    Usually the scores in fantasy and super coach are pretty much close to being the same, but occasionally you get something like this: O’Meara: fantasy (78) super coach (45). Huh?

    • j

      May 12, 2018 at 4:49 pm

      Different way of calculating scores obviously. O’Meara had shit effective disposals (46% I believe), which affected his SC score.

        May 12, 2018 at 6:10 pm

        Pity fantasy doesn’t have the same captaincy options like SC does.
        I’d be having a good round if not for Tich.

    Lowest score so far by a long way: the pig, Tich.

    Is Ed Curnow the real deal

    Mutch is not much good. Glad I avoided him.

    • LW

      May 12, 2018 at 7:34 pm

      He’s a rookie. He’s scored a 71 and a 66 to go with his 43 today. Hardly bad by rookie standards?

      Do you people only consider a player’s most recent score or what?

      • Mr Burns

        Mr Burns

        May 12, 2018 at 7:38 pm

        On these forums, pretty much. I remember everyone talking of trading Treloar after his score of 84…

      • gf

        May 12, 2018 at 7:57 pm

        No, I’ve picked my rookies pretty well. You can’t take them all, and I’m glad with the ones I passed on.

    God damn Toby Mclean. Really taking the shine of Captain Macrae.

    Ed Philips or Brayden Ainsworth?

    • David C

      Might get both in a double downgrade.

    McRae is so good to watch when you have captained him. I’m in love

    • Admiral Tug Benson

      May 12, 2018 at 9:30 pm

      Put mcinerary in R2 and with stef dominating he is decently worth the 71 so far great job mate.

      Naughton rolled an ankle in the first quarter.

    May 12, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    Ed Curnow… posts an awesome score, bur will miss at least a week for touching an umpire… moron.

  20. The Spud

    May 12, 2018 at 9:55 pm

    Glad I didn’t captain Titch, however I still expected a bit more from Stef

  21. Titan

    May 12, 2018 at 10:25 pm

    Glad I Captained macrae. Good one I traded omeara for E Phillips. Bargain @170k. Richo said he was one of the clubs form players. Bugger I didn’t field thou lol. Next week.

  22. Swannies

    May 12, 2018 at 10:35 pm

    I got Phillips as well. Will be fielding next week. Now to wait as people jump on that train lol. I also read what richo said about him. I traded bandfield to him.

      Did you see Carlton vs The Bulldogs a few Friday’s ago?

  24. Titan

    May 13, 2018 at 1:16 am

    Wow. I’ve shot nearly into top 500. Making huge ground on the comp. Gone up nearly 41,500 spots since round 1.

    I’m 1960 with treloar and Murray left.
    Be nice if I can hold top 1000 by tomoz night.

    Roll on tomoz night. I’ve got a wad of cash and bottomed out premos to buy lol.

  25. Diggerz

    May 13, 2018 at 1:34 am

    I’m not bloody surprised titan. Your advice is either spot on or around the mark. I’ve taken a few things you said. Only one didn’t work that well but is not bad. It was getting crouch in 2 weeks ago (still got 106,97). But I traded Jacob’s to stef (heaps told me not to). Got taranto in 5 weeks ago, got macrae in after the dockers game. I took your advice on trading E Phillips in this week. Most importantly having macrae captain the last 3 weeks. It doesn’t really surprise me your rocketing through the rankings. I’m upto 3,000 now. So I’m content lol. I’m 2033 with Murray left. with So I guess a cheers is in order mate.

  26. Titan

    May 13, 2018 at 1:40 am

    No worries mate. Happy to help. Wish I had of bloody fielded Phillips though lol. I had Mutch instead. Bit risky to have 1st gamer as starter. But he looks good…..Haha Yer the crouch situation didn’t go to plan. Although not terrible. But could of been alot better. Good score. Looks a hard round.

  27. Simon

    May 13, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Calvin had a stat during the week about how if you’d captained Macrae over Titch the past few weeks you’d be 91 ahead. If you did it this week you can add nearly a hunj to that!

  28. Grovers Guns

    May 13, 2018 at 8:56 am

    After watching the game live last night – Billings is my first trade after lockout. Patience has gone and he doesn’t look anything like a footballer. Hello Devon Smith

    • peter

      May 13, 2018 at 1:07 pm

      stop on I have billing and smith Billing going. I have a shit score although I had 8 score over a 100 I have 1850 with Kelly to play spewing

  29. Mad Fishc

    May 13, 2018 at 9:27 am

    How did Brendan Ah Chee look? Scored alright and thinking of getting him in this week, but don’t know what his job security is like?

    • j

      May 13, 2018 at 11:56 am

      62% time on ground probably suggests that if he continues playing similar TOG next week or 2 as they ease him back into things, he probably won’t score as well as 95

  30. Titan

    May 13, 2018 at 9:29 am

    Worse bit for curnow owners. He gets a week but also round 12 bye.

  31. Jeremy

    May 13, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Is Ronke worth the money? Figure that he will be 300k.

    • j

      May 13, 2018 at 11:36 am

      I’m guessing he’ll be under 290K – probably around 280-285K. But lets say he’s 300K – it’s less then the starting price of Christensen, which most people didn’t have an issue bringing in as a higher priced cash cow at the start of the year.

      • Jeremy

        May 13, 2018 at 6:05 pm

        I guess it’s in relation to Ainsworth and E Phillips being substantially cheaper.

        • clown4

          May 13, 2018 at 6:51 pm

          Will probably be around 300k but his breakeven will be crazy low. I would only get him if you’re fielding him. Could make another 150-200k and hasn’t done much wrong yet either.

          Really just depends on your setup as well, personally I wouldn’t sideways from a 360k rookie to a rookie 300k rookie.

  32. Champion

    May 13, 2018 at 2:07 pm

    My midfield might as well have not played this week. Titch captain, pendles late out replaced by mutch 43, Cripps, Parker, dusty, zerret, banfield and Kelly still to play. Absolute bullcrap

    • j

      May 13, 2018 at 2:22 pm

      Yeah, agree regret not trading out Dusty 2 weeks ago, or last week. Probably will regret it again next week when I again fail to do the trade.

  33. The Cricket

    May 13, 2018 at 2:21 pm

    Not watching the game – is Dusty injured or is Jacobs tagging the crap out of him?

    • j

      May 13, 2018 at 2:26 pm

      Definitely not injured.

      Likely a tag, but don’t know the extent of the tag. He seems to be scoring in short bursts, when he does extend his score – probably a result of occasional one-two handballs. He’s just not red hot at the moment. Last week he gave up a few goals to others he could have scored him self.

  35. j

    May 13, 2018 at 3:44 pm

    Dusty – easily my worst premo selection this year. Just don’t know what to do with him.

    • LW

      May 13, 2018 at 6:47 pm

      My Josh Kelly, Merrett, Dusty, Lyons and Billings picks have f**ked my season (if you can count Billings as a premo. smh)
