  1. Where's the Fyfe

    August 24, 2018 at 4:03 pm

    Witherden + Rocky out. In…
    A) Hodge (or Seedsman) + Hawkins
    B) Seedsman + Dunkley

  2. JJ

    August 24, 2018 at 4:04 pm

    Titch – Seb
    Rocky – Dunkley
    Gibbs – sidey
    Rocky – Hoff

      Option 1. Be brave!

    August 24, 2018 at 4:15 pm

    do i hold Parker?

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 4:16 pm

      I’d trade. With him being in some doubt, and the option to grab someone who you can pinch hit with for a decent score this week, then move him on.

  4. El Nicko

    August 24, 2018 at 4:28 pm

    Playing RDT and have 1 trade left and $11,900 left. Thoughts on which of the following trades I should go with:

    1 – Titch to Ross
    2 – Whitfield to Crouch
    3 – Cogs to T.Adams or Hunter
    4 – JOM to Steele or Ward
    5 – Dusty to Bont
    6 – Hold firm – don’t trade!

    Leaning towards Option 2 after reading Calvin’s Captains…

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:24 pm

      Dusty to Bont is probably the one I would do there… otherwise, Coniglio to Adams.

  5. Ivor Mac

    August 24, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Titch or Taylor Adams/Mitch Duncan (Have Ablett, Crouch, McCrae, Ross, Beamer, Merrett, Sidey). I don’t need to downgrade Titch as I have bench money but I am concerned about the mass Exodus of Mitchell. Still it would be so Tom Mitchell to punish fantasy owners with a 140

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      I wouldn’t be surprised for him to punish us! Adams would be my man there.

      • Ivor Mac

        August 24, 2018 at 6:14 pm

        Cheers Warnie. Hard to argue with a man pushing for a hat. Cheers for everything. I know u guys have to deal with rubbish alot but most of us appreciate what you do.

        It needs all three as well. The podcast wasn’t the same without you

    • The Cricket

      August 24, 2018 at 7:06 pm

      Easy decision for me to hang onto Titch cos my oppo has him too … and he has two forced trades (Witho and Rocky) so I know he won’t be trading him lol
      But he’s not going to be my captain!

  6. nw

    August 24, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    Fyfe or Sidebottom?

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:25 pm

        thanks, Legend!

  7. MattF

    August 24, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    at the moment ive traded coniglio to seb ross (could trade gibbs, selwood or zorko)
    and rockliff to billings (could get menegola/dunkley but opponent has both
    any thoughts would be appreciated

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:26 pm

      I would get Dunkley. Billings could burn you!

      Also, would you consider trading out Zorko? Hutchings tag is a worry!

    • The Cricket

      August 24, 2018 at 7:23 pm

      Aaaargh Billings! Shudder ….

  8. Majak Thor

    August 24, 2018 at 5:09 pm

    Option 1 or 2

    1. Witherden to Seedsman and Rocky to Ross
    2. Rocky to Ross and Titch to Crouch ( Field lienert for Witherden)
    Thoughts appreciated

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:26 pm

      Option 1 for me!

  9. Fudge

    August 24, 2018 at 5:16 pm

    Cripps or Mitchell our for seb Ross?

    • Warnie


      August 24, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      Mitchell… could be 80-120…. Cripps, good for 100 at a minimum.

  10. zac dawesome

    August 24, 2018 at 5:38 pm

    Who to trade – Coniglio or McLean? Who to bring in – Taylor Adams or Mitch Duncan or Sidey?

  11. nkthegunner12

    August 24, 2018 at 5:39 pm

    Trade out McLean or Heeney?

  12. The Official Oscar McInerney

    August 24, 2018 at 5:42 pm

    is it worth going safe with menagola or risky with hawkins

    • The Cricket

      August 24, 2018 at 7:26 pm

      Hawkins = key forward = unreliable

      How brave are you feeling? And are you the underdog in a GF?

  13. JJ

    August 24, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    Zorko -> Fyfe
    Shuey -> Joel Selwood?

  14. Charles

    August 24, 2018 at 6:07 pm

    Heeney or Mclean to Dunkley? Opponent has Mclean

  15. Bruce

    August 24, 2018 at 6:08 pm

    I’m in a draft league so options aren’t as plentiful, but who should I run as captain this week?
    Titch, Yeo, Sidebottom?

    I think I have gone Titch every game this year and only lost one, but I’m not too confident in him this week.

    Yeo is in stellar form (127 last 5 rounds), Sidey could have an absolute field day against Freo, but then again, Titch might feel 2 or 3 votes will seal the brownlow and want to go that extra yard.

  16. M8

    August 24, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    Stupid to get Hawkins in over Dunkley?
    Trades currently are Rockliff to Menegola and Wingard to Hawkins

  17. PigsRUs

    August 24, 2018 at 6:28 pm

    Menegola or Fyfe?

  18. Lewie-14

    August 24, 2018 at 7:24 pm

    Ross or Crouch ?

  19. mfawcett

    August 24, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    FMDT, sort of! Traded Goddard out for Hodge, the week he decides to go off for 116! Rest of team not too bad. 5/547. The only let down was Wines.

  20. The Cricket

    August 24, 2018 at 11:05 pm

    Is anyone else having trouble with the app (android) tonight?
    Haven’t been able to see anything other than my team page since lockout! App crashes whenever I try to open the leagues page to see my match-up. Same thing if I try to ppen stats etc.
    Very frustrating that the app f**ks up in the Grand Final!!!

    • David

      August 25, 2018 at 9:19 am

      Yes .. same for me 🤬

  21. Petez

    August 24, 2018 at 11:26 pm

    Trading out Goddard this round is the craziest thing ever. You have a bloke who is playing his last game and wanting to prove a point and his worth to other clubs. He was going to go all out tonight. My mate was going to trade him until I stopped him. I actually traded him in this week for witherden. Upgraded rocky to menagola.

    • mfawcett

      August 25, 2018 at 12:42 am

      problem is, yes was his last game, but very low scores the last 6 rounds, even with the 10 he had for the knee injury he suffered. Hodge is playing WCE where the ball should be in his hands a lot more with the way they’re going to kill the Lions. Hodge has been producing much better scores the past few weeks.

    • Anaconda

      August 25, 2018 at 3:15 pm

      Gonna be some HUUUUGE scores this weekend all the popular players going big.

    Taylor Adams are you like #_@&ing kidding me!!!!!

    • The Cricket

      August 25, 2018 at 6:32 pm

      Yeah, at least he’s outscoring Fyfe atm. Crazy match, tied at 3/4 time wtf?!

  24. PowerAde

    August 25, 2018 at 6:06 pm

    crazy scoring, 7 players done before pies v freo for 850 and i was ranked 23k for the round! guy i’m playing has same amount playing and he is around 1100. i reckon it could be a record this week

  25. The Cricket

    August 25, 2018 at 6:43 pm

    Why hasn’t the (android) app been fixed yet? WTF?!!?! The biggest round of the season and the app’s not working ffs 😠 Shame on useless fantasy techies!
    (We don’t all have phone screens the size of minivans needed for the website to be a decent option)

    Yeah my android app keeps shitting itself.

    I’m just short of 2000 with 6 stars yet to play. Go you good thing.

  27. Andy.J

    Ed Curnow (never will he be in my team again). Has probably cost me my GF.

  28. j

    August 26, 2018 at 1:24 pm

    2200, with 2 in play (1st quarter game at Gabba) and 3 to come.

  29. clown4

    August 26, 2018 at 6:32 pm

    2675 all done. Should beat The Traders team in the GF but will be close.

    • Clown5

      August 26, 2018 at 6:54 pm
