  • Hi Folks, I need some advise PLEASE!!!

    I have $307K left for my last FWD. I was wondering do I swap Cox for J Fraser in the ruck giving me an extra $123K and then go for Didak or Chapman or Syliva. Or do I get the best value for money for $307.

  • One again to Toasted & RGriffin,
    Hibbard is out for 3 – 5 weeks.
    Source is an AFL player manager who remains nameless!
    You didnt believe me yesterday, maybe today? Definately tomorrow!

    • Hibbard might be out………..but Hibberd is good to go!!!

      • Uh huh, And another source on FanFooty said the same thing hearing it from his missus who is best friends with Hib’s missus. I’m amazed he managed to get a doctors diagnosis without scans within hours of doing it, meaning it would still be too swollen to scan, and it would have come just after the 2pm injury list to the AFL and for that diagnosis to be passed on so quickly to those around him to go online by 6pm.

        You would think the press would love a juicy bite like this to get the ‘supercoach’/’dreammteam’ breaking news of the preseason. You would think someone ‘official’ would even hint it if everyone around him likes to blab to super/dreamteam coaches. But all is quite on the western front. And on twitter. If it was true, we will all know by the end of essendons training session today, as if he is that injuryed, he won’t train. Simple. That still leves plenty of time after partial lock-out to change your team if needed, and if not, no need to stress.

        If you are right, congrats on the link to the manager and thanks for passing it on. I’d prefer play my own game this season than listen to someone who doesn’t give their own name or their sources and uses a photo from Meet The Spartans.

    • KIng of Losers, if you stopped your taunting, and your odd attention seeking behaviour and gave information like you did in your response above then you would make valuable contributions which people who wish to, or understand the significance, take on board.

      But instead we get this schoolboy bragging wanky bullshit. Why not keep your eye on the ball and contribute information in a dignified manner so people might respect what you say rather than think you are a total loser?

  • Alright todays the day.
    So i will show my team….

    Def: Goddard, Gibbs,Deledio, Ellis, M.Johnson, Otten, Heppel – Toy, Puopolo, Duigan
    Mid: Swan, Selwood, Boak, Anthony, Kerr, Harris – Bewick , Swallow, Wallis
    Ruc: Sandilands, Jolley – Vickery, Keefe
    Fwd: Franklin Harvey N.Reiwoldt Waite Grey Pettard Knights – Krakour Prestia Hilbig


  • Hi guys,

    Please rate my team for a league win. Crticism essential.

    Defenders – Gooddard, Gibbs, Deledio, Duffield, Grimes, Ottens , Heppell
    (Stanley, Lowe , Duigan)

    Mid – Swan, J. Selwood, Boyd, Rockliff, Krakouer, Swallow
    (Harris, Bewick, Hibberd)

    Rucks – Sandilands, Cox ( J. Tippett, Derickx)

    Forwards – Riewoldt, Franlin, S.Johnson, Higgins, Knights, Matera, Richardson
    (Petrie, Darling, McKernan)

    • I wonder if Rockliff can keep the form he had last year.
      I guess however with the midfield, if Rock, Krak and Swallow cant perform, you can always DPP Krak with a FWD.
      Solid team however.
      Depends on your league if they are a bunch of muppets but you should give it a shake.

      • I think Rockcliff is a unique pick myself, to varyu it from other teams in my league. Hopefully trade him for a premium that’s gone down such as a Dal or Montagna. in later rounds. The kid is only 21, and should have a really good year this year. Other options were Foley and Cotchin.

      • He’ll easily improve IMO. I think he could push the ton. Last 13 games he has averaged 97.4. He only averaged 87 last year because he was in and out the first few weeks and was finding his feet.

        He is in my team. He is my boy (And I picked him over Pods when Voldt went down injured. 99% of the people went with Pods. Choosing Rockliff was the right call! Played more and averaged more )

    • mate thats a bloody good team for a league win… If you trade right u’d have a shot at the toyota!

      • thats so stupid its not funny. if your going for a league win you will certainly not win the car…

  • Defenders – Gooddard, Lake, Gibbs, Enright, Deledio, Ottens , Heppell
    (Stanley, Lower , Duigan)

    Mid – Swan, Boyd, Montagna, Bartel, Swallow, Conca
    (Harris, Irons, Hibberd)

    Rucks – Ryder, Jolly ( Smith, McCauley)

    Forwards – Franklin, Didak, Goodes, Riewoldt, Krak, Prestia, Richardson
    (Matera, Darling, Tapscott)

    Cash – $3500

    What I am thinking is downgrade slightly a backman to free up some cash to get the Petrie Tippett combo that some are doing.

    Basically Zac Smith has to play or else I am worrying.
    Apart from that, all cool.

    • lake wont play first round and if he does he wont be firing till atleast round 5 id say cause he sstill recovering from multiple injuries

  • feel like joining multiple leagues, pls join the gladiators league:
    (League invite code: 192660)

  • Conca or Gaff?

    and what do people think about Travis Boak as a 4th midfielder?

    • None

      go for

      Simon Buckley d/m , or Bradley Helbig

      • i dont think buckley is a great choice. Would prob be dropped when maxwell comes back in

    • Brak

      ignore Zan, in fact ignore all last minute advice, Gaff and Conca will of course get games this year even if its not Rd 1. (Both will play Rd 1!, but will they be a sub?)

    • i got boaky as 4th!

  • well i think this team is pretty good

    comments would be greatly appreicated :)

    Backsss : Goddard, Gibbs, Deledio, Enright, Grimes, Heppell, Duigan ( Toy, Poupolo,Batchelor)

    Centres : Swan, Judd, Montagna, Boak, Foley, Harris ( Hibberd, I.Smith, Bewick)

    Ruckss : Sandilans, Cox ( Z.Smith, Derickx)

    Forwrds : Riewoldnt, Didak, Pavlich, Goodes, Knights, Krakouer, Richardson ( Matera, Michie, Darling)

    Swan capt, but gonna put judd as VC for the loop hole, thankyou :)

  • Coming off two top 100 finishes in a row, here is my unique starting squad.

    Hoping a few mid pricers can adapt to new roles and allow me to upgrade to all guns by round 10-12

    Back: Goddard, Gibbs, Bruce, Broughton, Grimes, Adcock, Lower (Otten, Stanley, Duigan)
    Mid: Swan, Selwood, Palmer, Ward, Karakouer, Houli (Heppel, Harris,Conca)
    Ruck: Cox, Sandilands (Hale, J Tippett)
    Fwd: Johnson, Riewoldt, Fyfe, Davis, Knights, Yarran, Petrie (Richardson, Matera, Darling)

    I am reliant on the following 9 to start the season well with the view to only keep three of them.
    Adcock, Krak, Ward, Houli, Palmer, Davis, Yarran, Knights, Fyfe

    Which will hopefully allow me to trade in Ablett, Franklin, Hayes, Boyd, Brown, Pavlich, Deledio asap.

    The aim is to have 18 guns by round 10. 12 keepers in the initial squad is low compared to convention.

    Thoughts appreciated

    • i see your a fan of taking risks. Hope it works out for ya. ( i also hope we meet in the early rounds of the ELIMINATOR! )

  • 415679 join this leauge only 4 spots left

  • sylvia or stevie j?

  • thoughts of EVERITT?????????????????????

  • i think scott thompson (crows) will be good??? has been superb in past years!!!

  • everitt prob ave 80 to 85 this year could be worth a go

    What about Hibberd VS Atley and Prestia vs Tapscott?

  • Team: Gabor

    DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Deledio, Grimes, Adcock, Heppel, Stanley (Lower, Duigan, McKernan)

    MID: Swan, Boyd, Montagna, A.Swallow, Boak, D.Swallow (Harris, Bewick, Hibberd)

    RUCK: Cox, Petrie (Vickery, McCauley)

    FORW: Franklin, S.Johnson, Riewoldt, Higgins, Knights, Krakeor, Prestia (Richardson, Matera, Darling)

    Cash: $5300

    took a risk and got rid of
    *Otten for McKernan
    *Z. Smith for McCauley
    *Bailey for Vickery
    Needed to cover for Petrie and wasnt sure on Otten, worst case scenario Vickery will be downgraded to Zac Smith if he plays really poorly before price changes happen..quite happy with how it ended up

    • couldnt justify spending an extra 12 to 17k on someone like Derickx, Keeffe or Moran for a 4th ruckman who i doubt will get 5 games between them this year

  • Going for a league win…

    BACKS: Goddard, Gibbs, Deledio, Broughton, Grimes, Otten, Heppell. (Toy, Lower, Duigan)

    MIDFIELDERS: Swan (C), Boyd (VC), Montagna, Boak, Bewick, Curnow. (Swallow, Harris, Atley)

    RUCKS: Sandilands, Trengove (trade in petrie in rd 5). (Z. Smith, Keeffe)

    FORWARDS: Franklin, Johnson, Goodes, Riewoldt, Morton, Krakouer, Darling. (Prestia, Matera, Richardson)
