    1. Well, if they were reading Supercoachtalk.com they wouldn’t be doing so badly and giving up! Of course we were left out! 😉

    1. Why limited interest in Danger? Can someone explain is he carrying an injury or likely to get a heavy tag??

      1. Sore ribs still from Rd4, from this weeks presser.

        “It was certainly sore for the rest of that game and he played that one out,” Scott said.

        “He’s played every week since and he hasn’t really missed training.

        “I think while he’s a little bit sore in the ribs, it’s not something that is even close to making him unavailable.”

  1. Have counted up my players for Round 11 and if I trade in Kennedy (WCE) for WHE this week, I will have 14 players – which is really bad. My preferred option was to bring in Heeney but he has the R11 bye, leaving me with 13. I think I’m facing lots of donuts that week regardless of choice, so who would you bring in?

    TU – Heeney $491,600 Av 107 BE 42 L3 – 117
    TD – Kennedy (WCE) $531,000 Av 105 BE 114 L3 -113

    Or maybe I keep WHE and save the trade and the cash?

  2. Chillo’s Moves to Avoid This Week:

    Butler -> Myers
    VC on Selwood
    Also reconsider going WHE to Heeney or Yeo

    Yep, I’m doing all of the above.

  3. Hi All this week looks like pure carnage!
    Rocky Benched and with Witts, Eddy (Bye), Butler, Balic OUT. I am looking at a donut without these trades. I may have to throw my bye structure out the window also to field a decent side. Was Hoping to get T.Lynch after he drops. And Myers wont be making his way into my side.
    Nanks swinging into the Ruck to cover witts.

    TU SPP > Durdin via Balic, Butler > Heeney (3,500) only having to field Durdin and Taranto as rookies in fwd
    Completely ruins my fwd bye structure as I already have Dahl, N Roo, Franklin
    I really don’t want to trade SPP because of byes but might have to.
    10K Short of T.Greene Really Hurts

    TD Bulter > Durdin, Balic > J.Stewart (228,900) Meaning I will have to field both Durdin and J.Stewart along. Going a week early on a player hurts also.

    Comment if anyone has any better ideas
    Cheers

    1. North have changed their extended bench today putting Durdin on it.

      Word of warning make sure you check North’s finalised team for Sunday at 5pm to see Durdin makes the cut before trading him in.

    2. If ppl are struggling with round 11 bye, they should be keeping all Adelaide players such as Otten and Hampton until rnd 13 and keep Port players such as Powell Pepper Pig as cover for all the byes.

  4. With Jenkins ruled out, it’s given me 2nd thoughts of moving Otten on & using him right up until his bye now!

    Via dpp, who to move on for Myers

    T/U …. Otten v Lions away
    T/D …. Marchbank v Freo away

    Cheers Catta

        1. Marchbank will make more over the coming weeks but with Jenkins out, I would say Otten will score more.

          Depends how much you value each at the moment. I would be more inclined to trade out Marchbank now personally, although I did offload Otten last week.

  5. Just wondering if you are in a position this week is it worthwhile to do a double downgrade for cash and then look for double upgrade next week?
    Or TD – 1 up 1 down is better this week

    1. Are there really multiple suitable downgrades this week? I can’t see them. Myers is worth the risk but he’s still very questionable.

      1. thanks all … looking at bringing in McNiece anyway as bottom dollar Def for the cash … and hope he gets a game later …

        1. Very, very risky with the byes coming up Macca where we need as many playing as possible. He’s clearly out of favour after being ‘rested’ – is there any other downgrade you could go for?

  6. Balic to Myers is locked in. $522k in the bank.

    Last five upgrade targets are Pendles (BE 161), Sloane (BE 210), Macrae, Docherty and Laird (all at essentially peak value).

    TU – take the opportunity to trade out a non-performer (either Eddy or Pickett) for GWS Lloyd?
    TD – hold the second trade this week?
    Comment – pick up one of Doc, Laird (for Otten) or Macrae (for SPP)?

    1. Got my eye firmly on Perryman, but surely you’d wanna wait til he’s played a couple of games. Big risk trading him in without seeing him at all.

  7. Tell me I’m crazy.

    Witts to Soldo . Get Paddy Ryder next week.

    Soldo is on ground this week and Parsons loopholed.

    This also frees up heaps of cash for my Byes.

    Also Soldo will be great cover for Nank if he misses a few weeks.

    Go on tell me I’m crazy:)

  8. Thoughts on Otten –> Zac Williams? They both share a round 13 bye, so structurally it makes no difference.

    TU: Go for it.
    TD: Hold off, Otten will be back to his best with Jenkins out of the side.

    1. To me, any trade that nabs a premium is a good trade, and if trading otten out allows you to get Williams I’m all for it!

      1. I would tend to agree, if it weren’t for that bloody round 11 bye. I’m now thinking that I might wait until round 11, at which point I can trade Newman out for somebody like Williams, thus giving me an extra player during round that round. Rounds 12 and 13 are looking great for me, so Otten can be upgraded in round 12 (currently leaning towards Roberton, but it will depend on who I can afford), after which I will have a complete backline.

  9. I am at a loss as to what to do this week – Balic and Butler are my two outs, Myers my one in, leaving me with $489 900. What forward to get in… I wanted Heeney, but just a few k short
    TU – Buddy?
    TD – better options – please comment who!!

    or WHE to someone?? ARRGGGHH

    1. Nothing wrong with buddy – his ceiling is great. I’m steering clear of him due to his downs being too frequent and too low.

  10. With both Witts and Preuss, I need another ruckman.

    TU – Preuss to Martin, Williamson to Myers
    TD – Preuss to Strnadica (Nankervis to ruck), Williamson to Yeo

      1. Nankervis is there for FWD/RUC cover.. can see why. Cut losses with Preuss as if Martin is traded in then it will push Witts to the bench and that is an absolute waste. Then you now have that link open for cover if ever needed.

  11. Hampton to Myers (via berry switch from mid to def)
    Parfait to Walters ( via yeo from fwd to mid
    Yes Walter role will change with hill back in team but think he may make some good coin and can then be used to upgrade the mids and move yeo back to fwds
    Before these trades I have 23 which is more than most as I kept roo treloar and beams

  12. Hooray the weekend is here!

    I am thinking of going Balic to Myers as i can’t seem him playing senior footy anytime soon.

    Thoughts on my second trade?

    T/u Otten -> Laird
    T/d WHE -> Yeo or JJK

    Was keen on Heeney but a Eagles player suits my byes much better.

    Cheers!

  13. Firstly will be doing Butler to JPK. To get enough cash I will have to do

    TU WHE-Lloyd (Means I will have to play parsons on the field)

    TD Otten-Mcniece (Allows me to loophole my backline players and parsons will be on the bench)

    I also already have Myers

  14. Thinking of rolling the dice on one of the Adelaide Fwd rookies

    T/u greenwood
    T/d gallucci

    Comments – better to go with Stewart (ESS) or McInnes

  15. With the late game teams announced I managed to avoid carnage this week.

    No bench cover and that includes holding Butler and Rocky.

    Wondering if I should rookie correct now and swap Pickett for meyers? I’m assuming Meyers’ JS is pretty solid?

    *20 trades left, $45k, McGrath/MBank/SReid types acting as ideal future upgrades to fallen premos*

    T/U – go for it, bank the small cash, Pickett is a must move before the byes and Meyers should have a good run of games over the byes.
    T/D- just hold. punk rock. (screw it and fly by the seat of your pants this year, a couple options still on the horizon)

    1. A good option due to his previous history (2012: 104 avg, 2013:103.8 avg) but last night’s score was heavily inflated by 17 tackles and only 5/17 disposals contested. If he scores 85+ next week then strongly consider selecting him.

      3

        1. If he tons up next week, he’s almost a must. Multiple 100+ seasons in his career, has the rd 12 bye, just about the perfect M8/M9. You could go SPP to Scooter after next week and bank 40K.
          The only concern is injury.

  16. TU Balic to JPKennedy and get donut in forward line
    TD Balic to West coast JKennedy and have Myers and Barret on ground in mids?

  17. Changed my VC from Danger to Bont in the last couple of minutes. With that failing who do I go as my captain:

    TU: Docherty, who hasn’t got below 91 and is looking fairly consistent.
    TD: Laird, who is versing Brisbane which should be a thumping
    Comment: JPK or Pendles who could be risky options.

  18. Who to get – Myers or McInnes. I know Myers currently has better JS, but if the Eagles accounts for the Bombers, I think that may change. McInnes obv also has the better bye.

    Thoughts coaches?

    T/U – get Myers he will play the next 3-4 games and on the bubble.
    T/D – get McInnes, his prospects are better if Eagles keep winning.

  19. Upgrade butler to anyone

    T/U – Yeo
    T/D – Nank

    Or Greene could be another option even though he could get in trouble

  20. Thoughts much appreciated
    Option 1: WHE to Goldstein via dpp.
    That will give me rucks of Goldy and Sandy with Nank to the fwd line, or
    Option 2: WHE to JKK.
    Leaving Nank and Sandy as my rucks.
    Please help.

  21. Who to captain?

    T/u Titch (Little worried about Greenwood tag)
    T/d Laird (Not the greatest record against lions…but we are utter crap right now)
