Poll – Feel the Byrne

Written by Schwarzwalder on 9:00 am, April 18 2016

As requested by Yiorgiakis…………

There’s no denying it, the Byrnes boys are going to be very popular in trading this week.  With the job security of Tom Ruggles shaking like a polaroid picture, the Byrneseses (I was saying Boo-urns) seem like safe downgrade options.

Darcy Byrne-Jones (PTA, $123 900):  61 & 97 SC pts in his first two appearances.  21 disposals and a goal on Sunday against the Giants from 80% Time On Ground.  His spot looks fairly secure in this under-performing Port line-up.  Break Even of -85, projected BEs of -60 &

Trade Talk – R4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 10:14 pm, April 17 2016

Priddis a late out, Stefan Martin got steam-rolled, Johannisen out for a reported four months with a torn hamstring, Robbie Gray under MRP scrutiny……..what a shocking round!

No doubt those fingers are getting itchy to trade. What are your first thoughts for trading this week?

The Captains Table – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 7:30 am, April 15 2016

No shortage of great Captains choices last week.  Robbie Gray started the weekend off with a respectable 123 on Friday night.  Hannebery & Parker pumped out 125 & 129 respectively against GWS.  Saturday night saw Ablett score another 135 while Priddis (117) & Fyfe (115) duked it out in the WA Derby.  However they all paled into comparison on Sunday when Goldy (172) and Danger (166) decided to beast things up a touch.  Well done to those Coaches that had the patience (and cojones) to jump on the Sunday options.  Just quietly……they all had an invite to the Captains Table last Friday!

Table For Two – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 2:00 pm, April 14 2016

During the pre-season, ‘Thommo’s 2-UP’ was a wildly popular thread on SCT.  Seeing as our Thumbs Function is working (splendidly!) again, we’ll open it up to you, the SCT Community.

Which two players are you mulling over?  Which two players can you simply not seperate?  Type their names into the comments below and the SCT Community will point you in the right direction with the Thumbs UP / DOWN.

 

Just a few things to keep in mind before posting:

Movers & Shakers – Rd3

Written by Schwarzwalder on 11:00 am, April 14 2016

In the tradition of Motts’ Movers, ‘Movers & Shakers’ will look at those players making a big impact (or no impact) over a short amount of time.  We’ve finally got the 3-Round averages happening!  There are a few early season bolters on the list……question is: can they keep up this scorching form?  This weeks Movers & Shakers are (Player, Club, Current Price, 3-Round Average):

 

DEFENDERS

Bachar Houli (RICH $534 500, 115) – 36 touches at 88% Disposal Efficiency plus ten marks contributed to his 144 SC pts during the heavy loss to the Crows.

Burning Question – Rd4

Written by Schwarzwalder on 5:00 am, April 14 2016

Gray or Parker?

I’ve seen this question posed in many different threads over the last few days.  So let’s put it to rest for everyone………

Robbie Gray – 126, 129 & 123 from his first three outings.  Gray’s secret to success lies in his contested possessions.  He is #1 in the AFL for contested ball! (Averaging 19.33 per game till now!).   Just about a one-man-show in the Port midfield, Gray looks a top chance to finish in the Top10 SC-Midfielders for the season.  Next five opponents: GWS, GEE, RICH, BRL, CARL.

Luke Parker – 161,
