I’ve got a confession to make, community. I, and I cannot stress this enough, WAS, a Coldplay fan. I know, I know. We were all young and stupid once. My admittance of shame has a point, this weekend the lyrics of The Scientist floated into my head. 

Nobody said it was easy / No one over said it would be this hard ♪

Can we just have ONE week where there isn’t an injury or late out to relevant premium? In my haste to have a full team of premiums, I elected not to worry about things like “extra trades” and “reliable bench cover”. Help me, SuperCoach Gods!

So while I’ve been mentally preparing myself for whatever balderdash the Gods will throw at me this week, Damo joined the boys in a #Winner’sPodcast where they all just dumped on Adelaide for a bit (and some other stuff too). Barron is halfway through his 2020 rookie preview having looked into the lists of Geelong, Gold Coast, and GWS this week. The days of the perma cap are alive and well, but is there another option besides Brodie Grundy? Get the lowdown with Damo here. Any trades you’re making at this stage have to be bang on, get Statty’s best choices in this weeks cheat sheet

The News

No room for Josh Caddy tonight as the Tigers are taking in an unchanged lineup for the first time this year (?? maybe ??)  James Aish is one of four outs for the Pies. Matt Scharenberg returns as well as small forward Jamie Elliot.

Grant Birchall is back for the Hawks in their only change, replacing the injured Jarman Impey. Brisbane have recalled Josh Walker for the suspended Harris Andrews. The Blues have conceded the ruck dual against Reilly O’Brien by “managing” Matthew Kruezer. Patrick Wilson (MID – 147k) will play his first game for the year and second for the club. Tyson Stengle (FWD – 123.9k) is back after kicking 3 in his club debut. Hugh Greenwood and Eddie Betts have both been omitted. Will Schofield will replace the omitted Tom Cole at the Eagles, but still no Shannon Hurn as he becomes the latest old man to fall to the dreaded calf injury. LDU and Paul Ahern have been recalled by the ‘Roos. Charlie Dixon is dead again despite Port listing him as ‘omitted’ Paddy Ryder returns as well as my defensive cover for Hurn in the form of Joel GarnerJake Stein didn’t last long at the Giants, but Jackson Hately returns as well as Phil Davis. Matt Parker has been dropped by the Saints for Ben Long. Steven May has sent shockwaves through the comp by being injured again. Big Preussy is also a casualty.  

On Sunday, Rhylee West’s (117.3k) debut is confirmed and the R3 for 12% of teams, Jordan Sweet (RUC – 102.4k) is on the extended bench. Remember Will Hayes? Me neither, but he’s also on that extended bench. Dale Morris could also make his return. Josh Schache and Matt Suckling are the only confirmed outs so far. All you need to know about Freo’s changes is that Nat Fyfe is BACK #FyfeisLyfe. The Swans have added 5 new names with Will Hayward the only confirmed out so far. Geelong are managing Zach Tuohy and Gary Rohan for the trip, Scooter Selwood has been named for what could be his first game this year. For the final game of the round, Jez McLennan (DEF – 117.3k) has been named by the Suns and could debut. Lachie Weller and Anthony Miles have also been named. Will Brodie is their only confirmed out. Zac Clarke has been named for the Bombers in a sign they’re not taking this fixture seriously at all. Conor McKenna is off for his brothers wedding and Dyson Heppell will miss with injury,  

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

It’s luxury trade season! (if you’ve already completed your side, or just want to rage trade that prick James Sicily). I feel like I’ve already used 7 trades this year on trading Lachie Whitfield in and out of my side. His two games after returning from injury have been 101 and 119SC and is easily a top 6 defender. Currently 521k (his cheapest price for the year) and helping himself to a larger portion of the GWS pie that is missing midfield guns Gonigliog and Josh Kelly, GWS have a friendly fun home with a clash against Gold Coast for the SuperCoach grand final.

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

Cast your mind back to round 2 and the Draftstars contest between Richmond and Collingwood was pretty brutal for the Tigers. Amazingly, 17 Collingwood players scored higher than Richmond’s leading scorer in a ‘keepings off’ style of gameplay.

The media narrative has the Tigers taking this comfortably, but the Pies have had the wood over the Tigers since the 2018 prelim. Bucks will be using this as motivation for his side have been a bit out form in recent times.

RUC

As always with Collingwood games, it’s Brodie Grundy (17.5k) or not. There’s not a lot of value on this slate, especially in the mids where there is only one player under 11k. I’ll never talk you off Grundy, but you’ll need to take a lot of risks elsewhere to fit him in. Ivan Soldo (9.6k) is the more budget friendly option. He has hit 8x value in two of his past three. Then there is the enigma wrapped in a riddle that is Mason Cox (FWD / 7.6k). He’s been largely out of form this year but he transforms into a competent centre half when he plays Richmond. A 3 game average of 83 would be a 11x value game from the American. If you believe in past history as a guide, lock him in (if it’s wet tonight, avoid!)

DEF

Collingwood are leading the comp in points conceded to top 1 defenders these past 5 weeks. Before I get into options though, let’s discuss Chris Mayne. He’s been used as a lock down forward recently, with jobs against Hurn (17 disposals / 77DS) and Haynes (13 disposals / 60DS). Bachar Houli (13.8k) will probably be the one that draws attention. His record at the ‘G so far this year is outstanding, averaging 112DS. Jack Crisp (14.2k) is another on a hot streak, having not scored below 101DS in 5 weeks.

At the bottom of the list, Isaac Quaynor (7.6k) is a solid value play and Jeremy Howe (8.8k) is priced way too cheap. If the Pies play their keepings off style again Howe will see plenty of marks. Matt Scharenberg (9.5k) returns tonight and will probably step into the Aish role. I’m a fan of Shaz, but he’s priced just about right for mine. I’d rather wait and see how he goes.  

FWD

I may be a little tinsy bit bias, but Tom Lynch (9.6k) looks OMINOUS. Jezza kicked 6 last week on Collingwood’s defence and Jack Darling 3 the week before. Lynch hit an even 100 last week for the first time this year and is primed to do so again. Shai Bolton (10.7k) is excelling in an increased midfield role, with the Tigers unchanged tonight I see no reason why this won’t continue. Jordan de Goey (11.2k) has also seen increased midfield time, but his ceiling doesn’t look quite as attractive as Bolton’s. Similar to Howe, if Brody Mihocek (DEF / 10.5k) gets his marking game on (he took 12 in this fixture earlier in the year), he’ll smash through value. 

MID

Chris Mayne (8.5k) is the only cheat midfielder tonight. However his tagging duties have bombed his scoring. He’s pricy, but Adam Treloar (15.6k) is still the best Draftstars option in Collingwood’s top 4. Taylor Adams (14.3k) returned last week and punched out a handy 111Ds in an 8 goal loss. For the Tigers, Dion Prestia (14k) has been the form midfielder over the past two months for the Tigers. He has dropped below 100DS twice in that time, but he lacks the ceiling of Adams or Treloar if you’re paying up. Jack Graham (11.3k) has rediscovered his tackling floor, averaging 8.4 in his his past 5. Good luck!

Been waiting all morning for this Kev 😍

My team is as follows:
6 trades 165k

DEF: Lloyd Williams Hurn* Sicily Ryan BSmith (Burgess naish)

MID: macrae Neale Fyfe Cripps treloar Oliver Sloane crouch (clarke bey KDunkley)

RUCK: Gawn ROB (bines)

FWD: danger Marshall Dunkley TKelly Heeney Cameron (setterfield gardner)

Hurn obviously out.. let’s hope Burgess makes the cut tonight! I have 3 options below but feel free too throw new ideas my way always enjoy your input 🙂 I’m locked into finals comfortably in 8/10 leagues top 4 in most.

Option 1:
Hurn -> houli/crisp
ROB -> Grundy
Will miss Whitfield all together probably but no Burgess onfield, 4 trades remain $0 bank

Option 2:
Setterfield -> hill
ROB -> grundy
Burgess will be D7 BUT allows me to get Whitfield next week if Hurn misses again. 4 trades 180k bank!!

Option 3:
Setterfield -> hill
Hurn -> Whitfield
Miss ROB too grundy but will be next weeks trade
4 trades 368k bank!!

    TelescopicCox · 26/07/2019 at 12:52

    I like Option 2 Mav. I think Grundy will be a must have over finals, and hoping Burgess can cover you this week

      Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 13:10

      Thanks telescopic for the reply. Let’s hope Burgess is named tonight 🤞🏼

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2019 at 12:55

    Option 2 for me Mav. Get Grundy in today and whack the VC straight on his nose. Grundy will go close to winning the Brownlow this year. He is a must have. Good luck mate. TH

      Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 13:09

      Cheers TH, I think 2 is my preferred but Burgess is still on an extended bench. Fingers crossed he’s named tonight. Grundy May do some nasty nasty things too soldo in front of a packed out G tonight I feel for soldo.

    SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2019 at 13:06

    Sorry, Mav! I'll chuck option 1 into the ring. It's possible West Coast mothball Hurn until he's 110%. They're pretty safe in the top 4 and calf injuries are nothing to mess around with, especially when you're 31. Whitfield has a 90-ish b.e and the rest of your team looks in good shape. You could luxury trade Sicily, Ryan, Smith to him next week.

      Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 13:29

      Thanks for the reply Kev.
      The only thing that puts me off 1. Is the $0 bank after my two trades this week but option 1 does get me points on field getting houli/crisp especially if burgess is not named.. It’d take another 2 trades next week to fund the luxury trade.

        SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2019 at 16:59

        That's fair. Trades now are just plugging holes for mine. Not interested in up/downgrading

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:28

    BURGESS IS NAMED!!!

    and in option 2 burgess will be D6 not D7 sorry

TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2019 at 12:52

Great write up Kev! No trades for TH this week. Got all the rooks playing except for Gardner and Bines and all premos named. Touch wood. Good to see ya back Fyfe!! Good luck to everyone this round!💪👊

    SC_Kev7 · 26/07/2019 at 13:08

    Cheers, Hawk. Same, no trades this week (yet…). Hurn will be on my mind all day!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 15:35

    Will see how the Q man goes tonight with the E on him

    If fails will finish off my defence this week

    Thanks logue but time to go pal.

TelescopicCox · 26/07/2019 at 13:21

My team is a bit stuck ATM. 3 trades left & $160K bank. Pushing for a top 10K finish (currently 12K)

Any tips community:

B – Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Crisp, Sicily, Andrews* (Logue, Naish)
M – Macrae, Fyfe, Cripps, Treloar, Neale, M.Crouch, Danger, Heeney (Clarke, Hateley, Bewely)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Bines)
F – Dunkley, Boak, Lycett, Kelly, J.Cameron, Chol (Young, Gardner)

I will loop Chol tonight and see if it's worth taking his F6 score.

1. Logue > B.Smith.
Keeps Andrews as a loop D7

2. Andrews > Ryan or Howe
Look to upgrade Chol to a premo MID for the run home in the coming weeks

3. If Chol goes less than 50:
Andrews > Taranto
Play Logue at D6 and upgrade him next week

    TelescopicCox · 26/07/2019 at 13:45

    Think I've figured it out!

    This week, Andrews & R.Young to Z.Merrett & Hill.
    Next week. D.Clarke to a premo DEF around the 400K mark

    Leaves me with "full premo" and cover on every line per below:

    B – Logue
    M – Hill, Hateley, Bewley
    F – Chol

    Thoughts? It is less than ideal but I think using DPP's and keeping cover is the best I can do

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 15:07

      Not bad.. took me a while thinking through your DPPs but I guess it all works.

      Young > Hill
      Andrews > Merrett (Gardner to DEF, Heeney to FWD)

      Next week,
      D Clarke (MID) > 400k DEF (Hill to MID, Gardner to FWD)

        TelescopicCox · 26/07/2019 at 15:53

        Yep that’s how I got there. It’s not ideal but I feel it’s the best I can do.

        I want Taranto but that 20k saving on Merrett could be big for that last defender

TBone_9 · 26/07/2019 at 13:42

I know it’s probably a silly question but is it worth trading Parker down to Hill (would have a bench mid/fwd swingset) if I already have Clarkeand Bewley on mid bench and Chol on fwd bench? 4 trades left and full premo. Guess it comes down to how much a single trade could be worth this time of year

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 14:10

    3 trades and a solid bank would be enough to get you through finals if you made the trade. How much $$ you got before this move though? If you have plenty of cash already hold off but if you have $0 make the move get some cash in for future luxuries/injuries

      TBone_9 · 26/07/2019 at 16:51

      Gday Mav, only got 17k in the bank for now. It feels good doing the downgrade to make money, but with Hurn out this week it would mean I need to bench him and play Answerth. It wouldn’t feel right going into finals with 2 trades left and Westhoff still in my team haha

    KeenButClueless · 26/07/2019 at 14:18

    If you are full premo with 4 trades, that would be a big advantage compared to full premo with no trades. In the event that one of your premo’s is out, those with no trades would have to use their bench. You might be able to trade instead. I think it would be better to save your trades for injuries, rather than using for bench cover

      TBone_9 · 26/07/2019 at 16:53

      I reckon you might be right there Clueless. Trades in the bank is a huge upper hand on those with no trades but really good bench cover. Would rather have an underperforming premo on field rather than a bench rookie come finals time

    Stupid Coach · 26/07/2019 at 16:30

    I agree with Maverick. I have a similar dilemma and looking to offload one bench mid/fwd swing set (Settlefield) with another bench mid/fwd swing set in Hill. I currently have five trades left and not a full premo, however, I am only thinking about it as I only have 60k in the bank which is not enough to do a straight upgrade.

      TBone_9 · 26/07/2019 at 16:56

      Gday Coach, that sounds like a really solid plan to me mate. Big difference if you can go one up one down this week to get to full premo. Going to 3 trades feels fine, but getting to 2 or less makes me feel itchy. Who are you looking to upgrade with the Setterfield money mate?

        Stupid Coach · 26/07/2019 at 17:37

        Nah, I was actually thinking of downgrading Settlefield to Hill this week as it is the only way to give me enough cash to upgrade someone in my forward line like Jarrod Cameron next week or Wilkie in my defence the following week. I would like to have downgraded Young or Gardener, however, they have hardly made any cash at all (or in Gardener's cash none whatsoever) so I think this is my only plan.

          TBone_9 · 27/07/2019 at 12:36

          Oh I get you now mate. Yeah I think that’s a good call, Wilkie has been going alright as a rookie but he’s also made more cash than J. Cameron so maybe if you can trade him up to a Whit/Houli/Salem that sounds good to me

LordDeb · 26/07/2019 at 14:16

Just used my last trade, wish me luck :/<img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/rzN/bg_FFFFFF/txt_DDDDDD/border_FFFFFF/flags_0/.png&quot; width="1"/>

    Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:32

    Reconsider?

    Be prepared to lose a grundy/fyfe type.

    It happens and it sucks

    Good luck

    hedski · 26/07/2019 at 19:53

    I will more than likely be joining you tomorrow LordDeb, may Gary have mercy on us.

      The Ranger · 26/07/2019 at 22:43

      Bloody hell Hedski! Have you ever made it to the end of a season without running out of trades?!
      I thought you were gonna hold ‘em this year?!

        Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 22:47

        These guys that post I've got 8 trades left and 500k in the bank, what should I do?…I just think, do whatever the hell you want to do mofo…lol
        No sympathy from me!

        hedski · 27/07/2019 at 09:42

        I tried Ranger, still have the one but I'm fighting for my spot in cash league this week so need to go all out, I have cover on each line, been decimated by injuries again this season.
        And no, no I've never made it to the last round with trades in hand.
        Maybe next year? Ha ha.

SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 14:53

Ok I have two problems I'm trying to address. a) Hurn out with no bench cover. b) Bring in last premo upgrade. 6 trades and $131k in the bank. My team is:

Lloyd, Williams, Hurn*, Laird, Sicily, Ryan (Naish, Gardner)
Macrae, Fyfe, Neale, Oliver, Cripps, M Crouch, Shiel, Dangerfield (D Clarke, Stocker, I Hill)
Grundy, Gawn (Z Clarke)
Dunkley, Marshall, Boak, Heeney, Kelly, Chol (Setterfield, Young)

Options..

1) Setterfield > Merrett (Danger back to fwd line)
Chol > Birchall (Gardner to fwd bench)
This would bring Birchall in as D7 cover. Danger moves back to fwds. Merrett comes in as final mid.
Downside no bench cover in fwd line this week. Birchall questionable cover.

2) Hurn > Whitfield
Gets Whitfield in to cover Hurn. But wouldn't be able to do mid upgrade until next week. Could also still consider bringing in Birchall or a rookie for D7 cover.

3) Hurn > Stewart
Setterfield > Merrett (Danger back to fwd line)
Would give me full premium on field this week. Downside is it's a slight downgrade in defence – Hurn and Whitfield top 2 & 3 defenders by avg points while Stewart is 7th. Plus no money and still no bench cover in defence.

Thoughts?

    TelescopicCox · 26/07/2019 at 15:56

    Tough one. Defs between option 1 & 3. Id lean to 3 just because I don’t trust Birchall’s body

      Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 16:09

      I was actually thinking definately between 2&3.
      I don't trust birchalls body he played 1 game and needed a week off that is worrying you cant spend 200k on a shakey D7.

      I like option 2.
      It doesn't use all ya $$ and you get whitfield whose a jet he may avg 120 here on out stewart may get you 90-95.
      You have the luxury of looping chol/setterfield this round too so that's handy I hope one can give you a worthy onfield score.

        Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:33

        Whitfield. Option 2

Joe T · 26/07/2019 at 16:11

Best 2 mids out of Treloar, Duncan, Parker, Sloane and Taranto?

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 16:16

    Jeez that is tough everyone will see it differently Joe there all pretty even.
    Treloar & duncan for me

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 16:48

      I like Treloar & Duncan best out of those options too. But all very close.

        Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:34

        Parker and toss a coin for sloane/treloar

Jon Doe · 26/07/2019 at 16:24

rank best to worst please stewart houli crisp

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 16:32

    Houli
    Crisp
    Stewart

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 16:54

    Stewart
    Houli
    Crisp

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:35

      Houli
      Stewart
      Crisp

      Stewart could go bang

Nuggety · 26/07/2019 at 17:31

Clutch decision time. Currently top 3.5k rank but playing for leagues and sitting top 4 pretty safely.. If I cull Clarke (Ess) i can trade Logue and finish my defence with Whitfield. If I muck around a bit with DPP I can cull Burgess and finish it with Laird.
Is Laird with Clarke at M9 better than Whitfield with Hill at M9?? 2 trades either way leaving me with 5 left afterwards. Wirherden will be D7 when Hurns back.. What are peoples thoughts?

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 17:55

    Clarke would be nice bench cover, but I think it's worth bringing in Whitfield. Laird averaging 96 this year, vs Whitfield 110.

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:36

      Need whitfield.

      Geez my defence of Stewart, Laird, and Sicily has been bad, but they are still up there with top defenders

        Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:39

        Hoping Stewart has a good one this week with Touhy out

          Nuggety · 26/07/2019 at 19:05

          Cheers guys, welcome Whitfield! (Again)

GreendaleFC · 26/07/2019 at 17:32

Finally full premo bringing in Oliver for Stack. Got 1 rookie for coverage in every line and 2 spare trades.

Also I was looking over my old trades and round 9 was a massive sliding doors moment for me. I was choosing between Hawkins and Marshall. Ended up going for Hawkins as I thought he was a bit safer. So far it's cost me about 450 points, and a difference in ranking from 4700 to 1500.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:02

    Ouch that trade must hurt Greendale, Hawkins has been reliable last few years too so it's weird this year how he's going, understand the pick, just unlucky cause Marshall's been unbelievable this year.

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:39

      I hesitantly picked up Marshall in round 11 because be was cheap. Didnt expect scores anywhere near this. Hasnt gone below 116 for me

Big G · 26/07/2019 at 17:50

Go early on Langlands?

Craig · 26/07/2019 at 18:09

Need help peoples. 3 trades left and 100k in the bank but still have ROB as my R2. Can straight swap to Gawn but tempted to hold 1 more week with Kruzer not playing. Is it worth the gamble to get that last bit of coin out of ROB? playing for leagues and safe to make finals either way.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:37

    ROB might not make as much as you think this week and Gawn could go up more too if he has a big one.
    This could be the week to do it, Phillips can still Ruck ok.

      Craig · 26/07/2019 at 19:37

      I actually have 117k so as long as I can still do the one trade to upgrade to Gawn I am happy. Want to keep those 3 trades as long as possible. It's just that worry if I have to use 2 I won't do the trade at all and I am stuck with ROB. I think I just have to bite the bullet now.but every cent counts this time of year.

        Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 19:46

        You can afford to wait a week then, and you're ok in your leagues, thought your money was a bit tighter.

    Brn · 26/07/2019 at 18:41

    If only his floor wasn't so low.

    Worth the gamble this week for sure. Could score more than gawn easy.

Ned_Starkers · 26/07/2019 at 18:32

5 trades left($75k bank) and confusion reigns… benches too stocked with playing rooks
Def: Answerth and Naish, with Logue still on field and Hurn out
Mid: Duursma, DClarke, Hately
Fwd: Burgess and Setterfield
League result doesn’t matter. What would you do? Only premo missing that I want is Whitfield but could wait til next week.

    JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2019 at 19:26

    That's good cover Ned, I'd hold your trades for now.

Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:42

Taylor Adams is out for anyone who might have him.

Holty01 · 26/07/2019 at 18:43

Good luck everyone for the weekend.

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:45

    you too Holty.
    Hopefully Burgess can make double figures for me this weekend as I'm holding hurn, plenty of luck needed there.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 18:50

    Same to you Holty!…and good luck with Burgess Mav, hope he gets more than 20 for ya lol

    neil demons delight · 26/07/2019 at 19:08

    yeah good luck all. Play you Russty in a crucial game

      Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 19:16

      Tight in the top 8 there Neil, except for Dazza who's smashing everyone..good luck mate.

      hedski · 26/07/2019 at 19:51

      Good luck in the draft elimination Neil

    hedski · 26/07/2019 at 19:51

    You too Holty 👍

Saritz · 26/07/2019 at 19:17

Hately or Clarke on the ground? I can’t believe I have every mid playing and can’t loop :/

I think I’m going to bad in Hately with his magoos form!??

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 19:44

    I'd go Clarke, but back your gut mate.

Glenn · 26/07/2019 at 19:17

Have 4 trades left and only D.Clarke left on the field to upgrade. Thoughts on downgrading ROB to a ruck rookie to allow me to have over 500k to play with for my final two trades?

    DavidC · 27/07/2019 at 09:41

    Yep, that's too much coin on the bench.

iLoveNMFC · 26/07/2019 at 19:42

Hurn to Laird, Crisp or Houli? Quick!

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 19:49

    Laird!

    Holty01 · 26/07/2019 at 19:50

    Think about it. If you still need to trade tomorrow then Laird it is.

    iLoveNMFC · 26/07/2019 at 19:52

    Ended up going Houli, all games left are at the G and much higher scoring potential than Laird.

Jon Doe · 26/07/2019 at 19:44

got a quick one
Chesterfield or Clarke to hill???
Clarke to hill gives me a mid fwd swing but 30k less in bank

    Jon Doe · 26/07/2019 at 19:45

    setterfield

Holty01 · 26/07/2019 at 19:55

Lol. Treloar is on 27 points after 2 min of the game with 1 kick for a goal. Wow

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:07

    Back to 17 now…?

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:14

      Yeah saw that and thought it was bull. Just show that a good start can work wonders for sc. Dont have dusty or treloar but think they are both robbed at this point

Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:22

Poor ole Pies have forgotten how to score in games, Cox up fwd ain't helping either.

    Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:37

    Cant believe i tipped pies.

    After the last few years i honestly hate lots of tigers supporters. Change my mind

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:39

      Grundy let down by his midfield. All the taps and no good rovers. Wow – i just insulted both teams tonight. People will love me

        Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:42

        Houli lots more ball and no skill. Eichmond just everywhere

      Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:40

      I'm a Saints man Brn…just noticed lately Pies really struggling to score.
      I think Tiger's GF was a one off aberration…lol

        Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:50

        Geez its good that u are here to chat to rusty. I might be sc addicted, but you are always here for a chat too

          Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:50

          Shame anout the draft team. Looks only minor hammy

            Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:55

            Good thing about draft mate, you can always pish em off next week haha

          Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:56

          Helps that this game is not really worth watching…lol, if it was close I'd be watching the game more.

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:58

    glad i didnt bring in crisp or houli this week burgess may outscore crisp at this rate lol

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:06

      Houli is not even good but he racking it up

Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:34

Cotchin faked injury for a few weeks off with kid.

Grundy will easily be looped

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:45

    Yeah possibly…wish I didn't bring him into my draft side this week.

    Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:45

    On second thoughts, grundy wont be getting his 'close game sc boost'. Might only wnd up with 120iah

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 20:52

      Grundy way short on around the ground touches, as are pies in general

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 20:51

    had grundy penciled in for 175+ I only bought him in tonight

    But he is a second half specialist.
    Go you good thing you

      Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:01

      Its funny when we find a 130-140 underwhelming from him.

        Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:02

        yeah very valid point Brn.
        He's not human is he he is something else but i think he will get 120 tonight.
        Can't get a whole lot to advantage and minimal influence around the ground .

          Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:11

          He breaks the supercoach algorithms imo. The scoring system works for everyone except him. What a gun

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 21:15

            150 in a canter

              Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:19

              it's unfortunate the brownlows a midfielders medal
              both gawn and grundy are two of the most influential players in the whole league let alone there own team and ruck position. it's a joke the umpires need to change the way the look at the game

                TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 21:23

                Be a good fight, might b close.

                Few having a good year…

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:41

    we need tigers to keep piling on goals because that's the only way grundy is scoring points, his hitouts. he will be lucky to go 120

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 21:07

Not sure why lynchy was just sitting there in draft as a free agent

But happy with adding him in and putting him on the ground this week

Lad looks sharp, fit and hungry just like the tiges.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:25

    Great pickup Trigs…looks like he's finally hitting his straps.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 21:31

      Mind you

      This from a man who traded parker to smith eh rust? 🥺

        Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:37

        Hehe still happy with Parker as one of my main mids bud, thanks for that !…Smith might've come good if he didn't injure himself.

Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:41

Grundy under 130 by the looks. What to do..

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 21:49

    102 at 3 quarter time, I think he'll get there?

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 26/07/2019 at 22:22

      Ok quiet last quarter. Will actually have to choose a captain this week 🙁

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:53

    I'm filthy i want 140 minumim.
    Watch ROB go 150 v phillips now and i shoulda went Hurn to whitfield instead of playing burgess :/
    Need a big 4th here from brodie.

    Maverick_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:55

    Tigers don't need a ruckman when brodie's tapping straight down there throat anyway, jesus.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 22:22

    Gotta cap someone else now.

Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:43

If anyone had dusty they qould be mad. 27 touches and two goals for 74 right now

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 21:48

    Sloppy sloppy!…looks like Jack Graham might be a good player in the future.

    Pranav · 26/07/2019 at 21:52

    Yeah I own him and feel a bit stiff he’s been amazing tonight imo. Weird thing is dusty is someone that I’m used to seeing get a bit of extra love from CD

    Dan · 26/07/2019 at 22:29

    Yeah, he was absolutely robbed. 38 touches, 2 goals, for 104.

Brn · 26/07/2019 at 21:50

Rip crisp owners

    Lazza · 27/07/2019 at 00:11

    😥

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 11:45

    He was useless last night. He has turned into a clanger boy. Close to being banished to the never again saloon.😡💩

Ja191 · 26/07/2019 at 22:06

How does Grundy have 15 more Sc points than dusty

    Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 22:23

    38 and 2 goals…his d/e must've been pig swill.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2019 at 22:31

      he does turn it over a bit does dust

      watching the game tonight he hacked it forward a few times just to be picked off by one of the many tiger defenders

Brn · 26/07/2019 at 22:32

Thoughts on oing gawn over Grundy?

    Saritz · 26/07/2019 at 22:34

    Definitely

Russty_ · 26/07/2019 at 22:38

Hey JohnDJ59, make sure you get Fyfe onfield mate and Oscar Baker with the E on him.

    JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2019 at 00:02

    No worries Russty, I was watching Dark on Netflix and didn't have to do anything with my team until tomorrow apart from having the VC on Grundy and Stack on field, thought I would wait to see if I needed to put Hurn on field as C before I completed my team, now I know I don't need to, I have put my team together as it should be.

Sam_01 · 26/07/2019 at 22:39

Grundy has failed us! Panic room intensifies
On a side note thanks treloar
Gawn/macrae/Neale/dunkman to get the armband now

Lazza · 27/07/2019 at 00:05

Those of us without Grundy now have two C options vs those with Grundy.
Beautiful…

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 11:55

    Thats good for you this week, but remember what carnage Grundy has caused non Grundy owners this season. This is a blue 🌚moon event for us Grundy owners! 😂 I am sure we will cope.

gvaa1 · 27/07/2019 at 03:35

i'm sticking with Grundy <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/Jkzv/bg_FFFFFF/txt_DEDEDE/border_FFFFFF/flags_0/&quot; width="1"/>

dontblushbaby · 27/07/2019 at 09:51

Hold or trade Hurn ? I was going to trade Duursma to Whitfield , only have Burgess as bench cover , have 6 trades and 520k , playing for cash leagues where I am top 3 in all of them ,

    Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 10:27

    If ya top 3 and have cover i'd hold hurn still go duursma too whitfield.
    Back hurn in to return next week hurn and whitfield looks alot stronger than whitfield and duursmsa.

      dontblushbaby · 27/07/2019 at 11:50

      Yep,they were my first thoughts , just hope Hurn comes back next week

        Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 12:43

        If he doesn’t do you still have a trade up ya sleeve to deal with that?

Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 10:52

Bought in grundy last night for ROB wacked the VC straight on him along with K.Dunkley onfield with the C on his head before the tiges and pies game had even started i was that bloody confident. So who is everyone now captaining?

Marshall going to match gawn?
Is Fyfe's elbow 100%?
Can JDunkley keep this purple patch going?
Danger, Macrae LLoyd?

    hedski · 27/07/2019 at 11:02

    My opponent doesn't have Dunks so I'm thinking of rolling the dice on him under the roof at Marvel Mav.

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 12:39

      Yeah unfortunately that’s who my opponents Captained hedski I am leaning toward danger he had his quiet week last game hopefully his ready to bounce back with a 140! Too many options at this time of yaer too many chances to get it wrong haha

    Sam_01 · 27/07/2019 at 11:09

    I think I’m just going to back in big Maxy Mav

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 12:36

      Yeah going up against Marshall makes me nervous sam I’ll be passing on Gawn this week

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 11:50

    Typical isn't it Mav. You trade in Grundy VC him, and he drops one of his lowest scores of the season. Enough to drive you insane. I think I have had Grundy VC for every game after The Melbourne game and he has been unbelievable. This week I am going Macrae as C. Marshall and Gawn up against each other makes me nervous.

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 12:40

      Yeah still take a 117 but I think rob will go 130+ against phillips. Coulda waited a week if that’s the case but ya just don’t know do you so much luck involved around supercoach with trades and injuries.

      I am leaning toward danger or Fyfe tophawk my opponent has dunks

    Blue · 27/07/2019 at 12:04

    Danger as a POD. Everyone else I'm playing has Gawn

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 12:41

      I like the danger pick I hope gawns not as safe as everyone thinks blue as he is most opponents C

John · 27/07/2019 at 11:23

Gawn or Fyfe for Captain? Leaning to Fyfe due to his previous games against the doggies. Other captaincy options include Macrae, Dunkley, Whitfield, Parker, Cripps, Danger or Lloyd. Any suggestions ?

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 11:42

    I am looking at going Macrae C after a rare Grundy VC miss. Macrae is due for a big game against Freo. Don't have Dunkley and Gawn and Marshall up against each other could negatively impact both their scores.

      John · 27/07/2019 at 12:20

      My gut is saying Fyfe, his record against the dogs great and his elbow doesn't seem to be too much of a worry. Macrae is also looking pretty good, his average at Marvel is 123.4 this year and that's pretty hard to go by. So will have to choose out of these two.

Blue · 27/07/2019 at 12:02

I have Gawn but I'm now thinking Danger.

TBone_9 · 27/07/2019 at 12:34

Only have a couple of hours to make a decision. Only have enough money to make one of these trades. Hurn to Whitfield or Westhoff to T. Greene. Have Answerth as defense cover on bench. Cheers boys

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 15:18

    Answerth's going pretty well TBone , could end up with a nice score, might help make the decision for ya.

      TBone_9 · 27/07/2019 at 17:50

      Yeah luckily I got to see Answerth score a beauty so will hold Hurn this week and burn 2 trades to get the guy I really wanted in this week. Westhoff and M. Parker out for Hill and C. Daniel. 2 trades left with 85k itb, BANG. Feeling happy about the decision. You doing any trades this weekend mate?

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:13

        I had to get rid of Andrews, well didn't really if i'd fielded Answerth instead of Duursma, but I got Smith in for Andrews…I thought you wanted Greene?

          TBone_9 · 27/07/2019 at 18:31

          That’s still alright though mate! Smith got a 90+ score yeah? Actually luckily I haven’t made the trade yet, it’s loaded up on the screen but forgot to press Accept. It basically came down to who I trust to be consistent for the rest of finals. If I bring in Toby its only burning 1 trade but leaves me with no money itb. Daniel burns 2 trades but leaves me a consistent scorer with 85k. I still have 45 mins to reconsider haha

            Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:38

            From here mate, it's who can score you more week by week, cause unless you're top 4, any week could be your last, if I was choosing between an in form Toby and a rusty Daniel to score me more, I'd choose Toby.

              TBone_9 · 27/07/2019 at 19:11

              That’s a great point mate, when you put it like that it makes a lot of sense. I think it might be Toby time then. Cheers Russty

                Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:17

                Hope it works out for ya mate.

BradleyTC99 · 27/07/2019 at 12:40

Is trading Hurn the smart thing to do or hold? Got Logue as cover. Playing for both leagues and rank. Trading him would mean i'd only be left with 3 trades with one upgrade to go (would need to pain the fence if i keep Dylan Clarke or could just use the 1 by trading him).

If i traded him, id probably go Whitfield, but trades are so crucial. If i was sure it would be a week i'd hold, but hes getting long in the tooth and we dont know.

    Nuggety · 27/07/2019 at 15:01

    I did mate, in came Whitfield. I reckon it depends purely on how bad you wanna win this week..

Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 14:49

Putting the big C on Cripps looking the goods atm. Admittedly I put it on him due to Carlton bias but nice to see a strong start. Who’s everyone put the C on after Grundy sub 120 last night

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 14:56

    Probably be Gawn for me, should've put it on Answerth the way he's going so far…freakin yoyo

      Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 15:27

      Yeah I’m not watching the game but answerth seems to be killing it recently. Wish I traded logue out instead of answerth last week

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 15:43

        Take some solace in knowing that Cripps will probably deliver you a huge score this week Pranav

          Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 16:14

          Yeah can’t complain too much both logue and answerth were going just got the order wrong in terms of who to punt first and yeah cripps has played a blinder so far I’ve been lucky with my C recently

    neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 15:36

    Safest is Gawn was going gawn to dunkley wish i had NDD

      Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 16:14

      I really like dogs mids at marvel one of bont macrae or Dunkley could go nuclear

Jamie · 27/07/2019 at 16:19

Trade Ziebell to Walters??
2 trades left.
4 uniques this week and need to win to make the 8.

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 17:04

    I know it's too late now but don't think you need to be doing sideways trades with only 2 left, hold and wait for your next injury.

neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 16:49

Answerth is much better than a lot think. When he uses his great kicking skills to advantage he will become even better

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 17:06

    Still all over the shop with his scoring Neil, wish I'd had at least the E on him this week though.

    Jace · 27/07/2019 at 17:38

    I'm happy as he is my cover for hurn this week.

Sam_01 · 27/07/2019 at 16:54

Zorko the magnificent what a lovely POD you are

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 17:08

    Zorko the magnificent is almost as good as Luigi the unbelievable.

Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 16:56

Great win Blue Baggers

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 17:07

    Nice stuff from the Blues Holty, does Teague get the job or are they still looking for a big name big money Coach?

      Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 18:08

      I hope so. But who knows what the Carlton Board decides. They got rid of Ratten which was a huge mistake years ago.

        Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 18:32

        Would you want ratten back holly?

          Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 18:33

          Holty*

            Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 22:57

            Both right now would be good. They sacked Ratten when we were 1 kick away from a Prelim final. I’m actually surprised Ratten is even considering coming back to Carlton after how they treated him. But right now I think Teague deserves his chance.

              Pranav · 28/07/2019 at 00:42

              Yeah that west coast final was close and it wasn’t just that year many finals we lost in close circumstances, and considering how great a player he was for the club and the way we treated him im surprised he is even considering us but I’m sure if the saints are smart and they will lock him up as there coach. As much as I personally want ratten back I think Teague definitely deserves a chance

    neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 18:21

    Improved out of sight. next year look out . Ratten must be in there though –my choice

hedski · 27/07/2019 at 17:53

I'm thinking about fielding Dylan Clarke against the Suns and benching Angus tonight, he's been shitting me Angus, no doubt it will burn me but ah well.
Glad I got rid of Logue over Answorth, he did good covering Hurn.

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:30

    Hi Mate, don't think Angus will be used as a tagger tonight…Steele will probably tag Oliver and hopefully he breaks it.
    Angus could actually score ok against the Saints..just a thought.

      hedski · 27/07/2019 at 19:01

      Tipped the saints Russty, now I'm second guessing myself about An(g)us, ha ha.
      I'll let the beer decide in 20 minutes.

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:52

        Hopefully you left him off mate, he seems crap regardless of his role!

          hedski · 27/07/2019 at 20:12

          🤔yep

KeenButClueless · 27/07/2019 at 17:56

Michael – coach of Goat FC in the A Graders league – don’t forget to put the E on Gawn.

Lekdog · 27/07/2019 at 18:02

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 18:08

    Love it

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:17

    Good to see the Blues up and about..more hope for next year than my poxy Saints.

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:30

      I hope the blues keep climbing that ladder and adelaide get sweet FA for McGovern haha

    Pranav · 27/07/2019 at 18:31

    We’ve won the Liam stocker cup 💪

    Blue · 28/07/2019 at 00:19

    Awesome!!!!

The Ranger · 27/07/2019 at 18:20

Who do I drop to get Answerths score…Heater or Blakely?

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:46

    Reckon I'd back Heater in ..more experience.

      hedski · 27/07/2019 at 19:02

      And playing his 300th?

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:06

        Fo sho…hedonist 🙂

TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 18:28

Thinking of giving Gawn a crack as captain tonight. Am tossing up between Macrae or Gawnie. Anyone else running with the bearded beast tonight?

    neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 18:29

    is the pope a catholic of course TH

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 18:31

      Gawn is the man isnt he. He will smash Marshall at Marvel Stadium.

        Jon Doe · 27/07/2019 at 18:38

        will he though? marshall will match him round the ground and even win his share of tapouts

    hedski · 27/07/2019 at 19:07

    Dunks for me Toppa cos U don't have him!!
    (JR Mega League) 👍🍻

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 19:17

      Me trading out Duncs after round 4 this season was my major mistake for 2019. And the Martini Police are going to issue TH with a fine for the crime. LOL

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:20

        Don't forget Cripps mate 😉

        hedski · 27/07/2019 at 19:45

        I'll let you off with a caution this time but pull ya head in and wear a helmut from now on (just like Angus)

Jon Doe · 27/07/2019 at 18:37

can marshall stem the flow of points for gawn tonight can we trust the C on gawn? or better with macrae or fyfe

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 18:43

    Gawn 140 (280 C) and Marshall 110. Id take that. I have both these dudes. LOL

      Jon Doe · 27/07/2019 at 18:46

      marshall still very fresh last time they met in early rounds. alot more exposure to the AFL level now tophawk im scareed but i want gawn as captain lol

    Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:58

    hard to go against the big fella, Jon.
    You look at Gawns scores he has posted some BIG numbers are against great ruckman..
    Brodie grundy for example he went 150+ against.

    I expect tonights game to be close which means inflated scores for players like gawn who influence the game more than most

TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 18:38

Geez, a lot of coaches have been sucked in by Cunnington. He is inconsistent. Will never change. Period. Fools gold.

    Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 18:59

    I was almost one of those TH.
    thankfully i went sloane instead when he'd bottomed out in price he has been okay for me but has his average games.

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 19:07

      Sloane is definately superior to Cunnington. Poor bugger is just in a team which is playing scheit footy.

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:10

    Should change his name to Cunntington lol

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/07/2019 at 19:16

      LOL Or Runttington. Useless prick. Hehehe

        Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:18

        he coulda ben hunntington before he turned too shite lol

    neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 19:22

    duncington ?

Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:22

well bugger me setterfield scored 91!!! how did I only just notice lol
do i loop that and take it?
Normally I'd take jeremey straight off but im nervous after his 134 last week
heeney the other option.
Hard to turn down 91 pts in the bank

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:34

    I'd be tempted to take it mate….last 5 weeks before last week were a bit ordinary for him…could get 50.

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:38

      yeah i'm thinking that russty!
      Ill bench Cameron he will score 120 an heeney the 50 haha

        Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:41

        Heeney's actually due for a big one Mav…at the worst…85 or so.

          Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:42

          Camerons benched..
          im watching from behind the couch now

    Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 20:03

    I’ve made a big big mistake here. Cameron is looking veryy good

      Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 22:28

      Reckon Heeney will do better than his poxy 68 mate. 🙂

        Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 22:58

        Cameron on 74 at HT and finished the night on 68. What the hell happened?? I was too busy watching your boys get it done over the dees mate, Nice win.

neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 19:25

West Coast just starting to prove they are real contenders. Sheed Darling andJ J all coming good a la 2018. Still like the Pussies though NDD

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:34

    Eagles could easily sneak another GF in Neil, just like they did last time.

      Loop · 28/07/2019 at 06:11

      Sneak??? They were underrated all year. They're not playing as well this year, need Hurn, Duggan, Cripps and Vardy/Nic Nat back.

    hedski · 27/07/2019 at 19:46

    Meow

      Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 19:54

      Hawkins will need to pull the giant stick out of his ass if they're gonna win the GF 😉

        hedski · 27/07/2019 at 20:13

        And if I'm gonna make SC finals

      neil demons delight · 27/07/2019 at 20:45

      west coast and pussies for me but i still like the pussies

    Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 20:17

    Eagles Richmond final for me. The way Geelongs been playing since the byes they won’t even worry anyone. Still got a month to go though to change their form around.

Mark Fawcett · 27/07/2019 at 19:42

Very happy I held strong and took advice of others in holding Goldstein instead of trading "up to" Grundy this week:)

Sam_01 · 27/07/2019 at 20:40

Gawn only 8 points ahead of Marshall at HT when Gawn has an extra 10 hit outs and 5 marks and one tackle more makes 0 sense

Swans2012 · 27/07/2019 at 20:48

You’d think I’d be used to brayshaw laying dirty cables all over my team by now….but no it still hurts the same

    hedski · 27/07/2019 at 20:55

    Glad I benched the prick this week Swanny, Clarke vs Suns should beat Angus 22 points.

      Swans2012 · 27/07/2019 at 21:07

      It was a good call, I’ve got a full playing mid bench so unfortunately couldn’t loop setters 90odd. But I’ll fix that this week, bringing in a floating donut and upgrading Clarke at least that’s the plan (brayshaw to m9). But birchall has looked good as well hasn’t he…..

      Swans2012 · 27/07/2019 at 21:09

      But really if you were angus manager you’d be requesting a trade wouldn’t you, been played out of position all year, would be a jet at the swannies (future jpk replacement maybe)

        hedski · 27/07/2019 at 21:14

        Agreed, played out of place all year, he is an inside mid, I'd hold Clarke and trade Angus if I had that option though.

          Swans2012 · 27/07/2019 at 21:21

          Just feel like I’m past the point of trading him now, he did have that little patch at the start of the season and again in the middle that looked ok. And as I type this he seems to be appearing at center bounces. But none of this matters if he’s not scoring points lol. Surely after a shit season they start looking at what was working for them last year ie brayshaw inside

Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 22:09

are the dees tanking?
What is going on down there I would have thought they improved there squad after last season at worst stayed the same lost hogan picked up Kolodjashnij and may…
tank for a #2 pick and back too top 4 next year NDD?

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 22:49

    Maybe Goodwin's not the right man for the job, they should've kept Roosy

      Maverick_ · 27/07/2019 at 23:01

      Yeah who knows russty.
      Like why don’t they play brayshaw in the role that nearly won him a Brownlow. I reckon I could make a good coach 😉

      JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2019 at 13:47

      We would have liked to keep Roosy, but he made it clear that he was only going to be there for three years, to help us clean up the mess that Neeld left us with.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2019 at 13:38

    I think people are getting a bit carried away with the dees performance this year, last year we had one out of the box, where every thing went right until the preliminary final, but that was on the cards anyway, playing west cost on their home ground.The bulldogs did the same in 2016 but were able to win the GF, they haven't done much since. We've had five games this year that we have lost by 18pts or under, win those and we would be in the eight.The fact we have gone close to beating west cost twice this year, shows that apart from gold coast, there isn't much between the sides in the comp this year.

Sam_01 · 27/07/2019 at 22:28

Really confused about Gawns score vs Marshall
Gawn: HO=40 K=13 Hb=5 M=8 T=5 12CP at 83%
Marshall: HO=22 K=11 Hb=5 M=1 T=3 10CP at 88%
Gawn literally smashed him but scored what 8SC points more?

    Russty_ · 27/07/2019 at 22:47

    Marshall had 1 mark, Gawn had 8 and 3 contested marks..so yeah I see what you mean, only thing I can see it as is influence on the game at certain points which is decided by the muppets scoring it, if it was fantasy it's black and white but SC is always a freakin mystery.

    Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 22:53

    Thought Gawn was stiff but thought Marshall had a bigger impact in the game. How many hit outs to advantage did both have? Wouldn’t be at all surprised if Gawn scored 150+ if the Demons won.

Holty01 · 27/07/2019 at 23:00

Answerth and Setterfield, wow. U2 have allowed me to hold my trades this week. Thank you.

Blue · 28/07/2019 at 00:17

Stupid question
Are finals next week or the week after?

    Great fact hunt · 28/07/2019 at 07:58

    Next week blue good luck

      Blue · 28/07/2019 at 08:39

      Thanks
      You too

Stupid Coach · 28/07/2019 at 07:55

Do I take 133 from Gawn or stick with the C on Macrae agsinst the Dockers.

    Holty01 · 28/07/2019 at 08:19

    Unless you are in a must win league game and you are currently behind, you should always take 133 for a captain score

Blue · 28/07/2019 at 08:40

Gawn

Down to the wire · 28/07/2019 at 10:15

Hi there community really need your help on this one. I am in a down to the wire fight for fourth position in my money league. Projections have me losing by 30 points at this stage. Only unique players left to play Rampe and Fife for me and Dunkley and D Clarke for my opponent. We both currently have the C on McRae. My question is this. Do I leave things as they are and I hope that Fyfe and Rampy outscore my opponents by more than 30. Or do I change my captain to either Fife or Dangerfield. Could really use your help. And I only have a couple of hours to make my decision

    DavidC · 28/07/2019 at 11:35

    I'd back in Rampe and Fyfe against Dunkley and Clarke but it could be close if Dunks goes off again. Flipping your captain makes it a bit of a coin toss really. Danger might get tagged against Sydney so if you do swap the C I'd go Fyfe.

    Lazza · 28/07/2019 at 12:31

    What if you’re opponent is getting twitchy cos he’s relying on Clarke and switches C too!!! Go with what your gut on your best scoring option..

    Lazza · 28/07/2019 at 16:36

    Only down 14 now … Rampe vs Clarke .. or did you stuff it and make a move on your C ?

      Thx Dunks. · 28/07/2019 at 18:45

      I totally stuffed it….but so did my opponent. I waited until 2 mins b4 start of game and switched C to Fyfe. Given McRae smashed out a 150 odd it appeared my gamble had backfired. Just checked expecting to have gone down by 100 but instead saw that he had switched his C to Dunkley 1 min from the start. I am now about 98 up with only Clarke to play for my apponant. I may just pull this off !!’

Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 11:30

I reckon d Clarke will have a stinker has nobody good to tag, tackle and lead him to the pill might get away with just ramps and Fyfe will be close no matter what though

Daniel · 28/07/2019 at 12:33

Do I take the hoffs 89 or play Hawkins on field today, also who should I put the C on out of danger macrae bont jpk or Duncan, opponent took gawns 133

    Lazza · 28/07/2019 at 13:00

    Based on Hawkins scoring the season, you have a 50% chance of him beating 89… bird the hand…
    Re C .. probably Macrae… Danger doesn’t have a good average against the Swans in Syd.

    hedski · 28/07/2019 at 16:36

    Hope you kept Hawkins on field Daniel, 95 at half time!

Big G · 28/07/2019 at 13:12

Fyfe starting up forward.

    Defying_Madness · 28/07/2019 at 14:27

    Got him captain and my week was looking pretty good rip

hedski · 28/07/2019 at 14:38

Aaarrgh, why have a quiet game this week Dunks when I have you captain in a must win? FFS.

    Beezneez · 28/07/2019 at 15:00

    Me too Hedski. The stupid thing for me is my opponent TH has the c on Macrae and I could have/should have matched it. Still a quarter and a half to go so still some hope.

      hedski · 28/07/2019 at 15:13

      I'm also playing TH in a different league Beez, more worried about my cash league opponent who doesn't have him.
      Need a big last QTR just to crack the ton I reckon, 68 at 3 QTR time.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2019 at 15:29

    I left the C on Macrae. I am so glad I dont have Dunks! LOL

      hedski · 28/07/2019 at 15:53

      Ha ha, nice.
      That's my season done right there.

        neil demons delight · 28/07/2019 at 17:59

        might get you in the draft hedski

          hedski · 28/07/2019 at 18:44

          Yeah mate looks that way, I should have played Lipinski instead of Langford, I'm still alive in Finn's draft (or Gators, I get them mixed up)

          hedski · 28/07/2019 at 19:27

          Great last QTR from Langford, bad luck Neil.

Defying_Madness · 28/07/2019 at 15:07

Yikes Ryan done with a hammy

    Pranav · 28/07/2019 at 15:08

    How bad does it look? Done for the season?

    Holty01 · 28/07/2019 at 15:12

    Damn. I was looking at going 2500+ before that happened. 😫

Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 16:06

Looking like 2500+ this week for me 2027 with lloyd, Stewart, danger, Tim kelly, heeney to come
How we all tracking this week?

    The Ranger · 28/07/2019 at 16:29

    1951 with Hawkins, Danger, Kelly, Heeney and Lloyd to come.

      The Ranger · 28/07/2019 at 18:24

      Ended up with 2503 despite Witherdens 4

    Holty01 · 28/07/2019 at 16:39

    Was heading for the same until Ryan went down. Pretty much had all my league matches sewn up until this and now may lose 2 of them. I guess they are the breaks in this game.

      Shake_n_bake · 28/07/2019 at 19:12

      Think l might just get you Holty. In Singapore just checked. Hope you kick ass in the finals.

        Holty01 · 28/07/2019 at 19:33

        Nice shake. To good in the end. Might have been close if Ryan didn’t go down. Ended up with 2442 and amazingly lost 3 of my 6 league games.🤔

          Shake_n_bake · 28/07/2019 at 19:37

          Definitely, looks like he went down with an inj? Hope he gets back up for you come finals.

            Holty01 · 28/07/2019 at 19:57

            Doubtful. Hammy by all accounts. Now have Ryan, Hurn and Kelly to deal with. Trades are running out quickly.

    Lazza · 28/07/2019 at 17:22

    Jeez Sam, the way they are going you might be lucky to get 2 tons out of that lot … big last quarters needed… good luck.

    nickgonzalez771 · 28/07/2019 at 18:26

    Was in the exact same basket with the same players to come. Locked in a 2473 in the end. Underwhelming round from M Crouch, Stewart and Cunnington. Dunkley and Danger pretty average too.

      Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 18:36

      Made it over the line in the end fellas still relatively happy with 2501
      But a lot of under performers again

JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2019 at 16:23

Next week I will be playing it safe with my VC and C, no more mucking around, Gawn into Grundy should get it done.

Tommo09 · 28/07/2019 at 16:56

Will Luke Ryan need to be traded?

    Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 19:01

    I’d say so tommo! Wait and see how bad it is first I guess but it’s finals time now anyway

    Rocksta_ · 28/07/2019 at 19:17

    I only just brought him in this week as my last upgrade, but also with my last trade. Oh well, it really has been that sort of season for me. Just one injury after another.

JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2019 at 16:57

Stewart would have to be my worst trade in for the year.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 19:45

    I thought he would've gone better this week with Touhy out..he's been a bit average lately.

      JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2019 at 20:55

      Yes, the way he's been going I could have kept Answerth. I've had a few trades like that, where the upgrade doesn't really do any better than the player you upgraded.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/07/2019 at 17:41

Back ya Gut.

Was gonna go with setters 90 on the bench but stuck with big Tomma on deck. Thought he lifted last week and was due.<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😏" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f60f.svg"&gt;

    Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 18:44

    Feel like I saw a lot of posts about the hawk trig haha god you would be spewin if you benched him
    Well played mate

      Maverick_ · 28/07/2019 at 21:28

      Good move trig.
      I took setters 91 I benched Jeremy Cameron,
      Jezza was on 74 at HT I was fuming went on to finish the game on 68!! How does that happen haha

        Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 21:43

        It was meant to be mate! 🙂

          Big G · 28/07/2019 at 22:56

          Some serious question narks about cd scoring. I also find it weird when an injured player down for the day increases in score. My only guess is the points are scaled down due to points being less during less important times in the game.

            Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 23:25

            It's very suss Big G, when Cotchin went down I think he was on 29 or 30, ended up on 41 and didn't take the field again.
            Basically, they have to make up for all the points they missed when they were watching the game, a lot of the time when a game is nearing it's end you'll see groups of 4 or 5 points handed out to several of the lowest scorers in the team for nothing, and then it can happen again after the game's over and often does.
            Witts was docked 3 points after the game which made Neil lose his draft semifinal by one point this week.

TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2019 at 19:27

Looks like TH will end up around 2300. Not a great score with Crisp, Williams, Billings etc stinking it up……. If somebody told me this morning I was going to get 2300 I would have told them to head down to alcoholics anonymous. I decided to do nothing this round. No trades and C on Macrae. Sometimes doing nothing does wonders. How did everybody else go?

    Shake_n_bake · 28/07/2019 at 19:34

    2488 for me. Come back to oz after next weekend bring on the finals.

      TOPHAWK1 · 29/07/2019 at 13:13

      As always you are killing it Shake. Great score. I think we meet in a final next weekend but I could be wrong. Will need to use my remaining trades very wisely to have any chance. Good luck next week. TH

    Pranav · 28/07/2019 at 19:35

    well done with macrae C after majority would of VC grundy. 2464 for me annoyed with ryan injury will have to use a trade on him to houli most likely but very lucky this week after burgess heroic performance covering for hurn, with quaynor going sub 60 decided to take the risk and it certainly paid off

      TOPHAWK1 · 29/07/2019 at 13:19

      Nice work mate. Burgess I still have too. He is a real bonus. Cheers.?TH

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 19:44

    Hey bud, 2405 for me this week, made 8 out of 10 finals and the top 4 in 4 of them..so pretty happy to have so many chances.
    Sorry I knocked you out of Trigs happy place.

      Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 19:49

      2501 for me

        TOPHAWK1 · 29/07/2019 at 13:18

        Sensational score!!💥💥

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/07/2019 at 19:57

      All good Russty! Well played mate. I would have loved a gig next week in 8th pozzie but its not to be. Trigga's Happy place is a brilliant league and I appreciate you inviting me every year. I looked at every option this morning to see if I could pull off a miracle trade, but there was bugger all. Bring on finals! Until we meet again in my back yard, The mighty Guns and Rookies league! Cheers. TH

      TOPHAWK1 · 29/07/2019 at 13:17

      Very solid Russsty. Before the start of this round I was in the top 8 in 6/9 leagues. I have had to suck it up this week after this week's losses having slipped out of the 8 in 3 leagues. A few pricks really let me down this week and I wanted to save my last few trades for finals. Finals in 3/9 leagues is still decent as all of them are ranked 300 or better. Good luck next week mate. TH

Brn · 28/07/2019 at 19:32

Just got over 2500. Decent score?

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 19:45

    Pretty good this week for sure.

    Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 19:50

    Not bad I got 2501 I feel like it won’t be that massive at the top end tho Brn might move you up a couple tho, Hope I can sneak into the top 500

    Nifty · 28/07/2019 at 20:20

    Yeah great score mate, i finished on 2560.

neil demons delight · 28/07/2019 at 19:45

lost to Derek by 1 in the draft semi grrr hope theres more left congrats to hedski hawk got you there i will be cheering you on mate NDD

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 19:47

    I saw that mate, that is so unlucky!..I thought you had him but Merrett rallied at the end
    Witts got scaled down 3 points!

    Thanks Neil. Got smashed in SC classic today, but still managed a decent score with Macrae C, kept my trades, and my bench all did well. In Draft I am punching above my weight, but I believe in selecting forwards and defenders with the early picks. Midfielders are a dime a dozen. Cheers Neil. TH

      Hi TH. I was going to change the c from Dunkley to match your Macrae but inadvertently missed the start time. Extra 76 points would have got me to 2495. Kicking myself.

        Beezneez · 29/07/2019 at 11:28

        Make that 65 points for 2484.

          TOPHAWK1 · 29/07/2019 at 13:22

          Still a very nice score mate. But it's so bloody frustrating I know. Dunkley shat on many coaches this week. Putting the C on Macrae saved me from serious ambarrassment. Had I moved it to Zerrett which is what I was contemplating, I would have been screwed. Good luck in finals! We might meet. Have to check. Cheers. TH

    Cheers Neil, going ok for my first draft year.

      neil demons delight · 28/07/2019 at 22:00

      Did you grab Tich very early I accidently dropped him

        hedski · 29/07/2019 at 09:18

        Got him in both my leagues, first one accidentally, second one I picked him up late, will be a nice in as one of my 3 keepers for next year, also have Grundy and Gawn who I'll keep.

          neil demons delight · 29/07/2019 at 13:40

          At least you didn't get your hands on DOC but what a start for next year . Dion -the one to beat gives me something to aim for each time I play you. and your cats are still favourites good luck I think you play Russty in one gonna be tough who to cheer on maybe not Russty cause he follows Stkilda who beat us this week NDD on board the Hedski train

    Derek · 28/07/2019 at 23:21

    Thanks mate, i was very lucky. Picked up Jelwood a couple of weeks ago off the waiver and Old man Simpson rolled his sleeves down and went big.

    I’ll take a 1 point elimination final anyway I can.

      neil demons delight · 29/07/2019 at 13:33

      I seen that Derek thought long about him .wonder who dumped him ,he always finishes off well. Great year for you and best of luck . Talking about luck mine's gone lost your survivor by 6 when Moore and Cogs spudded then seen I would still be there now Great concept and well done for organising it .A real season highlight cheers NDD

Sam_01 · 28/07/2019 at 20:23

Ayyyy finally into the top 500
Sitting at 445 after my 2501

Daniel · 28/07/2019 at 20:24

A little bit disappointed that I took the hoff's 89 instead of playing hawkins on field, with my worst 3 players being Z.Williams (70), M.Crouch (77) and Jake Lloyd (88), luckily I picked the right captain in Macrae and ended up on 2521 and not only made finals but jumped up from 6th to 4th in my main league, hope everyone else had a decent week and made finals/top 4 🙂

hedski · 28/07/2019 at 20:26

2389 for me, the decision to captain Dunkley cost me the win in my work cash league, luckily a couple of other results went my way and I scraped into 8th spot by 0.3%!!!
I live to fight one more week.

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 21:33

    Haha same here mate…just kept my spot in one League by about the same margin 0.4 of a point lol
    All a bit of fun,good to make some finals, can't see myself winning any though..my team sucks LOL

neil demons delight · 28/07/2019 at 20:33

Going to have a go at the rugby supercoach next year but as a long suffering eels member living in Victoria, we dont get much info here .Anyone know a site where i can get the teams like fan footy or footywire cheers

    Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 21:45

    Not sure mate but Herald Sun does NRL as well.

      neil demons delight · 28/07/2019 at 22:05

      none in WA Russty League is not that popular in the southern states makes it hard that's why i play AFL good luck in the finals

        Russty_ · 28/07/2019 at 22:11

        Thanks mate you too, good to get there with a chance…soon we'll all be in Supercoach withdrawl symptoms! 🙂

    dontblushbaby · 28/07/2019 at 22:15

    I play NDD, I am a long term Manly Member ,it is a lot different to AFL:
    – After the last round the site doesn't up date until Monday PM
    – Teams are announced Tuesday PM however there is always late outs and ins over the round
    – If you have a Herald Sun Subscription then you can tap into the Telegraph – Tom Sangster is the best at giving advice for trades ect
    – The bench players scores do count which makes the Captains Loophole is a lot harder to do
    – There is heaps more mate

      neil demons delight · 29/07/2019 at 13:07

      The arch enemy sorry DBB but the sea eagles are the collingwood of NRL Having said that they are a great team I will cop flak but it's a better game nowadays AFL was better not now though I knew about Tom. Keep in touch if possible so I can set it up next year Great win by both our teams on the weekend. Manly must be a chance now we are just making up the numbers unfortunately. We need a cherry -evans Radrada would be good cheers best of luck in the A F L NDD
