Ugh. What a week. Having a team full of premiums by the end of the year is looking all the more harder as another batch of premoโ€™s succumbed to injury, suspension, and social distancing avoidance leading to being found by cops naked and drunk on a Sunday morning. Robbo flew into a rage on AFL360, asking Eddie in disbelief how many times have you been drunk on the couch asleep, woke up, and went out the wrong door? This may have been a genuine question as I assume this happens to Robbo quite a bit.

But SuperCoach soldiers on, and while my approach to overcoming these problems is just to trade with reckless abandon (Levi Casboult is now my D3, which went very badly), Lek and Damo talked all things fixing up your side on the podcast this week, so maybe (definitely) you should go listen to that first before doing the trading in Casboult thing.

Newz You Can Uze

The Pies have contributed to our backline disaster for the week by dropping John Noble for tonights game against the Dons. Howe (knee) and Sidebum (drunk, naked) join him on the outs list, but weโ€™ll be getting our first looks at Adam Treloar and Matt Scharenberg in 2020. At the Bombers, Tom Bellchambers has been saved the embarrassment of being towelled up by Brodie Grundy by being โ€œmanagedโ€, Mitch Hibberd (MID – 114.4k) will make his debut.

It was flagged last week in the Panic Room that Tom Hickey is never the answer, heโ€™s been omitted this week along with Lewis Jetta. Jarrod Brander is out with a hip injury that no-one knows anything about. Nic Nat will face off against 7-gamer Hayden McLean after the Swans lost Sinclair and Naismith to knee injuries. Gold Coast have again named an unchanged lineup against the Cats, who regain Harry Taylor. Louis Butler has been dropped after making his debut last week at the Dogs. Aaron Naughton will also miss with injury, but Easton Wood will make his return. North are welcoming back Ben Cunnington after heโ€™s missed the previous fortnight. Port are unchanged for their game against Brisbane on Saturday night. Tom Berry gets another go at the Lions, heโ€™s played two already but is still cheap at 137.8k. Dayne Zorko is out with injury. 

On Sunday, Adelaide havenโ€™t named any outs as yet, but thereโ€™s a possible debut for Andrew McPherson (DEF – 123.9k). Fremantle have named 5 ins, Sam Sturt making a quick recovery. Only Nat Fyfe is a confirmed out so far. Melbourne have also not named any outs as yet, nothing too exciting among their possible ins. Big changes at Richmond with three confirmed outs, Sydney Stack and Jack Ross have been dropped, Marlion Pickett headlines the list of possible ins that includes Noah Balta, Dan Rioli, and possible first gamer Jake Aarts (FWD – 123.9k). In the final game of the week, GWS have named Sam Jacobs and Jye Caldwell among 6 possible inclusions, however, Zac Williams (hamstring) will miss. Hawthorn have named Harrison Jones (MID 123.9k) for a possible debut, Luke Breust (jaw) will miss. ย  ย 

Breakevens

These players come with a free frogurt! (Thatโ€™s good)

These players come with Potassium Benzoate! (Thatโ€™s bad)

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

Mitch Duncan has been the model of consistency so far in 2020. scoring between 114-123 in his first 4 games. While thatโ€™s not exactly blowing the roof off, he does come with the added advantage of only being in 1,045 teams, making him a very reliable differential. He knows his game, Mitch, having average over 100 for the past three years, At a tick under 600k youโ€™ll be buying him at his peak, but with little chance of a tag heading to him his high floor and consistent scoring make him a safe pick. ย

Great write up as per usual!

How essential do we feel HIll, Serong and Mahony are? I reckon HIll is underpriced for potential output but can we pass on the other 2? There aren't really any rookies who stand out in terms of trading out. I'm moving noble on this week, but all the other rookies have cash to make. Could trade brander to one of the other 2 via rivers DPP, but Brander has been pretty solid when hes played. That would leave your Browns, Taylors who have a bit more money to make yet. Should we be passing on these rookies or trying to get them in?

    Lekdog · 03/07/2020 at 12:44

    I actually like Serong more than Hill myself!

    I think we need to go earlier on rookies than we normally do.

    Having said that, I have a 0 no matter what so probably ignore me

      TommyC99 · 03/07/2020 at 14:49

      Is Brander – Serong viable?

    Rivo · 03/07/2020 at 13:12

    Hill has DPP hence a popular pick this week with Brander out. Mahony a borderline pick for mine unless injuries to others keep him in. Serong May come in for a week or 2 while Fyfe is out.
    I would consider Hill for a rookie that hasn’t played yet and sits on your bench.

Rivo · 03/07/2020 at 13:08

Another gem of an article Kev. Love the joke about Robbo and the drunk/couch/door ๐Ÿคฃ

Branders injury may force me to hold Fyfe for a couple of weeks to avoid a donut. So here goes….

Option 1 (original plan) Howe & Fyfe to Lloyd & Mitchell. This means I cop a donut from Brander and hope Rivers gets a game (or 2 donuts) ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ

Option 2 – Howe & Robertson (mid) to Ridley and S.Hill via DPP swings. Fyfe to the mid bench, Budarick swing to M8, Brander to D7/8. Vandermeer to F6. If Rivers plays at D6, all donuts avoided.

Interested in the Groups thoughts on these as the clock ticks to final teams for Sunday….

    Mitch is Back · 03/07/2020 at 13:52

    Rivo,

    I'd go option 2. Option 2 consumes a donut for you, also Mitchell will be heavily tagged this week by De Bour. I'd get Mitchell in next week (cheaper), whilst enjoying the value gain from Hill.

    Obviously you cant afford to do Howe & Robertson to Lloyd & Hill, but with the number of trades we get this season in reduce rounds, it may be worth going Howe & Fyfe to Lloyd & Hill, picking Mitchell up next week, and looking to upgrade someone to Fyfe in 4-5 weeks.

      Rivo · 03/07/2020 at 14:11

      Thanks, now my brain hurts. I could also go Lloyd & Hill by trading out Pickett & Howe, but prefer to keep Pickett if he’s selected as he can be bench cover with Bennell not playing again. Doesn’t leave much cash but Fyfe and Viney become trade options next week.

Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 13:43

Fantastic work as always Kev

Dash · 03/07/2020 at 14:07

26K I'm looking at S Hill. I've got Brander as a donut at the moment. Just looking at two smart trade options this round?
Laird, Sicily, Docherty, Rivers, Brander, Starcevic (Noble, BZK)
Danger, Macrae, Cripps, Coniglio, Rowell, Budarick, McInerney, T Brown (Bennell, Fyfe, Pickett)
Gawn, Grundy (Combden)
Whitfield, Dusty, D Smith, Bewley, C Taylor, B King (Sturt, Georgiades)

    Dash · 03/07/2020 at 17:06

    Who would you trade out of Brander, Noble or BZK this week?
    And who would you trade in?
    I can field a team in the midfield, just. Would you hold or Trade Fyfe?

JohnDJ59 · 03/07/2020 at 14:12

Not looking good for my defence, Howe injured, traded him to Williamson last night, mainly for the cash generation and JS. Brander injured, Noble dropped, Rivers might be dropped and have Gould on the bench as my non playing loop. Will probably bring in either Young if picked or Haynes. Hoping that Noble is a late in and Rivers keeps his spot, otherwise I'm looking at either one or two donuts. I should have cover for Fyfe.

Jonathan · 03/07/2020 at 14:16

Hello Community! After a failed VC experiment with the great man Pittonet last night. Unsure who to Captian between Neale and Gawn. Leaning towards Gawn. Thoughts? ๐Ÿคท‍โ™‚๏ธ

    TommyC99 · 03/07/2020 at 14:54

    I think Neale is the safe pick but Port havent been conceding high scores to midfielders (read earlier in the week only concede an average of 79pts). I think Neale passes that but i'll be picking Gawn if by some miracle Grundy doesnt completely embarass Philips tonight

      Jonathan · 03/07/2020 at 16:58

      Interesting stat. Neale it is!

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 19:17

    Neale for sure

Maverick_ · 03/07/2020 at 14:27

I panicked last night!!
Moments before the game kicked off I had Naismith and wanted to grab Pitt was the plan all week I fudged my math and was 15k short so I had to panic trade Fyfe to make the cash … Early in the week I had a shortlist of gaff, Duncan and Macrae… The first siren sounded I sh*t myself and picked Titch with a 140, under 600k and SC pedigree like no other it screamed bargain.. he has the de Boer tag this weekend. like going Whitfield to Fyfe last week right at the bounce this could bite me in the bum .

    Connor · 03/07/2020 at 15:57

    Every year I do at least one panic trade, every year I regret it! I just accept it at this point

Noobmaster69 · 03/07/2020 at 14:45

Trade noble or brander?

    TommyC99 · 03/07/2020 at 15:15

    I think a lot of that question comes down to the extent of Brander's injury. I think being dropped is a bad sign for noble but at the same time he could come back in at any time. Brander certainly hasnt been the eagles worst player and if its only a 1-2 week injury i think theres every chance he comes straight back in. Theres a chance i trade both this week but i think im prioritizing noble out first.

    Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 16:35

    I’d drop Noble. He has been omitted as it seems his not in Buckley’s best 22. Brander dropped for injury. Would imagine he is in Simpson’s best 22 when over injury.

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 16:38

    Same conundrum mate – leaning Noble but seriously who knows lol

TommyC99 · 03/07/2020 at 15:24

Should i be trading Cogs out? BE 165 and didnt like how much fwd he played last week. Ive still got 24 trades left so pretty much 2 per week. Ive already got Neale, Cripps, Oliver and Macrae. If i pulled the trigger it would be at the expensive of Brander – Serong.

Right now liking Danger. Reckon he could be back. Also find it very hard to watch him and not own him. What other options, obvious or POD should i be considering?

    Maverick_ · 03/07/2020 at 15:40

    Do it Tommy. Shortened season can't afford passengers like cogs.

    I like Duncan alot and the reliable gaff Bont won't be cheaper all season either.
    I traded in Mitchell but not confident one bit on him

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 19:18

    I reckon Cogs will bounce back personally

NDD · 03/07/2020 at 15:37

Howe and Noble out for Ridley and Caleb with no confidence. funny year

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 20:51

    good trades there mate, I reckon Ridley is pretty good.

    mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:37

    solid trades NDD if they backfire it will only be for 1 week

NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 16:37

CARNAGE! Brander, Noble. Noble, Brander. Have to keep Fyfe as I've gone Howe to Simpkin.

I'm leaning towards Noble for Hill purely because he's been dropped – thoughts?

FearTheBeard · 03/07/2020 at 16:49

Ridley & Hill and bank 200k+

OR

Ridley, & B Smith/D Moore/Mills? WHO. HELP ME PLEASE LOL.

    Rivo · 03/07/2020 at 16:57

    Option 1 or even go up to Lloyd/Haynes & Hill

      FearTheBeard · 03/07/2020 at 18:11

      Appreciate you Rivo.

    Mitch is back · 03/07/2020 at 17:02

    Ridley & Hill.

    Moore is good but not always SC relevant, Mills has been inconsistent. Smith would be my second choice behind Hill, but the extra cash will help next week, and the dual position with decent upside gets Hill over the line.

      derek · 03/07/2020 at 17:21

      if Mills plays his usual half-back role he will score 80-85 with the occasional better score. Without McVeigh, Jones and Smith, he is now the link man to Lloyd. However, if he gets more midfield time like last week, even if it a tagging role, he will start to push 95-100.

      I prefer Brodie Smith ahead of Mills. Smith is a fallen premium who has lost some value and admirers after his first two weeks. He still good.

      Moore is a wait and see if he gets Howe's role. He could be gold if he does.

      Maybe Hill and watch the other 3 closely

        FearTheBeard · 03/07/2020 at 18:11

        Thank you Derek.

      FearTheBeard · 03/07/2020 at 18:11

Sturt back and Rivers keeps his spot

    cash_cows · 03/07/2020 at 17:36

    well sturt being back is frustrating, was supposed to be out for ages.

      Shake n bake · 03/07/2020 at 17:44

      Because I’m taking kings score have to toss up who to now start either Sturt or Taylor.

        Pman · 03/07/2020 at 18:21

        Likewise…reckon I'll roll the dice on Sturt as Adelaide are complete rubbish and Freo should belt them so hopefully Sturt scores well in the forward line. Curtis Taylor is very luck to have kept his spot.

TBone_23 · 03/07/2020 at 17:22

Sweet, Rivers named! Sturt back too so can’t loop him to get Kings score anymore. Sturt against Adelaide seems like a good fielding option to me. Otherwise C Taylor which is probably safer but anyone against Adelaide should effectively have a bye. Anyone looking at a defensive donut this week?

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 17:41

    I am unfortunately. Can't cover Howe, Noble and Brander

      TBone_23 · 03/07/2020 at 17:53

      Bloody sorry to hear that Language! What trade plans you going for this week then?

        NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 19:16

        Going Howe to Simpkin via Brander and Noble to Hill mate. Gonna hold Brander and Fyfe for now, can't trade em all!

          TBone_23 · 03/07/2020 at 23:28

          Love the Howe to Simpkin trade mate, Simpkin looking great this year. Hope Hills body holds out for you, no doubt about his talent but it’s his body I worry about. If he stays on the park then he’s a great trade in!

    JohnDJ59 · 03/07/2020 at 23:59

    All covered now, went Howe to Williamson last night, moved Brander fwd and brought in Haynes, Fyfe missing is going to hurt though, with either T.Brown or McHenry covering for him, that's minus 100 points right there.

The Ranger · 03/07/2020 at 17:46

Everyone likes a nice "shuffle trade".
I'm trading Howe – Ridley. Sraightforward.
Then out goes Robertson, Mahony moves to the Mids from the Fwds, Brander moves to the Fwds from Def, Hill comes into Def (creating a swing with Brander) and Sturt gets subbed onto the bench so that Brander is onfield and I can take Kings 86.
Nice.

The Lost Boys · 03/07/2020 at 17:57

I have T.Brown, C.Budarick and M.Hibberd as midfield rookies and need to play two of them on the field. No idea which two will score best!

I have Bennell and Pickett to loophole one of Brown and Hibberd which helps, but again not sure which to put on the field and which to have on the bench with the E to loophole.

Any suggestions?

Connor · 03/07/2020 at 18:03

Take Philp (59) or field T. Brown?

LHMORWOOD · 03/07/2020 at 18:05

Deciding whether to trade Fyfe? possible talk of him returning against West Coast which is two games away but not sure if its worth holding considering the shorter season where I could get another premium score for those two weeks. Currently sitting 983 overall and don't want to drop.

Mitchell, Oliver, Gaff or Macrae are possible options. Which one is the best option?

    Maverick_ · 03/07/2020 at 18:15

    if your playing for OA you have got to trade 100% . Macrae for mine his a SC jet. Dunkley out means he's back in and under.. surprisingly he copped the tag last game and look at what Bont did to GWS. It goes to the Bont in future no questions asked.

    redherringfc · 03/07/2020 at 18:49

    Mitchell. If he can crack 104 against gws he won’t be this cheap again and will be one of the best over the rest of the season (fingers crossed)

ST1974 · 03/07/2020 at 18:06

Fantastic write up Kev. Always makes me laugh which is always welcome on a Friday. 26 trades left and $140k in the bank.

Option 1 – Fyfe to Titch/Oliver/Parker and Noble to Haynes, Ridley or Hill
Option 2 – Noble to Hill and Fyfe to the benc
Option 3 – Brander to Hill and Noble to Ridley or Haynes and put Fyfe to bench and field McInerney

    Rivo · 04/07/2020 at 12:47

    Just saw this one. Option 3 would have worked nicely. I ended up holding Fyfe also as my defence was a mess.

Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 18:25

Best trade in option for cogs??

Boak
Gaff
Bont
Duncan
Danger

Would appreciate any input on preference ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maverick_ · 03/07/2020 at 18:31

    Of those I like gaff.
    Will give you 105-115 every week.
    Just won't get the 140s of danger and Bont or the 70s

      Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 18:34

      Thanks Maverick, yeah for sure. With his price point at max do you think someone like bont would be a better choice in the short term due to his lower price at current and them aim to get gaff later after a down game? – just thinking cash saving purposes because thats how I see this season.

    redherringfc · 03/07/2020 at 18:41

    Pretty sure all are good options, but Bont at 575k is my pick. I don’t think he’ll be this low again.

      Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 18:58

      cheers mate, do we think bont will pick up scoring wise? people were talking of trading him out before his one big score last week?

        Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 19:44

        CD do their best to gift him pointsevery week. But no, not a top 8 mid, for mine.

        redherringfc · 03/07/2020 at 20:03

        I'm not entirely convinced on him, but he is a quality player. I'm either picking him up or Mitchell. Both at their lowest price, in my predictions.

    Shake n bake · 03/07/2020 at 18:44

    Pendals

      TommyC99 · 03/07/2020 at 19:02

      Not worried about him potentially moving to half back when sidebum is back?

        Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 19:08

        I am thats for sure.

    Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 19:01

    Cogs will score 150 this week. Heard it here first.

      Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 19:03

      haha its that sort of year, nothing would surprise me.

      Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 19:45

      Might captain him if Grundy bombs.

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 19:12

    You have the luxury of trading Cogs with all the carnage this week? Lucky you! I'm backing him to go huge

      Kevin · 03/07/2020 at 19:16

      no Howe i think saved me, so just Noble to S.hill and covering brander who i have in my Fwd's. even when he's played well he only score 110 and by all reports is going to play 60:40 mid/fwd which is worrying with all the taller GWS fwds around.

Antonio · 03/07/2020 at 18:40

Is anybody considering Jake Kolo?

redherringfc · 03/07/2020 at 18:44

3 spots in defence to fill. Currently looking at Sicily, Daniel and Crisp.

I’m leaning towards Daniel, just over Crisp.

What are people’s thoughts on who to pick up this week?

    Connor · 03/07/2020 at 18:47

    Sicily

      redherringfc · 03/07/2020 at 19:15

      I can’t split the 3. my guess is that the order of expense (Daniel, Sicily, Crisp) is pretty reflective of their real value.

      I’m going with Sicily. I think.

    NoLanguage96 · 03/07/2020 at 19:14

    Started with Daniel, can't go wrong with him IMO

NDD · 03/07/2020 at 19:05

Brander's hip is only a pointer. bruise He did it during a scratch match after starring playing forward kicking 3 goals

Shake n bake · 03/07/2020 at 19:05

No late changes

Dash · 03/07/2020 at 19:17

Who goes first out of Noble, Brander and BZK to help a zero in defence?

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/07/2020 at 19:29

    BZT. That bloke appears completely on the outer at the moment. Brander and Noble could both come back after being rested.

Pman · 03/07/2020 at 19:28

Noble has been dropped and if Varcoe and Scharenberg both play well tonight then I don't see Noble coming back in anytime soon. I'm a Pies supporter and I'm tossing up trading either Noble or Mcasey for Hill this week.

    dontblushbaby · 03/07/2020 at 20:23

    J.Noble made way for S.Hill , liked H.Young but $ & Def / Fwd was the kicker

JugHead · 03/07/2020 at 20:14

Lesson for others…….. I started trading in Maynard with less than 5 mins to the bounce…..then the computer / website froze.
#%&€โ‚ฉ¥#@%^&/!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Final result ……. Maynard is on the bench and wasnt even able to get the emergency on him.
Meanwhile, I have a non-selected player on field and will be taking a donut.

    Pman · 03/07/2020 at 20:19

    Ouch! Feel your pain mate..

    TOPHAWK1 · 03/07/2020 at 20:53

    Not a good outcome JugHead. I guess the lesson to be learnt here is to leave yourself a bit more time to trade before the bounce to allow for farked up internet connectivity. Still, you own Maynard. I don't. Cheers. TH

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 20:54

    Bad break Jugs, bloody internet providers!!!, at least he's only on 74 at half time ๐Ÿ˜‰

      JugHead · 03/07/2020 at 21:29

      Lol…….yep……that just adds salt to the wounds.

        JugHead · 03/07/2020 at 21:42

        100+ at 3qt…….if he now goes forward and starts kicking goals you will see me on the morning news throwing beer bottles at the cops from the roof.

          Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 21:46

          Haha I thought you were gonna say a sniper rifle from the belltower near your internet provider CEO's house lol, seriously mate, my commiserations for the points loss, that sucks.

    mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:27

    Bloody hell mate don't try picking up this weekend because shes sure to be a tranny

      mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:14

      A genuine risk for sydneysiders

Derek · 03/07/2020 at 21:02

Ridley was good in the second quarter. Well done to those who brought him in.

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 21:26

    Wish I could've afforded him and Maynard this week..Ridley looks like the real deal.

      mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:36

      Yep the blokes that take the kick ins are racking up dozens of easy points

Pman · 03/07/2020 at 21:08

Happy with trading in Ridley so far with 71 points at half time and putting the V on Grundy may pay off. Just wish the Pies would revert to how they were playing in the first 10 mins as we've been shite house since!

    mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:26

    I grabbed maynard for Howe, thanks mate. Had to get ridley for Fyfe as well and will still get a donut down back

      Pman · 03/07/2020 at 22:10

      I'll be upgrading Noble to Maynard next week with the cash I made this week, held off this week as wanted to see if his role/points would be impacted with Howe out. Absolute lock for next week.

        mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:15

        Looking like the best defender who doesn't get freebies for a dozen kick ins

    Pies better get a wriggle on if they're gonna win this thing.

mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:21

I hope bombers win by 4 points just so that I can see eddie explode.

Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 21:24

I think poor old Mason needs to go back to his former job as the guy wearing a Giraffe suit at kids parties.

    Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 21:45

    Well played sir.

    Pman · 03/07/2020 at 22:07

    He's been a passenger last two games and seemed a bizarre selection in wet slippery conditions. Time is running out for the big Texan…

    Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 22:22

    Think Cameron is a much better option. And will offer a good chop out in the ruck for Grundy

Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 21:33

Ridley still gonna be cheap as chips next week. Looks a goodun.

Jorg Ancrath · 03/07/2020 at 21:33

I've seen enough of Treloar. Comes straight in next week. I can't quit him.

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 21:52

    Should go rampant in the next 3 weeks mate with Sidey out.

    Derek · 03/07/2020 at 22:13

    He got better as night went on

mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:38

When you get D Smith instead of J Martin just to save a few $k ๐Ÿ™

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 21:51

    Yeah Smith's gone all mediocre lately, probably need to trade out soon..Martin only 56 last week, what happened there?…he seems a bit of a yoyo

      mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:21

      Everybody is allowed 1 bad game a year Russty

      mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:22

      He was klu klux klanned by CD against the demons mate

        Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:26

        Lol, he's definitely a talent, good to watch in full flight.

mick · 03/07/2020 at 21:44

Bombers look heaps better without f!og merrett stealing easy pozzys and spudding it up

Connor · 03/07/2020 at 21:55

Smith has barely scored since QT

mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:03

Philips has given grundy a footy lesson tonight but brodie still gets the SC points. Craig Kelly started CD didn't he?

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:04

    Grundy's smashed the points in the last 5 mins, certain keeper score this week.

      Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 22:18

      I watched his score all night on fanfooty. CD love him. As we all know with the shorter quarters, they have to give out the extra points to make up the 3300. Grundy got 52 of them believe it or not.

        Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:21

        Hey Holty, he had a tackle and free kick for to start about 7 or 8 possies in the last few minutes, was on 130 or so for awhile before that, I reckon he deserved it, tons of hitouts too.

          Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 22:34

          Dominated the hit outs mate but they got well beaten in the clearances. Most of his hit outs went to Essendon players. But you don’t lose points for that so you would think some of those 37 hit outs were to advantage.

      Holty01 · 03/07/2020 at 22:20

      He even got a extra 10 at the end of the 3rd when he had no influence in the 3rd.

        Shake n bake · 03/07/2020 at 22:37

        Wow 21 touches 41 hitouts to 13 6 frees for 5 of them against the ess ruckman! With Phillips 11 touches and 5 frees against how did he get 111!

          Shake n bake · 03/07/2020 at 22:38

          By the way ess deserved to win.

            Derek · 04/07/2020 at 00:40

            Ruckmen are scoring insane this year. Doesn’t matter if they are any good. Look at even Sinclair a couple of weeks ago, and Jacobs was so badly beaten one night he got dropped, but still managed a 94. I would have an entire team of rucks this year if allowed

          Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 00:56

          Shake was not for 1 second saying he had a bad game. Although his influence in the game was not to his lofty standards with those hit outs going mostly to the opposition. After all he is the best ruck in the comp. all I was saying is CD have their favourites and it seemed that a lot of those leftover points went to Grundy. Plus philips should not have tonnes up. As Derek said, ruckmen this year seem to be getting a lot of these extra points.

            Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 10:11

            2000% agree Holty. His influence in the ruck hitouts were let down by getting beaten in the midfield. But getting those stats and you see what other ruckman are getting eg nank last week who lost the hitouts and had less stats get 180! And last night Phillips 111 for 11 touches 11 hitouts 5 to adv & 5 frees against is ridiculous. CD has flavour of the year players!! Unfortunately you just have to jump on board. Ridley had 2 touches in the 1st qtr got 26ps only 1 touch in the last got 26pts that’s 52 pts for 3 stats. He did have a brilliant 2qtr but you watch these players because you have them or come up against them. Mitchell last week got 52 pts in the last for 1 clearance 3 touches 2 were handballs. Taylor 4 touches 3 kicks 2 marks goal assist got 6pts. I really really hate how CD are scoring it doesn’t make sense. Not sure if they think we don’t watch but l cant believe how bad it gets.

              Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:46

              The point bump they give at the end of each quarter to ‘catch up’ on the short quarters is crazy.

              Ridley finish the second quarter on about 50, then jumped to 65.

                Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:47

                PS. There was no way Max deserved his score last week

      Pman · 03/07/2020 at 22:35

      Had the VC on him last week and didn't take his 135 and rolled the dice with Neale and that paid off but I can't pass on his 151 tonight but there is still every chance that Neale will pass 150!

        Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:47

        Neale's prediction is 172 this week!…don't think I've ever seen a prediction that high, if he gets that he deserves to be crowned king of the world LOL

          Pman · 03/07/2020 at 22:59

          It's surreal to think that I cant be super confident that Grundy's 151 will be enough! That's how good Neale is going but who passes on 151?? I feel obliged but not confident in taking Grundy's score…

AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 22:08

What a f*cking disgrace of a performance. Even with the umpires almost handing us the game we still can't get over the line. Ropeable.

    Derek · 03/07/2020 at 22:15

    What was Stephenson throwing the ball in the air before he kicked his second goal.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 22:44

      Mate he could do a front-flip in his run up, as long as he keeps kicking goals i'm happy

    Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:25

    They looked very indecisive at times AB, need to play with more confidence and speed, too much stuffing around with the pill.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 22:43

      Agreed. Also just not hard enough at the ball tonight. Out-hunted and out-skilled.

    Ralph · 03/07/2020 at 22:43

    Cox needs to go. He was beyond useless tonight. Absolutely putrid performance. The problem is the only viable option is Darcy Cameron who is also fairly poor. We need to draft some talls as well as throw not just the kitchen sink but the whole goddamn house at the King twins when they’re out of contract.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 22:48

      Agreed Ralph. I have vouched for Cox previously for his upside (being 7ft) but its becoming more and more apparent that he will never be good enough for the AFL.

        Ralph · 03/07/2020 at 23:08

        He’s a great set shot inside 35m the problem is he’s had one good game (Tigers prelim) where he marked everything around the ground. The man has dropped three easy marks on the lead in the past two games and couldn’t even impact a contest around the ground this week. Disappointing he hasn’t improved more because like you said, his upside is unbelievable. (Also I understand that I’m criticising a professional athlete and I could probably not do the things he’s done but I guess that’s our job as consumers of the game).

          AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 23:52

          He played with a semi detached retina in one eye through all of 2019, and then fully detached the other one against gold coast in the same year. I will still give him the benefit of the doubt that he can improve (with full vision) but after this season i will be casting a harsh eye over his prospects.

      Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:52

      Max ain't going anywhere Ralph, he's our new Nick Riewoldt, you can have his brother ,the other one.
      Imagine if they were both in the same fwd line though, I mean in a year or 2, it'd be exciting to see.

        Ralph · 03/07/2020 at 23:11

        I’ll cop Ben Russty, he’s every bit as good. Both in the same forward line would be unstoppable, the height and speed along with their bodies filling out over the next few years, would be absolutely terrifying. Can’t wait to watch them develop over the years.

        Choppers · 04/07/2020 at 00:18

        And neither is the "other one". His name is Ben by the way.

      Choppers · 04/07/2020 at 00:16

      Good luck with that!

    mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:59

    They need to Farm strong, gym strong just doesn't cut it todays game

      AuroraBorealis?! · 03/07/2020 at 23:06

      Needa give appleby a call up then Mick?

mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:13

Don't get too excited bombers fans, Carlton beat you last week after giving you a headstart in first quarter and letting you get 2 goals up in the final quarter. Pies had a very bad night, and your committee wont let you play without f!og merret every week

TBone_23 · 03/07/2020 at 22:17

Brought Ridley in for Noble 2 minutes before the game, very happy with the pick! I think he might be the real deal. Would have traded down but don’t trust any higher price rookie options. Hopefully we’ve got a good new batch coming soon as I reckon these ones are almost ripe for the picking

    Derek · 03/07/2020 at 22:35

    First time I’ve seen Ridley play. Looks a good player all right. Lot of talk this week, didn’t think he was worth all the fuss, but now I see he is.

    Have to get Whitfield next week, might have miss on Him

      Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:48

      Will still be a bargain next week Derek, cool headed player and a good size to boot.

        Derek · 03/07/2020 at 22:57

        I’ll be doing my maths all weekend to see who I can trade out to get both. About $450k each.

        Devon and Houston plus my bit of cash to Ridley and Whitfield could be done

    JohnDJ59 · 04/07/2020 at 00:18

    Well done TBone, I was tossing up between Haynes, Ridley and Young, went Haynes, thought I had missed the boat with Ridley, but it looks like he is worth it.

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 00:35

    Collingwood and GWS are the two teams that give up big points to defenders, especially one that can take a mark.

    I passed on Ridley and jumped on Sicily this week. Long wait until Sunday night to see if I got it wrong

mick · 03/07/2020 at 22:17

Sharonturd can get stuffed his fault I get a donut and he got his but smacked by terrible townsend. Nobility in the defence is what the pies need (in addition to howe and maynard)

TelescopicCox · 03/07/2020 at 22:26

Picked Crisp over Ridley and Maynard…hoping he comes good in the long run. He was a bit fumbly tonight and couldn’t provide the run and carry he usually does

Also anyone looking at Treloar? Looked good for a first hit out

NDD · 03/07/2020 at 22:31

Sharon is a talent. probably needs a new club and wouldn't Ratten do something with him

    gator59 · 03/07/2020 at 22:40

    I was hoping we would've drafted him but i think he was coming of a shoulder injury at the time

    gator59 · 03/07/2020 at 22:42

    Would probably be better off at a bottom 2 side in the dees

      Russty_ · 03/07/2020 at 22:52

      Hehe

      NDD · 03/07/2020 at 23:25

      exactly gator the saints are that bottom 2 side smart rse

        gator59 · 03/07/2020 at 23:32

        LOL

mick · 03/07/2020 at 23:08

37 hitouts, 34 to opposition and absolutely no way he had 7kicks, 13 hballs, and 6 tackles unless fresh air shots count as kicks and hballs and, touching a bloke as he runs away from you to set up a goal counts as a tackle. But I suppose thats why all us Super coaches start him. when CD can't determine exactly who shot the ball out of the pack or layed the tackle that resulted in a pile of 5 players they Just give the stat to the tallest bloke standing off the contest, Brodie is their escape clause.

Don't get me wrong I love having the bloke in my SC team but seriously why do they let his mum record his stats?

    mick · 03/07/2020 at 23:20

    Just to emphasise the point.
    After round 3 in 2020 Pittonet who had only played 2 games (one against Max) was ranked 2nd for overall hitouts to advantage.
    Grundy who had played 3 games, 1 against English, 1 against Ivan Soldo and 1 against Marshall wasn't in top 3 for hitouts to advantage.
    How can a bloke who is rubbish at rucking be considered one of the top 2 rucks in the comp?
    Therein lies the massive flaw in CD player ratings.

      Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 12:18

      U missed the 6 frees for.

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 00:32

    Don’t tell me Phillips game was worth 110.

    The ruckman this year are getting insane scores, even if they sent any good

Pman · 04/07/2020 at 00:24

I know this is probably a dumb question but I have Brander on field in Fwd line with King E and will get his 86 however if I put the C on Brander in order to get Grundy's VC score of 151 can I still use Brander as Capt given he'll effectively be benched once I receive Kings score of 86 once Eagles have played? My understanding is that is the case but just want to clarify, thanks..

    Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 01:05

    Yeah mate. You will get the vc score as well as Kings.

      Pman · 04/07/2020 at 01:34

      Cheers Holty

Derek · 04/07/2020 at 00:30

A 29 from Brown again shows the danger of having rookies on the field. Most people would had him on a bench loop, so no real damage done.

With Fyfe out, I need to pick 2 out of either Taylor, Rivers or Budarick on field.

Who is more likely to have a 29 out of those 3?

    Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 01:03

    Fair chance all will outscore him mate.

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 02:16

    After last week I'd have to say Rivers Derek, that 33 was disappointing…could be any of the 3 though really or any of them could get 75 or 80, sorry that doesn't help much.

      Jorg Ancrath · 04/07/2020 at 07:30

      Rivers looked good for a qtr. Toss up between he and Buda. I have them both on field this week. *sigh*

    Rivo · 04/07/2020 at 09:28

    I’m playing all 3 on field, using Budarick as a loop for Grundys Captain score. Budarick & Taylor for me if I had to pick.

      Derek · 04/07/2020 at 10:58

      Thanks fellas. If Swans were playing a bit later I could have looped rivers and Budarick.

      Have a feeling the Suns will struggle down at Geelong, away from home and a big milestone game for the cats.

      But I think I’ll just stick to the two higher averages

      Had Howe and Naismith to deal with so I’m just hoping to limit the damage having Fyfe on bench

      Current rank 590. A few crap rookie scores will see that disappear

    Lekdog · 04/07/2020 at 11:04

    I forgot to loop him, so that's fun

      Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:34

      I get the Browns confused. Thought it was our Brown score 40 last quarter points, but it was the other one

      Don’t see him getting a game next week

Pman · 04/07/2020 at 00:44

Rivers in my opinion as he scored a putrid 33 last week and unfortunately I'm stuck with having to play him on field in DEF as have nil bench coverage with Nobel and Mcasey not selected and trading Howe out.

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:32

    I think there were quite a few had a sigh of relief when Rivers was named.

    I’m going to bench him, so now watch him tonne up

    I saw his first half of his first game and thought he looked great. Didn’t watch last week, but the cats are tough to play. Won’t be surprised to see him do good. NDD has big wraps in him

Westy · 04/07/2020 at 07:25

When your backline has gone to custard – Daniel, Docherty, Starcevich, Stewart, Howe, Brander, Noble, Roberton – all you can do is patch it up.

I’m pretty happy with Maynard and Ridley after last night and Brander gets to be my captain loophole for Grundy.

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:28

    I would imagine you are feeling better than ‘pretty happy’ with your two new recruits

    I passed on both and let my hawthorn bias get in the way, Back on the Sicily roller coaster now

      Westy · 04/07/2020 at 13:35

      Thanks Derek, yes indeed. The only concern was Maynard on the bench at the end of the game. Hopefully it’s not an injury.

        Derek · 04/07/2020 at 15:03

        He might have been getting Sidebum’s midfield time. Was in the guts a lot

        Should be good for a few more weeks

Rivo · 04/07/2020 at 09:25

Traded Howe & Pickett to Lloyd & S.Hill via DPP swings. I know Lloyd is rolled gold premo but missed on Ridley last night. Need rooks to make more cash and maybe grab him next week? ๐Ÿ™„

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:25

    Lloyd is solid gold

      Rivo · 04/07/2020 at 13:01

      Cheers Derek. He’s a keeper but Ridley is fast becoming that option also. With so many late outs and changes in scheduling it seems safer to go for the tried and tested premos.

TommyC99 · 04/07/2020 at 10:30

Hey guys!

I asked this yesterday and got a few responses, but still really unsure what to do!

1. Cogs – Bont/Danger
2. Brander – Serong

With 24 trades left it's getting to the point where i have to use 2 a week so im not wasting them, so these 2 are the best options for my second trade. What would you guys pick?

    Ralph · 04/07/2020 at 12:20

    Thats a tough one Tommy! Personally I'd hold Brander for the swing this week and reassess next week if he gets a game or not. If theres someone else you can trade to get Serong in (Pickett, Budarick) maybe do that.

    If you do decide to go pull the trigger on Cogs I think I like Danger just that little bit more at his cheaper price (we need all the cash we can get this year)

      Ralph · 04/07/2020 at 12:34

      Ward has just been withdrawn due to soreness so maybe Cogs gets put back in the mids instead of playing as a small forward or whatever silliness was going on last week

        TommyC99 · 04/07/2020 at 12:45

        Hey ralph. The ward out does change things for sure! If i was to know for sure he scores 120+ and doesnt drop as much as we think he will, then its probably a hold. I'm just petrified he goes sub 100 again and ive got a 450k player on my hands who is simply too cheap to offload

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:22

    As a Cogs owner I was alarmed at his role last week. The good news was he stunk doing it.

    We new this was going to be GWS’s problem, too many good midfielders, Taranto back in a few weeks won’t help.

    I thought Cogs being the C would play a lead role in guts and his price was nice.

    In a year where trades are cheap and points important, the Cogs to Bont trade looks good.

    Would Serong be on your bench, or do you need to play him. I’d be worried about his TOG

      TommyC99 · 04/07/2020 at 12:42

      Hey Derek! Serong would be fighting with Buderick and J Mac for 2 spots, so id probably field him against a poor adelaide side, but i dont necessarily "need" him to be fielded.

      I am worried Cogs could bounce back, and as you said we have so many trades we can afford to sideways. I almost traded whitfield last week in the same position, but the difference between the 2 is that whitfield will be top 6, whereas Cogs may struggle for top 10 mids.

      Does this change your opinion as to which one i should do?

        Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:54

        Ward out could be a game changer

        If you don’t trade Cogs this week, you might not get a better price for him and therefore you need to hold him longer, ward and Taranto will be back and he could be out of the guts again.

        If you have a luxury trade available, I’d seriously look at doing it.

        Bont and Danger both good options. Do you have Oliver or Macrea?

          TommyC99 · 04/07/2020 at 13:32

          Yup ive got both! Other 2 mids are crippa and neale.

          I find myself watching both bont and danger behind my couch! Both loved by CD and both highly influential players. As i mentioned above, if cogs goes sub 100 this week he'd be way too cheap to get rid of so this week is now or never.

          I basically have 2 trades a week for the rest of the season, so i want to make a second trade this week. Its basically brander or cogs to go.

          Would you bring in bont or danger?

            Derek · 04/07/2020 at 13:46

            I have Danger at M6

Ja191 · 04/07/2020 at 11:04

Got two options to get hill or serong in, who does everyone like more?

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:15

    With Hill you know the risks. A good player (almost-premium in his day) at rookie price, but with a massive injury risk. Should be in their best 22. I was impressed with his 80% TOG last week, but his scoring did die in second half, but the run should have done him good

    Serong you are buying potential with an opportunity to get a bit more midfield time for a couple of weeks. I worry about his TOG. It got a bump last week when Fyfe went off, but I’m thinking Mundy and Brayshaw will benefit this week.

    I got Hill last week and playing him on field ahead of Rivers. Another game I’ll be watching from behind the sofa

    Ralph · 04/07/2020 at 12:17

    I've doubled down and brought in both (looking at some big trades next week) but if I had to choose just one it'd be Serong. His CBA numbers were decent and I'd assume they'll increase with Fyfe out and he should make some decent coin over the next 3-4 weeks given he keeps getting a gig

      Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:38

      He had 7 CBA in last quarter after Fyfe went off. If that continues this week he will be gold.

Because of the carnage in the backline I’ve had to bench Fyfe, next week do I trade Fyfe or continue to hold him?

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:07

    Obviously that depends on Fyfe’s injury

    He probably won’t play next week and the following week is the big derby back in Perth on Sunday evening. He would be good odds to play then.

    The question is bench him for another week or not.

    It will depend on this weeks injuries

    At this stage i’ll hold him as next week I was painting the fence to get Whitfield

    Rivo · 04/07/2020 at 12:58

    I’m holding Fyfe after carnage in the defence this week. If Fyfe gets up for the Derby it’s a good hold and worth the punt. The points leaking from playing rooks can be offset with smart Captain selections. The trade off from holding is finding the right rooks to cull when it’s time to upgrade.

Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 12:31

Stringer out for maybe 4.

    hedski · 04/07/2020 at 14:49

    They are saying up to 3 months now Shake

      Derek · 04/07/2020 at 15:01

      Will give him time to add a few more kgs

        Pman · 04/07/2020 at 15:08

        He, Tippa and DeGoey have all been in good paddocks…

      Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 15:38

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 12:36

    That might be good for Cogs

TommyC99 · 04/07/2020 at 13:35

Bont or Danger for Cogs?

    Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 14:49

    Kelly.

hedski · 04/07/2020 at 14:51

Get a wriggle on McInerney, you'll struggle to beat Browns 29 at this rate.
Budda or Rivers on field?

    Pman · 04/07/2020 at 15:09

    Budarick has a better ceiling and is more consistent than Rivers IMO.

      hedski · 04/07/2020 at 15:27

      Yeah I'm leaning that way Pman, but I'm hoping suns are shit against my cats.

        Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 15:36

      AuroraBorealis?! · 04/07/2020 at 15:57

      Supposedly from an incident in 2015. Not good.

        Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 16:12

        2018 only changed now with one offence

          Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 16:16

          Sorry meant to say 2015

          AuroraBorealis?! · 04/07/2020 at 16:16

          Fox sports reporting the incident was from 2015, it was reported and looked into without any charges in 2018, and he is now being charged with it. I like to understand the full story before rushing to condemnation because 'sexual assault' has a very broad definition. That being said, if it was enough to warrant a charge from the police it must've been quite severe.

TBone_23 · 04/07/2020 at 16:15

Have 20 minutes to decide, Cogs to Dangerfield (or anyone up to 575,800k)? Still have a trade left to use this week with no other issues. Could also grab Wingard who is priced unders and try to go Long up to Yeo in two weeks as well with the money saved from trading Cogs out

Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 16:38

Well I stuffed up my loophole. Didn’t take the e off Brown so can’t go Neale to Gawn now. Have put the vc on Rowell.

    Jas · 04/07/2020 at 16:51

    Rowell just popped his shoulder out

      Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 16:53

      Yep. I guess times like this there’s bigger things in the world then my sc side. Hopefully nothing to serious for the young man

    Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 17:03

    Who’s your capt?

      NDD · 04/07/2020 at 17:29

      in the same boat and i play holty. can you have 2 E' S AND get the highest if one doesn't play Brander currently e and want to put whitfieldd as a 2nd E probably not

        Derek · 04/07/2020 at 17:40

        If one doesn’t play, he won’t count. You will get the other E score

          NDD · 04/07/2020 at 18:14

          thanks mate doesn't matter all e's used up

      Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 17:43

      Unsure. Neale been on fire but up against Port. And we all know CD been looking after the rucks so Gawn the other option.

Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 16:51

Rowell gone. Shoulder. Poor kid

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 16:55

We can't take a trick this year

Rowell out with a shoulder 1st 10 mins.

In def
Howe, Stewart, brandner and noble didnt get a gig. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

    poloko48 · 04/07/2020 at 17:09

    Certainly not good for him, Gold Coast or footy in general as he's been amazing, but this could be good for SC. Pretty much everyone in contention has him, so will mean one less cookie cutter selection. Will be interesting to see who he is traded to.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 17:31

      Glass half full – Izak a lock to debut next week

      Derek · 04/07/2020 at 17:39

      The difference is people with enough problems already compared to those who can luxury trade

      Already had my trades for next week planned, now have to deal with Rowell

JugHead · 04/07/2020 at 17:13

Really scratching my head with Danger this year. He is quality, no question. But its hard to commit $550k + on a player who is struggling to ton up.

    Derek · 04/07/2020 at 17:36

    He has been playing full forward most of the first half.

      Loop · 05/07/2020 at 05:44

      Fwd/mid next year.

Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 18:12

Wow, made so many mistakes this weekend. Had a migraine all day. Forgot to put Rankine onfield to get Kings score. Forgot to do my trades before the Geelong game so I could put Budarick and Rivers on the bench in other lines. stuffed up my loophole. Will need to hope now Rivers and Taylor score really well.

Pman · 04/07/2020 at 18:16

Did Budarick get injured too or is he just having a quiet game?

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 19:17

    I thought I heard them say he was 'keeping Gaz quiet' so maybe a lockdown role?

      Pman · 04/07/2020 at 19:47

      Given Gaz's score then it sounds like he did his job but no good for SC!

Shake n bake · 04/07/2020 at 18:22

Danger spent 10 mins on the pine that qtr seemed like he loved it.

JugHead · 04/07/2020 at 18:30

I can't be the only one wondering if Jack Steven would be going better carrying a couple less kg……….

Maverick_ · 04/07/2020 at 18:41

Sturt or C Taylor onfield in the forward line?

How about Rowell, very very bad news!
What a season it's been.
Good too see gold coast doing well though

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 20:10

    Who'd you go with Mav?…Taylor already got Budarick's score in 1 quarter.
    Hope Rowell's ok and doesn't miss too much, such a shame.

Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 18:45

I’d go Taylor. Yeah not good news for the young star. Hopefully will be back soon

mick · 04/07/2020 at 18:58

Decided not to take Browns 29 and to give badarick a go surely he could get less than 29
That went well, yes he can

    Pman · 04/07/2020 at 19:48

    As did I, they both will be on the chopping block in the coming weeks.

Neverweaken · 04/07/2020 at 20:23

A few weeks ago. Deciding between Bailey Smith and Simpkin. Went Smith!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 20:34

    Shitty luck there, especially if you also have Rowell, Starcevich and Budarick, with all the under performing and injuries so far this game isn't all that enjoyable at the moment.

mick · 04/07/2020 at 20:25

Is anybody just full of joy and wonderment at how perfectly this round is going so far?

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 20:37

    Just write it off as a practice year Mick, or the bad luck year, can't even see myself getting a full side with all the sideways trades I've had to / wanted to do, and the bloody injuries mounting up now too…and half these rookies are stinking it up now bigtime!

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 20:41

      Times are Grimm mate I can't even visit my girlfriend in Wentworth coz her husband reckons that he'll dob me in to the cops for crossing the border. The fine is so large that I could fly a professional up from Adelaide and still be a couple of hundred in front.

    TOPHAWK1 · 04/07/2020 at 20:47

    I like seasons like this. Chaos! Everyone has a chance. LOL

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 22:04

      The [email protected] teams will make up yards this week with the amount good picks throwing up bricks and mass injuries across the board.
      If the Dees could get caught up in another corona scare to give us best 18 it would be a real bonus

Pman · 04/07/2020 at 21:06

Been a shocking round so far for Rookies (at least mine) with low scores with Brown 29, Budarick 28, Rowell 5 and Starcevich on 5 points at half time and Rivers & Sturt still to come tomorrow. Thankfully I put Taylor on field ahead of Sturt as he's scoring nicely. Lots of selection headaches coming up this week.

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 21:29

    I've got all those guys too Pman, and Rozee polluting my fwd line, another sideways rage trade coming up.

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/07/2020 at 21:13

Looks like my choice to trade in the Bont was a bad one

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 21:27

    Probably be ok in the long run AB, reckon there'll be a lot of sub 2000 scores this week with all the spudding going on, even Neale might only get 120 this week! lol

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:56

      Hope so Rusty

    holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 13:39

    Same mate

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 14:07

      Had a choice between Gaff and the Bont, both were tagged this week. I think i wish i went with Gaff though, like his consistency

mick · 04/07/2020 at 21:17

Hahaha Houston decides to turn it up a notch now that all of the supercoaches have sold him

    Pman · 04/07/2020 at 21:39

    Do you have him Mick? I punted him 3 weeks ago for Simpkin and haven't looked back.

      Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 21:46

      Still 18% surprisingly, can't remember how many had him at the start, I was one of the suckers.

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 22:00

      Nah Pman he didn't fit into my structure b4 round 1. I breathed a sigh of relief when he didn't get the mid minutes. Reckon tonite wasn't enough to look at him again

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 22:01

      I think we al;l have Curtis don't we?

        Pman · 04/07/2020 at 22:34

        Yep and thankfully had him on ground and he just raised the bat for a nice debut 100.

        redherringfc · 05/07/2020 at 07:45

        He was on the chopping block until I needed to fix my backline up.

    Neverweaken · 04/07/2020 at 22:27

    I still have him cos every week I face other disasters. And with all the outs this week I had to keep him

    derek · 04/07/2020 at 23:00

    i doubled down on him. traded him into all my draft league (Houston, Mills and JJ)

    It was a case he is playing at half back (no midfield time at all). Ports 4 games have been against fairly easy opponents, so the ball just wasn't getting down his end.

    Tonight he saw plenty of it.

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 23:15

      very good point derek. I don't think anybody else is as good as the lions though so I doubt that he'll ave 90

        derek · 04/07/2020 at 23:35

        GWS give up a lot of points to defenders. Port play GWS next week

Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 21:41

Not a great week to bring in Bont.

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 21:45

    Macrae ain't doing much better mate, he used to be one the top elite mids, now he's just blah..and he's not getting tagged like Bont was.

      Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 22:04

      Macrae’s strength has always been his endurance. Always finished quarters off well. Wonder if the shorter quarters are affecting his scoring? He has always scored well at the end of quarters.

        gator59 · 04/07/2020 at 22:43

        Not having his off sider playing (Hunter) where they just absolutely feed off one another is the major problem

poloko48 · 04/07/2020 at 21:45

Has Bont gone off injured?

    Holty01 · 04/07/2020 at 22:12

    Nope, got tagged.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 22:03

See robin outscored Batman yet again.
Geez those lions are a scoring a monolith.

mick · 04/07/2020 at 22:13

Not going as bad as I thought Only 3 onfield sub 50's so far this round
Budarick, Rowell, Xerri and SPS got over the line by 1
I'll only have the 1 donut if Rivers plays but that'll prob be another sub 50
Predictor reckons that I'll scrape in for 1975 if Max gets 162 but that was including a 112 for Macrae so 1950 if I'm lucky ๐Ÿ™

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 22:21

    Betcha there are lots of teams with smith and Rowell on ground.

    9 for two players ouch.

    That is a world of pain right there….๐Ÿ™‰

      mick · 04/07/2020 at 23:17

      Luck has always been a major factor in this game but a lot of those who have good luck refuse to accept that fact

Neverweaken · 04/07/2020 at 22:26

Houston has kept surviving in my team with all the carnage. Might keep him now ๐Ÿ™‚

AuroraBorealis?! · 04/07/2020 at 22:41

Jeez, what a round of carnage. Looking at a sub 1900 score, there goes my 600-odd rank :'(

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 22:44

    Yeah be a lot of teams with Rowell and smith on deck.

    9!

    And probably had Whitfields 8 two weeks ago.

    That's too many swift kicks right in the nads!

    And people say.luck doesnt play a part?

    It is a HUGE factor.

      derek · 04/07/2020 at 23:37

      still spewing about two weeks ago. Didn't have Whitfield or Sturt, but only best 18 counted.

    derek · 04/07/2020 at 23:11

    rookies on field will kill a score this year.

    Having Fyfe on bench had to start an extra rookie, Starcevic's 38 could have been worse. It could have been Brown's 29 or Budarick's 28 who were both on my bench.

    Pulled the right lever with King and Taylor on field in the forward line.

    Just have to get a half decent score from Rivers & Hill tomorrow (decided at last min to go Rivers over Budarick)

    i'm seeing some rough scores this week. Hopefully i'll just scrap over 2000.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 23:24

      Yeah would have been good to put the E on king on Thursday night.

      But just couldn't based on his scores so far.
      E on Taylor worked ok.

    Russty_ · 04/07/2020 at 23:18

    Reckon 2000 will be a good score this week AB

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/07/2020 at 23:32

      Someone will have a pod team and punch out a 2200 plus.

      But reality is 2000 is a pipe dream for most of us.

        Loop · 05/07/2020 at 05:55

        I'm playing against one of the 1050 people who has Butters.

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2020 at 08:47

    Its putrid alright. Bontempelli last night was horrendous after his 166 SC the week prior. Dont know what to make out of that bloke. Well, everyone copped rowell's 6 so no big deal there. I was fortunate not having Bailey Smith like so many other coaches. As it sits, I am on 1269 with this lot to come today: Doedee, Rivers, Sicily, Tom Green, Coniglio, Petracca, Dusty, and Whitfield. If I can scrape to 2000 today, it will be nothing short of a miracle. Good luck today AB. TH

      Holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 10:44

      Ummm, I think you are having a better week then most mate.๐Ÿคž You get to 2000

        TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2020 at 10:48

        I am projected to go 1909 this round. Just hoping that today brings us some decent scores so that we can both get to 2000. You are just in front of me in the projections in the JR Mega league. Its going to be a nailbiter!

    Holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 10:37

    Terrible week for plenty Aurora. 993/13 for me. I’m in the same boat as you. Also doesn’t help when I’ve stuffed up this weekend with loophole and forgetting to put Rankine onfield to get a kings score. I can’t just blame the spuds, I’m just as much of a spud this week.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:45

      Its a rough one for most i'd imagine Holty.

    gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 11:47

    1467 /16 With Rivers, Gawn, Dusty, Cogs, Whitfield and Sonny.. Hoping to crack 2100 / 2200 lol

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:46

      You might not end up with too bad a score comparatively Gator, nice work

        gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 23:38

        Cheers AB, It worked out ok .. A little bit of luck with Vandermeer scoring 99

Good to see a defender in Andrews score well (83) from Just 6 touches – same as King scoring well from not many touches on Thursday night

TelescopicCox · 05/07/2020 at 08:27

Thoughts on McLuggage? With my midfield premos stinking it (Bont & Macrae), I’m looking for reinforcements. Is McLuggage a downhill skier or can he legit keep it up to go 115+

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2020 at 08:42

    Hugh Mc Cluggage is my hero!! I started with him and after two early turds, he has been nothing short of magnificient. He is my shining beacon in a side which has turds scattered everywhere this round. I reckon he is the new Josh Dunkley. Why not back him in TCox. Cheers. TH

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/07/2020 at 10:13

      And don't forget his side kick hawk.

      Batman is getting all the acolades but robin is scoring as well if not better yet hasn't even rated a mention.

      He has been berry good and he is cheaper.

        TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2020 at 10:20

        Robin aka Jarrod Berry has been in stellar form. Been flying under the radar big time. And then there is the other Jarryd. Mr Lyons has not been to shabby either!! Brisbane is where the big midfielder points are atm. Just ask Lachie Neale! LOL

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/07/2020 at 10:24

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:45

      Same Hawk, very happy that i didn't drop him after the 2 early stinkers.

Holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 10:29

How we all doing community? I’m having a stinker this week. 993/13. Anyone avoided the carnage?

    TOPHAWK1 · 05/07/2020 at 10:43

    Hi Holty. I reckon this is the worst round in SC we have had in years. I am projected for a score of 1909 from here. 8 left to play. 2000 right now is a long way off. Absolutely putrid round. Good luck today Holty. May we have just a little joy today. TH

      holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 10:55

      I have a great feeling Gawn will smash out a 200 and I’ll have the C on him. That means I’ll get close to 2000. Realistic? It’s not wishful thinking is it? ๐Ÿค”
      Good luck to you as well mate.

    The Ranger · 05/07/2020 at 10:55

    It's a horrow show mate, I'll be lucky to break 1900.
    Weighing up whether to take Neales 130 or stcik the C on Oliver or Cogs just for giggles.

    KSinny · 05/07/2020 at 11:07

    Not doing too horrible, I'm 1152/13 so should be able to get over 2000.

      holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 11:51

      Nice mate.

    redherringfc · 05/07/2020 at 13:43

    Not avoiding it, but a decent chance to crack 2000 and maybe even nudge 2100.

      redherringfc · 05/07/2020 at 14:00

      And 79 from Laird and 44 from Sturt at HT are about what I’d thought I’d get in total from them.

        Derek · 05/07/2020 at 14:06

        The ball is down the right end for them both

        Looks like Brayshaw is the beneficiary of Fyfe being out 85% TOG

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 14:29

    Not going too well either mate, maybe 1900 or so this week?…depends on what Laird, Hill, Dusty, Whitfield and Rivers do yet.

holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 11:05

Would like to give a shoutout to the Up There Cazaly and my Lek&Patch’s Rabble Leagues. Sitting 11th and 12th overall in the league rankings. Thought I’d get in now as my score this week may cripple the rankings.

    Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 11:53

    Think there might be a few in the same boat. I went with budarick instead of Sturt who hasn’t played. In my league l can see at least 2 teams that have donuts ๐Ÿฉ so it’s just the way it goes sometimes. Just really great Holty you and the rest of the teams in my league are fantastic!

      holty01 · 05/07/2020 at 12:03

      Lol, you haven’t seen my score obviously. But you are right we do have some very solid teams doing well this season.

      NDD · 05/07/2020 at 12:06

      I am in both also and i'm sure other leagues will suffer Pleasure to be in both

        AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:48

        I'm playing you this week Neil, looks like it's going down to the wire. Good luck mate!

      Derek · 05/07/2020 at 12:24

      Says the fella who is sitting outright (undefeated) leader in Cazaly. Your doing ok Shake

        Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 12:37

        lots of luck involved. Missed you last year. Tried hard in recruiting you back! A lot of loyal teams of the years!

    hedski · 05/07/2020 at 12:05

    I'm playing you in Cazaly Holty, I'm not going to bad considering.
    I'm on 1392 with Laird, Doedee, Sicily, Viney, Cogs, Wingard and Gawn to come.
    Hopefully I can crack 2000 with that lot but you never know this week, good luck for today mate <img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="๐Ÿ‘" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f44d.svg"&gt;

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 12:15

    Don't feel bad Holty, I've been going crap ever since round 2, also feel like I've let the team down a bit but there was no way to predict how this week would go,
    Everyone will have their turn at a low score or 2 mate.

    Derek · 05/07/2020 at 12:28

    I’m playing you in the Rat Pack Holty. Gig Max is probably what is going to decide the outcome

    AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 13:42

    Wow well done everyone in Up There Cazaly! And also my apologies for bringing the league down this week

    gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 14:51

    Also in both .. I know this is a crap round, but keep up the good work fellas

    The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 15:01

    Don't feel bad holty many teams are struggling this week.

    I'm very Glad to be part of the Rabbles and Guns & Rookies league, appreciate it I didn't get booted out. Unlike other league I've joined kicked me out.

    Thanks again to organizers of those league.

    Cheers
    The Jinx

NDD · 05/07/2020 at 11:41

Can't fix the problems with another 5 trades At least 6 poor rookies 2 midpricers and 3 prems are poor Think i shall forget the round and readjust. Bont Rozee and Rowell ,pending the extent of his injury, are all quality just one of those days The two midpricers Lukosious and Pitto also may come good so it's the dud rookies that bug me.Two that are the most expendable are Budarik and BROWN but maybe the incoming 2 rookies may be just as bad. The 2 B's will no doubt be dropped may have to carry Rowell if it's minor. Horrible round

    gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 12:28

    Cheer up mate the day is already gloomy outside

s.c.tragic · 05/07/2020 at 11:58

What a scoring shambles, 1 donut and about 5 others lucky to scrape 100 between them. Are we having fun yet? NOOOOOooo

Dash · 05/07/2020 at 12:28

I've got Fyfe, Pickett and Bennell all on my bench. Do I trade one today, knowing I have to deal with Rowell like everyone next week? Or just hold and deal with it next week. Yep, it's been a tough round for everyone.

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 14:02

    I reckon only if you're getting a donut Dash, otherwise don't reckon Fyfe will be out long and the other 2 could get recalled.
    No need to hold trades though this year, go for if it improves your side.

Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 13:43

Damn Sturt's already beat Budarick's score in quarter 2 ..what a week lol

AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 15:17

Bang! Brayshaw repaying the faith. If he can consistently get high TOG he should be good, happy i held him

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 15:41

    Nice leg up there this week AB, shame Hill was a M.I.A case again after the first quarter, I guess he was kinda rookie priced though, probs should've gotten Young instead I'm thinking now.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 15:56

      I was displeased that i missed out in Hill at first but now i'm happy. Starts off games really well and then just fades into the background. Looks old, disinterested and tired.

hedski · 05/07/2020 at 15:31

Good start to the day finally, Laird and Doedee both tonning up.
Hopefully not down hill from here…..
Go Tigers (for NDD) ๐Ÿป

    NDD · 05/07/2020 at 16:43

    Shocking kicking by dees Dion

      hedski · 05/07/2020 at 17:25

      Not out of it yet Neil.

mick · 05/07/2020 at 16:29

Bloody Doedee and Brayshaw now I need 230 from Max to win my leagues

    Derek · 05/07/2020 at 16:41

    He is going to give it a nudge

    NDD · 05/07/2020 at 16:42

    might do that with C

Ben · 05/07/2020 at 16:42

Dusty looks cooked

Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 16:45

Degoey ruled out against hawks

The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 17:01

Big Max Gawn is on track to 200๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฅmy opponent has the C on him. Can't watch the game no more, should've stuck with my trades Lloyd and Max and sacrifice a donut in Def my Ruck department is giving me anxiety.

mick · 05/07/2020 at 17:52

Viney is sacked. Should never break the golden rule 'Only one Demon'

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 17:57

    I reckon if he didn't get that one big score first up, no one would've picked him, tell ya what I won't be putting Rivers, Budarick or T.Brown on field ever again if I can help it.

    Pman · 05/07/2020 at 18:05

    I have an itchy trigger finger and cannot wait to rage trade him, he actually went backwards score wise in the last QTR. Thinking straight swap for a discounted Whitfield who has a BE of 186 going into this match.

      mick · 05/07/2020 at 18:12

      I already have whitfield I need 2 mids this week Simpkin will be one who else should I look at ?
      I have macrae cripps Neale left after the injury carnage. I've had to put whitfield and Heeney in the middle to avoid donuts and still had to take budaricks score. Whitfield and heeney will have to stay in the middle next week.
      I can get 2 guns for Viney and Rowell

    mick · 05/07/2020 at 18:50

    Rowell > Simpkin and Viney>Boak but I'll still be in danger of Donuts if Brander doesn't play next week

Pman · 05/07/2020 at 17:58

I can't believe I was dumb enough to get sucked in Jay Viney who is a Spud and hasn't looked like scoring a 100 since his Round One 186. He will be rage trade number one this week.

The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 18:08

Nervously awaiting for GWS vs Hawks game
Opponet currently 1838 + Whitfield
I'm on 1446 + Whitfield, Titch, Haynes, Ceglar, Sicily and Green to play.

Need this win to move up the ladder in The Rabbles league.
Please pretty please DeBoer don't tag Titc, tag Wingard instead.๐Ÿ˜

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 18:11

    Good luck with that Jinxsy, I reckon you'll get over the line, and score well this week.

      The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 20:17

      Thanks Russty

      Not looking good Sicily and Ceglar are killing me.

      I'd be lucky to just get over line, don think lll hit the 2000 mark this week.

      What a weekend aye.

        Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 20:32

        Yeah bad luck mate, I didn't expect the Hawks to go like this, I actually tipped em this week, Sicily will probs get a 130 next week, he's such a rollercoaster ride, Deboer Tagged Worps instead of Titch that was a surprise to me too.

          The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 20:44

          Yeah mate, glad Titch didn't get tagged. I'll take his 100 odd SC point, Haynes is my saviour my this week, i think i just got over the line in all my leagues. My two trades didn't turn out that bad with Haynes and Daniel.

          Now I have to find a way to get Gawn or Goldy. I have Howe to trade and a rookie to cull.

dontblushbaby · 05/07/2020 at 19:42

Glad I went Lloyd and not Sicily this week when trading out Howe ,however my choices of rookies on field were poor with Brown,Budarick on field and King & Taylor on the bench and no way I could loop.

    Derek · 05/07/2020 at 19:44

    I let my hawks bias get in the way of my better judgment and got Sicily this week.

    My score was looking ok until now

      The Lost Boys · 05/07/2020 at 19:47

      Is Sicily playing forwards??? His score is terrible ๐Ÿ™

        Derek · 05/07/2020 at 20:07

        Hawks have the ball in their half a lot. But GWS not kicking long, just short chip kicks

Derek · 05/07/2020 at 19:50

Oh No Sicily

    Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 20:08

    I went Haynes for consistency

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 21:06

    Is the Mcevoy/Ceglar experiment over now Derek?

hedski · 05/07/2020 at 20:27

Sicily has been good until this round, thanks for breaking him Derek ๐Ÿคฃ.
Jokes, looks like I broke the Chad, your welcome Patch.๐Ÿคฎ

    Lekdog · 06/07/2020 at 11:50

    hahaha!

poloko48 · 05/07/2020 at 20:32

Good week to bring Nick Haynes in ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

NDD · 05/07/2020 at 20:48

haynes and caleb won't drop turds,that;s why both will be in my team ,just got to get the coin

    Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 20:50

    I brought in Haynes and Kelly this week Neil.

      NDD · 05/07/2020 at 21:22

      Will they drop brown shake

        Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 21:49

        Degoey now out might save him. Kelly kicked 3 in the scratch match which was promising. Just waiting for the next son of dacios to come thou ๐Ÿคฃ

    The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 20:54

    Brought in both this NDD, just need Lloyd to complete my Backline and not have to worry fielding any rookies.

    But I need to fix my Ruck and FWD in the next couple of weeks.

      NDD · 05/07/2020 at 21:23

      Very smart move TJ i have tried for a few weeks now but keep getting injuries

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/07/2020 at 20:49

In a week when not much went right this was me Saturday.

Bugger wish I had of put the E on king. Ahh well trades?

Stewart – trade to Hayes, sicily, sicily, Hayes back and forth, back and forth.

Then thought back to last round sicily out scored Hayes but he was really quiet first half came home like a train.

Hayes just consistent with no big scores every week.

Decision. Stuff it I'll go Hayes for his consistency
Wanted daniel but couldn't afford him.

So got that one right this week anyway and what do you know?

He can punch out a big score. ๐Ÿ‘

    JohnDJ59 · 05/07/2020 at 21:04

    Haynes came in for me as well as the Howe replacement, never considered Sicily, to inconsistent for my liking.

    Russty_ · 06/07/2020 at 00:48

    Nice one Trigga, I felt the same way about my Ridley trade last week, big diff between Haynes and Siciflog this week lol

TelescopicCox · 05/07/2020 at 20:52

Props to all who jumped on Haynes. Reminds me of Stewart’s breakout season

My Kelly to Fyfe trade is looking worse by the week. Hopefully Fyfe is back soon

AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 21:06

Managed to just break 2000 this week, even with a donut from Noble being dropped. Considering how bad things looked on saturday i'm actually quite happy with that. How did everyone else go? Thinking par will be somewhere in the region of 1900-2000

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/07/2020 at 21:12

    Par

    The Jinx · 05/07/2020 at 21:15

    Happy with 1956 winning all my league.
    I have to say Sicily and Ceglar was my biggest let down for the week, even though The Bont only scored 55. The rookies were horrible this week, not including Rowell just tuff luck for the kid.

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 21:15

    1928 aka…a bit shitey.
    Reckon that's a few over par this week.

      NDD · 05/07/2020 at 21:27

      1932 gat scored. over 2100 congrats mate great score

        gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 22:52

        Cheers mate

    Shake n bake · 05/07/2020 at 21:21

    Played out another good game scorpion ๐Ÿฆ‚ think l played you aswell Trigg.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 21:30

      Nice score Shake, you've certainly got the wood over me at the moment. Hopefully i can play you again in finals

    JohnDJ59 · 05/07/2020 at 21:27

    2020, happy with that after the carnage that happened to my team, had some good top scores from the usual players in Grundy, Neale Gawn and my new player to the team this weekend Haynes. Won 7/10 league games. I might have trouble fielding a full team this coming round with only two trades.

    The Ranger · 05/07/2020 at 21:29

    1958. Ugly round.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/07/2020 at 21:07

Our very own patchy boy cranks out a big 2226!

There's a rocket up the ranks.

    Russty_ · 05/07/2020 at 21:16

    Good job Patchy..great score for this fubar week

      NDD · 05/07/2020 at 21:28

      bet we hear about it

    gator59 · 05/07/2020 at 23:19

    Great job Patch

    poloko48 · 05/07/2020 at 22:01

    Oh man that sucks! Bad luck mate, hope you do a lot better next week. How are you ranked now?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2020 at 00:22

    At least I did better than someone Holternator! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pman · 05/07/2020 at 21:47

2002 – Sicily and Viney hurt me big time today.

poloko48 · 05/07/2020 at 22:00

Rage trade 1 – Rowell to Simpkin (Budarick FWD to MID)
Rage trade 2 – Pittonet to Butler (Cameron FWD to RUC)

Gonna sit on this for a couple of days and think about it. Butler has Freo & Crows next 2 so should keep going. Simpkin I can't ignore any more.

Thoughts? Current rank 2,589 (dropped 700 spots with a score of 1966 this week)

    poloko48 · 05/07/2020 at 22:07

    Shit, forgot about Ridley who I think is now must have.

    Revised rage trades:
    1. Rowell to Ridley (Starcevich DEF to MID)
    2. Pittonet to Simpkin (Cameron FWD to RUC)

    Better?

      silversovereign · 06/07/2020 at 09:44

      Pitto should do ok against English this week. I’m holding for 1 more week and hopefully he makes another $30k. I brought in the riddler last week and watched him for the first time. He’s the guy the bombers look to give it to. He has laser kick. I think he might be a hold for the rest of season.

        poloko48 · 06/07/2020 at 20:49

        Yeah but the problem is that Simpkin will likely rise by more than $30K so I feel like I've gotta do it now.

AuroraBorealis?! · 05/07/2020 at 22:27

Two POD upgrades this week in Rowell to Yeo and Starcevic to Treloar, these two selections can make or break my season, hope they go ok. Still leaves me 310k in the bank to paint the fence next week, might look at going Noble to Haynes and potentially Budarick down to a rookie on the bubble (fingers crossed one appears).

What are we thinking for trades guys?

    TBone_23 · 06/07/2020 at 00:09

    Love the sound of those trades Aurora. I was looking to do the Rowell to Yeo trade myself, tempted to wait one more week to make sure Yeo yeo wouldn’t bite me in the but though. Other trade is be looking to make some cash and bring Aarts in. That would allow me to paint the fence next week with one eye on bringing in Baz Smith week after that as an almost side swap for B Long

      AuroraBorealis?! · 06/07/2020 at 11:59

      I think Yeo will be back to his best when he's back in WA, next week is still at the Gabba so i don't think waiting one more week will hurt. BE at 96 so he won't increase much

    The Ranger · 06/07/2020 at 09:27

    I'm looking to paint the fence with Budarick and Starcevic going out.
    Probably looking at Whitfield and Aarts.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 06/07/2020 at 12:00

      Like it Ranger

    The Jinx · 06/07/2020 at 13:05

    I was thinking the same AB, with Yeo and Duncan(Or Parker) for Howe and Rowell. Or I could go with Aarts and Gawn(Or Goldy)

    The upside with Gawn(Or Goldy) they are VC/C option each week and Aarts could make me some cash if he keeps his spot which he might Tigs has a lot of injuries over the weekend.

    What do ya think mate

      AuroraBorealis?! · 06/07/2020 at 13:33

      Aarts is becoming more and more appealing to me, as you said he has decent job security amongst all the injuries and the fact some senior players wont be going to the hub. As you said Gawn and Goldy are both very handy as captaincy options. I like it mate

      NDD · 06/07/2020 at 14:00

      yeah I like it also TJ Aarts is a no brainer now with all those injuries and non playing people .His JS is now high and Gawn is simply a must have I am doing the same but with Grundy

dontblushbaby · 05/07/2020 at 22:38

Next Round please, everyone has Rowell trade, so lets move on

    NDD · 06/07/2020 at 12:52

    Hope to be moving him on regardless maybe for Grundy

      Peter · 06/07/2020 at 15:57

      Im looking at trading Rowell to Haynes and starcevich to Doedee need to sort out my defence…have i missed the boat on Doedee? Not many cheapish options around that can average 80 or more…current backline…Doc.Houston.Ridley.Starcevich.Young.Rivers.Brander.William…any advice appreciated

Rockta · 05/07/2020 at 23:22

If Rowell out for only 2 weeks, do we trade him out given his BE is 150+?
With all the carnage over the past few weeks, it’s already going to be incredibly hard to get to full Premo. He has to be considered a keeper under the circumstances?

    Russty_ · 06/07/2020 at 00:21

    If he's only out for a week or 2 I'd keep him regardless of B/E cause he's a scoring machine and definitely a keeper from what I've seen so far.

    Lekdog · 06/07/2020 at 11:49

    I'm trading him regardless, I reckon Gold Coast will be really careful with him. Worst case scenario it's the same injury Gablett had up there and we don't see him again

      derek · 06/07/2020 at 11:57

      i'll be moving him straight to Whitfield.

      He will miss a few weeks and won't be quite the same when he gets back

    The Ranger · 06/07/2020 at 14:26

    It's a wait and see I reckon, the fact that he felt able to continue playing makes me think it's not a bad injury and he might just miss a week but we'll have to wait for an update.
    If he misses then at least he doesn't bleed cash and can be held for next weeks trades.

derek · 06/07/2020 at 11:55

      Thanks lads, that's me! Had a lucky week with some PODs putting in some work for me (Brayshaw, Haynes, McCluggage and Sheppard). Stoked I still managed to pull that score with Rowell taking on his title as the second coming of Gaz too seriously.
