first time podcast listener, and last time too.

Russty_

That's a shame jhsjklfshdl#h…we'll all miss you terribly.

s c tragic

AAAh he never said goodbye.

COREYSC

Hey community it’s Preliminary Finals time! And I need some advice it’s hard to drop blokes when they went well on the weekend and hard to drop Defence guns who had bad weeks so I’m looking for guidance

3 Trades Left 3K in Bank
Whitfield, Z.Williams, Lloyd, Laird, Hurn, Sicily (Naish, Smith)
Macrae, Fyfe, Bont, Cripps, Neale, B.Crouch, M.Crouch, Duncan (Hately, Snelling, K.Dunkley)
Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
Dunkley, Marshall, Dangerfield, Greene, Boak, T.Kely (Young, Gardner)

Russty_

Hi Corey, great finishing side..don't think you need to do anything but you could probably afford to sell either Hately or Snelling this week for the cash so you have more options if you make it to next week.
Also Marshall's gotta go this week if he doesn't get up…cheers mate.

COREYSC

Cheers mate, it will give me 140 odd K I don’t really know what I’ll do with it though should I focus on defence or go for a Oliver/Trelaor and then Dusty removing say Duncan and B.Crouch and keep Matt Crouch

Russty_

Yeah B,Crouch or Duncan to Treloar could be a good move, Treloar has more to play for now than Oliver I think.
Reckon your defence is fine, hopefully Hurn lifts and Sicily maintains his form from last week.
Are you mostly about Leagues or overall? If you're in a tough matchup this week, I'd go Treloar.

COREYSC

I’m in 5 prelim finals and I’m ranked 2,140 so definitely leagues but I’ve been coming home very strong which is great!
2,537
2,353
2,569
2,484
See Duncan has Carlton in the final round haha that’s why I’m a little lost haha
If I got to Duncan to Treloar and Downgrade Hately this week it leaves me with 30 odd K to upgrade B.Crouch in the final round to Dusty for the final round
Oliver has caught my eye because the Dees have Sydney which is a winnable game and North Melbourne to finish

COREYSC

I can make this move work
Downgrade Hately
Neale to Treloar
Then next week
B.Crouch to Oliver
And keep Duncan hoping he goes big against Carlton It’s a tough run home for the Lions I think against geelong and then Grand Final Neale tagged by Graham I assume just think Oliver can go bigger and same with Treloar this is the only way I can get both Treloar and Oliver otherwise I have to go for a discount like Dusty, thoughts?

Tony

I wouldn’t trade Neale mate, I reckon he’ll go big against geelong this week, and Richmond’s midfield is actually quite poor so he can easily score well there in a potential loss.

I’d be getting rid of brad crouch this week personally

COREYSC

Just means I can’t get Oliver and Treloar so i’ll Have to go for Dusty and Treloar instead

Russty_

Go with your gut mate, I'm hesitant to advise one way or the other cause both moves could pay off or backfire haha
If you think Neale will struggle though, maybe that's the way to go.

COREYSC

Thanks for your guidance mate, I’ll go with my gut I’ll Try and get Trelaor and Oliver and hope duncan goes big against Carlton

SamuraiPizzaCat

Personally think trading Neale out is crazy, his score was low last week due to the tag. But then again who knows what will happen, maybe you're right!

COREYSC

Haha it’s been a crazy year mate and I’ve just got a feeling about it, but we’ll have to wait and see!

Sam_01

Solid team Corey, always hard to say when your sideways trading premos
Jezza Cameron plays suns last round could be worth keeping a trade for that, also if deboer comes back this week the doggys boys may be in trouble!

COREYSC

Thanks Sam definitely a few things to think about it that’s for sure, I will keep that one trade in mind for sure!

The Ranger

If you were going to trade out one of Witherden or Blakely which one would it be?

Russty_

Tough one Ranger, after Wither's performance last week I'd think keep him but it was only the Gold Coast, both pretty inconsistent though, Blakely gets you more money I guess.

The Ranger

With Geelong and Richmond to come you'd think the ball might be in his neck of the woods a bit…I've stuck with him all year so he bloody owes me a couple of good scores!

Sam_01

Flick Blakely, they have both been poo this year though

The Ranger

Tell me about it. I started with Witherden hoping he would have a break out year and got Blakely in as a bit of gamble when I was already behind the 8 ball. Once you start digging a hole it's sometimes hard to stop….

Sam_01

I was so close to starting witherden and close to bringing in Blakely glad I dodged them both haha

Sam_01

Solid work on the POD fellas glad it’s being kept up while many coaches years are over
As an optimistic coach I’m eying in a top 10 finnish haha
Really considering trading bont or macrae if deboer comes in this week and then picking up josh kelly as he plays dogs then Gc!
Who will cop the tag? Or is it more worthwhile holding them and flicking someone like Mcrouch for jezza cameron next week when he plays suns?

Loop

Hey guys. Got a prelim in my money league. Looking for some devine guidance.
$46,900 and 3 trades
DEF: Houli, Whitfield, Williams, Lloyd, Laird, Hurn, (Logue, Gardner)
MID: Macrae, Fyfe, Dunkley (M/F), Oliver, Cripps, Neale, Merrett, Sloane, (Clarke, Bewley, Scott)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn, (Bines)
FWD: Danger(M/F), Greene, Boak, Walters(M/F), Heeney(M/F), Kelly(M/F), (L.Hill, R.Young)

Fella i'm playing has 6 unique to me, including both crouch boys and marshall. I see that as my biggest prob.
Really love to see some options on this team
Cheers

Russty_

Hi Loop, maybe just punt Sloane if he doesn't play and keep 2 for next week.

Loop

Someone has the same name as me – I'll change.

Russty_

Maybe make an intense debate account Loop, then you can choose your own unique name and no one else can copy it.
Well done this year btw.

redherringfc

Dunkley in the mids is a great luxury. It gives you fantastic options.

Pretty sure it’ll cost 2 trades, but Greene to J Kelly could be a great move.

Brn

Still a shot at finishing top 10 overall. 2 trades left which i intend to use this week. No cash in bank.

Brodie smith my weakest point. Would you trade him to houli, bryne jones, or hurn?

Other options are merrett or m crouch (despite last game) to josh kelly/treloar, but thats pretty sideways.

Last option is to get l parker, cunnington, or mundy as a bench loophole option.

Thoughts?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

DBJ

gvaa1
Tommo09

O’Meara and Daniel => Sloane and Hawkins/Walters
OR
Daniel and Scott => Dunkley and a rookie

These will be my last two trades heading into a right prelim final so it’s all in

Russty_

Option 1 looks good to me Tommo, with Hawkins, Walters spudded it against Stkilda, something wrong there.

COREYSC

If someone told me at the start of the season that after not starting with either in my side I would end up with James Sicily and Toby Greene in my side I would’ve called them crazy, just been one of those years!

Russty_

Hey Corey, I have Sicily and wish I had Greene now instead of spud Westhoff…Greene is a jet when playing midfield.

COREYSC

Yeah Greene has been superb but in the saying that with Josh Kelly returning I’m Not sure how that affects him in the final two rounds

Russty_

I wouldn't worry about it, he's named on the ball, ruck rover or rover

Haze

Big prelim this week and have 6 unique players to my opposition. Have 3 trades left so going Answerth to maybe Houli or DBJ. This would give me full team. However wondering if I do sideways trade to get Josh Kelly or go Boak to Worpel. As opponent has Worpel and he is playing the Suns. Help needed
Team is
Lloyd, Whitfield, Williams, Hurn, Laird, Answerth
Neale, Cripps, Macrae, Bont, Oliver, Zorko, Fyfe, Treloar
Gawn and Grundy
Danger, Marshall, Boak, Dunkley, Heeney, Walters

Streaker

Last trade Treloar or Dunkley thoughts please.

Russty_

Maybe Treloar just in case Dunks gets tagged by DeBoer if he's back this week.

Derek

JR SURVIVOR CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS GROUP

This is it. The final 3 has been decided.

Instant Service and Punt Rd Paupers weren't able to keep up this week and have been eliminated. Great effort fellas, came up just short when the whips were cracking.

Our 3 finalists all deserve to be there.

Kezzam (2495), GreendaleFC (2479) and yucky (2443) have been consistently near the top of the group every week. yucky & Kezzam are both ranked inside the top 1000 and GreendaleFC not far behind. It's going to be a fantastic battle this weekend.

I suggest the 3 of you set up a 'rivalry' to keep an eye on each other. it is unique having two opponents to contend with instead of just one.

Good luck.

loop

Theres only a few (four??) differences between Yucky and myself, Greendale has quite of few PODs. Will be sweating on the fitness of Sloane and Marshall I think.
Awesome concept Derek. Thanks again for adding interest to the season.
There are a lot of community members ranked way above me, lucky that they didnt enter!

Derek

Shout out to those left in the Cash League i set up (JR CASH LEAGUE)

I scraped into 6th place, but didn't last long when the big guns came out to play.

This week's preliminary Finals see:

Such is Fyfe vs One Touch Wonders

Finnius fylers vs Scaries VIII

The projected scores are all big numbers and the matches are sure be close.

This league is Winner take all, good luck fellas.

Russty_

Tough League that one Neil, I finished 4th and got bundled out in straight sets by Dazza and Trigga, I'll have to bring it next year to be a shot at the end, team just not good enough this year, cheers mate.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Thanks mate.
Probably not ideal to be heading overseas for two weeks eh? 🙉🏝

Derek

The only league I’m still alive in is Elite of the Elite. Some really great players in that league plus Patch and Lekdog.

I got lucky last week and had to play NDD. Even with Dusty and Lycett out I still managed a win. I’ll be smashed this week for sure.

My team was like yours, every week had to trade out a premium or took a Coniglio Zero or had Danger C when he scored 22, even managed a donut one week when I forgot to put Hurn on the field.

My biggest mistakes was to get Westhoff and Gunston when they were very cheap (Gunston scored 144 the next week, but the rest was misery). At the time I was tossing up to get Marshall and Dunkley, but the only reason I didn’t was the darn Round 13 bye. I couldn’t risk anymore saint or dog players, no more bye planning for me next year.

Russty_

Where you off to bud?…happy trails, stay safe and make sure you have internet access while you're away lol

Daniel

2 trades left, 90k in the bank. Time to get rid of Caleb Daniel.
Choice are Worpel, Walters or Greene and it's all about winning the prelim not ranking for me.
Leaning towards Worpel, what's the thoughts community?

Thanks

Big G

Any update on the Sloane and Marshall injuries

Russty_

Hi Big G I read that Sloane is listed as a test but also that Adelaide were confident he'd play, specialist cleared him of any eye damage, no mention of Marshall being injured or a test so he could be good to go.

Derek

He didn’t play the second half last week because of fear he had reinsured his eye socket that he did a few years ago. Nothing to do with concussion.

If the eye socket is fine he should play.

Maybe they will get his Batman mask out

loop

Early on I had you as my top pick to win Survivor NDD, I thought that you were going along quite nicely.

Daniel

Yeah that's my only concern with Greene, what's the effect of Kelly back in?

Russty_

Well, it could be a devastating effect if Greene gets switched back to the fwd line, he doesn't score anywhere near as well when playing fwd.
Kelly and DeBoer potentially coming back into the mids this week…wait and see though.

Russty_

For those in tight matchups this week, with very few uniques between your opponents, I think trading out Lloyd could be an option, he's only averaged 86 for the last 3 rounds.

redherringfc

1 trade left. Lloyd to Whitfield?

Nah, my balls aren’t that big.

Holty01

I’ll be back Neil for sure. Been a fantastic competition.

Tofa

Hi fellas, $200k and 4 trades left, need a finals win and only playing for a league win.
I'm all premo except one midfielder. options r:
1. paint the fence and bring in a hero like Treloar or Bont.
2. bring in a cheaper super-premo on a hot run and replace a crappy premo.
3. upgrade two crappy under-performing premos and leave Hind on the field.
my upgrade options r Hurn, cunnington, lloyd and boak… (wtf happened to these guys? r they salvagable?)

thanks lads.

Russty_

Maybe cunners to Treloar, the other 3 might come good hopefully..Boak was tagged last week, Bont could get tagged too.

Shake_n_bake

Definitely be back next yr Neil. Tnx for the invite. Always great competition.

redherringfc

Any chance of an invite next year, Neil? That is if you get a dropout.

Based on this year I’ll struggle to make it out of the bottom 2, but (just like this time last year) I know what went wrong and I’m sure I’ll fix it next year.

I’ve enjoyed following your comments this year. Good luck if you made into any finals in other leagues this year.

Russty_

Not selling yourself all that well there mate haha, what was your team name this year?
It's largely about the timing when entering Leagues, gotta be around at the right time cause they fill up quick.

hi..

Patch

Gday Files!

JB

B Crouch to J Kelly and B Smith to Sicily thoughts?

Patch

Not sure about bringing in Sicily but the first one might be a go.
