We’ve made it! The promised land. SuperCoach finals start this week and in the wise words of Crouching One, “trade ass off”.

*not that type of promised land

At this point, bench cover is something you want in a case of emergency and/or Sunday being a big bag of phallus’ and pulling an unexpected late out on us. Looking at your team Friday night, you do not want to be relying on a rookie so you do your best to trade around it. If you’re in a qualifying final you can take it easy, but have a plan in place for when you’re in a knock out final. 

Things got a bit… Scottish on the podcast this week. Obviously I’ll be keeping Patch away from my retirement grease now and if he tries to tell me he’s from North Kilttown I’ll know he’s not from Scotland at all!. Baz chucked a sickie this week so look out for a bumper edition of his 2020 preview next week. Damo debuted a schmick looking Who’s Your Captain article (with graphs!) and Matty is a lock for rising star this year, he’s still belting out beautiful looking cheat sheets

The News

Let’s cut straight to the chase, community. Kenneth Hinkley has had a “senior moment” and DROPPED Scott Lycett. Not injured or sore. Dropped. At the risk of sounding too much like Tom Browne, there may be something more here. He could have accidentally ran over his dog, that is, if you replace “accidentally” with “repeatedly” and replace “dog” with “son”.   

Elsewhere, the carnage isn’t too bad. For tonight, North and Hawthorn have made three changes between them that don’t carry a lot of SuperCoach weight. Ben McEvoy will go head to head with Goldy after Jonathon Ceglar was dropped.

Orazio is back for the Dons and Conor McKenna returns from his Irish junket. Dyson Heppell unfortunately has a really bad case of the sniffles and will miss again. Dead Man Dixon has been resurrected and Peter Ladhams arrives on the bubble. Dougal Howard is among the outs. Brett Deledio and Jake Stein, who is another one the bubble, return for the Giants. The Swans have lost Dane Rampe to injury and omitted youngsters Ryley Stoddart and Colin O’Riordan. Kieran Jack is amongst the ins. Freo have made 5 changes to the side that was humbled by the Dogs last week. Luke Ryan, Lobb, and Nathan Wilson due to injury, while Brett Bewley and Ballas have been dropped. Jason Carter (DEF/MID – 102.4k) will make his debut. Rohan and Zach Tuohy return for the Cats after a week off. Adelaide’s ‘play the kids’ experiment has lasted a week. Richard Douglas, Eddie Betts, and Bryce Gibbs have been recalled. Stengle and Patrick Wilson are amongst those to make way. Matty Parker and Josh Battle are back in for the Saints, but Jack Newnes will miss with illness. Still no Nank for the Tigers who have made two forced changes. Sydney Stack and Trent Cotchin are out for Josh Caddy and Dan Butler. Braydon Preuss is back in with the Dees to add a wrinkle onto our Max Gawn VC lock. Kyle Dunkley will play his third game. 

On Sunday, the Pies are scraping the bottom of the barrel for fit players after losing Jordan de Goey and Isaac Quaynor to injury in the week. Taylor Adams is hopefully fit to return. John Noble could play his second game. Corey Ellis has again been dropped by the Suns, Caleb Graham (DEF/RUC – 117.3k) and Jez McLennan (DEF – 117.3k) could debut. No confirmed outs as yet by the Blues but there’s no Matthew Kruezer in the four names added to the squad. Shannon Hurn returns to the Eagles side. Bailey J Williams (FWD/RUC – 117.3k) has again been named and could debut. For the last game of the round, Brisbane haven’t made any changes yet but they’ve added Harris Andrews to the squad after his suspension. The Dogs will probably regain Matthew Suckling and Toby McLean for the match, while Jordan Sweet (102.4k) has again been named on an extended bench. 

The House of Evil

Downgrades galore this week! Trades are precious, but there’s merit in the idea of having coverage on each line.

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

Hinkley’s been let loose on the whiteboard and Scott Lycett’s magnet has felt his wrath. It has thrown a sizeable spanner in the works for owners this week. There’s no reports of an injury, so if you’re in a qualifying final perhaps just take the L and hope he’s back next week. If he’s in your forward line there’s plenty of options, but if he’s stuck in the ruck and you haven’t quite got the 66k to turn him into Gawn, Goldstein (75k), or Grundy (151k), things get a bit murkier. 

Reilly O’Brien (525.6k) has proven that he’s going to keep Sauce out of the side. Adelaide’s run home is also friendly, with only a matchup against Brodie Grundy a possible hurdle, but it’s Ben McEvoy (494k) that’s capturing my attention. With Jono Ceglar struggling to hold down a spot, Big Boy has seen a massive spike in ruck duties. Since round 16 he has attended 313 out of 372 ruck contests (84%), which has seen his average hitouts rise from 30.6 a game to 37.5 a game. You’ll get 53k from a Lycett trade, a nice amount that you can use to turn an iffy premium into someone more solid. 

Hey Now, You’re a Draftstar

RUC

Sometimes you’ve just gotta throw trends out the window and pick the guy in form, and Levi Casboult (DEF / 10.5k) is in the form of his life. Levi is stuffing his stat sheet, he’s reeled in 27 marks (21 uncontested), 34 hitouts, and 11 tackles over his past 3. Tom Hickey (FWD / 10.1k) is solo rucking on this slate for the Eagles. Although we haven’t seen a big slate breaking score from Tom for a while, Andrew Phillips’ four opponents this year read: 115 (Nankervis), 114 (Lycett), 99 (Goldstein), 114 (ROB). Phillips (10.5k) himself is also not a bad option, and with Levi (DEF) and Hickey (FWD) both DPP’s, a double ruck stack is in play (or even a triple if you’re absolutely mad!)

DEF

Keeping with our ignoring trends theme. Kade Simpson (11.3k) punched father time right in throat last week with 31 possessions (26 kicks) and 12 marks last week against the Crows. You’d be brave to take him on but that said, he scored a season high 131DS last year against the Eagles. Nic Newman (12.8k) is another option that has been revitalised under Teague and is probably the safer option. West Coast will go in heavy favourites for the clash and where there’s a trashing there’s junk time, and whenever there’s junk time you can be guaranteed* Chris Masten (MID / 9.1k) won’t be far away. 

*not a guarantee

FWD

Liam Jones is unfortunately out after a death in the family which leaves the Blues looking a bit short handed. I’ve been waiting for Oscar Allen (8.6k) to tear open a game this year, he’s every chance for it to happen against the Blues on Sunday. For only $300 more you can have JJK (8.9k), who roared back to life with 7 goals straight last week against North.   Jack Darling (11.5k) has form on his side. Ed Curnow (MID / 13.6k) has flourished without tagging duties and Will Setterfield (MID / 10.2k) is finally showing the talent we knew he had. With no score under 72 in his past 7 he seems pretty safe, but there’s also no score above 89.

MID

Josh Deluca’s (5.1k) price has risen moderately after a 11x value game last week. I don’t mind him if you’re looking to save cash to fit in the West Coast guns. Speaking of, Carlton give up the second most points to opposition number 1 midfielders this year (123.3DS) and 5th most (106.1DS) to the top 3. On the same metric, West Coast concede a competition low 111 to top 1 and 99.5 to top 3. 

If Curnow does tag, I believe he’ll go inside to a Yeo or Shuey, leaving Andrew Gaff (15.1k) to do his thing and Patrick Cripps (14.5k) was enormous last week against the Crows. With Teague giving huge midfield exposure at centre bounces to Cripps, Curnow, Murphy (13.3k), and Walsh (13.1k), selecting 2 or 3 Carlton mids is pretty safe despite West Coast conceding the least amount of points in the comp over the past 5, it’s just picking the right ones!

6 trades left. Keep Goldy or final get Gawn?

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 12:49

    Hey mate. Good problem to have! Goldy been smashing it so as weird as it sounds getting Gawn in isn't a must. Any other issues in your team?

    JugHead · 02/08/2019 at 13:06

    On current form, I'd stick with Goldy. his lowest score since the byes is 124. As Kev says, he is smashing it.
    And as for Max, there is a bit of chatter about his ankle not being 100%. The Dees have brought Preuss in and named him on the bench (not as an emergency). They did it for a reason.

BradleyTC99 · 02/08/2019 at 11:48

Hey guys, so i'm another one who has Luke Ryan. I'm pondering a few options this week.200k in the bank with 4 trades left

A bit of background is that my team is full premo, but i have Jezz Cameron and Hawkins F5/6, with Danger currently in my mids. Ideally, id like to get another mid in to push Hawk to the bench.

I could just go Ryan up to Whit, boring but Whitfield is a gun. Would leave me with 118k, which isn't enough to upgrade Clarke to anyone using only 1 trade. So i'd have to wait until at least supercoach prelims to paint the fence to make sure i didn't have injuries.

I could also do Ryan – Rich/Stewart, which would leave me with 490-500k to upgrade Clarke. Cunnington, Shiel, Dusty, Sidebum or Adams are options.

Lastly, i could go Ryan – Simmo, which would give me 536k to upgrade Clarke to one of Duncan, Gaff or Pendles

Which option looks the most appealing? ANy thoughts would be great guys!
EditDelete Report

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 12:55

    Hey mate, plenty of bubble boys this week. If you painted the fence with a bench rookie and turned Ryan into Whitfield, how you looking for cash next week to upgrade Clarke?

      BradleyTC99 · 02/08/2019 at 13:43

      hey Kev, If i downgraded Bewley – Langlands i've have 227k to upgrade Clarke either next week or the week after.

        SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 13:57

        Clarke has a b.e of 47 this week so you can probably chuck another 15-20k onto that. 550-560ish for a mid next week, there will be someone. Yeo maybe?

          BradleyTC99 · 02/08/2019 at 14:06

          Yeah plenty of options for 550k. Yeo, Pendles, Duncan and JPK are all good options!

Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 12:48

After Shake smashed me last week, I now have him again in our 1st final in our cash league. Hopefully I get some redemption this week.

    Shake_n_bake · 02/08/2019 at 13:57

    I’ll rely on a bit of luck! You have had a fantastic year always great to play you. What’s your plans this weekend? I leave singapore tomorrow going to be hard for me to know what’s happening in tomorrow’s games. Good luck Holty.

      Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 15:47

      U2 mate. Obviously Ryan has to go. Just need to decide who for. I have the 3 big guns in the backline so hard to workout who to get.🤔

      Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 15:49

      I have you in the hey ho league Shake projected scores VERY close not that it means alot at this time of the week but may be close! I still have Ryan to deal with, hmm. all the best though!

        Shake_n_bake · 02/08/2019 at 16:58

        All games are very even now Mav. To get the bye next week will be great. Wont see any footy tomorrow as I’ll be on a flight back home but hopefully no surprises! Good luck 🍀

TelescopicCox · 02/08/2019 at 12:51

1 trade left. Options below:

1. Trade Clarke to sub $400K defender at D6. Team completed
2. Hold. Play Logue at D6 & Chol at F6 for Lycett *raises middle finger to Ken Hinkley*.
Then wait for Clarke to gain a bit more for a better defender next week

    JugHead · 02/08/2019 at 13:28

    With one trade left, it would be definitely be option 2 for me.

    Blue · 02/08/2019 at 14:48

    hold

    The Ranger · 03/08/2019 at 11:35

    You should hold Cox

Blue · 02/08/2019 at 13:03

Which is a better luxury trade?
A.
Chol > Langlands
Robbie Gray > Marshall
B.
Westhoff > Langlands
Robbie Gray >Macrae

Stupid Coach · 02/08/2019 at 13:15

Greetings community. Thanks for another great write up Kev. 4 trades left, 267k in the bank and a double chance this week.

My current team is:
B: Lloyd, Laird, Stewart, Williams, Whitfield, Sicily, Wilkie, Joyce
M: Cripps, Bont, Merrett, Mcrae, Duncan, Sloane, Oliver, Neale, D Clarke, Bewley, I Hill
R: Gawn, Goldy, Sweet
F: Danger, Kelly, Heeney, Jeremy Cameron, Jarrod Cameron, Hanrahan, Young, Gardner

Looking to try and make only one trade and thinking that needs to be in the forward line with either Jarrod Cameron or Hanrahan to make way for one of Walters, Daniel, R Gray, Worpel or Lambert.

My other option would be to make two trades and bring in Langlands from the Saints who is on the bubble and finally get rid of Young so that I can have bench coverage and an additional mid/fwd swing.

Appreciate any advice as always community. Good luck to everyone this week.

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 14:19

    Definitely strengthen that forward line, SC. Reckon you should paint the fence this week with Cameron and Hanrahan. Langlands or even McLean (Swans) can be an F6, then upgrade the other to a top forward. Boak?

      Stupid Coach · 02/08/2019 at 17:48

      Thanks Kev for the great advice. I am a bit skeptical about making two trades, however, anything that helps me get over the line would mean that I get a week off and don't worry about having to trade next week. If I can't get Boak, is Worpel the next best option given that he is averaging 106 in his last three games.

Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 13:20

Saints' Parker is back in now after Newnes and Paton outs.

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 14:02

    Cheers, Russty. I missed the Saints all together haha. I'll fix that up

Shayna J · 02/08/2019 at 14:03

Have 5 trades left, Ryan to either Rich or Sicily or
Do a downgrade elsewhere and trade Ryan to Houli

    SC_Kev7 · 02/08/2019 at 14:08

    Hey Shayna. Plenty of trades in the bank so it might be worth getting cover this week on a line you don't have any. Then Ryan to Houli (or Whitfield if you don't have him)

      Shayna J · 02/08/2019 at 14:24

      Cheers, started with Whitfield 👌🏻

    Blue · 02/08/2019 at 14:47

    Houli

      Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:39

      Im not a fan of getting bench cover for the sake of it because it backfired on me last year. Without seeing your full team its hard to know your weakness, but there is almost always a good upgrade to be made

        Shayna J · 03/08/2019 at 08:11

        I don’t need bench cover, just can’t quite afford Houli with one trade. Would love to only use one trade and still get the win.

Hawks · 02/08/2019 at 14:38

Help please, in 2 leagues, and managed to scrape into the elimination finals in both this week.

I have 2 trades remaining & $29.7k in the bank
Defence & Rucks are set

Mids – Dunkley/McCrae/Neale/Oliver/Cripps/Bont/Pendles/Walsh (Hately & Hind)

Fwd – Danger/Heeney/TKelly/Mundy/JCameron/Chol (Young – stk)

The obvious move is to downgrade Hately to a $102k rookie, then upgrade Chol to the best Fwd under $434.3k (probably Hawkins).

Alternately I could downgrade Chol to a rookie mid, swing Dunkley forward, and upgrade Hately to the best $434.3k mid (probably Touk Miller or Jared Polec).

Or stand still, hope to do a Bradbury with other teams falling over, and have 2 trades in case Gawn pulls out or someone else exits the team.

Appreciate your thoughts.

    Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:36

    Get rid of jeremy now mate. If you muck around you will find a good upgrade for walsh too. Then cross your fingers

      Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:37

      Hang on… Are you playing chol on field?

InNout · 02/08/2019 at 14:40

Upgrade ziebell or Jeremy Cameron to Rowan Marshall ?

Rivo · 02/08/2019 at 15:28

Hi Kev & community,
I have just the 2 trades, $112k & need to offload Ryan & Quaynor. Bench is Hinge & Naish, so it’s a Hail Mary situation, I am in 4 league finals, 3 qualifying. Logic says trade in 2 safer players, heart says stuff that. So it’s Ryan & Quaynor to one of these options…

1. Houli & Birchall (held together with Blue-tak);
2. Rich & Logue (been burnt before);
3. Simpson & Shaw (queue “old man river”);
4. Finlayson & Hartlett (have I lost the plot?).

Leaning towards 1 but geez it’s risky. Thoughts please???

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 15:43

    1 for me Rivo but not with huge confidence but love houli at the G.

    Hope for your sake it Aaron Rodgers throwing the hail mary, if so you are laughing its a TD.

      Rivo · 02/08/2019 at 15:46

      Nice one Maverick. TD definitely needed for the next few weeks. 👍🏽

    Nuggety · 02/08/2019 at 15:57

    I don't mind 3..

      Rivo · 02/08/2019 at 16:56

      Yeah it’s the safety option as they’re more likely to play weekly through SC finals, I hope. Still undecided.

        Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:33

        Houli and birch best value

Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 16:03

I can't believe I am seriously contemplating going Houli over whitfield when money isn't a factor i can afford either.
Just Love Houli playing his 4 remaining at the MCG where he averages 113.5 and tigs are coming in too september hot.
Whitfield I think will cop some very close attention from Hewett this weekend.

    Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:30

    People have been concerned that houli will be a late out. Would go whitfield regardless. When he scores 150 this week you will be glad

    Nick · 03/08/2019 at 13:27

    Hey Mav . What did you end up doing ??! I am in same boat due to Rampe out. Tossing up bw Houli and z Williams. (Have Whitfield).

      Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 13:31

      Hey nick i just replied on your post actually.

      I went whitfield I think He will cop the full attention of hewett today but has a nice run home..
      still not confident I've made the right call to be honest but I don't want him to destroy me in leagues if he goes 150+ like he can

Defying_Madness · 02/08/2019 at 17:00

Hey community got 5 trades left and 40k in the bank and need to deal with Ryan

DEF: Lloyd, Williams, Whitfield, Smith, Ryan, Sicily (D Smith, Gardner)

MID: Macrae, Fyfe, Neale, Treloar, Cripps, Bont, Sloane, M Crouch (Bewely, Scott, Hill)

RCK: Gawn, Grundy (Sweet)

FWD: Danger, Marshall, Boak, Heeney, Kelly, Gray (Cameron, Young)

Just a bit short of going Ryan to Houli unfortunately which I would probably do. Could use another trade to make cash and then go to Houli as well.
M Crouch is underperforming and is a POD in most of my leagues so going Ryan to Simpson and then Crouch up to someone like Duncan is also an option.
Just trading Ryan to someone I can afford currently and waiting until next week to use both trades to upgrade Crouch if he doesn't improve is another thing I could do.

Looking for any advice really.Not liking many of the defence options but maybe I am not seeing something so any ideas I might have missed would also be helpful.

    Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:29

    Ryan and crouch out would be the go.

    I have him but are still unsure about b smith, if you could trade him to a hurn or houli type that would be good

      Defying_Madness · 02/08/2019 at 17:57

      Yeah bank is the main problem right now. Hard to get 2 great players from Ryan and Crouch with only 40k. Smith is the last of my problems whilst he keeps scoring like this.

    derek · 02/08/2019 at 18:59

    Ryan to Laird

      Defying_Madness · 02/08/2019 at 19:29

      I don't mind that. So would you be keeping Crouch then?

        Derek · 02/08/2019 at 20:23

        Crouch is a gun

          Defying_Madness · 03/08/2019 at 20:46

          Laird and Crouch been very good so far. Cheers Derek fingers crossed they keep going

            Derek · 03/08/2019 at 23:06

            I think you made the right choice. Houli did good as well.

Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 17:15

jeremy cameron is withdrawn from the GWS squad.. reported to have calf tightness

    Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:27

    Big for a lot of people

BradleyTC99 · 02/08/2019 at 17:19

Hey lads, is it more important to have as many rookies playing on bench as possible or is a non playing player sufficient? With Cameron out i now have to play a rookie in midfield and ideally, id like to lop them. My current bench is Hind, D Clarke and Bewley, but i am downgrading Bewley this week. Should i just get the playing player in Langlands or go for a 102k non playing DPP?

    Brn · 02/08/2019 at 17:43

    Go Langlands i reckon but most certainly loop clark

    Sam_01 · 02/08/2019 at 17:46

    I mean it really depends on your team
    From the sounds of it if you have mid cover already just get a DPP! Can you just trade jezza?

Sam_01 · 02/08/2019 at 17:43

Poor Jezza
Although on the other hand it gives my multi a cheeky chance now
Chucked on
Cripps for Brownlow, Walsh for rising star, T lynch for Coleman
Hopefully the big lynchpin storms home

James Sykes · 02/08/2019 at 17:48

Hi guys. Posted this on the Podcast thread on Wednesday with little feedback. hoping some brilliant bastard might come to the rescue.

I currently have 3 trades left and sitting in the top 4 in my two cash leagues.

I have to trade out Luke Ryan and probably going to go to Kade Simpson.

My question is: Is it worth using another trade to trade out a non playing bench defender for Grant Birchall? will leave me with 1 trade for the last 3 weeks.

Bench is Pat Naish and Lachlan Young.

Cheers guys.

    derek · 02/08/2019 at 18:50

    Can't see why you would want Birchall.

    he'll probably get rested next week

    he isn't dirt cheap so you can build a big warchest

    only reason you would have a Birchall type on your bench this time of the season would have been if you had him on field earlier and he has been shuffled to the bench and he is nice cover. you don't bring cover like him in now.

    hold the trade, if one of your premiums get injured, trade them out

    GJS · 02/08/2019 at 18:56

    Depends on your opponent for this week. If you have the cover and think you have your opponent's measure, I'd save the trade

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 18:59

    What Derek said I reckon James, no cover is no big deal if you have trades left…just adjust accordingly.

    James Sykes · 02/08/2019 at 19:22

    Wise words guys. You have sold me.

Pranav · 02/08/2019 at 18:07

More or less than a 50% chance that houli is a late out this week?

Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 18:19

Hi guys, wondering if would be better to trade Naish out for Langlands to cover for Lycett (omitted) and hope Lycett gets back in next week or just trade out Lycett for Toby Greene ?…either way I use my last trade up.

    Yeahnah · 02/08/2019 at 18:28

    I would try and get cover on every line Russty, a rookie score is better than a potential donut in the future

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 18:36

      Thanks YN, I'd have cover on every line regardless but Lycett was omitted for apparently not doing what the Coach wanted.
      It's a bit of a worry, maybe he wants to leave Ryder in there now for his swansong.

    derek · 02/08/2019 at 18:45

    have have a similar problem.

    1 trade left, and Lycett gets dropped, there goes my last trade…. but when all seemed lost, i hear that my best mate Parker has been named from second emergency to starting 22 (why i still have Parker in my team is a mystery).

    This must be a sign.

    It was like Burgess last week to cover Hurn.

    Why are the SC Gods being so nice?

    Only problem i have, i'm in 6 elimination finals this weekend and Port play before saints.

      dontblushbaby · 02/08/2019 at 18:48

      Parker is a late in Derek due to illness to Newnes & Paton

        derek · 02/08/2019 at 19:12

        i know.

        i heard Lycett was out and i have only one trade. then i hear Parker gets a game, do i hold my trade and play Parker? oh dear.

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 18:54

      I think I'm just gonna go Lycett to Greene Derek…who knows how long he'll be dropped for and he's worthless sitting on the bench with no trades left, also Langlands could start dropping 30's now that he's had 2 decent scores in a row, seems to be par for a lot of rookies this year.

        derek · 02/08/2019 at 19:14

        get the Chad

          Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:31

          Haha nice try mate!….playing you twice this week as you know, so play Parker bud 😉

            Derek · 02/08/2019 at 20:27

            Chad is pure midfield now

              Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:30

              Still don't trust his body though…maybe next year if he starts well.

Yeahnah · 02/08/2019 at 18:27

Hey guys, bit of a dilemma.
Lycett and Josh Kelly on field, 3 trades left, ~100k in bank. Made top 4 in my cash league
Thinking of going Kelly to Taranto and Lycett to Marshall, leaving me with around ~100k left for my last trade
Thoughts?

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 18:42

    Sounds great YN…Taranto's in great form and cashing in from Kelly / Cogs absence, as is Greene.

derek · 02/08/2019 at 18:38

Good luck to those who are still alive in the JR SURVIVOR CHAMPIONS GROUP.

    dontblushbaby · 02/08/2019 at 18:44

    Best wishes to Holty and Shake ,no offence to the others

    Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 19:17

    👍
    Good luck to all and a massive shout out to you Derek for doing this. Awesome work.

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:27

      Go the Holt and the Shake 🙂

    Loop · 03/08/2019 at 05:30

    I'm Kezzam.
    I'm not expecting to last much longer.
    And I'm not a fella:)

      Holty01 · 03/08/2019 at 11:44

      👍

      Holty01 · 03/08/2019 at 15:09

      I also see you have Worpel and Williams in your side. Fair chance you will still be around in this comp next week as well.

        Loop · 03/08/2019 at 16:13

        Maybe wait to see if Houli plays. I have too many Adelaide players I think, also Zorko is variable. It might come down to captains score this week I think.

          Holty01 · 03/08/2019 at 18:37

          Nice work with Zorko. Really considered starting him this year but decided against it.

    neil demons delight · 03/08/2019 at 23:03

    yes Great to see a lady at the top so must support you. Some really good names there but with your team it's possible. You had a monster score recently, good luck all NDD

GJS · 02/08/2019 at 18:48

Hi- this week I'm in an elimination final in my main league and only have 3 trades and 17K cash left. Though I have J. Kelly on the bench still and both Answerth (Def) and D. Clarke (mid) on field. Thinking of using 2 trades to bring in players who would be on field also and cannot decide between…..
Kelly and Answerth to Treloar and Birchall , or
Kelly and Answerth to D. Shiel and Rich

Doing my head in so would love some advice please

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:01

    I would just trade Kelly to the best you can get and loop the other 2.

      GJS · 02/08/2019 at 19:03

      Thanks Rusty. Thinking Treloar only to save a trade, though would hate to be eliminated this week with 2 trades spare

        Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:16

        Maybe just go for broke then mate, although Shiel and Rich can go a bit missing scorewise, maybe Treloar and Birch are the go, and hope Birch stays fit.
        You'd be happy if Birchall scores another 87 and Treloar a 115 or so, but the other 2 could spud it on the week you really need them.

redherringfc · 02/08/2019 at 18:56

J Cameron is out.

Do I go for Marshall, Boak or Kelly. Marshall costs 2 trades and then 2 trades next week to get Whitfield leaving me all done. The extra $$ saved on Boak or Kelly means 1 trade to get Whitfield.

    GJS · 02/08/2019 at 19:05

    All 3 forwards are guns so you can't really go wrong. I'd probably go Boak or Kelly if it makes next week easier ( I have all 3 already)

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:11

    Boak's been very solid lately, Marshall might not go too big against ROB this week, although he's been in great form also.
    I'd do the one that saves me the most trades.

      redherringfc · 02/08/2019 at 19:18

      Thanks Russty. I’ll reverse trades and wait until I have a clear head.

Dingus · 02/08/2019 at 19:16

Such an appropriate name "The Panic Room" just needs Drowning pools "let the bodies hit the floor" as we enter!
My dilema is Cameron out for hawkins or …? (i.hill as cover)
Zero $ in the bank and 2 trades left, in 1 elim and one qualifying final, also have to field answerth or logue in d6 with quaynor as looper.
FMSCL

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:30

    Go for gold mate….Hawkins to finish strong for the year.

      Dingus · 02/08/2019 at 19:40

      Yep bugger it, Hail Mary incoming, thnx Russty
      I wonder if Logue will improve with Ryan out?

        Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:43

        Maybe a bit, but he doesn't seem to be ready to kill it yet, maybe next year, he's been out of the game a long time.

Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:29

4 trades 160k
I have Cameron & Ryan to deal with..
I guess Ryan -> Whitfield is the go as his years over although VERY tempted by houlis form at the MCG.
I’d have 505k for Cameron unless I just cover him off with setters which I think is the go or else it’d be to green but use most of my $$$.

DEF: Lloyd hurn Williams Smith sicily Ryan* (Burgess naish)

MID: Neale Macrae Fyfe Cripps Treloar Oliver Sloane MCrouch (hill clarke bewley)

RUCK: Gawn grundy (bines)

FWD: Danger Marshall TKelly Dunkley Heeney Cameron* (Gardner setters)

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:41

    Whitfield and Greene I reckon Mav, or Hawkins if you don't have him.

      Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:47

      I'm in 8 qualifying finals and 1 elim so i'd be happy to hold jezza but I don't trust that calf rarely are they 1 week injuries are they especially a big power forward… Im thinking greene may be the go I cant even have setters play then make a call on cameron..

        Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:56

        It's still important to win your Qualifying finals if possible though so you can have a week off and let the other guys have to trade and or sweat.

          Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:22

          yeah you might be right russty..
          woulda been nice if GWS played late sunday so i had the weekend too see how my team was playing out and make a call late or the opportunity to loophole setters he may well go 90+ again haha the last few weeks he's gone 50-60 by HT then finishes on his 70.

            Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:38

            Yeah can't trust a rookie to back up a 90…more likely they'll do the opposite

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2019 at 19:32

Mild panic.

Dammitt Jezza would have liked you on deck this week so I could save trades for another week.

In 3 QF'S and 6 EF's so looking at the quality of opposition dont think I can rely on.a rookie in either setters, hill or Clarke on ground.

Play shakers in two leagues and he is seriously good!

Have the cash to bring in any mid.

Thinking
Clarry- does he put the cue in the rack this year as season over for Dees?
Bbqs?
Zorko
Dunc
Zerrett

As I.said can afford any mid.

Let us know your thoughts so at least I have a chance against shakes! 🙉

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:39

    Clarry never puts the cue in the rack mate…he's a beast regardless, 2nd choice would be Treloar for shoar 🙂

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2019 at 19:42

      Also Bont is on the radar.

      Be interested to see what NDD says about clarry and maybe Dees playing the kids.

      Goodwin did say today he is going to try a few different things next 4 weeks.

    Loop · 03/08/2019 at 05:36

    Lions have Gee and Rich in the last two games. I have Zorko and I think that might not be a good thing.

hedski · 02/08/2019 at 19:38

Cheers again Kev, loved the panic room (and all this great sites) articles all year.
Last roll of the dice in my only final (work cashy) this week.
Spent my last trade getting there so this is how The Martini Police ended up.
Def. Hurn, Laird, Newman (Answorth)
Sicily, Smith, Stewart (Naish)
Mid. Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe (Bewley)
Danger, Sloane, Duncan (Riach)
M.Crouch, Clarke (Angus)
Rck. Grawndy (Bines)
Fwd. Dunks, TK, Tobias (Lycett)
Gray, Hawkins, Chol (Gardener)

Not really the ideal team but as I posted last week circumstances are a bitch.
Good luck to all you good bastards in your finals.
Also good luck to Brownlow Boy and Russty in draft finals.
Go cats 👍🍻

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2019 at 19:45

    Don't write off Trig in draft mate.

    Like tiges timing my run for a shot at glory. 👊

      hedski · 02/08/2019 at 20:30

      Never writing off the Trig bud, hopefully meet you next week, I play Russty and BB, looking fwd to the happy ending.

      hedski · 02/08/2019 at 21:16

      Got you in CAZALY this week too Trig

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 19:48

    Hey Hed, good luck in your cashy and in the Draft final this week too bud, I don't mind who wins, just wanna have a good crop of players for next year.

      hedski · 02/08/2019 at 20:31

      Good that you can hold over 3 players, great concept.

        Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:35

        Well you only get one bench score anyway, may as well load up or keep good players now for next year.
        Had Lycett and Ryan out recently but don't want to let them go, I'd rather lose the GF lol

Lazza · 02/08/2019 at 19:59

Ryan out has screwed my finals plans .. now 1 trade short of where I need to be … had the choice of Bont and Birchall vs Houli and TJ Lynch… went with the first option … so only have 1 trade left for cover .. but I do have full rookie cover on the bench .. so will be able to field a team thru the finals and cover one premo injury.
Good luck y’all.

Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:09

Wonder if the Roos will regret going early on Rhyce Shaw lol…not looking good lately. Could be 4 losses in a row after this week.

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:19

    I couldn't believe when I saw we'd signed rhyce russty..
    He was very good early but was on a run of losses when they secured him I like him alot love the way he's freed up our gamestyle and the way he speaks infront of the media and most importantly he has the players backing but coulda waited til seasons end I think to just be sure

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:21

      I hope he does well Mav, he's an affable type and young so relates to the players of all ages, I'd like to see North have a dominant year where they don't have such peaks and lows, they're still a bit of a yoyo prospect.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2019 at 22:25

    Nah Shaw thing.

finalsfrenzy · 02/08/2019 at 20:29

Hello everybody
I have Luke ryan should i go too whitfield or houli i have 2 trades 95k
I am leaning toward houli his got a very good 3/5 rd average and MCG history my opponent in my cash league has whitfield

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:37

    See if Houli plays first mate, apparently he might miss this week, Whitfield then.

      finalsfrenzy · 02/08/2019 at 20:51

      okay thanks for that so if houli is named is he a better pick than whitfield?

        Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:54

        Lately, Houli has been in good form, but overall, I think Whitfield is a better player.

      Pranav · 02/08/2019 at 21:06

      problem is freo play before the late changes in the tigers game.

Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:32

Is it too early to start calling him Cunntington again?….lol, he's already screwing me in my Draft semi-final.

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:55

    Whose that russty? oh wait do you mean handballington.. lol

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:00

      I guess he fought back in the 2nd Mav and is on 46 now…I might have some hope yet.

        Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:03

        He should be okay mate atleast he isn't copping a tag which he's shown he cannot handle

          Big G · 02/08/2019 at 22:25

          He is a pain

Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:47

Like if you aren't picking Sicily as a premo or at all next year….didn't he used to be good?

    Ja191 · 02/08/2019 at 20:58

    Playing tall defender on Ben brown not easy to score

      Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:59

      Yeah I guess that big red mop would be always in his face lol

        Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:02

        He may be too cheap to pass up if he finishes the year in this sort of form.. I hope I don't get sucked in and can hold off picking him next year he is so frustrating thankfully majority of my opponents have him this season so just gotta ride it out now

          Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:10

          Yeah gotta ride it out Mav, doesn't help that Clarko still doesn't seem to know what his optimum position is.

            Derek · 02/08/2019 at 23:04

            Birchall our will help.

            Birchall back had taken slot of the kicks Sicily would usually have

        Ja191 · 02/08/2019 at 21:10

        Hahahah hard to see over sideshow bob russty

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:17

    Doesn't help when birchall is the lose man down back now instead of the flog

    Lazza · 02/08/2019 at 22:29

    He’s certainly maintained the flog handle Russty … on the never again list for me ..

Big G · 02/08/2019 at 20:51

Thoughts on the Tomahawk. Ultimate risk or reward.

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:01

    Bam!…or bust Big G.

    hedski · 02/08/2019 at 21:17

    He will kick 7 this week and push for the Coleman with Jezza out Big G, do it.

      dontblushbaby · 02/08/2019 at 21:32

      Lynch is value ,all games now at MCG, should kick at least 5 against the Dees tomorrow night

hedski · 02/08/2019 at 20:54

I know we shouldn't take to much notice of projected scores, but in "The rat pack" league I'm playing "the black sheep" and he is projected to score 2645….fck me.

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 20:58

    i'm projected 2680 can confidently say I will not even break 2500. it always happens hedski it's completely demoralising how far off CD are with there projections some weeks haha

      hedski · 02/08/2019 at 21:20

      Yeah I'd be ranked in the top 500 if projections were accurate Mav.

    The_Blacksheep · 02/08/2019 at 21:09

    I'll be cheering if i get that! Haha doubt it though.

      hedski · 02/08/2019 at 21:18

      Bloody nice team ya got there Sheepy.

        The_Blacksheep · 02/08/2019 at 22:01

        Cheers Hedski. Looking to bring in Neale this week for Crouch or Shiel but its got me stuffed whos gonna score less this week.

Ja191 · 02/08/2019 at 21:00

Worpedo to completely stop and finish on 99

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:02

    106 this week lol, that's his 3 round av, at least he's getting better!

Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 21:12

good luck all this round. Should be some big scores first round of finals.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/08/2019 at 21:17

    You too mate.

    How u travelling with trades, injuries, the dreaded general?

      Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:18

      You too Holty.
      Projected to go huge i'd be surprised if I go near it though.

      Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 21:49

      Alright. Bought in Birchall for Ryan mainly to give me a bit of cash to work with. May bring in a forward to allow Lipinski to swing at that m9/f7 position.

        Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:53

        gee that is unlucky hopefully birchalls injury isn't too bad and can come back on.. no ice or not in the tracksuit yet
        Did you have birch onfield or looping him Holty

          Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 22:05

          Looping him. Have Answerth though so not ideal

finalsfrenzy · 02/08/2019 at 21:33

dilemma #2 will greene remain in GWS's midfield til seasons end?
He or Tom Lynch for my last forward spot trading out chol

    Russty_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:38

    Yeah should do, and even if he doesn't he should've gained enough confidence to kick goals if he gets put in the fwd line.
    Lynch could turn into a spud yet…it's all lucky lucky.
    Hope my inconclusive answer helps 🙂

      Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:54

      I'd lean toward greene. rolling through that midfield is mighty nice and a GCS in GF week if u make it!

GJS · 02/08/2019 at 21:54

Birchall down ! SHIT

    Maverick_ · 02/08/2019 at 21:55

    been down for a QTR now GJS. his season looks to be done very unfortunate looks like alot of people bought him in

      DavidC · 03/08/2019 at 08:34

      9216 to be precise. He was a bit of a "hail Mary" pick for a desperate few.

Holty01 · 02/08/2019 at 21:58

Wow. Just bought Birchall in and now out for the season. It was always risky. That’s 4 players now I’ve bought in this year and have injured themselves within 2 weeks. Been one of those years.

    Lazza · 02/08/2019 at 22:31

    Sane Holty.. expensive loophole option now ..

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 10:19

    I know the feeling Holty. I held off Birchall but I have traded in Whitfield twice this season to get injured one week after getting him in on both occasions. Absolutely soul destroying. Then traded in the Hoff who got dropped after two weeks and now Lycett after getting him 2 weeks ago. I am just praying that the trades I make from here stay away from injury traps. Good luck Holt during finals and keep pushing your rank! Cheers. TH.

    Tommy · 03/08/2019 at 13:29

    I brought him in too, just adds to me bringing in cunntington and siciflog a couple of weeks ago. I brought in Daniel the week he got injured and kelly and Whitfield a week before they got injured. Been a good year!

Swans2012 · 02/08/2019 at 22:22

Looks like I might have made a good decision for a change! Brought burnman Higgins into m8/9 this week for 410k….

Eye eye · 02/08/2019 at 23:12

Does anyone have any intel as to whether Rampe is out for just this week with his eye issue or could it be longer.

Redd · 02/08/2019 at 23:19

Worpedo with a 149 the dog!

    DavidC · 03/08/2019 at 08:28

    Wish I'd VC's him, he's getting better each week.

Daniel · 03/08/2019 at 00:10

Who is the best option to chuck the big VC on this week out of JPK, Duncan or the "Tomahawk" Hawkins, all 3 are pods in my top 4 matchup?

    Hawks · 03/08/2019 at 07:08

    Hawkins

Plugga1300 · 03/08/2019 at 08:38

Do I use my.last trade to swap jeremy cameron to a few 440 or below. If I hold him would have to go chol on the field.

Only issue is my def has no cover if someone out so do I hold in case of a withdrawal from defence

Stupid Coach · 03/08/2019 at 08:39

My initial plan was to trade out Jarrod Cameron and bring in Boak. However, now with the other J Cameron out and no bench coverage it looks like I will have to trade him (unless I cop a donut) and stick with my original plan. Who out of Boak, Dunkley or Marshall should I go for to replace Jeremy.

    Stupid Coach · 03/08/2019 at 08:49

    Also, who should I play on field out of Hill (GWS) and Jarrod Cameron. Can't loophole Hill as he is on the bench in the midfield and I don't have any DPP players on the bench in my forward line. Thanks.

      Ja191 · 03/08/2019 at 09:38

      Marshal and Second question would depend on your league match up. I think bobby hill scores more but it depends on if you need a hail merry and higher scoring potential than go cameron

Gen47 · 03/08/2019 at 09:41

Caleb Daniel or Toby Greene?

Dan · 03/08/2019 at 09:45

I have 2 trades left and finished top 4 in my leagues.
I was wondering if you think I should trade Lycett to Caleb Daniel (and plan to use my last trade to upgrade D Clarke to Duncan)?
OR hold the trade, accept the loss this week, but have it for future carnage?

Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 10:06

Would love everybody to put there two bobs worth in if ya could reasons for against etc : Jeremy Cameron -&gt;

A) Toby Greene – $490k 3&5 avg 119/100
B) micheal Walters – $500k 3&5 avg 100/95

Talk to me fellas & before 2pm preferably 😉

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 11:38

    Hi Mav. It has got to be Tobias Greene out of those 3. With J Kelly, Cogs, and Cameron all out, he will get plenty of midfield time and opportunities to roam in the forward line. He is a suspension risk, but if you want consistent 100+ output he is the most likely to give you that. Caleb Daniel could be another option although I think he is a little more expensive. Good luck mate! TH

      Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 11:45

      Thanks for the reply Tophawk! I was pretty bullish on Greene the last 24 hours and saw stattys cheat sheet and bought Walters to my attention this morning an three me into a panic. Is Jelly likely to return in the home and away and push Greene forward?

        TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 11:50

        Josh Kelly's return is tricky. He is set to return round 21 but if history is anything to go by, Jelly always seems to take a bit longer to get over his injuries. Would not be surprised if he is held back for another week or two. I reckon even if Kelly comes back next week, Greene will still produce decent output. He is running into really good form. I don't have him, but I reckon he is a decent option mate.

          Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 12:51

          Thanks TH Toby’s off week or if he moves fwd in future will probably be what Cameron was scoring for me most weeks anyway. It’s just the jelly factor stopping me from pulling the trigger right this very moment .

What_Bear · 03/08/2019 at 11:45

Hi all,

This decision is doing my head in!!!

Trade Heeney, M. Crouch or Rockliff to bring in Marshall.

Will leave me 2 trades and $150k in case of injury or 1 more upgrade

Behind in my league finals and need a points boost

Thanks in advance for any responses

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 11:57

    Out of those 3 I think Rocky is the most suspect in terms of an injury risk and up and down scoring. If I had to punt one of those 3 for Marshall I'd punt Rockliff. But remember mate, he is called "the pig" for a reason and can still produce a big score albeit a lot less often these days. Good luck Bear! TH

      What_Bear · 03/08/2019 at 12:32

      Thanks for the advice. I feel like which ever one I pick will score 110+

    Joe T · 03/08/2019 at 12:51

    Agree with TopHawk. Risky players in finals are no good (even though i think Rocky will go big today)

      What_Bear · 03/08/2019 at 13:08

      Might hold. If Rocky goes big, I may not have to trade to win. Thanks for the advice. Will have the same dilemma next week 🙂

Joe T · 03/08/2019 at 12:40

Last 2 trades of my season this week, need to do it to try win finals

Best mid option out of Macrae, Treloar and Oliver?

    What_Bear · 03/08/2019 at 12:41

    Macrae for me

    Tony · 03/08/2019 at 12:57

    I’d pick them in the order you listed them

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 12:57

    Macrae is #1 if you don't mind spending the extra and not worried about his high ownership

Tony · 03/08/2019 at 12:56

Need money for Whitfield, who do we think is most likely to hold their spot? Dunkley, Snelling or Mclean?

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 13:00

    snelling of those 3.
    can you get langlands?

TommyC99 · 03/08/2019 at 13:00

Think i'm gonna trade Cameron. Might just be a week but originally brought him in to loop with hawkins but hawkins has a nice run home so dont really need both of them.
My options include:

Duncan – Like him a lot but already got 3 cats. Is that an issue?
JPK – Ever so reliable but swans season is done
Yeo – Like him but i'd only have $200 left in the bank
Greene – Good run home plus has a better role now.

Which option pls community?

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 13:02

    duncan for me Tommy I've been bullish on him for 4-5 weeks now. still very cheap and may well go 110+ every week on the run home. wish I had the trades in hand to offload MCrouch to duncan

Pranav · 03/08/2019 at 13:14

Thoughts on vc Marshall into c Dunkley? Is there an obvious candidate I’m missing?

Nick · 03/08/2019 at 13:17

Heeeellp,

1 hour to decide on;

Rampe to z Williams or Houli. H has a great run home and is cheaper. W prob has better ceiling …..

Thoughts please.

    Nick · 03/08/2019 at 13:19

    Btw.. in elimination final in cash league with projections close. Must win and have 3 trades left

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 13:28

    I like Houli love his form at the MCG and the tigs are flying!! rumours are his only 50/50 to play could be a late out which would be disastrous but imo he plays.. or you play it safe with Williams who you know is lining up in 40minutes and guaranteed some points, good luck Nick

      Nick · 03/08/2019 at 14:13

      Thanks Mav. Have gone with Williams as opponent has Houli. If Houli is out that should be the game in the bag. Let’s see what the SC gods have in stall. Good luck.

        Derek · 03/08/2019 at 18:17

        You must be happy with choice

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 23:05

    Williams 124 🔐
    Houli 132 😵

    Still take either both great scores. Haha

      Nick · 04/08/2019 at 12:39

      Not unhappy but would have preferred Houli’s score .Was at the game last night and he did not appear to get heaps of the ball but when he did he was very good. I think he will be on fire for the rest of the season. The rest of this round will now be very close For me.

      Good luck Mav and Derek!!

RealDealNeale · 03/08/2019 at 14:30

Forgot to trade DeGoet to Gray!!

Best option;
1. Hold and play Chol
2. T.Lynch
3. Hawkins
4. Mundy

    RealDealNeale · 03/08/2019 at 14:50

    Thoughts on Howe and Hawkins in for Logue and DeGoey? Howe/Blakely/Sicily would be D5-7, Hawkins F6

Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 15:07

Where did Greene start the game he looks to have a slow first half? Please don’t tell me his playing forward 🙄

Don’t make me regret selecting you over Walters, Toby!

    Holty01 · 03/08/2019 at 15:53

    Hey Mav. Seeing plenty of the ball just butchering it a bit. Still doing alright mate

      Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 16:50

      looks to have come good Holty. thank goodness lets hope he keeps his role for the rest of the year even when Jelly returns

        Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 17:19

        Turned out all right for ya bud 🙂

          Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:18

          walters on 100 midway through the 3rd russty lol

            Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:25

            Both good choices mate haha

Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 17:17

some scores with massive scaling up 10-15min post game for giants V swans
Greene – 17 pts
Whitfield – 15 pts
Heeney – 17 pts

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 17:19

    Hey Mav, yeah it's cause they were so slow at the end of the game, took about 8 minutes for them to register Heeney's last goal.

Pman · 03/08/2019 at 17:37

Hi Community I'm in the unfortunate position that I need to start one of Hind or Wills as my M8 having passed on Hills 53 today. Who do you think is likely to score better, Hinds who scored 75 last week or Wills who is back in the Pies side with a bit to prove against the Suns on Sunday at the G? Am leaning towards Wills but could flip a coin and used my last 2 trades bringing in Greene and Macrae. Thoughts?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:15

    Hey Pman, I'd trust your gut and go with Wills, Hind's last 3 scores before last week were sub 50

Pman · 03/08/2019 at 18:29

Cheers Rusty I think you are right and Hind needs to kick goals to get a decent score so Wills it is.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:06

    Good luck mate, hope Hind doesn't have another best game..haha

Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:43

What a cruddy game for Danger, had the VC on him too lol, the 32% of coaches who don't have him will be happy.

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:50

    still waiting too see if gawns a late out may roll the VC on him on a ruckless tiges..
    hope he goes better than grundy a week ago though

      Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:57

      They named final teams already Mav and Gawny was in there.

        Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 18:59

        cheers mate couldn't find it anywhere

          Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:03

          afl.com.au and Preuss is named on the wing so could be taking some rucking duties away from Gawn.

    JugHead · 03/08/2019 at 19:16

    Strange in a way. And no way I was putting the VC on Fyfe with his elbow issue, then he goes out and gets 20+ contested posessions. Captaincy has been a bit of a headache this week.

    Derek · 03/08/2019 at 19:19

    Was he on 50 at half time?

      Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:24

      Yeah close Derek, 46 or something, a real non event game for Danger this week.

Jonno · 03/08/2019 at 18:56

guys, quick answer please. VC on Gawn or Grundy? Thanks community.

    Maverick_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:01

    gawn imo captain grundy

      Jonno · 03/08/2019 at 19:11

      Thanks Mav

Laurie · 03/08/2019 at 19:14

Need some urgent advice who to bring in for Stack Bont or Oliver?

    Ja191 · 03/08/2019 at 19:16

    Flip a coin, pretty hard to seperate

    hedski · 03/08/2019 at 19:20

    Flip a coin both killing it

neil demons delight · 03/08/2019 at 19:15

Didn't see that coming, Fyfe just monstered the cats .This just makes WCE so much better placed to win it again . Cats would be wise to forget it and re focus ,they are still a good team capable of winning it NDD

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:32

    Hawkins disappeared in the 2nd half and Danger was largely ineffective…didn't help, Fyfe, Walters, Hill dragged em home to victory with a huge 2nd half.

    Holty01 · 03/08/2019 at 20:50

    I think the ship has sailed mate. All premiers come home strong after the byes. Cats have stalled and have looked very poor for over a month now. They still sitting on top but right at present there would be many teams liking their chances vs Geelong come finals time. I really hope I’m wrong as out of the teams I think have a chance, I would prefer Geelong to win but right at present I can’t see that happening.

      neil demons delight · 03/08/2019 at 23:09

      Home final is going to be big Holty,also their best players last year are hitting their straps big time ,Darling JJK Sheed all good. I too want the cats mainly because they are entertaining to watch

        JohnDJ59 · 03/08/2019 at 23:59

        I'd like to see Brisbane win, just for something different.

          neil demons delight · 04/08/2019 at 07:49

          not without a chance either John,great mixture of youth and talent

hedski · 03/08/2019 at 19:18

When you bang the VC on Hawkins and he is 65 at QTR time then gets 10 more points for the game🤮.
Aaarrgh cats.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 19:25

    Your year in a nutshell mate lol, he was heading for a 150 by the looks.

      Big G · 03/08/2019 at 20:42

      Is he related to Jeremy Cameron?

        Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 21:08

        All kpf's are related aren't they Big G?…lol, freakin yoyo boys.

The Ranger · 03/08/2019 at 19:43

Take Blakelys 78 or run with Answerth and Witherden?
If I take the 78, which one of the above two would you put onfield?

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 20:01

    I'd take it Ranger and probably go with Answerth after last week, and how bad Witherden's going this year.

    neil demons delight · 03/08/2019 at 20:47

    take the 78 Ranger def Noah on field the kid can play

Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 21:18

Just a wild guess but I'm thinking this will be Parker's last game for the year lol

Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 21:27

Nick Coffield looks like he gets his hair cut at the 1990's Pornstar permed mullet specialist emporium.

    Beezneez · 04/08/2019 at 11:10

    😀 Parker's is a bit of a worry as well.

Pman · 03/08/2019 at 21:48

Cheers Rusty I think you are right and Hind needs to kick goals to get a decent score so Wills it is.

JohnDJ59 · 03/08/2019 at 21:54

What happened to Gawn in the last Q, I thought he was heading towards 125 at least.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 22:00

    Scores are broken John, hasn't updated for about 15 minutes!

      JohnDJ59 · 03/08/2019 at 22:02

      Ok thanks Russty, I was thinking not another VC bust.

    Sam_01 · 03/08/2019 at 22:00

    Don’t think scores updated

      JohnDJ59 · 03/08/2019 at 22:03

      Thanks Sam, I was worried he might have been injured.

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 22:06

    Finally updated now, Gawn 134, Clarry 111

      JohnDJ59 · 03/08/2019 at 22:17

      Very good, I'll take that, thank you very much. I'm going to lose in the Won't Back Down league final, but I'm still a chance to win TheSonsOfAnarchy elimination final.

TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 22:10

The Tophawks are slugging it out in a qualifying final against Shake and bake in the GNR league. Any chance of an upset?

    Derek · 03/08/2019 at 22:59

    You have me easy in the draft league. Tiny window with you putting C on Sloane.

    Beezneez · 04/08/2019 at 11:07

    Hi TH just had a look at the matchup of your game. Unfortunately for you, Shakes last 7 players, except for Burgess, are really strong – even Burgess scored okay last week. Fortunately, you have two bites at the captaincy to help. Funny things can happen though – late outs, injuries etc . I'm 40 odd points ahead of Finnius with all uniques played and we have the same vc and c. Will be keeping a close eye to see he doesn't do any sneaky moves.

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:41

      You are spot on Beezneez. He still has some seriously good hombres to come. That's why he is top of the ladder. I am still very much up against it. Still have a sneaky surprise up my sleeve if needed. Cheers Beez.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/08/2019 at 12:06

        Could there be an upset brewing in the happy place?

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2019 at 22:16

Ahh crouching one, crouching two- you do good.

Went the safe bet and brought in Clarry as 8 out of 9 opponents had him so just made sense to even up the stakes. 113 yeah I'll take that.

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/08/2019 at 22:24

    The Crouch boys have been superb in 2019. TH is happy tonight.

      Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 22:30

      Russty is happy for you too TH, and also, I, Russty am also happy for you, and also, I am happy for you two 😉

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/08/2019 at 22:30

      TH × 2. 😁

gvaa1 · 03/08/2019 at 22:58

lot of activity this week <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/Jkzv/bg_FFFFFF/txt_DEDEDE/border_FFFFFF/flags_0/&quot; width="1"/>

    Russty_ · 03/08/2019 at 23:01

    Yep…the weather has been rather temperate today too, some rain, but largely mild.

neil demons delight · 03/08/2019 at 23:13

Level pegging in ROAMING BRIAN'S draft with King lear and myself but he does have at least 36 for the automatic emergency and desrves it after forgetting Jed Anderson was dumped . I have 8 left he has 4 Anyone know how FINNS and Gator's are going?

Jeffrey · 03/08/2019 at 23:19

Will Jordan Sweet be a late inclusion?

TommyC99 · 04/08/2019 at 01:17

You'd take the Gawn's 134 over Grundy C dont ya?

    Fearthebeard · 04/08/2019 at 07:20

    My dilemma too. Or Neale macrea bont Cripps 🤪

    The Ranger · 04/08/2019 at 08:18

    I'd take the 134 Tommy.
    Witts is in decent nick and will want to do well against his old team.

Stupid Coach · 04/08/2019 at 07:02

I have the VC on Gawn and can take it by loopholing Cameron (WC) and Gardner. However, I have made an error by already putting an E on Young (Saints) which means that if I also put the E on Cameron then I will get the lower of the two scores which will be a big fat zero. Is it worth it to get Gawn's score or should I put the C on Cripps or Macrae.

    neil demons delight · 04/08/2019 at 07:51

    do you get zero or does it have to be a score,drafts do

    The Ranger · 04/08/2019 at 08:14

    Depends on your match up this week but I'd prob take a punt on Cripps or Macrae.

    Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 10:29

    Young didn’t play so it doesn’t register.

    Stupid Coach · 04/08/2019 at 12:10

    Thank you all for your advice. My opponent still has Grundy (VC), Hurn, Mcrae, Answerth, Cripps, Bont and Neale to come while I have J Cameron (WC), Mcrae, Crisps, Bont and Neale. If I loophole Gawn's score then I am projected to lose by 68, however, if I put the C on Macrae then I will lose by 38. So I will put the C on Macrae and hope that Grundy has a relatively quite one and Macre outscores Dunkley like he did last week.

Joe T · 04/08/2019 at 07:52

Would most back Macrae to score 105+ ?

If not I'll need to make up some points by putting the C on bont, cripps or neale and hope they score more than 134.

Not sure which of the two scenarios is more likely.

    The Ranger · 04/08/2019 at 08:12

    I'd back in Jackson Joe

The Lost Boys · 04/08/2019 at 10:06

Do I take Gawn's 134, or gamble on Grundy, Macrae, Cripps or Neale to go big? Currently leading my match 1607 to 1377, but my opponent has the VC on Fyfe with 144, and it's my Setterfield vs his Dunkly & Bont for unique players left to play. Looking to be a close one!

    Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 10:38

    Hey mate. I think you’re in trouble. I think you will have to pull out a Hail Mary. With less then 100 points in it and with what they have to come, it will be tough. Cripps would be the only one out of that lot I wouldn’t put the C on.

    Joe T · 04/08/2019 at 10:52

    Am I missing something here? Even if you don't count setterfield your lead is 230 pts (minused 10 pts for gawn vs.fyfe C)

    So you need dunkley and bont to score less than 230 pts plus whatever setters scores. Even if he gets 30 pts that's a big ask of dunkley and bont. Unless I've got this wrong I'd say take Gawn

      Joe T · 04/08/2019 at 10:54

      Sorry that should say 220 pts instead of 230 pts

        The Lost Boys · 04/08/2019 at 11:08

        That's a good point – hadn't realised it was that much of a difference! Thanks to you both! 🙂

      Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 11:14

      I’m lost now.🤔

        The Lost Boys · 04/08/2019 at 11:48

        We're all lost, Holty!
        I'm currently leading by 230 (1607 – 1377) and I have Setterfield vs opponents Dunkley and Bont to go.
        If I take Gawn's 134 as Cap, that leaves me with a lead of 220 (230 less the 10 extra points from opponent having Fyfe as Cap).
        So Dunkley and Bont will need to make 220 plus whatever Setterfield makes to catch me. I reckon Setterfield should make 50+, so while it's possible they'll make 270 odd combined, it's unlikely.

MidPricer · 04/08/2019 at 10:17

Help community, I am in my league playoffs (1v4) and I have one unique left to play (Hurn) and i need him to get better than 84. Plus we both have the C on Grundy. So do I back Hurn to get better than 84 and copy the captain choice or do I captain cripps or mcrae or dunkley or neale? I really need next week off. Help

    Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 10:40

    Who is ur vc on?
    Plus you would have to back Hurn in to score more. He has been very good all year.

      MidPricer · 04/08/2019 at 10:50

      I have Gawn but had stuffed my VC, can only get his score if I switch dunkley for choy

        Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 11:08

        Ouch. I sort of managed to do the same thing. Birchall and Choi had the E as well but neither scored well. Haven’t stuffed up my vc all year until first week of finals<img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🤦🏼‍♂️" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f926-1f3fc-200d-2642-fe0f.svg"&gt;
        I think you would have to back in Hurn

        The Lost Boys · 04/08/2019 at 11:09

        I'd normally back Hurn for 100+, but he is returning from injury, so tough call. I think he's still likely to make at least 84.

TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 10:27

Hi community! I am locked in an absolute qualifying final classic with Shake and Bake in the GNR league. I am trailing in that one by 75 projected points but TH has closed the gap and will scrap all the way to the finish line. In A Graders I am up against the Bundeena Bunnies in an elimination final and have my nose slightly in front there, but it looks like it will be a tight finish. In JCRL I am confident of pulling off the win against the Dependables. Currently sitting on 1710 with Grundy VC and Macrae C, Crisp, Lipinski, and Answerth to come. That is provided I dont pull a sneaky trade today!! How is everyone else going in the major finals match ups? Cheers. TH

    Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 11:01

    Alright for me TH. Have Shake as well in the A Graders. I’m in 6 finals right now but it is the A Graders I care about so neglecting the rest of them. Held the 2nd trade this week as I feel I would be very unlucky for Shake to catch up to me. But will probably lose some other league matches because of it. 🤦🏼‍♂️

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:15

      Hi Holt. You are definately in the drivers seat mate. Shake has taken Gawn's VC score. He might upgrade Setterfield today and swing Burgess from the backline back forward and plonk him on the bench. I am not sure how much cash he has left or how many trades he has, but he could then bring in Hurn or Kade Simpson. Thats what I am watching out for. Cheers.

        Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 11:28

        He May well do it. I took the punt with Birchall and at halftime thought it was a master stroke but quickly back fired. Will now either hold or wait and see what Shake does. Ideally want either Houli or Williams next week but will bring in Rich if required I guess.

          TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:36

          Nic Newman could be a good option also. Rich always makes me so nervous. LOL

    Pranav · 04/08/2019 at 11:06

    Currently 23 points behind on projections in my toughest matchup. The situation is I’m 108 vs his Treloar. But this is assuming we both C Grundy after VC gawn I’m almost definitely taking gawns score so just have to wait and see at 1:10 what my opponent does

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:19

      Thats super close Pranav! Wow. I think Treloar will smash 108 against Gold Coast. If you want to win, you might want to hope he takes Gawn's VC score so you can whack the C on Grundy. That is your best chance of winning. If you both take Gawn's VC Treloar will reel in the 108 and you will go down. If you want to win mate, you are going to have to back Grundy and hope he sticks with Gawn.

        Pranav · 04/08/2019 at 12:12

        Yeah I think I’ve lost either way cause Treloar should easily get 108 and I don’t think Grundy or the other captaincy options I have will outscore gawn enough to give me the win. I think I’m just going the safe route of gawn vc and hope Grundy doesn’t kill it. Only reason I’m playing it safe is because it’s a qualifying final, next week onwards it’s all guns blazing. Thanks for the advice TH and good luck with your finals matchups today

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/08/2019 at 12:12

    May be an upset brewing in the happy place hawk.

    Smell of blood is in the water.

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 12:25

      Let me go and have a look. The happy place has been forgotten since somebody relegated me to 9th last week! LOL Just kidding around. Minor finals is irrelevant. Only major finals count. Mate, the Instagator is toast! You will smash him. Looks like he has run out of trades as it seems he only has 21 players on field and 0 bench cover. Straight into the prelim Trigga! Good stuff. TH

    Derek · 04/08/2019 at 18:10

    It is coming down to me with C on Neale and TH with C on Macrae and I’ve got about 30pts start.

    Too close to call with 40 mins of footy left

KSinny · 04/08/2019 at 10:31

Take Gawn VC or C Macrae?

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 10:56

    I think you would have to take Gawn's 134 mate. Its a frustrating VC score as it is middle of the range, but its 268 points which I would lock away. Macrae could get 150 like last week, but are those 16 points really worth chasing? Runs on the board mate. Runs on the board. Take Gawn's 134. Cheers Sinny. TH

      KSinny · 04/08/2019 at 11:17

      Cheers for the reply Tophawk! I'm in a pretty tight game and down by 66 projected points so I think I might take a chance and Chuck the C on Macrae. If it wasn't a must win game though I'd Definatly take your advice.

        KSinny · 04/08/2019 at 11:18

        Cripps or Macrae I Can't decide!

        TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:24

        That changes everything! If you have to win your final then Id back Cripps as he has the higher ceiling. The only problem is that Cripps does have a higher standard deviation between his best and worst. His best is 200 and on an off week he can drop an 80. Macrae in a great game can pump out 170 max and is still good for 100 in an off game. Since you trail by 66 projected, Cripps might have to be the go to guy to get you over the line. And pray he has another big day! Good luck mate.

          KSinny · 04/08/2019 at 11:29

          Thanks mate ill need some luck.

          Joe T · 04/08/2019 at 11:37

          Cripps may get the Hutchings tag though?

            TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 11:44

            At this stage that wont happen Joe. Hutchings is an emergency, unless he is a late in. Watch final teams. If he gets a late call up, then Crippa will cop some heat for sure.

        Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 11:41

        Agree with Hawk. 134 is a good score but you need better it seems. I’d go Macrae however as Cripps has the Eagles and a likely Yeo tag.

Cam · 04/08/2019 at 12:18

200 + Caleb Daniel v treloar howe and dunkley
Me^ opponent^

Should I take vc of gawn like my opponent did, or change it to a Grundy macrea cripps?

JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 13:13

Anyone know what's happened to Colin/The Instagator, I'm looking at winning against him for the third time this year, has he given up, run out of trades ?

    Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 14:01

    Hi John, haven't seen Col around for awhile, last time I saw him here he said he was pretty busy with other things this year, I think he might've run out of trades, has some serious money on the bench.

      JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 14:35

      Yes, I thought that might be the case, he has Kelly and Ryan and has the E on Hurn, who will move on field for the Eagles game. It just drills into us, how important trades are at this stage of the season, I've been lucky in the fact that I have cover at the moment, not very good cover with scores of 56 and 37, but still better than two donuts, like I was getting a few weeks back. If I win the Sons elimination final, I'm really going to need Kelly back next week to be any chance.

        Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 14:53

        For sure about the trades mate, I'm gonna make that my priority next season, regardless of rank, it's more important if playing for leagues like I do to come home strong at the end.
        Hope Kelly gets back for you John.

          JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 15:25

          Same here Russty, it's so easy at the start of the season to do a few sideways trades to get your team back on track, but unless they were glaring mistakes that needed fixing, it's not worth it. I usually end up only ranked in the 20k to 24k range anyway, so trades will be worth gold from the start next year, not just when I'm running out of them.

          JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 18:16

          Looks like i'm going to lose both my elimination finals now, my opponent in Sons has the C on Macrae. It will be close, but the momentum is on his side.

Defying_Madness · 04/08/2019 at 13:42

Anyone who went from Cogs to Treloar a couple weeks back would be feeling gold right now

    JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 15:11

    Treloar has been really consistent since the bye rounds, would have been a good pick up at around 500k

      left field option · 04/08/2019 at 16:16

      definitely was a good move. Will ensure I get the weeks rest. I like the way he goes hard at all times.
      Just going to cut Rocky for Marshal (via Danger) for a luxury Prelim final change.

Redd · 04/08/2019 at 13:42

Treloar on 70 at qtr time!

    Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 13:50

    Putting on a clinic!!! Had him since day one!
    I thought my 2700+ projection was looking ambitious but I might just get there if he keeps this up

      Redd · 04/08/2019 at 14:19

      Hes going on with it aswell 113 at half time!

    JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 14:00

    My opponent has him in my Won't Back Down elimination final, it was going to be close, but this will get him over the line.

Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 14:28

The butcher on 113 at half time. 21 touches, 11 contested, 1 goal, 3 assists and a whopping 95% de. Yep 113 is well deserved.

    Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 14:39

    To be honest being a big pies man and treloar fan
    He has cleaned up his game quite a lot, I pick him like every year I feel like he has just about shook the butcher tag
    Is normally around 70% odd DE the days of 50% are gone

      Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 16:04

      Think his problem is by foot. That is where ur sc score comes from. Very rare he goes at +50% de by foot. Today however was not the case. He played a very good game.

TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 16:28

Had to choose between Hurn and Newman for that final defensive upgrade. Punted Answerth to…………..Hurn. Of course Newman is 100 and half time and Hurn on a paltry 50. FML.

    Maverick_ · 04/08/2019 at 16:39

    that's just unlucky Tophawk but I think majority of people in your shoes would have chosen hurn been more of a consistent player over the season and has a nice ceiling so don't be too hard on yaself as long as he doesn't cost you too many elemination finals he may be the better player over the semi's prelims and GF for you. Newman is known for dropping regular 60-70s hurn not so much mate

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 17:48

      I know Mav. Hurn has been OK today. Got to look ahead to the real pointy end of the finals. He wont cost me any wins. So all good! Cheers.

    hedski · 04/08/2019 at 16:41

    Got Newman as my last upgrade last week TH, need him to keep going, my opponent has Neale captain, need him to get less than a hundred, you can only pray.

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 17:49

      That was a masterstroke Hedski. He might drag you over the line in your final mate. Neale and Cripps are on track for big turds.

        hedski · 04/08/2019 at 17:52

        Wont know exactly until after the blues/Eagles game but looking like I'll need Neale to go less than 50 in the second half for me to win 🤞

        hedski · 04/08/2019 at 18:44

        Aaarrgh, Neale only needs an 8 point last QTR and I'm toast.
        I blame Hinkley for dropping Lycett and forcing me to field Chol.
        And I should probably take a small amount of blame for having no trades …..

    Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 17:20

    Better than having Answerth on field so far mate, Newman hurt too but the damage is already done with his score

      TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 17:50

      Yep. Answerth was a great rook, but he had to go today. Pretty much uber premo now. Just Lipinski at F6 but he is doing a decent job for now.

    Daz · 04/08/2019 at 18:02

    My pods in cash league final in that game were Cripps vs Newman; gunna be my first loss of the year in that league cause of that match up… FML

    Derek · 04/08/2019 at 18:13

    Neale is lifting in the second half. He needs to stay within 20 of Mccrae.

      Derek · 04/08/2019 at 18:22

      I am torn. I have C on Macrae vs TH in draft and TH has C on Macrae vs me in classic

        JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 18:24

        classic is more important.

          neil demons delight · 04/08/2019 at 18:48

          agree john but derek will still be a winner either way,classic all the way

            Derek · 04/08/2019 at 19:00

            I’ll take them both getting 150

              Derek · 04/08/2019 at 19:03

              Neale gone to sleep in last quarter

Big G · 04/08/2019 at 17:10

Jack macrae can marry my sister. Does the bloke collect possessions in his sleep?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/08/2019 at 17:28

    1 of the 7.

    He gun

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 17:47

    He is a gem big G. Had him captain last week too and scored a 150. Hopefully he can keep going and repeat the dose. Fingers crossed.

    Pman · 04/08/2019 at 19:10

    Traded him
    in this week with my last trade and he's 100% "Stiffy Material"!!!!

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:12

      That's a heck of a good last trade Pman…nice!

Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 18:35

RIP Zorko pod, was nice for the two weeks while it lasted
Cost me going 2700+

Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:06

wow. I was 75 ahead of Shake coming into the last match. Thought I had it sewn up. I have Lipinski, he has the Bont. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 19:16

    I just lost my TheSonsOfAnarchy league elimination final at the death, my opponent had the C on Macrae.

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:15

      Bad luck mate but we know what we must do next season…hey I beat pauline pantsdown by 4 points, it was my Bont vs his Macrae and then Bont kicked that goal….that goooooaaaaaallllllll lol

        JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 21:24

        Well done Russty, not having those two in my team has hurt big time and yes we must save trades in the first half of the season if we are to have any chance of having at least 5 trades left for this time of the season.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 19:32

    I think I have beaten shake Holty! Macrae captain like last week has been the difference. Macrae has been amazing. Bontempelli nearly got him home though. Just waiting on final scores. Got him. 2403 to 2365. BANG!! Into the prelim in the Guns and Rookies League. Time to chill out next week.

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:11

      I knocked the Shake out of a league this week…sorry Shaker but it's dog eat dog at this time of year haha

        TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 21:37

        Shaker is full of crapoli. If he has still has 4 trades he would have surely pulled one today. Would he let me win a qualifying final in a major league match up today? I should think not. Shaker is low or out of trades. Keep relegating them Russty! Do we meet next week?

          Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:49

          I think he's in transit Hawk, out of country, think we meet in a Draft GF and maybe one or two others in classic. Best of luck bud.

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:31

      I wouldn't relax too much TH, after Finn beats me next week, you'll have to deal with him….LOL

      Beezneez · 04/08/2019 at 22:05

      Well done TH. Macrae as c was a good move and Cripps spudding helped. I beat Finnius by 41 the result was known after the Crows game as we only had 5 uniques each. Was going to go Macrae as c but had to match Fin going with Gawn – no harm done. Scored 2607 and moved to 276. Also beat my younger brother which was very satisfying.

Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:29

Nice work Shake, too good again.I shouldn’t have played it safe as thought I had you. Bont changed everything however. Now I’ll have to trade next week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 19:37

    At last! Shake, I finally get one over you. I rode my luck with my POD premos and it came off. Macrae was incredible as captain. The Bont nearly got you home. Hopefully meet you again in the big one. (If I get there). You are one hell of a coach Shake. Cheers mate. TH

      Shake_n_bake · 04/08/2019 at 20:17

      If l was able to make that trade l would have just beat you TH. But had to play Burgess. I dont mind thou like they say there is always next week!! Hope you go on to do very well TH.

    Shake_n_bake · 04/08/2019 at 19:45

    Hey Holty l was going to do 1 trade this week quaynor to Simpson but as you know only back in Melbourne today. So l just missed it. Lost 50pts because played Burgess <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🙁" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f641.svg"&gt;. It also lost me a couple of games. Lucky to have double chance. Now with 4 trades left I’ll definitely use 2 next week

      Holty01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:47

      Awesome mate. You are sitting pretty with 4 in hand.

        TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 21:38

        Not sure if he has Holt.

          Shake_n_bake · 04/08/2019 at 21:59

          Yeah l do have 4 trades left might get stuck with a couple!

Brn · 04/08/2019 at 19:33

Will i move up (much?) with 2580? Was ranked 90

    Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:38

    hard to say haha! Solid score indeed depends on if your pods fired I guess most teams around the top end score 2400-2500 easy, I reckon you will creep up a few spots tho Brn

Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:33

2631 for me this week, couple of weak links in Sicily, Zorko and danger but it was offset by some Herculean scores, how did everyone else go?

    The Ranger · 04/08/2019 at 19:37

    Great score Sam, 2555 for me.
    Won most games but Rockburner got me by 6pts.

    Defying_Madness · 04/08/2019 at 19:37

    2640 this week for me. Sicily, Cripps and Danger were the dud scores. Team is peaking nicely and still got 4 trades left so hopefully will win some leagues and push towards top 1000.

      SamuraiPizzaCat · 04/08/2019 at 20:54

      Wow great score and positioned nicely to finish strong

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 19:45

    2403 for me. Bit below par. Won my finals so no worries.

    JohnDJ59 · 04/08/2019 at 19:55

    2385 for me, lost my two elimination finals, one close the other not so much and won most of the ones that didn't matter in the minor finals.

    No idea · 04/08/2019 at 20:16

    I'm pathetically ranked ~ 23K, though this week scored 2579

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:33

      That's not pathetic, 100,000 is pathetic, you'll improve 🙂

    hedski · 04/08/2019 at 20:41

    2400 on the dot and lost my elimination by 6 points.
    Having to play Chol for Lycett cost me big.
    Fck you Hinkley ya turd.

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:07

      Agree Hed, what a turd Hinkley is dropping Lycett and for who?…Dixon…he's a massive spud.
      I had to use my last trade getting rid of him too, got Yeo so not a bad swap..got me over the line in most games this week.

    Pranav · 04/08/2019 at 20:47

    Very happy with 2593. Into 2 prelims and one semi final and I’ve moved up into 850th in overall rankings which I’m very happy with. 3 trades left but only 60k in the bank and some paper thin rookie cover

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 04/08/2019 at 20:52

    Great score Sam! 2533 for me this week, pretty happy with that. Enough to keep me in the league finals and climbing ranks.

    Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:08

    Noice Sam!…some very big scores in there this week fellas and gals…you guys are good!

    Maverick_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:19

    2580 for me won 7 of my qualifying finals lost 1 qualifying and lost my 1 elimination too mighty crow in the JR mega league who ever that is in here congrats on a huge 2680 I would have knocked anyone else off in the league just had to come up against you haha very nice score! Just got over shake in the Hey ho league also bad luck mate you've been #1 all year i'm sure you will bounce back next week.

    moved up 1200 places to 5700 now would love to finish top 5000

    my villains were the the standard Danger, sicily, cripps and LLoyd was underwhelming
    Treloar, greene, Gawn (C), Macrae, Fyfe, Grundy and Williams were all solid picking up the slack

      Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:37

      Very good score shinboner…finals are always a week by week prospect mate, anyone can beat anyone, well done and good luck for the rest.
      I had a good score 2457 but still dropped 350 spots so par must've been 2500 this week.
      Glad I didn't come up against you this week you high scoring bastard!

JugHead · 04/08/2019 at 19:35

There will be some mammoth scores this week. Normally I would be happy to get the 2450 I got. This week Ive had my ar*e handed to me.

    Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 19:39

    Yeah I reckon a couple will have hit 2700

Sam_01 · 04/08/2019 at 20:32

Managed to move up another 140 spots
Sitting at 305 now, gee I would love to finnish inside the top 100

    Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:09

    Well done Sam keep pushing…I scored 2457 and dropped 300 spots!….LOL

      Browncow · 05/08/2019 at 00:02

      That’s ridiculous. Normally lock in a nice jump for that score. Have seen games lost with 2570.

hedski · 04/08/2019 at 20:42

Well done in the draft leagues Russty and Brownlow Boy, bring on 2020.

    Russty_ · 04/08/2019 at 21:04

    Cheers Dion, very unlucky to go down to Tom by 7 points mate, it's been a fun year though 🙂

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/08/2019 at 21:07

Straight through to the prelim in the happy place finally raised the baton against shake. 😎

Won 9 out of ten leagues finals with mighty crow handing me a pasting in jock Reynolds league. 2680 crackin score cant compete with that! Well done too good.👏

    Shake_n_bake · 04/08/2019 at 22:01

    Nearly everybody was to good for me this weekend. Lucky to have the double chance. Maybe meet again if not hope you go on to win your league Trigg.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/08/2019 at 09:23

      Shake – You know the only reason most players mention beating you is because you are bloody good at this caper and so hard to beat, it is a rarity.

      But you don't finish minor premier for nothing deserve the second chance.

      Until we meet again ….

        Shake_n_bake · 05/08/2019 at 10:34

        Tuff weekend for me but still smiling! Got back Sunday from just on 2 months away! I’ll definitely make a couple of moves this weekend. And then cross fingers 🤞

          Russty_ · 05/08/2019 at 23:48

          Well done mate for keeping it somewhat together while globetrotting around the world for the past 2 months, I would've just forgotten about it all and run amok,lol.
          Good luck for the rest of it.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/08/2019 at 22:07
