The Panic Room – Round 3

Published by Fozdaddy 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.

Rookies

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

Breakevens

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

Wait until teams are confirmed and then pull the trigger

Choppers

Sturt is named on field.

Dave

This trade is happening!:)

TommyC99

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

Agreed on Laird, I'm holding this week.

I like the swingset, go option two.

BZT to Williamson next week

Russty_

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

Shake n bake

Who to Russty

Russty_

Went with my safest choice Shake, bypassed Howe for Stewart

Shake n bake

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

Russty_

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

Shake n bake

Definitely going to be a good chance!

AuroraBorealis?!

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

Russty_

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

Karen

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

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

Bloody Bevo

Jess

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

Steeeve

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?
Thanks!

Lekdog

Hill over Ash for job security…injury risk of course

Of those two I would flick Dawson I think

Goaheadmakemymacrae

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
Sicily-Docherty-Lukosius-Noble-Brander-Starcevich
Bench: BZT-BWilliams(nuff)

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

TommyC99

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

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

TommyC99

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

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

TommyC99

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

Nic Naitanui – continue to hold or consider shifting?

Lekdog

Shift

MADMAX

Yeah I'd shift.

Gaffa

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

Pman

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

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

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

Anyone?

Russty_

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

redherringfc

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

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

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

Cheers!

Dools

Go option 1…

Nigel K

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_

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

Shake n bake

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

TRIGGA_HAPPY

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="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f914.svg"&gt;

TelescopicCox

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

Cavarra to Sturt or Cameron
BZT or Gould to Rivers

Thoughts on who to trade?

Billioux

Dusty, Toby and now Jelly! Issues.

Des Dooley

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

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

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

Defying_Madness

Yeah cheers guys. Passed on Bennell and kept Robbo

Russty_

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

Backline help

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

TommyC99

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

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_

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

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

Josh

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

Russty_

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

Josh

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

Russty_

Did you get it done in time Josh?

Josh

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

Des Dooley

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

Jess

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

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

Dane

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.

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

Des Dooley

Pittonet JS is solid till round 10 …Do it

Shake n bake

Whitfield night over l think.

Russty_

Jeez I hope not! 8 points

Shake n bake

He’s out

Russty_

Wonderful !…gotta love this game

Holty01

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

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

Russty_

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

πŸ˜‚

TRIGGA_HAPPY

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

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

Shake n bake

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_

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

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

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_

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

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

Russty_

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

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

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

Russty_

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

TBone_23

Take that mate, great captain score

Jackson

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

Jess

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

Stupid Coach

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

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 ?

Pman

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

Russty_

Last?…brown or Mcinerny

Jess

Bennell will kill it imo

Russty_

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.

Dash

BZT or Gould to Rivers?
Comden to D Cameron

Only 1 trade left?

Jess

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

Dash

Reckon hang onto BZT or trade Gould for now?

s.c.tragic

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

Choppers

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

s.c.tragic

Thanks using chrome everything else fine just SC.

Westy

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

Greg Rowell

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

Shake n bake

Cunnington mckinerney out

Jess

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

Jess

Worth remembering for the community to take the E off Mckinerney

Jess

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

hedski

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

Shit I got that wrong too, McInerney πŸ‘

Shake n bake

I did have Whit 🀦‍♂️

The Ranger

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

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

hedski

So do I πŸ€ͺ

Shake n bake

Hill withdrawn from freo

Jess

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

Jess

Rough week with all these changes

Westy

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

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

hedski

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

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

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.

Jorg Ancrath

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

TBone_23

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

Groan

TOPHAWK1

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

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

TBone_23

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

TommyC99

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

TommyC99

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

Shake n bake

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

TommyC99

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

Shake n bake

Game is postponed

The Lost Boys

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

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

Jorg Ancrath

SC goes on. No bench cover, bad luck.

hedski

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

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

The Jinx

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

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

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!

The Ranger

Or the projected score

Rabbits16

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

dontblushbaby

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

Holty01

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

this season is rather unfortunate isn't it

Holty01

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?

Jorg Ancrath

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

Derek

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

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

Did it in league. Postponed it till Monday.

Derek

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

Derek

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

hedski

I believe it's under section 20 rule cv19

Shake n bake

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

TommyC99

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

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_

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

Good game today Russty!

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

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_

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

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

Russty_

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

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

What happens if you've got Gawn as captain?

Russty_

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

Red

Makes sense

G Train

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_

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

G Train

They just announced it, best 18 players.

holty01

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

G Train

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

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

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.

G Train

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.

G Train

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.

B-Mac

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

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

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

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

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_

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.

Shake n bake

18 highest scoring players will only be scored

Shake n bake

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

Russty_

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

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

Gibbs

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

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

Dan

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

Russty_

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

Derek

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

Russty_

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

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_

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

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

G Train

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

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

Jess

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

Jess

Ridiculously unfair. Screw sc

mick

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

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

Jess

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

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

Input
Go be a tool somewhere else

Jess

Im glad the unfair as hell rules have benefited you…

Jess

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

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

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

Ben Bretel

can our emergency players count in our best 18

holty01

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

Russty_

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_

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

Russty_

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_

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?

Neverweaken

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

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

Russty_

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

holty01

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

Hold. will explain later

holty01

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

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

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

DavidC

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

holty01

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

DavidC

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

Jorg Ancrath

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

Agree

DavidC

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

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

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

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.
