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?

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

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

ELIMINATED

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.

IMMUNITY

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

nice one derek

hedski

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

Derek

Simpkin looks like he will play after getting through training

MagicGnome97

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_

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

Derek

King to either; Bennell, Simpson or Mayes?

Will probably go onfield instead of taking Budarick!s 59

Keenbutclueless

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

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

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

Lakey

or McPherson?

ndd

reckon day looks ok

Ja191

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

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

derek

why doesn't that surprise me

KSinny

Well there's a 0 for me 😪

Rivo

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

Hill out. Starcevich survives again!

Funkhouser

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

Cliffy

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

Take rankine

Cliffy

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

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

Does anyone know when final teams are announced for Monday?

Lekdog

Will be tomorrow

DEESNUTSRBIG

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

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

We are live answering your questions here: https://www.twitch.tv/lekdoggames

Lach

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

TommyC99

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

Would any of the ins be on field Tommy?

If not I’d go Stach to Day

TommyC99

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

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

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

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

McPherson or Day – to replace hill?

Trent

McPherson

Trent

V on Coniglio or Boak

John

Trade Starcevich to Sicily

OR

Trade Taylor to Petracca

JugHead

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

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

Holty01

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

ndd

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

Holty01

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

ndd

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

Finnius

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

Patchy off to a flyer again.
5 players:
Macrae
Daniel
Kelly
Hayes
Whitfield

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

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

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

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

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

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

You could always trade hill _ brandner to ling.

ST1974

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

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

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

Daniel

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

MagicGnome97

Exactly what I was about to comment. Thoughts people?

TRIGGA_HAPPY

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="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f4a9.svg"><img draggable="false" role="img" class="emoji" alt="💩" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/12.0.0-1/svg/1f4a9.svg"&gt;

TOPHAWK1

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

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

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

Hey,

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

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

I'd go Taylor – Petracca

TOPHAWK1

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

Cliffy

TH!

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

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

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

Rick

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

KSinny

Thinking the same thing

Choppers

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

MagicGnome97

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

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

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

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

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

TOPHAWK1

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

Tjanks mate

Shake n bake

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

Shake n bake

By the way Simpkin playing

Holty01

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

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

ndd

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

Holty01

Thanks everyone

The Ranger

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

Makes sense Ranger.

Derek

You can’t have a donut mate.

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

Peter

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

Holty01

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

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

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

Peter

Thanks guys

Ja191

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

KSinny

For a 45, Risk it!

Holty01

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

Derek

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

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

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

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

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

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

Derek

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

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

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

Pman

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

Holty01

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_

How's Simpkin looking Holty? is he playing ok

Derek

Simpkin getting Very close attention. Not many easy possessions

Russty_

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

Connor

32 at half

Russty_

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

Derek

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

dusty

hey fellas,
Day or McPherson for cash generation?

Holty01

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

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

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

Agreed

Billioux

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

Russty_

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

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

Russty_

He's getting tagged by Curnow unfortunately mate.

Pman

D'oh!

Derek

Curnow all over him

Pman

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

Russty_

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

MagicGnome97

hes surely a bit underdone?

Derek

He gave away 4 frees and looked frustrated with the attention

ndd

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

Connor

Simpkin 6 clangers REALLY hurt his already terrible score 🙁

The Ranger

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

Derek

Mills in the guts where he belongs

Holty01

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

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

Holty01

Correction, 65 after scaling.

Unsullied

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

Keenbutclueless

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

StatsBloke

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

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

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

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

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

Russty_

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_

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

The Ranger

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

KSinny

He got -4 that quarter 💀

TBone_23

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

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

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_

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

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

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

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

Derek

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

TOPHAWK1

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

Think only 2 mate. No byes next week

JEL

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

Holty01

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

Conroy already played

Pman

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

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

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

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

Swans2012

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

Derek

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

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

The Jinx

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

Cameron might be the best move you have made.

50 at quarter time

The Jinx

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_

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

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

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_

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.

TOPHAWK1

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

Russty_

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

a pretty ordinary game though Russty

Derek

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

Pman

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_

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

silversovereign

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

TOPHAWK1

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

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

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

silversovereign

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

ndd

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

Holty01

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

TOPHAWK1

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

👍

ndd

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

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

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

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

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

Bellchambers just having a day out TH

Kat

Ryder and Marshall were Ok last night

Pman

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

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

Pman

He has been a massive let down this year.

Derek

Sorry fellas. Got Doedee in this week

Holty01

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

Derek

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

Derek…..it 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

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

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.

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

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

Pman

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

Derek

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

Kat

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

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

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

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

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_

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

TOPHAWK1

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

Russty_

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

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.

GJS

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

Russty_

Yeah wtf?!..is he injured or something?

The Lost Boys

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

Russty_

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

TOPHAWK1

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

JugHead

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

Russty_

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

Russty_

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

The Ranger

Smith – JJK on Tuesday then

M.Malthouse

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
