Panic Room | Round Six

Published by Fozdaddy on

Friday night lockouts are back, and with it the Panic Room is now a Friday installment once again! Hooray for SuperCoaches, and hooray for teams. One extra day of planning trades, and one less day to worry about your rookies getting dropped suddenly.

Newz You Can Uze

The Bevo Salad is back in round six, with the Bulldogs making six changes despite being 5-0 and sitting first. Caleb Daniel will return from his suspension, while non-SuperCoach relevant players Zaine Cordy, Lin Jong, Stefan Martin and Laitham Vandermeer will also come in. Pat Lipinski has been dropped and is surely now looking for a contract at a club that will actually play him, while Jordan Sweet, Bailey Williams, Lewis Young, and Lachie McNeil have all been left out. Matt Flynn will return, much to Patch’s relief, while Harry Perryman has recovered from his bout of Glandular and will play his first game in a few weeks. Sam Reid and Shane Mumford have come out of the side.

Jeremy Cameron ($388,100 FWD) makes his debut for Geelong on Saturday, and will provide an interesting mid-priced prospect if he plays a high Centre Half Forward role that we expect. Mark O’Connor has also come in, with Patrick Dangerfield and Sam De Koning coming out. No love for Jordan Clark, however he’ll possibly be the sub as he isn’t featuring for Geelong’s VFL side today.

Charlie Ballard returns for the Suns, along with Sean Lemmens. Jarrod Harbrow, Darcy MacPherson and Alex Sexton have all been left out of the side against the Swans. Mass changes for Sydney, with Kaiden Brand, Isaac Heeney, Hayden McLean, James Rowbottom and Callum Sinclair coming in. Braeden Campbell, Logan McDonald, Dylan Stephens, Tom Hickey, Lance Franklin and Tom McCartin have all missed out through injury or omission. Campbell is likely to be the sub for the Swans.

David Cuningham and Liam Stocker ($186,500 DEF) will come into the Blues side to take on Brisbane, with Paddy Dow, Tom Williamson and Matthew Kennedy all missing selection. Deven Robertson comes in for Jarrod Berry, who’s missing through injury.

Steven May makes a miraculous return from his concussion/fractured eye socket and will line up against the Tigers. Bailey Fritsch will also return, with Mitch Brown, Harrison Petty and Tom Sparrow making way.

North have brought back Luke Davies-Uniacke, Connor Menadue and Cameron Zurhaar, with Aaron Hall, Kyron Hayden, Charlie Lazzaro and Bailey Scott all out of the side to play Fremantle. Adam Cerra misses through injury, however the rest of the side is unchanged.

Riley Thilthorpe ($202,800 RUC/FWD) will debut for Adelaide on Sunday, however the teams haven’t been released yet.

Breakevens

High Breakevens

  • 191 – Pat Dangerfield
  • 190 – Jordan Ridley
  • 174 – Steven May
  • 173 – Stephen Coniglio
  • 172 – Rowan Marshall
  • 172 – Cam Guthrie
  • 163 – Michael Walters
  • 159 – Caleb Daniel
  • 156 – Brodie Grundy
  • 154 – Jake Lloyd

Low Breakevens

  • -68 – Tom Highmore
  • -51 – Stefan Giro
  • -48 – Lachie Jones
  • -45 – Beau McCreery
  • -41 – Mitch Lewis
  • -34 – Matt Flynn
  • -33 – Rhyan Mansell
  • -27 – Miles Bergman
  • -23 – James Rowe
  • -23 – Jordan Sweet

Oh Captain my Captain

The absolute lock of all locks would be Max Gawn into Brodie Grundy. Gawn is coming up against Richmond, who he averages 148.3 against in his last four (163, 134, 145, 151). He’s also averaging 140 on the year, or 151.75 without his round one score. Grundy is playing Essendon, who he’s averaging 149.3 against in his last four (151, 157, 134, 155). They are also scores against the Bombers when they had established rucks playing (Sam Draper/Tom Bellchambers) however he’ll be going up against Peter Wright. If you have Jordan Ridley you can use him as a loop as well.

Otherwise, Josh Dunkley is playing Friday night and hasn’t dropped below a ton yet, with his last two against the Giants being 128 and 169. Sam Walsh has played Brisbane twice for an average of 130, and is averaging 116.8 on the year, while Tom Mitchell has 120 and 136 in his last two against the Crows.

Tillthorp to debut

TommyC99

Looks like Nathan Murphy is gonna play his first game since 2018. I know going early on rookies is very silly but any love for him as a replacement for Clark? I cant upgrade clark so if he is the sub again not trading him risks losing coin. Or should i just take the hit?

JohnDJ59

I was thinking about having the VC on Dunkley again this week after his 148 last round, but I’ve gone with the ”safe” option of Max into Grundy and yes I will be using Ridley as my loop.

Rick Grimes

I’m VCing Dunks. Teams are putting work into Macrae and Bont, so Dunkley is doing as he pleases.

JohnDJ59

I still like the VC option of Dunkley, I just don’t want to have to make the same decision as last week, when I had the C on Max and took the VC score of Dunkley. Hoping that Max scores 150+ again.

Steeeve

Was going to pass on McReery but need some cash gen so going Campbell to him this week (unless Campbell is named). Hopefully Fin Macrae next week and Nathan Murphy after that. Some very good rookies but some that just aren’t cutting it for cash gen.

Greendale

In: McCreery and Walsh, Out: Clark and Berry (injured). I’m not hugely sold on McCreery but Collingwood have an easy next few weeks, and I don’t see many rookies I like on the near horizon. Current plans for next round are Cambell and Warner for Finn Macrae and Ben Brown if selected.

Josh

Big panic stations this week! Jones being out throws a real spanner in the works

I currently have Ridley and Clark on field with Highmore and Fyfe on the bench in my backline

Would my best option be trading berry/Campbell to Mansell via fyfe’s dpp to cover Ridley and then waiting to see if Clark is named tomorrow (could also wait and see if highmore is named sat night)

If Clark doesn’t get a game I’d have ~$480k to upgrade him so I’d be looking at one of Lever, Hunter Clark, Saad, Witherden – none really tick any big boxes though

JohnDJ59

Hunter Clark is a good one, but he could be a late out due to illness.

Joe_T

Is it worth the $100k by going Meek to Treacy? I know neither had set the world on fire but seems like Longmuir is backing Treacy so perhaps JS is better for the season?

Russty_

I’d be a bit concerned with Darcy playing how much rucking does Treacy do.
Could be some pretty lean scores if he’s mostly just key fwd.

Shake n bake

No crowds in perth

J.Clark omitted…wonderful

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

Have been a bit busy this week, so it is a late posting of the results of the JR SURVIVOR of round 5.

i think i’ve worked out what i’m not doing at supercoach. that is scoring over 2350 points each week. that was the benchmark for the teams who scored immunity for next week. clearly teams that are better than mine and deserving of proudly wearing the immunity necklace this week are:

Div 1 – Dontblushbabbie (2395)
Div 2 – Donut forsake me (2390)
Div 3 – McBasketball (2369)
Div 4 – Wah Wah FC (2322)
Div 5 – Goobers (2369)
Div 6 – Cardinal Wor Pel (2351)
Div 7 – Kades (2349)
Div 8 – Maxs_Maggies21 (2361)
Div 9 – Pretty Average (2392)

The above teams are safe for Round 6.

Unfortunately, the following teams are at the other end of list and have been eliminated this week.

Its always sad to see a few of our community favorites get eliminated.

Div 1 – Iridium192, Deetime21, Superchumps & Smichailaros

Div 2 – The Dogs Bollox, Vicwood, Morning Fresh & Hard Balls FC

Div 3 – Nundah Nellies, Crams crappers, Spannerheads FC & Backthesash

Div 4 – Assassins, Naurulz, Austrian Cats & STANS STARS

Div 5 – Fango and Lis, El-Duderino, Bri’s Pies, White Lions, Little Creatures & Fyfe 4 Lyfe

Div 6 – Neale before me, cogs94, Evil Ka-Ziebell, chestmilk & The Dependables

Div 7 – Corps de Lear, demonsdelight, ON THE RIGHT TRAC & prayin in a Parish

Div 8 – Bitter Emus, Dockers2013, Vic Britta & Vicwood

Div 9 – You B’stards!

The above teams have been eliminated from their groups.

Good lucj everyone for this week.

thanks fellas.

Russty_

Knew my days were numbered, thanks for running this again Derek, it was fun while it lasted 🙂

Hedski

God I dunno what I’m gonna do this week..fkn panic.
Sunday teams shit me to tears.

JugHead

I think sometimes its about what you don’t do. And thats bring in some spud that scores 35 points for one week, then clogs your bench for the rest of the year.
Couldn’t agree more about Sunday teams…but I’ve ranted enough about it.

Derek

agree. don’t bring in a spud rookie just to fill a hole this week. wait for the better JS rookies, they will come

TommyC99

Are Mansell or Prior potential options this week? Scoring and JS look pretty average but staring down the barrell of a 0 with clark and highmore. Or would you just cop the 0? Id be trading berry or fyfe (loophole).

Last edited 1 month ago by tommyc99
Rick Grimes

A donut is probably better than a rookie who scores 45 and is out next week.

Russty_

Hi Tommy, don’t think Mansell lasts long, not sure with Prior, was considering myself, he did get a 65 last week.

david

If Prior hadn’t have kicked 2 goals he would have scored in the 20’s like he did the week before.
Based on stats only his first game (23) was better than his 2nd. He actually had 1 more disposal, 1 less mark, 2 less frees for, 1 less free against (and 2 goals) in his second

Russty_

He got the 23 in round 1, wondering if he got injured then or just butchered it?

DEESNUTSRBIG

T.Highmore playing in the AFL or VFL?
StKilda play Port Sunday night but the reserves (Sandringham V Port Melb) play 2.30 Saturday.

DEESNUTSRBIG

Anyone got the emergency on Tony Scott hoping he can somehow punch out a 70 tonight?

Russty_

Sure have mate, the way they release teams this year ,need any advantage we can get.

Rick Grimes

Ditto. It’s a long shot but you gotta be in to win!

JugHead

I wish……. He’s on field. It’s all hands on deck this week.

Russty_

Nice 1st quarter Jugs, hope he can post something decent tonight.

Rick Grimes

Are we taking the 65? My other option is Rowe. 79 last week.

Russty_

Yeah I did Rick, Rowe could crap the bed, you never know.

Pman

Massive holes in Defence this week with Ridley out and Bench options Jones and Park injured and still no word on Highmore. Any Saints fans think he’s a chance this week? Has he been named in St Kilda’s Reserves? Only Rookie defender on the Bubble is Mansell who doesn’t fill me with confidence as far as scoring capacity and JS. Seriously considering copping 2 donuts, holding onto my trades and and basically conceding losses in all leagues. Anyone else with similar issues?

Russty_

Pretty much the same issues Pman…can’t find the VFL team lineups anywhere, what’s up with that !

TommyC99

I read from the supercoach afl facebook page highmore hasnt been named in the VFL. Promising sign surely?

holty01

Fingers crossed 🤞 Tommy. Fantastic pick up mate

JohnDJ59

Word has it he will be the sub.

TommyC99

oh really? I’ve benched clark and fielding highmore thinking he defs couldnt be the sub.

JohnDJ59

Emergency, so could still be the sub.

Russty_

Yeah hope so Tommy, my backline needs some major help.

JugHead

Geelong VFL match is a curtain raiser to the AFL game. Of the 4 Cats emergencies, Narkle is the only one named in the VFL squad.
Clark got zero game time last week. Can’t see why they would set him up for zero game time two weeks in a row.

Russty_

If he’s the medical sub it’s not really a choice though is it Jugs?…it depends on someone getting injured.

holty01

Oops, apart for round 1, I have had the vc/C on Macrae all year. For some unknown reason I decided to go Gawn into Grundy with their matchups. Think it should be very simple for the rest of the season. Simply Macrae/Gawn from here on.

JohnDJ59

I thought it must have been so you would have the same match up as mine Holty.

PeteB

Love the Dogs. Have all of McCrae, Bont & Dunkley in my side. I know it’s not advisable to have three from the one club in your side but I just couldn’t help myself. Always have the VC on McCrae but someone said to go Dunkley so I did. Still a half to go to see which one ends on top. Looks like all 3 will blitz again anyway.

TRIGGA HAPPY

That’s how I am rolling this year. Though took macraes 140 last week as VC cost me 4 leagues wins as others had thd C on Gaen. Its that close this year.

david

Q1
Toby Green 2k, 3hb, 1mk, 1 goal, 2 contested pos, 1 clearance at 100% de = 23
Joch Bruce 1k, 2hb, 1mk, 1 goal, 4 contested pos, o clearance at 33% de = 28

CD gave Bruce 4 contested possies for the quarter but he only had 3 possesions in total. Anybody who says that supercoach isn’t rigged or a purely luck based game is kidding themselves Bruce had 125% CP

david

Awaiting for approval

Full stats in blocked posy
In Q1 CD gave Bruce 4 contested possies for the quarter but he only had 3 possesions in total. Anybody who says that supercoach isn’t rigged or a purely luck based game is kidding themselves Bruce had 125% CP

david

Basically in Q1 Toby had mores disposals, equal marks and goals and more clearances than Josh Bruce. Bruce went at 33% and Toby at 100% de.
Somehow Bruce scored 20% more than Toby for the quarter.?????

Russty_

It’s like trying to learn all of the Japanese Kanji….you’ll never learn them all or exactly what they mean 🙂

david

This is why I find Supercoach scoring frustrating.
Isaac Cumming   63SC – 6Kk – 4Hb – 4Mk – 4Tk – Frees 0/1 – Goals 0.0 – MG 118 – CP 4 – CL 0 – de 90%
Lachlan Ash    59SC – 8Kk – 6Hb – 5Mk – 2Tk – Frees 0/0 – Goals 0.0 – MG 150 – CP 3 – CL 1 – de 100%
Toby Greene    56SC – 7Kk – 4Hb – 4Mk – 2Tk – Frees 1/2 – Goals 2.0 – MG 305 – CP 3 – CL 1 – de 90%

Russty_

The thing Fanfooty or whatever doesn’t tell you is how many kicks or handballs were effective or ineffective in a player’s score. Also mark uncontested = 2, contested = 6 or 4 uncontested (from opposition)
Effective kicks are worth 4 points whilst ineffective are worth 0, Handballs 1.5 vs 0. Greene got 2 goals worth 16 and then 2 x fa worth -8
It does my head in too much trying to work it all out.

Russty_

My reply is “awaiting for approval”…so I guess it’ll be there in 3 days or so.

Teague Train

With Flynn only being 40 odd at 3/4 time, I can’t straight swap Hickey to Grundy, so do I hold my trades or trade 1 of Clark or Campbell, I have cover on both lines (Kozi/Highmore and Powell)

Russty_

Trade Clark this week and Campbell next week.

Russty_

I think that Bruhn kid might need some time in the 2nds, can’t seem to get much of the ball. For a high draft pick he’s not exactly delivering, might need another year or two at the lower levels.
P.S do something Flynn!….you were 28 after one quarter ffs.

Where the fk is everyone tonight?…it’s like the first episode of the Walking dead or something.

JugHead

Busy moving magnets around for the 2,836,543 permutations of what Sat night team selections could cause….

Russty_

Dunkley gone now for god knows how long…can’t wait to run out of trades by round 16.

JohnDJ59

I suggested to Tim Michell on twitter that we have 5 injury trades on top of our 30, I don’t think I asked for enough, Dunkley will be my 6th injured player.

JohnDJ59

Could be season ending, might need to have surgery.

Shake n bake

Dunkley popped a shoulder

Rick Grimes

So Dunkley is a trade. Great.

Bob Butter

Was that close to upgrading Campbell to him this week. Decided to downgrade instead, thank god. Don’t think I could of handled it after swapping Daniel to Ridley last week.

JugHead

I can’t believe he went back on (not even taped) and popped it out again. Thats gonna get airplay.

Bob Butter

Especially at that stage of the game. Was totally unnecessary

Simplord

Macrae gets +5 points for a mark, 50m penalty and goal. CD is a joke, been so inconsistent this year.

Bob Butter

Noticed that. It’s ridiculous that Bont and Macrae were only separated by 10 points, yet a 60 point Fantasy differential. Like you said, Macrae gets hardly any points for that, but Bont got nearly 20 points when he snapped his goal. I wish there was more of a clear cut scoring system where kicks are worth X amount, HB X amount etc, regardless of how ‘influential’ someone personally deems an action to be. Obviously that system would have its own flaws as not all kicks or handballs are created equally, but I feel like it would provide more clarity than the current system which is honestly unexplainable most weeks.

Kevin Du Plessis

I always used to say that Pendles mom was working in supercoach scoring dept, seems like Bont’s mom has taken her place. Makes him a must have 🙂

Russty_

Remember, they had to replace the regular CD crew with whatever homeless toothless, jobless, brainless replacements they could find after the 2020 crew left to take care of their families because of Covid. The newer crew seem to make a lot of their decisions based on their stunted emotions.

DEESNUTSRBIG

On another topic remember the AFL score review operators.
Incompetent AFL still cant even pony up for some decent camera’s for the goal line.

https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-2019-widespread-discontent-among-score-review-operators-over-afls-handling-of-system-and-criticism/news-story/6c3ce98d0f258dbf354eab1baa42c5ad

Bob Butter

Can definitely tell who’s in their sides and who isn’t most games. This is why I love the NFL fantasy scoring system. You know exactly what a player is going to score based on their performance, no biased BS.

Russty_

I wish I liked American Football Bob, for fantasy, cause that would sure be refreshing, I mean I like the game, but have no idea how the fantasy scoring system works. It would be a nice change if it was all scored unbiassed

Bob Butter

You essentially get 1 point for every reception, 1 point for every 10 yards gained, and 6 points for scoring a TD. QBs get 1 point per 25 passing yards, and 4 points for a TD. It’s a fool proof system that works great.

demonsdelight

So that;s where stkilda recruit from

Russty_

I’m sure Stkilda will smash the Demons neil…in 2148

demonsdelight

not while you have a teamful of KENTS that’s with an E Russty old boy

valens57

He gave away a 50m pen at the resulting centre bounce.

Bob Butter

He was on 140 before the mark, 50m penalty and goal, ended up on 140 after giving away the 50. So entirely the mark and goal counted for nothing

johnno1987

I have no idea how he got downscaled from 143 to 140 either. Bloody disgrace. He was phenomenal last night.

Lazza

Clark, Waterman and Brockman all named in the VFL Teams. Highmore and Koschitzke have not been named in their VFL teams

holty01

Surprised Waterman got dropped. Thought he was alright.

Russty_

I’m starting a petition, a petition to secure 10 more trades for us this season so we actually have a chance of finishing the season without running out of trades, a petition I will submit to the Herald Sun administration. According to Noam Chomsky, any real change in the historical world was only achieved by ordinary people standing up for themselves and demanding change…and not accepting anything less.
If you would like to have your say, and appeal for an extra 10 trades to be included in this year’s current Supercoach season, then sign the petition by stating your Herald Sun user name and Team name. Mine is….Russty – Superchumps join me and let’s get some numbers together and maybe make a difference. The more names and team names we have, the more power we have to maybe effect a change.
The only reason the mases don’t influence the rich and powerful most of the time is because the masses can’t focus long enough to effect a change, through strength of numbers.

JohnDJ59

John, Black Flag. The season is over if we don’t get compensated for all the injuries that are affecting our teams.

gator59

Colin… The Instagator

Russty_

Thanks John and Col, another 1998 and maybe we’ll be able to make them take notice.
Don’t be apathetic people…register your vote and I promise I’ll submit it to the relevant authority.

Larry. RawTigers.

holty01

Maybe I’m one of the minority who hasn’t run into many issues. I still like the 30 trades.

JohnDJ59

I still think we should have extra for injury trades. I suggested 5, only to be used on injured players.

I’d also encourage everyone to provide feedback by clicking ‘Help’ > ‘Contact us’ > ‘Feedback’ on the main SC page.
I have just asked if someone is in contact with the AFL about how rolling team annoucements is killing enjoyment of the game. It’d be great if others could provide the same/similar feedback.

Daniel

Thoughts on the best trades to make this week?
Clark to Lachie Jones (can loop Kosi/Highmore for the next few weeks) + Warner to Neale
OR
Clark to Mansell or Prior + Warner to Oliver
OR
Warner to McCreery + Clark to Lloyd

JohnDJ59

L.Jones is out injured for 4 weeks.

JugHead

Yep. And 5000 odd teams traded him in and didn’t reverse it in time.

Lazza

Do we take MaCrae’s 140 ?
Or hang out for Gawn (vs the Tigers)?
Got burnt last week doing the same.

holty01

I’d always take 140. Even if Gawn goes 160, it’s only 20 points. If he breaks down first quarter, you could lose 100.

JohnDJ59

I took the 148 from Dunkley last week after having the C on Max. It was the right decision at the time, but not in hindsight. Normally anything over 130 is good enough. The way injuries are going this year it’s better to take the points than hope for more.

Lazza

Cheers guys .. welcome Captain Brockman, or maybe Ridley..

Rick Grimes

People need to prepare for Flynn rotated next week. Mummy sure back in unless unfit.

David C

I held Danger through his suspension. The logical trade for him this week was to Dunkley, 1092 people did that trade. I would have if I didn’t have so many problems with my defense, used dpp to trade Danger to Ryan instead.

Overall, 5440 people traded in Dunkley this week. It’s a cruel game at times.

Lazza

Had to go early on McCreery to avoid a FWD donut today… don’t see any reason he won’t be selected to play ..

Shake n bake

Hell play

TRIGGA HAPPY

Looks like Duncs is a trade didn’t look good.
Check out this list from the “fire sale” team.
Rowell, caldwell, young, heeney, butters, hickey, buddy, cerra, dunkley (buddy and duncs traded in last week 🙄)
Thats what you call unrelenting ….
Could do with 10 extra trades 🤣

TOPHAWK

Its a bloody nightmare Trigga. I am also in this rut where I trade in premos for them to break down a couple of weeks later. Traded in Dunkley last week. Got 280 points out of him and now I have to trade him out. Incredibly frustrating. 10 extra trades would fix a few holes in my teal of swiss cheese. Cheers TH

Jordan

Will have a donut in the fwd this week. Am looking at bringing in either macrea or mccreary for Clark via a swing.
I’d much rather have macrea, but don’t want to go against the #1 rule of waiting for a rookie to be on his bubble.
What are the communities thoughts?

Ps: doing this trade will allow heeney and Grundy in (for Flynn if dropped) next week

K.Sinny

I was thinking the same as you but ended going McCreary because I can always get MacRae next week.

PeteB

Really don’t know why Dunkley came back on the ground and really annoyed by it. Looks like I’ll have to downgrade to Dusty next week grrrr. Tempted to switch a few players around and bring in Walsh but that risks leaving the forward line too light on.

JugHead

Lol…..ok…..based on current scores averages, I suppose we could call Dusty a a downgrade…
Im sure he would at least prefer to be called a sideways.

PeteB

Hah was a bit tongue in cheek. Has concussion now so I’ll downgrade to Zorko instead lol

Shake n bake

Fredrick to debut def Port

Shake n bake

Clarke takin out of the vfl

Hedski

Jeez, Clark and Campbell are both subs, both could come on score 10 and lose cash.
If I hold Clark and he doesn’t get on field and Highmore isn’t named I’ll cop two jam filled bastards.
Dunno what to do but times running out.

gareth

a guy im p0laying has clark as capt ( trying loophole Mccare score and must not of checked before the game started) if he doesn’t come on as sub does his 0 count?

Hedski

Pretty sure if he doesn’t come on field your opponent will get Macraes VC score

Hedski

But if he does come on and score 20 that will be his captain’s score

gareth

thats what i thought, he gets a game to his tally so he should get 0 – lol hopefully he comes on soon

Hedski

I traded him to Lever just before the bounce.

JugHead

And on comes Clark. Early in the last quarter.

Cobee Bears

I am guessing from J Kelly’s score he had 0 CBAs again? I wasn’t able to watch the game. Can someone explain to me how a struggling team fail to play a premium midfielder of the competition in his best position?

Josh

Missed making trades by 5 seconds so here’s hoping clark get’s on early and Highmore plays or I’m in some serious $#1T!!

Rick Grimes

So Gulden is a hard sell. Warner hold.

holty01

I couldn’t believe the amount that traded them out this week. Maybe they knew something I didn’t.

holty01

And to think I almost replaced Berry with Robertson this week. I think he is a gun but reluctant as fear for his JS. Probably locking a spot in the side for a while now

david

Cripps is finished as a supercoach relevant player.
He was OK when Carlton only had 1 other good player but now Carlton have 4 good players Cripps is highlighted as slow, indecisive, atrocious skills and a tiny tiny tiny tiny football brain.

Carlton are very lucky that the big spuds contract runs out this year maybe they can get Merrett with the money that they save from not having Cripps.
He should go to north at least he’ll look like a good player among that group of try-hard never-will-be’s

Hedski

Crippa is killing me, 16 disposals for 31 points.
A missed goal and all his handballs going nowhere.
Farking get going big fella.

Shake n bake

9 clangers to 3qtr time

JohnDJ59

Highmore an emergency.

holty01

That’s crippled me John. Took the punt and thought he would play so left Laird in my midfield. Regretting it now. All to save a trade. Now will have to consider trading him out to stop the 🍩

Shake n bake

I put it out there l was hearing he wasn’t going to play

JohnDJ59

I said further down that there was a chance Highmore was going to be the sub, meaning he was not going to be in the 22. Not sure what would be worse, being the sub and coming on in the last Q or not playing at all.

holty01

Not your fault mate. I always knew there was a risk he wouldn’t play. I took the punt and hasn’t paid off.

holty01

Well I’ve just witnessed arguably the best quarter of football for the year by an individual in Zorko and SC score him 34 points. How on Earth can some individuals score over 60 in a quarter and only have half the impact that Zorko had? I checked his score at 3/4 time expecting his score to be 100+ but he is somehow only sitting on 81.

Shake n bake

I did the same 🤬🤬🤬

Rick Grimes

Cripps is such a stinking turd in my team. I want rid but others keep getting injured. Painful.

david

He is a the most overrated player in the comp. 4 kicks 21 handballs and 11 CLANGERS!
All of his kicks were the usual rubbish but to have 9 handball clangers is poor for even for the Canberra under 12’s.
Contract year and I doubt that carlton will try to match any offer that he gets. Saints might offer him 1.3mil p/season

Derek

I don’t even like him as a player, but he finds a way into my team every year

Russty_

He’s a never again for me…I traded him out about 2 weeks ago.

Shake n bake

Slowest player in the league

david

That ex-collingwood president has to be the worst commentator in the game. The dopey spud called at least 19 of the players in the carlton brisbane game by the wrong name.
For 3 quarters Levi Casboult was Levi Greenwood and for the whole game he couldn’t tell the difference between McLuggage, McInerney and Rich. How the hell do you get those 3 confused 50 times in a game?

david

Gawn the new CD darling.
Getting a bath of Nank but still manages to be gifted more SC points than Nank despite his team losing. If Max was scored by CD with the same rules as Petrevski-Seton he would struggle to break the ton each week.
(SPS 15 kicks, 4 hballs and 7 marks at 73% for only 58 SC)
GTF out of here CD!

HeraldSun should be forced to identify all of the players that will be given free points. Max is a good ruck but Melbourne would be just as good with Treacy as their ruck, Oliver and Viney make Max look a lot better than he is.

I was watching game and as a non – Gawn owner was thinking that was a quite quarter by Max. Then I looked at the points and saw he was on 49 at quarter time. That does seem a bit over the top

Derek

Scaled to 54

JohnDJ59

Max was about 100k more than Grundy and has scored about 100pts more. What was better, paying the 100k extra for the 100pts so far or saving the 100k for another player.

david

I used the 100k to get Tex instead of Brockman so I’d say that saving the 100k was far better

JohnDJ59

That was a good get David, I missed out on the Tex train, wasn’t too sure about the 200k-300k players and have paid the price.

Russty_

Thumbs up for that deal.

Shake n bake

I’ve got max but wow we 54 at qtr time 🤔🤔

david

LOL 14:30 2nd qrtr Lynch beats Gawn in ruck contest and it results in a tigers point. Max goes up by 9 points?

holty01

I’ll give you some advice David, stop looking at the live updates of the scores. It drives you insane. I’ve stopped doing it now and only look after the game or each quarter. I am a far happier person for it.

Shake n bake

I do the same Holty. But when l seen Gawn in 54 l nearly fell over

david

Biggest tosser ever to play VFL/AFL?
Nathan Jones, he has his own name tattooed on his lower back. I suppose that’s so Max knows which mid he’s shagging in the showers

Russty_

Hahaha, you’re in fine form tonight mate, I am also regretting the fact that I don’t have Gawn.

Russty_

Go Tommy Powell…there’s a good rookie! 🙂

JohnDJ59

JJ not bad either.

Russty_

Yes mate Jordon with an O is killing it! 🙂

JohnDJ59

Happy to have both on field for quite a while yet. Both should get a good run with their teams. Good to see you spelling his name right Russty, they get it wrong even on twitter.

Russty_

Jackson’s a bit of a ripper for your blokes John, I’m liking the way the Dees are playing this year, I think they’re genuine contenders.

JohnDJ59

We did really well in the 2019 draft.

TOPHAWK

He is a good boy. Got Jordon on field too. Norf must think it is a home game Russty. No crowd! LOL

Russty_

Haha, apart from North being Garbage this year, how good has Ziebell been though?…career best year as a defender go figure.

TOPHAWK

We both started with Ziebell. Huge bonus starting him. He has more then doubled in price in 5 weeks. Hahaha

Russty_

Woohoo!

Russty_

Hey guys, does anyone have Lek’s contact email?, I used to have it, believe it’s a hotmail address. I want to get in touch regarding this petition for the extra trades.
Cheers.

demonsdelight

Shoot me an email mate

Russty_

Will do mate.

JohnDJ59

I asked him on twitter, said you were after it.

Russty_

Thanks John.

JohnDJ59

I just put up lek’s email and it is awaiting for approval.

Russty_

Thanks John appreciate it mate, I got it from Neil and have already contacted Lek, you may as well delete mate cause Awaiting for approval can take several days…aka pain in the booty.

JohnDJ59

I just tried and I am no longer able to edit the comment.

Russty_

Yeah that ‘new feature’ kind of shits me too…why?…just why?

Rover

You can’t really think this will ever happen? How would it be fair for the players who have been super conservative with trades to start the year. I’m not one of them, but they’d be getting ripped off

JohnDJ59

The only ones that have been conservative are the ones lucky enough not to have many injuries. If it wasn’t for injuries I would have only used 3.

Russty_

It may not happen but I think it’s worth a try, it would mean the ones who were “super conservative” with trades maybe be able to splurge a bit. I genuinely think this new game style and less interchanges implemented this year is causing more injuries. The way this season is going, there might not even be many good players left to pick, even with extra trades.

JohnDJ59

I’m over my anger from last night Russty, with Dusty now missing next week, I’ve decided this season is just one big sh%t show and unless there are changes to the trades next year, to compensate for the increase in injuries, this will be it for me. I’ll keep going for the sake of the leagues, but I’ve lost all interest.

Russty_

I know exactly how you feel John, and didn’t expect to feel this way after the crapshow last year, but this year is even worse because of the rule changes and no trade compensations. Every single week it’s a major injury to a Premo player and there’s no way we can hope to enjoy this season without some kind of relief…in the form of trade compensations.
HS will lose all the current subscribers they have if they refuse to adjust their current formula, it’s supposed to be fun…it’s far from that this year.

TOPHAWK

Does anyone own David Mundy? He seems to get younger over time. He is playing some serious football.

Russty_

I have him in my draft side, picked him up for a song too, he’s having a renaissance as a 35 year old fart.

JugHead

Got some homework this week. Since the preseason, the ideal forward line had Dunks and Danger in it. Gotta start looking at a few others I hadn’t considered now…….
Would be surprised if Dunkley makes it back this year. And Danger would be a risky pick when he gets back.

Russty_

Such a shame about Dunkley Jugs, the injuries are killing me this year.

holty01

Who is this D Mundy fella? Is he the son of that old Mundy from Freo years ago? This bloke is proof age is no limit.

Russty_

If he kicked a bit more he’d be on 150 right now

Russty_

Chapman really crapping the bed at 3/4 time, jeez I hope he can pull his finger out for the last quarter.

demonsdelight

happens with the young kids

holty01

I’m just happy he is a warm body. Any score will help my round so far

Russty_

Ziebell is quite simply unbelievable…….
166 points
32 kicks. 5 handballs, 14 marks, 5 tackles, 617 metres gained, 6 contested possessions, 91% efficiency from 71% gametime.
If he was actually a defender this year he’d be kicking all the other defender’s asses score-wise.
If he’d started his career as a defender, he’d already be the greatest defender of all time. 🙂

Russty_

169 points actually, I could’ve edited that if I could still edit.

Kat

I have Ziebell envy. Oh how I wish I started with him instead of Dow

Russty_

Hi Lek / Admin, can you please restore our ability to edit our own comments with no time limit imposed please? Let’s just keep this place a no pressure place, sometimes we make comments we’d rather edit a bit later and not having the ability to do that takes away from the free choice experience from this site that we all became used to over the last few years. No one likes changes like that, that limit our freedom.

TOPHAWK

I agree Russty, this format is scheize. Much preferred the previous platform we had a couple of years ago. Intense debate I think it was called. This WordPress platform is retarded. LOL

Hedski

I think the lads should look into Discord, vastly superior.

demonsdelight

It is safer though TH When was the last time we had trolls here .Pity we can’t have both but I do enjoy the site better troll less NDD

TOPHAWK

Morning community. Does anybody know what the story is with Jack Ziebell? All I heard is that he copped a heavy knock late in the game against Freo. Was it a knock to the head, or another kind of knock like a corkie etc? We cant afford to loose Ziebell indefinitely. If he misses a week under the 12 day AFL concussion protocol that I can live with, but if he misses weeks it will be an unmitigated disaster having to deal with Dunkley also. Does anyone have any intel? Ziebell was born to be a defender. He revels in that role. He has been unbelievable. Cheers. TH

holty01

I didn’t see it but heard it was a heavy knock and was no point putting him back onfield due to game being over. Haven’t heard anything about concussion so he should be ok.

holty01

Since Highmore is now unlikely, I’m looking for 2 rookies in either the backline or midfield. I’m struggling to find 2. Best options seem to not be on the bubble. I am now seriously considering dropping Ridley for Steele. I know it’s insanity since Ridley should be back next week but also grabbing a rookie not guaranteed to hold their spot and not on the bubble is worrying. What’s everyone doing?

TOPHAWK

Gday Holty. I am using one trade this week. I decided to punt de Goey to Finlay Macrae early. I need to raise huge cash to trade Flynn straight up to Gawn next week. I reckon Finlay Macrae is a fair bet mate. He had 18 disposals in his debut in Perth last week. He was nervous and used the pill a little poorly which contributed to his 41 SC score. If he tidies up disposal today against Essendon, he could easily score 70 SC or more. His brother Jack Macrae would be advising and mentoring him too. I am taking the punt on Finlay Macrae. Hold the Ridler I reckon and go early on a rook. Just my take. Cheers. TH

holty01

Thanks Hawk. Macrae is the only certainty I think. He was always coming in. I just need 1 more to stop the 🍩. Kosi a option but not sold on his scoring ability and is now 150k+. I do like the look of Rantall but my trade needs to be done before the first game so will he be the sub?

TOPHAWK

Ahhh OK. You have already traded in Finlay Macrae. Was not aware of that. Your options are very limited on the rookie front after Macrae. Kosi? Pass……..Josh Worrell has been selected as an emergency for Adelaide. On the off chance he is a late in and not the sub, perhaps consider him. He is a tall intercept type player who goes hard at the ball and is fast. Should be a SC friendly player. Other than that, everything else is super speculative and eating one donut today may be the medicine you need to take. Cheers. TH

holty01

Oh no, think I may have ruled out Kosi too quickly.🤦

TOPHAWK

3 goals and 56SC for Kosi. You cant make it up if you tried. TH has egg smeared all over his face.

Hedski

I traded Campbell and Clark for Mansell and Lever yesterday, hoping Mansell gets another 3-4 weeks before Vlaustin comes back, make some cash before L.Jones comes back in, also Houli will probably pop a calf soon so that might keep him safe.

Last edited 1 month ago by hedski
Hedski

Playing you in “Holy Grail” Holty, I see you got Rantall in early, tossed and turned on doing that myself (he’s a local boy from the ‘bool) but ended up taking Mansell.
Hope he works out well for you, goddam running machine who I’ll look at next week or two.

holty01

I heard he is an elite athlete. The game should suit him and the pies need some run. Hopefully he holds his spot for a while

Shake n bake

Will need to get it on the outside really not much of him. LIkes to run hope he gets the minutes.

Hedski

You at the game Shake?

Shake n bake

Yes Hedski

Hedski

Enjoy Mate, so good having crowds back

GJS

Hey Community
Anyone know much about the job security and scoring potential of Port’s Frederick and Pie’s Murray – both debuting today
May have to late trade Highmore to tone early to avoid a donut in a close league game

GJS

Make that Pie “Murphy”

TOPHAWK

Who onfield between Rowe and Bergman? What are others doing?

Derek

I had to put Rowe on.

Fullerton, Brookman and Campbell not playing.

Throw in Highmore, Sweet, Berry and JClark (and Ridley) all not playing, the cash generation and on field options are very slim

JugHead

It wouldn’t take much for the backline dumpster fire to spread to the forward line next round………
Dunkley and Danger gone long term.
Dusty looks like he will need a week out. I’m assuming only one.
Ziebel got a head knock.
Tex is playing with a “low-grade” calf issue.

Maybe I could sacrifice a virgin to the SC gods………….

Hedski

I’d planned Dunks to Dusty, might have to bite the bullet and get Tobias in, not sure who else there is.

PeteB

I’d narrowed my four choices down to Dusty, Tobias, Zorko and Gray. Had decided on Dusty but think I might go Zorko now.

Hedski

Forgot about zorks, nice

TOPHAWK

Shai Bolton? He is cheap as chips and getting loads of midfield pill.

Hedski

Maybe even more next week with Dusty out?

TOPHAWK

Hey Hedski, if you can afford him, Rowan Marshall…….Pumped out 132 SC in a Saints team which got belted by Port. Ssssshhhhhh….Keep it quiet……

Rick Grimes

When is Ryder due back?

PeteB

Argh shit Kosi. I traded you out weeks ago !!

holty01

Anytime Rowe!

Hedski

I should have taken Scott’s 66 instead of fielding Yo-Yo Rowe-Rowe

Hedski

Hopefully snags a couple on the second half

Kat

I took Scotts 66 and missed out on Jordons 82 in the mids so you just never know. I have Rowe on the ground though and you watch McCreery score better (wouldnt be hard. You never know whats going to happen with our rookies

Derek

For every Kosi & Powell, I have a Rowe & a Chapman on field. Rookie roulette has been tough this year

Hedski

Never thought Crows vs Hawks would be the second best game to watch this weekend (Cats smashing eagles comes first).

Rover

Rick Grimes is right
Grundy sucks

Rick Grimes

Never said he sucked. You his boyfriend or something?

Rover

Francis gone now, to add to Hamell earlier. Fallen premos everywhere. How many extra do we deserve Rusty
