Time to get back into it!  Team so far, will tinker as I start to do more research, thoughts from the pro's would be greatly appreciated!
Rookies are placeholders for now. ;D

DEF: Laird, Blakely, Williams, Birchall, Kelly, Wigg (Duursma, Jordan)
MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Fyfe, Dusty, Sloane, Viney, Setterfield, Valente (Stocker, McFadyen, Smith)
RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Graham)
FOR: Danger, Heeney, Greene, Lukosious, Hill, Cavarra (Stengle, Mosquito)

Defence looks good. Liking Blakely myself, although fitting him in over or as well as Whitfield is tough.
Mids and rucks are stacked, very strong but I feel it leaves fwds a bit weak, with Greene at F3.
I'd downgrade one of Sloane or Viney to either a rookie or Libba/Miles type and upgrade Lukosious to a premo.

Thanks mate, still early days, but agree my forward line is fairly weak compared to the rest, I think I will eventually move Sloane.

Good looking team JV.   Better value than Viney around and would swap him out and look at Tom Lynch or Josh Kennedy as F3/4 option instead.

Version 2.0  Trimmed down my mids and ruck to strengthen my def and for.

Def: Laird, Whitfield, Williams, Collins, Rozee, Wigg (Rooks)
Mid: Mitchell, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Merrett, Bennell, Setterfield, Valente (Rooks)
Ruc: Grundy, Kreuz
For: Danger, Westhoff, Smith, Greene, Rook, Rook (Rooks)

Like this team JV.     Do not see need for Westhoff and would have Heeney over him.     Greene is a toss of the dice but will be great value if he stays on the park.   Likewise I see Kruez being my r2 come round 1, 

All the best for 2019.    May need some help from you for my AF team if you can find the time.    Have you posted a team for AF yet?     I still cannot understand the differences required in player selection and trading to be a solid AF Coach.

Second team is extremely well balanced. Some nice pods as well. Good place to start.

Haha, I'm the opposite!  Only started SC a few years ago, to me AF is straightforward.  The scoring system in SC is what I need to get my head around and am definitely improving.  But I haven't even looked at AF yet!  We can trade tips on each end mate!  ;)

With the Tom Mitchell injury news, my team looks soooo much more balanced!

MID: Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Dusty, B. Crouch, Setterfield, Valente, West (rook, rook, rook)

Hey mate!

Pretty solid side.

Think Zwilliams is a must down back though he could be a top 5 defender come seasons end.

In saying that Blakely and Newman are both great picks and should both be decent pods.

Honestly think Newman has just as good of a chance at being a top defender, only room for 1 of them though.

Made a couple more changes in bold.  I really think Brayshaw is underpriced and think he'll be just as good as Oliver less money.  And Greene over Wingard seems better value.

Yeah I think I'm going to have to take a loot at JLT, but I much prefer the rest of my team with Kreuz in it.  I could opt to go with another ruck like Stef, Witts etc, but feel like after Grundy and Gawn, Kreuz has the highest ceiling.
Title: Re: Cardiomegaly SC 2019
Post by: Money Shot on January 24, 2019, 09:39:54 AM
No Gawn definitely does make the rest of your team look stronger.

What are you expecting out of Newman. I personally see him going 85-90. Would that be enough at his price?
Title: Re: Cardiomegaly SC 2019
Post by: Ringo on January 24, 2019, 10:37:34 AM
Trust you have enough cash to allow you another 8 rookies you would need a minimum of $1m to fill imo and allow for movement if those already named do not start.
Nice Structure and team though. Newman an interesting pick though.
Title: Re: Cardiomegaly SC 2019
Post by: jvalles69 on January 25, 2019, 10:50:18 AM
Thanks for the comments, I've done another update.

DEF: Lloyd, Blakely, Williams, Roberton, Collins, Wigg (Duursma, Kelly)

Going Lloyd as a POD to Laird.  Newman to Roberton for the extra value may possibly go down to a Birchall if he plays.

MID: Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Oliver, Setterfield, Bewley, Atkins (Stocker, McFadyen, Smith)

Still feel Dusty will have his quiet games, going uber premium from the start with Macrae.  Not 100% sold on Brayshaw so with the Newman money I've gone Oliver.

RUC: Grundy, Kreuz (Fort)

Risking no Gawn, will see how Kreuz looks in JLT.

FOR: Danger, Smith, Wingard, Greene, Hill, Cavarra (Corbett, Mosquito)

Not sure about Heeney's role, he and Mills could finally get the mid time they should have, but until I see it I think Wingard is better value.

I feel like a have a good mix with what I think is the best player in each line.  A few value picks who I think can be top 10 in their lines.  Minimum keepers 9-11, max keepers 11-14.

Team is looking good, very nice midfield.
Only concern is Roberton but if he can reach 2017 average he will definitely be a good pick.

Thanks man, this the year I make an impact!  Brayshaw/Newman vs Oliver/Roberton, almost feel like the Brayshaw/Newman combo might be slightly ahead.  Final team like all of us will depend on rookies.

It's a hard one, because I quite like Oliver, but I am still unsure on Newman v Roberton. I've gone with Withergoat who is a littler more pricey at D3, but obviously your decision is for D4.

Yeah, I could upgrade Williams to Witherden and go with a Birchall, but I think Williams will be up there.

A few adjustments to take it closer to a guns and rooks approach.  Still tossing up between Libba and Miles or drop down for an extra rook.  Currently have 180K in the bank to make adjustments if more money needs to be spent.

DEF: Lloyd, Witherden, Williams, Collins, Burgess, Wing (Duursma, Kelly)
MID: Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, Neale, Dusty, Miles, Lately, Bewley (Hind, Hayes, Atkins)
RUC: Grundy, Goldy (Fort)
FOR: Danger, Dev, Wingard, Setterfield, Hill, Cavarra (Corbett, Petrucelle)

Now to sit and play the waiting game.

Post by: ubeaut on February 08, 2019, 08:36:35 PM
Mids and Rucks look great. A little weak at F4 and D4.
I would do one of three things.
1. Drop Neale/Oliver to a cheaper premo to get the cash to get Greene in (+ your 180k)

2.Drop Miles to a rookie, get Greene and  a Roberton/Smith type at D4.

3.Drop Neale/Oliver to a rookie and get Greene and another back premo. Or Roberton/Smith and another fwd premo.

If you don't want Greene JJK, Worpel or even Parfitt could be options.

I have Roberton and Greene at D4 and  F4  and a few differences in the premium  selections between  M1-M4
Love it. HOLD

More minor changes.  40K left.  Have strengthened DEF and FOR by downgrading Goldy to Darcy and Miles to Walsh.

MID: Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Dusty, Zerrett, Walsh, Gibbons, Bewley (Lately, Hind, Hayes)

DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Williams, Roberton, Collins, Quaynor (Duursma, Hore)
MID: Macrae, Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe, B. Crouch, Walsh, Butters, Hately (Hind, Bewley, Gibbons)
RUC: Grundy, Goldy (Clarke)

If Libba goes 100+ again you almost have to start him I reckon.

Still like Witherden, Neale and Libba so working out the best options.  If I go Lloyd to Witherden, Macrae back to Neale I could probably move Walsh (or another rook) to Libba.

Just throwing out a hypothetical, if Greene was to get injured or cop a three week ban in the first few weeks, who would you trade him to?

I feel the forward rookies aren't very deep and sitting Greene at F3 means you're going to have to likely field 4 of them if it all turns pear shaped. I think you have reasonable options along the other lines if a Libba/Newman/Smith were to flop. Just not sure about the forward line though.

Another crack.  Have 210K spare so let me know where you think it would be best used, if there are any rookies I should look at changing over.  Pretty close to settles on this, mid premos might move around a little.  I'm considering Keepers are Lloyd, Laird, 1 of Williams/Smith, Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Grundy, Gawn, Danger, Heeney, Greene, possibly 1 of B. Crouch/Liberatore.  Gives me 11-13 keepers.  10 trades for downgrades, 10 trades for upgrades (in a perfect world).  Possibly thinking I could use the extra 210K to bump Brad up to another keeper mid, but injury worries aside, think he can produce close enough to a keeper for at least the early stages.

DEF: Lloyd, Laird, Williams, Smith, Collins, Burgess (Duursma, Hore)

Personally do not like Macrae - Prior to last year only averaged 100 over the previous 4 years. No coincidence he shot up with Libba not playing last year so concerned he may fall back to those smaller averages. Upgrade for me.
Your team though I would downgrade Macrae to Oliver, Fyfe or similar and then upgrade Libba to a prem with the 210 plus extra. Think a little risky with both Libba and Crouch.
For cheap rookies would also be looking at Atkins and Scott both mids at 117k if named.

Thanks, I have toyed with the idea of downgrading Macrae and upgrading Crouch/Libba so I have 2 keepers over 1, like Oliver and M. Crouch etc.  Don't want the headache of Fyfe for another year I don't think.  And I don't think Dusty will push over 105.  So that 2nd premo to replace Libba/Crouch is perplexing me.

I'm getting headaches with the whole Macrae situation.
I've got all of Macrae, Cripps, Oliver and Neale. With B Crouch next in line.
I am also toying with the idea of downgrading Macrae and using the cash to upgrade Crouch.

Ok, I think I'm set bar rookies being named round 1.  Macrae + B. Crouch have become Oliver and Coniglio giving me one more keeper and reducing my risk with B. Crouch.  Hopefully Macrae drops a little in price so I can pick him up later cos I still think he will be top of the pack.

Think too strong in defence with both Laird and Lloyd.  Personally would only start 1.

Your team though and need to go with gut feel on structure and premiums.

Gut feel is that Laird and Lloyd will still be the top 2 defenders.  Feel I will lose significant points if I downgrade one of them.

Will have to look at that, just have a feeling Neale will go to another level at the Lions.

Good team JV,  light in mids to pay for the depth in fwds, def and rucks so understand where you are going.

Thanks man, I feel it's balanced across all lines, the only other option is to downgrade Laird and upgrade Liberatore.  I feel Laird will be a keeper so I want him at some stage, but if I traded Laird to a cheaper guy that pans out to be a keeper and turn Libba into another keeper then that might even be better long term?  ???

Need some advice at the tail end of the season.  I have 8 trades and 550K in the bank.  First trade is Hore to Hurn, but then I'm stuck what to do as the wrong rookies in the wrong positions need to go...

DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Laird, Hurn, Smith, Williams (Durrsma, Logue)
MID: Fyfe, Macrae, Cripps, Neale, Oliver, Sloane, Clarke, Bewley (Baker, Scott, Hately)
RUC: Gawn, Grundy (Fullarton)
FOR: Dunkley, Dangerfield, Boak, Kelly, Gray, Heeney (Setterfield, Gardner)

On second look, my back line looks reasonably strong without Hurn at this stage, maybe I use that chunk of change to bring in another premo mid, all with low BE's though and Scott would take most of that change to upgrade...

Midfield is too weak, need to get another premo in there ASAP.

That's the way I'm leaning currently, Scott upgrade or cut my losses with him and leave him on the bench?

Issue is Hore and Duursma are the ones that need moving on, but they can't be traded to a mid unfortunately.  :-\

What about Scott to Naish via Duursma & then Duursma up to Josh Kelly?

Could do that, or would be the same as going Hore to Naish and Scott to Kelly.  At least Duursma keeps any possible DPP link around and Hore has the higher BE, plus both won't be on field any more, I think I'd prefer to play Logue over both at this stage.

I'd do that, I'm ditching Hore this week, Logue can sit at D6 for a few weeks until Whitfield is ready.

Yeah Logue looks solid, if he keeps this up I might not need to upgrade him and saves me a trade.

Not necessary this week but I would look at one of mid rookies to Hayden North can sit at M9 but give you DPP to forwards and only 102k.  North have 5 Saturday Night Sunday games left so ideal loophole as well.
But agree Mids need strentghening this week with cash. Scott to Kelly would do.

Thanks for that, I'll keep that in mind, but I brought Fullarton in for the loophole, DPP would be handy though.
