks out with a calf. Coaches will look at his last 3 scores and look elsewhere, you might be able to nab him at low ownership.  

FWD

Nothing under 10k really excites me here. Eric Hipwood (8.2k) returns after a week off and is in play for the same reason as McInerney. Lincoln McCarthy’s (10.7k) price hasn’t caught up to his recent form yet. Tippa kicked 4 on the Roos the last week and the Roos have had their problems with small forwards this year. Charlie Cameron (9.8k) is another option for the same reasons. Jy Simpkin (10.7k) and Cam Zurhaar (10k) are priced similarly. Simpkin has excelled in a midfield role but I prefer Zurhaar with Higgins back this week.

MID

If there was ever a slate to load up in the midfield it’s this one. North Melbourne are second and Brisbane are third for conceding points to the oppositions top 1 midfielder, North are also second in conceding to the top 3 (Brisbane are 8th). This is even more pronounced over the past 5 weeks, with both sides in the top 3 for both top 1 and top 3 points conceded to midfielders. Zorko (15.5k), Lyons (14.5k), and Neale (14.4k) all have massive ceilings that can win you a single game slate if they go off. Jack Ziebell (MID – 14.5k) was off last week but has shown a 140+ ceiling on two occasions this year.

Hey guys,

so i have 5 trades left, but just under 100k in the bank. I was gonna double down this week so i can make my final upgrade the following week but the second downgrade would be trading Bewley/Hind, but both are playing. Would you trade Baker and Hind this week or would you just trade Baker and hope theres a downgrade in the next week or 2?

    COREYSC · 19/07/2019 at 11:03

    Depends how your travelling for having 22 this week but if you can hold off one more week double down next week and then your final upgrade will be ready by finals! And just holding back another week will leave you will a couple more trades for another week especially with all the carnage around atm

    SC_Kev7 · 19/07/2019 at 11:08

    Hey mate. Is this Oskar or Liam Baker? Oskar is only on an extended bench so if you can wait until 5ish tonight for final Sunday teams you're decision could be made for you.

    As for rookie downgrades. Clubs are handing out debuts now. Watch for Snelling tonight v Crows

Big G · 19/07/2019 at 10:39

Who is trading out Fyfe immediately? Thoughts on Kyle Dunkley's js?

    Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 10:44

    I dont really like his JS guess we will find out more at 5pm i like hill alot though if his an option for you? He has what GWS lack so i think or hope he can hang around for a while.

    I don't have the plums to trade out Fyfe but If you dont have a neale macrae cripps i can see the temptation of moving him on for one of these blokes if you believe his longer than 1 week.

    The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 12:09

    Holding at the moment but tempted to trade him to Merrett and use the cash gained to upgrade Heater to Whitfield.
    Got 4 trades so going down to 4 isn't too bad…if I had 4 or less I'd hold him.

      The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 14:36

      Sorry. That made no sense. Got 6 trades at the mo.

    redherringfc · 19/07/2019 at 12:55

    Gone.

    Picking up a forward to open up a mid/forward swing which I’ve sorely missed all season.

    The crumbler · 19/07/2019 at 13:34

    Thinking of trading to r.marshal through dpp

Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 10:42

short and sweet kev, love ya work mate a nice quick and informative read!
I have 165k and 6 trades left.

would love some feedback an throw any options at me always respect and appreciate the communitys contribution it's good to get a view from someone else and not be so narrow minded..

DEF: LLoyd Williams Hurn Ryan Sicily BSmith (burgess Naish)

MID: Cripps Macrae Fyfe* Neale Treloar Oliver MCrouch Sloane (DClarke Bewley KDunkley)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (Bines)

FWD: Danger TKelly Dunkley Marshall Heeney Cameron (Setters Gardner)

So i'd say im full premo with BSmith, Cameron and ROB my biggest issues.
I am 7k short of ROB -> Grundy ROB plays a ruckless essendon but his BE is 159 so i guess this move must be done sooner than later.

I'm open too trading someone to Hill he has that zippy electric x factor GWS lack i like his JS alot. Ideally getting Hill in my mids would be best to give me a swing with setters but will move him on if need be. I need a big bank built up without sacrificing too much bench coverage alot easier said than done i hope to get a whitfield/boak in coming weeks.

FIRE AWAY 🙂

    The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 12:11

    Hold for finals Mav.
    Fyfe could be out for more than 1 so you might need to trade next week.

      Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 12:50

      Hold off on ROB too grundy also ranger?

        The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 13:12

        If you're going ok in ya leagues then I wouldn't trade unless it's due to an injury mate.
        That teams gonna be competitive as it is and if you can hold ya trades you can use them during finals to grab a POD that might get you the win.

Westy · 19/07/2019 at 11:15

I am so done! Still had Darcy Moore and Caleb Daniel on field and now Fyfe.
Shunted Moore for Dunkley and brought in Hill for Baker.
This has not been a good supercoach year. 1 trade left, no cash left, and nowhere near full premo. If the team was intact it would look like this.
D Lloyd Hurn Stewart Houli Logue Answerth (Naish Gardner)
M McRae Dunkley Fyfe B Crouch Merrett Cripps Neale Stack (Clarke Hately Hayes)
R Grundy Gawn (Bines)
F Danger Marshall Kelly Boak Daniel Gunston (Parker Hill)

TelescopicCox · 19/07/2019 at 11:26

Are you going for League or Rank Mav? You could get away without making any moves this week, especially if Clarke pulls out a decent score tonight against the Crows. I do think Grundy is a must have but ROB could go large tonight, so could wait

    Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 11:40

    Hi TC, apprecaite the feedback.. that was my thought originally but his BE makes me worry a bit is all. I only play for leagues and will make finals in all but 1 i think so I could hold the week and hope ROB goes bonkers tonight grundys BE is still 135 from memory but knowing my luck grundy will go 150 and ROB 70 again haha

      TelescopicCox · 19/07/2019 at 11:51

      I'd defs lead towards a hold. Hoping ROB has a big one for you tonight

Steeeve · 19/07/2019 at 11:33

Ah that magical time of year when all the rookies I wanted for the following season get a few meaningless games, ensuring they will cost $250k next year.

Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 11:36

Also fellas I Have my new movie coming out in 2020, top gun 2!
I get a bonus from royalties so if EVERYONE can get down to there local cinema and give it a watch that'd be appreciated go two, three even four times if you wish! cheers fellas

    "You screw up this much and you'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong"

TelescopicCox · 19/07/2019 at 11:52

3 trades left. Should I play Chol on field this week since I can't get him up to anything decent without a 2nd trade?

    Funkhouser · 19/07/2019 at 13:42

    Chol is a bit too much of an unknown to leave as F6, though he may do fine, I have 6 trades so have done the 2 trades to crawl me up to R.Gray from Chol but with 3 trades left you might be best riding your luck with him.

    Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 13:50

    Unfortunately i think you have to roll the dice on chol, TC. 1 trade and still a couple weeks from finals is too risky.

Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 12:50

Question for best rookie to jump on? Nothing more then likely to be cover and hold a spot.

Hill for gws?

Snelling? Tackling machine?

Anyone else?

    TBone_9 · 19/07/2019 at 13:01

    Snelling hasn’t even played a game yet, don’t know why you’d jump on without looking. Quaynor, Dunkley if he holds his spot or Hill next week

      Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 14:28

      Thanks tbone. Need to jump today. Dunkley or hil you reckon likely to stay on?

        Ja191 · 19/07/2019 at 17:44

        hill looks the goods plus gws like their small forwards

        Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:50

        Hill's the go mate…Dunkley's been dumpleyed 🙂

          Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 19:24

          Thanks rusty! Owe you a beer for your advise over the months lol

hedski · 19/07/2019 at 13:16

Field Answorth or Logue this week?
Can't loop them.
It's hardly my most pressing matter since I have Cogs, Jelly and Fyfe and only 3 trades left but I thought I'd start with a simple problem.
Cheers.

    JohnDJ59 · 19/07/2019 at 14:05

    They will probably score around the same, so it won't matter.

    TBone_9 · 19/07/2019 at 14:28

    Gday Hedski. I reckon I’d roll the dice on Logue, his ceiling is higher than Answerth’s. You have coverage for any of those boys being out mate?

    The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 14:32

    Jeez Hedski, not much luck with the injuries mate.
    Logue for mine but only just.
    Cogs down to Zerret will at least give you a bit of cash to help with those last two trades.

    hedski · 19/07/2019 at 16:21

    Thanks fellas, Logue it is (was leaning that way).
    I will be trading Cogs, not sure who to yet, I have Clarke and Bewley as cover for Fyfe and Kelly or if Chol fires I can swing a Danger/Dunkley type to the mids and take his score.
    Was thinking of going all out mega risky and trading Jelly and Cogs to Tobias and Murph and then Logue/Answorth to either Llyod/Whitfield next week, came to my senses though (for now)

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:11

    It's excruciating watching Answerth still on 18 points at 3/4 time and hoping he gets to 50 or so, better off with Logue I reckon mate.

The crumbler · 19/07/2019 at 13:45

NEED TO WIN THIS WEEK
Sitting equal 8th with 4 people in my cash league and got a sure win last round so need to cement my spot this week but I'm in a pickle with fyfe out. 4 trades left $3700 bank

Williams, Lloyd, Hurn, Laird, T.Stewart, Rich, (Burges, Naish)
Neal, Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Sloan, Kelly, D.Clarke (Setterfield, Bewley, Hately)
Grundy, Gawn (b.williams)
Dunkley, Dangerfield, Boak, Billings, Heany, Dahlhaus (Chol, Gardner)

Option 1 fyfe to marshal through dunkley. Clarke to I. Hill to leave me 150k

Option 2 keep fyfe trade clarke and setterfield to merret and J.nobel leaving me $300

    The crumbler · 19/07/2019 at 13:46

    T.kelly in mid

    TBone_9 · 19/07/2019 at 15:30

    Hey Crumbler, if you really need to win this week I’d consider Fyfe out, swing Heeney(any mid fwd swing you have) to the mids and grab T. Greene. Then use your second trade to go Setterfield to Merrett. Leaves you with 2 trades left for emergencies with no more rookies on field. Good luck mate

      The crumbler · 19/07/2019 at 16:24

      Cheer mate that's a great idea. Hate going into the finals without fyfe but better than not going in at all

James · 19/07/2019 at 15:01

7 trades and $102.3k in the bank. Midfield right now is Macrae, Fyfe, Neale, Cripps, Treloar, Cogs, B Crouch and Clarke. Thinking of going Answerth to Quaynor and Cogs to Luke Parker (I know his BE is high but he has a decent run home and has been very consistent). Thoughts?

Mikeee · 19/07/2019 at 15:12

Fyfes gotta be traded out <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/rzN/bg_FFFFFF/txt_DDDDDD/border_FFFFFF/flags_0/.png&quot; width="1"/>

    Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 15:48

    Surely not, he will be back next week most likely

      TheLostBoys · 19/07/2019 at 17:06

      Is there more info yet on a time frame for Fyfe yet?

JugHead · 19/07/2019 at 16:27

Does anyone have any info on Lachie Weller? Back next week I'm hoping.

Mark · 19/07/2019 at 16:57

hey guys treloar or Merrett?

    Ja191 · 19/07/2019 at 17:25

    Depends if money’s a factor but purely on points treloar any day

TheLostBoys · 19/07/2019 at 17:04

Hey community, looking for some advice. Going for rank and have both Kelly and Fyfe. Trying to decide if I should hold or trade…but down to my last trade. Team is:
Lloyd, Whitfield, Hurn, Laird, Sicily, Williams (Logue, Gardner)
Neale, Macrea, Cripps, Fyfe*, Kelly*, Trelore, Sloan, B.Crouch, (Setterfield, Clarke, Bewley)
Grundy, Gawn (Sweet)
Dangerfield, Boak, Kelly, Marshall, Ziebel, Gray (Parker, Young)

Should I hold and use Setterfield and Clarke for cover, or trade for Dunkley – and if so, Kelly or Fyfe out?
Inclined to hold and just pray for good luck – what do you all think?

    Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 17:22

    If you only have 1 trade left, I’d hold for any season ending injuries.

Dash · 19/07/2019 at 17:40

5 Trades – 137k
I am trying to make finals. Sitting 8th. Opponent has Fyfe too. Was hoping to loophole Dylan Clarke tonight, but at the moment need to play him as no coverage on bench, unless I make some changes.
Got Answerth and Setterfield with Dual position. Love to get your trade advice.

Lloyd, Houli, Sicily, Laird, Stewart, Answerth (Burgess, Gardner)
Neale, Macrae, Sloane, Danger, Cripps, Oliver, Clarke, Bewley (Fyfe, Baker, Hately)
Grundy, S Martin (Z Clark)
Dunkley, Kelly, Heeney, Boak, R Gray, J Cameron (Setterfield, Bines)

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 19:30

    Maybe ditch Fyfe Dash for the best mid you can get..would give you a better chance at the win.

KSinny · 19/07/2019 at 17:52

Thoughts on Sloane as VC tonight? Will he be shut down by Clarke?

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:56

    That's a distinct possibility Sinny

Pranav · 19/07/2019 at 18:05

Lloyd Hurn Williams Stewart ryan logue (answerth Gardner)

Macrae Fyfe Cripps neale bont taranto brouch dusty (Clarke hately bewley)

Grundy Gawn (bines)

Dunkley Marshall danger boak telly heeney (chol burgess)

7 trades left 121k in the bank

Plan was Whitfield and dunkley in for Clarke and answerth but Dunkley out plus need Clarke to cover Fyfe changes these plans.
Thoughts on answerth to Quaynor this week and then next week logue to Whitfield

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:38

    Hey Pranav, how about Answerth to Quaynor and Hately to Hill this week?
    Makes you some cash and creates a swing in the mids so you could swing Dunkley or someone up there for Fyfe
    Swap Burgess with Gardner and you could loop Chol with Hill.

      Pranav · 19/07/2019 at 20:12

      Would hill have good js? I feel like Quaynor has better js than hill albeit at a higher cost. I do like introducing that swing set which allows me to maximise my points this week and the future definitely something to think about

    Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 18:39

    I like the Quaynor idea mate! Feel like he should get games and whitty still got a big BE

      Pranav · 19/07/2019 at 20:10

      It’s a close call if tried doing these moves this week I’d be 25k short so I need Whitfield to drop and logue rise to combine for 25k. Worst case scenario I use an extra trade and instead of getting rid of logue maybe try and get rid of hately and bewley

Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 18:38

Gee hope bont gets up this week
Have traded kelly to the Zork ahead of rowan Marshall hopefully it can sneak me up the ranks a little and into the top 500
Could still be looking at a donut this week if bont misses, running bewley as cover for Fyfe

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:48

    Hi Sam, Bevo seems to think he'll be ok, saw this on Herald Sun article from a few hours ago…
    “We’re pretty confident (about Marcus),” Beveridge told reporters on Friday.

    “It’s settled well, and because there’s no real instability there that just gives you confidence it’ll be okay.

Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:51

FYFE
TRADE? HOLD?
whether its a 1 or 2 week injury who knows (personally i think it's 2+ but fyfe is as hard as a cats head) but i believe he will then be 'managed' for the latter part of the season once freo are 0% chance of finals. The problem for me is I don't think anyone is dominating enough and screming "pick me". Kelly is injured and the bont 50/50 for this weekend they're probably the only two who'd tempt me so i'll just hold.

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:54

    I'm holding Mav…by some miracle I have cover on all lines again this week, even top gun Mathew Parker is back lol

One Touch Wonder · 19/07/2019 at 18:53

even though I have fyfe and coniglio to deal with, I have $229,500 cash, 9 trades and every one of my bench is playing this week.

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 18:55

    How come you haven't traded Cogs out otw?…he ain't coming back

Rick Grimes · 19/07/2019 at 18:58

ROB for the VC tonight. Up againt himself, should win a few tap outs.

    Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 19:06

    Tempted Rick But when there is so much hype around a player to go 150+ and dominate they usually do the opposite and fail to ton up haha I've held off on ROB -> Grundy this week so I hope he goes huge.

      The Ranger · 19/07/2019 at 22:03

      Looking like the best non trade you’ve done all year Mav!

        Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 22:22

        Very happy to have held thanks to some very good advice ranger, cheers! Pity I didn’t VC him haha

    hedski · 19/07/2019 at 20:25

    Could be a great call Rick, 50 odd at QTR time

      Rick Grimes · 19/07/2019 at 22:27

      I suppose i have to take the 150. Got a feeling that will be lite this week, but it's points in the hand, i guess.

        Maverick_ · 19/07/2019 at 22:32

        Gee your a hard man too please rick haha

BradleyTC99 · 19/07/2019 at 19:18

Probably a dumb question but i'd be making the right decision benching Dylan Clarke and fielding both Hawkins and Jez Cameron right? Or do i swing danger back into the fwds, loop jez and hawk and field Clarke? I cant loop in the mids unfortunately

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 19:47

    I think the way Hawkins has been going lately, I'd be tempted to loop him and play Clarke…could backfire though, your call.

Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 19:37

Is the below legit or bs???

"He will undergo surgery and then undertake a recovery and rehabilitation program with an estimated time frame, at this stage, 16 weeks."

Some shocking news for the Dockers

TRADE FYFE!!!!

    kyle · 19/07/2019 at 19:40

    this is for Hogan not Fyfe

      Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 19:42

      Made me shit the bed reading this haha

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 19:45

    What are ya trying to do Beard?…give us a Heart attack or something LOL, yeah it's about Jesse Hogan not Fyfe.

Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 19:51

Sorry lads I’m
On the phone and I scrolled down below comments and it shows people saying stuff it’s on Twitter I clicked it. The. It has someone saying good try troll etc. made me reverse trades 😂😂😂😂

TheLostBoys · 19/07/2019 at 20:06

Anyone else finding the herald sun match centre not working? Need my live supercoach points in a better format that the supercoach site!

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:13

    When has it ever worked mate?…it's far from live, check out fanfooty.com.au

Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:16

ROB's looking good for those with the balls enough to VC him.

Steeeve · 19/07/2019 at 20:18

Traded in Dylan Shiel last week. A 62 cost me the win and therefore my season. This week he has one handball and one kick straight to the opposition to quarter time. The worst decision I've made all year at the wrong time. He is a complete spud. Top of the never again list.

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:33

    He's going all right Steve…could deliver tonight.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 19/07/2019 at 21:50

    78 at 3 quarter time, going alright now thankfully… I traded him in last week too

Stacky23 · 19/07/2019 at 20:28

Neale or Treloar for coniglio, Treloar gives me a better chance of getting Whitfield in the backline and is a pod in my leagues or is neale a must have, leaves me with 4 trades and 40-80k depending on choice

    Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:35

    I'd say Neale's a must have with his numbers.

Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:32

Hey Derek…if you can get some internet on your Mediterranean booze cruise, whack the E on Burgess, he's playing. 🙂

Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 20:41

Wow its dead in here tonight…I'm out.

Russty_ · 19/07/2019 at 21:07

Why?…it's just a waste of time obviously.

    Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 21:11

    lol I was being a goose. Just showing some love son!

    Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 21:16

    Hey mate. Any trades this week? Just got the boys to bed so I’m on for a while now.

Brn · 19/07/2019 at 21:10

The plan is to play next week says fyfe

Sounds like he has his rehab week planned out well

Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 21:18

Was going to bring in Merrett for Kelly this week but decided against it. So far so good

    Fearthebeard · 19/07/2019 at 21:25

    Similar plan. Was tossing up a midfield for cogs.

    Couldn’t decide.

    Despite Whitfield having a 150 breakeven flogged hore for Whitfield as i knew I wanted him.

    This week the mid will pick himself for me I hope.

    Won’t be trealor sadly who I wanted unless he bleeds some cash or Clarke goes huge lol.

    Though Sloane Duncan zerrett crouch jpk Parker all been on my radar so someone step up hah

    Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 21:53

    A 40 point quarter. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    hedski · 19/07/2019 at 21:57

    Just because I like to cause myself pain Holty I might go Cogs to Toby.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 19/07/2019 at 22:23

    Holty I think he heard you?

      Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 22:25

      😩
      To his credit he has played a awesome half of football.

Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 22:04

ROB has gotta he the best rookie that ever was sc wise

    Trades · 20/07/2019 at 00:46

    Barlow would like a word

JohnDJ59 · 19/07/2019 at 22:07

I know I shouldn't dwell on past bad trades, but every time I see B.Smith outscore Laird and Billings outscore Walters, it just makes me more determined not to make the same mistakes next year and ever after.

SamuraiPizzaCat · 19/07/2019 at 22:16

Good to see Dylan Clarke putting in a good game, decent Fyfe cover!

JugHead · 19/07/2019 at 22:16

Frustrating to have your benchie (Clarke) outscoring two of your premos (Sloane, Laird)

Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 22:35

My memories of matt crouch was him being a contested beast racking up the pill and tackling, now he seems like a link up player that only really handballs in the middle of the ground, gaff like player who doesn’t kick

    Holty01 · 19/07/2019 at 22:49

    Agreed Sam. Been very disappointing. I guess with Sloane and his brother in the midfield, someone needs to take that link up role. Doesn’t help us M Crouch owners out however.
    But the game tonight certainly showed how slow Adelaide are through that midfield.

    hedski · 19/07/2019 at 22:50

    Gotta disagree Sam thought he deserved more than 90.

      Sam_01 · 19/07/2019 at 23:08

      Disagree in what sense? I guess I just had a flick through his previous season stats and nothing much has changed
      Don’t get me wrong I thought he played well and deserved more points but he doesn’t play very influential footy at the moment

        hedski · 20/07/2019 at 01:03

        He only had 2 tackles so I see what ya mean, I think If the crows had of got up his score would have been boosted, had 11 kicks, most of them hit a target under pressure I thought.

    Streaker · 20/07/2019 at 10:15

    He gets enough of the ball, he just handballs too much.

Bill · 19/07/2019 at 22:37

I am very glad to see this post.I will definitely share this post with others.Thanks for sharing.

    Good bot

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 14:32

    Pangu very much.

Defying_Madness · 20/07/2019 at 05:39

Tempted to bring in Parker. Massive POD and has had a huge year. However I am a fair bit worried about his scoring when JPK is in the team. It seems to trend a bit lower

    Lekdog · 20/07/2019 at 11:42

    I think I sightly prefer JPK

COREYSC · 20/07/2019 at 11:25

Take Snelling score of 49 or go with Bewley

    Ja191 · 20/07/2019 at 11:33

    Bewely

    Lekdog · 20/07/2019 at 11:42

    Bewley

Soothsayer · 20/07/2019 at 12:17

Lekdog, I’m going Taranto. It might kill me but I’m going in .

    Big G · 20/07/2019 at 17:44

    Like

Big G · 20/07/2019 at 12:49

Field Bobby Hill or Bewley?

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 16:00

    Hill

      Big G · 20/07/2019 at 17:47

      I played it conservative cos my opponent had Bewley. Bobby had a good first quarter so hopefully he keeps his place. Good to see Cameron tearing it up

Stupid Coach · 20/07/2019 at 12:59

Should I trade out Cognilio this week (have D Clarke as bench cover). I know he is done for the season but I only have 6.trades left was thinking of waiting til the finals before I got rid of him. Who would you bring in. I have Cripps, Macrae, Bont, Neale, Oliver, Merrett and Sloane. Thoughts?

    Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 13:35

    I like Duncan or Taranto.
    Duncan is dirt cheap for what is usually a consistent player and a high ceiling . Look at how he started the season and previous years, gun.

    Clarke’s score is respectable but id move cogs on.

Holty01 · 20/07/2019 at 13:12

Go you Blue Baggers

    dontblushbaby · 20/07/2019 at 13:33

    Especially P.Cripps to go large

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 13:35

    Don't think the Gold Coast will trouble them much mate, good luck 🙂

    neil demons delight · 20/07/2019 at 14:10

    improved out of sight under Teague ,Still don't think they will go with him Voss is the Boss

    The Lost Boys · 20/07/2019 at 15:13

    Is Cripps off the field or something? Put the VC on him thinking he'd go big but 20 odd points??? ^TC

      Brn · 20/07/2019 at 15:25

      Had a knock and playing a bit up fwd.

      Tagged well by a combination of swallow and lemmings.

      Having a general bad day too.

      C grundy for me…

KeenButClueless · 20/07/2019 at 14:17

I brought Lynch in during the week, and reversed it yesterday. Was always sure this was going to mean he would go big today. Can’t bear to watch 😖

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 15:59

    Hey keen , he's doing ok today, could still score 30 next week though when you really need him.

neil demons delight · 20/07/2019 at 16:55

pendles finger still a worry could be costly to pies

cash_cows · 20/07/2019 at 17:06

Take chol's 83 or go with underwhelming dahlhaus?

    hedski · 20/07/2019 at 17:13

    I'm wondering the same thing with Hawkins.

    JohnDJ59 · 20/07/2019 at 17:29

    Take the 83

BlueBaggerJosh · 20/07/2019 at 17:32

Lynch hitting form, could be a cheap fwd POD next year

Defying_Madness · 20/07/2019 at 17:34

Still got 7 trades left luckily so I can use 2 to get Whitfield next week. Absolute gun he is

    Sam_01 · 20/07/2019 at 17:59

    Got caught on the bench hard for 8 odd minutes could of been pushing 90 odd!

    Pranav · 20/07/2019 at 18:23

    hes an absolute machine watching this gws game as a non owner is painful. thought they would send mayne to him like they did last week with hurn

Tommo09 · 20/07/2019 at 18:25

Neale Danger or Gawn Captain?

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:23

    Yep…lol

      Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 20:22

      eeney meeney miney moe Tommo.
      both gawn and danger have the ability to go 140 tomorrow against there opponents.
      I cannot split them and unfortunately I have the same decision to make.
      Leaning toward Danger marginally

SCrookie · 20/07/2019 at 18:36

Well cripps the overrated pretty boyy flopped as VC who is everyone captaining that doesn't have brodie
options are danger, gawn, macrae or dunkley. will libba gonna affect the two dogs? i think probably dunkley most

    SCrookie · 20/07/2019 at 18:38

    Neale is an option too sorry

      SCrookie · 20/07/2019 at 18:39

      and Lloyd lol

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:22

    Gawn against Hickey could go big or Danger who's been in great form lately.
    Wouldn't write Cripps off yet he could still be a bit injured and or tired.

Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:10

Cox pretty ineffective today apparently he used to play Basketball?…he can't catch a ball to save his life.

    Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:23

    Definately Due to be dropped russty but collingwood are still riding the high of his prelim final.. hasn't done anything since

      Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:28

      Yeah agree Mav, Pies are really struggling lately I thought Cox was coming along after last year but he's gone backwards.

Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:20

Hold on the ROB too grundy trade this week thinking ROB would outscore brodie….. hmmm
CD absolutely love the bloke!

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:23

    Not much in it in the end Mav. Wish I'd held Rob now.

      Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:24

      just a price differential is what i'm worried about russty..
      ROB drops and grundy rises again

        Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:33

        Not sure how many trades you have Mav but you might have to stick with him.

          Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:40

          still got 6 trades so ticking along nicely got 170k in the bank..
          Im full premo my 3 question marks are ROB, BSmith and cameron but all certainly lifted this week!

            Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:44

            Well yeah…so do 2 trades if you need to get Grundy in …if ROB spuds it next week, otherwise hold I reckon.

Sam_01 · 20/07/2019 at 19:21

-Gee wiz Grundy is just an absolute freak his stats are ridiculous
Happy I gave him the C.check.
-Whitfield pick over hurn last week still looking the goods to finnish my backline. check.
-Lucking out with Toby Greene as my F6 as the giants mids fell apart, not looking like I’ll need to upgrade him after all. check.
-Williams and treloar regulation tonnes. check.

Derek · 20/07/2019 at 19:50

JR SURVIVOR GROUP

It is getting hot in the Champion of Champions Group.

We lost 2 more really good players last week

Chartomben (2271) & Demons delight (2415) were the two eliminated last week. Pretty tough when 2415 gets you eliminated. Bad luck fellas.

Dodge the bullet this week were; yucky (2422) and Shake n bake (2423).

Immunity for this week is GreendaleFC with a very nice 2555.

Shout out to Ya hate to see it, with an almost top score of 2550.

Good luck fellas, there be only 9 left after this week

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 20:03

    Nice work Derek, hows the cruise going?…you hooked up yet?…lol
    Just my luck playing you this week that you got decent internet at the right time 😉

      Derek · 20/07/2019 at 23:35

      Going great. Hot and sunny. Wifi when off the ship is the best I can do.

Sam_01 · 20/07/2019 at 19:55

Hahah giving myself a quick rev up rusty everything fell into place that game couldn’t help it

    Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 19:59

    No worries mate well done, your spelling isn't up to par though, unless Whitfield is from Finland lol
    Had to find some fault somewhere haha

      Sam_01 · 20/07/2019 at 20:42

      😂 good pick up

Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 20:06

Rayner rates himself pretty highly apparently, models his game on Dustin Martin..maybe in Dusty's sleep.
Hipwood also is holding them back in the forward half..either does something half adequate, or nothing at all.
both could do with a spell in the 2's I reckon, give someone else a chance.
Rayner has been a big bust for a high draft pick.

    Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 20:13

    I agree Rayner has been below par in games and irrelevant in SC but I think he has some x-factor I think it'll click for him soon enough and will be a great player I feel Another Preseason is all he needs.

      Russty_ · 20/07/2019 at 20:21

      Maybe that will happen Mav but also maybe not, he seems way too overconfident for someone with such a bad record for a number 1 draft pick.
      I think better players come through the system more often when being picked from lower down in the draft..even more mature aged players.
      They have more to play for, and aren't so full of themselves and their own hype.

      neil demons delight · 20/07/2019 at 20:42

      Seen both close up a few weeks ago and i agree rust Rayner needs to do more .His disposal is often poor .Just goes to show you how high draft picks are not always great immediately .Look at Higgins compared to what Walsh has done in his first year, I just hope the Dees use theirs wisely and trade for a ready made like a Neale Your bloke Russty ,Billings is on the radar just not quite worth a no. 1 or 2 Congrats to the surviving survivors and to Derek ,great effort mate NDD

      DavidC · 21/07/2019 at 06:54

      yep, he will come good, only his 2nd year. A star in the making.

Nifty · 20/07/2019 at 21:03

Does Logue get the scores for 3 tackles there?

BlueBaggerJosh · 20/07/2019 at 21:42

Holy s**t should’ve put the C on Lyons 🚨, Been a good POD for me ever since I traded him in

    Sam_01 · 20/07/2019 at 22:08

    Yeah huge score! I grabbed Zorko as a pod this week and it was looking horrible at HT then in the last ten mins of the third he got like 6 frees for haha, 22 touches at 45% for a 107 I’ll take it lol

    Swans2012 · 21/07/2019 at 09:05

    Nice pickup blue, he is looking impressive the last month

Trades · 20/07/2019 at 21:46

Dockers vs swans game so bad they have just over half supercoach points delegates and its 3/4 time!

    Maverick_ · 20/07/2019 at 21:50

    watch them scale Lloyd up 30-40 points after FT too use the points up

BlueBaggerJosh · 20/07/2019 at 22:10

Lyons 166 🙏, Andrews can get farked.

    Beezneez · 21/07/2019 at 20:27

    Bet the Crows and GC wish they still had him.

    Russty_ · 22/07/2019 at 05:06

    Wish I'd never traded Andrews in, gone backwards this year…and now he's suspended this week.

Big G · 20/07/2019 at 22:19

Is Heeney injured or what?

Daniel · 21/07/2019 at 02:08

Should I bank Westhoffs 81 or roll the dice with hawkins? He hasn't gone 80+ since before his bye, surely he gets back into some sort of form sooner rather than later?

    Swans2012 · 21/07/2019 at 09:04

    I’d roll the dice, but I like dice

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 10:38

    Roll the dice mate. Hawkins has done some heroic things against the Hawks over the years. I reckon he is good for 3-4 goals today.

      Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 11:14

      roll it. I had setters looped and was prepared to take his score if he went 80 odd after Cameron’s past month. Cameron went 140!! I certainly did not expect that against the pies haha hawks v Geelong are always nail biters and that means goals are huge SC points if ya kick a few, i’d back in Hawkins.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2019 at 09:54

That free kick in the goal square to the lions was a howler.

He used his body to take the mark not his hands and Oscar preformed a better dive than Greg Loganious.

If anything should have been 50M for staging which I thought the AFL were going to crack down on.

Pity it marred a great game and contest…

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:55

    That was a shockingly bad call mate…and now they've admitted it was the wrong call, doesn't help Roos much now.

s c tragic · 21/07/2019 at 10:57

Lets hope the Bont runs out today, covering Fyfe & Kelly isn't bad enough….. I don't know about Fyfe is life it certainly aint fair!!!!

    Brn · 21/07/2019 at 11:11

    He should play. Hope if he is out that i get time to trade him to yeo, because im not coping a donut

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:05

Morning community! Time for some Sunday reading……

Been a busy boy the last few weeks and havent had much time to post on my beloved JR website. Well, I am down to two trades after having taken an aggressive strategy into the 2019 season. It has brought me mixed results. The Whitfield injuries really set me back. Had to trade the prick out twice and now he is firing again. Trading out Dunkley in round 4 when he was buggering around in the forward line was my biggest mistake this year. Not having Whitfield and Dunkley now are costing Tophawk dearly.

However, I have had some really good stalwarts which were in my starting team. Brad Crouch……what can I say. What a jet. Has played all season after years on the sidelines with injuries. Brad, I started with your bro too, but as far as I am concerned you have bragging rights. I reckon your better than Matt. Matt been good too mind you. Good boys. Jack Billings……I had him last year and he crapped all over my head and so I decided to start with him this year. Makes sense right? Bloody definition of insanity. But it was my gutsy call for 2019 and for once Billings stood up and delivered. Good boy. Started with Zac Williams and he has been sensational.
Had some ripper rookie wins. Traded in ROB at his starting price and netted me the cash to enable me to get Grawndy. Started with Gibbons and still have him. Played every game this year and another tonne yesterday. Well done Gibbo.

My premo trade in successes are as follows- Rowan Marshall, Travis Boak, Max Gawn, Jack Macrae, Jake Lloyd, Tom Stewart, Scott Lycett, and Zach Merrett. Trading flops were Justin Westhoff (You bloody flog), Lachie Whitfield (IN AND OUT IN AND OUT AND ROUND AND ROUND WE GO), David Mundy (I knew he was too old) Thanks for the tonne last night though. James Sicily, Robbie Gray, and Lipinski (WTF was I thinking with Lipinski)………

So, 2 trades and $200K in the sky rocket with Answerth, Logue, Chol, Gibbons, Clarke, Burgess, Bines (Patsy), Gardner (Patsy) and Oskar Baker making up the bench. On track for 2500 this week with good bench depth and no Cogs, and J Kelly deal with. Both traded out this week. One short of full premo. Ranking around 10K and will play finals in 6-7/10 leagues. The Tophawks are still chugging along and scoring nicely. I need some luck with injuries now and hope Fyfe comes back next week. It aint over till its over!! How are other coaches faring as we approach finals? Cheers community. TH

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:39

    Hey TH, looks like you're in a good place going into finals making 6-7 in your leagues, I'd be stoked with that.
    I was feeling ok about my team before this week but it looks a bit weak and full of spuds now lol, picked Andrews after a couple of tons and he's been nothing but shite ever since, now he's a liability.
    Going by this week's performance I could be struggling to win finals games but as you say, it ain't over until it's over, gotta fight it out.
    Most of the fun for me is getting there and having a chance at the end but it's easy to get knocked out of finals any week if your opp has a good week.
    Next year…gotta hold onto my players longer who are spudding it up early, if they're decent players, they usually turn things around…too many trades wasted doing that, I've found I burned a lot of trades this year just swapping rookies out though, trying to get a reliable bench.
    Anyways mate, good luck for the rest of it.

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 12:51

      Gday Russty! I agree 100% with that. I was a dumb arse for trading out Dunkley after round 4. He is an absolute gun and I should have given him much more time to turn it around. And guess what, had I kept him, my ranking today would be inside the top 5K I reckon. Thats how costly that trade was. That is one big lesson I learnt too. Keep those under performing premos and back them in. I will probably run out of trades but I have a very tough team still and if injuries stay away I can still have a decent impact come finals. At least I got those two GWS butter boys out of my team. (Kelly and Cogs) Both gun players but too injury prone. Will stay away from Whitfield too now. Not getting him in for finals. I reckon 1 out of my last 2 trades has to go to Dunkley. Then the other another durable premo and then hope for the best. Cheers mate! TH

    neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 13:28

    Finally finished reading your comment TH. I wrote about a week back how you went 9 prems and 6 midpricers whereas Lek and myself were all prems and the best set up ,if there is one, will be known shortly. I am thinking you were right but overdone your m/p too much Maybe 11 / 4 but who knows .I am sure there would be 2or 3 M/p players you would not pick and like wise pure guns and rookies ,like me would cull one or two prems Simpson ,thanks Lek, and mundy for mine and replaced with 4 m/p's like williams Libba Bcrouch and Smith , How good is hindsight mate good luck great playing against you and Rossty , cheers boys NDD

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 19:13

      Cheers Neil! How good was Clayton Oliver today. I dont have him, but he is a beast. Yeah, I did have a bit of a midpricer focus this season and all in all did OK. Punted Rocky at the perfect time and started with Brad Crouch. Lipinski and the Hoff were my two howlers in that department this season. We live and we learn. Still, I may see you in the finals as I am still winning match ups even with very limited trades. Go well Neil. Cheers. TH

    hedski · 21/07/2019 at 13:48

    G'day Toppa, I've had to go all out to try and keep in the top 8 in my work cash league (currently 6th on %), traded Jelly and Cogs to Greene and Duncan this week leaving me $235k and one trade (ouch) that I'll probably have to use next week to upgrade Logue.
    All or nothing now!!!
    Looking like a good game at the G today.
    Go cattas 👍🍻🍻

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 14:14

      Howdy Hedski. Gotta risk it for da biskit as they say! I have gone ultra aggressive this year too. Two trades left which is unheard of for me at this time of the season. But I just need the wave of injury luck now. If I can dodge injuries like you, who knows we might come home hard! And may the best team win! Carn the Hawkers!!!

        hedski · 21/07/2019 at 14:37

        Your guys are looking like the best team, need a big second half from the cats.
        I'm 150 points down in my cashy with a half to come from Duncan, Stewart and Hawkins, then it's his Oliver vs my ANGUS…….Not lookin good for me.
        We both have Hurn and both get Answorths score.

        hedski · 21/07/2019 at 16:00

        To good Toppa

          TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 18:58

          Enjoyed the win today mate! Hawks just keep pulling out surprising wins against top teams like the cats. Will take it though. Keep fighting in that cashies league. Brayshaw is a farking flog!! I started with him and I punted him after round 2. Thats one good decision I made this year. LOL

            hedski · 21/07/2019 at 19:24

            Never got the chance to punt the prick no matter how much I wanted to always had bigger problems, well done hawks.

    Beezneez · 21/07/2019 at 14:56

    Have 14 players left from my original team. Ranked 518 and was projected for 2680 before the round – fat chance of that. Had Fyfe covered by Clarke and lucky I traded in Whitfield which pushed Quaynor to the bench who will now cover for Hurn. Was planning on last trades to be for B Smith and Crouch but won't be doing that now. Smith has turned it around since playing more mid and forward of centre. Think it pays to hang onto your premos no matter how up and down they might be – cue Dunkley's return to the midfield. Playing Russty in g'n'r and should win to maintain 3rd spot in that league. TH playing you next week. Only in one other league with mates where I'm top by the length of the straight. Team is full of premos but you can't account for injuries.

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 19:02

      Hi Beezneez. You are having a wonderful season. I have the Instagator in my league GNR and I will defeat him comfortably this week. I am steeling myself for a huge fight against you next week. My season has been a frustrating one, untimely injuries, Cogs last week, etc and it has kept me around that 10K mark. But I am still scoring very well and am hoping to rattle a few cages during finals. Looking forward to next week. Cheers BN. TH

        Beezneez · 21/07/2019 at 20:05

        Hi TH. Luck plays a such a big part with injuries and decisions we make. I was all set last week to replace Kelly with Bont and almost changed to Coniglio at the last minute. Had vc on Cripps with Danger c but changed to Grundy at the last minute. Don't think I'll ever reach the heights of my rookie year when I was ranked 32. I remember it eas on the back of a young Jimmy Bartel, Chad Cornes and Buddy Franklin. Don't think I've picked Franklin since, certainly not in the last few years.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2019 at 17:24

    Hey Toppa.
    As you know my strategy this year was the 7 reasons, Grawndy and the top priced player in each possie.

    Out of the 7 still got 5 who have excelled thos year.

    Considered J Kelly one of the reasons but just couldn't afford him in rd 1 team.
    But Brayshaw became jelly rd 8.
    Only cost me $50K changeover so consider that a win but now Jelly is on the pine again.

    Whitfeld will be coming back in.soon to finish my defence.

    Regret? Maybe trading Rob too early for.boak but that has worked out ok.

    Missed Marshall that was a big one, but there is no way you could have known he could play that well..

    Got a couple of KPP 's up fwd but except for misding obrien besides the top 4 you can almost throw a net over the rest.

    THEY went ok this week so hopefully.a sign of things to come.

    With Jelly and Fyfe on the pine will see how far away they are ' may need to trade for finals.

    Best trade straight swap Duursma to Smurf when Cripps was injured. Was meant to a M9 but with Cripps, jelly, fyfe missing lately been a ripping M8.

    In top couple of % of teams overall so think the 7 reasons strategy goes alright …

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 18:55

      Thanks Trigga! You are having a good year mate. I am slugging it out with you in A Graders and she is going down to the wire!! You know me mate, TH is known for his fighting and scrapping. I am no genius like yourself, Finnius, Holty, just to name a few, but I like to run alongside the best in the top leagues in the land. Will see a bit of finals action too now. Bring it on!! Good luck for the rest of the season Trigga. TH

    Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 17:50

    Gday TH, Great read mate.
    Whose your one rookie still onfield stopping you from getting full premo?
    You look in an okay position though atleast you have 200k in hand could be worse!
    Hopefully you make your 6-7 finals and get some luck on the injury front but you look to have a few players on the bench.

    A quick summary of my team for ya TH. Im sitting in the top 10k should make finals in 9/10 leagues, could be better but never mind! I've been relatively conservative with trades compared to previos seasons I have 6 remaining and 170k in the kitty I'm full premo but a few passangers like most. Mine are Cameron, BSmith and ROBs been solid but would love grundy his obviously in bed with someone down at CD. I Think my sharkmove was going Goldy too ROB R5 before his price rise that cashed me right up and til 3 weeks ago ROB had nearly outscored goldy since that move! Not sure i'd be able to do it again though was very risky haha A huge part of SC is luck and thankfully I've had my fair share & avoided majority of the injury carnage. I Could have probably been more aggressive early starting a relatively midprice heavy team but it is what it is I'm still enjoying my season. 🙂

    Lastly I'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone in this community noone here is qualified or claims to be an expert but we all like to see everybody do well and offer advice and opinions it's always taken onboard and at the end of the day noone can force you to do anything you dont want the final call is YOURS 🙂 and to the legends who run this community Lek, patch, BVC, Damo and Matty yous are da real MVPS for the weekly articles and podcasts. keep up the great work

      Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 18:11

      Onya Mav, good read mate and you're in a good position to finish strong and good luck for the remainder, wish I had 6 left.

      TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 18:52

      Good stuff Maverick! All the JR boys are legends. It has been a great forum this year without those muppets like Wow and 66.

      Lipinski will turn into a value for money premo next week. One trade and then just need to manage Logue and Answerth at D6. I can live with that. Touch wood, the injuries stay away. So far so good this round. Cheers. TH

Brn · 21/07/2019 at 11:32

What are people looking at scoring this week?

Im hoping for 2550

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:43

    Hoping to hit 2500. Will be happy with that. Let this Sunday be nice please. Last Sunday Cogs completely farked my round. LOL

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:12

    I'll be lucky to crack 2300 this week, lots of under performers and hardly any tons..one of those weeks.

    Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:18

    I should go 2550 that’s As long as my captain doesn’t flop.

Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 11:39

Do we think Marshall can dominate the twiggy stick english?
I feel he should dominate the tap out but marshall is so good around the ground will english match him?
I am thinking about the C on him

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:45

    I have Marshall and he should score very well against English. I had the VC on Grundy so 314 points had to be banked. Its a gutsy call whacking the C on his nose, but I reckon 130 out of Marshall today is what you could expect. Good luck Mav!

      Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:29

      Howe is named I think I’ll take the C off danger and go Gawn or Marshall now 🤔 id take a 130 from Marshall every day of the week TH

JugHead · 21/07/2019 at 11:48

Birchall OUT

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:50

    Ahhhhh Jesus. And so many coaches traded him in last week. Dodged that bullet. Birchall's body is broken. I think its time to hang up the boots. Great player in his day, but he is no longer SC relevant.

      JugHead · 21/07/2019 at 11:53

      Thats the funny thing about this time of year…..a lot of the time its not about the guy you bring in being better that other choices…..its the luck of NOT bringing in a player who immediately gets injured.

        TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:57

        Thats right Jughead. Its the key. I bought in Zerrett for Cogs this week. He was sub $500K which is cheap, but I grabbed him because he rarely gets injured and is good for 110 every week. Touch a big lump of wood now TH. But when you are down to your last hand full of trades, durability is vital when selecting players. I doubt whether I get Whitfield in for finals as he is suspect to injury.

          Ohgodno · 21/07/2019 at 12:22

          Howe is known for tagging isn’t he Is this a worry for danger and Tim kelly

            Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:26

            Yup expect him to go to kelly or danger

Brn · 21/07/2019 at 11:53

About 5% of teams are going to be really mad when they find out birchall is a late out..

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 11:59

    Yep. Its all about durability, durability and durability at this time of the year. Get the durable blokes in. Birchall is about as durable as a lump of paper mache. LOL

Pman · 21/07/2019 at 12:40

Hi Community, had the VC on Cripps who scored an underwhelming 72 so tossing the coin over Danger and Dunkley for Captain. Danger traditionally scores well against the Hawks and Dunkley is coming off a massive 200. Probably leaning towards Danger as think it's unlikely Dunkley will go massive 2 weeks in a row, what are you thoughts on who the best Captaincy option is? Cheers..

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 12:59

    Hey Pman, Howe's in for Birchall so could be there to tag Danger, Kelly or both, I was gonna go Danger but think I'll roll it on Gawn now.

Pman · 21/07/2019 at 13:05

Thanks for heads up, don't have Gawn so may stick with Dunkley and hope he can go close to replicating last weeks effort.

neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 13:30

Can the dees get Liam Jurrah please better than our rubbish

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 15:09

    Hey Neil, how did Jurrah go in the Alice v Darwin game..did you watch it?

      neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 20:24

      He played well mate as did his brother for the opposite side ,Great spectacle,seen him kick 8 goals in bare feet 2 years back in one half till a spectator ,jessie hogan lent him some boots, Nice win by your boys mate not as bad as people think,neither is Ratten

        Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 21:05

        We were lucky to hang on mate…would like to see Jurrah get back to afl level but he's 30 now and has had a lot of struggles since 2012, good on him for getting back into footy though while he's still young enough….what might have been ay?

Pranav · 21/07/2019 at 13:59

Shannon Hurn is a late out. Going him over Whitfield feels really bad now

TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 14:01

Hurn OUT

    hedski · 21/07/2019 at 14:39

    Hopefully that calf is minor, don't need that.

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 21/07/2019 at 15:26

    Great, think that's season over for me in one league at least

Locked and Loaded · 21/07/2019 at 14:29

Gawn or Marshall C?

    hedski · 21/07/2019 at 14:38

    Gawn

Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 15:13

My whole team is sharting it's pants this week, anyone else having a bad one like that?…so many low scores, it's depressing lol

    Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 15:51

    surprisingly one of me better weeks so far *touch wood* alot has gone my way BSmith, Cameron, ROB all going big and making up for sloane cripps and TKellys below par performances.. I still have gawn as captain who is yet to get a god damn disposal at nearly QT!! and Hurn out means I take burgess score could've been a donut though so got lucky he was back.. may climb a few ranking and win most leagues and i have finnius in the JR mega league that will come down to the wire!!

      neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 15:59

      same here Mav i also have Finn in GNR and will go down to the wire too .Always good to play the champs even better to beat them

    Beezneez · 21/07/2019 at 16:16

    I'm playing you Russty so I don't mind.

      Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 16:21

      You've got me covered Beez, I think everyone's got me covered this week, this is looking like my worst week since round 1.

    KeenButClueless · 21/07/2019 at 16:49

    Only had one player reach his season average for the round. Fortunately it was Grundy with a C. Everyone else underperforming. Just having a total shite season. Need to keep at it, because I want to be invited back to some good leagues next season!

      Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 17:00

      That's it mate gotta stick with it until the end…I'm sure everyone has weeks like this, i've had a good run before this week but I reckon it'll be 10 losses this week lol, cest la vie.

    JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2019 at 17:40

    Bad week, stuffed up both my VC Cripps and C Danger, instead of having Grundy and Gawn, at least both Oliver and Gawn are doing well today. When Hurn was a out, I decided to use my last trade, went Hore to H.Clark. I might win one or two games.

      Pranav · 21/07/2019 at 18:06

      unlucky with the C i was going cripps vc danger c but didnt really think i would need a C cause i anticipated massive cripps score. when i saw cripps score poorly i panicked and chucked the C on grundy for a safe 100+ but maybe under 120 score and after danger 95 looks like i got really lucky. well done on the clark move did you mention him throughout the week?

        JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2019 at 18:17

        I did have the VC on Grundy at first, but I saw a lot of teams with Cripps and changed it to him, my mistake was then not putting the C on Grundy like you did or Gawn. Yes I was talking to Russty about Clark during the week, I was keen on getting him in, but with only one trade left, I wasn't sure, but once Hurn was a out, I thought what have I got to lose, my season is toast anyway due to my over trading during the bye rounds, I might as well go all in.

          Pranav · 21/07/2019 at 20:00

          danger c was a good decision just unlucky really. his tog ground seemed low and i think its because of poor rotations i remember during the 2nd quarter there was a massive chunk of time where he was just on the bench trying to get on but couldnt because of no stoppages. also a little unlucky with clark he seemed to get scaled down a lot during the 3rd which was weird but still a good move overall you'll happily take a 90+ over a donut. i copped the hurn out as well but luckily had quaynor as cover. annoying thing is i picked hurn over whitfield last week cause i was scared of him getting reinjured first game back and now hurn is out and to top things off after trying to calculate it i think ill be about 5k short off going logue to whitfield in 1 trade so will most likely need a 2nd downgrade most likely whitfield to fund this

      Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 18:09

      Good call in the end John, I recommended you get Birchall instead, lucky you didn't listen to me, in hindsight, better to go with a young up and comer than a battered old warhorse., hope he tons up for you.
      Looks like he's a good player when given a chance in the mids by the new coach.

        JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2019 at 18:27

        It was a hard decision to make Russty since it was my last trade, if I'd had more trades I wouldn't have hesitated, looks like I'll only be making one or two finals, so not much to lose in the scheme of things.

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 18:01

    I’ve had a solid week few spud scores from premos but overall pretty happy

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 19:18

    Yeah Russty. Plenty of turds in my side as well. Sicily, Stewart, Gray, and Tim Kelly just to name a few. But fortunately no injuries this week. Thank fark after that Cogs debacle last week.

SamuraiPizzaCat · 21/07/2019 at 15:32

Yep pretty much, and my opponent has alternate players who are performing better of course.

M Crouch (90) vs B Crouch (129)
Laird (70) vs Houli (111)
Cripps (73) vs Treloar (116)
Neale (98) vs Zorko (106)
Heeney (85) vs Mundy (104)

and now Hurn a late out..l I have no cover. Bad week!

Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 15:56

Just got home to see Hurn a late out. Thankfully I had the E on Answerth. Anyone know what happened to him?

    hedski · 21/07/2019 at 16:03

    Calf Holty, hopefully precautionary.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 16:22

    Calf complaint they said mate, who knows how long that could last.

      JEL · 21/07/2019 at 17:36

      Super, that's what the Crows said and Lynch was out for weeks.
      Hope Hurn isn't the same.

Pranav · 21/07/2019 at 17:56

Can’t remember who mentioned him but hunter Clark is on 70 at half time

    JohnDJ59 · 21/07/2019 at 18:07

    I did and I traded him in this weekend.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 18:09

    Think it was John DJ contemplating him Pranav.

      Funkhouser · 21/07/2019 at 18:17

      I did the same but brought him in for Hurn due to lack of choice to avoid a donut

Rick Grimes · 21/07/2019 at 18:34

How good is Dunkley. I presume he'll be mid only next year. Would you pick him ahead of Macrae.

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 18:36

    Agree Rick! Bloke is a star playing a very friendly sc game will be slotting him into my mids next year

    Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 18:42

    I’ll pick both.

      Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 19:23

      The question is how many can you fit in next year haha
      Cripps, Neale, titch, Fyfe, dunkman, macrae, Josh kelly will all look to average 120 odd one of them will burn the hell out of us can’t get em all unfortunately

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/07/2019 at 21:27

    1 of the 7.

      Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 22:18

      Throw Dangerfield in the mix also I can’t imagine he gets DPP next season.

Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 18:47

As of 2 weeks ago I shut up shop for overall due to many injuries and some bad trades and decided to hold trades for the finals in some cash leagues. Still have Hurn, Fyfe and Kelly. Think I may have gone a bit overboard with holding trades. 🤔

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 18:57

    Mate, no shame in that, you've had a phenomenal year, even if you finish anywhere in the top 500, that's still a great achievement, now you can focus on winning all your leagues.
    Bragging rights are still valuable 😉

      Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 19:11

      Hopefully I can challenge in our A Graders league. Some good opposition there. Certainly bragging rights up for grabs. My goal will be still to finish in the top 100. I should come home strong with trades in hand. Many years ago I finished in the top 10 in real dream team. Was never in the top 10 until the last round. It was like everyone ran out of trades and I used my last 3 in the last 2 rounds.

        Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 19:15

        I think that's the ultimate goal Holt…to have power at the end, without trades in finals, we're powerless and anyone with trades can overtake us and bury us..something I have to work on next year, just got carried away with trading this year.

    Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 19:21

    I guess time will tell holty nothing wrong with going conservative and playing for leagues! If I were you I would of gone for it though haha! Hell im no chance at rank 550 odd right now but I’m still going for it!

    Daz · 21/07/2019 at 19:36

    I’ve wanted to trade in Marshall so bad but keeping 4 trades for finals in cash leagues rather than try press up the ranks more. Seeya in the A-Graders finals holty!

      neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 19:52

      just checked that out Daz . i am 9th by %.and so is Derek in 10th. Hard to win against all you blokes

        Swans2012 · 21/07/2019 at 20:13

        I’m bloody 11th in agraders damit, been clawing my way up but don’t think I’ll quite get there. Slow start has hurt

        Daz · 21/07/2019 at 20:36

        Just looked at that league, technically with big win next week NDD you could jump as high as third technically! Very tight!

          neil demons delight · 22/07/2019 at 12:49

          It's actually my league and I haven't ever gone well 6 th is best ,but that's what leagues are about . All the guys are beasts and make it tough to win It's great to check out past winners . Shake runs CAZALY the same and that's tough Even playing swans at 11th is hard to win Good Luck all NDD

      Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 20:37

      U2 mate. You certainly are the 1 to beat right now.

    JohnDJ59 · 22/07/2019 at 14:14

    Holding trades is a good idea Holty if you are still getting good scores, I don't think those three were worth trading out.

Rocksta_ · 21/07/2019 at 18:56

Scores all over the place this week with so many underperforming Premo’s. I’m going to score around 2315. How’s everyone else going?

    Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 18:58

    I think around the same mate with Kelly, Fyfe and Hurn on the bench.😫

      Rocksta_ · 21/07/2019 at 19:02

      Good effort Holty with those 3 out. I’m only carrying Fyfe, but a lot of my Premo’s have underperformed this week.

        Browncow · 21/07/2019 at 19:34

        2414. A bunch above 120 or less than 80. Strange round.

        Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 19:12

        About 2350 for me rocksta

    TOPHAWK1 · 21/07/2019 at 19:24

    Billings saved my bacon today. That was one timely tonne by one of the most hated SC players. LOL I still cant believe I started with him after what he did to me last year. Despite the Sicily, Stewart, and T Kelly turds today hoping to hit 2350.

      Brn · 21/07/2019 at 19:33

      Oh wow i thought my 2380 was bad but its looking pretty good. Thanks to grundy c I guess

    Maverick_ · 21/07/2019 at 19:39

    I scored 2467…
    Fyfe and hurn on the bench hurt
    Hopefully climb a few rankings i won 10/10 leagues so hoping thats a fairly competitive score?

    neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 19:43

      Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 20:09

      Hahah same score has me NDD

Sam_01 · 21/07/2019 at 19:29

Gee I knew Marshall would go well but was hoping more a 120
Picked Zorko ahead of him for a pod option to replace josh kelly
Hopefully big Maxy absolutely trashes Marshall next week

St Kilda players should be massively fined, how can they do this, cost poor Richo his job, they should be very very ashamed of themselves.

neil demons delight · 21/07/2019 at 19:40

Holty just got me by 7 in Lek and Patches damm

    Holty01 · 21/07/2019 at 20:27

    I was very lucky Neil. Took the punt this week and held a trade. Ending up winning all my league matches so worked out ok.

      neil demons delight · 22/07/2019 at 12:39

      We have similar teams so I couldn't catch those 7 pts up

Pranav · 21/07/2019 at 19:45

Just lost a league game by 1 point after scaling. Only needed bont to outscore Daniel by 4 for the win and I’m pretty sure he had it pre scaling. Worst part is I played bewley instead of taking Clarke E score for Fyfe assuming the bont would be a late out. Logic was I’ll take a 20-30 point loss on Clarke to avoid a potential bont donut

Does Macrae ever play a bad game?

GoDogstilyougoScott · 21/07/2019 at 20:07

Chris Scott resign now before you take us down that predictable path from previous seasons leading in and during the finals.You are a selfish arrogant prick that will not take responsibility for the final outcome.

    Russty_ · 21/07/2019 at 21:00

    Sounds like some furious Samuel Mutha fkn Jackson type anger there mate via Pulp fiction dialogue.
    Anyways, Geelong are doing ok this year aren't they?….I barrack for the Saints…if anyone has a right to be angry…it's me.
    At least your blokes are winning…..for sheeshes sake lol

Iamme · 21/07/2019 at 21:25

2298 with 10 scores under 80 as well as Fyfe and Hurn on the pine

TBone_9 · 21/07/2019 at 23:00

Ended up finishing with 2273 this week. After a failed Cripps VC decided to ride it out on Danger cap. Quite a few underwhelming scores this week, 4 trades in the bank and 17k to play with. It’s gonna be tough to not rage trade an underperforming Sicily/M. Crouch or Westhoff to someone else haha

    JohnDJ59 · 22/07/2019 at 14:09

    Not a bad score considering the VC and C selections, I made the same mistake, took the VC of Grundy for some strange reason, then even worse, didn't put the C on him. Ended up with 2,221, used my last trade, won only one league game, I've gone from being in the top 8 in 7/9 leagues after the bye rounds to only 3/9 and I'll probably only make one finals. Pays to start slow, save your trades and come home strong after the byes. Having said that, it's all about timing as well, ended up 9th a few times and had to watch the top 8 teams get lower scores than me during the finals. Glad I stayed away from Sicily and Hoff, M.Crouch I've had from the start, not next year though, there will be a lot of midfielders ahead of him to pick from for our starting 5 premos.
