  • I have the $$ to upgrade Barlow to Swan, is this a gumby trade? Hoping Swan goes off so I can then use the loophole. My other trade Viney to Evans

    • What the hell is a Gumby trade? lol

      If you have nothing else to fix up in your team, then go for it… Have you got the non playing player to finish the loop hole off?

  • Everyone seems to be doing the viney to evans trade?
    will viney play this weekend? wouldnt it be a good idea to instead trade crouch out for evans? or mayes..

    • As soon as Crouch comes back, he will jump 60K, Viney will take 3 weeks of games just to get back to that sort of cash flow if he plays out of his skin

  • why are some names highlighted green?

  • hey Dean, whats your opinion on this one

    I was going to do
    viney to evans
    neade to mayes

    im considering
    viney to mayes and
    neade to cloke?

    • What other rookies have you go in the MID & FWD lines?

      Neade has still got more cash to make so I would wait until selection before dropping him. I would lean towards Viney > Mayes, and the second trade depends on rookies and cash…

      • neade is in my forward line alongside macaffer, dwyer and rowe. gathered neade is the most eligible candidate..

        • Who are your ruck and Mid rookies?

          You must have a very thin FWD line if you have all 4 in there.

  • Cheers guys. I wanna trade the bloke though. Maybe next week.

    • Trade out Patton.. Like I said, put Kitchell on the field and have your M8 as emergency. Kitchell will not get named and then you can still get rid of Patton as you want while keeping the loophole in play.

      • Righto. Should i play McCaffer on the field then? Or T.Lee?

        • Of those 2, I’d go Caff… Who would your other FWD bench player be?

          • But may trade to Kerridge tomorrow if he is named. I also have neade in Mids so can put him there and get Evans.

          • OK. Patton out, put Mayes into FWD line with Caffer and Lee on Bench. Then that opens the spot for Evans in the MIDs and still allows you to use Kitchell for Loophole. If the Loophole is not needed with Swanny kicking arse, you can then also trade out Kitchell as he won’t be back anytime soon

          • Cheers mate. I hope Kerridge gets named then. I’ll do the trades tomorrow. Ill put the Emergance on MacCaffer in case he goes big then keep patton on.

          • Just make sure the V is on Swan if you are using Loophole

  • stanton been named at HB…that something to worry about? i traded him in for JPK this week.

    • He’ll be in the centre. There are only so many spots people can be named and given Swatson, Goddard, Zaharakis etc. he has to be named somewhere… Be greatful it’s not the Bench or Emergency :)

  • 1st trade for me this week is probably viney > evans or mayes

    2nd trade i’m thinking of trading out maloney? BE 69 which against melbourne he’ll crack. but he’s only there to make $$$ and with all these other cash cows about to start mooing it could be time to think ahead and start clearing out. whether i up or downgrade isn’t really the issue at the moment.

    only other options for trading out would be crouch, whitfield, macaffer or dwyer. all of who seem to have more $$$ left in them.

    in short, should i trade out maloney or one of these other chumps? :)


    • Save Moloney he will score big against Melb. Maybe put the C on him?

      • Don’t captain Moloney, if you’re gonna captain anyone from Brisbane, choose Rockliff. Furthermore, you don’t need to trade out Moloney, I too am holding onto him. Maybe look at taking out a forward rookie for Mayes?

        • cheers for the responses :)

          the C is firmly on swan for me. might hold onto moloney. would you agree macaffer seems the next best option? i figure dwyer is ok for another 1-2 weeks. seems a bit rash to trade crouch out already and this trading out and back in biz seems fraught with danger.

          decisions, decisions. what is a coach to do?

          good luck this week everyone!

  • Dusty or Bartel to Cloke? Cheers

  • With 250,000 in the kitty and already have panned to use 3 of my next four trades as downgrades for cash, do I downgrade Viney and Neade this week to Evans and Mayes giving me a mass amount of cash or do downgrade 1 player and then I get anybody I want mainly Stevie J, Gablett, K.Cornes bein the main people (have Swan, Cotch, Watson, Pendles, Fyfe/ Chappy, Rocky, Cox, dusty, kennedy

    • if you’re happy with your scoring for now i would be downgrading with both trades. if you need some firepower this week then do 1 of each. personally i’m all about the $$$ this year.

  • bartel. dusty BE 75 which is achievable so won’t bleed too much this week. jimmy has a BE 126.

  • How many people are doing the Swan loophole? If so, with what player? (Besides Crouch).

  • If Dwyer is not named the sub, who should take the field out of him and Mayes?

    • Dwyer for safer option as will avoid the green. Mayes for points and hope he doesn’t grab the vest

  • Dwyer or McCaffer on the ground ??

  • $230 in the kitty is it worth trading out Bartel or Dusty for a more consistent premo or should I resist temptation and have faith !!

  • Option 1: viney > Mayes
    JPK > Evans

    Option 2: viney > Mayes
    JPK > Stanton

    People thing Stanton will rip up today?

  • Adam, ur better going JPK > watson, watson will be more consistent thats my opinion.

    • Yee thanks for the opinion. Watson be ripe for picking next wk so I have to have a think if I should just bring the 2 rookies in this week or go a gun and rook. Hmmmmmm.

  • crouch to evans and viney to stockes????or get in Maloney instead of stokes

    • I think Stokes will have a higher ceiling than Moloney. Moloney is a good pick for this week but for the long term Stokes. My only concern is the what Kelly’s influence to Stokes’ role will have…

  • Is everyone doing the swan loop de loop with Crouchy boy?

  • Last minute trade advice wanted about these two options:

    Option 1: Kreuzer > Leuenberger and Karnezis > Cloke
    Leuenberger has the potential to become a premium ruck. I’ll be trading in O’hAilpin next week allowing Cox DPP movement. That way playing Daw and Leuenberger in my Rucks with Cox up forward.

    Option 2: Viney > Evans and Karnezis > Cloke
    Basically chasing the cash. I liked Evans 2 years ago, and had him in my team all preseason. Evans will be on my bench. Unfortunately I can’t afford Kommer > Evans. Leaving me to upgrade Kreuzer next week and once again bringing in O’hAilpin for Cox DPP.

    Any other tips are welcome. Current team:
    DEF: Heppell, Gibbs, Goddard, Hibberd, Goodes, Pittard, (Terlich, Stevenson)
    MID: Swan, Ablett, Watson, Kennedy, Wines, Moloney, O’Meara, Whitfield, (Viney, Kommer)
    RUC: Cox, Daw, (Kreuzer, Blicavs)
    FWD: Westhoff, Kennedy, Monfries, Zorko, Dwyer, Neade, (Karnezis, Macaffer)

    • With the weekend’s teams not being announced it’s hard to tell if Daw’s going to play… Also whether or not Viney is getting picked too.

      The logical move would be to do the Leuenberger trade right? Allowing for Cox DPP next week fixes my forwardline issues that have had since round 2. It’s just that there’s a big difference in cash coming in between the two trades.

    • The Kreuzer trade is the best one. Berger should kill it this week and having Cloke on your field over Karnezis or Dwyer would be handy. If setanta fails to fire against the suns, maybe look at bringing in Rowe, because Carlton play Melbourne next week.

  • Pick 1 out of 3
    Matt Jones
    Micheal Evans
    Jaeger O’Meara

  • Which of Evans or Mayes do you guys think has the best JS, as I need to trade Kommer to one of them obviously before weekend teamsheets are named.

    Im actually thinking Evans, surely his game saving last quarter earns him a full game this week. Mayes has been good, but Voss does weird stuff, Brissie lions having been going that well, and I expect a shuffle up. I also think Melbourne are in the habit of playing their rookies.

    I will trade viney to the other one.

    • Keep in min though, rich is out for 8 weeks so that should give Mayes a bit of job security. Both are perfectly good options though.

      I had the luxury to get both thankfully

  • Finally a week of relatively straight forward trades… My side is locked and ready to lose :). SC was a bit harder but should win in all my leagues there

  • What people thoughts on these trades

    1. Viney – Mayes ————- jpk – Ablett or Stants

    2. Viney – sub Dwyer to mids bring in Mayes ———— couch – sub Mayes to mids bring in knights.

    Knights is interesting. Expected to rise 100k in next 3 weeks ??

    Team will look like this. Any other thoughts would be great


  • Hey guys does anyone think Gumbleton is a good long term pickup? Was his score last week a one off?
    Or am I better off picking up a rookie like Mayes and cash cowing.

    Also, can someone please explain the loophole concept.

    Thankyou for info

  • ok thanks for tip

  • Mayes or Kerridge???????????????????????????

  • Anyone got JPK’s BE handy?

  • Thinking about getting Patton in seeing as though he has a horrible knee injury

  • Hey Dean, could I get ur advice,

    Should I put the VC on Pendlebury or O’keefe?

    And if I put the C on Crouch who is on the field and Ablett on the bench that should work right?
