The Panic Room – Round 3

Published by Matt Forrest on

Welcome back to another stint in Friday’s favourite location: The Panic Room. This week, Kev is panicking massively after the Hawks dismantled his beloved Tigers, so I have taken over for him just this once.

There’s no time to waste on a Friday afternoon, especially now the pubs are open and you can enjoy a knockoff pint and parma combination at your local, so let’s jump right into the action.

Coming fresh out of a Thursday night win at the MCG are the Hawks. Chad Wingard was electric, kicking three goals much to Patch’s discomfort. Jaeger O’Meara played his first game back after the break due to a facial fracture, and you couldn’t tell. Not only did he play attractive football, he is still very handsome. James Sicily was also very impressive in a rebounding/intercepting role, but we already knew that. Jayden Short and Bachar Houli both played well at the same time, which was surprising, but the ball did spend a lot of time in Richmond’s backline…

The Bulldogs are facing the Giants in the Greene-Bontempelli Grudge Match. Unfortunately, Toby decided not to take the trip down to Marvel Stadium to gouge some eyes. Instead, Lachie Ash will be making his debut. At $193,800, he’s no cheap rookie, but from what I’ve heard he’s a real Lachie Whitfield-type of talent. Hopefully he plays well and holds his spot. Isaac Cumming has also made way for Zac Langdon to return to the Giants’ outfit, while Tom Liberatore, Toby McLean and Zaine Cordy come into the Bulldogs, while Ryan Gardner, Billy Gowers and Patrick Lipinski are out.

North Melbourne and Sydney will face off on Saturday, with Sam Naismith still out. Similarly priced ruck phenom and friend of the pod, Marc Pittonet, is giving Naismith owners an easy trade-in option as he plays his second game for Carlton. Jack Steven will debut for the Cats against Pittonet’s Blues, with Brandan Parfitt out under an injury cloud after a fantastic game last week. Tom Williamson is playing his first game for the season after chronic injury issues. Hopefully he can provide us with another rookie-priced defensive option next week. Stefan Martin is out of the Brisbane side, with Archie Smith taking his place. Everyone’s favourite Eagle Josh Rotham is in for Jackson Nelson this week as well.

Sam Flanders has been named on the extended bench against the Crows, while Shane McAdam and Will Hamill have also been listed for Adelaide in Sunday’s first game at Metricon. Orazio Fantasia and Conor McKenna have both been brought into the extended squad for Essendon, with the latter concerning Ridley owners. Kysaiah Pickett is back after his week off due to partying too hard and catching Ubers. Fremantle and Port Adelaide are facing off in the Hub, making Sunday a Metricon double header. Sean Darcy and Ryan Burton are out injured, while Connor Blakely, Stephen Hill, Jesse Hogan, Caleb Serong, Sam Sturt, and Nathan Wilson have been brought into the extended squad for Fremantle. Stephen Hill, Jesse Hogan and Sam Sturt have been named on field. Ollie Wines and Mitch Georgiades have both been brought into the extended squad, along with Kane Farrell and potentail debutant Miles Bergman.


Plenty of options to keep an eye out for.

Lachie Ash ($193,800) DEF/MID – Been described as a Lachie Whitfield clone, and going by Lachie Whitfield, that’s pretty good. More expensive, and in a strong side. One to watch

Tom Williamson ($146,300) DEF – Not a rookie, but cheap due to his inability to get on the park in recent seasons. Plays a good rebounding role, and should slot straight into what Nic Newman was doing.

Stephen Hill ($190,600) DEF/FWD – Once again, not a rookie, but cheap due to not playing much footy last season. Or the season before. If he can get through a game and pull up fine for next week, he’ll be a good option.

Sam Flanders ($162,300) MID/FWD – Listed on the extended bench for the Suns and has been hotly tipped to do so, this bloke could offer us an option as a dual position player. Keep an eye as teams drop.

Shane McAdam ($123,900) FWD – Also listed on the extended bench, so wait and see on teams before doing anything. Also, you get a week to look at him anyway, why would you trade him in now?

Will Hamill ($123,900) DEF – See above


These players come with a free frogurt! (That’s good)

These players come with Potassium Benzoate! (That’s bad)

FozDaddy’s Lock of the Week

I can’t look past big Max Gawn to top score the round. Came back into form after a poor round one with a massive 184 against Carlton, and will play Patch’s Essendon. The Bombers don’t have a certified star in the ruck, or even a certified decent player in the ruck, so he should dominate at the MCG. The Dees to get up over the Bombers in an upset too.

Good luck this week, community!

Thoughts on Trading Cavarra to Sturt, he’s named on field but will he be a late out?

    Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 15:57

    Wait until teams are confirmed and then pull the trigger

    Choppers · 19/06/2020 at 17:19

    Sturt is named on field.

      Dave · 19/06/2020 at 17:25

      This trade is happening!:)

TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 16:06

With Milera being out, think i'm going to hold Laird 1 more week. Probably miss out on Howe for the time being but recent history suggests he will drop back down at some point. So i'm going the double rookie correction this week. Cavarra – Sturt no brainer. Which one for my second trade?
1. BZT – Rivers
2. Green – Rivers
3. Green – Bennell

Leaning towards option 2 as it creates the swingset, as well as means i dont have to play T brown or J Mac. But BZT is a lot of coin warming the pine. As for Bennell, probably has the higher scoring potential and JS, but his body is tied together with a piece of string. What do we reckon community?

    Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 17:07

    Agreed on Laird, I'm holding this week.

    I like the swingset, go option two.

    BZT to Williamson next week

      Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 18:06

      I'm holding on Laird cause I just kicked Houston to the kerb and it feels goood

        Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 18:52

        Who to Russty

          Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:13

          Went with my safest choice Shake, bypassed Howe for Stewart

            Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 19:48

            Bit of rain about tomorrow should make things a bit interesting Russty. Saints top heavy?

              Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:54

              I reckon Saints might make it interesting Shake, I'm actually tipping the upset so fingers crossed.

                Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 20:20

                Definitely going to be a good chance!

                AuroraBorealis?! · 19/06/2020 at 22:11

                I'm excited for the game Russty, it's been a while since the saints have been competitive but i like how they play under Ratten. Should challenge my pies a decent amount

        demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 19:04

        I did too russty Welcome Rozee next week TRACCA

          Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:14

          Soon as I heard Houston's going back to defence Neil, bugger that

    demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 17:42

    Green to Rivers appears the best option Tommy,though when Bennell gets more time look out NDD

Karen · 19/06/2020 at 16:08

What does Greene being out mean for Kelly or Whitfield’s scoring potential? Need to vc one of them due to my loophole players playing early. Will it benefit or disadvantage either? (Also does Macrea’s score improve at all due to Libba’s return?)

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 16:17

    Zac Langdon plays a similar role from memory so i don't think it should affect the gws lads too much. As for Macrae, realistically it should be Bailey Smith who gets shifted out but who knows with bevo

      Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 17:07

      Bloody Bevo

        Jess · 20/06/2020 at 12:50

        Ahh hindsight is funny. says Kelly wont play and Whitfield will get 8…

Steeeve · 19/06/2020 at 16:26

Going on either Ash or Hill as a defence downgrade this week. Who would you choose to bring in?
Also, dropping either Dan Houston or Jordan Dawson. Who would you choose to flick?

    Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 17:07

    Hill over Ash for job security…injury risk of course

    Of those two I would flick Dawson I think

Goaheadmakemymacrae · 19/06/2020 at 16:29

Would you trade Ben Long to get Howe if it meant you had to play Max King or trade Long to Sturt and miss out on Howe?

Current Back line
Bench: BZT-BWilliams(nuff)

Current Forward line
Whitfield, Heeney, Rozee, DSmith, Taylor, Long
Bench: King-Coomben

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 16:34

    Not sure id be trading Long. I don't own him but i dont think you were considering trading him after round 1 πŸ™‚
    Not sure how you get sturt in but BZT/Williams – RIvers seems a no brainer

Dan · 19/06/2020 at 16:38

I'm planning on bringing in either Pittonet or Sturt. Any thoughts on which has the most upside?

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 16:42

    Pitonnet won't be on your field, so unless your forward line has Taylor at F6, id lean towards the player bringing you the most on field points

      Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 17:08

      True but Pitto had great JS and will likely generate more total cash

        TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 17:24

        It certainly looks like it Lek! How a ruck gets 175 scored on him yet still scores 120+ is astounding. And if he can do it against one of the best in the comp it suggests he can do it against anyone.

Gaffa · 19/06/2020 at 16:53

Nic Naitanui – continue to hold or consider shifting?

    Lekdog · 19/06/2020 at 17:08


      MADMAX · 19/06/2020 at 17:12

      Yeah I'd shift.

        Gaffa · 19/06/2020 at 17:26

        Cheers Madmax Lekdog.
        With Goldy & Gawn out of $ reach, still a shift if it were a downgrade to Pittonet?

          Pman · 19/06/2020 at 20:02

          I have Nic Nat too but I'm considering dumping both Houston and Dawson this week for SPS (Carlton) DEF/MID and Sturt FWD which gives me $345K to upgrade Nic Nat to Gawn/Goldy and Cavarra to Hill (if he doesn't get injured frist fame back!) the following week.

    Dools · 19/06/2020 at 18:44

    If your choice is to D/grade down grade with JS is mind take the plunge on little pitonett …I reckon he is the trade if NicNat is sticking in your throat

Tommy · 19/06/2020 at 17:38

Need to field 2 out of Starcevich, brander, noble or rivers.

Need to field 1 out of Bennell, mcinerney and brown

Need to field 2 out of Cameron, budarick, king and berry.

Can’t loophole, can anyone help me out?

    Tommy · 19/06/2020 at 17:55


    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 18:05

    Too many choices Tommy haha, I'd go
    Starcevich & Rivers,
    Cameron & Budarick
    on current form

    redherringfc · 19/06/2020 at 18:17

    Early in a season i tend to look at last weeks scores. So definitely Starcevich. I’d also leave Noble on the pine, coin toss between the other 2. I have the same 4 but can loop with bzt. Noble just doesn’t get a look in for me this week.

    In your mids i’d put Bennell on. Hopefully a few more minutes on field and he ramps up on his 59.

    Forwards are tough. I don’t think king will score well against the pies. Cameron got 72 last week, so I’d probably put him on field. I’m tempted to say Berry instead of Budarick, but again, toss a coin.

    Now I’ve put my thoughts out there, do the opposite and you should be just fine.

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 18:50

    Yeah i agree with russty, id probably narrow down the options so its easier to choose and we arent essentially picking your team for you ahaha.
    In saying that i second what russty said

TommyS12 · 19/06/2020 at 17:40

What do you guys reckon the best option out of these 3 are;
1. Bewley & Housten for D.Cameron & Tom Stewart (approx 90k left) – leaves 4 rookies on fwd line due to Dusty injury & 2 rookies in def
2. Bewley & Housten for Stephen Hill/Tom Williamson (go early on one of them) & Petracca/Rozee (approx 90-130k depending on what def rookie I take – leaves 3 rookies on fwd line & 3 in def
3. Bewley & Conroy for D.Cameron & Pittonet (Pittonet would be R3 as I have Gawndy combo, purely for cash generation) (Approx 35k left) & hold housten


    Dools · 19/06/2020 at 18:47

    Go option 1…

Nigel K · 19/06/2020 at 18:06

Thinking of getting on pittonet money maker train. I have ruck swing ceglar/cameron. Thinking of moving cameron forward for cavarra and putting pitto in the R3. Thoughts? or is that unnecessary. ONly making housten to howe trade this week otherwise everything else good.

Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 18:29

Josh Kelly is out this week with calf tightness, replaced by Jackson Hately

    demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 18:44

    Geez he's unlucky Russty I hear HOGAN is struggling NDD

      Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 18:54

      Hogan won’t play Neil. What do u think of Jones being dropped?

        demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 19:22

        Love the bloke Shake but i think he is gone With Rivers Hore and Smith it's hard to see him being a regular defender and off the pace for the mids. I would try him forward but then he's up against KY. Tough call but I reckon he has gone one year too long Hogan would be welcome back home. Gonna loop both woods players brown.noble

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/06/2020 at 22:47

      Hogan. What r the chances?
      Of all the things

      Had a weight dropped on his head!

      To the people who say luck has nothing to do with it I say bah humbug.

      Whitfield night ended early on 8 points
      Bad luck to most that have him but those who don't could shoot u up the leader board.

      Lady luck she plays a part.

      Jelly is good but can't be trusted <img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="πŸ€”" src=""&gt;

        Big Maxy · 20/06/2020 at 09:02

        Same goes for Whitfield, can trust him either. Always a risk starting with him

TelescopicCox · 19/06/2020 at 18:43

Kelly news was all I needed! Hold the course and use Bennell to cover, and prioritise getting in Pitto for cash gen, or move Kelly to Stewart or Fyfe and be done with it

Dash · 19/06/2020 at 18:59

Cavarra to Sturt or Cameron
BZT or Gould to Rivers

Thoughts on who to trade?

Billioux · 19/06/2020 at 19:01

Dusty, Toby and now Jelly! Issues.

Des Dooley · 19/06/2020 at 19:02

J.kelly you disappoint me …upside you won't stink it up or lose coin ….1 step closer to Neal …The shed beckons

Defying_Madness · 19/06/2020 at 19:03

Which dropped rookies go first out of Green, Robertson and Cavarra
and which two come in out of Sturt, Bennell and Rivers

Cheers community

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 19:13

    Id probably keep dev robbo. Green still couldnt get a gam with kelly and greene out, and cavarra is injured.

    ive gone sturt and rivers this week. Bennell probs the higher scoring potential but rivers JS and lack of injury history leaned me towards him

      demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 19:35

      Sturt and Rivers also but any 2 really can't go wrong I would keep Robbo,he will come good

        Defying_Madness · 20/06/2020 at 12:53

        Yeah cheers guys. Passed on Bennell and kept Robbo

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:48

    If Cumming is omitted and Kelly is out and Hately and Ash get a game before Green, Green has to go imo

Backline help · 19/06/2020 at 19:06

Need help. Noble, Brander or Doedee on the field?

    TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 19:14

    If youre picking between them, your backline must be pretty strong. I'd pick doedee and noble (could be pies bias) tbh, but flip a coin between noble and brander

TommyC99 · 19/06/2020 at 19:16

For the tipsters, do we reckon kelly out changes the outcome of the game at all? Liked the giants at the line before the late out and the line has gone into 2.5. Still fancying the giants?

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:31

    I think it might be a close one Tommy, Libber might make a difference, Hopefully Macrae plays where he's sposed to, I'm punting the VC on him.

    Tommy · 19/06/2020 at 22:19

    I put $20 on the dogs when I heard Kelly was out. Almost makes up for Whitfield.

demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 19:38

Why didn't the dogs chase Ratten,surely he is a better coach than Bevo

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:47

    Cause he was meant to steer the Saints to their first flag since 66 Neil πŸ™‚

      demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 19:59

      great pick up by the saints Reckon Bont will get reported ,i would have been done ten times already

        Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 20:10

        Yeah that bloody Deboar's a pest all right, reckon the Doggies are a chance tonight.

Josh · 19/06/2020 at 19:39

Thoughts on moving Greene to one of Rozee, petracca or simpkin?

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:46

    Yeah I would…Rozee or Petracca, better do it fast though

      Josh · 19/06/2020 at 19:48

      Yeah thinking Rozee over Petracca – trac's scoring slowed right down once curnow starting tagging him in the second half

        Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 19:52

        Did you get it done in time Josh?

          Josh · 19/06/2020 at 20:12

          Yeah got it done with a few minutes to spare! Cheers Russty

    Des Dooley · 19/06/2020 at 19:48

    The Tractor is playing in the mids …JS awesome pay unders for him

    demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 20:56

    Any of those Rozee just

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:00

      Im backing Petracca in. He has had two good weeks so the argument that he won't get there this year looks to be wrong. Dont forget his killer Marsh score..

        Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:01

        Port wont keep it up. I actually tipped freo this week. Rozee will fall with them

Dane · 19/06/2020 at 19:40

Is Naismith too pittonet a must?
Not sure I trust Naismith to be back next week.
But I do have Cameron as R3 and also ceglar at F3.

Des Dooley · 19/06/2020 at 19:47

Pittonet JS is solid till round 10 …Do it

Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 20:23

Whitfield night over l think.

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 20:25

    Jeez I hope not! 8 points

      Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 20:29

      He’s out

        Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 20:31

        Wonderful !…gotta love this game

    demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 21:01

    Is it a report? Looked just a hard hit to me should be ok

      Holty01 · 19/06/2020 at 21:04

      If Naughton Gets weeks for that I will stop watching footy. Eyes on the ball and doesn’t come off his line. Just an unfortunate knock to Whitfield

        Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 21:08

        Whitfield the way he attacked that put himself in that situation. Just bad luck for him.

        Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 21:34

        Don't reckon he's got anything to answer for mate, although he should be charged with crimes against the hairdressing community for that hairstyle.

          holty01 · 19/06/2020 at 22:15


      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/06/2020 at 22:57

      Just too lads going flat out at the ball.

      Just unlucky Whitfield coped it

      How good is the mullet.
      Good old fashion footballer with exceptional skills. Will win Charlie one day.

Holty01 · 19/06/2020 at 20:51

Whitfield 😫
I guess the only thing saving me is most will have him.

    Shake n bake · 19/06/2020 at 21:12

    Should noway have ever been made a fwd Holty have never seen him rest fwd either of the half fwd line or deep fwd.

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 21:13

    Only 57% actually Holty, so there'll be a few this week with that legup..dangit I was hoping for a decent score this week too.

      Derek · 19/06/2020 at 22:08

      SC is rough. I have an opponent who has Whitfield, Kelly and Dusty.

      I didn’t have Whitfield or Kelly and traded out Dusty this week.

        holty01 · 19/06/2020 at 22:14

        Probably smart not starting him. Always misses games. I ended up selecting him as didn’t really have too much faith in the forward line

        Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 22:16

        Nice dodging of the bullet Derek, I actually had it in my head that this season was 17 rounds plus 4 rounds of finals.
        It's actually 14 rounds plus 4 rounds of finals.
        That being said, I've already used maximum trades lol.

          Derek · 19/06/2020 at 23:06

          It’s weird having so many trades. Dusty gets a sore rib, in comes Fyfe.

            Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 23:10

            Yeah like the other format where trades don't really have any value, we'll only need to abstain from trading for 2 weeks to be able to trade every week. It's a different mindset for sure, it's all about the points now.

              Jess · 20/06/2020 at 12:57

              Yeah enough have Whitfield that im confident we can still score well. As long as some other things go right I wouldn't worry

Jackson · 19/06/2020 at 22:15

Take Macrae's 134 VC score or roll the dice with Grundy or Cripps?

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 22:18

    I'm taking Macrae's score after passing on Grundy's 115 last week and then getting Titch's 95.

    TBone_23 · 19/06/2020 at 22:23

    Take that mate, great captain score

      Jackson · 19/06/2020 at 22:25

      Yep taking guaranteed points to make up a bit for the whitfield disaster tonight

        Jess · 20/06/2020 at 12:53

        Probobly should have VC'd Grundy or Neale. Take the 135 now though. Good score

Stupid Coach · 19/06/2020 at 22:29

Great to have you back Patch. I am thinking of trading Georgiades to D Cameron and Zerk Thatcher to Young/Hamill or Williamson.
Do I make one or both trades and who you bring in for Zerk Thatcher?

Stupid Coach · 19/06/2020 at 22:37

Great to have you back Patch. I am thinking of trading Georgiades to D Cameron and Zerk Thatcher to Young/Hamill or Williamson.
Do I make one or both trades and who do I trade Zerk Thatcher for ?

demonsdelights · 19/06/2020 at 23:17

Perryman has slipped under the radar. This lad can really play. Could edge his way into my team very easily

    Russty_ · 19/06/2020 at 23:42

    Yeah he looked good week 1 Neil, then he got a 63 I think and now this, he's still a bit inconsistent I think but could be a good one.

    Westy · 20/06/2020 at 10:24

    Don't fay the Perryman. (Does that get the earworm going for the 'more mature' members of this group?)

      demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 11:22

      Them were the days Westy.,,,when coke was a drink a sharpie wasn't a needle and the dees and saints won premierships

Pman · 19/06/2020 at 23:18

Who would you field as your last starting midfielder this round out of the following 4 rookies;
T Brown

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 00:07

    Last?…brown or Mcinerny

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 01:43

    Bennell or McInerney

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 12:52

      Bennell will kill it imo

Dash · 20/06/2020 at 10:09

BZT or Gould to Rivers?
Comden to D Cameron

Only 1 trade left?

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 12:51

    Gould to rivers. Dont know what loophole options you have though so might depend on that

      Dash · 20/06/2020 at 13:25

      Reckon hang onto BZT or trade Gould for now?

s.c.tragic · 20/06/2020 at 10:12

Anyone else having trouble accessing SC site? Green ring spinning around untiIl I loose patients (trust me I'm a doctor).

    Choppers · 20/06/2020 at 12:03

    nah mate, all good here, using Google Chrome. Just tried it with Edge as well and no probs.

      s.c.tragic · 20/06/2020 at 12:08

      Thanks using chrome everything else fine just SC.

Greg Rowell · 20/06/2020 at 12:16

NicNat -> Pittponet (R2) or
BZT -> Pittonet?

Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 12:59

Cunnington mckinerney out

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:14

    Wish I'd known bout Mckinerney earlier so we could have looped picket

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:15

      Worth remembering for the community to take the E off Mckinerney

        Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:16

        Will catch a few out who have "set and forgotten" for the day

    hedski · 20/06/2020 at 14:16

    Ah crap missed that Shake (MacInerny) I'll have to take Pickett now instead of giving Brown a run.
    Playing you this round, can't remember the league, you had Whit as well yeah?

      hedski · 20/06/2020 at 14:19

      Shit I got that wrong too, McInerney πŸ‘

        demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 15:50

        me too dion damm this game

      Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 14:36

      I did have Whit 🀦‍♂️

        The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 14:41

        Bugger. McInerney has caught me out too, had the E on him to get Macraes VC score.
        Can I put an E on Budarick on the bench and put Robertson from Brisbane onfield to get his donut which would give me Macraes VC?
        What happens if I have two E's on the mid bench?

          hedski · 20/06/2020 at 14:59

          Did you have the E or the C on McInerney Ranger? Bit confused

        hedski · 20/06/2020 at 14:58

        So do I πŸ€ͺ

Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 13:16

Hill withdrawn from freo

Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:17

Stephen Hill also out. Anyone who traded him in early could be stuffed

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 13:17

    Rough week with all these changes

Westy · 20/06/2020 at 14:50

Ins Simpkin, Starcevich
Outs D Martin, B Williams

At half time in the NM v Swans game I'm happy with that choice. (Would have been happier if I'd had room to go NicNat to Goldy as well.)
Sorry to those people who traded out Dawson.

The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 14:53

What happens if I put two E's on the mid bench?
i.e McInerney and Budarick. Do I get Budaricks score?

    hedski · 20/06/2020 at 14:56

    I think so Ranger, you'd get the lowest score if both played but you should get Buddha's score with Mac not playing.

      The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 15:05

      You'd think I'd know by now but I don't think this has happened to me before.
      I had the C on Robertson and the E on Mac to take take Macraes VC score and then Mac's E score.
      Now not sure if to just put the C on Grundy and put Bennell or Budarick onfield or have two E's on the bench and get the E score plus Macraes VC.

        The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 15:20

        Just read the rules Hedski and it just says that if you have two E's on the bench you get the lower score, no mention of what happens when one of those isn't playing.
        Can't risk a donut so just gonna have to put the C on Grundy and Bennell onfield.

      demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 16:09

      think i will do the same Ranger thx for the comment NDD

Jorg Ancrath · 20/06/2020 at 15:15

Gee, someone at CD has Heeney. 3 touches and goes up 50. Right….

TBone_23 · 20/06/2020 at 15:32

Apparently McKenna has coronavirus. Gill has called for a press conference. I would guess that means one of two things, Bombers having a bye or another shutdown. Please be option 1!!

    The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 15:42


    TOPHAWK1 · 20/06/2020 at 15:48

    This is a disaster. The whole Essendon squad will have to go into quarantine. Essendon-Melbourne clash will be postponed or even worse, the whole league might be shut down again. FML

    Holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 15:55

    The luck of the Irish. Question is, what did he do to get it?

    TBone_23 · 20/06/2020 at 16:09

    I think they should do the right thing and make the game a forfeit for Essendon. I guess a dees fan can dream

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2020 at 16:20

    Only the bombers dees game cancelled, what does that mean for SC? Surely we don't cop zeroes…

      demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 16:22

      disaster gawn oliver rivers on and on There has to be a better solution Tommy

        TommyC99 · 20/06/2020 at 16:28

        I was thinking we get their averages, but as much as id like that (ive got gawn,tracca,clarry,smith and RIvers), its probably not really that fair being only 2 rounds in with inflated averages

          demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 16:41

          The game may be played at the tail of the season .How do finals fit in .What a mess Averages is the better solution I agree NDD

            Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 17:07

            Let’s hope nobody else has it then they can play it Monday or Tuesday

              demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 17:15

              Tough on the two clubs but that would work dees play sunday and bombers sat night Lets hope they read your suggestion Shake

              TommyC99 · 20/06/2020 at 18:28

              GIl said they aren’t getting tested till Tuesday, which seems silly

    Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 16:21

    Game is postponed

The Lost Boys · 20/06/2020 at 16:22

I'm a bombers fan and hope Conor will be ok, along with everyone else obviously. Very disappointed there wont be a match.

What do they do for supercoach? Cancel the round? Too bad for those with Melbourne / Essendon players? Gawn no longer the captain lock i guess πŸ™‚

    TommyC99 · 20/06/2020 at 16:24

    THinking the same thing, ive got 4 players from the game, ill cop 2 zeroes at this stage πŸ™

Jorg Ancrath · 20/06/2020 at 16:30

SC goes on. No bench cover, bad luck.

    hedski · 20/06/2020 at 17:15

    That's what I prepared for 5 mins before the pies game, ya gotta be realistic.
    Benched Rivers, Viney and Devon.
    Slipped Noble, Brown and King on and moved my vc from Neale to Grundy and my C from Gawn to Neale.
    I've got no ruck cover tho.

      Derek · 20/06/2020 at 17:46

      I just found out. Too late to get my bench sorted.

    The Jinx · 20/06/2020 at 18:01

    I'm kinda glad only have Rivers and Smith.
    Moved Rivers to back via Starcevic got Noble in the bench for cover and Taylor for Smith.

    The Jinx

Messenger · 20/06/2020 at 16:31

Well done Bombers. Obviously they still have the attitude that rules don't apply to them and they've stuffed the game for everyone, again. Wash your hands and don't share your steroids needles sheesh it's not that difficult.

TBone_23 · 20/06/2020 at 16:37

I don’t know how the scoring will work for the Melbourne vs. Essendon game, assuming donuts all round. So reminder if you guys have coverage, please use it instead of loopholing (if you own a Melb or Essendon player on that line). I know there are more important things going on right now, but thought a small reminder might help!

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 16:52

    just give us last week's score ,sounds fair to me

      The Ranger · 20/06/2020 at 17:06

      Or the projected score

        demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 17:18

        gawns 184 better Ranger lol NDD

demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 16:58

Survivor might need looking at Derek .Seems unfair to be eliminated

    Derek · 20/06/2020 at 17:44

    I’ll look at the rule book and see what it say under postponement of a game

      hedski · 20/06/2020 at 19:06

      I believe it's under section 20 rule cv19

Rabbits16 · 20/06/2020 at 17:05

see y'all in 2021 when the plandemic is hopefully shoved under the bed with ya teenage porno's

dontblushbaby · 20/06/2020 at 17:17

Herald Sun are saying that the game is likely to be next month

    Holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 17:25

    That don’t help for SuperCoach though. Only way around it is by cancelling the sc round. Unfair on those who have many Essendon and Melbourne players. I have 5 🀦🏼‍♂️

      Rabbits16 · 20/06/2020 at 17:36

      this season is rather unfortunate isn't it

        Holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 17:40

        It is. Only takes 1 idiot to ruin it for everyone. I guess everyone is innocent until proven guilty but if all the players were doing the right thing, I wonder how McKenna got it?

        dontblushbaby · 20/06/2020 at 17:41

        Someone suggested they get their projected score as an option ?

      Jorg Ancrath · 20/06/2020 at 17:53

      We all knew this could happen. Need to have a spread of players from all teams so you can absorb a missed game.

    Derek · 20/06/2020 at 17:42

    You would think they could test everyone and play it Monday or Tuesday

    It might end up like Big Bash and have double game weeks for some Teams

      holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 17:52

      Like the option but then it’s unfair on all those who subbed their players out for bench players. Doesn’t matter what decision they make, someone going to be upset

      Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 17:52

      Did it in league. Postponed it till Monday.

        Derek · 20/06/2020 at 18:24

        Good point. Just last week, they played it on Monday.

          dontblushbaby · 20/06/2020 at 18:36

          The NRL person in question ( Aiden Tolman ) got tested and the test was negative , the game was postponed as precautionary only , no one in the NRL was positive however McKenna is , thats the difference

            Derek · 20/06/2020 at 18:59

            Will this mean Essendon won’t play next week?

              The Lost Boys · 20/06/2020 at 19:15

              That will depend on if any other players / coaches / staff test positive over the next week. If none do then I think they'll play, if more do then probably not – and then it will be interesting to see what the AFL does if a team can't play for 2 – 4 rounds.

Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 18:27

Grundy 18 touches 5 marks 27 hit outs 5 frees for. 77pts

TommyC99 · 20/06/2020 at 19:01

When do we reckon supercoach will release info on what happens next? I understand its pot luck about who gets the virus but ive got 4 premos in that game, it ruins weeks

Borko · 20/06/2020 at 19:56

I have Brander on the bench with the E on him … will I get his score if Rivers doesn’t play? You would think so? Assuming we are playing for best 18 this week.

Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 19:57

Well this sucks!…been out all day and come home to this news, had coverage for all my dees and Bombers players too until I changed the E from Brown to Mcinerney last night, dangit, will this week still count for Supercoach guys?

    Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 20:06

    Good game today Russty!

      Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:07

      Wouldn't say that mate, haha we got flogged, I couldn't even watch we were so bad

        demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 20:19

        Long was poor russty gone next week

          Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:23

          What a dud he turned out to be, better off with a rookie

            demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 20:40

            Did you leave Gater at the ground. If Gater can improve his endurance a bit he may take Long's spot. He has been seen running around Colac in gumboots.

              Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:06

              Haha he might be drowning his sorrows in a pub somewhere with how shit the Saints played today, I thought we looked great last week but the Pies schooled us today, Maybe Long to Butler Neil?…or is that just throwing good money after bad?

Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 20:01

In the draft league l have Zorko on the field now he’s out. I have Murphy and wines on the bench but you can’t put emg on the players in draft league. Who’s pts do l get?

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:18

    I think in Draft you only get one E score and that's the lowest Shake.
    I think the whole week should be wiped in all formats.

      Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 20:46

      But you cant put e on any player in draft league?

        Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:56

        No you can't…and it only uses one bench score no matter how many players are out.The E score comes from whatever player on your bench has the lowest score but only for 1 out. It's highly unfair in this situation.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2020 at 21:53

    Could be worse in draft shake.

    U could have gawn, oliver, petracca and smith with the only capt option left rozee on Sunday Who was been on the bench for half a game! 🀬

Red · 20/06/2020 at 20:14

What happens if you've got Gawn as captain?

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:19

    You might get the VC score Red but I'm only guessing until they announce anything.

      Red · 20/06/2020 at 20:44

      Makes sense

G Train · 20/06/2020 at 20:32

Absolute bulls***. Was going to win league easily, I had Oliver, Viney, Petracca and Smith and opp had Rivers and Parish. All of a sudden I have 19 players available and he has 20, I miss 4 potentially premo scores compared to a mid pricer and a rookie. Not to mention he has Whitfield who’s score is now irrelevant. To make matters worse I brought in Petracca instead of Simpkin this week. Now I’m probably going to lose, SC should have just given out their projected scores which are about right and not let you put the C on any of those players. Absolute bull.

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:40

    They'll have to announce something Gtrain so it's fair for everyone, if this week's supercoach is even counted?

      G Train · 20/06/2020 at 20:42

      They just announced it, best 18 players.

        holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 20:47

        Is that factual? They simply can’t do that as it advantages anyone that doesn’t have Melbourne and Essendon players

          demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 20:50

          The statement is confusing. Do we get Brander by loop?

            G Train · 20/06/2020 at 20:54

            Depends if you have the E on him and a defender on the field who’s not playing. If so, and he’s in your top 18 scores, it counts.

          G Train · 20/06/2020 at 20:52

          Yep look at their twitter, said they couldn’t apply average score because people who owned Gawn or Viney could exploit Captain score (simple fix for this would be to not allow people to put the C on a dees or dons player), and they said that they couldn’t apply projected because there hasn’t been enough games to judge those scores, particularly for rookies, but players like Oliver getting 107 and Rivers getting 62 seems more than fair to me. Much fairer than just handing out 0’s and screwing teams that have multiple premos from either side compared to teams who have none.

            The Lost Boys · 20/06/2020 at 20:57

            Absolutely G Train, and Tim Michell saying people with Essendon / Melbourne players will get a huge advantage when they do play in plainly ridiculous – do they expect us to keep all those players for when they finally play, and does he think people who don't have them now wont trade them in when they do?

              G Train · 20/06/2020 at 21:02

              Exactly, that was the worst part, trying to make it out like we have some sort of advantage after being screwed this round. Everyone will just bring in Oliver, Petracca, Smith etc if they don’t already have them.

            demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 21:03

            Seen that they are applying the same rule as when the adelaide coach was killed NDD

              G Train · 20/06/2020 at 21:10

              Yep, wrong call then too, but due to it being such an unprecedented unexpected tragedy at the time, I don’t think anyone was judging them too harshly, deservingly so. But today’s decision is just unacceptable. The fact they didn’t have any contingency plans in regards to if something like this happened before the season started and had to figure it out on the fly today and just decided to go with what they did last time is just laughable and pathetic.

                demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 21:26

                Couldn't agree more.There will be a lot of upset keen coaches NDD

    B-Mac · 20/06/2020 at 20:54

    Sour grapes?!

    It’s unquestionably the fairest way to proceed.

    Individual examples of where someone might be advantaged or disadvantaged is completely irrelevant.

    Across the board it’s absolutely fair.

    Nobody particularly happy with the situation, not least people really affected by this virus.

    So sack up and get on with it.

      G Train · 20/06/2020 at 20:58

      How on earth is it fairer than giving the projected scores. So if you had 5 premiums from both teams and your opponent had none it’s fair? Someone obviously has Whitfield and benefited from this. Look online, the resounding opinion is that it’s anything but fair.

        B-Mac · 20/06/2020 at 21:09

        Projected scores?

        So a fair and reasonable way would be to allow people to trade players in with complete knowledge of what they’ll score?

        What about those who’ve made 2 trades already and can’t take advantage of that?

        Pros and cons in any approach, but this is easily the most fair for the majority.

        It won’t be the last round this happens so they need an option that can be consistently adopted fairly.

          G Train · 20/06/2020 at 21:16

          No, like I said, all Dees and Dons players are locked, can’t put the C on them, can’t trade them in or out. Simple. Much fairer than giving them 0, there’s literally no cons with that method. I don’t think anyone would argue with the projected scores, potentially gaining/losing 10 points on a player is much better than getting 0 and completely changing the dynamic of the round. Have a look online, I think you’ll find a majority of people are in fact not happy at all with the decision.

          G Train · 20/06/2020 at 21:19

          And in regards to it not being the last time it happens, you would have thought they would of had a contingency plan for if/when this happened and outlined it before the season started. If we all knew in advance then perhaps people could have planned for it and perhaps balanced their sides differently.

      Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:09

      Yeah Bmac, it's not fair if teams with heaps of dees and Bombers can't even field 18 with E's, but I see your point it's all they could do really other than cancelling the round.

        demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 21:29

        Maybe that's the correct way At least Petracca wont go up

demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 20:48

will players with E count among the 18 or just onfield?

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 20:54

    You'd have to think if you don't have 18 onfield because of so many dees and bombers players ,the e will count in the top 18 score, it'd be unfair if it didn't

Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 20:53

18 highest scoring players will only be scored

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 21:00

    including bench Shake

      Shake n bake · 20/06/2020 at 21:08

      Don’t know. I had Jakobs on the bench with the E and
      Conroy on πŸ€”

        Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:10

        I'm same Shake already got my VC Macrae's score tabulated double, Xerri on as C with jacobs on bench…not sure if I still get it now?

          holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 22:13

          You should do mate. Just like the bye rounds last year

Gibbs · 20/06/2020 at 20:54

Traded petrecca in at 3:00 today for houston just before they announce the press conference. Danger captain last minute from Gawn, had dusty, kelly Whitfield. Have Smith, Gawn Rivers, bennel, trac and Viney. Honestly been the worst week anyone else fared worse?

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:14

    Im about the same. Screw Herald Sun. This week has completely ruined some of us, and HS are completely to blame. F it

    Dan · 21/06/2020 at 02:05

    I think I'm on a par with you Gibbs. Crazy week!

Derek · 20/06/2020 at 20:55

If it is best 18, those who had Whitfield might have just dodged a bullet

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:01

    Hey D yeah I think I have dodged the Whitfield score but not sure if I get Jacob's score cause I had xerri as C?
    Worst part is I have to take Long and Taylor's scores

      Derek · 20/06/2020 at 21:39

      I’m same, have Jacob on bench with E. Pretty sure he will be included.

      I’m just annoyed, I traded Oliver to Dangerfield 3 mins before game to avoid at least one of my 3 donuts, to find out it probably didn’t need to and Dangerfield is 48 at 3/4 time

      8/9 of my opponents had Whitfield, was looking good for a few wins this week

        Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:59

        Oh yeah that's gotta hurt, considering Danger's score, at least he's 70 odd now.
        I was gonna ask why trade Oliver but I see now, kinda glad I wasn't home today now.

Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:20

I was ranked top 300. I have viney, oliver, Petracca, smith, McGrath, benell, rivers and gawn. How the hell is this fair????

    G Train · 20/06/2020 at 21:21

    I feel your pain, apparently it’s fairer to screw people with premos from Dees and Dons than just giving out the projected scores.

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:31

      The blokes running SC are retarded. Talk about wasting hours and hours of your time to be screwed over

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:22

    My post was deleted. But where is the justice??

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:23

      Ridiculously unfair. Screw sc

    mick · 20/06/2020 at 22:17

    Suck it up and move on girl early season rank is nothing last years winner wasn't inside top 20,000 after 4 rounds. Early season bolter always equals late season loser

    holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 22:27

    You should enter the JRCommunity league Jess. We all love seeing how people in this community are going.

      Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:40

      I replied to you Mick, but my lost was blocked because of profanity. Don't want it explain it again but get F' d hard

        Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:42

        And yeah early season rank isn't everything, but coming from a person who has finished top 5 overall it's pretty important. Thanks for your imlut

          Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:44

          Go be a tool somewhere else

            Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:48

            Im glad the unfair as hell rules have benefited you…

Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:33

I take this game bloody seriously. I was ranked highly only to be solely screwed over by these changes. All i want is a fair bloody go

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 21:36

    I just keep checking Twitter because i cant believe what they have done. Too bad for those of us who have 7 odd players who just don't count. Ridiculous… Why do i try

      Connor · 21/06/2020 at 14:07

      Because these are completely unforeseen circumstances and you're not the only person affected (albeit in the most minor way possible)

Ben Bretel · 20/06/2020 at 21:35

can our emergency players count in our best 18

    holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 22:25

    Yes Ben. As long as there is a player onfield in that position that isn’t playing

demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 21:40

jack steven having a mare

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:44

    what a round this has been ay Neil?…I don't think I've gotten any tips right yet…lol, why did I think the Saints were worth a pinch of shit?…haha

Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 21:55

What is happening this week?
Tigers, GWS, North, Saints, Eagles…just awful, anyone who got all the tips this week deserves a million bucks!

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 22:02

    just been checking the tweets S/C says the same rules apply as per the byes in previous years Vague but if memory serves me bye players with E's were counted not sure ?anyone remember

      Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 22:06

      Yeah I reckon it counts Neil, as long as the E is for a non playing on field player, it should count in the top 18 scores.
      I just feel for coaches like Jess who had heaps of Dee and Bomber players in her squad.
      The fairest outcome really would probably be to have cancelled the round in SC.

Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 22:09

Lachie Neale is a freakin freaky freaky scoring freak!
Surely teams have to start tagging the living jesus out of him now don't they?

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 22:32

    change the c from gawn to neale lucky i guess

Neverweaken · 20/06/2020 at 22:11

On a different note. Traded NicNat to Pittonet. Early on was regretting it. But very pleased. Not so pleased with trading Dusty for Petracca this round.

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:31

    Sc is crap. But if I'm reading correctly then ess and Melbourne players are gold

    Russty_ · 20/06/2020 at 22:49

    Pittonet's been unreal NW, this year's R.O.B maybe?…could end up 500k plus.

holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 22:23

I’m about to waste 2 trades for 1 player. Bought in Petracca Thursday night and will trade him out before tomorrowπŸ˜‚. It’s harsh but I guess those are the breaks. Thankfully we have the trades this year

    Jess · 20/06/2020 at 22:30

    Hold. will explain later

    demonsdelights · 20/06/2020 at 22:33

    why trade him out

      dontblushbaby · 20/06/2020 at 22:40

      I was going to bring Bennell in for Davis, instead traded out Devon for Rozee

      holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 22:49

      I have too many low scores mate. Need to wipe out my Whitfield scores etc. I’m still going for overall so happy to do so. If it was round 5 and I was struggling, I would hold as you suggested.

        Derek · 20/06/2020 at 23:11

        I traded Oliver to Danger to avoid a donut, to find out later it is best 18 only.

        Had Brown on bench no E with 80 Pts going to waste.

        One of the few who don’t have a Whitfield, was looking at a relatively good score, most won’t have to use Whitfield’s score now.

          holty01 · 20/06/2020 at 23:16

          I held a extra trade when news broke. Was very close to pulling the trigger for Cameron but didn’t. Lucky I guess.

            DavidC · 21/06/2020 at 05:41

            Trade him back to the player you originally traded out and you will get your trade back.

              holty01 · 21/06/2020 at 13:31

              Didn’t know you could do that. But unfortunately I bought him in for Dusty. ☹️

                DavidC · 21/06/2020 at 14:02

                Yeh, sorry forgot to mention it won't work if the player has already played.

Jorg Ancrath · 21/06/2020 at 05:41

Not sure why people so upset about the best 18 change. Seems only thing they could do. Would have been more unfair to just dish out expected scores, which we know come in about half the time. I don't have Whitfield and all my opponents do. Now they are back in the game. But hey, that's SC. Just get on with it.

    holty01 · 21/06/2020 at 13:31


DavidC · 21/06/2020 at 06:03

So the only way I could get Gawn in next week would be to trade Grundy to him. Is it worth doing to get double Gawns score?

Iridium 192 · 21/06/2020 at 11:15

Why aren't the Victorian clubs in isolation from the community like the west Australian clubs are in Queensland. With ZBT being caught out with a close encounter, Kozi catching an UBER home from a night out and now McKenna going to a home open, apparently. The AFL rabbits on about the integrity of the game, yet again smacks of double standards. West Coast and Fremantle are living in isolation, so in a fair and equal environment, why aren't the other clubs. This would not have happened if that was the case. Just saying, It is AFL. I am sure the "A" stands for Australian. Supercoach had to make a call, and we are all familiar with the best 18 rule. Not fair on all, but nothing would have been. Don't blame Supercoach for this, the blame sits firmly with the AFL for not applying the same restrictions on all clubs.

    holty01 · 21/06/2020 at 13:29

    I agree mate. It might be harsh but the AFL need to come down harder on these players who break the rules. The AFL has done huge work to get the season back up and running. I would assume McKenna would not of been allowed to do what he did under the rules. But agree that all Melbourne clubs need to be locked away in quarantine considering it would have to be one of the worst states with this pandemic

Stupid Coach · 21/06/2020 at 11:50

I have one trade left to use this round and currently have 22 players who either have a score or will score after the completion of today's games. I was going to use the trade to replace Zerk Thatcher with with Young or Hamill. Given only the best 18 scores count, is it worth it or should I hold onto the trade for next week.

Jess · 21/06/2020 at 12:50

So am i correct with saying that basically everyone is to trade hard to get the likes of Gawn, Oliver, Petracca, Viney, Smith, McGrath etc etc and they will all get a ridiculously unfair double point week at some point?

    Jess · 21/06/2020 at 12:52

    As in, Gawn as C could potentially score 720 odd points from one player?

      Jess · 21/06/2020 at 12:55

      And so they didnt want to use averages this round because people could use that knowledge go advantage, but at the same time we know that a bunch of players are almost guaranteed 160+ points in a few weeks?

      Just trying to vet my head around the absurdity

        Iridium 192 · 21/06/2020 at 13:08

        Feeling your pain and confusion Jess. Not sure how it could possibly work with Melbourne and Essendon having 2 games in the 1 round. I would have thought once the best 18 rule was applied, the Melb-Essendon fixture should have benn considered over.Will be interested in seeing how it plays out myself.

          demonsdelights · 21/06/2020 at 13:31

          The easiest,fairest way was to re-jig back to end of round two,i.e. trades prices and players then when dees and bombers play delete supercoach. Please tell me what's the hassle there I spent hours getting my byes right and rookie research done to give me an advantage.When that was taken away I felt cheated by doing all that work for nil chance of reward so I feel for coaches like Jess who work so hard only to be robbed,NO other word for it NDD

      KAT · 21/06/2020 at 16:58

      Or he may not play at all or any other Melbourne, Essendon player when the game is played

    holty01 · 21/06/2020 at 13:37

    I suggested this.
    This double points week for Melb and Ess players seems very unfair. I agree that owners should be awarded but why not just simply take their best score from their 2 matches that week? Will still advantage all those owners and will ultimately prevent everyone trying to bring them in for double points.

Jorg Ancrath · 21/06/2020 at 16:29

Giving the projected score would have been unfair also. There was no perfect solution. Everyone has been disadvantaged to some extent – I have 4 outs, one of which was Petracca who I got in this week. But we just deal with it. Too much moaning.

The Jinx · 21/06/2020 at 16:42

So it's best 18 scoring score infield including emergency for this round. Thank goodness won't be getting Whitfield and Cameron score then.

Tommy · 21/06/2020 at 16:50

Can understand the frustration but it’s only a game people, chill.

Is that double points week that has been mentioned for Melbourne/Essendon players actually confirmed, or are we just speculating?

    Jorg Ancrath · 21/06/2020 at 16:54

    Speculation, think. Could just be top score for those players. Makes more sense.

      demonsdelights · 21/06/2020 at 17:10

      the only people that score in that game are ess-dee holders .if you have sloan or cripps you get nothing in the dees gamme cause they wear a different jumper but viney and merrett score .i think thats what they mean ndd

Jorg Ancrath · 21/06/2020 at 17:10

Macpherson to Pettracca was a bad choice.

holty01 · 21/06/2020 at 17:33

Matt Rowell. You are bloody rubbish. 142 points, you did not deserve that………………😭😭😭😭😭😭 why oh why couldn’t Carlton finish last last year. I’m just very bitter we don’t have him. He is an absolute jet.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2020 at 22:21

    crows would have loved that! 🀣

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/06/2020 at 22:11

Really feel for you Jess.
Seems u have by far been screws the most due to conners two finger salute and you have been given the rough end of the pineapple.

Nothing fair about it esp with that many players from both teams!
And you r right teams can now load up on demon in later rounds.

Just terribly unlucky for some.

Looks like those who bought in sturt wont count in best 18 currently on 8

i can relate as 'm screwed in draft league had gawn, oliver, tracca and smith with rozee the only choice of capt left on Sunday as gawn not playing playing currently spent 1st half on bench.

Think I will just write off 2020 as too many unknowns and just have some fun with it and extra trades.

    Derek · 22/06/2020 at 00:40

    Hey Trig. Bad luck in draft mate. I love how you still had a crack, even when all seemed lost. The C on Rozee was inspiring stuff.

    In another draft my Poor opponent had JKelly, Cunnington and Zorko Even before dealing with the Melb and Essendon players

    It’s been a rough week

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/06/2020 at 10:20

      Thanks Derek

      Thought I might get the bench with 130 sitting idle. But dusty wad on the bench anyway so never really stood a chance.

      Be good to go head to head again with full squads.

      With Heppell now out might have to revisit our mills trade.

    demonsdelights · 22/06/2020 at 11:08

    After a lot of research and planning by coaches like Jess it does seem unfair. The AFL fantasy gave averages everybody happy ,worked

AuroraBorealis?! · 21/06/2020 at 22:36

What is par looking like this round?

    mick · 21/06/2020 at 23:04

    about 2000 I reckon

      Derek · 22/06/2020 at 00:41

      2000 will see a good rank jump

Big Maxy · 22/06/2020 at 07:39

Wouldn't giving the Melb Ess players their average score have been the fairest way to handle it????

    mick · 22/06/2020 at 10:30

    No way. Only 2 games had been played and one of Melbournes was against Carlton.
    Maybe following a pattern rather than averages would also be fair. Eg Max spudded up in all of the odd numbered rounds so far this season so we default his score to the same spud score he got in round 1?
    No that wouldn't be fair either.
    Everybody got hit by the same train mate and I doubt that you'd be saying give them their averages would be fairer if Max had have pumped out a sub 100 against Carlton like he did against eagles. I reckon then you'd be saying give them their averages against the team they were due to play.
    You're just making excuses for yourself suck it up and move on
