Little disappointed with our efforts on the weekend given we traded well for the byes.  The TEAM line-up is as follows:

Ok Coaches, we dropped the dead weight on our bench last week and picked up Tom Lynch in the process.  Little bit more tricky with trades coming up.  Mainly because we’ve been going early on a lot of rookies this year (Fisher, Greenwood, Cousins).  As it stands, we have only five players missing from the TEAM this week.  I’m throwing the floor open to all Coaches.  If you’d like to make a trade suggestion then leave it in the comments below.   It will then be assessed by the Coaching Staff (Thumbs UP/DOWN).  Fire away!


** UPDATE at 6.45pm on 7/6/17 **

Otten to Scharenberg seems like a popular move according to the Coaching Staff so we’ll put that to a vote.  Scharenberg looks safe with the growing injury list at Collingwood.  The next question to address is Sandilands and whether we want to move him on right now or hold for another two (his bye next week).  If there is enough support to trade him over the next day, then I’ll put up another poll tomorrow for his replacement.  Thanks for your help, Coaches!!

** UPDATE at 11am on 8/6/17 **

The Coaching Staff has spoken……Sandilands has done his job and now he can cure the old hamstring tightness on his own time.  With the trade of Otten to Scharenberg (big majority!) we can literally trade in anybody to replace Sandilands.  By that I mean, with the use of DPPs we can trade in any Ruckman, Forward or Midfielder as we see fit!  (Either a premium Ruck or Nank swings into the Ruck for now).  Personally I’d be looking to an elite MID, one that may have already ‘fallen’ and had their Bye last week (wink wink).  Since the options are plentiful, you may choose up to five players from the poll below.  The player with the most votes gets a guernsey for the TEAM this week.  Poll closes just before kick-off tonight (7.20pm)………..


Best replacement for Sandilands? (five choices)

  • Tom Rockliff (BRL) $591k MID (24%, 63 Votes)
  • Marcus Bontempelli (WBD) $554 MID (15%, 40 Votes)
  • Elliot Yeo (WCE) $515k FWD - Rd12 Bye (9%, 23 Votes)

  1. Otten to Scharenberg
    Just the one trade this week because:
    – We have no cash,
    – there are no other worthwhile rookies on the bubble,
    – barrett and stewart have more cash to make,
    – newman to lloyd next week,
    – no other rookies are ripe.


    1. We have to think ahead to next week though. At this stage we have 17 on the field including Parsons and Bolton.
      We might have to trade out Myers or JStewart or even go Sandi to a fwd like Yeo


  2. The Team seems in a pickle pretty much like my own.

    Thinking Otten to Scharenberg and Stewart to Hibberd.

    Really need an extra premo Mid more though so maybe for now Myers to Scharenberg moving Adams to the Mids and , Newman to Hibberd.


  3. Remove Sandi and go sideways to Witts then that covers us for next week too and Witts has been very consistent all season


  4. Make that 6 players missing with Harbrow.

    Agree with Tebs Otten to Scharenberg (if named) which makes $212k

    Agree with Natopotato88 Sandi (if not named) to Witts


            1. Everyone says “Injury History” but when they have a good season people tend to change the subject…. Everyone has an injury history in a contact sport.


    1. Only if Lloyd bounces back of course. Wouldn’t be the first premium who has returned from concussion that has put up sub par scores from then on.


  5. In addition to Rockliff and Bontempelli, we could consider Parker, Cripps, Zorko or even the Little Master.


  6. Would it be fair to say that ‘wink wink’ was not directed at Rocky, Schwartz?? Think you may have been hinting that the bloke coming 2nd in the poll!


    1. Both are coming off the bye and Rocky made an appearance in MJs Fallen Premiums this morning. I have Rocky and Bont in my current Top8 MIDs list so I could live with either being traded into the TEAM. All good!


  7. One other thing that I would point out is that although the best option in terms of increased points is to replace Sandilands with a midfielder or forward, moving Nankervis into the ruck in the process, but the problem is that this would leave us with no ruck bench cover.


  8. IN – Scharenberg & Rockliff
    OUT – Otten & Sandilands

    With Sandi confirmed out for another two weeks, the potential is there for an extra 250+ pts for the TEAM from Rocky. He received 63 votes from the 92 Coaches that participated. JPK is our VC tonight with Pendles as back-up on Monday. Good luck, Coaches!
