Sorry Lek but I mostly listened to the podcast this week for an expert rating of, or some decent opinions regarding the uber midfielders to help me decide of my final upgrade (mills, laird, walsh, etc), and all that was discussed on the topic was you asking your partner of her opinion, who sounds like a great girl but sadly doesn’t know much about the topic. I feel terrible for bringing it up but it nevertheless wasn’t very good. Sorry

Chris

……..aaaaannnndddddd that Ladies and Gentlemen is what you call a ‘Burn’. Might I say deservedly so after such a passive aggressive comment, lest we forget….this ain’t rocket science….

David

Love your work Lekdog, really good show the lady has talent, nice and comedic and despite unpopular belief knows her stuff. I just want to add the reason why we all have cookie cutter teams is because people need advice and don’t go with their gut, this show actually spices it up a bit and suggests the randoms like 80 year balding blokes, with a lethal left boot, well done, well done Bravo I say. I listen to the show for light fun, although two weeks ago I felt like Homer Simpson getting bashed in the head by Fredric Tatem when I traded in Sean Darcy instead of Max Gawn, where is my Moe Sizlac Lek, tell me where is he 💪💪💪🥺 although it’s been that way all year, blow after blow staring team, Baker, balta, Whitfield, Powell, captained Mitchell for 86 and picked Marshall,.Had Crippa has Captain with a 38, O and picked English at the start, brought in Lynch for a score of 125 and 38 along with a 3 week Hammy, like Homer Took the blows ranked 407 Thanks mate Hawkeye

David

No worries my man, listen most weeks normally don’t comment, happy to in future. I’ll leave you with a funny story, I have had my share of luck this year mind you. Moments before the Blues vs Dogs game I had Crippa as VC, as the mountainous man came striding to the centre I thought to my self this guy looks a little off, sick even, sweaty, ” no, no I can’t Vc him l, I must not” some 3 hrs later Crippa with 162 and big Timmy English with the VC for 99″ luck you say what, you poor bloke, the next day Neale as Skipper for 198. It must of been the rousing warm up speech that made him look like sh….. Shinny.

Matt

It wasn’t meant to be a passive aggressive comment, a trolling attempt, or anything sinister. To suggest these things are toxic and trolling yourself. I’ve also been a very strong follower and contributor for the past 8 or so years, and to be fair the comment sections arent as active as they once were. Was simply trying to say that some expert elaboration would have helped the podcast and I stand by that. Tried to say it as nicely as possible. Please don’t assume that I’m good or bad at this game, because I have an excellent record. Surely there are other people that would like to listen to others opinions on finishing their teams to collaborate with their own and in case information is brought to light (such as a players lighter draw) they might have missed It’s great if you know who you want to select but it’s also fine if people are still deciding. Would say the people who are calling me pathetic, a troll, transparent, deserving of being burnt, not a decent or regular contributor, etc are the real trolls. Have seen group mentality like this in some supercoach groups and have seen some shocking bullying. Have a nice day.

Lazza

That’s not very fair Lek, means I have to listen to both to workout which is the better… damn… 😡😁

Lazza

I liked both … damn good Lek

TRIGGA HAPPY

You know how in the past you have been in the cross hairs rust well you are in the cross hairs again. Easy big fella.

Damo

Hey Matt! We’ll answer this on the Mailbag! Assuming money isn’t an issue?

Russty_

God I can’t wait for round 15 where we can field a full team again…byes fkn suck big fat dog’s bollocks. Scores over the 3 rounds aren’t representing the overall quality of the team because of the mandatory exclusions. SC would be so much better without bye rounds.

Kev 2 3

We will be faced with a bye every week if we get the Tasmanian team, that’ll be fun 🙂

Damo

I reckon that’s part of the reason AFL don’t want to introduce a Tasmanian team. Probably won’t unless a 20th team comes in at the same time.

Lazza

Ditto that. I’ve been so frustrated by this years bye rounds to the point that I’ve thrown my hands in the air and will end up making only 1 trade throughout … and that was purely to cash in … for one non-player to another. Will take a bit of time to finalise my team .. have to wait on Gawn, and more cash gen and to reassess the final ‘targets’ who are seemingly so inconsistent.. fook the byes.

Tommyc99

I’m a bit torn on the bye round debate. I completely agree that overall team ability is compromised from having players out, but I myself love the added strategy and pride myself on preparing adequately and look to make a real rank surge over people who don’t. I think no byes would make the game easier in that there’s less strategy imo, but I’m sure I’m in the minority on this!

Lazza

I don’t disagree with you T99, my planning was going ok… till I got slammed last week with outs .. in my focus leagues I’ll win 2 of 3 bye rounds without trading.. but that is purely luck of the draw and lack of planning on my opponents part … nonetheless still frustrating when planning is undone through injury, illness/late outs and rotation of rookies …

Bucks

Community, got a bit of a POD i want to discuss with you all.
Reilly O’Brien. What do we reckon?
I’m a tad behind on rank and feel like i may need a point of difference at a decent price. The alternative is to go safe and get Doch, but would mean no room for stewart.
Now ROB probably hasn’t shown amazing levels of consistency, but his ceiling has me interested. His next 3 games of Witts, Goldy, Gawn petrifies me. but his run home of Reeves, Cameron, Hickey, TDK/Pittonet, whoever eagles ruck is, goldy again and Lycett is pretty handy.

Would love some thoughts!

Russty_

What Rucks do you have now Bucks?
My advice would be to get the two best rucks in you can.

Bucks

Hey Russty, my current rucks are gawn and english. Original plan was to swing English fwd. I think gawn to Witts is a must, but would you still bring in ROB as an R2? Call me crazy but if Preuss is back this week Id be lying if i said i wasn’t considering him at 450k with no clear R2 (assuming english is a fwd)

Hi Bucks, ROB’s not for me, too inconsistent, and yeah you could do Preuss and hope he plays the year out but it’d be a bit risky, gotta think about reliable players now with trades dwindling, you could just get Witts, leave English in ruck and get someone like Himmelberg fwd, seems to be killing it as a defender now.

tofaco

terrifying news… well I guess that’s where I’m getting the upgrade cash from this week.

Just wanna say I love the pod! I listen for fun mostly but also there’s some great insights too, you guys are a highlighter not an encyclopedia and you’re doing amazing. Awesome team and the atmosphere here is usually pretty chummy too, kinda jarring that your old lady calls you Lekdog, but it’s probably more jarring when she calls you Touky in the bedroom … amirite??? 😉
I apologise. Great work all!!!

Derek

There were people trading Gawn in last week

Kat

Big Maxxy is out for 4-8 weeks with syndesmosis injury

Derek

Hmmmm. Luke Jackson anyone?

Kat

I actually have him Might start earning his keep

Russty_

Should be a nice turn around in his scoring from here Kat, much like Darcy Cameron

Shake n bake

100%

Shake n bake

$380 will av 100 l think here on. See what happens when Gawn comes back. Should be 500-550k by then. Only thing is he has this week off. But he’ll do a Cameron

TRIGGA HAPPY

Just plugged him in, gawn to Jackson. Allows de koning – miller, mccartin – Parker with change.

Could also ride the pruess train for the same trades with little change 🤔

Or go witts (who is having a career year) and forget the Parker trade. 🤔

demonsdelight

OR keep him remember what happened with Hickey last year 3 -6 weeks traded him out then played Risky but might be worth keeping him

Stringy

Burning a trade if Gawn comes back in 4/5. Though I guess you could move him to F6

demonsdelight

Just going from bad to worse and the club is all closed shop on Gawn , I spoke to one coach who said 3 weeks but these kind of injuries linger on Time for Weideman to stand up.but they do’t rate his pressure game .i think tomlinson will get the job NDD

Russty_

Wowsers!..I thought he was just a bit sore, that changes up trade plans a bit this week then, time to reverse what I’ve already done lol

demonsdelight

Don’t know if you remember it Russty but one of the good articles David SS or whatever wrote was about syndemosis and the time frame .For you mate you have to trade him hopefully for a non 14 player Gawn could be back early or months Didn’t it ruin that great s/c pig from collingwood’s career name escapes me ?

Russty_

Hi mate I was gonna get English and Doch in this week and end up with about 25 k but now I can swap Gawn straight to English so it works out, as painful as it is to trade Maxy out for the second time this season…I’ll end up with a lot more spare money left to do my final few trades with.
I think you mean Dane Swan?…he was also getting on a bit but it did cut him short by a year or 2, his particular injury was pretty horrific though, his foot was well messed up.

demonsdelight

that’s him swanny ,a s/c beast

Shake n bake

Parish won’t play

Stringy

Great POD, enjoyed Cass’ hot-takes.
Bont as a forward option surely mint.

Shake n bake

Boak out

Stringy

Great POD, really enjoyed Cass’ contributions.
Drier than a dry ice in the desert. Jock & Higgo would be proud.

Bont as a forward option surely minted – one you missed Lek?

Derek

Bont is my man. he did have a shoulder concern before the bye is my only worry

Stringy

Had to ditch him for Dunkley as I was $1200 off bringing in Witts for Gawn.
Not happy.

Shake n bake

Teakle will play
