Who-Roo Rooy, what should you do?

Written by Big Sexy on April 15 2010

With Riewoldt the most popular player in Supercoach and placed in 54% of teams, more than likely you have a decision to make.  Best case appears to be 14 weeks on the sidelines, worst case, he’s on the pine for the rest of the season.  Either way, you can’t afford to have $600k on the bench for that long, and if your gonna use a trade, do it now!  He was the best forward, and worth every cent, so you need to be looking for the best forward!

So in the great words of Dennis Hooper in Speed there’s a bomb on a bus and it can’t drop below 50 “WHAT DO YOU DO?”….

Supercoach Talk had a poll, and first 5 in order were Johno Brown ($579k 147), Cyril Rioli ($417k 111), Ryan O’Keefe ($597k 132), Paul Chapman ($607k 121) & Matty Pavlich ($518k 98).

What do I think……

Browny, Chappy are both injury prone, and Cyril is fighting OP….. So no way I’m taking Cyril.  I love Chappy, but can’t afford the hammy.  Browny has Fevalenko by his side taking the best defender which has shown in his scores, and he is fit so I’m going with Browny with an Ave of 149.  I already have Pav, and ROK is a great option worth serious consideration.

The only other two I would consider are Didak ($530k 91) and Goodes ($568k 93) who despite poor performances thus far, are rock solid contenders in Supercoach and are certain to step-it-up.

I’m going with Brown-dog….. what/who do you think?

  1. I have Browny and ROK already so leaning towards Chappy as I love him… he has been in my side consistently for the last few season but missed out this year so might be the time to bring him and hope that this year he gets through unscathed.
    Although the Pavalator has considerable appeal seeing as though I’ll end up with an extra 80K in the bank due to their price difference.
    But if I didn’t have him then Brown Dog would be the man I’d go for, it’s a no brainer.

  2. Yeah I’ve already got JB, ROK, Chappy and Da Pav in my side so I’m looking elsewhere and Reg Grundy gets a Jumper this week.

      1. Yeah, It’s alright but my rucks suffered for it. I took a punt this year not to get any premium rucks, cos most of them are so inconsistent scoring wise, it might pay off it might not.

  3. Before you say anything, i know about his hammy’s, but I think Im gonna get Chapman. He is a gun, easily racks up 30 touches a game and kicks goals as well. I’m hoping this year is his year to put together a full season…

  4. Trading in J Brown myself, left with no choice. Spewing I swapped Buddy for Tippet too, anyone else would have been a better option.

  5. I got Browny, which means my forward line has the two Brissy JBs in it now.
    Next forward trade will be Hall/Gia for ROK or Pav – leabing heavily towards ROK of course, but we’ll see – trade won;t be for 4-6 weeks if I can get away with it.

  6. Alrdy got JB & O’K and yeap been burnt by injury cloud players before like Chappy & Cyril…. Took a punt though and went with Brennan & and bolstered up my midfield with the spare cash…. Hello Boyd 🙂

  7. How come every1 keeps leaning towards JB/ROK and PAV/ Chappy. What is wrong with DIDAK and DAVIS as a replacement? They havent had the best start but they are 2 A class players and normally consistent who play in the midfield.

    1. And if you’re looking at an immediate trade, Didak’s BE is 164 with an expected drop in price of about $30K and Davis is 149 with a similar price change. These guys are definitely worth considering but not until their prices level out and they show a bit more form.

      1. yeah higgins has been a guaranteed 100 every week. bob murphy is another option if you wanna pocket some cash aswell.

  8. yep reg grundy is the one for me i reckon. have JB and ROK already, have used a couple of trades already so im wary of the injuries cyril and chappy might get. also an extra 150k will go nicely to upgrading a rookie mid in a few weeks.

      1. i think i am still annoyed about dangerfield kickin his arse. But i suppose with dangers injury i shouldn’t be so dissapointed.

        1. I wouldn’t be making the Ziebell -> Grundy trade, surely that wont be worth using up a trade… bit of a sideways one and really isn’t necessary in my opinion.

  9. roo > rioli
    tippett > kreuzer
    frees up $121’000 to upgrade a mid such as ball or mitchell. bad idea?
    i call it my 3point play

  10. My thinking re:Roo trade is a bit different from everyone else so far that i’ve read. I’m going to swap Roo for Petersen and upgrade Scully to Cooney. I regret not putiing Cooney in my starting team, but I went with Pendles instead, only because AC’s pre season scores were below par. My plan the following week is to upgrade Henderson to Didak the week after. Thoughts??

    1. maybe save the scully trade for a week. i know cooney is going up week by week but scully gets to play the tigers this week. ching ching!

      1. Prob is that his possies don’t relate to SC scoring. Got Trengove and Martin anyway from that game…gonna bench Barlow, can you believe it!!

        1. i wouldnt be so quick to bench barlow. it didnt really work for the cats last week. perhaps theyll let jones chase some footy this week or at least not go as hard as he did to boomer a couple of weeks ago. i suppose it depends who your bench mids are. mine are shuey and jetta and i still think barlow will beat them.

          1. Barlow will almost certainly get Jones this week, that is enough for me to bench him. I will have him and Mitch Duncan benched this week.

  11. DPP question for you all: I’d like to swap voldt for goddard.

    Is this possible? Trade out voldt, move ROK from the middle to the forward line, and then bring goddard into the middle.

    I’m hoping this is what DPP what designed to do!
