Panic Room | Round 11

Published by Fozdaddy on

After a serious mess created in Melbourne, probably by Kangaroo fans, we were all panicking about a potential extra bye round with Hawthorn and Gold Coast postponed. Then, the AFL has moved a few games and pulled the week back together, so at least we get nine games of footy this weekend. We are still required to panic, despite the excellent work by the AFL

Newz you can Uze

The Bulldogs and Demons will meet in a SuperCoach relevant opening game of Friday night footy between the top two sides. Tim English and Patrick Lipinski return for the Dogs, while Riley Garcia ($123,900 MID) will debut for the Dogs. Damo is very high on him, so keep an eye out. Mitch Hannan, Anthony Scott and Adam Treloar will miss. Christian Salem will replace Neville Jetta in the Melbourne side.

Trent Bianco ($123,900 DEF/MID) will make his debut for Collingwood after dominating in the VFL. Brayden Sier and Jack Madgen will return, while Nathan Murphy has been upgraded from the sub to on field. Taylor Adams, Tyler Brown, and Beau McCreery will miss through injuries and management. Max Holmes is the only in for Geelong, replacing Mitch Duncan.

No changes in the Brisbane v Giants clash, however Sam Taylor will miss for GWS through his injured ankle. Matt Flynn will ruck alongside Shane Mumford again. Rejoice.

The axe has been swung at St Kilda. Personally, I would love to see North topple them. Oscar Clavarino ($123,900 DEF) has been named to debut after last week’s demolition. Nick Coffield, Luke Dunstan and Mason Wood come in, while Jack Bytel, Hunter Clark, James Frawley, Jack Lonie and Shaun McKernan are missing through injuries and omissions. North is unchanged.

Jy Farrar returns from injury for the Hawthorn matchup, with Josh Corbett and Caleb Graham both dropped. Shaun Burgoyne and Liam Shiels will return for Hawthorn at the expense of Oliver Hanrahan, Jaeger O’Meara and an “injured” Kyle Hartigan, who will miss three weeks with a sore elbow. Hmm.

Elliot Yeo will play his first game in almost 300 days on Saturday, while Harry Edwards and Jake Waterman will miss. Jake Stringer returns for the Bombers, with Harrison Jones managed.

Plenty of returning Tigers are expected on Sunday, with Shai Bolton, Josh Caddy, Mabior Chol, Callum Coleman-Jones, Trent Cotchin, Thomson Dow and Dion Prestia all into the squad. Tom Lynch will miss a “medium” amount of time with a knee injury, whatever that means, while Jack Ross, Pat Naish and Marlion Pickett will all come out. CCJ has been named on field, as has Bolton, Caddy, Cotchin, and Prestia. No changes at Adelaide just yet, but Billy Frampton, Will Hamill and Andrew McPherson have been brought into the squad.

Joel Amartey, James Bell, Kaiden Brand, Justin McInerney, Colin O’Riordan, Callum Sinclair and Lewis Taylor have all been named in Sydney’s squad to play Carlton, as Nick Blakey, Robbie Fox and Tom Hickey have been listed as outs. Levi Casboult, Jack Martin, Jack Newnes and Luke Parks have also been listed in the extended squad, with Lachie Plowman the only out just yet.

Andrew Brayshaw will return for Fremantle, with Lloyd Meek, Taylin Duman and Joel Western also named in the squad. Matt Taberner will miss through injury. Put your sun emojis out for Tabs. Orazio Fantasia, Martin Frederick, Jarrod Lienert, and Boyd Woodcock have been named in Port’s squad, with Hamish Hartlett dropped as the only change so far.

CHECK OUT THE CHEAT SHEET HERE

When a price breaks, it don’t Breakeven

What am I s’posed to do, when Imma lose some cash from holding you:

  • 225 – Trent Dumont
  • 171 – Shannon Hurn
  • 156 – Tim English
  • 153 – Andrew Gaff
  • 150 – Zach Merrett

What am I s’posed to say, when you’re making coin by scoring okay:

  • -70 – Cody Weightman
  • -51 – James Madden
  • -32 – Nick Murray
  • -31 – Ned Reeves
  • -27 – Zach Sproule

Oh Captain my Captain

Jeez, take your pick Friday night. Max Gawn v Tim English, has scored 117 and 139 last two against the Dogs. Clayton Oliver scored 204 last week but only averages 100 his last three against the Bulldogs. Jack Macrae has scored 141, 120 and 105 in his last three against Melbourne, while Marcus Bontempelli should play more midfield with Treloar out, and has scored 135 and 128 in two of his last three against the Dees, while the third score was a 93.

Sam Walsh scored 161 against Sydney last season, Brodie Grundy scored 144 against Geelong last season and 137 in 2018 (81 only in 2019). Cam Guthrie was on his way to another ton before hurting himself last week, he’s surely a look in too. Darcy Parish has been dropping big scores recently, and West Coast tend to give up scores to midfielders. Just saying.

We’ll be panicking live on the official Supercoach facebook page (and ours) from 6pm AEST tonigth!

holty01

First time I listened and loved it. Cracking job fellas

TheSir420

Contemplating making one or two trades this round even though I’ve only got 15 left at this stage with 8K in the bank.

First trade would be Scott to Madden (via moving Sharp).
Second trade would be Flynn to Weightman (via Fullarton).

Not sold on the second trade but the first trade seems decent. If I go through with both, I’ll have $343K for some upgrades next round.

For context my current team is:
DEF: Rich, Laird, Ridley, Short, Lever, Highmore (Jones, Sharp)
MID: Oliver, Guthrie, Steele, Taranto, Boak, Jordon, Robertson, Poulter (Collier-Dawkins, Scott, A. Fyfe)
RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Flynn)
FWD: Ziebell, Zorko, Sidebottom, Impey, Bailey, Rowe (McCreery, Fullarton)

Would appreciate any feedback, and best of luck for the round!

ST1974

I am in similar position with 15 trades also and tossing up whether to do the first trade (or Jordon in place of Scott via Brockman DPP) or trade Scott out next week since he is not playing and I can put him on the pine. I don’t have Flynn or Fullarton so can’t really comment on the second trade as I am not sure on Weightman’s job security, however, it sounds like a good move if it gives you the cash to do upgrades next week.

Kane

Titch or Jkelly for m7?

Big G

Titch

Lekdog

Titch

The Lost Boys

Trying to decide which one of Jones, Highmore and Murphy to play at D6 this week – leaning towards Highmore but not sure. What do you think community? Sadly don’t have an option to loophole one of them.

holty01

I’d probably go Highmore, then Murphy.

Lekdog

Agree

holty01

What are the chances of Fin Macrae being made sub tomorrow? Would love to loop him but could backfire very quickly if named

Lekdog

I don’t think they are high, set an alarm for an hour before the game just in case

Jam

Cerra and Bolton, or Oliver and weightman? I figure now or never for Oliver. Cerra could spud vs port in SA, never usually happy hunting for freo there, Bolton after a few weeks out, who knows. Current mids, bont, Mackay, fyfe, merret, Mitchell, tarranto.

Donavan

Id go Cerra & Bolton. Both priced well, both should be keepers. Feel like trading Oliver in this week is chasing points that you already missed.

Maverick

Oliver and weightman for me.
Definitely not chasing points getting in Oliver he’s a rolled gold midfielder whose a lock for top 6 mid. And weightman looks a decent scoring rookie with long term JS.

Lekdog

Cerra and Bolton. Get those rookies off field

YellowNBlack

Anyone worried about Bolton not getting as much midfield time with cotch/Prestia back?

TommyC99

Field waterman or Rowe?

The Lost Boys

Rowe for sure – wish i still had him!

The G Train

Same, traded him for McCreary and since then hes made more money than McCreary since then and also isnt injured. Just one of the many great trades of season 2021.

Last edited 24 days ago by The G Train
Lekdog

Rowe

Hugh

I never expected I’d have Cripps @ M8. His form Has slowly been improving though, hence my holding on to him.

kyle

same as me hugh

Lekdog

I’m looking at trading him IN

Mick

optomising my team puts him on the bench.

I’m holding him because he hasn’t been dropped.

yet.

ST1974

Undecided whether to trade or not this week. 15 trades left and just $12k in the bank. I have a full team on field as well as Highmore, Jordon and Waterman as playing emergencies so I possibly don’t need to trade. If I was going to trade my thoughts are to trade either Scott (can wait a week as he is out with concussion) or Jordon (via Brockman DPP) to Madden and then trading Warner to Hall or Warner to Madden and Jordon to a midfielder under $570K such as Steele, Titch, Cunnington etc.

I would also like everyone’s thoughts on who to VC and C this week. At the moment I am tossing up between Oliver (a week too late I know), Gawn and Macrae for the VC and Grundy, Zorko or Merrett for the C.

Lekdog

Can probably hold.

I like Grundy into Merrett this week

Maverick

Looks like many are in the same boat this week with the dilemma of weightman? Madden? Or why not both? So What is everyone doing with these two this week? Personally I’m leaning towards a double down and going into the byes with a warchest

Johnboy

How many trades left? I’m in the same spot, tossing up Weightman or Madden with 16 trades left. Not sure who to move on for them too, Warner, Jones or Scott?

Maverick

I have 17 trades 185k bank and it’s Powell and Scott out for me.
I’d trade Scott or Jones, johnboy. Scott has a niggle though and omitted Jones managed so should be back.
You’ve held Warner this long you may as well keep him for a warm body through the byes his R14 will be handy.

Lazza

Who will lose you money this week? If you don’t need cover I’d hang on to one of Scott or HJones (?) and trade him next week.

Lekdog

I’m ignoring them myself so the correct play is probably double downgrade

ST1974

I was looking at leaving both with only 15 trades left, however, with Bergman now out and likely to be the sub, i am thinking of bringing Madden in for Bergman. The question is should i upgrade Jordan to Titch now or leave it and bring him in after his Round 12 bye.

Kangaz

Bit harsh on North fans. We don’t have many compared to Essendon.

Lekdog

:’D

G.C.

Am I missing something with Shai Bolton? Seemed like he was talk of the town before the injury, and he’s back this week (68 BE!) and I’m not hearing much about him.
I could go Scott and Warner into Madden and Steele (120 BE), leaving nothing in the bank, or go to Madden and Bolton instead, with $77k in the bank. Bolton seems like one of the better shots at being a top 6 forward from here on, a better bet than Dusty in my opinion. And Steele will be available next week for a similar price. Any reason I shouldn’t jump on Bolton?

Lekdog

Might be the slightly elevated price compared to a Cera? Could be the ??? over how his wrist will hold up?

Not sure/ He’s a good option though!

hodgey

Who to bring in this week? Currently eyeing off Clarry and Moore. 17 trades, $514k banked.
Any advice would be appreciated!

DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Stewart, Daniel, Jiath, Kosi (Mansell, Highmore)
MID: Miller, Merret, Taranto, Brayshaw, Cripps, Jordon, Powell, RCD (Scott, Brockman, Downie)
RUC: Grawndy (Flynn)
FWD: Ziebell, Bolton, Impey, Daniher, Warner, Poulter (McCreery, Treacy)

Lekdog

Nice team! If you can get Clarry I don’t hate it! You’ve got enough trades left for that move to make sense.

hodgey

Thanks Lek. Feeling Clarry makes sense before he becomes unobtainable. Macrae should hold around $620k through the byes and Steele is another i’m targeting at some point

Johnboy

Bit of help here, I have 16 trades and looking to dump one of my rookies but cant decide who – Warner, Scott or Jones?
And who to Weightman or Madden? have 16 trades with $121k banked

Maverick

Did reply to you on my post, johnboy.
I’d move on Scott probably has a niggle and a 93 BE. Hold Warner for the warm body through byes he has the R14 so that’s handy. Jones is managed so will be back and still an achievable BE

derek

Scott. Will lose a lot of cash.

Warner is a very good footballer and i think there is another big score not far away

Lekdog

Scott I reckon my friend!

Johnboy

Hey Lek, Madden or Weightman?

Lekdog

I prefer Madden, less investment and more flexibility JS seems reasonable

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Double down for me this round, CJ to Madden and Scott to Weightman. Bank the cash ready for upgrades during the bye rounds. Going with Bont as my VC, thought about Clarry and Max and have the C on Grundy in case Bont scores under 125.

Lekdog

Like it

Big G

Madden’s js?

Lekdog

Lions fans seem to think it’s good

Keenbutclueless

Not solid. When Lester comes back, he may find himself out. No matter how well he performs, such is the regard for Lester. Weightman might have stronger JS, but you are paying a premium.

Not unusually at this time, the rookies coming through in the back half are generally less solid in JS than those rookies who hit a run early. Especially for the sides angling at finals, as they have a largely settled line up. For those sides, you might get a run for a few weeks when there is an injury, then out again when the injured player comes back. I suggest this is Madden. For bottom tier teams, there might be more of a mindset of play the kids.

Generally speaking however, you need to ask what purpose your rookies are serving. Up until now it has all been about cash generation. But if you are now turning them all into premiums, what is your key purpose in getting rookies?

A few options:
1. I have upgraded and I am at close to full premium, and I will have enough trades left to cover injuries after the byes. Therefore I only need warm bodies through the byes and everything after that is bonus.
2. I Have fully upgraded and I am close to full premium, but I am low on trades. Therefore I need more JS to cover for the run home
3. Still upgrading. Need maximum cash generation from this crop of rookies.

If your answer is 1, then probably Madden is the best choice. If your answer is 2, probably Weightman. If your answer is 3, possibly Bianco.

Short question. Long answer.

JugHead

But a very good answer IMO. I’ve been thinking along the same lines and flipping between 1 and 2.
One thing we have to factor in is that many of the rookies we bring in now won’t be traded out again.

London bomber

Can anyone help me with my vc option? Can’t decide between bont, gawn, Libba or Oliver for bcc into grundy tomorrow.
I feel gawn won’t be as effective in hitouts because of libba, will libba go to Oliver? And bont will play more midfield with trelor out. Tough call.

Russty_

As Captain I think Bont might want to make a statement tonight but really any of them would probs be ok.

PeteB

Agree Rusty. Bont is rarely quiet in games that matter like this, but geez it is a tough choice.

derek

i like the other captain

demonsdelight

Tracca for me Loves these big games Ask me later and it’s macrae or clarry What a choice Forgot Gawn or libba or

Russty_

Either or are looking good atm mate Tracca and Oli, gawn’s been making some errors and quiet but probs still 120 lol

What Bear

Hi all,

Need some advice on who to field. Need 2 of the following – Jorden, Robertson RCD, Poulter, Warner, Berry and Waterman.

Thank you for any replies

Russty_

Poulter and Robertson for me, but check the weather first 🙂

derek

Warner and Robertson for me. The rest have tough matchups.

can you loop any?

PeteB

Geez the vc choice is tough. Have all of Oliver, Bont, McCrae & Gawn.

Maverick

In a similar boat Pete. I have Macrae Gawn & Oliver. I currently have the VC on gawn but with little confidence. May switch to Macrae yet

derek

I like Gawn against Sweet

Andrew

One up, one down
Ridley and madden/weightman and keep Jordan
or
ridley and premo mid under 605k and trade Jordan

Josh

I’d be strongly considering going for Ridley and one of Walsh, Parish, or Touk Miller! Depends on if you have many rookies still making cash over the byes

Andrew

Was considering parish but will leave me with 16k, but have playing rookies

derek

quicker you get to full premo the better

WillyO

Weightman or madden if you could only take 1? Madden’s DPP may be crucial but less JS

derek

why hasn’t Weightman played prior to 2 weeks ago? was he injured?

Josh

Which rookies should I boot out of Scott, Jordan, Bergman, or Clarke?

Options are then
1. Double down to Weightman and Madden
2. Bring in one of Weightman/Madden and then one of Hall/ Heeney/ Moore

dontblushbaby

I’m going Scott to Heeney, too much much value to be ignored, won’t be bringing in Madden or Flea, no criticism , just don’t like their JS in top 4 teams to generate cash,might be wrong ,just my take

derek

i’m going Scott to Madden and Jordon to Petracca

both cows have done their job

Russty_

Nice start for Tracca for ya Derek

Derek

He looks focused tonight.

Nick nick

Cunnington, Taranto or Bolton?

London bomber

I planned to bring in bolton this week but had to fix up my midfield. I think he’ll have a good game and be high up in the forward rankings

derek

i can see Bolton being close to the top 6 forwards from here on. Can’t see either taranto or Cunnington being near that league.

Mick

or Parish? Cunnington isn’t too far away from a calf injury. Taranto was a starter, but I keep looking at my team thinking i don’t want him in it anymore. I’m unsure on Bolton.

holty01

Good luck everyone for the round

dontblushbaby

Yes, Holty, best wishes to all on getting your VC & C right, I still don’t know which way to go ?

holty01

I have to go someone tonight as loophole plays early tomorrow. I guess I will have to go with Macrae after I said he was better then Bont and Oliver. I might as well back up what I preach

Russty_

Promising start from Jmac and Clarry so far mate..let the points continue!
Except for Jmac clangering it straight to Fritsch for a goal lol

good luck mate.

i’m in need of a few wins this week. Hanging around 6th to 12th in most of my leagues, can see the season slipping away.

Russty_

I’m thinking the highlight of my year might be my Draft league…a bit sad.

Dave

What is everyone’s thoughts on Jiath? Does he need to go?
I’m thinking i either keep him and see how he goes, or swing Laird back to the backline and use cash to upgrade Jiath to Petracca or Shai Bolton.
Thoughts? 🙂

derek

Laird belongs in the backline.

I’ve picked petracca up this week out of the bargain bin.

PeteB

Three scores of 61 or less in last four games. I’ve traded him out as I can’t afford to keep players losing cash who are not performing well enough to stay on field.

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

Round 10 was the week pencilled in at the start of the season for all those in the JR SURVIVOR GROUPS to seriously panic about. This was the the week that is the hardest to survive, so close to the merger, just one last hurdle to clear.

For some, they didn’t just clear the final hurdle, that soared over it.

And for some, those who held onto the immunity necklace from last week, they didn’t care. There were 3 teams this week saved by immunity, TiddlyWinksFC (div 1), Peaches (div 4) and Jagerbomb (div 5), how good is that immunity.

Just to remind everyone, because of the uneven numbers in each of the divisions, this week we had the following number of eliminations:
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

Unfortunatley, the following teams have been eliminated this week:

Div 1 – Rowells A-team, Gawn til Dusk & Green Eggs Ladhams
Div 2 – GrassyLane
Div 3 –
Div 4 – Penske file, Meat & Valens FC
Div 5 – ETH2.0, Huggys Hogs, Stiffy JohnCock, GUNNERS, Blue Baggers &
Funkhouser
Div 6 – John’s Juggernauts, The protestors, shinBONERS
Div 7 –
Div 8 – It’s all about ME & Top1k2020
Div 9 – Thundersmith & Outbreak 21

Bad Luck fellas.

There is only one Division who is playing this round.

Division 5 will have 4 teams eliminated this round.
One team has immunity this week.

Div 5 – The Red Snappers (2405)

For everyone who has survived this far (except teams in Div 5) you will all be going through to the Champion of Champion’s Division.
More details (including the new group code) will be posted next week once we know who the surviving teams from Div 5 is.

Champions division will start after the byes.

Thanks fellas.

S,C tragic

Thank you Derek, I dodged a bullet until now, better luck next year. Div. 4 Penske file

Derek

Bad luck mate. Just takes one bad week

holty01

Awesome again mate.

Catzilla aka Chungus Schmelling

Awesome! Cheers Derek. Bring on the CoC D.

Bit of a breakout year for me this year after a couple of injury plagued ones… Good luck everyone.

Russty_

Does anyone know if H.Clark’s Groin is long term or just soreness?…cheers guys.

Maverick

1-2 weeks russty

Russty_

Thanks Mav, think I’ll have to hold

Maverick

im also an owner and am holding mate

Russty_

Yeah mate if it was 3 I’d probs have turfed him but somehow I have 2 playing def rooks on my bench now haha

Kat

I’m going to hold. Just lucky that some of my defence rookies in Jones, Highmore and Murphy are playing so I can cover him. With trades being so precious I can’t afford to get rid of him at the moment

Lazza

I’ve dumped him .. downgrade to Moore 😁

satan

put in order of must haves please…
steele titch petracca boak

holty01

Just as you have them.

Russty_

I’ll trade you my soul if I can win SC this year 😉

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

looks like I should have kept the C on Clarry, don’t think I’ll need my loophole now, might have to depend on Grundy getting a good score.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I picked Oliver in the twitter polls for VC and then go and do the opposite.

Russty_

I wouldn’t worry just yet bud, Bont can get a ton of points fast and he’s looking better now.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, just had a look at the scores, he’s had a good ten minutes.

Russty_

I think Bont and Tracca have cancelled eachother out mate, hopefully for you he breaks free in the last otherwise it’s gotta be someone else.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’ll have to go with Grundy now. First time I’ve stuffed up my VC this season.

Russty_

Maybe not yet John, Bont is making a late run.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I need a score over 130, or at least 125.

Russty_

I’d take the 126 even if Grundy goes 150 it ain’t a lot of difference.

Russty_

I’d be tempted to take Bont’s score John, in case Grundy gets a 65

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, 125 was always my cut off score, moved it up to 130 later this season after some of the big scores I missed out on taking my VC score. 126 at the moment, think I’ll take that.

Kat

Yeah I have the Bont as my VC and 126 is a tricky one. Ive been caught this year as well taking scores around that mark as my VC and then seeing my original captain go large but think I’m going to stay the conservative path cause it has to pay off one day ????

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

It’s a hard one Kat, right on the 125, if I’d kept the VC on Oliver, I would have taken his 139 no worries. Round 8 was a classic example, had the VC on Grundy, he scores 128, just below my cut off point, I decide to play it safe and take it. Had the C on Bont who scores 155. So 27pts lost, as well as a few close games.

Kat

Well glad I stuck with Bonts VC score this time as Grundy’s injury would have wrecked my captain score. You just never know with this game, sometimes the risks pay off, and other times they don’t. There has been a few times I’ve played it safe and taken the VC and missed out on a better C score but this time it has worked in my favour

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes worked out alright for us, I was worried, because I planned to use Macrae as the loop and get Jordon’s 85 score at the same time, then Macrae is named the sub, but I was able to loop Fullarton in the end to get Bont’s score.

Russty_

Hello?…Max Gawn…did you forget how to play Football?….wtf

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hasn’t been himself the last few weeks Russty, that’s why I started putting the VC/C on Clarry and Bont the last two rounds.

Russty_

What’s the deal with him John?…he should be flying being Captain of a top 2 team heading for probably top 4 finals.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Not sure Russty, just having a down patch, he’ll come good again.

Russty_

Seems to have gotten plenty of Possies in the last ten mins, can’t keep a good Beard down I guess 🙂

holty01

Hey mate. Never pick a ruck as vc or C against the Bullies mate. Hit outs to advantage are non existent against them. I honestly thought if he could get to 100 tonight I’d be happy.

Russty_

Yeah cheers the Holt…luckily I chose Clarry as VC, Jmac is going ok for ya…just cracked a ton.

Derek

Dropped a couple of easy marks in first quarter. That’s -8 instead of maybe +10

Russty_

Yeah he’s a bit of a butterfingers tonight.

Glenn

He was always massively overscored by CD his disposal is and always has been one of the worst for AFL rucks but CD always scored him at above 80% instead of the actual 50%-60%.
Maybe we’re going to get actual performance ratings from CD this year? Could be why crapps hasn’t scored a ton

Russty_

Well it’s 60% tonight…don’t see it changing much.

Russty_

Weideman’s going worse than a guy who hasn’t even started the game yet, nice to see Daniel do something un-spudlike for a change !

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

He must have heard you Russty, 2 goals in a minute.

Russty_

At 3/4 time I’m not sure if those conspiracy theories about Melbourne being gifted wins holds up, all I can see is MFC 12 Goals 8 to WBD 6 Goals 8.

holty01

They have played a great game. They have shut down the Bulldogs running game.

holty01

The Bont has been fantastic this last month or so but how on Earth is he on 81? He has coughed it up 6 times (3 Frees against). I’m annoyed because he should only be on 60 imo which means a big price drop. Melbourne has given him no room and unlike Clarry and Macrae, he has struggled tonight in the contest.

Russty_

I think he’s on 103 5 minutes later and there’s still 13 mins to go…the Bont can do stuff like that

holty01

Lol, 126. How is his game tonight worth that? Melbourne have played him very well. I guess if he scores this well in what I think has been a very average performance, probably all the more point to jump on and pay whatever price it takes.

Russty_

Didn’t see much of him actually, and he didn’t have any game changing moments, maybe he is a CD favourite?..it would suck if that were true though, means the system is full of corruption.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I thought Petracca had a better game and he scored 20pts less.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I put Jordon on the bench with the E, I need F.Macrae to not be the sub for Collingwood to be able to loop Jordon’s score.

holty01

I had the same with Weightman. Had the E on him until a minute before game and thought it was too risky so put him onfield. Might be a mistake after his 53.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Had the E on Weightman, but with both Fullarton and Bergman emergencies for their teams and a chance to be a sub, had to move Weightman on field to make up the numbers.

holty01

Just a heads up mate,Macrae is sub. Think we dodged a bullet there mate

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, saw that holty, miss out on the 85 from Jordon now, had Macrae on the mid bench but Fullarton isn’t playing so I can use him to get the 125 from Bont.

dontblushbaby

I had the VC on Macrae tonight, not many did , 145 – thanks?

holty01

👍

Rover

Was between him and clarry for me, went clarry lucky only 6 points difference in it

dontblushbaby

yep, I have Clarry also

demonsdelight

TT 6 goal touch up was right just the wrong team Plenty to like about the Dees Defence is the key to their game though

Derek

I’m on the bandwagon

Russty_

Those darned Umpires really won the game for your blokes tonight Neil…they were just following the evil plan of the AFL so that MFC can win the flag this year…if that happens, then Covid can be cured worldwide.

demonsdelight

Is that another alias Looks very close to russtys

Russty_

😉

Easy to defend when your team up the field shuts down the quick ball movement. They had a great plan and executed superbly. Adelaide showed how to open Melbourne up last week but to Melbourne’s credit, they adjusted extremely well this week. They frustrated the Bulldog’s into turnovers from the relentless pressure.

Harmes negating Libba was a huge plus and a genius move giving it sets Bont and Macca free

Derek

Dogs overall had more SC points

PeteB

Bont has that awkward score of 126. Do I take it or back Walsh to beat it on Sunday ?

Russty_

I’d take Bont’s score just in case Walsh falls over and spears his anus on a Cactus and is unavailable to play, even if Walsh doesn’t do that, there’s not much difference if you take Bont’s score.

PeteB

When do they name the subs ? All 3 of my bench players are emergencies right now !

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

An hour before their game. I’m waiting on Macrae and Fullarton today and Bergman tomorrow.

Russty_

Macrae and J.Clark it is John.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, I miss out on the 85 from Jordon now, but at least Fullarton hasn’t been named the sub, so I can loop him for the Bont VC 125 score. Was very tempted to go with Grundy as C, but I’ve played it safe, hope he doesn’t go too big that I regret the decision, it’s happened to often this season.

Kat

I’m going to play safe and take it

HarryH

Yeah I’m taking it too. But that’s also because I don’t have Grundy and the main options (Oliver, Bont, Macrae, Gawn) have all played. Otherwise I’d be picking Fyfe, Parish or Mills and that’s too much of a gamble. Banking the 125

Simon

Hey guys
Trade Cummings to Loyd??
Cheers

Russty_

Yes, Cumming has been great but doesn’t have Lloyd’s ceiling.

Derek

100%

ST1974

Who out of Poulter and Byrnes should I bench to take Jordon’s score. Leaning towards Byrnes, however, the Saints do play the Roos while the Pies play the Cats and not sure that Poulter would score 80 against them.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

If Macrae isn’t the sub for Collingwood, I’ll have the same problem. Poulter is averaging more per game, but up against a better side. I’m sure if I’m able, whoever I pick will be the wrong one.

Simon

Hi guys,
I can only do one of these trades
cumming – Loyd, meaning I will have to field Rowe.
or
Bergman – Heeney
cheers

Russty_

Get Lloyd.

TOPHAWK

Superb effort by the Dees last night. Harmes going to Libba was huge! It upset the whole midfield structure of the Dogs. The only positive for the Dogs is that Macrae outscored Oliver as my VC. At least I have negated Oliver scoring wise this week. (Dont have him yet………) Id say every other Oliver owner would have VC’D him last night and will take his 278. Tophawk will take Macrae’s 290.

Jordan

Should I trade Kosi to Madden which would give me 277k to hit the byes with or hold Kosi for rnd 13 and 14 bye cover.

Derek

Hold for sure

Jordan

Cheers, take Gawn vc or go for Grundy

Derek

I had VC Gawn and will be going Grundy as C

Jordan

Thanks Derek, doing that means I can loophole Poulters score to.

Hedski

Warner or Madden on field?
Can’t loop have Waterman.
Cheers fellas

Derek

I’m a big fan of Warner. Has been a bit quite but I think he has a few big scores to come this year

Hedski

Yeah playing Carlton too.
Good luck in Magnificent 7 Derek.

Derek

I need the win mate

Hedski

No doubt you’ll get it, you always seem to pip me!

Hedski

I think Guthrie and Blics are out for the cats for those that have Guthrie

dontblushbaby

Correct ,Stanley & Z.Guthrie in, F.Macrae is the Sub if anyone is looping

Derek

Cats love their late changes

Derek

Poulter or Madden on field

im going with Poulter only because I can still loop Madden with RCD if Madden does good.

Russty_

Good call.

Jordan

Whilst we’re at it, Kosi or Highmore on field.

Derek

I think Kosi. Highmores few games havnt been great. Tim O’Brien back in for Hawks will allow Kisi to work up the field more.

Jordan

Thanks, shame about Grundy. Hopefully short term injury.

Derek

Not even sure why I took C on Grundy. Was thinking Steele all week

Jordan

I was going to vc Macrae but decided to go Gawn just to match my opponent as I was projected to beat him.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Next week, I will be trading out Flynn, move Fullarton to R3, then move Poulter or Robertson from the mids to the fwd line and trade in Bianco a week early.

Russty_

Bit of a fizzer from Flynn this week John, not watching but I’m guessing it’s not in the Giants fwd line much? Yeah Bianco looks to be scoring ok, took him a long time to get a run ay

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Flynn has now stopped making us cash, so time to go, plus Robertson is wasted on my mid bench, at least in the fwd line I can have him on field or on the bench with the E on him. I like the mid/def of Bianco as well, scoring well enough today to stay in the side.

TOPHAWK

I am doing the same John. Flynn is turning into Reeves. Perfect switch. Grab Flynn’s cash, grab Reeve’s cash appreciation and still have the same round 14 bye protection. Happy days!! Cheers. TH

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Hi TH, yes I have Reeves on my watchlist, was looking at him as a replacement for Flynn, will be bringing him in round 13 if he is over his injury by then. Trade Flynn out R12 when he has his bye, move Fullarton to R3 then if Reeves is fit R13 bring him in on the bubble for Fullarton.

Hedski

Well Taranto is shitting the bed, but happy with the Whitfield trade in so far

Hedski

Not watching the game though

Derek

im watching. It’s Whitfield if old.

Derek

Whitfield in 2 weeks after his bye. Seriously thinking Daniel to Whitfield

TRIGGA HAPPY

Cj to whitfield for me after his bye. 👍

TRIGGA HAPPY

Berg to zorko the magnificent looks to be a solid trade this week.

Russty_

Great trade Trig…he is indeed magnificent!

TRIGGA HAPPY

As is the norm wearing the VC armband in the fire sale team. I had clarry as VC last night in my team. 😉

Derek

He still doesn’t treat his GF very well

TOPHAWK

Great trade Trigga. Took a huge punt getting Zorko in 3 weeks ago and he has produced scores of 140, 117, and that 162 yesterday. I took him back then because he suited my team bye structures and the fact Neale was out of the team. His MID/FWD eligibility was attractive also. His price back then was $485K. Great value. We are happy chappies! Zorko the magnificient!! Cheers. TH

TRIGGA HAPPY

I wanted to see how he went against the tiges. Passed the test so brought him in. I did bring in heeney and lloyd 3 weeks ago. So no complaints. 👍

Russty_

Sympathies to those with the C on Grundy, looks like his wrist injury is bad…think he’s been subbed

Russty_

Actually a neck injury…that’ll be my 11th injury for the year

Lazza

Must have swallowed his testicles Russty… I had the ‘C’ on him .. hope he chokes on ‘em …

Greendale

Grundy subbed out halfway through the third quarter on 72. Painful for those who captained him including myself

JugHead

Yep. And plans to trade out Flynn next week have to be reassessed.

dontblushbaby

Flynns on 29 points 3/4 time , may not get a game next week, Briggs has been playing well in the 2’s

TOPHAWK

Flynn is turning into the monster bubble boy Reeves next week. No worries!!

Derek

He’s still going up. 75 at 3/4 time

Pman

Hi Community any thoughts one which one of the following three Defenders I should bench; Kosi, Highmore and Jones? Probably leaning towards Kosi or Highmore but can’t decide…thoughts?

dontblushbaby

Go with your gut mate, too hard to call

dontblushbaby

Oh well Mummy subbed out might have saved Flynn JS, however the Giants have the bye next week

dontblushbaby

Whoops , wrong post , should have been to Jughead

Derek

I would bench Highmore.

Pman

Wish I had benched him as he is spudding it up big time with 9 points towards the end of the 2nd Qtr 🙁

Kat

Me too. 17 points half way through the last quarte is really hurting

dontblushbaby

What’s the chances of Brockman being made the Sub tonight ? Any Hawks supporters have an opinion ? Derek ? Will want to loop Poulter with him

Derek

Morrison is probably the most likely to be sub.

When do you have to decide?

dontblushbaby

I have Byrnes from the Saints, might roll the dice ,Poulter was looking at going 80ish ,normally I’d take 62, just don’t want to get caught out

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Not much difference in the end.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Spot on Derek.

Derek

Had plans to get Zorko last week, but held trade. Boy oh boy he is now hurting non-owners

Hedski

One of my best trade ins for the year 4 weeks ago

dontblushbaby

Yep, I did the same, probs luck more than skill, there wasn’t much of a choice of Premo’s

TOPHAWK

Zorko the Magnificent!! 162 SC today. How good was that. Paid 498K for his services 4 weeks ago. At the time, I was concerned about his age but took the punt. Happy days!

Derek

Take Madden 64 or play RCD or Berry?

Hedski

I’m in the same boat Derek

Derek

Scaled to 68.

Although if Brookman is sub, I won’t be able to take Madden

Derek

How much of the game did Macrae play? Scored 6 pts

dontblushbaby

23 mins

Pman

He came on in the 3rd Qtr as a medical sub for Grundy.

Hedski

Take Poulter or go RCD?
It’s not a bad rookie score

Pman

I’d take it.
