Ned Starkers

Thanks for the pod as usual gents, always something good to consider from it.
2488 for me last week. Been a while since I put in a top 50 round result so stoked with that. Rucks are a mess (Pruess, Hayes, Dixon) so I’ve gotta work that out. Daicos, Martin and maybe Rowell are my only other upgrades left.

Rick Grimes

Pruess could be a keeper. 110 average and very consistent.

Ned Starkers

Thanks Rick, who’d you take as #1. Does it have to Be Gawn in the long run? Might wait till the byes and make sure he is injury free… and cheaper. Or maybe Witts or English (if he comes back from injury well).

Rick Grimes

I still think Gawn is no1, but you’ll be able to get him cheap in a couple rounds. I’d want to see English get through a game. Witts is probably no2. Those who started him had a massive leg up on the others. He’s always been a good ruck but now has the midfield to take advantage of it. Has injury concerns, but they all do.

Russty_

Gold Coast are really coming along finally Andy, Witts and co are having a good year and are a chance to make the top 8 which is awesome for them.

Derek

Tough to get Preuss when you know we could have had him for $208k. Kicking myself, decided to get Hayes instead, more cash to be made i told myself

Rick Grimes

The problem with Brayshaw is he can’t handle a tag. If he’s left alone, he’ll score 160. But teams target him and he struggles to ton up

Footyman74

I’d argue he handles a tag ok but doesn’t work it out quick enough to save his SuperCoach score. Fyfe due back next few weeks so should escape the tag from then.

Rick Grimes

I’d tag Brayshaw. Questionable whether Fyfe is still no1 at Freo.

TommyC99

For those who don’t have a playing R3, what do you intend on doing if gawn doesn’t get up this week? I would have penciled bringing English in if he plays but doesn’t look like he will

Rick Grimes

Could always trade Gawn to another premo ruck and get him back $100k cheaper in a couple of weeks (in place of Hayes/Pruess, assuming one of those guys is your current R2) Is Gawn even essential? The way other lines are scoring, maybe not.

Derek

that was my plan last week if Gawn didn’t play, to straight trade Gawn to Darcy (look what Darcy did last week)

i did get Begg for cover…… 10pts. seriously! and then Dixon played!

Rick Grimes

Anyone jumping on Dusty? Looked very good last game. Thinking Cogs to Dusty is a good trade up.

VossTheBoss

Richmond have played some poor teams in the last 3 weeks, so im just wondering can they still win games against better sides and does he keep up that 100+ scoring when losing
In saying that, im considering the same trade but would need to use a boost to do it, im doing Ward and Steele to Sicily and Clarke via Daicos swing which completes my backline

JoeStar

Brad Crouch is a great option for replacing Steele.
The only alarm bell is the game where he had 15 kicks + 9 handballs + 5 Tackles + 2 Free Kicks + 1 Mark – 3 free kicks against but, only scored 49 SC! Yes only 49 and he got 20points from tackles and being crouch I’d say at least 6 of his 24 disposals would have come from hard ball gets which equals another 24 points so that is 44 points meaning he only scored 9 points for 15 kicks and 9 hballs (subtracting 4 for 1 free against)
That looks like somebody at champion data has a personal grudge against him because in games where he has had less kicks, less tackles and less frees for he scored double that. If the same hater gets more saints games Brad could be a huge loss to your team

Rick Grimes

That’s tin foil hat territory. I think you can wait a week on Crouch. If he goes massive again, that’s a trend.

JoeStar

No it’s not thats fact.
46 points from tackles, hard ball gets and marks so he only scored 3 points from 15 kicks and 9 handballs. His disposal efficiency was terrible at 47% in total and only 28% for kicks but that is still 5 effective kicks(20 points) and 6 effective handballs(9points) so he should have had 29 points minimum from his disposals plus the 47 from tackles,marks and hardballs that equals a minimum 76 not including handball receives which are 1.5 points each. Even a dodo know nothing like you should be able to that his score in that game was deliberately scored incorrectly

Srixi

He had 11 clangers that game.
So I’d say he was lucky get 49.

David C

I do get tired of the anti CD angle, they just do a job we don’t understand. The biased stuff is just crap.

Russty_

Think I’d prefer Petracca, Bont , Wines or even Warner to Crouch, Good luck if you pick him though…will be a huge pod.

Nathan

Crouch ticks all the boxes…EXCEPT disposal efficiency!! Thats why nobody talks about him when comparing him to, well… every other midfielder in the game. It is hard to think he can miraculously clean up this flaw. Avoid.

Cobba

Thoughts on McGovern finishing the year top 10 defender? Seems to be scoring well and its coming down there a fair bit

Nathan

Given it comes in his zone several hundred times a game, you could argue he has plenty of opportunity lol

JugHead

Question……. If Buku Khamis plays as a Dogs forward until the next SC position change, will he get Def/Fwd dpp?

JoeStar

There is a games played minimum to qualify and I think that the minimum games is 5

Pieman

You need to play at least 6 games by round 12 to qualify for dpp. I’m guessing by round 18 it will be 9 games needed to play so he would have to play pretty much every game until then

Russty_

Thanks for the pod fellas, some food for thought there, enjoyed the 30 minute format. Raining here today so you will also find me..in my house, lol
I’ve heard Jack Crisp missed training with some kind of stomach bug, hoping it doesn’t spread through the club!

harryhoudinis

Very torn this week. I’ve had enough of Whitfield and Cogs but it’s hard to neglect the new coach factor. How often do we see some players get a new lease on life? So I’ll probably hold and be cursing the decision a few weeks later…. but hey who knows!

Martin looking shaky now too but part of me also wants to wait for the R12 DPP changes. Bont as a fwd is an absolute gift

Derek

and look who GWS are playing…

harryhoudinis

Yep Petracca in last week worked. I suspect I will hold those 2. Potentially 1 trade, might get R Thompson in as D8 for the rest of the year. I’m assuming he has good JS and 50 pts off the bench is better than a donut

Shake n bake

Crisp might be out this week

Lazza

Shake, we may have to refer to you as The Cassandra … do you have some good news … pleeeeease

demonsdelight

do you have him?

Lazza

Yep, since R1…

TRIGGA HAPPY

Thanks Josh for yiyr service and $$ made.
But I think the time has come to
Get “On the right TRAC. 😁

demonsdelight

Trac left training early at Naarm today Trac

Russty_

It’s Narrm you silly bugger, is Trac ok mate?

demonsdelight

Actually you are incorrect There are 3 ways to spell it Russty NAARM NARRM and NAIRM The spelling gets lost in the oral interpretation Any 3 are ok This is not my interpretation but our clubs Narrm Football club Hope I haven”t offended anyone but it is good that the conversation is there My source at training was Aaron Davey YOu are still well in it mate byes will be big NDD I tried to change my monika to Narrmsdemons but it won’t let me

Russty_

Well that’s confusing, I thought Naarm was some climate change group, my mistake mate, nah you can’t change your name mid season. Not sure if I am still in it, at this stage I’ll be lucky to not run out of trades.
Had to sit Pendles out last week and maybe this week Crisp, hurts when you can’t get all your players on. You’re going strong this year Neil, inside top 7000 is good mate, can still climb right up there. More than half the season to go yet.

demonsdelight

Haven’t seen SS around for a bit but David did congratulate Narrm for the inititive maybe the lads at HQ can say a bit One of my all time favourites was Jim Krakour .spelling could be wrong.but Arden street brought back some great memories of him and PhiI on sunday

Russty_

I think ole T always had his up and down times, up times meant lots of posting with no filter but plenty of analytical Footy research and lots of stats comparisons… and the down times he’d go missing for awhile.

demonsdelight

the ole T Please Explain?

Russty_

I think you know who I mean…I’ll email you.

demonsdelight

Bringing in Gresham this week maybe not quite there but could be a good bench player late if not a keeper F6

Russty_

Gresham? interesting choice mate…may I ask why…is it just a price thing and who for? Do you think he’ll get more mid time now with Steele out?

demonsdelight

yeah more mid time but crouch will get the bulk for Cogs plus 100k for R 1 byes Gres could go either way good or average

Russty_

Oh yeah so thinking ahead, my only thinking ahead now needs to be. ….not trading

Field of Dreams

I had Gresham on my bench first time cause he scored 55 week 8, then Rioli scores 7, what a mistake, should have had E on Rioli. Gresham is a keeper for awhile!

TRIGGA HAPPY

Not sure id be bringing in the greash at top $ unless he is as keeper.

Cam

Does anyone know where I can find information on the % players are starting in their respective positions?
I saw a few spreadsheets before the first dpp changes and would love to see it again if anyone has access to it.

Thanks in advance

Robocop

Any love for Wines? Seems to be heating up 🔥

Field of Dreams

hmm he is heating up…how long is steele out for

Robocop

6 weeks atleast

Derek

i remember him, won a Brownlow. Not a bad player and as Port win games, he does good.

Kat

I have taken a punt on him for Steele. A bit of a POD. Fingers crossed he goes OK and Port start winning a few games

demonsdelight

I have 3 positions left / D6 M8 F6 I could trade Daics and SDK for 700k and buy Crisp and Cleary completing the defence but is that wise? Daics and SDK cover all 3 lines and each are capable of 70 A nett gain of 30 pts is offset by 3 potential loops on each line Think I might keep the 2 defenders and update M8 (Clark) plus F6 (Martin) to keepers. What does the community think SS where are you in time of need? NDD

Russty_

SDK”s 3 round ave of 76 is great for how he started, he’s getting better each game and has great JS, Paddy’s last 2 scores pretty good, I’m tempted to keep them both and keep swinging/looping them. Daics has gone great averaging 80, one of the best rooks this year with Martin, but if you keep him and don’t move him on, then he’s a guy you chose to keep, averaging 80 when you could upgrade him to someone averaging 110 or more. Up to you bud, depends how you’re going with trades also. I really have to watch mine now.

demonsdelight

The problem is I will need to move both defenders on unless I sacrifice Martin

TRIGGA HAPPY

Yeah Im gonna keep looping mccartin and sdk up till their bye at d6. Swans play Friday night next two weeks so that’s a bonus.
Also means Millsy can wear the VC with pride.
Looking at upgrading either Daics or Martin to Trac. Probably daics. .

Derek

I’m thinking of keeping one of either Daicos or Whitfield, one of either SDK or McCartin and one of either Brodie or Martin to cover all the DPP options with some DPP non-playing loopholes

Hayes at R2 is my biggest headache after going Hayes over Pruess. Need to get him upgraded first.

This week it is a straight Steele to Libba.

tempted to use the trade boost and go SDK to a cheapie and have the cash to get Mills, but going to keep the trades for later, still have 22 after this week

Russty_

So still no Mills?…thought you were keen on him this week

Derek

I would need to find some more cash by using a boost to get Mills. Or Daicos to Clarke to go Steele to Mills other option. Mills does look really good in my midfield……..

Russty_

Well if you don’t there’s a good chance he’ll be cheaper next week anyway.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Luvin Millsy

Derek

I’ve gone back to Mills. Looks so much better.

Shake n bake

There is a little question mark on Ridley playing

Shake n bake

Whitfield out crisp named

Russty_

Noice!..for the Crisp news I mean

Lazza

I like good news Shake, thx 👏👏
Looks like we have a H2H this week.. I I I I notice you don’t have either player 👍

demonsdelight

He has all the luck Laz I play the great one twice hmm Lets toss him mate All in good fun Shake like my Dees ,the one to beat

Nick

If you had to pick Laird or sicily who would you pick?
Currently have:
Def: Stewart, short, crisp, zorko and dawson hewitt
Mid: Neale oliver miller macrae cripps steele T Green and Rowell/ Clark

Russty_

Sicily and leave Hewett in the middle

Kaneo

Cheers for another great pod fellas!
Had a bit of a rough week last week and I’ve decided to use my last boost this week to help me for the 1st bye round
I’ve gone MacDonald, Steele and Bowey OUT but can’t decide on the INs.
Tossing up between 2 of either Petracca, Laird, Mills, Touk and Keays.

Still got 20 trades left and only 1 spot on field left to upgrade either way
