Panic Room | Round Ten

Published by Fozdaddy on

Boy oh boy does this excite me. Panic Room is brought forward 16 hours to celebrate teams dropping for the first time in what seems like forever! Thursday Panic Room won’t alway be a thing, since FozDaddy usually has footy training on, but he busted his ribs a few weeks ago and isn’t back training just yet.

Let’s GET INTO IT!

Newz you can Uze

Brisbane has made one change for Friday’s match against the Tigers, bringing James Madden in for Darcy Gardiner and Ryan Lester, who are both out with injuries. Rhyan Mansell has been managed by Richmond, but no ins were listed so that means Jack Ross will not be the sub this week.

Tom De Koning will return to the Blues line-up to assist friend of the show Marc Pittonet in the ruck. Against them will be debutant Ned Reeves ($123,900 RUC). Jack Silvagni will return from his concussion for the Blues, while Levi Casboult, David Cuningham, and Luke Parks come out. Damon Greaves will also come into the Hawks side, with Michael Hartley, Daniel Howe and Tim O’Brien all dropped.

Jordan Clark has been dropped from Geelong’s side again, as has Zach Guthrie and Max Holmes. Luke Dahlhaus and Jake Kolodjashnij returns to the Cats side. Nick Holman, Touk Miller, Alex Sexton and Zac Smith return for the Suns, with Ben Ainsworth, Jack Bowes, Jy Farrar, Darcy MacPherson and Malcolm Rosas all dropped or missing through injury.

Adelaide has named Taylor Walker, Nick Murray and Ned McHenry all to face Melbourne, who has dropped off-season recruit Ben Brown in favour of Luke Jackson. Billy Frampton, WIll Hamill, Andrew McPherson and Ronin O’Connor will all miss for Adelaide.

Lachie Hunter will come in for the injured pair of Pat Lipinski and Easton Wood, while Jarryn Geary and Shaun McKernan return for the Saints. Tom Highmore has been dropped again, meaning many sides may face a doughnut this week, while Ben Long and Rowan Marshall will also miss.

Big news out of Fremantle today was the injury to Andrew Brayshaw. He’ll miss this week with a calf, but Luke Ryan will return for the Dockers. Josh Treacy has also been named after some time out, with Reece Conca and Taylin Duman dropped. Dylan Stephens will return for Sydney, who has managed Justin McInerney.

Now comes the fun part. Sunday will see GWS play WCE. Shane Mumford has been brought into the Giants’ lineup, but Matt Flynn has been named as the starting ruck. Jeremy Finlayson, Nick Haynes, Sam Reid and Zach Sproule have all been named in the extended squad, while Toby Greene and Harry Perryman are the only two confirmed outs at this stage. Jeremy McGovern will miss again this week after just returning, while Shannon Hurn, Liam Ryan, Harry Edwards and Xavier O’Neill all in the extended squad.

Taylor Adams has been named to return from his PCL injury, while Nathan Murphy looks set to also play after his concussion. Trent Bianco ($123,900 DEF/MID) is on debut watch as he’s been named on the extended bench. Lachie Jones is on the extended bench for Port Adelaide and may return from his syndesmosis injury, while Dan Houston, Jarrod Lienert, Sam Mayes, Trent McKenzie and Boyd Woodcock have been named in the extended squad. Tom Clurey, Orazio Fantasia, and Martin Frederick are the confirmed outs.

Patrick Ambrose looks set to return to AFL level after booting six VFL goals last week. Nick Bryan, Ned Cahill and Alec Waterman have been named in the extended squad, with Devon Smith the only confirmed out so far. Atu Bosenavulagi, Bailey Scott and Tristan Xerri are all named in North Melbourne’s squad for the riveting 4:40pm Sunday clash between two great sides.

Aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnd exhale.

holty01

Bloody Highmore. I know he didn’t get much of it but he played on Cameron who he kept to 10 touches and 1 goal. A fair effort I thought for a 3rd game player. 🤞He gets another game.

Russty_

Coach is a tool mate, Highmore’s the future of the club and he brings Geary back in. I don’t get it.

demonsdelight

Keeping Cameron was worthy of a game alone Funny team I am fed up with your club’s selections Russty in Jones out Hughmore ever so reluctantly

Russty_

Tell me about it mate! no way he should’ve been dropped after his first 2 games, he did enough.

david

I’m not suggesting that I have inside knowledge of StKilda but I emphasised last week that Highmore was only a gap filler against a monster forward line.
There is a lot more to footy than scoring well in supercoach and Highmore has a LOT of massive flaws that we are trying to work through in VFL. ATMO he is as far from the future of the club as Roo’s third son is.

The Lost Boys

I was thinking of trading out Flynn if has wasn’t named, thinking he wouldn’t get another game for 3 weeks (2 weeks of Mummy then bye) – but if he plays there’s more cash to be had.
So of course he’s shown as starting ruck but Mummy is back in the squad….
Are the final Sunday teams named Friday night before the game starts?
And lets just not talk about Highmore being dropped….

Rick Grimes

Mummy is cooked. He’s named on the off chance he pulls up ok on the day. But I’m 90% sure Flynn plays.

Lekdog

Sunday teams are announced tonight!

Rick Grimes

Here’s a little teaser. Tom Mitchell’s last 3 scores against Carlton;
164
192
161

Russty_

Sounds worthy of the VC this week mate.

FearlessWCE

will her get tagged by Curnow?

Lekdog

Don’t think we generally tag Titch

Denham

Ha ha, as a fellow Blues tragic I’ve always maintained that the more possessions Titch gets against us the better our chances of winning because it usually means no one else is getting it for them. The flaw in my theory is that we haven’t beaten them in 75 years !!!

Big G

what are the odds of nathan murphy and kachie jones olaying?

Russty_

I think Murphy should play, he only went out injured, was doing ok…but at the same time Collingwood is in crisis at the moment so who knows what will happen.

TommyC99

With Roughead back And moore now playing in defense I don’t see why we need Keane in. I’m saying that port are pretty tall but Maynard played on buddy last week. I’d be a little surprised if Murphy didn’t get picked.

Lekdog

40% haha

Corey

I have 21 Trades Left and 291K Spare

Trade Warner to Zorko (F4) or trade Warner to J.Kelly (M5)
My second trade will be Powell to L.Jones and swing Laird into the midfield

I could trade Powell to any premium midfielder but I feel I will need the cash in the coming rounds with Downgrade Options looking thin, after this week I’ll still have 6 rookies to get off field

Russty_

Nice position you’re in Corey….I’d get Zork first…just in case Kelly breaks this week.

Derek

Kelly might find himself forward to fill the Toby hole

Russty_

Jess Hogan could benefit a fair bit points-wise also…he’s kinda like Heeney though, made of Papier Mache

david

Hogans busted mate 4-weeks minimum

Russty_

Cheers Dave…I just had time to reverse trades in my fantasy team and get Josh Kelly instead…another glass body guy lol

Corey

So after trades the team looks like this with 308K in the bank and 19 trades left

Mills, Lloyd, Stewart, Ridley, Daniel, Jones (Highmore, Fyfe)
Macrae, Oliver, Taranto, Mitchell, Laird, Jordon, Scott, RCD (McNeil, Berry, Sharp)
Grundy, Gawn (Flynn)
Ziebell, Zorko, Impey, Dusty, Bergman, Poulter (Rowe, Waterman)

Hopefully hold next week and then go bang bang bang in the byes use three every week and get to full premium, but as we know nothing ever goes to plan haha

Joe_T

That is a great looking team Corey with so many trades and $$ still left. What’s your rank out of curiosity?

Corey

Pretty average ranked 7,021 missed Impey and Oliver early on went for Brockman and Neale instead I reckon if I got those two right I would’ve been flying. Wasn’t convinced on Oliver’s pre-season and Impey’s but I should’ve stuck with my gut

Joe_T

Ah yeah definitely, both those guys started off well too. You’ve got a pretty strong side now though and with the byes coming up and your number of trades left, could make some real headway up the ranks. Good luck

Corey

Cheers Joe, yeah I always like to save as many as I can early on so I can be aggressive with my trades or use bulk trades to cover donuts in the byes. Been a few injuries though this year so it hasn’t been easy

Russty_

Looking good Corey, good luck for the rest of the year mate, you’re in a position to come home really strong when others are running out of trades.

Corey

Thanks Russty, it’s always great to keep coming back here to Jock Reynolds for all the great content but also the amazing advice and conversations. You guys are just as important to this community as Lek, Patch and the boys who produce the content. Best of luck for the rest of the season everyone I think we’ll all need a little bit of help from the Supercoach gods in the next month! Haha

14HD14

somebody pls help me I do not see a way to avoid a zero in DEF this week haha

Lloyd, Laird, Maynard, Bowes (injured for 2-3 weeks), Kosi, Murray, Highmore (ahh), Frederick (dropped)

only $30k in the bank

Last edited 4 months ago by 14HD14
Soothsayer

It’s time to get Ridley in he’s cheap as he’ll get

Lekdog

Bowes to Ridley and might have to cop a 0

Lekdog

Unless Jones or Murphy is named

david

Lloyd, Laird, Maynard, Kosi, Murray all named so you avoid a donut by swapping Bowes for Ridley and have 5k left for a few beers and a burger

TRIGGA HAPPY

Get around it!
Can I get a HELL YEAH???
Finally! Thursday night teams are back and include Sunday extended teams. 👏👏👏
Spot on. We r on Bianco watch. Def/mid rookie be very handy leading into the byes…..

Soothsayer

It’s great to have those teams isn’t it. No wait, wait , wait ….damn it’s too late.

Russty_

Hell bloody yeah mate!…not so hell yeah Brayshaw is missing, wonder how serious the calf is?…can’t catch a break this year lol

TRIGGA HAPPY

How is that glazier going at your place? Gotta few mirrors to replace.

Russty_

Shit needs to happen I guess mate, it always has to be someone’s turn to get shafted lol. SC seems to be a distant second fiddle for me this year, other priorities have presented themselves. I don’t think I’ve been unlucky..it was choices I made I guess. I still have a glimmer of hope of finishing ok if the injuries will just bloody stop for awhile.

TheAristocrat

Doesn’t seem to be enough said about Guthrie? Only 13% teams, is he the ultimate POD and is it worth Powell & Greene out for Guthrie & Dusty even it it kills my bank but leaves but me a few spots from closing out my team?

Russty_

Definitely mate…will strengthen your team heaps and Guthrie is flying, his scores may reduce a bit when Danger gets back but he’s having a cracking year. 2 power moves right there.

Derek

Guthrie has been helped by Danger missing.

Last week he was picking up plenty of the ball in defence, not sure what that was all about

Cats have a very tough run straight after their bye (we all know they always lose after their bye anyway) Port (A), Dogs (H), Lions (A). Can’t see many 121’s in that lot.

david

124 V Lions
144 v Eagles
132 v Swans
117 v Tiges
Already this year so I don’t see anything that suggests his form will dissipate Derek.
Straight after Port,Dogs,Lions, he’s got Bombers, Blues, Dockers, he could easily average 130 for the 6 games post bye and Danger wont be back for at least 6-weeks

TOPHAWK

What about Lyons or McCluggage? 3.8% and 3.4% ownership respectively. Now them are real PODS. Just a thought. Cheers. TH

holty01

Love both Hawk but that round 12 bye sells it for me.

Lekdog

Both absolute locks…Neale to come back not sure who that effects.

david

Everytime I bring in McLuggage he packs his bags and goes on a SC scoring holiday

Lekdog

I actually thought he was in more teams than that!

Derek

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

This week reminded me of the story of two fellas walking in the forest and come across a big angry bear.

The first fellas slowly bends down and starts tying his shoelaces.

The second fellas says “what are you doing! There is no way we can out run a bear”

The first fellas says “who said anything about out running the bear, i only need to be faster than you”.

This week is traditionally the toughest week in SURVIVOR. So close to the merger into the Champion of Champions group and one bad week can spell disaster.

There were two teams this week who would have been elimintaed except they were holding Immunity.

Well done Holt & DrownEminYaHoney.

Unfortunately, the teams that have been eliminated this week are:

Div 1 – The Scrotums, Rowells A-team, Moneyball but bad & Upyachupa

Div 2 – The Grannies, FraserAmazers, Tophawks, Flock of Gulls

Div 3 – Ithaca, McBasketball, Dangerous Fields & The Phantom S

Div 4 – Tok Magic Dragon, Spuraholics, fishmonger & Wah Wah F.C.

Div 5 – Jim’s Motley Crew, Mad Dog, GoNads, Black Flag, Hawks 2021 & Tickle me pink

Div 6 – Cardinal Wor Pel, Winx’s Buttler, YEAR OF SAINT & Cock Teagues

Div 7 – Macreazies (only one team this week)

Div 8 – WTF, Tom Deliberatore, This Charming Man, Master Of Puppets

Div 9 – The Dependlebles

The following teams are good at Supercoach and they have grabbed the immunity necklace this week with both hands. A great week to have it.

Div 1 – TiddlyWinks FC (2245)

Div 2 – Flight (2249)

Div 3 – FisherPriceisRight (2410)

Div 4 – Peaches (2276)

Div 5 – Jagerbomb (2277)

Div 6 – Headless Zombie (2293 – Back 2 Back immunity)

Div 7 – BOMBERBLITZ (2359)

Div 8 – Saints2021 (2310)

Div 9 – BriansBunch (2202)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Because of the uneven numbers in each division, the following number of teams from each division will be eliminated this week:

Div 1 – 3 teams
Div 2 – 1 team
Div 3 – 0 teams
Div 4 – 3 teams
Div 5 – 6 teams
Div 6 – 3 teams
Div 7 – 0 teams
Div 8 – 2 teams
Div 9 – 2 teams

The only Division to have any eliminations the following week (round 11) will be Div – 5; there will be a further 5 teams eliminated. therefore the only teams playing for immunity this week will be Div 5.

For all the other divisions, the survivors from this week (obviously those with both hands on the immunity necklace & all the teams in divisions 3 & 7) will be progressing through to the champion of Champions division that will start after the bye rounds.

Thanks fellas

Russty_

Bad luck JohnDJ, Tophawks, Tom Deliberatore and WTF Dave…well done making it this far fellas.

TOPHAWK

Yep. My number was up this week. I stuck around for a bit and will be back next year. Cheers Russty. TH

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m a bit sad about it Russty, it was the only thing I had to play for the way I’m going in the Leagues and I hadn’t gone close to getting booted out, but I guessed my time was up with a few games to go last weekend. Not much in it, had a swinging doors moment, put the C on Oliver and I would have survived.

Russty_

It’s all a bit of extra fun mate and thanks to Derek for all his hard work…I didn’t last long this year, there’s still Trig’s happy place for the finals series after SC proper ends too…don’t forget

holty01

Lucky me.

Ryan

Thanks for the update Derek. Out of curiousity, Rowells A-Team in div 1 had the highest score in round 8 of 2317. Was he meant to get eliminated in round 9?

Derek

You are right Ryan. Don’t know how I missed that.

That’s why I don’t eliminate teams until the results have been posted for a few days, in case I miss something like that.

Thanks Ryan

Ryan

No dramas Derek! Live to survive another day haha. You do a great job running this so all is forgiven 🙂

Hedski

Thanks again for running this Derek, didn’t realise until the other day that I got booted 2 rounds ago!

Lazza

Hey Derek, will we have to join a new league when it’s combined? Or does that just happen in the background?

Derek

Yes. A new group. I’ll post the code and team names once we have the final number

S,C tragic

with 3 teams leaving div.4 next week it will be a miracle if I survive, but stranger things have happened.

Derek

You don’t need to outrun the bear

holty01

Gee, to the person on here last week who said don’t bring in Highmore as he will be dropped straight away, I wish I listened.😩 I think my response was I like his JS as I believe they are bringing him in for a reason and I doubt they would replace him with Geary. Ummm, well they dropped him straight away and replaced him with Geary. 🤦

Lekdog

Get that fortune teller back in here!

david

I’m back.
Two or three other pearls of wisdom were in that comment that Holty referred to

david

No worries mate his omission was primarily due to a total lack of a football brain he plays like a kid in under 14’s and is constantly having to be told what to do, where to stand, when to attack and when to defend. He isn’t AFL standard yet

Corey

thinking maybe Bergman is more ready to Cull then Warner I mean Bergman may still make a little more cash yet but surely Warner’s price will start to rise and breakeven drop with his consistent scoring or am I wrong?

Tommy S

If you can afford to trade both by round 13, Bergman has to be culled first simply because he has a bye in 2 weeks, and then warner 1-2 weeks out from his (bringing in a player who has had their bye). However, Bergman has a Rd 3 average of 65 vs Warner’s 60 and a lower BE, so arguably Bergman is currently a better pick. If you do not plan on culling both though through the byes, definitely cull warner given he has the horrendous round 14 bye. Hope that helps.

Corey

Yeah I’m planning on Culling both so I’m thinking maybe go Bergman first then Warner in round 14? Do you think Warner’s price will start to rise again?

Tommy S

I think Warner will be 310-330K range until his bye unless he pulls a big score out again so I’d just cash him out whenever it suits you, preferably after round 12 so you can bring in a player who’s had their bye.

Lekdog

Agree, prime for culling Warner now but wont hurt if you hold for a couple of weeks

TommyC99

Is Lachie Jones must have if he walks straight back in without any 2s games?

TOPHAWK

Probably. Martin Frederick is injured so that should bring Jones with decent JS. That said, we all know what happened to Highmore after coming back last week. Cheers. TH

The Lost Boys

If Jones is back in, would a straight swap from Highmore to Jones be worth doing? Highmore still has money to make, but I don’t see him actually getting a game!

Lekdog

I don’t love that trade but I’m not sure why

Russty_

Probably cause as soon as we trade him out, someone will get injured and then he plays every game and averages 75 lol

Derek

Frawley will get injured

Joe_T

I don’t think Frederick is injured Tophawk, he’s named in SANFL and listed as omitted on AFL site. But safe to say it’s a good sign for Jones if he’s straight back into the AFL side without any SANFL action. For the record, Jones isn’t named in the SANFL side at the moment.

david

Think he’ll be the sub Tommy

FearTheBeard

To my dear community.

Thoughts on the trades?

I am toying with do I get rid of Jiath this week to Lloyd/Doch OR do I get in Zorko for Scott?

I feel Zorko is starting to go pretty well and gives me a keeper in the forwards. Though other side is Jiath is border line keeper. I have been intending to keep him but 2 spud scores recently worry me. I know he could bounce back with 90-100 again so it makes me think get Zorko in. Though then it could be a decent cash loss on Jaith?

FearTheBeard

Another option. Can dump Jaith, push Laird up (in mid at moment) and get Steele?

In essence.

1. Steele in. Dump Jaith, play scott.
2. Lloyd/Doch in. Dump Jaith, play scott.
3. Keep Jaith, Zorko in. (trade Scott)

Lekdog

Option 3 for me if you don’t have a Powell or Warner to move

FearTheBeard

Guess Zorko in then seeing old faithful Lekdog is the only one who throws their two cents in 🙁

holty01

Keep Jiath Beard. Will be great through the byes. if you have trades left, he can be your last upgrade.

The Ranger

Dear SC Gods,
I’m very sorry for whatever I’ve done to upset you but my team resembles a dogs breakfast, I’m running out of trades and I’m bottom or close to it in all of my leagues so if there’s any chance you could stop injuring all my players I’d be very, very grateful.
Oh and if you can have a word with that Hinkley bloke and get L.Jones onfield this weekend you can have my first born.
Thanks in advance! Love you!

Russty_

Hehe looks like it might be you and me Dex, 17th and 18th this year in all our leagues, at least my draft side is killing it this year, I had one week where my draft side equalled my SC side’s score lol

Lekdog

They answered the Hinkley part!

The Ranger

Yep. My first born is in for a surprise…

Hayden

Is Nicholas Murray any good, JS? I’ve got Highmore, Jones and Murphy and looking for another downgrade to afford Steele next week. Would be Kosi to Murray.

Otherwise, might be Jones to Treacy for the Flynn trade in a week or two.

Damo

i have been watching Murray’s numbers in the sanfl and they are very average. i need a rookie this week and i want to know who has the better JS him or Edwards(WCE)

David C

Edwards only gets a gig this week because McGovern is out

Russty_

James Madden could be a good one for next week, Def/Fwd is very handy.

Lazza

I’ve gone Powell to Jelly this week … seriously thinking of going early on Jordan too for either Hogan or Heeney.. thoughts?

dontblushbaby

I’m doing the with Powell & Jelly , I believe he is excellent value , I was at the game last week & he played the Wing / Mid role.
Realise that knobhead is out and he could be put forward again but Finlayson is back in so I’m expecting his role to stay the same, fingers crossed he plays out the year

Lekdog

Hogan injured now so scratch that

The Salt

18 keepers, 4 position left to upgrade

Def: Lloyd, Mills, Short, Daniel, Harmes (Jones, Highmore)
Mid: Macrae, Titch, Fyfe, Tarranto, Laird, Redden, Jordan, RCD (Macrae, Smith, Brockman
Ruck: Grundy, Gawn (Meek)
Fwd: Dusty, Ziebell, Hall, Hind, Bergman, Pouler (H.Jones, Tilthorpe)
14 trades left

Thats if Harmes avgs 93 to 95sc, and Hind 90+ sc from here out.

Will be trying to get 4 uber premos
2 for midfield Oliver and from Guthrie, Lyons, Bont, Steele
2 for forwards Zorko and from Billings, Bolton, McDonald

The Salt

*i left out

Houston D5

Russty_

Nice looking side Salt, I like your pods in Redden and Hind…Hall’s going well too. How’s your rank looking?

G.C.

So, what on earth do I do with Powell? I want to downgrade him to bank his cash, and can’t really upgrade him to a premo instead. Only problem is, I don’t know who to trade in for him.

I’ve got RCD, Poulter, Waterman, Murphy and Jones already. Not really sure who else is out there.
I only need 1 mid rookie on field at the moment (Jordon), so I could go mega-early on Bianco if he’s named. Besides that I’m a bit lost. Byrnes maybe?

Russty_

Maybe just keep him this week

TommyC99

I’m seeing a lot of people wanting to cull Powell. I know his BE is high but he’s a proven rookie scorer in a year with such volatile rookie selections. Is there a case where we hold him this week and assess next week? I’m eyeing off Boak and Cerra and I’m debating whether to pull the trigger now on Boak and hope Bergman doesn’t lose money? Orwait till next week and reassess. I’m very keen on Cerra and I don’t want to be priced out of him if there’s no rookie next week. I have 322k in the bank FYI. What would you guys do??

Last edited 4 months ago by tommyc99
Lazza

Hey TC, Powell isn’t scoring all that well of late . His 45 is around for another couple of weeks which means he will drop coin .. too many fallen premos to ignore .. must will go up whilst Powell will drop. If he scores around. He is a definite trade.
Now Jordan is another story … I really should keep him till his bye .. but I want to move on a sine of those fallen premos.. it’s a dilemma.
I’m waiting to see if LJones is selected before deciding. Otherwise I will trade down with a different rookie.

holty01

He will lose money but I’m tempted to keep him because of his round 12 bye. He will be a warm body for round 13 & 14 where I think we are all searching to field 18

Derek

Powell is not a keeper. Therefore he is a cash cow. He has done his job.

TOPHAWK

Punted Powell to RCD tonight. 250K in the bank. Got Zorko last week. Now I need Mc Cluggage. Another 3 Brownlow votes for Hugh tonigh. He was superb.

PeteB

I’m holding Powell simply because I need to preserve trades. Looking at replacing him or Jiath with Walsh next week who’s likely to lose a similar amount or more in value next week anyway. Already been burnt by trading in players who subsequently become injured enough this year. So if I can go without a week of trading that’s reducing my risk for the pointier end of the season.

Jordan

Getting Dusty for Warner, Powell to Steele for value, Josh Kelly or premo pod Lyons or Guthrie. Thanks

holty01

Tough to say. How is your bye rounds going? Or don’t you care for the byes? Steele out of those but Guthrie’s rd12 bye is appealing

Jordan

Or is Jones a must now he is playing

Derek

Why is Guthrie r12 good. Wouldn’t he be a perfect r13 target, not a r10 target?

holty01

Because everyone should have 18 in Rd 12. You can bring him in Rd 13 but it doesn’t help bringing other Rd 13&14 bye premiums in if your already struggling to field 18.

Derek

I’m doing the Powell to Steele move.

For other trade, Was looking at Warner to Zorko, but I’m not a big Zorko fan, especially after Cass set me straight.

Jordan

Cheers fellas, think I’ll sleep on it.

The Ranger

Well Jones getting a gig means I can avoid a donut.
16 trades left, hold Bowes or sideways trade him to T.Kelly?
Leaning toward holding.

Matt Nolan

I’m holding

dontblushbaby

Jesse Hogan out for 4 weeks if anyone was considering him

holty01

Jones, Waterman in
Murphy still not back.

holty01

I’m thinking I will now pass up on RCD and just get Jones. Maybe a risky move but 180k is now pretty expensive.

Hedski

I’m getting RCD at that price and if Jones holds up this week I’ll likely get him next week at that price, horses for courses Holty, good luck this round mate.

holty01

U2 mate. I’m still undecided what I’m doing. Guess I’ve still got an hour to decide.🤯

Hedski

I’ve gone Brockman and Powell to RCD and Dusty.
Thinking VC Tomahawk into Grundy.

holty01

You got the Hawk? I like that

Hedski

Yeah got him in last week as a bit of a pod, think he’ll come home hard with cats pushing and Jezza in the side.

Russty_

You would’ve missed out on his brilliant 22 points at half time mate…lol, hope he gets a goal or 2

david

L. Jones 2nd round 69 was extremely generous compared to his round 1 61

R1 14 kicks, 3hballs,6marks, 2frees for =61
R2 6 kicks, 11hballs,2marks, 1 free for, 3 frees against=69
That just doesn’t make sense

If he isn’t the medical emergency I’m predicting a sub 50. That’d still make you 40k though

holty01

Good luck all for this round. I have a feeling someone here will take away the $1000 this week.🤞

Hedski

Won’t be me with Brayshaw on the bench Holty, hope it’s you bud

holty01

I’ll be happy to hit 2200 this week mate. I’m trying to get the team sorted for byes so have been slightly neglectful of these next few weeks.

Russty_

Good luck to you too Holty, go well mate

Hedski

Good luck to you Russty, up against you this week, can’t remember the league name off the top of my head, one of JD59’s I think

Russty_

Cheers Hed you too mate..I also have Brayshaw, have you heard how long he’s out for?

Hedski

Sorry for the late reply Russty, Na no idea how long he is out, 1 week hopefully

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Just the one week Russty.

Billioux

Hi Guys, Seymour to Jones. N cox/ J Clarke to Jelly, mainly for Bye factor. I am torn between N. Cox or J clarke, any thoughts welcome.

Hedski

Cox is playing, Clark isn’t..hmmmm.
I’m sure you mean Highmore and not SKINNER!! Said in Super Intendant Charmers voice??

Billioux

LOL..Butts = Seymour. Yep Cox DPP more handy too.

Hedski

Ha ha, Butts, I missed that one (thought it was an autocorrect from Highmore!) good luck this week mate

Billioux

Cheers, you too mate.

Russty_

Good to see you back Billi

Josh

No highmore, mansell or murphy spells danger for the backline

Is mansell down to Jones my best option? Or would I be better off taking the donut and being able to do proper trades elsewhere in my side?

Russty_

May as well go Highmore to Jones Josh, Saints would rather play 34 year olds than young blokes.

TommyC99

Are subs named any earlier now we have teams earlier? I want to use bergman and murphy as a loop but im very very confident both will be the sub

The Lost Boys

Which three to play on the field from RCD, Scott, Poulter, Waterman and Warner?
I’m leaning towards RCD, Poulter and Warner – but Waterman getting a bag against north melbourne is very tempting!

Russty_

You probs already started RCD so I’d say Poulter and Waterman for the reason you said, he could kick a bag…Warner seems to be around the 60 per week mark now.

Derek

You should have been able to start RCD on bench with E

I don’t think 50 is either good or bad, not sure if either Berry or Poutler will do much better.

Nicky

Waterman played midfield in the VFL, he’s gonna be playing Jake stringers role tomorrow I think as that big bodied mid/forward for the dons so I’ll definitely have him on field.

PeteB

What’s the go with Flynn and Mumford in the same team and how will that affect Flynn’s scoring ??

holty01

Think Flynn plays mostly forward.

TOPHAWK

He plays mostly in the ruck and roams the ground. Just my take. TH

dontblushbaby

and Briggs, wait for final teams, don’t be surprised if Mummy doesn’t play , dunno

TOPHAWK

Mumford will do the bulk of the rucking 70% and Flynn 30%. Like Holty, I reckon Flynn will play more Forward. His score will probably drop, but as long as he is out there, I am happy. He can fatten up on my bench.

TOPHAWK

It is time to recognize Zorko “The magnificient”. Another superb performance tonight. He is backing it up after last week. (140) Brisbane closing in. TH

Derek

He looked magnificent

All week I was bringing him in, but held my trade thinking about Using trade to get Jones for cash gen instead, plus he doesn’t treat his gf nice

8/10 teams I’m against this week has Zorko.

ST1974

I have 17 trades left and tossing up which of the following to do:
1) Trade L Young to Jones
2) Option 1 and Powell to one of Wines, Hopper, Langdon or T Kelly
3) Nothing – have full team and adequate bench coverage (except def)

Which way should i go?

Appreciate any thoughts or advice.

Russty_

Hi ST…option 2 puts you in a more powerful position and still leaves you with 15 trades left, not sure if you play for rank or leagues but that move would benefit both.

ST1974

Hi Russty. Thanks for the advice. Playing for leagues more than rank. Which out of the above would you bring in for Powell that would be good for the Round 14 bye.

Russty_

I started with Kelly and suffered his early poor form but he seems to have found some form now.

TOPHAWK

Just be mindful that Lachie Jones might get the dreaded sub vest. Do not trade until final Port team drops tomorrow. Cheers. TH

Maverick

Jones can’t get the vest TH he is named on the bench. One of the 4 emergency will cop the vest. It’s 22 players + a medical sub which comes from the emergency list I believe.

TOPHAWK

You are correct and I stand corrected. It appears Bergman may get the dreaded vest.

ST1974

Thanks TH. I thought the medical sub came from one of the emergencies and not the interchange bench and that Bergman might be the sub for Port. If I am wrong (very possible) then I might have to look at bringing in Murray from Adelaide or Edwards from West Coast who are both named on field. Just not sure about the job security for either Murray or Edwards.

Maverick

No your correct ST.
The vest goes to an emergency player not IC player. Jones is safe

TOPHAWK

I have Jones at D6 so the fact he is safe is a nice bonus. Cheers Mav. TH

TOPHAWK

You are spot on. Maverick is right. Just didnt look at the team line ups closely. I think Bergman will get the vest too. I am going to trade out Bergman today and DPP like crazy to bring in Ridley. Laird to be moved to the midfield to make it happen. Hope you nail your trades ST. Cheers. TH

holty01

Lads, just be careful with this. Earlier in the season the sub vest was put on someone after being named in their 22 because of weather. Although unlikely, I believe the club’s can change this.

ST1974

Thanks Maverick, TH and Holty01. I am looking to trade out L Young and Powell who play in the last game of the round so I might be able to wait until the medical sub is named for Port before bringing in Jones especially if I am planning to also bring in Wines.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Bergman is the sub.

Maverick

Okay so should I go

Option 1: Powell > Steele

Option 2: Bowes > Ridley

I don’t have cover for Bowes so I’d cop a donut if I went TU but not sure about moving a premo on if he’s 1-2 weeks….
Ridley n Bowes may AVG Same here on out anyway

Russty_

I’d get Riddler mate and kiss Bowes goodbye

Maverick

Thanks russty .
I pulled the trigger on this move a couple hours ago. Bowes -> Ridley. Pretty happy with it.

S C tragic

I’m having knee surgery in a couple of weeks I sure hope my team plays better when I get my knee fixed, because all the panicking I’ve done so far ain’t helping.

Derek

You should get a 30% discount for Next year

K.Sinny

Hey community, would love some advice on trades this week.
I’ve got 15 trades and 74.8k in the bank.
Wanting to trade both Bowes and Powell this week but not sure who to get, I’m thinking of trading Bowes down to Lachie Jones and then either Powell up to a premo mid or use dpp and Powell to a fwd like hall or hind leaving me with more cash for next week. Thoughts? Thanks guys 🙂

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I see you went Powell to Oliver, well done on that trade, Bowes to L.Jones would also be a good trade.

The Ranger

VC on Gawn or Oliver?

JugHead

Oliver for me. And that tells me what a strange year it is. Jackson is back so will probably take some Ruck time from Max.

Derek

Oliver

Derek

8 of my opponents had VC on Gawn. Played it safe and also went VC Gawn

The Ranger

Same here Derek. It’s the year that just keeps giving…

Derek

This week it will be a case of those with C on Oliver and those without

Derek

What to do with Kozi?

he is my D7 and Highmore at D8

1) trade to Jones and build the warchest

2) hold Kozi through the byes and trade Highmore to Jones

3) hold Kosi and trade Broockman to Jones and swing laird to guts. One of Jones or Kozi will be on field. Laird swings back when Kozi is traded out after byes

other trade this week is Powell to Steele

holty01

That’s a tough one mate. I’d be inclined to trade Kosi and hope Highmore returns at some point. Rookies imo are there to make you money. Kosi has now done that. If you trade Highmore, you are no closer to full premo and you are down a trade. Having said this, I maybe keeping Powell so sort of contradicting myself but he will be helping the Rd13&14 byes.

Davo

All 3 ideas have merit, I am trading Kozi to Jones purely to make money for upgrades, have resigned myself to being stuck with Highmore all season probably. Lack of good rookies coming and need to make cash ultimately force your hand.

Derek

Decided on option 2.

Kozi is best 22 and will have a few good scores

Jones should also hold his place and make some valuable cash

Derek

Also decided to take RCD’s 50. Could have put either Berry or Poulter on field but couldn’t pick, so took the easy 50.

tbone19

Hey guys, first trade this week was Mansell to L Jones to avoid a donut. Second trade I’m tossing up between Bergman to Hall to get my 5th fwd premo or Powell to any mid and probably miss out on Hall. Would love to get the Bont but feel it’s smarter to grab a cheap Hall and look to get a mid premo for Powell next week. Cheers guys

Russty_

I’d get Bont mate, can’t go wrong.

K.Sinny

Who to trade in for Powell? Can literally get anyone

One Touch Wonder

I got Duncan

K.Sinny

That’s tough mate 🙁 I grabbed Clarry and I’ve chucked the C on him.

One Touch Wonder

Traded in Marshall last week. Went Marshall to Duncan this week.

Russty_

Yikes mate that’s some crappy luck right there, my sympathies to you.

Russty_

Damn I vc’d Oliver and Gawn just got a lazy 54 in the first quarter, maybe 150+ today

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Same.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Might not be a lot of difference in the end.

Russty_

Yeah Clarrie’s looking like going large mate…yay

Lazza

Happy days Russty.. though we both have him .. hoping to get one back on you after last weeks Mare-ette.. trusting that you’re going to fill that 22nd player..

Russty_

Hi Laz, only with Poulter mate, already done my trades this week, Zorko and Hind, yeah sorry about the loss last week..it surprised me too haha

Lazza

Good selections .. I upgraded Powell to Jelly.. have 1 trade up my sleeve .. may bring in LJones, but he’ll sit on the bench.. Good luck mate

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Went Powell to Zorko as my first trade for the round, happy how that turned out. I can now go either Frederick to L.Jones or Bergman to Hind, or neither. What do you think is best, cash generation in Jones, a keeper in Hind or saving a trade for the bye rounds.

Russty_

Hey mate, I’d go Bergman to Hind, most of our fwd lines still have too many rookies in em.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Missed out on Hind, the games Scott and Warner were playing in started before I could decide, one was going to be put on the bench and Bergman is now stuck on the bench. I could still do it, but having Hind sitting on the bench while Scott and Warner are on field would hurt.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

At least Warner is going alright now, Scott on the other hand might be going from my team next week.

Russty_

Yeah Scott’s having a shocker!…hope can get something half decent at least

Keenbutclueless

Had the VC on Titch, with the C on Oliver. The right choice is to take the 142, but it certainly looks like Oliver might blitz that

JugHead

Taking 142 is the right call. I have the VC on Oliver….but can’t loop.

Russty_

Take Oliver’s Keen, could hit 170
Wow!..he’s on 178 with half a quarter to go

F.Macrae is finally good for something – being captain to allow me to take Olivers VC score 🙂

Russty_

Noice!

dontblushbaby

Highmore is the Sub ffs , I was going to put the C on him and take Clarrys score OR do i risk it that he doesn’t get on the ground ??

The Lost Boys

Looking like Clarry might get 200+, so might be worth a huge risk with the C on Highmore. Who is your VC and what did they get?

dontblushbaby

Clarry is my VC , I have the C on Macrae atm, I’m a gambler and will put Highmore as Captain

Russty_

Keeping my fingers crossed for you dbb

Nicky

Oh no…. fingers crossed you changed your mind

Russty_

Uh-oh…Geary injured.

Nicky

Clayton Oliver captain this week makes up for Merrett last week

K.Sinny

Well I think it’s safe to say trading in Clarry last minute and putting the C on him is my best decision in SC.

Kat

Awesome work

Cobee Bear

Putting the C on Clarry is the first thing to go right for me this year!

Mick

Thank you, Mr Oliver.

Derek

That was a good game of footy. Well done Crows. And well done Oliver. Pity he didn’t touch it in the last 5 minutes, might have cracked 250 if he kicked the winner

Thought Gawn was heading to 150 but had a poor last quarter

Russty_

No one’s gettin 9 tips right this week 🙂

Locked and Loaded

When you’re ranked 239 and you put Oliver straight Captain with no hesitation… how many places might I jump

Lazza

That deserves a 200 place jump IMO 😁 … I have Meek as Capt .. Oliver being my VC… finally got something right ..

holty01

If you had the chance to loophole, I’d say you are insane. Lol. But you would think many of the players above you won’t have Oliver as vc or C. If you are heading for 2400+, a massive jump I would say.

Locked and Loaded

Haha yeah I’d call myself insane too I went for a POD VC last night in Dusty which backfired but loved Oliver all week down at Adelaide oval… hopefully a massive jump… on 1900 with Grundy, Sidey, Merrett, Poulter, Jones, Ziebell to come… need some more big scores

JugHead

Was gunna take Lachie Jones instead of Lloyd, Ridley or Daniel to get Olivers VC score.
Using Highmore as the onfield captain. NOW HE GETS MADE THE MEDICAL SUB.
!”£$%^&*((*&U^%$£”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big G

highmore taking his jacket off….

dontblushbaby

Geary back on, phew !

JugHead

Can’t believe how much I don’t want Highmore to play………after weeks of wanting him to play. Those SC gods are laughing.

Russty_

Sorry mate but I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t come on….there’s 4 bandaids on the Fanfooty list now.

Russty_

Looks like you lads dodged a bullet, well done for having the cohones to do it.
