No jock no crouching no interest

    Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 17:14

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out to Negativeland.

    Blueprime · 30/08/2019 at 23:18

    Your loss, son. I found this site to be superior this year than in previous seasons. Cheers.

    DavidC · 31/08/2019 at 11:06

    No interest, yet here you are checking out the site! Haha, makes sense … not.

    Patch · 01/09/2019 at 23:03

    I'm #TeamHiggo myself

      The Ranger · 02/09/2019 at 10:02

      I worry about Wayno.
      Thoiught I saw him squid fishing off St,Kilda pier a few weeks ago but when I shouted "Wayno!" at him and ran toward him he scarpered.

Larry · 30/08/2019 at 16:44

Never started with the Bont before, reckon I will in 2020.
Will start Cripps again. Fyfe too. Maybe Oliver if there is value.
Sticking with Grundy, Gawn.
Whitfield, if still a defender, maybe Doc too.
All I know in the fwd line is R.Gray will never appear again. I don't care if he averages 250 pre season, still not happening.

NDD · 30/08/2019 at 16:58

Doc and Hurn MacRae and Cripps Grawndy Danger and Dunkley

Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 17:18

Hi Lek, Def, Doch for sure if he has a full preseason, possibly Lachie weller, Caleb Daniel..Doedee
Mid, Dunks, Titch, Treloar, Worpel, Zorko, Yeo, possibly McLuggage, Jordan Dawson
Ruck, Grundy Gawn, but think Marshall would also be a good starter.
Fwd, Fwds will be hard …maybe Parish, C.Cameron.

    NDD · 30/08/2019 at 17:41

    Amazing how different we all are Russty. but I am going for the mids who will be there at seasons end if i can afford them . MacRae Cripps Oliver Neale Dunkley Tich The last two mids could well be out of Treloar worpel or Pendles after the byes Forwards are going to be tough possibly only Danger at present Grawndy 100%

      Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 17:51

      Thinking the same mate but we all need to save money somewhere at the start, gotta get those playing rookies right from the start also.

    Patch · 01/09/2019 at 23:04

    Weller and Doedee are big picks. What;s the thinking there?

    Love Zork and McCluggage, too.

      Russty_ · 01/09/2019 at 23:28

      Weller and Doedee, if fit and firing could average 90 +, but I'll probably end up going 3 guns and 3 rooks, backline has been my weakest line for the last few years so might even stack it a bit more next season Patchynator.

SamuraiPizzaCat · 30/08/2019 at 17:40

Def – Sam Docherty, Lachie Whitfield
Mid – Patrick Cripps, Tom Mitchell
Ruc – Brodie Grundy, Max Gawn
Fwd – Patrick Dangerfield, Devon Smith

KeenButClueless · 30/08/2019 at 19:38

Def McKenna Rance
Mid mccluggage walsh
Ruck. Grundy Gawn
Fwd Martin Menegola

Izak Rankine might be a lock at F5 or F6.

gator59 · 30/08/2019 at 21:05

Doc,Titch, Grawndry, Hunter Clark is going to be a gun, T Mac might be worth considering, Menegola, Dev Smith, Hanners is in the mix, Aaron Hall for mid cheapy, Consider Narkle, Jack Watts forward, Don't know how much Rhylee West will be worth but worth a look, Tom Doedee, Fancy pants Rance, Callum Ward, Sam Coke Murray, Marlion Pickett

    Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 21:33

    Was thinking the same maybe about Clark and Pickett Gator, Menegola should be a cheap fwd next year, not touching Hanners, Hall or Watts or Rance with a bargepole though, will Murray be back in time for us to have a look at him in the JLT?

      gator59 · 31/08/2019 at 17:55

      Yeah agree with you Russty on some of them like Hall Hanners Watts and Rance they will be cheap and Murray has served his time I think but may not be at the pies.. Could be another good fit at the life less Dees

    NDD · 30/08/2019 at 22:19

    TMac very interesting.If he gets a chop out and learns to kick straight , maybe. Is Bruce a chance at demonland?

      gator59 · 31/08/2019 at 17:58

      I reckon Dees are in with a chance of getting Bruce.. All depends on what you guys have got to offer… Maybe T Mac and a 2nd round pick sounds about right

        NDD · 31/08/2019 at 18:26

        Must be something in the water at Colac We probably didn't learn enough from Donna Marshall would be the only one we would be interested in for Tmac plus your first pick lol

          gator59 · 31/08/2019 at 19:52

          WTF would you do with three big Ruckman.. Besides you couldn't have both Gawn and Pruess playing Seconds

            NDD · 01/09/2019 at 13:15

            Marshall to fullforward easily Absolutely too good for the saints

              Russty_ · 01/09/2019 at 14:19

              Reckon he'd be a waste playing anywhere but number 1 Ruck Neil, he really shone in the role this year and made it his own.

COREYSC · 30/08/2019 at 22:40

Defence: S.Docherty, Z.Williams
Midfield: T.Mitchell, C.Ward
Rucks: Grundy, Gawn
Forwards: T.Greene, I.Heeney

Need to see a full pre-season and good scoring from Ward but he could be a bargain. I also think (I cannot believe i’m Going back to the Well for the fourth time!) Isaac Heeney will be freed up with Buddy, Reid, Blakey and Hayward up forward Heeney could be released in the midfield with enough vocal point forwards

    Russty_ · 30/08/2019 at 22:56

    Hey Corey, I'd leave Ward alone mate…players get older and eventually they break, especially the ones who are renowned for being hard nuts, they tend to break worse than others..Cogs should be fairly cheap if you want a Giant in your mids.

      COREYSC · 31/08/2019 at 08:31

      That’s a fair call Russty, probably not a bad idea to avoid all GWS players haha with all their injuries but the up side in terms of points is always so attractive

    Patch · 01/09/2019 at 23:05

    Greene and Heeney are two I absolutely won't be touching to start with, but having said that I'll be starting with Heeney because I'm a gooddam sucker.

      Russty_ · 01/09/2019 at 23:41

      No Heeney for me next year, he can go eat his own poop for all I care. Not until he becomes a mid/ fwd and he's been teasing us with that the last 3 years. ..and actually plays as a mid, he just goes missing too much in games though, he can bugger the hell off.
      There will probably be bugger all forwards to start with next year at a reasonable price so we could have to suck it up and choose some true spuds on that line.

        DavidJ · 04/09/2019 at 17:14

        Caleb Daniel and Charlie Curnow should be cheap, Harry McKay will be 10-15 pts p/game better next year Marshall might retain fwd status Crows will unveil a bargain fwd and Blakey will create headlines in Sydney. There'll be plenty of fwds available don't panic

      Michael · 23/09/2019 at 13:35

      Truer words never spoken. Heeney never again! I am going try and stick to that rule next year.

Blueprime · 30/08/2019 at 23:28

Whitfield Williams Fyfe Dangerfield Grundy Gawn Dunkley Worpel.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 31/08/2019 at 12:10

7 Reasons Why would be a good start

Need to change Brayshaw but.

Then pick the top scorer on each line based on history build rest of team around this setup.

Worked pretty well in 2019..

Luke · 31/08/2019 at 17:47

Defenders: Lloyd and Docherty
Midfielders: Mitchell and Macrae
Rucks: Grundy and Gawn
Forwards: Dangerfield and T.Kelly/Dunkley/Marshall/Boak if any of those 4 are still forward eligible. Otherwise, who knows? Maybe Walters?

Russty_ · 01/09/2019 at 14:16

Good to hear Roughy has joined the Saints in a role including list management and developing and mentoring our key forwards, hopefully he can teach them how to kick straight!

gvaa1 · 01/09/2019 at 21:22

still working on my choices <img src="https://s04.flagcounter.com/mini/Jkzv/bg_FFFFFF/txt_DEDEDE/border_FFFFFF/flags_0/.jpg&quot; width="1"/>

Patch · 01/09/2019 at 23:07

Damo has me bullish on Ethan Hughes (price pending) for a look-in,

DEF: Docherty, Daniel Rich
MID: Titch, Neale
RUC: Grundy … ???? Witts? Gawn? Goldy? Draper? Who knows!
FWD: God knows who Champion Data give us, but I'll take a rusty spoon and a cabbage at this stage.

Holty01 · 02/09/2019 at 07:31

Docherty Lloyd
Titch Cripps
Grawndy more then likely
Danger and ? doubt Boak, Dunkley, Marshall & Kelly will be forwards next season so might throw a random out there and say Lipinski.

The Ranger · 02/09/2019 at 10:11

Def – Lloyd + Doc
Mid – Dunkley + Titch
Ruk – Grundy + Marshall
Fwd – The top two fwd/mid DPP's

Big G · 02/09/2019 at 11:17

Buddy anyone?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/09/2019 at 14:31

    No buddy way

    Michael · 23/09/2019 at 13:32

    You'd have to be Buddy mad. Sorry not sorry.

gator59 · 02/09/2019 at 20:12

Anyone for Bailey Dale as a FWD

    Russty_ · 02/09/2019 at 22:18

    Hi mate, he's a little bit up and downy scorewise for me, but I'll be keeping an eye on him in the JLT to see how he goes.

Russty_ · 02/09/2019 at 22:15

Hey Trig, maybe re-post your expressions of interest in Trig's Happy ending in here?
Think there's about 12 or so on board at the moment.
1st Final is this Thursday so let Trigga know guys if you'd like to partake.
Last year there were 30 plus participating so hopefully we can get similar numbers this year.

    gator59 · 02/09/2019 at 23:26

    I'm in for sure Russty and Trgga

      Nifty · 03/09/2019 at 00:24

      How do you join up?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/09/2019 at 10:40

    I've sent it to Lek.

    Just waiting on him to put on website. 👍

      Shake_n_bake · 03/09/2019 at 11:14

      Would it be on this page?

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 03/09/2019 at 11:20

        Should appear as a new article..

        With all the lowdown how to play and the link to enter team

    Lekdog · 03/09/2019 at 11:51

    We've got a post up now for it

Iamme · 03/09/2019 at 02:38

Def – Doch Roberton
Mid – Tich MacRea
Ruc- Grundy Marshall
For – D.Smith Danger

    Lekdog · 03/09/2019 at 11:51

    Roberton, forgot about him. Cheap but risky

      Michael · 23/09/2019 at 13:34

      Roberton I like too but need to see how his ticker is. Doc I want to wait and see how he starts, poor bloke is injury prone and just praying he gets through pre season and JLT if he gets a run.

Jesse · 03/09/2019 at 12:28

Def: Docherty, Byrne-Jones (second half of the year outstanding)
Mid: Titch, Macrae
Ruc: Grundy, Gawn
Fwd: Danger, E. Curnow (if continues to play in the guts)

DavidJ · 04/09/2019 at 17:22

Silvagni, Stocker, Docherty, C.Curnow, Fisher should all generate enough points to hold their place and make 100k before the byes.
Liam Jones could be a smokey if Doch plays
Those that aren't blue would include the unfortunately named Thomas Mitchell

Brn · 05/09/2019 at 19:04

Sam walsh to best second year blues

Westy · 14/09/2019 at 14:38

D – Docherty, Stewart
M – Dunkley, T Mitchell
R – Grundy, Gawn
F – Dangerfield, Marshall

    Michael · 23/09/2019 at 13:30

    Marshall will be ruck only, most likely but will also be one of my first-picked fwds if not.

Michael · 23/09/2019 at 13:31

Depending on DPP status:

D: Lloyd, Stewart (I want to see how Doc starts first – may be a future upgrade)
M: Mitchell, Dunkley
R: Grundy, Gawn
F: Dangerfield, Dev Smith

Assuming Dunks becomes mid only, and Danger retains fwd/mid DPP.
