The Panic Room – Round 4

Published by Kev on

With Foz making his debut as Panic Room writer last week threatening my place in the group chat, I’m back on deck this week. It seems I can no longer just lob in occasionally with an on point snappy Simpsons reference (I don’t see why not? Patch has been doing that for years). Patch’s “contributions” aside, I’m back this week as your bearer of bad news, your carrier of consternation, your provider of PANIC! LETS GOOO

Newz you can Uze

Thursday games are constant pain for the Panic Room so we’re just going to gloss over that. There was a debut for Louis Butler (49SC), a cheapie def/mid you can use to swing with Starcevich or Rivers if he holds his spot next week. Bont went huge, Heeney disappointed and Justin McInerney scored a handy 74. 

Tonight the Giants regain Greene and Jelly for their game against the Pies. They are also sending out a sacrificial lamb in the form of Shane Mumford to get slaughtered by Brodie Grundy instead of Sam Jacobs. Rookie Jye Caldwell has been dropped. The Darcy Cameron experiment lasted all of two games, dropped in favour of Mason Cox

Port aren’t doing much at the selection table but the Eagles are making a mini statement after a slow start by making four changes, but I think we can all agree that Tom Hickey is never the answer. JGov is back though. The Tiges have made a similar statement, dropping four for Maddie’s Game against the Saints. Marlion Pickett is out and will hurt most of us, but Dusty is back in for those that held. We’ve got a new rookie! Sam Philp (MID – 121.8k) is making his debut against the Dons who have lost Dyson Heppell (ankle) for the clash. There’s a newbie at Freo too, Caleb Serong (MID – 175.8k) will debut alongside the returning Stephen Hill. As expected, popular rookie Sam Sturt is out with an ankle injury. Gold Coast are *gasp* unchanged.

On Sunday, the magnificent Mr Zorko has been named with potential debutant Connor Ballenden (FWD – 123.9k). Adelaide have turned to *checks notes* Bryce Gibbs as they attempt to salvage something from the season. Shane McAdam (FWD – 123.9k) could make his debut. In expected but ultimately frustrating news, Harley Bennell is being managed at the Dees. Kosi Pickett is amongst the possible ins. The Cats are throwing Darcy Fort at ruck behemoth Max Gawn after losing Rhys Stanley to a knee injury. Brandan Parfitt returns after impressing against the Hawks in round 2. In the final game for the week, the Hawks have added four names without making any outs. Their opponents, North Melbourne, could unleash Jack Mahony (MID / FWD – 117.3k) and Tristan Xerri (RUC / FWD -123.9k) for us. Ben Cunnington has been named to return.    


A slightly (significantly) shortened collection of breakevens this week as Footywire had a bad week and has given up.

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

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

We’re all scrambling to to get those sweet, sweet premium midfield points. There’s been some massive scores on this line so far (and some not so massive, looking at you Jelly!). While your Real Deal Lachie Neale’s and your #FyfeIsLyf’s will set you back a pretty penny, value is the name is of the game this year. 

My previous experience with North Melbourne players comes in the form of Todd Goldstein (pretty good) and Shaun Higgins (no good, very bad, awful) but young Roo Jy Simpkin has an average of 125 across the first 3 games of the season. Last week in absence of Ben Cunnington, the 59-gamer put the midfield unit on his back on his way to a monster 140-point haul. His midfield time looks pretty locked in to me, he’s still under 500k and any future tag will likely go the way of Cunnington, leaving Jy to strut his stuff for the remainder of the season. 

(BONUS: If you don’t have Matt Rowell yet, ignore all that and grab him. The kid is a freak)


Josh · 26/06/2020 at 11:19

Thoughts on Long and Noble to Simpkin and Williamson?

    Lekdog · 26/06/2020 at 12:59

    Don't hate it

TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 11:20

Awesome write up as always Patch! It’s Panic time! Is Brodie Grundy a late out??? We wait nervously….😰

    Lekdog · 26/06/2020 at 12:58

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 13:35

    Sorry Kev!! Patch and the panic room….Old habits die hard. Nice write up!👌

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 14:06

    Maybe you'd better get tested for covid mate, I think you're a bit delirious 😉
    Love ya work Kev, good to see you back.

      Jess · 26/06/2020 at 16:12

      Grundy apparently all good. Rumors spread by FB idiots who are going bad this year

Mitch is Back · 26/06/2020 at 12:08

Please help community, I am tossing up between 3 trades.

The selections table has done me no favours, with zero bench coverage across all lines, and currently a donut in the forward line.

I have locked in 1 trade this week already Dunkley to Viney.

Leaves me with a trade and $142k in the bank.

I am considering the following, and my hand may be forced by a late out tonight –

A. Grundy to Pittonet (may be forced) – gives me $540k to upgrade next week, but still wear the donut in the forward line.

B . Whitfield to Petracca/Simpkin – with the view to buying Whitfield in 4 weeks time at $450k, still would have a donut in the forward line.

C . Sturt to a forward up to $292,400, means 22 scoring players, if so who?

I wouldn't be surprised to see either Grundy or Whitfield as late outs tonight in which case my hand may be forced, but assuming both play, I would appreciate the communities thoughts.

Playing for league wins, and happy to wear a donut for long-term success.

John · 26/06/2020 at 12:10

Sums up my season so far, I have 5/7 of the Potassium Benzoate! Players, on the upside having Neale, Grundy and Gawn as potential VC & C options is proving to be a first world problem for me as to who to leave out? If Neale was playing anyone else but the Crows I’d give him a rest this week.

Connor · 26/06/2020 at 12:18

Have seen comments that Whitfield was out but he has been named on teamsheet on, can anyone confirm either way?

    TBone_23 · 26/06/2020 at 12:49

    Whitfield named on team sheet so as far as we all know he’s in mate

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 14:07

    I reckon he'll be ok Connor, apparently he was training fully on Tues.

TelescopicCox · 26/06/2020 at 12:25

First trade was Dunkley to Simpkin, so hoping it works out. Not sure of the best use of my 2nd:

A) Sturt to Fort
B) McAsey to Pittonet (R3 – downside is i've missed the price rise already)
C) McAsey to Hateley – sneaky mid price POD
D) Hold 2nd trade

    Mitch is Back · 26/06/2020 at 13:12

    B or C

    Pittonet still has money to make over the next 4 weeks.

    Don't mind the Hateley pick, but needs to see more midfield time

Choppers · 26/06/2020 at 13:46

Seriously thinking of a left field move here. Have 343K and 23 trades left…
Grundy to Pittonet and (Grundy has gone 179 115 103 in his last 3, maybe carrying an injury)
Sturt to Sicily (via Brander).

That would then allow me to get Bontempelli next round.

Any thoughts on this?

    Mitch is Back · 26/06/2020 at 13:58

    Like it, contemplating the same Grundy to Pittonet move.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 14:01

    I don't mind it Choppers, the way rucks are scoring this year, I don't believe we necessarily HAVE to have to big 2, it'll be hard enough getting to the standard 'full premo' from the past with the limited weeks available, I reckon the best we can hope for this season is the best scoring team at finals time, whether it be a team with or without the big 2 rucks and including a bunch of mid pricers still.
    It'll sure be a bonus if we can keep Rowell in the mids all year too.

      Choppers · 26/06/2020 at 14:48

      Thanks Russty/Mitch. Depending on teams, I reckon I'll do it.

    NDD · 26/06/2020 at 16:27

    I am doing the same 2 moves onward and upwards.. gets me tracca and caleb daniels next week instead of round 8 or 9 NDD

Mikee · 26/06/2020 at 14:09

Great work as usual! <img src="; width="1"/> <img src="; width="1"/>

Steeeve · 26/06/2020 at 14:45

Brought in Macrae for Dunkley. Surely Bont will cop the tag I thought. Nope Macrae. At least in future teams will know to tag Bont — without company he is absurdly damaging.

Also forgot to E McInerney which means this week on field with no cover I will have: NED MCHENRY. He's named in the guts at least but good lord help me.

    Tiger · 26/06/2020 at 18:44

    Bont should be fine as they have played the teams with good taggers. Macrae more of a worry as playing on a wing and attending less centre bounces. Might be ok until Dunkley comes back.

Cliffy · 26/06/2020 at 14:50

Great read as always legends!

Now I need some advice community, I’m honestly holding out on my trades until I know for sure there are no late changes tonight to either Whitfield or Grundy (or heaven forbid anyone else playing tonight).

Here’s my team:

DEF: Laird, Doc, Short, Doedee, Noble, Starc (Rivers, O’Connor)
MID: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Danger, Coniglio, Rowell, Pickett, Budarick (T.Brown, McInerney, Bennell)
RUCK: Grundy, Gawn (Comben)
FWD: Whitfield, Dusty, Smith, Bewley, Taylor, Sturt (Brander, M.King)

24 trades left and $130,500 in salary.

Gonna loop McInerney’s score on for Pickett, easy decision there. But my question is anyway, if Grundy were to miss tonight, is it not crazy to trade him to Pittonet, and then this in turn allows me to trade someone like a Noble to a premo easily?


    Cliffy · 26/06/2020 at 14:51

    Oh additionally should note, no urgency for me to move on Sturt since he’s not playing and losing value, so gonna use him to rookie loophole Brander and M.King this round.

      Mitch is back · 26/06/2020 at 15:15

      Agree that Grundy to Pittonet is an appealing trade, even if Grundy plays.

      Pittonet is $400k cheaper, will rapidly rise in price, has no competition for the #1 ruck role at least until/if Kreuzer returns, and should continue to score well. He has actually outscored Grundy the last 2 weeks.

      If Grundy’s our the trade is a no brainer.

        NDD · 26/06/2020 at 16:29

        Teague said Pitto is the no. 1 regardless of Kreuzer

cattery · 26/06/2020 at 15:52

nic nat to pitto
kelly to simpkin/sidebottom
danger to simpkin/sidebottom

    Mitch is back · 26/06/2020 at 17:20

    Nic Nat to Pittonet

Rivo · 26/06/2020 at 16:05

Excellent work again Kev! Bench issue for many this round. Trying to be patient until Sunday teams announced tonight.

I have forward cover after yesterday moving Sturt to Vandermeer. However with D. Cameron at F8, I may need to swing him over to cover Grundy if he is a late out – by trading Conroy to Xerri or another forward.

Provided Starcevich is named then Defence appears covered on field. Bench is B.Williams & Gould;

Mid bench cover not there also – I have Pickett, Bennell & Robertson.

Likely remaining trade being considered –

1. Robertson to Philp for mid cover;
2. Robertson to Williamson via DPP swing of Rivers to mid bench;
3. B. Williams do Williamson;
4. Conroy to Xerri/J.Jones via DPP swing (Cameron to cover for Grundy).
5. Conroy to Williamson via Williams DPP.

Ok, my head hurts now.

Bottom line is mid cover v defence cover. What’s the preference?

    Connor · 26/06/2020 at 17:15

    Depends on Grundy. If he is out, I think you have to do 4/5 and get Cameron's points on field. If he plays, consider holding, otherwise 2

      Rivo · 26/06/2020 at 17:41

      Cheers Connor.👍🏽 At least on paper with Sunday teams now announced I may be ok. Keeping an eye on late outs for tonight now!

L G · 26/06/2020 at 16:29

I'm thinking Whitfield to Petrappa, with the intent to upgrade a mid price up to Whitfield in a few weeks. Is this crazy community ?

    Jess · 26/06/2020 at 17:08

    How many trades do you have? Either way I'm tempted to say no and look elsewhere in your team – Such cash grabs dont tend to work out as well as planned. All that matters is that he is an ultra premium in the fwd line and is (hopefully) playing

    Mitch is back · 26/06/2020 at 17:22

    Not crazy, Petracca is a keeper and still affordable, Whitfield will be cheap in weeks to come

      L G · 26/06/2020 at 18:14

      Whitfield predicted to drop to $440K (from $537K) in 2 weeks. $100k cash generation from a rookie is a good result, this seems like a safer option.
      Will Petrappa be a top fwd at the end of the year… Like everyone says its hard to trust a player that has burned you in the past

      NDD · 26/06/2020 at 19:44

      Petracca still good value at sub 500

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:27

    I don't usually reveal my PODS but young Jack Martin is an absolute star and I'd be getting him before Petracca

    HarryH76 · 28/06/2020 at 13:39

    In other years, crazy. Not this year- it's smart

NDD · 26/06/2020 at 16:34

great article as usual Kev. Always informative best writer by a mile. NDD

What_Bear · 26/06/2020 at 17:20

Hi all,

Probably no wrong answer, but Petrappa or Simpkins?


    TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 17:21


    holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 18:57


The Jinx · 26/06/2020 at 17:26

All this trading out Grundy and Whitfield are interesting, looking to be PODs for the next few weeks. Same thing happened with Sicily after Rnd 2 many traded him out. Bont I too was eager to boot him out, but stay firmed with my Premos.

I picked these guys for a reason, and expected they will drop in price at some stage. But most of all they are elite players that will be top 10 in their respective position at the of the season.

This year maybe different to other year, but we still need to watch our trades and stick with our plan we set out for team.

I for one is treating it like any other season, stick with the plan and Premos I picked unless injury arise. At the start of season we didn't have much of rookies to choose from, now they are popping up everywhere and making as us cash. Timing and patience fellas and of course a bit of luck

The Jinx

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 17:34

    Could not agree more Jinx! I started with Bontempelli and Sicily. Both still in my side and not going anywhere. I have Whitfield and despite being frustrated with his stupid play, he can stay in my team and hope he starts making good decisions on the field. He is a gun. Cheers Jinx. TH

      L G · 26/06/2020 at 18:32

      What about a sideways trade with the intention of bringing back Whitfield in 2 weeks for $100k cheaper as an additional premium…

mick · 26/06/2020 at 17:41

So is Max going to beat up on Fort at the G or is more likely to pump out a sub-100 like he has in 50% of his games so far this year?

Reader request.
Can delete any whingeing posts about how peoples seasons were ruined by by Dees and Dons not playing last week from this page?

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 18:15

    That was last week Mick haha, hopefully none of that stuff this week, not sure how Maxy will go against money would be on Max dominating.

      TREV · 26/06/2020 at 19:35

      Yeah Go with footy .Max will have a big game against Fort .He wouldn't do so well against Stanley though..Wonder how mummy will go tonight

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:35

      Hope so mate I'm currently giving him the C over VC Neale and I don't have a late playing looper.
      Does sportsbet take bets on highest SC score? I reckon if I leave the C on Max Lachie will pump out a 300

TommyC99 · 26/06/2020 at 17:54

Hey guys,
any merit in trading a whitfield to the likes of fyfe or Sicily? I hate trading premos and last time he was coming off an injury affected game with a high BE he scored 170. But i have 26 trades left going into this week which is basically 2 a week, so i feel obliged to trade so they dont go to waste.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 18:14

    I don't think you'd ever regret going Whitfield to Fyfe Tommy, could get him back in or someone else might be going better than Whit at that time.

      Westy · 28/06/2020 at 08:38

      Except if he got injured. I dodged a bullet there.

Pman · 26/06/2020 at 17:56

My two Rucks are Grundy and Nic Nat and despite Nic Nat scoring a great 137 last week I was considering trading him to Pittonet for the cash generation as currently only have $4K after using all my spare change to turn Cavarra into Nick Hayne (via DPP) yesterday.

Have read a few rumours that Grundy isn't going to play tonight and if that's the case I will trade him to Pittonet, if Grundy is playing tonight then what are the communities thoughts on trading Nic Nat v's Grundy for Pittonet? Ultimately I'll be seeking to turn Pittonet into either Goldstein/Gawn.

Good trades or should I sit tight and not trade either Grundy or Nic Nat id both playing?

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 18:11

    Hey Pman, out of Grundy or Nicnat to pitto, I'd go Nicnat by miles, just because of his fragility, I know many coaches are trading Grundy out but I'm keeping him, he's a tough lad and will get through whatever's ailing him, can't help thinking Nic Nat isn't one incident away from being done for good.

      TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 18:15

      I am holding Grundy unless he is a late out. Are you whacking the VC on him if he plays?

        Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 18:33

        I already wasted my VC on Macrae, that went well!
        Got the C on Neale so hopefully his usual 160

          Pman · 26/06/2020 at 19:15

          Neale is a safe bet Rusty.

        Pman · 26/06/2020 at 18:36

        If Grundy does play then I will keep the VC on him….he scored 150 against Mummy in last years Prelim Final

          Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 18:46

          Yeah if he doesn't play it's a different story, I'm lucky to have my perma-donut Xerri playing just in case Grundy doesn't get up.

      Pman · 26/06/2020 at 18:34

      As a Pies fan I really don't wont to trade out my favourite Man Bun and will only do so if he's ruled out as I have nil R3 coverage. Agree re Nic Nat being a ticking timebomb as far as injury is concerned, he as made a little bit of coin and I need the cash generation that Pittonet will give me. Fingers crossed that he plays tonight!

      Pman · 26/06/2020 at 18:34

    NDD · 26/06/2020 at 18:51

    I have traded Grundy to Pitto. but still think he's a gun He needs to beat Pitto by 40 each week for 5 weeks for my trade to fail .I have enough to get him back in 5 weeks Only my take but it's a numbers game and his price on offer is just too good, also I don't think he is as good as last year. Looks sluggish and disposal is sloppy. We will see but good luck to pies supporters tonight Took your advice on board Shake. but. cheers lads NDD

hedski · 26/06/2020 at 17:58

Welcome back Kev.
I'm holding trades until late outs announced for tonight.
Long to Doedee via Brander is my main target.
Not sure if I should do the Whitfield cash grab, if Grundys out I'll dump him for Pitto.

hedski · 26/06/2020 at 17:58

        How much is Petrappa gonna score this week Neil?

          NDD · 26/06/2020 at 19:22

          a good question rust As i traded PITTO IN FOR Grundy it means my next weeks plans to get Tracca and Caleb in are now a goer. so I will be hoping for 90 to 100. not too high as i don't wan't him rising same as Caleb oops too late there.What's happening with Marshall .? He was so good last year. I noticed GAT got rid of Long I have bagged him but he is still in my team Is he in yours ? cheers NDD

            Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:42

            He is still but not for long (pardon the pun!) I'm waiting in case something happens to my trade target.
            Marshall was buggered from the start this year Neil when Ratts said him and Ryder will 50-50 the Ruck duties.
            Marshall is a lone wolf ruck I think, like Goldy.

        hedski · 26/06/2020 at 19:22

        Youl keep Neil 😹😹

          NDD · 26/06/2020 at 19:48

    hedski · 26/06/2020 at 19:13

    HA ha, sry fellas, I put up a comment about my proposed trades and waiting on late outs and it got vetted so I said ok.
    I guess it's gone into the interwebs.
    Any late outs?
    Why doesn't the AFL app have final teams on it any more?

      TREV · 26/06/2020 at 19:39

      Cats are somewhat struggling and I think Max will give them first use. Danger gone back a tad but always dangerous.

      Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:39

      No late outs Hed, all good mate

The Lost Boys · 26/06/2020 at 18:19

Need to get rid of Dan vwe have a problem' houstan, and trying to decide between Ridley, Doedee or take a punt on Hill. What do you champs think?

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/06/2020 at 18:22

    I reckon the Ridler first, and then Doedee just because he plays for the Crows. That club is in disarray after dropping Matt Crouch.

      The Lost Boys · 26/06/2020 at 18:34

      Other trade is Davis to simpkin so only 22k spare after that. I guess I could go Saas or Short, but doubt they are keepers. Think I'll go Ridley thanks guys!

      WithAllDueRespect · 27/06/2020 at 10:12


    TommyC99 · 26/06/2020 at 18:23

    I'd be trading up as opposed to trading down, but if its to raise funds for another trade then i guess its not too bad. Id pick doedee but thats probably because i owned him for his 110 last week 🙂

Sarah · 26/06/2020 at 18:47

Thinking of going Whitfield to Pittonet and then Sturt to Williamson via a couple of DPP. Will sacrifice my score this week but can't see any other way to generate significant cash, especially missing a week of rises on Melbourne players.

Am I crazy?

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:02

    Do what you gotta do I say Sarah, I'll probs have to double downgrade next week to have any cash going forward.
    Gotta get Pittonet in if you can.

      NDD · 26/06/2020 at 19:25

      Brings up a good point Russty DO MELBOURNE PLAYERS GET A PRICE RISE FROM THE ESS. GAME ? gawn scores 150 bothgames does he go up plenty or only one?

        Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:49

        No idea mate, that sort of talk makes my brain hurt, just hope there's no more dodgy tests stuffing up our Supercoach.

          mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:46

          Was it a dodgy test?
          AFL seriously hate Carlton this could be a plan to get rid of em for good

        Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:03

        Maybe only one Neil cause they're only giving the higher of the 2 scores when the postponed game is replayed.
        Not much of an advantage for the ones who suffered the most.

    Mitch is back · 26/06/2020 at 19:04

    If your proposal includes not getting Pittonet’s score, yes your crazy

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:46

    No one ever won by doing standard stuff Sarah. Mix it up a bit and enjoy the ride

Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:04

It's kinda weird not having the Panic Room page left aligned like all the other articles, is there a reason for this?

    Lekdog · 29/06/2020 at 09:24

    It is weird.

      Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 12:23

      Cheers Lek, better late than never.

TommyC99 · 26/06/2020 at 19:06

any rookies worth going early on? Trying to offload sturt. Would rather be able to loop max king but can field him if there arent any options!
Stephen HIll you'd think has the JS, but is his injury history too big of a risk?

    Pman · 26/06/2020 at 19:18

    Hold off on Sturt if you can as he still has negative break even and will make coin and can serve as Emergency and Captain loopholes.

dontblushbaby · 26/06/2020 at 19:06

No changes further tonight, phew !

Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 19:20

Who gets Boared tonight? Sidey, Pendles or Adams. I'm thinking Sidey.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:50

    Sidey after last week's 150 I reckon Jorg

TommyC99 · 26/06/2020 at 19:20

Field Buderick or Brown?

    Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 19:24

    Toss of a coin. Bude, but not with conviction.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:39

    Budda must be full of confidence after getting the rising star

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:32

    I'd go Buderick the bloke is real hard nut Caleb Daniel type. I like the little that get given a go they've usually got far superior brains and skills to the guys that get drafted for being tall.
    I say that in hindsight because I played Brown on field, at least he outscored Cogs

hedski · 26/06/2020 at 19:24

Long to Doedee is happening.
Tempted to take the Whitfield cash grab.

    TommyC99 · 26/06/2020 at 19:25

    Also tempted hedski. Fyfe is screaming my name ahahaha

Dean · 26/06/2020 at 19:28

Community please clarify and confirm something.

I understand if I had 1 non player lets say in my midfield and selected 2 emergencies that I would get the lowest score of the two emergencies.

However if I select 2 emergencies in my midfield and have 2 non players in my midfield do I get both my emergency scores in the midfield?

    Mitch is back · 26/06/2020 at 19:31


Lach · 26/06/2020 at 19:40


Tom Green being moved on! What is Tom Williamson's JS like at Carlton? Not many other rookies unfortunately

    Connor · 26/06/2020 at 19:41

    Tom Green is playing tonight?

      Lach · 26/06/2020 at 19:42

      Well bugger me he is too haha

      Scrap that

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:44

    Better since Newman went down…he has to get a decent run at it sometime.

    Lach · 26/06/2020 at 19:44

    Might still go Sturt too Williamson unless someone else can point out a forward rookie?
    Got dpp to get William son if Js is solid

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:28

    Geeez mate this site saved you from a monumental mistake tonight. You better send them an xmas card

holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 19:40

Name of the game is make money quickly. No rookies on the bubble who I can bring in. Only player I see to make good money quickly and reliable to score points is Pittonet. Will reluctantly trade out Grundy and upgrade another line. Watch him pump out 200 tonight.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:47

    I'm a bit worried about Pitto maintaining his rage, I got him in for Jacobs though and not Grundy..Pitto will still make some nice cash though which we all need.

      Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:21

      He just has to keep making money mate. 95 average would be lovely. Anything more a bonus.

    NDD · 26/06/2020 at 19:50

    did likewise we have 6 different Bont could swing it Agree. and Pitto makes coin

    Maverick_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:57

    Wish I'd made this move two weeks ago on Pitt instead I held Naismith payed him the due respect he deserves after a handy preseason and R1 and look where that got me. Now Pitt is far too pricey to grab next week.
    Hopefully pittonet can keep up the scoring for you holty and russty

    PS I do have ceglar to swing into the ruck via Cameron but still not ideal.

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:40


Maverick_ · 26/06/2020 at 19:54

Trade 1 : Dunkley too Sympkin . Relatively happy

Trade 2 : Whitfield too Fyfe . This was done right at the bounce . I Just believe Whitfield is gonna bleed serious cash and not having Fyfe or Neale is killing me… Hope to grab Whitfield later when his closer to 450k

Whitfield may go 150+ tonight to punish me

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 20:18

    Good trades there I think Mav, Fyfe is uber and without Neale yet, you need 1 or 2 you can depend on in the mids, hopefully Simpkin can help you to get Neale at some point.
    CD seems to be a bit lean issuing out the points on the Giants side of things at quarter time.

      Maverick_ · 26/06/2020 at 20:22

      I hope so russty.

      Whitfield looked to be absolutely everywhere that quarter stiff to only have 28SC points was very surprised when I looked.

        Connor · 26/06/2020 at 21:07

        If it was Bont you traded you'd be in trouble, fortunately Whitfield isn't quite the golden child of CD… good trade!

          Maverick_ · 26/06/2020 at 21:32

          Thankfully I have Bont and have held CDs love child, he is going to benefit from no Dunkley I hope

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 21:32

    Whitfield's barely scored anything since quarter time, not looking good for Cogs owners too.

      Maverick_ · 27/06/2020 at 08:10

      Looks like it may pay off hopefully Fyfe can go big for me. Very pleased too have held Tom Green also almost tonned up for me.

      About time I get some luck hahah

Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 20:29

Why is Cogs playing full forward. Doing nothing for anyone there. Just insane.

    Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 20:43

    Gonna be a long weekend waiting to rage trade him out of side. He's a passenger.

      Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 20:46

      Can he get to double digits before half time?

        Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 20:49

        I doubt it. He can score 80 points in a qtr, given a chance. So frustrating. I'll lose all h2hs because of him.

          Jorg Ancrath · 26/06/2020 at 21:39

          Huge qtr by Cogs. Doubled his score.

            hedski · 26/06/2020 at 21:45

            Kind of hoping it'll be another bye round so Cogs and T.Browns scores don't count.

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:43

    My fault,I picked up camerons wife on Tuesday and used her phone to trade in Cogs on Wednesday morning after hearing dunks had done a fetlock.
    What the hell is Leon doing wasting time examining a phone when there's a team to coach?

NDD · 26/06/2020 at 20:57

Put Coniglio where he should be and the Giants are miles in front. Common Cameron do it don't think just do it

Ja191 · 26/06/2020 at 21:22

Cox has cost me $50 absolute potato

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 21:37

    How so?…did you bet he wouldn't score more than 10 points?

      Ja191 · 26/06/2020 at 21:43

      Hahaha would chuck the bank on that russty. Needed Collingwood to be up at half time drops a sitter at the end of the half

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:26

      This one is even funnier than the Greens and Browns one from NDD.
      Well done rusty keep em coming

JugHead · 26/06/2020 at 21:23

Danger still a must have? It could be a very cheap trade up from Viney after this week……..

Connor · 26/06/2020 at 21:36

Whitfield just annoying me now. First he scores hardly anything for a good half, hasn't had a touch since and is scaling backwards (should've traded)

NDD · 26/06/2020 at 21:53

greens are killing browns

    The Jinx · 26/06/2020 at 22:22

    And sums it up Brown onfield while Green on the Pine. Just glad his there making cash for me. Hmmmm Naismith and now Howe just what feared, hopefully no more injuries and my team is done for. And to think it's only two games in.

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:39

      4 games mate

        The Jinx · 27/06/2020 at 02:54

        Two games in, not round mate, there's still another 7 games to play.

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:38

    Woo hoo T.Brown outscored Cogs by 2!
    Any other week I'd be happy about that

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:25

    That makes me laugh. I don't know why maybe I'm two sheets to the wind but even after reading it 3 or 4 times I still chuckle

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 09:23

    Had Green on the bench with the E on him. Its loophole time. Harley Bennell is actually useful! Who would have thought. Time for a run on field mate and earn myself 94SC points. You have any intel on why Bennell was omitted Neil? Cheers. TH

Shake n bake · 26/06/2020 at 21:58

Howe doesn’t look good

Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 21:59

Gee I hope Howe's ok, that looked sickening, his knee went sideways heaps.

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:21

    Looked real bad we'll be trading him this week.
    Hopefully SC will make it another best 18 round because so many players are out through injury already.
    I mean if all those who had bombers and Demons get given a break by not having to take donuts it would be unfair if I have to take a sub 50 from Cogs after bringing him in for Dunkley

      Defying_Madness · 27/06/2020 at 09:28

      what????? not following the logic at all there. Injuries have always been a part of supercoach

        mick · 27/06/2020 at 12:07

        In the eyes of Australian Law a vocational illness is equal to a vocational injury but you seem to think that its ok for teams to given a legup because of an illness but not given a legup because of injury. Thats called discrimination.

          mick · 27/06/2020 at 12:20

          What I'm alluding to is that last week my team was Penalised a 100+ points by SC not allowing 4 players scores to be included in my total score. Why should my team suffer just because the selection choices of others left them with the inability to field 22 players? It's not my fault.

    Pman · 26/06/2020 at 22:31

    He's been Collingwood's best player this season and hopefully it looks worse than it is. If it's really serious then sideways swap to Maynard is a lock for me.

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:33

      Will Maynard have the same role if Howe goes?

        Pman · 26/06/2020 at 23:11

        That's a good question, in the main he probably will but whether he can have the same impact and SC output without Howe is the question? I'd like to see Mihocek go down back to replace Howe, particularly if we are going to persist with Cox in the forward line who was a passenger tonight. I traded in Haynes this week so are pretty keen on Maynard for Howe although if Stephen Hill cracks 90+ that could be an interesting alternative….

          Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:18

          Maynard looks great this year Pman, has he turned the corner to becoming a premo defender?

            Pman · 27/06/2020 at 11:53

            4 consecutive weeks of 100+ scores would suggest so and he appears to be fitter than he's ever been. I'm 99% sure I'll sideways trade Howe for Maynard next week.

              mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:18

              He looks like angry bloke pman. has he ever been rubbed out?

          mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:20

          Hill cracks 90+ what?
          Bones maybe
          He's a risk as much as Bennell was I need to see him get crunched and jog away with a smile before I bring him in. Although backline is very thin for cheap point scorers after not getting on Starsky

dontblushbaby · 26/06/2020 at 22:19

So Grundys sitting on 131 atm before scaling,who's taking the his VC score ?

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 22:29

    I went Macrae Dbb but I would, it's only 30 points difference even if Neale gets 160

    Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:34

    Yeah saw that mate. Was amazed he got so many. GWS we’re sharing his raps all night. Still did influence the game however.

      Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:35


      Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:35


AuroraBorealis?! · 26/06/2020 at 22:26

That one stings, really need to learn to take our chances. Had about 3 or 4 set shots inside 50 in the last qtr

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:31

    Bad luck AB, and rotten luck with Howe too.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 26/06/2020 at 23:34

      Yeah really looked sickening, hoping it's not as bad as it looks. Overall quite a shitty night, although i did manage to win $875 on a multi, so that lessens the blow slightly.

TelescopicCox · 26/06/2020 at 22:34

So the Hately pick has backfired. I knew it was a risk but in a strange season I went for it. Hoping he bounces back next week

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:31

    I'd be more worried about him keeping his spot in the first place, that team is notorious from dropping talented young players before they get a decent run.

Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:38

Think the old Pies will struggle now. Howe has been there barometer this year. That knee did not look good. Hopefully it’s not as bad as it looked.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 22:41

    I think it is pretty bad, Bucks on 7 just said…..that impact looked like one of those horrible broken leg incidents where the leg goes the wrong way, such a shame for Howe, was having a great year.

      Pman · 26/06/2020 at 22:47

      Bucks states "looks like both PCL and MCL and we won;t see him for some time". Not good as he's probably been our most important player this year and almost impossible to replace.

        mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:23

        MCL is uncommon and longtime to heal even after surgery. it's the only CL that stress from bending over and gives the old confidence a real smash

mick · 26/06/2020 at 22:49

What was Tom Greens breakeven?
How much will he increase?
Like many I got sucked into Picket and rivers and need a point scoring money maker

    Holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 22:58

    Would have been about 20 Mick. I still have him but sitting on the pine. Had Brown onfield instead. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:00

    B/E was 23
    prediction was for 41 to rise about 8k so maybe about 20k, not sure.

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:16

      He's in mate. Bloody rippa.
      Things are looking up, now I just need a 5 goal game from the cherry I mean xerri

        Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:21

        He's about to bust his Xerri lol

    Kangaz · 26/06/2020 at 23:11

    I swapped rivers to bench for bennell. That will give me greens score as an emergency 🙂

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:17

      reading between the lines that says "Nah Nah Nee Nah nah"

        Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:22


holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 23:02

Well 271 after 4 played. Ouch.
Could be playing for leagues after this week if something doesn’t change.

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:05

    Join the club mate, I always play for leagues, it's just being realistic although you had a great run last year.

      holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 23:11

      Actually started better this year. Must of started getting too cocky. Tough week last week but hopefully this week will get better.

    NDD · 26/06/2020 at 23:12

    Might finally get you this week Holty Feel we made a big blue dumping Grundy. Might get him back sooner rather than later. He played a good game without dominating and yet scored 135 Shake was right .Howe to Grundy next week ONE trade

      holty01 · 26/06/2020 at 23:16

      He not coming back in my team until Pittonet fattens in price. Defeats the purpose trading him out. He was always going to score more then Pittonet. I must stick with the plan now otherwise I’ll just sideways trade all year and not get anywhere.

        NDD · 27/06/2020 at 00:09

        If gws wasn't sharking Grundy's taps he would have been massive against fair opposition, but of course it is too early and Pitt may surprise ,if not Ceglar's can cover

          holty01 · 27/06/2020 at 10:44

          Pitt can average 95 for the rest of season and will be a win. Lose 40 points in the ruck, gain 40 points in another line while making money. I’m holding for at least 4 weeks.

    Swans2012 · 27/06/2020 at 10:49

    My best year i was ranked 30k after 5 rounds, got to 50 overall After the byes then took one punt too many and went down in a blaze of no trades left glory!
    Don’t give up yet holt!

    Shake n bake · 27/06/2020 at 13:46

    Cogs came out and said of hes position change as a defensive fwd.

Kangaz · 26/06/2020 at 23:16

Take grundys 135 as captain or gamble on neale?

    Choppers · 26/06/2020 at 23:28

    take it….

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:29

    I'd take it, but don't blame me if Neale scores 180,000,000 points

    mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:49


    DavidC · 27/06/2020 at 05:53

    Neale has been my captain every week so far but I think I'll take Grundy's 135, Hope I don't regret it.

      Jorg Ancrath · 27/06/2020 at 06:17

      Neale will get a huge amount of attention. Not sure it will stop him at all, but they'll try. Plus if the Lions have it easy, he may not score quite as many points. Still think he scores around that 130-140 mark, so may as well take Grundy.

        mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:19

        Mitch Robbo seems to deter the taggers on Locky a fair bit.

mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:21

Naismith Howe and Dunks here but I swapped Dunks for that absolute star Coniglio this week

    Russty_ · 26/06/2020 at 23:26

    Jeez Mick I hope you didn't take an ancient amulet from an indian burial ground, that's some bad luck there, although Cameron is to blame for the Cogs score, what's he thinking making him a forward?

      mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:41

      Never been to an Indian Burial ground Russty_ but I did stop a big tree goanna from climbing my fence to eat the nesting wrens last week. Those goanna blokes have some serious magic, it was only 14 degrees and the big bugga was lively as a frog in a sock.
      Cold blooded my ar*e

mick · 26/06/2020 at 23:58

Whats with the censorship?
Variety of opinion is what makes a free society great.
Dictators never create value in a community.
I don't like Purple but I still like Violet crumbles

Jorg Ancrath · 27/06/2020 at 06:21

Cogs was really cranking in that 4th quarter. Shame the game had to finish. Another two quarters and he may have tonned up. I'm really going to enjoy punting his ace and adding him to the top of the 'never again' list.

    Mitch is back · 27/06/2020 at 09:10

    He will probably get the other 51 next week

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 09:44

    Cogs was buggering around up forward for most of the night. WTF was Cameron doing playing him there. The bloke is a hardcore midfielder. I have Cogs too and spewing about that turd he dropped last night. He is the captain FFS. I think he told the coach at 3/4 time to get stuffed and played in the midfield for 40 odd SC points in the last. Too little too late. He better be in the guts next week or his rear end will be torpedoed out of my side.

Mitch is back · 27/06/2020 at 08:33

Best forward rookie under $290k?

Already have Max King, Brander & Budarick.

Any thoughts, must not have played yet this round.

Sturt to ??? To avoid donut, and hopefully stick around long enough to make some $

    Jess · 27/06/2020 at 09:27

    Could take a punt on one the new North rookies – Xerri or Hosie. I'd back Hosie in of the two

    Swans2012 · 27/06/2020 at 10:41

    I’ve been thinking about Darcy fort now that Stanley is out, I think he’s an option

Mitch is back · 27/06/2020 at 09:07

can we play top 18 again this week? Got a few turds I’d like to flush.

One of the players must be covid positive surely

    holty01 · 27/06/2020 at 10:38

    Lol. It would be nice.

TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 09:38

Morning Community. Who do coaches rate the highest of all this week's debutants? Here is the list;

Caleb Serong (Freo)
Tristan Xerri (North)
Jack Mahony (North)
Shane Mc Adam (Crows)
Jamaine Jones (Eagles)
Sam Philp (Blues)
Louis Butler (Dogs)-already played and was OK ish.

I have heard a lot of good things about Sam Philp and Tristan Xerri. If you had pick one to go early on, which one would you select?

Be interesting to gauge coaches views and thoughts. Cheers. TH

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 10:09

    Serong or philp hawk.

      dontblushbaby · 27/06/2020 at 10:13

      Agree with Trigga, Serong was taken at no.8 by Freo, and Philp has been very impressive at training for the Blues, he's lightning quick was a phrase use by one of his coaches

        TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 10:24

        Serong was a high draft pick which I like and the fact that Philp has genuine pace is very very appealing. Thanks for the intel DBB.

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 10:22

      Thanks Trigga! I am not sold on Williamson. I think he is a dud. Might risk it for the biskit and go early on a rook this week. Sam Philp I have heard a lot of good things about. Serong I am going to look into a bit more. Cheers, TH

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 10:44

        Wanna talk about risk.
        Season is shot cogs playing fwd really didnt help so having some fun now
        Brought in hill. 😬
        Risk reward * 100!

          TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 10:52

          Stephen Hill the man made out of glass, but he is all class!! Lets hope he comes through for you Trigga. My trading challenges this week are trying to get either Simpkin or Petracca. I need to punt Sturt and BZT for one of those guys and a rookie. The bubble rooks this week are few and far between, so got to nail the right one early. Sam Philp is yelling at me. Risk and reward, that's what this caper is all about.

Westy · 27/06/2020 at 10:23

Such a shame about Naismith and Howe so far this week.

I don't have Naismith.

What to do next week to replace Howe? Already have Stewart and Daniel and Docherty. Think I might look toward Maynard, Haynes, Short or Sicily. But if I was to go left field, how about Aidan Corr? $288k before this week and tonned up again last night.

    Derek · 27/06/2020 at 13:20

    I have both Naismith and Howe

    I’m think Howe to a rookie and Naismith to Gawn

WTFoxtrot_58 · 27/06/2020 at 11:28

Will prices increase after one round all year? Tried looking for the ruling but could not find it. Has always been 2 previously.

    Pman · 27/06/2020 at 11:55

    I'm pretty sure they will change after 2nd game is completed all season long.

TBone_23 · 27/06/2020 at 12:15

Gday guys, mixed bag from the two games so far. Grundy VC has done enough to take my C off of Neale and put it on Conroy, but on the other end of the spectrum Coniglio has dropped a nasty 49. Noble looped on bench, think a 72 is good enough to take. Who to take off the field though out of Brander or Rivers hmmm..

Connor · 27/06/2020 at 12:55

I have Howe in a draft league, am I just unlucky and have to grab a dud now or what?

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 14:03

    Just grab the next best averaging player, Draft is unlimited trading, it's just Footy ..not good or bad luck.

      Connor · 27/06/2020 at 14:51

      Yeah i know, just unfortunate having to go from the highest averaging defender down to a bloke averaging 80 odd

Tommo · 27/06/2020 at 13:15

Hmmm head says take Grundys VC score but heart says risk it all and go with Gawn C against Geelong. Should be an easy decision to go with Grundy but for some reason Gawn feels like the way to go. What to do what to do…

    Choppers · 27/06/2020 at 13:20

    I'd take the guaranteed 135 if it was me….No one knows the future. Even if Gawn gets 160, its only 25 pts

      Neverweaken · 27/06/2020 at 13:58

      Same issue. Took his score instead of captain Neale

      mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:16

      50 points choppers.
      2 x 135 = 270
      2 x 160 = 320

        Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 16:21

        Sorry Mick but it's actually 25
        270 + 160 = 430
        320 + 135 = 455

Neverweaken · 27/06/2020 at 13:56

To avoid a donut in the mids. Who to trade out? Pickett or Devon Robertson? Is Robertson going to play seniors again and make some money? Or keep Robertson as a loophole for my bench. Or keep Pickett as i guess he will turn it on sometime
And trade to who. I just cant believe that Simpkin can keep it up. He has come from nowhere.
Very tempted to get OMeara.
Finally. Keep Cogs? When he finally went to the midfield he showed what he could do??
Finally finally. Houston continues to survive as I will have to replace Howe next week. Was going to be Houston to Daniel this week until midfield donuts. So Howe to Daniel next week

Shake n bake · 27/06/2020 at 14:18

Watched Houston that qtr. he shouldn’t get a game anywhere!

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 14:27

    He just got a kick, out on the full lol

    mick · 27/06/2020 at 14:36

    Yeah selecting him was a bust but selecting Ebert was a huge win. massive pod and ultra reliable getting too expensive for others now as well

      TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 14:50

      Ebert is flying great POD.

    NDD · 27/06/2020 at 14:45

    my biggest mistake but dumped him early Turd

    TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 14:50

    Houston is an absolute spud. Glad I stayed away from him. Mind you, I have Brander on the field who is dropping a serious turd as well.

      Shake n bake · 27/06/2020 at 15:00

      I traded him this week so curious to see how he’ll go. Wow!

        derek · 27/06/2020 at 20:09

        scored over 50 in the second half

        when the ball is near him he does good. Port are going well this year and it doesn't get into defence much. Hartlett has the juicey SC role down back for them

        i had to hold him. have Naismith and Howe to deal with next week

holty01 · 27/06/2020 at 14:56

Bloody Rozee.

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 15:04

    I'm feeling a bit of Rozee regret too Holty, hopefully he snags a few in the second half.
    This year will be about who has the least amount of spuds left at the end LOL

    Shake n bake · 27/06/2020 at 15:05

    I went Simpkin last week Holty because watching both Simpkin enters a lot of c bounces. With Rozee as just a fwd would likely have a lot more quiet games. Might kick 3 now in the 2nd half now!!

      holty01 · 27/06/2020 at 15:24

      Yeah mate. Only reason I went Rozee was late on Sunday and needed to bring in someone for Petracca. Should have bought in Ebert in hindsight. Will be out next week probably for Petracca again

mick · 27/06/2020 at 15:01

I didn't get SC Gold/stats this year because I've had a gutfull of rupert the rogue auto-billing me for subscriptions I never asked for.

What is Maxs average for his last 10 games at the G

    Good idea on ditching chicken neck. He is a cancer on the Western Democracies. The sooner he dies the better.

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2020 at 17:59

    I'm glad it wasn't just me Mick! I got charged 3 times for my 1 supercoach account over a month. Then I had to prove it and finally refunded . I no longer have the gold now either ..

      Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 19:18

      The Gold or SC Stats as they call it now is just a once off fee, I used to have a subscription to the whole thing but not anymore, never had any trouble with them overcharging or double charging my account, I still like the convenience of the gold features and don't really miss their now locked articles, AFL site is good enough for that

        Maverick_ · 27/06/2020 at 20:13

        Yeah it should be a once off fee but they charged Me then a fortnight later again I was charged and another fortnight charged again.. I will get it again next year but I'm not bothering this season I've sadly lost alot of interest if SC and the AFL in general this season.

TelescopicCox · 27/06/2020 at 15:26

Would Brodie Smith to Doedee be worth a trade? It could free funds to sort out Howe and Naismith next week

    derek · 27/06/2020 at 20:07

    that looks a nice trade

mick · 27/06/2020 at 15:29

During the AFL corona coma I read a few old news stories about aussie rules state of origin games and I came across numerous references to south Australians as 'Crow Eaters' and Western Australian's as "Sand Gropers" and I'm wondering how those names came about.
Do south Australians eat crows?
Are WA beaches full of paedo's?

TOPHAWK1 · 27/06/2020 at 15:32

WTF is going on with Connor Rozee! On track for his second steaming turd in a row. Looks like he hates the hub and is missing his own bed. Useless.

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 16:22

    Gawd, another crud score, looks like he might have to go next week!

    derek · 27/06/2020 at 20:05

    OWines is what is going on

Bells · 27/06/2020 at 16:07

Panic over next week.
Thanks 2020, the nightmare scenario – I've got Naismith and no cash to upgrade. Will have to burn a trade on a premium and downgrade to a rookie if I can find one…
Maybe Tich to Serong is on the cards. 175 for him is way too much though. The rookie prices are stupid this year.
EAD 2020.

mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:29

Anybody been able to calculate what Naismith and Howe will be valued at after this round?
I saw in Barrons post that Naismith b.e was -23 will he be about 320k?

    mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:33

    also, what will Maynard be worth

    AuroraBorealis?! · 27/06/2020 at 18:11

    Hey mate, this site is pretty accurate for calculating price increases/decreases:

    Just type in a players last name in the search bit, click on their name and then on the salary prediction tab. You can enter in scores and see how that effects the value/

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 19:29

    $297600 Naismith
    $538000 for Howe
    About $510000 for Maynard

      mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:09

      top stuff thanks russty_

mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:48

I reckon I might replace Naismith with Hayden McLean. when Naismith was out he scored 101 against Goldy from 4kicks, 3hbslls, 3mks, 3 hitouts, 3tackles and a goal.He was the late in for McInerney
He only got 39 on Thursday due to Naismith being in the game most of the night so his gametime was down. So his price shouldn't increase too much from the current 265k. Ruck only which is the only downer but if he can spit out a couple more tons now that Sam is gone he'll make a few $.
Champ data are loving the rucks this year so he might be a better money maker than Serong TGreen etc.
101 against Goldy in your 5th career game is a pretty good effort

    derek · 27/06/2020 at 19:59

    see how Xerri goes tomorrow

mick · 27/06/2020 at 16:49

Woo Hoo I bought Butler this week he's making up for me getting Cogs as well

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 19:31

    He did well, could be a keeper performing like that.

Bells · 27/06/2020 at 19:07

Tigers have had enough winning. Martin is a spud this year. Jumping off ASAP.

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 19:20

    I feel like sidewaysing half my team but if I do, I'll never get close to full premo, sometimes ya gotta just take it and persevere.

    redherringfc · 27/06/2020 at 19:29

    In a couple of weeks I’ll jump back on. Last time the Saints beat the tigers (and boy, did they beat them) Dusty had a shocker. Richmond went on to win the flag and Dusty didn’t look back.

Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 19:10

Great win Sainters, 15 goals 3 is very impressive, Long not too bad in the end, Butler even better, he's come out of nowhere this year, almost brought him in for Long too this week. Dusty was pretty average as were Tigers.

    Shake n bake · 27/06/2020 at 19:40

    Go saints 😇

    NDD · 27/06/2020 at 20:15

    Long finally came good .Not a bad team really could easily play off

    mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:54

    I reckon their coach has been somewhat under rated. The game style and strategy is excellent
    At carlton he took the same team to finals that malthouse couldn't get above 15th

derek · 27/06/2020 at 19:58

this certainly is a strange year of SC.

this week my two trade ins were Naismith and SHill

lord give me strength

    Maverick_ · 27/06/2020 at 20:14

    SHill is flying isn't he Derek?
    Unlucky about Naismith I also have him but had had from the beginning.

    The Jinx · 27/06/2020 at 20:29

    Keeping a close eye on Hill Derek, might grab him for Naismith, I have Howe to deal with as well, I think I have someone in mind to replace him with only 15k ownership kinda a nice POD.

    In the bank currently have 94K, should look nice after those trades.

    mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:56

    You did well getting Hill, I was too scared that he'd be given an easy role without scoring potential. Just proves that unfounded fears should not be reacted to

      Derek · 27/06/2020 at 22:02

      I have Howe, Naismith and Fyfe to deal with next week

mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:07

Gee Whiz these umps must have money on the bombers! The only time they pay frees against them is for OOBOF

mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:11

Dusty for SHill via Brander I reckon ad Howe for Maynard

    Pman · 27/06/2020 at 20:38

    I'm with you re Maynard for Howe but I'm prepared to give Dusty one more week (depending on cash loss/BE) and will look to trade Noble or Mcasey for Hill so have swing set FWD/DEF with Brander. Hopefully Freo don't "manage" him next week like Melbourne have with Bennell.

      mick · 27/06/2020 at 20:44

      Do reckon management of hill will be a thing? I thought Bennell was dropped as much as he was rested he looked a long way off the pace for the little bit of time he played.
      Noble I have as well I thought that he might make a few more $, maybe not. You a pie fan and reckon that he's peaked is interesting. Hayden young putting his hand up now as well.
      Looks I might do a blindfolded dart board trade.

      That cunningham is making mcgrath look like he doesn't know what a football is

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/06/2020 at 20:44

    Jess · 27/06/2020 at 20:57

      Yes it's a long shot, but you have to agree those odds are good. With Fyfe out Rowell is the third favourite. I have also backed Neale at good odds. Please tell me who else is going to win?

        Jess · 27/06/2020 at 22:45

        Only an idiot would say that $95 odds down to $8 odds is a bad bet. Get real Mick

Absolutely disgusting umps pay a 70mtr penalty against eddie for being tripped over by a bombers player in a last ditched attempt to get the bombers over the line.
Free kick count 14-12 but of those 12 to carlton 5 were oobof only 2 bombers frees were oobof so actual count was 12-7.
The worst and most obvious umpire favoritism I have ever seen in a game of footy

    He'll never be in the same class as Grundy_

      Derek · 27/06/2020 at 22:15

      I wasn’t watching game, but saw Pitto on about 47 at 3/4 time. Did he have a good last quarter or was it a game saving mark or something that boosted his score?

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 22:17

    Pman · 27/06/2020 at 22:39

    I traded Nic Nat (74) for Pitto (94) and held Grundy so pretty happy all round. Idea is to ultimately get Pitto to Goldy/Gawn. Grundy is a 100% keeper.

      NDD · 27/06/2020 at 22:53

      So is Gawn and Goldy Cant have 3

          Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 23:15

          He did some good things Trig, he might be ok as a defender with a few more games, he still needs to clean up his disposal a bit and stop bombing it into nowhere land blindly, he had 7 tackles, that helped a lot..also gave away 3 frees.
          So yeah, a bit more composure under pressure and he could be a decent scorer.

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 23:24

Kangaz · 27/06/2020 at 22:51

Merritt will get a week easy. Intentional and probably medium impact

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 23:09

BTW what has happened to stocker?

Traded 1st round picks for him, obviously rated him and now fallen off the end of the earth?
Don't think he is injured?

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 23:32

    Hopefully he didn't go down Bootsma's dark path 😉

NDD · 27/06/2020 at 23:24

Rowell Daylight then who .Hard to pick the next best Rowell is that far superior. Serong maybe

    Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 23:33

    Clarry was pretty darn good to start with Neil, another wranger.

      NDD · 27/06/2020 at 23:45

      YEP He sure is Russty While you are there I am thinking of Steele for Howe He had a poor game last week but he has been right up there Mids completion is going to be tough .Last 3 spots is up for grabs now with Fyfe down and cripps poor Steele might just be the one

        Russty_ · 27/06/2020 at 23:57

        Yeah he's one of the best in there for sure, Seb Ross has fallen away a bit, Coaches plan for Steele this year was to not be a tagger anymore and let him roam, so it seems to be working out.

          holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 10:04

          Wish I knew that about Steele mate. Always rated him. I might have started him.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/06/2020 at 23:33

    Imagine that
    Rising star, brownlow first year!

    Young should win this week great poise coming out of backline.

      NDD · 27/06/2020 at 23:40

      Rivers is so much better Trigg

Westy · 28/06/2020 at 08:53

Went Whitfield and Pickett to B Smith and Butler. Happy with that.

holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 09:28

Not a great week for me. 1075/13/Captain still to play. Only have had 2 that has hit 3 figures this week and most have them in Rowell & Doch.
How is everyone else going? Hopefully better then me.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2020 at 09:34

    Someone will always get that perfect combination holt but most of us in same boat.
    Only got 3 more who tonned up so far in Howe, Bont and Grundy.

      holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 10:01

      Think there will be some big scores this week.

      Derek · 28/06/2020 at 10:04

      You gotta be happy with Bont

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2020 at 11:24

        Yep bont was a Hot diggity dog derek

    Derek · 28/06/2020 at 10:11

    Except for Coniglio, Macrea, Fyfe, Houston, rookies King, Budarick & Brander, injuries to Naismith, Fyfe & Howe, the rest have been ok

    Luckosus was a shining light in an otherwise bleak weekend.

    Let’s hope Neale justifies the C over Grundy

      Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 10:14

      Cogs as a pressure fwd was not good!

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2020 at 11:23

        Seemed like tom green actually pushed him into the fwd line

          holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 12:00

          Tom Green looked good. Maybe he can’t play forward so Cameron through Cogs down there. Hope it don’t happen again.

          The Jinx · 28/06/2020 at 15:30

          With Davis injured you reckon Cogs might spend more time up FWD. Williams also out, T Greens JS must be firm for a few a weeks or so.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 10:15

    Hi Holty, its a chook lottery again this week. So many losers dropping turds, a few going down with injury (Fyfe and Howe to name a couple) and a few mega big scores. For me its a mixed bag this week so far.

    The Bont and the Doc did me proud, and I dont own Fyfe and Howe. Thats the good news. Now for the bad, Budarick 47 SC,Brander 49SC, Coniglio 49SC, Heeney 64 SC, Dusty 81SC, and Cripps 81 SC. Turds everywhere.

    That said, grabbed Williamson and Petracca last night. Happy with Williamson's 76 SC and should make good coin now. Sitting on 1728 with 5 to play. (Sicily, Petracca, Mc Cluggage, Starcevich, and Doedee to play). Hoping to scramble to 2200 this week. Cheers. TH

      holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 12:02

      Not bad Hawk. Could push 2200 which isn’t bad mate. I’ll be happy to hit 2100. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    Westy · 28/06/2020 at 10:58

    1378/15 atm. Neale still to come as captain.

      holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 12:03

      2200 hopefully for you Westy.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2020 at 11:30

    Currently on 1174, had 5 ton up, playing you, Trigga and Hedski this round, still have captain Neale to come, but most people have him. I wanted to go Neale into Gawn, but most of my rookies are playing this round so couldn't loop. Happy to have my full team back after last weekend.

      holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 12:04

      Nice John. You should get me this week.

    NDD · 28/06/2020 at 12:25

    Fair week 8 left for1384 might get to 2300

      holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 13:05

      Nice Neil. Playing u in one of my leagues and you have seemed to avoid most of the carnage. Fingers crossed for you mate it stays that way today

        NDD · 28/06/2020 at 13:16

        Pleased I kept Long and Luksious I think Long will go but Luk has something about him Only going fallen or proven prems now . The carnage last week killed me ,dropped 15k but trade wisely and see where it takes me

    The Jinx · 28/06/2020 at 13:45

    I think many are in the same boat Holty
    I'm currently on 1313/14, Neale is my C this and not looking good being tagged. I have problem this week to deal with Naismith, Howe and Fyfe.

    Hoping to get some decent scores from
    Laird, Titch, Tracca, Sicily, Ceglar, Taylor, Starcevic and of I'm hoping Neale can shake the tag. I'll be picking myself of not taking Grundy' s 135😔

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 13:47

    Pretty average for me this week too Holty, I'll be lucky to win any leagues I think, I did manage to avoid the injury carnage though.

Gibbs · 28/06/2020 at 10:53

Narkle dropped has ruined my trade plans. Confident he will be late In however, would it be a bad move to turn him into parfitt? Was awesome against the hawks

G.C. · 28/06/2020 at 10:56

I'm looking to ahead to next week's trades, and I'm already going to have to burn one on Howe, plus another one to get another bubble rookie in. I still want more cash generation, so I'm considering going early today on one of the North rookies for my forward line.

What's the feeling on Xerri Vs Mahony?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2020 at 11:22

    In my humble opinion always fraught with danger going early on a fwd rook who relies on goals to score.

    Out of the rooks today rivers would be my pick

      NDD · 28/06/2020 at 12:15

      Spot on TRIGG Your judgement is something to behold.

Yeahnah · 28/06/2020 at 12:16

What to do with Luke Ryan?

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 13:55

    Yeah I'd be worried too, he's so inconsistent this year

Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 12:21

    NDD · 28/06/2020 at 12:29

    Who came in

Choppers · 28/06/2020 at 12:46

The Berg….

NDD · 28/06/2020 at 12:46

What's the bet. Bailey Williams gets a gig this week. Glad i kept him

NDD · 28/06/2020 at 13:44

Trying to work out who to trade for Howe. Daniels Hurn or Steele. Decided on none I remembered a coaching seminar I went to a few years back. Barrass was the guest speaker and he said (and this was before he had played much,) that SIMPKIN was the best kid he had seen at north. He said the same about Brent Crosswell years ago. At 500k he represents good value plays predominately mid and has GOLDY there. mid pricers come and go but i think Barrassi was on the money HOWE to Simpkin for me

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 13:59

    He'll be popular this week if he has another good one Neil, I'd be considering Howe straight to Ridley also, Ridley is the real deal this year, so far anyway.

      NDD · 28/06/2020 at 14:27

      Thought about him Russty but reckon he will let you down. As Holty says one in 15. midpricers make it /Perfectly true too. I. WOULD LOOK AT FALLEN CHAMPS Rowell is a rookie who will make it and my thoughts are like Barrassi's Simpkin Another former player who agreed with 31 at that seminar was Kelvin Templeton They saw something early that must have stuck out ,great disposal , a mongrel in them or leadership but something stuck at an early stage. Some have it and I bet Rowell showed a lot early what a talent a once in a decade player. good luck today bud

        Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 14:32

        Yeah Rowell's definitely something special, reckon Simpkin could be too, he has great composure, seems to be a common trait amongst these elite young blokes. I'm already lucky this week mate, no major injuries fingers crossed, many others not so lucky.

Jorg Ancrath · 28/06/2020 at 14:00

Someone at CD has Neale captain. 8 disposals at 42% DE for 49 points. Hmmmm, yea, that seems right…

    Jorg Ancrath · 28/06/2020 at 14:02

    Correction, he's 54 now, got a …. nothing, just extra points.

Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 14:05

Tag schmag says Lachie neale, go you little legend.

    Jorg Ancrath · 28/06/2020 at 14:19

    Getting gifted points tho. No way he should be on 66. 46, maybe.

      Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 14:29

      He's a nice person though, he deserves gifts 🙂

Connor · 28/06/2020 at 14:09

Missed the game last now, how did Philp from Carlton look?

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 14:15

    No good Connor. 32SC from memory. Will struggle to hold his spot IMO.

      Connor · 28/06/2020 at 15:30

      Damn, took a gamble and went early on him instead of Hamill. Turns out there was no right option

The Jinx · 28/06/2020 at 15:13

Surely McCluggage is decent replacement for Fyfe and Howe for Crisp he's been flying under radar. Might have to hold on Naismith one week, I'll swing Ceglar to Ruck and play with 3 Rookies onfield again😔up FWD.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 15:46

    McBags is looking good now Jinxy, last 2 weeks he's been epic, still affordable too.

      The Jinx · 28/06/2020 at 16:03

      I was gonna start with him, I thought I'd pick him up later on. Wanted to see how he goes for the 1st few rounds. he sure is still affordable and a decent cash in the bank after I swap Fyfe to him.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/06/2020 at 18:42

The Lost Boys · 28/06/2020 at 15:22

Captain decision time – stick with Neales 125 odd, or gamble on Gawn going big?

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 15:45

    Neale 147 with scaling, hope you took that…I'm content with that, and he was tagged.

      The Lost Boys · 28/06/2020 at 15:59

      Yep saw it was 134 at the final siren and took Neales score – scaling was nice. Gawn not looking great so far either on 9 at quarter time.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2020 at 18:48

    Not much difference in the end.

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/06/2020 at 15:28

Had Neale + 25 or more in a multi to win $650 and he kicked 6 behinds, unreal

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 15:44

    So that was 25 possies and 1 goal AB?….that's harsh man!

      AuroraBorealis?! · 28/06/2020 at 15:48

      Ah yes, that wasn't very clear was it haha. 25 and a goal

Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 16:05

Stewert out

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 16:06

    Yep, just when I thought I might escape the week with no injuries, broken Collarbone they're saying.

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 16:11

    The premo back men are dropping like flies! Now Stewart injured. Bloody carnage this.

      dontblushbaby · 28/06/2020 at 16:51

      I was planning on replacing Howe with Stewart, if he was going to get injured better this week than next, hope its not too bad recovers well

TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 16:05

Mc Cluggage= 🏆 141 SC after his 155 SC last week. The suitcase is full of points and cash. Good boy.

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 16:07

    Repaying the faith for you sticking with him TH…nice one

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 16:14

      I was close to punting him a few weeks ago, reallllll close. I kept him around because I had ruck dramas and he is young and upcoming player. Just felt he could bounce back like Dunkley did after dropping a couple of early turds last year. Relieved and happy. Still have a few sh-it stains to deal with mind you! Cheers Russty. TH

        worst game all year

Holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 17:51

Did Rivers even get a touch that 2nd half? He just went missing

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 17:51

    Bugger all mate and he went backwards…dud this week.

      NDD · 28/06/2020 at 18:05

Cunnington and Patton out of the next game.

Westy · 28/06/2020 at 17:53

And now Tommy Stewart injured (and Dangerfield doesn't look right either).

    dontblushbaby · 28/06/2020 at 18:03

    Danger was on 110 with 10 minutes to go ,then scores 140, he did not impact the game that much in that time including kicking ball out on the full ?

      Westy · 29/06/2020 at 10:35

      Yep, CD love him. (And I'm a Geelong supporter.)

NDD · 28/06/2020 at 18:01

TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 19:01

Sicily is going to cost me some serious leagues this week. Get moving you lazy spud!! FML

Pman · 28/06/2020 at 19:16

Bloody Sicily is killing me with 13 lousy points at half time! Is he injured or just massively stinking it up?

    TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 19:24

    Nothing wrong with the pri-ck. The bloke has decided that he does not feel like playing footy today. Hope Clarko gives him a spray for the ages at half time. Just do!!!

      Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 19:41

      Going better now, and still on 100% D/E

        TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 20:01

        What an epic quarter by Sicily. 58 SC points in the third. Clarko gave him a roast at half time. Dont worry about that. Hope he can go on and tonne up. Who would have thought 30 minutes ago.

          Pman · 28/06/2020 at 20:45

          Super recovery by Sicily to score 117 when he was 13 at half time!

            Derek · 28/06/2020 at 23:41

            He relays on the ball being down his end. Hawks were all over Kangas first half and his score reflected it

Holty01 · 28/06/2020 at 19:23

Can someone explain to me what hit outs to advantage mean in SC scoring? Ceglars on 33 late In 2nd quarter, gets 2 hit outs where O’Meara runs on to 1 and kicks it forward of the ground. Same happens later but stays on 33. Does his teammates actually need to gain possession with their hands to get the points for the hitout?

    Russty_ · 28/06/2020 at 19:40

    My understanding is, when he taps to someone and they get out with the clearance cleanly…not selling someone into a tackle or it bounces off someone else etc, there has to be a clear own team mate advantage, and it's 5 points

    Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 19:41

    It’s frustrating Holty! Grundy had better stats last week against the saints. 20 touches 5 frees for 6 marks and 34 hit outs 14 to advantage scored 107. Pinnott had 9 touches 4 marks 37 hit outs 12 advantage 2 frees for 137 didn’t have a touch in the last. Grundy had better stats last week against to rucks in Marshall and Ryder more influence so l try not to worry about it anymore

TOPHAWK1 · 28/06/2020 at 19:56

Thats better Sicily! You deserved that half time spray. Now finish the game off.

The Jinx · 28/06/2020 at 20:33

Love it!
Titch, Sicily, Ceglar and Taylor ended this round for me nicely. Should crack 2200 this week even with all the carnage been happening through the weekend.

    You’re a bloody legend! You can happily go and pull yourself off now! 😂

Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 20:45

CD is so full of 💩💩💩💩 Mitchell 3 touches 2 tackles in that last qtr 55pts!! Then you compare it to say Taylor had 4 touches and a mark got 6. Why is that both no frees against 2 of Mitchell’s posies were handballs

    Andy · 28/06/2020 at 20:49

    It’s rigged foreshore

      Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 21:06

      And Taylor had that goal assist to get them within a goal

        holty01 · 29/06/2020 at 12:42

        And that pack mark he took he didn’t get points for. Bonts another one who I question sometimes with the scoring. He did however deserve his score this weekend. He had a blinder.

    NDD · 28/06/2020 at 21:59

    grundy as well last week even though i reluctantly traded him

      Shake n bake · 28/06/2020 at 22:15

      Was going to bring in Gawn next week but with Howe and Fyfe out next week will be interesting Neil.

        NDD · 28/06/2020 at 23:16

    Connor · 29/06/2020 at 12:24

    Whilst I agree that this was one of those rounds where CD clearly showed their bias, Titch got about 35 points (including scaling) for getting the clearance in the last few seconds to prevent north from going forward for one last chance
    If there hadn’t been so many points still available at the end of the game, he wouldn’t have gotten near it

      Shake n bake · 29/06/2020 at 13:06

      Definitely agree to many pts allocated in a shortened game. I’m sorry everyone for my rant and said to myself l wouldn’t do it again but just ridiculous we have a pt system to how it’s scored yet l definitely know by watching and taking not of 2 players in particular in Taylor and Mitchell Taylor had a better qtr stats wise and influence one got 6pts one got 55.

AuroraBorealis?! · 28/06/2020 at 21:06

Ended up with 2130, which i feel is either par or about 25-50 points below. Suitcase the only real POD highlight for me this week. How did everyone else go? Any par hypotheses?

    Pman · 28/06/2020 at 21:30

    I scored 2174 which saw me win 5 leagues, lose two and draw one. The highest score in all my leagues was 2294 with about a third of teams cracking 2200. Reckon par is 2100 – 2150ish based on the leagues I'm in.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/06/2020 at 21:33

    2251 for me, won 9/10 league games, rank 4096 for this round, was going to put the C on either Neale or Gawn, as it turned out it didn't make a lot of difference either way. Wingard is probably my major POD and is going along nicely.

    The Ranger · 28/06/2020 at 21:34

    2303 for me AB. With five scores under 50 too.
    Weird week.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 28/06/2020 at 21:48

      Great score mate! That's higher than any i saw in my leagues. Where are you ranked after that?

        The Ranger · 28/06/2020 at 22:03

        Derek · 28/06/2020 at 23:37

        Titch and Chad did their best to bridge the gap NDD. You just too much of a start after Fyfe went down. I think it was 16pts in the end.

        You was my only loss this week.

        Managed 2264 and jumped to 590th rank.

      NDD · 28/06/2020 at 23:19

      onwards and upwards forget that round choppers keep going

    TBone_23 · 28/06/2020 at 22:44

    2170 this week for me Aurora, for once feel like it was a super Sunday instead of carnage. Reckon 1100-1150 would be par!

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 29/06/2020 at 10:36

    2125 for me, pretty similar to you Aurora. I'm happy with that really about average I guess.

    Westy · 29/06/2020 at 10:40

    2123 with Stewart and Howe injured and Gonigliog spudding up. That was still top 21,000 rankings!
    I'm a little concerned as my bench is looking pretty sparse atm with Roberton, Brander, Brown, Bennell, Robertson, Cameron, M King and Sturt.

Is there something wrong with sc this week? My VC loophole didnt work. Also my floating 0 as well, I didnt get my E score???


    NDD · 29/06/2020 at 17:34

    That's crazy but they should give those points back and league wins

    Dave2008 · 28/06/2020 at 22:26

    Sorry didnt mean to repost but anyone have this happen to them ?

      JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2020 at 00:28

      I didn't use any of my Emergencies, but some of the teams I played against did and they worked.

        Dave2008 · 29/06/2020 at 01:59

        It was weird as I set McIntyre as E with Bennel as a donut to look at his score in the Swans game. I set this before lockout Thursday. Then on the Gameday page its completely different. Same with Gawn as E no score from him. Cost me about 215 points and a league win.

          Holty01 · 29/06/2020 at 08:22

          Did you reverse changes just before lockout? I’ve done that before and forgot all positions reset to the previous week.

            Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 12:25

            That sounds about right Holty, only way a loophole doesn't work is if they don't understand it or they reversed trades and forgot to make the changes.

              Dave2008 · 29/06/2020 at 14:57

              Didnt reverse trades. I had McIntyre as E for Bennel to look at his score before lockout Thursday. Then Budarick was E on the Gameday page. Had Gawn as E but on Gameday the E was off him. Cost me about 170 points.

                Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 16:48

                That's weird Dave, maybe you could contact the Herald Sun about it?
                Do you mean McInerny? I looped him with Pickett no problem.
                Who was the ruckman on field with Gawn on the bench?
                Only other thing I can think of is if someone you know accessed your computer and shafted you.

                  Dave2008 · 29/06/2020 at 17:44

                  Yep. But my team page remains correct so I dont think so. It was Gameday that was wrong.north ruck Comden?

                  Dave2008 · 29/06/2020 at 17:46

                  Mcinerney that's right. A mate in our league said the same thing happened to him.

FearTheBeard · 29/06/2020 at 11:31

How bad is Fyfe injury? Time to jump on Bont or go for the Simpkin?

    Pman · 29/06/2020 at 13:23

    The Bont is a fizzer in SC, his scoring is too up and down and he's a player I've stamped as "never again". Simpkin is the real deal and offers far better value and has DPP status.

Shake n bake · 29/06/2020 at 11:34

Tigers to stay in Melb won’t play wc. Wc most likely play syd season is so chaotic

    Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 12:23

    Oh wow I just had a look on, they've changed up a few games , now it's Carlton Stkilda on thurs night.

    holty01 · 29/06/2020 at 12:41

    Bloody Vic’s. All those protests. You need a new premier. And I’m not talking AFL Premier either. The way things are going, all the borders will be open soon except Victoria’s

      NDD · 29/06/2020 at 15:00

      You are rtght Holty I live in rural vic and since the start we have had only one case but all the city folk flooded here in buses buying crap paper. Needs something quick

      JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2020 at 19:28

      I don't usually get into politics Holty, but the protests had nothing to do with it. Have a look at the shopping centers, people couldn't care less, they think they can't catch it, I wear my bandanna mask whenever I go out, most of the protesters wore masks, about the only ones not were the police, plus the protests were nation wide, not just in Victoria.The right wing mob wanted the shops and schools opened way too soon, that's where it's coming from.

The Ranger · 29/06/2020 at 13:12

So who are we trading Howe out to?
Assuming that a straight sideways is the way to go.
Tempted by Maynard.

    Choppers · 29/06/2020 at 13:21

    Unless things change by Thursday, I reckon I'll go Howe to The Bont via Brander and Simpkin.
    If I was going to another def then I'd go to Lloyd Ridley or Maynard.

    Pman · 29/06/2020 at 13:24

    Maynard or Ridley for me at this stage. I traded in Haynes this round just gone and reckon he is a pretty good option too.

      Rooboy12 · 29/06/2020 at 15:13

      Anyone worried the return of Connor McKenna (cleared for this week) or Ambrose (not sure when?) might affect Ridley?

        Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 16:50

        Now that you mention it…maybe better to go for someone more proven but he does look like a good young player, good size and height too.

    holty01 · 29/06/2020 at 13:39

    Maynard might be a risk mate as you can’t be sure of the role he will play now with Howe out.

      Choppers · 29/06/2020 at 13:49

      Good call. Need to consider that.

    Mitch is Back · 29/06/2020 at 15:11

    This might be a little left field.

    Levi Casboult, has always been able to take a grab, he has now learnt how to kick straight, and has even been tackling. The blues are seeing more opportunities in their forward-line.


      Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 16:49

      Real left field Mitch but not a bad one based on how he's going, he does look very competent this season, great pod he would be.

    JohnDJ59 · 29/06/2020 at 20:29


    MADMAX · 30/06/2020 at 20:15

    Just traded in Lloyd, he might be a bit expensive but he will always average 105.
    Good point Holty1 about Maynard!

NDD · 29/06/2020 at 17:32

Harley Bennell was on fire kicked 4 goals and setting others up in the cats /dees practice game Too slick for his cat oponents and should play next game .On that performance would have to go onfield. NDD

    Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 18:03

    Good news Neil, was hoping he'd get back in there soon, he's worked too hard not to, after last week the less rookies on field the better!

      NDD · 29/06/2020 at 18:12

      Is he a rookie though Russty? Like Hill rookie priced maybe but geez mate he looked electric bringing others like mitch brown into the game/. Could be a choice between him and Pickett and they play each other now ,

        Russty_ · 29/06/2020 at 18:18

        I don't mean Harley Neil, I mean the other spuds who stunk up my score last week LOL

Trent · 29/06/2020 at 19:32

So is anybody else thinking of trading Coniglio?

    Mitch is back · 29/06/2020 at 22:44
