    1. If The Blues win tonight . The lids off.

      In SC ..

      I have gone the Gov. He’s getting paid a heap and he’s from WA . He’s also the easiest to down grade.

      I have had to fade….. Hewett ( need the cash for rookies. ) and Cripps ( PTSD from last year.) Short , I started last year , I hope he doest go to big early
      Hewett is my fall back if Whit gets hurt.

      Gibcus and Durdin are locked in at D7 and F7 as Emergency’s

      Best of luck to everyone tonight !


      1. Last minute restructure .

        Hewett and Short in. !

        Had to fade Durdin.

        Gibcus . Short . Hewett . and Gov locked.


          1. I’m a little upset I had to fade Durdin, I may have to correct and get him before price changes. I am so happy I found a way to get Hewett in.

            I was listening to a SC podcast with a guest who had finished top 10 last year, had a very interesting g take on Hewett. He drew a correlation between Hewett, Touk and Steele. He points out both Touk and Steele were taggers with Sub 100 averages for several years before having the shackles released and breaking out. Now I don’t expect 120+ from Hewett. I still think it provides a decent blue print for what’s possible if Hewett doesn’t have to play defensively. Get on the Hewett train.


    1. Looks like he will be back for next week but this round you don’t lose trades so It would only be one trade to bring him back, so if you think the loss of around 50 points is worth keeping the trade then go for it


  1. Evening all!

    Short, Dusty, Gibcus and Hewett for me tonight, but keeping an eye on Cripps, McGovern and Curnow purely because they’ve been in an out of my team this past week.

    Good luck tonight and let’s see the Blues end the streak!!!


  2. I hope carlton have a read hot crack tonight but could see richmond monstering them. Just hope its a decent contest


  3. Will Wilmott slot straight back into the lions backline in round 2? Coleman out must help…

    Crucial for my structure.. want too down grade chapman


  4. Owens a must?
    Have no room for him unless I trade Brayshaw all the way down and grab a Stewart or Heeney instead on another line…

    TU: take Owens and pick up another uber.
    TD: hold Andy Brayshaw and play durdin/chapman onfield


  5. Does anyone else feel like tonight is the real start to the season???
    Expecting some thumbs down from the Dogs and Demons supporters, but maybe its historical, maybe it’s that Wednesday nights just don’t feel like a footy night, but…..
    I am so much more pumped for tonight than I was for last night.

    Not a supporter of either team tonight FYI


  6. I know it’s off topic, but the G is wonderful tonight, so happy to see so many people around the oval after 2 years!!


  7. Geez don’t have cerra in my team but looks reall class in the Carlton midfield. Blues have looked stronger as the game has gone on. Great reaction for the docherty goal and is great to see him play. Will be a ripper second half


    1. His goal. One of the season highlight. And not even half time in the second game of the year. Great stuff


  8. Blues lead at the Half – 39 – 31 … and The DOC is back baby!!!

  9. I know this was mentioned last night but just to confirm, SC plus now has live scores, previously you required a HS subscription to receive this. A welcomed change!


    1. Spot on Joestar but I do remember previous years where they do this for round 1 and then stop it for round 2 or 3 to try and suck more people into HS subscriptions, hope that’s not the same thing this year….


      1. That was my concern as well, but I went into an article on the SC website, let me try and find the link, that stated it was new for SC plus users.


        1. . LIVE SCORES!

SuperCoach Plus is free with a masthead or Code Sports subscription, or you can sign up for a Year Pass for $24.95


    1. Just had a look on AFL website for detailed stats when I saw your post Shaggi, don’t seem to show ‘clangers’ anymore but he has 7 ‘turnovers’ (whatever the hell that means). But also interested to see that he hasn’t attended a centre bounce yet!


  10. Cracking game this … can the Blues get back?
    Anyone at the G … please find Mottsy and check on his welfare …

  11. Durdin 44 to HT and still on 44 5 minutes into the final QTR? Just can’t get near it or injured?


      1. Never in the history of man has there ever been a business that instruments a method of extracting more profit. Human beings are incorruptible and will never be swayed by money. Greed is a fiction!


  12. Carlton mids have looked amazing tonight but word of warning: let’s not forget that Richmond have made an artform over the last 5 years of allowing opposition mids to run amok (while usually still winning the game) so I will be waiting another week before making any correctional trades for Carlton players.

    Congrats to the blues supporters out there though, been a long drought in round one for you guys. Atmosphere at the ground sounds bloody amazing.


  13. We equalled the most 50m penalties given in a match, that’s very disappointing in terms of our discipline.


  14. BLUES GET UP!! 7 , goals 5 in last quarter to 1 goal, 1 … amazing … and very poor Tigers … lot of players stopped running it seems!

    So, the concern for Mottsy still exists … but maybe not until morning … and you’ll find him under a bar somewhere!

    Subject to final scaling and adjustments (33 points too be awarded still)

    Short scored next to nothing for entire second half …

    Well done to those that took Hewett, Cripps, Cerra and even McGovern and Durdin …


  15. The ones I was most worried about hurting me have. Hewett and Cripps both looked very good.

    Seagull not playing and had some doubts based on his wing role and a lacklustre preseason so I traded him for Dawson after seriously considering Doc.
    With Laird out for a bit I thought the guaranteed mid time might be a better bet.

    If I’d known yesterday before the game started I’d have gone back to Dunks. Ahh well, that’s rolling lockout for you.


    1. Always a good sign when you get down and can come back. Means you can adjust in-game. They lost the first qtr against the dees as well in the preseason and adjusted.

      And there is the little thing of their best player still to come back in.


  16. Dont believe i am saying this as a pie but – well done baggers great emotional win for your skipper and the doc of course, second time around for the boss could be huge.


  17. Fingers crossed berry and Rowell can perform this weekend and ease the pain of not starting Crippa. Also was cursing myself for not starting McGovern at the half but he went missing in the second half. But definitely has a nice role and kick ins. Should be a good pick for those who have him..

    Also curious as too why alot of people seem to be fading chapman? Seeing him in alot less teams the past 24 hours.


      1. Yeah missed the gibcus boat but was never really keen on a KPP he’ll be a warm body but a slow burn. I think I’ll just have too Hold chapman now. Already have de koning, McCartin and hinge.


  18. Had Hewitt all pre season change to sicily today ouch it hurt watching him dominate the last qrt, watch Sicily get 60 now


  19. CBA’s – Round 1 Game 2 – Carlton 29 – Matthew Kennedy 24, Marc Pittonet 22, Patrick Cripps 22, George Hewett 22, Adam Cerra 19 & Tom De Koning 7

    Richmond- Toby Nankervis 20, Trent Cotchin 20, Jack Graham 16, Dustin Martin 15, Liam Baker 14, Shai Bolton 9, Ivan Soldo 8, Dion Prestia 7, Shane Edwards 4, Jake Aarts 1, Noah Balta 1 & Marlion Pickett 1

    Who makes way for Carlton when Walsh returns?


    1. Hey nato as an on looker i would think obrien would make way and the blues rotate and become stronger with resting up forward only can help in that respect, i watched voss play and marvelled like everyone else the way he was able to influence games and this time around he is more ready to be able to pass on his knowledge as a coach, i think i could really see the way the blues were able to protect the space in the guts in that last quarter really had his name written all over it ,
      The big thing from tonight is get george in your side


      1. The question regarding Walsh was about CBA’s as they only had 4 different midfielders in there all night.
        With the addition of Walsh it becomes 5, so is it a heavy cut on appearances for Hewett/Cerra or is it an even spread for them all.

        Also keep note this was a depleted Richmond midfield with Prestia down early. It is also only the first round where this score will only affect his pricing once, so it may potentially suck many in as they are chasing points and it could for all we know be a failure.

        Coaches need to stay weary of potential outcomes and not make impulse decisions of trading players in or out after 1 good or bad score
