    Round 4

    I went with Cripps - ruined my week.

    Whats Happening?

    Yeah it has been rather slow. But thankfully both public and patreon podcasts have been released. Thanks @Marcus SCC and @Fbdonkey - much appreciated

    Round 7 - Slam Dunk, Neale down (and pray), feeling a bit Dusty = SC Carnage!!!

    I had to deal with no Flynn, too. I didn't want to lose him but I didn't want to have to live with Treacy's poor scores, either. So I moved Treacy to the fwds and brought in Mumford! I get Mumford's points and money-making potential without losing out on Flynn. Good move or bad? [Mumford, by...

    Round 7 - Slam Dunk, Neale down (and pray), feeling a bit Dusty = SC Carnage!!!

    Tex is having a good season. But how good? According to @sirswampthing: 100+ possies and 25+ goals in the first six games of a season has only been done 7 times since 1970: Jezza; T Daniher; K Templeton; Gaz Snr x 2; Carey and now Tex. That's pretty decent company.

    Round 7 - Slam Dunk, Neale down (and pray), feeling a bit Dusty = SC Carnage!!!

    Dunkley and Dangerfield to move on for me. But it's a question of balance and timing: if I trade D and D to premiums I get points on field if I downgrade cashed up rookies I get money in the bank I'm going to need the dollars to bring in the two premiums I really need: MacRae and Gawn How to...

    Round 6 - In Like Flynn...

    That's a very useful site. Thanks. A warning about some of the Sunday squads: the Hawks web-site has an extended squad of 31 named which won't be reduced to normal size until 1.30pm today if a player isn't in that squad, e.g. Kosi, you can be pretty sure he'll play AFL but a player named in...

    Round 6 - In Like Flynn...

    I know you can find the teams on the individual club web-stes. Either the AFL team site: https://www.carltonfc.com.au/news/918324/vfl-team-selection-carlton-v-brisbane Or the VFL team site: https://boxhillhawks.com.au/round-2-ins-outs/ There is a VFL web-site but I don't know that you will find...

    Round 6 - In Like Flynn...

    I'm glad Flynn's back after Treacy's 16 last week. And I'm not unhappy Jones will be out for a while. I would have brought him in - cash generation - but I would have had to use a DPP as none of my rookie backs are ready to be culled. Now I can do a downgrade/upgrade this week and get at least...

    Round 5 - Highmore and other defensive disasters...

    I'm going Meek -> Hickey. Not that I'd recommend such a trade for anyone else. It could go horribly wrong. At least I already have the cash to do so. I don't need to downgrade. Some hours later: Had an afternoon nap and woke up too late to do Meek->Hickey. Damn.

    Round 5 - Highmore and other defensive disasters...

    Not an easy decision, particularly with having no real indication as to whether Kozi will play. Have you listened to the pod. They talk about what to do with Daniel. Me - I try not to trade out premiums if I can help it. I'm prepared to take the donut. But it depends on a couple of factors: how...

    Round 4 stuff

    Another week of correction trades for me: Young->Chapman and Phillips->Ridley via Dunkley and Clark The Young one is forced by injury and it gives me enough cash to bring in Ridley. I don't necessarily want to lose Phillips - although he's been disappointing - but I don't want to be without...

    Round 3 stuff

    Hi @Orallus_Maximus Glad you're tracking OK and a Happy Easter to you. I'm facing the same decision re. Sharp but it's a fairly easy one for me: I don't have Jordon so it's Sharp->Jordon. I figure the cash Jordon should generate makes the trade worthwhile. Plus, Sharp may not return this year...

    Round 2 Pondering's - What The Ruck?

    Amen to that. Even if I don't have him it's still good to see.

    SC Scoring System

    Ahhh, didn't know that. Or if I did I forgot. Thanks.

    SC Scoring System

    Minus 4 to the player who has the handball or kick clanger. But also 4 to the opposing player who takes the uncontested mark from the clanger kick. Maybe, even 2 to the opposition player who gets a handball receive from an errant handball.
