Trade Talk R22, 2014

Written by Motts on August 18 2014

By the beard of Zeus I’ve never seen an ending to a season like this. Lets run through a list of injuries from this round: Stevie J, Jimmy Bartel, JPK, Pendles, Dayne Beams, Callan Ward, Matt Suckling – and they’re just the fantasy relevant ones!

Add to that a potential MRP report on Nat Fyfe and you have what is technically known as a ‘clusterfudge’. Anyone who finished top 4, won in the first week and didn’t have to play that round would be thanking their lucky stars. That’s one hell of an advantage they’ve got.

I scraped through by 8 points over the guy that finished first in our cash league (sorry Dobbo, those ones hurt the most) which means this week I’m up against SCT’s very own Stats Supremo: Nath. With no trades left and Pendles, Beams, and JPK in my team I’m a dead coach walking.

So no point in asking me about the trades I’m making this week. How about you guys?

  1. Worst round ever – no trades and staring at one or two donuts with JPK, Pendles and Beams in midfield (excellent work trading in JPK for Stevie J last round, doh!)

    Need Pendles and Zach obrien to play – already planning for next year!!

  2. Had the week off so avoided the carnage, but still have to deal with with Beams and JPK this week, and crossing fingers for pendles, fyfe, etc. Have 1.2 mill to spend on two mids for JPK and Beams-
    T/U Watson and Barlow (favourable draws)
    T/D Rockliff and Gray (rocky a class above)

  3. Guys,

    This is the one, the round ill need to use my last trade on… My mids are: Pendles, Beam, JPK, Libba Jnr, Rocky, Fyfe, Jelwood and Miles… Shenton and Acres sit on the bench….

    My Last trade will be either:

    T/U – Beams to S.Martin via Danger (sheer form, and the top rucks never seemed to worry him)
    or
    T/D – Beams to Priddis (WCE vs Dees and Suns)

    With both, I can wait until the Pies game to see if my opponent has jumped the gun on a trade or not and see if I can save it for the GF.

    Have loved stalking this website all year for the tidbits and the Fallen Prems and Midprice Madness articles are what I credit my Deaf Blinders’ 2,952 ranking for. My first season in the top 10000.

    Thanks for your feedback on this and good luck over the next 2!

  4. Had the week off in LOEC1 and my mates league so avoided the carnage over the weekend.

    However, I’ve got Beams, JPK, Fyfe, Stevie J and Pendles in my midfield alone so there’s no avoiding carnage this week. In shock actually at how bad things look right now and a season of excellence set to be derailed by the cruellest of whims from the SC gods.

    In any case, will be using two trades to hopefully pull in the best two midfield options for the rest of the year. Given the quality of the players I’m losing I can go to pretty much anyone.

    Suggestions/advice?

  5. I was hoping to use my final two trades to upgrade Swallow to Rockliff and get mids bench coverage, but with Fyfe, Beams, Pendles, JPK and Ward in my midfield it looks like I’ll have to be creative/have luck fall my way… at least I’m not Facepalm though…

  6. OK, so the fact I STILL have Ablett and Andrew Walker in my team should tell you all you need to know about my trades this week.
    More prayer, and lots of agony over captain choice, is all I’ve got. It would be nice if it turns out the other guy has no trades left either.
    Oh, and Bucks, give Langdon a run this week! He’s top 5 for the rising star FFS

  7. Heavy week.

    Looks like my last trade will be Beams to Sloane.
    Praying for Pendles, Stevie J and Fyfe to play.
    However, I can cover 2 of the 3.

    Rank is 148 now which I’m stoked with.

    Let’s the SC gods have mercy.

  8. I’m playing Beams- C Beams that is- with no trades left.
    Hope he plays & his bro’s skills get transmitted through to him via ESP, telepathy or whatever…
    Otherwise I’m dead coach walking too.

  9. Am shattered. I Was cruising with premium back up on 3 lines and Ben brown. Now I have fyfe pendles beams Kennedy Johnson suckling to worry about. Now I’m waiting to see if any will play this week

    I went from being ranked 89 to 156 overall

    We should have a poll on which mids to bring this week?

  10. Out of the finals, lost this week, thanks to stevie j, pendles not playing as well as Roughead, as well as jpk getting injured as well as jimmy bartel, as well as dayne beams getting inured as well as…. No that was it.

    Actually am kind of happy that I’m out, now I won’t have to deal with the great conundrum of trying to patch up my sc team

  11. If someones looking for an inexpensive but good scoring POD…
    the answer is Caddy

    His last 3 weeks = 112, 50 and 140. The 50 was scored in 1 qtr against Freo, if he starts he scores well.

  12. So still playing in 4 of 4 leagues this week after managing to get the week off in 3 of them.

    Have Fyfe, Ward, D Beams & JPK with only bench coverage being C Beams unless Acres gets a run.

    Only have one cash league & opponent has Dbeams Fyfe, JPK & pendles. Hoping pendles is out & he has POD mids of Slone & Prestia vs my rocky & Griffen.

    The question I have is cash is no issue so do I trade one of out for
    T/U Slone (nulify him)
    T/D Priddis or J Lewis (both seem to be in good form)
    Comment another Mid or Fwd

    (my mids: Ward JPK joelwood Fyfe Deams Ceams Libba Griffen Acres Rocky. Fwds: Buddy Danger Parker Tex Zorko Rough Kersten Honeychurch)

  13. Had to make 2 trades for Stevie J & Bartel, then lost Pendles as well but only realised after game started – still was able to EMG loophole Hodge into the MIDs and have Hooker as my EMG in Def.

    Ended up 2396 with thanks to some nice Sunday scores from Petrie, Pav & Hodge (had to make a tough call to leave Higgins on bench and play Pav which worked out perfectly).

    Was well placed for finals with another 2 trades left.

    And after all that, lose to a bloke who somehow incredibly was able to see the future and trade out Suckling at the last minute & also had Lobbe & Zorko pull season high scores out of their a&s. Rot in hell Lobbe & Zorko.

  14. Used two trades last week; one to scrape the cash together for the other that went Minson —> Jacobs, leaving me with one switch left.

    Now Kennedy, Pendles and Beams go down… really wish I hadn’t used those trades!

  16. Well get here, who is the d#ck facepalm and what the hell was he/she on about.
    The community here run this site and if you want to now the trick about setting one up have a great bunch of people together with a similar interest.

    The owners do a great job with the Articles which is a great Help.

    Hats off to Motts, MJ, Bix Sexy, Roosta, probably missed someone, but the success is in all the people who contribute and are apart of the site.

    If you like to contribute FP feel free this is about the footy and SC if not then you know where the door is.

  17. Ward, JPK, Beams, Pendles, and now Boomer in trouble at the tribunal.
    Seems most will be in a similar situation this week. Doc Larkins reported (on 5aa) that pendles just aggravated a corkie in the warm up so fingers crossed he comes up. Sounds like Ward and Beams are done for the year though.
    4 trades and some cash in bank should hopefully put me in a decent position to cope
    Wish we could use more than 2 this week.

  18. Two Questions gang

    1) what’s the chances of Morabito taking Fyfes spot?

    2) what’s the chances of Zac Obrien who had another 30 posies this week get a game for the inform Lions?

  21. Think you may be just fine Mottsy. Suckling, Beams, Fyfe, Jpk, bartel and pendles…its a bit hard to trade your way out of that shmozzle

  22. Had the week off thankfully but with Beams, pendles, Fyfe, Harvey, bartel and stevie J in my team and only one trade left I’m in a bit of trouble i think! Hopefully the two cats boys get up, the tribunal lets boomer off, then Fyfe wins his case on appeal and pendles comes good.

    Not asking for too much am I?

  23. A calamitous weekend for a number of reasons, and knocked out if my cash league and LoEC1. However still playing 3 prelims. Should be able to field a midfield, but with my final 2 trades for Beams and Ward (JPK sits on the pine for a week). Need some help with options

    Barlow/Sloane T-up
    or
    Priddis/Murphy T-down
    or
    Rockliff/Liberatore comment

    Cheers in advance

  24. Fellas, what are the chances of the likes of shenton and acres turning up for the saints, and honeychurch making a cameo for the doggies? With those 3, the pain of losing Boomer, Fyfe, Beams (last trade out for Priddis) and JPK will be dulled somewhat…
