  1. Delidio gone, average performance and then the 1 week lay off. Although some of my premiums didnt quite perform that well round 2 should see them pick up their game

  2. I finally unearth a decent POD in Sidebottom…..and he starts like a house on fire……only to get injured in the last qtr. Buckley says he’s out for 6-8, gotta trade him out. Lucky for me, there’s so many to choose from…….Lewis, Heppell, JPK, Beams, Danger or Wines? Decisions, decisions. ……

  3. I’m not against “corrective trades”, but I did well enough not to be too stressed (2177).
    In saying that, considering a straight swap of Sheed out van Berlo in – Sheed is looking like a mistake to be sitting on the bench at 200+k

  4. Usually hate trading in round 2 but considering downgrading Maric to TBC and upgrading Salem to Bontempelli – had Bonti in my team right up to the last minute, scored 2149 so team is doing aok and could wait another week on this

    Anyone else thinking of downgrading their second ruck?

    Cripps was a bit of a worry, but let’s see what he does this week.

  5. I usually don’t like trading this early but I might do some trades. Out of all these trades I might do one if any but all are being considered.

    Optional trades:
    Maric for Luey or TBC
    J.Anderson for different rookie
    Lonie for Bontempelli only if trade out one of my rucks
    Hibberd for Gibson
    Martin for Gray

  6. No need to panic …… yet.
    Round 2 gives us a glimpse of a player’s trend over a one off performance without any risk of losing $ in price changes. End of round 2 is the time to trade if needed.

  7. What are people’s thoughts on the Ruck situation?

    Did most score poorly because of the new system, or because they didn’t play well?

    And if it was because of the new system, would it be best to bail on the premium rucks for mid-priced rucks that scored similarly so as not to lose 2-3-400k on 2 players?

  8. What are people’s thoughts on Tex Walker and Eddie Betts are they worth trading in because I’m considering either one of those two or Bontempelli in my fwd line.

  10. Will be bringing in McIntosh.

    Tossing up cutting losses on the ruck and coming back to Luey or TBC. There’s gonna be carnage in the rucks.

  11. Need to get in B.Smith… my mistake & maybe McLovin.
    Don’t like the look of my other three Heater, Harry O & Newnes. Who to ditch?

  12. I know everyone is talking about jumping off ruck premos, but you need to remember why guys like Luey and TBC are not premium priced – injuries.
    If you burn a trade now to get one of them in and then have to trade them out again, you’ve effectively robbed yourself of a round’s worth of trades. I hope it doesn’t happen, but history has not been kind to those two.

  13. Maric to lewie

    Cripps l the Bont

    Or hold the 220k and trade to get swan next week ( will require a third trade)

  15. No trades – gotta give R2 a chance while prices are fixed. For you folks thinking of getting rid of the likes of Dusty, just remember he averaged 100 last year for good reason – he’ll give you some ripper scores!!

  17. Thinking about trading out Wells for Rich. I watched the Adelaide game and wells looked slow and a fair bit behind the play. I was tossing up between these two before the opening round and went with wells thinking that he was fully recovered from last years foot problem and rich would need more time to get up to speed. From what I could see Wells looked like the one who just had a reco not Rich.

  19. The only trades I would consider would be due to injury or rookies with low JS after a stinker first round (Oxley, Ah Saad, Cripps,) otherwise back your premiums for at least another week. I have martin, maric (not a bad game but I expected more), Lumumba and Newnes ,all.players that underperformed round one. Their low scores combined with having heeney,McIntosh and hogan on the bench lowered my score quite significantly. But I dont think its panic stations just yet. I read an article on a previous winner (cant remember what year) that was ranked 66000 after week one. Puts things into perspective. The competition isn’t over after the first round(not that I expect to win it).

  21. Griffin.

    What is everyone’s thoughts? I’m concerned.
    Not with the score but with the way it happened. Didn’t look good.

    I don’t like trading premos but I see excellent options in Wines/Lewis etc.

  22. Should I trade Cripps/Lumumba for Rich/Taylor Hunt?

    Never liked either picks and hated seeing them in my side. But listened to popular opinion as must have/high ceiling players. It killed me to see both Rich and Hunt play so well, when they were players I targeted.

    Both picks went against 2 of my supercoach rules:
    No Carlton players, Trust no ‘dark skinned’ players.

    I know i can wait till next week. But I’m worried Ablett might need to be traded next week if his shoulder ‘aint right.

  23. I’ve got to get rid of Rockliff, but as I already have Ablett, Pendlebury and Fyfe, I’m not short of elite scoring Captain options, so I’m not going to straight swap him. Instead, I’m going to bring Kane Lambert into the midfield and trade Jeremy McGovern into the forward line. This will leave me about $270k in the bank, which will help with upgrades.

    I will have a DEF/FWD Swing set with Higgins and McGovern, and a MID/FWD swing set with Lambert in the middle.

    Next week, I’ll see if there are any adjustments to be made with rookies and such.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to use the cash to upgrade someone like Goodes, Cripps or Salem for a Fallen Premium like Selwood in a few weeks time.

    My name should link to my current SC Team.

  26. Thinking of downgrading either Goldstein or Maric to Bellchambers due to this rucking madness, which will allow me to go Freeman to Vandenberg (I’m $500 short without the first trade).

  27. No trades this round since no injuries. Next round, If there is a big difference between a non-perfoming cow I have and one I don’t, then maybe swap them. How big a difference in breakevens makes using a trade worthwhile I wonder. From +100 to -100, +50 to -50, 0 to -100?

  28. I have a bit of cash tied up in Jacksch and Ahmed Saad.

    Will see how the trio of Hunt, Lonie and Lamb fare this weekend before making any snap judgments though.

    All my poor scores came from premiums so will ride this one out.

  29. Wasn’t thinking about doing any trades but now I’m thinking of ditching Ahmed saad would rather wait and see for a week but just feel as I might have more pressing matters next week
    So I already have Salem, Clark, McGrath, Hogan and ahmad saad obviously

  30. My draft league has Docherty and McDonald sitting in the free agents, worth bringing one of those in for say Ibbotson or Frawley?
    My current backline is:
    James Kelly, Harry Taylor, C Pearce, G Ibbotson, J Newes & J Frawley.

  31. thinking of a trade of a.swallow to lewis. not sure why i got swallow. believe he will average round 100 but wont be top premium where as i think lewis will be. thinking i do it this week, so i can have 2 corrective trades next week if needed? thoughts?

  32. OK, i got rocky and sidebum, both did me proud in round 1, both now injured for weeks and therefore gotta go (or do they – i’m open to comments to the contrary). rest of mids comprise rich, gaz, pendles, vandenberg, van berlo, acres, heeney, e-yolmen, freeman.

    do i straight swap the injured duo for other prems like lewis, priddis, or think outside-the-box somehow?

  34. hey guys need some desperate help here…lowest score of my supercoach career this round (1963)…last in m private league and am being beaten by newbies in their first year AND I WORK WITH THEM. THE PAIN IS EXCRUCIATING!!!

    Picked Bewick (ty for tht GOLD nugget Sammy) in my backline and Newnes in the middle. You guys mention in the podcast to hold off for another week but, I watched both these players for their entire games and have no hope they will do better. Both ran through the middle and back did not have any followers (especially bewick) but just didn’t show anything. I got Newnes only because of the hype but geary,dustin,armitage,Stevens- too many players who’ll touch it more than him. Bewick showed no run, seemed disinterested.

    My question is do I get rid of Bewick for Taylor Hunt/Docherty? Saw TH and he didnt seem to have a run with role all game. Next trade Rich for Newnsy, hes cheaper and will definitely score more than Newnes every game I think (dont know how i overlooked him); but now with Rocky out, he is their no 2 dun behind Beams and might get tagged in addition to being moved from back to middle, so will be as effective as round 1?

  37. What’s happened to the player search function when you hit the T button?

    Seems you can only sort/filter the replacement list without actually directly searching for the player you want.

    Am I missing something?
