Cancel your plans and get working on that butt groove, community. From Wednesday, the AFL will unleash 33 games in 19 days across 4 states (no points for guessing which state isn’t included). It means things that smarter people than me have analysed, and it also means the dreaded bye rounds will return. But, BUT, it also means MORE TRADES. Woo-hoo! Until then, we’ve got round 8 to sink our teeth into (which started last night, but ya know…) so let’s hook in!

Newz you can Uze

Toby Greene is back tonight as the Giants take on the Tigers and Sam Jacobs has won a reprieve with Shane Mumford being useless / injured. Pat Naish replaces the injured Josh Caddy.  

North have made four changes for Saturday afternoon, the most pertinent being Jack Ziebell after he pinged his hamstring again in his return last week. LDU will line up for his first game of the year. Carlton have named an unchanged lineup. The Swans have done one better and named five changes, handing a debut to their 2017 first round pick in Matthew Ling. Their other changes won’t hurt you or your SC team

Hawthorn will debut former Sun and Eagle Keegan Brooksby for the game. Rejoice if you’ve still got Mitch Georgiades gathering dust on your forward bench, he’s back in this week as Port have dropped the Hoff for their game against the Saints on Saturday evening. Ryan Byrnes is straight out again for the Saints after debuting last week.   

On Sunday, veteran Bryce Gibbs has been added to Adelaide’s 26 man squad. Essendon have again swapped Andrew Phillips and Tom Bellchambers. Former Lion Tom Cutler is also in the squad as the Bombers seek to replace Cale Hooker (calf). There will be at least one change at the Eagles with Brendon Ah Chee hurting his back. New faces Nic Reid, Harry Edwards, and Bailey Williams could debut alongside Luke Shuey. The Pies have lost Travis Varcoe and Jordan De Goey to injury  Matt Scharenberg and Darcy Cameron are among the inclusions. Stefan Martin is out injured giving a green light for Max Gawn to score eleventy billion on Sunday night. The forgotten Alex Witherden has been included in the squad, and well as possible debuts for Connor Ballenden and Keidean Coleman. The Dees have added TMac and Nathan Jones to their squad. 

Squads for Monday’s game between the Dockers and the Cats will be named tonight and finalised Saturday arvo.  

Breakeven Breakdown

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

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

Smooth Kevy’s Lock of the Week

The buzz has been for Bailey Smith this week, but given that he played last night we’ll need to look elsewhere.

We’ll be given an extra four trades to get through the upcoming footy bonanza, so should we just get Big Maxy if you don’t already have him? He’ll set you back a few dollary-doos (776.7 dollary-doos to be exact), but his lowest score since the restart is 141. Worth it.

If you’re a bit tight for cash, a pair of Giants stand out this week. Lachie Whitfield (470.9k) has shed close to 135k from his starting price. He hasn’t quite hit his form of 2019 as yet, however take out his injury affected 8 and his average jumps to 99.5. His MID/FWD eligibility is also handy. Stephen Coniglio (501.5k) has only one score under 87 so far this year and smashed out a 141 last week against Brisbane. He faces the tager-less Tigers tonight. Is he back?

Outwit, outlast, outluck

We are starting to get to the pointy end of the groups stage. Most divisions are down to the final 10.

Remember the top 4 in each group will progress to the Champion of Champions Division


The teams who were eliminated last week:

Div 1 – The Grannies & Jackie Hannah

Div 2 – half-WITTS & The Try Agains

Div 3 – Dockers2020 & stewyswan

Div 4 – Ivanhow Allstars & 8.4 Goals Grenfell

Div 5 – SeddonFC & McMutchDevonHam

Div 6 – Jlow & Jolly Jels

Div 7 – Coopers Poopers & Noirlust

We are saying goodbye to some really top managers. A few of them not long ago had their hands on the immunity necklace.

Speaking of the Immunity Necklace, the following teams get to wear the necklace week and therefore avoid elimination this week.


Div 1 – FuggNuggles (2330)
Div 2 – Tophawks (2423)
Div 3 – Booooom Time (2326)
Div 4 – Wah Wah FC (2365) – Back 2 Back immunity
Div 5 – Brock's Beasts (2369)
Div 6 – Loose Men FC (2447) – WOW!

Good luck everyone

thanks Fellas

    ndd · 24/07/2020 at 18:17

    nice one derek

    hedski · 26/07/2020 at 16:29

    I might be needing that immunity this week the way I'm travelling.

Derek · 24/07/2020 at 16:02

Simpkin looks like he will play after getting through training

    MagicGnome97 · 24/07/2020 at 16:14

    Hopefully its not a Cunnington situation where North are playing him when hes clearly not fit to play. That would be a disaster. Great news though.

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 19:58

    I wish he didn't, I would've gotten Budarick's score.

Derek · 24/07/2020 at 16:15

King to either; Bennell, Simpson or Mayes?

Will probably go onfield instead of taking Budarick!s 59

    Keenbutclueless · 24/07/2020 at 16:35

    I think Bennell. Not only the extra game, has the best job security and is probably the most known quantity. Simpson was very quiet for most of the game, but a goal got him a decent score. Mayes should be a good pick, but I don’t really know why he hasn’t been able to produce a decent score across his few seasons. Maybe it’s a one off, maybe he’s turned a corner. To me it’s a guess. So, Bennell for me

      derek · 24/07/2020 at 16:53

      i like how Bennell seems to be building. he might have a rest in a week or two, but he isn't far off having a big game

Lakey · 24/07/2020 at 16:52

Worth trading in Day for Starcevich even after his price rise last week? looks to be getting plenty of ball and taking marks.

    Lakey · 24/07/2020 at 16:52

    or McPherson?

      ndd · 24/07/2020 at 18:31

      reckon day looks ok

    Ja191 · 24/07/2020 at 17:20

    Yeah either/or iv’e personally brought in the egg with hopes he will average higher and be a straight swap to Stewart in 3-4 games

Ja191 · 24/07/2020 at 17:19

Stephen Hill out with an adductor strain if anyone has him 🙁

    derek · 24/07/2020 at 17:51

    why doesn't that surprise me

    KSinny · 24/07/2020 at 17:57

    Well there's a 0 for me 😪

    Rivo · 24/07/2020 at 18:05

    All good! McKay takes Hills place at D6. And Hill now becomes Captain to loop Macrae VC score. Brander moves to F8, fielding Aarts at F6, Cameron F7 Emergency. 👍🏽

Keenbutclueless · 24/07/2020 at 17:20

Hill out. Starcevich survives again!

    Funkhouser · 24/07/2020 at 18:44

    Yep Starcevich will end up in my team all year at this rate!

Cliffy · 24/07/2020 at 17:25

Hey guys,

Simple one, do I take Rankine's score for F6 or risk with Aarts? Aarts's average is actually less than what Rankine scored last night… Food for thought

    Ja191 · 24/07/2020 at 17:36

    Take rankine

Cliffy · 24/07/2020 at 17:31

Oh second thing also,

With McPherson named (currently my D6), should I still keep Starc and try to move on other rookies? Can't help but feel McPherson won't be ensured a spot every week with the Crows if he spuds one game, and maybe holding Starc could be good Emg insurance for me down back?

My defense right now is:

Docherty, Sicily, Laird, Short, Doedee, McPherson (Starc, O'Connor)

    Ja191 · 24/07/2020 at 17:38

    With starc already losing cash and the potential for players to be reseated with back to back games I’d be keeping him and getting rid of non playing rookies who have peaked (the likes of brander, brown, green)

JugHead · 24/07/2020 at 17:32

Does anyone know when final teams are announced for Monday?

    Lekdog · 24/07/2020 at 17:50

    Will be tomorrow

DEESNUTSRBIG · 24/07/2020 at 17:43

Should I trade?
A. Pittonet for Gawn – And take a donut in the backline
B. Trade T.Brown for a Premo defender

Backline – Docherty, Ridley, Laird, Doedee, Williamson, Hill… Brander, Rivers
Bloody S.Hill out injured and after bringing in B.Smith last night I only have 1 trade.

    Pman · 24/07/2020 at 19:08

    Given Stefan Martin isn't playing for Brisbane Big Max could score 200+ so I'd be getting Max in and put the C on him.

Lekdog · 24/07/2020 at 17:50

We are live answering your questions here:

Lach · 24/07/2020 at 17:57

Downgrade McIntyre to either Mayes or McKay or McPherson (DPP switch with rivers)

TommyC99 · 24/07/2020 at 18:20

1. King – Simpson/Bennell/mayes (dev smith pushes back to fwd)
2. J Mac – one of above
3. Starc – Day

Which one community?

    Mitch is back · 24/07/2020 at 18:37

    Would any of the ins be on field Tommy?

    If not I’d go Stach to Day

      TommyC99 · 24/07/2020 at 18:46

      Day would be on field with the hill out. The midfield rookie would contest budericks 60 but id probably take it on. So to answer your question, both would be!

        Mitch is back · 24/07/2020 at 18:54

        i think that Simpson or Bennell would likely outscore Day.

        Bennell seems to be working into the season, so for scoring and job security I would select Bennell.

        For cash I would have selected Day, and I think his JS is good, but Bennell should outscore him.

Josh · 24/07/2020 at 19:15

Backline is currently in a bit of strife with Hill going out:
Haynes, Doch, Ridley, Laird, Starcevic, Hill (BZT, Brander)

I’ll probably trade someone in via DPP
Any suggestions on who??

(other option is to cop the donut in the backline and go pit up to gawn)

    DEESNUTSRBIG · 24/07/2020 at 20:35

    Backline – Docherty, Ridley, Laird, Doedee, Williamson, Hill… Brander, Rivers

    I have decided to go Pittonet to Gawn and eat the stale donut. Gawn will probably score similar to
    Pitt+Premo defender and wont have to worry about Pittonet bleeding out, T.Stewart will be cheap next week.

jake · 24/07/2020 at 19:23

McPherson or Day – to replace hill?

    Trent · 24/07/2020 at 19:33


Trent · 24/07/2020 at 19:32

V on Coniglio or Boak

John · 24/07/2020 at 21:27

Trade Starcevich to Sicily


Trade Taylor to Petracca

JugHead · 24/07/2020 at 21:56

After seeing their scores at quarter time…. -3 vs 49…….to paraphrase a former coach….. if Pickett now goes on to outscore Whitfield, I'll spew up…….

Kangaz · 24/07/2020 at 22:25

Opponent has Mcrae and Josh Kelly. I have neither. My weeks over

Holty01 · 24/07/2020 at 22:28

Well with Hill out, seems I’ll be keeping Pitt for 1 more week. The loss of money will hurt.

    ndd · 24/07/2020 at 23:21

    Glad I culled him particularly for Grundy going to lose coin now

      Holty01 · 24/07/2020 at 23:32

      I’m actually considering taking the 🍩 Just to bring Grundy in. Still undecided

        ndd · 24/07/2020 at 23:48

        Pitto has a toughy as well though he did score well against Gawn

    Finnius · 26/07/2020 at 14:05

    I took the donut to bring in Gawn – I reckon the points difference especially with him as captain will make it worth it this week.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/07/2020 at 22:31

Patchy off to a flyer again.
5 players:

What a start!
And guess who is playing him in the happy place this week? 🙄

Likely to push 2500 with that start – go forth patchy 👍

    Holty01 · 24/07/2020 at 23:33

    Hells Bells Patch. Very nice start. Keep moving up mate

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 10:34

    Thats huge! 737 SC from those 5 players with the captain score still to come! 2500-2600 on the cards if Patch keeps firing like this. Awesome start.

ST1974 · 24/07/2020 at 22:49

Do we know how long Hill is out for? I was looking to finally trade out Starcevich and bring in Dodee, however, it looks like I will need trade out Hill or Brander.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/07/2020 at 22:55

    On Freo site

    “He demonstrated some tightness during testing at our injury clinic on Monday and he was sent for a scan, which showed a small strain in the adductor muscle

    “We have ruled Stephen out of this Monday’s game but we are hopeful of a quick recovery

      ndd · 24/07/2020 at 23:19

      Seems to be a problem at Freo with those injuries,come to think about it it's been there a while now .No Freo's for me

        ST1974 · 25/07/2020 at 07:32

        Thanks Trigga and ndd. Still undecided on whether to now trade Brander to Dodee to cover a donut and keep Pitt at R2 (or move D Cameron to R2 via Xerri DPP) or trade Pitt to Goldy or Gawn.
        Thoughts anyone.

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/07/2020 at 08:21

          If you've got the money bring in gawn for sure.

          You could always trade hill _ brandner to ling.

            ST1974 · 25/07/2020 at 10:34

            Thanks Trigga. I have the money to bring in Gawn, however, it won't leave me much cash for next week and I won't be able to bring in Dodee or Sicily even if I do a double downgrade and an upgrade.

fortywinks · 24/07/2020 at 23:20

do people think Day is a good pick even after his price rise?
– Didn't score great last week but had 19 touches with 8 marks. Disposal efficiency at 73% if he picks that up surely they are similar starts to someone like ridley who's scoring tons?

    Mitch is back · 24/07/2020 at 23:49

    Day is a good selection, but don’t expect Ridley numbers. Sicily takes the intercept marks, not Day.

Daniel · 25/07/2020 at 00:42

Should I take Pickett's 60 on my bench or risk it with Bennell instead?

    MagicGnome97 · 25/07/2020 at 02:49

    Exactly what I was about to comment. Thoughts people?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 25/07/2020 at 08:25

    I'd roll the dice on bennell but this advice comes with a warning.

    Do so at own risk, TRIGGA is not responsible for actions resulting from advice given as moves made by said party in 2020 usually end up <img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="💩" src=""><img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="💩" src=""&gt;

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 10:00

    Bennell scored 70 SC last week and seems to be improving with each game. Whilst 60 is PAR normally, on this occasion it might be worth punting on Bennell to produce an 80-90, or even more. We know what he is capable of. Good luck Daniel. TH

John · 25/07/2020 at 05:59

You’ve got to love karma, a mate was going the early crow in our cash league H2H after Macraes outing against the Suns, luckily for me Kelly steps up to put me back into the box seat!

Derek · 25/07/2020 at 07:12

I don’t want to speak too soon, but so far, after 2 games at least, SC has returned to ‘normal’.

Premiums are doing premium things, Ubers are being Ubers, Rookies are just being rookies, English isn’t scoring 200, Toby is annoying us and SHill is a late out.

Unfortunately we all know what the SC Gods are like, so I’m expecting anything could happen today, but so far I’m feeling like it might be a good scoring round.

Cliffy · 25/07/2020 at 09:32


Two routes I can go, I can either just about finish my Defense with going Starc – Ridley, or try to fix my weak Fwd line that is currently playing 3 rookies weekly by going Taylor – Petracca. What do we think guys?

    Cliffy · 25/07/2020 at 09:36

    For the record also, can also loop Starc and McPherson down back at D6 which is good at least if I don't finish my Defense this week.

      The Ranger · 25/07/2020 at 09:54

      I'd go Taylor – Petracca

      TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 09:55

      Petracca first mate. Your forward line is very vulnerable. Ridley in the next week or two. Good luck mate. TH

        Cliffy · 25/07/2020 at 10:11


        Always nice to hear from ya. Yeah, I think I'm gonna forego my original trade plans with going Petracca yeah, and thanks Ranger for replying as well. Now I just have to wait and hope Simpkin gets on the park and plays (and isn't a late out haha).

          TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 10:19

          Petracca also has a BE of only 59, and if he scores 130 SC which is very possible considering the form he is in, he will jump another $30K after this week. Ridley has a BE of 103 so his price will be similar next week. So on balance, and the fact your forward line is rookie central, Petracca is the perfect fit for your team structure. Hope Petracca goes huge for us this week!

            ndd · 25/07/2020 at 10:50

            and the dees too TH Petracca is close to the premier forward with martin and whitfield and is still within reach .good choice

Rick · 25/07/2020 at 11:14

Advice please: do I take Pickett's 60 or count on S. Simpson to beat it?

    KSinny · 25/07/2020 at 11:46

    Thinking the same thing

      Choppers · 25/07/2020 at 12:38

      a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush… Pickett

    MagicGnome97 · 25/07/2020 at 12:51

    hes only played 2 games but so far hes done well so i'd go for simpson to beat it. bennell on the other hand…harder to say.

Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 11:20

Hmmm, trying to do the maths of trading Pitt for Grundy or a rookie for Doedee.
If Doedee scores another 100, he will probably go up 40k. If Pitt scores a 70, he will probably go down 45k. Points I think will go to Pitt and Doedee vs Grundy. Grundy will hopefully be cheaper next week. But big risk is if Pitt pumps out another 30 and he loses a possible 60k. Less then 2 hours to go and still undecided

    Shake n bake · 25/07/2020 at 11:32

    I’m definitely punting Pitt. I think maybe for a week you can go O’Brien. Nice weather against Bell should go up about 30k this week. Just a left field suggestion

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 11:34

    Hi Holty. Its a very tight call. Doedee is playing against the bombers. The bombers are a team of midgets, so many short players. Doedee should be capable of taking plenty of marks against them, so a decent score is highly likely. On the other hand you have Pittonet up against Goldy. Ouch…..IMHO, I think the most urgent issue to fix is Pittonet. Get rid of him once and for all and grab Grundy. You then have peace of mind. Just my take Holty. Choose well! Cheers, TH

      holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 11:50

      Does the fact getting a 🍩 in my backline affect this in anyway?

        TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 11:57

        Damn Holty, overlooked that fact. Perhaps just get a coin and if its heads its Doedee and if it's tails its Grundy and a donut. Takes the stress out of it a bit. I have done that in the past. If its the wrong call, just blame the coin.

          Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 12:20

          Tjanks mate

            Shake n bake · 25/07/2020 at 12:32

            Your playing me in one league Holty. Still hope you make the right call

            Shake n bake · 25/07/2020 at 12:37

            By the way Simpkin playing

              Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 12:52

              Yep, I traded him out for Smith. My thinking behind it was now we have more trades, can save some money and Simpkins could be underdone. Smith got his ton so happy. Hopefully Simpkins gets through the game for his owners

              Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 16:12

              I’m happy I traded him now. 🥳 copped the tag and didn’t look 100%

        ndd · 25/07/2020 at 12:02

        The zero must be a factor .The more i think about it i would shore up the defense with Doedee

          Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 12:20

          Thanks everyone

    The Ranger · 25/07/2020 at 12:09

    I'd go for Doedee Holty, its easy to get caught up in the Pittonet discussions because of the position he plays in but I'm trying to just think of him as just another mid/rook that needs upgrading.
    If you ignore the name and the position then the question is just…do you upgrade a midpricer/rookie to an Uber or trade to avoid a donut in the backline?
    In that case you would normally trade to avoid the donut eh?

      Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 12:19

      Makes sense Ranger.

        Derek · 25/07/2020 at 12:28

        You can’t have a donut mate.

        I know Pitto was bad last week, but prior to that he was ok.

Peter · 25/07/2020 at 11:21

Help please..should i take Haynes 129 or risk it for the biscuit with Gawn

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 11:31

    It has been tough for rucks to score against Brisbane but Martin is a out so should make it easier. Gawn is in awesome form though but there is the old risk vs reward. If he scores a 150, you are only 21 points better off. He could just as easily break down in the first quarter and you lose 100. Although Gawn very rarely gets injured

    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 12:30

    129 isn’t quite enough

    There will be a lot of people with C on Gawn. I know I faced many last week and it was horrible

    Pman · 25/07/2020 at 12:58

    100% risk it with Gawn, he is averaging 150+ this year.

      Peter · 25/07/2020 at 14:28

      Thanks guys

Ja191 · 25/07/2020 at 11:30

Take the eggs 45 or risk it on starcevich what’s everyone reckon

    KSinny · 25/07/2020 at 11:46

    For a 45, Risk it!

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 11:47

    Risk it. You won’t lose much if he fails

    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 12:33

    Risk it. Starc is an ok player. He should do better than 45. I’m hoping anyway as I don’t have a choice this week with Hill out

    Rookies are making 50 their average lately

TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 12:04

I am culling either Brandon Starcevich or Curtis Taylor today. I have enough cash to go Starcevich to Dan Houston,(1) or Taylor to Jordan Ridley. (2) (DPP) I am leaning for option 2 as the Ridler does not have the upcoming bye. What would others consider doing? Cheers. TH

    TommyC99 · 25/07/2020 at 12:33

    Have the same dilemma TH! except tossing up between starc – Day or King/taylor – Bennell. I prefer bennells scoring potential over day's but im also pretty confident taylor outscores starc. If i go with King i dont field Taylor, which against the blues im not so sure about. Realisitically it comes down to Day/Taylor vs Bennell/starc. Which would you go with?

    As for your dilemma, i think if money isnt an issue its hard to go past ridley. We are literally back where we started with houston in terms of price, and unsure if he keeps this role? I think Ridley has the runs on the board plus the bye situation is a nice added bonus.

    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 12:40

    I’ve stayed away from Ridley, and it hurts me every week.

    Young fellas usually don’t keep their form going and eventually slow down as the season gets tougher. I thought he was a bit lucky to get a 90 last week.

    Houston is loving Rocky out of the team. I don’t expect Rocky to be out for much longer.

    Who else would you consider?

    I will be watching old man Hurn very close this week. They are back home and he had a 90+ last week without doing anything. WCE have an early bye, round 10.

JugHead · 25/07/2020 at 12:15

Dusty at 469k just got his second ton in a row and didnt quite hit his BE.
Starting to look like a good value trade up from fwd rookies in the next couple weeks IMO.

    JugHead · 25/07/2020 at 12:18

    For the 50% of us that don't have him already that is.

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 12:43

      Yep. His second half last night was very good. If tigers won he would have scored 140.

      I’ll be looking at him over next couple of weeks, especially when his bye is.

      I got Whitfield 2 weeks ago, will look nice to have Dusty as well

TommyC99 · 25/07/2020 at 12:50

Hey lads,

Last second decision. Basically deciding between day and bennell.

Trading out King or Starc. If i trade king out Taylor moves to the bench, and probably stays on the bench with Rankine to be fielded every week.

Taylor/Day or Starc/Bennell on field?

deano55 · 25/07/2020 at 12:58

trading in either simpson or georgiades today but can’t decide, what do you reckon community?

Pman · 25/07/2020 at 13:01

Taylor ahead of Day and Bennell ahead of Starc who isn't even playing this week or in th extended bench.

Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 13:37

Watching the game and seems Pittard is tagging Docherty. Sux for SC owners but as a Carlton supporter I love the role he is playing for the team. He seems to be dragging Pittard and other North players away from contests to allow easy possessions for SPS and Simpson. Go Blues

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 13:45

    How's Simpkin looking Holty? is he playing ok

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 14:15

      Simpkin getting Very close attention. Not many easy possessions

Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 13:38

Pittonet on 30 at quarter time, that'd be right! lol

    Connor · 25/07/2020 at 14:12

    32 at half

      Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 14:19

      I guess that'd also be right, probably 39 at the end

        Derek · 25/07/2020 at 15:34

        It started to rain and neither Pitto or Goldy had any influence.

        Unusual that ruckmen didn’t score well, has been the year of the rucks

    JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 22:57

    Only 53 at the end Russty, you did the right thing getting rid of him this week, I did the same, plus you you have an extra VC/C option in Gawn.

dusty · 25/07/2020 at 13:56

hey fellas,
Day or McPherson for cash generation?

Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 14:20

How is Pitt on less then Goldy. 22 to 10 in clearances would be a good indication that the hit outs to advantage must be in favour of Pitt

Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 14:51

Wtf, so Greene puts his studs up and gets suspended and Anderson does the same in a marking contest, kicks Cripps in the guts, paid a mark and North gets a goal. I just want consistency in the game but this year with holding the ball etc has been the most confusing of all.

    Connor · 25/07/2020 at 15:24

    Greene got clobbered by Vlastuin last night, got the free kick but probably won’t even get looked at. Meanwhile if Toby himself had done it he’d be looking at 3 weeks

      Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 15:49


    Billioux · 25/07/2020 at 19:37

    Clearly free kick and should be a week or 2. If it was Toby, he would get 6.

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 20:05

    The diff was probably the studs hit him in the guts Holternator and not the scone, maybe the 'Toby Greene studs up rule' only counts if there are stud marks in their noggen.

Pman · 25/07/2020 at 14:59

What the hell is going on with Simpkin with 28 points a 3 QTR time? Is he still injured or just playing crap?

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 15:14

    He's getting tagged by Curnow unfortunately mate.

      Pman · 25/07/2020 at 15:31


    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 15:31

    Curnow all over him

      Pman · 25/07/2020 at 15:32

      Wonder if he was 100% fit or was it just great work on Curnow's behalf?

        Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 15:40

        41 points is a bummer, you'd also be spewing if you have Goldy

        MagicGnome97 · 25/07/2020 at 15:40

        hes surely a bit underdone?

          Derek · 25/07/2020 at 16:07

          He gave away 4 frees and looked frustrated with the attention

ndd · 25/07/2020 at 15:43

Walsh has gone under the radar might look at him,had him all 2019

Connor · 25/07/2020 at 16:05

Simpkin 6 clangers REALLY hurt his already terrible score 🙁

    The Ranger · 25/07/2020 at 16:15

    Turns out I was loopholing Mahony when I should have been looping Simpkin!

Derek · 25/07/2020 at 16:10

Mills in the guts where he belongs

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 16:34

    I said a week ago when someone mentioned that he might get more mid time with their injuries that you wouldn’t want him there. He gets lost with the bigger bodies. Very lucky he has 6 tackles as he continues to be 2nd to the ball. I hope for his owners he gets put back to the backline where he does his damage.

      Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 16:49

      Although 60 points at half time is nice when he has only won 2 contested possessions.

        Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 16:53

        Correction, 65 after scaling.

JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 16:14

How does Taylor go from 48-50 I think it was, to 37 after scaling. I was relieved that he had passed Aarts 46 who I had the E on and could have replaced Taylor with by moving Brander on field

    Unsullied · 25/07/2020 at 16:30

    His score dropped 25% after scaling. SC must have run out of points.

    Keenbutclueless · 25/07/2020 at 16:47

    I am also baffled. Mahony went from 30 odd to 51 with scaling.

JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 16:54

OK I am no longer angry about what happened to Taylor's score, since I just looked at my opponents for this round and most have, one, two or all three of Macrae, Kelly and Sicily in their side and I have none, so this round is cactus for me.

    Kangaz · 25/07/2020 at 19:10

    My opponent has all 3 too to my none. It hurts

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 21:27

    You'd be angry if you had all the spuds I still have in my team John haha
    and also…I'm angry at you John, for not posting more in general, I have about 4 players scoring 35 points this week lol, you know you're in for a shit week when that happens, at least I have my health!..and the Saints on tonight…go Saints

      JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 22:43

      Hi Russty, I'm back, yes I haven't been on it as much this season, I only had Butler playing tonight and happy to see he posted a better score than last week after I decided to keep him, so wasn't looking at it as much, plus not many were posting anyway. My team seems to be about two weeks behind everybody else as far as where their teams are at.I didn't realize how many teams had Macrae until this week, even you have him Russty. And what great kicking by the saints, you aren't going to lose too many this year with that score.

StatsBloke · 25/07/2020 at 17:03

I think supercoach is rigged. It would be interesting to check into the relationships between winners and Murdoch.
I was interested in how Rucks were scoring so well in SC and expected Goldy to go 200+ today so I kept some stats and compared them to the scoring system for SC and the actual sc scores
Apparently SC scoring is actually random and/or rigged the score sytem published by HeraldSun seems to be as honest as their news coverage.

An effective kick =4pts effective hball= 1.5. I assume that you decipher which were deemed effective by multiplying by the de%
So today Goldy had 17pts from disposals @ 75% =12.75pts
Pitton had 24pts from disposals @ 72% =17.28pts

A Mark can vary from 2-8 pts depending on whether contested or from oppo kick
I gave Pitto 2pts for 100%ofmks and Goldy 2pts for 66% and 8pts for the rest = Goldy 12pts and Pitto 4pts
Rolling totals Goldy 24.75 Pitton 21.28

Free Kicks Goldy -4 and Pitton +8
Rolling score Goldy 20.75 Pitton 29.28
Goals and Behinds Goldy 1pt Pitton 0
Clearances which I assume are gathers from hitouts Goldy 6pts Pitton 12pts
Rolling score Goldy-27.75 – Pitton-41.28

Clangers are -4 Goldy had 3 = -12 Pitton had 0
Rolling score Goldy 15.75 – Pitton-41.28

Hitouts to Advantage are hard to determine But Blues had 39 clearances to Roos 30 Goldy had 41 HO to Pitton 27 I watched the game on Kayo and Pitton had 3 in final qtr that went straight to his team mates Goldy I didn't actually see a clear HO to advantage but I'm sure CD did.
Anyhow if those final qrtr hitout to Pitton were his only HO to adv his score would be 56.28 round down to 56. Goldy must have had 10 HO to Adv because CD gave him 69 = 53pts from hitouts

    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 18:19

    I watched the game, and both ruckmen were poor. Had very little influence in the game and their scores were fairly reflective of that.

    A HO to advantage has to be more than just a tap to your own team. It must be a clear result of the team mate having a disposal. I might have given Pitto one today.

    SC scoring has two elements. Disposals and possessions. A lot of people get them confused.

    Possession is how you Get the ball ( the more difficult, the more points) and a disposal (the better the disposal the more points) is how you get rid of the ball.

    They usually count for about 40% of the SC score each. Tackles and Hit Outs are the rest.

      LottoCoach · 26/07/2020 at 11:38

      Supercoach don't give points for possessions unless its a gather from a hitout. Disposals are what they give points for (supposedly) but it seems that this year champion data gives points for how neat your hair is and how your name is pronounced by commentators.

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 18:53

    It is strange but to be fair, AFL stats have Pitt only having 2 hit outs to advantage for the game which is amazing considering all the clearances they had. But as Derek said, the hit out must go straight to his player without it being fumbled etc.

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 19:51

      Not just straight to him, it must give them an ‘advantage’

        Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 20:12

        What a wishy washy bullshite judgement that is,from C.D, if the ruckman hits it to his own player cleanly, that is an advantage because they have the ball..FFS

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 20:02

    That's a lot of stats, you seem good at mafs, looks like we got ourselves a reader here, hyuk hyuk 😉

JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 17:54

Is Titch injured, I don't think he has scored in the last Q.

    KSinny · 25/07/2020 at 18:00

    He got -4 that quarter 💀

The Ranger · 25/07/2020 at 17:55

Macrae, J.Kelly, Greene, Lloyd, Sicily all gone big, Neale, Grundy and Gawn still to come…….gonna be some big scores.

TBone_23 · 25/07/2020 at 18:19

Very confused what has happened to the scores from the North v Carlton game. Fanfooty had Taylor on 60, Cripps on 86odd yet they end up much lower? Who stole all the points haha

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 18:45

    I’ve stopped trying to work it out this year. It’s been the most inconsistent and unrealistic scoring year I’ve seen. I’m just doing what Shake suggested and accept it for what it is and hope next year goes back to somewhat normal.

      Shake n bake · 25/07/2020 at 22:33

      Only way Holty another example 1 handball to georgiades in the last qtr he got 15 pts in the last. King had a big contested mark and goal got 11.

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 21:29

    Hey TBone steak, they probably over-awarded points and then exceeded 3300 and then had to retract points, because they're probably the janitors and window cleaners they hired when the C.D crew were made redundant when covid 19 hit.

Derek · 25/07/2020 at 18:23

I can’t believe I still have Pitto in my team. Had almost the exact money to trade Pitto to Gawn.

Didn’t realise game started at 1.05 today, was thinking the old 1.45pm start.

Was sort of happy at quarter time when Pitto was on 30, but the yelling at the TV in the second half was quite embarrassing

Will be watching the Melbourne game from behind the couch tomorrow

Only have myself to blame

    ndd · 25/07/2020 at 18:41

    I noticed that early and was looking for a new defender when you still had Pitto Rookie error and won't be your last Just make sure there's enough room behind the couch

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 18:55

    Yeah I held him too mate. His price will plummet now but at least I don’t have the 🍩 in the backline

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 19:46

      That’s rough mate. Saw your dilemma earlier and felt your pain.

    TOPHAWK1 · 25/07/2020 at 19:00

    Oh dear. This was the week Derek. Pitto had to go. I think there are three trades next week so possible two downgrades and then get Gawn. It will still hurt, but these things do happen in this SC caper. TH

      Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 19:27

      Think only 2 mate. No byes next week

        JEL · 27/07/2020 at 10:06

        3 trades Rd9 – 12
        Best 18 score in bye weeks.

    Holty01 · 25/07/2020 at 19:03

    Do you have him onfield or the E on him? Since you’re doing so well this year, maybe if you have that R3 in the rucks that you could swing forward, could you do a sneaky trade to bring in a ROB or someone similar this week?

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 19:45

      Conroy already played

    Pman · 25/07/2020 at 19:11

    We've all been there Derek! Don't mean to rub it in your face but trading Shittonet to Gawn was just about my most satisfying trade of the year! 😉

      Derek · 25/07/2020 at 19:43

      I had done the trade earlier in week. It felt really good and comfy.

      I reversed it and usually hold off in case there is late out etc.

      I was taking the dog for a walk and got home to see it had just started. I ran to my phone to do trade but it said ‘uh oh’

      I have $400k doing nothing now.

      Im a desperate man and could do anything now, like trade Hill to Ryan or Walters

        Pman · 25/07/2020 at 19:58

        Walters is probably a good trade but as long as it still leaves you enough cash to get Max next week who will be circa $780K+

          Derek · 25/07/2020 at 22:11

          It’s very annoying. Pitto will only be $380k next week

    Swans2012 · 26/07/2020 at 11:35

    At least you didn’t trade pitto to goldy like I did 😬☹️🔫

      Derek · 26/07/2020 at 12:51

      I can see why you would have. Goldy having a great year and will seriously challenge Grundy for #2 ruck

      Neither tuck scored well which is very unusual this year

        Swans2012 · 26/07/2020 at 13:29

        I had a vision of goldy 160+ against pitto, anyway hopefully he comes good

    The Jinx · 26/07/2020 at 13:04

    I'm doing the same Derek, I'll be turning on the tv every 10mins and off again.
    Finally got rid of Ceglar, but still don't have Gawn. Running with Cameron for now, may SCgods help me this week.

    Could've picked up Gawn, with the Byes coming up soon I was thinking of picking him then. Hoping he'll drop a bit in price, but that's wishful thinking and most likely wont happen.

      Derek · 26/07/2020 at 16:08

      Cameron might be the best move you have made.

      50 at quarter time

        The Jinx · 26/07/2020 at 16:32

        Wasn't sure if I should reply to this comment, don't to Jinx myself.

        Had Cameron from start with Ceglar, Ceglar got the chopped this week. Took the gamble on running Cameron as my R2 and opted not to take Gawn. More focused on having warm bodies on the bench.

        Hoping Cameron keeps scoring, not stuck on 50points.

Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 19:57

Rozee's half way to his weekly score of 34, now that I've written this, he'll probably score 125.

Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 21:39

Well this is pretty freakin boring….didn't realise the whole Jock Reynolds member population went to bed at 8 o'clock at night on a saturday night lol

    Nuggety · 25/07/2020 at 21:50

    Been glued to the tv waiting for Rozee to show me why I didn't boot him 4 weeks ago… what a balls up!

      Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 21:53

      Oh nuggety, you should've at least booted him last week, I looked up spud in the Dictionary and his picture came up, I made a joke earlier about him reaching 34 this week..he scored 39 so super-sorry about that but, players like you and I may as well give up cause we don't have a clue about reality…I was glued to the tv waiting for someone who didn't go to bed at 8pm to answer but it never happened.
      Go the Saints…from here on in or some such thing.

        JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 22:46

        I said the Saints were looking good last week Russty, glad they backed me up.

        TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 10:46

        Hey Russty, bet you are glad you punted Rozee last week. The bloke is an absolute supa spud alright. Brought in Houston this week and his score was pushed down due to Port losing, giving away a couple of stupid free kicks and a couple of clangers. He could have easily tonned up last night. He is hard and tough, and hope he will be a good servant in my side for the rest of the year. Who did you bring in this week?TH

      JohnDJ59 · 25/07/2020 at 22:45

      I got rid of him in round 5 and that was a week to late.

        TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 10:55

        Gotta know when to hold em and when to fold em John. I got rid of Pittonet for Gawn 3 weeks ago. That was my season saving moment. Gawn went 153 (C) and then 185 last week. Pittonet went 75, 32, and 53 last night. That is 160 SC in 3 weeks. If Gawn goes 160 SC as captain today, it means 811 SC for Gawn over that same period. (651 more points then Pitt). Whether Gawn goes huge or not today, trading out plumb lambs and under performing players is cruicial in this game called Supercoach. Cheers. TH

    Derek · 25/07/2020 at 22:07

    Saints vs Port wasn’t on my list of things to do tonight

      Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 22:19

      You don't know what you missed Derek, the points allocated to Ruckmen were unsurpassed, 63 thousand points to Ruckmen, a few to the rest…and number 7 on the ladder knocked number 1 off their perch.

        ndd · 25/07/2020 at 22:38

        a pretty ordinary game though Russty

        Derek · 26/07/2020 at 00:19

        Why didn’t Goldy and Pitto get points today. Every other ruck does

          TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 11:00

          They probably nullified each other Derek. No tap outs to advantage. Just taps to opposition players, and taps that were sharked by oppo players which earn a ruckman minus points. They both had bugger all pozzies too, end result two louzy scores. TH

        Derek · 26/07/2020 at 00:20

        I only had one player. Houston, and it doesn’t look like he had much of a night

Pman · 25/07/2020 at 22:04

Putting the VC on Steele didn't prove to be the Shark move I hoped it to be. Hopefully my new boom recruit Big Maxy goes beserk tomorrow!

    Russty_ · 25/07/2020 at 22:19

    I tried the same Pman, Max will deliver for us.

    silversovereign · 26/07/2020 at 09:18

    In maxy we trust, hopefully dodged a bullet by going Maxy over goldy. Time will tell.

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 10:39

    Maxxxxxxxx Gaaaaawwwwwnnnnnnnn……………..LOL He is the man today. He is up against the might of Oscar Mc Inerney and Archie Smith. LOL He will absolutely destroy them. The only way Maxy will flop today is if he fell out of the wrong side of the bed this morning. I am going Grundy into Gawn today. Trent Rivers the patsy that can make it happen. Cheers Pman. TH

Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 00:56

Just got home to see tonight’s scores. How did Georgiades get 86 from 7 touches? He must have set up scores with every touch I’m assuming?

    MagicGnome97 · 26/07/2020 at 01:16

    no idea. he went from 2 to 57 in like a quarter. 2nd quarter to be exact.

    silversovereign · 26/07/2020 at 09:13

    Took a few big contested grabs, kicked long and used it well.

    ndd · 26/07/2020 at 09:49

    Always looked dangerous Hotly Great kick and contested mark . Can't see him being dumped

      Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 10:31

      Cool. Might have to try sneak him into the team. Which might mean holding Pittonet for another week. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 10:33

    Georgiades was excellent. Some big contested marks, long penetrating kicks, and a classy goal. Glad I held him, but sad I had him on the bench. Definately a rook to consider getting if you don't already have him. Cheers Holt. TH

      Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 10:55


      ndd · 26/07/2020 at 12:43

      I also benched him TH and though you have to wonder about the system he looked good . Shake is correct,next week it might be my turn to cop a good score with poor numbers. I am tipping Georgiadis to be a good regular player next year

SuperLottoCoach · 26/07/2020 at 11:40

The supercoach scoring system is a farce.
There have been some ridiculous scores this year georgiades last night is a perfect example. It doesn't matter how big a mark was or how long a kick was. a screamer contested mark should score the same as any other contested mark and an effective kick should score the same regardless of how far it went.
The scoring system is a joke and if you had to pay a fee to enter it it would be closed down by the permits mob. Way too many points given to players for no logical reason maybe if 1 of MG's 4 kicks had have been the winning goal he could have nudged 50 but 86 for 4kicks and 3hbals that had zero impact on the outcome of the game in a losing team is ridiculous.
By Comparrison Butler had 9 kicks, 6 tackles and 2 goals in a winning team but only scored 87. Nobody could seriously suggest that MG had as much influence on the game as Butler.
I'd like to see some transparency in the scoring system because to me seems to be based on the personal opinion of fools who have never played footy

    Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 12:32

    I did say earlier 1 handball in the last qtr finished 15 pts higher than his 3rd qtr score. King took a contested pack mark with just under 3 min left in the game and kicked the goal finished with 11 pts more than his 3qtr score. I won’t comment on her much anymore. But I’ll definitely put up with it and move on 🙁😊

    Tofaco · 27/07/2020 at 12:35

    Transparency is the key word!

    There shouldn't be anything to hide so why not let us see how they cook up the numbers?

    another thought is whether you can view umpire statistics on champion data? as a Power fan I gave up on Sat night and joined my Saints mate in barracking for ump #12, he clearly had the most impact on the game!

TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 13:50

Rielly O'Brien -4 SC in the second quarter. WTF! Hope Champion data have not been tinkering with the scoring algorithms this week. Ruckmen are dropping steaming turds all over the place this week.

    ndd · 26/07/2020 at 13:55

    Bellchambers just having a day out TH

    Kat · 26/07/2020 at 14:34

    Ryder and Marshall were Ok last night

Pman · 26/07/2020 at 14:15

Devon Smith continuing to stink it up like has all year with a lousy 17 points at half time. He needs to go ASAP…

    The Jinx · 26/07/2020 at 14:37

    agree after this weekend he has to go. Can't stand it anymore longer seeing him stinking it week in week out.

      Pman · 26/07/2020 at 14:59

      He has been a massive let down this year.

Derek · 26/07/2020 at 14:41

Sorry fellas. Got Doedee in this week

    Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 14:46

    Me too. Maybe I should have accepted the donut and just grabbed Grundy

      Derek · 26/07/2020 at 15:31

      Cant believe that. Was getting Ryan, but did my maths and to make certain I had enough cash to get Gawn next week decided Doedee was the cheaper option.

      Watch Gawn and Ryan go crazy now

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 15:37

    Derek… had to be Pittonet to Gawn this week. I screwed up as well. Went Houston over Ridley. Bad mistake. Another 115 odd by the Ridler today. Houston only managed 71. To make matters worse, I traded Starcevich instead of Taylor. Had I traded Taylor, I would have missed his 37SC and would have forced Georgiades on the field up forward. Instead I left his 86 SC on the bench. Bugger. I started Doedee in round 2 so at least he has made me some cash and has been OK. Time to lick my wounds.

      Derek · 26/07/2020 at 16:12

      I traded Starcevich to Doedee.

      I should have traded SHill. He might be out a while.

      If I kept Starcevich, I could have at least had a free loopholed with Doedee.

      My whole round stuffed by forgetting bring Gawn in

        The Jinx · 26/07/2020 at 16:54

        I was thinking the same trades, thought Starcevic will come in handy to loop Coffield. Just need Starcevic to better Coffields 52points, my plan was to keep Coffield another week.

        Smith the turd will now go along with Coffield for Gawn and a Rook. Yes! I have been saying it for many weeks now to get Gawn.

        Making notes to myself to bring Gawn soon SC is open. And never open my team again until the 1st game of Rnd 9.

G.C. · 26/07/2020 at 15:00

S. Hill, Egg-Smith, Cripps, Simpkin, Docherty, Dev Smith and now Doedee all causing chaos in my side this week. When it rains it pours. What a disappointing weekend.

TBone_23 · 26/07/2020 at 15:03

Dev Smith has gotta go this week, not looking interested and nowhere near it. Basically a way overpriced rookie at this point

    Pman · 26/07/2020 at 15:21

    I will be turning him into another Smith, of the Bailey variety!

    Derek · 26/07/2020 at 15:32

    He only had 4 tackles is because he isn’t in the guts

    Kat · 26/07/2020 at 16:09

    I'd love to get rid of him but am going to prioritise upgrading rookies at the moment. He at least usually gets to 50, which not all my rookies seem to be able to do and at least I know he shouldn't get dropped and will be a warm body throughout these byes (of which he doesn't have one) Hopefully I have enough trades left later on to upgrade him.

    JugHead · 26/07/2020 at 16:17

    Couldn't agree more. Has only been getting to 70 ish points the last few weeks on junk time stats and finally dropped an absolute turd score.
    Don't know if he is carrying an injury or not, but he can't be far off getting dropped.

    redherringfc · 26/07/2020 at 17:03

    He was only 340k at the start. He started with a couple of 105’s, then a heap of 70’s. Finally a 49.

    He’s got a couple of decent scores for us and gone up a little bit.

    I agree that he doesn’t look interested and he has to go, but I’m pretty sure he’s not the worst selection you’ve made this year.

      MagicGnome97 · 26/07/2020 at 17:26

      after his price drop this week he will end up a pretty shitty selection. he'll be only 25k more than he started at after this week. and after hitting 410k at one point…ffs i would've traded him 3-4 weeks ago if not for fyfe, howe, sturt, rowell all getting injured.

TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 15:30

Devon Smith was absolutely pathetic today. I knew I should have punted the bloke weeks ago. I am done with him. Then I have to get rid of Tom Doedee who I started in round 2. Smith to raise some cash (What is left) and then cash in Doedee. Grab a bubble rook and then up to an uber premo like Lloyd or Neale. Welcome. TH

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 16:25

    Didn't see the Bombers game mate but how bad is Doedee's injury?…I have him and Hill to deal with now.

      TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 16:37

      It looks like weeks Russty. His hamstring was all iced up. Dint look good.

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 16:40

        Crapola!…he was going so well too this season, 2 more replacements needed for me instead of improving my side, bit of a grind this year, hope things are back to normal next season.

Keenbutclueless · 26/07/2020 at 15:34

Gee, choosing Ling over McPherson to save a few dollars has cost a few points. To rub salt into the wound, Ling may get dropped next week! Always a risk taking a rookie without having a look at them.

    Bells · 26/07/2020 at 17:04

    Ling will stick around I reckon. Looked ok for a first gamer. Swans need to see what he's got. Bench $$ to be made there.

GJS · 26/07/2020 at 16:05

Hate to PANIC early, though Grundy on 8 at quarter time!!!!!!!

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 16:26

    Yeah wtf?! he injured or something?

    JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 16:33

    Make that 10 nearing half time.

      The Lost Boys · 26/07/2020 at 16:36

      Very glad I have the V on Grundy only, and the C on Gawn. Can't imagine both having terrible games!

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 16:41

        I'm playing someone with the C on Grundy this week, that might be the only league game I win lol

          JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 16:41

          9 at HT. What the Hell.

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 16:39

    10 SC at half time. Boy ooooh boy. This is ugly.

    JugHead · 26/07/2020 at 16:41

    10 at half time. OK to panic now. And the irony of Cameron being on 62…..those SC gods have a sense of humour.

    Bells · 26/07/2020 at 17:05

    It's ok, he got another 2 in the next quarter.
    I brought him in this week.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 17:55

    He could get to 60 with his second half effort, maybe 65 with scaling lol

      JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 17:59

      With the rucks spudding it this round I'm starting to feel nervous about Max for the first time this season, wondering if I should switch to Neale.

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 18:12

        Yeah tough call John, I'm sticking with Maxy, but my season's buggered anyway, be lucky to crack 1900 this week.

          JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 18:19

          I kept it on Max, after last weeks last minute decision to take the C off Max and have Grundy's 144 VC as my score, I decided to stick with my original plan. I just hope Max scores more than Neale.

The Ranger · 26/07/2020 at 16:33

Smith – JJK on Tuesday then

M.Malthouse · 26/07/2020 at 16:41

That Buckley is a great coach. Grundy getting pantsed by every eagle over 180cm and Cameron doing the opposite so he pulls cameron away from play and lets Grundy spud it up for another quarter

    The Ranger · 26/07/2020 at 16:46

    Always good to hear from you Mick. Say hi to Noah for me.

      M.Malthouse · 26/07/2020 at 16:52

      I'll show everyone just how great I am when I take over the Saints next year

        gator59 · 26/07/2020 at 17:19

        Like F$%k, We don;t need that heap of camel shit at our club

          M.Malthouse · 26/07/2020 at 17:32

          You know you need me gator if Ratten can get your mob this far imagine what I can do. I totally rejuvenated carlton after Ratten

          ndd · 26/07/2020 at 17:44

          watch the language gat just because you win a game mick wouldn't go there anyway he wants a flag

E.McGuire · 26/07/2020 at 17:04

We have been over this Mick. Bucks can do no wrong, and its his job for life.
Or until Clarko becomes available……..

TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 17:04

I know what song Grundy was listening to during the prematch warm ups……

"I am scatman!! Bee ba da bop ba da bop bee ba ba bop scoby scoby do!!" LOL

AuroraBorealis?! · 26/07/2020 at 17:13

Well, that's about all i can stomach of this game. Pressure and midfield are absolutely f*cking woeful

M.Malthouse · 26/07/2020 at 17:30

Hard to understand how the scoring works in SC. NicNat gave grundy a lesson absolutely dominated all over the ground half a dozen sublime taps straight to eagles players Grundy did nuthin except kick one ootf but Grundy scores 34 nic nat 20 wtf?

Kangaz · 26/07/2020 at 17:32

Why is there no emergencies in Draft. I have pendlebry on ground and Josh Kelly (196) on bench. Ruins my week

    Derek · 26/07/2020 at 17:48

    Usually you get the lowest score from your bench. Zeros not included.

    To get Jellys score you need all your other bench players not playing this week

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 17:49

    You get one player on the bench's score kangaz…for any position missing…if it's more than one on the bench you get the lower score.

      Kangaz · 26/07/2020 at 20:44

      Ok thanks. Just checked and yeah got eberts score added. To win my draft game its Bradshaw vs Stanley now. Highest of those wins

        Kangaz · 26/07/2020 at 20:45

        Brayshaw* Dàmn spellcheck

    Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 19:18

    I got in Kennedy and wacked him on the pine.

Dan · 26/07/2020 at 17:33

Me too, just switched it off. Agreed, we’ve been beaten through the midfield which has cost us all over the ground.

Tommy · 26/07/2020 at 17:35

Well grundy as vc hasnt worked…

Captain neale or danger? Got a funny feeling danger goes big this week.

    Pman · 26/07/2020 at 17:56

    Danger has been in great form last 3 weeks whereas Neale has dropped off a bit. Danger for C.

      Tommy · 26/07/2020 at 19:15

      Neale going well atm. Can only hope my gut feel on danger is right!

Tommo · 26/07/2020 at 17:55

With the eagles back in Perth and a nice score today in a game they dominated after quarter time, is Shannon Hurn an option? Has been quite disappointing thus far this year but at $424k seems like a great option to me


    GJS · 26/07/2020 at 18:02

    Was thinking the same thing- looking for value WCE players since they will probably dominate playing in front of their own crowds now

      The Lost Boys · 26/07/2020 at 18:13

      Can we wait to pick up Hurn until after R10 bye though?

        Derek · 26/07/2020 at 18:33

        Yep. Round 11.

TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 18:01

Doedee to Hurn next week. Straight switch. Hurn has a BE of 120 going into today. Perfect.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 18:14

    Yeah TH, think that'll be a popular trade next week.

    Shake n bake · 27/07/2020 at 12:00

    Rd 10 bye wait.

Aaaarrrrghh! · 26/07/2020 at 18:03

I got Grundy this week because I didn't think that he'd get much cheaper. Just wasted 50k. I got maynard a couple of weeks ago and he's gone backwards every week since. Bloody collingwood I should never believe the hype

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 18:22

    Still both good picks, don't worry they'll be right.

Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 18:08

Gee, maybe going Doedee instead of Grundy isn’t as bad as first thought

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 18:14

    Haha, well Holty, at least the big bird isn't injured like Doedee, he'll probs bang out a 150 next week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 26/07/2020 at 19:18

    Thats right Holty. Doedee can be replaced without losing any cash. (BE 29) Grundy price will drop after today, but he is a season keeper. He got knocked around by Nic Nat but will play better against Freo next week. Doedee to Hurn for example will actually earn you 5K if you made that switch. My cattle in Gawn (C) , Mc Cluggage, Petracca, are scoring nicely atm. Bennell can pull his finger out in the second half. Cheers. TH

Aaaarrrrghh! · 26/07/2020 at 19:28

Why did Paddy Ryder miss rounds 4,5,6?
DPP and should only be 450k or thereabouts and 3 of his next 4 are against teams without rucks.
He has a 2 game ave of 135

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 19:41

    Round 4 he was "managed", rounds 5 and 6 I suspect he was left out so Marshall could ruck solo, just not sure if he stays in there and plays every game.

      ndd · 26/07/2020 at 20:05

      Is he the no.1 ruck Russty ?

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 20:50

        Nah mate Marshall is for sure, Paddy is there for his swansong, playing fwd and pinch hitting in the ruck.

Holty01 · 26/07/2020 at 20:05

Ummmm, so the commentators are saying Melbourne are getting well beaten at the clearances and not taking advantage of Gawns dominance. Then a few seconds later show the stats to 3/4 time for hit outs to advantage. Brisbane 1 vs Gawn 15. Id say that ain’t to bad.

    Derek · 26/07/2020 at 20:33

    It ended 20 HOA to 2

    That’s 100pts for Gawn just there

      ndd · 26/07/2020 at 20:40

      That's a big difference

      Holty01 · 27/07/2020 at 09:10

      It’s probably a good indication that Melbourne’s midfield is Very average. If Max doesn’t tap it down his teammates throats, they lose most of the 50/50 balls.

TelescopicCox · 26/07/2020 at 20:18

Are Petracca and Oliver essential? Took Treloar this week for Fyfe instead of the Dees boys given my Collingwood bias. I’ll be eying off Oliver and Petracca in the coming weeks

    MagicGnome97 · 26/07/2020 at 21:19

    Petracca definitely. Oliver a good option but far from essential. Neale is the only truly essential mid so far. Fyfe up until he got injured. Macrae and Treloar seem likely too, I wouldn't be too worried about Treloar's score this week. With no Pendles and Sidey and Grundy having a poor first half it was a very tough game for him.

Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 20:38

Only thing I’ve done alright was to bring in Gawn and Oliver this week.

    Derek · 26/07/2020 at 20:47

    You will sleep well tonight.

    Gee Oliver was good.

    I thought most teams would have him, but only 3 out of 10 of my opponents have him.

    Sort of makes up for nearly everyone else having Gawn.

    But to have them both, you are feeling good mate

      Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 20:56

      Preparing for the byes. My fwd line Simpkin Wingard Smith killing me.

      JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 20:58

      I've started with Clarry the last three years, went Viney instead this season and I have a one player one team policy for each line. I might have to rethink that.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 20:58

    There's a few valuable points there Shake, very timely choices.

      Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 21:13

      Have got in 4 rookies last 2 weeks. I think l need as much players on the pine playing. So this week got in Gawn and Oliver and hopeful of another 2 premos next week but won’t be from the 4 teams with a bye rd 10

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 22:10

        Good strategy Shake, you sacrificed potential points the last 2 weeks for the security of warm bodies going fwd and this week went for the trades you really wanted to do, and at the right time as it turns out.
        So maybe it's the universe repaying you for your patience, or some such hippy dippy doo dah crap lol

    The Jinx · 26/07/2020 at 21:24

    Yup! Those two will got you over the line this week mate. I'm hoping Danger gets tagged tomorrow, and scores under 88 points for me to win against you.

    Close one though. Gawn is killing me each week.

      Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 21:36

      I’m relying Danger to get me home in a few leagues in looks like Jinx!

      Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 22:11

      From memory Jinxsy, the only one who tags Danger when they're playing Freo is Fyfe, Danger V Fyfe…mega-boss battle!
      Not happening this time though so maybe Danger scores at will.

Pranav · 26/07/2020 at 20:46

4 scores over 150 this week and I’m relying on danger for my C this week just hoping for a 120+

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2020 at 20:48

Patchy 4 demons tonight.

Gawn (c)

Oh and one lion who had a reasonable score.

Gotta go cloze to highest score this rd.

    Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 20:54

    Hey Trigs, haven't seen Patchy commenting around here for months, wondering if he's still even involved?

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2020 at 21:02

      Do u reckon he has brought in a pinch hitter? 🤣 maybe the ol' fox JR himself. 🙊

        Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 21:07

        Very possibly, heard Jock was living in the Himalayas in a place called Shangri-la where he's waited on hand and foot by extremely hot hand maidens who never age.

          Browncow · 27/07/2020 at 00:03

          That makes sense Russty! Where else would Crouching Tiger hang out.

      JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 21:31

      He's still on twitter.

    Holty01 · 27/07/2020 at 09:15

    What’s Patch’s team name mate?

      hedski · 27/07/2020 at 09:18

      Patch's Potatoes

      Holty01 · 27/07/2020 at 09:24

      Ignore that, found it

Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 20:53

Well I had Gawn C in Classic, Neale and Oliver C's in Draft so at least draft's going ok for me this year, Classic is a huge clusterfk LOL
I'll be on the bottom of the ladder in 10 leagues the way I'm going, I'll look fwd to bouncing back next season.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/07/2020 at 20:59

    Don't know how/When it went so wrong in classic? I think it was sooo much time between rd 1 and 2. All the pre season planning went out the window with 5 trades rd 2.

    I reckon my Draft score wont be too different to my classic score. 🤣

    Lovin' having tracca, gawn and oliver in draft every week. Wish i.had the same in classic. Huge boost after each demon game. Bench is cotchin, sidebum, meatball and Williams. 🙄

      Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 21:05

      Yeah Trig, I think it was injuries and sideways trading that brought me undone, I'm still stuck with a bunch of spud scoring rookies I can't seem to get rid of…oh well.

    ndd · 26/07/2020 at 21:03

    It's not a sprint though , more a marathon otherwise after your round 1 we could call you Bolty

      Russty_ · 26/07/2020 at 21:04

      More like a 6 km cross country this time Neil…haha, bad luck with the close loss today mate.

      Shake n bake · 26/07/2020 at 21:15

      Was hoping the Dees got up today Neil.

        ndd · 26/07/2020 at 21:34

        probably an inch in it with that mark at the end. Deemed over the line plus a 50 .real tough but a great effort still Thinking of one more dee to join Gawn Tracca Clarry Harley and rivers . Viney is ripe good luck fellas and Shake as I said all week Grundy just didn't look right but Cameron was good Go DEES

    JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 21:15

    I'm in a close one with Derek in Up There Cazaly, they have him winning by a point.

      Derek · 26/07/2020 at 23:08

      Oliver has kept me in it, but it will come down to my C Dangerfield to get me over the line. I think he will need to go 150+ for me to have a chance

        JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 00:39

        I usually start with Clarry, started with him the last 3 yrs, went with Viney this year. I might have to go against my one player, one team, one line rule.

          Derek · 27/07/2020 at 00:55

          I started Oliver, but when the match was cancelled I quickly got Fyfe because I was worried I’d have a donut, before it was decided to be best 18.

          Got him back last week with Fyfe out

          He is a bit of a POD

          Gawn had 20 HOA tonight, I’m thinking 10 were straight to Oliver while Viney and Pettraca held their opponents away

          He is almost a must have without a bye.

            JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 02:21

            I'm seriously thinking of getting him in, then I will have all the on ball Dees in my team. It will look odd though having two players from one team on a line.

MagicGnome97 · 26/07/2020 at 21:12

What a flip floppy weekend.

Macrae, Gawn (C), Neale, Haynes, Whitfield, Martin, Ridley all very good.

Simpkin, Doedee, Grundy, Docherty, Cripps, Devon Smith all absolutely shocking and killing my overall score dead.

Curtis Taylor and Harley Bennell too with really poor scores. And I had Pickett on the bench cos I thought Bennell could beat his 60 but no. Georgiades there too!

Very happy I brought in Gawn this week. A little disappointed in the other guy I brought in Greenwood's 97 considering the alternative was Petracca and he did much better – and the cheaper alternative was Bailey Smith.

Looks like Doedee and Devon Smith have to go. Probably Noble as well. Premo options are Lloyd, Bailey Smith, Walters and Petracca really. I need Simpson to score 50 tomorrow to hit 2000 this week.

Hopefully Simpkin is all good again next week.

Joe_T · 26/07/2020 at 21:24

Any big scores on the cards? I'm done for the weekend on 2391, my highest score so far in what has been a disappointing season for my supercoach team.

    Pman · 26/07/2020 at 22:23

    That will be a very good score I think. I'm in 8 leagues and so far only a 2439 (completed 22) beats your score with no one else coming close on track to beat it. I'm struggling to get to 2100 in what has also been a disappointing season!

      MagicGnome97 · 26/07/2020 at 22:50

      Yeah a lot of people have Simpkin, Curtis Taylor, Docherty, Cripps and Grundy. And to a lesser extent Doedee and Devon Smith.

        David C · 27/07/2020 at 09:10

        The only one of those that I don't have is Doedee. Strange week with those guys spudding it up plus a few going large to cancel them out. Like pman I am struggling to get to 2100. There will be some big scores and some shockers this week.

          MagicGnome97 · 28/07/2020 at 01:28

          sucks if you're like me and dont have many going large. gawn, neale and macrae and thats it. and gawn and neale are somewhat expected. people with josh kelly, lloyd (expect an 110 but not what he got this weekend), sicily, toby greene, oliver, them lot, i wish i had even a single one of them.

          Doedee &gt; Lloyd this week.

          Devon Smith to Petracca too, and to afford all this, Max King &gt; Close. 40k spare at the end 🙂

      Joe_T · 28/07/2020 at 00:03

      Ended up being a round rank of 480ish, very happy with that! and a big jump in overall rankings too

    JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2020 at 11:14

    Not a big score, 2,177 but good enough to win 9/10 games.

Derek · 26/07/2020 at 23:14

Going to watch the cats from behind the couch tomorrow.

Needed a unique C to win me some leagues this week, all my opponents had either Neale or Gawn as C. I only had Neale and had C on him, but switched it to Dangerfield. I did think about Oliver but thought melb might get smashed.

Not a big fan of Danger, but I’ll either love or hate him tomorrow

    Derek · 26/07/2020 at 23:29

    If he scores less than 120, I’m pretty much lost all my leagues. If he can score over 143 I will win 6. In 2 others he needs to out score Brayshaw by 72.

      JohnDJ59 · 26/07/2020 at 23:44

      We are in a close one Derek, my Brayshaw and 160pts against your Capt Danger and 31 pts. So 120 by Danger and you probably have me.

        derek · 27/07/2020 at 00:30

        Danger is going to make or break my leagues

        Derek · 27/07/2020 at 00:50

        It’s a big match. Winner will be in top 4, loser back in the pack.

          JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 13:14

          Yes it's pretty tight in there, all the way down to 13th place.

    Shake n bake · 27/07/2020 at 09:10

    Cmon Danger!!!

      JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 13:20

      I'm up against you in Holy Grail Shake and Clarry has certainly got you over the line, oh and Kelly, you are my only certain loss this round.

Browncow · 26/07/2020 at 23:59

Too close to call that one gents! Danger was not on song over here last year but still very capable of punching out a 60 point quarter. Well done on your rank Derek which I saw on the JR list today.

AuroraBorealis?! · 27/07/2020 at 12:54

Does Doedee's hamstring look bad? He's probably a must trade considering the condensed fixtures.

    ndd · 27/07/2020 at 21:17

    low grade possibly miss one

JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 21:50

Go Brayshaw #brayshawbreakout.

Connor · 27/07/2020 at 22:29

The Brayshaw >> Smith trade gets worse and worse every week Fyfe is out

    JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 22:46

    Why did you trade Brayshaw out and when.

      Connor · 27/07/2020 at 23:17

      After round 1 because he got no TOG% and I didn’t like the role I saw

        JohnDJ59 · 27/07/2020 at 23:30

        That's far enough, his 66 wasn't the best and like you said his TOG was pretty low. And please tell me you traded to B.Smith and not D.Smith.

Bells · 27/07/2020 at 22:44

Unlikely league win for me as #Brayshawbreakout and Serong combine for 244 points to nab me the win by 4.
A very respectable 2299 considering all the spuds I had onfield this week.

The Jinx · 27/07/2020 at 23:01

Well I be damn!!! I asked for Danger to score today 88 below and he got 88sc point. Shane and The Jinx drew at 2140 points.

    The Jinx · 27/07/2020 at 23:03

    Demmit autocorrect its Shake not Shane.

    Nice game mate. That Gawn pick up was a good move for ya this week.

    JohnDJ59 · 28/07/2020 at 00:15

    Yes I was up against Shake as well, thanks to Danger getting a below av score, what I thought would be a loss turned into a 37pt win.

Ally B. · 29/07/2020 at 07:37

I'm still learning this game! <img src="; height="1" width="1">
