The Panic Room – Round 1

Published by Kev on

The Panic Room is back for 2020!

If this is your first time in the Panic Room, come on in everybody. No time to wipe your feet. Please keep 1.5m apart at all times and practice proper coughing and sneezing etiquette. This is a place full of my questionable SuperCoach wisdom and actual SuperCoach wisdom from people who know what they’re doing. It’s your one stop shop for articles posted throughout the week, team news, breakevens, references to a show 20 years past its prime, and maybe a bit of DFS when time permits. 

We’ve added a few new writers in the offseason and it’s resulted in a huge amount of content. To keep it all in one place we’ve got a master post of SuperCoach tools, information, and team reveals (pre-apocalypse) for you to wrap your eyeballs around

We’re facing an unprecedented season where none of us know which direction is up. How many trades we’ll have, what the best strategy is, or even if we’ll manage to get through the season without interruption. My advice? Just do the best you can. Chuck the rule book out the window and back your gut. You do you, fam #yolo

** UPDATE **

It’s all about the rookies, so let’s see who we’ve got.

DEFENCE
Jarrod Brander (DEF/FWD) 133k – With nothing in the 117k or 123k categories, Brander is the only backline cheapie we’ve got. Unless you’re going midprice madness down back he should be a lock for all teams.
Fischer Mcasey 184,400k – Key position. Had 12 touches (3 marks) for 47SC in Marsh 2
Brandon Zerk-Thatcher 189k – Another key position. 104SC against Geelong in Marsh 1 is positive, but probably not the norm.
Zach Guthrie 190.1k – 59 and 84 across the Marsh series. Not the worst option
Caleb Graham 207.8k – Literally the first I’m hearing of this guy. Another key defender so just go Zerk or Mcasey
John Noble 215.4k – Preseason favourite looks pretty safe in Collingwood’s back 6

MIDFIELD
Connor Budarick (MID / FWD) 106.9k
Justin McInerney 123.9k
Tyler Brown 123.9k

Are all cheap and bench fodder.

Tom Green 166.8k – Strong preseason and should continue to see plenty of mid time with Jackson Hately named among the emergencies.
Noah Anderson 202.8k and Matt Rowell (207.3k) – Picks 1 & 2 will debut in round 1. Rowell is the better play here.

RUCK
With no byes and no need for a playing R3, go cheap as possible so you have a captains loophole. I suggest Matt Conroy (102.4k). Also there’s no cheap rookie rucks anyway

FORWARD
Ben Cavarra 123.9k
Max King 123.9k
Sam Sturt 123.9k
Ben Davis 123.9k
Mitch Georgiades 130.8k
Ryan Gardner 136.4k
Billy Frampton 165.4k
Tyson Stengle 202k
Lachie Schultz 208.8k

Never say the SuperCoach Gods don’t have a sense of humour. The forward line is the hottest ticket in town for rookies this year, but on the flipside forward rookies are the WORST. It will be tempting to “go where the rookies are” and save some cash on the line but be prepared for one hell of a rollercoaster if you go down this route

While this goes against everything the Panic Room stands for, but there’s no need to totally panic and freak out (yet). The rolling lockout is still a thing so you only need to sort out your Richmond and Carlton players today and we’ll see the rest of the teams for weekend tonight. Selection for tonight was pretty straightforward, Pickett (MID – $123.9k) is in and should be a lock on your bench or M8. Sam Docherty will play as expected and I reckon Dusty’s stocks have risen as we chase “impact” players. Jayden Short ($349.3k) gets a spot at half back after Houli picked up a calf strain the other day and could be an option . The Blues will have new recruits Jack Martin and Jack Newnes make their debuts for the side, but have been decimated at the top with Eddie Betts joining Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay on the injury list. Cheapie defender Tom Williamson ($146.3k) misses out.

Elsewhere we’ve got a few confirmed debuts, Tom Green (MID – $166.8k) and Tyler Brown (MID – $123.9k) will start for GWS and Collingwood, respectively. I’ll be back later tonight or in the morning to update with full team news for the weekend.

BREAKING:

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

He may be coming off a broken leg but I reckon Tom Mitchell needs to come under serious consideration for your side. Shorter quarters should help with his lack of match fitness and I don’t need to go into how easily this guy can rack up the possessions. The 3,300 rule will continue as normal which could result in higher scores for other point pigs like Neale, Macrae, and Fyfe to name a few.

That’s all for the moment, community. Jump in the comments with your questions, concerns, and current lineups and don’t forget to join Lek tonight from 5.30pm AEST as teams drop

So – the big question of the day…who does 16 min terms benefit?
Do we look at Nic Nat suddenly?
Do big bodied midfielders (Fyfe, Cripps) gain in value while runners (Whitfield, Gaff) drop?
Will midfielders who can score (McClug, Bont) be even better picks?

Love to hear your thoughts, community. I expect this could define the season.

Jorg Ancrath

Also, the tag. Might be easier to go with a guy the whole game. So a guy like Neale who at times could be contained early on would come home with a wet sail and still bang out 120. Does he still do that?

kinglear009

Wow – that's a great point. You'd have to think it does mean the final quarter bullies don't quite clean up as much – the days of watching a Neale/Lloyd/Macrae save our skins in Q4 might not eventuate!

kinglear009

Team is in full panic mode – jettisoning players and plans quicker than the flying paper towels at Woolworths.
But…I have the following team which is a 'in case of no good rookies' which is…innovative. It hinges on Jayden Short – who avg 90 in the Marsh and 85 in his last healthy season for just $340k. If he fails, Doedee is the recovery player.

B: Laird, Sicily, Doch, Short, Zerk, Starcevich (Watson, B. Williams)
M: Neale, Fyfe (or Crippa), Kelly, Danger, Oliver, Rowell, Greene, Pickett (Robertson, Mahony, Brown)
R: Grundy, Jacobs (Cameron) – Jacobs is too much like a cow to ignore
F: Whitfield, Martin, Brayshaw, Smith, Taylor, Brander (Budarick, King)

As few rookies as possible on field. If things get really dire…
Jacobs > Naismith
Zerk > Gould
King > J.Stevens
It's radical….but I actually don't hate it.

kinglear009

One other thought – what's the strategy behind putting Naismith as R3, as I'm seeing a few teams moving towards?

Stirlsy

I'd say the strategy behind it is to play 6 ultra premo's in the guts. But really its about point scoring, but if Naismith goes down early in rounds 1 or 2 yr in strife bigtime unless you carry a big wallet into the season. To much risk for me.

kinglear009

That would be the case if Naismith was your R2, and that's risky. This seems the opposite – paying for a very, very premium bench option essentially!

Captain_Risky

I have gone Jacobs R2 and Naismith R3. I guess he's just an expensive rookie who should make +150K, whilst providing ruck cover. With 30 trades I felt I can do without Gawn, and with the potential short turnaround in games he's just insurance. I'm not sure it's logical to have so much on the bench, but I've gone for lots of value players elsewhere.

I didn't want Ceglar in the Fwd line, as there a plenty of better value options IMO..

This year will be like no other, so I thought I might as well throw logic out the window and do some experimenting!

John

Oliver and Deven Robertson ( or any other playing rookie)

or

McCluggage and Rowell

Russty_

I'd go option 2..reckon McCluggs can ave 100 and Rowell is pretty special, should score well.

Maverick_

I gave dusty his marching orders last night with no crowds present I thought he’d go missing too often he loves the big stage & the adrenaline with it but now SC have said it’s about impact players and not accumulators so now I am scrambling to get him back in before tonight. Gotta love this game

Russty_

Yep it's a bit of Pandemonium at the moment Mav, may as well have just started doing our teams yesterday haha, I just re-arranged my whole deal.

Maverick_

Yeah I was very happy with my team 36 hours ago. Now it is almost unrecognisable ha
I think just I’ve got too keep it simple and not over think it. The season may not finish anyway!

JesterJess

I traded Doc out for Dusty at the last minute. Im laughing and kicking myself. Hope you brought Dustino in

Maverick_

Yup i went dusty!
Unfortunately I went bont & dunks though and passed on Macrae, oops. Whose the best option out of Davis, georgiadis & Sturt for my last forward spot?

TommyC99

All of a sudden seeing a fair few fwd rookies debuting and not many defenders. Obviously have to wait till 6:25 for confirmation but at this stage fwd line looks like giving us more options. If this trend continues should we be rethinking going lighter in defense and bolstering our forward lines? Most of the preseason ive had Laird and Houston D1 and D2 but today i downgraded Houston to robbo, pushed Doch up to D2 which allowed me get an extra fwd premo (Dev smith F4). Just wanted to hear your thoughts community!

Captain_Risky

Yes, seems the case- Pickett & Bedford, Georgiades, Sturt, King, Buderick and counting..

We just need MID Rookies!!!

I don't have any forward rookies on field, might have to rethink, although the expensive def rookies look like better scorers with better job security.

Captain_Risky

Footy will provide a nice distraction tonight. I hope the shelves at Dan Murphy's aren't empty!

Maverick_

Option 1 : Oliver + D.Martin

Option 2 : Macrae + petracca/macpherson at F2

Option 1 means I miss Macrae in my side but now accumulators aren’t priority looking more at blokes like dusty & bont who impact Games more so than 40 touches..

John

Tossing up between these two sides (main differences are Goldy instead of Gawn, Sicily instead of Lloyd, Macpherson instead of Smith and also adding Cogs), any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

DEF- Laird, Sicily, Docherty, Williams, Brander, Gould EMG: Watson, Mclennan
MID- Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Cogs, Rowell, Pickett EMG: Hibberd, Brown, Robertson
RUC- Grundy, Goldstein EMG: Conroy
FWD- Whitfield, Martin, Smith, Taylor, Mahony, Budarick EMG: King, Sturt

$8.4k left

OR

DEF- Lloyd, Laird, Docherty, Zerk-Thatcher, Starcevich, Brander EMG: Watson, Gould
MID- Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Dangerfield, Oliver, Rowell, Green, Pickett EMG: McHenry, Brown, Robertson
RUC- Grundy, Gawn EMG: Comben
FWD- Whitfield, Martin, Macpherson, Taylor, Mahony, Budarick EMG: Sturt, King

$200 left

Shake n bake

B – Laird, Docherty, Roberton, Zerk, Starcevich, Brander (Watson, Gould)
M – Neale, Fyfe, Cripps, Macrea, Cogs, Narkle, Rowell, Green (Mead, Pickett, Budarick)
R – Grundy, Gawn (Cameron)
F – Whitfield, Macpherson, Brayshaw, Smith, Rankine, Taylor (Comben, King)

4k left should I get rid of Gawn to Jacobs and upgrade somewhere else or just leave it

The Ranger

I've gone mid-pricer heavy Shake so I'd say yeah but who knows mate, anything could happen!

Shake n bake

Not my team Ranger this is a guy using my name.

David

Unless you want a fwd donut in round 1 you need to some work on that team bro

Maverick_

Since these rule changes why am I seeing less and less sides without Whitfield… is it because he’s not an impact player? You’d think whit will still out average the forwards by 10-15pts

derek

more to do with unreliable rookies, and free up cash. Whitfield is very expensive

Maverick_

i tend to agree derek but don't want to miss out on those 120+ scores

derek

hasn't left my team

Maverick_

thoughts on dussty derek?
im not sold

derek

locked in. Only because there isn't anyone else. I had heeney early, but he needs to show me more than he has.

i can't see any scenario where Dusty won't be top 6 forward. Get him now

TommyC99

Lot of rookies extended bench. Nervous wait for tomorrow..

JEL

I've got 3 on the extended bench, fingers crossed they get a gig.

derek nolan

Dan Butler. $234k

anyone interested?

TommyC99

Will he get enough mid time?

Russty_

He's a small forward Tommy but will have some quiet games as they all do.

hedski

Can't be worse than Bewley who has somehow crept into my team

derek

nah. forget i said anything.

DavidV

Worked himself to the lofty heights of 234k after playing in a champion side… he's at st kilda now mate. Irrelevant player

Holty01

No Lipinski. Well that hurts me.

hedski

Hurts my draft team Holty, moved him to the bench and put Parfitt on and just realised he isn't named either.

derek

i was snapping him up in Draft leagues very late

hedski

I think I play you in Jocks JUNGLELAND this week Derek, good luck 👍
Just traded Parfitt to Darling.

derek

good luck.

i just bought in Kreuzer to match up against the Tiger's rucks. i'll be watching him from behind the couch tonight

The Ranger

Uh oh Derek…

Russty_

Just went down with an ankle, bad luck mate

hedski

Oh crap!!!
Bad luck there mate.

derek

yup. i traded out BigBoy for him

Russty_

I'll trade you Nicnat or Lycett if you offer someone tasty in return Derek.

TeeV

Spots left in this League if anyone is interested….196662

Yeahnah

Gawn + 123k rookie
or
Dusty and Naismith

My only dilemma..

EndoftheWorld

Who the heck is Tyler Brown and is he keeping someone's spot warm for a week or two?

TommyC99

Treloar and stevo both not playing is concerning for his JS

Russty_

Son of Gavin Brown I think, played well in the Marsh

derek

no Steven. I'm going with Petracca. To make the cash, no Rowell at M6. 3 cheap rookies on the field in the guts. lord give me strength.

Jorg Ancrath

I'm also not running Rowell. Also have Petracca. I won't even mention my rucks… Scary times.

Russty_

Good luck without Rowell fellas, not a big deal this year though if he's going nuts early, just punt some else for him..plenty of trades this year!

Jorg Ancrath

I'm going 7 premo deep in the mids, so will take Pickett 's score or rock in Green.

Holty01

Wow. Are they 7 ubers or some potential breakout hopefuls?

Russty_

Jeez I really thought Ash would've gotten the nod, looks like it's Cumming instead, just stuffed my def mid swing…I got rid of Ash and Starcevich..not convinced on Starcevich anyway.

TommyC99

Who'd ya replace them with russty?

Russty_

Cumming and Mcinerny from Swans Tommy

I ended up going full Guns N Rookies in the mids too eventually.

TommyC99

Not concerned with Mcinerneys JS? very low TOG in marsh 2. Surprised he even got a game tbh

Russty_

Nah not really, I'll just trade him out for someone who is playing haha

TommyC99

Any spare leagues for me? Usually finish in the top 5k, was 2k couple of seasons back!

TeeV

Jump in Tommy…196662

Russty_

Doesn't look like it …isn't that what we're paying for?…sheesh Fanfooty is better and that's free

Holty01

That’s what I thought. Oh well, they won’t be getting $20 from me this year

Jorg Ancrath

Glad I went Doc. Looks very very good. Dusty loving the empty stadium, don't have him. Cripps vc looking questionable.

derek

Cripps has to carry the whole team. i changed in the last hour and jumped on Titch. Cripps a great player, but his team is poor.

Jorg Ancrath

Could be a great call Derek. Hopefully he bursts out of the gates after HT. I'm on Titch al also. Reckon he gets going like he never left. Ball magnet.

Billioux

Poor is very kind Derek, and i am rusted on navy blue. We could'nt hit a barn with a hand full of wheat. 🙁

Billioux

Yeah he was impressive

The Ranger

McKay, McGovern, Betts, Curnow, Martin, Gibbons…handy fwd line if you can ever get them all on the park at the same time

NoLanguage96

Jeez defensive rooks under 140k are thin….. Anyone apart from Tobe Watson??

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Williams May be

Will know 2mrw night.

Russty_

Williams, Gould(at some point), Brander, otherwise it's the more expensive guys.

David

Not even Tobe bro. Check the afl site watson is an emerg

NoLanguage96

Yeah it's very slim pickings. Might have to just pick Gould and use him as the loophole doughnut

Russty_

Yes mate, same here, very happy hope Cripps can go 130 plus, that'd be great

Jorg Ancrath

No Martin for me, sadly. Was locked prior to covid, but I made a rule not to spend more than $500k for a fwd or def.

hedski

Yep. Vc on Dusty

Russty_

God I hope the whole season isn't like this…feels like watching a 2's game or under 18 game for the lack of atmosphere, guess we should be grateful there's any footy at all. Blues are doing well I reckon considering they're up against the Tigers, nothing to be ashamed of there.

GreendaleFC

I think my team is just about locked in for the weekend. I have exactly $0 spare which makes me a bit nervous.

DEF: Laird, Sicily, Houston, Docherty, Roberton, Zerk-Thatcher, (Starcevic, Brander)

MID: Macrae, Neale, Dunkley, D.Smith, Rowell, Green, Pickett, McInerney, (Brown, Robertson, Budarick)

RUC: Grundy, Gawn, Comben

FOR: Whitfield, Martin, MacPherson, Petracca, Bedford, Cavarra, (Taylor, King)

David

No way that squad is within the budget

Derek

Only 3 Uber mids. Probably is in the salary cap. Most start 5 min

Derek

I posted earlier that Docherty would finish top 3 defender. He might end up even better.

First time I’ve ever owned him. He is good.

Jorg Ancrath

I had doubts but the price was too good to ignore. He is still a gun.

JEL

Was solid in my SC sides until his injuries, glad I jumped back on, though it's still early days.

David

And before that you spent weeks telling everybody he was too much of a risk

Derek

His Marsh 2 game was a ripper. Until then he wasn’t in my team

Russty_

Did anyone pick the human meatball this year?…he's a gun.

Holty01

I did have him but only for a short period of time as I felt he wouldn’t be top 12. He did look very good though

Russty_

Yeah understandable Holty, he could be a late season pick if needing a pod replacement.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Got him in draft

Russty_

Yeah I got him in my other draft team too trig, also had Newman and Houli…lol

David

Don't get too excited bro it's not they had AFL level opposition

Russty_

I wouldn't pick him in my early regular season team, maybe later as a pod pick, he seems pretty reliable now after playing a full season last year.

COREYSC

Got Prestia in draft

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Has doch been out for 2 years?

Wouldn't know it!

Russty_

He's all class Trig, just like riding a bike for him.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Just so clean with the pill

David

10 minutes into the 1st quarter I swear I heard the palms slapping against the foreheads of the wally's that reckoned he was too much of a risk. They may as well pack up and go home I reckon

Jorg Ancrath

Crippa robbed.

Russty_

Yeah Andy I was hoping for more, think he made a few errors in the last though, hope Grundy can dominate English now cause 112 doesn't feel like enough for the VC

Jorg Ancrath

Yea few clangers. Do I go Fyfe or Neale as captain now?

Russty_

Don't think Bombers or Hawks tag do they Jorg?…I'd go Fyfe cause I think he's less likely to get shut down.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

English part of the hot diggity dogs

Gonna call it now reckon he will break even with Reg 2mrw.

Russty_

Hope he goes ok for ya this year Trig, I gutted out but went with Saucey boy instead, just hope no Mummy interference now.

David

Nah mate English will outscore that hasbeen Grundy by at least 20. Pittonet gave Reg a bath, wish I had him on the bench he'll play a lot now that the tractor has broken down again.

Tibor

Hmmm

Tibor

He’s always been desperately unlucky. He was drafted by Carlton.

Russty_

KFC Supercoach stats / live scores non functional tonight…would've been nice to know in advance it wouldn't be working at all.

The Ranger

Pickett’s gonna be a rippa rookie

Russty_

You're a rippa rookie

Derek

I think he is Champion Data’s new pet love

Nick

Need some help with forward rookies. Who do we think has best job security and scoring potential out of Cavarra, Sturt, Bedford and Georgiades.
Thanks community!

Russty_

No idea about those guys Nick..do you already have Brander, Budarick, Rankine, Taylor and King? Brander's named in the 22, Rankine would be if he wasn't slightly injured, King plays but probs doesn't score much..like Giorgediasasses

Nick

Yep got all those guys except Rankine, will wait to trade him in once he’s on the bubble as I don’t trust his body. Agreed on king but I like his job security. But still need 1 more from the 4 I mentioned for my f8.

Russty_

Georgi probs has the best js at the moment I reckon.

David

Billy Frampton mate named at CHF JS is secure as …..something thats really secure. Rankine slips a disc when he farts. He has heaps of talent but more fragile than Leks ego

David

A couple of Leagues with participants from last year that haven't responded to the email invite 664146 and 982351 Most teams in both have scored 455 after the Tigers training session against carlton. 10 and 11 spots available

BJSO

Game on

Moose

I'm in too

Dan

Going cold on the idea of having Dylan Roberton in the team. I was wondering if Cumming might be a better option? Or is his j/s uncertain?

Therealsharkmove

Wouldn't his JS is great whilst Zac Williams isn't in the side. Still, if he plays well enough there's probably a spot for both. Riverton would also have to be careful of Carlisle

Therealsharkmove

*Roberton

The Jinx

I'm in the same boat. I'm tinkering between Roberton or Noble, anyone knows how good Nobles JS is?

The Ranger

I thought Quaynor would start the season ahead of Noble but it's not the case so he must be doing something the coaches like.

JohnDJ59

Have the same 4 playing.

David

Every team in every league I'm in has those guys

Derek

The most popular owned Defender, Midfielder and Forward all scored well tonight.

Everyone goes to bed happy

Whitey

With Kruezers injury does it give De Koning a shot or does Pinnonet come in for him. Any Carlton people out there know anything about them?

Cheers

Teague Train

Pinnonet will get the nod, TDK is to young and if he gets a gig will play forward if anything

Russty_

It's Pittonet and I reckon Naismith might be another option for around the same price…not sure who's better out of the 2

The Ranger

Hey NDD, how confident are you that Rivers gets a game soon?
Tempted to park him on the bench for loopholing and to save a later trade.

The Ranger

Mid rookies are bloody thin on the ground too.

Derek

I like his DPP

Perfect loophole

The Ranger

Green and Pickett and then not much more

The Ranger

TMitch and Sturt or Clarry and K.Pickett?

RazzleDazzle

Titch and Sturt for mine

The Ranger

Still can't bloody decide.
Worried Titch will go down again or miss games if the fixture gets condensed.

Stacky23

Team has changed so much over last few weeks but think ive settled on a lineup
Def: Laird Ryan Docherty Roberton Noble BZT (Starcevich, Williams)
Mid: Macrae Cripps Dunkley Bont Oliver Rowell Green Pickett (Brown, Robertson, Budarick)
Ruc: Grundy Nic Nat (Comben)
Fwd: Martin Rozee Brayshaw Smith Brander Taylor (King Sturt)
Got 111k left which could turn Rozee into Greene or someone but feel with almost two trades every week can afford to take the punt on players like him and Nic nat
Thoughts
Could also go rozee to whitfield if i go oliver to mccluggage

Russty_

Good side Stacky..I had Cogs and McCluggage in my mids up until yesterday, then decided to eliminate that risk and go with Titch and Bont instead, rather than hope and see how McCluggs goes towards being a top premo, now I already know I've got 5 in there.
With almost unlimited trades this year, some experimenting can be done but you'll lose points waiting for the results on players like that, compared to other teams.
I would try to get Whitfield in there if you could…Dusty showed last night why it's good to start with a few good premos on each line.

Derek

That is a lot of big doggies

COREYSC

If impact players are going to be better should we be taking guys like Fyfe/Bont over a Neale/Titch type player?

The Jinx

I have 3 of those you mentioned, tossing if I should stay with Merrett as POD or go with Fyfe. Will depends on which rookies will play this weekend.

COREYSC

Hmm I thinking on taking Fyfe over Neale

Russty_

I don't think that means guys like Neale and Titch will score any less points for what they're already doing, I just think it means they'll go back to scoring extra points for acts that change games or change the lead or a winning goal on the siren etc, like they used to, and that depends on the scorer's opinions.
I remember once when they scored a winning goal on the siren 45 points…rdiculous.

COREYSC

Well yeah Walters did that a few times last year!

Russty_

They actually reduced the amount of points they award out of thin air in the last few years…too many people probably saying "WTF"?

Derek

I reckon stitch will still go close to a 50 touch game at some stage this season

I’m looking at the scoring that everything is just 20% more than last year, still have 3300 points, but less time, disposals etc

A big number x20% gets bigger than a small number x20%

It will hurt the high TOG players. Hurn etc they just have less time relative to someone who would usually be off field for 5 mins a quarter to rest, they might not rest as much

Some rookies TOG might be very low

HallyMate

Does anyone know anything about Frampton’s job security?

Russty_

Not sure mate but I hope for the people who have him that Frampton comes alive.

TelescopicCox

Stuck on options in a mid price team structure:

A) Robbo / Bont / Greene – 200k bank for correction trades
B) Laird / Bont / Macpherson – 5K bank
C) Howe / Bont / Greene – 30k bank
D) Crisp / Oliver / Greene – 10k bank

David

Hi Guys, when do head to head matches start for the 18 and 10 leagues ? Thanks

hedski

Round one, matchups will come up at the completion of pies vs dogs.

Stupid Coach

Which of the following two options should I go with for my defence and foward line:

Option 1: DEF – Lloyd, Hurn, Docherty, Roberton, + 4 rookies
FWD – Whitfield, Dusty, D Smith, Brayshaw (Free)+ 4 rookies
Option 2: DEF – Lloyd, Houston/Crisp, Docherty, Roberton/Noble + 4 rookies
FWD – Whitfield, Dusty, Smith, Patton (Haw) + 4 rookies

Derek

I like option 1 forwards and option 2 defence

Is that possible?

Stupid Coach

Thanks Derek. Yes, it is definitely possible and leaves me a bit in the salary to the point that I could even go Stewart, Laird or Sicily instead of Houston. Should I stick with Houston or upgrade to Stewart, Laird or Sicily instead.

Derek

I’m actually starting with Laird, Sicily, Houston, Docherty

They will all be there abouts the same, but if I had to pick one it would be Laird. He has already been a top 6 defender, the other 2 still have to do it

I like Lloyd, but I can’t fit both Whitfield and Llloyd in
