UPDATE: Thursday 5:57pm AEST

UPDATE: Thursday 5:00pm AEST

It’s been a big week already for team news. We know that Hamish Hartlett (suspended – 2 weeks), Dyson Heppell (foot), Aaron Sandilands (face), Garrick Ibbotson (achilles), Scott D Thompson (lung – season) but there is doubt on a lot of other players including Pearce Hanley, Jack Riewoldt, and more.



  1. Murph

    August 22, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    I’m in the weird position on actually hoping Hanley is out. That’ll leave my opponent with a donut, but I’ll have Grimes as cover. I know Grimes isn’t much, but hopefully he can score more than zero. HOPEFULLY.

    • jake

      August 22, 2013 at 7:13 pm

      You wouldn’t be Cake from Dream stats by any chance?

  2. mfawcett

    August 22, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    little concerned if I end up with Hartlett, Heppel and Hanley out. Have Shaw, which isn’t saying much as of late as cover on the bench just hope there’s no more big outs in the backline or I as many will be screwed.

  3. Simon

    August 22, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    I’m almost too scared to look at the teams tonight… will be holding my breath that the backline doesn’t suffer any unpredictable carnage!

  4. Gerryboy

    August 22, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    I’m sure theres going to be plenty of backline carnage!!

  5. PortPower

    August 22, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    Praying that Hanley is in!

    • Deztroyer


      August 22, 2013 at 6:42 pm

      he is in… they have til sunday to see if he will play but i think he will be a late out.

  6. mbrucie

    August 22, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Sneaking suspicion Ellis will be out… :O (just a gut feel, not trying to fuel a false rumour, as I will most likely be wrong)

  7. mbrucie

    August 22, 2013 at 6:16 pm


  8. Gian

    August 22, 2013 at 6:25 pm


  9. Big Feller

    August 22, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Didak is back – get on!

  10. Deztroyer


    August 22, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    great… no ibbot or blee… FMDT

    hanley will be a late out i think

  11. Dylan

    August 22, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Is it worth trading for backline cover in case Hanley is a late out? IUt would mean I have to keep O’keefe.

    Backline cover -> Hepp and O’keefe to O’brien and Riewoldt (DPP)

    No Cover -> Hepp and O’keefe to O’Brien and Bob Murphy

    • Jordan

      August 22, 2013 at 6:41 pm

      i’d go reiwoldt over murphy

  12. Robo

    August 22, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Hanley not named as an out. & Kruezer is back! not as bad as i might have thought.

  13. Deztroyer


    August 22, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    2 outs in back line and 2 cover on bench…

    would you bring in 2 defenders… duffman and bob murphy (just incase hanley is a late out)

    or would you bring in 1 defender and 1 FWD… duffman and n.volt (putting jjk on bench and also maybe getting a donut in defense with hanley’s late out)

    or would you bring in 1 defender and 1 fwd… duffman and griffen (this will put ROK on the bench and maybe get a donut if hanley is a late out)


  14. Jack


    August 22, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    Should I play cotchin v GWS or stanton v Carlton

    • Tom

      August 22, 2013 at 6:49 pm

      Both will most likely get tagged.

  15. heyheyhey

    August 22, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Decisions decisions…

    a) Heppell/Shaw to O’brien/Birchall
    b) Heppell/Shaw to O’Brien/Duffield
    c) Heppell/JJK to Hibberd/Stokes


  16. Tom

    August 22, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Would Bob Murphy and Duffield in the same team be too risky?

    • Deztroyer


      August 22, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      im thinking of bring them both in… just in case hanley is a late out

  17. Kym

    August 22, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    Tom Mitchell in – but will he cop the vest ??

  18. discomute

    August 22, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Yeah I have Hanley and Mitchell but It suited me better to have them miss damn it

  19. Deztroyer


    August 22, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Ibbot/blee to duffman/bob murphy
    (will give me cover for when hanley if he is a late out)

    Ibbot/titchel to duffman or BOB/griffen
    (putting ROK on bench)

    Ibbot/hansen to duffman or BOB/n.volt
    (putting JJK on bench)

  20. profane01

    August 22, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Upgrading my M8 this week. My opponent has Deledio so I’m thinking either him, Danger, Monty or even Watson. Any suggestions (I have Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, Barlow, Jelwood, Griffen and Fyfe)

    • Deztroyer


      August 22, 2013 at 7:34 pm

      beams or monty

  21. Henry

    August 22, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Decisions, decisions.
    Do I upgrade M8 by Mitchell to Beams.
    Or do I improve my defence. At present if Hanley drops out I have McKenzie as cover. I could trade McKenzie out for O’Brien and move 1 of Shaw, Hanley or Duffield to the bench.
    Any advice.

    • zeralus

      August 22, 2013 at 7:54 pm

      I’d roll the dice and assume Hanley will play. McKenzie as cover is adequate.

      I’m upgrading Mitchell to Beams, which leaves Heppell and Blee on my defence bench, which means no cover. I don’t have Hanley though.

    • Traff78

      August 22, 2013 at 7:55 pm

      Think you have to bring in beams given mckenzies isnt the worst cover in the world.

  22. jake

    August 22, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Completely off topic, but has anyone else with assistant coach noticed that in players history at grounds stats on their “Player Profile” it seems to believe that “Gabba” and “The Gabba” are separate grounds.

    For example Harry O has played 1 game at Gabba, and 5 games at “The Gabba”

    Or am I missing something here?

    (His average is better at “Gabba”, if you were interested)

    • Savabeer

      August 23, 2013 at 12:13 am

      That’s also the case with Skilled and Simonds Stadium.

  23. Shazzam

    August 22, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    Hibberd or Pearce

    • Traff78

      August 22, 2013 at 8:00 pm

      Pearce, been playing well and has greater upside

      • zeralus

        August 22, 2013 at 8:07 pm

        I’d go Pearce, as Carlton kept Hibberd to a low score last time they played.

  24. Traff78

    August 22, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    Should I play T Mitchell or ROK? I think ROK but Mitchell could be good after rest

  25. Rubitonurnuts

    August 22, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Who would you leave out – Priddis, Ball or Jack ?

    Who would you NO bring in – O’Brien, Ellis, or Pearce ?

  26. Traff78

    August 22, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Leave out Jack as the other two very consistent and not bring in Ellis because I think he will get tagged given success of last week.

    • Rubitonurnuts

      August 22, 2013 at 8:23 pm

      righto – Ellis got 55 last week and plays GWS ?

      • Traff78

        August 22, 2013 at 8:29 pm

        Yeah he got tagged last week, hence only 55. GWS like to tag but yes if he doesn’t get tagged he could do well. I think O’brien should do well against west coast

  27. Charlie Sheen

    August 22, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    God damn Henderson was only supposed to miss one week!

    Now I have the cash to do 2 upgrades this week, should I bench Heppel and Henderson and go Staker>Enright Clisby>O’Brien ?

    • Traff78

      August 22, 2013 at 8:22 pm

      Might as well trade out Henderson and have staker as back up since Henderson gone for season

      • Charlie Sheen

        August 22, 2013 at 10:42 pm

        Damn, yeah may as well, cheers. Just read the injury list on the AFL site, backline has had so much going on this year!

  28. Shags

    August 22, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    Heard on SEN Cotchin has a small chance being a late out.

  29. gambler


    August 22, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    I had to rub my eyes….. CHAPPY! could go bang. Apart from that no other stupid withdrawals thank god

  30. Ryan

    August 22, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    Great news with Hanley in. Boyd or Barlow? Or any other option?

    • Karl

      August 22, 2013 at 9:34 pm

      Real chance to go big is Jack Stevens – plays GC, or Lids – plays GWS

      • Ryan

        August 22, 2013 at 9:42 pm

        Sorry to say but I’d rather trade in Kepler Bradley over Steven, too much of a risk when I can afford Boyd and Barlow who also have an easier run.

  31. Karl

    August 22, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Roughead or Grundy in ruck? – got no other choice…

    • Ryan

      August 22, 2013 at 9:45 pm

      Roughy, Roos are a tall defender short so he could go big

    • Traff78

      August 22, 2013 at 10:25 pm


  32. Tom

    August 22, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Opt 1: This week – Henderson/Heppell – O’Brien/Murphy.
    Next week – Mayes/Griffen(McKenzie tag) – Minson/Libba.

    Opt 2: This week – Henderson/JJK – Murphy/Minson.
    Next week – Heppell/Griffen(McKenzie tag) – Hibberd/Libba.

    Opt 3: This week – Henderson/Heppell – Murphy/Duffield.
    Next week – Mayes/Nicholls – Riewoldt/Minson.

    Thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    • Ryan

      August 22, 2013 at 10:00 pm

      Throw up between 1 and 2 I would say, Duff has the easier run compared to Harry

      • Tom

        August 22, 2013 at 10:09 pm

        Duffield is only in Opt 3?

        • Ryan

          August 22, 2013 at 10:53 pm

          1 & 3

  33. Damo


    August 22, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Who do I play on the field, Terlich or Grimes?

    • Tom

      August 22, 2013 at 10:14 pm


      • gambler


        August 22, 2013 at 10:38 pm


        I copped it when i told people not to trade terlich to grimes a few weeks ago…. id like to see how those people are traveling now

  34. Zac

    August 22, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Need some help guys.
    Roughead-Minson Switching Cox to Fwd line. (jjk as f7)
    Mitchell to Beams. (R’okeefe as M9)

    Help Appreciated!

    • Brak


      August 22, 2013 at 11:08 pm

      I would get Beams in. I think Roughy will go OK.

  35. Brak


    August 22, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    27 Green Dots here so no panic. (Heppell, Ibbo and Hendo(FWD) with band-aids) Grimes covering a possible Hanley late out.
    1 – Ellis & Jack Steven
    2 – Duffield & Montagna

    Leaning towards no 2, Was going to trade Stanton out but Cotchin’s injury cloud means he is going.

    • tony too cool

      August 23, 2013 at 12:17 am

      Just posted below then read yours. Very worried about cotch myself!
      I would worry about Ellis getting tag again seeing as it worked well for carlton. Duffield no chance of tag but prob not the ceiling.
      Also would take Montag over Steven
      Option 2 easily for me.

  36. tom

    August 22, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    Help needed !! Who to bring in .

    Harry O
    Bob murphey

    Any one else

    • tony too cool

      August 23, 2013 at 12:21 am

      1. enright 2.Scotland 3.old smurf 4.Harry
      Pretty much a lottery but goodluck.

  37. tony too cool

    August 23, 2013 at 12:08 am

    Lucky enough to have enough cover and only have to use only 1 trade in my backline.
    The other trade is luxury.
    Have a midfield of swan, ablett, beams, barlow, pendles, griffin, cotchin, mundy and playing priddis on bench.
    Original plans were Mundy to Jelwood
    After last week and injury rumours I am a bit worried about cotchin.
    Also thinking Jelwood due for a off week as he been up for so long.
    Do you think maybe better off going cotch to Montags, Watson or even s selwood.
    Anyone else worried that Jelwood due for a off game?
    Thoughts appreciated

    • tom

      August 23, 2013 at 12:27 am

      BACK him In l Say

  38. Deztroyer


    August 23, 2013 at 11:17 am

    Ibbot/blee to duffman/bob murphy
    (will give me cover for when hanley if he is a late out)

    Ibbot/titchel to duffman or BOB/griffen
    (putting ROK on bench)

    Ibbot/hansen to duffman or BOB/n.volt
    (putting JJK on bench)
