Festival of Fantasy | Day 14

Published by Patch on

The never-ending season of sportsball continues on its merry way today, which someone told me was Monday. Two games of football? On a Monday?! Lord have mercy.

Anyway, St Kilda and Geelong play a game which could be at literally any ground in the country outside Victoria and I wouldn’t be surprised, while Freo and Hawthorn clash in Perth.

Tobe Watson’s been dropped, Angus Brayshaw will* play, Sam Simpson’s been rested – it’s all happening.

CAPTAINS

If you haven’t VC’d Jack Macrae, Clayton Oliver, Lachie Neale or Christian Petracca then I don’t know what to tell you. You’ve goofed. If you’ve goofed , maybe you have chance for redemption. Maybe

Tom Mitchell is good at football – specifically getting the football. He’s also good at scoring points. He might get some attention from Crowden tonight but honestly he’ll still have 30 touches. Nat Fyfe has been flagged to play forward in the wet – I’d avoid. Could you go #BrayshawBreakout? Magic Eight Ball says: if you’re Damo.

In the other game, Jack Steele and Patrick Dangerfield have been scoring oodles of points this year and you’d back them in to do it again. Mitch Duncan might be a decent POD skipper, but I’m not going there after he only just scraped the 100 last week.

I can tell you for free Jade Gresham isn’t a good pick, because I picked him over Dusty aS a PoD sElEcTiOn and he scored me 50-bloody-five.

BREAKEVENS

Do we even look at these any more? I don’t know? What do numbers mean? I’m losing my goddam mind!

-33 – Caleb Serong
0 – Nick Hind
10 – Lachie Schultz
23 – Gryan Miers
23 – Brad Close
25 – Jack Bytel
32 – Max King
55- Chadley Wingard

212 – Joel Selwood
158 – Nat Fyfe
150 – Paddy Ryder
130 – Paddy Dangerfield
121 – Ben Long
116 – Jack Steele

NEW FACES

Jack Bytel is a human being who plays football for St Kilda and is someone you can select in your Supercoach side. Apparently he’s good? We’ll find out. He’s a $123k midfielder, if that helps.

How is your team looking after four games? Did you nail the VC? What is happening with holding the ball? Let us know in the comments!

Do we think Simpson gets back anytime soon? My mid bench is a walking mess with McInerny, Simpson & Bennell.

I'll be doing Budarick or Simpson to Schoenberg

Jake

Yes simpson will be back next week no doubt

Muzz

Confused? If l have Whitfield and Kelly on ground and put the emergency on all 3 of Mahoney,BUdarick and Schoenberg do l get the 2 highest or lowest scores. Help

Keenbutclueless

You get the two lowest. If you don’t want Mahoney 38, then you can still swap Schoenberg and Budarik for Kelly and Whitfield

Russty_

Looks like Ridley will be alright to play this week.

TOPHAWK1

Thank God for that Russty. He is a star in the making. Where did you hear he should be good to play? Cheers,

Russty_

An article in the Age, woosha said he expects him to play…it's not definite though.

hedski

Budarick to Adams or Simpson to Titch?
I'm thinking of holding Simpson because he still has some money to make and he should be back next week, I also like Adams as a pod.

TOPHAWK1

Simpson to Titch for me Hedski. Cheers. TH

Dash

I was looking at trading Titch, but it's out of Simpson or Noble?

hedski

Done TH

The Ranger

Adams is too much of an injury risk for me Hedski.
And Titch has had his bye.

hedski

Titch it is thanks fellas.
Schoenberg or Ruscoe?
Gotta do this trade now too before the cats game, don't know much about Schoenberg but I liked Ruscoe, DPP could be handy too.

The Ranger

Flip a coin of those two?
You'd think Schoenberg has pretty good JS but Ruscoes DPP is handy so….

hedski

Hmmmm.

TelescopicCox

I’m tossing up too. Leaning to Schoenberg based on job security. Pies have a lot of mid sized forwards that can take Ruscoe’s role

Shake_n_bake

Ryder won’t play tonight

Dash

Noble or Simpson trade for Titch?

hedski

I traded Simpson to Titch (I also traded Noble the week he tonned up)

hedski

Ruscoe and Titch in.
Come on Cattas πŸ‘πŸ»

hedski

Good game so far Russty and Gator πŸ–•πŸ˜

Russty_

Cheers mate, hoping Sainters can get up although Cats look good and Danger and Duncan have hardly got going yet.

TommyC99

Field day or McPherson

JohnDJ59

McPherson.

JohnDJ59

Looks like I will be getting Bytel and Wicks in next round.

TOPHAWK1

Bytel if named next week is coming in. Looked great in the first half.

JohnDJ59

He's done enough for me, just have to wait to see if he gets picked again.

Russty_

Shame about the rest of the team, bunch of bloody spuds!

TOPHAWK1

I own no Saints players. Too many turd droppers. I like Bytel. He has some pizazz about him.

Russty_

I've had Steele for awhile who's been good but not so much tonight, his de is 50 %
Yeah nice stats for Bytel, good CP and Clearance numbers, 18 disposals, nice debut.

JohnDJ59

Should keep his spot no worries.

JohnDJ59

Disappointing tonight Russty, you needed to kick 12.1 again to be a chance.

Russty_

Back to our good ole can't scoring ways John, I could barely watch, especially after 3 blokes in the goalsquare allowed Dangerfield's 65 metre kick to bounce through for a goal.

JohnDJ59

That would hurt.

Russty_

Your Dees are starting to turn things around mate, that's encouraging.

JohnDJ59

It helps when you play the bottom two clubs in a row, get a bit of confidence back, Collingwood will be the test.

Russty_

Yep kinda like the test we had tonight, and failed miserably…hope your blokes go better mate.

Shake_n_bake

Held off on Schoe this week only used 2 trades really wanted to see how Bytel went

hedski

Thinking the same DJ

JohnDJ59

Already had Wicks on my watchlist, added Bytel last night, I get them in next round and I should have mostly playing rookies on my benches.

Cliffy

I need to pick one of Grundy or Titch for C, and Cameron being named scares me a bit from going on Grundy, especially given the team tactics the Crows could impose on him, which worked against Gawn.

Thoughts on who I go with?

Cliffy

Help…. Haha

Russty_

Titch then mate…easy πŸ™‚

Russty_

Titch on 72 at 3/4 time Cliffy, I hope he comes home stong with the points for ya mate.

DemonsDelight

Butler was disappointing Not sure he is the real deal yet Bytel however looks a chance at least in sc

The Lost Boys

Is it worth bringing in Schoenberg this week and missing out on one of Wick or Bytel next week, for the extra week of cash generation? Or better to wait and be able to bring in the two better looking rookies next week?

Russty_

Most rookies only look good for a week or 2 before they revert to…50 per week if you're lucky.
I passed on Wicks this week but brought Schoenberg in, (59 for a debut is alright with me)..with Bytel, I'd like to know he'll keep his spot once the rested Jones comes back in next week before considering him.
Wicks looked alright despite his indiscretion with the illegal metal stud incident that injured Quaynor.

Russty_

Hawks look pretty awful tonight, think Clarko maybe should've gotten out a bit earlier and let someone else take over, it's sad cause they were a powerhouse side for many years but that was 5 years ago. If I was Clarko I would've gone and played Golf lol

Derek

Fremantle had 99 more disposals than the Hawks….. Fremantle!

I can’t watch them anymore

Derek

SHill’s score will be counted in my best 28 ahead of Chad’s

Derek

18

Russty_

I feel your pain Derek, the Saints reverted back to the usual Saints tonight, the last time I felt proud of them was 10 years ago, and that ended in disappointment.
I'm surprised you still have Hill in your side, he was somewhere we should never have gone lol

AuroraBorealis?!

Holding Brayshaw after his poor start has to be my best decision this year. Not a whole lot to choose from though haha

Russty_

Hey AB, I was just reading the comments in that other place, fanfooty and half those blokes were regretting trading out Brayshaw too early, I was too dumb to believe in him in the first place , and many others this year lol

Derek

Hawks just let him do what he wanted. No pressure at all

AuroraBorealis?!

Yeah he was free to roam huh

Derek

The hawks will play the occasional good game, but their opponents midfield usually score very well.

Look to see who the hawks play, especially in draft

AuroraBorealis?!

I think the moral here is to trust in Damo

Russty_

What shits me is….I picked Brayshaw, Petracca, Viney, Greenwood etc in other years where they completely failed…just not in the year they finally became players.

DemonsDelight

Know the feeling mate or i just dismissed them as duds ,petracca always thought he was ordinary at sc How wrong

Patch

I hate to admit you might be right. The man is smart.

AuroraBorealis?!

Praise be our lord and Damiour

JohnDJ59

I love my young guns, Oliver, Petracca, Brayshaw.

Kangaz

Had brayshaw from round 1. He's doing better than expected.

Derek

Do we have 2 or 3 trades next round

JohnDJ59

3

Derek

Next round is best 22?

Patch

Yep, back to 22 next week

Derek

I needed just 2 of my rookies to have a decent score. So far Close is the best of them with a half decent score. Pickett, Aarts, Hill, Rivers haven’t cracked 60. Chad gave me a rookie score as well. Rankine is my last hope (Budarick on bench).

It’s been the year of the rookies scoring 50’s

JohnDJ59

50 to 60 is all I expect from my rookies this season, anything over is celebrated, anything below, no comment.

Nifty

Hey Derek,

Where can i find the group code for the JR Survivor group please.

Nifty

Hey Derek,

I've found it. Thanks for organising this.

Derek

Ok

matt

Where would i find the code Derek? EAGLE POWER div 1…..love playing this format , much appreciated.

JohnDJ59

SuperCoach is a funny game, last week I could only field 19 players and I thought I was in for a bad round, I scored 2,054 and won 8/10 games. This round was supposed to be the easy round with 26 players to chose from for my 22 on field players after using my three trades on getting rid of three non playing rookies. I'm currently projected to score 1,945 and win 6/10 games, but with two games to go it's still to early to tell how it will pan out, what ever happens it sure hasn't been the easy round I was expecting.

Thomas

Does Butler have to go this week?
