Festival Of Fantasy | Day 2

Published by Lekdog on

G’day community,

In an attempt to structure the site over the next 20 19 days we’ll periodically upload Festival of Fantasy (F.O.F) articles.

We’re basically trying toe Frankenstein all of our content together so that you can speak about the news of the day in the comments!

Melbourne v Port Adelaide

BREAKEVENS (STOLEN FROM BARRON)

Funny name for high breakevens (I’m not as clever as Barron)

Travis Boak 158

Brad Ebert 137

Max Gawn 137

Jarrod Leinert 128

Dan Houston 112

Funny name for low breakevens

Mitch Georgiades -57

Sam Mayes -39

Peter Ladhams 23

Christian Petracca 45

Clayton Oliver 58

CAPTAINS (STOLEN FROM DAMO)

TOP VC/C Options:

Max Gawn
Averages 114 against Port Adelaide and is coming up against Peter Ladhams…pick him. He hasn’t dropped below 141 Since Round 1…another reason to pick him.

Clayton Oliver
He’s coming off a huge 177 points against Brisbane, can;t think of a reason why he won’t do it again. Beast.

Travis Boak
Has had a few poor games in a row but there’s no reason to think he can’t bounce back. Recent scores of 119, 87 and 114 against the Demons might not be enough for you.

NEW FACES

Tom Sparrow
Debuted last year and played two games as a small forward and gets his chance again today. Scored a 77 in the preseason…one to watch for next week.

LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!

Think i'll be pulling the trigger on king – Georgiades this week. Thinking no Marshall gives him pretty good JS.

Which 2 to field out of Taylor, Ranking and Georgiades?

    Lekdog · 30/07/2020 at 12:07

    Rankine and Georgiades I reckon

TelescopicCox · 30/07/2020 at 12:33

Worth bringing in Cameron as cover, or Georgiades safer? Bringing in Cameron will let me move Xerri FWD as my loophole for Aarts

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 17:15

    I wouldn't bring either in.

    Lekdog · 30/07/2020 at 17:57

    I wouldn't be trading either in I don't think

Trades · 30/07/2020 at 12:38

Nicnat,King,D.Smith out
Gawn, McPherson, Close in
VC Gawn c’mon!

    :// · 31/07/2020 at 12:31

    Cursed Gawn

Doing some trades:

1) Starc, Taylor, Smith to Merrett, Parker (can also get Duncan or even Trac + Merrett together if i trade noble instead of starc), Close

v

2) Starc, Taylor to Neale and Close.

Both trades end up with similar money in the bank.

What does everyone think?

    The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 15:59

    I like option 2 – Neale is having an insane season and close looks good as a rookie and is crazy cheap.

    And even as a Bombers fan I'm well aware Merrett can be completely tagged out of a game, and with GWS coming up…..

      Sam · 30/07/2020 at 16:34

      Thanks mate. I am struggling to decide as its basically 2 premos v a Super premo

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 16:58

    I would go Merritt, Petracca & Close.

    Merritt & Petracca are bye friendly, and both capable of going huge.

    Really depends if you see Devin Smith as a keeper.

      Sam · 30/07/2020 at 17:07

      thanks mate for your thoughts

The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 15:52

Looking to trade out Rivers for one of McPherson, Day, McKay or Ling.

Leaning towards McPherson as will be on field unless S.Hill gets up (seems unlikely) or Brander comes in from Siberia (also unlikely).
Day looks very similar to McPherson but is an extra $30k. Despite McKays good scores so far, I'm very dubious he can keep that up. Ling would be great for a dollars perspective, but really concerned with job security.

Other trades will be McInerney to Close and Yeo to Oliver (to avoid a price rise due to low BE).

What are your thoughts community?

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 16:40

    I like Day, think his JS is very good, gets plenty of the ball, and think his DE will improve.

    Sam · 30/07/2020 at 16:41

    All of those rookies are quite expensive but if you have to choose one i'd go McPherson.

Cliffy · 30/07/2020 at 16:01

Just wondering about this community…

Have so far gone Brander – Close via DPP and Bewley – Baz Smith.

Well a few things have to fall my way first, but basically this move (and third trade) would finish my defense, I would get Aarts score (I'll wait to hear if O'Connor is playing or not first just to be safe haha) by going Dev Smith – Stewart. I also am still holding the trade as I watch to see if Doedee gets up or not for this week.

Is it worth it the trade for the points gain this week? Or do I persist with Dev for one more week, wait for Stewart to drop more in cash due to his huge BE, and ultimately save the trade for injury/emergency reasons?

Thanks

    Cliffy · 30/07/2020 at 16:04

    This is my team also:

    DEF: Sicily, Doc, Laird, Short, Doedee, O'Connor (McPherson, Starc)
    MID: Macrae, Cripps, Cogs, Simpkin, Danger, Parker, Simpson, Rivers (Pickett, Budarick, Bennell)
    RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Comben)
    FWD: Petracca, Dusty, Whitfield, Baz Smith, Dev Smith, Rankine (Aarts, Close)

    and I have $102,500k leftover.

      Sam · 30/07/2020 at 16:38

      I'd just go O'Conner to Stewart if you can afford that.

      what do you think of my trades ^

      Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 16:45

      I would leave the forward line as it is.

      Getting the Aarts score this week might be nice, but I’d rather have your existing forward line going forward.

      I’d say wait on the Doedee, and either upgrade him to Ridley (or another option).

JEL · 30/07/2020 at 16:29

Dev expected to lose $15k and score 64
Stew expected to lose $35k and score 85
Depends if you want 20 points or $20k?
**These are just figures from the SC projections.

    Cliffy · 30/07/2020 at 16:36

    Thanks for those!

KSinny · 30/07/2020 at 16:38

Hey community would really appreciate some advice on what to do this week as I'm confused on what to do, here is my team.

DEF: Sicily, Daniel, Ridley, Docherty, Doedee, Hill (BZT, Gould)

MID: Danger, Steele, Titch, Brayshaw, Bont, Cripps, Simpson, Pickett (Bennell, Budarick, Robertson)

RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Xerri)

FWD: Whitfield, Dusty, B Smith, D Smith, King, Rankine (Brander, Cavarra)

I've got 23 trades and 5.4k in the bank.

Thanks guys πŸ‘

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 16:52

    Downgrade Budarick to Close, and use the extra $ to upgrade Hill, who may not play.

    Also be prepared to sideways trade Doedee in case he doesn’t play.

      Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 16:55

      Could also choose to trade Brander instead of Hill for a defensive upgrade. Depends who you would prefer to trade out. Hill is probably going to play more games than Brander in the next few weeks.

    derek · 30/07/2020 at 18:53

    i think BZT gets a game

TelescopicCox · 30/07/2020 at 17:06

Who is more essential – Neale or Petracca? I can get both over the next 2 weeks at the expense of my playing rookies to afford it.

I’d sacrifice cover for top line premos by carrying the likes of Xerri, Brander, McInerney and Rivers

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 17:10

    Neale will be cheaper next week, and Petracca more expensive, so if you are bring one in each of the next 2 rounds, get Petracca now, and Neale next week

    TommyC99 · 30/07/2020 at 17:22

    There’s 2 ways of looking at it. The first way I got from playing fantasy premier league. If you’re planning on spending a big chunk of your budget on a player, how many times are you planning on captaining that player over the next few weeks? So who are you more likely to captain over the next few weeks? This probably isn’t as relevant in SuperCoach due to you generally spread your budget more evenly, whereas with less players to field in epl SuperCoach, you tend to pick a few big hitters, but it’s food for thought nevertheless.

    Another way is to determine how much better they are compared to other players on their line. Neale is on average 25 points better than the next highest averaging mid, whereas trac is only 8pts better than the next best fwd.

    long story short, I think Tracca is more likely to have a down game over the next few compared to Neale, so I’d go Neale imo

TommyC99 · 30/07/2020 at 17:15

So I am planning on bringing in Stewart this week, I know he will drop in price but I need to play a little aggressive so hoping I might be able to cash in on a ton before everyone jumps on. Was originally going to be for Williamson but with doedee under Injury cloud I’m not so sure. I can trade for Williamson and hope doedee gets up. Or I can trade hill up to him, who is looking like missing one more week (plus his bye), although he’s only made 70k and has a 30 BE. If I trade Hill it means barring Williamson gets dropped, I know I won’t Have a zero if doedee is a late out, but Williamson needs to go. Thoughts guys?

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 17:25

    Comments from Doedee make me think he is likely to play.

    Id punt that he plays and move Williamson for Stewart.

      Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 17:42

      Guess the other question you have to ask is –

      Has Doedee done his job, price has risen $160k, and has a BE of 112. If you can field a side trading him, then its probably his time to go.

        TommyC99 · 30/07/2020 at 18:04

        hmm you raise a good point. Tbh in this crazy season i have contemplated holding him all season. Hes doing more than enough for the 270 price tag i paid for him. Is he top 6? Touch and go but leaning towards no, but hes more than good enough for D6

Tofa · 30/07/2020 at 17:26

Love your work Lek, and in general you lads are doing a fantastic job in crazy crazy times! It's total bedlam but also an exciting year and I feel like the whole JR team is rolling with it and providing awesome content and adaptability across the pod and the site.

Also a big thanks to the regular guys posting here, so much good wisdom and chuckles.

ps. Power for Premiers 2020*
pps. * = worth more than a regular year!!

    Lekdog · 30/07/2020 at 17:58

    Love ya Tofa

      Tofa · 30/07/2020 at 19:04

      Love ya Leky
      go the Blues

s c tragic · 30/07/2020 at 17:52

I need help, is this round best 18 on field? If so can we use capt.loophole or do the 18 have to be on the field and emergencies do not come into play. I am soooo confused….

    Lekdog · 30/07/2020 at 17:58

    This is a full normal round

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 17:58

    No, this week is normal scoring, but with 3 trades.

    Best 18 applies to rounds with byes in them (rounds 10 & 11 so far, with more to come).

s c tragic · 30/07/2020 at 18:04

Thanks guys, too much happening,so little time. It is good to have this support from the community.

redherringfc · 30/07/2020 at 18:37

Oh, saturday and sunday teams aren’t named at their normal time.

Does anyone know when these will drop?

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 18:38

    24 hours before the game

      redherringfc · 30/07/2020 at 18:47

      That’s going to cause some problems.

      Fingers crossed, Close gets another game.

    derek · 30/07/2020 at 18:50

    6.20pm the day before

derek · 30/07/2020 at 18:49

finally traded Gawn in. I must say i'm not feeling as much calm as i should.

    Ralph_7 · 30/07/2020 at 19:03

    Put the VC on him, that should sort the nerves out πŸ˜‰

      Ralph_7 · 30/07/2020 at 21:53

      Lol nevermind

        Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 22:25

        The whole team dudded tonight, very subdued scoring.

      Derek · 30/07/2020 at 22:12

      Put the VC on Oliver

    Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 20:26

    Only 37 at the quarter, means he only gets 150 or so tonight πŸ˜‰

    The Jinx · 30/07/2020 at 21:34

    Surprisingly I'm relaxed even though he's not scoring well. Maybe I'm just used to it by now with every player bring in or knowing the fact that I stuffed everyone else.πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚kidding.

    Bells · 30/07/2020 at 22:05

KSinny · 30/07/2020 at 18:59

Thoughts on King to Georgiadis

    redherringfc · 30/07/2020 at 19:25

    You’re only taking 100k and Georgiades probably doesn’t have the same job security as King. (without any real knowledge on it)

    But if Close gets dropped I’ll probably make the same trade myself.

      Jack · 30/07/2020 at 19:35

      Great trade imh. Personally started the season with Georgiadis and should make plenty of cash in the coming rounds. I think for the next month or so, i think Georgiadis has good JS with both marshall and motlop on the pine for 4-6 weeks, so he should get plenty of chances. If you don't have close, id get him over georgiadis only bcos hes 80k cheaper

DEESNUTSRBIG · 30/07/2020 at 19:14

The bad news is rollin in slow.
Hibberd 219k dropped.
As if I dont have enough non playing rookies who have made bugger all cash: Hill, Brander, Rivers, Brown, McInerney, Sturt.
Williamson, Taylor, Simpson, Budarick, all still on field ticking me off too.
Keep em comin.

Jorg Ancrath · 30/07/2020 at 19:14

After much soul searching I've stuck with Dev Smith. I just felt for sure he'd ton up if I traded him. I've made my ritual sacrifice to the SC Gods. Expect a massive one from him. I also a asked for a shitttter from Gawn. Sorry guys.

    The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 19:50

    I've stuck with him again as needed to other guys to trade out. Can't believe the Dons dropped Hibberd, who was playing well, and kept Smith. Still debating whether to actually have him on the field or stick on the pine.

    I'm not sure anything less than sacrificing the entire world will impact Gawns scoring ability πŸ™‚

      Jorg Ancrath · 30/07/2020 at 20:56

      If I could loophole I'd do it in a heartbeat. Ol Dev is a rookie type these days. Sad.

    Trades · 30/07/2020 at 21:07

    Against Brisbane… unlikely

Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 19:26

Appreciate the help of the community.

My team as it stands now-

Lloyd, Haynes, Doch, Laird, Doedee, Noble (HILL, BZT)

Neale, Coniglio, Cripps, Viney, Whitfield, D.Smith, Simpson, Bennell (Pickett, Budarick, McInerney)

Gawn, Grundy (Cameron)

Petracca, Dusty, B.Smith, C.Taylor, Rankine, Georgiaris (Aarts, Brander)

I have $59,600 in cash, used 1 trade this week already. Regardless of my trades I have at least 21 likely playing players for next week.

Looking at the following options –

1. Hill & Budarick for Close & Hurn

2. Hill & Taylor for Close & Hurn (or any better defensive option under $484,400)

3. Brander & Taylor for Close & Hurn

    The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 19:46

    I'd be looking at trading out McInerney before Budarick / Taylor for Close – better to keep those actually playing I reckon.

    With a defensive option, not sure what's out there for that price but I'm not sure about Hurn just before his bye?

The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 19:42

Since Hibberd has been dropped I'll need one of S.Simpson, B.Close or Dev Smith on the field. That should be an easy question but since Smith has been spuding it up like a pro, I'm honestly thinking one of the Geelong boys might be a better option.

Can't loophole either as already loop-holing the ton from Picket via Bennell.

Any suggestions?

    JugHead · 30/07/2020 at 19:59

    I'd lean toward Simpson. But wait and make sure he is named first.

    Jorg Ancrath · 30/07/2020 at 20:57

    I sacrificed the family cat on the alter of the SC Gods. Dev is going big. Mark my words.

Pman · 30/07/2020 at 20:20

A lacklustre 23 points from Maxy at QTR time, hope this isn't a sign to come for this game!

    dontblushbaby · 30/07/2020 at 20:22

    He was off for awhile with a shoulder complaint, should be all good now

TOPHAWK1 · 30/07/2020 at 20:35

Geez. The Dees are playing some scheize footy tonight. Lift FFS!

    Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 20:40

    They're trying to out-do Freo for crapness from the other week.

      The Lost Boys · 30/07/2020 at 20:53

      And Oliver reported too – just after i bring him in!

        Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 20:55

        Ouch mate, I brought Georgiades in this week and he's on 7 points LOL

        Pman · 30/07/2020 at 20:56

        There is NO way he'll get a week for that, fine at best.

        Jorg Ancrath · 30/07/2020 at 20:59

        He'll be fine. Hardly touched him and could argue was accidental anyway. If Tomahawk gets off for a clear elbow , Clarry is fine.

        S.Goodwin · 30/07/2020 at 21:18

        He punches a lot harder than he goes at the footy and his punches wouldn't knock the dust off a butterfly's wings. The softest seagull in the comp and his skills are atrocious somebody in the Champion Data Banglesh data centre must have bought him in this week coz theres no way he's at 57% DE the 5 in that number should be a naught. every he muppetts it up the opposition get a goal

          K.Hinkley · 30/07/2020 at 21:25

          lol. Tru Dat. You can always tell when Oliver has had a lot of the ball because the opposition has scored a lot of goals from turnovers. He's a shocker

    The Ranger · 30/07/2020 at 21:42

    They’ve gotta get more out of Brayshaw.
    Stick him in the guts Goody!

Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 20:54

Tough SC night so far.

I have – Gawn (VC), Petracca, Viney & Georgiades
Opponent has – Gawn & S.Mayes

    Pman · 30/07/2020 at 21:14

    I just noted Georgiades has 6 points at half time, stinker or injured?

      Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 21:24

      Stinker, was 20 points after 3 minutes, kicked the first goal, then gave away 2 x 50mtr penalties, and has done nothing else.

        Pman · 30/07/2020 at 21:51

        Made a bit of acomeback with 3 goals mid way through the 3rd QTR.

        Geez Melbourne are rubbish though…

    Jeffrey.K · 30/07/2020 at 22:18

    I came close to getting Mayes instead of Bailey Smith but balked due to the hype. Big mistake. Why do people here call him Bazlenka? He looks nuthin like a bald sleazy eastern euro with a rubbish mo.

The Jinx · 30/07/2020 at 20:58

Sorry fellas I brought in Gawn this week. As I said before, every player I brought in scores poorly that week. I thought I'd do everyone a favour and not have him as my Captain so I don't Jinx ya guys.

    Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 20:59

    Can I blame you for Georgiades too Jinxsy?…he's crappin the bed bigtime

      The Jinx · 30/07/2020 at 21:07

      Sure mate, even though I don't have himπŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    The Ranger · 30/07/2020 at 21:30

    Bloody hell Jinx!

    AuroraBorealis?! · 31/07/2020 at 11:26

    Your name makes so much more sense now mate! Jinxing everything

Jeffrey.K · 30/07/2020 at 21:42

Georgiades has had more disposals than McKay had last week and also kicked 2 goals but his score is only half of what McKays was. Admittedly Power are player the shower but still how does that work?

    Mitch is back · 30/07/2020 at 22:08

    Georgiades had more impact tonight that last week, and last scored a lot lower SC score

      Jeffrey.K · 30/07/2020 at 22:15

      Defies logic Mitch supercoach scoring is like powerballl

      MagicGnome97 · 31/07/2020 at 00:24

      he didn't deserve even close to what he got last week, that being said he deserved an 80 or so today.

    Dan · 30/07/2020 at 22:29

    Good point. The commentators rated him as one of the Power's best, yet he was one of their lowest scorers from a SC perspective.

Bells · 30/07/2020 at 22:10

Who should be my C this week.
A. Neale? Do the dons have a tagger?
B. Grundy? Thinking rucks scoring has been revised down by the SC gods…
C. Josh Kelly

Thanks community.

    Pman · 30/07/2020 at 22:13

    I have Neale and will put the C on him, I don't have Kelly but I doubt he'll get another 195 again this week and even if I did have him I'd still back Neale.

gator59 · 30/07/2020 at 22:12

Dees are tanking already.. What an insipid effort.. Bring in Pertrappa they say Pffft

    ndd · 31/07/2020 at 13:45

    Not gonna suck me in when was the last time your mob won a flag At least we won in 88 and in the district cricket By the way they are lining up to join Kent ,,,Hannan weeds Harmes2 maccas cliff young NDD

      JohnDJ59 · 31/07/2020 at 16:22

      The Saints last won in 66, we last won in 64.

        ndd · 31/07/2020 at 20:04

        Gat will know what i mean When it's been that long even a night granny is good I was there when Froggy kicked the winning score in 64 and remember it like yesterday probably gat remembers 66 just as well lol cheers John

Jeffrey.K · 30/07/2020 at 22:12

Starting with Max instead of Grundy and putting the C on him almost every week has saved me in a lot of games this year but damn it's worrying to see that he still hangs out of the contest when the opposition go physical on him. FFS Max you're 2kms tall and have greater reach than anybody in the game learn to stiff arm mate, you shouldn't be getting intimidated by munchkins.

Dash · 30/07/2020 at 22:15

M Duncan or Z Merrett?

    Derek · 30/07/2020 at 22:38

    Shiel back this week. Merret back on the wing

    AuroraBorealis?! · 31/07/2020 at 11:24

    Duncan all the way for me Dash, put Merrett on the never again list a couple years back, just too weak for my liking.

Jeffrey.K · 30/07/2020 at 22:25

I still have Spudley Rivers clogging up my bench, how bad at footy must he be if he can't get a run in a team as soft as Melbourne. Even Carlton weren't that insipid when Malthouse was coaching them. If they didn't have Viney the whole team would get scared off the ball by the under 16's.
ps. Thanks for the inside scoop on Rivers "the best back flanker youv'e ever seen" ndd. Maybe watch some games that aren't melbourne 1sts v melbourne 2nd's the bloke is a bust

    Pman · 30/07/2020 at 22:46

    I have him clogging up my bench too and if he's not at least an Emergency next week after Melbourne's insipid effort tonight then he's never going to get a game and I'll dump him next week accordingly. Maybe he's injured?

    Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 23:30

    Mate all rookies are buyer beware and if you don't or didn't like him, don't pick him, Neil isn't responsible for your team choices, so please don't try to lay any blame if one of your rooks isn't performing or getting a game, it's a fubar year anyhoo…who knows why he isn't playing?…just trade him out.

JugHead · 30/07/2020 at 22:26

As another non Gawn owner, its hard not to think about how tonights score affects his price.
If he *only* gets 140 odd next week and the the rd 7 score of 185 drops out…….hmm…..well he could be back to a "bargain" price of 700k maybe…….

    JohnDJ59 · 31/07/2020 at 08:10

    I like the ''bargain''part, yes it looks like he could end up back at his starting price of 697,100 or even around 650.000 by round 13. Even if non owners pick Max up for 50k less than I paid, I'm more than happy I started with him considering the amount of times I've had the C on him and even without, when I used the VC score of Grundy or Neale. It really does pay to just pay up at the start for some of the premos.

TOPHAWK1 · 30/07/2020 at 22:44

How can Mitch Georgiades get 11 pozzies, score 3 goals (2 behinds) for 55 SC?

Last night Jake Aarts got 7 pozzies for 3 goals for 75 SC?

I have both players. SC data need to get it sorted. TH

    Valens_FC · 30/07/2020 at 23:11

    Gave away 2 x 50s first half I believe.

ST1974 · 30/07/2020 at 23:02

Put your the VC on Gawn and now have to look elsewhere to put the C. Do I go Neale, Grundy or a left of field option like Steele.

    JohnDJ59 · 30/07/2020 at 23:24

    Neale

      Russty_ · 30/07/2020 at 23:32

      I agree John, In Neale we trust, unless he cops a hard tag.

Pieman · 30/07/2020 at 23:14

Anyone watch tobe Watson for freo play his last game? Need a rookie defender thats actually get a game and not cost me a heap like McPherson or McKay. Missed the boat on the fixing up injuries >:(

    AuroraBorealis?! · 31/07/2020 at 11:28

    He didn't look terrible, but at the same time he really didn't set the field alight. He was a bit fumbly but that being said, due to the weather everybody played a bit poorly

TelescopicCox · 31/07/2020 at 09:58

Brought in Petracca over Neale as the $100k could mean an extra premo in the coming weeks. I'm not too displeased by his performance. Went at 40% but still managed a 99. If that's his new floor you gotta be happy

    AuroraBorealis?! · 31/07/2020 at 11:28

    I will take a 99 from a forward any day

MagicGnome97 · 31/07/2020 at 11:24

on track for 2400 this week but facing a 0 in my backline with doedee out and hill and rivers and me already having done 3 trades this week.

    derek · 31/07/2020 at 12:42

    was worried about Doedee/Rivers/Brander/Hill not playing, so kept a trade up my sleeve in case.

    I'd like to hold Doedee because i just traded him in last week, (annoyed i traded Starcevich out now), but i won't get much if i trade Hill or Brander out.

    Trade Doedee to either; Hurn, Stewart, BrodieSmith, Andrews or even Zac Bailey

    are we certain Doedee and Hill are out?

      MagicGnome97 · 31/07/2020 at 14:40

      yep. hill is back in round 11 and doedee will probably just miss this one but be back for the next. i wouldn't trade doedee or hill out. rivers or brander. i'd say brander since rivers hasn't made much cash yet.

      I really wanted to get both Bailey Smith and Petracca in this week to try and get 2 rookie scores off the field. but to afford both i need to get close as well. so i had to use three trades. i could've saved the petracca trade and gone curtis taylor > lloyd and done a sqitch, but i was just hoping doedee would play. petracca has a much lower breakeven and didnt want to sacrifice my plan just for the chance of doedee being out, especially when all news on doedee up until today was very positive. adelaide journos saying he'll be a final day/gameday test and whatnot.

Ja191 · 31/07/2020 at 11:48

With Doedee out, do I start starcevic or zerk thatcher? – leaning with zerk-thatcher

    derek · 31/07/2020 at 12:43

    you are doing well to even have a choice.

    If its dry i'd go with Zerk

    AuroraBorealis?! · 31/07/2020 at 12:44

    Do you have a source on Doedee definitely being out Ja? Cheers

      Box · 31/07/2020 at 13:46

      AFL web sight,

ndd · 31/07/2020 at 13:22

Gibbs in Doedee out

Shake n bake · 31/07/2020 at 15:06

How’s Brown and Polac dropped from Nth!!!

    ndd · 31/07/2020 at 16:01

    They would both get a game at melbourne and be welcome Strange

Shake n bake · 31/07/2020 at 16:38

Keane to play for Pies. Thought he might have got a call up a few weeks back

derek · 31/07/2020 at 17:06

lets watch Pitto have a massive game tonight

Holty01 · 31/07/2020 at 19:00

Now as a Cripp’s owner and a Carlton supporter, I love the bloke but when you cough up the ball twice in the second quarter (which should of resulted in goals) and the opposition score goals as a result of the mistakes, how does he score 26 points in the 2nd from only 3 touches?

    Shake n bake · 31/07/2020 at 20:08

    Same as Sicily had 2 handballs that went nowhere in the 1st qtr and was on 20 at qtr time

Shake n bake · 31/07/2020 at 20:10

When l go into the home page it says error?? Anyone else getting this

    Russty_ · 31/07/2020 at 20:59

    Yeah I've experienced the same Shake, think you need to clear your dns cache, I use chrome so I did it by clicking on the 3 dots top right under 'more tools' clear browsing data.
    Mine seems to be fine now.
