Red Dead (Rookie) Redemption

Red Dead (Rookie) Redemption

THEY’RE BACK! Just when you thought they were gone, down and out, our rookies are BACK, BABY! Well, some of them were never here, in the case of Michael Gibbons, and some of them never left, in the case of Sam Walsh, but for all intents and purpses – as Jesus did on Easter all […]

Heroes, Villains & The Damned | Round 5

Heroes, Villains & The Damned | Round 5

The Good A sold out Gabba watched helplessly as the Pies demolished the Lions. Adam Treloar (150) had the ball on the string, while Brody Mihocek (117) bagged four goals in the 62-point win. Only Hugh McCluggage (105) managed triple figures for the Lions, who’s turning out to be a solid POD pick. Good Friday […]

The Standing Room | Round Five

The Standing Room | Round Five

It’s been a whirlwind of a round so far, with premiums rewarding those who stuck with them. Murmers of people looking to trade Treloar and Crisp during the week would have (hopefully) been quashed by their good performances on Thursday, and Zach Merrett continued his brilliant run of form. Lachie Neale proved he is human […]

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 5

As regular readers of the Panic Room will know I’m not a huge fan of Thursday night footy. I mean footy at any time is grouse, but it throws the writing of this article out. I can’t provide you, the viewing public, with the appropriate levels of PANIC until the teams drop after the article […]

Supercoach Cheat Sheet | Round 4

Hello JR community, It’s another edition of the most sought after resource in SC circles. The JR Community Cheat Sheet! To be honest, it’s still a bit of a “wait and see” period for SC. If you can hold off on making trades just yet, you’re setting yourself up for success in later weeks. I’ve […]

Who’s Your Captain? – Round 5

Who’s Your Captain? – Round 5

With the Eagles playing on Friday night, it creates a difficult conundrum for some coaches when it comes to nailing down a viable VC option, and being able to execute the loophole. Luckily, or unluckily for him, Will Setterfield is now suspended for two weeks and can be used instead. Without further ado, your options […]

PODCAST | Game of Holding

PODCAST | Game of Holding

I tried. I tried really hard to make a Game of Thrones inspired podcast episode name, but like everything I do in life, I failed. It’s not great. So, instead, pretend Game of Bones or something is relevant to this week’s podcast. We talk about HOLDING TRADES! Because that’s a thing you should do! And […]

The Standing Room | Round Four

After last week’s high scoring, this week looks to bring everyone plummeting down to earth … unless you captained Grundy. Which of your premos have fired and which have flopped? What score are you looking at heading to? And how ’bout ANTHONY McDONALD-TIPUNGWUTI’S SEVEN GOALS???? That’s what I’m talking about! Jump into the comments and […]

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 4

SuperCoach Panic Room: Round 4

Is it just me or does this season already feel like week 15 and we’ve just been chewed up and spat out by the byes? Injuries, suspensions, underperforming premiums, and several rookies already looking like they’ve hit the wall are testing our resolve to remain calm. There’s no such thing as a quick fix in […]

Supercoach Cheat Sheet | Round 4

Supercoach Cheat Sheet | Round 4

Afternoon Community, I’m guessing you’re in one of two camps this week? A) My SC team is perfect, I traded Dusty to Neale last week, and all my rookies are making cash, or B) I traded Heeney to Rockliff/Fyfe and Balta is my best rookie. Whichever way you sit right now, there’s still a chance […]

Who’s Your Captain? – Round 4

I’m a man of few words so let’s just get on with it. Round 4 is upon us. Top VICE CAPTAIN Options – Jake Lloyd Thursday Night vs Melbourne – AVG vs Team: 73.4 Lloyd’s average against Melbourne over his entire career isn’t great, but he hasn’t really been a top end premium for a […]
