Panic Room | Round 6

Published by Damo on

Can you believe it’s Round 6 already? It’s amazing how quickly time goes when you’re having fun. Mostly having fun. Sort of having fun? OK fine, people are panicking because the rucks aren’t doing the thing they usually do, the midfield is still an enigma and rookies aren’t fattening fast enough.

Moving on… no Thursday night game this week so you’re getting this Panic Room a day later, but don’t fret, we have all your SuperCoach relevant selection news down below.

NEWZ YOU CAN UZE

The ruck rookie lovechild Brayden Preuss has returned to the Giants line-up alongside Isaac Cumming and Toby Greene. Not sure the media could’ve made it a better week for Toby to return with all the talk around umpire respect and dissent, as I run up the field thanks to the 50m I just got I’ll just let you know that Jimmy Webster has returned for the Saints.

Big Tim English has suffered some sort of hamstring injury and will be missing from the Dogs line-up for 2-3 weeks at this stage. Stefan Martin has returned to the line-up to take his place, alongside Josh Schache, while mature age recruit Robbie McComb has come in for his first AFL game. Jackson Hately comes into the Adelaide side for the injured Rory Sloane.

The player who won Gerard Healy’s Best Kick in Football award several years ago, Kane Farrell, has returned to the Power team alongside Brownlow Medallist Ollie Wines. Jackson Mead and Jed McEntee have both been omitted, as well as future Saint Karl Amon. The Eagles have made 3 changes, with the most relevant being Hugh Dixon going out with some sort of calf injury, Luke Strnadica will debut in his place.

A few of the Dockers have been hit with the spicy flu, so Heath Chapman and Hayden Young have been replaced by Griffin Logue and Darcy Tucker for this week, Lachie Schultz also returns after having his turn last week. For the Blues, Patrick Cripps returns after some hamstring awareness, he comes in for Matthew Kennedy who is now having his turn to be injured.

For Sundays games, North Melbourne have named Paul Curtis to debut, while Cam Zurhaar and Tarryn Thomas return, and Aaron Hall is out as expected after that nasty looking hamstring strain. Patrick Dangerfield is missing through injury for Geelong, and Oliver Dempsey has been named to debut in place of Luke Dahlhaus.

Connor Budarick returns for the Suns after recovering from his ACL injury, Alex Davies and Rory Atkins miss out. The Lions get Keidean Coleman back for this game, while Mitch Robinson will be missing through injury.

Josh Gibcus comes back into the Tigers side after being managed last week, he joins Kamdyn McIntosh, Riley Collier-Dawkins and Rhyan Mansell. Hugo Ralphsmith will be missing through injury, Ben Miller, Jake Aarts and Matthew Parker have all been omitted. Jack Viney and Jake Lever will be missing for this game as they are in HS protocols, Luke Dunstan will pull on his new colours for the first time, Ben Brown has returned at the expense of Tom McDonald.

Only Mitch Lewis and Ned Reeves have come out of the Hawks side so far for their ANZAC Day clash against Sydney. Ned Long and Jackson Callow are both chances to debut, while Chad Wingard, Max Lynch and Will Day have been named on the extended bench. For the Swans Dylan Stephens, Lance Franklin and Sam Wicks are a chance to return, no confirmed outs yet so far though.

Essendon could have a huge boost with Zach Merrett and Jake Stringer both been named to potentially take on the Pies, while Beau McCreery, Brody Mihocek, Jack Ginnivan are among the five possible ins for Collingwood. Jordan Roughead and Mason Cox are the only confirmed outs.

WHEN A HEART BREAKS, IT DON’T BREAKEVEN

What am I s’posed to do, when the best part of me is owning you?

-93 – Brayden Preuss
-71 – Malcolm Rosas
-69 – Nathan O’Driscoll
-51 – Beau McCreery
-26 – Sam Hayes
-22 – Jack Hayes
-18 – Brandon Zerk-Thatcher
-11 – Nathan Kreuger
-8 – Marcus Windhager
-4 – Corey Durdin

What am I s’posed to say, when you’re losing cash when I have you stay?

200 – Aliir Aliir
174 – Clayton Oliver
173 – Shannon Hurn
168 – Tarryn Thomas
165 – Jarryd Lyons
157 – Travis Boak
157 – Chad Wingard
152 – Sean Darcy
150 – Ollie Wines
150 – Brodie Grundy

LISTEN TO THE LATEST MAILBAG PODCAST HERE

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN

Jack Steele will be a tempting VC option on Friday night, but up against the Giants he could have attention from Lachie Ash or Matt de Boer. Tom Green is a smokey pick.

Jack Macrae, Josh Dunkley, Marcus Bontempelli, the usual Dogs suspects are the best options against Adelaide in Ballarat. Macrae standing out with an average of 135 at Mars Stadium across his career. Rory Laird is a potential option with the added responsibility now Sloane will be missing for the season.

Andrew Brayshaw and Sam Walsh are probably the most relevant other VC options.

Lachie Neale is primed for a big game in the QClash and should be a fairly safe captaincy candidate, he averages 123 at Metricon Stadium. Touk Miller is another option, he scored 115 last time he played the Lions.

If you get to the last game of the round and still haven’t locked in a captain, then you will be hoping Brodie Grundy returns to his usual hulking best. He has scored 150+ in the last two ANZAC Day games against the Bombers.

OUT: bowey, hinge & Rowell 
IN: Bailey Smith, Sicily & Preuss
Bank : $0

i posted in chest sheet but would love to get feedback here. Is draining the bank to zero dollars smart? It scares me.

Lekdog

For those moves I love the money drain. Better on field than in the bank!

Jut

Don’t listen to Damo . I’ve had $0 last week and had my highest score for the season. I’ve done exactly the same trades. Smith is a jet and will be a top 8 mid.. (think it’s effecting Dunkleys scores)

Srixi

Lol

SchittSangers

Smith is a great choice and get him now while he’s still fairly cheap and a POD. If you wait until the majority realise that he spends as much time on the ground as the umpires and scores at more than 1ppm you will pay 50k more and lose the POD benefit.
Lever is out this week so Bowey could have a better game but he’s not a keeper so loss really and Rowell is the most over rated footballer ever to be listed in the AFL, he’s slower than the LNP reacting to a natural disaster, can’t mark, can’t tackle and can’t kick. Hinge can play football when given the chance and has a lot of money to make.

Having said all of that, your decision is a good one so stand by it.

Russty_

Any further info on English’s hamstring?….I wonder if they’re just resting him so Martin can have his 200th game.

Maverick

Been Confirmed 40 min ago it’s a low grade strain and expected too miss the next 2-3 weeks.

Lekdog

2-3 weeks, mid-week injury means it’ll be 3 games you’d think.

Maverick

I’m an English owner thankfully i owned him from the start but alot of ppl only jumper on last week. I have Dixon, JHayes & xerri so I think I’ll have enough cover to probably hold him . If enough people jump off him he might just become a nice POD.

Chucky

3 games and then competing with Martin when he returns? I think trade, monitor his return and pick him back up after the byes?

Lekdog

I’m conservative, if you have Hayes, Preuss, Xerri etc. you can cover.

But it is tempting to move him to another premo and play those guys anyway!

Maverick

Jeez I just done a 180 on my last comment. I think I’m trading haha

He is out 2-3 weeks then no guarantee he finds the same form and martin May hold his spot anyway…
English too Steele is tempting

SchittSangers

I agree Chucky his POD value has passed and all of the latecomers who had to spend a trade to get him will probably hold I’ve had him at F1 since round 1 and can easily trade him for Steele and move Gresham fwd to negate any points loss. With Brodie, Daicos and O’driscoll all still increasing in value on the bench it will be easy to get English back in the week after he returns

Lazza

14 games for me .. hamstring injury never good during the season.. especially for a ruckman… English no longer on my radar … unless he dies something extraordinary… never say never 😁

Sleeveless in Seattle

Out- curnow and Thomson dow

In-Rosa and Tom Green.

Leaves me with 50k.

Lekdog

Can you find someone other than Charlie? Plenty of cash to make

Sleeveless in Seattle

I don’t really have anyone else.

My team with out the trades are

Backline ridley, crisp, rioli, Hewett, daicos, mccartin,gibcus,de koning.

Midfield steele, touk, neale, cripps, pretracca, jhf, dow, odriscoll, macdonald, solige and joyce

Rucks Grundy, gawn, Dixon

Forward trelor, heeney, butters, cog, curnow, Martin, haye, rachele.

So I feel a few of them still have money to make

Sleeveless in Seattle

I have 107k in the bank

Lekdog

Honestly probably better off moving JHF than Curnow at this stage

Sleeveless in Seattle

Yeah, i have decided to do that. As a norf fan, I hoped jhf would stay a little longer. But I want Tom Green now.

TommyC99

Hey community, im set on bringing in touk and rosas this week, but unsure which combo to trade out!

1. Rowell + Ward
2. Whitfield + Macdonald

Any thoughts much appreciated!

Lekdog

Probably 1

Glenman

OUT: JHF, H Dixon, J Ginnivan
IN: Heeny, Rosas, Pruessmoose
Still 80K in bank – get my cash gen going and bring in a premo

Maverick

Which of the two. Torn on keeping/trading English but it may get me Steele!

Option 1:
OUT – bowey hinge English
IN – Steele Sicily Preuss
(Keep Rowell which I do like)

Option 2:
OUT – Rowell bowey hinge
IN – Sicily Bailey Smith Preuss
(Keep English and hope he finds form post hamstring )

Tiggytrain

Option 1 for me.

SchittSangers

English Rowell Bowey >Steele>Smith>Preuss

Donavan

Looking to upgrade Chapman to a keeper defender. Thinking Sicily, Caleb Daniel or Rich. Hoping to end up with at least 2 of these gents to go with already fielded Short, Hewett & Whitfield, and either Ridley, Lloyd or Docherty to finish the line.
Thoughts on which one of Sicily, Daniel or Rich to get now.

Lekdog

Sic

ST1974

Great work Damo. I am trading Dixon to Preuss to cover English. Should I also trade Rowell to Greesham or Brodie or keep Rowell for another week. I am keen to trade MacDonald or Hough, however, there doesn’t appear to be any suitable rookies on the bubble this week so I might leave it until next week.

Appreciate any advice or thoughts.

Will

I stupidly got rid of Gresh after his score of 50 odd a few weeks back to quickly bring in Butters. Would’ve been much easier to bring Butters in after he went down in price now…

ST1974

Thanks for the advice Will. It probably sounded like the right move at the time. I had a similar thought about Butters two weeks ago when he had a poor score but didn’t have the cash to bring anyone in so kept him. Is Gresham or Brodie the better option for Rowell?

Will

OUT: Hinge, Rowell and Hough
IN: Sicily, Preuss, Rosas
Bank: $0

Derek

They look good trades

Pottsy

I want value and Price etc taken into account here. Whose the best option or even rank them please 🙂
Steele, Oliver, Tom green, tracca or Bailey Smith.
I think Steele or Oliver for points but are Smith and green even trac the value plays? Thanks

SamuraiPizzaCat

Oliver but wait until next week, break even is 174.

Petracca seems like decent value this week at $575k

SamuraiPizzaCat

Anyone else thinking no trades this round? Rosas and Preuss are tempting to bring in but don’t feel like current rookies are quite ready to trade out yet. I’ll likely bring in Sam Hayes next week instead of Preuss.
Team is looking a little more solid with the DPP changes. Moved Brodie into MIDS to get Ward off field, and MacDonald on to FWD bench.

Shake n bake

I’m also not trading

Dan

Is it dumb to downgrade English to Pruess and have stupid amount of cash? Then thinking JHF to T Green, and Dixon to Rosas. Would still have $276k left in the bank. Rucks would be Grundy/Pruess and J Hayes on the bench… Risky but left with lots of money and cash generation in rookies.

Pottsy

Green or bazza?! And why if you have some reasoning

1 hour to decide 🙁

Tophawk

Probably Bailey Smith Pottsy. I have Tom Green and I am a bit concerned he might get less time in the guts due to the return of Tobias Greene. Taranto is likely to spend less time forward and more time in the guts. That could negatively impact Green’s output. Just my take. Cheers, TH

Pman

Bazza for me as higher ceiling and tossing up bringing him in for Rowell this week but worries I have too many Dogs with Macrae, Dunkley and Treloar.

cash_cows

lagging behind in the points, needa axe the cows early.

stephens and hinge -> pendles and rosa

Matty C

So far Hinge to Pruess with a lot of DPP shuffling. Going to loop Pruess and Hayes tonight. If they both go well then likely no more trades this week but if they both go poorly then a chance the trigger finger gets itchy and I go Dixon to Rosas and Rowell to Titch. My current thinking is to wait on some other mids who will fall in price (Touk, Trac, Parker).

Tophawk

Hi Matty, I was going to turn English into Gawn this week but I have done exactly like you. Hinge to Preuss and then loophole Hayes with Dixon. Gawn can wait. Cash gen is king.

Matty C

My thinking exactly. Need all the cash we can get.

Tophawk

Well that trade was a little gem for us! Hinge punted, Preuss comes in and pumps out a 117! His price next week will have a 3 in front of it. Happy days!!

Pman

Jackson, Mead and Rowell OUT
Preuss, Sinclair/Smith, Rosas IN
Leaves me approx $420K for tops ups in coming weeks.
Thinking Preuss will average around 100 whereby Luke Jackson can be hit and miss with Max now back to his old form.
Can’t decide between Bailey Smith and Jack Sinclair as both good POD’s but I already have Macrae, Dunkley and Treloar and thinking Smith might be one too many Dogs and I don’t know enough about Sinclair as a player to know if he is likely to continue with this consistent scoring of 100+ each game so far?
Any thoughts community?

Russty_

Hi Pman, very late and probably insignficant reply I know but in reply, I wouldn’t have traded Jackson out ….although Sinclair and or Preuss would’ve worked out in hindsight. I think from viewed games so far this year, Sinclair is a ton a week player it seems.
Don’t know about Smith yet, maybe it benefits him that Hunter is out, but for me, I’d need to see more solid scoring proof than 3 games.
I like…and chose Sinclair because he’s a cool customer, who more often than not, disposes of the ball pretty well, keeps his head in a crisis, and fks up a lot less than he makes mistakes.

holty01

Good luck all. Hope your all well.

Lazza

Are you well Holty? Hope so .. good luck this week.. well every week really ..

holty01

Cheers mate. I’m fine just been flat out with work. All I’ve been doing lately is work and spend whatever times left in the day with my boys. Hence haven’t been on here chatting to the wonderful community

Russty_

Same to you bud, and go the Sainters! 🙂

holty01

They should have been up by 5 goals at quarter time and now it’s game on

Lazza

i now have 19 DPPs … it’s actually driving me nuts 🤪

Pman

Will be handy come the dreaded BYE Rounds.

Russty_

Haha it’s crazy ay Laz?…I had 21 last week, too many bloody options

SchittSangers

The smart move would have been to trade English for Preuss and put him at R3.
I’m not smart I traded English for Steele, oh well.
Lucky enough to leave Hayes on the fwd bench I hope he hasn’t done a knee

Derek

Tossed up all week who to put on field. Decided it had to be Hayes because I wasn’t sure if Baldwin would play or be sub and therefore not able to loop Hayes score.

Russty_

Steele’s on 61 at half time, Preuss is such a klutz he could get suspended at any moment.
Hope he goes big, I put the VC on him.

Last edited 1 month ago by Russty_
SchittSangers

Preuss is going to make a lot of cash and that’s what I need

SchittSangers

Gresham gone very quiet I don’t think he touched it 3rd qrtr I need 3 goals from him in last qrtr

Russty_

I would’ve traded him in this week if English wasn’t out, he’ll bounce back.

Lazza

Whitfield and Taranto going gang busters not .. meanwhile Green is keeping on ..

Derek

I’ve never seen a team ignore a player so much as GWS ignore Whitfield.

Russty_

Yeah agree, they mustn’t rate him much lately.

Derek

3 or 4 times I saw him running past in the clear, but the GWS team mates decided to kick it to a contest. Somthing very weird is happening

Russty_

It wouldn’t make him fell very good being ignored when he’s presenting a viable option, several times per game…. I’m glad I got rid of him a few weeks ago.

Derek

I had him traded to Sicily early in the week, but reversed and held.

He seems to be moving ok, but just can’t get a touch.

Watch Rowell go big this week once I get rid of him

Russty_

I think Whitfield to Sicily would’ve been a fairly safe call this week?…and you’re a hawks man, you seem to be suffering from trade hesitancy mate. Sometimes you gotta just pull the trigger. Worry about running out of trades in the second half of the year.

Tophawk

I agree with you Russty. A defensive mindset when trading is asking for big trouble. I trade with controlled aggression. In SC you have to take controlled risks but not reckless risks. Today I am punting English for a POD premo. Two dudes that are on my hit list are Ben Keays or Rory Laird. With Sloane out for the season, why not consider it? Adelaide are travelling OK. That to me is a controlled aggressive trade option this week. Cheers. TH

Russty_

Who’d you end up going with TH?…I noticed you didn’t get Laird or Keays.
I think Smith and Laird are tagging eachother?

holty01

I’ll tell you what, if the AFL don’t come to their senses soon about this umpire dissent rubbish, they will lose me and I’m sure plenty of others from watching this game. I’m all for awarding a 50m for abuse to a umpire or similar but to award a 50m just by simply saying the ball hit the ground, how is that dissent?

Russty_

It’s ridiculous Holty how it’s become but at the same time there was way too much arms out crap and questioning every call an Ump made, players just need to shut it and not remonstrate anymore and accept the decision whether it’s right or wrong and just get on with it. Just the way it is now, the players have to let it go and let the crowd let the Umps know what their decision was like.
It’s the constant talking back / second guessing / “you have no idea” kinda comments that would be wearing Umps down and making them hate their jobs…hence the change.

Russty_

Sympathies for those who had Hayes on field, and or Whitfield, I think at least 5 opponents this week had Hayes on.
Terrible luck for the guy, hope it’s not too severe and he can get back out there at some point.

Kat

I’m one of those you are sending sympathies to Russty haha. We were looking like having a close contest but think I will need a miracle now. Feeling really sorry for Hayes though, he had made such a good start to his career. Not good with Marshall hurt as well

Russty_

Yeah sorry for you Kat, that’s a rough break ..heartbreaking for Hayes though and now Marshall, it’ll have to be Ryder and Battle and or King backing up?…not sure how Campbell’s going. Hope Hayes gets another chance at some point.

Derek

Had to put Hayes on field not knowing if Baldwin or MacDonald were playing or not, or possible sub, and if able to use them to loop Hayes.

Whitfield on field is entirely my own fault

Russty_

Gotta love Monday and or Thursday games ay? Bad luck mate.

Lazza

Thanks Russty, seems an every week occurrence for me .. normally I’d be looping but all fwds were playing as were my DPPs.. so many sub std points this year .. twice with the C too..
Hayes to Hayes next week ..

Russty_

It’s shitty luck Laz, can’t forsee it.
I consciously chose Voss and Long as my patsies this year, giving up a scoring rookie for being able to loop on 3 lines. This week I had 4 loops including Dixon.
Having 2 non playing loops is something I haven’t done before, guess I’ll know at the end of the season whether it was a good call or not.

DEESNUTSRBIG

Bigmen are going down quick this week: Reeves, Phillips, Dixon, English, Hayes
Hayes for Hayes next week looking like the most popular trade of the season.

Kat

Well my predicted score was looking OK this week for a change but Hayes on field will ruin that now. Prob cost me a few wins. What a shame for Hayes though, he was going so well after getting a chance at the big time. Highmore might get a go at it again maybe if Marshall is hurt as well

SchittSangers

Hopefully Max Heath or Oscar Adams get a go and do well

VossTheBoss

Steele VC – tick
Preuss – tick
Cogs – tick
Sinclair – tick
Hayes – yikes

Tough week to be a ruckman, hopefully for
my blues big pittonet can get through the game without injury

Tophawk

Steele- tick
Preuss- tick
Cogs- tick
Tom Green- tick
Hayes on bench- tick
Terrible situation for Jack Hayes suffering that ACL injury. I hope he makes a speedy recovery. He has been a great asset to my team.

Lazza

How does Preuss score so well … he is a very average ruckman .. had zero impact against a non – ruckman ..

Rick Grimes

I thought he went OK. Non owner?

Derek

He was -10 after 10 mins, did good

Lazza

Yep non-owner… not sure that’s relevant it’s more that I was hoping for a GWS win.. Given he had no opposition for a good part of the second half I’d have expected he would have clocked up 150+… He had a huge advantage getting first tap on the ball at every contest yet he did little to their advantage.. Did he score more than 20 in the last qtr? Was frustrating to watch (I don’t know the answer)

Rick Grimes

I think the problem was more the GWS midfield. Pruess tapped almost every ball to their advantage but they just couldn’t clear it. Saints really crowded them in that last quarter.

SchittSangers

Preuss 117 from 10 kicks, 4 clearances, 6 contested possessions, 6marks, a goal, 350 metres gained and 47 hitouts.
Marshall 92 from 11 kicks, 5 clearances, 5 contested possessions, 3marks, a goal, 352 metres gained and 16 hitouts

Preuss score looks fair to me.

SchittSangers

431 from 4 with a predicted of 2376 maybe English for Steele instead of Preuss wasn’t such a bad idea afterall

SchittSangers

Updated predicted is now 2446. Much better

DEESNUTSRBIG

All these media morons and coaches remember when the umpires werent noticted they did a good job. Sam Newman would say they are trying to become a bigger part of the game, well they sure are now and it sucks.

SchittSangers

Sam Newman was/is a total flog who tried to make everything about Sam Newman.
Teams and players deliberately cheat to the extent where they are coached on how to do it, deliberately breaking the rules is cheating. Without umpires our game would regress to the cowardly off the ball king hits and thuggery of the 1970′ and 1980’s that flogs like Leigh Mathews & Kevin Sheedy called tough and if we accept abuse of umpires we eventually wont have umpires.
If you can’t accept the enforcement of the rules of the game like a mature adult you shouldn’t be playing.
Blaming the umpires for calling infringements as they see them is like blaming the ground for getting wet after rain.

DEESNUTSRBIG

Fair comment about Newman but you are missing the point. Certain AFL umpires including retired umpires inserted themselves in the game with their ego and comments which were highlighted on the mic live TV games etc
Local level umpires don’t want to be highlighted, just do their job without flogs losing it at them.
a 50/50 decision resulting in a 50 meter penalty because an umpires feelings was hurt when others umpires in the same game simply get on with is ticking people off as its come out of nowhere for such minor things as arms out.

Murray

Should l take score of Preuss via a loophole?

To do this I would need to trade Grundy and loophole Dixon into rucks. This will gives me 540k plus a hinge trade and I could bring in any premo.

DEESNUTSRBIG

I traded NoManBundy to Preuss & JHF to Petracca.

Flat track Bully NoManBundy (BE 150)
Recent Scores – 53, 118, 96, 101, 124, 83, 89, 107, 110, 85, 88.
153 vs Phillips (2021), 151 vs Phillips (2020), 83 vs Draper (2021)
143 vs Burgess (2021), 105 vs Witts (2020)
140 vs Chol (2021), 115 vs Soldo (2020)
ESS, SUNS, RICH in the next 3 vs Draper, Witts, Nank.

Scores only go down 2018 – 130, 2019 – 130, 2020 – 120, 2021 – 115, 2022 – 100

Murray

Actually, I can take Preuss score by trading out Grundy and Rowell and bring in Heeney and Sicily by using the 1.07m to spend on these 2 premos

Yes or no

Russty_

Who is your R1 Murray? If it’s not Gawn..maybe get him in.
At the moment, Ruck ranks are English rank 1, Gawn Rank 2 and Witts rank 3.

Murray

Hi rusty current rucks are Witt’s and Grundy.
If I did this trade my rucks would be Witt’s, preuss and Dixon

SchittSangers

I gave Grundy a reprieve due to English being injured and I’m hoping that the media scrutiny and Anzac Day crowd will spark him up a bit. But his breakeven is 150 and I doubt very much that he will score that much so he will drop some more $ this week.
You need a good backup for Preuss coz rucks have been dropping fast the last couple of weeks and Preuss is high risk so if you don’t have Jackson or Xerri you could consider upgrading Dixon to one of them. Jacko has been good every 2nd week and he was bad last week Xerri has been good most weeks except for when he had his nose smashed and missed most of a qrtr a couple of weeks ago and both are reliable F7/R3 keepers

Murray

Thanks sangers, thinking of keeping Grundy now. I do have Witt’s as R2 and xerri as F5

demonsdelight

GAWN and Jackson might not be as bad as I thought with Preuss at R 3 hmm

Jordan

Who to trade for Rosas, Dixon, Hinge, Ward, Stephens or MacDonald, leaning towards Dixon, he could be a viable downgrade when he returns, still a low b/e and not to expensive. Cheers

DEESNUTSRBIG

Lachie Whitfield off to the supercoach Vet this week to be put down and put owners out of their misery.

James

Especially with Hayes score on field I need all the points I can get, so is it worth going English to Heeney?

Rick Grimes

There’s a big difference between frustration and dissent. The AFL have taken it too far. I’m all for stopping players remonstrating with umpires. We don’t want our game to be like football where they crowd the referee whenever there’s a contentious call. But Throwing your hands up is just a natural human action. It’s not abusive or demonstrative at all. If the ups can’t handle a few hands in the air, they need to find a new sport. Cricket is one of the toughest sports in terms of how they handle umpire abuse. Nothing we’ve seen penalised by the AFL this year would even have raised an eyebrow on the cricket pitch. Time for the AFL to redefine dissent.

Rant over.

The Ranger

I know it’s difficult to acept at the moment Rick but I’m not sure you understand the extent of the problem. Last week the U15 Girls game for my local club was cancelled because they didn’t have an umpire.
That’s where we’re at.
Kids are not playing the game because we don’t have enough umpires.
Drastic times call for drastic measures. I know it looks a bit wrong some times but if it means that more kids start feeling ok about umpiring then I’m all for it.

Rick Grimes

Yea, I don’t see how this rule against arm waving has any impact on junior umpire numbers.

Happilyeddyafter

Well you need some education Rick ,, and so do our kids

Daniel

Trading Rowell out this week, Who should I bring in out of Parish/Petracca/Mitchell? Or should I get in Hewett instead?

ST1974

Hewett. I have had him from the start and he has been awesome (DPP also a bonus). Petracca also a good option, however, I would wait at least another week as his price is due to drop.

dontblushbaby

TMitch, I am

Derek

I’ve gone Rowell to Parker

1% of teams. Has DPP and the Hawks this week

Russty_

Hope he gives you a 123 this week mate and not a 39

Derek

As a forward, I can see him being there abouts the top 6

ST1974

Should I hold or trade Rowell this week. If I was going to trade him I would want to bring someone in who is a keeper. Bailey Smith seems to be the obvious and popular choice, however, it would leave me with next to nothing in the bank. Will Brodie is another option, however, I don’t see him as a keeper, although, I could be wrong. Are there any other options worth considering or should I wait a week and hope Rowell at least gets to his break even score and move him on next week.

Russty_

Zorko, Parker, De Goey

demonsdelight

first two great de goosey not keen

Russty_

Yeah I wouldn’t pick him, but he’s in his price range.

Russty_

Shame Weideman can’t maintain the form mate, he’s pretty good when he’s on, just goes missing other times.

SchittSangers

Zorko looked very proppy lately I wouldn’t be jumping on him before the byes

Russty_

Yeah plus he’s old as fk

demonsdelight

Bevo got what he deserved When the game is on the line where’s his best player MacRae ,,on the pine Just a poor coach NDD

Tophawk

Yep. Poor coaching by Bevo. To have your top midfielder (Macrae) sitting out the last 5 minutes of the game when in the balance is inexcusable. It probably cost the dogs the game.

Russty_

So another 57 for Butters again next week and then he should be back into the 130’s again lol

demonsdelight

Such a muppet better of with the other muppett Rozee

Russty_

Apparently he was sick during the week too.

SchittSangers

Clouds with silver linings. If English didn’t do the hammy I would have gone Grundy for Smith JHF for Butters. I’m soooo lucky this year

Russty_

Yeah I was eying off Gresham before English was out, not sure why the hype about Smith, I’m not convinced he’s a mid keeper.

Kat

I could think of others I would want before Smith as well Russty. If I don’t cop too many injuries I may have to move Butters on soon but I heard something about he wasn’t well so we may have to cut him some slack for this weeks score

Russty_

I actually punted him last week for Brodie Kat, (when Butters scored 130) lol
Feel a bit better about it this week.

SchittSangers

Before today smiths ave was 119 (7th for mids) and only 520k. Also his TOG was over 90

Russty_

Yeah I see that, he had a similar run late in the season last year but still only ended up around 85. I guess this season will tell if he’s gone to the next level.

SchittSangers

He’s off the radar now. I’ll get Dunks instead.
How about Corey Durdin, WoW! Tripled his breakeven what an absolute gun

Russty_

Haha, he was part of my Gawn trade out some weeks back, Gawn and Durdin out, English and Jackson in. Small fwds are always usually a bust, look at Rachele today.

Kat

Well Cripps was worth keeping as long as he sees the game out

SchittSangers

I can’t understand the 1,125 who traded him out this week that’s Morrisonesque

Russty_

Sure was Kat…glad I stuck with him too, bonus he was only out a week.

SchittSangers

1129 from 11 predicted 2442
Xerri, Oliver, Grundy, Crisp, Neale (C), Witts, Jackson, Sicily, Heeney, Daicos & Martin to play
3xDNP on the bench and a massive 30 combined from the 2 who have played

Russty_

Nice !… if you hit that score you’ll probably be in the top 50 next week, I’m sitting on 1115 from 10 so fingies crossed for a decent total this week.

SchittSangers

that’s a great score from 10 has your captain played?
Who do you have left?

Russty_

Oh yeah I just checked, that’s actually from 9 and my VC was Steele. C was Dixon.
Have Crisp, Short, Sicily, Daicos, McCartin, Neale, Oliver, Witts, Gawn, Jackson, Martin, Rioli, Rosas to come.

SchittSangers

Huge score coming for you this week mate

Srixi

That cash gen sounds promising…

Russty_

I wonder if Stew Dew will make Rowell tag Neale this week, last 3 weeks he’s been tagged I think and it’s kept his scores down a bit compared to his first 2 games.

SchittSangers

Has he been tagging or has he just been going head to head with actual proven midfielders that have played more than 5 good games? Apart from the game against GWS his tackle numbers are very ordinary for a tagger.
I think he is more the victim of a team that has grown in ability and it now has better options in the midfield than the ‘Ranga Turtle’.
He’s OK when given every opportunity and spoon fed the ball from his ruck in preference to every other sun and given no attention from opposition or responsibility from his coach but when that doesn’t happen he is a very ordinary footballer. His skills are atrocious and he has zero understanding of how to play against somebody who is bigger than him.

Happilyeddyafter

Schittsangers,
You are talking about a kid thats had major ops in his 20 odd game career, you are a typical example of someone that has got lucky at a fantasy game and thinks they know what they are talking about.
Just the dumbest thing i have ever heard.

SchittSangers

Compare to another bloke who had major injuries very early like Cripps and you see that the ginger sloth is very ordinary

Derek

Did you watch him play round 1? He was a thing of beauty.

demonsdelight

Alan Richardson the former development coach at the Dees thought the same and placed him 3rd in the draft behind Green at no 1 and Anderson. He needs a top coaching staff like Brisbane or Melbourne to get him there. When Oliver came to Melbourne he was the same but better habits and coaching got him where he is .Rowell will be a top player just not yet

Derek

Sangers, that post might not age well

The Ranger

Yuk. O’Driscoll, Hayes and Durdin all onfield for a grand total of 72 from 3 players.
Gonna be a long year.

Derek

Hayes was bad luck, NOD and Durdin is rookie roulette

I have no excuses for Daniel & Whitfield

demonsdelight

Couch watchers both

derek

Daniel was on about 78 with 2 mins to go. had a kick out, straight to a Crow. Instead of going up to 80ish, went down to 67

harryhoudinis

Whitfield just killing me

holty01

Well the old Rookie Roulette (as Derek stated) has come for me and plenty this week. Thought I had dodged a bullet having Hayes with the E. I was walking around with the chest out thinking well played Holty only for Durdin to score 14.🤦 Anyway, how we all tracking this week? I see old mate Russty might be in for a big score. I will have another mediocre score I think. I’m seriously considering pulling the trigger and bring Heeney in or Oliver or Rosas. I also know Oliver has a big B/E but it is against Richmond and we all know how they leak points in the midfield

Lekdog

2 points is better than none!

holty01

I’m not sure if we were disappointing last night or if Freo are actually the real deal. Either way, it’s actually been good being up and about being a Carlton supporter this year. It’s been in some ways depressing the last decade or so.

Tophawk

Hi Holty, Besides the Macrae VC flopping, I am having a decent round. Avoided the O Driscoll, Hayes, and Rachele turds but had to suck up Butters turd after he decided to play footy whilst still crook. Currently sitting on 1288 with JHF, Neale (C), Crisp, Short, Sicily, Ridley, Daicos, Jackson, Martin, and Mc Donald to come. Hoping finish somewhere around 2350-2400. Cheers, TH

holty01

Nice work Hawk. That will be a great score. Anything over 2250 this week I think I’ll be happy with having Durdin, NOD and Butters onfield.

Russty_

Bummer about Durdin Holty, he just needs some bloody goals to score. Hoping for a decent total this week, still copped Noddy’s poxy 40

Lekdog

Rumours that Rosas will be a late-out, get ready to update those trades folks

cash_cows

hobbs it is then.
bless the trade update

holty01

Cheers Lek, made my decision a little easier. Upgrade it is.

DEESNUTSRBIG

VFL commentators said Matthew Parker was pulled from the VFL before the game so watch out for a late out from Richmond.

DEESNUTSRBIG

AFL BLOCKBUSTER Friday April 29 8.10pm
West Coast VS Richmond
Round 7 matchups not looking very good

Russty_

Rosas is OUT

Derek

Is Lohmann an option.

Upgrading Rowell to Parker, need to trade Stephens to someone under $144k

Russty_

I reckon he looked ok last week, lots of youthful exhuberance, maybe a bit clumsy at times but dead keen.

derek

very few options

One Touch Wonder

Brought in Lohmann last minute instead of Rosas so didn’t get Hayes score from the bench. Cruel game sometimes.

Russty_

Oh jeez mate that’s a crappy break, the kid was looking good too. What was the injury?…he looked very sore.

Kat

Beep beep beep, reverse trade

The G Train

Extremely torn on whether to bring in Titch or Parker this week. Not 100% either will be top 10 mid/fwd, but at the same time at their best both could easily be top 5 at their position from here on out. Leaning towards Mitchell and Parker’s BE is 120 so even if he clears that his price shouldn’t increase too much next week, would love to hear peoples thoughts.

derek

ive been tossing up all week between Cripps vs Parker vs Sicily

had Parker until a few mins ago and decided on Sicily. Parker and Cripps had fairly high BE so they can wait a week

The G Train

Yeah I was heavily considering Sic too. Might end up going Sic and then bringing in both Oliver and Parker next week if Parker looks good on the weekend. Wont be able to bring in both if I go Titch this week.

holty01

Oops, maybe not the best week to trade out Rowell.

Derek

It was always going to happen.

Kat

Murphy’s Law alright

The G Train

If i held he was getting 60 and if I traded 120, I came to terms with this before I pulled the trigger.

Russty_

Typical isn’t it mate?…the SC Gods smiting us

harryhoudinis

Hayes to Hayes going to be popular next week

Russty_

Hey Harry are you also Harries Houdinies in AFL Fantasy?

harryhoudinis

Nope just SC

Russty_

Oh ok, thought I was playing you there …close game.
Hayes to Hayes maybe for me too next week although I’d hate to lose my fwd/ruck swing

harryhoudinis

Yeah me too but seems Hayes is going to make too much money to pass up. Hopefully he plays till the byes, makes a cool 200k

SchittSangers

Damn Rowell is a spud. 5 effective kicks and 8 effective hballs, 0 marks and only 4 tackles.
Sure he had 20 contested possessions but what good to your team is getting the ball 20 times and giving it to the opposition 9 times? Lucky for Supercoach owners CD reward that sort of rubbish.
Yes he scored 103, but 12 players who are cheaper than Rowell scored 103-153.
If Oliver, Bont, Steele or Cripps have 20 contested possessions they score close to 180.
I stand by my comments that he is an over rated hack

Srixi

What’s he done to upset you so much

Russty_

He had 13 clearances though, I’m not sure if they’re the same thing as hard ball gets but hard ball gets are worth 4.5 points. I traded him out this week…. don’t think he’s a keeper, thought he might’ve been but not with scores fluctuating like that and not at that price.
I wouldn’t call a young bloke just starting out a hack, I think that’s a bit mean.

Hey chief,
If Rowell doesnt get hes 22 contested possessions Brisbane walk through the contest and win by how much? yes indeed thats correct to the point that they call for the coaches blood

Russty_

I chose the wrong young defender as my back up in defence this week although I’m not unhappy cause it’s between DeKoning and Gibcus and they both look to be coming along nicely in their progress. I think both should play out the rest of the season which means saved trades and their scores and confidence are rising.

Kat

I traded out Gibcus for O’driscoll last week. Gibcus and Hinge both weren’t playing and decided to keep Hinge as he looked to have more money to make. WIll have to wait and see if I chose the right one to trade out but Gibcus is playing well tonight

Russty_

I had Gibcus, Cripps and Rowell as my trade pans for last week Kat, English being out changed all that.
Gibcus and Hinge will probs end up being good players I reckon so there’s no wrong choice there.
In hindsight I should’ve kept Bowey and not got Rioli for him , Bowey looks a decent player, and Rioli’s role might’ve changed since big points guy Vlastuin came back.

Kat

Did you still get rid of Rowell Russty? I did this week and of course he scored well.

Russty_

Yep I did Kat haha, always the way. .got Sicily in for him.
Sucks about Paddy McCartin, hope he’s ok

JugHead

Hard to tell if the tigers defs are really that good, or its mainly because the ball was in their part of the ground a lot. Not every week the opposition kicks 22 behinds to give you 22 kick outs either……..

holty01

I was always bringing Oliver in next week. Thought he would leak a bit more cash with a B/E of 174. Oh well, at least I’ll be bringing in someone in form.

demonsdelight

Don;t think you can’t have him .His ceiling is so high. Made the rookie mistake of taking the c off him to match my only close game Rick had NEALE

Derek

Oliver racked them up in the second half. I tossed up C and went with Gawn, looked good at half time.

what are you doing with Jackson NDD?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

If I didn’t have other problems to fix up, I would be upgrading him, but he can stay for now.

demonsdelight

Haven’t got him went gawn instead

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Just had a look at the results and saw all the mistakes I made this round, taking the C off Oliver for Neale, having Dow on field over De Koning, was going to swing Voss from the fwd bench to def bench and De Koning on to the field in the fwd line. Will be looking at two trades next week J.Hayes to S.Hayes for my R3 spot and Dow who is now injured and run out of cash generation will be going for Rosas if he plays. There don’t seem to be a lot of other players on the bubble, so that will have to do.

Derek

Good Bubble boys are hard to find. Will have to wait on Rosas. Lohmann got injured as well. Hobbs might be an option and Baldwin for those without him

held off getting Preuss at R3 thinking there was more cash to be made from Hayes.

might do 3 trades next week, 2 down, 1 up. Just have to decide who else will get the chop out of Rachelle, Ward, JHF, MacDonald. Will probably depend on simple maths on how much cash required for an upgrade

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, there are plenty that are ready to go, just not a lot on offer to come in. I traded in Hobbs early. If I had been brave, I would have gone Grundy to Preuss as my R2. Was always getting S.Hayes in next week, but before the J.Hayes injury, was looking at either Dixon or Voss as the trade out.

Shake n bake

Woke up to see clarry got a lazy 169 hope having the c on him gets me a couple of wins.

demonsdelight

didn’t play you phew

Matty C

1958 from 17 (C). Held Rowell, which looks like a good move with a few rookies needing culling next week. Jackson my only underperforming player and also copped NOD and JHF on field. Sicily, Heeney, Ridley, Martin and Daicos to come. Think next week will be Hayes to Hayes, Rachele down to someone and JHF upgrade.

Matty C

2401 took me up to 362 overall!

Derek

Cracking score and rank Matty

DEESNUTSRBIG

Sicily looking like the worst kick in the comp that quarter.
How come a kick out of bounds on the full is not counted as a free kick against?

Russty_

It’s counted as a clanger which is -4

Derek

He came good, but would have been much better score if he could kick that first quarter

Shake n bake

Maybe should have put the c on Mills instead of Clarry 🤣

Russty_

That’s huge to have both Shake, massive score on the way for you this week. 🙂

Shake n bake

got a lot of dud scores aswell. Just happy l didn’t use any trades. Sitting here at the G in the basking sun. ⚪️⚫️

Russty_

Nice mate…have fun!

One Touch Wonder

First decent thing I have done this year was get Mills this week

Shake n bake

Think l play u this week.

One Touch Wonder

80pts too good Shake

Derek

Just showing off now.

I will admit I had VC on Oliver in my draft game against NDD but but the C on Mills.

any midfielder against the hawks has gone huge this year

Russty_

Nice C choice, Neil never stood a chance, kinda like me in draft this year lol

demonsdelight

Wonder if derek would like prestia for Clarry?

Derek

Melbourne have Hawks next week. Omgosh

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Oliver VC next week.

demonsdelight

Oliver is already my vc against hawkers
