  1. Who to trade Steven for…can get anyone bar Ablett and Pendles due to lack of funds. Was leaning to one of Bont/Selwood/Sloane/Dusty???

    1. I’d say the Bont Qwert. Limited pre-season and still smashing them, think he can push towards Danger range this year. Not quite there but getting closer. Style of play seems to be favoured by the champion data scoring and goes forward if tagged.

  2. If pickett doesnt make the final cut tonight

    T/U keep him at M11 as he is cheap and will get games, stick with plan to trade florent to Butler
    T/D keep florent and go pickett to butler

  3. Have about $190k in the bank and thinking about ditching Mills for Adams.

    Mills is set to start losing money, so I reckon I need to make the call on him this week. Adams the best performing defender, despite Collingwood’s poor start.

    TU: Do it, it’s a no-brainer
    TD: Mills will come good

    1. You should definitely bring in *someone* for Mills. Adams is scoring well, but he is also very injury prone. Is there anyone else you can afford?

      1. Already have Shaw and Howe, but anyone else is fair game.

        Like Docherty, but reckon he’ll have a price drop along the way to make him more palatable. Laird and JJ have had their own injury issues. Adams seemed the better option. I suppose Rance or Boyd could be considered, but not sure on their upside.

        Thoughts?

  4. Went Hibberd to WHE, but i’m also thinking of going pickett to houston. However it’d mean id have to move taranto to mid and sit on the bench. Already have eddy and butler.

    TU: good move
    TD: waste of a trade

    1. Considering rhe same, but I’m leaning towards holding off on Houston and just waiting on guys like Hayward, Long, Parsons etc. who may pop up as forward options in the coming weeks. I reckon Pickett plays, so I’d rather get some money out of the trade if I’m offloading him early.

  5. Considering trading Ryder out, moving Nank into the rucks, Steele forward and then bringing Ollie Wines into my Midfield.
    Rucks will then be Nank/Sandi/Witts.

    T/U: Do it.
    T/D: Wasted trade

  6. Considering making the 1 trade.
    Or are they not worth a trade at this early stage?

    T/U Pickett – WHE
    T/D Pickett – Houston

  7. Seriously thinking of doing the unthinkable & going against the number 1 rule in Supercoach……………

    Hannebery off the pi$$ & looks disinterested out ……… Heppell new EFC captain with huge point to prove in, with the extra cash go Smith ( injured 4 months ) to Marchbank! Before you banish me to the outer of SCT feed back forever, this is my thoughts!

    The amount of cash I’m going to lose & potential points on Hanners unless he does a 360 degree turn around over the next fortnight is huge, but on the other hand I’ll be making huge $$$$$ on Heppell & Marchbank but also strengthening my defence in the meantime . I’m yet to make a trade this season, but Hanners is my weakest link as I have 90% of all the rookies making $$$$. I’ve decided on Marchbank with awesome JS over WHE as the Pies have still got Elliott, Wells & De Goey to come back curtailing WHE scoring in the coming weeks!

    T/U………Nike, just do it Catta
    T/D………Get away from the computer, you’re off ya head Catta

      1. Definitely not, LTW

        The SCT community has made many decisions for me over the last 6-7 years, this in yet another one that I’ve put out there for debate!

        1. Just did it. I couldnt afford marchbank so I brought in nank. Now watch hanners got nuts tonight lol

        2. Hold Catta…. hold mate. Hanners will come good like most premo s that go through ruts. You spent 3-4 months on your team pre season don’t give up after two weeks…. Ton tonight

          1. I think he is injured, not in a rut. If he was just having a bad spell, like Treloar, that would be hold time. But, if he is hurt, that different. No point in holding an injured player.

          2. Thanks Leo, always appreciate your feed back.

            Truth be told, I had Heppell in my team right up until a week before the start of the season but wasn’t sure how’d he go with 12 months off!

            1. Good luck then mate. You sound convinced and that’s the main thing. Back yourself. There’s never a right or wrong with these things right now. Only time will tell.

    1. I am with you Catta. While I don’t have Hanners, I traded NRoo to Heppell last week with the view that he will potentially end up a top 8 mid. I don’t regret the trade as it is possible that NRoo will need to be managed and at this early stage I can trade him back in if he proves me wrong. Hanners is likely to bounce back, but the only sure thing is that he will drop in price for now.

  8. Is it worth an early upgrade from Roughead to Buddy? Money is not an issue – I have close to $200K in the bank.

    TU: Go for it.
    TD: Wait.

    1. Sorry thumbs, I backed my gut… and Buddy went and got a 74. Roughead will probably get 150+ against Gold Coast now.

      Still, I don’t see Roughead as a top 6 forward this year, but I do see Buddy being one, so from a long-term perspective I’m still pretty happy with my decision.

  9. Do you ever find you’re writing a question, then realise “I know the answer to this already”?

    T/U Yes
    T/D No

  10. Assuming Higgins does NOT burn (its hard, but try), which would be the smarter trade in this week for Cam McCarthy?

    T/U: Higgins in FWD (potential top 6 FWD non-burn)
    T/D: Oliver in M6 (potential breakout season, post-byes upgrade?)

    I know im walking a fine line here, but i need that little something to bump my side up (or down!) a bit… Thanks!

    1. Higgins more of a chance at Top6FWD (non-burn, of course) than Oliver as Top8MID. Reckon Oliver would then cost you two trades all up than Higgins with one……

  11. Mountford–> Houston
    Steele –> Clay Oliver

    Not sold on WHE, Nank (or Steele)

    Thumbs up — solid
    Thumbs down — crazy

  12. McCarthy to Houston
    Barrett to Hoskins Elliot (via dpp link with parfitt)
    Purely for bigger potential cash grab
    TU great idea
    TD back to drawing board.
    These will be my first two trades as I held the trigger finger on Riewoldt last week. Leaves me with two nonscoring rookies still in hibbered and evw but can’t trade them as I fall. 2500 short
    Cheers

  13. Thinking Hanners to Viney. Allows me to free up cash to get Marchbank.

    T/U – Good Idea
    T/D – Bad Idea

  14. After tossing and turning at season start I went with Ryder in Fwd line to open up loophole.

    T/u Trade Ryder for Nankervis
    T/d save the trade

    Comments – burn the loophole and bring in WHE

  15. Have already gone Picket -> WHE

    Is it worth going
    Florent or Parfitt -> Butler

    TU double trade
    TD double trade is double trouble and Butler isn’t worth it

  16. Trying to ignore my itchy trade finger and stay firm on my final decision not to trade out Taranto for WHE….. 4 minutes before game time, I need to walk away from the computer!

  17. Hi everyone, I had JPK as vice who didn’t score enough to take. All my match ups are predicted to be close (within about 100) and all opponents have Danger as captain.
    Do I….
    TU: Go with Danger
    TD: Take a risk and go with Gawn?

    1. Damn! I followed the thumbs. I thought there was a risk of a lower score but I didn’t think I would break him.
