Panic Room | Round 8

Published by Patch on

Gday folks, it’s your boy Patchy back in the panic room hotseat this week alongside your pal FozDaddy. And oh boy is there some panic in the air. You can smell it, like an oncoming storm. The wind may be calm now, but the skies are dark and angry and will cause a heck of a lot of damage between now and the end of the weekend.

So, on that cheery note, let’s duck into the news, presented by Patch.

NEWZ YOU CAN USE

Spoiler alert – it’s not good this week, folks.

George Hewett is not back – and, word is he might not be back next week either with the corked thigh doing a bit more bleeding than most corked thighs tend to do. I’m not a doctor but that’s not good. 

All your West Coast players are probably going to miss this week – teams won’t be officially named until later tonight but we know our sweet prince Greg Clark has the spicy cough and will miss. If you were planning on trading him in, I’d reverse that trade quick smart. Luke ‘what’s Strnadica with you?’ Strnadica will also miss.

Connor MacDonald and Kaine Baldwin will miss this week, with the former rested and the latter dropped, so if you’re relying on them for cover I’d consider other arrangements. 

Gosh, good thing you don’t own Marcus Bontempelli, eh? The Dogs’s skipper is being rested – rested! After four weeks at full forward! – for Friday night’s game, meaning Jack Macrae will probably play out of the goalsquare or something. I dunno. 

If you own Matt Crouch, one – why? And two – he’s been dropped like a sack of spuds this week. Joel Selwood will also miss, in news which will affect five Supercoachers. 

Sean Darcy is back if you held him, and while there are a host of Dockers out, none of Blake Acres, Griffin Logue, Lloyd Meek, Micahel Frederick, Rory Lobb or Travis Colyer are fantasy relevant. 

Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin are back for the Tiges, meaning Jayden Short, fresh off inking a five-year deal, might head back to the backline. Reef McInness is back out for the Pies.

Paddy McCartin is back for the Swans alongside Logan McDonald, while Alex Davies will miss after being omitted. After four years without an AFL game, Rory Thompson will return as a 123k rookie defender. Keep an eye on him.

Mitch Hinge will return for the Crows, having been named on a wing. 

Patrick Dangerfield is back this week, and at 480k is an option to look at. Cooper Stephens will make his debut in the blue and white hoops. 

A bevy of Demons headlined by Luke Jackson will return on Sunday, while Rowan Marshall has also been named.

TRADING PLACES

Patch is back in charge which means we do the Panic Room how god intended, by referencing the 1983 film Trading Places despite it being an outdated film and no quite fitting the premise. Also Patch you haven’t even seen the entire film!

Shut up, okay.

Eddie Murphys

-48 – Paul Curtis
-41 – Robbie McComb
-36 – Sam Hayes
-31 – Neil Erasmus
-26 – Toby Bedford
-14 – Malcolm Rosas Jr
-13 – Braydon Pruess
-11 – Josh Gibcus

Dan Aykroyds

200 – Jack Macrae
168 – Nick Hind
157 – Andy Brayshaw
152 – Tom Mitchell
144 – Brad Crouch
139 – Jorden De Goey
134 – Bailey Smith

Now I’ll leave it to Foz to take over for the captaincy choices.

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN

If you’ve got Lachie Neale, you have to captain him. Or vice captain him. The Brisbane jet will score 200 at a bare minimum against a decimated West Coast side. 

Max Gawn will face Rowan Marshall, and has scored 137, 135 and 126 the last three games against the Saints. His teammate, Clayton Oliver, also provides good value as a captaincy option, scoring 133 and 134 in his past two (108 in 2019). 

Pat Cripps has stunk it up against Adelaide recently (65 and 98) but is averaging 121.3 for the year and Hewett’s missing again. With no Bont, does Jack Macrae play pure mid?

Probably doesn’t affect him too much, with Bont sitting up forward all year, but Macrae has scored 115, 113 and 113 in his past three against a competitive Port, and they look average this year. 

Andy Brayshaw should score well against North, but as a non-owner who wants him in the next two weeks, I’m hoping he doesn’t tear them apart.

No Alex Witherden means Jeremy McGovern could be really rogue, he’s averaging 102.8 this year and the ball will spend 99 per cent of the time in their back six. One to ponder, but if you’ve got Neale then that’s definitely a safer pick from that game.

Anyone got the latest on Hewett?

Lukey

Thank you for easing my panic, Patch!

Who to cull for Cripps? Gotta be one of JHF, Daicos or O’Driscoll – ideally I’d keep em all as I’m struggling for warm bodies and still see some decent enough scoring until the byes from them, but can’t pass up on Cripps at that price.

Tofaco

I’d ditch O’Driscoll, reckon his two big scores were anomalies, he won’t average much or make much $$

TommyC99

Norf and suns next 2 are enticing though

Lachie

Daicos. He is tipped to be a late out after being I’ll all week and made the most money it’s a small jump to Cripps

Jordan

Daicos trained today, good to play.

Rick Grimes

Stirling stuff. Anyone concerned about Hewitt long term?

Pat

If the reports are true and he is out until round 10, with bleeding in the calf from the corkie it is definitely a worry. Either gotta pull the trigger this week or hold until he is back imo. Probably going to lose ~40-50 pts every week he is out assuming bench cover is the likes of SDK, McCartin etc.

Rick Grimes

Thanks Pat. That isn’t ideal. Food for thought.

TommyC99

Which 2 to trade out of NOD, JHF and mccartin?

Srixi

First 2

Tofaco

Love the work boys, rich buttery dollops of sarcasm from Mr Patch 👌

Jordan

Who to trade out first, Berry or JHF.

David C

Berry has been carrying an arm injury all season, could miss games at some stage. Both R14 bye which is a plus for keeping them until then.

SchittSangers

Prestia and Vlastuin are out with an illness so short might still get a run across the middle.
Hewett is a calf injury I think and from memory calves can be troublesome critters often taking 6+ weeks but they are always ‘looking good to go’ every thursday night. Might be the week to turn Hewett into something else.

David Horsnell

Slayers

Slayers

Who to trade in Tracks or Parker?

holty01

Parker

Ned_Starkers

I fell for the gain trade out hack earlier in the season, floated to English which was ok while it lasted, but now here I am with Pruess, S Hayes and Dixon… do I let that ride for a little longer and keep topping up the midfield/fwd line or do I need to correct that now?
I could do add two of tracc/miller or Parker this week or Gawn and a rook.

Ned_Starkers

*Gawn trade (bloody auto-correct)

SchittSangers

You’ll only have 1 ruck Ned so you may as well get Gawn now

SchittSangers

with regard to Pt Hayes. after screwing my team last week I refuse to acknowledge that he is a player in supercoach anymore

Derek

Oh dear, last week was bad. I’m just hoping it was more to do with the conditions and lack of stoppages rather than how bad he is at football. I need to field him again tonight. Lord give him strength.

Derek

Much better big fella

One Touch Wonder

following my SHARK MOVES of Mills Round 6 & Parker Round 7. Thomas Liberatore is my Round 8 addition.

Derek

Libba was 75 at half time but faded like all the other Bulldogs
not a bad in. Big POD

Derek

JR SURVIVOR GROUPS

“The sculptor produces a beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is the process of elimination”

I believe when Elbert Hubbard made that quote, he was talking about the eliminating of teams from the JR Survivor Groups. For the remaining teams that merge into the Champion of Champions group, they will be the beautiful statue he is referring to.

This week there were a further 3 teams from each division (plus a 4th from Division 8 to even up the divisions).

ELIMINATIONS

Jaidyn Squeakinson from Div 6 was able to use their Immunity necklace again this week. I mean ‘again’, because they also dodged a bullet in round 3 by having immunity from round 2, talk about hot n cold, well done Squeaky. The flow on effect of that was to eliminate our 2019 champion – Brock’s Beasts.

BONECRUSHER from Div 8 was also celebrating having immunity this week, and will live to fight another day.

The following teams have been eliminated this week:

Div 1: Kiss my Butters, Fighting Mermaids & Super Bees
Div 2: Grog Squad, LynchPins & The A team
Div 3: Team JP, Cream rises & The Green Shoots
Div 4: Mediocore, Phatmans Clan & The Filth
Div 5: Iridium 192, NoMoneyNoHoney, Subi188s
Div 6: Naurulz, Thillerz & Brock’s Beasts
Div 7: Pretty Average, K1ng Draper & ChoConMien Tay
Div 8: Gags’ Gaggle, BOQer juniors, WhateverItTakes & Team Daz
Div 9: Happy Mundys, Mooses & WHO DARES WINS

IMMUNITY

As you can see, having immunity is a big deal, especially as the numbers are rapidly reducing, the odds of elimination are increasing.

The following teams have Immunity this week and can not be eliminated.

Div 1: Robocops (2638)
Div 2: King Maximus (2656)
Div 3: Team MAYhem (2632)
Div 4: Wombats (2608)
Div 5: Same Olds (2665)
Div 6: Meepy Misfits (2588)
Div 7: Point Nank Range (2605)
Div 8: Stoopid Llamas (2584)
Div 9: ThePeoplesChampion (2605)

As you can see, some ripping good scores last week.

Shout out this week to a community favourite, SchittSangers who is ranked overall 203 but came within 3 points of elimination last round (one of the few weeks they didn’t have immunity).

*****4 teams to be eliminated from Div 8; 3 teams from all other divisions*****

thanks fellas.

holty01

Hi mate. Great work again this season with this. Also, am I still in it?

Derek

you are still surviving (Div 7)

holty01

Must be only just

SchittSangers

Thanks Derek I was served a few Schitt sandwiches by a few team members last week hopefully this week I can grab some immunity

holty01

Good luck everyone this week. Anyone got any news for the week as I haven’t had any time to do any research. 😩

Lazza

So, bank McComb’s 73 or risk a bigger score from Carroll?

K.Sinny

Bank it surely

Lazza

Cheers KS..,I’ll have to make the call before the Hawks game tonight .. at this point McComb’s score is locked in..

Tiger

Thinking of bringing in Steel but I’m thinking now that the saint’s are travelling much better does Viney go to him. Thoughts ? Thanks.

David C

Time to start thinking about the byes and Steele is a R12 bye player. Better to bring in post his bye now.

demonsdelight

yep I am avoiding R12 players even trading Cogs and Hayes to a doggie

Derek

NDD what do you think of Libba? I saw OTW trade him in and now thinking he might be an option?

demonsdelight

I am a big fan well worth looking at particularly his role where he now looks to be the no.1 mid choice in front of macca and bont

Derek

He averages 105 like clockwork and as a forward, that will do

Derek

Another week with my Three Amigos in defence.

I tell you, they do my head in.

I’m referring to:
Ridley = Dusty Bottoms (Chevy Chance)
Whitfield = Lucky Day (Steve Martin)
Daniels = Ned Nederlander (Martin Short)

im just waiting for the day when they are good, all good at the same time.

gareth

hey guys are a little help, I have $635k to upgrade another rookie mid to premo
I have steele,oliver,mccrae,neale,cripps, tossing up between walsh and laird, unless there is somelese else you might think has a better run like Merrett?

Derek

I have same 5. I’m adding Touk this week and hopefully Petracca next week (although I’m tempted to ‘deal’ with Butters next week)

gareth

sorry i also have touk

Derek

Laird, Walsh and Merrett hard to split. All just over $600k and all averaging about 113 and should continue to average same for rest of the year.

Petracca has some upside. Is $70k cheaper even though averaging 115. I think he is underachieving this year, but still going at 115 ave

has games against West Coast and North rounds 9 & 10, if you were planning to get him you can’t miss out on those games.

I’ll prob get him next week, even if means trading out Daicos

gareth

Thats are very strong case – I might see how todays games pan out and can easily trade pertracca in later today. thanks mate

Derek

NDD is a Melb fan and not sold on Petracca being top 10. I can see him being in that Laird, Merrett, Walsh range or there abouts, but his price gets the nod.

Derek

Think I’ll get Touk this week, planned to have him at some stage and he won’t be under $600k again

tempted to get Petracca, but he will be my target next week for the slaughter that will happen rounds 9 & 10, trouser stretching stuff.

holty01

Nice. I don’t think I’ll grab Petracca. Very tempting at his price but not sold he will be top 10 in the midfield. TOUK on the other hand is a great get at the price right now

demonsdelight

Yep Derek I too am not sold on Trac It was out of Tout or Stewart for my trade of Butters Defence is more needed

Derek

I’m ignoring my defence any my three amigos

demonsdelight

When are you doing your maths for the last 4 or 5 or is it done? I appear to be 1 premium short again so rookie choices are important .might have to revisit culling Hayes money to be had there as well as watching those last few prems you are usually around 530 Relying on motlops like Fisher and J Clarke the last few years won’t work /getting Tout now is super important or maybe Ross

jonooo

Take the Macrae 144 VC loop or be greedy and go for Neale vs WAFL?
Feels absurd to be asking the question with a 144 score, but Neale could genuinely rack up

holty01

Take 144

Last edited 3 months ago by holty01
demonsdelight

In a blink ,take it

harryhoudinis

I’m concerned they’ll rest Neale in the second half with the game sewn up. I’d take it

Russty_

More often than not, if you don’t take a score like that, it’ll come back to bite you.

holty01

Bloody Butters

demonsdelight

Ler’s face it Holty he wasn’t a keeper and lets you down i traded him this week to Stewart but half the reason was his bye Though not ideal I now have 18 each of 3 Feel your pain with him NDD

holty01

He had me fooled. Thought he could honestly be a top 10. How wrong I’ve been. I’ll keep him however until the byes I think and reassess from there. Can’t be too hard on myself though as this year’s forward line was slim pickings at first but I think now we have a better understanding of who will be up there come season’s end

demonsdelight

more dpps coming too.English even as a pure fwd must be looked at

Derek

Talk to John about my dislike for Butters preseason, but somehow he started in my team ahead of Taranto.
he still has high ownership so not hurt having him, but this can’t go on, I have traded up my sleeve, he will turn into Petracca next week

demonsdelight

The Dees chased hard for him and no doubt talented but too hot and cold for mine Pendlebery looks interesting Playing back suits him but Isee he goes mid late in games wonder why

holty01

I’m holding him now until the byes. May regret it but he has shown he can go large from time to time

harryhoudinis

Butters is as effective as Professor Chaos

Lazza

He’s gone from my team for R12..

demonsdelight

Wonder if I can get Shake twice in a row In Lek and Patches we are again separated by less than 10 he is certainly tough to beat

Russty_

Will be close mate, good start by you not having Butters.

demonsdelight

Just dont trust him and stewart wont get cheaper

SchittSangers

I need another defender
I can trade Dixon for Strnadica and take Hayes’ score and then trade Durdin to Short as D6 using SDK

or

I can trade Jacko to Preuss and Durdin to Short

I don’t like the idea of relying on Hayes for 2 weeks and I also don’t like the idea of trading Jacko when he has some juicy games coming

If I trade Jackson for Preuss I will have Gresham at F6 and Carroll at M8 Hayes R3
If I trade Dixon for Strnda I will have Jacko F6 and loop Gresham & Carroll @ M8 and stdna @R3
In both scenarios I get Parker next week and Gawn the week after

SchittSangers

Or I could trade Gresham to Preuss, have Jacko F6, Carroll M8

demonsdelight

relying on jacko at f6 is bold I would go jacko to preuss

SchittSangers

Thanks for the opinion. You think Gresham is a better option at F6 until the byes than Jacko?

demonsdelight

My oath I do shitt Gresham has really turned it around I may even use a boost to trade hewett to him if neale fails

SchittSangers

I kept Gresham mate and did some ‘smoke + Mirrors” Scitt with the trade and dpp gizmo.
Turned out good

SchittSangers

OR
A super Risky Hewett to Short, Dixon to Strnda and Gresham/Jacko to Parker

demonsdelight

the only risk is hayes really and good bye fwd/ruck english combo Possibly gawn / english may end the best ruck combo and i dont want to lose that by culling dixon

SchittSangers

Yeah I started English & dropped him as soon as he did the Hammy. I wont bring him back before the byes unless he goes big immediately.
Only need 18 onfield each week and if I can make sure that at least 17 are keepers/premo scoring level I don’t really care if I have 4 fwds or defs out or all 3 rucks. if I have 8 of the top 10 available midfielders each bye week

ST1974

Needs some help. Can’t decide between the following:

Daicos to Carroll and Bowey or Hewett to Stewart/Short
MacDonald to Carroll and Daicos to Anderson or
Hewett to D Rioli and Daicos to Parker

Appreciate any thoughts or advice.

SchittSangers

I read this on a sports Science page. Hewetts injury is quoted as being a corky rather than a strain but who knows it could be both, I mean Stocker is listed as being out for 1 week with suspension but in reality he is out for 3 with an AC joint injury.

” Calf injuries are potentially declining due to the sports science division having an impact on training strategies as well as rest and recovery. Games missed per team has decreased significantly since 2010.
Calf strains can cause a player to miss anywhere from 2-6 weeks, depending on the severity and how many times the injury has happened. ”

From another page on the same site
-Grade 1 calf strain (1-3 weeks). With a grade 1 strain, there will be tightness in the back of the lower limb and may cause a minor limp.

-Grade 2 calf strain (4-8 weeks).With a grade 2 strain the limp will be much more noticeable and pain with walking will be present, with feeling of twinges or cramping feelings with activity.

-Grade 3 calf strain (6 – 12 weeks). A grade 3 calf strain is a severe injury involving a complete tear to half or all of the calf muscle. Crutches or even a moon boot may be required to enable walking due to severe pain and weakness

I’m certain Hewett isn’t grade3 but he could easily miss another week or 2 as Carlton now have the midfield depth to let him recover fully and beyond doubt. If he comes back next he will be 40k more expensive at his rnd 12 bye

Deafness (DM)

Parker or Touk to bring in this week?

Derek

I’m expecting a big response from Suns this week with Touk leading from the front

Deafness (DM)

Thanks, ended up taking your advice. So far so good hopefully he keeps chugging along

SchittSangers

That turned out to be some great advice Derek, Parker will only go up 15k and Deafness is already 20pts better off

Derek

At half time Parker was on 75, hit the wall in the second half.

I still think Parker is a good addition to the team

SchittSangers

Yep he’s on my radar I have more spuds in the forward line than there are in the LNP cabinet

holty01

So Mills and Touk went head to head at the beginning of the match. By quarter time Touk was smashing him. Horse decides we can’t have this so puts the tag to Touk. Since then Touk has been kept quiet and Mills is getting his hands to the ball and is helping Sydney claw their way back. Considering Dews job is probably on the line, surely he could learn from Horse and maybe try nullifying Sydney’s best midfielder. Just a thought.

SchittSangers

Mills finished with 60 and Miller 109. Maybe Dew did pull some coaching magic to keep Mills quiet?

Derek

Gee the Swans looked poor in the second half. I think Mills and Parker scored 30pts between them

Derek

Miller finished on 122

holty01

Miller was on 60 at quarter time. Mills was on 9. Mills I think gave up points in the last. In the end a good win by GC.

Russty_

Yeah Rick Grimes will be stoked with the win…..Touk has been copping a lot of tags lately.

SchittSangers

He’s had a few slow starts as well but I might get him and Rioli this week for Coniglio 1 of Jackson, Martin, Gresham.
1 of those 4 is my F7 and I haven’t been able to pick the right one for onfield all year so if I don’t have the choice I wont have the stress

Russty_

Good point!…too many good players can be very frustrating constantly leaving points on the bench.

SchittSangers

855 from 8
Bloody Heeney is in the gun & Dunkley gets a stern warning
Will be benching Martin to get McCartins score

Russty_

Think you just gotta stick with your guys when they drop a few stinkers, otherwise trades will become an issue.

SchittSangers

I think there might 6 or 7 better forwards than Heeney this year, time to get rid of Coniglio as well

Russty_

Yeah cogs was mucho disappointo!

Nifty

Hey guys, read there could be at least 5 changes in the Bombers team.. They said Ridley, Guelfi & Kelly all likely to be late outs..

Derek

I’m happy to take McCartins score instead of Ridley playing

Nifty

MacDonald late in for Wingard if anyone using him as a C loop..

SchittSangers

thanks for the warning I was using Mcdonald to loop McCartin

Nifty

No worries SchittSangers..

Russty_

Cheers Nifty

Nifty

No worries Russty_

Lazza

FFS… I missed it .. McComb score gone and didn’t get the opp to move Carroll on field… 🤞

SchittSangers

How did you go in lotto this week Lazza? 🙂

Matty C

First donut of the year. No Ridley, Hewett or Vlastuin. Ouch.

Russty_

Ridley is a definite out.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I was expecting that and moved Daicos to the back bench with the E.

Russty_

Good coverage John, spewing I benched Paddy MCartin today, thought he’d be a bit rusty after his week off and alleged concussion lol

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I originally had Daicos at M7 and McCartin on the back bench with the E and Hewett on field in def. As soon as Ridley was in doubt today and after McComb scored 73 last night, I moved Hewett to the midfield, McCartin on field and Daicos to the back bench with the E. Then if Daicos didn’t score 70+, I had Hinge to move on field.

Russty_

Good planning John, worked well.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Going alright this round, have the right rookies on field, the VC on Neale. Haven’t looked at my league match ups, but no excuses this round, will mainly lose games because I have more rookies on field than other teams, but I’m happy where I’m at. I could have used a boost to get Touk in, but wanted to save a boost and trade since I’m down to 22 left.

Russty_

Saw you got Hayes’ score via Jack Hayes…is he your loophole now John? I don’t see any other intentional donuts. At least that’s some spare money for you I guess when you’re ready to cash him in.
Will you take Neale’s score if he hits 130?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, Jack is my loophole, happy with the other Hayes as my R2 for now. Thinking I will take the 123 from Neale, it’s over my 120 bench mark, Max will probably score more and cost me some close games, but after not taking the 119 from Oliver last week, I don’t want to chance it. Looking at my matchups, I should win 2, lose 4 and 4 in doubt, but more likely on the lose side if Max scores more than Neale. Did I say right rookies on field, how about Hobbs, had him on the bench for 93, last week on field for 13, rookie roulette is right.

Russty_

It’s a cruel game sometimes mate , if you stick with a rookie they can come good eg DeKoning, Gibcus, Hobbs, they can also shaft you bigtime. I think a big indicator maybe as a tell next season is….how often were they named in the best 22?…and not on the bench.

SchittSangers

Serious supercoaching there John.
This is the first weekend that I’ve taken the opportunity to make mid round changes and after you master the trade reverse system it can be very beneficial

SchittSangers

Yeah with SDK, MCCartin, Daicos all going well as defenders I didn’t think that out would cause too many issues. Ridely was just as likely to score less than all 3 of them than he was to get his predicted 101

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

The defence rookies have turned out to be pretty good. Hard to know which one to upgrade, which is the main reason I haven’t yet, though I might have to get Sicily in next week. I’ve had him in my watchlist since round one and each week I think, I need to get him in, but there is always something else to attend to.

SchittSangers

Do you have Docherty?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

No.

SchittSangers

Witts is turning out to be the best of the midpricers that I started 380k at the start and now has a 3round ave of 137.
Compared to Max Witts has had 1 more game under 100 but up until today also 1 more game of 130+ Witts is only averaging 9less than Max (before today) and he will be close to 600k to buy after today with an ave of 119 but he will still be almost 100k cheaper than Max

Russty_

I’m stoked I started him, he’s exceeded all expectations, thought he’d just be a stepping stone ruck but he’s a keeper so far.

Derek

I didn’t even think he would play round 1

SchittSangers

He’s even better than Hickey was last year. 2 Years in a row avoiding set & Forget and going with Set & upgrade has been the best ruck starting option

SchittSangers

I set the wrong one this year (Grundy)

Russty_

Remember the pre-season hype about Grundy though?…he’s leaner, fitter, hungrier than ever…blah blah blah haha

SchittSangers

Yeah Collingwood supporters and the media would call a black & white turd ‘the best xyz to ever play football”

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

You did well Russty, Gawn and Witts were the way to go.

Russty_

Except I traded Gawn to English and then English back to Gawn haha

SchittSangers

You started Gawn with Witts.
Guttsy call than came good after the 1st 3 weeks

Russty_

Yeah I did, then traded out Gawn when I thought Jackson was affecting his scoring too much…got English in and it looked like a good call until Gawn started scoring well and Jackson crap, English was going great and then he got injured.
If I get English back in the fwd line all will be good.

Last edited 3 months ago by Russty_
SchittSangers

I’ll be bet Getting Gawn in after bye and also English.
I’m banking on English having a couple of gentle games when he comes back and dropping a few K
Other than that my team is set after I get Miller this week

SchittSangers

I’m hoping that 8 trades post bye will be enough to maintain a competitive team

Russty_

It’ll depend on the forthcoming injuries, 8 trades left after the byes will rely on a fair bit of luck I feel to not run out.

One week can ruin you if you don’t have trades…if several injuries or covid stuff hits in one week.

SchittSangers

Yeah I’ve had a LOT of bad luck so far this season, C on Cripps when he got 38, English, Grundy, Hewett, Xerri, only getting my C on one of my top 5 players for the week twice and the covid crap when others are injured.

I’m planning for a lot more good luck in the back half and not having to upgrade anybody

Russty_

Well then best of luck to you young man! I hope you smash the hell out of the rest of the season. If you aim big and risk much and fail spectacularly, at least you can say you went for the big prize and were in the running…and you risked it for the biscuit.
If you play it safe and are content to finish in the top 10% or in with the also rans so as to avoid embarrassment, and then you achieve that…or worse than that, then that probably wouldn’t be all that satisfying.

SchittSangers

LOL “young man”
My girlfriend is almost 20 younger and she’s considered “Over the hill”

Russty_

You’re only as young as the girl you’re feeling haha

SchittSangers

‘Girls’ do not excite me or interest me. I like women, sexy lasts a lot longer than pretty.

Russty_

Tommy Stewart all burned out after last week’s big effort?

Lazza

Good. He’ll be cheaper when I’m ready to get him.. 🙃

SchittSangers

Yeah I don’t rate him as top 6

Russty_

Really? I think he is, but it’s ever changing, especially this year Ziebell was a top def last year, now he’s a fwd again and averaging 79

SchittSangers

Obviously its a fluid statement and he’s always a good selection due to his concistency I just think that with the new rule of DPP being allocated at multiple times during the season his eventual 110 average wont be top 6.
ATMO I have Pendle & Cumming in front of him as the only additions to my def and it will be Pendle replacing McCartin caz my def is finished when Hewett comes back. Doch,Hewett,Short,Crisp, Sicily, Sinclair, after byes Pendle will be at D7 looping with whoever is likely to crap the bed in the early rounds

SchittSangers

*early games*

Russty_

I put Pendles in my side this week to replace Hewett, was looking like a bit of a fail until he got scaled from 85 to 97. When you’re at the pointy end of the season and one of your top 6 def chargers goes down with a sore dick or something, you’ll be glad you kept McCartin on the bench then.

SchittSangers

Nah I will be very happy that I traded McCartin to Pendles for D7/M9 cover and booted that unconscious bloke

demonsdelight

Shitt’s got to be tongue in cheek Who’s better than Stewart ?

SchittSangers

Hahahaha
I already named them NDD. Keepers matter over the season not the last 3 weeks

Lazza

Bummer, he beat his BE, so won’t be cheaper after all… at least he won’t go up much.

Deafness (DM)

Nice Ridley late out so donut here

SchittSangers

That type of thing is the worst luck that you can have in supercoach

Russty_

Hey Nick…so no DeKoning, Gibcus, Daicos or McCartin as a backup?

Lazza

Good week being screwed up with loopholes … now have missed De Koning’s 82 and left with Rosas miserable 18.. then Wingard turns up his toes and MacDonald starts and I’ll miss McComb’s 73.
Almost glad that Hewett is out .. it guarantees McCartin’s 94 and gives me what is now my only loophole for Neale…
Looks like 100+ out the window ..

Bad luck with McDonald there mate, I hate using a guy who “might” be a late in, only definite donuts for me. At least you get Paddy’s score, but Rosas must be hard to swallow, what a spud lol, he was -5 for most of the game. I have his spud ass too.

SchittSangers

Yeah it’s not all beer & skittles.
One week some people are gifted with monster scores across the board and the opportunty to loop good scores and then make dramatic climbs up the ratings board because others get hit with schitt sandwiches served by 500k+ players having their worst game for the year.
The next week things are reversed and those got the crap now get the cream

Chieftan

Butters 52, Cogs 70, Dunks 78, Treloar 74, Heeney 75, Stewart 74, Rosas 18, Ridley 0, abysmal round for me.

Russty_

Unlucky mate, on any other week those top 6 could ton up, although I’d be punting Butters, no back up for Ridley?

SchittSangers

10 Completed both onfield rookies have played for 80 98 but only 5 scores over 100
Total b4 Lions game 1,031

Russty_

1606 from 16 here, Captain hasn’t played yet, it’ll be Oliver, Gawn, Cripps or Steele for me.
How’s your initial prediction stacking up to the present?

SchittSangers

It’s now 1375 from 13 no captain yet
I can’t remember the initial prediction and I changed some trades today, I think after that my predicted was 2455.
Since then I’ve moved some loopys on field to maximise bench points and my predicted is only 2388 but I can replace nankervis’ 19 with McCartins 94 would give a predicted of 2461

Russty_

That looks pretty healthy, I’m in ten competitive leagues and the majority of predictions are in the 2300’s

SchittSangers

Thats good to know, I might make up for ranking 49,000+ last week

Russty_

You’re still top 200 or thereabouts so still in it for a red hot crack. Not that hard to make up 200 points in one week if one of your pods fires.

Derek

I’ve got the standard; Gawn, Oliver, Steele & Cripps to play. If they get 500 between them I’ll be looking at around 2350. That should win more matches than lose this week. Think I might have Shake covered.

SchittSangers

What is your team called Russty? I want to set up a rivalry. If John, Derek and NDD want to be included just tell me your team names as well.

Russty_

Yeah no worries, B-Town Saints

SchittSangers

Done

SchittSangers

Your uniques this wekk
Parker, Rioli, Gibcus, O’Driscoll. Rosas, Voss, Long Dixon,

SchittSangers

I didn’t finish 🙂
Gawn, Rachelle

My Uniques, Keays, Heeney, Docherty, Green, Gresham, Jackson, Carroll, Nankervise, Strnadica, Hough

Russty_

I did Hewett out for Pendles and Rachele out for Carroll this week.

Derek

Do you play SC draft.

I’ll be starting a mid-season draft league that kicks off after the byes.

SchittSangers

Thanks for the offer Derek but I only have time for 1 game

Derek

Do you think Gresham is still a keeper with Jones back. He seemed the one effected the most

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Black Flag.

Derek

My team is the Bundeena Bunnies (I know silly name, we live in Bundeena and we have a bunch of stupid rabbits)

SchittSangers

I set it up. Do you know how to display a ‘head-to-head’ with rivalries

Lazza

Same Capt options for me Russty… sitting on 1673 with those 4 to play. SC is predicting 2319 with Gawn as Capt. Still unsure who to put the C on.

Russty_

I’m thinking Cripps could be the man this week Laz.

holty01

Needing 364 from Steele, Cripps and Oliver to crack 2300.

Derek

Does Sam Mitchell even know who Tom Mitchell is?

Russty_

Maybe not?…he’s looking far from the ball piggy he once was, he was a solid C choice every week.

dontblushbaby

I bought TMitch in 3 weeks ago thinking he might be POD being in only 6% of teams, fool me

Derek

I was certainly starting him this year. Locked in. Then he missed the AAMI game and I passed.

it’s a pity a few more of my players didn’t miss the AAMI

SchittSangers

Wasn’t he the British bloke who called himself a Major and took a brigade of British troopers through south western NSW and Northern & Central Victoria on a genocide tour?

SchittSangers

I’m sure Sam would know bout him he’s in all the history books

demonsdelight

you;re thinking of a cockatoo

SchittSangers

Yes you are referring to the Pink & White Cockatoo that genocidal Tom said he was the first human to witness.
It;s probably for the better future if Australia doesn’t consider that type of person a hero and name extraordinary animals species after them

Tophawk

Do they both know how to Butters’ bread? I rest my case. Get on with it.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Tell ya what mate you struck Brown and gold in the mid season draft last year.
Jai is just good at football!

TRIGGA HAPPY

And
Scimshaw is he in a purple patch.
Could round out d6 nicely.

SchittSangers

Dusty might be a nice sneaky F7 in a week or two

Happilyeddyafter

Never heard so much crap in all my life, i think you are the moron supercoach wow from a few years back that caused everyone to leave

SchittSangers

Cheer up

demonsdelight

i thought so too and more or less put in a few questions Same name and abundance of footy knowledge quotes and writes similar but this one is enjoyable and helpful to the community remember he didnt like Russty whereas now they are besties Long time back and time heals Don’t know what the crap was but you gotta agree he is so right about the major and other so called heroes NDD

SchittSangers

I don’t really understand this. Are you referring to me?

Srixi

I’m actually supercoach wow

SchittSangers

Still doesn’t help me understand any better srixi
What is supercoach wow?

Lock key

Dude.. you don’t know a supercoach wow?

Srixi

It was name before I was banned
Played really well one year and lots of people got mad

Kev 2 3

Captain oh Captain, had VC on Neale, take it or leave it? Git burnt with Mcrae last week, have Gawny, Steele and Cripps to play. Currently got the C on Gawny, cheers 🍻

The Lost Boys

Same question from me with the same options available! Feels like Neale’s is just a tad too low to keep

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I always take a 120+ score.

holty01

Apologies as I haven’t been paying much attention this year to SC due to family and work commitments but just checked out the ranks and realised 2 of our regulars on here are smashing it this year. Keep up the great work Shake and Russty and all others in the community doing well this year.

Russty_

Cheers Holty but I think that’ll change after this round, I had the C on Gawn unfortunately, thought I had it on Cripps. Looks like everyone’s taking a hit this week with some underperforming premos

Lazza

Trying to workout if Carroll or Cottrell is the Emergency… neither has touched the ball yet..

Russty_

Oh wonderful!…just to top off a crap week already

Lazza

Don’t sweat it.. he’s just topped Rosas turd..

Russty_

He’s actually almost 60 now so not bad after a scoreless 1st quarter.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Kid can play. Not bad for 3 qtrs.

Shake n bake

Cheers Holty same as myself because l work 2 jobs hard to get on this site. 32hrs worked this weekend. I try thou & like to get on every time l can. Got Cripps as capt hope he and your blues get the job done.

TRIGGA HAPPY

I hear ya mate.
Can’t imagine two jobs
1 is taking up way too time and SC is suffering gosh darnit.

Shake n bake

Did 6am till 10pm sat, sun. So didn’t look at match ups or get to read as much as others on here. I get to speak to a lot of players with one of my jobs l do. Sometimes l think it gets to much but always give it go.

Russty_

Jeez mate you’re going great this year for someone who has no time, nice work.

Shake n bake

Had a couple of lean weeks. Might do no trades this weekend if all selected. Just hope players like butters mills & bowey can pull there finger out

The Ranger

Haha ha…my year is going from bad to hilarious.
Copped a donut due to Ridleys late out.
Oh and apologies to Dunkley owners, I brought him in this week.

Russty_

How about Gawn Ranger…did you do something to him? LOL

holty01

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Steele fumble so much in a game before.

Lazza

Helped me win a money league.. came down to Capt Gawn vs Capt Steele.. who’d have picked that ..🙄

Lazza

Thought I might help everyone out for the rest of the season… I’ll let you know who my Capt is so that you can all pick someone else ..🙃
Record so far:
R1 Miller 274 .. doesn’t count for H2H
R2 Soligo 14 .. freakin E played trying to loophole Macrae 284
R3 Neale 210.. 🥱
R4 Cripps 76 … (injured)
R5 Macrae 306 .. Yay
R6 Neale 216 🙄
R7 Macrae 178 … FFS
R8 Gawn 164 😡
Pathetic Average of 180. 🤢

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Getting the VC right can set the round up nicely if you get it right. I’ve only had to use my C three times out of the eight rounds so far and last week I should have taken the VC, instead of getting greedy. Record so far: R1 Macrae VC 133×2. R2 Macrae VC 142×2. R3 Neale C 105×2. R4 Macrae VC 158×2. R5 Macrae VC 153×2. R6 Neale C 108×2. R7 Macrae C 89×2 after not taking the 119 from VC Oliver. R8 Neale 123×2.

Russty_

You could’ve told me before the Melbourne game you were gonna go Maxy haha

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Shake putting the C on Cripps has won him his match up against me. If only he had put it on Gawn like 4 of my opponents, I might have had a chance.

Russty_

Did you watch the game John, was it Jackson taking Max’s rucktime?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Didn’t watch it Russty, but Jackson coming back was the reason I didn’t put the C on Max. If Neale had gone below 120, I would have gone with Oliver.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m in front by 4 pts before scaling

Shake n bake
