  • Gaffe and J Kelly or Sloane and Dusty pls

    • Hmmm Gaff and Kelly I think. Gaff has Blues at home so should go 100+, Kelly should go well v Dogs tonight too. Dusty has a tough game v Cats and who knows what you’ll get with Sloane

  • DEF: Docherty,Laird,Newman,Simpson,Newnes,Adams(Glass,Larkey)
    MID: Titch,Danger,Kelly,Rocky,Gaff,Shuey,Zerrett,Jelwood(Mountford,Brown)
    RUC: Grundy,Martin(Buzza,Cameron)
    FWD: Sidebottom,Yeo,Menegola,Heeney,Dahlhaus,Sheed(Maynard,Zurhaar)
    Have $152k salary

    Current trade ideas are looking like:
    1. Grundy to Kreuzer & Jelwood to Zorko – Leaves $4k
    2. Grundy to Gawn & Jelwood to Zorko – Leaves $57k
    3. Grundy to Gawn & Jelwood to Martin – Leaves $51k
    4. Grundy to Kreuzer & Jelwood to Beams/Treloar/Gibbs

    Essentially Kreuzer or Gawn & Zorko or Dusty ?

    • Despite how awesome Kreuzer has been this year, I’d still go Gawn. He’s back in ripper form and had four scores of 140+ last year so has that huge ceiling

      Dusty has a tough match up v Cats at home, Zorko should kill the Suns at home and go 130+. I’d go Zorko mate

  • Thoughts on Coniglio, guys?

  • Lads it’s make or break this week, terrible past fortnight. Struggling with the trades and what is going to give me the best opportunity at some wins. Leaning towards the first option as I believe it gives me the max scoring potential.. Thoughts appreciated. Here are my options:

    Zerrett- Treloar
    Witherden- Sloane
    Play Cox at D6

    Selwood- Sloane
    Witherden- Tuohy/Rich
    Bench Zerrett. Play Miles, Partington or Cox

    Zerrett- Sloane
    Witherden- Hibberd
    Selwood traded NW. Play Miles, Partington or Cox

    Zerrett- Neale
    Witherden- Lloyd
    Selwood traded NW. Play Miles, Partington or Cox

    • If you’re thinking predominantly this week then #1.

      Please help below!

    • Think you have to trade Selwood this week. Who knows what problems may arise next week?

      • +1
        You must trade out Jelwood who you know won’t play again.
        You know Merrett will be back next week so bench him.
        Hammies are difficult to predict so you should probably trade out Witherden.

  • Who scores more Jobe Watson or David swallow

  • through to the prelim which is the best option Kreuzer Gawn Jacobs vs Eagles + Swans

  • Who should I bring in out of Kelly or the crouch brothers?? Libba could tag Kelly and Friday night games are always harder to score in. Crouch brothers playing against Essendon with no tagger in their team and should have no trouble hitting 100

  • Matt Crouch just because he will never get any attention.

  • Which gun mid should I get out of Danger, Sloane, Gibbs, Neale or Kelly?

    • Danger – he is fresh off a week off, has the MID to himself and is consistent. Otherwise go Sloane but am worried about his Rd23 match-up (hello Hutchings)

  • Have no matchup this week and don’t care about rank so trying to make some money for upgrades next week, any ideas would be appreciated

    111k remaining
    DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Newnes, Blakely, Witherden (Guthrie, Finlayson)
    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Rocky, Beams, Gaff, Treloar, Kelly, Zorko (Mountford, Wigg)
    RUCK: Gawn, Jacobs (Filipovic, King)
    FWD: Macrae, Dahl, Heeney, Boak, Greenwood, Allison (Zurhaar, Deluca)

  • What move is the better (I have the week off):-

    1) Darcy > Kreuzer
    2) J.Lloyd > Hibberd (thinking this only to get one last price rise out of Darcy
    before getting Kruz next week – will play on field – 59 B/E)

    DEF: Docherty, Adams, Laird, Newnes, Ryan (Mitch Hibberd, Guthrie)
    MID: Danger, Mitchell, Martin, Kelly, Murphy, Treloar, Beams, Merrett (Greenwood, Glass)
    RUC: Martin, Darcy (Soldo, Cameron)
    FWD: Macrae, Menagola, Yeo, Sheed, Heeney, Dahlhaus (Young, Maynard)

  • Titch v Roos
    Zorko v Suns
    Think it’s gonna be a flip a coin choice !

  • Trade in Darcy and Docherty or Hibberd and Kreuzer?

  • brad or matt crouch?

    • Go Brad – just got a feeling on this one and also he featured in “Ripe For the Picking”

      Pease help me below!

      • There ain’t nothing below mate. Kreuz has the easier matchup this week but Gawn is starting to hit his straps. Who knows who scores most going forward? Think Kreuz.

  • Quick guys, Kruezer or Gawn to score more THIS WEEK? In semis and need a short-term option.

    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!

    • Got the same problem, need help please!

    • Kruezer by 10 or so points

    • Kruezer.

      No definitive answer before Sunday, alas. But if it is just this weekend that is determining the choice, Kruezer against the no-ruck Eagles would be best advice, I reckon. Longer will provide resistance to Gawn even though Gawn should score well. No resistance to Kruezer from whoever he comes up against in the rucks. I don’t play this week – my next is the prelim and I have gone the other way with Gawn + cash, but I have had Kruezer in all week and if my life depended on it this week, I would go him.
      All the best.

  • Jelwood to Menegola, Dunstan, Gray or Sloane. Who do I pick??

  • Another important dilemma,

    Zorko, Dusty or Sloane?

    Whoever I bring in will be my Captain (probs).

    Also, Kruezer or Gawn to do better this week?

    • Kreuzer should slaughter West Coast with their rucks.
      Zorko will be the best this week but I’d say Dusty for the next 3 weeks so up to you. Zorko would be a good captain

      • Thanks mate, much appreciated.

        • I’m guessing you don’t have the week off if your worried about captain.

          Therefore, maybe Zorko is more suitable. Kreuzer every day. I started the season with him and he went down injured quick but it only ended up being a week. Worst call of the season bringin in Martin for him then (except maybe bringin Rocky in to lose 200K+)

  • If you need to ask advice you’re half way down the
    gurgler already.

  • No games this week, so Jelwood for Zorko, and Witherden for Partytime. And cashed up for next weeks prelims.
    Goodluck everyone! Glad I can sit back and watch the mayhem.

  • Is Sicily a strong chance to ton up again??

    • If Hawthorn are winning there will be plenty of chipping it around the back, so he should get plenty of + 6’s

  • Luke Ryan worth trading in over Hibberd?

  • Would you go BCrouch over a Kelly/Zorko?
    Want a unique for my league semi final

  • Is everyone that has Merrett and in a semi final this week trading him?

  • Who to get in out of Zorko, Kelly or one of the crouch brothers?

  • Best to worst options for the next 3 weeks? Who will score the most? Zorko, Neale, M.Crouch, Sloane, B.Crouch?

  • Okay, heres a question of “Who do I play on the field?”

    In one corner is HEATH SHAW. One of the most hated players, this coach has suffered the rollercoaster of Heater since Round one. 3round ave: 70.3, overall ave: 82.3.

    The challenger, L. Ryan, the freo wonderkid, usually sitting on the bench earning money and constant “oh shit I wish I played him last week” feeling. 3 round average: 112, overall ave: 81.8.

    My backline is otherwise Laird, Lloyd, Tuohy, Adams and Newnes and is watertight and not being messed with trade wise because of other parts.

    So who do I field, and who do I emergency? Take the rollercoaster of Heater, or worry a young blood is about to hit the wall?

    • Oh dear, seems he may have just hit that wall – hope you kept him on the pine …

  • Anyone got the stats on Sam Gray. Seems to be an end of year specialist.

  • Deluca or glass to field

  • Trades
    Jelwood + Witherden > Ryan + Menegola.

    are there better options out there? Probably. At this stage of the season, falling into the hole that I am, should I really care?

    • These trades sound good – unless you’re not playing this round, in which case you should be downgrading non-playing bench rooks to make $$

  • 1. Danger and Darcy
    2. Gawn and Crouch
    3. Kreuzer and Beams/Ebert?

  • Kelly, Zorko or Dusty

  • Teia Miles or Sam Simpson?

  • cant go kreuzer and jelwood to top premo!! which one?

    Go Grundy to Gawn and Jelwood to Crouch, witherden donut


    Grundy to Kreuzer and Witherden to Lloyd, Jelwood donut

  • Cheeky fielding Dawson Simpson after naming him an emergency. Thought he’d be good Grundy cover knowing Mummy and Grundy would be out but then they put an orange dot next to him so I had to make the trade.

  • To everyone who picked Kruezer , be wary it’s going to be some wild weather on the weekend in the west. Sorry about the late notice. Good luck

  • Nothing like a 150 to draw everyone in, before backing it up with a sub 40.

  • Looks like a horror weekend for some.
    Caddy gone first term /Neale way down/Luke Parker not getting amoungst
    the pig out.

  • Looks like Ryan’s bubble has burst.

  • Finally Rocky! Took you long enough to break triple figures. Currently on 97 at 3/4 TIME

  • Footy commentators have been instructed by management not to use the ‘m’ word.
    so they use the weasel words ‘numbers and people’.
    in an AFL game there are 44 participants..none of which are sheilas broads girls
    sorts or women.
    The players who take the field are..look away now children…the players who take the field are [MEN].
    Get rid of this PC diarrhea now.
