  • Taranto vs Coffield to trade out ? very heavy in rnd 13
    Walters looms as a possible option or straight to yeo… would still have more than 18 playing this round, deletes my chest however

  • I can afford to get McLean this week should I get him this week and put him on the bench as I might not be able to get him next week due to injuries etc.
    1st world problem.
    Other option this week is Westhoff

    • You’d definitely want McLean over Westhoff, I’d say do it unless you can get him next week

      • I currently have 93k in bank and can trade either Billings or Taranto to him, with a bit of help of a couple of downgrades of course.

  • DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Whitfield, Ryan, Doedee (Rice, Murphy)
    MID: Macrae, Mitchell, Fyfe, Coniglio, Merrett, Taranto, Rockliff, Phillips (Coffield, Banfield)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Ronke, Guelfi, Smith (Giles-Langdon, Spargo)

    Cash: $145k

    Currently have gone Ronke (via Rockliff) to Crouch and Murphy to Austin and Coffield to Ahern. Thoughts on trades and other options appreciated

  • Stuck on my 3rd trade guys, any suggestions?
    Have gone Murray to Austin and Christensen to Westhoff so far leaving only 21k.
    Team now as follows:
    Def:Laird,Lloyd,Simpson,Seedsman,Sicily, Doedee, (Austin, Ridley)

    Mid:Titch,Coniglio,Fyfe,Merrett,Whitfield,Parker, Rockliff,Walters (Banfield, Philips)


    Fwd:McLean,Heeney, D.Smith,Westhoff, Guelfi, T.Smith (Gowers,Murphy)

    Don’t really want a R13 bye player but tempted to get Ahern given his low BE. Maybe for Doedee or Ridley.

  • Murray to brayshaw
    Brayshaw to Phillips
    T Smith to ahern (is he injured?)

    Should i look to sort rookies our to cover throughout the byes?
    Or look to get some promos in ?
    Another option could be;

    Brayshaw to ahern
    murray to brayshaw
    and make an upgrade elsewhere (who would be a good option?)

  • How good are 3 trades. Bye Bye Billings, Bundy and Mutch. It doesn’t matter who comes in I’m still smiling.

  • How long is Sandilands injury and will apeness hold his spot?

    • Fooz

      Apeness will hold, even if Sandi comes back in. Freo need a FWD target, and Apeness has played there before …. aaaaand been injured each time.
      If Sandi is back, Jones out.

      All I hope is that with Fyfe out, that Freo does not bring Danyle Pearce back in. Sure he may be carving it up in the WAFL, but he’s had his chance. More debutants please RoLy

  • Considering these trades this week (have too many players this round anyway)

    Billings > Ahern
    Lambert > Apeness (or rice/mihocek via dpps)
    Pearce > Austin

    Cull those fwd spuds (my fwd rookies are better anyway) cash in kitty to somewhat trade through byes (wont likely have 18 on field after this week)

    • Shags,
      Should I trade in McLean this week while I can afford him at this stage barring team selections.
      Trades currently are Mutch to Giro, Gowers to Ahern and Christensen to Westhoff.
      I have 22 on field this week.
      Tempted to trade Billings to Ahern as he’s a spud but not really improving my team by doing that.
      Pearce needs to go but happy to hold this week as I have enough playing.

      • McLean does have a good bye structure. Westhoff has a better one.
        It depends how much you care about the bye structure. There is no reason to believe Westhoff wont be top 6 fwd at this stage. Having a brilliant year. You could hold off to trade in McLean after his bye. If anything his price will drop a bit.

  • Do I get Gibbs this week, and treloar next week to save cash, or get treloar this week and get Mcrae next week? I have 667k

  • If Coniglio is out this week and then bye next week is it worth trading him for Ablett or Zorko permanently or T.Miller just for the byes?

  • Christensen this week and Ratigolea last week has cost me 3000 spots in the rankings. Better luck next year

  • Anyone considering Aaron Hall due to being available if not dropped next three weeks?

  • Fooz

    Useless DPPs. Oh Well.

    DEF: Laird, Brayshaw, Lloyd, Seedsman, Doedee, Rice (Cumming, Pearce)
    MID: Titch, Macrae, Conigs, Ross, Duncan, Merrett, Rocky, Ed Phillips (Banfield, Mutch)
    Ruck: Gawn, Nank, (Big O, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Taranto, Fristch, Petracca, Rioli (Murphy, ZGL)
    Bank: $179K, not quite enough for upgrades this week. Keeping an eye on backline injuries.

    Trades so far
    Mutch > Ahern
    Banfield > Giro – sorry Banfield, love to keep you there, but need the $$
    Cumming > SicDawg. Going early, can’t quite get to Yeo, and looking ahead to R13 and R14 trades.

    Happy Byemaggedon

  • Westhoff vs Rocky vs Boak? Best long-term option from those 3.

  • Scored 2354 on the weekend and moved up to rank 716 yeeeow!

    DEF:Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Sicily, Seedsman, Hurn (Rice, Murphy)
    MID:Titch, Cogs, Neale, Bont, Zerrett, Parker, Gus Brayshaw, Rocky (Phillips, Mutch)
    RUC:Gawn, Nic Nat (Mcinerney, Cameron)
    FWD:McLean, SMith, Heeney, Robinson, Fristch, Guelfi (ZGL, Clarke)

    Not much problem fielding 21 players this week, holding Cogs.
    7 out are all guns in the bye.

    Robinson is out injured, Mutch is injured, hopefully Clarke comes in for Zaharakis.

    Thinking of building a warnechest for next week to get Gaff and Macrae

    Robinson – Austin for a quick cash grab via Sicily
    Mutch – Ahern
    Murphy – Mihocek. Is it worth trading Murphy if named?
    Banks $549K for next week upgrades


    • Dont mind the triple downgrade. Looking to do it myself. Extra cash will help you trade through the last two byes.

    • great ranking kingzy, well deserved, wont go to your head like others. hate to rain on your parade but laird might be a late withdrawal with broken hand, cog’s may be a late withdrawal for concussion, seed may be a late withdrawal with abductor.

  • Ignoring Bye status.

    Which Forward will be top 6 this year and I should trade in.

    The Hoff. Walters.

    I feel Walters is good value for money at the moment. But If Hoff is a keeper might be worth grabbing irregardless of bye status (my bye structure is rancid).

    • Yea. I agree – id go with the hoff. im looking to get him in this week as well as i need/want someone from PA/GC there and rocky, westhoff and boak are th only 3 options and Westhoff seems the pick of the three.
      I think he is a keeper as well. Decent Ceiling. Consistent. There is no Ryder effect and I like his role on that wing for the power. Wingers seem to be enjoying a lot of the footy this year. He was on 71 i think at HT last week and somehow finished on just 96 – still the highest score for Port. So on another day where port werent as terrible he could have racked up a 120+ score.

    • Walters is cheap because a few times a year (a few times a game) he comes off injured… Big risk to ruin your week and force a trade.

  • FIrst two trades am going Coffield and Gowers out for Ahern and Austin, so team would look this this ↓

    with 308k remaning, what do think my last trade should be?

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Yeo, Whitfield, Sicily, Rice (Austin, Mirra)
    MID: Titch, Treloar, Cogs, Gibbs, Parker, Rocky, Brayshaw, Phillips (Spargo, Mutch)
    RUCK: Stef, Gawn
    FWD: Mclean, Heeney, Smith, Taranto, Fritsch, Guelfi (T. Smith, Ahern)


  • I’m now ranked 465 overall and want to consolidate my position. These are my current trades:

    Cog> Crisp (Seed DPP), Keeffe> Mihocek (Gus Brayshaw DPP magic) & Crowden> Ahern. 200k+ left

    The reason I’ve done this is to get players on the field.
    Here is my team before trades, if you have any constructive criticism that would be most appreciated:

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Seedsman, Sicily, Gus Brayshaw, Doedee (Cole, Duman)
    MID: Mitchell, Merrett, Sidebottom, Cog, FYfe, Macrae, Andy Brayshaw, E Phillips (Banfield, D Clarke)
    RUC: Gawn, Stef (McInerney, S Jones)
    FWD: Walters, Fritsch, D Smith, Guelfi, E Langdon, Heeney (Keeffe, Crowden)

  • Thoughts:

    1) Fyfe > T Phillips; Barry > Ahern & Pearce > Austin


    2) Bench Fyfe and go Christensen > Boak; Barry > Ahern & Pearce > Austin

  • Just to clarify…need to field 22 this week and 18 for remaining byes yea?

  • Ned kelly has hi jacked my moniker last weekend.
    I wont be making any posts under this handle again this year.
    Any posts are his.
    I dont use foul language and abuse people.
    I suspect he has done the same thing to jungle muffin and others. bye

  • Christensen to Ahern

    Mirra to Austin

    Stephenson to Westy

    207k left in the bank :)

  • my trades worked out well, had enough to go seed, banfield and brayshaw > t macdonald, ahern & zorko.

  • Which trades:
    A. Doedee/Spargo/Ronke > Brayshaw/Austin/Ahern
    leaves me with 284k
    B. Doedee/Spargo/Ronke > T Phillips/Austin/Ahern
    leaves me with 248k

    Is it too late to bring in Ed Phillips (334k/8BE)

  • Fooz

    Poor Ol Micky Barlow. busted jaw now. poor bugger just can’t get back on the field.

  • Fooz


    Delete team

  • Dusty Laird Cogs Fyfe Billings T.Smith Ridley out…

    And this is the round Im supposed to be stacked.

    At least it gives me a huge excuse to finally cull Billings (whom I should have culled 7 weeks ago) and Dusty.

  • Def Laird, Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Seedsman, Blakely (Rice, O’shea)
    Mid Titch, Gibbs, Neale, Merrett, Parker, Rockliff, Andrew Brayshaw, Phillips (Mutch, Clarke)
    Ruc Gawn, Martin (McInerney, Cameron)
    Fwd McLean, Smith, Heeney, Billings, Christensen, Guelfi (Rioli, T.Smith)

    36k, thinking of trading
    O’Shea > Austin
    Rioli > Ahern
    Billings > Westhoff or Brayshaw/Crouch via rocky dpp.
    Thoughts on these trades would be appreciated, cheers
