    Sicily to Hurley leaving $135k for a Gray upgrade next week…..or

    Get Brayshaw/Whitfield and don’t worry about the cash?

  3. M8

    July 20, 2018 at 5:02 pm

    DEF: Laird, Yeo, Lloyd, Simpson, Whitfield, Sicily (Lynch, Smith)
    MID: Mitchell, Kellly, Sidebottom, Coniglio, Cripps, Merrett, Crouch, Sier (Banfield, Narkle)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (McInerney, Cameron)
    FWD: McLean, Heeney, Smith, Wingard, Rockliff, Ahern (Guelfi, Ronke)

    Cash: $137k

    Currently have gone Banfield (via Smith) to O’Riordan fielding him for Sicily and Guelfi to Danger putting Ahern to the mids and Narkle to Fwds bench. Will trade Sicily to Brayshaw next week

    • Miyagi-san

      July 20, 2018 at 5:10 pm

      Nice moves m8, do like

    Thoughts on shuey?

    • andyjh

      July 20, 2018 at 5:47 pm

      I have him as my M8. Definately still cheap enough to grab.

  5. Miyagi-san

    July 20, 2018 at 5:09 pm

    D: Laird whit gus yeo Simpson b.lynch (Pearce j. smith)
    M: Titch gaff Conig jelly mrouch mclean curnow sier (ahern d.clarke)
    R: max Stef (Crossley Cameron)
    F: heeney Sicily rocky Devon billings r.gray (Giro Brander )

    Currently weighing up 3 options, open to other thoughts though…
    1) Sicily/Brander to Danger/ O’Riordan +79k. Pro: leaves just 2 rooks on field, culls dead weight, cheapest danger will be for a few weeks and is named on ball again this week.
    Con: gray continue to bleed money- even before his concussion was only on 26 half way through 3rd- does a Giro /ahern score higher? possibly not enough coin to up again next week

    2) Sicily/ Gray to Danger/O’Riordan +330k.
    Pro: culls dead weight, cashes in on Gray for his highest amount in the next few weeks, can get anyone(macrae) next week.
    Con: step backward with 3 rooks on field (ahem sier O’Riordan), hoping against hope for no more injuries as will need more trades to finish team

    3) Sicily/ Gray to Shuey/Sloane +38k.
    Pro: culls dead weight, keeps 2 rooks on field (ahern lynch), potential to get 1 or 2 gun mids at basement price, increases scoring?
    Con: big risk play- does Sloane get tagged into oblivion again? Misses possibly last decent dollar earner for final upgrades in O’Riordan.


    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:06 pm

      I would go 3 just because I want to maximize the amount of points my team is scoring. Also depends on the position you are in whether you just playing for league or you trying to get the best ranking possible.

  6. Jeremy

    July 20, 2018 at 5:37 pm

    So I have Sicily that needs to be moved on but also have Seedsman, DBJ and doedee that need to go

    Do I get rid if Sicily and Seedsman for Brayshaw and C O’Riordan and 268k to upgrade others next week
    Sicily and DBJ for hurn and Hurley and 22k cash

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:10 pm

      Sicily and Seedsman for me. Will the brayshaw – O’riodran outscore the hurn – hurley. I think it will be extremely close. Cash is so really good positive.

      • Jeremy

        July 20, 2018 at 6:16 pm

        If I go Sicily and Seedsman to Brayshaw and O’Riordan then I have a to choose which 2 to field out of

        DBJ/ doedee/ O’Riordan

  7. Jeff

    July 20, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    Shuey or Sloane?

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:11 pm

      Sheuy for me, less likely to get a tag every week. Weather is the only concern for me this week with Shuey

    • Bughead

      July 20, 2018 at 6:24 pm

      Sloane. Shuey’s recent high scores are an anomaly I reckon.

  8. Connor

    July 20, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Whitfield, Sic dawg (O’Riordan, Redman)
    MID: Titch, Gaff, Beams, Cogs, Gibbs, Sidey, Parker, Sier (J.Smith, Mutch)
    RUCK: Stef, Gawn (Cameron)
    FWD: Mclean, Heeney, Smith, Rocky, Taranto, Walters (Ahern, Wilson)


    1) Sic > Brayshaw + Walters > Menegola/Langdon/Wingard

    2) SIc > Danger + Walters > Hoff/Crouch/Pendles

    3) Sic > Wingard + Walters > Zerrett/Selwood/Oliver/Cripps

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:13 pm

      1 for me mate. Brayshaw a top 3 defender come season end.

  9. SheepKilla

    July 20, 2018 at 5:59 pm

    who should i trade out of curnow and neale??

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:17 pm

      Curnow for me, I read somewhere Neale has good stats at eithad.

  10. Pickle Juice

    July 20, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    Fritsch to Lambert (to match opponent), Billings (on a run) or Ziebell (against Collingwood)…having Sicily to Brayshaw locked leaves me only 17K…sitting 9th so really need the win…perhaps should go Franklin v GC (SMay is good though)

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:23 pm

      Will May get Buddy ? Or will Thompson pick him up ? I dont like Ziebell role does not give consistent points.

      • The Cricket

        July 21, 2018 at 9:35 pm

        Thompson did a great job shutting Buddy down!

  11. Nathan

    July 20, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    Hi guys,

    Stuck on two options

    1) Sicily and BigO to Macrae and Abbott

    2) Sicily and Goddard to Shuey and Yeo/Whitfield

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:26 pm

      You can wait on Macrae this week. but option 1 is the better option. Set and forget.

  12. Lach

    July 20, 2018 at 6:20 pm

    Beams or Sloane?

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      Beams for me, Sloane likely to get tagged this week and future weeks

  13. Ryan

    July 20, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Simpson or Angus Brayshaw?

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:28 pm

      Brayshaw for me, I like the youth policy in this situation. Will Simpson play every game till the end of the season ?

  14. JJ

    July 20, 2018 at 6:32 pm

    Shuey or Heppell?

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:45 pm

      Both solid options, how much do you think Zaharakis inclusion affect Heppell scoring ?

  15. Jeremy

    July 20, 2018 at 6:44 pm

    Field only 2

    DBJ/ doedee/ O’Riordan

    • Adrian

      July 20, 2018 at 6:50 pm

      I’m not the best with this mate but I would field DBJ and O’Riordan but doedee is a safe 70-80 ? Who do you think ?

      • Jeremy

        July 20, 2018 at 6:54 pm

        Might go O’Riordan over doedee

  16. Rocky Road

    July 20, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    Seedsman – Short
    Fritsch – Buddy
    And downgrade spargo to get Ahern to danger next week
    Spargo – 170k (bench)
    Fritsch – Danger + 254k to get seedy out to Brayshaw next week

    • Anthony

      July 20, 2018 at 7:11 pm

      Need Seedy Out More than Fritta. Do No. 1

  17. Plugger

    July 20, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Thoughts on Heppell or Sloane for my final midfield slot?

    • Tex

      July 20, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Heppell. Sloane always seems to get a few putrid 60’s every season.

      July 22, 2018 at 12:22 am


  18. Jack

    July 20, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    a) Hurley + Coniglio

    b) Shuey + Coniglio

    c) Gaff + Leinert + 300k for Macrae next week.

  19. Anthony

    July 20, 2018 at 7:09 pm

    Who will score more?

    Gaff and Fritsch
    Shuey and Billings

  20. Connor

    July 20, 2018 at 7:12 pm

    1) Brayshaw + Wingard

    2) Zerrett + WIngard

    3) Danger + Crouch

  21. Gareth

    July 20, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    Trade out Rocky or Mclean?

    • ANthony

      July 20, 2018 at 7:30 pm

      Rocky. DOnt know your team but I wouldn’t be trading McLean Just yet…

  22. David

    July 20, 2018 at 7:25 pm

    Hey guys! Please pick one!

    Gaff, Beams or Coniglio.


    • Anthony

      July 20, 2018 at 7:32 pm

      Beams will go big this week but is always a possibility he gets himself injured. so gaff

    • Tex

      July 20, 2018 at 7:35 pm

      Gaff, Coniglio, Beams in that order.

        Field ahern hey …. pffft I fielded Roble instead and recommend you quit now before you sink lower you clown

  25. Marcus

    July 21, 2018 at 9:47 am

    Laird, Lloyd, Brayshaw
    Yeo, Whitfield, Touhy (Lynch, Lienert)

    Titch, Merrett, D Smith, Coniglio
    Redden, Neale, Rockliff, Heeney (Sier, Wilson)

    Gawn, Jacobs, (McInerney, Cameron)

    Menegola, Langdon, McLean
    Daisy, Boak, Ahern, (Narkle, T Smith)

    This week I Traded in Lienert and Lloyd for J Smith and Sicily.

    I am now really stuck on what Rookies to bring in. As you can see last week I brought Lienert in. I really want a Forward Rookie but got no idea who I could bring in. I was going to bring in either Polson, Ballard or Powell last week but I think they are week options except for Ballard who is a bit expensive.

    Bought in Ed Langdon as a POD in the forward line. He scored 19. Did he break a leg or something?

    • j

      July 22, 2018 at 1:39 pm

      He’s not listed in the match report injuries and h’s time on ground is listed as 83%, so he probably had a full game and a stinker at that.

  31. j

    July 22, 2018 at 2:47 pm

    Is Simpson actually a top 6 defender?

    On track for a 60, following 70 last week and a DNP the week before over the three weeks I’ve had him.

    • j

      July 22, 2018 at 3:16 pm

      Wow, just after I said that, he doubled his score very late in the third quarter.

    • Nostro

      July 22, 2018 at 5:11 pm

      Smashed out an 84 (lol)…I’ll take that (if I had him), over Crisp 44.

      SicDawg & Nic Nat made this week forced changes only, rather than anything strategic. C’est la vie….what can you do!!!

  32. Andy.J

    July 22, 2018 at 2:49 pm

    Go Tich! Finally captained him in the right week.

    • j

      July 22, 2018 at 2:56 pm

      I think most people burnt by the roulette of the past 4 weeks would have Titch captain this week. Not having other decent options, Thursday games, or Calvin over-emphasize selected stats this week helps ensure that.

  33. j

    July 22, 2018 at 2:58 pm

    Ed Curnow has scored 0 points in the third quarter. Is is on ground playing, or injured?

  34. j

    July 22, 2018 at 3:05 pm

    Added +6 10 seconds before 3/4 time siren – so he was alive after all.
