WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH JOEL SELWOOD?

71 Comments

  • well done boys……i have selwood,mundy and montagna in my mids…..and i am fast running out of trades…grr

    • No Pendles and Swan?

      • I have Pen, Swan, Mun, Sel and Tag’s. Bewick will probably be my captain ;)
        But Tag’s is listed as a Test and is a good chance to play R13 according to the AFL website In The Mix article.

  • im going selwood straight to ablett but it screws up all my trading plans as i only have 7 trades left anyways

    • I say forget Ablett. He’ll miss two more weeks this season when Bluey rests him alone. Add another couple weeks for niggling injuries…..

      If you’ve got the money go straight to Murphy. Has the finals bye, but hopefully with DPP you can cover him. He’ll play the rest of the season and continue to smash it barring injury.

      Personally, I think to get ahead in this thing it’s time to take risks!

      I’m going Selwood > Shiels and upgrading Swallow > Tom Scully. Mids will look like this:

      Pendlebury, Boyd, Bartel, Redden, Shiels, Scully.

      After watching the Magpies belt the Dees without Thomas AND Swan, I see Swanny being rested for a couple more weeks at some point. Collingwood are that good that they can afford to do it.

      Go with something original. It’s time to mix it up around here or we’re all just gonna stay with the pack.

      • +1
        Boyd, Shiels, A Swallow, Bart, Rockliffe…and held on to Curnow

      • Why would Bluey “rest” Ablett??? For the finals……..

        • Because they’re going to finish dead last and it will be better to blood some younger guys in the final rounds and let GAJ get on top of any niggling injuries for next season….. when they make their run for the top 8! And he will have some injuries come round 20. Mark my words. That guy is carrying a heavy load.

  • Advice for people with 3 Trades?, If there is any….

    • Don’t have mids struck down…one team’s loss is another team’s gain…plenty of options though

    • If you can limp to the finals in your league without trading any more do it…

  • One of the few without Jelwood….loving the fact he is out for 4 weeks

    • im not. i dont have him but i would it was 2 so people hold onto him and i kill them this round and next…

    • I’m with you there mate. Also Mundy, Montagna, and a few others. Apart from Swan I’ve got a full midfield, thats gotta help in the next few rounds.

    • loving it too, i traded out Monty for Mitchell so my mid look

      Swan, Boyd, Mitchell, O’Keefe, Judd, Watson [Hibberd, Prestia, Mzungu]

      but have 4 more Def/Mids and 5 Fwd/Mids so can pretty much cover everything, i’ve got a Fwd/Def link and Fwd/Ruck link too….

      lots of ppl in my league having big Collingwoood related problems and im the Magpies supporter HAHAHAHAHA

      Tits Out!!!

  • Going with Jelwood to Mitchell….anyone doing this trade?

  • any idea how long adcock will be out for after his finger surgery???

  • A few days off work fellas, cut sick!

  • But who’s going to teach the young kids at school? Tit-ed?

  • Why can’t you guys take the ferry? Pretending to ignore the idea to get out of work?

  • Selwood>Sylvia to stay in midfield for a few weeks then swap him to forwards when i can afford to upgrade conca to another mid premium

    • have u seen Sylvias b/e? wait a week.

      • Why wait for a 15K drop when you need him cause jelwood not playing???
        Don’t wait too long to trade Conca, back to back 29’s have him about to lose heaps of cash!!!!

  • Any chance that Bartel will lift with Jelwood out?

    I’d love to bank the change and get a similar output but all I’ve heard about Jimmy this year has been negative.

    Any thoughts?

    • i’ve had him all season , so i’m hoping it ups his scoring with the Ear Basher missing ;)

      • +1……..surely it can only help him. Can’t leave Jimmy idle in forward line too much now.

      • Renoufs lucky it wasn’t flesh starved big bad mike tyson and still has his ear attached to his head. Jelwood should consider himself lucky to only get 4 weeks as mad dog gablett senior did something similar back in the day and had forensic charges laid against him.

  • Just a complete side note.

    We are now halfway through the competition, and there are quite a few teams over the 25,000 points mark. Aside from the obivious congratulations, this means that the winning team is probably going to need somewhere near the 52,000 point mark to take home the car this year. That’s huge.

    If it were just kicks, it would be more than 17,000 of them!!! Likely it will only be 5,000 or so when spread across all categories, but that is still a lot of kicks to register.

    Kudos to Champion Data for doing all of the hard work!

    • what percentage of teams in the top 5000 do you reckon are amateurs who have traded their tits off and will fall away tho?

  • Goodbye Selwood, you will be missed.

  • Selwood to Mitchell DONE

    • Funny that, I made that same trade back at the start when Selwood got injured. Mitchells served me well throughout, and now that selwoods suspended, its ended up working alright for me.

  • I’m doing the Jelwood ‘hokey pokey’ this week (traded him in last week, now out this week)…. so annoying. Elected to go Hodge over Mitchell 2 rounds ago (D’oh!), so I’m looking to bring in Murphy this week to (re)complete my mids, and then do a bargain upgrade in my backs – Lower>>Enright (my main league opposition already has Suckling), unless Adcock is out long term as well.

    Looks like I’m going be down to 5 trades to cover LTI’s and finals to get my team set…. balls!!

    • Ouch, that sucks. Finally glad i went Bartel…….been hurting up until now.

  • Man it sucks to have to trade Selwood out when I only got him 2 weeks ago. Plus it’s a suspension not an injury, damn! Silver lining is that Scully is back from injury, has already punched out two hungys against decent opposition, and at 320k, cha ching! Will use the 150k to upgrade a backman. 8 trades left but a finished squad!

  • You have got to be kidding me…
    Traded out pratt for adcock when pratt broke his finger 3 weeks ago.
    Since then Adcock has got the 3 worst scores of his season, and then decides to also break his finger or rather, re-break his finger.
    I am already down to 5 trades, team however was pretty set before adcock decided to fudge me over.
    I’m usually not a fan of using this but I am very due for a FMDT!

    • They are living up to your namesake, JAMINATING them where they shouldn’t be!

  • So what do the coaches out there do when they have both Gurrea and Selwood does anyone know how long Gurrea is out for???

    • I haven’t heard anything….neither has he.

      • Now that’s funny.

        I thought i read he was cleared to fly by the doctors but availability for selection not yet confirmed

  • I’m thinking Selwood – Boyd and Mundy – S. Thompson/Sylvia Thoughts?

    Im still really dirty on having to do 2 sideways trades in 1 week. Thought i was getting to downgrade Stanley and go Bewick – S. Thompson…would have been more fun :(

  • Hm Selwood couldn’t wait just one more week to start punching ears…

    so i could go Selwood > Pendles, But still have someone on the bench this round.

    I’d love to get Mitchell but i already have Hodge and the Bye will hurt

    Dont really want Murphy with the finals Bye (If i make it)

    Ablett seems the only fitting option.

    Down field a little,
    either McKernan, Lynch, Richardson > Sylvia either this week or next (BE)

  • Weeeeell frigg me sideways.

    Building up to an awesome weekend.

    1, Perth flights grounded. Flight home tomorrow cancelled = stuck on a minesitein the Pilbara, WA. for possibly the weekend

    2, Most games potentially going to be cancelled = Nothing on TV while stuck on site.

    3, Selwood 4 weeks.

    FMFL

    • Surely not. They wouldnt cancel games unless they really had to. Last thing I heard was that some scrub team richmond had to travel to there game on a bus which would take ages.

  • ZAC SMITH OUT!!!

    The General Strikes Again

    • OMG that totally sux dogz ballz!

      what’s the chance that Sandilands will get over his sore toe and take the field – FMDT!

      • Sandilands is a week or two away from returning, at worse afer the bye :(

    • This is bitter-sweet for me

      I have him and my Opponent has him however…
      I have Varda and my Opponent has Nada

  • Hi guys,
    Sorry to spam the article but, I’m the underdog in a competition to win $5k (real cash, although if it was for my dt salary it would help the team, with the likes of mundy and adcock suffering injuries AND now smith to miss a week) .
    Only got into the top 10 as a wild card entry and people already have over 100 likes.
    Help me win $5k by liking my toilet idea for a wifi hotspot.
    It’s real easy. Follow the link, like the “blender page” AND like my Toilet WiFi Hotspot invention.

    Thank you in advance!!

  • Ablett or mitchell. Mitchell plays GC twice as mentioned but like they said If hawks make top 8 (which is looking likely with the mediocre teams not contesting) then mitchell will likely be rested round 24. They could even rest players like franklin/shiels round 24 seen as they will have made top 4 and game vs gold coast will pretty much be irrelevant. Thoughts?

    • They will not mess with form the last round before finals.

      They are not good enough to flirt with form like that.

      They will play a full squad and absolutly rape the GCS then head into finals with a shit load of confidence.

      Regards

      The Unemployed

      • +1, no issues re round 24. Sides not playing so well after byes so side won’t rest too many in final round either IMO!!

    • Hawks resting key players against GCS is an issue that has recieved was too much attention.
      It is purely speculation and circular referencing.

      Don’t let the Mitchell rumor have any influence on your decission.

  • Got back to Tassie from Melbourne yesterday on Virgin Australia.

    After expecting our flight to be cancelled because of the ash cloud it was delayed 3 hours because of the fog in Launceston not the ash cloud.

    Also unlucky to all those on QANTAS or Jetstar flights obviously they aren’t risking it like Virgin.

    Also for the person who asked about coming back on the spirit to Devonport.
    The Spirit of Tasmania has been fully booked for ages because of the cancellations.

  • MURPHY vs GAZZA????

  • Right im fed up with not breaking 2000 for the last 2 weeks thanks to some lackluster performances from the premiums in the Midfield. (Swan, Montag, Hodge, Nicky Dal, Swallow. Fuck the lot of you). This week Selwood out for Bartel (gotta risk it to get the biscuit) and then Swallow to Boyd with some leftover CAB.
    Hopefully a bolstered midfield will bring back some happiness to my DT. Lost my eliminator thanks to that lot (15points), Lost my first league match and my ranking has dropped out from 1667 to 5000ish.

  • I am so screwed i have adcock, smith, pendlebury, swan, mundy, selwood out this week. have 380k cash and petrie as dpp. Ill have to trade mundy at least and probably selwood too. What are the best options? I’m looking at Ablett and Redden/ Griffen/ Boyd at this stage.

  • Thinking going Selwood to either Murphy, Watson, Judd or Pendels who is the best option? already have Boyd, Albett, Swan, Hodge in my mids.if i go pendles will have to cope with a zero this wk got no emergenices playing.

    • Do you think selwood is a must trade? If so im gonna wait a week and go either Pendles or Thomas. Coll will dominate for the rest of the season. Get on em!

      • Yes its a shame hes one of my fav players and a DT star but 4 weeks is too long and be no point him sitting on the bench doing nothing. got 12 trades left so might as well.

        • Im liking Scully. Valued at just under 330k, will prob finish will an ave of just under 100, is an absolute gun. (anyone who scores 40+ DT points in a qtr is a must have), and you could use the 100k saving to finish either your backs, forwrds, or ruck (like me who has Ryder). Or hold for a week like the aforementioned comment by me and snag a coll mid.

          For you, who wants to avoid a homers’ best friend, id go Scully. Take the risk! I did with Redden and it has payed off so far (except when I made him capt. against GC, ouch!). He is a little tackling machine!

  • The AFL’s bias towards Collingwood is getting beyond a joke! Whilst all these teams have to amend travel arrangements due to this big, shitty cloud of ash, guess who has the bye!
